Yemen’s Houthis Set to Withdraw From Two Ports in Hodeidah on Monday

According to sources familiar with the situation, the “first phase” of the joint withdrawal of combat forces from Yemen’s Hodeidah is to begin Monday. The Shi’ite Houthis are expected to withdraw forces from the grain port at Saleef and the oil terminal at Ras Isa. Troops are expected to end up at least 5 km away.

This is part of the first phase announced last week. Details were not disclosed at the time, and it’s still unclear what, if any, drawdowns are expected of the Saudi-backed forces at this time, as part of this phase.

Houthi troops who retain control of the main aid port in Hodeidah are expected to withdraw as part of a second phase of the withdrawal from the province. As part of the same phase, the pro-Saudi forces are expected to withdraw from the Kilo 7 road, a vital aid route that they’ve cut off.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Fingers crossed, and color me hopeful that this is at least the start of a mediated peace agreement which will have the Saudis out, and a return to a normal life of the Yemeni people.

With women in combat roles, a federal court rules male-only draft unconstitutional

A federal judge in Texas has declared that an all-male military draft is unconstitutional, ruling that "the time has passed" for a debate on whether women belong in the military.

The decision deals the biggest legal blow to the Selective Service System since the Supreme Court upheld the draft registration process in 1981. In Rostker v. Goldberg, the court ruled that a male-only draft was "fully justified" because women were ineligible for combat roles.

But U.S. District Judge Gray Miller ruled late Friday that while historical restrictions on women serving in combat "may have justified past discrimination," men and women are now equally able to fight. In 2015, the Pentagon lifted all restrictions for women in military service.

The case was brought by the National Coalition For Men, a men's rights group, and two men who argued an all-male draft was unfair.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Remember all the times Mike or I have mentioned that to transition to a draft would mean the inclusion of our daughters, sisters, and friends, to beef up military service rosters, and the build up to a world war?!?

I have to tell you folks; nothing telegraphs the imminent return of a draft, coming after both our daughters, and our sons, like this decision.

I cannot tell you when this is going to happen; but because 2019 is an "off year" with regard to elections, and we are running out of February rapidly, I would either suggest later this spring, or in the fall.

US to Announce Concrete Steps Against Venezuela on Monday

Vice President Mike Pence says that the United States will announce new “clear actions” against Venezuela on Monday, promising there will be “concrete steps” announced during his speech, related to attempted US imports of aid into Venezuela.

Officials are offering no specifics on what this is going to entail, but there are several comments to this effect in the past couple of days. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo had similarly promised to “take action” against the Maduro government.

Pompeo says the US intends action against anyone who opposes “the peaceful restoration of democracy in Venezuela,” by which of course he means the installation of opposition leader Juan Guaido as president.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This will be the polar opposite of "peaceful", if DC thinks that they can get a decap strike against Maduro going, and keep those Venezuelans who support him not striking back.

But as far as I have been able to see, Maduro's military is, in general, staying loyal to Maduro, at least for the foreseeable future.

IF that changes, expect all heck to break loose in Venezuela.

Forget Jussie Smollet, Here Are the Real False Flags

The world slipped closer to nuclear war. Big false flags—actual, suspected, and anticipated—were a key factor. But hardly anybody noticed. Everyone was riveted by the story of actor Jussie Smollet, who supposedly paid a couple of Nigerian-American bodybuilders for a staged racist-homophobic near-lynching. The ostensible motive: Add a zero to Smollet’s pathetic little million-a-year salary.

The Jussie Smollet hoax was story number 29 of the 31 we covered on this week’s False Flag Weekly News.

TECH BILLIONAIRE ALLEGEDLY BEHIND A FALSE FLAG OPERATION PLAYED A ROLE IN CREATING FAKE NEWS SOFTWARE, NONPROFIT CONFIRMS

The liberal billionaire who allegedly backed a misinformation campaign during the midterm elections played a significant role in funding a group responsible for creating a controversial fake news project.

Reid Hoffman greatly increased his financial contributions to artificial intelligence research group OpenAI, The Daily Caller News Foundation has learned. The group recently developed software allowing people with the know-how to craft so-called “deepfake” news articles, The Guardian reported.

“OpenAI has lots of co-founders, by the way, with most involved ones being our CTO Greg Brockman and Chief Scientist Ilya Sutskever,” Jack Clark, the nonprofit’s head of policy, told TheDCNF, referring to OpenAI executives Greg Brockman and Ilya Sutskever.

Clark confirmed the LinkedIn founder stepped up his funding in 2018.

US-backed opposition caught on VIDEO throwing Molotov cocktails at aid truck on Venezuela border

As Washington and Caracas blame each other for torching a truck carrying what the US called vital ‘humanitarian supplies’ from Colombia to Venezuela, a video has emerged, finally shedding some light on the incident.

The truck caught fire and burned down during a failed attempt on Saturday by US-backed opposition activists to breach the closed Colombia-Venezuela border crossing at the Francisco de Paula Santander Bridge, near the Venezuelan city of Urena. The Venezuelan government refuses to let the American cargo in, calling these ‘humanitarian’ convoys a propaganda stunt and a precursor to a military invasion.

Photos of the incident were immediately used by US officials to double down on their outrage and calls for regime change in Caracas. But footage that has surfaced on social media tells a strikingly different story, pinning the blame on ‘activists’ in the crowd.

A Wider Bridge: the “gay rights” group funded by homophobes

If you’ve encountered LGBTQ Jewish life in the United States, odds are you’ve heard of A Wider Bridge. The LGBTQ-specific Israel advocacy organization, whose mission in its own words is “Equality IN Israel and Equality FOR Israel,” has tried hard to portray itself as progressive and to create a pro-Israel bent in LGBTQ life in the United States.

The organization has repeatedly drawn accusations of pinkwashing – the attempt to use the supposedly positive record of the Israeli state on LGBTQ rights to cover up the state’s brutal oppression and ethnic cleansing of Palestinians – to which it responds by declaring that pinkwashing is a myth.

Red Cross denounces unsanctioned use of its emblems to smuggle US aid to Venezuela

The Red Cross learned that some “people not affiliated” with the agency are trying to disguise themselves as aid workers to smuggle cargo for Venezuela’s opposition across the closed frontiers.

UN Staffer Warns that 5G is a ‘War on Humanity’

5G is a greater threat to all life on earth than global thermal nuclear war; it permanently alters DNA and destroys the genetic code in human beings and their seed (just as it does for all life), once that seed is passed on to future generations, the mutated genetic code never goes away; this radiation has a similar effect on DNA as nuclear fallout, but from a much greater distance. If they put 20,000 satellites of this into space to radiate every inch of the planet, as they have planned, it will be similar to blanketing the entire planet with depleted uranium.

What War Films Never Show You

Newspapers on the other side of the world are calling it “the biggest U.S. cinema event of all time.”

Critical acclaim has poured in from all corners for the BBC production They Shall Not Grow Old, a technical and emotional masterpiece on the First World War — the war Woodrow Wilson said would “make the world safe for democracy.”

The way the film brings old footage, and therefore the soldiers, to life is almost magical and powerfully moving. But because of how director Peter Jackson defined his film, a critical element is virtually invisible: the wounded.

Jackson distilled the stories of 120 veterans who spoke on some 600 hours of BBC audio tape done in the 1960s and ‘70s. His goal was to have “120 men telling a single story…what it was like being a British soldier on the Western Front.” He artfully presents it, using no narration other than the archive of BBC interviews.

"Humanitarian Intervention" And The New World Order, Part 1

The term „humanitarian intervention“ is the American political neologism (newly coined word) to morally cover a new format of Washington’s global imperialism at the time of the post-Cold War’s „New World Order“ in which the USA feel very comfortable to play a role of a global policeman. Theoretically, according to the Western conception of „humanitarian intervention“, one or more states (the USA and the NATO) have a moral (quasi) obligation and/or right to intervene into the internal affairs of other state, if this state (according to the self-evaluation by Washington) does not respect commonly accepted principles of humanitarian law but in particular if the task of such military intervention is to save the lives of a particular group of people (minority) which the state’s authorities, to be intervened against, either threatens or is incapable of protecting. Here it is not of any importance whether such a group is of domestic or foreign origin (citizens).

Feb 23 09:18

"Humanitarian Intervention" And The New World Order, Part 2

It is a very fact that modern Public International Law strictly prohibits either any threat of armed force by any sovereign political entity (state) or use of armed force by any state acting without the authorization of the UNSC on the foundation of the VII Chapter of the UN Charter. In other words, the use of force, including an armed (military) intervention, is possible only under the umbrella of the UN Charter but after the authorization by the UNSC in accordance to the idea of collective security. Here, two questions arise: What is Public International Law and What is collective security?

"Humanitarian Intervention" And The New World Order, Part 3

The NATO launched a military intervention against the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (Serbia and Montenegro) on March 24th, 1999 in the name of protection of human rights of Kosovo Albanians. In other words, the 78 days of barbaric air-strikes were formally justified by “humanitarian intervention” which was mainly based on the false flags and fake news (like the Rachak case) by Western corporate mass media or brutal lies from the ground (like by William Walker – a Head of the Kosovo Verification Mission).

2019 revolution (top-down & bottom-up) on 4 levels of .01% rogue state empires: US, global, exo-political/ET, and cosmic to allow such robust evil

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

“You can be amazing;
you can turn a phrase into a weapon or a drug.
You can be the outcast;
or the backlash of somebody’s lack or love.

Or you can start speaking up.”
~ Sara Bareilles, Brave (music video)

Revolution: from Latin revolutio, a “turn around” or return.

Earth is in historic revolution at four levels, with 2019 analogous to The Emperor’s New Clothes when We the People trust our own eyes to see:

1. Ongoing US illegal rogue state empire, lying for centuries to neocolonial-loot targeted “slave” groups (human resources) parasitizing natural resources that annually kill millions, harm billions, and loot trillions. The empire’s lies are paper-thin, repeated in controlled corporate media and public education, and will be recognized and ended in a relative moment after We the People choose to look rather than take dictates from literal .01% psychopaths.

Lies About Rwanda Mean More Wars If Not Corrected

Get past Hitler, and shouts of “We must prevent another Rwanda!” will stop you in your tracks, unless your education has overcome a nearly universal myth that runs as follows. In 1994, a bunch of irrational Africans in Rwanda developed a plan to eliminate a tribal minority and carried out their plan to the extent of slaughtering over a million people from that tribe — for purely irrational motivations of tribal hatred. The U.S. government had been busy doing good deeds elsewhere and not paying enough attention until it was too late. The United Nations knew what was happening but refused to act, due to its being a large bureaucracy inhabited by weak-willed non-Americans. But, thanks to U.S. efforts, the criminals were prosecuted, refugees were allowed to return, and democracy and European enlightenment were brought belatedly to the dark valleys of Rwanda.

FLASHBACK - Amazing 'Roots' returns after 40 years, dredging up Alex Haley plagiarism scandal

For all the glory, accolades and accomplishments, "Roots" is still deeply rooted in controversy.

Alex Haley, the author of the celebrated book, said it was based on his own family history. But Haley, who died in 1992, was famously accused of plagiarizing parts of the Pulitzer-winning "Roots" — and settled a very public lawsuit brought against him by another writer.

Harold Courlander, who was white, wrote a novel called "The African" in 1967. The book had a similar story of a slave's capture in Africa, his horrific experience as cargo on a ship and his struggle to hold on to his native culture in a harsh new world.

While there are major differences between the two books, Courlander and several expert witnesses testified that Haley had used "The African" as source material — both for his 1976 book and the 1977 TV miniseries, which was seen by about 140 million viewers.

Alex Haley's Fraudulent Roots

Black commentator Stanley Crouch doesn’t mince words when it comes to Alex Haley. Haley, Crouch insists, was a “ruthless hustler” and “one of the biggest damn liars this country has ever seen.” Crouch likens Haley to Tawana Brawley, the young black woman who infamously lied about being raped and humiliated by a white police officer. Like the lie concocted by Brawley and abetted by the likes of Al Sharpton, Haley’s story is also a “hoax” that beautifully illustrates “how history and tragic fact can be pillaged by an individual willing to exploit whatever the naïve might consider sacred.”

Crouch explains: “Haley came on the scene when Negroes were becoming obsessed with their African ancestry and were having overwrought reactions to a tale of slavery that always, conveniently, left out the crucial role of the cooperative and profiting Africans.”

After all, we live in a society in which it is positively cool to suffer from ‘structural oppression’. In which campaigners actively covet hatred, constantly trawling for evidence that their group, their identity, their tribe is more loathed and wronged than any other. Hell, we live in a society in which young people cut themselves with knives and boastfully post photos of their wounds on social media. In such a climate, Smollett’s possible self-administering of a cut to his cheek and his phoney claim that he was violently insulted by modern-day white supremacists starts to make sense as a snapshot of our sick society.

False Flags And Hoaxes: Have the Marxists Overplayed Their Hand?

Anyone who has watched a cop show knows when investigators are working on a criminal case and have targeted a suspect, if the evidence begins to point to a different individual, the investigators redirect there focus and follow the evidence until the guilty party is arrested.

That is not what is happening in the Russia collusion investigation of President Trump. As new evidence has emerged the focus of the Mueller investigation has remained on Trump.

The investigation has found no evidence of collusion on the part of the President; however, a mountain of evidence has been uncovered pointing to the guilt of senior members of Obama’s Administration and senior members of the CIA, FBI and DOJ.

The guilt of those on the Left is now so obvious that even the “Common Core” kids can see it, but Mueller has refused to act; instead, going after Trump’s friends for process crimes. Was Smollett’s fake attack a planned distraction gone wrong?

Scarborough used a segment on his show to say: 'This is pretty simple. It's all on the president's shoulders. It's all the president's fault.

'And he sits there with his mouth shut, for once in his life, doesn't say anything, doesn't tweet anything, which, of course, makes it even more on him.'

A superpower and “the world’s sickest warrior state”

Living through five or six major wars has hardened me to what I thought were the extremes of inhuman cruelty and brutality.

Two things made those extremes almost bearable: the brutality always revealed – at least according to the media coverage – the viciousness of the enemy. It was therefore quite understandable when our “brave men and women” pulverized the enemy.

Films of Japanese torturing captive Americans somehow justified holding over 7,000 Japanese Americans in internment camps during World War II; and only a small percentage of Americans found the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki unreasonably vengeful at best, at worst, depraved.

The media giants in America portrayed the North Koreans as barbaric beasts with their captives, quite unlike their southern counterpoints – our allies during the Korean War. No one ever felt the need to explain how the South Koreans were a civilized breed while the North Koreans were absolute savages, at least according to the official line.

Verbal attack on French philosopher new anti-Semitism jolt

An upsurge in anti-Semitism in France reached a climax this weekend with a torrent of hate speech directed at a distinguished philosopher during a march of yellow vest protesters, adding to questions about the radicalized fringes of the movement hidden within French society and troubling the nation. Paris judicial authorities opened an investigation Sunday into anti-Semitic remarks hurled at Alain Finkielkraut a day earlier as he accompanied his mother-in-law to her Left Bank home in Paris. The investigation is being conducted into "public insult based on origin, ethnicity, nationality, race or religion" after a band of men in the protest march raged at Finkielkraut. "Go back to Tel Aviv," "Zionist," and "France is our land" were among the insults captured on video.

Anti-Semitism rising sharply across Europe, latest figures show

Anti-Semitism is rising sharply across Europe, experts have said, as France reported a 74 per cent increase in the number of offences against Jews last year and Germany said the number of violent anti-Semitic attacks had surged by more than 60 per cent. The figures confirm the results of three recent Europe-wide surveys showing Jewish people feel at greater risk, and are experiencing markedly more aggression, amid a generalised increase in racist hate speech and violence in a significantly coarser, more polarised political environment ... The French president, Emmanuel Macron, denounced the trend as "unacceptable", telling ministers that anti-Semitism in France was "a repudiation of the Republic and its values". Petra Pau, an MP for Germany's Die Linke party, said more and more people felt free to "deny the Holocaust and engage in anti-Semitic agitation".

Flashback: 'Ah, How Sweet It Is To Be Jewish ...'

Alain Finkielkraut is a professor of philosophy at France's eliteÉcole Polytechnique who for years has been a darling of a certain section of the Parisian intelligentsia ... "Ah, how sweet it is to be Jewish at the end of this 20th century! [he writes] We are no longer History's accused, but its darlings. The spirit of the times loves, honors, and defends us, watches over our interests; it even needs our imprimatur. " ... Obviously, it is "sweet" to be Jewish in these final years of the century, but only a Jew has the right to say so. In effect, as Finkielkraut acknowledges, it is no longer possible to publish without the imprimatur of organized Jewry.

The Growing Anti-Semitism Scam

The alleged increase in anti-Semitic incidents is largely fueled by how those incidents are defined. Israel and its friends have worked hard to broaden the parameters of the discussion, making any criticism of Israel or its activities either a hate crime or ipso facto an anti-Semitic incident. The U.S. State Department's working definition of anti-Semitism includes "...the targeting of the state of Israel," and it warns that anti-Semitism is a criminal offense. Recent legislation in Washington and also in Europe has criminalized hitherto legal and non-violent efforts to pressure Israel regarding its inhumanity vis-à-vis the Palestinians ... All of the media exposure of so-called anti-Semitism has a political objective, whether intended or not, which is to insulate Israel itself from any criticism and to create for all Jews the status of perpetual victimhood
Note: Is anti-Palestinanism a crime.

Liberals, Conservatives, and Many in Between Oppose Impossible and Dangerous Stipulations in the “Green New Deal” — Naomi Wolf, Bill O’Reilly, and More

By B.N. Frank

The Green New Deal has been getting a lot of criticism from both the political left and the right.

From the left, Naomi Wolf, who has an impressive résumé as a commentator: “The Green New Deal ASTONISHES – Vast $$ for VCs, ‘New Banks’, Fed Reserve, Nat’l ‘Smart Grid’, No Oversight”...

We Have Been Criminalized by an Overabundance of Laws

Governments have learned that laws can be used as revenue and control measures by criminalizing more and more of human activity. Indeed, in many instances the term “criminal” is now meaningless as law enforcement has become a greater threat to ordinary people than actual criminals.

Self-blinded, hyper-biased mainstream media has turned “fact checking” into a mockery of itself

“Fact checking” may have been founded on the premise of spreading truth, but in today’s world, “fact checkers” serve only to spread propaganda. In addition to left-leaning “fact checker” sites, we now have “fact checkers” surveying social media to stamp out dissent and “fact checker” applications for mobile devices and web browsers to label and censor “unapproved” content. -- While “fact checking” was once a valuable asset for discerning truth, it is now nothing more than a tool of oppression. The Left has gone so far to corrupt “fact checking” that the real meaning of “truth” in and of itself may also soon be forgotten.

How Microsoft is engineering massive, nationwide criminal election fraud with the help of a shady browser plug-in called “NewsGuard”

The good news with all this is that pretty much nobody uses NewsGuard, nor is anyone using the novel web browser recently released by Microsoft, known as “Edge,” that contains NewsGuard automatically built-in to its functionality. -- “The latest estimates suggest that only a little over 2 percent of internet users browse with Edge,” Dhillon explains. “Google’s Chrome, by contrast, accounts for half of the entire U.S. browser market.”

The Tactical Industry and the Erosion of Constitutional Rights

When we put things together and view the totality of circumstances, we see a police agency in a red flag law state destroying confiscated firearms. We have a popular company in the industry aiding them (interestingly, committing a federal felony in one of the pictures). This insight can give viewers the perception that the Police may have taken these firearms without due process in one of these red flag cases. That might sound like a bit of a leap in logic, mixed in with assumptions- but there is more to the story.

$22 trillion debt? Let's spend more

The national debt crossed the $22 trillion mark this month with the same ho-hum response from the American people as when it topped $20 trillion, and $15 trillion and $10 trillion. -- Just another unfathomably huge number that keeps growing, so don't bother us about it, because it's too big to be real anyway. -- Except that it is very real, and our individual share of it is $67,501.

Peter Schiff: “The Real National Emergency Isn’t At The Border. It’s The National Debt!”

We are headed for a train wreck in this country because of the national debt and yet nobody seems concerned about it. In fact, many Americans have taken to emulating the federal government by getting themselves buried in massive amounts of debt as well, compounding the issue. According to Seeking Alpha‘s report by Schiff Gold, we should all we wary of the government’s overspending and desire to tax more to make up for it. Just because we haven’t suffered a crisis – YET- based on this debt doesn’t mean that one isn’t coming.

A Recession Indicator Having A PERFECT Record For 70 Years Is About To Be Triggered

This isn’t the only indication that a recession is creeping up on the United States. Other signs are there if you choose to look past the glassy-eyed talking heads in the media. Retail sales were so bad in December of 2018, that many say it had to be “suspect data” and not the simple fact that the economy isn’t as strong as many would have you believe. If the data was not suspect than a recession is on the way. And with retail stores closing at an alarming rate, it isn’t surprising to hear retail sales have dropped.

Jussie Smollett hate crime hoax: He did not act alone… event was staged at the highest levels of the deep state? (Independent Media Narrative)

Where are the investigations into these political activists for promoting a dangerous conspiracy that almost pushed America into a bloody race war? Remember, every one of these media hacks conducted zero fact checking and ran with the Smollett claims, touting them as established facts when they were, in fact, fabricated lies. Yet there isn’t a single one of these propagandists who has been fired, or criminally investigated for their role in this dangerous conspiracy to deceive America and foment a race war. -- Why is the left-wing media allowed to continue pushing utterly fabricated hoaxes at the expense of America?

Fake Noose!

Most hate hoaxes are much more slapdash efforts. By comparison to most hate hoaxers, Jussie displayed a Daniel Day-Lewis-like level of dedication to Method acting. (Admittedly, none of the conspiracy seemed to know how to tie a noose, only managing to come up with a Windsor necktie knot to hang around the star’s neck.) -- We should have annual awards, like the Grammys or Emmys, for Achievement in the Field of Hate Hoaxery. -- We could call them the Jussies.

CNN Analyst Crosses Line When Talking Roger Stone and Prison

Discussion of Roger Stone’s social media post about the judge handling his case went off the rails on CNN, when analyst and former adviser to four presidents, David Gergen, made some controversial suggestions about what could happen to Stone in prison.

Gergen’s comments came as the panel discussed Stone’s ill-advised Instagram posting about U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson, which featured her image with crosshairs next to it.

“Through legal trickery Deep State hitman Robert Mueller has guaranteed that my upcoming show trial is before Judge Amy Berman Jackson,” Stone wrote on Instagram.

He referred to her as “an Obama appointed Judge who dismissed the Benghazi charges against Hillary Clinton and incarcerated Paul Manafort prior to his conviction for any crime.”

Watchdog Group Finds Over 50 Hate Crime Hoaxes in Last 7 Years

As the Jussie Smollett controversy continues to unfold and the debate over the validity of hate crimes increases, one watchdog group has found more than 50 hate crime hoaxes carried out over the last seven years on America’s college campuses.

Student-run group The College Fix found nine campus hate crime hoaxes between 2012 and 2014, including the case of the Montclair State University students who claimed to find hateful graffiti in their dorms threatening minorities and women. “Black B***h you will die,” was found on a dorm room door.

However, investigators found out that students had carried out the entire thing themselves.

The US ‘Has the Most Mass Shootings’—and Other Bogus Gun Research

Last week, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., warned President Donald Trump that if he declared an “emergency” to build a wall, “think what a president with different values can present. … Why don’t you declare [the epidemic of gun violence in America] an emergency, Mr. President? I wish you would. … A Democratic president can declare emergencies as well.”

Her fellow Democrats, Sens. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., and Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., quickly agreed. Warren tweeted: “Gun violence is an emergency. Climate change is an emergency.”
Yikes.

Not every problem in America should be declared an emergency—or used by a president to justify
But why are guns on the Democrats’ “emergency” list anyway?

One reason is sloppy reporting by lazy media.

I'm sure most of you have seen the Fake News Site list going around social media

I'm sure most of you have seen the Fake News Site list that has been going around social media the past few days. The media is incensed that the supposed 'alt' right was able to break through the dying mainstream media's Berlin wall of lies to expose their demi-God.

One Ultra liberal professor, Melisssa Zimdars, caught wind of the hysteria and took it upon herself to create her own "non-biased" list o fake websites.

Here are the criteria to be deemed a fake site according to Zimdars as well as the list of actual "Fake" Sites.

Judge Napolitano Explains to Fox News Host: Covington Kid’s Lawsuit ‘Impossible’ to Prove

Fox News senior judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano on Wednesday helpfully explained to Fox host Charles Payne that the $250 million lawsuit against the Washington Post filed by the family of Covington Catholic student Nick Sandmann faces a tough road, adding that it is “impossible” to prove that level of damages claimed.

Noting that President Trump gave his support to Sandmann’s suit, which contends the Post targeted and bullied the MAGA hat-wearing teenager in an effort to embarrass the president, Payne asked Napolitano if Sandmann, 16, has a case.

Hell Hole on Earth Discovered at Fukushima

Most people think they have to die to go to hell but that is not true anymore. Today, in the mainstream press, they announced the existence of a hell hole in Japan at the destroyed nuclear power station at Fukushima. We have a hot spot on our planet that has never been imagined before and in the face of it human technology is helpless.

At the levels of radiation now being found a Fukushima, a robot would be able to operate for less than two hours before it was destroyed. And Japan’s National Institute of Radiological Sciences said medical professionals had never even thought about encountering this level of radiation in their work.

AP’s articles on Ilhan Omar left out much of the story

The Associated Press sent out two versions of a story on responses to Ilhan Omar’s comments regarding the Israel lobby. Both were entitled “Omar’s edgy Israel tweet no surprise to some back home.” One version was slanted; the other made that one look good.

As we’ll see below, such distortion on Israel-Palestine isn’t unusual for AP.

Watch | A Millennial’s Guide to Promoting Regime Change in Venezuela

If you’ve been following developments in Venezuela, by now you’ve probably seen a video put together by viral YouTube comedian Joanna Hausmann. In the video, Hausmann says she’s fed up with disinformation about Venezuela currently spreading online and says she’s going to set the record straight. The points she makes are all generic mainstream talking points, and upon further investigation, her arguments don’t really hold up.

See For Yourself, 30 of the New, Modern, Amazing Airports of 'Stagnating Russia' (Great Pictures)

What prompted me to write this Awara Accounting report on the impressive development of Russia’s airports was to produce a cure for the but-beyond-the-MKAD syndrome. The MKAD is the 110 kilometer outer ring road around Moscow. And this syndrome refers to the habit of the detractors of Putin’s Russia to claim that any visible development of Russia, if any, has happened only within the limits of Moscow city – “just go outside the Ring Road and you’ll see there’s nothing but poverty and ruin.” Many of those who suffer from this syndrome live in a deep-seated cognitive dissonance where they just refuse to trust their lying eyes, while some of them are just peddlers of pure propaganda or victims of the latter.

So, let’s see what actually happens beyond the MKAD. Amazing airports have been built or reconstructed both in Moscow and across the vast country and many other impressive projects have been presented.
