35,000 sealed federal criminal indictments in last 6 months + normal rate of ~1,000 per year = endgame imminent for either .01% rogue state criminals or .01% patriot leaders

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

From November 2017 until the end of April 2018, 35,058 sealed federal indictments are entered and waiting to be unsealed. Sealed Federal criminal indictments average ~1,000 per year, according to research by US federal courts. 35,000 in six months seems to mean:

a) .01% arrests for ongoing illegal rogue state empire annually killing millions, harming billions, and looting trillions, OR
b) .01% patriot arrests for the rogue staters to remove voices in alternative media too close to revealing the facts (.01% = ~30,000 Americans), OR
c) just another disinformation rogue state PSYOP to waste Patriots time and energy, OR
d) who knows?

I’ve updated totals of 5,000, then 10,000, then 15,000 sealed federal indictments. My commentary about “Q Anon” hints informs the above conclusions, but Patriots have no reason for rest until .01% arrests remove our .01% "leader" psychopaths from killing in the literal millions every year.

Israeli troops open fire on Gaza protesters as Middle East marks anti-Israel Al-Quds Day

More than 600 Palestinians were reportedly wounded as protesters came under Israeli gunfire as they headed to the Gaza fence. According to Gaza's Health Ministry, at least four Palestinians were killed, including a 15-year-old.
"veral protesting Palestinians also donned uniforms similar to those worn by Jewish prisoners in World War Two. Ahmed Abu Artima told the AP news agency: "We want to remind the world that the Israeli occupation is committing the same massacres that the Nazis committed."
Denying, trivializing or mocking the Holocaust is not uncommon in the Muslim world."
Note: No pictures on the prisoners uniforms and here we go again bringing in the holocau$t. Excellent video link here.

Trustees report warns Medicare finances worsening

Medicare will run out of money sooner than expected, and Social Security's financial problems can't be ignored either, the government said Tuesday in a sobering checkup on programs vital to the middle class. The report from program trustees says Medicare will become insolvent in 2026 - three years earlier than previously forecast. Its giant trust fund for inpatient care won't be able to fully cover projected medical bills starting at that point. The report says Social Security will become insolvent in 2034 - no change from the projection last year. The warning serves as a reminder of major issues still languishing while Washington plunges deeper into partisan strife.
Note: Plenty of money for wars!

5 Facts Proving “They Are Coming For Your Guns” Is Not A Conspiracy Theory

Many of the politicians, mainstream media pundits, and students who call for stricter gun control laws insist that they are only seeking “common sense” gun legislation. But in reality, the real issues that lead to mass shootings are being ignored and the rhetoric that is being shared in the name of “safety,” is instead chipping away at the Second Amendment, and in some cases, pushing to repeal it altogether.

30 phone calls to 9-1-1 that Sheriff Joseph Lombardo doesn’t want you to hear from the night of 1 October

Intellihub editor-in-chief Shepard Ambellas tediously went through 518 different 911 calls from the night of the 1 October massacre in which the online sleuth located a cornucopia of information which further paints a picture of how Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department Sheriff Joseph Lombardo lied to the general public about events which occurred on the night of the shooting.

However, it’s also important to point out that the sheriff did not lie by choice but rather lied due to the fact that the Department of Homeland Security deemed the ‘terror attack’ a matter of national security just one day after the shooting which is why FBI Special Agent Aaron Rouse was subsequently assigned to Lombardo as his handler.

The following calls to 911 took place between the hours of 10:00 pm and 11:59 pm on October 1, 2017, and absolutely eviscerate LVMPD’s narrative of a single lone wolf shooter.

Four more Palestinians, including a teenager, killed in Gaza protests. 'You cowards!' protester shouts at Israeli forces

Despite the international outcry provoked by the high number of Gazan deaths, Israel says it will protect its territory and use all means allowed by “international rules of engagement.”

Poll shows deep divisions between Israelis and American Jews

A new opinion poll shows deep divisions between Israelis and American Jews, particularly in relation to President Donald Trump. The survey of the American Jewish Committee released Sunday showed 77 percent of Israelis approved of the president's handling of U.S.-Israel relations, while only 34 percent of American Jews did.
Note: Don't get too hopeful U.S. Jews still give millions and millions to Israel every year.

As US culture warriors ban Miss America swimsuit contest, expect burqas on the beach next

Today, many Americans find themselves on a slippery slope as they attempt to outdo each other in a moral crusade that seeks to prevent anyone from thinking the wrong thoughts. If they are not careful, Americans will end up inheriting a cross between the 1979 Iranian Revolution, complete with its fiercely moralistic stance on many secular issues, with the world of Orwell’s 1984, where the thought police knew what everybody was thinking and doing any minute of the day. In this weird Weinsteinian world we now inhabit, we know all too well what happens to the suspects – even without the decency of a fair trial: innocent until proven guilty.

Is the next stop on this out of control, all-American Cultural Revolution full body burqas replacing the two-piece bikini on Malibu Beach? To be honest, nothing would really surprise me at this point.

How do the awake (relatively) best co-create virtue among ~95% stupefied humanity parasitized by a .01% psychopathic class for ongoing dominating rogue state empire, with the stakes of annual millions murdered, billions harmed, trillions looted???

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

First: because I’m asking, I don’t have an objectively correct answer to factually assert. This question implies answers unique to individual’s best combinations of art and science to connect/communicate. This said, it’s a vital question, and I’d like to share three possible responses I’ve experimented with:

1. Direct: Alert the ~95% unaware they live in rogue state empire with emergencies humanity must address.
2. Indirect: Don’t be direct; just be of service to whatever the people find of interest, and certainly include data of the rogue state empire if that is of organic interest.
3. Broadcast and network: Tell or don’t tell whoever; that is secondary to somehow finding our global partners at work to reveal and end the empire, network in synergy, and be prepared for openings to take action.

Let’s look at each approach in further detail along with my experimental observations:

1. Be direct

The Gently Rotting Debt-Ridden EU

The EU as a political construction is in a state of terminal decay. We know this for one reason and one reason alone: its core principle is the state is superior to its people. A system of government can only work over the longer term if it recognises that it is the servant of the people, not its master. It matters not what electoral system is in place, so long as this principal is adhered to.

The EU executive in Brussels does not accept electoral primacy. It shares with Marxist communism a belief in statist primacy instead. The only difference between the two creeds is Marx planned to rule the world, while Brussels is on the way to ruling Europe.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The question here arises, that it is not if the EU and Euro are going to fail; it is a question of when, and under what circumstances, this devolution will take place.

America Goes Full Imbecile

Credit has a wicked way...
...of magnifying a person’s defects. Even the most cautious man, with unlimited credit, can make mistakes that in retrospect seem absurd. But an average man, with unlimited credit, is preeminently disposed to going full imbecile.Several weeks ago we came across a woeful tale of Mike Meru. Somehow, this special fellow, while of apparent sound mine and worthy intent, racked up over $1 million dollars in student loan debt – all to become an orthodontist.

Surely, with several good text books, and a disciplined self-study program, Meru could have learned everything there was to possibly know about adjusting malpositioned teeth for roughly $200 bucks. Instead, with the full backing of Uncle Sam’s loan program, he went full imbecile.

Weekly Update: New FBI Docs On Clinton Email Scandal

This is just too rich. We now have emails from notorious anti-Trump, pro-Hillary Clinton FBI officials who seem to confirm that James Comey and Loretta Lynch decided to let Hillary Clinton ride on her email abuses before she was even interviewed by the FBI.

The disclosure is found in 16 pages of FBI documents related to the infamous June 2016 tarmac meeting between former Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former President Bill Clinton.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I seriously doubt that revelations from the report, coming out next week, regarding the FBI's handling of Hillary Clinton's email, will seriously out her as having done something bad, and wrong, with the way she handled her data; some poor schlump will probably be thrown under the proverbial bus, and we were prepared for that last week, by the sudden public demonization of Comey, as having been"defiant".

Running Amok? Donald Trump Facilitates Civilian Drone Deaths, Continues Attacks in Seven Countries ‘and Elsewhere’

The NGO CAGE, which campaigns against discriminatory state policies and advocates observance of due process and the rule of law, reminds readers that in October 2017, US President Donald Trump replaced the Obama rules pertaining to drone strikes with his own ‘rules’ called the “Principles, Standards, and Procedures,” or PSPs.

It reports that according to the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) these laws “make it easier to kill more people in more places outside recognized battlefields, posing grave risks of death and injury to civilians”:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The continuing use of these extrajudicial assassinations guarantees that the US will be at war perpetually, meaning that the weapons companies which manufacture these drones, and other weapons of war, and their stockholders, will profit greatly.

In what President Trump has done, particularly in his arms sales to countries like Saudi Arabia and for Israel, which generally receives American money to buy American weaponry Israel gets American Money to Buy American Weapons,,he has very clearly telegraphed his belief that war is good for American business.

But at what cost to the soul of this country?!? What about the innocents, the babies, the toddlers, the women, and the medically fragile elderly, who get blown to bits in these drone attacks?!? As a Christian pacifist activist, these are questions I frequently ask myself.

Vet With 2 Double-Lung Transplants Pushes Congress to Act on Burn Pits

"You smelled it every day, and then you'd get these dust storms that just pushed it all around," former Army Staff Sgt. William Thompson said of the fumes and clouds of muck that came off the big burn pit at Camp Victory and other U.S. bases in Iraq.

Thompson has had two double-lung transplants since returning from two tours in Iraq. He attributes them to his exposure to the toxic brew of medical waste, human waste, plastics, tires, electronics, paint cans, routine garbage and the occasional entire Humvee that would be laced with jet fuel and set ablaze at hundreds of sites in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The group has pressed for burn pit exposure to be recognized as a "presumptive" illness, much like Agent Orange, to give veterans access to care and benefits, but the Department of Veterans Affairs and the Department of Defense maintain that there is no proof of correlation or causality.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Please show this article to any thinking about enlisting in the US military, other than those on a fast track toward leadership; enlistees need to understand how completely expendable they are to the DOD, once they have signed up, and if they get ill in performance of their service.

The Israeli Army Edited This Clip Of A Medic They Killed To Make Her Look Like She Was Acting As A Human Shield: "They edited video of Razan al-Najjar to justify her slaughter."

The video the Israel Defense Forces tweeted shows 21-year-old Razan al-Najjar claiming to be a "human shield" for an extreme Palestinian opposition movement against Israel.

Najjar was killed when she was shot in the chest in Gaza on June 1, as she tended the wounded on the front lines. After her death, thousands called her the #AngelOfMercy.

In the short clip, Najjar appears to say she is a "human shield" for Hamas, a group opposed to Israel and designated as a terror organization by the US.

In the full clip, however, taken from an interview Najjar gave to Al Mayadeen TV, she stated, "I'm here as a rescuing human shield to protect and save the wounded at the front lines."

She goes on to state that no one forced her to become a medic. Her cousin Dalia al-Najjar told BuzzFeed News, "Being a nurse was her dream."

Israel’s Attack on the USS Liberty: A Half Century Later, Still No Justice

Two F-4s left the carrier to come to the Liberty’s aid. Apparently, the jets were armed only with nuclear weapons. When word reached the Pentagon, Defense Secretary Robert McNamara became irate and ordered the jets to return. “Tell the Sixth Fleet to get those aircraft back immediately,” he barked. McNamara’s injunction was reiterated in saltier terms by Admiral David L. McDonald, the chief of Naval Operations: “You get those fucking airplanes back on deck, and you get them back down.” The planes turned around. And the attack on the Liberty continued.

After the Israeli fighter jets had emptied their arsenal of rockets, three Israeli attack boats approached the Liberty. Two torpedoes were launched at the crippled ship, one tore a 40-foot wide hole in the hull, flooding the lower compartments, and killing more than a dozen American sailors.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

AND THIS, FOLKS, IS HOW ISRAEL TREATED ITS "FRIEND", THE UNITED STATES, WHEN IT WAS ENGAGING IN A FALSE FLAG TO GET THE US TO FIGHT EGYPT, ON WHICH IT WANTED TO BLAME THE ATTACK.

Gaza protests: All the latest updates

For more than two months, Palestinians in the Gaza Strip have been protesting along the fence with Israel, demanding their right to return to the homes and land their families were expelled from 70 years ago.

The Great March of Return rallies culminated on May 15 to mark what Palestinians refer to as the Nakba, or Catastrophe - a reference to the forced removal of 750,000 Palestinians from their homes and villages to clear the way for Israel's establishment in 1948.

The mass Friday demonstrations have since continued.

Since the protests began on March 30, Israeli forces have killed 124 Palestinians in the besieged coastal enclave and wounded more than 13,000 people.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Due to his characteristic hubris, Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu just doesnt' see how horriific the optics on this mass murder are, for the rest of the world.

But what concerns me, even more greatly, is an article from timesofisrael.com, indicating that all Israeli military have practiced, for an entire week, to wage a complete, and utter war, against Gaza:

KEY EVIDENCE GOES MISSING: Server Belonging to Wasserman Schultz IT Worker Imran Awan Is Physically Stolen from Congress

Following a second briefing in late September 2016, in which the House inspector warned the House leadership of “continuing unauthorized access,” the investigation was moved to the Capitol Police in October.

It was not until months later, on Feb. 2, 2017, that the House sergeant at arms banned the IT workers from the House network.

The Democratic Caucus server, which had been identified by the inspector general as ground zero of the suspicious activity, had disappeared at that time.

Three senior government officials with knowledge of the situation told the Daily Caller News Foundation last year that it had been physically stolen.

10,000 PALESTINIANS PARTICIPATE IN GAZA BORDER FENCE PROTEST, 6 WOUNDED

Ten-thousand Palestinians gathered and burned tires in five locations along the Israel-Gaza border fence Friday afternoon, according to the IDF spokesperson's unit.

IDF soldiers used crowd dispersal measures in accordance with IDF rules of engagement and "are keeping high-alert."

In addition to soldiers posted at the border, hundreds of troops were deployed there ahead of the event from the Nahal, Golani and Givati Brigades as well as special forces. Photographers and drone operators will document the riots for legal and media purposes.

After Atlanticism, What’s Next?

The accelerating feud between the EU and Washington over the Iran nuclear deal has been correctly identified as a pivotal crisis of Atlanticism.

In order to answer this question and forecast the future of Washington-Brussels relations and the European Union as a whole, it is necessary to first clarify what Atlanticism is and what it has entailed for Europe up to this critical point.

US, Russian military leaders meet in Finland for talks

The top U.S. military chief met Friday in Finland with his Russian counterpart to exchange views on U.S.-Russia military relations, Syria and the international security situation.

The meeting between Gen. Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and Russia’s chief of the military’s General Staff, Gen. Valery Gerasimov, took place in Konigstedt Manor, a Finnish state-owned venue north of the capital, Helsinki.

The Russian Defense Ministry said Gerasimov and Dunford discussed European security issues and the situation in Syria.

A brief statement on the Joint Chiefs of Staff website stressed, without elaborating, that U.S. and Russian militaries “have undertaken efforts to improve operational safety and strategic stability.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is only a matter of when, not if, there will be military conflict between US forces and those of Russia; it is primarily a case of where, which could potentially be in Ukraine, Syria, or Iran.

THE GOVERNMENT’S NEW CONTRACTOR TO RUN LOS ALAMOS INCLUDES THE SAME MANAGER IT EFFECTIVELY FIRED FOR SAFETY PROBLEMS

This article was produced in partnership with the Santa Fe New Mexican, which is a member of the ProPublica Local Reporting Network.

Despite a lengthy record of safety violations, the University of California will continue its 75-year legacy of running Los Alamos National Laboratory, the U.S. Department of Energy and National Nuclear Security Administration announced Friday.

A management partnership that includes the university, research and development nonprofit Battelle Memorial Institute and Texas A&M University, the alma mater of Energy Secretary Rick Perry, will be paid $2.5 billion annually to run Los Alamos, the birthplace of the atomic bomb. They’re calling their partnership Triad National Security LLC.

The contract could be worth upward of $25 billion over the next decade, with hundreds of millions of dollars more in performance-based bonus fees. Six other corporations will join the team in support roles.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Looks like being cavalier with issues of health and safety, just goes with the territory at Los Alamos.

SHE WAS KIDNAPPED BY GUERRILLAS AND FORCED TO WORK. THAT QUALIFIES AS MATERIAL SUPPORT FOR TERRORISM, ACCORDING TO IMMIGRATION RULING

The case at issue before the immigration court involved an unnamed Salvadoran woman who was kidnapped by guerrillas in 1990 and forced to undergo weapons training and cook and clean. The woman also watched her husband, a sergeant in the Salvadoran army, dig his own grave before being executed by the guerrillas.

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security had argued for the woman’s removal from the United States in 2004, based on the duties she was forced to perform while held captive 14 years earlier. Under the material support provisions of the USA Patriot Act, the sweeping security legislation passed in the months after the 9/11 attacks, immigrants may be denied entry or removed from the country if they provided support to terrorists, which are broadly defined in immigration law as nonstate actors involved in armed force.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am sorry; this ruling may have been technically correct, but is absolutely morally brain-dead, given the circumstances that this woman was used as slave labor by terrorists, who assassinated her husband, and made her watch.

OVER 1,200 MINNESOTA PARENTS ARE SUING TO SHUT DOWN CHILD PROTECTIVE SERVICES

A group of parents in Minnesota called Stop CPS From Legally Kidnapping Children has filed a request in federal court to “shut down the state’s child protection services, stop serial abuse of families and overturn the unconstitutional laws by which the agency operates,” according to a press release published Tuesday.

The group, led by Dwight Mitchell, a father who says his son was illegally taken from him for 22 months, first filed a civil rights complaint in April, and this week they vocally publicized their call to shut down the child services agency, which they claim engages in systemic lying, withholding information, and fabricating evidence. They are asking the federal court to suspend the state’s agency from enforcing child protection laws, and according to a petition signed by almost 5,000 people, are also demanding changes to the laws themselves.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Minnesota is not the only state where CPS officers are absolutely both completely out of control, to make sure their quotas get met, and their budgets get enhanced, but there is also a huge amount of abuse and neglect that they do not find, leaving vulnerable children with ghastly consequences, including massive injuries and deaths.

PAUL MANAFORT HAS INADVERTENTLY HELPED AMERICA BY SHOWING THE ABSURDITIES OF ITS BAIL SYSTEM

American citizens don’t have a lot they can thank Paul Manafort for. Manafort, President Donald Trump’s former campaign manager, is suspected of colluding with Russia and enriching himself through years of influence-peddling that involved a multitude of financial crimes. But his indictment last year by special counsel Robert Mueller has done us a huge favor by drawing attention to one of the great travesties in the way America treats people accused of crimes: its bail system.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is simply about the reality that the elite seldom eat their own, and in this country, alleged "justice" has, for those elites, like Manafort and Weinstein, devolved in to "Just Us!!" mentality.

LOCKHEED MARTIN AWARDED $929 MILLION CONTRACT FOR HYPERSONIC WEAPON TO COUNTER RUSSIA, CHINA

Lockheed Martin, the defense company behind F-35A Lightning II, a fifth-generation combat aircraft, won a $928 million contract April 18 to develop a hypersonic missile for the U.S. Air Force that will travel more than five times faster than the speed of sound to overcome Russian and Chinese missile defense systems.

According to Lockheed Martin, under the indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract, the company will design and manufacture the Hypersonic Conventional Strike Weapon (HCSW), a new air-launched weapon system. The missile will be capable of speeds higher than Mach five and could render Russian and Chinese ballistic missile defense interceptors useless.

Lockheed Martin will be strategically working with the U.S. Air Force to “finalize system requirements under the contract’s initial task order,” the press release stated.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is a staggeringly huge amount of money, and yes, I know that impending wars mean projects of this kind will create employment for many.

But the question no one at the Pentagon, or State Department wants to answer, is how the US wound up so far behind Russia and China in the development of this kind of technology?!?

MATTIS: WITHDRAWING US TROOPS FROM SYRIA WOULD BE A "STRATEGIC BLUNDER"

Speaking at NATO headquarters on Friday, Secretary of Defense James Mattis reiterated his opposition to the idea of withdrawing US troops from Syria. He said any withdrawal before progress was made would be a “strategic blunder.”

Mattis’ position reflects those of a lot of top US cabinet officials, who have resisted President Trump’s talk of a quick withdrawal. He argues that the UN peace plan necessitates an ongoing US military presence.

On the one hand, Mattis suggests leaving too soon could give “the terrorists the opportunity to recover.” On the other hand, he also says that leaving would be exploited by the Assad government and its supporters.

This again sets out the US position that the UN plan necessitates regime change in Syria, something other supporters say is not the case. It also suggests a more or less permanent US presence in Syria, since there is virtually no chance the US will impose a favorable outcome.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The absolute, killer, irony here, is that according to Russian Major-General Igor Konashenkov, in a conversation with reporters today, made the following statement:

All remaining resistence zones in Syria, are US-controlled areas.

Let's wrap our heads for a moment around these two statements, and compare what Sec Def Mattis has stated with what Major-General Konashenkov has stated.

It is obvious that they cannot both be correct. I think, knowing what I know about US geopolitics, that Mattis is trying to find some logic-defying way of defending the military US presence in Syria, which he absolutely understands, in his heart of hearts, is not based on any potential good for the Syrian people; remember, the US has been the sponsor of the rebels in Syria, and has trained and funded and equipped jihadist rebels here.

Pentagon wasted $500 million on training rebels in Syria.

The US and Israeli foreign policy goals have been, and will continue to be, both the balkanization of Syria, to make it easier to control, and effect regime change in Damascus, however that can be made to happen.

US Air Force grounds all B-1B bombers after ejection seat trouble

The US Air Force has grounded its entire B-1B 'Lancer' bomber fleet, due to safety concerns related to the aircraft’s ejection seats not functioning properly.

The decision was taken as a direct result of an incident last month, where a Lancer had to make an emergency landing at Midland Airport in Texas.

The Air Force confirmed in a statement that a safety investigation uncovered an issue with ejection seat components that necessitated a stand-down of the full fleet until further investigations are complete. The aircraft will return to flight as issues are resolved.

ALL REMAINING ISIS RESISTANCE ZONES IN SYRIA ARE IN US-CONTROLLED AREAS – RUSSIAN MOD

Islamic State still keeps its presence in Syria, but only in US-controlled areas while those liberated by Syrian government forces areas are slowly recovering after terrorists’ defeat, according to the Russian Defense Ministry.
“All the remaining pockets of resistance of ISIS terrorists in Syria are only in areas controlled by the United States,” Major-General Igor Konashenkov, a defense ministry spokesman, said on Saturday.

Earlier, US Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said in a bold statement that pulling out of the Arab Republic “must avoid leaving a vacuum in Syria that can be exploited by the Assad regime or its supporters,” in apparent reference to Iran and Russia.

Russia has been fighting terrorists in the country on the invitation of the Syrian government, while the US presence there has been deemed aggressive by Damascus.

TOXIC BORDER POLLUTION SICKENS U.S. BORDER PATROL AGENTS

The pungent, salty air that emerged over South Bay communities last February was not a familiar whiff of wrack decomposing on our favorite beaches. In fact, it was the estimated 143 million gallons of raw sewage that raced down the rugged canyons of Tijuana, funneling directly through the mouth of the Tijuana River into the Pacific Ocean. Beachgoers, visitors, and residents of San Diego County have suffered the devastating effects of these spills for decades—yet little has been done to remedy the origins.

The perpetual disaster has direct, negative consequences on our local economy, tourism, marine life and growing public health concerns for residents of San Diego County. A problem that has remained dormant for many years has come into the spotlight in recent months due to the direct effect it is having on U.S. Border Patrol agents and, consequently, our national security.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This cannot be allowed to continue; both Mexico and the US have to work together toward remediation of the situation, and soon!!

But Sir, It’s an American Ship.' 'Never Mind, Hit Her!' When Israel Attacked USS Liberty

Amid the jubilee celebrations for the Six-Day War, the tragic story of the American spy ship USS Liberty - which was bombed by an Israeli fighter jet and torpedo boats on June 8, 1967 in the eastern Mediterranean - was somewhat overlooked. Thirty-four American sailors were killed in the Israeli attack and many others were wounded ... A new book published in May ... The 302 pages of "Remember the Liberty!: Almost Sunk by Treason on the High Seas" include quite a number of documents, testimonies, arguments and information that were gathered in the subsequent 50 years. The authors' bottom line is that then-U.S. President Lyndon B. Johnson was behind the attack, in an attempt to blame then-Egyptian President Gamal Abdel Nasser - an excuse that would then enable the United States to join the Six-Day War.
Note: Recently a fund raiser for aid to the Israel Defense forces netted 15.3 million dollars to the attackers of this ship!!

Remembering the U.S.S. Liberty

The attack on the U.S.S. Liberty by Israeli warplanes and torpedo boats on June 8, 1967, has almost faded from memory, with a younger generation completely unaware that a United States naval vessel was once deliberately attacked and nearly sunk by America's "greatest friend and ally" Israel ... So the treatment of the U.S.S. Liberty should surprise no one in a country whose governing class has been for decades doing the bidding of the powerful lobby of a tiny client state that has been nothing but trouble and expense for the United States of America. Will it ever end? As the Israel Lobby currently controls the relevant parts of the federal government and much of the media change is not likely to happen overnight, but there are some positive signs.
