We’re at peak insanity: The Fed’s fiscal profligacy and greedy tech oligarchs are sinking capitalism faster than the Titanic

by Mitchell Feierstein

Should you worry that the world has never witnessed a stock mania that has seen valuations skyrocket during the worst economic depression the world has ever experienced? Yes, indeed, you should step back from the cliff's edge immediately.

The billionaire oligarchs of Silicon Valley, whose stocks are at all-time highs during an economic depression, will utilize censorship to manipulate the outcome of the 2020 election. These oligarchs demand one rule for thee and another for me. They demand equality of outcome and will implement laws that prevent equality of opportunity. The US is in a class war dressed up as a race war. Google, Facebook, Amazon and Twitter are “all in” on ensuring their power base is protected with the election of Biden and Harris.

Press in His Pocket: Bill Gates Buys Media to Control the Messaging: Robert F. Kennedy Jr.

By Robert F. Kennedy Jr
Global Research, September 06, 2020
Children's Health Defense 3 September 2020

A Columbia Journalism Review expose reveals that, to control global journalism, Bill Gates has steered over $250 million to the BBC, NPR, NBC, Al Jazeera, ProPublica, National Journal, The Guardian, the New York Times, Univision, Medium, the Financial Times, The Atlantic, the Texas Tribune, Gannett, Washington Monthly, Le Monde, Center for Investigative Reporting, Pulitzer Center, National Press Foundation, International Center for Journalists, and a host of other groups. To conceal his influence, Gates also funneled unknown sums via subgrants for contracts to other press outlets.

His press bribes have paid off. During the pandemic, bought and brain-dead news outlets have treated Bill Gates as a public health expert—despite his lack of medical training or regulatory experience.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When one can throw around $250 million to "buy the news he wants", it's no bloody wonder that Gates the coverage he wants, without the fair-minded critical reporting he loathes.

In Gate's case, wealth is about never having to go to jail for the health and agricultural catastrophes one has created, because the narrative is so tightly controlled, that most people don't even know they existed.

Gates Foundation is Also Destabilizing Africa’s Food Economy. The Restructuring of Global Food Production

False Promises

In a new detailed report evaluating results country-by-country, the reality of the Gates Africa agriculture project shows alarming, but not surprising, results. The report is called False Promises: The Green Revolution in Africa. It was prepared by a group of African and European NGO’S in collaboration with Timothy A. Wise, Senior Advisor at the Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy of Tufts University. The report concluded, “yield increases for key staple crops in the years before AGRA were just as low as during AGRA. Instead of halving hunger, the situation in the 13 focus countries has worsened since AGRA was launched. The number of people going hungry has increased by 30 percent during the AGRA years… affecting 130 million people in the 13 AGRA focus countries.” That is no minor failure.

The Re-Colonization of Africa by Agribusiness

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This does not augur well for ANY PROJECTS in which the Gates Foundation is involved; it is simply, like everything else it touches, a great money-making scheme enabling the large corporations to get even richer on the backs of poor people in the third world, who are already horrifically marginalized, given the terms of their agreements and contracts with the makers, and owners, of these seeds.

The Israel-Palestine Conflict, Annexation and “Normalization”. Towards “Greater Israel”

As the Israel-Palestine conflict grinds on with no end in sight, Israel and the US have launched an all-out push to resolve the conflict once and for all, on Israel’s terms. If the manoeuvre is successful, Israel will end up with all of the territories it conquered during the 1967 war, including all of the Golan Heights and Jerusalem and most of the Palestinian Territories, including the best sources of water and agricultural land. The West Bank will find itself in the same situation as the Gaza strip, cut off from the outside world and surrounded by hostile Israeli military forces and Israeli settlements.

China Looks To Build Espionage Hub In Iran Under 25-Year Deal

Authored by Simon Watkins via OilPrice.com,

The next phase of the 25-year deal between China and Iran will focus on a large-scale roll-out of electronic espionage and warfare capabilities focused around the port of Chabahar and extending for a nearly 5,000 kilometre (3,000 mile) radius, and the concomitant build-out of mass surveillance and monitoring of the Iranian population, in line with the standard operating procedure across China, senior sources close to the Iranian government told OilPrice.com last week.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And unfortunately, current US Administration policy is driving Iran ever closer to China, which would seem to be the polar opposite of what the US government would want to accomplish here.

Iran Seeks Revenge For Sabotage Attack On Natanz Nuclear Plant

Iran has identified the perpetrators of an act of sabotage at Natanz nuclear facility in the central part of the country in July, according to a spokesperson for the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran. Behrouz Kamalvandi said that while the details of the act of sabotage are still being investigated, the security forces “have detected the agents [who committed the act of sabotage] as well as the motive, methods and manner of the sabotage.”

The AEOI for the first time described the July 2 incident at the Natanz nuclear facility as a sabotage attack on July 23, and since then pro-Iranian sources have repeatedly vowed to take revenge for the attack.

Meanwhile, Iran’s Defence Minister Amir Hatami announced that the country is working to expand its missile capabilities even further. In particular, the military is working on air-launched cruise missiles that would be able to hit targets in the range of up to 1,400km.

Embattled Lukashenko Raises Possibility Of Fresh Elections In First Hint At Compromise

Embattled Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko has remained defiant after weeks of mass protests have brought parts of the country, especially the capital of Minsk, to a standstill, following his disputed August 9 reelection to a sixth term. He's actually been seen walking the presidential compound grounds in combat fatigues while holding an automatic rifle, to show just how serious he is about resisting the unrest increasingly at the gates of his residence.

But on Tuesday he showed the first signs he might be willing to compromise as both domestic and international pressures grow toward holding a fresh election. The opposition claims the Aug.9 election was "rigged" as exiled opposition leader Sviatlana Tsikhanouskaya urges "international pressure on this regime" while issuing regular messages from neighboring Lithuania

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Fingers crossed, that the possibility for violence will be stayed, and that a second set of elections will be forthcoming, and counted honorably, when done.

Sex parties fine but no dancing allowed: Queensland's bizarre rules

The spotlight has gone on Queensland's bizarre coronavirus rules, revealing that while guests are barred from dancing at weddings, sex parties have the official okay.

According to the Australian Broadcasting Coporation, in Queensland only the bride and groom and their parents are permitted to dance at their nuptials as a result of Covid-19 restrictions.

However, sex clubs and organised sex parties – including group sex – is allowed under the Covid Safe Industry Plan.

CDC Announces That Students May Be Kept From Parents Overnight as Ohio Sets Up COVID-19 FEMA Camps

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is warning parents that their children may be kept from their parents overnight due to COVID-19 concerns, as states set up COVID-19 shelters where infected individuals could be forcibly quarantined.

“Tell school administrators about any extra supplies your child may need to safely make it through a night away from home,” the CDC wrote to parents in their advisory. “Bring extra medicines, special foods, or supplies your child would need if separated overnight.

“Complete a backpack card and tuck one in your child’s backpack and your wallet,” they added.

Challenging our public school district’s obedience of county ‘health’ ‘orders’ of mask requirement and ‘non-essential workers’ forced poverty, or face-fines and imprisonment (2 of ?)

Below is my second email to our NorCal public school district’s designated contact for answers regarding “health” “orders.” Three weeks ago I started by writing our teachers’ union leadership with similar questions, followed-up with them last week, and have yet to receive a response. This is the first email.

My plan is to politely seek an explanation. Without plausible explanation how masks are within limited government, the alternative explanation seems to be these “orders” are workplace harassment.

Maker Of Remdesivir, Gilead, Is Behind The War On Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) – They Control Covid Response Panel And Stand To Make 10s Of $Billions

There are tens of billions of dollars on the line if doctors are able to use something as cheap as HCQ and zinc to cure patients. Gilead, the maker of Remdesivir, wants to make sure that doctors use their 5-day coronavirus treatment which costs $3,000 per patient. In comparison, a generic dose of HCQ costs anywhere between $10 and $20.

Studies on Gilead’s remdesivir are abysmal, showing adverse events for 102 (66%) of 155 remdesivir recipients. The adverse events were so horrific for remdesivir patients, that 18 (12%) of the patients had to be taken off the drug. As their drug failed, Gilead went to war with a simple treatment protocol that was working.

Daniel Andrews 'is an out of control menace': Bolt

Sky News host Andrew Bolt says Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews is out of control and is a “menace” to his state and to the country as he imposes ruinous bans on people already just hanging on.

“The Victorian Premier is out of control, he’s a menace to his state,” Mr Bolt said.

“He's a menace to his country”.

“He is destroying Victoria's economy, destroying Victorian jobs, destroying the federal finances and I really fear that's it's so bad that he will now provoke civil unrest, much worse than what we saw on the weekend,” Mr Bolt said.

Mr Andrews announced on Sunday tentative dates for the easing of restrictions, should new case numbers remain low.

The Melbourne metropolitan area will continue with its stage four lockdowns until at least September 28.

Mr Bolt said the state has been “ruined by a premier who seems a megalomaniac, imposing ruinous bans”.

Real cost of Andrews' 'megalomania will be the deaths caused by lockdown'

Sky News host Rowan Dean says people dying from the effects of lockdown will be the real cost of Daniel Andrews’ “megalomania and this totalitarian left-wing rule”.

His comments come regarding Daniel Andrews' recent extension of the state's lockdowns, in particular the restrictions on regional Victoria despite it having less cases than the premier said warranted such measures.

“This is an absolute travesty,” Mr Dean told Sky News host Paul Murray.

“The reality is there is no scientific evidence from anywhere around the world that lockdowns do anything to stop the virus.

“That’s the facts.

“There is plenty of evidence that lockdowns either make no difference or actually make matters worse."

Hundreds of US Troops Arrive in Lithuania for Drills Near Belarus’ Border

Since August election, Belarusian President Lukashenko has accused NATO of building up forces to oust him.

Hundreds of US troops have arrived in Lithuania to take part in military drills near the border of Belarus, adding to the mounting tensions over the disputed Belarusian presidential election. On Saturday, about a dozen Abrams tanks crossed into Lithuania from neighboring Poland.

Since the August 9th presidential election in Belarus, the US and EU have rejected the results and called for a fresh round of votes. The official results gave incumbent President Alexander Lukashenko 80 percent of the votes. Since the controversy over the election started, Lukashenko has accused NATO of building up a military force on Belarus’ borders in an effort to oust the embattled president.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Even if the Lithuanian government continues to insist that the exercise was "pre-planned", it could have been "postponed" so as not to give any more fuel to the fire of Lukashenko's claim of a NATO buildup on its border, but NATO and Lithuania chose not to do that.

City of Portland caught housing, coddling, Antifa terrorists at city encampmen

The City of Portland has been captured on video housing and coddling Antifa rioters a.k.a. domestic terrorists who have made it their fulltime job to loot, steal, and burn down the city ultimately antagonizing the general public.

Known members of the communist anarchist group Antifa were filmed as the took refuge inside a city-sponsored encampment on Thursday before they became somewhat aggressive with a man who managed to be documenting the situation.

A YouTuber who goes by the handle Never Alone with Christ filmed his run-in with one of the unruly anarchists who fired several shots from a slingshot in an effort to detour him from filming.

KIDS RETURNING TO COLLEGE CAMPUSES BECOME PRISONERS

SOURCE: JORDAN SCHACHTEL
America’s college students are returning to campus for the Fall semester, and many are finding themselves in an environment that no longer resembles an academic institution, but something closer to a correctional facility for young adults. It’s not just a handful of schools that are pursuing extreme restrictions and punitive measures in the name of “stopping the spread” of the coronavirus, but something that has become a nationwide norm. College campuses have transformed into some of the most restrictive environments in America.

After hearing about these conditions, I sent out a post on social media asking for testimonials from students, parents, and educators. The responses below are some of the many replies I received discussing what students are experiencing in colleges and universities that have allowed for students to return to campus.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

OK, let me get my hands around this, please; students cannot socialize, but a BLM march through campus, where infected and non-infected most probably will gather, and further infections will most probably happen, particularly if you have a "super-spreader" at the event, is perfectly fine?!?

What's wrong with this picture?!?

BLOODY EVERYTHING, FOLKS!!

U.S. GOVT-LINKED PR FIRM RAN FAKE NEWS NETWORKS FOR RIGHT-WING LATIN AMERICAN REGIMES

BY BEN NORTON
A major US PR firm located just a few blocks from the White House has been caught running an industrial grade propaganda operation on social media. The information warfare blitzkreig relied on fake accounts and pages to spread disinformation on behalf of right-wing, US-backed governments in Latin America, while deploying covert propaganda to destabilize the leftist governments targeted by the US in Venezuela and Mexico.

The company behind the campaign, CLS Strategies, signed a contract to represent Bolivia’s far-right junta and provide “strategic communications counsel” in the lead-up to that country’s ostensible election. After coming to power through a US-backed military coup in November 2019, the Bolivian regime has delayed the election numerous times on specious grounds.

CLS Strategies also used its network of fake accounts and pages to push propaganda on behalf of Venezuela’s right-wing opposition and the US-backed parallel coup regime of Juan Guaidó.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Imagine my (absence of) shock here.

Folks, for those paying attention to the US's destabilization efforts against governments it doesn't like, this kind of work has been going on for decades; only the names of the organisations attempting to create destabilization change, but the work continues.

Xi's Political Rivals Run For Cover: "A Purge Is Coming - Be Careful"

Nikkei Asian Review has more details on Xi Jinping's ongoing purge in preparation to establish total authority over China's Communist Party, including related to some recent key, deeply symbolic acts:

Also on Aug. 26, Xi convened a meeting of 300 or so senior police and state security officials from across the country at Beijing's Great Hall of the People.

In a pompous ceremony, Xi handed to the police force a newly designed red and blue flag.

The red portion, occupying the top half of the flag, symbolizes the party and is meant to portray the police's absolute loyalty to the party, it was explained.

It ultimately means that for the first time the country's police forces are under Xi's direct control, instead under the immediate oversight of the government's State Council.

Each time Xi seeks to take control of a branch of law enforcement, he confers a flag.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Were I a political enemy of Xi right now, I would be heading for the hills; people at the highest level of governmental authority are going to be "eliminated with extreme prejudice", if they do not tow Xi's propaganda line right now.

Customs And Border Protection Bought Half A Million Dollars Worth Of Location Data

Submitted by Sovereign Man

Customs and Border Protection (CBP) just got its hands on a whole bunch of location data. The news service Motherboard (Vice’s technology segment) uncovered a procurement order for $476,000 paid to the company Venntel Software last month. Venntel specializes in location data mining, compiling and selling GPS data gathered on users from various phone apps.

Sources who work with Venntel gave Motherboard more insight into the type of data the government now has its hands on.

Venntel’s technology only gives anonymized data, meaning it does not identify specific people or phone numbers. It gives only a randomized identification number. BUT there is an easy way to identify the owners of the phone.

Get Ready for COVID-19 FEMA Camps

As our long national nightmare of “15 days to flatten the curve” drags into its sixth (sixth!) month, many of our nation’s governors and bureaucrats are inventing new ways to wield their power.

On August 31, without much fanfare and with almost no news coverage, Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine (R-Lost His Way) ordered Interim Director of Health Lance M. Himes to amend the insidious (and unconstitutional) health order the state’s citizens have been suffering under since March to create what amounts to FEMA camps. The order purports to “avoid an imminent threat with a high probability of widespread exposure to COVID-19 with a significant risk of substantial harm to a large number of people in the general population, including the elderly and people with weakened immune systems and chronic medical conditions.”

Guantanamo prisoners: US court says due process not for them

Landmark decision means judges at Gitmo's war court are not obliged to consider rights of detainees or their cases through lens of US Constitution.

A federal appeals court in Washington DC recently ruled that Guantanamo Bay prisoners are not entitled to due process - a landmark decision that may have an overarching effect on the prison camp's war court trials, and one that defence lawyers may try to challenge.

A three-judge appeals panel for the District of Columbia Circuit ruled unanimously last week to uphold the indefinite detention of Abdulsalam al-Hela, a 52-year-old Yemeni citizen who was held at a CIA black site for more than a year-and-a-half before being transferred to Guantanamo in 2004, where he has been detained without charge or trial ever since.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, I have to ask myself; when does due process stop applying to to American citizens?!? Because, folks, if this is allowed to stand at Gitmo, it will have an enormous effect on domestic law as well!!

The media, constantly running stories about all the latest infections – salmonella, e-coli, hanta virus, bird flu – and Americans, they panic easily so now everybody’s running around, scrubbing this and spraying that and overcooking their food and repeatedly washing their hands, trying to avoid all contact with germs. It’s ridiculous and it goes to ridiculous lengths… bunch of goddamn pussies! Besides, what do you think you have an immune system for? It’s for killing germs!…Let me tell you a true story about immunization okay? When I was a little boy in New York City in the 1940s, we swam in the Hudson River and it was filled with raw sewage okay? We swam in raw sewage! You know… to cool off!

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

Have you noticed that the government’s answer to every problem is more government—at taxpayer expense—and less individual liberty?

The Great Depression. The World Wars. The 9/11 terror attacks. The COVID-19 pandemic.

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.

Indeed, the history of the United States is a testament to the old adage that liberty decreases as government (and government bureaucracy) grows. To put it another way, as government expands, liberty contracts.

To the police state, this COVID-19 pandemic has been a huge boon, like winning the biggest jackpot in the lottery. Certainly, it will prove to be a windfall for those who profit from government expenditures and expansions.

Victoria Police ‘sang a different tune’ on BLM protests

Sky News host Peta Credlin says it’s abundantly clear “we’re not in it together” anymore, especially for the pregnant Ballarat woman arrested for allegedly organising a protest on Facebook against Daniel Andrews' draconian lockdowns.

Vision has emerged of charged 28-year-old Zoe Buhler being arrested for incitement during a police raid for her alleged involvement in organising an anti-lockdown rally for Saturday.

Ms Buhler was listed as an organiser for a rally against Victoria's stage four lockdown via a Facebook post.

Ms Credlin said Victoria police “sang a different tune” when the tens of thousands of Black Lives Matter activists protested through the streets of Melbourne.

On June 3 the assistant commissioner said police would “exercise their discretion” when issuing fines, but only three were in fact issued despite the massive crowd.

Facebook bans posts supporting Kyle Rittenhouse, calling him a “mass murderer” even though he acted in self-defense

Facebook has confirmed that it will remove posts in support of Kyle Rittenhouse from the social media platform on the grounds that he is a “mass murderer.”

The 17-year-old allegedly killed two people and wounded one in Kenosha, Wisconsin, after he was mobbed and attacked by rioters there. All three of his violent attackers had criminal records, with one being a convicted pedophile.

Conservative writer and YouTube personality Mark Dice said that Facebook threatened to suspend his page after he posted a video showing Rittenhouse offering medical help to wounded protestors in Kenosha before the shooting took place. He reported that they also threatened to delete his Facebook account.

A spokesperson for Facebook confirmed it was taking action against posts supporting Rittenhouse, saying: “We’ve designated the shooting in Kenosha a mass murder and are removing posts in support of the shooter, including this one.”

Jeff Bezos caught trying to hire SPIES to surveil Amazon, Whole Foods employees

Two job postings that Jeff Bezos put up for “intelligence analyst” positions at his Amazon empire have been taken down after their true purpose – to prevent the formation of labor unions and spy on employees – went viral.

The job descriptions for these two positions clearly stated that they involved monitoring and stymieing “labor organizing threats” both at Amazon and Whole Foods Market, the latter of which is now owned by Amazon.

Before they were removed by the company for specious reasons, the two job postings were picked up by critics of the multi-billionaire who spread them around in an effort to show people the ugly truth about Bezos, who only wants himself to be wealthy and nobody else.

“The job post was not an accurate description of the role – it was made in error and has since been corrected,” the company announced after the open positions were systematically vanquished from the internet.

Just in Time for the Elections : Facebook’s New Terms Of Service Update Sounds A Lot Like Censorship

This would not be the first time efforts have gone into shaping public perception via censoring or hiding information from people. The CIA’s Project Mockingbird was very clear on that, and it’s more than likely that the project was never shut down. The key question is, is what we believe about our world really true? And if it isn’t, how do we find truth when independent media is being shut out on social media platforms?

U.S. court - Mass surveillance program exposed by Snowden was illegal

Seven years after former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden blew the whistle on the mass surveillance of Americans’ telephone records, an appeals court has found the program was unlawful - and that the U.S. intelligence leaders who publicly defended it were not telling the truth.

In a ruling handed down on Wednesday, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit said the warrantless telephone dragnet that secretly collected millions of Americans’ telephone records violated the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act and may well have been unconstitutional.

Snowden, who fled to Russia in the aftermath of the 2013 disclosures and still faces U.S. espionage charges, said on Twitter that the ruling was a vindication of his decision to go public with evidence of the National Security Agency’s domestic eavesdropping operation.

Snowden did nothing wrong? Court rules NSA spying on Americans’ phones was illegal all along

A federal appeals court has ruled that the telephone metadata collection program used by the National Security Agency to spy on Americans was illegal, just as NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden said seven years ago.
The metadata “bulk collection” program violated the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, a three-judge panel of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled on Wednesday. The opinion delivered by Judge Marsha Berzon reportedly contained multiple references to Snowden and his role in disclosing the program to the public – for which he became a wanted fugitive.

60 arrested as Bulgaria’s largest anti-government protest in 2 months descends into violence (VIDEO)

Thousands took to the streets of the Bulgarian capital, Sofia on Wednesday to demand the resignation of longtime Prime Minister Boyko Borissov. The rally was marred by clashes between demonstrators and police.
The protest outside the parliament building started peacefully, with people carrying Bulgarian flags and chanting, “resign” and “mafia,” referring to the PM’s alleged ties to the country’s influential oligarchs.

But after dark, some tried to break through to the parliament, which was heavily guarded by officers in full riot gear. Demonstrators threw firecrackers and other objects, including eggs, apples, and garbage, at the cops. They also shook police cars and used pepper spray against the police, with around a hundred officers affected.

Enough is enough. Every politician running from school board, to country commission, to state house, to Congress, to President of the United States should be put on notice and on record. Where do you stand? Do you stand with the crushing, unnecessary burdens destroying lives? Can you justify the behavior of the politicians we’ve caught ignoring the rules they won’t enforce for themselves?

Do you trust me and my family and my community to make the best, most informed decisions for our community or do you insist on a one-size-fits-all, command and control list of edicts that crush not only the economy but also the human spirit? Going forward we should all demand to know how every elected official will operate in a once-in-a-century pandemic. Do they trust the public or do they amass destructive power like a Marvel villain?

What the UAE-Israel Deal Really Means for the Middle East

A key part of this joint intelligence initiative between the UAE and Israel (and, by extension, the U.S.) has been the dramatic increase in the past two years of the purchase of commercial and adjunct residential properties in Iran’s southern Khuzestan province – a key sector for its oil and gas reserves – by UAE-registered businesses, particularly those based in Abu Dhabi and Dubai, said the source.

“Around 500,000 Iranians left Iran around the time of the [1979 Islamic] Revolution and settled in Dubai, in the first instance, and then Abu Dhabi, and they have never been in favour of the IRGC having the key role in Iran, so some of them have been used to front businesses or commercial property developments in Khuzestan that are being funded from business registered in those two states of the UAE,” he added.

NATO Begins Provocative Military Exercises on Russian Border

Once again, NATO is operating dangerous and bold military maneuvers in regions close to the European Russian border. This time, the country hosting the tests is Estonia, a Baltic State that in recent decades has been characterized by a strong pro-Western and anti-Russian stance. The small European country is occupied by a large contingent of American troops and will be in such a situation until at least September 10, when the operations end.

The tests started on September 1 are already causing a small diplomatic crisis between Russia and the United States. The Russian Embassy in Washington commented on the exercises with great antipathy:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This "collective chest beating" one would expect from a bunch of primates in Africa or Asia; not civilized countries, alleging that they are waging these exercises "in the cause of "peace"; Putin is no fool, and knows better.

US Seeks Formal Alliance Similar to NATO with India, Japan and AustraliaAccording to State Department Official Says

Washington’s goal is to get countries in the Indo-Pacific region to work together as a bulwark against ‘a potential challenge from China’, says the US official- He says the four nations are expected to meet in Delhi sometime this autumn

Washington aims to formalise its closer Indo-Pacific defence relations with India, Japan and Australia – also known as “the quad” – into something more closely resembling the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (Nat), a senior US State Department official said on Monday.

The US government’s goal is to get the grouping of four countries and others in the region to work together as a bulwark against “a potential challenge from China” and “to create a critical mass around the shared values and interests of those parties in a manner that attracts more countries in the Indo-Pacific and even from around the world … ultimately to align in a more structured manner”, said Deputy Secretary of State Stephen Biegun.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is a very interesting companion piece, also from globalresearch.ca, titled: US Seeks Anti-China Alliance, Flashpoint Taiwan Strait

I am sure that these nations the US is attempting to "woo" to join this pact, are assessing its pluses and its minuses, vis a via their individual relations withe China.

Video shows police put hood over Black man, pressed him to pavement before asphyxiation death

A Black man died of asphyxiation in March after Rochester, N.Y., police placed a hood over his head and pressed his face into the pavement for two minutes, according to video and records his family released Wednesday.

Police detained Daniel Prude in mid-March after he ran naked through the streets. He died a week later, on March 30, after being taken off life support, The Associated Press reported. The incident occurred months before widespread protests against racism and police brutality began and received public attention only after his family held a news conference Wednesday.

“How did you see him and not directly say, ‘The man is defenseless, buck naked on the ground. He’s cuffed up already. Come on.’ How many more brothers gotta die for society to understand that this needs to stop?” Prude’s brother Joe Prude said Wednesday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

To police nationally in this country; no more choke holds. Due to the drugs in his system, this guy might have been impossible to "talk down" from his drug delirium; but to kill him because of this?!?

This procedure has got to stop in this country, and right the flip now.

For Years, Journalists Cheered Assange’s Abuse. Now They’ve Paved His Path to a US Gulag

Court hearings in Britain over the US administration’s extradition case against Julian Assange begin in earnest next week. The decade-long saga that brought us to this point should appall anyone who cares about our increasingly fragile freedoms.

A journalist and publisher has been deprived of his liberty for 10 years. According to UN experts, he has been arbitrarily detained and tortured for much of that time through intense physical confinement and endless psychological pressure. He has been bugged and spied on by the CIA during his time in political asylum, in Ecuador’s London embassy, in ways that violated his most fundamental legal rights. The judge overseeing his hearings has a serious conflict of interest – with her family embedded in the UK security services – that she did not declare and which should have required her to recuse herself from the case.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Those people who have cheered Assange's abuse, are no journalists; they are simply the bought and paid for shills cheerleading their governments' agendas, nothing more; nothing less.

Israel Attacks Airport in Syria’s Central City of Homs

Continuing Israel’s trend of growing attacks on Syria, the airport in Homs was struck Wednesday. The Syrian state media confirmed the incident, saying they’d intercepted most of the rockets, and limited the attack to material damage without casualties.

The Israeli military declined to comment, saying it was in accordance with policy not to comment on reported Israeli attacks. This has been particularly true in Syria, where almost none of their strikes are officially commented upon.

There is little question that these are Israeli attacks, however. Most such Israeli strikes target Shi’ites, which Israeli media will portray as Iranian whether or not any Iranians are actually involved.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

My big question here, is why Russia is apparently doing nothing to prevent these attacks, when it was invited by the Syrian government to get rid of US funded/trained jihadists (and their allies)?!?

"THEY BACKED US INTO A CORNER" - PARENTS PROTEST MASSACHUSETTS' NEW MANDATORY VACCINATION RULES

SOURCE: ZEROHEDGE
As Massachusetts and Virginia lead the country in a push toward mandatory vaccination for both COVID-19 and the flu (which public health experts worry could exacerbate the current COVID-19 outbreak), a large group of protesters converged outside the Massachusetts State House in Boston, holding signs that read "Unavoidably unsafe," "My child, my choice," "Parents call the shots" and "I am not a threat."

The protest were inspired by an Aug. 19 announcement that influenza immunization will be required for all children ages 6 months or older who are attending Massachusetts child care, pre-school, kindergarten, or K-12 schools.

Activists insisted that "informed and voluntary consent" is a basic human right.

"The flu vaccine should not be a mandate. It should be a choice," Jessica Marchant said during a TV interview.

Others accused state officials of "taking advantage" of the fear caused by the virus.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I suspect that we are going to see a massive surge in home schooling in Massachusetts and Virginia.

TSA TRIES OUT ANOTHER (ILLEGAL) BIOMETRIC “ID VERIFICATION” SYSTEM

SOURCE: PAPERS PLEASE
Today the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) announced that it has launched a “pilot” at Washington National Airport (DCA) of yet another scheme for biometric identification and tracking of domestic air travelers.

The new “touchless ID verification” stations at DCA include a webcam (at top center of photo above) a magnetic-stripe reader (lower left) for drivers licenses and other ID cards, and a photographic scanner for passports (lower right).

Travelers who volunteer to use the new system are directed to insert their drivers license, ID card, or passport into the appropriate reader, stand on a marked spot in front of the webcam, and remove their face mask, so that the image from the ID (or, more likely, from some back-end image database linked to the ID, although that hasn’t been disclosed) and the image from the webcam can be compared by some undisclosed algorithm.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Thank you, I will just drive to my destinations henceforward.

This is not about catching the bad guys; it is about cowing ordinary, law-abiding, everyday citizens, like myself, to accept any degradation in the way in which I am treated by this government, and I, for one, have HAD IT!!!

Driving, even if the destination is far, and we're driving an older car, just got more attractive to me than ever.

U.S. DEBT IS SET TO EXCEED SIZE OF THE ECONOMY FOR YEAR, A FIRST SINCE WORLD WAR II

SOURCE: 365 NEWS
U.S. government debt is on track to exceed the size of the economy for the 12 months ended Sept. 30, a milestone not hit since World War II that has been brought into reach by a giant fiscal response to the coronavirus pandemic.

The Congressional Budget Office is expected to report on Wednesday that federal debt held by the public is projected to reach or exceed 100% of U.S. gross domestic product, the broadest measure of U.S. economic output. That would put the U.S. in the company of a handful of nations with debt loads that exceed their economies, including Japan, Italy and Greece—though investors remain unfazed by the rising red ink.

By another measure, the U.S. passed the mark in the April to June quarter, when government spending surged to combat the new coronavirus and tax revenue plunged. But this would be the first time in more than 70 years for it to do so for the federal government’s full fiscal year.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I don't know about you, but this historic antecedent scares the stuffing out of me!!

WALL STREET’S FELON BANKS TO GO LIVE WITH THEIR OWN STOCK EXCHANGE THIS MONTH

EXTENSIVE CRIMINAL HISTORIES ARE, APPARENTLY, NO BARRIER TO RUNNING A STOCK EXCHANGE IN THE UNITED STATES.
BY PAM MARTENS AND RUSS MARTENS OF WALL STREET ON PARADE.
Members Exchange (MEMX), a brand new stock exchange, has announced that it will begin live trading of select stocks for the first time on September 21 with a full phase-in on September 29.

Criminal histories are, apparently, no barrier to running a stock exchange in the United States to the deeply conflicted way of thinking of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), which issued its approval to operate the exchange on May 5.

Investors in the new stock exchange are some of the most serially-charged Wall Street banks, including JPMorgan, Goldman Sachs, and UBS, along with the hedge fund, Citadel Securities. BlackRock, which is up to its neck in the Federal Reserve’s deeply conflicted bailout programs, is also an investor, as is the high-frequency trading firm, Virtu Financial, and others.

Chicago, Portland, Baltimore – The Things We've Warned About Are Now Starting To Happen Everywhere

Authored by Michael Snyder via TheMostImportantNews.com,

Whether for good or for bad, the United States always sets an example for the rest of the world, and right now people all over the globe are watching violence fill the streets of our major cities. For years, we could all see anger building to extremely dangerous levels in our society, but I think that most Americans never believed that it would actually cause such an eruption. It has been heartbreaking to watch Americans fighting Americans, and I wish that all of our politicians would come together and form a united front in calling for an end to the violence. Instead, they just keep blaming one another, and things just continue to escalate.

And when I use the word “escalate”, I am not exaggerating one bit. There are more than 100,000 gang members living in the city of Chicago today, and according to the FBI, 30 gangs in the city “have made a pact” to shoot any police officer that draws his or her weapon in public…

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The mayors of these cities have abandoned both the good people of their communities, and their police, and need to resign en masse, so that people who will not permit this kind of violence can be voted in, to protect all the people of these cities.

Pompeo Unveils Extensive New Restrictions On Chinese Diplomats In US

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo Wednesday morning announced severe new restrictions on Chinese diplomats in the United States.

He cited that American diplomats in China "face constant barriers to their work" and so Washington is responding in a commensurate way.

"Today, the State Department imposed new requirements on senior PRC diplomats conducting meetings and events in the U.S. We will always advocate for fair treatment of our diplomats abroad," Pompeo introduced.

This includes requiring senior Chinese diplomats working in the US to seek formal approval from the State Department in order to visit any American university campus or meet with local or state government officials.

In a press briefing the top US diplomat cited China's own "opaque approval process" for American diplomatic personnel working in China, which ultimately prevents them from "conducing regular business, attending events, securing meetings, and connecting with the Chinese people."

Since 9/11, The Government's Answer To Every Problem Has Been More Government

Authored by John Whitehead via The Rutherford Institute,

“A government big enough to give you everything you want is a government big enough to take away everything that you have.”

Have you noticed that the government’s answer to every problem is more government—at taxpayer expense—and less individual liberty?

The Great Depression. The World Wars. The 9/11 terror attacks. The COVID-19 pandemic.

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.

"Poisons Regional Peace": Turkey Enraged After US Lifts Decades-Old Arms Embargo On Cyprus

The timing significantly comes amid Turkey's Mediterranean gas exploration standoff with Greece and Cyprus, which this past weekend very nearly resulted in shots fired, as the conflict gets increasingly militarized: the US has announced it will lift a decades-old arms embargo on Cyprus.

For now, the US move will only allow "non-lethal" military items to be exported to EU member Cyprus. US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo relayed the change to Republic of Cyprus President Nicos Anastasiades in a Tuesday phone call.

Pompeo further "reaffirmed US support for a comprehensive settlement to reunify the island" - given the arms embargo was imposed in the first place in 1987 in the hope it would encourage reunification, following Turkey's military invasion and occupation of the northern half of the island since 1974.

President Anastasiades welcomed the temporary sanctions lifting, while predictably Turkey sees it as a direct threat, immediately urging Washington to reverse course:

Australia defends plan to create island quarantine camp

Australia’s government on Thursday defended its plan to send citizens evacuated from the epicenter of China’s novel coronavirus emergency to a remote island used to banish asylum seekers and convicted criminals, despite warnings that that some Australians would prefer to stay in China.

Australia is preparing to send potentially hundreds of its citizens rescued from Hubei province to a quarantine camp on remote Christmas Island. The Indian Ocean island has been used by the government in a widely condemned policy of banishing asylum seekers who attempt to arrive by boat to offshore camps.

Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton said notorious Christmas Island struck the right balance between supporting Australians stranded in China and protecting the wider Australian population from the potentially deadly disease.

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.

Going to Regal Theatres Without A Face Mask

The pretext for their refusal of our entry was that I could not wear a face mask. However, I have a medical exemption from my physician, which is very clearly covered in the executive order on facemasks issued by the South Carolina governor on 8/2/20. The governor’s order clearly states that businesses must honor medical exemptions and may not demand proof of the exemption. Yet as you will see in the video below, the Regal general manager clearly violates this law. He strangely keeps repeating "you must wear a mask, you must wear a mask, you must wear a mask" as I recorded him.

'People we didn't elect are running our country': Murray

Sky News host Paul Murray says when it comes to COVID-19, people nobody elected are running our country.

Mr Murray said under the cover of COVID-19, the health bureaucrats, are not only giving advice, but have been giving elected leaders, not only advice, but permission to make decisions.

In the past week, Australian chief health officers rejected Agriculture Minister David Littleproud’s code allowing agricultural workers to freely cross the border if they needed to do so for work purposes.

“Under cover of COVID, who actually runs the joint has changed,” Mr Murray said.

“We need to tell the people that we elect, that our role is not just as the idiot tax payer, we are the people who want to see our families, who want to mourn our dead, who want to support other businesses, who want to be able to freely move to do our businesses.

“Who is in charge of this country right now.”

Andrews 'must go tonight' after horrible example of 'inexcusable powers': Jones

Sky News host Alan Jones says Daniel Andrews’ grab for power and disdain of accountability has forced Victorians to behaviour designed to re-take their freedoms, as footage emerges of a pregnant woman arrested for ‘incitement’.

“The only person guilty of incitement is the Premier of Victoria,” Mr Jones said.

The Victorian woman was arrested in front of her children on charges of ‘incitement’ after allegedly organising an anti-lockdown protest.

“This woman is a victim of the inexcusable and unlimited powers given to the Victorian police,” Mr Jones said.

“The verbal and intimidatory behaviour towards a pregnant mother is a form of violence the like of which no Australian will tolerate.

“Go Daniel Andrews, and go tonight. Before more damage is done.”

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:

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.

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.

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.”

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.

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.

Amazon spies on staff, fires them by text for not hitting secretive targets, workers 'feel forced to work through pain, injuries' – report

Amazon is famous for its extreme efficiency yet behind the curtain is a crippling culture of surveillance and stress, according to a study by the Open Markets Institute.

The think tank and advocacy group that repeatedly takes companies like Google and Facebook to task warned in the report [PDF] that Amazon's retail side has gone far beyond promoting efficient working and has adopted an almost dystopian level of control over its warehouse workers, firing them if they fail to meet targets that are often kept a secret.

Among the practices it highlighted, the report said that workers are told to hit a target rate of packages to process per hour, though they are not told what exactly that target is. "We don't know what the rate is," one pseudonymous worker told the authors. "They change it behind the scenes. You'll know when you get a warning. They don't tell you what rate you have to hit at the beginning."

“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.

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.

Tunisia To Bypass Politicians, Appoint Technocrats Instead

Tunisian Prime Minister-Designate Hichem Mechichi has proposed a cabinet of technocrats without allegiance to any political parties, in an effort to solve an impasse in the country’s politics.

Mechichi barely met the deadline to present his new cabinet. A press briefing at midnight on Monday ensured his cabinet was submitted just before the deadline on Tuesday.

Mechichi has attempted to circumvent Tunisia’s entrenched political divisions by proposing a cabinet of technocrats with no representation from any political parties. In the midnight press briefing, he stated that he aimed to use a non-political cabinet to accelerate economic development and improve social support for Tunisians.

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.

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. And incredibly irresponsible. But no one should ever confuse Democrats with rationality or doing what is best for anything or anyone but themselves.

No sports, no school and it’s ALL Trump’s fault, according to new Biden campaign ad, but didn’t he just say he’d lock down the ENTIRE COUNTRY for Covid?

Oh yes he did. Biden and his camp of crazed communists just ran an advertisement blaming Trump for there being no sports and no kids in classrooms, after Biden literally just finished preaching that he would listen to the scientists and lock down the entire country on house arrest until Covid is completely defeated. Oh the irony.

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.

Tomato gardeners: The latest victim in the government’s war on drugs

Backyard gardeners, beware: tomato plants have become collateral damage in the government’s war on drugs, especially marijuana.

In fact, merely growing a vegetable garden on your own property, or in a greenhouse on your property, or shopping at a gardening store for gardening supplies—incredibly enough—could set you up for a drug raid sanctioned by the courts.

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.

American Bombs Have Killed Hundreds of Civilians, Including Children, in Unlawful Strikes on Yemen: Report

Mr. Secretary, this has to stop; and while I cannot personally stop it, the only true power I have, as a Christian Pacifist Activist, who never advocates violence, is to witness to the ultimate consequences of selling these weapons to a government which defiles its own humanity by assassinating, and wounding innocent babies, toddlers, women, and the medically fragile elderly.
