Mainstream Media Incitement of Violence Against Republicans Leads to Shooting of U.S. Congressman

You know the liberal stereotype of violent right-wing shooters?

You know: the abortion clinic shooters, the Klan and other hate crime types, the right-wing militiamen, etc.?

It almost seems as if that’s now been flipped 180 degrees …

For example, the madman who opened fire and shot a sitting U.S. congressman (and majority whip) and others today is a liberal who wanted to “kill as many Republicans as possible“, and who had recently written:

It’s Time to Destroy Trump & Co.

And at least some liberals expressed pleasure that the congressman was shot.

How did the left become the crazies advocating violence against other Americans?

CALIFORNIA MAYBE REPLACING ITS ‘PRISON-INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX’ WITH SOMETHING FAR WORSE

Since 2006, California’s inmate population has gone down by nearly a quarter, due in part to a Supreme Court mandate that found conditions in California’s notoriously overcrowded prisons to be ‘cruel and unusual punishment.’ The inmate population further declined after California passed a proposition in 2014 that reduced sentencing for nonviolent drug offenders. Still, the annual corrections budget has continued to increase, with current costs now double what they were in 2005.

But the very same budget report that allocates $11.3 billion to corrections also predicts an additional population decrease of 11,500 inmates over the next four years.

So what gives?

Part of the answer, at least, comes down to prison unions.

“It’s an example of how powerful public-sector unions keep the state from getting spending under control, even when the need for such spending plummets,” wrote Steven Greenhut in an op-ed for the California Policy Center.

STUDY: US ONLY ADMITS TO ABOUT ONE IN FIVE LETHAL DRONE STRIKES

A new report compiled by the Columbia Law School Human Rights Clinic and the Sanaa Center for Strategic Studies has found that the United States only admits officially to about one fifth of their drone strikes which end up killing someone, saying this hurts accountability.

That the US has been deliberately evasive about its drone program is hardly news, but this appears to be the first study aimed at specifically figuring exactly how many lethal drone strikes have been officially acknowledged.

This has been a growing problem with US airstrikes in Iraq and Syria as well, with official Pentagon figures on civilian death tolls dramatically lower than those recorded by private NGOs, with the difference often a factor of ten or more as the US downplays the tolls.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Federal Government believes it has only two functions; to continue to lie to the American people about what they are really doing, with these military operations, and rob them blind.

That, unfortunately, is all it is good for, currently.

Sen. Rand Paul: Why should we Give Money or Arms to Saudi Arabia to End up in the Hands of ISIS?

In an op-ed for FoxNews.com, Paul said lawmakers and their constituents should have a say in the arms deal.
"In 2016, Congress overwhelmingly voted to allow the family members of those killed in the 9/11 attacks to sue Saudi Arabia. So why, less than a year later, are we agreeing to sell Saudi Arabia billions of dollars in arms to further escalate a war that has been loudly and repeatedly condemned internationally?" Paul wrote.

What The Hell Is Happening In Venezuela?

By Brandon Turbeville

As Venezuela continues to burn, Western media outlets are also aflame with reports of the brutal crackdown on protesters, the oppression by the Venezuelan government, and the dire straits of the Venezuelan economy. According to these outlets, the reason Venezuela is in the condition it finds itself in today is simple – a refusal to embrace “Western” democracy and free trade neoliberalism as well as the inherent corruption of oppressive rulers like Chavez and now Maduro.

Unfortunately, many alternative media outlets are aflame with much the same rhetoric, glorifying the “democracy” protesters and the Venezuelan “opposition” while similarly blaming the oppressive Venezuelan government and socialism for the country’s ills...

Hodgkinson is a 66-year-old man from Belleville, Illinois, NBC News reported, citing federal law enforcement officials. He is currently in police custody.

The shooting took place as a GOP congressional baseball team was practicing in Alexandria, Virginia, ahead of a charity game between Republicans and Democrats scheduled for Thursday.

Police say it is too early to determine a motive in the shooting.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The motive is that he wanted to shoot Republicans.

Liberals Post Anti-Trump Messages After Rep. Scalise Shooting

Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA), the House Majority Whip, was shot along with his aides and a Capitol Hill police officer this morning.

The tragic situation, where the shooter opened fire for 10 minutes, would have been worse except that Scalise travels with a security team, unlike most House members.

But because Scalise supports the Constitution and gun rights, liberals immediately went on the attack.

This is absolutely vile:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If it does turn out that the shooter is a liberal, there will be a heaping serving of crow for dinner.

Congressman, Staffer, And Police Shot At Republican Baseball Practice In Virginia

A Senate staffer who was at the practice, but asked not to be identified, told BuzzFeed News that the alleged gunman asked someone there if those assembled were Republicans or Democrats. When told they were Republicans, the gunman opened fire, reloading two or three times, the staffer said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, we may assume the shooter is a disgruntled liberal? That is going to be an interesting wrinkle since it is the liberals who advocate banning guns!

Va. shooting that wounded Rep. Steve Scalise believed to be 'deliberate attack'

Sources told CNN that they believe the target was intentional, but it's unclear if it was one person or more. Rep. Mark Walker (R-North Carolina) told NBC that he thinks the "gunman was there to kill as many Republican members as possible."

The suspect allegedly talked to Rep. Jeff Duncan (R-South Carolina) briefly before the shooting began.

"Are those Republicans or Democrats out there practicing?" the gunman allegedly asked Duncan, according to CNN.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I see three possibilities here.

1. This is a stunt to stampede Congress into repealing the Second Amendment.

2. The shooter is on prescription anti-depressants.

3. (the worst) This is the beginning of a shooting war between disgruntled liberals and the rest of us.

House Majority Whip Steve Scalise was among a number of people shot Wednesday morning during a GOP baseball practice in Alexandria, Virginia.

He was in stable condition, said two different senior-level GOP aides. One source said the Republican lawmaker was wounded in the hip area.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

FOX News is already saying that the rifle used "may have been" an AR-15 which makes this feel like a gun-grabber stunt to stampede Congress into a gun ban!

May is essentially being forced to either reverse Article 50 or seal a 'Soft Brexit' deal for Britain

LONDON - Prime Minister Theresa May is being encouraged to either reverse Article 50, and cancel Britain's plan to leave the European Union, or seal a "soft Brexit" deal that is less harsh than what she was pushing for before the snap general election.

May triggered Article 50 in March, which kickstarted the official two year period where Britain has to negotiate its deal to leave the EU. Britain will leave the EU on March 29, 2019 - unless she calls to reverse it and all other 27-EU member states vote unanimously to allow her to cancel Brexit.

Video: Syrian Army Reaches Border with Iraq, Strategic Implications, Failure of US Plan to Create a Buffer Zone Controlled by Western Backed Militants?

On June 9, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and its allied militia groups reached the border with Iraq in the area north of the US-led coalition garrisons at the village of At Tanf and Al Zquf. This advance dramatically changed the strategic situation in southeastern Syria and de-facto allowed the Syrian-Iranian-Russian alliance to win the race for the border with Iraq.

The key goal of the US-led coalition actions near the border was to prevent the SAA from linking up with the allied Popular Mobilization Units (PMU) operating in Iraq and to build a buffer zone controlled by Western-backed militant groups between the two countries.

The PMU is a major power in Iraq and an official part of the Iraqi Armed Forces. It’s currently conducting a large-scale operation against ISIS terrorists at own side of the border. The June 9 advance destroyed the US-led coalition’s plans.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder; in light of this debacle, what is the US government and military are really prepared to do now to regime-change Damascus?!?

The following, very troubling article appeared yesterday in sputniknews.com:

Poster bearing a portrait of President Bashar al-Assad: Is US Preparing for Assad's Removal Amid Strikes on Damascus' Allies?

The article goes on to state:

"Washington is harboring a plan for a new "color revolution" in Syria, seeking to oust Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and replace him with a pro-American submissive government, Russian Senator and intelligence veteran Igor Morozov told RIA Novosti.

The US is preparing a large-scale operation aimed at toppling Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and replacing him with a pro-American puppet regime, Russian Senator Igor Morozov, a member of the Federation Council's Foreign Affairs Committee, believes.

"The United States is making efforts to seize the strategic initiative in Syria by carrying out a 'color revolution' with the assistance of the armed forces; [they] are preparing an attack on Damascus to oust the current Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and install a submissive leadership in [Syria's] government," Morozov told RIA Novosti."

I hope to heck that Russian Senator Morozov is absolutely wrong on this; but unfortunately, just because a move is the most ham-fistedly, pig-headedly stupid move the US government can make, us utterly no guarantee that they will not do it.

Such a move will most probably lead to war with Russia.

Israeli DM: Al-Jazeera Is ‘Nazi-, Soviet-Style Propaganda’

Israeli officials have been eagerly backing regional hostility toward Qatar, and Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman has doubled down on that, accusing the Qatar-funded al-Jazeera network, the most popular news media outlet in the Middle East, of being “Nazi-, Soviet-style propaganda.”

Lieberman’s evidence for this was that al-Jazeera has often run stories critical of Israel, saying that such behavior doesn’t rise to the level of journalism. Ironically, al-Jazeera is historically the only Arab media outlet that has allowed Israeli officials on to tell their side of the story at all, with most outlets banning Israelis as a matter of course.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Israeli DM Lieberman, a word, please.

Your rant appears to be borne from desperation on the cusp of madness.

I have always found Al-Jazeera (English version) to be a reasonable, and responsible, voice for the Arab world, and the quality of its journalism is generally quite elevated.

Israel has, most generally, treated Palestinians in the occupied territories quite horrifically, and that reality cannot be disproven, even by such vicious, and logic-challenged, rants such as this.

Israel Cuts Gaza Electricity at Abbas’ Request

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas’ effort to cut electricity to the Gaza Strip as a means of “pressuring” Hamas to hand over control of the region to him is finally getting support from Israel’s security cabinet, which today signed off on a plan to cut exports to the Gaza Strip by 40%, meaning about 45 minutes less of electricity per day in a strip that already is in a state of blackout more than three-quarters of the time.

Abbas had originally sought a 100% cut in Gaza’s electricity, but Israel refused, citing humanitarian concerns. Even with this smaller cut, Israeli military advisers are warning a mounting humanitarian crisis in the Gaza Strip will likely escalate the level of violence along the Israeli border.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas has shown his true colors, and they are those of a monster, as someone who would ask that this electricity be cut to Palestinians for purely political purposes.

The following, related story from haaretz.com is deeply worrying:

Hamas warns: Israel's 'disastrous' new power cut would spark an explosion in Gaza

But perhaps, this kind of "explosion" is precisely what Tel Aviv wants to happen as the "excuse" for massive assassinations of Palestinians, as happened in Operation Cast Lead.

5,000+ NATO troops to take part in ‘Iron Wolf’ drills in Lithuania

NATO troops have begun a 10-day military exercise, Iron Wolf 2017, in Lithuania, as part of a broader series of maneuvers aimed at deterring Russian “aggression.” Around 5,300 troops from 10 NATO countries are set to take part
The maneuvers began Monday with opening ceremonies at military training grounds in Pabrade and Rukla (near Kaunas). The drills, which will last until June 23, are meant to test the capabilities of the German-led Forward Presence (eFP) Battalion Battle Group, also comprising soldiers from Belgium, the Netherlands and Norway. In July, Luxembourg will also contribute its forces to the group.

The exercises will be supervised by Lithuanian troops from the Iron Wolf Mechanised Infantry Brigade and the Žemaitija Brigade Motorized Infantry unit, who will plan and arrange defensive and offensive operations. The forces will practice coordination efforts and operating in populated areas.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Look for a possible false flag, to be blamed against Russia, when NATO does those exercises in the Suwalki Gap.

The timing (starting one week from Saturday, and ending next Monday), are absolutely perfect for the US 24 hour news cable, and the location is also absolutely perfect for some kind of "military mishap", to be blamed on Russia.

John Bull's Other Haters

[A to-the-point condensation of cold, hard facts regarding the Left's cognitive dissonance. Any one of them who possess a mind even partially able to examine the contradiction of his/her position must surely grasp such after reading this.}

The United Kingdom's new minority government is being maintained in power by Northern Ireland's Democratic Unionist Parity. Barely had the news emerged than the DUP, as we saw in the accompanying photo, instantly catapulted over previously reviled bogeypersons such as Katie Hopkins and Morrissey to become fashionable young London's latest two-minute hate. Two minutes, incidentally, is not an Orwellian allusion but the time between first hearing about them and painting up your placard. Brendan O'Neill in The Spectator:

One protester's comment summed up the flimsiness of the fury. 'I didn't know who the DUP were, I had to Google them,' he said. From Googling a party to railing against it in the space of minutes: the modern mindset summed up.

SYRIAN TROOPS MOVE CLOSER TO RAQQA AS THE US DROPS CHEMICAL WEAPONS ON THE CITY

RECENT VIDEO HAS EMERGED OF THE US DROPPING WHAT APPEARS TO BE TOXIC WHITE PHOSPHORUS MUNITIONS ON THE CITY.

The Syrian Arab Army has captured villages in Al-Raqqa Governorate for the first time since ISIS forced Syrian troops to abandon the region to terrorists in 2013.

Syria’s elite Tiger Forces have been making remarkable progress in the race to Raqqa while the United States is also trying to get a piece of the largely symbolic self-proclaimed capital of the so-called Islamic State.

Just as they had done in their Iraqi stronghold of Mosul, ISIS fighters in Raqqa have been fleeing the city with Deir ez-Zor being their primary destination.

This comes as the US planes have been filmed dropping what appears to be the illegal chemical weapon white phosphorus on the city.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Apparently, according to the current regime in DC, the infliction of hot, flaming death, by bombing with white phosphorous, which eats and devours flesh to the bone, is only a war crime when other countries do it.

I don't know about you, but I am very emotionally and morally tired of being a citizen of a country so thoroughly comfortable with committing war crimes around the planet.

I can assure you that the next set of images are horrifically, stomach-churningly graphic, but I think you really need to see some real-world examples of what is being done in your name, and with your tax dollars, in Syria.

Sessions Asks Congress To Undo Medical Marijuana Protections

U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions is asking Congressional leaders not to renew a current federal law that prevents the Department of Justice from spending money to interfere with state medical marijuana laws.
“I believe it would be unwise for Congress to restrict the discretion of the Department to fund particular prosecutions, particularly in the midst of an historic drug epidemic and potentially long-term uptick in violent crime,” Sessions wrote in a letter to Republican and Democratic House and Senate leadership. “The Department must be in a position to use all laws available to combat the transnational drug organizations and dangerous drug traffickers who threaten American lives.”

The letter, sent to Capitol Hill last month, was shared with MassRoots by a Congressional staffer.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Remember what Deep Throat said, during the Watergate debacle?!?

"Follow the money!!"

This does make me wonder what a forensic accounting analysis of Session's financial statements would reveal about support from the tobacco, alcohol, and pharmaceutical industries has been for him, over the years, that he is making these bone-headed pronouncements about marijuana.

He is also doing an horrific disservice to our Vets, struggling with PTSD, where at has been shown that marijuana alleviates their symptoms far better, and with far less complications, than do prescription drugs.

There is absolutely no research I have read, indicating that marijuana, in any way, makes people violent.
