Police Stop Woman from Attacking Las Vegas Elementary School with Ax

North Las Vegas police officers arrested a woman who allegedly tried to storm an elementary school with an ax and threatened to “murder everyone.”
Police arrested 33-year-old Kisstal Killough after she climbed onto a chain link fence with a pickax in her hand, KSNV NBC3 reported. School officials noticed the woman on the fence with the ax and called police who responded quickly and took her into custody before she entered the school’s property.

“The woman did not harm anyone or cause any damage to the school, Tom Williams Elementary School Principal Kristie Cole wrote in a letter to parents on Wednesday. Cole said the woman was not associated with the school. Why she attempted the alleged attack has not been released by officials.

Envoy to UN: Syria Cannot Use Chemical Weapons Because It Has None

"Syria cannot possibly be using chemical weapons because it very simply has none in its possession," Aala told the United Nations-sponsored Conference on Disarmament in Geneva, Middle East News reported.

The envoy's speech follows the accusations of US State Department Spokeswoman Heather Nauert against Damascus, claiming that the Syrian government had used chemical weapons near Idlib's city of Saraqib. Accoding to Nauert, Washington believes that Russia was shielding the Syrian authorities from accountability for its alleged continued use of chemical weapons.

Earlier this month, the UN-mandated Independent International Commission of Inquiry on the Syrian Arab Republic launched an investigation into reports of the alleged use of chlorine in the Syrian provinces of Idlib and Eastern Ghouta.

The protestors vowed not to cooperate with the US troops, and warned that they will continue to show their disagreement with the US forces' occupation and disintegration of Syria in demonstrations and strikes.

New Orleans Residents Used As Secret Test Subjects For Pre-Crime Police Technology

By Nicholas West

The concept of “policing in the 21st Century” is not only the implementation of a range of high-tech surveillance measures, including biometrics, but apparently also involves keeping it a complete secret from citizens … and even from their elected representatives.

At issue is one of the most controversial aspects of modern policing: the notion that if police can sweep all information into centralized databases and let an artificial intelligence algorithm do the investigative work of making connections in the data stream, then crimes can be prevented before they happen — pre-crime...

US training EU armies to nuke Russia: Lavrov

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has accused the United States of hurdling international nuclear disarmament efforts by training European armies to use tactical nuclear weapons against Russia.

Addressing the United Nations Conference on Disarmament on Wednesday, Lavrov said the US military had deployed strategic and non-strategic weapons across Europe and was using them in joint military exercises with other European countries, including the NATO military alliance’s non-nuclear members.

"As we all know, these nuclear missions violate the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), and non-nuclear states plan and take part in the US exercises and learn how to use the nuclear weapons," he said.

For Yemen’s sake, stop giving Saudis WMDs: Rouhani to West

Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani has called on the Western countries to stop providing Saudi Arabia with weapons of mass destruction (WMDs) for the sake of Yemeni people, who have been suffering under Riyadh’s bloody attacks and siege.

Rouhani made the remarks in an address to a large crowd of people in the southern port city of Bandar Abbas in Hormozgan Province on Wednesday.

“We say to Europe and the world that if you truly care about the people of Yemen; Don’t give Saudi Arabia destructive bombs. If you really think of Yemenis, don’t give Saudi Arabia banned Napalm bombs, don’t give Saudi Arabia cluster bombs,” he said.

The comments came two days after Russia vetoed a British-drafted resolution at the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) that seemed more to target Iran rather than address the Yemen crisis. The failed document called for “additional measures” against Iran over accusations that it violated the 2015 arms embargo on Yemen.

Russia's patience with Ghouta militants not indefinite: Putin

Russian President Vladimir Putin has warned that his patience with militant attacks in Syria's Ghouta region is not indefinite, as terrorist groups positioned in the Damascus suburb continue to shell the capital indiscriminately.

After losing most of the Syrian territories in their control, foreign-backed militants are now largely concentrated in Eastern Ghouta, causing one of the deadliest stages over the course of the years-long conflict in Syria.

"As is known - in any case, we in Russia know this well enough - some shells crash even on the territory of the Russian embassy and trade mission. Are we going to tolerate this indefinitely? Of course, not," Putin said during a Wednesday news conference that followed talks with Austria’s Federal Chancellor Sebastian Kurz in Moscow.

"Bombardments from there continue unabated. On some days missile and mortar strikes reach 50-60," Putin said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Putin is ending the message that he is ready to act.

Trump Wants Joe Manchin’s Gun Control, Rejects Steve Scalise’s National Reciprocity Push

Support America,The Bill of Rights and The Constitution. I'm done with this fool.

President Donald Trump embraced Sen. Joe Manchin’s (D-WV) gun control bill but rejected Rep. Steve Scalise’s (R-LA) push for national reciprocity during a bipartisan meeting with lawmakers Wednesday afternoon.

Trump spoke of the using the Manchin/Toomey bill “as a base” to which other gun bills can be added, and then continued taking comments from various senators and representatives in attendance.

Trump shut down Scalise’s reciprocity push, suggesting the gun control package being pieced together would never pass if national reciprocity were added to it.

Unhealthy state of affairs: Three-quarters of young Americans unfit for military service, study says

The US could be facing a security crisis and it has nothing to do with the Russians this time. According to a new study, the majority of military-age Americans don’t meet the criteria for service – mostly due to health problems.
As many as 71 percent of young US citizens are ineligible to serve in the armed forces, research conducted by the Heritage Foundation in mid-February says. This state of affairs – which that the study describes as “alarming” – could soon lead to a serious shortage of recruits for the US military, which relies on a “constant flow of volunteers every year.”

New Nuclear Cruise Missiles Could Go On Navy's Stealth Destroyer

According to the Military Times, the Nuclear Posture Review (NPR) includes a long-term strategy that could equip the new USS Zumwalt (DDG-1000) stealth destroyer with nuclear cruise missiles. Released earlier this month, the NPR calls for the development of smaller warheads that the Pentagon believes would be seen more “usable” against China, Iran, North Korea, and or even Russia.

“In support of a strong and credible nuclear deterrent, the United States must…maintain a nuclear force with a diverse, flexible range of nuclear yield and delivery modes that are ready, capable, and credible,” stated the report, which serves as the first updated document the Pentagon has released about its perceived nuclear threats since 2010.

Tesla Roadster that Elon Musk sent into space could contaminate Mars with bacteria from Earth

The Tesla Roadster that billionaire Elon Musk dramatically launched into space earlier this month could contaminate Mars with bacteria.

Microbes collected by the electric sports car and its plastic mannequin driver on Earth could survive on the vehicle for millions of years.

If the car collides with Mars, bacteria from Earth could wipe out any alien microorganisms that may live on the red planet, researchers claim.

Webmaster addition: The car would be sterilized by the fiery trip through Mars' atmosphere. As for contamination with Earth bacteria, that has likely happened with all the landers and rovers we have sent there, which have NOT been sterilized since NASA rejected the Viking landers (which WERE sterilized) data indicating indigenous microbial life.

"Jared better start wearing his kevlar on his back," Podesta tweeted after suggesting that Kushner's troubles had just begun - referencing a widely mocked picture taken Iraq of Jared awkwardly wearing a bulletproof vest over a blazer.

"War Is Coming To Southern Lebanon" - Lindsey Graham Warns Israel Is Planning An Invasion

Along the Israeli-Lebanon border, it's about to get 2006 all over again.

At least that's what Senator Lindsey Graham told reporters late Tuesday at a press conference with Democratic Sen. Chris Coons - with whom he sponsored a bipartisan immigration bill that ultimately failed to garner enough support from their fellow lawmakers. The press conference was called to share details about a bipartisan trip last week to the Middle East.

Graham of South Carolina told reporters that Israeli officials made it clear to visiting lawmakers last week that the IDF will need to launch a military action in Southern Lebanon if Hezbollah continues work on a guided-rocket factory being built in the region - a factory that's purportedly being funded by Iran, according to Bloomberg.

"They’ve told us in no uncertain terms that if this threat continues - they keep making rockets that can hit the airport and do a lot of damage to the state of Israel - they are going to have to go in," Graham said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Where is Israel's incontrovertible proof that such a factory is being built by Hezbullah in Lebanon, using Iranian money?!?

That's the cover story of course.

What Israel wants to do, is destroy Hezbullah in Lebanon, because it is affiliated with Iran, and control Lebanon's resources.

It is interesting what Senator Grahamn chose NOT to mention, which is a massive US-Israeli exersise in Israel, slated for early next month, right about at the time Netanyahu will be addressing AIPAC in DC:

IDF/US Troops get Ready to Drill to Simulate a Massive Missile Attack on Israel The drill starts on 4 March, and ends around 15 March.

Were I a betting woman, and because Netanyahu is really starting to sweat bullets due to friends turning state's evidence against him in his corruption scandals, I would not bet against him starting his war against Lebanon any time between the 4th and 15th of March, because he will already have American troops in place to fight Hezbullah alongside the IDF.

Timing... is always key in such drills, and what they could potentially become.

Google head Eric Schmidt named the mastermind behind the “fake news” censorship agenda

Earlier this year, investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson participated in a TEDx Talk at the University of Nevada, during which she revealed that the origins of the “fake news” narrative that was pushed by the Democrats during the 2016 presidential election can be traced back to a non-profit organization called “First Draft.” According to Attkisson, First Draft seems to be “the first to use ‘fake news’ in its modern context.”

“On September 13, 2016, First Draft announced a partnership to tackle malicious hoaxes and fake news reports,” Attkisson explained. “The goal was supposedly to separate wheat from chaff, to prevent unproven conspiracy talk from figuring prominently in internet searches. To relegate today’s version of the alien baby story to a special internet oblivion.”

Pennsylvania State Dept. Sued for Hiding Noncitizen Voting Records

The Pennsylvania State Department is facing a lawsuit after officials refused to release records relating to noncitizens on voter rolls in the commonwealth.

An analysis found that there are allegedly more than 100,000 noncitizens that are currently registered to vote, according to a Philadelphia official's testimony before a Pennsylvania government committee last year.

The Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF), an election integrity group, initially threatened the lawsuit against Pennsylvania's State Department in December after officials in the state were unresponsive to PILF's requests to inspect the data relating to noncitizens on the state's rolls.

PILF filed the complaint Monday afternoon in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania seeking injunctive relief to compel Pennsylvania's State Department to allow the group access to the information.

This was not a glitch; this was,most likely, quite deliberate.

A Recurring Nightmare: Deployment of U.S. Ground-based Intermediate Range Nuclear Missiles in Europe against Russia

The plan was announced three years ago, during the Obama administration, when Pentagon officials declared: “In front of Russian aggression, the United States is considering the deployment of ground-based missiles in Europe” (the manifesto, 9 June 2015).

Now, with the Trump administration, the plan is officially confirmed. In the 2018 fiscal year the Congress of the United States authorized the financing of “a program of research and development of a ground-based mobile Cruise missile”. It is a nuclear missile with an intermediate range (between 500 and 5500 km), similar to the 112 Cruise nuclear missiles deployed by the US in Comiso in the 1980s.

They were eliminated, along with the Pershing 2 ballistic missiles deployed by the US in Germany and the Soviet SS-20 deployed in the USSR, by the Treaty on Intermediate Nuclear Forces (INF), stipulated in 1987. It prohibits the deployment of ground-based missiles with a range between 500 and 5500 km.

Mueller’s Comic Book Indictment Is a Threat to All of Us. “Controlled Explanations”

The truth of the hoax indictment is available, but it is not reported by the MSM. This website has reported the facts about the indictment as has Moon of Alabama and David Stockman. Even Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein in his press conference announcing Mueller’s indictment of 13 Russians told us part of the truth when he said at the 5 minute, 22 second mark that

“there is no allegation in this indictment that any American was a knowing participant in this illegal activity. There is no allegation in the indictment that the charged conduct altered the outcome of the 2016 election.”

Rosenstein goes on to say that the suspects are innocent until proven guilty in a trial, which, of course, will not take place as the indicted charges are make-believe and the US has no jurisdiction over the indicted Russians.

Is this the way the presstitutes and politicians are reporting it?

Webmaster's Commentary:

Fort Shafter Faces Major Task in Planning Korea Evacuations

Fort Shafter faces a huge challenge in updating evacuation plans for American civilians in South Korea should war break out on the peninsula, experts say.

Asia expert Ralph Cossa said estimates of the number of Americans in Seoul on any given day run in the 200,000-to-300,000 range, if not more.

Any evacuation would be "extremely daunting, and likely to cause chaos, even if air assets are available, but especially if they are not," said Cossa, president of the Pacific Forum in Honolulu, a subsidiary of the Center for Strategic and International Studies.

Adm. Harry Harris, head of U.S. Pacific Command on Oahu, revealed at a Feb. 14 House Armed Services Committee hearing that Gen. Robert Brown, commander of U.S. Army Pacific at Fort Shafter, and his staff had been tasked with creating an updated "noncombatant evacuation operations" plan, or NEO, for South Korea

US Special Envoy on North Korea Retires After Trump Rejects Talks

US special envoy on North Korea Joseph Yun, an advocate of direct diplomacy with the reclusive nation since 2016 has informed the State Department of his intention to retire on Friday.

Though he didn’t offer a specific statement on this sudden decision, it came immediately after President Trump’s most recent comments spurning direct talks with North Korea without massive preconditions.

Though North Korea has expressed willingness to talk, the White House has made clear that they will only talk if they are guaranteed that total nuclear disarmament of North Korea results before the talks themselves begin.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I can certainly understand why Yun did this; he must be catastrophically disappointed in Trump, and in the Trump Administration's hard line on North Korea, which most probably means that Trump is getting ready to greenlight a military action against it.

Remember: demonization of a country, plus placing harsh sanctions against it (as the Trump Administration did last week) is nearly always a prelude to war.

Speaking of which, also at antiwar.com, comes the following article, linked from wapo.com:

Trump’s team is floating an attack on North Korea. Americans would die.

It is foolish, and magical thinking, to believe that such an attack would not escalate, and spiral completely out of control.

Senators Look to End Yemen War With First-Ever War Powers Challenge: US involvement in Saudi invasion never authorized by Congress

A bipartisan effort by four senators is looking to end the US military’s involvement in the Saudi-led war in Yemen, with the introduction of the first ever War Powers Act vote to come out of the Senate.

Senators Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Rand Paul (R-KY), Mike Lee (R-UT), and Chris Murphy (D-CT) are forwarding the bill, which notes that Congress has never authorized the use of military force in Yemen. This should allow Congress to oblige the administration to end US involvement in the war.

The US has participated in the Saudi invasion of Yemen since it began in 2015, with US planes performing mid-air refueling missions for Saudi bombers, and US warships at times participating in the Saudi-led naval blockade which is causing mass starvation in Yemen.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This move is morally correct, as the US government and military have been colluding with Saudi Arabia in war crimes in Yemen, through participation in the blockade and providing aerial refueling of Saudi bombers,supporting the bombing runs which have led to the massive, indescriminate killing of innocents, including women, children, infants, and the medically fragile elderly. And now, we have massive cases of cholera and diptheria ravaging the land.

But as morally correct as it may be, the passage of such legislation may prove quixotic in the extreme, for several reasons.

First, the Butcher of Yemen, AKA the Saudi Prince Salman, hates the fact that the Houthi rebels are Shia, and believes that they are getting extensive assistance from Iran (which, BTW, can hardly be proven at this point, other than for a few Iranian advisors).

Iran is considered by Saudi Arabian royalty and government to be its existential threat in the region.

So, the plan is, pound the Yemeni people down to extinction, through the genocidal campaign Saudi Arabia is currently waging against it, then go after Iran militarily. This was reported at globalresearch.ca on 13 February of this year:

The Coming War on Lebanon: Israel, Saudi Arabia, and the US Prepare for a long-Planned Middeast War.

The basic plan is to invade and control Lebanon, destroying Iran's ally Hezbullah; destabilizing and regime changing Damascus; then attacking Iran, with US and Israeli military help.

Of course, there is one tiny bit of of the calculus which Israel, Saudi Arabia, and the US haven't quite factored into their plans, and that is the current Russian presence in Syria, and the Russian promise it has consistently made to Iran to defend it if it should ever be invaded.

And THAT... is the thousand pound gorilla, sleeping splayed over the grand piano, which is going going to make such coming wars.... interesting, if not globally devastating.

Trump’s Approval Rating Just Passed Obama’s at This Point in Presidency, According to Rasmussen Poll

President Donald Trump’s approval rating is now higher than former President Barack Obama’s at this point in his presidency, according to the results of a daily poll released Tuesday.
As of Tuesday, 50 percent of likely voters in the United States approved of Trump’s job performance, according to the Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll. On this date during year two of Obama’s first term, 43 percent of likely voters approved of how the president was performing, the same poll found.

Pelosi: "Mowing The Grass So People Can't Be Smuggled Through Grass" Better Border Solution Than Wall

In an interview with The Arizona Republic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said she had a better solution than The Wall to monitor and safeguard the U.S.-Mexico border. Pelosi proposed "mowing the grass" and more fences as a border security solution. She called it a "more serious structure."

"I'm not the wall's biggest advocate in Congress," Pelosi said to congressional reporter Ron Hansen. "But I do know that representatives in the House and Senators in that body from the border areas have some serious objections to to a wall because they know how detrimental it can be to the community trade, to all the other aspects of a border."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would say that this woman has gone stark-raving, barking dog mad, except for understanding the logic of Democrats wanting unrestricted immigration.

The members of Congress who champion illegal immigrants, believe that when they are able to vote, they will only vote Democratic, in order to keep a lock on the Presidency and Congress.

In fact, Mayor Rahm Emanuel, of Chicago, has gone one better than this on his Democratic brothers and sisters;

Chicago ID card would be valid voter identification

We are no longer a nation of laws; we have now devolved into a nation of people.

MAJOR BEX ALERT - Parkland Educator to CNN: Armed Teachers Will Shoot Students of Color ‘At a Higher Rate’

A Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School teacher told CNN that students of color could be shot at by teachers at a higher rate than whites if educators across the country are allowed to get armed.

During a Friday evening appearance on CNN, Diane Wolk-Rogers said President Donald Trump’s suggestion that teachers should be armed “horrifies” her. She then wanted to address “the white elephant in the room”—racial injustice.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The gun-grabbers are really grasping at straws to block arming the teachers. Teachers are not going to just start shooting students, but only people who are shooting at the school, which so far have tended to be white.

Texas Sheriff Issues Memo in Response to Broward County Deputies – ‘We Do Not Take Cover In a Parking Lot’

A Texas sheriff issued a letter to his deputies clarifying something that probably never should have needed clarification in the first place.

Denton County Sheriff Tracy Murphree sent a letter to fellow law enforcement that took an indirect but obvious shot at deputies in Parkland, Florida. Reports have indicated that four of Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel’s deputies stayed outside Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, hiding behind their vehicles while 17 students were being murdered.

Murphree’s letter made it quite clear – that’s not how we act.

“All commissioned Deputies, if you respond to an active shooter you are expected to take immediate action,” the Texas sheriff wrote, sighting the Florida shooting incident. “We do not stage and wait for SWAT, we do not take cover in a parking lot, and we do not wait for another agency.”

Grassley (R-IA), Nunes (R-CA) Pushing for Further Fusion GPS Investigations and Justice

We have a major problem in America with a lack of justice for the elite class who continue to disregard the nation's laws - as having been displayed in the 2016 Presidential election cycle - but now both Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) and Representative Devin Nunes (R-CA) are both pushing to bring about some form of action as a result of the foreign interference which occurred at the hands of the Clinton campaign-funded Fusion GPS.

With both Nunes and Grassley taking charge, there's much hope for legitimate investigations to take place into what may have been illegally obtained FISA warrants and illegally conducted surveillance of American citizens.

After the counterproductive efforts of the Federal Bureau of Investigation under the corrupt James Comey, it's as if the Statue of Liberty herself shed tears at witnessing the disposable efforts of the Bureau to cover up actual crimes committed by both Hillary Clinton and potentially several members or the Obama Administration.

Canadian sub on mission to bolster North Korea surveillance

The last time HMCS Chicoutimi crossed an ocean, the boat flooded, caught fire, and a sailor died. Nearly a decade and a half later, the diesel-electric submarine has deployed to Asia — farther from home than any Canadian sub in five decades — on a mission the Canadian military hopes will erase doubts about the vessel's effectiveness.

Though planned for more than a year, the mission comes at a particularly sensitive time.

North Korea's nuclear and missile development activity has spiked in recent months despite trade sanctions. International tensions have risen to the point where the U.S. is considering options that could include a military strike on the Korean Peninsula.

We got Bannoned': Trump aide Hope Hicks frustrates House panel on Russia

A member of the House intelligence committee said “We got Bannoned” on Tuesday, after a closed-door interview with Hope Hicks, a key aide to Donald Trump, as part of the panel’s Russia investigation.

Bloomberg reported that Denny Heck, a Washington Democrat, invoked Bannon, Trump’s former campaign manager and White House strategist, who refused to answer some questions in front of the panel.

The House is now considering whether to hold Bannon in contempt.

A Republican, Chris Stewart of Utah, said Hicks would not answer questions about events and conversations since Trump took office.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

JUST HOLD IT NOW!! Under the 5th Amendment, Hicks is perfectly, legally within her rights to not answer question.

And until Congress removes the 5th Amendment to the Constitution, neither Hicks nor Bannon has to answer any question due to the issue of self-incrimmination.

No one can, legally, be held in contempt of Congress for observing that 5th Amendment in their testimony at this point in US history.

The US Government Lost $1.2 Trillion In 2017

Earlier this month, the United States government released its annual financial report for the year 2017.

This is something the government does every year, similar to how large companies like Apple, or Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway, publish their own annual reports.

Unlike Berkshire and Apple, though, whose financial reports typically show strong, positive results, the US government’s financial statements are a complete horror show.

Right at the beginning of the report, the government explains that it’s “net loss” for the year was an unbelievable $1.2 TRILLION.

Canary Island Of La Palma ROCKED By Over 70 Earthquakes

The Canary island of La Palma has been rattled by another swarm of earthquakes. This new swarm reignites fear that the Cumbre Vieja volcano could erupt just four months after a swarm of 200 earthquakes rocked the island.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Cumbre Vieja volcano's west flank has separated from the main cone and slipped down several feet. This raises a real possibility that an eruption will blow off the entire side of the mountain, as happened with Mt. Saint Helens. But unlike Mt. Saint Helens, Cumbre Vieja overlooks the ocean, which means a major tsunami would be created... heading west across the Atlantic.

China using big data to detain people before crime is committed: report

Barely seven months ago, a senior Chinese official promised that artificial intelligence could one day help authorities spot crime before it happens.

In the country's far western Xinjiang region, it's already happening, with the establishment of a system that critics call "Orwellian" in scope and ambition, and which is being used to place people in political re-education.

Called the Integrated Joint Operations Platform, or IJOP, it assembles and parses data from facial-recognition cameras, WiFi internet sniffers, licence-plate cameras, police checkpoints, banking records and police reports made on mobile apps from home visits, a new report from Human Rights Watch finds.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have to ask myself; is the Unhinged Surveilled State of America quite so far from using this kind of AI?!?

The short answer is, not really.

This A.I. literally reads your mind to re-create images of the faces you see

Google’s artificial intelligence technology may sometimes seem like it’s reading our mind, but neuroscientists at Canada’s University of Toronto Scarborough are literally using A.I. for that very purpose — by reconstructing images based on brain perception using data gathered by electroencephalography (EEG).

In a test, subjects were hooked up to EEG brainwave-reading equipment and shown images of faces. While this happened, their brain activity was recorded and then analyzed using machine learning algorithms. Impressively, the researchers were able to use this information to digitally re-create the face image stored in the person’s mind. Unlike basic shapes, being able to re-create faces involves a high level of fine-grained visual detail, showcasing a high level of sophistication for the technology.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I see opportunities for both positive use of this technology, but also abuse; its use must be carefully monitored, and laws surrounding its use need to be carefully constructed.
