Trump’s pick to head the CIA wants to collect your personal metadata—all of it

That headline isn’t an exaggeration. Mike Pompeo, the Kansas congressman and Donald Trump’s pick to head the CIA, who testified on Capitol Hill earlier today, wants the government to collect all metadata from everyone, regardless of whether they’re suspected of a crime or not.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF the CIA truly wanted to eliminate "terror", both domestically and internationally, all it has to do is to stop the US government from mucking about in other people's countries, expropriating resources to which it has utterly no moral right, then assuring that those resources are only sold for US dollars.

It's SORTED, folks, and it is just that easy!!

No, Congressman Pompeo, you don't have to thank me! :-)

But this massive rush to "Code Napoleon Law", where all individuals, now, are always considered guilty until proven innocent, stands in direct, and flagrant, contradiction to the Constitution and Bill of Rights, where just the converse is stated.

Unfortunately, Pompeo's problem, as evidenced by his love and lust for metadata collection, is that the really "bad buys" out there have already encrypted their communications to the point where the US government cryptographers cannot possibly keep up, and rest of them are not using telecommunications equipment at all to share information, and do not gather in places which can be physically surveilled.

This would be surveillance for surveillance's sake, on innocent Americans, and there will be a point where the US Federal government will find itself in "data overwhelm", a state where there is so much information that it becomes meaningless and irrelevant.

SOME ELECTION INTERFERENCE IS MORE EQUAL THAN OTHERS – HOW UKRAINE MEDDLED ON BEHALF OF CLINTON

A couple of days ago, Politico published a fascinating piece describing how factions associated with the current Ukrainian government apparently interfered in the U.S. election on behalf of Hillary Clinton. The findings seem pretty damning, and certainly warrant at least some conversation within the American media given the 24/7 obsession with Russia. Nevertheless, most of you have probably never heard of this saga, since when it comes to the corporate media news cycle, some election interference is more equal than others.

GLOBALISTS TO HOLD EMERGENCY MEETING IN WASHINGTON DC ON TRUMP

Matthew Boyle reports for Breitbart: The World Economic Forum’s annual gathering of globalist political, financial and cultural elitists is underway in Davos, Switzerland, but the organization’s founder is planning an emergency Washington, D.C., meeting in 2017 for worried elites worldwide to discuss how to deal with President-elect Donald J. Trump.
“The World Economic Forum is listening to Donald Trump,” Bloomberg’s Stephen Morris and Erik Schatzker wrote on Sunday. “The organization will convene a special meeting in Washington this year to discuss issues raised during the president-elect’s campaign and the populist wave that swept him to victory, WEF founder Klaus Schwab told Bloomberg Television on Sunday. The gathering will explore U.S. investment and job-creation opportunities for companies that participate in the forum, he said.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The fundamental, fatal problem with globalism, is that it only works effectively for people at the very top of the food chain, and not for ordinary working people; and if the "answers" this forum may provide are only about further suppressing the people at the bottom of the food chain, while enhancing the lives of those at the top, this will be completely unacceptable to ordinary citizens.

And I have a message for all the "Davosites"; the anger of those whose lives have been nearly economically crushed and destroyed through the practices of offshoring and outsourcing labor to the cheapest labor pool possible, is palpable.

If your "answers" do not include enhancing the earning capabilities of these people, they are completely useless, and globalism will be, legitimately, seen as "the enemy".

SOUTH KOREA SEEKS ARREST OF SAMSUNG CHIEF FOR BRIBERY, EMBEZZLEMENT AND PERJURY

South Korea political crisis spilled over into the corporate sector overnight, when the country's special prosecutor on Monday sought a warrant to arrest the head of Samsung Group, the country's largest conglomerate, accusing him of paying multi-million dollar bribes to a friend of impeached President Park Geun-hye.

According to Reuters, investigators had grilled the head of Samsung, the world's biggest maker of smartphones, flat-screen TVs and memory chips, Jay Y. Lee for 22 straight hours last week as a suspect in a corruption scandal, which last month led to parliament impeaching president Park.

The special prosecutor's office accused Lee of paying bribes total 43 billion won ($36.42 million) to organizations linked to Choi Soon-sil, a friend of the president who is at the center of the scandal, in order to secure the 2015 merger of two affiliates and cement his control of the family business.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The South Korean people are not going to take kindly to this corruption at the top levels of its government at all, even though it may shake the country to its very foundations.

ACTOR MARK RUFFALO JUST ADDED TO TERROR WATCH LIST BEFORE ANTI-FRACKING DOCUMENTARY SCREENING

Actor Mark Ruffalo has just reportedly been added to a US terror advisory list after campaigning in support of a documentary that focuses on the alleged dangers of natural gas drilling.
Ruffalo recently drew the attention of Pennsylvania’s Office of Homeland Security after organizing screenings for the documentary Gasland, according to the Guardian.

The Telegraph confirmed that Ruffalo was added to the list, as far back as 2010.

That documentary recently won the special jury prize at this year’s Sundance film festival.

Ruffalo said he was “concerned about the impact of drilling on water supplies.”

For some time now, the well-known actor has addressed the subject, including in the latest edition of of the magazine GQ.

Gasland was directed by Josh Fox. The documentary follows the film-maker’s visits to communities in Pennsylvania where natural gas has been drilled with some clearly disturbing effects on the environment and community.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When one attempts to tell the truth in this country, and the narrative is counter that of the deep state and corporate interests, now, in America, you can be branded as a "terrorist" for having done that.

Welcome to our world, Mr. Ruffalo; and if you would ever like to appear on Mike's radio show, we would be delighted to have you as our guest!!

EXPOSED: CIA – The Swamp Monsters

This is clearly evidenced in the current internal conflicts of the 17 federal intelligence agencies that have arisen from the new Russian “Trump blackmail” scandal and the DNC hacking scandal that was an attempt to derail the presidential election. These scandals happen again and again and involve warring federal agencies who are theoretically supposed to be protecting Americans. Instead, there is open warfare between the three different factions of the CIA and their enemies who are considered the “lesser agencies”: the NSA, FBI, Homeland Security, National Intelligence Agency, and the other redundant twelve U.S. intelligence agencies. Even the mainstream media, with all of its state sponsored legal propaganda, admits that this conflict is going on.

How the government can crack down on anti-Semitism on college campuses

The job of combating hate crimes on campuses falls on an obscure yet important agency in the Department of Education, called the Office for Civil Rights. It has found countless civil rights violations against women and against African-Americans. But when it comes to anti-Semitism on campus, the agency has been paralyzed. OCR has not found a single civil rights violation on any campus anti-Semitism case. It’s an astonishing and troubling statistic and shows the vulnerability of Jewish students across the country. The reason for OCR’s powerlessness is that it is ill-equipped to recognize anti-Semitism when it sees it. That is to say, OCR has no definition of anti-Semitism. Absent a definition, the office is stymied by anti-Semitism cases and is failing in its mission to protect Jewish students.
An alternative explanation is that Jewish students scream anti-Semitism when there actually is none, such as support for Palestine.

Official: Google makes change, results are no longer in denial over ‘Did the Holocaust happen?’

Google’s been under intense pressure to alter its results after it was found a week ago to be listing a Holocaust-denial site first for a search on “Did the Holocaust happen.” Now, that’s finally changing.
The change is primarily a result of Google altering its algorithm. In a statement it gave to Search Engine Land several hours after this story was written, it said:
Google was built on providing people with high-quality and authoritative results for their search queries. We strive to give users a breadth of diverse content from variety of sources and we’re committed to the principle of a free and open web. Judging which pages on the web best answer a query is a challenging problem and we don’t always get it right.
This kind of propaganda is why I switched to the Yandex search engine.

Police to Trump: ‘Help us continue to militarize’

Over the past 30 years police departments across the U.S. have acquired large quantities of military equipment. Moreover, police departments have begun to dress like the military, donning “battle dress uniforms” as opposed to traditional police uniforms. Police have also adopted questionable military tactics like no-knock raids.

While some argue that these changes are desirable, it’s important to understand the critical differences between the police and military. Blurring these differences leads to undesirable outcomes.

The Founding Fathers recognized that the police and military serve very different functions. Police are domestic peacekeepers. Their job is to uphold the law and protect the rights of citizens — both offenders and victims alike. They are to use violence only as a last resort.

The military, by contrast, is tasked with fighting enemies of the U.S. in foreign conflicts. They are trained to use violence to destroy their enemies and advance our interests.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The militarization of US police has lead to some real tragedies for ordinary citizens in this country, and in my world, needs to be reversed.

Yes, there are some really great, heroic law enforcement officers out there who are morally whole, and sane; Mike and I have a neighbor who is a police officer, and they are just good people, with an adorable toddler.

That being said, hiding behind a badge and a gun cannot be allowed to give police officers the sense that they can abuse their authority with impunity; this leads to assassinations of suspected perpetrators, and the resultant (and sometimes very justified) moral outrage of those who are left behind, which frequently manifest as demonstrations, which then may well become full-blown riots.

But I feel morally obligated to talk about the two primary reasons for the militarisation of America's police officers.

The alleged "war on drugs" has been a war on drugs NOT SOLD by various US "alphabet soup" agencies to fund "off the shelf operations" with no Congressional oversight.

And if this alleged "war on drugs" was supposed to eliminate, or curb, the sale, and use, of illicit drugs, it has been a complete, utter, and epic fail, except for throwing people in jail and getting better conviction statistics in a penal environment which punishes; where drugs are still readily available; but generally never rehabilitates.

The "war on terror" is, by blunt definition, a war on people whose resources the US expropriates, by military or political force, and then controls, making sure that they are controlled by US-centric governments, and only sold in US dollars.

This, too, has been an utter and complete fiasco; witness US/NATO "progress" in Afghanistan 15 years on, and the unending war in Iraq, in which the US government, again, finds itself enmeshed.

Intelligent, enlightened management of the affairs of this country would have opted for the development of alternative power sources that can fuel a tank, or an airplane, which would make both oil (why the US government went into Iraq in the first place) and pipelines (why the US government went into Afghanistan in the first place) a thing of the past, except for the most primitive of countries.

Unfortunately, however, intelligent, enlightened management of the affairs of this country, during the BushBama era, has been anything but.

The BushBama legacies have resulted in more wars; more poverty; more offshoring/outsourcing of jobs; and a huge gap in income equality, because of all the good jobs gone which had been the underpinning of a decent middle class life in this country.

I sincerely hope Trump is going to be able to turn this around, and understand that there are other, reasonable alternatives to resolving the US government's geopolitical issues, rather than through war.

Poll: Americans Come Out of Election More Scared of Russia

A new Reuters/IPSOS poll shows a growing number of Americans seeing US-Russia relations as “back to the old days of the Cold War,” with far more Americans seeing the Russian Federation as a bigger threat after the 2016 election campaign.

It should come as no surprise, of course, as the Clinton campaign spent the better part of the election claiming Russia was “hacking the vote,” and hysteria around US-Russia hostilities seemed to grow precipitously every day through the election, and continued as a headline story well after the vote itself.

The polls show exactly what the campaign did to the American psyche, however, with a nearly 10% increase in the number of Americans identifying Russia as a “threat to the United States” between early 2015 and today. It’s worth noting that the early 2015 figures were themselves already heightened by hype surrounding the East Ukraine civil war, and claims by US officials that a Russian invasion of Eastern Europe was imminent.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Americans have far less to worry about coming from Russia than they do from the "deep state" elements of their own government.

Settler leaders invited to attend Trump inauguration

Yesha Council hails ‘clear indication’ of different attitude of new administration, weeks after Obama failed to veto UN resolution condemning settlements.

In a sign of the different attitude of US President-elect Donald Trump, the West Bank settlers’ council said Friday it has been invited to send a delegation to the presidential inauguration next week.

It said that Oded Revivi, chairman of the Yesha settlers’ council, will lead the delegation. He will be joined by Benny Kasriel, mayor of Ma’aleh Adumim, a large settlement next to Jerusalem.

This comes three weeks after the Obama administration failed to veto a UN resolution condemning Israeli settlements, a move Israel bitterly condemned. Consecutive US administrations have called the settlements an obstacle to peace, saying they undermine the possibility of a two state solution.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This does not augur well for peace in the region at all; were any Palestinians invited?!?

I think not.

The Foolish Optimism of Hoping for Chelsea Manning’s Freedom

One place where Obama appears to show little mercy (besides abroad, under the target sites of drones and bombs in seven countries) is on the issue of whistleblowers and leakers. Former NSA contractor Edward Snowden was pragmatic to flee the USA after offering Glenn Greenwald and other journalists his bounty of stolen information on the country’s massive spying apparatus. He had a good reason to believe that his fate would be years to decades in prison if he were taken prisoner.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Manning and Snowden ultimately did the right thing; American citizens need to understand the depths of moral depravity to which their country is capable of sinking, and that is precisely what they did.

No one, to the best of my knowledge, has been killed or tortured for what these people have have shared with the public; but the American public has been educated by these revelations, which is precisely what those in the Deep State in this country absolutely do not want to see happen.

2017: Change Can Be A Bitch

2016 brought a lot of changes, or rather, brought them to light. In reality, the world has been changing for many years, but many prominent actors benefitted from the changes remaining hidden. Simply because their wealth and power and worldviews are better served that way.

It’s entirely unclear whether we will ever get a chance to see to what extent the efforts to hide developments have been successful, or even been perpetrated at all, because we don’t know to what extent truth and reality will be accessible in the future.

What we can say at this point in time is that the changes 2016 delivered were urgently needed. There are many people out there who just want to turn back the clock, and change everything back to how it was, but they can’t, and that’s a good thing, because the way things were was hurting too many people.

GOP Governors Privately Urging Congress To Reconsider Full Obamacare Repeal

As congressional Republicans move forward on plans to quickly repeal and ? less quickly ? replace President Barack Obama’s health care law, a wide variety of industry and political influencers are trying to slow their progress. Among the most persuasive may be a set of Republican governors who are fearful about losing the substantial health and monetary benefits from the law that their states currently enjoy.

On Friday morning, Politico reported on five such GOP governors who have been publicly calling on lawmakers to consider keeping the portion of the Affordable Care Act that supports the expansion of Medicaid in states that choose to.

Behind the scenes, these same governors are also working to persuade lawmakers from their states and those who have purview over the repeal and replace strategy that it would be wise to keep some portion of the federal matching funds for states that have pursued Medicaid expansion.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The problem here is, if Obamacare is immediately removed, with no replacement policy in place, what happens to people who are getting critically needed care, and the money for that care stops?!?

Is the Trump administration going to opt for involuntary euthanasia in those cases, where people cannot possibly pay for their own care?!?

I know it sounds ridiculous, but it may not be so far off the mark here; and that is what Federal and State lawmakers should be considering, and quickly.

North Dakota Bill Would Protect Drivers Who ‘Accidentally’ Hit And Kill Protesters

Republican lawmakers in North Dakota are taking aim at protesters with a handful of bills that would make another pipeline protest far more dangerous.

The oil-friendly legislature argues that its constituents are frustrated over the protests, which led federal authorities to halt construction of the $3.8-billion Dakota Access Pipeline as thousands of protesters braved cold weather and violence for months.

A bill that state GOP Rep. Keith Kempenich introduced would exempt drivers from liability if they accidentally hit a pedestrian, according to the Bismarck Tribune. House Bill 1203 was written up in direct response to groups of protesters blocking roadways, Kempenich told the paper. He claims protesters were seen jumping out in front of vehicles.

“It’s shifting the burden of proof from the motor vehicle driver to the pedestrian,” Kempenich said. “They’re intentionally putting themselves in danger.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When I originally read the headline, I thought it had to be a really sick joke, but I was completely, utterly wrong.

Apparently, Representative Keith Kempenich firmly believes that assassination of peaceful protesters, exercising their First Amendment rights to peaceable assembly, is the "new normal".

I sincerely hope his brother and sister North Dakotan legislators prove him wrong.

THE CLINTON FOUNDATION IS SHUTTING DOWN THE CLINTON GLOBAL INITIATIVE

In a "mass layoff" event reported late last week by the Department of Labor, the Clinton Foundation announced it would lay off some 22 employees at the Clinton Global Initiative, which attained notoriety during the John Podesta leaks, when the various details of the fallout between between CGI head Doug Band and Chelsea Clinton were revealed; it also emerged that long-time Bill Clinton friend Band was soliciting donations for Clinton through his PR firm, Teneo in an sordid example of "pay for play" which most of the mainstream media refused to cover, especially after Band emailed Podesta "If this story gets out, we are screwed."

Filed as mandated by the Department of Labor's Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification, or WARN notice, on January 12, the Clinton Foundation's Veronika Shiroka advised the DOL that as part of a "Plant Layoff" it would layoff 22 workers on April 15, with reason for the dislocation stated as "Discontinuation of the Clinton Global Initiative.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Some document shredding and computer wiping companies are about to get fabulously wealthy!!

And are there any bets as to whether the DOJ is going to be able, or willing, to get their hands on crucial documents proving, incontrovertibly, the "pay for play" elements of the foundation's existence?!?

Were I a betting woman, my bet would be....absolutely not.

The NSA can now share unfiltered surveillance data with other intelligence agencies

Barely a week before he leaves office, U.S. President Barack Obama’s administration has authorized controversial new legislation that grants America’s 16 intelligence organizations access to raw communications data from the NSA’s surveillance efforts.

The New York Times reported that on January 3 Attorney General Loretta Lynch signed new regulations that permit the 16 divisions — which include the army, navy, coastguard, CIA and FBI — access to “raw signals intelligence information.” In the past, information passed on by the NSA was filtered so that an agency would only receive information deemed relevant to their request for data. Now, they will gain access to the full content stash brought in by the NSA’s surveillance dragnet, assuming that their request is accepted.

Analysts can later apply filters to focus on the more pertinent data, but the government has enacted this change to give its analysts access to more atoms of data.

Is Trump Already Finished? — Paul Craig Roberts

January 13, 2017
Is Trump Already Finished?

Paul Craig Roberts

It did not take long before we knew there was no hope of change from President Obama. But at least he went into his inauguration with an unprecedented number of Americans on the Mall showing their support for the President of Change. Hope was abundant.

But with Trump, we are already losing faith, if not yet with him, at least with his choice of those who comprise his government even before Trump is inaugurated.

Trump’s choice for Secretary of State not only sounds like the neoconservatives in declaring Russia to be a threat to the United States and all of Europe, but also sounds like Hillary Clinton in declaring the South China Sea to be an area of US dominance. One would think that the chaiman of Exxon was not an idiot, but I am no longer sure. In his confirmation hearing, Rex Tillerson said that China’s access to its own South China Sea is “not going to be allowed.”

Obama Extends Sanctions On Russia Over Aggression In Ukraine By One Year

U.S. President Barack Obama on January 13 extended all U.S. sanctions on Russia over its annexation of Crimea and aggression in Ukraine by one year through March 2018.

The move appears designed to make it harder for U.S. President-elect Donald Trump to roll back the sanctions after Obama leaves office on January 20. Trump has said he wants to improve relations with Russia and would take a second look at the sanctions, although several of his chosen cabinet members said this week that they support the sanctions.

In extending the sanctions, which were due to expire in March 2017, Obama said the Russian government and other people and organizations targeted by the sanctions have "undermined democratic processes and institutions in Ukraine" by their "use of force in Ukraine" and thereby "threaten its peace, security, stability, sovereignty, and territorial integrity."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Russia never annexed Crimea; Obama, and his cronies, just made this lie up, because after the US/IMF/NATO-orchestrated putsch in 2014 where the duly elected President of Ukraine, Yanukovich, was thrown under a bus, and replaced by Poroshenko, Crimean officials understood, very clearly, that there was no legitimate government in Kiev.

In fact, Victoria Nuland, undersecretary of State, bragged in a presentation about how much money the US had spent on destablising Ukraine, and the US's intention to install a western-centric puppet as its President.

Victoria Nuland brags about how much money the US has spent to destabilize Ukraine

Funny, Obama seems to have an intense and severe case of SMD (selective memory disorder) on this regime change his administration helped to orchestrate.

But when Crimean officials realized that there was no legitimate government in Kiev, they did two things.

First was an honest and transparent referendum for the Crimean people, to ask if they would rather stay with Ukraine, post-putsch, or petition the Russian Federation to become a part of it. Overwhelmingly, the Crimean people voted to leave Ukraine, and join the Russian Federation; when petitioned by Crimea, the Russian Federation accepted, and Crimea became a part of the Russian Federation through peaceful self determination, as was its right under the UN Charter.

No "Russian annexation" ever happened, period, end of discussion.

And although what Crimea did was perfectly legitimate, it got the Ukraine and US governments steaming mad, so they collectively made up this lie about annexation; and now, the US government is penalising Russia, through this lie, for something it never, ever did.

This was an absolutely vile move on the part of President Obama, during his last days in office, and it will, practically, make it more difficult for Trump to ease relations with Russia.

Netanyahu Promised Mozes to Stifle Adelson's Daily: 'We Can Legislate It, We'll Set Up a Committee'

Also on Friday, Channel 10 cited senior police officials as saying that they will likely recommend charging Netanyahu in both cases, the first of which touches on his negotiations with Mozes and the second of which focuses on suspicions that he received gifts and benefits from businessman. According to Channel 2, these benefits were worth 600,000 shekels ($150,000).

Meanwhile, the Justice Ministry and the prosecution believe that an indictment is more likely to emerge from the second case, while the first case is less certain, Channel 10 said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This couldn't possibly happen to a more deserving politician!! :-)

Netanyahu MAY be able to use the power of the Prime Ministry to make this "go away"; but if he cannot, there may be a snap election in Israel, and perhaps (heaven willing) a different, less volatile; less insane and hubristic; and more pragmatic direction taken by their government.

One can always hope...

COURT SAYS TOSSING A FLASHBANG GRENADE INTO A ROOM WITH A TODDLER IS 'UNREASONABLE' POLICE BEHAVIOR

The Evansville (IN) Police Department has seen a drug bust go up in a cloud of flashbang smoke. A search warrant for drugs and weapons, based on an informant's tip, was executed perfectly… if you're the sort of person who believes it takes a dozen heavily-armed officers, a Lenco Bearcat, and two flashbangs to grab a suspect no one felt like arresting when he was outside alone taking out his trash. (via FourthAmendment.com)

The state appeals court decision [PDF] hinges on the deployment of a flashbang grenade into a room containing a toddler. Fortunately, in this case, the toddler was only frightened, rather than severely burned. But it was this tossed flashbang that ultimately undoes the PD's case. The evidence is suppressed and the conviction reversed.

Scattered throughout the opinion are some amazing depictions of the PD's SWAT team at work -- and how those officers seem to believe the violence of their entries during warrant service are somehow just the new normal.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF Illinois' officers believe that this is a great example of the phrase "to protect and serve", Illinois residents need to vote with their feet, if possible, and leave the state immediately, because living in this state can DEFINITELY be hazardous to one's health, and the health of one's children.

Ron Paul Classic: "We've Been Neo-Conned!" (2003 Video)

"The modern-day, limited-government movement has been co-opted. The conservatives have failed in their effort to shrink the size of government. There has not been, nor will there soon be, a conservative revolution in Washington. Political party control of the federal government has changed, but the inexorable growth in the size and scope of government has continued unabated. The liberal arguments for limited government in personal affairs and foreign military adventurism were never seriously considered as part of this revolution. Since the change of the political party in charge has not made a difference, who's really in charge? If the particular party in power makes little difference, whose policy is it that permits expanded government programs, increased spending, huge deficits, nation building and the pervasive invasion of our privacy, with fewer Fourth Amendment protections than ever before?

GEORGE SOROS: THE MAN BEHIND THE MAYHEM

George Soros states that his overriding cause in everything he supports philanthropically is what he calls the creation of “open societies,” and he states that the one principle he believes can save humanity is pluralism. Without that, he believes we will destroy each other. He witnessed such destruction as a boy in Hungary under Hitler’s occupation where clearly pluralistic cultures were not embraced, and he states those years were formative to his character, as I imagine they would be.

Maybe that is what drives Soros to put enormous amounts of money into squeezing people together through immigration, even though he sees that it is creating stress fractures in his beloved European Union. Given the horrors that he witnessed as a child, his need to force pluralistic societies into being could be pathologically driven.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I, for one, believe that all immigrants from Africa and the Middle East should only be allowed to live on Soros-owned and leased properties, so that he, too can be "culturally enriched".

King Family civil trial 10 minute video: US .01% assassinated Martin, with corporate media and political ‘leaders’ ongoing criminal co-conspirators after the fact to ‘fake news cover’ US rogue state empire killing humanity’s best, brightest, most loving

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

RT interviewing Bill Pepper for ten minutes:

Obviously, the following evidence demands arrests in our world of the present of those .01% liars in government and corporate media who act as ongoing criminal accomplices after the fact to protect those who assassinated Martin.

The overwhelming evidence of US government complicity found valid by the jury includes:

US 111th Military Intelligence Group were at Dr. King’s location during the assassination.
20th Special Forces Group had an 8-man sniper team at the assassination location on that day.
Usual Memphis Police special body guards were advised they “weren’t needed” on the day of the assassination.
Regular and constant police protection for Dr. King was removed from protecting Dr. King an hour before the assassination.
Military Intelligence set-up photographers on the roof of a fire station with clear view to Dr. King’s balcony.

Aggressive Wal-Mart Goon Demands My Reciept, Again

You know what really gets me though? One of my biggest pet peeves- When they have an aggressive guy who stands at the door and acts as if he can demand to see your receipt before you leave. Here's the thing. In America, we have the 4th Amendment. Even a cop can't walk up to you, block your path and demand "SHOW ME YOUR PAPERS! EMPTY YOUR POCKETS!" So some smarmy Wal-Mart employee certainly has no authority to demand ##@@ from me any more than a cop or a homeless derelict would. I've dealt with this at Wal-Mart many times, most recently on Christmas eve.

Head of D.C. National Guard to be removed from post in middle of inauguration

The U.S. Army general who heads the D.C. National Guard and is an integral part of overseeing the inauguration said Friday he has been ordered removed from command effective Jan. 20, 12:01 p.m., just as Donald Trump is sworn in as president.

Maj. Gen. Errol R. Schwartz’s departure will come in the midst of the presidential ceremony, classified as a national special security event — and while thousands of his troops are deployed to help protect the nation’s capital during an inauguration he has spent months helping to plan.

“The timing is extremely unusual,” Schwartz said in an interview Friday morning, confirming a memo announcing his ouster that was obtained by The Washington Post. During the inauguration, Schwartz would command not only the members of the D.C. guard but also an additional 5,000 unarmed troops sent in from across the country to help. He also would oversee military air support protecting the nation’s capital during the inauguration.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Something really stinks here, in terms of the timing; and as reported at zerohedge.com today:

“The timing is extremely unusual,” Schwartz said in an interview Friday morning, confirming a memo announcing his ouster that was obtained by The Washington Post. During the inauguration, Schwartz would command not only the members of the D.C. guard but also an additional 5,000 unarmed troops sent in from across the country to help. He also would oversee military air support protecting the nation’s capital during the inauguration. “My troops will be on the street,” Schwartz, who turned 65 in October, said, “I’ll see them off but I won’t be able to welcome them back to the armory.” He said that he would “never plan to leave a mission in the middle of a battle.” Schwartz, who was appointed to head the guard by President George W. Bush in 2008, maintained the position through President Obama’s two terms. He said his orders came from the Pentagon but that he doesn’t know who made the decision. D.C. Council Chairman Phil Mendelson (D) blasted the decision to remove Schwartz, especially on Inauguration Day. “It doesn’t make sense to can the general in the middle of an active deployment,” Mendelson said. He added that Schwartz’s sudden departure would be a long-term loss for the District. “He’s been really very good at working with the community and my impression was that he was good for the Guard.” Unlike in states, where the governor appoints the National Guard commander, in the District that duty falls to the president. Schwartz said that he has not been told why he was asked to step down. “I’m a soldier,” he said, noting that he was following orders and has no regrets. “I’m a presidential appointee, therefore the president has the power to remove me.”

The timing here just does not augur well at all for a "smooth transition", and I have to wonder just who at the Pentagon thought it was that critically important to have Schwartz stand down just as Trump is being inaugurated.

Folks, I hope to hell I am wrong, but I smell the proverbial rat here.

US-NATO ‘Buildup on Russian Border Could Lead to Nuclear War’ – Nobel Laureate

On Thursday, US Secretary of Defense nominee James Mattis told a Senate committee in confirmation hearings that NATO must build capacity in eastern Europe to deter Russia’s alleged aggression. This came a day after Secretary of State nominee Rex Tillerson testified that the United States would defend NATO member states if Russia invaded.

“There is little or no evidence that Russia is being aggressive towards the NATO countries,” Caldicott, co-winner of the 1985 Nobel Peace Prize, told Sputnik. “That is a lie that the United States insists on maintaining.”

Caldicott pointed out, however, that it was the United States and NATO, not Russia, that was building up its armed forces to unprecedented levels in central and eastern Europe and exacerbating tensions in the region.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Caldicott to whom this article refers, is Dr. Helen Caldicott, the founder of the organisation "Physicians for Social Responsibility",and a woman for whom I have the highest respect.

Coupled with NATO's and the US's encirclement of Russia, with troops and materials pouring on to Russia's border, I have that nasty taste in my mouth, indicating that we are getting psychologically "prepped" for a huge false flag to be blamed on Russia, and off we go to World War 3.

Oh, and if you haven't picked up on it, several American and NATO Generals gave a news conference today, and this was what they said:

The US is ready for war against Russia in Europe!!

Just thought you should know, as we are being distracted by various US agencies who are investigating the activities of other agencies regarding the investigations of the Clinton email scandal.

Just like right before we were misdirected ("Conditized") with all the focus on the terrible death of Chandra Levy, a Congressional aide to Gary Condit right before 9/11, we are now getting "Clintonized" to distract our attention from a coming war with Russia.

Folks, something wicked this way comes; please pay attention to what is going on out there.

HEROIC Assange Agrees to Extradition if US Releases Chelsea Manning

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange will agree to be extradited to the United States if President Barack Obama grants clemency to the former US soldier Chelsea Manning, jailed for leaking documents, Wikileaks says. "If Obama grants Manning clemency Assange will agree to US extradition despite clear unconstitutionality of DoJ (US Department of Justice) case," WikiLeaks wrote on Twitter.

An Israeli army tactic: Intimidating Palestinian children in the night

The two wanted individuals were sleeping in the boys’ bedroom, with blue walls and three beds, all of them blue, too. The girls’ room is pink. Tariq woke up in a fright. A soldier grabbed him by the arm. At this point seven soldiers were in the house. One of them took Hikmat to the living room and ordered him to sit on the floor. Six-year-old Mahmoud, in his father’s arms, began to cry, “Daddy, daddy!” Another soldier shut Iman in her room with her two daughters; as he did this, one of them, Shahed, 11, broke into tears. The two wanted brothers were taken to separate rooms, and the doors closed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This vicious intimidation of Palestinian children by masked IDF members is an old stock in trade device.

Wow, it must take a REALLY MANLY MAN to punish innocent kids this way, just for their being Palestinian!!

Israeli official who plotted to 'take down' British MPs resigns

The Israeli embassy official who was caught on camera plotting to “take down” British MPs has resigned from government service.

Shai Masot, a senior political officer at the embassy in London, resigned several days ago when he was sent back to Israel. The UK Foreign Office and the Israeli ministry of foreign affairs both said that they regarded the matter as closed.

But the shadow foreign secretary, Emily Thornberry, has called on the Commons foreign affairs committee to conduct an inquiry into the matter, saying it amounted to “improper interference in our democratic politics” by a foreign state.

Masot was filmed by an undercover reporter from Al Jazeera television’s investigations unit as he talked about taking down MPs he considered hostile to Israel, including Sir Alan Duncan, the foreign office minister.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Good on ya, Al Jazeera; good on ya!!!!!

But a small caveat to the British House of Lords, and House of Commons; please don't think the problem has been cured here because the symptom is no longer there.
At this point, you must fully expect anyone representing the Israeli government who replaces Shai Masot to be looking at attempting to do precisely the same thing he was, just with a little more finesse; this is the way the Israeli establishment thinks, and the sooner you accept it, the sooner you will be more able to prevent its negative impact on the British government.

US watched ISIS rise in Syria and hoped to ‘manage’ it — Kerry on leaked tape

The New York Times got a hold of the tape back in September and wrote a story about it. So did CNN. More on their accounts later.

The thrust of the conversation was the mutual frustration of Kerry and the Syrians that Bashar al-Assad was still in power and able to commit atrocities with the support of the Russians, who don’t adhere to international law the way we Americans do. I’d recommend listening to the whole tape; but the conversation went something like this:

The Syrians complained we aren’t helping enough. Kerry and his associates said we and the Saudis and Qatar and Turkey had provided huge amounts of aid to the rebels, who unfortunately were sort of aligned with extremists.

“Nusra makes it hard,” Kerry said, referring to Jabhat al-Nusra, the Al Qaeda affiliate in Syria. “Nusra and Daesh [ISIS] both make it hard, because you have this extreme element out there and unfortunately some of the opposition has kind of chosen to work with them.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Absoflippinglutely unbelievable; the US government allowed ISIS to grow to destabilise the Syrian government, believing it would push Al-Assad to the negotiating table, and then would resign; but Al-Assad called for Russian help, which has been the major factor in getting most of the jihadists out of Syria successfully.

And no one in the White House, Pentagon, or State Department saw Russian help coming, if Al Assad asked for it?!?

THAT...was a catastrophic failure of imagination on the part of the US government, and very much demonstrates an almost pathological inability of US government analysts to think a scenario through to its logical conclusion.

Circuit Court Issues Edict Demanding 70-Year-Old Blogger Remove Content- He Gives Them The Preverbial Finger

70-year-old blogger Gary Hunt has posted a very intruiging update to his situation regarding a circuit court judge's ruling regarding his website on Thursday, January 12th.

Basically the court is trying to say that they have the authority to demand Hunt take down certain content on his blog- regarding information pertaining to confidential federal informants (snitches) in the Bundy Oregon refuge case- but Hunt ain't buying it. Hunt has court documents which were presented in discovery in the cases of the seven remaining defendants who will be tried this February. He has been very clear, explaining in his very lengthy and detailed blog posts that he has not and will not post the actual documents, but rather has only excerpted from them.

Rex Tillerson Wants to Provide Saudi Arabia With More Help to Bomb Yemen

FOR 21 MONTHS, a coalition of nations led by Saudi Arabia has been relentlessly bombing Yemen, using U.S.- and U.K.-produced weapons and intelligence in a war that has devastated Yemen and killed well over 10,000 civilians.

There is abundant evidence that the high civilian death toll in Yemen is the result of deliberate — not accidental — strikes by Saudi Arabia. During its air campaign, Saudi Arabia has bombed endless civilian targets — including homes, farms, markets, factories, water infrastructure, hospitals, and children’s schools — and has even gone so far as to use internationally banned cluster weapons, which are designed to inflict damage over a wide area and often remain lethal years after being dropped.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Rex, Rex, Rex, REX REX!!!!!!

I am having an industrial strength, palm to forehead moment, reading this, at warp speed!

Are you happy that the US has been complicit in Saudi war crimes by selling them the bullets and bombs to make their destruction of Yemen as complete as possible, including the bombing to death and starving to death Yemen's children?!?!?

Please, for God's sake, tell me no!!

And whoever on the TTT (Trump Transition Team) who is following this blog, please share the following images with Mr. Tillerson, so he "gets it", as to what the real issue here is, which can ultimately only be resolved through political negotiation by all sides.

This is what life looks like to a Yemeni kid these days:

Images: starving Yemeni children, as a result of the Saudi naval blockade of Yemen

Images: Killed and wounded children, courtesy of Saudi bombing raids in Yemen

I would like to politely point out that the Saudi "Scorched earth" policy in Yemen has not been working.

And one of the most classic definitions of insanity is to do the same thing, in precisely the same way, yet expecting a different outcome; so it is with the US government's enabling the Saudi war against Yemen.

Dahr Jamail | James Mattis Is a War Criminal: I Experienced His Attack on Fallujah Firsthand

In November 2005 US marines in Iraq committed a massacre of 24 unarmed Iraqi civilians. The slaughtering of unarmed men, women, children and elderly people, shot multiple times at close range, was retribution for a roadside bomb attack on a convoy of marines. The war crimes were extremely well documented and the atrocity garnered international attention.

Mattis went on to dismiss all of the charges leveled against the marines who had been accused of killing the civilians and of the eight originally charged, only one still faces possible prosecution, but one can guess how that will end up.
Mattis was the head of Camp Pendleton's 1st Marine Division in Iraq and played a lead role during both of the US sieges of Fallujah in 2004.
While reporting from inside Fallujah during that siege, I personally witnessed women, children, elderly people and ambulances being targeted by US snipers under Mattis' command. Needless to say, all of these are war crimes.

Russia is the Principle Threat to the United States' - Pentagon Chief Nominee

Retired Gen. James Mattis said Russia posed the primary threat to the United States.

OF THE LIARS, BY THE LIARS, AND FOR THE LIARS

Let's start with some basic concepts. You live in an age of lies. Every day of your life you are literally being drowned in lies. Lies by government. Lies by advertisers. Lies by the corporate media.

Truth has become such a valuable commodity that the government is economizing it!

...

The historical fact is that all rulers lie pretty much all of the time, and each newly revealed lie ought not to be thought of as a shocking isolated incident, but merely a continuation of standard operating bullshit! In short, the vast majority of what you are told by rulers is a lie, and the rare moment of absolute truth a rare and precious gem worthy of celebration.

Here are some examples from history.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Corporate media is in a panic right now. Ari Fleischer is bemoaning the fact that all corporate media is seen as on the same level with BuzzFeed, and Howard Kurtz is claiming that it is bad for the country when the corporate media loses the "Moral Authority" to mediate disputes (meaning to decide for you what is real and what is not). It isn't bad for the country, just bad for the liars, but to them that is the same thing.


"Our job is to give people not what they want, but what we decide they ought to have."
-- Richard Salent, Former President CBS News.

"News is what someone wants to suppress. Everything else is advertising". former NBC news President Rubin Frank

Asked to give a toast before the prestigious New York Press Club in 1880, John Swinton, the former Chief of Staff at the New York Sun, made this candid confession [it's worth noting that Swinton was called "The Dean of His Profession" by other newsmen, who admired him greatly]:

" There is no such thing, at this date of the world's history, as an independent press. You know it and I know it. There is not one of you who dares to write your honest opinions, and if you did, you know beforehand that it would never appear in print. I am paid weekly for keeping my honest opinions out of the paper I am connected with. Others of you are paid similar salaries for similar things, and any of you who would be so foolish as to write honest opinions would be out on the streets looking for another job.

If I allowed my honest opinions to appear in one issue of my paper, before twenty-four hours my occupation would be gone. The business of the journalist is to destroy the truth; to lie outright; to pervert; to vilify; to fawn at the feet of Mammon, and to sell the country for his daily bread. You know it and I know it and what folly is this toasting an independent press. We are the tools and vassals of the rich men behind the scenes. We are the jumping jacks, they pull the strings and we dance. Our talents, our possibilities and our lives are all the property of other men. We are intellectual prostitutes. "


"This instrument can teach, it can illuminate; yes, and it can even inspire. But it can do so only to the extent that humans are determined to use it to those ends. Otherwise it is merely wires and lights in a box." -- Edward R. Murrow

Thousands of US Troops, Tanks Advance Toward Russian Border

Having arrived in Germany a few days ago, a mass of over 3,000 US ground troops backed by a large column of American tanks are advancing eastward toward the Russian border today, heading across Poland as part of a major NATO operation called Atlantic Resolve.

Unlike a lot of more specific war-games simulating explicit wars on certain fronts, Atlantic Resolve was initially launched just to spite Russia over the civil war in Eastern Ukraine, and seems to be designed more or less to simply antagonize Russia militarily.

And it’s doing it’s job, in that event, as Russian officials expressed serious concern over the matter, saying they believe the advance of a large number of US troops heading toward Russia is a threat to national security. They also added that they don’t appreciate having a large number of troops massed on their European border by a nation that isn’t even European.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A short memo to NATO Secretary-General, Jens Stoltenberg; your efforts at attempting to "...lock President-Elect Trump into a policy of hostility toward Russia." is headed toward an epic fail.

There's only one week before Trump gets inaugurated, and after that point, he and his team will, hopefully, make the right decisions for the future of this country vis a vis Russia, and I can tell you, with very little fear of contradiction, that their Russian policy will NOT be war-centric, as is NATO's.

REPORT: US INTEL MET SECRETLY WITH MOSSAD, PLOTTING TO HIDE INTELLIGENCE FROM TRUMP

A bombshell report from Israeli news service Ynet says Israeli and American intelligence officials are plotting to hide intelligence from incoming president Donald Trump.

Trump needs to see this report. Our lying press is completely ignoring it.

YnetNews reports:

Donald Trump’s upcoming inauguration as the next president of the United States is causing Israeli intelligence officials to lose sleep as well. Discussions held in closed forums recently raised fears of a leakage of Israeli intelligence top-classified information, clandestine modus oprandi and sources, which have been exposed to the American intelligence community over the past 15 years, to Russia – and from there to Iran.

The cause of concern are the suspicions of unreported ties between the president-elect or his associates and the Kremlin, whose agents are also associated with intelligence officials in Tehran.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Are you flipping kidding me?!?

And THIS, from the government whose leader said the following, the day after the election?!? Netanyahu hails Trump as a "True Friend of Israel"

So now, "true friends of Israel" have intel withheld from their governments, based on utterly false narrative, innuendo, and lies?!?

President Elect Trump, please keep your eyes open when it comes to Israeli geopolitics; their leadership very much likes to collectively "relieve themselves" in the faces of American leaders, then nonchalantly tell them it's raining!!

ISRAELI JETS BOMB DAMASCUS MILITARY AIRPORT; SYRIA VOWS IT WILL RESPOND TO "FLAGRANT ATTACK"

Just as the Syrian proxy war showed some hopeful signs of finally dying down, the Syrian army command said on Friday that Israeli jets have bombed the Mezzeh military airport west of Damascus, accusing Tel Aviv of supporting terrorism, and warned Tel Aviv of repercussions of what it called a "flagrant" attack. Syrian state TV quoted the army as saying several rockets were fired from an area near Lake Tiberias in northern Israel just after midnight which landed in the compound of the airport, a major facility for elite Republican Guards and special forces. The airport was rocked by multiple explosions, some of which were captured by social media.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A memo to Russia's President Vladimir Putin; the Israeli government is doing its damnedest to get you to respond militarily here, as the "excuse" for all that manpower and weaponry with which the US and NATO have stockpiled on your borders to be allowed to be unleashed, and describe it as their response to "Russian aggression."

Please don't take the bait, President Putin; it is only, thankfully, one week before the inauguration of Donald Trump.

And when that happens, I strongly suspect that the relationship between our two countries will become infinitely more pragmatic, and business-like, which is the way sensible, mature countries treat each other.

And finally,sir: no matter how prodigious the amounts of horse manure this government and their presstitutes are attempting to rain down in their futile, and fact-free, attempts to demonise Russia, in order to get Americans whipped up into a "wargasm", trumpeting the necessity of a war against Russia for false, and stunningly stupid, claims against it, no thinking American I know wants war with Russia.

And to President Al-Assad; please be very careful and cautious about how you answer this vicious, unprovoked Israeli attack.

This attack, in the dead of night, speaks volumes about the character, and complete, and utter, absence of morality, of the current Israeli government in Tel Aviv.

Financial Times Editorial Seeks Restrictions On Free Speech To Stop False News "Propaganda War"

FINANCIAL TIMES EDITORIAL SEEKS RESTRICTIONS ON FREE SPEECH TO STOP FALSE NEWS “PROPAGANDA WAR”

A pair of articles by the Financial Times offers quite the take on disinformation hypocrisy.

I suggest the Financial Times look into the mirror if it wants to understand where the problem is.

Worse yet, to stop the spread of fake news, the FT editorial board wants restrictions on freedom of speech.

Yesterday, in The Threat Posed by Putin’s Cyber Warriors the FT was so worried about “disinformation” that it proposed restrictions on freedom of speech.

“The Russian state is far from alone in using hacking as a form of espionage. What distinguishes Moscow’s activity is the malicious way it appears to be using the information garnered and disseminating fake news to further pollute the political atmosphere. The timing of leaks during the US election looked calculated to weaken Hillary Clinton, the Democratic candidate,” claims the FT editorial view.
After railing against “fake news” the editorial view went on to propose restrictions on free speech.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

FT has an agenda, which it does not want to see upset, no matter how factually correct reporting may be here on the net.

It doesn't want us "plebes" to realise the level of financial manipulation which goes into things like precious metals price suppression; the sharp, and dirty tactics done by financial institutions to foreclose homes to which they have utterly no financial or moral right; and the lavish mounds of money they throw at candidates at every level, but particularly the national level, to insure that these institutions are never, ever regulated to the full extent they should be, to prevent the continuous unethical practices in which they indulge with absolute impunity.

"35 PAGES" ATTACK AGAINST TRUMP FAILS - FOREIGN AND DOMESTIC LOSSES

The tale about the fake accusations about Russian influence on the U.S. presidential election becomes more gripping by each day. The are part of a larger war between various groups of the "elites" but also include infighting between U.S. government organizations.

We know that there was heavy Ukrainian influence on the side of Clinton in the election and in the current smear campaign against Trump and Russia. But it certainly wasn't Ukraine alone that is behind this. There are more international connections.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It will be interesting to see what the Trump presidency will do with the CIA, FBI, DHS, and ONI, during his presidency; my sense will be that he will want to gut them, from the top down, and start over with personnel who do not want to play dirty political games, but really value the safety and integrity of the American way of life, and will structure their work accordingly.

Is The U.S. Government Insolvent? Sorry, But Its Accountant Can't Tell You

Fiscal Policy: Question: What do you call it when a major organization's financial statements are so deceptive and badly kept that even its auditor refuses to render an opinion? Answer: The federal government.

That's right, the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO), the federal government's accountant, refused to hand down an opinion of the federal government's financial statements for 2016 "due to deficiencies that have plagued prior financial statements — persistent financial management problems at the Department of Defense (DOD), the government's inability to account for and reconcile certain transactions, an ineffective process for preparing the consolidated financial statements, and significant uncertainties."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation: the Federal government is taking your tax dollars and, literally, throwing them away on payments they should not have been making, to the tune of $144 billion dollars.

Angry yet?!?!?

FEDS MAY LET PLAYPEN CHILD PORN SUSPECT GO TO KEEP CONCEALING THEIR SOURCE CODE

Rather than disclose the source code that the FBI used to target a child porn suspect, federal prosecutors in Tacoma, Washington recently dropped their appeal in United States v. Michaud.
The case is just one of 135 federal prosecutions nationwide involving the Tor-hidden child porn website Playpen. The vast effort to bust Playpen has raised significant questions about the ethics, oversight, capabilities, and limitations of the government’s ability to hack criminal suspects.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Child porn is sick, at every level; that being said, however, the Federal Government can never, ever be allowed to behave as though they are above the law in cases like this.

Peter Schweizer: Your money is being used to help bankroll the World Economic Forum in Davos. Why?

Later this month hundreds of private jets are expected to descend on a small town in the canton of Graubünden, Switzerland, for a few brief days.

They will be carrying the elite of the elite, who will be attending the World Economic Forum (WEF).

Held in the beautiful Alpine mountain resort of Davos-Klosters, attendance is strictly by invitation only. Basic membership in the WEF costs $50,000. A premium membership can set you back $500,000. But in recent years the WEF has enjoyed another source of income. Since 2013, the Obama administration has been sending foreign assistance dollars to the WEF through the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). According to government records, the tab to taxpayers thus far is $26 million.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Obama has been sending $26 million dollars to WEF since 2013, while homeless Veterans still sleep in our streets?!?

ABSOFLIPPINGLUTELY UNBELIEVABLE!!

This is one hell of an outrage, when we have so many urgently pressing problems here at home, and I hope Trump cures the problem, and quickly.

How Mike Pence could instigate the removal of Donald Trump from office

Section 4 of the 25th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution asserts:

Whenever the Vice President and a majority of … the principal officers of the executive departments … transmit to the president pro tempore of the Senate and the speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall immediately assume the powers and duties of the office as acting President.

...

Presumably, the aristocrats (with the assistance of the news media they control) will buy-off any congressional stragglers whom they must, in order to meet that two-thirds requirement. (After all, these people own trillions; buying such a palace coup would be a huge bargain for them.) If they fail, however, there is no statutory penalty for their having attempted what would then have been, in fact, a legal palace coup in the U.S. federal government.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Desperation on the cusp of madness!

“First they ignore you. Then they laugh at you. Then they fight you. And then you win.” ~ unsourced, and attributed to Gandhi’s analysis of British empire response to having their hypocrisy exposed: claiming to bring Christian love and progress while looting resources with forced local labor.

“When we now know that all claims for war with Iraq were known lies as they were told (and verbally explained here), and CNN provides similar innuendo for war by an unsourced alleged report with concerns of what might occur in the future allegedly stated by an unnamed US source reporting on an unnamed foreign source, this is propaganda and not news.” ~ My 2010 analysis of “fake news” reporting from CBS, ABC, CNN to lie Americans into illegal war on Iran.

Obama gives US intelligence greater access to warrantless data on foreigners

Barack Obama, in one of his final acts on national security, has permitted US intelligence and law enforcement agencies far greater access to raw communications data warrantlessly collected on foreign targets, a move that has alarmed privacy advocates.

Under an executive order, the CIA, FBI and other security agencies will be able to access unfiltered surveillance aimed at foreigners abroad, before information identifying or revealing Americans they may be in contact with gets censored out.

After Tanks the Boots: Thousands of US Troops Touch Ground in Europe on Way to Russian Frontier

A US armored brigade (3rd Armored Brigade, 4th Infantry Division) is on the move to Russia's Baltic border. After its equipment begun arriving in Europe last week so now have its soldiers.

The move is so big it will require 37 trains and over one thousand rail cars to transport from Germany to Poland.

A US armored brigade fields over 400 tracked and over 1300 wheeled vehicles including 80 62-ton Abrams tanks, 140 Bradley armored fighting vehicles and 400 humvees.

Is This The Coup In America? “U.S. Troops On Russian Border” To Start War Before Inauguration ? By Mac Slavo

Is there a coup underway, while America is in the transition period, and before Trump swears in as the 45th president of the United States?

How real is the clash between the rogue Manhattan billionaire and the intelligence gang behind the throne? Who will win the struggle for power over foreign policy? These are serious times and require serious considerations.

The U.S. sent an entire armored brigade to the Russian border, and Vladimir Putin is preparing as if for war. Missile defense systems are raised; tall claims and serious charges have been leveled; diplomatic relations have chilled to a permafrost. Several Russian diplomats have turned up dead recently, including one murdered in front of cameras during a dramatic assassination in Turkey. Russia has bucked U.S. order in the Middle East, and carved out a potential peace deal in Syria without their consultation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This scenario is not as outlandish as you might want to believe; the pieces are in place as I type this commentary, and all it will take is either one catastrophic wrong move (or a deliberate false flag) to get things rolling before Trump even has the opportunity to take the Oath of Office.

I am watching the feed from Faux News, and McCaul is stating that "there must be consequences for what Russia is doing", when there is absolutely zero proof that Russia has done anything to either swing last year's election in Trump's direction, or blackmail Trump to do its bidding.

And what really has gotten the hair at the back of my neck up, and has gotten it break dancing (a very odd feat for the hair of someone who is right handed/left eye dominant)is the following article:

Russia puts Moscow S-400s on combat alert: Video

The two words which alarm me in that headline are: "COMBAT ALERT".

Whatever the Russian government is expecting, it must be pretty horrific for this equipment to be deployed, just outside of Moscow.

Obama Used His New Executive Order for the First Time, Officially Classified US Election System as “Critical Infrastructure”

Remember when DHS head Jeh Johnson announced Homeland Security might have to take over and "protect" our elections as critical infrastructure (a scary prospect at the time considering how partisan/progressive/pro-Hillary Obama's entire administration is)?

Well now they have one more layer of bureaucracy under which to do so in the future.

DHS CREATES THE 'NATIONAL LIVESTOCK READINESS PROGRAM' TO CONTROL OUR FOOD SUPPLY

DHS wants to control our food supply, this sounds like a 'fake news' story but unfortunately it's all too real.

Last year, DHS gave the National Agricultural Biosecurity Center (NABC) $331,118 to develop the 'National Livestock Readiness Program'.

Don't we already have two government agencies that control disease outbreaks in animals?

The government created the FDA and the USDA to control disease, foodborne pathogens etc., why do we need a national livestock program run by DHS? (click here to read about mad cow disease.)

The very name Department of Homeland Security should give people pause. Many of us have watched DHS turn America into a police state ruled by fear. DHS has created fear of each other (See Something Say Something) fear of drugs, fear of drunk & drugged driving, fear of terror and now fear of hate crimes.

The endless wars and fear of everything is the only reason DHS exists.

DHS and the Feds to control our food supply

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am going to look to buy local, as much as I can, without my produce being sprayed with glyphosate and other carcinogens.

That the DHS is looking to control the American food supply scares the stuffing out of me, and I will do everything to purchase healthy, local food over which it has zero control.

UK child-abuse whistleblower sentenced to two years by kangaroo court held in secret

On Wednesday 11 January 2016, Melanie Shaw, the whistleblower on the horrific abuse of children which occurred at the then county council-run Beechwood Children's Home in Nottinghamshire in the late 1980s, was given a two-year custodial sentence in a secret court hearing.

The nature of the charge against her is unclear and that information is refused when requested of court staff. The case took place late yesterday morning but it did not appear on any court lists until the hearing was past.

Gen. Mattis: "Russia Is The Principal Threat To US Security"

“Our Armed Forces must remain the best led, best equipped, and most ready force in the world,” Mattis told the Senate. “We must also embrace our international alliances and security partnerships. History is clear: nations with strong allies thrive and those without them wither.”

“My watchwords will be solvency and security in providing for the protection of our people and the survival of our freedoms,” Mattis said. “America has two fundamental powers. One is intimidation,” Mattis told Senator Gary Peters (D-Michigan). “The other power, which we’ve used less in the last 20 years, is the power of inspiration.” The US should not be turning to military power as the answer to all of its concerns around the world, the retired Marine general added.

Here are some of the key highlights so far:

Russia Is "Principal Threat" To US Security

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would be curious as to understand in what context Mattis believes Russia is our "principal threat"?!?

Because in looking at Putin's behaviour, I just don't see it. What I see is a master chess player, who has generally been one hundred moves ahead of his American and European counterparts.

Dangers of Genetically Modified Corn: New 90-Day Rat Study Destroys Corporate GMO Propaganda

GM proponents who constantly drone on with untrue claims that the science has clearly demonstrated GMOs as safe were dealt yet another blow shortly before Thanksgiving this past year.

This is because yet another study has been published demonstrating the negative health effects of GMOs on the intestinal tract.

This study by Ibrahim and Okasha entitled “Effect of genetically modified corn on the jejunal mucosa of adult male albino rat.,” and published in the journal Experimental and Toxicologic Pathology has demonstrated that rats fed GM Bt corn MON810 for only 90 days did indeed suffer rather serious damage to the surface mucous membranes of the jejunum – which is part of the small intestine.

The specific type of corn fed to the rats was MON810: Ajeeb YG. This is a GM version of Ajeeb, which is a local species of corn grown in Egypt. The GM version was created by Monsanto for the Egyptian market.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When you watch the cute commercials about breakfast cereals, you have to ask, are the ingredients in this food GMO?!?

Because if so, you need to throw them out pronto, to avoid doing any more damage to your system.

Historical Legacy of Obama The War Criminal, Butcherer of Women and Children, US Dropped 26,171 Bombs in 2016

There is no doubt that US President Barak Obama is a war criminal as are his military and intelligence officials and most of the House and Senate.

Obama is the first president to keep the US at war for the entirety of his eight-year regime. During 2016 alone the US dropped 26,171 bombs on wedding parties, funerals, kid’s soccer games, hospitals, schools, people in their homes and walking their streets, and farmers tilling their fields in seven countries: Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, Libya, Yemen, Somalia and Pakistan.

http://blogs.cfr.org/zenko/2017/01/05/bombs-dropped-in-2016/

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As a Christian pacifist activist, I am hopeful that President-Elect Trump understands that there are more ways to pursue the geopolitical agenda of this country other than wars and pre-emptive invasions.

Only time will tell, however.

Obama’s Farewell Address. Nuclear Proliferation, Killing Bin Laden, Reversing the “Great Recession” …

During the speech he listed a series of accomplishments that represent, in his view, the high marks of his presidency: As he put it, he ‘reversed the Great Recession, rebooted the auto industry, generated the longest job creation period in Us economic history, got 20 million people health insurance coverage, halved US dependency on foreign oil, negotiated the Iran nuclear proliferation deal, killed Osama Bin Laden, prevented foreign terrorist attacks on the US homeland, ended torture, passed laws to protect citizens from surveillance, and worked to close GITMO.’ Sounds good, unless one considers the facts behind the ‘hurrah for me’ claims.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This farewell speech demonstrates, yet again, the huge, astonishing chasm between Obama's perception of reality, and reality itself.

What about the 95 million Americans not participating in the labor force? What does he have to say to console them?!?

95 million Americans not participating in the US labor force

And to his assertion that his Seal Team "took out Bin Laden in Abbotabad" under his watch; Bin Laden died in 2001.

Osama Bin Ladin died in 2001

And not a word about the wars he has caused to happen, or expand upon, in such countries such as Yemen; Libya; Somalia; Afghanistan; and Iraq.

The Deep State Goes to War with President-Elect, Using Unverified Claims, as Democrats Cheer

IN JANUARY, 1961, Dwight Eisenhower delivered his farewell address after serving two terms as U.S. president; the five-star general chose to warn Americans of this specific threat to democracy: “In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist.” That warning was issued prior to the decadelong escalation of the Vietnam War, three more decades of Cold War mania, and the post-9/11 era, all of which radically expanded that unelected faction’s power even further.

This is the faction that is now engaged in open warfare against the duly elected and already widely disliked president-elect, Donald Trump. They are using classic Cold War dirty tactics and the defining ingredients of what has until recently been denounced as “Fake News.”

Government quietly launched ‘assault on freedom’ while distracting people, say campaigners behind legal challenge

The Government passed an “assault on freedom” while people were afraid and distracted, according to campaigners.

Campaign group Liberty is requesting a High Court judicial review of the wide-ranging new spying tactics in the Investigatory Powers Act.

That law was passed at the end of last year and gives spies – and a range of other organisations including the Food Standards Agency – the power to see anyone’s entire internet history, alongside other unprecedented rules. The Liberty challenge will focus on bulk powers, which let intelligence agencies collect up huge amount of data in case it needs to be used in future, meaning that people not under investigation have their information watched.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is more than a little depressing to understand that this legislation has come from the country which gave the world the Magna Carta.

Enough Fearmongering: Only One Democratic State Is Possible in Palestine and Israel

This is not an argument against the two-state solution; for the latter merely existed as a ruse to pacify Palestinians, buy time and demarcate the conflict with a mirage-like political horizon. If the US was indeed keen on a two-state solution, it would have fought vehemently to make it a reality, decades ago.

To say that the two-state solution is now dead is to subscribe to the illusion that it was once alive and possible.

That said, it behooves everyone to understand that coexistence in a one democratic state is not a dark scenario that spells doom for the region.

It is time to abandon unattainable illusions and focus all energies to foster coexistence, based on equality and justice for all.

Indeed, there can be one state between the river and the sea, and that is a democratic state for all of its people, regardless of their ethnicity or religious beliefs.

Washington Invented Hacking and Interfering in Elections

One can reasonably argue that Washington started the practice of cyber-warfare and has been a long-time practitioner of both regime change and election tampering in its relationship with much of the world. The Snowden papers indicate that NSA hacking of targets in China has been going on for many years as has routine interception of cell phones of allied European and other world leaders, including German Chancellor Angela Merkel and the UN Secretary General. NSA has deliberately sought to have the capability to penetrate nearly every electronic communications network in the world, frequently in real time, and has come close to achieving that ability under Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama.

REPORT: FBI SOUGHT FISA COURT WARRANT TO SURVEIL TRUMP CAMPAIGN OFFICIALS

A new report released today features both the FBI seeking to launch a surveillance operation against an active US presidential campaign, and the ultra-rare case of the FISA courts actually turning down an FBI request to conduct surveillance against somebody.

Though the four are not directly named in the report, it is related to claims in a dossier of Russia having substantial blackmail dirt on Trump, and that dossier centered heavily around accusations against a handful of Trump campaign personnel, including Carter Page, Paul Manafort, and Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, along with Trump’s personal lawyer Michael Cohen, meaning some of them may well be among the targets.lly turning down an FBI request to conduct surveillance against somebody.

In just 10 days, the radical left will attempt to overthrow the U.S. government… Here’s why they will fail

According to multiple sources that have reached out to me — including an individual who has infiltrated left-wing “revolutionary” groups in California — the radical left has convinced itself it has a significant chance of pulling off some variation of an uprising / occupy / revolution / coup operation on Inauguration Day (January 20).

It’s supposed to start as “protests,” then morph into “riots,” then crescendo in a kind of “mad rush” to occupy federal buildings and then somehow declare some left-wing commie nut job to be the “legitimate” President of the United States. Another source told me during a recent interview that some elements of the radical left are even planning on setting off bombs to maximize chaos, occupy emergency responders and even send some federal officers home in body bags. (Weather Underground style, get it?)

The Final Takedown of Trump Begins in Earnest

What follows is just one example of how much Donald J. Trump is upsetting the NWO apple cart. Robert Kennedy Jr. agrees to ‘chair a commission on vaccination safety and scientific integrity’ for Trump It ought to be obvious by this critical appointment that Trump is willing to take on a central pillar of the NWO social engineering agenda. In fact the super-vaccination agenda is as BIG as it gets in terms of controlling the entire human population. RFK Jr. is well known among health advocates to be a zealous truth seeker regarding the inherent dangers of vaccines, and especially of the overly aggressive vaccination regimens that young children are now exposed to. The bottom line concerning this extraordinary appointment by Trump is that he is showing a courageous willingness to go after one of their sacred cows. You don’t ever go after their sacred cows and expect to succeed given the current institutional arrangements which make up the Global Control Matrix.

CNN Challenges Trump Over Buzz Feed Fake News Coverage

As previously reported, Donald Trump blasted a CNN anchor as Fake News during his first press conference since the election for their coverage of the Buzz Feed Russia memos, which CNN has had for months without being able to corroborate, outrageously claimed Russia has been cultivating Trump for years and they were blackmailing him with a "Golden Showers" sex tape.

CNN has since responded to Trump, challenging Trump to point out inaccuracies claiming their reporting was matched by other news organizations and noted that claiming they only published “carefully sourced reporting about the operations of our government” which in fact, as shown below in CNN's own reporting is entirely false.

Get Rid of Social Network Surveillance

The bottom line is that if you can live without Facebook or other social media networking sites, by all means don’t use them. If you do decide to use them, keep the information you post to a minimum. For instance, the only photo I have posted on Facebook is more than a decade old. I log on once weekly to answer messages from my family. I don’t accept “friends” whom I don’t already know personally. If you use Facebook or other social media sites, I suggest you take similar precautions.

Scott Adams: The Master Persuader Scrambles the Frame

What was Trump’s biggest persuasion problem in the election?

Answer: His opponents did a great job of framing him as some kind of Hitler. Do a Google search on Trump and Hitler and you get an avalanche of comparisons.

It was sticky persuasion, and it still hangs over the country like a chorus of stale farts. I’ve said before that half the country believe they are living in 1930s Germany and the other half think we got a better economy and some free entertainment. Those are two completely different movies running on the same screen at the same time. So how does the Master Persuader deal with the second-largest case of national cognitive dissonance in our history? (Slavery was first.)

FBI Paid Multiple Best Buy Employees After Finding Illegal Content On Computers

As we told you last spring, lawyers for a California doctor accused of possessing child pornography claimed that the FBI had paid a Best Buy employee as an informant. Recently released court documents confirm that multiple Best Buy/Geek Squad staffers received money from the agency after telling the FBI about finding illegal content on customers’ devices.

• A California doctor is currently facing charges of child pornography after Best Buy Geek Squad staffers found what appears to be illegal content on his computer.

• Sworn statements from employees and FBI agents have revealed that the FBI paid multiple Best Buy staffers after they reported illegal content to the agency.

• Additionally, some Best Buy managers were named “confidential human sources” by the FBI.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I hate the notion of child pornography; but what I hate almost as much is the US government turning computer repair people into snitches about what is found on private computers.

This is just so...former East German Intelligence behaviour, I don't know where to start.

You Realize the Universal Basic Income Is Feudalism, Right?

What does the future hold for average people?

Feudalism.

And they’ll welcome it with open arms, convinced that they are embracing a smart, fair system that eliminates poverty. The greed, entitlement, and lack of ambition that seems inherent in many people today will have them slipping on the yoke of servitude willingly.

Here’s what I mean.

Have you ever been around people who say things like,

“I can’t afford it, but I deserve it…”

“Having [fill in the blank with a material object] is a basic right…”

“Losing that right is okay with me because it’s for the greater good.”

But the thing is, what we “deserve” is the right to pursue our dreams freely.

We deserve what we earn.
We deserve to be secure in our life, liberty, and property.
We deserve the freedom to go about our lives and decisions as long as we aren’t harming the life, liberty, and property of others.
No one owes us anything other than that.

NATO Report Blames Russia for Populism Worldwide

A new report from NATO is following a narrative trend which began in the US and has since spread across Western Europe, accusing Russia of being to blame for the rise of populism worldwide, as an effort to undermine NATO and the European Union.

This fits into the hysteria surrounding “fake news” in recent months, with the idea that Russia is to blame for the rise in alternative media outlets which are not as supportive of the idea of globalism. The “anti-globalism” idea positioned the defeat of Hillary Clinton in the US election as the fall of Western liberalism, putative a long-standing Russian priority.

Experts, of course, will note the rise of Euroskepticism across EU nations is largely concurrent with serious policy disputes within the EU itself, and that a simpler explanation than a far-reaching Russian plot is simply that many EU citizens don’t see the union as the panacea it was initially sold to them as.

US Imposes New Sanctions on Russia

Continuing what may ultimately be a very brief flurry of anti-Russia sanctions, the Obama Administration today announced a new round of sanctions against 5 Russian officials. Administration officials say that technically these are unrelated to allegations of Russian “hacking” of the election, though the timing makes it clear this is part of ongoing “retaliation.”

With President-elect Donald Trump taking office in a week and a half, these moves may not last long, with Trump aide Kellyanne Conway saying that Trump could well “reconsider” any sanctions imposed by the administration in the name of proportionality.

Trump has also suggested he’d be looking to roll back some of these moves, and that was a big reason why Russia did not launch any retaliatory diplomatic action after the Obama Administration expelled 35 of their diplomats and seized a pair of their compounds, with Russian officials saying they expect Trump to change course when he gets into office.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have several words with which to characterise these sanctions; churlish, childish, petulant, and completely fact-devoid, much as was the US accusing Russia of "annexing Crimea", while the US government blithely played the regime-change game in Kiev.

I have a very strong sense that after Trump is inaugurated, things will change for the better, in terms of US relations with Russia, and better US/Russian relations is not a bad thing at all.

ISIS, AL-QAEDA AND THE U.S. AIRFORCE WAGE WAR ON SYRIA'S PUBLIC UTILITIES

There are doubts that the U.S. was only watching from afar. The beginning and growth of ISIS was financed by U.S. Gulf "allies" which are subordinated to U.S. wishes. When the Obama administration had to start bombing ISIS after it killed a U.S. journalist the few bombs its airforce dropped were hitting an "ISIS fighting position" or an "ISIS excavator". That wasn't a serious campaign. Meanwhile thousands of Turkish tanker trucks were waiting in the deserts to load oil from ISIS controlled wells to sell it to Turkey. Only after the Russian President Putin showed satellite pictures of those huge truck columns to his colleagues at a G20 meeting did the U.S. start to attack this major source of ISIS finances.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As reported by zerohedge.com in January of last year:

ISIS: The 'Enemy' The US Created, Armed, & Funded

And as for the Takfiri forces; as reported at iranreview.org in 2014:

Throughout the crisis in Syria, the terrorist Takfiri groups enjoyed full political support of the United States as well as direct military, financial and logistical support from countries that are considered as US allies in the region. In addition, the Zionist regime of Israel provided Takfiri forces with direct training, consultation, and medical services, in such areas as the occupied Golan Heights, Quneitra, Utaiba, and other regions along its border with Syria and even inside Israel.

This is not just a US-sponsored fight to regime change Damascus; it is a fight against the Syrian people themselves, and their ability to control their own destiny.

The government of this country I care deeply about, my United States of America, has mutated into a war-crimes centric monster; and the hideous irony here is that it has accelerated rapidly on this path under the leadership of our Nobel Peace Prize-winning President, President Barak Obama.

And as long as I have breath, as a Christian pacifist activist, I have the moral obligation to bear peaceful, logical witness to the great evils my government continues to perpetrate, with utter impunity, and zero regard for the lives of the people against whom these war crimes have been committed.

Judge: San Francisco Can’t Be Sued Over Death By Immigrant

San Francisco cannot be held liable for a slaying by a man who was in the country illegally and had been released by sheriff’s officials despite a request by immigration officials to keep him behind bars, a federal judge said.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Joseph Spero dismissed wrongful death claims filed by the family of 32-year-old Kathryn Steinle against the city and Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi. The judge, however, allowed a negligence claim against the federal government to move forward.

Steinle’s shooting death thrust San Francisco into the national debate over immigration

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I'm sorry, this woman got assassinated by an illegal alien; and because of the city's "sanctuary policy" it cannot be held liable for her death?!?

As a native San Franciscan myself, I find this ruling morally reprehensible and appalling, and it definitely needs to be "kicked upstairs" to a judicial body with better horse-sense than that of a city which takes zero responsibility for a policy which got this woman murdered by an illegal alien; in fact, this case needs to go all the way to the Supreme Court.

We, as a country, need to take a good look at the many problems created by the "sanctuary city" policy, and chawk up the kinds of incidents like this it has created; unfortunately, by adopting such policies, cities make themselves a target-rich environment for the bad guys out there.

And with California's draconian gun laws, the woman was utterly helpless against her killer.

WATCH: PROTESTERS IN MEXICO KICK FEDS OUT OF TOWN, STORM BUILDINGS AS GOVT RAISES GAS PRICES

Hundreds have been arrested, and at least 3 people have been killed after several days of intense protests and riots in Mexico, that started as the result of a 20% gas price increase.

It was reported that some of the deaths resulted from protesters being shot by police with live ammunition.

“To deter the disturbances, the officers used tear gas, but the protesters did not withdraw and continued their aggressions, (and) gunfire was heard at the scene,” the Mexican government admitted in a statement.

President Enrique Pena Nieto is unwavering by the protests, and has promised to follow through with the price increase, explaining that previous subsidies enacted by the government have kept the price of gas artificially low.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Heard anything about this from the corporate presstitutes the last couple of days, even with the US's large complement of people with Hispanic and Mexican roots, to whom such news would be very important?!?

Thought not.

CNN IS NOW LEAST TRUSTED NEWS NETWORK AMONG VIEWERS

A recent poll of cable news network viewers found that CNN’s regular audience is far more skeptical of the political news they receive than Fox News fans.

In the poll published Wednesday by Rasmussen Reports, 1,000 likely voters were asked to describe their media viewing habits. Seventy-five percent said they watch at least some form of cable news each week, with 42 percent saying they most frequently watch Fox News, 35 percent usually choosing CNN, and 19 percent favoring MSNBC.

An even 50 percent of frequent Fox News viewers agreed with a followup question, “Do you trust the political news you are getting?” By comparison, 43 percent of frequent MSNBC viewers and just 33 percent of those who mostly watch CNN said they trust their political news.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Clinton News Network has earned this lack of trust, by continually and faithfully regurgitating everything the US government tells it to, in order to support its agendas.

What they do cannot ever be construed as critical, intelligent analysis, which gives people even the semblance of the truth; it is grade A, bovine excrement propaganda, fronted by some very pretty, and very handsome, faces.

What the article conveniently chose not to mention is that people are coming to the independent media on-line, to resources like WRH, with ever greater frequency, and avoiding corporate news as though it were the plague, because of the corporate presstitutes' longstanding history of lying to the American people.

And after the lies of 9/11, and Bush's lie that "Saddam has weapons of mass destruction", stated by the White House, and obediently regurgitated by the corporate whorespondents, I cannot believe them either, ever again.

NATIONAL POLICE UNION PRESIDENT SAYS ASSET FORFEITURE ABUSE IS A 'FAKE ISSUE' GENERATED BY THE MEDIA

Chuck Canterbury, the president of the Fraternal Order of Police, has been given an editorial megaphone over at the Daily Caller. Canterbury's using this platform to defend the pretty much indefensible: civil asset forfeiture.

Colloquially known as "cops going shopping for things they want," asset forfeiture supposedly is used to take funds and property away from criminal organizations. In reality, it's become an easy way for law enforcement to take the property of others without having to put much effort into justifying the seizures. In most states, convictions are not required, meaning supposed criminal suspects are free to go… but their property isn't.

Canterbury, who previously aired his grievances nationally over director Quentin Tarantino's participation in an anti-police brutality rally, opens up this piece by trying to equate factual reporting with current hot button topic "fake news."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A memo to Chuck Canterbury; civil forfeiture, visited upon totally innocent people, rather than the criminals for whom it was intended, is criminal in the extreme.

The media is not responsible for this, but is morally obliged, if those at the top of its corporate food chain have any moral responsibility whatsoever, to report it, whenever it is a miscarriage of justice, rather than the application of justice itself.

And if this reporting of real news makes you morally uncomfortable, Mr. Canterbury, congratulations; you may still have some approximation of a conscience which has not yet been murdered outright!!

Pirate Bay Offered to Help Catch Criminals But Copyright Got in the Way

The Pirate Bay is often portrayed by copyright holders as a site that has no respect for the law, but that overstates the truth. According to one of its original founders, when the torrent site offered to help the authorities catch some really serious criminals several years ago, the police were completely disinterested.

Disinterest explained.

The Creation of False News — Paul Craig Roberts

For many weeks we have witnessed the extraordinary attack by the CIA and its assets in Congress and the media on Donald Trump’s election. In an unprecedented effort to delegitimize Trump’s election as the product of Russian interference in the election, the CIA, media, senators and representatives have consistently made wild accusations for which they have no evidence. The CIA’s message to Trump is clear: Get in line with our agenda, or we are going to mess you over.

Stop us if you've heard this one before: Seamen spread over California

In October, three F/A-18 Super Hornet jets dropped an unusual payload into the air over the US Navy's China Lake weapons testing facility in California – more than 100 semi-autonomous drones.

The Perdix drones, 6- by 12-inch propeller-powered unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), were fired out of the flare dispensers of the aircraft and then self-organized into a swarm. Ground controllers directed them to search a nearby road and the 103 drones headed over and sorted out the best way to do the job themselves.

"Due to the complex nature of combat, Perdix are not pre-programmed synchronized individuals – they are a collective organism, sharing one distributed brain for decision-making and adapting to each other like swarms in nature," said William Roper, director of the Department of Defense's (DoD's) Strategic Capabilities Office, on Monday this week.

Fort Worth, TX Cop William Martin Given 'Ten Day Vacation' For Attacking Black Family In Viral Video- Lawyer Speaks Out

Attorney Lee Merritt speaks out in Fort Worth TX on 1/9/17 about the police decision to give officer William Martin a mere ten days off after he attacked Jacqueline Craig and her daughters, who had called police for help after a neighbor reportedly choked her seven year old son for littering. As any reasonable person can see in the original video, clearly this cop is an unhinged mental-case, a dangerous violent maniac, and this is a genuinely gross miscarriage of justice. I've seen a lot of bad cop videos in my life and even recorded a few that have nearly ten million views, but honesty, aside from the ones where cops murder innocent people, this video from Fort Worth absolutely took the cake.

JERKS: GOP Whines That They Want to Repeal Obamacare, But They Don’t Want to Stop Taxing Us for It

For what, at least six straight years now, the Republicans have been pissing and moaning about how much Obamacare sucks.

Buuuuuuuuut… now that the GOP finally has a chance to do something about Obamacare….

They are hesitant.

Republicans eager to scrap the 2010 health-care law are wrestling with whether to immediately cut off the tax revenue it brings in.

Tampa police arrest volunteers for feeding the homeless

Seven activists were arrested this week for feeding hungry, freezing homeless people in a Tampa city park.

Volunteers from Food Not Bombs were aware that their actions were technically illegal and chose to pass out food anyway.

The group often feeds the homeless in public spaces. Although they were made aware that their actions required a special permit, they proceeded with passing out food. The permit required to feed the homeless twice a week in a public setting can be expensive due to the heavy insurance policy the city requires.

Following Jerusalem Attack, Israel Seeks Detention Without Trial of Suspected ISIS Supporters

The security cabinet decided Sunday to use administrative detention orders, or detention without trial, against suspects who identify with the Islamic State group. The measure was at a meeting of the security cabinet following an attack in Jerusalem that claimed the lives of four soldiers, a senior official said.

Security sources told the ministers at the meeting that the measures were already taken in response to the attack. The measures included a blockade of the Palestinian Jabal Mukkaber neighborhood, adjacent to the site of the attack, from which the attacker is said to have driven the truck.
The security cabinet also resolved to demolish the home of the driver of the truck as soon as possible and to reject requests by the attacker's family for family reunification with relatives who live in the territories. It was also decided that the body of the attacker would not be returned to his family.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Watch this indefinite detention "slop over" against peaceful Palestinian protesters, who are advocating for basic human rights, and quickly.

First week of 2017: Israel demolishes homes of 151 Palestinians, almost four times last year's average

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s promise to settlers from the unauthorized outpost of Amona to enforce the law "equally" by demolishing the homes of Arabs is being strictly fulfilled.

The number of Palestinian buildings demolished in the first week of January 2017 is almost four times as high as the weekly average for 2016: 20 structures. In 2015, the average was 10 structures a week, according to the records of the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA).

In Area C, which is under full Israeli civil and security control, between Monday and Thursday the Israel Defense Forces’ Civil Administration demolished 65 structures in Palestinian communities, and seven rainwater cisterns. The Jerusalem Municipality demolished another two homes in East Jerusalem. Some 151 people, including 90 children, lived in the buildings that were demolished.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Apparently, Israel has more than 50 shades of serial genocide and slow death for Palestinians, and this is one of them.

Where do these people go, especially the children?!? What happens to the Palestinians who had lived in these now demolished housing?!?

Israeli witness in Gaza: No water, no electricity and children dying unnecessarily

Is that part of the procedure, this questioning?

“Yes. A request is submitted to the Israeli side and a summons is received to appear at a specific time for questioning.”

How does Hamas allow this?

“Hamas warns people not to provide any information. There are even signs on the Palestinian side of border crossings warning people going for questioning not to divulge anything, telling them to remember that the homeland is more precious than anything else.”

Doesn’t it make patients give up?

“Many people do. They are simply afraid. Even those who aren’t afraid aren’t guaranteed that they’ll get a permit. It can take months. Sometimes there is no reply at all. Many people die while waiting. There is also the issue of blackmail.”

Meaning what?

“Their travel permit is granted only on condition that they collaborate – information in exchange for an entry permit.”

You’re saying that the Shin Bet blackmails these patients? Can you prove that?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These activities against sick Palestinians constitutes slow motion genocide, courtesy of the Israeli government; and collective punishment, i.e., not allowing people medical treatment they desperately need, constitutes a war crime.

End All the Craziness Over North Korea

North Korea has ‘entered the final stage of preparation for the test launch of an intercontinental ballistic missile(ICBM)’. So crowed North Korea’s young leader, Kim Jong-un, in his New Year’s Day message aimed at tough-talking US president-elect, Donald Trump.

But there no need to squander trillions on new anti-missile defenses based in Alaska and California that may not work as advertised. North Korea’s missiles are designed to deter a US attack.

The alleged dire threat from North Korea can be better and more swiftly resolved by intelligent diplomacy and some calm thinking.

North Korea is a small, backwards, dirt poor nation of 25 million that has been under a fierce US-imposed sanctions regime for over half a century. Call it a North Asian Cuba. Without modest economic and military help from China, North Korea would likely have collapsed long ago. It remains under constant siege by the US and allies.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A memo to President-Elect Trump; in order to get negotiations going, the US government will have to enlist the assistance of China (remember; that same China Obama dissed while a guest of the Chinese at the G-20 last year G20: Obama warns Beijing against South China Sea aggression)

That may well take some time and a lot of finesse, but a working relationship with China regarding North Korea will be critical to get this going.

What we need here are trade guarantees, coupled with a firm quid pro quo that to get this peace treaty to replace the existing armistice, North Korea must end its nuclear weapons program, period, end of discussion.

It can be done, with enough will and hard-won, intelligent, moral negotiations.

The last thing in the world this country needs, President-Elect Trump, is a shooting war with China. Please have one of your military advisors talk to you about recent strides in weaponry, ships, and fighter jets the Chinese have made over the last decade, then ask yourself; can the current standoff with North Korea be overcome by any other means than war?!?

Thankfully, sir, the short answer, is yes.

U.S. ADMITS ISRAEL IS BUILDING PERMANENT APARTHEID REGIME — WEEKS AFTER GIVING IT $38 BILLION

Honest observers on both sides of the conflict have long acknowledged that the prospects for a two-state solution are virtually non-existent: another way of saying that Israel’s status as a permanent apartheid regime is inevitable. Indeed, U.S. intelligence agencies as early as 45 years ago explicitly warned that Israeli occupation would become permanent if it did not end quickly.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Israel has, in the 21st century, become a wretchedly apartheid, self-proclaimed theocracy with nuclear weapons, which means that a true and just peace in the Middle East can no longer be achieved.

The US government has consistently enabled this behaviour.

The engineering of the locations of settlers' compounds has been deliberately created to make a contiguous Palestinian state completely impossible.

All Palestinians can expect now is more serial genocide, coupled with robust expulsions from homes in which Palestinian families have lived for generations, and the seizing of more Palestinian lands.

For all the Syrian refugees the US government has admitted into this country, there should have been a robust program to entitle Palestinians to come to the US; because the US and Israeli government have, in concert, created a situation in which the Palestinians will have no home anymore, whatsoever.

Blogger is asked to delete info on Oregon refuge occupation informants

Federal prosecutors want a judge to order a Northern California man to remove all information from his website about confidential informants involved in the takeover of a national wildlife refuge in Oregon last winter.

In court filings Friday, prosecutors said the information posted by Gary Hunt, 70, was turned over to defense attorneys in the case pursuant to a protective order that barred it from being shared with outside parties, The Oregonian/OregonLive reported. Hunt has been involved in Operation Mutual Defense, a network of militias and supporters founded by Ryan Payne, one of the refuge occupation’s organizers.

“Public dissemination of the material produced under this Court’s Protective Order could threaten ongoing investigations and the safety of government confidential human sources, informants or others,” wrote Assistant U.S. Attorney Pamala Holsinger.

Moral panic over fake news hides the real enemy – the digital giants

Apparently, all these earnest, honest and unfashionably rational grownups are losing elections because of a dangerous epidemic of fake news, internet memes and funny YouTube videos. For this crowd, the problem is not that the Titanic of democratic capitalism is sailing in dangerous waters; its potential sinking can never be discussed in polite society anyway. Rather, it’s that there are far too many false reports about giant icebergs on the horizon.

If you can’t see the coup in progress, you need to keep looking until the message comes through.

Hours Before Florida Massacre, DHS Chief Jeh Johnson Boasted About Airport Security!!

Mere hours before an armed gunman murderered five people in a Florida airport, the outgoing Chief of Homeland Security 'Jeh Johnson' bragged in an official memo about how safe the Department of Homeland Security was keeping airports. "The FBI And Others Are Doing An Excellent Job Detecting, Investigating, Preventing, And Prosecuting Terrorist Plots In The Homeland"(!) He mentioned how effectively they keep dangerous loaded weapons out of airports! Johnson also stressed public vigilance (I guess that doesn't include the FBI?) and he specifically addressed ISIS and lone wolf internet extremism: He added that the FBI specifically is doing a superb job, literally as the gunman is on his flight to carry out the masacre! The very murderer who had TURNED HIMSELF IN TO THE FBI SHORTLY BEFORE THE ATTACK!
