CIA-Connected Amazon Turns Over A Record Amount Of Data To US Law Enforcement

Amazon’s fifth transparency report has revealed that the company provided more customer data to U.S. law enforcement in the first half of last year than in its history with a shocking 1,936 different requests between January and June 2017, ZDNet reported.

Of those 1,936 requests, Amazon complied and replied to 1,200 subpoena requests, 189 search warrants and 76 other court orders – for a whopping 1,465 requests they responded to. That’s 42 percent of all subpoenas, 44 percent of search warrants and 52 percent of other court orders.

The Twitter President

As my readers at home and around the world know, I supported giving Trump a chance as Trump, and only Trump, addressed the two most important issues of our time for both all of humanity and for Americans: (1) avoiding nuclear Armageddon by normalizing relations with Russia, and (2) restoring the American middle class, on whose success political stability in the United States depends, by stopping the offshoring of US jobs and bringing those offshored home.

If Trump is real, he will arrest Mueller, Comey, Brennan, Hillary, Obama, the DNC, and break the presstitute media monopolies into a thousand pieces. He might also arrest senators and representatives who are engaged in a campaign to overthrow the elected government of the United States.

If President Trump fails to defeat the agenda of those driving the world to nuclear war with Russia (and China), he will be the US President who failed humanity and snuffed out life on earth.

U.S. Humiliates South Korea, Threatens North Korea. Trump Undermines North-South Dialogue

Fearing that peace might break out with the two Koreas talking to each other, Washington instructed South Korean President Moon Jae-in to keep the message about anything but peace. It is not just Trump. A former top official for the Obama administration warned Moon that South Korea was not going to get anywhere with the North Koreans unless they have the “US behind them”. Humiliating, that is like saying that Moon’s “button” is not as big as Kim’s. The metaphor is exactly how the Washington elite see South Korea: as Washington’s obedient proxy state. The official went on to say,

“If South Koreans are viewed as running off the leash, it will exacerbate tension within the alliance”.

Running off the leash! Now more humiliation, is South Korea a US poodle? Instead President Moon Jae-in is showing that he has teeth, and that South Koreans want their country back from US humiliating domination.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What concerns me now, in the US government's rush to get a war- any war - going, is the possibility of a false flag at the Winter Olympics, to be blamed on North Korea.

Deputy Sheriff, Three Cohorts Arrested in Drug Trafficking Scheme After Agreeing to Provide Security for Narcotics Shipments

A Los Angeles County deputy sheriff who allegedly agreed on two occasions to oversee the delivery of narcotics and other contraband in exchange for cash payments was arrested this morning, along with three other men, on federal narcotics charges.

Special agents with the Federal Bureau Investigation this morning arrested Deputy Sheriff Kenneth Collins and the other three after they arrived in Pasadena, allegedly to provide “security” for the transport of nearly 45 pounds of cocaine and more than 13 pounds of methamphetamine. During the FBI’s undercover investigation, Collins allegedly agreed that he and his team would accompany the narcotics and take calculated steps to prevent legitimate law enforcement from intercepting the drugs – in exchange for cash payments as high as $250,000.

Lockheed keeps F-16 production line going with Bahrain deal

Bahrain is set to become the first country in the region to operate Lockheed’s F-16 Block 70 aircraft, in a move that will boost the Falcon’s production line.

Last November, Vice President Mike Pence announced the signature of a deal for the sale of 16 F-16s worth over $2.3 billion to the Gulf country, considering it a “big boost for American jobs and security.”

“We are pleased the Kingdom of Bahrain and the U.S. government have agreed to move forward with the sale of F-16 Block 70 aircraft for the Royal Bahraini Air Force,” said Rick Groesch, regional vice president of international business development at Lockheed Martin Aeronautics.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So what can this fighter jet do?!? Here, from Lockheed's own PR department, come the specs:

Capabilities: the F-16 Block 70

And Vice-President Pence, can you please elaborate on your statement that this deal be a"“big boost for American jobs and security”
.

No one, sir, should know the facts on the ground regarding Bahrain better than you do; and yet, knowing what you know, you still let this deal go through?!?

Yes, we both understand that it is home to the US Navy's 5th Fleet.

And yes, we both understand the ruling Shiekdom, the Al Khalifa monarchy, has a human rights record just to the right of that of Atilla the Hun.

The Sunni monarchy has been making mincemeat of its primarily Shiia subjects, who have been peacefully advocating for a constitutional monarchy for some time now. And how has the government, and monarchy of Barhain dealt with these peaceful protests?!?

Peaceful demonsrators have consistently received beatings, to torture untrue confessions out of them, then made to appear at kangaroo courts, where they can expect a guilty sentence,and extensive jail time. This has also consistently happened to medical first responders who treated the wounds of those peaceful protestors.

Yes, we both know that this sale was great for Lockheed; but Vice-President Pence, understanding the total and complete anti human rights record of this country, at what moral price to these United States of America was this deal struck?!?

And frankly, what country does the US government expect the Bahraini military to attack with these fighter jets?!? What is the quid pro quo here?!?

The Bahraini government keeps claiming that Iranian Shiia rebels are constantly trying to turn the people of Bahrain against its government and monarchy; was the quid pro quo a tacit understanding that when Saudi Arabia; the US; and Israel decide to attack Iran, that Barhain would become part of the "coalition" to bring regime change to Tehran?!?

I would share something critical to understand for the government and royalty of Bahrain; should Iran be attacked, Russia will most likely enter this war on Iran's side; both politicians and Russian military have promised this to the Iranian government for decades.

I would therefore strongly suggest that you think twice about entering a war which could mean war against both Russia and Iran.

Donald Trump’s First Year and the Illusion of Choice

The striking thing about Trump’s first twelve months compared to the Obama administration is not how different his foreign policies have been, but how similar.

January 20 marks one year since Donald Trump officially became the 45th President of the United States. His supporters, boosted by comments the Donald made on the campaign trail, hoped his Presidency would mark a shift away from a neocon/liberal interventionist foreign policy. In fact we’ve just had more of the same.

The old French saying ‘plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose (the more things change the more they stay the same)’ springs readily to mind. As indeed does the late George Carlin’s comment about Americans only having the “illusion of choice” on the things that really matter.

1.3 million children displaced by Iraq's war with Islamic State - UNICEF

While the Baghdad government last month declared victory over Islamic State after wresting back almost all the territory IS seized in 2014, persistent bombing and shooting attacks make it difficult to rebuild the lives of displaced people, according to UNICEF, the U.N. children’s agency.

“We believe that as a result of the conflict, a lack of investment over the years, and the poverty ... that there are 4 million children now in need across Iraq,” said Peter Hawkins, UNICEF chief representative in the country.

He told a Geneva news briefing by telephone from Baghdad that 1.3 million of the 2.6 million displaced by the often devastating fighting with Islamic State were children.

“While the fighting has come to an end in several areas, spikes of violence continue in others - just this week, three bombings went off in Baghdad,” UNICEF Regional Director Geert Cappelaere said in a statement.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When you destroy a country's children, you destroy that country's future.

US Military’s ‘Prime Focus’ Will Be Competing With Russia, China

The newest US National Defense Strategy, the first since at 2014, appears to set out a major shift in the focus of America’s massive military and its endless wars, with officials now saying that the global wars on terror, while continuing, will no longer be the “prime focus of US national security.”

Instead, Defense Secretary James Mattis says the new strategy will put the primary focus of the US military engaging in power competition with other “great powers,” with Russia and China apparently the targets.

The “great power” conceit is a very 19th century concept, based around the idea that certain countries have uniquely great influence and authority worldwide. Historically, the great powers tend to view everyone else as pawns to be used in broader global strategies which establish the great powers’ pecking order with respect to one another.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What the hell ever happened, in terms of the US government's "weltanschauung", to moral, peaceful engagement and negotiation, as a non-martial alternative to war, which is rapidly evolving to be "the only answer" to the US government's geopolitical's concerns?!?

Slapping an Israeli Soldier More Newsworthy Than Shooting a Palestinian Child in the Face

Israeli soldiers shot 14-year-old Palestinian Mohammad Tamimi point-blank in the face with a rubber-jacketed bullet on December 14, 2017, in Nabi Saleh, a small village in the occupied West Bank. The boy had to undergo six hours of surgery and was placed in a medically induced coma.

An hour later, Mohammad’s cousin, Ahed Tamimi, slapped and kicked at an armed Israeli soldier. Early the next week, after video of Ahed’s actions went viral, Israeli soldiers raided the Tamimi home at 3 a.m., arresting Ahed and confiscating the family’s phones, computers and laptops.

Ahed has been denied bail and could face years in prison. (Nour Tamimi, a 16-year-old cousin of Ahed’s who is also in the video, was also arrested and has been released on bail. Ahed’s mother Nariman was arrested later that day when she inquired about her daughter, and she remains in custody.)

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is a thoroughly media-manipulated war against Palestinians, in which the IDF is depicted as NEVER committing acts of wanton cruelty against Palestinian kids.

The suffering and murders of Palestinian kids (which is a daily occurance in East Jerusalem, and the West Bank) is consistently bleached away from any coverage, and it is always the Palestinians who are the villians.

So the lies keep getting regurgitated, to the point where there is absolutely zero IDF incitement, either verbal, or physical, to have caused these incedents in the first place.

Turkey Escalates Shelling, Says ‘No Turning Back’ From Syria Invasion

Turkish troops continue to mass at the Syrian border Friday, with artillery fire from their positions pounding Kurdish YPG forces in the Syrian Afrin District, and Turkish DM Nurettin Canikli saying this is the “de facto start” of a full-scale Syrian invasion of Kurdish territory.

Turkish officials have threatened this invasion off and on for months, and earlier this week said it was imminent. Canikli says now there is “no turning back” and that the invasion is in progress.

Turkey has long presented the Kurdish YPG as “terrorists,” and insisted they will not allow them to retain territory west of the Euphrates River. To this end, President Erdogan says Turkey will attack Afrin first, then Manbij.

Other Turkish officials, however, say they consider it unacceptable for the YPG to retain any territory near the Turkish border at all, which means nearly all of their territory is at risk from this ongoing operation

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It appears that nothing less than wholesale slaughter of all Kurds. a mass genocide of these people, is all that will be acceptable to the Turkish government.

And have you noticed?!? Even though the shelling against Syria has started from inside the Turkish border, not a world from any of the thoroughly government-compromised presstitutes on corporate US TV have even made mention of the fact that Turkey has, de facto, declared a war against Syria?!?

The following from the BBC is a confirmation that Turkish shelling has intensified, before Turkish tanks and military hardware invade Afrin:

Turkey steps up Syria shelling as invasion of Afrin looms

NGO: US-Led Coalition Civilian Killings Tripled in Iraq and Syria in 2017

UK-based NGO Airwars has offered a reckoning of the 2017 air operations of the US-led coalition against ISIS, involving attacks in both Iraq and Syria.The number of civilians killed increased dramatically, with estimates suggesting that they roughly tripled from 2016.

In 2016, they documented an estimated death toll of between 1,243 and 1,904 non-combatants, but in 2017, the estimate was a minimum of 3,923, and potentially as many as 6,102 non-combatants killed.

That’s a huge increase, and a troubling one, in no small part because the US doesn’t admit it’s even happening, with Pentagon assessments putting deaths at no more than a few hundred annually, and around 800 over the entire past four years.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And it gets worse, folks: here's a story from alternet.com, to which we should all be paying attention:

Trump Is Turning the State Department into a Global Weapons Dealer

The story goes on to state:

"The Trump administration will soon announce its next move in the ongoing assault on diplomacy and human rights currently taking place in the United States. Through a plan dubbed “Buy American,” the administration is calling for U.S. attachés and diplomats to play a larger role in the sale of U.S. weapons, effectively solidifying their role as lobbyists for the arms industry rather than agents of diplomacy.

This means the State Department, the agency that is meant to foster diplomatic relations and maintain peaceful engagement with other countries, will now openly operate as a weapons dealer. The administration is essentially forcing the State Department to undermine itself, as seeking out and expanding opportunities for increased weapons sales are certainly not conducive to fostering peaceful global relations."

If EVER this country needed a "Department of Peace", to figure out non-martial, non-military alternatives to this country's never-ending geopolitical conflicts, it is right the hell now!

RUSSIAN MILITARY PULLS OUT OF SYRIAN KURDISH TOWN AS TURKEY INITIATES "MASSIVE CROSS-BORDER ATTACK"

Turkey's defense minister has confirmed the Turkish military has begun cross-border shelling of the Syrian Kurdish enclave of Afrin in what he further describes as the "de facto start" of the operation in order to destroy - in President Recep Tayyip Erdo?an's words - Kurdish "terror nests" - and which has been dubbed previously by Turkey as a 'massive cross-border attack.'

Defense Minister Nuettin Canikli said Friday that Ankara "has no option" regarding the planned invasion of Northern Syria to dislodge the YPG (Kurdish "People's Protection Units") and other factions, which it considers an extension of the "terrorist" PKK. Kurdish YPG militias and their media arms began reporting sporadic shelling and clashes earlier this week.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, let me get this straight; Turkey, a NATO member, may well find itself attacking positions where the US, another NATO member, may have troops embedded with the Kurds in Afrin?!?

This is dicey. But what is even more dicey is the reality that if Russia attacks the US in Afrin, we may well be on our way to World War III. The same may well happen if Russian forces strike Turkish forces here.

A COMPREHENSIVE GUIDE TO CORPORATE ONLINE SURVEILLANCE IN EVERYDAY LIFE

Cracked Labs' massive report on online surveillance by corporations dissects all the different ways in which our digital lives are tracked, from the ad-beacons that follow us around the web to the apps that track our physical locations as we move around the world.

Importantly, the report shows how tracking companies join up the dots we leave behind, creating stable identifiers that can connect the data-trails from purchases, apps, devices, and clicks, creating a fantastically detailed picture of our lives built up our of these fragmentary details.

This is important because each little fragmentary disclosure can feel harmless at the time, but once they're merged into a unitary whole, the picture they from is disturbingly detailed.

Mother of patient left in cold says her daughter was denied care

The mother of a mentally ill woman who was left outside a Baltimore hospital on a frigid night wearing only a flimsy gown and socks asserted she was denied care by medical professionals and left to face life-threatening conditions on the street. Cheryl Chandler said she was only made aware of her missing 22-year-old daughter's predicament on the night of Jan. 9 when she happened upon a viral video shot by a passer-by who was enraged at the way she was treated.

"I didn't even know that it was my daughter initially," Chandler told CBS News. "As he got close enough, I saw it was her and I got hysterical because in that moment, it was sheer fear that my daughter was going to die."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A society is only as good as its compassion for the most fragile among it; unfortunately, here in the US, we frequently see a massive propensity toward cruelty, and feigning ignorance, when one of its most vulnerable, like Rebecca, gets caught in the cracks of the system.

Dumping her at a bus stop, in her hospital garb, at sub-freezing temperatures?!?

This... is what "American compassion" looks like for far too many of its fragile members.

GOP CANDIDATE FOR PENNSYLVANIA SPECIAL ELECTION IS A FORMER ABU GHRAIB INTERROGATION CONSULTANT

RICK SACCONE, THE GOP nominee in Pennsylvania’s 18th congressional district, is a former intelligence support consultant for the U.S. Army at the infamous Abu Ghraib prison. He has written extensively in support of interrogation tactics widely condemned by human rights experts as torture.

Over the years, drawing upon his experience in Iraq, Saccone has promoted waterboarding, stress positions, sleep deprivation, as well as threatening prisoners with execution, dogs, and electrocution, as necessary tactics for obtaining information from detainees.

On Thursday, President Donald Trump appeared in North Fayette Township in Pennsylvania to promote Saccone’s candidacy. Despite the district going to Trump by some 20 points in November, the GOP is at risk of losing it to Democrat Conor Lamb.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am having a Jean-Luc Picard double face-palm, at warp speed, upon reading this.

Holy Heironymous Bosch, Pennsyvania GOP, could you do NO BETTER than selecting a candidate who obviously enjoyed torturing prisoners of war at Abu Ghraib so much, that he still briskly advocates these practices today?!?

Who the hell were the deaf, dumb, and blind people on your selection committee who thought this guy was THE perfectly best choice for the job, and that no other candidate could possibly be as great for the job as this guy?!?

It has been proven, by mountains of scientific evidence, that torture rarely produces actionable intelligence; it simply gets the tortured individual to say what he thinks his torturers want him to say to get the torture to stop.

There was a German interrogator, during World War Two, whose name was Hans Scharff, and he had a brilliant record of extracting information from American and British prisoners without ever once using violence.

Hans Scharff

In fact, after the war, the US military so respected his tactics that he was invited to teach seminars in interrogation to American, using his techniques.

Sure as hell looks like US foreign policy has moved from that kind of treatment of Prisoners of War to something just to the right of Atilla the Hun: and Saccone was complicit in this at Abu Ghraib, completely violating the Geneva Accords, to which the US government is a signatory!!

To the Republicans in Pennsylvania who got this guy nominated, congratulations; because of what this man has done, and what people now know about him, you have probably just thrown this election to his Democratic opponent.

That meant it wasn’t drinking water spilled by one of the crew members; it was saltwater leaking into the sub — at 1,476 feet (450 meters) below the surface. “That made my heart start beating quite fast,” says Doherty, a producer for BBC America.
