10+ Before & After Pics Of Aleppo Reveal What War Did To Syria’s Largest City

The battle of Aleppo is slowly drawing to a close after almost four and a half years of brutal fighting. A ceasefire agreement was recently reached allowing people to leave besieged areas of the city and travel to rebel-held areas in Idlib province, and pro-government forces, who have taken nearly all rebel-held districts in the city, are in the process of evacuating civilians and rebel fighters.

WOW Former US Ambassador to Israel Rips Trump's Choice for the Position

Mr. Friedman is unqualified for the position, but more important, he holds extreme views on the very issues that he will need to manage as a diplomat. Mr. Friedman would be representing not the American people but a small, extreme minority of Americans who have in mind the interests of a small, extreme minority in Israel.

Soros Funding Facebook’s New “Fact Checking” Group Targeting “Fake News” (Video)

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, or if you haven’t had any access to television, radio, or the Internet, then by now you’ve certainly heard all the fuss liberals and the mainstream media are making about what they are calling “fake news.” All we’ve heard about since Hillary’s shocking loss, is how “fake news” cannot be allowed to spread.

Just so there's no confusion, reporting that “Michael Brown had his hands up in the international signal for surrender when he was shot” was NOT fake news. Also, just to be clear, it was NOT “fake news” to report that a YouTube video was the catalyst responsible for the deadly attacks on Benghazi.

Jewish Power is now British Law – It’s Official!

By Gilad Atzmon

For years I have argued that Jewish power is the power to silence criticism of Jewish Power. Now, UK Prime Minister Theresa May has confirmed that my observation is spot on.

PM May has decided to accept the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) definition of antisemitism and to integrate it into British law.

According to the IHRA, “antisemitism is a certain perception of Jews, which may be expressed as hatred toward Jews. Rhetorical and physical manifestations of antisemitism are directed toward Jewish or non-Jewish individuals and/or their property, toward Jewish community institutions and religious facilities.”

Police: NYC Muslim woman's bias report is false

The attack described by Yasmin Seweid sounded all too familiar.
The 18-year-old Muslim woman from Long Island told police and media outlets in early December that she was riding the subway home one night from Baruch College, where she is a student, when three drunk men cornered her and began screaming “Donald Trump!”

US cancels major aid package to the Philippines over human rights concerns

The US government has said a major aid package to the Philippines worth hundreds of millions of dollars may not be renewed, due to concerns over the leadership of President Rodrigo Duterte.
The US embassy to the Philippines said there were “significant concerns” about civil liberties infringements in the country and confirmed a board of experts had deferred its renewal of the Millennium Challenge Grant for a further five years.

30% Increase In US Prison Suicide Deaths: Justice Department

The US Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) says the number of suicide deaths in the country’s state prisons rose by some 30 percent just over a one-year period between 2013 and 2014.

“From 2013 to 2014, the number of suicides in state prisons increased by 30 percent, from 192 to 249 suicides,” the bureau said in a news release published on Thursday.

What Did The Russian People Know About The US Election Result?

The Russians knew!!...

In a wonderfully ironic and perfectly consipiratorial result, Statista's Dyfed Loesche notes that, it turns out that the Russian were best at predicting who would win the U.S. presidential elections. According to research by Ipsos, only two other countries, or rather a majority of respective citizens, were giving Trump the thumps-up before the race for the White House had started. The rest of the world was convinced that Hillary Clinton would win.
...
You will find more statistics at Statista

See - this proves Putin did it... and he told all the Russian people too!!!

US to ship 1,600 tanks to Dutch arms depot in ‘clear message’ to Russia

The US has started moving tanks to a storage facility in the Netherlands in a bid to “deter” Russia, amid the biggest NATO buildup in Europe since the Cold War.
A total of 1,600 vehicles are due to be stored at a six-warehouse complex in the southeastern village of Eygelshoven, near the Belgian and German borders. The Eygelshoven facility was originally opened in 1985 during the Cold War, when it was used by US troops to practice drills in case of a possible Soviet attack.

Abrams Tanks, Bradley Fighting Vehicles and Paladin artillery have already started arriving in what is part of a $3.4 billion Congress-approved scheme to increase NATO military capability in Europe. Storage sites are also planned to be reopened in Poland, Belgium and Germany.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would like to politely point out to General Middendorp, the Nato High Command, the US Pentagon, and State Department, that the "Ukrainian crisis" was generated by elements of the US government, Soros Organisations, and the IMF to throw the duly elected Ukrainian President Yanukovich under a bus, and "anoint" the more Western-centric Poroshenko as President in 2014..

And BTW, before this writer goes to the false, "Russia annexed Crimea" story, let us remember that when the Crimean people realised that there was no legitimate government in Kiev, they first did a referendum of their people, to ask if they wanted to remain with Ukraine, or petition the Russian Federation to accept Crimean membership in that organisation. The people voted yes; the petition was accepted by the Russian Federation, and the Crimeans decided upon peaceful self-determination, in their break with Ukraine.

Of course, because Crimea had been the industrial powerhouse of Ukraine, but now it was about to become the industrial powerhouse of Russia, Ukraine and the US got mad enough to lie that Russia had simply annexed Crimea, when nothing could possibly be further from the truth.

The aggression here has been coming from NATO and the US, in the pre-positioning of weapons and military assets in such a way as to be encircling Russia.

Economics, Immigration and Terrorism: Europeans “Could See Civil War, Unrest And Utter Chaos” - Mac Slavo

It comes after months of warnings from experts – including top military brasses – that massive economic issues, mass immigration, and terrorism will lead to a full-scale crisis.

They have predicted this will affect the entire continent, eventually leading to civil war on the streets.

It seems that Switzerland’s Lieutenant General and Chief of the Armed Forces, André Blattmann, has foreseen what is to come. He warned last year:

[T]he combination of hybrid wars, the economy, and the refugee crisis would have “unforeseen dimensions”.

He then claimed social unrest was something Europe’s leaders and armies had to be prepared for.

The Swiss might be historically neutral, but they aren’t blind to the upheaval that could threaten stability both at home in their independent nation, and surrounding them on the rest of the European continent.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That no one in the EU could see this negative response coming to the effects of massive immigration from countries which do not accept the European mindset on anything, boggles the mind.

They are truly dealing with a "clash of civilizations" in Europe which could well engender a real civil war in EU member countries.

NSA Whistleblower Destroys Obama's Russia Narrative - "Hard Evidence Points To An Inside Leak, Not Hacking"

A group of retired senior intelligence officials, including the NSA whistleblower William Binney (former Technical Director, World Geopolitical & Military Analysis, NSA), have posted an open letter on consortiumnews.com that destroys the Obama administration's "Russian hacking" narrative. Within the letter, Binney argues that, thanks to the NSA's "extensive domestic data-collection network," any data removed remotely from Hillary Clinton or DNC servers would have passed over fiber networks and therefore would have been captured by the NSA who could have then analyzed packet data to determine the origination point and destination address of those packets. As Binney further notes, the only way the leaks could have avoided NSA detection is if they were never passed over fiber networks but rather downloaded to a thumb drive by someone with internal access to servers.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"nuff said, Mr. President?!?!?

NDAA Would Allow US to Send Anti-Aircraft Weapons to Syrian Rebels

It wasn’t widely reported during the debate of the 2017 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), nor indeed was it mentioned in either the House or Senate versions of the bill, but the NDAA has a provision within it that would allow the US to send shoulder-fired anti-aircraft missiles to rebel factions in Syria.

The provision was slipped into the conference report by Rep. Ted Yoho (R – FL) during the conference to reconcile the House and Senate versions, and would allow such arms shipments so long as Congressional committees approve of the move.

Incredibly, Rep. Yoho had previously successfully put an amendment into the House version which forbade the US from sending any anti-aircraft missiles to the rebels at all. There was no amendment at all in the Senate bill, and Yoho presented the the new version as a “compromise” that would ensure Congress at least had some say on the secret weapons smuggling program.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am having an industrial strength, palm to forehead moment right now, at warp speed.

Apparently, Representative Yoho is unaware that the US government has been doing this for 4 years in Syria, in an effort to effect "regime change", and such efforts have gone spectacularly badly for the US.

He also appears to have forgotten that one of the classic definitions of insanity is doing the same thing, in precisely the same way, yet expecting a different outcome.

Starving Yemeni Children, Bloated US Weapons Makers

While the world is transfixed on the epic tragedy unfolding in Syria, another tragedy – a hidden one – has been consuming the children of Yemen. Battered by the twin evils of war and hunger, every ten minutes a child in Yemen is now dying from malnutrition, diarrhea and respiratory-tract infections. A new UNICEF report shows over 400,000 Yemeni children suffering from severe acute malnutrition. Without immediate medical attention, these children will die. The situation is so dire that over half of the entire nation’s 25 million people lack sufficient food.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US government, through its enabling of the Saudi government, has become complicit in its war crimes against the people of Yemen.

This is what life looks like through the eyes of a starving to death Yemeni child:

Images: wounded, starving, and dead children, courtesy of Saudi Bombing Raids

Still proud to be an American, understanding that your government is complicit in the genocide of Yemini kids, after seeing these images?!?

When I was a kid growing up, I would never have imagined that my country would wind up a proud partner in war crimes.

And yet, at this point in its history, sadly, it has become one, regarding the humanitarian catastrophe Yemen has become, courtesy of American governmental assistance.

China's Navy seizes American underwater drone in South China Sea

A Chinese Navy warship has seized an underwater drone deployed by an American oceanographic vessel in international waters in the South China Sea, triggering a formal diplomatic protest

from the United States and a demand for its return, a U.S. defense official told Reuters on Friday.

The incident, the first of its kind in recent memory, took place on Dec. 15 northwest of Subic Bay off the Philippines just as the USNS Bowditch, an oceanographic survey ship, was about to retrieve the unmanned, underwater vehicle (UUV), the official said, speaking on condition of anonymity.

"The UUV was lawfully conducting a military survey in the waters of the South China Sea," the official said.

"It's a sovereign immune vessel, clearly marked in English not to be removed from the water - that it was U.S. property."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The first, logical question which must be asked is, was the drone actually in international waters, or did it somehow stray into territory the Chinese claims as theirs?!?

Was this a deliberate attempt by the US military to spook China's military by the use of this ocean-going drone, and was it being deployed for other than pure oceanographic research?!?

We certainly have more questions than answers right now.

Deaths Along Arizona Border Uncounted By Border Patrol

Paul Craig Roberts - How Come No One Involved in the Russian Hacking Conspiracy Talked?

The claims that the Russian government hacked US voting machines are absurd. Voting machines are not connected to the Internet. To hack a voting machine you have to be physically in proximity to the machine and use a hand held device. The machines can be programmed to throw the vote count to one candidate or the other, and there are other ways to interfere with elections. Possibly if a foreign power had server presence in the US, some precinct reports of results could be intercepted and altered, although a voice check over the telephone is an easy way to verify the electronic transmission. What is clear is that Russia cannot hack the voting machines.

Flint 2.0? Texas City Warns Residents Not to Drink or Use Tap Water

A Texas city began warning residents on Thursday that their water supply is contaminated and that they should avoid using the tap water in any form, including boiling, until an investigation is completed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If you take a look at the Material Safety Data Sheet, supplied by the company which manufactures it, this stuff is nasty:

Material Safety Data Sheet
INDULIN® AA-86

But someone had to be "asleep at the switch" at Valero's asphalt plant, if this happened the way Valero's damage control group says it happened.

Again, when safety standards are abandoned, bad things happen; with this event having happened to the local Corpus Christi water supply, it looks like it might be a while before the situation is brought totally under control.

Obama Says U.S. Will Retaliate for Russia’s Election Meddling

President Obama said on Thursday that the United States would retaliate for Russia’s efforts to influence the presidential election, asserting that “we need to take action,” and “we will.”

The comments, in an interview with NPR, indicate that Mr. Obama, in his remaining weeks in office, will pursue either economic sanctions against Russia or perhaps some kind of response in cyberspace.

Mr. Obama spoke as President-elect Donald J. Trump on Thursday again refused to accept Moscow’s culpability, asking on Twitter why the administration had waited “so long to act” if Russia “or some other entity” had carried out cyberattacks.

The president discussed the potential for American retaliation with Steve Inskeep of NPR for an interview to air on Friday morning. “I think there is no doubt that when any foreign government tries to impact the integrity of our election,” Mr. Obama said, “we need to take action. And we will — at the time and place of our choosing.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A polite, but strong, word of caution to President Obama; to accuse any foreign government of hacking the American election process, without any incontrovertible proof that such a thing actually happened, puts you on extraordinarily thin geopolitical ice, Mr. President.

And to double down with this accusation, and threat of retaliation, when your own Attorney General, Attorney General Lynch stated publicly, yesterday, that there was no evidence of 'technical interference' from Russia in this last election cycle?

Attorney General Lynch: No ‘Technical Interference’ From Russia During The Election?

Why is she making this statement, in the wake of your accusation and threat against Russia, sir?!?

Because the reality is, you cannot both be right.

NSA, FBI, and ODNI also say the CIA claim lacks foundation.

Ever since Trump was elected in November, President Obama, the Democrats, and Clinton, bruised by their stinging defeat, have been trying, desperately, to find something or someone to blame; fake news; anti-Clinton propaganda; and now, Russian hacking.

Your party bears the responsibility for this failure, first, by not allowing the candidate who could have beaten Trump, Bernie Sanders, to receive the the nomination.

The DNC party machinery used every possible trick in the book to keep this from happening, as the many lawsuits addressing this issue, will most probably prove.

And secondly, at the end of the day, Mr. President, you and your party must, inevitably, take responsibility for running such a deeply flawed candidate, whose history, health situation, and temperament, made her totally unfit for the White House.

So what do you, and the DNC, do now, and who do you groom for 2020?!?

If you and the DNC were smart, you would be looking for a candidate among your ranks who is bright, and relatively young, untainted by the kind of baggage and corruption which swirled at Clinton's feet like a cesspool when she was Secretary of State.

Her name...is House Representative Tulsi Gabbard, from Hawaii; she is a lady for whom I have a great deal of respect, although I am not, myself, a Democrat.

If the Democratic party wants to be perceived as having any shred of credibility whatsoever in the next election cycles, it must re-invent itself by returning to its roots as a fighter for justice for the underdogs in this country.

Because right now, the Democratic Party is perceived as an arrogant tool of the monied and entitled classes which has thoroughly abandoned those it allegedly represents, and has completely forgotten its history.

We Wanted To Find Troubled Jails, So We Counted The Bodies

In any given year, the vast majority of the thousands of jails in the United States do not report a single death. That makes sense. Jails are supposed to be controlled environments. You can’t get in a car accident behind bars. You shouldn’t be able to overdose on drugs or attempt suicide without a staff member noticing. If you have a health problem, jails should provide medical care.

But each year, about 1,000 Americans die in jail anyway. Many die without the public knowing why, or whether their deaths could have been prevented. Although the federal government collects data on jail deaths, it only publishes that data years later, and in aggregate, making it impossible to identify facilities that have particularly high death rates.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Simply put, the American penal system is engineered to fail; and part of that failure is the allowing these deaths to be simply put down to "prison collateral damage".

This many times happens to the poorest of the poor, who have absolutely no one to from the outside to advocate for them; so they get beaten; they overdose; and they don't get the medical care and the psychiatric screening they so desperately need.

Too many people, crowded into too few cages meant to hold perhaps one third to one half of its prison current population, is an absolute recipe for disaster.

And in order to maintain fat budgets, prison systems rely on the fact that the US penal system creates massive rates of recidivism, where the ex-con, upon release, offends again, gets convicted, and is sent right back to the slammer.

Other countries, like Sweden, are doing a far better job preparing their inmates for life outside prison walls, because the sole focus of incarceration is rehabilitation.

This makes sense to me, and their recidivism rate is far lower than that of the US because of it.

And I encourage you, if you haven't seen it, or are not a Michael Moore fan, please watch "Where to Invade Next", where, during one segment, he does a tour of a Swedish mens' prison. The appearance of the campus, coupled with the humanity with which these people are treated by their guards, is something we rarely see in American prisons.

Dear Mr. Trump

It was mighty gracious of the CIA to jump the shark before you even took office. That thug Brennan doesn’t look anything like a DCI to me. The great and noteworthy DCIs of yesteryear tended to resemble Fred Rogers or those elderly WASPs from the Consortium in The X-Files. Brennan looks like a minor character from The Sopranos, a leg-breaker for a loan shark in Jersey City or Paramus, or maybe a Teamster goon from Elizabeth. It’ll be great to see him go. The CIA needs a lot of work. Harry Truman recognized that, just a few years after he created it. Mission creep is the classic inherent flaw in any bureaucracy, and the CIA clearly overstepped its boundaries in 1953 when it overthrew the democratically elected Prime Minister of Iran, Mohammed Mossadegh, on behalf of the British Petroleum company. The moral trajectory and long-term effectiveness has been downhill from there.

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange to media: You are 'increasingly not very important'

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange on Thursday blasted US media outlets, contending in an interview that the power possessed by journalists had greatly diminished in recent years.

"They’re increasingly not very important," Assange said in a radio interview with Sean Hannity.

The Fox News host agreed: "So true."

Assange characterized the press as a "paper tiger" in the 2016 election and said the rise of new media had eroded the influence of traditional outlets.

"The old press is less important," he said.

Assange took particular issue with the "liberal press," blaming such journalists for a "degree of bias" that chased away readers.

"Readers see that. They feel it," he said. "They don’t like being lectured or told what to do. And they rebel against it."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It's been the coverage of this last election cycle by the Independent Media which gave Trump his opportunity to become the 45th President of the United States next January; I kind of feel warm and fuzzy about that!! :-)

PUTIN LASHES OUT AT OBAMA: "SHOW SOME PROOF OR SHUT UP"

Putin has had enough of the relentless barrage of US accusations that he, personally, "hacked the US presidential election."

The Russian president's spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, said on Friday that the US must either stop accusing Russia of meddling in its elections or prove it. Peskov said it was "indecent" of the United States to "groundlessly" accuse Russia of intervention in its elections.

“You need to either stop talking about it, or finally show some kind of proof. Otherwise it just looks very indecent”, Peskov told Reporters in Tokyo where Putin is meeting with Japan PM Abe, responding to the latest accusations that Russia was responsible for hacker attacks.

Peskov also warned that Obama's threat to "retaliate" to the alleged Russian hack is "against both American and international law", hinting at open-ended escalation should Obama take the podium today at 2:15pm to officially launch cyberwar against Russia.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Putin is asking the right question here; if there is incontrovertible proof by the US government that Russia hacked the election, why are they not presenting it?!?

And I would like to politely point out to the US government, that because of all the lies they have been telling the American public - and the world - Americans have become very skeptical of any accusations coming out of the mouths of any government official.

So, to the Obama Administration, I say; either prove this allegation, or please just go away quietly!!

US GOV’T, OLIGARCHS BEHIND PLANNED FAKE NEWS FLAGGING ON FACEBOOK

Facebook is adding a new feature wherein a group that the Washington Post calls an ‘independent third party fact checker’ will decide whether stories are real or fake, and flag ones the group decides are fake.

WaPo leaves out of its report that the ‘independent fact checker’, the Poynter International Fact-Checking Network, receives funding from a US government-funded group, the National Endowment for Democracy (NED), which award-winning, independent journalist Robert Parry and author William Blum document was created to perform tasks previously performed by the CIA.

NED was created when “[t]he Agency was getting an exceedingly bad name, and it was causing the powers-that-be much embarrassment”, notes Blum.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, this entity chosen by Facebook for its alleged "fact checking", is Poynter International Fact-Checking Network, which receives its money from a US government-funded group, the National Endowment for Democracy (NED)?

And NED was originally created to do things the CIA used to do, but, in essence, created "plausible deniability" for some of the CIA's more horrific actions, by being, technically, "one step away", so the CIA could not be blamed?!?

So folks, it's on: we are going to start to see massive censorship at Facebook, because it is a US government-funded which is doing its "fact checking."

It is very interesting to me that NED has historically been complicit in creating its own fake news, to further various government-desired agendas and outcome, including regime change in foreign countries, and the consolidation of power by US-centric regimes in those countries through practices like the use of death squads.

And Mark Zuckerberg‎, to think, for one millisecond, that you could pull a fast one on the American people, by using Poynter International Fact-Checking Network, funded by US-government sponsored NED, as your "filter" at Facebook, you have another thing coming.

So congratulations; you have now been exposed for being a superlative tool for the Deep State, by doing this.

So I will now move off your platform entirely, moving to alternatives which will not censor, and I encourage others to do so as well.

I think the best public response to this choice is a massive downturn n your company's profitability; and when people become aware of what you have done here, and they start to get angry, this may well be the outcome you see.

Congress Passes Bill to Start Putting RFID Chips in Disabled People (Video)

It was just last week, in a post titled, Start “Doubling Up On Your Prepping;” Countdown to Economic Collapse, when I quoted Mac Slavo who said:

-- “Now that the Western world has turned in the direction of Trump and Brexit, it may be that the bankster class is prepared to start the next phase.”

Several days after that post, came the news that the global elites were proceeding forward with their plain for a cashless society, and and why not test out a brand new program like that in a small country like India. As it turns out, over the last several years India (with a population of slightly over 1.2 BILLION people), the government has been installing biometric databases to read various body parts in even the most remote corners of the smallest towns and villages across all of India.

Wikileaks' founder Julian Assange goes on the offensive over claims Russia was behind Clinton email hack, saying Kremlin is NOT its source

Wikileaks founder Julian Assange flatly rejected U.S. intelligence claims that his organization received leaked Clinton emails from the Russian government, saying the allegations are part of a 'foolish' and 'dangerous' effort by Democrats to overturn Donald Trump’s election victory.

'Our source is not the Russian government,' Assange told Sean Hannity on his radio show on Thursday, in his first U.S. interview since the election. 'We have U.S. intelligence saying that say they know how we got our stuff and when we got it, and us saying we didn’t get it from a state.'

'Our source is not the Russian government,' Assange told Sean Hannity on his radio show on Thursday, in his first U.S. interview since the election. 'We have U.S. intelligence saying that say they know how we got our stuff and when we got it, and us saying we didn’t get it from a state.'

IF AMERICANS STOP CRITICIZING OUR GOVERNMENT, WE’LL STOP BEING AMERICAN

There is a giant push by governments and mainstream corporate media to censor criticism of the American government as somehow helping Russia.

That’s honestly one of the most anti-American, pro-Communist kinds of bullshit I’ve ever heard.

In reality, dissent is one of the most uniquely American values. As someone born and raised in the U.S., who has lived here my whole life, and who values the Constitution and the rule of law, I’m furious that idiots are pushing a Soviet version of censorship which would destroy what our forefathers fought and died for: freedom. I’m pissed off that they’re trying to destroy what makes us Americans.

As Georgetown history professor Michael Kazin wrote in the Washington Post:

Now, as throughout its history, the most effective way to love our country is to fight like hell to change it.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As a Christian Pacifist activist, I logically, peacefully, call my government out when its actions do not appear to be supporting We the People, but almost exclusively the mega-corporations, which fund politicians' campaigns, and those incidents seem to be rising exponentially these days.

I never advocate violence, because I understand that violence is something the Federal Government understands how to put down with extreme prejudice.

But I will continue to shine the light of witness on the lies the Federal Government consistently tells its citizens with impunity; and if, because those lies get exposed for what they are, and people have almost zero faith in the US Federal Government, it is that government's own fault, and not that of people out there attempting to analyze what the government is saying, and which of its agendas those lies support.

I will continue to advocate against these horrific, pre-emptive wars, which have broken this country, both fiscally and morally, and constantly urge the US government to resolve its geopolitical differences with other countries through hard-won good faith negotiations.

So, I really want to know; how in the name of heaven, is requesting logical, rational, citizen-centric behaviour from my government "somehow helping Russia"?!?

IT’S NOT OVER: FIGHT AGAINST DAKOTA ACCESS PIPELINE ENTERS NEW PHASE

In early December, a blizzard struck North Dakota, blanketing the Oceti Sakowin, Rosebud, and Sacred Stone water protector camps with heavy snow in below freezing temperatures. As the Standing Rock Sioux and allies battled the crippling cold, the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers (USACE) handed the native community a victory by denying the permit for the final construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline. The USACE said they will conduct an environmental impact assessment and consider possible alternative routes.

Although fireworks rang out above the camps following the Army Corps decision, there was also a sense of hesitation. Water protectors remained uncertain over whether the fight had really been won or if the decision was simply a ploy to delay an inevitable conclusion. It quickly became apparent that the fight was not over as word spread that the company behind the pipeline, Energy Transfer Partners, would continue with their plans to complete the project.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

With $20 million a day at stake in revenues, my guess is, that what we are seeing now, is simply a series of delaying tactics, and a hope, on the part of Energy Transfer Partners, that the issue will go away.

Although many of the Standing Rock Souix have returned home, due to extreme winter weather conditions, this issue, of the protection of both their water, land environment, and sacred burial grounds, will not go away.

The boycotting of those financial institutions supporting DAPL, coupled with legal challenges against the project, are good moves, but may not be strong enough to stop the project in the long run.

WHY didn't White House act? Donald Trump hits out at 'ridiculous' Russia CIA hacking claim

The President-elect branded the CIA’s claims as “ridiculous” after they said they had compelling evidence Moscow-backed hackers were interfering in the election.

Mr Trump questioned why the White House would have waited “so long to act” if hackers swayed his victory on November 8.

He tweeted: “If Russia, or some other entity, was hacking, why did the White House wait so long to act?”

Taking one final swipe at defeated Hillary Clinton, the billionaire politician asked his 17.3million followers: “Why did they only complain after Hillary lost?”

It is a system which has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly knit, highly efficient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific and political operations.

Syrian Catholic Patriarch: West turns blind eye toward Islam's attack on Middle East Christians

In a straight-from-the-heart cry for help for the rapidly vanishing but 2,000-year-old Christian presence in Middle East, Patriarch Ignatius Joseph told the Knights of Columbus that Saudi Arabia was funding Muslim jihadists to act out a new kind of murderous intolerance, and the Western democracies were letting them do it... “We, the Church pastors, kept warning Westerners who pretended to have the right to interfere in Syria in the name of democracy, that fomenting violence would surely lead to terrible sectarian war because of the complex religious and ethnic diversity in Syria. We knew innocent people, primarily Christians and minorities, would suffer most.”

Obama Vows Retaliation Against "Russia Hacking", To Hold Press Conference On Friday

And sure enough, on Thursday evening CNN reported that President Barack Obama vowed retaliatory action against Russia for its meddling in the US presidential election, in effect telling Russia he is about to declare cyberwar on it.

"I think there is no doubt that when any foreign government tries to impact the integrity of our elections that we need to take action and we will at a time and place of our own choosing," Obama told National Public Radio. He is certainly right: the only doubt is that a foreign government did in fact try to "impact the integrity of our elections."

Jurors Convict Dylann Roof on All Counts in Church Slayings

Dylann Roof was convicted Thursday in the chilling attack on nine black church members who were shot to death last year during a Bible study, affirming the prosecution's portrayal of a young white man who hoped the slayings would start a race war or bring back segregation.

Instead, the single biggest change to emerge from the June 17, 2015, slayings that shocked the nation was the removal of the Confederate flag from the South Carolina Statehouse, where it had flown for 50 years over the Capitol or on the grounds. Roof appeared with the flag in several photos in a racist manifesto.

In his confession to the FBI, the gunman said he carried out the killings after researching "black on white crime" on the internet. He said he chose a church because that setting posed little danger to him.

Elite vs. Trump

snip: If the FBI and CIA don’t hunt down the person who divulged this “secret report,” it was an authorized release. You’re being misled on purpose.

Now, getting back to the story, let’s note that there is zero evidence given. Just “it was a secret report, trust us.” Not one of the “officials” is named.

It should also be noted that Julian Assange has flatly denied that Russia was the source of the leaks. And Assange, unlike 99% of all Washington, has a reputation for truth-telling.

There were earlier reports blaming Russia for the Wikileaks hacks, and they, likewise, provided zero evidence. They say things like “consistent with Russian methods,” implying, it would seem, that Russia has some kind of patent on hacking techniques. They expect us to believe that Putin’s crews run their hacks from Russian companies and Russian IP addresses.

US troops to arrive in Europe in January to reassure allies

The United States is deploying troops to Poland, the Baltic states and Romania next month as part of raising the security of the region, Polish and U.S. defense officials said Wednesday.

Polish Defense Minister Antoni Macierewicz made the announcement following talks with the commander of U.S. land troops in Europe, Lt. Gen. Ben Hodges, in Zagan, western Poland. An Armored Brigade Combat Team from Fort Carson, Colorado will be deployed there early next month, while another U.S. force, a battalion, will be deployed April 1 to Orzysz, in the northeast.

Macierewicz said he was "very happy that a decision has been taken by the U.S. side for an earlier deployment."

But the U.S. Army told The Associated Press that the deployment was not accelerated and is taking place as had always been scheduled.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If, in fact, this deployment has been accelerated, it is reason to worry; the 1st of January will be upon us in 17 days.

And apparently, it appears that fact-checking is something AP doesn't do anymore, when the facts do not support the US government's narrative, which is clearly the case here.

The US and NATO understand that Russia did NOT annex Crimea in 2014, so they are using this lie as their justification to provoke some kind of war against Russia even before Trump has the opportunity to take the Oath of Office.

This is the American "deep state" at its worst.

Something wicked this way comes, folks.

Revealed: Who Gave Democratic Emails to Wikileaks

Specifically, in an interview with Scott Horton on Tuesday, Murray said that – because John Podesta’s company is a registered lobbyist for the Saudi Arabian government – the NSA and other intelligence agencies were monitoring their emails as a matter of course.

Murray said that an insider from an American intelligence service (read: NSA) leaked the Podesta emails to Wikileaks. Indeed, the NSA whistleblower handed the emails to Murray in a park in Washington, D.C.

Murray said that Wikileaks head Julian Assange tells him that the leaker of the DNC emails was a DNC insider.

Ex-British ambassador who is now a WikiLeaks operative claims Russia did NOT provide Clinton emails - they were handed over to him at a D.C. park by an intermediary for 'disgusted' Democratic whistleblowers

Craig Murray, former British ambassador to Uzbekistan and associate of Julian Assange, told the Dailymail.com he flew to Washington, D.C. for emails
He claims he had a clandestine hand-off in a wooded area near American University with one of the email sources.

The leakers' motivation was 'disgust at the corruption of the Clinton Foundation and the 'tilting of the primary election playing field against Bernie Sanders'
Murray says: 'The source had legal access to the information. The documents came from inside leaks, not hacks'.

'Regardless of whether the Russians hacked into the DNC, the documents Wikileaks published did not come from that,' Murray insists.

Murray is a controversial figure who was relieved of his post as British ambassador amid allegations of misconduct but is close to Wikileaks.

His account contradicts directly the version of how thousands of Democratic emails were published before the election being advanced by U.S. intelligence.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

At this point, I would tend to believe Murray's account over ANYTHING the CIA had to say.

A PATH OUT OF TROUBLE

Latune and Kiara are bright and passionate teenagers. Latune is the more artistic of the two — she plans to become a professional fashion designer. Kiara is the more pragmatic one — she’s set on becoming an anesthesiologist. They both have career plans carefully laid out, and are determined to get out of their neighborhoods and go to college.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Counseling, love, and structure are desperately needed by kids like these, if they are ever going to reach their full potential.

Putting kids like this in prison is the polar opposite of what society should be doing here.

Unfortunately, we have a lot of very broken (and many times, single-parent) families which need healing.

Sometimes, being part of a faith community can be helpful.

What I have seen, in looking at my own family, and other successful families, is that the more intergenerational, positive support and contact a child has, all the way through their lives, the more likely they are to succeed in their lives.

When kids don't get this, the more likely it is that, one way or another, they will wind up in trouble, with a rap sheet, and unable to function.

China Defends Its Right To ‘Ready Slingshot’ In South China Sea

China defended its right on Thursday to put “necessary military installations” on artificial islands in the South China Sea, after a U.S. think-tank said Beijing appeared to have deployed weapons such as anti-aircraft and anti-missile systems.

The Asia Maritime Transparency Initiative (AMTI) at the Center for Strategic and International Studies said its findings, made available first to Reuters on Wednesday, were based on analysis of satellite images of islands in the strategic trade route, where territory is claimed by several countries.

The United States has previously criticized what it called China’s militarization of its maritime outposts, and stressed the need for freedom of navigation by conducting periodic air and naval patrols near them that have angered Beijing.

China’s Defense Ministry said in a statement on its website on Thursday that the construction it had carried out on islands and reefs in the disputed Spratlys chain was “mainly for civilian use.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Annoying China with accusations right now is not going to garner any favors for the US.

Chinese history absolutely legitimizes its claim to this territory.

Hopefully, after Trump is inaugurated, there can be some quiet diplomacy so that tensions will be ratcheted down here.

SO MUCH FOR UNITY! EU IN DISARRAY AS MEPS THREATEN TO START THEIR OWN BREXIT TALKS WITH UK

Guy Verhofstadt, the EU Parliament’s chief negotiator, savaged representatives from the European Council and threatened to start up his own talks with the UK if MEPs are not given a leading role in the Brexit process.

His astonishingly blunt ultimatum will alarm European leaders and signals the start of a long and acrimonious war between the Council, which represents the interests of the individual member states, and the Parliament which speaks for the euro elite in Brussels.

Former Ukip leader Nigel Farage said the proposal showed that the EU had become “so unworkable” that Britain should ditch triggering Article 50 and instead just walk away from the troubled bloc.

The row erupted after Mr Verhofstadt accused EU Council chiefs of trying to sideline the EU parliament and hand MEPs only the most minimal role in the Brexit negotiations.

Martin Schulz said MEPs and member states are heading for a period of conflict over Brexit.

Looks like the EU is starting to implode.

MEDIA IGNORES US RIGGING OF RUSSIA’S ELECTIONS AS CIA STRUGGLES TO PROVE RUSSIAN HACKING

Mainstream, corporate media and the U.S. political establishment has once again proved the depth of their hypocrisy in thus far unsubstantiated claims Russia directly interfered with the presidential election — because the United States has done so, itself, with multiple countries.

Including Russia.

Twenty years ago, TIME Magazine exclusively reported on the feats of American political consultants who’d managed — much to the joy of the United States government — to ensure Boris Yeltsin won re-election to the Russian presidency.

20 years ago, TIME praised America’s propaganda campaign to elect Yeltsin. Today, they have appeared to change their tone.

“TRANSPARENT” OBAMA ADMIN JUST ORDERED BUSH’S WAR CRIMES TO REMAIN SECRET FOR 12 MORE YEARS

Those who wished to read the full text of the notorious Senate report on documenting the CIA torture of detainees after 9/11 will have to wait for 12 years. The White House ordered it kept under seal after Barack Obama leaves office.
Seven US senators urged the Obama administration to declassify the 6,770-page Senate Select Committee on Intelligence report on the CIA’s detention and interrogation program so the public could have a full account of past torture practices.

White House counsel Neil Eggleston, in responding to the request, said the president had told the National Archives and Records Administration that access to the classified material should be shielded from public access requests for 12 years.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

No, Mr. President: this report on CIA torture should be released immediately.

The American people deserve to know what was done, in their names, and with their tax dollars, to torture prisoners of war into confessions. Consider the case of one Benyam Mohammed, as reported in the working papers, 2006, of the Council of Europe Parliamentary Council, and I warn you: the language is very graphic, but I think Americans should definitively know what went on in the torture sessions the US military did directly, or outsourced, as was the case here.

206. At its worst, the torture involved stripping Binyam naked and using a doctor's scalpel to make incisions all over his chest and other parts of his body: "One of them took my penis in his hand and began to make cuts. He did it once and they stood for a minute, watching my reaction. I was in agony, crying, trying desperately to suppress myself, but I was screaming. They must have done this 20 to 30 times, in maybe two hours. There was blood all over. They cut all over my private parts. One of them said it would be better just to cut it off, as I would only breed terrorists."

207. Eventually Binyam began to co-operate in his interrogation sessions in an effort to prevent being tortured: "They said if you say this story as we read it, you will just go to court as a witness and all this torture will stop. I could not take any more... and I eventually repeated what they read out to me. They told me to say I was with bin Laden five or six times. Of course that was false. They continued with two or three interrogations a month. They weren't really interrogations —more like trainings, training me what to say."

The bottom line here is, torture will get the tortured person to say anything their torturers want them to say in order to get the torture to stop; they were getting precisely the false confessions his torturers wanted from this guy, which he gave in order to get the torture to stop.

It does not produce actionable intelligence.

One of the finest interrogators of all times, Germany's Hanns-Joachim Scharff, during World War 11, never used any torture; only kindness, but wound up with great intel from the process. In fact, after the war, because he was so respected by the American military, he was invited to give courses in his methods of interrogation here in the states.

And I will tell you what else happens, when the US government either tortures, or outsources torture.

1. It demonstrates to the world that the United States does not believe in the
rule of law at all, so its treatment of prisoners of war absolutely does not
follow the Geneva Conventions, which provide for the humane treatment of
these prisoners.

2. It gives carte blanche to leadership of other countries to torture American
civilians and military personnel.

3. It demonstrates, both at home and abroad, that US leadership has utterly
no moral compass whatsoever.

KEITH OLBERMANN LOSES IT: US MILITARY WILL SOON BE CONTROLLED BY 'SCUM' BEHOLDEN TO 'RUSSIAN SCUM'

Presented below with little comment is an epic rant, culminating in what might have been an actual on-air nervous breakdown, by Keith Olbermann about the "Russian coup" that is currently in process and threatens "the end of the United States as an independent country."

"The nation and all of our freedoms hang by a thread. And the military apparatus of this country is about to be handed over to scum who are beholden to scum, Russian scum. As things are today, January 20th will not be an inauguration but rather the end of the United States as an independent country. It will not be a peaceful change of power. It will be a usurpation. And the usurper has no validity, no credibility and no authority under the constitution. This is a reality that will become the only reality until this country rids itself of Donald John Trump. He is not a President."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have listened to this from beginning to end.

Olbermann is either in severe need of a psychological intervention, or whatever the Democratic Party is paying him, it cannot possibly be enough.

Apparently, for this gentleman, fact checking has gone the way of the whoopie cushion and the dribble glass. As reported at zerohedge.com 5 days ago:

CIA agents told the lawmakers it was “quite clear” - although it was not reported exactly what made it "clear" - that electing Trump was Russia’s goal, according to officials who spoke to the Post, citing growing evidence from multiple sources. And yet, key questions remain unanswered, and the CIA’s report fell short of being a formal U.S. assessment produced by all 17 intelligence agencies the newspaper said, for two reasons. As we reported in November "The "Fact" That 17 Intelligence Agencies Confirmed Russia is Behind the Email Hacks Isn’t Actually…A "Fact", and then also because aside from so-called "consensus", there is - once again - no evidence, otherwise the appropriate agencies would have long since released it, and this is nothing more than another propaganda attempt to build tension with Russia. In fact, the WaPo admits as much in the following text, which effectively destroys the article's entire argument : The CIA presentation to senators about Russia’s intentions fell short of a formal U.S. assessment produced by all 17 intelligence agencies. A senior U.S. official said there were minor disagreements among intelligence officials about the agency’s assessment, in part because some questions remain unanswered. For example, intelligence agencies do not have specific intelligence showing officials in the Kremlin “directing” the identified individuals to pass the Democratic emails to WikiLeaks, a second senior U.S. official said. Those actors, according to the official, were “one step” removed from the Russian government, rather than government employees. Moscow has in the past used middlemen to participate in sensitive intelligence operations so it has plausible deniability. * * * “I’ll be the first one to come out and point at Russia if there’s clear evidence, but there is no clear evidence — even now,” said Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee and a member of the Trump transition team. “There’s a lot of innuendo, lots of circumstantial evidence, that’s it.”

If the Chair of the House Intelligence Committee states that there is zero evidence of Russian complicity in this election, I think one can understand that there is no evidence, period, end of discussion.

To put it bluntly, Mr. Olbermann has lost his reality license, as evidenced by this statement, and has simply become a total apparatchik of the Democratic party; he needs to be stripped of his TV "bully pulpit", and immediately, for a complete lack of credibility.

Lets Give FBI Director Comey A Little Credit - He Refused To Co-Author CIA Speculative Report On Russian Interference Into 2016 Election - Why Not?

I want to first say I think FBI Director Comey deserves some credit for refusing to put the name of the FBI on a CIA speculative report which had no “evidence” to back it up.

EXCLUSIVE: Ex-British ambassador who is now a WikiLeaks operative claims Russia did NOT provide Clinton emails - they were handed over to him at a D.C. park by an intermediary for 'disgusted' Democratic whistleblowers

A Wikileaks envoy today claims he personally received Clinton campaign emails in Washington D.C. after they were leaked by 'disgusted' whisteblowers - and not hacked by Russia.

Craig Murray, former British ambassador to Uzbekistan and a close associate of Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, told Dailymail.com that he flew to Washington, D.C. for a clandestine hand-off with one of the email sources in September.

'Neither of [the leaks] came from the Russians,' said Murray in an interview with Dailymail.com on Tuesday. 'The source had legal access to the information. The documents came from inside leaks, not hacks.'

U.S. KIDS KEEP GETTING DUMBER; RANKED 31ST OF 35 DEVELOPED NATIONS IN MATH, NEW STUDY REVEALS

The U.S. Department of Education has just released it's latest ranking of international education systems (Program for International Student Assessment - "PISA") and performance of U.S. students just continues to deteriorate on both absolute and relative terms.

Perhaps it's time to have a real conversation about the complete failure of "Common Core" and the idiocy of allowing teachers' unions to hold our children hostage while hiding behind ridiculous contracts that grant tenure after 6 months and make it impossible to fire underperformers. Just a thought for the incoming Trump administration.

The Washington Post’s Valerie Strauss summed up the problems nicely:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The dumbing down of America's kids has been deliberate, courtesy of the Federal Government, and a system of alleged standards, under the heading of Common Core, which have failed, utterly.

When kids are not taught to be literate, both numerically and linguistically, they become incapable of critical thinking, which makes all the difference in determining what the quality of their lives will be

Critical thinking will also give them the capability to determine if what the US government is telling them is true or false.

That is not something the US government wants our kids, let alone our adults, to be able to do, because it lies to its people consistently, and it is best that kids understand this when they are very young, so as not to swallow its propaganda, but understand the narrative the government is supporting, and why.

Public schools have become a danger to the intellectual and emotional health of our kids; if you have any way of pulling your child out of public school, and either home school that child, or find a magnet school with a proven track record, please do it now now.

Your child will thank you for it later.

Shocking News: Obama’s DHS Guilty Of Faking Russian Hacks (Video)

For all the talk and all the uproar coming from the Democrats and the mainstream media about “fake news,” people need to know what the mainstream media is refusing to tell them. As one of the articles below details, and as I’ll explain in the video, multiple sources have already come forward and confirmed that it was NOT the Russians who hacked the DNC’s emails this past summer, but rather it was a source inside the DNC who leaked the information. 

The inside source who leaked the information to Wikileaks is believed to have been Seth Rich, a self-described data analyst for the Democratic National Committee, and someone who would have had access to all the fraud going on inside the DNC at the time, thereby making him a liability. As it turns out, he was just one of SIX former Clinton associates turned adversaries who wound up dead under mysterious circumstances in only a FIVE week span this summer.

THE ULTIMATE “FAKE NEWS” LIST

Isn’t it ironic how the mainstream media has the nerve to lecture everyone else about “fake news” when they are the primary source of fake news on a consistent basis stretching back years?

Fake news stories and fake narratives put out by the mainstream media have resulted in deaths, destruction and people’s lives being ruined.

The most harmful fake news is routinely published by the mainstream media.

They are the main progenitors of fake news.

Huge Voter Fraud Found That Benefited Hillary Clinton

Michigan recount finds voting WAS flawed – but mainly in Clinton-friendly Detroit where one-third of voting machines recorded too many ballots

In Detroit, a Democratic stronghold where Hillary Clinton won 95 per cent of the vote, voting machines in one-third of the election precincts counted more ballots than the number of people recorded as walking in line to cast them.

The Wayne County clerk’s office reported that only 236 of Detroit’s 662 voting precincts had ballot totals and registration records that matched.

Bakersfield, Calif. Police Who Shot Senile 73-Year-Old Crucifix-Wielding Grandpa 9 Times Trained By DHS, ADL

26-year-old rookie cop Reagan Sellman, a former Marine, shot and killed a 73-year-old grandpa suffering from dementia Monday morning at 12:30AM. The rookie cop unloaded his gun on Francisco Serna claiming he had a gun, when in reality it was a Catholic crucifix. The police had even been to the house several times before and were familiar with the man. A paranoid neighbor woman, who didn't even know her own neighbor who lived across the street from her, initiated the whole thing when she freaked out and called the cops on Serna, claiming the confused elderly man had a gun and was posing a threat to her. When Francisco came across the street to talk to them, the paranoid woman and her husband ran into their house and police open-fired, murdering him.

NDAA 2016: “Fake News” Sites Are Subject to Treason Investigations (Video)

Earlier this week, with a lot of pressure from our woefully dishonest and corrupt mainstream media, some terrifying new legislation was passed that should frighten anyone who values free speech. The legislation I am referring to was quietly passed under the 2016 NDAA (National Defense Authorization Act), and it authorizes the government to investigate and crackdown on websites named in “Fake News” blacklists for treason, and as you might expect there was no coverage on the passage of the legislation by the mainstream corporate media.

In the video below, I explain how legislation like that passed both Houses of Congress when they are both Houses are controlled by the GOP, and what the newly passed legislation means for the future of free speech. In addition to providing a link to the original announcement for those who never read it, I also explain what Google and Facebook “actually” said when they announced they were cracking down on “Fake News.”

Wikileaks Bombshell: Obama Sent Plane Of FBI Agents To Frame Julian Assange (Video)

When the President of the United States sends a team of FBI agents to another country to frame someone who is not a U.S. citizen, and does so under the guise of trying to help said country better equip themselves to fight off hackers but gets caught, is that news? Thanks to an interview this week published in Katoikos with Ogmundur Jonasson, the interior minister of Iceland when Obama pulled this stunt, now we have even more proof of how morally bankrupt both Obama and the Democrat party truly are.

Why are we just learning about this now? At the time, the mainstream media (otherwise known as the true purveyors of “fake news” in this country), didn’t seem to think that the story was newsworthy. Perhaps you might be wondering what were they did find newsworthy and reported on instead, right?

US Cancels Arms Sales To Saudi Arabia, But There’s A $115 Billion Problem

In a surprise move, the United States has announced that they will halt sales certain munitions sales to Saudi Arabia yesterday, citing growing concerns about “flaws” in Saudi targeting in the Yemen war, which is leading to a huge number of civilian deaths. Officials quoted in Reuters described a “systemic, endemic” problem with Saudi targeting in the war, and decided that they could no longer sell certain “air-dropped” weaponry to the Saudis. The shift is surprising, as US officials have repeatedly claimed support for the Saudi war, but it isn’t necessarily a huge shift.

So much for unity! EU in disarray as MEPs threaten to start their OWN Brexit talks with UK

Guy Verhofstadt, the EU Parliament’s chief negotiator, savaged representatives from the European Council and threatened to start up his own talks with the UK if MEPs are not given a leading role in the Brexit process. His astonishingly blunt ultimatum will alarm European leaders and signals the start of a long and acrimonious war between the Council, which represents the interests of the individual member states, and the Parliament which speaks for the euro elite in Brussels.
