Israeli court orders Facebook to unblock account of NSO Group employee

A Tel Aviv court ordered Facebook Inc to unblock the private account of a worker at Israeli surveillance company NSO Group, and similar rulings are expected for other employees in the coming days, an NSO spokeswoman said on Tuesday.

A group of NSO employees filed a suit against Facebook in November, saying the social media group had unfairly blocked their private accounts when it sued NSO in October.

Will Censorship Prevail over the First Amendment?

I remember when censorship in America was a limited phemonenon. It applied during war time—“loose lips sink ships.” It applied to pornography. It applied to curse words on the public airwaves and in movies. It applied to violence in movies. There could be violence, but not the level that has become common.

Today censorship is ubiquitous. It is everywhere. In the United States censorship is both imposed from above and flows from the bottom up. Censorship is imposed from above by, for example, TV and print media, Google, Facebook, Twitter, and by laws in 28 states prohibiting criticism and participation in boycotts of Israel and by President Trump’s executive order preventing federal funding of educational institutions that permit criticisms of Israel. Censorship flows from the bottom up by, for example, people of protected races, genders, and sexual preference claiming to be offended.

How Americas Most Powerful News Media Worked Hand in Glove with the Central Intelligence Agency and Why the Church Committee Covered It Up

In 1953, Joseph Alsop, then one of America’s leading syndicated columnists, went to the Philippines to cover an election. He did not go because he was asked to do so by his syndicate. He did not go because he was asked to do so by the newspapers that printed his column. He went at the request of the CIA.

Soros Says Facebook CEO, COO Should Be Removed, Accuses Zuckerberg of Conspiring with Trump

Billionaire George Soros slammed Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, accusing him of helping to get US President Donald Trump reelected, according to a letter published in the Financial Times, while also calling on the social media giant to reject political advertising.

Soros’ comments came after Zuckerberg said during the Munich Security Conference that he expects more government regulation to come "from the states on basically — take political advertising as an example — what discourse should be allowed?”

"Mr Zuckerberg appears to be engaged in some kind of mutual assistance arrangement with Donald Trump that will help him to get reelected, Facebook does not need to wait for government regulations to stop accepting any political advertising in 2020 until after the elections on November 4," Soros wrote.

STILL No Non-East Asian Deaths From Corona—But CNN’s Sanjay Gupta Won’t Admit It

The story so far: There is still no confirmed case of the Coronavirus killing anyone other than ethnic East Asians. The Drudge Report today (February 15) features FRANCE REPORTS FIRST DEATH OUTSIDE ASIA... but the underlying story, from Bloomberg via Yahoo Finance, says the victim was an “80-year-old Chinese tourist.” Drudge, of course, is just scaring up clicks. But why does the rest of the Main Stream Media, and the medical Establishment, want to suppress a possibility that could relieve fears around the world: that the Coronavirus disproportionately impacts, and perhaps only kills, East Asians?

Now read on.

‘NY Times’ covers up annexation plan scheme to ‘denationalize’ 350,000 Palestinian citizens of Israel

The U.S. mainstream media, with the New York Times in the lead, is covering up a shocking feature of the Netanyahu/Trump annexation plan that would strip 350,000 to 400,000 Palestinian citizens of Israel of their citizenship. The “denationalization” proposal is a crime against humanity, but the American press is ignoring it.

Thabet Abu Rass lives in the affected area, a predominately Palestinian part of northeast Israel known as “The Triangle,” where he heads an organization devoted to promoting peace between Israel’s Jewish and Arab citizens. Here’s how he translated the denationalization proposal:

TV EXECUTIVES CELEBRATE UNPRECEDENTED FLOOD OF BLOOMBERG CAMPAIGN SPENDING

FOX NEWS HOSTS regularly bash former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg as a globalist demagogue intent on seizing Americans’ firearms and big gulp sodas. High-level executives at the company, however, are much more enthusiastic about the billionaire politician and Democratic presidential candidate.

Lachlan Murdoch, the chief executive of Fox Corp., the parent company of Fox News, is one of several media executives to welcome Bloomberg’s unprecedented spending spree on television advertisements. In a February 5 briefing for investors, Murdoch noted that he had heard “the Bloomberg campaign has expected to sort of double its advertising spend earlier this week.” The billionaire’s campaign, Murdoch noted, makes purchases on a week-to-week basis, making it difficult to project the ultimate benefit for his company.

200,000 homes ditch their BBC TV licences in a year prompting funding crisis at the corporation as No10 says it wants Netflix-style subscription system

The true scale of the BBC's licence fee crisis has been laid bare as figures reveal an alarming drop in the number of people paying the charge.

Around 200,000 fewer households currently have a TV licence compared to a year ago, despite a continuing rise in the UK's population.

This comes amid claims that Downing Street is planning to scrap the fee and turn the broadcaster into a Netflix-style subscription service.

But would anyone notice? CNN breaks ‘report’ of Syrian airstrikes… from 2018

CNN readers anxious to get updates on the Syrian war have been treated with a fresh report on the “regime’s atrocities” citing the usual suspects… or it would only seem so, as the network reran a two-year-old story instead.

Citing the UK-based and rebel-linked Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, the story claims that forces loyal to Syrian President Bashar Assad killed at least 71 people and injured 325 others in a series of airstrikes on rebel-held Eastern Ghouta. Published this week, the report is featured on CNN website’s ‘World’ and ‘Middle East’ sections.

The only problem is that Ghouta has been under the control of Assad’s government for nearly two years. Homes in the region are being rebuilt, not leveled by bombs.

In fact, CNN ran the same story, word for word, back in February 2018. The same paragraphs detailing the horrendous bombing appeared, along with a handy get-out-clause: “CNN could not independently verify the claim.”

Understanding why they lie and why they get away with it

Is there really anybody out there who will deny that the US government lies pretty much about everything and anything?. And it’s not just the Executive Branch, Congress lies possibly even more (both parties, of course). In fact, I would argue that lying is both necessary AND expected from any US politician. When somebody like Tulsi Gabbard or Ron Paul don’t abide by this rule, the media immediately dismisses them as “Putin agents” or something equally insipid.

The truth is that lies have become the norm of the western political discourse.

That is bad enough by itself. But there is worse.

The worst is not that western politicians lie, the worst is that almost nobody cares.

That is really scary.

Why?

HOLLYWOOD GOES FULL BLACKLIST AND FAILS TO GRASP THE IRONY

In the wake of the latest Hollywood buffoonery displayed at the Oscars, I think it is time for the American public to denounce in the strongest possible terms the rampant hypocrisy of sanctimonious cretins who make their living pretending to be someone other than themselves.

Brad Pitt, Joaquin Phoenix and Barbara Streisand pop to mind as representative examples. All three are eager to lecture the American public on the need for equality and non-discrimination. Yet, not one of the recipients of the Oscar gift bags worth $225,000 spoke out against that extraordinary excess nor demanded that the money spent purchasing these "gifts" be used to benefit the poor and the homeless. Nope, take the money and run.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mike and I lived through these precise kind of behaviours, courtesy of the Clintonistas, when Mike noticed that there were several glaring inconsistencies in the way in which the Clinton White House presented, and endorsed the narrative, that the Vince Foster allegedly committed suicide.
Vince Foster

Within 24 hours from making his observations during lunch, when a number of his buddies at the computer animation company where he was working were listening, and CNN had leased space there, so its minions were "leaning in", to also listen, Mike was fired from his job for no good reason, and the death threats started shortly thereafter. When one did computer animation in greater LA, one absolutely had a listed number, so that people who wanted to hire you for work (or to harass you), could ultimately find you.

And not only was he blacklisted from an industry he helped invent, and studio heads were warned off hiring him, "or else"; those in a position to hire him were also informed that absolutely none of the material on his demo reel was original with him, and that he had stolen every bit of work he represented as original and his own, a damnable lie, but the people spreading the lies were desperate, because they knew that Michael had the ability to prevent the White House from completely controlling the narrative, and they desperately fought to prevent this.

Someone should have, perhaps, observed, on the side of his attackers, that keeping him from working was going to give him an incredible amount of time on this hands, with which to further research what was going on with the Clintons, and beyond, which he did. The result was, ultimately, the website you see here, whatreallyhappened.com.

Those who know me, understand that I am neither vicious nor violent, in any way; I am a practicing Christian, but with an excellent set of resources with which to dredge up the God-awful facts about the devolution of the government of this country over the last 30 years.

I will continue to do this, at this site, for as long as I continue to breathe, and that should be for a very long time.

And because it looks as though Hillary Clinton, may be contemplating another (losing) run against Donald Trump, I will leave you with this question, and some documentation on the question; what in Heaven's name, was a convicted drug felon, one Jorge Cabrera, doing at the Clinton Christmas party?!?
Images: Jorge Cabrera at the Clinton White House Christmas Party

Why was he legitimized by the Clintons, who understood, full well, that he was a convicted drug felon?!? Was it just, that then, as recently, with the Clinton Foundation, they just had, and have, no problem taking anyone's campaign money, no matter how dirty it was, or is?!?

I think the question really needs some hard askings, and hard answers, from the Democratic Party Machinery; and depending upon the timing of the Tulsi Gabbard lawsuit against her, Tulsi Gabbard Explains Decision to Sue Hillary Clinton; if they can do it to me, they can do it to everyone, Clinton may well lose her "aura of invulnerability", and finally be perceived like the Kryptonite she is by the Party Faithful.

There is a Biblical injunction in the New Testament, which warns people that they will reap what the sow; perhaps this lawsuit, is what one might call, in classical literature, a "deus ex machina"; a "machine of the gods" with which Clinton gets professionally destroyed,because of her highly destructive actions toward others.

It will be interesting to see how this unfolds. :-)

Forget about balance? BBC now a climate activist saying it’s a ‘privilege’ to have ‘global icon’ Greta Thunberg front new series

With the turmoil surrounding the BBC right now, warring talent arguing over their salaries, the hunt for a new Director General and the bound-to-get-uglier row over the tv licence fee, excitedly announcing a new climate change documentary all about Swedish teen Greta Thunberg shows a palpable lack of feel for the public mood.

But she is exactly the sort of poster child the BBC is looking for, as it turns to climate activism in a bid to boost its audience figures.

The national broadcaster is very much a self-appointed custodian of all things climate. Look at their What is Climate Change website and you will see plenty of broad facts about changes in the environment, but nothing to suggest that environmental change is largely part of the wondrous cycle of nature and not entirely the fault of man. That is where the BBC case lies.

“It never happened. Nothing ever happened. Even while it was happening it wasn’t happening. It didn’t matter. It was of no interest. The crimes of the United States have been systematic, constant, vicious, remorseless, but very few people have actually talked about them. You have to hand it to America. It has exercised a quite clinical manipulation of power worldwide while masquerading as a force for universal good. It’s a brilliant, even witty, highly successful act of hypnosis.” – Harold Pinter’s Nobel Prize Acceptance Speech, 2005

Luongo: DNC Is Setting The Stage For "An Irrevocable Split Of The Party"

Authored by Tom Luongo via Gold, Goats, 'n Guns blog,

If there is one thing that is clear as we end this truly insane week it is that it was a good one for President Donald Trump.

Between his acquittal in the Senate over an impeachment that is the apotheosis of three years of patent nonsense and the fiasco that were the Iowa caucuses, Trump comes out of this first week of February in better shape than he’s been since he won the election back in 2016.

The Democrats have made a complete mockery of their candidate selection process. At least back in 2016 when Trump knocked people off one by one the GOP didn’t openly try to rig primaries against him.

Of course, Trump isn’t as much of an outsider as he portrays himself, so his real threat to the entrenched political establishment in The Swamp was never as great as someone like, say, Ron Paul’s was in 2012.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The "circular firing squad" antics of the DNC, have demonstrated to most thinking Americans that they are singularly unworthy of trust in leadership; my problem is, right now, is that neither party speaks for me; my concerns; and what I perceive as a coming crash of this country which will be so tragically hard, that within the next 10 to 20 years, it will be totally unrecognizable, as "the land of the free, and the home of the brave", if it ever was within the context of the 21st century.

Hawkish Senators Demand Twitter 'Obey Sanctions' By Banning Iran's Leaders

At this rate all Iranian media sources and official accounts could soon be banned in the West, leaving journalists without a clue of what Tehran's leaders actually think, and without official statements. The semi-official Fars news English website was knocked offline two weeks ago by US Treasury order (the international server host conformed, making Fars transfer its site hosting to within Iran), but the latest in a growing list of "purges" whether on YouTube or other platforms.

And now US senators are leading the charge to get Iran's leaders banned from Twitter, as The Hill reports:

A group of Republican senators lead by Sen. Ted Cruz (Texas) sent a letter to Twitter on Thursday asking the platform to suspend the accounts of Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif to comply with U.S. sanction law.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why are Cruz, et al, so completely terrified of what the Iranian leadership might have to say in English, that they are demanding this censorship from Twitter?!?

Is it (gasp) possible that this leadership might, on occasion, have something to say which makes absolute sense to a potential US reader?!?

Folks, the short answer, here, has to be "Yes", and Cruz & Company don't want Americans to ever have that happen to them, because Iran has been designated as "the enemy" by a President who can only see this country through the utterly distorted "vision" of one of his BFFs in the Middle East, and that, of course, would be through the jaundiced eyes of Israel's Prime Minister, Bibi Netanyahu.

Iran is NOT an "existential threat" to Israel; it is a financial threat, and therefore, Tel Aviv wants to see its government smashed to smithereens, and this country devolving into tiny statelets with utterly no economic clout whatsoever.

I would encourage the readers of this site to read presstv.com, an Iranian site in their English language version, as long as it remains available on line; the other thing I would suggest you do, and right the heck now, is find and download the following video: Don't Tell Mother I'm In Iran, a charming video by a Jewish videographer, about his visit to that country, and how the Jewish community is thriving in Iran; that is something else Tel Aviv doesn't want Americans knowing about, either.

Syria & Russia Publish Evidence Of US Weapons Recovered In Idlib 'Terrorist Enclave'

The Syrian Army is making major gains inside Idlib in a military offensive condemned by Turkey and the United States, over the weekend capturing the key town of Saraqib from al-Qaeda linked Hayat Tahrir al-Sham.

Amid the military advance, the Syrian and Russian governments say they've recovered proof of US support for the anti-Assad al-Qaeda insurgent terrorists, publishing photographs of crates of weapons and supplies to state-run SANA:

Syrian Arab Army units have found US-made weapons and ammunition, and medicines made in Saudi Arabia and Kuwait at the positions and caches of terrorist organizations in the towns of Mardikh and Kafr Amim in Idleb southeastern countryside after crushing terrorism in them.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Absoflippinglutely unbelievable, but perfectly predictable from this government.

13-minute video of Q’s promise to reveal, arrest, and end US .01% rogue state criminals: Biblical victory OR epic PsyOp?

Q is a White House insider (and here, here). This 13-minute video explains Q’s promise to reveal, arrest, and end the ongoing illegal US rogue state empire “leaders.” The crimes of these .01% psychopaths include annually poverty and war-murdering millions, harming billions, and looting trillions (more documentation below).

Everyone who has attempted to solve any real problem on Earth has encountered the lying, looting, illegal Rogue State of America. I did so from 18 years’ work with Leaderships of both political parties in attempt to end domestic and global poverty. All we received from Leaderships in the Reagan, Bush Sr., and Clinton years were reneged promises. All we received from corporate media were lies, such as this astounding piece of spin from The New York Times. Hundreds of us have expertly and professionally explained, documented, and proven our cases.

Our Military Is Clashing With Russians While Defending Syrian Oil. Why?

Trump seems to think it's okay to choose who controls resources and who doesn't in other people's countries.

Last month, American military forces physically blocked Russian troops from proceeding down a road near the town of Rmelan, Syria. U.S. troops were acting on orders of President Trump, who said back in October that Washington would be “protecting” oil fields currently under control of the anti-Assad, Kurdish Syrian Defense Forces.

Meanwhile, the Russians are acting on behalf of Syrian president Bashar Assad, who says the state is ultimately in control of those fields. While no shots were fired in this case, the next time Moscow’s forces might not go so quietly.

Sleazy Andrew Weissmann Admits Mueller Team Tried to Ensnare Trump in Perjury Trap – To Remove Him From Office (VIDEO)

Mueller’s “pit bull” Andrew Weissmann admitted the special counsel’s team “tried to get rid of” President Trump by laying a perjury trap.

Of course President Trump didn’t fall for it.

President Trump only submitted written answers to Mueller’s team and refused to sit down for an interview with the special counsel’s prosecutors.

Many believe devil Weissmann was in charge of the entire special counsel operation and Robert Mueller was just the figurehead.

Weissmann’s comments during a Thursday appearance on MSNBC were in response to President Trump’s scorched earth rebuke of the ‘scum’ at the top of the FBI earlier this morning.

Trump blasted “dirty cops” James Comey and “scum” Peter Strzok on Thursday before calling out Mueller’s corruption in his victory speech after the senate voted to acquit him on both articles of impeachment.

“[Trump] never submitted to an interview, he never testified under oath — it’s true the same happened in the Mueller case,” Weissmann said.

America At War Forever

Hollywood practices the same censorship as CNN, the New York Times, and the rest of the presstitutes who champion war. Stone notes that we never hear the point of view from the countries that are labeled “threats,” such as Russia, China, North Korea, Iran, and Venezuela.

The Democrat and Republican political parties are also all for war. The Democrats won’t even let Tulsi Gabbard participate in the New Hampshire presidential Town Halls, because she is not a partisan of war.

Stone says that the fact that Democrat leaders such as Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden are as pro-war as Dick Cheney and the Zionist neocons “shows you how locked up America is.” As Putin said in the interviews Stone did with him, “It doesn’t make a difference who is President of the United States.” Washington’s policy is hegemony achieved through war.

‘Deranged Human Being’: Newt Gingrich Takes Aim at Adam Schiff’s Fake Trump-Putin Conspiracy

Adam Schiff, one of the key figures in the Democrats’ efforts to unseat Donald Trump, has fantasised on the Senate floor about possible secret talks between Trump and Vladimir Putin.

Former US House Speaker Newt Gingrich has ripped into Rep. Adam Schiff for pushing the Russia conspiracy again as he made the case for impeaching President Trump.

Speaking on Fox News’ The Ingraham Angle, Gingrich branded Schiff a “deranged human being” and a “pathological liar”.

“It all disintegrated. He looked like a fool. He learned nothing. He came back and lied again and again. Here we are at the end of the cycle, he goes back and decides to lie again. I think somehow people have to decide that Adam Schiff is a compulsive, uncontrollable liar.”
His rebuke was in response to Schiff hypothesising about an alleged meeting between Trump and Putin.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One could well characterize this, as "desperation on the cusp of madness"; and at the end of the day, it appears right now, that THIS is all Democrats will have from this whole, insane, and miserably concocted, process.

Maneuvering Hell for Our Advantage

When the mainstream media writes about war, even critically, the image that often comes to mind for me is an infant wrapped in plastic. That infant is naked reality, a.k.a., the present moment, suffocating and screaming for its life; the plastic smothering it are the journalistic euphemisms by which murder and terrorism turn into abstract acts of national necessity.

Thus, the recent news that the United States clobbered war-torn Afghanistan with a record number of bombs and missiles in 2019 came to us via Stars and Stripes in language protecting all concerned from raw awareness and flying shrapnel:

American aircraft released 7,423 munitions in the country in 2019, according to figures published Monday by U.S. Air Forces Central Command. Coalition aircraft flew nearly 8,800 sorties during the period, over a quarter of which carried out strikes.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is why I continue to confront the war machine in this country, and elsewhere (read: Saudi Arabia) with the war that no one really sees, except for some exceptionally ballsy journalists; and that is the genocide being created, courtesy of US-enabled Saudi troops in Yemen.

For almost 4 years now, the US/Saudi troops have visited death; maiming; and disease against Yemen's most vulnerable citizens; its women; it's children; and itgs medically fragile seniors. So, again, because, dammit, someone has to do this, I submit the following; (warning; exceptionally graphic, as in lose your lunch graphic)
Images: Yemeni children blown to bits, or maimed for life, courtesy of Saudi bombing runs

Images: Yemeni children starving to death, courtesy of US/Saudi port blockade, so food cannot get in.

Images: Yemeni children, dying of cholera, possibly weaponized (as was done in World War II

I remember, as a kid going to public school, what we used to get force-fed, in terms of just how great a country this was, and that we would never, ever do harm for economic/geopolitical gain.

And then came the Vietnam war, a with all of its horrific slaughter; drugs coming from central Asia, pouring into our inner cities; and the absolute lunatic madness of US foreign policy.

Yes , the US government is involved, and has been involved, with war crimes around the world, for profit, for quite a long period of time.

As a Christian pacifist activist, who never advocates violence, I cannot be silent, and feel a very strong moral obligation to witness to when our government, and military, are involved in war crimes, as they are doing now in Yemen.

And all the while, every intelligent commentary I have read on this crisis, ends by saying that a settlement between the Houthis and the Saudis has to be reached diplomatically, but I do not see this happening. And I have to ask; why?!?!?

FLASHBACK: How Many Millions Have Been Killed in America’s Post-9/11 Wars?

March 23rd, 2018

By Nicolas J.S. Davies

How many people have been killed in America’s post-9/11 wars? I have been researching and writing about that question since soon after the U.S. launched these wars, which it has tried to justify as a response to terrorist crimes that killed 2,996 people in the U.S. on September 11th 2001.

But no crime, however horrific, can justify wars on countries and people who were not responsible for the crime committed, as former Nuremberg prosecutor Ben Ferencz patiently explained to NPR at the time......

In 2010 Fox Interview, John Bolton Confessed He Would ‘Absolutely’ Lie About National Security Matters

Fired former White House National Security Adviser John Bolton admitted in a 2010 interview on Fox Business Channel that he would "absolutely" lie to the public and knowingly spread false information if he believed it necessary.
JANUARY 29, 2020 By Sean Davis

In a 2010 interview with Andrew Napolitano on Fox Business Channel, former White House National Security Adviser John Bolton stated that he would have no problem lying to the public if he thought it was necessary to protect national security.

Bolton, who has written a book for Simon & Shuster based on his time working on national security policy for President Donald Trump that is scheduled to be released in March of 2020, also said during the 2010 interview that government secrecy and protection of classified material

IMPEACHMENT’S BIGGEST ABSURDITY: OUR TOXIC FIXATION ON USELESS AND CORRUPTING UKRAINE AID

The temporary postponement of the Ukrainian aid was practically irrelevant considering that US assistance efforts have long fueled the poxes they promised to eradicate – especially kleptocracy, or government by thieves. A 2002 American Economic Review analysis concluded that “increases in [foreign] aid are associated with contemporaneous increases in corruption” and that “corruption is positively correlated with aid received from the United States.”

Continuing to give money to a government which is, in its very essence, flawed by massive corruption from which it will not extricate itself, is stunningly stupid, and has to be stopped.

Are Virginia Politicians Really So Fragile They'd Pass A Bill Making It Illegal To Criticize Them?

Authored by Daisy Luther via The Organic Prepper blog,

There’s a very good reason that Virginia wants to disarm civilians with a rash of new, unconstitutional laws. That’s because they seem to be modeling themselves after one of those countries where the government cannot be publicly criticized without great risk to the critic.

Yet another new bill is on the table and this one criminalizes criticism of certain government officials. The summary of HB1627, proposed by Delegate Jeffrey M. Bourne, reads:

Should this bill actually get passed by Virginia's legislature, the state will truly be at the tipping point of becoming a full-on dictatorship.

So far, U.S. mainstream media mostly fails in coverage of Mideast ‘peace plan’

The U.S. mainstream media should be calling it the Mideast “peace plan,” in quotation marks, instead of accepting the Trump/Netanyahu description as truthful. In fact, it is arguably more an “annexation plan” than anything else, although you will not find that expression in the major American news outlets.

A quick look at the U.S. coverage leading up to today’s White House announcement reveals the usual pro-Israel bias, with at least one surprising exception.

VIRGINIA CONGRESS CONTINUES GUN CONTROL FRENZY WITH 9 MORE BILLS

SOURCE: DAISY LUTHER
Despite a massive and peaceful turnout on the Lobby Day rally on January 20th, the Virginia State Congress remained totally unfazed by what the people wanted and proceeded to advance numerous unconstitutional gun laws over the following week.

While everyone has been focused on the Wuhan coronavirus, state lawmakers have been quietly eroding gun rights.

“RED FLAG” GUN LAW PASSED
Proving they don’t care at all about the opinions of the people of Virginia, the state’s Senate passed a “red flag” gun law only two days later. Here’s the summary of SB240.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

To all those Virginians who find such legislation offensive, and flying in the face of the 2nd Amendment to the Constitution of this country, please find out which Virginia legislators are supporting this legislation, and if they (allegedly) represent you, call their offices in a firm, but polite tone, and let them know if they continue along this path, that they will be voted out of office in the next election cycle with great enthusiasm, never to return to even a position as a public dog-catcher in that state.

Trump’s long-awaited Middle East peace plan calls for Palestinian state, settlement freeze

WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. officials say President Donald Trump’s much anticipated Middle East peace plan calls for the creation of a State of Palestine with its capital in portions of east Jerusalem, ending speculation as to whether his administration, in preparing a proposal without input from Palestinian leaders, would abandon a “two-state resolution” to the conflict.

Kim Jong-Un’s Aunt Appears Alive After Six Years of Media Saying He Killed Her

The problem with these stories is that they largely emanate from one source: notorious conservative South Korean daily the Chosun Ilbo, which has a long and detailed history of printing lurid fake news. Yet Western press are dependent on the Chosun Ilbo for much of their reporting. As Business Insider said while falsely reporting that Kim Kyong-hui, aunt of Kim Jong-un was dead, “the Chosun Ilbo is generally considered a reliable source.”

CNN Analyst Caught RED HANDED Creating Fake News - He Even ADMITS to It!

Not long after CNN went apoplectic over one of their reporters being dismissed as a “liberal hack” by Sen. Martha McSally, one of their analysts was caught fabricating quotes out of thin air.
Such was the case of CNN’s Joe Lockhart, who, while reporting on the Senate trial, literally invented a conversation between two Republican senators that he tweeted out to his followers. As of writing, nearly 10k people shared his tweet, and nearly 40k “liked” it.

“Overheard convo between two Republicans Senators who only watch Fox News” began the lie. “‘is this real stuff? I haven’t heard any of this before. I thought it was all about a server. If half the stuff Schiff is saying is true, we’re up shit’s creek. Hope the White House has exculpatory evidence'” Lockhart wrote, quoting two Republican Senators that exist only in his head.

After a number of users pointed out how cartoonish that conversation sounds, Lockhart admitted that he made the whole thing up.

Phillip Schneider, Staff Writer
Waking Times

If you read the news, you’ve likely heard about the “deadly” coronavirus in China. You’ve probably seen videos of sick people and heard about the impending doom that our great nation faces if we don’t do something about this grave threat coming from China.

But have you ever thought about why we’re hearing so much about this virus, despite it affecting only a relatively small number of people in another country? Who benefits from a mass media hype around the Coronavirus?

1. This Story is Getting Massive Hype

No one can deny the incredible hype that this story is getting. But, why?

REALITY CHECK: Coronavirus fear porn

China is shutting down, or so we’re being told. Cities are on lockdown. Disneyland is closed. New Year is cancelled. Every day, China closes down more theatres or other more public spaces in their desperate attempts to thwart the spread of this terrible coronavirus.

The headlines tell this virus is “mutated”, and that China’s “lockdown” is affecting 33 million people.It all sounds very scary.

The reality is that 26 people have died.

For comparison’s sake, 80,000 people died of flu in 2018 in the United States alone. (at least, according to the CDC).

Coronavirus – or rather, this particular strain of coronavirus, as they are very common and mostly harmless – has had 800 reported cases to go along with those 26 reported deaths. That’s a mortality rate of just over three per cent.
