Judge in Bundy Ranch Case Wants Defendants In Chains For Trial

In the case of UNITED STATES OF AMERICA VS. Cliven Bundy et al, Judge Gloria Navarro has demanded the defendants all wear chains throughout their trials. The simple question is, why? These are men who have demonstrated they are not violent nor have they attempted to escape from the prison system they have been incarcerated in for almost a year and a half.

In a response to the order by Judge Navarro, attorney for Pete Santilli, Chris Rasmussen, cited the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruling in May 2017 to bolster the claim that his client's rights are being violated, as are all the other defendants in the case.

"Peter Santilli hereby asserts his Fifth Amendment right to be present in Court without shackles," reads the motion.

Texas sheriff actively promoting visas for illegal immigrants

A Texas sheriff is actively promoting visas to the illegal immigrant community. The sheriff is preparing pamphlets advising certain illegal immigrants how they might qualify for special visas.

Travis County Sheriff “Sanctuary Sally” Hernandez came up with the idea of instructing crime victims who happen to be in the country illegally on how they can apply for a “U visa,” Fox 7 in Austin reported. Merely filing out the application for the visa, intended to help true crime victims, is enough to at least temporarily block immigration officials from deporting an applicant.

With tensions among the world’s super powers mounting in places like Ukraine, Syria, North Korea and most recently Qatar and Iran, it may only be a matter of time before someone pushes the red button.

When they do, all bets are off, and as we’ve learned from the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand in June of 1914, once the trigger is pulled there’s no going back and hundreds of millions of lives, perhaps billions, will hang in the balance.

Seoul Will Honor THAAD Agreement with US - South Korean Security Chief

South Korea’s national security adviser has said that Seoul will abide by its agreement with the US on deploying the controversial Terminal High Altitude Area Defense system (THAAD), as North Korea continues to pose “very serious and urgent threat.”

This statement follows North Korea’s claim that it has tested a new type of missile that could strike South Korean and US warships "at will" if attacked.

Four missiles were fired Thursday that traveled 125 miles before landing in the sea off North Korea’s east coast, according to South Korea national security head Chung Eui-yong.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Wow, that was a huge, and amazing turnaround, on the part of the South Korean Government...

President Trump Demands Qatar Stop Funding Terrorists

"Stop funding, stop teaching hate, and stop the killing," US President Donald Trump said Friday during a news conference with the Romanian president after alleging that Doha has propped up Islamist extremists.

"No more funding," Trump emphasized. His comments come following the diplomatic row that erupted last week between Qatar and major Middle East powers like Saudi Arabia and Egypt.

Mattis Aware of Steps Planned to Isolate Qatar - Pentagon
The "high level" of support — whether it be financial, logistical or moral — for terror groups originating in Doha must stop, the president said.

"I want to call on all of the nations to stop immediately supporting terrorism," Trump reiterated.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is painfully obvious that Tillerson's remarks earlier today were simply for American public consumption, as though the US government had absolutely nothing to do with greenlighting this coming war.

We are in a place now, where there can be no speculation about "if" a war against Qatar, and ultimately Iran, is going to happen; we are in a place of "when" such a war will happen.

My gut is telling me, sooner rather than later.

I have to wonder what the orders are for those 11,000 US service members in Qatar are going to be, once the fertilizer hits the ventilation shaft.

Twitter “Verifies” Man Who Claims to Be Bill Clinton’s Illegitimate Son (Video)

In a saga that will probably soon appear on tabloids next to supermarket checkout counters, Twitter has just given a ‘verified’ badge to Danney Williams, an Arkansas resident who claims to be Bill Clinton’s illegitimate son. Knowing the proclivities of ‘Slick Willy’, we wouldn’t put it past him to have one or several illegitimate children.

In the following video, Right Wing News muses as to whether or not Williams could really be Clinton’s son, and the implications if so. Williams has been openly campaigning for Clinton to provide a DNA sample, even telling Hillary “I heard Hillary say she spent her life helping children … If black lives truly matter to her, why not mine?” Of course, considering that Hillary has turned a blind eye to her husband’s many indiscretions for the sake of power, why should this be any different?

Tillerson Tells Arab States To Lift Qatar Blockade: "It's Hindering The Campaign Against ISIS"

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson called on the Saudi Arabia-led coalition, which includes UAE, Bahrain and Egypt and others, to lift its blockade of Qatar, saying that the cutoff is hindering the fight against the (Qatar-funded) Islamic State. Tillerson also said the blockade had led to food shortages and forced families to uproot themselves and pull their children from school.

“We believe there are unintended consequences, especially during this holy month of Ramadan but they can be addressed immediately,” Tillerson said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I applaud President Trump's Tillerson's approach to attempting to resolve this issue; and yes, it is horrifically awkward, because the US government has alliances on both sides of the issue, and Qatar hosts about 11,000 US service members.

But that being said, I am concerned that Tillerson doesn't know with whom he is dealing, between the Royal House of Saud, the Saudi government, and Saudi military. The concept of "face" is critically important in the Middle East, and unless he and President Trump can figure out a way to get the Saudis to back down without appearing to have "lost face" on this issue.

And after his visit to Saudi Arabia, Trump may have just given the Saudis the indication that they had a "green light" to go ahead with this blockade; if so, that has got to be undone, and quickly.

ISIS Ramps Up Attacks on Civilians; 477 Killed in Iraq

The United Nations said the organization is investigating airstrikes that took place on May 31 in Mosul. At the time, it was unclear whether they occurred or which forces were behind what was described as a “carpet bombing.” About 50-80 people were killed; 47 deaths were previously recorded. The U.N. also reported hundreds more Islamic State killings in recent weeks.

Conditions at the Khazir displacement camp near Mosul are deteriorating with summer coming on. Uncomfortable heat, increasing numbers of insects and reptiles, and an outbreak of scabies are making residents miserable and ill.

The United States criticized the upcoming Kurdish independence referendum as a distraction from more important issues such as the war against the Islamic State militants. Germany expressed concern that the referendum could worsen sectarian tension. Meanwhile, the Iraqi Turkoman Front (ITF), an umbrella group of political parties, rejected the referendum.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is officially horrible, and the numbers are probably far worse than these estimates.

And as to the Kurdish Referendum coming in September, we will most likely see yet more civil war in Iraq, because the Kurdish referendum is completely against the will of what is left of the Iraqi government.

And we may see regime change in Baghdad, coming from within.

Anyone out there remember the fiery cleric, Muqtada Al Sadr?!? The guy who ultimately told the US that they had to get out of town in Iraq, at precisely the date and time stated by the SOFA agreement, or else he was going to send his Mahdi army after every American in Iraq?!?

Yeah, that guy!!

Well, he is looking - and sounding - as though he wants to make a run for the
next Iraqi election. Here is what he said regarding Macron's election, this last May:

Iraqi prominent cleric Sayyid Muqtada al-Sadr said on Sunday he was looking forward to an "interfaith and inter-civilization dialogue" with France under newly-elected president Emmanuel Macron. The leader of Sadrist Movement described Macron's presidential win as a victory for the moderate politicians in Europe. In a statement, al-Sadr said, "Despite the recent ascend of evil powers in Europe, we find the extremist ideology recessed with the victory of Macron in France, and it is a very important European country". He also expressed hopes the latest developments would lead to expelling all extremist figures from Europe.

Call me silly, but I find this outreach for dialogue, very intelligent; reasonable; and he can hardly do worse than the current President of Iraq, Fuad Masum.

Of course, the US would be horrifically upset if Al-Sadr actually won the election, because there would be no guarantee that Iraq's oil would be US controlled and sold only in the US dollar, as it is now.

Water supplies cut to Kiev-controlled settlements due to government’s troops shellingMore:http://tass.com/world/950640

Water supplies to Kiev-controlled settlements in the eastern Ukrainian region of Donbass were cut after the government troops shelled a water supply facility near the village of Yasinovataya, a negotiator of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) said.
"The vast majority of citizens, who were affected by the water supply cuts, reside on the territory controlled by the Ukrainian government," said Denis Pushilin, the head of the DPR delegation to the reconciliation talks in Minsk.
"Although our citizens faced no major disruptions due to a timely effort by our utility services, residents of about 40 settlements on the opposite side of the contact line will be a lot less lucky," the Donetsk News Agency quoted him as saying.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

WHY were these soldiers ordered to shoot up their own water resources?!? Who would have made such a bone-headed decision, and why?!?

AFTER LAYING OFF THOUSANDS, BOEING CEO SAYS OFFSHORING WORK TO CHINA WON’T “DIRECTLY HARM” US JOBS

Boeing, the largest US exporter by dollar value, faces a tough environment for commercial jetliners. In 2016, net orders dropped 13% from 2015 and 53% from 2014, to just 668 planes, the lowest level since 2010! Through June 6, 2017, Boeing has just 208 net orders.

The company is under pressure to cut costs. So there has been wave after wave of job cuts through voluntary buyouts and involuntary layoffs last year and this year. Its payroll has shriveled by about 30,000 workers over the past five years. At the end of May it was down to 145,000.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Forgive me, but has Boeing's President, Dennis Muilenburg, gone absolutely barking dog, foaming at the mouth mad, to make such a statement?!?

US-BACKED FORCES ENTER RAQQA AS COALITION DROPS WHITE PHOSPHORUS BOMBS

In what some speculate may be the beginning of the end for Daesh (ISIS), the U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) entered Raqqa – Daesh’s Syrian stronghold – for the first time on Tuesday. SDF commander Rojda Felat told the AFP news agency that the group is “fighting street battles inside Raqqa now, and we have experience in urban warfare.” The advance came after heavy airstrikes by the U.S.-led coalition, which killed more than 20 civilians trying to flee the offensive by boat.

The push for the U.S.-backed SDF to claim Raqqa from Daesh has been in the works for over seven months, having only been made possible by U.S.-led coalition air support, thousands of military advisers and deliveries of heavy weapons. While the U.S.-led coalition, particularly the U.S. itself, claims that this support is all for the common cause of eradicating Daesh, their plans for Raqqa following a Daesh defeat could make the future goal of a united Syria all but impossible to achieve.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Forgive me, but if these reports about the purported US use of white phosphorous and cluster bomb weapons are true, isn't the use of both white phosphorus and cluster bomb weapons banned, internationally, for use against civilians?!?

It appears that the US military is rapidly going rogue, with an "ends justify the means" attitude (now, where have we heard THAT before?!?), and a completely cavalier "Assassinations R Us" level of insensitivity to civilian deaths.

JOHN MCCAIN’S INCOHERENT QUESTIONING OF JAMES COMEY SHOWS WHY WE NEED TERM LIMITS

Does America really need a permanent ruling class of career politicians? According to Real Clear Politics, right now Congress has an average approval rating of just 18.8 percent. It is an institution that is dominated by politicians that are able to keep winning elections over and over again because they are extremely good at raising money. And our permanent ruling class of politicians has learned that it greatly pays to pander to the special interests and the wealthy donors that are able to inject large amounts of cash into their campaigns. This incestuous system produces many incumbents that are almost unbeatable, and the result is that some of these Congress critters end up staying in Washington much, much longer than they should.

On Thursday, we witnessed a perfect example of this. Senator John McCain’s incoherent questioning of James Comey got so much attention on social media that USA Today did a whole story about it…

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mc Cain has become an absolute embarrassment to both the voters of his state Arizona) and the entire country as well.

And yes, term limits in Congress would be a very good way to go, as well as insuring that all financial issues be put in a blind trust, the moment they take the oath of office.

And raising money is a part of staying in power; the other factor, which the author of this article, apparently, does not want to address is vote manipulation by electronic means. And if you want to educate yourself as to the depth and breath of this problem, here's a website you really need to visit.

RUSSIA’S FOOD SHIPMENTS TO QATAR ARE A SOFT POWER MASTERSTROKE

The Qatari-Saudi Cold War is a geopolitical scheme cooked up by the US and the UAE, as I explained in my 21st Century Wire article about “The Machiavellian Plot to Provoke Saudi Arabia and Qatar into a “Blood Border” War”, but it’s not exactly a surprise that it happened. My September 2016 forward-looking analysis about “The GCC: The Tripartite’s Big Barter In The ‘Eurasian Balkans’” presciently forecast that a second round of Gulf tensions was bound to occur, and that the Great Power Tripartite of Russia, Iran, and Turkey could cooperate with Qatar in helping to break Riyadh’s stranglehold on the GCC. Moreover, my Geopolitica.Ru analysis from earlier this week about “Russia’s Energy Diplomacy In The Mideast: Boom Or Bust?” accurately predicted that Russia will play a role in mediating tensions between the two feuding GCC countries, which has now officially come to pass with the Qatari Foreign Minister’s visit to Moscow this weekend.

As always, Putin is a million chess moves ahead of everyone else in this geopolitical "realignment" in the Middle East.

U.S. TWITTER ERUPTS OVER NEWS THAT HILLARY CLINTON USED BLACK PRISON LABOR WHILE FIRST LADY OF ARKANSAS

Twitter users have reacted with surprise and fury over excerpts from Hillary Clinton’s 1996 book It Takes A Village. On June 6,Jeanette Jing, an activist with over 33,000 followers on Twitter who supports Clinton’s Democratic opponent Sen. Bernie Sanders, shared two pages of the work in which Clinton reminisces about the black prisoners who worked in the Arkansas governor’s mansion she shared with her husband, Bill Clinton, who led the state from 1979 to 1981 and 1983 to 1992.

“When we moved in, I was told that using prison labor at the governor’s mansion was a longstanding tradition, which kept down costs,” Clinton writes. She adds that most of the workers were convicted murderers and she became friendly with “a few of them, African-American men in their thirties who had already served 12 to 18 years of their sentences.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If, in fact, these allegations are true, welcome...to the Real Hillary Clinton!!

And talking about moral illiterates, didn't she understand that the use of prison labor in this manner is completely, morally wrong?!?

A LONDON ATTACKER’S LINKS TO UK COVERT OPERATIONS IN SYRIA AND LIBYA

Evidence suggests that one of the London attackers, Rachid Redouane, was part of the broad UK-backed covert strategy to oust Syria’s Assad, following his similar role in Libya in 2011.

It is distinctly possible that Redouane was trained by Qatar special forces in Libya in 2011, as part of a broad UK-approved covert operation. Indeed, it is possible that this training was presided over by UK and US ‘liaison’ officers.

The analysis below is based on mainstream media sources, all in the public domain.

Evidence suggests that one London attacker, Rachid Redouane, was part of the broad UK-backed covert strategy to oust Syria’s Assad, following his similar role in Libya in 2011.

The Telegraph reports that London attacker Rachid Redouane fought in the 2011 British/NATO war against Qaddafi – as did Salman Abedi, the Manchester bomber – and joined a militia which went on to send jihadist fighters to Syria. In Libya, he is believed to have fought with the Liwa al Ummah unit.[1]

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Absoflippinglutely unbelievable!!

And the British government didn't expect there to be blowback, when all was said and done?!?

Apparently, the pathological inability to think a scenario all the way through to its logical conclusion, is not only a disease of American government, but also also infects the British government intensely as well.

The Evil of Killing Children

What type of person could ever knowingly kill innocent children? If a private individual were to intentionally kill innocent children, my hunch is that most everyone would recognize that as the epitome of evil.

Trump faces growing Senate resistance on Saudi arms deal

As President Donald Trump aligns with Saudi Arabia amid a fresh dispute among Gulf nations, senators in both parties as soon as Thursday will try to block him from selling more than $500 million in offensive weapons to Riyadh.

The Senate bid to stop the Saudi arms sales — a small portion of what the White House claims will be a $110 billion package — is likely to fail. But the push to tie Trump's hands will probably find more support than a similar brushback pitch directed at President Barack Obama last year, as Democrats are far more united behind the proposal. Not only do Democrats have little reason to give Trump a win on any front, they're also stepping up their outcry over Saudi involvement in Yemen’s worsening civil war.

In "Clear Escalation", Arab Countries Release List Of Terrorists Supported By Qatar

In what commentators have dubbed a "clear escalation", moments ago Arab states including Saudi Arabia, UAE, Egypt and Bahrain, have released a list that designates 59 individuals and 12 entities in Qatar as terrorist. The complete list of those named includes Qataris, Jordanians, Egyptians, Kuwaitis, Libyans.

The four countries released the names in “light of their commitment to fighting terrorism, drying up their sources of funding, combating extremist ideology and its dissemination and working together to eradicate it and immunize communities,” according to a statement made available to Al Arabiya.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Folks, I am very concerned that, seeing how these countries are lining up to demonize Qatar (this includes the UAE; Saudi Arabia; Egypt, and Bahrain), will probably be working in concert (along with the US military) to attack it.

Right now, it doesn't feel that we are in an "if" moment, that it can, with negotiations, be remedied; it feels like we are in a "when" moment, and that moment could happen at any time.

On the Qatari side, we see Turkey and Iran siding with Qatar.

And while some of the people enumerated on this list may well be terrorists, Qatar is really getting punished for its dominance in natural gas, where it shares underground reservoirs with Iran in the North Field; the Saudis want this for themselves, as their oil reserves are beginning to tap out, which means that their economy may ultimately tank, unless they can control Qatar's natural gas.

So ultimately, this is about regime change in Doha, which will most probably mean at least an attempted regime change in Tehran.

Backing up to really see the "big picture" here, I am very much reminded of the Moriarty speech at the end of the 2nd Sherlock Homes movie, "A Game of Shadows". He makes the observation that a war is coming, and he wants a lock on both the bullets and the bandages.

We are seeing an escalating situation in Syria; a war approaching against Qatar,and potentially, against Iran (which most probably means, war with Russia).

Obama’s Bombshell Plot to Steal the 2020 Election Just Exposed (Video)

It is an open secret that gerrymandering has been used by both parties to redraw district lines in favor of their own party candidates. So far, it has been a balance with both sides doing it, effectively cancelling each other out. But now, reports have emerged of a much larger plot, one that could steal the 2020 election for the Democrats. With Barack Obama and Eric Holder reuniting once again for their roles within the National Democratic Redistricting Committee (NRDC), at the very LEAST, you can count on some shady and unethical behavior, and that’s at the very LEAST!

White House Petition to Investigate Seth Rich’s Death Gaining Steam (Video)

Despite the best efforts of the Deep State and their mainstream media cronies, the Seth Rich story will not die. Despite them trying their best to slap the conspiracy theory label on it, the facts simply do not hold up to the official narrative. An armed robbery with all his possessions intact? Coupled with the fact that Rich may have been the infamous DNC leaker, you see why people are refusing to take this at face value.

In the following video, Right Wing News notes how the Seth Rich story is gaining steam, with the latest being an official petition to the White House to appoint a special prosecutor to look into his murder. The petition needs 100,000 signatures by June 18 to receive an official response; as of this writing with 10 days to go, it has already garnered over 54,000 signatures. Sign the petition, and don’t let this story die!

Turkey scrambles for regional footing as Qatar debacle expands

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan broke his silence over the crisis engulfing his country’s closest Arab ally Qatar today, condemning the actions of the group of Gulf countries that cut off ties with the emirate over its alleged support for extremist groups and Iran. In a related move, Erdogan’s ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) has decided to fast-track bills to deploy Turkish forces in Qatar and train Qatari troops in its legislative agenda. Turkey is building a base in Qatar that will eventually host up to 10,000 troops under an accord in which Turkey pledged to defend the Gulf state.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, let me get my head around this; in one corner, we have Turkey; Iran (and with it, most probably, Russia); and Qatar; in the other corner, the UAE, Saudi Arabia, and the United States.

In looking at the facts and developments on the ground, what I am seeing is a prelude to pitting Iran against Saudi Arabia in a war, then attempting to regime-change Tehran, as the US government did in 1953, and insure that the country becomes balkanised, just as is happening in Iraq, to prevent it from having its current power and weight in the Middle East any longer.

This will, of course, make Israel very happy, because it doesn't like competing economically with Iran, and has declared it an "existential threat" to Israel's existence (which is is not: Iran hasn't started a war in over 200 years).

However, there are a couple of caveats to be considered in any such action.

First, the Iran of 2017 is not the Iran of 1953; Iranians are a very geopolitically sophisticated, tech-embracing people, who remember their history, and are determined to not allow it to be repeated.

Secondly, the large, militarily-capable gorilla, snoozing on Bosendorfer Grand in the living room...is Russia. Russian political and military leaders have a very excellent relationship with Iran, and have been very vocal about coming to its aid, militarily, should it get attacked.

Russia and Iran's growing cooperation hints at a new Middle East, March, 2017

So, a war against Iran is most probably going to mean war against Russia.

I cannot think of a more ham-fisted, pig-headed move the US/Saudi consortium could make at this time, than a war against Russia over Iran.

However, unfortunately, just because a military attack against Russia is the most ham-fisted, pig-headed move the US/Saudi consortium could make, is utterly no guarantee that they won't do it.
