President Trump May Declassify the 20 FISA Docs Congress Wants

President Trump is expected to declassify the redacted 20 pages of documents from the controversial Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant that have still not been made public, which allowed the FBI to spy on short-term campaign volunteer Carter Page, numerous sources told SaraACarter.com. This comes after nearly a year of stonewalling by the Department of Justice at the demand of lawmakers, who claim that the 20 redacted pages will reveal explosive information about the FBI’s handling of the Trump-Russia investigation, according to sources.

However, President Trump, who has been under pressure from some DOJ officials not to release the classified documents, “could always change his mind and it’s not a guarantee that it will happen, but the indications are that it more than likely will possibly be before the end of this week,” said a U.S. official, who spoke on condition of anonymity due to the sensitive nature of the subject.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF these documents are released, they will most likely document that the FBI lied to get the FISA warrant.

And IF in fact that is true, it presents a very thoroughly ugly picture of the current state of the politicization of the FBI.

SHOCK PHOTOS: KAVANAUGH 'PROTESTERS' CAUGHT GETTING PAID HARD CASH

Yesterday, Linda Sarsour who had once called for a “jihad” in the USA, who also represents the Women’s March stormed into the confirmation hearing of Judge Brett Kavanaugh. Herself, along with seventy others as confirmed earlier this morning by Sen. Chuck Grassley were arrested.

This is the same Linda Sarsour who is instructing voters to #JustDoIt and vote Democrat regardless if they like the candidates or not. Sarsour made that clear in the video below.

A YEAR AFTER CALLING IDLIB “AL QAEDA'S LARGEST SAFE HAVEN SINCE 9/11,” THE US GOVT IS TRYING TO SAVE IT

As the Syrian government and its allies prepare to begin a military offensive against the last rebel-held province in the country, top U.S. government officials and even U.S. President Donald Trump have recently urged Syria to refrain from “recklessly” attacking the Idlib province, warning that it could result in a high civilian death toll. These recent statements of U.S. government officials have sought to portray Idlib as chiefly populated by civilians and benign opposition “rebels.”

Yet, just last year, one of the U.S. government’s top counterterrorism officials involved in the country’s Syria and Iraq policy stated on video that, in contrast to current government statements, Idlib is dominated by none other than the Al Qaeda terrorist group and that the province should be a major focus of U.S. counterterrorism policy given the threat that Idlib represents to global efforts to fight terrorism.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation: the US government doesn't want the combined forces of Russia, Syria, and Iran, to gut Idlib of terrorists, because it is the US government which is funding, arming, and supporting those terrorists as a "base" from which the US can reach out, and destroy more of Syria, even when time and logic have proved this a thankless task in all the years in which Syria has been at war, a war essentially designed and operated by US-funded interests.

The way the term "chemical attack" is being bandied about by our UN Ambassador, Nikki Haley, is a clear telegraphing of what US interests, most probably the White Helmets, and their ilk are going to do so, by creating such a false image of a chemical attack, most probably against children, staged as the "justification" for US troops going into Syria to attack it.

44 PERCENT OF AMERICANS 18-27 HAVE DELETED THE FACEBOOK APP THIS YEAR, POLL FINDS

Many Americans have responded to Facebook’s ongoing privacy and disinformation controversies by reducing their usage of the social media platform. Others have responded by deleting the Facebook app entirely, a new study insists.

According to a new study by the Pew Research Center, 54 percent of Facebook users ages 18 and older have adjusted their privacy settings in the wake of revelations that Facebook repeatedly failed to protect consumer data as it was shared and abused by a myriad of Facebook partners, including political analytics firm Cambridge Analytica.

The study also notes that around 42 percent of Facebook users have chosen to take a break from the social platform of several weeks or more, with a quarter of users choosing to delete the Facebook app from their phones entirely in the last year.

AMAZON IS FAR MORE DANGEROUS AND POWERFUL THAN YOU WANT TO ADMIT

The sneaky thing about Amazon’s increased dominance in so many key aspects of our lives is that much of the perniciousness is hidden. No one’s going to tell you about all the retailers who have gotten pressured or destroyed via its tactics while you’re happily clicking “add to cart” and smiling about 2-day free shipping. In this sense, it can be best compared to the evils of factory farming. Most people just simply have no idea about the immense damage going on behind the scenes as they indulge in incredible convenience and what looks like a good deal.

Today’s post should be seen as an update to last year’s article referenced above. In the months that have followed, I’ve been consistently frustrated by the lack of interest when it comes to the dangers presented by Amazon and its richest man in the world ($165 billion as of last count) CEO Jeff Bezos. The following Twitter exchange is a good example of what I mean:

EU ENTERS “FINAL STAGE” OF CRAFTING BILL FORCING BIG TECH CENSORSHIP

The European Union is in the final stages of crafting legislation that will force big tech and internet companies to censor “extremist” content and cooperate with law enforcement, Reuters reports.

The bill is expected to be released by the end of the month and will absolutely require companies such as Google, Facebook, and Twitter to swiftly remove any content considered terroristic from their platforms.

In March, the European Commission told such companies that they had three months to show they were removing “extremist” content more rapidly or face legislation forcing them to do so.

EU recommendations were sent out at the time regarding the speedy removal of all content including terrorist content, incitement to hatred and violence, child sexual abuse material, counterfeit products, and copyright infringement.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What concerns me, in this draconian move, is the proclivity for going after sites (like this one) which are fact centric, even though those facts may not be to the EU's liking.

US dollar is Washington’s pressure lever to punish countries – Lavrov

The United States is manipulating its currency, the dollar, and uses it as a tool to exert pressure when it wants to punish someone, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said.

In an interview with Russian Channel One, he said that “Washington immediately stops servicing any banking operations in dollars in relation to both the country that they want to punish and any countries that continue relations with it.”

He added that “for decades, everyone hoped that the United States would scrupulously fulfill its duties as the issuer of the world’s main reserve currency.”

Report on IDF funding Syrian rebels pulled on request of ‘army's censor' - Jerusalem Post to RT

IDF has forced the Jerusalem Post to remove its explosive report on the Israeli military giving weapons to the Syrian rebels, the newspaper’s managing editor confirmed to RT.

“We were told by the army’s military censor to remove that part of the story,” David Brinn, the managing editor of the Jerusalem Post told RT as he replied to a request for comment. The report, ‘IDF confirms: Israel provided light-weapons to Syrian rebels,’ which claimed that the Israeli military acknowledged for the first time that it had provided money, weapons and ammunition to the Syrian militants, was removed just hours after being published without any explanation.

10 Years Later – No Lessons Learned

While central bankers have more than tripled their balance sheets and funneled the fantasy bucks to Wall Street banks and mega-corporations, virtually none of it trickled down to Main Street. The only trickle is the piss running down our backs from the ruling elite. The massive debt creation has been nothing more than a last-ditch effort to prop up the crumbling financial/political paradigm. The current state of affairs is unsustainable. It is failing. And it will fail. This turkey will ultimately hit the ground like a wet sack of cement.

Welcome to Compliance 101: the police state’s primer in how to churn out compliant citizens and transform the nation’s school’s into quasi-prisons through the use of surveillance cameras, metal detectors, police patrols, zero tolerance policies, lock downs, drug sniffing dogs, strip searches and active shooter drills. -- If you were wondering, these police state tactics have not made the schools any safer. -- Rather, they’ve turned the schools into authoritarian microcosms of the police state, containing almost every aspect of the militarized, intolerant, senseless, overcriminalized, legalistic, surveillance-riddled, totalitarian landscape that plagues those of us on the “outside.”

Labor Day: Celebrating a bloody, violent and collectivist holiday

For most Americans, Labor Day is simply viewed as the last Summer hurrah marking the transition into fall. It’s a day to relax, maybe travel to the beach or lake one last time and enjoy one last, good outdoor barbeque with friends. They give little thought to what it means. -- “Labor Day” is a misnomer. It is a leisure day ostensibly designed to celebrate the labor movement. Labor Day has a violent, bloody and remarkably socialist history.

Central Banks Enrich a Select Few at the Expense of Many

The message unanimously churned out by politicians, central bankers, and ‘mainstream’ economists is that central banks are there for the ‘greater good’. They provide the economy with sufficient money and credit, and they fight inflation, thereby supporting output and employment growth. What is more, central banks, are supposedly in a position to effectively fend off or at least mitigate financial and economic crises. However, unfortunately, nothing could be further from the truth.

In less than two weeks the corporate media and conniving politicians will put on their “Never Forget” pins and release the obligatory condolences to the family members of the 9/11 victims. There will be TV specials and special edition magazines and newspapers to commemorate the terror attack. -- But will these displays pay tribute or raise awareness about the plight of the first responders? Will these photo ops actually question the official story of 9/11? If the answer is no, if the American public is still not ready to challenge the establishment lies surrounding September 11, 2001, then we have moved no closer to truth and these men and women are dying in vain.

Political Corpses as Propaganda Props

The week-long deification of the late John McCain was quite the deep-state performance: Three “state funerals”(in Phoenix, D.C., and Annapolis) accompanied by the constant clucking of the “mainstream” media about how the epitome of a deep-state insider — son and grandson of U.S. Navy admirals, mass murderer of Vietnamese peasants, “Keating Five” criminal conspirator, friend of “the right kind” of Middle East terrorists, lifelong government employee whose senate office was ground zero for defense industry lobbyists for the past several decades — is somehow an anti-establishment “maverick.” The televised sobbing of the very appropriately named Senator Jeff Flake was rich, as were proposals to name a government building after McCain and the seemingly endless feigned sorrow in the voices of television talking heads.

The Surveillance Economy and Its Discontents

In 2016, Amazon Web Services released Rekognition, a service that lets users analyze digital imagery in order to identify objects, including faces, based on a machine-learning algorithm.

The company has touted uses for this product that include identifying triggering content in images, determining emotions in an image, cashier-less grocery stores (which they have implemented in Amazon Go) — and, most worrisome, “public safety.”

The implications of this technology are eerily dystopian. The software is designed to identify up to 100 faces in an image or video, and can identify the emotions and actions of subjects. In the hands of the police, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) or the National Security Agency (NSA), this poses an existential risk to privacy, oppressed groups, left organizations and any other targeted person.

Incompetent Facebook Identifies Former British Ambassador as Russian Troll, Deletes His Post History

Facebook has deleted all of my posts from July 2017 to last week because I am, apparently, a Russian Bot. For a while I could not add any new posts either, but we recently found a way around that, at least for now. To those of you tempted to say “So what?”, I would point out that over two thirds of visitors to my website arrive via my posting of the articles to Facebook and Twitter. Social media outlets like this blog, which offer an alternative to MSM propaganda, are hugely at the mercy of these corporate gatekeepers.

Facebook’s plunge into censorship is completely open and admitted, as is the fact it is operated for Facebook by the Atlantic Council – the extreme neo-con group part funded by NATO and whose board includes serial war criminal Henry Kissinger, Former CIA Heads Michael Hayden and Michael Morrell, and George Bush’s chief of Homeland Security Michael Chertoff, among a whole list of horrors.

11 Facts About America’s Wildly Out Of Control Student Loan Debt Bubble

Higher education has become one of the biggest money-making scams in America. We tell all of our young people that if they want to have a bright future, they must go to college. This message is relentlessly pounded into their heads for their first 18 years, and so by the time high school graduation rolls around for many of them it would be unthinkable to do anything else. And instead of doing a cost/benefit analysis on various schools, we tell our young people to go to the best college that they can possibly get into and to not worry about what it will cost. We assure them that a great job will be there after they graduate and that great job will allow them to easily pay off any student loans that they have accumulated. Of course most college graduates don’t end up getting great jobs, but many of them do end up being financially crippled for decades by student loan debt.

Gun control advocates, however, have also adopted this technique to ensure that today’s “solution” to firearm-related violence inevitably tees up tomorrow’s even stricter measure to close the former law’s “loopholes.” As an article this week in USA TODAY demonstrated, even as gun control advocates are pressing for laws to give judges the discretion to order the seizure of guns that people already own, they are already preparing to argue that this is not enough. The next step requires giving bureaucrats the discretion to determine who should own guns in the first place.

Pentagon's Answer To Yemen Atrocities? Train More Saudi Pilots... On US Soil

New federal procurement documents unearthed and reported by TYT show that the US Air Force is planning to train Saudi pilots on US soil, which would mark the first time since the US-Saudi coalition's bombing campaign began three years ago.

The government documents show the Air Force is seeking private contractors to train Royal Saudi Air Force (RSAF) personnel to be “conducted in the U.S. at contractor’s facility.” The solicitation deadline is listed for Sept. 24, which suggests the program will move forward at rapid pace, but doesn't indicate when the training will begin.

According to TYT Investigates, it appears the Pentagon is trying to belatedly show it's "taking action" in response to increased international publicity and humanitarian outcry in response to recent atrocities of its Saudi partners:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

How completely, thoroughly wonderful; apparently, there have not yet been enough Yemeni deaths to satiate the collective appetites for assassination of the American Merchant of Death in Chief (President Trump) and the B.O.Y. (the Butcher of Yemen, AKA Saudi Arabia's Prince Bin Salman).

STRIPE COMPANY ABRUPTLY CANCELS INSTITUTE’S CREDIT CARD PROCESSING

Once again, the forces of bigotry have struck against the Institute for Historical Review. On Tuesday the company that had been processing our credit card orders and donations abruptly terminated its service for us – which means that we are currently not able to process credit card payments.

The Stripe company explained that it was taking this action – after nine months without problems or complaints – because the IHR allegedly “engages in, encourages, promotes or celebrates unlawful violence toward any group based on race, religion, disability, gender, sexual orientation, national origin, or any other immutable characteristic.”

For anyone familiar with our work, this charge is patently absurd. Of course, the company provided no evidence for its claim.

US Rejects Russia's Data on Chemical Weapons Provocations in Syria - Lavrov

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Wednesday that it seemed the US had issued threats to Damascus in order to prevent the expulsion of terrorists from Idlib province.

According to Lavrov, Russia cited more and more facts that confirm the forthcoming staging of the use of chemical weapons as a false flag in order to blame the Syrian government.

US officials "say that this is not true, but they cannot bring any facts to the basis of their position," he added.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Ever the statesman, Lavrov has called this correctly.

It is not a question of IF, but when, such an attack will take place; I would imagine that the Trump administration will order it at a precise point in time to maximize the effect of such a false flag over the coming Holiday weekend, which means we could be looking at it happening from any time potentially from tomorrow, or Friday, forward.

The US response will be so draconian and so swift, that there will be no real time for discovery of who, and why, this was done, and no time for critical thinking, or conscious, questioning voices to be heard.

Argentine Currency Collapses Most Since 2015 As Investors Finally Lose Faith

Mauricio Macri’s presidency was meant to lead Argentina out of a dismal period of debt defaults, currency controls and recession. But, as Bloomberg reports, markets show investors are losing faith in the new dawn for South America’s second-largest economy.

Despite all the constant propaganda spewing forth from officials in Argentina (and at The IMF), we leave it to an old friend and veteran EM trader to sums things up: "The Argies are proper f**ked."

Indeed, judging by today's market action and headlines, he is right, as despite the promise of a USD 50 billion International Monetary Fund (IMF) bailout (which is now being accelerated), the Argentine peso continues to collapse, inducing the next wave of inflation, and it could shortly usher in the next recession/depression.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This does not augur well for the financial future of Argentina.

"Green" California Is More Reliant On Foreign Oil Than Ever Before

California’s biggest source of crude oil imports is now Saudi Arabia with more than 98 million barrels in 2017.

Environmentalists want Gov. Jerry Brown to stop issuing new oil and gas leases.

However, that will only make California more reliant on foreign countries.

There’s a growing call for California Gov. Jerry Brown to stop issuing oil and natural gas leases in the state, with some even arguing that all state fossil fuel production should be shuttered.

Yet continuing the current trend of dwindling in-state crude production wouldn’t mean California stops using oil. The state, ranked as one of the “greenest” in the country, would still use lots of oil, it would just come from other countries.

In fact, more than 56 percent of the crude oil received by California refineries were extracted in foreign countries, according to California Energy Commission data. California, once the third-largest oil state, is now more reliant than ever on foreign oil.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

California's oil consumption is absolutely at complete odds with its desired "green-forward" goals.

Facebook Engineer's Stunning Admission: "We Tear Down Posters Welcoming Trump Supporters"

On Tuesday morning, President Trump lashed out at Google, with his remarks later broadening to include Twitter and Facebook, accusing it of "rigging" search results by presenting only results "from National Left-Wing Media" and accused "Google & others are suppressing voices of Conservatives and hiding information and news that is good."

Those companies "better be careful because you can’t do that to people," Trump said later in the Oval Office. "I think that Google, and Twitter and Facebook, they are really treading on very, very troubled territory and they have to be careful. It is not fair to large portions of the population.”

Google immediately responded, condemning Trump's charge, and claiming that "Search is not used to set a political agenda and we don’t bias our results toward any political ideology."

And yet, as so often happens, in Trump's crude delivery, the politically incorrect truth was once again found.

Media Too Busy Defending John McCain to Report the News That Actually Affects You

And as the media continues to wax hysterical about Trump’s dishonorable behavior, the real issues remain swept under the rug while the very public the government is spying on is distracted by partisan quibbling and false outrage. The TSA continues to expand its authority, the NSA is collecting growing amounts of data, the use of facial recognition technology and biometrics is on the rise, and the government continues to spend trillions of dollars on wars that have failed to stop terrorism.

But the White House only flew the special American cloth at half mast for a day, and we should all be very concerned.

It’s Time to Stop Celebrating Criminals

The only way to navigate this sea of lies and propaganda is to develop critical thinking skills and refuse to blindly accept the proclamations of the state and their lackey corporate media. We must focus our energies on empowering ourselves and our communities. Rather than celebrating governmental criminals we should honor and celebrate our own heroes. We should take time to remember those who have served in our communities and our neighborhoods. The real heroes lie in your own backyard, not in the federal government. Once the American people have accepted this and stopped swallowing the false narratives we will finally see a shift in power. Until then, can we at least stop celebrating these criminals?

The Tectonic Plates Of Geopolitics Are Starting To Shift

The peak of American empire has already come and gone, but this reality is not yet widely understood due to the continued dominance of the global financial system by the U.S. dollar, still the world’s preeminent reserve currency. U.S. leaders have always used the USD as a weapon, but it’s only in recent years that geopolitical rivals and long-standing allies alike have started to come to an increasingly vocal understanding that the unipolar role played by the U.S. in the world’s centralized financial system is well past its expiration date.

Trump doubles down on claim Google is 'suppressing conservative voices and hiding good news' threatening 'serious situation WILL be addressed'

Donald Trump is refusing to back down from his claim that Google 'rigged' its results to show only bad news stories about him.

The tech firm categorically denied on Tuesday that politics play any role in the complex algorithms that determine what users are shown when they search a term.

Google said in a statement: 'Search is not used to set a political agenda' and that 'we never rank search results to manipulate political sentiment.'

The president had launched an early-morning attack on the firm after apparently seeing a chart on a conservative news site that claimed to portray news outlets' biases. The article containing the chart was headlined '96 Percent of Google Search Results for "Trump" News Are from Liberal Media Outlets.'

Trump then tweeted, then deleted, then tweeted an assault on Google again that claimed the search engine giant is 'suppressing' the voices of conservatives.

The Offending Tweets That Got Me Banned for Life From Twitter

A leaky little “bird” inside Twitter tells me these are the tweets that got me banned for life.

I have no way of verifying this; official Twitter will not respond to my inquiries. I stand accused of dehumanizing several reporters (“targeted abuse”), using words to offend them into silence. It seems now you can judge for yourself, as it should be.

This whole series of threads started when Trump accused the press of being “enemies of the people,” followed by Glenn Greenwald reminding us how the media enables America’s wars.

The story of how a US President violated crystal-clear treaty, lied to play victim, used US military to invade and capture colossal natural resources, then overcame ‘Truthers’ (and how ‘reasons’ for 1846 War on Mexico repeats over and over)

Google Bans 39 YouTube Channels For Ties To Iran; Facebook and Twitter Ban Accounts

Google claims 39 YouTube channels were connected to Iran and part of a covert Iranian-backed operation to spread propaganda to U.S. viewers and 49 were part of a Russian-backed operation to spread disinfo, PC MAG reported.

According to PC MAG, the propaganda campaign disguised itself by pretending to be several independent media websites, one of which was called the Liberty Front Press.

Further digging shows the cybersecurity firm FireEye investigated the media group and alleges uncovered evidence that it actually originates from Iran.

Soros' Role In Social Media Censorship Exposed In Leaked Document

Social media censorship is here and out in the open, and it has become clear that the major tech companies are working together to shut down and silence members of the free press for political reasons.

Of course, this has everything to do with Donald Trump being in office, and whether you support him or not, what is being lost in the effort to depose him will eventually affect everyone.

Censorship is not the American way, and while people today may think that the ‘other’ side is dead wrong and shouldn’t be allowed to speak up, it takes a special kind of influence to achieve the level of social media and platform banning that we’ve seen in recent weeks.

It turns out, according to a leaked 49 page document, that this special influence may be none other than George Soros himself, the world’s wealthiest liberal political agitator. Soros has long been known to exert influence, via his immense personal wealth, at the grass-roots level of many political struggles around the world.

Is the US and Its Allies Preparing to Bomb Syria? Towards a “No Fly Zone” in Northern Syria?

Are the U.S. France and Britain preparing to launch punitive airstrikes against Syria in reprisal for another (forthcoming) “false flag” Chemical Weapons attack allegedly ordered by president Bashar al Assad against his own people.

U.S. National Security Adviser John Bolton is reported to have told his Russian counterpart, Nikolai Patrushev, that “Syrian President Bashar al-Assad may be preparing to use chemical weapons to recapture the northwestern province of Idlib from rebels.”

On August 22, at a press conference in Jerusalem, John Bolton, Trump’s (“Humanitarian”) National Security Adviser expressed his “concern” intimating that Assad is preparing to “kill his own people”:

“We are obviously concerned about the possibility that Assad may use chemical weapons again, …

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The tired old premise Bolton is "trotting out" to his Russian counterpart, Nikolai Patrushev, has one absolutely fatal flaw; there is absolutely no logical reason for Al Assad to do this, now that he, with Russian and Iranian help, have pretty much taken the country back under Damascus' control.

So here is the translation, and please note that it it is primarily for US domestic consumption, because the Iranians, Syrians, and Russians know better: we are being "set up" for a US/NATO false flag in Syria, as the justification for creating a "no fly zone" against the country, if not bombing the hell out of it outright.

The question here for me, is what will Russia do when this happens?!?

IS this the way the US is going to "justify" a war against Russia in Syria?!?

Were I a betting person, I would bet that this will be in place for executing next month, possibly right after the Labor Day holiday here in the US.

President Trump is desperate for something to distract the American people from the events of last week, in terms of the Manafort convictions and the Cohen plea deal, and my guess is, that it will either be military action against Syria, or against Iran, both "favorite enemies" of this administration.

Paul Craig Roberts: Watching America Collapse

In the 1950s and 1960s the United States was a vibrant society. Upward mobility was strong, and the middle class expanded. During the 1970s the internal contradiction in Keynesian demand management resulted in stagflation. Reagan’s supply-side economic policy cured that. With a sound economy under him, Reagan was able to pressure the Soviet government, which was unable to solve its economic problem, to negotiate the end of the cold war.

The collapse of the Soviet Union is usually attributed to Reagan and represented as one of his victories. This is a fabrication. I was in Reagan’s government, both as Assistant Secretary of the Treasury and afterward as a member of a secret Presidential Committee with subpeona power over the CIA. Reagan told us many times that his purpose was not to win the Cold War but to end it.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am seeing the devolution of the Unhinged, Surveilled State of Amerika as coming about in two ways; either a complete economic collapse of this country, due to decades of bad planning, bad policies, and influence-peddling, or a major world war, which this country may well not win.

New Report Details US Public Less Safe Under Militarized Police

A new study published by the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences on August 20 reveals that the militarization of law enforcement in the United States does not make communities safer nor does it enhance officer safety.

Study author Jonathan Mummolo conducted a statistical analysis on crime rates and officer safety data from Maryland, using an expired law — in effect between 2010-2014 — required that police agencies submit reports on how often they use SWAT teams.

SWAT (Special Weapons And Tactics) teams are intended to be used in emergency service and specifically for hostage, armed standoff and barricade situations in which heavily armed and armored troops assault an area after negotiations have broken down.

Britain Prepares For War Against Russia

The headline in the UK newspaper the Daily Mail on August 7 encapsulated much that is paranoid in sad modern Britain. It read “Russian warships pass through English Channel as Putin's armed forces ratchet up pressure on the Royal Navy.”

But this dreadful state of affairs means nothing to those who lack for nothing — which includes politicians of the governing Conservative Party who demand that more taxpayers’ money must be spent on military hardware. The previous defence minister, Michael Fallon (who had to resign because he was found out to have indulged in some sexual shenanigans), told the BBC last year that “we will be adding to defence, there will be new equipment and the budget will grow every year” and the present one, Gavin Williamson (the man who said that Russia should “go away and shut up”), demanded in June that Britain increase its annual military spending by £20 billion, or about 25 billion dollars.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Is The Social Media Crackdown On Conservatives About To Get Even Worse?

Is the social media crackdown on conservatives about to get even worse?

On Friday, representatives from Facebook, Google, Twitter, Microsoft, Snapchat and other major social media companies gathered to discuss “strategy” for the 2018 election. Supposedly they were going to discuss how to combat the flow of “misinformation”, but we know what that means. Every time the social media giants pledge to do more to crack down on “fake news”, more conservatives get censored. In recent months we have witnessed the greatest purge of conservative voices in the history of the Internet, and as you will see below, even more prominent voices have been hit with bans in recent days. Of course the social media companies are pledging that their censorship efforts are being implemented in an even-handed manner, but obviously all of their meddling has greatly enhanced the probability that Democrats will emerge victorious in November.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If you want a picture of where this censorship is most probably going to go, particularly if Democrats are successful in winning the House and Senate in November, just think: The Great Firewall of China.

There will be no discussion which has not been filtered, no critical questions can be asked, and every agenda desired by the American Deep State, will be brought about, no matter the costs in blood and money for ordinary American citizens.

To Understand America's Neofeudal Economy, Start With Extortion

Authored by Charles Hugh Smith via OfTwoMinds blog,

Here is the result of America's neofeudalism: soaring wealth and income inequality.

Let's spin the time machine back to the late Middle Ages, at the height of feudalism, and imagine we're trying to get a boatload of goods to the nearest city to sell. As we drift down the river, we're constantly being stopped and charged a fee for transiting one small fiefdom after another. When we finally reach the city, there's an entry fee for bringing our goods to market.

Note that none of these fees were payments for improvements to transport or for services rendered; they were simply extortion. This was the economic structure of feudalism: petty fiefdoms levied extortionate fees that funded the lifestyles of nobility.

Europe Is Working On Alternative To SWIFT For "Financial Independence" From The US

In the aftermath of a report that Germany was working on a global payment system that is independent of the US and SWIFT, on Monday Germany and France said they’re working on financing solutions to sidestep U.S. sanctions against countries such as Iran, including a possible role for central banks, Bloomberg reported.

"With Germany, we are determined to work on an independent European or Franco-German financing tool which would allow us to avoid being the collateral victims of U.S. extra-territorial sanctions," French Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire said Monday during a meeting with press association AJEF. “I want Europe to be a sovereign continent not a vassal, and that means having totally independent financing instruments that do not today exist.”

The discussions, which also involve the U.K., are a signal that European powers are trying to get serious about demonstrating a greater level of independence from the U.S. as President Donald Trump pursues his “America First” agenda.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Whatever the intent of President Trump's sanctions, the cold, hard reality is that they are uniting Europe and Iran against the US, and these countries are looking to trade without using either the SWIFT global payment system, or the US dollar.

Mr. President, I know you are trying to satiate the desires/demands of Sheldon Adelson, your richest American/Zionist backer, who has, apparently purchased your Presidency, and those of one of your BFFs in the Middle East, Israel's Prime Minister Netanyahu; but sir, it is painfully clear, and brutally apparent to me, that we are headed to a war against Iran, with Russia and China lined up on Iran's side, and the US, Israel, Saudi Arabia, and NATO on the other.

Such a war, sir, would be one of the most ham-fistedly, pig-headedly stupid things the United States could do at the moment, because if your military advisors were being thoroughly honest with you, they would tell you that this country's military does't have the money; the weaponry; the troop strength; and the manufacturing to insure a military victory over a combined Russian/Chinese contingent against it in Iran.

Saudi King Shelved Aramco IPO To Teach Son, Prince Bin Salman A Lesson

As was first reported in early 2016, for the past two years Saudi Arabia had been preparing to place up to 5% of its national oil company, Saudi Aramco, on the stock market. Officials talked up the Aramco initial public offering with international exchanges, global banks and President Donald Trump.

The planned listing was supposed to be the cornerstone of the kingdom’s promised economic overhaul and, at a targeted $100 billion, the biggest IPO ever. More importantly, it was the brainchild of 32-year-old Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, heir apparent of the world's largest oil exporter and the effective head of OPEC.

However, after months of setbacks, the deal came to a crashing halt after the international and domestic legs of the IPO were pulled earlier this month.

The reason, according to Reuters: King Salman - the prince's father - stepped in to shelve it.

BONE-CHILLING FOOTAGE FROM INSIDE CHINA SHOWS RAW REALITY OF ENSLAVEMENT TACITLY SUPPORTED BY BIG TECH

Chinese man describes the horror as best he can: “They’re eating our flesh and drinking our blood“.

This is the system that big tech companies are bowing to.

Apple and Google have created a dangerous precedent for both business and press freedom in choosing to ally with the communist Chinese.

In following Chinese regulations on net censorship, these tech companies are enabling a tyrannical regime unlike anything else on the planet.

This report details multiple families stories of false accusations, executions and torture:

As the world is tilting toward tyranny, the United States must re-light the beacon of freedom and keep it lit. If we do not, this darkness will penetrate our land. It will no longer be something that is happening “out there”. It will be knocking on – or breaking down – your door.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What the author of this article apparently has not realized, is that the American Deep State is attempting to crush and push American citizens down the same cesspit of dictatorship, persecution, and "content management" that the Chinese have; these people comprising the American Deep State, obviously do not realize that George Orwell's "1984" was a cautionary tale, and not a "how to" book.

IRAN SAYS IT HAS FULL CONTROL OF GULF, U.S. NAVY DOES NOT BELONG THERE

(Reuters) - Iran has full control of the Gulf and the U.S. Navy does not belong there, the head of the navy of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards, General Alireza Tangsiri, was quoted by Tasnim news agency as saying on Monday.

Tehran has suggested it could take military action in the Gulf to block other countries’ oil exports in retaliation for U.S. sanctions intended to halt its sales of crude. Washington maintains a fleet in the Gulf that protects oil shipping routes.

Tangsiri said Iran had full control of the Gulf and the Strait of Hormuz that leads into it. Closing the strait would be the most direct way of blocking shipping.

“We can ensure the security of the Persian Gulf and there is no need for the presence of aliens like the U.S. and the countries whose home is not in here,” he said in the quote, which appeared in English translation on Tasnim.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

General Tangsiri, a word, please: should Iran do this, the US government will use such an action as the "justification" for war against your country, and retaliate, with full military force, against Iran.

In fact, sir, such an action is something the US government would love to see your country do.

CHARTER SPECTRUM SECURITY FLAW EXPOSES PRIVATE DATA OF MILLIONS OF SUBSCRIBERS

Last year you'll recall that the cable and broadband industry lobbied the government to kill off broadband privacy rules at the FCC. The rules were fairly basic, requiring that ISPs and cable operators clearly disclose what data is being collected and sold, but also provide working opt out tools for users who didn't want to participate. The rules also contained restrictions requiring that consumers opt in to more sensitive data collection (financial), as well as some requirements that ISPs and cable ops adhere to standard security procedures, and quickly inform consumers when their private data was exposed by a hacker.

‘THIS IS NO LAND GRAB’: SOUTH AFRICAN PRESIDENT DEFENDS PROPERTY SEIZURE PLANS

South African President Cyril Ramaphosa has defended land reform plans that include property expropriation days after the US President Donald Trump questioned the policy.

“This is no land grab. Nor is it an assault on the private ownership of property,” Ramaphosa wrote in his column for the Financial Times. “The proposals will not erode property rights, but will instead ensure that the rights of all South Africans, and not just those who currently own land, are strengthened.”

The ruling African National Congress (ANC) party has proposed a constitutional amendment allowing the government to seize and redistribute land without any compensation to its owners. The draft, which has not been adopted so far, evoked widespread international outrage and multiple media reports of alleged violence against South African white farmers, including murders.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Sorry, South African President Cyril Ramaphosa, this proposal doesn't pass the duck test.

IF the policy looks like expropriation without compensation, offers only expropriation without compensation, and can only result in expropriation without compensation, it is, by logic and definition, sir, expropriation without compensation for South African farmers, period, end of discussion.

Ownership of farm land, without having the fundamentals of knowing how to work it, to produce excellent crops on a consistent basis, is a recipe for utter disaster here, as has happened with Zimbabwe.

So look for massive immigration of farmers who can get out, and can find a place to land, (perhaps Russia, because of their agricultural skills) ; the collapse of South African banks, because many of these farms are deep in debt, and the collapse of its agricultural capabilities, to the point of South Africa needing to import a large proportion of the food they need.

The Rand may also well experience an horrific downturn because of this as well.

NEW FLORIDA LAW: “IN GOD WE TRUST” MUST BE PLACED IN ALL PUBLIC SCHOOLS

The heightened scrutiny of the motto’s placement in school buildings in Florida is likely attributable to the global coverage of the deadly assault carried out by a gunman at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, earlier this year.

As would be expected in this day of intolerance, there are opponents of the law and its mandated mounting of the state motto (“In God We Trust” was made the official state motto in 2006).

In a statement regarding the recently enacted law, the Freedom From Religion Foundation called the Constitution as a witness for its claims: “These godly postings exclude and alienate the one-in-five students in our public schools who do not believe in god. And they’re meant to,” the foundation’s statement reads. “These laws are not about patriotism, they’re about turning believers into insiders, and nonbelievers into outsiders. There’s nothing patriotic in undermining our nation’s secular Constitution.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As a Christian, I definitely find myself siding with the "Freedom From Religion Foundation" here.

Faith should never be coerced; it should be embraced, because people have seen loving examples of how it has worked in their lives, and the lives of others.

Faith cannot, and should not, be forced.

LEGAL BATTLE BETWEEN US AND IRAN OPENS AT UN’S HIGHEST COURT

The International Court of Justice (ICJ) is hearing Iran’s lawsuit against the US over President Donald Trump’s decision to re-impose sanctions on the Islamic Republic after he withdrew from the landmark 2015 nuclear deal.
According to Tehran, the policy conducted by Washington “is nothing but naked economic aggression”.

“The US is publicly propagating a policy intended to damage as severely as possible Iran’s economy and Iranian national companies, and therefore inevitably Iranian nationals,” Iran’s legal representative, Mohsen Mohebi, the international law adviser to the Iranian president, said at The Hague at the beginning of the four-day session for Tehran’s case on Monday.

“Iran will put up the strongest resistance to the US economic strangulation, by all peaceful means,” he added.

US State Secretary Mike Pompeo described Iran’s filing with the ICJ as “an attempt to interfere with the sovereign rights of the US.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I see that American hubris regarding Iran, egged on by Israel's Netanyahu, is still riding high; and yes, Secretary of State Pompeo, these proceedings are an absolutely legitimate use of the Court by Iran!!

Why We Can’t Ignore the “Militia” Clause of the Second Amendment

Fearful that a large federal military could be used to destroy the freedoms of the states themselves, Anti-Federalists and other Americans fearful of centralized power in the US government designed the Second Amendment accordingly. It was designed to guarantee that the states would be free to raise and train their own militias as a defense against federal power, and as a means of keeping a defensive military force available to Americans while remaining outside the direct control of the federal government.
