Canada Pays Hush Money To Silence MKULTRA Victim's Daughter - #NewWorldNextWeek - corbettreport

Iraq Threatens to Resume Invasion of Kurdish Territory

The Iraqi military offensive against Iraqi Kurdistan has been on pause since Friday, but may soon be resuming, according to Iraqi Joint Operations Command, who are accusing the Kurds of using the ceasefire talks to “buy time.”

Iraqi officials say the Kurds are in particular delaying the transfer of control of border crossings between Iraqi Kurdistan and Iran, Syria, and Turkey. Iraq ordered all crossings closed and all flights banned out of Kurdish airports.

They believe the Kurds are trying to hold off on any more concessions while keeping the talks going, to give the Peshmerga time to set up new defenses, and some Iraqi officials seem keen to just resume the offensive and take more territory.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

We may well be looking at a new civil war in Iraq, between the Kurds and the Iraqi military here.

Gitmo judge sends Marine general lawyer to 21 days confinement for disobeying orders

The USS Cole case judge Wednesday found the Marine general in charge of war court defense teams guilty of contempt for refusing to follow the judge’s orders and sentenced him to 21 days confinement and to pay a $1,000 fine.

Air Force Col. Vance Spath also declared “null and void” a decision by Marine Brig. Gen. John Baker, 50, to release three civilian defense attorneys from the capital terror case. The lawyers resigned last month over a covert breach of attorney-client privilege involving something so secretive at the terror prison that the public cannot know.

Wednesday evening, with Baker confined to his quarters in a trailer park behind the courthouse, Judge Spath issued another order: Directing the three lawyers — Rick Kammen, Rosa Eliades and Mary Spears — to litigate Friday in the death-penalty case against Abd al Rahim al Nashiri remotely from the Washington D.C., area by video feed to Guantánamo.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

All of which leads me to the speculation; was this guy, perchance, a patsy, to be crucified legally, then executed for something he absolutely did not do?!?

This very brazen show of force by Judge Spath against Baker does not speak very highly of the judicial process going on here, and that Spath wants to see his "orders" followed through to a lightning-quick death penalty conviction of al Nashiri, before some new evidence might be presented, which could possibly unravel the case to the point of no return, just makes me wonder.

Why Medieval Cats Approved of the Plague

From the 12th century onward there were two distinct attitudes to cats. For many people the cat population operated as important rodent-controllers, and every so often a cat would go beyond being a mere working animal and become a welcome pet inside the house. Working cats and house cats were always popular, but now a negative attitude began to run alongside the friendly one. For some people, the cat was now seen as an evil animal, in league with the Devil. For them, the cat needed to be persecuted if Satan and his followers were to be defeated.

In the following century Pope Gregory IX added his voice to the campaign against the evil cat. He was intent on stamping out a sect of Devil-worshippers in Germany who involved black cats in their rituals.
Webmaster addition: This is what allowed the rats whose fleas carryied the Black Plague to run rampant across Europe.

3 WAYS THE NYC TERRORIST ATTACK PROVES THE ‘WAR ON TERROR’ IS A FAILURE AND SIMPLY PROPAGANDA

A truck attack in New York City that killed eight people on Tuesday is now being hailed the “Deadliest Terrorist Attack in New York Since 9/11,” after the suspect reportedly pledged allegiance to ISIS and left a note at the scene. But there are a few glaring reminders that the War on Terror should have prevented the latest “lone-wolf” attack to be sensationalized by the mainstream media.

Saipov was not a Syrian refugee, and he was not an illegal immigrant. If he did have connections to ISIS, then the elaborate billion-dollar mass surveillance industry used by the U.S. government to spy on innocent citizens should have picked up on the red flags.

Although the U.S. has restricted travel and attempted to place even stricter bans on countries such as Iraq, Syria, Libya, Somalia and Yemen—all nations where the U.S. has conducted illegal drone strikes and killed innocent civilians—it seems to have completely missed Uzbekistan.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is absolutely no secret, to those who are paying attention, that the US has been funding and training ISIS members in Syria, as an attempt to destabiliize the country.

America created al Qaeda and the Isis Terror Group

TWITTER ADMITS IT BURIED "PODESTA EMAIL", DNC TWEETS AHEAD OF THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION

It was approximately one year ago, when angry tweeters alleged that Jack Dorsey et al., were purposefully censoring and "suppressing" certain content on Twitter, namely anything to do with the leaked DNC and John Podesta emails, as well as hashtags critical of Hillary Clinton while "shadow-banning" pro-Donald Trump content. We can now confirm that at least one part of the above was true, because during today's Senate hearing, Twitter admitted it "buried", which is another word for censored, significant portions of tweets related to hacked emails from the Democratic National Committee and Clinton campaign chair John Podesta in the months heading into the 2016 presidential campaign.

As Daily Caller's Peter Hasson reports, Twitter’s systems hid 48 percent of tweets using the #DNCLeak hashtag and 25 percent of tweets using #PodestaEmails, Twitter general counsel Sean Edgett said in his written testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Suppressing the truth?!?

Now, why would Twitter ever do a thing like that?!?!?

VIDEO OF NYC TERRORIST INSTANTLY RELEASED—STILL NO VIDEO OF VEGAS SHOOTER DESPITE 1000S OF CAMERAS

Tuesday afternoon, a suspect, identified as Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov, according to two law enforcement sources, rented a pickup truck, drove it onto a busy bicycle path and mowed down innocent people before getting out and brandishing toy guns. Almost immediately after the horrific attack that left 8 dead and a dozen more injured, video of Saipov, an Uzbekistan native, was released.

There were multiple videos, taken from multiple angles showing the attacker flee the truck and run through traffic.

From @marygeorgant on scene: Tawhid Kabir, 20, took this video on Snapchat of possible suspect in NYC existing truckhttps://t.co/B1n6dyqemf pic.twitter.com/GOW3EAFr0w

— Tom Namako (@TomNamako) October 31, 2017

Police eventually caught Saipov, who they say is a “lone wolf” attacker. Nearly as fast as the video was released, so were the declarations that this attack was “an act of terrorism.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And now, we have the following "gem", courtesy of Matt Agorist at blalcklisted news, which is interestingly telling in that the FBI interviewed this guy two years ago:

The FBI interviewed this man two years before the terror attack in New York

So, what do we have here?!? A coverup?!? An attempt to get the independent media misdirected and distracted from Uranium One and Dossiergate?!?

That would be my suspicion.

ISRAELI COMPANIES IN TALKS TO INVEST IN SAUDI ARABIA’S “SMART CITY”

Several Israeli companies are in talks with the Public Investment Fund of Saudi Arabia about business opportunities in the Kingdom’s new “smart city”, according to documents obtained by the Jerusalem Post.

The Israeli daily claims to have seen correspondence confirming economic cooperation between Arab diplomats and businessmen in Tel Aviv; Israeli firms will reportedly be competing under the table for billion-dollar contracts from the Saudi government.

“The Saudis are not so willing to cooperate with the Israelis formally, but … it’s much easier to create all kinds of cooperation on water, energy, ag-tech, food tech. This is the stuff that the prince of Saudi Arabia [Mohammed Bin Salman] wants to promote in the smart city,” said a source in Israeli venture capital who is familiar with the project.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Looks as though there will be a lot of money to be made in this Smart City concept.

THE MEN WHO KILLED KENNEDY

The Men Who Killed Kennedy is a 9-part video documentary series about the John F. Kennedy assassination that has been sent to the memory hole. In particular because of the last 3 episodes, and the information that came to light from them. In light of the JFK Files being released and discussed in more public forums, I decided to blow the dust off of this series and republish all nine parts. Some of the information that has come to light publicly in the release of the JFK Files was exposed and discussed in this series.

Cost of US Nuclear Arsenal Rehaul Continues to Surge, Now Estimated at $1.2 Trillion

For years, US officials have been talking up the importance of a massive rehaul of the American nuclear weapons arsenal, insisting it is necessary despite the substantial expense. Analysts have long warned the estimated costs were underrated.

Every time the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) looks into the matter, they come up with an even higher estimated cost than the last time. The latest report to Congress has put the overall cost at in excess of $1.2 trillion over 30 years.

The CBO was unusually frank about this cost, saying it is “unlikely to be affordable” without military cuts elsewhere. Since the US is fighting multiple wars constantly, cuts in military spending tend not to happen.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As long as we have one homeless Vet, sleeping rough in our streets; our infrastructure crumbling; and our alleged education system producing consistently sub-standard results, this program is way to expensive at any cost!!

HOUSE DEMOCRATIC WHIP RESISTS EFFORT TO END U.S. INVOLVEMENT IN YEMEN WAR

THE BIPARTISAN PUSH to end U.S. support for the Saudi-led war in Yemen has gained political momentum but faces resistance from the No. 2 Democratic lawmaker in the House, Rep. Steny Hoyer, D-Md.

H.Con.Res.81, the resolution sponsored by Reps. Ro Khanna, D-Calif.; Walter Jones, R-N.C.; Mark Pocan, D-Wisc.; Tom Massie, R-Ky.; and 34 other lawmakers, utilizes a provision of the War Powers Act to swiftly terminate U.S. military assistance for the Saudi-led war effort.

Several activists working to build support for the measure have told The Intercept that Republican caucus leaders and Hoyer, the minority whip, are pressuring lawmakers to avoid sponsoring the legislation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder; just how much is Democratic Minority Whip Hoyer invested in the US military industrial complex, which is making beacoup bucks on this carnage in Yemen?!?

Is he morally comfortable with the US government military and government colluding in Saudi war crimes in Yemen, where children are assassinated and maimed for life; starving and dying from malnutrition and now dying of (most probably weaponised) cholera?!?

The short answer has to be, hell yes!! Burnt, dead babies, he's for 'em!! (to paraphrase Bob Newhart)

But to be perfectly serious, this position on the part of Representative Hoyer cannot really be a surprise to anyone.

After all, the mandatory procedure required of all Congressional Representatives, before taking their Oath of Office, is a surgical excision ...of their conscience.

Senate Bill Aims to Stop Trump Nuking North Korea

A new bill making its way through the Senate, co-sponsored by seven Democrats and independent Sen. Bernie Sanders (I – VT), aims to prevent President Trump following through on his threat to “totally destroy” North Korea by explicitly forbidding a US attack.

The bill would forbid any preemptive nuclear strikes on North Korea, or spending any money on any military strike against North Korea, without prior Congressional authorization. It would not apply if North Korea attacks first.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Given the current make up of Congress, one would imagine the odds of this actaually passing are that of a snowball surviving in hell.

“Conspiracies don’t happen….here.”

These are all, by definition, conspiracy theories – but they are also all things done by the other. Conspiracies happen over there. They are done by the bad guys. We don’t do them.

….except of course, when we do.

Two years ago, the idea that the US, Saudi Arabia, Israel and others had created ISIS as front for a proxy war on Syria was dismissed as a “conspiracy theory”. It has since been proven, many times over, to be completely true. That ISIS are US proxies is not a “conspiracy theory”, but a conspiracy fact.

Trick or Treat: One Year Later, Is Trump a Blessing or a Curse to the Deep State?

Here’s the question I pose to you: has Donald Trump been a blessing or a curse to the architects of the American police state?

One thing is for sure: a year into his presidency, Trump hasn’t done much to improve the lot of the American people.

In other words, the American police state is still alive and well and flourishing.

Nothing has changed.

Rather than draining the corrupt swamps of Washington, as he repeatedly promised, Trump and his brand of reality TV politics have merely redirected our attention.

Trust me, the swamps are still stagnant with corruption.

Mattis: White House Could Order Nuclear Strike if North Korean Attack ‘Imminent

During his testimony before Congress, US Defense Secretary James Mattis said that the White House has “rehearsed” their response to a North Korean nuclear attack. He added that Washington would fire a nuclear weapon at North Korea for two reasons: a North Korean attack, or a “direct imminent... attack.”

Mattis told Congress that he, the president and other key players had rehearsed their response to a nuclear strike — and the threshold of provocation that would lead the US to fire their own nuclear device. That, according to Mattis, would be "a direct imminent or actual attack."

Sen. Jim Risch (R-ID) asked Mattis what would happen if the US detected a nuclear launch. Matties replied that "the first step, of course, would be that our ballistic missile defense forces at sea and in Alaska, California — the various radars would be feeding in and they would do — they would do what they're designed to do as we make every effort to take [the missile] out."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Were I a member of Congress, I would want a lot more detail on what constitutes, both for President Trump, and Sec Def Mattis, evidence of "...a direct imminent attack." What would the measure of proof have to be that such a thing is happening?!?

And when Mattis makes that statement '"the first step, of course, would be that our ballistic missile defense forces at sea and in Alaska, California — the various radars would be feeding in and they would do — they would do what they're designed to do as we make every effort to take it [the missile] out.", does not broadcast a real sence of certainty that our ballistic missile system actually works as advertised to the American people.

THIS IS MUCH MORE SINISTER THAN JUST GENERATION SNOWFLAKE

"The society was told that Mr Etheridge’s talk about Libertarianism and free speech had been deemed “medium/high risk” and so was only allowed to go ahead if it complies with a series of measures “to ensure the safety of the speaker and of students”. These included submitting a list of topics that will be discussed, as well as an advance copy of the speech so it can be checked to see if it complies with the students’ union’s “zero tolerance” and “safe space” policies."

WikiLeaks Legally Obtained Clinton Emails From US State Dept.

The emails of former US presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, published by the WikiLeaks whistleblowing platform in 2016, were not hacked but legally obtained from the US State Department, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange said.

"The 'thousands of Clinton emails' WikiLeaks published were not hacked but obtained from the U.S. State Department via the Freedom of Information Act ion 3 March 2016," Assange wrote on Twitter.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So... there you have it!!

Trump Administration Will Defend Cuba Embargo In Symbolic UN Vote

A series of mysterious sonic attacks on US diplomatic personnel (and more than a few spies) working at Washington’s Havana embassy have provided ample justification for the White House to reverse the US-Cuba detente negotiated by the Obama administration. And in a gesture that - though it has no implications for policy - is considered symbolically important, the State Department said Thursday the US will defend America’s decades-old economic embargo on Cuba by voting against a UN resolution condemning it, the Associated Press reported.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This action is so petulantly stupid on the part of the American government, that I can barely believe that President Trump is signing off on this.

Does he even know this is happening?!? After all, he didn't know that we had troops in Niger, until the ambush happened there; but... I digress.

The US is now trading with Vietnam, a communist country at which the US government was at war in the 60s. Why not Cuba?!? Why not let an exchange of ideas happen?!? What is the problem here?!?

3 LAS VEGAS SURVIVORS HAVE MYSTERIOUSLY DIED LESS THAN A MONTH SINCE THE ATTACK

Nearly one month after the Las Vegas shooting, three of the individuals who attended the Route 91 Harvest music festival have lost their lives—but the circumstances that led up their deaths had nothing to do with injuries they sustained during the shooting.

There is still an endless number of questions surrounding how the Las Vegas Shooting unfolded, the history of the suspected shooter, the response from law enforcement, and why evidence such as the hotel’s surveillance footage has yet to be released.

Now, as the families of hundreds of victims search for answers, the families of Dennis and Lorraine Carver and Kymberley Suchomel are left searching for answers about why their loved ones died, and if their deaths had any connections to the horrific massacre they witnessed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What did these people have in common, that they knew/intuited/witnessed that led to their assassination, post-shooting massacre?!?

These are very uncomfortable question; but now, the Los Vegas Police Department refuses to disclose any more information on the shootings:

Authorities Putting the Brakes on Information Flow in Las Vegas Shootings

Why?!? Because the official narrative, such as it was, is falling apart at the seams?!?

PENTAGON TO KEEP AFGHAN WAR ‘PROGRESS’ METRICS SECRET

For the last 16 years, the Pentagon’s “progress” in the occupation of Afghanistan has been measured by officials through multiple different statistics, and one most often cited has been the size of the Afghan military. Those numbers have struggled recently, with Afghanistan not recruiting well nor retaining its recruits. So that’s not a metric anymore.

At least not as far as the public narrative is concerned. The Pentagon has announced that they have decided to make the size of the Afghan military, previously a very public part of their quarterly report, classified information.

The Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR) John Sopko, regularly critical of secrecy in Afghanistan, noted that “The Afghans know what’s going on, the Taliban knows what’s going on, the US military knows what’s going on. The only people who don’t know what’s going on are the people paying for it.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Could this secrecy possibly be.... because there is no discernible "progress" in Afghanistan, 16 years on?!?

"But at least, we are not losing!" - Official Pentagon Souce.

Maryland’s Governor Larry Hogan Accused of “McCarthyism”

On October 23, 2017, surrounded in the State House by members of the Israel Lobby, he signed an Executive Order blocking the state of Maryland from awarding contracts to businesses that support boycotts of Israel.

According to Michael Brown, writing for “Popular Resistance,” on October 26: “Activists in Maryland have twice beaten back efforts to pass such an anti-BDS measure through the state legislature.”[1]

So, is Governor Hogan trying to do an end run around the Legislature by using the powers of his office? Keep in mind, he is acting on behalf of the interest of a foreign power – Israel – which he didn’t mention in his remarks.

Trump Appoints Zionist Zealot to Top Civil Rights Post

Kenneth Marcus will head the Education Department’s Office of Civil Rights.

Formerly, he was staff director at the US Commission on Civil Rights under GW Bush.

He founded and heads the Louis D. Brandeis Center for Human Rights Under Law, a Washington-based NGO, seeking “to advance the civil and human rights of the Jewish people and to promote justice for all,” it claims.

It shamefully calls anti-Semitism and “anti-Israelism” on university campuses the “leading civil and human rights challenge facing North American Jewry.”

It’s silent about longstanding Israeli high crimes of war and against humanity, its ruthless persecution of illegally occupied Palestinians, and its own Arab citizens.

Tillerson: US Troops Will Stay in Iraq Even If Asked to Leave

Testifying to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson revealed that the US presence in Iraq is so permanent at this point that even if Iraq specifically requests the US withdraw and removes permission for them to be there, the US will remain.

It does bring up the question of US troops’ legal immunity from war crimes in places like Syria, where they’ve been deployed without permission or any assurances that they won’t be held liable for killings.

Silenced by the PC police: Majority of Americans think discussion has been destroyed by political correctness and 58 per cent are too afraid to share their political views, especially Republicans

A new survey by the Cato Institute shows that most Americans no longer feel comfortable talking about their political beliefs.

According to the survey, 71 per cent of Americans 'believe that political correctness has silenced important discussions our society needs to have.'

Meanwhile, 58 per cent of Americans believe the 'political climate prevents them from sharing their political beliefs'.

The survey found that Democrats are more open with their political views than Republicans.

A slim majority, 53 per cent, said they do not feel the need to self-censor. The majority of Republicans and Independents on the other hand (73 per cent and 58 per cent respectively) said 'they keep some of their political beliefs to themselves'.

Cato's 2017 Free Speech and Tolerance Survey posed their questions to 2,300 adults across the country.

Informants – High paid work

“Freeway” Rick Ross says there are informants who make as much as $5 million a year. That’s an extreme of course, but incomes of $50,000 to $200,000 a year are not unusual. And it’s all tax free.

There’s another side to it.

In a town near me, the Chief of Detectives was arrested for flat out stealing money from the informant budget. No one was auditing him. He claimed to paying informants and just pocketed the money. He got three well deserved years in prison for that.

SECRET 1984 SURVEILLANCE MEMO TO REMAIN SECRET

A federal judge backed the government on its withholding of a 1984 memo that purportedly details the constitutionality of a National Security Agency surveillance program.

Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times correspondent Charlie Savage brought the underlying complaint in Washington after filing a Freedom of Information Act request with the Office of Legal Counsel in October 2016.

The request, which the office did not answer within statutory deadlines, sought a memo by former Assistant Attorney General Theodore Olson on the constitutionality of conducting surveillance not mentioned in the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.

Paul Craig Roberts - The Kennedy Assassination

Dear Readers, some of you are pushing me to continue with the Las Vegas shooting story while others are asking to know what to make of the release of files pertaining to President Kennedy’s assassination. I appreciate that you are interested and are unsatisfied with official explanations.

My answer is that we already know, thanks to exhaustively researched books such as James W. Douglass’ JFK and the Unspeakable (Simon & Schuster, 2008), far more than is in the released files.

My answer is also that it doesn’t matter what we know or what the facts are, the official story will never be changed.

JFK Jr. Told The World Who Murdered His Father – But Nobody Was Paying Attention

“As President, John F. Kennedy understood the predatory nature of private central banking. He understood why Andrew fought so hard to end the Second Bank of the United States. So Kennedy wrote and signed Executive Order 11110 which ordered the US Treasury to issue a new public currency, the United States Note.

Kennedy was working with President Soekarno of Indonesia who was at that time the signatory for the Global Collateral Accounts which were intended to be used for humanitarian purposes but which were subverted at the time of the Bretton-Woods agreement at the end of WWII.

The intention of Kennedy and Soekarno was to end the reign of the globalist privately owned central banking system – which is the main reason that Kennedy was killed, and for his part Soekarno remained under house arrest for the rest of his life.” From: All Wars Are Bankers’ Wars

Rose McGowan facing arrest warrant for alleged drug possession

An arrest warrant was issued Monday for actress Rose McGowan for alleged felony possession of a controlled substance on a flight earlier this year, police said.

McGowan, who has been one of the leading voices against sexual harassment in Hollywood, faces a felony charge after police said an investigation revealed that her personal belongings left behind on a United flight back in January tested positive for narcotics.

McGowan claimed Monday in a tweet that the warrant was an attempt to “silence” her.

Dishonest Columnist, Do Us All a Favor & STFU on Guns

You see it in columns, editorials, and letters to the editor, TV commentary, etc. The claim supposedly giving the writer or speaker some moral authority over the rest of America’s 100 MILLION plus, gun owners by the fact he/she supposedly “grew up around guns.” -- Big f#@&ing deal. Yay for you and the white horse you rode in on Tonto. (Oh, I hope I didn’t offend any Indians…oops, I meant to say Native Americans…Oh wait, I was born here, I’m a Native American. You get the idea!) If in fact you did “grow up around guns,” then you’re well aware of how they are used safely, proficiently and lawfully by millions of other Americans every single day, for all those things you did with them while you were growing up. That would also include hundreds, if not thousands of cases of self-defense. I’m not here to give you a pass anymore, whacko.

37 Percent Rate Increase In 2018??? Obamacare Is Imploding And It Must Be Repealed Now!

Are you ready to pay 37 percent more for health insurance in 2018? Obamacare is imploding faster than most of us imagined, and these rate increases are absolutely killing hard working middle class families all across the country. I wrote about the steady erosion of the middle class yesterday, and health insurance is one of the main reasons why the cost of living is increasing at a much faster rate than our paychecks are. It greatly frustrates me that we have given the Republicans control of the White House, the Senate and the House of Representatives and Obamacare still has not been repealed. The truth is that should have happened on day one of the Trump presidency.

Neocon Killers – They hijack Trump’s Syria policy, says Ron Paul

Haven’t we done enough damage in Syria? Do we really need to go back to 2011 and destroy the country all over again? The neocons never admit a mistake and never change course, but I do not believe that the majority of Americans support their hijacking of President Trump’s Syria policy. It is long past time for the US to leave Syria alone. No bases, no special forces, no CIA assassination teams, no manipulating their electoral system. We need to just come home.

DECLASSIFIED DOCS SHOW NSA TRYING TO PROSECUTE A JOURNALIST FOR HIS SUCCESSFUL FOIA REQUESTS

MuckRock has been digging into a large pile of declassified CIA documents for the past several months and has come up with some surprising finds. It recently liberated nearly 13 million pages of CIA documents -- known as the CREST archive-- via a FOIA lawsuit. Since this monumental release, MuckRock has covered everything from a CIA report on an Italian pasta shortage to deeper, darker topics like a CIA asset in Mexico being linked to a long list of atrocities.

Digging through the CIA's archives has dug up dirt on other agencies as well. Emma Best details another MuckRock/CIA gem -- one that shows the NSA attempting to prosecute a journalist for obtaining documents via FOIA requests.

Trump Dossier: Democrats Rocked by Another Clinton Scandal

Former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee allegedly funded political research into President Donald Trump that led to the production of a dossier alleging ties to Russia among other stories, in what appears to be a calculated smear campaign.

Mrs. Clinton has yet to comment however, suggesting her legitimacy as a politician has finally come to an end.

Sputnik's Dan Rowell spoke to investigative journalists 'Lionel' and Dave Lindorff about what they think the Clinton camp's and President Trump's reaction to the scandal will be.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It's very simple; Secretary of State Clinton sold out her country; she and Bill pocketed millions from the deal; and she, and all who surrounded, and approved the deal, should be tried for treason.

North Korea Prepares For World War 3 With Mass Evacuation And Blackout Drills Conducted Across The Country: Mac Slavo

The rogue nation of North Korea is bracing itself for World War 3. The country has now undergone mass evacuation and blackout drills designed to ready the public for a war.

Although the drills were not conducted in the capital city of Pyongyang, the North Korean government had many other cities practice evacuations and “blackout” drills. Blackout drills are designed to disguise the people from enemy aircraft in the event of a war by minimizing the lighting. With tensions sky-high between the United States and North Korea, the ultra-secretive country reportedly staged the training in towns and cities throughout the nation last week.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I think that the better question is, what does the US government and military have planned against North Korea, via some kind of false flag, to be blamed against it?!?

Let's look at the timing here; President Trump is headed for a 12 day visit to Asia, beginning Saturday, 4 November, with a reasonable hunk of time as the guest of China's Xi Jinping. He returns to the US about 16 November, right before the Thanksgiving day holiday here in the US.

Although some talk will be devoted to North Korea, I think that the biggest topic of conversation will be China's entrance into the Petroyuan program, through which it will price oil in the yuan, potentially knocking off the edge the petrodollar has held for years against foreign currencies. IF President Trump is unable to convince Xi Jinping to at least delay this, we might, at the end of this calendar year, see a trade war morphing ultimately into a shooting war with China.

Meanwhile, the US has 3 carrier groups off the North Korean Peninsula, and this activity which has Kim Jung Un upset to the point where he is characterising their presence there as "criminal". There is no specific end date to their exercizes.

North Korea accuses US of criminal moves as carriers operate nearby"

Meanwhile, Chinese scientists have urged Korean nuclear experts, not to test at the site of their previous tests, because previous nuclear tests have made the ground unstable.

Chinese scientis warn their North Korean counterparts that their test site is unstable

Understanding this problem, we do not know if the North Koreans have dug out another launch site or not; if this has not happened, one would have to imagine that construction on such a site must be running 24/7, to enable North Korea to resume its missile testing.

I would suggest that once President Trump is confirmed as being back in US airspace, after his visits in China and Asia, the US might create some kind of missile launch to be blamed on North Korea, as the "justification" as an attack against it; false flags are a very common tool of US statescraft in the 20th and 21st century.

But the trick will be insuring that China does not enter the war on the side of North Korea, as they claim they will do, IF the US fires the first shot here. China warns Trump:
we will back North Korea of US Strikes First

None of the options here are great; but a major war would be a catastrophe here, and for everyone.

U.S. Bans Entry of South Korean Activists Opposed to Trump’s War on North Korea

Fourteen members of the Fellowship of South Korean Youth — calling themselves the “Ban Trump’s Crazy Action” (BTC) delegation — were stopped at Incheon airport on October 25 and prevented from boarding their planes to the United States, where they had planned to protest Trump’s war threats in Korea. The group, which had planned to visit New York, Washington DC, and Los Angeles to demand an end to U.S. sanctions and war threats against North Korea, was turned away despite having acquired proper documentation to visit the United States.

The members of the delegation were told by the United Airline staff that there were problems with their visas. When the delegation asked for an explanation, they were told,

“You need to find out why from the U.S. Embassy in Seoul. Due to privacy concerns, we cannot release any information.”

Following their entry denial, the BTC delegation held a press briefing at Incheon Airport. One representative of the delegation stated,

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF one knows tht one's potential actions are right, honorable, and true, concerning a potential war against a potential enemy, how do you treat kids like this with a difference of opinion?!?

The short answer is, you don't.

I don't know if the Trump administration was, at all, thinking about that, but the optics jhere are just really lousy; how in the world can this government be so terrified at protests from South Korean school kids?!?

Jewish War on Free Speech

We begin this week’s edition of the ‘Jewish War on Free Speech’ with the news that following intense jewish pressure; social media giant Twitter has begun an increased crackdown on ‘hate’ – specifically against jews – on its platform (1) and jews are predictably egging them on through the media by highlighting specific types of so-called ‘hate’ that they wanted removed. (2)

Facebook (3) and Steam (4) are under similar pressure from the Israel Lobby and jewish journalists respectively (although Israeli has already been actively censoring Facebook for some time now), (5) while the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai Brith’s leader Jonathan Greenblatt has been in Cleveland trying to stir up a witch-hunt against so-called ‘anti-Semites’ (6) and the Times of Israel has been attempting to do the same.

Mattis: US Will Never Accept Nuclear North Korea Says North Korea 'Reducing Its Security'

Visiting South Korea this weekend, Defense Secretary James Mattis said they he doesn’t believe the United States would ever, under any circumstances, accept a nuclear North Korea, saying that the reclusive state which is constantly under threat of US attack should disarm.

Mattis claimed that North Korea’s attempts to improve its retaliatory capabilities are “counter-productive” and that North Korea is “reducing its security” by trying to deter oft-threatened US attacks.

North Korea has been very clear on the matter, saying their goal is to reach a point where their nuclear arsenal is capable enough that a preemptive US attack would be unthinkable. They’ve also downplayed the chances of disarming, noting that disarmament programs in Iraq and Libya led relatively quickly to an American attack.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Sec Def Mattis, a word, please; do you not understand that the optics of your "logic" give North Korea no choice but to continue in creating a nuclear deterrent so intense that war against it is unthinkable?!?

And no, sir, North Korea's attempt to improve its retaliatory capabilities are NOT counter productive, but the children of necessity, in Kim Jung Un's perspective.

What Pyongyang wants is a peace treaty, with ironclad guarantees about trade, unsanctioned, and uninhibited, with the quid pro quo being their stopping of their nuclear development program in return for that.

OF course, what the US government has just done with the Iranian P5+1 deal, in its decertification of the agreement, isn't going to make Kim believe anything the US government has to say for many years to come; but of course, you had to know that was coming, right?!?!?

A Red Scare in the Gray Zone

The United States isn’t alone in fielding a large contingent of special operations forces. The U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency estimates that Russia’s Spetsnaz (“special purpose”) troops number around 30,000, a sizeable force, although less than half the size of America’s contingent of commandos. Russia, SOCOM’s Thomas told members of the Senate Armed Services Committee earlier this year, is “particularly adept at leveraging unconventional approaches to advancing their interests and it is clear they are pursuing a wide range of audacious approaches to competition – SOF [special operations forces] often present a very natural unconventional response.”

REVEALED: Shock strategy Brussels will use to LURE member-states into EU army

A GERMAN MEP has outlined how the EU will push through its plans to build its own army - by encouraging member states to "save money" by handing over control of military affairs.

The European Union will persuade other member-states to join Jean-Claude Juncker's plan for a bloc-wide army by grounding it in "economic efficiency".

Jo Leinen, a German MEP, dropped the shock revelation yesterday, claiming the policy of national armies "cannot continue" for much longer.

It comes as Donald Tusk, the European Council President, plans to set up an EU army by the end of the year to fight back against “destabilisation around Europe”.

A GERMAN MEP has outlined how the EU will push through its plans to build its own army - by encouraging member states to "save money" by handing over con

Jo Leinen calls for more efficiency of Brussels' spending

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Could someone please explain to me how these members of the EU are defining "destabilization around Europe"?!?

Because to the intelligent, casual observer, Europe is suffering the self-inflicted wound of allowing unchecked immigration to flood European countries to the point where social services cannot cope.

These immigrants do not want to assimilate; they want to take the traditions of their own failed coutries, like sharia law, and impose them on Europe.

They have no job skills, and when they learn those skills, are given preferential job-seeking status above that granted to native born Europeans.

Rape, and genital mutilation, are common forms of treatment of women among these immigrants.

So I am at least more than a little perplexed as to precisely how the establishment of a European army is in any way, going to fix this, except, perhaps, for pressing these immigrants into such a military, so that Europe can conquer their countries of origin militarily, and then, economically.

Look at the countries mentioned in this article: Mali, Central African Republic, and Somalia,all just chock full of natural resources European companies would love to exploit, and over which citizens of these countries have the bad taste to be living; how economically rude!!

Putin’s revenge may see petro-yuan replace petrodollar

The key to the coming petro-yuan lies in Moscow. And, if the Chinese currency eventually succeeds in usurping the long-standing petrodollar, Washington will only have itself to blame.

News that China plans to launch a yuan-denominated oil futures contract by the end of this year has come as a surprise to many analysts. However, Russia experts aren’t startled in the slightest because this move has been coming since Moscow abandoned its quarter-century attempt to integrate with the West, following the 2014 Ukraine crisis. A catastrophe which the Kremlin blames on the United States and the European Union, as part of what it considers to be an attempt to reduce Russian influence in its "near abroad.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF, in fact, the PetroYuan comes into being before the end of this year, expect a major, US-generated war to prevent it from coming into being.

President Trump leaves for a 12 day trip to Asia this coming Friday, 3 November; he should be back by the 15th of November. IF he is unable to get any assistance from China on North Korea, and no concessions on any delay in the development of this currency, we may will be looking at a trade war with China, which hots up to a an actual shooting war shortly after, say the first part of 2018.

I wish I could be more positive about the future outcome for this country; unfortunately, through a lousy combination of reckless spending, coupled with picking wars it could not possibly win, the Occupied, Unhinged,Surveilled State of America, has brought this outcome on itself.

The development of such a currency will spell the KOD (Kiss of Death) for the US petrodollar, which is backed by utterly nothing tangible.

FORMER QATAR PRIME MINISTER: QATAR, SAUDI ARABIA, TURKEY, AND USA COLLUDED AND COORDINATED TO FUND AL QAEDA AND DESTROY SYRIA

Via Zerohedge…

A television interview of a top Qatari official confessing the truth behind the origins of the war in Syria is going viral across Arabic social media during the same week a leaked top secret NSA document was published which confirms that the armed opposition in Syria was under the direct command of foreign governments from the early years of the conflict.

And according to a well-known Syria analyst and economic adviser with close contacts in the Syrian government, the explosive interview constitutes a high level “public admission to collusion and coordination between four countries to destabilize an independent state, [including] possible support for Nusra/al-Qaeda.” Importantly, “this admission will help build case for what Damascus sees as an attack on its security & sovereignty. It will form basis for compensation claims.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So.... the US/Qatar/Saudi Arabian/Turkish war against Syria.... had absolutely zero basis in fact, only in propaganda: why am I not surprised?!?!?

And to those in the US alphabet soup agencies reading this, please understand: the American people now know that they are lied to, on a consistent basis, by their government, so they have stopped believing... and stopped listening to... the corporate presstitutes, dutifully regurgitating government propaganda, engineered to further the US Deep State Agenda.

This, primarily, is about engineering complete, hegemonic control of planetary resources; expropriating those resources to which this government, and the corporations which own them, have absolutely no moral right; and insure that those resources are only sold to American-approved governments, and only for US dollars.

However, the development of the PetroYuan, set to come about in the next couple of months, may well shatter the US dollar hegemony, and without China having fired a single shot.

'TRUMP DOSSIER' FIRM WILL TURN OVER BANKING RECORDS TO HOUSE INTEL COMMITTEE

Earlier this week, Speaker Paul Ryan offhandedly revealed that the FBI had agreed to hand over documents related to the infamous Trump dossier to the House Intelligence Committee, marking a victory for Chairman Devin Nunes, who had been pushing the DOJ to release the documents for month. And last night, Fox News reported another victory for Nunes in his push to determine how the dossier – which was funded by the DNC and Clinton campaign and contains allegations that have been widely debunked – factored into the bureau’s decision to open an investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.

UN ON KHAN SHEIKHOUN - VICTIMS HOSPITALIZED BEFORE CLAIMED INCIDENT HAPPENED

A UN commission concluded that the Syrian government is responsible for a widely discussed incident in Khan Sheikhoun. An alleged gas attack by air happened in April in an al-Qaeda controlled area in Syria. It was used by the White House to justify its bombing of a Syrian airbase.

The now released report was made to fit the narrative. The details below show that it was not the result of a serious investigation. This explains why Russia blocked the extension of the mandate of the reporting commission.

On October 26 Reuters reported: Syrian government to blame for April sarin attack: U.N. report

UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) - The Syrian government of Bashar al-Assad is to blame for a chemical attack on the opposition-held town of Khan Sheikhoun that killed dozens of people last April, according to a report sent to the United Nations Security Council on Thursday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Timing of the release of such a report, is never accidental.

So one has to wonder; just what are the US and Israel going to do, collectively, to Syria, to "punish" its leadership for a chemical attack it does not appear the Syrian government actually did?!?

The Israeli government has been very public in stating that as long as there is any Iranian presence in Syria, they will continue to bomb it.

Israel is going to war in Syria to Fight Iran.

US backed rebels gain foothold on large oil field in Syria, and refuse to give it back to the Syrian government. US Backed Syrian rebels capture huge, formerly ISIS-controlled oil field, refuse to give it back to the Syrian government

So, the US government now has a small "beachhead" in Syria, from which Israeli military can maneuver.

It is only a matter of time before both countries, working in concert, will try a decap strike against Damascus, pushing both countries into a potential military confrontation with Russia in Syria.

This is a coming collective "you can't fix stupid" moment, for both the US and the Israeli government, if they think, for a moment, that Russia will not counter them militarily, and soon.

DETAILS OF "SUSPICIOUS" MANAFORT WIRE TRANSFERS LEAKED FROM FBI PROBE

The FBI's investigation of Donald Trump's former campaign manager, Paul Manafort, includes a keen focus on a series of suspicious wire transfers in which offshore companies linked to Manafort moved more than $3 million all over the globe between 2012 and 2013.Much of the money came into the United States.

These transactions — which have not been previously reported — drew the attention of federal law enforcement officials as far back as 2012, when they began to examine wire transfers to determine if Manafort hid money from tax authorities or helped the Ukrainian regime close to Russian President Vladimir Putin launder some of the millions it plundered through corrupt dealings.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Manafort was indicted as of today, and taken into federal custody by the FBI.

Paul Manafort Indicted, told to surrender to the FBI

The JFK Cover-Up Continues

Ever since the assassination, the CIA has argued that the release of any of its JFK records would threaten “national security.” One thing is for sure and undeniable: Despite the release of many of the CIA’s records in the 1990s and yesterday, the United States did not fall into the ocean or fall to the communists. And neither would it have done so if Trump had not granted the CIA’s request for a continued cover-up of what it did on November 22, 1963.

Danny Contreras, an eyewitness Las Vegas shooting survivor who publicly claimed there were multiple shooters involved in the attack, has been found dead in an empty house in Las Vegas with multiple gunshot wounds.

His body was found in a vacant home in the northeastern valley after a neighbor heard a man groaning inside the building and called 911. Police say Contreras was dead when they arrived at the 5800 block of East Carey Avenue, near North Nellis Boulevard.

"This Is A Big Problem" - North Korea Nuclear Test Site Headed For A Devastating Collapse

A group of Chinese scientists have joined their North American peers in warning that North Korea’s Punggye-ri nuclear site could be on the verge of a dangerous collapse that could send a dangerous bloom of radiation floating over the border into Northern China.

As we’ve previously reported, China has stepped up its radiation monitoring on the border after detecting unsettling seismic activity surrounding the test site. Two weeks ago, a team of American scientists warned that the mountain above Pyungge-ri appeared to be suffering from “tired mountain syndrome” - a phenomenon commonly observed around Soviet Nuclear test sites.

And now in an effort to dissuade the North from carrying out another potentially destabilizing test, the South China Morning Post is reporting that a team of Chinese geologists warned their North Korean counterparts of a potentially catastrophic collapse of an underground nuclear test site on China’s doorstep during a briefing in Beijing last month.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What is left unknown, however, is if North Korea has hollowed out any other mountain region in the country from which the nuclear tests could, conceivably, proceed.

At least, that is most likely going to be the "story" used if and when a false flag explosion from an alleged North Korean nuclear site happens, as the "justification" for a US attack against North Korea. And remember the following:

Child Poverty in America Is Indefensible

The state of poverty in the United States, particularly among children, is abhorrent and scandalous, putting America, the richest and most powerful country in the world, in a shameful light. Successive American administrations are guilty of outrageous negligence toward poor children and have inflicted incalculable damage to millions who continue to suffer, causing a tremendous loss of human resources and productivity to the country.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These numbers are staggering: I understood that child poverty in this country was bad, but had utterly no clue that it was this bad.

If, in fact, a country's children are it's future, then this government has been doing an absolutely marvelous job of creating a future of despair and desperation; under-employment; drugs; criminal behaviour; and violence for these kids when they grow up, as its heritage!

Way to go, USA!!

“Reign of the Assad Family Is Coming to an End” – US Secretary of State Tillerson

The U.S. Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, stated on Thursday that the reign of the Assad family is coming to an end, contrasting his previous comments in March declaring that the Syrian President’s removal was not a priority for the U.S. regime.

“The reign of the Assad family is coming to an end,” Tillerson stated after his meeting with the head of the UN Envoy of Syria, Stephan de Mistura, in Geneva.

Tillerson stated he is unsure of how to bring about Assad’s end, but remained confident this would happen.

The Secretary of State would then take a shot at the Syrian Army, claiming they are only successful because of Russian airstrikes.

“The only reason Syrian forces have been successful has been because of the air support they have received from Russia,” Tillerson concluded.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has only to observe Tillerson's body language in the picture here, to understand precisely about what he is thinking; look at the clenched fists, and the expression on his face.

Are we potentially looking at a US decap strike on Damascus to take Al-Assad out?!? And has Russian President Vlad Putin gotten the memo?!?

I think the real question we need to ask here is, what is Russia prepared to do, militarily, in Syria to prevent this from happening?!?

I am hoping we are not looking at a war between Russia and the US government over the fate of Syria; unfortunately, both countries appear slouching toward such a confrontation, and potentially very soon.

Bringing Back the Draft Won’t Stop Unnecessary Wars

The rich and the connected will never be sent to the front lines if they don’t want to go. They will fake illnesses or get plush appointments to staff jobs. They will stay in school or fling urine at the draft board. They will find a way out.

There are other arguments for conscription, such as providing direction and employment for young people—that through compulsory service to their country they will be instilled with discipline and patriotism.

All those reasons are smokescreens. The true purpose of the draft is to provide large numbers of young bodies for overseas invasions—invasions in which tens of thousands to hundreds of thousands of Americans have been killed.

NATO General Threatens ‘Consequences’ for Turkey Buying Russian S-400

In looking to upgrade their air defense system, Turkey had a choice: buying the advanced Russian S-400 systems, or more expensive, US-made alternatives. Turkey chose to buy Russian, and NATO isn’t happy.

While NATO was initially just complaining the S-400 was incompatible with their own systems, top NATO General Petr Pavel told reporters this week that Turkey is likely to be punished by the alliance for not buying American.

“The principal of sovereignty obviously exists in acquisition of defense equipment, but the same way that nations are sovereign in making their decision, they are also sovereign in facing the consequences of that decision,” Pavel insisted.

Pavel dismissed reporter questions about the Turkish government’s recent anti-democracy moves, insisting nobody is perfect. Apparently the same leeway does not apply for the question of buying American weapons.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Pavel's comments on this issue have yet again demonstrated that NATO is not about democracy, but about power and control, to the point of publicly attempting to shame, and potentially punish Turkey for not using the US's far more costly, and inferior, defensive weapons rather than chosing Russia's very capable, and less costly, S-400 series.

And of what actual "consequences" does Pavel speak?!? Turkey is a geographically critical component to NATO, and I would politely suggest that Pavel doesn't do something ham-fistedly, pig-headely stupid here, to the point where the Turkish government believes that its NATO membership is no longer of value, and leaves.

Even Without Nukes, Korea War Would Kill 300,000 in Days

When everyone talks about the possibility of a US attack on North Korea, the major focus is on North Korea’s fledgling nuclear weapons program, and the possibility of retaliatory nuclear strikes against densely populated cities, causing unimaginable destruction.

Assessments of what could happen in this war, however, note that the danger extends far beyond nuclear weapons, and that even in a nuclear-free war, massive exchanges of conventional fire would result in the deaths of as many as 300,000 people in just the first few days.

It should go without saying that this is the case, as North Korea was working on retaliatory deterrence for decades before having managed to successfully test a nuclear weapon. North Korea has a massive amount of long-range artillery to call out in the event war broke out.

ISIS Shores Up Defenses at Key Border Stronghold

The main border crossing between Iraq and Syria, the city of Abu Kamal on the Syrian side and al-Qaim on the Iraqi side, is the last major territorial possession of ISIS, and the next big target for both Syria and Iraq’s militaries.

With those offensives likely to happen soon, ISIS is building up its defenses around the area, pushing more forces into the area while, according to US officials, ISIS leaders are being evacuated to smaller towns inside Syria that they still control.

ISIS still holds substantial territory in Syria, mostly in Deir Ezzor Province. They’ve been losing all the big cities and towns, along the Euphrates River, with Syrian military pushing on the river’s south shore, and Kurdish fighters taking the north shore.

US officials are suggesting an attack on Abu Kamal would be up to the Kurds to decide, but the Syrian military is likely to get there first.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This suggestion comes at a time when the Kurds are seeking more autonomy in Iraq; perhaps they believe that in uniting with the US and Iraqi military, to continue fighting ISIS, the Kurds will have an easier time in negotiating just how that autonomy shakes out for them.

Trump Justice Department: Wars are off limits to court review

A Trump administration attorney said Friday that federal courts cannot evaluate whether a president is waging an illegal war, even if the war clearly has no grounding in a congressional authorization of force and someone directly impacted sues.

The claim was made during oral arguments in an appeal filed by Nathan Michael Smith, a now-former Army intelligence analyst who sued last year claiming former President Barack Obama was illegally fighting Islamic State terrorists without an authorization for use of military force, or AUMF, from Congress.

Smith, who left active-duty military service in June, supports fighting the jihadi group, but argues doing so has not been properly authorized by Congress. “For me, it’s not a partisan issue,” he told the Washington Examiner outside a courtroom in the nation's capital. "Procedure matters, if we're a nation of laws.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Smith is entirely correct in his assessment; unfortunately, however, the brutally sad truth is, the Occupied Unhinged Surveilled State of Amerika is no longer really a nation of laws; it is a nation of Deep State Agendas, and false narratives by which these agendas are accomplished.

These agendas are most generally about regime changing governments which are not US-centric; replacing those governments with personnel who are US-centric; expropriating that country's natural resources to which this government has utterly no moral right; and insuring that those resources are only sold in US dollars.

Repeat.

False flag operations are routinely used as a weapon of US statescraft to blame another country for something it absolutely did not do, then declare war against it, based on that lie.

Remember the Bush administration lied to the US and the world, that "Saddam Hussein had wepaons of mass destruction" , as the basis for attacking it, assassinating Hussein, making sure that its government was Western -centric, and that its oil was only sold in US dollars?!?

Remember how the Bush administration lied to the American people and the world about the reasons the US military and NATO "had to go into Afghanistan", when this now-16 years old war was really about controlling the pipelines, its mineral wealth, and its opium, which is now used to fund off the shelf, US Alphabet Soup Agencies activities over which Congress has utterly no oversight?!?

Remember when President Johnson lied to the American people and the world about the "Gulf of Tonkin" incident, as the lie to justify massive attacks on North Vietnam?!? Remember the endless "body counts" obediently regurgitated by corporate presstitutes, to give the American people the sense that American was actully winning that war, when it was simply an excuse to grind up more American soldiers and military hardware, to the US's military/industrial complex's delight, because they had to keep replacing machinery.

Times have changed; but unfortunately, the US Deep State agenda never does.

Constitutional Battle: Abe Wants Amendment Allowing Japan to Go to War Again

With a successful (if controversial) snap election on the books, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has turned his eyes to his longstanding goal of amending the Constitution of Japan to allow the nation to declare war on its enemies - but this is a task easier said than done.
On Monday, Abe vowed to see the constitution amended to remove Article 9, which reads "the Japanese people forever renounce war as a sovereign right of the nation and the threat or use of force as means of settling international disputes." The article adds that Japan may not maintain "land, sea, and air forces, as well as other war potential."

The 1947 constitution was written at a time when Japan was utterly ravaged following World War II, not to mention under US occupation. The belligerent behavior of Imperial Japan caused the Americans to pressure the feeble post-war government into the strict restrictions on Japanese use of military force.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF this Japanese Constitutional Amendment passes (and I wouldn't put it past Abe to have the pull to make it happen), watch for Japan to start flexing its military muscle as far as it thinks it can get away with it, against both North Korea and China.

Bangladesh Considers Sterilization to Curb Rohingya Refugee Population

Bangladesh is considering sterilizing the Rohingya refugee population after health officials proposed the move to the government Friday.

Supporters of the plan call for vasectomies for Rohingya men and tubectomies for women, saying “sterilization of the males is the best way to control the population,” according to Pintu Kanti Bhattacharjee, who heads a health service near the Myanmar-Bangladesh border.

“If a man is sterilized, he cannot father a child even if he marries four or five times,” he added.

The idea was put forward shortly after rights activists working in refugee camps said Rohingya women believe that pregnancy protects them from rape and other attacks from Myanmar's security forces.

“Some of them told us that if a woman was pregnant, she had less chance of being targeted by the military or attackers,” AFP reported the activists as saying.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would like to politely point out to Health Service Manager Pintu Kanti Bhattacharjee, that forced sterilzations would be another form of slow-mo genocide against the Rohingya people.

But then, that would be the point, wouldn't it?!?

And what would happen to the people who would not consent to having the procedure done?!? Would they be rounded up in camps, and offered the choice between forcible sterilization or death?!?!?

And BTW: has a Burmese-language version of "Mein Kampf" just come out?!? And I ask this, because this is precisely the kind of "racial hygiene" Hitler would have advocated against "the others" !!

I would also like to politely suggest to Mr. Bhattacharjee, that the optics of such a move against the Rohingyas, if the Myanmar government goes ahead with this plan, will be perceived by the rest of the world as a crime against humanity, and rightly so.

'Never Trust' the US, Ayatollah Khamenei Warns Iraq

During a meeting with Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi, Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Seyyed Al Khamenei advised his guest to remain vigilant of U.S. plots.

“The Americans created Daesh themselves, but now that the terrorists have been defeated by the Iraqi government and people, they pretend to be supportive of this important development,” Ayatollah Khamenei explained. “However, they will undoubtedly not hesitate to harm Iraq again if they find the opportunity.”

al-Abadi emphasized Iraq's efforts to retain unity and territorial integrity in the face of terrorist threats, while Ayatollah Khamenei reiterated that unity among Iraq's ethnic groups and popular forces resulted in important victories against Islamic State group operating in the country.

Israel willing to resort to military action to stop Iran acquiring nuclear weapons: minister

Israel is willing to resort to military action to ensure Iran never acquires nuclear weapons, the intelligence minister said on Thursday in Japan where he is seeking backing for U.S. President Donald Trump’s tougher line on Tehran.

Trump said on Oct. 13 he would not certify Iran is complying with an agreement on curtailing its nuclear program, signed by his predecessor, Barack Obama, opening a 60-day window for Congress to act to reimpose sanctions.

“If international efforts led these days by U.S. President Trump don’t help stop Iran attaining nuclear capabilities, Israel will act militarily by itself,” Intelligence Minister Israel Katz said in an interview in Tokyo. “There are changes that can be made (to the agreement) to ensure that they will never have the ability to have a nuclear weapon.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These threats against Iran by Intelligence Minister Katz are only for domestic consumption, to placate the Israeli voters that Tel Aviv is doing "someething" to alleviate the alleged "existential threat" represented by Iran (which only collectively exists in the fevered brains of those in the Knesset in Tel Aviv).

What Israel has been cheerleading for, consistently, is a US attack against Iran, with the costs only to be borne only with American blood and American money, not Israeli.

And of course, that may well lead to a war with Russia over Iran, as Russian politicians and military commanders have consistently pledged that should Iran get attacked militarily, Russia will come to its aid.

IF President Trump is in any way as smart as he purports to be, he will sit this one out, and let it be Israel getting clobbered by both the Iranian and Russian military.

Unfortunately, with the choke-hold Tel Aviv has on US foreign policy, that is as likely a scenario as is pigs discovering they are aerodynamic.

DoD Watchdog: F-35s Grounded 22 Percent of the Time Due to Parts Shortage

A new report prepared by the US Congress’ watchdog agency, the Government Accountability Office, found that parts shortages led to “degrading readiness” in the F-35 fleet, leaving aircraft “unable to fly about 22 percent of the time during the first eight months of 2017.

"The Department of Defense is sustaining over 250 F-35 aircraft and plans to triple the fleet by the end of 2021," but the Pentagon "is facing sustainment challenges that are affecting warfighter readiness," the watchdog said Thursday.

The jets have faced "significantly longer repair times" — about twice as long as the program's goal — as a direct result of not having enough parts, GAO reports. While the F-35 program office initially set out to complete repairs processes in 60 to 90 days, the Pentagon has in fact taken about 172 days on average to fix issues on the aircraft, according to the report.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is completely unacceptable, and the executives of Lockheed-Martin need to be brought in to the Pentagon for some very high level, private meetings, about how Lockheed Martin is going to cure this problem, at their expence, and how soon they will commit to getting it cured.

Mattis Threatens North Korea With ‘Massive’ Response to Nuclear Strike

US Defense Secretary James Mattis warned Pyongyang on Friday that any use of nuclear weapons by North Korea would be met with an overwhelming response.
MOSCOW (Sputnik) — "The US does not accept a nuclear North Korea… Make no mistake, any attack on the US or our allies will be defeated. Any use of nuclear weapons by the North will be met with a massive military response, effective and overwhelming, " he said during a speech in Seoul.

Mattis said that by sticking to its nuclear and missile program the North was in effect "reducing its security," after Pyongyang justified its research of nuclear weapons by a threat from the United States.

The Pentagon chief stressed that dialogue remained Washington's preferred method of settling the dispute with Pyongyang but added the threat of a nuclear strike from the North was accelerating.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In looking at Mattis' rhetoric here, there are two words which keep screaming over and over like an ugly mantra in my head, and those words are "false flag!"

And why would the North Koreans do something like this now, in light of the following story?!?

Nuclear Leak ‘Inevitable’: Chinese Scientists Tell North Korea to Move Test Site The article, from sputnik goes on to say: "Chinese scientists have issued a firm warning to Pyongyang that if North Korea wants to continue testing nuclear weapons, it has to find a new location other than the Punggye-ri mountain range where the previous six tests occurred.

The mountain is at imminent risk of collapse, an event which could allow nuclear waste to bleed out into nearby China. "China cannot sit and wait until the site implodes," a Peking University researcher told the South China Morning Post Friday.

"Maybe the North Koreans themselves have realized that the site cannot take another blow. If they still want to do it, they have to do it somewhere else," the researcher said, noting that Chinese instruments "can detect nuclear fallout when it arrives, but it will be too late by then."

So if there is a nuclear test by North Korea, that test will have to wait until North Korean sceintists have found another site from which to do it.

I do not know how long that takes, at "construction ramming speed", with a 24/7 construction schedule, but this is something that cannot, logically, happen immediately.

HOW THE CIA FUNDED & SUPPORTED LITERARY MAGAZINES WORLDWIDE WHILE WAGING CULTURAL WAR AGAINST COMMUNISM

Over the course of this tumultuous year, new CIA director Mike Pompeo has repeatedly indicated that he would move the Agency in a “more aggressive direction.” In response, at least one person took on the guise of former Chilean president Salvador Allende and joked, incredulously, “more aggressive”? In 1973, the reactionary forces of General Augusto Pinochet overthrew Allende, the first elected Marxist leader in Latin America. Pinochet then proceeded to institute a brutal 17-year dictatorship characterized by mass torture, imprisonment, and execution. The Agency may not have orchestrated the coup directly but it did at least support it materially and ideologically under the orders of President Richard Nixon, on a day known to many, post-2001, as “the other 9/11.”

DOD PLANS SOLAR-STORM-BASED NATIONAL BLACKOUT DRILL DURING ANTIFA PROTESTS IN NOVEMBER

According to The National Association for Amateur Radio (ARRL), elements of the US Department of Defense (DOD) will simulate a “communications interoperability” training exercise across the United States on November 04-06. The announcement released on October 24 has not been widely distributed to the media, because the drill is simulating a total grid collapse and could spark public fear.

Back in April 2017, we wrote an article titled ‘Yesterday’s Broad Power Outage Likely Caused By Geomagnetic Storm‘. While everyone thought terrorism was to blame, we correctly pointed out that large power failures in major US cities was due to an intense geomagnetic storm registering 8-10 on K-Planetary Index.

Leaders at the church that George Washington attended decided that a plaque honoring the first president of the United States must be removed.

Christ Church in Alexandria, Virginia will take down a memorial marking the pew where Washington sat with his family, saying it is not acceptable to all worshipers.

JFK Files: The Truth Behind the Farce

by Clifford Shack
(henrymakow.com)

The American people have been promised the release of all the classified documents on the JFK assassination. It ain't never going to happen.

But that's ok. Just connect the dots. Those of us who have, know, that solving the whodunit aspect of the assassination is just the beginning. The real, meaty story lies in the motive. Since the assassination 54 years ago, millions of published research hours allow us to piece the story together in the context of that time.

You don't have to be a rocket scientist to understand the basics of the case. Those with a minimal degree of understanding know that the CIA was clearly behind the assassination. Most of the guys involved in planning the assassination lived blocks away from Kennedy when he lived in McClean, Virginia.

US Soldiers in Niger Were Left Behind in Evacuation

Officially, the US military never leaves troops behind. Secretary of State James Mattis even said literally this last week, in denying that a soldier might’ve been left behind in the October 4 Niger ambush, in which four US special forces were killed.

As details continue to emerge on the incident, however, it appears increasingly certain that Mattis hadn’t told the truth, with officials now saying that when French helicopters evacuated the US forces, they had lost contact with four US troops, and only evacuated seven out of 11 in the unit.

Hours later, they managed to return to recover the bodies of the three soldiers initially reported killed. The fourth soldier wasn’t found for another two days. That the troops left without contact with the four makes it uncertain if some might’ve been alive at the time, and died abandoned on the field.

Potential showdown in eastern Syria over IS-held territory

As U.S.-allied fighters hurtle down the eastern bank of the Euphrates River, a showdown could ensue between the U.S. and Russia, whose allies are racing to take over the same strategic oil-rich territory from the Islamic State group.

While the two sides will likely avoid a direct confrontation, the capture of Raqqa by the U.S.-backed forces, followed by their swift seizure of Syria's largest oil field from IS, has irked Damascus, which needs the oil to boost its flagging economy.

As the rival international coalitions compete to defeat the militants and snap up oil and gas fields, the Russian military has issued a stream of angry statements, accusing the U.S. of colluding with the Islamic State and other extremist groups in a bid to stymie the government's advances.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I think, at this point, it is only a matter of time before we see Russian/Syrian and US-backed jihadists tangling militarily.

The potential for a US strike has been escalated by Israeli threats (and the carrying out of those threats) to strike Syria as long as there is any Iranian military presence there.

Israel is going to war in Syria to fight Iran

The situation in Syria looks as though it is heading into a very volatile place, and I hope Russia can ratchet down the tensions.

CVS In Talks To Buy Aetna In What Would Be Year's Largest Deal

In a stunning scoop published minutes before the close, WSJ reports CVS Health is in talks to buy Aetna, a defensive acquisition that may help the company fend off Amazon should the e-commerce giant follow through on flirtations with the pharmacy business.

Shortly before WSJ published its report, CVS and other pharmacy stocks tumbled to their lows of the day on reports Amazon has been quietly obtaining wholesale pharmacy licenses.

US official: 3 Navy carriers plan exercise in Asia Pacific

A rare military exercise involving three of the U.S. Navy's aircraft carrier strike groups is being planned for next month in the Asia Pacific, a U.S. official said Thursday. The likely exercise would happen around the same time that President Donald Trump is traveling to the region, including visits to South Korea and China.

During a Pentagon briefing Lt. Gen. Kenneth McKenzie, director of the Joint Staff, raised the prospect of the three carriers operating together at some point, but he provided no details. A U.S. official confirmed the plans for an exercise, but wasn't able to discuss the matter publicly so spoke on condition of anonymity.

Three Navy aircraft carriers and the ships that accompany them are currently thousands of miles apart in the Indian Ocean and the Pacific. But they are moving through the region and could be closer together in weeks.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

My bet is that while President Trump is in Beijing for meetings with Xi Jinping, Kim Jung Un is going to "cool his jets", not test any missiles, and do absolutely nothing in response to the provocative military exercises surrounding the Korean peninsula.

Unfortunately, however, if there is no such a response to the Occupied, Unhinged Surveilled State of Amerika's move, such a response may well be accomplished for him, by way of a false flag; false flags are a routine tool of statescraft by this country, and the timing of the coming together of these carrier groups needs to have a substantive reason for doing it. Keeping operational preparedness at peak level takes a lot of time, discipline, and money.

TRUMP’S NEW PRESIDENTIAL MEMO WILL NORMALIZE DRONES IN AMERICAN LIFE

President Trump’s recent decisions on drone aircraft foreshadows the increase of the technology in civilian life and military strategy.

On Wednesday President Trump signed a Presidential Memorandum creating a new trial program for the commercial use of unmanned aerial aircraft, or drones. The memo, titled “Unmanned Aircraft Systems Integration Pilot Program,” allows certain communities to be exempt from current safety rules as they test drone operations. The Associated Press reports:

States, communities and tribes selected to participate would devise their own trial programs in partnership with government and industry drone users. The administration anticipates approving at least five applications, but there is no limit on the number of communities that can join.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Think that drone strikes will only happen against "the bad guys" in other countries?!? You'd better think again. Police departments around the country have already started stocking up on these weapons for their arsenals.

Connecticut set to gbecome the first state to allow deadly police drones.

Weaponized Drones now legal inside the US; lawmaker says crimefighting will become a video game.

Cops may quell the next Baltimore-like uprising with tear gas drones

Police Taser drones authorised in US state

The Coming Drone Attack on America

Are weaponised drones on their way in the US?!?

The problems, both moral and legal, with the use of these weaponised drones are complex.

First, how much collateral damage will they create among innocent civilians?!? If incidents like those in Afghanistan, Yemen, Iraq, Somalia, and Libya are any indication, the amount of collateral damage in the use of these weaponized drones may prove huge.

Secondly, it moves the drone operator from a position of helping cops on the ground apprehend a suspicious baddie to that of judge, jury, and executioner, something which is the polar opposite of American jurisprudence to date.

I am rather certain that laws will be put into place, at both the Federal and State level, to amend and allow such actions to happen, but folks... we are collectively goose-stepping right down the path to a thoroughly dystopian imoposition of martial law in the current, and coming, use of weaponized drones against American citizens, and need to fight like hell to prevent their further use by law enforcement in this country.

As a metaphor borrowed from the film series "The Matrix", think of the Independent media as the people with "the red pill", which offers you the intellectual and emotional salvation of being able to see beyond the lies of the State and its presstitute media, to the realities which exist in this world, and why they exist.

24,000 HOMICIDES: MEXICO ON PACE FOR MOST VIOLENT YEAR IN HISTORY AS DRUG WARS SPIRAL OUT OF CONTROL

As our elected officials in Washington D.C. continue to debate whether or not Trump's proposed border wall would be an effective deterrent to those looking to come to the U.S. illegally, the one thing that is becoming increasingly clear is that Mexico's drug wars are spiraling out of control...a fact that the Trump administration will almost certainly leverage as it seeks additional funding for border security. As PanAmPost notes, Mexico has recorded a staggering 24,000 homicides in 2017 through September with 73% of those murders being tied to organized crime.

2017 might be the most violent year in Mexican history, one NGO claims. Semáforo Delictivo said that, due to the 24,000 homicides between January and September, the year is proving even worse than 2011, when President Felipe Calderón’s war on drugs led to 22,000 homicides.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Ever notice, that when any country declares a "war" on some social stigma or other, like the alleged "war on poverty" or "war on drugs", the problem simply gets worse, rather than getting better?!?

The world needs to focus on Portugal's answer to addiction, which has worked very wonderfully, and features a combination of decriminalisation, coupled with counseling; the results, although roundly criticised in the early phases, have been stellar:

Portugal: what happened after their decriminalisation of drugs, from weed to heroin

But, of course, what Portugal did was intelligent, compassionate, and logical, and it is still working, 16 years on, which is why we will never see such an approach tried in either the US or Mexico.

The gangs promoting and selling the drugs will loose revenue; cops on the take will lose revenue; politicians who are paid to "look the other way" will lose revenue; banks laundering drug money will lose revenue; and those private prisons, housing non-violent criminals who have been convicted of drug use will lose revenue.

Unless and until both the US and Mexican government are truly willing to learn from other countries' successes, the assassinations, gang wars, and the problems will continue, and escalate, unabated, for the forseeable future.

As a Californian, when I was a lot younger, I loved going to Ensenada, Mexico; it was beautiful; the people were very kind, and generally spoke enough English that if I got lost or turned around, they could help me get to where I needed to be.

At this point, were I looking for a tourist destination, I would avoid the country as though its residents collectively had the plague, because of this horrific drug and gang-generated violence.

The FBI’s Forgotten Criminal Record

The FBI has always used its “good guy” image to keep a lid on its crimes. The controversy swirling about Comey’s firing should spur the American people, media, and Congress to take the FBI off its pedestal and place it where it belongs — under the law. It is time to cease venerating a federal agency whose abuses have perennially menaced Americans’ constitutional rights. Otherwise, the FBI’s vast power and pervasive secrecy guarantee that more FBI scandals are just around the bend.

The Deep State and Brits colluded on Trump dossier to make Russia toxic

The document and false claims of Trump-Russia collusion form the impetus of the appointment of Robert Mueller to investigate the baseless Trump-Russia collusion charges. As a result of the dossier, the Trump campaign was wiretapped before and after the election and Russia became too toxic for Trump to continue his friendly overtures. If Richard Nixon could go to China, and Ronald Reagan could go the Soviet Union at the height of the Cold War, why couldn’t Trump go to Russia and broker a peace. Isn’t peace a better alternative? Not for the Deep State.

Not the faceless stooges at Fusion GPS, the spooky Washington firm that deliberately operates in the gray areas around the law. Not Mark Elias, the sleazy Hillary lawyer who blatantly lied about the source of the “dossier” for nearly a year. Not former FBI Director James Comey, who ran an agency which continued to shovel our tax dollars into Steele’s facehole well after his credibility fell into doubt. Not former President Bill Clinton, who pocketed $500,000 for a quick chat in Moscow while helping finesse the sale of 20 percent of America’s uranium to Rosatom, a front for the Russian government. Not former President Barack Obama, who was apprised of Russian efforts to insert themselves in the election, yet did nothing — rather conveniently — considering their intended beneficiary.

Trump: ‘My Generals’ Authorized US Missions In Niger': I Gave Them Authority to Do What's Right'

In comments Wednesday regarding the recent revealed US military operation inside Niger, President Trump confirmed that he never personally authorized any of the mission, but rather that “my generals and my military” did that all on their own.

Trump insisted his generals “are great generals” and “I gave them authority to do what’s right” and he is confident that eventually “we’re going to win.” Trump added that he’s been finding out about the mission just like everyone else has.

Which seems like a huge problem, despite no one treating it like one. President Trump was apparently “informed” of Niger after the October 4 ambush when they realized one of the soldiers was missing, and Senate Armed Services

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The stock answer as to why the US military is in Niger is "ISIS"; the real answer as to why the US military is in Niger has to do with its abundance of natural resources; expropriating them; and not letting Russia or China exploit them.

The Natural Resources of Niger

And that President Trump was not informed of the Niger operation until after the ambush had taken place, smacks of an absolutely cavalier lack of communications between his generals and President Trump.

To an ordinary person like myself, this is extraordinarily frightening, and could, potentially, put us into a would war which the President would be unable to stop, because he couldn't see it coming, due to the actions of these generals.

And beneath it, comes the following headline:

US Prepares Armed Drones for Lethal Strikes in Niger: Soldiers' Deaths Used to Pressure Niger Govt to Accept Strikes

The drone strikes will do precisely what they have done in places like Afghanistan; Pakistan; Somalia; Iraq; Yemen; and Syria; they will kill far more innocent civilians than the bad guys, then radicalize those who are left behind to become jihadists, and our troops' worst enemies, literally.

I am watching the feed on Fox News right now, seeing President selling his proposal to conquer the opioid addiction in this country; I have to wish that this country was not, collectively, so addicted to other countries' natural resources.

Kaspersky Software Caught Classified NSA Malware

Russian anti-virus company Kaspersky Lab has been increasingly vilified in the US for acquiring classified US government programs. This hs led to a full ban on Kaspersky software on federal PCs, and several retails dropping the wildly popular program.

Kaspersky Lab’s own internal investigation into the matter revealed that was indeed the case, in as much as its antivirus software “accidentally” swept up NSA malware and its adjoining source code during a 2014 malware scan, even though that malware was itself classified.

This means, however, that the antivirus software was doing exactly what it was supposed to do, sweeping up computer malware, and collecting data for analysis to improve their ability to fight off such attacks in the future.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The bigger question is, what the heck was the NSA malware and its source code doing, out in the world, please?!?!? And which country's software was it intended to infect, Russia's?!?

US House Passes ‘Harshest Ever’ North Korea Sanctions

In a 415-2 vote, the House of Representatives has passed the “Otto Warmbier Act,” a new round of sanctions against North Korea described as the “harshest ever” in US history. If it passes, it would ban anyone who does any business or cooperates in any way with North Korea from having US business ties.

In addition to the sanctions, the bill also “honors” all Americans who have died while in North Korean custody. It is named after Otto Warmbier, who died in June after being in North Korean custody.

Reps. Justin Amash (R-MI) and Thomas Massie (R-KY) voted against the bill, with Massie warning he believed the bill moves the US closer to war, and creates tensions with natural allies.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This bil is primarily symbolic in nature, as it cannot really damage North Korea's economy in any practical way.

But it does bear witness to the increasingly unhinged attitude those in Congress bear toward North Korea, and further ratchets off any attempt at meaningful dialogue toward an de-escalation of tentions. Of course, President Trump's and Kim Jung Un's "war of words", consisting primarily of ad hominem attacks on each other, have not helped in that regard whatsoever.

Lack of communication, at diplomatic levels, may well translate into a shooting war, which would be an absolutely lousy outcome for both countries, China, and the region as a whole.

China's advice of adding moderation to communication seems more than reasonable here.

GOOGLE, FACEBOOK & COMCAST JOINTLY LIED TO CALIFORNIA LAWMAKERS TO SCUTTLE BROADBAND PRIVACY BILL

Earlier this year the GOP and Trump administration rushed to kill consumer broadband privacy rules. While the broadband industry cried like a colicky toddler when the rules were originally proposed, they were relatively modest -- simply requiring that ISPs clearly disclose what they're selling, who they're selling it to, and provide working opt out tools. The rules were proposed after ISPs repeatedly showed they were incapable of self-regulating on this front (see Verizon's zombie cookies, AT&T's attempts to charge you more for privacy, and CableOne's declaration it wanted to use credit scores to provide even worse customer support).

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This kind of behaviour is perfectly predictable from Facebook and Google!!

US LAWMAKERS URGE ATTORNEY GENERAL TO LOOK INTO PROSECUTING ENVIRONMENTALISTS AS TERRORISTS

Several members of Congress signed on to a letter recommending Attorney General Jeff Sessions look into whether the Justice Department has the laws it needs to prosecute environmental activists challenging pipelines as if they are terrorists.

The letter asks Sessions if the USA PATRIOT Act and Pipeline Safety Act contain enough provisions to criminalize actions against “energy infrastructure at the federal level.” It also asks if the Justice Department plans to prosecute any of the individuals involved in the alleged “attempted sabotage of four major crude oil pipelines in multiple states” on October 11, 2016.

“Do the attacks against the nation’s energy infrastructure, which pose a threat to human life, and appear to be intended to intimidate and coerce policy changes, fall within the DOJ’s understanding of [domestic terrorism]?” representatives add.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

We are on a very slippery slope here, with this request for redfininition of what the word "terrorist" means with regard to ecosabateurs.

Did these alleged incidents actually happen, and can be documented to have happened?!?

I find myself uncomfortable with saying this, but physical damage/sabotage to energy infrastructure cannot be tolerated, because the risks are very great of causing worse damage than a pipeline would. But does such activity rise to the bar of being labeled an "act of terrorism"?!? Perhaps yes, because it could damage more than profits; people could physically get injured, or worse. in the aftermath of such an action.

But I hope that Sessions has the horse-sense to differentiate between physical harm to a pipeline from peaceful protest about the coming into existence of a pipeline, due to ecological concerns. That right to peacefully protest actions one does not like is enshrined in the Bill of Rights.

Those who peacefully protested at the site of the Dakota Access pipeline were concerned about leaks, and were very prescient to do so. Leaks were found in the pipeline this year. Leaks discovered along the Dakota Access Pipeline.

But that being said, the oil infrastructure companies need to clean up their act, and invest in smarter, more earth-friendly ways to prevent oil leaks and spills, and also be working on the next great phase of energy development for this planet which has absolutely nothing to do with fossil fuel.

AMERICA'S DRUG WAR IS DEVASTATING MEXICO

Even if the drug war were to end today, there would still be street crime and gangs in the far-distant future. However, these issues would be on a dramatically smaller scale. Mexico’s street gangs could never ascend to the level of an organized crime outfit without the massive profits from illegal drugs to pay for the necessary weaponry, hitmen, political protection, etc.

By the same token, drug money evokes a vicious cycle of rampant criminality that goes far beyond drug trafficking. In other words, Mexico’s cartels are diversified criminal organizations that don’t limit themselves to drug smuggling.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There are two things which need to happen here. First, decriminalize the use of drugs completely in the US, knocking out the profit motive for creating and selling them.

Secondly, making it impossible for illegal drug gangs to get into the States.

Of course, that is likely to happen when pigs become aware that they are aerodynamic, because of all the money legitimate financial institutions make in laundering drug money, and the huge profits made by for-profit prisons in incarcerating convicted drug felons.

Yes, I know I am cynical; but some days, I just cannot keep up!!

Former FDA Commissioner Charged in RICO Lawsuit

A Federal Lawsuit charges Dr. Margaret Hamburg, former Commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) with conspiracy, racketeering & colluding to conceal deadly drug dangers – under the federal Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations law (RICO) law. The amended RICO lawsuit was filed on April 11, 2016 in the U.S. District Court in Washington DC on behalf of eight plaintiffs who claim they have suffered severe harm by ingesting the drug, Levaquin whose deadly risks were concealed to protect financial interests.

The drug is one of the controversial group of antibiotics, including Levaquin, Cipro, Avelox and other fluoroquinolones. Public Citizen petitioned the FDA in 1996 and again in 2006, to issue Black Box warnings for tendon rupture and tendinitis. Had warnings been issued, the death toll from Levaquin– reputedly more than 5,000 — and the tens of thousands who were debilitated with life-threatening diseases would likely have been averted.

U.S. WIDENS SURVEILLANCE TO INCLUDE ‘HOMEGROWN VIOLENT EXTREMISTS’

The U.S. government has broadened an interpretation of which citizens can be subject to physical or digital surveillance to include “homegrown violent extremists,” according to official documents seen by Reuters.

The change last year to a Department of Defense manual on procedures governing its intelligence activities was made possible by a decades-old presidential executive order, bypassing congressional and court review.

The new manual, released in August 2016, now permits the collection of information about Americans for counterintelligence purposes “when no specific connection to foreign terrorist(s) has been established,” according to training slides created last year by the Air Force Office of Special Investigations (AFOSI).

The slides were obtained by Human Rights Watch through a Freedom of Information Act request about the use of federal surveillance laws for counter-drug or immigration purposes and shared exclusively with Reuters.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

We are coming to the point where Christian pacifist activists, like me, who constantly exhort their governments to resolve their geopolitical issues through hard-won, moral negotiations, rather than through wars, are going to be on this same sort of watch list, even though they are no threats through drug activities or immigration.

'Downright Orwellian': journalists decry Facebook experiment's impact on democracy

Facebook has been criticised for the worrying impact on democracy of its “downright Orwellian” decision to run an experiment seeing professional media removed from the main news feed in six countries.

The experiment, which began 19 October and is still ongoing, involves limiting the core element of Facebook’s social network to only personal posts and paid adverts.

So-called public posts, such as those from media organisation Facebook pages, are being moved to a separate “explore” feed timeline. As a result, media organisations in the six countries containing 1% of the world’s population – Sri Lanka, Guatemala, Bolivia, Cambodia, Serbia and Slovakia – have had one of their most important publishing platforms removed overnight.

AMERICA’S BIGGEST PRIVATE PRISON COMPANY JUST HOSTED ITS ANNUAL CONFERENCE AT A TRUMP GOLF RESORT

The country’s biggest private prison company last week held its annual leadership conference at a golf resort owned by President Donald Trump, underscoring an increasingly cozy relationship between the ever-expanding industry and the White House. GEO Group executives met for several days at the Trump National Doral near Miami, the Washington Post reports, as the company continues to hold multiple lucrative prison contracts with the federal government.

Clintons, Obama officials are about to get the scrutiny they deserve

Questions about Uranium One were supposed to die with Clinton’s inevitable presidential victory. But her loss proved that the Clinton ship is sinking much faster than the Washington establishment expected. Those who gambled on her victory (Holder, Lynch, Mueller, Comey, Rosenstein and, most importantly, Obama) can either go down with the ship as an investigation unfolds or give up any loyalty to the Clinton machine.

This is America? Government-appointed guardians can sell assets of elderly without their consent

Did you know that there are government-appointed “court guardians” who can deem senior Americans “incompetent,” and on that basis, are authorized to manage their assets — including selling their homes and valuables — and to choose where they live, whom they associate with, and what medical treatment they receive?

As recounted by Rachel Aviv for The New Yorker, that’s what happened to Rudy and Rennie North on September 1, 2013. Rudy, 68, a retired broadcasting consultant, lived with his 66-year-old wife Rennie in Sun City Aliante — an “active adult” community in Las Vegas, NV.

Government Officials Warn: Breakdown In Diplomacy With North Korea Is A Fast Track To War - Mac Slavo

Government officials are worried that a new breakdown in talks with North Korea could trigger a war. With heated rhetoric taking the stage instead of diplomacy, it could only be a matter of time before the anger hits a boiling point.

Joseph Yun, a top American diplomat to North Korea, has been warning of the breakdown in meetings on Capitol Hill and seeking help to persuade the administration to prioritize diplomacy over the heated rhetoric that appears to be pushing the two nuclear powers closer toward conflict, sources familiar with the discussions told NBC News. Diplomatic efforts between the United States and North Korea are in peril with Pyongyang shunning talks in response to President Donald Trump’s increased public attacks on Kim Jong Un, according to multiple U.S. government and congressional officials. Yun claims the White House has “handicapped” the chances of diplomacy.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

On this issue, I find myself agreeing with Corker; and btw, looking at 38north.org today, a very sober-sided analytical organisation under the auspices of John Hopkins University, which evaluates what is going on in North Korea through analyzing satellite images, there is utterly nothing to indicate that the North Koreans are moving missiles to their launch site.

The FBI’s Political Meddling

But now we come to the Rosatom disclosures last week in The Hill, a newspaper that covers Congress.

Here’s another story as plausible as we can make it based on credible reporting. After the Cold War, in its own interest, the U.S. wanted to build bridges to the Russian nuclear establishment. The Putin government, for national or commercial purposes, agreed and sought to expand its nuclear business in the U.S.

The purchase and consolidation of certain assets were facilitated by Canadian entrepreneurs who gave large sums to the Clinton Foundation, and perhaps arranged a Bill Clinton speech in Moscow for $500,000. A key transaction had to be approved by Hillary Clinton’s State Department.

Now we learn that, before and during these transactions, the FBI had uncovered a bribery and kickback scheme involving Russia’s U.S. nuclear business, and also received reports of Russian officials seeking to curry favor through donations to the Clinton Foundation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

the statement that "Its significance was missed until The Hill reported on the FBI investigation last week.", is a blatant lie.

The Independent media,, (at least WRH) has been running with this since 2015; Was the gentleman whose name appears as author of this article perhaps living on another planet when the independent press, and others, broke the story in 2015?!?

Trey Gowdy targeting James Comey in new Clinton probe

Rep. Trey Gowdy plans to grill former FBI Director James Comey about his decision-making as part of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee's decision to re-examine the investigation into Hillary Clinton's private email server.

"Have to, won't we?" the South Carolina Republican told the Washington Examiner when asked about interviewing Comey.

Gowdy chairs the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, which has opened a joint investigation with the Judiciary Committee in order to review the Justice Department's handling of the politically charged investigation. Gowdy is particularly concerned that "the decision to charge or not charge [Clinton] was made before all the witnesses were interviewed," but he emphasized that the investigation topics are structured in a nonpartisan way.

Our Ever-Deadlier Police State

None of the reforms, increased training, diversity programs, community outreach and gimmicks such as body cameras have blunted America’s deadly police assault, especially against poor people of color. Police forces in the United States—which, according to The Washington Post, have fatally shot 782 people this year—are unaccountable, militarized monstrosities that spread fear and terror in poor communities. By comparison, police in England and Wales killed 62 people in the 27 years between the start of 1990 and the end of 2016.

Police officers have become rogue predators in impoverished communities. Under U.S. forfeiture laws, police indiscriminately seize money, real estate, automobiles and other assets. In many cities, traffic, parking and other fines are little more than legalized extortion that funds local government and turns jails into debtor prisons.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have absolutely no idea what feels like for a mom to have your teenager out with friends...then find they have been arrested, or worse, courtesy of a really bad decision by a police officer, even if the kid was totally innocent of doing anything wrong.

But we have to understand that this still happens in this country, particularly to poor people of color: this has to stop.

Judge Orders 3 USS Cole Defense Lawyers to Guantanamo After They Quit

Attorneys Rick Kammen, Rosa Eliades and Mary Spears quit their jobs Oct. 11 as lawyers for the man accused of orchestrating al-Qaida's warship attack. They obtained permission to do so from the chief defense counsel, Marine Brig. Gen. John Baker, who found "good cause" for their resignations. They cited a cascading ethical conflict over a lack of confidence in the confidentiality of their privileged conversations with Abd al Rahim al-Nashiri at Guantanamo, but the details are classified.

But the case judge, Air Force Col. Vance Spath, wrote in an Oct. 16 order that, while Baker "purported to find good cause" to approve their leaving the case, Spath, as judge, has not. "Accordingly, Mr. Kammen, Ms. Eliades, and Ms. Spears remain counsel of record in this case, and are ordered to appear at the next scheduled hearing," Spath wrote.

US lawmakers seek vote to abandon Saudi-led war in Yemen

A bipartisan quartet of House lawmakers is wrangling with the chamber’s leadership for a floor vote to withdraw U.S. military support for Saudi involvement in Yemen’s civil war.

California Democratic Rep. Ro Khanna, who is pressing for the vote, said Tuesday that he is in negotiations with Democratic and Republican leadership about whether the resolution is privileged under the War Powers Act and would therefore get an automatic, fast-tracked floor vote.

Such a vote, Khanna said, is likely to unite progressive Democrats and non-interventionist Republicans — though the outcome is unclear. “You may get many Democrats and Freedom Caucus members,” Khanna said, referring to the conservative wing of the House GOP caucus.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I hope that the House does overturn the AUMF; unfortunately, such a vote will most likely be vetoed by President Trump, because he believes (without a shred of evidence, other than that conjured up by Saudi Arabia and Israel) that Iran is gaining a strong foothold in Yemen.

My bet is that this slaughter in Yemen will continue unabated, to the point of nearly assassinating every last Yemeni child, woman, and medically fragile elderly person, if they haven't already dropped dead from malnutrition and cholera.

Of course, to Saudi Arabia's Prince Salmon, AKA the Butcher of Yemen, the ends, done through the commission of US government-enabled war crimes against the Yemeni people, justifies the means.

Air Force: Pilots recalled under Trump order will serve as instructors, staff

The Air Force expects fewer than 200 retired pilots will return to active duty and serve as instructor pilots and in rated staff positions under an executive order issued by President Trump.

The Pentagon originally said after the order was signed Friday that as many as 1,000 retired pilots could be brought back for up to three years. But in a gaggle with reporters Monday at the Pentagon, Brig. Gen. Mike Koscheski, the head of a task force dedicated to fixing the Air Force’s pilot shortfall, said it likely won’t be that many.

Koscheski also said there are no plans now to have those recalled pilots fly other aircraft, such as fighters, bombers, tankers or mobility aircraft, though he could not rule out that changing at some point if the pilot shortfall continues and worsens.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have to wonder at that last bit; what if pilots recalled do not wish to instruct or fly again; will they be involuntarily recalled?!?

Brig. Gen. Mike Koscheski, one cannot have this program both ways; and why is the crisis hitting now?!? Could it not have been forseen, and corrected for earlier, before we were at risk of a potential major war in Asia (North Korea) and another war in the Middle East (Iran)?!?

Gearing up for nuclear war is not a way to prevent nuclear war

During the Cold War, the United States kept nuclear-armed bombers on 24-hour ready alert in case our conflict with the Soviet Union ever turned hot. Thankfully, that readiness was never put to use, and after the Cold War ended in 1991, the bombers were no longer kept on standby, ready to strike.

Until, perhaps, now. As Defense One reported Sunday evening, the Air Force is preparing to revive that alert status in anticipation of an order to do so from President Trump in connection to North Korea.

RELATED: Air Force prepares for possible order to put nuclear-armed bombers back on alert

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A US-government generated war against North Korea would immediately put China in the position of having to defend it, as its client state.

Just because something is the most ham-fistedly, pig-headedly stupid thing that the US government could possibly do, unfortunately, is utterly no guarantee that the US government won't do it.

Right now, North Korea's Kim Jung Un is keeping to himself rather quietly, in terms of missile testing, so is giving the US government and military utterly no reason to fly off the handle at it. And in a statement by the North Korean government, about one week ago, the following has been announced:

A North Korean official reaffirmed Pyongyang's commitment to developing a long-range intercontinental ballistic missile capable of reaching "all the way to the East coast of the mainland US," on Monday, telling CNN that the rogue nation is currently not interested in diplomacy with the US until it achieves that goal. North Korea is not ruling out diplomacy, but "before we can engage in diplomacy with the Trump administration, we want to send a clear message that the DPRK has a reliable defensive and offensive capability to counter any aggression from the United States," the official said.

In spite of being called "Reckless" and "Crazy" by US and other Western media, Kim Jung Un appears to be to be quite sane and pragmatic. The development of these nuclear weapons are to act as a deterrent only to any Western attempt at regime change in North Korea. Kim understands that should he first-strike any American asset, or geopolitical friend in the region, that attack would leave North Korea a puddle of molten glass, courtesy of a US-led coalition, consisting of South Korea and Japan.

My concern here is that, failing to give the US government the "justification" which it craves in labeling North Korea as the "baddie" to be attacked mercilessly, that the US will simply create one for North Korea, by way of a false flag incident; false flags have long been a tool of US statescraft.

What the Occupied, Unhinged, Surveilled States of America need, and right the heck now, is a legitimate "Department of Peace", tasked with identifying, and implementing, peaceful means of meeting geopolitical objectives, which do not involve regime changes, or wars.

Of course, that... would be logical.

Israel Sold Advanced Weapons to Myanmar During anti-Rohingya Ethnic Cleansing Campaign

Israel refuses to stop arms sales to Myanmar, despite its campaign of rape, torture and massacres against the Rohingya

Top Secret Israel's top court just ruled about arms sales to Myanmar. But we're not allowed to tell you the verdict

Opinion Israel, partner in genocides.

“Welcome to the Myanmar Navy,” said the caption on the Myanmar Navy’s Facebook page, in honor of the arrival of an Israeli patrol boat to Myanmar’s shore. “The Super-Dvora MK III is moving forward at 45 knots on Myanmar waters,” the post continued. The post is from April, only half a year ago, when the Myanmar (Burmese) army was already being accused of war crimes.

Although the persecution of the Muslim minority in Myanmar, the Rohingya people, has become more intense in recent months, back in November 2016 the army was already being accused of brutality against them and of torching their villages. During that period tens of thousands of Rohingyans were expelled

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Israeli weapons manufacturers made their millions in these sales; the genocide created by the use of these weapons against a religious minority, getting thoroughly persecuted as "the other" by hypernationalist Buddhists is something to which they absolulely cannot relate.

Understanding the history of Israel, and the horrific experiences of many of its founding fathers and mothers, one cannot but help but find this mindset... painfully ironic.

Air Force F-35s coming to Japan in November

The Air Force’s F-35 is making its operational debut in the Asia-Pacific region, with 12 A-models set to arrive at Kadena Air Base, Japan, early this November for a six-month deployment.

More than 300 airmen from the 34th Fighter Squadron at Hill Air Force Base, Utah — including pilots, maintainers and other personnel — will deploy to Kadena to support the aircraft, Pacific Air Forces announced.

“The F-35A gives the joint warfighter unprecedented global precision attack capability against current and emerging threats while complementing our air superiority fleet,” said Gen. Terrence O’Shaughnessy, Pacific Air Forces commander. “The airframe is ideally suited to meet our command’s obligations, and we look forward to integrating it into our training and operations.”

My question is, will the deployment be before - or after - President Trump's upcoming visit to Beijing next month?!?

Pentagon advocates requiring women to sign up for military draft

The Pentagon says the country should stick with mandatory registration for a military draft, and it advocates a requirement for women to sign up for the first time in the nation’s history.

The recommendations are contained in a Defense Department report to Congress that serves as a starting point for a commission examining military, national and public service.

Congress ordered the Pentagon report, and the office of the undersecretary of defense for personnel and readiness completed it in the early months of the Trump administration.

Currently, only male citizens and residents age 18-25 are required to register, for a pace of about 2 million each year.

Women, whom the government has never ordered to sign up, would add 11 million to the Selective Service System database “in short order,” the report says.
President Carter restarted draft registration in 1980 as a message to Soviet leaders. Congress exempted women because they did not perform combat.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This recommendation is definitely a sign that more, and bigger wars are being planned by the US government, as are the very cute commercials, featuring actors playing military personnel, and receiving benefits and perks from various financial or other institutions.

I don't know what the Vegas odds on the reinstitution of the draft proper are right now, but I would imagine that given the current state of global instability (much of it US-government generated), I would not be surprised to see a draft reinstated in the coming 12 month period.

Kim Jung Un, for the moment, is playing it cool, and not waving any missile testing about. Although he may be described by Western outlets as "crazy", his, and his country's drive for a nuclear weapon is completely rational, when viewed purely as a deterrent, so that the US military cannot affect regime change in North Korea.

Kim Jung Un has the horse sense, I believe, to not attempt a first strike on any US targets, because he understands that should he do so, his country will be turned into a sea of molten glass by a US-led Coalition including South Korea, and Japan. North Korean Officials have stated that they will not be ready to negotiate with the US until his missiles have the capabilities to reach the US's east coast.

US Officials: Niger Is ‘Hub’ for US Operations in Western Africa

US officials describing the military operation in Niger, which only became public knowledge earlier this month after four US special forces were killed in an ambush, have not only revealed that nearly 1,000 US troops are on the ground in Niger, a massive force for the tiny country, but that this is the “hub” for US military operations in Western Africa.

Details on what exactly that means are scant, since the Niger military operation was basically a secret, and by extension so are all the other regional operations that we’re not being told about. Officials did assure reporters Niger has the most troops in the region.

Niger has hosted a US drone base for years, and about 100 troops were reported deployed in 2012. Somewhere between then and now, this increased ten-fold, and those troops started engaging in patrols. African Command says there are no armed US warplanes in West Africa at present, but that they rely on French warplanes.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

We are in Niger for the same reasons US troops are garrisoned all over the world; to insure its government is western-centric; to expropriate resources to which those companies supporting both political parties have utterly no moral right; and to insure that those resources are only sold to countries of which the US government approves, and only in the US dollar.

This is also, by the way, an insurance against Russia and China getting hold of those resources before US companies do.

In the U.S. Senate lawmakers have come up with a scheme to tear up the Bill of Rights so that only one message gets through to the public.

Timeline: Uranium Exec. Gave $31.3 Million to Clinton Foundation, Russian Bank Paid $500K to Bill Clinton

Presented below is a timeline of events involving former President Bill Clinton, uranium mining deals in Kazakhstan, multi-million dollar donations to the Clinton Foundation, and the U.S.-government approved sale of Uranium One to the Russian state-owned Rosatom, a purchase now under investigation by Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles Grassley (R-Iowa).

Information for this timeline is taken from two articles in The New York Times that were respectively published on Jan. 31, 2008 and April 23, 2015 – After Mining Deal, Financier Donated to Clinton and Cash Flowed to Clinton Foundation Amid Russian Uranium Deal. (They are designated in the timeline as NYT 1/31/08 and NYT 4/23/15.)

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It's the same old "pay for play" model the Clintons have used, very successfully, all their professional lives; but this time, it may come at a price of some kind of endictment, although I doubt that either will ever see any hard jail time.

IF they believe, for one second, that an indictment may be forthcoming, they will simply transfer what is left of their money in the US to a foreign private banking concern (as they have already done with much of the money collected by the Clinton Foundation), hop on board a private jet, and live in luxury in a country with no extradition treaty with the United States.

FBI Informant Has Emails and Video Evidence of Russian Efforts to Win Favor of Clintons in Uranium One Deal (Video)

In 2009 the FBI had substantial evidence that Russian nuclear industry officials were engaged in bribery, kickbacks, extortion and money laundering designed to grow Vladimir Putin’s atomic energy business inside the United States.

According to Senator Charles Grassley (R-IA) an FBI confidential informant holds information about the handling of a criminal probe linked to a controversial deal that ceded ownership of U.S. uranium assets to the Russian government.

Despite an ongoing criminal investigation into officials working for subsidiaries of Rosatom, the Russian government entity seeking to acquire ownership of U.S. uranium, the Obama Administration approved the deal. The Justice Department has reportedly threatened to prosecute the informant if he discloses details of his involvement in the investigation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The alleged "Justice Department", under Chief Justice Sessions, appears to have morphed into the "Just Us" department, constantly protecting those elite criminal members of society who make morally, if not legally, questionable deals and profit from those deals financially.

Thanks to Real-ID, DHS has created a national ID system right under everyone's noses.

According to the above video, Tennessee is 'Spreading the Good Word' that DHS now has the power to suspend and revoke anyone's drivers license or identification card.

A recent article in the Lebanon Democrat, reveals how DHS and the Tennessee DMV suspended more than a quarter of a million driver’s licenses (DL) for failure to pay traffic tickets.

"On Oct. 5, Judge Altea Trauger ordered the Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security to reinstate Fred Robinson and Ashley Sprague’s licenses by Oct. 11 or as soon after as possible."

"According to the complaint, Tennessee suspended more than a quarter of a million driver’s licenses for failure to pay traffic tickets, and in most cases, the drivers were too poor to pay."

Democrats Distance Themselves From Hillary: “New” DNC Denies Knowledge Of Trump Dossier Funding

Following the shocking (to some) revelations from WaPo with regard Hillary Clinton and the 'old' Democratic National Committee's financing of the infamous "Trump Dossier," the 'new' DNC has rushed out a press release denying any involvement as Democrats begin rapidly distancing themselves from this un-fake news. (...which must mean "it's a vast right wing conspiracy....")

Elites Move to Sacrifice Clintons

Because the Clintons are guilty of the crimes the elites are accusing Trump of committing, it’s likely the criminal couple will soon suffer the same fate as Harvey Weinstein to make the persecution of Trump not seem “political.” Already the mainstream media, which one year ago promoted Hillary Clinton as a “glowing goddess,” is slowly but surely publishing headlines linking the Clintons to the Russian Uranium One scandal.

FBI Director Wray is wrong about Section 702 surveillance

Newly-minted FBI Director Christopher Wray threw out several justifications for the continued, warrantless government search of American communications. He’s wrong on all accounts.

Sham science: Following the global warming model, leftists embrace quackery to attack conservative positions

So when the leftist political and MSM establishments attempt to explain to you that gun murders are a national health problem or the president is unhinged because “doctors said so,” remember what Big Tobacco used to tell Americans: “More doctors smoke camels than any other cigarette.”

Imagine My Shock! Bush Lies (Again)

G.W. Bush hasn’t an ounce of moral capital to criticize anyone, least of all Donald Trump, a President who, thus far, hasn’t acted remotely as reckless or immoral as he behaved for eight long years. The world, particularly the Middle East, is still suffering from his legacy.

Don’t Call the Cops If You’re Autistic, Deaf, Mentally Ill, Disabled or Old

Life in the American police state is an endless series of don’ts delivered at the end of a loaded gun: don’t talk back to police officers, don’t even think about defending yourself against a SWAT team raid (of which there are 80,000 every year), don’t run when a cop is nearby lest you be mistaken for a fleeing criminal, don’t carry a cane lest it be mistaken for a gun, don’t expect privacy in public, don’t let your kids walk to the playground alone, don’t engage in nonviolent protest near where a government official might pass, don’t try to grow vegetables in your front yard, don’t play music for tips in a metro station, don’t feed whales, and on and on.

The week’s news that wasn’t

A new law will take effect on January 1 that allows family or household members and law enforcement officials to seek an order from a judge to temporarily remove the gun rights of someone they believe poses an extreme risk of violence. Under one of these orders, police can remove guns from someone who refuses to surrender his arms. This is a blatant violation of the 4th and 5th Amendment rights of gun owners. The law was approved by the legislature over the summer and signed by Governor Kate Brown on August 15. Gun rights groups tried but failed by the deadline to gather enough signatures for a petition to put the law on the November 2018 ballot, meaning the law will take effect as scheduled. Such a law makes a mockery of due process and shows that yes, there are those who want to take our guns and they will stop at nothing to do so.

Undermining America — Walter Williams on the criminal left

What goes unappreciated is just why America’s leftists’ movement attacks the Founders. If they can delegitimize the Founders themselves, it goes a long way toward their agenda of delegitimizing the founding principles of our nation. If the leftists can convince the nation that men such as George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and James Madison were good-for-nothing slave-owning racists, then their ideas can be more easily trashed. We find the greatest assaults on our founding documents on the nation’s college campuses.

Pressure' on US Needed to Solve N Korea Crisis Diplomatically – Peace Activist

Amid the ongoing tensions over North Korea, the US is reportedly preparing to put its nuclear-armed B-52 bombers back on 24-hour alert, a measure unseen since 1991. Arthur West, Chairman of the Scottish Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament, explained why this decision is rather dangerous and what should be done instead to resolve the crisis.
Sputnik: Despite North Korea making significant progress with their nuclear weapons program… is this necessarily the right response from the US? What affect will this move have on the already delicate situation?

Arthur West (AW): The response by the United States is deeply depressing. I’m afraid it’s a very worrying development and I think it could escalate tensions. The response should be concentrated on a diplomatic solution to the issues.

Sputnik: From your perspective, instead of this constant ‘one upping’ of each other from the US and North Korea, what should be done to alleviate tensions between North Korea and the West?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

West is entirely correct in his assessment here; unfortunately, just because something is the most pig-headedly, hamn-fistedly stupid thing the US government could do, is absolutely no guarantee that it won't do it.

North Korea is developing its nuclear arsenal as a deterrent to any possible first strike from the US, and have no illusions about precisely what President Trump meant, during his tirade at the UN, screaming death and destruction for North Korea as well as Iran.

But would Kim Jung Un use such missiles in a first strike scenario?!? The answer would be "HELL no!", because they understand that such a move would cause their country to be turned into molten glass by a US military counterstrike.

US House Intel Committee Announces Inquiry Into Obama-Era Russian Uranium Deal

S House Intelligence Committee Chair Devin Nunes told reporters on Tuesday that they are launching a probe of the Russian uranium deal, dating back to the presidency of Barack Obama.

"What we are going to announce today is [an] inquiry of Russia into the Uranium deal that was several years ago," Nunes stated, adding that "this is just the beginning of this probe."

Nunes has explained that the lawmakers were concerned why the Congress was not informed the 2010 Russian deal involving US uranium. The strategic uranium deal was approved by a committee made up of representatives of US government agencies, including the State Department, then headed by Hillary Clinton.
