NY SLIMES BEX - YouTube Cracks Down on Far-Right Videos as Conspiracy Theories Spread

YouTube this week cracked down on the videos of some prominent far-right actors and conspiracy theorists, continuing an effort that has become more visible since the school shooting in Parkland, Fla., last month caused a torrent of misinformation to be featured prominently on the site.

A week after the shooting, many of the videos on YouTube’s “Trending” list contained misinformation about the teenage survivors of the shooting. The top video on the list for some time falsely claimed that a student at the school, David Hogg, was a paid actor.

That video and others like it led to intense criticism of the site. Since then, many prominent right-wing personalities have reported that YouTube has issued them strikes, which the site uses to enforce its community guidelines. If a channel receives three strikes within three months, YouTube terminates it.

Suit Filed Against Twitter Sets Up Massive Win for Conservatives, Free Speech

Free-speech lawyers have filed a legal challenge against Twitter’s censorship policies.

According to the 29-page complaint, Twitter is not allowed to “discriminate against speech on their platform based purely on viewpoint,” Breitbart reported.

In November 2017, Twitter announced that they would ban and sanction verified users based on their offline behavior and associations.

True FASCISM: Here’s the list of conservative news sites and figures who are being shadow-banned on Facebook, Google

Social media giants Google and Facebook, which together soak up nearly 80 percent of all online ad revenue, have declared war on conservative media and conservative figures.

Recent changes in the companies’ algorithms that allegedly were made to ‘weed out’ fake news instead have been weaponized to weed out independent media and right-leaning voices that don’t comport with the Marxist Left ideology of the sites’ owners.

Some sites and conservatives that have Facebook pages have seen their traffic drop anywhere from 75 percent to 95 percent.

Ordinarily, that’d be just fine — unfair but fine given that as private companies, they can run their businesses as they see fit.

But there’s more to it than that. There’s a legal aspect as well.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Independent Media played no small role in helping Trump defeat Hillary, but it appears he has turned his back on us all!

#StandAgainstCensorship by taking action: 10 powerful things you can do NOW to take back your freedom from the “techno tyrants”

Your ability to speak freely is under extreme assault as YouTube, Facebook, Google and Twitter are now pursuing the most outlandish censorship purge they’ve ever attempted. (They’re going for broke to desperately try to control the narrative on everything…)

At stake is our very democracy, for without the ability to engage in public debate that’s free from interference by the tech giants, we no longer have the knowledge base from which a sustainable democracy can exist at all. Censorship is tyranny, and it is by definition anti-democratic. Censorship by the tech giants is a form of bullying aimed at selected political targets to silence their views and expel them from public discussion or debate.

CONGRESSMEN ASK JUSTICE DEP'T TO WEIGH AL JAZEERA AS FOREIGN AGENT

A bipartisan group of US congressmen has asked the Justice Department to examine whether Al Jazeera, a media organization based in Doha, operates as a foreign agent for Qatar in the United States.

The letter was endorsed mostly by Republicans but signed by a handful of Democratic lawmakers. It notes that the State Department has “indicated” Al Jazeera “is state-controlled,” and that it often features “favorable coverage of US State Department-designated Foreign Terrorist Organizations, including Hamas, Hezbollah, Palestinian Islamic Jihad and Jabhat al-Nusra, al-Qaeda’s branch in Syria.”

Has Trump Abandoned His Base?

My mental health is fine, my perspective on life is good and I enjoy my life. Unfortunately, I am cursed and that curse could make me look like a paranoid conspiracy theorist. My curse is that I know history. I am also in tune with the Mark Twain saying that history may not repeat but it sure does rhyme.

Hear me clearly America, history is rhyming like a two year old learning English syntax. I have said it before and it needs to repeated again and again until every American can see the danger. the establishment of every totalitarian regime follows the same patttern. There are no exceptions to this pattern and there are scores of examples which follows the same 3-step pattern:

Israel owns and operates foreign policy of US: Journalist

Israel owns and operates the foreign policy of the Unites States, according to Wayne Madsen, an investigative journalist in Washington.

Madsen, an author and columnist specializing in intelligence and international affairs, made the remarks in an interview with Press TV on Tuesday while commenting on the speech US Vice President Mike Pence delivered to the annual conference by the pro-Israel AIPAC lobby group on Monday.

In his address to the AIPAC, Pence hailed the bond between their country and Israel as “the best they have ever been.”

Pence celebrated the Trump administration's efforts towards strengthening the United States’ relationship with Israel and commitment to fighting anti-Semitism around the world.

"We stand with Israel because that's what the American people have always done," he said. "We stand with Israel because her cause is our cause, her values are our values, her fight is our fight."

Cash-Strapped DNC, DCCC Pay Hillary Clinton’s ‘Resistance’ Group Nearly $900,000 Combined for List Acquisitions

The cash-strapped Democratic National Committee (DNC) and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) have combined to pay Hillary Clinton's "resistance" group nearly $900,000 for list acquisitions, Federal Election Commission filings show.

The DNC, which is in the midst of facing financial hardships, conjured up $300,000 on Jan. 8 to pay Onward Together, Clinton's group, for "list acquisition," according to the FEC filings. The payment was made to Clinton's organization as state Democratic parties were waiting on $10 million in funding for rebuilding efforts that was initially promised last July.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Looks as though the Democrats could implode, due to lack of funding!!

YouTube,Twitter and Facebook May Soon Use ADL’s ‘Online Hate Index’ to Detect ‘Hate Speech’ on Platforms

The Anti-Defamation League has stated that social media companies YouTube, Twitter and Facebook may use the group’s “Online Hate Index” to detect hate speech on their platforms.

The ADL published a video on their YouTube page recently outlining the use of their new “Online Hate Index.” The video features Brittan Heller, the director of the ADL Center for Technology and Society. Heller explains the goal of the new index is to “help tech platforms better understand the growing amount of hate on social media, and to use that information to address the problem.” The index will reportedly use machine learning, artificial intelligence, and social science to identify trend and patterns in so-called “hate speech.”

In Syria, the Real Siege Is by Terrorists Supported by Western Powers

In more than seven years of war in Syria, we have seen many times how Western governments and news media shamelessly invert reality.

The same was seen this week over the grim fighting around Eastern Ghouta, the suburb near the capital, Damascus, where 400,000 people are said to be trapped.

But who is trapping who?

US and European media breathlessly claim that Eastern Ghouta is under siege from Syrian “regime forces” allied with Russia. This description is posing things upside down.

The district was taken over nearly six years ago by foreign-backed extremists, like Jaysh al Islam, Ahrar al Sham, and Al Nusra Front. The latter is an internationally outlawed terror group, but they all share the same murderous ideology, as well as the same Western covert sponsors in the American CIA, British MI6, French DGSE, and lavish Gulf Arab funding. It is these illegally armed insurgents who are holding the civilian population under siege in a reign of terror.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

More insanity, courtesy of the Western elements which want regime change in Damascus, and their pet presstitutes and whorespondents.

In a mid-term election year, President Trump appears to be betting on being able to lie the American people into war yet one more time in Syria; in the most peaceful, and Constitutional way possible, this cannot, and should not, be allowed to happen. Mr. President, ordering more military action in Syria would be taking this country down a very dark, and dangerous, path.

Our Constitution applies to all who serve in National government, even the President; and the Constitution clearly states that it is only Congress which can declare war, President Trump; not the President.

This will most likely, ultimately, mean war with Russia, and this may well be a catastrophe for the US military; they don't have the troop strength; the money; the weaponry; or the manufacturing to insure a positive outcome to a conventional conflict with Russia in Syria.

And to the DNC, if you collectively happen to have two brain cells to rub together, for the 2020 Presidential election, you should be looking at grooming Tulsi Gabbard, the House Representative from Hawaii.

She is a multiple threat; a very bright minority (Samoan American); a Veteran; and an advocate of peace. She is also not Clinton-tainted, which will be an exceptionally valuable asset for any candidate you choose to run.

I would almost be willing to bet that in 2020, the American people will be willing to support a pro-peace candidate, seeing how all the wars this country has been fighting over nearly two decades, have devastated it, in so many ways.

NATO Chief: Troops Are Staying in Iraq: Iraq PM gave NATO a written request to stay in the country

Addressing the Iraqi parliament’s call last week for a specific timeline for all foreign troops to withdraw from Iraq, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg there were no plans at present to leave Iraq, and that troops would stay “as long as necessary.”

NATO chief Jens Stoltenberg in Iraq
Stoltenberg’s assessment wasn’t couched as defiance, however, nor did he take the US position that the deployment in permanent. Rather, he claimed NATO had gotten a written request from Iraqi PM Hayder Abadi to keep its troops in the country.

Details on this written request are unclear, and indeed its existence wasn’t even made public until now. It is likely that a similar request exists for US troops within Iraq as well, given how reliant on overseas deployments Abadi was during the ISIS fight.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF such a letter exists, how come the Iraqi people and Parliament haven't been informed?!?

And have US officials also received such a letter from Iraqi PM Hayder Abadi?!?

Very curious, this, and very interesting timing, as the Iraqi elections are due to be held 12 May of this year, and Muqtada Al Sadr is putting together a list of candidates to run as Sadrists!!

White House Considers Military Action Against Syria

The White House is said to be considering a new round of military action against the Syrian government sometime soon, with recent media reports of chlorine gas exposure in Eastern Ghouta serving as a pretext for the attacks.

President Trump has requested the Pentagon to provide him various options for such a military attack, nominally to “punish the Assad government” over the unproven allegations of chlorine gas attacks.

That would be the second time in less than a year this has happened, as in April, 2017 the US fired a flurry of 59 Tomahawk missiles at Syria’s Shayrat air base, which at the time they said was over claims of chlorine gas attacks as well.

There was never any concrete proof of the allegations which served as a basis for the April attacks, which means that while there’s no solid evidence for these new allegations, that is unlikely to be an obstacle to a new US attack.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

None of these alleged attacks have been proven to be caused by the Syrian military.

So let's ask a logical question, shall we; why would Bashar Al Assad order the gassing and killing his own people, when his military, with Russian assistance, nearly gotten rid of all the jihadists?!?

The short answer is, he wouldn't.

The Russian government, for several weeks, has made statements to the effect that it is the rebels using deadly gas, then doing videos of the results, so of course, the US is blaming Russia for these attacks happening, particularly the attack Eastern Ghouta last month:

US blames Russia for Syria chemical weapons attacks

But the question has to be asked also; how long is Russia going to put up with more American intervention in Syria before Putin believes he has to retaliate to stop it?!?

Were I a betting woman, I would not bet a against US/Russian confrontation in Syria, and unfortunately, President Trump will be precisely setting the stage for such a confrontation to happen, if he orders military action against Syria.

The timing is anyone's guess, but my sense is, relatively soon; perhaps within the next month.

And to the President and his Minions; the American people have had enough of being lied into war, thank you very much, and will not take kindly to it being tried again to enhance the US military presence in Syria.

Erdogan calls for mobilization of army reserves in Syria

In his recent speeches at Justice and Development Party (AKP) meetings, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan appears to be more chauvinistic than ever with frequent impassioned references to war sagas. With the battles at Afrin, the dose of his nationalistic and martyrdom utterances has increased, so much so that on Feb. 24 at a party meeting in Kahramanmaras he called on Turkish men who have already served in the army to be ready to go to Syria.

Addressing his supporters who were chanting, “Our leader, take us to Afrin,” Erdogan said, “Don’t worry. Once we decide to go we will not leave you behind, but take you with us. Now we are dispatching our trained cadres. Those who received mobilization orders should get ready. But at this moment we don’t need them. The minute we decide we will hit the road.”

Turkish males are subject to conscription when they reach the age of 20, and they are required to mobilize until the age of 41.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IT looks as though the Turkish government is preparing for more than just a little "cross-border" jousting with the jihadists; if Edrogan has called up Turkish reserves, he is planning on something far more ambitious than originally thought.

THE SPIN MACHINE BEHIND SAUDI ARABIA’S ‘HUMANITARIAN AID PLAN’ FOR YEMEN

On 22 January, the Saudi-led coalition in Yemen unveiled a new plan to deliver "unprecedented relief to the people of Yemen".

The Yemen Comprehensive Humanitarian Operations (YCHO) is a new "aid" programme with the ostensible aim of "addressing immediate aid shortfalls while simultaneously building capacity for long-term improvement of humanitarian aid and commercial goods imports to Yemen".

This will primarily be done through increasing the "capacities of Yemeni ports to receive humanitarian as well as commercial imports" - and all sealed with a whopping $1.5bn in aid contributions. What could possibly be wrong with that?

STARVATION POLITICS
The problem here is not only that the funding required to meet the needs created by the Saudi-led coalition is estimated by the UN to be twice that amount. The real problem is that the plan will not, in fact, increase the imports on which Yemen is utterly dependent, but reduce them still further.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One would expect nothing less from Prince Mohammed bin Salman, AKA MBS, or, in the world of civilized human beings, the Butcher of Yemen, whose 3 year military campaign and ongoing war crimes in Yemen, have included the murder of infants, women, and the medically fragile elderly in civilian areas.

Children who don't get blown into smithereeens by his genocidal assassins wind up dying from malnutrition, and cholera (possibly weaponised) and diptheria rage in Yemen right now, due to the health problems brought on by malnutrition.

Oh, and BTW, the US government is ASSISTING his troops by providing mid-air refueling to his country's bombers, and targeting information.

I don't know about you; but being a citizen of a country participating with Saudi Arabian troops in war crimes in Yemen concerns me greatly about the trajectory of US foreign policy in the region under President Trump

It is unfortunate that Mike and I are too broke, and too old, to immigrate to a truly civilized country which isn't involved in such horrific practices, but that is the reality right now.

The BOY (Butcher of Yemen) is on his 2018 road show right now, first in the UK (most probably to negotiate for more bombs and bullets with which to continue his genocidal military campaign in Yemen), and will be touching down in DC later this month, for most probably the same reason.

I would like to hope that he is greeted by Americans who peacefully protest his visit; and let President Trump understand, clearly, that although the BOY may be one of his BFFs in the Middle East, he is no friend of honest, logical, pragmatic US foreign policy in the region, none of which appears to be in view at the moment.

WHAT THE MONSANTO PAPERS TELL US ABOUT CORPORATE SCIENCE

The Monsanto Papers are a treasure trove of internal documents slowly released since March 2017 as part of a US lawsuit by cancer victims against Monsanto over its ubiquitous herbicide, glyphosate. They tell a lot about how Monsanto actively subverts science, both in the company’s practices and the way it abuses science’s moral authority to push for its interests.

The Monsanto Papers make for fascinating reading, all the more since Monsanto constantly uses and abuses the moral prestige of science in its propaganda.

But the Monsanto Papers show the company’s real, and rather troubling, approach to science and evidence. Revelations include confirmation that the company hardly tested the real-world toxicity of its products, actively avoided pursuing studies which might show unwelcome results, and ghostwrote the studies of supposedly independent scientists.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In a moral and just world, which ours is not, Monsanto should be sued out of existence; and the reasons for that can be found in the information below:

Monsanto spent $4,600,000 on lobbying in 2016

Monsanto outspends all other agribusinesses on efforts to persuade Congress and the public to maintain the industrial agriculture status quo.

FRENCH PROSECUTORS OFFICIALLY CHARGE MARINE LE PEN FOR TWEETING AGAINST ISIS TERRORISTS

The unelected rulers of the EU in Brussels are about to bring down one of their biggest critics, as lackey French President Macron is moving forward with charges against former French Presidential candidate Marine Le Pen.

It is no secret that the EU finds free speech to be a nuisance, and has nothing but contempt for leaders like Le Pen who has historically called out the dictatorial rule of Brussels, by highlighting the endless illegal wars in the Middle East, covert support for ISIS, and promotion of a destructive migrant policy.

The former French National Front leader has now been formally charged with circulating “violent messages that incite terrorism”, for a series of tweets she sent after the massacre at Paris concert hall the Bataclan in 2015.

The crime levied against Le Pen is punishable by up to three years in prison and a fine of 75,000 euros.

Zerohedge reports…

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, Le Pen is, predictably, going to be politically crucified, potentially jailed and fined... for telling the truth?!?

When the truth becomes "hate speech", a society, and a culture, is in deep trouble, and is sliding down a slippery slope from which it may never recover.

I don't like Le Pen or her politics, and I have known a number of people from the Middle East who are absolute poster children for legal immigration.

One who comes to mind is a wonderfully cultured gentleman, who speaks excellent English, who used to work with Mike many years ago.

he was Muslim, his wife was Hindu, and they named their little girl Sarah, which is the name of a Jewish princess.

They were absolutely lovely, and the little girl was bright, and beautiful, and raised without prejudice against any faith tradition, but was taught to be respectful of all good people, no matter what their background.

But if these events are actually documented to have happened, I must absolutely defend Le Pen's right to say that they happened, and ask the French government just what the hell it is going to do to prevent similar acts of barbarity in the future.

Either these images were real, or they are not; and if they were real, the French people should have the right to see them, and have an intelligent disussion about how to keep people like these monsters from getting into France.

SAUDI PROSECUTION ACCUSES YOUTUBE OF SUPPORTING TERRORISM

The Saudi Public Prosecutor has accused the renowned social networking site YouTube of contributing to spreading extremist ideology and helping recruit young people to join terrorist groups.

The prosecutor made the accusations during the trial of eight Saudis and two Yemenis accused of shooting at a security patrol in Riyadh in 2005.

The prosecution said investigations revealed that the group members received instructions to carry out their terrorist attacks from a Daesh leader through videos published on YouTube.

The prosecutor accused the defendants of 63 charges, including listening to lectures by Daesh thinkers via YouTube, responding to an inflammatory lecture calling to kill foreigners and security men, as well as carrying out instructions from one of the organisation’s leaders to shoot at security men with the intention of killing them.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

My word, please tell me: is this the same YouTube which has been found to be doing ...this?!?

The February panelists included several prominent online conservative and moderate voices who have been impacted by social media bias, shadow banning and other methods meant to silence voices and limit readers and viewers access to information.

So, let me get my head wrapped around this; in YouTube/Gooogle-Think, and in what passes for alleged "community standards", it is perfectly FINE to be showing Daesh instructions for assassinating and killing people, but HORRIFIC to be showing any videos of conservative individuals whose perception of current events just doesn't match that of the American Deep State?!?

And let me remind you of the following: YouTube is a Google Subsidiary, so it is not by accident, with Google aggressively censoring and eviscerating conservative sites where they can, through algorhythms, that this kind of thing happens on YouTube as well:

YouTube is an American video-sharing website headquartered in San Bruno, California. The service was created by three former PayPal employees—Chad Hurley, Steve Chen, and Jawed Karim—in February 2005. Google bought the site in November 2006 for US$1.65 billion; YouTube now operates as one of Google's subsidiaries.

The Online Hate Index

The Online Hate Index (OHI), a joint initiative of ADL’s Center for Technology and Society and UC Berkeley’s D-Lab, is designed to transform human understanding of hate speech via machine learning into a scalable tool that can be deployed on internet content to discover the scope and spread of online hate speech.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is no joke. They are automating censorship.

Australian diplomat whose tip prompted FBI’s Russia-probe has tie to Clintons

The Australian diplomat whose tip in 2016 prompted the Russia-Trump investigation previously arranged one of the largest foreign donations to Bill and Hillary Clinton’s charitable efforts, documents show.

Former Australian Foreign Minister Alexander Downer’s role in securing $25 million in aid from his country to help the Clinton Foundation fight AIDS is chronicled in decade-old government memos archived on the Australian foreign ministry’s website.

The money was initially allocated to the Clinton Foundation but later was routed through an affiliate of the charity known as the Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI), officials said. Australia was one of four foreign governments to donate more than $25 million to CHAI, records show.

Downer, now Australia’s ambassador to London, provided the account of a conversation with Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos at a London bar in 2016 that became the official reason the FBI opened the Russia counterintelligence probe.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why am I singularly unsurprised at this revelation?!?

To far too many at the upper echelons of geopolitics, campaigns, particularly when lost, are viewed as a blood sport, where creating the political death of the opponent is the only way to win.

Iconic 30000-Year-Old Ancient Female Dubbed “Dangerous Pornography” By Facebook

A 30,000-year-old carving of a voluptuous naked woman known as the “Venus of Willendorf” statuette, has been censored by Facebook as “dangerous pornography”.

Discovered in the early 20th century near the Austrian village of Willendorf this prized ancient artifact is the holy grail of prehistoric art, but now, it’s been censored by Facebook as “dangerous pornography” messaged Laura Ghianda, the user of the banned image, reported the Daily Mail.

Yes, you did read that right, and I will patiently wait for you to finish your facepalm!

Director general of the Natural History Museum in Vienna, Christian Koeberl, told reporters in a statement that the 4-inch statue from the early stone age “is the icon of the Museum” and he went so far as to say it was “the most popular and best-known prehistoric representation of a woman worldwide,” according to a report in the Daily Mail.

The 'Purge' Is Out Of Control, Congress Must Strip Social Media, YouTube Liability Immunity From Them Because They Are Not 'Neutral' Public Forums

In January 2018, Senator Ted Cruz grilled representatives from Facebook, Twitter and Google's YouTube over their overt censorship of Independent and conservative users, providing multiple examples of that censorship, showing it was almost entirely enacted against those that lean right of the political aisle.

Cruz prefaced his direct and pointed questions by forcing these representatives to answer one simple question, which was "Do you consider your companies to be neutral public forums?" Despite attempts to not directly answer the question with a simple yes or no, two of the companies finally had to claim they were, and the third simply answered 'yes' before Cruz moved on to provide evidence that they were indeed censoring conservative content.

Local bar owner outraged over his wife’s deportation

Great example of a denial of Due Process as well as a Writ of Habeus Corpus.
Federal Judge has got to be angry.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- A Kansas City businessman is upset over what he calls the “unlawful deportation” of his wife.

He said they were in the process of taking their latest appeal to the 18th Judicial District Court.

When he found his wife was going to be deported on Friday, the couple’s lawyer was able to get a judge to sign a writ of habeas corpus, stating that Leticia remain in custody at the Platte County Jail until March 12.

Six hours later, Steve said he received a call from his wife saying she was in Mexico.

Never Forget, The US Gov’t Slaughtered Dozens in a Church Over an Illegal Gun Part

This week, President Donald Trump betrayed his base and Americans in general as he advocated for confiscating guns with no due process.

“Take the guns first, go through due process second,” Trump said.

This blatant attack on the very thing that makes America great, due process, has been in the making since before the Florida shooting, but Trump appears to be striking while the iron is hot.

The US government carried out the deadliest church massacre in history which led to the deaths of 82 men, women, and children. It all came to a violent end 25 years ago in Texas and it all began with allegations of illegal gun parts.

Nolte: Snopes Fact Checks, Facebook Threatens Satire Site for Mocking CNN

The Babylon Bee openly advertises itself as a satire site. Recent headlines include, “Local Pastor Hoping Curling Metaphors Go Over Big This Sunday,” “Nation That Calls Trump ‘Hitler’ Demands He Take All Guns Away,” “Calvinist Dog Corrects Owner: ‘No One Is A Good Boy’,” and “New Exercise Bike Forces You To Watch Christian Movies Until You Hit Your Calories Goal.”

Not only is this fairly anodyne stuff, but as you can see, the Babylon Bee is more than willing to satirize their own among the Faithful.

Naturally, none of this matters to our left-wing tech overlords, who are becoming increasingly desperate to censor free speech coming from conservatives, Christians, and the like.

Stop treating the Southern Poverty Law Center like it's a respectable and responsible organization

YouTube has tapped the Southern Poverty Law Center to help it police objectionable content, the Daily Caller reported this week.

What a disaster. YouTube couldn't have chosen a worse or less trustworthy partner.

The SPLC is a dishonest, irresponsible and obnoxiously partisan organization. Trusting them to decide what constitutes objectionable and “extremist” content, as YouTube’s more than 100 “Trusted Flaggers” have been asked to do, is like asking the inmates to run the asylum.

YouTube deletes entire Health Ranger video channel; deletes over 1700 videos in latest politically motivated censorship purge

In the latest gross violation of free speech committed by radical left-wing tech giants, YouTube has now deleted the entire Health Ranger video channel, wiping out over 1,700 videos covering everything from nutrition, natural medicine, history, science and current events.

Over the last two weeks, YouTube has been on a censorship rampage that’s apparently run by the SPLC, a radical left-wing hate group that despises Christianity, the Second Amendment and patriots in particular. Hundreds of prominent conservative video channels have been targeted for termination by YouTube, leading many independent media leaders like myself to call for government regulation of YouTube to protect free speech and end the tyranny.

“It’s just so ironic because our videos are getting flagged for harassment and bullying… That’s the excuse they use to take them down, and eventually take the channel down,” explained Paul Joseph Watson in a Breitbart News Daily interview.

THE ANATOMY OF A LIE

In an interview on Fox News with Tucker Carlson the day following the town hall, Colton described that Ms. Stevenson, in a series of emails, had advised Colton’s father Glenn Haab to ask Colton to ask more questions instead of a “speech” and instead “stick” to a singular question that according to Colton, would not have been the one question he wanted to ask. Also in the interview, Colton described the pre-written questions on small pieces of paper like the ones Emma Gonzalez stumbled to read from at the town hall as evidence the questions were rehearsed and planned ahead of time. Colton refused to participate in the town hall and immediately people wanted to know why.

GOOGLE BLINKS: YOUTUBE RESTORES JEROME CORSI CHANNEL WITH NO STRIKES

Eric Schmidt and Google/YouTube blinked yesterday, restoring late Thursday the YouTube channel of this author that they had terminated unceremoniously hours earlier on Thursday afternoon.

The quick reversal of policy suggested Google and YouTube were preparing to wave the white flag of surrender in their purge to remove conservatives and libertarians from the Internet, after the public announcement that YouTube had invited the infamous hate-mongering Southern Poverty Law Center onto the campus to police political discourse on the website.

In canceling Dr. Corsi’s YouTube channel, Google also canceled Dr. Corsi’s gmail account, sending out a message that the gmail account could not be accessed because of potentially fraudulent use of the account.

ALL WARS ARE BANKERS' WARS!

"The most hated sort [of moneymaking], and with the greatest reason, is usury, which makes a gain out of money itself, and not from the natural use of it. For money was intended to be used in exchange, but not to increase at interest. And this term usury which means the birth of money from money, is applied to the breeding of money, because the offspring resembles the parent. Wherefore of all modes of making money this is the most unnatural." -- Aristotle (384-322 BCE)

West, silent on Damascus shelling, threatens Ghouta action

France has joined the US and Britain in threatening Damascus with possible airstrikes in the event of further chemical weapons use in Syria.

Their threats on Friday came as terrorist groups continued shelling a safe corridor declared by the Syrian government for civilians to leave Eastern Ghouta.

Takfiri terrorists have turned the enclave on the suburbs of Damascus to a launch pad for mortar attacks on the Syrian capital.

The Syrian army is currently in the midst of an operation to drive the terrorists out of Eastern Ghouta, but it is facing a hostile West threatening attacks on Syrian troops which it accuses of targeting civilians.

Western leaders were quick to point the finger at the Syrian government after reports of chlorine release in Eastern Ghouta last week.

For years, foreign-backed militants have appeared to release chemical substances in the areas close to the site of government airstrikes and capture the aftermath on videos.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The logical question which one has to ask here, is why al-Assad be gassing and poisoning his own people, when his and Russia's forces are so close to a military victory against the jihadists?!?

And here's a companion piece from the English language version of sputniknews.com:

US will turn Ghouta into a Terrorist Stronghold - Syrian General.

The US cannot do this from the air, because of Russian air defense, but is doing it on the ground, where terrorist jihadists are laying seige to small cities, and using hostages as human shields.

The Shadow of an Israeli/US Attack on Lebanon and Syria Grows Larger by the Day

In Lebanon, the Prime Minister Saad Hariri has returned to Saudi Arabia to meet with his Saudi patrons for the first time since his shocking resignation on November 4, 2017, which he later withdrew. The timing of his visit suggests another anti-Iranian and anti-Hezbollah announcement will follow. Will Hariri issue another statement accusing Iran and Hezbollah of destabilizing Lebanon to add to the war rhetoric coming out of Israel at the same time that Lebanon is making a military agreement with Russia? The moves on the chessboard are happening fast and furious. Divide and conquer is clearly the strategy of Saudi Arabia, Israel, and the United States.

Iraqi Parliament Demands Timeline for US Withdrawal

The Iraqi parliament has passed a resolution this week thanking the US and other friendly nations for their support in defeating ISIS, and also demanding that the Abadi government set a strict timeline for the withdrawal of all foreign troops from the country.

Ruling coalition MP Husham al-Suhail insisted that parliament wasn’t trying to force any specific timeline on the deal, but wanted the government to make it clear, having declared victory, when the foreign troops would be gone.

That’s potentially going to be a problem though, because while the other nations are all making clear their presence is very temporary, the US has been very public from the start that this is a permanent deployment, and they don’t plan to ever leave.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I wonder just how long it will take for the guy who forced the US's hand in the original SOFA agreement between Iraq and the US to appear; where in the world is Moqtada Al Sadr these days?!?

Remember him?!? He was in charge of the Mahdi Army in Iraq, and was virulently anti-American. He stated that if the US violated the SOFA agreement by staying one day longer than stated in the document, our military would be sitting ducks for his Mahdi Army.

So they got out of Iraq - for the moment... before Isis came in, and the US military went back into Iraq.

Well, let me get back to Moqtada; he has been a busy guy, that's for sure. As reported at the Baghdad Post, January 18, 2018:

Sadirists Reveal New Coalition ahead of May 15th elections The article goes on to state:

"Istiqlal Party, affiliated with the Sadrist Movement, revealed on Thursday details of the coalition it has formed for the coming elections.

Member of the party's secretariat general Mohammed Rashk said that the party is aligning itself with the blocs that adopt the same platform based on rebuilding the institutions of the state and enforcing comprehensive reforms.

He added the coalition will be named "Those Marching Towards Reform".

Should Al Sadr's coalition win this election (and he is still wildly popular in Iraq) it would be an absolute game changer for Iraq; Israel; and the US government.

Israeli police question Netanyahu in third corruption case

Israeli police questioned Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for five hours on Friday over what news reports said was his possible role in a far-reaching bribery scandal allegedly involving the granting of regulatory benefits worth millions of dollars to Israeli telecom giant Bezeq.

It is the first time that Netanyahu has been investigated in connection with this case, which is said to involve a quid pro quo arrangement of positive news coverage for the Netanyahu family on the popular Walla news website, owned by Bezeq’s majority shareholder, Shaul Elovitch.

The questioning came shortly before Netanyahu was scheduled to depart for the United States, where he is expected to visit President Trump at the White House on Monday.

This is the third, and possibly most serious, corruption case so far involving Netanyahu, Israel’s longest serving prime minister.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF this testimony becomes the "tipping point" on the way to an indictment for Netanyahu, we can expect that the timetable for all planned, overt and covert military actions against his neighbors in the Middle East, like Lebanon, Iran, and Syria, to accelerate exponentially.

Netanyahu is coming to the US to address AIPAC, and will also meet with President Trump. Later in the month, the Saudi Prince Salman, AKA the Butcher of Yemen, will also be coming to the US to meet with the President, and talk business.
Saudi Crown Prince Expectedc to Visit the US March 19th through the 22nd

There is a huge joint US/Israeli war game in Israel, simulating an intense bombing of Israel.
This drill is set to start next week, and it will last for a couple of weeks.

Should it appear that the excrement is about to hit the ventilation shaft, due to his legal troubles, how convenient for Netanyahu, should he decide to greenlight a "false flag" against any of the "usual suspects" (Syria; Iran; Lebanon),to have US troops right in place, pummelling Israel's "enemies du jour", right alongside the IDF as a distraction.

Satellite Images Reveal Iran Establishing Missile Base Near Damascus - Reports

Recent satellite imagery taken outside Syria's capital Damascus show that Iran has constructed a likely missile base that can strike anywhere in Israel, according to media reports.

The Iranian facility is operated by the Quds Force, known as the special operations force of the larger Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), and is located approximately eight miles southwest of Damascus, Fox News reported on Tuesday.

In this photo released by the Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA), members of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard celebrate after launching a missile during their maneuver in an undisclosed location in Iran (File)

The media outlet said it acquired satellite photos from ImageSat International, which purportedly show two new white hangars, each roughly 30 yards by 20 yards, used to store short-and medium-range missiles, the report said.
Israel has repeatedly warned Iran that it will defend itself against any attack from the Islamic Republic.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

OK, folks; a little logic here; why the blazes would Iran build an alleged missile base in Syria, when the country is still struggling for stability?!?

Would they not be concerned that such missiles could get into the hands of the jihadists who are still in that country, and used against both them and Syria government forces?!?

Each facility is about 90 square feet; that is a very small facility.

The Israelis can call these hangars anything they want; but at the end of the day, you have to have such missiles as close to the missile launching facility as safely possible.

So yes, where, please, is the missile launching facility from which these missiles can be launched?!?

The Iranian government and military may be many things, but stupid is not one of them.

Militants continue shelling humanitarian corridor from Eastern Ghouta — defense officialMore:http://tass.com/world/992100

Mortar shelling of the humanitarian corridor from Eastern Ghouta continued on Thursday, Major-General Vladimir Zolotukhin, a spokesman for the Russian Center for Reconciliation of the Warring Parties in Syria, told Russian reporters.

Civilians in Eastern Ghouta have been contacting Syrian human rights activists en masse asking for their assistance in leaving the territories seized by militants, he went on.

"According to the information, over the past 24 hours the number of requests from the citizens of Eastern Ghouta to the human rights activists has increased manyfold. They ask to provide assistance and help in leaving the territory controlled by the militants," Zolotukhin said.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Trump Hints at Tougher Punishment for Drug Dealers

U.S. President Donald Trump hinted at a much tougher policy toward drug dealers, during a White House summit on the nation's opioid crisis.

"Some countries have a tough penalty, the ultimate penalty, and they have much less of a drug problem than we do," Trump said at the Thursday event.

The comment appeared to be in line with a media report suggesting Trump is toying with the idea of supporting the death penalty for major drug trafficking offenses.

The report quoted an unnamed senior administration official who said the president often jokes about killing drug dealers.

"You know the Chinese and Filipinos don't have a drug problem. They just kill them," the senior administration official quoted Trump as saying.

During his event Thursday, Trump did not endorse the idea of the death penalty for drug traffickers.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mr. President, a word here, please; has anyone in your administration mentioned the enormous success Portugal has had with its anti drug policy?!?

I hope someone who cares about any anti drug program introduced by his Administration being successful will mention this to President Trump.

Mr. President, there is a smarter way to do this: and I think it is about damn well time, given the epic, and collossal failure of US drug policies so far, that we, as a country, need to learn from the successes of other countries with which have established a drug policy that actually works.

IN 2002, PRESIDENT BUSH IMPOSED 30% STEEL TARIFFS; THIS IS WHAT HAPPENED NEXT

In an eerie analogue of what is about to take place, on March 5, 2002 President George W. Bush imposed tariffs as high as 30% on global steel imports.

The temporary tariffs of 8–30% were originally scheduled to remain in effect until 2005. They were imposed to give U.S. steel makers protection from what a U.S. probe determined was a detrimental surge in steel imports, as more than 30 steel makers had recently declared bankruptcy. Canada and Mexico were exempt from the tariffs because of penalties the United States would face under NAFTA. Additionally, some developing countries such as Argentina, Thailand, and Turkey were also exempt.

The response was immediate.

DID TRUMP ORGANIZATION KNOW OF MONEY LAUNDERING, DRUG TRAFFICKING LINKED TO PANAMA HOTEL? CONGRESSMEMBERS WANT TO KNOW

Two members of Congress challenged the Trump Organization to explain whether or not it knew of allegations of drug trafficking and money laundering tied to the Trump Ocean Club Panama, according to a letter sent to the company’s general counsel Wednesday.

“Given widely reported allegations of money laundering and drug trafficking in connection with Trump Ocean Club Panama, we believe it is imperative to understand the Trump Organization’s knowledge of and role in sales at this property,” the letter sent to Trump Organization attorney Alan Garten read, according to a copy provided to Newsweek. Reuters first reported the letter Thursday morning.

The letter cited reports of agents involved in selling units at the Trump Ocean Club property also being linked to trafficking and laundering. Brazilian real estate salesman Alexandre Ventura Nogueira said he met with the president’s daughter, Ivanka Trump, in Panama City in 2006, NBC News/Reuters reported in November.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

More distraction away from Hillarygate; a proper investigation has happened, and there, most likely, is no "there" there.

And from the New American comes a little companion piece, regarding Hillarygate, posted also at blacklistednews.com:

Russia Bragged about 10 Spies Assigned to Clintp Meuller, Mc Cabe, and Rosenstien helped cover it up.

The article goes on to state:

"In a case that resembles rats abandoning a sinking ship, long-time Clinton advisor and confidant Dick Morris admitted in a recent opinion piece he wrote for The Western Journal that in the buildup to the deal’s approval by CIFUS “nine investors in Uranium One gave the Clinton Foundation a combined total of $145 million.” Morris also wrote:

In the years before it came up for CIFUS approval, Russia deployed 10 spies in the United States with a single mission: To get close to Hillary Clinton to get her to approve the Uranium One deal.

Fortunately, the FBI uncovered the nest of spies one year before the deal came up for approval. (The Bureau acted to arrest the spies when it did because one of them had risen to a high position in a company owned by Hillary’s finance chairman.)

Then, to seal the deal, Russian dictator Vladimir Putin arranged for former president Bill Clinton to address the Renaissance Bank in Moscow, an institution closely connected to the Kremlin.

The New American has reported on the corruption, profiteering, and incestuous relationship between the Clinton State Department and Clinton Foundation in previous articles. Now, even a Clinton insider admits to Clinton’s actions in swelling the coffers of the Clinton Foundation while transferring at least 20 percent of U.S. uranium to Russia in a deal so crooked it would require a Clinton to pull it off. And Clinton, who is more than a little responsible for spawning investigations into Trump’s alleged dealings with Russia with her “Putin’s puppet” remarks during the campaign, now finds herself being outed by a former die-hard supporter.

The opinion piece of Morris stops short of making the connection, but it is obvious: Hillary Clinton was “Putin’s puppet” and the American people should thank God that she is not behind the desk in the Oval Office where she would be in a better position to do Russia’s bidding."

Schumer slammed for citing skin color in vote against white judicial nominee

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer faced a stern rebuke from congressional colleagues for citing skin color in voting against a white federal judge nominee earlier this week.

Schumer, D-N.Y., said on the Senate floor Wednesday that the nomination of Marvin Quattlebaum, a white lawyer who is a partner at Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough in Greenville, S.C., “speaks to the overall lack of diversity in President Trump’s selections for the federal judiciary.”

Sen. Chuck Schumer on Wednesday rejected the Trump administration's nomination of Marvin Quattlebaum because he's white. Schumer argued the nomination "speaks to the overall lack of diversity in President Trump's selections for the federal judiciary."

He complained that many of Trump’s nominees have been white males. He also complained that Republicans previously held up two black judges nominated under the Obama administration for the position— which The Post and Courier notes has long been vacant.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Oh, really, Senator Schumer?!?

You're great at carping and critising President Trump for his alleged "lack of diversity"; but seriously, what have YOU been doing to make it easier for students of all minorities to find it easier to get into a prestigious law school; work in the judiciary; and get promoted up the ranks until they are ready to be presented as magnificently qualified candidates for the job in which the Senate just confirmed Quattlebaum?!?

I would bet a worthless US cent, that the short answer is, absolutely nothing.

US STATE DEPT APPROVES SALE OF $47MN WORTH OF ANTI-TANK MISSILES TO UKRAINE

The US Department of State has signed off on the sale of Javelin anti-tank missiles to the government of Ukraine, the Pentagon has confirmed. The deal is valued at $47 million and needs congressional approval next.
If approved by Congress, the deal would involve the sale of 210 missiles and 37 command units, Defense News reported, citing Pentagon sources. The Pentagon claims it will not affect the military balance in the region, where the Kiev government is locked in conflict with two regions in the east of the country. Kiev has been accusing Moscow of backing the rebels, to the point of officially designating Russia an “aggressor” state.

"The Javelin system will help Ukraine build its long-term defense capacity to defend its sovereignty and territorial integrity in order to meet its national defense requirements," the Pentagon said in a statement.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am having a double face-palm, at warp speed, upon reading this.

The US government should be supporting a peace process, and narrative here.

Instead, what have they done?!? Prop up one of the most dangerously corrupt countries in the region, and get them to believe, in a sort of magical thinking way, that they, with US "Advisors" assistance, can can actually arm-wrestle the breakaway provinces of Lugansk, Donetsk, and Crimea, back into the Ukrainian orbit with extreme force.

I would politely suggest that until Poroshenko gets the corruption in his country under some kind of control, that the US government should be focusing on helping him achieve that goal first, and not arming him with some very serious weaponry.

To a child with a hammer, everything is a nail, which needs to be pounded; so it will be with the Ukrainian military, and these weapons. It will be too temping to start to ramp up raids against Lugansk, and Donetsk, against which their populations cannot fight back.

And I would like to politely remind those in the bowels of power in DC that Crimea, in a class move that is thoroughly protected by the UN, to which Ukraine and the US government are allegedly signatories, that peaceful self-determintation is a right of every people.

They are now part of the Russian Federation, and this happened by the holding of two referenda in Crimea.

I really wouldn't want to mess with this, frankly; it is a can of worms that thinking world leaders would not touch, because they understand how Russia will respond if they do.

Tor Project "Almost 100% Funded By The US Government": FOIA

By following the money, I discovered that Tor was not a grassroots. I was able to show that despite its indie radical cred and claims to help its users protect themselves from government surveillance online, Tor was almost 100% funded by three U.S. National Security agencies: the Navy, the State Department and the BBG. Following the money revealed that Tor was not a grassroots outfit, but a military contractor with its own government contractor number. In other words: it was a privatized extension of the very same government that it claimed to be fighting.

The documents conclusively showed that Tor is not independent at all. The organization did not have free reign to do whatever it wanted, but was kept on a very short leash and bound by contracts with strict contractual obligations. It was also required to file detailed monthly status reports that gave the U.S. government a clear picture of what Tor employees were developing, where they went and who they saw. -Yasha Levine

NSA SECRETLY HELPED CONVICT DEFENDANTS IN U.S. COURTS, CLASSIFIED DOCUMENTS REVEAL

But Justice Department lawyers gained their conviction against Kurbanov after failing to disclose a legally significant fact: Kurbanov’s conversations with his alleged terrorist associate had been captured through PRISM, a National Security Agency mass surveillance program whose existence was revealed in documents provided by whistleblower Edward Snowden. Under PRISM, the government obtains communications directly from at least eight large technology companies without the need for warrants, a type of practice authorized in 2008, when Congress provided new surveillance powers under FISA.

While traditional FISA authority permits spying on a particular person or group through warrants issued by the secret Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, under the new powers, codified in FISA Section 702, monitoring is approved in bulk by the court through what is essentially a recipe for mass surveillance.

Due Process Violation

https://legaldictionary.net/due-process/

The Due Process Clause is included in both the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments to the United States Constitution. The clause prohibits the government from depriving a person of their right to liberty or property without due process

The subject of Due Process dates back to 1215 when King John of England issued clause 39 of the Magna Carta. During his rule, King John promised his people that they would not be stripped of their basic human rights. This English rule set the standards for due process in the United States and other countries around the world.

Trump argued that the investigation will be a slow and ineffective remedy for "potentially massive FISA abuse." He also mentioned that the IG "has no prosecutorial power and [is] already late with reports on [former FBI Director James] Comey," and is "an Obama guy" to boot.

Report: Trump, Kushner foundations have donated thousands to Chabad

(JTA) — President-elect Donald Trump’s foundation has donated thousands of dollars to Chabad institutions.

The Israeli daily Haaretz also reported that the foundation of the parents of Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner gave some $342,500 to Chabad institutions and projects over a 10-year period.

The Donald J. Trump Foundation donated $11,550 to three Chabad institutions. In 2008, a year before Ivanka Trump and Kushner were married, the Trump foundation donated $6,750 to the Lubavitch Youth Organization in Brooklyn and $1,800 to the Chabad of Southampton Jewish Charity. In 2011, the foundation donated $3,000 to Chabad of East Boca Raton – an institution in Florida also supported by the Kushners.

The Pentagon’s “Ides of March”: Best Month to Go to War

Is it a coincidence?

In recent history, from the Vietnam war to the present, the month of March has been chosen by Pentagon and NATO military planners as the “best month” to go to war.

With the exception of the War on Afghanistan (October 2001) and the 1990-91 Gulf War, all major US-NATO and allied led military operations over a period of more than half a century –since the invasion of Vietnam by US ground forces on March 8, 1965– have been initiated in the month of March.

The Ides of March (Idus Martiae) is a day in the Roman calendar which broadly corresponds to March 15. The Ides of March is also known as the date on which Julius Caesar was assassinated in 44 BC.

Lest we forget, the month of March (in the Roman Calendar) is dedicated to Mars (Martius), the Roman God of War.

For the Romans, the month of March (Martius) marked “the time to start new military campaigns.”

Support America,The Bill of Rights and The Constitution. I'm done with this fool.

President Donald Trump embraced Sen. Joe Manchin’s (D-WV) gun control bill but rejected Rep. Steve Scalise’s (R-LA) push for national reciprocity during a bipartisan meeting with lawmakers Wednesday afternoon.

Trump spoke of the using the Manchin/Toomey bill “as a base” to which other gun bills can be added, and then continued taking comments from various senators and representatives in attendance.

Trump shut down Scalise’s reciprocity push, suggesting the gun control package being pieced together would never pass if national reciprocity were added to it.

John Podesta: "Kushner Better Start Wearing His Kevlar On His Back"

Former Clinton campaign manager John Podesta raised some eyebrows in a Tuesday tweet directed at Presidential son-in-law Jared Kushner, who reportedly just lost his access to top secret information amid accusations that "officials in at least four countries" had discussed ways to manipulate the 37-year-old real estate magnate.

"Jared better start wearing his kevlar on his back," Podesta tweeted after suggesting that Kushner's troubles had just begun - referencing a widely mocked picture taken Iraq of Jared awkwardly wearing a bulletproof vest over a blazer.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Was that a threat,... or a promise from "She Who Cannot Be Named"?!?!?

But then, what can we expect from someone who very possibly has assassins on speed dial?!?
