Dramatic Photos Of Record-Setting Wildfire Above Downtown Los Angeles

On Sunday California Governor Jerry Brown declared a state of emergency for Los Angeles County as the La Tuna wildfire encroached on L.A. and burned eerily on the skyline just north of downtown, keeping nervous residents on the alert as homes and business were threatened. What is now being reported as the largest brush fire in Los Angeles history began in Burbank on Friday, but the cause is still under investigation.

Over the weekend a mandatory evacuation order was issued for more than 700 homes in Los Angeles, Burbank and Glendale - the order has since been lifted as firefighters made gains after brief showers hit the area. La Tuna has already burned over 7000 acres and destroyed multiple homes.

Hurricane Irma strengthens to a Category 5 storm

Hurricane Irma strengthened into a monstrous Category 5 storm early Tuesday as it plowed toward the Greater Antilles and southern Florida, officials said.

Its maximum wind speeds were 175 mph and forecasts suggested it would strike Florida and the Gulf of Mexico this weekend, the Washington Post reported.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Wildfires to the left of us, Hurricanes to the right; for those who believe in a God above, it should be clear he is pissed at the recent aggressive behavior of the United States!

How Corporate Lobbyists Dominate Meetings With UK and EU Brexit Negotiators

The far-reaching Brexit agreement that will govern the UK’s exit from the European Union is not only being shaped at the negotiating table, but also by the lobbyists who are trying to influence each side’s position papers and red lines. New analysis of official statistics on lobby meetings with ministers from the UK’s Department for Exiting the EU (DExEU) and members of the EU’s Brexit Task Force reveals a common willingness to privilege the representatives of corporate interests above all others

World War 3? The United States And North Korea Stand On The Brink Of A Nuclear War

After North Korea successfully tested a hydrogen bomb on Sunday, U.S. Secretary of Defense James Mattis warned that the United States is more than capable of “the total annihilation of a country”. Unfortunately, the North Koreans may have already gotten to the point where they are capable of the same thing. Just a handful of North Korean nukes could kill millions of people and render the largest cities in South Korea or Japan completely uninhabitable, and so a nuclear war with the North Koreans should be avoided at all costs. Sadly, global events seem to be relentlessly pulling us in that direction.

Document Surfaces Showing CIA’s Plans to Infiltrate Academia & Change University/College Curriculums

There’s no doubt about it: three letter agencies like the NSA, FBI and CIA and the ones we don’t yet know about are full of great people who want nothing but the best for their fellow human beings. People join these agencies because they have good hearts, and want to see the world thrive in a state of peace, equality, abundance and freedom. That being said, the “disastrous rise of misplaced power” to which President Eisenhower referred when referencing the military industrial complex, has taken a hold of these agencies, which now comprise what’s known as the Deep State. The Deep State is a covert network of powerful and influential people who continue to manipulate, lie, and deceive the public for their own interests.

Robocall scammers will target Harvey victims, FTC warns

The Federal Trade Commission is warning Hurricane Harvey victims of a robocall insurance scam which targets those affected by natural disasters.

Scammers usually call victims located in areas affected by natural disasters and inform them that their “premium is past due,” then direct them to a website where they can make a payment to keep the policy in place, according to the agency.

More facts revealed about mystery sonic attacks on US embassy in Cuba

American officials have revealed more information about a mysterious sonic device that is believed to have caused numerous diplomats to suffer hearing loss and other serious ailments. Last month, the Associated Press reported that the first hearing-loss symptoms were reported by personnel at the US embassy in Havana in the fall of 2016. The news agency said that at least five embassy personnel reported suffering from sudden and unexplained loss of hearing. The symptoms were so serious that caused some American diplomats “to cancel their tours early and return to the United States”, according to the Associated Press.

DPRK H-Bomb: Chinese President Says ‘Dark Shadow Looms’ Over the World

After half a century of peace, a “dark shadow looms” over the world, following an announcement of the successful detonation of a hydrogen bomb by North Korea, according to a statement from Chinese President Xi Jinping.
While addressing the annual meeting of the BRICS economic alliance, Chinese President Xi Jinping — while not directly referring to the Sunday morning nuclear explosion — made note of an increasing unease in the region and around the globe.

In a tacit acknowledgement that Pyongyang's continued weapon and missile development was destabilizing hopes for nuclear non-proliferation, Xi spoke of using negotiation and dialog to put out "the flame of war," cited by The Guardian.

Noting that the recent nuclear detonations had "cast a dark shadow over the world," the Chinese president acknowledged that, "People around the world want peace and cooperation, not conflict or confrontation."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Kim Jung Un's nuclear testing, coupled with his testing of long and medium-range missiles, has to be, for China's President Xi Jingping, the geopolitical equivalent of Kim's "relieving himself" in the Chinese President's face, quite publicly, yet all the while declaring that it's raining.

The next major Chinese Communist meeting to which the above article alludes, happens on 18 October of this year:

Chin a has set October 18 for its next Communist Party Congress: here's what to expect

IF, in fact, the US and South Korea do not haul off with a decap strike immediately (probably preceded by a false flag, to be blamed against North Korea), Xi has precisely 44 days in which to turn North Korea around on its missile and nuclear tests before this critical meeting.

Kim had to know when this upcoming meeting was taking place, and that the timing of this last nuclear test could very much test the credibility of President Xi with his peers; apparently, he didn't give a damn if that happened.

Labor Day 2017: American workers looted by .01% lying War Criminals: $6.5 trillion ‘lost’ by Dept of Defense as political ‘leaders’ & corporate media withhold $1,000,000 per US household from monetary reform and public banking

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

“The only thing new in the world is the history you don’t know.” – President Harry Truman, Plain Speaking: An Oral Biography of Harry S. Truman (1974) by Merle Miller, pg. 26.

Labor Day is the celebration of American workers’ limited victories over oligarchs to raise wages and working conditions above conditions of work animals. Because US .01% oligarchs control corporate media (including public education texts), most Americans are unaware that “leaders” “celebrate” Labor Day in lip-service only while engaged in the ongoing business of psychopathically looting American workers in the annual trillions.

The above factual claims require zero belief, but is the obvious conclusion from the objective and independently-verifiable data as this article explains, documents, and proves.

Idaho police reveal patient defended by ‘heroic’ nurse was an officer

An Idaho police department on Friday revealed that the patient in a Utah hospital is one of its reserve officers and thanked the “heroic” nurse who informed law enforcement that it was against hospital policy to draw blood from an unconscious patient without a warrant.

The Rigby Police Department in a statement on Facebook identified the patient as William Gray, one of its reserve officers. Rigby is a city in southeast Idaho.

The department said Gray was “severely injured” in a car accident during his full-time truck-driving job.

DOCUMENT SURFACES SHOWING CIA’S PLANS TO INFILTRATE ACADEMIA & CHANGE UNIVERSITY/COLLEGE CURRICULUM

The “disastrous rise of misplaced power” to which President Eisenhower referred when referencing the military industrial complex, has taken a hold of these agencies, which now comprise what’s known as the Deep State. The Deep State is a covert network of powerful and influential people who continue to manipulate, lie, and deceive the public for their own interests.

Oh, by the way, it’s safe to assume that the Deep State also includes, as mentioned above, the agencies we don’t yet know about. We know this from looking at history: The National Security Agency (NSA) was founded in 1952, its existence was hidden until the mid 1960s; Another great example is the National Reconnaissance Office, which was founded in 1960 but remained completely secret for three decades.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why am I not surprised at this move?!?

I would not be surprised to have seen US alphabet soup agencies in major acts of radically revising textbooks on journalism to show the consequences of "bad journalistic decisions" in actually tell the truth, when the truth damaged the Deep State narrative to the point of collapsing it all together. And whether these examples were true, or not, really didn't matter. Remember that prophetic statement from George Orwell's "1984":

"Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past."

So, because of my Christian Pacifist Activist stance (meaning: I am constantly exhorting my government to resolve its geopolitical issues with moral, win/win negotiations rather than through wars), my critical thinking capabilities and my insistence on logical answers which benefit We the People, I, and people like me, are now "the principal villains" to my government?!?

If, in fact this is true, the Unhinged, Surveilled States of Amerika are moving in a terribly dystopian, and dark, direction, and I fear greatly for those children who are growing up in this "new normal".

College students “triggered” into a state of total hysteria over the spotting of a banana peel (seriously)

Truth Revolt recently reported that when a student was either unable or too lazy to find a garbage can and threw a banana peel in a tree on the campus at Ole Miss, he inadvertently unleashed a firestorm of controversy. After discarding the peel, Ryan Swanson went on his way, blissfully unaware of the consequences of his thoughtless (but pretty innocent) actions.

When Alpha Kappa Alpha president, Makala McNeil, who is the current leader of a traditionally black sorority, spotted the offensive peel, all hell broke loose.

Apparently inferring that there was some racial element to the placement of the banana peel in a tree, McNeil and some of her friends were so upset that a scheduled Greek Life retreat was immediately cancelled. (Yes, you read that correctly.)

Martin Luther King Jr. – The Power of Non-violence

As an astute observer of history I can’t help but recognize that there is a pattern playing out again before our very eyes that we have seen before. A series of events that seam to be pushing the country ever further apart. This pattern is one of division and control. As I have said many times on my radio broadcast, the most effective way to bring this country down is to rip it apart from the inside. To have it tear itself apart piece by piece via the citizens themselves. It is for this reason I have taken part of an interview Martin Luther King Jr. did as well as parts from two speeches he gave and put them together so you can all hear from Reverend King himself about the power of non-violence in activism. His words echo through time from the 1960s straight through to today. We would all be wise to pay heed to what Reverend King had to say.

Wasserman Schultz Aide Pleads ‘Not Guilty’ As Prosecution Drops Hints About A Broader Probe Of Awan

Former U.S. House IT aide Imran Awan pleaded not guilty Friday to federal charges that he and his wife lied on an application for a home equity loan, as prosecutors dropped hints about a broader probe of Awan and his family members related to their computer work in recent years for Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) and a series of other Democratic lawmakers in the Congress.

A federal judge also agreed to return $9,000 seized from Awan when he was arrested at Dulles Airport in late July, as the feds and Awan’s legal team agreed to ensure that the money is used only to pay for the cost of Awan’s legal defense.

While the existing case against Awan and his wife, Hina Alvi, is related to whether they did not tell the truth on a loan application to a Capitol Hill credit union – documents in the matter again suggested at a larger investigation, possibly relating to more than just matters of bank fraud.

Red Cross Admits It Doesn't Know How Hurricane Harvey Donation Money Is Spent

Though the Red Cross has a historical reputation for providing relief to victims of natural disasters and other emergencies, the organization’s practices have tarnished its name over the last few years.

Amid the catastrophic earthquake in Haiti in 2010, the Red Cross reportedly accepted nearly $500 million in relief money but built only six homes with the funds even though they claimed they had provided homes to 130,000 people. These failures prompted some Haitians to advise the world against donating funds to the Red Cross.

The organization was accused of diverting resources and supplies to bolster its public image during Hurricane Sandy. As an investigation by NPR and ProPublica found:

“The Red Cross national headquarters in Washington ‘diverted assets for public relations purposes.’

A former Red Cross official managing the Sandy effort says 40 percent of available trucks were assigned to serve as backdrops for news conferences.”

Harvey Could Bankrupt The Federal Flood-Insurance Program

Hurricane Harvey may solve the auto industry’s inventory problem. But right now, it's about to create a giant headache for the federal government.

Based on the latest estimates from Irvine, California-based CoreLogic, insured flood losses for homes in the affected areas of Texas and Louisiana could total between $6.5 billion to $9.5 billion. Since private insurers typically don’t provide personal flood insurance, all but $500 million of that will fall to the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s National Flood Insurance Program, or NFIP.

UKIP Conference Cancelled After Threats by Alt Left Activists

A conference in Sheffield for the UK Independence Party’s young supporters has been cancelled after a campaign of threats and intimidation by Alt-Left activists, according to its organisers.

“It is with great reluctance that we have been forced to announce that the Young Independence #Horizons conference has been cancelled/postponed indefinitely,” reads an online letter from the YI executive council.

“Unfortunately, the Hard Left Stand Up to Racism organisation planned a protest at the hotel and has sent a large amount of abusive and threatening emails to Hilton Hotel staff. … The Hilton inform us that the quantity of emails that were of an aggressive nature was overwhelming and they decided that owing to an increased security risk posed by the Far Left to delegates, hotel guests and Hilton staff they have been left with very little option than to cancel the event.”

Can the BRICS hold back US war with North Korea?

As Russia and its BRICS partners convene this week, the organization faces a momentous test of its global influence: can it hold the line and insist on a diplomatic solution to the alarming US standoff with North Korea?
The ninth annual summit of the BRICS – Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa – comes at a critical time. Ahead of the two-day conference opening Sunday in China’s southern port city of Xiamen, Russian President Vladimir Putin published an article warning that the North Korea crisis is “on the brink of large-scale conflict.”

It just goes to show how precarious the situation has become and why President Putin’s warning about the region being on the brink of war is apt. The risk of misunderstanding is grave and increasing with each round of bellicose exchange.

Putin is absolutely right. The only way back from the precipice of a nuclear war is for all parties to hold direct dialogue without preconditions.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

We appear to have an absolutely no-win situation between an intransigent and bellicose Unhinged, Surveilled States of America, and a belligerent, unmoving North Korea.

The three guys, in this geopolitical mess I would call "The Adults in the Room", are Russia's President Putin; Russia's Foreign Ambassador Sergei Lavrov, and China's President Jingping.

And Putin is right; the only way back from the abyss is negotiations with zero preconditions; unfortunately, those in the bowels of US Deep State power in DC, will not see this situation in that way, even though millions of South Koreans will die in such an attack by the US against North Korea.

I wish I could see a scenario where war against North Korea will not take place, but that is pretty darned hard right now.

With this new North Korean detonation, look for the US presstitutes to be shilling that a military strike is the only answer, starting late today or early tomorrow, and hitting hard next week. Watch the number of times commercials aren't running, in order to force-focus the public's attention on this codswallop.

Just please remember the following warning, channeled through my "Inner Cynical Child": US citizens are "sold" wars just like they are sold cars, homes, bicycles, and bug spray. But let's not be buying this time, because we are looking at a potentially cataclysmic war, which may well turn into World War III.

Putin & Xi agree to ‘appropriately deal’ with N. Korea nuclear test – Xinhua

Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping have agreed to “appropriately deal” with the recent nuclear test conducted by North Korea, Chinese Xinhua news reports.

"The two leaders agreed to stick to the goal of denuclearization on the Korean Peninsula and keep close communication and coordination to deal with the new situation," the report says.

The presidents met in the southeastern Chinese city of Xiamen for the ninth BRICS summit, which is scheduled for September 3-5.

Korea tested hydrogen bomb that can be mounted on ICBM – state TV
Earlier in the day, the Russian Foreign Ministry condemned the North Korean test, adding that in a situation like this, it is essential “to keep composure and to restrain from any acts, which may lead to further escalation of tensions.”

The test is “another example of Pyongyang’s outright disregard” of UN Security Council resolutions and international law, the ministry said in a statement.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Sounds great, Presidents Putin and Jinping, but, please, what are the concrete steps you are hoping to take to achieve your goal here?!?

A little more elaboration would have been...helpful. But perhaps, they believe they are getting closer to this goal of denukelearising the Koran Peninsula through closed door, private negotiations, which I certainly hope and pray are ongoing.

US Treasury Department to Present to Trump New Sanctions Against North Korea

The US Treasury Department will submit to President Donald Trump a new package of sanctions against North Korea after the latest nuclear test by Pyongyang, the authority's secretary, Steven Mnuchin, said Sunday.
WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — The news about sanctions emerges after US President Donald Trump commented on the reports about the nuclear test, saying Pyongyang's "words and actions continue to be very hostile and dangerous to the United States."

"We have already started with sanctions against North Korea but I am going to draft a sanctions package to send to the president for his strong consideration," Mnuchin told the US Fox News broadcaster.

Mnuchin added that if other countries wanted to do business with North Korea, the United States would not engage in cooperation with them.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Sanctions are most generally preludes to war.

It is very important to notice other countries beside North Korea against which the Unhinged, Surveilled States of America has placed sanctions; these countries include Russia; China; and Iran.

I cannot tell you precisely when, but something wicked this way comes, in terms of a very aggressive USSA war trajectory against so many countries, and all at the same time.

Please, as I have said so many times on this blog that I sound like a chipped CD; prepare; plan; and practice what will be necessary to do in the event of a national emergency. Have potable food; water; and extra medications on hand. Only have as much money as you need in the bank to pay your bills. Get your bugout kit ready, and have a plan to connect with your loved ones, should you be apart.

Right now, I counsel patience, preparedness, and taking care of yourself and those you care about with as much ease as is humanly possible, under such conditions.

US, South Korea Consider ‘Effective Military Reponses’ to DPRK’s Nuclear Test

The top military officers of the United States and South Korea have discussed “effective military responses” that could show the military might of the allies in the wake of North Korea’s latest nuclear test on Sunday.

Gen. Joseph Dunford, chairman of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) and South Korea’s Gen. Jeong Kyeong-doo discussed on phone the enhancemnet of military cooperation between Seoul and Washington and joint response to North Korea, the Yonhap news agency reported.

The news came after Pyongyang announced it had conducted a test of a hydrogen bomb, which was successful, as no radiation leakage took place in the process. The Japanese NHK broadcaster confirmed the test was successful, adding that no breaches of nuclear materials to the outside occurred.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

To the top military officers of the United States and South Korea; how, please are you going to insure these 'effective military responses that could show the military might of the allies' are not perceived as a prelude to war against North Korea?!?

The short answer, gentlemen, is... you cannot.

The Strangest Ways Americans Die in all 50 States

The leading causes of death tend to be the same across the country. A majority of deaths are due to heart disease, followed by cancer and chronic lower respiratory disease. However, some causes of death affect some state residents far more than others.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently released a report, “The Most Distinctive Causes of Death by State, 2001-2010,” detailing causes of death most out of proportion to national rates. In some states, the results are intuitive. In others, unusually common causes of death are much more surprising.

Rohingya beheaded, burned alive in Myanmar: Witnesses

Government forces in Myanmar have beheaded and burned alive Rohingya Muslim civilians, including children, witnesses say, as calls grow to stop the “genocide” against the minority Muslims living in the Buddhist-majority country.

Myanmar’s Rakhine State, where the minority Rohingya are concentrated, has been the scene of violence by the army. Before a military siege was imposed on Rakhine late last year, extremist Buddhists would attack the Muslims.

The Independent cited eyewitnesses in a report on Saturday as giving “horrific accounts of violence and destruction” by Myanmarese soldiers and other unidentified armed groups.

The report cited a man named Abdul Rahman as saying that he had survived a five-hour attack on Chut Pyin Village.

He said a group of Rohingya men had been arrested and detained in a bamboo hut, which was then set on fire.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I never thought, this lifetime, that I would have a legitimate reason to say, "Watch out; here come the Buddhists!!"

Apparently, I have misjudged the potential for viciousness as an expression this ultra-nationalistic "flavor" of Buddhism in Myanmar, as we have witnessed in this ongoing genocide.

The people doing this killing cast an horrific, blood-stained shadow upon their faith, and that shadow may well exist in perpetuity, unless, and until Ang Sang Su Kyi orders these actions to stop against the Rohingya,
IF she has the guts to do it.

If you want to donate money to a charitable organisation, please avoid the Red Cross as though it were the plague!!

The Salvation Army has an excellent reputation for putting contributors' money toward the causes for which it was earmarked.

Also, check with your local religious institutions which have a reputation for getting money where it is needed; you may want to do it through those institutions as well.

But if you can give anything for the victims of Harvey in Texas and Louisiana, please do so; these people have survived a tragedy of Biblical proportions.

Three Dangerous Delusions About Korea

So then, what are the prospects Washington could jump off the hamster wheel and come up with something besides threats and sanctions? The omens are not auspicious.

De-Dollarization Accelerates: China Readies Yuan-Priced Crude Oil Benchmark Backed By Gold

The world’s top oil importer, China, is preparing to launch a crude oil futures contract denominated in Chinese yuan and convertible into gold, potentially creating the most important Asian oil benchmark and allowing oil exporters to bypass U.S.-dollar denominated benchmarks by trading in yuan, Nikkei Asian Review reports.

The crude oil futures will be the first commodity contract in China open to foreign investment funds, trading houses, and oil firms. The circumvention of U.S. dollar trade could allow oil exporters such as Russia and Iran, for example, to bypass U.S. sanctions by trading in yuan, according to Nikkei Asian Review.

To make the yuan-denominated contract more attractive, China plans the yuan to be fully convertible in gold on the Shanghai and Hong Kong exchanges.

This is going to be an industrial sucker-punch to the gut of the US economy.

"Appeasement Will Not Work": Trump Responds To North Korea's 6th Nuclear Test

Following remarks from the leaders of South Korea and Japan, President Donald Trump has responded to North Korea's latest "perfect" nuclear test, emphasizing that South Korea's "talk of appeasement will not work," and that Kim Jong Un and his government "only understand one thing!" He added that the nuclear test is an embarrassment...to China.

North Korea claims successful test of 'missile-ready' nuclear bomb – live

Boris Johnson has warned there “no easy military solution” to preventing North Korea escalating its nuclear aggression but said all options were still on the table for retaliation after the regime’s nuclear weapons rest.

The foreign secretary said it was not clear how a military response from the West would be possible, given the proximity of the South Korean capital Seoul to the North Korean border.

Any military challenge to Kim Jong-Un’s regime could come at huge cost to civilian lives in South Korea, Johnson said.

“It’s certainly our view that none of the military options are good,” he told reporters after North Korea announced it had tested a powerful hydrogen bomb that could be loaded on to an intercontinental ballistic missile

Webmaster's Commentary: 

President Trump, a word, please: this is not the time for a chest-beating, orangutangian display of military force; it is a time for the "Adults in the Room" for Western and Eastern civilised societies to take stock of what diplomatic solutions they have at their disposal, which can break the stalemate here.

A decap strike on North Korea could well result in the deaths of hundreds of thousands of South Korean citizens, if not worse, when the smoke clears; that is not the price, I would hope, you would find acceptable for regime change in North Korea.

Chinese leadership has stated very clearly, recently, that they will not allow regime change in North Korea; so if there is a military attack against North Korea, the obvious implication from the Chinese is that they will come to North Korea's assistance militarily.

And Mr. President, I feel the need, again, to politely remind you that right now, the US military doesn't have the troop strength; the weaponry; the manufacturing, or the budget to insure a positive outcome in a conventional war against Russia over North Korea.

So if a military attack, in a cost/benefit scenario, will be so undeniably bloody as to be a thoroughly horrible, unusable option, what you are left with, sir is... negotiations.

This is a moment to bring the US, China, North and South Korea, and Japan to the table and hammer out a peace treaty, to replace the armistice and give North Korea free and unfettered, unsanctioned trade with the rest of the world, with the quid pro quo being North Korea's abandonment of its nuclear program.

Also, publicly, you, Secretary of State Tillerson, and Sec Def Mattis, need to at least appear to be on the same page on the issue regarding North Korea's accelerating nuclear weapons program.

Leadership around the world needs to understand that the United States speaks with one voice on this issue, and the the message here is clear, and unambiguous.

Public School Teachers Behind Violent Antifa Group

Public school teachers are behind a leading far-left militant group that is part of the Antifa network that federal officials say is committing “domestic terrorist violence.”

By Any Means Necessary, which has played a key role in riots in Berkeley, Sacramento and elsewhere, has dozens of public school teachers among its members, including among its most prominent leaders.

The FBI and Department of Homeland Security began paying closer attention to Antifa groups in general after BAMN and other extremists started a riot and attacked marchers at a white nationalist rally in Sacramento last July, Politico reported on Friday. The Sacramento violence left at least 10 people hospitalized, several of whom had knife wounds.

One of BAMN’s most prominent organizers is Yvette Felarca, a Berkeley middle school teacher and pro-violence militant. Felarca currently faces charges of inciting a riot for her role in the Sacramento violence.

Washington Is Preparing for Nuclear War in Europe

Amid mounting military and diplomatic tensions between the US and Russia, the German daily Süddeutsche Zeitung reported Friday that the American Congress has taken the first steps toward Washington’s annulling of the Intermediate Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty.

The INF, or Washington Treaty on Mid-range Nuclear Systems, is a bilateral agreement reached between the United States and the Soviet Union on the decommissioning of short- and mid-range missiles (with a range of between 500 and 5,500 miles), and the banning of their production.

The treaty, signed on 8 December 1987 by US President Ronald Reagan and Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev, led to a significant reduction of US nuclear weapons in Europe. The nuclear-armed mid-range Pershing II missiles, whose stationing in Western Europe five years earlier had triggered the largest peace demonstrations to that point in history, were withdrawn.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why in the name of all that's holy, would Putin want to invade the Baltics?!?

The guy is many things, but there two things he isn't, and those are stupid and impulsive.

Here's the info on these drills, scheduled to run from 14 through 20 September of this year:

Russia Plans Huge Zapad 2017 Military Exercises With Belarus

These drills have gone off without a hitch, in years before, so why the hype about this year's Zapad drills?!?

If I were a betting person, I would not bet against some kind of "false flag" created by either NATO and/or the US, then blamed on Russia, as the "trigger incident" to get such a war going.

The Deep Staters in the Unhinged, Surveilled States of America, want to see a war happen, (any war), to precede the collapse of the US economy, and act as a distraction from it.

Magicians do this all the time; in that trade, it is called "misdirection".

Unfortunately, the "misdirection" the US Deep Staters are planning comes with horrific costs in blood and money.

Is U.S. Congress Declaring War on WikiLeaks?

The latest Senate Intelligence Authorization Act (SB 1761), which was released by the committee on August 18 when few senators were in town, is in the nature of a routine document. It notably calls for “more” in terms of both probing and revealing Russian spying and alleged aggression, but that was to be expected due to the current panic over Moscow and its intentions. It will nevertheless almost certainly become law even though few members of congress will actually bother to read any part of it. The bill has already been approved by the Senate Intelligence Committee and will likely go immediately to a vote in the full Senate when that body reconvenes after the August recess. It will almost certainly be approved unanimously.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF Senator Wyden had substituted the word "embarrassment" for the word "damage", he would be bang spot on.

And to answer the question at the top of the article, the short answer is, unequivocally, yes; Congress wants find a way to sidestep, if not eviscerate, the First Amendment just as intensely as it can, so no real truth can ever again compete with the Deep State's agendas and narratives, which many times have absolutely no relationship to the truth of what they are doing.

Anyone reading this remember how Bush lied about "Saddam Hussein's weapons of mass destruction" in order to push American into a war with Iraq, when the real objective was controlling its pipelines, and insure that the only money for which the oil was sold was the US dollar?

This kind of Deep State agenda is consistently ongoing, which is why we appear to be on the brink of war against Russia, China, Iran, and North Korea,and God only knows against who else.

The hard truth about what this country has become since 9/11, with the stripping down of the fundamental freedoms and responsibilities accorded us by the Constitution and Bill of Rights;surveillance in every home, cell phone and computer, coupled with these incessant wars for global hegemony, has, many times, been difficult to write about.

But that being said, I will continue to speak out against where I believe my government is not acting in the best interests of We the People, document it as well as I can, and share it on this blog.

But this bill, should it pass with the following language still there, "WikiLeaks and the senior leadership of WikiLeaks resemble a non-state hostile intelligence service often abetted by state actors and should be treated as such a service by the United States.”,will conclusively be the death knell for free speech in this country, and open the door for intense prosecution of those who post on information line which does not conform to the Deep State's liking; and that will put this country, and the world, in a very dangerous place indeed.

Fitch Downgrades Venezuela’s Rating to CC, Notes Great Risk of Default

"Fitch Ratings has taken the following rating actions on Venezuela's sovereign ratings: long-term foreign and local currency IDRs downgraded to 'CC' from 'CCC'; senior unsecured debt downgraded to ‘CC’ from ‘CCC’; short-term foreign and local currency IDRs affirmed at 'C'; country ceiling downgraded to 'CC' from 'CCC,'" Fitch said in a statement.
The agency pointed out that the threat of default was caused by the new US sanctions against Venezuela.

"Venezuela's downgrade reflect Fitch's view that a default is probable given the further reduction in financing options for the Government of Venezuela following the imposition of additional sanctions on Venezuela by the US government on Aug. 25, 2017," the statement added.

The sanctions ban US citizens from or entities from a number of financial transactions with the Venezuelan government of the country’s PDVSA oil and gas company.

Turkey's Erdogan Calls Killing of Rohingya in Myanmar Genocide

Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan said on Friday that the death of hundreds of Rohingya in Myanmar over the past week constituted a genocide aimed at Muslim communities in the region.

Nearly 400 people have died in fighting that has rocked Myanmar's northwest for a week, new official data showed, making it probably the deadliest bout of violence to engulf the country's Rohingya Muslim minority in decades.

"There is a genocide there. They remain silent towards this... All those looking away from this genocide carried out under the veil of democracy are also part of this massacre," Erdogan said at his ruling AK Party's Eid al-adha celebrations in Istanbul.

The army says it is conducting clearance operations against "extremist terrorists" to protect civilians.

Erdogan, with his roots in political Islam, has long striven to take a position of leadership among the world's Muslim community. He said it was Turkey's moral responsibility to take a stand against the events in Myanmar.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Erdogan is correct in his assessment here; and although he is not a politician for whom I have a great deal of respect, after watching the repression under which the Kurdish Turks have had to live under his watch, he is right to make this statement.

But it is going to take concerted efforts on the part of Myanmar politicians and military, to ratchet the tensions down here. I am quite certain that there have been atrocities on both sides of the conflict. And if the Rohingya Muslim minority are fighting back, it is because they are at the end of their collective rope, at the violence visited upon them by the Myanmar military.

And please note: I am not agreeing with this violence; I am simply stating that I understand how this can happen.

And this morning, we have the following disturbing story, posted at the South China Post On-line:

Rohingya Refugees heeding the Call to Arms, and Returning to Myanmar

And I call out to Aung San Suu Kyi; because of the terrible prosecution against the Myanmar Rohingya by your Buddhist military, they are now ready to take their fight to Naypyidaw, the capital of your state.

So if you do not want a civil war in your country, there need to be cease-fire talks, and immediately, creating an unbreakable assurance the Rohingya will be treated as brother and sister human beings, and not "less than."

The world is watching what is going on in Myanmar, Aung San Suu Kyi: and the world is waiting to know how you will create a peace between both the Rohingya Muslims, and the majority Buddhists.

Russia & BRICS to counter 'excessive domination' of certain few reserve currencies - Putin

Russia wants to promote economic cooperation within the BRICS format. According to Russian President Vladimir Putin, there has been a number of practical achievements in the work of the five-nation bloc.
BRICS is the acronym for an association of five major emerging national economies of Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa.

In an open letter published ahead of the 9th BRICS Summit in China, Putin expressed confidence the BRICS countries will continue to act against protectionism and new barriers to global trade.

“We value the BRICS countries’ consensus on this issue, which allows us to more consistently advocate the foundations of an open, equal and mutually beneficial multilateral trade system and to strengthen the role of the WTO as the key regulator in international trade,” wrote Putin.

DA LAUNCHES CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION INTO ILLEGAL ARREST OF UTAH NURSE

The Utah police have issued an apology after a video went viral of one of their own assaulting a nurse after she refused to draw blood from a patient who was unconscious at the University Hospital. The incident is alleged to have occurred at the end of July and the video shows the nurse, Alex Wubbels (above in blue), being arrested by officer Jeff Payne.

When watching the video you can see the moment that the officer seemed to have had enough is when the superior of Wubbels tells him that he is making 'a big mistake,' to which Payne responds by making it even worse and illegally detaining the nurse.

The police department claims that an investigation has been launched into the incident and they've issued an apology to the hospital.
Many people have called for Payne to be placed on leave, to be fired, and/or to receive some psychological evaluation. Someone who appears to be that mentally unstable is probably not well suited to be in such a position of authority.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I wonder if this officer was on some kind of antidepressant medication.

60% of Americans on prescription drugs

Just starting on this medication, or getting off of it, can cause tremendous impulse control issues.

It's Not Over: The Terrible Aftermath of Hurricane Harvey

It's time to focus on the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey and the largest rainfall ever to hit the continental United States. We must remember that a disaster doesn't end when the initial event is over. It's a series of cascading events, and Hurricane Harvey has proven this to be true yet again.

Here are the stats:

About 70% of Harris County's 1,777 square miles was covered with 1½ feet of water at some point after the deluge, flooding about 136,000 buildings, according to county officials.

...the storm killed at least 47 people, forced the rescue of more than 72,000 and caused as much as a $100 billion in damage.

And the real trouble is just beginning for the victims of the storm.

COP ROUGHS UP AND ARRESTS UTAH NURSE FOR NOT OBEYING HIS ILLEGAL ORDER TO DRAW BLOOD FROM UNCONSCIOUS MAN

Salt Lake City police detective Jeff Payne didn't have a warrant to draw blood from an injured patient at the University of Utah Hospital’s burn unit. He also didn't have the patient's consent to draw blood. And the patient was not under arrest. That means none of three conditions that would allow the hospital to draw blood from the patient had been met, so Nurse Alex Wubbels calmly refused the Detective Payne's order.

Regulatory Laxness Exacerbated Hurricane Harvey’s Environmental Nightmare

Flood-prone Houston was woefully unprepared for days of torrential rainfall. Its drainage system can’t handle it.

Its regulatory policy is lax. Its overdevelopment eliminated green space. Its damaged oil refining, fuel and chemical facilities exacerbated the disaster, turning much of the area into a toxic swamp, land, air and water affected – certain to gravely harm public health.

The International Business Times (IBT) said “Texas Republicans helped chemical (company Arkema) lobby against safety rules” – likely contributing to two August 31 explosions at its Crosby plant, 25 miles from Houston, releasing toxic smoke and chemicals into the air and water.

“The effort to stop the chemical plant safety rules was backed by top Texas Republican lawmakers, who have received big campaign donations from chemical industry donors,” IBT explained.

Russia warns US against using force over North Korea

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has urged Washington not to use force against North Korea, as tensions surged after the latest missile test by Pyongyang.

In a phone call late Wednesday with US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Lavrov "underscored... the need to refrain from any military steps that could have unpredictable consequences," the foreign ministry in Moscow said.

Russia´s lead diplomat said any attempts to toughen sanctions against North Korea would be "counterproductive and dangerous" while condemning Pyongyang´s firing of a missile over Japan as a "gross violation" of United Nations resolutions.

Russian foreign ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova at a briefing on Thursday warned that "the contest of force that is now being demonstrated, will only lead the region to the brink of a military conflict."

She pushed for holding peace talks to cool down the situation, saying that "at the moment only Russia and China have put forward a realistic initiative."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Zakharova is entirely right to be calling for peace talks; such actions are the only thing which can ratchet down the tensions here.

But Xi Jinping has got to reason with North Korea's Kim Jung Un about his over the top rhetoric, like his news agency making the announcement that North Korea is starting "...a Pacific offensive", as happened this morning.

That is just not helping anything become more calm.

How Media Obscure US/Saudi Responsibility for Killing Yemeni Civilians

A coalition of Saudi Arabia, the United States, the United Kingdom and the United Arab Emirates, with minor support from several other Middle Eastern nations, has relentlessly bombed Yemen since March 2015. This August, the coalition ramped up the ferocity of its airstrikes, killing dozens of civilians.

On August 23, the US/Saudi coalition bombed a hotel near Yemen’s capital Sanaa, killing 41 people, 33 of whom—80 percent—were civilians, according to the United Nations.

Then on August 25, the coalition bombed homes in Sanaa, massacring a dozen civilians, including eight members of the same family.

Major Western media outlets have, however, obscured the responsibility Saudi Arabia, and its US and European supporters, bear for launching these airstrikes.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This horrific war is something the presstitutes and whorespondents don't want you to see.

Enabled by the US military, the Saudi military are killing Yemeni infants, children, women, and the medically fragile elderly.

Images: Yemeni children murdered and maimed for life, from Saudi bombing runs.

The Saudis, working in concert with US troops, are blockading the ports, to prevent any food from getting in, leading to massive malnutrition, and deaths of Yemeni children.

Images: Yemeni children starving to death from malnutrition

And now, Yemen is experiencing one of the worst plagues of cholera (possibly weaponised) in the world's history:

Images: Yemeni children suffering and dying from cholera

And if this not enough insult to injury being poured on the Yemeni people, the Saudis are using DU weapons in Yemen, which poisons children in the womb, and creates massive physical defects:

Images: Yemeni children suffering from intense birth defects, due to exposure to depleted uranium.

I would like to politely suggest to those who read this blog, that these actions are being done in your name, and with your tax dollars.

I believe that Americans need to come together, and have a national dialogue as to whether there is a moral and just cause for this wanton genocide of the Yemeni people, courtesy of Saudi Arabia, which the US government is enabling militarily.

I, for one, say, absolutely not!!

IAEA: Iran Complying With Nuclear Deal

n their latest monthly statement on the P5+1 nuclear deal, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has once again confirmed that Iran is in total compliance with the deal, and that its low-enriched uranium stockpile is well within limits.

This is the statement they’ve issued every time since the deal was implemented, but comes at an increasingly important time, as President Trump has repeatedly claimed he considers Iran to be in violation is some non-specific way.

It also comes amid calls from US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley for the IAEA to inspect all of Iran’s conventional military facilities, to try to look for some violations. The IAEA, however, has insisted that there is no need for this.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Ambassador Haley has proven herself an absolute, consummate embarrassment to the Trump administration, by attempting to go after issues regarding Iran, which were never part of the original P5+1 deal.

Unless the Administration has something highly specific that they can point to, this witch hunt against Iran should be over by now.

But of course, it will not be over, because Israel's Netanyahu is very keen on regime change in Tehran, but let me remind you, only at the costs of American blood, and American money.

So look for some horrific false flag to be blamed on Iran, and off we go to war against it; this will, of course, nearly certainly mean war against Russia, which has promised to defend Iran, should it be attacked militarily.

UN Warns US Inflicting ‘Unacceptable’ Civilian Casualties in Raqqa Strikes

The US recently spurned a call by the UN to temporarily halt airstrikes on the Syrian city of Raqqa to allow civilians to flee. That call had come after multiple instances of US strikes killing civilians in and around the city.

Today, UN officials are warning that the city’s population is paying an “unacceptable price” from the US airstrikes, and that continued US bombardment may be in violation of international law as a result. The US has been trying to back an invasion of Raqqa against ISIS.

US officials have insisted they are taking utmost care to avoid civilian deaths. In reality, however, the Pentagon’s main effort in keeping the official death toll down has been to deliver preposterously low undercounts of how many they’ve killed in reports.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US government and military don't give a damn about civilian casualties, which will spike, and soon; it's all about completing the agenda here, and the horrific toll in "collateral damage" doesn't matter.

Pentagon Announces Mystery Escalation of Afghan War

Less than a day after Pentagon officials quoted Defense Secretary James Mattis as insisting the US military would do a better job with transparency on troop levels, they’ve thrown that plan entirely out the window. Mattis has now signed orders on a planned escalation of the Afghan War.

The US had falsely claimed 8,400 troops were in Afghanistan, and corrected that yesterday to “about 11,000.” These new orders make that corrected figure obsolete, as the US is offering no details on the size of this new force being deployed.

The lack of figures should be unsurprising, as just last week President Trump insisted that the troop levels would not be made public, claiming the “enemy must never know.” Still, it makes Mattis’ comments just yesterday all the more bizarre, as he surely would’ve known the escalation was coming.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

(Sigh) It appears that the Trump administration is doubling down on what hasn't worked in the last 16 years, due to this institutionalized fear of "not winning" this war.

I am having a very difficult time figuring why Sec Def Mattis, who should, with his very distinguished military career, know better than to do this, is doing it anyway.

But this cannot be seen as in any way a logical response to what is happening on the ground here.

North Korea Declares Start of Pacific Offensive Amid Missile Standoff

North Korea's Foreign Ministry said Friday the recent missile launch marked the beginning of a military operation in the Pacific, according to state media.

In a message carried by the KCNA news agency, the Foreign Ministry hit back at the United Nations for saying Tuesday’s launch of a ballistic missile over northern Japan undermined regional security.
Pyongyang said it rejected UN criticism as a violation of its right as a sovereign nation to defend itself against the United States and South Korea and promised to launch more projectiles into the Pacific.

The two allies have been engaged in a string of military exercises, called Ulchi — Freedom Guardian, allegedly to improve the South’s defenses. The annual drills on land, air and sea have been routinely slammed by the North as a preparation for invasion.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF the above statement is true (and heaven only knows how accurate the translation was from Korean into English), we have an immovable force (North Korea) duking it out with an irresistible object (The US, South Korea, and Japan).

And while Russia and China are doing their level best to ratchet down tensions here, the US government appears, collectively, to have their fingers in their ears, and adamantly will not consider the proposals they have put forward.

Ren Guoqiang also reiterated China’s position that the North Korean crisis should be resolved through dialogue, and insisted on the denuclearization of the peninsula, according to Sina, citing the spokesman. Russia also insists that there cannot be any military solution to the crisis on the Korean Peninsula. At the latest UNSC meeting, Russia’s permanent representative to the UN, Vasily Nebenzya, reiterated Beijing and Moscow’s ‘double freeze’ initiative, recommending Pyongyang halt all nuclear and missile tests while the US and South Korea cease the military build-up in the region. On Thursday, the Chinese Foreign Ministry also expressed concern, saying that the Korean issue is serious and not a computer game, Reuters reports, citing the ministry’s spokeswoman, Hua Chunying. During a previous news briefing, Hua responded to British Prime Minister Theresa May’s call on Beijing to exert more pressure on Pyongyang voiced during her trip to Japan on Wednesday. Hua also questioned whether other relevant parties implement the UN resolutions “without holding back anything.” “They are the loudest when it comes to sanctions, but nowhere to be found when it comes to making efforts to promote peace talks. They want nothing to do with responsibility,” Hua told reporters on Wednesday.

IF the US, South Korea, and Japan attack North Korea, China, in this statement, has made it very clear that they will defend North Korea against such an attack.

And unfortunately, looking at this situation, it appears to be a matter of "when", rather than "if" such an attack will take place.

US Releases 500,000 Barrels Of Oil From Strategic Reserve As Largest US Refinery May Be Shut For 2 Weeks

The U.S. Energy Department announced on Thursday that it would release 500,000 barrels of crude oil from the US Strategic Petroleum Reserve as a result of the disruption to the US petroleum industry following Hurricane Harvey amid fears of a surge in motor fuel prices, which have been compounded by the previously reported shuttering of the Colonial pipeline. According to the DOE statement, the oil will be delivered to the Phillips 66 refinery in Lake Charles, Louisiana, a plant which has not been affected by the storm.

Situation on Korean Peninsula on Brink of Large-Scale Conflict - Putin

The situation on the Korean peninsula has escalated and is now on the edge of the full-scale military conflict, Russian President Vladimir Putin said, adding that the problem must be solved through dialogue.

"I have to say a few words about the situation on the Korean Peninsula, where tensions have grown recently and the situation is balancing on the brink of a large-scale conflict. Russia believes that the policy of putting pressure on Pyongyang to stop its nuclear missile programme is misguided and futile," Putin said in an article published by leading media of BRICS states on the threshold of the BRICS summit that will be held in the southeastern Chinese city of Xiamen on September 3-5.
The president pointed out that the problem must be solved through a dialogue without provocations and pressure.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am hoping that the US/South Korean military drills, which technically ended yesterday, will ratchet down the tensions somewhat.

Unfortunately, if Kim Jong Un orders another missile test, and soon, all bets are off. As reported at atimes.com, dateline yesterday:

Southern Poverty Law Center Transfers Millions in Cash to Offshore Entities

The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), a liberal, Alabama-based 501(c)(3) tax-exempt charitable organization that has gained prominence on the left for its "hate group" designations, pushes millions of dollars to offshore entities as part of its business dealings, records show.

Additionally, the nonprofit pays lucrative six-figure salaries to its top directors and key employees while spending little on legal services despite its stated intent of "fighting hate and bigotry" using litigation, education, and other forms of advocacy.

The Southern Poverty Law Center is perhaps best known for its "hate map," a collection of organizations the nonprofit deems "domestic hate groups" that lists mainstream conservative organizations alongside racist groups such as the Ku Klux Klan and is often referenced in the media. A gunman opened fire at the Washington, D.C., offices of the conservative Family Research Council in 2012 after seeing it listed as an "anti-gay" group on SPLC's website.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is amazing how powerful people are able to transmute what have been essentially charitable contributions to their cause into a financial empire by stashing a lot of that money offshore; this appears to be precisely just what Morris Dees has done,probably, thanks to the help of an incredible forensic accountant, who has made the paper trail for these transfers..... disappear.

And to all who contributed to the various arms of this organisation, like Friends of the Center; Planned Giving; Employer matching; and donated gifts of stocks & securities; you most likely have been scammed by these people!!

Stockholm on Lockdown As Police Officer Stabbed in Neck By Moroccan Youth

It is reported the assailant snuck up behind the officer and cut his neck. The attack has been called completely unprovoked in Swedish media.

While the officer was conscious and able to sit up on his own as the ambulance arrived. He was discharged from the hospital Thursday afternoon having sustained only minor injuries.

The attack comes just hours after Swedish police were the subject of another potentially deadly attack Thursday morning, again in Stockholm. Officers were called to a bogus burglar alarm in a suburb to the south of the city, and upon arriving instead of finding a householder in distress, their car was pelted with heavy stones from a 10th floor flat in a tower block.

One of the officers, a police dog handler came close to being killed when his vehicle was struck, reports Expressen. Police were able to raid the apartment and arrested one for attempted murder, but a second suspect remains on the run.

Leak Project’s Rex Bear says that the city is a “madhouse” and wishes people “good luck” with finding any gas after an industry insider gave him the scoop on the current gas shortage plaguing Texas.

Bear said that he talked to a gas station owner who told him that it is probably going to be ‘at least seven to ten days’ before fuel shipments arrive.

NOVARTIS TO CHARGE $475,000 FOR $20,000 CANCER CURE FUNDED BY TAXPAYERS AND CHARITY

While Americans squabble over irrelevant political diversions, a revolutionary breakthrough in human healthcare has yielded its first FDA approval - a therapy that literally cures otherwise incurable leukemia.

It is the first of many therapies that re-engineer human cells in living patients to reprogram more resilient immune systems and even repair damaged or aging organs.

Literally on her deathbed in 2012, Emily Whitehead has been cancer free after receiving treatment in clinical trials funded by charity. The media is now rewriting history, attributing the breakthrough and thriving patients like Emily Whitehead to Novartis.

MIT's Technology Review, in an article titled, "FDA Approves Groundbreaking Gene Therapy for Cancer: The treatment will be sold by Novartis for $475,000," would report:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation; this therapy will be available only for the super-rich with leukemia, and for no one else, because ordinary working Americans cannot possibly afford it.

Way to Go, NOVARTIS!! Profits uber alles, RIGHT?!?!?

FLORIDA DEM WHO OFFERED TO PERSONALLY KILL ASSANGE APPEARS WITH DEBBIE WASSERMAN SCHULTZ

Disobedient Media previously reported that Florida Democrat Evan Ross had offered to personally kill Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, as well as Edward Snowden. Ross responded to our coverage by redoubling his threats. The report at the time indicated that Ross was a member of the Democratic Party, and had at one time served as the leader of the young Democrats. However, at that time there was no evidence of contact between Ross and Debbie Wasserman Schultz.

The initial statements offering to personally execute Wikileaks founder Julian Assange were posted by Ross via Twitter. In our previous coverage, Disobedient Media noted that Ross appeared to have been very well connected within the Democratic party establishment, having posted pictures to social media posing with Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton and her running mate Tim Kaine.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In every step of its devolution, the DNC has sunken into a mafia-like level of criminality which absolutely boggles the mind.

I am reminded of a line delivered by the Sherlock character in the TV series "Elementary". characterizing his father to the Watson character, as someone "who had assassins on speed dial."

Apparently, and quite publicly, the DNC can now honestly be said to have the same.

CIA-FUNDED WASHINGTON POST SMEARS INDIE MEDIA FOR COVERING DNC FRAUD LAWSUIT

Back in May, comedian and Youtuber Jimmy Dore released a video titled “Washington Post Caught Blatantly Lying To Their Readers Yet Again” about one of the many, many deceptions that WaPo has been caught inflicting upon their unsuspecting audience. Dore pointed out that while corporate media reporters have long served as guard dogs for the establishment, in today’s environment where plutocratic CIA contractors can openly buy up media to advance blatant propaganda, those reporters have now become attack dogs for the establishment. As an example of this new breed of establishment attack dogs who go out of their way to smear and discredit all dissenting voices, Dore named amoral Bezos android Dave Weigel, who then spent months attacking both Dore and his writers.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Hey, if it is OK, in the opinion of Judge William Zloch, who dismissed the case against the DNC, to hack and stack primaries, to insure that people have no real choice in their candidates, why do we have primaries at all, when they are pretty certain to be fixed before one primary vote is cast?!?

To quote William Shakespeare, "Aye, there's the rub!!"

The DNC broke every bloody rule in the book to insure that Hillary was their candidate, and by the most foul, immoral, dirty, and contentious behaviour one can imagine.

To have done this demonstrates that the collaborators involved have the morals of a dead tree stump (and I am going to get complaints from dead tree stumps on this!!), and have all had their consciences surgically removed.

BUT, apparently, in the eyes of Judge Zloch, all this was perfectly OK.

Democrat Chief Just Admitted To Everything!

A veteran Democrat chief election official in Florida has conceded in court that noncitizens and felons possibly voted, in a case that could have national implications for how localities clean up voter rolls.

Broward County Elections Supervisor Brenda Snipes is defending her office against a lawsuit brought by the American Civil Rights Union, a conservative legal group that contends there are more voters registered on Broward’s rolls than there are eligible voters in the county.

Those rolls are said to be inflated with not only noncitizens and felons, but also other ineligible people who have voted illegally.

FBI, DHS STUDY REVEALS ANTIFA AS "PRIMARY INSTIGATORS OF VIOLENCE AT PUBLIC RALLIES" SINCE APRIL 2016

President Trump was crucified by the mainstream media a few weeks back after hosting an improvised press conference and saying there was "blame on both sides" for the violence in Charlottesville that resulted in the death of a counterprotester. The comments resulted in most of Trump's advisory councils being disbanded, as CEO's around the country pounced on the opportunity to distance themselves from the administration, and heightened calls from CNN for impeachment proceedings.

The problem is that while Trump's delivery probably could have been a bit more artful, the underlying message seems to be proving more accurate with each passing day and each new outbreak of Antifa violence.

As Politico points out today, previously unreported FBI and Department of Homeland Security studies found that "anarchist extremist" group like Antifa have been the "primary instigators of violence at public rallies" going back to at least April 2016 when the reports were first published.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why am I totally unsurprised by this assessment?!?

President Trump was absolutely, completely correct when he made the observation he did, and then got crucified for it, big-time, courtesy of the presstitute media.
