US Airstrike Kills 25, Including Children, in Eastern Syria: Slain were mostly women and children

A US airstrike in eastern Syria’s al-Shaafa region has killed at least 25 people on Monday, with more than half of the slain identified as women and children, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

Details on the slain are still emerging, but US spokesman Col. Ryan Dillon attempted to downplay reports, saying the US takes “all allegations seriously,” and that if any civilians were killed they’d be included in the Pentagon’s monthly list. The Pentagon, of course, tends to ultimately count only about 10-15% of the deaths in their official lists.

The al-Shaafa area is believed to be one of the last strongholds of ISIS forces inside Syria, and that has made it a popular target for airstrikes by various anti-ISIS factions. So far, however, the strikes have appeared to kill mostly just random civilians.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The murder of a country's children, via airstrikes, is an assassination against that country's future.

In its vicious and violent attempt to partition Syria, the American Government is completely unphased by its military commiting these war crimes; I do not blame the American military for this; it is their mission, and they can shake off civilian casualties by characterising them as "collateral damage."

It is simply another manifestation of the Trump administration's "OR ELSE!!" foreign policy, one to which I am afraid that the American people have become "comfortably numb", in order to avoid having to think about this, or discuss the moral rightness of these actions.

South Korea Pushes for US, North Korea Talks; Trump Says ‘We’ll See’

Hoping to expand on diplomatic gains made surrounding the Winter Olympics, South Korea is pushing for the US and North Korea to both ease their stances a bit and get to the table for direct negotiations and quickly as possible.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in in particular said the US needs to lower its threshold for talks, citing long-standing US preconditions, while North Korea should make it clear they’re willing to discuss nuclear disarmament.

North Korean officials have broached the subject in the past, saying they would be willing to disarm their nuclear program if the deal ends the threat of US attack, which they believe they need a nuclear deterrent to preclude.

White House officials reiterated over the weekend that they would only talk if there was a guarantee that the talks would end in North Korea’s denuclearization.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would love to think that this was possible; but North Korea will not stand down from its position to remain a nuclear-armed country, as a deterrent to a US invasion, and the US government will not stand down from its position that it will not talk unless North Korea denuclearises.

So what we have here... is the potential for a catastrophe which may will impact the entire planet.

Expect China to join the fray on North Korea's side, should the US start this war; the best hope would be for China to remain neutral, if North Korea started an attack on any US assets, but were I a betting human being, I would not bet on that happening.

BRITAIN OFFICIALLY PREPARES NOW FOR WAR AGAINST RUSSIA

Eric Zuesse, originally posted at strategic-culture.org
On Wednesday, February 21st, the UK’s Minister of Defence, Conservative Gavin Williamson, announced that the United Kingdom is changing its fundamental defence strategy from one that’s targeted against non-state terrorists (Al Qaeda, etc.), to one that’s targeted instead against three countries: Russia, China, and North Korea. He acknowledged that a massive increase in military spending will be needed for this, and that “savings” will have to be found in other areas of Government-spending, such as the health services, and in military spending against terrorism.

The headline in the London Times on February 22nd was “Russia ‘is a bigger threat to our security than terrorists’”. Their Defence Editor, Deborah Haynes. reported:

The threat to Britain from states such as Russia and North Korea is greater than that posed by terrorism, the defence secretary said yesterday, marking a significant shift in security policy.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Forgive me, but has this gentleman, and the entire government of the UK, gone collectively barking-dog mad, in this assessment?!?

Or, was it theirs to make in the first place, or a determination forced upon them by the current US administration?!?

With so much of their country already living in the abject misery of poverty because of the British government's austerity program, what will the future tooling up of their war machine, possibly coupled with conscription of Britain's youth, mean for Britain's future?!?

So I have a statement for Mr Williamson to ponder: Those who do not understand the past (Iraq) are doomed to repeat it (Russia, China, Korea).

BROWARD COUNTY SHERIFFS DEPUTIES WERE ORDERED NOT TO ENTER FLORIDA SCHOOL UNLESS BODY CAMERAS WERE ON

Fox News’ Laura Ingraham dropped a bombshell revelation on the Florida Parkland school shooting, exposing how the Sheriff’s department ordered Broward deputies to NOT enter the school unless their body cameras were switched on.

To make matters even more confusing, the deputies were not even equipped with body cameras to begin with.

From @IngrahamAngle: Broward County Sheriff Deputies were reportedly told not to enter the school during the shooting unless they had body cameras on, which they did not have. So deputies did not enter the building or engage the shooter.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This coverup is falling apart faster than a cheaply made suit!!

AMERICANS ARE HORRIFIED BY MASS KILLINGS — UNLESS THE GOVERNMENT IS DOING IT

As Americans continue to rage over the Valentine’s Day school shooting in Florida, expressing indignation at both the atrocity and efforts to impose (or reject) gun control, the U.S. government has acknowledged its own perpetual addiction to violence.

According to two letters released by the federal government last week in response to an inquiry from Virginia Senator Tim Kaine, the U.S. plans to maintain its military presence in Syria and Iraq indefinitely, citing vague threats of terrorism.

In one letter, Deputy Under Secretary of Defense (Policy) David Trachtenberg responded to Kaine by justifying continued operations in Syria with the 2001 Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF), passed by Congress in the wake of 9/11 to justify invading Afghanistan.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

An "indefinte" US military presence in Syria?!?

Forgive me, but has either Syria's Al-Assad or Russia's Putin received a copy of this memo?!?

Remember; Russia was invited by the Syrian government to assist with getting rid of the Western-backed jihadists; the US absolutely was not.

The US military actions in Syria and Iraq are absolutely not about "self-defense", except in the pure economic sense; these actions are about ultimately, regime change in Damascus, making Syria more Western-Centric, and in both countries, assuring that the oil from these countries is only sold in US dollars; it is just that simple.

This virtually guarantees a military confrontation between Russia and the United States in Syria. I think that the question of how much of this nonsense Syria and Russia will take from the United States will be answered relatively shortly.

Unfortunately, it appears that US foreign policy, under the Trump administration, has devolved to the "OR ELSE!!!" school of foreign policy, which counts only on threats, and pre-emptive wars with which to secure what the US government wants to accomplish, rather than even attempt to make deals which would accomplish the same outcomes.
'
This country was founded on a brilliant concept of responsible, representative government, serving the needs and hopes of its citizens; that country has died, and been replaced by a government which only represents the needs and concerns of major corporations, and their desire to acquire, no matter how many innocents get crushed in the way of those acquisitions.

Wars are fought for corporate profit, not for any great noble ideal; not for truth; not for justice; and not to allegedly protect the "American Way of Life", whatever that is supposed to be.

When Karl Marx observed that "All wars are economic in origin.", he was being ruthlessly honest, which is why so many US politicians hate this reality; after all, it thoroughly interferes with the US Deep State narrative that its wars are always just; honest; and moral, which we now know to be a complete and utter lie.

Jared Kushner Belongs To Rothschild’s Doomsday Cult

Sheriff Israel is a Chabad-Lubavitcher.

Trump’s son-in-law and senior advisor Jared Kushner belongs to an elite doomsday cult that boasts the Rothschilds as members and is trying to foment a “prophesied” third world war.

Chabad Lubavitch is a Jewish supremacist cult that serve the Illuminati. Despite only having 200,000 elite followers, it has intimate ties to nearly every powerful government leader on earth.

The cult believes Jews are God’s chosen people and everyone else is trash. In the book Gatherings of Conversations Rebbe Schneerson tells his followers that Jewish people are an extension of God and Gentiles are destined to serve the Jews.

The Rothschilds belong to this cult. Historian Wolfgang Eggert says Chabad Lubavitch is the real face of the Illuminati. He says this cult intends to initiate a nuclear holocaust in order to fulfill biblical prophecy and hasten the return of the Messiah:

RUSSIA ORDERS DAILY TRUCE FOR EVACUATIONS FROM SYRIA’S EASTERN GHOUTA

Russia said on Monday it would establish an evacuation corridor and implement a five-hour daily truce to allow people to leave Syria’s eastern Ghouta, after a UN Security Council resolution demanding a 30-day ceasefire across the entire country, Reuters reports.

It appeared to make no mention, however, of allowing relief supplies to enter the territory, where 400,000 people are living under siege and bombardment.

Over the past week, Syria’s army and its allies have subjected the rebel-held enclave near Damascus to one of the heaviest bombardments of the seven-year war, killing hundreds.

On Sunday, health authorities there said several people had symptoms consistent with chlorine gas exposure. On Monday, rescue workers and a monitoring group said seven small children had been killed by air and artillery strikes in one town.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

My heart breaks for all the innocents who have been killed in this horrific, US government sponsored war, in an attempt to accomplish regime change in Damascus.

But it has been unable to do that, so has decided to create a "beachhead" in Syria, from where they can attempt to partition the country.

In December, it was reported by the NYT that there had been a fourfold increase in US troops in Syria:

U.S. Says 2,000 Troops Are in Syria, a Fourfold Increase

Many of these troops are now embedded with the Kurdish forces in Manbij, Syria, which, for the moment, is not being invaded by the Turks, because of a deal worked out in consultations between US and Turkish officials.
Syria conflict: US and Turkey agree to avert Manbij clash

But the specre of a Turkish/US military confrontation over Syria, and a Russian/US military confrontation over Syria hangs in the air, like the rotten stench of a corpse; it feels as though one of the two scenarios is very likely to happen, and it is only a question of time before it does.

BBC Declares Populism Can Be ‘Truly Terrifying’, Cites Brexit and Trump

A video produced by BBC Ideas has argued that the “fervour of populist politics can be truly terrifying,” citing the Brexit vote and the election of President Donald Trump.

The video explains that “populist is almost always a pejorative term and no one really wants the label,” claiming that “most populist leaders would rather see themselves as inspiring grassroots movements.”

“Political debate involves reason, science, evidence, challenge, and argument. Free speech and a free press on vital to this,” the narrator says.

“Populists, in contrast, love stirring hearts with rhetoric, aren’t renowned for using reason and evidence and argument, and are keen in dividing the world into ‘us’ and ‘them’.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation: Ordinary people are too stupid to run the world.

US sanctions Libya oil smugglers

The United States has issued a new round of sanctions targeting oil smugglers in Libya aimed at blocking exploitation of natural resources that is driving instability, the US Treasury Department said on Monday.

In a statement, Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) said it was sanctioning six people, 24 companies and seven vessels in a move that prohibits Americans from engaging with those targeted and freezes any related property under US jurisdictions.

The sanctions target people from Libya, Malta and Egypt for "involvement in the smuggling of petroleum products from Libya to Europe".

Issued under the authority of a 2016 executive order by then President Barack Obama, companies based in Italy, Libya and Malta are also targets, the statement said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The rest of the world isn't going to be quite that fussy about from where they can get below-market oil, and if they can get it from illegal smugglers in Libya, they will.

This is a massive effort, courtesy of the American government, to appear that it is actually doing something about the instability generated by the assassination of Moamar Ghaddafi 7 years ago, when these sanctions really do next to nothing to get at the root of the problem.

And the root of the problem, is getting Libya stable again, with a functioning government which can protect its own people and its industries, which, unfortunately, does not appear to be happening any time soon.

CHINA DROWNS OUT CRITICS OF LIFETIME XI JINPING PRESIDENCY, AS ‘DISAGREE’ AMONG WORDS CENSORED ONLINE

China’s propaganda machine kicked into overdrive Tuesday to defend the Communist Party’s move to scrap term limits for President Xi Jinping as critics on social media again defied censorship attempts.

The country has shocked many observers by proposing a constitutional amendment to end the two-term limit for presidents, giving Xi a clear path to rule the world’s second largest economy for life.

The rubber-stamp National People’s Congress (NPC) is certain to endorse the move next week, meaning that Xi — already China’s most powerful leader in decades — can stay as president beyond 2023.

Li Datong, a former editor at the state-run China Youth Daily, posted a draft letter urging legislators to vote against the move — which would abolish term limits set in 1982 under Deng Xiaoping to prevent a return to the decades of chaos under Mao Zedong.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

We're not quite there, in terms of media censorship here in the United State; however, Facebook and Twitter are working valliantly to bring this country down to the same state of media censorship as we find in present-day China on this, and many other issues, which they find "objectionalble", and not fitting to the deep state's narrative.

For example, where are Facebook's people talking about the US government and military colluding with Saudi Arabia in the commission of war crimes in Yemen and citing examples of these atrocities?!?

Were I a betting person, I would bet a whole, worthless US cent that such a topic is not discussed there; the only place, most generally, that you will find it is in the independent media.

I do not know about you, but I am very angry at having to stay a citizen of a country which commits war crimes with impunity (BECAUSE IT CAN!!), and unable to leave, because Mike and I are too broke, and too old, to be accepted for citizenship by a more civilized country which doesn't indulge in this kind of behaviour.

PUTIN ACTS TO COUNTER HACK ATTACKS ON TOP RUSSIAN OFFICIALS

Russian President Vladimir Putin has given the Federal Guard Service (FSO) powers to counter hack attacks on state data resources as well as to protect the personal data of senior state officials and their families.
Putin signed the decree, which was published on the official state website for legal information, on Tuesday. It states that the FSO can launch operations on “informational warfare, detection, prevention and elimination of consequences of computer attacks on informational resources of the Russian Federation.”

In addition, the agency is charged with the task of protecting the personal data of senior state officials and their family members, and also sanctioning the processing of such personal data by third parties.

The latest Russian doctrine on information security, introduced at the end of 2016, states that various foreign nations have intensified their efforts to affect Russia’s internal affairs and launch cyberattacks against its key infrastructure.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder, in an election year in Russia, (March 2018) precisely whichnation/state might be doing this, in order to potentially sway the election, and gather scientific intel to make their weapons even begin to catch up to those of Russia?!?

I will give you three guesses and the first two don't count!!

EU says Ireland's Apple complaint will only be dropped if it recovers the full $16 billion in unpaid taxes

The European Commission could withdraw its complaint against Ireland for not recovering 13 billion euros in unpaid taxes from Apple if the country recovers the amount in full, the EU's Competition Commissioner Margrethe Vestager told CNBC.

Speaking to CNBC, Vestager said it has taken Ireland "too long" to recover the money, but she understands that the process is complex.

The European Commission will withdraw its complaint against Ireland for not recovering 13 billion euros ($16 billion) in unpaid taxes from Apple, but only if the country recovers that amount in full, the EU's Competition Commissioner Margrethe Vestager told CNBC.

The EU took Ireland to the European Court of Justice last October for failure to recover the sum from the technology giant, when it was ruled that Apple had benefited from illegal tax benefits in Ireland in August 2016. According to EU law, the recovery of funds should usually take four months after the Commission issued its decision.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Watch for the prices of Apple products to soar in an attempt to get this debt paid.

BANK OF AMERICA ADMITS CRYPTOCURRENCIES THREATEN ITS BUSINESS MODEL

One of the largest banks in the United States has acknowledged that cryptocurrencies could pose a threat to its business model. In Bank of America’s new annual report filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), the corporation largely reflected internally about a number of economic, geopolitical, and operational risks faced.

One of those stated risks is surrounding the increased adaptation of cryptocurrencies, which could have negative effects on the corporation’s earning potential.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Oh, HORRORS! Bank of America may well have to become truly competitive to survive! How will they ever do it, short of resorting to sharp business practices which fleece their customers more then they already do?!?

Time will solve that problem, I guess!!

Trump: If North Korea Doesn’t Obey Me, I Might Punish the Whole World

On Friday, president Trump announced that his administration would be hitting North Korea with the “heaviest sanctions ever imposed on a country before.” The new penalties target dozens of ships and shipping companies that have (allegedly) been helping Pyongyang sustain its economy — and thus, its nuclear program. Specifically, these firms have allegedly enabled Kim Jong Un’s regime to evade previous sanctions by helping it trade illicitly with other countries while at sea, as opposed to on land, where such verboten commerce would be more easily detected.

The move represents an escalation of the White House’s latest strategy for combating the North Korean nuclear program: Pursue direct talks with Pyongyang — while imposing maximum economic pain on the regime — in hopes of forcing Kim Jong Un to denuclearize without unleashing “fire and fury like the world has never seen.”

'Free Speech' Suit Aims to End Twitter's Political Censorship | Breitbart

A group of free-speech lawyers filed the most serious legal challenge yet to Twitter’s censorship policies Tuesday in San Francisco County Superior Court, seeking a ruling preventing Twitter from banning users purely on the basis of their views and political associations.

The 29-page complaint contends that, under a California legal doctrine that recognizes some private facilities as “public forums,” Twitter may not discriminate against speech on their platform based purely on viewpoint. If successful, it would be the first extension of that doctrine to internet social media platforms and could transform the way free speech is treated online. The suit became all the more relevant Wednesday as Twitter stood accused of locking out thousands of conservatives under the guise of cracking down on “Russian bots.”

NATIONAL SECURITYPOLITICSRepublicans Refute ‘Point by Point’ Democratic Memo on Dossier

On Saturday the much anticipated Democratic memo written by ranking minority member of the committee Rep. Adam Schiff, D-CA, was released and surmised that former British spy “Christopher Steele’s raw intelligence reporting did not inform the FBI’s decision to initiate its counterintelligence investigation in late July 2016” among other assertions. The dossier played a significant role in the investigation into President Trump’s 2016 campaign and alleged that members of the Trump campaign were colluding with the Russian government against then-presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

“The American people now clearly understand that the FBI used political dirt paid for by the Democratic Party to spy on an American citizen from the Republican Party”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Democratic Party has thrown itself into a chasm of mistrust on the part of the American people over this nonsense, and may well never recover.

And to add insult to injury, here's another story, from what whatdoesitmean.com, about the DNC's attitude toward throwing Bernie Sanders under the proverbial bus regarding their having rigged the primary elections in Clinton's favor:

Lawyers For The DNC Argue That 'Primary Rigging' Is Protected By The First Amendment

Talk about desperation on the cusp of madness! Because of the way in which the DNC rigged the primaries to keep Bernie from ever having a chance at winning the nomination, American Democrats and Independents had utterly zero choice in the last election; they simply had Hillary crammed down their collective throats, whether they wanted her or not.

SUPER-SECRET SPY COURT RAISES ALARM OVER FEDS' SNOOPING

It’s a mysterious court that hides behind a hulking vaulted door and impenetrable concrete walls – and it’s where the federal government makes some of its most secretive decisions concerning Americans’ basic liberties.

If you dare ask where the secret court is located, employees at the E. Barrett Prettyman Federal Courthouse in Washington, D.C. – where the court reportedly relocated in 2009 – won’t tell you.

That’s because the super-secret court is far beyond the reach of any journalist or curious American citizen.

Ron Paul Warns "We Can't Continue To Run The World"

Sputnik: Donald Trump has been in office for over a year. What is your general assessment of his job as president?

Ron Paul: Mediocre; probably not worse than the other options. But I don't think presidents really have much control. I think the deep state – the people behind the scenes and the shadow government, who control the monetary system, who control our foreign policy and the welfare state, and are connected to the media and the military-industrial complex. – I don't think the presidency is as important as it's made out to be. But everybody talks about it; it's a political thing, and they keep churning the issue and directing everybody to ask 'is Trump a good guy or a bad guy, and are we going to impeach him or what's going to happen', rather than [asking] what kind of philosophy do we have: why do we have this philosophy of welfare-warfare, spend money, run up debt and let the central bank print all that money.

California Water Agency Officials Charged With Burying Hazardous Waste And Corruption

California's attorney general has charged five former and current employees of the Panoche Water District in central California with felonies, including using public funds for personal items and illegally burying barrels of hazardous waste.

The Department of Toxic Substances Control at California's Environmental Protection Agency says it found 86 drums, each holding between 35 and 55 gallons of "chlorine, caustic soda, iron chloride and a mixture of used antifreeze, used solvents, and used oil."

California Attorney General Xavier Becerra accused former Panoche Water District General Manager Dennis Falaschi and former employees Jack Hurley and Dubby West of disposing of the chemicals at an unauthorized site, specifically burying them "in a pit or in the soil at the Panoche Water District yard" near Firebaugh, Calif.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

How in the name of heaven was this allowed to go on for so long, without anyone in the State of California being aware?!?!?

Assault Weapons Not Protected by Second Amendment, Federal Appeals Court Rules

Maryland's ban on 45 kinds of assault weapons and its 10-round limit on gun magazines were upheld Tuesday by a federal appeals court in a decision that met with a strongly worded dissent.

Judge William Traxler issued a dissent. By concluding the Second Amendment doesn't even apply, Traxler wrote, the majority "has gone to greater lengths than any other court to eviscerate the constitutionally guaranteed right to keep and bear arms." He also wrote that the court did not apply a strict enough review on the constitutionality of the law.

"For a law-abiding citizen who, for whatever reason, chooses to protect his home with a semi-automatic rifle instead of a semi-automatic handgun, Maryland's law clearly imposes a significant burden on the exercise of the right to arm oneself at home, and it should at least be subject to strict scrutiny review before it is allowed to stand," Traxler wrote.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would like to hope that this case goes all the way up to the Supreme Court, and gets heard at that level.

SILENCE! Twitter, YouTube scrubbing all content and banning all users who question the official (false) narrative on the Florida school shooting

A few years from now, looking back on why Twitter collapsed and YouTube was abandoned by every intelligent person, we’ll remember what these totalitarian tech giants did in February, 2018. Starting a few days ago, both Twitter and YouTube began scrubbing all videos and tweets that don’t follow the “official narrative” on the Florida school shooting.

Anyone who questions the wisdom of the school students-turned-propagandists — who were all probably eating Tide pods a week ago — is immediately banned and silenced. Only one side of this “debate” is allowed to exist: The side that worships the lunatic Left’s demands that all law-abiding Americans surrender their self-defense firearms because a group of traumatized school kids were shot at by their own lunatic classmate.

FROM DRUG TOLERANCE TO ‘NARCO STATE’: MIGRANT GANGS & HANDS-OFF POLICING THREATEN DUTCH LIBERALISM

The Netherlands’ permissive drugs policy has been hailed worldwide, but immigrant-dominated crime gangs are taking advantage to create a “parallel mafia society.” Yet they are not the only ones who created this crisis.
A report by the Dutch police union based on interviews with 400 detectives, released last week, read less like a blueprint for tackling crime, but rather a concession of defeat.

A sample of quotes from interviewees: “In 25 years, I’ve seen small dealers grow to large businessmen with respected investors [and] political connections.” “Five years ago a contract killer would cost €50,000 [US$61,000] now one can be found for €5,000. It’s supply and demand.” “The Netherlands has become a narco state in the past three decades. We do not see what remains invisible, but underground it has been growing.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is a shame, happening in what used to be one of the gems of Europe.

The Dutch people have to take the initiative, and move beyond the status quo right now in order to get these problems under control.

SAME OLD: NOTORIOUS WHITE HELMETS REPORT A CHEMICAL ATTACK, BLAME DAMASCUS AGAIN

An infamous NGO that was repeatedly accused of falsifying information about its operations and essentially working as a propaganda outlet for anti-government militants in Syria, now claims that Damascus deployed chemical weapons in Eastern Ghouta.

The notorious White Helmets group claims that the Syrian government deployed chlorine gas against the town of Al-Shifoniya town in Eastern Ghouta, killing one child and causing “widespread suffocation” among the local civilians, Anadolu Agency reports.

The White Helmets, a group that styles itself as an NGO seeking to ease the plight of civilians in Syria suffering from the ongoing conflict in the country, has previously been accused of falsifying information about its work in Syria and staging “rescue” attempts in its propaganda videos.

Earlier the Russian Defense Ministry warned that militant groups in Eastern Ghouta were preparing a false flag attack in an attempt to blame Damascus for using chemical weapons against civilians.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The logical question which comes to mind is, why would Al Assad's forces do this, when they are nearly at the point of wiping out the jihadists with Russia's help?!?

The short answer is, they wouldn't; the White Helmets cannot be given a shred of credibility at this point, and it is more likely something which they themselves, or their associates, have been doing.

COPS ARE TAKING PEOPLE’S FIREARMS, SELLING THEM TO MAKE A PROFIT AND IT’S 100% LEGAL

As calls for gun control increase among the parties that claim it would put an end to mass shootings, an investigation is revealing that state sheriff’s deputies are taking the firearms they have seized from individuals and re-selling them to generate revenue—only to find that some of the guns go on to be used in other crimes.

According to the results of an investigation reported by the Associated Press, in the state of Washington alone, “more than a dozen of the guns sold by law enforcement since 2010 ended up in new crimes.”

The firearms are also typically sold to arms dealers in large batches, with a recent lot of 331 guns being transferred from the Washington State Patrol to a gun dealer in Knoxville, Tennessee. Included in that batch were at least five assault rifles.

FL Shooting Survivor: Sheriff 'Virtue-Signaling Against the NRA', Must Resign After Officers' Inaction

A survivor of the Florida school shooting spoke out against the Broward County sheriff as well as those who are injecting gun control politics into the tragedy.

Kashuv said Sheriff Scott Israel "outraged" him with his conduct at Wednesday's televised town hall event.

Broward Sheriff Scott Israel facing calls for his ouster after Florida school shooting

Florida Gov. Rick Scott is facing a growing number of calls to remove Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel from his position over the department’s response to the high school shooting that killed 17 people.

Florida House Speaker Richard Corcoran, R-Pasco County, sent a letter to Scott on Sunday asking the governor to suspend Israel. A day earlier, State Rep. Bill Hager, R-Boca Raton, urged Scott to relieve Israel from his duties for “neglect of duty and incompetence," the Palm Beach Post reported.

In addition, a survivor of the shooting told Fox News on Sunday that the sheriff had to go.

“He failed to act on so many different levels and him himself, he is responsible for this massive failure. It could have been easily stopped both by the FBI and the sheriff's department had they acted,” Kyle Kashuv told “America's News HQ.”

45-minute video of top US school safety expert on Florida shooting lies: security cameras with 27-minute delay? Officers with guns stand down? Multiple students claim multiple shooters? Faculty meeting THAT MORNING warning they might have active shooter?!

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

John B. Wells interviews Wolfgang Halbig, retired law officer, school principal, and leading expert to train school districts with active shooters walks you through the damning evidence in this article’s title (45 minutes):

More points:
The school’s CCTV system is designed for school security to have visuals for school safety, obviously. However, this school claims to have chosen to create a 27-minute delay in the visual feed that is obviously criminal negligence defeating the primary purpose of instant visuals.
Three sheriffs and one armed security guard waited outside the school during gunfire (here, here) in criminal negligence and failure to perform their primary duty of their jobs.
At least two students are on record (here, here) that CNN scripted questions against the 2nd Amendment to the US Constitution, and against the Founders in the American Revolution defending their guns when their own government came to take them.

FLASHBACK: Fort Lauderdale airport shooting suspect had visited FBI office in Alaska last year

An Iraq War veteran who had complained that the government was forcing him to watch Islamic State videos pulled a gun from his checked bag and opened fire Friday afternoon at Fort Lauderdale’s international airport, killing five people and injuring eight, authorities said.

Federal law enforcement officials said that Santiago had told the FBI that the CIA was forcing him to watch Islamic State propaganda videos to control his mind. After interviewing Santiago’s relatives and conducting other reviews and checking with other agencies, the bureau closed its assessment of him.

The head of the NRA defines his new enemies: The ‘violent left’ and judges who ‘do violence’ to the Constitution

For those wondering how the organization would respond to this new era in which there was no tangible political opposition to push off of, LaPierre answered the question in his speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference on Friday. The new enemy? A nebulous and vastly overstated violent left, working in partnership with the “left-wing media” and a judiciary that does “violence to the Constitution’s separation of powers” by opposing President Trump’s executive orders.

That argument was previewed with a video the organization released Thursday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am putting this article up, because I saw a complete travesty of what Wayne La Pierre had to say at CPAC at Haaretz this morning, and felt that all of our readers should see this version, versus the version which came from an actual transcript of the speech.

La Pierre Identified the Enemies of his Organisation - and of America, as Jews

The Haaretz smear begins with the following statements:

"LaPierre vowed that the NRA intends to go far beyond its role as a gun lobby, to warn Americans that all of their individual freedoms are being destroyed by a condescending intellectual elite. “I promise you this – the NRA will not only speak out, the NRA will speak out louder and we will speak out stronger than ever before,” with its own television station and expanded media operations to resist “the Socialist corruption of our government.”

Yes, that was stated in his speech; but Haaretz goes on to insinuate and elaborate that La Pierre had said things he did not.

Haaretz continues: "Again and again in his speech to the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Maryland, LaPierre identified the enemies of the NRA, and of America, as Jews – from Karl Marx to Bernie Sanders, from George Soros to former New York mayor Michael Bloomberg.

LaPierre singled out Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer of New York as one of the Democrats who are “liars to the core.”

To the best of my read of this article, only two Jewish people were named; they were Rahm Emanuel, the mayor of Chicago, whose city has become ungovernable because of the monstrous crime wave there and George Soros, the billionaire pushing unrestricted immigration from the Middle East and Africa upon Europe, which has produced ghastly results for the countries of Europe and their born citizens.

Were these men criticised because of their religion?!? Absolutely not. Were they criticised for what they had done, and their philosophical and political stances? Yes, which is a completely reasonable, and non-religion- bashing thing to do. Again, look at the two takes on La Pierre's address to CPAC, and decide for yourselves.

And what I thought was hysterically ironic was, that the dailystormer, a very vireulently ultra-right blog, ran with the Haaretz story as though it was absolutely correct.

Fearmongering by any side, needs to be met with cold hard facts, which I believe La Pierre delivered.

So who is the real fearmonger here, La Pierre... or the editors of Haaretz who concocted this codswallop?!?

RANCHER TAKES FEDS TO COURT OVER CAMERA THEY PLACED ON HIS PROPERTY WITHOUT PERMISSION

Ricardo Palacios, a 74-year old rancher, had gotten used to Customs and Border Protection officials tromping across his south Texas ranch lands without permission over the years. But finding a wireless surveillance camera set up in one of his trees? Not OK. Upon discovering the device, Palacios removed it immediately. It wasn't long after that he started receiving calls from CBP and the Texas Rangers demanding that he turn the camera over to them or face charges.

Having taken enough of their shit, instead of turning the camera over, Palacios gave the feds something else instead: a lawsuit.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Palacio's suit is completely reasonable; no one should be above the law in this country, and that means State and Federal Agents as well.

CDC OFFICIAL RESPONSIBLE FOR HANDLING ZIKA AND EBOLA EMERGENCIES MYSTERIOUSLY GOES MISSING

35-year-old Timothy Cunningham, a high ranking employee with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has been missing for nearly two weeks. Cunningham went home from work claiming he was sick on February 12 and has not been seen or heard from since.

According to the CDC, Cunningham is a graduate of the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and a commander in the Public Health Service who was responsible for responding to and supervising emergency situations with the Ebola virus and the Zika virus.

Last week, the Atlanta Police Department issued a missing persons notice through their Facebook page, and since it has received nearly 2,000 shares, but still no leads.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I know that this is a very sang foid evaluation, but I have to wonder what he may have found out about the diseases he was tasked with preventing, that the CDC didn't want to get out.

Unfortunately, I believe that the chances of seeing this guy alive, with a reasonable explanation of why he was out of communication, are zero to none.

SEOUL DEFIES WTO RULING, VOWS TO KEEP BAN ON JAPAN'S FUKUSHIMA SEAFOOD

South Korea vows to maintain its restrictions on Japanese seafood imports and appeal the WTO’s ruling against additional radiation tests and bans on fishery products introduced in the wake of the 2011 Fukushima nuclear disaster.
In 2015, Tokyo filed a complaint with the World Trade Organization (WTO) challenging South Korea’s import bans that were introduced on certain fish caught in Japanese waters over fears of radiation following the meltdown of three reactors at the Fukushima power plant in March 2011. In its official complaint, Japan also challenged additional testing and certification requirements placed by Seoul on Japanese fish caught from eight prefectures near Fukushima.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Oh, REALLY?!?!?

I think that Robert Azevedo, Chair of the WTO, and his close family should be required to eat Fukushima Fish for at least one year, 2 nights every week straight, and see how it affects their health!!

It's always the people whose health is not generally affected by radiated food, making the rules about who is compelled to eat that food. South Koreans officials are absolutely within their rights to refuse food they believe to be unsafe for their people.

Go... SOUTH KOREA!!

I wish the US government was as robust in keeping its citizens the hell away from all GMO products, which can cause sickness, and even death, ultimately.

But of course, Big Ag and Big Pharma are such generous contributors come re-election time, they don't dare!!

15,000 sealed indictments = .01% arrests? None in my network of experts knows. Impatient and relatively alone as humble messengers? Own that price of leadership

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

"Work as if everything depends on us. Pray as if everything depends on God." ~ Augustine of Hippo

In the last few months, I’ve written of sealed federal indictments totaling ~5,000, then 10,000, and now pushing 15,000 (and here at “The real story is the impending arrest of the deep state”).

Among my network of experts in politics, economics, academics, and activists, none of us can point to objective data to demonstrate what this means.

A best case scenario is upcoming .01% arrests for ongoing and OBVIOUS crimes annually killing millions, harming billions, and looting trillions (with ongoing documentation below). A worst case scenario is upcoming arrests of leading activists as “domestic terrorists.”

Sheriff-tied political committee accepts money from convicted felon Scott Israel booster convicted in tax evasion, gun cases

PEMBROKE PARK, Fla. - A political committee supporting Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel has raised $96,000 so far, much of it at an April fundraiser for Israel at developer and garbage company owner Ron Bergeron's ranch.

One of those leading the money list is developer Yoram Izhak, who is listed on campaign filings for "Citizens for Effective Law Enforcement" as giving $5,000 personally, with another $15,000 coming from companies listed at the building he owns in North Miami.

But what may be troubling for Broward County's top cop is that Izhak is also a convicted felon who was indicted 10 years ago in a massive organized crime case.

The crime ring was known as "The Corporation" or the "Cuban Mafia" and was allegedly involved in cocaine trafficking, arson, gambling and murder.

When Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel Was Accused of Corruption, He Responded: 'Lions Don't Care About the Opinions of Sheep'

Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel—the man whose agency failed to prevent the Parkland massacre despite having received a tip last November that Nikolas Cruz was plotting a mass shooting—has been accused of public corruption.

Two years ago, the Sun Sentinel reported that Israel was rewarding top political supporters by giving them and their family members cushy jobs doing public relations and community outreach for the Broward County Sheriff's Office. One such position, outreach manager, paid out a salary of $78,489. The person who got that job was the husband of Israel's campaign manager.

Breaking!: A report released Friday claims four of Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel’s deputies waited outside Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School while the attack was occurring.

Sheriff Israel is finished!

Now CNN reports that the Coral Springs police officers claim three other Broward County deputies were outside the school but failed to go inside as well. They quote “Coral Springs sources” who said the three “deputies had their pistols drawn and were behind their vehicles” when Coral Springs officers arrived. They said “not one of [the deputies] had gone into the school.”

The sources indicate other Broward County deputies arrived on scene, and two of those new arrivals joined with Coral Springs officers and entered the building.

The sources said, “Coral Springs police were stunned and upset that the four original Broward County Sheriff’s deputies who were first on the scene did not appear to join them as they entered the school.”

The FBI Is Corrupt And Incompetent – Pelosi Says, "Give 'Em A Raise!"

That’s exactly what Congressional Democratic Leadership wants done. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer have redefined chutzpah to the point of insanity.

Not three days after the FBI’s gross malfeasance and incompetence in their mishandling of the Parkland Florida massacre, these cretins have the unmitigated gall to publicly ask for another $300 million to add to the FBI’s budget.

But, is that $300 million to deal with real domestic threats to the lives and safety of Americans?

No.

It’s to combat Russian Trolls.

Seriously, I kid you not.

This is a classic example of these people having a narrative prepped and scheduled to wrest control of the news cycle regardless of the optics. The goal is to create layer upon layer of fake news replete with fake (read: paid by George Soros) outrage — that’s what RussiaGate is all about.

Debt On Track To Destroy The American Middle Class

Economists report the household debt to be at its highest in decades. Yet, at the same time, we are being told that the economy is doing great. Does anyone see a serious contradiction?

In fact, the current economy only favors the wealthy owing to their flourishing financial assets such as stocks and bonds. Owing to the lack of real assets such as property and commodities, the middle and lower classes are becoming overwhelmed due to the serious consequences of the spending/debt cycle.

American consumers have a collective outstanding household debt of about $13.15 trillion of which nearly $1 trillion is the credit card debt alone, households are truly on a debt binge. These figures should be a wake-up call to all the Americans. The convulsive household debt has surpassed the bubble of 2008 and is still escalating. The economy may not be doing so great, after all.

War Preparations Against Venezuela as Election Nears

Black Alliance for Peace (BAP) published a newsletter that reported “troubling news of an impending military assault on the sovereign nation of Venezuela by states and forces allied with the United States.” Ajamu Baraka, the director, said the US is concerned that President Maduro will win the April 22 election, which would mean six more years in office. BAP urges people to include “No War On Venezuela” in actions being planned from February 16-23 for the 115th anniversary of the United States occupying Guantanamo.

Is the Path to War Through Border Disputes?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I called it correctly on Tidd's visit to Columbia a couple of weeks back; that plans were being discussed for "regime change" in Venezuela, if Maduro is re-elected.

The US government certainly wants to get its hands around Venezuela's vast oil reserves, and insure that the country only accepts the US dollar as payment for that oil.

Donald Trump on School Shootings & Gun Control in 2000: "I support the ban on assault weapons"

Donald Trump in his book 'The America We Deserve,' (2000.) "It's often argued that the American murder rate is high because guns are more available here than in other countries. After a tragedy like the massacre at Columbine High School, anyone could feel that it is too easy for Americans to get their hands on weapons. But nobody has a good solution. This is another issue where you see the extremes of the two existing major parties. Democrats want to confiscate all guns, which is a dumb idea because only the law-abiding citizens would turn in their guns and the bad guys would be the only ones left armed. The Republicans walk the NRA line and refuse even limited restrictions. I generally oppose gun control, but I support the ban on assault weapons and I also support a slightly longer waiting period to purchase a gun. With today's Internet technology we should be able to tell within seventy-two hours if a potential gun owner has a record."

mORE DRONES HEADED TO SOUTH KOREA

Recent reports by South Korean news media claim that the US will deploy attack drones to the Korean Peninsula in the next few months.

Twelve attack drones that can target North Korean leaders and military targets will be deployed in March or April, South Korean newspaper Chosun Ilbo reported this week.

According to the report, a hangar has already been constructed for the Gray Eagle drones. In addition, support facilities and personnel have reportedly already arrived at the US air base at Kunsan on the west coast.

The General Atomics MQ-1C Gray Eagle is an unmanned aircraft system developed by General Atomics Aeronautical Systems for the US Army. The Gray Eagle, which has an 18-yard wingspan, can conduct various missions including attack, reconnaissance, surveillance and infiltration. Its 248-mile range gives it enough reach to cover most of North Korean territory.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF in fact these reports are true, North Korea is still in play as a target for US military action against it later this year.

If the US takes offensive action right after the games, China will be forced to support North Korea militarily.

IDF, US troops get ready for drill to simulate massive missile attack on Israel

The exercise will largely be performed through advanced computer simulations, though it will also include some real-world activities.

In total, some 4,500 soldiers from the two militaries will take part in the exercise — 2,500 of them from the United States’ European Command (US EUCOM) and 2,000 from the Israel Defense Forces. This is a substantial increase from the 2016 exercise, in which some 3,200 soldiers took part.

The Juniper Cobra exercise is scheduled to begin on March 4 and will formally run until March 15, though some American troops will stay in Israel and continue training with the IDF until the end of the month, the army said.

The threat from ballistic and guided missiles is one of the most significant threats facing Israel, and Israeli officials say it is growing.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One false flag, to be blamed on either Lebanon's Hezbullah or Iran, will kick of a major Middle East war, with American troops already in place for battle.

And note the timing of the exercise: it starts precisely when the AIPAC conference kicks off kicks off in DC, which is 4 March to 6 March.

I do not believe that the timing of this exercise is a coincidence; with Netanyahu expected to be indicted for corruption, he may well be moving the timing ahead for such a false flag to be put in place, to distract from his legal woes, and give him some bloody shirts to wave about at AIPAC, as the justification for going into Lebanon, Iran, or perhaps both.

Trump Administration Says 2001 AUMF Authorizes Endless Iraq, Syria Presence

New letters from the State and Defense Departments lay out the case, such as it is. The arguments in both letters are very similar. The 2002 AUMF for Iraq doesn’t have any caveats. It just says Iraq is a threat, and that means the US can do whatever they want to, with, or in Iraq. Syria, where the US is not only not invited, but troops are said to be there to advance regime change, is a lot trickier.

The argument is that because ISIS still sort of exists, the US can keep troops in Syria just in case ISIS becomes a serious threat, and while there, any time Syria forces get kind of close, the US can attack them “in self-defense.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

President Trump has proven himself a far cry from Candidate Trump, who suggested that these endless, immoral, extraconstitutional confrontations should be ended, and gave us hope that the War Party was losing its influence in the Bowels of Power in DC.

Not so; and now President Trump is doubling down in Afghanistan as well:

JUDGE: IRAQIS SUFFICIENTLY ALLEGE TORTURE BY MILITARY CONTRACTOR AND MAY PROCEED WITH LAWSUIT

A federal judge refused to dismiss a lawsuit brought against CACI Premier Technology for its alleged involvement in Iraqi torture at the Abu Ghraib prison.

“CACI personnel substantially aided the military personnel responsible for directly carrying out the abuses, including directing them on how to set the conditions of confinement, ordering them to employ various abusive tactics, and helping them conceal the abuses,” Judge Leonie Brinkema stated [PDF].

“Moreover, upper-level management at CACI substantially aided these continued abuses by refusing to inform the military of reports that CACI and military personnel were abusing detainees and by continuing to employ—and even promote—interrogators engaging in the abuses.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Good on Judge Brinkema!!

Torture is counterproductive, in terms of creating actionable intelligence, and should be shunned by all civilized societies.

Although looking at the sorry state of the Unhinged Survielled States of America today, "civilized" would not be the first adjective I would use to describe it.

US MAY OPEN PATH FOR SAUDI ARABIA TO ACQUIRE NUCLEAR WEAPONS

Saudi Arabia is moving swiftly to become the next country in the Middle East with nuclear power. The Kingdom is on the verge of striking a deal with the US for the purchase of nuclear reactors despite concerns over its refusal to accept stringent restrictions against the proliferation of nuclear weapons.

Crown Prince Mohamed Bin Salman, who is the de facto ruler of the country, has ambitious plans to diversify the country’s energy source and is in the market to purchase nuclear power reactors. The potential for lucrative deals is too good to be missed and the Trump administration is thought to be mulling over loosening US law to win Saudi contracts, worth billions. The Kingdom has refused to be bound by stringent US regulations that restrict reprocessing and enriching uranium for the production of nuclear weapons.

With competitors like Russia and China waiting in the wings, Trump is keen to strike a deal with the Saudi’s and breathe new life into the American nuclear industry.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

President Trump, a word, please: you need to look at the long term consequences of such a move.

IF in fact the US wants to sell nuclear reactors here, please make sure that they are the kind which produce no materials which can be reprocessed and create enriched uranium for the production of nuclear weapons. Thorium reactors are clean energy reactors, which won't do this.

And you have to know where the next evolution of such a process will go, if you don't do this; the creation of a nuclear-armed Saudi Arabia.

Please remember: Saudi Arabia is an absolute monarchy, obeying Sharia law, and has no constitution whatsoever. And against whom would they use such weapons?!? Perhaps, against Iran, their existential enemy in the region?!? Perhaps, against Israel?!?

Yes, I know you like Prince Salman, and he has become one of your your BFFs in the Middle East.

But President Trump, I need to ask you; what moves has Prince Salman actually made toward turning the monarchy into a constitutional monarchy?!? The short answer is, zero, nada, zip.

This will probably generate an arms race in the Middle East like nothing you have ever seen before, sprouting MAD capabilities in countries like... wait for it... perhaps Bahrain, whose government's view on human rights is just to the right of those of Attila the Hun, and whose repressive government, monarchy, and supreme court have just formally obliterated all oposition to the ruling party.

Top Bahraini court upholds dissolution of opposition al-Wefaq party

What, sir, will a nuclear-armed to the teeth Middle East mean for the possibilities for peace for the next generations?!?

I respectfully believe that you and your advisors need to think such a decision through to its logical conclusions, and in selling Saudi Arabia nuclear reactors, that we not sell them the ones whose biproducts can create nuclear weapons.

South Africa’s new president, Cyril Ramaphosa, has pledged to return the lands owned by white farmers since the 1600s to the black citizens of the country.

The government plans to accelerate land redistribution through expropriation without compensation.

“The expropriation of land without compensation is envisaged as one of the measures that we will use to accelerate the redistribution of land to black South Africans,” said Ramaphosa, who was sworn into office to succeed Jacob Zuma as president last week.

RUSSIAN TROLLS ARE FLOODING SOCIAL MEDIA WITH MESSAGES MEANT TO INCREASE TENSIONS IN U.S.

NPR's Mary Louise Kelly speaks with Sen. James Lankford, R-Okla., about how Russian bots are still flooding social media, including fomenting American tension over the Florida school shootings, and what he thinks should be done about it.

The aftermath of a school shooting in Florida, NFL players taking a knee during the national anthem and the 2016 presidential election - these have all been targets of Russian internet trolls. Just hours after that Florida shooting last week, Russian bots got busy on social media posting pro-gun-rights messages, also posting pro-gun-control messages. It's the latest example of a phenomenon documented in special counsel Robert Mueller's indictment released on Friday of Russian trolls and bots working to deepen divisions in U.S. society. Oklahoma Republican Senator James Lankford has been talking about this since the NFL national anthem controversy last fall.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Oh, really?!?

And by what professional computer training did Senator Lankford come to this determination?

Let us take a look at this man's educational history, from wickipedia.com:

"Lankford was born March 4, 1968, in Dallas, Texas,[6] the son of Linda Joyce (née House) and James Wesley Lankford.[7][8] His mother was an elementary school librarian.[1] His maternal grandparents owned a small dry-cleaning business, his father and paternal grandparents a dairy farm. His stepfather was a career employee of AC Delco, the parts division of General Motors.[9]

His parents divorced when he was four; his mother and older brother and he lived for a time in his grandparents' garage apartment. He became a Christian at eight. His mother remarried when he was twelve, and the family moved to Garland with his stepfather.[1] Lankford attended Lakeview Centennial High School in Garland. While at Lakeview Lankford participated in the Close Up Washington civic education program. He earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Secondary Education (specializing in Speech and History) at University of Texas at Austin in 1990, and a master's degree in Divinity at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in 1994."

Sorry, but I do not see one computer-centric class in his education, to enable him to be be able to make the authentic claim that these are "Russian Bots", attempting to "deepen divisions in US society."

Does the man even have the faintest clue about spoofing IPs, to make a computer communication "appear" to be from another country when it absolutely is not?

This is more demonizing of Russia, without a reasonable, trustworthy analysis by someone who understands the tecnology down to the bare metal.

Demonization of another country, coupled with sanctions against it, are usually preludes to war, which is where the US government activity is headed in this case.

And frankly, in preparation for such a war, I woiuld not bet against seeing the draft reinstated in this country.

SYRIA - THE TWO EAST-GHOUTA CAMPAIGNS - ONE IS FOR LIBERATION, THE OTHER TO SAVE TERRORISTS

The Syrian government and its allies decided to finally liberate east-Ghouta from the grip of the Takfiri terrorists. Some 25,000 government troops are assembling now and preparatory artillery fire and aerial bombing has begun. The Syrian air force dropped leaflets to point anyone who wants to leave the area to designated humanitarian crossing points.

The western propaganda is repeating its "save Aleppo" campaign to save the terrorists in Ghouta. In the process the western aligned countries are making a joke (vid) out of the UN Security Council. There is no mention in this campaign of any Takfiri and no picture of any of the sectarian militants who daily kill random people in Damascus. This rings hollow writes Robert Fisk.

FLORIDA SHOOTING SURVIVOR DOUBLES DOWN: CNN'S ENTIRE TOWNHALL WAS SCRIPTED

The latest embarrassing blow to CNN's (already tattered) credibility emerged last night when Colton Haab, the student who first exposed CNN for pushing him to ask a scripted question during Wednesday night's town hall appeared on Tucker Carlson Tonight to offer even more shocking details about CNN's conduct.

Yesterday, we noted that Haab, a Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student and shooting survivor, had come forward to say he decided not to attend Wednesday night's CNN town hall after CNN producers gave him a pre-scripted question for him to ask.

THE ROTHSCHILD ORGAN AND OCTOPUTIN - PROJECTION OR ENVY?

At least 26% of the British Economist is owned by the Rothschild family. Lynn Forester de Rothschild and her spouse Evelyn de Rothschild are sitting on the board of the Economist Group. Is the publishing of the Putin squid by the Rothschild organ some kind of psychological projection? Or is it envy?

Selco on Martial Law: Forget your “movie illusions about being a freedom fighter”

Let's talk about martial law. This is when the normal law of the land is suspended and the authority comes from the military or federal government.

It turns out that many of us have some serious misconceptions of what it's really like to live through a martial law situation. I asked Selco, who has personally been through it, to clear up the myths and tell us what it's actually like. You can always count on him for the unvarnished truth, and that's what we need to be prepared to survive extreme situations.

California Dreaming: Police have no obligation to protect any individual from harm

"Do you believe that law enforcement officers have a duty to protect you from harm?" The correct answer is found in countless appellate court decisions, where the police lawyers themselves always successfully argue that they are NOT responsible for your safety. That raises the question, Why is the public so misinformed about such a fundamental issue involving public safety?

YouTube Has Informed Me That It Will Soon Delete The Richie Allen Show Channel.(Too Late!)

YouTube operates a three strikes and you are out policy. Content creators are told that if they violate community standards three times, their channel and all its content will be deleted. Two weeks ago The Richie Allen Show received a strike. Incredibly, I was informed that I had violated the bullying and harassment guidelines. The video in question was of an interview I conducted with Wolfgang Halbig over two years ago about The Sandy Hook school shooting. There was nothing harassing about it, there was certainly no bullying. I repeatedly challenged Wolfgang in the interview and pressed him for evidence to support his theory. Nevertheless that was strike one. YouTube said that as punishment, I couldn't live stream for three months. I don't live stream anyway. But of course I was worried. I had been warned repeatedly, by commercial presenters and producers and former colleagues of mine, that the show would be targeted.

CENSORSHIP ALERT! Youtube Deleted The Richie Allen Show Channel

GA: Earlier this evening, Youtube deleted The Richie Allen Show channel, one of the best internet program on the net. You may want to ask yourself what is left of our elementary freedom. With Youtube and Google around, the idea of an open society feels like a remote nostalgia...

Update: The Richie Allen Show YouTube Channel Has Now Been Deleted

That's it then. Further to my post this morning (you might want to read it if you missed it), Google/YouTube has deleted my channel, citing a third community guideline strike. This time it was my interview with Jim Fetzer last Monday. Jim came on to state that in his opinion, there were anomalies with the media reporting of the school shooting in Parkland, Florida. The interview can be heard here. You can hear me repeatedly challenge Jim, as I always do with any guest that makes a highly controversial claim about a shooting or a terrorist attack. Jim concedes several times that his opinion is just his opinion and that I might in fact be right in believing the narrative. Yet Google/YouTube claims it is harassment or bullying. Of whom exactly? The victims families or the people of that community? That's ridiculous.

Google & Facebook Censorship Only Draws More Attention To Alt-Media & Galvanises Its Producers!

[Richie Allen writes:] I just wanted to say thanks to everybody who sent kind messages of support for the show, in the wake of Google/YouTube's decision to delete my channel. I noticed last night too, that some of the most vocal critics of YouTube's behaviour, were in fact people that have been critical of me and the show in the past. Bravo! That's the bloody point! Argue, debate, disagree, criticise loudly, but never, ever marginalise or ban! I've banged on about this for years. Stand up for the right to free speech of those you disagree with, as much as those whose opinions you share!

Operation Mockingbird

Operation Mockingbird is a CIA project to subvert the original mission of the news media, to control corporate media for its own purposes.

Origins
Operation Mockingbird began in 1950, organized by Allen Dulles and Cord Meyer.[1] The CIA spent today's equivalent of one billion dollars a year hiring journalists from Corporate Media including CBS, The New York Times, ABC, NBC, Newsweek, Associated Press and others, to promote their point of view. The original operation reportedly involved some 3,000 CIA operatives and hired over 400 journalists. [2]

FLASHBACK: US Govt Just Legalized Operation Mockingbird — FBI Can Now Impersonate the Media

Bad cases make bad law.

FBI agents conducting undercover investigations have now been given the green light to impersonate journalists, the Justice Department determined last week — effectively legalizing the government’s most notorious propaganda program, Operation Mockingbird.

Last Thursday, the Department of Justice Office of Inspector General published what’s become the subject of outrage for journalists, civil and constitutional rights advocates, and legal experts — “A Review of the FBI’s Impersonation of a Journalist in a Criminal Investigation.”

Venezuelan COPS Kidnapped Pro Athlete’s Elderly Mom and Held Her For Ransom…and This ISN’T Unusual

This article is quite a reality check for the folks who think that the police will be there to save them after the SHTF.

In fact, unless the cops are people of integrity, it's not at all uncommon that they will use their training and weapons to victimize the people that were depending on them for protection. 

Take, for example, the case of a pro baseball player's elderly mother. Guess who kidnapped her and held her for ransom?

Local Police Let Florida Shooter Off The Hook When He Said He Was "Going To Get His Gun"

CNN's FOIA of Broward County 911 records has produced a steady stream of scoops about Parkland, Fla. school shooter Nikolas Cruz fleshing out much of what is publicly known about Cruz's background and the various reports made warning the FBI and other authorities about his threatening behavior.

The report draws on one specific incident that unfolded in the immediate aftermath of Cruz's mother's death, when Cruz and his brother Zachary Cruz were living in Palm Beach County with Rocxanne Deschamps, a former neighbor who had been close to the family.

After one particularly violent outburst, Cruz said he was going to Dick's to pick up the AR-15 he had recently paid for, and that he would come back to attack her.

The police were warned by Deschamps, who told them about Cruz's violent past - that he'd "used a gun against people before" and had "put the gun to others' heads in the past" - but still they did nothing.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

ARE YOU FLIPPING KIDDING ME?!?

With all these threats of violence against others a lietmotif in his life, his kid was screaming for an intervention.

He should have been placed in a locked mental facility, with his prescriptions thoroughly evaluated for what they were contributing to his behaviour, and any and all guns confiscated by the police after a legal warrant was issued to search the house.

Anyone on these kinds of medications should NEVER have been able to pass a background check in the first place, period, end of discussion.


Was this kid a real-life Manchurian Candidate?!?!

Spotlight: Peace far away as showdown approaches Syria's Eastern Ghouta

The rebel-held Eastern Ghouta in the countryside of Syrian capital Damascus has witnessed intense airstrikes and shelling as military showdown is approaching.

The spark of the recent unprecedented violence was ignited a couple of months ago when al-Qaida-linked groups launched an offensive against a key military base in the city of Harasta in the rebel-held Eastern Ghouta countryside of Damascus, prompting a counter military offensive in that area.

The attacks at the times were coupled with rebels shelling of the capital Damascus, and Syrian airstrikes targeting the rebel positions in Eastern Ghouta.

But the situation has dramatically worsened in recent days when a wide-scale military offensive on Eastern Ghouta was in place, preparing to end the presence of al-Qaida-linked groups in that area.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

(Sigh) This is the worst kind of war; in packed, urban areas, where it can be impossible to detect friend from foe, and innocents get killed on a routine basis.

I sincerely hope (and pray) that the Russians, in concert with the Syrian military, have formulated a strategy which can guarantee the minimum numbers of civilian casualties possible here, but understand that this will be extraordinarily difficult.

Russian Center for Syrian Reconciliation Comes Under Massive Fire

Sputnik has received reports that the Russian Center for Syrian Reconciliation, a peace monitoring and humanitarian organization jointly run by Russia and Turkey, came under attack on Tuesday. No Russian casualties were reported from the incident, but Syrian civilians have been reported dead and injured.

"Residential areas, hotels in Damascus, as well as the Russian Center for Syrian reconciliation came under massive shelling by illegal armed groups operating in East Ghouta area today, causing significant infrastructural damage and casualties among the civilian population," the center said in a statement.

"There are no casualties among the Russian military personnel," the statement added.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This was most probably done by saboteurs who do not want peace in Syria to happen; they could have been jihadists, US forces, or Israelis; all are equally potentially culpable in this act.

Lavrov: US admits envoys assigned to dissuade partners from doing business with RussiaMore:http://tass.com/politics/991111

Earlier, the US Department of State spokesperson said all of its diplomatic missions abroad were tasked with talking their host countries out of business contacts with Russia.

The US State Department has acknowledged that US ambassadors around the world have instructions to talk governments out of cooperation with Russia, Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said after negotiations with his Slovenian counterpart Karl Erjavec on Wednesday.

"Just yesterday the US State Department spokesperson proudly said in public that all American ambassadors in all countries of the world without exception have strict instructions: to go and demand every day that certain states do not cooperate with Russia," Lavrov said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Absoflippinglutely unbelievable, but perfectly predictable for a country (the US government, of course) which is girding up its geopolitical, propaganda, economic, and military loins for a war against Russia, which has done utterly nothing to deserve this kind of treatment.

The Russian government meddling in the last election?!? Complete codswallop, conjured up by a desperate DNC, which never believed Hillary wouldn't be elected by the American people.

Sorry, DNC; you threw your lot in with a candidate who had more baggage than does Kim Kardashian on a photo shoot!!

Annexing Crimea after the 2014 putsch, which the US government helped orchestrate, throwing Yanukovich under the proverbial bus and annointing Poroshenko as Ukrainian president, in an election more crooked than a dog's hind leg?!?? It was Crimea, holing two referendums post-putsch,
asking their people if they wanted to stay with Ukraine, or petition the Russian Federation to become a member. Crimeans voted overwhelmingly to petition the Russian Federation, and the Russian Federation accepted the petition.

THERE WAS NO ANNEXATION, PERIOD, END OF DISCUSSION.

BRANDON SMITH: MASS SHOOTINGS WILL NEVER NEGATE THE NEED FOR GUN RIGHTS

Firearms are a powerful epoch changing development. Not because they necessarily make killing “easier;” killing was always easy for certain groups of people throughout history, including governments and organized thugs. Instead, guns changed the world because for the first time in thousands of years the common man or woman could realistically stop a more powerful and more skilled attacker. Firearms are a miraculous equalizer in a world otherwise dominated and enslaved by everyday psychopaths.

POLICE ANNOUNCE PROGRAM TO ILLEGALLY STOP PEOPLE FOR ‘SAFE DRIVING’ & FACEBOOK OWNS THEM

Crestview, FL — In an unprecedented violation of the right of citizens to be free from unlawful search and seizure, the Crestview Police Department in Florida has announced a most insidious program. Driving safely is now a reason for cops to pull you over—under the guise that you’ll be “offered free pizza.”

“A free Papa Murphy’s “FAVES” pizza awaits Crestview motorists who drive safely and courteously and get caught in the act,” reads the announcement on the department’s Facebook page.

“Under this program, Crestview Police officers may initiate a traffic stop based upon observed safe operation of a motor vehicle,” Community Services Officer Sam Kimmons said.

While the Free Thought Project has reported on programs where cops randomly pull people over to give them free stuff, this program crosses a line others did not by conducting an actual traffic stop.

“We’re going to reward you for good driving,” Police Chief Tony Taylor said. “It’s as simple as that.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This "creeping fascism" on the part of Florida police, has to be dealt with at the highest level of the Florida Court System, and perhaps on to the Supreme Court.
