Insanity : USMC Veteran Facing Life In Prison Over 1 Oz. Of Cannabis To Treat His PTSD

Unfortunately indicative of the government’s misplaced, draconian priorities, the continued federal prohibition of cannabis has created tragic and heartbreaking consequences for vets using the plant to treat PTSD — and Lewandowski is a living example of the State’s tyranny.

Obama seriously violated the 4th Amendment

A new report reveals that the government routinely violated American 4th Amendment protections under the Obama administration while snooping through overseas intercepts and only revealed its illegal actions as the previous president headed out the door.

While Donald Trump boogied with Saudi princes, Iran was voting for openness and peace

What is there to say about Donald Trump’s maiden voyage to our great and glorious ally Saudi Arabia? The awkward white-guy shuffle was danced. Steve Bannon was bodily engulfed by Saudi royals. One of those orbs from “Where in Time is Carmen Sandiego?” was fondled. And…oh yeah, also an arms deal worth $110 billion was signed, as America reasserted its default blind eye towards Saudi empowerment of terrorism in Yemen, Syria, and beyond.

The Saudis are obsessed above all with their endless cold war versus Iran, and their main goal with Trump was to renew America as an accomplice to their side. While Trump was acquiescing to their cajolery, Iran was doing something the Saudis never have: holding a presidential election. And the message that emerged once the counting was done is clear: Iranians are ready for moderation, for openness, for their country’s relations with the West—locked in deep freeze since the Islamic Revolution in 1979—to at last begin to thaw.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Iran is moving forward,politically, socially and economically; Saudi Arabia is locked into the suffocating, sclerotic death-grip of a monarchy to whom the entire notion of free elections is a "terrorist" thought.

And yet with whom did President Trump throw the US's lot in with, in the Middle East?!?

Why, with Saudi Arabia, of course, the human rights record of which makes Attila the Hun look downright compassionate by comparison.

And now, the US government has armed it it to the teeth with weapons which will ultimately be used to both complete its genocide in Yemen, and ultimately, conduct a proxy war against Iran, which may well lead to war with Russia, as Russia has promised to defend it militarily, should it be attacked.

And Saudi King Salmon, a word please; the US government can turn from friend to frenemy to enemy on a dime.

Do you remember to what happened to the US's "former friend" in the region, Iraq's Saddam Hussein, when he was going to start accepting money other than the US dollar in payment for Iraq's oil?!?

He was accused of harboring "weapons of mass destruction", when he had none, his country got invaded and occupied, and he got assassinated.

I'm just saying.....

CIA director: 'We are back in the business of stealing secrets'

CIA Director Mike Pompeo made a blunt declaration Tuesday: "We are back in the business of stealing secrets.”

The remark from Pompeo, made to a small group of reporters on Tuesday, was a tacit jab at his predecessor. Former agency director John Brennan turned heads in March of last year when he told National Public Radio that the U.S. doesn’t “steal secrets.”

“We uncover. We discover. We reveal. We obtain. We elicit. We solicit -- all of that,” Brennan said at the time.

Drug Cop Who Spent 14 Years Undercover Tells Truth About the Drug War

Yet another police officer is speaking out against the drug war, this time in the United Kingdom. Former officer Neil Woods worked as an undercover drug cop for 14 years, infiltrating some of the most violent gangs in Britain only to learn his tactics were worsening the drug epidemic. Now, he advocates ending the drug war and decriminalizing drugs as he admits his own role in fueling violence and the proliferation of narcotics.

Morrissey Rips British Politicians after Manchester Attack: ‘Petrified’ to Admit Islamic Extremism Behind Terror

Musician and songwriter Morrissey angrily excoriated British politicians following Monday night’s deadly terrorist attack at a pop music concert in Manchester, England, claiming that it is easy for politicians to say they are “unafraid” and to remain resolute while failing to address the root causes of terrorism and hiding behind their own robust security.

America’s Fukushima : If We Don’t Act Now, We May Not Be Able To Avoid The Next One

The mishandling of nuclear waste at the site and the ongoing clean-up delays make Hanford one of the riskiest places on Earth. Two whistleblowers, who were employees of companies tasked with cleaning up “the most polluted site in the western hemisphere,” say that Hanford could become America’s Fukushima.

US Killed Record Number of Civilians in Past Month of ISIS Strikes: At Least 225 Civilians in the Past Month

The US is eager to brag about their record number of airstrikes in the ISIS war, with the rate of growth in the number of strikes launched limited only by their ability to get enough weapons to drop on people. Officially, the death toll has remained trivial, albeit increasingly non-credible.

NGOs keeping track of the number of civilians the US is killing show a different story, however, with the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights putting the death toll at 225 over the last month, which by their reckoning is the most civilians the US has killed in any one month span of the ISIS war.

That’s a conservative estimate too, even though it’s likely more than 10 times what the Pentagon will admit to. Indeed, Air Wars themselves counted 230 civilians killed in a single US strike in Mosul, and they too recognize that the civilian toll is continuing to rise precipitously

Webmaster's Commentary: 

To the Pentagon and the money junkies, the civilian death toll in these countries is absolutely meaningless; it's just "collateral damage" in the process of regime changing Damascus, and insuring that Iraq's oil is only sold to parties the US wants it sold to, and is sold for US dollars.

US Intelligence: Kurdish Independence Is Inevitable

“Kurdish independence is on a trajectory,” wherein it’s not a question of whether the Kurds will form an independent state, but a question of how soon, Defense Intelligence Agency Director Gen. Vincent Stewart told lawmakers on Tuesday.

"Once ISIS is defeated in Mosul, the greatest challenge to the Iraqi government is to reconcile the differences between the Shia-dominated government, the Sunnis out west, and the Kurds up north," he said.

The Kurdish ethnic group, with populations spanning Iraq, Iran, Turkey, Armenia and Syria, includes adherents to Islam, Christianity, Yarsanism, Yazidism, Alevism and Judaism, but a majority of Kurds are Sunni Muslim. There are an estimated 30 million Kurds, considered to be one of the largest stateless groups in the world.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

No, a Kurdish state is not an "inevitability"; it is to be their "reward" for their fighting in Syria against the Syrian troops, and will involve the balkanising of areas in both Syria, and Iraq, i.e., the US government carving up the Middle East to suit their own purposes.

And I have to wonder; did Syria's Bashar al Assad and Iraq's Fuad Masum get the memo yet, that their countries are going to be carved up to accommodate an independent Kurdistan?!?

And with regard to Syria, what is Russia prepared to do to prevent this?!?

Donald of Arabia: A Disgusting Spectacle

by Justin Raimondo, May 22, 2017

Has there been a more disgusting spectacle during the four months of this presidency than the sight of Donald Trump slobbering all over the barbarous Saudi monarch and his murderous family of petty princelings? It’s enough to make any normal American retch, especially when one remembers what Trump said about them during the election:

“Saudi Arabia and many of the countries that gave vast amounts of money to the Clinton Foundation want women as slaves and to kill gays. Hillary must return all money from such countries!”

And then there was this tweet:

“Tell Saudi Arabia and others that we want (demand!) free oil for the next ten years or we will not protect their private Boeing 747s. Pay up!”

Now Trump’s son in law, Jared Kushner, is calling up Lockheed-Martin to get a discount for the Saudis, personally brokering the biggest arms deal in US history. What a difference a presidency makes!

RUSSIAN JOURNALIST: WHY DOESN'T ISIS EVER ATTACK OR THREATEN ISRAEL? ASSAD: ISRAEL SUPPORTS ALL TERRORISTS IN THE REGION.

President Assad: Not only ISIS, of course, or Daesh, not only al-Nusra; anyone, any terrorist who holds a machine gun and started killing and destroying in Syria was supported by Israel, either indirectly through the logistical support on the frontier, or sometimes by direct intervention by Israel against Syria in different areas in Syria. Why? Because Israel is our enemy, because they occupy our lands, and they look at Syria as enemy of course, and for them they think if they undermine the position of Syria and make it weaker as a whole, as society, as army, as state, that will prevent Israel from moving toward the peace, and the price of the peace is to give back the Golan Heights to Syria. So, for them, Syria will be busy with another issue now, it would be busy to talk about the Golan or the peace process, or even to do anything to get back its land.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why am I not at all surprised at Al-Assad's assessment here?!?

How to avoid the email prank that tripped Mark Carney and Jes Staley

You don’t have to be a high-tech hacker to make mischief with the personal emails of some of the most powerful people in the world, as one prankster has revealed. The joker, who goes by the Twitter handle @SINON_REBORN managed to dupe the bosses of both Barclays and the Bank of England into thinking they were chatting with their respective chairmen.

Fortunately neither Jes Staley or Mark Carney revealed any particularly sensitive information and both came out with their reputations relatively intact. The former make himself look like a kiss-ass (‘You are a unique man, Mr [John] McFarlane,’ he wrote. ‘You came to my defense today with a courage not seen in many people. How do I thank you?’) while the Bank of England governor’s gravest error was implying one of his late predecessors was an alcoholic.

It’s all good fun. But what worked for a prankster could equally work for a criminal.

DID SEVERAL DEMOCRATIC IT STAFFERS UNDER INVESTIGATION JUST FLEE TO PAKISTAN?

First a little background. Politico reported the following back in March.

Two House Democrats this week fired technology staffers linked to an ongoing criminal investigation, more than a month after the couple in question was barred from House computer networks.

Rep. Gregory Meeks (D-N.Y.) confirmed to Politico that Hina Alvi’s last day as an IT support staffer in his office was Tuesday. Her husband, Imran Awan, was working for Rep. Marcia Fudge (D-Ohio) as of Tuesday evening, but a spokeswoman for Fudge said midday Wednesday that Awan was no longer an employee.

As of Wednesday, Awan was still working as a technology adviser for Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.), although he’s been blocked from accessing the House computer system since early February.

Alvi, Awan and three other House aides, including Abid Awan and Jamal Awan, relatives of Imran Awan, and Rao Abbas, are all linked to the criminal investigation being conducted by the U.S. Capitol Police.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This...could get interesting! :-)

Apparently, Democrats, as a class, have difficulty in vetting their IT professionals.

And BTW, DNC and Secretary Clinton, where in the world is Brian Pagliano, your IT guy who has "disappeared" (either been murdered, or fled to a country with which the US has no extradition treaty), and is contempt of Congress for refusing to testify?!?

Joe Lieberman "No Longer Being Considered" For FBI Director: Report

Just days after it was reported that the frontrunner to replace James Comey as head of the FBI was career democrat Joe Lieberman, it now appears that Trump has gotten cold feet about installing a career democrat as head of the agency and according to CNN the team tasked by Trump with finding a new director for the FBI "is resetting its search" with Reuters reporting that according to CNN, Joe Lieberman is "no longer being considered for FBI director."

Key Democratic Officials Now Warning Base Not to Expect Evidence of Trump/Russia Collusion

FROM MSNBC POLITICS shows to town hall meetings across the country, the overarching issue for the Democratic Party’s base since Trump’s victory has been Russia, often suffocating attention for other issues. This fixation has persisted even though it has no chance to sink the Trump presidency unless it is proven that high levels of the Trump campaign actively colluded with the Kremlin to manipulate the outcome of the U.S. election — a claim for which absolutely no evidence has thus far been presented.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Rachel Maddow has has not only shot herself in the foot for buying into this Russophobia; she has also permanently destroyed any shred of credibility she once had with her viewers and listeners, which is the ultimate cost of spinning lies because your party lost the election.

And Ms. Maddow, a word, please.

Your favorite candidate in this last election, Hillary Clinton, has more personal and financial "baggage" than does Kim Kardashian on a photo shoot; she stole the nomination from Bernie Sanders, courtesy of the machinations of Debbie Wasserman Shultz; as a millionaire, was thoroughly and pathologically incapable of relating to her base; absolutely did not have the temperament to be President; and always reeked with the noxious odor of the "inevitability" of her candidacy leading to the White House.

The bottom line here, is that the DNC was very proud of itself for picking such a truly flawed candidate, expected that they could cram her down the throats of American voters, and cannot at all understand why she lost the election. I sincerely hope it does better next time.

And BTW, DNC, you have such a candidate for 2020 right in your site-lines, if she is not politically disposed of first for her pro-peace leanings; that lady is none other than Hawaiian Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard, for whom I have a great deal of respect.

But of course, the DNC considers her a "traitor" for having backed Bernie Sanders in the last election, and going on a privately funded trip to Syria to see what was really going on there, and her findings were absolutely NOT to the liking of those in the bowels of power in the Unhinged, Surveilled States of America.

The great American comedian Ron White has a wonderful phrase: "You can't fix stupid." And unfortunately, the DNC has been acting stupidly ever since the election, with these charges that Russia "fixed" the American election in Trump's favor, and this is going to come home to bite them, unless they take a very sang-foid look at what happened in last November, and choose to learn from their mistakes.

Manchester police hunt terrorist network who helped Salman Abedi build bomb

Police confirmed they are seeking possible accomplices of terrorist Salman Abedi because investigators believe he had help creating the bomb he used at the Manchester Arena.

RON PAUL ON THE DRUG WAR: WILL THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION OD ON AUTHORITARIANISM?

Last week Attorney General Jeff Sessions ordered federal prosecutors in drug cases to seek the maximum penalty authorized by federal mandatory minimum sentencing laws. Sessions’ order represents a setback to the progress made toward restoring compassion and common sense to the sentencing process over the past few years. Sessions’ action also guarantees that many nonviolent drug law offenders will continue spending more time in prison than murderers.

Sessions’ support for mandatory minimums is no surprise, as he has a history of fanatical devotion to the drug war. Sessions’ pro-drug war stance is at odds with the reality of the drug war’s failure. Over forty years after President Nixon declared war on drugs, the government cannot even keep drugs out of prisons!

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Part of the problem with the sclerotic, slug-like US governmental system, is that it is pathologically incapable of learning, and incorporating, the successes of other countries in dealing with issues like drugs.

The country of Portugal has been exemplary in how they handled the issue of drugs. What they did was decriminalise a small amount of drugs for personal use, but pushed counseling. And the results of this policy have been extraordinary.

Portugal: what happened after their decriminalisation of drugs, from weed to heroin

But of course, the US government cannot learn from Portugal's success.

And why?!?

Drug money moves in mysterious ways, and I am absolutely certain, cartels have had their influence to keep drugs illegal, to keep the industry's profitability high.

High conviction rates for drug users increase the money that public, and private prisons get for housing them, with generally no rehabilitation, insuring that when they get back on the street, they will re-offend.

And banks love laundering drug money, because they know no one will go to jail for it.

UBS Rap Sheet

Gangster Bankers Too Big to Fail

Awash in cash,
drug cartels rely on big banks to launder profits

So Jeff Sessions has thrown his hat in with the drug cartels, the for profit prisons, and the big banks, by embracing this position, which was utterly predictable, given the man's history.

But the war on drugs has been an utter, brutal, failure in this country; Sessions hypocritically refuses to acknowledge this, and I have to wonder just how much of his personal, financial portfolio is invested in financial institutions which do this kind of money laundering, and in private prisons.

“ISIL crisis” plays right into Zionists hands

Rahm Emanuel, President Obama’s first Chief of Staff – who also served as Obama’s Israeli Mossad handler – famously said: “You never let a serious crisis go to waste. And what I mean by that it’s an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.”

Individuals, groups, whole industries, even nations sometimes take advantage of crises and catastrophes. Big bankers, for example, love war because it forces governments to borrow vast sums of money at compound interest. Arms manufacturers also make huge profits. And the big government always gets bigger during wartime as it confiscates people’s wealth and scales back their rights.

THE MANCHESTER ATTACK - A BLOWBACK FROM BRITAIN'S TERROR SUPPORT IN LIBYA, SYRIA AND BEYOND

It was eastern Libya from where in March 2011 a tribal insurrection to overthrow the Libyan government was initiated. Weapons were flown in from Qatar and handed out to Jihadists. British special forces were on the ground to help the takfiris of the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG) in their attacks towards the Libyan capital in western Libya. The leader of the eastern front was Abdelhakim Belhadj, a long time al-Qaeda member, After Ghaddafi was overthrown with British help al-Qaeda's flag went up over the court house of the eastern Libyan city of Benghazi.

The Islamic State, a splinter part of al-Qaeda, has claimed responsibility for the attack in Manchester. The LIFG was aligned with al-Qaeda.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That the governments of the US and UK believe, as a general article of geopolitical faith, that the invasions; occupations; and expropriations of the resources of other countries, to which they, and their corporate minions, have utterly no moral right, will not ultimately result in horrific actions like this bombing, demonstrates that they are indulging in "magical thinking".

This form of "magical thinking", in the minds of those in the bowels of power in the "deep state" of both the US and UK governments, means that they believe there will be utterly no consequences for these horrific wars for resources upon which both countries have staked their economic futures.

And you have to understand that, because of the way those in power think, when these barbaric acts happen, against totally innocent civilians, it is simply the cost of doing business; people...are irrelevant, and the US/UK Deep States control what is going on in these countries, and what their people want, peace and prosperity, doesn't matter at all.

The "price" of acts like these, is perfectly acceptable to the leadership in both countries, if the acts are not, in fact, false flags, engineered to persuade citizens to give up what little liberties they have left, and surrender them to the surveillance state to make sure they are "safe".

But I would like to politely point out that all the surveillance in the UK did not prevent this horrific bombing; food for thought for my British cousins.

Money...is the only thing that matters to them.

They say even if Seth Rich turns out to be the DNC leaker, it will not help Trump’s issue of Russian collusion. Of course, it won’t as there has to be something going all the time to distract President Trump from doing the job he was elected to do.

The above headline is a metaphor. I am writing to you today about what I see as the political assassination of President Donald J. Trump.

The New World Order is a global orchestra where every instrument has a precise pitch. If just one piece is not playing in tune for the conductor, the concert is ruined. Former President Barack Obama was never off key. America under Trump’s presidency has shown a propensity to play to a separate beat.

No doubt about it.The coup d’etat has been successful.

The American system of representative government has been overthrown by a profit-driven, militaristic corporate state bent on total control and global domination through the imposition of martial law here at home and by fomenting wars abroad.

When in doubt, follow the money trail.

Enter Donald Trump, the candidate who swore to drain the swamp in Washington DC.

Instead of putting an end to the corruption, however, Trump has paved the way for lobbyists, corporations, the military industrial complex, and the Deep State to feast on the carcass of the dying American republic.

He said: “They are suffering from the same thing we suffer from here, two things: Information overload and the use of surveillance to investigate and prosecute rather than to prevent.

“Before all this surveillance, the police were more active in the community and if some crackpot was contemplating this they would have heard of it, gotten a whiff of it or had some suspicion about it.

“But now when they spend more time waiting for surveillance tapes and then they don’t even look at the tapes until they need to, this kind of stuff can happen.”

Manchester terror bomb will have been built locally, reveals former FBI agent

Retired FBI agent Bobby Chacon said the device which exploded at the Manchester Arena would not have travelled “very far” before it was set off.

Speaking on Fox News, the former member of FBI joint terror task force said intercepted communications, known as “chatter” within anti-terrorism intelligence, would be monitored to help find the location of where the bomb was built.

He said: “Already what’s happening is the analysts are looking at any chatter that may have come in that seems like it was aimed at an attack on a venue like this, or a sporting event, or a concert.

“Where the chatter just didn’t identify the target enough for us to know. But now we know what happened, so we can go back and look at some of that chatter and see if it makes sense, that it was talking about this particular event.

It Is Time To Put The ‘Limited’ Back In Limited Government – And Abolishing The EPA Is A Good Place To Start

The constitutional republic that our founders intended to create has become a monster, and it is time to tame that monster and restore the federal government to its proper size and scope. The left loves big government, because it allows them to impose their progressive vision of how the world should work on all the rest of us. This is why so many control freaks are drawn to liberal politics like moths to a flame. Power and control are very addicting drugs, and those that crave these things on the left are never satisfied. That is one of the reasons why the federal government just keeps getting bigger and bigger and bigger. If our constitutional republic is going to survive, we have got to start putting the “limited” back in limited government.

U.S. $360b in deals. Now they want Trump to rescind 9/11 lawsuit law.

RIYADH, SAUDI ARABIA

President Donald Trump struck a series of deals with Saudi Arabia on his two-day visit but the kingdom is still anxiously waiting for him to deliver on something else: the repeal of a contentious 2016 law that allows relatives of 9/11 victims to sue the kingdom for their deaths.

Saudi officials have been quietly lobbying the administration and Congress to overturn the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act, which led more than 800 families to file suit in New York in March.

He is serving the nation better than any – any – predecessor before him. Unlike Kennedy, Trump is not quietly and legally wrangling with the deep state from within. He is driving it to madness, into accidental tactical exposure, into revealing its logistics, strategies and generals, and its desperation. This is all we ever asked for, and all we need.

All of Trump’s predecessors – Lyndon Johnson, Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama – have refused to address the ugly reality and/or covered up the attack on the Liberty.

Xi asked Trump for ‘100 days’ to deal with North Korea problem

Chinese President Xi Jinping asked U.S. President Donald Trump for a 100-day grace period to deal with North Korea’s military provocations during their meeting in early April, according to several U.S. and Japanese sources.

At their talks in Florida, Trump asked Xi to strengthen economic sanctions against Pyongyang over its repeated ballistic missile and nuclear tests. China accounts for about 90 percent of North Korea’s foreign trade.

The U.S. president said that if Beijing did not cooperate, Washington was prepared to implement new sanctions against Chinese companies that have business dealings with North Korea, including several financial institutions, according to the sources.

Xi may have asked for the grace period to prevent such U.S. sanctions from making it difficult for the targeted Chinese companies to continue their business transactions with U.S. financial institutions and companies.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF, in fact, this story is true, (and please note that this is not sourced), President Xi basically has until the end of June to turn Kim Jung Un's thinking around, when it comes to its nuclear weapons program.

The successful launching of a medium range missile last weekend does not seem to indicate that China has had an effect yet on moderating North Korea's missile program to date.

IF, in fact, these reports are true, I am hoping and praying that Chinese President Xi will "up his game" before the end of next month; otherwise, all hell could potentially break loose here, particularly if Kim Jung Un decides the "timing is right" to test a nuclear weapon

THE PRICE OF HELLFIRE MISSILES: EVERYTHING AMERICANS COULD BUY AT THE COST OF A DRONE STRIKE

As Donald Trump’s plan to Make America Great Again unfolds, there is at least one thing he will not need to worry about because the United States is already greatest at it — spending the most money to kill people. With US defense spending being more than the next 7 countries combined, none of our competitors will be catching up to us anytime soon. In this case, the greatness of the US is beyond question and it comes at a cost — but that is the price we pay for our freedom. And no one can put a price on freedom. But have any of you wondered — if you could put a price on freedom — what its cost would be? Or, in other words — how great exactly is the price of things like Hellfire missiles?

THE COSTS OF FREEDOM:
WHAT ELSE CAN WE BUY AT THE PRICE OF A HELLFIRE MISSILE?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is amazing to me that Americans vote, and continue to vote, but absolutely nothing changes; the American Deep State's war agenda continues apace, with more military interventions through which foreign resources are expropriated, to which this country and its corporate minions have utterly no moral right; regimes are toppled and changed to insure that they are Western-centric (at least, nominally); those resources are only sold in US dollars; and countries get balkanized, and left in chaos and ruins, in order to insure that they will never again be an "existential threat" to the United States, militarily or economically.

If you want want an example of this, writ large, just please remember what happened to Libya's Qaddafi, when he was about to announce that his country's oil was going to be sold in a national Libyan currency, the gold dinar, rather than US dollars; his country got invaded, and he got assassinated.

No one wants to talk about this, but at this point in this country's history, it appears that citizens of this country are absolutely not in any degree of control over it, whatsoever.

Yes, we have these elaborate, Kabuki-drama style national, and state, elections; but at the end of the day, it is the corporations which buy candidates to craft legislation to their liking, and the Deep American State, which are in control.

The country I thought I knew, no longer exists, outside of a complete fantasy construct; and I feel like an alien in my own land.

My eyes wide open to the brutal reality I see, where the most fragile in our society are simply abandoned, and am anticipating a very terrifying, martial future in the days and years to come.

LIBYA - MASSACRE AT BRAK AL-SHATTI MAY TRIGGER LARGER CIVIL WAR

Nobody has their eye on Libya with all "western" media preoccupied with DC machinations, Russiaphobia and the first overseas trip of President Trump.

What about the implosion we are on the brink of seeing in Libya following the murder of all LNA Air Force personnel at the Brak al-Shati AFB?

The death toll in the attack of a Libyan National Army airbase, in south Libya, rose to over 140, a spokesman for Field Marshall Khalifa Haftar said on Sunday.

Remarkably it was militia (called 'the third force') of the UN unelected Government of National Accord (GNA) under Faez Serraj that attacked and executed the unarmed men in the Brak al-Shati Air base. There were allegedly foreigners among the attackers possibly aligned with al-Qaeda.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would like to politely remind our readers that this descent into madness and civil war in Libya was orchestrated by none other than Hillary Clinton, in her role as Secretary of State, when she was cheerleading for Qaddafi's ouster., due to Qaddafi's plan to start selling Libya's oil for a gold-backed currency, the gold dinar, instead of the US dollar.

Qaddafi's gold money plan would have devastated the dollar

You need to understand that to people who think as Clinton and Obama do, an entire genocide of a people is perfectly morally comfortable, as long as it prevents the destabilisation of US currency; so every single death resulting from Qaddafi's assassination can be laid squarely at their feet, like a huge bouquet of blood-drenched roses.

This is precisely what were are seeing playing out in Libya today.

‘NOT A SINGLE HINT OF A PROTESTER’: US COMMERCE SEC PRAISES SAUDI FOR BEHEADING OPPOSITION

Putting a fine point on the spin that President Donald Trump’s trip to the Middle East has been a glowing, peace-dealing success, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross praised the fact that there were no protesters in Saudi Arabia—a nation where political dissonance is punishable by death.

Speaking to CNBC on Monday, Ross, who accompanied Trump on the weekend trip to Riyadh, said he found it “fascinating” that he did not see “a single hint of a protester anywhere there during the whole time we were there. Not one guy with a bad placard.”

US AIRSTRIKES IN SYRIA NOW KILLING MORE CIVILIANS THAN ASSAD’S AIR FORCE

With a mosque’s minaret in the foreground, a United States Air Force cargo plane takes off from the Incirlik Air Base in southern Turkey, where coalition forces launch attacks inside of Syria, July 30, 2015.

The number of civilians killed in air strikes by the US-led coalition in Syria over the past month was the highest monthly toll since it began its campaign against the Islamic State (IS) group in 2014, a monitoring organization said on Tuesday.

The UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said that at least 225 civilians including 44 children and 36 women had been killed in the month between 23 April and 23 May.

At least 122 IS militants and fighters loyal to the Syrian government were also killed, the Observatory said.

“The past month of operations is the highest civilian toll since the coalition began bombing Syria,” Observatory head Rami Abdel Rahman told the AFP news agency.

“There has been a very big escalation.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Since this is coming from a one-man band ( the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, whose owner hasn't been in Syria for the last 13 years), I suspect that these numbers are quite conservative, compared with the real carnage the US-based Coalition has created in Syria.

Trump's Budget Will Slash $1.7 Trillion In Entitlements, Cut Food Stamps By 25%

Here are some of the highlights from the latest batch of trial balloons:

The budget will slash $1.7 trillion in spending on entitlement programs, according to Bloomberg.
Trump’s budget will include a massive nearly $200 billion cut to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, the modern version of food stamps, over the next 10 years – what amounts to a 25% reduction, according to The Washington Post.
The food stamp cuts are part of a broader $274 billion welfare-reform effort, according to a report by The Associated Press.
The budget calls for about $800 billion in cuts to Medicaid for fiscal year 2018, WaPo reported.
The budget also calls for $2.6 billion in border security spending, $1.6 billion of which will be earmarked for Trump’s proposed wall along the U.S.’s southern border.

Trump repeats Iran and Syria lies for "regime change" in speeches to Saud Family (who claim to own so-called 'Saudi' Arabia) and Israel. This is ‘leadership’ until .01% arrests for OBVIOUS illegal Wars of Aggression of rogue state empire

1. Accept dicts of lying .01% “leaders” for OBVIOUS illegal Wars of Aggression and Crimes Against Humanity that annually kill millions, harm billions, and loot trillions.
2. Demand .01% arrests for these obvious crimes.

President Trump addressed the Saud family and associated vassal states on Sunday in a literal fire and brimstone speech that repeated criminal threats on Iran and Syria:

"It (Iran) is a government that speaks openly of mass murder, vowing the destruction of Israel, death to America, and ruin for many leaders and nations in this room.

Among Iran’s most tragic and destabilizing interventions have been in Syria. Bolstered by Iran, Assad has committed unspeakable crimes, and the United States has taken firm action in response to the use of banned chemical weapons by the Assad Regime—launching 59 tomahawk missiles at the Syrian air base from where that murderous attack originated."

North Korea's Latest Missile Test Brings Us One Step Closer To WWIII (Here's How We Got Here)

As time goes on, North Korea’s nuclear program is making war with the United States more and more likely. As SHTFplan.com's Daniel Lang details, we’re on a terrible path that no one knows how to escape from.

On the one hand, North Korea is clearly led by an unhinged and tyrannical government that can’t be trusted with nuclear weapons. So you can understand why the US is so determined to stop their progress with these weapons. But at the same time, those nuclear weapons could one day guarantee that the leaders of North Korea will remain in power for a long time. Those weapons would make any potential aggressor think twice about trying to invade the bellicose nation, so there’s no way that North Korea is going to abandon its nuclear program.

Seth Rich Plot Thickens: "DC Insider" Speaks Of "Complete Panic" At Highest Levels Of DNC

Last week, Fox News dropped a bombshell report officially confirming, via anonymous FBI sources, what many had suspected for quite some time, that murdered DNC staffer Seth Rich was the WikiLeaks source for leaks which proved that the DNC was intentionally undermining the campaign of Bernie Sanders. In addition to exposing the corruption of the DNC, the leaks cost Debbie Wasserman Shcultz her job as Chairwoman.

Of course, if it's true that WikiLeaks' emails came from a DNC insider it would end the "Russian hacking" narrative that has been perpetuated by Democrats and the mainstream media for the past several months. Moreover, it would corroborate the one confirmation that Julian Assange has offered regarding his source, namely that it was "not a state actor."

Meanwhile, the plot thickened a little more over the weekend when Kim Dotcom confirmed via Twitter that he was working with Seth Rich to get leaked emails to WikiLeaks.

The Shi’ite fighters from Iraq have controversially been bombed by the US Air Force on two separate occasions; this is explained by their blitz offensive targeted an area controlled by US vetted rebels.

In the weeks to come, the SAA – heavily assisted by foreign fighters – hopes to capture the Al-Tanf border crossing. If successful, land trade between Damascus and Baghdad will resume for the first time in years.

With more reinforcements arriving on the M2 highway frontier, pro-government forces have now advanced within 30 kilometers of the Al-Tanf border crossing.

Meanwhile, a unit of Norwegian special forces entered the Al-Tanf region to reinforce US and British troops. However, with the SAA and Iraqi volunteers fixated on retaking the border, coalition forces may be forced to abort mission.

Trump and “Regime Change”: ‘We Will Do Whatever is Necessary’ to ‘Fix’ Venezuela

US President Donald Trump said Thursday he would work with Colombia to “fix” Venezuela, as he slapped Caracas with new sanctions.

The sanctions targeted Venezuela’s chief judge and seven other members of Venezuela’s Supreme Court (TSJ). The sanctions were in retaliation to a controversial TSJ ruling that effectively granted the court with the power to pass legislation without parliamentary approval. The ruling was quickly reversed, but kicked off a wave of opposition violence that has so far left 54 people dead.

The announcement of the new sanctions came after Trump held a joint press conference with Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos. During the conference, the US leader claimed the world hasn’t seen any political crisis as bad as Venezuela’s in “decades”.

“People don’t have enough to eat. There’s great violence. We will do whatever is necessary … to help with fixing that,” he said.
