Since 9/11, the Government’s Answer to Every Problem Has Been More Government

Every crisis—manufactured or otherwise—since the nation’s early beginnings has become a make-work opportunity for the government to expand its reach and its power at taxpayer expense while limiting our freedoms at every turn.

America’s Choice: Preservation of a Free Republic or Annihilation

We know the carriers of this plague. We see them. The sources of this plague are New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio and New York Governor Andrew Cuomo. In Congress Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, and Adam Schiff are the “Typhoid Mary” source of this plague. Billionaire sources of this plague include George Soros and the tech moguls. And, they have infected others: political leaders of States and towns, who in turn have infected millions of others; many of them among the younger population, turning them into unthinking, raging, ravaging and rampaging zombies; mindlessly attacking people; destroying and defacing monuments; defiling places of worship; demanding obeisance to false gods.

Biden blames Trump for BLM, Antifa violence even though not a single Democrat has condemned this monster created by the left

Though neither he nor anyone else in his party has condemned any of the violence being perpetrated by far-left Black Lives Matter (BLM) and Antifa terrorists, Joe Biden has suddenly decided to spread the message that everything bad currently happening is because of President Donald Trump.

Challenging our public school district’s obedience of county ‘health’ ‘orders’ of mask requirement or face fines and imprisonment (1 of ?)

Below is my email to our NorCal public school district’s designated contact for questions regarding “health” “orders.” Two weeks ago I wrote our teachers’ union leadership with similar questions, and followed-up yesterday as I received no response.

My plan is to politely seek an explanation. Without plausible explanation how masks are within limited government, the alternative explanation seems to be that mask requirement is workplace harassment. Importantly, if Governor Newsom and counties have no lawful authority to enforce dictates to We the People, and insist on orders that any reasonable person would conclude are OBVIOUSLY outside emergency conditions, they are violating Federal Article 18 Section 242: DEPRIVATION OF RIGHTS UNDER COLOR OF LAW:

Navalny Poison

We do not yet know what has happened to Alexei Navalny; he is still in a medically induced coma in a German hospital. If it is poisoning, (and this is far from being certain) it is not clear yet what poison and under what circumstances he consumed it. Yet even so we are just as capable of speculating on what is “highly likely” as Mrs Theresa May, the former British Prime Minister during Skripal Affair. We must look for the usual (and politically convenient) suspects. You know the routine. A Christian baby is missing – it’s “highly likely” a Jew stole him for his nefarious rituals. A nursing mother’s milk goes dry – a witch is “highly likely” to be the problem. An enemy of the Russian authorities has fallen ill – it’s “highly likely” that Putin poisoned him.

Turkey's Erdogan accuses EU of using Greece as 'bait'

Turkish President Recep Tayyip accused European nations of using Greece as "bait" in the Mediterranean Sea confrontation while belittling Athens' military might on Tuesday.

Erdogan, who has threatened Greece with military action, described Turkey's activities in the eastern Mediterranean as the "pursuit of [its] rights and justice" and denounced what he said were Greek efforts to "imprison" Turkey to a small region surrounding its coast.

"Efforts to descend on the riches of the Mediterranean, which are the rights of every country around it, is an example of modern-day colonialism," Erdogan said.

He also accused some nations he did not name of pushing Greece into a confrontation with Turkey.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And NATO - in which both nations are members - does absolutely NOTHING to ratchet down the rhetoric.

Hamas deputy: We’ll give Israel two months to implement ceasefire

Khalil al-Hayya says truce brought $30 million in aid to Gaza, threatens return to violence if Israel doesn’t hold up its side of the deal.

If Israel does not fulfill the terms of the ceasefire agreement with Hamas by the end of two months, there could be another round of escalation of violence on the southern border, a senior official in the Gaza-based terror group, Khalil al-Hayya, said on Tuesday night.

“Our demand is for the occupation to follow all of prior agreements without procrastinating or delay,” al-Hayya said in an interview with official Hamas al-Aqsa TV. “We will give the occupation two months, and we will monitor its behavior in implementing projects and bringing in other projects. They need to implement the projects.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Fingers crossed here, but I am not holding my breath that the cease-fire will actually hold; Israeli political and military history with Hamas doesn't make me hopeful here.

If the Vaccine Comes and You are Still Wearing a Face Mask, You’re in for a World of Pain

Because of the failures of many, a generation ago, in their own lives that allowed security theater to be commonplace in America, all the leftover nonsense of the last twenty years are problems that remain today as temporal and qualitative taxations on daily life. But some people do not comply. Some refuse to lift their hands in the “I surrender” pose.

Why the state seeks to abolish both tradition and history

Today our society is wracked by germinal totalitarians eager to destroy history. Ostensibly this is in the name of justice, but this destruction and historical desecration are little more than a tactic for securing power for themselves. America is supposedly infected on the genetic level with unforgivable sins of racism and oppression and those seeking to destroy history conveniently have the solution: hand over power to them to facilitate our collective reeducation and penance. By failing to recognize the important role that tradition serves by preserving historical consciousness we aid and abet the rise of the forces currently seeking the complete overthrow of our society and the complete annihilation of our traditional rights and liberties.

Defending yourself against BLM and Antifa terrorism makes you a villain, according to the mainstream media

This has pretty much become the M.O. of the mainstream media in the age of “elevating black voices.” No matter what the BLM and Antifa mobs do, whether it involves destruction or violence, it is justified as demonstration of “protest.” And no matter what those being targeted do to try to defend themselves, it is dubbed as “aggression” and “racism.” -- The media, in other words, is complicit in the violent destruction of America at the hands of BLM and Antifa, glorifying its members as “heroes” while decrying patriots as “part of the problem.” Pay close attention to how the narratives are written and see for yourself the way that self-defense is quickly becoming an act of “terrorism” in the eyes of the far-left corporate media.

Oregon State Police Are Back In Portland - And This Time They Will Be Sticking Around

While progressives, anarchists, socialists, agitators and their 'woke' enablers in the mainstream press blame right-wing - or 'white supremacist' - groups like 'Patriot Prayer' for the murder of one of the group's own members, the reality is that Oregon Gov. Kate Brown and Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler left an opening for violence to escalate when they pulled out the state police.

Regular readers may remember that President Trump and Department of Homeland Security acting Secretary Chad Wolf finally withdrew federal troops from Portland after reaching a deal for the State Police to protect a federal courthouse in the city. Soon after, Oregon's leading Democrats pulled the reinforcements. But now that a man has been killed, they're realizing the downside of pandering to unstable anarchists.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have never been more grateful than I am right now about living in rural Indiana, where the term "progressive centrist" is not characterized as an abomination. Family and friends are close, which is a blessing and a God-send. People here are very church-centric, and when exercised with love, kindness, and compassion, is absolutely not a bad thing.

But the thing which shook me, to the core of my being, after this protestor was shot dead, was another anarchist who made the observation "I am not sad that a f---ing fascist died tonight," the woman said to cheers and laughter from the crowd.

"If you're not angry, you're not paying attention," she had said earlier in her speech. "If y'all are not with me, y'all are not paying attention. Everybody needs to realize what's going on in these streets. Our community can hold its own without the police. We can take out the trash on our own."

The woman was referring to the shooting of a member of a pro-Trump organization called Patriot Prayer, which occurred when counterprotesters associated with Black Lives Matter clashed with the rightwing group.

So, assassination of anyone who doesn't absolutely agree with your "method"
is the right thing to do, in your opinion?!?

Can one can be angry, but want to do something creatively positive to address the issues you have, like contribute to the NAACP, or volunteer as a school coach to help a kid who is struggling with reading or math, or volunteer for an after school program to give rootless kids structure after school?!?

Apparently, your answer is, HELL no, Id' rather see that person shot!!

Well, my dear; that makes you a clear and present danger to society; I think, looking at current cultural trends, that Antifa will be declared a domestic terrorist organisation in the not so distant future. But with the violence Antifa supports, as witnessed by this assassination in Portland, you have brought it upon yourselves.

You cannot have a civil society, working together, positively, to address societal ills, torn apart by violence and chaos; the two are mutually exclusive.

American Revolution 2.0 2020: PATRIOTS vs. LOYALISTS: Plandemic as hostile takeover of US Constitution’s limited government to mask, isolate, and shoot/shot a slave race of ‘non-essentials’ (6 of 9)

Joe Biden: I would insist that everybody in public be wearing that mask. Anyone to reopen, it would have to make sure that they walked into a business that had masks.

Reporter: Couldn’t you use your federal leverage to mandate that?

Biden: Yes.

Reporter: Would you?

Biden: Yes, I would from an executive standpoint, yes I would.
~ June 2020 (and here)

“What real leadership looks like is Joe Biden, willing to speak up, sometimes telling us the stuff that we don’t necessarily want to hear but we need to know. And the need for this mandatory mask wearing will also be about what Joe has articulated, and what a Biden/Harris administration will do.” ~ Vice Presidential candidate, Kamala Harris, August 2020

NPR Is Openly Promoting A Book That Celebrates And Encourages Looting

In Defense of Looting: A Riotous History of Uncivil Action is a book by Philadelphia-based Vicky Osterweil that currently sits atop of the Amazon new release charts. The book encourages and makes excuses for property destruction and riots that are currently taking place across the country.

And for that, it was featured and promoted in an NPR article out last week called "One Author's Argument 'In Defense Of Looting'".

But as the Post Millennial puts it: "This book promoting riots is a number one new release on Amazon, a mega-corporation that benefits every time a local shop gets torched."

The book celebrates rioting and looting at a time in the United States where many business owners have seen their life's work go up in flames and innocent civilians have been assaulted or mortally wounded defending their property.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

NPR, the timing and endorsement of this book could not have possibly come at a worse time for this country; but I guess for an organisation which despises both private enterprise, and business success, you consider this a great call, particularly when private businesses are getting looted and burned to the ground.

California To Set Up Task Force To Examine Slavery Reparations

Authored by Rick Moran via PJMedia.com,

The California Assembly will vote before Monday on a state Senate bill that creates a task force to look at the question of slavery reparations. The measure passed the state Senate in a bipartisan vote.

This is a surprise. California was a free state when it entered the Union in 1850 as a result of the Compromise of 1850. But now we’re told there was “chattel slavery” in California.

Well… sorta.

Although California before the Civil War was officially a free state, Mitchell listed legal and judicial steps state officials took at the time to support slavery in Southern states while repressing Blacks.

But what about the fact that white people alive today had nothing to do with slavery?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That last question is a large one to me.

And then there is the question of how these reparations will be dispersed; will it simply be a check, written by the State of California, to individuals, or will it be part of a multi-disciplinary program, offering educational, literacy programs, computer literacy programs, counseling to change life-style issues which may be holding people back?!?

The second approach makes more sense to me, but will that wind up making Black Californians more angry?!? I can't tell you, but there is one thing the state of California will not do; that would be tracking how the reparations money will be spent.

How Should The European Union Respond To Rising Greece-Turkey Tensions?

Authored by Michael Leigh via Bruegel.org,

If the European Union can mediate effectively to resolve current Greek-Turkish tensions over energy in the Eastern Mediterranean, it could also provide an opportunity to tackle more deep-rooted problems.

But so far, the two most powerful EU nations have adopted a ‘good cop, bad cop’ approach that conveys different and confusing messages – and has not prevented escalation. Chancellor Angela Merkel, with the added authority of holding the EU’s six-month revolving presidency, has launched a German initiative to prevent escalation, reduce tensions and overcome longstanding conflicts. But French President Emmanuel Macron, while not eschewing mediation, has opted for a show of force, sending French naval vessels into disputed waters to counter the presence of Turkish warships.

Deep-rooted dispute
The dispute is ostensibly over ownership of offshore gas deposits and the delimitation of 200-mile exclusive economic zones (EEZs).

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And BTW, where the hell is NATO as all of this enmity plays out between Greece and Turkey, two brother NATO countries?!?

If NATO is impotent to unwind this, which means potential war in the region, it should disband, because it has proven useless, toothless, and suffering from organisational systemic rot.

Trump Kept 'Alarming Reports' About Coronavirus Crisis Private, House Report Says

Democrats are accusing the Trump Administration of suppressing alarming reports from state and federal health officials that painted a true but grim picture of the COVID-19 pandemic over the summer when the disease resurged.

On Monday, the House Select Subcommittee on Coronavirus led by Democrats published eight weeks of COVID-19 confidential reports from individual states prepared by the White House coronavirus task force and regularly shared to governors. Each report details key data such as confirmed cases, testing, positivity rates and hospitalizations for every state.

Based on regularly updated information, the reports directly contradict optimistic pronouncements by President Donald Trump and his officials, who painted a far rosier picture of the true state of the pandemic than the reports revealed. The subcommittee said the confidential documents prove the Trump Administration acted to willfully cover-up public health risks for political gain.

'Shoot On-Site': Chicago Gangs Form Pact To Execute Cops Who Draw Weapons On Suspects, Says FBI

The FBI has warned Chicago-area law enforcement that nearly three-dozen street gangs "have formed a pact to 'shoot on-site any cop that has a weapon drawn on any subject in public'," reports ABC7.

According to an August 26 'situation information report' from Chicago-based FBI officials, "members of these gang factions have been actively searching for, and filming, police officers in performance of their official duties. The purpose of which is to catch on film an officer drawing his/her weapon on any subject and the subsequent 'shoot on-site' of said officer, in order to garner national media attention."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF, in fact, these reports are true, you are going to see Chicago law enforcement officers vote with their feet, and get jobs elsewhere; retire early; and leave the city in even a worse mess that previously believed imaginable.

Advance NZ vaccination video a 'blatant doctoring' and 'misleading' (Not True)

Parliament's Privileges Committee has backed Speaker Trevor Mallard and his ruling for Advance New Zealand to take down a political video from its social media channels about Covid-19 vaccinations.

But the party is defying the ruling and the video, which falsely claims that Labour will force people to be vaccinated, remained on its Facebook page this afternoon.

And the party is unlikely to face any consequences before the election because Parliament dissolves next Sunday, leaving too narrow a timeframe for the committee to penalise the party.

WHO warns easing restrictions early is a 'recipe for disaster'

Australians are sick of lockdowns and eager to return to normal life, but easing restrictions too soon would a disaster, they've been warned.

The World Health Organisation has issued a stark warning about easing Covid-19 restrictions too early as many countries, including Australia, are dealing with deadly second waves of the virus.

WHO director-general Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said he understood people were tired of being in lockdown, but warned rushing to open the economy was a "recipe for disaster" if coronavirus transmission wasn't under control.

Political Elite Value Their Own Safety, NOT YOURS

Through their actions, these politicians have made clear that they are willing to sacrifice the safety of their constituents, but are unwilling to compromise their personal safety in the process.

The Aim of Social Justice Movement is Subversion of Core Western Values

Free expression and free speech are, of course, not the only core Western values that have come under attack from the progressives. Others include the concept of private property, the idea of equal rights and equality before the law among others. Like their tyrannical predecessors, social justice warriors of today are not interested in constructively addressing the real problems in the society in which they live. Carried along by a destructive instinct, they want to bring down their society. Most of them have no clear conception of what should replace it. What they know, however, is that they want nothing to do with the principles of free speech, tolerance of dissent, respect for private property, etc., on which free and affluent societies are built. The main problem with this approach is that societies not based on these values are not good places to live. Just ask the people of Stalin’s Soviet Union, Hitler’s Nazi Germany, Kim’s North Korea, Castro’s Cuba or Pol Pot’s Cambodia.

These People Want to Convince Everyone That Looting Is A-Okay

What happens when more business owners decide that if the police aren’t going to protect their property they’ll protect it themselves? What happens when they take away the “joyousness” of looting? What happens when the rational people of the United States of America say, “That’s enough” and back it up? -- Because that’s exactly what’s going to happen. Hardworking business owners are not going to stand by and simply watch as everything they’ve worked for is destroyed. At some point, they’re going to fight back because if the country is lawless, they’ll have to take the matter into their own hands.

Hillary Clinton orders Joe Biden not to “concede” the election to President Trump under ANY circumstances … even if Biden loses

“I think that [Republicans] have a couple of scenarios that they are looking toward. One is messing up absentee balloting. They believe that helps them so that they then get maybe a narrow advantage in the Electoral College on Election Day,” she said. “So we’ve got to have a massive legal operation, and I know the Biden campaign is working on that.” -- That is incredible.

Israel’s false flag anti-Semitism

“The anti-Semites will become our most dependable friends, the anti-Semitic countries our allies” – thus spoke the founder of Zionism, Theodor Herzl.

Herzl was far from the only Zionist to advocate for an alliance with anti-Semites, and this malign pattern still holds today.

In Ukraine, for example, Israel has been arming and training the Azov Battalion, a vehemently anti-Semitic, neo-Nazi militia.

One of Israel’s strongest political and moral allies in the present day is Christians United for Israel, an organisation which, based on dubious figures, claims a membership of some six million supporters.

Barbarians At The Gates — Is Our Great Republic In Danger Of Falling? (VIDEOS)

What Americans seem to have lost is hope, and I think that is intentional. The media on every channel beats the public down with talk of sickness, possible school closures, the economy, riots, violence, and politics. There never seems to be any good news, and all the while, everyone is told to stay home whenever possible while protesters are told that their actions are patriotic and, in some cases, necessary to get their point out. Good people are living in fear while the cities are in free fall. So of course, they feel helpless and are at the mercy of their elected officials. Speaking out is not only not good, but it’s going against the grain. Americans are told to not question what’s happening, just shut up, put on your mask, and do as your told.

U.S. Navy sends a warship through the Taiwan Strait for the second time in two weeks - days after an American destroyer sailed near disputed South China Sea islands amid rising tensions between Washington and Beijing

A U.S. Navy warship has transited the narrow and sensitive Taiwan Strait for the second time in two weeks.

Taiwan's Defence Ministry confirmed the operation on Monday amid rising tensions between China and the United States.

The ministry said a U.S. destroyer, which it did not name, had sailed in a southerly direction through the strait and was continuing to sail south.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mr. President, a word, please; you need to talk to "an adult in the room" regarding China, and the US's current "picador stance" against it.

There is a point past which China's President Xi cannot allow these incursions to stand, without "losing face" to his Asian Pacific neighbors, and it appears that the US is attempting to provoke him to respond.

I would strongly suggest, Mr. President, that this is the most ham-fistedly, pig-headedly wrong move the US could possibly make at this time.

We don't have the money; the troop strength; the weaponry; or the manufacturing to pursue a positive outcome in a war against China at this point.

Besides which, after World War Two, courtesy of the Cairo Pact, the South China Seas were ceded to China by this agreement.

China says United States should 'brush up on' South China Sea history the article goes on to state:

"The United States needs to brush up on its history about the South China Sea, as World War Two-related agreements mandated that all Chinese territories taken by Japan had to be returned to China, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said in Australia."

If, in fact, the US "gave its word" that this would remain true, why is the US attempting to break that word by these repeated "Freedom of Navigation" exercises?!?

There is only one explanation; it is to make President Xi act first, so that his actions against American military hardware and personnel, cast him as "the baddie" in the eyes of the world, so that the US response to this "outrage" will appear "justified."

US Secretary of State Pompeo defends Saudi arms sales after damning watchdog report on Yemen

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has defended Washington’s arms sales to Saudi Arabia after a watchdog report said the State Department failed to “fully assess” the risk of civilian deaths in war-torn Yemen.

Pompeo said on Wednesday that his department “did everything by the book” in regards to arms sales to Riyadh in May 2019.

“I am proud of the work that my team did. We got a really good outcome. We prevented the loss of lives,” he claimed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It's all about Trump's getting those contributions from the members of the US's military industrial complex, for being allowed to make those sales to the Saudi government, and making out like bandits, right, Mikey?!?

You, sir, are a very interesting piece of work; a man who claims to be a Christian, but appears to have had his conscience surgically removed, before you took the job as Secretary of State.

As a sister Christian with a conscience, I find that a very hard combination to fathom.

The images of dead Yemeni babies and toddlers, shot to death or wounded for life with weapons the US sold Saudi Arabia, have seared my conscience. And for those of you wondering, the following images are gritty, horrifically graphic, and, if you still have one, will break your heart.

Reports of shots fired at pro-Trump caravan in LA suburb, suspect on the run after standoff with police

Police have responded to reports of fire being opened at a pro-Trump parade of cars in Woodland Hills, California, after a tire was slashed by a projectile, probably a bullet. The alleged shooter is at large.

The incident unfolded about 11:30 a.m. local time in the 20600 block of Ventura Boulevard, as the torrent of cars with Trump supporters was streaming past Woodland Hills, a neighborhood in the San Fernando Valley region of Los Angeles, California.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Looks like Antifa and BLM have decided to "Let the Assassinations Begin!"; the driver was dumb lucky to have escaped with their lives.

And let me tell you something about the neighborhood in which this happened; it is a very affluent, upscale neighborhood, full of shops and nice apartment complexes.

But IF, in fact, both Antifa and BLM have decided, collectively that random, targeted assassination attempts are the "way to go" in their continued thuggocracy, both organisations should be labeled as "domestic terrorists", and dealt with as such.

HomeUSA News‘We are not safe in Trump’s America’: Liberals attempting to spin unrest in Portland & Kenosha as ‘TRUMP RIOTS’

Following the shooting death of a Trump supporter in Portland, Democrats have taken to acknowledging increasing violence at protests across the country, but are laying the blame at the feet of President Donald Trump.
Many Democrats made it clear through Sunday interviews that they believe President Trump is to blame for increasingly violent protests across the country.

“I have long condemned looting, violence, threats...but let’s take a step back. This isn’t just happening in one place. It’s happening all over the country. It is happening under Donald Trump’s watch,” Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minnesota) told ABC News on Sunday morning.

The senator was reacting to a clip of a speech where the president called out protesters who harassed his supporters leaving the Republican National Convention (RNC). One of those supporters was activist Brandon Straka, who claimed he and colleagues were assaulted and he even captured video of the demonstrators hurling homophobic slurs at him.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

let's step back and look at the larger picture, shall we?!?

Portland, Kenosha, and Chicago have one striking thing in common; they are all run by Democrat mayors; they have failed all the good citizens of their cities by allowing riots to get out of hand, to the point where people are getting killed by rioters.

This attempt to smear President Trump as the instigator of this violence, will become an utterly failed tactic, come election time in November.

The Democrats have no plans, no policies, to guide this country to a better place; the only thing about which they are united, is their collective hatred of the President, and that cannot, and will not, win them the 2020 election.

Safe’ v. ‘unsafe’ gatherings? In Dems’ Covid HYPOCRISY land, it all depends on whether the event will help get Joe Biden elected

By Tony Cox, a US journalist who has written or edited for Bloomberg and several major daily newspapers.

Democrat hypocrisy over which large gatherings are deemed dangerous in the era of Covid-19 reached new heights when a US senator went berserk over Thursday’s Republican National Convention festivities at the White House.

Quoted from Chris Murphy: "Can we take the gloves off and tell the truth?

Trump is deliberately killing people.

He holds rallies where people get infected. On Thursday, no social distancing or masks, sending a clear message that the CDC should be ignored.

His plan is to kill people. Let's just say it."

I wasn’t aware that the Democrats had been leaving the gloves on in their nearly four years of conspiracy theories and coup efforts against President Donald Trump. Nor have they demonstrated any interest in telling the truth, so this may be a new wrinkle.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Here is the hypocrisy, writ large; it is not OK to socially gather because of Covid-19, but it is perfectly fine to riot and loot, risking infecting fellow rioters and looters, when you are attempting to blame President Trump for the violence!!

You've just got to LOVE it!!

HomeUSA News‘The new Babylon Bee?’ CNN commentator mocked after downplaying riots in Kenosha, Portland as ‘protests’ with a FIERY cover photo

CNN’s Chris Cillizza became the butt of the joke online after saying that calling the unrest in Kenosha and Portland “riots” is a desperate ploy by Trump. The cover photo seems to be at odds with the spin, however.
CNN political commentator Chris Cillizza faced a torrent of mockery from conservatives accusing him of whitewashing the violence festering in Kenosha, Wisconsin and Portland, Oregon, after he opined that referring to the looting, vandalism, and arson in both cities as ‘rioting’ is unjustified and a “desperate” political ploy by US President Donald Trump.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When words are robbed of their meaning, then those controlling the narrative control their meaning; what happened in Kenosha fits every definition of a riot I can turn my tongue to, and Cillizza deserves every bit of criticism he got, for mischaracterizing what viewers saw, plainly, on their screens.

Filmmaker Michael Moore Predicts Repeat of 2016, Claims Donald Trump Headed to Win 2020 Election

Renowned filmmaker Michael Moore predicted in 2016 that Donald Trump would win the presidential election despite all leading US polls claiming otherwise and tipping Democrat Hillary Clinton as the hot favourite.

Donald Trump is heading for victory in the 2020 November presidential election in the US, buoyed by the "off the charts" enthusiasm displayed by his supporters, says renowned filmmaker Michael Moore.

The author of Fahrenheit 9/11 and other award-winning documentaries, a staunch Democrat supporter, warned in a Facebook post that President Trump’s reelection campaign was wielding massive momentum in key battleground states such as Minnesota and Michigan.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I will confess to having a hug/punch relationship with Moore's work (but don't worry, Michael; my "punch" is nothing worse than a gentle tap on the arm, because I don't hurt people.)

I thought his documentary "Who do We Invade Next"?!? was utterly brilliant, because he showed how other countries are doing things much better than is the US.

That being said, I think he is spot-on in his prediction; this is going to be one of the most contentious elections in this country's history, but I do believe that Trump will win handsomely.

The Question Concerning Covid-19 and Technology

At a time of health crisis one would expect to see an open global scholarly, multi disciplinary debate among scientists, scholars from different fields, politicians and finance experts. Not only does such a discourse not exist, what we have seen instead is a crude attempt to eradicate any such exchange. It isn’t our governments that interfere with this crucial discourse: it isn’t Trump or the FBI that deleted seven million FB posts that didn’t agree with the World Health Organisation’s narrative. It wasn’t the Tories or Boris Johnson who erased thousands of salient videos from Youtube. It has been the work of the giant technology companies operating in concert to silence dissenting views.

September 11, 2001: “The Global War on Terrorism” is Fake. Al Qaeda is “Made in America”

The tragic events of 9/11 provided the required justification to wage war on Afghanistan on “humanitarian grounds”, with the full support of World public opinion and the endorsement of the “international community”. Several prominent “progressive” intellectuals made a case for “retaliation against terrorism”, on moral and ethical grounds. The “just cause” military doctrine (jus ad bellum) was accepted and upheld at face value as a legitimate response to 9/11.

In the wake of 9/11, the antiwar movement was completely isolated. The trade unions and civil society organizations had swallowed the media lies and government propaganda. They had accepted a war of retribution against Afghanistan, an impoverished country in Central Asia of 30 million people.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When the official narrative is an absolute lie, those in power will attempt to do ANYTHING to prevent the truth from coming out; this is one of the myriad reasons I so respect my husband, Michael Rivero, who is the webmaster of this site, as well as those who contribute to it.

Telling the truth is hard, and sometimes feels thankless, and God only knows, is NOT financially lucrative; people who perpetuate the lies are handsomely compensated.

The Stage Is Set for a Venezuela October Surprise?

The hybrid war against Venezuela is intensifying as the U.S. presidential campaign is heating up. The Trump administration and its Venezuelan and international allies have set the stage for an October surprise, a possible attack by the United States or one of its proxies designed to boost President Trump’s reelection. The attacks on Venezuela are coming from multiple dimensions, including overt military pressure, economic pressure, covert operations, and disinformation campaigns. All of these are elements of a hybrid war that has sought to overthrow the government of President Nicolás Maduro over the past years, and each element has seen new developments over the past few weeks, just as Venezuela is battling a surge in COVID-19 cases.

Overt military pressure

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The question, regarding any kind of coup or regime change against the Maduro government, falls squarely on the soldiers of its military; if Maduro's military remains loyal, I do not think the government can be brought to its knees;that being said, if decides to back the outsiders because they have been promised promotions, percs, or better pay, then all bets are off.

U.S. Control of Alexandroupolis Port Will Not Help to Protect Greece from Turkey

The Greek Private Asset Utilization Fund (HRADF) will sell a 67% stake of Alexandroupolis Port in northern Greece near the border with Turkey and Bulgaria. Two American companies are believed to be interested in the deal. Selling a port of strategic importance to U.S. companies, coupled with the availability of the facility for U.S. and NATO troops, is raising many questions in Greece. The Mediterranean country remains only one in two countries surveyed in NATO where the civilian population is not in favor of the alliance and only 36% of Greeks view the U.S. favourably. An announcement issued by HRADF emphasized that the bid consisted of two phases – “in the first phase, interested parties are invited to express their intention to participate before 5:00 pm on October 2, 2020.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Greater Turkey"?!?!?

Where is NATO in all this?!? this must be settled peacefully, through negotiations, or all hell is about to break loose, both in Eastern Europe, and the Middle East.

Because if they allow this Turkish madness to continue, it will mean the utter death of NATO.

Greece will defend every one of their possession in the Eastern Aegian islands to the blood of their last soldier on the field; and if the Turks do not understand that, they are out of their collective minds.

The Twilight of Democracy in the United States. Architecture of a Totalitarian Police State

The United States has erected the legal and institutional architecture of a totalitarian police state.

Institutionally, the national security autocracy has merged with the military, law enforcement and a vast private intelligence network to create a massive physical apparatus of repression that possesses panoptic powers.

Legally, an extensive framework of legislation threatens individual freedoms in the name of providing security for the American people.

Slowly, methodically and deliberately an apparatus of legal repression has been erected that abolishes significant constitutional protections guaranteed by the Bill of Rights, rendering genuine civil liberties into a set of arbitrary privileges to be withdrawn at the will of the state.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As a Christian Pacifist Activist, who never advocates violence, I have to wonder; when will the Powers that Be come for me?!?

When will they clamp down on WRH to the point where it can no longer be seen?!?

My criticisms of this government are not rooted in party politics at all; just in what is, and is not, good for We the People. I actually do not care so much about who is in power, because it is simply another face, and continuation, of the military/industrial complex' rule over this country.

I want foreign and domestic policies to be dictated by logic, reason, and intelligence; when did that become a crime in this country?!?

Police fire pellet guns on Kashmir Muharram procession: Witnesses

Government forces have fired shotgun pellets and tear gas to disperse hundreds of mainly Shia Muslims participating in a Muharram procession in Indian-administered Kashmir, injuring dozens, witnesses have said.

The violence came as the disputed Himalayan region - where nearly 97 percent of residents are Muslims - observed Ashoura on Saturday, the 10th day of the Muharram month in the Islamic lunar calendar.

Jafar Ali, a witness, told AFP news agency the procession started in the Bemina area on the outskirts of the main city of Srinagar and that government forces were present in heavy numbers.

Ali and other people who saw the clashes said security forces fired pellets and tear gas to break up the gathering. Police said mourners violated prohibitory orders that restrict all religious processions to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The people organising this religious demonstration decided to break the law, in order to make Indian authorities look bad and wrong; the Indian authorities are using any excuse to suppress other than Hindu worship, and the organisers had to know this. Neither can escape the responsibility for the injuries which happened here.

Turkey intercepts six Greek F-16 jets in the Mediterranean as tensions rise

Turkey said on Saturday it will hold a military exercise off northwest Cyprus for the next two weeks, two days after it intercepted six Greek F-16 jets in the Mediterranean amid growing tensions with Athens over energy exploration rights.

Video footage posted by the Turkish defence ministry on Friday purportedly showed Turkish Air Force planes preventing the Greek aircraft from entering the area where Turkey was operating. The F-16s had departed from the island of Crete and were heading towards southern Cyprus, the statement said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

President Trump, a word on this, please, sir; we have two NATO-member countries, very close to starting shooting war over gas exploration in the Mediterranean; this needs to get de-escalated, and quickly.

Israeli tanks hit Hamas after balloon attacks from Gaza

The Israeli army says its tanks have hit Hamas targets in the Gaza Strip on Sunday after Palestinian balloon attacks across the border continued.

An early-morning military statement said there had been airborne explosive and incendiary attacks into southern Israel on Saturday.

There were no immediate reports of casualties from any of the incidents.

Palestinian sources said an Israeli artillery shell was fired towards a field control point east of Khan Younis, and another shell east of Deir al-Balah in the central Gaza Strip.

According to the Israeli fire brigade, the fire bombs - crude devices fitted to balloons, inflated condoms or plastic bags inflated with helium - have triggered more than 400 blazes in southern Israel.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Hamas, a word, please; the launching of these incendiary devices is NOT going to get you your desired outcome; Israel can launch indefinite, continued strikes against Gaza until there is nothing left but a bombed out series of craters, and the stench of seared flesh.

You need to look at those international and regional legal bodies which can give your cause (the cessation of the blockade) both media coverage, and legitimacy.

But these acts, of launching incendiary attacks, just makes Hamas look like a really bad actor on the world stage.

IDF troops accused of firing tear gas into Palestinian hospital

Army says it has ‘no knowledge of what happened inside the hospital,’ after Hebron facility head says soldiers gassed coronavirus ward Sunday morning, hurting 25.

20,000 at anti-Netanyahu protest, including 200 Hasidim; events in world cities

Jerusalem demonstration ends largely peacefully; group from Bratslav sect, angry over Uman pilgrimage, joins in; man in passing car said to brandish pistol at Herzliya activists.

Thousands of Israelis took part in nationwide protests against Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Saturday evening, with the largest gathering taking place in Jerusalem where demonstrators have staged weekly rallies across from the premier’s residence. Some 200 Bratslav Hasidim joined the Jerusalem rally, angry at a government policy aimed at preventing their traveling to Uman, Ukraine, for an annual pilgrimage to the grave site of a venerated rabbi.

Media reports indicated some 20,000 took part in the demonstration in Jerusalem. Meanwhile organizers, citing bracelets they hand out to to all participants, said attendance was at 37,000.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The big question right now is, just what is Prime Minister Netanyahu willing, and capable of doing, to hang on to power, in the midst of these demonstrations?!?

The short answer is, anything with which he thinks he can get away; and that should concern "adults in the room" geopolitically, the world over.

Are We Deliberately Trying To Provoke A Military Crisis With Russia?

Tensions are becoming dangerous in Syria and on Russia's back doorstep.

A dangerous vehicle collision between U.S and Russian soldiers in Northeastern Syria on Aug. 24 highlights the fragility of the relationship and the broader test of wills between the two major powers.

A sober examination of U.S. policy toward Russia since the disintegration of the Soviet Union leads to two possible conclusions. One is that U.S. leaders, in both Republican and Democratic administrations, have been utterly tone-deaf to how Washington’s actions are perceived in Moscow. The other possibility is that those leaders adopted a policy of maximum jingoistic swagger intended to intimidate Russia, even if it meant obliterating a constructive bilateral relationship and eventually risking a dangerous showdown. Washington’s latest military moves, especially in Eastern Europe and the Black Sea, are stoking alarming tensions.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Provoking Russia may "play well" to America's illiterate, innumerate, and illogical groundlings who, for generations have been fed the "Russia-bad!! geopolitical poison"; but logically, at this point in the 21st century, it is counterproductive to any peaceful future with Russia, and that... is stupid beyond belief.

President Putin is a cautious man, with a very deep understanding of history; he is working toward improving the standards of living for his people, making Russian business sound, and does not want any real provocation with the US or the West.

President Trump eschews a real, and meaningful dialogue with him, on issues like nuclear non-proliferation, at the peril of starting world war III.

And Mr. President, a word on that, please; the US military doesn't have the weaponry; the troop strength; the money; or the manufacturing to insure a positive outcome in a shooting war against Russia.

And with weaponry, this country is consistently behind the proverbial 8-ball, compared to Russia and China. And why is this?!?

This is because the guys you play golf with, who represent the military industrial complex, believe that once they have contributed mightily to a President's successful election campaign, they don't have to deliver better weapons, at less cost, on time, and within budget, which actually perform as they advertise.

Mr. President, forgive me, but ..... there, in a nutshell, is your problem, and unless and until this is dealt with, intelligently and swiftly, the US military will continue to lag behind in weapons development for weapons which actually work as advertised.

And sir, if you don't believe me, please observe the performance of Russia's S-400 in Syria; it's no secret that other countries are lining up to purchase Russian weaponry systems, because they do work as advertised.

And we have a marvelous companion article, also in antiwar.com, titled:
The Pentagon is a shrine to antiquated technology where creative thinking goes to die

NIHILISM EMBODIED: OUR LAWLESS FINANCIAL SYSTEM

SOURCE: CHARLES HUGH SMITH

Not only have the billionaire class made money, they have tightened their monopolistic grip on the levers of money supply and distribution, turning a global rigged casino into a global company town.

Editor’s note: This is a guest post by my friend and colleague Zeus Yiamouyiannis, Ph.D., who has contributed essays to Of Two Minds since 2009.

So we have a lawless system. What does this mean for citizens and investors? In the near term it means that the fundamentals will not apply. Anything that maintains or augments elite wealth and increases elite options will be supported, and anything that consumes or converts common people’s wealth and labor and restricts their choices will be pursued.

Suddenly Fear Of Social Unrest Is Everywhere

Authored by Adam Taggart via PeakProsperity.com,

In a year that has experienced a global pandemic, Depression-level job losses, a bevy of large-scale natural disasters from wildfires to Cat 4 hurricanes to derechos, the #1 current concern we’re now hearing from our readers isn’t any of these.

Instead, it’s the danger of social unrest breaking out in their local community.

There is a line of intolerance that, once crossed, will turn the desperate masses against the small few benefiting so vastly from today’s system.

Skeptical it could happen? History begs to differ. Its list of social revolutions, uprisings and rebellions is so long it makes your head spin. Even the number that have happened just within the past decade is staggeringly large

It's Time For A Geopolitical Reset

Authored by José Niño via The Mises Institute,

Frankly, it's time to start talking about a geopolitical reset. A reorientation of American foreign policy priorities is long overdue. There are approximately two hundred thousand American troops in close to eight hundred bases in seventy countries stationed abroad.

According to American University anthropology professor David Vine, it costs taxpayers $85–100 billion per year to operate overseas military bases. Meanwhile, the decades-long war on terror has cost Americans $5.9 trillion and has led to the deaths of 6,951 American troops and at least 244,000–266,000 civilians in the Middle East. As of 2020, US defense spending stands at more than $732 billion—a figure higher than the next ten countries' military budgets put together.

Watch Joe Biden Slam 'Fatherless Predators' While Promoting 1994 Crime Bill That Targeted Blacks

The former Vice President, who insisted in May that African Americans 'ain't black' if they don't vote for him, suggested last year that 'poor kids are just as smart as white kids,' and worried in 1977 that desegregation would force his children to grow up in a 'racial jungle' - went on a tirade against minorities in 1993 while sponsoring the Democrats' 1994 crime bill, which supercharged the mass incarceration of people of color.

There's also that clip of Biden speaking fondly of his work with segregationists which his running mate Kamala Harris slammed him for during the primary debates (and later dismissed as nothing more than politics).

The Attempt To Overthrow America

Authored by Guy Millière via The Gatestone Institute.

Already in 2017, former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich had worried about the sporadic riots that were breaking out, for instance, when conservative speakers were invited to speak. The United States, he said , "is in the throes of a one-sided cultural civil war.... Surrender or fight – our country is at stake."

The situation, in fact, had become "worrying" even before the results of the 2016 presidential election were known.

As we now can read in the report by Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz, the senior levels of government during the Obama Administration were colluding to prevent President Trump from winning the election, and then, after it, to frame him in an attempted coup d'état.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF this country yields to "mobocracy", and the rule of law no longer exists, we can expect to see an economic and social breakdown in this country the likes of which will dwarf the effects of the Great Depression in the 30s.

Robocop Is Here - New "Smart" Police Helmet Scans For COVID-19 & Uses Facial Recognition

Authored by Jack Burns via The Free Thought Project,

It took 33 years but Robocop is now here. Well, not exactly, but the rise of the police state fueled by advancements in technology have given birth to a heads up display equipped helmet sure to please the most anxious of peace officers. It’s called a “Smart Helmet” and it can screen airport passengers for the COVID-19 virus as well as provide the scanning officer with other vital records.

Public officials in Flint, Michigan cannot provide clean drinking water to their residents but travelers to Bishop International Airport can get a glimpse of the new robotic cop helmets where they’re currently deployed.

Under the guise of screening passengers for COVID-19, the Smart Helmet, produced by KeyBiz based in Italy, can scan travelers’ body temperatures from over 20 feet away.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This technology is going to lead us backward, at warp speed, into a techno-embrace of Code Napoleon law, where one was considered guilty until proven innocent by a court of law.

This is utterly NOT the direction in which American jurisprudence needs to be moving, in this part of the 21st century.

The Fatal Attraction Of Techo-Fascism

Authored by Mark Petrakis via Off-Guardian.org,

"Those who are serious in ridiculous matters will be ridiculous in serious matters.”

- Cato the Elder

The enduring beauty of fascism is that it requires so little from us... so little independent thought; just our basic belief and adherence to a limited set of popularly-shared directives and narratives that once fully accepted, relieve us of the need to address stubborn questions or to fret over subtle differences of opinion and feeling.

Propaganda reassures us that we are complete, that we know all there is to know, that we are rational, pragmatic and pure, that the science has been settled and that we are a part of something special.

Such a surrender to reductionist narratives cuts across all classes and income brackets. Neither the most educated nor the least uneducated retain any special advantage in the face of powerful consensus-shaping propaganda.

Sweden's Conservatives Warn Surging Violent Crime Has Become A "Second Pandemic"

As the shooting of a man in Portland last night intensifies Americans' fears about mounting violent crime and the increasingly out of control "protest movement" spawned by the killing of George Floyd, the Financial Times has chosen to write a story about Sweden that could offer some insight into the mindset of the American "silent majority".

Now that Sweden has successfully beaten back its coronavirus outbreak, politicians in the country are pivoting to focus on a new issue that has emerged in the aftermath of the economic destruction wrought by the global outbreak. Even though Sweden never locked down its economy, it suffered an even larger economic contraction than its Nordic neighbors.

This, combined with years of heightened migration fueled by crises in the Middle East and Africa, has continued to fuel growth in crime across stodgy Sweden.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Looks as though Sweden's experiments in "cultural enrichment" are working just splendidly (if one loves mayhem, looting, burning businesses, and chaos, that is).

NYC Landlords Wage War Against Remote Working

New York City's biggest landlords have a major dilemma; that is, companies like Citigroup, JP Morgan, Google, Twitter, and Facebook all encouraged their employees to work remotely from home, which will result in a slower economic recovery.

Jeff Blau, chief executive officer of Related Cos., was on Bloomberg Television Thursday talking about the dire situation, and the campaign he is waging, along with other top landlords to convince companies that their employees should return to offices to avoid damaging the local economy.

"If you go to the business districts, Midtown, it's deserted," Blau said "If employers tell their employees that they don't need to come back, they're going decide to hang out at their parents' or in the Hamptons and phone it in. Ultimately, businesses are not going to be able to survive that."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mr. Blau, if you have motivated workers who pride themselves on making things happen, both for themselves and the people for whom they work, where they work is of no issue, just that they, and the people for whom they work, will thrive; that is the only issue.

Of course, lessees of large commercial space don't want to see this happen, but it is both the wave of the present, and the future.

NPR Claims That Calling A Riot A "Riot" Is Racist

Authored by Paul Joseph Watson via Summit News,

NPR published an article claiming that calling a riot a “riot” is offensive because it’s “rooted in racism.”

Yes, really.

The article was written by Jonathan Levinson for Oregon Public Broadcasting, the Portland NPR affiliate.

Portland has experienced 93 days of continuous rioting – last night was the first time in that entire period that the city has not seen unrest – but according to Levinson, merely calling a spade a spade is a racist dog whistle.

Levinson’s argument for this position is vague to the point of being non-existent. He appears upset that police are able to declare a riot and use crowd control measures to disperse violent BLM mobs.

Calling a riot a riot could be rooted in racism, says reporter Jonathan Levinson for Oregon Public Broadcasting, the Portland NPR affiliate. pic.twitter.com/b2srvbEgM7

UAE And Israel Plan To Create Intelligence Bases On Yemen’s Socotra Island

By South Front,

Israel and the United Arab Emirates are going to create a military intelligence-gathering infrastructure on Yemen’s Socotra Island, according to Arab and French sources.

According to reports, a delegation of Israeli and UAE officers recently visited the island and examined several locations for establishing the planned intelligence facilities. Earlier in August, the UAE and Israel with assistance from the United States reached a historical peace agreement relaunching diplomatic, economic and even military cooperation between the states on the highest level. The security and military cooperation in the Bab al-Mandab Strait was among the expected goals.

Kenosha Or Kosovo? Shocking Images Reveal Destruction After Race Riots Leave Buildings In Ruins

Harrowing scenes of destruction have emerged from Kenosha, where several nights of BLM riots have left the Wisconsin town looking like it's been through war.

Entire buildings have been reduced to rubble, businesses have been destroyed, and parking lots full of burnt-out cars are all that's left in some parts of the town, after riots over the shooting of 29-year-old black suspect Jacob Blake only came to a halt after President Trump sent the National Guard to restore order.

Josh Glancy, Washington Bureau Chief of the Sunday Times documented some of the aftermath, which locals believe was caused largely by "out of towners."

President Trump couldn't have asked for a better campaign advertisement.

Success: Since the National Guard moved into Kenosha, Wisconsin, two days ago, there has been NO FURTHER VIOLENCE, not even a small problem. When legally asked to help by local authorities, the Federal Government will act and quickly succeed. Are you listening Portland?

'The Saker' Asks: Will Hillary & The Dems Get The Civil War They Are Trying To Provoke?

Via TheSaker.is,

If you have not already seen this, check out this video of Hillary Clinton stating that, quote, “Joe Biden should not concede under any circumstances“

“Any” means “any”. That would include the (admittedly hypothetical) case of Trump clearly winning in by landslide. Again, “any” means “any”.

The direct implications of that is that the Dems should re-take the White House by any and all means and under any and all circumstances.

That is also a direct appeal to sabotage the US democracy which, as flawed as it is, is the only rule of law based option currently available to the people of the USA.

Will that result in a civil war?

That is rather unlikely, because for a civil war you need to have at least two credible parties which can coordinate attacks and defensive operations on, at least, a regional scale. I don’t see that in the USA.

But I don’t see how local/regional violence (at times severe) and political chaos can be avoided.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF we could right now, I wish that Mike and I could become citizens of a more sane, evolved, respectful, and responsible political culture than what I see going on in the US right now; unfortunately, we are both way too old, and broke, to make that happen.

"She Hasn't Done Her Job": Looting, Riots, & Mayoral Ineptitude Prompt Mass Exodus Of Chicago Residents

While mayor Lori Lightfoot continues to try and assure the public that she has everything under control, the exodus from Chicago as a result of the looting and riots is continuing. Citizens of Chicago are literally starting to pour out of the city, citing safety and the Mayor's ineptitude as their key reasons for leaving.

Hilariously, in liberal politicians' attempt to show the world they don't need Federal assistance and that they don't need to rely on President Trump's help, they are inadvertently likely creating more Trump voters, as residents who seek law and order may find no other choice than to vote Republican come November.

And even though residents understand the looting and riots in some cases, they are not waiting around for it to get better on its own, nor are they waiting around for it to make its way to their house, their families or their neighborhoods.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Can you blame them?!?

Mayor Lightfoot has lost the good people of Chicago their city; what other choices do they have?!?

The short answer is, not many.

Schiff, Pelosi Livid After Intel Community Ditches 'Manipulated' Election Briefings For Written Updates

House Democrats are livid after the Director of National Intelligence, John Ratcliffe, announced that US intel agencies would be pulling the plug on in-person congressional briefings on election security, and will instead be providing written updates ahead of November.

In a verbal notification to the House Intelligence Committee, chaired by Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), Ratcliffe argued that the process will prevent the unauthorized disclosure of sensitive information, according to The Hill.

Ratcliffe followed up with Friday letters addressed to top House and Senate lawmakers in which he emphasized that the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) plans to continue Congressional oversight efforts.

"The ODNI will primarily meet its obligation to keep Congress fully and currently informed leading into the Presidential election through written finished intelligence products," read the letters, which were obtained by The Hill.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That last sentence is rich with irony, considering how the US has destabilized and regime changed so many governments in the 20th and 21st centuries, if those governments were not to its liking.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

My heart is breaking, and I am nearly in tears, upon seeing/reading this article.

IF we are not careful, as a nation, this is what the whole of the unhinged, surveilled State of Amerika will look like; and its cities, like Portland, will be places where NO ONE wants to do business.

People are already leaving major metropolitan areas in droves, and places where these riots have touched, have already turned into post-apocalyptic "no-go zones."

If THIS is the future you want for your kids, fine; but if you do no, every voting citizen in your state needs to petition your governor to call out the national guard, and right the hell now.

SENIOR U.S. INTELLIGENCE OFFICIAL DIED BY SUICIDE IN JUNE

ONE OF THE nation’s highest-ranking intelligence officials died by suicide at his home in the Washington, D.C., area in June, but the U.S. intelligence community has remained publicly silent about the incident even as the CIA has conducted a secret investigation of his death.

Anthony Schinella, 52, the national intelligence officer for military issues, shot himself on June 14 in the front yard of his Arlington home. A Virginia medical examiner’s report lists Schinella’s cause of death as suicide from a gunshot wound to the head. His wife, who had just married him weeks earlier, told The Intercept that she was in her car in the driveway, trying to get away from Schinella when she witnessed his suicide. At the time of his suicide, Schinella was weeks away from retirement.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Possibly, his wife has been "persuaded" to go along with the "official" story; I would suspect that he may have seen (or known of) something he should not have seen or known, or was about to go public with something which bothered his conscience, and " wetwork" ensued because of it.

Iran calls for international pressure to force Israel to sign NPT

Iran has urged the international community to pressure the Israeli regime into joining the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT).

Deputy Representative of the Islamic Republic to the United Nations Es’haq Al-e Habib says the international community must force Tel Aviv to join the NPT and allow the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to access its nuclear facilities considering the Israeli regime's destructive role in the region.

Addressing a virtual meeting on the anniversary of the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty (CTBT) on Thursday, Al-e Habib stressed that the destructive role of the United States and Israel has prevented the realization of a Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) Free Zone in the Middle East.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

THAT... took "male attributes" on the part of the Iranian government, and one can only say, "bravo, and well done!!"

Nearly two dozen Saudi troops enter US base in northeastern Syria: Report

Saudi Arabia has reportedly deployed nearly two dozen combat troops to a US-run military base in Syria’s oil-rich northeastern province of Hasakah as the Riyadh regime and some of its regional allies are vying with the United States to loot the natural resources of the war-ravaged country.

Lebanon’s Arabic-language al-Mayadeen television news network, citing an informed source, reported that 20 Saudi soldiers, led by an officer called Saud al-Joghaifi, arrived at the US base in the city of Shaddadi on Wednesday.

The source added that the Saudi troops were accompanied by a convoy of US-led forces from the coalition purportedly formed to fight the Daesh Takfiri terrorist group, which withdrew from Camp Taji, situated 20 kilometers (12 miles) north of the Iraqi capital Baghdad, earlier this week.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So it's not JUST the US stealing Syrian oil; it's the Saudis as well!!

Portland Mayor Slams Trump's ‘Politics of Division, Demagoguery’, Rejects Federal Aid Amid Riots

Earlier in the day, US Attorney General William Barr accused authorities in Portland, Oregon of encouraging “violence through action and inaction,” through impeding and neutering local police, and refusing “to pursue charges against the rioters” amid ongoing anti-racism and anti-police brutality protests in the city.

The mayor of Oregon’s city of Portland, Ted Wheeler, on Friday blasted US President Donald Trump’s “politics of division and demagoguery” and rejected the president’s offer to send federal law enforcement personnel to quell ongoing anti-racism and anti-police brutality protests, which have turned in many incidents into riots and violence between demonstrators and police.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mayor Wheeler, I do not know if the laws of Portland or Oregon allow for a sudden, "snap election" to remove a completely incompetent mayor; but if there is not a provision for this, looking at your utterly pathological stupidity, in your inability to maintain calm, there should be.

Peaceful protests, and burning businesses to the ground, are two mutually exclusive actions, and your inability to define between them here renders you utterly useless to every business owner in Portland who has not yet had their life's work burned to the ground by your thugs.

And just as though one cannot imagine your professional impotence getting any worse, we see the following video from rt.com:


WATCH Portland protesters STORM mayor’s apartment lobby after he refuses Trump’s help to quell riots

If these thugs.... are so much "with you", then, sir, can you explain to anyone with the capability of thinking rationally, why they stormed your apartment building?!/

Swedish Police 'Have No Control' as Koran Burning Sparks Riots in Malmo - Photos, Videos

A group of activists burned a copy of the Islamic holy book and uploaded the video, depicting it online after police arrested a leader of "Hard Line" political party was arrested by authorities.

Mass riots hit Malmo, Sweden after a public Koran burning. At least three hundred enraged people rallied in the Muslim-majority neighbourhoods, with a crowd torching cars and throwing stones at the police officers, who tried to ease the tensions.

"We have ongoing and violent riots right now that we have no control over", police spokesman Rickard Lundqvist told journalists.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Sweden; another absolutely no-go zone; how is that "cultural enrichment" working out for the citizens of Malmo?!?

One does have to ask.

Trump Vows to 'Go In and Take Care' of Portland if Mayor Wheeler 'Doesn't Get Control' of City

Earlier, US President Donald Trump stated: "Are you listening Portland?", when touting that the city of Kenosha, Wisconsin, saw no violence after National Guard troops were deployed amid violent protests sparked after the shooting of a black man, Jacob Blake, by a white police officer.

As Portland has seen continued unrest, US President Donald Trump promised to "go in and take care of matters the way they should have been taken care of 100 days ago" in the event that Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler "does not get control of his city".

"If the incompetent Mayor of Portland, Ted Wheeler, doesn’t get control of his city and stop the Anarchists, Agitators, Rioters and Looters, causing great danger to innocent people, we will go in and take care of matters the way they should have been taken care of 100 days ago!", Trump tweeted Friday

Civil rights attorney Leo Terrell blasts inaction by Democrats as 'thugs attack law-abiding citizens'

Civil rights attorney Leo Terrell ripped the leaders of the Democratic Party on "Hannity" Friday, saying that it is insulting and disingenuous for Joe Biden and others to suddenly claim they are the protectors of law and order after months of unrest.

"This is the reason why I am voting Republican for the first time," Terrell said in response to violent demonstrations outside the White House on the final night of the Republican National Convention. A number of lawmakers, including Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., and Georgia Democratic Rep. Vernon Jones were confronted and accosted as they left the White House grounds.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Bravo, Mr. Terrell; bravo!!

Is Syrian Oil Now A ‘U.S. National Interest’? We want to hear how keeping our troops there in harm's way is 'America First.'

Sure, officially, the military says we are there for stability operations, keeping the peace between the competing factions in the contested areas of Northeastern Syria near the Turkish border. They will say we are still patrolling with Kurdish fighters against the remnants of ISIS. More importantly, however, is Trump’s reason for leaving some 500 troops there—for protecting the oil fields from the Syria government on behalf of the Kurds. More on that in a minute.

While RNC surrogates were congratulating Trump for “rebuilding the military” and his America First virtues in countering China and Iran last night, four American soldiers were recuperating from injuries sustained when a Russian armored vehicle sideswiped their own Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected All-Terrain Vehicle (M-ATV) as they were both racing down a highway in Dayrick near the Turkish border on Aug. 24.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This was an absolutely detestably bad call on the part of President Trump, and needs to be reversed ASAP.

The Israel-UAE Deal Isn’t About Peace at All: The U.S.-brokered pact makes no pretense of peace for Palestinians. Instead, it sharpens a regional coalition against Iran.

In some ways, the U.S.-brokered plan for mutual recognition between Israel and the United Arab Emirates is big news. For more than a quarter of a century, only two Middle Eastern countries – Egypt and Jordan – had officially recognized Israel. None of the Gulf monarchies did.

So, it was a pretty big deal when the announcement was made. Except, actually, not so much.

Despite the UAE’s claimed adherence to a decades-long position that no Arab country should normalize relations with Israel until it ended its occupation of Palestinian land, ties between the UAE and Israel had been quietly underway for years. The same is true of many other Arab states.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Wow, this looks more like a cynical "same-old same-old", than a real move for peace in the region.

Russian Troops Active In Belarus War Games As Putin Unveils "Law Enforcement Reserve" Standing By

Early this week the US State Department said there were no signs that Russia's military plans to intervene in ongoing chaotic events in Belarus where swelling protests in the tens of thousands have brought Minsk to a standstill as opposition activists and strikers demand 26-year ruling President Alexander Lukashenko step down, or at least hold "fair" and not "rigged" elections.

As of last Monday Deputy Secretary of State Stephen Biegun said there were no indications to suggest Moscow planned to intervene in the political crisis, which many see as resembling the 2014 crisis in Ukraine where the country was split between pro-EU and pro-Russian factions and interests.

That assessment might have changed by end of the week, as regional headlines have confirmed Russia's military is assisting Belarus in conducting war games on Thursday, Friday, and into next week.

NBA Commits To Transforming Every Arena Into A 2020 Voting Location

It looks like grandstanding NBA stars like LeBron James, who have been pushing for the league to do something "social justice-ey" after failing to shut down the postseason, have finally gotten their wish.

Adam Silver has apparently consented to a new arrangement whereby all the leagues arenas will be transformed into 2020 voting locations.

That way, people can feel safe voting in person. Somebody should probably tell them that the last thing Democrats want is a workaround that deflates their argument for mail-in voting. The league has also announced that it's taking a "series of further steps" to advance the social justice agenda as well.

Play will resume over the weekend.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Can't... not... love... this!!!! :-)

Authored by Mac Slavo via SHTFplan.com,Gun sales were up 72% compared to this time last year,  with first-time buyers leading the pack. Americans are likely sensing that something is horribly wrong with the rigged system we are forced to live under.

According to a report by the Washington Post, the National Sports Shooting Foundation says that first-time gun buyers played a heavy role in the increase. Women and black Americans have also shown interest in arming themselves this year.

“Nearly 5 million Americans purchased a firearm for the very first time in 2020. NSSF surveyed firearm retailers which reported that 40% of sales were conducted to purchasers who have never previously owned a firearm,” the organization said in its analysis, which tracked background checks associated with the sale of a firearm reported by the FBI’s National Instant Background Check System.

The organization said this uptick in purchases by those who have not owned a gun before, equates to nearly 5 million first-time gun owners in the first seven months of 2020.

The MTA Is Preparing For A "Doomsday Scenario" That Includes Higher Fares, 40% Cut In Service

The MTA says it is now preparing for a "doomsday scenario" that could include a 40% cut in service for both commuter trains and busses, resulting in longer wait times, lane closures, fare hikes and massive job cuts.

New York’s Metropolitan Transportation Authority says this will be the new reality for New Yorkers if the government doesn't come up with $12 billion in aid that it needs to cover a budget shortfall that has emerged as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. The MTA has an astonishing $45.4 billion in debt.

On Wednesday, MTA officials said that "a potential 40% cut to subway and bus service, a 50% reduction in commuter-rail service, higher fare increases and layoffs" could all soon be reality, according to Bloomberg. The MTA is now urging well connected New Yorkers, including executives and real estate developers, to put pressure on federal lawmakers to act.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There needs to be a forensic analysis of the shortfall; a reasonable explanation of how it happened; a firing of the people who allowed this to happen; and a fresh start for MTA, free of the idiots who allowed this to happen.

Let them find work in the private sector.

Tennessee Teachers Are Worried You'll Overhear What They Teach Your Kids

Teachers are worried you’ll hear what they teach your kids.
A Tennessee school district asked parents to sign a form agreeing not to listen in or “eavesdrop” on online classes.

Parents were not a big fan of this idea, and after a backlash the district backed down.

But this wasn’t the first time schools worried about parents hearing what they are drilling into students’ brains.

One teacher complained on Twitter that virtual classrooms will have “potential spectators… overhearing the discourse.”

Several teachers expressed concern about parents overhearing “honest conversations about gender/ sexuality” in his classroom which usually has a “what happens here stays here” policy.

Apparently these gender and sexuality-obsessed public school teachers want to have sensitive conversations with your children behind your back.

This is one of the greatest arguments I have ever heard for home schooling.

Apple Revokes Epic Games Developer Credentials As Anti-Trust Battle Heats Up

In an unexpectedly brash move from the staid Cupertino tech behemoth, Apple has revoked the developer credentials for Epic Games after it refused to stop directing its users to circumvent Apple's fee-collecting payment channels for its popular Fortnite game.

"We are disappointed that we have had to terminate the Epic Games account on the App Store," Apple said in a statement. "We have worked with the team at Epic Games for many years on their launches and releases. The court recommended that Epic comply with the App Store guidelines while their case moves forward, guidelines they’ve followed for the past decade until they created this situation. Epic has refused."

A court order last week denied Epic’s motion to force Apple to reinstate Fortnite on the App Store.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It will be interesting to see how this unfolds.

Sandia Labs Goes Nuclear On Employee Who Sparked Internal Revolt Over Critical Race Theory

Sandia Labs - America's premiere government-funded nuclear weapons design lab, has taken aggressive action against an employee, Casey Peterson, who produced a viral video "pushing back on the narrative of modern systemic racism and white privilege."

Here's the long and short of it via Christopher Rufo - director of the Discovery Institute's Center on Wealth & Poverty, who has directed four documentaries for PBS, Netflix and international television - and has declared 'war' on critical race theory.

Rufo continues:

On Tuesday, Peterson made a YouTube video "pushing back back on the narrative of modern systemic racism and white privilege."

The video quickly hit 10,000 views within the labs and dozens of Sandia employees contacted Peterson to express support.

On "Unconditional" Military Aid To Israel, Biden-Harris Far To The Right Even Of Bush Admin

Authored by Brett Wilkins via CommonDreams.org,

Democratic vice presidential nominee Sen. Kamala Harris told a group of Jewish donors Wednesday that a Joe Biden White House would not place any conditions on military aid to Israel, and that a Biden-Harris administration would continue the "unprecedented" military and intelligence cooperation with the Jewish state the country received from the Obama administration.

Haarretz reports the California Democrat's comments came during a virtual campaign call with donors in which she assured attendees that "Joe has made it clear he will not tie security assistance to political decisions Israel makes," adding that she "couldn't agree more" with that policy.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And of course, the "normalization" of regional governments with that of Israel are supposed to "magically occur" with absolutely ZERO PROVISION FOR A PALESTINIAN STATE.

What is flipping wrong with this picture?!?

Nothing short of utterly everything.

The COVID-19 Scamdemic, Part 1: The Hard Road To A New World Order

Authored by Iain Davis via In This Together blog,

Among many similar globalist states, The UK State is a public-private partnership between government, financial institutions, multinational corporations, global think tanks, and well funded third sector organisations, such as so called non governmental organisations (NGO’s) and large international charities.

Through a labyrinthine structure of direct funding, grant making and philanthropy, the UK State is a cohesive globalist organisation that works with selected academics, scientific institutions and mainstream media (MSM) outlets to advance a tightly controlled, predetermined narrative.

This designed consensus serves the the interests and global ambitions of a tiny group of disproportionately wealthy people.
