Rosenstein Told the White House That Jared Kushner Would Not Be Getting Clearance Soon

The Washington Post reported on Friday that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein called the White House two weeks ago to discuss ongoing concerns about Jared Kushner’s security clearance.

Kushner has been accessing the nation’s top secrets for more than a year through an interim clearance that allows him to see both top-secret and sensitive compartmented information, the highest clearance level.

The issue of security clearance came to the spotlight earlier this month when Rob Porter was fired from his job as White House staff secretary after allegations of domestic abuse were publicized.>>>>

UN Security Council passes 30-day Syria truce

The UN Security Council on Saturday demanded a 30-day truce across Syria as rescuers in the country’s eastern Ghouta region said bombing had not let up long enough for them to count bodies during one of the bloodiest air assaults of the seven-year war.

Shortly after the unanimous vote by the 15-member council, warplanes struck a town in eastern Ghouta, the last rebel enclave near Syria’s capital, an emergency service and a war monitoring group said

NRA hits back at United Airlines, Delta, other companies for cutting ties

***
"The law-abiding members of the NRA had nothing at all to do with the failure of that school's security preparedness, the failure of America's mental health system, the failure of the National Instant Check System or the cruel failures of both federal and local law enforcement."

The NRA continued by saying that corporations who "decided to punish NRA membership is a shameful display of political and civic cowardice."

"Let it be absolutely clear. The loss of a discount will neither scare nor distract one single NRA member from our mission to stand and defend the individual freedoms that have always made America the greatest nation in the world."

FLASHBACK: Fort Lauderdale airport shooting suspect had visited FBI office in Alaska last year

An Iraq War veteran who had complained that the government was forcing him to watch Islamic State videos pulled a gun from his checked bag and opened fire Friday afternoon at Fort Lauderdale’s international airport, killing five people and injuring eight, authorities said.

Federal law enforcement officials said that Santiago had told the FBI that the CIA was forcing him to watch Islamic State propaganda videos to control his mind. After interviewing Santiago’s relatives and conducting other reviews and checking with other agencies, the bureau closed its assessment of him.

HMLA-269 “Gunrnners” attack helicopter squadron personnel vehicle found in parking lot near Mandalay Bay, 3 black attack helicopters spotted overflying Route 91 venue

If you are an avid Intellihub reader you may already know that three black helicopters were lurking behind the Mandalay Bay before, during, and after last year’s 1 October massacre.

The three unmarked aircraft were captured on video where they appear to have remained aloft during the entire 10-minute massacre, maneuvering well below the roof-lines of both Mandalay Bay and the Delano Hotel.

Putin’s Grand Bargain to Israel: Can Israel Digest It?

Israel has now had a taste of President Putin’s ‘stick’: Your air superiority in the North has just been punctured by the Syrian air defences. You, Israel, will lose it completely were our Russian S400s air defences to be enabled: ‘Think it over’.

Last week saw the first ‘game changer’ that almost plunged the region into war: the downing of one of Israel’s most sophisticated aircraft – an F16i by Syrian air defense.

As Ronen Bergman wrote in the New York Times: “Israel will no longer be able to act in Syria without limitations”; and secondly, “if anyone was not yet aware of it, Russia is the dominant power in the region”.

FBI Tipster Transcript Leaked: Cruz Will "Get Into A School And Shoot The Place Up": Full Text

Amid public demands for transparency, the Broward Police have released the full list of 23 calls for service to the home of attacker Nikolas Cruz, in a desperate bid to deflect criticism over handling the Parkland school shooting. The final call, however, just like the transcript from the January 5 call discussed below, shows that serious concerns were not acted on.

“In the interest of full transparency, we are making available the list of all 23 calls for service at the Cruz home,” the sheriff’s office said in a Friday tweet. “18 involved Nikolas Cruz. None appeared arrestable under Florida law. However, two of the calls remain under internal investigation.”

The head of the NRA defines his new enemies: The ‘violent left’ and judges who ‘do violence’ to the Constitution

For those wondering how the organization would respond to this new era in which there was no tangible political opposition to push off of, LaPierre answered the question in his speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference on Friday. The new enemy? A nebulous and vastly overstated violent left, working in partnership with the “left-wing media” and a judiciary that does “violence to the Constitution’s separation of powers” by opposing President Trump’s executive orders.

That argument was previewed with a video the organization released Thursday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am putting this article up, because I saw a complete travesty of what Wayne La Pierre had to say at CPAC at Haaretz this morning, and felt that all of our readers should see this version, versus the version which came from an actual transcript of the speech.

La Pierre Identified the Enemies of his Organisation - and of America, as Jews

The Haaretz smear begins with the following statements:

"LaPierre vowed that the NRA intends to go far beyond its role as a gun lobby, to warn Americans that all of their individual freedoms are being destroyed by a condescending intellectual elite. “I promise you this – the NRA will not only speak out, the NRA will speak out louder and we will speak out stronger than ever before,” with its own television station and expanded media operations to resist “the Socialist corruption of our government.”

Yes, that was stated in his speech; but Haaretz goes on to insinuate and elaborate that La Pierre had said things he did not.

Haaretz continues: "Again and again in his speech to the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Maryland, LaPierre identified the enemies of the NRA, and of America, as Jews – from Karl Marx to Bernie Sanders, from George Soros to former New York mayor Michael Bloomberg.

LaPierre singled out Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer of New York as one of the Democrats who are “liars to the core.”

To the best of my read of this article, only two Jewish people were named; they were Rahm Emanuel, the mayor of Chicago, whose city has become ungovernable because of the monstrous crime wave there and George Soros, the billionaire pushing unrestricted immigration from the Middle East and Africa upon Europe, which has produced ghastly results for the countries of Europe and their born citizens.

Were these men criticised because of their religion?!? Absolutely not. Were they criticised for what they had done, and their philosophical and political stances? Yes, which is a completely reasonable, and non-religion- bashing thing to do. Again, look at the two takes on La Pierre's address to CPAC, and decide for yourselves.

And what I thought was hysterically ironic was, that the dailystormer, a very vireulently ultra-right blog, ran with the Haaretz story as though it was absolutely correct.

Fearmongering by any side, needs to be met with cold hard facts, which I believe La Pierre delivered.

So who is the real fearmonger here, La Pierre... or the editors of Haaretz who concocted this codswallop?!?

"There Was A Mistake Made" - FBI's No. 2 Refuses To Provide Details On How Cruz Tips Were Fumbled

After admitting last week that "protocol was not followed" when at least two individuals called the FBI's anonymous tip line to warn that Nikolas Cruz, the 19-year-old suspected of murdering 17 of his former classmates, the No. 2 FBI official said Thursday that he had visited the FBI's call center this week as part of his review of why the tip wasn't followed.

He also addressed, in the most detail yet, the mounting criticisms facing the bureau, according to the Washington Post.

The remarks followed NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch's assertion that the FBI was primarily to blame for not preventing the shooting.

Shortly before Bowdich spoke Thursday, NRA chief executive Wayne LaPierre, who was speaking at the same event, said the FBI's leaders had gone "rogue."

RANCHER TAKES FEDS TO COURT OVER CAMERA THEY PLACED ON HIS PROPERTY WITHOUT PERMISSION

Ricardo Palacios, a 74-year old rancher, had gotten used to Customs and Border Protection officials tromping across his south Texas ranch lands without permission over the years. But finding a wireless surveillance camera set up in one of his trees? Not OK. Upon discovering the device, Palacios removed it immediately. It wasn't long after that he started receiving calls from CBP and the Texas Rangers demanding that he turn the camera over to them or face charges.

Having taken enough of their shit, instead of turning the camera over, Palacios gave the feds something else instead: a lawsuit.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Palacio's suit is completely reasonable; no one should be above the law in this country, and that means State and Federal Agents as well.

CDC OFFICIAL RESPONSIBLE FOR HANDLING ZIKA AND EBOLA EMERGENCIES MYSTERIOUSLY GOES MISSING

35-year-old Timothy Cunningham, a high ranking employee with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has been missing for nearly two weeks. Cunningham went home from work claiming he was sick on February 12 and has not been seen or heard from since.

According to the CDC, Cunningham is a graduate of the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and a commander in the Public Health Service who was responsible for responding to and supervising emergency situations with the Ebola virus and the Zika virus.

Last week, the Atlanta Police Department issued a missing persons notice through their Facebook page, and since it has received nearly 2,000 shares, but still no leads.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I know that this is a very sang foid evaluation, but I have to wonder what he may have found out about the diseases he was tasked with preventing, that the CDC didn't want to get out.

Unfortunately, I believe that the chances of seeing this guy alive, with a reasonable explanation of why he was out of communication, are zero to none.

SEOUL DEFIES WTO RULING, VOWS TO KEEP BAN ON JAPAN'S FUKUSHIMA SEAFOOD

South Korea vows to maintain its restrictions on Japanese seafood imports and appeal the WTO’s ruling against additional radiation tests and bans on fishery products introduced in the wake of the 2011 Fukushima nuclear disaster.
In 2015, Tokyo filed a complaint with the World Trade Organization (WTO) challenging South Korea’s import bans that were introduced on certain fish caught in Japanese waters over fears of radiation following the meltdown of three reactors at the Fukushima power plant in March 2011. In its official complaint, Japan also challenged additional testing and certification requirements placed by Seoul on Japanese fish caught from eight prefectures near Fukushima.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Oh, REALLY?!?!?

I think that Robert Azevedo, Chair of the WTO, and his close family should be required to eat Fukushima Fish for at least one year, 2 nights every week straight, and see how it affects their health!!

It's always the people whose health is not generally affected by radiated food, making the rules about who is compelled to eat that food. South Koreans officials are absolutely within their rights to refuse food they believe to be unsafe for their people.

Go... SOUTH KOREA!!

I wish the US government was as robust in keeping its citizens the hell away from all GMO products, which can cause sickness, and even death, ultimately.

But of course, Big Ag and Big Pharma are such generous contributors come re-election time, they don't dare!!

Nikki Haley: the U.S. Embarrassment at the United Nations

Her most recent foray into the world of head-scratching nonsense occurred on Tuesday, February 20. She basically, in her most eloquent way (not!), told the Palestinian government that she wouldn’t ‘shut up’, as was very appropriately suggested to her. She suggested that the Palestinians take “…the path of negotiation and compromise”.

One wonders what color the sky is on Haley’s planet. Her disconnect from reality is so severe that it’s a wonder she is able to string two words together coherently (she seldom makes it much past two). Why, one might reasonably ask, is it always the Palestinians who have to compromise? Why is no demand ever made on Israel?

Russian Presidential Elections: Boring, Useless and Necessary?

The sad reality is that these elections will change nothing and they are not only boring (no real, credible, opposition) but also useless. A grand waste of time and money. And yet, they are also necessary.

They are necessary because in the “Empire of Illusions”, to borrow Chris Hedges’ excellent expression, everybody simply has to play by the AngloZionist rules: elections are an absolute “must” even if they are self-evidently farcical.

15,000 sealed indictments = .01% arrests? None in my network of experts knows. Impatient and relatively alone as humble messengers? Own that price of leadership

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

"Work as if everything depends on us. Pray as if everything depends on God." ~ Augustine of Hippo

In the last few months, I’ve written of sealed federal indictments totaling ~5,000, then 10,000, and now pushing 15,000 (and here at “The real story is the impending arrest of the deep state”).

Among my network of experts in politics, economics, academics, and activists, none of us can point to objective data to demonstrate what this means.

A best case scenario is upcoming .01% arrests for ongoing and OBVIOUS crimes annually killing millions, harming billions, and looting trillions (with ongoing documentation below). A worst case scenario is upcoming arrests of leading activists as “domestic terrorists.”

The Coming Wars to End All Wars

The compulsive hatred of Putin by many who have almost zero idea about Putin or Russian history is disproportionate to any rational analysis, but not surprising. Trump and Putin are like weird doppelgangers in the liberal imagination." - John Steppling, "Trump, Putin, and Nikolas Cruz Walk into a Bar"

The Trump and Netanyahu governments have a problem: How to start a greatly expanded Middle-Eastern war without having a justifiable reason for one. No doubt they are working hard to solve this urgent problem. If they can't find a "justification" (which they can't), they will have to create one (which they will). Or perhaps they will find what they have already created. Whatever the solution, we should feel confident that they are not sitting on their hands. History teaches those who care to learn that when aggressors place a gun on the wall in the first act of their play, it must go off in the final act.

These sinister players have signaled us quite clearly what they have in store. All signs point toward an upcoming large-scale Israeli/U.S. attack on Lebanon and Syria, and all the sycophantic mainstream media are in the kitchen prepping for the feast.>>>

Is ‘Putin Regime’ The ‘Evil Empire’ Of Today?

One of Ronald Reagan’s greatest contributions to the overthrow of communism and the disintegration of the Soviet Union was his identification of the USSR as “the evil empire,” a term that outraged Moscow but inspired many within its borders and prompted those beyond its borders to talk about decolonization as something inevitable.

Now, Nikki Haley, the US permanent representative to the United States, has introduced a term that has outraged Russian officialdom every bit as much Reagan’s words did. She has referred the government in Moscow as “Putin’s regime,” a turn of phrase that lumps it together with those of Kim in North Korea and Asad in Syria.

Russia’s permanent representative to the UN, Vasily Nebemzya was outraged.>>>

‘Russia sends most advanced fighter jets to Syria’

Russia has reportedly sent two of its most advanced and sophisticated fighter jets to Syria, where its air force has been backing up the national army's ground operation against terrorist groups.

The reported deployment comes after the US employed earlier this month its most advanced fighter jet, the F-22 stealth fighter, in strikes against alleged terrorist targets in Syria.

Reports say two of Russia’s Su-57 fifth-generation fighter jets had been recently spotted in the skies above Syria and then seem landing at the Hmeymim airbase in the country’s western Latakia province.

Sheriff-tied political committee accepts money from convicted felon Scott Israel booster convicted in tax evasion, gun cases

PEMBROKE PARK, Fla. - A political committee supporting Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel has raised $96,000 so far, much of it at an April fundraiser for Israel at developer and garbage company owner Ron Bergeron's ranch.

One of those leading the money list is developer Yoram Izhak, who is listed on campaign filings for "Citizens for Effective Law Enforcement" as giving $5,000 personally, with another $15,000 coming from companies listed at the building he owns in North Miami.

But what may be troubling for Broward County's top cop is that Izhak is also a convicted felon who was indicted 10 years ago in a massive organized crime case.

The crime ring was known as "The Corporation" or the "Cuban Mafia" and was allegedly involved in cocaine trafficking, arson, gambling and murder.

Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel—the man whose agency failed to prevent the Parkland massacre despite having received a tip last November that Nikolas Cruz was plotting a mass shooting—has been accused of public corruption.

Two years ago, the Sun Sentinel reported that Israel was rewarding top political supporters by giving them and their family members cushy jobs doing public relations and community outreach for the Broward County Sheriff's Office. One such position, outreach manager, paid out a salary of $78,489. The person who got that job was the husband of Israel's campaign manager.

Breaking!: A report released Friday claims four of Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel’s deputies waited outside Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School while the attack was occurring.

Sheriff Israel is finished!

Now CNN reports that the Coral Springs police officers claim three other Broward County deputies were outside the school but failed to go inside as well. They quote “Coral Springs sources” who said the three “deputies had their pistols drawn and were behind their vehicles” when Coral Springs officers arrived. They said “not one of [the deputies] had gone into the school.”

The sources indicate other Broward County deputies arrived on scene, and two of those new arrivals joined with Coral Springs officers and entered the building.

The sources said, “Coral Springs police were stunned and upset that the four original Broward County Sheriff’s deputies who were first on the scene did not appear to join them as they entered the school.”

Australian weightlifting CEO wants Kiwi transgender lifter Laurel Hubbard banned from Commonwealth Games

Australia has asked for a transgender weightlifter to be banned from the Commonwealth Games, saying she has an unfair advantage over her rivals.

Kiwi Laurel Hubbard, 39, was granted permission to compete in this year's Gold Coast commonwealth Games for the women's weightlifting event.

Since then Michael Keelan, the CEO of the Australian Weightlifting Federation, disputed the decision to let the champion weightlifter compete in a letter.

According to the Sunday Telegraph Keelan wrote there was a significant disadvantage to female weight lifters.

"It is our strong view that weightlifting has always been a gender-specific sport, male and female, not a competition among individuals of various levels of testosterone," he wrote.
