MUST-READ: 16 Unanswered Questions About The Las Vegas Shooting That Mainstream Media Doesn't Want To Talk Abou

- The public is not being told the truth about what really went down in Las Vegas

Oct 04 05:24

Donald Trump as the Slave Master of the Black Athlete Plantation

First, let’s get this out of the way. The NFL kneeling protests have nothing to do with the flag or the anthem. They are about the persistent problem of racism in America, especially with regard to policing. Trump and his army of racist overseer trolls can try to spin it anyway they want, but it’s about racism. (Trump lamented that white NASCAR drivers don’t bother us with this nonsense.) They can act all butt-hurt about how much the flag means to them, but it’s not about the flag. It’s a common racist trick to make any unwanted racial protest an “attack on America.” Martin Luther King, Jr. and the civil rights activists of the 1960s were routinely called “communists” who wanted to “destroy” America. Trump’s pathetic attempt to make this about the flag only reinforces the fact that this is about racism. “It’s not what the black people say it is. It’s what I say it is.”

Slaughter In Las Vegas

***
Was it a lone wolf attack or something more sinister? It’s too soon to know. One gunman able to kill or wound hundreds of people single-handedly raises suspicions.

Nearly two dozen rifles and other firearms allegedly found in his room begs an obvious question. How could anyon get them into the hotel unnoticed? How many suitcases and/or satchels are needed to transport this arsenal, along with munitions?

Footage has emerged of the 32-135 suite in Mandalay Bay hotel from where Stephen Paddock, 64, opened fire on an outdoor festival in Las Vegas on October 1.

The video, shot in January 2016 by Jeff Bridges who was visiting the city, shows layout of the suite and the location of the festival through the window.

The Cost of Empire

Americans must challenge Trump's policies in North Korea and Yemen that stem from imperial priorities.

As the war of words between the governments of Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un has spiraled into childlike name-calling and escalating military threats, the world shudders at the possible consequences. The Pentagon has reportedly estimated that a North Korean attack with conventional weapons against the South would kill 20,000 people a day; but deaths could reach the millions in the event of a nuclear war.

Meanwhile, in Yemen, the U.S. is already participating militarily in what humanitarian aid groups have labeled crimes against humanity
***
When our government threatens whole nations with annihilation, or participates in massive cruelty and collective punishment in far-away places, it is important to at least try to understand why this happens. While these crimes are illegal (even Trump's threats against North Korea are prohibited by the U.N. charter) and nothing could justify them, our political leaders and policy analysts nonetheless fill the mass media with rationales that often win at least tacit support from many people who should know better.

At his local Starbucks, Las Vegas shooter remembered for berating his girlfriend

The workers behind the counter at the Starbucks inside the Virgin River Casino in Mesquite, Nev., winced whenever Stephen Paddock and his girlfriend, Marilou Danley, lined up for their usual beverages.

That’s because Paddock had a nasty habit of berating Danley in public. “It happened a lot,” Esperanza Mendoza, supervisor of the Starbucks, said Tuesday.

Stephen Paddock, who killed at least 58 people and wounded hundreds more in Las Vegas on Sunday with high-powered rifles, was prescribed an anti-anxiety drug in June that can lead to aggressive behavior, the Las Vegas Review-Journal has learned.

Records from the Nevada Prescription Monitoring Program obtained Tuesday show Paddock was prescribed 50 10-milligram diazepam tablets by Henderson physician Dr. Steven Winkler on June 21.

The screenings, sponsored by Jewish advocacy group B’nai Brith Canada, are timed to coincide with Waters’ own tour across the country.

Karen Rodman, an organizer with the Canadian Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) coalition, which calls for an international boycott of Israel over the way it treats Palestinians and violates international laws, said that the film’s tour is part of a wider “smear campaign” to discredit Waters and the movement>>>

Washington’s craven, cowardly, moronic vassal states in UK, Germany, France, Italy, Netherlands, Belgium, Poland, and the rest of the EU/NATO idiots are, by their cooperation with Washington, begging for their own destruction.

Erdogan Says Turkey No Longer Needs EU Membership, Son Slams European "Infidels"

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Sunday that Turkey no longer needs EU membership.

His son Bilal who plays an important role in Turkey’s politics went even further and described the Europeans as “gavur” (indifels).

The comments come after 12-year-long accession talks with Brussels grind to a halt.

“The EU failed us in a fight against terrorism,” Erdogan said on Sunday, though he also suggested the bloc still needed Turkey.

“If the EU is going to leap forward, there is only one way to do so. And it is to grant Turkey membership and start an action of cultural and economic growth,” Erdogan said.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel said in an election debate last month it was clear Turkey should not join the EU and entry talks should end, despite it being a crucial NATO ally.

Well, Edrogan certainly made his position abundantly clear regarding the this screed against the EU!!

Escobar: The Future Of The EU Is At Stake In Catalonia

Nano-Franco is Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy, whose heroic shock troops were redeployed from a serious nationwide terrorist alert to hammer with batons and fire rubber bullets not against jihadis but … voters.

At least six schools became the terrain of what was correctly called The Battle of Barcelona.

Extreme right-wingers even held a demonstration inside Barcelona. Yet this was not shown on Spanish TV because it contradicted the official Madrid narrative.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

How Spain, and the rest of Europe define, and work with, the Catalonian referendum, in a peaceful, responsible, adult way, is definitely going to define the future of the EU itself.

US Dominated Security Council Tightens Savage Sanctions on North Korea, Intentional Provocations to War

One can take passages from “The Pentagon Papers” and simply replace the name “North Vietnam” with “North Korea,” and we have an exact description of United States aggression toward North Korea today; this juxtaposition, on page 580 of the Bantam Edition of “The Pentagon Papers,” would read as follows:

“There may be a limit beyond which many Americans and much of the world will not permit the United States to go. The picture of the world’s greatest superpower trying to pound a tiny backward nation into submission on an issue whose merits are hotly disputed, is not a pretty one. It could conceivably produce a costly distortion in the American national consciousness and in the world image of the United States—especially if the damage to North Korea is complete enough to be ‘successful.’ The most important risk, however, is the likely Russian, Chinese and North Korean reaction to intensified US air attacks, harbor-mining, and ground actions against North Korea.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Any US first strike against North Korea will almost assuredly bring in China in North Korea's defense.

This country has morphed into an international bully, for the benefit of the bankers, war mongers, and munitions makers. None of this belligerence can possibly be comprehended as good for We the People. And if the following information is correct, we may well be looking at World War III sooner rather than later. As reported last month by rt.com:

US aircraft carrier group to be dispatched to Korean Peninsula amid rising tensions

The article goes on to state: "A US carrier group led by the USS Ronald Reagan will join US-South Korean naval drills that will take place near the Korean Peninsula in October, Japanese media report, citing the South Korean Defense Ministry.
On Monday, the ministry revealed its plans in a report it submitted to the National Assembly, Japan’s Asahi Shimbun reports. According to the report, Seoul asked Washington to send the USS Ronald Reagan from the US Navy’s 7th Fleet, based in the Japanese town of Yokosuka, Kanagawa Prefecture, to join the exercises scheduled for October."

This is confirmed by an article, dateline yesterday, from americanmilitarynews.com:

Report: US sending USS Ronald Reagan nuclear-powered aircraft carrier to Korea for military drills

Oh, and there is one, very specific problem with the USS Ronald Regan:
Contamination of the USS Ronald Regan from the Fukishima nuclear response, was vastly under-reported.

So what better "target" could the Occupied Unhinged Surveilled States of Amerika possibly provide, than a radioactive ship it cannot completely decontaminate as the "sacrificial lamb" for a false flag against it, to be blamed on North Korea?

Palestinians React to Opening of First US Military Base in Israel

Despite the long-term military cooperation between the United States and Israel, the establishment of the first US military base inside Israeli territory takes military cooperation with Israel to a whole new level, with US troops present in anticipation of any possible future offensive against Israel.

Mohammed Abu Allan, a West Bank-based journalist who covers Israeli affairs, believes the US-Israeli military base is an additional indicator of the importance of the strategic military cooperation between the Americans and the Israelis, which has been materialized with the completion on Aug. 27 of a deal signed in November 2016 to purchase 17 F-35 fighters.

He told Al-Monitor,

“According to the Israeli media, this military base is established in light of attempts by Hamas and Hezbollah to obtain high-precision rockets. The objective of this step is to allow Israel to intercept long-range missiles in its next potential war with Hezbollah and Hamas and their main ally Iran.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The establishment of this US base in Israel is most likely about a coming war against Iran.

Are You Ready to Die?

In other words, the United States no longer has a media. It has a propaganda ministry for the military/security complex, the neoconservatives, and the Israel Lobby. And the idiot Americans sit in front of the TV and absorb the propaganda, and they read the New York Times and think that they are sophisticated and in the know.

If you were the Russian government, would you conclude that your country was the next to be attacked militarily by Washington? If you were the Russian government, you would know that Washington/NATO cannot possibly attack Russia except by surprise nuclear strike. Knowing this, if you were the Russian government, would you sit there and wait on the strike? Imagine yourself the Russian government listening day in, day out, to endless wild improbable charges against Russia. What can Russia possibly conclude other than this is preparation of Western peoples for a nuclear attack on Russia?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, a word, here; WRH and you are precisely on the same page on this issue, so please don't use that damned statement "Nowhere in the West is there a sign of intelligence"; a lot of the independent media, like us, are deeply concerned about what seems to be unfolding at the national and international level, and sharing this information with the public, the best we can can.

Of course, for these efforts we are shunned, laughed at, and having to deal with 10 to 30 attacks against Mike's server, daily.

The cold, hard reality is that we live in an unjust, corrupted (alleged) civilisation: so the telling of truth is always associated with paying a heavy price for doing so.

Trust me, Dr. Roberts, we understand this, because we live with paying that price... on a daily basis.

False flag in Vegas shooting?

False flags always target the psychological state of mind of the public. Mind control is the goal.

To boil it down, a false flag is an operation staged to blame someone for a crime, someone who didn’t commit the crime.

Why? Because by blaming that person or group, and by convincing many others to blame that person or group, you achieve an important objective.

Simplistic over-exaggerated version: “Last night, a homeless man was found shot dead in an alley. The gun was found next to his body. The Mayor’s fingerprints were on the [planted] gun. The Mayor was arrested at his office. The election nears. The Mayor’s opponent now appears to have a clear path to victory…”

Less simplistic version: “…the worst mass shooting in US history. Stephen Paddock, 64, has been named as the Las Vegas shooter. He is dead. He killed 58 people at a concert and wounded 515 others. In the Congress, calls are rising for new gun control laws…”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why is it that when a Muslim commits an act of terror, the government says do not blame all Muslims, but when a gun owner commits a crime, the government says blame all gun owners and take away their guns?

Slaughter in Las Vegas

Was it a lone wolf attack or something more sinister? It’s too soon to know. One gunman able to kill or wound hundreds of people single-handedly raises suspicions.

Nearly two dozen rifles and other firearms allegedly found in his room begs an obvious question. How could anyon get them into the hotel unnoticed? How many suitcases and/or satchels are needed to transport this arsenal, along with munitions?

Dead men tell no tales, so his account of what happened won’t be told. Witnesses on the scene suggested multiple shooters. One unnamed individual insisted there were more than one. It would seem likely given the high casualty count.

Even using a semi-automatic weapon, one shooter able to cause this much carnage singlehandedly begs a couple of questions. Were others involved? Was the incident as reported or a false flag?

It’s reminiscent of multiple July 22, 2011 shootings on Norway’s Utoeya Island, scores of children killed, blamed on Anders Breivik, called a lone gunman.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Steve Lendman's questions on this horrific incident yesterday, lead, very practically, to the same conclusion that Mike and I have drawn: this was a false flag, the purpose of which cannot be made immediately discerned, except to be politicised by the consistent screams of Democrats for more gun control.

But looking at the firepower he apparently had at his disposal, how was Stephen Paddock able to get his hands on a machine gun which is practically illegal to own in this country?!?

Pakistan's ruling party nominates ousted PM Sharif to lead it

The ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PMLN) party nominated ousted premier Nawaz Sharif as its leader on Monday, a government minister said, hours before it used its parliamentary majority to amend a law to allow him to be re-elected party chief.

Sharif resigned as prime minister in July after the Supreme Court disqualified him for not declaring a source of income. He was also forced to step down as president of PML-N, though he kept control of the party and installed Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, a loyalist, as prime minister.

The party’s state minister for interior, Talal Chaudhry, said a parliamentary meeting of the ruling party chaired by Abbasi had nominated Sharif as its leader. He said Sharif would be formally re-elected president in a session scheduled for Tuesday. “He will become party president tomorrow, God willing,” Chaudhry said

New York Army National Guard soldiers head to Ukraine for training mission

More than 200 soldiers from the New York Army National Guard departed Monday for a nine-month mission to Ukraine.

The soldiers — most of whom are from 2nd Squadron, 101st Cavalry Regiment, stationed at Niagara Falls Air Reserve Station in Niagara Falls, New York — will join the Joint Multinational Training Group-Ukraine, according to a press release from the New York Division of Military and Naval Affairs.

Also deploying with the group are soldiers from the 27th Infantry Brigade Combat Team headquarters and other National Guard units from across New York.

The training group teaches tactics and staff work to five Ukrainian army battalions at the International Peacekeeping and Security Center, near Yavoriv, Ukraine. They are joining troops from Canada, Denmark, Lithuania, Poland and the United Kingdom on the training mission.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

How many troops, actually, from these countries, plus US troops, are actually in Ukraine at this time?!?

And what, precisely, are these Western trainers training the Ukrainian Army to do?!? Whatever the flowery language used by Col. Dennis Deeley, this appears to be about one thing, and one thing only; Ukraine's and NATO's military ultimately engaging Russia in war, as a US proxy.

When Did Congress Vote to Aid the Saudi’s Yemen War?

The bill introduced by a bipartisan group of House members last week to end the direct U.S. military role in the Saudi coalition war in Yemen guarantees that the House of Representatives will vote for the first time on the single most important element of U.S. involvement in the war—the refueling of Saudi coalition planes systematically bombing Yemeni civilian targets.

In doing so, moreover, the bipartisan bill, H. Con. Res. 81, will provide a major test of Congressional will to uphold the War Powers Act of 1973, which reasserted a Congressional role in restraining presidential power to enter into wars without its approval in the wake of the Vietnam War debacle.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US government's collusion in Saudi war crimes in Yemen, sickens me, morally. And what the Saudis are doing here, in this no-win military conflict, is pretty damned horrific.

The Saudi bombing runs are indiscriminately killing Yemeni infants and children; the Saudi royals, including Prince Salman, are probably laughingly referring to it as "pre-emptive birth control."

Because, with US military assistance, Yemeni ports are closed, no food can get it. This is causing massive malnutrition, leading to death, particularly among Yemen's children.

And if that were not enough to add insult to injury, there has been a huge (perhaps weaponised) explosion of a cholera outbreak, said by the Red Cross to probably exceed one million cases by the end of this year.

The joint US/Saudi genocide in Yemen reminds me very much of the response to one of the Vatican Legate, upon hearing that women and children were with the men at the seige of Montsegur, France, where the Church's army was in the process of exterminating the Cathars. His remark was: "Kill them all: God will find his own."

Catalan Leaders Seek to Make Referendum Binding

Catalan leader Carles Puigdemont has submitted the results of the the October 1 referendum to the Cataloina parliament, looking to make the vote official. It was a decisive “yes,” with an impressive turnout made doubly impressive by the violent Spanish police crackdown throughout the region.

The more immediate concern is to do something about that crackdown, however. Puigdemont is seeking international mediation following the vote, saying he wants to reach an understanding with the Spanish government, and avoid a “traumatic break.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The level of violence visited upon the Catalans by the Spanish police during this referendum very much reminds one of the level of violence inflicted by Franco's fascist police upon the demonstrators of his era.

And in this age of instant video and communications, there was no way for Rajoy to suppress what the world saw on Sunday:

Iran Deploys Tanks, Artillery to Iraqi Kurdish Border, Kurdish Officials Say

Talk of Iraq, Iran, and Turkey responded to Kurdistan’s secession vote with military action seems to be growing more serious. Kurdish officials now say that Iran has deployed a dozen tanks and accompanying artillery to their border with Iraqi Kurdistan.

Kurdish officials say the tanks can be seen from their side of the border, dubbing the deployment a “dangerous escalation.” The Iranian government presented it as part of a joint military drill with Iraq.

NETANYAHU AND ERDOGAN FACE OFF OVER KURDISH REFERENDUM

Following the referendum in “Kurdistan,” Turkish President Recep Erdogan and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu are now engaged in a war of words over who is responsible for balkanizing the Middle East.

During a televised speech following the Kurdish referendum in Northern Iraq Recep Erdogan accused Israel and their intelligence agency, the Mossad, of manipulating the events leading up to the ‘yes’ vote. Upon seeing the Kurds in what is called ‘Kurdistan’ waving Israeli flags, Erdogan made his thought clear, saying “This shows one thing, that this administration (in northern Iraq) has a history with Mossad, they are hand-in-hand together.”

This has been a major point of debate between the two sides concerned with the Kurdish referendum, with Israel being the only nation to support Kurdish independence. Erdogan made this clear in his plea to Iraqi Kurdish leaders, asking them if they were “aware of what [they] are doing? Only Israel supports you.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The larger question is, what is Turkey actually prepared to do to prevent the existence of ain independent Kurdistan?!?

And what is Israel actually prepared to do to thwart Turkey's doing this?!?

ANOTHER MASS SHOOTING, ANOTHER GRAB FOR GUNS: 6 GUN FACTS

Nothing is more deplorable than hijacking human tragedy to push an unrelated political agenda. A mass murderer taking the lives of some 60 people in Las Vegas this week has nothing to do with the majority of lawful firearms owners in the United States who aren't and have no intention of ever killing another human being.

Yet the knee-jerk reaction of many emotionally-driven people in the face of an overwhelming tragedy is to shift public debate back to gun control and even banning guns altogether.

Emotional and irrational responses in the face of overwhelming circumstances is part of human nature and require patience.

Yet another part of being human is then appealing to our ability to reason. To reason we must have facts.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have two words for yesterday's horrendous shooting: false flag.

The government's narrative is falling apart like a badly made, cheap shirt, with alternate videos, and statements, very much in conflict with the "lone wolf" perp theory the government is trying to cram down our collective throats.

And there is nothing, so far, in the guy's background which at all fits the pattern of a serial killer.

Demcrats, rarely ones willing to allow a good crisis go to waste, are screaming for more gun control, which is their thoroughly predictable response.

But why no images of the gun which, allegedly did most of the killing and maiming?!? Is it perhaps because machine guns like this are almost impossible for average civilians to actually purchase and own?!?

One has to wonder; which of the alphabet soup agencies, blessed by some of those in the Amerikan Deep State, felt that they needed this level of distraction right now?!?

Folks, just in case you didn't get the memo, the US government is heading toward one of two, thoroughy terrifying scenarios here; a world war, or a complete economic collapse. These very sombre realities have passed from the speculative phase to the reality phase rather recently; it is not a question of if, but when.

I cannot see precisely from where the scenarios with Russia, China, North Korea, or Iran may actually be going; I didn't quite inherit the "Nostradamus Gene" in my DNA.

However, Paul Craig Roberts, one of the most sober, responsible analyists I know, and respect, wrote an article this last spring that I think all Americans need to read:

Washington Plans to Nuke Russia and China

This would be to prevent any further further rise of the Chinese yuan and the Russian ruble in the world's economy, and protect the hegemony of the US dollar.

That those in the Bowels of Power in the Occupied, Unhinged States of Amerika, are even thinking this way is enough to scare the stuffing out of me.

Putting the Las Vegas Massacre & Catalonian Pro-Secession Vote In Context

I fully expect more chaos. Why?

Very simple. The USSA/NATO/Zio-NAZI Empire is dying and like all dying dinosaurs, it is lashing out in its death throes. As it sees the end approaching it uses every dirty trick in its reptilian arsenal to try to retain the supremacy to which it has grown accustomed.

Teenagers With School Starting Times Before 8:30 A.M. May Be At Particular Risk Of Experiencing Depression And Anxiety Due To Compromised Sleep Quality, According To A Recent URMC Study.

Led by URMC clinical assistant professor in Psychiatry Jack Peltz, Ph.D., the study, recently published in Sleep Health, not only reinforces the theorized link between sleep and adolescent mental health, but is among the first to demonstrate that school start times may have a critical impact on adolescent sleep and daily functioning. The findings provide additional evidence in the national debate over how school start times impact adolescent health.

How I Got Fired – Philip Giraldi

Exposing Jewish power in America has real consequences.

Two weeks ago, I wrote for Unz.com an article entitled “America’s Jews Are Driving America’s Wars.” It sought to make several points concerning the consequences of Jewish political power vis-à-vis some aspects of U.S. foreign policy. It noted that some individual American Jews and organizations with close ties to Israel, whom I named and identified, are greatly disproportionately represented in the government, media, foundations, think tanks and lobbying that is part and parcel of the deliberations that lead to formulation of U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East.

Inevitably, those policies are skewed to represent Israeli interests and do serious damage to genuine American equities in the region.

Turn Away in Disgust? Dr. Frankenstein Did, But Our Leaders Can Not

I think we do know that terrorist organizations have an interest in using drones…We’ve seen that overseas already with growing frequency. I think the expectation is that it’s coming here imminently. I think they are relatively easy to acquire, relatively easy to operate, and quite difficult to disrupt and monitor.e ~ FBI Director Christopher Wray

One need not delve into the finer philosophical points about any moral equivalence when considering that what FBI Director Christopher Wray told Congress yesterday is obvious. Namely, that terrorists, adversaries – call them what you will – are likely to employ weaponized drones against U.S. targets at home and abroad. Getting huffy or outraged about it won’t change anything. We use weaponized drones because we can. And so will others.

AMERICA: THE DICTATRESS OF THE WORLD

On July 21, 1821, John Quincy Adams, who would go on to become the sixth president of the United States, warned that if America were ever to abandon its founding principle of non-interventionism in foreign affairs, she might well become the dictatress of the world.

Adams issued his warning in a speech he delivered to Congress, a speech that has gone down in history with the title “In Search of Monsters to Destroy.”

Adams was referring to the fact that the United States was founded as a constitutional republic, one whose military forces did not go around the world helping people who were suffering the horrors of dictators, despots, civil wars, revolutions, famines, oppression, or anything else. That’s not to say that America didn’t sympathize with people struggling to experience lives of freedom, peace, and prosperity. It was simply that the U.S. government would not go abroad to slay such monsters.
Here is how Adams expressed it:>>>

‘Here We Are Again’: Australian Media Exasperated By America’s Lack Of Action On Gun Control. The Country Has Also Suffered Deadly Mass Shootings, But Unlike America, It Has Enacted Concrete Legislation To Make Sure It Doesn’t Happen Again.

When confronted with news about America’s latest deadliest mass shooting at an outdoor concert in Las Vegas on Monday, Australian news anchors on channel ABC24 reacted with exasperation.
“Here we are again, same sort of thing we’ve already seen Orlando, we’ve seen Virginia Tech — Sandy Hook is the one that rings out in my mind — and yet again we’re sitting here this morning talking about yet another one,” one said.

America:The Dictatress of The World

When the Constitution called the federal government into existence, the last thing the American people wanted was a powerful military. They were overwhelmingly opposed to what they called “standing armies,” which was a term used describe a big, permanent military establishment. That was why there was Pentagon, no big, permanent military-industrial complex, no CIA, and no NSA for more than 100 years after the country was established. The American people didn’t want those types of governmental apparatuses to be part of our nation’s political system.

The reason Americans were so opposed to standing armies is because they believed that standing armies constituted a grave threat to their freedom and economic well-being. They knew, from both first-hand experience and through history, that dictators and despots used powerful military establishments to destroy the freedom and prosperity of the citizenry, oftentimes in the name of keeping them safe, secure, and prosperous.

THE WHITE PRIVILEGE OF THE “LONE WOLF” SHOOTER

No expensive wall along the Mexican border would’ve prevented this. No Muslim ban stopping immigrants and refugees from a few randomly selected countries from reaching our shores would’ve slowed this down.

Stephen Paddock’s whiteness has already afforded him many outrageous protections in the media.

Just consider President Donald Trump. This morning, Trump tweeted, “My warmest condolences and sympathies to the victims and families of the terrible Las Vegas shooting. God bless you!” That’s fine, but Trump doesn’t even seem angry. It’s peculiar that he didn’t call the shooter a “son of a bitch,” like he did the NFL players who took a knee during the anthem. He didn’t create an insulting nickname for Paddock >>>

Another Mass Shooting, Another Grab For Guns: 6 Gun Facts

By Tony Cartalucci

Nothing is more deplorable than hijacking human tragedy to push an unrelated political agenda. A mass murderer taking the lives of some 60 people in Las Vegas this week has nothing to do with the majority of lawful firearms owners in the United States who aren’t and have no intention of ever killing another human being.

Yet the knee-jerk reaction of many emotionally-driven people in the face of an overwhelming tragedy is to shift public debate back to gun control and even banning guns altogether.

Emotional and irrational responses in the face of overwhelming circumstances is part of human nature and require patience.

When Did Congress Vote to Aid the Saudi’s Yemen War?

***
The starvation and cholera epidemic are the consequences of a multi-faceted strategy aimed at creating such civilian suffering as to finally break the resistance of the Houthi-Saleh forces. The Saudi strategy has included:

-Targeting of hospitals, markets and agricultural infrastructure.
-Destruction of cranes necessary to offload any large-scale humanitarian assistance at the main port of Hodeida and refusal to replace them with new cranes.
-A naval blockade that has strictly limited shipping of food, fuel and other necessities to Hodeida port.
-Closing down the civilian airport to prevent delivery of humanitarian aid.
-Destruction of roads and bridges necessary for delivery of humanitarian aid.
-Closing down the Cetral Bank of Yemen – the only institution in Yemen that was providing liquidity to millions of Yemenis>>>

Sure, let's wait a few months, at which time there will be another mass shooting.

Every gun massacre is an advertisement for guns. The stocks of gun manufacturers soared today, casino stocks fell.

North Korea Would Be Stupid to Trust the U.S.

To many mainstream pundits, the solution to the crisis in Korea is for U.S. officials to sit down and “talk” to North Korea in the hopes of negotiating a mutually beneficial agreement. While it won’t guarantee that a deal will be worked out, they say, “talking” is the only chance there is to resolve the crisis.

They ignore an important point: Any deal that would be reached would involve trusting the U.S. government to keep its end of the bargain. And trusting the U.S. government would be the stupidest thing North Korea could ever do. That’s because as soon as U.S. officials found it advantageous, they would break the deal and pounce >>>

Paul Craig Robberts: Are You Ready to Die?

Glenn Greenwald of The Intercept exposes the fake news put out by the US Department of Homeland Security (an euphemistic name for a Big Brother operation that spies on US citizens) that Russia hacked 21 US state elections, news that was instantly spread around the world by the presstitute media. The propagandists running Homeland Security were contradicted by the state governments, forcing Homeland Security to retract its fake news claims.
***
What is the point of US security agencies such as Homeland Security, CIA, FBI, NSA constantly filling the propaganda machine known as the American Media with lies about Russia? Russia must wonder as well. Russia knows that they are lies. Russia knows that it does no good to refute the lies because the West has a Propanganda Ministry instead of a media. Russia knows that Washington told lies about the Taliban, Saddam Hussein, Gaddafi, Assad, Iran. What does Russia conclude from the constant stream of lies about Russia that flow out of Washington and are
presented as truth by the Western presstitutes?

If you were the Russian government, would you conclude that your country was the next to be attacked militarily by Washington?>>>
