Rob Reiner’s Role In the Russia Collusion Smear

As Bonchie covered yesterday, Glenn Simpson and Christopher Steele — they of the now almost-totally discredited Steele dossier — have been working for some time to continue pushing Russia collusion stories to the press and Capitol Hill staffers through the Orwellian-named Democracy Integrity Project (TDIP).

One of those backers is legitimately a household name (or, at least, was a household name): Rob Reiner, Meathead himself. From the RCI piece:

The list of victims of the Christchurch massacre has become shorter, after it was found that one of the women on it is alive. The error will have no impact on the court process, police stressed.

The woman, whose identity was not disclosed, is merely described as “connected” to the Friday attack on the mosques.

Trump Tweet on British Opens Spring Offensive Against the Coup

March 20, 2019 - It has become entirely clear over the past 24 hours that the President and his defenders are on an all out offensive ahead of the release of the Mueller report, which many state is coming very soon. The President opened this campaign by attacking John McCain as part of the Russiagate fraud against him and went on to attack the British instigators and sustainers of the coup. On March 18, the President retweeted a tweet by William Craddick of Disobedient Media. Disobedient Media is one of the few outfits other than LaRouchePAC, and the Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity, with the guts to question the foundational premise of the coup, that the Russians hacked the DNC and Clinton Campaign Chair John Podesta. Craddick had tweeted, "Russiagate was designed in part to help the UK counter Russian influence by baiting the United States into taking a hard line against them. Leaves us all with a more dangerous world as a consequence.

Iraqi Parliament Prepares to Evict US Troops

US military's presence in Iraq falling out of favor across several political blocs.

In the wake of the ISIS War in Iraq, Pentagon officials will tell you what they’ve been saying all along, that America’s intention is to stay in Iraq, and that there is no consideration being given to leaving. It’s not clear the US has spoken to the Iraqi government about this, however.

While many Iraqis accepted the offer of help in the more desperate moments of the ISIS War, the US military has quickly worn out its welcome. Across a number of major political blocs in Iraq, there is growing consensus that the US, and indeed all foreign military forces, need to go.

This has been brewing for months. The Iraqis saw Trump’s visit to Iraq, during which he didn’t meet the Iraqi PM, as a sign of disrespect. That the Pentagon keeps insisting they’re staying in Iraq, without asking the Iraqis, only adds to the sense that the US isn’t really an invited guest in any real sense.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

OK, folks, it appears that the US President and Military are both suffering from an acute, collective case of SMD (selective memory disorder), about the one guy who got the US military out of Iraq the first time, and now is one of the most powerful people in Iraq who holds no governmental office; Muktada Al Sadr.

Let's take a gentle WRH ride in our way-back machine to last year, and the following article, describing the win of his coalition in the Iraqi parliament last year:

Muqtada al Sadr's win in Iraq, is dredging up tough memories for US soldiers

Please remember; he was the official head of the Mahdi Army, which fought the US military tooth and nail, and then, in 2017 this was disbanded: Iraq disbands what used to be known as the "Mahdi Army

Mr. President, I am strongly cautioning you (not that you appear to be listening, but ... God loves His optimists) on this issue, to show the Iraqi government, and its military, just a small bit of respect, and I ask this for the following reasons.

Although the Mahdi Army has been officially disbanded, please don't bet on this Imam's NOT being capable of"pulling the band back together", if he believes, for one second, that the US government wants to occupy Iraq forever, which, it appears, is really the goal, to control who gets Iraq's oil, and in what currency it will be sold.

Were I a betting woman, I would not bet against him doing this, sir; and he and his people know every inch of the country. And if he does this, how are you going to respond?!? With a second invasion of Iraq, let's say, Iraq 2.0- the "golden cut"?!?

EXCLUSIVE: Mounted police charging drunken teens, brawls on the sand, the scent of drugs in the air and sex in public: Spring Break is on as tens of thousands descend on beaches for debauchery

And this was last year.

But while a slice of the estimated $1 billion that Spring Break is thought to be worth to the US economy as a whole is welcome, the party comes at a price for police budgets and city residents.

Last year's revelry resulted in a 72 percent increase in police callouts to the beach compared to 2015 – with 131 911-calls during the month of March and 47 arrests.

On Friday alone, DailyMail.com witnessed eight incidents in which kids were hauled off the beach or cited for drug and alcohol possession within the space of 30 minutes.

Earlier, a mounted police unit was seen charging into the crowd after an empty can was thrown at one of the horses.

Another drunken boy was told 'want to go to jail?' after he snuck up on a police horse and touched its backside for a dare.

Crashed jets reportedly lacked key safety features because Boeing charged extra for them

Boeing jets in Ethiopia and Indonesia lacked two safety features in their cockpits because the company charged extra to install them.

It’s time for US to fully recognize Israel’s ‘sovereignty’ over disputed Golan Heights – Trump

He is just another Neocon now! Disgusting!

US President Donald Trump has said that the time has come for the United States to "fully recognize" Israel's sovereignty over the disputed Golan Heights, seized from Syria during the Six-Day War in 1967.
In a tweet on Thursday, Trump said the Golan Heights are "of critical strategic and security importance to the State of Israel" and to "regional security." His decision will be seen as a diplomatic coup for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Nine Years After Obama Snub, Trump Rolls Out Red Carpet for Netanyahu

President Donald J. Trump will host Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at the White House next week, displaying a significant shift in policy from President Obama.

Netanyahu will join Trump for a working meeting on March 25 during which they will “discuss their countries’ shared interests and actions in the Middle East,” according to the White House press release Wednesday. The U.S. President will then host Netanyahu at a dinner on March 26. This will be Netanyahu’s third visit to the Trump White House.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Every time Prime Minister Netanyahu uses his "frequent flyer miles" to get to DC, I get nervous, because, most usually, that means yet another misguided military intervention into a country to which the US military was not invited, like Syria, for example; and trust me, the US is not thinking of leaving there anytime soon, be the troop compliment at 400, or 1,000.

I don't know if any of our readers saw this on Faux TV, but the lower crawl indicated the Trump had tweeted that the Golan Heights should be considered as Israeli territory, possibly giving Netanyahu a "US-Generated lift" before ISraeli elections, which happen 9 April this year.

It was also yet another way to stick a finger in the eye of the Syrian government, the Syrian people, and Bashar Al-Assad, simultaneously, as well.

AS RUSSIA COLLUSION FADES, UKRAINIAN PLOT TO HELP CLINTON EMERGES

After nearly three years and millions of tax dollars, the Trump-Russia collusion probe is about to be resolved. Emerging in its place is newly unearthed evidence suggesting another foreign effort to influence the 2016 election — this time, in favor of the Democrats.

Ukraine’s top prosecutor divulged in an interview aired Wednesday on Hill.TV that he has opened an investigation into whether his country’s law enforcement apparatus intentionally leaked financial records during the 2016 U.S. presidential campaign about then-Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort in an effort to sway the election in favor of Hillary Clinton.

Ukraine Prosecutor General Yurii Lutsenko’s probe was prompted by a Ukrainian parliamentarian's release of a tape recording purporting to quote a top law enforcement official as saying his agency leaked the Manafort financial records to help Clinton's campaign.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Et Tu, Hillary?!?

One has to love reeking stench of hypocrisy on both sides of the aisle; and NO, it doesn't smell like "teen spirit". It frankly smells more like industrial strength fertilizer.

BETO O’ROURKE SLAMS BENJAMIN NETANYAHU, SAYING ISRAEL HAS “OPENLY SIDED WITH RACISTS”

Beto O’Rourke denied on Tuesday that donations from supporters of Israel had influenced his approach to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and denounced Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in stark terms, saying that Israel’s leader had “openly sided with racists.”

Beto taking the gloves off against Bibi… pic.twitter.com/QJascMyILA

— Jacob Kornbluh ? (@jacobkornbluh) March 20, 2019

As the Texas Tribune correspondent Patrick Svitek reported, the comments came during an event at Keene State College in New Hampshire, after O’Rourke was asked about rumors that he had taken “pro-Israel lobbyist money” during his failed Senate run in 2018.

O’Rourke explained that, in fact, he had taken no money from political action committees in that race — although J Street, a pro-Israel lobbying group that aids candidates who favor a two-state solution and oppose the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement, helped solicit $170,000 in individuals donations to his campaign.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Beto, you cannot have it both ways.

And after this major public criticism of Israel, Beto's geopolitical career may well be close to over; AIPAC will insure that he gets eaten alive, well before the Democratic nominee is "chosen" (most probably by the party, but not by the people.)

Trump Didn't Call Neo-Nazis 'Fine People.' Here's Proof

News anchors and pundits have repeated lies about Donald Trump and race so often that some of these narratives seem true, even to Americans who embrace the fruits of the president’s policies. The most pernicious and pervasive of these lies is the “Charlottesville Hoax,” the fake-news fabrication that he described the neo-Nazis who rallied in Charlottesville, Va., in August 2017 as “fine people.”

ARMORED POLICE RIOT SQUADS WILL NOW PATROL MIAMI BEACH SPRING BREAK CROWDS

Tension between South Beach spring breakers and older, whiter, richer, and stodgier residents has been leading up to this moment for years.

But yesterday's revelation was still shocking. Miami Beach officials announced that for the rest of spring break, 25-member teams of police in riot gear will patrol Ocean Drive and the beaches. And the city will park police vans, ATVs, and barricades on the beach to chuck noncompliant visitors into paddy wagons and cart them off to jail.

After an emergency commission meeting yesterday, police spokesperson Ernesto Rodriguez confirmed roving bands of cops will be "wearing protective gear, helmets, and will be equipped with shields." He added police vans will be parked "on the sand" to rapidly detain misbehaving revelers. The news was disclosed midway through a Miami Herald article about spring break.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This could possibly create riot situations, which would be horrifically dangerous for these kids, who would have no way out to make it to safety.

AFTER BLOCKING ZERO HEDGE AND OTHERS, NZ TELCOS DEMAND BIG-TECH CENSORSHIP SURGE TO “PROTECT CONSUMERS”

People are emailing me about these bans.

I just now browsed (on a remote machine under my control) ZeroHedge, Gab and Dissenter without any problems on Spark, the largest ISP in NZ. Also, my small, regional ISP has not blocked any of these sites.

Whatever is happening with regard to sites being blocked in NZ, it’s definitely not consistent for everyone here.

Since I’m not experiencing any bans, I can’t say how to bypass this for sure, however, it might be as simple as changing your DNS settings to use any of several public DNS services. I recommend CloudFlare’s public DNS.

If you’re more technically adept, or if your ISP is using a transparent DNS proxy and won’t let you use an alternate DNS, you might want to check out DNSCrypt.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

To the New Zealand and other potential censors; I have utterly no need to be "protected", and will ultimately find a away to watch what I want to, thank you very much.

I am a logical human, who does not get swayed, or influenced by anything other than facts.

Captain of doomed Ethiopian airliner had ZERO hours of 737 MAX 8 simulator training – report

Ethiopian Airlines was one of the few companies that actually got their hands on the Boeing 737 MAX 8 simulator but the captain flying the crashed plane failed to do any training on it, a recent report suggests.

The Ethiopian carrier set up a MAX 8 flight simulator in January, two months before the crash, but the captain of the doomed aircraft never used it, the New York Times wrote on Wednesday, citing people close to the airline.

Guaido's Chief Of Staff Detained By Venezuelan Intelligence In Pre-Dawn Raid

Two days after Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaido's "government-in-waiting" forcibly took possession of three diplomatic facilities in the United States with the blessing of Washington, and following what many observers speculate are a series of US aggressive maneuvers paving the way for military intervention, Maduro's security forces have begun arresting members of Guaido's staff.

According to Reuters Venezuelan intelligence agents have arrested and detained Guaido's own chief of staff, Roberto Marrero, as well as opposition legislator Sergio Vergara.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

President Trump, a word of observation; when one hires the geopolitical and military equivalent of the Keystone cops, what one gets at the end of the day... is "Keystone Cop results"; that is everything you didn't want from such an intervention, and nothing you do.

It appears that everything that could have gone wrong with your point man in Venezuela has, and is about continue to go wrong henceforward.

Let me ask; is the US State Department still creating foreign policy by throwing darts at a dart board, in some dank basement no one in the bowels of DC wants to visit, ever?!?

Perhaps, sir, it just might be time to change that policy, to something which one could at least, on the outside, be characterized as "cohesive, moral, and prudent"?!?

Because, Mr. President, this is precisely the polar opposite of how these numb-brain actions of Guido and his goons, appear to both the Venezuelan officials, and the rest of the world.

IF any of this is getting livestreamed to Moscow, Putin is laughing his head off, amazed at the level of stupidity and arrogance these "Guidoistas" have demonstrated; and of course, these are the guys the White House is backing!!

Mr. President, it appears that US foreign policy in Venezuela has resulted, so far, in an abominable epic fail; time to cut your losses (which you used to know how to do, before you became the President), and leave.

After Multiple Reports About New Zealanders Turning In Guns, Guess How Many Actually Did It? 

Following reports that a flood of New Zealand gun owners have been voluntarily surrending their firearms in the wake of last Friday's Christchurch mosque attack that left 50 dead, the numbers are in on how many Kiwis actually handed over their weapons.

Out of an estimated 1.2 million registered guns, New Zealand police report that as of Tuesday night, 37 firearms have been surrendered nationwide, according to BuzzFeed.

No accounting was provided of how many people owned those guns, the types of firearms, or where they were surrendered.

Facebook "Explains" Why It Failed To Remove Christchurch Shooter's Gruesome Livestream

Though Facebook's AI-powered censors managed to "mistakenly" flag Zero Hedge as a repeat violator of the social network's "community standards", when it comes to livestreamed videos depicting horrific and extreme violence, the company is still working out some kinks in its ability to immediately identify and remove livestreams depicting horrific acts of terror and violence like the video published Friday by the Christchurch Shooter.

In a blog post mea culpa published Thursday, Facebook's VP of Integrity Guy Rosen explained why the company failed to immediately remove the horrifying livestream of the attacks that the shooter, a 28-year-old Australian who also published a manifesto laying out his violent, islamophobic ideology, posted to Facebook Live, and which was viewed 4,000 times before being taken down.

Facebook even HAS a "VP of Integrity"??!?

Amazon Goes After Google, Facebook With Mobile Ad Launch

In its quest for global, and galactic monopolistic domination, Amazon had focused mostly on legacy businesses with low margins which had little operational leverage, high debt and were losing market share to the online retail giant; one thing the world's richest man refused to do was to aggressively go after his online tech giant peers.

Until now.

Doomed Boeing 737s Lacked 'Optional Safety Features'; Ethiopian Air Captain Skipped Training

The two doomed Boeing 737s which crashed under similar conditions lacked optional safety features that the aircraft manufacturer will now make standard, according to the New York Times.

For Boeing and other aircraft manufacturers, the practice of charging to upgrade a standard plane can be lucrative. Top airlines around the world must pay handsomely to have the jets they order fitted with customized add-ons.

Sometimes these optional features involve aesthetics or comfort, like premium seating, fancy lighting or extra bathrooms. But other features involve communication, navigation or safety systems, and are more fundamental to the plane’s operations.

Many airlines, especially low-cost carriers like Indonesia’s Lion Air, have opted not to buy them — and regulators don’t require them. -New York Times

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Safety training should have been obligatory and mandatory; Lion Air and Boeing are both equally at fault, should this be proven true.

This may wipe Boeing off the map, economically, ini the very near term.

Gun licensing procedures not followed for Christchurch mosques attack accused - ex arms control officer

A former head of gun licensing claims the man charged with the Christchurch mosque shootings wasn't interviewed in his home and his references came from online chatroom acquaintances.

Guns and gun ownership have dominated discussion since 50 people were killed and another 50 injured at two Christchurch mosques last Friday - one of the big questions being, "How did this happen?"

One ex-cop and arms control officer, Joe Green, says he's got a source alleging gun licensing procedures weren't properly followed.

"I would sooner not disclose exactly who that person is, but who I think is a highly reliable informant," Mr Green told 1 NEWS,

The informant's damning information claims the alleged gunman's application wasn't lodged in Dunedin where he lived, but filed in Waikato.

Due to Math ‘Error’ Manafort Owes Even More Money in Restitution, But He’s Not Signing Off On it

Former Trump 2016 campaign chair Paul Manafort has a bit more to pay back in official restitution dollars–but not really through any fault of his own. The problem, rather, for Manafort is an “arithmetical error” made by the office of special counsel Robert Mueller.
