He was then asked to draw his experiences while under the influence. The experiment was facilitated by Oscar Janiger, a University of California-Irvine psychiatrist known for his work on acid.

Jussie Smollett: Judge calls alleged hate hoax 'despicable'

A Chicago judge has said charges that US actor Jussie Smollett staged a hoax hate crime against himself are "utterly outrageous" and "despicable" if true.

The 36-year-old African-American actor is accused of filing a fake police report claiming he was the victim of a homophobic and racist assault.

Judge John Fitzgerald Lyke, who is also black, said the "most vile" part of the incident was the use of a noose.

Privacy fears as bosses deploy high-tech fitness trackers to spy on employees - and could even use them to decide who to fire

Soon, your boss may want to keep an eye on you in more ways than just whether or not you're at your desk.

A growing number of employers are urging their staff to wear company-provided fitness trackers with the incentive that they'll receive quarterly payouts for reaching step goals, in addition to other rewards like insurance reimbursements.

In exchange, bosses are supplied with detailed data on their employees, ranging from their daily steps, hours spent sitting down, heart rate and sleep quality, according to the Washington Post.

We Have Been Criminalized by an Overabundance of Laws

Governments have learned that laws can be used as revenue and control measures by criminalizing more and more of human activity. Indeed, in many instances the term “criminal” is now meaningless as law enforcement has become a greater threat to ordinary people than actual criminals.

Self-blinded, hyper-biased mainstream media has turned “fact checking” into a mockery of itself

“Fact checking” may have been founded on the premise of spreading truth, but in today’s world, “fact checkers” serve only to spread propaganda. In addition to left-leaning “fact checker” sites, we now have “fact checkers” surveying social media to stamp out dissent and “fact checker” applications for mobile devices and web browsers to label and censor “unapproved” content. -- While “fact checking” was once a valuable asset for discerning truth, it is now nothing more than a tool of oppression. The Left has gone so far to corrupt “fact checking” that the real meaning of “truth” in and of itself may also soon be forgotten.

As Ardern & Morrison meet, Germany set to follow UK in clearing Huawei

There has been yet another Huawei complication ahead of Jacinda Ardern and Scott Morrison's meeting in Auckland today - where topics are expected to include the Chinese telco giant's participation, or otherwise, in 5G mobile network upgrades.

Germany now looks poised to follow the UK in clearing Huawei.

Dow Jones reports that a recent probe by Germany's cybersecurity agency with help from the US and other allies failed to show that the Chinese company could use its equipment to clandestinely syphon off data, according to senior agency and other government officials.

Chinese port bans Aussie coal, move seen as retaliation for Huawei ban

A major port in northern China has reportedly banned coal imports from Australia in a sign that Beijing may be flexing its economic muscles and warning nations not to bar its next-generation wireless technology.

The indefinite coal restrictions at Dalian started this month and are part of an overall plan to cap imports into the customs region this year, Reuters reported, citing an unnamed Dalian Port Group official.

China's foreign ministry wouldn't say if it was specifically targeting Australia, only that it regularly inspects coal imports for environmental reasons, international wire service Bloomberg said.

The move may be a shot across the bows of Australia, which last year followed the US in banning Chinese telecommunications giant Huawei Technologies Co from its 5G network on security concerns.

The Tactical Industry and the Erosion of Constitutional Rights

When we put things together and view the totality of circumstances, we see a police agency in a red flag law state destroying confiscated firearms. We have a popular company in the industry aiding them (interestingly, committing a federal felony in one of the pictures). This insight can give viewers the perception that the Police may have taken these firearms without due process in one of these red flag cases. That might sound like a bit of a leap in logic, mixed in with assumptions- but there is more to the story.

A man trying to enjoy his meal in a Massachusetts’ Mexican restaurant was assaulted because he was wearing a pro-Trump “Make America Great Again” hat. A woman has been charged with assault and battery after knocking the man’s hat off his head.

The alleged assailant, 41-year-old Rosaine Santos, told police she did it because the man was a “motherf****r” for supporting Donald Trump. The police report also indicates that she demanded the man be barred from eating in the restaurant.

Audi Just Invented Fuel Made From CO? and Water

An Audi research facility in Dresden, Germany, has managed to create the first batches of diesel fuel with a net-zero carbon footprint — made from carbon dioxide (CO2), water and renewable energy sources such as wind or solar power.

Germany’s government has welcomed the new technology, created in partnership with a greentech company called Sunfire. Johanna Wanka, Germany’s Federal Minister of Education and Research, even test drove the fuel and called it, “a crucial contribution to climate protection and the efficient use of resources,” according to an Audi press release.

WATCH: Conservative Activist Assaulted While Protesting Jussie Smollett’s Hate Hoax

A conservative activist protesting fake hate crimes like the Jussie Smollett story, himself became the victim of a political hate crime when he was violently assaulted.

The apparent victim of the attack was helping to recruit for Turning Point USA, a conservative youth organization.

Recruiters, standing in front of a table with the factually correct sign stating “hate crime hoaxes hurt real victims,” were approached by detractors on several occasions throughout the day at the University of California, Berkeley.

But one individual violently crossed the line when he threatened to shoot one of the conservative students, knocked his phone out of his hand, and delivered a punch to the head.

We are headed for a train wreck in this country because of the national debt and yet nobody seems concerned about it.

According to Seeking Alpha‘s report by Schiff Gold, we should all we wary of the government’s overspending and desire to tax more to make up for it.

A Recession Indicator Having A PERFECT Record For 70 Years Is About To Be Triggered

This isn’t the only indication that a recession is creeping up on the United States. Other signs are there if you choose to look past the glassy-eyed talking heads in the media. Retail sales were so bad in December of 2018, that many say it had to be “suspect data” and not the simple fact that the economy isn’t as strong as many would have you believe. If the data was not suspect than a recession is on the way. And with retail stores closing at an alarming rate, it isn’t surprising to hear retail sales have dropped.

Russian new hypersonic missile can breach any defense: expert

Russia's new hypersonic Tsirkon missiles can pierce any air defense systems or missile shields, Russian military expert and retired rear admiral Vsevolod Khmyrov said Thursday.

"There is no protection from it," Khmyrov told reporters, after President Vladimir Putin in his annual address to the Federal Assembly on Wednesday announced that Russia is successfully developing the new weapon.

Putin said the Tsirkon missile fired from surface ships or submarines can reach a speed of approximately Mach 9 (about 11,000 kph) and strike a target more than 1,000 km away underwater or on the ground.

According to Khmyrov, if a carrier with Tsirkon missiles is located at a distance of 500 km from the coastline, the missiles will be able to reach targets of at least 500 km from the coastal strip in five minutes.

During this time, it is possible to detect the missiles but not intercept them, Khmyrov said.

Five heavily armed U.S. ‘mercenaries’ were arrested in Haiti. Why were they allowed to fly straight home?

A group of heavily armed men — including five American citizens — who were arrested in Haiti at the weekend have been inexplicably allowed to leave the country.

As riots over corruption engulfed the nation, the eight men were captured Sunday in the capital Port-au-Prince by Haitian police. In their vehicles — which had no external number plates — were found automatic weapons, pistols, a telescope, satellite phones, drones and ballistic vests. Fake number plates were also found.

The men, apprehended near the country’s central bank, said they were on a “government mission,” when stopped by police. Police spokesman Michel-Ange Louis-Jeune said the men refused to say anything else except that they would call their unidentified bosses. Which “government” the men spoke of was never made clear.

America’s Burgeoning Imperial Presidency

The above could easily be taken from a new best seller about President Donald Trump in any modern Christian bookstore. (If you doubt that, read this report). But it’s not. The book is entitled Hitler’s Cross and was authored by Erwin Lutzer almost 25 years ago. The focus of the book was the way Germany’s pastors and churches blindly adored and slavishly obeyed Adolf Hitler.

Mind you, I am NOT comparing Donald Trump to Adolf Hitler. I AM, however, comparing the blind adoration and slavish submission that today’s evangelical pastors and churches exhibit toward Donald Trump to the blind adoration and slavish submission that Germany’s pastors and churches exhibited toward the German leader.

The spirit being exhibited by a majority of evangelical pastors and Christians toward President Trump is more than respect and appreciation: It is unabashed idolatry. Trump is a god for millions.

It Snowed Twice in Las Vegas This Week — and More Is Coming for Arizona

The idea of jetting off to Las Vegas typically conjures up thoughts of warm weather, sunny days, and maybe catching a show or two. However, if you’re heading to Vegas this week hoping for summer-like weather, we’re sorry to inform you, you bet on the wrong time.

Snow — yes, snow — fell last night on the Las Vegas Strip thanks to a winter storm making its way through the Southwest. According to NBC, the city of Henderson, Nevada, which sits just southeast of Las Vegas, received nearly an inch of snow Wednesday night. Temperatures fell to the low 30s, according to the National Weather Service, making it a prime spot for the white stuff to fall.

The Cuban Missile Crisis erupted in 1962 when Moscow responded to a U.S. missile deployment in Turkey by sending ballistic missiles to Cuba, sparking a standoff that brought the world to the brink of nuclear war.

FBI Official Admits To Infiltrating Trump Campaign - Just Don't Call It Spying

A top FBI official admitted to Congressional investigators last year that the agency had contacts within the Trump campaign as part of operation "Crossfire Hurricane," which sounds a lot like FBI "informant" Stefan Halper - a former Oxford University professor who was paid over $1 million by the Obama Department of Defense between 2012 and 2018, with nearly half of it surrounding the 2016 US election.

According to portions of transcripts published on Tuesday by the Epoch Times of a Aug. 31, 2018 deposition by Trisha Anderson, the FBI relied on sources who "already had campaign contacts" in order to surveil the Trump team.

Cuba denies military in Venezuela, charges U.S. readies intervention

Cuba denied on Tuesday it has security forces in Venezuela and charged the statements were part of an orchestrated campaign of lies paving the way for military intervention in the South American country.

U.S. President Donald Trump and members of the administration have charged that Cuba's security forces and military control Venezuela's and that troops are also on the ground there.

"Our government categorically and energetically rejects this slander," Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez said at a Havana press conference, adding all of the some 20,000 Cubans in Venezuela were civilians, most health professionals.

Discussion of Roger Stone’s social media post about the judge handling his case went off the rails on CNN, when analyst and former adviser to four presidents, David Gergen, made some controversial suggestions about what could happen to Stone in prison.

Gergen’s comments came as the panel discussed Stone’s ill-advised Instagram posting about U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson, which featured her image with crosshairs next to it.

“Through legal trickery Deep State hitman Robert Mueller has guaranteed that my upcoming show trial is before Judge Amy Berman Jackson,” Stone wrote on Instagram.

Putin Threatens US Soil If Missiles Deployed in Europe

Russian President Vladimir Putin, during his annual presidential address to the legislature Wednesday, criticized the United States for ignoring the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) treaty by deploying missile launchers in Romania and Poland.

"First it started developing and using intermediate-range missiles it deceitfully called targets for missile defenses. Then it began to deploy the Mk-41 launchers in Europe, capable of using intermediate range cruise missiles Tomahawk for combat purposes," he said.

"By doing all this the United States blatantly ignored the provisions contained in articles 4 and 6 of the INF Treaty."

Russia will respond to any U.S. deployment of short or intermediate-range nuclear weapons in Europe by targeting not only the countries where they are stationed but the United States itself, Putin warned.

Scandals have struck the Catholic Church for decades, with pressure increasing after journalistic and judicial investigations revealed patterns of sexual abuse and cover-ups.

Further cases in 2018 heightened the crisis - some senior bishops have said the issue puts the very credibility of the Catholic Church at stake.

The world's best-selling drug costs SIX times more in the US than the UK because Big Pharma is gaming the American patent system

The best-selling drug in the world, Humira, costs patients five times more in the US than in the UK - but no one else can make a competitor.

Humira, which treats a number of diseases including rheumatoid arthritis, made its maker, Abbvie, $18 billion in 2017.

And it can continue jacking its price up because the American patent system - and the company's abuse of it - keeps any other company from making a competing drug.

Abbvie has filed 247 different patents for, effectively, the same drug, keeping a monopoly on it for 39 years.

State-Sponsored Cyberattacks Are On The Rise

Is this another case of “seek and ye shall find” or have U.S. foes actually been increasingly resorting to cyberwars when they feel threatened by the world’s only superpower?

Well, it’s probably not a coincidence that China and Iran, two nations whose relations with the U.S. have recently taken a turn for the worse, having escalated cyberattacks against the country with China even overtaking Russia as the biggest source of state-sponsored cyberattacks.

I wish you would. … A Democratic president can declare emergencies as well.”

Her fellow Democrats, Sens. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., and Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., quickly agreed. Warren tweeted: “Gun violence is an emergency. Climate change is an emergency.”

Make no mistake, the so called Venezuela crisis has been engineered through economic sanctions and plotted in Washington for many years, Gilbert Mercier, a French journalist, geopolitical analyst, and editor-in-chief of the News Junkie Post, told Sputnik.

He recalled that Washington's 2002 coup attempt plotted by Elliott Abrams, Donald Trump's current Venezuela special envoy, failed in Venezuela.

Democrats in the US House of Representatives are beginning a campaign to oust President Donald Trump from office, with former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen’s testimony to the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, the committee’s senior Republican Congressman Jim Jordan charged on Thursday.

"Chairman [Elijah] Cummings first major hearing will feature Michael Cohen as phase one of the Democrats’ coordinated campaign to remove the president from office," Jordan said in a press release.

Cummings took over the Oversight Committee after Democrats gained control of the House in November’s mid-term elections.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Small technicality. The House can impeach, but only the Senate can remove.

'Dumbest F***ing Idea I've Ever Heard': Lindsey Graham Blasts Trump's Syria Plan

President Trump's announcement that the US would be withdrawing its entire contingent of 2,000 troops from Syria amid the defeat of Daesh (ISIS)* has shaken pro-war officials and lawmakers across Washington, prompting to a string of resignations of senior administration members, including (now-ex) Pentagon chief Jim Mattis.

Senior South Carolina Republican Senator Lindsey Graham, a long-time critic of Donald Trump's foreign policy, has lashed out at acting Defence Secretary Patrick Shanahan on the Pentagon's Syria policy. The Washington Post detailed the harsh exchange between Graham and Shanahan at the Munich Security Conference last week, which reportedly included the senator blasting the defence secretary on the US' 30 April withdrawal deadline.

Russia to Press for Putting “White Helmets” on Trial for Crimes in Syria

Russia will press for putting the White Helmets on trial for crimes committed in Syria, including faked videos of chemical attacks, the director of the Foreign Ministry’s department of new challenges and threats, Ilya Rogachyov, told TASS in an interview on February 20.

“The leading Western countries have failed to place the struggle against terrorism above their own time-serving political interests. In the sphere of international counter-terrorist cooperation various selective approaches thrive. Terrorists are rated as ‘bad’ and ‘not very bad’. Countries are being forced to agree with the concept of ‘resistance to violent extremism’ and its dangerous elements that create situations for ousting ‘disfavored’ governments,” Rogachyov said. “The Western sponsors are keen to present the contractors on their payroll in a favorable light as ‘envoys of peace’ in order to use this as a cover to push ahead with political destabilization scenarios.”

Yellowstone Supervolcano Eruption Fears SPIKE As Geysers Become More Active

Some of Yellowstone’s geysers have been more active lately reigniting fears that the massive supervolcano will erupt. The sudden bursts of steaming hot water highlight the dramatic nature of Yellowstone while reminding us we are all at the caldera’s mercy.

While average people seemed concerned, geologists seemed excited and thrilled when Yellowstone’s steamboat geyser began erupting again in 2018. It has been erupting as often as once a week since last March, according to National Geographic, and scientists continue to say the volatile activity is not a sign of an imminent eruption. The Yellowstone Volcano Observatory reported that Steamboat has now set a record by erupting a whopping 32 times in 2018, a personal best for the geyser for a single calendar year. It’s the world’s tallest active geyser, and at the best of times, it can shoot hot water 300 feet into the air. However, it isn’t just the Steamboat Geyser that has been concerning people.

"Consequences for NATO": Germany Rebuffs UK Call To Back Off Saudi Arms Freeze

Germany is feeling the pressure from western allies over its weapons exports freeze in the wake of the Saudi killing of Jamal Khashoggi, a freeze first announced in November, which included plans to reject any future export licences to Riyadh, but not previously approved deals.

German allies like the UK have lately implored the German government to soften its stance, noting the potential broader economic impact on Europe. British foreign minister Jeremy Hunt, currently in Berlin to discuss the terms of Brexit, reportedly wrote to the German foreign minister, Heiko Maas, in a private letter first revealed by Der Spiegel that UK defense companies would be hindered in contractual obligations related to Eurofighter Typhoon and the Tornado fighter jet delivery, namely to supply parts affected by the German arms freeze.

The Nightmare Fairyland Of The Green New Dealers

When a small child runs around waving their arms saying, “I’m a bird, I’m a bird,” we often will say what a creative imagination they have. If an adult runs around doing the same, we usually say that that person needs help because they are clearly out of touch with reality. Anyone who takes the time to read the proposed Green New Deal legislation can only conclude that the authors are living in a fairyland that is also deeply out of touch with reality.

Read through the list of desired and, indeed, demanded activities the congressional sponsors say they want the federal government to undertake over the next decade. The sponsors resemble a child running around the toy store saying, “I want that, and that, and that, and that, and…” while all the time completely oblivious to the fact that everything they want costs money that their parents do not have an unlimited quantity of.

Is Venezuela On The Verge Of Becoming Another Syria?

Establishment elites have always had a predilection for regime change. Obviously, this strategy helps weed out nation states that might be uncooperative with their future plans for a fully centralized global economic and political order. We have also seen regime change occur when former puppet leaders go rogue and refuse to follow the script they have been given. Most of these men have acted as dictators and are not very empathetic public figures, so we rarely care when they get overthrown or murdered. That said, there are always wider implications to such events.

Taiwan's Leader Says Threat Of Chinese Invasion "Growing Every Day"

President Trump's at times warm, at times contentious relationship with his Chinese counterpart has been an exercise in cognitive dissonance that's reflective of a broader truth about the relationship between the world's two largest economies.
