Rep. Devin Nunes: NYT reporters are paid to write fake news by Democrat Super PACs

On March 15, 2018, in a televised interview on Fox News, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) said something stunning.

Beginning at the 5:20 mark in the video below, Congressman Nunes upbraided the “friends of the Democrats in the mainstream media”. Referring specifically to the New York Times, Nunes said the newspaper’s reporters “are heavily funded by Democratic Super PACs,” which the Times “should have disclosed”.

On March 12, 2018, after a 14-month investigation and who knows how much in taxpayer dollars, the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence announced that they had completed their Russia investigation and found no evidence of collusion, coordination or conspiracy between the Trump campaign and the Russians.

According to what is happening in a place called the real world, the truth is that business for the media is horrible.

Propaganda Press Flailing over Amelia Earhart 

Here we go again. In what looks for all the world like desperation on the part of our national opinion molding apparatus, they’ve revived the story that some bones and parts of a skull found in 1940 on the small remote island of Nikumaroro (Gardner Island) belonged to the famous aviator, Amelia Earhart, who was lost in the Pacific, along with navigator Fred Noonan, on a trip around the world in 1937. Those bones had been examined long ago and it was determined that they belonged to a male who was shorter than Earhart and have long since been lost, but now, would you believe, through the miracle of modern computer techniques, a single professor emeritus “expert” is telling us that those lost bones were almost certainly Amelia Earhart’s. On top of that, this new “discovery” got saturation coverage right across the permitted political spectrum from Fox News to National Public Radio.

Unprecedented Western Anti-Russia Hysteria

Accusing Russia of poisoning former spy/double agent Sergey Skripal is a scandalous Big Lie, a colossal hoax, an anti-Kremlin conspiracy, a reckless geopolitical game.

No proof suggests Moscow had anything to do with Skripal’s poisoning, no possible motive exists to have wanted to do it – with everything to lose and nothing to gain.

Yet Britain, Washington, France, Germany, and US-controlled NATO declared Russia guilty by accusation for Skripal’s poisoning – an incident clearly the Kremlin had nothing to do with.

What’s going on is a UK-led conspiracy to unjustifiably frame the Kremlin for the incident – Skripal’s poisoning a false flag wanting Russia vilified, marginalized, weakened, contained and isolated beyond earlier attempts to achieve these objectives in the post-WW II era.

Russia is strong, resilient and free from US-led Western control. Escalated vilification risks potentially serious consequences if things go too far.

MPs retweet claim that Porton Down scientists can’t identify nerve agent as Russian

Several MPs have retweeted claims that scientists at the British lab investigating the poisoning of ex-spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter are actually struggling to identify the source of the nerve agent used.

Craig Murray, the former UK ambassador to Uzbekistan turned blogger, wrote on his website that scientists at Porton Down, the center responsible for identifying the nerve agent allegedly used in the attack against the Skripals, have failed to find evidence of Russian “culpability.” He said a “well-placed” source in the Foreign Office told him.

Murray added scientists had been “resentful” over the pressure put on them to prove the military-grade nerve agent is of Russian manufacture. The blogger’s comments and concerns were retweeted by Labour MP Chris Williamson, a frequent guest on RT, and the Scottish National Party’s Douglas Chapman.

'The American people will judge who is honorable and who is not': James Comey hits out at Trump just one day after the former FBI Director's No. 2, Andrew McCabe, was fired

Comey tweeted Saturday: 'Mr. President, the American people will hear my story very soon. And they can judge for themselves who is honorable and who is not.'

Brennan posted an angry tweet on Saturday in response to Trump’s tweet hours earlier celebrating Sessions' decision to fire McCabe.

'When the full extent of your venality, moral turpitude, and political corruption becomes known, you will take your rightful place as a disgraced demagogue in the dustbin of history,' Brennan tweeted early Saturday.

'You may scapegoat Andy McCabe, but you will not destroy America...America will triumph over you.'

Syrian War For Dummies - Three Versions

As the Ghouta campaign continues to unfold, we should expect that both politicians and mainstream media will give us - in the words of philosopher and theologian Reinhold Niebuhr - "necessary illusion and emotionally potent oversimplifications" intended to shape our perceptions of events.

This worldview is what BBC filmmaker Adam Curtis accurately characterized as a 'goodies and baddies' dualistic vision of global events which keeps the Western public under the illusion that its own political leaders are perpetually driven by concern over human rights, defending the weak and oppressed, and spreading democracy over and against the unenlightened megalomaniac dictators of the world who are simply bent on brutalizing their own people.

The curious case of Parkland school shooting student survivor Emma Gonzalez

At the 5:45 mark, the anchor asks:

“Hey guys, are you gonna be able to go back to school this week or next week? Are you going to go back into the building where this happened?”

With a deep sigh, Gonzalez says:

“Well, first of all, the freshmen building is being torn down. But the rest of the school is staying up and, as soon as we can, we are going to go back into the school, as soon as they say school is on Monday, I’m going to be there I’m pretty sure, unless I have interviews or somewhere to be, we are going to be at school with the people who need us. We need to stand with our peers.“

But an IT specialist named Dan Cromer (via James Fetzer) claims to have discovered two stunning things about Emma Gonzalez:

Emma Gonzalez is David Hogg’s cousin.
Instead of being a high school student, Emma Gonzalez is a professional actress who had graduated from NYU.

I’m happy to report some good news coming out of New Orleans thanks to the excellent investigative reporting of Ali Winston with The Verge.

As I reported two weeks ago, Winston helped to uncover a secret predictive policing program that had been ongoing for 6 years by the New Orleans PD in cooperation with CIA-connected Palantir Technologies. The program had been designed to operate behind the cover of a philanthropic partnership orchestrated by political operative James Carville so as to avoid having to disclose the details to citizens and even to their elected representatives in the city council. Now it appears that the intrepid reporting of Ali Winston has led to the abrupt cancelling of the program just a short time after the initial article was published.

This is investigative reporting, done right; bravo, Mr. Wilson, bravo!!

China to bar people with bad 'social credit' from planes, trains

China said it will begin applying its so-called social credit system to flights and trains and stop people who have committed misdeeds from taking such transport for up to a year.

People who would be put on the restricted lists included those found to have committed acts like spreading false information about terrorism and causing trouble on flights, as well as those who used expired tickets or smoked on trains, according to two statements issued on the National Development and Reform Commission’s website on Friday.

Those found to have committed financial wrongdoings, such as employers who failed to pay social insurance or people who have failed to pay fines, would also face these restrictions, said the statements which were dated March 2.

It added that the rules would come into effect on May 1.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Look for such rules starting to take effect here in the US, in the not too distant future.

But hey, there's always an upside, right?!?

Look for car ownership in China to begin to spiral like crazy, if public transport is out of the question, because of some real - or imagined- slight against its Central Government.

As the Free Thought Project reported earlier this month, a jaw-dropping independent investigation has revealed that hundreds of children, some as young as 11-years-old, are estimated to have been drugged, beaten, and raped over the last several decades in a single town. According to the investigation, the abuse was allowed and is continued to be allowed because authorities look the other way. Now, TFTP has confirmed that this is indeed the case.

The investigation claims that allegations dating back to the 1980s were mishandled by authorities, who repeatedly failed to punish a network of abusers, according to the Telegraph.

According to a new report, it appears police were told from within their own department—via an internal memo—claiming that “in most cases the sex is consensual.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is only the monied, in any country, who can carry on with these kinds of bestial abuses of children with impunity, and suffer no consequences for their behaviour.

If you have young children, and are thinking about going on holiday in the UK, you really should think again.

A group of US lawmakers led by Senator Bob Menendez told the State Department in a letter that any sale of Russian S-400 air defense system should lead to new punitive measures as stipulated in the Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act (CAATSA).

“We are writing today to specifically inquire about reported negotiations between Russia and certain countries over sales of the Russian government’s S-400 air defense system and whether these reported deals could trigger mandatory CAATSA sanctions,” the letter said on Friday. “Under any circumstance, a S-400 sale would be considered a ‘significant transaction’ and we expect that any sale would result in designations.”

The lawmakers also requested that the State Department provide detailed analysis on the current status of Russian S-400 talks with China, Turkey, India, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and any other country.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In that last statement, Senator Menendez is definitely heading into "" territory.

Does the Senator suffer from such a bad case of SMD (selective memory disorder), that he cannot remember that in 2014, the US sponsored the coup in Ukraine which unseated the duly elected President Yanukovich, and replaced him with Western Centric Poroshenko, a gentleman most likely with family mob connections, and assassins on speed dial?!?

President Obama admitted as much, as reported from in the following article:

Obama admits that the US brokered a deal in support of regime change in Ukraine

Now, as to preventing other nations in dialogue with Russia about the S-400 weaponry, such as China, Turky, India Saudia Arabia and Qatar; the system works far better, and is a lot cheaper than anything the US has to offer.

As described in Wikipedia:

The S-400 has been described, as of 2017, as "one of the best air-defence systems currently made."

The fact that the US's military industrial complex appears to be incapable of producing anything, to date, which can best it, is not Russia's fault.

To deny these countries access to it, is a form of international restraint of trade, and sanction Russia for selling this to them, creates insult added to injury, as though relations with Russia are not bad enough at the moment.

I would politely suggest, Senator, that what you COULD do, from an American perspective, is go on a fact-finding mission, as to why the American military complex, at this point, has nothing really to compete with the S-400, and just what they intend to do about it.

Of course, THAT... would be logical.

Police launch murder inquiry over death of Nikolai Glushkov

Police have launched a murder investigation into the death of the Russian businessman Nikolai Glushkov after a pathologist concluded he died from compression to the neck, suggesting he may have been strangled by hand or ligature.

The Metropolitan police’s counter-terrorism command is retaining its lead role in the investigation “because of the associations Mr Glushkov is believed to have had” but has cautioned that there was no suggestion of a link with the attempted murders of the Russian former spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter, Yulia, in Salisbury almost two weeks ago.

The political row between Britain and Russia was mounting after the Russian foreign ministry said it was summoning the UK ambassador, Laurie Bristow, for a meeting on Saturday, Russian news agencies reported.

At the time of his death, Glushkov was about to defend a claim against him by the Russian airline Aeroflot at the commercial court in London, where he was accused of fraud.

OPCW: No member states known to possess ‘Novichok-class’ nerve agents

The UN chemical weapons watchdog said none of its member states have declared possessing ‘Novichok-class’ nerve agent, which London claims was used in the poisoning of ex-double agent Sergei Skripal.

“There is no record of the Novichok group of nerve agents having been declared by a state party to the Chemical Weapons Convention,” the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) said in a press release on Friday. Nearly all countries in the UN are members to the OPCW, except for Egypt, Israel, North Korea and South Sudan.

Mar 17 10:24

UPDATED: UK’s “novichok” claim exposed as lies: what is the current reality of the Skripal case?

I have now received confirmation from a well placed FCO source that Porton Down scientists are not able to identify the nerve gas as being of Russian manufacture, and have been resentful of the pressure being placed on them to do so. Porton Down would only sign up to the formulation “of a type developed by Russia” after a rather difficult meeting where this was agreed as a compromise formulation.

…Until this week, the near universal belief among chemical weapons experts, and the official position of the OPCW, was that “Novichoks” were at most a theoretical research programme which the Russians had never succeeded in actually synthesising and manufacturing. That is why they are not on the OPCW list of banned chemical weapons.

Porton Down is still not certain it is the Russians who have apparently synthesised a “Novichok”. Hence “Of a type developed by Russia”. Note developed, not made, produced or manufactured.

Mar 17 10:17


So why poison Skripal? Because it would look to knee-jerk reactionaries like the Russians 'got revenge'. But the Russians had already tried and convicted and imprisoned Skripal -- they could have executed him then (or poisoned him in prison). Instead, they gave him back in a swap. Another player poisoning Skripal would serve the saber-rattling objectives of a military-industrial-intel complex in the West and serve radical left/right political objectives in the US and UK, setting up the Russians a la the USS Maine.

Until I see something that convinces me that there is an 'otherwise', this is my opinion on this issue.

Louisville, Kentucky – Three innocent men have been released from prison after serving a combined total of more than 50 years for crimes they did not commit, and they all have one thing in common—a homicide detective who they blame for their wrongful convictions.

Edwin Chandler spent nine years in prison after he was convicted of shooting and killing store clerk Brenda Whitfield during a robbery in 1993. However, he was exonerated in 2010 after it was determined that another man, who was already serving 20 years on an unrelated assault charge, was responsible for the robbery and the murder.

Chandler sued the city of Louisville and the police department and received $8.5 million in damages. However, the officer who he blames for forcing him to give a false confession faced no repercussions.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What kind of ba*tards is the State of Kentucky hiring as its police officers?!?

IF this is how Kentucky police interprets the phrase "to protect and serve", were I a resident of that state, I would be voting with my feet, and getting the hell out of there, and immediately.

Four Mysterious Deaths in the UK Authorities Probably Won't Be Reinvestigating

With police said to be preparing to reinvestigate apparently suspicious deaths, previously ruled to be via suicide or natural causes, Sputnik News lists four high profile potential political assassination cases that likely won't be reopened.

UK Home Secretary Amber Rudd has said police and domestic intelligence agency MI5 will probe allegations of Russian state involvement in at least 14 deaths in the country over the past few years, to see if they were in fact political assassinations.

In a letter to Yvette Cooper, Chair of the House of Commons Home Affairs Committee, Rudd was quick to stress investigations and coroner's inquests into these deaths at the time "did not discover evidence of foul play", but the circumstances will now be looked at again.

The UN has decided it's possibly Facebook's fault things are going so badly in Myanmar. Muslims have been fleeing the country in droves thanks to Myanmar security forces engaging in widespread acts of violence (including rape) against them, urged on by hardline nationalist monks.

For all intents and purposes, Facebook is Myanmar's internet. Loosening of restrictions on social media access has resulted in a large portion of the population getting all their news (along with all the hate speech the UN is complaining about) via the social media giant. The UN is looking into genocide accusations but has decided to speak up against Facebook first.

Marzuki Darusman, chairman of the UN Independent International Fact-Finding Mission on Myanmar, told reporters that social media had played a “determining role” in Myanmar.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Instead of wiping out logical opinions which differ from that of the "official narrative" in this country, perhaps Facebook should be focused on wiping out true hate speech against the Rohingyas on line in Myanmar.

And speculatively, was some kind of "financial arrangement"created by the government of Myanmar with Facebook to insure that the hate speech against the Rohingyas stayed up, and did not get self-censored?!?

Just curious.

The UK Blames Russia for the Spy Poisoning: It’s Time to Set Our Emotions Aside and Look at the Facts

The world held its breath watching the British government rant and rave. The threats were truly scary and the ultimatum was grim enough to give one goosebumps. Finally it all boiled down to the expulsion of 23 diplomats, threats to freeze suspicious bank accounts, the suspension of some bilateral contacts, a revoked invitation for the Russian FM to visit the UK, and the cancellation of plans by senior officials and members of the royal family to travel to see the World Cup games.

Diplomatic relations will not be severed. Russia was not added to the list of state sponsors of terrorism, as the PM had threatened to do. Instead, the British government announced some rather symbolic retaliation measures, some of which are nothing more than compliance with the Criminal Finances Act that has been in effect since 2017.

Ex-FBI Asst. Director Says Upcoming Inspector General Report Is "Pure TNT"

Former FBI Assistant Director Chris Swecker said today that a highly anticipated report from the DOJ's Inspector General Michael Horowitz will contain "some pure TNT." Horowitz has been investigating the conduct of the FBI's top brass surrounding the 2016 election for over a year. He also uncovered over 50,000 text messages between two anti-Trump / pro-Clinton FBI employees directly involved in the exoneration of Clinton and the counterintelligence operation launched against the Trump campaign.

Swecker: “The behavior if it’s manifested in the action with your thumb on the scale of a particular investigation, one way or the other, that’s borderline criminal behavior — manipulating an investigation. I think this IG report is going to be particularly impactful, more so than any of these useless congressional investigations. I think you’re going to see some pure TNT come out in this IG report.”

Russia Claims US Deploys Warships For Imminent Attack On Syria, Trains Militants For False Flag Attack

Well, it appears that Assad is a relentless glutton for punishment, because not even a year later, the WaPo reported two weeks ago that the US is considering a new military action against Syria for - what else - retaliation against Assad's latest chemical attack, which took place several weeks earlier.

How do we know Assad (and apparently, Russia) was behind the attack? We don't: in fact, former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, in a moment of bizarre honesty, admitted that he really doesn't know much at all about "whoever conducted the attacks." But hey: just like it is "highly likely" that Russia poisoned the former Russian double agent in the UK - with no proof yet - so it is "highly likely" that a clearly irrational Assad was once again behind an attack which he knew would provoke violent and aggressive retaliation by the US, and once again destabilize his regime.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF in fact what General Rudskoy is stating is true, we are seriously looking at war with Russia over Syria.

The "President Whisperers" around President Trump have gently fed him the koolaid over time, probably on an industrial-strength IV drip, that the US could actually triumph over Russia in this circumcumstance, which is not at all certain, given the Russian military's understanding of terrain, and superior weapons systems, which have been tested, successfully, in Syria.

I am completely disgusted at a US government and American Deep State, which still believes they can lie to the American public with impunity, and get away with it; NOT THIS TIME!!

Because the logical question to ask is, why would Al Assad order a chemical attack against his own people, when his, and the Russian militaries, are winning the fight against the jihadists?!?!

The logical answer is, he would not, and has not.

The demonization is a huge boost to the power and profit of the military/security complex and prevents President Trump from normalizing relations. The military/security’s budget and power require a major enemy, and Russia is the designated enemy and will not be allowed to escape that assigned role.

No One Mentions That The Russian Trail Leads To Democratic Lobbyists

The media has focused not on K Street but on the Russian ties of President Donald Trump’s associates. They list the reprehensible Kremlin-associated figures for whom members of his inner circle worked, the most notorious being Viktor Yanukovich, the deposed president of Ukraine, and fugitive oligarch, Dymtro Firtash. But both of these “repulsive” figures were also advised by Democratic top dogs, who likely earned large multiples of what the “small fry” Trump associates took home.

In pushing its Manchurian-candidate-Trump narrative, the media fail to mention the much deeper ties of Democratic lobbyists to Russia. Don’t worry, the media seems to say: Even though they are representing Russia, the lobbyists are good upstanding citizens, not like the Trump people. They can be trusted with such delicate matters.

How Facebook protects Israel

The Israeli authorities are exerting pressure on Facebook to comply with more of their demands.

Earlier this month, members of Israel’s parliament, the Knesset, discussed how to suppress content of which they disapproved on the social media website.

One objective was to get Facebook to ban pictures of Ahmad Nasser Jarrar, a Palestinian extrajudicially executed by the Israeli army in February. Human rights groups have concluded that the military sought to kill, rather than arrest, Jarrar, a suspect in the shooting death of an Israeli settler in the occupied West Bank.

Uri Maklev, an Israeli lawmaker, claimed there is a “correlation between social networks and terror operations,” and that “Facebook is responsible for what is being done on its platform” and must do “everything to remove such content.”

According to Israel’s state attorney office, the Israeli government requests an average of 12,000 cases of content to be removed from Facebook each year.

"Steele was an MI6 undercover agent in Moscow around the time when Skripal was recruited and handed over Russian secrets to the MI6.

Pablo Miller, who worked for Steele's private company, lived in the same town as Skripal and they seems to have been friends since Miller had recruited him. Miller or someone else attempted to cover up the connection to Steele by editing his LinkedIn entry."

Russian spy poisoning: chemist says non-state actor couldn't carry out attack

The Russian chemist who revealed the existence of the novichok family of chemical agents to the world has dismissed the notion that a non-state actor could be behind the poisoning of former spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter in Salisbury, England, earlier this month.

Vil Mirzayanov, 83, said the chemical was too dangerous for anyone but a “high-level senior scientist” to handle and that even he – who worked for 30 years inside the secret military installation where novichok was developed and gained extensive personal experience in handling the agent – would not know how to weaponize it.

He said he did not see how a criminal organization or other non-state group could pull off such an attack.

The leaks come from seasoned investigators who say the investigation is tainted for reasons far above their pay grades. Law enforcement officers are trained to hunt and find bad guys and when their own bosses become an obstacle to that process — especially in a high-profile case like this one — suspicions begin to spill over.

The hunger for a war against Russia is reaching a very intense place in the Bowels of Power in DC; not because it is morally right, but it might be something with which the US government wants to distract us. There is a financial collapse coming, and one might say, relatively soon.

But the US government is having one hell of a time, because this time, the American people are very skeptical, as they have every right to be, when it comes to its leadership declaring war, or just starting to attack, the allegedly bad government it doesn't like.

But the lost credibility of this government is causing its people to never believe anything it says, ever again. Credibility is delicate; and once it has been broken, and shown to be a sham, that goverment loses it forever.

Corbyn Smeared as 'Russian Stooge' for Requesting Evidence on Poisoned Spy

The leftist leader of Britain?s opposition Labour Party is under attack, simply because he calmly called for an investigation in line with international law.
On March 4, a former Russian spy who had been a double agent for the British government was found unconscious in Salisbury, England. Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia had reportedly been poisoned, and were hospitalized in critical condition.

A week later, the United Kingdom?s Conservative Prime Minister Theresa May claimed the Russian-made nerve agent Novichok had been used in the attack. She said the Russian government was likely behind the attack, although she also raised the possibility that Russia had lost control of the nerve agent and it was used by another actor.

Lurid Trump allegations made by Louise Mensch and co-writer came from hoaxer

Explosive allegations about Donald Trump made by online writers with large followings among Trump critics were based on bogus information from a hoaxer who falsely claimed to work in law enforcement.

Claude Taylor tweeted fake details of criminal inquiries into Trump that were invented by a source whose claim to work for the New York attorney general was not checked, according to emails seen by the Guardian. The allegations were endorsed as authentic and retweeted by his co-writer Louise Mensch.

The source’s false tips included an allegation, which has been aggressively circulated by Mensch and Taylor, that Trump’s inactive fashion model agency is under investigation by New York authorities for possible sex trafficking.

Neocon Specter of John Bolton Looms Over Trump White House

John Bolton as National Security Adviser, with Nikki Haley in Bolton’s old job at the U.N. and fundamentalist Christian dominionist Mike Pompeo moving from CIA director to replace Rex Tillerson as Secretary of State, means that the neocons — never happy with the prospects of a Trump administration – will, once again, be in the driver’s seat of American foreign policy after a nine-year hiatus. Bolton’s tenure at the U.N. was punctuated by his own undiplomatic outbursts, as well as those of his spokesman, Richard Grenell, Trump’s nominee to be US ambassador to Germany. Bolton strenuously pushed the neocon foreign policy line, as spelled out in the charter for the movement founded in 1997, the Project for the New American Century (PNAC).

Saudis in Secret Peace Talks With Yemen’s Houthis

Publicly, Saudi Arabia has shown no sign of looking for a negotiated end to the war in Yemen. Behind the scenes, however, they’ve been in secret talks with the Shi’ite Houthis for the past two months.

Three years into the Saudi invasion, signs are that there is some war weariness, and that they’ve been making secretive approaches to the Houthis, by way of neighboring Oman, for the past two months. Diplomats say the Houthis are eager for a diplomatic agreement.

One senior Houthi confirmed that the talks have been underway, with spokesman Mohammed Abdul-Salam repeatedly traveling to Oman for meetings with Saudi officials, and trying to carve out a “comprehensive political solution.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF, in fact, these reports are true, there may be a reason for hope in Yemen.

Return of the Neo-Cons: Mike Pompeo and the Death of Diplomacy

Secretary Tillerson was far from an ideal choice, but his anointed successor at the State Department – Mike Pompeo – may ditch diplomacy all together and start a war!

We both attended West Point. That’s where the commonalities end. I’ve been a soldier opposed to (endless) war; he’ll be a statesman opposed to peace. That should give us cause for pause.

So who is Mike Pompeo? The short answer: a startlingly hawkish Tea Party Republican oilman with a penchant for combative rhetoric and a near hysterical hatred for Iran. But he’s smart – valedictorian of his West Point class and a graduate of Harvard – and that makes him even more dangerous. His primary qualification, though, is his loyalty and propensity for mind-melding with his boss, Donald Trump. For the last year, he often personally delivered Trump’s presidential daily briefing (PDB) at the White House each morning and they agree on just about everything; as Trump says of Pompeo: "we’re always on the same wavelength."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Under Pompeo's watch, we may well be looking at more wars, until we wind up in a war with Russia.

I would not be surprised at seeing an attempt at the reinstitution of the draft in this country, this time, coming for our young women as well as our young men.

GOP Leaders Want to Delay Yemen War Powers Vote

Expectations are that the Senate War Powers vote on the Yemen War, SJ Res 54, will come up for debate and a vote next week. That may not happen if the Republican leadership gets its way, however, as many are opposed to the bill, and are trying to stall a vote.

Some leaders are arguing the issue is too “divisive,” and that the matter should be sent back to a committee for closer study. Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN), by contrast, endorsed the Pentagon’s argument, saying the US does so much military engagement around the world that it would be dangerous to think the War Powers Act could apply to all of it.

But of course the whole point of the War Powers Act is that it does apply to any commitment of US forces overseas. It’s just that in recent years, presidents have relied on catch-all authorizations with vague limits to join some wars, and other times simply assumed Congress wouldn’t mind, as they generally have not minded.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The reality of this situation is, having armed, and provided guidance and mid-air refueling to the Saudi military, the US government has colluded in Saudi war crimes in Yemen:

There is nothing "divisive" about this; it is as real a statement of fact as are all the other horrible facts about this sordid military campaign in Yemen, 3 years on, and with no resolution in sight:

Saudi coalition killed hundreds of children in Yemen, confidential UN report claims

Because Yemen cannot grow its own food, and it has to be imported, the Saudis, with US military assistance, have blockaded the ports, meaning that malnutrition is causing death, and a massive health crisis for the country.

Cholera (perhaps weaponised?!?) and diptheria now haunt Yemen:
Images: Yemen malnutrition has generated a cholera crisis

The skyrocketing increase in massive fetal abnormalites, cancers and stillbirths in Yemen indicate that the Saudis have used depleted uranium, with the predictable results on Yemen's children:

Image: Yemeni child exposed to du in the womb (image courtesy of RUPTLY

In my world, the poisoning of a child in the womb with this atrocious weapon, is criminal and inhuman beyond belief. And what gets me, is that the man who ordered this campaign, is not at all an uneducated man; Prince Mohammed Bin Salman, is very bright, university educated, has a law degree, and wound up 2nd in his class.

But could his hatred of the Iranian Shiias, who are acting as advisors to the Houthi rebels, be so great as to compel him to order the death, by direct military assaults; starvation, and disease, of non-combatants, and Yemen's children?!?

Sadly, the short answer here is "Yes"; and as a Christian pacifist activist, I will have to continue to bear witness to these atrocities on this site as long as I have breath.

When you destroy the children of a country, you destroy that country's future.

History will not be kind to this man; I understand that he is known by many honorifics in Saudi Arabia, because he is Saudi royalty.

History, however, will remember him as the Butcher of Yemen.

Senator Corker, the US government has to stop this madness; as you are perfectly aware, according to our Constitution, only Congress can declare war. It has not done so in Yemen.

I don't know what your portfolio holds in terms of weapons stocks, but I do know approximately, your net worth: Google has scrubbed the articles on this, but there are always other places to go to find such facts:

Senator Corker Undervalued his Wealth by Millions The story, from 2015, stated the following:

And Senator Schatz, whose office I called last week, to encourage you to vote for this bill, you, sir, owe me a return phone call!

Or have your alleged constituents with a point of view on this war different from that of your own, become....expendable and irrelevant in the State of Hawaii?!?

Just checking, sir.

McMaster: US Troops Will Stay Until Syria Is Stabilized

Despite conceding that the US and others had effectively liberated “100%” of ISIS-held territory in Syria, National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster dismissed the idea that US forces might withdraw from the country any time soon.

“We have more work to do,” McMaster insisted, saying the US will stay “until ISIS is fully defeated, population centers are stabilized, and refugees can safely return home.” This vision of stability also appears to depend heavily on imposing a regime change in Syria.

Underscoring the focus on regime change, McMaster demanded that “all civilized nations” come together to punish both Russia and Iran for backing the Syrian government. He warned Assad would not have impunity, and neither would Russia or Iran.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation of McMasterese: the US is going to "neutralize" Syria before it tackles regime change in Tehran, even if that potentially means war with Russia.

Syrian army captures key rebel stronghold in Eastern Ghouta as 12,500 civilians evacuate

The Syrian army captured the Hamouriyeh district in the capital Damascus' Eastern Ghouta countryside after the withdrawal of the Failaq al-Rahman rebel group as 12,500 people evacuated that area on Thursday, a monitor group reported.

The Syrian government forces have started deploying in Hamouriyeh and set up their positions in that area amid an ongoing evacuation process of civilians from that area, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

This comes amid heavy shelling from the government side on the remaining posts of Failaq al-Rahman in the towns of Jisreen, Zamalka, Kafar Batna and Saqba, said the London-based watchdog group.

The observatory added that 12,500 civilians have left the areas of Failaq al-Rahman rebels through Hamouriyeh on Thursday, marking the largest wave of evacuation from civilians since the Russian-backed humanitarian pause for the civilian evacuation started two weeks ago.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Syria, with Russia's help, is winning this on the ground, and the Western/US jihadis are being expunged.

This is why you can most probably expect to see yet another chemical attack against civilians, to be blamed on the Syrians and Russia, as the US pretext for going in, full bore, and invading the country.

This means that we will most likely wind up in a shooting war with Russia in Syria, and it may well be a war that the US military cannot win; they don't have the weaponry; the troop strength; the manufacturing, or the money to insure a positive outcome to a conventional war against Russia in Syria.

Obama DOJ Ordered 500,000 Fugitives Deleted From Background Check Database

The Obama administration ordered the removal of over 500,000 fugitives with outstanding arrest warrants from the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) in late 2016, according to testimony from Acting FBI Deputy Director David Bowdich.

Bowdich confirmed a November report from the Washington Post which set the figure at "tens of thousands," after Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) asked him if more than 500,000 names were dropped from the database.

The FBI purged the names from the database after the Justice Department changed its legal interpretation of “fugitive from justice” to say it pertains only to wanted people who have crossed state lines.

Webmaster's Commentary: 


This is one of the things about Obama, besides his faux populism, which used to drive me up the wall; he was sneakily enormously punitive to people he didn't like.

And how better to welcome an incoming president, not YOUR choice, he thought, than make sure that 50,000 or more criminal fugitives were still on the streets, and not getting arrested for their crimes?!??

This idea must have given him great pleasure.

After all, he massively increased the number of extrajudicial drone assassinations committed by US forces overseas way beyond those of his predecessor; it must have given him a real sense of power over life and death itself, even when he had to realize that the drone assassinations were creating more radicalized individuals among the survivors, leading to a nearly perpetual state of war in the Middle East and Africa, as we are seeing now.

US and UK Trying to 'Iraq' Russia - What's Really Happening

Whether Theresa May comprehends the situation, whether she resolves the internal issues, whether she's the person who's being pushed towards this decision, to blow up this scandal, it's a whole different question. However, the fact that the UK and the US share the opinion that Russia basically posts a chemical weapon threat to practically the entire world is truly incredibly disturbing. Why? Because it's obvious they're trying to create a brand-new model for the demonization of Russia. They're trying to take the pressure on Russia to a whole new level, trying to convince the world that Russia is dangerous not just because of how they've "wronged Ukraine," or because they've "annexed Crimea," but because they threaten the world with chemical weapons.

Paris, Berlin, DC Rescue May From Having to Prove Her Accusations

Imagine an investigation for attempted homicide by gunshot without the gun, bullet, ballistics match, fingerprints, powder burns, witnesses, shooter, intention, motive. You can’t imagine? Neither could the French foreign minister, Jean-Yves Le Drian.

On Wednesday Le Drian announced France’s “full confidence in the investigations that our British partners are carrying out” on the March 4 nerve agent incident involving Sergei and Yulia Skripal and a local police detective in Salisbury.

Putin ‘extremely concerned’ over UK’s ‘destructive, provocative’ stance in Skripal case – Kremlin

In his first public reaction to the UK measures against Russia in ex-spy Sergei Skripal’s poisoning, President Vladimir Putin said he was “extremely concerned” by the “destructive and provocative” stance of the UK.
A “detailed discussion” of the current crisis in Russian-UK relations was held when Putin met with top officials from the Russian government, military and security services on Thursday, presidential press secretary Dmitry Peskov said. “Extreme concern was expressed about the destructive and provocative stance taken by the British side,” the spokesman added.

It was Putin’s first public reaction since the UK announced steps against Moscow on Wednesday. Accusing Russia of using a chemical weapon on British soil, Prime Minister Theresa May said the UK was expelling 23 diplomats, limiting ties and freezing Russian state assets.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This attempted poisoning certainly does not have what I would characterize as a "Putin signature" on it.

Why would he order it done, and so sloppily that it hit over 20 people more than the intended victims, Skripal and his daughter?!?

What in heaven's name would he - or Russia - have gained by it, when the damage Skripal inflicted on the Russian intel infrastructure happened years ago?!?

The short answer is, nothing.

But we have a very embattled British Prime Minister, perhaps, intending to deflect some very real British rage and frustration about how she is handling the Brexit issue with the EU; perhaps she thought that blaming and shaming the Russian government for something it may well not have done was "just the ticket".

And what is that old phrase of Rom Emanuel's "Never let a good crisis go to waste"?!?

There are a large number of people who might have wanted to see Skripal dead.

We don't know enough about what really happened to lay the foundation for an evidence chain yet; that may only come about when Skripal and his daughter are conscious enough to give investigators a timeline about when they became ill, and what they noticed right before that happened.

But the dismissal of diplomats, coupled with sanctions, can be a very nasty prelude to a potential shooting war with Russia, which would be the most ham-fistedly, pig-headedly stupid thing in the world for the west to do right now, for innumerable reasons.

I am hoping Nato Secretary General Stoltenberg's refusal to "drink the Koolaid" on this issue yesterday, by NOT invocing Article 5 of the UN Charter, as May begged him to do yesterday, will through heaping amounts of ice-cold water over this whole "Russia did it" thing.

Facebook ‘Hid Webpages’ And Bragged About Ability To Influence Elections

While many leftists in the United States are still screeching about “election meddling” by Russia, they may want to take a long look at Facebook. The social media giant actually hid webpages and bragged about its ability to influence elections.

According to The Intercept, when Mark Zuckerberg was asked if Facebook had influenced the outcome of the 2016 presidential election, the founder, and CEO dismissed the notion that the site even had such power as “crazy.” It was a disingenuous remark. Facebook’s website had, in fact, an entire section devoted to touting the “success stories” of political campaigns that used the social network to influence electoral outcomes. That page, however, is now gone, even as the 2018 congressional primaries get underway.

Amazon turns over record amount of customer data to US law enforcement: The company's fifth transparency report reveals more customer data was handed to US law enforcement in the first-half of last year than ever before.

Amazon has turned over a record amount of customer data to the US government in the first-half of last year in response to demands by law enforcement.

The retail and cloud giant quietly posted its latest transparency report on Dec. 29 without notice -- as it has with previous reports -- detailing the latest figures for the first six months of 2017.

The report revealed 1,936 different requests between January and June 2017, a rise from the previous bi-annual report.

The company received:

1,618 subpoenas, of which the company fully complied with 42 percent;
229 search warrants, of which the company fully complied with 44 percent;
89 other court orders, of which the company fully complied with 52 percent.
It's not clear why there was a spike in requests during the half-year period. An Amazon spokesperson declined to comment.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It's simple, doing business with Amazon; just consider it a 4th intelligence arm of the US government, in its "disclosures" to them, ,and that should govern your buying habits and decisions in using them.

Of A Type Developed By Liars

I have now received confirmation from a well placed FCO source that Porton Down scientists are not able to identify the nerve gas as being of Russian manufacture, and have been resentful of the pressure being placed on them to do so. Porton Down would only sign up to the formulation “of a type developed by Russia” after a rather difficult meeting where this was agreed as a compromise formulation. The Russians were allegedly researching, in the “Novichok” programme a generation of nerve agents which could be produced from commercially available precursors such as insecticides and fertilisers. This substance is a “novichok” in that sense. It is of that type. Just as I am typing on a laptop of a type developed by the United States, though this one was made in China.

Deep state propaganda: U.S. accuses Russia for cyber attacks on American energy infrastructure

In what appears to be deep state-sponsored propaganda, the U.S. has accused the Russians of cyber attacking U.S. power grid and energy infrastructure.

Mar 16 09:50


While they always stopped short of official allegations in the past, US officials have, since 2016, repeatedly insinuated that Russia had been trying to hack the US electrical grid. Thursday say the Trump Administration directly making those allegations for the first time.

This new report appears to be timed to come out with new US sanctions against Russia, which cited “malicious cyberattacks” as one of their justifications. The allegations, however, stem from accusations which have been out since the Obama Administration-era, and have long since been discredited.

The report itself is largely just a whitepaper on how hacking in general works, with scant mention of what Russia is even alleged to have done. The report dates the incidents to “since 2016,” however, and the description clearly mirrors the much vaunted Burlington Electric hack in Vermont in 2016.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would politely suggest that the Trump administration has "jumped the proverbial shark" with this accusation, which absolutely cannot be proven.

IF this was a trial balloon to get the American public to buy in to an actual shooting war with Russia, it was way too weighted down with the lead of illogic and massive inconsistencies to succeeed.

That the Administration would actually think the American people would buy in to this, is more than a little terrifying.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), a longtime outspoken defender of consumer rights and critic of Wall Street banks, condemned Wells Fargo on Thursday for giving its CEO a 35 percent pay raise following several scandals at the bank, and slammed executive Tim Sloan when he criticized her remarks.

Warren tweeted her outrage after regulatory documents revealed Sloan's 2017 pay rose significantly from the previous year, even as Wells Fargo was facing rebuke after its employees opened millions of fraudulent accounts in customers' names. The bank has been forced to pay nearly $200 million in fines due to its actions.

The bank was also sanctioned this week by regulators over another scandal in which it signed up and charged customers for auto insurance that they didn't need or request. Wells Fargo will have to give refunds to about 570,000 consumers.

In January, Sloan admitted that the bank was unsure whether it was operating without continued widespread fraudulence by its employees.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I suppose Warren must be congratulated for her magnificent grasp of the obvious; but what is she actually doing in Congress to make actions by financial institutions like Wells Fargo stop?!?

Were I a current customer of Wells Fargo, after all these scandals, I would make sure to close my account, taking my money elsewhere, and be very politely vocal about why this was happening.

But Sloan behaved as all the one percenters nearly always behave; creating illegal schemes to scam money out of customers, and getting pretty much away with it with impunity.

He knows that having most likely "greased the wheels" of both parties to lay off him and his practices, by way of significant, overt and covert donations, he had purchased immunity for any crimes which he may have committed, or upon which he had personally signed off.

Slovak Prime Minister Robert Rico resigned Thursday after widespread outrage in reaction to the murder of a journalist who reported on potential links between organized crime and government officials.

“Today I have offered my resignation to the president of the republic,” Fico told reporters. “If the president accepts it, I am ready to resign tomorrow.”

The journalist, 27-year-old Jan Kuciak, and his fiancée, Martina Kušnírová, were found shot to death in Kuciak’s apartment on February 26.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

For Rico to resign so abruptly, rather than cling on to power, may hint that he already knew of massive improprieties in the Slovakian government, and wanted to distance himself from it; but I have to reserve judgement here until all the facts are truly known.

MSM, Brookings Reveals Plan To "Bleed" Syria In Absence Of Defeat On The Battlefield

By Brandon Turbeville

A recent opinion piece written by Tim Lister for CNN entitled “Assad May Win Syria’s War, But He Will Preside Over A Broken Country,” has unintentionally revealed part of the plan for Syria maintained by the United States, Israel, GCC, and NATO. In lieu of the complete destruction of the Syrian government, the “coalition” of invaders seems to be focusing on their Plan B goal of “federalization” and fracturing of Syria using Kurds, Islamic terrorists, and other religious/ethnic groups to create a collection of religious/ethno states incapable of resisting the will of world powers and one very specific regional power...

Plastic: WHO launches health review

The World Health Organization is to launch a review into the potential risks of plastic in drinking water.

It will assess the latest research into the spread and impact of so-called microplastics - particles that are small enough to be ingested.

It comes after journalism organisation Orb Media found plastic particles in many major brands of bottled water.

There is no evidence that microplastics can undermine human health but the WHO wants to assess the state of knowledge.

Plastic particles found in bottled water
Bruce Gordon, coordinator of the WHO’s global work on water and sanitation, told BBC News that the key question was whether a lifetime of eating or drinking particles of plastic could have an effect.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The human body is not engineered to handle the ingestion of plastic in any way, shape, or form.

And IF the processors of these brands of these very expensive brands of drinking water water knew about the reality that microplastics were in it, the corporate CEOS of these companies should be doing hard time in in jail; that SHOULD solve the problem.

You Won’t Believe Who In The Deep State Leaked The Russia Dossier To CNN

Last January, CNN revealed the existence of the fake news Russia dossier.

They didn’t publish it, the publication was laundered through Buzzfeed, and once its existence became public, the rumor of collusion – despite no evidence – began to swirl.

But who leaked it to CNN?

Now there is an answer.

Firstly, Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee are set to release a report with several key findings.

Chief among them is that there is no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.

But sources familiar with the report and the investigation told investigative journalist Sara Carter that James Clapper – Obama’s former Director of National Intelligence – was the individual who leaked the dossier’s existence to CNN.

New Orleans Cancels Secret Pre-Crime Police Program After Media Exposure

By Nicholas West

I’m happy to report some good news coming out of New Orleans thanks to the excellent investigative reporting of Ali Winston with The Verge.

As I reported two weeks ago, Winston helped to uncover a secret predictive policing program that had been ongoing for 6 years by the New Orleans PD in cooperation with CIA-connected Palantir Technologies. The program had been designed to operate behind the cover of a philanthropic partnership orchestrated by political operative James Carville so as to avoid having to disclose the details to citizens and even to their elected representatives in the city council. Now it appears that the intrepid reporting of Ali Winston has led to the abrupt cancelling of the program just a short time after the initial article was published...

Are 'Novichok' Poisons Real? - May's Claims Fall Apart

The British government claims that 'Novichok' poisons, developed 30 years ago in the Soviet Union, affected a British double agent. But such substances may not exist at all. The British government further says that the Russian government is responsible for the incident and has announced penalties against the country.

A comparable incidents happened in 2001 in the United States. Envelopes with Anthrax spores were sent to various politicians. Some people died. The White House told the FBI to blame al-Qaeda but the Anthrax turned out to be from a U.S. chemical-biological weapon laboratory. The case is still unsolved.
