ISRAEL: AMERICA’S MAD DOG IN SYRIA

Israel has played an increasingly provocative role in the destructive conflict unfolding within and along Syria’s borders since 2011. To many observers, it appears Israeli policy borders between opportunistic and unilateral aggression. In reality, Israel’s role in the Syrian conflict fits a much larger and long-term pattern with Anglo-American plans not only for Syria but for the entire region.

A more recent row between Israel and Syria was the reported incursion of Israeli warplanes into Syrian airspace, including attacks near the eastern Syrian city of Palmyra. Palmyra hosts an ongoing battle between Syrian forces and the self-proclaimed “Islamic State” (ISIS) terrorist organization. Israeli airstrikes against Syrian forces – then – would have facilitated ISIS operations in the region.

ISRAEL IS A STATE SPONSOR OF TERROR, NOT A CHAMPION AGAINST IT

Webmaster's Commentary: 

From its very inception, Israel has been a rogue nation, driven by its own mythology of achieving its territorial claims to all the lands between the Nile and the Euphrates (Biblical Israel)

Let's look at a map, to see what those claims actually entail;

Biblical Israel, from the Nile to the Euphrates

As you can see, this alleged "promised land" includes bits of Iraq; Egypt; Syria; Saudi Arabia, Jordan; and Lebanon.

The reason that the Israeli government refuses to define its borders is that its religious right believes that those borders extend into these countries, the governments of which should just roll over and play dead, enabling the IDF to claim bits of these countries for "eretz Israel" (Greater Israel)

The problem for the Israeli government is that this rolling over and playing dead, to enable this annexation, just hasn't happened yet. And because of that, in the minds of those in the Knesset in Tel Aviv, that makes Syria a prime target for destabilization and regime change.

FIVE CREEPY THINGS YOUR ISP COULD DO IF CONGRESS REPEALS THE FCC’S PRIVACY PROTECTIONS

Why are we so worried about Congress repealing the FCC’s privacy rules for ISPs? Because we’ve seen ISPs do some disturbing things in the past to invade their users’ privacy. Here are five examples of creepy practices that could make a resurgence if we don’t stop Congress now.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The examples of companies which have done this before are highly unsettling.

Nunes Must Ask FBI's Comey About Montgomery Mass Surveillance Case

Montgomery left the NSA and CIA with 47 hard drives and over 600 million pages of information, much of which is classified, and sought to come forward legally as a whistleblower to appropriate government entities, including congressional intelligence committees, to expose that the spy agencies were engaged for years in systematic illegal surveillance on prominent Americans, including the chief justice of the Supreme Court, other justices, 156 judges, prominent businessmen such as Donald Trump, and even yours truly. Working side by side with Obama's former Director of National Intelligence (DIA), James Clapper, and Obama's former Director of the CIA, John Brennan, Montgomery witnessed “up close and personal” this “Orwellian Big Brother” intrusion on privacy, likely for potential coercion, blackmail or other nefarious purposes.

Buried in the STARGATE section of the CREST release is a letter from Congressman Charlie Rose, the Chairman of the Subcommittee on Evaluation, regarding the Intelligence Community’s psychic program. Although short, the letter highlights a concern that was to be repeated by many outside of government for decades - that the program was part of CIA “mind control” activities, where in some cases “the rights of individuals were violated.”

Russia Exposes Far-Left’s Lunacy and Their Diabolical Scheme to Frame Trump (Video)

In an era of diminished attention spans, sound bites, and click bait, it is with little surprise that innocuous, boring, and routine information can be twisted and spun to appear as more than it actually is. Out of context exaggerations basically, and that’s exactly the basis for the whole Russian conspiracy allegations. However, one recent example has emerged showing that if innocuous information cannot be exaggerated, then it can be completely manufactured.

In the following video, Right Wing News looks at the left’s ‘proof’ that Trump campaign was colluding with a Russian bank. Their proof of course, was simple email correspondence between the two parties. And now explosive evidence has emerged showing that the communication was the result of a hacker manufacturing evidence of the illusion of contact. This is another level of deception; from malicious mischaracterization to willful fabrication of evidence.

First Democrat Official Tied To Elite Pedophile Ring Pleads Guilty (Video)

While the mainstream media has been trying to keep the public distracted with yet more stories about Russian conspiracies, the crackdown against high level pedophiles has begun. We have previously reported that many pedophiles are far from the image of a stereotypical loser; in fact they are often placed in the highest rungs of society, and are extremely well connected. Case in point – Democrat and former mayor of Hubbard, Ohio Richard Keenan.

In the following video, Right Wing News looks at the recent guilty admission by the former mayor of 20 counts of sex crimes, including 8 counts of rape. The victim was 4 years old when the abuse started. President Trump is intensifying his efforts against the embedded pedophile rings, and this is only the beginning.

Now that they know the President himself is after them, what desperate tactics will Democrats and the mainstream media resort to in order to keep themselves out of jail?

Trump and Alex Jones were under illegal, unauthorized government monitoring during those years.

White House Intruder Was Pizzagate Whistleblower Trying to Contact Trump (Video)

If you happen to be someone who has refused to look at the evidence supporting the existence of #Pizzagate, because the same media that has lied to you about every thing else in your life says it’s “fake news,” then I have a simple question for you. It’s the same question I close this post with.

If there is no #Pizzagate, and there are no massive pedophile rings connected to the DNC outside the minds of crazy “conspiracy theorists,” then how is it that over 1,500 child sex offenders have been apprehended by Trump’s administration in just the first two months he’s been in office? Why has wasn’t the previous Democrat administration able to do something if Trump has rounded up 1,500 in about 60 days?

PizzaGate is one of two things:

Trump was, in fact, under surveillance during Barack Obama’s tenure as President.

Why the boycott? When swarms of media hacks flocked to Mr. Kaepernick’s locker after NFL games, Kaepernick would repeatedly share before a national audience that he could not bring himself to stand for the flag of a country that “oppresses black people” the way the United States does.

Kellyanne Conway Just Revealed What Really Happened Election Night (Video)

If there’s one word that can sum up the attitudes of the left, it would be arrogance. Arrogance due to their supposed cultural superiority and enlightened social values. Arrogance due to the fact that they were convinced that the social and political tides were on their side and that their victory was a mere formality. Well, make that former arrogance, because Kellyane Conway has just revealed what really went down the night that Trump popped their delusional bubble.

In the following video, Right Wing News looks at a recent interview with Trump’s former campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway, whose tale of what went down behind the scenes is nothing short of sheer arrogance. Not only did Clinton not have a concession speech prepared, but her campaign manager informed Conway that Trump would have 15 minutes after the AP announcement to concede. It really is disgusting, the sneering arrogance of the left. Fortunately, the tide is turning, but the battle is far from over.

Who Towers Behind Trump?

By Michael Collins Piper

An inquiry into the background of flamboyant American entrepreneur Donald J. Trump provides some surprising insights into Trump’s path to power and influence, for the fact is that Trump’s rise to stardom came as a direct consequence of his having functioned as hardly more than a colorful front man for some very wealthy behind-the-scenes sponsors.

Getting Donald Out Of Debt: The 25-Year-Old Ties That Bind Trump and Wilbur Ross (And Rothschild)

America’s first billionaire president is riding into the White House with populist support -- and he’s bringing some billionaire friends with him. One of them is distressed-asset investor Wilbur Ross, who is Trump’s pick for commerce secretary. The two have a history that spans more than 25 years.

Trump made a bold bet on Atlantic City when he opened a third casino there -- the colossal Taj Mahal -- in April 1990. Even riskier: He financed the project with $675 million in junk bonds at a 14% interest rate. Within months Trump was struggling to make the massive bond payments as Atlantic City floundered.

In stepped Ross, then head of Rothschild Inc’s bankruptcy advising team, to represent bondholders, who were pondering forcing the casino into involuntary bankruptcy and ousting Trump.

THE ROTHSCHILD AND SAUD FAMILIES FUND BOTH JOHN MCCAIN AND HILLARY CLINTON

On 15 December 2016, I headlined “U.S. Gov’t. Is Secretly Allied with America’s Enemies“ and noted that:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why would the Rothchilds be covertly funding candidates who seem, on the surface, so ideologically incompatible?!?

The answer is very simple; both Mc Cain and Clinton are warmongers of the highest order, and bankers love wars, because all sides have to borrow money at horrific interest rates, to keep those wars going.

Trump Delivered Documented Evidence of Obama Wiretaps To House Panel (Video)

At this point in time, the public does not yet know the contents of the documents delivered by President Trump’s DOJ to the House Intelligence Committee regarding the wiretapping incident, but presumably since the documents were sent by Trump’s team, it stands to reason that whatever was delivered to the House Intelligence Committee was in favor of Trump's claims, not the other way around.

Throughout his time in office, Barack Obama associated with many political operatives who were real lowlifes, and who often walked a tightrope between the world of what was considered legal behavior (however unethical), and what was considered criminal behavior. There’s an old saying I'm sure you're familiar with that goes:

A Mexican immigrant who twice entered the U.S. illegally has one man in particular to thank for being able to live and work in Oklahoma City with his family -- Judge Neil M. Gorsuch.

Gorsuch, the nominee President Donald Trump is betting on to be his Supreme Court tie-breaker, wrote a 2016 ruling permitting Hugo Rosario Gutierrez-Brizuela to stay in the U.S. and, his lawyer hopes, within a few years become a citizen.

“Without it we were done," said Timothy Cook, the attorney. Had the decision gone the other way, Gutierrez-Brizuela would have been promptly deported, he said.

Is yours on the list? Struggling J.C. Penney announces 138 store closures across the country and 5,000 job losses

For the first time on Friday, J.C. Penney listed the 138 locations it will shutter in the coming months as the retailer seeks to cut costs and improve its profitability.

Like other department stores, J.C. Penney Co. is hurting as more people shop online instead of heading to the mall.
The closures are part of the company's previously announced plans to focus on its best-performing stores.

About 5,000 jobs will be cut due to the closures, J.C. Penney said.
The company had about 105,000 full and part-time employees last year.
Nine stores will close in Texas, the most of any state. Eight will close in Minnesota and seven will be shut in both Michigan and Pennsylvania.

Liquidation sales at the 138 stores will start next month, and most of the stores will be shut by mid-June, the company said.
The closings will leave J.C. Penney with a total of about 900 stores.

Trump’s One Trillion Dollar Infrastructure Boondoggle. Handing Over Public Assets to Private Corporations

Donald Trump’s $1 trillion infrastructure plan is not an infrastructure plan and it won’t put $1 trillion of fiscal stimulus into the economy.

It’s basically a scheme for handing over public assets to private corporations that will extract maximum profits via user fees and tolls. Because the plan is essentially a boondoggle, it will not lift the economy out of the doldrums, increase activity or boost growth. Quite the contrary. When the details of how the program is going to be implemented are announced, public confidence in the Trump administration is going to wither and stock prices are going to plunge. This scenario cannot be avoided because the penny-pinching conservatives in the House and Senate have already said that they won’t support any plan that is not “revenue neutral” which means that any real $1 trillion spending package is a dead letter. Thus, it’s only a matter of time before the Trump’s plan is exposed as a fraud and the sh** hits the fan.

IF this information is true, I am disappointed beyond what language can convey.

UN official resigns over Israel apartheid report

The head of the United Nations' West Asia commission, Rima Khalaf, has resigned over what she described as the pressure to withdraw a report that was critical of Israel.

The report accused Israel of imposing an apartheid regime on Palestinians. Lebanon-based Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA), which comprises 18 Arab states, published the report on Wednesday and said it was the first time a UN body had clearly made the charge.

"It was expected that Israel and its allies will exercise pressure on the UN secretary-general to distance himself from the report and that they will ask him to withdraw it," Khalaf said at a press conference in Beirut on Friday.

"The secretary-general issued his orders to me yesterday morning to withdraw the report. I asked him to review his position, but he insisted," she said. "Therefore, I submitted to him my resignation from the UN."

Saudi General: Trump Promises Increased Support Against Iran

Saudi Brig. Gen. Ahmed al-Asiri today told a group of US reporters that the Trump Administration has made promises to “significantly” increase US intelligence and military support for the kingdom against Iran, with a particular eye of fighting against the “Iran-backed” Shi’ites in Yemen.

Asiri presented the move as a necessary US commitment to “restore” US-Saudi ties after Saudi resentment that built up during President Obama’s time in office. Though he did not elaborate, Saudi Arabia’s main source of anger at Obama was going along with the nuclear deal with Iran.

Saudi Arabia has long presented its invasion of Yemen as being about the Shi’ites there being an “Iranian proxy,” though evidence suggests no real Iranian support for the Houthi movement before the invasion, and very limited support, mostly to spite the Saudis, afterwards.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

President Trump, a word here please.

Iran has not started a war of aggression in over 300 years.

The IAEA says that Iran has been complying will all facets of the P5+1 Agreement.

If the US and Saudi Arabia start a war against Iran, Russia will definitely come to its defense militarily.

And right now, the US military does not have the troop strength; the money; the weaponry; or the manufacturing to insure a positive outcome to a conventional war against Russia.

And finally, Mr. President, I would like to politely point out to you that it is not Iran which is slaughtering children, women, and non-combatants in Yemen, or starving them to death; it is your good pal, Saudi Arabia, in whose war crimes in Yemen you have decided that the US government will continue to be complicit.

Home About Antiwar.com Donate Blog US Casualties Contact Latest NewsSome in Pentagon Fear ISIS War Surge Is ‘Mission Creep’

Just a couple of months out from inauguration, President Trump has been pushing for some pretty substantial escalations of America’s involvement in the ISIS war. This is true the world over, with special forces being deployed in growing numbers, but nowhere is it more obvious than in Syria, where the US has gone from a few hundred troops to a few thousand.

As those troops increase, so do the military goals being set out for Pentagon commanders, which has many of them concerned that they are facing large-scale mission creep, and are being pushed in the direction of scrapping previous efforts to make sure local forces were doing all the heavy lifting on the ground, and that US troops were just facilitators.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In the case of Syria, the US military is invading the country in order to attempt regime change here; let us be very clear on the objective, and the alleged "fighting ISIS" is just the cover story, because the Syrian and Russian troops have been quite effective in beating back ISIS here.

“A photo showing a fragment of an air-to-surface AGM-114 Hellfire missile has emerged. It leaves no chance for the US-led coalition to remain silent as usual and for diplomats to spout anti-Russian rhetoric,” Major-General Igor Konashenkov said Friday.

A general view shows the debris following a reported airstrike on a mosque in the village of Al-Jineh in Aleppo province, March 16, 2017.

The airstrike on a mosque in Syria’s Aleppo province happened overnight into Friday, March 17. At least 40 civilians are feared killed.

“I think we should expect comments from the US partners anytime soon,” Konashenkov noted.

Absoflippinglutely unbelievable!!

I am having a palm to forehead moment at warp speed, upon reading this!!

Additionally, there is even further damning evidence of potential US military complicity in this bombing from theintercept.com on the incident:

LAPTOP WITH “HIGHLY SENSITIVE” TRUMP DATA, CLINTON EMAIL PROBE INFO STOLEN FROM SECRET SERVICE AGENT

Even when Hillary Clinton is no longer running for president, laptop "accidents" continue to follow her.

As regular readers will recall, shortly before the election, the FBI revealed that a laptop containing some of Hillary Clinton's emails mysteriously disappeared in transit, while several months later, another laptop belonging to Anthony Weiner just as mysteriously was found to contain emails between his then-wife Huma Abedin and her boss, Hillary. The laptop in question prompted the FBI to reopen its probe into Hillary Clinton's emails just days before the presidential election.

Now, according to the New York Daily News which cites police sources, a laptop computer containing information about the Hillary Clinton email investigation, as well as floor plans for Trump Tower and other national security information, was stolen from a Secret Service agent's vehicle in Brooklyn.

Door-Busting Drug Raids Leave a Trail of Blood

As policing has militarized to fight a faltering war on drugs, few tactics have proved as dangerous as the use of forcible-entry raids to serve narcotics search warrants, which regularly introduce staggering levels of violence into missions that might be accomplished through patient stakeouts or simple knocks at the door.

Thousands of times a year, these “dynamic entry” raids exploit the element of surprise to effect seizures and arrests of neighborhood drug dealers. But they have also led time and again to avoidable deaths, gruesome injuries, demolished property, enduring trauma, blackened reputations and multimillion-dollar legal settlements at taxpayer expense, an investigation by The New York Times found.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These raids usually happen in poorer neighborhoods, and of course, to the Deep American State, and their minions overseeing police departments, the killing of poorer American citizens is really of no concern whatsoever.

And did you ever stop to think that whenever the US government "declares war" on something, drugs, poverty, etc, the problem gets worse?!?

The US government should really look at what happened in Portugal, once they decriminalised the ownership of small amounts of recreational drugs for personal use:

Of course, what Portugal did...was logical.

WHICH "WAR TORN" COUNTRY? - U.S. SLAUGHTER IN SOMALIA, YEMEN AND SYRIA

When I saw the above tweet this morning I wondered which "war torn" country those Somalis were fleeing from when they were murdered. The tweet doesn't say. Were they fleeing from the "war torn" Somalia? Or were the fleeing from "war torn" Yemen?

It is a sad world when has to ponder such.

It tuned out these people were fleeing from both wars:

Coast guard Mohammad Al Alay told Reuters the refugees, carrying official UNHCR documents, were on their way from Yemen to Sudan when they were attacked by an Apache helicopter near the Bab Al Mandeb strait.
An Apache attack helicopter shot up the refugees' boat. There are Saudi, United Emirati and U.S. Apache helicopters in or around Yemen. It is unknown which of them ordered and which executed the strike. These helicopters, their ammunition and the service for them are a favored U.S. export to belligerent dictatorships like Saudi Arabia.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I remember something the brilliant comedian (and near-prophet) George Carlin once said, and I am paraphrasing here, but the concept was that the US government, and military, were very adept at killing brown people; unfortunately, that hasn't changed since Carlin's death.

As a Christian Pacifist Activist and witness, I am constantly exhorting my government to resolve its geopolitical disputes through moral, hard-won diplomatic negotiations, rather than through war.

Unfortunately, there is, apparently, a tumultuous river of blood-lust running through the veins of the American Deep State, and a deeply held conviction that killing is always the preferred way of resolving disputes, rather than negotiating. In the minds of the members of the Deed State, slaughter is potent; it creates death and fear.

And it doesn't seem to matter which party is in power; the US government's enthusiastic participation in war crimes remains the same.

The Saudi war crimes in Yemen are atrocious and unspeakable, yet the US government continues to sell the bombers, and the bombs, for this genocide, and provide guidance for the bombing runs. Additionally, because Saudi forces have closed Yemeni ports, the Yemeni people, particularly the children, are starving to death.

This is what the US complicity in Saudi war crimes has "accomplished" for the Yemeni people:

Images: wounded and dying Yemeni children from Saudi bombing strikes

Images: Yemeni children starving to death because of Saudi port blockades

The images you are seeing are real; this is the unspeakably ugly face of this country we are projecting abroad, through these horrific wars, and the US government's complicity in war crimes.

I would like to think my brother and sister Americans have not been so sedated by social media, coupled with drugs and a completely dumbed-down education, that they cannot see what is happening, and in the most peaceful way possible, tell the US government that these wars must stop.

Moscow and Beijing join forces to bypass US dollar in world money market

Russia’s central bank opened its first overseas office in Beijing on Thursday, marking a small step forward in forging a Beijing-Moscow alliance to bypass the US dollar in the global monetary system. It was part of agreements made between the two neighbours to seek stronger economic ties since the West brought in sanctions against Russia over the Ukraine crisis and the oil-price slump hit the Russian economy.

Tillerson Urges China to Refrain From Retaliation Against THAAD in S Korea

It isn't economic retaliation Tillerson is bleating about. China moved some heavy EW jammers up to where they can jam THAAD making it useless against an NK riposte!
The Chinese say checkmate.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson urged China on Friday to refrain from creating economic policies which could hinder South Korea’s deployment of a US Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) anti-ballistic missile system.

"While we acknowledge China's opposition, its economic retaliation against South Korea is inappropriate and troubling. We ask China to refrain from such actions," Tillerson said during a press conference following his talks with South Korean Foreign Minister Yun Byung-se.

Moscow and Beijing join forces to bypass US dollar in world money market

Russia’s central bank opened its first overseas office in Beijing on Thursday, marking a small step forward in forging a Beijing-Moscow alliance to bypass the US dollar in the global monetary system.

It was part of agreements made between the two neighbours to seek stronger economic ties since the West brought in sanctions against Russia over the Ukraine crisis and the oil-price slump hit the Russian economy.

The opening of a Beijing representative office by the Central Bank of Russia was a “very timely” move to aid specific cooperation, including bond issuance, anti-money laundering and anti-terrorism measures between China and Russia, said Dmitry Skobelkin, deputy governor of the Central Bank of Russia.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

SOMEONE in the previous administration should have thought that this would be one way that Russia and China would react to the absolutely stupid anti-Russian sanctions for something it absolutely didn't do, which was the "alleged annexation" of Crimea (forgetting that the people of Crimea held two referendums to ask their people if they wanted to leave Ukraine, post-2014 putsch, and join the Russian Federation.)

But then again, I have learned, through many frustrating decades of many US governmental Administrations, that the pathological inability to think a scenario through to its logical conclusion seems to be a very stringent requirement for going to work for it.

The Utter Hypocrisy of the Government in the Bundy Ranch Trial

The utter hypocrisy that is being demonstrated in the Bundy Ranch trial by those who swore an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution from both foreign and domestic enemies is quite telling as to the level of corruption we are seeing in our land today. Furthermore, it is demonstrating that many of those who have taken that oath not only don’t know what the Constitution says, but also have become the very domestic enemies they proclaim to oppose because of their ignorance.
“In a shocking statement made outside the earshot of the Jury this past Friday, Navarro said that she has no obligation to allow the defense to call the former Special Agent in Charge of the Bundy cattle impoundment to the stand for the purpose of impeaching his testimony to the grand jury.”

What You Do On Your Cell Phone Could Come Back To Haunt You (Video)

The Vault 7 release by WikiLeaks of classified CIA document has been eye-opening to many. The true extent of the CIA’s surveillance and monitoring capabilities through our everyday consumer devices is staggering. For many of us, our smartphones are an integral part of our daily lives, and 85% of the world’s smartphones or all smartphones using the Android operating system, are vulnerable to being exploited by the CIA.

In the following video, Right Wing News looks at the true and disturbing capacity of the Deep State apparatus to monitor almost every facet of our daily lives. Our liberties are slowly being eroded and even our most intimate and private conversations are no longer safe. All in the name of national security (translation: ‘for our own good’).

Mike Krieger: "Forget Russia, Donald Trump Works For Wall Street"

The evidence is overwhelming and indisputable at this point. Donald Trump is a phony, who has given his administration over to Wall Street crooks even more enthusiastically than his predecessors, and his predecessors were very enthusiastic.

I’ve written about this many times, and I warned throughout the campaign that my biggest fear was Trump is far too cozy with the finance industry, fake populist statements aside. His latest hire for the number two position at the Treasury Department once again proves the point.

As David Dayen reports in his excellent article at The Intercept, Donald Trump Isn’t Even Pretending to Oppose Goldman Sachs Anymore:

The Crumbling American Superpower

A Wall Street-driven agenda of globalization of US manufacturing and out-sourcing of production has left America a hollowed-out, crumbling Superpower. Since the 1980’s the United States has significantly under-invested in both new infrastructure and in renewing old. As US multinational corporations moved their factories overseas to cheap labor production in Mexico, then in Asia, especially China, and elsewhere, they found tax loopholes that allowed them to walk away from supporting the country that as recently as the 1960’s was the world industrial economic leading nation. Today US corporations hold $2.4 trillion in overseas profits that they keep abroad to avoid US taxes.

The result of all this neglect is that over the past three decades since the end of the 1980s, federal funding of major infrastructure projects such as dams has dropped by half, from 1 percent to 0.5 percent of GDP.

Nuclear Engineer: Fukushima Meltdown Could Last 250,000+ Years (VIDEO)

If there’s one thing that we can trust governments everywhere to do, it’s to obscure and obfuscate the truth to make themselves look good. Massive global debt-fueled bubble? No problem! Dangerous radiation levels still present from the Fukushima incident? Fake news! Our government has been proven time and time again to be guilty of covering up the truth, and the Japanese government is no different.

In the following video, Right Wing News looks at something that the Japanese government and the American government are desperately trying to downplay – the full severity of the Fukushima incident. Until today, the location of the nuclear cores is still unknown and the Pacific ocean continues to be contaminated by radiation. One nuclear engineer estimates that the effects of this disaster could last for 250,000 years. And what are the world governments doing about it? Nothing of course, but then again since when were they overly worried about the plight of the common citizen.

General Petraeus: Approves of Revoking Military Veterans 2nd Amendment (Video)

The philosophy of the authoritarian government is that citizens don’t know what’s good for them, which is why the all-knowing government has to step in to ‘guide’ them. And when it comes to the issue of personal ownership of firearms, the federal government has for years been trying to restrict the constitutionally protected right to bear arms of its own citizens. For their own safety, of course.

In the following video, Right Wing News looks at the continuing battle surrounding our Second Amendment rights, this time surrounding the issue of military veterans – the very people who have been trained in their proper use and handling.

Currently, if/when military veterans become arbitrarily labeled with the mental health moniker of ‘mentally incompetent,’ they become banned from exercising their Second Amendment rights. One of the reasons for the attempted repeal has a lot to do with the fact that the term‘mentally incompetent’ is loosely defined. Let me give you an example:

Deep State’s Obamanation Desperately Resists Trump’s Wrecking Ball (Video)

8 years of an Obama presidency. 8 years of allowing the Deep State’s Manchurian Candidate to advance their agenda of cultural Marxism throughout the United States of America. 8 years of undermining our country’s very heart and soul. Of course, their agenda didn’t succeed, because their chosen candidate Hillary Clinton, didn’t win. And now that President Trump is determined to purge all the Deep State insiders from the government, they are fighting to survive.

In the following video, Right Wing News look at how 8 years of an Obama presidency had a devastating effect on America’s cultural landscape. By promoting a culture of permissiveness and promiscuity while degrading traditional American values, Obama and the Deep State have influenced a large portion of the American public away from these values.
