U.S. BOMBS WITH WHITE PHOSPHOROUS WHILE BLAMING ASSAD FOR USING ‘SARIN’

On June 14th, Human Rights Watch headlined “Danger From US White Phosphorous”, and linked to far more evidence of America’s firebombings in Syria and Iraq, than had ever been presented regarding the alleged-by-America April 4th sarin gas event that allegedly resulted in Syria from one of Assad’s bombs on that day having hit a ‘rebel’ warehouse that might have had sarin in it — a mistake if it had even happened as America charged it happened. America then on April 7th missile-bombed in ‘retaliation’ one of Assad’s military airports, a supposed ‘punishment’, which was praised by U.S. ’news’media for that additional U.S. invasion of Syria’s sovereign territory, where the U.S. is an occupier and an enemy-invader instead of any legal participant in the war there. (Russia and Syria urged an independent investigation to determine what had actually happened on April 4th; it was “blocked by Western delegations without any explanations.”)

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As a Christian pacifist activist, I am appalled that I am a citizen of a country which so frequently indulges in war crimes with such impunity.

IF, in fact, this is what is truly the meaning of "American exceptionalism", which appears to be "assassinate at will to support specific geopolitical agendas", I want none of it, thank you very much!!

TREY GOWDY JUST BROKE HIS SILENCE, COMES FORWARD WITH MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENT ABOUT TRUMP JR.

Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., said that the details in the emails disclosed by Donald Trump Jr. regarding a meeting he had with a Russian lawyer in June 2016 disturbed him deeply. During an interview with Fox News host Martha MacCallum Tuesday, Gowdy explained his concern had less to do with what actually happened at the meeting than with how it was handled.

Old Planned Parenthood pamphlet: Abortion is ‘dangerous’ to the ‘life and health’ of women

An undated pamphlet from Planned Parenthood Federation of America, formerly named the Birth Control Federation of America, reveals that abortion is not health care, as the abortion giant now unabashedly claims. Instead, the pamphlet, housed online by Smith College Libraries, describes abortion as a procedure that “kills life after it has begun” and “dangerous” to the “life and health” of the mother. In discussing birth control, it reads: “Abortion kills life after it has begun. … Abortion is dangerous to your life and health.” The back of the pamphlet also contains Planned Parenthood’s iconic slogan, “every child a wanted child,” which may stem from the eugenics movement. Planned Parenthood’s founder, Margaret Sanger, was a staunch eugenicist who held racist affiliations and believed in the elimination of certain groups of people.

Fracking can contaminate rivers and lakes with radioactive material, study finds

The vast amount of waste water produced by fracking can contaminate rivers, lakes and other waterways with radioactive material and hormone-affecting chemicals, according to new research.

The study tested sediments and groundwater downstream of a treatment plant in Pennsylvania that was designed to make the water used as part of the fracking process fit for release into the environment.

The scientists, from Pennsylvania State University and other academic institutions, discovered that despite this process there were “high loads of chloride, barium, strontium, radium and organic compounds” in the Conemaugh River watershed.

Stream sediments in Blacklick Creek, just downstream from one treatment plant, were found to contain about 200 times the level of radium upstream of the plant.

The highest concentration of radium found was just 14 per cent below the level at which it would have to be treated as radioactive waste in some US states.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If, in fact, this data is correct, why in the name of heaven is this process still allowed to continue in the US?!?

Because of one 5 letter word: money.

And it's never the executives of the companies doing the fracking who have to live with environmental and health consequences of these processes; it is the "flyover/expendable" Americans who are forced to live with the consequences of these practices.

And of course, oil companies are very generous contributors to both Republicans and Democrats, so do not expect the political class in this country to even attempt to protect their "alleged" constituents from the harm fracking creates.

oil and gas: top political recipients of contributions

What is it going to take to get this process to stop?!?

I would imagine that a couple of high profile "Erin Brokovich"- type, class action lawsuits, in concert, just might. But it's going to take some attorneys with skills, and courage, to get the kind of compensation people who have suffered dramatically because of fracking in their neighborhood deserve.

Tennessee restricts use of Monsanto pesticide as problems spread

Tennessee on Thursday imposed restrictions on the use of dicamba, a flagship pesticide for Monsanto Co, to become the fourth state to take action as problems spread over damage the weed killer causes to crops not genetically modified to withstand it.

Dicamba is sprayed by farmers on crops genetically modified to resist it but it has drifted, damaging vulnerable soybeans, cotton and other crops across the southern United States. Farmers have fought with neighbors over lost crops and brought lawsuits against dicamba producers.

Arkansas banned its use last week and Missouri, which initially halted dicamba spraying, has joined Tennessee with tight restrictions on when and in what weather spraying can be done. Kansas is investigating complaints.

Monsanto, which said it has spent years working to make dicamba stickier and limit drift when it is sprayed, is campaigning to overturn the bans.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One can only hope that the lawsuits against this company will ultimately cause it to go bankrupt, for all the evil and harm it has created.

Miami Jewish group slams Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters before his concert tonight

One of Miami’s leading Jewish organizations accused Pink Floyd star Roger Waters of anti-Semitism ahead of his concert Thursday at the AmericanAirlines Arena, as a long-running controversy over the singer’s anti-Israel views follows him to South Florida.“Anti-Semitism and Hatred are Not Welcome in Miami,” the Greater Miami Jewish Federation stated in an online ad the non-profit placed on miamiherald.com. It linked to a message on the group’s website that called for sponsors to pull out of the concert and stated: “Mr. Waters, your vile messages of anti-Semitism, anti-Zionism and hatred are not welcome in this community.”

Minnesota woman is last who can tell of Nazi concentration camp horrors

The sense of urgency to the cause has also added life to Meisel's story, which is still capable of surprising even her family – like her instant recognition of a guard who leered at her and other female prisoners each day as they undressed, before beating them.
Last month, the Germans focused on Meisel's memory of life inside Stutthof alongside her mother and older sister. It meant revisiting painful memories: a guard tearing out her hair to put on a child's doll, the sight of her mother entering the gas chamber, and the agony of her fingernails pried off by the camp commandant who kept his lush greenhouse in view of the doomed.
Note: More holocau$t, more lies, more liars!

House Democrat Threatens Trump’s Life on Social Media; Ludicrous! (Video)

Once again the political rhetoric in Washington is heating up, and if you listen to the mainstream media, you’ll hear all about how it’s not just people on the left who are constantly acting inappropriate, or calling for violence. You’ll hear that the calls for violence, or the abusive rhetoric has been a problem coming from both political parties, but the reality is that simply just is NOT true.

As a matter of fact, to even suggest such a thing is patently false, and anyone doing so knows damn well that it's false! When it comes to the Democrats not getting their way, it's always the same: They start with the personal attacks, then start telling outright lies if they have to, and when those don't work, there are calls for violence. You can set your watch to it. With Democrats, that behavior is NOT the exception as they would have you believe. It's the rule, and this week was no different...

Today’s Generation Will Witnesses The Bankruptcy of the United States! (Video)

In the immediate aftermath of Donald Trump’s historic win over Hillary Clinton, there were some in the alternative media who hypothesized that in the end, it was the global elites who actually chose Trump as their candidate, because they thought he would be the one to best preserve their interests if he presided over the official bankruptcy of the United States of America. Given some of his previous experience, it made him the far more suited of the two candidates for such a thing.

He’s By Far The Most Dangerous Politician In America (Video)

Every day it seems, a new piece of concrete evidence emerges vindicating President Trump of all the nonsense the far-left has accused him of, and yet every day the same evidence that vindicated him somehow gets spun to create an even larger false narrative. It's insane.

Furthermore, it also seems like every day there is another piece of concrete evidence in a never-ending trail of evidence linking Hillary Clinton and/or the DNC to an attempt to try and rig the 2016 presidential election, and yet every day, that evidence is pushed aside or gets drowned out by another crazy fairy tale being pushed by a master story teller with a vivid imagination, and sometimes referred to as the Grand Inquisitor, aka Rep. Adam Schiff.

Governments of the ‘Free’ World (And the atrocities they plan)

In the late eighteenth century, American founding father Thomas Jefferson reportedly stated, “When government fears the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny.” -- When a country degrades to the point that the government can grip its people in the pincers of arbitrary loss of assets, with no chance of recompense through the justice system, it’s safe to say that people can plan on henceforth living in fear.

Official Lies From the US Government — Even more, says Paul Craig Roberts.

Last Friday’s employment report is just another lie from the government. The report says that the unemployment rate is 4.4% and that June employment increased by 222,000 jobs. A rosy picture. But as I have just demonstrated, there are no fundamentals to support it. It is just another US government lie like Saddam Hussein’s weapons of mass destruction, Assad’s use of chemical weapons against his own people, the Russian invasion of Ukraine, and so forth and so on. The rosy unemployment picture is totally contrived. The unemployment rate is 4.4% because discouraged workers who have not searched for a job in the past four weeks are not counted as unemployed.

Camera-Shy Cops Have No Legal Recourse

Police across the country will have to adjust to the reality that any citizen with a smartphone can record them when they are on duty, because there is nothing they can legally do to stop it, as a federal appeals court confirmed last week.

The decision, by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 3rd Circuit, involved two incidents in which Philadelphia police officers forcibly interfered with people who were trying to record them. Such harassment, which often involves phone confiscation and trumped-up criminal charges, is sadly common, even though every federal appeals court to consider the issue has said it violates the First Amendment.

Mid-2017 US status: Trump joins War Criminals invading Syria, threatening Iran, pushing WW3. ‘We the People’s’ choice: basic integrity for .01% arrests, or surrender Earth to evil empire

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

Two weeks ago I reported status of lie-started and illegal US war on Syria, with ongoing threats of war on Iran. Additional and new data include:

US military now illegally occupy eight bases in Syria, with escalating bombing of Syria and Iraq of over 4,000 bombs/month and over 84,000 since 2014.

The US acknowledges ~500 civilian deaths from these bombs. Committing a bombing in another country that kills one person is a crime of murder. Using military to attack another country that is not an imminent threat of attacking one’s nation is an illegal War of Aggression.

U.S. Bases Strategically Placed To Prevent Syrian Military From Advancing; Outlining Borders Of Kurdistan

By Brandon Turbeville

Despite the spits and spurts of World War Three, it seems the United States (at least part of the establishment) and Russia are beginning to move toward a cooling of their approaches to the Syrian crisis. While we have seen this many times in the past – the apparent mutual understanding of Russia and the U.S. – we have been consistently been rattled by an abrupt push by the United States toward a greater involvement in Syria and a push that could very well be the catalyst for a third world war.

While there obviously remains the possibility that the United States will once again lash out like a dying lunatic empire, risking the lives of everyone on earth, we might also ask whether or not the U.S. has had a change in strategy or even perhaps whether or not the American “Plan B” is coming to fruition...

No One Would Buy My Photos, So Here They Are For Free: Mosul 2017

My name is Kainoa Little, and I am a Shoreline, Washington-based conflict photographer. I was in Mosul in April and May 2017, documenting Iraqi forces as they fought Islamic State militants to liberate the city.

I tried and failed to find newspapers and wire services who would purchase my photos. But the soldiers had fed me and given me a seat in their Humvees, and the refugees had tolerated my presence on some of the worst days of their lives. They very rightly expected that I would tell their story.

The worst uncertainty for me as a freelancer in conflict isn’t that I won’t be able to pay my rent; it’s that no one will see the story, and then I will have failed to give a voice to the voiceless. So I have tried to share them where I can, and hopefully people can imagine some of the human tragedy and triumph playing out in Mosul.

The cost of the F-35 jet program, already the most expensive U.S. weapons program ever, is estimated to climb further as the plane’s production period gets extended, according to figures submitted to Congress on Monday.

Total acquisition costs for Lockheed Martin Corp.’s next-generation fighter may rise about 7 percent to $406.5 billion, according to figures in a document known as a Selected Acquisition Report. That’s a reversal after several years of estimates that had declined to $379 billion recently from a previous high of $398.5 billion in early 2014.

The Pentagon’s F-35 program office said in a statement that the $27.5 billion increase is reflected in current “then-year” dollars that cover research, development, procurement and military construction. The separate roughly $1.1 trillion long-term operations and support estimate to keep the aircraft flying until 2070 increased by $35.3 billion.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why in the name of heaven is the Pentagon allowing this incredible waste on on one of it's biggest boondoggles ever?!? Because they cannot admit how wrong they were to greenlight production in the first place?!?

Were I President Trump, I would retire the fighter, have the "male attributes" to admit that it was a very flawed project, from its inception and not allow Lockheed Martin to bid on any military work whatsoever for at least the next 20 years.

Corporate failure to present a fighter that works as advertised can no longer be tolerated by the President, the Pentagon, and Congress.

Israel Bill Would Order Courts to Give Priority to Jewishness Over Democracy

Israel’s far-right coalition continues to grapple with different variations of a new draft bill that seeks to give Israel’s status as a Jewish nation-state primacy over all other legal concerns, including potential conflicts with being a democracy.

The latest revision defines Israel as “a Jewish and Democratic state,” but makes clear the first part is more important than the second part, explicitly ordering the Israeli High Court to favor Israel’s Jewish character over its democracy when the two issues conflict.

This is a particularly important issue for parts of the far-right coalition that complain the High Court often overrules some of the more overtly anti-democratic moves they try to make, usually involving hasty attempts to ban all Arab parties from participating in elections.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF this bill gets passed (and right now, I would suggest that this will happen), it will further marginalise Arab Israelis to the point of complete legal insignificance in the Israeli electoral system, and the courts.

Well Lookie Here=> Russian Lawyer Veselnitskaya is Pictured with Obama Ambassador to Russia – 8 Days After Trump Jr. Mtg.

Veselnitskaya told NBC News on Monday she was not with the Kremlin as was reported by The New York Times.

She confirmed her meeting with Donald Trump Jr. was about Russian adoptions in the US.

The law firm where Veselnitskaya is listed as managing partner, Kamerton Consulting, is based in a Moscow suburb and does not even have a website.

A staff member at Kamerton told The Associated Press Veselnitskaya was unavailable for comment on Monday.

Her office in Moscow may be a shell. There is no working phone, email or website.

Russian President Vladimir Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Monday that the Kremlin is unaware of a meeting between Trump’s senior staff and Veselnitskaya and “does not know who that is.”

GLOBALISM & PESTICIDES ARE BEHIND MASSIVE HONEYBEE DIE-OFF, BAYER STUDY CONFIRMS

Despite Big Agriculture claiming for years that their pesticides only kill pests, a report published in late June in the Journal Science proved what many people have suspected for years: the type of pesticides that Bayer pioneered, known as neonicotinoids, are responsible for diminishing numbers of honeybees.

“Two studies, conducted on different crops and on two continents … find that bees near corn crops are exposed to neonicotinoids for 3 to 4 months via nontarget pollen, resulting in decreased survival and immune responses, especially when co-exposed to a commonly used agrochemical fungicide.” the report said.

The studies even found neonicotinoid residue inside of hives where no chemicals had been used nearby. The study also noted that the presence of these insecticide residues was correlated with fewer queen bees in the hives and fewer egg cells in solitary bees nests.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Now, we know.

Yemen cholera cases pass 300,000 as outbreak spirals - ICRC

A cholera outbreak in war-torn Yemen is thought to have infected 300,000 people in the past 10 weeks, the International Committee of the Red Cross says.

The situation has continued to "spiral out of control", with about 7,000 new cases every day, the ICRC warned.

More than 1,700 associated deaths have been reported, according to the UN.
Yemen's health, water and sanitation systems are collapsing after two years of conflict between pro-government forces and the rebel Houthi movement.
Cholera is an acute diarrhoeal infection caused by ingestion of food or water contaminated with the bacterium Vibrio cholera.

Most of those infected will have no or mild symptoms but, in severe cases, the disease can kill within hours if left untreated.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Saudi and US leadership and military must be DELIGHTED with this current turn of events; fewer people to have to kill outright with bombs and bullets; just a couple of bulldozers for mass graves will be needed, as the epidemic continues to take hold here in Yemen.

And what really happened to that 66 million dollar donation last month to the UN from Saudi Prince Salman, allegedly, to ease the plight of this epidemic in a country with which Saudi Arabia is at war?!?

Prince Salman donates $66 million dollars to aid anti-cholera campaign in Yemen

Prince Salman very cynically understands that the UN, and its agencies move more slowly than do molasses in a cold January. IF he had really wanted something done quickly enough to stay the spread of this disease, this contribution should have gone to the ICRC (The International Committee of the Red Crescent, the Middle Eastern equivalent to America's Red Cross), or Doctors without Borders; both these organisations understand how to get medical boots on the ground, and quickly.

By the time the money is watered down at the UN, and bureaucratically disbursed, it will have been far too little, and far too late, but he will appear to have "done something" while the situation on the ground in Yemen simply translates into more bombings of innocent civilians; more malnutrition leading to death of Yemen's kids, due to the port blockades in Yemen; and more birth defects, stillbirths, and cancers from the Saudi use of DU in Yemen.

And one last question; I have to wonder if cholera has been deliberately placed in Yemen's drinking water, to hasten the rapidity of the spread of the epidemic?!?

Transport bosses refuse to release surveillance footage of a rash of train robberies on the BART to 'avoid racist stereotyping of suspects'

A San Francisco transport official has been caught out in a leaked memo telling staff footage of a recent robbery spree was not being released to stop people making 'racial generalizations'.

The Bay Area's BART system has been rocked by at least three robberies in recent weeks, including one incident that saw about 60 young people board a train, rob seven people and attack two others.

Two other high-profile incidents saw a total of about 16 young people involved in the robberies, while locals reported seeing or hearing of many more.

Despite the robberies, BART Assistant General Manager Kerry Hamill explained why surveillance footage and other images were not being released in a memo sent to the board of directors.

The Most Unusual (And Significant?) Solar Eclipse In U.S. History Will Happen Next Month On August 21

August 21st is the date of “the Great American Eclipse”, and the hype around it is already starting to reach a fever pitch. It is being called “the Great American Eclipse” because this will be the first total solar eclipse ever that is only visible in the United States. In other words, since the United States became a nation there has never been a total eclipse that was only visible here and nowhere else. And this will be the first total solar eclipse to cross from the west coast to the east coast in 99 years. So for those that love astronomy, this is bigger than the Super Bowl.

THE MEDIA SAYS THE US JUST LIBERATED MOSUL: HERE’S WHAT REALLY HAPPENED

“In June 2014, ISIS crossed the Syrian border into Iraq, effortlessly taking the strategic oil-rich cities of Mosul and Baiji and almost making it as far as Baghdad. Amid the terror group’s frightening victory, they uploaded images and footage of drive-by-shootings, large-scale death marches, and mass graves (following the mass executions of Iraqi soldiers).

“ISIS militants claimed massive quantities of American military equipment, including entire truckloads of humvees, helicopters, tanks, and artillery as their own. This was no secret to Washington, or even the world, as the militants photographed and recorded themselves and publicly flaunted their activity on social media.”

Was there a good reason the American military sat on its hands despite knowing full well that this was going on? As Anti-Media explained further:

CONNECTICUT CAPITAL HARTFORD DOWNGRADED TO JUNK BY S&P

And yet, while Illinois squirms in the agony of the unknown, another municipality that as recently as a month ago was rumored to be looking at a bankruptcy filing, the state capital of Connecticut, Hartford, no longer has to dread the unknown: on Tuesday afternoon, S&P pulled off the band-aid, and downgraded the city's bond rating by two notches to BB from BBB-, also known as junk, citing "growing liquidity pressures" and "weaker market access prospects", while keeping the city's General Obligation bonds on Creditwatch negative meaning more downgrades are likely imminent.

TWO ISRAELI COMPANIES: SPYING ON THE WORLD

In 2008, Amy Goodman of Democracy Now interviewed Bamford as his latest book, The Shadow Factory, was being released.

Bamford explained that, in the 1990s, everything changed for NSA. Previously, they’d been able to intercept electronic communications by using big dishes to capture what was coming down to Earth from telecom satellites.

But with the shift to fiber-optic cables, NSA was shut out. So they devised new methods.

For example, they set up a secret spy room at an AT&T office in San Francisco. NSA installed new equipment that enabled them to tap into the fiber-optic cables and suck up all traffic.

How Bamford describes this, in 2008, tells you exactly where the PRISM program came from:

“NSA began making these agreements with AT&T and other companies, and that in order to get access to the actual cables, they had to build these secret rooms in these buildings.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There are a couple of problems with all of this data-mining and sharing by US intelligent agencies.

First, the bad guys already have a "Rolls Royce" standard of encryption that the NSA cannot, generally break.

And secondly, with all the data being collected, those gatherers of this intel are simply drowning in it; there's just too much.

The City of Seattle Approved an Income Tax, but Faces Court Battle

Seattle has done one thing effectively: drive out earners. Anyone making over $250,000 within city limits of Seattle is now subject to a new income tax, but the new law is likely to face a court battle over its unconstitutionality.

The cheers from the socialists as this blatant constitutional violation was on full display was possibly the most horrific part of the entire debacle. People are actually cheering and happy that the government is stealing money from those they don’t even know. It’s like humanity has never existed.

A BAD BLUEPRINT: INTELLIGENCE AGENCIES COOPTING PRIVATE ENTERPRISE

Earlier this week, The New York Times published a story on how top Trump administration officials have asked Erik Prince, the founder of Blackwater, and billionaire Stephen Feinberg, who owns military contractor DynCorp, to come up with alternative plans on how to proceed in Afghanistan.
Perhaps not surprisingly, the two men, who have made untold sums of money off the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, came up with a plan to rely on private contractors instead of the US military. This story may sound familiar and it usually doesn’t end well.

Last month — after The Wall Street Journal fired Jay Solomon, its chief foreign affairs correspondent, for failure to disclose shady business deals with one of his sources — we published a book excerpt that revealed some juicy details about that source, Farhad Azima, and his unsavory colleagues.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is only one intelligent answer to that belching cesspool which is Afghanistan, 16 years on: have NATO and US troops leave as quickly as is safe, then negotiate with whatever government is left standing in Kabul for rights to the oil pipelines (which is why Bush sent our troops there n the first place); the mineral rights, and rights to the opium, which funds "off the shelf" operations over which Congress has utterly no oversight.

And, BTW, here are some images of American troops guarding those opium poppy fields in Afghanistan:

US occupation leads to all time high heroin production

US turns a blind eye to opium in Afghan town

The US government has have spent far too much blood and money in a country with the international reputation as being "the graveyard for empires"; time to go.

Older Hondas and newer Toyotas are among the country’s most-stolen vehicles

The National Insurance Crime Bureau reported in its annual “Hot Wheels” survey that Honda’s Civic and Accord were the most-stolen vehicles last year, followed by pickup trucks made by Ford and Chevrolet, and then by the Toyota Camry and Nissan Altima. A Dodge pickup, the Chevy Impala, the Toyota Corolla and the Jeep Cherokee rounded out the top 10.

But thieves aren’t stealing just any Civics or Accords. The bureau’s report said that Hondas from the late 1990s were the most targeted models — specifically the 1997 Accord and 1998 Civic. That's because those models were sold in very high volume, were built well enough to still be on the road, and did not include the “smart key” technology that makes newer Hondas much more difficult to steal.

TIME TO RETIRE: MCCAIN JUST DID SOMETHING SICK TO TRUMP VOTERS IN THIS NEW VIRAL VIDEO

Senator John McCain just lobbed another criticism against the Trump Administration and every American voter in an interview with CBS. The interviewer asked McCain how he felt about Secretary of State Rex Tillerson saying about working with Russia in the Mideast. What you are about to witness is so disgusting that McCain should resign immediately.

Was Trump Junior Framed?

As a storm breaks over Washington, and the details of foreign “collusion” and intrigue over the 2016 presidential election break out into the open, I just happened to be re-reading Gore Vidal’s The Golden Age, a novel set in the run up to World War II in which pretty much the same plot line plays out on the same terrain.
There is Don Junior, the fresh-faced and rather obtuse presidential progeny, who walks straight into the arms of the clownish Bob Goldstone, a former British tabloid journalist and events promoter, who set up the fateful meeting. There is Natalia Veselnitskaya, a Russian lawyer who previously worked with Fusion GPS, the dirty tricks firm employed by the Never Trump crowd that came up with the salacious “dirty dossier,” claiming that Trump had been compromised by Russian intelligence.

The Latest Russian Plot: Hacking Nuclear Power Plants

Yet another Russia story is being reported breathlessly from our nation’s finest major media outlets, this time hyperventilating over the claim that the Russians are trying to hack into U.S. nuclear infrastructure.

The New York Times, Newsweek, Bloomberg, the Washington Post, NBC, the Chicago Tribune, Business Insider, the Hill and numerous other outlets have pushed the idea that Russia is behind recent malicious cyber activity at several U.S. nuclear plants—so what gives?

Mass evacuation prepared as ‘Volcano of FIRE’ bursts into life & could erupt at ANY MOMENT

RESIDENTS of a nearby volcano in Guatemala are on standby to evacuate at any moment after the beast burst into life.

Volcan de Fuego, which translates as ‘Volcano of Fire’, shot ash up to a kilometre into the air after it violently erupted in the evening of Monday, July 10.

The local communities of Morelia Panimaché, Santa Sofía, and El Porvenir have been littered with ash from the volcano, and experts could be told to leave at any moment.

Sedition: U.S. Intelligence Community Prepping For Soft Coup (Video)

Sadly, because of how dishonest the mainstream media is, most Americans do not realize the severity of the divide that presently exists within this country, and the lengths to which the far-left is willing to go to remove President Trump from office. For that reason, anyone in the alternative media who attempts to warn people of the potential for “civil war,” or for “martial law” is regarded as “conspiracy theorist.”

There are however, a very small and select few in the mainstream media that recognize the gravity of the situation, and realize how dangerous the situation is becoming. Monica Crowley recognized the far-left's agenda for what it was right from the start. She's often said:
