TSA Fails Around 80% Of Undercover Tests – Report

A report revealing “vulnerabilities” at Transportation Security Administration (TSA) airport checkpoints has disturbed lawmakers, who for the first time received a classified briefing from the new TSA chief.

TSA Administrator David Pekoske and members of the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) Office of Inspector General (OIG) appeared before the House Committee on Homeland Security Wednesday to discuss efforts to keep US transportation systems secure.

DOJ To Russia Today: Register As A Foreign Agent Or Face Arrest

Congress is using a decades-old piece of legislation to force Russia Today to register as a foreign agent in the US, adding that if the site doesn’t comply with the order by Monday, the DOJ could move to shutter its operations and arrest its top executive, RT editor-in-chief Margarita Simonyan.

Russia Today revealed Thursday that the Department of Justice has given the site until next week to comply with its new interpretation of the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA). RT has been operating in the US since 2005.

While undoubtedly disappointing in terms of its implications for first amendment freedoms in the US, the DOJ’s declaration is hardly a surprise. Under pressure from lawmakers, Twitter last month said it would prohibit RT from buying paid ads on its platform.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This threat against RT.com, to which I link frequently, and believe they have some of the most astute writers on both US and international affairs, like Pepi Escobar, is disapponting, but is thoroughly predictable, in the growing cycle of demonization of Russia as a prelude to war against it.

Kuwait Orders Citizens To Leave Lebanon Immediately "As Precaution Against Any Negative Impact That Might Take Place"

The drums of war are beating at a deafening pace: with Saudi Arabia ordering its citizens to immediately leave Lebanon on Thursday, just a few hours later Kuwait joined in.

According to the Kuwait News Agency, citing a foreign ministry statement, Kuwait citizens currently in Lebanon are urged to leave the country immediately.

The statement said the order is due to the "circumstances experienced by Lebanon at the moment, as well as a precautionary measure against any negative impact that might take place."

The ministry also urged citizens not to travel to Lebanon, "wishing at the same time security and stability for the Arab country."

At this point it is safe to assume that war between Lebanon and Saudi Arabia/Israel is just a matter of time.

Saudi Arabia's foreign minister calls for sanctions on Iran for its 'support of terrorism’

"We would like to see sanctions on Iran for its support of terrorism and sanctions on Iran for violating the ballistic missile resolutions of the United Nations," Adel Al-Jubeir, Saudi minister of foreign affairs, told CNBC Thursday

The Kingdom's foreign minister went on to say the most effective way of dealing with Iran would be for the international community to hold Tehran accountable for "fixing" the nuclear agreement, supporting terrorism and for its ballistic missile program

Al-Jubeir described the situation in Lebanon as "unfortunate." He went on to accuse Hezbollah of "hijacking the system" and putting "roadblocks" in front of Hariri at every opportunity

Saudi Arabia later warned its citizens to leave Lebanon immediately

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I frankly would not be at all surprised at seeing Saudi military action against Lebanon commence this weekend.

Dubious Osama bin Laden Documents: A Pretext for a War on Iran

The CIA has given the Long War Journal exclusive access to the supposed Osama bin Laden files taken from his “compound” in Pakistan.

The Long War Journal is a project of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies (FDD) where its editors are senior fellows. The foundation is a refuge for neocons and a staunch supporters of Israel and its policies. It is also a vocal advocate of confronting Iran.

So it shouldn’t come as a surprise the CIA “shared” a carefully selected portion of the documents?—?some 500,000 files?—?with the Long War Journal.

The released documents focus on Iran and its supposed relationship with al-Qaeda.

On November 1, NBC News reported:

The trove also provides new insight into the often adversarial relationship between al Qaeda and Iran?—?the Sunni Muslim terror group and the Shiite republic?—?in the form of a 19-page report described by the Long War Journal as “a senior jihadist’s assessment of the group’s relationship with Iran.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US goverrnment are using its presstitutes and whorespondents to create a climate of demonisation against Iran as a prelude to war against it.

I, for one, can no longer believe anything the US government says through its corporate outlets, and have had it up to HERE with even the possibility of one more American kid dying in a war for resources (with Iran, read: oil, and the sale of oil only in US dollars).

When Karl MArx made the observation that all wars are economic in nature, he was absolutely correct in his assessment.

The UN and Genocide by Starvation in Somalia

What is it going to take for the international media to catch on to this most insidious of crimes, for the world had the food to prevent all these deaths, something the UN is supposed to be on top of.

But then one of the top dogs at the UN is the Executive Director of UNICEF, supposedly the number one (N)o (G)ood (O)utfit with the responsibility to prevent this crime, headed by former National Security Advisor to Pres. Clinton and later failed nominee to head the CIA , Anthony Lake, whose appointment was a favor returned by Pres. Obama. Loyalty to empire can have its rewards in the form of being overlord of a multi billion dollar a year aid empire internationally, UNICEF, and the ability to carry out “long term solutions” as in genocide by starvation of the Somali people.

In Seoul, Trump Delivers War Ultimatum to North Korea. Complete, Unconditional Surrender to US Dictates, or Total War

Trump’s address was not, in any sense, intended to encourage or indicate a road to a peaceful solution to the stand-off over Pyongyang’s nuclear and missile programs. It was, instead, belligerent and provocative. North Korea was offered the choice of complete, unconditional surrender to American dictates, or total war.

Trump summed up Washington’s stance in the concluding section of his 32-minute speech, declaring:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Looks like President Trump is plannning for a multi-front war, against Iran North Korea; Russia; and China, unfortunately.

I am not a betting woman, but were I one, I would bet that hostilities could begin well before the Thanksgiving weekend, and we will see the reimposition of the draft in this country by the first of next year.

In looking at history, FDR had a draft in place almost 9 months before the US declared war on Japan in World War II.

President Trump does not have that luxury, as there is no draft per se in place, only registration; I think Congress would sign off on it in a heartbeat, probably right after the Christmas recess.

Pentagon confirms rare, three aircraft carrier drill November 11-14

The Pentagon said on Wednesday it would soon carry out the first exercise in a decade involving three aircraft carrier strike groups in the Western Pacific, confirming a Reuters report published on Monday.

"It is a rare opportunity to train with two aircraft carriers together, and even rarer to be able to train with three," Admiral Scott Swift, U.S. Pacific Fleet commander, said in a statement, adding the drills would take place from Saturday to Tuesday. U.S. President Donald Trump will be traveling in Asia during the initial days of the drills.

"Multiple carrier strike force operations are very complex, and this exercise in the Western Pacific is a strong testament to the U.S. Pacific Fleet's unique ability and ironclad commitment to the continued security and stability of the region," Swift said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Hopefully, this will keep Kim Jung Un from getting any ideas about shooting off a missile test, just as President Trump gets home on the 14th of this month.

However, there was another, quite surprisimg development of a deal between South Korea and China about which no one but 38north.org seems to have reported:

US Will Have 16,000 Troops in Afghanistan by Early Next Year

Officials say that hundreds of additional US troops are to be deployed to Afghanistan early next year, and that when that deployment is finished, the US may have roughly 16,00 troops in the nation, a substantial escalation since President Trump announced a buildup in August.

Exact figures are tough to come by, of course. It is believed the US has since about 3,800 troops to Afghanistan since the announced buildup, but Trump’s interest in keeping troop levels secret has meant specifics are not released to the media, something that had always been the case in the war’s first 15 years.

Even then, though, the official figures were often lies, as President Trump announced the escalation at a time when the Pentagon said there were 8,448 troops in Afghanistan, but officials later admitted they thought the real figure was closer to 11,000 or 12,000. At this point it’s not wholly certain even the Pentagon keeps track of exact figures.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And this surge will be unlike all the other surges, 16 years on, because.....?!?!?!?

Saudi-Led Coalition Removes Blockade on Major Yemeni Port of Aden - Source

The port has been closed in the wake of a missile launched by Houthi rebels targeting Saudi Arabia.

A local source has told Sputnik that the Saudi-led coalition had removed the blockade of the major Yemeni port of Aden, which will now be able to resume receiving humanitarian aid.

"The leadership of the port has received the consent of the Arab coalition to resume work after three days since the announcement by the coalition on the closure of all sea, air and land harbors in Yemen," the source said.

According to the Saudi Foreign Ministry’s Twitter account, the coalition "took care of continuing the passage of aid and humanitarian goods" in Yemen.

Trump expected to demand China cut financial ties with North Korea

President Trump is expected to urge China to cut its financial links to Pyongyang and expel North Korean workers from the country during his two-day stop.

Trump arrived in Beijing on Wednesday after spending two days in South Korea, where he urged “responsible nations” to unite and stop supporting North Korea.

"You cannot support, you cannot supply, you cannot accept," he said, calling on "every nation, including China and Russia," to fully implement recent U.N. Security Council resolutions on North Korea.

Trump has praised President Xi Jinping for taking some steps against the hermit kingdom but urged him to do more, as White House officials believe the border between China and North Korea remains a trade corridor.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

China has been very clear that it is has done all that it can do regarding North Korea, particularly in light of the following statement by the Chinese government on how it has observed the UN Security Council Resolutions regarding this:

China Says it Fully Implements its Commitments on DPRK After Trump's Demand

IF China says they have done all they can do, President Trump is left with three choices regarding North Korea's nuclear program; a decap strike against Pyongyang, which will have the US and China at war with each other; find a way to depose Kim Jung Un from within; or simply view North Korea as an extant nuclear power, and deal with it on that level.

Democrats working on independent Russia probe

Democrats on the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee have been undertaking their own investigation, without Republicans, on what they term “Russia’s malign influence around the world,” a spokesman for the Democratic side of the committee said on Wednesday.

Sean Bartlett, a spokesman for Senator Ben Cardin, who has been leading the effort, said the Democrats are preparing a “major report” on how Russia seeks to sow distrust and confusion, promote radical voices on divisive issues and gain leverage, while eroding support for democracy and institutions.

The investigation was first reported by The Daily Beast.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Pot...kettle...black.

More demonisation...more sanctions for stuff Russia absolutely didn't do, and whammo, slammo, the US and NATO are off to a war against Russia.

Oh, and BTW, there was a NATO meetin in Brussels this last week, to which peace lovers around the world should have been paying attention; globalresearch.ca characterised it as follows: NATO ministerial meeting: preparing for war against Russia?!?

House panel drops effort to force testimony on Trump 'dossier'

A congressional panel on Wednesday dropped attempts to force the founder of a firm that hired a former British spy to compile a dossier of links between the 2016 Trump election campaign and Russia to testify under oath, a lawyer for the firm said.

Fusion GPS lawyer Joshua Levy said in a statement that Republican Representative Mike Conaway and Democrat Adam Schiff, leaders of the U.S. House Intelligence Committee’s investigation of Trump campaign contacts with Russia, had “agreed to withdraw a subpoena” served on Glenn Simpson, a founder of the firm.

“Mr. Simpson will instead sit for a voluntary interview next week, and nothing will be said at that interview – per the agreement of Mr. Conaway and Mr. Schiff – shall interfere with Mr. Simpson’s ability to assert privileges in this investigation,” Levy said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

OK, someone either got blackmailed - or threatened - to make this testimony which was going to be under oath, go away...

BRITISH ARMS SALES TO SAUDI ARABIA JUMP 500% AS COALITION SEALS OFF YEMEN BORDERS

The sale of UK-made bombs and missiles to Saudi Arabia has leapt by almost 500 percent, according to new data from Campaign Against Arms Trade (CAAT). British munitions have been used in the Saudi-led coalition war in Yemen, contributing to the humanitarian catastrophe there.

Data collated by CAAT shows the UK government had made £4.7 billion from exporting arms and other controlled goods to Saudi since the start of the Yemen war in March 2015, compared to £6 billion worth in the period from January 2008 to April 2015 – a 457 percent increase.

The news comes as Saudi-led coalition forces made the decision on Monday to close temporarily all entry points to Yemen, effectively sealing the country off from the rest of the world.

The UK Government had been widely criticized for its continued assistance in the war on Yemen while simultaneously spending millions on humanitarian aid. In 2017, it sent £155 million to the war-torn country.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These Merchants of Death and the British Parliament have one huge thing in common; before accepting their positions as captains of the assassination club, or as members of the British House of Commons, or House of Lords, they have all had their conscience surgically removed.

It's Profits Uber Alles, baby, and who gives a damn about women, children, infants, and the medically fragile eldely getting blown to smithereens!! It's...commerce! That's the way the world is supposed to work, right?!?

BIG DATA MEETS BIG BROTHER AS CHINA MOVES TO RATE ITS CITIZENS

Imagine a world where many of your daily activities were constantly monitored and evaluated: what you buy at the shops and online; where you are at any given time; who your friends are and how you interact with them; how many hours you spend watching content or playing video games; and what bills and taxes you pay (or not). It’s not hard to picture, because most of that already happens, thanks to all those data-collecting behemoths like Google, Facebook and Instagram or health-tracking apps such as Fitbit. But now imagine a system where all these behaviours are rated as either positive or negative and distilled into a single number, according to rules set by the government. That would create your Citizen Score and it would tell everyone whether or not you were trustworthy.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Such a system will be coming to this country over time; and to those who scoff at such a system being introduced in this country; just wait.

US SPENT $5.6 TRILLION ON WARS SINCE 9/11 – STUDY

Washington has expended a whopping $5.6 trillion on wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria and Pakistan since 2001, according to a new study. That figure is more than three times what the Pentagon has claimed in official estimates.

Research from the Watson Institute of International and Public Affairs at Brown University found that as of late September, the US wars combined with “additional spending on Homeland Security and the Departments of Defense and Veterans Affairs” had totaled more than $4.3 trillion since the 9/11 attacks in 2001. That number surged to $5.6 trillion once likely costs were added for fiscal year 2018, along with estimated future spending on veterans.

The study noted that its figure is drastically different from the $1.52 trillion which the Pentagon claims the wars have cost US taxpayers between fiscal years 2001 and 2018. That number was given in an earlier Pentagon report titled ‘Estimated Cost to Each Taxpayer for the Wars in Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria.’

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Wars, unless very short and very successful, will bankrupt a country over time; this is precisely what is happening to the Occupied, Unhinged, Surveilled States of Amerika.

THE SAUDI PURGE: THE MIDDLE-EAST IS ON THE VERGE OF A NEW WAR

Other high-ranking members of the establishment and the royal family - the two tend to be one and the same in Saudi Arabia - get arrested on charges of corruption, with their bank accounts frozen.

Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri unexpectedly resigns after he was summoned to Riyadh by his Saudi-backers.

Meanwhile, Saudi Arabia accused Iran of conducting acts of “direct military aggression” and accused Lebanon of “declaring war” on Riyadh by allowing Hezbollah “aggression” against the kingdom.

All this happened in a span of just a few days.

With ever-growing security challenges and problems at the regional level, the crisis that took hold of Saudi Arabia does not seem to be slowing down.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This "attack against corruption", with which these imprisoned princes are accused, was simply a way for the Crown Prince to consolidate his power; seize about 88 billion dollars' worth of assets; and leave him a free hand to finish the job in Yemen according to his will (which will probably mean carpet bombing the country very soon), and tricking the Iranian military into invading Lebanon to defend Hizbullah as an excuse to declare war against Iran.

We have just seen the Saudi decree that all Saudi nationals need to leave Lebanon immediately; they could not be telegraphing any more loudly that something wicked this way comes for Lebanon.

But Prince Salman had better get his geopolitical ducks in somewhat of a row before he attacks Iran.

Russia's military and civilian leadership has pledged, consistently, that should Iran be attacked, Russia will come to its aid militarily.

Does Prince Salman really believe, seriously, that he could win a military confrontation with Russia over Iran, even with the US's and Israel's military assistance?!? Were I he, and his advisors, I would rethink that scenario through, very, very carefully before he starts World War III.

NEVER FORGET: THE US GOV’T CARRIED OUT THE LARGEST CHURCH MASSACRE—24 YEARS AGO, IN TEXAS

Now, some of those in the mainstream media are calling Sutherland Springs the deadly massacre in a church in US history. However, the actual largest church massacre in history had a far greater death toll.

The US government carried out the deadliest church massacre in history and it led to the deaths of 82 men, women, and children. It all came to a violent end 24 years ago in Texas.

Our source material comes from the FBI’s own vault, which contains two files on the case against Vernon Howell, also known as David Koresh. Koresh was the leader of the “Branch Davidians Seventh Day Adventists.” According to the FBI case file, Koresh was believed to have been holding people against their will at his compound in Waco, Texas, potentially guilty of “involuntary servitude and slavery” charges.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As reported at the NYT in 1999:

Internal F.B.I. documents disclosed today by a Democratic lawmaker show that information about the use of combustible tear-gas canisters at the 1993 Branch Davidian siege near Waco, Tex., has sat in the Justice Department's files for years and was even sent to Congress no later than 1995.

The documents cast new light on when different parts of the Government first had information about the use of the tear gas cannisters and may alter the dynamics of the renewed outcry over events surrounding the Federal Bureau of Investigation tear-gas attack at the Branch Davidian compound, which burned to the ground on April 19, 1993.

The documents show that even though the Justice Department sent United States marshals to the F.B.I.'s headquarters two weeks ago to seize infrared videotapes that contained references to the use of the tear gas rounds, the department had for years possessed F.B.I. records in its own files that showed such devices were used at the cult's compound. The seizure was ordered by Attorney General Janet Reno, who was angry because she had maintained for six years that the F.B.I. had done nothing that could have caused the fire.

In addition, the documents provide evidence that the Federal Bureau of Investigation, which has been accused by some in Congress, the Clinton Administration and the public of misleading the Justice Department about the issue, did provide information about the use of the rounds to Ms. Reno's subordinates on several occasions. Ms. Reno has said she did not see any documents on the subject until two weeks ago.

The Clinton's dear Attorney General, "Bloody" Janet Reno, was precisely the person both of them wanted to have in that position; a mass murderer, slavishly and fanatically devoted to the State, Uber Alles, and a sociopathic liar to boot.

Ignorance Versus Stupidity

One of the most challenging and important jobs for an economics professor is to teach students how little we know and can possibly know. My longtime friend and colleague Dr. Thomas Sowell says, “It takes considerable knowledge just to realize the extent of your own ignorance.” Nobel laureate Friedrich August von Hayek admonished, “The curious task of economics is to demonstrate to men how little they really know about what they imagine they can design.” The fact that we have gross ignorance about how the world operates is ignored by the know-it-all elites who seek to control our lives.

Dick Cheney Once Warned Against Military Action on North Korea
