CCTV captures three cops carrying a 91-year-old woman in a smoke-filled corridor before 'dumping her and leaving her to die' after carrying her out of an apartment in just a nightgown after the block caught fire

Chilling surveillance footage has emerged showing the moment three New York police officers carried a 91-year-old woman through the smoke-filled hallway of a burning building before allegedly dumping her just moments later.

The video shows NYPD Sgt. Timothy Brovakos carrying Ethel Davis out of her Rockaway Beach apartment in Queens with the help of two other officers when they responded to the fire on January 12.

The great-great-grandmother was allegedly abandoned by the officers in a smoke-filled corridor soon after when Brovakos was overcome with smoke and had to be helped to safety by his colleagues.

Davis died of smoke inhalation in hospital the following day.

Bones From Hart Island Mass Graves Washing Up In Local Communities

There have been more than a million people buried in the mass graves on Hart Island since 1980, but since the damage of Hurricane Sandy, that’s become a gruesome problem.

“My baby was buried right near the water,” Dr. Laurie Grant from the Hart Island Project told CBS2’s Natalie Duddridge. “The babies are buried in small coffins, so there’s about five on top of each other.”

Grant’s child was stillborn in 1993, and her daughter is one of more than a million people laid to rest in the country’s largest cemetery. It takes months to schedule a visit there — Grant’s last trip was in 2013, a year after Sandy tore up the seawall, leaving human remains littered along the shoreline.

Advocates say it will only get worse.

World War 3? Pakistan Vows REVENGE On India After Attack -Mac Slavo

As the world quietly goes about their business, Pakistan has vowed to get revenge on India after an attack. The tensions between the two nations are quickly spiraling out of control leading many to wonder if World War 3 will break out in the area soon.

According to the Express UK, the devastating attack from India along the contested border known as the Line of Control (LoC) as tensions between the two South Asian nations flare, a retired soldier has claimed. The LoC splits the region of Kashmir, with Pakistan owning one side and India, the other. The region of Kashmir has been contested by both countries for decades causing high levels of tensions between the neighboring states.

YouTube Censorship: ‘They Are Stepping It Up, Something Is In The Works’

Most can see that YouTube is scrubbing videos and deleting accounts that don’t tow the line and parrot the mainstream media and government’s official timeline of events for things. And it’s getting worse by the day, it seems.

SGTReport, a YouTube channel, recently had a man named Ron Johnson on their show to discuss the termination of accounts and videos that are true, but aren’t in line with the ideology of “the state is your god.” Johnson had his YouTube channel, Stranger Than Fiction News, deleted after gathering 150,000. He describes his channel as “Christian news.” In the interview with SGT Report, Johnson says “something is in the works,” because YouTube has stepped up their censorship campaign to new levels.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What is coming, and what Youtube is going to be censoring, is.... any dissent from the wars and more wars,courtesy of the Unhinged Surveilled State of America, the world is going to experience. The US hopes to iradicate any logical, critical thinking which could deflect from the official government narrative.

The American Deep State wants no factual, logical coverage of these wars; it only wants sensational support, based on lies, fabrication, and half truths. In fact, the US government has just established... wait for it... an official US Department of Propaganda, as reported at antiwar.com, today:

State Deparment gest $40 million to Fund a Troll Farm

And to look at where these wars are going to hit, all you have to do is look at the following reality; sanctions plus demonization are almost always preludes to war.

The US government has been demonizing the following countries, and throwing sanctions against them; this clearly means that Russia; China; North Korea; and Iran are in the cross hairs of the Deep State's "To Do" List.

U.S. Escalates Threat Against Iran After Russia U.N. Veto

The United States has escalated international tensions with Iran, threatening unilateral action against the Islamic Republic on Monday after Russia vetoed a United Nations Security Council motion to call out Tehran for allowing weapons to fall into the hands of Yemen's Houthi group.

“If Russia is going to continue to cover for Iran then the U.S. and our partners need to take action on our own. If we’re not going to get action on the council then we have to take our own actions,” said U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley during a visit to the Honduran capital of Tegucigalpa.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What precisely Haley means by "We will have to take our own actions", couldn't possibly be more clear; the US government is going to war against Iran, probably with Russia defending it, and Saudi Arabia on the US side, fighting it.

This will most probably result in a world war.

Yet another manifestation of the Trump Administration's "OR ELSE!!" foreign policy.

Supreme Court rules immigrants can be detained indefinitely

Autoplay: On | Off
Immigrants can be held by U.S. immigration officials indefinitely without receiving bond hearings, even if they have permanent legal status or are seeking asylum, the Supreme Court ruled Tuesday.

In a 5-3 ruling Tuesday, with Justice Elena Kagan recusing, the court ruled that immigrants do not have the right to periodic bond hearings.

The ruling is a defeat for immigration advocates, who argued that immigrants should not be held for more than six months at a time without such a hearing.

The Supreme Court ruling follows a Trump administration appeal of a ruling by the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals last year that imposed a rule requiring immigrants held in custody be given a bond hearing every six months, as long as they aren't considered a flight risk or a danger to national security.
“To impose a rigid six-month rule like the Court of Appeals did is really a mistake,” Solicitor General Ian Gershengorn said in November.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is a very slippery slope, and I think, not a great decision from the Supremes.

Yes, we want to keep the country safe from those who would do its citizens harm; but how soon will this "indefinite detention" start to creep, and placed against native-born US citizens, because the government doesn't like their politics?!?

The US Is Protecting ISIS to Weaken Rivals, Expand US Occupation of Syria

The dominant view of the US-led coalition against the Islamic State (ISIS), Operation Inherent Resolve, is that its fundamental goal is the defeat of ISIS.

And so, in the wake of the routing of ISIS from Iraq and Syria, the core justification for an ongoing US military presence in Syria is ensuring that no post-mortem ISIS insurgency arises.

That the US is unequivocally opposed to ISIS is simply taken for granted.

Yet a closer look at the history of US involvement shows that counterterrorism has been a lesser concern relative to geopolitical and strategic goals. Whenever the goals of expanding territorial control or weakening rivals conflicts with the goal of opposing ISIS, the entity was either ignored or even empowered in pursuit of these more paramount concerns.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Abosoflippinglutely unbelievable, but perfectly predictable for the US government.

Turkey Threatens to Invade Greece

In an incident that took place less than two weeks after the Greek Defense Ministry announced that Turkey had violated Greek airspace 138 times in a single day, a Turkish coast guard patrol boat on February 13 rammed a Greek coast guard vessel off the shore of Imia, one of many Greek islands over which Turkey claims sovereignty.

Most of the areas within modern Greece’s current borders were under the occupation of the Ottoman Empire from the mid-15th century until the Greek War of Independence in 1821 and the establishment of the modern Greek state in 1832. The islands, however, like the rest of Greece, are legally and historically Greek, as their names indicate.

Turkey’s ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP), however, and even much of the opposition seem intent on, if not obsessed with, invading and conquering these Greek islands, on the grounds that they are actually Turkish territory.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This, coupled with the following article, also at globalresearch.ca, does not augur well for peace in the region:

Erdogan Vows to Recapture all Lands Once Held by the Ottoman Empire... and more

What we have here... is a President of a NATO member who appears to have lost his reality licence; what is NATO going to do now, in light of the fact that Greece is also a NATO member, as well as the US, a NATO member with troops embedded with Kurds in Syria, who Edrogan wants to have wiped off the face of the earth?!?

Could this herald the end of NATO as we have known it?!?

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, you had BETTER start working the phones here, and fast, if you do not want to see NATO disintegrate into a hideous regional war between existing NATO members.

State Dept Gets $40 Million to Fund Troll Farm: US propaganda office set to 'go on the offensive'

On Monday, the US State Department announced that it had obtained $40 million from the Pentagon to fund a new propaganda and disinformation campaign through the “Global Engagement Center.”

While the Global Engagement Center was initially conceived of as resisting foreign propaganda efforts, the new funding is set to be invested in going “on the offensive” in global propaganda war with America’s own disinformation campaigns.

The US, of course, is no stranger to engaging in overseas propaganda efforts, but the inexorable nature of global information sharing in the modern era means that such US propaganda always risks misinforming the US public.

Congress has approved the offensive on the grounds that it be used to “counter Russia.” In practice, this likely means much of the funding will be used to try to skew global perception of Russia even more hostile than it already is.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Wow, an official American Department of Propaganda!!

How Goebbels of the American government!!

"Hey, if the truth can't get you where you want to go, as an Empire in Decline, then BEND IT till it does!!"- official Global Enegagement Center Souce.

And for those of you who have forgotten your history (which means you are doomed to repeat it, probably, this time against Russia), let me offer you a little bite-sized slice of Nazi History during World War II.

MINISTRY OF PROPAGANDA AND PUBLIC ENLIGHTENMENT

The article goes on to state:

"In the days after the Nazi electoral victories of July 1932, Adolf Hitler informed Joseph Goebbels that he intended to make Goebbels director of a new propaganda ministry when the Nazis took over the reins of national government. Goebbels soon envisioned an empire that would control schools, universities, film, radio, and propaganda. “The national education of the German people,” he wrote, “will be placed in my hands.”

"Control of Film, Radio, Theater, and the Press

Still, Goebbels wielded enormous influence. Film, radio, theater, and the press largely fell under Goebbels’s jurisdiction (though he shared power over the press with the head of the Reich Press Chamber, Max Amann, the Nazi newspaper magnate, and after 1937 with Otto Dietrich, head of the Reich Press Office). Goebbels also continued as head of the party’s propaganda apparatus that reached down to the local Nazi organizations. At the age of thirty-five, the youngest minister in the new cabinet, Goebbels became indispensable to the regime and to Adolf Hitler."

I would politely suggest that the creation this "Department of Global Engagement" by the United States State Department, is a demonstration of desperation on the cusp of madness, to invent a narrative through which to create a "war fever" in the brains of the American public, which will convince them that nothing short of a war with Russia can possibly save us from capitulating to its horrific objectives.

Remember the formula; unrelenting demonization of a country, coupled with massive sanctions against it, as we see with both Russia and North Korea right now, is almost always a prelude to war.

FBI and Sheriff Either Failed Miserably Before Parkland Shooting… Or Much Worse

Sheriff Scott Israel’s department mishandled the numerous alerts about the shooter. He hired the deputy who cowered outside rather than confront the shooter. Now four other deputies are reported to have arrived on the scene while the shooting was ongoing, and likewise did not intervene.

Scott Israel wants to blame the NRA when it was his department that failed to prevent and then failed to stop this shooting. Why is he being paraded around the news as if his opinion on guns matters? He is the poster child for why you should never have to depend on law enforcement.

US Airstrike Kills 25, Including Children, in Eastern Syria: Slain were mostly women and children

A US airstrike in eastern Syria’s al-Shaafa region has killed at least 25 people on Monday, with more than half of the slain identified as women and children, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

Details on the slain are still emerging, but US spokesman Col. Ryan Dillon attempted to downplay reports, saying the US takes “all allegations seriously,” and that if any civilians were killed they’d be included in the Pentagon’s monthly list. The Pentagon, of course, tends to ultimately count only about 10-15% of the deaths in their official lists.

The al-Shaafa area is believed to be one of the last strongholds of ISIS forces inside Syria, and that has made it a popular target for airstrikes by various anti-ISIS factions. So far, however, the strikes have appeared to kill mostly just random civilians.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The murder of a country's children, via airstrikes, is an assassination against that country's future.

In its vicious and violent attempt to partition Syria, the American Government is completely unphased by its military commiting these war crimes; I do not blame the American military for this; it is their mission, and they can shake off civilian casualties by characterising them as "collateral damage."

It is simply another manifestation of the Trump administration's "OR ELSE!!" foreign policy, one to which I am afraid that the American people have become "comfortably numb", in order to avoid having to think about this, or discuss the moral rightness of these actions.

Police: Social media post leads to arrest of high school student in Durham

Police say a “suspicious post” made by a high school student on social media lead to an arrest on Friday night.

According to Connecticut State Police, on Feb. 23 around 1:15 p.m., units received a report from Coginchaug Regional High School in Durham of the post made by a student.

Authorities say no physical threat was made, but that the post caused “annoyance and alarm” which disrupted the school.

The student was charged with Breach of Peace and is scheduled to appear in juvenile court on March 14.

South Korea Pushes for US, North Korea Talks; Trump Says ‘We’ll See’

Hoping to expand on diplomatic gains made surrounding the Winter Olympics, South Korea is pushing for the US and North Korea to both ease their stances a bit and get to the table for direct negotiations and quickly as possible.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in in particular said the US needs to lower its threshold for talks, citing long-standing US preconditions, while North Korea should make it clear they’re willing to discuss nuclear disarmament.

North Korean officials have broached the subject in the past, saying they would be willing to disarm their nuclear program if the deal ends the threat of US attack, which they believe they need a nuclear deterrent to preclude.

White House officials reiterated over the weekend that they would only talk if there was a guarantee that the talks would end in North Korea’s denuclearization.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would love to think that this was possible; but North Korea will not stand down from its position to remain a nuclear-armed country, as a deterrent to a US invasion, and the US government will not stand down from its position that it will not talk unless North Korea denuclearises.

So what we have here... is the potential for a catastrophe which may will impact the entire planet.

Expect China to join the fray on North Korea's side, should the US start this war; the best hope would be for China to remain neutral, if North Korea started an attack on any US assets, but were I a betting human being, I would not bet on that happening.

Norway will spend $13 million to upgrade its doomsday seed vault

Norway will spend 100 million Norwegian Crowns ($12.7 million) to upgrade the doomsday seed vault it built 10 years ago. The Svalbard Global Seed Vault was constructed in an abandoned Arctic coal mine to store and safeguard the world’s crops and plants from global natural or man-made disaster. If nuclear war or global warming kills certain crops, governments will be able to request seeds from the vault to restart their agricultural industries.

The Norwegian government says the upgrades will include the construction of a new concrete access tunnel and a service building that will house “emergency power and refrigerating units and other electrical equipment that emits heat through the tunnel.” Norway’s minister of agriculture and food, Jon Georg Dale, said the building work will begin soon. “It is a great and important task to safeguard all the genetic material that is crucial to global food security,” Dale said in a statement.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The government of Norway sees what is coming, geopolitically, and is very wise to be doing this now, and quickly.

BRITAIN OFFICIALLY PREPARES NOW FOR WAR AGAINST RUSSIA

Eric Zuesse, originally posted at strategic-culture.org
On Wednesday, February 21st, the UK’s Minister of Defence, Conservative Gavin Williamson, announced that the United Kingdom is changing its fundamental defence strategy from one that’s targeted against non-state terrorists (Al Qaeda, etc.), to one that’s targeted instead against three countries: Russia, China, and North Korea. He acknowledged that a massive increase in military spending will be needed for this, and that “savings” will have to be found in other areas of Government-spending, such as the health services, and in military spending against terrorism.

The headline in the London Times on February 22nd was “Russia ‘is a bigger threat to our security than terrorists’”. Their Defence Editor, Deborah Haynes. reported:

The threat to Britain from states such as Russia and North Korea is greater than that posed by terrorism, the defence secretary said yesterday, marking a significant shift in security policy.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Forgive me, but has this gentleman, and the entire government of the UK, gone collectively barking-dog mad, in this assessment?!?

Or, was it theirs to make in the first place, or a determination forced upon them by the current US administration?!?

With so much of their country already living in the abject misery of poverty because of the British government's austerity program, what will the future tooling up of their war machine, possibly coupled with conscription of Britain's youth, mean for Britain's future?!?

So I have a statement for Mr Williamson to ponder: Those who do not understand the past (Iraq) are doomed to repeat it (Russia, China, Korea).

BROWARD COUNTY SHERIFFS DEPUTIES WERE ORDERED NOT TO ENTER FLORIDA SCHOOL UNLESS BODY CAMERAS WERE ON

Fox News’ Laura Ingraham dropped a bombshell revelation on the Florida Parkland school shooting, exposing how the Sheriff’s department ordered Broward deputies to NOT enter the school unless their body cameras were switched on.

To make matters even more confusing, the deputies were not even equipped with body cameras to begin with.

From @IngrahamAngle: Broward County Sheriff Deputies were reportedly told not to enter the school during the shooting unless they had body cameras on, which they did not have. So deputies did not enter the building or engage the shooter.

AMERICANS ARE HORRIFIED BY MASS KILLINGS — UNLESS THE GOVERNMENT IS DOING IT

As Americans continue to rage over the Valentine’s Day school shooting in Florida, expressing indignation at both the atrocity and efforts to impose (or reject) gun control, the U.S. government has acknowledged its own perpetual addiction to violence.

According to two letters released by the federal government last week in response to an inquiry from Virginia Senator Tim Kaine, the U.S. plans to maintain its military presence in Syria and Iraq indefinitely, citing vague threats of terrorism.

In one letter, Deputy Under Secretary of Defense (Policy) David Trachtenberg responded to Kaine by justifying continued operations in Syria with the 2001 Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF), passed by Congress in the wake of 9/11 to justify invading Afghanistan.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

An "indefinte" US military presence in Syria?!?

Forgive me, but has either Syria's Al-Assad or Russia's Putin received a copy of this memo?!?

Remember; Russia was invited by the Syrian government to assist with getting rid of the Western-backed jihadists; the US absolutely was not.

The US military actions in Syria and Iraq are absolutely not about "self-defense", except in the pure economic sense; these actions are about ultimately, regime change in Damascus, making Syria more Western-Centric, and in both countries, assuring that the oil from these countries is only sold in US dollars; it is just that simple.

This virtually guarantees a military confrontation between Russia and the United States in Syria. I think that the question of how much of this nonsense Syria and Russia will take from the United States will be answered relatively shortly.

Unfortunately, it appears that US foreign policy, under the Trump administration, has devolved to the "OR ELSE!!!" school of foreign policy, which counts only on threats, and pre-emptive wars with which to secure what the US government wants to accomplish, rather than even attempt to make deals which would accomplish the same outcomes.
'
This country was founded on a brilliant concept of responsible, representative government, serving the needs and hopes of its citizens; that country has died, and been replaced by a government which only represents the needs and concerns of major corporations, and their desire to acquire, no matter how many innocents get crushed in the way of those acquisitions.

Wars are fought for corporate profit, not for any great noble ideal; not for truth; not for justice; and not to allegedly protect the "American Way of Life", whatever that is supposed to be.

When Karl Marx observed that "All wars are economic in origin.", he was being ruthlessly honest, which is why so many US politicians hate this reality; after all, it thoroughly interferes with the US Deep State narrative that its wars are always just; honest; and moral, which we now know to be a complete and utter lie.

Jared Kushner Belongs To Rothschild’s Doomsday Cult

Sheriff Israel is a Chabad-Lubavitcher.

Trump’s son-in-law and senior advisor Jared Kushner belongs to an elite doomsday cult that boasts the Rothschilds as members and is trying to foment a “prophesied” third world war.

Chabad Lubavitch is a Jewish supremacist cult that serve the Illuminati. Despite only having 200,000 elite followers, it has intimate ties to nearly every powerful government leader on earth.

The cult believes Jews are God’s chosen people and everyone else is trash. In the book Gatherings of Conversations Rebbe Schneerson tells his followers that Jewish people are an extension of God and Gentiles are destined to serve the Jews.

The Rothschilds belong to this cult. Historian Wolfgang Eggert says Chabad Lubavitch is the real face of the Illuminati. He says this cult intends to initiate a nuclear holocaust in order to fulfill biblical prophecy and hasten the return of the Messiah:

Father Of Daughter Killed In Parkland Slams The MSM For Talking About Guns, Not Safety

Andrew Pollack, whose daughter was killed in the recent Parkland shooting, appeared on Fox News Sunday and finally added some common sense to the media’s anti-gun hysteria. Pollack blasted the media for making the incident about gun control rather than “school safety.”

Pollack is finally discussing school safety rather than limiting the rights of those who haven’t committed any crime. In the wake of the shooting, the media has remained hyper-focused on gun control, with CNN even hosting a scripted and propagandized “town hall” event featuring students from Parkland.

RUSSIA ORDERS DAILY TRUCE FOR EVACUATIONS FROM SYRIA’S EASTERN GHOUTA

Russia said on Monday it would establish an evacuation corridor and implement a five-hour daily truce to allow people to leave Syria’s eastern Ghouta, after a UN Security Council resolution demanding a 30-day ceasefire across the entire country, Reuters reports.

It appeared to make no mention, however, of allowing relief supplies to enter the territory, where 400,000 people are living under siege and bombardment.

Over the past week, Syria’s army and its allies have subjected the rebel-held enclave near Damascus to one of the heaviest bombardments of the seven-year war, killing hundreds.

On Sunday, health authorities there said several people had symptoms consistent with chlorine gas exposure. On Monday, rescue workers and a monitoring group said seven small children had been killed by air and artillery strikes in one town.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

My heart breaks for all the innocents who have been killed in this horrific, US government sponsored war, in an attempt to accomplish regime change in Damascus.

But it has been unable to do that, so has decided to create a "beachhead" in Syria, from where they can attempt to partition the country.

In December, it was reported by the NYT that there had been a fourfold increase in US troops in Syria:

U.S. Says 2,000 Troops Are in Syria, a Fourfold Increase

Many of these troops are now embedded with the Kurdish forces in Manbij, Syria, which, for the moment, is not being invaded by the Turks, because of a deal worked out in consultations between US and Turkish officials.
Syria conflict: US and Turkey agree to avert Manbij clash

But the specre of a Turkish/US military confrontation over Syria, and a Russian/US military confrontation over Syria hangs in the air, like the rotten stench of a corpse; it feels as though one of the two scenarios is very likely to happen, and it is only a question of time before it does.

US sanctions Libya oil smugglers

The United States has issued a new round of sanctions targeting oil smugglers in Libya aimed at blocking exploitation of natural resources that is driving instability, the US Treasury Department said on Monday.

In a statement, Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) said it was sanctioning six people, 24 companies and seven vessels in a move that prohibits Americans from engaging with those targeted and freezes any related property under US jurisdictions.

The sanctions target people from Libya, Malta and Egypt for "involvement in the smuggling of petroleum products from Libya to Europe".

Issued under the authority of a 2016 executive order by then President Barack Obama, companies based in Italy, Libya and Malta are also targets, the statement said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The rest of the world isn't going to be quite that fussy about from where they can get below-market oil, and if they can get it from illegal smugglers in Libya, they will.

This is a massive effort, courtesy of the American government, to appear that it is actually doing something about the instability generated by the assassination of Moamar Ghaddafi 7 years ago, when these sanctions really do next to nothing to get at the root of the problem.

And the root of the problem, is getting Libya stable again, with a functioning government which can protect its own people and its industries, which, unfortunately, does not appear to be happening any time soon.

CHINA DROWNS OUT CRITICS OF LIFETIME XI JINPING PRESIDENCY, AS ‘DISAGREE’ AMONG WORDS CENSORED ONLINE

China’s propaganda machine kicked into overdrive Tuesday to defend the Communist Party’s move to scrap term limits for President Xi Jinping as critics on social media again defied censorship attempts.

The country has shocked many observers by proposing a constitutional amendment to end the two-term limit for presidents, giving Xi a clear path to rule the world’s second largest economy for life.

The rubber-stamp National People’s Congress (NPC) is certain to endorse the move next week, meaning that Xi — already China’s most powerful leader in decades — can stay as president beyond 2023.

Li Datong, a former editor at the state-run China Youth Daily, posted a draft letter urging legislators to vote against the move — which would abolish term limits set in 1982 under Deng Xiaoping to prevent a return to the decades of chaos under Mao Zedong.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

We're not quite there, in terms of media censorship here in the United State; however, Facebook and Twitter are working valliantly to bring this country down to the same state of media censorship as we find in present-day China on this, and many other issues, which they find "objectionalble", and not fitting to the deep state's narrative.

For example, where are Facebook's people talking about the US government and military colluding with Saudi Arabia in the commission of war crimes in Yemen and citing examples of these atrocities?!?

Were I a betting person, I would bet a whole, worthless US cent that such a topic is not discussed there; the only place, most generally, that you will find it is in the independent media.

I do not know about you, but I am very angry at having to stay a citizen of a country which commits war crimes with impunity (BECAUSE IT CAN!!), and unable to leave, because Mike and I are too broke, and too old, to be accepted for citizenship by a more civilized country which doesn't indulge in this kind of behaviour.

Psychiatrist Says: More Psychiatry Means More Shootings

Among the many missed opportunities widely discussed in the media, here is one on the local level where the Department of Children and Families actually went to his home to investigate. The department intended to evaluate Cruz for “possible detainment under the Baker Act, which allows authorities to hold individuals against their will for up to 72 hours.”

What did the investigator find? NBC News quotes the official report: “Mr. Cruz stated that he plans to go out and buy a gun… It is unknown what he is buying the gun for.”

Not only was Cruz planning to buy a gun while apparently refusing to say what he was planning to use it for, but his mother’s observations cast serious doubt on her son’s mental capacity to own a weapon. According to the New York Times, “She told the investigator that Mr. Cruz did not have a gun, though he did have an air gun she would take away from him when he did not follow rules about shooting only at backyard targets.”

Carrie Underwood Shared Her First Selfie Since Getting 40 Stitches in Her Face

Carrie Underwood still isn't quite ready to go fully bare-faced after slipping on some ice outside her Tennessee home and requiring more than 40 stitches in her face, but this past weekend, she did upload her first selfie since sharing the extent of her injuries with her fans. On Saturday, the country singer posted a photo of herself and husband Mike Fisher staring solemnly at the camera while holding red X's over their mouths, with Underwood's on a piece of paper and Fisher's painted on the back of his hand. "Together, we're in it to end it! Help us shine a light on modern day slavery," she captioned the Instagram pic, tagging the End It movement against human trafficking.

PUTIN ACTS TO COUNTER HACK ATTACKS ON TOP RUSSIAN OFFICIALS

Russian President Vladimir Putin has given the Federal Guard Service (FSO) powers to counter hack attacks on state data resources as well as to protect the personal data of senior state officials and their families.
Putin signed the decree, which was published on the official state website for legal information, on Tuesday. It states that the FSO can launch operations on “informational warfare, detection, prevention and elimination of consequences of computer attacks on informational resources of the Russian Federation.”

In addition, the agency is charged with the task of protecting the personal data of senior state officials and their family members, and also sanctioning the processing of such personal data by third parties.

The latest Russian doctrine on information security, introduced at the end of 2016, states that various foreign nations have intensified their efforts to affect Russia’s internal affairs and launch cyberattacks against its key infrastructure.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder, in an election year in Russia, (March 2018) precisely whichnation/state might be doing this, in order to potentially sway the election, and gather scientific intel to make their weapons even begin to catch up to those of Russia?!?

I will give you three guesses and the first two don't count!!

School Shooting Plot Exposed: You Wont Believe who Set it Up

Sadly, the focus on gun control has caused the media (and the people who get their news from the media) to miss the far-larger scandal revolving around Douglas High School.

First, let me be clear; I’m not talking about the scandal of four police officers being on scene when the shooting begins, but who chose to do NOTHING while waiting outside for backup. This is a scandal in and of itself, no doubt, and it should be investigated. The police force that allowed this to happen should be shamed for it. The shooting could, and should, have been far less bloody if only these officers had done what their community expects of them.

EU says Ireland's Apple complaint will only be dropped if it recovers the full $16 billion in unpaid taxes

The European Commission could withdraw its complaint against Ireland for not recovering 13 billion euros in unpaid taxes from Apple if the country recovers the amount in full, the EU's Competition Commissioner Margrethe Vestager told CNBC.

Speaking to CNBC, Vestager said it has taken Ireland "too long" to recover the money, but she understands that the process is complex.

The European Commission will withdraw its complaint against Ireland for not recovering 13 billion euros ($16 billion) in unpaid taxes from Apple, but only if the country recovers that amount in full, the EU's Competition Commissioner Margrethe Vestager told CNBC.

The EU took Ireland to the European Court of Justice last October for failure to recover the sum from the technology giant, when it was ruled that Apple had benefited from illegal tax benefits in Ireland in August 2016. According to EU law, the recovery of funds should usually take four months after the Commission issued its decision.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Watch for the prices of Apple products to soar in an attempt to get this debt paid.

BANK OF AMERICA ADMITS CRYPTOCURRENCIES THREATEN ITS BUSINESS MODEL

One of the largest banks in the United States has acknowledged that cryptocurrencies could pose a threat to its business model. In Bank of America’s new annual report filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), the corporation largely reflected internally about a number of economic, geopolitical, and operational risks faced.

One of those stated risks is surrounding the increased adaptation of cryptocurrencies, which could have negative effects on the corporation’s earning potential.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Oh, HORRORS! Bank of America may well have to become truly competitive to survive! How will they ever do it, short of resorting to sharp business practices which fleece their customers more then they already do?!?

Time will solve that problem, I guess!!

REPORT: DEPUTIES WERE TOLD NOT TO GO INTO HIGH SCHOOL

Fox News’ Laura Ingraham reported Monday that Broward Country deputies were told not to go into Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School during the mass shooting earlier this month.

The alleged reason? They didn’t have any body cameras with them.

“Now, our sources near the Broward County sheriff’s department are telling us that the deputies who arrived at the scene of the shooting were told not to enter the school unless their body cameras were turned on, and then we found out that the deputies did not have body cameras so they did not enter the building or engage the shooter,” Ingraham said.

“Curiously, police also lost radio communications during the parkland shooting. And our source claims that radio communication also went dead during the Fort Lauderdale airport shooting in 2017 that he also got a lot of criticism for.”
