The Causes of the “Civil War” in the Words of Abraham Lincoln and Jefferson Davis

“When [the states] entered into the Union of 1789, it was with the undeniable recognition of the power of the people to resume the authority delegated for the purposes of that government, whenever in their opinion, its functions were perverted and its ends defeated . . . the sovereign States here represented have seceded from that Union, and it is a gross abuse of language to denominate the act rebellion or revolution.”

–Jefferson Davis, First Inaugural Address, Montgomery, Alabama, February 1861.

Lincoln asserted that it was not voluntary, and was more like what future generations would come to know as the Soviet Union – held together by force and bloodshed.

“US Foreign Policy Is the Greatest Crime Since WWII,” Former US Attorney General Ramsey Clark

The US Secretary of State’s criminally insane back handed remarks favoring a civil war, with all the probable loss of lives a civil war would bring, seems to fit as appropriate within a US foreign policy of world domination. Human suffering has never been of any consequence to the financial interests of that 1/10 of 1 per cent of Americans who, to one degree or another, rule us all.

That is the way it has been since the end of the Second World War, a war made possible by US investments and joint ventures in the rearming of Nazi Germany,[ 2] a war that made the USA rich and the first all powerful single superpower.

Why Russian Chief Rabbi Stands by Vladimir Putin

Lazar’s work, his Russia boosterism and his ties to the Kremlin — he is sometimes called “Putin’s rabbi” — has helped Chabad’s Russian branch eclipse all the Jewish groups vying to reshape the country’s community of 250,000 Jews. Now Lazar heads a vast network that comprises dozens of employees and plentiful volunteers working in hundreds of Jewish institutions: schools, synagogues, community centers and kosher shops.

But Lazar and Putin’s relationship seems to go deeper than political expediency. In 2012, Lazar led the Russian leader on a tour of Jerusalem’s Western Wall. And last year Putin made Lazar a member of Russia’s prestigious Merit to the Fatherland order, the country’s highest civilian decoration and one that is rarely conferred on people who were not born in Russia. (Lazar became a Russian citizen in 2000.)

Hundreds Arrested in Massive Child Sex Ring in California, Including Entertainers, Community Leaders and Clergy

The Department of Justice conducted a series of raids across Los Angeles and arrested 238 people in connection with a Hollywood pedophilia network in June, but this story went totally ignored by almost all media outlets.

According to police, the arrests included some entertainers, community leaders, white-collar professionals, a monk, and other high-ranking clergy members.

The raids were conducted by the Los Angeles Regional Internet Crimes Against Children task force, working directly with the Justice Department.

Codenamed “Operation Broken Heart III”, the sweeping raids targeted offenders wanted for the sexual exploitation of children, child prostitution, sex tourism and possessing and distributing child pornography, said Deputy Chief Matt Blake of the Los Angeles Police Department.

Police stated that they are unable to release any names at this point, but confirmed that the arrested included some “household names” in the entertainment industry.

How the SHTF in Bosnia: Selco Asks Americans, “Does this sound familiar?”

Selco shares the similarities between our situation in the US and the one in Bosnia when the SHTF there during the war.

While we might like to think it could never happen here, the current events here are eerily similar to what happened there in the 1990s.

When you read this. think about recent events. The anger about immigration. The destruction of Civil War monuments. The unease between the races. The deep rage about the recent presidential election. The scorn and derision for neighbors who think differently. The way the media fans the flames of dissent between our fellow Americans.

You'll realize that it definitely CAN happen to us.

Bill Murray Praises Republican Tax Cuts – ‘It’s a Fantastic Thing’

In a wide-ranging interview with CNBC, actor and comedian Bill Murray took a moment to praise the Republican tax cuts, calling them a “fantastic thing” and noting most Americans believed “there was probably too much regulation” anyway, something President Trump has successfully slashed at record rates during his first year in office.

“The change in the tax law is a great thing for the corporations, it’s a fantastic thing,” Murray said.

The Ghostbusters, Caddyshack and Groundhog Day legend compared the Trump Administration’s tax overhaul to that of a “high tide raising all boats,” adding he believes it has made things “easier.”

“I don’t pretend to understand what that will mean in the future in terms of the economy or what the budget will have to do to take care of what people call entitlements,” Murray surmised.

Twitter Shocked: Dutch Senate Passes Law Making People's Organs 'Gov't Property'

The Netherlands has passed a controversial new law making every citizen a potential organ donor unless they specifically chose to opt out.

The upper house of the Dutch parliament approved the new donor law on Tuesday by just a slim majority, while the lower house of parliament passed the bill 18 months ago.

Under the new legislation, every person over 18 will be included in the organ donor register unless they specifically say they don't want to be.

Every Dutch adult who is not yet registered as a donor will receive a letter asking whether or not they want to become donors after death. If they don't respond to the first letter, a second one will be sent and if it goes unanswered they will automatically be added to the donor list.

Robert Parry: The Man Who Believed In Alternative Journalism

The fight against all that is corrupt, misguided, maliciously intended and simply wrong in our national life instantly seemed still more forlorn than the sentient among us already understand it to be. One keeps on — there is no alternative. But the slope where the stone of Sisyphus rolls ever downward seems steeper now, and certainly it is a lot lonelier.

Given the expressions of grief and sorrow that flowed all week, I take it I do not have to explain at length who Bob Parry was. As an Associated Press reporter in the 1980s he broke some of the biggest stories of the decade, notably the scandal known as Iran–Contra.

Great Place To Drop This Pro Trump/Fake NEWS Piece

ISIS is losing badly. Should Trump or Obama get the credit?
http://m.washingtonexaminer.com/isis-is-losing-badly-should-trump-or-o...

It is becoming increasingly clear that the Islamic State is on the ropes in Iraq and Syria, and its defeat is just a matter of time.

What is less clear is whose strategy produced the victory.
***
The president himself declared Thursday that more progress in the campaign to defeat Islamic State had been made in the last eight months than in "many, many previous years, all combined."

But former Defense Secretary Ash Carter, in a lengthy essay published by Harvard's Kennedy School of Government, argued the Trump administration is crowing about the results of what is essentially Obama's strategy>>>
***
But it is clear the military favored the Trump approach, as evidenced by the parting comments of Lt. Gen. Stephen Townsend as he prepared to relinquish command of the counter-ISIS operation in August.

"We don't get second-guessed a lot. Our judgment here on the battlefield in the forward areas is trusted. And we don't get 20 questions with every action that happens on the battlefield and every action that we take," Townsend said. "I don't know of a commander in our armed forces that doesn't appreciate that."

(*So , you see ? Fake NEWS doesn't just sprinkle The Democrats . And of course , Pat Buchanan is putting it out there that Trump is getting sucked into the Syrian thing , so I guess we get to chose the way it's going in Syria . The most optimistic is; Trump's policy has gotten us further into where we are in Syria today , then Obamas )

Israeli foreign ministry to boycott Paris Film Festival over choice of ‘Foxtrot’ for opening

The Israeli foreign ministry said Sunday that Israeli diplomats in France would boycott the ceremonial opening of the Israeli Film Festival in Paris in May, after festival organizers rejected a ministry "suggestion" not to feature the film Foxtrot to open the festival. The film, directed by Samuel Maoz and starring Israeli actors Lior Ashkenazi and Sarah Adler, is the story of a Tel Aviv couple who receive news that their son, an IDF soldier, has been killed in the line of duty. Israeli Culture Minister Miri Regev has been a strident critic of the film due to its portrayal of Israeli soldiers who conspire to cover up the murder of four Arab youths. The film won the Silver Lion award at the Venice Film Festival last September, prompting a furious condemnation from Regev, who has said the story "slanders" IDF soldiers.
