Clinton Compares Trump to Putin: ‘Hopefully He Hasn’t Ordered the Killing of People and Journalists’

Hillary Clinton said Monday on Bloomberg News that President Donald Trump has "tendencies toward authoritarianism," adding that she hopes he has not "ordered the killing of people and journalists" as Russian President Vladimir Putin has been accused of doing. Clinton’s appearance on "Charlie Rose" coincides with the recent release of her campaign book, What Happened. In the book, she called Trump a "creep" and described Russian involvement as a major reason why she unfairly lost the election. (Right...)

Weeks Before His Assassination, JFK Ordered Full Withdrawal from Vietnam

The idea that Kennedy would push for an end to the United States’ corrupt and troubled involvement in Vietnam is not surprising, considering his ongoing war with the Central Intelligence Agency. However, the fact that Kennedy was pushing for full withdrawal from Vietnam just weeks before he was assassinated, should be noted and remembered. Less than one year later, the Gulf of Tonkin incident served as the perfect false flag to send the U.S. into a war that killed over 58,000 Americans.

Not a Snowflake Day Care — Walter Williams on American colleges

Many colleges have become hotbeds of what might be labeled as enlightened racism. Students at the University of California, Berkeley created “safe spaces” for people of color. Resident advisers at Scripps College posted two signs to educate students about “emotional labor,” one aimed at white students and one for “people of color and marginalized backgrounds.” University of Michigan students demanded a “designated space on central campus for Black students and students of color to organize and do social justice work.” That was after the university caved to student demands and spent $10 million to build a multicultural center.

Donald Trump fought the NFL once before

This isn't the first time Trump has picked a fight with the NFL. And last time around, he lost spectacularly.

Trump's football adventure began in 1984, when he bought the New Jersey Generals, part of the then-new United States Football League. The USFL, -+- was envisioned by founder David Dixon as a complement to the National Football League that would play in the spring, leaving fall to the NFL. For its first three years, the strategy seemed successful.

But it wasn't enough for Trump. He pushed hard to shift the USFL to a fall schedule, where the USFL - with less talent and less public awareness - would go head-to-head with the bigger league.
***
But Trump's plan was typically audacious and risky. Rather than organically grow a new league, he hoped to force an immediate merger with the NFL, which would provide huge returns for surviving USFL team owners. That goal hinged in part on an antitrust lawsuit alleging the NFL was an unlawful monopoly.

But things didn't go Trump's way>>>

U.S. President Donald Trump Quietly Signs Law To Allow Warrantless Searches In Parts Of VA, DC and MD

As former White House chief of staff and current Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel has said: “You never let a serious crisis go to waste.” While everyone was worried about the hurricanes, U.S. President Donald Trump signed away the Fourth Amendment buried in a new bill. He set a precedent by empowering the police state to allow warrantless searches in parts of VA, MD and D.C. near the Metro train system. The government can now openly enter and search private property without a warrant in parts of Virginia, Maryland and D.C.

In New York, major crime complaints fell when cops took a break from ‘proactive policing’

When New York police officers temporarily reduced their “proactive policing” efforts on low-level offenses, major-crime reports in the city actually fell, according to a study based on New York Police Department crime statistics. The researchers also noted that proactive policing is often used disproportionately in communities with high poverty rates and large numbers of people of color.

FLASHBACK 2015 - Report: At least 50 teams were paid by Department of Defense for patriotic displays

A government oversight report released Wednesday by Sens. John McCain and Jeff Flake offers new details about how the Department of Defense paid professional sports teams and leagues for patriotic displays honoring American soldiers.

The report expands on one that became public last May and resulted in changes to the National Defense Authorization Act for 2016, prohibiting the expenditures and calling on leagues and teams to donate the money to organizations that support the military, veterans and their families.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Some corporate media outlets are trying to dismiss this story as a hoax.

The NFL: Big Business With Big Tax Breaks

If You Build It ...

Besides the tax exemption, the NFL can also get a break through big stadium deals. Take, for example, the Dallas Cowboys.

In the late 1990s, the Dallas Cowboys and the team's owner, Jerry Jones, began plans to expand their stadium or build a new one. Jones shopped in and around Dallas for years, asking for public assistance to fund the stadium.

He found an audience in Arlington, a city just outside of Dallas. The price tag for the public was $325 million. (Jones was responsible for the balance of the money for the $1.2 billion stadium. Dallas News says Jones' contribution "was paid with commercial loans, league funding and proceeds from a ticket and parking tax.")

Paid Patriotism: Six Ways The NFL Is Directly Connected To The Government

There's a reason why football is called America's pastime. Americans —if they watch the sport or not— are unconsciously paying for it. Controversy brought on by NFL star Colin Kaepernick taking a knee during the National Anthem last season, and subsequently looking for employment this season, has put the organization founded in 1920 under a microscope.

Non-Profit Status.
Believe it or not, the NFL is non-profit. The IRS expanded Section 501(c)6 of the Internal Revenue Code, which "provides for the exemption of business leagues, chambers of commerce, real estate boards, boards of trade and professional football leagues, which are not organization." As noted by The Washington Post, this exception means the NFL’s headquarters in New York led by Goodell is spared tax payments that some estimate to be $10 million annually— because the teams and not the NFL make money.

Sep 26 12:35

How the NFL Fleeces Taxpayers

Taxpayers fund the stadiums, antitrust law doesn't apply to broadcast deals, the league enjoys nonprofit status, and Commissioner Roger Goodell makes $30 million a year. It's time to stop the public giveaways to America's richest sports league—and to the feudal lords who own its teams.
Last year was a busy one for public giveaways to the National Football League. In Virginia, Republican Governor Bob McDonnell, who styles himself as a budget-slashing conservative crusader, took $4 million from taxpayers’ pockets and handed the money to the Washington Redskins, for the team to upgrade a workout facility. Hoping to avoid scrutiny, McDonnell approved the gift while the state legislature was out of session. The Redskins’ owner, Dan Snyder, has a net worth estimated by Forbes at $1 billion. But even billionaires like to receive expensive gifts.
And on and on........

Leaked Descriptions Of Infamous "Russia Ads" Derail Collusion Narrative "They Showed Support For Clinton"

Less than a week after Facebook agreed to turn over to Congressional investigators copies of the 3,000-odd political advertisements that the company said it had inadvertently sold to a Russia-linked group intent on meddling in the 2016 presidential election, the contents of the ads have – unsurprisingly – leaked, just as we had expected them to.

Congressional investigators shared the information with Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team, which has repeatedly allowed information about its investigation into whether members of the Trump campaign actively colluded with Russian operatives to leak to the press. Once this happened, we knew it was only a matter of time before the ads became part of the public record.

NFL TEAMS STAYED IN LOCKER ROOMS FOR ANTHEM UNTIL 2009—THEN DOD BEGAN ‘PAYING FOR PATRIOTISM’

What many people are missing in this debate is the fact that prior to 2009, NFL teams did not generally stand for the anthem. While having the option to do so individually if they chose to, most of the time they stayed in the locker room during this pregame ritual.

“NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy confirmed this morning the practice began in 2009, adding, ‘As you know, the NFL has a long tradition of patriotism. Players are encouraged but not required to stand for the anthem.’”

Additionally, it has come to light that many of the “patriotic” pregame displays in the NFL are simply propaganda displays that were paid for by the U.S. Department of Defense and the National Guard – meaning that these displays were actually paid for by the American taxpayers.

THE CDC’S STRANGE CASE OF POUL THORSEN, MD, PHD, VACCINE DATA MANIPULATOR “EXTRAORDINAIRE”

A few months ago after reading the book Master Manipulator, I wrote an article about Poul Thorsen, MD, PhD, the Danish medical researcher who produced the ‘premiere safety study’ that vaccines do not cause Autism; however, the study was produced fraudulently, but the CDC still promotes it and has not retracted it from vaccinology research, as science protocol requires.

One of the questionable studies involved is “A population-based study of measles, mumps, and rubella vaccination and autism” co-authored by Poul Thorsen, See comment in PubMed Commons below N Engl J Med. 2002 Nov 7;347(19):1477-82. It’s the study CDC particularly likes to point to regarding vaccines and Autism, and is published online here. The research was about ethylmercury in Thimerosal attributing to and/or causing Autism.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In an age where science can increasingly be "bought", to enhance a pharmaceutical company's bottom line, please be very careful when your prescribing physician suggests a brand new, just out of the box treatment or vaccine for whatever ails you.

Because I have personally been a victim of a pharmaceutical company's "buying" the allegiance of my former physician by paying them for "recommending" certain prescriptions for my joint pain (which never really worked as advertised), at 68, I have absolutely no difficulty in asking a prescribing physician if they are getting compensated, in any way, for prescribing a medication for me.

Trust should never be an absolute; trust has to be earned.

SPANISH SUPPRESSION OF CATALAN INDEPENDENCE MOVEMENT CONTINUES TO ESCALATE

Disobedient Media previously reported on the suppression of the Catalan independence movement in Spain. Since our first coverage of the issue, repressive tactics in Spain have continued to escalate. Disobedient Media’s report on the issue was also disingenuously smeared by Spanish media outlet El País. The press outlet also heavily criticized Edward Snowden and Julian Assange for having expressed concern on the matter.

That El País would perceive an independent news source like Disobedient Media as damaging enough to warrant such a response illustrates the deep insecurity the Catalan independence movement has stirred in Spain. El Paísdevoted a large, inaccurate chart to our coverage of the events:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Disgusting on the part of the Spanish media and government, but thoroughly predictable.

And by the way, does the incumbent Spanish President, Mariano Rajoy, want his country to remain in the UN?!?

And I say this, because he, at the moment, is having a "SMD" moment, (selelctive memory disorder moment) because he needs, and right the heck now ,to remember, that as a signatory to the UN, and an alleged advocate of its charter, the concept of "peaceful self-determination" is a value which is thoroughly enshrined in that charter.

SPYING BICYCLES LET POLICE KNOW WHO AND WHERE YOU ARE

Can you recall when your parents bought your first bicycle? Can you recall how thrilled you were when you didn’t need training wheels?

Those were great memories right?

Now imagine a future, where parents are forced to buy a bicycle that uploads all your kids data to a NASA spy satellite that knows exactly where they are are at all times.

This can’t be real, I’m joking right?

Sadly, this is no joke.

Tomes Software, is working with the Ford motor company to develop a device that will alert vehicles that a cyclist is close to you and vice-versa. The company claims, their device will cut down on bicycle, vehicle collisions.

A recent article in the Detroit Free Press reveals, that Tomes Software is working with Ford, Trek and NASA to develop bicycles that collect and transmit all kinds of personal data. (Click here to learn more about NASA spy satellites.)

Webmaster's Commentary:

In our case, Mike and I are going to buy a car from the 50s, and adopt a Cuban mechanic!! :-)

'ISRAELI FLAGS WON’T SAVE YOU': ERDOGAN THREATENS IRAQI KURDS WITH FAMINE OVER REFERENDUM

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has warned that Iraqi Kurds will “not be able to find food” if Ankara decides to halt the flow of trucks and oil into the region, adding that all military and economic sanctions are on the table.

“[They] will be left in the lurch when we start imposing our sanctions,” Erdogan said in a speech broadcast live on television on Tuesday, as quoted by Reuters.

“It will be over when we close the oil taps, all [their] revenues will vanish, and they will not be able to find food when our trucks stop going to northern Iraq.”

Erdogan also warned that “flying Israeli flags” would not save the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) from regional isolation.

“If the only support for the KRG’s referendum is given by Israel and if the [outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party] PKK starts celebrating [the results] even before the polls close then there can be neither innocence nor legitimacy,” Erdo?an said, as quoted by Hurriyet.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF the response to the referendum was positive (and we still don't know precisely how the vote went, because results have yet to be revealed) I am very concerned about massive further violence as a result in this part of Iraq.

The Kurds have been formidable US allies in terms of stomping on ISIS in Syria; but even if the US has stopped short of endorsing this referendum, where does this referendum put the US position vis a vis Turkey, Iraq, and a (soon) nearly created Kurdish state, rich with oil?!?

And don't the Kurdish people believe that such service to the US should have translated into their having their own country?!?

The US government has placed itself, Iraq, and Turkey, into a very sticky wicket, as our British cousins would say, by supporting the Kurds in fighting ISIS in Syria, but not supporting a potentially soon-coming independent Kurdistan, simultaneously potentially carving bits out of Iraq to create this new nation.

What were those in the bowels of the Occupied, Unhinged, Surveilled States of America thinking?!?!? The bottom line is here, they just weren't.

Apparently, not being able to think a scenario through to its logical conclusiion, has to be a prerequisite for working for the Federal government these days.

Journalist Travels To North Korea, Brings Back Photos Very Different From MSM

By Brandon Turbeville

As the United States continues to drum up support for possible military intervention in North Korea, the propaganda attacks launched against the isolated Asian nation by the mainstream corporate press have intensified as well. Ranging from the semi-legitimate to the ridiculously absurd, the corporate media has launched a campaign of insults balanced only by its “resistance movement” to Donald Trump. In this case, however, Trump has the rare backing of the corporate press if only in the by the fact that the media is cheering for war harder and faster than Trump is perhaps willing to give it to them.

The corporate press has presented the entirety of North Korea as a state in which no independent thought is allowed, starvation is rampant, haircuts are mandated, and the population of the country is essentially kept in a massive prison camp with messages of brainwashing piped in to every home.

Monsanto Caught Ghostwriting Stanford University Hoover Institution Fellow’s Published Work

Newly-released documents, dubbed the Monsanto Papers, give the public a behind the scenes look into how far Monsanto will go to control public perception, news media and scientific research into the key ingredient in its Roundup product, glyphosate.

The documents, which include internal emails and memos, reveals among other things, how Henry I. Miller, a Robert Wesson Fellow in Scientific Philosophy and Public Policy at the Hoover Institution at Stanford University, allowed Monsanto to ghostwrite an editorial he published in Forbes.com and claimed as his own in 2015.

The 2015 editorial attacked the decision by the International Agency for Research on Cancer, a branch of the World Health Organization, to classify glyphosate as a probable carcinogen.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Monsanto, in the 21st century,has become the personification of utterly despicable corporate evil.

Conservatives have a blind spot for the police for reasons that are mystifying. Conservatives, after all, are hugely distrustful of government authority. Someone from the IRS or the EPA bosses citizens around and deprives them of their property and conservatives freak out.

But call that agent of the government a cop, give him a gun, the authority to kill, and a public sector union devoted to ensuring he faces zero accountability? Suddenly only racial agitators and liberal namby-pambies question his actions.

Steelers' Alejandro Villanueva on standing for anthem: 'I made my teammates look bad'

It was a mistake he says. Looks like Villanueva just woosed out.

Alejandro Villanueva, a former Army Ranger and the only Pittsburgh Steeler seen standing during the national anthem on Sunday against the Chicago Bears, told reporters he “unintentionally” threw his teammates under the bus.

In a news conference on Monday, Villanueva said it was never part of the plan to be out on the field alone and that he accidentally ran too far, according to CBS Pittsburgh.

How to end the North Korea problem

Here’s how to solve the seven-decade old crisis: pull all U.S. troops out of North Korea; end all military exercises on the North Korean border; encourage direct talks between the North and South and offer to host or observe them with an international delegation including the Russians and Chinese, which are after all Korea’s neighbors. The schoolyard insults back and forth between Donald Trump and Kim Jong-Un are not funny. They are in fact an insult to all of the rest of us!

MSM: Trump and the National Anthem are both relics of white supremacy

So perhaps the most important conversation the nation ought to have isn’t about whether the nation has a racist past (it does), but about how we can reverse a bloody present and future for the disadvantaged people living in its poorest (and most heavily Democrat controlled) neighborhoods. None of those 508 dead people in Chicago would have been saved if the nation scrapped the National Anthem altogether. Though, some of them may have been saved if we’d scrapped the predatory political machines running their neighborhoods into the ground for so long.

Netherlands Cover-up? A New Twist in the MH17 Investigation

This week a development has surfaced, one which exposes the malfeasance of the western-led international investigation. It seems that Russia has handed Dutch investigators important evidence of primary radar data which covers the flight zone at the exact time of the incident. Incredibly, the Dutch have decided to it file away and out of sight, not to be included in their final investigation. The reason for this is because this Russian data demonstrates that an anti-aircraft battery fired from inside Ukrainian army-held territory in eastern Ukraine. A inconvenient truth?

This is only the beginning. Expect more cover-ups and misdirection from western authorities – who are keen to obscure any new evidence which threatens their predetermined narrative on the downing of MH17…

The US' foreign policy may lead to a nuclear nightmare in Asia Pacific, compared to which the Fukushima disaster is a "firecracker," an expert told Sputnik, adding that in his UN speech Donald Trump had repeatedly contradicted himself by calling upon nations to maintain their sovereignty while at the same time threatening to destroy North Korea.

US President Donald Trump's threat to "totally destroy" North Korea in case the US is "forced to defend itself or its allies" means a potential atomic Armageddon for the Korean Peninsula, Konstantin Sivkov, a Russian military analyst and president of the Academy for Geopolitical Problems, told Sputnik China.

NATO's Dragon-17 Drills: 'Dangerous Dreamers Dreaming of Real War With Russia'

Some 17,500 troops and 3,500 vehicles kicked off five days of drilling in Poland on Monday, the exercise coming on the heels of the Russian-Belarusian Zapad-2017 drills, which Polish officials and media described as preparations for an invasion of Europe. Speaking to Sputnik, political analyst Konrad Rekas said the hypocrisy was delicious.
The NATO drills, whose active phase runs until Friday, involve troops from Poland and NATO allies the US, Lithuania, Latvia, the UK, Germany, Slovakia, Italy, Bulgaria, Romania, as well as NATO hopefuls Georgia and Ukraine. Ahead of the exercises, Polish Defense Minister Antoni Macierewicz said the drills would carry a "very aggressive" character, and involve 122,000 troops, rather than the aforementioned 17,500.

After the ISIS Caliphate, Rojava

While the Syrian Arab Army, the Russian aviation and Hezbollah are preparing to finish off Daesh, the Pentagon is planning a new war against Syria, this time with Kurdish troops. Just as the mission of the Caliphate was to create a Sunnistan straddling Iraq and Syria, so the mission of “Rojava” is to create a Kurdistan straddling the two states, as the Pentagon has been publicly stating for the last four years.

According to US grand strategy, as defined by Admiral Cebrowski in 2001, and published in 2004 by his assistant Thomas Barnett, all of the Greater Middle East must be destroyed except for Israël, Jordan and Lebanon.

Consequently, the imminent victory against Daesh will change nothing of the Pentagon’s intentions.

Donald Trump has composed his administration of ex-senior civil servants from the Obama administration, a number of opportunistic politicians, many improvised representatives, and very very few trustworthy personalities.

Trump at War with Dissent

Trump continues finding ways to disgrace himself, the latest episode Friday evening, criticizing legitimate dissent.

It’s the highest form of patriotism, the comment attributed to Thomas Jefferson, whether or not he actually said it.

In 1961, The Use of Force in International Affairs publication used the phrase, asking

“(i)f what your country is doing seems to you practically and morally wrong, is dissent the highest form of patriotism?”

During the height of the Vietnam war in 1969, New York Mayor John Lindsey said

“(w)e cannot rest content with the charge from Washington that…peaceful protest(s) (are) unpatriotic…The fact is that this dissent is the highest form of patriotism.”

The late Howard Zinn and other distinguished figures said the same thing in similar or identical language.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As a Christian pacivist activist, I dissent from the OUSSA's official narrative, engineered to continue to legitimize the wars it fights; to continue the outsourcing of American jobs; and continue its general attitude of bullying, both at home and around the world.

I do it peacefully, never advocate violence, and always do my best to speak the truth.

While I would probably not kneel during the playing of the national anthem (at 68, I'd probably need a tractor to pull me up to vertical again!), I sincerely believe that individual professional athletes do have the right to dissent peacefully in this manner.

President Trump should not have invested at all in this argument, as he has bigger fish to fry, both domestically, and internationally right now; this is a major distraction from the real issues he is confronting.

In fact, it almost reminds me of the "missing Chandra Levey" case, featuring Congressman Gary Condit as the alleged bad guy, in the summer of 2001, right before 9/11.

So I have to wonder; from just what, please, is the OUSSA trying to distract us at this moment?!?

New Research Links Flint Water Crisis to ‘Horrifyingly Large’ Spike in Fetal Death Rates

Shedding new light on the human costs of the ongoing Flint water crisis—as well as underscoring the need for regulatory oversight—a new working paper links the city’s now infamous switch from the Detroit system to the Flint River as a water source with a decrease in fertility rates and a spike in fetal death rates.

The paper (pdf) from researchers from the University of Kansas and West Virginia University is the first to look at lead-poisoned water’s impact on fertility and birth outcomes. It compares birth and fetal death rates, which refers to miscarriages after 20 weeks of gestation, in Flint with those in other Michigan cities from 2008 to 2015—before and after the 2014 water switch.

Following the change in the water source, women in Flint aged 15-49 had a general fertility rate (GFR) decease of 12 percent. Fetal death rates for the group increased by 58 percent—a magnitude the researchers describe as “horrifyingly large.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Every single city, county, and state official who signed off on this switch in water resources, should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law, tried, and convicted , and thrown into jail.

People should not be allowed to do this to any community in this country, period, end of discussion!!!!

US Provides Military Assistance to 73 Percent of World's Dictatorships

Today, of course, we are told that we should support insurgents in Syria because Bashar al-Assad is an evil dictator, and we must repeatedly rattle our sabers at North Korea's Kim Jong-un and Russia's Vladimir Putin because they, too, are evil dictators.

This is part of the larger, usually unquestioned mainstream corporate media narrative that the US leads the "Western democracies" in a global struggle to combat terrorism and totalitarianism and promote democracy.

I set out to answer a simple question: Is it true? Does the US government actually oppose dictatorships and champion democracy around the world, as we are repeatedly told?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Not only is the Occupied Unhinged Surveilled States of America supporting the world's dictators; they are also committing war crimes, for example, with the OUSSA aiding and abetting Saudi genocide in Yemen.

I don't know about the rest of you; however, I am very morally uncomfortable being a citizen of a country which routinely indulges in war crimes with impunity, because the OUSSA can get away with these kinds of actions.

I would love for Mike and I to become citizens of a country which does not participate in these immoral and unethincal acts; somewhere picturesque, perhaps, like the Municipality of Andorra; unfortunately we are both too broke, and too old, to make this happen.

What the Kurdish Referendum Means for the Future of Iraq

The referendum on independence for the Kurdish controlled territory, due to take place on 25 September, is the latest event billed as threatening the stability of Iraq and a good chunk of the Middle East. Seldom has a democratic poll in such a small place been so universally denounced by so many international powers, including the US, UK, Germany and France.

A White House statement emphasises “to the leaders of the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) that the referendum is distracting from efforts to defeat Isis and stabilise the liberated areas. Holding the referendum in disputed areas is particularly provocative and destabilising.”

Regional powers like Turkey and Iran have likewise demanded that the referendum be cancelled and threatened retaliation if it is not. In Baghdad, the Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi has denounced it and the Supreme Court ruled that it was “unconstitutional”. But for all the sound and fury, it looks as if the vote is going ahead.

Death of Russian general in Syria is result of US hypocrisy – Moscow

The death of Russian Lieutenant-General Valery Asapov in Syria is the price Russia was forced to pay for hypocritical US policy, according to Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov.

“The death of the Russian commander is the price paid with blood for the hypocrisy of American policy in Syria," Ryabkov said on Monday.

General Asapov was serving as one of Russia’s military advisers in Syria. On Sunday, the Russian Defense Ministry said he was fatally wounded by an exploding shell in a sudden mortar attack by IS terrorists.

The deputy minister said Moscow wants Washington’s statements on fighting terrorism not to be at odds with its actions on the ground.

Meanwhile, the Russian and US militaries maintain “intensive” contacts at different levels, Ryabkov said.

On Sunday, the Russian Ministry of Defense published aerial images which they say show US Army special forces equipment located north of the Syrian town of Deir ez-Zor, where IS militants are deployed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am sensing that, in spite of all the intensive contacts between Russian and US military reps, those in the Bowels of Power in the Occupied, Unhinged, Surveilled States of Amerika may well find an "excuse" for engaging with the Russians directly in Syria, in order not to appear to be losing yet another military misadventure in the Middle East.

I hope to heck I am absolutely wrong on this; but looking at the messes the US has made of Afghanistan; Somalia; Iraq; and Libya, one can understand why the US government doesn't want the optics of the US attempt at "regime change" in Damascus to appear as another epic fail to the world.

Trump Accuses Iran of Cooperation with North Korea After Missile Test Launch

US President Donald Trump said on Sunday that Iran was cooperating with Pyongyang following the latest Tehran's ballistic missile test.

"Iran just test-fired a Ballistic Missile capable of reaching Israel. They are also working with North Korea. Not much of an agreement we have!" Trump posted on Twitter.

On Saturday, Iranian media reported that the country had successfully carried out the test launch of a new ballistic missile, dubbed Khorramshahr, with a range of 2,000 kilometers (1,242 miles).

The new Iranian long range missile Khoramshahr (front) is displayed during the annual military parade marking the anniversary of the outbreak of its devastating 1980-1988 war with Saddam Hussein's Iraq, on September 22,2017 in

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mr. President, please think for a moment; if you were Iran's President Rouhani, and listening to American, Israeli, and Saudi authorities all screaming in unison about regime change in Tehran, would you not be wanting to be creating, and manufacturing, the best, and longest-range missiles your scientists could create?!?

Of course you would!!

And sir, where is your proof that North Korea is assisting Iran in its missile program?!? Wouldn't the situation actually be the converse, with Iran assisting North Korea, because North Korea's guidance and staging of their missiles needs much to be desired before they can actually target something successfully?!?

And please remember: As of October 17th, 2014, irandaily.com carried the following comment:

Iran argues that it has rejected nuclear weapons as incompatible with Islam and cites a fatwa of Leader Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei as proof. American and European officials remain skeptical, however, that the issue is really governed by Shia Islamic principles. They have relied instead on murky intelligence that has never been confirmed about an alleged covert Iranian nuclear weapons program.

But the key to understanding Iran's policy toward nuclear weapons lies in a historical episode during its eight-year war with Iraq. The story, told in full for the first time here, explains why Iran never retaliated against Iraq's chemical weapons attacks on Iranian troops and civilians, which killed 20,000 Iranians and severely injured 100,000 more. And it strongly suggests that the Iranian leadership's aversion to developing chemical and nuclear weapons is deep-rooted and sincere.

How Obama is funding the anti-Trump resistance

Wall Street might be shocked to learn it is helping bankroll the anti-Trump “resistance” movement that’s aggressively fighting policies it favors — including corporate tax cuts and the repeal of Obama-era banking and health-care regulations.

The Obama administration’s massive shakedown of Big Banks over the mortgage crisis included unprecedented back-door funding for dozens of Democratic activist groups who were not even victims of the crisis.

At least three liberal nonprofit organizations the Justice Department approved to receive funds from multibillion-dollar mortgage settlements were instrumental in killing the ObamaCare repeal bill and are now lobbying against GOP tax reform, as well as efforts to rein in illegal immigration.

POLICE HAVE KILLED MORE THAN 1,000 PEOPLE WITH TASERS SINCE 2000

Almost all 18,000 police departments across the U.S. issue officers tasers, or stun guns, which are meant to be a non-lethal weapon to help police subdue suspects. But tasers have proved controversial partly because, when misused, they can result in death. In a five-part series of original reporting, digging through court documents, police reports and public records, “Reuters” has documented more than 1,000 incidents since the year 2000 when people died after police fired tasers at them.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Tasers have never truly been "less than lethal" weapons:

Tasers can stop the heart and kill

People Ignore Facts That Contradict Their False Beliefs

No matter how irrefutable the evidence is, most people reject anything which contradicts their deeply entrenched false beliefs, and this reader-comment crystallized for me, this phenomenon of “confirmation bias” — the phenomenon of ignoring evidence that contradicts what one believes.

Pentagon Greenlights $700 Million Program To Combat Commercial ISIS Drones

The Pentagon is throwing $700 million at a rapidly progressing program to combat the threat of commercial drone use by the Islamic State, The New York Times reports.

The program has commissioned U.S. defense contractors to begin attempting to find solutions to the drone threat, including using lasers to shoot them out of the sky. The technology is in its infancy and has yet to yield any significant results. ISIS has pioneered the use of relatively cheap commercial drones as airborne improvised explosive devices, for surveillance, and propaganda purposes.

The Pentagon program comes as it increases the number of U.S. troops in Syria to assist training for the Syrian Democratic Forces in the fight against ISIS. The Pentagon reportedly worries that its bases could be vulnerable to ISIS drone attacks, and it sees the broader trend in warfare.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I frankly don't think that it is only commercial drone use by Isis the Pentagon is attempting to counter; please note that, to date, the US military has been unable to shoot any Korean test missiles out of the sky.

TURKEY AND IRAN CONDUCT MASSIVE MILITARY DRILLS NEAR KURDISH REGIONS OF IRAQ

Today, Iraqi Kurds will vote in a long awaited and widely condemned separatism referendum that is being boycotting by Arabs and Turkomen.

The referendum which has been condemned by all regional powers except for Israel as well as condemned by the UN, US, China and Russia, has already caused both Iran and Turkey to effectively shut down Iraqi airspace for all commercial flights over the region.

Today, both Iran and Turkey have been conducting large scale live-fire military drills in their respective regions bordering parts of Iraq unilaterally claimed by Kurds.

The no-fly zone over the area which will be policed by Iran and Turkey has been coordinated with the Iraqi government.

According to Keyvan Khosravi, the press secretary of Iran’s supreme national security conucil

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If in fact Kurds vote for independence, this may well create yet another civil war in sections of Iraq and Syria.

But one has to wonder; where is the US government in all this?!? Although the Kurds have been the most steadfast, valiant proxy against the jihadists in Syria, and there was an unspoken understanding that the US would support an independent Kurdish state after the defeat of Isis, that support doesn't seem to be at all forthcoming. As reported at israelrising.com last week:

“The United States does not support the Kurdistan Regional Government’s intention to hold a referendum later this month,” White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Friday. “The United States has repeatedly emphasized to the leaders of the Kurdistan Regional Government that the referendum is distracting from efforts to defeat [the Islamic State] and stabilize the liberated areas.” Of course, the United States should not be surprised by the drive by the Kurds for an independent state. The Kurds have for centuries pushed for their own sovereign country without success. Now, with the Kurdish Regional Government showing that they are by far the most stable entity in Iraq and have been the biggest reason behind the coalition’s success against ISIS, the drive for independence has been expected. “We know, by the way, that the State Department and possibly the [Defense Department] are personally contacting members of Congress, senators, representatives, asking them not to support the referendum,” Bayan Sami Abdul Rahman, told POLITICO in a recent interview. “We’re very serious about independence. It’s kind of disheartening that for two to three years we talked about a referendum and the U.S. said that it was surprised.” The US is challenged by the possibility of an independent Kurdistan, because supporting its independence, would essentially collapse the post World War 2 security structure in the Middle East. An independent Kurdistan in Northern Iraq may only constitute a minority of the total Kurdish population and their homeland in the Middle East, but by the US supporting it, would cause Turkey to disconnect from the West and Iraq to officially declare allegiance to Iran.

The CDC’s Strange Case of Poul Thorsen, MD, PhD, Vaccine Data Manipulator “Extraordinaire”

By Catherine J. Frompovich

A few months ago after reading the book Master Manipulator, I wrote an article about Poul Thorsen, MD, PhD, the Danish medical researcher who produced the ‘premiere safety study’ that vaccines do not cause Autism; however, the study was produced fraudulently, but the CDC still promotes it and has not retracted it from vaccinology research, as science protocol requires.

One of the questionable studies involved is “A population-based study of measles, mumps, and rubella vaccination and autism” co-authored by Poul Thorsen, See comment in PubMed Commons below N Engl J Med. 2002 Nov 7;347(19):1477-82. It’s the study CDC particularly likes to point to regarding vaccines and Autism, and is published online here. The research was about ethylmercury in Thimerosal attributing to and/or causing Autism...

Is the Anti-American NFL Self Destructing?

The first amendment does not make anyone immune from the consequences of their actions when their speech is repulsive to the people or if the President disagrees. It is just words he said, if he had them arrested for their speech or sent troops to bully the players to stand for the national anthem against their will. Then I would oppose the President if he did that. The POTUS did not infringe on the player’s right to free speech. He was just showing his passion opposing what the players were doing,
