LAST DESPERATE GASP OF THE NEW YORK SLIMES - Intercepted Russian Communications Part of Inquiry Into Trump Associates

American law enforcement and intelligence agencies are examining intercepted communications and financial transactions as part of a broad investigation into possible links between Russian officials and associates of President-elect Donald J. Trump, including his former campaign chairman Paul Manafort, current and former senior American officials said.

"HE WANTS TO BE EMPEROR" – HOW MARK ZUCKERBERG IS SCHEMING TO BECOME PRESIDENT

If he does want the job, Zuckerberg definitely has the personality for it. When Facebook went public in 2012, I co-authored a profile of the young C.E.O. During the reporting, I heard from several friends about his penchant for playing world-conquering board and video games. Early childhood pals told me that one of Zuckerberg’s favorite video games as a boy was Civilization, the game in which you have to “build an empire to stand the test of time.” Others have told me that, to this day, Zuckerberg loves to play Risk, a strategy board game where you have to essentially take over the world. Believe it or not, he ended up applying some of these theories while forging and managing the extraordinary growth of Facebook, organizing his product teams in similar ways to his battalions in the board games. (According to someone close to him, these days Zuckerberg loves Game of Thrones and enjoys cooking a meat-laden “Dothraki Feast” while watching Westeros fall in and out of anarchy.)

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Zuckerberg may well have the personality, and a lot of technical savvy; but does he truly have the temperament for leading this country as its President for all of its people?!?!

I sense a petulance in the man's make-up that augurs ill for world peace, and major, significant negotiations desperately needed to ratchet down tensions internationally. Look what he did just yesterday to rt.com, and for no apparent reason:RT gets banned from Facebook until after the inauguration

And does he understand that board games and television shows are just that, and not real predictors of the course of human events on this planet?!? Can he really tell the difference between reality and fantasy?!?

These are critically important questions the DNC has to answer before even considering vetting him to run, whenever that does happen, particularly when it has become so damaged and destroyed by its own "magical thinking" in running the horrifically flawed candidate, Hillary Clinton, last year.

Right A Terrible Wrong: Why Obama Should Reverse Himself And Pardon Leonard Peltier

“DEPLORABALL” PROTESTS TURN BLOODY AS TRUMP SUPPORTER ASSAULTED WITH FLAGPOLE

Reports have been rolling in all evening of vicious mobs of violent protesters around Washington DC attacking Donald Trump supporters in town for the inauguration, including people on their way to and from tonight's pre-Inauguration "Deploraball" celebration, held at the National Press Club building. Over 1000 guests were invited to the event organized by Mike @Cernovich and the pro-Trump MAGA3X organization.

As Fox News reports:

Some of the hundreds of protesters sprayed Mace, while others were peaceful as law enforcement officers lined the streets to monitor the chaotic scene. At least one passer-by reported bottles were being thrown as he showed off a gash in his head.

One of the victims was 21 year old Trump supporter and Youtube Journalist James Allsup of Seattle, who was harassed and then punched on camera by members of the "Antifa" protest organization featured in the recent Project Veritas undercover sting.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Perfectly predictable from the Clintonista Brownshirts; they have shown themselves to be people of severely limited intelligence, who can only think in small sound bytes, and demonstrate a thirst for blood and violence, only to be satiated when they can beat up someone who had a difference of opinion as to who they supported to become President in last November's election.

FARMERS in the US are secretly feeding their cows defective Skittles as they are cheaper than corn.

According to experts, the practice has been going on for years but it only came to light recently after a truck spilled hundreds of thousands of Skittles onto a rural road.

SNOW in the SAHARA: World's hottest desert covered in metre thick BLANKET of white

THE red sand of the Sahara has turned white after snow fell on the desert for the second time in a matter of weeks.

The cold snap gripping most of Europe has spread south to the 9.4million square kilometre African desert.

A blanket of freezing snow has settled on the dunes up to a metre thick in some places.

Astonishing photos that emerged today from the town of Ain Safra, known as the ‘gateway to the desert’, show scenes reminiscent of a mountain range.

It comes just weeks after snow hit the Sahara for the first time in 37 years.

People Are Planning To Boycott Spencer's For This Offensive Trump Shirt

Weather Channel Founder: Gore’s ‘Inconvenient Sequel’ Another ‘Scientific Monstrosity’

The founder of the Weather Channel has predicted that Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Sequel will be another ‘scientific monstrosity’ on a par with his first global warming docu-drama An Inconvenient Truth.

“Thousands of scientists have debunked the horrid science fiction in his first film, An Inconvenient Truth. Gore keeps making billions and mis-educating millions and the media keeps spreading wild science-fiction claims on a daily basis,” said John Coleman, who founded the Weather Channel in 1980.

The film premiered Thursday at the Sundance Film Festival in Utah, but is not scheduled for public release until next summer, when the weather is warmer and global warming will seem more plausible.

JFK’s Revenge

I’ve enjoyed watching Bernie Sanders grill Trump’s cabinet nominees, quoting the President-Elect’s campaign promises verbatim and demanding to know if those promises will be fulfilled. The man’s a pit bull. He’s there in the ring, slugging it out for truth, justice, and the American Way, just as he has all his life. The empty pantsuit has vanished. I’d like to think that she’s on a terminal vodka bender up there in Chappaqua, cursing the walls as they close in on her. I’d say she has a much better chance of becoming the New York State Vegetable than Mayor of New York City.

As a student of history with a particular interest in the machinations of the Deep State, I’m thrilled at the prospect of a president taking office under direct and open threat from the CIA, especially one as bold and cunning as Donald Trump.

Here’s who’s performing at Trump’s inauguration — and who said no

You don't have to be political to be enamored by President-elect Trump's inauguration.

It's already been quite the spectacle watching performers accept and reject Trump's offer — and those who agreed have been flooded with backlash.

So who exactly will be — and won't be — taking the stage in Washington, D.C., ahead of Trump's swearing-in?

Here's everything you need to know.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What is amazing is that the has-beens who refused based it on the Hillary propaganda about Trump, none of which was true. Trump doesn't hate women, there are no plans to burn LGBT people at the stake, and "illegal" isn't a race!

By the end of the next four years, the snowflakes will hopefully understand the degree to which they were lied to and used by Hillary!

Here are the federal agencies Trump plans to cut as President

Even before officially taking up residence at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., the President-elect has begun cleaning house in various government agencies, according to a report Thursday.

Trump transition staffers say they’ve earmarked ways to reduce federal spending by $10.5 trillion over 10 years — and cutting jobs is a big part of the plan, The Hill reported.

Under the Trump plan, the Corporation for Public Broadcasting would be privatized.

The National Endowment for the Humanities will be cut entirely, The Hill said.

Funding to the Departments of Commerce and Energy would be drastically reduced and many of the programs under their jurisdiction eliminated or moved to another agency, the website reported.

U.N. Ambassador Samantha Power "Sounds The Alarm About The Surge In Antisemitism" In Final 'Exit Memo'

All of these exit memos, along with Obama's alleged accolades, is a great deal to wade through, and while we are all certainly looking forward to better things starting today, I encourage writers, researchers and bloggers to search through all this stuff for items of interest. If for no other reason, than to mock and thoroughly discredit the state. Here are all of Samantha Power's excerpts about Israel and anti-Semitism.

Russian expert calls Trump’s statement on nuclear disarmament impromptu

According to Arbatov, Trump’s statement on disarmament "was an impromptu" one. "By the way, the new US administration does not know much about disarmament. The same goes for Trump’s statements on sanctions. This was a flight of fantasy that has no boundaries," the expert added. "The future of the disarmament actually depends on Russia because no one in the incoming US administration is an expert in this sphere, moreover, they have never dealt with it. Russia can seize the initiative in the disarmament issues. This is one of the most important fields as far as our security is concerned. If Russia wishes, it can have a chance to put forward a package of realistic proposals on all issues which have remained ‘a bone of contention’ in Russian-US relations.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am sure we all agree the world would be safer without these city-destroying weapons hanging over all of us like the sword of Damocles. However, after years of Russia bashing by US warhawks and the NATO buildup on the borders, tensions with Russia will not be switched off overnight.

While Russia understands that Trump is pro-peace-through-commerce, the President is still surrounded by a government full of "old guard" cold-war fossils who still dream of a global American empire, and Russia is probably looking at a phased stand down of the current tensions before talk of strategic weapons reductions can begin.

Load of bollocks: 2016 allegedly ‘hottest year’ by immeasurable 1/100 of a degree – While satellites show ‘pause’ continues

Two satellite datasets agree: The Temperature Pause lives on: ‘No warming for the last 18 years’

MIT climate scientist Dr. Richard Lindzen on 2016 being called the ‘hottest year’: ‘The hysteria over this issue is truly bizarre’ – Warns of return ‘back to the dark ages’

Dr. David Whitehouse noted the 'temperature pause never went away': 'According to NOAA 2016 was 0.07°F warmer than 2015, which is 0.04°C. Considering the error in the annual temperature is +/- 0.1°C this makes 2016 statistically indistinguishable from 2015, making any claim of a record using NOAA data specious.'

Dr. Lindzen also ridiculed previous ‘hottest year’ claims. “The uncertainty here is tenths of a degree. When someone points to this and says this is the warmest temperature on record, what are they talking about? It’s just nonsense. This is a very tiny change period,” Lindzen said. “If you can adjust temperatures to 2/10ths of a degree, it means it wasn’t certain to 2/10ths of a degree.”

Trump's Son-In-Law Jared Kushner Invites Bush-Cheney Insider To Serve As Key Advisor In Trump White House

Neil Patel served as Dick Cheney's right hand man and even represented Cheney at meetings during Bush's reign. Patel is set to help Kushner, who has become a key Trump advisor, on the Middle east conflict. Here is a photo of Patel with Cheney from The U.S. National Archives, and also a photo of Patel with Karl Rove going way back to 2003. Trump often describes Kushner as 'very smart,' but the director of Harvard's college preparatory program at the time described Kushner's admission as "an unusual choice for Harvard to make" given that he was "not anywhere near the top of his class." Kushner's felon daddy donated $2.5 million dollars to Harvard prior to Kushner's admission. Last summer at a Town Hall Q&A, a very polite elderly gentleman told Donald trump that "I'm opposed to wasting our military in the Middle East on behalf of Zionist Israel.

Secret 1983 CIA intelligence report suggested America should encourage Saddam Hussein to attack Syria to secure oil pipeline to Med and Gulf 

America urged Saddam Hussein to attack Hafez al-Assad's Syria because of the closure of Iraq's oil pipeline, a secret 1983 intelligence report has revealed.

A report, by former senior CIA official Graham Fuller, said the US should consider 'urging Iraq to take the war to Syria', noting that Saddam was 'fighting for his life' in the Iran-Iraq campaign.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Probably Saddam didn't go along with attacking Syria because the war with Iran had also been "encouraged" by the US Government!

Gary Sick wrote that in October 1980 officials in Ronald Reagan's presidential campaign made a secret deal with Iran to delay the release of the American hostages until after the election and in return for this, the United States purportedly arranged for Israel to ship weapons to Iran. Sick had interviewed a witness who saw members of the Reagan election team in Paris in negotiations with the Iranian government. According to Sick, Oliver North was the administration's scapegoat, taking responsibility to conceal the "treason" of Reagan and Bush.

Former USSR leader receives Lithuanian court’s summons as witness in case over 1991 events

The criminal case, which the court began to hear at the beginning of 2016, concerns the events in and around the TV broadcasting center in Vilnius in January 1991. It is unprecedented for the Lithuanian judiciary system in terms of the scope of materials under consideration and the number of people involved. A total of fourteen people died in Vilnius in armed clashes then while the country was trapped in the duality of state power. On January 9, 2017, the circuit court got down to questioning the complainants. The case materials list about 500 people in this category. The summons was handed on December 28 after delivery at the address of the Gorbachev Fund in Moscow. Gorbachev Fund press service refrained from any comments on the issue. "We don’t comment on the situation," a spokesman told TASS.

The activity dubbed "Farewell, Obama" took place in front of the US embassy near the Brandenburg Gate, a famous Berlin landmark. "It was an information picket dedicated to the end of Obama administration’s term and the coming of the Trump administration," said Oleg Muzyka, member of the Kulikovo Pole movement uniting people opposing the course of the current Ukrainian authorities.

On January 19, Facebook blocked an opportunity for RT to publish reports containing references, live broadcasts, videos, and pictures... Russia's Federal Service for Supervision in the Sphere of Telecom, Information Technologies, and Mass Communications (Roskomnadzor) promises to find instruments for wielding impact on U.S. media and social networks if a buildup of pressure on RT channel continues, Roskomnadzor's Director Alexander Zharov told TASS on Thursday. He declined to specify any concrete steps. "We'll find an instrument to wield impact. It's only too obvious for us RT is subjected to unprecedented pressure, most importantly, unjustified pressure." Zharov recalled more than 40 U.S. channels, one news agency and two radio stations were accredited in Russia. "There's quite a big number of U.S. media here and their activities here are totally unrestricted and that's the actions against RT look particularly astonishing for us.

Some of them are coming from the territory of the United States. Dozens are coming from the territory of Germany, dozens coming from the Great Britain. "Do you think that it means with a high state of certainty that those attacks against our digital systems are being promoted by the governments in Washington, in London or in Berlin? You will probably say no. It’s out of the question," the Kremlin spokesman noted. "We think it has nothing to do with the governments, although we also have some evidence that some foreign special services might stand behind some very tense attacks against our banks and against our official websites."

Yes, it's snowing in the middle of summer (NZ)

It's summer but that hasn't stopped snow from falling across North Island mountain ranges.

Whakapapa ski field was this morning blanketed in a fresh coating of snow and even the Tararua Ranges behind Levin were white after an overnight dusting.

Much of the lower North Island was covered by cloud this morning, but forecasters say the temperatures dived low enough for snow flurries on the tops of the inland mountain range.

Does Michael Moore Matter Anymore? An Open Letter From One Filmmaker To Another

Mike: I’m a fellow Michigander, a fellow filmmaker like yourself, raised with small town Midwestern values like the ones you claim to have. I’ve mostly applauded and admired your efforts in the past. Indeed, long before I became a filmmaker, I championed your documentary film, Fahrenheit 9/11. While working as an Alaska commercial fisherman, I lobbied the local theater owner, Rusty, to show the film there in Kodiak, Alaska in 2004. He said he despised you but I told him the Orpheum would be packed for several showings and he’d make a nice fat profit. And he did.

Speaking of nice fat profits, how’s your weight, buddy? You really should contact my friend Gillian Michael and get on a weight loss program. Maybe you could make a documentary while you do it. Call it High Fructose Snowflakes or Fast Food Fat Folks or something really fun and creative. Like that guy who made Supersize Me.

Britain’s ‘Failure To Tackle Tax Havens’ Draws Ire Of Anti-Corruption Campaigners

Anti-corruption campaigners have accused the British government of falling short on its longstanding commitment to fight corruption, voicing concerns over the government’s “rejection of the need to stop the UK tax havens selling secrecy.”

Responding to recommendations by the International Development Committee (IDC) in its October 2016 report ‘Tackling corruption overseas’, officials once again asserted on Monday the UK is a “leader in the fight against corruption and promoting transparency.”

Cardinal Timothy Dolan, Participating In Trump's Inauguration, Called Catholic Victims Of Clergy Sexual Abuse "Fake Victims"

This is probably the most vile story I've ever had to write, but this Cardinal Timothy Dolan deserves to be exposed in a big way. I sent him a letter privately about this in 2015, which his representative at the diocese acknowledged in writing that he received. But since he doesn't find it worthy of a response, the public realm is the next best venue. Don't think for a minute that this is an anti-Catholic screed. Not at all. In fact it's just the opposite. Clergymen must be held accountable to the moral law by the laity if they fail in their sacred duty; Saints and Popes throughout history have taught us this and stated such in countless official documents. Cardinal Dolans has failed his flock in multiple ways.

Moldova Switches Sides, President Proclaims New Alliance with Moscow

Let's call this Vicky Nuland's slap in the face on her way out the door.

Washington's trans-atlantic empire suffered a blow this week when Moldova's newly elected president, Igor Dodon, announced his country's re-alignment toward Russia in a joint press conference held with Vladimir Putin in Moscow.

What a sad day this must be for the neocons, the transatlanticists, the globalists, the Victoria Nulands and George Soroses of the world. While they can't have spent nearly as much money in Moldova as they did brainwashing and overthrowing Ukraine ($5 billion according to Vicky), they have surely invested a lot in attempting to pull Moldova into Washington's Euro-Atlantic sphere.

Noam Chomsky on the Long History of US Meddling in Foreign Elections

A wide range of politicians and media outlets have described the alleged Russian interference in the last US presidential election (by way of hacking) as representing a direct threat to American democracy and even to national security itself. Of course, the irony behind these concerns about the interference of foreign nations in the domestic political affairs of the United States is that the US has blatantly interfered in the elections of many other nations, with methods that include not only financial support to preferred parties and the circulation of propaganda but also assassinations and overthrows of even democratically elected regimes. Indeed, the US has a long criminal history of meddling into the political affairs of other nations -- a history that spans at least a century and, since the end of World War II, extends into all regions of the globe, including western parliamentary polities.

SCOOP: Canada's New Foreign Minister Lying About Family's Ukrainian Nazi Past

Chrystia Freeland, appointed last week to be the new Canadian Foreign Minister, claims that her maternal family were the Ukrainian victims of Russian persecution, who fled their home in 1939, after Adolf Hitler and Josef Stalin agreed on a non-aggression pact and the division of Poland between Germany and the Soviet Union. She claims her mother was born in a camp for refugees before finding safe haven in Alberta, Canada. Freeland is lying.

The records now being opened by the Polish government in Warsaw reveal that Freeland’s maternal grandfather Michael (Mikhailo) Chomiak was a Nazi collaborator from the beginning to the end of the war. He was given a powerful post, money, home and car by the German Army in Crakow, then the capital of the German administration of the Galician region. His principal job was editor in chief and publisher of a newspaper the Nazis created.

Broken promises: A history of UN resolutions and West Bank Settlements

At the end of last year, the United Nations Security Council passed a resolution condemning Israel's settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem. The resolution was particularly noteworthy due to the United States taking the unusual decision to abstain on the resolution, allowing it to pass rather than vetoing. But will the new resolution make a difference to the peace process and Israel’s policy of settlement expansion?

Since Israel’s occupation of the West Bank, Gaza, East Jerusalem and the Golan Heights, the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) has remained clear that settlements are illegal and an obstruction to a peaceful resolution. Here, we take a look back at the history of UNSC resolutions regarding Israeli settlement activity and expansion onto Palestinian land, and see how this has shaped the conflict between Israel-Palestine and plans for peace.

Julian Assange will stand by offer to go the US after Barack Obama releases Chelsea Manning

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange stands by his offer to go to the USA now that Chelsea Manning is being released, he told a press conference.

Mr Assange had previously committed to hand himself in and face any possible extradition to the US, should Barack Obama offer clemency to Ms Manning. But when that happened, his lawyers suggested that he wouldn't actually fulfil that commitment – arguing that Ms Manning wasn't being released quickly enough.

Now Mr Assange has said that he will stand by the offer. He said that there will be "many discussions" on his future before Ms Manning leaves prison in May.
