Pompeo, Netanyahu ‘two mobsters’ plotting Palestine’s eradication: Analyst

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s visit to Israel to discuss the Zionist regime’s planned annexation of the West Bank region with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is like the gathering of two “mobsters” plotting to eradicate Palestinians from their indigenous homeland, says an American political analyst.

Rodney Martin, a former congressional staffer based in Arizona, made the comment during a phone interview with Press TV on Monday, while commenting on an announcement by the US State Department that Pompeo will visit the occupied territories on Wednesday to discuss “regional security issues” linked to “Iran’s malign influence” as well as the Israeli annexation of much of the West Bank.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unfortunately the guy is entirely correct in his assessment here.

Palestinians have, for far too long, been "saddled" with leadership which would neither lead, or work to achieve some kind of status for Palestinians, other than being "the others" in Israeli-occupied Palestinian land, enriching themselves in the process.

A number of years ago I posted that if Palestinian leadership continued arguing among themselves, if there was ever a Post-Balfour Declaration of an actual state of Palestine, it wouldn't be even the size of Lichtenstein; now even that possibility has been completely destroyed, and the US "blessing' for this annexation is not helpful in any way.

And could someone please explain to me precisely how this "malign Iranian influence" could possibly hurt Israel's security, in any way, shape, or form?!? Israel is a nuclear armed nation, with one of the most impressive military and weaponry capabilities in the world, for heaven's sake!!

Iran is not a threat here; in fact, many Iranian Jews living there do not want to "make aliyah" to Israel, because they are perfectly content to be where they are. Celebrating Sabbath With Iran's Jewish Minority

The only "threat" here, is economic, and definitely not existential, between Israel and Iran. Netanyahu could, should he feel like it, create a peace and trade treaty with the government in Tehran, and come home to a hero's welcome, but that won't happen until pigs fly; unfortunately, the Israeli government loves to create an atmosphere of fear among their citizens, belligerently reminding them in no uncertain terms, that there are always things to be feared from their Muslim neighbors, particularly the Iranians.

Israel's grudge with Iran has to do with it having not only survived the 1979 revolution, but actually thriving economically, in spite of US-engendered sanctions.

Martin Armstrong Explains Why No Democrat Will Admit The Truth About COVID-19

Authored by Martin Armstrong via ArmstrongEconomics.com,

QUESTION:

Why are the democrats refusing to address the recent information which confirms that COVID-19 has a death rates of less than 1%? Why do they continue to try to scare people and pass acts to invade our privacy?

REPLY:

They have no incentive to tell the truth. There were people who sold everything long before the World Health Organization declared anything about this virus.

This has been an intended coup and that is really the bottom line. It was a Democrat who from Illinois, the basket-case of the United States, Bob Rush, who wants to effectively force people to be tested and to assist them in being imprisoned in their homes (see HR 6666).

They will NOT let this go because in September when the next flu season begins, the Democrats will be running headlines that people are dying because Trump opened the economy. This is all they have to try to overthrow him.

"OBAMAGATE!" Trump Tweets Tucker Carlson's Crushing Breakdown Why The Former President Should Be Panicking

Why is former President Obama calling forth all his defensive resources now? Why did former national security advisor Susan Rice write her CYA letter? Why have republicans in congress not been willing to investigate the true origins of political surveillance? What is the reason for so much anger, desperation and opposition from a variety of interests?

In a single word in a single tweet tonight, President Trump explained it perfectly - with help from Fox News' Tucker Carlson's detailed breakdown" "OBAMAGATE!"...

As around 2:15 in the clip above, Carlson explains that then president of the United States Barack Obama turned to the head of the FBI - the most powerful law enforcement official in America, and said "Continue to secretly investigate my chief political rival so I can act against him."

Comey's response? "Yes, sir."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There you have it, folks; the reality of President Obama's Machiavellian proclivities are about to crash right into the open, to the shock (and for some, amusement) of American onlookers.

You have to admit, he absolutely DID have "the cool factor" down brilliantly, and was terrifically well-spoken; but beneath that facade was the mind of a man hell-bent on destroying all he saw as his "political enemies", no matter the cost to the American Constitution and systems of government, very much as did his predecessor, President Nixon.

President Nixon's hubris, ultimately destroyed his career as President of the United States; in light of the fact that President Obama is now out of office, the only thing this information can do, is taint his legacy with such a foul cloud of toxicity, that any good he actually did for the American people, will be nullified by any future reading of his time in office, and what he asked of his minions still in government, upon leaving it.

And we have the following headline, also from zerohedge.com, reading as follows: Grenell Gives DOJ List Of Obama Officials Involved In Flynn Unmasking Scandal; Waiting On Barr To Release

Democrats move to consider virtual options for summer convention

Democrats are now acknowledging that the coronavirus may make it impossible to conduct the in-person convention in August that they'd envisioned, and they're taking steps to allow virtual or socially distanced elements.

Driving the news: The Democratic National Committee's Rules and Bylaws Committee meets Tuesday to consider a resolution giving the convention team "maximum flexibility to plan a safe event that guarantees every delegate can accomplish their official business without putting their own health at risk," per a DNC memo.

The resolution says the convention team "has the authority to make the necessary changes to the format, size, date or other aspects in order to conduct a safe convention."
Convention delegates will be allowed to participate either "in person or by means that allow for appropriate social distancing."
If the committee approves the resolution, it will then be voted on by all DNC members.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The candidate this move by the DNC will assist..... will most probably not be Joe Biden; I would nearly want to bet, that it would be Hillary Clinton, whose lust for another chance at "grabbing the brass ring" of the Democratic nomination for President, will be just too intense for her to ignore.

Also, many governors are giving their citizens the opportunity to vote by mail; this is another interesting avenue in the direction of potential vote fraud.

Trump Regime Blocks UN Security Council Resolution for “Global Ceasefire” During COVID-19 Epidemic

Run by warlord members from both right wings of the one-party state, the US geopolitical agenda prioritizes permanent wars against invented enemies to enforce their will on humanity by brute force and other hostile actions.

At a time when containing COVID-19 outbreaks and combatting the severest economic collapse in modern memory matter most, the Trump regime blocked a proposed global ceasefire Security Council resolution to assure no interference in its imperial wars on humanity.

Russia strongly supports what Trump regime hardliners oppose, Kremlin UN envoy Vassily Nebenzia saying the following:

“In view of the worldwide spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus epidemic, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation is urging all parties to regional armed conflicts to immediately stop hostilities, secure a ceasefire, and introduce a humanitarian pause,” adding:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder, in the face of all these US-generated wars, and a national debt big enough to choke a horse, if the US will balkanize, and bits and pieces go their own way peacefully.

Everything has a life cycle, even governmental systems; ours has become broken; corrupt; highly immoral; and doesn't really give a damn what its citizens think about its actions.

The word that comes to mind is "accountability"; at this point in its devolution, the only "accountability" this government has is to the thoroughly monied, and the war machine which supports it.

At 71, I am very tired of being a citizen of a country which finds it pathologically incapable of not creating war crimes in those areas of the world it has "neutralized", in order to extract the wealth from those areas, and have that wealth sold only for US dollars.

The cycle is painfully clear to see, for anyone with even half a brain; but what is also clear to me is that the empire of the Unhinged, Surveilled State of Amerika, is coming to a screeching halt in the not too terribly distant future.

The big question is, how will it unravel?!? And that... is where US citizens, particularly the "adults in the room" need to sit up, and take notice. How are you going to work, take care of your kids, and give them the future you want to see them be able to achieve and accomplish, when everything breaks down?!?

I would politely suggest that the time to consider these issues, and the coming crisis regarding American identity... is now.

Holy Land: Heads of Churches Voice Concern About Israel’s Planned Annexation of West Bank Land

As a result of the stagnation of the Peace Process in the Middle East between the Israelis and Palestinians, an array of plans for Israel to unilaterally annex West Bank land, backed mainly by right-wing factions, raises serious and catastrophic questions about the feasibility of any peaceful agreement to end the decades’ long conflict, one that continues to cost many innocent lives as part of a vicious cycle of human tragedy and injustice.

The Council of Patriarchs and Heads of the Holy Land Churches views such unilateral annexation plans with the utmost concern and calls upon the State of Israel to refrain from such unilateral moves, which would bring about the loss of any remaining hope for the success of the peace process.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I think it was very brave, indeed, for these men to sign their names to this document; both brave, and extraordinarily naive.

And I say this because, throughout its history, Israel has shown no genuine appetite for peace, whatsoever, but only for territory, and by any means necessary.

When this annexation happens, look for massive Palestinian deaths and maimings at the hands of Israel's IDF; their sharpshooters are among some of the best in the world at blowing up childrens' limbs, killing them outright, or maiming them in such a way that they will never fully recover, no matter whether or not they were innocent of any alleged "crime".‘I remember the knee in the crosshairs, bursting open’ – Israeli snipers boast of shooting ‘ducks’ in Gaza

To the Palestinians whose lands are being annexed, you must begin to (peacefully) demand the right to vote in Israel; because without the vote, in these new areas of Israel, you will have zero say in the decisions which will affect your daily lives, and those of your kids.

Video: Here’s Why Bill Gates Wants Indemnity for Vaccines – Are You Willing to Take the Risk?

Why are the world’s top vaccine promoters, like Paul Offit and Peter Hotez, frantically warning us about the unique and frightening dangers inherent in developing a coronavirus vaccine?

Scientists first attempted to develop coronavirus vaccines after China’s 2002 SARS-CoV outbreak. Teams of US & foreign scientists vaccinated animals with the four most promising vaccines.

At first, the experiment seemed successful as all the animals developed a robust antibody response to coronavirus. However, when the scientists exposed the vaccinated animals to the wild virus, the results were horrifying.

Vaccinated animals suffered hyper-immune responses including inflammation throughout their bodies terminating with fatal lung infections. Researchers had seen this same “enhanced immune response” during human testing of the failed RSV vaccine tests in the 1960s. Two children died.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The short answer to that last question?!? HELL, NO!!

Report: Child soldiers deployed to Libya by Turkish-backed Syrian National Army

Factions of the Turkish-backed opposition Syrian National Army are recruiting minors to fight in Libya, according to a report laying out in exhaustive detail Turkey’s use of Syrian rebels to prop up Libya’s Government of National Accord.

The 40-page document, prepared by Syrians for Truth and Justice and shared exclusively with Al-Monitor, cites sources on the ground in Syria and in Libya who say Syrian teenagers have been recruited and are part of their units in the battlefield. The report will be published Monday by the nonpartisan not-for-profit organization, which documents human rights abuses in Syria.

The children are among well over 2,000 Syrian rebels believed to have been deployed over the past year via Turkey in support of the Government of National Accord against the eastern warlord Khalifa Hifter, who is backed by Egypt and the United Arab Emirates.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The recruiting of child soldiers is another very sick practice, which should also be banned internationally.

Teenagers should be getting an education; not carrying rifles with which to defend empires, period, end of discussion!!

As coronavirus spreads in Egypt, Sissi sees opportunity to tighten his grip

CAIRO - Egypt's military-backed government is using the coronavirus pandemic to tighten its grip on the country, human rights activists say.

In recent weeks, authorities have ordered up punishments, including prison terms, for anyone they accuse of contradicting official accounts about the pandemic. Political opponents have been linked to the virus and targeted. And under coronavirus-related restrictions, political prisoners are more isolated than ever from the world as the virus threatens them.

On Friday, President Abdel Fatah al-Sissi approved amendments to the nation's emergency law, giving himself and security agencies additional powers. The stricter measures, the government claims, are needed to address a legal "vacuum" and prevent the spread of covid-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus.

But activists say some of the measures open the door to more abuses of rights and freedoms.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It appears that Sissi has turned "gangster" as President, and now considers himself a dictator, running Egypt as his own personal fiefdom for himself and his cronies; this does not augur well for peace, either inside the country, or in the entire region.

War in Yemen forces more girls into child marriage

An extraordinary case of child marriage in Yemen has highlighted the rising number of forced, underage weddings. In rare instances, women have managed to fight back, reports Safia Mahdi from Sana'a.

When 12-year-old Hind visited her father in jail a few months ago, he told her she was to marry a fellow inmate. Her groom, 30, had been sentenced to death for drug smuggling and possession, but they would get married anyway, she was told.

When Hind's mother managed to get a court order cancelling the marriage contract, her story became one of the rare cases of reprieve in Yemen, where the rate of child marriage is rising rapidly.

There is still no clear law regulating the minimum age for marriage in Yemen and many girls are forced to marry at ages considered too young to allow for their consent.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Child marriage is one of the worst forms of child abuse inflicted on young girls, and should be universally banned.

Israel government swearing-in delayed a day by Pompeo visit: officials

The swearing-in of Israel's new unity government has been postponed by one day to Thursday due to the upcoming visit of US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, officials said.
A parliament spokesman said the joint administration of incumbent premier Benjamin Netanyahu and his former rival Benny Gantz would be inaugurated on Thursday instead of Wednesday.

A spokesman for Netanyahu's right-wing Likud party told AFP the delay was "because of the visit" of the US top diplomat on Wednesday.

Pompeo's trip comes as US President Donald Trump's administration gives its blessing to Netanyahu's plans to annex much of the occupied West Bank, despite warnings from the Palestinians that the move will kill the prospects of a long-term peace agreement.

Israel's new government is the result of a deal allowing Netanyahu to continue on as prime minister for another 18 months, before the former military chief Gantz takes over the post for the same period.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

To the Palestinians whose lands are being annexed in this move, please remember what the most important thing your (alleged) leadership can do right now; peacefully negotiate for the right to vote in Israeli elections, when this land becomes Israel's by decree in July.

Otherwise, this annexation will, most assuredly, produce for you a series of Israeli "Bantustans" like those of the old apartheid government of South Africa, where Africans who were not of European descent, were unable to vote, or have any meaningful participation in decisions affecting their lives whatsoever.

New investigation reveals shocking extent of torture in Saudi women's prisons

A documentary by Al Jazeera revealed shocking testimonies from female former detainees about the extent of torture and sexual harassment in Jeddah's Dhahban Central Prison.Tags:Dhahban, torture, women's rights, prison.
A new documentary broadcast on Al Jazeera's Arabic channel has uncovered terrifying details about the torture of female prisoners in Saudi Arabia.

The film presents a selection of testimonies from former detainees of Jeddah's Dhahban Central Prison, revealing rampant physical and psychological torture as well as sexual harassment during interrogation sessions.

Dhahban Prison is where a number of prominent Saudi women's rights activists have been arbitrarily detained since a sweeping campaign of arrests in May 2018.

The activists have previously complained about sexual harassment, torture and other forms of mistreatment during interrogation, however, the documentary is the first of its kind in airing direct testimonies.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would strongly and politely suggest to President Trump, that he may well want to pick his international "friends" just a little more carefully than he has with Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman.

This torture of women is apparently what the guy has signed off upon, and if it has happened under MBS's watch, he must have approved it, and continues to approve it.

This is one of the myriad of reasons you would never get me, willingly, to go to Riyadh; being a Christian, and a woman, is enough to get one tortured and killed, under this barbaric regime's watch.

In fact, as noted in the following article last month, people in the international community are beginning to sit up and take notice. This article was published at justsecurity.org, last month: Ending Impunity: Now Is the Time for a UN Special Rapporteur on the Human Rights Situation in Saudi Arabia

The article goes on to state: "One cannot deny that Saudi Arabia’s human rights record, not stellar to begin with, has been worsening, especially after Mohammed bin Salman (MBS) was made Crown Prince in 2017. Since then, the regime has systematically silenced any dissent and has racked up a worrying toll of human rights violations, against both Saudi and foreign citizens. Saudi authorities act with total impunity with the international community looking on. This can no longer be tolerated, nor go unpunished: an essential first step is establishing a United Nations independent expert to monitor the human rights situation in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA), in the form of a special rapporteur.

Saudi policy continues to incorporate torture, murder, and restrictions on fundamental rights and freedoms, including the right to life, freedom of expression and opinion, freedom of assembly and association, freedom of belief and movement, women’s rights, minority rights, and migrant workers’ rights, coupled with alleged war crimes in Yemen. Saudi authorities persistently persecute peaceful activists by labelling them as terrorists or agitators and using anti-terror and security laws against them, following a pattern of rife violations. Suspects are often beaten to extract confessions; they are denied access to legal support and family visits; they are exposed to corporal punishment; and remain in excessively protracted pre-trial detention, with any pleas for fair investigation of these violations falling on the deaf ears of judicial authorities."

BENJAMIN NETANYAHU SUGGESTS MICROCHIPPING KIDS, SLAMMED BY EXPERTS

SOURCE: JPOST
Cyber experts slammed Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for his proposal to "microchip" children who return to schools and kindergartens as the coronavirus lockdown is lifted, Ynet reported on Friday.

While speaking at a press conference on Monday, Netanyahu suggested the Health Ministry use new technology to help Israel adjust to its new routine as the state is lifting the coronavirus lockdown. "That is, technology that has not been used before and is allowed under the legislation we shall enact," he clarified.

"I spoke with our heads of technology in order to find measures Israel is good at, such as sensors. For instance, every person, every kid – I want it on kids first – would have a sensor that would sound an alarm when you get too close, like the ones on cars," the prime minister said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The microchipping.... of Israeli children?!?

How much more dystopian can you get?!?

THE BOTCHED INFILTRATION OF VENEZUELA LEAVES GUAIDÓ TAINTED BEYOND REPAIR

SOURCE: MINT PRESS
The latest chapter in the ongoing effort to overthrow the Venezuelan government reads like a bad spy thriller: a group of mercenaries piloted speedboats from Colombia to Venezuela; half of them were killed or captured by Venezuelan security forces immediately upon landing, while the other half – apparently delayed by mechanical issues with their boat – surrendered to local police and militia the next day. Thirty-nine attackers have been captured so far, including two Americans, both former special forces soldiers. Their plan was to capture or kill high-value targets, including Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro. Instead, it failed miserably and raised more concerns about the leadership of opposition figure Juan Guaidó.

Guaidó’s Insidious Contract

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As Ron White was fond of saying in his stand-up routine, "You can't fix stupid"; and anyone with more than 2 brain cells circulating in their heads within spitting distance of whoever in this administration signed off on this insanity, HAD to understand that Maduro's security has become increasingly sophisticated in their understanding of how these efforts are supposed to work.

"Plausible deniability"?!? In two short words, HELL, NO!!!!!

And here are a couple of companion pieces, from antiwar.com:

Venezuelan TV Exposed Failed Incursion OVER A MONTH before it happened.

US government wants release of two Special Forces Veterans who lead failed Coup/Invasion of Venezuela And THAT, my friends, will be the moment when pigs discover they are aerodynamic!!

One last statement, coming from globalresearch.ca from China:

China Will Not Accept Any US Invasion in Venezuela: Spokeswoman Hua Chunying The article goes on to state: "China repudiates the United States’ attempt of a naval invasion of Venezuela and all interventionist maneuvers against the sovereignty of any country.

Through a statement, the Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman, Hua Chunying, stressed again this Wednesday her rejection of the United States’ aggression against Venezuela and has emphasized that Beijing will not accept any US invasion plan in the South American country.

“We reject the violation of the sovereignty of Venezuela by any means or excuse, in addition, we call to prioritize the welfare of the people, work together to safeguard national stability and promote the peaceful resolution of the situation in the Caribbean country,” stressed the spokeswoman of the Chinese Foreign Ministry.

China, reads the note, has always been in favor of respecting the Charter of the United Nations (UN) and the basic rules that govern international relations against the policies of hostility of the United States towards the Maduro government." No gray area here, President Trump; so what are you going to do to Venezuela now?!?

She helped Dr Russetti isolate the HIV virus and link it to #AIDS in 1983. Her NIH boss Anthony Fauci delayed publication of that critical paper for 6 months to let his protégé Robert Gallo replicate, publish and claim credit.

US sets up new military base in Syria’s oil-rich Dayr al-Zawr: Report

The United States has reportedly established a new military base in Syria’s oil-rich eastern province of Dayr al-Zawr after bringing in reinforcements to the war-torn Arab country.

The so-called Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) quoted reliable sources as saying on Friday that the new US base is located in Day al-Zawr’s al-Jazrat area.

The US-based monitoring group reported that more than 300 trucks, carrying ammunition, weapons, military and logistical supplies, had entered Syria over the past few days and that most of those trucks headed to al-Jazrat.

It further said the US forces are expanding their base in the al-Omar oil field in the eastern countryside of Dayr Al -Zawr.

Recently, it added, American soldiers and other US-led coalition troops had arrived at the base.

Washington runs several military bases in Syria, mainly in northern and eastern regions where the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) are operating.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF in fact these reports are true, one has to wonder just how long Russia's Putin will allow this nonsense to continue before something dramatic happens here, and US troops are "cheek to jowl" with Russian troops on the ground in Syria.

And please remember; Russia has weapons and munitions which actually do work as advertised.

Saudi Arabia Running Out Of Money: Riyadh To Slash Spending By $27 Billion, Suspend Cost Of Living Allowance

Last weekend we quoted Finance Minister Mohammed Al-Jadaan, who warned that the world's biggest oil exporter hasn’t witnessed "a crisis of this severity" in decades, adding that government spending will have to be cut "very deeply", something we touched on previously.

We didn't have long to wait, because early on Monday, the Saudi government - which appears to be running out of money fast - ordered government spending cuts including suspending the cost of living allowance amid broad austerity measures for about $26.6 billion and a tripling of the value-added tax as part of measures aimed to shore up state finances, which have been battered by low oil prices and the coronavirus.

"Cost of living allowance will be suspended as of June first, and the value added tax will be increased to 15% from 5% as of July first," said the Saudi finance minister according to the state news agency, suggesting Saudi Arabia is on the verge of a full-blown fiscal crisis.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder: will this financial crisis ultimately be enough to topple the House of Saud as the country's leadership, and replace it with a somewhat democratic regime?!?

"We Sent Them Samples Of A Goat, A Papaya & A Pheasant": Tanzanian President Catches WHO In Epic Lie

As the number of confirmed coronavirus cases explodes across Africa, the creeping involvement of the WHO has made some leaders suspicious of the NGO. Tanzanian President John Magufuli was growing suspicious of the organization, so he reportedly decided to investigate whether the organization was as trustworthy and reliable as it claimed to be.

He played what the local press described as "a trick" on the organization: He sent the WHO samples of a goat, a papaya and a quail for testing.

All three samples reportedly tested positive. When the president heard the news, he reportedly confronted the WHO, then kicked the organization out of the country. Though, to be sure, the WHO has yet to comment on the situation.

The larger question is, how can any rational human being accept any numbers come up with by W.H.O. with a straight face anymore?!?

Google’s Monopoly on Speech

“Don’t be evil” was explicit to Google’s motto and code of conduct for some 15 years. In 2015, Google updated its motto to “Do the right thing.” Today, Google, which owns YouTube, seems to have altered its motto to “Be evil” or “Do the wrong thing”—including censoring free speech of doctors, scientists, professors, politicians and journalists whose ideas differ from those of Google executives.

“This is the next step in the evolution of the Internet,” former Google CEO Eric Schmidt lauded Google’s purchase of YouTube for $1.65 billion in 2006. We now know Schmidt’s definition of Internet “progress” ostensibly centers around inducing users to think like him—by using YouTube to push assenting views and censor differing perspectives under the guise of legality or neutrality.

1.4 MILLION PEOPLE TO DIE FROM UNTREATED TB DUE TO CORONAVIRUS LOCKDOWN

SOURCE: SUMMIT.NEWS
Around 1.4 million people are expected to die from untreated TB infections due to the coronavirus lockdown, according to research published by Imperial College London and Johns Hopkins University.
“Up to 6.3 million more people are predicted to develop TB between now and 2025 and 1.4 million more people are expected to die as cases go undiagnosed and untreated during lockdown,” reports the Guardian.

The figures are based on the premise of a 3 month lockdown and a 10-month period of restoring services after lockdown is lifted.

Lucica Ditiu, head of a global partnership to end tuberculosis, said she was “sickened” by the revelation and that the situation would set back global efforts to end TB by eight years.

Standard Pontius Pilate response. Of course, the US government and its private sector “partners” in the subversion business (in this case, Silvercorp USA) are behind this miniaturized Bay of Pigs operation.

The fall guy is Jordan Goudreau, “a former member of the US Army special forces” who has, according to the BBC, “been quick to claim an association” with the captured US mercenaries.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I wish that the government of the country of which I am a citizen could possibly, please, stop lying to its people and the world; of course, that has not been, nor is it likely in the future, that the Unhinged, Surveilled State of Amerika will do such a thing.

And folks, please remember; just because something would be the most ham-fistedly, pig-headedly stupid thing this government could possibly do, is utterly no guarantee that it will not do it; there is no real plausible deniability here, and the White House knows this, so they are desperately trying to change the subject.

NIGERIA: BILL GATES OFFERED HOUSE OF REPS $10M BRIBE FOR SPEEDY PASSAGE OF COMPULSORY VACCINE BILL – CUPP ALLEGES

The Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP), on Monday, alleged that it has intercepted a human intelligence report that the Nigeria House of Representatives leadership was poised to forcefully pass the compulsory vaccine bill without subjecting it to the traditions of legislative proceedings.

In a statement issued and signed by the spokesperson of the opposition political parties, Barrister Ikenga Imo Ugochinyere and sent to DAILY POST in Abuja on Monday, the body urged lawmakers in the lower chamber to rise against impunity.

The body in the statement alleged that a sum of $10 million was offered by the American Computer Czar, Bill Gates to influence the speedy passage of the bill without recourse to legislative public hearing, a development they averted as anachronistic, adding that the Speaker, Femi Gbajabiamila should be impeached if he forces the bill on members.

The statement read:

HEAVILY MILITARIZED SWAT RAIDS INNOCENT FAMILY FOR GROWING TOMATOES—TAXPAYERS HELD LIABLE

SOURCE: THE FREE THOUGHT PROJECT

Leawood, KS — Adlynn and Robert Harte and their two children had harmed no one and broken no laws when heavily armed militarized SWAT deputies with the Johnson County sheriff’s department stormed their home like it was an ISIS compound. The “hero” deputies were searching for evidence of marijuana production and use but they found none because the Harte’s don’t use or produce marijuana. They do grow vegetables, however, and they also drink tea.

The Hartes and their two children were held at gunpoint and nearly killed for purchasing supplies for their vegetable garden and drinking tea. After they were seen buying gardening supplies, cops rummaged through their trash and mistook tea leaves for weed, sparking ‘probable cause’ for the raid. Since the raid in 2012, the Harte family has been attempting to seek justice but to no avail. This month, however, they finally got a break.

Absoflippinglutely unbelievable, but perfectly predictable, given the horrible uptick in cases like this nationally.

UN RAPPORTEUR ON TORTURE ‘SCARED TO FIND OUT MORE ABOUT OUR DEMOCRACIES’ AFTER DELVING INTO ASSANGE CASE

SOURCE: RT
Discovering that the cruelty visited on Julian Assange by Western democracies had been premeditated has heightened the fear of learning more about how those democracies operate, the UN’s rapporteur on torture has admitted.
For years Nils Melzer has been researching on behalf of the UN just how vile and degrading the mistreatment of prisoners can become. But learning that states that are supposed to be champions of human rights can be as brutal as any other with people who cross them was quite a shock. The case that made Melzer reassess his beliefs is that of Julian Assange, who, he says, had signs of "prolonged psychological torture" while in the UK.

“First I was shocked that mature democracies could produce such an accident. Then I found out it was no accident. Now, I am scared to find out about our democracies…” the UN official tweeted on Sunday, marking a year since his visit to check on Assange at the UK’s Belmarsh top security prison.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The reason why Assange is still in prison, and subjected to psychological torture, is that he embarrassed the US government; nothing more, nothing less.

And remember; nothing Wikileaks has ever published, has ever been successfully and logically refuted.

Russian "Interference" Bugaboo is at Play Again as US Election Day Nears – Analysts

?yber experts from the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and FBI have warned about the possibility of Russia's interference in the 2020 presidential elections, according to a 3 February memo obtained by The Associated Press. International observers have explained what is behind the resurfaced "Russia at it again" claims.

The document titled "Possible Russian Tactics Ahead of 2020 US Election" outlines eight tactics Moscow could supposedly pick to influence the outcome of the November vote.

Censors crack down on ‘Plandemic’ conspiracy documentary. What’s so dangerous about it?

Pulled from YouTube, censored in internet searches, and denounced by every single mainstream media outlet, what kind of information could make everyone so mad about ‘Plandemic’? We watched it to find out.

A 23-minute teaser clip of the documentary went viral on Wednesday evening, notching up tens of millions of views across multiple platforms. However, a media outcry soon followed, with mainstream media outlets deploying their ‘fact-checkers’ to debunk its claims, and Facebook and YouTube removing the video, citing their new rules on Covid-19 “misinformation.”

Yet censorship is also a sure-fire way to generate interest in the very thing you’re trying to censor – and multiple copies and versions of ‘Plandemic’ began to appear like mushrooms. So who’s behind it and what’s in there?

China, Iran Are On The March

There is so much focus on the COVID-19 pandemic right now that Americans can’t be blamed if they’re not spending much time studying other developments.

That’s understandable, but inattention may be as dangerous as the virus itself. That’s because America’s adversaries are taking advantage of the situation by challenging U.S. interests in a set of geopolitical hot spots.

They believe we’re too distracted by the virus containment effort to mount a firm response.

Winning time NOW if ‘We the People’ finish strong! Patriots: bring the deceived gently into the Light

The American public has endured ongoing illegal rogue state empire for nearly 200 years. American Revolution 2.0 is exposing Deep State actors who knowingly lied to smear Trump as a “Russian asset” both as a candidate, then as President to “justify” impeachment.

This is now exposed lies for illegal overthrow of the American President, and transfer of power to the Deep State criminal liars.

The New York Post reports all 53 House Committee on Intelligence interview transcripts show no person at any time ever had any evidence of Trump campaign involvement with Russia in any way. The article also implicates corporate media for amplifying “Russia, Russia, Russia,” with zero evidence to substantiate the accusation.

"Your Every Move Will Be Watched": Post-COVID Offices To Resemble China's Social Credit System

We recently detailed how when America's white collar work force returns to their offices, business complexes, and sky scrapers, their experience in the post-COVID 'reopened' work space is likely to resemble something more like an airport security check zone, complete with invasive protocols like frequent temperature checks and 'social distancing' and health surveillance, as well as Plexiglass enclosed cubicles and HR-style enforcement monitors.

If all that sounds like a hassle, the WSJ has since taken up the question of America's near-future office spaces, and the end result looks to be worse than expected. "Your every move will be watched," the report emphasizes:

In Midtown Manhattan, thermal cameras will measure body temperatures as employees file into a 32-story office tower at Rockefeller Center. The building’s owner, RXR Realty, said it is also developing a mobile app for tenants to monitor — and score — how closely their workers are complying with social distancing.

Project Day Lily is based on the events surrounding "Gulf War Syndrome" suffered by over 200,000 veterans (and tens of thousands dead) and their family members without proper acknowledgment or treatment to keep secret the origin of their illnesses. This is the true story of the discovery of a biological agent in veterans' blood by two American scientists as part of a massive testing program in the military and prisons and how various academic and government employees did everything in their power to keep this information secret, including murder.

US B-1B Bombers Again Fly Near Chinese Airspace Amid 'New Cold War' Threat

It goes without saying that US-China relations have reached their lowest point in decades, with a former Trump administration trade official warning the spike in tensions brought on by the corona crisis on the heels of the trade war has marked "the start of a new Cold War".

Former top White House trade negotiator Clete Willems told CNBC's Squawk Box Asia on Tuesday: “The reality is that tensions between the United States and China are rising considerably at the moment.”

“I know people get uncomfortable with the terminology, but I do think we have to be honest and call this what it is and this is the start of a new Cold War and if we’re not careful, things could get much, much worse,” Willems added.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is stupidly childish, on the part of the US government and the Trump Administration; we don't have the weaponry or troop strength to prevail in an all-out military confrontation with China, which most likely, Russia will join on China's side.

It appears that the current administration, rather than really taking an intelligent look at the existing problems in government and trade, and trying to fix them, has decided to "blame everything on China", including its underwhelming, and thoroughly misaligned, response to the Covid 19 crisis.

Right now, the most terrifying words any American could hear in their worst nightmares, are "We're from the Federal Government, and we are here to help you!!."

The current administration had no plan, other than lockdown, which assisted in the utter destruction of an already fragile economy, and a race for a cure, no matter how rife such a cure might be with horrific side-effects, which will soon be "mandated" for all Americans, if one wants to work, go to school, or have your kids attend school.

The Yad Vashem Claims These Jews Were Murdered By the Nazis. They're Actually Alive and Giving "Holocaust" Lectures

After a small and randomized study of the Yad Vashem archives, National Justice can report that after a search of approximately 15 famous Holocaust survivors, five are listed as having been explicitly murdered, in some cases multiple times.

This is only the tip of the iceberg. Many Holocaust survivors go by names like Joe, Fred, and Henry — not likely to be what they were assigned at birth. Many female ones have changed their names through marriage. Others have changed their names, especially those who moved to Israel or America after the war.

Yet, even with all of this in mind, the results are shocking.

Computer Model That Locked Down The World Turns Out To Be Sh*tcode

Submitted by Mark E. Jeftovic, of Axis of Easy

It was an Imperial College computer model that forecasted 500K deaths in the UK (and 2.5 million in the US) should policymakers pursue a “herd immunity” approach (a la Sweden), that influenced them to reverse course and go full lockdown instead. The model was produced by a team headed by Neil Ferguson, (who recently resigned his post advising the UK government when it surfaced that he was himself violating lockdown directives by breaking self-isolation for dalliances with a married woman).

The source code behind the model was to be made available to the public, and after numerous delays and excuses in doing so, has finally been posted to GitHub

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That the world wound up in lockdown mode, courtesy of buggy code, should be something which causes intelligent national leadership to think twice; of course, "intelligent national leadership" is a completely oxymoronic concept in a number of countries, including my own.

"Moral Vacuum" Exposed - European Leaders Cower In The Face Of China

Authored by Soeren Kern via The Gatestone Institute

Australia and the United States are leading a campaign for an independent inquiry into the origins of the coronavirus pandemic. Senior officials in both countries are seeking to determine if the virus originated in nature or in a Chinese laboratory. They are also calling on the Chinese government to account for its handling of the initial outbreak in the city of Wuhan.

While Europeans cower in the face of Communist China, they have found time to issue threats against the only democracy in the Middle East. On April 30, eleven European ambassadors to Israel warned Jerusalem of "severe consequences" if it goes ahead with plans to annex parts of the West Bank.

In a lengthy essay published by Die Welt, Mathias Döpfner, CEO of Axel Springer, Europe's largest publishing company, argued that the time has come for Europe to choose between the United States and China:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I find this article very interesting, in both its characterisation of China, and of Israel.

Warfare, in this part of the 21st century, can be very much achieved without a single bomb being dropped, and that has to do with hitting an economy hard, with sanctions, and pressure on other countries to avoid buying anything from the targeted country; we are seeing that now from the standpoint of the US governmental pressure on China to admit, whether or not it truly happened, that it was the origin of Covid 19, and it was not forthcoming with enough information to "save" Americans who have either been sickened by, or died from, this virus.

For the authors of this article not to understand that such a Chinese "surveillance/social credit" system is being actively pursued by the US government and beyond, and will be employed just as quickly as the US Deep State believes it can "softly" install it, is amazingly naive.

And as to Israel being "the only democracy in the Middle East"?!?

Please,folks, give me a break here!!!

How can one talk of a democracy, when one group of people consistently has its civil rights violated 24/7, gets shot at, has the limbs blown off their kids and generally assassinated for no bloody reason whatsoever, other than this group being "the other"?!?

How can you talk of a "democracy" with a government enmeshed in such a depth and history of corruption and paranoia which, if reasonably documented, would fill computer disks from here to eternity, for a country which is only 72 years old?!?

Because unless and until Palestinians have full voting rights in the "Eretz Israel" which is being created, through this brisk annexation coming about in the West Bank in July of this year, there is no justice, and no democracy in the State of Israel, period, end of discussion.

And Palestinian "leadership" (or what passes for it) needs to get its collective act together, to advocate, immediately, for this to become the case, when this annexation becomes a fait accompli.

"Justice For All" - General Flynn Celebrates After DoJ Drops Charges, Pelosi Slams Barr's "Cover Up"

Update (2100ET): It didn't take long for the politics to take over.

First, as The Hill reports, Attorney General William Barr defended the Department of Justice’s (DOJ) decision Thursday to move to drop the case against former national security adviser Michael Flynn for charges of lying to the FBI about his contacts with Russia in 2017. Barr dismissed accusations that he’s doing the “president’s bidding” in moving to drop the case.

“I'm doing the law’s bidding. I’m doing my duty under the law, as I see it,” Barr told CBS News in an interview Thursday.

Barr said he was “not at all” influenced by President Trump regarding the case.

“I made clear during my confirmation hearing that I was gonna look into what happened in 2016 and '17. I made that crystal clear,” Barr said.

“I was very concerned about what happened. I was gonna get to the bottom of it. And that included the treatment of General Flynn.”

Of course, the left was having none of it.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The political scene in this country has devolved into a huge sandbox, played in by highly monied children, with utterly no regard for the people who allegedly voted them into office, or confirmed them into positions of high power.

I have the visual feed for Faux news on right now, no sound, and one of the talking heads, Steve Doocy, is taking using his airtime to share a Mother's Day recipe.

All well and good, and it's great, feel-good, infotainment Friday theatre; but Steve, how about really taking care of the moms in this country by advocating for disengaging from the disastrous wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Libya, and Yemen, Steve?!?

How about putting some of the money these wars have cost this country into meaningful educational programs, guaranteeing that kids who graduate from our public high schools are numerate, literate, and can think critically?!?

Oh, but the Powers that Be don't want that, do they, Steve?!? They want technically sophisticated jingoists, willing to go to war against any country on the planet, in order to "defend their way of life", which is critically dependent on the US subsuming the resources of other countries, and only selling them in US dollars, right?!?

This is only going to happen when pigs discover they are aerodynamic, but wouldn't it be wonderful if the US celebration of Mother's Day was a real celebration of peace, intelligent cooperation, and goodwill to all countries around the world, particularly those which are suffering right now, like Russia with its Covid 19 epidemic; Venezuela; and Iran?!?

Just keep running those recipes, Steve; keep ignoring what really needs to be covered; it is obvious that your fan base loves you for it, and don't mind being underinformed, or completely uninformed, about those issues which are shaping, and will shape, our world for years to come.

Investors "Need To Be Mindful" As Bonds & Stocks Suffer "Biggest Disconnect"

Since the early March lows, Global stock markets are up over 25%, global central bank sponsored liquidity is up over $3 trillion, and global sovereign bond prices are also up around 3%. As the chart below shows, bonds and stocks are sending drastically different signals in this most recent melt-up...

Source: Bloomberg

The sharp stock market rebound has been fueled in a large part by massive policy support from central banks and governments, as well as by recent improvements in countries such as Italy and France.

“I would say it’s the biggest disconnect I’ve seen between bonds and stocks in a long time,” Invesco’s global market strategist Brian Levitt told Bloomberg by phone.

“I think we need to be very mindful about what the bond market is telling us.”

But for the strategist of the Atlanta-based firm which oversees about $1.2 trillion in assets, the economic recovery will likely be gradual, rather than a quick, V-shaped bounce.

Assange’s US Extradition, Threat to Future of Internet and Democracy

On Monday May 4, the British Court decided that the extradition hearing for WikiLeaks publisher Julian Assange, scheduled for May 18, would be moved to September. This four month delay was made after Assange’s defense lawyer argued the difficulty of his receiving a fair hearing due to restrictions posed by the Covid-19 lockdown. Monday’s hearing at Westminster Magistrates’ Court proceeded without enabling the phone link for press and observers waiting on the line, and without Assange who was not well enough to appear via videolink.

Firearms Instructor, Congressional Candidate Sue CA Governor Newsom For Violation of 1st Amendment.

"Defendants, in a gross abuse of their power, have seized the Coronavirus pandemic to expand their authority by unprecedented lengths. In times of crisis, governments often seek to curtail fundamental constitutional rights such as the right to assemble and petition the government. It is precisely at these times that those rights become the most important," said D.Gill Sperlein, a lead attorney for the plaintiffs.
"At a time when Californians are rightfully questioning the duration and extent of the stay at home orders, which are unevenly enforced and which have resulted in other Constitutional challenges, Governor Newsom has reacted to citizen protests not by addressing widespread concern, but simply by shutting down protest at the Capitol altogether, making no reasonable accommodations for this fundamental function in a free society."

US Fed blames rise of Nazis on Spanish flu in preemptive bid to dodge responsibility for post-Covid extremism

The US Federal Reserve has claimed the rise of Nazism in Germany was due to the 1918 influenza pandemic– historical revisionism that may seek to absolve the Fed from responsibility for the fallout from its own disastrous policies.

Influenza deaths during the 1918-1920 pandemic triggered “long-term societal changes” that led Germans to vote for Hitler en masse in 1933, New York Fed economist Kristian Blickle claims in a paper published with the Fed this month. Confusing correlation with causation on such a grand scale would get the average data scientist laughed out of a lecture hall, but Blickle works for the Fed, so his conclusions were reprinted with a straight face in the Wall Street Journal on Monday.

Western MSM Chastise Russia For Taking Timely COVID Measures Which US & EU Failed to Do

Despite sharing a 4,000km border with China, Russia has so far been trailing far behind Beijing as well as the US, Italy, and its European neighbours as far as confirmed COVID-19 cases and even further in terms of fatalities. The issue has landed Moscow on the radar of Western media, yet again unleashing a new wave of Russia-bashing.

"Mainstream media coverage of the coronavirus situation in Russia has been most ugly in the United States, where the Information War on Russia is not being abandoned even though the overwhelming interest of the public is on the ‘home front’ and how the disease is spreading there, the daily death toll, and the economic impact", says Gilbert Doctorow, a Brussels-based independent political analyst.
