Israeli jeep runs over Palestinian protester near Ramallah: Video

An Israeli military jeep runs over a Palestinian protester north of the city of al-Bireh, near Ramallah, in the central occupied West Bank, as Palestinians step up their protests against Tel Aviv's violence and provocations.

The Palestinian news agency Ma’an said on Friday that a Palestinian youth was run over by an Israeli military jeep before the injured young man was nabbed by the Israeli forces.

Footage of the incident aired by the al-Aqsa TV showed the military vehicle speeding up at a group of youths who were protesting weeks of Israeli aggression against Palestinians in the occupied West Bank.

Israeli forces apparently blocked and assaulted medics who were attempting to reach the hit person, the video showed.

Russian Tu-142 bombers cause trouble for USS Ronald Reagan

According to Stars and Stripes, in the morning of October 27, Russian long-ranger bomber planes flew at the height of only 150 meters and at a distance of 1.8 kilometers from the US aircraft carrier. The US ship was conducting maneuvers with South Korean navy. US military men tried to contact the pilots of the Tu-142, before four F/A-18 Super Hornet took off after the radio contact was not established. "It's standard operating procedure for U.S. planes to escort aircraft flying if they are in the vicinity of a U.S. ship -- then that's standard procedure," said Navy commander William Marks. He said Russia's flyover was "safe" -- "a range of about a mile away," he said. "We do the same, it's not uncommon," he added.

California Police Department Is Letting Their Officers Carry Nunchuks

Nestled near mountains of Northern California, lies the small town of Anderson with a population of 10,000. Their small police department has decided to give their policemen the option to carry a rather unconventional weapon. Provided they attend a 16 hour course, the officers will soon be allowed to carry nunchakus.

As strange as it may sound, the Anderson Police Department thinks this move could change the public’s perception that police are overly aggressive. They argue that the nunchakus will give their officers more options to restrain a suspect, whereas a traditional baton is mostly limited to being used as an impact weapon. According to Police Chief Michael Johnson “In an era where the general public is extremely sensitive to police techniques and use of force issues, nunchakus offer another force option that may offset some of the more aggressive perceptions the public has about police intervention.”

London’s ping pong diplomacy: red carpet for China, red card for Russia

The red carpet rolled out by the British government for Chinese President Xi Jinping, whose three-day visit this week was marked by a lavish state banquet in his honor hosted by the Queen and a two-night stay at Buckingham Palace, contrasted with the almost complete estrangement between London and Moscow. Trade talks between the Chinese and the British culminated in several landmark deals, in particular, the agreement with the China General Nuclear Power Corporation for a nuclear plant at Hinkley Point, Somerset, worth some 6 billion pounds ($9.2 billion). The City of London, the world’s leading financial hub with the biggest foreign exchange market, was especially keen in engaging with the Chinese because it has emerged as the largest renminbi trading center outside of Asia. With around a third of British GDP generated in the finance sector, China has the status of a super VIP-client.

“Governments must meet their legal obligation not to provide aid or assistance and, on the contrary, to act to put an end to Israel’s violations of international law by implementing a military embargo on Israel as was done against apartheid South Africa.”

“Israel is currently operating a shoot to kill policy and brutally repressing Palestinian protests against its regime of occupation and apartheid.”

China Sea Blues: A Thing Not to Do

Fred on War with China.

It appears that Washington, ever a seething cauldron of bright ideas, is looking for a shooting war with China, or perhaps trying to make the Chinese kowtow and back down, the pretext being some rocks in the Pacific in which the United States cannot possibly have a vital national interest.

Years back I went aboard the USS Vincennes, CG-49, a Tico class Aegis boat, then the leading edge of naval technology.

The Navy has not been in a war for seventy years. It has sat off various shores and launched aircraft, but the fleet has not been engaged. Over decades of inaction, complacency sets in. Unfortunately, wars regularly turn out to be otherwise than expected. Further, the American military’s standard approach to a war is to underestimate the enemy (there is probably a manual on this).

How Microsoft will cram Windows 10 even harder down your PC's throat early next year

Windows 10 already appears as a free "optional" update for some Windows 7 and 8.1 systems, and soon this will be widened to all machines running a genuine copy of Win 7 and 8.1.

Then early next year, Windows 10 will become a free "recommended" update – meaning it will be immediately downloaded by any PC or device that automatically installs "important" and "recommended" updates.

Windows 10 will therefore find its way onto potentially millions more machines because Microsoft recommends that people always install "important" and "recommended" updates automatically.

US refuses to recognize South China Sea islets as Chinese territory

China has warned against any violation of its territorial waters by American warships.

A Chinese Defense Ministry spokesman said the country’s military will take all necessary measures in response to any future incursions by US vessels into its territorial waters around islands in the South China Sea. The warning followed the sailing of a US guided missile destroyer within the 22-kilometer territorial limit of one of the islands newly created by China. The US refuses to recognize the man-made islets in the strategically vital region as deserving of sovereign territory status. The Chinese side took no forceful action during a US warship’s sail-by on Tuesday, but strongly protested the move. The spokesman offered no details on how Beijing might respond differently in the future.

“The Gun Is Civilization” By Maj. L. Caudill, USMC

Human beings only have two ways to deal with one another: reason and force. If you want me to do something for you, you have a choice of either convincing me via argument, or force me to do your bidding under threat of force. Every human interaction falls into one of those two categories, without exception. Reason or force, that’s it.

In a truly moral and civilized society, people exclusively interact through persuasion. Force has no place as a valid method of social interaction, and the only thing that removes force from the menu is the personal firearm, as paradoxical as it may sound to some.

When I carry a gun, you cannot deal with me by force. You have to use reason and try to persuade me, because I have a way to negate your threat or employment of force.

The fix is in for the pantsuit queen. A Democratic National Committeewoman says her party is ‘clearing a path’ for Hillary because ‘the women in charge’ want it that way.

Following in Obama’s footsteps of hiding behind his race to shut down any opposition, Hillary will be able to use her gender to cry foul.

And she may even be able to use her sexual preference to scream hate speech at anyone who disagrees with her. “Hillary Clinton ‘could be our first Lesbian president,’ says Bryan Fischer.

US, allies gearing up for war with Russia: Analyst

The decision by the United States and its allies to deploy more troops and heavy weaponry onto Russia’s borders indicates that Washington is gearing up for a fight with Russia, an American journalist and political activist says.

“They are clearly preparing to fight a war with Russia, and they are not only preparing to fight it at the old battle lines, but at Russia’s door, while they talk about Russia provoking,” Don DeBar said during an interview with Press TV on Thursday.

He made the remarks when asked for his views on Washington’s plans to deploy up to 4,000 more forces in countries bordering with Russia.

The Wall Street Journal reported on Wednesday that under one plan, roughly 800 to 1,000 soldiers will be stationed in each of the four battalions to be deployed to Poland, Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania.

Senate “Sentencing Reform” Bill Could Crack Down on Gun Owners

Gun owners should be very concerned about the “Sentencing Reform” bill (S. 2123) that passed out of the Senate Judiciary Committee.

While many non-violent offenders are being let off the hook -- and even some violent offenders who plea bargained down to “non-violent” offenses -- the bill actually increases penalties for many law-abiding (non-violent) gun owners.

For example, the bill would increase penalties for “prohibited persons,” such as the more than 175,000 veterans who have lost their gun rights if there is still a gun anywhere in the house ... or the 4.2 million seniors who are now in Obama’s crosshairs.

S. 2123 also increases penalties regarding the possession of a machine gun from 10 to 15 years. That spells trouble for people like David Olofson. While he never owned an automatic weapon, he was framed by the ATF when it took a malfunctioning semi-automatic AR-15 and tested it several times with different ammunition -- until it finally burst fired and jammed.

From Brussels they say that if Belgrade does not impose sanctions on Moscow, halt accession negotiations and eliminate any financial assistance to our country.

As he so informed sources say, European officials have sent a message to Serbia that this time he will not turn a blind eye when it comes to relations with Russia.

- Attitude Brussels that Serbia must harmonize foreign policy with the EU. This means that if you do not bring a blockade of Putin's regime, Europe block the opening chapter, and further negotiations. Belgrade has made clear that in that case there will be no pre-accession funds - sources say.

The Midwife to Chaos and Her Perjury

The New York Times’ Maureen Dowd captured the moment last weekend when she referred to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as “the midwife to chaos” in Libya. Dowd apparently came to that conclusion after watching Clinton bobbing and weaving and admitting and denying as she was confronted with the partial record of her failures and obfuscations as secretary of state, particularly with respect to Libya.

The public record is fairly well-known. In March 2011, President Barack Obama declared war on Libya. He did this at the urging of Clinton, who wanted to overthrow Libyan strongman Col. Moammar Gadhafi so she could boast of having brought “democracy” to the region.

She and Obama conspired to do this even though former President George W. Bush and former British Prime Minister Tony Blair had publicly praised Gadhafi as an ally in the war against terrorist groups and even though the U.S. was giving the Gadhafi government more than $100 million a year in foreign aid.

US school cancels Halloween for students - citing diversity

Officials at the school wrote to parents to say that the school’s diversity was the reason behind the decision.

One fifth of parents whose children attend Seth Boyden Elementary School in Maplewood, New Jersey were keeping them out of school or opting not to participate in Halloween activities, CBS reported.

“To have it interfere with the learning of a significant number of families in a way that made them feel uncomfortable just didn’t make sense anymore,” Suzanne Turner, director of strategic communications for the South Orange-Maplewood School District, said.

Past Halloween celebrations had many students feeling left out, the school said.

US has turned into warfare, prison state: Ex-US Senate candidate

The United States has developed into a “warfare” and “prison state” that has led to a country with the highest incarceration rate in the world, a former US Senate candidate says.

“The United States is a welfare, warfare, prison state,” said Mark Dankof, who is also a broadcaster and pastor in San Antonio, Texas.

“The prison system is being overloaded with people who really don’t belong there and this is creating a crisis in families, a crisis in individual lives,” Dankof told Press TV on Thursday.

“It’s also creating a crisis for a society that continues to spend more money on all of these things with less good results,” he added.

USAF officer defied order to launch nuclear missiles at height of Cuban Missile Crisis. Turned out orders were a mistake and WWIII and a nuclear hell on earth were averted.

The Okinawa missiles of October

When the missiles' readiness was raised to DEFCON 2, the crews had been informed that there would be no further such tests. So this time, when the first portion of the code matched, Bordne’s crew was instantly alarmed and, indeed, the second part, for the first time ever, also matched.

At this point, the launch officer of Bordne's crew, Capt. William Bassett, had clearance, to open his pouch. If the code in the pouch matched the third part of the code that had been radioed, the captain was instructed to open an envelope in the pouch that contained targeting information and launch keys. Bordne says all the codes matched, authenticating the instruction to launch all the crew’s missiles. Since the mid-shift broadcast was transmitted by radio to all eight crews, Capt. Bassett, as the senior field officer on that shift, began exercising leadership, on the presumption that the other seven crews on Okinawa had received the order as well, Bordne proudly told me during a three-hour interview conducted in May 2015. He also allowed me to read the chapter on this incident in his unpublished memoir, and I have exchanged more than 50 emails with him to make sure I understood his account of the incident.

It is a shame that the average American remains completely in the dark about what it means to live under military occupation. The Israeli “occupation” that Palestinians have been living under for 48 years is a brutal military rule that reaches into every corner of every Palestinian’s life. It controls where we can go and when, where we can live, how we practice our religion, and so many other vital matters, including whether we live or die.

Pentagon personnel on site to investigate loose blimp

Some 40 personnel from the home base of the military blimp that broke loose Wednesday are now at the site where it landed, a U.S. military official told CNN.

There is an on-scene commander and also an investigating officer for the Pentagon, and they hope to remove the wreckage by the end of the day.

Protest War Criminal Netanyahu at the White House

Assemble at 9:00 a.m.

Wanted for Torture, Murder, Ethnic Cleansing, Racist Apartheid

The infamous war criminal Binyamin Netanyahu has been once again invited to Washington to meet with President Obama and Congressional leaders. Netanyahu is responsible, among other crimes against humanity, for the murderous 2014 assault on Gaza, that took the lives of 2,100 people including 500 children, wounded more than 10,000 and left hundreds of thousands homeless. Netanyahu presides over a racist apartheid system that has jailed, tortured and killed thousands of Palestinians, as Israel confiscates more and more and more Palestinian land every day. All of these crimes are funded by U.S. tax dollars, amounting to more than $3 billion per year!

Join us to say:
- Stop All U.S. Aid to Israel
- Send Netanyahu to the International Criminal Court for War Crimes
- Self-determination and liberation for the Palestinian people!

Florida woman served with papers for child she 'fathered' when she was eight

A nineteen year-old woman in Florida claims to have been served papers claiming child support for an eleven-year old child she is accused of 'fathering'.

The desperate student took to Reddit to seek advice on how best to deal with the papers.

"I am a woman who is being accused of not paying child support for the child I fathered. The child is 11, I am 19".

She wrote that this was "not a typo", adding that the courthouse actually has a file for the case so she knows it is not a scam or a joke.

She said she tried to explain that she could not have fathered the child, being a woman.

"I told them it was a mistake but no one there would listen".

Ukrainian opposition accuses authorities of trying to falsify election results

The Ukrainian political opposition has said on Thursday the pro-government forces were trying to falsify the results of the local elections that took place on October 25. According to head of the Kiev branch of the Opposition Bloc party Alexander Puzanov, irregularities "were registered at many polling stations" and "vote count was not conducted in a proper way." "I have documentary evidence proving that the number of ballot papers taken out of the ballot boxes proved far bigger than the number actually handed out," Puzanov said, referring specifically to the results of voting in Kiev. "In all districts there were people who wanted to score more votes in a fraudulent way. If the overall number of votes scored by a party is no more than 6 or 7% and exceeds 20 and even 50% at one polling station, that is strange, to say the least." "The authorities believe that there should be no Opposition Bloc in Kiev.

Life in Damascus amid Syria's civil war

The armed conflict in Syria, which started in March 2011, has reportedly claimed more than 220,000 lives up until now. More than 11 million others have been forced from their homes as forces loyal to President Bashar Assad and those opposed to his rule battle each other — as well as jihadist militants from Islamic State...

Let's start with some basic concepts. You live in an age of lies. Every day of your life you are literally being drowned in lies. Lies by government. Lies by advertisers. Lies by the corporate media.

Truth has become such a valuable commodity that the government is economizing it!

Liars, meaning good convincing liars (i.e. sociopaths, who evince no guilt when they lie) , lie because they are able to get what they want from people, especially if those people are conditioned from childhood to tell and to believe that others will tell the truth.

It may seem that I am stating the obvious, but the point I want to make is that all ruling power is, is the willingness and ability to do things the ruled may not, or have been conditioned to believe they cannot do.

You are taught not to steal, yet government reserves to itself the right to steal, obfuscating the theft with words like excise, confiscation, pillage, taxation, and in the extreme, conquest.

Bring Back Jimmy Carter!

The truth of the matter-which will never emerge from Fox "News"- is that Washington is using ISIL in an illegal attempt to overthrow an elected government that will not submit to being a Washington puppet.
In clear words, Washington in total violation of law is behaving as a war criminal and is attempting to overthrow an elected government in order to replace it with a vassal answering to Washington.

President Putin has said that Russia will not stand for any more war crimes from Washington in areas of the world that affect Russian national interests. Russia has been asked for assistance by the legitimate government of Syria against ISIL, and the Russian air strikes are exterminating ISIL. This has the Washington war criminals upset. The senior US defense official told Fox "News" that the only role for Russia in Syria is to assist the US in overthrowing Assad. I guess the dumbshit Washington official didn't hear what Putin had to say.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The words "war criminals", have, unfortunately become a reasonable, and accurate, description of the members of the past, and current, administrations.

Any reasonable person can no longer believe ANYTHING coming out of Washington, because it is all lies to groom belief into accepting an agenda, no matter how insane that government agenda might be.

Lindsey Graham: “I’m not a scientist, and I’ve got the grades to prove it. But I’ve talked to the climatologists of the world, and 90 percent of them are telling me that the greenhouse gas effect is real. That we’re heating up the planet.”

Members of the GOP are notorious for their stance against the idea that humans are causing global warming, or that global warming is real – nevermind that it’s caused by humans or not. Needless to say, climate change can be linked to human activities with a close to certain probability: 99.999%. But while the consensus on global warming among scientists has become even more entrenched, the subject has been polarized in the media to great lengths. As if it’s a matter for debate. It’s not really – it’s just the details that are worth debating. The fact that global warming is happening now and is accelerated by human activities is undeniable, yet many Republican Presidential candidates seem to refuse to acknowledge this out of ignorance or some other interest. Sen. Marco Rubio says “there’s no consensus”, Sen. Ted Cruz likens climate change proponents with “flat-Earthers” and Donald Trump… well.

Has He Become “Mentally Unstable”? Obama Now Provoking China With Warships

The Global Times is a Chinese state-run newspaper that has very close ties to the Communist party. After Obama’s provocation in the South China Sea, it published an editorial entitled “After the show, it’s time for US destroyer to leave“. The following is the most alarming portion of that editorial…

"In face of the US harassment, Beijing should deal with Washington tactfully and prepare for the worst. This can convince the White House that China, despite its unwillingness, is not frightened to fight a war with the US in the region, and is determined to safeguard its national interests and dignity.

Beijing ought to carry out anti-harassment operations. We should first track the US warships. If they, instead of passing by, stop for further actions, it is necessary for us to launch electronic interventions, and even send out warships, lock them by fire-control radar and fly over the US vessels."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is really looking like NOW would be a very appropriate time to invoke the 25th Amendment.

The apparent madness of this President's decisions regarding Syria, Russia, Iraq, and China, is truly terrifying, but of course, not if you are money junkies who profit from war, and all the ancillary businesses of war; for such people, these decisions make absolute financial sense.

After all, it won't be their kids getting blown to bits of maimed for life, ultimately for corporate financial gain.

Dumbing Down of America? California School District’s New Grading Scale Gives out Cs for “Doing Absolutely Nothing at All”

A school district north of San Francisco has decided to implement a new “grading system” that almost entirely negates the point of, well, grading systems.

Along with the new scale, teachers are now required, by district-wide rule, to always give students at least a 50%, even if they never complete any work at all.

In other words, no child really ever will be left behind.

Thousands Of Soldiers With Mental Health Disorders Kicked Out For 'Misconduct'

The U.S. Army has kicked out more than 22,000 soldiers since 2009 for "misconduct," after they returned from Iraq and Afghanistan and were diagnosed with mental health disorders and traumatic brain injuries. That means many of those soldiers are not receiving the crucial treatment or retirement and health care benefits they would have received with an honorable discharge.

The Army has taken these actions despite a 2009 federal law designed to ensure that troops whose mental illness might be linked to the wars aren't cast aside.

That's the finding of a joint investigation by NPR and Colorado Public Radio that listened to hours of secret recordings, looked at hundreds of pages of confidential military documents and interviewed dozens of sources both inside and outside the base.

One of the Army's top officials who oversee mental health, Lt. Col. Chris Ivany, told NPR and CPR that the Army is not violating the spirit of the 2009 law by dismissing those soldiers for misconduct.

Oz: Israel's prison for Palestinian children

Zamzam S, an 11-year-old from the neighbourhood of al-Thori, says he was arrested along with his brother, Khalil, and two of his friends last week while they were playing football in the street; they were all subsequently taken to Oz.

"This unit opened a month ago, specifically for children and young people throwing stones," Amjad Abu Asab, head of the East Jerusalem committee of prisoners' families, told Al Jazeera. According to accounts from parents and human rights groups, detainees typically spend one night here for interrogation. Longer interrogations take place at the al-Mascobiya interrogation centre in West Jerusalem.

The current state of Israel can best be described as a viciously apartheid, self-declared theocracy, with nuclear weapons, which may, unfortunately, sow the seeds of its own disaster.

Russia Opposes UN Resolution on Barrel Bombs

Russia said Wednesday it opposes a draft United Nations resolution on Syria's use of barrel bombs which is being promoted by France, Britain and Spain because it could jeopardize upcoming international talks on how to restore peace to the conflict-wracked country.

Britain's UN Ambassador Matthew Rycroft said the draft has been circulated to some members of the Security Council and will be circulated to all members "in the coming days."

"I think it's important to ensure that indiscriminate bombing is stopped because it kills so many people, it terrorizes so many people and it's one of the causes of the flood of refugees and migrants out of Syria," he said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The resolution is an attempt to blame solely the Assad's government of killings of Syrians and to blame his government as being the main reason behind Syrians refugees problem, and by that they absolve the real terrorists from any blame of daily killings in Syria.

A barrel bomb is nothing but another bomb...But the sell by the West of this bomb meant to scare people of this so called unique 'barrel' bomb, as if it's somehow a nuclear, or neutron bomb that demands a UNSC resolution.

Because many of the refugees hadn’t been registered yet, Germany’s The Local reports, nothing is known about who they are or where they might have gone; this has left the local authorities in the uncomfortable position of being completely clueless about who and where they can currently be found.

Panic As Muslim Migrants March Through Hannover and Claim Germany For Allah

Last week in the town of Hannover in Germany, Muslim migrants, no longer pretending to be “refugees”, marched through the city streets waving the black flag of ISIS and claiming the land for Allah. I don’t know how many times we have to say it – but – they are not refugees and they are not migrants. They are Islamic jihadis who are acting en masse to claim Europe for Allah and Islam. They are not assimilating and they will not assimilate into the culture of their host nations. They will demand that you submit to the Sharia, and guess what? That’s exactly what’s happening. In England, it has already happened. If you ever wanted to know what it was like to watch the downfall of a major nation, you’re looking at it.
