Nancy Pelosi does not want you to see this

Nancy Pelosi does not want you to see this.
This is her district. Filmed this morning. Pelosi can kneel and pander in DC — but this is how a many black people live in the district she has represented for 33 years.
Tent cities.
Filth.
Drugs.
I hope she sees this in her mansion

Robert 'Rich Dad, Poor Dad' Kiyosaki: What The Elites Don't Want You To Know

Authored by Mac Slavo via SHTFplan.com,

Robert Kiyosaki, the author of Rich Dad, Poor dad says there’s something the elitists don’t want you to know. There’s a simple way to take back your power, and it involves removing yourself from any centralized banking system.

These centralized systems were all set up for the elite by the elite, and they don’t want you to know you can remove yourself from the system, or the Matrix, so to speak. All you have to do is invest and spend outside of their system. Decentralized systems are already in place, and the key to breaking free involves understanding that the central banks were not set up to help you.

"Powell Is Now Helpless": Even A Modest Market Wobble Threatens To Devastate The Real Economy

Authored by Eric Peters, CIO of One River Asset Management

“We’re not even thinking about thinking of raising rates,” declared America’s Fed Chairman, all but eliminating uncertainty about the Fed policy path through 2022. The S&P 500 had completed a historic recovery from the pandemic lows to trade higher on the year, its price utterly disconnected from today’s economic devastation.

But markets never discount today, they discount tomorrow. And no sooner had they taken a little peek at what prices looked like back on January 1st then they began to plunge.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Please, and I know I sound like a chipped CD on this, get your credit cards as paid off as humanly possible; credit is likely to become highly more expensive as we wade through this time.

Make sure you have adequate food, meds, water, and protection with which you feel comfortable; find people around you with whom you can barter. If you can buy silver, do so, and now. Economically, there us utterly no telling what is around the corner for this country, or how soon things may cascade downward even more.

A Shocking Eye-Witness Account Of What's Really Happening During The Seattle Riots

Authored by Daisy Luther via The Organic Prepper blog,

A social media post (which has been removed) by a member of the Washington National Guard has been shared more than 7000 times since it was written on June 12th. It’s a true education in mob mentality.

As Toby Cowern says, “Look how much ‘othering’ has been done already. Once that’s happening there’s a big problem.”

He’s right – and here’s the shocking truth about what’s really going on in Seattle from a person who had a front-row ticket to the mayhem.

You may be completely on your own.
As you can see, you can’t depend on anyone to come and save you when unrest shows up in your neighborhood. The people who were there, willing, and able to defend Seattle were forced to stand down. You have to expect to be completely on your own. Learn more about how to stay safe during civil unrest scenarios here.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have never been more grateful for being in an essentially very rural part of the country, where neighbors know who you are, and are very polite, and kind from the heart.

I am not a confrontational person, but there seems to be some agendas driving this kind of behaviour which are not actually in favor of We the People; that concerns me.

Mike and I peacefully demonstrated against the coming war against Iraq on Oahu, all the time being watched and photographed by someone who could well have been an IDF agent; we were not sure.

But the more violent these demonstrations become, the more concerned I am about them being used as the excuse to suspend the Constitution and Bill of Rights, and impose martial law in this country; I am hoping and praying that I am wrong on this.

"You Can't Rally But We Can Protest!"

These people want you to believe that this pandemic is caused by some magical woke virus, one which somehow skips those who have the right politics. What it actually does is raise the suspicion that Democrats and progressives have wanted to keep the economy shut down and people at home as long as possible to affect the outcome of the November election. Your job and your family or your church (also protected by the First Amendment) are not important. Our joining in large crowds to protest is.

There is almost assuredly going to be a spike in COVID cases and it will also almost assuredly be put on red-state governors and the President holding rallies. But Democratic activists and politicians themselves created this situation. They encouraged the world to disregard lockdown and people will now follow their lead, no matter how much they are scolded by the media. These people think we’re all stupid. We’re not.

From Occupation to ‘Occupy’: The Israelification of American domestic security

One of the first comprehensive surveys of Israeli training of US local and federal law enforcement officials.
By Max Blumenthal

(Editor’s note: The eruption of national protests against police brutality following the murder of George Floyd have shed new light on Israel’s training of local police officers across the country.

100 members of the 800-strong Minneapolis police department were trained at a conference in Israel in 2012. That means at least one of every eight members the city’s force has been influenced by the methods of an occupying apartheid entity.

Pentagon Starts Bailing Out Companies That have Lost Business Due to Coronavirus

The Defense Department is sending millions of dollars to keep companies afloat, and more deals are expected.

The Pentagon has begun to bail out U.S. companies that have seen large parts of their business dry up amid the coronavirus pandemic, in a bid to make sure they can still build weapons.

On Wednesday, officials announced that five mid-tier defense companies had received a total of $135 million to “help sustain defense-critical workforce capabilities in body armor, aircraft manufacturing, and shipbuilding,” according to a Defense Department statement.“These actions will help to retain critical workforce capabilities throughout the disruption caused by COVID-19 and to restore some jobs lost because of the pandemic,” Lt. Col. Mike Andrews, a Defense Department spokesman, said in the statement.

Crumbs for the people who really need the help; massive assistance to the companies which make things that kill.

Pompeo Tells US Jewish Group China a Growing Threat to US, Israel

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo gave a speech to the American Jewish Committee (AJC) annual conference, centering on mounting US hostility toward China, and arguing that China and its foreign policy are a mounting challenge to both the US and Israel.

The AJC tends to take positions favorable to Israel, though in general the interests of Israel and China don’t conflict or intersect much. Pompeo played up the idea that China is a threat to the American “way of life” and endangers everyone.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

PLEASE tell me that this is not the same guy who is planning to meet with Chinese leadership in Hawaii in the next couple of weeks to "ratchet down tensions!!"

Black UC Berkeley History Professor: BLM as DNC fundraiser-front + George Floyd 6 felony convictions + useful idiot protesters = .01% slave-masters dividing America again (Bonus: two film takes of George Floyd’s arrest + Obama Tweet of Floyd week before)

Hat tips: David Icke, ZeroHedge

A Black UC Berkeley History Professor wrote an open letter to voice argument that Black Lives Matter (BLM) promotes division and ongoing slavery by blaming Whites rather than oligarchs for Black problems, honoring a 6-time convicted felon, lying to the public when BLM donations go to Democratic political candidates (like “You ain’t Black” if you don’t vote for me Joe Biden), and diminishing Black agency.

Five minutes of Candace Owens’ support that this is disingenuous “Black card” reverse racism (Candace’s longer discussion here):

The professor wrote anonymously in fear of losing his job for being “racist,” and becoming unemployable. UC Berkeley’s History Department Tweeted to condemn the anonymous letter.

COVID-20: AIDS-SARS-spliced outbreak may happen in September, says Dr. Jerome Corsi

(INTELLIHUB) — Dr. Jerome Corsi appeared on the Intellihub Podcast on Saturday where he revealed details from his most recent investigation into COVID-19 and what he believes will be an AIDS-SARS-mixed virus dubbed COVID-20 that he said may arrive in September.

“The COVID-19 is not that potent,” he told Intellihub’s Shepard Ambellas. “It’s kind of like a bad flu.”

Democrats are reportedly HIDING Biden’s economic advisers (as well as Joe himself) - and there is a simple reason for that

By offering no specifics about his policies or advisers, Democratic presidential hopeful Joe Biden is letting supporters project their hopes and dreams onto his campaign. The strategy works, so long as he doesn’t open his mouth.
After drawing outrage from progressives for having Larry Summers – a neoliberal economist who ran the Treasury under Bill Clinton and later Harvard University – advising the campaign, back in April, Biden’s handlers have decided to keep mum about his advisers going forward.

Anyone advising Biden has been sworn to secrecy, banned from even acknowledging their relationship with the campaign, let alone revealing the names of other members, according to a New York Times feature on Thursday, titled ‘Biden’s Brain Trust on the Economy: Liberal and Sworn to Silence’.

“Simply put, do not talk to the press,” according to an email from the campaign the Times somehow obtained.

Pompeo Going to Meet Chinese Officials in Hawaii – Reports

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is going to hold a meeting with Chinese government officials in Hawaii, media reported.

Details of the meeting are being currently finalized, the Politico newspaper reported, citing two sources.

The US Department of State and the Chinese Embassy in the United States have not commented on the reports yet, Politico added.

Under President US Donald Trump's administration, relations between the two countries have considerably soured, with Washington accusing Beijing of unfair trade practices, human rights violations in some of its regions, and encroachment on the special status of Hong Kong. China has denied the accusations and, in its turn, pointed to various violations of international law on the part of the United States.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Would I love to be a fly on THAT wall, in one of the meeting rooms where this meeting is to happen!!!!

Treasury chief refusing to disclose recipients of virus aid

Building ramparts of secrecy around a $600 billion-plus coronavirus aid program for small businesses, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin has moved from delay to denial in refusing outright to disclose the recipients of taxpayer-funded loans.

Mnuchin told Congress at a hearing this week that the names of loan recipients and the amounts are “proprietary information.” While he claimed the information is confidential, ethics advocates and some lawmakers see the move as an attempt to dodge accountability for how the money is spent.

Businesses struggled to obtain loans in the early weeks of the program, and several hundred publicly traded companies received loans despite their likely ability to get the money from private financial sources. Publicly shamed, a number of big corporations said they would return their loans.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The secrecy around these loans has to do with the fact that it was the most monied companies in the US which got the lion's share of the prize here, and the current Administration doesn't want it's "base" to understand that, of course.

The Worst of All Possible Worlds? Echoes of Orwell’s Dystopian 1984. Mass Surveillance, Police State Rule, Struggle to Survive…

Longterm harm caused by US policies at home and abroad are far removed from a Panglossian best of all possible worlds view.

What’s going on has echoes of Orwell’s dystopian 1984.

Both right wings of the US war party wage forever wars against invented enemies.

Mass surveillance, controlling the message, and countering resistance are what police state rule is all about, how the US operates domestically, what it wants imposed on other nations worldwide.

The disparity between super-wealth and growing poverty in the US is greater than any time since the 19th century gilded age.

The nation’s economic policy elevates all yachts to unprecedented levels while protracted main street Depression harms ordinary Americans with nothing ongoing to change things.

Countless millions of US households face unacceptable choices between paying rent or servicing mortgages, seeking increasingly unaffordable medical care when needed, heating homes in winter, and feeding family members.

Video: Hearing Is Not Like Seeing: NATO’s Terrorists Burning Syrian Wheat Crops

A video clip shared by local farmers from Ras Al-Ayn showing an inferno burning their livelihood before their eyes, hundreds of acres of wheat on fire just as the crop is due to harvest.

We’ve been reporting about these fires in areas of operation of the NATO’s Turkish (Orwellian-named) ‘Spring of Peace’ military operation in northern, and especially in northeastern Syria regions as well as in areas where remnants and sleeper cells of NATO-sponsored terrorists of ISIS and its affiliates are active in the south of the country.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is a companion story at globalresearch.ca, with the following headline:

The US Admits They Are to Blame for Hunger in Syria

The article goes on to state: "United States Special Envoy to Syria, James Jeffrey, announced on Sunday that Washington had offered Syria a proposal to end the US sanctions. The Foreign and Expatriates Ministry in Damascus said that the statements by James Jeffrey constitute a clear admission by the Trump administration of it being directly responsible for the suffering of Syrians. The Syrians see the increasing sanctions as economic-warfare after the US failure to bring about ‘regime change’, by using terrorists supported by the CIA. Damascus declares the sanctions violate human rights and international law as they affect the Syrian population.

President Trump inherited the Syrian war from its creator, former President Obama. In 2016, Trump campaigned with a promise to stop US support of the war in Syria; however, he has since invaded and occupied several areas in Syria and has declared he is there to keep the oil from being used by Syria. Russia entered Syria in 2015 at the request of Damascus to assist in the fight against Al Qaeda and ISIS terrorists.

The newest sanctions have a 5-year life-span, and can be dismissed if seven criteria are met; however, the first two points are designed specifically to prevent fighting the Al Qaeda terrorists who control Idlib and are holding about 3 million persons as human shields. Both Syria and Russia, its ally in Syria, have said defeating terrorism are strategic goals."

War crimes abroad.... domestic violence directed against citizens at home; but hell, it's... the Good old USA, right?!? The Unhinged, Surveilled State of Amerika, right?!?!?

It sure looks like Trump and Adelson have cut a deal on annexation

So far, the Adelsons have gotten everything they’ve wanted from our transactional president: tearing up the Iran deal, moving the embassy to Jerusalem, defunding Palestinians, recognizing the Golan annexation, treating settlement expansion as legitimate, etc. Right up to yesterday — a Trump attack on the ICC in the name of Israel. As Trump once said when a Republican rival was getting Adelson’s money, Adelson wanted a “perfect little puppet.”

Most important, the Adelsons got the Trump “peace plan,” which paves the way for annexation of the West Bank. When Trump announced his “vision,” there they were in the front row.

Look at it from Trump’s point of view. He doesn’t care about peace in the Middle East or Palestinian human rights. He wants one thing, to win in November, and he needs money.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So that is why this annexation is being rushed to 1 July, and with potentially deadly consequences for Palestinians.

Israel and the US Step Up Efforts To Intimidate the Hague War Crimes Court

Now, the ICC’s chief prosecutor, Fatou Bensouda, looks poised finally to give the court some teeth. She is threatening to investigate two states – the US and Israel – whose actions have been particularly damaging to international law in the modern era.

The court is considering examining widespread human rights abuses perpetrated by US soldiers in Afghanistan, and crimes committed by Israeli soldiers in the occupied Palestinian territories, especially Gaza, as well as the officials responsible for Israel’s illegal settlement program.

An investigation of both is critically important: the US has crafted for itself a role as global policeman, while Israel’s flagrant violations of international law have been ongoing for more than half a century.

The US is the most powerful offender, and Israel the most persistent.

Both states have long dreaded this moment – the reason they refused to ratify the Rome Statute that established the ICC.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

No matter the findings, neither Israel or the US will take any responsibility for the evils they have perpetrated; both nations believe that they are above any international law.

US Sends F-35s to Middle East, Likely Targeting Iran

The US is sending a new group of F-35s to the Middle East, though exactly why is subject to speculation, as Centcom’s report was just a list of things the costly plane could conceivably do.

Things like close air support are capabilities, but not strengths, and the US has other planes better suited to that role. This is fueling speculation that the move is aimed at Iran.

There seems no particular reason to be after Iran just now, but US hostility toward Iran comes and goes like the seasons, so it is as good an explanation as any.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It appears to me that the US military is sending these fighter jets around, so that they can appear as though they are actually "doing something", when in reality, many of the critical infrastructure problems have never gotten fixed.

Five F-35 issues have been downgraded, but they remain unsolved

The article goes on to state: "The F-35 Joint Program Office has put in place stopgap fixes for five key technical flaws plaguing America’s top-end fighter jet, but the problems have not been completely eliminated.

Last June, Defense News reported exclusive details about 13 major technical issues, known as category 1 deficiencies, impacting the F-35. The JPO has since quietly downgraded five of those issues to the lesser category 2."

Colorado Bill Requires "Re-Education" For Parents Who Refuse The COVID-19 Vaccine

Authored by Mac Slavo via SHTFplan.com,

Are you ready for re-education camps in the United States? Colorado has introduced a bill that would “re-educate” parents who refuse to vaccinate their child with the coronavirus vaccine.

The bill forces all doctors and medical staff to give vaccinations with no exemptions, even if they are in a situation where they believe it would not be in that child’s best interest. The bill’s current version, however, does not list any sanctions or punishments for medical staff that refuse, according to Life News.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder what very powerful members of the Colorado legislature, have a lot of money invested in pharmaceutical stocks, for such a draconian bill to even get considered.

US WILL SEND UKRAINE ANOTHER $250M IN WEAPONS, GEAR AND OTHER AID

SOURCE: DEFENSE ONE
The Pentagon will send weapons and other military aid worth $250 million to Ukraine as part of the four-year-old Ukraine Security Assistance Initiative, or USAI, defense officials announced Thursday.

The aid includes counter-artillery radars, air surveillance systems, other tactical equipment, military medical treatment, cyber defenses, “strategic communications,” according to a Thursday release by the Pentagon. Intended to help Ukraine fight the Russia-backed forces that have occupied part of the country’s eastern region since 2014, the aid aims to “enhance Ukraine’s defensive lethal capabilities and situational awareness in the maritime domain” and “counter Russian cyber offensive operations and misinformation.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Are you flipping kidding me?!?

The government is spending $1.5 BILLION on arms to Ukraine, when the level of corruption in that country's government is utterly laughable, and we have Americans homeless and hungry, sleeping in our streets?!?

This, folks, is insanity, writ large in national foreign policy.

TRUMP TO ISSUE EXECUTIVE ORDER ON POLICE REFORM

SOURCE: THE EPOCH TIMES
“We’re working to finalize an executive order that will encourage police departments nationwide to meet the most current professional standards for the use of force, including tactics for de-escalation,” Trump said at a roundtable with law enforcement, faith leaders, and small business owners at Gateway Church in Dallas.

“Also, we’ll encourage pilot programs that allow social workers to join certain law enforcement officers so that they work together,” he said.

“We’ll take care of our police. We’re not defunding police—if anything, we’re going the other route. We’re going to make sure our police are well trained, perfectly trained, [and that] they have the best equipment,” the president continued, to applause.

Trump later clarified the idea of encouraging police departments to “meet the most current professional standards of force.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder if systemic reform will ever, actually, find its way to those police departments and units with problems, due to the intractability of police unions, who tend to double down, even when their leadership knows that what was done by their members, was absolutely NOT by the book.

VIDEO: 9/11 DOCUMENTARY ON WTC BUILDINGS: SPOTLIGHT ON: SEVEN

SOURCE: AE911TRUTH.ORG

PBS affiliates across the country today will begin airing a five-minute version of the new documentary SEVEN directed by Loose Change creator Dylan Avery about the explosive findings of the recently completed University of Alaska Fairbanks study on the destruction of World Trade Center Building 7.

The short film, titled Spotlight On: SEVEN, will run for a minimum of three months on up to 200 local PBS stations, reaching at least three million viewers.

For those wanting to watch the short film on television, “Spotlight On” programs do not air at scheduled times because they run as needed in between longer shows. To have a good chance of catching it, you’ll need to be tuned in to PBS often. But rest assured that Spotlight On: SEVEN will be seen by at least three million people, most of whom will never have heard of or seen the collapse of Building 7.

The monsters who created this debacle should be tried and convicted for these heinous crimes, but never will be.

NEW EVIDENCE SUGGESTS TURKEY PREPARING FOR LIBYA-STYLE MILITARY INTERVENTION IN YEMEN

SOURCE: MINT PRESS
ADEN, YEMEN — As focus begins to turn to developments in Libya and the foreign interference that plagues the Arab country, it seems that Turkey already has its eye elsewhere, preparing for military involvement in Yemen in a move that has sparked concern among Yemenis already struggling against an intervention led by Saudi Arabia, famine and most recently, COVID-19.

Informed sources in Aden and Taiz revealed to MintPress that a militia belonging to the Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated El-Eslah Party, the ideological and political ally of Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan, is already engaged in the latest round of fighting in Yemen’s southern provinces, particularly in Abyan and Shabwa.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

President Obama originally sent "advisors" to Yemen, to placate the Saudi government; President Trump has "doubled down" on this approach, and put the US into the position of enabling Saudi war crimes in Yemen.

One has to wonder what Erdogan's "end game" against Saudi Arabia might well be here; Turkish control of Marib, perchance?!?

AMERICA CONVULSES IN PAIN, FED BAILS OUT THE WEALTHY

SOURCE: WOLF STREET

n a Wall Street Journal/NBC poll out today, 80% of the respondents said they feel that the country is spiraling out of control.

So there are some huge multi-faceted problems that need to be grappled with, and that need to be resolved, and people are hurting, and they’re frustrated, and they’re angry, and many are unemployed, and others have jobs that don’t pay enough to meet the rising living expenses, and small businesses are on the ropes, and there’s going to be a lot of pain.

And what does the Federal Reserve do?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I tend to be the Pollyanna in this little home of two.

But at 71, seeing the level of deliberate destruction being done at all levels to so many people, you will forgive me, at this point, for having a completely jaundiced eye toward the political process in this country, at every possible level.

The monied will take care of their own, and the rest of us can rot, thank you very much; that has been the most befitting description of the degradation of the American political process.

I see utterly no hope for this country, and have to wonder just how long things can hold together, before we see a complete balkanization of the Unhinged, Surveilled, State of Amerika, with the present, or future regime, will be powerless to prevent, because there is zero trust in the veracity of the political class.

China Makes "Technological Breakthrough" In Hypersonic Scramjet Ground-Test

As tensions rise between China and the US, and the race for hypersonic weapons heats up, the Chinese Communist Party's daily tabloid newspaper Global Times is reporting "record-breaking progress" has been made in scramjet technology to power its hypersonic weapons.

Researchers at the Institute of Mechanics under the Chinese Academy of Science developed and tested new scramjet technology that resulted in a ground test that lasted 600 seconds (considered a "technological breakthrough"). Now, this far outpaced the world record of 210 seconds set by Boeing's X-51 Waverider using experimental scramjet technology to achieve hypersonic flight.

A scramjet (supersonic-combustion ramjet) is a ramjet engine in which the airflow through the engine remains supersonic. Global Times notes that developing such an engine that can operate for an extended period remains challenging because advanced heat resistant materials and cooling of the engine are needed for March 5 (>3,800 mph).

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why does the US appear to be perpetually behind the proverbial 8-ball with Russia and China when it comes to weapons advances?!?

It appears to me to be because of institutional issues between the military industrial complex, and the Pentagon.

The leaders of the military industrial complex in this country appear to believe, that by contributing heavily to both political parties, that they should be held harmless, and indemnified, if their products wind up not as competitive as those of Russia and/or China, come late to field tests, or are even antiquated by the time they are deployed, and cost dramatically more money than original projections indicated.

That perception has to be changed, and quickly, if the US is to ever get ahead of the curve in its weapons development programs.

Strait Tensions Soar: Taiwan Test Fires Missiles, Beijing Sends Warplane

Eight months after we penned a piece titled "Taiwan Warns Of Possible Invasion If China's Economy Continues To Deteriorate" -- a virus pandemic has crippled the global economy and Taiwan on Thursday (June 11) conducted missile tests off several of its coasts as tensions between China and the US are rising in the Taiwan Strait.

The South China Morning Post (SCMP) is reporting that Taiwan has test-fired missiles off its eastern and southern coasts as the self-ruled island increases its defense capabilities against mainland China.

The tests were held near Taiwan's eastern county of Taitung and the Jiupeng military base in the southern part of the island on Thursday night.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US is is in no real position to assist Taiwan, rather than with already-concluded missile sales, which appears to be President Trump's only way of dealing with adversaries at this point in his presidency, other than sanctions.

"Never Again": Frustrated North Korea Says Trump-Kim Bromance Is Over

The Trump-Kim bromance which held the potential for a historic breakthrough toward lasting peace and denuclearization on the Korean peninsula may have run its course. A top Pyongyang official now says there's "little reason" to maintain ties.

"North Korea sees little use maintaining a personal relationship between leader Kim Jong Un and U.S. President Donald Trump if Washington sticks to hostile policies, state media reported on Friday - the two-year anniversary of the leaders’ first summit," Reuters reports of the surprisingly frank remarks.

Foreign Minister Ri Son Gwon said in statements reported by state news agency KCNA that Pyongyang is growing tired of what it sees as mere political point scoring from the US administration, with nothing actually changing for North Korea.

Removing A US President Without An Election

Authored by Paul Ryder via Counterpunch.org,

Five times in the last ninety years, elements of the U.S. power structure have tried to oust a sitting president without an election.

The efforts were aimed at Franklin Roosevelt, John Kennedy, Richard Nixon, Bill Clinton, and Donald Trump.

Two attempts succeeded and three failed... so far.

If the Democrats had understood Watergate, they would have noticed a key condition was missing: aggravated conflict between the president and the military-industrial complex. That is why the Democrats failed.

Of course, as 2020 election day approaches, President Trump has managed to create a triple crisis — his bungled COVID-19 response, the resulting economic paralysis, and his inciting a coast-to-coast police rampage — which may doom him with no effort by the Democrats. No one knows at this point.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It appears that history, ultimately, will be morally incapable of being kind in its judgement of one of the most horrifically failed Presidents in US history.

Orange County CA Rescinds Mandatory Facemask Order

NoMask.info - Orange County California, home of the beautiful beaches between Los Angeles and San Diego counties, has rescinded it's mandatory face mask order. Effective 6/12/20 at midnight, they changed the wording from "shall wear" a mask to now "strong recommendations" of should wear" a mask. Oddly, Orange County, which in years past had a reputation of being comprised of wealthy conservative Republicans and freedom-minded libertarians, took a month longer than neighboring San Bernardino and Riverside counties, which both rescinded their facemask orders in May.

In coastal Ventura County North of Los Angeles, county health officer Dr. Robert Levin refused to ever issue a facemask order and he actually backed-up his decision with scientific evidence and a plethora of medical studies, along with links and a video presentation by him. This hasn't gotten near enough attention and Dr. Levin should be highly commended for this very rare action

Coup on the way? Biden convinced ‘military will escort Trump from the White House with great dispatch’

(INTELLIHUB) — Former Vice President Joe Biden appeared on Fox News where he may have accidentally let the cat out of the bag per se when he alluded that a military deep state coup may be forming behind the scenes and may eventually be headed to the White House to remove President Donald Trump from the Oval Office physically.

The far-left candidate who can oftentimes barely remember his own name made a rather unusual statement after taking about how four chiefs of staff came out “ripping the skin off Trump.”

Undercover reporters infiltrate Antifa to reveal highly organized group training members for violent action

When President Trump recently said he planned to declare far-left extremist group Antifa a terrorist organization, there was a lot of talk about whether or not he could do so because it’s an umbrella term that describes a certain philosophy rather than an organized group. However, it’s clear that at least some parts of Antifa are indeed highly organized, as undercover reporters working on behalf of the investigative journalism nonprofit Project Veritas recently discovered.

In New York City, one undercover journalist managed to record young radicals getting instruction on fighting techniques and martial arts for riots. An Antifa fight instructor is seen describing the best way to injure opponents, saying that “a good liver or kidney shot” can cripple opponents and that floating ribs are also good targets.

Corporate media: proven liars complicit to kill millions, harm billions, loot trillions EVERY YEAR. Demanding .01% arrests yet, or prefer ‘coverage’ by lying sacks of spin?

As a professional historian, my published research is among hundreds documenting corporate media lies to treasonously war-murder human beings in ongoing Orwellian-illegal Wars of Aggression. These wars are started with lies; not “mistaken intelligence”: propaganda known to be false as they are told. Therefore, and the point of this article: nobody should believe anything corporate media says about anything.

Obviously, the proper citizen response to .01% liars responsible for war-murdering millions, including the direct and treasonous attack on US military to lie them into invading foreign lands to be rightfully attacked by the invaded, is to demand arrests of corporate media “leaders.” This includes those responsible for putting those lies into our “history” textbooks to propagandize our children. The purpose of those lies is perpetual and rapacious US rogue state empire; lying and looting to control natural and human resources for generations.

The Obama Foundation Tweets image of George Floyd 8 days before his death? Mystery solved

The Obama Foundation appears to have Tweeted out an image of George Floyd eight days prior to his reported murder.

It has been brought to the attention of Intellihub staff that former U.S. President Barack Obama’s foundation may have tweeted out an image that resembles George Floyd on May 17 eight days before the African-American security guard was reported to have died at the hands of a Minneapolis police officer named Derek Chauvin.

On May 17 a Tweet containing an image that appears to be George Floyd was released.

The Tweet reads: “Did you tune in to @BarackObama’s commencement message last night? Here are a few of our favorite watch parties. Respond to this thread with your photos from last night and keep the celebration going at http://obama.org. #GraduateTogether”

WHO on the "social and psychological acceptance" of Face Masks

Despite admitting today that "the widespread use of masks by healthy people in the community setting is not yet supported by high quality or direct scientific evidence,"
The WHO declares "The likely advantages of the use of masks by healthy people in the general public include: "reduced potential stigmatization of individuals wearing
masks to prevent infecting others; making people feel they can play a role in contributing to stopping spread of the virus; & encouraging public
acceptance of protection measures in general. Consider the social and psychological acceptance (of both wearing and not wearing different types of masks in different contexts."

WHO 6/8/20: "The widespread use of masks by healthy people in the community setting is not yet supported by high quality or direct scientific evidence"

The corporate media is reporting that the World Health Organization finally joined the CDC in recommending masks for everyone, but if you read the WHO's actual report dated today June 8, 2020, what it actually says is "Many countries have recommended the use of fabric masks/face coverings for the general public. At the present time, the widespread use of masks by healthy people in the community setting is not yet supported by high quality or
direct scientific evidence and there are potential benefits and harms to consider (see below)...the use of a mask alone is insufficient to provide an
adequate level of protection"

Archbishop of Seattle Asks Catholic Mass Attendees To "Please Cooperate" In a "Voluntary Registration" for Contact Tracing

Archbishop Paul Dennis Etienne of Seattle Washington posted a video on May 29 with the regulations for re-opening the churches in his diocese. In a video posted on the diocese website, the Archbishop says "Some changes in the environment as well for this protection. Uuhh, We are going to ask for a voluntary registration of those who come primarily so that should there be a flareup of this virus, we will be able to appropriately contact trace and alert others who may have been inadvertently exposed. So please cooperate with this measure as well."

Canada Indigenous groups demand probe after police kill woman

Moore, 26, was shot dead on Thursday by a police officer in Edmundston, in the eastern province of New Brunswick. A relative had called police to check Moore's health.

Edmundston police said the woman had threatened the officer with a knife. According to the family, the officer fired five times to subdue her.

Moore's "tragic killing ... during a wellness check has vividly shown all Canadians that Indigenous peoples in Canada continue to face a very different set of circumstances when interacting with the policing and justice systems in Canada", said CPA National Chief Robert Bertrand.

'Should never happen'
While officials have opened a probe into Moore's death, the national chief of the Assembly of First Nations (AFN), Perry Bellegarde, said the shooting must be investigated by an impartial third party to determine why lethal force was used and whether race was a factor in the officer's response.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Apparently, Canada is no stranger to indigenous people getting treated badly.

Eyewitness: Caretaker shouted 'he's disabled' before soldier shot autistic Palestinian

The testimony matches that of Eyad Hallaq's caregiver. Meanwhile, the version of events recounted by two officers involved in the incident is inconsistent.

New eyewitness testimony in the shooting and killing of Eyad Hallaq, a 32-year-old autistic Palestinian man, in Jerusalem's Old City last Saturday, strengthens the suspicion that police shot him while he was lying on the ground, and after his counselor yelled that he was disabled.

The witness, A.R., a laborer, was in the garbage-bin space where Hallaq fled to get away from the police. According to his testimony, which was taken by B'Tselem investigator Amer Aruri on the day Hallaq was shot, A.R. was sitting in the garbage room ? a small, roofless structure used by sanitation workers on Sha'ar Ha'arayot Street.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

An "honest mistake"; or deliberate assassination, as part of the IDF's multi-faceted "Final Solution" for all Palestinians?!?

Netanyahu vows all settlements will be annexed July 1, but other lands may wait

Meeting with West Bank mayors who have refrained from trashing Trump plan, PM also quoted saying that the territory conditionally offered to Palestinians doesn’t constitute a state.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told settler leaders on Sunday that he still intends to annex all West Bank settlements on the July 1 date that is the earliest allowed by his coalition deals, but he acknowledged that annexing other lands allocated to Israel under the Trump peace plan will likely take more time, several participants in the meeting told The Times of Israel.

The remarks reaffirmed Netanyahu’s self-declared July 1 target date for extending Israeli sovereignty to all West Bank settlements but also appeared to mark the first time he has admitted to long-reported delays by the joint US-Israeli team tasked with mapping out the further territories to be annexed, mainly in the Jordan Valley.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have warned what passes for Palestinian leadership for years that if they didn't take a more decisive, but peaceful, stand for a Palestinian state, it wouldn't even be the size of Lichtenstein; I hate having been right on this.

With all other legal actions being barred to them, the Palestinians need to advocate, peacefully, for Israeli citizenship in the newly annexed areas; this appears to be their only possible representational salvation left.

America’s Forever Wars Have Come Home

Here’s a little portrait of the United States in June 2020, a passage from a New York Times report on the National Guard’s treatment of a recent protest march of people chanting "We can’t breathe!" in Washington, D.C.:

"A Black Hawk helicopter, followed by a smaller medical evacuation helicopter, dropped to rooftop level with its searchlights aimed at the crowd. Tree limbs snapped, nearly hitting several people. Signs were torn from the sides of buildings. Some protesters looked up, while others ran into doorways. The downward force of air from the rotors was deafening. The helicopters were performing a ‘show of force’ – a standard tactic used by military aircraft in combat zones to scatter insurgents."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As someone who, many, many years ago, graduated from a "rainbow college", featuring any and every ethnicity one could imagine, and understanding how people could work together for the common good, because everyone there got along brilliantly, all intent on getting that diploma, what continues to keep happening in this country, in terms of violence in our inner cities, just breaks my heart.

And the practice of "kettling" by our police departments, has to stop, please, and right now.

White House Tries to Link US Protests to Venezuelan Government: Allegations appear to hinge on Max Blumenthal's t-shirt

The best part of a major, nationwide protest movement is having someone to blame. This weekend, the new narrative embraced by the White House would pin large US protests against police brutality on Venezuela’s President Nicolas Maduro.

The Trump Administration has had a problem with Maduro for a long time, and in just the past few months had also accused him of being involved in the drug trade, justifying a bounty on his head that culminated in a failed invasion by a private US company.

The White House is refusing to offer any proof on this, saying it was “non-open source.” Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL) cited certain news reports from Latin America. The whole thing, incredibly, all falls back on Max Blumenthal’s T-shirt.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

OK, WHO in the White House is off their meds, in order to come up with such an unhinged linkage?!?

Apparently in the operative collective-think of the White House, reasonable people living in our inner cities, who are consistently exposed to a steady diet of police violence, have absolutely no reason to be upset when that violence resulted in the death of an unarmed man.

Was Floyd an angel?!? The short answer is, absolutely not; but in light of the fact that he was already subdued and in custody, why did this cop believe he had the right to asphyxiate him with the hold he used?!?

I cannot believe for one second that he didn't know what he was doing, and what the ultimate outcome would have been.

There is a great deal we urgently need to fix in our own back yard as Americans, before we lecture other countries about their perceived "wrong-doings."

White House, Pentagon tensions near breaking point

Friction in this relationship, historically, is not unusual. But in recent days, and for the second time in Trump’s term, it has raised a prospect of high-level resignations and the risk of lasting damage to the military’s reputation.

Calm may return, both in the crisis over Floyd’s death and in Pentagon leaders’ angst over Trump’s threats to use federal troops to put down protesters. But it could leave a residue of resentment and unease about this president’s approach to the military, whose leaders welcome his push for bigger budgets but chafe at being seen as political tools.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is an horrific irony here, and I say this with the greatest respect for our country's military; geopolitically, the military, particularly in the 20th and 21st century, have been the tools of destabilization and regime change across the globe, from Iraq, to Afghanistan, Somalia, and Syria.

The pattern is obvious, for anyone with more than two brain cells to rub together; destabilise, regime change, and insure that the only monetary unit in which that country's resources are sold, are in US dollars.

It is NOT the military's fault that this keeps happening; it is the entire fault of the US civilian government, ordering them to continue to behave in this manner, which is the problem, to fatten the coffers of the already well-monied.

In this country, we have the illusion of change, every 4 years, rather than any substantive real change in domestic or foreign policy; because no matter who, and which party wins, the "War Party" in this country has full bi-partisan support.

This... is the grim reality I see this election year, and every election year.

The late George Carlin was an incredible comedian, but more than that, in his own way a prophet. George Carlin on War:
how bombing brown people became a growth industry

The article went on to state:"“In a sane and just society, the architects of the nearly 17-year-old war in Iraq, which is still ongoing and has left an estimated half-million people dead, would face war crimes charges and those who cheered them on would be thoroughly discredited.”
— Jessica Schulberg, HuffPost

Amid swirling tensions between President Donald Trump, Iran, and the potential for a new war in the Middle East, a historic clip resurfaced on social media of comedian George Carlin, bemoaning the pattern of American militarism in which the United States, often with the help of a conspiring media and a lazy public, jump into a major war just about every twenty years.

Carlin recorded the routine entitled “Rockets and Penises in the Persian Gulf” as part of an HBO special in 1992, on the heels of the first Gulf War launched by President George H.W. Bush. The clip was shared on Twitter, as a War Powers Resolution to block Trump from additional attacks on Iran was debated on Capitol Hill. The message of Carlin’s routine was proven once again relevant."

NEW YORK COPS SUSPENDED AFTER SHOVING 75-YEAR-OLD MAN TO THE GROUND IN VIRAL VIDEO

SOURCE: ZEROHEDGE
The Buffalo, New York Police Department has suspended two officers without pay and launched an Internal Affairs investigation after a viral video showed the cops shoving a 75-year-old protester onto a concrete sidewalk as police cleared Niagara Square during enforcement of a citywide curfew.

The man can be seen bleeding from the head following the incident.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have looked at this video again and again, and keep asking myself, at 71 years of age, was there no other way of dealing with this old guy, who could not have possibly been a physical threat to the officers involved?!?

And folks, in my world, the short answer is, absolutely, yes, there were other ways; the guy just made for a convenient target.

FUNDED BY KEVIN DURANT, FOUNDED BY EX-GOOGLE ENGINEERS: MEET THE DRONE STARTUP SCORING MILLIONS IN GOVERNMENT SURVEILLANCE CONTRACTS

SOURCE: FORBES
With civil unrest erupting across the U.S., protesters vocalizing their support for the black community are being threatened with military force. America’s streets and skies are being flooded with officers from multiple federal agencies - the Army, FBI, ICE, CBP and DEA to name a few - called in to assist in Trump’s “domination” of dissenting voices.

They come armed with next-generation surveillance technologies, many of them spying from the skies above, hooked up to inconspicuous drones that can autonomously track people. These devices have cost the U.S. government tens of millions of dollars in the last year alone, according to a Forbes review of contract records.

‘The Selfie Drone’

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder; how soon will these drones become weaponized to "take out" people who, peacefully, and pointedly, ask "the wrong questions" about what is going on in this country?!?!

A QUARTER OF AMERICANS SKIPPED MEALS OR RELIED ON FOOD BANKS DURING VIRUS LOCKDOWNS 

SOURCE: ZEROHEDGE
As the economy slips into recession, driven by high unemployment, not seen since the 1930s, a quarter of Americans have skipped meals or relied on charity or government food programs since February, according to Kaiser Family Foundation's May Tracking Poll survey of over 1,100 US adults (conducted between May 13-18).

"One in four Americans (26%) say they or a member of their household have skipped meals or relied on charity or government food programs since February, including 14% who say they have reduced the size of meals or skipped meals because there wasn't enough money for food, 13% who have visited a food bank or pantry for meals, and 13% who have applied for or received SNAP benefits," the survey said.

Webmaster's Commentary:

SOURCE: THE INTERCEPT

ONE DAY AFTER West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice’s shelter-in-place orders went into effect, the governor quietly signed into law the Critical Infrastructure Protection Act. In the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, the law created new felony penalties for protest actions targeting oil and gas facilities, as the state continues to confront opposition to two massive natural gas pipelines designed to cut through delicate forests, streams, and farmland.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What great timing on the part of Virginia's governor!!!

Getting people to cower in their homes (as if this could really stop the Covid-19 virus), and signing off on this legislation!

GENETICALLY MODIFIED MOSQUITOES COULD BE RELEASED IN FLORIDA AND TEXAS BEGINNING THIS SUMMER – SILVER BULLET OR JUMPING THE GUN?

Time to reassess risk assessment?

However, it is difficult to assess how EPA regulators weighed and considered public comments and how much of the evidence used in final risk determinations was provided solely by the technology developers.

The closed nature of this risk assessment process is concerning to us.

There is a potential bias and conflict of interest when experimental trials and assessments of ecological risk lack political accountability and are performed by, or in close collaboration with, the technology developers.

This scenario becomes more troubling with a for-profit technology company when cost- and risk-benefit analyses comparing GM mosquitoes to other approaches aren’t being conducted.

SADISTIC RIOT COPS SHOOT INNOCENT WHEELCHAIR-BOUND HOMELESS MAN IN THE HEAD

SOURCE: MATT AGORIST
(Support Free Thought) -

It is important to point out that many of the arrests we are seeing involve violations of unconstitutional curfews which have been enforced across the nation — not actual crimes. When citizens refuse to be silenced and do not go home when told they have to, police begin a process known as kettling which provokes violence by trapping protesters in a fight or flight type situation.

Essentially, people who stay out past the curfew are being kettled by cops who do not allow them to leave and then are tear gassed, pepper sprayed, beaten with batons, and then arrested.

This tactic is highly controversial because multiple instances have captured cops abusing people who are innocent, including the press, and bystanders who are not even participating in the protests — like innocent homeless people in wheelchairs.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

WHAT THE FLIP WAS LAPD THINKING?!?

Shooting a homeless guy imprisoned in a wheelchair?!?

GOOD LORD!!

POLICE CHIEF FORCED TO RESIGN AFTER SUPPORTING CITIZENS WHO ARMED UP AMID RIOTS

SOURCE: ZEROHEDGE
Lowell, Michigan Police Chief Steven Bukala was forced to resign on Thursday after 25 years with the force, after writing on Facebook in support of four young men who armed themselves against potential violent protesters.

Responding to phone calls that 2nd Amendment demonstrators were open carrying down Main Street, Bukala wrote on the Lowell Police Deparment’s Facebook page on Tuesday: "We are aware and no need to call us," adding "We at the Lowell Police Department support the legally armed citizen and the Second Amendment," according to WZZM13.

After a flood of complaints as part of what WZZM says was a "pattern of inappropriate behavior," the city manager told Bukala to resign by 5 p.m. on Friday or be fired at 5:01 p.m.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The framers of the Constitution and Bill of Rights were very aware of the ability of governments to mow down various segments of the population who were powerless to rise against it, because they were unarmed.

Legal gun ownership, coupled with responsible people who would not do any harm with a weapon except to defend those they cared about, is something this country cannot afford to lose, and particularly not right now.

FBI LAUNCHES OPEN ATTACK ON 'FOREIGN' ALTERNATIVE MEDIA OUTLETS CHALLENGING US FOREIGN POLICY | THE GRAYZONE

SOURCE: THE GRAYZONE
UNDER FBI ORDERS, FACEBOOK AND GOOGLE REMOVED AMERICAN HERALD TRIBUNE, AN ALTERNATIVE SITE THAT PUBLISHES US AND EUROPEAN WRITERS CRITICAL OF US FOREIGN POLICY. THE BUREAU’S JUSTIFICATION FOR THE REMOVAL WAS DUBIOUS, AND IT SETS A TROUBLING PRECEDENT FOR OTHER CRITICAL OUTLETS.

BY GARETH PORTER
The FBI has publicly justified its suppression of dissenting online views about US foreign policy if a media outlet can be somehow linked to one of its adversaries. The Bureau’s justification followed a series of instances in which Silicon Valley social media platforms banned accounts following consultations with the FBI.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

WRH does not communicate on Facebook Instagram, or Twitter, because of the very clear understanding that these strictures have been well in place for quite some time now. They cannot deplatform us, because we are not attempting to communicate there.

And unfortunately, the real threat to US national security right now... comes from the US government itself, in both national and international policies, which is a very sad commentary to have to make at this point on the 21st century.

PENTAGON WAR GAME INCLUDES SCENARIO FOR MILITARY RESPONSE TO DOMESTIC GEN Z REBELLION

SOURCE: THE INTERCEPT
In the face of protests composed largely of young people, the presence of America’s military on the streets of major cities has been a controversial development. But this isn’t the first time that Generation Z — those born after 1996 — has popped up on the Pentagon’s radar.

Documents obtained by The Intercept via the Freedom of Information Act reveal that a Pentagon war game, called the 2018 Joint Land, Air and Sea Strategic Special Program, or JLASS, offered a scenario in which members of Generation Z, driven by malaise and discontent, launch a “Zbellion” in America in the mid-2020s.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is always comforting to understand the degree to which the US military "has the backs": of the already monied, and are more than ready to collectively "relieve themselves" on those whose futures have been already been squandered for the rest of us.
