Russiagate or Intelgate?

The publication of the Republican House Committee memo and reports of other documents increasingly suggest not only a “Russiagate” without Russia but also something darker: The “collusion” may not have been in the White House or the Kremlin.

Sandy Hook victim teacher Victoria Soto -- a crisis actress with a background in porn?

Sandy Hook school teacher, "Victoria Soto" is absolutely identified as "Karups DB" model; Kati Majorova or Elise Brown by the incredible micro facial lines that match up perfectly!

The environmental Christmas hangover

"A treeless, gift-free Christmas, where little or no travel is involved, and money usually spent on gifts is donated to an environmental charity, would be the ideal. If you can’t face Christmas without presents, then environmental considerations should be paramount when choosing what to give – not necessarily what to buy. If we are to overcome the environmental catastrophe and reverse the colossal ecological damage, greed, selfishness and excess must come to an end, replaced by simplicity and sufficiency – and a new environmental consciousness urgently cultivated, at Christmas and throughout the year..." >>

Fire the FBI Chief

Did a preventable massacre go unprevented because of bureaucratic failure?
American government is supposed to look and sound like George Washington. What it actually looks and sounds like is Henry Hill from Goodfellas: bad suit, hand out, intoning the eternal mantra: “F*** you, pay me.”

The guiding principle of American law enforcement is that it is easiest to enforce the law on law-abiding people, while enforcing the law on outlaws is something that looks terrifyingly close to hard work.

Israel to deport 37,000 African migrants with a check for $4,400 and a plane ticket to an "undisclosed country in Africa", or be locked up.

Muluebrhan Mesgna walked out of an Israeli immigration office near Tel Aviv clutching a white piece of paper that he worries is his death warrant.
"I feel that [Israel is] killing me — to deport me to Uganda or Rwanda is no less than killing me," said the 30-year-old Eritrean, who has lived in Israel since 2011.
Mesgna is one of hundreds of men from Eritrea and Sudan who have been handed notices giving them a stark choice. They can leave Israel voluntarily, along with a cheque for $4,400 and a plane ticket to an undisclosed country in Africa, or be locked up.

Mueller: No Collusion Between Trump and Putin, But the Russia Card Is Bigger Than Ever

Sheer hypocrisy and crass dishonesty incarnate.

Now, a few days later—and thirteen indictments from one of Mueller’s grand juries, announced by the very same Rosenstein, specifically against more “Russian players” who reportedly “meddled” in the 2016 American elections, but without any connivance by the Trump campaign—and Rosenstein is feted as a veritable savior of the republic by those same commenters. Those Neocons who now selectively support the president and those bitterly anti-Russian Fox pundits (with the possible exception of Tucker Carlson) are absolutely giddy with delight! For too long, in their defense of President Trump against the charge of collusion, they had found themselves in the extremely uncomfortable situation (for them) of having to mount an attempt to exculpate the Russians, or at least lessen their culpability.

Bernie Sanders makes no comments about Russia’s alleged support for him in 2016

US independent Senator Bernie Sanders has remained silent towards allegations by special counsel Robert Mueller about Moscow’s support for him ahead of the 2016 presidential election.

The Vermont lawmaker released a statement to announce stance in the wake of Mueller’s Friday revelations coming from months of investigation into ties between Russia and US President Donald Trump during his 2016 campaign.

According to Mueller’s indictment, the Russians “primarily intended to communicate derogatory information about [then-Democratic candidate] Hillary Clinton, to denigrate other candidates such as Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio, and to support Bernie Sanders and then-candidate Donald Trump.”

Mueller also indicted 13 Russian individuals and three Russian entities over Moscow’s interference, whose operations allegedly started as early as 2014.

School shooter Nikolas Cruz's younger brother, 17, is 'involuntarily committed to a psychiatric facility' following the massacre

The younger brother of Parkland school shooter Nikolas Cruz has been involuntarily committed to a psychiatric facility, according to reports.

Zachary, who turns 18 next week, was removed from his Lantana home on Friday, days after his brother gunned down 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, sources close to the investigation confirmed to the Palm Beach Post.

He was taken to a mental health facility for treatment under the Baker Act, which allows an individual to be temporarily detained for mental health evaluation either on a voluntary or involuntary basis.

The Act allows minors to be held for up to 12 hours, but whether Zachary has been released remains unclear.

On Friday the office of Special Counsel Robert Mueller announced that a federal grand jury indicted 13 Russian nationals, along with 3 Russian entities for ID fraud, conspiracy to commit wire fraud and bank fraud from 2014 through the 2016 elections.

The Russians launched pro-Trump and Pro-Hillary websites and organized pro-Trump and anti-Trump rallies.

The anti-Trump rallies were much more successful.
It’s a lot easier to get leftist sheep out to protest than conservatives who work all day.

Falsehoods And Lies: Inciting War Is A War Crime

The torrent of reckless false accusations against Russia made by the US and its NATO allies is hitting warp speed.

This week saw more baseless allegations of Russian cyber attacks on American elections and British industries.

There were also crass claims by US officials that Russia was behind so-called sonic attacks on American diplomats in Cuba.

Then a Dutch foreign minister was forced to resign after he finally admitted telling lies for the past two years over alleged Russian plans for regional aggression.

Elsewhere, US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson claimed this week during a tour of the Middle East that “the primary goal” of his nation’s involvement in Syria is “to defeat” Islamic State (Daesh) terrorism.

This is patently false given that the US forces illegally occupying parts of Syria are launching lethal attacks on Syrian armed forces who are actually fighting Islamic State and their myriad terrorist affiliates.

America: A Military Nation

Americans like to think of their country as different from those run by military regimes. They are only fooling themselves. Ever since the federal government was converted into a national-security state after World War II (without a constitutional amendment authorizing the conversion), it has been the Pentagon, the CIA, and the NSA that have run the government, just like in countries governed by military dictatorships.

Oh sure, the façade is maintained - the façade that is ingrained in all of us in civics or government classes in high school and college: that the federal government is composed of three co-equal, independent branches that are in charge of the government.

The tribesman sees the gold braiding and brass buttons of his coat and immediately decides that this is a very important person. Again he looks up at the building and says to the doorman, “This is a very great home you have. You must be very important indeed.”

“One Of The Most Vile, Misleading Headlines Of Our Time”: NY Daily News Runs FAKE NEWS Headline Claiming Florida Shooter Was “Trained” By The NRA

In what has been described as one of the most vile, misleading headlines of all time, the left leaning New York Daily News published their Saturday edition with a cover that includes the ridiculous fake news claim that alleged Florida school shooter Nikolas Cruz was actually “trained” by the NRA themselves.

Apparently aiming to give Democrats an assist with their renewed push to disarm the American people, The NY Daily News latched onto the fact that the JROTC program at the school received funding from the NRA as evidence that the shooter himself received training from them.

The problem? The claim is about as misleading as they come, especially when you consider that while it is true that Cruz was at one time a member of the JROTC, so where dozens of other students, some who even HELPED others get out of the school during the shooting itself!

Friday on Fox News Channel’s “The Ingraham Angle,” host Laura Ingraham gave her take on the indictments handed down by special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe regarding interference in the 2016 presidential election.

Ingraham told viewers the indictments illustrated how Russia was still a threat to the United States despite then-President Barack Obama’s dismissal during the 2012 presidential election. She also said Mueller should interview 2016 Democratic Party presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, former Secretary of State John Kerry, former National Security Advisor Susan Rice, former Deputy National Security Advisor Ben Rhodes and former President Barack Obama as part of his investigation.

History of violence: Florida shooter HIT his adoptive mother with a vacuum hose, threw chairs and a dog bowl at her prompting dozens of police call outs yet STILL he was able to legally buy an AR-15 assault rifle

The Florida school shooter's violent history reveals his mother called police multiple times to report angry outbursts against her, but without any felony convictions or psychiatric holds, he was legally able to purchase a gun.

The police were called to the Cruz family home 39 times since 2011. Now CNN reports that his adoptive mother, Lynda Cruz, bore the brunt of outbursts so angry, that she would often call the cops on her son, Nikolas Cruz.

According to police incident reports Cruz in one instance threw chairs, a dog bowl and a drinking glass around the home, and in another he hit his adoptive mother with the plastic hose of a vacuum cleaner.

Police would often respond, along with mental health professionals that were aware of Cruz's case history.

Uranium One: The Real ‘Russiagate’ Belongs to the Clintons

What if Hillary Clinton were really the one who previously had a controversial connection with Russia? As NBC News reported, the Department of Justice questioned several FBI agents a few days ago under orders from Attorney General Jeff Sessions. The questioning concerned some evidence that federal authorities have gathered about the sale of Uranium One to Rosatom, a Moscow state-owned enterprise established in 2007, which is also the body which regulates all nuclear assets in the Russian Federation. This is the Clintons’ “Russiagate.” Maybe it’s less famous than the one involving president Donald Trump, but it’s certainly less nebulous. According to the allegation, when Hillary Clinton was secretary of state, she used her position to help Russia gain control of a fifth of American uranium reserves in exchange for depositing millions of dollars into her family’s foundation, the Clinton Foundation.

The Incarceration of Tariq Ramadan, a Travesty of Justice

The unjust incarceration of Dr Tariq Ramadan, Professor of Contemporary Islamic Studies at Oxford University, demeans and disgraces the French legal system.

Tariq has been detained in a solitary cell in the high security wing of Paris’s Fleury-Merogis prison since the 2nd of February 2018. It is alleged that he raped two women in Lyon and Paris in 2009 and 2012 respectively. A criminal investigation is being carried out in order to build a case against him. He has no access to his family and is not even allowed to communicate with them through the phone.

It should be emphasised that it was Tariq who voluntarily went to the police in Paris on the 31st of January to answer the allegations against him. He has cooperated fully with the investigating authorities. And yet he has been treated harshly.

INCENTIVES MATTER: AFTER BACK SURGERY, A ROUTINE URINE TEST RESULTED IN A $17,800 BILL THE PATIENT WAS EXPECTED TO PAY

At a followup visit a year after Elizabeth Moreno had a disk removed to successfully treat her crippling pain, her doctor asked her to leave a urine sample; a few months later, Sunset Labs LLC of Houston sent her a bill for $17,800.

Moreno's doctor had seemingly ordered the urine test to ensure that she hadn't abused her post-operative opioid pain medication, but he didn't just order tests for opioids: he also asked the lab to check for indicators of "cocaine, methadone, anti-anxiety drugs and several other drugs she had never heard of" including amphetamines and PCP.

Those unnecessary tests could certainly raise the price on a simple urine test, but it gets worse because of Sunset Labs' crazy price-gouging: the amphetamine test was $1,700 and the PCP test was $425. The lab also charged an eye-popping $850 for a pair of simple tests meant to detect tampering with the sample.

The so-called petro-yuan is a “wake up call” for investors who haven’t paid attention to the Chinese plans, according to the head of Graticule Asset Management Asia Adam Levinson, as quoted by Bloomberg.

The US Is Permanently Occupying Northern Syria, and That’s Trouble

When President Barack Obama started bombing Syria in 2014, he enjoyed bipartisan support in Washington, D.C. Americans were appalled by the atrocities of the Islamic State, which had massacred Yazidis, and seized swaths of territory in Syria and Iraq.

At the time I warned that, far from being a humanitarian intervention, this action threatened to precipitate yet another Middle East war: “Once again, the United States is waging an open-ended war with no concern for the long-term well-being of the people in the region.”

Pope Francis says he’s on ‘waiting list’ for sainthood as Chilean sex abuse survivor testifies in NY

Pope Francis admitted Saturday that he can sometimes struggle with modern technology while joking that both he and his predecessor are on the “waiting list” for sainthood.

“I don't know how to use online networks and that kind of thing, not even mobile phones, I don't have one,” the 81-year-old pontiff told his audience in Rome. “I don't know how to use the internet. When I have to send an email I write it by hand and a secretary sends it for me,” he added.

Pope Francis also announced that Pope Paul VI, who died in 1978, and is widely credited as a reformer within the Catholic faith, will be canonized as a saint later in 2018. More than 80 popes are recognized as saints by the Catholic Church while many more have been beatified, or declared to be among the blessed and entitled to specific religious honor and veneration.

Hundreds of young people wearing dark clothes and carrying torches have marched through the streets of the Bulgarian capital of Sofia to pay tribute to General Hristo Lukov, who served as war minister in the country in 1935-1938.

The march, which stirred controversy in local media, has ended in laying wreaths near the house of Lukov who was known for fostering Bulgaria’s ties with the Third Reich and limiting the rights of local Jewish communities.

The event was also attended by right-wing activists from the European countries, such as Germany, Sweden, Hungary and Estonia. They called Lukov a “Bulgarian war hero.”

Czech agent claims Ken Livingstone, John McDonnell and Jeremy Corbyn were ALL spying for the Russians along with 12 other senior Labour figures

Jeremy Corbyn, John McDonnell and Ken Livingstone were among a group of at least 15 Labour figures who passed information to the Soviet Union, a former Eastern-bloc agent has claimed.

Former Czechoslovak spy Jan Sarkocy said the hard-Left politicians were 'great sources' in the 1980s.

Mr Sarkocy, 64, claims there is 'no question' Mr Corbyn and his Labour colleagues knew he was a spy and said: 'Everything was absolutely clear at the time.'

Mr Livingstone, then a Labour MP, was a 'good boy', the Czech agent told the Sunday Telegraph.

He said he had met 'about '10 or 15' Labour MPs but did not name them.

Merkel, Seehofer & Schulz named ‘worst German politicians’ of 2017 – poll

Germans have named their worst politicians of 2017. Angela Merkel, Horst Seehofer and Martin Schulz, who are struggling to form a ruling coalition, have scored the best of the worst, a new poll has found.

The results of the survey, conducted by the Kantar Emnid pollster on behalf of the Funke media group, was published by German media Thursday. Merkel, Seehofer and Schulz were named the three worst politicians of the year, spurred on by the inconclusive general election outcome in September which triggered a lengthy political crisis. All three 'losers' of the poll are, however, currently in negotiations to form a government. So far, all attempts to create a coalition have been in vain.

Some incidents involved multiple women or children claiming they were abused by more than one perpetrator.

In 131 cases the victim said they had been made pregnant by their attacker with many of the mothers being children when they were abused.
