FLASHBACK: Russia: Revolutionary secret warfare system tested with capability to 'switch off enemy weapons'

"It will fully suppress communications, navigation and target location and the use of high-precision weapons," said adviser to the KRET first deputy CEO Vladimir Mikheyev.

"The system will be used against cruise missiles and will suppress satellite-based radio location systems.

"It will actually switch off enemy weapons."

FLASHBACK:Russian Jamming System Kills All NATO Electronic Systems In Syria

Russia have deployed new electronic jamming systems that are able to blind radar, disrupt electronic guidance systems, and interfere with satellite imagery.

NATO have complained that Russia have effectively blinded their electronics in Syria, inside a bubble of 600 km in diameter.

Controlling the airwaves: Russia's electronic warfare systems

Modern armed forces are equipped with systems capable of disabling enemy equipment and weaponry by attacking their electronics, and Russia’s military is no exception.

Electronic warfare (EW) systems are not at all inferior to direct impact weapons in terms of efficiency, but unlike cannons and missiles, they destroy not the enemy's manpower and equipment, but its "nervous system" – systems of control, guidance and surveillance.

Such a strike can at once deprive it of all opportunities to fight – disabling electronics, shutting down electrical wires, blinding radars, and immobilizing combat aircraft and warships.

The fiasco of the bombing raid on Syria

The Inhibitor!
However, the Russian army observed the shots and transmitted the coordinates of the Allied missiles to the Syrian Arab Army in real time, in order to allow the Syrians to destroy them. Besides this, when the Syrians became swamped by the number of allied missiles, the Russian army deployed its system for inhibiting the commands and controls of NATO, which paralysed most of their launchers.

The most that we know for certain is that a French plane was unable to fire one of its missiles, and was obliged to jettison it out to sea without triggering it [9], and that two French multi-mission frigates suffered a computer failure and were unable to fire their naval Cruise missiles [10] — these are symptoms that are well known by anyone who has had to face up to the Russian inhibitor weapon.

NASA scraps a lunar surface mission — just as it’s supposed to focus on a Moon return

NASA is pulling the plug on its only planned robotic mission to the Moon’s surface. The space agency has reportedly canceled its Resource Prospector — a small rover that was designed to excavate materials such as hydrogen, oxygen, and water from the lunar poles. The move has angered many lunar scientists, and now they’re calling on NASA’s new administrator to keep the program alive, claiming it’s a crucial mission to help return humans back to the Moon.

‘What about the Israeli army killing unarmed Palestinian civilians?’ – Loach attacks Belgian PM

In his rebuttal at the hastily-convened press conference, Loach seemed to questioned Michel’s understanding of international law when it comes to the issue of Israel/Palestine, suggesting that the Belgian PM is conflating criticism of Israel with anti-Semitism.

The film director, a passionate supporter of Palestinian rights and frequent critic of Israeli state policies, asked: “Mr Michel is a lawyer, did he wonder about Israel’s failure to comply with international law? Has he asked the question of colonization of the Palestinian territories? Has he asked the question of unarmed Palestinian civilians killed by the Israeli army? Has he asked the question of refugees living under the protection of the United Nations? There are so many examples of Israel’s failure to respect international law.”

The Belgian PM is yet to respond to Loach.

Existing Iran deal 'not sufficient' to curb nuclear program - Merkel

German Chancellor Angela Merkel has said that the existing deal with Iran was not sufficient to curb its nuclear program, while Tehran’s influence must be contained.

“We are of the opinion that the JCPOA is the first step that has contributed to slowing down their activities in this particular respect, that also established a better verification and monitoring process. But we also think, from the German perspective, that this is not sufficient in order to see the Iranian ambitions curbed and contained,” Merkel said, adding that Tehran’s “geopolitical influence in Syria, Lebanon and Iraq” must be countered.

The Crash Of 1929: "Can It Happen Again?"

Currently, we are in a situation where, according to several metrics, the stock market is the most over-valued in the history of the NYSE. The central banks, with their orthodox and unorthodox monetary policies, have fed the asset market mania for nine years now but, currently, they are in a tightening cycle. Moreover, the global economy is in a risk of a dramatic slowdown. This indicates that the main components of the crash of 1929: an over-valued stock market, a central bank tightening cycle (higher interest rates) and a slowing economy are almost all present in the US. We will thus soon know how well the history rhymes.

Latin Mass Priest Slaps Down "Annoying, Arrogant" Parkland "Revolutionaries" In 'Idolization of Youth" Homily

My favorite Catholic Latin mass priest hits another one out of the park. He mentions Parkland students Hogg and Gonzales by name. The homily summary states, in part, "In this crazy modern world in which we live- in these revolutionary times- everything has been turned upside down, for we are now told that the young should lead, guide, and teach the old. The immature are now expected to provide the example for the mature. The young should not listen, but rather should speak out and not be silenced, for they are now the modern voice of wisdom. But it's interesting to note that the young leading others is actually seen as a curse in the Holy Bible. The prophet Isaiah states that the good Lord would punish Israel by having the young in positions of power: And I will give children to be their princes, and weak effeminate ones shall rule over them- the young shall rise up against the old, and the dishonorable against the honorable."

Gold Leaving US Vaults: Signs of Upcoming Currency War and Armed Conflict

An armed conflict with Iran might be much closer than generally believed. The nuclear deal has been honored, to everyone’s satisfaction but to Washington’s chagrin. Iran undoubtedly has no military capability that would be a threat to the US. It has never been responsible for any terrorist acts committed abroad or things like that. But it has done something unforgivable in the eyes of the US. It has threatened the USD. That’s what Washington cannot accept, because if it does not support the dollar, there will be problems financing the US government’s huge federal debt. A war with Iran would eliminate the largest non-USD oil exporter. One thing leads to another. The gold repatriations are a precursor to a currency war and armed conflict. That’s what drives US foreign policy.

It’s “open season” on vaccinating pregnant women with toxic, harmful substances confirmed present in many vaccines

Everybody knows that when you’re pregnant you don’t drink coffee, smoke cigarettes or take pain medications, right? And no matter how tempting that glass of wine might look, as a conscientious mom-to-be you wouldn’t think of drinking alcohol during pregnancy. For a mother, the responsibilities of parenting start from the second she finds out she’s pregnant, and most moms take that responsibility very seriously, doing all they can to protect their babies.

Why is it, then, that mothers who are admonished not to take anything stronger than Paracetamol during pregnancy are also advised to get toxic vaccines? The Centers for Disease Control has long recommended that pregnant women be vaccinated against the flu, for example, and yet one of their own studies recently confirmed an alarming link between spontaneous miscarriages and the influenza vaccine.

Popular Mechanics Weighs In: What Happens to a Cruise Missile Captured by the Russians

A fate worse than death awaits military hardware recovered intact on the battlefield.

The debris shown is far from conclusive evidence, so we can't take Rudskoy's claim at face value. But for the sake of argument, let’s assume the Russians did capture significant parts of a long-range cruise missile including Tomahawks. What could its engineers do with the remains?

Reverse Engineering
Any missile fired at an enemy is, by definition, considered expendable and designed to not reveal too many secrets if it malfunctions and lands intact. But there are some pieces of hardware within a modern missile that a clever enemy could exploit.

Waffle House shooting hero James Shaw Jr. raises $165,000 for victims

Just hours after he pried a rifle from a gunman who'd opened fire at a Waffle House in Tennessee, James Shaw Jr. launched a fundraiser to help the victims' families.

That GoFundMe campaign by Thursday afternoon had raked in just under $165,000 -- 11 times its goal -- since the attack Sunday left four people dead.

Meantime, the Antioch, Tennessee, restaurant has pledged to donate all its proceeds for the next month to the families of the deceased and living victims.
And a New York man launched an online fundraiser to benefit Shaw that had raised $175,000 from more than 5,500 donors.

Tennessee lawmakers this week also paid tribute to Shaw, 29, for his heroism and his compassion for the victims. The state General Assembly officially recognized his heroism, along with his "penchant for honesty," in a joint resolution.

Cuban sonic attacks: Likely winner of ‘US Lie of the Decade’

I can’t think of another story I’ve reported on which was so completely, 100% devoid of facts….

The allegations of Cuban “sonic attacks” are a complete and total joke. If you believe one iota of this scandalous insult to human honesty and decency – you are dangerously gullible.

Why are only White workers in the US and Canadian embassies reporting health problems, when Cubans act as embassy guards, janitors, etc.? Are injurious sound waves racist?

I talked to Cubans guarding the abandoned Canadian embassy: they said their health is totally fine. The US embassy is in a densely-populated area – hundreds of locals should have been impacted, but nobody has reported any problems.

Scientists of all nationalities have declared: the idea that imperceptible sonic waves can cause brain damage is against the laws of acoustic physics. Scientists are entirely too charitable when they attribute as “mass hysteria” the self-reported and unproven “physical affects”.

George Washington student Senate passes divestment resolution as intimidation campaign continues

After being delayed a week because of threats to their safety, the George Washington University (GW) student Senate overwhelmingly passed a resolution to divest from nine companies known to be complicit in Israel’s violations of Palestinian human rights.

Around 1 a.m early Tuesday morning, by a vote of 18 to 6 with 6 abstentions, resolution SR-S18-21: The Protection of Palestinian Human Rights Act passed, making George Washington the second university in just a week to pass a divestment resolution. Barnard College’s student body voted in favor of a similar resolution by a record breaking margin in a campus-wide referendum on April 18.

The GW resolution, sponsored by student Senator Josh Gomez, along with Eden Vitoff, Jessica Martinez and Shaheera Jalil Albasit, calls on the university to divest from the following companies: Boeing, Lockheed Martin, Elbit Systems Ltd., Caterpillar Inc., CEMEX, General Electric, Northrop Grumman, Raytheon and Motorola Solutions, Inc.

The Pentagon is moving away from the war on terror, choosing instead to primarily focus on deterring “strategic competitors” China and Russia, U.S. Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis stressed while testifying before a Senate panel on Thursday.
Mattis told the Senate Armed Services Committee via written testimony:

The global situation is sobering. Russia is modernizing its full range of nuclear systems while espousing a theory of nuclear escalation in military conflict. China, too, is modernizing and expanding its already considerable nuclear forces, pursuing entirely new capabilities. China is also modernizing its conventional military forces to a degree that will challenge U.S. military superiority.

‘Stop bombing planet A’: Macron’s climate change speech slammed online

French President Emmanuel Macron defiantly told US Congress, Wednesday, “there is no planet B,” generally amassing gushing praise from the MSM. Others, however, took Macron to task, pointing out his alleged hypocrisy.
The statement was made as Macron addressed Congress on climate change, taking aim at Trump’s decision to pull the US out of the Paris agreement.

However, some social media users offered a more skeptical reception to the speech and were quick to draw attention to the French president’s hypocrisy.

“So stop bombing Planet A,” was the hard-hitting rebuke from one Twitter user. Earlier this month France joined the US and the UK in launching airstrikes on Syria in response to an alleged chemical weapons attack on the town of Douma. Macron said at the time he had proof that the Syrian government was responsible for the alleged attack.

Norwegian Businessman Alleges Entrepreneurs Get 'Pressed' to Spy on Russia

Atle Berge, the director of the concrete manufacturer Ølen Betong, who was arrested by Russia's security service FSB and banned from the country for 10 years, has accused the Norwegian intelligence service (E-tjenesten) for corrupting his business in the neighbor country, national broadcaster NRK reported.

The Chinese Air Force has stated that the country’s fighter jets, reconnaissance planes and bombers have taken part in “combat drills” around Taiwan as part of a series of exercises “to strengthen its capacity to safeguard national sovereignty and territorial integrity.”

Speaking at a monthly press conference, Defense Ministry spokesman Wu Qian said that the Chinese military had introduced into service the DF-26 intermediate range ballistic missiles, dubbed “Guam killer” in Chinese media for its ability to attack the US naval base in the Pacific Ocean both with a conventional or nuclear weapon.

“The series of operations we are carrying out is directed against Taiwan independence forces and activities in the island. Their purpose is to prevent that the Taiwan independence forces’ plot damages the welfare of the Taiwanese people. If the independence forces continue to wantonly take rash actions, we will take further action,” Qian said.

French President Emmanuel Macron wrapped up his three-day visit to the United States with a ominous forecast: that US President Donald Trump will rescind his country’s nuclear agreement with Iran. Radio Sputnik’s Loud & Clear was joined by Catherine Shakdam, a Middle East analyst, Thursday to talk about what the move could mean.

Macron and Trump agreed that any deal with Iran should control Iran's influence in the Middle East and and should prevent Iran from engaging in nuclear activities in the longer term, but the French leader still wasn't able to convince Trump to keep the deal, reportedly a top priority of his visit.

"My view is… that he will get rid of this deal on his own, for domestic reasons," Macron said of the Obama-era pact with the Islamic Republic that was also signed by Germany, the UK China and Russia, plus France.

Donald Trump could meet Theresa May and the Queen outside London to stop mass protests overshadowing his first visit as President.

Officials are looking at whether to stage some or all of the July 13 trip away from the capital amid fears of violent demonstrations.

Mr Trump will hold talks with Mrs May, in a boost for the special relationship, officials confirmed yesterday.

But his opponents immediately announced plans to take to the streets in protest, with tens of thousands pledging to attend events.

As a result the US President could be kept out of London. Instead, he may meet the Queen or other royals in either Scotland or Windsor – although it will not be a state visit.

On Thursday morning, President Donald Trump called into Fox & Friends and went on such a rant that even the show’s conservative hosts seemed startled. “You look at the corruption at the top of the FBI, it’s a disgrace,” he said. “And our Justice Department—which I try and stay away from, but at some point I won’t—our Justice Department should be looking at that kind of stuff, not the nonsense of collusion with Russia.” As if to protect Trump from further embarrassment, Brian Kilmeade cut the interview short by saying, “We’d talk to you all day but it looks like you have a million things to do.”

Thomas Jefferson and the Troll Army

Mr. Thomas Jefferson speculated that if we had a well-informed populace, there would be no need for a government ---- and he was right.

The only problem is that first a populace has to be well-educated, which ours is not. Even those we consider to be educated --- doctors, lawyers, and university professors --- are very narrowly trained, and not what would be called "educated" in any former era.

I have asked hundreds of lawyers where law comes from and after four years of Law School --- they don't have a clue. That's tragic --- both from a moral and a practical standpoint. It makes them incompetent lawyers and unfeeling men.

This is not our fault. We have spent trillions of dollars on schools and education and been cheated --- as on so many other occasions --- by those who pretended to be experts. The question remains--- experts in what?

Certainly not education.

Sessions: Mueller probe has taken on 'life of its own'

Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Thursday defended his decision not to appoint a second special counsel to investigate alleged bias in the Justice Department, saying the current probe into Russia's election meddling has already taken "on a life of its own."

Asked by a House Appropriations panel about GOP accusations of surveillance abuse, Sessions told lawmakers that the Robert Mueller probe proved that it was a bad idea to appoint special counsels "willy-nilly."

“I do not think we need to willy-nilly appoint special counsels,” Sessions said. “As we can see, it can really take on a life of its own.”
He added that the Department of Justice (DOJ) needs to “be disciplined and stay within our classical procedure and rules” before opening further investigations.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Trump needs to fire Sessions and Mueller and appoint Larry Klayman as AG.

Were humans to blame for a massive earthquake in South Korea? 5.5 magnitude tremor that injured nearly 100 people was caused by fracking, say scientists

Humans may be to blame for the second most damaging earthquake in South Korea's history.

The quake hit the south-eastern city of Pohang on 15 November, injuring nearly 100 people, temporarily leaving 1,500 homeless, and causing millions in damage.

Two investigations have now concluded the 5.5-magnitude tremor was caused by an experimental fracking plant injecting water deep underground.

The 'alarming' results could change the way we assess the risks of fracking.

EU agrees to BAN the world's most widely used pesticides after scientists confirm they do harm bees

European Union member states have decided on a ban on the outdoor use of 'neonicotinoid' pesticides after an assessment by the European Food Safety Authority (Efsa) confirmed in February the dangers they posed to bees.

Use of the three pesticides is already restricted in the European Union on crops such as oil seed rape, because of the concerns they have 'sub-lethal' effects such as harming the bees' ability to forage and form colonies.

Member states have now endorsed proposals by the European Commission to completely ban the outdoor uses of the three active substances, meaning they can only be used in greenhouses.

‘World must not stand by idly as Ukraine glorifies Nazism at govt level’

The West cannot stand aside as Kiev promotes neo-Nazism, turning a blind eye to radicals destroying a Roma camp or holding a painting contest to celebrate a Nazi SS division, Israeli political analyst Avigdor Eskin told RT.

The Education Department of the western Ukrainian city of Lvov announced a painting contest for teenagers to commemorate local volunteers of the 1st Galician Division, a Nazi SS fighting unit that committed atrocities against Jews and communists and pledged allegiance to Adolf Hitler. The contest leaflet called on participants to submit their works by April 20, promising prize money for the top three.

In ‘Tremendous’ Steps Toward Peace, North and South Korea Vow to End War and Pursue a Nuclear-Free Peninsula

In a historic meeting on Friday that sparked hope of lasting peace on the Korean Peninsula after decades of hostilities, North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and South Korean President Moon Jae-in embraced at the border village of Panmunjom and agreed to work toward bringing an official end to the Korean War and fully denuclearizing the peninsula.

My tree is bigger than yours: North Korean leader ‘out-trees’ Trump

In a historic moment on Friday, North Korea’s Kim Jong-un and South Korea’s Moon Jae-in were spotted shoveling soil on the roots of a pine tree. The pine tree was beloved by ancient Koreans, and the leaders’ gesture was meant to represent the peace and prosperity that both countries envisage for their future. Kim and Moon proceeded to figuratively plant a tree of peace, signing a declaration that proclaimed a “new era” in relations.

Everything about the ceremony was symbolic, including the soil and water taken from both Koreas, and the fact that the pine tree was sown in 1953, the year the divided peninsula signed the armistice which ended the Korean War.

The symbolism was, however, taken to a whole new level by snarky observers that drew parallels with another tree-planting ceremony – in front of the White House on Tuesday. US President Donald Trump and his beau Emmanuel Macron planted a much smaller oak sapling – and the irony wasn’t lost on many.

Island Of Fire

As we’ve come to appreciate with each passing year, World War Two was the most evil manifestation in human history. No other conflict even comes close in matching that war for its vast and unspeakable crimes. Mass murder of surrendering soldiers, mass starvation of helpless civilians, mass rape of women and children, assembly-line style torture in the tens of thousands, uprooting and expulsion of millions to certain death, the deliberate destruction of ancient cultures--these atrocities and many more add annually to World War Two’s menu of beastly war crimes.

If your score drops too low, who knows what may happen next.
