Radical Left now calling for ban of voting rights for all straight white men… this is what we will face if Democrats win

The Democrat Party in the age of POTUS Obama and POTUS Trump has gone completely rogue and should no longer be considered a viable American political entity.

That’s because the positions members of the party continually adopt are so far outside our founding mores, values, and principles as to be unrecognizable even to Democrats of 40 or 50 years ago.

The latest evidence of this comes from a former television executive who actually said that straight, white males should be denied their right to vote.

As reported by PJ Media, Steven Clifford, the former CEO of the King Broadcasting Company and National Mobile Television, told the website that in order to “save” democracy, the federal government should somehow find a way to “prohibit” the straight white male demographic from casting ballots.

Father of the Web says tech giants Facebook and Google may have to be split because they are becoming more powerful than 'most sovereign states'

Tim Berners-Lee, a London-born computer scientist who invented the Web in 1989, said he was disappointed with the current state of the internet following scandals over the abuse of personal data and the use of social media to spread hate.

Silicon Valley tech firms may need to be split unless challengers or changes in taste reduce their clout, he said.

‘IT’S A DISASTER’ Facebook’s new tool for stopping fake news and misleading adverts is branded ‘completely useless’

FACEBOOK’s new tool to stop misleading adverts and fake news has been branded “completely useless” after a fake ad was posted on the social networking site.

The US firm recently set up a tool that allows users to see details about the ad for political and nationally important issues in a bid to stop fake news and misleading adverts.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The system does not exist to block fakes news. The system exists to block conservatives.

Iran's Worst Nightmare Is Coming True

Oil market headwinds, perhaps even storm clouds are brewing over a slowdown in economic growth due to trade war tensions between Washington and Beijing, and a stronger dollar weighing on emerging market economies, with those countries seeing an exodus of currency for higher yielding, safer havens like the US Dollar and Japanese Yen. A stronger dollar also increases the price for oil import dependent countries, with India, the Philippines, Indonesia and others particularly vulnerable.

DARPA Seeks FAA Approval For Military Drones Over American Cities By 2030 – At The Latest

Just a little over 10 years after drone surveillance inside U.S. borders was declared a conspiracy theory, it is now an indisputable fact of life. So, too, are military grade drones along the “border,” which in reality constitutes a 100-mile-wide swath that encircles the continental United States and 2/3 of its population.

John Mauldin Warns Debt Alarms Are Ringing

As noted, debt can be appropriate—even government debt, in some (rare) circumstances. I am glad FDR issued war bonds to help defeat the Nazis, for instance. Now, however, governments go into debt not because they face existential threats, but simply to keep their citizens and benefactors comfortable.

Similarly, central banks enable debt because they think it will generate economic growth. Sometimes it does, too. The problem is they create debt with little regard for how it will be used. That’s how we get artificial booms and subsequent busts.

We are told not to worry about absolute debt levels so long as the economy is growing in concert with them. That makes sense. A country with a larger GDP can carry more debt. But that is increasingly not what is happening. Let me give you two data points.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Please, if you are personally carrying a lot of debt, please try to get it under control now.

As the Fed tightens, and credit becomes more expensive, it will hit the interest rate on your credit cards like the proverbial financial "bat out of hell", and it will make it both more difficult, and less timely, to pay down the interest on these cards.

Texas Border Residents Warned Of "Armed Civilians" Confronting Caravan; Trump Says Military Mobilized

Texas landowners along the US-Mexico border have reportedly been told this week by the US Border Patrol to expect a possible influx of "armed civilians" on their property as a Central American migrant caravan makes its way towards the United States, reports AP.

The Associated Press reported that these civilians say they intend to support the National Guard and Border Patrol to prevent the illegal migrants from crossing into the U.S.

But some see the move as a negative, arguing that the armed civilians' presence would add even more tension should there be a confrontation.

Three activists told the AP they were going to the border or organizing others, and groups on Facebook have posted warnings about the caravan. One said it was “imperative that we have boots on the ground.” Another wrote: “WAR! SECURE THE BORDER NOW!” -Associated Press

Webmaster's Commentary: 

To all those who feel a need to be in an extra-legal capability at our borders, I have two words for you: "Restraint, please!!"

Because what the leftist "Sorosians" and Clintonistas are drooling for, is the first incident where a woman, or kid, (and you have to know they'll put them right in the line of fire first) is wounded or killed, in order to characterize Trump as some kind inhuman monster, right before the mid-terms next Tuesday. And trust me, the cameras are going to be right out front, documenting everything.

Please do not give them the satisfaction of making that happen.

MATTIS: US NEEDS "OFFENSIVE WEAPONS IN SPACE" FOR DEFENSE

Secretary of Defense James Mattis claims that it’s not enough for the United States to have advanced weapons on Earth, but in order for the nation to be safe, the country needs weapons in space. Mattis alleges that in order to protect the American way of life, the Pentagon must be prepared for the deployment and usage of offensive weapons in space.

“We are going to have to be prepared to use offensive weapons in space should someone decide to militarize it and go on the offensive,” said the retired Marine who took over the Pentagon in January 2017, according to RT. In any competitive sport in the world, “you cannot simply play defense and win,” Mattis added. “This is not an area that we want to be second-place in.”

Space is “critical to our economy, it’s critical to our way of life, we’ve grown reliant on it,” Mattis said. In addition to the surveillance and military intelligence roles, US satellites are used for navigation, communication, commerce, and banking.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mr. President and Sec Def Mattis, a word, please: walking away from this Outer Space Treaty of 67 is a really, really bad idea, and incurring the costs, at the expense of Americans already marginalized by the "great migration" of American jobs which have been offshored/outsourced over the past 20 years, will not "endear" this administration with its base.

I would like you to both, please, consider both the consequences, and the costs, to this country, both in terms of its international reputation (which appears to be going through an industrial-strength shredder as I type this), and the coming geopolitical cycle for 2020.

Instagram removes #Jewsdid11 hashtag at NYT request

Sheera Frenkel @sheeraf (NYT reporter) tweets:
"Following our reporting on this, Instagram has removed the hashtag #jewsdid911. It was active for years and had over 11,000 posts. It was one of the top search results if you searched for “Jews.” Why did it take our questions to get it removed?"

[That's sort of funny, because when I shouted to Trump that "Jews were arrested on 9/11 in New Jersey, not Muslims," and that "Israel did 9/11!," he replied by declaring on live TV that "hes alright, hes okay, he's actually a Trump guy, he's on our side, he's very committed, hes just got a lot of energy."] LOL. :-) Video of his odd response here.

Mark Zuckerberg Officially Called to Appear in Joint Hearing by UK, Canadian MPs

Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of the social media giant Facebook, was officially summoned to appear at a joint hearing by British and Canadian MPs to answer questions related to the issues of data privacy and disinformation.

During a hearing scheduled to take place on November 27, British MPs and their Canadian counterparts want Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg to appear before an "international grand committee," saying that his "evidence is now overdue and urgent".

"We call on you to take up this historic opportunity to tell parliamentarians from both sides of the Atlantic and beyond about the measures Facebook is taking to halt the spread of disinformation on your platform, and to protect user data," said Damian Collins, Tory MP who chairs the UK's Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Committee.

China’s Xi tells military to prepare for war as US Navy warns of high seas encounters

One of the key responsibilities of the Southern Theater Command is protecting China’s interests in the South China Sea, where Beijing claims sovereignty over a number of islands. The sea is of strategic importance to Chinese trade. The US rejects the territorial claims and has been sending so-called Freedom of Navigation missions through the waters and airspace, which Beijing considers its own, as a gesture of defiance.

Chief of US Naval Operations Admiral John Richardson said Tuesday the US and China “will meet each other more and more on the high seas” as the two nations confront each other in the South China Sea.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Just because something is the most ham-fistedly, pig-headedly stupid thing it could possibly do, is utterly no guarantee that the US government will not do it.

Provoking China over these islands is definitely one of the most ham-fistedly, pig-headedly stupid things the US military could be doing right now.

As someone who sits on an Island which would be a first-strike target for China, if this war cranks up, you can color me extraordinarily nervous right now.

"Organized Busing Operation" Exposed, Moving Migrants Closer To US Border

But as it turns out, the organizations that have been aiding the caravan since it first formed in Honduras nearly three weeks ago have already accounted for this. And to help ensure that images of border patrol agents arresting families and separating small children from their parents are flashing across cable news in the days and hours before the polls open, these groups are employing a new tactic: Busing.

That's right. As Fox News report on Tuesday showed, migrants traveling with the caravan are being loaded on to chartered buses and transported to the next stop on the trail to the US, having refused Mexico's offer of asylum, shelter and jobs should they opt to stay in the country. Fox News reporter Griff Jenkins revealed that multiple professional buses have lined up to board the migrants, as footage from the report showed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am expecting this to hit the border precisely on Tuesday, 6 November, because that is when the midterm elections in the US will be held.

I have a feeling that this stunt will come back to bite the Democrats, big-time.

US Holds Thousands of Syrian Refugees Hostage, Establishes Military Bases in Northern Syria

Syria is Washington’s war, launched by Obama in March 2011, escalated by Trump, no end of it in prospect. It’s all about wanting pro-Western puppet rule replacing the Syrian government, isolating Iran, ahead of a similar scheme to topple its government.

Most Americans are mindless about what’s going on.

Syria is in the eye of the storm, war in its eighth year, Washington using ISIS and other terrorists as imperial proxies, supplemented by US-led terror-bombing, is responsible for massacring thousands of Syrian civilians.

US forces operate in Syria illegally, occupying northern and southern territory on “18 bases in the northeastern and eastern provinces of” the country, according to Fars News.

Russian military analyst Vladimir Kozin said

“the US is training terrorists in 19 military bases in Syria.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unfortunately, no matter which of the Presidential candidates for whom Americans might vote, that perpetual and endless state of war,so loved and adored by the US Deep State, because it keeps the people who comprise it in power, will not allow its end.

Gaza's drinking water spurs blue baby syndrome, serious illnesses

This article is the first of a two-part series on Gaza’s water crisis. The second, which examines solutions to Gaza’s water and health catastrophe, was published on Tuesday, October 30.

Gaza - The unshaven doctor with circles under his eyes enters the children's ward at Al Nassar hospital in Gaza City. It's a Thursday evening, almost the weekend. The ward is bleak and eerily quiet, but for the occasional wail of an infant.

But in recent months Dr Abu Samia has seen sharp rises in gastroenteritis, kidney disease, paediatric cancer, marasmus - a disease of severe malnutrition appearing in infants – and "blue baby syndrome", an ailment causing bluish lips, face, and skin, and blood the colour of chocolate.

Before, the doctor says, he saw "one or two cases" of blue baby syndrome in five years. Now it's the opposite - five cases in one year.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Israelis have a multitude of ways toward insuring that Palestinians don't survive for very long; prohibition of clean drinking water for Gaza's children, is one of those ways.

Depriving anyone of clean water, is a act criminal.

But then again, what else would one expect of a wretchedly apartheid, self-proclaimed theocracy with nuclear weapons?!?

Annotation of Sec. Pompeo’s Certification of Yemen War: Civilian Casualties and Saudi-Led Coalition

Last month, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo certified that the Saudi-led Coalition fighting a war in Yemen is taking sufficient steps to reduce civilian casualties in its military operations. The Secretary’s decision whether to issue a certification is required by a recent statute: section 1290 of the McCain National Defense Authorization Act. Under that provision, a failure to certify (or issue a waiver in its stead) would have automatically triggered suspension of congressional appropriations for the refueling of Coalition aircraft conducting missions in Yemen.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I doubt that they will get anything at all from Secretary of State Pompeo; and definitely not by tomorrow, which signals the months' end.

The lies will continue on his part, because it supports the incredible amount of money the Saudis are paying for their jets and bombs; it is just that simple.

America’s Bloody Ally

The U.S. continues to support the dictatorship of Saudi Arabia—as a key ally—even after the horrific murder of Jamal Khashoggi and the horrendous five-year bombing campaign on Yemen, writes Ann Wright.

The latest information leaking from the Turkish government indicates that the dismemberment of Khashoggi was filmed and Skyped to Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s senior aide, Saud al-Qahtani, who has since been reportedly sacked from his position. Al-Qahtani was reportedly Mohammad bin Salman’s right-hand adviser/enforcer in the kidnapping and interrogation of Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri and of the detention and shakedown of many wealthy Saudi elite in the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Riyadh.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Some media can certainly be portrayed in this way; but not all. And I hate the issue of ANYONE getting body slammed, for any reason.

But having said that, Ann Wright is one of the most principled, and moral woman, I have ever met, when she did speak here on Oahu, at an event Mike and I attended. I just wish there were more in government and Congress who had her strength of courage and witness; sadly, she is the exception which proves the rule, unfortunately.

US Says Raising Pressure on Saudi Arabia Over Qatar and Yemen

The White House is still “weighing options” on what to do about Saudi Arabia murdering US permanent resident Jamal Khashoggi. President Trump clearly isn’t inclined to do very much, but that doesn’t mean some pressure won’t come to bear.

Officials are already reporting some minor pressure on the Saudis, centered on 16-months of Saudi isolation of Qatar, a vital US ally. Administration officials are reportedly urging the Saudis to quickly resolve Qatar.

Officials also say they want the Saudis to take certain unspecified “steps” on the wildly unpopular war in Yemen. The US has been getting a lot of flack for backing that Saudi war, and the Saudis are committing a lot of war crimes.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US government is neck-deep in collusion with Saudi war crimes in Yemen; but the US companies don't want that so-lucrative Saudi money to go away, given all the bombs and fighter jets we keep selling them.

My sense is, once the Khashoggi affair is forgotten, the US/Saudi punishment of Yemen will continue, completely unabated. And here is what it looks like from the Yemeni side of the conflict(warning: graphic, horrific images)

Images: Yemeni children killed or crippled in US-enabled Saudi bombing runs

Image: Yemeni child starving to death, courtesy of US-Enabled Yemeni port blockades

Images: Yemeni children dying of cholera, possibly weaponised) courtesy of US/Saudi bombing of water infrastructure

And if you darn near lost your lunch over these horrific images, congrats; you haven't completely lost your humanity.

But folks, unless and until we can have a serious conversation with our (alleged) representatives, who work tirelessly for the corporations which own them, and convince them to have a very frank with our Merchant of Death in Chief, President Trump, about how lousy the optics of this war are for his run in 2020, business in Yemen will continue as usual, with the collateral damage of innocent lives increasing.

PLO Suspends Recognition of Israel, Withdraws From Oslo Accord

The Central Council of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) has moved to fully withdraw from the Oslo Accord on Monday, announcing that they are ending their commitment to the deal, and halting all security coordination with Israel.

Halting security cooperation with Israel is a huge move, and it also comes with an announcement that the PLO will withhold recognition of the State of Israel, until such time as Israel agrees to recognize the State of Palestine.

The 1993 Oslo Accord was intended to increase cooperation during a brief transition period leading to Palestinian statehood. With Israel’s far-right leadership having long insisted that the Palestinians will never have an independent state, many in the PLO have argued that security cooperation was just making the permanent Israeli occupation cheaper and giving them legal cover to do things in violation of international law in the occupied territories.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A reasonable move, on the part of the PLO, seeing how little progress has been made since Oslo in 1993, but not one with which the United States will be happy.

Leaked Documents Prove Soros’s Open Society Is Working with UN in Supporting Current Illegal Migrant Crisis

The United Nations admitted on Sunday that they are assisting the illegal immigrants and caravans from Central America making their way to the US southern border.

The UN admitted in today’s news article that they have mobilized extra staff and resources to assist the illegal immigrants in the caravans.

UN News reported:

"A priority for UNHCR, which has mobilized extra staff and resources to help those making the journey in Mexico’s southern borderlands, is ensuring migrants are informed on their rights to asylum. In an agency video, a UNHCR protection associate said many migrants were simply unaware asylum was an option.

UNHCR spokesperson Adrian Edwards told reporters in Geneva earlier this week that transit and destination countries must consider their human rights obligations ahead of immigration status.

“UNHCR would like to remind countries along this route that this caravan is likely to include people in real danger,” Edwards said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF, in fact, these reports are true, this action by the UN may well convince President Trump to leave the UN, and strip away all financial contribution to its causes.

UPDATE: Israel will never allow Trump to leave the UN as they would lose their veto in the Security Council!

PAUL CRAIG ROBERTS: THE LATEST BOMB SCARE

While driving I listened to a large part of the press conference, and the affair struck me as an orchestration. Every agency involved was present, from the Postal Service to the FBI and Secret Service, the directors of which praised the expert professional performance of their agencies in intercepting the bombs. It seemed to me overdone, especially in view of the FBI’s admission that they could not say that the bombs were functional. Why would a bomber send non-functional bombs?

There are other things to notice and to wonder about. Photos of the packages, if these are the actual mailed packages and not someone’s construction used to cast doubt on the official story, do not show postage sufficient to cover the weight of a bomb. Also, all the anti-Democrat stickers on Sayoc’s van seem very new and unfaded to have spent much time in the Florida sun.

THE U.S. LOST A KEY ALLY IN SOUTHERN AFGHANISTAN. BUT ABDUL RAZIQ WAS NO HERO.

Raziq was a classic product of America’s failed policy in Afghanistan, wherein personalities have been propped up over — and sometimes at the expense of — institutions. Of the $557 billion America spent in Afghanistan from 2001 to 2011, just 5.4 percent went toward governance. Most of the money was spent on security, which enriched men like Raziq.

US MAIL BOMBER REPORTEDLY COMPILED 100-NAME ‘HIT LIST’

Cesar Sayoc, suspected of mailing at least 15 pipe bombs to prominent Democrats, was just getting started, according to law enforcement sources who say they found a “hit list” of over 100 names in his Trump-spangled van.
The list, which includes names and addresses, was found in the van where he is believed to have lived and constructed the devices. Sources familiar with the probe say Sayoc told FBI agents and other authorities that he did not mean to hurt the targets during a brief interview at their South Florida field office.

The fifteenth envelope – a third mailing destined for CNN headquarters in Atlanta after two earlier packages were sent to the station’s New York offices – was intercepted Monday afternoon at a postal facility.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This guy sounds like a consummate patsy, and these bombs appear to be crudely fabricated devices, which could never, possibly, be exploded here.

This smells to both of us like a fabricated hoax, supposed to build "sympathy" for the Democrats in the upcoming midterms.The problem for the Democrats is, it has exploded in their collective faces, somewhat akin to a bad trick cigar.

And the Democrats, with their tone-deaf messaging on illegal immigration, given that we are looking at hordes attempting to breach the US borders illegally, bringing utterly zero skills but plenty of undesirables and diseases, is the kind of action toward which the character Tony Soprano in the TV series "The Sopranos" would have said, "Fuggetaboutit!!"

SURVEILLANCE CAMERAS CAN IDENTIFY EVERYONE BY "TALKING TO THEIR CELLPHONES"

“This system basically allows surveillance cameras to talk to the public through their individual phones,” Purdue Univeristy doctoral student Siyuan Cao said.

Purdue University's SIMBA Labs has developed a camera-to-human surveillance program called PHADE otherwise known as Private Human Addressing. The name of this new program, seems appropriate as everyone's privacy will soon phade fade away. (Pun intended.)

Before I discuss PHADE I would like to point out a few important facts.

Purdue University is also known as "Purdue Homeland University (PHU)." PHU's mission is to "enhance Homeland Security.and validate Homeland Security technology."

DHS/PHU also has an entire section devoted to giving threat assessments of K-12 grade students, "we have created a threat assessment tool that schools can use for an all-hazards approach." You cannot make this stuff up.

WATCH: FAMILY SUES FOR $25 MILLION AFTER COPS EXECUTE UNARMED ACCOUNTANT, SHOOTING HIM IN THE HEAD

Fairfax County, Virginia – Earlier this year, Dash Cam footage was released that shows police shooting and killing an unarmed man they claimed was responsible for a hit-and-run. However, the man was actually the victim of a traffic accident and the video shows that he then became the victim of murder by police. After being tight lipped for nearly a year on the incident, the police report has finally been released, showing that the victim was unarmed. Now, the taxpayers could be held liable to the tune of $25 million.

Bijan Ghaisar, 25, died 10 days after he was shot in the head four times by U.S. Park Police, according to the family.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And the consistent question one must ask of the top legal-eagle in chief, Jeff Sessions, is, where the hell were you, sir, when this horrific situation happened?!?

Giving another "victory prance" speech, perchance, at a law enforcement fund raiser, where you repeat, ad nauseum, that it is the police against whom a war is being conducted?!?

Unless, and until, you are able to stop this kind of behaviour,allegedly in the name of those values, "protect and serve", you do not have a leg upon which to stand, making these accusations of police being the target.

Throw the entire earth into an economic tailspin

Destroy all nationalism, national borders, and create chaos among all nations prior to an “incendiary event” or series of actions that leads to a world war.

The world war is the most important part of it all, in the eyes of the globalists.

Christian News Site ‘LifeSite’ Blacklisted by Web Host

LifeSite, a Christian pro-life news outlet, was allegedly blacklisted by its web host and given just 12 hours to find another host the website, or risk being offline.

“LifeSite just received an email at 8:30 p.m. EST from our web-hosting company alerting us that they will be taking our website down within 12 hours, if not sooner,” claimed LifeSite in a statement, Saturday. “We received absolutely no forewarning whatsoever about this decision.”

“Our web developer is scrambling right now to set up a possibly-needed temporary solution to keep the website live. However, we’re going to have to go through the ordeal and expense of moving server companies,” the news outlet continued. “We also intend to fight these attacks, which will carry significant legal costs.”

More Independent Media To Be Shut Down Prior To 2020 U.S. Presidential Election?

If you haven’t already heard, Facebook has completely shut down hundreds, if not thousands of Independent media pages over the last year.

Some of the biggest pages include The Free Thought Project and The Anti-media, with millions of followers each, and years of sourced journalism. These pages, among others, became targets a long time ago. Working directly in the field and behind the scenes, I can tell you that all of us have been aware of the censorship initiative for a long time because it started approximately three years ago now. The complete deletion of multiple pages kicked off by popular media figure Alex Jones, was followed by a massive campaign of “fake news” awareness.

Gab blamed for synagogue shooting, kicked off PayPal

Gab, a social media platform used by the Pittsburgh synagogue shooter, has been kicked off PayPal and pressured into releasing an apologetic statement for the shooter's anti-Semitic rants.

In the letter it sent to Gab, PayPal does not elaborate on how the platform violated its user agreement, explaining that it is PayPal's right to terminate service at any time for any reason – a provision hidden in many online contracts.

The alleged shooter, Michael Bowers, had accounts on Twitter and Facebook as well, but it was Gab – the (alt-)Right's favorite platform – that took all the heat for hosting Bowers' anti-Semitic rants. Gab, meanwhile, says it provided Bowers' used data to the FBI immediately when it heard of his identity, archiving his account before suspending it.

HAS AMERICA BECOME A DICTATORSHIP DISGUISED AS A DEMOCRACY?

We’re living in two worlds, you and I.

There’s the world we see (or are made to see) and then there’s the one we sense (and occasionally catch a glimpse of), the latter of which is a far cry from the propaganda-driven reality manufactured by the government and its corporate sponsors, including the media.

Indeed, what most Americans perceive as life in America - privileged, progressive and free - is a far cry from reality, where economic inequality is growing, real agendas and real power are buried beneath layers of Orwellian doublespeak and corporate obfuscation, and “freedom,” such that it is, is meted out in small, legalistic doses by militarized police armed to the teeth.

All is not as it seems.

Yes, I absolutely see the disconnect, being pushed at us; but I, like a number of my brother and sister Americans, have awoken, and are not buying it.

DHS WANTS TO LET POLICE AND EMERGENCY VEHICLES TALK TO YOUR CAR

It seems like not a week goes by that I am not warning everyone about another government surveillance program.

Sadly, this story is no different and this one might send shivers down your spine. (Happy Halloween.)

Government spying on the public is out of control, and perhaps nothing says that more than the latest revelation about DHS's plan to allow first responders to send digital alerts to every vehicle. All in the name of public safety of course.

Two days ago, an article in NexGov, revealed that DHS is giving the Heedful Audio Alert System $1.1 million to let police, firefighters, and paramedics talk to your car via the Waze app.

The HAAS Alert system will allow first responders to send notifications to everyone's vehicle and phone.

Why would first responders need to talk to our cars?

For their safety of course. DHS and first responders are trying to convince the public that the "Move Over" law is ineffective and does not protect them.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is nothing short of insanity, and could wind up creating crashed due to distracted driving, when someone is receiving a text or call from the DHS.

GOOGLE WANTS TO BE YOUR MEDIA MOMMY

Google might soon add its terms of service to the First Amendment. A leaked document from the tech giant argues that because of a variety of factors, including the election of Donald Trump, what we call the “American tradition” of free speech may no longer be viable. The report lays out how Google can serve as the world’s “Good Censor,” a stern mommy figure protecting us from harmful content and, by extension, dangerous behavior, like electing the wrong president again.

The document, which Google has officially characterized as research, is infuriatingly vague about whether any decisions have been made or action has been taken. So think of all this as a guidepost, like the Ghost of Christmas Future showing us potential doom ahead.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This, folks, is the red warning flag that this country has turned/is turning into a high-tech dictatorship, and I am sincerely encouraging those who can, to get the hell out of this country right now!!

DIGITAL BOOK BURNERS

Jamie Fly, a former high-ranking Bush era neocon, believes you shouldn’t have the right to post on social media.

“Fly went on to complain that ‘all you need is an email’ to set up a Facebook or Twitter account, lamenting the sites’ accessibility to members of the general public. He predicted a long struggle on a global scale to fix the situation, and pointed out that to do so would require constant vigilance,” write Jeb Sprague and Max Blumenthal.

This attitude shouldn’t come as a surprise. Neocons believe they are a special breed, the chosen few of an intellectual crème de la crème, and the rest of us are merely bread and circus spectators on the sidelines as they forge our collective history (and increasingly possible ruin).

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have to tell you, folks, as a Christian Pacifist Activist, when I read codswallop like this, from a gentleman who probably never encountered a US-sponsored war which he absolutely hated, I find his "ubermench" mentality just too hard to swallow. (and please remember; this was a core concept for Germany under Hitler, a German concept for "Beyond-Man", "Superman", "Overman", "Superhuman", "Hyperman", "Hyperhuman"; taken from the writings of Friedrich Nietzsche.)

I completely, and rationally, reject his concept that there should not be a lot of honest, individual voices out there in Netland; and attempting to shut down these honest voices (of which, I am convinced, WRH is one) means shutting down any and all peaceful, logical resistance to the agenda of the Federal Government, when it is absolutely ham-fistedly, pig-headedly morally wrong.

And there is another disturbing parallel in Fry's thinking which very much reminds me of the ascent of Hitler in Germany, and that is the following:
How did Hitler control the Media: Hitler imposed censorship of the media and drastic penalties for criticizing the Nazi regime.

It appears, from his evangelical fervor, that he is hell-bent on total media control, so that the government propaganda is all that we hear, and that he is looking for a means, motive, and opportunity to completely shut down honest, fact-based discussions of various governmental issues, both foreign and domestic.

I would politely suggest that there are two documents inherent to both the founding, and continued success, of the US, with which Mr. Fry needs to
re-acquaint himself: those are the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights.

HAPPY WATER: IS IT TIME WE STARTED ADDING LITHIUM TO WATER SUPPLY?

Left-wing media outlet Vox is questioning whether the U.S. should start adding lithium to the public’s water supply.

In an article entitled “How our drinking water could help prevent suicide,” Vox highlights psychiatry professor Nassir Ghaemi and his claims that the practice would be beneficial for the American populace.

“High-lithium areas, he says, have suicide rates 50 to 60 percent lower than those of low-lithium areas,” Vox writes, citing a study co-authored by Ghaemi.

“In general, in the United States, lithium levels are much higher in the Northeast and East Coast and very low in the Mountain West,” Ghaemi said. “And suicide rates track that exactly — much lower suicide rates in the Northeast, and the highest rates of suicide are in the Mountain West.”

The article goes on to state that lithium advocates allege “tens of thousands of lives a year” could be saved with “small amounts of lithium, amounts likely too small to have significant side effects.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Good heavens, absoflippinglutely not!!

As reported at the following blog, the side effects can be pretty horrific:

Side-effects: lithium

The article goes on to state: Lithium Side Effects, Important Information, How to Take & More
3

Severity: Major. You should check with your doctor immediately if any of these side effects occur when taking lithium:

confusion, poor memory, or lack of awareness
fainting
fast or slow heartbeat
frequent urination
increased thirst
irregular pulse
stiffness of the arms or legs

Thank you, but no thanks here. I would politely suggest, instead, that Dr. Nassir Ghaemi and his cohorts perform the studies on themselves, and see what happens.

TAXPAYERS HELD LIABLE AFTER OFFICERS CAUGHT ON VIDEO FORCING KIDS TO FIGHT IN A CHILD FIGHT CLUB

Cuyahoga County taxpayers will shell out $180,000 this week to settle a lawsuit brought by former children housed in the juvenile detention center—who were forced to fight each other for the officers’ entertainment in some sort of child fight club.

According to the lawsuit and the video, the officers would pit two children against each other in what they referred to as “Fight Nights.” This was a long standing tradition inside the juvenile detention center, according to the suit.

Luckily, for the victims, at least one of the fights was caught on video and served as evidence showing the officers chuckle and laugh as the kids tore each other apart. In the disturbing video, one child is seen throwing a punch and then body slamming another child before jumping on top of him.

Another video showed officers locking the children in a room and forcing them to fight until only one of the kids emerged victoriously.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Dear Lord, what is wrong with these people?!?

Kids who wind up in juvenile detention facilities, are generally bereft of love, structure, consistency, and inspiration to work for, and and to live, their dreams.

In looking at successful families in my own circuit, I can see, practically, that love, structure, inspiration, and extended (functional) families can make all the difference.

These officers need to be sacked, and immediately, and never, ever be allowed to work with kids ever, period, end of discussion.

And BTW, Attorney General Sessions, where the heck were you, when these officers were cheering on physical abuse of these kids?

In your "save zone" of not giving a damn about what was happening to them, I would imagine.

NATION HYPNOTIZED IN HORROR BY TOY BOMBS WHILE KILLING CIVILIANS WITH REAL ONES

And of course it is a good thing that nobody has been hurt by these devices. Obviously targeting anyone with packages containing explosive materials is terrible, even if those devices were not rigged with the intention of detonating and harming anyone, and it is a good thing that not a single one of them has done so. It is a good thing that none of America’s political elites were targeted by the sort of explosive device that America drops on people in other countries every single day.

You know, the kind that actually explode.

Apparently some Acme comedy bombs mailed to a number of extremely rich people, which thankfully did not hurt anybody at all, are infinitely more newsworthy than the real bombs which maim and destroy children in Yemen on an industrial scale.

— Craig Murray (@CraigMurrayOrg) October 24, 2018

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As a Christian Pacifist Activist, the disconnect the writer of this post sees, looking at what is happening around this world, with the US complicit in so many deaths, in Yemen, Afghanistan, Libya, Niger, Somalia, and Iraq, is utterly and painfully true.

Folks, when people in power in this talk about the "honor", "glory" and "defending the American way of life" as valid descriptions of the wars in which the Unhinged, Surveilled State of Amerika is currently, and about to be, enmeshed, they are lying to you.

Simply put (and this guy was hopelessly wrong about a lot of things),when Karl Marx said that wars are economic in their origin, the man was absolutely, dead-on correct.

The war in Iraq?!? This was done to give the US and Western-centric corporations control over its oil.

The "undeclared war" in Yemen, where the US is enabling Saudi war crimes as I type this?!?

There is an issue that the article misses, in that controlling Yemen means controlling the waterways of Bab El Mandab; The Red Sea, and the Gulf of Aden, all points for moving oil in and out of the region.

The war in Libya?!? This was done to prevent Muammar Gaddafi from issuing a gold-backed currency, the gold dinar, which would have shredded the value of the US dollar in a heartbeat. New Hillary Emails reveal the true motive for Libya intervention.

The war in Afghanistan?!? To control the pipeline rights, rare mineral development, and control of the poppy crops, from which a booming market in illicit heroin is derived.

The coming war against Iran?!? First, this will be done to honor Trump's commitment to both Israel's Prime Minister, Bibi Netanyahu, and his biggest American Supporter, Sheldon Adelson, who has supported the Trump Campaign with millions in overt, and covert funding, and secondly, to force this country to always sell its oil only in US dollars, post-regime change.

Of course, both Netanyahu and Adelson fully expect this war to be fully executed.... only at the costs of only US blood, and US money, not Israeli

Let's take a look at this last issue, shall we?!?

In FY 2018 the federal deficit was $779 billion.

With its desire for more and more wars, with which to enrich the US government financially, we are looking a Federal deficit of almost 780 billion dollars in fiscal 2018; that's a huge number to wrap my head around.

Instead of limiting spending in a reasonable and rational way, the US government appears to be miring the US public in an absolutely unpayable debt structure, from which there is no way out. This falls on the backs of hard-working Americans, who are desperately struggling to keep food on the table, and a roof over their heads. The people creating this unpayable debt have armies of lawyers and accountants on speed-dial, to insure that they get the best break possible with taxes.

Russia and China, which may well come to Iran's aid, should it be invaded, have weaponry the US military can only wet-dream about; sorry for being blunt, but because of their close relationship with both the Pentagon and Congress, and contributing lavishly to the campaigns of politicians on both sides of the aisle, our military industrial complex has been consistently behind the 8 ball, in staying at least two steps ahead of where our international competitors are, in terms of developing lower cost weapons that just... do the job brilliantly.

Please understand; as a Christian pacifist activist, I hate war; but if such a war happens, I want to see our brothers and sisters in uniform equipped with the best, most brilliantly crafted weaponry that actually works as advertised, and beyond.

So, we have a the US government hopelessly indebted to its creditors, and a potential coming world war, where our military doesnt' have the money, the manufacturing, the troop strength, or weaponry to insure a positive outcome in a world war, ultimately against Russia, and China.

This is a potential recipe for a complete, unmitigated disaster for this country, the consequences of which may be both horrific... and irreversible.

And we have a companion piece this morning, from blackistednews.com:

Saudi-led airstrikes hit civilians in Yemen
If We, the People, do nothing, in the most peaceful, logical way possible, to get US involvement in these US-enabled Saudi war crimes in Yemen to stop, then We the People are also, absolutely and unequivocally, complicit in these war crimes as well.

FREE SPEECH IN FINNISH: PRISON FOR RUSSOPHILES

On October 18, the Helsinki District Court sentenced the founder and editor-in-chief of the network publications MV-lehti and Uber Uutiset Ilya Yanichkin to 22 months in prison, and another person involved - human rights activist, lawyer and journalist Johan Beckman - to a year of probation. In addition, the convicts will have to pay 136,000 and 10,000 euros, respectively, to journalist Jessica Aro, the principal snitch who initiated the process.

1984: TWITTER REMOVING ACCOUNTS THAT TWEET INFOWARS MATERIAL

Twitter is removing accounts that tweet out and support Alex Jones and his website www.infowars.com.

Yahoo News reports the company confirmed the removal of more accounts affiliated with Infowars.

Twitter confirmed a CNN report stating the permanent suspension of 18 accounts, in part due to attempts to aid Infowars, as well as Jones circumventing the ban put in place.

Last month, Twitter permanently banned Jones and Infowars from its platform, stating in a tweet that the accounts violated its behavior policies.

Twitter has previously stated that it would evaluate any reports regarding other accounts potentially associated with Jones and Infowars.

Tech companies joined together to hinder Infowars’ operations when Apple Inc., Google parent Alphabet Inc. and Facebook Inc. all banned Infowars and content produced by Jones on their platforms.

Meanwhile, in September payments processor PayPal Holdings Inc. ended its business relationship with Infowars.

‘A Cruel Choice’: Why Israel Targets Palestinian Schools

What is truly uplifting, however, is that, despite the Israeli military Occupation and ongoing restrictions on Palestinian freedom, the Palestinian population remains one of the most educated in the Middle East.

According to the United Nations Development Program (UNDP), the literacy rate in Palestine (estimated at 96.3%) is one of the highest in the Middle East and the illiteracy rate (3.7% among individuals over the age of 15) is one of the lowest in the world.

If these statistics are not heartening enough, bearing in mind the ongoing Israeli war on Palestinian school and curricula, consider this: the besieged and war-stricken Gaza Strip has an even higher literacy rate than the West Bank, as they both stand at 96.6% and 96% respectively.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Oh, it really must take a really"butch" IDF member...to harass, and attack and sometimes maim a Palestinian student!!

Saudi King 'will have Crown Prince REPLACED to restore the credibility of the monarchy' after his disastrous handling of the Khashoggi murder

Saudi Arabia's King could have his Crown Prince son replaced to restore the credibility of the monarchy amid turmoil over the Jamal Khashoggi murder, Britain's former defence attaché to the kingdom has claimed.

Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman has faced claims he may have been behind the death of the journalist who went missing after entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.

Saudi Arabia first denied any role in Khashoggi's disappearance before blaming his October 2 death on a botched attempt to return him to the kingdom.

As the Crown Prince battles to contain the fallout from the killing, Saudi prosecutors said today that the murder was pre-planned and suspects were being interrogated.

According to Colonel Brian Lees, once the UK's defence attaché to Saudi Arabia and Yemen, the Crown Prince's days as de facto ruler are numbered and his father, King Salman, may now look to replace him following his disastrous handling of the case

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF this assessment proves true, at would absolutely corroborate what WRH has been suggesting that this was an "inside job", courtesy of "malice in the palace",because others in the Royal Family did not feel that their right to succession was duly considered, when the King appointed MbS as crown prince.

This will play itself out in private, and the House of Saud never wants other countries (or its own citizens) aware of how it handles such family feuds.

US Deploys 800 Troops To Southern Border As 'Migrant Caravan' Approaches: CNN

Final details are reportedly being worked out, including where the troops will come from and where they will be stationed. For example, it's unclear how many - if any - of the troops will be National Guard. According to CNN, they will mostly provide support services like building tents and running supplies for border patrol agents, who are still tasked with subduing illegal immigrants.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A note to Sec Def Mattis: sir, I am very concerned that this number of troops being deployed, cannot possibly be enough people to contain the illegal immigrants who will be pouring across our border like a human tsunami.

And sir, you and your team had better figure out what you will do when women and children are placed right at the head of that caravan, so that the Left can have their "grisly moment" which they will then slap on the headlines of this planet's 24/7 news cycle.

US Spy Plane Coordinated Drone Attack On Russian Base In Syria, Kremlin Says 

Over the past year Russia's chief military base in Syria, Khmeimim Air Base near Latakia (alternately Hmeimim), has come under sporadic waves of attack by small armed drones, which have appeared increasingly sophisticated.

Those attacks were assumed to have been the work of jihadists operating out of Idlib, such as Jabhat Fatah al-Sham, who launched the small makeshift drones in an attempt to penetrate Russian defenses, even targeting the Russian naval facility at the Syrian port city of Tartus in addition.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF this is, in fact, true, the Unhinged, Surveilled State of Amerika's Deep State, is led by people who have just succeeded in 1: scaring the living heck out of me, and 2: have been found to have zero respect, either for this country's people, or for the true horrors of war, which it seems,has every intention of creating with Russia, and 3: having all the morals of a dead tree trunk.

If ANYONE from Russia who reads this on a regular basis, I am begging you, please, to share with your government's leadership, at the highest level possible, the reality that the American people do not want war with it in the least.

We want to see cooperation in all areas of science, art, healing, and exchanges in discoveries which will profit both nations.

Also please let them know that after 9/11; after the invasion of Afghanistan; and after the invasions of Iraq and Libya, the American public is both very war-weary and war-skeptical, and most understand the reason for the current demonization of Russia, coupled with sanctions for things Russia never really did, like annex Ukraine, are being done deliberately to make this Russia appear as the "bad guys" in terms of international relations.

I am hopeful that this planned meeting between President Trump and President Putin, planned for next month, will take the world back from the precipice upon which it is standing right now; unfortunately, to be starkly realistic, there are too many who would profit from such a war, who will refuse to walk away from the madness.

Avenatti, Swetnick Referred To DOJ For Criminal Investigation Over False Statements On Kavanaugh

Attorney Michael Avenatti and his client Julie Swetnick have been referred to the Justice Department for criminal investigation for a "potential conspiracy to provide materially false statements to Congress and obstruct a congressional committee investigation, three separate crimes, in the course of considering Justice Brett M.

At Least 19 Killed, 10 Injured in Saudi-Led Coalition Air Raid in Yemen - Report

At least 19 people have been killed and 10 others wounded by the US-Saudi air strikes on Yemen’s western city of Bayt al Faqih located in the vicinity of the port city of Al Hudaydah on Wednesday, local media reported.

The air raid had been held hours after the previous strikes that killed three civilians, including a minor child, and injured six other people, the Masirah TV channel reported.

A recent UN report said Saudi-led coalition airstrikes – which have hit open-air markets, health clinics, schools, funerals and weddings, according to published reports — have been blamed for most of more than 16,000 civilians killed or injured in the Yemen conflict over the past three years.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

You look at all the opportunistic faux wailing, and gnashing of teeth over the death of Khashoggi, and generally rightly so, but where is the outrage for the innocents who keep getting slain by this US/Saudi death machine in Yemen?!?

Sorry folks, this is nowhere to be found, and according to the corporate Presstitutes in the US, this doesn't even ping the radar for "important news", like a change in a celebrity's hairstyle.

But I will show you, in some very graphic images, what the US/Saudi war machine is doing, right now, in Yemen:

Yemeni children assassinated and maimed for life, courtesy of Saudi air strikes

Image: Yemeni child dying of malnutrition, courtesy of US/Saudi blockade, which is the only way to bring food into the country

Image: Yemeni children dying of cholera, courtesy of Saudi-destroyed water infrastructure, and a brutal (possibly weaponised)breakout of the disease

And as long as we Americans do not say something, in a peaceful, logical manner, and do something as one people, we become complicit in the Saudi-US war crimes in Yemen.

I am asking you to please forward this article to your Congressional Representatives, asking them if they believe the murder of children here is more than just collateral damage, and how they intend, personally, to urge President Trump to put a stop to this.

Make sure, politely, that they understand that if they are up for re-election next month, taking no action on this may well cost them their campaign, particularly in close races this November.

TIM COOK: PERSONAL DATA COLLECTION IS BEING 'WEAPONIZED AGAINST US WITH MILITARY EFFICIENCY'

Apple CEO Tim Cook blasted Silicon Valley tech companies and their abuse of user privacy in a keynote address at a privacy conference in Brussels Wednesday, saying personal information is being "weaponized against us with military efficiency."

"Every day, billions of dollars change hands, and countless decisions are made, on the basis of our likes and dislikes, our friends and families, our relationships and conversations. Our wishes and fears, our hopes and dreams," Cook said. "These scraps of data, each one harmless enough on its own, are carefully assembled, synthesized, traded, and sold."

"Your profile is then run through algorithms that can serve up increasingly extreme content, pounding our harmless preferences into hardened convictions," Cook said.

Apple and its chief executive have long touted personal privacy, distancing themselves from recent, growing scandals among tech companies — but the comments from Cook are some of the strongest to date.

INTERPOL ALERT ISSUED BY TURKEY FOR EXILED JOURNALISTS PRESIDENT ERDOGAN WANTS TO TOSS IN JAIL

Turkey's government has already locked up more than 70 journalists -- most of them in the wake of a failed coup. President Recep Erdogan says the imprisoned journalists are terrorists and criminals, but rather than offer evidence of wrongdoing, Erdogan just keeps throwing more of them in jail.

The notoriously thin-skinned president has been eliminating dissent and criticism since he took power, so there's no reason to give his accusations of criminal activity credence. Erdogan has leaned on favorable laws elsewhere in the world to press for criminal charges and extradition of citizens of other nations who've offended his delicate sensibilities.

As a player on the world stage, Erdogan and his government will use whatever tools they have available to continue to eliminate their critics. It appears Erdogan is now asking the world's police forces to help him track down journalists he hasn't yet jailed. (h/t Mutlu Civiroglu)

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Erdogan has pushed this country back into a neofeudal theocracy, with all the modern accouterments, like Russia's S-300, added to the mix, and any criticism of anything he does is not tolerated.

Years ago, before he brought in his repressive reign, I would have said that Turkey was on my bucket list; but with him and his minions in power, not anymore.

LAWSUIT: US MILITARY CONTRACTOR DYNCORP ACCUSED OF “ENSLAVING” AMERICAN EMPLOYEES IN KUWAITI TENT CITIES

A recently unsealed lawsuit has accused two U.S. military contractors of treating American citizens working as military translators in the Middle East like “slaves.” The two contractors — DynCorp and its subcontractor, Global Linguist Solutions (GLS) — are alleged to have housed American translators in Kuwait within a poorly maintained tent city and to have threatened the workers with prison time if they tried to escape. The suit is the second lawsuit to be made public this year that accuses a prominent military contractor of treating its employees as slaves.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

DynCorp has had an unsavory reputation for doing things like this in the past; let us hope that there will be a penalty severe enough (like the executives who signed off on this treatment of translators doing hard time in jail) may be enough from preventing such actions in the future.

ARMS RACE: NATIONS HURRY TO DEVELOP HYPERSONIC WEAPONS

There is one big and glaring sign that the United States seeks to thrust the globe back into an arms race. John Bolton is in Moscow to discuss the United States’ intent to withdraw from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty.

There is one big and glaring sign that the United States seeks to thrust the globe back into an arms race. John Bolton is in Moscow to discuss the United States’ intent to withdraw from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty.

These types of weapons would have the ability to travel at five times the speed of sound or more. They could strike at a target while evading missile defenses and hit almost anywhere without any warning deep inside enemy territory.

In March, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced his nation had successfully tested a hypersonic weapon known as the Kinzhal, the Russian word for “dagger.” The video below shows the Russian “Dagger” which is one of the hypersonic weapons currently being developed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The last statement rather perplexes me; I would like to ask Mike Griffin, if it is true that the US did the research, which had to be highly classified, how, please, did the Chinese and Russian arms makers get their hands on it?!?

Or, is it possible, that logic drove both countries to the conclusions as to how the science behind this technology works, without ever having seen the US research on it?

The withdrawal of the US from this arms treaty will be noted as a very sad day in the history of this planet; if there are any humans left from the last great war to mourn its happening, that is.

Cancer-causing' weed killer found in 26 of 28 United States cereals

The weed killer was recently at the center of a trial in which a California jury found Roundup was responsible for giving groundskeeper Dewayne Johnson, 46, terminal cancer.

None of the products in the new report had levels above what is allowed by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), but the EWG argues that customers should be concerned that any levels are being detected in products consumed by children everyday.

In August, the EWG conducted its first study, which found the presence of glyphosate in 45 samples of breakfast cereals from producers Quakers, Kellogg's, and General Mills.

On the heels of this study, the group wanted to dive further and test specifically Quaker Oats and Cheerios products, because high levels of glyphosate were found in the first study and they are two of the most popular cereal brands.

The EPA itself released a statement saying the report should not leave consumers concerned.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If you have any of these products in your home, deep-six them now, and go to an organic equivalent, which states, on its label, no gmos, no pesticides.

Even if it just a little bit of poison your kids are ingesting, it is still...poison.

APPLE REPORTEDLY BLOCKED POLICE IPHONE HACKING TOOL AND NOBODY KNOWS HOW

Apple’s latest iteration of iOS has reportedly turned the GrayKey hacking device into an expensive doorstop. Law enforcement around the world has taken to using GrayKey to break into locked iPhones but it appears Apple has finally gotten ahead of the device’s crafty manufacturers. For now.

It’s still unclear what exact change could have been made to shut GrayKey out. Previous reporting has told us that the tool uses a workaround to brute force its way in by guessing a users’ password until it gets it right. Apple has protections in place to stop that kind of tactic and GrayShift’s methods are a closely held secret. Not much is known about the company. In March, Forbes reported that GrayShift counts at least one ex-Apple security engineer as part of its team. You can’t even view its website without a login given to members of law enforcement, though there have been indications that it works with private entities in some capacity as well.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder just what Apple sacrificed in terms of other "back doors" in smart phones, now demanded of them by police and federal agencies.

MIKE ADAMS: FAKE PIPE BOMB HOAX REVEALS LAST-DITCH DESPERATION OF SELF-VICTIMIZING DEMOCRATS (WHO ARE TERRIFIED OF LOSING THE MID-TERM ELECTIONS)

(Natural News) The “fake pipe bomb” events we all witnessed today are nothing more than Democrats mailing fake pipe bombs to other Democrats.

This is their last, desperate ploy to try to control the outcome of a mid-term election they’re terrified of losing. And with that loss will come the implosion of the Democrat party, the mass arrests of thousands of deep state traitors, and the exposing of the left-wing media as a lying, anti-American “journo-terrorism” operation that despises truth and democracy.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This ploy can only be described as desperation on the cusp of madness.

Since President Trump's 2016 election, all the Dems can appear to do is howl at "the unfairness, the madness of it all", but are totally incapable of coming up with a real plan for how they would guide the country, if they get back into power.

And that issue of "illegal aliens, poised to flood across our nation's southern border", right before the mid-terms,funded and whipped into a frenzy, and supported by the left and George Soros?!? That, too, is (metaphorically speaking) blowing up, collectively in their faces, somewhat like a bad trick cigar!

‘JUST THE BEGINNING’: TOP NEOCON INSIDER CLAIMS RESPONSIBILITY FOR FACEBOOK PURGE, SAYS MORE TO COME

Purge of alt-media by FB is ‘us pushing back, just a beginning’ – censorship insider.

An employee of a leading Washington DC think tank has reportedly taken credit for the resent purge of alternative media by Facebook and Twitter, claiming it to be necessary to fight against ‘fake news’ from Russia and China.
In the latest act of apparent censorship of political speech online, US-based tech giants this month shut down hundreds of user accounts. Some belonged to well-established alternative media outlets with hundreds of thousands of followers, like The Free Thought Project or The Anti Media. A senior fellow at the German Marshall Fund, a leading think tank advocating US global supremacy, seems to have at least partially taken credit for this.

“Russia, China, and other foreign states take advantage of our open political system,” Jamie Fly said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have to wonder, just how much of Jamie Fly's portfolio is focused on defense stocks; I would be willing to think, quite a bit. So in this next global war, he is probably going to make quite a killing, literally and figuratively.

Folks, this is NOT about "Russia and China"; it is those in the very bowels of power in DC, who do not want you to know any reality, other than the codswallop they push down your throat, and expect you to swallow, whole.

It is their narrative they want listened to and followed, as an agenda which demands specific action; this is the reason they are attempting to sensor the Net, because when the next Big War comes, they are going to want you to just sleepwalk into it, with no complaints, and will, again come for your sons, but this time will come for your daughters, after a new military draft is installed.

Folks, we are already in the final phases of a new world war, with Iran, Russia, and China being demonized as the reason the war had to happen. But those at the top of the food chain understand that without a new war, the economy in this country will collapse like a deck of cards, under the weight of Washington's gross negligence, mismanagement, and corruption.

Use other alternative media, like the ones Daisy Luther suggested, and talk to your friends and your family. That unholy triumverate of Facebook, Twitter, and Google need to be put into the fiscal hell of not being used, period, end of discussion.

ISRAEL'S DEFENSE CHIEF SAYS "NO CHOICE BUT WAR" AS FORCES BUILD ALONG GAZA BORDER

We reported over the weekend that Israel has mustered its largest build-up of tanks and armored personnel carriers since 2014 at a deployment area along the border with Gaza and that "all-out war" looks inevitable after weeks of heightened tensions with Hamas. This after special UN envoy for the Middle East, Nickolay Mladenov late last week warned the UN Security Council that "we remain on the brink of another potentially devastating conflict."

It now appears Israel is ready to act, as on Monday Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman told Israeli parliament that he's been left with "no choice" but to launch military action against Hamas militants. Last week rockets were launched from the Gaza Strip, with one landing dangerously near the densely populated city of Tel Aviv, and unrest along the border fence has continued largely unabated for months.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Were I a betting woman, I would bet that the Israeli military will time their assault right around the US mid-terms and the invasion migration will be right at the US borders.

The only kind of "diplomacy" with Hamas of which Israel seems to be capable, is that of killing people dead, in the open air prison which is Gaza.

I have to wonder, how many schools will they blow up this time, harboring terrified children, women, and the medically fragile elderly?!?

That was their tactic in Operation Inherent Resolve in 2014, where a school, to which the IDF had been given the coordinates by the UN, was blown to smithereens.

"COLONIZING EXPERIMENT IN SURVEILLANCE CAPITALISM": PRIVACY EXPERT RESIGNS FROM GOOGLE-BACKED SMART CITY PROJECT OVER SURVEILLANCE CONCERNS

A privacy expert tasked with protecting personal data within a Google-backed smart city project has resigned as her pro-privacy guidelines would largely be ignored by participants.
“I imagined us creating a Smart City of Privacy, as opposed to a Smart City of Surveillance,” Ann Cavoukian, the former privacy commissioner of Ontario, wrote in a resignation letter to Google sister company Sidewalk Labs.

“I felt I had no choice because I had been told by Sidewalk Labs that all of the data collected will be de-identified at source,” she added.

Cavoukian was an acting consultant involved in the plan by Canada’s Waterfront Toronto to develop a smart city neighborhood in the city’s Quayside development. She had created an initiative called Privacy by Design that aimed to ensure citizens’ personal data would be protected.

Once it became apparent that citizen privacy could not be guaranteed, Cavoukian decided it was time to leave the project:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I consider Ms. Cavoukian a very brave woman, to have walked away due to principals of conscience; she knows that walking away from a Google-related company could be hazardous to her professional health, and that there might be hell to pay in her next job search, but she went public with her concerns anyway.

Bravo, Ms. Cavoukian, well done!!

THE NEW SOCIAL MEDIA: ALTERNATIVES TO FACEBOOK, YOUTUBE, TWITTER, AND OTHER BIG TECH PLATFORMS

HERE ARE SOME SOCIAL MEDIA ALTERNATIVES TO CHECK OUT.

Before we get into the alternatives, please understand that all of them will start small. None of them will be able to take on Big Tech without a lot of help and support. We’ve gotten used to free social media because the companies with whom we’ve dealt have virtually raped us, reading our so-called “private” messages, and pillaging our date to sell to the highest bidders. So really, it isn’t that free after all.

You probably won’t find your parents, your best friend from kindergarten, and your Aunt Suzie on these platforms – not yet, anyway. But what you WILL be able to do is speak without fear of censorship. You’ll be able to find your favorite alternative media sources there and find answers that simply aren’t supported by the mainstream.

The only way to change this dystopian atmosphere is to actually make changes ourselves. Go where the freedom is!

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Daisy Luther is a prepper for whom Mike and I have the highest respect.

Please check these alternatives out, and see for yourself!!

SAUDI ARABIA IMPOSES A TRAVEL BAN ON KHASHOGGI’S FAMILY

The Geneva Council for Human Rights and Justice yesterday called on the Saudi authorities to immediately lift a travel ban it has imposed on the family of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, who was killed inside his country’s consulate in Istanbul, Turkey.

The Geneva Council, an international human rights organisation, expressed in a statement to Al-Khaleej Online its strong condemnation of the Riyadh authorities for banning Khashoggi’s family from travelling.

His son, Salah, was also “forced on Tuesday to receive condolences from Saudi King Salman Bin Abdulaziz and Crown Prince Mohammad Bin Salman.”

The rights body said Saudi’s actions are in violation of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights which states: “Everyone has the right to freedom of movement and residence within the borders of each state. Everyone has the right to leave any country, including his own, and to return to his country.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Khashoggi's son was "forced to receive condolences" from the very guy who most likely ordered the hit on Khashoggi?!?

Lord, have mercy; if there were a contest for most dystopian and dysfunctional royal family on the face of this earth, it has to be the House of Saud, hands down.

Does Prince MbS not realize how horrific the optics are on this travel ban for the guy's family, and forcing his son to shake his hand?!?!?

Welcome to crazyville, coming to the world live and direct, right from the House of Saud in Riyadh!!

Twitter Bans More Infowars Accounts, But Leaves Farrakhan Alone

Anti-semitism gets a free pass on Twitter, but conspiracy theorist Alex Jones and company do not.

On October 22, Twitter suspended 18 accounts that were affiliated with conspiracy theorist Alex Jones and Infowars, in a follow up move to the platform’s ban on Alex Jones’ ban on September 6. Twitter had then warned that any accounts linked to Jones and Infowars would be removed. The 18 accounts allegedly were given numerous warnings after many violations.

Not surprisingly, Twitter was influenced by another liberal media outlet in this decision. Just as when CNN and Oliver Darcy influenced the ban on Alex Jones, the Daily Beast’s reporting on accounts linked with Infowars heavily pushed Twitter to take action. The article, written by Will Sommer, reported that “two months after Jones and InfoWars were supposedly shunned, a number of accounts remained live and tweeting.”

Brothers Face $450,000 in Fines for Cutting Trees on Their Own Property Without Asking Gov’t First

In the land of the free, you must ask permission from government before you modify your own property. If you do not first ask for permission and pay them, you can face heavy fines and, or imprisonment. Two brothers in Michigan are learning this the hard way after they cut down trees on their own property. Now the state is telling them to pay up—a half million dollars.

Gary and Matt Percy have been told by their local rulers that because they failed to obtain the proper permit before cutting down 1,400 trees—on their own property—that they now owe $225-$450 per tree.

The brothers own a 16-acre plot of land that they cleared in preparation for planting a Christmas tree farm, according to their attorney Michael J. Pattwell. But they didn’t ask the government for permission first, so now they must pay up.

NATO Sends 50,000 Troops to Largest Exercise Since Cold War

US Marines are landing in Iceland and warplanes are flying overhead in Scandinavia, just days ahead of the kickoff of Trident Juncture. The annual exercise, focused on the Arctic Circle and Scandinavia, is set to be the largest operation since the Cold War.

31 countries are involved, 29 NATO members and Finland and Sweden. They will overall be sending 50,000 troops, 10,000 vehicles, 150 warplanes and 65 ships. Starting Thursday, the exercise will last a month.

And while officials insist it’s not strictly along the Russian border, Russian military officials say it is close enough, and clearly targeted at growing Russian interests in the Arctic Circle, as warmer temperatures open up new route.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF EVER, in its history, this country needed a Department of Peace, to determine how peaceful, hard won negotiations could win the day, rather than through war, it needs such a department right NOW!!

Poking the Russian Bear With the NATO Umbrella

Some terrible foreign policy ideas seem to have eternal life. One example is the proposal to expand NATO yet again by offering membership to Georgia and Ukraine. That campaign has gone on for more than a decade and is a significant factor in the West’s deteriorating relations with Russia.

Despite the intra-Alliance resistance to the Bush administration’s campaign to offer MAPs to Kiev and Tbilisi, though, the outcome of the Bucharest summit was not a total defeat for U.S. ambitions. The summit’s final declaration stated that “NATO welcomes Ukraine’s and Georgia’s Euro Atlantic aspirations for membership in NATO. We agreed today that these countries will become members of NATO.” There was no timetable but the ultimate outcome seemed clear.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Pushing NATO into a war with Russia, and particularly at this juncture in history, is a terrible, terrible mistake.

Unfortunately for the US, just because something would be the most ham-fistedly, pig-headedly stupid thing the US government could do, is utterly no guarantee that the US will not do it.

UN humanitarian chief: 8.4 million Yemenis need urgent aid

The U.N. humanitarian chief says the conflict in Yemen has left 8.4 million people dependent on emergency food assistance and 75 percent of its 22 million people requiring some form of aid.

Mark Lowcock warns in an analysis obtained Monday night by The Associated Press that humanitarian officials "estimate that 3.5 million to 4 million more people could become severely food insecure in the months ahead."

The analysis, which is to be the subject of a briefing to the Security Council on Tuesday, says 3 million Yemenis are malnourished, including 1.1 million pregnant women "and more than 400,000 severely acutely malnourished children."

In a worst case scenario, Lowcock warns that if current trends continue, food needs could increase "by as much as 62 percent."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Martin Lowcock, a word, please.

Because the Saudis and their US allies have blockaded Yemeni ports, the aid you describe will never be allowed to be delivered; that's just the first hard reality here.

You have to understand; from the Saudi perspective, the more Yemeni children assassinated; malnourished, and water-sickened who die under this siege, the happier the House of Saud is with this death and destruction: that is the second hard reality with which you will have to deal.

And all the above, coupled with your grievances, makes the UN look impotent to do anything to stop the carnage in Yemen. There is no international "muscle" in this organisation which can make the aid delivery happen. And here's what this looks like from the Yemeni perspective:

Images: Yemeni children killed or maimed for life from Saudi bombing runs

Images: starving Yemeni kids, dying of malnutrition, courtesy of US-enabled port blockades

Images: Yemeni children dying of cholera, courtesy of Saudi-destroyed water infrastructure plus a possibly weaponized version of the pathogen added to Yemeni water system

Folks, I know that there has been a great deal of attention placed on the assassination of Khashoggi recently. But where were the US politicians when these horrific war crimes against the Yemeni people were, and are continuing to be, perpetrated?!?

They have been no where; and why?!? Because our country's Merchant of Death in Chief, President Trump, believes that the bomb sales this country has done, plus other weapons of war we have sold the Saudis are "good for business."

Economically, of course, he is quite right; people don't want to buy GMO-laced food, or products that break down one day after the product warranty expires, which is pretty much all we have to offer; except for the bombs and bullets we make reasonably well (next to those of China and Russia, of course), and supply them to the highest bidders.

I wish I did not live in a country whose government commits war crimes with impunity, and I wish, by making people aware enough of these war crimes, some peaceful, and reasonable change in the status of how this government does business, and with whom, might happen.

But that is going to take a national movement, which represents us all, for real change to invigorate a national dialogue which is way above party skirmishes; I sincerely hope that this can be accomplished.

SA Lays Out Plans To Use Facial Recognition For Domestic Flights

The TSA has released its roadmap to use biometrics technology in the coming years. The Verge reports:

Customs and Border Protection has been using facial recognition to screen non-U.S. residents on international flights since 2015, a project that was expedited by the Trump administration. Last year, the U.S. government laid out its plans to start expanding the screening tools to U.S. citizens, which would require them to undergo facial scans when they leave the country through a system called the Biometric Pathway. Today's news lays out how the TSA will adopt the same technology, partnering with CBP on biometrics for international travelers, expanding security operations to TSA Precheck members, and eventually, using facial recognition to verify domestic travelers.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Just peachy, TSA; now, instead of having to be at the airport 3 hours earlier than your actual departure or arrival, travelers will need to factor in another 2 hours, if the systems go down or misbehave in any way.

U.S. MEDIA REFUSES TO INFORM THE PUBLIC WHEN ITS COMMENTATORS AND PUNDITS ARE PAID FOREIGN AGENTS

Unbelievably – Rothkopf has the audacity to criticize Trump for having “repeatedly shown great fondness for foreign leaders—even despots and known murderers, human rights abusers and criminals”, while Rothkopf himself is literally a paid agent working to disseminating propaganda for one of the most repressive regimes on the planet, one that does much of the Saudis’ dirty work for it in Washington. And the fact that the Daily Beast makes no disclosure of any of this is what makes this practice – having paid lobbyists and consultants for foreign regimes and corporations masquerade as objective and neutral analysts of the news – such a massive journalistic scandal and fraud.

MICROPLASTICS DETECTED IN HUMAN STOOL SAMPLES FOR FIRST TIME

Humanity has created more than 9 billion tons of plastic since the 1950s, when large-scale production of the material first took off. Of that total, a staggering 76 percent has gone to waste. These days, plastics are found in most table salt, marine life and the deepest parts of the ocean. So it any surprise that they have made it into our bodies, too?

A small study has detected microplastics in human excrement for the first time, raising larger questions about how the tiny particles can affect our health.

Plastic particles were found in all the stool samples of eight participants from Finland, Italy, Japan, the Netherlands, Poland, Russia, the UK and Austria, researchers from the Medical University of Vienna and the Environment Agency Austria found. On average, 20 microplastic particles per 10g of stool were detected.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is officially horrible.

As consumers, we need to demand better packaging for our food, that doesn't have the option of potentially killing us off when we eat the food inside!!

EXPLOSIVE DEVICE MAILED TO LIBERAL PHILANTHROPIST GEORGE SOROS' NEW YORK HOME

An explosive device was found at the Westchester County, New York, home of billionaire philanthropist George Soros on Monday afternoon.

In a statement to NPR, the Bedford Police Department said an employee of the house found a suspicious package in the mailbox. They opened it, revealing what "appeared to be an explosive device." The employee placed the package in a nearby wooded area and alerted authorities.

State and federal authorities responded to the scene in Katonah, a hamlet in the town of Bedford. A bomb squad was able to safely detonate the device, The New York Times reports.

After authorities were contacted, an "extensive investigation" involving the Bedford Police Department, the Westchester County Police Department, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, and the FBI, commenced.

The case has been handed over to the Joint Terrorism Task Force Division of the FBI, the Bedford Police Department says.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder if Soros himself ordered a fake bomb planted in his mail box, to garner some sympathy and encouragement for his "open borders" support, seeing just how well that has gone in Europe, and also seeing the United States under threat of a well-planned and nearly executed invasion, scheduled to hit the US just about at mid-terms here in the US:

KHASHOGGI’S BODY PARTS FOUND IN GARDEN OF SAUDI CONSUL GENERAL’S HOME – SKY NEWS SOURCE

Body parts belonging to murdered journalist Jamal Khashoggi have been found, according to Sky News sources, who added that he had been “cut up” and his face “disfigured.”
The sources’ claim echoes a statement by Do?u Perinçek, leader of the left-wing Vatan party on Monday night. Perinçek told Turkish television that Khashoggi’s “body parts” had been recovered from a well in the Saudi consul’s garden, and added that President Recep Tayyip Erdogan would explain the findings later on Tuesday.

The news comes after Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan demanded Saudi officials reveal the whereabouts of Khashoggi’s remains, after the Saudi government admitted Khashoggi had been murdered, albeit in a “fist fight” with officials inside the consulate in Istanbul.

"Jamal Khashoggi's body parts have been discovered" - Sources have told @AlexCrawfordSky "grisly details" about how Jamal Khashoggi's body parts were discovered.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

While it is certainly not beyond Saudi Arabian royalty to plan such an event (they kill women and children routinely in Yemen, and think not a thing of it), why has the Turkish government not circulated the pictures which would authenticate this alleged find?!?

So, Turkish government, where, please, is the actual evidence this happened?!?

Because without it, your collective credibility is in tatters, if this is some sort of attempt at making the optics of this alleged assassination look even worse than they already are.

JUDGE UPHOLDS LANDMARK MONSANTO VERDICT, BUT SLASHES PUNITIVE DAMAGES BY $211 MILLION

A judge in California on Monday upheld a landmark verdict in a case brought by a terminal cancer patient who successfully argued his illness resulted from his exposure to Monsanto's weedkiller RoundUp, but slashed the damages the agrochemical giant was originally required to pay from $289 million down to just $78 million and said she would order a retrial if former groundskeeper Dewayne "Lee" Johnson rejects the payout.

"The evidence presented to this jury was, quite frankly, overwhelming... We are happy the jury's voice was acknowledged by the Court, even if slightly muted."
—Johnson's team

Jurors had come forward to demand that San Francisco Superior Court Judge Suzanne Bolanos respect their historic verdict, issued in August. The judge had been considering a request for a retrial from Monsanto, but decided (pdf) instead to cut the punitive damages from $250 to $39 million.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder the terms and conditions under which Judge
Bolanos made that big reduction in the judgement.

For a company like the former Monsanto, $39 million is only a slap on the wrist.

And also, please note that no one in the Monsanto group will spend any jail time; how, please, is this humanly possible, when it has been known for years that glyphosate is a carcinogen?

Monsanto only tested rats with Glyphosate-raised corn for only 90 days, because it knew that it was after the 90 day cycle, the damage to the rat's systems would start appearing.

They got Dr. Seralini's research, proving that the chemical had negative consequences after 90 days, redacted from a highly respected scientific journal, and, Dr. Seralini had to go back to court for the damages this act caused his professional reputation.

He won his case, and got the article on this damage republished.

Thanks, Common Core: ACT Scores for Class of 2018 Worst in Decades

The creators of the ACT test announced on Wednesday that scores for the class of 2018 are the worst reported in decades. Math scores, in fact, are in freefall among ACT-tested U.S. high school graduates, falling to their lowest mark in 14 years, according to The Condition of College and Career Readiness 2018, the ACT’s annual report.

The report includes ACT test results from all 50 states and the District of Columbia.

"The percentage of ACT-tested graduates who met or surpassed the ACT College Readiness Benchmark in math—suggesting they are ready to succeed in a first-year college algebra class—fell to its lowest level since 2004," the report declared, with only 40 percent of 2018 graduates meeting the benchmark, "down from a high of 46% in 2012."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unless, and until, Common Core is thrown out of the window, and replaced by a system which encourages math, critical thinking, and mastery of difficult subjects, our kids will continue to fail in real life.

Looking at these numbers, were I a parent with a kid in school, and seeing those numbers, I would pull my kid out of that failing school so quickly that the Principal would be spinning in their chair.

Failed education, unless it is replaced and repaired by extraordinary methods, translates into failed life skills for most kids. That is why parents have to be involved and committed, to make sure their kids are getting the best education possible.

China’s Internet Gatekeeper Pleads Guilty to Bribery

Lu Wei, once the gatekeeper of the internet for the entire population of China, pleaded guilty on Friday to abuse of power and accepting what amounted to US$4.6 million in bribes over the span of his 15-year career.

Lu Wei also made a final statement to the court, and admitted guilt and expressed regret,” Xinhua said.

Wei became the head of the Cyberspace Administration of China (CAC), in 2014, after a career in which he rose to become the director of the state news agency Xinhua, then worked at the Beijing municipal party committee, and the party’s Central Publicity Committee.

As head of the CAC, Wei controlled China’s notorious regime of internet censorship—which included blocking access to Facebook, Google, and Twitter, and introducing criminal charges against citizens who posted banned content.

"Complete Chaos": Russia Slams "Dangerous" U.S. Pullout Of INF Treaty As "Blackmail"

Washington’s planned withdrawal from the international Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty, announced by President Trump on Saturday, has been slammed by Russia as "a very dangerous step" which is ultimately part of "continuing attempts to achieve Russia’s concessions through blackmail" in statements made by Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov on Sunday.

And Russian lawmaker Konstantin Kosachev, who chairs the Russian Parliament’s Upper House Foreign Affairs Committee, warned the move could create a domino effect endangering other landmark deals like the Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (START). The lawmaker said such an outcome pits mankind against “complete chaos in terms of nuclear weapons.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Before President Trump goes ahead with this, I want to see irrefutable evidence that the Russians have actually been creating weapons which the treaty was supposed to have prevented both the US and Russia from creating.

Post President Bush, statements coming from a sitting president, do not mean that those statements are in any way correct in fact; anyone beside me remember Bush's charges about "Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction"?!?!?!?

FBI Admits It Used Multiple Spies To Infiltrate Trump Campaign

The Department of Justice admitted in a Friday court filing that the FBI used more than one "Confidential Human Source," (also known as informants, or spies) to infiltrate the Trump campaign through former adviser Carter Page, reports the Daily Caller.

“The FBI has protected information that would identify the identities of other confidential sources who provided information or intelligence to the FBI” as well as “information provided by those sources,” wrote David M. Hardy, the head of the FBI’s Record/Information Dissemination Section (RIDS), in court papers submitted Friday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am in deep disgust with a government agency which has become so horrifically corrupted that it lies with impunity, as an instrument of
"Gotcha!" politics.

This Is The Worst Case Scenario If Investors Dump Saudi Arabia

So many Wall Street CEOs and other titans of investing and industry have pulled out of next week's "Davos in the Desert" conference that even the Ritz-Carlton, owner of the Riyadh venue hosting the conference (as it did last year), has been slammed by human rights groups over its continued support for Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman and his brutal regime. In perhaps the biggest blow to the conference's clout, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin has opted not to attend, eve as President Trump has insisted that Saudi Arabia's story about the circumstances surrounding the (now confirmed) death of critical journalist (and former government insider) Jamal Khashoggi is "credible". To deflect blame away from MbS, the Saudi leadership has orchestrated a purge of the country's senior intelligence apparatus and arrested 18 other Saudi nationals for their "involvement" in orchestrating and carrying out the killing.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This response reminds me of a line from the Gilbert & Sullivan Operetta, "The Mikado", where the principal states: "I'm very sorry, but it's an unjust world, and virtue is triumphant only in theatrical performances."

And in the coming weeks, we will continue to see the "theatrical performances" of countries and corporations kowtowing to the Saudi royal family and their minions, all for the sake of the money they represent; no crime too horrific, no horrors too excessive, that's just fine!!

And Saudi Arabia will be allowed explain every criminal offensive and repulsive thing that they have done, with the most utterly illogical way possible, like the excuse that Khashoggi died in a fistfight, and the Saudi royal family will expect the rest of the world to collectively swallow this codswallop, as though it were the nectar of the gods.

And we swallow; because... that's the cost of doing business with these people.

We will continue to see horrific human rights prosecutions in Saudi Arabia, particularly those of non-Muslims, enthusiastically pursued, with hands and limbs and throats cut. Christian persecution in Saudi Arabia

We will continue to see female genital mutilations performed in Saudi Arabia,
Female Genital Mutilation, Saudi Arabia

And we will continue to see the US-government-enabled Saudi war against the Houthi rebels in Yemen continue as though it is the most normal thing in the world, because for the US Merchants of Death, and their Merchant of Death in Chief, Donald Trump, war is good for business. After all, who do the Saudis buy their weapons from?!?

Well, folks, here is a birdseye view of this war from the Yemeni side (caution: painfully graphic images): and if you loose your lunch upon viewing these images, good; that means that there is some degree of humanity left in you.

Images: Yemeni kids murdered or maimed for life, courtesy of Saudi bombing runs

Yemeni children dying from starvation, courtesy of US/Saudi blockages of Yemeni ports

Images: Yemeni children dying of cholera, possibly weaponized

But we are so addicted to Saudi oil and Saudi money, we can turn our heads away from horrors this country inflicts on its own people, and the people of other countries, and just collectively shrug our shoulders and simply say to ourselves, "it's just the cost of doing business with these people".

what's wrong with this picture?!?

South Africa City To Begin Confiscating Land From Whites In National "Test Case"

The debate about land redistribution in South Africa has been a passionate one, as many South African cities face a housing crunch that has left hundreds of thousands of people living in informal settlements. Just as this debate is starting to reach a fever pitch, one South African city, Ekurhuleni, is about to embark on what mayor Mzwandile Masina calls "a test case" for the nation: the government is going to seize hundreds of acres of land, from white citizens without paying for it, to build low-cost housing.

Last month, the city voted in favor of pushing forward with "expropriation without compensation". According to ABC News, this was cited by the African National Congress as a legal rule that is necessary in order to distribute land equitably and correct "historic injustices" that took place in the country.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF the land-owners of this farming acreage had any sense whatsoever, they would have left this country long ago, with as much as they could carry with them, and migrate to a country which would be grateful to have them, because of their strong work ethic.

South Africa... is in its opening phases of "Zimbabwefication" , and will most likely be in dire economic and crop yield deficiencies in the very near future.

Giving someone land, with no training or experience in agricultural work, nearly guarantees that the crop yields will fall.

And to those South African banks, which have blithely decreed that even though their former lands have been repossessed by the State, the former owners have to pay off the loans they used for goods and services, I have
one phrase, from the TV show the Sopranos for you: "Furgitaboutit!!"

Judge Orders Mueller To Prove Russian Company Meddled In Election

A Washington federal judge on Thursday ordered special counsel Robert Mueller's team to clarify election meddling claims lodged against a Russian company operated by Yevgeny Prigozhin, an ally of Russian President Vladimir Putin, according to Bloomberg.

Concord Management and Consulting, LLC. - one of three businesses indicted by Mueller in February along with 13 individuals for election meddling, surprised the special counsel in April when they actually showed up in court to fight the charges. Mueller's team tried to delay Concord from entering the case, arguing that thee Russian company not been properly served, however Judge Dabney Friedrich denied the request - effectively telling prosecutors 'well, they're here.'

On Thursday, Judge Freidrich asked Mueller's prosecutors if she should assume they aren't accusing Concord of violating US laws applicable to election expenditures and failure to register as a foreign agent.

Illegal Caravans Encouraged by Honduras and Soros

It is doubtful that such sums came from the kiddies' college funds. Evidence of Soros funding of an earlier "spontaneous" migration have been found among the tentacles of support that flow from his Open Society group coffers:

Several major ultra-liberal foundations and corporations have supported the asylum-seeking migrant caravans, and Soros' funding has been tied to several groups that have spearheaded the "refugee" invasion coalition – also dubbed "the Soros Express."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF the above is proven true, Soros himself needs to be arrested, and charged with a crime of enabling illegal immigration, judged by a jury of his peers, and convicted to a long enough prison term that others will take notice, and not follow suit.

He is also out to control the outcome of the US mid-terms, and has stated so himself, in an interview this year, dated 9 June of this year: with Michael Kranish, for the San Francisco Chronicle:
Billionaire George Soros faces renewed attacks with defiance

The interview goes on to state: "Soros, who plans to spend at least $15 million in 2018 races, has already faced some setbacks this cycle. His bid to replace several district attorneys in California with challengers seeking changes to the criminal justice system was largely unsuccessful in Tuesday's elections. "We ran into a brick wall in California," he said.

Ever since the Supreme Court ruled that corporations should be counted as "people", in the Citizens United case, Citizens United versus the Federal Election Commission,Corporations and organizations have been allowed to spend money for ads, etc., focusing on their First Amendment Right of Free Speech , the US election process has been swamped with corporate, and organisations' money, trying to steer an election in any way they want, and it is fully protected by US law.

THAT needs to change, and soon!!

National security adviser John Bolton is traveling to Russia for talks early next week with top Russian officials that are likely to cover a variety of high-priority issues for the administration.

The trip is Bolton’s first to Moscow since he went to broker the details of the now infamous Helsinki summit between President Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin last July.

The visit comes amid high tensions with Moscow on several fronts, including the conflict in Syria and the poisoning of ex-Russian spy Sergei Skripal in Britain earlier this year.

Bolton is expected in his meetings with Russian officials next week to further discussions on issues that Putin and Trump discussed in July, including Syria, where Moscow says it has delivered a S-300 missile defense system — in defiance of warnings from the Trump administration and Israel.

The talks are also likely to cover Iran, efforts to denuclearize North Korea, Israeli security and nuclear arms treaties.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Whenever this thoroughly unhinged, and very vocal, gentleman racks up the "frequent flyer miles" in behalf of this government, I get very nervous.

And these charges against Elena Khusyaynova?!?

Spybosses warn of foreign interference as Feds unseal new Russia Charges

The NPR article goes on to state: Khusyaynova was charged in a criminal complaint in the Eastern District of Virginia on Friday. She, like the other Russians who have been charged in separate federal criminal cases, is not expected to stand trial in the United States.

"The government has chosen to use legal documents to lay out the case against the people who attacked the 2016 presidential election and have kept up a war of disinformation against the West."

And yet, she, and her alleged accomplices, will not be tried in the US. So what is this nonsense?!?

More Russia bashing, pure and simple. The US government both doesn't have a case, other than putting on a lengthy "show trial" here, upon which it will lavishly spend millions of taxpayer dollars on this sheer foolishness, all in the name of Russia bashing.

And where, please, has the evidence from, to accuse her of "...having kept up a war of disinformation against the West." ?!?!?

Don't the American people have the right to know what specifically she did, which so damaged the American reputation at home and abroad?!?

Or is that, also, "sealed" away from the prying eyes of the people she allegedly dishonored, citizens of the Unhinged, Surveilled State of Amerika?!?

The place Bolton should be visiting right now, rather than Moscow, is Tel Aviv, to ask about the continued pressure from Jewish groups, both in Tel Aviv, and Washington, to keep a very tight wrap on American elections, and insure that only people Tel Aviv and AIPAC-centric will receive the nomination to highest office here in the US.

Of course, that will happen... when pigs discover they are aerodynamic.
