U.S. arms sold to Saudis are killing civilians in Yemen

U.S. arms sold to Saudis are killing civilians in Yemen. Now the Trump administration is set to sell them more
***
The attack, one of the deadliest for civilians in the coalition’s relentless air war against Iranian-backed rebels in Yemen, helped persuade the Obama administration in December to block the sale of precision-guided munitions to the Saudi military until it addresses problems with its targeting.

But the hold was lifted last month, when President Trump announced a $110-billion package of proposed military sales to the kingdom, part of an effort to shore up a regional alliance against a resurgent Iran. The decision has left many among Yemen’s increasingly desperate population feeling abandoned and betrayed.

Federal agent alleges U.S. misconduct, cover-up in Bundy Ranch trial

A federal investigator is alleging prosecutors in the Bundy Ranch standoff trial covered up misconduct by law enforcement agents who engaged in "likely policy, ethical and legal violations."

In an 18-page memo to the Assistant U.S. Attorney General, Special Agent Larry Wooten said he "routinely observed ... a widespread pattern of bad judgment, lack of discipline, incredible bias, unprofessionalism and misconduct" among agents involved in the 2014 armed standoff.

He said his investigation indicated federal agents engaged in excessive force, civil rights and policy violations.

'Islamic State' is fighting with weapons made in the EU: study

A significant proportion of the guns and ammunition in "Islamic State's" (IS) cache were manufactured in the European Union, according to the study published Thursday by Conflict Armament Research (CAR).

In its 200-page investigation, the weapons tracking organization claimed that more than 30 percent of the arms used by IS extremists on battlefields in Syria and Iraq originally came from factories in Bulgaria, Romania, Hungary and Germany.

Russia and China produced more than half of the weapons held by the terror group, the report added.

Former US Attorney: 'James Comey Sold His Soul to the Devil'

Joe DiGenova, a former U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia, said he believes former FBI Director James Comey, along with senior Justice officials in the Obama administration, "threw the case" against Hillary Clinton over her private email server.

On "Tucker Carlson Tonight," DiGenova pointed out that not only was Comey’s draft statement on the Clinton email probe highly edited to play down the bureau's findings, but that statement was drafted two months before Clinton and some of her top aides were even interviewed.

"Comey sold his soul to the devil," DiGenova said, claiming that he has heard from current FBI agents who can't believe what's happened at the bureau in recent months.

Time for the GOP to rally to President Trump and the agenda that won 2016

As evidenced by the outcomes of both the Virginia gubernatorial race and the Alabama Senate special election, no matter what, Democrat voters are going to be extremely motivated in 2018 to take back Congress.

For, this is no time to panic.

Instead, it is time for Republicans to rally to President Trump and the agenda that won the election in 2016. That is, cut taxes, repeal Obamacare, appoint conservative judges, get better trade deals, slash regulations, curb illegal immigration and build the southern border wall. Also, no bad deals on DACA amnesty. The wall is not enough; chain migration has to be ended.

The Enemy Within – Justin Raimondo

It’s called the “intelligence community”

Of course it was the purest coincidence that no less than three major media outlets got the Trump email story wrong. Yes, those “multiple sources” sure were busy.

It’s absurd to think that this episode is a case of simply getting it wrong: this was undoubtedly a deliberate lie, planted in the media by the same rogue “intelligence community” that invented Russia-gate. It didn’t matter that the truth would eventually come out: look at how many times the original story was tweeted and retweeted over social media, and then consider how many people don’t know it’s been debunked.

President Trump Claims The FBI Is Tainted And Its Reputation In Tatters. This Graph Shows He’s Wrong.

“It’s a shame what’s happened with the FBI,” President Trump told reporters yesterday, calling the bureau’s conduct “really, really disgraceful.” He was building on criticisms he’d levied earlier this month, when he labeled the Federal Bureau of Investigation “tainted” and said its reputation was “in tatters.” The president claimed that ideological bias was behind the FBI’s decisions about criminal investigations involving Hillary Clinton and Robert S. Mueller III’s ongoing special counsel investigation.

Gowdy Eviscerates Andrew McCabe: "I'll Be Surprised If He's Still An Employee Of The FBI By This Time Next Week"

Once again echoing the dinner conversations of a growing number of American households around the country, Representative Trey Gowdy (R-SC) ripped into FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe on Fox News regarding text messages released earlier this week between Agent Peter Strzok and lawyer Lisa Page that revealed an FBI plot, allegedly hatched in McCabe's office, to prevent a Trump presidency at all costs. Among other things, Gowdy said he would be somewhat shocked if McCabe was still an employee of the FBI "by this time next week."

"I'm still trying to figure out why 3 FBI agents are discussing politics in the Deputy Director's office because you're not supposed to discuss politics on Federal ground. And FBI agents aren't supposed to engage in politics for Hatch Act reasons."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mc Cabe is about to get crucified publicly in these hearings next week; and were I Hillary Clinton, I would be ordering my minions to research the best place to live, and immediately, with which the US has no extradition treaty right now.

CONSPIRACY THEORISTS WERE RIGHT: CORPORATE MEDIA FINALLY FORCED TO ADMIT AMERICA ARMED ISIS

While the mainstream media opted to protect the United States government by treating anyone who dared to question the government’s role in the rise of ISIS as crazy conspiracy theorists, a new report is forcing the MSM to admit that those “conspiracies” were true all along.

Now, mainstream media outlets such as Reuters and USA Today are suddenly reporting that the United States and its close ally, Saudi Arabia, were instrumental in supplying weapons and ammunition to ISIS. Both reports cite an investigation conducted by Conflict Armament Research (CAR), which looked at 40,000 items recovered from Islamic State militants between July 2014 and November 2017.

A final report from CAR titled “Weapons of the Islamic State,” concluded that the vast majority of the weapons used by ISIS were supplied in the thousands, given their origin and the fact that they were found “in numbers far beyond those that would have been available to the group through battlefield capture alone.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There you have it; the US government resorted to any and all means, including hired mercs, to bring down Bashar al Assad...and failed miserably, as Putin's military out-thought, out-maneuvered, and outdid ISIS on the battlefield.

To Fix The Tax Plan’s $1.4 Trillion Hole, Republicans Will Target Medicare and Social Security

Congressional Republicans are on the cusp of achieving their biggest goal: Passing a tax reform bill. While the bill itself is, in no way, tax “reform”, it does offer tax cuts for certain individuals and businesses. This has been the dream of Republicans in both the House and Senate for years, and it’s an issue on which they’ve used to separate themselves from Democrats who they claim to want higher taxes and bigger government.
