SAUDI CRACKDOWN ON CANADA COULD BACKFIRE

“The Saudi leadership wants to drive home a message that it’s fine to invest in Saudi Arabia and bring your money to Saudi Arabia, but that there are red lines that should not be crossed,” Riccardo Fabiani, a geopolitical analyst at Energy Aspects, told Bloomberg, but warned that such strategy could backfire.

Analysts are currently not sure how the feud will unfold, but Aurel Braun, a professor of political science and international relations at the University of Toronto, told Canada’s Global News that Saudi Arabia is unlikely to back down and reverse all its retaliatory measures without getting something back from Canada.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is not apologizing for his country’s call that the Saudis release human rights activists.

DIVIDE & CONQUER ON FULL DISPLAY AS MEDIA DEVOTES DAYS OF ATTENTION TO 20 WHITE NATIONALISTS IN DC

Approximately 20 white nationalists rallied in the nation’s capital over the weekend on the anniversary of the face off in Charlottesville, Virginia and the media has incessantly devoted round the clock coverage of it for the last week. Why is that?

In the days leading up to the protest, the mainstream media essentially acted as advertisement for the tiny group of white nationalists who’s lackluster turnout would have likely gone entirely unnoticed otherwise. The divide was stoked so much that hundreds of counter protesters showed up ready for battle only to be sadly disappointed that they had no one to scream at.

While it is certainly noble to protest racism and hate—as the majority of the 40 anti-racism groups did over the weekend—their response was anything but organic. Thanks to the heavy media coverage and fear that “white nazis” would be gathering in D.C., hundreds of counter-protesters were able to prepare and show up for the rally.

UAE: UP TO 25 YEARS IN JAIL FOR CYBER CRIMINALS

The UAE has made an amendment to a 2012 Cyber Crime law, increasing financial penalties and extending jail terms to up to 25 years for terrorism related activity, WAM Agency reported today.

Those engaging in cybercrimes in the UAE can be sent to jail for a period not exceeding 25 years in addition to a fine up to some $1 million.

The terrorism related activity includes: “whoever establishes, manages or runs a website or publishes information on the computer network or information technology means for the interest of a terrorist group or any unauthorised group, association, organisation”, the WAM Agency statement read.

‘HATE CRIMES’

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why does it not surprise me, that this same country, terrified of what its own people may think about its government, is torturing in Yemen?!?

That has to be part of the three-legged stool, is it not, of surveillance, threatening those who do not believe the government, posting alternative viewpoints, and then using torture to reinforce the consequences of the first two acts.

This is all as logical as it is deplorable.

SECRET REPORT REVEALS TORTURE USED IN SAUDI-LED COALITION PRISONS IN YEMEN

Al Jazeera received a secret report prepared by former military officials who worked with the Saudi-UAE alliance in Yemen on the conditions of prisons and secret detention centres and forced disappearances.

The information in the report matched the testimonies of prisoners and abductees given to human rights activists. Such details also reinforced what had been revealed by the Associated Press in previous investigations.

The report revealed some of the atrocities taking place in these secret UAE-controlled prisons situated in southern Yemen. The violations range from murdering detainees and abductees to torture and deprivation. Moreover, the report listed sites and names of secret graves, detainees tortured to death and missing persons, as well as identities of the torturers and the details of interrogations

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Remember when Gina Haspel, now head of the CIA, assured Congressional Representatives, that torture would never happen again on her watch, no matter where in the world?!?

Who is arming, funding, and advising the Saudis on their genocide in Yemen?!?

Were I the same Congressional Representatives who interviewed her, and heard those promises in English she made about never having this happen again, and understanding what was now going on in Yemen, Courtesy of the UAE, and I would put her back side right back into the investigative chair, and ask her why she is allowing the UAE to do this.

Or, perhaps, given the proclivities of some members of the US Deep State to "get off" on this kind of torture, psychologically, one might say that, perhaps, she has already been given a "get out of jail, fee" card, with her defense as being given that "she is not in control" of UAE torture in Yemen.

While this may be technically true, that Haspel, apparently, is making absolutely zero moves to stop this, while the best intellects in intelligence work, claim, irrefutably, that torture does not work, and only gets the tortured person to say what the torturers to say to get the torture to stop, means that she is, personally, ethically and morally, cheering the torturers on.

The leadership of this country had a choice with her nomination; they could have chosen a Hanns Scharrf-like character, a German-born American and British world War II hero, who never used torture to get intelligence from his prisoners, but was unfailingly kind, and used to get them day passes for cultural events, or someone with the human rights sensitivities just to the right of those of Attila the Hun.

You have seen the direction this Government has chosen to go, with Haspel's confirmation, and that makes me very much fear for the future of my country.

Gun Owners Should Fear the Deep State

Some gun owners believe the deep state poses no peril to them because they are entitled to due process, a presumption of innocence and other constitutional rights. But such assurances can quickly become mirages when many politicians portray every privately owned firearm as a massacre in waiting. Many liberals will champion any “show us the gun and we’ll find a crime” crackdown. “Those who have nothing to hide, have nothing to fear” is an old saying designed to breed docility. But gun owners can afford to accept this adage less now than ever before. The deep state stands ready to exploit the rising tide of laws that turn gun owners into criminals who can be destroyed for political and bureaucratic profit.

In A Corporatist System Of Government, Corporate Censorship Is State Censorship

We’re going to have to find a way to keep the oligarchs from having their cake and eating it too. Either (A) corporations are indeed private organizations separate from the government, in which case the people need to get money out of politics and government agencies out of Silicon Valley so they can start acting like it, and insist that their owners can’t be dragged out on to the Senate floor and instructed on what they can and can’t do with their business, or (B) these new media platforms get treated like the government agencies they function as, and the people get all the First Amendment protection that comes with it. Right now the social engineers are double-dipping in a way that will eventually give the alliance of corporate plutocrats and secretive government agencies the ability to fully control the public’s access to ideas and information. If they accomplish that, it’s game over for humanity.

Conservative Twitter voices say they are being attacked with malicious ‘abusive speech’ complaints

Several prominent journalists raised alarm at baseless complaints being sent to Twitter over stories on sensitive topics, such as the activities of British spy Christopher Steele, and links between Sen. Dianne Feinstein and China.
Conservative newspaper Washington Examiner's Byron York was reported for posting an apparently innocuous link to his own August 9 story, which exposed the lobbying work Steele, notorious for his Donald Trump dossier, performed for Russian billionaire Oleg Deripaska.

York said that he was not found guilty of violating the social network's rules.

12 Best Free YouTube Alternative Sites For Watching Videos In 2018

YouTube is undoubtedly the internet’s most dominant platform for streaming free videos online. It hosts billions of videos that are viewed and commented upon on a daily basis. With the addition of a large amount of content each day, its vast user base continues to grow actively.

However, with guidelines of the platform getting revised without any prior notices and other complaints in tow, a large fraction of unhappy users are looking for other YouTube alternative websites that can offer them similar content.

In case you are one of them and are looking for different video streaming sites, here’s a list of best alternatives to YouTube in 2018.

PayPal censors journalists who criticize Israel

An operative of Israel’s global censorship campaign has admitted to exaggerating claims of anti-Semitism in order to engineer crackdowns on supporters of Palestinian rights.

In the latest instance, Benjamin Weinthal has apparently succeeded in persuading PayPal to close down the account of the French online publication Agence Media Palestine.

This constitutes censorship as it denies journalists the means to raise money for their work and retaliates against them for ideas they express.

Agence Media Palestine says it is considering legal action.

Weinthal presents his efforts as reportage for The Jerusalem Post on the actions of companies like PayPal, but what he really does is instigate crackdowns by feeding information – by his own admission distorted – about those he is targeting.

FLASHBACK - Media "Distortions"

"Our job is to give people not what they want, but what we decide they ought to have."
-- Richard Salent, Former President CBS News.

"News is what someone wants to suppress. Everything else is advertising".
former NBC news President Rubin Frank

Asked to give a toast before the prestigious New York Press Club in 1880, John Swinton, the former Chief of Staff at the New York Sun, made this candid confession [it's worth noting that Swinton was called "The Dean of His Profession" by other newsmen, who admired him greatly]:

" There is no such thing, at this date of the world's history, as an
independent press. You know it and I know it. There is not one of you
who dares to write your honest opinions, and if you did, you know
beforehand that it would never appear in print. I am paid weekly for

of you are paid similar salaries for similar things, and any of you who

Censorship of Infowars Exposes Larger Problem of Silicon Valley Bias

Private companies can, of course, censor whomever they like, but the pattern of behavior from Silicon Valley toward speech in general—and continual inability to treat conservative views fairly on their extremely powerful platforms—is rightly concerning to conservatives who use those platforms.

Infowars is hardly a conservative website, but some fear that the social media “deplatforming” of its content will bleed over to other more mainstream outlets—especially right-leaning ones that don’t conform with the overwhelmingly left-wing values of the tech industry.

Given the vague and increasingly expanding use of the term “hate speech,” it’s not unreasonable to think that purging Infowars is the tip of the iceberg.

YouTube Now Adding ‘Fact Checks’ to Any Video That Questions Global Warming

After YouTube’s March announcement that it would place links to Wikipedia on videos that spur conspiracy theory to inform viewers, the video platform is now placing fact checks on any video that questions global warming.

BuzzFeed News confirmed that this was part of the company’s “ongoing effort to combat the rampant misinformation and conspirational fodder on its platform.”

Now, a little blurb from Wikipedia or Encyclopedia Britannica appears under videos that call climate change into question, ensuring that the public knows, “Multiple lines of scientific evidence show that the climate system is warming.”

Left-wing journalists CELEBRATE the complete censorship of Alex Jones, claiming the First Amendment only applies to “official” views

“Gone are the days of leftists hating on corporations and warning of a dystopian future world run by global capitalists and in are the days of leftists cheering a dystopian present where global capitalists shut down all speech they disagree with to crush a middle class revolt,” writes Chris Menahan for InformationLiberation.com.

It just goes to show that the Left is comprised of nothing more than deranged, childish, groupthink drones who are completely consumed with a “me, Me, ME!” mentality. It’s all love and tolerance, just so long as I don’t have to be offended by anyone else’s viewpoints, is basically the liberal narrative of today – hence why we’re now in a position where conservatives are being openly censored and persecuted by liberal tyrants.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The First Amendment: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Note that freedom of the press is expressed separately from freedom of speech, meaning said freedom is NOT confined to the "official" news media.

The liberals are proving themselves to be the enemies of America.

Censorship Purge Signals Imminent False Flag Violence Before Mid-Term Elections... Bigger Than 9/11?

The aggressive, unprecedented PURGE of Alex Jones / InfoWars underscores the desperation of the totalitarian deep state that’s about to make a move to eliminate President Trump and / or steal the elections.

Anyone who believes that the sudden de-platforming of Alex Jones across over a dozen online services and platforms isn’t coordinated collusion is delusional. The coordinated de-platforming effort is clearly directed by the deep state to eliminate a prominent, dissenting voice in preparation for unleashing a history-shaping false flag attack that’s likely going to be bigger than 9/11.

The radical Left is escalating its violence across America, and the tech giants are dramatically escalating their censorship actions to silence all independent voices that might question any “official” narrative.

It all points to something big about to come down - something so big that only the official narrative can be allowed to be heard or spoken.

YOUTUBE IS CENSORING SF’S NEW 1.5-HOUR LONG VIDEO “RUSSIAN MILITARY CAMPAIGN IN SYRIA 2015-2018”

YouTube is censoring SouthFront’s new 1.5-hour long video “Russian Military Campaign in Syria 2015-2018“.

This video is a detailed summary of military and political developments in Syria since the start of the Russian military operation until now. It was released by SouthFront on August 11.

Less than 2 hours after the release, this video was placed behind an age restriction because it allegedly includes “violent or graphic content that appears to be posted in a shocking, sensational, or disrespectful manner”. The age-restriction clearly impacts a possible reach of the video because it does not allow people without YouTube accounts to watch it.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

YouTube doesn't want people to know the US government lost in Syria.

Bankrupt America: Bankruptcy Soars As The Country Grapples With An Unprecedented Debt Problem

America, you officially have a debt problem, and I am not just talking about the national debt. Consumer bankruptcies are surging, corporate debt has doubled since the last financial crisis, state and local government debt loads have never been higher, and the federal government has been adding more than a trillion dollars a year to the federal debt ever since Barack Obama entered the White House. We have been on the greatest debt binge in human history, and it has enabled us to enjoy our ridiculously high standard of living for far longer than we deserved. Many of us have been sounding the alarm about our debt problem for a very long time, but now even the mainstream news is freaking out about it. I have a feeling that they just want something else to hammer President Trump over the head with, but they are actually speaking the truth when they say that we are facing an unprecedented debt crisis.

May, Hunt silent as UK's best arms customer kills dozens of children in Yemen bus attack

After a Saudi-led attack in Yemen killed and injured dozens of children, the public is again questioning London's arms sales to Riyadh. Officials have kept silent, helped by the MSM which fails to question the UK's involvement.
According to the International Committee of the Red Cross, the body count from Thursday's attack sits at 51, including 40 children. Seventy-nine others were also injured in the attack, 56 of whom were children. It is understood that the bus was bringing children home from a picnic when it was attacked.

World Remains Blind To "Ticking Time Bomb" Counting Down To War On Australia's Doorstep

Asia is at risk of descending into a region-wide crisis with global implications, a leading expert in Asia-Pacific affairs has warned.

Dr Brendan Taylor, Associate Professor at ANU Coral Bell School of Asia Pacific Affairs, argues Asia is at a dangerous crossroads in his new book The Four Flashpoints: How Asia Goes to War.

A lot is happening in the northeast. China is set to overtake the United States as the world’s dominant power over the next decade. Questions remain over Kim Jong-un’s supposed dismantling of his nuclear arsenal. Japan is building up its military power again, and regional battles for ownership of lucrative oceans are intensifying.

Dr Taylor argues there are four key “flashpoints” — politically unstable areas with the potential to erupt into sudden conflict — and all are situated within the continent.

TSA Admits 'Quiet Skies' Surveillance Program Is Useless, Promises To Continue Engaging In Useless Surveillance

More news comes from the Boston Globe about the TSA's "Quiet Skies" program. Having decided the skies were too quiet, the TSA started nominating people for surveillance based on god knows what and sent air marshals all over the US to tail "suspects" as they unsuspectingly went about their travels. Some of the targets included flight attendants and law enforcement officers. To those tasked with this futile (and likely unconstitutional) surveillance, the program is a waste of time and resources, if not a full-blown civil liberties catastrophe.

To the TSA, this previously-hidden bullshit is just some more discretion-flexing on behalf of the American public to save them from terrorists it inadvertently admitted aren't even targeting aircraft anymore. Why go through the hassle of the boarding process, smuggling precursors past half-inept, half-asleep TSA agents when you can just rent a van from Home Depot and drive it into a crowd?

"US Risks Completely Losing Turkey": Erdogan Vows To Defy US "Threats" Over Pastor Brunson

Turkey President Recep Tayyip Erdogan hit back Saturday at US "threats" over detained American pastor Brunson which has escalated tensions between the two NATO allies, sent the Turkish currency into a historic nosedive on Friday and crashed Turkish capital markets.

"It is wrong to dare bring Turkey to its knees through threats over a pastor," Erdogan lashed out during a rally in the Black Sea town of Unye.

"I am calling on those in America again. Shame on you, shame on you. You are exchanging your strategic partner in NATO for a priest."

"They are threatening us. You cannot tame our people with threats" but perhaps a collapse in the stock market will suffice: the Turkish lira crashed as much as 20% against the dollar on Friday, its biggest drop on record, after President Trump announced he would double steel and aluminium tariffs on Turkey, adding to pressure to Turkey's troubled economy. The White House has said the newly-imposed sanctions would take effect from August 13.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Yesterday, atimes.com, reported the following:

China will buy Turkey on the cheap.The article goes on to state:

"Turkey’s volatile president Recep Tayyip Erdogan might have put off the crisis, but instead decided to butt heads with US President Trump over the arrest of an American Protestant minister for alleged terrorism."

"Turkey will end up as “an economic satrapy of China,” as I predicted last November. President Erdogan in effect threw himself on the mercy of China in a barely-coherent speech earlier today.

Turkey’s economy is likely to shrink by 10% to 20% before the bleeding stops, as I predicted June 12. Erdogan’s supposed economic miracle followed the old formula of Third World kleptocracies of the past, namely massive domestic credit issuance supported by massive foreign borrowing. Turks bought foreign consumer goods with the proceeds and the country’s current account deficit swelled to 6.5% of national output. That’s close to where the Greek current account deficit stood in early 2012 when the country’s economy imploded."

Mr. President, just a question here; did you NOT understand that your economic threats were going to throw Erdogan into China's influence?!?

Because if not realizing that this would be the case, President Trump has just revealed himself to be an astonishingly ill-informed sitting President, eager to take bad advise which reinforces his view of the world, rather than asking for the uncomfortable truth, far too often.

99-Year-Old Nuremberg Prosecutor Calls Trump’s Detention of Children a ‘Crime Against Humanity: ’"What could cause more great suffering than what they did in the name of immigration law?"

The last surviving prosecutor at the Nazi Nuremberg trials just offered harsh criticism for the Trump administration’s family separation crisis resulting from its cruel immigration policies, calling it “a crime against humanity.”

Ninety-nine year old Ben Ferencz made the comments in a recent lengthy interview with United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein, which was posted online Tuesday.

When he learned of the family separations,

“it was very painful for me,” Ferencz told Zeid. “I knew the Statue of Liberty. I came under the Statue of Liberty as an immigrant.” Ferencz was a baby when his family came to the United States from Romania.

He referenced lines from Emma Lazarus’s poem inscribed at the base of the monument, including its ending: “I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

AT 99, the man can, of course, be thoroughly forgiven for choosing NOT to remember, that under both the Bush and Obama administrations, this was perfectly fine, and no one in the press even mentioned it at all.

He also chooses NOT to acknowledge that President Trump, realizing the optics of this practice, SUCKED, reversed that policy, under the guidance of the two women he loves and trusts in his life, Melania, and Ivanka, and has made every effort, as supported by the Federal Judge in the case, to reunite families since.

Saudi Arabia and Iran Woo Incoming Pakistani Prime Minister

An offer by a Saudi-backed bank to lend financially strapped Pakistan US$4 billion is likely intended to bolster Saudi influence when former international cricket player Imran Khan is sworn in in the coming week as the South Asian country’s next prime minister.

The offer was most immediately related to a statement by Asad Umar, Pakistan’s new finance minister-in-waiting, that Pakistan would decide on whether to seek a bailout from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) or friendly nations such as China and Saudi Arabia by the end of September.

Pakistan reportedly is looking to possibly ask the IMF for a US$12 billion bailout package. The country’s foreign exchange reserves have plummeted over the past year. Chinese loans have so far kept Pakistan afloat. Pakistan’s currency, the rupee, has been devalued four times since December and lost almost a quarter of its value.

Saudi Coalition Promises Investigation Into Strike on Yemen Schoolbus

The Saudi-led coalition attacking Yemen has promised that they will carry out an investigation following Thursday’s attack in the Saada Province. In the strike, Saudi warplanes attacked a schoolbus outside of a crowded marketplace, killing at least 50, mostly children.

The coalition says they are “firmly committed to investigating all claims regarding mistakes or violations of international law.” This statement was made through the Saudi press despite officials insisting on Thursday that the killings were a “legitimate military action” and perfectly legal.

Gory photos of dead children that followed, however, fueled a lot of calls from the international community to investigate the matter. UN Secretary-General Antonio Gutterres condemned the strike and urged an “independent and prompt investigation.” The Houthis, who control northern Yemen, backed the call.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This just makes me sick to my stomach.

IF the Saudis are the only ones allegedly "investigating" this massacre, the conclusion will be that all the alleged "children" who were murdered, or maimed, for life, were actually, genetically, very small Houthi rebels, disguised as children, who they had the absolute right to murder on this school bus.

Just wait for it: I am betting that what I have just stated, won't be very far from the Saudi conclusions on this slaughter.

WESTERN EUROPE: Dutch politician commits suicide after revealing she was ‘gang raped by Muslims’

Willie Dille, city councillor in The Hague and member of the anti-immigrant Freedom Party, has taken her own life on Wednesday. She had just posted a video on Facebook describing her gang-rape as being part of an intimidation campaign over a year ago.

Mrs. Dillie was an MP for the anti-immigrant Freedom Party from 2010-2012 before returning to her seat on The Hague city council. Geert Wilders, the party’s leader, is an outspoken critic of Islam.

Local Freedom Party leader, Karen Gerbrands said, Dille “could no longer bear what had happened to her and the reactions she had had”, when confirming the suicide.

In the video, she stated how the gang demanded her silence during council debates and had recently had her life threatened and that “we will soon cut your throat and let you bleed to death.”

FACEBOOK TEAMS UP WITH NATO TO CENSOR NEWS (VIDEO)

A new Reuters report confirms that social media censorship is taking a chilling geopolitical effect, as Facebook has been revealed as a top donor to the Atlantic Council, alongside Western governments, Gulf autocratic regimes, NATO, various branches of the US military, and a number of major defense contractors and corporations.

In May Facebook announced that it was outsourcing much of its political “fact-checking” to the Atlantic Council, the PR arm of NATO, and more specifically, four individuals within the Atlantic Council will form a “Digital Forensic Lab (DFR Lab)” so as to help the billion dollar tech giant spot those pesky Russian election meddling trolls…because God knows, Facebook simply does not have the money or know-how to hire its own team of “fact checkers”, something that a publisher platform of Facebook’s size would naturally do in house as it formulates its editorial position.

Yet another compelling set of reasons to make "Facebook"... irrelevant, by not using it again, ever.

BIG TECH COLLUDED WITH POWER ELITE AT 2013 BILDERBERG MEETING; RE-CAST AS “GOOGLE-BERG”

Big Tech has been in bed with the power structure for years. It should come as no surprise that the major tech companies would act in the globalists favor.

Preceding the crackdown on alternative media like Alex Jones infowars, Bilderberg discussed big tech’s narrative of a “post truth” world during this year’s annual meeting in Turin, Italy.

In 2013, the secretive Bilderberg group met in Watford, U.K. at the Grove Hotel. Google, the big tech kingpin, was present.

Infowars covered the meeting, and as usual had sources inside.

As Paul Joseph Watson reported,

“Put simply, Bilderberg is merging with Google under the stewardship of Google CEO Eric Schmidt, a regular Bilderberg attendee. Google’s annual Zeitgeist conference, which has been based at the Grove since 2007, immediately precedes the Bilderberg Group conference by a matter of days.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Thank you, I have utterly no appetite for being force-fed government agendas through my computer screen, and continue to want the true ability to determine what I should read, see, or not read, or see.

Google has become one of the most evil manifestations of an anti-Constitutional/ anti Bill of Rights electronic monster which has ever been created, and deserves, simply and peacefully, the fate it has imposed on its, and the deep states, alleged "enemies" (like WRH): total electronic shunning, period, end of discussion.

Think about it: if you don't use or post on their platforms, they cannot algorithmically consign you "to the back of the digital bus."

Find the alternatives, and start using them today!!

The words "indispensable" and "Google", no longer have an ongoing relationship.

UN PUTS COST OF SYRIAN WAR DESTRUCTION AT NEARLY $400 BILLION

A group of United Nations experts have produced a figure which puts a price tag on seven years of war in Syria in terms of overall destruction to the country: nearly $400 billion.

The UN just concluded a two day meeting of over 50 Syrian and international experts in Lebanon who met under the aegis of the Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA).

According to the AFP, the group of economic analysts concluded that the "volume of destruction in physical capital and its sectoral distribution" is estimated at more than $388 billion (334 billion euros).

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And of course, the US government takes absolutely zero responsibility for the carnage it has caused here, by arming, funding, and training Syrian "rebels", aka ISIS.

NEOCONS HYPE THREAT OF “IRANIAN HACKERS” TO JUSTIFY PREEMPTIVE “COUNTERATTACK”

Several reports in both American and Israeli media have recently been circulating the claim that Iran is increasingly likely to respond to draconian U.S.-imposed sanctions by conducting “cyberattacks” against the United States. According to this narrative, “Iranian hackers have laid the groundwork to carry out extensive cyberattacks on U.S. and European infrastructure and on private companies,” prompting the U.S. to consider launching a preemptive “counterattack” in response.

Quoting anonymous U.S. government officials, think tanks and “experts,” these articles assert that the sanctions the U.S. re-imposed on Iran this Tuesday are “likely to push that country to intensify state-sponsored cyber-threat activities,” activities that one expert called “the most consequential, costly and aggressive in the history of the internet, more so than Russia.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Israel has been trying to goad both the US and Saudi Arabia in a potentially brutal attack against Iran, in the name of "regime change" in this country, and they are thoroughly frustrated that all their collective propaganda in this area, cannot seem to get the American people, now war-weary, and very war skeptical, after 17 years of America's failures in places like Afghanistan; Somalia; Iraq; and Libya, on it s"Bomb, Bomb Iran" War Train.

And I find it ironic, in looking at the region, that those who so deeply advocate war against Iran, are those countries in desperate need of regime change themselves.

Let's start with Israel, with its current and its painfully corrupt Prime Minister Netanyahu, who must always keep Israel's citizens in a psychological attitude of fear, and dread, against both the Palestinians, and against all their neighbors, who, it is said, want to kill them all, and create a 2nd holocaust.

Never mind that Israel appears pathologically incapable of getting along with its neighbors, and is always advocating regime change; never mind that it is constantly trying to figure out how to assassinate more Palestinians, and get away with it without the world noticing.

Then, let's shift to Prince Mohammed bin Salman, Saudi Arabia's thoroughly embarrassing 21st century autocratic ruler, and the current Butcher of Yemen, who the United States is assisting militarily in Saudi War Crimes in Yemen.

Let's take a look at what the "good Prince" has caused to happen in Yemen, shall we?!? Warning: graphic images.

Starvation and disease (possibly weaponised cholera) are running rampant in Yemen, courtesy of joint US/Saudi bombing of the Yemeni ports, so food cannot get in.

And please do not forget that Prince Salman, one of President Trump's BFFs in the Middle East, has ordered the use of depleted uranium weapons in Yemen:

Saudis using depleted uranium weapons in Yemen

And the use of these DU weapons in Yemen, is having the same effect as they had in Iraq, both on Iraqis... and American military professionals, who discovered to their horror, that their children were born, just as maimed and deformed, as were their Iraqi counterparts.

Images: Yemeni children born with massive deformities due to their parents' exposure to DU

So to our very own Merchant of Death in Chief, President Trump, who has authorized the sale of billions of dollars of weapons to Saudi Arabia, and to His Highness, the Butcher of Yemen, AKA Prince bin Salman, , all I have for you both is the polite, reiteration of two profoundly insightful sayings.

The first by the late US President John F. Kennedy, who said: "When peaceful revolution is impossible, violent revolution is inevitable."

And the second, by philosopher George Santayana, observes: ""Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.".

Just some food for thought, gentlemen.

APPEALS COURT: NO IMMUNITY FOR SHOOTING INNOCENT PEOPLE 15 TIMES

Two Los Angeles Sheriff's Department deputies are hearing -- for the fourth time -- they'll be personally responsible for a string of Constitutional violations resulting in them filling two innocent people with bullets. At this point, the officers have lost at the district level, the Appeals Court, got a partial remand (but no grant of immunity) from the Supreme Court, and are back in front of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals losing again.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

To the LAPD: NO MEANS NO.

440 INJURED IN CLASHES BETWEEN ANTI-GOVERNMENT PROTESTERS & RIOT POLICE IN ROMANIA (PHOTOS)

Hundreds of people have been injured after a massive anti-corruption rally in Bucharest, spearheaded by expats calling on the government to resign, turned violent, forcing riot police to use water cannons and tear gas.
Bucharest’s Victoriei Square became a scene of violent clashes with police warning the protesters in advance that they would not tolerate disorder. Despite the warnings, several groups of protesters calling for the resignation of the Social Democrat Party-led government tried to break through a security line. Police responded by firing tear gas and deployed water cannons against the crowd.

Webmaster's Commentary:

WATCH: COPS SET UP "BAIT TRUCK" IN LOW-INCOME NEIGHBORHOOD TO ENTRAP POOR PEOPLE IN TO STEALING

Police in Chicago have recently come under criticism for setting up a “bait truck” in a low income area with the intent of enticing people to steal from it. The truck was left wide open with expensive goods like brand new shoes and appeared to be unsupervised. But there were police watching just out of view, waiting to catch anyone who might give into the temptation.

Alderman Roderick Sawyer, 6th chair of the City Council’s Black Caucus, pointed out that police in the city have more important things to do than target low income neighborhoods with traps.

“This bait truck operation is an unacceptable and inappropriate use of police resources. In a moment where police capacity is clearly under extreme strain, these sort of tactics are the last thing we should be spending manpower and energy on,” Sawyer said.

The operation was exposed by local activist Charles Mckenzie who recorded one of the arrests and posted it to his Facebook page.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is police "entrapment/catch/release", writ large, and it is deplorable.

RUSSIA HYSTERIA GAVE US SOCIAL MEDIA CENSORSHIP (VIDEO)

It started with Hillary Clinton floating out the big lie, that 17 US intelligence agencies are “confident” that Russia hacked DNC servers and John Podesta email accounts, in a Kremlin plot to elect Donald Trump as President of the United States.

Fast forward two years later and witness Silicon Valley tech giants colluding in a span of 12 hours to de-platform Infowars and Alex Jones.

These are not isolated incidences. The one gave us the other.

The Deep State’s chosen candidate, Hillary Clinton, lost to the ultimate outsider, Donald Trump. All eyes, and all lies, turned to the perennial scapegoat Russia.

This time the elitist plan was more sinister than ever. Why let a good lie like ‘Russia election meddling’ go to waste?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Right now, Russia.... is not my enemy; my enemy is the American Deep State, and its enablers, let us say, the 4th Estate writ large, in that unholy triumverate of Facebook, Twitter, and Youtube, which want to forbid me from choosing what I want to read, through algorithmically crushing down any dissenting opinion that steers too far from the US government's official narrative.

IN SHOCKING UN ACCUSATION, CHINA SAID TO HOLD 1 MILLION UIGHUR MUSLIMS IN "MASSIVE INTERNMENT CAMPS"

A breaking report based on findings of a United Nations human rights panel accuses China of holding up to one million ethnic Uighurs in what the report says resembles a “massive internment camp that is shrouded in secrecy”.

The minority ethno-religious group concentrated in the western Chinese province of Xinjiang has found itself under increased persecution and oversight by Chinese authorities of late as their collective Sunni Islamic identity and separatist political movements have resulted in historic tensions with the Communist government.

Most notable is the ethnic Uighur-founded and led East Turkistan Islamic Movement (ETIM, also commonly called the Turkestan Islamic Party, or TIP), a Muslim separatist group based Xinjiang known to have conducted dozens of terror attacks in Chinese cities like Shanghai and Yunnan, but also in places like Afghanistan, and as far as Syria, where it's believed up to 5,000 Uighurs fight alongside al-Qaeda.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What I find interesting about the timing of the release of this UN report, is the reality that the US has brought down even more economic sanctions against China as of last month. First Section 301 Trade Tariffs against China on 6 July: second list of tariff lines introduced for review.

One can view the timing of this report in one of two ways, but I think a middle ground perspective is most useful.

It is difficult for any culture, or country, to have a prominent ethnic minority which will not assimilate to the primary culture's norms, to the point of creating violence against that primary culture, as we are seeing with middle Eastern and African immigrants coming to Europe. But this has been a highly fraught confrontation between Beijing and the Uighurs for quite some time now, so this is really nothing new, despite the breathtaking prose here.

But the timing of the release of the report, even though these "camps" may have existed for some time, in an attempt to stop violence against the dominant Chinese culture, may well be an attempt at demonisation against it, in light of both trade and military tensions between the US and China,, which do not appear to be de-escalating any time soon.

Acclaimed Venezuelan News Site Latest Victim in Facebook Censorship Spree

Facebook has removed the page of yet another media outlet. This time, it’s not a far right fringe network like Infowars, but “Venezuela's only independent, grassroots leftwing English media platform,” the outlet, Venezuela Analysis, noted on Twitter.

Publishers for the news outlet were informed by Facebook on Thursday that their page had been "unpublished" due to "recent activity" that "doesn't follow the Facebook Pages Terms." When a Facebook page is unpublished, it becomes no longer viewable to the public, only to the administrators. Venezuela Analysis will have the option to appeal the decision.

It isn't clear what specific activity prompted the move.

The outlet called it a "naked attempt to block our grassroots coverage of the on-the-ground situation in Venezuela. Need more evidence that [Facebook] is arm of corporate [mainstream media] censoring alternative voices?"

The Bizarre Facebook Path To Corporate Fascism

Facebook has assumed additional political police powers, disrupting a planned counter-demonstration against white supremacists, set for August 12th in Washington, on the grounds that it was initiated and inspired by “Russians” as part of a Kremlin campaign to “sow dissention” in the U.S.

The Facebook intervention is a qualitative escalation of the McCarthyite offensive launched by the Democrat Party and elements of the national security state, and backed by most of the corporate media, initially to blame Hillary Clinton’s 2016 defeat on “collusion” between Wikileaks, “the Russians” and the Trump campaign to steal and publicize embarrassing Clinton campaign emails.

EMERGENCY EXCLUSIVE: Democrats / Deep State Close To Taking Down Infowars

Aug 10 09:41

George Orwell’s unpublished introduction to Animal Farm “The Freedom of the Press” (1943) shows a world flipped upside down, but somehow, exactly the same.

Unpopular ideas can be silenced, and inconvenient facts kept dark, without the need for any official ban. Anyone who has lived long in a foreign country will know of instances of sensational items of news—things which on their own merits would get the big headlines—being kept right out of the British press, not because the Government intervened but because of a general tacit agreement that ‘it wouldn’t do’ to mention that particular fact. So far as the daily newspapers go, this is easy to understand. The British press is extremely centralised, and most of it is owned by wealthy men who have every motive to be dishonest on certain important topics. But the same kind of veiled censorship also operates in books and periodicals, as well as in plays, films and radio. At any given moment there is an orthodoxy, a body of ideas which it is assumed that all right-thinking people will accept without question.

I Was Banned for Life From Twitter

The government remains a real threat to free speech. But there is another menace now: corporate censorship, often dressed up in NewSpeak terms like “deplatforming,” restricting “hate speech” and “fake news,” and “terms of service.” This isn’t entirely new: corporations have always done as they please with speech. Our protection against corporate overreach used to rely on an idea Americans once held dear, best expressed as “I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend your right to say it.” This ethos was core to our democracy: everyone supports the right of others to throw their ideas into the marketplace, where an informed people push bad ideas away with good ones. That system more or less worked for 240 years.

Confirmed: US government spies on federal staffers

Several federal agencies have purchased an advanced software application that allows administrators to see every single action, item, mouse click and more performed on their employees’ computers. Some say it’s being implemented to end whistleblowing.

In the midst of a witch-hunt that has targeted anyone accused of leaking documents, the US federal government has been linked to a massive acquisition of spyware that allows the higher ups to get ahold of essentially any communiqué and comment made by its employees on any electronic device. Some agents with the Food and Drug Administration insist that their personal conversations were unlawfully monitored by their higher-ups using the program, citing their superiors’ fears that whistleblowers will continue to come to lawmakers to voice concern over dangerous practices within the FDA.

THE ROTHSCHILDS WANT IRAN’S BANKS

Could gaining control of the Central Bank of the Islamic Republic of Iran (CBI) be one of the main reasons that Iran is being targeted by Western and Israeli powers? As tensions are building up for an unthinkable war with Iran, it is worth exploring Iran’s banking system compared to its U.S., British and Israeli counterparts.

Some researchers are pointing out that Iran is one of only three countries left in the world whose central bank is not under Rothschild control. Before 9-11 there were reportedly seven: Afghanistan, Iraq, Sudan, Libya, Cuba, North Korea, and Iran. By 2003, however, Afghanistan and Iraq were swallowed up by the Rothschild octopus, and by 2011 Sudan and Libya were also gone. In Libya, a Rothschild bank was established in Benghazi while the country was still at war.

Challenging the Lords of the Internet

If you’re paying attention, you’ve probably already heard about the banning from Twitter of anti-interventionist author and former US diplomat Peter van Buren, a whistleblower whose book on the Iraq war exposed the lies at the heart of that devilish enterprise. When van Buren tweeted that his tenure at the State Department required him to lie to reporters, and that the paladins of the Fourth Estate were all too ready to passively record these lies as truth, the Twitter brouhaha took on seismic proportions. Several journalists were involved, attacking van Buren for showing them up, and one – Jonathan M. Katz, supposedly a New York Times writer – reported van Buren to the Twitter Authorities for allegedly threatening “violence.” Van Buren did no such thing: it was a mere pretext to get him banned. And ban him they did – for life. His account was scrubbed: years of informative tweets were erased.

Iraq to Stop Trading With Iran in US Dollars Due to Sanctions - Gov't Spokesman

Iraq will have to stop using the US dollar in its financial transactions with Iran over Washington's sanctions against Tehran, Iraqi government spokesman Saad al-Hadithi told Sputnik on Thursday.

"The sanctions will influence, first of all, money transfers and banking operations in the US dollar. The sides will not use the US dollar," al-Hadithi said, adding that the move would result in a decline in trade between the two countries and thus affect the consumers.

He stressed that the Iraqi government would try to find " a new mechanism" in order to support trade relations with Iran.

"In any case, the government will seek to solve all the problems related to this issue, it will look for corresponding mechanisms to neutralize the [sanctions'] influence on the Iraqi market and also prevent the damage caused to the Iraqi citizens' interests," al-Hadithi said.

Webmaster's Commentary:

"Step Back From The Brink" UN Warns As Major War Looms After Overnight Gaza Airstrikes

In the third serious flare-up of violence in the last month, a major escalation began between Israel and Hamas militants in Gaza overnight, which involved approximately 180 projectiles fired towards Israeli territory, and more than 150 Israeli airstrikes on targets inside Gaza, according to statements by the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF).

Reports citing Israeli sources say of about 180 projectiles launched from Gaza overnight, the Iron Dome defense system intercepted over 30, while most hit open fields. However, official statements also noted strikes on playgrounds, houses, cars, and factories.

The BBC reports up to seven Israeli civilians wounded by the rocket and mortar fire, with Palestinian health officials confirming the death of a pregnant Palestinian woman and a toddler. The AFP identified the victims as 23-year old Enas Khammash and her 18-month-old daughter Bayan, killed in the Jafarawi area of central Gaza.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Israel wants this war, and it wants it now; Palestine is to be completely obliterated, and the formerly recognized Palestinians lands completely claimed by the settlers.

The problem facing Israel, is that it cannot control this war, and how far, or how rapidly it will spread.

It has the all the earmarks, right now, of a becoming a larger ranging regional war, with Israel, the US, Saudi Arabia, NATO on one side, and Iran, Russia, China, and Lebanon on the other.

I hope I am dreadfully wrong on this, but I think Israel believes that the timing is right for it to go in and kill as many Palestinians as is humanly possible.

Lord Rothschild: The New World Order Is At Risk

Over the past three years, an unexpected voice of caution has emerged from one of the most legendary families in finance: Lord Jacob Rothschild.

Readers may recall that as part of the RIT Capital Partners 2014 annual report commentary, the scion of Rothschild family warned that "the geopolitical situation is most dangerous since WWII." One year later, Jacob Rothschild again warned about the outcome of "what is surely the greatest experiment in monetary policy in the history of the world", and then again in August 2017 he cautioned that "share prices have in many cases risen to unprecedented levels at a time when economic growth is by no means assured."

Little did he know that they were only going to keep rising, but related to that, he also made another warning which the market has so far blissfully ignored:

The period of monetary accommodation may well be coming to an end. Geopolitical problems remain widespread and are proving increasingly difficult to resolve.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The global monetary system is in peril because people like Lord Rothschild have played with the system, so that it benefits the very few, rather than the many; and that the fundamentals of that have to be fixed.

Facebook teams up with NATO to censor news

A new Reuters report confirms that social media censorship is taking a chilling geopolitical effect, as Facebook has been revealed as a top donor to the Atlantic Council, alongside Western governments, Gulf autocratic regimes, NATO, various branches of the US military, and a number of major defense contractors and corporations.

In May Facebook announced that it was outsourcing much of its political “fact-checking” to the Atlantic Council, the PR arm of NATO, and more specifically, four individuals within the Atlantic Council will form a “Digital Forensic Lab (DFR Lab)” so as to help the billion dollar tech giant spot those pesky Russian election meddling trolls…because God knows, Facebook simply does not have the money or know-how to hire its own team of “fact checkers”, something that a publisher platform of Facebook’s size would naturally do in house as it formulates its editorial position.

It’s not a ‘defense’ of Alex Jones to argue that we’re on a slippery slope of internet censorship

The celebration on the Left at the quick-fire purge of Alex Jones and InfoWars from social media has been disturbing — not because Jones’ views deserve to be defended, but because his banning is a warning shot against dissent.

It’s important to note at the outset that I have no love for Jones whatsoever — lest this be read as some kind of endorsement or defense of InfoWars. It is not.

When you hound the parents of dead children and promote the theory that inter-dimensional “lizard people” are secretly running the world, you relinquish the right to be taken seriously by a lot of people.

But this is not about Alex Jones or what he believes. It is about the fact that the Left has willfully decided that massive corporations, working hand-in-glove with government agencies, as we know they do, should be the arbiters of truth and should hold the power to decide what we see, hear, read and believe.

Charter Cable Doesn't Want You to See This Political Campaign Ad

It’s not surprising that a cable company wouldn’t want to run an ad that criticizes it. But telecom giants choosing to censor ads they don’t like—as with a recent campaign ad that Charter refused to air—sets a disturbing precedent. It makes these companies as gatekeepers of election information, and in a post-net neutrality world could pave the way to giving Big Telecom a dystopian authority to dictate which political messages voters receive.

The ad in question is a 30 second spot from New York Democratic Congressional candidate Anthony Brindisi, a New York state representative.

“If you’re watching this ad on Spectrum cable, you’re getting ripped off,” Brindisi says while staring into the camera. “Spectrum has jacked up rates almost double. It’s why I fought to have the state take legal action against Spectrum. Congress needs to go after them, too.”

Americans! Read This Urgent Warning From Dr. James Dobson

What the professor told us remains in my memory today. He said the Nazi success was made possible by one primary factor. It was their complete and utter control of the means of communication. There was no internet or television at that time, of course, but what did exist reached every dimension of the nation. Radio was highly effective in those days, as were newspapers, films, speeches, books and magazines, posters, rallies and yes, public schools and universities. Every word spoken in Germany was scrutinized, and those who rejected Nazi lies publicly were often murdered or sent to concentration camps, from which most didn't return. Terror was the stock-in-trade of the Gestapo. It was a common occurrence for secret police to knock on the doors of anyone who didn't conform to the party line. An offender would be dragged outside and shot, leaving terrifying images and warnings for the neighbors to see. It told them what would happen if they also got out of line.

Twitter Suspends Peter Van Buren Forever

Some readers are aware I have been permanently suspended from Twitter as @wemeantwell.

This followed exchanges with several mainstream journalists over their support for America’s wars and unwillingness to challenge the lies of government. After two days of silence, Twitter sent me an auto-response saying what I wrote “harasses, intimidates, or uses fear to silence someone else’s voice.”

I don’t think I did any of that, and I wish you didn’t have to accept my word on it. I wish instead you could read what I wrote and decide for yourself. But Twitter won’t allow that. Twitter says you cannot read and make up your own mind. They have in fact eliminated all the things I have ever written there over seven years, disappeared me down the Memory Hole. That’s what censorship does; it takes the power to decide what is right and wrong away from you and gives it to someone else.

Apple, Google, Youtube, Facebook, Twitter Subvert the US Constitution, Free Speech, and American Liberty

The coordinated attack on widely watched Info Wars host Alex Jones by Apple, Facebook, Google/Youtube, and Spotify is all the proof that we need that the total failure to enforce America’s anti-trust laws has produced unaccountably powerful firms that are able to exercise far more censorship, not only in America but also abroad among Washington’s vassal states, than the Nazi Gestapo or Stalin’s NKVD were ever able to achieve.

Recently the progressive Rob Kall and I discussed on his show the implications of a trillion dollar company, which Apple now is. A day or two afterward, Rob Kall wrote an article on his website OpEdNews in which he made a case that a trillion dollar company had too much power for our continuation as a free people. I agree with him. Only 16 countries out of 195 countries in the world, a mere 0.08 percent, have a GDP equal to or larger than one trillion dollars.

Institutionalizing Intolerance: Bullies Win, Freedom Suffers When We Can’t Agree to Disagree

As America has become ever more polarized, and those polarized factions have become more militant and less inclined to listen to—or even allow for the existence of—other viewpoints, we are fast becoming a nation of people who just can’t get along.

Here’s the thing: if Americans don’t learn how to get along—at the very least, agreeing to disagree and respecting each other’s right to subscribe to beliefs and opinions that may be offensive, hateful, intolerant or merely different—then we’re going to soon find that we have no rights whatsoever (to speak, assemble, agree, disagree, protest, opt in, opt out, or forge our own paths as individuals).

In such an environment, when we can’t agree to disagree, the bullies (on both sides) win and freedom suffers.

Intolerance, once the domain of the politically correct and self-righteous, has been institutionalized, normalized and politicized.

FLASHBACK - Facebook Says It Is Deleting Accounts at the Direction of the U.S. and Israeli Governments

IN SEPTEMBER OF last year, we noted that Facebook representatives were meeting with the Israeli government to determine which Facebook accounts of Palestinians should be deleted on the ground that they constituted “incitement.” The meetings — called for and presided over by one of the most extremist and authoritarian Israeli officials, pro-settlement Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked — came after Israel threatened Facebook that its failure to voluntarily comply with Israeli deletion orders would result in the enactment of laws requiring Facebook to do so, upon pain of being severely fined or even blocked in the country.

Taibbi: Beware the Slippery Slope of Facebook Censorship

Similar? What does “similar” mean?

The death-pit for civil liberties is usually found in a combination of fringe/unpopular people or ideas and a national security emergency.

This is where we are with this unsettling new confab of Facebook, Congress and the Trump administration.

Bankrupt America: Bankruptcy Soars As The Country Grapples With An Unprecedented Debt Problem

America, you officially have a debt problem, and I am not just talking about the national debt. Consumer bankruptcies are surging, corporate debt has doubled since the last financial crisis, state and local government debt loads have never been higher, and the federal government has been adding more than a trillion dollars a year to the federal debt ever since Barack Obama entered the White House. We have been on the greatest debt binge in human history, and it has enabled us to enjoy our ridiculously high standard of living for far longer than we deserved. Many of us have been sounding the alarm about our debt problem for a very long time, but now even the mainstream news is freaking out about it. I have a feeling that they just want something else to hammer President Trump over the head with, but they are actually speaking the truth when they say that we are facing an unprecedented debt crisis.

Jordan Sather’s 17-minute briefing on QAnon:

45,000 sealed federal criminal indictments, Congressperson McKinney’s 15-minute brief on Deep/Rogue State

From November 2017 until the end of July 2018, 45,468 sealed federal indictments are entered and waiting to be unsealed:

With my documentation of the progression of these sealed indictments, possible meanings, and analysis here, please consider 6-term Congressperson and Green Party Presidential candidate Cynthia McKinney’s 15 minutes to explain who and what the Deep State is from her June 2018 Red Pill Expo talk (excludes 3 minutes of introductory remarks):

Documentation of Cynthia’s factual claims:

Some of Cynthia’s facts I’m fully confident to document as objectively accurate and independently verifiable for anyone caring to look:

Cops Called To Take Down A Kid’s Lending Library

It’s a good thing police showed up to scare the freedoms away when they did. By the time they broke up the scene, a few neighborhood kids and a teacher had already benefited by relaxing with a book. Talk about total anarchy.

Institutionalizing Intolerance: Bullies Win, Freedom Suffers When We Can’t Agree to Disagree

Intolerance, once the domain of the politically correct and self-righteous, has been institutionalized, normalized and politicized. Even those who dare to defend speech that may be unpopular or hateful as a constitutional right are now accused of “weaponizing the First Amendment.”

The Social Media Purge

The state and its cronyist friends have built a world that seeks to silence our perspectives. We must recognize that arguments and content mean nothing if conduits for disseminating them are shut down.

The Deep State Intends To Destroy Alex Jones—Don’t Let Them

Fabricated, unwarranted lawsuits are being used in an effort to shut down Alex Jones who raises too many issues that those who rule us do not want raised. At times Alex can be over the top, but overall he has spread a lot of awareness of events that otherwise would have received no notice.

There is no doubt whatsoever of William Binney’s expertise and integrity. This hour long interview with him is posted on Info Wars, not on CNN, BBC, MSNBC, NPR, or Fox News. It is not printed in the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times or the Washington Post.

COPS GO TO WRONG HOUSE, KILL INNOCENT MAN, RECEIVE A FREE PASS FROM LOCAL GRAND JURY

The PD refused to release the name of the officer to the family. The city refused to apologize or offer to fix the damage caused by officers when they raided the wrong house during a domestic assault call. The autopsy report on Lopez took a year to complete and was, at best, lousy: three pages, minimally-detailed, when most autopsy reports run at least 10 pages. (Even the prosecutor who failed to get an indictment seemed underwhelmed by the report: "There's nothing in it, honestly.")

WikiLeaks?: Twitter kills off US State Department / Iraq war whistleblower Peter Van Buren and the seven year record of his tweets.

Some readers are aware I have been permanently suspended from Twitter as @wemeantwell.

This followed exchanges with several mainstream journalists over their support for America’s wars and unwillingness to challenge the lies of government. After two days of silence, Twitter sent me an auto-response saying what I wrote “harasses, intimidates, or uses fear to silence someone else’s voice.”

I don’t think I did any of that, and I wish you didn’t have to accept my word on it. I wish instead you could read what I wrote and decide for yourself. But Twitter won’t allow that. Twitter says you cannot read and make up your own mind. They have in fact eliminated all the things I have ever written there over seven years, disappeared me down the Memory Hole. That’s what censorship does; it takes the power to decide what is right and wrong away from you and gives it to someone else.
