Trump aide sparks fury for tweeting 4yo video from Ukraine & presenting it as ?URRENT Hamas strikes

Donald Trump’s senior campaign adviser has been slammed for spreading “misinformation” online, after posting a four-year-old video of military action in Ukraine and claiming it was evidence of Hamas rocket launches against Israel.

“650 Rockets being fired into Israel from Gaza in an attempt to overwhelm Israels Iron Dome: 173 intercepts, 4 people killed, and 28 wounded,” Katrina Pierson wrote in a tweet, with a video showing a barrage of rockets fired into the sky.

While Pierson wanted to attack Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-MN) who defended Palestinians during a recent confrontation with Israel, she was immediately slammed online for spearheading a false narrative. The video she posted, the twiteratti pointed out, actually came from Ukraine and was recorded in 2015 at the height of the conflict in Donbass.

Sports League Rejects Transgender Athlete’s Claim to Female Weightlifting Records

A weightlifting league has revoked awards to a transgender weightlifter who claimed to have broken several women’s weightlifting records.

“Our rules, and the basis of separating genders for competition, are based on physiological classification rather thana identification,” said a statement from Paul Bossi, president of 100% RAW Powerlifting Federation. Bossi continued:

On the basis of all information presented to the Board of Directors for this particular case, the conclusion made, is that the correct physiological classification is male … Since the lifter’s gender classification for the purpose of our rules is not consistent with female, no female records will be broken by these lifts.

Planned Parenthood Supporters Taunt Pro-Life Campus Group With Abortion Songs, Chants

Planned Parenthood supporters taunted a pro-life group with abortion chants and songs and boasted about having abortions at a Texas university last month.

Students for Life posted a video this week of the incident on April 9 at the University of Texas-San Antonio. The organization had put out 911 pink crosses to create a "Cemetery of the Innocents," as a symbol for the number of abortions performed daily by Planned Parenthood. In the video, a half-dozen people brandishing "I Stand With Planned Parenthood Signs" stood in the middle of the grassy area, with students milling around in the middle of the day.

"I had an abortion!" one woman yelled to cheers as she ran into the cemetery, jokingly pointing at one cross and saying "there's mine right there."

"I just love to have sex and to abort fetuses, that's my number one kink," another woman said.

Boeing Hushed Info About Safety Alert Problems With 737 MAX for YEAR - Reports

The US-based company came under scrutiny after two of its best-selling jets crashed within five months, killing 346 people. After media leaks pointed to Boeing’s dodgy behaviour after the Lion Air disaster last October, new reports have suggested that the aviation giant was not forthcoming about its new plane’s faulty alert system with airlines.

Industry and government officials, cited by The Wall Street Journal, said that Chicago-based Boeing Co. knew that there was a problem with the cockpit safety alert on 737 MAX jets for a year before one of them crashed in Indonesia in October 2018. Nevertheless, it did not reportedly provide some carriers and pilots with consistent explanations even after the first tragedy and became “more forthcoming” with airlines only after the second 737 MAX crashed in Ethiopia.

Senate Dems Delete Embarrassing Poll Showing 70% Prefer Kavanaugh Over RBG

Well that didn't work out as planned...

Assuming their own echo chamber would provide an 'obvious' conclusion, providing self-aggrandizing virtue signaling ammunition for the next news cycle attack on the vast right-wing conspiracy, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee tweeted out a simple poll to its 107,000 followers:

"Do you want more Supreme Court justices like Ruth Bader Ginsburg or do you want more justices like Brett Kavanaugh?"

1933 Banker Plot to Remove FDR Was a Ruse

The Illuminati bankers staged the coup to give FDR credibility as Wall Street's nemesis. As I will show, they routinely used such tricks to build up their Presidential puppets.

The conspirators (members of the "American Liberty League") approached retired Major General Smedley Butler to use 500,000 veterans to remove FDR and become a Mussolini-like figure.

butler-medals.jpgSmedley Butler was absolutely the LAST man you would approach if you were serious. The most decorated Marine in history, Butler recently had been forced to resign by Herbert Hoover for calling Mussolini a "mad dog" and warning that his fascist cohorts "were about to break loose in Europe." Butler refused to retract his remarks and thus became a national hero overnight.

However, if you wanted someone to expose your coup as he did; (thought it "smacked of treason,") Butler was the go-to person.

Trump contradicts Bolton, Pompeo on military option against Venezuela

US President Donald Trump has contradicted his national security team on pushing for a military intervention against Venezuela, saying he and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin share the goal of a peaceful end to the crisis in the Central American nation.

"He is not looking at all to get involved in Venezuela, other than he'd like to see something positive happen for Venezuela, and I feel the same way. We want to get some humanitarian aid. Right now people are starving," Trump told reporters on Friday.

Trump's reference to Russia’s hands-off approach towards Venezuela stands in contrast to insistence by his Secretary of State Mike Pompeo that Russia is part of the problem in Caracas. Pompeo claimed earlier last week that President Nicolás Maduro was about to flee Venezuela until Russia persuaded him to stay.

Congress Proposes a Small Claims Copyright Court for Damages Under $30,000

Dubbed the ‘Copyright Enforcement in Small-Claims Enforcement,’ or the ‘Case Act,’ the proposed legislation aims to set up the Copyrights Enforcement Board.

If passed, the bipartisan bill would allow the new board to fast-track small claims for copyright owners seeking damages of up to $30,000. The Copyrights Enforcement Board would also lower the barrier for copyright holders, especially those with limited resources. Three judges would hear the cases from across the country.

Breaking: Syrian Army captures strategic hilltop to cutoff militant supply route along Idlib-Hama axis

BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:00 P.M.) – The jihadist and Turkish-backed rebels launched a counter-offensive along the Idlib-Hama axis, today, after the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) kicked off their operation along the demilitarized zone.

However, their counter-offensive would be short lived, thanks in large part to the Syrian Arab Army’s artillery units and air force.

Following the failed counter-offensive by the militants, the Syrian Arab Army retook the initiative to capture the key hilltop of Tal Uthman near the town of Kafr Naboudeh.

US warships sail through disputed South China Sea as Trump prompts trade war escalation with Beijing

Two US warships have sailed through the South China Sea, a move that has angered Beijing. The naval maneuver comes a day after Donald Trump threatened China with more tariffs as part of an ongoing trade war.

The US military has confirmed that two of its warships sailed near islands claimed by Beijing in the South China Sea on Monday. China says the waterway is part of its territorial waters, while Washington insists that the sea is open to international transit under the principle of “freedom of navigation.”

The US guided-missile destroyers ‘Preble’ and ‘Chung Hoon’ traveled within 12 nautical miles of Gaven and Johnson Reefs in the Spratly Islands, Reuters reported.

Blackwater Starts Training of ISIL Terrorists at US Base in Western Iraq

The notorious US mercenary firm Blackwater has returned to Iraq to train thousands of ISIL terrorists in the Washington-occupied Ein al-Assad base in al-Anbar province, a Lebanese newspaper reported.
The Arabic-language al-Akhbar newspaper reported on Saturday that Blackwater, along with other security firms, has returned to Iraq since the start of 2018 after Washington's heavy pressures on Baghdad to issue a relevant license.

According to the report, a source close to the US charge de affairs in Iraq Judy Hood said that Blackwater has transferred the US military equipment from Jordan to Western al-Anbar province in full coordination with Ein al-Assad base, adding that the company is now training the ISIL terrorists in the base.

Superjet-100 plane BOUNCED, hit ground, BURST its engines during landing – leaked CCTV footage

Leaked security camera footage shows the ill-fated landing attempt of Sukhoi Superjet-100 at Moscow’s Sheremetyevo Airport. The jet bounces and then smacks into the tarmac, rupturing its undercarriage and bursting into a fireball.

The footage of the crash-landing was captured by an airport security video camera and uploaded to Telegram channel Baza. It shows the aircraft attempting to land at speed, but then bouncing off the runway. Another touchdown attempt is made seconds later, but the plane’s undercarriage apparently collapses, smashing its engines and triggering a massive fireball.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The CDC has had a vaccine for this since 1982.

Plague Vaccine"

For anyone thinking about traveling to this part of the planet, please co-ordinate any vaccination with your health care professional before you go.

Here us what the CDC says about this vaccine:

"Plague vaccine is a vaccine used against Yersinia pestis. Killed bacteria have been used since 1890 but are less effective against pneumonic plague so that recently live vaccines of an attenuated type and recombination protein vaccines have been developed to prevent the disease."

After this outbreak, I sincerely hope that the Mongolians can purchase, and stockpile this, so that if it happens again, their people (and the tourists who come here) can be protected.

I'm not an anti-vaxxer; but with bubonic plague, I wouldn't want to mess around with this disease.

Israel kill Hamas commander in airstrike and 'prepares Gaza ground invasion' as it hits back after 600 militant rockets kill four and injure 66

An Israeli man, 58, became the first citizen to be killed in the Middle East hostilities since the 2014 war.

Seven Palestinians, including a pregnant mother and her baby daughter, were also reportedly killed.

Israeli PM Netanyahu said Hamas is paying a 'heavy price' and has ordered ground troops up to Gaza's border.

Three Israelis, including an 80-year-old woman, were also wounded by rocket fire in the weekend of combat.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

People who have been following the demonstrations at the border knew that this was coming; it was only a matter of time, until the israeli military felt that the "optics" of such an invasion would most probably be seen as a "Justified retaliation" by the rest of the world.

And this time, the IDF is going to kill as many innocent non-combatants as humanly possible; it will be a no holds barred situation, and the Israelis will not negotiate a cease fire this time.

Cowards and fiends push for the murder of children instead of trying to inspire them

In many of the greatest movies, there is an 'it's always darkest before the dawn' quality to the storytelling. For while our faith tells us what to believe, our hope is the thing that keeps us believing even when there seems little cause to. And it is in those moments, when silent hope is turned into resounding action, that there is the potential for a saving love beyond all comprehension.

How Russia Became Involved with Ukraine Part 3

Despite being vastly outgunned and out-manned by Ukrainian ultra-right militias and the Ukrainian military, Eastern Ukrainians were managing to not only defend themselves but also to drive Western Ukrainian forces back. This led many to speculate as to whether or not Russia had committed troops to support the Eastern Ukrainian rebels against Kiev. Western media and the governments it speaks for began crowing about Russian troops in Ukraine and “Russian aggression.” Russia, for its part, denied any involvement beyond humanitarian shipments to civilians.

The truth is somewhat murkier, however.

While Russian involvement at this point has been completely defensive, there is also undoubtedly Russian involvement.

MEDIA BIAS/FACT CHECK: PART OF A LARGER OPERATION TO DESTROY ALTERNATIVE MEDIA

SOURCE: KURT NIMMO
While doing research for a Newsbud video, I came across the Media Bias/Fact Check (MBFC) website. This is one of a growing number of “fact checking” websites designed to discredit news websites not following official narratives closely enough.

Here’s what the site has to say about Newsbud and my participation:

Newsbud (NB) is a right wing, conspiracy and anti-government site founded by, among others, Kurt Nimmo, the former lead editor and writer for Infowars. What sets NB apart from other sites of this type is that the stories are, for the most part, well written and contain numerous sources. The bias of the writing is also more subtle than sites such as Infowars, but just as prevalent. Both as an overtone to all the stories as well as the sometimes questionable sources and / or the conclusions drawn from the source material. Additionally, many of their sources are other NB stories, or work the author and editors have done elsewhere.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Kurt Nimmo is one blogger for whom Mike and I have a great deal of respect, and we link to his articles frequently.

JFK CONFRONTED ISRAEL OVER ITS SECRET NUCLEAR PROGRAM

Avner Cohen and Bill Burr are two of the best historians on the secret Israeli nuclear program of the 1960s, which made Israel the Middle East’s first nuclear power.

Seal of Mossad – Israeli Foreign Intelligence
It almost didn’t happen. In a brief for the non-profit National Security Archives and an article for Haaretz.com,Cohen and Burr explain that the program was almost shut down. President John F. Kennedy confronted Israeli leaders in the summer of 1963 demanding stringent inspections.

Throughout the spring and summer of 1963, the leaders of the United States and Israel – President John F. Kennedy and Prime Ministers David Ben-Gurion and Levi Eshkol – were engaged in a high-stakes battle of wills over Israel’s nuclear program.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder; was this one of the reasons for Kennedy's assassination?!?

ANALYSTS CONFIRM NORTH KOREA LAUNCHED FIRST BALLISTIC MISSILE SINCE 2017

SOURCE: ZERO HEDGE
Analysts have studied a report from North Korea's Korean Central News Agency, which was accompanied by a few images, and determined that the "projectile" fired by North Korea Saturday morning, was, in fact, a short-range ballistic missile.

In addition to images released by KCNA, independent analysts managed to capture images of the launch.
