Four Multinational Battlegroups in Baltic States 'Fully Operational' - NATO

NATO's four multinational battlegroups in Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland are fully operational and represent a "defensive and proportionate deterrent force," the alliance said in a statement on Monday.
MOSCOW (Sputnik) — It was stated that establishment of these multinational troops was a part of the alliance's policy to boost its military presence in Eastern Europe, adopted at the 2016 Warsaw Summit.

"NATO’s four multinational battlegroups in Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland are now fully operational. This milestone comes after the Canadian-led battlegroup based at Camp Adazi in Latvia became the fourth battlegroup to complete its Certification Exercise," the press release read.

According to the statement, the battlegroups in Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia and Poland are led by Canada, Germany, the United Kingdom and the United States respectively.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Just from where, precisely, does NATO believe that such an "attack" would come from, Russia?!?

Russia's Putin is many things; but one of them is not stupid.

He is a master chess player, who is a zillion moves ahead of NATO right now.

Whatever he wanted to bring to bear, in response and retaliation to those sanctions placed against Russia and the EU would not be military; they would be economic, and asymmetric.

Bombing Drills After N. Korea's Missile Launch

The South Korean Air Force carried out the shelling drills with the use of the US Mark 84 general-purpose bombs after North Korea's ballistic missile launch, local media reported Tuesday.

Yonhap news agency reported that during the exercise, four F-15 K Slam Eagle fighter jets had dropped eight Mark 84 bombs, each weighing about a ton.
The drills took place at the eastern province of Gangwon, the agency added.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It feels as though a war against North Korea is imminent; it is not a question of if, but when.

Mainstream Media Manufactures ‘Scandal’ Over Nonexistent Trump Moscow Hotel

A new Washington Post story has revealed US President Donald Trump’s efforts to build a hotel in Moscow in 2015, as the Post continues its campaign to prove a connection between Trump and the Russian leadership.
The only issue with their narrative is that Trump never went to Moscow as part of the proceedings, and was never able to secure the permits needed to build his hotel.

Brian Becker, host of Sputnik Radio's Loud & Clear, was joined by former CIA whistleblower and senior investigator for the Senate Foreign Relations Committee John Kiriakou.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

To the Washington Compost, a word, please; there's no "there" there in this alleged accusation.

Continuing down this path is only going to thoroughly demolish what little credibility you may have with your readers, until they ignore you completely, when they want the truth.

FREEDOM FOR THE SPEECH WE HATE: THE LEGAL INS AND OUTS OF THE RIGHT TO PROTEST

“If there is any principle of the Constitution that more imperatively calls for attachment than any other, it is the principle of free thought — not free thought for those who agree with us but freedom for the thought that we hate.”— Supreme Court Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes

There was a time in this country, back when the British were running things, that if you spoke your mind and it ticked off the wrong people, you’d soon find yourself in jail for offending the king.

Reacting to this injustice, when it was time to write the Constitution, America’s founders argued for a Bill of Rights, of which the First Amendment protects the right to free speech. James Madison, the father of the Constitution, was very clear about the fact that he wrote the First Amendment to protect the minority against the majority.

What Madison meant by minority is “offensive speech.”

HOW THE CIA MADE GOOGLE

There is little new in this story. The 9/11 atrocity was the first of many terrorist attacks, each succeeded by the dramatic extension of draconian state powers at the expense of civil liberties, backed up with the projection of military force in regions identified as hotspots harbouring terrorists. Yet there is little indication that this tried and tested formula has done anything to reduce the danger. If anything, we appear to be locked into a deepening cycle of violence with no clear end in sight.

AFGHANISTAN: AMERICA'S TRILLION DOLLAR WAR

16 years since the Bush administration launched its military intervention in Afghanistan, President Trump has announced his intention to increase the U.S. military presence in the country. As Statista's Niall McCarthy notes, there are approximately 8,400 U.S. troops on the ground in Afghanistan and reinforcements could start arriving within days. Trump's new strategy is set to extend the longest war in U.S. history and add even further to its already staggering cost.

Website "The Balance" has been keeping track of Afghanistan's economic impact and the conflict has now cost the U.S. at least $1.07 trillion since 2001.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF the Taliban could evolve from a paramilitary organisation into a political one, and engage with the standing government in Kabul, that would, perhaps, be a hopeful direction; I am, however, not holding my breath quite yet, that it is actually possible right now.

HOW THE DEEP STATE TIES DOWN TRUMP

President Trump has had his foreign policy hands and feet tied by the Russia (and Iran) Sanctions Act.

He now has been rendered “helpless”: in respect to détente with Russia — gulliverized, spitefully, by his own party, working with the Democrats, to empty Trump’s constitutional prerogatives in foreign policy – and to seize them for Congress.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I must offer a caveat that I hope and pray that I am dead wrong in the following scenarios.

However, that being said, just in case you were not aware, there has been a soft coup in the Unhinged, Surveilled States of America, and the junta now running the show are Mc Masters, Mattis, and Kelly, all former military.

Look for massive increases in wars, and the US military's commitment to them (as we are now observing in Afghanistan, with the allegedly "new serge"); against Iran; (Israel's favorite whipping post in the Middle East); more war crimes in Yemen, courtesy of collusion with the Saudis there; and against North Korea, China; and Russia.

These wars, in the larger scheme of things , will be waged to prevent the further ascendancy of the Yuan and the Ruble in international currency markets; control of rare earth elements necessary for manufacturing processes; control the oil pipelines, and insure that the oil is only sold to countries which are western-centric, and only for the US dollar.

Look for a return to the draft in this country, coming for both our young men as well as our young women; and if there is much more rioting in the streets, look for a suspension of the Constitution and Bill of Rights, and the imposition of martial law.

I sincerely wish I could see a trajectory totally different from that which I have just described; but looking at the destruction and crumbling of US infrastructure, which is very much evidenced in the horrific damage caused by Harvey in Texas and Louisiana; the grinding into poverty of what used to be the American Middle Class through offshoring and outsourcing; the fragility of our financial system, coupled with strangling Federal debt, I just cannot see it right now.

The only suggestions I can offer at this point are simple, and common-sense.

Make certain you have long-term, storable food, potable water, and extra medications for yourselves, and your pets. Have a plan to meet with family, and bug out, if this is necessary.

If you have kids in school, find out what the school's policy is on releasing a child to their parents at a time which is not the regular dismissal time. IF there is a national crisis of some kind, some schools may well be locked down.

Get personal protection for yourselves and your loved ones with which you feel comfortable; because when the excrement hits the ventilation system, looters will be out in force to see what they can steal from you, again as witnessed by the flooding, and subsequent looting, in Huston over the last several days.

FORMER UTAH CONGRESSMAN SAYS WASSERMAN SCHULTZ’S “IT CONSULTANT” SCANDAL GOES WELL BEYOND BANK FRAUD (VIDEO)

Fox News’ Sunday Morning Futures host Maria Bartiromo had former Utah representative Jason Chaffetz on her show to discuss several issues including the arrest of former DNC char, Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s “IT consultant” Imran Awan.

Chaffetz made the stunning claim that federal agents were watching Imran Awan for months before his arrest, which means that this scandal is much bigger and deeper than the bank fraud charges for which Awan is currently charged with.

The Duran reported…

Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s IT specialist could very well bring down the entire fake news Russia story that Hillary Clinton and her campaign staff put together in the run up to their election defeat to Donald Trump.

This would explain why this Pakistani “hacker”, who is now under arrest for bank fraud charges while attempting to flee the United States, has been curiously blessed with high powered Clinton attorneys.

The rapidly growing scandal is seeing zero airtime on mainstream media.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Think: coverup so huge that it could take down the entire mechanism of the United States government with it.

Internal CIA Memos Expose Media As Agency's "Principal Villains", Urges "Intervention In Journalism Schools"

A series of 1984 memos from the CIA Inspector General’s (IG) office reveals some alarming views on the press and how to deal with them. Among other things, the memo shows that 33 years before the Agency declared WikiLeaks a hostile non-state intelligence service, they were viewing the general press in the same terms.

The SECRET memo began by endorsing the proposals that Page had laid out in her paper. Specifically praised among her proposed initiative was new legislation, a special FBI unit, and a special prosecutor. While it was obviously hoped that this would help enforce the law, the member of the IG staff also hoped that they would create a chilling effect. The sole criticism for Page’s paper was that it lacked a strategy for dealing with the media, who were the “principal villains” in all of this.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is chillingly interesting, and ironic, that these memos to attempt to silence the press happened in 1984.

Journalist Interrogated, Fired For Story Linking CIA And Syria Weapons Flights

A months-long investigation which tracked and exposed a massive covert weapons shipment network to terror groups in Syria via diplomatic flights originating in the Caucuses and Eastern Europe under the watch of the CIA and other intelligence agencies has resulted in the interrogation and firing of the Bulgarian journalist who first broke the story. This comes as the original report is finally breaking into mainstream international coverage.

Investigative reporter Dilyana Gaytandzhieva authored a bombshell report for Trud Newspaper, based in Sofia, Bulgaria, which found that an Azerbaijan state airline company was regularly transporting tons of weaponry to Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates (UAE), and Turkey under diplomatic cover as part of the CIA covert program to supply anti-Assad fighters in Syria. Those weapons, Gaytandzhieva found, ended up in the hands of ISIS and al-Qaeda terrorists in Iraq and Syria.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Getting fired for telling the truth?!?

Welcome to our world, Ms. Gaytandzhieva!!

Bay Area TV Anchor: "I Experienced Hate First Hand Today In Berkeley" From Antifa

After the media lashed out at right-wing extremists in the aftermath of the tragic violence in Charlottesville, the tide now appears to be turning against the all-black-clad "Antifa."

"My wife told me I'm going to get crucified by posting this. I told her I didn't care. This is what happened. This is what I saw. This is what I experienced. This is the truth. Period.

If people dont want to hear the truth thats not my problem. I have no agenda. Im just saying that this is what happened to me today, think about it. And make your own decision."
And judging by the 2800 comments and 10s of 1000s of 'shares', Somerville's report (below) struck more than a chord...

I experienced hate first hand today... It came from these people dressed in all black at a protest in Berkeley.

Ironically they were all chanting about NO hate.

Some had shields and gloves. Some had helmets. Some had gas masks.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Antifa must be confronted and labeled for what it is; a terrorist organisation, held together with weapons and hate, and attempting to discourage civilised conversations between brother and sister Americans on core issues which really affect all of us.

The Structure of Power in American Society: A Military Junta is Now Ruling the United States

On election day I noted that only the military had supported The Not-Hillary President. The corporate and executive corners of the triangle had pushed for Hillary Clinton and continued to do so even after Trump had won. (Only recently did the “collusion with Russia” nonsense suddenly die down.) I wrote:

The military will demand its due beyond the three generals now in Trump’s cabinet.

That turned out to be right. A military junta is now ruling the United States:

Countdown to War on Venezuela – Step II: Trump Imposes More Sanctions

The White House statement calls Maduro a “dictator” and his Presidency “illegitimate”. Both descriptions are laughable. Maduro was elected in free and fair elections. The former U.S. president Jimmy Carter called the election system in Venezuela the best in the world. The new sanctions will likely increase the support for the current government.

The White House hinted at further economic measures:

In a call to brief reporters on the measures, the [senior Trump] official said the United States has significant influence over Venezuela’s economy but does not want to wield it in an irresponsible manner that could further burden the already-struggling Venezuelan people.

Venezuela will now have some troubling times. But unless the U.S. launches an outright military attack on the country -by proxy of its neighbors, through mercenaries or by itself- the country will easily survive the unjust onslaught.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is the kind of job for which President Trump would most likely sign off on the use of hired assassins, like Erik Prince's Academi.

US Troop deployment is stretched so thinly, that I would not imagine him placing US military resources there.

As US Empire Fails, Trump Enters a Quagmire

A quagmire is defined as a complex or unpleasant position that is difficult to escape. President Trump’s recently announced war plans in Afghanistan maintain that quagmire. They come at a time when US Empire is failing and its leadership in the world is weakening. The US will learn what other empires have learned, “Afghanistan is the graveyard of empires.”

During the presidential campaign, some became convinced that Trump would not be an interventionist president. His tweets about Afghanistan were one of the reasons. In January of 2013, he tweeted,

“Let’s get out of Afghanistan. Our troops are being killed by the Afghanis we train and we waste billions there. Nonsense! Rebuild the USA.”

Now, we see a president who carries on the interventionist tradition of US Empire.

Putin and Netanyahu: The World’s Most Powerful President Meets the World’s Most Powerful Liar

There is no doubt that Vladimir Putin is the world’s most powerful President. By comparison, while China’s Xi Jinping is highly powerful and intelligent, China’s leadership retains a collective element while in Russia, Vladimir Putin maintains an unwritten but obvious veto power over all major decisions.

By the same extrapolation it is abundantly clear that Benjamin Netanyahu, the Israeli leader is the world’s most powerful liar. His power comes from the fact that he is in charge of the highest portion of weapons of mass destruction in the Middle East, including nuclear weapons.

His dishonesty is immediately revealed by his statements about Iran. When speaking in front of the Russian President, Netanyahu said,

“…where the defeated Islamic State (Daesh) group vanishes, Iran is stepping in”.

This statement is disingenuous on many levels. First of all, Netanyahu stated to Putin that he felt that Iran is a danger and secondly, that this danger is tantamount to that of Daesh.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These are dangerous times for Israel's Prime Minister; caught in a corruption probe at home, Corruption and bribery: Netanyahu Chief of Staff Revelations and disdained by heads of state abroad, he has become geopolitically cornered, and wounded; and no one can be more vicious than a cornered, wounded politician.

Several days ago, Prime Minister Netanyahu made the following statement:

IDF will stop Iranian threat in Syria, declares Israeli defense minister

The article then goes on to say:

"Source: IDF will stop Iranian threat in Syria, declares Israeli defense minister

Israel will do what it takes to prevent an Iranian threat on its northern border, Liberman declared."

"Israel will not stand by while Iran advances in Syria and establishes itself militarily on Israel’s northern border, Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman stated."

So is the Israeli government seriously looking at attacking Syria, using the excuse/justification that the presence of Iranian forces is just too large to tolerate?!?

Were I a betting woman, I would not bet against Netanyahu doing something like this, in order to deflect attention from his upcoming corruption trial.

And if that happens, what wil Russia do at that point?!?

I seriously hope that when Putin and Netanyahu met last week to discuss this, Russia issued some red lines here regarding Syria, in terms of what absolutely cannot be tolerated, in terms of an Israeli military response.

Also, if there is an American military component to Israel's plans for Syria, that could well mean war against Russia and Iran over this country.

Trump expected to lift ban on military gear to local police forces

The Trump administration Monday lifted a controversial ban on the transfer of some surplus military equipment to police departments whose battlefield-style response to rioting in a St. Louis suburb three years ago prompted a halt to the program.

The new plan takes effect immediately and fully rolls back an Obama administration executive order that blocked armored vehicles, large-caliber weapons, ammunition and other heavy equipment from being re-purposed from foreign battlefields to America's streets.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who led the campaign for the program's reinstatement, outlined the President Trump's new executive order Monday in an address at the annual meeting of the Fraternal Order of Police, the nation's largest police union.

NORTH KOREA KEEPS SAYING IT MIGHT GIVE UP ITS NUCLEAR WEAPONS — BUT MOST NEWS OUTLETS WON’T TELL YOU THAT

THE CURRENT PHASE of the decades-long U.S.-North Korea standoff began this past July 4, when North Korea launched its first genuine intercontinental ballistic missile. In a statement, North Korea’s dictator Kim Jong-un called it “a gift for the American bastards.”

Meanwhile, North Korea explained that it was examining its options “for making an enveloping fire at the areas around Guam,” a U.S. territory. Kim later walked this peculiar provocation back, at least for the moment.

But here’s what you don’t know, unless you’re an obsessive North Korea-watcher:

Also starting on July 4, North Korea has been saying over and over again that it might put its nuclear weapons and missiles on the negotiating table if the United States would end its own threatening posture.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There was a South American Cardinal (who got assassinated) who made the powerful claim that Americans were among the most lied-to people on earth; unfortunately, the guy was absolutely right, in his assessment here.

There are many, in the US deep-state, bowels of power, in the Unhinged, Surveilled States of America, who want see such a war go forward, no matter how many millions of North and South Koreans die in the process.

This would be an invitation to a total catastrophe, should China join the fight on North Korea's side, because at this point in its history, the US military doesn't have the weaponry, the troop strength, the manufacturing, or the money to insure a positive outcome to a conventional war against China.

The logical thing to do here, is to get North Korean, South Korean, US, and Chinese diplomats, working together, to craft a true peace accord for North Korea, guaranteeing unrestricted, unsanctioned trade, with the proviso that North Korea would stop its nuclear weapons program as the trade off.

But as I said earlier; that...would be logical.

Pakistan FM: Afghan Troops Sell US Arms to Taliban

While US officials continue to blame the Pakistani government for the enduring Taliban opposition to their Afghan occupation, Pakistan has been increasingly firing back regarding US missteps, and the impact those have had on the Pakistani side of the border.

So while US officials argue that the Pakistani government is providing “safe haven” for the Taliban, Pakistani Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif today noted that throughout the 16-year US war, Afghan soldiers have been routinely selling US-provided arms to the Taliban.

This has been a recurring problem in the Afghan War, as the Taliban really are awash in US arms, both a product of sales from corrupt Afghan soldiers, and of Taliban looting of Afghan police checkpoints and making off with entire armories.

US Raid Killed Civilians, Not Militants: Somalia Army Chief

A Friday morning raid by US and Somali troops in Barire village left at least 10 civilians dead, including three children. This incident was initially reported by the deputy governor of the region, and confirmed over the weekend by Somalia’s Army Chief.

Army Chief Ahmed Jimale Gedi told reporters he was “shocked” by the incident, and attributed it to distrust on both sides. The Somali government had formally dismissed the report Friday, claiming everyone slain was al-Shabaab militants.

The government’s refusal to admit what happened is an ongoing problem, with the provincial deputy governor confirming that the families have placed the bodies of the slain in storage, and are refusing to bury them until the national government admits what happened and agrees to pay compensation.

I would like to politely remind those in the bowels of power in DC, that the killing of innocent non-combatants, including children is a war crime.

Trump expected to lift ban on military gear to local police forces

The Trump administration is preparing to lift a controversial ban on the transfer of some surplus military equipment to police departments whose battlefield-style response to rioting in a St. Louis suburb three years ago prompted a halt to the program.

The new plan, outlined in documents obtained by USA TODAY, would roll back an Obama administration executive order that blocked armored vehicles, large-caliber weapons, ammunition and other heavy equipment from being re-purposed from foreign battlefields to America's streets.

On Monday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions is scheduled to address the annual meeting of the Fraternal Order of Police, the nation's largest police union, and he may outline the program changes there.

Administration officials did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In looking at the lifting of this military weapons ban, it is very interesting to speculate about what the White House, Pentagon, and national police are expecting to happen in the near term in this country.

Frankly, I smell panic in the air, due to the potential of things collapsing economically in this country, and what that might cause desperate citizens to do.

The explanations imposed on us by the ruling class are themselves conspiracy theories. Moreover, they are conspiracy theories designed to hide the real conspiracy that our rulers are operating.

One aspect many people can agree on, however, is the fact that doctors are overprescribing these dangerous drugs, spurring addictions that can eventually send patients to the street to get their next high once their prescription runs out.

Why are so many doctors prescribing these pills despite the dangers? The answer is simple: money. A study out of the Boston Medical Center’s Grayken Center for Addiction Medicine that was published in the American Journal of Public Health revealed that one out of every 12 American doctors has received at least one payment from an opioid pharmaceutical company. It was the first national, wide-scale study that focused specifically on opioid-related industry payments.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I had firsthand experience with this kind of practice.

A number of years ago, I had horrific, unexplained joint pain, that made simple walking, or playing my keyboard, completely impossible.

The pain could best be described as that of walking over broken glass, but the broken glass was not on the outside, but the inside of my hands and feet.

The podiatrists who were part of my HMO prescribed a drug for my pain. But this never actually worked all that well, and the pain persisted. When I finally went to my orthopedist, who had ex-rays taken, and said that he could find no physical basis for my pain, I remember coming home in tears, and saying to Mike "How do I pencil in the time to be a hypochondriac, please?!?"

Mike, being the wonderful husband he is, started checking on the net for what on earth was the culprit for my pain, and he - unlike my medical team- found the root core of the problem; I am violently allergic to formaldehyde precursors, which, in the US, are allowed to be put into a myriad of products, because it's a cheap preservative, and, theoretically only involves the outside of your body, but should not affect the interior. So we went around the house, looking at products, like scented soaps, and low-end cosmetics, with the offending chemicals, and threw them all out.

The next morning, it was like a switch had been thrown; I could walk, and play my keyboard absolutely without pain; it felt like a miracle had happened, but not one I could attribute to my physicians.

And the one test, that could have prevented this half-decade of agony... was somehow never ordered for me, and that was a test for chemical sensitivity.

I later learned that the drug company making the (alleged) pain killer I was taking was compensating physicians who prescribed this drug; and about 5 months after that, the podiatrists who I had been seeing were no longer on the website roster of my HMO.

So now, if I need to see a physician, and there is a prescription ordered, I have absolutely no shame in looking them straight in the eye, and asking them if they get compensated for proscribing the drug they have ordered for me, and letting them know I understand that the practice is quite common, for Big Pharma.

Clients of medical practitioners should have the right to know, and the absolute right to request a change in medication, if the medication prescribed (and potentially for which your doctors were financially compensated) absolutely doesn't work for them.!!

Congress Quietly Passed A Bill Allowing Warrantless Searches of Homes - Only 1% Opposed It

A bill that will allow homes to be searched without a warrant was passed with overwhelming support by the United States Congress, and signed into law by President Trump—and it happened with no media coverage and very little fanfare.

IRS REHIRES HUNDREDS OF EMPLOYEES FIRED FOR FRAUD, THEFT, ABUSING TAXPAYER DATA

The Inspector General for Tax Administration has discovered that under Commissioner John Koskinen, the Internal Revenue Service re-hired 212 employees it had previously fired for offenses including tax evasion, theft, and abuse of taxpayer data.

The title of the report makes it clear that the IRS “continues to rehire former employees with conduct and performance issues.” The inspection was requested by a U.S. Senator, who is not named in the report, although Senator Richard Burr (R-NC) introduced legislation to block the agency from rehiring such employees shortly after the report was released.

I hate the tragic error

That flows from false-flag terror

You might fool millions, but you won’t fool me.

On air we see and hear it

The mindless martial spirit

We’ve almost forgotten how real life should be.

So let experience school us

Next time you try to fool us

You’ll meet resistance from millions like me

Damore's Revenge: Google Faces Growing Legal Threats As Other Googlers Come Forward

James Damore gained instant fame earlier this month when he was fired for "un-Googly conduct" after publishing a paper on an employee chat board suggesting that men may be better equipped biologically for engineering jobs than women. Apparently science is embraced by the Left when discussing climate change but not so much when it's used to suggest that anatomy might just be coded in a person's DNA rather than being a personal choice that each millennial can make, and change, on a whim.

But, according to a new note from Wired Magazine, Damore's firing for discussing an 'un-Googly" political position might not be just an isolated event. As Damore's attorney and prominent San Francisco Republican Harmeet Dhillon points out, several other Googlers have come forward claiming that they too were discriminated against for challenging Google’s liberal political orthodoxy.

Saudi Arabia and Israel Might 'Directly Intervene' in Syrian Conflict

Sputnik Radio discussed this statement with Israel Shamir, a Russian-Israeli journalist and Middle East expert, who said that the Russian Defense Minister could be a "little bit overoptimistic."

"There is a danger that some external forces would not agree with the settlement of the Syrian war. Those forces are Saudi Arabia and Israel," Shamir told Sputnik.

Once upon a time, Syria was a powerful state, he went on. However now it is in disarray, therefore Saudi Arabia and Israel are worried that this change on the ground could be to the advantage of Iran.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, that is how this is going to come down; the US and Israel taking chunks out of Syria,to be "awarded" to the Kurds for an independent Kurdistan, with certain provisions as to who actually controls Kurdish oil,and in what currencies for which it is sold.

Trump Attorney Sues Greenpeace Over Dakota Access Pipeline in $300 Million Racketeering Case

Energy Transfer Partners, owner of the Dakota Access pipeline, has filed a $300 million Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) lawsuit against Greenpeace and other environmental groups for their activism against the long-contested North Dakota-to-Illinois project.

In its 187-page complaint, Energy Transfer alleges that “putative not-for-profits and rogue eco-terrorist groups who employ patterns of criminal activity and campaigns of misinformation to target legitimate companies and industries with fabricated environmental claims and other purported misconduct” caused the company to lose “billions of dollars.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The protestors feared what would happen to this part of the planet if drilling began, and their worst fears were realised last May:

Dakota Access pipeline has first leak before it's fully operational

Dakota Access Pipeline has sprung 2 new leaks

What the creators of this lawsuit want to accomplish, is kill peaceful free speech and the right of assembly, protected under the First Amendment, outright.

US to Hand Raqqa Over to ISIS Affiliates After “Defeating” ISIS

US policymakers have recently announced plans to hand over control of the Syrian city of Raqqa to former Islamic State (ISIS)-affiliated officials, Newsweek would report.

In its article, “Syria: Arab Tribes Who Once Supported ISIS Turn to U.S. As Endgame Being In Raqqa,” Newsweek reports:

A top U.S. diplomat in the fight against the Islamic State militant group (ISIS) has praised recent talks with Syrian tribal leaders slated to play a large role in governing Raqqa once the jihadis are expelled.

But the plan to create a careful balance of local power on the ground in Raqqa that will likely see former ISIS-affiliated officials ultimately in charge could cause a split between the U.S. and its Kurdish allies.

What appears to be ill-conceived policy is in fact the United States providing direct military protection to the remnants of terrorist organizations operating in Syria it has supported, including fighters of the so-called “Islamic State.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

ARE YOU FLIPPING KIDDING ME?!?

This is the mechanism through which the US military will be staying in Raqqa, and other portions of Syria, for a long time to come.

But I must ask: have Syria's President Bashir Al-Assad and Russia's President, Vladimir Putin gotten the memo yet?!?

Because this US occupation in Syria could well lead to a war against Russia, within Syria and beyond, at any moment.

In Defense of Lee And Jackson

Published: Thursday, August 24, 2017

Ever since the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, took place, memorials and statues of the great men of the Confederacy--along with the flags of the Confederacy--are being vandalized or taken down by municipal governments.

History revisionists flooded America's public schools with Northern propaganda about the people who attempted to secede from the United States, characterizing them as racists, extremists, radicals, hatemongers, and traitors.

More American Troops to Afghanistan, To Keep the Chinese Out? Lithium and the Battle for Afghanistan’s Mineral Riches

The US military bases are there to assert US control over Afghanistan’s mineral wealth. According to Foreign Affairs, “there are more U.S. military forces deployed there [Afghanistan] than to any other active combat zone”, the official mandate of which is “to go after” the Taliban, Al Qaeda and ISIS as part of the “Global war on Terrorism”.

Why so many military bases? Why the additional forces sent in by Trump?

The unspoken objective of US military presence in Afghanistan is to keep the Chinese out, i.e hinder China from establishing trade and investments relations with Afghanistan.

More generally, the establishment of military bases in Afghanistan on China’s Western border is part of a broader process of military encirclement of the People’s Republic of China.–i.e naval deployments in the South China sea, military facilities in Guam, South Korea, Okinawa, Jeju Island, etc. (see 2011 map below)

NATO says Russia should be transparent about its military drills

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said on Friday the alliance would closely watch Russian military exercises in western Russia and Belarus next month, urging Moscow to be transparent about the drills.

The maneuvers, the largest in years, with tanks, naval and air units operating in and around the Baltic and North Sea, have raised NATO’s concern that the official number of troops participating might be understated.

“We are going to be watching very closely the course of these exercises,” Stoltenberg told reporters after meeting Polish Prime Minister Beata Szydlo on a visit to check on the deployment of the U.S.-led alliance’s forces in the country’s east.

“All countries have the right to exercises of their armed forces, but the countries should also respect the obligation to be transparent.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Were I NATO'S Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg, I would not be speaking of "Russian Transparency" in these drills, but rather on the issue of mutual cooperation in areas of mutual interest.

Talking, then acting together, in accord, on these areas, will do far better to ratchet down tensions between Europe and Russia than an accusatory statement about the lack of transparency (whatever the heck that is) in Russia's military drills.

China says nothing will stop its long-range air force drills

No amount of interference or shadowing of its aircraft will stop the Chinese air force from carrying out long-range drills, the defense ministry said, announcing another round of exercises of the type that have unnerved neighbouring Taiwan and Japan.

The air force carried out further long-range exercises on Thursday, the ministry said, without giving details of where they happened. Japan said it was concerned about bombers flying close to its territory.

Such “normal” drills accord with international law and practices and are part of an “ordinary need” to raise combat abilities and strengthen the military, it added.

“No matter what obstructions are encountered, the Chinese air force will carry on as before; no matter who flies with us, the Chinese air force will fly a lot and as normal!” the ministry added, citing an air force spokesman.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Can one logically object to this, understanding that the US has been doing "freedom of Navigation" deployments in and around the South China Seas for some time now?!?

The short answer is, no!

I ASKED THE U.S. MILITARY FOR ITS LEAFLETS ABOUT JOSEPH KONY. IT SIDESTEPPED THE REQUEST, THEN BURNED THEM.

“JOSEPH KONY Est Mort,” reads a leaflet bearing the murderous Central African warlord’s visage and the message, in French, that he has died.

Over the last six years, the United States invested the better part of $1 billion to make that statement a reality. America sent military advisers, set up bases, gathered intelligence, and funded and equipped local proxies across the region in an effort to kill or capture Kony and destroy his Lord’s Resistance Army, a militia that has committed atrocities since the 1980s. The U.S. military even created that flier to tout Kony’s death and sent reams of them to a shadowy outpost in the Central African Republic where they sat, waiting for the day they could rain down from the sky. Now that leaflet — and that dream — have gone up in smoke.

Korea, Afghanistan, And The Never-Ending War Trap

While the US-backed 'Hunger Games' in South Korea plow on, a 'new strategy' for Afghanistan is really all about business. But China is already there... There are more parallels between an unfinished 1950s war in Northeast Asia and an ongoing 16-year-old war in the crossroads between Central and South Asia than meet the eye.

U.S. will not tolerate Venezuelan 'dictatorship': Haley

U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said on Friday that U.S. sanctions against Venezuela were a strong message to President Nicolas Maduro that the United States would not tolerate a “dictatorship” in that country.

Haley, speaking at United Nations headquarters in New York, said she had not been asked to meet at the UN with visiting Venezuelan foreign minister Jorge Arreaza.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What, precisely, does Ambassador Haley mean when she says that the US "... will not tolerate a dictatorship in Venezuela."?!?!?

Ambassador Haley, a word please; the US government has been very cosy with dictatorships it has helped install around the world, from that of the Shah of Iran to Pinochet in Argentina; and to Petro Poroshenko in Ukraine (an action over which some of the more aware career State Department staffers are experiencing "Buyer's Remorse", but I digress).

Hugo Chavez used Venezuela's great oil wealth for the good of Venezuelan citizens.

Economic policies of Hugo Chavez

You and your colleagues are very comfortable with dictators, just as long as they are western-centric, and to your liking, economically.

But what you and your colleagues are "lusting after in your collective hearts", is to insure Venezuela is controlled by a US centric puppet; give control of the Venezuelan oil fields to American or US-friendly foreign nationals; and insure that Venezuela's oil is only sold in US dollars.

I am certain that if you believe you can accomplish "regime change" in Caracas, you will do that, most probably militarily, no matter how many innocent Venezuelans get killed.

In terms of its ability to fight back, militarily, Venezuela may appear to be "the low hanging fruit" for regime change.

But Ambassador Haley, I must strongly caution you that the US government needs to review its recent military epic fails around the world to date, and spanning several administrations; the US wars against Iraq; Afghanistan; Somalia; and Libya were not the "poster child" wars successive administrations thought they were going to be.

IF the US government goes in with a decap strike against Maduro, it may not go terribly well, as the Venezuelan people will most probably not accept an outside military force as "liberators".

Just saying...

Israel’s Alarm over Syrian Debacle

But rather than making a wider war less likely, the upshot is to make it even more. Having bet on the wrong horse, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu now finds himself facing a nightmare scenario in which Iran takes advantage of Assad’s winning streak to extend its reach from Iraq and Syria into Lebanon beyond. It’s not just a question of political influence, but of the emergence of a powerful Iranian-led military bloc.

Eleven years after fighting a vicious 34-day war in southern Lebanon, Israel thus finds itself facing not only Hezbollah but the Syrian Arab Army, Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards, and Iraqi Shi‘ite militias – all backed by Russian military might – in a front extending across its entire northern border. All are battle-hardened after years of combat, better armed, better led, and more self-confident to boot. Israel finds itself confronting a new threat that is many times more powerful than Hezbollah (or Syria) alone.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is the "justification" Israeli politicians will make to the world for a pre-emptive strike against Syria.

And the proof to Israel's claim that Iran is building a missile factory in Syria's Baniyas? Most probably non-existent, unless someone from Tel Aviv can show the world incontrovertible, non-photo-shopped 2017 images of this alleged bomb manufacturing site.

Prime Minister Netanyahu, a word, please: you have used the "scaremonger/victim" card, as a characterisation of Israel, one too many times, so it has lost its luster for thinking people around the world.

And I would very politely remind those in the Bowels of Power in Tel Aviv that Iran hasn't started a war in over two hundred years.

IF, in fact, Iranian missiles are being manufactured at Baniyas, they will only be defensive in nature, to prevent a US/Israeli attack against it.

Please, what logical reason would Iran have to attack Israel?!? The short answer is, none!!

Iran's Majlis and senior government officials are many things; but they are not fools. They understand that any attack against Israel would bring the US into the fray immediately, and turn Iran into molten glass, should they dare to try it.

One of the things Netanyahu HATED about the P5+1 accord, was that it stopped its nuclear weapons program (and is still declared in compliance with that treaty by the IAEA very recently), which meant that the Americans had no reason to invade Iran, and regime change it.

Oh, yes: the Israeli government is very keen on regime change in Tehran; but explicitly wants all the costs in blood and money be borne by the Unhinged Surveilled States of Amerika.

IF Israel goes ahead with any bombing of Syria, it will entail a mighty military effort from the US as well, and most probably a nasty military response from Russia, which is protecting the Al-Asad government in Damascus.

One of the things the Israeli government loves to do to its own people, is to terrify them into believing, every second, that Israel is under near-immediate threat of attack from its Arab neighbors, when logic indicates that Israel, through generous financial and military assistance, is bristling with weapons and personnel who understand how to fight back, or initiate a strike, when commanded.

So I would suggest that the Arab nations surrounding Israel have every reason to be concerned about pre-emptive strikes against them, rather than the other way round. This threat of a strike against Syria is a perfect example of that.

Trump and Korea: I’m Also Scared

Meanwhile, Trump has backed himself into a corner over North Korea. His threats and bombast have not made the North’s leader Kim Jong-un stop threatening to launch nuclear-armed missiles at the US island of Guam, Hawaii, Japan and South Korea. That is, if the US and South Korea keep up their highly provocative annual military war games on North Korea’s borders that each year invoke North Korea’s fury.

Unless, of course, Trump, who managed to avoid Vietnam era military service because of a bump on his foot, decides to go nuclear. This would mean hitting North Korea with a score or more nuclear weapons, large and small, before the North could riposte. North Korea would be totally destroyed, and its 25 million people left dying, maimed or starving. Japan, the world’s third largest economy, would also be shattered.

US Dismisses UN Plea: Won’t Stop Bombing Civilians in Raqqa

The soaring civilian death toll form US airstrikes against the ISIS capital city of Raqqa has gotten so bad that yesterday, it actually fueled a statement from the UN requesting the US pause their airstrikes to allow more civilians to flee the city.

US officials are rejecting this call, however, with Special Envoy Brett McGurk insisting that the war against ISIS is going very well, and that the “number one thing that we have to do to” to help civilians in Raqqa is continue the war and defeat ISIS outright.

McGurk went on to say that President Trump is “focused like a laser destroying ISIS,” and that the war is going well, but that they will take the UN call to pause the strikes “under advisement.” It’s clear, however, they aren’t taking the call seriously.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This event very much reminds me of the statement by the Papal Legate at the siege of the Cathars at Montsegur, France.

When informed that women and children were with the men, taking refuge here, the Papal Legate's command was: "Kill them all; God will find his own!!"

Given this bloodlust for killing everyone still breathing in Raqqa, allegedly to take out ISIS, I am completely astonished that Special Envoy McGurk has not requested the use of several MOAB bombs against the city.

Because it has become painfully apparent that in US diplospeak, "helping people" now means "assassinating civilians".

US, Somali Troops Execute 10 Civilians, Including Children, in Village Raid

US and Somali troops attacked the farming village of Barire early Friday morning, capturing a group of ten civilians and summarily executing them one at a time. Locals brought the bodies, including three children, to the capital of Mogadishu to protest the incident.

Deputy Governor of Lower Shabelle Ali Nur Mohammed blamed the US forces, saying that they rounded up the farmers working in the fields, then “one by one” shot them, saying that all the slain were unarmed civilians.

US African Command confirmed that US troops were “supporting” the Somali operation, but offered no details. They confirmed being aware of reports of civilians being killed and promised an “assessment” of the matter.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Hey, particularly the murder of those children; wow, it was like shooting fish in a barrel!!" - Official Somali government souse.

Just when the hell, please, did I become a citizen of a country which assassinates children, then just throws a whitewash on the whole action, with complete cynical impunity?!?

ANGRY MARINE WHO DISCOVERED AWAN'S "SMASHED HARD DRIVES" BREAKS SILENCE, UNLOADS ON WASSERMAN SCHULTZ

Andre Taggart, the U.S. Marine who alerted the FBI when he moved into a house he rented from Imran Awan only to find a garage full of "smashed hard drives", has decided to reveal his identity in a stinging, at least for Debbie Wasserman Schultz, new interview with the Daily Caller.

Taggart, a black U.S. Marine who says he typically votes Democrat, is apparently fed up with Debbie Wasserman Schultz's Islamophobia smoke screen which he views as just a dishonest attempt to shield the Awans from their crimes. In his epic rant to the Daily Caller, Taggart says the whole thing just "pisses me off" and that he's "absolutely disgusted with everything going on in the country right now."

As we noted a few weeks ago, Taggart first discovered Awan's smashed hard drives after he rented a house in Lorton, Va. that belonged to them. Upon moving in, the Marine found a trove of abandoned computer equipment in the garage, much of which had been destroyed, and called the FBI to take a look.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Welcome to my world, Mr. Taggart; and you did a brave and noble thing by turning those smashed drives over to the FBI, and I hope and pray that some of the intel on them will reveal the insidious, drug-drenched money-junkie workings of the DNC and the Clinton Foundation.

NORTH KOREA RISKS ‘FIRE AND FURY’ WITH LAUNCH OF THREE ‘SHORT-RANGE’ MISSILES

In a move which can only be construed as calling President Trump’s bluff over his ‘fire and fury’ threat over further provocations, U.S. Pacific Command announced that North Korea has launched several ‘Short-Range’ ballistic missiles into the Sea of Japan today.

Earlier today, South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff reported that several ‘unidentified projectiles’ from area of Gitdaeryong in Gangwon Province at around 6:49 a.m. local time, flying over 250 Km (155 miles) towards the North East.

“Our military is closely monitoring for North Korean additional provocation and strengthened surveillance and security postures and maintaining readiness postures,” the South Korean release said.

Meanwhile, Japanese officials told Kyodo news service that the North had fired ‘a projectile’ into the sea between Japan and the Korean peninsula.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In light of the fact that no people or property appeared to have been harmed in the falling of these missiles, I think, at this moment, President Trump is going to show restraint; at least, that is what I would caution him to do right now, were I a "president whisperer".

MUGABE SAYS ZIMBABWE "WILL NOT PROSECUTE KILLERS OF WHITE FARMERS"

93-year-old Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe made it clear in an address this week that people who murdered white farmers during a government-sanctioned purge in the 2000s will never be prosecuted.

In 2000, Zimbabwe implemented a controversial land reform program that saw squatters invade and seize hundreds of white-owned farms around the country. As Newsweek details, the violent seizures resulted in the murder of several white farmers, with many more displaced, and close associates of Mugabe given large chunks of land.

And now, speaking at a rally in Harare, Mugabe confirmed this massacre will go unpunished, according to Zimbabwean news site NewsDay.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This was never a "land reform" program; it was a land grab program, and by any means necessary, including summary execution of the existing land owners.

And to the people of South Africa; apparently, if you are non-indigenous person owning agricultural land, you are next:

Sears Death Spiral Accelerates: Vendors Halt Shipments As Cost Of Default Insurance Soars

When we commented back in March on the unexpected "going concern" notice in Sears' 10-K which sent the stock crashing, we pointed out the immediate spin provided by Eddie Lampert's distressed retailer which promised that its comeback plan may help alleviate the concerns, “satisfying our estimated liquidity needs 12 months from the issuance of the financial statements", to which however we added the footnote that "the question is what happens when vendors start demanding cash on delivery as concerns about SHLD.'s liquidity concerns continue to grow.

Shortly after, we wrote "Sears Enters Death Spiral: Vendors Halt Shipments, Insurers Bail" in which we described that as Sears financial condition deteriorated, vendors were boosting their "defensive measures", such as reducing shipments and asking for better payment terms, to protect against the risk of nonpayment as the company warned about its finances.

Rome Is Burning... This Time It's By Refugees

Police in Rome evicted 100s of refugees that had occupied Piazza Independenza just one block from the country’s main train station.

The squatters were defiant so local police used water cannons and batons in the forceful eviction. As Reuters reports,

Some 100 refugees had occupied Piazza Independenza since Saturday, when most of about 800 squatters were evicted from an adjacent office building they had occupied for about five years.

Hung on the building was a sheet with writing reading “We are refugees, not terrorists” in Italian.

A small fire burned on the pavement and a sheet hanging from a first-floor window was set alight by squatters inside. Most of the squatters were Eritreans who had been granted asylum. Police said they had refused to accept lodging offered by the city.

More than 600,000 boat migrants have arrived in Italy from North Africa since 2014.

LA’s response to homeless encampments ‘isn’t working,’ councilman says

Amid rising homelessness and mounting outcry from residents and business owners, a Los Angeles city councilman said Wednesday he wants to take a hard look at the way the city responds to the increasing presence of encampments and recreational vehicles.

“What we have isn’t working,” Councilman Mitchell Englander said.

In recent months, the issue of homelessness has become inescapable, with residents encountering more homelessness in their neighborhoods, according to the councilman, who represents the northwest San Fernando Valley.

“There’s not a conversation I have — whether it’s fixing a street, trimming a tree, walking to school or going to a grocery store — where we don’t talk about homelessness,” he said.

Out of Los Angeles City Councilman Joe Buscaino’s office: “Ditto,” said spokesman Branimir Kvartuc.

“We’re very, very conscious of it,” Kvartuc said. “It’s a battle every day.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is a horrific image of America, going out to the world, that we do not have the means, or willingness, to deal with the problem.

I cannot imagine anyone saying to themselves, "Oh, I just want to be so financially stressed, after losing my job and my residence, because I couldn't pay the rent, that I sincerely want to homeless now."

I am no bleeding heart; I was very lucky to come from a family with true work ethics, and have learned to make what I'm good at into a profession.

Newsletter on UCCS: 'Veterans should be banned from four-year universities'

The university explained while this group is not affiliated with the college, they say it is free speech and the group can post what they want.

The article says veterans should be banned from UCCS and other four-year colleges. It also generalizes veterans and says they are unsympathetic to the LGBTQ community. The article says all veterans have far right-wing ideologies.

"They [the authors of the letter] try and talk about inclusion as a principle," said UCCS student Joe Hollmann. "Yet, they're excluding one of the most important members of society, those that are guarding our freedom to even talk about this."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

ARE YOU FLIPPING KIDDING ME?!?

This is just one of the most misconceived concepts in a long history of misconceived concepts; to deny an education to Veterans because of some assessment, created by magical thinking, they are all right wingers, so have no right to an education at this school?!?

Where is the logic, here?!? Has anyone actually come up with a standards and means test to determine what former military think, to make that determination?!? And please, aren't we all Americans, even if we think differently about political issues?!? And that to me, coupled with the First Amendment restrictions and educational restrictions someone at this school, or may have attended this school, want to force on their community.

NAFTA Is 23 Years Old – Here Are 20 Facts That Show How It Is Destroying The Economy

Back in the early 1990s, the North American Free Trade Agreement was one of the hottest political issues in the country. When he was running for president in 1992, Bill Clinton promised that NAFTA would result in an increase in the number of high quality jobs for Americans that it would reduce illegal immigration. Ross Perot warned that just the opposite would happen. He warned that if NAFTA was implemented there would be a “giant sucking sound” as thousands of businesses and millions of jobs left this country. Most Americans chose to believe Bill Clinton. Well, it is 20 years later and it turns out that Perot was right and Clinton was dead wrong. But now history is repeating itself, and most Americans don’t even realize that it is happening. As you will read about at the end of this article, Barack Obama has been negotiating a secret trade treaty that is being called “NAFTA on steroids”, and if Congress adopts it we could lose millions more good paying jobs.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Any trade deals which do not better the situation of workers in the US makes them worse for the American worker, and consequently, should not be ratified by the US Senate.

But we know what will happen here; corporations who support these alleged congressional representatives, will be come "The Congressional Whisperers", and insure that trade deals which compromise the American people, financially, will ultimately be ratified, because those deals support their corporations, no matter how horrific they may well be for We the People.

US Military Bio-labs in Ukraine, Production of Bio-weapons and “Disease Causing Agents”

Ukraine turned into the proving ground for the new generation of US biological weapons, European mass media report.

In 2015, American alternative media outlet InfoWars accused the Pentagon of developing new types of biological weapons in secret military laboratories in Ukraine. The facilities were constructed under the terms of the bilateral agreement signed between the Ministry of Health of Ukraine and the Department of Defense in 2012.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Just lovely; why are they not putting energy and effort into curing people, rather than killing them?!?

I have to wonder against whom these weapons are to be used; and that makes me very nervous.

Whistleblower Lawsuit Charges Illegal Retaliation, Dangerous Practices at CIA’s Elite Directorate of Operations

The Pars lawsuit claims that, in 2015, the CIA’s Chief of Base at a US military facility routinely required subordinates to risk their lives by passing through an area of hostile fire without any operational need to do so. The Chief of Base who did this, the lawsuit says, was an officer with “limited to no” previous experience operating in a conflict zone.

For reporting the misconduct to his superiors, the lawsuit says Pars was sent home in an act of unlawful retaliation, directed by the Chief of Station, the highest-ranking CIA official in the unnamed country which, given details in the complaint, appears to be Afghanistan. Since the alleged reprisal more than two years ago, the lawsuit says Pars, his career in shambles, has made dozens of unsuccessful attempts to get a new assignment. Meanwhile, there is no public record of any accountability for the Chief of Station or other CIA officials allegedly involved.

The CIA declined to comment.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is obviously completely insane, and should have been stopped by this lady's superiors; that fact that they didn't, yet set upon Pars, to "murder the messenger", rather than fix the problem.

This is an institutional problem for many American alphabet soup agencies, and needs to be fixed.
