URGENT: Syrian Soldiers Expel ISIL from Strategic Town in Raqqa; Resafa Freed

This is the key cross roads on the way to Raqqa! Now it will get interesting.

TEHRAN (FNA)- The Syrian army captured the key town of Resafa after fierce clashes with the terrorists in Western Raqqa, forcing a large number of the terrorists to retreat from their positions towards other areas in the province.

Syrian soldiers managed to liberate the important town and the crossroads of Resafa in Southwestern Raqqa.

A military source, meantime, announced that Damascus troops are currently defusing the mines and bombs planted by the ISIL terrorists in the town.

Now that they have captured Resafa, Army troops are able to secure the path to Deir Ezzur as Resafa is the junction of the roads from Raqqa city and Deir Ezzur province.

EXCLUSIVE: Moms Across America releases powerful new documentary exposing toxicity of GMOs and glyphosate

Moms Across America has just released a powerful new video called “Communities Rising” that exposes the devastating toxicity of GMOs and glyphosate. Watch the video now at this YouTube link, or watch it below.

GMOs and glyphosate are the leading toxins used in the mass poisoning of our children and our food soils. This mass poisoning is being underwritten and promoted by the deceptive media, prostituted science shills (who are routinely bribed to promote toxic poisons) and even Monsanto-funded “smear” groups that attack clean food activists. That’s why it’s so important that you not only watch this film but share it with others.

Every mom in America needs to see this documentary. Every consumer of food urgently needs to be informed of the systemic poisoning that’s being conducted right now, across nearly the entire U.S. food supply.

Watch this important film, share it with others.

SCOTUS strikes a blow to whiny snowflakes

The Supreme Court on Monday ruled unanimously in favor of the Asian-American rock band The Slants right to trademark its “offensive” moniker after the Patent and Trademark Office refused to register the name on the grounds that it is disparaging to Asians.

Pulling the Plug (On the legitimacy of the federal government)

Washington has been completely corrupt for well over a century. This is nothing new. Mark Twain wrote about it in the late 19th century. The difference is this: Washington invades every area of our lives today. It is doing what the public generally does not want it to do: interfere. The public wants to be left alone. The public does not want to concern itself with politics. But the breakdown of consensus is pushing politics onto the front pages of the few newspapers that still publish printed editions. We are watching what appear to be preteen boys arguing over marbles in the school yard. The stakes are so low, and the rhetoric is so high, that people who normally don’t pay much attention to politics cannot get away from it.

In Major Free Speech Victory, SCOTUS Rules for 'The Slants' and Strikes Down Federal Trademark Restriction

Today the U.S. Supreme Court ruled 8-0 in favor of the Asian-American dance-rock band The Slants, holding that the First Amendment protects the rights of the band's members to register a trademark in their band's "offensive" name.

At issue in Matal v. Tam was a federal law prohibiting the registration of any trademark that may "disparage...or bring...into contemp[t] or disrepute" any "persons, living or dead." The Patent and Trademark Office cited this provision in 2011 when it refused to register a trademark in the name of The Slants, thereby denying the band the same protections that federal law extends to countless other musical acts. Justice Samuel Alito led the Court in striking down the censorious rule. "We now hold that this provision violates the Free Speech Clause of the First Amendment," Alito wrote. "It offends a bedrock First Amendment principle: Speech may not be banned on the ground that it expresses ideas that offend."

World On The Precipice As Russia Threatens To Shoot Down U.S. Jets, U.S. Refuses To Back Down

By Brandon Turbeville

The world is now perhaps closer to World War Three than it has been in five decades as the situation in Syria is heating up yet again. In less than 24 hours, the United States has attacked the Syrian military, Iran has launched missiles into Syria, Russia is threatening to shoot down American planes, and the United States is digging in its heels and threatening to continue to provoke both the Russians and the Syrians.

While that about sums up the current micro-version of the situation, it’s important to get a rundown of just what led up to the precipice we are all standing on...

Snyder Warns: “A Full-Blown Eruption Of The Yellowstone Supervolcano Would Have The Potential Of Being An Extinction Level Event”

Is it possible that the Yellowstone supervolcano is gearing up for a major eruption? If you follow my work on a regular basis, then you already know that I spend a lot of time documenting how the crust of our planet is becoming increasingly unstable. Most of this shaking is taking place far away from the continental United States, and so most Americans are not too concerned about it. But we should be concerned about it, because a major seismic event could change all of our lives in a single instant. For instance, a full-blown eruption of the Yellowstone supervolcano would have the potential of being an E.L.E. (extinction level event). That is why it is so alarming that there have been 296 earthquakes in the vicinity of the Yellowstone supervolcano within the last 7 days. Scientists are trying to convince us that everything is going to be okay, but there are others that are not so sure.

Syrian "Rebels" In Turmoil After Qatar Crisis

The ongoing Qatar crisis has had an unexpectedly adverse outcome among the Syrian "rebels", in many cases formerly known as al-Qaeda, who expect the crisis between two of their biggest state backers - Saudi Arabia and Qatar - to deepen divisions in the opposition to President Bashar al-Assad. Together with Turkey and the United States, Qatar and Saudi Arabia have been major sponsors of the insurgency, arming an array of groups that have been fighting to topple Syria's Iran-backed president. However, in recent weeks the Gulf support has been far from harmonious, fuelling splits that have set back the revolt.

Quoted by Reuters, Mustafa Sejari of the Liwa al Mutasem rebel group in northern Syria said "god forbid if this crisis is not contained I predict ... the situation in Syria will become tragic because the factions that are supported by (different) countries will be forced to take hostile positions towards each other."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I think the proverbial "other shoe" fell yesterday, when the US military downed a Syrian fighter jet. Now, Russia has declared US fighter jets as "fair game" in the war in Syria.

Israel Has Been Secretly Funding Syrian Rebels For Years

Earlier, when discussing why the Syrian "rebels" fighting Assad are in "turmoil", we said that as a result of the ongoing Qatar crisis the various Saudi and Qatari supply chains supporting the rebels, both in terms of weapons and funding, had dried up due to the diplomatic fallout involving Qatar and Saudi Arabia. "Together with Turkey and the United States, Qatar and Saudi Arabia have been major sponsors of the insurgency, arming an array of groups that have been fighting to topple Syria's Iran-backed president."

We concluded that "the rebellion against Assad now seems moot, which is why the most likely outcome is a continued phase-out of support for forces fighting the Syria government until eventually the situation reverts back to its pre-2011 "status quo."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why am I not surprised?!?

Are Russia And The Saudis Planning A Natural Gas Cartel?

At the same time, Russia and Saudi continue to give indications of a possible OPEC 2.0 scenario, in which a possible Russian membership is on the table. This would confront the market with a renewed and stronger oil cartel, although the overall strategies need to be adjusted. At the same time, Saudi Arabia, via its oil giant Aramco has openly stated to be interested in global gas investment opportunities, starting in Russia’s Siberian region. While the media still looks at the current discussions as a pure crude oil cooperation strategy, some see another development on the horizon. The real power of OPEC, non-OPEC cooperation would increase if they would not only include a crude oil production cut, but also integrate the other (hidden) cartel, the Gas Exporting Countries Forum (GECF). An OPEC 2.1, including gas exporters, would really block any negative developments in the market, even shale oil and gas.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This certainly could be a game-changer, economically, for both countries.

Blockade or No Blockade? Saudi Arabia’s ‘Mission-Qatar’ Tumbles Down

Apart from Turkey, whose president Erdogan went to the extent of relating the Qatar-blockade to a “death sentence”, a number of other countries both from Asia and Africa have refused to follow the House of Saud in its footsteps, marking yet another defeat for the king-to-be prince Muhammad bin Salman, who is not only known to have masterminded the Yemen war but also known particularly for injecting a new ideological framework to Saudi Arabia’s regional ambitions, a framework premised upon surgical weakening of countries that have the potential to challenge Saudi hegemony. This is becoming evident from the way people in Turkey have started to point fingers to UAE for spending US$3 billion for funding coup attempt in Turkey, a possible scenario which certainly points to the increasing Saudi dissatisfaction with the way regional politics has tilted to its disadvantage.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Looks as though Prince Muhammad bin Salman's bid to "isolate Qatar" is falling apart at the seams!!

Democracy Is a Front for Central Bank Rule

Inflation aside, in fact interest rates declined, as my sometime co-author Dave Kranzler reports. http://investmentresearchdynamics.com/has-the-fed-actually-raised-rate...
Despite this publicized “rise” of the Fed funds rate, the 10-year interest rate on Treasuries “has declined 30 basis points this year. Thus for certain borrowers, the Fed has effectively lowered the cost of borrowing.”

Kranzler goes on to point out that

“the spread between the 30-day Treasury Bill and the 10-yr Treasury has declined this year from 193 basis points to 125 basis points – a 68 basis point drop in the cost of funding for borrowers who have access to the highly engineered derivative products that enable these borrowers to take advantage of the shape of the yield curve in order to lower their cost of borrowing.”

“Transgenic Corruption” and GM Crops in Argentina

GM crops in Argentina are approved by people from the same companies that produce and market them, a new investigation by the journalist Dario Aranda reveals.

The agency in which these people are collected is called the National Advisory Committee on Agricultural Biotechnology (Conabia). According to Aranda, it is composed of representatives of Monsanto, Bayer, Syngenta, Indear/Bioceres, Pioneer/DuPont, Don Mario, ASA (Seed Companies’ Association), Aapresid (Association of No-Till Producers – farmers who grow GM crops and use herbicide applications to control weeds), Argenbio and INTA (National Institute of Agricultural Technology). Out of 34 members, 26 belong to the same companies that produce seeds or are scientists with conflicts of interest.

Belgium Extends Air Force Mission against Syria

Speaking during his visit to Canada, Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel confirmed that Belgium has extended the Belgian Air Force’ mandate for missions in Syria until the end of 2017.

Michel said the decision would be formally confirmed during the next session of the Council of Ministers in Brussels. The small European country has earmarked another 17 million euro for the operation.

The current mission mandate was coming to a close in June, but it will be extended for another six months. Under the new mandate, some 100 personnel and four fighter jets will be stationed in Jordan.

Michel said this would show that Belgium is

“a reliable partner in the fight against terrorism”. He added: “This is a strong signal towards our partners. Belgium is a reliable partner in an international coalition. We also want to show we are operational. After the NATO summit, this proves we are taking up our responsibility within Europe.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Belgium is fighting an illegal war to create regime change in Damascus; if one of their fighter jets takes down a Russian or Syrian fighter jet, you can bet that more sorties against Syrian or Russian troops will be met with defiance.

Mattis: North Korea Is a War We Don’t Want

peaking to Congress this week, Defense Secretary James Mattis was asked by Rep. Tim Ryan (D – OH) why the United States doesn’t just launch an immediate war to “take out” North Korea before they have the capability of hitting the United States.

While a lot of Trump Administration officials talk up the idea of a war with North Korea as something they’re eagerly anticipating, Mattis was a lot more realistic, insisting it is a “war that fundamentally we don’t want,” and that it would be the most serious US war with the most serious consequences since 1953.

Mattis went on to warn that a war with North Korea would involve massive shelling of Seoul, South Korea, oneof the most densely packed cities on earth, and that while he believes the US would ultimately win the war, they’d only do so “at great cost.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

We are close to the end of the "100 days" Chinese President Xi Jinping asked of President Trump, when the two got together at Mara Largo.

Xi asked Trump for ‘100 days’ to deal with North Korea problem

It could just be that President Xi doesn't have as much "clout" with its client state as President Trump believed, but there is nothing current North Korean State rhetoric which indicates that Kim Jung Un has any notion, or desire, to give up his nuclear weapons development program.

I have to wonder what further "diplomatic efforts" will move forward, before this program becomes a real problem for the US.

And as someone who lives in the state of Hawaii, you could reasonably say that Mike and I are a little nervous about this!!

Justices rule ex-Bush officials can't be sued in terrorism case

The Supreme Court on Monday said former George W. Bush administration officials can’t be held liable for the unlawful detainment and abuse suffered by undocumented immigrants detained after the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

In a 4-2 ruling, the court ruled that six men arrested during an investigation into the attack after they were found living in the country illegally could not sue the officials, including former Attorney General John Ashcroft and former FBI Director Robert Mueller.

Paris attack on police vehicle on Champs-Elysees

A man rammed his car into a police vehicle in Paris' Champs-Elysees shopping district Monday, prompting a fiery explosion, and was killed in the incident, authorities said. France's anti-terrorism prosecutor opened an investigation.

Interior Minister Gerard Collomb told reporters near the scene that the driver died after the "attempted attack" on security forces. He said the car was carrying explosives.

No police officers or passers-by were hurt, the Paris police department said. It is unclear why the attacker drove into police, though the Interior Ministry spokesman said the incident was apparently deliberate.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

More blowback for these endless wars for resources in the Middle East and Africa.

Reuters: Saudis say they have arrested Revolutionary Guards saboteurs....

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF, in fact this claim is true, it is a definite escalation of bad blood between these two nations, and President Trump has made it very clear that in any such situation, he has put his hat in with the Saudis.

And when Saudi officials say that these people are being "questioned", they are most likely being tortured, to produce a "confession" most convenient to the Saudi claims against them.

Erdogan Slams US for Building Air Bases in Syrian Kurdistan: Slams US Soldiers Being 'Arm in Arm' With Terrorists

With the Kurdish YPG advancing into the ISIS capital of Raqqa, and US officials already designating Mayadin the “next ISIS capital,” there’s clearly a lot more US-backed invasions for the Kurds to take part in, and the US is looking to make the backing of those invasions more convenient, setting up airbases in Kurdish territory.

That’s not sitting well with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who expressed particular outrage at the US having an air base in the Kurdish town of Kobani, along the Turkish border and reiterating his long-standing opposition to the US having ties with the YPG at all.

“I find the US approach to the YPG in no way chic,” Erdogan insisted, saying that US soldiers and military officers are “hand in hand, arm in arm” with a group that Turkey considers a terrorist group. He conceded that he understands the US doesn’t consider the Kurds terrorists.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So let me get this straight: the Unhinged, Surveilled State of America is building illegal bases in Syria, totally without the permission of that country, in order for Kurds to be able to found a homeland, at the expense of sovereign Syrian territory?!?!?

And the following two very disturbing articles are featured, one from Saturday, and one from today at globalresearch.ca, indicating that the building of illegal US forward bases continues in Syria, and what the Kurds are doing to ethnic Arabs near Raqqa:

Turkey Wants to Continue Accession Talks With European Union

Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said that Ankara is willing to pursue the talks with the European Union on getting full membership in the bloc and renew the Customs Union agreement with Brussels.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Ankara is willing to pursue the talks with the European Union on getting full membership in the bloc and renew the Customs Union agreement with Brussels, Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said.

"Turkey is willing to pursue full membership talks with the EU and renew the Customs Trade [deal]," Yildirim said at a joint press conference on Monday with his Bulgarian counterpart Boyko Borisov in Ankara as quoted by the Anadolu news agency.

The Turkish minister stressed that the European Union had to "revise its future vision" and then make relevant decisions on the talks with Ankara.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The question is, after the failed coup attempt in Turkey,and Erdogan having gone full tilt-buggie dictator over his own people, does the EU really want Turkey as a member?!?

US-led coalition says hostile actions of Syrian pro-regime forces will not be tolerated

The US-led coalition conducting operations against the Islamic State terror group (outlawed in Russia - TASS) will not tolerate the hostile actions of pro-regime forces toward its own and partner forces in Syria, the coalition’s headquarters said in a statement provided to TASS.

The statement confirmed that on June 18, a US F/A-18 E aircraft had shot down a Syrian Su-22 bomber jet which, according to the coalition, had "dropped bombs near SDF (the Syrian Democratic Forces - TASS) fighters south of Tabqah." Before the incident, the coalition’s aircraft "conducted a show of force and stopped the initial pro-regime advance toward the SDF-controlled town."

"The Coalition presence in Syria addresses the imminent threat ISIS in Syria poses globally. The demonstrated hostile intent and actions of pro-regime forces toward Coalition and partner forces in Syria conducting legitimate counter-ISIS operations will not be tolerated," the statement adds.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Did anyone cobbling together this bit of codswallop, alleging to be a factual press release, not realise how "1984-Speak" it sounds to logical readers?!?

The United States military is illegally inside Syria, and not at the behest of the Syria government, in order to accomplish regime change in Damascus.

The "good reason" is ISIS, but the real reason is "regime change", and anyone with two brain cells to rub together, understands this.

So who, please is the "bad guy" in this scenario?!?

(Hint: it is NOT the Syrian government or military, or the Russian military, who were invited to but down the western-funded and trained Jihadis!!)

Senate GOP shifts focus to Lynch

Senate Republicans are clamoring to hear from Loretta Lynch after former FBI Director James Comey raised concerns about her involvement in the Hillary Clinton email investigation.

Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee are seizing on Comey’s testimony earlier this month that he was concerned over the former attorney general telling the FBI to refer to the Clinton investigation as a "matter," which resembled the Clinton campaign line.

The move could allow Republicans to attempt to pivot away from the investigation into Russia's election meddling — which top GOP lawmakers have signaled belongs to the Intelligence Committee — and focus on Lynch, who has long been a target of Republicans.

Sen. John Cornyn (Texas), the No. 2 Senate Republican who is a member of both the Intelligence and Judiciary committees, said it “would be very helpful” for Lynch to testify before the Judiciary panel, which oversees the Justice Department.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Couldn't happen to a more deserving human being!

But if Congressional Republicans think, for one second, that they can get her to testify without a subpoena, they're dreaming.

And she might very well ignore a Congressional subpoena, and be looking for a long-term stay in a country with which the US has no extradition treaty.

In fact, were I her, that is precisely what I would be doing, and right the heck now!!

RADIOACTIVE WASTE FLOWING FREELY INTO COLUMBIA RIVER BECAUSE THERE’S NO MONEY TO STOP IT

A member of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency recently informed the public that radioactive waste from the decommissioned Hanford nuclear power plant is ‘flowing freely’ into the Columbia river.

The mighty Columbia river is the largest river in the Pacific Northwest region of America, flowing down from Canada, winding through eastern Washington state and along the border between Oregon, ultimately moving through downtown Portland and into the Pacific. The Hanford site, located near Kennewick, WA is up river from a million or so people, not to mention the wildlife.

Constructed in the 1940’s as part of the Manhattan Project, the plant was decommissioned after the Cold War, leaving behind some 53 million gallons of high level radioactive waste. Proposed as a Superfund site in 1988, Hanford is an uncontrollable ecological and public health disaster.

As noted in the list of national Superfund sites:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The poisoning of this nation goes on unabated, and no one in DC seems to give a damn!

I have to wonder what the cancer rates are in the areas affected, but I believe some cancer clusters have been classified, due to the sensitive nature of what polluters were creating to fulfill defense contracts.

REPORT: LEAST PEACEFUL NATIONS ON EARTH WERE ALL GIVEN ‘DEMOCRACY’ BY THE US

The United States has a pattern of pushing for regime change in sovereign nations, while ignoring the consequences. One major result from the list of countries the U.S. has invaded this century is that they make up the top of the “least peaceful” nations in the 2017 Global Peace Index.

The 2017 Global Peace Index is another reminder that the United States’ seemingly endless pattern of pushing for regime change in sovereign nations that have done nothing to the U.S. has indeed resulted in a significant amount of blowback—most of which will be misrepresented, if not ignored by the mainstream media.

GULF TENSIONS FLARE AS SAUDI ARABIA SHOOTS IRANIAN FISHING BOATS, KILLS FISHERMAN

An Iranian fisherman was shot and killed on Saturday by the Saudi coastguard, which accused him of entering Saudi waters, Iran's interior ministry said, fuelling tensions between the regional rivals.

"Two fishing boats were in the Persian Gulf and strayed due to high waves. The Saudi coastguard say the boats entered Saudi waters and killed one of the fishermen," Majid Aghababaie, head of border affairs at the interior ministry, said in a statement published by Iranian media.

"We are pursuing this matter to determine if the Iranian boats had crossed the Saudi border or not, but the action of the Saudis does not comply with humanitarian and navigational principles," Aghababaie said.

"Even if the boats had entered Saudi waters, the coastguard were not authorised to open fire," Aghababaie added.

Foreign ministry spokesman Bahram Ghastliness issued a similar statement.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

While it is uncertain that the Saudi Coast Guard was given orders to shoot to kill, no matter what, this assassination of an Iranian fisherman is not going to improve relations between Saudi Arabia and Iran.

Two women feared dead in Grenfell Tower were 'threatened with legal action' after questioning fire safety

Two women feared dead in the Grenfell Tower tragedy were allegedly threatened with legal action after they campaigned for improved fire safety.

Mariem Elgwahry, 27, and Nadia Choucair, 33, reportedly received letters ordering them to stop their campaign for improved safety.

Both women were fighting the Kensington and Chelsea Tenant Management Organisation for building improvements, with help from the Radical Housing Network, The Mirror reports.

Pilgrim Tucker, who works for the group, told the paper: “The TMO’s response was to threaten tenants with legal action and send out letters. Nadia and Mariem would have received them too.

Webmaster's Commentary:

HOW THE U.S. TRIGGERED A MASSACRE IN MEXICO

We have testimony from people who say they participated in the crime. They described some 50 trucks arriving in Allende, carrying people connected to the cartel. They broke into houses, they looted them and burned them. Afterward, they kidnapped the people who lived in those houses and took them to a ranch just outside of Allende.

First they killed them. They put them inside a storage shed filled with hay. They doused them with fuel and lit them on fire, feeding the flames for hours and hours.

Great; now, the DEA can cause "collateral damage" in other countries, just by taking a gamble with intel.

FEARS OF A GRENFELL TOWER COVER-UP AS LABOUR MP WHO LOST ARTIST FRIEND URGES POLICE TO CARRY OUT RAIDS TO STOP FIRMS AND COUNCILS FROM DESTROYING EVIDENCE

Fears of a Grenfell Tower cover-up has led to calls for raids to take place on businesses and authorities at the centre of the investigation into the deadly inferno.

The Prime Minister and the Metropolitan Police have been urged to seize any potentially-incriminating evidence before it can be destroyed.
Council chiefs and building firms could face manslaughter charges over the disaster, in which at least 58 have been killed, a former Director of Public Prosecutions has said.

And Labour MP David Lammy demanded urgent action, claiming contractors were expunging details of their work on the tower from their websites.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That the pattern of decision making which lead to this inferno could possibly be covered up in such a way as to prevent getting to the bottom of what really happened here, is an horrific insult to those who died as a result of this blaze, and their families.

Theresa May condemns 'sickening' attack on Finsbury Park Muslims

A man died and 10 people were injured after a van was rammed into a crowd of worshippers near a mosque in north London, in the latest terror attack to hit the UK this year.

Eyewitnesses reported chaotic scenes as the incident unfolded just after midnight, when evening Ramadan prayers had finished.
A 48-year-old white man was wrestled to the ground by members of the public and then arrested at the scene on suspicion of attempted murder, authorities said.
British Prime Minister Theresa May said the attack was directed at Muslims and condemned it as "every bit as sickening" as deadly Islamist attacks that hit the country in recent months.
Latest developments:

-- Police say they believe there was only one man in the van.
-- An imam stopped the crowd from hitting and kicking the attacker.
-- Witnesses saw a man underneath the van.
-- Eight people were hospitalized, all Muslim.
-- Van appears to be a hire vehicle from a company in Wales.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is as sick and senseless as are the wars for resource domination which drive them.

My first cousin is an exceptionally bright person, a professor emeritus of Constitutional Law at a prestigious university.

We frequently talk about countries like the US and UK investing in their universities to create usable, workable alternative energy, then patenting it, as a a revenue stream.

I cannot fathom that the "deep state" in both countries does not recognise how critical this is to preventing further wars for resources, and will not move forward with this, with all the blood and money spent on battlefields - and beyond - as in this case of terror - which, ultimately, would not have to happen.

Neither oversight, negligence, nor malfeasance lies at the root of the Glenfell Tower fire in West London. Strip away the sickening obfuscation and platitudes, peddled by the usual coterie of confected politicians, and the roots of this disaster lie in the virulent disdain, bordering on hatred, of poor and working class people by the rich in a society which in 2017 is a utopia for the few and a dystopia for far too many.

What a mouthful!: Costa Rican president accidentally eats wasp live on air during speech

President Luis Guillermo Solís Rivera faced an uninvited guest at a press briefing on his nationwide tour in the Zona Sur region of Costa Rica on Friday.

While mid-sentence at a press briefing at the inauguration of an asphalt plant in Paso Real, Puntarenas, a wasp flew at the president who accidentally swallowed the insect.

"I ate it, I ate the wasp!" Solís exclaimed, before bursting out laughing along with his entourage and assembled journalists.

"You don't see that every day... they're going to send it to CNN, pure protein!" the president laughed as he was handed a bottle of water by a member of his team.

Planned Parenthood got more than they bargained for when the organization recently took to Twitter to post about “what women want in four words.”
The organization’s Twitter account was adding to an already trending Twitter discussion using the hashtag “WhatWomenWantIn4Words.” Many of the top tweets advocated for more women at the decision making tables, less domestic violence, an end to the “rape culture,” an end of the gender “wage gap,” and so forth.

How To Smuggle US Nuclear Triggers to Israel

On May 3, 2017, the Department of Homeland Security released the most detailed files to date on the 1979-1983 Richard Kelly Smyth/ Arnon Milchan/ Benjamin Netanyahu krytron smuggling ring ... A lightly-enough-redacted synopsis of the affair with biographical details makes it clear the Department of Justice knew Arnon Milchan was implicated. "At some time in 1979 [Arnon Milchan] and [Richard Smyth] entered into a conspiracy to illegally export certain U.S. Munitions List items, specifically, krytrons from the United States to the Republic of Israel without the required authorization of the United States Department of State." In August 19, 1985, diplomatic correspondence with US Customs, the Israeli Ministry of Defense confirmed that it was the end user of the krytrons ...

A Curious National Home

... In general parlance, the Jewish People consists of all the Jews in the world, more than half of whom live outside Israel and are citizens of other states. They are not asked if they want the State of Israel to represent them. Goes without asking ... Jewish religious law says that "a Jew, even if he commits a sin, is still a Jew." Adopting the Christian - or any other - faith is certainly a sin, but the convert still remains a Jew, whether he wants it or not. The Nation-State of the Jewish People belongs to all of them. Or, rather, they all belong to the Nation State of the Jewish People ... The fact is that every Jewish child in Israel carries the Bible deep in their consciousness. Meaning: Jews are special. Jews are unique. It's "them" and "us". The whole world against us.

According to the report, the IDF is in regular communication with rebel groups and its assistance includes undisclosed payments to commanders that help pay salaries of fighters and buy ammunition and weapons, according to interviews with about half a dozen Syrian fighters.

UPDATED: Iran Launches Missile Strikes at ISIL to Avenge Tehran Terrorist Attacks

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iran's Islamic Revolution Guards Corps launched multiple missile strikes at ISIL centers in Syria's Deir Ezzur in retaliation for the June 7 twin terrorist attacks in Tehran, the IRGC said in a statement issued on Sunday, adding that the mid-range missiles were fire from bases in Western Iran.

"The Takfiri terrorists' command center, concentration points and logistical centers used for assembling cars for suicide attacks in Deir Ezzur region in Eastern Syria came under attack by the IRGC moments ago in a move to punish the terrorists for the twin attacks on the Iranian parliament and the holy shrine of the late founder of the Islamic Republic, Imam Khomeini, on June 7," the statement issued by the IRGC Public Relations Office said late this evening.

According to the source, units from the Syrian Arab Army attempted to cross SDF front-lines in order to rescue their fallen pilot; however, they were turned away by the latter.

This resulted in a fierce confrontation that is currently ongoing between the two entities near the key town of Resafa in western Al-Raqqa.

PetroDollar System In Trouble As Saudi’s Keep Liquidating U.S. Treasuries (Video)

While the US dollar continues to ride high, few Americans are aware just how much the strength of our currency relies upon the petrodollar system. Because the world runs on oil, and Saudi oil is denominated and traded in US dollars, the American dollar has retained its strength for decades. But the petrodollar system, and the strength of the American dollar, may be in jeopardy.

In the following video, Right Wing News looks at how Saudi Arabia’s foreign exchange reserves have continued falling ever since the oil price drop. Even with the recent recovery in oil prices, their reserves have continued to drop, and they have been liquidating their US Treasury holdings at a record pace. To make things even worse, something smells fishy about Saudi’s ‘official’ oil reserves figures. And as oil continues to trend lower, it may take Saudi Arabia and the dollar down with it.

This constant barrage of attacks against Trump is designed to ensure that the public’s attention is never diverted toward the real Russian colluders: the Clintons.

In the following video, Right Wing News looks back at the Clinton’s uranium deal which ultimately placed 20% of American uranium interests in Russian hands. Needless to say, the Clinton foundation was handsomely rewarded for its role in brokering said deal. What are the chances that the mainstream media will actually do their job and investigate this instead of continuing this insane witch hunt against Trump?

58 people confirmed or presumed dead from London tower fire

London police on Saturday raised to 58 the number of deaths either confirmed or presumed following the horrific inferno that turned the city’s Grenfell Tower public housing block into a charred hulk.

Public anger is mounting as residents and neighbors demand answers for how the blaze early Wednesday spread so quickly and trapped so many of the tower’s 600-odd residents. British media have reported that contractors installed a cheaper, less flame-resistant type of exterior paneling on the 24-story tower in a renovation that was completed just last year.

A New Wave of Left-Wing Militants Is Ready to Rumble in Portland—and Beyond

One week after two men were stabbed to death while defending two girls from a racist and Islamophobic diatribe on a commuter train, Portland, Oregon, is bracing for more violence. On Sunday, over the mayor’s objection, a right-wing group will hold a pro-Trump “free speech rally,” while anti-fascist activists are preparing to protest the gathering.

It’s a pattern that has played out across the country since the election: Pro-Trump events from Pikeville, Kentucky, to Berkeley, California, attract white nationalists, neo-Nazis, and Klansmen along with other provocateurs from the so-called “alt-right.” And, predictably, “antifa” counterprotesters mask up to oppose them—often physically.

Revealed: the tower block fire warnings that ministers ignored

The extent to which government ministers failed to act on expert warnings about inadequate fire safety rules before the Grenfell Tower disaster in London can be revealed by the Observer.

As public outrage mounted and political pressure grew on Theresa May over the tragedy, former chief fire officer Ronnie King – who is secretary of the all-party parliamentary group on fire safety – said urgent requests for meetings with ministers and action to tighten rules were stonewalled.

King also revealed that ministers had failed to insist that life-saving sprinkler systems were mandatory in the design of new schools in England, despite clear recommendations in reports commissioned by the government itself, which advocated their use.

IN RHODE ISLAND, STUDENTS AND PARENTS MUST LET SCHOOLS SPY ON THEM DAY AND NIGHT THROUGH THEIR LAPTOPS

A majority of the Rhode Island school districts with "1-1" programs where each student is issued a laptop have a blanket policy of spying on the students and everything they do on their laptops, during, before and after school hours, on or off school premises, without any evidence (or even suspicion ) of wrongdoing.

The schools analogize this to school locker searches, in which students are denied any Fourth Amendment protections. But that (very dubious) principle is being stretched beyond the breaking point, as school lockers are in schools, whereas these laptop searches are being carried out remotely, everywhere, anywhere.

This isn't so different from the policies asserted by employers who require workers to take devices home, then assert the right to spy on them using those devices, installing their own certificates so they can stage "man-in-the-middle" interceptions of private sessions between employees and their email providers, financial institutions, etc.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

How "1984" of Rhode Island!!

Were I a parent with a kid in school where these devices are mandatory, I would immediately pull that kid out of that school, and put them in a private school where such policy does not exist.

Failing that, because of the cost, I would "vote with my feet", and move to another state where this policy is not pursued.
