CIA ran brothels in San Francisco and other cities and dosed the johns with LSD as part of its MKULTRA program

Gottlieb soon hired White, the narcotics agent and former OSS captain, to run two “safe houses” for LSD testing in Greenwich Village. White administered LSD, knockout drops and marijuana to his unwitting “guests” using food, drinks and cigarettes, then tried to get them to talk.

In 1955, White was transferred to San Francisco, where he had worked as a journalist, and rented out the apartment on Telegraph Hill. To give his pad the desired French-whorehouse look, White furnished it with Toulouse-Lautrec posters, a picture of a French can-can dancer and kinky photos of women in bondage and domination poses.

“It was supposed to look rich,” a narcotics agent who regularly visited told Marks, “but it was furnished like crap.”

"Armageddon Risk" Returns: North Korea Predicts "Catastrophe" As Massive U.S. War Games Begin Monday

Traders barely had time to enjoy the lull from the "Armageddon trade" - the rising possibility of a nuclear exchange between the US and North Korea, which peaked over the weekend when various US officials said a nuclear war is not imminent, echoed by a statement by N. Korea's state-run news agency KCNA, before a new set of worries promptly took over, chief among them the ongoing slow motion train wreck in Donald Trump's administration coupled with yesterday's double terrorist attacks in Spain. Alas, "nuclear war" risk is about to come back with a vengeance because on Monday US and South Korea are scheduled to begin joint military exercises, a massive show of force which every time in the past has infuriated North Korea, sometimes triggering a show of force.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The tensions over North Korea may have declined, but they are not over, by a long shot; and this is precisely the kind of orangutanesque, chest-thumping, martial behaviour, on the part of South Korea and the US military, that the North has consistently decried, and asked both countries to stop.

I expect to see something happen militarily from North Korea, before these joint exercises are completed by 31 August.

“White House cabinet and staff must speak out, step down or act decisively or it will be on their hands too. #itistime,” she tweeted on Wednesday. “With his own words TRUMP has created a permissive climate for violence. The blood and carnage will be on his hands. #shame.”

Protests break out on China-North Korea border over new sanctions

Protests have broken out on the Chinese border with North Korea, as China's seafood importers watched frozen product melt in trucks blocked from crossing after China imposed a new round of economic sanctions.

Dozens of trucks have lined up on a bridge, unable to enter China, according to video shot by a local trader who posted it to Chinese social media. It shows a long line of unmoving truck containers stuffed with crabs and shrimp that were melting in the sunshine and risked becoming spoiled product in the latest sign that Beijing is, for now at least, strictly enforcing a new round of sanctions "There is nothing we can do but accept it as our fate," said Cui Yanzhi, a local trader in the Chinese city of Hunchun, where North Korean product has long underpinned a thriving business in the far northeastern corner of the country, not far from Vladivostok.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Good on China for implementing the sanctions.

That being said, I feel a lot of compassion for the North Korean businesses getting hit; the actions of their government are not their fault.

Will it be enough to create an uprising the Kim Jung Un's government and military will not be able to control?!?

I would seriously doubt that would happen.

Ali`i Nui M?`? Edmund K. Silva, Jr., 8-10-17… “King’s Request for Peace throughout the world”

This was posted on the Kingdom of Hawaii blog. This is a beautifully composed letter, and I feel it is significant that he has “tuned in” to the rest of the planet when he requests a daily meditation/prayer for peace at 11 AM each day. He writes:

“Therefore, let us unite in prayer and meditation that our hearts, thoughts and actions are in accord seeking unity and peace throughout these Hawaiian Islands, Guam, Japan, the West Coast of the United States and the world.

“As such, I humbly request that at 11:00 a.m., every morning for just a few minutes until this crisis is over, that everyone throughout Hawai’i and the world stop and pray for peace, calm and unity to Akua the Great Spirit.”

Here is the FDR Quote about Robert E. Lee That Liberals Never Wanted You to See

However, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, author of the New Deal, is a secular Saint for liberals. But he attended the dedication of this same statue in Dallas back in 1936, and he said something extraordinary about Lee. WOW!:

I am very happy to take part in this unveiling of the statue of General Robert E. Lee.
All over the United States we recognize him as a great leader of men, as a great general. But, also, all over the United States I believe that we recognize him as something much more important than that. We recognize Robert E. Lee as one of our greatest American Christians and one of our greatest American gentlemen.

Xi: China welcomes Trump's visit by year end

Chinese President Xi Jinping on Thursday pledged to "properly handle" disagreements with the U.S. and said Beijing welcomes U.S. President Donald Trump to visit China by year end, as he met chairman of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff Joseph Dunford at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing.

"President Trump and I both highly value China-U.S. relations and are willing to push forward the development of bilateral ties. Though difficulties do exist, rainbows come after storms. I hope the two sides can treat each other with honesty and goodwill, maintain close communication and properly handle disagreements," Xi said, according to the Chinese Ministry of Defense.

Xi asked Dunford to convey his greetings to President Trump, and said China is looking forward to Trump visiting China.

The Chinese president stressed that bilateral military relations are an important part of China-U.S. ties and crucial for the stability of broader bilateral relations.

Grand jury expands felony indictment of Wasserman Schultz’s former IT aide

A former House IT aide who had access to emails and files of dozens of Democratic lawmakers has been indicted on four counts, including bank fraud and engaging in unlawful monetary transactions.

Imran Awan, 37, an information technology (IT) aide who worked for Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Florida) and dozens of other lawmakers in the House, was indicted on four felony counts Thursday, according to court documents obtained by the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.

Wasserman Schultz, the former chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) who was forced to step down over Wikileaks revelations that she worked against Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders’ 2016 campaign in favor of Hillary Clinton, only fired Awan on July 25, following his arrest.

NAZI FEARS AND ‘HATE SPEECH’ HYSTERIA ARE BEING AMPLIFIED TO ATTACK CIVIL LIBERTIES

It doesn’t take courage to denounce Nazism. Moreover, it appears many of the people incessantly proclaiming how anti-Nazi they are, happen to be the same folks who have the most to answer for when it comes to all sorts of transgressions against the world over the past couple of decades. That said, I’ll give my my quick two cents on the Nazi, white supremacist hysteria currently being amplified by the corporate media.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Caring about your country, and being a true patriot, means that you have the courage, and logic, to praise what your country's leadership may be doing correctly, but also challenge it on what you believe it is doing that is wrong, and immoral.

President Trump has taken a strong stand against illegal immigration, and I applaud that. Illegal immigration has cost this country intensely, and it has to stop.

The Fiscal Cost of Unlawful Immigrants and Amnesty to the U.S. Taxpayer

Sorry, but illegal aliens cost the US plenty

I am, however, deeply concerned about the Trump Administration's having "gotten into bed" with the Saudi royal family, and colluding with the Saudi military in war crimes in Yemen.

The US military is enabling the Saudis in their slaughter of non-combatants:

images: Yemeni children killed and maimed for life, courtesy of US-enabled Saudi bombing attacks

And today, we have this chilling report from the UN:

Leaked UN Report: Saudi Coalition responsible for Math Child Deaths in Yemen

With US military assistance, Yemeni ports have been shut down, meaning that no food can get into the country; this has translated into the deaths of thousands of Yemeni children from complications of malnutrition:

Images:
Yemeni children suffering from malnutrition

And now, as a result from the dual factors of malnutrition, coupled with the Saudis having bombed all of Yemen's water infrastructure into rubble, we have cholera in Yemen.

Yemeni children suffering from cholera

Cholera hits 500,000 people in Yemen

Oh, and have I mentioned that the Saudis are using white phosphorous weapons in Yemen?!?

Saudi Arabia appears to be using U.S.-supplied white phosphorus in its war in Yemen

And what about the Saudis's use of depleted uranium weapons in Yemen?!?

Video show Saudi troops using depleted uranium weapons in Yemen

Massive uptick in infant Yemeni deformities suggests that the US and/or UK have supplied Saudis with depleted uranium weapons

We no longer have the luxury, as a nation, of being ignorant jingoists, regurgitating whatever propaganda is fed to us by the presstitutes and whorespondents, spewing the official government line on whatever is their "agenda du jour"; we need to become "Seven Day Awareists", intellectually capable of separating the truth of a situation from the fantasy the American Deep State constantly wants to sell us.

I won't kid you; this is hard work, but worth it; this country, and its values, as represented by the Constitution and Bill of Rights, is worth the aggravation of attempting to save by creating a national dialogue about what is done, domestically and internationally, in our names and with our tax dollars.

Finland 'terror attack': Live updates as three knife-wielding attackers 'shouting Allahu Akbar' stab at least nine people leaving 'one dead'

One person has been killed and at least eight others have been hospitalised after 'three knife-wielding attackers' went on the rampage in Finland, it is reported.

Armed police officers are said to have shot one suspect in the leg after the group allegedly started stabbing people in the city of Turku this afternoon.

As they carried out the terrifying attack, cries of "Allahu Akbar" were apparently heard - although the phrase sounds like "watch out" in Finnish.

PARENTS CATCH FBI IN PLOT TO FORCE MENTALLY ILL SON TO BE A RIGHT WING TERRORIST

It’s become a near-weekly occurrence. Somewhere in some state, the FBI will announce that they’ve foiled yet another terrorist plot and saved lives. However, as the data shows, the majority of these cases involve psychologically diminished patsies who’ve been entirely groomed, armed, and entrapped by FBI agents. Simply put, the FBI manufactures terror threats and then takes credit for stopping them.

While many of these cases have garnered attention and been exposed in the alternative media, a recent case out of Oklahoma sets a new low for FBI and exposes how insidious these plots can be.

Through the hundreds of ‘foiled terror plots’ the FBI has ‘busted’ over the years, many of them have been focused on people of Middle Eastern descent or people associated with ISIS or Al Qaeda. This time, in the case of Jerry Drake Varnell, the 23-year-old diagnosed schizophrenic, accused of attempting to bomb a bank, the FBI fomented terror from a right wing dialogue.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Such actions are vile, and should be criminally prosecuted; but such behaviour, attempting to turn, then arrest, a diagnosed paranoid schizophrenic, is perfectly acceptable, to the Fomenting Bowels of Insanity.

WELLS FARGO RESHUFFLES BOARD WITH SCANDAL-RIDDEN INSIDERS

WELLS FARGO, THE CURRENT poster child for corporate crime recidivism, announced that three of its board members would step down at the end of the year, in a nod to the company’s many incidents of customer abuse. But, in an example of what passes for accountability in the modern age, they did not claw back any compensation from those board members. Instead, the departing board members were allowed to take an early retirement. And the replacements are either already on Wells Fargo’s payroll, or come from close corporate partners.

TEACHER ARRESTED FOR ASSAULTING WHITE NATIONALIST: VIOLENCE AGAINST FAR-RIGHT ‘NOT A CRIME’

The Berkeley area teacher who pummeled a white nationalist last year, and just recently was arrested on assault charges for that attack, is claiming that “standing up to fascism is not a crime.”

By Any Means Necessary’s Yvette Felarca, who teaches in the Berkeley Unified School District, said at her arraignment that “Standing up against the rise of Nazism […] in this country is not a crime,” and added “We have the right to defend ourselves.”

As reported by The College Fix, Felarca was caught on video in June of last year “punch[ing] the man in the stomach repeatedly, before throwing him to the ground.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

My dear Ms. Falarca, a word please: it appears that your alleged "standing up to fascism" always translates into the person whose ideology you cannot stand, getting physically beaten.

I would like to invoke the memory of the late Dr. Martin Luther King, one of my greatest heroes of the 20th century, who created massive positive change without every hitting anyone or without firing a single shot.

Had this man not been a Christian, a pacifist, and a great admirer of Gandhi, God only knows in what direction the civil rights movement in this country could have gone.

What you have done, Ms. Falarca, is to encourage mob violence, which may ultimately result in the suspension of the Constitution, and the imposition of martial law; is that your design intent, when you physically beat up people with whom you do not agree?!?

Or did you not realise that your actions may well have these consequences?!?

Are you not constantly advocating against bullying in your classroom?!? Bullying outside the classroom also has no moral justification either; and you are deluding yourself, if you think that there is a difference in your actions, when you punched a man in the stomach, then threw him to the ground.

Cloudflare CEO admits that removing neo-Nazi site because he's in a 'bad mood' is a slippery slope

Cloudflare CEO Matthew Prince's decision to terminate protection of neo-Nazi website the Daily Stormer because he "woke up in a bad mood" could be dangerous to the future of free speech on the internet, he admitted.

"Literally, I woke up in a bad mood and decided someone shouldn't be allowed on the Internet," Prince wrote in an internal memo to employees obtained by Gizmodo and published on Wednesday. "No one should have that power."

Prince further explained his decision to remove the Daily Stormer in an official blog post after the site claimed that Cloudflare held "secret support" for its beliefs. But he reiterated his view that policing content online is a slippery slope.

Here are the Confederate memorials that will be removed after Charlottesville

More than 150 years after the Civil War ended, the Confederacy is memorialized with statues, monuments and historical markers across the United States.

Some say they mark history and honor heritage. Others argue they are racist symbols of America's dark legacy of slavery.

A nationwide debate surrounding this issue has been underway since Dylann Roof killed nine African-Americans in a Charleston, South Carolina, church in 2015 in an effort to "start a race war." And it flared up again after white nationalists marched last weekend to protest the removal of a Robert E. Lee statue in Charlottesville, Virginia, where a counterprotester was killed amid violent clashes between demonstrators.

Don't panic, Chicago, but an AWS S3 config blunder exposed 1.8 million voter records

A voting machine supplier for dozens of US states left records on 1.8 million Americans in public view for anyone to download – after misconfiguring its AWS-hosted storage.

ES&S says it was notified by UpGuard researcher Chris Vickery of the vulnerable database that contained personal information it collected from recent elections in Chicago, Illinois. The records included voters' names, addresses, dates of birth, and partial social security numbers. Some of the records also included drivers' licenses and state ID numbers.

"The backup files on the AWS server did not include any ballot information or vote totals and were not in any way connected to Chicago's voting or tabulation systems," ES&S said in a statement on Thursday.

SURVIVORS WIN CONFIDENTIAL SETTLEMENT IN LAWSUIT AGAINST CIA TORTURE PSYCHOLOGISTS

Two psychologists, James Mitchell and Bruce Jessen, who were contracted by the CIA to develop torture techniques, agreed to a confidential settlement with torture survivors.

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) sued Mitchell and Jessen on behalf of Suleiman Abdullah Salim, Mohamed Ahmed Ben Soud, and the family of Gul Rahman. The lawsuit alleged the CIA contractors committed crimes that included water torture, forcing prisoners into boxes, and chaining prisoners in painful stress positions to walls.

“We brought this case seeking accountability and to help ensure that no one else has to endure torture and abuse, and we feel that we have achieved our goals,” the plaintiffs said in a joint statement posted by the ACLU.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In a just world, these two pieces of work should be cooling their heels in a jail cell, and not in a Club Fed, for the rest of their miserable lives.

But this is not a just world, and those who purvey torture techniques are honored, and protected, by the governments who put their practices in place with impunity.

The only penalties imposed were financial, and most probably, easily paid off.

Mitchell and Jessen should be shunned, henceforward and forever, by the profession of psychology: they are among the true monsters among us, and the fact that the Bush administration embraced what they offered, makes them monsters as well.

I would like to politely point out the following; when a country signs off on torture, or outsources it, that telegraphs to the world that for all the codswallop about valuing human rights, human dignity, and the protection of prisoners of war, that country observes those values in the breach, and not in the observation, of those values.

It also gives countries which do not like the United States carte blanche to torture US civilians and military personnel.

So please, all of those with family and friends in the military, please chew on that last one for a little while, OK?!?

Android Trojan Now Targets Non-Banking Apps that Require Card Payments

Dubbed Faketoken.q, the new variant of mobile banking trojan is being distributed using bulk SMS messages as their attack vector, prompting users to download an image file that actually downloads the malware.

Once downloaded, the malware installs the necessary modules and the main payload, which hides its shortcut icon and begins monitoring everything—from every calls to launched apps—that happens on the infected Android device.

When calls are made to or received from certain phone numbers on the victim's device, the malware begins to record those conversations and sends the recordings to the attacker's server.

Moreover, Faketoken.q also checks which apps the smartphone owner is using and when detects the launch of an app whose interface it can simulate, the Trojan immediately overlays the app with a fake user interface.

Unpatchable Flaw in Modern Cars Allows Hackers to Disable Safety Features

Initially developed in 1983 and put into production in 1989, the CAN standard manages the majority of the electrical subsystems and control units found in a significant number of modern smart cars.

If exploited, the vulnerability could eventually allow attackers to turn off crucial safety functions of a vehicle, such as airbags, power-steering, parking sensors, and the anti-lock brakes—or almost any computerised component that's connected to the car's CAN bus.

Since the CAN standard is being used in "practically every light-duty vehicle currently in circulation today," the fundamental security flaw affects all modern, internet-connected vehicles, rather than just a particular vendor.

A manhunt is under way for the driver of a van that crashed into a crowd in Barcelona killing 13 people.

Five suspected terrorists were then killed in a shoot-out with Spanish police in Cambrils as they carried out a similar vehicle attack, killing one person
The Catalan government says the two attacks, which happened hours apart, are linked.

Authorities investigating both attacks believe a cell of at least eight people may have been involved.

WASSERMAN SCHULTZ'S EX-IT AIDE INDICTED ON 4 COUNTS

The federal case against Imran Awan, a former IT aide for Democratic Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, expanded Thursday with an indictment on four counts including conspiracy and making false statements.
He originally was charged with a single bank fraud count; his wife Hina Alvi also was indicted Thursday.

The grand jury decision in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia comes roughly a month after Awan was arrested at Dulles airport in Virginia trying to board a plane to Pakistan, where his family is from.

Awan and other IT aides for House Democrats have been on investigators’ radar for months over concerns of possible double-billing, alleged equipment theft, and access to sensitive computer systems. Most lawmakers fired Awan in February, but Schultz had kept him on until his arrest in July.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Wasserman Shultz and Clinton will walk away, with no criminal indictments against them; Awan and his family will be the "sacrificial lambs" to be slaughtered here (hopefully, only metaphorically), to insure that happens.

Working for the Clintonistas, although lucrative, always has a price attached.

URBAN WARFARE: NATO ISSUES RFP FOR TRAINING TO FIGHT IN BIG CITIES WITH "DENSE, INTERCONNECTED POPULATIONS"

Throughout the 2016 campaigning cycle, then candidate Trump frequently criticized NATO as “obsolete” and repeatedly knocked allies for not paying their “fair share.”

Then, in a shocking reversal, Trump hosted a joint press conference with NATO Secretary General Stoltenberg, just a few months after moving into the White House, in which he declared: "I said it was obsolete. It's no longer obsolete."

"The Secretary General and I had a productive discussion about what more NATO could do in the fight against terrorism. I complained about that a long time ago and they made a change. And now they do fight terrorism. I said it was obsolete. It's no longer obsolete."

All TV shows mentioning America must go. All currency mentioning America must go. All corporations containing the word America must be renamed, e.g. Bank of America & American Airlines. Continents containing the word America must be renamed.

Man arrested because he had $324K that smelled like cocaine, prosecutor says

When police pulled over a nervous Gerald Flores last June, they found seven bundles of cash wrapped tightly in plastic, tucked away in a hidden compartment in his SUV, authorities said.
When they counted the money, it totaled $324,000, authorities said. What's more, the money smelled like cocaine, the prosecutor said.

Oliver Stone: "1984 Is Here"

"Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book has been rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered...History has stopped. Nothing exists except the endless present in which the party is always right" — George Orwell. We've been keeping an eye on the insanity oozing out of the States over the last week. Not surprisingly, Oliver Stone has produced one of the most succinct, on-point commentaries about Charlottesville and the resulting madness. Sorry, but we just don't buy this idea that fighting (apparently to the death) over Confederate statues is a top priority for most Americans right now. No doubt it serves as a convenient and extremely lame ideological battle for weirdos on the far, far right and far, far left to salivate over.

Russia’s relief efforts abroad reach unprecedented levels: "We even delivered aid to the US twice, in 2005 and 2012"

The Russian Emergencies Ministry has recently sent one of its aircraft to extinguish wildfires in Armenia. This humanitarian operation was just a small drop in a series of Russian humanitarian operations around the world. Due to a significant increase in the number and scale of emergencies in the world Russia’s relief operations abroad have reached an unprecedented level, Yuri Brazhnikov, Director of the EMERCOM agency told Rossiyskaya Gazeta. "More than 430 large-scale emergency operations have been conducted since 1993, including 278 operations to deliver humanitarian cargo. We even delivered aid to the US twice, in 2005 and 2012," he said. Humanitarian operations are really expensive, Brazhnikov noted, and only a powerful and great country recognized by the UN and other influential international organizations can afford them.

Media: Islamic State Barcelona attack sends ripples

When asked about the consequences of this terrorist attack, Spanish political expert and Director of the El Semanal Digital publication Antoni Naranjo answered briefly, "unity", in an interview with the paper. He noted that, in the wake of the attack, employees of El Prat Airport decided to end the large-scale indefinite strike, which had significantly hampered the work of Barcelona’s major air hub. Meanwhile, member of the Spanish Socialist Workers’ Party Juan Moscoso del Prado informed Izvestia that the fact that Barcelona had been chosen by terrorists as a target is no coincidence. The politician recalled that the city is very popular with tourists, and it is very easy for terrorists to find a place for a potential attack. Apparently, jihadists are behind the attack, since the greatest number of extremist groups is in the region, he noted. Every successful terrorist attack is replicated, retired FSB Colonel Vladimir Lutsenko explained to Kommersant.

‘They have caused this’ Nigel Farage blasts European leaders after fatal Barcelona attack

Farage said: “What happens is they all stand up and they say ‘We stand in solidarity with Barcelona, or Brussels, or Stockholm, or Paris, or London or wherever it may be, and this is really truly awful’.

“There is no understanding of why this is going on and not once, not once, do we ever hear a single leader in Europe offer any policy solution whatsoever.

“They are still in denial, and my only guess is that they are so embarrassed by the fact that they have caused this.”

Study finds that “teen depression” increases risk of violence … so they should all be treated with more drugs that cause violence instead?

The Times also noted that since the early 2000s, antidepressant drugs have had to carry strong warnings about increased risk of suicide for children, teens and young adults. They are only considered “safe” (by the FDA, at least) in those over the age of 25.

Experts have also been warning the public for years that thousands of people on SSRIs, or weaning off them, have committed suicide and other violent acts, including mass shootings.

Furthermore, a 2016 study published in the journal The Lancet, which compared the 14 most commonly prescribed antidepressants, including Prozac (fluoxetine), Effexor (venlafaxine) and Lexapro (escitalopram), found that only fluoxetine worked better than placebo.

In other words, these drugs, which alter the chemistry of the brain and carry serious side effects, are totally useless, anyway!

Turkey wants to use national currencies in trade with Russia — economy minister

Turkey’s Minister of Economy Nihat Zeybekci said on Friday he thinks his country and Russia should use national currencies in their trade. "We are looking at setting a task of using Turkish liras and Russian roubles in bilateral trade. If we don’t do it, our trade will be strongly influenced by exchange rate fluctuations," he said at a plenary session on the margins of the 86th international exhibition in Izmir. "We hope that before October 20, when the Russian-Turkish intergovernmental commission is to meet in Kazan, these issues will be settled and we will be able to set further tasks"...

Mainstream media finally starting to ask why TURMERIC isn’t being promoted as a safe, affordable treatment for CANCER

“Curcumin is a strong anti-inflammatory agent and chronic inflammation is the precursor of 99 per cent of all cancers,” explained Angus Dalgleish, a professor of cancer at St George’s Hospital in South London

Before it can be widely prescribed by doctors, it must be tested in large-scale trials. Sadly, nobody is willing to take up the challenge since these trials cost millions of dollars. An investment that could never be repaid as there is no big money to be made from sales of a natural compound that cannot be patented, the Daily Mail Online reported.

Julie Ryan, a cancer specialist at the University of Rochester Medical Center in New York, told the journal Nature that the biological activity of curcumin is real. She believes that chemically modified forms may be even more effective at reaching certain tissues.

USA, hands off Venezuela! - Russia

The United States has renewed its threats to Venezuela to impose new sanctions in the nearby future. “Venezuela is sliding into dictatorship”, the US Vice President Mike Pence wrote on his Twitter account. “The United States will not accept the rise of a dictator and there may be new sanctions against Venezuela soon,” Pence told the crowd at a press conference during his visit to Colombia. “We have many options for Venezuela, including a military intervention if necessary”, he told reporters in New Jersey. While legitimate opposition does exist in Venezuela, the Maduro government is obviously not willing to bend over backwards far enough to whatever demands of the US energy interests in Venezuela, which is one of few reasons the US ever considers military intervention...

SBU to assess propriety of Ukrainian children's vacations in Russia

The Security Service of Ukraine will give a legal assessment of the vacation trips of Ukrainian schoolchildren in Russia. SBU will conduct a test at the request of the Ministry of Education of the country. This is owing to the fact Khobzei, deputy head of the Ministry of Education, considers it "incorrect" that Ukrainian children vacation in Russia. He acknowledged that the Russian-Ukrainian border was not officially closed, and officials had no right to tell parents where their children should vacation. At the same time, the department is concerned about such facts and they ask the SBU to pay attention to them and give them a legal assessment, writes Tsargrad. We recall that, earlier in the occupied Slavyansk three teenagers were featured in the center of ascandal - inflated by mass media of Ukraine - because of refusing to rise under sounds of the anthem.

Seattle Mayor calls Lenin monuments symbols of hate and racism

Seattle Mayor Ed Murray believes that the two monuments to Vladimir Lenin should be demolished. According to Murray, the monument to Lenin in Fremont and the monument to Confederate soldiers at Capitol Hill glorify "historic injustices" and are symbols of hate, racism and violence. "Not only do these kinds of symbols represent historic injustices, their existence causes pain among those who themselves or whose family members have been impacted by these atrocities," Murray said in the statement. "We should remove all these symbols, no matter what political affiliation may have been assigned to them in the decades since they were erected. This includes both Confederate memorials and statues idolizing the founder of the authoritarian Soviet regime," he added. Noteworthy, both monuments are installed in private areas. Meanwhile, Ukraine has liquidated all monuments to Vladimir Lenin.

Up to 3,000 jihadists expected to come to Europe in near future

Up to 3,000 jihadists are expected to come to Europe in the coming years, experts from RAN analytical center said. In their opinion, the militants, who had left European countries to fight on the side of terrorists, are coming back to their homes now. The number of terrorists coming to Europe may increase dramatically should the Islamic State terrorist group declare its defeat. The experts also said that a third of Europeans, who had left for the war, have already returned home. Most of them remain under police surveillance, but others managed to escape from the sight of the authorities. Most of those terrorists have suffered psychic traumas as they have either taken part in brutal hostilities or eyewitnessed violence, RAN researchers say. More than 42,000 foreign soldiers from more than 120 countries joined the ranks of jihadists from 2011 to 2016. About 5,000 people left European countries to struggle "in the name of Islam."

In relevant remarks in June, Alavi announced that the security forces disbanded a terrorist team in the Western province of Kordestan the same day, blaming Saudi Arabia for recent insecurities in Iran. "Today, a terrorist team was attacked by the security forces and disbanded," he said. Alavi added that the team consisted of 7 terrorists, including 5 Iranian and 2 foreign nationals from the neighboring countries.

Turkish security forces detained five suspected members of the ISIL terrorist group in the country's Northern Samsun province, who were planning to carry out attacks in Istanbul, local media said. The statement said that Turkish security forces received information that seven ISIL suspects had been planning to travel to Istanbul to carry out attacks there, Yenisafak reported.

"Four people were killed in Cambrils, another is arrested, wounded," the police said. The fifth person has since died. According to media reports, the suspects tried to commit a terrorist act in Cambrils, similar to what happened in Barcelona earlier. At least seven people, including a policeman, were wounded in the attack, according to Twitter account of emergency services in Catalonia. The Catalan police believe that the terrorist attack in Cambrils might be related to the previous attack on pedestrians in Barcelona and an explosion in an apartment building in Alcanar, where one person was killed and at least one other wounded in an explosion that destroyed a house.

Government and Military’s Faithfulness to Constitutional Oaths

By Scott Lazarowitz

Should those working in government and military be expected to obey the U.S. Constitution they have sworn to support and defend?

For instance, in domestic policy Attorney General Jeff Sessions wants to enforce federal drug laws even in states whose voters approved of some drug legalization, a violation of the Constitution’s Tenth Amendment regarding policing authority. The Constitution doesn’t even authorize the federal government to get involved in drugs, period. The AG is also violating the due process clause when he directs law enforcement to steal cash from citizens regardless of whether they are charged with any crimes.

And when it comes to foreign policy, even the military and its Uniform Code are clear on the ideas of swearing or affirming to support the U.S. Constitution and following lawful orders...

Concerns have grown over the potential for severe malicious or natural “Black Sky” hazards associated with subcontinent scale, long duration power outages, with cascading failure of all our other increasingly interdependent infrastructures. This creates a grim and difficult dilemma: Restoration of any sector will only be possible with at least minimal operation of all the others.

“Start Throwing Rocks”: Washington Post Op-Ed Calls For More Violence In The Streets

So how did we get to this place? How did we reach a point where America resembles Wiemar Germany, with white nationalists and socialist thugs battling it out on the streets and killing people?

If I were to pick one culprit for this mess, it would be the mainstream media. They’re the ones who have, for the most part, stood behind leftist ideologues for decades, and allowed them to bury public discourse under a wave of identity politics. They are at the very least, partly to blame. They’ve helped stoke divisions in this country that were once faint, or in the process of healing.

And if you don’t think the mainstream media is responsible for nudging our country towards war in the streets, then you should read this op-ed that was recently published by the Washington Post. It was written by N.D.B. Collins, an associate professor at Johns Hopkins University. In it, he appears to shamelessly call for the left to spawn more riots and violence in this country.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This definitely smacks of Deep State manipulation, in order to see more unrest, which ultimately will result in President Trump being pressured to suspend the Constitution and Bill of Rights, and establish martial law, nationally.

More violence will only beget more violence; I cannot believe, for one moment, that Dr. N.D.B. Collins really believes this is the right path to follow.

But agents of the Deep State can come from surprising backgrounds, and have some interesting agendas.

It appears that whoever is sponsoring this article at the Washington Compost, is hoping such violence will have President Trump invoke martial law, so that
the warmongers in President Trump's cabinet, can get their wars on, with even peaceful protest forbidden.

Socrates discusses death of democracy, hubris of empire, devolution to civil war. ‘We the People’ of the US’ choice: follow that path OR demand .01% arrests for OBVIOUS crimes of war, looting, lying

“The strong do what power allows. The weak accept what they must.” – Athenian 415 BC envoy to the small government of Melos, with the offer to either join Athens’ empire with paying them tribute, or have all men executed, and everyone else sold into slavery. Melos politely declined Athens’ offer. Athens attacked, did exactly what they threatened, and resettled the emptied island with 500 Athenian colonists. – Melian Dialogue of Socrates’ contemporary historian, Thucydides.

language warning: Socrates and I speak in the same direct language that caused his execution for “corrupting the young.”

NDP moves to end secret Klein-era scheme to offload corporate losses on the public

No one should be surprised that as its final decade approached, Alberta's Progressive Conservative government cut a secret and illegal deal with a small group of electricity marketing companies to let them leave the province's consumers holding the bag for billions of dollars in the event the dice ever failed to roll their way.

Indeed, no one is very surprised, as you can tell from reading between the lines of the oh-so-cautious mainstream media coverage of the NDP Government's lawsuit, launched in the Alberta Court of Queen's Bench yesterday, to invalidate a secretly negotiated clause in Tory-passed legislation that allowed corporations to offload business losses in the electricity market onto the public.

Marxists, nihilists, Zionists/Communist, deconstructionists, envious haters and the programmed response of egalitarianism as a new age religion, are eviscerating the Euro-American cultural/historical heritage of America.

British singer Robbie Williams puzzles Lithuanians by saying 'spasibo'

British singer Robbie Williams performed in Vilnius, Lithuania, with this "The Heavy Entertainment Show." Local media drew attention to the fact that during the performance of the song "Party Like a Russian" Robbie Williams said the Russian word "spasibo" ("thank you") several times to everyone's surprise in the audience. According to Lithuanian website lrytas.lt, Williams did not think to express his gratitude to his audience by saying "thank you" in Russia. The Russian word is part of the lyrics of the song. Delfi website suggested that the Russian word from the mouth of the British singer could embarrass the audience during the concert.

Like the fairy-tale character, Buratino, (the Russian version of Pinocchio), this system can push its “nose” into any hole. The vehicle is based on the T-72 tank. Instead of a gun mount, however, it features 30 tubes (220-mm caliber) capable of unleasing a hurricane of fire in just a few seconds; the missiles contain a thermobaric mixture that literally smash shelters and troops into smithereens with shock, fire and shrapnel. The real hell begins afterwards, however. The thermobaric charge in each projectile creates an “air-mixture cloud” that explodes, creating pressure at a temperature of around 3,000 degrees Celsius, consuming all the surrounding oxygen and collapsing the pressure. It does not take a vivid imagination to guess what happens to anyone inside this cloud.
