China and India Lead the Way in Greening

The world is literally a greener place than it was twenty years ago, and data from NASA satellites has revealed a counterintuitive source for much of this new foliage. A new study shows that China and India—the world’s most populous countries—are leading the increase in greening on land. The effect comes mostly from ambitious tree-planting programs in China and intensive agriculture in both countries.

He says impeachment efforts would STRENGTHEN Trump
Glen Greenwald’s tweets on Mueller report continue to impress
Glen is correcting deceptively reported fake news by the press

The Buried Maidan Massacre And Its Misrepresentation By The West

Authored by Ivan Katchanovski via ConsortiumNews.com,

The new Ukrainian government is faced with reopening an inquiry into evidence of an organized mass killing in Kiev that Poroshenko stonewalled...

Five years ago, the Maidan massacre in Kiev, Ukraine, of Feb. 18-20, 2014, was a watershed event, not only for the politics and history of Ukraine but also for world politics generally. This mass killing in downtown Kyiv set the stage for the violent overthrow of the pro-Russian government in Ukraine and a new Cold War between Washington and Moscow.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When this comes out in the open, there are three things the Ukrainian government, and people, will take away; first, that then-President Barak Obama was key to the putsch moving successfully in installing Poroshenko President admitted on CNN, that the US government was behind the Kiev coup; 2nd, that Victoria Nuland bragged about having spent 5 billion on this regime change United States spent $5 billion on regime change in Ukraine; and thirdly, to never, ever trust the US government on anything it says.

The Ukrainians have learned a very painful lesson on this, and I hope that the new President, Volodymyr Zelensky, understands this reality as well. And whatever the US government wants him to do, will have a "price tag" on it.

AMERICA BETRAYED - Giant GAP In US Border Fence West Of Yuma - And The Feds Don't Know? Trump Does NOTHING And Millions Are Heading To A Free Life Here

This is a video I made about the big 13-mile GAP in the fence just west of Yuma. This is a hot spot for the crossing of FAKE REFUGEES, where they just have a short walk from a Mexican highway to what they see as the good life at the expense of American taxpayers and to occupy land that many of them see as their own territory as fake indigenous peoples.

I know there are even much BIGGER gaps in the fence in Southern Arizona but can only cover one small part at a time.

FBI ADMITS HILLARY EMAILS FOUND IN OBAMA WHITE HOUSE

A senior FBI official has admitted under oath the bureau found emails sent from Hillary Clinton’s unsecured server in President Obama’s executive office in the White House.

E.W. Priestap, assistant director of the FBI Counterintelligence Division, made the disclosure to Judicial Watch as part of court-ordered discovery into the Clinton email issue, the Washington watchdog said Tuesday.

“This astonishing confirmation, made under oath by the FBI, shows that the Obama FBI had to go to President Obama’s White House office to find emails that Hillary Clinton tried to destroy or hide from the American people,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton in a statement Tuesday.

Julian Assange's Victory

Authored by Andre Vltchek via Off-Guardian.org,

Throughout history, dark and reactionary forces have always attempted to control the world; by violence, by deceit, by kidnapping and perverting the mainstream narrative, or by spreading fear among the masses.

Consistently, brave and honest individuals have been standing up, exposing lies, confronting the brutality and depravity. Some have fought against insane and corrupt rulers by using swords or guns; others have chosen words as their weapons.

Many were cut down; most of them were.

New comrades rose up; new banners of resistance were unveiled.

To resist is to dream of a better world. And to dream is to live.

The bravest of the brave never fought for just their own countries and cultures; they fought for the entire humanity. They were and they are what one could easily define as “intuitive internationalists”.

If you find the idea of living in a computer simulation that is run by unknown beings troubling, wait until you hear Bostrom’s latest theory.

Iran Not Backing Down: IRGC Navy Vows to Block US Ships from Important Waterway

The spokesperson for the Iranian Foreign Ministry, Abbas Mousavi, issued a statement on Monday that warned of “adverse consequences” if the U.S. ended their sanctions waiver on the Persian Gulf nation’s oil imports.

“Given the illegal nature of the U.S. sanctions, Iran has not and will not consider any value for the waivers granted,” Mousavi said. “However, in view of the negative effects in politics of these sanctions … Iranian Foreign Ministry has been continuously in touch with relevant domestic institutions while holding comprehensive consultations with many foreign partners, including Europeans.”

The Trump administration announced on Monday that they would be cancelling waivers to eight countries buying oil from Iran as they tighten the economic blockade against the Persian Gulf nation.

Mousavi said Iran will take appropriate actions to counter the U.S. move, adding that his government will make it public.

"I Did Nothing Wrong" - Trump Warns "Angry Dems" He'll Take Impeachment Threats To Supreme Court

While Pelosi is desperately playing down impeachment threats (along with Bernie Sanders), many on the left refuse to let reality sink in and keep pushing for this distraction from their lack of policy positioning.

The Mueller Report, despite being written by Angry Democrats and Trump Haters, and with unlimited money behind it ($35,000,000), didn’t lay a glove on me. I DID NOTHING WRONG. If the partisan Dems ever tried to Impeach, I would first head to the U.S. Supreme Court. Not only......

Returning once again to where the real crimes were committed: " All of the Crimes were committed by Crooked Hillary, the Dems, the DNC and Dirty Cops - and we caught them in the act! "

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Every time the Democrats double down on "impeachment", it demonstrates that they have, effectively, quit working for the people who hired them in the first place, to get something reasonable, helpful and responsible done, for We the People.

This is going to bite them in a very sensitive portion of the human anatomy in 2020. Tom Perez, you had better start taking a longer look at history, before you commit to impeachment here; and you had better start listening to the people who could flip their state in either direction, come November 2020, barring vote fraud, which we know is going to happen here.

Given the current numbers, even if the House impeaches, the Senate will not convict, which means that the Democrats will have spent millions more on investigations, which means that the money spent on this, will be off the table for other critical projects, like a crumbling infrastructure, and better help for our Vets.

Nigerian brothers say actor Jussie Smollett orchestrated his fake attack; will Chicago DA prosecute him NOW?

“O, what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive!”

That famous quotation comes from 19th-century Scottish novelist Walter Scott, but it is certainly appropriate today as it applies to the re-emerging hate hoax scandal involving actor Jussie Smollett, of “Empire” fame.

It seems as though he may have had a lot more to do with planning the hoax than originally thought.

After the FBI fabricated the Russia collusion hoax, does the agency have any credibility to accuse patriot group leader?

Throughout the “Spygate” scandal involving Deep State players loyal to ringleader Barack Obama, Americans were repeatedly told that ‘rank-and-file members’ of the FBI and Justice Department were solid, patriotic men and women who are dedicated to serving our country.

The problem, we were told, was just a few bad apples at the top.

But is that really true? We ask because, years after Americans whose judgment and ability to reason have not been clouded by Trump Derangement Syndrome found out the Obama regime tried to take out our duly-elected president, nothing has been done to those who are obviously responsible.

Worse, the FBI has now been unleashed on patriotic Americans whose only crime has been to step up and start doing the federal government’s job along the U.S.-Mexico border.

Trump crackdown on ‘3 stooges of socialism’ has 2020 thrust

On the 58th anniversary of the Bay of Pigs invasion, President Trump’s national security adviser John Bolton addressed a group of Cuban American veterans of the failed effort to topple Fidel Castro's regime and announced a series of crackdowns on Cuba and its allies.

It was part of a call to arms to fight socialism abroad, but it was also a message for domestic consumption — particularly in Florida, the nation’s largest swing state and home to large Cuban American and Central and South American communities.

Walid al-Shawa dreamed of a bright future when he was younger. Yet adult life has been cruel despite years of planning.

Starting as a child, Walid spent 10 years moving from one job to another. A permanent job was beyond reach in his besieged Gaza community, which suffered the closure of industrial and commercial institutions.

His future became decidedly more bleak when Israeli forces destroyed his home in March – just three weeks before he was due to get married.

Giuliani Lashes Out At Clintons: You Are "America's Number One Crime Family"

As Democrats continue to back away from trying to impeach President Trump for obstruction of the Mueller probe which cleared him of the underlying charge of conspiring with Russia in the 2016 election, Trump's attorney Rudy Giuliani is on the war path - and is now targeting Hillary Clinton.

Following Tuesday remarks by Clinton that Donald Trump would have been indicted if he weren't president, Giuliani hit back in a Wednesday tweet - writing: "I encourage Hillary to get very involved in the 2020 election. She blew the last one for the Dems," adding "She is working on a book called “How To Obstruct And Go Free.” And the sequel will be “How My Husband Escaped” a perjury conviction.From America’s number one crime family."

Rudy Giuliani
?
@RudyGiuliani

Webmaster's Commentary: 

While I greatly admire Giuliani's candor, I hope that he is sleeping in his Kevlar Undies these days, and has a great amount of physical, and psychological, protection around him.

As Mike and I found out all those years ago, this woman most probably has assassins on speed dial; from physical threats to the kinds of disinfo which can destroy a person's career, she has them all at her command, and will use any - and all - of them if she thinks someone is actually getting too close for comfort.

So I would say to Rudy, "please watch your back, your center, and all around you right now." I cannot say I like the guy, but I can imagine that Hillary would like to stop this guy in his tracks, if she could, "with extreme prejudice."

FLASHBACK 2017 - British intelligence passed Trump associates' communications with Russians on to US counterparts

British and other European intelligence agencies intercepted communications between associates of Donald Trump and Russian officials and other Russian individuals during the campaign and passed on those communications to their US counterparts, US congressional and law enforcement and US and European intelligence sources tell CNN.

The communications were captured during routine surveillance of Russian officials and other Russians known to western intelligence. British and European intelligence agencies, including GCHQ, the British intelligence agency responsible for communications surveillance, were not proactively targeting members of the Trump team but rather picked up these communications during what's known as "incidental collection," these sources tell CNN.

A Fly In The Ointment

Authored by Michael Lebowitz via RealInvestmentAdvice.com,

Many financial assets, especially those that are the riskiest, are priced well above their respective fundamental values. A thank you primarily belongs to unprecedented monetary policy conducted on a domestic and global scale. The vast financial rewards and temporary economic stability attributed to central bank actions appear to be blinding many investors to the longer-term consequences of these actions and the implications for their investments in an era of monetary policy normalization.

Accordingly, we discuss the proverbial fly in the ointment, or what might prevent central bankers from being able to successfully “manage” markets with their extraordinary policies.

Is the Turkish-Russian S-400 Missile Deal Sabre Rattling Among Superpowers?

Vice President Mike Pence expressed his dismay with Turkey's decision to purchase an S-400 anti-aircraft missile defense system from Russia, revealing just how much this arms deal is an existential threat to NATO and U.S. dominance.

“Turkey's purchase of a $2.5 billion S-400 anti-aircraft missile system from Russia poses great danger to NATO and to the strength of this alliance,” Pence said. “Turkey must choose: Does it want to remain a critical partner in the most successful military alliance in the history of the world? Or does it want to risk the security of that partnership by making reckless decisions that undermine our alliance?”

Goldman Shares Slump As DoJ Demands Guilty Plea In 1MDB Case

Any investor who has been following DoJ's criminal investigation of the Vampire Squid over Goldman's alleged facilitation of the massive $4.5 billion fraud at Malaysian sovereign wealth fund 1MDB could probably have guessed that, whatever the outcome of the probe, it wasn't going to end well for the bank.

Those suspicions have now been confirmed.

According to a report published Wednesday by the Financial Times, Goldman Sachs could face the worst of all possible outcomes in the probe, for which it set aside half of a billion dollars in a legal contingency fund during Q4.

To wit:

US justice department staff have recommended that a settlement with Goldman Sachs over its role in the multibillion-dollar 1MDB corruption scandal should include a guilty plea at the parent company level, according to people familiar with the matter.

Cohen Betrayed: Tom Arnold Leaks Phone Call Where Former Trump Attorney Admits To More Lies

President Trump's former lawyer Michael Cohen has backtracked in a recent recorded phone call, claiming he's not actually guilty for crimes he pleaded guilty to.

In a conversation with Trump-hating provocateur Tom Arnold, Cohen said that he hadn't evaded taxes, and that a criminal charge linked to his home-equity line of credit was "a lie," according to the Wall Street Journal.

Arnold recorded Cohen without his knowledge for approximately 36 minutes during a March 25 phone call, which Arnold provided to the Journal.

"There is no tax evasion," said Cohen on the call. "And the Heloc? I have an 18% loan-to-value on my home. How could there be a Heloc issue? How? Right?…It’s a lie."

In the 36-minute recording, Messrs. Cohen and Arnold covered a range of issues, from the legal troubles of former Stormy Daniels attorney Michael Avenatti to Mr. Trump’s affinity for the leader of North Korea.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why do the largest hunks of fecal matter swim so closely to those at the top of the food chain in DC?!?

It appears to me, at this point in my observations of those in the Bowels of Power in DC, that the higher up in station these monied people become,and the larger the chokehold they have on our financial affairs, the greater the resistance they have against doing anything remotely for the good of We the People.

Just because a country has "elections", is no guarantee that it remains a democratic republic. We are, at this point in the US, a kleptocracy of the highest order, of the monied, by the monied, and for the monied.

I'm tired of this; no matter who we vote for, there is utterly zero positive change. We are given the illusion of control, through our national elections, but this is nothing more than swapping out one "talking head" for another, who are completely in the sway of the corporations and military industrial complex, which rule this shell game, to which, in large part, we are not privy.

THE ETERNAL SHAME OF ZIONIST CRIMES

As of 2007, the German edition of Ilan Pappe’s “The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine” appeared, at that time in the publishing Zweitausendeins, and I held the book for the first time in their hands and read it, it was like a horror message – a message that made me to accompanied today. So the incredible crimes in detail before and get portrayed in 1948 after the establishment of the “Jewish state,” this incredible brutality in its mercilessness, just three years after the liberation of the Auschwitz concentration camp, shocked and left me speechless. I wondered how it is possible that a “Jewish state,” Jewish people, so brutal and forgotten history of another people, so the indigenous population, ethnically cleanse, drive them from their land and property, and murder humiliate could. Had they forgotten everything human, them was the last remnant, lost to morality in order to act so recklessly?

CNN’s Stelter: Trump Avoiding Correspondent’s Dinner Is an ‘Attack Against the Media’

Whingy CNN anti-Trump obsessive Brian Stelter complained Tuesday that President Trump’s decision not to attend the annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner this past weekend actually constituted an ‘attack’ on the media.

Despite the fact that the WHCD is a back slapping self-congratulatory monumental waste of time, and that the President should really have better things to do, Stelter was adamant that the snub by Trump was part of a rabid anti-media agenda.

Stelter’s CNN co-hort Brooke Baldwin teed it up for him, stating that "it is no secret the President likes to insult the free press but now we’re learning the White House is actually telling the administration officials to boycott the dinner celebrating the First Amendment."

"[L]isten, you know, say what you will about the press, this is an event that honors the First Amendment." Baldwin claimed, even though it blatantly isn’t.

Vietnam Demands Monsanto Pay Victims of Agent Orange For Cancer & Birth Defects

By Arjun Walia

Agent Orange studies were mandated by Congress in the 1980s. These studies were headed by Dr. Frank DeStefano, and Dr. Coleen Boyle of the CDC, who are now in charge of vaccine safety studies at the agency. Frank and Coleen ended the Agent Orange studies two years early, emphasizing that “no link” would be found between illnesses being reported by injured veterans and Agent Orange. The early termination of the study is what allowed the US Department of Veterans Affairs to deny any connection between Agent Orange and medical problems, preventing veterans and their families from qualifying for fair compensation. The Boyle/DeStefano team’s deception was outed by Admiral Zumwalt, who went to the President and laid out the science in a classified report (which has now been declassified)...

At this moment, the Westerners began to worry. Ambassadors of Western countries met behind closed doors with Zelensky and were unpleasantly impressed. It seemed to them that he was clearly too ready to go to populist slogans of voters, that it was necessary to stop the war and did not understand that the main task of the President of Ukraine was to continue the political war with Russia.

They were afraid that Zelensky would become a real peace candidate. Then work began with Zelensky. Intimate consultations with the US embassy led to a consensus that the US does not impede Zelensky’s victory, and Zelensky does not question the continuation of the Russophobic course of Ukraine.

The Second Belt And Road Forum: A Transformation Of The World Economic Order

From April 25-27 Beijing will host a second international forum on the Belt and Road Initiative and it won’t be a small deal.

The four weeks preceding this event have seen an incredible surge of nations and institutions joining the BRI framework beginning with Italy’s Memorandum of Understanding as the first G7 nation in March, followed soon thereafter by Luxembourg and Switzerland. Weeks later, China won another victory by consolidating billions in infrastructure deals with the 16+1 Central and Eastern European Nations who have signed onto the BRI. This particular forum was especially important as it saw Greece join the alliance changing the name to the 17+1 group. Greece’s official participation in this bloc extended the group beyond its nominal “central and eastern” geographical limits and the importance of Greece- whose Port of Piraeus and emerging rail infrastructure funded by China provide a key bridge in the Maritime New Silk Road to Europe.

Donald Trump has lashed out at The New York Times, Morning Joe, CNN, Democrats, and the EU on Twitter — as well as the social media platform itself — during a busy morning in which a new state visit to Britain was also confirmed.

As the president continues to gloat over the outcome of the Mueller report, Democrats are busy formulating their response. Mr Trump has claimed the report exonerates him, but Democrats see grounds for potential impeachment, with 2020 hopeful Elizabeth Warren the most vocal among a growing choir calling for that measure: “If any other human being in this country had done what’s documented in the Mueller report, they would be arrested and put in jail.”

"I think there is enough there that any other person who had engaged in those acts would certainly have been indicted," Clinton told an audience at the Time 100 summit, insisting the Mueller report, despite its failure to substantiate the criminal accusations leveled against the president, was merely "the end of the beginning" of what could be a beautiful impeachment – if Congress plays its cards right.

The Libor Mess Is A Symptom Of Broader Market Failure

Major financial institutions have made it clear that they don’t support SOFR, the Fed’s choice of Libor replacement. And neither financial institutions nor their regulators have a clear plan to resolve the need to replace Libor. No matter how dire you believe the Libor problem to be, however, the underlying problem of debt market illiquidity that the Libor problem reveals is many times bigger.
