Trump: ‘My Generals’ Authorized US Missions In Niger': I Gave Them Authority to Do What's Right'

In comments Wednesday regarding the recent revealed US military operation inside Niger, President Trump confirmed that he never personally authorized any of the mission, but rather that “my generals and my military” did that all on their own.

Trump insisted his generals “are great generals” and “I gave them authority to do what’s right” and he is confident that eventually “we’re going to win.” Trump added that he’s been finding out about the mission just like everyone else has.

Which seems like a huge problem, despite no one treating it like one. President Trump was apparently “informed” of Niger after the October 4 ambush when they realized one of the soldiers was missing, and Senate Armed Services

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The stock answer as to why the US military is in Niger is "ISIS"; the real answer as to why the US military is in Niger has to do with its abundance of natural resources; expropriating them; and not letting Russia or China exploit them.

The Natural Resources of Niger

And that President Trump was not informed of the Niger operation until after the ambush had taken place, smacks of an absolutely cavalier lack of communications between his generals and President Trump.

To an ordinary person like myself, this is extraordinarily frightening, and could, potentially, put us into a would war which the President would be unable to stop, because he couldn't see it coming, due to the actions of these generals.

And beneath it, comes the following headline:

US Prepares Armed Drones for Lethal Strikes in Niger: Soldiers' Deaths Used to Pressure Niger Govt to Accept Strikes

The drone strikes will do precisely what they have done in places like Afghanistan; Pakistan; Somalia; Iraq; Yemen; and Syria; they will kill far more innocent civilians than the bad guys, then radicalize those who are left behind to become jihadists, and our troops' worst enemies, literally.

I am watching the feed on Fox News right now, seeing President selling his proposal to conquer the opioid addiction in this country; I have to wish that this country was not, collectively, so addicted to other countries' natural resources.

Kaspersky Software Caught Classified NSA Malware

Russian anti-virus company Kaspersky Lab has been increasingly vilified in the US for acquiring classified US government programs. This hs led to a full ban on Kaspersky software on federal PCs, and several retails dropping the wildly popular program.

Kaspersky Lab’s own internal investigation into the matter revealed that was indeed the case, in as much as its antivirus software “accidentally” swept up NSA malware and its adjoining source code during a 2014 malware scan, even though that malware was itself classified.

This means, however, that the antivirus software was doing exactly what it was supposed to do, sweeping up computer malware, and collecting data for analysis to improve their ability to fight off such attacks in the future.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The bigger question is, what the heck was the NSA malware and its source code doing, out in the world, please?!?!? And which country's software was it intended to infect, Russia's?!?

US House Passes ‘Harshest Ever’ North Korea Sanctions

In a 415-2 vote, the House of Representatives has passed the “Otto Warmbier Act,” a new round of sanctions against North Korea described as the “harshest ever” in US history. If it passes, it would ban anyone who does any business or cooperates in any way with North Korea from having US business ties.

In addition to the sanctions, the bill also “honors” all Americans who have died while in North Korean custody. It is named after Otto Warmbier, who died in June after being in North Korean custody.

Reps. Justin Amash (R-MI) and Thomas Massie (R-KY) voted against the bill, with Massie warning he believed the bill moves the US closer to war, and creates tensions with natural allies.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This bil is primarily symbolic in nature, as it cannot really damage North Korea's economy in any practical way.

But it does bear witness to the increasingly unhinged attitude those in Congress bear toward North Korea, and further ratchets off any attempt at meaningful dialogue toward an de-escalation of tentions. Of course, President Trump's and Kim Jung Un's "war of words", consisting primarily of ad hominem attacks on each other, have not helped in that regard whatsoever.

Lack of communication, at diplomatic levels, may well translate into a shooting war, which would be an absolutely lousy outcome for both countries, China, and the region as a whole.

China's advice of adding moderation to communication seems more than reasonable here.

GOOGLE, FACEBOOK & COMCAST JOINTLY LIED TO CALIFORNIA LAWMAKERS TO SCUTTLE BROADBAND PRIVACY BILL

Earlier this year the GOP and Trump administration rushed to kill consumer broadband privacy rules. While the broadband industry cried like a colicky toddler when the rules were originally proposed, they were relatively modest -- simply requiring that ISPs clearly disclose what they're selling, who they're selling it to, and provide working opt out tools. The rules were proposed after ISPs repeatedly showed they were incapable of self-regulating on this front (see Verizon's zombie cookies, AT&T's attempts to charge you more for privacy, and CableOne's declaration it wanted to use credit scores to provide even worse customer support).

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This kind of behaviour is perfectly predictable from Facebook and Google!!

US LAWMAKERS URGE ATTORNEY GENERAL TO LOOK INTO PROSECUTING ENVIRONMENTALISTS AS TERRORISTS

Several members of Congress signed on to a letter recommending Attorney General Jeff Sessions look into whether the Justice Department has the laws it needs to prosecute environmental activists challenging pipelines as if they are terrorists.

The letter asks Sessions if the USA PATRIOT Act and Pipeline Safety Act contain enough provisions to criminalize actions against “energy infrastructure at the federal level.” It also asks if the Justice Department plans to prosecute any of the individuals involved in the alleged “attempted sabotage of four major crude oil pipelines in multiple states” on October 11, 2016.

“Do the attacks against the nation’s energy infrastructure, which pose a threat to human life, and appear to be intended to intimidate and coerce policy changes, fall within the DOJ’s understanding of [domestic terrorism]?” representatives add.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

We are on a very slippery slope here, with this request for redfininition of what the word "terrorist" means with regard to ecosabateurs.

Did these alleged incidents actually happen, and can be documented to have happened?!?

I find myself uncomfortable with saying this, but physical damage/sabotage to energy infrastructure cannot be tolerated, because the risks are very great of causing worse damage than a pipeline would. But does such activity rise to the bar of being labeled an "act of terrorism"?!? Perhaps yes, because it could damage more than profits; people could physically get injured, or worse. in the aftermath of such an action.

But I hope that Sessions has the horse-sense to differentiate between physical harm to a pipeline from peaceful protest about the coming into existence of a pipeline, due to ecological concerns. That right to peacefully protest actions one does not like is enshrined in the Bill of Rights.

Those who peacefully protested at the site of the Dakota Access pipeline were concerned about leaks, and were very prescient to do so. Leaks were found in the pipeline this year. Leaks discovered along the Dakota Access Pipeline.

But that being said, the oil infrastructure companies need to clean up their act, and invest in smarter, more earth-friendly ways to prevent oil leaks and spills, and also be working on the next great phase of energy development for this planet which has absolutely nothing to do with fossil fuel.

TWO-THIRDS OF US BABY FOODS TEST POSITIVE FOR ARSENIC, MANY CONTAIN LEAD & CADMIUM – STUDY

Some 65 percent of baby food products in the US – including four out of five baby formulas – contain traces of the toxin arsenic, a new study has found, but officials say there is little they can do to remove substances that could harm developing infants.
The Clean Label Project study of 530 baby products also found that 36 percent of the products contained lead, 58 percent cadmium and 10 percent acrylamide. While most samples contained only trace amounts of the toxins, some exceeded the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recommendations by up to six times.

The transparent labeling advocacy group said that Gerber, Enfamil, Plum Organics and Sprout – market-leading brands – produced some of the most contaminated baby foods.

“The baby industry needs to do a better job in protecting America’s most vulnerable population,” Jaclyn Brown, the executive director of the Clean Label Project, told USA Today.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The FDA is completely compromised on this issue, and should be collectively sacked for allowing these poisons into baby food.

Recommendations for clean food, free of these poisons, should be compulsory, period, end of discussion, and the CEO of the first baby food manufacturer flouting strict guidelines, should be doing hard jail time, for allowing it to happen.

AMERICA'S DRUG WAR IS DEVASTATING MEXICO

Even if the drug war were to end today, there would still be street crime and gangs in the far-distant future. However, these issues would be on a dramatically smaller scale. Mexico’s street gangs could never ascend to the level of an organized crime outfit without the massive profits from illegal drugs to pay for the necessary weaponry, hitmen, political protection, etc.

By the same token, drug money evokes a vicious cycle of rampant criminality that goes far beyond drug trafficking. In other words, Mexico’s cartels are diversified criminal organizations that don’t limit themselves to drug smuggling.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There are two things which need to happen here. First, decriminalize the use of drugs completely in the US, knocking out the profit motive for creating and selling them.

Secondly, making it impossible for illegal drug gangs to get into the States.

Of course, that is likely to happen when pigs become aware that they are aerodynamic, because of all the money legitimate financial institutions make in laundering drug money, and the huge profits made by for-profit prisons in incarcerating convicted drug felons.

Yes, I know I am cynical; but some days, I just cannot keep up!!

Why A Nuclear War Between America And North Korea Is Very Possible

By 2020, North Korea will either be a post-atomic wasteland; an active war zone; or a de facto nuclear-armed state with a fully developed intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) capability, and grudgingly accepted as such. To paraphrase Churchill’s familiar bon mot on democracy, learning to live with that reality would be the worst outcome, except for all the alternatives.

Former FDA Commissioner Charged in RICO Lawsuit

A Federal Lawsuit charges Dr. Margaret Hamburg, former Commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) with conspiracy, racketeering & colluding to conceal deadly drug dangers – under the federal Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations law (RICO) law. The amended RICO lawsuit was filed on April 11, 2016 in the U.S. District Court in Washington DC on behalf of eight plaintiffs who claim they have suffered severe harm by ingesting the drug, Levaquin whose deadly risks were concealed to protect financial interests.

The drug is one of the controversial group of antibiotics, including Levaquin, Cipro, Avelox and other fluoroquinolones. Public Citizen petitioned the FDA in 1996 and again in 2006, to issue Black Box warnings for tendon rupture and tendinitis. Had warnings been issued, the death toll from Levaquin– reputedly more than 5,000 — and the tens of thousands who were debilitated with life-threatening diseases would likely have been averted.

U.S. WIDENS SURVEILLANCE TO INCLUDE ‘HOMEGROWN VIOLENT EXTREMISTS’

The U.S. government has broadened an interpretation of which citizens can be subject to physical or digital surveillance to include “homegrown violent extremists,” according to official documents seen by Reuters.

The change last year to a Department of Defense manual on procedures governing its intelligence activities was made possible by a decades-old presidential executive order, bypassing congressional and court review.

The new manual, released in August 2016, now permits the collection of information about Americans for counterintelligence purposes “when no specific connection to foreign terrorist(s) has been established,” according to training slides created last year by the Air Force Office of Special Investigations (AFOSI).

The slides were obtained by Human Rights Watch through a Freedom of Information Act request about the use of federal surveillance laws for counter-drug or immigration purposes and shared exclusively with Reuters.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

We are coming to the point where Christian pacifist activists, like me, who constantly exhort their governments to resolve their geopolitical issues through hard-won, moral negotiations, rather than through wars, are going to be on this same sort of watch list, even though they are no threats through drug activities or immigration.

Theodore Roosevelt statue at Museum of Natural History defaced with red liquid

A red liquid was splashed on the base of the Theodore Roosevelt statue outside the American Museum of National History in New York City early Thursday morning, police said, continuing a trend of vandalism of statues deemed offensive by certain groups.

The paint spray was discovered around 7:15 a.m. Thursday morning, said police, who believe the incident occurred sometime after 4 a.m. No words were written with the paint.

Erected in 1938, the 10-foot-tall statue depicts the nation’s 26th president on horseback, flanked by an indigenous man and an African-American man.

Professor: Replace ‘Traditional Science’ With ‘Anti-Science, Antiracist, Feminist Approach’

A women’s studies professor at the University of California, Davis has declared that the time has come to replace “traditional science” with “a much needed anti-science, antiracist, feminist approach to knowledge production.”

The professor is Sara Giordano, according to Campus Reform.

Giordano, who has a Ph.D. in neuroscience but has chosen to pursue a career in the field of gender, sexuality and women’s studies, expounds on her thesis in a lengthy essay in Catalyst, a feminist theory journal.

In her 6,611-word treatise (with only three footnotes), Giordano calls on women to “challenge the authority of Science” by “rewriting knowledge” in a way that “explicitly unsticks Science from Truth and therefore opens up possibilities to unstick Being/Power/Truth/Freedom from Coloniality.”

Government Officials Warn: Breakdown In Diplomacy With North Korea Is A Fast Track To War - Mac Slavo

Government officials are worried that a new breakdown in talks with North Korea could trigger a war. With heated rhetoric taking the stage instead of diplomacy, it could only be a matter of time before the anger hits a boiling point.

Joseph Yun, a top American diplomat to North Korea, has been warning of the breakdown in meetings on Capitol Hill and seeking help to persuade the administration to prioritize diplomacy over the heated rhetoric that appears to be pushing the two nuclear powers closer toward conflict, sources familiar with the discussions told NBC News. Diplomatic efforts between the United States and North Korea are in peril with Pyongyang shunning talks in response to President Donald Trump’s increased public attacks on Kim Jong Un, according to multiple U.S. government and congressional officials. Yun claims the White House has “handicapped” the chances of diplomacy.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

On this issue, I find myself agreeing with Corker; and btw, looking at 38north.org today, a very sober-sided analytical organisation under the auspices of John Hopkins University, which evaluates what is going on in North Korea through analyzing satellite images, there is utterly nothing to indicate that the North Koreans are moving missiles to their launch site.

The FBI’s Political Meddling

But now we come to the Rosatom disclosures last week in The Hill, a newspaper that covers Congress.

Here’s another story as plausible as we can make it based on credible reporting. After the Cold War, in its own interest, the U.S. wanted to build bridges to the Russian nuclear establishment. The Putin government, for national or commercial purposes, agreed and sought to expand its nuclear business in the U.S.

The purchase and consolidation of certain assets were facilitated by Canadian entrepreneurs who gave large sums to the Clinton Foundation, and perhaps arranged a Bill Clinton speech in Moscow for $500,000. A key transaction had to be approved by Hillary Clinton’s State Department.

Now we learn that, before and during these transactions, the FBI had uncovered a bribery and kickback scheme involving Russia’s U.S. nuclear business, and also received reports of Russian officials seeking to curry favor through donations to the Clinton Foundation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

the statement that "Its significance was missed until The Hill reported on the FBI investigation last week.", is a blatant lie.

The Independent media,, (at least WRH) has been running with this since 2015; Was the gentleman whose name appears as author of this article perhaps living on another planet when the independent press, and others, broke the story in 2015?!?

Gowdy chairs the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, which has opened a joint investigation with the Judiciary Committee in order to review the Justice Department's handling of the politically charged investigation.

Our Ever-Deadlier Police State

None of the reforms, increased training, diversity programs, community outreach and gimmicks such as body cameras have blunted America’s deadly police assault, especially against poor people of color. Police forces in the United States—which, according to The Washington Post, have fatally shot 782 people this year—are unaccountable, militarized monstrosities that spread fear and terror in poor communities. By comparison, police in England and Wales killed 62 people in the 27 years between the start of 1990 and the end of 2016.

Police officers have become rogue predators in impoverished communities. Under U.S. forfeiture laws, police indiscriminately seize money, real estate, automobiles and other assets. In many cities, traffic, parking and other fines are little more than legalized extortion that funds local government and turns jails into debtor prisons.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have absolutely no idea what feels like for a mom to have your teenager out with friends...then find they have been arrested, or worse, courtesy of a really bad decision by a police officer, even if the kid was totally innocent of doing anything wrong.

But we have to understand that this still happens in this country, particularly to poor people of color: this has to stop.

Judge Orders 3 USS Cole Defense Lawyers to Guantanamo After They Quit

Attorneys Rick Kammen, Rosa Eliades and Mary Spears quit their jobs Oct. 11 as lawyers for the man accused of orchestrating al-Qaida's warship attack. They obtained permission to do so from the chief defense counsel, Marine Brig. Gen. John Baker, who found "good cause" for their resignations. They cited a cascading ethical conflict over a lack of confidence in the confidentiality of their privileged conversations with Abd al Rahim al-Nashiri at Guantanamo, but the details are classified.

But the case judge, Air Force Col. Vance Spath, wrote in an Oct. 16 order that, while Baker "purported to find good cause" to approve their leaving the case, Spath, as judge, has not. "Accordingly, Mr. Kammen, Ms. Eliades, and Ms. Spears remain counsel of record in this case, and are ordered to appear at the next scheduled hearing," Spath wrote.

US lawmakers seek vote to abandon Saudi-led war in Yemen

A bipartisan quartet of House lawmakers is wrangling with the chamber’s leadership for a floor vote to withdraw U.S. military support for Saudi involvement in Yemen’s civil war.

California Democratic Rep. Ro Khanna, who is pressing for the vote, said Tuesday that he is in negotiations with Democratic and Republican leadership about whether the resolution is privileged under the War Powers Act and would therefore get an automatic, fast-tracked floor vote.

Such a vote, Khanna said, is likely to unite progressive Democrats and non-interventionist Republicans — though the outcome is unclear. “You may get many Democrats and Freedom Caucus members,” Khanna said, referring to the conservative wing of the House GOP caucus.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I hope that the House does overturn the AUMF; unfortunately, such a vote will most likely be vetoed by President Trump, because he believes (without a shred of evidence, other than that conjured up by Saudi Arabia and Israel) that Iran is gaining a strong foothold in Yemen.

My bet is that this slaughter in Yemen will continue unabated, to the point of nearly assassinating every last Yemeni child, woman, and medically fragile elderly person, if they haven't already dropped dead from malnutrition and cholera.

Of course, to Saudi Arabia's Prince Salmon, AKA the Butcher of Yemen, the ends, done through the commission of US government-enabled war crimes against the Yemeni people, justifies the means.

The Philippines leader oversaw the transfer of around 5,000 Kalashnikov assault rifles and roughly one million rounds of ammunition that was donated by Russia as part of a new relationship between Moscow and Manila. In addition to the machine guns, Russia's Pacific Fleet also delivered 20 military trucks for the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP).

Air Force: Pilots recalled under Trump order will serve as instructors, staff

The Air Force expects fewer than 200 retired pilots will return to active duty and serve as instructor pilots and in rated staff positions under an executive order issued by President Trump.

The Pentagon originally said after the order was signed Friday that as many as 1,000 retired pilots could be brought back for up to three years. But in a gaggle with reporters Monday at the Pentagon, Brig. Gen. Mike Koscheski, the head of a task force dedicated to fixing the Air Force’s pilot shortfall, said it likely won’t be that many.

Koscheski also said there are no plans now to have those recalled pilots fly other aircraft, such as fighters, bombers, tankers or mobility aircraft, though he could not rule out that changing at some point if the pilot shortfall continues and worsens.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have to wonder at that last bit; what if pilots recalled do not wish to instruct or fly again; will they be involuntarily recalled?!?

Brig. Gen. Mike Koscheski, one cannot have this program both ways; and why is the crisis hitting now?!? Could it not have been forseen, and corrected for earlier, before we were at risk of a potential major war in Asia (North Korea) and another war in the Middle East (Iran)?!?

Around half the drivers using Interstate 66 inside the Beltway do not have an E-ZPass or E-ZPass Flex, even though they’ll need them in less than two months when new toll lanes open, which will require the transponders during an expanded rush-hour period.

Gearing up for nuclear war is not a way to prevent nuclear war

During the Cold War, the United States kept nuclear-armed bombers on 24-hour ready alert in case our conflict with the Soviet Union ever turned hot. Thankfully, that readiness was never put to use, and after the Cold War ended in 1991, the bombers were no longer kept on standby, ready to strike.

Until, perhaps, now. As Defense One reported Sunday evening, the Air Force is preparing to revive that alert status in anticipation of an order to do so from President Trump in connection to North Korea.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A US-government generated war against North Korea would immediately put China in the position of having to defend it, as its client state.

Just because something is the most ham-fistedly, pig-headedly stupid thing that the US government could possibly do, unfortunately, is utterly no guarantee that the US government won't do it.

Right now, North Korea's Kim Jung Un is keeping to himself rather quietly, in terms of missile testing, so is giving the US government and military utterly no reason to fly off the handle at it. And in a statement by the North Korean government, about one week ago, the following has been announced:

A North Korean official reaffirmed Pyongyang's commitment to developing a long-range intercontinental ballistic missile capable of reaching "all the way to the East coast of the mainland US," on Monday, telling CNN that the rogue nation is currently not interested in diplomacy with the US until it achieves that goal. North Korea is not ruling out diplomacy, but "before we can engage in diplomacy with the Trump administration, we want to send a clear message that the DPRK has a reliable defensive and offensive capability to counter any aggression from the United States," the official said.

In spite of being called "Reckless" and "Crazy" by US and other Western media, Kim Jung Un appears to be to be quite sane and pragmatic. The development of these nuclear weapons are to act as a deterrent only to any Western attempt at regime change in North Korea. Kim understands that should he first-strike any American asset, or geopolitical friend in the region, that attack would leave North Korea a puddle of molten glass, courtesy of a US-led coalition, consisting of South Korea and Japan.

My concern here is that, failing to give the US government the "justification" which it craves in labeling North Korea as the "baddie" to be attacked mercilessly, that the US will simply create one for North Korea, by way of a false flag incident; false flags have long been a tool of US statescraft.

What the Occupied, Unhinged, Surveilled States of America need, and right the heck now, is a legitimate "Department of Peace", tasked with identifying, and implementing, peaceful means of meeting geopolitical objectives, which do not involve regime changes, or wars.

Of course, that... would be logical.
