THOUGHT FOR THE DAY!

"I just don't trust any of it. Every time I read something about how there's been another ridiculous climb of the Dow Jones, there is a part of me that goes, 'That can't be good.' None of this is real money. You know what I mean? It's not like there is actually more of anything. It's just ideas. When people are getting richer and richer but they're not actually producing anything, it can't end well." -- Louis C.K.

Follow The Money: BlackRock, Vanguard Await New Opportunities In China

While the Western world controlled the 20th century, the 21st century could be soon controlled by China.

Six of the world's largest asset managers, including BlackRock and Vanguard, are eager to do more business in China, reported Bloomberg.

Sources said these firms had told regulators they plan to apply for fully-foreign-owned mutual fund licenses after China Securities Regulatory Commission said in Oct., that it would allow overseas institutions more power over onshore ventures in 2020.

Fidelity told Bloomberg via a statement this week that it's preparing to file for a mutual fund license in China.

These big Wall Street banks see nearly $12.8 trillion of investable assets in Chinese households.

Though China's economy is slowing with growth rates crashing to three-decade lows and a trade war with the US with no immediate resolution, Western bankers understand that by 2030, the center of the global economy could be China, not the US.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That is, of course, is premised on the not necessarily strong supposition, that the US government won't order a war against it, to bomb it back to beyond the stone age, or try to "gum up the works" with some computer/financial sabotage.

Six Saudis Arrested For Questioning After Pensacola Shooting - Three Were Filming Attack

Six Saudi nationals were taken into custody for questioning near the Florida naval base where an Air Force trainee - also from Saudi Arabia - opened fire Friday morning, killing three before a sheriff's deputy shot and killed him.

According to the New York Times, three of the Saudis were filming the attack. It is unknown whether they were students at the base, or whether they are connected to the gunman.

The shooting spanned two floors in a classroom, according to Sheriff David Morgan of Escambia Country. Two deputies were shot in the ensuing gun battle and are expected to recover.

The gunman, identified as Saudi Air Force second lieutenant Mohammed Saeed Alshamrani, used a locally bought Glock 45 9mm handgun with an extended magazine, and was carrying between four and six more magazines.

In his last message on Twitter confirmed by AFP, Alshamrani wrote that America is a nation of evil.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The thing that is most hard for me to fathom, from a pragmatic perspective is this; why were the people surveilling me and Mike on line, not surveilling this guy's Tweets, from the moment he got here?!?

And who were the guys filming this assassination?!? How did they know to be there, cameras in hand, when this entire set of murders went down?!?

The Pentagon’s 36 Military Bases in Africa. America’s Growing Military Presence

On the international scene condemnation of Gaddafi’s murder was a rare thing, and came from those such as Fidel Castro and Hugo Chavez – with the Cuban leader noting that his killing was something “which violates the most elementary principles of Islamic rules” while Chavez denounced it as “another outrage”.

NATO chiefs were satisfied, however, as it removed an obstacle to US control over Libya’s oil sources, a country which also has an extensive coastline along the Mediterranean Sea. One of the primary tasks of NATO is to safeguard access to raw materials and strategic localities. In June 2007 NATO’s then Secretary General, Jaap de Hoop Scheffer, said to a gathering of members in Brussels that “NATO troops have to guard pipelines that transport oil and gas that is directed to the West”. Another of NATO’s functions is “to protect sea routes used by tankers and other ‘crucial infrastructure’ of the energy system”.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Step 1: Destabilize the existing government, and break it through war, and/or /assassination if you must.

Step 2: Install a puppet government which is, at least on the surface, more "western-centric"

Step 3: Have your money junkie cronies administer the expropriation of that countries' natural resources, to which you have utterly no moral right.

Step 4: Wash, Rinse, and repeat to other, numerous countries on your "To Do" list.

Denied Entry to Gaza for Breast Cancer MissionA full training and treatment project was wrecked after Israel had denied permission for Philippa Whitford.

Israeli occupation has denied permission for British lawmaker, Philippa Whitford, who is a doctor, from entering Gaza to offer help for patients of breast cancer.

Over the past two and half years[1], I have been working with Medical Aid for Palestine (MAP) to improve the provision of services and treatment for breast cancer patients in Palestine.

Last year, I travelled out with the specific aim of setting up a project to enable experienced professionals in breast cancer care to provide teaching and training to local Palestinian clinicians working with breast cancer patients.

Since my last visit, I have managed to recruit a team of specialists from all over Scotland to join the project, which will help improve breast cancer care – prevention, diagnosis and treatment – for women in Gaza and the West Bank.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is unredeemably vile, on the part of Israel officials, who really want these women to die, rather than profit from advances in breast cancer care.

But you have to look at this from the larger perspective of the Israeli Government's "Final Solution to the Palestinian Question"; denying these women state of the art care, is all part of the plan.

Most of us know - or know of - someone who has been diagnosed with this kind of cancer, but have, luckily, been able to beat it, at least in a first remission period.

All women on this planet, deserve the best, most intelligent approaches to beating this disease which exist today.

US Navy, Air Force team up on new ‘Manhattan Project’

The U.S. Navy and Air Force are teaming up to rapidly develop a network that can link together Air Force and Navy assets during battle, an effort the Navy’s top officer compared to the 1940s program to develop an atomic bomb.

Adm. Michael Gilday, the new Chief of Naval Operations, told an audience Thursday that in order to take on China, the Navy will have to spread out and rely on networked weapons and sensors distributed over a wide area. But doing that would rely on a network architecture that doesn’t yet exist.

To be the most effective force, the Navy acknowledges it must be able to connect with Air Force bombers and aircraft, leading the two services to an agreement to join forces.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What stuns me, in reading this report, is that such a system was not up and running years ago.

How to Commit War Crimes—and Get Away With It

How to Commit War Crimes—and Get Away With It
FacebookTwitterPinterestRedditShare
How to Commit War CrimesU.S. President Donald Trump sacked his Navy secretary on Twitter. The main reason is that the Navy secretary did not follow Trump’s advice regarding Navy Special Warfare Operator Edward Gallagher. Trump wanted Gallagher to retain his position as a Navy Seal. Gallagher was accused of stabbing to death a wounded fighter of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS) in 2017; he was also accused of other incidents of murder (of a schoolgirl and an elderly man), and then of obstruction of justice. In July 2019, a military court acquitted Gallagher of most of the charges but found him guilty of posing with the body of the fighter who had been stabbed to death.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Chain of Command, is absolutely critical to the emotional health and well-being of the soldiers working under it; I really believe that President Trump overstepped his boundaries in creating the situation he did, then firing the Secretary of the Navy.

US House Votes Against Israeli Annexation of West Bank

The resolution was intended both to contradict President Trump, whose recent positions have been pro-occupation and pro-annexation, as well as to potentially warn Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu against any hasty annexations, something he’s been advocating recently.

The bill was hardly perfect, which meant a lot of the voting on the margins defied conventional wisdom. Some traditional critics of Israel voted against the bill over language, and still others rejected the bill because it proscribed a US-imposed solution.

The “gang of four” stood as four Democrats opposing the resolution, and did so because the bill’s final version removed any mention of settlements, of Israel being an occupying power, and watered down language about the two-state solution at the behest of more centrist Democrats.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What is really worrying me about Israel right now, is a new draft proposal, conjured up by Netanyahu and Pompeo, which I am certain, Pompeo is going to present, hurriedly to Congress, and push it through to get it passed, before their last day of this session (and I find this ironically amusing), which is Friday the 13th.

This bill Proposed US/Israeli Defense Treaty Gaining Steam after Pompeo/Neetanyahu MeetThe article goes on to state:

"A proposed US-Israeli defense treaty is gaining steam after a meeting between Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu (currently representing an 'interim' government) and US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in Lisbon this week.

Speaking of the controversial defense pact, Netanyahu told reporters of the Wednesday discussion: “The meeting with Pompeo was critical for Israeli security,” and added, “We agreed to promote a defense pact.”

However, such a controversial pact wold have a long way to go in the domestic politics of both nations, considering it would commit the United States to war to defend Israel. This also at a time when Israel has frequently attacked what it deems 'Iranian targets' inside Syria and Iraq in what both countries have condemned as acts of brazen aggression."

I have a deep concern that such an act may well get placed as a rider, or amendment, to a larger, "gotta pass this one" bill", and become law, before it has a chance to be seen for what it is, in the cold, cruel light of morning; a commitment to defend Israel, no matter what it has done, and no matter how wrong it was in doing so, and which may give Netanyahu another chance to "ride herd" on the Israeli government as Prime Minister, even with those corruption charges hanging over his head.

Russia Says Will Respond to U.S. on Missile Deployment

Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Friday that Russia will not hesitate to respond to any new deployment of missiles by the United States.

"We will have a mirror reaction", Lavrov said. "Every step will have a Russian reaction," Lavrov said at a news conference in Rome with his Italian counterpart, speaking through an Italian interpreter.

Russia has proposed a moratorium on the deployment of short and intermediate-range nuclear missiles in Europe after the Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF) banning such a move formally ended in August.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

(Sigh) Mr. President, and Secretary Pompeo; a word, please, gentlemen.

Were I you, I would absolutely believe, precisely, every word
Sergei Lavrov said here; in making this statement, the guy is about as serious as is a heart attack, and did not utter these words just to hear himself speak.

Right now, I think that BOTH of you need to check your collective egos at the door; sit down; and do some real negotiating here.

Neither this country, nor the world, needs to see a massive, tit-for-tat, arms buildup between Russia and the US, which may well ultimately see war between these countries, which could potentially spread, like a brushfire, uncontained, over the entire world.

FAA Slaps Boeing With $3.9 Million in Civil Penalties Over Subpar Aircraft Equipment

Aircraft maker Boeing is facing more than $3.9 million in penalties from the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) after the company allegedly neglected to adhere to its own quality assurance system before installing “nonconforming components” on some 133 aircraft.

The FAA announced Friday that Boeing’s negligence in airworthiness certification and installation of subpar aircraft equipment may result in a total of $3,916,871 in civil penalties from the federal government.

According to the administration, slat tracks processed by Southwest United Industries (SUI) on June 29, 2018, and shipped to Spirit AeroSystems Inc. were ultimately delivered to Boeing for installation on its 737-series aircraft, despite the components failing a strength test.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And yet... no one who signed off on doing this, ever, ever goes to jail.

Those who read this site understand that I abhor war as a way through which the US government gets what it wants.

That being said, every time one of our military is dependent on aircraft to do their mission, it must be up to professional standards, which cannot be allowed to lag.

Two Federal laws have to come into place, to "cure the problem", as draconian as they may sound.

First, no military-industrial complex company, or sub-contractor to such a company, should never, ever be able to contribute to a Presidential campaign, ever.

Familiarity does breed contempt, and when a manufacturer thinks that they can "get away with" providing shoddy product to our military, because they play golf with our country's President, this can never be allowed to happen again.

Secondly, signing off on "loosened" safety standards, needs to become a criminal corporate offense, and whoever signed off on this, should be criminally charged; tried, and convicted by a jury of their peers, and shuffled off to a prison which is the polar opposite of a "Club Fed."

As extreme as these actions may sound, if these laws save the life of even one of our military personnel, they will have done their job.

DHS WANTED TO ADD US CITIZENS TO THE LONG LIST OF PEOPLE SUBJECTED TO MANDATORY FACE SCANS AT AIRPORTS... BUT HAS BACKED DOWN FOR NOW

We knew the DHS would get to this point eventually. Since the beginning of its biometric scanning program rollout, the DHS has planned on adding US citizens to the list of people forced to trade their faces for air travel privileges. So far, the program has been limited to suspicious foreigners (which is all of them, including those here on visas), but a recent filing -- caught by Zack Whittaker at TechCrunch -- says flying in the United States would soon require adding yourself to the government's facial recognition databases.

Homeland Security wants to expand facial recognition checks for travelers arriving to and departing from the U.S. to also include citizens, which had previously been exempt from the mandatory checks.

In a filing, the department has proposed that all travelers, and not just foreign nationals or visitors, will have to complete a facial recognition check before they are allowed to enter the U.S., but also to leave the country.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am a little more than stunned at this; I am a Christian pacifist activist, constantly exhorting her government to behave in a moral, responsible manner, and never, ever advocate violence.

And my only tools here are logic, and responsible linking and posting.

So folks, why me?!?

Because logic....doesn't run either US domestic or foreign policy, money does.

And so how does that play out in this country?!?

Let me count the ways...

IF logic were the watchword of this government, every kid coming out of high school would be literate, nummerate, and very capable of critical thinking.

That this does not happen, is done deliberately, in order to create a permanent underclass, for the rest of us to "have to take care of"for the rest of their lives.

Because they are incapable of reason, and are dependent upon government services, they are more easily swayed toward a certain end by government propaganda, and that ... is just where the US government wants them to be.

If logic were the watchword of this government, our money would be backed by something of intrinsic value, which at the moment, it is not, and has not been since Nixon took the US off the gold standard in 1971. Nixon's Colossal Monetary Error; the verdict 40 years later.

If logic were the watchword of this government, there would be no "pay to play" corruption schemes, because the finances of ALL Federal government officials would be put into a blind trust for the duration of their service.

And finally, if logic were the watchword of this government, there would be no more hegemonic wars to attempt to keep the value of US paper money in tact; and there are countries around the world which are leaving the US dollar in droves, toward other "baskets" of currencies, particularly the BRICS nations; Russia and China are becoming "fiscally allergic" to doing any business transactions in the US dollar, and are working diligently to ensure that the divorce from the US dollar is ultimately final, and complete.

Russia's bid to ditch the US dollar is working slowly, but obstacles remain.

Diteching the US dollar emerges as popular 2019 Market Fix Call.

And to all those "alphabet soup agency" personnel tasked/cursed with reading this site, please remember; at best, I am, simply, just a very minor annoyance,and the polar antithesis of a "threat."

Unfortunately, the real "threat" to this country, comes from how those in the Bowels of Power in DC, who choose to use the power of its military to enmesh the world with endless wars, expropriating natural resources to which the US and its corporate money junkies have absolutely no moral right, and slaughtering those people who have the misfortune to live over, or around, those resources.

And I have to wonder; will those in the Federal Government, also have to have their faces scanned at the airport, before they can get on a plane?!?

I would almost be willing to bet, that the short answer to that question, would be, "HELL, no!!""

GILEAD DELAYED SAFER HIV DRUG TO EXTEND MONOPOLY PROFITS, ADVOCATES ALLEGE

SOURCE: WASHINGTONPOST.COM

In 2005, Gilead Sciences notified federal regulators that it was suspending development of a potentially safer, more potent HIV-fighting drug than the one on the market. The company did not restart its Food and Drug Administration application until 2010. Now the five-year delay of a promising drug is at the core of accusations by advocates that Gilead improperly exploited the patent system at the expense of patient health.

An HIV-prevention group called PrEP4All Collaboration filed a petition Wednesday with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office contending Gilead knew its new, improved drug — approved in 2015 and now part of Gilead’s combination therapies Genvoya and Descovy — was safer. But it alleged Gilead postponed development so it could continue to gain monopoly profits from its older combination HIV drugs, including Viread and Truvada, for a longer period,before those drugs went off patent and faced generic competition.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This kind of corporate behaviour just utterly...BITES!!

Of course, this is not really that strange, when you consider that, at the highest levels of corporate responsibility, many who fill those jobs have had their conscience surgically removed, before signing on to take an executive post at a company like this.

'He wired us that way': Mark Richardson blames God for Kiwis' porn habits

Following recent news that New Zealanders, on average, watch a concerning amount of porn, TV host Mark Richardson shared his thoughts on why Kiwis enjoy it so much.

Richardson pointed the finger at an unlikely target, when it comes to pornography: God.

"Can I blame the good Lord for our porn habit?" the TV show host and former cricketer said on The AM Show earlier today.

"Clearly he's wired us that way... our fascination with sex. Because we need to procreate don't we, to continue the species."

*What I am more worried about is that the Government is preparing law changes to regulate online pornography like the UK, which was dropped.*

The McCollum Memo:The Smoking Gun of Pearl Harbor

On October 7, 1940, Lieutenant Commander Arthur McCollum of the Office of Naval Intelligence submitted a memo to Navy Captains Walter Anderson and Dudley Knox (whose endorsement is included in the following scans). Captains Anderson and Knox were two of President Roosevelt's most trusted military advisors.

The memo, scanned below, detailed an 8 step plan to provoke Japan into attacking the United States. President Roosevelt, over the course of 1941, implemented all 8 of the recommendations contained in the McCollum memo. Following the eighth provocation, Japan attacked. The public was told that it was a complete surprise, an "intelligence failure", and America entered World War Two.

"Well, it's [the reports are] based on leaked information from people who didn't read the Horowitz report, but were told about it from people, other people who were briefed on it who didn't read the report," Jarrett said on "The Story with Martha MacCallum" Thursday.

SYRIAN WAR REPORT – DECEMBER 6, 2019: ISRAELI AIR FORCE BOMBED ‘IRANIAN TARGETS’ NEAR AL-BUKAMAL

The Israeli Air Force has carried out a new round of strikes on Iranian-linked targets near the Syrian-Iraqi border. The airstrikes reportedly hit at the al-Hamadan airport north of the town of al-Bukamal.

Pro-Israeli sources claimed that the strike destroyed a HQ of Iranian-backed militias, as well as ammunition and weapon depots. The U News agency, which is known for its close ties with Lebanon’s Hezbollah and Iranian forces in Syria, also shared reports on Israeli airstrikes, but did not confirm them.

Since the start of 2019, the Israel Air Force had conducted over a dozen of strikes on supposed Iranian targets near al-Bukamal. Despite this, the town and facilities around it remain a stronghold of Iranian-backed forces in the border area.

Medical Diagnosis: Confusion

These days, doctors often run antibody tests on patients to see if they have a particular disease.

What is an antibody test?

In the simplest terms, it is aimed at detecting a person’s immune system responding to the presence of a specific germ.

A doctor suspects you have disease X, which is caused by virus Y. He takes a blood sample, and that sample is examined for the presence of antibodies which are specific to virus Y.

If you test positive for the presence of those antibodies, he says you have disease X.

However, there is a vaccine that is supposed to protect a person from disease X, and this vaccine does what?

IT PRODUCES ANTIBODIES SPECIFIC TO VIRUS Y.

In that case, you are said to be immune from virus Y.

That’s right.

This is what is called a contradiction.

Judicial Watch announced today that U.S. District Judge James E. Boasberg denied a Justice Department effort to block the release of any communications between former FBI General Counsel James Baker and Michael Sussmann, a Perkins Coie law partner and former DOJ attorney, who reportedly met with Baker to share information targeting Donald J. Trump during the presidential campaign. While at Perkins Coie, Sussmann represented the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and Hillary Clinton’s campaign during the time Perkins Coie secretly paid for the development of the anti-Trump dossier the DOJ used to obtain FISA warrants to spy on the Trump campaign. The court specifically rejected the FBI’s argument that it needed to protect the “privacy” of Hillary Clinton’s lawyer.

A US human rights group is being sued by pro-Israel organizations over an alleged connection to ‘balloon terror’

The US Campaign for Palestinian Rights (USCPR) is the target of a $90 million lawsuit that accuses the group of engaging in environmental terrorism.

The legal action was brought forward by the Keren Kayemeth LeIsrael-Jewish National Fund (KKL-JNF) and 12 Americans citizens who live in Israel last month. Although they’re identified as the KKL-JNF in Hebrew, the group is widely known as the Jewish National Fund. The complaint alleges that USCPR has funneled money to the Boycott National Committee (BNC) to be used for terrorist activities and that BNC is directly connected to HAMAS, Palestinian Islamic Jihad, Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, the Popular Front-General Command and the Palestinian Liberation Front. The group’s press release on the action asserts that the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement itself is a “campaign of terror against Israel.”

Mike Pompeo’s quid pro quo for Sheldon Adelson

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is reported to be planning a run for Senate in Kansas next year and quietly recruiting funders for that race. And surprise– Pompeo has already reached out to Sheldon Adelson, the biggest Republican donor around, and to other pro-Israel donors– at the very time that he was announcing that the U.S. no longer considers Israeli settlements illegal.

The report by Michael Wilner of McClatchy and Bryan Lowry of the Kansas City Star is frank about the crazy timing here.

The timing of Pompeo’s exchange with Adelson coincided with the secretary’s on-camera announcement on November 18 that the Trump administration would revoke its longstanding legal determination on the legitimacy of Israeli settlements in the West Bank. Adelson supports the settler enterprise.

Over 100 Democrats send Pompeo a letter opposing Trump’s settlement policy

Last month, over 100 Democratic House members signed a letter that decried the Trump administration’s policy shift on West Bank settlements. The letter was initiated by Rep. Andy Levin (D-MI and was sent to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. On November 18, Pompeo announced that the U.S. government was abandoning a 1978 State Department legal opinion which determined that settlement expansion in the occupied territories were in violation of international law. Just a day after Pompeo’s announcement, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu advanced a bill that would annex the Jordan Valley.

“If the U.S. unilaterally abandons international and human rights law, we can only expect a more chaotic and brutal twenty-first century for Americans and our allies, including the Israeli people,” reads Levin’s letter, “Given these serious implications, we strongly urge you to reverse this policy decision immediately.”

Prominent scholars, including Nobel Prize winner George P. Smith and Noam Chomsky signed a petition demanding Aboudi’s release.

The petition calls on the European Union in particular to demand that Israel free Aboudi. The EU grants Israel huge amounts of money under the guise of research and science partnerships despite Israel’s constant violations of the human rights condition in its agreement with the EU.

Within this context, the EU’s Supreme Court has approved labeling Israeli goods produced in settlements built in the Palestinian territories, and exported to the EU. It should also be noted that the EU always asserts that settlements are “illegal, and are an obstacle for achieving peace.”

US cable channel HBO on Thursday green-lit the production of a new limited series based on the Watergate scandal that brought down President Richard Nixon, starring Woody Harrelson and Justin Theroux.

The two actors -- HBO veterans -- will also executive produce "The White House Plumbers," which is to be written by Alex Gregory and Peter Huyck, who scripted the network's award-winning comedy "Veep."

The announcement comes as Washington is again in the throes of an impeachment inquiry against US President Donald Trump, some 45 years after Nixon resigned to avoid a certain trial before US lawmakers.

What is Jewish Noahide Law and U.S. Public Law 102-14

On March 20th 1991, the United States Congress passed H.J Res 104, which was then signed into law by President George H. W. Bush and became Public Law No. 102-14. The language of the law asserts that the "Seven Noahide Laws" are the ethical values of civilized society and are the basis on which the American nation was founded and that without these Seven Noahide Laws society stands in peril. It is also stated that it is our nation's "responsibility" to transmit these "ethical values" to the generations of the future and that in the future the President of the United States will sign an "international scroll" pledging to return the world to the Seven Noahide Laws through education and charity. The law also celebrates the birthday of one Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, the leader of the Chabad-Lubavitch movement, who along with this organization has been dedicated to spreading and fostering the Seven Noahide Laws in society.

Massive Leak Confirms Turkey's "Gold-For-Gas" Scheme To Evade US Sanctions On Iran

We first started noticing major 'odd' exports of gold from Turkey to Iran in May 2012. Turkey’s trade balance fluctuated wildly as gold stocks flowed out of the country in bursts.

“Turkey’s going to continue it,” the Turkish economy minister said. “If those casting aspersions on the gold trade are searching for immorality, they should take a look in the mirror.”

Then, in 2014, we discussed Turkey's "200 tons of secret gold" trade with Iran detailing how a complex network that spanned Turkey, China, Dubai and Iran was used to skirt US sanctions on energy exports from Iran.

The operation featured an Iranian-born businessman who liked fast horses, faster cars and the fastest planes. His unique skill: Getting gold into sanctions-encircled Iran.

Enough gold that for a time he became the government’s key instrument in improving Turkey’s irksome economic imbalance.

AS THE OPCW IS ACCUSED OF FALSE REPORTING U.S. PROPAGANDA JUMPS TO ITS HELP

An international organization published two false reports and got caught in the act. But as the false reports are in the U.S. interests a U.S. sponsored propaganda organization is send out to muddle the issue. As that effort comes under fire the New York Times jumps in to give the cover-up effort some extra help.

The Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) manufactured a pretext for war by suppressing its own scientists’ research:

OPCW emails and documents were leaked and whistleblowers came forward to speak with journalists and international lawyers. Veteran journalist Jonathan Steele, who has spoken with the whistleblowers, wrote an excellent piece on the issues. In the Mail on Sunday columnist Peter Hitchens picked up the issue and moved it forward.

But who orchestrated the “sweetheart deal” that allowed him to evade justice for masterminding an international child sex ring? The answer lies within.

Israeli Officials Warn Annexation May Lead Jordan to Take Drastic Steps

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is keen to annex parts of the occupied West Bank, on the grounds that the US is going to let him do so. Israeli officials, particularly military officials, are warning against one of the primary targets, the Jordan Valley.

The Jordan Valley, which connects the West Bank to Jordan, is something the Israeli right has long wanted to annex, as it would mean the rest of the Palestinian West Bank would never have a border with any nation other than Israel.

Military officials are warning that the big problem would be with Jordan itself, and that this move would further damage Israel-Jordan ties, and might force the Jordanian government to take drastic steps.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This may well be the proverbial straw that breaks the camel's back; the Jordanian government must really be concerned right now, and I don't blame them one whit.

This would be a complete game-changer for the Palestinians, and definitely not a good one, either.

Netanyahu, Pompeo Push Forward With US-Israel Defense Pact: Netanyahu argues he should stay in power because of deal

On Wednesday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo met for an hour and 45 minutes on the specifics of a proposed US-Israel defense pact. The pact amounts to a more or less direct US intervention in Israeli politics, after two elections failed to end with a government formed.

The Trump Administration had made no bones about preferring Netanyahu over his primary political rival Benny Gantz, and the pact seems to be pandering to that fact, since Gantz is opposed to the deal.

Netanyahu looks to be steering heavily into this US lifeline, arguing that the deal proves he needs to stay in power, and that in the event of a rotation government with Gantz, he’d have to be first because of his “unique” ties with the US.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Are you flipping kidding me?!?

And does Congress have to approve this in-the-works pact, or is it simply signed by President Trump, as an Executive Order?

Because if it is "President To President" and there is no Congressional oversight and approval to even begin to study its implications for the US's defense of Israel, this means that Israel can demand that US fight its wars for it in perpetuam, perpetually, beginning with a war against Iran.

However, I survive and with just a bit of luck Britain may also survive the present chaos inflicted on it by the Lobby and by its own compromised political establishment.

Moscow’s proposals on reducing tensions with NATO remain unanswered, says Lavrov

NATO has not responded to Russian proposals on reducing tensions between Moscow and the alliance, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Thursday.

"Russia’s proposals on reducing tensions on the line of contact between Russia and the North-Atlantic Alliance remain unanswered. There has been no response either to a message by the Collective Security Treaty Organization member-states to their NATO colleagues," Lavrov told a meeting of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) Ministerial Council in Slovakia’s capital of Bratislava.

Russia’s top diplomat highlighted that Moscow seeks to continue dialogue with Western states "involving military experts and without politicizing this process." "We believe dialogue is an important confidence building measure, especially in conditions when military contacts between Russia and NATO have been suspended," Lavrov stressed.

Why Do Western Governments Favor Immigrant-Invaders Over Law-Abiding Citizens?

NOTE: Some readers have asked why I’m not writing about the impeachment proceedings. The answer is that there are no grounds for impeachment.

It is a pointless exercise as I cannot imagine that the Senate would convict a President on the basis of complaints by Jewish bureaucrats that Trump won’t let them run US foreign policy the way Israel wants.

West Ramp Up Anti-Iran Propaganda

US and Western European officials are continuing a strategy of making dubious allegations against Iran in an effort to try to justify continued military hostility, which is expected to involve a large US military buildup in the region.

In Europe, this is centering on claims about Iran’s conventional missile systems, arguing that they are in violation of a UN ban on nuclear-capable missiles even though Iran doesn’t have any nuclear warheads. Iran has pointed out this is a lie, saying they have a right to missile systems under international law.

This allegation, pushed by Britain, France, and Germany, is likely to be a red herring that will be used in upcoming talks with Iran about their civilian nuclear program to distract from relatively straightforward matters of sanctions relief and enrichment limits.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Demonization is generally the last act before an actual invasion; that being said, however, there are many more millions in this country, and beyond, who now understand, in hindsight, and without a shadow of a doubt, that this was the same kind of codswallop we were getting, courtesy of the corporate media, before the invasions and occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan.

Sorry, President Trump; no deal here at all.

Israel and the Czech Republic has signed a $125 million government-to-government contract for advanced radar systems from Israel Aerospace Industries subsidiary Elta Systems.

The deal, signed by Israeli Ministry of Defense officials and their Czech counterparts during a ceremony Thursday, is for eight ELM-2084 multimission radars, a technology used for Israel’s Iron Dome and David’s Sling air defense systems as well as the Barak missile system.

The radars are for the Czech Mobile Air Defense Radar program. The program includes Czech businesses, whose work will make up for about 30 percent of the contract’s value.

Trump Administration OKs ‘Cyanide Bombs’ Despite Indiscriminate Killing of Thousands of Animals a Year

The Trump administration today announced it will reauthorize use of sodium cyanide in wildlife-killing devices called M-44s. These “cyanide bombs” received approval from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency despite inhumanely and indiscriminately killing thousands of animals every year. They have also injured people.

“This appalling decision leaves cyanide traps lurking in the wild to threaten people, pets and impereled animals,” said Collette Adkins, carnivore conservation director at the Center for Biological Diversity. “The EPA imposed a few minor restrictions, but these deadly devices have just wreaked too much havoc to remain in use. To truly protect humans and wildlife from these poisonous contraptions, we need a nationwide ban.”

Pentagon ‘Denies’ Plans to Send 14,000 More Troops to Area Around Iran

The denial isn’t necessarily particularly binding, since the consideration would’ve been at the White House level, not the Pentagon level. The Pentagon has often made policy proclamations that don’t pan out when the administration makes decisions.

In all likelihood, a series of options are being considered, with all reports pointing to the US again escalating its presence. Sending another 14,000 troops is likely on the extreme end of possibilities, but there appears to be no denying that another buildup is in the offing.

The Navy is already talking about the possibility of sending a second aircraft carrier to the region, if so ordered, with Admiral Mike Gilday saying the US could “absolutely” do this as part of the maximum pressure campaign on Iran.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would sincerely like to hope (and pray) that those in the Bowels of Power in DC; the Pentagon; the White House; and Congress, do remember that the following statement was made by a Russian official to an Iranian Official back in June of this last year. As reported by the Moscow Times, English Edition, on 26 June of 2019:

IRAN WON'T BE ALONE IF THE US ATTACKS- RUSSIAN OFFICIAL SAYS

We all know that "plausible deniability" is a religion for members of this country's leadership; but war with Russia, in order to decap Tehran?!?

I would like to hope that reasonably sane people would not consider this a great idea; in fact, this would be one of the most ham-fistedly, pig-headedly things the US government and military could do; that being said, unfortunately, there is absolutely no guarantee that the US government and military won't haul off and do it.

The ‘Burn Pit’ Is The New Agent Orange Of Our Era

It’s a headline that should, by all appearances, be considered “good news.” But somehow the November 18 declaration, “VA announces plans to study military toxic exposures, connections to veteran illnesses,” just comes off as an Onion-esque parody.

That’s because the Veterans Affairs Department has been vowing to “study” the effects of the ubiquitous “burn pits” on soldiers for more than a decade—so has the Pentagon. In fact, there have been tons of studies already, big and small, in both the public and private sectors. But like everything in Washington, launching one more study or task force allows the bureaucracy to stall real action—in this case, practical help for thousands of men and women who say they’re suffering from war-related illnesses.

US Releases Photos of Seized 'Significant Cache' of Iran Missile Parts Headed to Yemen

The US government announced on Thursday that it had intercepted a weapons stash which it alleges was destined for Houthi militants and delivered by Iran. This comes as the Trump administration steps up its pressure on the Iranian government.

The US government on Thursday released photos of missile parts which military officials claim to be of Iranian origin and allegedly meant to be delivered to Yemen.

Brian Hook, the US Special Representative for Iran and a senior adviser to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, displayed the photos during an official briefing on Thursday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It appears that this is the closest thing the US government can "wave at the world" regarding Iran, in lieu of an actual bloody shirt; and Secretary of State Pompeo, please let me politely disabuse you of any notion that the American people, or anyone else, for that matter, is "buying in"on this.

The butt-ugly reality, Mr. Secretary, is that fake weapons can be created anywhere, then put on display "for show", with the public told that they were "confiscated".

The FBI says owners of IoT (Internet of Things) devices should isolate this equipment on a separate WiFi network, different from the one they're using for their primary devices, such as laptops, desktops, or smartphones.

"Your fridge and your laptop should not be on the same network," the FBI's Portland office said in a weekly tech advice column. "Keep your most private, sensitive data on a separate system from your other IoT devices," it added.

The same advice -- to keep devices on a separate WiFi network or LAN -- has been shared in the past by multiple IT and security experts [1, 2, 3, 4].

There is no guarantee that paying up will result in decryption, but many will do so rather than lose their files -- and in cases where crucial systems have been locked, such as at government bodies or healthcare providers, there is additional pressure to return to normal operations as quickly as possible.

How do Americans discern truth from fiction in this era of fake news?

By now, any American who doesn’t have their head in the sand should have lost any faith they ever had in the news media as the 4th estate of government, the de facto examiner and investigator of government.

One survey reveals 95% of those Americans polled are “troubled by fake news.” How can Americans find the truth when, according to a Pew Research Center study:

69% say the federal government withholds important information from the public
61% say the news media ignores important stories
58% of adults are not confident people can hold civil conversations with those who have different views
57% are not confident people will cast informed votes in elections

Gun Control Groups Hide Behind Bogus "Police" Think-Tank To Disarm Americans

This is all done with your tax dollars, no less, as the Nationalist Review recently exposed the DOJ’s funding of PERF:

Between 2001 and 2017, PERF has received a combined $35.2 million in funding from federal, state, and local governments in the form of grants and contracts, according to 990 tax filings submitted by the DC based think tank. In addition to this funding, PERF receives millions more annually in the form of fees charged for training ($9,500 per officer for a three week course) and conference registrations ($3.3 million in 2018 alone)

Made up of police chiefs and executives from large cities, PERF policies have resulted in a “soft federalization” of policing, with “training courses” that yield almost zero flexibility for officers in the field, and this rigidity extends to the push to restrict civilian firearms ownership at every juncture.

The leaders of Russia and Ukraine will meet on Monday for talks on the conflict in east Ukraine, in what could be a step forward in ending Europe's only active war.

The summit in Paris will mark the first time Russia's Vladimir Putin meets face-to-face with Ukraine's new comedian-turned-president, Volodymyr Zelensky.

Few are expecting an immediate breakthrough, but Zelensky's election this year and a recent easing of tensions have raised hopes of resolving the five-year conflict.

French President Emmanuel Macron, who will mediate along with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, pushed hard for the talks and they will be a test of his efforts to reset Europe's ties with Moscow

Horowitz reportedly finds FBI lawyer falsified FISA doc; WaPo stealth-deletes Strzok connection

Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz has found evidence that an FBI lawyer manipulated a key investigative document related to the FBI's secretive surveillance of a former Trump campaign adviser -- enough to change the substantive meaning of the document, according to multiple reports.

The show-stopping development comes as Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., told Fox News that Horowitz's comprehensive report on allegations of Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant abuse against former Trump campaign aide Carter Page will be released on Dec. 9. "That's locked," Graham said.

The new evidence concerning the altered document, which pertained to the FBI's FISA court warrant application to surveil Page, is expected to be outlined in Horowitz's upcoming report. CNN first reported the news, which was largely confirmed by The Washington Post.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Color me completely unsurprised by this revelation; and to be brutally honest,
