BLACK WOMAN GETS PROBATION FOR KIDNAPPING WHITE MENTALLY ILL MAN TORTURED ON FACEBOOK LIVE

After nearly a year in Cook County Jail in Illinois, 19-year-old Brittany Covington was freed on four years of probation after a plea deal was reached Friday.

Covington, a black woman, had been charged with a hate crime and kidnapping in connection to the torture of a white mentally ill man. From December 31, 2016 to January 2, 2017, Covington and three other black defendants, including her older sister Tanishia Covington, Tesfaye Cooper and Jordan Hill, all held the mentally ill victim in the Covingtons’ apartment.

Brittany narrated multiple graphic Facebook Live videos showing the man being hit and kicked, having his clothes cut off with a knife, being forced to drink from a toilet, and being ordered to say, “I love black people.” He was also called a supporter of then-President-elect Donald Trump. Her probation bars her from contacting Cooper or Hill or using social media. The other three defendants’ plea deals are being negotiated.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation: this kind of horrific, morally inexcusable behaviour, has just been given a pass, and a blessing from the Illinois court.

In light of the reality that this kind of brutal behaviour has been "normalized" by this plea deal, were I a resident of that state right now , I would be moving out, just as fast as my car could (legally) take me; the Illinois judiciary has just added another component to the reality that living in this state can be very hazardous to one's health.

I would also be very clear in letting Governor Bruce Rauner understand as to why you were moving, and taking your tax base elsewhere.

PAUL CRAIG ROBERTS: AMERICA IS "WALKING INTO ARMAGEDDON"

The orchestrated hostility toward Russia, China, Iran, and North Korea protects the $1,000 billion annual budget of the military/security complex by convincing the American public that the US is threatened by enemies. It also keeps alive Democratic Party hopes that Trump can be removed from office, and it has prevented President Trump from normalizing relations with Russia. I have emphasized for some time that Washington’s gratuitous and aggressive actions against Russia and the constant barrage of false accusations against Russia and its government have convinced Russia that Washington is planning a military attack. There is nothing more reckless and irresponsible than to convince a nuclear superpower that you are preparing an attack on them.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A major war is coming, based on the reality that the Elites of this country, who despise true justice, and want the financial favors to come to "Just Us" (meaning them) have rigged the financial system to the point of near-collapse, so need a major war to attempt to distract most Americans from the coming financial debacle.

A magician would use the term "misdirection", but this industrial strenth codswallop, getting force-fed to the American people, courtesy of the corporate prestitutes and whorespondents, about the ongoing "threats" this country faces are, most generally, narratives to push the war agenda.

And if, in fact, the Occupied, Unhinged, Surveilled States of America lose this next war, the US government, and its lacadaisical attitude toward its weapons manufacturers, will be be squarely to blame.

The world has seen the sterling success of Russia's weaponry and tactics in Syria, and are beating a path to its door to acquire those weapons.

Unfortunately, the culture of US weapons manufacturers has been coddled by the US government and military, to the point where their CEOS think it is perfectly fine to deliver weapons that do not work; are obsolete by the time they are delivered and field tested; and are horrifically overpriced.

This has to change, and immediately, before the US ever regains its tactical advantage with its weaponry again; unfortunately, that is not going to happen before the next major regional, or world war, happens, and our military are, once more, going to be left in the lurch because of what has become "acceptible and standard" practice by the US govenment and military.

City of discord: How Trump’s decision on Jerusalem throws 70yrs of caution to the wind

***
(*Donald) Washington’s decision marks the first time since the UN-brokered partition of Palestine in 1947 that a president of the US, a member of the Middle East Quartet – a well-known foursome of world powers mediating in the peace process between Palestine and Israel – has departed from the established policy that the issue of recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital should be kept off the table.>>>

Always prepared? US army convoy sticks in mud in Poland, asks locals for help (VIDEOS)


RT: A US army convoy got stuck in the mud on a road in western Poland. Their colleagues who came to help then saw their own vehicle turning over, prompting the 'gallant' soldiers to eventually ask the locals for help.

The small US army convoy, consisting of what appears to be two heavy combat engineer support vehicles, experienced trouble on a road near the western Polish town of Lubin, when one of the trucks suddenly experienced problems with the brakes. The convoy pulled to the side of the road to examine the fault, only to find themselves stuck in a ditch.

It soon turned out that it was only the beginning of their troubles.>>>

UN Security Council Members Condemn Trump’s Jerusalem Move

US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley sees Friday’s emergency meeting on President Trump’s Jerusalem declaration as vindication of decades of US claims that the UN is inherently biased against Israel.

Yet while Israel was the topic, at least tangentially, the real focus of the meeting was on Trump himself, and what pretty much everyone else in the Security Council agreed was a reckless unilateral declaration that Jerusalem, a contested city under partial military occupation, is the capital of Israel.

Trump’s declaration has been roundly criticized worldwide, with Israel seemingly the only nation to endorse it.>>>

Woman Becomes ‘Engaged’ to Chandelier

33-year-old Amanda Liberty from Leeds, England, reportedly proposed to the chandelier on Valentine’s Day, however she will be “continuing an open relationship with the rest of her collection of 25 chandeliers,” according to Inside Edition.

“You can’t control who you fall in love with and things just went from there,” explained Liberty, who added that she saw her “fiancée” Lumiere on eBay last year.

Inside Edition reported, “The nearly 30-inch wide chandelier is an antique and had to be shipped over from Germany,” and, “Although Lumiere is the only chandelier that wears a ring,” Liberty “loves all the light fixtures in her collection.”

Facebook Censors Roy Moore Yearbook Forgery Bombshell, Politifact Says 'No Evidence' Inscription Was Tampered With

Nelson said in her initial statement with Allred that Moore wrote the entire inscription in her yearbook.

"He wrote in my yearbook as follows," Nelson said. "'To a sweeter and more beautiful girl I could not say Merry Christmas. Christmas 1977. Love Roy Moore, Olde Hickory House.' And he signed it 'Roy Moore D.A.'"

Officials said he has planned the shooting and released a post he had written on a gaming website the morning of the shooting at 6:51.

"If things go according to plan, today would be when I die.
I wait until the school buses are detected, then head on foot disguised as a student.

I go somewhere and gear up, then hold a class hostage and go ape-s**t, then blow my brains out.

Erik Prince Blasts Obama Administration for ‘Illegal’ Surveillance of Him

Obama’s National Security Council allegedly leaked information about former Navy SEAL and Blackwater CEO Erik Prince to the liberal press after they put him under “illegal” surveillance during a foreign trip, according to testimony Prince gave the House Intelligence Committee back in November.

The transcript, released Wednesday, indicates Prince believed that surveillance to be “illegal.” In response to a question from Rep. Tom Rooney (R-FL), Prince discussed his belief American intelligence agencies surveilled him while he spoke in a hotel bar in the Seychelles with Russian businessman Kirill Dmitriev in January of 2017.

The investigation, supposedly about Trump-Russia ties, later was used by the Washington Post in a piece about Trump ally Prince’s connections to Russia. The Post alleged he was trying to set up a “back channel” between Trump and Putin.
