BREAKING: Judicial Watch Uncovers FBI Documents Showing Evidence Of “Cover Up” Discussions Related to Hillary Clinton’s Private Server

Conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch announced Monday it uncovered 422 pages of FBI documents showing evidence of “cover up” discussion related to Hillary Clinton’s private email server with Platte River Networks.

The newly uncovered documents also show Charles McCullough, the Intel Community Inspector General forwarding “concerns” about classified information found on then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s emails.

Judicial Watch also obtained Hillary Clinton’s 2009 classified information Non-Disclosure Agreement bearing her signature.

Media pulled off big con with Russia collusion story

America got conned again.

It was all a big set-up. A ruse. A dirty canard.

The whole thing was one giant lie.

And everybody peddling it — from House Democratic leaders, to Senate Democrats running for president, to the Senate Republican who reported the whole thing in the first place, to the roaring lions of the Great White Media — knew it was a lie.

TIME sinks to new depths of hypocrisy and propaganda with latest cover story on scary Russia

With the Mueller investigation wrapped up and interest in Russia’s alleged misdeeds against the US threatening to wane among the masses, mainstream media has decided to widen the net and refocus Russia’s “other” evil schemes.

TIME magazine has gotten a head start with its latest cover story, authored by journalist Simon Shuster, literally titled “Russia’s other plot” and illustrated with the usual clichéd, Soviet-inspired scary red and black artwork.

Jewish Lobbyists Like the ADL Are Behind the Disgraceful Amazon Book Bannings

As most are surely aware, the last year or two has seen a growing crackdown on free speech and free thought across the Internet, with our constitutionally-protected First Amendment rights being circumvented through the agency of monopolistic private sector corporations such as Facebook, Twitter, and Google. Although as yet our government has not gained the power to ban discordant views nor punish their advocates, anonymous tech company censors regularly take these steps, seemingly based upon entirely opaque and arbitrary standards which lack any power of appeal. No one really knows why some individuals are banned or “de-platformed” and others are not, and surely this looming uncertainty has imposed self-censorship upon hundreds of individuals for every publicized victim who receives an exemplary punishment.

Pentagon’s Orwellian Madness: US Invades Iraq, Incites 60% Shiite Population, Blames Iran For Killing 608 US Troops!

When the Pentagon starts throwing around estimates of who got killed and how in its assorted wars in the Middle East, they are often wildly inaccurate. Nowhere was this more apparent than a new briefing this week on estimates in the 2003-2011 Iraq War.

Designed for Special Envoy Brian Hook to give hawkish speeches on Iran, the briefing estimated that Iran was "responsible" for the deaths of 608 US troopsduring the Iraq War. This was an upward revision from a 2015 estimate of 500, and seemingly was only done to allow Hook to bring it up now.

A more accurate estimate would, of course, be zero deaths. Despite years of anti-Iran rhetoric, the US has never conclusively pinned a single death on the Iranian government or its forces. Rather, these deaths are all loosely attributable to Iraqi Shi’ite factions.

The One Jewish State Solution

"There is obviously a big difference between the one-state call that has been pushed by Palestinian solidarity activists and Netanyahu’s politics of annexation. While Palestinian rights advocates are referring to one democratic state, Netanyahu is not committed to democracy at all. He is solely faithful to the Jewish population and what he offers in practice is a “One Jewish State Solution”. After all, Israel defines itself as “the Jewish State” and it is there to serve one people while denying others their most elementary rights.

"Israel, as we know, is not a state of its citizens; it is a state of its Jewish citizens. By the time Israel comes to term with its sin and transcends into a state of its citizens regardless of their race, ethnicity or religious belief, it will be renamed. It may as well be called Palestine...">>

Sorrento’s Wolfgang Halbig still insists Sandy Hook was faked

Wolfgang Halbig says he’s been attacked, harassed, his reputation destroyed – all for asking questions.

But they aren’t just any questions. Halbig has, with the help of InfoWars founder Alex Jones, broadcast conspiracy theories about the 2012 massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.

Halbig, a Sorrento resident, is named in defamation lawsuits against Jones filed by family members of the shooting victims. The suits say Jones and his associates have been spreading baseless claims about the Sandy Hook massacre that left 20 children and six educators dead.

In a deposition released last week, Jones said Halbig sent him thousands of emails over the years, providing him much of the information that helped propel the notion that Sandy Hook never happened, that it was a hoax cooked up by the government in its effort to take away Americans’ guns.

American Internet Companies are Privatized Instruments of American Geopolitical Power, and They’re Not Even Hiding It

I was in the New York Public Library recently doing research in the archives when I stumbled on a 1944 pamphlet from Western Electric, the old American techno-telephone monopolist. It’s called “Circuits for Victory” and its 40 glossy, slickly produced pages are dedicated to one thing: celebrating all the ways that the company’s telecommunication technology helps the United States government fight and win wars.

The pamphlet is a historical document, but if you squint at it right and replace “Western Electric” with, say, “Facebook” or “Google” or “Amazon,” you actually get an accurate sense of what Silicon Valley monopolies are today: privatized extensions of American Empire.

‘Russia has invaded Estonia, NATO is on the way’: German TV plumbs depths with fake war broadcast

A respected German analytical TV program opened its latest edition by informing viewers that Russian forces intruded into the Baltics. Was this "fantasy" just juvenile attention-seeking, or crude pro-NATO propaganda?

“Together with European and German allies, the US army is currently moving through land, air and sea to Estonia to expel Russian forces, which have once again invaded, as in Crimea before,” announced a worried Claus Kleber, host of heute journal, on the national public broadcaster ZDF Thursday night.

As millions of viewers tensed up, the veteran host announced that it was a “gotcha!”

“Do not worry. It is not true. This is just a fantasy scenario – but a realistic one,” said Kleber.

Countries arming Saudi Arabia, partners in crimes against Yemenis: Iran

Iran has strongly condemned the latest deadly airstrikes by Saudi warplanes in Yemen that killed more than a dozen civilians, most of them schoolchildren, saying countries that are arming the aggressors are complicit in the crimes.

"Countries that have caused the humanitarian catastrophe in Yemen by providing arms to the aggressors are accomplices in these crimes and must be held accountable for their support," Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi said on Monday.

He criticized the international community for remaining silent and indifferent to the atrocities committed by the Saudi-led coalition in its military campaign against Yemen and expressed sympathy with the families of victims.

The Iranian spokesperson called on the United Nations and countries involved in the Yemeni crisis to ramp up their efforts in order to put an immediate end to the attacks and adopt necessary measures to protect civilians, particularly women and children.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Iranian Foreign Minister Qassemi, I agree entirely with your position on this.

The assassination of children, is tantamount to the destruction of a country's rightful future, bit by bit; because all of today's kids will grow up to take their rightful place in the world in the next couple of decades.

There would be no earthly reason for you to know who I am, but I would like to share this with you; my husband and Mike are both peace activists, very concerned that of late, this country seems to believe that the only way to resolve its geopolitical disputes, is the invocation, and execution, of war.

We never advocate violence, ever.

Mike Flynn's Alleged Honeypot Slams Russiagate 'Spy' Stefan Halper And Journos Who Covered For Him

A Russian-born academic accused of being a Kremlin operative claims she was "used" to smear former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn over an unplanned contact they had at a 2014 dinner at the University of Cambridge, England when Flynn was the Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency under President Obama.

38-year-old Svetlana Lokhova met Flynn at the February 2014 Cambridge dinner organized by Sir Richard Dearlove - a former head of MI6 who was launching an organization called the Cambridge Security Initiative, according to the BBC. Also part of the organizing group was alleged American spy Stefan Halper, a longtime spook and then-Cambridge professor emeritus widely reported to have infiltrated the Trump campaign and spied on several aides during the 2016 US election.

“National Security” and other Thought-Stopping Clichés

By Justin Murray

I was browsing the news recently and came across an interesting headline. It read “ U.S. Orders Chinese Company to Sell Grindr App ”. My first through was that the Federal Government was, once again, narrowly defining a monopoly to a ridiculous degree and decided this Chinese company was somehow monopolizing the swipe left/right mobile phone dating scene for gay men, similar to how long ago the FTC came to the conclusion that Blockbuster Video was monopolizing the narrow market of strip mall DVD and VHS rental locations that sport a blue logo when combating their attempted merger with Hollywood Video . But when I started reading the piece, I came across something even more bizarre. I kid you not, the entire justification for this forced sale was “national security”...

Only functioning airport in Libya's Tripoli hit by air raid - reports

The only functioning airport in the Libyan capital of Tripoli has been hit in an air raid, local TV and several agencies report, citing eyewitnesses. Heavy fighting broke out between the forces of the country's two governments.
A military aircraft belonging to the Libyan National Army forces has reportedly targeted Mitiga airport, located in the Libyan capital’s eastern suburb. Commanded by Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar the group challenged the government in Tripoli for power.

The Libyan authorities confirmed that the airport was closed following the airstrike, but provided no additional information on casualties or damage resulting from it. Mitiga has been the only airport used for international flights since the capital’s international airport was destroyed back in 2014.

Beware of Calls Saying Your Social Security Number is Suspended

As the FTC notes, Social Security numbers cannot be suspended, so any calls stating that they are is simply a scam. The attackers are just trying to trick you into providing your birth date, bank account numbers, social security numbers, and other sensitive information.

"Thing is, Social Security numbers do not get suspended," the FTC states in an advisory. "This is just a variation of a government imposter scam that’s after your SSN, bank account number, or other personal information. In this variation of the scheme, the caller pretends to be protecting you from a scam while he’s trying to lure you into one."

Expected bloodbath in Tripoli an outcome of ill-advised NATO toppling of Gaddafi, historian tells RT

Libya is back in the headlines after one of its two competing governments sent troops towards Tripoli. If another bloodbath happens there, it will be the inevitable result of the 2011 NATO bombing campaign, an expert told RT.
The Northern African country was once stable and quite prosperous thanks to large revenues from oil trade. But since 2011, when NATO supported a militant uprising and helped topple, then kill, longtime strongman leader Muammar Gaddafi, it remains a fractured failed state. Last week, the unending feuds between rival factions escalated, with Khalifa Haftar, a powerful military commander, launching an offensive against his rivals from the UN-recognized government in Tripoli.

The general is unlikely to immediately heed calls for a political settlement, believes US political commentator and historian Gerald Horne. This may escalate into a major battle in the capital.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Please remember; Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, was cheer-leading for Gaddafi's removal, and by any means necessary; once he had been assassinated, this threw the country into turmoil in 2011, and 8 years on, the turmoil continues.

This was one of the most spectacular "epic fails" of Clinton's tenure as Secretary of State, and ... if (God help us, no), she decides to run for President, and wins, one has to wonder; what other spectacular defects in her logic and vision will she demonstrate to both this country and the world?!?

I am looking at many of the possible geopolitical situations here which could go "mammary glands up" in a heartbeat, if unsound, or truly monumentally bad decisions are made by this country's leadership about how the US should approach challenges abroad.

So color me nervous about Libya right now; there are many factions looking at what seizing Tripoli, and the country, could mean for them, economically; and I would rather suspect that the US government is standing right in front of that line, trying to figure out how best to conjure a Lybia 2.0 invasion, but struggling to find ways which potentially insure, that the optics of such an invasion...appear to be a very different kind of animal, let's say, for example, like perhaps several battalions of enraged, GMO'd kangaroos, covertly chucking death stars out their pouches.

BUT, MIND YOU, THIS WILL NOT BE AN INVASION!!

But seriously, I have to wonder, if I had family in Libya, how I would get them out, or get them to safety, if the airports are ordered closed because of an on-coming military attack? If I had kids, or medically fragile elderly members who needed special care, and attention.

These are the kinds of brutal choices many families in the Middle East, Africa, and South Asia must make on a daily basis; but for me, the worst of this is, that these decisions are far too frequently a direct result of US foreign policy in their countries.

Time will, of course, resolve this; but to see so many people throughout the Middle East are are suffering, and will suffer so catastrophically because the international battles for their oil (usually courtesy of the Unhinged, Surveilled State of America).

I know that I am a citizen of a country whose leadership is very comfortable with being war criminals. As a Christian Pacifist, I never advocate violence.

But my suggestion here, is that my brother and sister Americans, need, urgently, to have a national conversation about what we can do (again peacefully) to assist our government in creating a different tone of its foreign policies, which might resemble a reasonably sane foreign policy.

Sanity in foreign policy tends to lead to peaceful, amicable relations with a country's neighbors, and the world.

This government desperately needs to rediscover what that means.

Sieff: The Most Dangerous Thing Trump Could Do Now Is Let Down His Guard

Uneasy Hangs the Head That Wears a Crown: The Lessons Donald Trump Needs to Learn from William Shakespeare.

Now that President Donald Trump has finally been exonerated from the always farcical Big Lie of Collusion with Russia in the 2016 election, the US leader had better watch out: The Deep State will really go after him now that it's supposed Soft Coup plot has failed.

Who can never afford to rest.

The forces opposed to Trump and his decent, sensible 2016 campaign vision of defusing tensions with Russia worked viciously, relentlessly and long to discredit the 45th President of the United States before he could even get going. The idea that they are now going to sit back like good losers because their entire pyramid of lies on Collusion with Russia has been exposed is ludicrous.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What these masters of destruction have accomplished through their reprehensively divisive actions and false accusations, has been to to encourage future wars, by betting on unstable, hubristic, sociopathic national leaders like Israel's Bibi Netanyahu; creating "regime changes",for example, when Ukraine's Yanukovich was thrown under the proverbial bus in order to "anoint" Pyotr Poroshenko; or cheerleading for new wars to start, like former Polish General Waldemar Skrzypczak, when he talks, fondly, of a US pre-emptive strike against Russia being "moral"

I would also like to politely point out to people like Adam Schiff and Nancy Pelosi, that every second they spend in this deplorable attempt to "cut a sitting President at the knees" (a literary reference, for those of you who didn't know), you are not doing what We the People hired you to do, which is to take care of the people you allegedly represent.

And I will tell you, in no uncertain terms one absolute, and immutable truth; the broad, deep, and dispassionate lens of history (if this planet survives these machinations to actually have a future) will judge you and your actions as criminal in the extreme.

But, of course, your alleged "constituents" never ever mattered in the first place, did they?!?

Winning a seat in the US Congress is much akin to buying the winning lottery ticket, with all the money, all the perks, and all the intel to turn you into a multi-millionaire.

It is a startling revelation of how many members of Congress are actually millionaires; and they can all be found, including their net worth, here:

Russiagate: A Moral Reckoning Is Due

Authored by Renee Parsons via Off-Guardian.org,

With Russiagate, the Democrats created some powerful karma to answer for; especially for the likes of Rep. Adam Schiff and Rep. Eric Swalwell, (D-Calif.), both of whom persist in the mindless search for the Holy Grail.

After cheating Bernie out of the nomination in 2016, the Dems had not yet learned their karmic lesson when they lost the Presidential election. The Mueller Report is but the latest of that karmic reckoning.

There is no pride in being one of those who “got it right” that there was no evidence, not a scintilla of material fact to prove collusion between the Trump campaign and the dastardly Russians. As the country has been torn asunder by a two year politically tainted investigation begun with no evidentiary standard and no probable cause, there is little satisfaction to be gained.

Trump's Neocons See Erdogan As Their Ticket To A Region-Wide MidEast War

Authored by Mike Whitney via The Unz Review,

Turkish troops and armored units are massed along Turkey’s southern border awaiting orders to invade northern Syria. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan wants to clear a ten mile-deep swath of land east of the Euphrates River in order to remove terrorist-linked militants (YPG) currently occupying the territory. The proposed offensive would put US Special Forces in the line of fire which significantly increases the likelihood of US casualties. If American troops are killed or wounded by the Turkish operation, Washington will respond in force leading to a potentially catastrophic face-off between the two NATO allies. The possibility of a violent clash between Turkey and the United States has never been greater than it is today.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder, in terms of the neocons, if plans are already in play for a "false flag" here, to be blamed on Turkey, as the US "provocation/justification" for an attack against it.

Dicey in the extreme?? But possible, as a way of distracting American voters who are fed up with Russiagate; stagnating salaries; and the horrific hardening of political lines in this country where, to some people, beating up someone who disagrees with you is a perfectly rational thing to do?!?

You bet your sweet bippy!!

And let us not forget that in tomorrow's Israeli election, Prime Minister Netanyahu is betting on re-election for a 5th term, in spite of corruption charges being laid against him.

He could really use international focus going...elsewhere.

After Golan, are Trump and Netanyahu coming for West Bank?

A warning: If Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is still in office in late 2020 or 2024, when President Donald Trump’s time in office is coming to a close, there is a good chance the two leaders will declare American recognition of Israeli annexation of all or most of the occupied West Bank.

The precedent for such a move was put in place Monday as two significant anti-Arab events took place in Washington.

First, at the annual AIPAC conference, Democratic and Republican speakers alike ignored the Israeli occupation of Palestinian and Arab territory, choosing instead to rail against Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, who has been vilified for openly criticizing the powerful Israel lobby group’s outsize influence.

A bipartisan consensus pretended that AIPAC was being silenced, turning on its head the reality that the organization is supporting legislation seeking to silence supporters of Palestinian rights.

AMERICAN INTERNET COMPANIES ARE PRIVATIZED INSTRUMENTS OF AMERICAN GEOPOLITICAL POWER, AND THEY’RE NOT EVEN HIDING IT

A DRUG RESISTANT “SUPER FUNGUS” KILLS NEARLY HALF THE PEOPLE IT INFECTS – AND IT IS SPREADING ACROSS AMERICA

SOURCE: THE ECONOMIC COLLAPSE

The medical community knew that a day of reckoning was coming. For years, they were repeatedly warned that the rampant overuse of certain types of medications would result in the development of “super diseases” that we would not be able to stop, and now that day has arrived. Just like many types of bacteria, fungi have also been developing defenses against our most effective modern medicines. One in particular, a fungus known as Candida auris, is now a massive public health threat. An expert quoted by the New York Times has admitted that it is “pretty much unbeatable”, it spreads very easily, and it kills close to 50 percent of the people that it infects. In other words, we are in the early chapters of a medical horror show of our own making, and there is no way out.

Candida auris (or C. auris for short) spreads most easily among those with weakened immune systems. Infants, seniors, smokers and diabetics are among the most vulnerable.

THE MANAGEMENT OF SAVAGERY: PRO-WAR LOBBYISTS PUSH TO BAN BOOK EXPOSING REGIME CHANGE WARS

Authored by Alexander Rubinstein via MintPress News

The Syrian American Council and a collection of pro-war lobbyists have led an intimidation campaign aimed at bullying a major Washington-based bookstore, Politics and Prose, into canceling award-winning journalist and author Max Blumenthal’s launch event for his new book The Management of Savagery.

And it appears to have worked. Politics and Prose announced that it would “postpone” the event, citing “concerns” over the event’s “format, substance, … [and] security” in a tweet. In a testament to the ferocity of the harassment campaign against the small chain, the company has pinned the statement to the top of its Twitter page so that anyone visiting it sees immediately that they caved.

NETANYAHU: IF I WIN ELECTION, 'I WILL EXTEND SOVEREIGNTY'

(Haaretz) Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told Israel’s Channel 12 News on Saturday evening that he will start extending Israeli sovereignty over the West Bank if re-elected prime minister in the election on April 9.

It remains unclear at this point whether Netanyahu was referring to all of the West Bank, or only parts of it.

“A Palestinian state will endanger our existence and I withstood huge pressure over the past eight years, no prime minister has withstood such pressure. We must control our destiny,” the premier said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Forgive me, Prime Minister Netanyahu; but could you, please possibly share with those who have read your promises to do this, (AFTER the 9 April, Israeli general elections, of course!) HOW a peaceful, democratic independent Palestine, trading with Israel and other countries in the region, can be a threat, and endanger Israel in any way?!?

So what will be your policy toward those Palestinians whose homes you are going to either demolish, or annex, as this flood of settlers comes in, claiming that the West Bank now all belongs exclusively to Israel and its Jewish settlers?!?

Will you have the IDF shooting them down, like fish in a barrel, should they refuse to go quietly, even the kids and toddlers?!? Do you intend to make this a "blood bath event"?? Or maybe you'll stream it, live, on an Israeli "pay for view" channel, so your voters can watch and listen?!?

I would politely suggest, Mr. Prime Minister, that the optics of such a slaughter will make your country the despised pariah in the world, and a country with which the world absolutely doesn't want to have to deal.

You and your brother and sister Israelis may see a BDS movement so intensely engineered, that there is no escape from it, and those who sell merchandise or services outside of Israel, will be clogging up the phones at the Knesset, with their anger.

Kept in the dark: ‘Novichok’ poisoning survivor tells Russian ambassador he got NO info from UK govt

Amesbury Novichok incident survivor Charlie Rowley has met with Russia’s Ambassador in London seeking answers, after the UK authorities kept him in the dark about any official details of the poisoning saga for nearly a year.

“Most of the information they have, they had read in the newspapers. And I got the impression that both the family of Dawn Sturgess and that of Charlie Rowley have not been adequately informed as to what happened to the pair in Amesbury and what happened in Salisbury before,” Ambassador Alexander Yakovenko said after the meeting with Rowley.

Germany brings home 'Islamic State' children from Iraq

Germany has started repatriating the children of jailed "Islamic State" fighters from conflict zones the Middle East. European countries are grappling with how to handle returning foreign fighters and their families.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is an amazing kind thing for Germany to be doing; it's not the kids' fault that their dads decided to "make war" in the name of their faith.

I would, however, rather that faiths around the world find a way to make a path for understand, kindness, and empathy; because at the center of almost all faiths, if they are to be taken seriously, have those elements deep within their core set of beliefs.

OPERATION GLADIO: THE UNHOLY ALLIANCE BETWEEN THE VATICAN, THE CIA, & THE MAFIA

On the hot summer morning of Aug. 2, 1980 a massive explosion ripped apart the main waiting room of the Bologna railway station. Eighty-five people were killed and hundreds more injured. Though at first blamed on Italy’s legendary urban guerrillas, The Red Brigades, it soon emerged that the attack had, in fact, originated from within the ‘deep state’ of the Italian government itself.

‘We did not expect the world to be silent’: US continuing to kill civilians with impunity

The Trump administration, which made promises to rein in Washington’s unnecessary wars, has not only expanded the US’ covert and lethal drone program, but has taken the covering up of its civilian death toll to a whole new level.
Like most of the battlefields opened more widely under the Obama administration, Donald Trump ramped up airstrikes against the infamous Al-Shabaab terrorist group in Somalia approximately two years ago. And, like most drone wars expanded under Obama and dramatically widened under Trump, the details of this covert assault are continuously swept under the rug, particularly when it comes to civilian casualties.

The Pentagon has openly said that its airstrikes in Somalia have killed zero civilians.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

(Sigh) why is it, in American National elections, the voting public gets its alleged "choice" between two evils, which means, you have no choice but voting for who you think is the lesser evil?

This is a real problem for voting, intelligent citizens who want to have their voices heard in DC, and get a better deal for themselves in terms of opportunities and work.

But by the time our Presidential candidates get vetted by the military industrial complex; major multinational corporations; and various civil and religious organizations, we can expect only one series of outcomes; more wars; more destruction of our infrastructure; more dumbing down of our kids with an "educational system" that fails its students; and more taxes which never come back to us in goods and services.

It doesn't matter who we vote for; the American deep state has always had its imperious sway, with both domestic and foreign policies.

Right now, I feel like I'm living in Terry Gilliam's "Brazil" (a marvellous metaphor for the state of far too many Americans in 2019), where lodging is ramshackle; no individual thinking is allowed; and torture is completely, and openly embraced by a dictatorship, as a way of keeping people "controlled."

And if you haven't seen it, please get "the Director's Cut; this is utterly brilliant.

Islamabad Has 'Reliable Intel' India Readying New Attack on Pakistan

This comes a day after Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan slammed India’s governing Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for purportedly trying to use false claims of Pakistan using an F-16 in the February dogfight between the two countries to promote “war hysteria”.

Pakistani Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi has claimed that he has “reliable intelligence that India is planning a new attack on Pakistan” which may take place between 16 and 20 April.

“I am saying it with responsibility and I have a responsible position, I know each word I say would make headlines in the international press”, Qureshi said.

He added that New Delhi’s planned attack aims to “increase diplomatic pressure against Pakistan." India’s Foreign Ministry is yet to comment on the matter.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would implore a couple of "adults in the room" (ladies and gentlemen, who know who you are) to please start working the phones on this, and see if might be possible for the tensions to ratcheted down here, in a deal to create, and foster, peace, and good business relationships between both countries.

Both are nuclear armed countries, and this could escalate completely out of control, if leadership in neither country wants to take a responsible stand toward a greater peace in the region.

One has to wonder; to where were these troops evacuated from Libya, headed?!? And here is some more current coverage, dateline today:

And here is a final update, from sputnik.com:

Situation in Libya Amid Haftar's Army Air Operation Over Tripoli

The article goes on to state:

"Tensions in war-torn Libya have escalated since 4 April, after the Libyan National Army, led by Khalifa Haftar, started an offensive aimed at seizing Tripoli from the UN-recognised government. While making its way to Tripoli, the LNA captured several settlements; at the same time, the GNA's prime minister ordered troops to use force if necessary.

On Sunday, the Libyan National Army (LNA) commenced an aerial bombardment of the Libyan capital Tripoli, a top Libyan military source told Sputnik."

Folks, my heart is praying for the people of Libya, who just are desperately get out of harm's way, and just find in a place where they, and their families can just be safe, even for a little while.

"It Belongs To The People, Not The Bankers" - Italy Moves To Seize Gold From Central Bank

Two weeks ago, somewhat out of the blue, ECB President Mario Draghi issued an odd statement confirming that the European Central Bank needs to approve any operation in the foreign reserves of euro zone countries, including gold and large foreign currency holdings.

“The ECB shall approve both the operations in foreign reserve assets remaining with the NCBs (national central banks)...and Member States’ transactions with their foreign exchange working balances above a certain threshold,”

“The purpose of this competence is to ensure consistency with the exchange rate and monetary policy of the Union.”

Specifically, Draghi made this statement to two Italian members of the European Parliament.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Look for Italy's economic freefall, and soon; the Italian Central bankers will do anything - and I mean, anything, to retain Italy's gold.

Saudi Arabia has gone nuclear, threatening the petrodollar. Or has it?

The report from Zerohedge via Reuters that Saudi Arabia is angry with the U.S. for considering a bill exposing OPEC to U.S. antitrust law is a trial balloon.

The chances of the U.S. bill known as NOPEC coming into force are slim and Saudi Arabia would be unlikely to follow through, but the fact Riyadh is considering such a drastic step is a sign of the kingdom’s annoyance about potential U.S. legal challenges to OPEC.

If these things are so unlikely then why make the threat public? There are a number of reasons.

First, one must remember that the Saudis are hemorrhaging money. Their primary budget deficit in 2018 was around 7% of GDP. Since the 2014 crash in oil prices it has gone from almost zero sovereign debt to $180 billion in debt to finance its spending, or around 22% of GDP.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I think that the US needs to tread very carefully at the moment, concerning oil and pricing issues,, and for Saudi Arabia's military not having to have been able to, finally, completely occupy Yemen, even with US military assistance here.

Lawmakers Urge Trump Not to Veto Yemen War Powers Challenge

Letter says Trump has opportunity to restore cooperation with Congress.

A bipartisan group of lawmakers from both the Senate and the House have issued a letter to President Trump urging him not to veto the SJ Res 7 War Powers Act challenge to the Yemen War. The resolution passed the Senate last month, and the House on Thursday.

The War Powers Act requires the president to get the approval of Congress for any overseas military conflicts, and allows Congress to demand a withdrawal form those nations if the operation is unauthorized. The Yemen War was never authorized by Congress.

President Trump has threatened to veto the resolution, and the letter urges him not to, arguing that he has an historic opportunity to set a precedent for cooperation with Congress by complying with the law and ending an unconstitutional war that was launched under President Obama.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I absolutely agree with these bipartisan members of Congress; unfortunately, because there is still so much "bromance and pull" between Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman, also know in Yemen as "The Butcher of Yemen", and President Trump, I would be amazingly surprised if he did not veto.

But what has happened in Yemen, for the last 3 years, is a level of butchery and genocide against the Yemeni people, that it definitely comes up to the standar of US-abetted Saudi war crimes in Yemen.

I actually never wanted to be a citizen of a country which commits war crimes; and here I am, nearly 70, and watching the madness of the last several administrations, from Bush II to President Trump, operating very overtly; with impunity; and with no question as to whether these actions are morally right, or morally repugnant.

The steps of the pattern emerge very clearly, if you are looking for them.

First, we see demonizations of countries with the resources the US wants; then the regime change of demonized leadership happens; the then, there is an "anointing " of a US-centric leader or leaders; and finally, the assignment of US- centric companies to expropriate those resources; and sell them only for American dollars.

When Karl Marx made the observation that all wars are economic in their origins, the guy was absolutely correct.

And again, I find it very interesting, that President Trump's BBFs in the Middle East, are the Butcher of Gaza, Israel's Bibi Netanyahu, and Crown Prince bin Salman,the Butcher of Yemen.

The Libyan National Army under the command of Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar declared on Saturday a no-fly zone for combat aircraft in the country’s western part, where it is mounting an offensive against Tripoli, the Al Arabiya TV channel reported citing the military.

"The Libyan army declares the western region of the country a military operation zone and imposes a ban on combat aircraft flights in the area," the military said in a communique. "We will carry out strikes against any airports in the west from where sorties are made.".

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Haftar is completely unambiguous; he has warned countries, like the US, and Pan-national military entities, like NATO, and the UN, NOT to do something stupid.

The following article appeared in guardian.co.uk, yesterday: UN Expresses deep concern for Libya as Haftar closes in on Tripoli

Are you telling me that, 8 years after the assassination of Muammar Ghadaffi, which has resulted in horrific civil wars, with slaves bought and sold in this country 'It Was As if We Weren’t Human.' Inside the Modern Slave Trade Trapping African Migrants, is THIS is the bloody best the impotent UN can state?!?

No matter what the US government says, it is laser-focused on Libya's oil wealth, and how to control it,and insure that it is only sold for US dollars.

If they think Haftar negotiable on the issue, they may well side with him; if they do not, look for another flash-point in Africa to heat up, and massively soon.

War and Economy; the battle for Libya's oil.

There is a real risk that Haftar's military will do battle with local, UN-sponsored militias, as reported yesterday at aljazeera.com:

Libya: High alert in Tripoli after renegade leader orders advance

As reported at Sputnik, there is supposed to be an "urgent meeting" on Libya this coming Friday, 12 April; UN will have an "urgent" meeting on Lybia Friday 12 April

IF these people choose not to move the deadline up, and quickly (like perhaps today), Haftar will have control of Tripoli, control of its oil, and control of the country.

Here is an update on the story, yesterday, from bbc:

Clashes erupt as Greek police stop migrants from reaching border

* Migrants head toward border after false rumour goes viral

* Police block access to nearby border crossing

* Buses start taking some people back to housing

* Tens of thousands of migrants, refugees stuck in Greece (Updates with quotes, detail)

By Lefteris Papadimas

DIAVATA, Greece, April 6 (Reuters) - Greek police fired teargas on Saturday as angry migrants hoping to travel to northern Europe hurled stones and bottles after being barred from reaching a nearby border crossing, witnesses said.

Spurred by a false rumour about border openings that spread on social media, hundreds of migrants and refugees arrived and pitched tents on Thursday in a field next to the Diavata migrant camp near Greece's border with North Macedonia.

There were dozens of tents in the field on Saturday and riot police formed a cordon to block an access route, parking 20 buses to stop the migrants from leaving the field. Authorities also sent buses to take people back to housing settlements.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What a damned cruel joke, on both the Greek people, who are suffering the dual blow of austerity, and an unimaginable burden by the sheer number of illegal immigrants with which they are having to deal.

Greece's President Prokopis Pavlopoulos is going to have to solve this; otherwise, we may possibly see a genuine uprising against him, and this policie, which have put Greece in such a terrible bind.

Capital One Says ‘No’ to Democrats Request For Trump Records

As the Attorney General defends his summary of Mueller Report, democrats keep digging finding new ways to increase scrutiny on President Trump. This time they are targeting his bank records.

As reported by SaraACarter.com, last month three top House of Representatives democrats, Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD), Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) and Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) requested documentation from Capital One Bank related to the President’s business holdings.

Capital One responded that they are preserving the records but “given the confidentiality obligations we have as a financial institution, including under state and federal law we respectfully request that any production of materials be made pursuant to a subpoena rather than an informal request.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

With the losers of the 2016 election still pathologically incapable of swallowing that bitter pill of their ignominious defeat, they just can't let go.

And right now, to the American people, the Democrats look, and sound like, the Party of NO!!

NO, we will not work for the interests of the people who hired them by electing them!

NO, we will avoid, and not work for any of the end results President Trump wants to see happen, even if they are good for the country; we will do everything possible to poison those efforts, and also focus on his family, to see who is lawfare worthy in it, and do this right up to the 2020 elections.

NO, we do not want any and every border control effort to pass, because we want all illegal aliens voting Democratic, even if that is, at the moment, illegal in all 50 states.

NO, we will NOT stop giving an inordinate amount of money to Israel, because we depend on both the money and the influence from AIPAC to keep getting re-elected.

NO, we have absolutely no plan in place, for 2020, to bring this country into the spirit and energy of being an excellent place to live, work, and raise a family, because when people get angry at wealth inequality, they will vote for us, because we always promise them freebies.

NO, we have no plan for making the world more safe, less crazed, and to hold countries accountable for their wars and weapons use. We are bought and paid for, as good corporate and national "assets", to promote the legislation corporations and foreign countries they want, which may not at all be good for You the People.

Tom Perez, I am personally holding you responsible for delivering a candidate who will turn the Democratic party back into the party of We the People, not of Those, the Privileged; and please, this election, do not let the nomination be politically repressed or stolen from someone who COULD have won it for you, like Bernie Sanders.

I, too, and very frustrated with this President, who sounded great on the campaign trail, but has proven to be an utter card-carrying failure, in his inability to deliver on so much of what he was telling us he would do for this country.

Tom, in 2020, you, and the DNC have to do better on this. Please do not, again, offer us a candidate with more baggage than Kim Kardashian has on a photo shoot!

And you had damned well better start the process right the hell now.

You, and the DNC, really need to be listening to people like us, even if some times you really hate what we have to tell you, because if you do not, 2020 will wind up a repeat of 2016.

And hey, I'm no Nostradamus; but I am sensing a real, and mushrooming anger, by people who have been loyal to the DNC over time, but felt utterly betrayed at your and Debbie Wasserman Schultz, having "decided" that Hillary HAD to be the candidate for 2016, so you, collectively, and in fact, stole the nomination from Bernie Sanders.

“CORPORATE HOMICIDE”: RALPH NADER DEMANDS BOEING RECALL JETS AFTER ETHIOPIA CRASH KILLS HIS NIECE

A wrongful death case was filed against Boeing on the same day that a preliminary investigation into last month’s Ethiopian Airlines crash revealed damning details about the aircraft manufacturer and raised new questions about whether it gave pilots proper instructions for navigating new software. The findings were released Thursday in Ethiopia, based on the analysis of a team of 18 investigators, less than a month after the Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 crash killed all 157 people on board.

The report found similarities in the technical issues experienced by pilots on both the Ethiopian Airlines flight and October’s Indonesian Lion Air Flight 610, which also crashed just minutes after takeoff, killing all 189 people on board. Both flights were on a Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Look for a series of class action lawsuits which will make Boeing reel, financially; but they brought it on themselves, by taking risky shortcuts which could (and did) destroy people's lives in these two crashes so I have utterly no sympathy for them.

A TOP PROGRESSIVE CONSULTING FIRM IS DOING PR FOR AN ISRAELI SPY COMPANY

A PROMINENT POLITICAL communications shop that works on Democratic campaigns, employs Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton campaign alums, and boasts of its role in the fight for gun control and LGBT equality is representing an Israeli firm notorious for selling powerful surveillance technology to authoritarian governments around the world.

NSO Group, which is facing multiple lawsuits charging that its technology was used to spy on journalists and dissidents, hired SKDKnickerbocker to help with media inquiries as the spy firm tries to turn around its marred image.

The hiring, which was first reported by FastCompany, is the latest example of how SKDKnickerbocker is anything but progressive, despite the way it markets itself.

ECUADOR BACKS DOWN: FOREIGN MINISTRY SAYS IT HAS 'NO PLANS' TO EXPEL ASSANGE

As dozens of supporters massed outside its London embassy, Ecuadorian officials late Friday denied reports that they had been planning to unilaterally revoke the asylum first granted to Wikileaks founder Julian Assange in 2012, expelling the controversial journalist from their London embassy and handing him over to British police for arrest on charges that he skipped out on his bail - which would have likely set in motion a chain of events ending with Assange's extradition to the US.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is a "thank God" moment, for people who value the concept that the US government has the right to lie to the American people, or anyone else; Assange is not out of the woods yet, but at least, for the moment, he is out of immediate danger.

CONGRESS BLASTS LABOR SECRETARY FOR LETTING BILLIONAIRE CHILD TRAFFICKING PEDOPHILE "ON THE LOOSE"

On Wednesday, Secretary of Labor Alexander Acosta appeared before a budget appropriations subcommittee to testify about the effectiveness of the Labor Department’s 2020 budget which calls for a 10 percent cut in programs affecting millions of workers. When it came time for Acosta to testify whether or not he could safeguard children from illegal labor practices and combat human trafficking, multiple lawmakers grilled him over the sweetheart deal he gave convicted billionaire pedophile Jeffery Epstein who is also suspected of running a massive child sex trafficking ring.

During the testimony, Acosta defended his cuts to multiple programs, noting that the new budget provides “greater investment in programs that work, eliminates programs that do not, and generally bolsters opportunities for working Americans through common-sense reforms.’’

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am frankly glad that this got brought up: Acosta should have thrown the guy into jail for a long, long time for what he did; of course, in those levels of society, the rich and monied rarely "eat" their own.

A society should, in some light, be judged by how it treats the most vulnerable of its members; and children are always among the most vulnerable.

A society which enables the grooming of underage kids for pedophiles, is a sick society, and there are no two ways around this.

And right now, for those monied and elite, who flout both the law, and have no moral compass whatsoever, the who concept of "justice", has devolved into "Just US!!!"

News media get it wrong on the Golan Heights

When the New York Times (3/26/19) reported on Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s fait accompli pronouncement that nation-states can now seize territories acquired in defensive wars—after President Donald Trump announced via tweet that the United States asserts Israeli sovereignty over the Syrian Golan Heights—it seriously misled readers on the status of Israel’s illegal settlements on the occupied territories of the West Bank and the Golan Heights.

While the Washington Post’s report (3/26/19) on Netanyahu’s pronouncement made it clear that UN Security Council Resolution 497 in 1981 condemned Israel’s formal takeover of the Golan Heights as “null and void and without international legal effect,” the Times report, by David Halbfinger and Isabel Kershner, obscures the illegality of Israeli settlements by attempting to make “practical and legal distinctions” between the settlements in the West Bank and the Golan Heights.

When Senator Robert Kennedy was assassinated on June 5, 1968, the American public fell into an hypnotic trance in which they have remained ever since. The overwhelming majority accepted what was presented by government authorities as an open and shut case that a young Palestinian American, Sirhan Sirhan, had murdered RFK because of his support for Israel, a false accusation whose ramifications echo down the years. That this was patently untrue and was contradicted by overwhelming evidence made no difference.

BMW faces $1.6 billion fine over antitrust claim

BMW AG said it's likely to take a charge exceeding €1 billion ($1.6b) related to the European Union's investigation into German automakers allegedly colluding to delay the rollout of cleaner-emission cars.

The provision will drag on first-quarter financial results and reduce automotive profit margin this year to as low as 4.5 per cent, according to a Friday statement. BMW said it's contesting the allegations "with all legal means," but that it's probable the European Commission will issue a significant fine.

US must choose between Turkey and terrorists’: Ankara slaps Pence with counter-ultimatum

Turkey’s vice president said his US counterpart must choose between an alliance with a loyal NATO partner or siding with terrorists, after Mike Pence issued an ultimatum for Ankara to pick its F-35 jets over Russian S-400 systems.
“The United States must choose. Does it want to remain Turkey’s ally or risk our friendship by joining forces with terrorists to undermine its NATO ally’s defense against its enemies?” Vice President Fuat Oktay tweeted, in response to Mike Pence’s demands.

The Turkish official did not make clear what “terrorists” he was talking about. Ankara is at odds with Washington over the military support it provides to Syrian Kurdish militias which are designated as terrorist organizations in Turkey.

That aside, self-exiled Turkish cleric Fethullah Gulen, whose entity Turkey accuses of plotting the 2016 coup attempt, has found a safe haven in the US which also poisons relations between the two NATO allies.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It appears that Pence has fully accepted his position as the Vice"merchant of death in Chief", when it comes to hawking US weapons systems other countries really don't want to buy.

But that he threatened Turkey in this very public way, is not going to get him any favors from Turkey, which may be thinking seriously about resigning their NATO membership, and that really poses a problem for NATO.

Because of it bordering both Europe and Central Asia, straddling the Black Sea and Mediterranean Seas, along with bordering Bulgaria; Iran; Syria; Cypress; Armenia and Georgia, Turkey is strategically vital to NATO's operations.

And I have to wonder; after a not so lustrous showing in Turkey's general elections, will NATO decide that Turkey needs a "regime change"?!? Were I Edrogan, I would want to think about this very, very carefully.

You elected them to write new laws. They’re letting corporations do it instead.

ach year, state lawmakers across the U.S. introduce thousands of bills dreamed up and written by corporations, industry groups and think tanks.

Disguised as the work of lawmakers, these so-called “model” bills get copied in one state Capitol after another, quietly advancing the agenda of the people who write them.

A two-year investigation by USA TODAY, The Arizona Republic? and the Center for Public Integrity reveals for the first time the extent to which special interests have infiltrated state legislatures using model legislation.

USA TODAY and the Republic found at least 10,000 bills almost entirely copied from model legislation were introduced nationwide in the past eight years, and more than 2,100 of those bills were signed into law.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Let's face it, America's alleged "legislators" are simply bought and paid for by the corporations, which is why laws generally tend to favor them, rather than We the People.

How can this be prevented?!? For one, we need a straightforward, honest election system, with manual ballots substituted for electronic voting machines, which are, sadly universally breakable, in term of having the capability to shift votes from one candidate to another.

Secondly (and I know that this won't happen before pigs become aware that they are aerodynamic), no corporate money should be allowed in any campaign, because this gives strength and legitimacy to this fraudulent, corporate-purchased legislation.

Netanyahu, Israel's 'King Bibi', in quest for fifth term

Jerusalem (AFP) - Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's long domination of Israeli politics has earned him the nickname "King Bibi" but he now faces the twin risks of a strong political challenger in an April 9 election and possible indictment for corruption.

Should he win again for a fifth term in office, Netanyahu will be on track to surpass Israel's founding father David Ben-Gurion's record of more than 13 years in office.

But opinion polls show Netanyahu's right-wing Likud locked in a close battle with a centrist alliance led by former armed forces chief of staff Benny Gantz.

The attorney general has announced his intention to indict Netanyahu on fraud, bribery and breach of trust charges pending a hearing, which will be held after the election.

Netanyahu is not legally required to resign if indicted, only if convicted with all appeals exhausted, but political pressure would likely be intense.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Should Netanyahu get re-elected, this is bad news for Israelis, Palestinians, and the world in general.

These corruption charges are not going away, no matter how Netenyahu tries to minimize them as "a misunderstanding".

He is now a cornered, politically wounded animal; and both people, and animals are at their nastiest when they are both cornered, and wounded.

Today is 5 April; the Israeli General Elections are this Tuesday, 9 April.

I wonder just what kind of a stunt he will pull, to try to create in a "further misdirection " away from those charges. And heaven knows, there are opportunities abounding in terms of what he might do, like a strike into Syria; the re-taking of Gaza at gunpoint; or an invasion of Lebanon.

Just color me very concerned about this coming weekend, and what he may try to do to get the Israeli voting public, voting for him, rather than Gantz.

How Rachel Maddow Turned Into Infowars

Though she doesn’t often bring it up these days, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow remembers how the media abetted the Bush administration’s lies justifying the 2003 Iraq invasion. That was when elite (in many cases handpicked) journalists spent months serving as stenographers for the push to war, parroting every carefully crafted leak without question. They dismissed skeptics as disloyal and spiked stories that would have raised questions about the narrative. When they got caught, they declared “never again.”

Yet with Rachel Maddow as their poster child (along with David Corn, Luke Harding, Chris Hayes, the entire staff at CNN, and hundreds more), journalists over the last two years repeated every mistake their predecessors had made in 2003.

Libyan strongman Haftar orders troops to move on Tripoli

Eastern Libyan commander Khalifa Haftar has ordered his troops to move on the capital Tripoli, seat of the UN-backed government of Prime Minister Fayez al-Sarraj.
In an audio address broadcast to his troops and published on Facebook, Haftar ordered all army units to “advance to Tripoli,” and free the capital from “militias and terrorists.” The Thursday address came hours after Haftar’s forces captured the town of Gharyan, 100km south of the capital.

Haftar also vowed to protect foreigners, civilians and those surrendering to his troops, promising to ensure their “safety and security.”

Drone-filmed footage shows scores of Haftar's Libyan National Army (NLA) vehicles en route to the capital, most of them machine-gun-armed 'technicals.'

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Looks like the US-ordered assassination of Gaddafi, has caused this country to spin completely out of control, much to the US government's embarrassment.

So what are they going to do with Khalifa Haftar, order an "Assassination 2.0" on the guy?!?

Liberal Dark Money Group to Receive Private Briefing From House Dem Jerrold Nadler

Democracy Alliance holds private gathering at luxury Austin hotel, plots nearly $300 million in new political spending.

AUSTIN—The largest donors on the left will be given a private briefing on investigations into President Donald Trump by House Judiciary Committee chairman Jerrold Nadler (N.Y.) during a secretive Texas gathering this week, according to documents obtained exclusively by the Washington Free Beacon.

The Democracy Alliance, a group of millionaire and billionaire funders of the liberal movement, is holding its Spring Partner Retreat and Strategy Conference at the Four Seasons hotel in Austin, where security has been patrolling the meeting areas since Wednesday. As always at the group's secretive meetings, all programming is off the record and closed to members of the media.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What is next, Judiciary Chair Nadler, is for the Dementocrats deciding to do something constructive for the people who elected you into office.

You have the job sir, that's what your constituents hired you to do; now, let's see a little delivery for those you represent, rather than this horrific plunge into toxic, "Gotcha!" politics!!

AUSSIE SENATE RUSHES THRU BILL THAT WOULD FINE SOCIAL MEDIA COMPANIES FOR NOT TAKING DOWN 'ABHORRENT' CONTENT FAST ENOUGH

Following the Christchurch mosque shooting, the New Zealand government swiftly declared footage and photos of the shooting illegal and started rounding up citizens who violated the censorship body's new declaration. The government of its closest neighbor has responded to the tragedy in a similar fashion, outlawing the sharing of "abhorrent violent material."

Tragedies make for bad laws. And Australia -- while relatively short on tragedy -- has been crafting some supremely bad laws lately. The national security flag was waved around a bit to justify encryption-breaking mandates. Now, the government has rushed through a bill targeting content like the Christchurch shooter's livestream of his violent act.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I'm sorry; but how will this law define "not taking down quickly enough", in a moment when the horrific images are live-streamed?!?

My deepest sympathies for those who got killed or maimed in this brutal assassination; but there is something about this which just doesn't pass the
smell test for me, and I am not quite sure what.

But here is a companion piece about this legislation:

After Christchurch shooting, Australia doubles-down on being stampeded into catastrophically stupid legislation.

CHINESE CITY OFFERS REWARD FOR RATTING ON CHRISTIANS AND OTHER “ILLEGAL” RELIGIOUS FOLK

As China continues its efforts to eradicate Christianity and other faiths, Communist Party officials in Guangzhou (shown), the capital of China’s Guangdong province, are offering a reward to residents who can provide information about underground churches, secret Christians, and others involved in unsanctioned religious activity.

Guangzhou’s Department of Ethnic and Religious Affairs recently announced on its website that it would pay up to 10,000 Chinese yuan (around $1,500) for information leading to the apprehension of unsanctioned religious leaders. That amounts to about two months’ salary for the average resident. Officials are offering smaller rewards for information about churches and other religious meeting places built or used without permission from authorities. Informers can also cash in for ratting on people who incite “religious extremism,” says the website.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It looks like Chinese authorities are creating an absolutely Orwellian nightmare on steroids for its people, with this "ratting out" your neighbors and your friends for thinking non-conformist thoughts, or having any religious beliefs whatsoever.

MAJOR VULNERABILITY POTENTIALLY IMPACTED 150 MILLION SMARTPHONE USERS WORLDWIDE

Researchers have discovered multiple vulnerabilities in a pre-installed app on phones made by one of the world’s biggest smartphone vendors that potentially impacted the privacy and security of more than 150 million Android users worldwide.

According to security researchers at Check Point Research, the vulnerabilities were found in an app pre-installed on smartphones made by Xiaomi, the biggest mobile phone manufacturer in China and India, and the fourth biggest by market share in the world.

The app in question was a self-proclaimed security app dubbed “Guard Provider,” which promised to protect Xiaomi users from malware. But Check Point found that the app’s failure to encrypt virus database updates opened Xiaomi users to man in the middle attacks (MiTM) when users connected to public WiFi hotspots.

What Greece And Venezuela Can Teach Us About Minimum Wage Laws

By Jon Miltimore

States across America are increasing the minimum wage. This is bad policy for numerous reasons, but the movement nonetheless appears to be gaining steam.

Eighteen states began 2019 with new minimum wage laws. Several more passed legislation in 2019, including Maryland, where legislators overrode a veto to pass a $15 minimum wage. McDonald’s, perhaps reading the landscape, recently announced it will no longer lobby against mandated increases in workers’ pay.

The reasons for this aren’t hard to divine. Minimum wage increases are lousy policy—violating the rights of employers and workers while denying the most vulnerable in society the dignity of work—but they are great politics...

US DENIES VISA TO ICC CHIEF PROSECUTOR, UNHAPPY WITH HER PROBING AMERICAN WAR CRIMES IN AFGHANISTAN

Washington has annulled the entry visa of Fatou Bensouda, chief prosecutor of the International Criminal Court, after the State Department vowed to shield Americans from “unjust prosecutions” of possible war crimes in Afghanistan.

“We can confirm that the US authorities have revoked the prosecutor’s visa for entry into the US,” Bensouda’s office told Reuters in an email. However, the move should not restrict her travels to the UN headquarters in New York City.

Over the last two years, the Gambian lawyer has been probing US-led war crimes in Afghanistan but has not yet opened a formal investigation into alleged atrocities conducted over the last 18 years. For now, the preliminary inquiry remains in Pre-Trial Chamber, even though Bensouda found a “reasonable basis to believe that war crimes and crimes against humanity have been committed in connection with the armed conflict in Afghanistan.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is a link to this lady's CV: Fatou Bensouda, Judge at the International Criminal Court

So, IF everything we have been doing in Afghanistan was moral, stable, and the us military are not killing people indiscriminately, what the hell is Pompeo afraid of?!?

The reality on the ground here, must be pretty horrific, for him to deny this lady a visa.

When I was a kid growing up, I read about how the USA was the greatest country in the world; but when I got into Junior College, I had to revise what I thought about this country; I got ... awakened, at that point.

Many of my young friends wound up in Vietnam, as "cannon fodder" for this insane and immoral war, which allowed a lot of military equipment get "eaten up", so the military industrial complex could sell our military more stuff.

Many of those friends didn't make it back, or emotionally, didn't make it all the way back; one, in fact, committed suicide when he got back to the States.

Pompeo's refusal to grant this lady a visa, is pretty condemning evidence, that much of what she thought had happened in Afghanistan, but didn't quite have the evidence for, is damningly true.

And what else is damningly true, is that the United States of America, has devolved into "the land of the cowed... and the home of the surveilled."

The US has become "War Crimes R Us", as indicated by the US moves against Afghanistan; Iraq; Libya; Somalia, Yemen, and more recently, Venezuela.

All those who are now citizens of the Unhinged, Surveilled State of America, are citizens of a country which commits war crimes with impunity.

I don't know how that makes you feel, when this realization hits; but frankly, from my perspective, it really ... bites.

As a kid, I never believed that the US could create the amount of mayhem and destruction internationally that it has; now, I know better.

So, what do we do?!?

Violence is never the answer, and those in our military and beyond, will most probably obey their orders, when told to "exterminate American citizens with extreme prejudice."

We need to have a peaceful, honest conversation with each other, and those who allegedly represent us in Congress.

We tell them, logically, and rationally, how these wars are killing our economy, and preventing this country from improving its infrastructure, which is crumbling as I type this.

And we tell them, gently, that we will be looking, very analytically, at their voting records, when it comes to war-related issues, and if they are incapable of pulling away from the warmongers, the next time they are up for re-election, they will not win it.

At the end of the day, these are the only choices we have left right now; but we have to exercise them collectively, or the US government will just brush us off.

TSA PLANS TO PUT NEW LYING SIGNS IN AIRPORTS

According to a press release issued today by the Transportation Security Administration, the TSA plans to start posting signs as shown above in airports throughout the USA, claiming that “ID Requirements Are Changing” and that “Beginning Beginning October 1, 2020, you will need a REAL ID compliant license or another acceptable form of ID, such
as a valid passport or U.S. military ID, to fly within the U.S.”

According to today’s TSA press release:

REAL ID-compliant licenses or other acceptable forms of ID, such as a valid passport, federal government PIV card or U.S. military ID, will be mandatory for air travel beginning on October 1, 2020. Critically important, on October 1, 2020, individuals who are unable to verify their identity will not be permitted to enter the TSA checkpoint and will not be allowed to fly.

These signs and this and similar press releases are lies.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As some of you may know, my late Dad, Spencer, was an aircraft instrument mechanic, with whom his employer always had what I would describe as a "love/hate relationship", because dad NEVER signed off on the air-worthiness of an instrument before it went back on a plane, unless the instrument calibrated out perfectly.

That meant that the place's departure would be delayed, which infuriated his employer,but Spencer wanted to make sure that every instrument on which he signed off, was perfect.

When I was a kid, I used to love to fly, because I believed that every aircraft instrument mechanic took his job as seriously as did my Dad.

But since the TSA got its talons around air travel, I absolutely dread it.

Terrorist, me?!? NO ONE in their right mind would ever have that opinion of me, if they got to know me.

As a Christian pacifist activist I want to see the ending of wars as a means of settling international disputes, not more of them, thank you very much.

But this has been a paradigm shift in American culture, that when one travels, one is presumed "guilty until proven innocent", harking back to Code Napoleon.

As a thinking Christian, and someone who cares about the future trajectory of both US foreign and domestic policies, I abhor this shift in American values.

SECRET DOCUMENT REVEALS PLANS FOR CIVIL WAR IN LEBANON, ISRAELI FALSE FLAGS, AND INVASION

THE VALIDITY OF THIS DOCUMENT SHOULD BE QUESTIONED. THAT SAID, THE PLAN IS CONSISTENT WITH THE U.S. SOP FOR REGIME CHANGE.

Beirut (GPA) – During his visit with US Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, Lebanese President Michael Aoun reportedly received a US-Israeli document detailing plans for creating a civil war in Lebanon with covert false flag operations and possible Israeli invasion.
n.
Although the source of the document is Israeli and created in partnership with Washington, no one knows who presented it to Aoun. The Lebanese TV station, Al-Jadeed, initially reported the document on Lebanese TV and a video on its website. Geopolitics Alert translated the report for this article.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF, in fact, this is true, it appears to come right out the CIA playbook, and the pattern is painfully clear; demonize the existing government; create regime change; replace that regime with one which is US-centric; and make sure that the assets which the US wants to expropriate are only sold by US-centric companies, and that they are only allowed to be paid for in the US dollar.

Wash; rinse; repeat.

IF true, color me completely unsurprised by this development.

ASSANGE 'WILL BE' ARRESTED IN 'HOURS TO DAYS,' WIKILEAKS SAYS

WikiLeaks has quoted a “high-level” Ecuadorian government source as saying that Julian Assange could be imminently expelled from Ecuador’s London embassy and that Quito has an agreement with the UK to arrest him.

WikiLeaks warned Thursday that its founder “will be expelled within ‘hours to days'” from Ecuador’s London embassy and that Ecuador has an agreement with Britain to have him arrested.

President Lenin Moreno will use the pretext of a scandal engulfing his presidency to oust Assange, a “high level source” in the Ecuador government told WikiLeaks.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When the Brits get Assange, I am quite sure they will hand him over to American authorities, who want to make, probably, a very messy example of what happens to people who tell the truth, but are "an embarrassment" to the Power Structure here in the US.

The CIA Takeover of America in the 1960s is the Story of Our Times

***
The web of deceit surrounding the now officially debunked Democratic led Russia-gate propaganda operation that has strengthened Trump to double-down on his anti-Russia operations (a Democratic goal) is an example of the perfidious and sophisticated mutuality of this game of mass mind-control.

The killing of the Kennedys and today’s new Cold War and war against terror are two ends of a linked intelligence operation.

Moreover, more than any other assassination of the 1960s, it is the killing of Bobby Kennedy that has remained shrouded in the most ignorance.

It is one of the greatest propaganda success stories of American history.

Quack “skeptic” Stephen Barrett exposed as agent provocateur working to discredit natural medicine on Wikipedia

Over the past year, Richard Gale and his team of sleuths from the Progressive Radio Network (PRN) put many hours’ worth of legwork into digging up every detail they could find about Barrett and his fellow anti-truth cronies, as well as their ongoing collusion with Wikipedia. They then compiled what they uncovered into 24 separate investigative stories, unveiling a treasure trove of truth about Big Tech and Big Pharma’s relentless war against natural medicine.

In its piece on Barrett and Wikipedia specifically, PRN revealed that the “skeptics” have basically hijacked editorial control over all of the Wikipedia entries associated with things like chiropractic, acupuncture, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), homeopathy, naturopathy, and many other forms of natural medicine, and altered them with descriptions basically pegging them as unsubstantiated “quackery.”
