BITTER HILLARY BLAMES ‘FAKE NEWS’

Hillary Clinton on Thursday decried the spread of fake news online, calling it an “epidemic” that Congress should take action against.

“We Killed the Mainstream Media” THIS Journalist Got the System to React to Its Own Crimes - Mac Slavo

Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe appeared at David Horowitz’s Freedom Center and made the case for how his brand of bold journalism has turned the tide against the lies, planted & paid assets, scripted media talking points and cross-collaboration that tried to purchase a presidency for Hillary Clinton.

Despite outward appearances of a fair and free election in the world’s foremost democracy, the conflict of interest has reached a peak – literal presstitutes have been bought out and told to frame virtually everything in a light favorable to what was supposed to be the first female president.

Now, citizen journalists and determined activists have exposed that system. Wikileaks proved that the Democrat primary was rigged to keep Bernie from getting the nomination, and they tried to fix it for Hillary in the general election – but the anger and principled opposition among the American people kept that nightmare from happening.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Good on O'Keefe; but he didn't do this all on his own!! :-)

Lieberman: Israel Attacked Syria to Prevent Hezbollah Getting WMDs

Throughout Syria’s Civil War, Israel has repeatedly, despite insisting they are neutral, attacked Syrian military targets, launching several airstrikes and artillery attacks and Syrian military bases and convoys over the years. They virtually never make official statements on the attacks.

Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman, however, isn’t a big fan of this official coyness about the strikes, and not only publicly confirmed the attacks, but claimed Israel had to attack Syrian military targets to try to prevent Hezbollah from acquiring weapons of mass destruction (WMDs).

Lieberman did not indicate what sort of WMDs he is talking about, and is likely just exaggerating the scope of the run-of-the-mill conventional weapons Hezbollah is always getting shipments of to prepare for the next time Israel invades southern Lebanon.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I hope that whatever Russian influence exists over Israel will be used to get this kind of military grandstanding by Israel to stop, or that Russia will "teach Israel a lesson" which prevents it from doing this kind of military exercise in Syria again.

WELLS FARGO IS SUCCESSFULLY CONVINCING JUDGES THAT FORGED ARBITRATION AGREEMENTS ARE LEGALLY BINDING

When you sign up for a Wells Fargo account, you're required to sign an arbitration "agreement" giving up your right to sue the company, and requiring you to have your case heard by an arbitrator paid for by -- and dependent on -- Wells Fargo instead.

At least 2,000,000 times, Wells Fargo employees were pressured -- on pain of termination and lifelong blacklisting from the finance industry -- into opening fake accounts in their customers' names. These accounts existed solely to accrue fees, which, in many cases, made their customers overdrawn (or simply generated suspicious seeming queries against their credit records), and when that happened, their credit records were dinged, which can cost you a job, a loan -- even your house if you can't refinance your mortgage.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If you have any account with Wells Fargo, CLOSE IT NOW.

This is the only way to make the corporate executives (who should have done jail time for signing off on this practice) understand that you are not to be played with.

Any ding on your credit report can have negative repercussions for decades. If Wells Fargo has caused this to happen, they need to fix it, in your presence, with your sitting down with your bank manager until it gets sorted.

WASHINGTON POST APENDS "RUSSIAN PROPAGANDA" STORY, ADMITS IT MAY BE FAKE

It was the closest the Washington Post would come to retracting the story, which has now been thoroughly discredited not only by outside commentators, but by its own editor.

The appended note in question:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Please remember: this is the exact, same WaPo which did this, as reported by Greg Mitchell in March of 2014 at thenation.com:

Eleven Years On: How ‘The Washington Post’ Helped Give Us the Iraq War

And what, precisely, does this mean?

That WaPo will obediently, and consistently, vomit the codswallop the US government tells them to, in order to support the US government's agenda, no matter how completely false that agenda might be.

As the readers of this blog are aware, I do advocate that the adult kids of all who are running for Congress should be made to enlist in the military, and into units which are most likely to see front line action in any US war.

But I think we need to take that one step further here, and advocate that the adult kids of all presstitutes working for the generally morally reprehensible lamestream media, who constantly lie to affirm the US government's narrative, should be pressed into military service as well, and in units most likely to see action in any wars the US government generates.

Because, perhaps, upping the ante by having their kids in military service, we just might see a little less slavish surrender to the endless false narratives of the US government, when trying to launch their wars of conquest.

I'm just saying, it might make at least a small difference in the way issues are covered, don't you think?!?

NYT, WAPO FAKE NEWS STILL BRINGING REAL GUNS TO IRAQ, KILLING THOUSANDS

Fake news propagated by the US government and collaborating organizations such as the New York Times and Washington Post helped create an environment in which the US was able to illegally invade Iraq in 2003, killing at least one million and possibly upwards of two million people, including the deaths of some 4,500 US soldiers, according to a meta-study by Nobel-winning Physicians for Social Responsibility.

Just this November, nearly 6,000 people were killed in Iraq thanks to the conflicts that are still raging due to the invasion (which is ongoing), and it was not an atypical month – even more were killed in October.

Regarding the fake news that laid the groundwork for the US war of aggression, award-winning journalist Robert Parry notes that, for example, Judith Miller of NYT and Washington Post editorial page editor Fred Hiatt “repeatedly stated the ‘fact’ of Iraq’s hidden WMD as flat fact and mocked anyone who doubted the ‘group think.'”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Fake news from the presstitutes which generates wars and death should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of US law.

The Tide Is Turning Against the Oligarchs — Paul Craig Roberts

The ruling oligarchy and their presstitute media have become desperate now that they are losing control over explanations and Americans’ minds. Thus, they charge independent Internet journalists such as myself with being Russian agents peddling fake news. Recent legislation in the House of Representatives, the list of 200 alleged Russian agents, and the attacks on president-elect Trump from within the US intelligence community make it clear that pressures on truthtellers are increasing.

Internet sites that have comment sections make it easy for trolls to earn their blood money by slandering and misrepresenting truthtellers, thus aiding the oligarchs in their attack on truth.

Israeli Penetration Of The U.S. Media

The first step in fixing a problem is to acknowledge that it exists.

Next to nothing has been researched or written about the long-standing, ongoing, decades long penetration of the U.S. Mainstream Media by Israel and its vested spies within the US Government.

In fact many would argue that the Neo-Conservative movement is simply a front group for Israel and has thoroughly and openly taken over and corrupted the US Government in its legislative, executive, and judicial branches.

Moment a mom, 42, with breast cancer was 'violated' and reduced to tears by aggressive TSA agents who patted down medical port on her chest and 'tried to perform a body cavity search in public'

A woman fighting breast cancer said she was 'violated' by TSA officers who attempted to perform 'a body cavity search in public' after she alerted them of a medical cream in her bag.

Denise Albert, a morning show contributor and co-host of The Moms, a SiriusXM radio show, was traveling through Los Angeles International Airport on Sunday when the 'humiliating' experience left her in tears.

Albert detailed the experience of removing her wig, exposing the sores on her feet, and telling the TSA agents she had a medical port in her chest that she didn't want them to touch - a warning that was not heeded.

ISRAELI GOVERNMENT PUSHES NATIONAL BIOMETRIC DATABASE WITH CLAIMS OF SECURITY SUPERIORITY NOBODY THINKS ARE TRUE

There has been something of a push in recent years in different countries to build biometric databases of varying degrees. These efforts are typically marred by pushback and controversy, with countries like Argentina using these databases in order to have law enforcement chill its citizenry from protests in the streets, with our very own FBI rolling out its own biometric database that lacked the promised privacy oversight with which it had been billed. Despite the fact that you can nearly set your watch to the speed with which such lists will be abused, these previous efforts at least paid lip-service to the notion that the databases would focus only on criminals in their respective countries.

Creating the Narrative: Blaming Russia for Hillary’s Loss

We have already seen a tremendous amount of finger-pointing by the mainstream media (MSM) at the alternative/independent news media of being “complicit with Russian propaganda” regarding the presidential election. SHTFplan.com and several hundred other websites and blogs are implicated by the MSM as taking orders directly from Russia.

I take artistic license and hereby dub the MSM as being “Marxist State Media,” with the term being inclusive of the Television and Newspaper outlets. The term also includes the endless online Marxist proselytizing found on Facebook, Google (Zuckerberg owns it; therefore, Zuckerberg directs it), and other sites in the name of “social justice” or “benefit to the community.”

Mary Meyer Murder Mystery: A Diary That Revealed The Secrets Of JFK

Allen Dulles invited Meyer to be a full-fledged ‘principal operative’ for Operation Mockingbird, a secret campaign designed to heavily influence the media. Cord Meyer played a big role in the beginning as an organizer, whereas the organization recruited journalists to slant the views leaning to meet the demands of the CIA agenda.

High profile journalists were recruited in the heart of the industry, including famous popular newspapers (over 25 plus wire agencies) and television networks.

Journalists Struggle To Define ‘Fake News’ Even As They Declare War On It

In the weeks following Donald Trump’s unexpected victory in last month’s election, liberal journalists have launched an all-out assault on “fake news,” which some have blamed for the disconnect between political journalists and everyday Americans.

But many of those same journalists seem unable to agree on a consistent definition of what “fake news” is, oftentimes pushing leading conservative and alternative media organizations that provide ideological balance in the public forum under the same “fake news” umbrella alongside websites whose entire purpose is generating viral hoaxes.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Those pushing the viral hoaxes are supporting the government and corporate media's campaign to demonize the Independent Media (poison the well).

As for struggling with a definition of "fake news", the problem is that the presstitutes and whorespondents cannot admit the real definition, which is anything contrary to the official US Government and corporate dogma!

Bahrain authorities block Al Jazeera from GCC summit

Al Jazeera journalist Jamal Elshayyal was refused entry at Bahrain International Airport on Tuesday even though AJMN had followed all necessary procedures and submitted all requested documents to the relevant authorities on time.

"We applied for accreditation well before the deadline, submitting the names and passports as requested," Elshayyal said in Qatar's capital, Doha, after his return.

"I flew out to Manama this morning and upon reaching the immigration counter, I filled out the required form specifying I was a journalist and I was there to cover the summit.

"I was asked to sit on the side by the immigration officer who later informed me the Ministry of Information said Al Jazeera was not allowed to cover the event and I was rejected entry."

Sherif Mansour, Middle East and North Africa coordinator for the Committee to Protect Journalists, said he did not have details on the incident but noted the Gulf kingdom's track record on press freedom.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This guy is lucky; the Bahraini government has a nasty reputation with regard to press access.

And not only have peaceful Bahraini protestors been jailed, tortured in order to confess to crimes they did not commit and have received extraordinarily long sentences; but also, the first responders who cared for them have been jailed, tortured to confess to crimes they did not commit, and received extraordinarily long prison sentences.

The Al-Khalifa monarchy is sitting on a power keg, when all that peaceful protesters have asked the government to do is establish a constitutional monarchy.

But there most likely be a point where the protests go from peaceful to violent, and even calling in the Saudi military, as the Bahraini government has done several years back, will not work.

Before that happens, I sure as heck hope that the US Navy is deliberating where in the Middle East, the 5th Fleet could call home, as any new Bahraini government would find itself very hostile to the US government, as the US government has enabled the sitting Bahraini government with what are called "dual use" weapons.

WAR ON THE HOMELESS: CITIES ALL OVER AMERICA ARE PASSING LAWS MAKING IT ILLEGAL TO FEED AND SHELTER THOSE IN NEED

If you want to be a “Good Samaritan” to the homeless in your community, you might want to check and see if it is legal first.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The way things are going in this country, it is not too far fetched to imagine that the "crime" of homelessness will soon be punishable by as quick a trial and execution as is legally possible, because state and federal prison facilities are crowded to beyond capacity.

And bless Pastor Grover and bless Patapsco United Methodist Church, for their ministry in this way; I hope that the attorney who takes this case for them, regarding that 12,000 fine, wipes the floor with the City Council of Dundalk, Maryland, and that there is a reasonable answer found, including a place for the homeless to stay, and have their basic human needs met.

It is apparent to me that the mayor of Dundalk needs to have a conference call with the Governor of Utah, and right the heck now, because by the end 0f 2015, Utah reduced their number of homeless by 91%:

BRAZIL CRISIS: RIO RIOT POLICE BATTLE UNPAID WORKERS

Brazilian police have clashed with anti-austerity demonstrators in Rio amid a budget crisis in the state.

Many protesters were public workers who have not been paid in months.

Police used tear gas and stun grenades and at one point fired rubber bullets at demonstrators from inside a church near the state assembly building.

The clashes took place as legislators considered a range of spending cuts in an effort to tackle a huge deficit in Rio de Janeiro's state budget.

Hundreds of public sector workers had gathered outside the assembly building to protest against the measures.

During the clashes, police officers entered a nearby church and fired rubber bullets from a window. The Rio diocese protested against this "invasion" and said it would investigate.

Several people - both demonstrators and police - were injured.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This will not end well; the Brazilian government is broke, and out of options.

Any potential international loans, to prop up Brazil's economy from the outside, will come at usurious interest rates, and be difficult to pay back; and even then, if Temer is successful here, it will not fix the fundamental problems a broken economy, and of corruption and graft within the world of his elites. As reported at theeconomist.com on 1 December of this year:

Brazil’s president weathers multiple storms

And there is the question: will there be a point where the Brazilian military turn against Temer's government, and he has a real revolution on his hands?!?

Russia pipeline is security 'threat', US diplomat says

Russia’s Nord Stream II gas pipeline is a threat to European security, a US diplomat has said, amid calls for the European Commission to intervene.
Adam Shub, the deputy US ambassador to the EU, in Brussels on Tuesday (6 December), mentioned the Russian-German project amid other instruments he said Russia was using to “create division” in Europe and to erode “shared transatlantic values”.

EU Commission has stalled on appeals for a legal assessment.

He said the armed conflict in Ukraine was “just the front line” in the “malign action”, which extended also to the EU and the Western Balkans.

“There are [Russian] attempts to influence the policy debate, support for political parties, we know that, in the European Parliament, for NGOs … attempts to acquire assets on the energy front, Nord Stream - these are threats to Europe and to transatlantic security”, he said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Shub's codswallop, in denouncing Russia for doing everything the US government does, in terms of providing loans, supporting and attempting to influence various candidates and organisations who echo the US government narrative, demonstrates that the US government has, in basketball parlance, "got no game", in terms of being able to undo this deal.

This deal makes absolute sense for the German government and the German people, in order to keep fuel costs low.

In his petulant and sophomoric rant at the Ceps think tank conference, Shub comes off as almost thoroughly unhinged in his excoriating criticism of the deal, yet offers absolutely no concrete suggestions of what the German government "SHOULD" do, to get a better deal elsewhere.

And I would politely suggest to Mr. Shub that after last year's revelations of the fact that the US was spying on Angela Merkel and her ministers, neither she, nor any potential successor, is going to be very enthusiastic about listening to ANYTHING the US government has to say.

Obama administration spied on German media as well as its government

Tech Titans Team Up Block "Extremist Content" With Centralized Censorship Database

The spread of so-called "fake news" has captured the imagination of the entire world since being blamed for Hillary's stunning defeat on November 8th. The idea that they may no longer exercise complete control of the national media narrative, and therefore popular opinion, has mainstream news outlets and social media giants frightened to their core.

The tech titans of Silicon Valley are so frightened, in fact, that they've teamed up to create a centralized database which will allow them to "efficiently" block content simultaneously across multiple platforms. According to Yahoo News, the database is expected to be up and running in early 2017 and more companies could be brought into the partnership over time.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This will drive people to the new start-up social media that refuses to use that centralized censorship system.

JPMORGAN, HSBC, CREDIT AGRICOLE "BANK CARTEL" FINED $521 MILLION FOR EURIBOR RIGGING

With global bank stocks soaring on expectations - and hope - that financial sector regulation will be broadly swept away under Trump, today Europe did its best to show that, at least for now, the banks are not in the clear when the European Commission has fined JPMorgan, Credit Agricole and HSBC a total of €485 million ($521 million) for rigging the Euribor benchmark as European Union antitrust regulators wrapped up a five-year investigation into the scandal.

The three banks colluded on euro interest rate derivative pricing elements, and exchanged sensitive information, in breach of EU antitrust rules, the European Commission said on Wednesday in an e-mailed statement. JPMorgan was fined 337.2 million euros, HSBC got a 33.6 million-euro penalty and Credit Agricole must pay 114.7 million euros. Margrethe Vestager, the EU’s competition policy chief, said banks “have to respect EU competition rules just like any other company operating in the single market.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

JPMorgan made a quarterly profit of $5.4 billion, as of this January; Credit Agricole made $84,374,0800.00, US in 2015; and HSBC made $18.8 billion in 2015.

These fines are simply "cosmetic slaps on the wrist", to make investors think that the fundamental problems in the financial industry have been dealt with, when they really haven't.

And none of the leadership of these financial institutions who signed off on these practices get jail time?!?

Why am I absolutely not surprised at this?!?

Because when comes to financial malfeasance, the people deciding to do it are almost never jailed; and they are counting on the reality that the rich rarely eat their own.

Russia to supply Libya’s Haftar with arms in exchange of military base

Almesryoon reported that a map of an airbase it said was located near the Libyan city of Benghazi which will be transferred to Russia in exchange for arms supply, Monday.

According to Western reports, General Khalifa Haftar’s recent visit to Moscow along with his talks with Russian officials revolved around the need to import weapons in return for granting Moscow logistical and military privileges inside the Libyan territories.

Haftar wants to win Moscow’s support and recognition as the sole candidate for the country’s leadership as Russia’s influence in the world and the Middle East is on the rise, Russian Nezavisimaya Gazeta reported.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As reported at lybianexpress.com in August of this year:

As the US war in Libya moves into its third week, officials and analysts are seeing a lot of problems with their plans, but perhaps the biggest problem is one of their own creation, the Libyan leader and long-time CIA asset Gen. Khalifa Haftar. Haftar was a general of Moammar Gadhafi until 1987, when he was captured by Chad. The next year, he became a US proxy for an anti-Gadhafi insurgency, and after that collapsed, moved to Virginia, with occasional trips back to Libya for other failed US-backed plots. When NATO helped regime change in 2011, Gen. Haftar was quick to make his grand return, and has been trying to consolidate his power ever since. He announced a coup in 2014, which didn’t amount to much, and is now at the head of the army or so-called Dignity Operation loyal to Tobruk-based House of Representatives. “The United States and its allies can’t figure out what to do about Khalifa Haftar, the Libyan general whose refusal to support a fragile unity government has jeopardized hopes for stability in a country plagued by conflict.” The Washington Post wrote. “Hifter is threatening many of the Western-backed initiatives in Libya and the establishment of a recognized political power,” said Barak Barfi, a scholar at New America, a Washington think tank. “Hifter doesn’t have the strength on the battlefield to deliver on his promises to defeat Islamists, but he can act as a spoiler.”

So with the US having thrown this guy under the proverbial bus, he gets weapons, and support, in return for giving Russia a military base in Libya!!

I love the smell of irony in the morning; and had Hillary Clinton not insisted on the overthrow and assassination of Gaddafi, none of this, including Libya's civil war, would ever have happened in the first place!!

I can well imagine that some folks in the State Department and Pentagon are collectively tearing their hair out right now; the US government has just been effectively "neutralized" in Libya, and there really is not a damned thing the US government can do to change this, save declaring war on Russia.

And between it's weaponry problems; it's troop strength; it's money issues, and it's manufacturing capabilities, the US military is woefully unready to fight Russia at the moment.

“Beaten and Treated Like A Slave”: Cops Assault Innocent Man Who Fit Vague Description… Also A Cop

In this bizarre but telling case, police were ready to take down and punish their suspected culprit before even matching a good description.

Ignoring his attempts to clarify the situation and identify himself as a fellow officer, he instead found out what is like to have the shoe on the other foot and suffer the kind of police encounter that everyone know dreads – all force and no due process at all. Police state rising…

America’s Math Scores Are Getting Worse

When it comes to literacy in math, science and reading, American teens are far from top performers, according to new results from an international exam released Tuesday.

American teens posted uninspiring results on the 2015 Program for International Student Assessment, a test taken by a sample of 15-year-olds in 70 education systems around the world. Students’ scores in reading and science remained largely stagnant since the last time the test was administered in 2012, but scores in math dropped to lows not seen since 2006. The PISA exam is administered every three years.

The United States posted average scores in reading and science compared to other countries in the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, an intergovernmental group of 35 mostly industrialized nations. On math, the United States scored below average, with scores of both top- and low-performing students declining.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF, in fact, the Common Core American curriculum is actually working, why are American kids' math scores declining?!?

The short answer, with regard to Common Core, is that it is not working, and America's kids' test scores are suffering because of it.

Orange County Sheriff’s Deputies’ Once-Secret Log On Jail Informants Reveals Rampant Misconduct

An Orange County Superior Court judge released a trove of notes from a once-secret document kept by sheriff’s deputies detailing their involvement in a tainted informant program that has allegedly violated the rights of numerous defendants for years. The behavior of prosecutors and members of law enforcement described in the log raises significant questions about decades’ worth of criminal convictions in Orange County.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am glad these notes, even though heavily redacted, have finally seen the light of day.

This kind of behaviour on the part these deputies was unconstitutional, illegal, and completely immoral.

Practices like this are making an already broken prison system in this country even more broken than they were before, and guarantees the stupidly high rate of recidivism we see when convicts are released, and attempt to integrate with the rest of society.

Even if you are not a Michael Moore fan, his film "Where to invade next?" has a segment on a Swedish prison. The rooms in which they stay are clean and inviting,; and the sole focus of their incarceration is rehabilitation.

As reported at mik.com last year:

The darkest manifestation of American exceptionalism may be its prison system. The United States has the highest incarceration rate in the world: It has only 5% of the world's population, but one-quarter of its prisoners. U.S. prisons are dangerously overcrowded, house 10 times as many mentally ill individuals as state hospitals, keep people locked up for unfathomably long periods of time, are plagued by inmate abuse and hold a far greater percentage of the country's black population than South Africa did under apartheid. Nearly two-thirds of the inmates released every year return to prison; crippling discrimination in employment and housing encumbers the ones who manage to function. This is all to say that if you are convicted of an imprisonable crime in the U.S., you generally get shown little mercy. In Nordic countries like Sweden, which have far lower incarceration and crime rates, prison is about rehabilitation. And it works far more effectively. Sweden's prison system boasts impressive numbers. As the Guardian notes, in the past decade, the number of Swedish prisoners has dropped from 5,722 to 4,500 out of a population of 9.5 million. The country has closed a number of prisons, and the recidivism rate is around 40%, which is far less than in the U.S. and most European countries.

HR 6393 Will Put the Alt Media in Prison for Criticizing the Government

Do you remember when George Bush, in responding to criticisms of the destruction of the 4th Amendment because of his support of Patriot Bills One and Two, said “Either you are with us, or you are with the terrorists”.

We have an update on that draconian philosophy and it goes like this, “Either you are with us, or you are with the Russians”.

HR 6393 will ultimately jail members of the Independent Media for speaking out against government corruption. You will be branded as a Russian ally, a traitor. Conceivably, you could be jailed under the Trading with the Enemies Act.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There has to be a formal declaration of war before the Trading with the Enemies Act comes into play.

These talking toys can tell a defense contractor everything your kid says

you’re thinking of buying a talking toy for your child this Christmas, you’re really going to want to make sure to read the terms of service.

As Consumerist reports, several consumer groups have filed a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission against the makers of two talking children’s toys: The My Friend Cayla doll and the i-Que Intelligent Robot.

The problem with these toys, the complaint alleges, is that their terms of service allow them to record everything they hear and then send that information back to Nuance Communications, a voice recognition software company that supplies the underlying technology behind the toys, but that also does work as a defense contractor.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Retailers with any sense of honesty and morality should pull these toys off the shelves right the heck now.

What these toys are doing are grooming kids, and their parents, to accept massive, Orwellian surveillance inside their homes from the day they are born to the day they die.

THE DEEPENING OF THE DEEP STATE

Pretty obviously, the struggle between mainstream news and Web news climaxed over the election, with the mainstream overwhelmingly pimping for Hillary, and then having a nervous breakdown when she lost. Desperate to explain the loss, the two leading old-line newspapers, The New York Times and The Washington Post, ran with the Russia-Hacks-Election story — because only Satanic intervention could explain the fall of Ms. It’s-My-Turn / I’m-With-Her. Thus, the story went, Russia hacked the Democratic National Committee (DNC), gave the hacked emails to Wikileaks, and sabotaged not only Hillary herself but the livelihoods of every myrmidon in the American Deep State termite mound, an unforgivable act.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Just as have Chinese bloggers found ways around the "Great Firewall of China", so will American bloggers find their way around shutdowns and interruptions.

Such actions will be time-eaters, and annoyances, but that is all.

Considering the 3 NSA challenges which featured encryption Mike created and put up on the site, and the reality that that the NSA proved unable to solve them, getting around their strictures shouldn't be too difficult a feat.

And to the lamestream presstitutes who obligatorily vomit whatever narrative the government tells them to; the American people will never forget the lies which sent our brave military service members into two completely unnecessary wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, ultimately for private profit.

Lawyers: New court software is so awful it’s getting people wrongly arrested

Most pieces of software don’t have the power to get someone arrested—but Tyler Technologies’ Odyssey Case Manager does. This is the case management software that runs on the computers of hundreds and perhaps even thousands of court clerks and judges in county courthouses across the US. (Federal courts use an entirely different system.)

Typically, when a judge makes a ruling—for example, issuing or rescinding a warrant—those words said by a judge in court are entered into Odyssey. That information is then relied upon by law enforcement officers to coordinate arrests and releases and to issue court summons. (Most other courts, even if they don’t use Odyssey, use a similar software system from another vendor.)

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This company deserves to be sued out of existence for the damage it has done.

PENTAGON’S BIZARRE FUTURE PLANS: MEGACITIES AND URBAN WARFARE

Megacities, climate change, living habitats, dysfunctional social functions and the “remaining 1% represents the threat of 100,000,” are the context of a pentagon sponsored video revealed by The Intercept. The narrator speaks of environments not yet experienced in city landscapes but that are inevitable, with the military requiring an adaptation of urban warfare and a willingness to “drain the swamp of non-combatants” to engage in a “high intensity conflict” with the remaining “adversaries” within.

“Social structures are dysfunctional,” and therefore, alternate forms of governance have taken control, according to the narrator. The military must adapt to the new ways of war and must work within these “ecosystems” with minimal disruption to the non-combatant.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have just finished watching this video; and although the footage used was from countries other than the US, I had to wonder...is the US military leadership predicting such an horrifically dark, dystopian future for the United States as well?!?

If there was ever an advert for moving to the most lovely,isolated rural place you can find; growing your own food; and living off the grid, this film is it!!

FBI POLICY OF MANUFACTURING TERRORISM PLOTS REAFFIRMED BY APPEALS COURT

The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals issued a ruling that provides further support for the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and its policy of inducing individuals, typically Muslims, to plot acts of terrorism. The appeals court additionally backed the outcome of the notorious FBI sting operation against the Newburgh Four.
Mohamed Mohamud is a young Somali American man who was convicted of attempting to bomb a Christmas tree lighting ceremony in Portland, Oregon, after he was targeted in an FBI sting operation. He is currently serving a 30-year prison sentence.

His defense appealed a district court decision that affirmed his conviction. They challenged the fact that Mohamud’s “defense of entrapment” was rejected. They also challenged a district court’s decision not to suppress information collected through surveillance under section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That these FBI stings are enabled and upheld by the court, and confirmed as a perfectly normal way for the FBI to do its business ("softening up" idiots, and getting them to go along with any hairbrained scheme in order to gain a conviction) is one sick joke, and a very interesting commentary on the very concept of justice in this country.

Mike Pompeo, whom President-elect Trump has picked to head the CIA, was questioned on live TV by 'a Jewish American' caller who asked about Israel's nuclear weapons. The caller went on to mention "the Zionist-controlled media" and their false claims that Iran's former president Ahmadenajad wanted to "wipe Israel off the map."

Elites are fighting to keep us in the EU and undermine the will of the people

DURING the EU referendum David Cameron put out an official leaflet that could hardly be more explicit about the consequences of the vote: “This is your decision. The Government will implement what you decide.”

Yet much of the political establishment has refused to accept the result. Bristling with contempt for democracy these Remoaners are doing everything in their considerable power to thwart Brexit. The judiciary, media and Parliament are cynically exploited in their ruthless campaign of obstruction against the popular will.

The latest obstacle in the path to British freedom is the Supreme Court, which today begins its hearing to decide if the Government has to seek parliamentary approval before it can trigger Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty, the clause that signals the start of withdrawal from the EU.

When Truth-Telling Becomes Russian Propaganda

A previous article discussed House passage of the draconian US Intelligence Authorization Act, calling it a huge leap backwards, Senate passage and Obama signing it into law virtually certain.

It aims to counter nonexistent “measures by Russia to exert covert influence, including exposing falsehoods, agents of influence, corruption, human rights abuses, terrorism and assassinations carried out by the security services or political elites of the Russian Federation or their proxies.”

It calls truth-telling by writers like myself and many others “fake news.” It threatens speech, independent media (especially online) and academic freedoms – the hallmark of a fascist dictatorship, wanting information and views contrary to official ones suppressed.

Internet Censorship in US and Europe Is Coordinated

Western governments are censoring speech in Europe and the US, an obvious pattern that clearly shows coordination.

In the US, there is a congressional effort to fund intel agencies that will investigate alternative media for ties to Russian propaganda. Such investigations , if they occur, will retard this sector and make further, free-reporting difficult.

In Europe, efforts to control speech and reporting are actually being aimed at American communication enterprises such as Google, YouTube and Microsoft.

NOBODY DIED AT SANDY HOOK: It was a FEMA Drill to Promote Gun Control

Another substantial segment of the US population has taken a closer look at the evidence and drawn the conclusion it was a hoax, where no children really died: it was an elaborate psy-op to promote gun control.

VIRGINIA STATE COPS HAVE BLOWN A FORTUNE ON USELESS CELLPHONE SPYING GEAR

Muckrock has been sending Freedom of Information requests to state police forces to find out how they're using "cell-site simulators" (AKA IMSI catchers/Stingrays), and they hit the motherlode with the Virginia State Police. The VSP documents show that the force bought a $585,265 phone-spying device -- which came with its own modified Chevy Suburban as a kind of mobile casemod -- that they used 12 times, and which failed 4 times, meaning that the Virginia taxpayers were spending $50,000/use for a tool that failed two thirds of the time.

Proposed 'Anti-Semitism Awareness Act' is an Unconstitutional Mess

Sen. Bob Casey (D-PA) and Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) have introduced the Anti-Semitism Awareness Act which according to a statement on Casey's website is meant to "to ensure the U.S. Department of Education (DOE) has the necessary statutory tools at their disposal to investigate anti-Jewish incidents" on college campuses.

Citing a recent FBI report stating over half of all reported hate crimes in 2015 were of an anti-Semitic nature, the senators claim their bill is necessary to provide the DOE with the "firm guidance" it needs to determine "what constitutes anti-Semitism."

Seemingly shoe-horned into the end of the senators' statement is this line:

This act is not meant to infringe on any individual right protected under the First Amendment of the Constitution.

That's a relief, because someone reading the details of the bill who possesses a basic understanding of constitutionally protected speech would likely see it differently.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I'm a Christian pacifist activist, who on occasion, does criticize the Israeli government for things I believe will, ultimately, hurt both their citizens and the Palestinians. I am no "hater"; I just want to see justice done, for all peoples of the earth, and all governments taking the morally responsible "high ground" in their negotiations with other other countries.

But when you look at the apartheid theocracy Israel has become, (and when a guy like South African Bishop Desmond Tutu makes that observation, he knows what he is talking about!), one has to shake one's head in despair, and ask: was this the way the founders of the Israeli nation envisioned their country in the 21st century?!?

But if Israel wants to see a change in the world's attitude toward it, and the antagonism it receives for its choices, which sometime translates in the US as "hate crimes" against American Jews,the cold, hard reality is, they are going to have to change their behaviour toward, and treatment of, the Palestinians.

That will go one heck of a way toward ratcheting down the tensions there as well in the US.

I am against any hatred or bigotry based on faith or ethnicity, period, end of discussion; however, hate cannot be legislated against, because that will not truly resolve the problem.

Cop Charged With Manslaughter In Concealed Carry Motorist's Death Was Trained By DHS, FBI, U.S. Secret Service, & National Guard

Officer Jeromino Yanez is being charged with manslaughter for the killing of motorist Philando Castile in Minnesora last July. Official police archives reveal that the St. Anthony police department has recieved funding and training from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security for over a decade at least, and their website states that their officers are also trained by the FBI, U.S. Secret Service, and the National Guard. A St. Anthony P.D. bulletin from 2007 notes "the team is trained to operate and be successful in pre-empting a terrorist attack. To this end, officers have undergone extensive training and have been equipped with specialized gear. The equipment and training received has been funded by homeland security and domestic preparedness grants." The current sheriff of the County went to Washington, D.C. last year to ask for more funding for local law enforcement agencies. [See what it gets us? 7 bullets in the chest for nothing!!]

Countering Justice Dept., Homeland Panel Pushes Use of Private, For-Profit Prisons for Immigrant Detainees

A government advisory panel recommended Thursday that the Homeland Security Department continue using private, for-profit jails to house immigrants facing deportation.

The panel, part of the Homeland Security Advisory Council, wrote in its first of 14 recommendations that ICE "will continue" to use private jails. The group also recommended that Immigration and Customs Enforcement improve oversight of private jails and try to limit the time detainees are held in county jails to no more than 72 hours.

Several members of the panel objected to the report's overall findings and voted to approve it only after a lengthy discussion about their concerns. One member of the group that wrote the report objected in writing to the conclusion that the government "should, or inevitably must" continue to rely on private jails.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Hey, the heads of the private prison industry got precisely what they wanted for their money here.

New Rogue Anti-Russia Committee Created in "Intelligence" Act

Section 501 of the Counter Intelligence Act creates a "Committee to Counter Active Measures by the Russian Federation to Exert Covert Influence Over Peoples and Governments."

This is followed by Section 502 which limits Russian and only Russian diplomats in the United States to traveling no more than 25 miles from their offices.

I suspect there may have been a Section 503 in an earlier draft that required CNN to show a photo of Vladimir Putin without his shirt and make fun of him at least once every 4 hours. If so, that section would have been stripped out as unnecessary.

ALL MODERN COLOR PRINTERS PRINT A SECRET, NEARLY INVISIBLE CODE ONTO EVERY PAGE TO ALLOW GOVERNMENTS TO TRACK THE SERIAL NUMBER AND TIMESTAMPS

Printer steganography is a type of steganography – "hiding data within data"[1] where tiny yellow dots are added to each page. The dots are barely visible and contain encoded printer serial numbers and timestamps. Unlike many forms of steganography, the hidden information is not intended to be available from a computer file, but to allow serial number and time of printing to be determined by close examination of a printout.

The Electronic Frontier Foundation stated in 2015 that "the documents that we previously received through a (Freedom of Information Request)[2] suggested that all major manufacturers of color laser printers entered a secret agreement with governments to ensure that the output of those printers is forensically traceable....it is probably safest to assume that all modern color laser printers do include some form of tracking information that associates documents with the printer's serial number."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

How "comforting".

This is amazingly "old Soviet Union" kind of stuff, where they registered all typewriters sold, so that if there was any "anti-Soviet propaganda" being typed, the government would know precisely who had typed it, and where they were, in order to arrest them.

THE PROPAGANDA ABOUT RUSSIAN PROPAGANDA

The most striking issue is the overly broad criteria used to identify which outlets spread propaganda. According to PropOrNot’s recounting of its methodology, the third step it uses is to check if a site has a history of “generally echoing the Russian propaganda ‘line’,” which includes praise for Putin, Trump, Bashar al-Assad, Syria, Iran, China, and “radical political parties in the US and Europe.” When not praising, Russian propaganda includes criticism of the United States, Barack Obama, Clinton, the European Union, Angela Merkel, nato, Ukraine, “Jewish people,” U.S. allies, the mainstream media, Democrats, and “the center-right or center-left, and moderates of all stripes.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, telling the truth, and documenting your findings, if they do not converge with the "official narrative", is now "fake news and Russian propaganda"?!?!?

I would very politely like to remind "ProporNot" that the crooked politicians and mainstream media lied to us when they told us that "Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction"; that Afghanistan was behind 9/11; and that Syria's al-Assad "gassed his own people", just when the UN chemical weapons inspectors set foot in Damascus.

I would be willing to guess that none of the people involved in this utterly stupid censorship ploy, had any of their kids die, or get maimed for life, in the wars which resulted from these lies.

And so now, they have the temerity to tell the rest of us, that lies like these, which become the "justifications" for wars, must accepted as "the truth", and acted upon accordingly, because they are being fed to us, like a slow poison, by our politicians and presstitutes?!?

Somewhere on this planet, George Orwell is turning over in his grave, at warp speed, over this codswallop!! This is flipping desperation on the cusp of madness, and something to which no thinking American should pay the slightest bit of attention!!

McCarthyism Is Breaking Out All Over — Paul Craig Roberts

No one knows who is behind the newly created PropOrNot website that came up with the list of 200 “Russian agents,” but it is as likely as not the State Department funded National Endowment for Democracy, which has been peddling propaganda as fake news since its inception. Indeed, it was created for the purpose of destabilizing the Soviet Union. Of course the CIA could be involved, or Israel, or George Soros, or some neoconservative group, or some new government funded organization as a tool of the propaganda war that the Obama regime has vowed to fight.

By publicizing the fake list in the Washington Post, the presstitute newspaper has brought buckets of shame and condemnation upon its head, destroying in the process the thin shred of credibility that the Main Stream media still possessed.

As Pam Martens reports, another imbecile has now composed a list of 200 suspect professors who also dissent from the official bullshit fed to the American people.

Castle was shot 7 times and killed on July 6, 2016 in front of his girlfriend and her 4-year-old daughter. It's important to watch exactly what Prosecutor Choi outlined in his 28-minute press conference. This is well worth watching and should serve as a template for prosecutors across America.

Mark Zuckerberg Loses $3.7 Billion Following Trump Election

Since November 8th, the date of the election, Zuckerberg’s worth has declined by as much as $3.7 billion, this figure is based on Facebook’s 7% decline in share price from November 8th until Friday the 2nd of December. This £3.7 billion loss hasn’t affected Zuckerberg’s financial standing massively, he is still currently ranked as the fifth richest person in the world according to Forbes real time rankings and still possesses approximately $49 billion.

Zukerberg has recently come under fire for promoting a narrative that claimed that “fake news” affected the presidential election. Both Google and Facebook took steps on November 14th to ban “fake news” content publishers from generating a cut of advertising revenues through Google AdSense and Facebook Audience Network, a move that “disproportionately impacted right-wing news sites.” Whether or not Zuckerburg’s financial loss is tied to this is unknown.

The State Department’s definition includes “demonizing” and “delegitimizing” Israel as examples of contemporary anti-Semitism.

House Passes Massive $611 Billion New Military Spending Bill

In an overwhelming 375-34 vote, the House of Representatives today passed a massive $611 new military spending bill. Though presented as the National Defense Authorization Act for 2017, the bill is only a portion of what the US will ultimately spend on the military in fiscal 2017.

The bill includes bans on any closure of any military bases by the Pentagon, once again rejecting calls by the military leadership to get rid of costly, unwanted bases, and also forbids the closure of the detention center at Guantanamo Bay. It also forbids the Pentagon from going through with a plan to reduce the number of active duty soldiers,

U.S. Attorney General Tries To Defuse Tensions Over Dakota Access Pipeline

U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch on Friday announced attempts by federal officials to help mend fraying relationships in North Dakota between local law enforcement and Dakota Access Pipeline protesters.

With winter weather arriving across the Great Plains and after a spate of violent altercations, Lynch expressed hope that Department of Justice officials could mediate between hundreds of Native Americans that oppose the pipeline and the local officials who’ve asked them to end their demonstrations.

“Let me stress that violence is never the answer and that all of us have a responsibility to find common ground around a peaceful resolution where all voices are heard,” said Lynch in a videotaped statement. “Our first concern is the safety of everyone in the area – law enforcement officers, residents and protesters alike.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is sound and fury, signifying nothing but attempted window-dressing on Lynch's "legacy" as Attorney General.

She can send as many "Federal Mediators" as she desires; it will not take away the stench of her not prosecuting Hillary Clinton for her crimes as Secretary of State, or the dubious existence, and functionings, of the Clinton Foundation.

At the end of the day, this is all about money to be gained, or lost, by the pipeline's owners and investors. So far, they will not budge, and have already destroyed sacred burial sites of the Standing Souix in the area, in preparation for the pipeline's construction.

The pipeline's very construction may well damage the water resources of the Souix people living in this area; and once that happens, there is no "fix" for soil and water remediation that is not horrifically expensive.

So Lynch knows, before these "mediators" go in that there is no real solution that will satisfy both sides. So what is the reason for her having made this announcement?!?

This is pure political theatre in her attempt attempt to resurrect her image after not having prosecuted Clinton for her crimes, period, end of discussion.

WHILE YOU WERE DISTRACTED BY THE US ELECTION, THE SENATE OUTLAWED GMO LABELING NATIONWIDE

While attention was diverted to the US election for much of this year, the Senate quietly made null and void state laws that require that GMO foods be labeled.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If you didn't understand that this government is a government of the corporations, by the corporations, and for the corporations....wakey wakey!!!!!

Now, you understand what industries are some of the major owners of Congress, and that Congress rarely considers the lousy implications of legislation they pass for their alleged constituents.

Congress authorizes Trump to arm Syrian rebels with anti-aircraft missiles

The House voted for the first time today to explicitly authorize the incoming Donald Trump administration to arm vetted Syrian rebels with anti-aircraft missiles.

While the language in the annual defense bill also creates restrictions on the provision of the controversial weapons, it represents a win for Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman John McCain, R-Ariz., a fervent advocate of helping the rebels resist President Bashar al-Assad and his Russian and Iranian allies. The Senate is expected to pass the bill next week.

Until now, the transfer of man-portable air-defense systems, or MANPADs, had been implicitly authorized in the absence of an outright ban. Critics, however, view the new provision as tantamount to a policy recommendation for the president-elect.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If Trump is as smart as I think he is, he will veto this deal, and work with Russia to end this war, as quickly as possible.

I would like to politely point out to Senator McCain that continuing to do the same this, over and over (as in, sending weapons to allegedly "vetted, moderate" Rebels"), yet expecting a different outcome (their getting their collective backsides whipped by the Russians an Syrians) is a classic definition of insanity.

MAJOR FOREIGN POLICY SHIFT: TURKEY ABANDONING EU FOR SCO

Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan said on November 20 that Turkey did not need to join the European Union «at all costs». Instead, it could become part of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO), or Shanghai Pact. The Turkish leader said he had already discussed the idea with Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Kazakh counterpart Nursultan Nazarbayev.

The SCO is a Eurasian political, economic, and military organization founded in 2001 in Shanghai. Its members are Russia, China, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, and Uzbekistan. Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan speak Turkic languages.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Economically and geopolitically, for a lot of reasons, it makes far more sense for Turkey to joint the SCO than the EU; Erdogan has called this correctly.

Online Activist Will Spend 10 Years In Jail For "Spreading False News"

A Kuwaiti online activist will spend 10 years in jail, an appeals court has ruled, for posting messages on Twitter that “insulted the emir” and “spreading false news” that endangered the country. The court on Thursday confirmed the jail term against Waleed Fares handed down by a lower court in May, AFP reported. Fares was arrested in September 2015 for comments under the name “Gibrit Seyassi” about Kuwait’s emir and ruler, Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmad Al Sabah, “offending the judiciary” and “accusing the attorney general and public prosecution of being biased”.

One has to wonder if State Department spokesperson Kirby knows that in 2011 Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, speaking about RT, declared: “The Russians have opened an English-language network. I’ve seen it in a few countries, and it is quite instructive.”

I also wonder how Mr. Kirby deals with reporters from the BBC, a STATE-OWNED television and radio entity in the U.K., broadcasting in the U.S. and all around the world.

Or the state-owned Australian Broadcasting Corporation, described by Wikipedia as follows: “The corporation provides television, radio, online and mobile services throughout metropolitan and regional Australia, as well as overseas… and is well regarded for quality and reliability as well as for offering educational and cultural programming that the commercial sector would be unlikely to supply on its own.”

“Fake News” Has Been a Problem for Thousands of Years … Here’s How It’s Been Stopped

Throughout history, government officials have tried to stop “fake news” through various means before it was published.

The crime of the peddlers of fake news: failing to acknowledge that those in power were perfect saints.

Socrates

For example, Socrates was killed in 399 BC for spreading “fake news”.

His crime: “Failing to acknowledge the gods that the [mainstream media of the day] acknowledges”.

Tyndale

William Tyndale was killed in 1536 for spreading “fake news”.

His crime: Translating the Bible into English so that everyone could read it for themselves, and no longer had to rely on the clergy to tell them what it said.

Galileo

In 1616 and 1633, Galileo was tried for spreading “fake news”.

His crime: spreading fake news that the Earth rotates around the Sun.

Multiple Jobholders Hit New All Time High As Part-Time Jobs Soar

But perhaps even more troubling than the breakdown in November job quality, was another seldom-touted series: the number of Multiple jobholders, or people who are forced to hold more than one job due to insufficient wages or for other reasons. It was here that the red flashing light came on because while on a seasonally adjusted basis, the series rose once again by 61,000 to 7.8 million; when looked on an actual, unadjusted basis, the number of multiple jobholders increased again, rising by 57, and hitting 8,107 million, the highest number this century.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These numbers, coupled with the reality that 95 million American workers are no longer participating in the labor market, does not augur well for the American economy.

Erdogan Demands Turks Exchange Their Dollars To Gold, Lira

Early this morning, in yet another session of panicked selling, the Turkish Lira crashed to new record lows to just shy of USDTRY 3.60, momentarily going bidless as the currency plunged nearly 400 pips in seconds, after Turkish President Recep Erdogan said the path for investors will be opened with lower interest rates, and urged the central bank to imitate Japan and U.S. where rates are low: “why should we go around with 14-15 percent?”

The answer is simple: the currency tends to drop when an economy is seen as weak, the political regime unstable, or - yes - a central bank cuts rates, which Turkey, as shown in the chart below, can not afford if it hopes to maintain a stable economy with the lira already at all time lows.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The question is, how can Erdogan actually FORCE the Turkish people to do this, save for some Executive Decree, under the still existing "Emergency Powers" he possesses, and if he does that, how will he get the Turkish people to comply?!?

House to House raids by the Turkish military?!?

Oh, THAT's just going to be SOOOOO appealing to the Turkish people!!

Iran Threatens to Walk Away From Nuke Deal, Retaliate Against U.S. for New Sanctions

Iran is threatening to walk away from the nuclear deal with the United States and pursue forms of retaliation, including a national boycott of American goods, as a result of Congress’s overwhelming vote on Thursday to level new sanctions against Iran for another 10 years, according to multiple comments by senior Iranian officials.

Following the Senate’s 99-0 vote to renew economic sanctions on Tehran, senior Iranian officials said the United States is in violation of last summer’s nuclear deal and that Iran is prepared to retaliate, which could include abandoning the agreement.

The comments come as the Obama administration scrambles to preserve the deal in its final months in office, ahead of the inauguration of President-elect Donald Trump, who has been assembling a cabinet filled with fierce opponents of the accord.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This appears to have been a very carefully crafted tactic by the US Senate to anger the Iranians to the point where they walk away from the P5+1 nuclear deal, and restart their nuclear weapons program as the "justification" for the US declaring war against Iran (which will almost certainly mean war with Russia.)

If I could ever craft an amendment to the Constitution it would be this; when all Congressional candidates declare their candidacy, that is the moment that one of their kids must enlist in the Armed Forces, in units most likely to see front-line action.

I am almost willing to bet that this will dampen Congressional ardor and lust for war, because, this time, with their kids tasked to participate in combat, ...it's personal. It's not just "other people's kids", getting killed and maimed for life, ultimately, for corporate profit; but will potentially be their own.

Kissinger and Brzezinski to Be Honoured by Nobel Institute and Oslo University

These two top officials behind major US wars (Iran/Afghanistan and Vietnam/Cambodia/Laos) and regime change (against Allende, Chile) will speak at the first of a new event, The Nobel Peace Prize Forum Oslo, created by the Nobel Institute in Oslo.

The leaders of the two institutions declare that they are proud to have succeeded in getting these two diplomats to Norway – and the media of course will be there. The event is sponsored by the California-based company InCircl – a marketing and mobile payment company.

This is the country that, since 1980, has intervened violently in Iran, Libya, Lebanon, Kuwait, Iraq, Somalia, Bosnia, Afghanistan, Sudan, Kosova/Serbia, Yemen, Pakistan, Syria, i.e. 14 Muslim countries. It has some 630 base facilities in 130+ countries. It has its US Special Forces (SOF) in 133 countries.

It has used nuclear weapons without apology and owns the second largest arsenal of nuclear weapons.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

By inviting warmongers and war criminals like Kissinger and Brzezinski to such an event demonstrates that the Nobel Peace Prize is an absolute, utter fraud!!

It would really be a joke, had not so many people, in so many countries, died because of the wars generated by these men.

UN apologizes for Haiti cholera spread, not for causing it

Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon apologized Thursday for the U.N. not doing enough to contain the spread of a cholera outbreak in Haiti, but he stopped short of apologizing for bringing the disease to the Caribbean nation.

Ban made his remarks in a speech announcing the U.N.'s new approach to cholera in Haiti, which seeks to provide aid to communities affected by the disease that has afflicted some 800,000 Haitians and killed over 9,000.

"On behalf of the United Nations, I want to say very clearly we apologize to the Haitian people. We simply did not do enough with regard to the cholera outbreak and its spread in Haiti. We are profoundly sorry for our role," Ban said, speaking first in Creole, then repeating himself in French and English.

"This has cast a shadow upon the relationship between the United Nations and the people of Haiti. It is a blemish on the reputation of U.N. peacekeeping and the organization world-wide," Ban added.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Absoflippinglutely unbelievable; So the UN's military can spread disease with impunity, with the UN never being liable for prosecution?!?

What the UN allowed to happen here was a crime against humanity, which they allowed to be inflicted on the Haitian people!!

I cannot possibly articulate just how screwed up this is, in so many, horrific ways!

Centcom Commander: US Must Keep Troops in Afghanistan to ‘Send a Strong Message’

Speaking at the Foreign Policy Initiative’s forum today, Gen. Joseph Votel, the head of Central Command, praised President Obama for not following through on planned drawdowns of ground troops in occupied Afghanistan, saying he wants to keep troop levels at least this high for the foreseeable future.

Gen. Votel argued that keeping 8,400 troops in Afghanistan more or less permanently was “a very wise move,” and that it would “send a strong message” to the people of Afghanistan that the US believes “the military strategy is working.” The US invaded and occupied Afghanistan in 2001.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Forgive me, but has US General Votel gone absolutely barking mad, and lost his reality licence, to have made such a statement...in public?!?

Were I able to invite this man over for tea (and I sincerely doubt he would accept the invitation), I would have to ask him, point-blank: what are the metrics to which you can honestly point which indicate, 15 years on, and with the Taliban taking more and more territory here on a daily basis, that the US military strategy is actually "working"?!?

What do you actually mean by that?!?

So I must be brutally honest here; the only element right now for whom this occupation is "working" is the burgeoning Afghani opium trade.

As reported at thefiscalnews.com last month:

Losing the War on Heroin: Poppy Production Soars in Afghanistan

Oh, and it gets worse: not only is the opium trade growing like crazy; US troops are also being tasked with guarding the opium poppy farms.

images: US soldiers guarding opium fields in Afghanistan

So please, General Votel, cut the crud, already; we know why you are keen on keeping US and Coalition soldiers in Afghanistan for as long as possible, and it is not for taking territory away from the Taliban, or insuring the freedom of the Afghani people.

It is to guarantee the continuation, and expansion, of opium production here, to fund various "off the shelf" activities of various US alphabet soup agencies, and insure that Congressional oversight is completely non-existent.

Obama Supports Making Women Register for Military Draft

Continuing the debate over a massive expansion of the Selective Service, the White House today announced that President Obama is in favor of expanding registration for the military draft to include all women when they turn 18.

The announcement comes ahead of a planned House vote on a bill to study the expansion of the military draft, or to potentially eliminate the Selective Service outright. The White House has repeatedly insisted they have no plans to bring the draft back, but want to force everyone to register anyhow to “foster a sense of public service.”

The administration opened all combat roles to women, and officials say they believe expanding the registration system is a “logical next step,” ensuring “gender equality” in forcing the public to register for potential conscription in future wars.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"...to foster a sense of public service...", MY ASTROLABE!!

This is about the DOD and Pentagon wanting to bulk up their resources by conscripting women, as well as men, for the wars they are scheming to hatch within the next 50 years.

Pentagon Again Under-Reports Civilians Killed in Iraq, Syria Airstrikes

The latest in the occasional Pentagon statements on civilian deaths in the air war in Iraq and Syria has claimed 54 civilians slain between March 31 and October 22, continuing the trend of official figures being massively lower than those reported in the media.

This puts the official death toll at 173 civilians for the entire air war, which is far short of estimates from most groups, which put the death toll far higher over the course of the conflict. Amnesty International put the figure at around 300, and others have suggested it was in excess of 500. The Pentagon often declines to investigate reports of civilian deaths, arguing that they are “not credible.”

Even when they do finally manage to get the killings into their reports, the tolls are often dramatically lower than the evidence suggests. A July 18 airstrike north of the Syrian city of Manbij, for instance, was finally included in the report this time around, with “up to 24” killed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

More "fake news" sold to you, courtesy of the US government and their presstitutes.

UN: Iraq Troop Deaths Soar With Mosul Invasion

Between Iraq’s military, militias, and the Kurdish Peshmerga, some 50,000 troops invaded the area around Mosul. The Peshmerga is reporting that they lost a large chunk of fighters by themselves, with 1,600 killed and some 10,000 wounded since late October.

That of course is only a fraction of the overall death toll for the month of November, as some 2,227 ISIS fighters were also killed. Among civilians, the UN only counted 926 killed, but the figure is actually several hundred higher, with the UN continuing to exclude deaths in Anbar from their official figure.

All told, that puts the death toll at 5,719 for Iraq in November, which is roughly in line with October. the November figures show a six-fold increase in Iraqi troop deaths, with ISIS casualties on the decline.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These horrific numbers are the "legacy" of President Bush's war and occupation of Iraq.

I have to believe that there is a special place in hell for people who lie to get their countries involved in pre-emptive wars of conquest.

Obama administration stiff-arms lawmakers questioning secret refugee deal

Nearly 2,500 refugees from terrorism hotspots around the world are bound for the U.S. after being rejected by Australia, but not even top lawmakers can get answers about who they are.

In an unprecedented move, the U.S. State Department has classified details on refugees to be resettled in America via a secret deal made with Australia. The bi-lateral agreement, which Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull called a “one-off,” involves 2,465 people currently being held in Papua New Guinea and Nauru who will now be transferred onto U.S. soil.

“This is a backroom deal, wheeling and dealing with another country's refugee problem,” Center for Immigration Studies fellow Don Barnett told FoxNews.com. “I don’t believe for a moment it’s a one-time deal. That’s for public consumption.”

The move has also raised a red flag among Congressional oversight members.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have posted many times about the horrific conditions on Nauru, and why this was such a "black eye" against the core Australian values of freedom and compassion, and asked for at least some degree of sympathy for these people, particularly for the children, who had no choice but to leave with their parents.

I advocated for the Australian government to consider partnering with various international adoption agencies, to get kids adopted into loving homes which could give them hope, and a future.

But the fact that Obama did this with his normal, graceless hubris, essentially bypassing Congress, does give me pause for concern.

And how great will the vetting be on these people, considering that the Somali immigrant refugee, Abdul Razak Ali Artan, who stabbed a bunch of kids recently at Ohio State University, was also vetted by this same US government, which concluded that he was utterly "no risk" to the American public?!?

White man who gunned down black ex-NFL player in road rage case released without charges

A man who shot and killed a former NFL player during an apparent road rage incident has been released without charges.

Joe McKnight, a former New Orleans high school star, was shot dead about 3 p.m. Thursday during an argument at an intersection in Terrytown, reported The Times-Picayune.

A witness said she saw a man, later identified as 54-year-old Ronald Gasser, yelling at the 28-year-old McKnight, who was attempting to apologize.

Witnesses said Gasser, who is white, pulled McKnight, who is black, from his Audi, argued with him and then shot him more than once as he stood over him.

“I told you not to f*ck with me,” Gasser said, before firing once more at McKnight as he lay on the ground.

McKnight, who last played in the NFL in 2014, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Gasser was taken to the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office for questioning but was released overnight without charges, reported The Advocate.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Pardon my Serbo-Croatian here, but what the hell is wrong with the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office, that this man, who was witnessed committing a cold-blooded murder, was not charged?!?

Were they given "instructions from on high" NOT to charge him, to aggravate an already racially divisive country into riots, leading to the suspension of the Constitution and Bill of Rights, and the imposition of martial law, to "postpone" the inauguration of President-elect Trump?!?

This makes me absolutely furious, and I have to wonder just what the rationale was for not charging this guy.

Who is this Ronald Gasser?!? And why did he appear to receive a "get out of jail free" card?!?

BILL TARGETING “RUSSIAN PROPAGANDA” PASSES IN HOUSE

H.R.6393, Intelligence Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2017, passed in the House of Representatives on November 30.

The legislation deals with a number of intelligence related issues, including Russian propaganda, or what the government calls propaganda.

Section 501 calls for the government to counter “measures by Russia to exert covert influence… carried out in coordination with, or at the behest of, political leaders or the security services of the Russian Federation and the role of the Russian Federation has been hidden or not acknowledged publicly.”

Definitions include media manipulation, covert broadcasting, disinformation and forgeries, and “funding agents of influence.”

It’s easy to see how this law, if passed by the Senate and signed by the president, could be used against “fake news” websites.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would like to politely remind our readers and listeners that WRH made the list of alleged "Russian Propaganda Outlets." If such an accusation wasn't desperation on the cusp of madness, I would be laughing my head off at the insanity of this characterisation of Mike's site, as well as others which were tarred with this allegation.

I would also like to politely remind our readers and listeners that the US government and corporate presstitutes lied about Afghanistan and Iraq, in order to justify wars against them.

To date, these wars are on-going, with absolutely zero metric one can point to as a military "win" for either conflict.

I would like to politely point out that the US government and corporate presstitutes lied about the situation in Libya, to justify regime change in that country, which has left Libya a failed state.

The independent media works very hard to get its stories right, because it understands, collectively, the degree to which various elements in government, and corporate media want it to fail, and the degree to which they will "poison the well" with false information it hopes the independent media will jump on, in order to kookify the entire movement.

But when the government and corporate media collude in their dissemination of truly "fake news", it is usually about selling an agenda (usually involving war, occupation, and conquest) when the real reason for that war is to expropriate resources from other countries, to which the US government has absolutely no moral right, making sure it is controlled by US-led, or US approved multinational companies, and sold in US dollars.

Please be assured that we will continue to share what we believe to be critically important information to our readers and listeners, because we absolutely support
the people's right to know what the heck their government is doing, even when the US government is utterly terrified (as it is right now) of the people really understanding what they are doing.

And as we also learn from blacklistednews.com today:
Congress is ready to join the crusade against so-called “fake news,” forwarding a measure through the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) to combat purported foreign propaganda and disinformation. The news comes after mainstream media have been busy promoting bogus blacklists, lashing out at those who dare question the narrative. The fact that this $160 million, two-year authorization is being advanced through the annual military budget makes it all the more disconcerting. Under the guise of the war on terror, the NDAA has been used to increase Executive authority, and the 2012 version went so far as to authorize the indefinite military detention of U.S. civilians without habeus corpus.

That a collection of small, independent media sites could so terrify this government that the money to "combat" us comes from the DOD, is more than a little unnerving, but it will not stop us.

SINISTER plans to criminalise “political dissent” against the EU project took a step closer to becoming reality today, prompting a dismayed response from free speech campaigners.

DAPL: GOV’T USING NO-FLY ZONE TO SUPPRESS JOURNALISM

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers recently announced it will be closing federal land north of the Cannonball River on December 5th, and now reports are surfacing that the government plans to use a no-fly zone to prevent journalists from recording the events that transpire. This is following the attacks on Native land protectors and protesters that was caught on video by drone pilots, in which police were seen using percussion grenades:

The no-fly zone, which has been set up by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), applies only to citizens, as law enforcement craft continues to fly overhead. According to experts, the no-fly zone is in direct violation of the First Amendment since the drones belonging to land protectors are being used to conduct journalism.

In a statement from Roy Gutterman, director of the University of Syracuse’s Tully Center for Free Speech:

Twitter Threatens Trump Ban After Claims of “Hate Speech Violations”

Twitter is monitoring Donald Trump and threatens to ban him for violating “harassment or hateful conduct” policies following allegations from the left.

The liberal wing of the corporate media is putting pressure on Twitter and Facebook to answer demands from liberal activists calling on Donald Trump to be banned from their social networks for what they claim to be violations of the hate-speech policies against harassment and hateful conduct.

Facebook has responded by saying that comments from the President-elect should be considered mainstream political discourse.

Twitter, following a purge accounts of outspoken conservative activists, has taken a more aggressive line stating not only are they considering banning Donald Trump but the they are watching his account and will ban him as soon as they feel Trump has crossed the line in violating their policies.

The team, established under the George W. Bush administration, was a resurrection of the Cold War-era US Information Agency’s (USIA) Bureau of Information, which was designed to counter «Soviet» disinformation. The truth of the matter was that many of the news reports from TASS, Radio Moscow, and Novosti, branded as «Soviet disinformation» by USIA, were, in fact, truthful reports on CIA covert operations, including political assassinations, biological warfare, and weapons and narcotics smuggling. Today, the media mouthpieces for the CIA and Soros replace Soviet-era media outlets as their main targets for derision with RT television and Sputnik News.

WRH made that list, and that made Mike and me very proud!!

What is that old war-time line, "If you're catching flack, you're over the target", and this site has been catching flack for over 20 years now!! :-)

In Yemen’s war, trapped families ask: Which child should we save?

The family of Osama Hassan faced a wrenching choice as his tiny body wasted away. Should they use the little money they had, in a time of war, to take the 2-year-old to a hospital? Or should they buy food to feed their other children?

His family chose food.

Outside their hut, Ahmed Sadek grimly observed his frail grandson, who was lying on a wooden cot and staring blankly at the gray sky. His hair was sparse, his teeth decayed, his arms sticklike. He could no longer walk on his spindly legs.

With every raspy breath, Osama’s ribs protruded through his dry skin.

“There’s nothing we can do for him,” Sadek said. “I know he’s going to die.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Take a good, hard look at that dying kid, held by his grandfather.

And isn't it comforting to know that the US government has been complicit in this kid's death, by militarily enabling the Saudi military, which has blockaded Yemen's ports, and prevents food from getting to desperately poor families like this, in their war against Yemen?!?

In President Obama's world, the death of children through starvation is perfectly acceptable, if the Saudis are ultimately able to grind the Houthi rebels into a pulp, and restore the presidency of Al-Hadi.

They're just "collateral damage"; not human beings, entitled to care, food, the tenderness of a loving family, and the opportunity to grow up to fulfill their destinies.

THIS ... is what President Obama's enabling of the Saudi military has created in Yemen; I am absolutely certain that, as a father himself, he will be absolutely delighted with this images:

Images of starving Yemeni child reduced to bone surfaces on social media

These images are not photoshopped: they are real testaments to the horrific nature of the US-enabled/Saudi fought war on Yemen.

I would like to politely remind both President and the House of Saud that collective punishment is a war crime; and one of the most barbaric collective punishments which can possibly be inflicted upon a people is the death of their infants, through certain and slow starvation because food is just not available.

In both the Bush and Obama administrations, there should have been a plaque behind their desks, boldly proclaiming: The United States of America; a proud partner in war crimes!!"

I am hoping - and praying - that President Elect Trump will be working in both a moral, and trade-friendly way to avoid this happening to our country, under his watch.

Haaretz Journalist Questioned by Police Over Phone Calls to Lawmaker

Police apparently searched the telephone of Haaretz writer Nir Gontarz and questioned him for more than two hours on suspicion he had harassed lawmaker Yael German (Yesh Atid) with repeated phone calls. The police apparently hacked the reporter's phone to check his conversations.
“The questioning was supervised by Maj. Gen. Meni Yitzhak, the head of the investigations and intelligence branch, as regulations require,” police spokesman Merav Lapidot said. According to the attorney-general’s guidelines for summoning and searching a journalist, the head of the investigations branch must approve the summons.

“I was sure this was some kind of serial stalker; it was a blocked number,” said German, who was surprised to hear that a journalist was questioned in the matter. “I don’t answer blocked numbers; if someone wants to reach me let them send a text message. I filed a complaint with the Knesset sergeant-at-arms two weeks ago. It’s been a while since I’ve even wondered who it was.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If the Israeli government is doing this to a journalist of record for Ha'aretz, you can bet your sweet bippy that they are doing this to every other journalist in print, online, and broadcasting, in Israel.

Sir Tim Berners-Lee slams the Snoopers' Charter as a 'security nightmare'

WORLD WIDE WEB FOUNDER Sir Tim Berners-Lee has spoken out about the "undemocratic" Investigatory Powers Bill (IP Bill), which this week received royal assent and will soon become law.

The IP Bill, better known as the Snoopers' Charter, was waved through by the Queen on Tuesday, which means that the government's sweeping surveillance rules will now pass into law in 2017.

The Bill, described by Edward Snowden as "the most extreme surveillance in the history of western democracy", will require ISPs to store comprehensive records of websites visited and phone numbers called for 12 months, and to enable police, security services and multiple other public sector bodies, including the Department for Work and Pensions and the Food Standards Agency, to access those records on demand.

Sens. Graham, McCain Unveil Plan to Weaken Saudi 9/11 Bill

While the Saudis lobbied heavily against the bill, and threatened to collapse the US economy over it, it passed easily earlier this year, though even back then Republican leadership was openly talking about gutting the bill after the November election. The election’s gone, and if the “fix” has its way, so are the lawsuits

That’s because the “fix” requires plaintiffs to prove the Saudis “knew” and were “directly” financing the terrorist organization itself. Since the 9/11 Report’s 28 pages show the funding was all done through a convoluted route, it would effectively end any chance of legal repercussions for the Saudis.

Which of course is the point, though Graham insists that what he’s really concerned about is that the existing bill which allows lawsuits over stuff the Saudis actually did, might also open the US up to lawsuits over the many, many things they’ve done.

Trump Ponders Petraeus for Senior Job

The news that President-elect Donald Trump called in disgraced retired Gen. David Petraeus for a job interview as possible Secretary of State tests whether Trump’s experience in hosting “The Celebrity Apprentice” honed his skills for spotting an incompetent phony or not.

Does Trump need more data than the continuing bedlam in Iraq and Afghanistan to understand that one can earn a Princeton PhD by writing erudite-sounding drivel about “counterinsurgency” and still flunk war?

In 2007, Adm. William Fallon, commander of CENTCOM with four decades of active-duty experience behind him, quickly took the measure of Petraeus, who was one of his subordinates while implementing a “surge” of over 30,000 U.S. troops into Iraq.

Is Steve Mnuchin Just Another Wall Street Banker?

After weeks of speculation, Donald Trump has announced Steve Mnuchin as his nominee for Treasury Secretary.

Though Mnuchin himself has said little, his resume does seem to contrast sharply with Trump’s populist campaign. Mnuchin, like his father before him, was a partner at Goldman Sachs before joining the world of hedge funds, including working as a portfolio manager for George Soros.

There are some troubling signs that Mnuchin is unlikely to “drain the swamp” connecting Wall Street to the beltway.

For example, during interviews following the official announcement, he was quick to praise Janet Yellen as having done a “good job,” after Trump spent much of his campaign criticizing the sitting Fed Chairman. He also entertained the idea of following the lead of other countries in possibly issuing 50–100 year bonds government bonds

Thousands Of Veterans To Form ‘Human Shield’ For Dakota Protestors

Thousands of veterans are planning to form a human shield around the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation to protect protestors from police brutality.

Up to 2,000 veterans are expected in North Dakota amid violent clashes between protestors and militarised cops over the construction of an oil pipeline.

The nonviolent intervention by the veterans aims to protect the brave protestors from “assault and intimidation at the hands of the militarized police force”.

Nationalpost.com reports:

The veterans’ plan coincides with an announcement Tuesday by law enforcement officials that they may impose fines to block supplies from entering the main protest camp after a mandatory evacuation order from the governor. Officials had warned earlier of a physical blockade, but they later backed away from that, Reuters said. Protesters have vowed to stay put.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

To all protestors in this situation: please be careful out there, and stay non-violent. Make sure that all actions, by you, and by the police, are consistently documented on camera, using several cameras,if at all possible.

There is absolutely no telling to what depths of butchery these militarized police have been ordered to sink, courtesy of their corporate masters.

MODI'S BANK TRANSACTION TAX MAY LEAD TO LARGER CONFLICTS

It now turns out that Modis extremism in not confined to the nationalist bend but includes some crazy economic ideas.

Modi decided to demonetize the country from one day to another. Every bank note valued at over US$7 was taken out of circulation. The rather crazy idea behind this is to move all monetary transactions to some electronic money systems and to then tax each and every transaction. All other kind of taxes would be abolished.

Only a lunatic without any knowledge of actual economic issues can support such a move.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

With India and Pakistan on the brink of war over the issue of Kashmir, one would think this might not be the best time to introduce such a draconian change in the way India's economy works.

Potential war with Pakistan, coupled with massive riots over the change in the economic system at home?!?

It is painfully apparent that a number of people in Modi's cabinet suffer from an almost pathological inability to think multiple, concurrent scenarios all the way through to their logical conclusions.

US JUDGES CAN NOW SIGN GLOBAL HACKING WARRANTS

On Thursday, changes to the rules around US search warrants came into effect, meaning that magistrate judges can now authorize the hacking of computers outside of their own district.

Legal experts have described the move as the broadest expansion of extraterritorial surveillance power since the FBI's inception, an agency that has already embarked on international hacking operations. The Department of Justice, meanwhile, has defended the changes, arguing they are crucial for policing crime in an age of anonymization technology such as Tor.

The move centers around Rule 41 of the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure, which regulates when and under what particular circumstances judges can issues warrants for searches and seizures, including remote searches of suspects’ computers.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The problem is, the really bad guys have already encrypted their systems to the point that whatever wizbang software is available to these judges is so far behind the times, that locating real criminals will be difficult, if not impossible, even though magistrate judges now have the power to do so.

The Real Reasons Why Another American Civil War Is Possible

You have to hand it to the regressive left, when they conjure propaganda they really know how to run with it. When their indoctrination doesn’t take, and the public stops them cold with a wall of skepticism, they don’t give up! No — the little buggers double down and go for broke!

I would point out, however, that this seemingly boundless drive to forsake all logic and reason in the name of ideology is not due to these people being special in their ambition. Rather, they are following a somewhat successful historic model; the model of communism. And by successful, I mean successfully destructive.

German intel agency gets €150mn to crack encryption of WhatsApp, other messaging services – reports

Germany’s Federal Intelligence Service (BND) wants to hack its way around encryption used by instant messaging services such as WhatsApp and Telegram, and has just been given €150 million ($160 million) to do so.

The BND has developed the Reconnaissance of Non-Standardized Communication in Internet project (ANISKI) to tackle encryption.

It aims to crack encryption methods used by popular messaging services as, at present, the BND can only access information sent in “less than 10” of the 70 popular communication services.

FBI to gain expanded hacking powers as Senate effort to block fails

A last-ditch effort in the Senate to block or delay rule changes that would expand the U.S. government's hacking powers failed Wednesday, despite concerns the changes would jeopardize the privacy rights of innocent Americans and risk possible abuse by the incoming administration of President-elect Donald Trump.

The Real Reasons Why Another American Civil War Is Possible


What leftists do not know is that they have always been useful idiots for the global elites, and, they will be thrown in the garbage once the elites are finished with them. I hope that every leftist could watch the following interview with Soviet KGB defector Yuri Bezmenov, in which he examines the process by which free nations are brought to chaos by the elites through the exploitation of the regressive left in order to establish a totalitarian system.

I leave you with this thought — civil war is unavoidable. The left is too crazy, and the right has now been given the weapon of government too enticing to overlook. Consider for a moment which “faction” in the world benefits most from this arrangement and then you will understand that the left is ultimately a distraction from the greater enemy. Remove the globalists from the picture, and the left will sort itself out.

One Year Ago Today, Cops Who Killed Idaho Rancher Jack Yantis Were Outed On WRH!

After two deputies slaughtered 62-year-old Idaho Rancher Jack Yantis on Nov. 1, 2015, the sheriff and corporate media had refused to name Jack's killers because they were allegedly "afraid for the deputie's safety." This wasn't right, so with the help of some locals, I published their identies. Mike Rivero 'front-paged' the story at WhatReallyHappened.com and within hours the expose had gone mega-viral and the TV news and newspapers, who already knew damn well who the killers were but were too GUTLESS to publish it, were forced to follow suit. Zollman held a press conference that evening with his tail between his legs and a 180 degree coincidental change of heart, and he was (forced) to name KILLERS BRIAN WOOD AND CODY ROLAND, since at that point the whole world knew. This was a great day for the independent media and for 'Justice for Jack.'
