Slow-Motion Plot to Dump Trump

Dark forces in Washington want him removed, things headed toward replacing him with Pence, a deep state puppet he erred in appointing as vice president. GHW Bush was smarter, choosing political lightweight Dan Quale, unqualified for any public position.

Trump’s hold on the presidency is shaky. On Thursday, he tweeted “(w)ith all of the illegal acts that took place in the Clinton campaign & Obama Administration, there was never a special counsel appointed!”

“This is the single greatest witch hunt of a politician in American history!”

Long knives wanting him ousted may succeed, removing him from office by assassination the way Jack Kennedy was eliminated, resignation forced on Nixon for the wrong reasons, or a first-time in US history impeachment and conviction, ending his presidency.

Senator's Bill Would Punish DeVos for Screwing Over Low-Income Students

Following the rejections, Tester and Republican Sen. Susan Collins of Maine (where the University of Maine at Presque Isle’s application was likewise denied) subsequently got 23 senators to sign onto a letter asking DeVos to reconsider the applications; the government funding bill approved in early May also included a provision that requires the department to reconsider applications. Collins and Tester even wrote to the secretary again this week. But DeVos appears to be "ignoring" these pleas, Tester said in a statement.

New Chinese Military Base in Africa Presents Security Concerns for US

China’s first non-domestic military outpost is slated to be finished by the end of the summer, according to Marine General Thomas Waldhauser, who said the base presents security concerns to the US.

The 90-acre naval base is located a mere four miles from the headquarters of US African Command, Camp Lemonnier, in Djibouti, where some 3,000 to 4,000 US personnel are stationed at any given time.

Under Waldhauser’s watch, the US hopes to keep tabs on what China does and does not do at the new base. Waldhauser recently requested an audience with Djibouti President Ismail Omar, to whom he "expressed [US] concerns about some of the things that are important to us about what the Chinese should not do at that location."

Harsh Cold, Not Russia US Marines' Enemy in Norway

Hundreds of soldiers from the US Marine Corps landed in Norway earlier this year to protect the Nordic country from the perceived Russian threat. However, they were faced with a more extreme (and real) threat, which they so far have no answer to.

US Marines from the Værnes garrison that took part in the exercise Joint Viking near the Norwegian-Russian border found their cold-weather gear unfit for the extreme Nordic cold and may be facing an equipment overhaul. The drills held in the snow-covered barren Arctic landscape helped reveal crucial deficiencies in the US Marines' equipment.

The Decline of the West Revisited

Over five centuries after the Age of Discovery, we all know a long historical cycle is ending. The Decline of the West is shorthand for a tangle of immense complexity – directly proportional to the ascent of the century of Eurasia integration, driven by China's New Silk Roads.

Every time I dig deeper into the Decline of the West, I have to go back to the roots. And that means – echoes of Stendhal, Keats, Nietzsche — a Journey to Italy. I had recently engaged in an extended dialogue with Machiavelli in Florence. This time, the French presidential election was looming – widely billed as the "civilized" West facing a crucial crossroads.

Mattis: We'll defend our troops

The United States is not deepening its role in Syria's civil war but will act defensively when needed, U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said on Thursday, as quoted by Reuters.

His comments came following U.S. air strikes against advancing militia backed by Syria's government.

"No. We are not increasing our role in the Syrian civil war. But we will defend our troops. And that is a coalition element made up of more than just U.S. troops, and so we will defend ourselves (if) people take aggressive steps against us," Mattis said, when asked about the strikes.

Earlier on Thursday, U.S.-led warplanes hit a pro-regime convoy in Syria that ignored warning shots.

U.S.-led aircraft struck the convoy as it headed toward a remote coalition garrison near the border with Jordan, said a U.S. defense official who was quoted by AFP.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Your troops have no legal right to be there in the first place, Jim.

Since then, various versions of the Clinton Bodycount have sprung up all over the net with many consistencies like Vince Foster and Ron Brown, 2 of the Clinton’s closest friends and confidants, and with many inconsistencies including various military and law enforcement personnel.

Cannabis Prevents Brain Aging

By Marco Torres

Memory performance decreases with increasing age. Cannabis can reverse these aging processes in the brain. Low doses of the active ingredient in cannabis, THC, has the opposite effect on the elderly, reversing brain aging and restoring learning and memory.

This was shown in mice by scientists at the University of Bonn with their colleagues at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem (Israel). Old animals were able to regress to the state of two-month-old mice with a prolonged low-dose treatment with a cannabis active ingredient. This opens up new options, for instance, when it comes to treating dementia. The results are now presented in the journal Nature Medicine...

US Syria strike 'caused civilian deaths'

A military source on the Syrian government side says a US air strike against a Damascus-backed militia hit "one of our military points" and killed several people.

The air strike late on Thursday also caused material damage, the source said, adding that this hampered efforts by the Syrian army and its allies to fight Islamic State.

The US military carried out the strike on the militia as they headed towards the al-Tanf military base in southern Syria - near the Syria-Iraq-Jordan border - used by US and US-backed rebel forces.

US officials said the strike was purely a defensive measure.

Marla Maples rushes to site of fatal Times Square crash and takes a series of SELFIES just feet from where teen died

The 53-year-old ex-wife of Donald Trump was at a reading of a friend's play when she learned about the fatal incident, and was soon rushing over to the site where a vehicle ran off the road and struck down 22 pedestrians, leaving one dead.

She also decided to take along her social media followers for the ride too, posting a series of videos to both her Instagram and Snapchat accounts as she journeyed to the scene, took a look around and reported on developments.

Marla, who in recent months seems to have taken over for her former husband as New York's most omnipresent personality, then took some time to pose for photos at the crash site.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I think the "selfie" is a symptom of our self-obsessed culture. I have only ever done one "selfie" and that was to show a reader who sent me a T-shirt that I was actually wearing it. But an entire population constantly taking and broadcasting images of themselves seems a little pathological; as if constant self-aggrandizement makes up for our society's many deficiencies.

The Democratic game plan is evident.

I suppose you can argue that it is not all the adherents of the Democratic Party who are intent on removing President Trump and presumably Vice President Pence as well from office but it surely is a large group of them in the Washington/New York /Atlanta Borg establishment.

'I don't forgive or forget': Julian Assange complains he has unfairly missed seven years of his children growing up due to his 'detention' as Sweden drops rape probe - but does not exonerate him

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has complained he has unfairly missed seven years of his children growing up due to his 'detention' after Sweden dropped its rape probe against him.

The 45-year-old said 'I do not forgive or forget' hours after Sweden's top prosecutor, Marianne Ny, said the investigation had been 'discontinued' having effectively become a lost cause.

Assange, who denies the 2010 rape claims, has been living inside the Ecuadorian Embassy in London for almost five years and has been granted political asylum.

This afternoon he tweeted: 'Detained for 7 years without charge while my children grew up and my name was slandered. I do not forgive or forget.'

Russia condemns America’s attack on Syrian and allied forces

Russia has responded to yesterday’s illegal US coalition airstrike by condemning it in the harshest terms.

Russia’s Deputy Foreign Minister Gennady Gatilov issued the following statement,

“Any military actions leading to the aggravation of the situation in Syria definitely affect the political process. Especially if such actions are committed against the Syrian armed forces… This is totally unacceptable; it is a violation of Syrian sovereignty. Of course, it does not help the political process”.

Joe Lieberman and the Three Amigos

"Charles Freeman Jr.’s withdrawal of his acceptance of a high-level intelligence position in the Obama administration was a national-security drama more riveting than an episode of “24.” The moral was clear: even a president who owes his job to a progressive movement in American politics could not support a longtime public servant who had made the mistake of criticizing Israel. Fierce advocates of the Jewish state, notably Sens. Chuck Schumer and Joe Lieberman and Reps. Eric Cantor and Steve Israel, played important roles in Freeman’s exit, while present and former officials of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee flitted in and out of the wings.

Mutaz Hussein Hilal Bani Shamsa, 23, died shortly after he was shot in the head by the settler who opened fire at a group of protesters. The settler also shot AP photographer Majdi Eshtayya, injuring him in the hand.

Shamsa was one of about 200 Palestinians who had gathered at the Huwwara military checkpoint, near Nablus, to demonstrate in solidarity with the mass Palestinian prisoner hunger strike that entered its second month this week.

Bernie Sanders Fails to File Senate Financial Ethics Forms, Again!

Socialist Senator and former Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is in hot water after missing the deadline to file his ethics financial statements… for a second time!

The first deadline was May 15th for the 2016 records. But Sanders, a big-government socialist who campaigned on more transparency in government, missed the filing deadline.

What’s going on here? Does it have to do with his wife’s FBI investigation, or perhaps alleged favors received from Team Clinton in exchange for cooperation during the 2016 presidential campaign?

Deputy Prime Minister Soraya Saenz de Santamaria made the offer Friday in apparent response to complaints by Puigdemont that Spain refuses to discuss his regional government's secession demands.

The government says it cannot permit a secession referendum as it is unconstitutional.

Anthony Weiner expected to plead guilty to transferring obscene material to a minor

Anthony Weiner, the disgraced former New York congressman and estranged husband of top Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin, is expected to plead guilty today to a single count of transferring obscene material to a minor for allegedly texting an underage girl.

Weiner, who turned himself into the FBI, is due in federal court later this morning.

The emails that prompted the FBI to reopen its review of Clinton’s private email server days before the 2016 presidential election emerged from the 2016 federal investigation into whether Weiner sent explicit messages to an underage girl in North Carolina.

Windows 10 S is crippleware

At least with Windows 10 S, you can run a few older Windows apps: Evernote, Slack, Photoshop Elements and Autodesk Sketch. But serious programs, such as Microsoft Office? Nope. Full Photoshop? Hardly! Full Autodesk? Don’t make me laugh! Heck, you can’t even run Office 365 on it — at least not yet, anyway.

This is not a small office/home office PC operating system.

So tell me, why would you ever want to run Windows 10 S?

Chinese authorities have described the success as a major breakthrough.

Methane hydrates, also called "flammable ice", hold vast reserves of natural gas.

The danger is that sucking out the methane hydrates buried in the continental shelves could lead to large-scale undersea landslides, which in turn could produce tsunamis.

?There's a ransom-free fix for WannaCry?pt. Oh snap, you've rebooted your XP box

Windows XP PCs infected by WannaCrypt can be decrypted without paying ransom by using a new utility dubbed Wannakey.

Wannakey offers in-memory key recovery for Win XP machines infected by the infamous ransomware strain. The fix can be used to dump encryption keys from memory. This RSA private key, once recovered, can be used to restore encrypted files on infected computers.

Caveats and limitations apply. Compromised machines must not have been rebooted after being infected, otherwise the crucial keys will already have been discarded from volatile memory. That's quite a big ask a week after the devastating WannaCrypt outbreak, especially since initial advice centred on turning off machines to stop the further spread of infection across corporate networks.

Free Syrian Army suspends participation in Geneva talks

The Free Syrian Army has suspended its participation in the Syrian reconciliation talks in Geneva as a member of the High Negotiations Committee, the group said in a statement. According to the statement, the reason behind the group's suspension in the Geneva negotiations is "the lack of clarity regarding the strategic vision of the negotiation process." The Free Syrian Army is the biggest armed opposition group that had earlier supported the High Negotiations Committee (HNC). Earlier on Thursday, HNC leader Nasr Hariri accused the Syrian government of violating the ceasefire agreement. Throughout the entire round of the talks in Geneva, devoted mainly to discussions on setting a consultative mechanism to deal with constitutional issues, the HNC met with representatives of local councils in Idlib, Homa and Damascus neighborhoods where opposition claims fighting still continues. The Geneva talks will end on May 19.

Officials at China's Ministry for Natural Resources compared the achievement with the shale oil revolution in the United States. Experts say that methods of using energy will undergo a major transformation in the near future. Samples of "combustible ice" were retrieved from the depth of one kilometer. In eight days, 120 cubic meters of this fuel have been extracted, of which one cubic meter is equivalent to 160 cubic meters of natural gas. Other countries, such as Canada and Japan, for example, have also been trying to extract this fuel, although to no avail so far.

Other topical issues of "export of democracy" were discussed within the framework of modern methods and technologies of social communication that have become realities of the 21st century. In the opinion from Director General of the Centre for Political Information Alexei Mukhin, modern-day democracy has evolved into an "export product" that some countries try to "sell" to others while deciding for themselves whether this or that country meets democratic norms or not. "This product has depreciated and even gone bad a little bit. People do not trust those who sell democracy anymore," the expert said...

Look Who Just Got Caught With Russian Investments... (Video)

Prior to the 2016 election, there has always been a double standard in this country when it comes to liberals and/or the mainstream media, but in recent weeks the double standard has been coming awful close to reaching a degree of such lunacy, that there will be no coming back from it once we cross beyond a certain point.

Keep in mind, we are only 4 months into President Trump’s four year-year term, and already the far-left has gone absolutely bananas about not being in control. Consider the following:

DAMASCUS, SYRIA (4:15 A.M.) – On Thursday evening, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) sent over a dozen technicals to the Damascus-Baghdad highway to reinforce contingents bombed by the United States Air Force earlier in the day.

The newly arrived SAA reinforcements will spearhead a drive towards the Al-Tanf border crossing with Iraq alongside the National Defence Forces (NDF), Hezbollah (Lebanese paramilitary), Imam Al-Ali Battalions (Iraqi paramilitary) and the Syrian Social Nationalist Party (Syrian paramilitary).

Azure Farms submits a tentative weed management plan

The local agribusiness boys are the ones trying to get the organic farm sprayed with herbicides. The local courthouse got over 400,000 emails from you good folks,but the agribusiness boys wont give up.

http://katu.com/news/local/oregon-organic-farm-plans-to-control-weed-i...

The organic farm in Sherman County has been criticized by neighboring farmers, who say noxious weeds are spreading to their ground.

A last-minute weed management plan filed by an organic farm may be “workable” if the farm managers follow through, a Sherman County official said.
The Oregon Wheat Growers League urged a “prompt and rigorous review” of Azure’s proposal.

“From our members on the ground, it’s become clear that even a casual observation of Azure’s property makes it clear that their noxious weed problem is severe and has been worsening for many years,” league CEO Blake Rowe and growers Bryan Cranston and Chris Moore said in a prepared statement.”

Facebook Adds Another New Censorship Tool To Stop “Conspiracies” and “Misinformation”

In the video below, Vin Armani gives an update about YouTube and Facebook’s latest attempt to censor content on their platforms. He discusses a brand new Facebook tool to further censor conspiracy theories, and misleading and sensational content. Well, that’s subjective.

Facebook posted a press release to announce the new tool, writing:

"We want to help people build an informed community on Facebook. That’s why we’re always working to understand which posts people consider misleading, sensational and spammy so we can show fewer of those and show more informative posts instead.

"We hear from our community that they’re disappointed when they click on a link that leads to a web page containing little substantive content and that is covered in disruptive, shocking or malicious ads. People expect their experience after clicking on a post to be straightforward.

The very same Liberals, Democrats and fake news media pretend journalists who are now calling for President Trump’s impeachment, were strangely silent during the 8 long years of absolutely jaw-dropping scandals and egregious lawbreaking done by the Obama administration. Have you forgotten the 4 dead Americans directly killed in Benghazi by Obama’s “leadership”, and then how he lied about a “video” being the cause? So in case you have somehow forgotten just how illegal and subversive Barack Hussein Obama and his minions really were, here are some stellar and actionable offenses in no particular order to help jog your memory.

International campaign is criminalizing criticism of Israel as ‘antisemitism’

For two decades, some Israeli officials and Israel partisans have worked to embed a new, Israel-focused definition of antisemitism in institutions around the world, from international bodies and national governments to small college campuses in heartland America. This effort is now snowballing rapidly. As a result, advocacy for Palestinian rights is well on the way to being curtailed and even criminalized as “hate.”

Expert: Comey Was Fired Because He Refused to Reveal Obama Unmaskers (Video)

While the mainstream media is incessantly harping on the theory that the only possible reason that President Trump could have fired Comey was to avoid any investigation into the ‘Russian connection’, we know better. Firstly, such a move would have practically guaranteed further investigations into any Russian connections, not prevented it. Second, Comey has more than once proved himself to be grossly incompetent, so incompetent that at one point both sides of the aisle wanted him gone.

In the following video, Right Wing News looks at the latest theory being put forward as the reason for Comey’s firing; he refused to reveal the identities of the ‘Obama unmaskers’. When the Trump administration requested this information, he tried to stall them out, dragging his feet in providing such information to the administration. And rightfully so, he was let go from his job. Will the left wing media report on this angle of the story?

US: Syria Restoring Its Territory Will 'Not Be Accepted'

As we reported last week the Syrian army is making progress in the southern desert. It is edging eastwards towards the Iraqi border and towards joint US-rebel positions at al-Tanf border crossing.

We asked what happens when these two forces come within shooting distance of each other.

The question is all the more acute now as it has become apparent the US believes Syria requires US permission to restore its territory. As The Telegraph reports:

The US has sent a clear message that any government advance towards their base will not be accepted. However, it is unclear how the special forces will react to any serious provocation.

You may have thought it would be the US which required government permission to set itself up in al-Tanf, but apparently it's the other way around. It must be that al-Tanf is actually in Arizona or New Mexico.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Invading and bombing a sovereign country, which has done absolutely nothing against the US, as has been the case in Syria, where there is utterly no declaration of war, constitutes a war crime; I wish someone could explain that to President Trump.

But as I indicated in an article I posted yesterday, President "Moriarty" Trump believes war is great for the US economy, as he is on the cusp of his first visit as President to Saudi Arabia to sign new weapons deals with the Saudi government, which will be used to further the genocide in Yemen, as well as ultimately bring about a shooting war between Iran and Saudi Arabia.

Saudi Arabia characterises Iran as its "existential threat" in the region.

But the Saudis (and the American military) had better be aware that should Iran be attacked, both political and civilian leaders in Russia have vowed to come to Iran's aid.

War against Russia, in light of the fact that the US military doesn't have the troop strength, the weaponry, the money or the manufacturing to win a convention war against Russia?!?

I really don't think so!!

On the surface, nothing much at all – the former is an Internet search engine and the latter are a couple of national broadcasting corporations with political hosts and commentators. If you dig a little deeper, however, it becomes clear that both the search engine and the liberal news networks have something in common after all, and it has to do with a vicious assault on the freedom of speech.

10 Signs Trump Is An Authoritarian Globalist Stooge

By Jeff Paul

Remember when it was a conspiracy theory that banks, multinational corporations and politicians are working to create a one-world order?

Now, not only is it obvious that this plan is well underway, the discussion has moved from crazy conspiracy to whether it’s a good thing or not. It’s playing out as nationalism versus globalism. Both of which are anti-freedom, by the way.

Ban Drudge Report And Infowars: “Information Equality Now… Stop The Hate, Regulate”

Net Neutrality activists held signs declaring “Ban Drudge” and “Ban Infowars” while calling for the regulation of on-line speech outside the Federal Communications Commission on Thursday.

“Information equality now!” read one of the signs. “Stop the hate, regulate!!!”

The protestors were taking part in a rally spearheaded by Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) in protest of the planned vote to roll back the FCC’s regulatory takeover of the Internet by reclassifying Internet Service Providers as “common carriers” under Title II regulations developed in 1934.

“Groups planning to attend include American Civil Liberties Union, the Center for Media Justice, Color Of Change, Common Cause, CREDO Action, Demand Progress, Electronic Frontier Foundation, Faithful Internet, Fight for the Future, Free Press Action Fund and the National Hispanic Media Coalition,” reported Broadcasting Cable.

It’s long been known that cannabis’ main ingredient can help treat pain and lessen the effects of and sometimes even treat seizures. With more and more studies being conducted on the plant, there will likely be even more cures found. And maybe, cannabis could help those who suffer from alcohol or drug addictions. Abstinence when recovering from a drug or alcohol addiction proves difficult, and many addicts relapse several times before becoming completely sober. But now, maybe cannabis can help those who suffer from chemical dependency.

Closing the ‘Collapse Gap’: the USSR Was Better Prepared for Collapse Than the U.S.

Good evening, ladies and gentlemen. I am not an expert or a scholar or an activist. I am more of an eye-witness. I watched the Soviet Union collapse, and I have tried to put my observations into a concise message. I will leave it up to you to decide just how urgent a message it is.

My talk tonight is about the lack of collapse-preparedness here in the United States. I will compare it with the situation in the Soviet Union, prior to its collapse. The rhetorical device I am going to use is the “Collapse Gap” – to go along with the Nuclear Gap, and the Space Gap, and various other superpower gaps that were fashionable during the Cold War.

Was Israel behind US laptop ban on Mideast airlines?

The ban affects nine companies: Royal Jordanian Airlines, EgyptAir, Turkish Airlines, Saudi Airlines, Kuwait Airways, Royal Air Maroc, Qatar Airways, Emirates, and Etihad Airways.

All of these airlines have direct flights to the United States and pose strong competition to American aviation companies, especially during the busy summer season.

Former CIA case officer John Kiriakou expressed scepticism about Israel's ability to obtain highly sensitive intelligence of this nature about ISIL.

"If it was the Jordanians or the Turkish intelligences services who have done that, it might make more sense because these organisations have a long history of dealing with groups like ISIL," Kiriakou told Al Jazeera on Tuesday.

"I won't be surprised if it turned out that Israel acted in its own interests to disrupt the Middle Eastern airlines business by throwing its own wrench into the whole thing," he said.
