DHS EXPANDS POLICE SPYING BY ADDING SURVEILLANCE CAMERAS TO BUS STOPS

Not content with surveillance cameras on buses, the police state has now begun adding them to bus stops.

Last month an article in WTVR 6 revealed that the Greater Richmond Transit Center (GRTC) is installing more than one hundred surveillance cameras at bus stops.

What should really concern everyone is the amount of cameras being installed at each bus stop.

"Each of the 26 new stops, built to accommodate the bus line's need for more efficient transit, includes about four cameras, making for more than 100 new surveillance devices on the roughly 7.5-mile stretch of road..."

WTVR also revealed that police can use the cameras to spy on commuters 24/7.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This may, in and of itself, discourage mass transit, nationally, if a person has any other options available.

Welcome to the Unhinged, Surveilled State of Amerika; your papers, please!!

CIA EMAILS TO JOURNALISTS DON’T HAVE TO BE RELEASED TO PUBLIC, JUDGE RULES

Judge Colleen McMahon of the Southern District of New York ruled that the CIA does not have to release parts of five emails senior CIA officials sent to journalists from the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times and The Washington Post in 2012. At the time, the CIA was facing pressure over links it may have had to a Pakistani doctor who helped American forces hunt down Osama bin Laden.

The ruling came in a lawsuit filed by Adam Johnson, a freelance reporter, who was represented by a first amendment lawyer in New York City, Daniel Novack.

“The Director of Central Intelligence is free to disclose classified information about CIA sources and methods selectively, if he concludes that it is necessary to do so in order to protect those intelligence sources and methods, and no court can second guess his decision,” McMahon ruled.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is how the CIA attempts to create narrative, and "guide" the current course of history toward that narrative; this is also why the Independent Media is more important and precious to making informed decisions than ever.

JON RAPPOPORT: PSYCHIATRY AND THE GREAT FRAUD

THERE ARE NO DEFINITIVE LABORATORY TESTS FOR ANY SO-CALLED MENTAL DISORDER.

No defining blood tests, no urine tests, no saliva tests, no brain scans, no genetic assays.

And along with that:

ALL SO-CALLED MENTAL DISORDERS ARE CONCOCTED, NAMED, LABELED, DESCRIBED, AND CATEGORIZED by a committee of psychiatrists, from menus of human behaviors.

Their findings are published in periodically updated editions of The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), printed by the American Psychiatric Association.

For years, even psychiatrists have been blowing the whistle on this hazy crazy process of “research.”

Of course, pharmaceutical companies, who manufacture highly toxic drugs to treat every one of these “disorders,” are leading the charge to invent more and more mental-health categories, so they can sell more drugs and make more money.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am going to be able, as an American on Medicare and a Medicare supplement, to be able to see a personal care physician on Oahu, after a wait time of four and a half months.

And before I see her, I will make sure that I understand which pharmaceutical companies compensate her for prescribing their drugs. There is nothing I need from a standpoint of mental health, but in the spirit of full disclosure, I firmly believe that all this information should be disclosed to all patients getting medical care in the United States, so that they can make an informed, educated decision about taking a drug their doctor is getting compensated for prescribing, or asking for something else.

I was dealing with this a number of years ago with the same HMO, where one of the podiatrists to whose care I was assigned, used the words "off-book" prescription", which should have raised the hairs on the back of my neck, and caused them to tapdance.

It was later made public, that Pfizer was paying many physicians to prescribe this drug, and it is still a common practice today. Of course, no one went to jail for signing off on the practice; the elite rarely eat their own, and no doctor was punished.

While this is not illegal, as a form of passive income for physicians in the US, I find this practice as unethical as hell, when patients are not informed that Big Pharma compensates physicians for prescribing medications which may not be best suited to manage whatever condition the doctors are treating, because of this compensation.

This needs to change.

Giuliani Calls Feds "Stormtroopers," But In 1995, George H. W. Bush Quit NRA In Outrage After Its VP Compared Federal Agents To " Storm Troopers"

"I was outraged when, even in the wake of the Oklahoma City tragedy, Mr. Wayne LaPierre, executive vice president of N.R.A., defended his attack on federal agents as "jack-booted thugs." To attack Secret Service agents or A.T.F. people or any government law enforcement people as "wearing Nazi bucket helmets and black storm trooper uniforms - wanting to "attack law abiding citizens - is a vicious slander on good people..."

Israel Campaigns Against Global Free Speech

Alarmed at the rise of anti-Semitism and anti-Israeli sentiments on the internet, Israeli politicians recently called for nations around the world to enact legislation prohibiting criticism of Jews and Israel. Lobbying to outlaw global free speech is nothing new for Israel, however; it has been in the business of criminalizing speech for decades.

Alfie Evans’ Death Exposes The Government’s Real Agenda

You see, those who advocate for government-run healthcare attempt to sell it under the guise of “helping people” and “taking care of the least of these.”

But the case of Alfie Evans uncovers the chilling reality of the government using their power to strip parents of their right to protect their own children.

A Quick Thought On America’s Useless Trillion Dollar Military Industrial Complex

America is a country drowning in debt, slowly but surely, and the United States’ trillion dollar (annually) military-industrial complex, as Eisenhower put it more than half a century ago, is part of our national disaster. Before going all MAGA on me, just answer this question: when was the last time the US military defended the homeland? The answer is pretty simple if you know your history: in 1945. The sad truth is that the United States has world’s largest (and best funded) army, yet realistically speaking, it has no (military) enemies. No nation on Earth even comes close to having the capabilities of invading the US, and no desire to do so, or at least that’s how I view the world in 2018. Again, realistically speaking, the US military would do just fine with 20% of its actual budget.

Why Can’t the World’s Best Military Win Its Wars?

“Full spectrum dominance” was the watchword in a 2000 document, “Joint Vision 2020” (updated from a 1996 version), which the authors described as a “conceptual template” for the U.S. military’s evolution over the two decades to come. Its language was even more hubristic than that slogan suggests: “a force that is dominant across the full spectrum of military operations – persuasive in peace, decisive in war, preeminent in any form of conflict… prepared to win across the full range of military operations in any part of the world… [with the ability] to defeat any adversary and control any situation across the full range of military operations.”

Defeat any adversary? Control any situation?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As a Christian pacifist activist, I would very much appreciate it if this country tried to achieve its geopolitical goals with hard-won, intelligent, and morally honorable negotiations rather than through wars.

Unfortunately, the leadership of this country has gotten drunk on the smell of its own propaganda, and is both morally, and intellectually, slack, when it comes to finding other solutions to its perceived geopolitical challenges than war; I am very sorry to have to say this, but it is the God's truth right now.

The US government is riding herd over an empire in decline, and doing just what every empire, at this point in its devolution, does; fighting back with every bit of fire power at its descretion to prevent the inevitable. It may be able to postpone its demise, somewhat, but not prevent it.

Like everything else on this planet, empires have a life cycle; a beginning, a middle, and an end; we are very close to that end, at this moment in history.

Did John Bolton Leak Intelligence To Sabotage a Trump-Kim Deal?

The still-unscheduled Donald Trump-Kim Jong Un summit offers the opportunity for a denuclearization deal that would avoid a possible nuclear war, but that potential deal remains vulnerable to a hostile corporate media sector and political elites in the United States. At the center of this hostility is national security adviser John Bolton, who’s not just uninterested in selling a denuclearization deal to the public. He’s working actively to undermine it.

Strong circumstantial evidence indicates that he leaked intelligence to a Washington think tank sympathetic to his views in order to generate media questioning about the president’s announced plan to reach an agreement with North Korea’s leader.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

John (never met a war in which he wouldn't love to get the US military involved) Bolton is vehemently anti-peace, no matter how that peace may positively affect the daily lives of We the People.

And yes, President Trump seems to be moving in the right direction here, but Bolton will do his level best to scuttle the deal, no matter what it takes.

US plan of last push against ISIS raises specter of Syria partition

Announcing the start of military operations against the remaining strongholds of Islamic State, the US State Department included some pointed language, hinting at de facto partition of Syria, analysts tell RT.
“The days of ISIS controlling territory and terrorizing the people of Syria are coming to an end,” State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said on Tuesday.The operations will be conducted by the US-led coalition and local partners, including the Kurdish-majority Syrian Democratic Forces.

The US will also work with Turkey, Israel, Jordan, Iraq and Lebanon to “secure their borders” from Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL), Nauert said. This is intriguing, because the only remaining IS presence is near the Iraqi border, with a pocket south of Damascus currently being cleared out by Syrian government forces.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Neither the US nor Israel, are finished in Syria yet; not by a long shot.

Putin Tries Adding Weight To Iran Conflict With U.S.

Emmanuel Macron and Angela Merkel have an ally in Russia. When it comes to Washington (and Tel Aviv's) penchant for calling foul on the Iranian nuclear deal, the two largest economies in the eurozone can count on Vladimir Putin to stand in their corner.

Putin reiterated Russia's position that the Iranian nuclear deal made by former president Barack Obama is "of paramount importance for ensuring international stability and security" and must be "strictly observed by all parties," the Kommersant business daily reported on Tuesday.

Putin reportedly discussed the Iranian nuclear power deal with Israeli leader Benjamin Netanyahu, who just hours before had come out with his own intelligence agency's report alleging evidence that the Islamic Republic was indeed enriching uranium for military use and not just for energy use. The report said that Israel initiated the call.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF Israel goes to war against Iran, for allegedly "lying" about its nuclear weapons program, the entire world will most likely be sucked into this war, with Iran, Russia, and China on one side, and the US, Saudi Arabia, Israel, and NATO on the other.

There are times when the interests of Israel and the US government align; this is not one of those times, and President Trump is a consummate fool, if he decides to pull out of the P5+1 deal, as a prelude to this war.

I hope Russia's President Putin did mention to Israel's Prime Minister Netantahu, that should such a war happen, based upon Israel's lies about Iran's alleged nuclear weapons, there will be costs incurred by Israel, which may well be devastating to the country's potential for further existence.

Such a war, again, based on lies to control Iran's oil, and the currency in which it is sold, just as happened with Iraq, will break the Unhinged, Surveilled state of Amerika, morally, economically, and politically.

The US military, at this time in its history, doesn't have the money; the manufacturing; the weaponry; or the troop strength to insure a positive outcome against the forces which will be martialled against it.

Yes, the US government spends a lot of money for its weaponry; what it gets, is, generally, late, with horrific cost overruns, and many times obsolete upon delivery, or doesn't work as advertised.

I give you the Lockhee-Martin F-35 as an example here.

Should such a war happen, look for a return of the draft in the US, but this time, the process will be going after both our young men and our young women. There may well be massive riots against it, which the US government will put down with extreme prejudice. It is possible that the Constitution and Bill of Rights will be suspended, and martial law will be invoked.

WIKIPEDIA: OUR NEW TECHNOLOGICAL MCCARTHYISM, PART 1

Today, the internet, often thought of as our world's "final frontier" for free thinkers and the flow and exchange of ideas and information, is seriously ill. It has been systemically infected by ideological viruses, memes of information intent on poisoning freedom of expression that we take for granted every time we use Google or visit Facebook, Youtube and now the online encyclopedia Wikipedia. Censorship is not limited to the governments' attempts to silence dissent. Yet when it succeeds, society is greatly hindered because people no longer have easy access to the whole truth. Censorship is one of the most effective ways to lessen people's freedoms and numb the faculties for critical thought. And because the media, and having access to news and a wide variety of interpretations and opinions is at our finger tips, it has become a critical part of our daily lives.

ACTIVIST HOLDS UP SIGN SAYING POLICE HATE FREE SPEECH, SO THEY ARREST HIM TO PROVE HIM RIGHT

A free speech activist went to his local police department to point out that they dislike free speech and the immediately proved his point by arresting him for it.

free speech

Stamford, CT — Free speech and liberty activist, Michael Picard had harmed no one, had not committed a crime, and was merely expressing his right to free speech by claiming the Stamford PD dislikes free speech. Indeed, within just a few minutes, the chief of police himself came out to prove Picard right.
Last Thursday, Picard held a sign that said, “F*ck Free Speech —Stamford PD,” merely attempting to point out the gross violations of the First Amendment committed by the department after they arrested another activist, Michael Friend, for holding up a different sign warning drivers of a distracted driving checkpoint ahead.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

For some time, the Unhinged, Surveilled state of Amerika has stopped being a democratic republic, and has morphed into a full-on, Code Napoleon Law, banana republic, where those people in the police department who swear "to protect and serve", are generally caught trampling on the very rights they have have sworn to uphold.

What happened here in Stamford, is representative of what is happening nation-wide; police running rampant against peaceful First Amendment demonstrators, in a manor completely at odds with American law.

There are moments when I am ashamed to be a citizen of this country, and this...was one of those moments.

Unfortuntately, we are too broke and too old to qualify for citizenship elsewhere, but if it were possible, I think we would both leap at the chance.

NETANYAHU SLAMS IRAN FOR 'SECRET NUKE PROGRAM,' WON'T SAY WHETHER ISRAEL DEVELOPED NUKES IN SECRET

On CNN Tuesday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu criticized Iran for allegedly working to develop nuclear bombs in secret, but refused to say whether Israel did the same (in violation of US non-proliferation law).

From The Daily Caller:

“A ‘yes-no’ question for you,” [CNN’s Chris Cuomo] said. “You know where I’m going with this. Does Israel have nuclear capabilities and nuclear weapons, yes or no?”

“We’ve always said that we won’t be the first to introduce it, so we haven’t introduced it,” Netanyahu replied.

“That’s not an answer to the question. Do you have them or do you not?” Cuomo asked.

“It’s as good an answer as you’re going to get,” Netanyahu said. “Iran said they don’t have this nuclear weapons program and Iran calls daily for the annihilation of my country. We don’t do that.”
Cuomo admitted Iran has a reputation for being dishonest but continued to press the prime minister about his country’s nuclear program.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Prime Minister Netanyahu, a word, please; on that last statement of yours, " “One thing is clear, Israel is not threatening the annihilation of any country.”, our BED (Bovine Excrement Detector) re-kitted, completely, and will have to be immediately replaced.

The next time this happens, sir, we will be left with no option, other than billing the Israeli government for its replacement, because the world knows ...you, and your government in Tel Aviv, are full of it!!

And I would like to add, sir, that every dollar, and every weapon, the US government gives to Israel is illegal, under the Syminton Amendment, and the Glenn Amendment

The Symington Amendment, and the Glenn Amendement

These amendments state quite clearly:

"The Foreign Assistance Act of 1961 was amended by the Symington Amendment (Section 669 of the FAA) in 1976. It banned U.S. economic, and military assistance, and export credits to countries that deliver or receive, acquire or transfer nuclear enrichment technology when they do not comply with IAEA regulations and inspections. This provision, as amended, is now contained in Section 101 of the Arms Export Control Act (AECA).

The Glenn Amendment (Section 670) was later adopted in 1977, and provided the same sanctions against countries that acquire or transfer nuclear reprocessing technology or explode or transfer a nuclear device. This provision, as amended, is now contained in Section 102 of the Arms Export Control Act (AECA)."

Please note that legally, Israel has no exemption from these laws, except for the reality that the Unhinged, Surveilled State of Amerika is not a country ruled by law, but a country ruled by corrupt individuals.

AMAZON ORDERS SIGNAL TO STOP USING AWS TO DEFEAT CENSORSHIP

Repressive autocracies like Egypt, Oman, and the UAE ban Signal and other encrypted messaging apps, using national firewalls to try to block their traffic; Signal evades these blocks by using "domain fronting," in which the service's cloud provider shows up as the origin of its traffic, forcing countries to block Google or Amazon to get at a single service hiding behind them.

The cloud companies don't like this; Google has terminated its domain-fronting service, prompting Signal to move to Amazon for its censorship-evasion cutout; now, Amazon has ordered Signal to cease using Amazon Web Services to defeat censorship or face having its account terminated.

There are legitimate reasons not to like domain-fronting; it allows both good actors (Signal) and bad actors (fraudsters, hackers, malware purveyors, spammers) to disguise the origin of their traffic.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

At was just a matter of time before Google and Amazon became instruments of government suppression; and we are right there, right now.

OIL REFINERY SPEWS 8.5 TONS OF CYANIDE GAS OVER LOW-INCOME COMMUNITY EACH YEAR

Recent tests have shown that an oil refinery in Denver called Suncor Energy has been spewing over 8.5 tons of cyanide gas over the low-income communities that surround it. Oddly enough, the refinery is exempt from disclosing their cyanide emissions to the public, but independent tests have shown their output of the gas to be astronomical.

In fact, according to Cross Community Coalition director Candi Cdebaca, air quality control officials actually gave the refinery a special permit that allows them to release levels of toxins that surpass recommended levels.

“It’s absurd to think state health officials would even consider granting permits to pollute more. The state health officials are completely failing to protect these neighborhoods. And they are disregarding the cumulative impact of the many pollutants in the area. The ideal would be we aren’t letting them put that into the air at all, and if they are, we would know how to respond,” Cdebaca said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is yet another demonstration of the reality that in 21st century Amerika, corporations are kings, and everyday people are just...expendable.

US JUDGE ORDERS IRAN TO PAY BILLIONS TO FAMILIES OF 9/11 VICTIMS

Tehran has been ordered by a US court to pay more than $6 billion to victims of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, despite the fact that most of the plane hijackers were Saudi nationals, and no direct link was ever found to Iran.
On Tuesday, a federal judge in New York found Iran, the country’s central bank, and the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps liable for the deaths of more than 1,000 people in the September 11 attacks. As a consequence, District Judge George Daniels ordered Iran and its entities to pay over $6 billion in compensation to the victims’ families.

The default judgment seeks compensation of $12.5 million per spouse, $8.5 million per parent, $8.5 million per child, and $4.25 million per sibling. The US could potentially retrieve the sum from billions of dollars in Iranian assets that were frozen in the US and Europe over the years. This is unlikely, however, as the ruling is seen as symbolic and unenforceable.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

More sound and fury, signifying absolutely nothing, other than heaping more scorn and demonisation against Iran ahead of 12 May, when President Trump makes the go/no go decision about decertifying Iran's compliance with the P5+1 accord.

And please remember; as of this moment, the IAEA team which has been certifying Iran's full compliance with the deal, says that they are still in complete compliance with it.

The last thing these people are...are idiots.

IF the US withdraws from the agreement, to placate Israel's Prime Minister Netanyahu, it will be a breathtakingly lousy moment in the history of the world, because Israel will probably haul off, and attack Iran directly, or attack its assets in Syria.

In fact, with Israeli police stating that they have enough info with which to indict Netanyahu on corruption charges, Israeli PM faces toughest political challenge, but is unlikely to go quietly,,he may in fact feel that a war with Iran, in Syria, or against Iran proper, may be his only options for deflecting a trial on corruption charges.

And if he thinks and feels that such a trial is imminent, he may well haul off far before the 12 May date, at which President Trump is to make the decision as to whether the US believes Iran in compliance with the P5+1 deal.

Of course, given that the world knows he may be going on trial for corruption, the optics will be horrible; but in order to save his own political skin from ruin, he may decide that a war, where hundreds of thousands of people may well die, is far preferable than having to defend himself in court.

This is simply the way the man thinks.

I would like to hope that he understands that the 6,000 lb gorilla, snoozing on the Bosendorfer grand in this situation... is Russia.

Russia has historically stated, and this comes from both civilian and military leadership, that should Iran be attacked, Russia will come to its aid militarily.

However, unfortunately, looking at Netanyahu's characteristic hubristic behaviour, I doubt that this will factor into his decision to attack either Iran, or Iran's assets in Syria, if he feels the coming trial is "too close for comfort."

HOW WESTERN MEDDLING AND A DUST BOWL DROUGHT IGNITED SYRIA’S CIVIL WAR

The reported “chemical attack” at Douma, Russia has claimed, was fake news. One U.S. news agency has now confirmed from the location of the reported attack that April 7, 2018 was an uneventful day in this Syrian city and not one single person in Douma corroborated the story of a chemical attack taking place.
It is the latest in a long series of false-flag reports generated about Syria by the United States and forces that oppose the government of President Bashar al Assad. This trickery dates back to at least 2006, when a WikiLeaks cable exposed U.S. political treachery at its very worst; calculated meddling designed to harm the government and population of Syria.

In this article we will review false revelations and calculated moves undertaken by politicians to undermine Syria’s government, which is designed to provide protection to religious minorities and freedom for people of all faiths, who lived securely in Syria until civil war broke out in 2011.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unfortunately, I fear that the dark spectre of US intervention in Syria is far from over, as indicated by the following report:


23 CIVILIANS KILLED IN SYRIA IN SUSPECTED US COALITION AIR STRIKES

As happened in Iraq, and most probably soon to happen against Iran, this is all about the control of Middle Eastern oil, and in what currencies it will be allowed to be sold.

And the other question which has to be asked is the following; how long will Russia allow this nonsense to continue, without lashing out, militarily?!?

HOMESCHOOLERS TURN OUT IN DROVES TO DEFEAT INTRUSIVE CALIFORNIA BILL

Don’t mess with homeschoolers: That’s the lesson California lawmakers, like their counterparts in Hawaii, learned last week when hundreds of homeschoolers and their allies descended upon Sacramento in opposition to intrusive legislation — and won.
At issue was a bill sponsored by Assemblyman Jose Medina, a Democrat, that “would have categorized the type of school on a form filed by private educators. One of the categories was homeschools. The state considers homeschools as private schools when it comes to state regulation,” reported GVWire.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Good on California homeschoolers!

But they are going to have to remain vigilant, because more laws of this nature are going to be introduced, to try to get the homeschooling concept to become illegal, because home schooled kids are, in large part, taught to think critically.

Critical thinkers are a danger to The State, because they can spot logic flaws, which do not benefit We the People, in a millisecond.

Under Cover of Iran, Netanyahu Just Took Three New Steps Toward Fascism

As the prime minister spoke, however, as a war-anxious nation and an attentive, approving White House hung on his every word, a little over 30 miles up the road, in Jerusalem, a mortal threat to Israel was being assembled under our very noses. In the Knesset, no less. A set of three time bombs, complex, deadly, radioactive.

Each of them a step toward annihilating Israel as we have come to know it. Each of them a step toward dictatorial rule, toward fascism. Each of them approved by – spurred by – Netanyahu himself.

Netanyahoo To Again Cry Wolf - But Something Bigger Is Up (Updated)

U.S. President Trump wants to end the nuclear agreement (pdf) with Iran and wants to eliminate Iranian forces in Syria which support the Syrian government. Something is being prepared to make that happen.

Last week General Joseph Votel, commander of CENTCOM - the U.S. military command for the Middle East, was in Israel. It was the first ever visit of a CENTCOM commander to Israel which usually works with the European command EUCOM.

Yesterday former CIA director and now Secretary of State Pompeo visited Israel. A few hours later Israel bombed two ammunition depots in Syria which are supposedly related to Iran. This was a clear attempt to provoke Iran into some reaction.

The Israeli defense minister Lieberman just visited Washington DC and only today came back to Israel.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When leadership from both the US and Israel are wracking up the frequent flyer miles to each others' capitals, I get ..... very nervous; and the current flurry of activity is no exception.

UN nuclear agency: ‘No credible indications’ of Iran nuclear activity after 2009

The United Nations's nuclear agency on Tuesday rejected claims from Israel's Benjamin Netanyahu that Iran's government is conducting nuclear weapons research in secret.

In an assessment released Tuesday, the International Atomic Energy Agency wrote that there is "no credible indications" to support claims that Iran was continuing its "coordinated" nuclear weapons program after 2009, The Associated Press reports.

Netanyahu made the claims Monday in a speech in Tel Aviv as part of his effort to urge President Trump to scrap the Iran nuclear deal, signed in 2015 under the Obama administration, which was meant to ensure Iran does not complete development of a nuclear weapon.

Critics say the deal is too weak and has led to Iran pursuing the weapons in secrecy.

On Monday, Netanyahu called the deal "terrible" and urged Trump to do the "right thing" and exit the agreement with Iran.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A memo to Israel's Prime Minister Netanyahu; you may be able to lie the President of the United States into contributing to a war against Iran, but this time, you cannot lie the American people into wanting such a war.

The US government and military going to war against Iran on a fabrication, just as it did against Iraq, which it declared to have "weapons of mass destruction", which it did not, was simply about controlling Iraq's oil, and in what internationally currency it would be sold; ultimately, the same will be true of Iran.

But to Netanyahu and Trump, I offer the following caveat from Sun Suu, from "The Art of War", paraphrased: soldiers must believe that they have the moral high ground on their side. The Iranians do, should such a war happen, because they are defending their country; the US, and Israel, will not.

And then, there is the 6,000 lb gorilla, snoozing on top of the Bosendorfer Grand; that 6,000 lb gorilla, right now, is Russia, whose military and political leadership have collectively vowed to protect Iran, should it be attacked militarily.

Were I Netanyahu and/or President Trump, I would be thinking about this very, very carefully right now, before either leader does something potentially catastrophic against Iran.

Israel ready to bomb Iran if necessary: Report

Israeli defense officials have told their American and Russian counterparts that if Iranian-backed forces attack Israel from inside Syria, Jerusalem will not hold back from retaliating with direct strikes against Tehran or other targets in Iran.

The officials delivered the message ahead of a national security statement expected Monday from Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in response to Iranian threats to hit Israel after recent strikes on Tehran-backed assets in Syria, according to a report by Haaretz, an Israeli newspaper.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation: look for a massive Israeli "false flag", to appear to have be created by the Iranian military against Israeli from Syria, and this war is off and running.

I would like to hope that Russian President Putin, in a conference call with Netanyahu, has completely disabused Netanyahu about pulling a stunt like this; however, one can never account for the ways in which Israeli hubris can lead to a catastrophe, as it well might under these circumstances.

And please note: such Israeli raids against Syria are against a soverign nation, which has invited Russian and Iranians there to help clamp down on Western-funded jihadists, are illegal under international law.

Syrian Army Conducts Intensive Air Strikes on Terrorists' Dens South of Damascus

Syrian state media reported Monday that the Syrian Army has conducted precision and intensive airstrikes on fortified militant positions in the Al-Hajar al-Aswad area to the south of Damascus.

According to SANA, Syria's state news agency, the Syrian Air Force carried out an intensive bombardment of fortified positions and infiltration routes used by terrorists in the area and inflicted heavy personnel and equipment losses upon them.

The reporter stressed that military operations against terrorist groups in the area will not stop until they are completely wiped out from the south of Damascus. At the same time, the Syrian government is beginning to implement the evacuation agreement reached Sunday with the jihadist group Tahrir al-Sham, also known as al-Qaeda in Syria.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Syria, with Russia's help, is turning the tide against these jihadists, many of whom were funded and trained by the US government, and other Westerm entities.

But color me extraordinarily nervous about just what the US and Israel are going to do at this point, and just how much nonsense Russia's President Putin is going to put up with, before he orders an escalation of Russian troops against US/Israeli raids.

U.S. CONFIRMS DELIVERY OF JAVELIN ANTITANK MISSILES TO UKRAINE

The United States has confirmed to RFE/RL its delivery of American-made, Javelin antitank missile systems to Ukraine in a move that is welcome in Kyiv but will almost certainly enrage Moscow amid a four-year conflict that pits Russia-backed separatists against Ukrainian national troops.

"They have already been delivered," a U.S. State Department official confirmed on April 30 in response to an RFE/RL query on the handover of Javelins.

A shipment of lethal aid would appear to deepen U.S. involvement in the simmering conflict and mark at least a symbolic victory for Ukraine in its effort to maintain Western backing in the ongoing conflict.

After months of heated debate in Washington and, reportedly, much reluctance on the part of U.S. President Donald Trump, the White House was said to have approved the Javelin sale in December.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And to add insult to injury, we see the following headline in whatdoesitmean.com:

As ATO Ends, joint forces operations are launched against Donbas

Both stories, taken together, do not augur well for peace in the region, and make the possibility of a Russian war against the US and NATO in Ukraine that much more potentially palpable.

Fr. Coughlin explains the Federal Reserve, 1940: This privately owned corporation 'thrives on misery' and is 'leading this country into chaos'

Fr. Coughlin begins "On December 23, 1913- 27 years ago- a Federal Reserve Act was approved by the Congress of the United States. This Act permitted bankers to establish a bankers' bank- or, to be more precise, 12 bankers' banks situated one in each regional division of the United States of America... In other words, the Federal Reserve Banking System is a privately owned corporation. It is not a Government owned corporation as some persons believe. ...It is both amusing and alarming to learn that not only some factory workers but also some professional and business men labor under the impression that the Federal Reserve banking system is a Government owned corporation."

Trump could let Pollard go to Israel in honor of embassy launch – report

US Donald Trump seems increasingly likely to attend the opening of the US Embassy in Jerusalem next month, and is thinking of allowing convicted spy Jonathan Pollard to come to Israel at the same time, a TV news report said.

The president, who has publicly said he is interested in attending, is being pressured to go to Israel for the ceremony by supporters and donors, Hadashot TV news reported Sunday.

Trump is also considering allowing Pollard, a former American intelligence specialist, to leave the US to come to Israel, the report said. Pollard served nearly 30 years for spying for Israel, and since being paroled in 2015 has been prohibited from leaving US soil, preventing him from moving to the Jewish state.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mr. President, what are you unable to absoflippinglutely not comprehend about what this man did to US intelligence, and how people died because of his actions?!?

Johnathan Pollard was one of the worst trators of the 20th century who deserved what he got.

Sir, I am asking you to please not go here, Mr. President.

WHY WE HAVE A SURVEILLANCE STATE

Increasingly, we live under the kind of comprehensive surveillance predicted by science fiction writers. But Palantir is just an arms merchant, not the architect of our brave new world. Like gun manufacturers, its products can be used for good or evil. I have always believed that moral responsibility lies with the wielder of weapons, not the manufacturers. (This is often expressed as “Guns don’t kill people, people kill people.”)

Peter Thiel’s choice to become an arms merchant rather than invest his considerable talents and fortune elsewhere is a fair question given his libertarian leanings. I have no insight into the answer. I would guess that he founded Palantir as an act of patriotism after 9/11, and it metastasized following the money, cash being the mother’s milk of the state, something the celebrated Alexander Hamilton deeply understood.

SURVEILLANCE IS NOT THE PROBLEM, BUT IT IS A SYMPTOM

POLICE CADETS QUIT, EXPOSE DEPT. FOR TRAINING COPS TO VIEW PUBLIC AS ‘COCKROACHES’ THEY’RE AT WAR WITH

It takes at least four years of college for an enlisted person in the military to become a military “officer,” which is quite a contrast from the mere nine months it takes for a police officer to earn the title. But according to a group of 10 former Austin Police Department recruits who wanted to become peace officers, just like the military, the Austin PD is training “warriors” instead of “guardians.”

The former recruits are now blowing the whistle and claiming that the type of mentality they encountered is not what they signed up for and is not representative of the greater Austin community. KVUE writes:

Summer Spisak, a 38-year-old former tech employee who participated in nine weeks of the eight-month academy last year, said instructors told her and other cadets they would “punch them in the face” if they said they wanted to be police officers to help people.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This mindset, coupled with frequent Israeli IDF training (which encourages peace officers to treat suspects the way Israel treats the Palestinians), has led to a real societal problem with the way police generally the treat people they are sworn to protect.

We are very lucky here on Oahu, that the cops are generally polite, respectful, and responsible. We have one HPD officer who lives very near where we do, and they are just a delight to be with.

President Donald J. Trump Proclaims May 2018 as Jewish American Heritage Month

"Jewish Americans have helped guide the moral character of our Nation. They have maintained a strong commitment to engage deeply in American society while also preserving their historic values and traditions. Their passion for social justice and showing kindness to strangers is rooted in the beliefs that God created all people in his image and that we all deserve dignity and peace. These beliefs have inspired Jewish Americans to build mutual-support societies, hospitals, and educational institutions that have enabled them and their fellow Americans to advance American society. Jewish Americans marched for civil rights in Selma and fought for the freedom of their brethren behind the Iron Curtain. Through their actions, they have made the world a better place..."

Say goodbye to Alexa and hello to gadgets listening to the voice inside your head

Controlling your gadgets by talking to them is so 2018. In the future, you won’t even have to move your lips.

A prototype device called AlterEgo, created by MIT Media Lab graduate student Arnav Kapur, is already making this possible. With Kapur’s device—a 3-D-printed plastic doodad that looks kind of like a skinny white banana attached to the side of his head—he can flip through TV channels, change the colors of lightbulbs, make expert chess moves, solve complicated arithmetic problems, and, as he recently showed a 60 Minutes crew, order a pizza, all without saying a word or lifting a finger. It can be used to let people communicate silently and unobtrusively with each other, too.

“I do feel like a cyborg, but in the best sense possible,” he says of his experience with the device, which he built as a research project.

WHY IS ISRAEL DESPERATE TO ESCALATE SYRIAN CONFLICT?

After seven years of utter devastation and bloodletting, a consensus has emerged among all the belligerents of the Syrian war to de-escalate the conflict, except Israel which wants to further escalate the conflict because it has been the only beneficiary of the carnage in Syria.

Over the years, Israel has not only provided medical aid and material support to the militant groups battling the Syrian government – particularly to various factions of the Free Syria Army (FSA) and al-Qaeda’s Syrian affiliate al-Nusra Front in Daraa and Quneitra bordering the Israel-occupied Golan Heights – but Israel’s air force has virtually played the role of the air force of the Syrian jihadists and has conducted more than 100 airstrikes in Syria and Lebanon during the seven-year conflict.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In the view of Tel Aviv, Syria must be neutralized before there can be a meaningful attack against Iran, primarily with American troops, and the costs borne in American blood and American money, which the US government does not have.

But the one question President Trump needs to ask himself, if he goes full-tilt buggie on Syria and Iran, by way of an invasion, and a greater war, is just what Russia's President Putin will do to respond to such acts.

And President Trump had better think long and hard about this, because today, the US military doesn't have the money; the weaponry; the manufacturing; or the troop strength to insure a positive outcome to a war against either Syria or Iran, or possibly both.

BUSINESSES WILL USE FACIAL BIOMETRICS TO CREATE THEIR OWN WATCH LISTS

All across the country businesses are being encouraged to use facial recognition to identify everyone.

Companies like DeepCam, have been been secretly working for three years, to create a facial recognition customer watch list system.

"After three years in stealth mode, DeepCam has released Retail by DeepCam,a system that will transform retail loss prevention. Retail byDeepCam is a plug-and-play system that drastically reduces retail shrink and slashes operational costs through a proprietary biometric-enhanced recommendation engine. "

How will DeepCam transform retail loss prevention?

DeepCam's selling points are instant recognition of bad actors and much more.

"DeepCam recognizes biometric signatures and suspicious behaviors so you can respond the moment bad actors walk through the door."

Soon businesses will use DeepCam's 'recommendation engine' to identify customers before they have stepped inside their store.

IN ‘BIZARRE’ TELEVISED EVENT, NETANYAHU PUSHES US TOWARD WAR WITH IRAN

In a “bizarre” performance that conjured memories of former national security adviser Colin Powell’s infamous weapons of mass destruction speech in 2002, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday theatrically deployed props and powerpoint slides in an attempt to distort facts and convince his “audience of one“—U.S. President Donald Trump—that Iran is failing to comply with the nuclear accord.

“Iran lied, big time, after signing the nuclear deal in 2015,” Netanyahu claimed from a stage in Tel Aviv, Israel, dramatically unveiling shelves of disks and binders that he insisted contain conclusive proof that Iran is still pursuing nukes.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As long as I have breath in me, I will peacefully continue to protest such a war, which is not at ALL in the interests of the American people, but Netanyahu's painfully obvious attempt, on completely fabricated evidence, to have America's military "neutralize" Iran for him, with all the costs being borne with American blood, and financed with US dollars.

Were I a betting woman, I would bet that President Trump will go along with this, as he has no intelligent alternate views on Iran, voiced to him by his cabinet, other than what Netanyahu spoon feeds him, which is fabrication after fabrication after fabrication.

The IAEA knows precisely where the site is which Netanyahu described in his tirade, and also knows that there is no secret nuclear program going on there; it is simply a lie, to attempt to get the American people to follow President Trump's lead on a war against Iran.

But after the Colin Powell speech about Iraq's "yellow cake uranium", and Saddam's WMDs, the American people are, hopefully, a lot more sceptical concerning what Netanyahu is willing to lie about to get a war started.

GOLDMAN FINED $110 MILLION FOR "IMPROPERLY" RIGGING THE FX MARKET

First Deutsche, then BNP, and now it's Goldman's turn to pay the Fed a token fee for making billions in manipulating the FX market from 2008 to 2013.

The Department of Financial Service announced on Tuesday that Goldman had agreed to pay the Federal Reserve $54.75 million, and an identical fine to the New York financial regulator, to settle claims that the bank allowed its foreign exchange traders to wrongly share customer information with traders from other global banks and engage in questionable conduct.

Furthermore, it appears that Goldman was the latest bank to participate in infamous FX rigging "chatoorms" which its traders used to discuss their positions on currency trades away from regulatory scrutiny.

The violation announced today stems from an investigation by DFS determining that from 2008 to early 2013, Goldman engaged in unlawful, unsafe and unsound conduct by failing to implement effective controls over its foreign exchange business.

Ron Paul: Baby Alfie, the Latest Victim of Omnipotent Government

Twenty-three-month-old Alfie Evans, passed away in a British hospital on Saturday. While the official cause of death was a degenerative brain disease, Alfie may have been murdered by the British health system and the British high court. Doctors at the hospital treating Alfie decided to remove his life support, against the wishes of Alfie’s parents. The high court not only upheld the doctors’ authority to override the parents’ wishes, it refused to allow the parents to take Alfie abroad for treatment.

In upholding the government’s authority to substitute its judgment for that of Alfie’s parents, the high court is following in the footsteps of authoritarians throughout history.

America's Jews Are Driving America's Wars

UPDATE: On the morning of September 21st Phil Giraldi was fired over the phone by The American Conservative, where he had been a regular contributor for fourteen years. He was told that “America’s Jews Are Driving America’s Wars” was unacceptable. The TAC management and board appear to have forgotten that the magazine was launched with an article by founder Pat Buchanan entitled “Whose War?” which largely made the same claims that Giraldi made about the Jewish push for another war, in that case with Iraq. Buchanan was vilified and denounced as an anti-Semite by many of the same people who are now similarly attacking Giraldi.

WW3 ALERT: Iran Threatens ‘Strikes Will Be Met With Force’ After US-led Syria Attacks - Mac Slavo

Iran has issued a chilling new warning to the United States an allied forces which allegedly coordinated an attack on Syria on Sunday. Iran’s supreme leader Ali Khamenei has warned that attacks on Iranian military bases by the US or its allies will not be tolerated and will be met with “firm force.”

Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, supreme leader of Iran, has launched a blistering verbal attack against the US in the wake of missile strikes on Syrian bases in Hama and Aleppo on Sunday night, according to The Daily Star. In a bellicose speech on Monday, Khamenei accused the US of causing a “regional crisis” in the Middle East by creating “instability” that has “brought misery to people.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

We the People are no longer in control of this government; the American deep state, and the military industrial complex are in complete control, no matter who sits at that desk in the Oval Office.

As a Christian Pacifist Activist, who fervently believes that the US should be resolving its geopolitical issues with moral, hard-won negotiations, rather than bombs and bullets, all I can do is witness, as I do at this blog, and pray that there will be some mechanism to stop what I see coming, which is a global war, with Iran, China, Russia on one side, and the US, NATO, Israel, and Saudi Arabia on the other.

Iran: The True Focal Point for the IMF-NATO Hegemony, by Jeremiah Johnson

The “Iranian problem” is one that was created by the United States and Britain decades ago. Mossadegh was removed from office when the Shah was inserted…that selfsame Shah who supported Anglo-American oil interests in his country until Ayatollah Khomeini sparked the Iranian Islamic Revolution in ’79. That revolution began the takeover of the U.S. embassy in Teheran and the hostage situation that effectively ended the Carter presidency (rather his actions to resolve it, such as Operation Desert One). President Reagan came in, the hostages were released, Iran and Iraq fought a bloody war, and relations with the U.S. were discontinued.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Absoflippinglutely unbelievable, but consistently predictable from this government, no matter who is allegedly guiding it as President.

Does President Trump think, for a millisecond, that Russia's President Putin will just hold hands with the Duma, and sing "Kumbyah" at a concerted set of US/Israeli airstrikes against Syria?!? I would respectfully suggest that this only will happen after pigs discover they are aerodynamic.

A war with Russia over Syria is as insane as it can possibly get, unless you factor in the war Netanyahu wants the US to fight against Iran, which would be another idiotic thing for this Administration to decide to do.

Unfortunately, just because something is the most ham-fistedly, pig-headedly stupid thing for the US government to do, is utterly no guarantee that it won't do it.

If President Trump goes for both of these wars (after an "alleged" terrorist false flag inside this country, or against American interests overseas most probably, or a cyber 9/11), look for the return of a military draft, supported by both parties, and the devolution to an even worse climate for civil liberties, and the questionings of why these wars are necessary to wage for the protection of American people.

They are not; they are simply wars of aggression against two countries Israel wants the US to beat up militarily, which have absolutely done nothing to us, no have any mind to do so. and I must politely remind you; Tel Aviv wants the costs for these wars to be borne only in American blood and with American money.

Netanyahu's half hour of spewing fakeries on Faux TV, was just that; a fabulous story, well spun, with utterly no hard evidence.

Number one, how would have Israeli intelligence spirited those documents out of the country, which Netanyahu was using to justify his assertions that Iranian leadership has a secret nuclear missile program; and number two, if such a program exists, how could the IAEA, which has been monitoring Iran for compliance on the P5+1 accord, not know that such a facility existed?!?
I can guarantee you; the CVs of the members of the Iranian monitoriing team, would leave you breathless, at their collective levels of technical expertise.

The timing of Netanyahu's heavy-handed insanity, coming right before 12 May, when President Trump is to either recertify Iran as compliant with the accord, of decertify the US's agreement to the accord, is both scarily telling, and troubling; I doubt that the US government is going to recertify Iranian compliance here, which will lead to more US sanctions, which will lead to Iran walking away from the deal entirely.

That is the design intent for such US sanctions, period, end of discussion.
How soon a shooting war breaks out, I cannot tell you; the dangers which will be created by such a war, just feel...imminent, at this moment.

Is This The Collapse You Ordered…?

The Romans had their own version of a financialized economy: they simply devalued their coins by mixing in less and less silver at the mint, so they could pretend to pay for the same luxuries they had grown accustomed to as resources stretched thin. Our financialized economy — like everything else we do — operates at levels of complexity so baffling that even its supposed managers at the central banks are flying blind through fogs of debt, deception, and moral hazard. When that vessel of pretense slams into a mountain top, the effects are likely to be quick and lethal to the economies on the ground below.

But what happens when the economic pie is no longer expanding, yet the keepers of the system seem unable to turn off their own desires to grab more, more and yet more from that same pie? That is where we find ourselves today. The economic oxygen is being sucked from the middle and lower classes and the social and political pressures are building. Meanwhile more and more claims (currency and debts) are being piled on top of this stagnant economic pie thereby increasing the pressure on a creaking system. Someday that all gives way rather spectacularly and ends very badly. History says it ends with a lot of social anarchy and quite possibly another world war.

Are Palestinian Journalists Being Censored by Murder?

On April 25, Ahmad Abu Hussein became the second Palestinian journalist Israeli snipers shot to death while covering the Great March of Return demonstrations, a series of weekly, massive Palestinian demonstrations demanding the right to return to their lands. Abu Hussein was 24 years old. Just days before, Israeli live ammunition killed 30-year-old Yasser Mourtaja. Like Abu Hussein, he was wearing a large, bright “Press” jacket that made clear he was a reporter.

The organization Reporters Sans Frontieres asserts that the Israeli Occupying Forces’ targeting of journalists is deliberate and systemic. This would be in direct violation of United Nations Security Council Resolution 2222 (2015), which states: “impunity for crimes committed against journalists, media professionals and associated personnel in armed conflict remains a significant challenge to their protection and that ensuring accountability for crimes committed against them is a key element in preventing future attacks.”

Israel calls for punishing those who document army violations against Palestinians

Israel’s right-wing Yisrael Beiteinu, led by Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman, is pushing for a new law to punish those who document the Israeli soldiers activities during their army service, Israeli Channel 7 reported.

The draft law calls for anyone who films soldiers during their military service to be handed a -year jail term which would increase to ten years if the content is classified as “detrimental to Israeli security”.

The bill also prohibits the publication of video recordings on social media or disseminating them to the media.

The party’s proposed draft bill comes after video footage circulated showing Israeli occupation forces cheering as their peers shot peaceful Palestinian protesters in the besieged Gaza Strip.

Thomas Jefferson and the Troll Army

Mr. Thomas Jefferson speculated that if we had a well-informed populace, there would be no need for a government ---- and he was right.

The only problem is that first a populace has to be well-educated, which ours is not. Even those we consider to be educated --- doctors, lawyers, and university professors --- are very narrowly trained, and not what would be called "educated" in any former era.

I have asked hundreds of lawyers where law comes from and after four years of Law School --- they don't have a clue. That's tragic --- both from a moral and a practical standpoint. It makes them incompetent lawyers and unfeeling men.

This is not our fault. We have spent trillions of dollars on schools and education and been cheated --- as on so many other occasions --- by those who pretended to be experts. The question remains--- experts in what?

Certainly not education.

This is a government that treats its citizens like faceless statistics and economic units to be bought, sold, bartered, traded, tracked, tortured, and eventually eliminated once they’ve outgrown their usefulness.

This is a government that treats human beings like lab rats to be caged, branded, experimented upon, and then discarded and left to suffer from the after-effects.

This is a government that repeatedly lies, cheats, steals, spies, kills, maims, enslaves, breaks the laws, overreaches its authority, and abuses its power at almost every turn.

This is a government that wages wars for profit, jails its own people for profit, and then turns a blind eye and a deaf ear while its henchmen rape and kill and pillage.

A £111 penalty if you refuse a smart meter: British Gas, EDF and First Utility reserve best deals for customers with the digital gadgets

Suppliers have been told by the Government to try to install smart meters in all the UK’s 50 million homes and businesses by the end of 2020. If they fail to do enough, they face fines of up to £7 billion.

However, customers can refuse to have the new technology, and suppliers are becoming desperate to persuade more people to sign up.

Last week, as part of Money Mail’s Stop The Smart Meter Bullying campaign, we handed the energy watchdog a dossier of damning complaints about the bullying tactics suppliers are using to get homeowners to install smart meters.

We revealed that firms were misleading customers into thinking the new meters are a legal requirement, and bombarding households with calls and texts even after they have said they don’t want one.

Now, it has emerged that providers are locking loyal customers out of their best deals.

Colorado Republican lawmakers want to punish striking teachers with jail time.

Two Republican state lawmakers are trying to shut down a potential teachers strike in Colorado with the threat of jail time.

The bill, introduced in the state Senate Friday, prohibits districts from supporting a teachers strike and requires schools to dock a teacher’s pay for each day they participate in a walkout. The teachers could also face up to six months in jail and a $500 daily fine if they violate a court order to stop striking. Under the new law, sponsored by state Sen. Bob Gardner (R) and state Rep. Paul Lundeen (R), a teacher could be immediately fired without a hearing.

The harsh punishment comes in reaction to the teacher strikes sweeping red and purple states, including Oklahoma, West Virginia, Arizona, and Kentucky. Thousands of teachers in Colorado have joined the grassroots movement, holding rallies at the state capitol in recent weeks to demand a pay raise and more funding.

As UK Govt Kills Alfie Evans, Time To Examine The Catholic Catechism On 'Legitinate Defense' Of Life

It's very clear, Christians are not required to merely sit by and submit as they or their families are murdered at the hand of a corrupt tyrannical state. Matter of fact, preservation of one's life is a "grave duty." The catechism slso covers allowable "armed resistance to oppression by political authority." 2264: "...Someone who defends his life is not guilty of murder even if he is forced to deal his aggressor a lethal blow.. Nor is it necessary for salvation that a man omit the act of moderate self-defense to avoid killing the other man, since one is bound to take more care of one's own life than of another's. 2265 Legitimate defense can be not only a right but a grave duty for one who is responsible for the lives of others..."

Things Work Until They Don’t

One thing is for certain. People today believe anything but reality and that will catch up to them all very soon in a very painful way. Things work until they don’t. Our economy has been rolling along for decades on the stored wealth of previous generations but that is about to run out of steam very soon. When it does it will be a shock to all but a few. You can ignore reality but you cannot ignore the consequences of ignoring reality.

Research Shows Google’s Search Manipulations Tried To Rig Election For Hillary

This is not a coincidence, especially when considering Google was the Clinton campaign’s largest corporate contributor. Google employees, including at least six high-ranking executives, donated more than $1.3 million to Clinton’s 2016 campaign. Call it censorship or manipulation, but the truth is…Google attempted to rig the election for Hillary Clinton by manipulating searches and suggestions, and therefore, voters minds.

U.S. Citizens Fund UN Arms Trade Treaty Which Impacts U.S. Gun Ownership

Recently, I received an email from U.S. Senator Rand Paul regarding an issue which may upset, or be near and dear to, the hearts of many Americans; it stated the USA taxpayer is the second largest DIRECT financial funder of the U.N.’s global gun ban! Did you know that? Of course, most people probably don’t, and such information is one of the reasons I’ve been saying for umpteen years, “Get the USA out of the UN; get the UN out of the USA.”

CDC Buried Data Supporting Defensive Use Of Firearms

It matters because first, it removes one more “talking point” used by anti-gunners to defend their intention to remove firearms from every law-abiding gun owner in the country. Second, it confirms that government agencies cannot be trusted without verification. Third, it is one more argument in the arsenal of those promoting private gun ownership to those who haven’t yet made up their minds.

A Furtive Glance At Washington's Ongoing War Preparations Against Russia

While the world's attention is riveted on Syria, the US is significantly boosting its forces in Europe. And these are not just divisions streaming in to take part in some exercises that will leave once those are over. This is a serious buildup to create a potentially offensive posture. The beefing up of the US forces is taking place amid preparations for a Russia-US summit. That’s a rather peculiar background for the event, to put it mildly!

Armenia Heats Up As The Proxy War Continues

Armenia is an important part Russia’s long-term plans. A member of the Eurasian Economic Union Armenia is key to protecting Russia’s southern flank.

So, I was not shocked back in 2016 when the disputed region of Nagorno-Karabakh was activated by the U.S. after a brief visit by then Secretary of State John Kerry as punishment for Russia’s intervention into Syria.

Nagorno-Karabakh had been peaceful for more than twenty years before Kerry’s visit. And within days, fighting broke out on the Azeri side of the region which lies between the two countries.

So, color me not shocked that as the Neoconservatives take control of the Trump White House that they activate a color revolution in Armenia while simultaneously pushing Russia in Ukraine, Syria, the U.K., the financial markets and seemingly everywhere else at the same time.

Taiwan To Simulate Chinese Invasion In Live-Fire Military Drill Starting Next Week

As concerns about nuclear war with North Korea wane, Taiwan is reminding the world that its own relations with Beijing have been progressively deteriorating; to do that the small island nation will simulate a response to an "invading force", along with using civilian operated drones, in war games next week amid its increasing tensions with China the defense ministry said Tuesday according to Reuters.

While the annual Han Kuang drills, set to begin on April 30 with a computer-aided command post exercise, make no mention of China, only “offensive forces invading Taiwan” and will include a live-fire field training exercise and “enemy elimination on beaches”, it is clear that the "hypothetical" aggressor is China.

UK Sells $445 Million of Arms to Israel, Including Sniper Rifles

Britain has approved the sale of arms to Israel worth $445m since the 2014 Gaza war, including components for drones, combat aircraft and helicopters along with spare parts for sniper rifles, according to figures seen by Middle East Eye.

The government data will raise fresh concerns that British-made weapons are being used by the Israeli military in the Occupied Territories, amid fears that components in sniper rifles used to kill scores of Palestinian civilians in recent weeks could have been made in the UK.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Gee, ya think that was going to happen?!?

Theresa May has the morals of a dead tree-stump; MI5 and MI 6 know precisely that UK's weaponry is being used to assassinate Palestinians; but as long as the money is getting raked in by the UK's military /Industrial Complex, the British government chooses to remain collectively deaf and blind to the carnage these weaons are causing.

Turkey’s Military Offensive in Afrin

In late January, Turkey launched a ground incursion named Operation Olive Branch in the Afrin canton of northern Syria. The offensive is directed against the Kurdish-led Democratic Union Party in Syria (PYD), particularly its armed wing named People’s Protection Units (YPG), which Ankara considers as a terrorist group since 1985 and the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) positions surrounding the city of Afrin. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan stated that the aim of the operation was to give Afrin back to its rightful owners, a statement that has since been used by Kurdish group to claim that he intends to engineer a demographic shift. However, by March, Turkish troops took control of Syria’s Afrin region, deploying “police force” to oversee 115 “strategic forces” and more than 80 villages under its control, the state-run Anadolu news agency reported.

Where Is the Shame? Why is the World Silent? Acceptance of the West’s War Crimes is the “New Normal”

Will the Russian president and foreign minister continue to speak of “our Western partners” and seek common ground with proven lawless war criminals? What would that common ground be?

How can other governments accept the US, UK, and French governments that intentionally lied about a Russian chemical attack on the Skripals and about a Syrian chemical attack on Douma, risking a third world war, and then themselves attacking Syria on the basis of a transparent lie unsupported by any evidence? How exactly do you conduct diplomatic relations with war criminals?

You don’t. You put them on trial. Why aren’t Trump, May, and Macron on trial?

The reason is that the world has been conditioned, like Pavlov’s dogs, to expect and accept the West’s war crimes as ordinary common features of life. The West’s crimes are protected by precedents established by decades of failing to hold the West accountable. The West has squatters rights in committing unaccountable war crimes.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is only a matter of time before the US will find itself in a military confrontation with Russia; that is being engineered by those in the US Deep State as I type this.

In Photos: While the world watches Gaza, Israeli forces invade Nabi Saleh

What’s happening now is what is happening every week, sometimes everyday, since nearly nine years”, explains Belal Tamimi, a resident of the West Bank village of Nabi Saleh. “Every Friday, we have this situation, the soldiers try to surround the village, they don’t want anyone to be near the spring area that the settlers occupied nine years ago. Every Friday, the situation is horrible”, says Belal, who has taken the role of documenting the protests and the constant raids by the Israeli army.

Israelis Continue to Open Fire on Gaza Protestors: An Eyewitness Account

According to the Palestinian Centre for Human Rights (PCHR), the Palestinian death toll since March 30, 2018 “has risen to 33, including 4 children and 1 photojournalist, and the number of those wounded has risen to 2,436, including 410 children, 66 women, 22 journalists and 9 paramedics.”

There have been no Israeli casualties.

According to PCHR, on Friday, April 20th, Israeli snipers “killed 4 Palestinian civilians, including a child, and wounded 274 others, including 41 children, 6 women and 1 journalist, in addition to hundreds suffering tear gas inhalation, including PCHR’s fieldworkers who were documenting the Israeli forces’ suppression of the entirely peaceful demonstrations near the border fence with Israel, east of the Gaza Strip.”

Israeli government justifies killing child protesters in Gaza: They’re not in school

Mohammed Ayoub was the last to be killed: last Friday at 4:30 PM.

Israeli education minister Naftali Bennett was asked on Sunday if Israel had not gone too far when it killed Ayoub, as Orly Noy reports at +972:

Army Radio morning show host Razi Barkai asked Education Minister Naftali Bennett if “we had gone too far” in killing 15-year-old Mohammed Ayoub during the Gaza return march protests last Friday.

“If he had gone to school like every other kid,” Bennett responded, “there wouldn’t have been a problem.” That is what Israel’s education minister had to say about the murder of a child – killed by a sniper’s bullet – during a protest.

This is now a theme of Israeli propaganda surrounding the killings in Gaza: the children are to blame for not being in school, or not reading books.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In Israel, where genocide against Palestinian children is considered business as usual, there appears to be a real disconnect between what the snipers are doing, and their killing of children with bullets, when all the Palestinian kids have are rocks to throw.

But then, what can one reasonably expect from a viciously apartheid, self-proclaimed theocracy with nuclear weapons?!?

Russia said to warn of ‘catastrophic’ result if Israel hits its S-300s in Syria

Russia may hand over its powerful S-300 missile defense system to Syria in the near future, despite opposition from Israel and other Western powers, the Russian daily Kommersant reported Monday, citing anonymous military sources.

The sources told the newspaper that if Israel tried to destroy the anti-aircraft batteries — as analysts have indicated Israel likely would — it would be “catastrophic for all sides.”

But Russian Foreign Minister later said no decision had yet been made on whether to give the S-300s to Syria, and added that it would not keep such a delivery a secret.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

My sense is that Putin will make the decision, and soon, to send the S-300 Defensive Missle System to Syria, and soon; if Israel's government decides to send missiles against it, Russia has told it precisely what will happen.

House Lawmakers Close Pentagon Budget Hearing to the Public

Mattis and Dunford have open hearings at the Armed Services Committees, but will talk over their $686.1 billion request with House appropriators in private.

For the first time in at least eight years, House appropriators will grill the Pentagon’s top civilian and uniformed leader about their budget request behind closed doors, not in an open hearing.

Defense Secretary Jim Mattis and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Joe Dunford will sit before the defense subcommittee on Wednesday to talk over the military’s $686.1 billion request for 2019. It’s not the largest defense budget ever, but the $80 billion bump over legislated spending caps and the bipartisan budget deal that delivered that figure both represent a massive victory for Pentagon leaders and Congressional defense hawks.

Where those dollars will go, however, will be discussed in a session closed to the public.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, We the People, are too stupid to be informed about where these defense dollars are going?!?

Folks, if this intel is true, the Unhinged, Surveilled States of Amerika has bounced out of being a Democratic Republic, and slid right straight down, in the mud, into a Banana Republic!!

Trump’s CIA pick facing brutal confirmation fight

The Senate’s debate over Gina Haspel’s confirmation as CIA director is poised to be a bitter litigation of one of the most controversial episodes in recent U.S. history.

Haspel, the CIA’s deputy director, is indelibly tied to the agency’s use of harsh interrogation techniques after the Sept. 11 attacks. But she is also a 33-year intelligence veteran who is seen even by some critics of President Trump as an experienced and apolitical hand.

Hinting at the challenge ahead, the CIA is engaged in an extraordinarily public campaign to burnish Haspel’s image and correct what it says is a swath of inaccurate reporting about a career intelligence officer who, up until a year ago, was virtually anonymous.

There are few obvious parallels to Haspel’s nomination. Although there have been a handful of CIA nominees with operational experience at the agency before now, many of them had been in the public arena prior to their nomination. Haspel remained undercover until last year.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Haspel is the last person in this country who should have been nominated for this position; this signals to me that the acceptance of torture, courtesy of the CIA, will be back as a brutal element of the Unhinged, Surveilled State of America's further wars without end.
