Is the U.S. Government Evil? You Tell Me

This is a government that treats its citizens like faceless statistics and economic units to be bought, sold, bartered, traded, tracked, tortured, and eventually eliminated once they’ve outgrown their usefulness. -- This is a government that treats human beings like lab rats to be caged, branded, experimented upon, and then discarded and left to suffer from the after-effects. -- This is a government that repeatedly lies, cheats, steals, spies, kills, maims, enslaves, breaks the laws, overreaches its authority, and abuses its power at almost every turn. --This is a government that wages wars for profit, jails its own people for profit, and then turns a blind eye and a deaf ear while its henchmen rape and kill and pillage. -- No, this is not a government that can be trusted to do what is right or moral or humane or honorable but instead seems to gravitate towards corruption, malevolence, misconduct, greed, cruelty, brutality and injustice.

Research Shows Google’s Search Manipulations Tried To Rig Election For Hillary

This is not a coincidence, especially when considering Google was the Clinton campaign’s largest corporate contributor. Google employees, including at least six high-ranking executives, donated more than $1.3 million to Clinton’s 2016 campaign. Call it censorship or manipulation, but the truth is…Google attempted to rig the election for Hillary Clinton by manipulating searches and suggestions, and therefore, voters minds.

U.S. Citizens Fund UN Arms Trade Treaty Which Impacts U.S. Gun Ownership

Recently, I received an email from U.S. Senator Rand Paul regarding an issue which may upset, or be near and dear to, the hearts of many Americans; it stated the USA taxpayer is the second largest DIRECT financial funder of the U.N.’s global gun ban! Did you know that? Of course, most people probably don’t, and such information is one of the reasons I’ve been saying for umpteen years, “Get the USA out of the UN; get the UN out of the USA.”

CDC Buried Data Supporting Defensive Use Of Firearms

It matters because first, it removes one more “talking point” used by anti-gunners to defend their intention to remove firearms from every law-abiding gun owner in the country. Second, it confirms that government agencies cannot be trusted without verification. Third, it is one more argument in the arsenal of those promoting private gun ownership to those who haven’t yet made up their minds.

A Furtive Glance At Washington's Ongoing War Preparations Against Russia

While the world's attention is riveted on Syria, the US is significantly boosting its forces in Europe. And these are not just divisions streaming in to take part in some exercises that will leave once those are over. This is a serious buildup to create a potentially offensive posture. The beefing up of the US forces is taking place amid preparations for a Russia-US summit. That’s a rather peculiar background for the event, to put it mildly!

Armenia Heats Up As The Proxy War Continues

Armenia is an important part Russia’s long-term plans. A member of the Eurasian Economic Union Armenia is key to protecting Russia’s southern flank.

So, I was not shocked back in 2016 when the disputed region of Nagorno-Karabakh was activated by the U.S. after a brief visit by then Secretary of State John Kerry as punishment for Russia’s intervention into Syria.

Nagorno-Karabakh had been peaceful for more than twenty years before Kerry’s visit. And within days, fighting broke out on the Azeri side of the region which lies between the two countries.

So, color me not shocked that as the Neoconservatives take control of the Trump White House that they activate a color revolution in Armenia while simultaneously pushing Russia in Ukraine, Syria, the U.K., the financial markets and seemingly everywhere else at the same time.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The flash points for several potential hot wars are tinder for the kerosine being thrown on them, courtesy of the US and the West.

Taiwan To Simulate Chinese Invasion In Live-Fire Military Drill Starting Next Week

As concerns about nuclear war with North Korea wane, Taiwan is reminding the world that its own relations with Beijing have been progressively deteriorating; to do that the small island nation will simulate a response to an "invading force", along with using civilian operated drones, in war games next week amid its increasing tensions with China the defense ministry said Tuesday according to Reuters.

While the annual Han Kuang drills, set to begin on April 30 with a computer-aided command post exercise, make no mention of China, only “offensive forces invading Taiwan” and will include a live-fire field training exercise and “enemy elimination on beaches”, it is clear that the "hypothetical" aggressor is China.

UK Sells $445 Million of Arms to Israel, Including Sniper Rifles

Britain has approved the sale of arms to Israel worth $445m since the 2014 Gaza war, including components for drones, combat aircraft and helicopters along with spare parts for sniper rifles, according to figures seen by Middle East Eye.

The government data will raise fresh concerns that British-made weapons are being used by the Israeli military in the Occupied Territories, amid fears that components in sniper rifles used to kill scores of Palestinian civilians in recent weeks could have been made in the UK.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Gee, ya think that was going to happen?!?

Theresa May has the morals of a dead tree-stump; MI5 and MI 6 know precisely that UK's weaponry is being used to assassinate Palestinians; but as long as the money is getting raked in by the UK's military /Industrial Complex, the British government chooses to remain collectively deaf and blind to the carnage these weaons are causing.

Turkey’s Military Offensive in Afrin

In late January, Turkey launched a ground incursion named Operation Olive Branch in the Afrin canton of northern Syria. The offensive is directed against the Kurdish-led Democratic Union Party in Syria (PYD), particularly its armed wing named People’s Protection Units (YPG), which Ankara considers as a terrorist group since 1985 and the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) positions surrounding the city of Afrin. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan stated that the aim of the operation was to give Afrin back to its rightful owners, a statement that has since been used by Kurdish group to claim that he intends to engineer a demographic shift. However, by March, Turkish troops took control of Syria’s Afrin region, deploying “police force” to oversee 115 “strategic forces” and more than 80 villages under its control, the state-run Anadolu news agency reported.

Where Is the Shame? Why is the World Silent? Acceptance of the West’s War Crimes is the “New Normal”

Will the Russian president and foreign minister continue to speak of “our Western partners” and seek common ground with proven lawless war criminals? What would that common ground be?

How can other governments accept the US, UK, and French governments that intentionally lied about a Russian chemical attack on the Skripals and about a Syrian chemical attack on Douma, risking a third world war, and then themselves attacking Syria on the basis of a transparent lie unsupported by any evidence? How exactly do you conduct diplomatic relations with war criminals?

You don’t. You put them on trial. Why aren’t Trump, May, and Macron on trial?

The reason is that the world has been conditioned, like Pavlov’s dogs, to expect and accept the West’s war crimes as ordinary common features of life. The West’s crimes are protected by precedents established by decades of failing to hold the West accountable. The West has squatters rights in committing unaccountable war crimes.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is only a matter of time before the US will find itself in a military confrontation with Russia; that is being engineered by those in the US Deep State as I type this.

In Photos: While the world watches Gaza, Israeli forces invade Nabi Saleh

What’s happening now is what is happening every week, sometimes everyday, since nearly nine years”, explains Belal Tamimi, a resident of the West Bank village of Nabi Saleh. “Every Friday, we have this situation, the soldiers try to surround the village, they don’t want anyone to be near the spring area that the settlers occupied nine years ago. Every Friday, the situation is horrible”, says Belal, who has taken the role of documenting the protests and the constant raids by the Israeli army.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The "Final Solution" wanted by Tel Aviv against the Palestinians, is complete extermination and anihillation of all Palestinians, as is witnessed by these invasions and occupations.

Israelis Continue to Open Fire on Gaza Protestors: An Eyewitness Account

According to the Palestinian Centre for Human Rights (PCHR), the Palestinian death toll since March 30, 2018 “has risen to 33, including 4 children and 1 photojournalist, and the number of those wounded has risen to 2,436, including 410 children, 66 women, 22 journalists and 9 paramedics.”

There have been no Israeli casualties.

According to PCHR, on Friday, April 20th, Israeli snipers “killed 4 Palestinian civilians, including a child, and wounded 274 others, including 41 children, 6 women and 1 journalist, in addition to hundreds suffering tear gas inhalation, including PCHR’s fieldworkers who were documenting the Israeli forces’ suppression of the entirely peaceful demonstrations near the border fence with Israel, east of the Gaza Strip.”

Man who sued Ed Murray, alleging sex abuse, died from accidental overdose

The man who last year sued Seattle Mayor Ed Murray for alleged sexual abuse — prompting publicity of similar allegations that eventually led to Murray’s resignation — died due to an accidental overdose of illegal and prescription drugs, the King County Medical Examiner’s Office reported Monday.

Delvonn Heckard died from “acute combined cocaine, opiate (heroin), Alprazolam and Diazepam intoxication,” an investigator with the office said Monday. His death was officially ruled an accident.

Israeli government justifies killing child protesters in Gaza: They’re not in school

Mohammed Ayoub was the last to be killed: last Friday at 4:30 PM.

Israeli education minister Naftali Bennett was asked on Sunday if Israel had not gone too far when it killed Ayoub, as Orly Noy reports at +972:

Army Radio morning show host Razi Barkai asked Education Minister Naftali Bennett if “we had gone too far” in killing 15-year-old Mohammed Ayoub during the Gaza return march protests last Friday.

“If he had gone to school like every other kid,” Bennett responded, “there wouldn’t have been a problem.” That is what Israel’s education minister had to say about the murder of a child – killed by a sniper’s bullet – during a protest.

This is now a theme of Israeli propaganda surrounding the killings in Gaza: the children are to blame for not being in school, or not reading books.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In Israel, where genocide against Palestinian children is considered business as usual, there appears to be a real disconnect between what the snipers are doing, and their killing of children with bullets, when all the Palestinian kids have are rocks to throw.

But then, what can one reasonably expect from a viciously apartheid, self-proclaimed theocracy with nuclear weapons?!?

Russia said to warn of ‘catastrophic’ result if Israel hits its S-300s in Syria

Russia may hand over its powerful S-300 missile defense system to Syria in the near future, despite opposition from Israel and other Western powers, the Russian daily Kommersant reported Monday, citing anonymous military sources.

The sources told the newspaper that if Israel tried to destroy the anti-aircraft batteries — as analysts have indicated Israel likely would — it would be “catastrophic for all sides.”

But Russian Foreign Minister later said no decision had yet been made on whether to give the S-300s to Syria, and added that it would not keep such a delivery a secret.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

My sense is that Putin will make the decision, and soon, to send the S-300 Defensive Missle System to Syria, and soon; if Israel's government decides to send missiles against it, Russia has told it precisely what will happen.

House Lawmakers Close Pentagon Budget Hearing to the Public

Mattis and Dunford have open hearings at the Armed Services Committees, but will talk over their $686.1 billion request with House appropriators in private.

For the first time in at least eight years, House appropriators will grill the Pentagon’s top civilian and uniformed leader about their budget request behind closed doors, not in an open hearing.

Defense Secretary Jim Mattis and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Joe Dunford will sit before the defense subcommittee on Wednesday to talk over the military’s $686.1 billion request for 2019. It’s not the largest defense budget ever, but the $80 billion bump over legislated spending caps and the bipartisan budget deal that delivered that figure both represent a massive victory for Pentagon leaders and Congressional defense hawks.

Where those dollars will go, however, will be discussed in a session closed to the public.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, We the People, are too stupid to be informed about where these defense dollars are going?!?

Folks, if this intel is true, the Unhinged, Surveilled States of Amerika has bounced out of being a Democratic Republic, and slid right straight down, in the mud, into a Banana Republic!!

Trump’s CIA pick facing brutal confirmation fight

The Senate’s debate over Gina Haspel’s confirmation as CIA director is poised to be a bitter litigation of one of the most controversial episodes in recent U.S. history.

Haspel, the CIA’s deputy director, is indelibly tied to the agency’s use of harsh interrogation techniques after the Sept. 11 attacks. But she is also a 33-year intelligence veteran who is seen even by some critics of President Trump as an experienced and apolitical hand.

Hinting at the challenge ahead, the CIA is engaged in an extraordinarily public campaign to burnish Haspel’s image and correct what it says is a swath of inaccurate reporting about a career intelligence officer who, up until a year ago, was virtually anonymous.

There are few obvious parallels to Haspel’s nomination. Although there have been a handful of CIA nominees with operational experience at the agency before now, many of them had been in the public arena prior to their nomination. Haspel remained undercover until last year.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Haspel is the last person in this country who should have been nominated for this position; this signals to me that the acceptance of torture, courtesy of the CIA, will be back as a brutal element of the Unhinged, Surveilled State of America's further wars without end.

Trump Threatens Iran as Deadline to Withdraw From Nuclear Deal Looms: Iran FM: US already violating the nuclear deal

Speaking on Tuesday, President Trump again threatened to withdraw from the P5+1 nuclear deal with Iran. Trump previously set an ultimatum of May 12 for withdrawing if the deal isn’t changed substantially. Trump also threatened to make Iran “pay a price like few countries have ever paid.”

The May 12 deadline is when President Trump would have to extend sanctions relief from the deal. Without that, the US would effectively be withdrawing. Iranian officials have made clear if that happens, they’ll resume uranium enrichment they’d stopped under the pact.

The three EU parties to the deal have been trying to come up with a sideline agreement with the US to prevent all this. So far, President Trump appears unwilling to budge. French President Emmanuel Macron appeared to join Trump in opposing the deal’s continuation, backing a joint statement from the two calling the current deal “insane.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The folks at the IAEA, who are inspecting Iran's sites, and tell the world that they are totally in compliance with the deal, are not idiots; they are very bright, accomplished people, and when they tell me that Iran is in compliance, my tendency, as someone who appreciates science, is to believe them.

Unfortunately, however, Israel wants Syria; Iran; and Lebanon regime changed, but ony wants the costs of these military campaigns to be borne in American blood and American money.

And whatever President Trump believes Israeli Prime Minister wants, he will give that to him, delivered on a silver platter if possible, no matter the costs to We the People.

Trump Again Backtracks on Syria Pullout, Vows ‘Strong and Lasting Footprint’

Just a month after another brief public flirtation with the idea of withdrawing from Syria, President Trump once again said he wants US troops out of Syria, promising “big decisions” very soon. His first talk of a pullout was scrapped days later. This time, he backtracked almost instantly.

With French President Emmanuel Macron in tow, Trump told reporters that he and his allies are taking a long-term approach to Syria, and that this would involve leaving “a strong and lasting footprint” within Syria. He said talk of the long-term issues in Syria was “a very big part” of his discussions with Macron.

The idea that Macron is driving Trump’s decision-making was a big issue last week. Macron claimed credit for Trump agreeing to stay in Syria, but quickly reversed course, and insisted the two had always agreed on the issue.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

My sense is that the US involvement with Syria is not over by a long shot; and there is a grave concern that the US will wind up making a "military miscalculation", and involving Russia in a shooting war here.

Yemen vows ‘crushing response’ to top Houthi official murder

Yemen’s Defense Ministry has vowed a “crushing response” to the assassination of a senior official from the Houthi Ansarullah movement, saying Saudi Arabia and the US will regret their “criminal adventurism.”

In a statement carried by the official Saba news agency on Monday, the ministry stressed that the Yemeni armed forces reserve the right to deal severe blows to “the aggressors and their evil coalition,” who will not be safe from ballistic missiles.

Saleh al-Samad, the chairman of Yemen’s Supreme Political Council, lost his life in Saudi airstrikes that targeted his residence in the Red Sea port city of Hudaydah on Thursday.

The council was formed by the Houthi movement and the General People’s Congress Party to run state affairs in the absence of an effective government in 2016, a year after the Saudi regime and a coalition of its allies began their US-backed war against the country.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Were I either a Saudi or US military commander on the ground in Yemen, I would tend to take these people at their word.

Senate Confirms Pompeo’s Appointment As Secretary Of States

United States’ President, Donald Trump’s pick for secretary of state, Mike Pompeo, narrowly won approval from a Senate panel Monday, paving the way for the CIA director to become America’s top diplomat.

A dramatic last-minute flip by Republican Senator Rand Paul, who for weeks had expressed opposition to Pompeo over his stance on the Iraq war and surveillance issues, gave the spy chief a narrow edge.

That allowed Trump to avoid an embarrassing setback as he sought to replace Rex Tillerson, the secretary of state he fired in March.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Pompeo's appointment, with Senate confirmation, guarantees that the wars will continue, unabated, and that the US/Military Industrial complex will get everything it wants, no matter if it actually works, or not, for our military.

Did McCabe issue ‘Stand-Down’ order on FBI Clinton Email Investigation?

Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe is now facing possible criminal charges for lying under oath about leaks he made to The Wall Street Journal in 2016, in an effort to salvage his reputation and give his account to journalists who were questioning whether he gave a “stand-down” order to FBI agents investigating the Clinton Foundation.

Multiple former FBI officials, along with a Congressional official, say that while there may have been internal squabbling over the FBI’s investigation into the Clinton Foundation at the time, there was allegedly another “stand-down” order by McCabe regarding the opening of the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of her private email for official government business.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Drip, Drip, Drip!!

MERCK ACCUSED OF FRAUD, DECEIT, NEGLIGENCE IN US GARDASIL CASE

Merck’s aggressive agenda to increase HPV vaccine uptake rates, despite causing thousands of severe injuries, is hitting a stumbling block in a court case alleging blatant corruption.

There has been documented evidence that the HPV vaccine has caused more injuries than any other vaccination in history. Despite this evidence however, the HPV vaccination has continued to be hailed a success by the pharmaceutical industry and governments alike.

According to the World Health Organisation’s (WHO) VigiAccess database, as of April 09, 2018, a total of 85,329 reports of adverse reactions have been filed regarding the HPV vaccination. These reports include 37,699 reports of nervous system disorders; 2450 cardiac disorders, (including 38 cardiac arrests) 533 reports of Postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS); over 3200 reports of seizures or epilepsy, 8453 syncope, and 389 deaths.

UK BANK’S TECH CHAOS BLOCKS CUSTOMERS FROM THEIR FUNDS: DAY 5

As bank IT system revamps go, few have been as disastrous as UK bank TSB’s latest system upgrade, which began on Friday, was supposed to be up and running by Monday morning, but is still down on Tuesday evening. It’s now Day Five of the crisis and an estimated 1.9 million TSB customers still cannot use the bank’s online service. According to customer testimonials featured on The Guardian, some cannot even withdraw cash with their ATM card or their credit cards.

One TSB customer was reportedly given access to another customer’s £35,000 savings account, £11,000 Isa, and a business account when he logged onto his online banking account on Monday night — an allegation the bank denies. “There’s been no data breach whatsoever. I can categorically say that customers’ data is safe,” said the bank’s CEO, Paul Pester. Judging by the tone of some of their tweets and comments, the customers are not wholly convinced.

TOP SECRET: DOD BUILDING $110 MILLION DRONE BASE IN NIGER

If you thought America’s overseas wars had reached their limit - think again.

The United States Department of Defense (DoD) is building a new $110 million drone base in Niger, adding to its existing footprint of more than 800 military bases in more than 70 countries, the Associated Press (AP) reports.

On Monday, the AP detailed in a report that the U.S. Air Force is constructing a base for weaponized drones, the newest front in America’s expanding foreign wars “against the growing extremist threat in Africa’s vast Sahel region.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder; just how many Niger, and other African citizens, the US military intends to assassinate via drone strike, in its unending quest to expropriate raw materials and resources to which the US government has utterly no moral right?!?!?

LEGAL MEDICAL MARIJUANA PATIENT JAILED 10 DAYS AFTER TESTING POSITIVE FOR THC

A twenty-four-year-old medical marijuana patient in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, spent ten days behind bars after a blood test showed THC in his system despite his legal use of the plant.

CBS Pittsburgh reports that Sampson Bailey was in court on unrelated charges from last year related to credit card fraud when an unnamed judge speculated that he was high and demanded that he take a drug test. Though Bailey denies showing up in court under the influence of cannabis, his test came up positive for THC (even one single use of cannabis stays in the system for at least one to two days, meaning the positive test result did not prove he was actually high in court).

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder just how many pharaceutical companies are in this judge's portfolio; obviously, they have a very limited understanding of US law, where one is innocent until proven guilty, but ascribes to the polar opposite, now known as Code Napoleon Law, where one was presumed guilty until proven innocent.

AUSTRALIAN GOV'T SCOOPED UP TONS OF CELL SITE LOCATION DATA TO TRACK CITIZENS' MOVEMENTS

A couple of years after it happened, Australian citizens are finally being (indirectly) informed their government harvested cell site location info to track their daily activities. This isn't the work of an intelligence agency or a secretive law enforcement effort. Instead, it's an (unannounced) partnership between the Australian Bureau of Statistics (which handles the Australian Census) and a cellphone service provider. The provider apparently willingly turned over cell site info without a court demand, government mandate, or consultation with its customers. Asher Wolf has the details at Medium:

The ABS claims population estimates have a “major data gap” and so they’ve been a busy bee figuring out a way to track crowd movement. Their solution? Mobile device user data.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Never say anything on a cell phone you don't want to be tracked; keep your Facebook/Messenger/Emails vanilla.

Citizens of technologically advanced countries nowhave no rights to prevent this astonishing level of surveillance, and the datamining which follows.

MSM IS FRANTICALLY ATTACKING DISSENTING SYRIA NARRATIVES, AND IT LOOKS REALLY BAD

I write a lot about how, in a political environment that is saturated in disinformation and propaganda, it’s important to ignore people’s words and watch their actions instead to get a clear picture of what’s really happening. You could not ask for a better illustration of this than the recent behavior of the mass media with regard to Syria.

The always excellent Moon of Alabama put out a piece yesterday detailing the immense deluge of attack editorials disguised as information that have been churned out recently about anyone who questions the establishment Syria narrative, including a single day in which no less than seven smear pieces were issued by prominent publications. Seven. In one day.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The following is a very interesting window on which companies own what in terms of presstitute media:

Who Wons CNN/NBC/MSN/FOX: SOME FACTS.

The article goes on to state:

"GENERAL ELECTRIC --(donated 1.1 million to GW Bush for his 2000 election campaign)

Television Holdings:
* NBC: includes 13 stations, 28% of US households.
* NBC Network News: The Today Show, Nightly News with Tom Brokaw, Meet the Press, Dateline NBC, NBC News at Sunrise.
* CNBC business television; MSNBC 24-hour cable and Internet news service (co-owned by NBC and Microsoft); Court TV (co-owned with Time Warner), Bravo (50%), A&E (25%), History Channel (25%).
The "MS" in MSNBC
means microsoft
The same Microsoft that donated 2.4 million to get GW bush elected.

Other Holdings:
* GE Consumer Electronics.
* GE Power Systems: produces turbines for nuclear reactors and power plants.
* GE Plastics: produces military hardware and nuclear power equipment.
* GE Transportation Systems: runs diesel and electric trains. "

GE is part and parcel of the Unhinged, Surveilled States of Amerika's military industrial complex; therefore, any narrative regarding the reality that the US has NOT been invited to get rid of the Western-sponsored, trained, and funded Jihadis, but Russia has, will be squashed like a bug.

GE wants to see more and more wars against Syria, Russia, China, and Iran and whoever is on the Deep State (and Israel's) "To Regime Change" lists, and those lists are massive.

This is ultimately about who controls the oil in the Middle East, and in what monetary denominations that oil will be sold.

GE is right now in a massive management shakeup, due to lousy performance How GE went from American Icon to Astonishing Mess, and are desperate for something - ANYTHING - to get them out of it. Things are so bad, in fact, that it would be ridiculous for them not to want a war, to turn their flagging fortunes around.

But such a war comes at potentially great geopolitical, military, and fiscal risk to the Unhinged, Surveilled, States of America.

A further US military incursion into Syria will, undoubtedly, bring a military reaction from Russia, and this is where things could get...awkward and ugly in a heartbeat.

We are already hearing the Israeli government making noises, threatening Russia not to use its S-300 or S-400 Defensive system against their missile attacks in Syria, and insists that it will continue attacking Syria.

IF Israel attacks again, and is soundly trounced by these Russian defensive systems, you can almost bet Israel will be crying to the US government that they are being "unfairly attacked", and that the US has to back them up, millitarily, in Syria.

I would like to politely suggest to the Trump administration to not do this; our military doesn't have the troop strength, the weaponry, the manufacturing or the money to insure a positive outcome to a conventional war against Russia in Syria; and those are just the facts.

Corporations like GE or Microsoft do not care that the costs of such attacks will be primarily borne in blood and money by the US; they only care about their profit margins, and the leadership of both companies have had their consciences collectively surgically removed.

NORTH KOREA’S NUCLEAR TEST SITE HAS COLLAPSED ... AND THAT MAY BE WHY KIM JONG-UN SUSPENDED TESTS

North Korea’s mountain nuclear test site has collapsed, putting China and other nearby nations at unprecedented risk of radioactive exposure, two separate groups of Chinese scientists studying the issue have confirmed.

The collapse after five nuclear blasts may be why North Korean leader Kim Jong-un declared last Friday that he would freeze the hermit state’s nuclear and missile tests and shut down the site, one researcher said.

The last five of Pyongyang’s six nuclear tests have all been carried out under Mount Mantap at the Punggye-ri nuclear test site in North Korea’s northwest.

A research team led by Wen Lianxing, a geologist with the University of Science and Technology of China in Hefei, concluded the collapse occurred following the detonation last autumn of North Korea’s most powerful thermal nuclear warhead in a tunnel about 700 metres (2,296 feet) below the mountain’s peak.

The test turned the mountain into fragile fragments, the researchers found.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

However this happened, the timing is fortuitous, regarding potential US/North Korean talks between President Kim Jung Un and President Trump, later this year.

Israel warns of attack if Russia air defences used in Syria

Israel's Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman said Tuesday that his country would attack Russian S-300 air defence systems in Syria if they were used against Israeli targets.

His remarks came a day after the Russian newspaper Kommersant reported that Moscow could soon start to deliver S-300 systems to its ally Damascus, and cited a source as warning of "catastrophic" consequences if they were attacked.

"What's important to us is that the defensive weapons the Russians are giving Syria won't be used against us," Lieberman told the news website Ynet.

"If they're used against us, we'll act against them."

Russia and Syria signed an accord in 2010 for the S-300 system but the missiles have not been delivered because of Israeli pressure, according to Kommersant.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said earlier this month that no decision had yet been taken on the S-300 missiles.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation: what Israel has just guaranteed is that a Russian self-defense unit, like the S-300, or S-400 will be used to take Israeli missiles down, if they are used against syria

When it comes to Israeli hubris in this instance, payback... will be a bear.

LGBTQ Group Pulls Joy Reid’s Award Over Anti-Gay Blog Posts

LGBTQ group PFLAG has rescinded an award honoring MSNBC host Joy Reid amid a growing backlash to anti-gay blog posts that appeared on Reid’s old blog.

PFLAG was poised to honor Reid with the group’s annual “Straight for Equality in Media” award in May but reversed that decision on Tuesday after Reid’s explanation for the posts appeared to fall apart.

The anti-gay posts, which internet sleuths found on the Internet Archive April 18, had been fabricated by unknown hackers, Reid claimed. The archive issued a statement on Tuesday disputing Reid’s claim, declaring they had found no evidence of manipulation.

Reid previously apologized in December 2017 for old blog posts speculating on the sexual orientation of former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist.

LGBT Activists Just Publicly Exploited This 3-Year-Old Toddler

Hybrid War In Reverse: Why The SDF Can’t Hold The Euphrates

This hybrid war, with multiple and difficult to distinguish sides against the Syrian state, is practically over and isolated now only to Idlib and part of Dara province with no perspective for the future. NATO’s humiliation with its failed cruise missiles strikes proved that NATO’s humiliation with its failed cruise missiles strikes proved that NATO is incapable to win any war without full air supremacy.

So what is left? The only option is prolonging the war, forcing Damascus to liberate all the territory at a cost and not in a quick manner. The meeting between Putin, Rohani and Erdogan was established to put together a statement that they are against any US zone in Syria. But what does that mean in perspective, how will they crush US zone of influence?

The US established the SDF forces in the period of the war which was its last hope for a footprint in Syria.>>>

America’s Most “Jewish” Secular College Votes to Divest from Israel

Students at Barnard College just voted overwhelmingly to ask the school’s administration to divest from and boycott eight companies that do business with Israel and profit from the Israeli government’s treatment of Palestinians. Barnard, a women’s college that is part of Columbia University, passed the referendum by a 64 to 36 percent margin, with about half of the school’s students participating in the vote — a turnout much higher than in previous votes on the subject, perhaps reflecting Israel’s recent shooting of more than 2,000 unarmed Gazan protesters.

The result of the vote is being hailed as a major victory for Palestinian-rights movement BDS, the campaign to boycott, divest and sanction Israel for its violations of international law in Palestine.

IN DEPTH: Color Revolution Explodes In Nicaragua

Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega has ditched a controversial pension reform that would see an increase in both worker and employer pay-in, with a 5% reduction in benefits. This sparked deadly protests across the country, which saw its worst violence on Sunday, April 22nd. In a televised meeting on Sunday evening, Ortega said he was cancelling the reforms “which acted as a trigger that started this whole situation”. Ortega has been in power since 2007, coming in as part of the ‘pink tide’ of ’21st Century Socialism’ that swept Latin America in the last two decades. In many instances in response to US pressure, including crude oil price manipulation, the projects of these left-wing governments were placed on pause, and were otherwise jeopardized. In other cases, governments caved into US pressures. The Color Revolution tactic relies upon any number of factors. In this case, the ‘perfect storm’ was created.
