JAMES MATTIS, A WARRIOR IN WASHINGTON

When I asked what worried him most in his new position, I expected him to say ISIS or Russia or the defense budget. Instead, he said, “The lack of political unity in America. The lack of a fundamental friendliness. It seems like an awful lot of people in America and around the world feel spiritually and personally alienated, whether it be from organized religion or from local community school districts or from their governments.

Discoverer Of DNA's Double-Helix Banned From U of I For "Failing Test Of Decency"

Nobel Laureate James Watson, one of the world's most important living scientists, was set to give a lecture at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Until he was disinvited - not because of anything related to his groundbreaking co-discovery of the structure of DNA but because some faculty members say he has racist views.

Free Money: Potential Presidential Candidate Mark Zuckerberg Suggests That All Americans Should Get A ‘Universal Basic Income’

Should everyone in America receive a “basic income” directly from the federal government? Considering the fact that we are already 20 trillion dollars in debt, such a concept may sound quite foolish to many of you, but this is an idea that is really starting to gain traction in leftist circles.

The Donald Meets Sun Tzu and is Found Wanting

Some two thousand and five hundred years ago one of my favorite strategic analysts, a Chinese general and Imperial Adviser, Sun Tzu, wrote his tiny but historic text, The Art of War. It’s used today as essential reading all over the world, including by students at the US West Point military academy, the incubator for America’s future generals. In his treatise Sun Tzu describes five essential qualities needed in a successful leader, in his case, a successful general.

The qualities apply to anyone in a position of leadership responsibility. The problem is not Donald Trump. The problem is that we, American citizens, blinded ourselves by wishful thinking that finally someone would stand up and 2make America great again.”

TAKING DOWN THE REAL MONUMENTS TO SLAVERY

European-America is being stolen; with hardly any notice or opposition, white, European America is being deconstructed. All over the South, America’s history, monuments, heritage, identity and culture is being erased.

Marxists, nihilists, Zionists/Communist, deconstructionists, envious haters and the programmed response of egalitarianism as a new age religion, are eviscerating the Euro-American cultural/historical heritage of America.

Growing Concern Over Brothers Arrested With Guns, Bomb-Making Materials

There are growing concerns about the arrest of two brothers with ties to the Middle East who authorities say had an arsenal with bomb-making materials, guns and ammunition in their car.

Twenty-seven-year-old Abdullah Alrifahe and 26-year-old Majid Alrifahe were arrested on May 11 in north Minneapolis.

‘ISRAEL DOESN’T NEED GREEN LIGHT FROM WASHINGTON FOR SETTLEMENT BUILDING’

A day after Trump left the Jewish state, Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman confidently stated that Israel doesn't need White House approval if it wants to continue building.

Israel doesn’t need permission from Washington to build homes in West Bank settlements, Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman said on Wednesday, adding that plans for several thousand units could be advanced in two weeks.

“We didn’t ask for a green light, and we won’t ask for a green light [from the US].

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is Minister Lieberman, verbally "relieving himself", and claiming it's raining, and he does so because previous US Presidents have allowed the politicians in Tel Aviv to do this with impunity.

US ‘Non-Combat’ Troops in Firing Range of ISIS Fighters in Iraq

The ever-growing number of US special forces engaging in direct combat notwithstanding, the Pentagon is ever determined to portray their thousands of normal troops that are deployed in Iraq, are purely “non-combat” in nature, and that they are engaged in advisory and training operations.

Which has never really been true, and is getting increasing less true all the time, as ground troops continue to get closer and closer to direct combat operations, and are now is Mosul, firing mortars at ISIS fighters who can be no more than a mile and a half away.

It’s difficult to reckon exactly what “in combat” means anymore, since the Pentagon is forever trying to define combat-seeming exercises as something short of that. Still, firing mortars certainly isn’t a “training exercise,” and if they are within firing range of ISIS, ISIS is within firing range of them

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Prediction; no matter how the Pentagon characterises this, and other, deployments to Iraq, the US military is most probably never leaving completely.

Brazil's Temer Deploys Army as Protesters Battle Police

- Protesters demanding the resignation of Brazilian President Michel Temer staged running battles with police and set fire to a ministry building in Brasilia on Wednesday, prompting the scandal-hit leader to order the army onto the streets.

Police unleashed volleys of tear gas, stun grenades and rubber bullets to halt tens of thousands of protesters as they marched towards Congress to call for Temer's ouster and an end to his austerity program.

Masked protesters fired powerful fireworks at police, set ablaze furniture in the Agriculture Ministry, and sprayed anti-Temer graffiti on government buildings.

It was the most violent protest in Brasilia since anti-government demonstrations in 2013 and fueled a political crisis sparked by allegations Temer condoned paying off a potential witness in a massive corruption probe.

The scandal has raised chances Brazil could see a second president fall in less than a year.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I don't see this ending well for President Temer, particularly if he has called out the Brazilian Army against the demonstrators.

I hope and pray that there can be a peaceful resolution of these issues, with Temer making the choice to step down, but I don't see this coming.

The big question here is, how long is the Army going to stay loyal to the existing government?!?

Iranian Drones Circling Above US Aircraft Carrier 'Getting on Pentagon's Nerves'

Iranian unmanned aerial vehicles are said to have become a fixture in the skies above the USS George H.W. Bush deployed to the Persian Gulf to take part in Washington's anti-Daesh efforts in the Middle East, political analyst Ilya Plekhanov wrote for Sputnik, adding that these surveillance missions have gotten on the Pentagon's nerves.

"Americans use this aircraft carrier to carry out airstrikes against Daesh targets in Iraq and Syria. Iranians use their drones to observe these operations, irritating US troops who are unable to do anything about it since they are in international waters," the analyst said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I certainly hope that no Naval commander in the Persian Gulf is going to go "all cowboy" on these Iranian drone deployments, and decide he's going to shoot them out of the sky "to teach those danged Iranians a lesson", despite the reality that the ships are sailing in international waters.

That huge weapons deal which President Trump has just inked with Saudi Arabia, coupled with the increase in funds for US defensive (and in their case, offensive) weapons capabilities to Israel, should be giving giving the Iranian government pause right now, in terms of defending itself from a proxy US/Saudi/Israeli attack against it, and just what Russia is prepared to do to prevent this from being successful, if such a thing actually happens.

If I were Iranian President Rouhani right now, I would be picking up a hot line to Russia's President Putin, and having a serious conversation about this possibility.

Blowback? Manchester bomber linked to terrorist group which UK allegedly backed

Manchester suicide bomber Salman Abedi and his father, Ramadan, had long-standing links to a violent jihadist group which may have had British backing for the 2011 Libyan war and a 1996 attempt to kill then-Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi.

US grants Israel extra defence aid: Netanyahu

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Washington has added tens of millions of dollars in extra defence aid for Israel, a day after US President Donald Trump wound up a visit.

He did not say over what timeframe the money would be disbursed. The addition comes on the heels of a weekend announcement of a massive US-Saudi arms deal.

Under a 2016 agreement, Washington already bankrolls Israel's military spending to the tune of $3.8 billion dollars annually over 10 years, making the Jewish state the top recipient of US assistance.

"Three days ago, the US added another $75 million to the aid package for the missile defence programme," Netanyahu said at a memorial ceremony for Israel's dead in the 1967 Six-Day War.

He did not elaborate.

Israel relies heavily on US military aid. Its total defence budget amounts to some $16 billion, excluding US assistance.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

While homeless Vets still sleep rough in our streets; while the US infrastructure rots; while kids are dodging bullets on their way home from school because the gangs in this country are out of control; Mr. President, please: what the hell are you thinking, in doling out taxpayer dollars to fund an horrifically apartheid, self-proclaimed theocracy, with nuclear weapons?!?

‘Furious’ British Police Suspend Intelligence Sharing with United States Following Manchester Bombing Leaks

The world’s closest intelligence sharing arrangement is in jeopardy after key details and photographs from the Manchester bombing were apparently leaked by United States’s law enforcement sources to domestic journalists, leaving Manchester Police and the British government — who are collecting and analysing the finds — “furious”.

The United Kingdom has now stopped passing intelligence gathered as part of the investigation into the Manchester bombing to the United States according to claims made by the British state broadcaster BBC.

While British police had discovered the identity of Salman Abedi, the suicide bomber who killed 22 in Manchester on Monday, the name was withheld from the media initially for operational reasons. Yet less than 24 hours after the attack took place, American newspapers citing “government sources” were able to name the attacker.

Hannity says liberal fascists after sponsors; 1 is leaving

Sean Hannity says a media watchdog is guilty of “liberal fascism” for targeting advertisers on his Fox News Channel show, as one company announced Wednesday that it would no longer hawk its wares there.

The Chicago-based Cars.com said that it had been “watching closely” and recently decided to suspend its backing of Hannity.

Hannity, the sole survivor from Fox’s once stable and powerful prime-time lineup, has been a strong backer of President Donald Trump and believes the president is under attack from media and opponents who want to destroy him. On Wednesday, Hannity said he would no longer talk about a discredited story involving a murdered Democratic National Committee chairman after speaking to the man’s family, and after Fox had earlier retracted an online story it had written about the case.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Welcome to our world, Mr. Hannity.

Right after the alleged suicide of Vincent Foster, my husband, Mike, asked a very logical question about the appearance of the body, in the image released by the White House to the press.

He was working at a visual effects house, in the same building in which CNN's office in LA was located. At lunch, he shared a screen cap of the image with some friends, and noticed that the CNN people were listening to what he had to say very intently.

The bottom line was, if Foster had killed himself the way the Clinton White House said it happened, with a gunshot to the mouth, there would have been blood everywhere; but there was no blood whatsoever. The image was staged and faked.

Within 24 hours after that, Mike not only lost his job for absolutely no good reason; then, the death threats started, as Mike had a publicly listed phone number, because he wanted potential employers to know how to find him.

And not only was he fired, but also, every computer animation company in the greater LA area was told to NOT hire him, and that all of his demo reel was work stolen from other people.

I am one of the most logical, pragmatic Americans, Mr. Hannity, you could ever meet. Had you told me that this could have happened in 20th century America, before we lived through this, I would have laughed out loud, and dismissed it out of hand.

Liberal fascists are brilliantly adept at character assassination, when physical assassination is...impractical. But we both know that we are lucky to be alive, given the Clinton Cartel's penchant for the later:

What is Operation Temperer: Theresa May becomes first PM to deploy up to 5,000 soldiers on streets

Theresa May’s unprecedented decision to deploy up to 5,000 armed troops at key strategic sites makes her the first Prime Minister to use a new plan for a show of force in the face of major terrorist threats.

It puts her at odds with her predecessor David Cameron who was reluctant to use the controversial power.

Operation Temperer - the government plan to put thousands of soldiers on the streets in response to a major terrorist threat, was devised in 2015 and had been a secret until it was accidentally leaked to a newspaper.

Whitehall officials had been keen to keep it under wraps because it was considered so sensitive.

David Cameron was fearful that implementing the plan would provoke comparisons to the Troubles in Northern Ireland, when British soldiers patrolled the streets for decades.

He also worried that it might give the impression that the government had lost control and was imposing martial law.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

But the question one has to ask here, is will this program actually keep Brits more safe?!?

And please remember: the Manchester bomber was known to MI 5 long before he bombed the arena.

Drug Cop Who Spent 14 Years Undercover

Yet another police officer is speaking out against the drug war, this time in the United Kingdom. Former officer Neil Woods worked as an undercover drug cop for 14 years, infiltrating some of the most violent gangs in Britain only to learn his tactics were worsening the drug epidemic. Now, he advocates ending the drug war and decriminalizing drugs as he admits his own role in fueling violence and the proliferation of narcotics.

HOW THE BRITISH DEEP STATE TURNED MANCHESTER INTO AL-QAEDA TOWN UK

Anti-Gaddafi Libyans living in Manchester had been trained, armed and aided by Britain to wage jihad against the leadership of Muammar Gaddafi.

More and more information is emerging on how the savage terrorist atrocity recently committed in Manchester was a classic case of terrorist blow-back, a phenomenon describing how when western governments fund, arm and aid terrorists, they often come back to commit horrific crimes against the citizens of the countries which funded and aided them.
It has been confirmed that the father of the Manchester ISIS bomber was a member of the al-Qaeda affiliated Libyan Islamic Fighting Group. The Libyan Islamic Fighting Group was initially comprised of battle hardened fighters who traveled to Afghanistan in the 1980s to fight the Soviet Union and the secular government in Kabul.

YET ANOTHER VIDEO SHOWS U.S.-FUNDED WHITE HELMETS ASSISTING PUBLIC EXECUTIONS IN REBEL-HELD SYRIA

Syria Civil Defense, popularly known as the White Helmets, can be seen in a new video assisting in a public execution in a rebel-held town in Syria. It is at least the second such execution video featuring members of the Nobel Prize-nominated group.

The White Helmets have received at least $23 million in funding from the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), a wing of the State Department. The British Foreign Office and other European governments have pitched in as well.

Frequently cited as an invaluable source of information by major Western media outlets, the group was the subject of an Academy Award-winning 2016 Netflix documentary, The White Helmets.

Endorsements from A-list Hollywood celebrities like George Clooney and Justin Timberlake, as well as Hillary Clinton and British Foreign Minister Boris Johnson, have followed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Warning: very disturbing and graphic video.

But this is the US-enabled "business as usual" in Syria.

And the Nobel Prize has become a complete and despicable joke, ever since it was awarded to Henry Kissinger.

UK TORIES SAY THEY'LL EXPLOIT MANCHESTER'S DEAD TO BAN WORKING CRYPTO IN THE UK

One of UK Prime Minister Theresa May's government ministers told a reporter from The Sun that the government is planning on invoking the "Technical Capabilities Orders" section of the Snoopers Charter, a 2016 domestic spying bill; the "orders" allow the government to demand that companies cease using working cryptography in their products and services, substituting it with deliberately defective code that can be broken.

The source told The Sun that the government would cite the Manchester bombing as pretense for invoking the orders, though there's no indication that the security services' failure to prevent the bombing was caused by their inability to pierce cryptographically protected communications.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The way Prime Minister May's government is taking advantage of this tragedy makes me absolutely sick, and reminds me of the saying attributed to Rahm Emanuel, when he was advisor to President Clinton: "Never let a good crisis go to waste!"

The Manchester incident is simply an "excuse/justification" to ram this law through.

There is no proof, whatsoever, at this point that cryptography was involved, or played a part, in any way, in this horrific bombing; and the real problem here, is that the "bad guys" already have unbreakable cryptography, which neither the US nor UK intelligence agencies can crack.

And to any corporations in the UK using cryptography to keep corporate information safe, move the hell out of this country while you still can, and make sure the reasons for your departure are very publicly known.

‘TRUCKLOADS’ OF US ARMS AND AMMO REACH KURDISH MILITIA IN SYRIA – REPORTS

Over 100 trucks loaded with US armaments and ammunition, including heavy mortars and anti-tank missiles, have reached the Kurdish controlled northern Syrian city of Hasakah over the past weeks, Turkish and Kurdish media report.
The US arms shipment was reserved for the multi-ethnic Syrian militia known as the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) dominated by Kurdish YPG units, according to the media reports.

The SDF is fighting Islamic State (IS, former ISIS/ISIL) and is preparing to launch an offensive on the city of Raqqa, considered to be the self-proclaimed capital of IS in Syria.

The trucks carrying the arsenal crossed into Syria from northern Iraq through the Simelka border crossing on two separate occasions on May 15 and May 20, Turkey's Daily Sabah reports.

The convoys reportedly moved to Hasakah and later headed to the Raqqa region where the SDF are currently battling Islamic State militants.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The question I would have to ask right now is, how long will Syria, Russia and Turkey allow this destabilisation to move forward in Syria?!?

Because the establishment of an independent Kurdistan will be seen as an existential threat by Turkey, who consider the Kurds an existential threat, and the Syrians and Russians, who don't dont want Syria having to yield one inch of its sovereign territory?!?

I don't know what the Vegas odds are on this, but I have to wonder; just when will American troops, fighting with the Kurds, be meeting up with Russian ground troops here?!?

Because my concern is, this is only a matter of when, not if, this happens, at this point.

MI5 FAILED TO STOP MANCHESTER BOMBER DESPITE ‘WARNINGS FROM FRIENDS’ – REPORT

A relative of the Manchester bomber warned British authorities he was “dangerous” and that he thought being a suicide bomber was “OK,” it has emerged, amid concerns that chances to stop him were missed.

On Monday night, Salman Abedi detonated a “highly sophisticated” nail bomb at Manchester Arena, killing 22 people including young children. Twenty people are in a critical condition in hospital. It was Britain’s worst terrorist attack since the 7/7 atrocity 12 years ago.

Abedi’s support for terrorism was reported this year to MI5, and five years ago friends had called Britain’s anti-terrorist hotline with concerns about his views, the Times reports.

It is unclear whether Abedi had been under any form of surveillance.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There are only two possible conclusions one can take away from this information.

Either that MI5 is a gang of bumbling, professionally impotent, inept, idiots; or they knew this might go down, but decided not to stop it in order to "numb" the British people to more of these attacks happening, as "the price of the British financial empire doing business" , and allowed it to happen, as a "justification" to surveille the British people more intensely, and create more draconian control of the internet.

There is no middle ground here, whatsoever.

And the bottom line here is, the people of the UK are being left completely unprotected from the blowback of the carnage their government has created in its actions against other countries, notably those in the Middle East and Africa.

To think that there will be utterly no consequences from invasions, and the accompanying murders, to expropriate resources to which the invading government, and its toady corporations, have no moral right; to regime change that government, making sure it is western-centric; and to insure that those resources will only be sold in specific currencies to specific countries, and not others, is absolute, utter, and complete madness.

And yet, this is the madness to which those in the bowels of power in the US, and UK cling, and use to "justify" their future military misadventures, ultimately causing the people of both countries to suffer.

So welcome to the "new normal" in the UK and Europe.

And unfortunately, I am very concerned that this kind of incident will continue, until someone in the governments of the US and UK has the horse-sense to start funding alternative energy that actually works, and can drive a tank, or power an airplane, making fossil fuel irrelevant.

Of course, that...would be logical.

CIVILIANS KILLED BY US LARGELY IGNORED AS ENDLESS GLOBAL WAR CONTINUES FROM

Contradicting a version of events presented by the U.S. military and reported widely by the corporate press, a human rights group and a journalist in Yemen are citing witnesses who said a raid by U.S. Navy SEALs on Monday night killed multiple innocent civilians and not just "Al Qaeda militants" as the Pentagon claimed.

"This new flawed raid by President Trump shows the US is not capable of distinguishing a terrorist from an innocent civilian."
—Kate Higham, Reprieve. Reprieve, a UK-based human rights group, cited witnesses from the village of Al-Jubah in Marib province, where the raid took place, and offered the names of five civilians killed as Nasser Ali Mahdi Al-Adhal; Al-Ghader Saleh Salem Al-Adhal; Saleh Al-Taffaf; Yasser Al-Taffaf Al-Adhel; and Shebreen Saeed Salem Al-Adhal.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"The medically fragile elderly, and infants, are ALWAYS Al Qaeda militants!" - Official US government souse.

But seriously, assassinating medically fragile elderly people, who are someone's grandpa, uncle, or dad, can be a wonderful recruiting tool to get more young men radicalised to the point of wanting to become jihadists in their own right.

It is a tool for creating perpetual war, and our military understand that; and yet, they keep doing it. And the most horrific thing about the US-enabled Saudi war against Yemen is, that the only possible answers have to be political rather than more warfare.

France’s Macron seeks to extend state of emergency to November

President Emmanuel Macron will ask France’s parliament to extend a state of emergency, in place since the 2015 attacks by Islamic State (IS) group militants, following this Monday’s suicide bombing in Manchester.

France’s new president said in a statement that he will ask lawmakers to prolong the measure from July 15, its current expiration date, until November 1. It would be the sixth extension of the state of emergency, which gives police exceptional powers.

He made the decision after a security meeting Wednesday in which top officials "studied the implications of this new terrorist attack on measures of protection to ensure the security of our compatriots".

The statement from the Elysée presidential palace once again noted “the bonds that unite France and the United Kingdom in the fight against terrorism”.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation: France's state of emergency will never be lifted!!

Trump calls Nazi Holocaust 'history's darkest hour

U.S. President Donald Trump paid tribute at Israel's Yad Vashem memorial on Tuesday to the six million Jews killed in the Nazi Holocaust, calling it an indescribable act of evil. Holding hands, the president and First Lady Melania Trump walked solemnly to lay a wreath together upon the ashes of Holocaust victims, buried at the site's Hall of Remembrance. "Words can never describe the bottomless depths of that evil, or the scope of the anguish and destruction. It was history's darkest hour," Trump said in a short speech after the memorial ceremony. "It was the most savage crime against God and his children," said Trump, who is visiting Israel and the Palestinian Territories on the second leg of his first foreign trip since taking office in January.

The Moral Myopia of Trump’s Foreign Policy

Saudi Arabia outlaws Christianity as a public practice. There are no Christian churches in Saudi Arabia, and it is against the law to build them. The Saudi Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice actually prohibits the practice of any religion other than Islam. Freedom House, a US government- funded NGO, has designated Saudi Arabia as the "worst of the worst." And lest anyone forget, 15 of the 19 hijackers who flew planes into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, killing over 3,000 people, were Wahhabi Sunnis from Saudi Arabia. I wonder if Secretary of State Tillerson understands that the Saudi Kingdom openly violates religious freedom, freedom of the press, and basic inalienable human rights, especially for women.

Police investigating the Manchester Arena bomb attack have stopped sharing information with the US after leaks to the media, the BBC understands

UK officials were outraged when photos appearing to show debris from the attack appeared in the New York Times.
It came after the name of bomber Salman Abedi was leaked to US media just hours after the attack, which left 22 dead.

FIRE BURN AND CAULDRON BUBBLE FOR TRUMP

Trump has made this huge mess and must now live with it. Yes, he is being treated unfairly by appointment of a special prosecutor when the titanic sleaze of the Clintons was never investigated. But that's what happens when you are widely detested. No mercy for Trump, a man without any mercy for others ... Isolated and besieged as Trump is, he may have to depend more on support from Israel and its American partisans rather than forcing a Mideast peace settlement. Israel insists there be no change to the status quo that leaves Palestine an open air prison. America has not so far become great again.

Trump's Trip and Taking Sides in the Middle East

... As usual, Iran is used as chief bogeyman, a habit that extends well beyond the Trump administration ... It is not Iran but instead another state [Israel] that has introduced nuclear weapons into the region and keeps the Middle East from becoming a nuclear weapons-free zone. Destabilizing activities? In the region's biggest ongoing conflict in Syria, Iran, rather than trying to upset the status quo, has been trying to preserve it by backing the incumbent regime, which has been in power for decades. The Saudis and other Gulf Arabs have been most aggressive in stoking rebellion, in the course of which they have shown little worry about aiding extremists in the process.

Boney, who is anti-Trump, has no meaningful national security experience. She was also hired instead of several veterans who had applied for the position.

So why wasn't it detonated remotely? A live operative is far more useful than a dead suicide bomber.

Trump sheds crocodile tears for 22 claimed concert deaths of ‘young, beautiful innocent people’ by ‘evil losers'; lies in omission of ~6 million horrific deaths from preventable poverty since his election that make 1.5 Trump Towers of corpses

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

President Trump remarked yesterday of his prayers and condolences for 22 claimed deaths of “young, beautiful innocent people” by “evil losers.”

Trump lies in omission of the ~6 million deaths since his election of other young, beautiful innocent people in gruesome slow-motion from preventable poverty. We can calculate the physical volume of 6 million bodies. If we assume an average human dimension of 5 feet tall, width of 1 foot, and depth of .5 foot, this average of 2.5 cubic feet times 6 million total 15 million cubic feet. The dimensions of Trump Tower are a base 76 by 144 feet, and a height of 861 feet for volume of ~9.5 million square feet if we calculate as a rectangular prism.

This means the pile of human bodies killed by ongoing preventable poverty just since Trump's election is equal in size to over 1.5 Trump Towers.

This is also roughly equal to three new Trump Towers of dead bodies every year.

ANCESTRY.COM TAKES DNA OWNERSHIP RIGHTS FROM CUSTOMERS AND THEIR RELATIVES

[5/24/17] Don’t use the AncestryDNA testing service without actually reading the Ancestry.com Terms of Service and Privacy Policy. According to these legal contracts, you still own your DNA, but so does Ancestry.com.

The family history website Ancestry.com is selling a new DNA testing service called AncestryDNA. But the DNA and genetic data that Ancestry.com collects may be used against “you or a genetic relative.” According to its privacy policies, Ancestry.com takes ownership of your DNA forever. Your ownership of your DNA, on the other hand, is limited in years.

It seems obvious that customers agree to this arrangement, since all of them must “click here to agree” to these terms. But, how many people really read those contacts before clicking to agree? And how many relatives of Ancestry.com customers are also reading?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is utterly insane, and represents the most completely subverted testing, and subsequent use, of DNA out there.

Another terrorist attack means another deep state power grab

UK Home Secretary Amber Rudd confirmed that the suicide bomber who killed over twenty people in Manchester by exploding a nail bomb on Monday recently returned from Libya, where he learned how to make sophisticated explosives. GCHQ have significant ongoing operations in Libya alongside US counterparts, which include monitoring all communications across the nation in a bid to assist troops fighting against Da’esh. There is a shortage of human sources on the ground in Libya, so agencies that collect signals intelligence are given greater prominence in the region.

Do We Need a Special Prosecutor For criminal leaks?

Why do these officials become criminals, and why do the mainstream media protect them? -- Because this seedy bargain is the best way to advance their common interests. The media get the stolen goods to damage Trump. Anti-Trump officials get their egos massaged, their agendas advanced and their identities protected. This is the corrupt bargain the Beltway press has on offer. For the media, bringing down Trump is also good for business. TV ratings of anti-Trump media are soaring. The “failing New York Times” has seen a surge in circulation. The Pulitzers are beckoning. -- And bringing down a president is exhilarating. As Ben Bradlee reportedly said during the Iran-Contra scandal that was wounding President Reagan, “We haven’t had this much fun since Watergate.”

Salman Abedi Was Direct Result Of US-UK Overthrow Of Gaddafi

Here’s what the media and politicians don’t want you to know about the Manchester, UK, suicide attack: Salman Abedi, the 22 year old who killed nearly two dozen concert-goers in Manchester, UK, was the product of the US and UK overthrow of Gaddafi in Libya and “regime change” policy in Syria. He was a radicalized Libyan whose family fled Gaddafi’s secular Libya, and later he trained to be an armed “rebel” in Syria, fighting for the US and UK “regime change” policy toward the secular Assad government.

While Donald Trump boogied with Saudi princes, Iran was voting for openness and peace

What is there to say about Donald Trump’s maiden voyage to our great and glorious ally Saudi Arabia? The awkward white-guy shuffle was danced. Steve Bannon was bodily engulfed by Saudi royals. One of those orbs from “Where in Time is Carmen Sandiego?” was fondled. And…oh yeah, also an arms deal worth $110 billion was signed, as America reasserted its default blind eye towards Saudi empowerment of terrorism in Yemen, Syria, and beyond.

The Saudis are obsessed above all with their endless cold war versus Iran, and their main goal with Trump was to renew America as an accomplice to their side. While Trump was acquiescing to their cajolery, Iran was doing something the Saudis never have: holding a presidential election. And the message that emerged once the counting was done is clear: Iranians are ready for moderation, for openness, for their country’s relations with the West—locked in deep freeze since the Islamic Revolution in 1979—to at last begin to thaw.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Iran is moving forward,politically, socially and economically; Saudi Arabia is locked into the suffocating, sclerotic death-grip of a monarchy to whom the entire notion of free elections is a "terrorist" thought.

And yet with whom did President Trump throw the US's lot in with, in the Middle East?!?

Why, with Saudi Arabia, of course, the human rights record of which makes Attila the Hun look downright compassionate by comparison.

And now, the US government has armed it it to the teeth with weapons which will ultimately be used to both complete its genocide in Yemen, and ultimately, conduct a proxy war against Iran, which may well lead to war with Russia, as Russia has promised to defend it militarily, should it be attacked.

And Saudi King Salmon, a word please; the US government can turn from friend to frenemy to enemy on a dime.

Do you remember to what happened to the US's "former friend" in the region, Iraq's Saddam Hussein, when he was going to start accepting money other than the US dollar in payment for Iraq's oil?!?

He was accused of harboring "weapons of mass destruction", when he had none, his country got invaded and occupied, and he got assassinated.

I'm just saying.....

CIA director: 'We are back in the business of stealing secrets'

CIA Director Mike Pompeo made a blunt declaration Tuesday: "We are back in the business of stealing secrets.”

The remark from Pompeo, made to a small group of reporters on Tuesday, was a tacit jab at his predecessor. Former agency director John Brennan turned heads in March of last year when he told National Public Radio that the U.S. doesn’t “steal secrets.”

“We uncover. We discover. We reveal. We obtain. We elicit. We solicit -- all of that,” Brennan said at the time.

US Killed Record Number of Civilians in Past Month of ISIS Strikes: At Least 225 Civilians in the Past Month

The US is eager to brag about their record number of airstrikes in the ISIS war, with the rate of growth in the number of strikes launched limited only by their ability to get enough weapons to drop on people. Officially, the death toll has remained trivial, albeit increasingly non-credible.

NGOs keeping track of the number of civilians the US is killing show a different story, however, with the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights putting the death toll at 225 over the last month, which by their reckoning is the most civilians the US has killed in any one month span of the ISIS war.

That’s a conservative estimate too, even though it’s likely more than 10 times what the Pentagon will admit to. Indeed, Air Wars themselves counted 230 civilians killed in a single US strike in Mosul, and they too recognize that the civilian toll is continuing to rise precipitously

Webmaster's Commentary: 

To the Pentagon and the money junkies, the civilian death toll in these countries is absolutely meaningless; it's just "collateral damage" in the process of regime changing Damascus, and insuring that Iraq's oil is only sold to parties the US wants it sold to, and is sold for US dollars.

US Intelligence: Kurdish Independence Is Inevitable

“Kurdish independence is on a trajectory,” wherein it’s not a question of whether the Kurds will form an independent state, but a question of how soon, Defense Intelligence Agency Director Gen. Vincent Stewart told lawmakers on Tuesday.

"Once ISIS is defeated in Mosul, the greatest challenge to the Iraqi government is to reconcile the differences between the Shia-dominated government, the Sunnis out west, and the Kurds up north," he said.

The Kurdish ethnic group, with populations spanning Iraq, Iran, Turkey, Armenia and Syria, includes adherents to Islam, Christianity, Yarsanism, Yazidism, Alevism and Judaism, but a majority of Kurds are Sunni Muslim. There are an estimated 30 million Kurds, considered to be one of the largest stateless groups in the world.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

No, a Kurdish state is not an "inevitability"; it is to be their "reward" for their fighting in Syria against the Syrian troops, and will involve the balkanising of areas in both Syria, and Iraq, i.e., the US government carving up the Middle East to suit their own purposes.

And I have to wonder; did Syria's Bashar al Assad and Iraq's Fuad Masum get the memo yet, that their countries are going to be carved up to accommodate an independent Kurdistan?!?

And with regard to Syria, what is Russia prepared to do to prevent this?!?

Donald of Arabia: A Disgusting Spectacle

by Justin Raimondo, May 22, 2017

Has there been a more disgusting spectacle during the four months of this presidency than the sight of Donald Trump slobbering all over the barbarous Saudi monarch and his murderous family of petty princelings? It’s enough to make any normal American retch, especially when one remembers what Trump said about them during the election:

“Saudi Arabia and many of the countries that gave vast amounts of money to the Clinton Foundation want women as slaves and to kill gays. Hillary must return all money from such countries!”

And then there was this tweet:

“Tell Saudi Arabia and others that we want (demand!) free oil for the next ten years or we will not protect their private Boeing 747s. Pay up!”

Now Trump’s son in law, Jared Kushner, is calling up Lockheed-Martin to get a discount for the Saudis, personally brokering the biggest arms deal in US history. What a difference a presidency makes!

RUSSIAN JOURNALIST: WHY DOESN'T ISIS EVER ATTACK OR THREATEN ISRAEL? ASSAD: ISRAEL SUPPORTS ALL TERRORISTS IN THE REGION.

President Assad: Not only ISIS, of course, or Daesh, not only al-Nusra; anyone, any terrorist who holds a machine gun and started killing and destroying in Syria was supported by Israel, either indirectly through the logistical support on the frontier, or sometimes by direct intervention by Israel against Syria in different areas in Syria. Why? Because Israel is our enemy, because they occupy our lands, and they look at Syria as enemy of course, and for them they think if they undermine the position of Syria and make it weaker as a whole, as society, as army, as state, that will prevent Israel from moving toward the peace, and the price of the peace is to give back the Golan Heights to Syria. So, for them, Syria will be busy with another issue now, it would be busy to talk about the Golan or the peace process, or even to do anything to get back its land.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why am I not at all surprised at Al-Assad's assessment here?!?

How to avoid the email prank that tripped Mark Carney and Jes Staley

You don’t have to be a high-tech hacker to make mischief with the personal emails of some of the most powerful people in the world, as one prankster has revealed. The joker, who goes by the Twitter handle @SINON_REBORN managed to dupe the bosses of both Barclays and the Bank of England into thinking they were chatting with their respective chairmen.

Fortunately neither Jes Staley or Mark Carney revealed any particularly sensitive information and both came out with their reputations relatively intact. The former make himself look like a kiss-ass (‘You are a unique man, Mr [John] McFarlane,’ he wrote. ‘You came to my defense today with a courage not seen in many people. How do I thank you?’) while the Bank of England governor’s gravest error was implying one of his late predecessors was an alcoholic.

It’s all good fun. But what worked for a prankster could equally work for a criminal.

DID SEVERAL DEMOCRATIC IT STAFFERS UNDER INVESTIGATION JUST FLEE TO PAKISTAN?

First a little background. Politico reported the following back in March.

Two House Democrats this week fired technology staffers linked to an ongoing criminal investigation, more than a month after the couple in question was barred from House computer networks.

Rep. Gregory Meeks (D-N.Y.) confirmed to Politico that Hina Alvi’s last day as an IT support staffer in his office was Tuesday. Her husband, Imran Awan, was working for Rep. Marcia Fudge (D-Ohio) as of Tuesday evening, but a spokeswoman for Fudge said midday Wednesday that Awan was no longer an employee.

As of Wednesday, Awan was still working as a technology adviser for Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.), although he’s been blocked from accessing the House computer system since early February.

Alvi, Awan and three other House aides, including Abid Awan and Jamal Awan, relatives of Imran Awan, and Rao Abbas, are all linked to the criminal investigation being conducted by the U.S. Capitol Police.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This...could get interesting! :-)

Apparently, Democrats, as a class, have difficulty in vetting their IT professionals.

Key Democratic Officials Now Warning Base Not to Expect Evidence of Trump/Russia Collusion

FROM MSNBC POLITICS shows to town hall meetings across the country, the overarching issue for the Democratic Party’s base since Trump’s victory has been Russia, often suffocating attention for other issues. This fixation has persisted even though it has no chance to sink the Trump presidency unless it is proven that high levels of the Trump campaign actively colluded with the Kremlin to manipulate the outcome of the U.S. election — a claim for which absolutely no evidence has thus far been presented.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Rachel Maddow has has not only shot herself in the foot for buying into this Russophobia; she has also permanently destroyed any shred of credibility she once had with her viewers and listeners, which is the ultimate cost of spinning lies because your party lost the election.

And Ms. Maddow, a word, please.

Your favorite candidate in this last election, Hillary Clinton, has more personal and financial "baggage" than does Kim Kardashian on a photo shoot; she stole the nomination from Bernie Sanders, courtesy of the machinations of Debbie Wasserman Shultz; as a millionaire, was thoroughly and pathologically incapable of relating to her base; absolutely did not have the temperament to be President; and always reeked with the noxious odor of the "inevitability" of her candidacy leading to the White House.

The bottom line here, is that the DNC was very proud of itself for picking such a truly flawed candidate, expected that they could cram her down the throats of American voters, and cannot at all understand why she lost the election. I sincerely hope it does better next time.

And BTW, DNC, you have such a candidate for 2020 right in your site-lines, if she is not politically disposed of first for her pro-peace leanings; that lady is none other than Hawaiian Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard, for whom I have a great deal of respect.

But of course, the DNC considers her a "traitor" for having backed Bernie Sanders in the last election, and going on a privately funded trip to Syria to see what was really going on there, and her findings were absolutely NOT to the liking of those in the bowels of power in the Unhinged, Surveilled States of America.

The great American comedian Ron White has a wonderful phrase: "You can't fix stupid." And unfortunately, the DNC has been acting stupidly ever since the election, with these charges that Russia "fixed" the American election in Trump's favor, and this is going to come home to bite them, unless they take a very sang-foid look at what happened in last November, and choose to learn from their mistakes.

RON PAUL ON THE DRUG WAR: WILL THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION OD ON AUTHORITARIANISM?

Last week Attorney General Jeff Sessions ordered federal prosecutors in drug cases to seek the maximum penalty authorized by federal mandatory minimum sentencing laws. Sessions’ order represents a setback to the progress made toward restoring compassion and common sense to the sentencing process over the past few years. Sessions’ action also guarantees that many nonviolent drug law offenders will continue spending more time in prison than murderers.

Sessions’ support for mandatory minimums is no surprise, as he has a history of fanatical devotion to the drug war. Sessions’ pro-drug war stance is at odds with the reality of the drug war’s failure. Over forty years after President Nixon declared war on drugs, the government cannot even keep drugs out of prisons!

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Part of the problem with the sclerotic, slug-like US governmental system, is that it is pathologically incapable of learning, and incorporating, the successes of other countries in dealing with issues like drugs.

The country of Portugal has been exemplary in how they handled the issue of drugs. What they did was decriminalise a small amount of drugs for personal use, but pushed counseling. And the results of this policy have been extraordinary.

Portugal: what happened after their decriminalisation of drugs, from weed to heroin

But of course, the US government cannot learn from Portugal's success.

And why?!?

Drug money moves in mysterious ways, and I am absolutely certain, cartels have had their influence to keep drugs illegal, to keep the industry's profitability high.

High conviction rates for drug users increase the money that public, and private prisons get for housing them, with generally no rehabilitation, insuring that when they get back on the street, they will re-offend.

And banks love laundering drug money, because they know no one will go to jail for it.

UBS Rap Sheet

Gangster Bankers Too Big to Fail

Awash in cash,
drug cartels rely on big banks to launder profits

So Jeff Sessions has thrown his hat in with the drug cartels, the for profit prisons, and the big banks, by embracing this position, which was utterly predictable, given the man's history.

But the war on drugs has been an utter, brutal, failure in this country; Sessions hypocritically refuses to acknowledge this, and I have to wonder just how much of his personal, financial portfolio is invested in financial institutions which do this kind of money laundering, and in private prisons.

“ISIL crisis” plays right into Zionists hands

Rahm Emanuel, President Obama’s first Chief of Staff – who also served as Obama’s Israeli Mossad handler – famously said: “You never let a serious crisis go to waste. And what I mean by that it’s an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.”

Individuals, groups, whole industries, even nations sometimes take advantage of crises and catastrophes. Big bankers, for example, love war because it forces governments to borrow vast sums of money at compound interest. Arms manufacturers also make huge profits. And the big government always gets bigger during wartime as it confiscates people’s wealth and scales back their rights.

THE MANCHESTER ATTACK - A BLOWBACK FROM BRITAIN'S TERROR SUPPORT IN LIBYA, SYRIA AND BEYOND

It was eastern Libya from where in March 2011 a tribal insurrection to overthrow the Libyan government was initiated. Weapons were flown in from Qatar and handed out to Jihadists. British special forces were on the ground to help the takfiris of the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG) in their attacks towards the Libyan capital in western Libya. The leader of the eastern front was Abdelhakim Belhadj, a long time al-Qaeda member, After Ghaddafi was overthrown with British help al-Qaeda's flag went up over the court house of the eastern Libyan city of Benghazi.

The Islamic State, a splinter part of al-Qaeda, has claimed responsibility for the attack in Manchester. The LIFG was aligned with al-Qaeda.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That the governments of the US and UK believe, as a general article of geopolitical faith, that the invasions; occupations; and expropriations of the resources of other countries, to which they, and their corporate minions, have utterly no moral right, will not ultimately result in horrific actions like this bombing, demonstrates that they are indulging in "magical thinking".

This form of "magical thinking", in the minds of those in the bowels of power in the "deep state" of both the US and UK governments, means that they believe there will be utterly no consequences for these horrific wars for resources upon which both countries have staked their economic futures.

And you have to understand that, because of the way those in power think, when these barbaric acts happen, against totally innocent civilians, it is simply the cost of doing business; people...are irrelevant, and the US/UK Deep States control what is going on in these countries, and what their people want, peace and prosperity, doesn't matter at all.

The "price" of acts like these, is perfectly acceptable to the leadership in both countries, if the acts are not, in fact, false flags, engineered to persuade citizens to give up what little liberties they have left, and surrender them to the surveillance state to make sure they are "safe".

But I would like to politely point out that all the surveillance in the UK did not prevent this horrific bombing; food for thought for my British cousins.

Money...is the only thing that matters to them.

Nothing Runs You Like a Deere. . . (Psst — You don’t own your tractor)

We are allowed to use the land as the sovereign sees fit – and not otherwise. If we use it in ways forbidden, the king – whoops, Uncle – will punish us. He can also just take it from us via another noxious doctrine – that of eminent domain. -- But until recently, we at least owned our incidentals – the small-potatoes stuff, like the clothes on our backs. Our cars. Our tractors, certainly. -- Not anymore.
