China, Russia see US 'bullying' as IAEA adopts anti-Iran resolution

China and Russia have rebuked the International Atomic Energy Agency for giving in to US "bullying" as the IAEA's board of governor on Friday passed a resolution critical of Iran for the first time since 2012.

The resolution, submitted by France, Britain and Germany, comes at a time when the United States is working to extend an arms embargo against Iran.

Diplomats attending the Friday meeting in Vienna were cited as saying that the resolution called on Iran to allow access to two former sites mentioned in two IAEA reports.

Iranian officials have said Tehran has responded to all outstanding questions about its nuclear activities and the IAEA has repeatedly confirmed it. The new questions, they say, have been raised based on information fabricated by Israel.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Folks, this is a demonstration by the IAEA as to just how intensely the US and Israel have grabbed it by a very sensitive portion of the human anatomy, and is forcing it to go along with their agenda, which is a pretext for a war against Iran.

I cannot tell you who I think will win the Presidential elections here in the US in November, but I am almost prepared to bet real money on the following; no matter who gets elected, we will most likely see this country go back to a draft as a preparation for this, and other, endless wars of conquest and occupation.

And this time, the Federal Government will be coming after both our young men and our young women.

DOJ Lawsuit Over Bolton’s Book is 'Regrettable Pretext to Cover Up Effort to Suppress His Speech'

In his book due to be released on 23 June, John Bolton, in particular, accuses US President Donald Trump of misusing his powers and claims that POTUS was manipulated and easily influenced by the foreign leaders of China, Russia, Turkey, and North Korea.

John Bolton’s lawyers have filed a motion in court to dismiss a Department of Justice (DOJ) lawsuit against the former US national security adviser aimed at blocking the publication of his upcoming book for reportedly containing highly classified information.

According to the motion, "[…] Defendant John R. Bolton moves to dismiss the [DOJ’s] complaint for failure to state a claim".

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The 23rd of this month, the date Bolton's book is supposed to be released, is next Tuesday; it looks like things are about to get....interesting here, and very quickly.

Global War, Nuclear Accidents, Volcanic Eruptions: Deutsche Bank's Apocalyptic Take On What May Come Next

In many ways, 2020 has already been a year that has had virtually every worst-case outcome take place: a global pandemic the likes of which have not been seen since the Spanish Flu of 1918, a market crash and economic recession that were as sharp as the Great Depression of 1929, a Fed intervention that puts the 2008 bailout to shame, and topping it all off, a new cold war. But according to Deutsche Bank the "fat tail" outcomes are only getting started.

As the bank's strategists Henry Allen and Jim Reid "cheerfully" write, tail risks such as Covid-19 are thankfully rare compared with other market shocks. However, they note, such events "are a more regular occurrence than most people think, with pandemics being just one example. In this piece we consider various tail risks that could cause another global crisis, and assess the probability that they will occur."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The reasons Deutsche Bank is making these predictions... is to understand how to position itself to make the most possible money, no matter what comes down the pike, in terms of future shocks to the system by the above-reference catastrophes, either naturally occurring, or human-caused.

But for the rest of us.... we simply have to prep for any eventuality which may befall us, particularly if governments come crashing down around our heads, and we are uniquely on our own, in terms of taking care of ourselves and the people about whom we care.

So here comes my mantra yet again; storeable food; potable water; extra meds for yourself, family, and pets, and a bug-out kit, with certain very specific guidelines about how and when you will use it.

Epstein Case: Documentaries Won't Touch Tales Of Intel Ties

Authored by Elizabeth Vos via ConsortiumNews.com,

Investigation Discovery premiered a three-hour special, “Who Killed Jeffrey Epstein?” on May 31, the first segment in a three-part series, that focused on Epstein’s August 2019 death in federal custody. The series addresses Epstein’s alleged co-conspirator Ghislaine Maxwell, his links with billionaire Leslie Wexner, founder of the Victoria Secrets clothing line, and others, as well as the non-prosecution deal he was given.

The special followed on the heels of Netflix’s release of “Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich,” a mini-series that draws on a book of the same name by James Patterson.

Neither documentary however deals at all with Epstein’s suspected ties to the world of intelligence.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When specials like this are churned out, very rarely do they look at the in-depth questions which need to be asked, and answered, but misdirect the viewing public by focusing on the cheesy/sleazy side of the subject's character.

China Conducts Military 'Show Of Force' Drills With Tanks Near Indian Border

Both China and India have signaled they are seeking to deescalate soaring tensions along the disputed and loosely demarcated Line of Actual Control (LAC) which separates Indian-controlled territory from Chinese-controlled territory along Ladakh and the Chinese Tibet Autonomous Region.

This after on Monday night the deadliest border clash in a half-century erupted, after which the Indian Army confirmed 20 of its troops killed after being critically wounded followed by being “exposed to sub-zero temperatures in the high altitude terrain.” Though the Chinese side has yet to give details of PLA casualties, Indian media has widely reported that over 40 "enemy" soldiers were killed.

Though political leaders on both sides have said they don't want to stoke tensions possibly leading to outbreak of war, Chinese state media CCTV announced military drills designed as a 'show of force'. RT Arabic subsequently republished video of the undated exercises near the Line of Actual Control.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is absolutely a very clear demonstrations of actions being louder than words; I would like to continue to hope that SOMEONE, one of the "adults in the room" in world geopolitics, with some real credibility in morally tough conflict resolution, is going to step up to the plate, and will work the phones between Beijing and New Dehli, and convince leadership to start a meaningful show of de-escalation here.

Unfortunately, that definitely leaves out President Trump, who has succeeded in creating a ginormous moral vacuum in US foreign policy, courtesy of an absolute tsunami of bad decision making, on the part of himself, and his administration.

There is a companion piece, also in zerohedge.com this morning, with the following headline: More Details Are Emerging About The India-China Border Clash The article goes on to state:

"uthored by Christophe Barraud

More details are emerging about the violent clash on Monday night along a disputed border between India and China high in the Himalayas, which has led to renewed tensions between the two countries. The incident came despite India and China have started to pull back their forces along the border after talks between senior military officials, according to India’s Army Chief Manoj Mukund Naravane on June 13.

According to Bloomberg, “in near sub-zero temperatures in the thin air of 15,000 feet, Chinese and Indian soldiers attacked each other with stones, iron rods and bamboo poles wrapped in barbed wire laced with nails. It is not clear what started the clashes, but by the time they were finished 20 Indian soldiers were dead, along with an unknown number of Chinese casualties.” CNN also confirmed that “they fought with fists, stones, and nail-studded bamboo poles.”

NATO To Probe French & Turkish Warships Near Clash Incident Off Libya

Perhaps predictably given Erdogan's increased threats and foreign adventurism, cracks loom in the NATO alliance over Libya, leading to an official probe by Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg.

It started last week after France complained that Turkey is still breaking a UN arms embargo in effect on war-torn Libya. When a French frigate attempted to intercept a Turkish vessel suspected of running arms into Tripoli on June 10, it was reportedly "engaged" via radar, as if a missile strike was impending. The AP details, based on French defense sources:

According to a French defense official, the frigate Courbet was “lit up” three times by Turkish naval targeting radar when it tried to approach a Turkish civilian ship suspected of involvement in arms trafficking. The Courbet backed off after being targeted.

The French vessel was part of NATO's naval operation in the Mediterranean, Sea Guardian, at the time of the June 10 incident.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Stoltenberg is probably grinding his teeth at night over this, and wishing that NATO really didn't need Turkey in this alliance; unfortunately, because of its geostrategic significance in the region, NATO does need Turkey as part of this.

But Stoltenberg has got to make it clear to Edrogan, that it he wants to remain in the alliance, there are certain things he absolutely, cannot be allowed to do... like arms trafficking off the coast of Libya.

China Officially Charges Two Detained Canadians With Espionage

More than 18 months have passed since Michael Kovrig, a former Canadian diplomat working for an NGO on the mainland, and Michael Spavor, a Canadian businessman specializing in running novelty tours to North Korea, were abruptly arrested by police in China and informed they were under investigation (in China, police can take you into custody before the investigation even begins) for threatening China's national security - an extremely serious charge.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is pretty simple, when looking at the bigger picture, about which which the following story's headline, dateline 27 May, 2020, speaks volumes: Extradition of Huawei Executive Clears a Major Legal Hurdle in Canada

The article goes on to state: "A Vancouver court ruled that fraud charges against Meng Wanzhou in the United States would constitute a crime in Canada, opening the way for her extradition."

These guys are merely "bargaining chips" for the Chinese to use to get Meng Wanzou back from Canada to China before she is extradited to the United States; however, the timing here is very much working against the Chinese government's desire to get this woman repatriated before standing trial in the US.

Whistleblower Claims Dangerous Design Flaws Abound In Boeing's New 777

More than a year has passed since the second fatal crash involving a Boeing 737 MAX 8 killed hundreds of people and led to global grounding of the planes (even as the US FAA initially insisted they were still safe), the 737 MAX 8 is still nowhere near operational.

As Congress ramps up its investigation into the failings at the FAA that led to the 737 MAX 8 being approved, an investigation that has so far revealed an atmosphere of regulatory capture and complacency that prompted one Boeing engineer to famously quip in an internal email obtained by Congressional investigators that the plane was "designed by clowns who were supervised by monkeys".

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF these charges prove true, it will indicate that the top leadership at Boeing is pathologically incapable of learning from past mistakes.

‘Independent’ Facebook fact-checker exposed as partisan smear factory packed with CNN alumni

Facebook fact-checker Lead Stories is a biased outfit bristling with ex-CNN staffers that presents itself as neutral, despite most of its employees having donated to the Democratic Party, a conservative outlet has revealed.

The National Pulse (TNP), whose story about supposed financial links between Black Lives Matter, Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, and fundraiser ActBlue was flagged as “partly false” by Lead Stories on Facebook, did some digging on Wednesday to find out who was behind the smear, after their efforts to contest the label were apparently stonewalled.

What they discovered was an organization staffed almost entirely by Democratic donors, half of whom had worked for CNN in the past. A quarter of the employees were recurring Democratic donors, TNP revealed, suggesting an egregious conflict of interest, given the story they’d flagged at the conservative outlet was about contributions to a Democratic presidential campaign.

Supreme Court Blocks Trump From Ending DACA, Shielding Illegal Immigrants From Deportation

In a blow to President Trump's immigration agenda, the Supreme Court on Thursday ruled to block the Trump administration from ending the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, which protects nearly 700,000 young illegal immigrants from deportation.

In a split ruling which will keep the program open to an estimated 1.3 million non-citizens, the justices said the Trump administration failed to adequately justify terminating the program. In other words - struck down on a technicality that the Trump administration can correct.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The unfunded state mandates, are breaking the financial backs of many of our states right now; but the moral question is, what do you do with these people, who, if they got here as kids, hopefully have learned the English language; are literate, numerate, and have a desire to make something positive of themselves, by enhancing their education?!?

I think we need to make room in our immigration system for people like this, and find a way to welcome them, if they have done these things, and proven themselves worthy of American citizenship.

Is Trump Hiding A $5 Billion Paycheck Protection Slush Fund?

Authored by Mike Shedlock via MishTalk,

More sleazy details have emerged in regards to why the Trump administration wants to hide small business loan details.

Yesterday I asked Why Does Trump Want to Hide Who Took Small Business Loans?

In addition to members of Congress wanting to hide loans they received, Wall Street on Parade has uncovered more sleazy details.

Even though the loans are guaranteed against losses by the SBA, the Federal Reserve launched its own program, called the Paycheck Protection Program Liquidity Facility, to reimburse lenders who make these loans. So far, the Fed has reimbursed $57 billion of these loans as of June 10, out of total loans approved by the SBA of more than $500 billion.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Color me unsurprised, but disappointed, when so many real people so desperately needed this money.

But what can one say about the American political process, when the best that process can "dish up" as Presidential candidates come November, is one corrupt, slezozoid candidate duking it out with another corrupt, slezozoid candidate?!?

Fauci Fearmongers That Football May Not Happen This Year

Just when you thought it was safe to socially-distanced, mask-wearing venture outdoors, and just a day after the English Premier League soccer reopened from its lockdown, America's 'Dr.Doom' - Dr. Anthony Fauci - told CNN that the NFL may not happen this year...

“Unless players are essentially in a bubble – insulated from the community and they are tested nearly every day – it would be very hard to see how football is able to be played this fall.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF there was a TV "news reader" out there with some "male attributes" (and ladies, I am including you in on this, even if those attributes are virtual! :-))

Someone would, live, on-air, inquire of Dr. Fauci on the following:

1. What is his financial relationship with those companies racing to come up with a vaccine for Covid-19?

2. How do people educate themselves better about keeping their own immune systems as "bullet-proof" as possible, because, just as with everything else, knowledge in these ares of science, nutrition, and attitude, is powerful, is it not?!?

But these are questions which will not get asked, or answered, because they do not follow "the correct narrative" on this illness, which is an absolute, damned shame.

Do Deep State Elements Operate Within the Protest Movement?

Does anyone believe the nationwide riots and looting are a spontaneous reaction to the killing of George Floyd?

It’s all too coordinated, too widespread, and too much in-sync with the media narrative that applauds the “mainly peaceful protests” while ignoring the vast destruction to cities across the country. What’s that all about? Do the instigators of these demonstrations want to see our cities reduced to urban wastelands where street gangs and Antifa thugs impose their own harsh justice? That’s where this is headed, isn’t it?

Jun 18 08:32

Or did George Floyd Die of a Drug Overdose?

Floyd’s blood tests showed a concentration of Fentanyl of about three times the fatal dose.
— Fentanyl is a dangerous opioid 50 times more potent than heroin. It has rapidly become the most common cause of death among drug addicts.
— The knee hold used by the police is not a choke hold, it does not impede breathing. It is a body restraint and is not known to have ever caused fatal injury.

What Kind of "Popular Revolution" Is This?!

I have to say that I am amazed that so many folks on the Left seem to think that the current riots in the US are a spontaneous rebellion against police violence, systemic racism, and history of persecution and exploitation of Blacks and Indians, etc. As for the violence, looting and riots – they are either excused as a result of some kind of righteous wrath or blamed on “infiltrators”. In my previous article I tried to show how the Democrats and the US media tried to instrumentalize these riots and to use them against Trump’s bid for reelection. I accompanied the article with a carefully staged photo-op of US Democrats “taking a knee” in solidarity (as if the leaders of the Democratic Party gave a hoot about Blacks or poor US Americans!).

What I did not mention was how the US (and even trans-national) corporate world backed these riots to the hilt. Here are just a few examples of this:

Belarus - A U.S. Sponsored Color Revolution Is Underway

THe CIA is staging a Coloured Revolution here in the USA too!

U.S engineered attempts to overthrow a foreign government by stirring civil arrests are usually named after a color or, at times, a flower. Thus we had an "rose revolution" in Georgia, a "green movement" in Iran and an "orange revolution" in the Ukraine.

But now the CIA and its assortment of supporting organizations seems to have run out of color choices. How else can one explain that their latest attempt in Belarus is called a "slipper revolution".

No, the Guardian, which published the 'Slipper revolution' headline today but later changed it, did not come up with that stupid moniker by itself.

The U.S. State Department funded Belsat.eu TV station was the first to mention slippers in a picture caption on May 31.

Rabobank: "Bolton's Book Marks Another Step Deeper Into The US-China Cold War"

Submitted by Michael Every of Rabobank

Spy Kvetcher
Excuse the repeat pun today, but there was no need to publish in Australia to avoid the Official Secrets Act: just leak the contents to journalists and, hey presto, the Bloomberg headline (so far) is “Book of Bolton”. Which, it must be said, lands some heavy blows on this US president. The particular hits the media are flagging are that Trump allegedly pleaded with China’s Xi Jinping to help him get re-elected, and was fine with re-education/detention camps in Xinjiang.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What is supremely frustrating about the current state of events is having to formulate the question that NO ONE in the bowels of power in DC want us asking, and that is: why are Americans' choices for their President always so absolutely God-awful every four years?!?

Why does someone like a Tulsi Gabbard ( a US Veteran who has seen war, a minority, and a very bright, self-actualized woman) never get a place at the table?!?

Listen, had she been allowed to run by her Party, I would have canvassed for her. I do marketing for a living, and I am not half-bad at it.

So, for our "choices", we have a slezozoid, corrupt Biden, running against a slezozoid, corrupt President Trump, all pumped up by their respective ad agencies to appear as though they are saviors of this country, not to mention the world, when they neither candidate comes close to fitting that particular bill.

And at the end of the day, the party that ALWAYS wins American elections, is the bi-partisan war party, so what benefit to the average American is this illusion of having choice in the American political process, when, in reality, there is none?!?

I'm absolutely no seer, but I would reasonably predict that no matter who wins the Presidential election in November, that this country will go back to a draft; and this time, they will be conscripting our your women, as well as our young men.

Our troop strength is way down from what it needs to be continue to fight these on-going endless wars, from which there appears to be no respite.

Doug Casey on How Fake Science is Used as Propaganda

International Man: The Lancet recently retracted an anti-hydroxychloroquine study, which the media had used to attack Trump.

Trump had admitted to taking hydroxychloroquine as a preventative measure against the coronavirus. The media then went into a frenzy. The talking heads often cited The Lancet study as proof hydroxychloroquine was dangerous.

The bottom line is that bogus research made its way—likely deliberately—into one of the most prestigious peer-reviewed medical journals in the world. People then used this “science” as a political weapon.

What is your take on this?

America’s Own Color Revolution

If we step back from the immediate issue of videos showing a white Minneapolis policeman pressing his knee on the neck of a black man, George Floyd, and look at what has taken place across the nation since then, it is clear that certain organizations or groups were well-prepared to instrumentalize the horrific event for their own agenda.

The protests since May 25 have often begun peacefully only to be taken over by well-trained violent actors. Two organizations have appeared regularly in connection with the violent protests—Black Lives Matter and Antifa (USA). Videos show well-equipped protesters dressed uniformly in black and masked (not for coronavirus to be sure), vandalizing police cars, burning police stations, smashing store windows with pipes or baseball bats. Use of Twitter and other social media to coordinate “hit-and-run” swarming strikes of protest mobs is evident.

NBC Facing "Considerable Backlash" After Pushing Google To Demonetize Conservatives, Trump Tweets

During a Thursday morning flurry of tweets that broke a period of unusually light twitter activity, President Trump took aim at two of his favorite targets - NBC News, and Google - and slammed both companies for their 'collaboration' on trying to demonetize conservative news sites.

Trump tweeted that NBC is facing "considerable backlash" for a reporter's recent "collaboration" with far-left groups in the UK to try to get two media organizations, including Zero Hedge, demonetized on Google's platform.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I keep having to ask myself, over and over; since when did being a "centerist" (which is what I consider myself to be) become such a curse to the rest of society?!?

So Whoopie Goldberg and Joy Behar, from "The View", if you're ever out this way, PLEASE stop by for tea, and whatever you'd like to eat, and tell me why I am, in your perspectives, so absolutely, pig-headedly wrong about being a centerist, and why, because of that, I need to "redeem' myself" in your eyes?!?

Because right now, ladies, I am feeling singularly unapologetic for my perspectives, which I believe to be both logical and reasonable; so I invite you both to demonstrate to me where I am wrong.

NZ Mosque terrorist was wrongly granted firearms licence due to police mistakes, sources say

The March 15 terrorist was wrongly granted a firearms licence due to a string of police failures, sources have told Stuff.

The terrorist, who pleaded guilty to New Zealand's worst mass shooting in March, was not properly inspected by police vetting staff when he applied for a firearms licence in 2017.

Stuff has been told that, among other errors, police failed to interview a family member as required, instead relying on two men who met the terrorist through an internet chatroom.

The error was overlooked when police granted him the firearms licence, allowing the Australian citizen to stockpile the semi-automatic guns later used to murder 51 people.

Google Demonetizes Zero Hedge

As you may have read on NBC, Google has decided to suspend ad hosting on the "far-right" Zero Hedge (which apparently can be anything from "batshit insane Austrian school blog" to Russian propaganda or framed in any other way that serves the agenda of those who disagree with our views - which apparently these days is a lot of people) along with The Federalist, a decision that would have a materially adverse impact for both websites. The reason presented to us for this decision is far more mundane than what has been disclosed by NBC: we are currently appealing it, and expect to remedy it.

That said, we were surprised by the framing of the suspension by the NBC article, which disturbingly appears to be another attempt at activist targeting of inconvenient media outlets, especially since the core argument presented by the NBC employee is different than what Google actually has said. In fact, half the NBC article just happens to be dead wrong.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This demonetizing of zerohedge.com absolutely reeks of either insanity, or desperation on the cusp of madness, courtesy of Google.

Members of Congress took small-business loans — and the full extent is unknown: some GOP lawmakers who benefited from the Paycheck Protection Program also opposed legislation requiring lending transparency.

It’s a bipartisan group of lawmakers who have acknowledged close ties to companies that have received loans from the program — businesses that are either run by their families or employ their spouse as a senior executive.

Republicans on the list include Rep. Roger Williams of Texas, a wealthy businessman who owns auto dealerships, body shops and car washes, and Rep. Vicky Hartzler of Missouri, whose family owns multiple farms and equipment suppliers across the Midwest. The Democrats count Rep. Susie Lee of Nevada, whose husband is CEO of a regional casino developer, and Rep. Debbie Mucarsel Powell of Florida, whose husband is an executive at a restaurant chain that has since returned the loan.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Color me completely unsurprised by these revelations; this is thoroughly what can be expected from the US's criminal political class.

The Seattle Department of Transportation has erected concrete barriers around the Seattle Capitol Hill Occupied Protest, formerly known as CHAZ, signifying that it recognizes the autonomous zone as a permanent fixture of the downtown area.

A reporter From Q13 FOX Seattle posted images of the new barriers on Twitter Tuesday morning.

“The addition of concrete barriers in #CHOP this morning is actually very significant for a couple reasons. 1) This is a clear sign that the city is letting protesters stay long term. They are specifically adding wood around concrete barriers for people to decorate,” Brandi Kruse wrote.

In the photos, concrete blocks placed closely together can be seen around the borders of CHOP, with wood planking attached on the outside so CHOP residents can “decorate” with festive and presumably vulgar graffiti.

THE FEDERAL RESERVE HAS ITS OWN POLICE AND IS PART OF A VAST SURVEILLANCE CENTER – SHOULD YOU WORRY?

Without any Congressional hearings on the matter, the USA Patriot Act in 2001 bestowed on the 12 regional Federal Reserve banks domestic policing powers. While the Federal Reserve Board of Governors in Washington, D.C. is deemed an “independent federal agency,” with its Chair and Governors appointed by the President and confirmed by the Senate, the 12 regional Fed banks are private corporations owned by the member banks in their region. As settled law under John L. Lewis v. United States confirms: “Each Federal Reserve Bank is a separate corporation owned by commercial banks in its region.”

In the case of the New York Fed, which is located in the Wall Street area of Manhattan, its largest shareowners are behemoth multinational banks, including JPMorgan Chase, Citigroup, Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley. So what the USA Patriot Act effectively did was to give multinational corporations domestic policing powers in New York City via the New York Fed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What the Patriot Act did, in essence, was to concentrate more wealth, intel, and policing into the hands of the already monied, and gives them the power to protect their wealth, at the cost of investors who have become "unsecured creditors."

The following article, from investopedia.com, explains this very clearly:

Why Bank Bail-Ins Will Be the New Bailouts

The article goes on to state: "With a bank bail-in, the bank uses the money of its unsecured creditors, including depositors and bondholders, to restructure their capital so it can stay afloat. In effect, the bank is allowed to convert its debt into equity for the purpose of increasing its capital requirements. A bank can undergo a bail-in quickly through a resolution proceeding, which provides immediate relief to the bank. The obvious risk to bank depositors is the possibility of losing a portion of their deposits. However, depositors have the protection of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), insuring each bank account for up to $250,000. Banks are required to use only those deposits in excess of the $250,000 protection.

As unsecured creditors, depositors and bondholders are subordinated to derivative claims. Derivatives are the investments that banks make among each other, which are supposed to be used to hedge their portfolios. However, the 25 largest banks hold more than $247 trillion in derivatives, which poses a tremendous amount of risk to the financial system."

This... is why you only have as much money in the bank as you need to pay your bills, period, end of discussion.

UNIVERSITY PROFESSOR LOSES ADMIN JOB FOR STATING THAT "MEN CANNOT GET PREGNANT"

SOURCE: VIGILANT CITIZEN

Kathleen Lowrey is an associate professor of anthropology at the Faculty of Arts of the University of Alberta, in Canada. She is also serving as the chair of the undergraduate program – an administrative role which includes duties such as chairing a committee about courses, approving transfer credits, and running a special seminar for honors students in the department.

She’s also a feminist. However, according to some anonymous students and the higher-ups of her University, she is not the right kind of feminist. Because she believes that women are … women. Even worse, she believes that men cannot be women because they don’t have a vagina.

These extreme and radical views caused her to become “problematic” as she was pressured to leave her administrative role. When she refused to do so, she was fired.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This firing of this professor smacks of desperation on the cusp of madness.

And speaking of this, when has it become "illogical" to say that biological males cannot have children, to the point when you fire a professor for making that obseervation?!?

Folks, this is an industrial-strength slippery slope moment in Canadian academia which is going to have to be addressed, sooner or later, and I would like to hope, for the sake of free discussion, it is addressed sooner.

The supposed army of 1,000+ pandemic contact tracers in New York City will hit a roadblock this week as they assess the risk of disease spread from COVID-19 positive patients. Mayor Bill de Blasio has forbidden the tracers from asking sick patients if they attended one of the many George Floyd related protests in the nation's most populous city, giving the tracers an insurmountable barrier as they ostensibly keep New Yorkers safer.

"No person will be asked proactively if they attended a protest,” de Blasio spokesperson Avery Cohen told The City. Surveyors recruited as part of de Blasio's "test and trace" campaign will instead ask a series of indirect questions about whom the sick individual may have contacted in recent days.

Many New York tweeters pointed out the hypocrisy of state and local leadership in continuing to enforce a draconian, economy crushing lockdown while barely flinching at scores of protesters not wearing masks.

POLITICAL GROUPS USE “DEEPLY SPOOKY” PROTESTER LOCATION DATA

SOURCE: ARS TECHNICA
It’s no secret that police and other law enforcement agencies have a history of using mobile phone location and other data to target or investigate individuals, and the wave of mass protests in support of black communities and against police brutality this month has provided a rich data trove for them to probe. As it turns out, cops aren’t the only ones diving into the data to follow demonstrators after the streets are clear.

Political advocacy and voter-registration groups are reaping the bounty of location data tied to protests, The Wall Street Journal reports.

The groups use geofencing to contact those who were at protests—basically, reaching out to every device that was in a certain area at a certain time, without specifically identifying the individual. In this case, activists reach out with political messages.

BELARUS - A U.S. SPONSORED COLOR REVOLUTION IS UNDERWAY

SOURCE: MOON OF ALABAMA
U.S engineered attempts to overthrow a foreign government by stirring civil arrests are usually named after a color or, at times, a flower. Thus we had an "rose revolution" in Georgia, a "green movement" in Iran and an "orange revolution" in the Ukraine.

But now the CIA and its assortment of supporting organizations seems to have run out of color choices. How else can one explain that their latest attempt in Belarus. is called a "slipper revolution".

Senator Tim Kaine: The U.S. "Created" Slavery

Democratic Senator Tim Kaine claimed Tuesday during a speech on the Senate floor that the United States "created" slavery and insisted we didn't "inherit" it from anyone.

Though slavery dates back thousands of years, historians found that native American tribes practiced slavery before any Europeans colonized the states.

Saudi Airstrike Kills 13 Civilians in Yemen

An airstrike from the US-backed Saudi-led coalition hit a vehicle carrying civilians in north Yemen on Monday. The airstrike killed 13 people, including four children. The same day, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres removed the Saudi coalition from a global list of parties who have harmed children in conflicts.

The international humanitarian group Save the Children said the victims were on their way home from a local market when the vehicle was suddenly bombed. The Houthi’s Health Ministry identified 11 of the victims, which included one woman and four children, ages 12-14.

The coalition often targets civilian infrastructure, which is why Guterres’s move to remove them from the “blacklist” drew sharp condemnation from human rights groups. Saudi warplanes have hit schools, hospitals, water treatment plants, markets, weddings, and other civilian targets.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to guess that when countries are as wealthy as is Saudi Arabia, one can buy people like UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres as your geopolitical whores, and deny any culpability for murdering civilian innocents; hey, Guterres, what was your price here?!?

We're very keen to know, and right the hell now!!

Netanyahu Still Seeking Defense Minister’s Approval for Annexation: Likud sources say Netanyahu is looking to dissolve coalition government

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Monday that he is still seeking approval of his annexation plan by Defense Minister Benny Gantz, a requirement to gain the Trump administration’s support. Officials from Gantz’s Blue and White party have said they cannot approve a plan until Netanyahu properly outlines one.

Speaking at a recent meeting with his Likud party, Netanyahu said he doesn’t have a map ready. “I wanted to bring annexation for approval soon, but the map isn’t ready yet,” Netanyahu said. The prime minister also said he is not sure where the Blue and White party stands.

The “peace plan” released by the Trump administration in January called for Israeli sovereignty over settlements in the West Bank and parts of the Jordan Valley, an area making up approximately one-third of the West Bank. The plan was immediately rejected by Palestinians, but Netanyahu intends on going through with the annexation and is looking to start on July 1st.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That Netanyahu is so hell-bent on doing this starting 1 July, to the point of potentially even dissolving the coalition government, and risking yet another election where nothing really gets sorted, is more than a little scary, both for Israel and the Middle East in general.

Today is 16 June, so Netanyahu has precisely 14 days to pull this "map" together; is he considering doing this without a map, possibly?!?

He is still facing those corruption charges, which are not going away, making him "geopolitically wounded" in Israel; and no animal, or human, is more dangerous than when they are wounded, either physically... or with humans, geopolitically.

This is a very dangerous time for Israel; I hope that there are some "adults in the room" in the Knesset, telling him, "Bibi, not so fast here on this annexation, please!!"

Democrats (Accidentally) Make The Case Against Teachers' Unions

Via IssuesInsights.com,

In the wake of George Floyd’s death and the subsequent protests/riots calling for “defunding the police,” Democrats have started targeting police unions, saying they are obstacles to accountability and reform. Do they realize that the same can be said of teachers’ unions?

Via IssuesInsights.com,

In the wake of George Floyd’s death and the subsequent protests/riots calling for “defunding the police,” Democrats have started targeting police unions, saying they are obstacles to accountability and reform. Do they realize that the same can be said of teachers’ unions?

“The greater the political pressure for reform, the more defiant the unions often are in resisting it — with few city officials, including liberal leaders, able to overcome their opposition,” the Times reports.

No kidding.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Here in Indiana, the teachers are not unionized, but looking at our young family members, the quality of education our young students are getting, is nothing short of outstanding.

In looking at the youth in my church, the precise same thing can be said.

But if unions can commit so much money to prevent change, how is change going to happen?!?

The short answer is, it cannot.

Manipulating The Masses: Edward Bernays & Why The System Needs Your Compliance

Authored by Mac Slavo via SHTFplan.com,

You are being controlled. You are being manipulated. You are being brainwashed. If you are still stuck believing that your vote counts and choosing sides is “moral” in a system set up against you from day one, the propaganda has worked.

In this video, we look at the ideas of Edward Bernays, nephew of Sigmund Freud, and a pioneering mind behind the field of public relations and modern propaganda – particularly his ideas on how group psychology, and the illusion of choice, can be used to manipulate the masses.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have given up voting in national elections, because at 71, I understand fully about this "illusion of choice"; and the hell of it is, no matter for whom I have voted in previous elections, the bi-partisan war party has always won.

Post-Vietnam, I had hoped for a country which would pull itself together and address the endemic problems of poverty and the racial divides, which have always existed here, but have been exacerbated by every economic downturn we have experienced; that hasn't happened.

The anger which has exploded since the murder of George Floyd has been simmering for a long time, and until these very real issues are addressed, the anger will continue, and we may well see our inner cities continue to burn, which breaks my heart.

Please remember; a lot of the businesses we have seen burned to the ground in these riots, were the life's work of many African American, Asian, and Hispanic entrepreneurs, whose economic futures are also in ruins.

Whitney: Do Deep State Elements Operate Within The Protest Movement?

Does anyone believe the nationwide riots and looting are a spontaneous reaction to the killing of George Floyd?

It’s all too coordinated, too widespread, and too much in-sync with the media narrative that applauds the “mainly peaceful protests” while ignoring the vast destruction to cities across the country. What’s that all about? Do the instigators of these demonstrations want to see our cities reduced to urban wastelands where street gangs and Antifa thugs impose their own harsh justice? That’s where this is headed, isn’t it?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

To me, one of the worst forms of child abuse in this country, and it is endemic in many of our inner cities, is to let kids pass from grade to grade, learning nothing, and "graduating" from high school innumerate; illiterate; and illogical.

This creates a permanent underclass in this country, which is always going to need to abide by the rules, and political strictures of its ruling class, to be "taken care of by the system", and will be punished like hell, including unto death, if they defy those strictures, either deliberately, or accidentally.

And we had better wake the hell up to the reality that not all countries do this to their kids in their inner cities.

Kumon schools, and the private schools like them, have shown the US, and the rest of the world, how to do this; they find out where the child in functioning, make learning fun, so the kid wants to come back to school, and brings them up to the best level they can be.

Of course, these teachers are not unionized, so the educational excellence they create, also winds up on the proverbial "cutting room floor." (what is a cutting room in the age of digital film, BTW?!?)

Tyler, you're giving your age away here!!!

Chinese Forces Kill 3 Indian Troops During First Deadly Border Clash In Nearly 50 Years

Following days of escalating tensions between the two nuclear-armed neighbors, Indian Army officials confirmed that three troops - an officer and two soldiers, to be more precise - had been gunned down by Chinese forces during a "violent faceoff" in Galwan Valley in the Ladakh region, which rests along the country's border with China on Monday night.

A statement from the Indian Army says both sides were meeting to diffuse tensions building up on the border in the last several weeks. Other reports indicate the soldiers weren't shot but had been killed during a rock-throwing melee reminiscent of another border incident back in May, where both sides reported injuries.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Will a couple of "adults in the room" with some geopolitical integrity left, please start working the phones between New Dehli and Beijing, and get the leadership of these two countries to "cool it"?!?

Two nuclear armed neighbors on the cusp of war is double-plus ungood for the whole world-right now, and China has a defense/trade pact with Pakistan China's Belt and Road plan in Pakistan takes a Distinctly Military Turnwhich could mean if things here go "mammary glands vertical", we have China and Pakistan fighting against India, which is under treaty with the US *(from the Obama Administration) to have access to 99% of US defense technology. India will have access to 99% US defense technology, says Obama Official

This is utterly NOT headed in a good direction, and unfortunately, this Administration has completely bungled its relations with almost every country in the world, save Israel.

Do Palestinian lives matter? Not according to the UK Government which continues to cuddle and slobber over the rogue regime that terrorises, dispossesses and slaughters them

Amid the anti-racism protests sparked by the murder of George Floyd by a US policeman, Stuart Littlewood argues that the UK government and the EU continually reward racist Israel “for its knee-on-the-neck brutality” and “for a crime of such enormity as can’t-breathe annexation”.>>

‘Community policing’ is a trick – new enforcers for the same oppressors, not a dismantling of tyranny

As the massive anti-police-brutality protests sweeping the US are diverted into calls to “defund the police” and to replace them with community-based enforcers, Americans would be wise to keep an eye on “who benefits.”

But, if nothing else, the George Floyd killing has reminded Americans that we don’t have a functioning system. US police kill an average of 1,000 civilians every year, with just one percent of those killings leading to an indictment – never mind a conviction. Cops typically receive many more hours of training in target practice than in conflict de-escalation.

Yet many countries manage to operate police forces that maintain a semblance of order without racking up a four-digit body count every year. There are plenty of reform strategies US police forces could adopt, starting with holding cops accountable to the same laws as citizens (i.e. murder and theft are illegal).

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am hoping (and as a Christian, praying) that President Trump's soon-forthcoming Executive Order on Police Reform is intelligently crafted to focus on conflict de-escalation, but balanced with the ability to deal with the violent, repeat offenders in a more intelligent way than does the US penal system allow for at this point in time.

I have a "hug and a punch" relationship with the documentaries of Michael Moore, (and my "punches" are all soft taps on the shoulder!), but he did a brilliant piece called "Where to Invade Next?", where he looks at how other cultures are solving their problems perhaps more intelligently than are their American cousins.

One of the places he visited was a Norwegian prison, where the male population lived in dorms, actually got something approximating some education and drug counseling; and where visits with family were encouraged.

The end result was far less recidivism than we have here in the US, and people tended to stay out of trouble better than did their American counterparts.

‘Proud to be one of the ‘bad actors’ on RT,’ says Rose McGowan after DHS report smearing channel for coverage of BLM protests

American actress Rose McGowan said she is “proud” to be one of the so-called “bad actors” appearing on RT after the US Department of Homeland Security criticized the channel for covering protests over George Floyd's death.
In a bulletin reported this week, the DHS accused Russia, China and Iran of using state-owned media to “amplify criticism” of the US in relation to Floyd's death in May. The unarmed black man died at the hands of a police officer who kneeled on his neck for nine minutes ignoring his pleas for life.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

But what if some of this coverage is actually reasonable, and just?!?

It would appear to me that DHS has some fundamentally more important things to do in this country..... perhaps like, peacefully, taking back the autonomous zone in Seattle, known now by the acronym CHAZ, if that is possible?!?

How long is it's mayor willing to allow what is happening to continue, and at what point will the devolution here be made to stop?!?

That question right now.... is anyone's guess.

UPDATE: this is now called "Capitol Hill Occupied Protests, or CHOP for short. (Sigh; either way, these protestors are looking at a world of hurt, if they believe this is going to be allowed to become a permanent, "no-go" encampment zone.)

MSM still predicting a Covid APOCALYPSE, but their web of lies is collapsing around them

By Peter Andrews, Irish science journalist and writer based in London. He has a background in the life sciences, and graduated from the University of Glasgow with a degree in genetics

The mainstream media is still trying to drum up fear and hysteria on the basis of cherry-picked statistics. A glance at the figures is enough to prove them liars. Someone should let them know: no one is listening anymore.
The US has recently surpassed 2 million cases, according to official figures, representing almost one-third of the world’s coronavirus infections. Much of the reporting on recent statistics features words like ‘spikes’, ‘surges’, and ‘hot spots’, but patterns in the statistics suggest that some areas have dwindling levels of the virus, while it is only now beginning to spread in others.

Robert 'Rich Dad, Poor Dad' Kiyosaki: What The Elites Don't Want You To Know

Authored by Mac Slavo via SHTFplan.com,

Robert Kiyosaki, the author of Rich Dad, Poor dad says there’s something the elitists don’t want you to know. There’s a simple way to take back your power, and it involves removing yourself from any centralized banking system.

These centralized systems were all set up for the elite by the elite, and they don’t want you to know you can remove yourself from the system, or the Matrix, so to speak. All you have to do is invest and spend outside of their system. Decentralized systems are already in place, and the key to breaking free involves understanding that the central banks were not set up to help you.

"Powell Is Now Helpless": Even A Modest Market Wobble Threatens To Devastate The Real Economy

Authored by Eric Peters, CIO of One River Asset Management

“We’re not even thinking about thinking of raising rates,” declared America’s Fed Chairman, all but eliminating uncertainty about the Fed policy path through 2022. The S&P 500 had completed a historic recovery from the pandemic lows to trade higher on the year, its price utterly disconnected from today’s economic devastation.

But markets never discount today, they discount tomorrow. And no sooner had they taken a little peek at what prices looked like back on January 1st then they began to plunge.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Please, and I know I sound like a chipped CD on this, get your credit cards as paid off as humanly possible; credit is likely to become highly more expensive as we wade through this time.

Make sure you have adequate food, meds, water, and protection with which you feel comfortable; find people around you with whom you can barter. If you can buy silver, do so, and now. Economically, there us utterly no telling what is around the corner for this country, or how soon things may cascade downward even more.

A Shocking Eye-Witness Account Of What's Really Happening During The Seattle Riots

Authored by Daisy Luther via The Organic Prepper blog,

A social media post (which has been removed) by a member of the Washington National Guard has been shared more than 7000 times since it was written on June 12th. It’s a true education in mob mentality.

As Toby Cowern says, “Look how much ‘othering’ has been done already. Once that’s happening there’s a big problem.”

He’s right – and here’s the shocking truth about what’s really going on in Seattle from a person who had a front-row ticket to the mayhem.

You may be completely on your own.
As you can see, you can’t depend on anyone to come and save you when unrest shows up in your neighborhood. The people who were there, willing, and able to defend Seattle were forced to stand down. You have to expect to be completely on your own. Learn more about how to stay safe during civil unrest scenarios here.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have never been more grateful for being in an essentially very rural part of the country, where neighbors know who you are, and are very polite, and kind from the heart.

I am not a confrontational person, but there seems to be some agendas driving this kind of behaviour which are not actually in favor of We the People; that concerns me.

Mike and I peacefully demonstrated against the coming war against Iraq on Oahu, all the time being watched and photographed by someone who could well have been an IDF agent; we were not sure.

But the more violent these demonstrations become, the more concerned I am about them being used as the excuse to suspend the Constitution and Bill of Rights, and impose martial law in this country; I am hoping and praying that I am wrong on this.

"You Can't Rally But We Can Protest!"

These people want you to believe that this pandemic is caused by some magical woke virus, one which somehow skips those who have the right politics. What it actually does is raise the suspicion that Democrats and progressives have wanted to keep the economy shut down and people at home as long as possible to affect the outcome of the November election. Your job and your family or your church (also protected by the First Amendment) are not important. Our joining in large crowds to protest is.

There is almost assuredly going to be a spike in COVID cases and it will also almost assuredly be put on red-state governors and the President holding rallies. But Democratic activists and politicians themselves created this situation. They encouraged the world to disregard lockdown and people will now follow their lead, no matter how much they are scolded by the media. These people think we’re all stupid. We’re not.

From Occupation to ‘Occupy’: The Israelification of American domestic security

One of the first comprehensive surveys of Israeli training of US local and federal law enforcement officials.
By Max Blumenthal

(Editor’s note: The eruption of national protests against police brutality following the murder of George Floyd have shed new light on Israel’s training of local police officers across the country.

100 members of the 800-strong Minneapolis police department were trained at a conference in Israel in 2012. That means at least one of every eight members the city’s force has been influenced by the methods of an occupying apartheid entity.

Pentagon Starts Bailing Out Companies That have Lost Business Due to Coronavirus

The Defense Department is sending millions of dollars to keep companies afloat, and more deals are expected.

The Pentagon has begun to bail out U.S. companies that have seen large parts of their business dry up amid the coronavirus pandemic, in a bid to make sure they can still build weapons.

On Wednesday, officials announced that five mid-tier defense companies had received a total of $135 million to “help sustain defense-critical workforce capabilities in body armor, aircraft manufacturing, and shipbuilding,” according to a Defense Department statement.“These actions will help to retain critical workforce capabilities throughout the disruption caused by COVID-19 and to restore some jobs lost because of the pandemic,” Lt. Col. Mike Andrews, a Defense Department spokesman, said in the statement.

Democrats are reportedly HIDING Biden’s economic advisers (as well as Joe himself) - and there is a simple reason for that

By offering no specifics about his policies or advisers, Democratic presidential hopeful Joe Biden is letting supporters project their hopes and dreams onto his campaign. The strategy works, so long as he doesn’t open his mouth.
After drawing outrage from progressives for having Larry Summers – a neoliberal economist who ran the Treasury under Bill Clinton and later Harvard University – advising the campaign, back in April, Biden’s handlers have decided to keep mum about his advisers going forward.

Anyone advising Biden has been sworn to secrecy, banned from even acknowledging their relationship with the campaign, let alone revealing the names of other members, according to a New York Times feature on Thursday, titled ‘Biden’s Brain Trust on the Economy: Liberal and Sworn to Silence’.

“Simply put, do not talk to the press,” according to an email from the campaign the Times somehow obtained.

Pompeo Going to Meet Chinese Officials in Hawaii – Reports

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is going to hold a meeting with Chinese government officials in Hawaii, media reported.

Details of the meeting are being currently finalized, the Politico newspaper reported, citing two sources.

The US Department of State and the Chinese Embassy in the United States have not commented on the reports yet, Politico added.

Under President US Donald Trump's administration, relations between the two countries have considerably soured, with Washington accusing Beijing of unfair trade practices, human rights violations in some of its regions, and encroachment on the special status of Hong Kong. China has denied the accusations and, in its turn, pointed to various violations of international law on the part of the United States.

Treasury chief refusing to disclose recipients of virus aid

Building ramparts of secrecy around a $600 billion-plus coronavirus aid program for small businesses, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin has moved from delay to denial in refusing outright to disclose the recipients of taxpayer-funded loans.

Mnuchin told Congress at a hearing this week that the names of loan recipients and the amounts are “proprietary information.” While he claimed the information is confidential, ethics advocates and some lawmakers see the move as an attempt to dodge accountability for how the money is spent.

Businesses struggled to obtain loans in the early weeks of the program, and several hundred publicly traded companies received loans despite their likely ability to get the money from private financial sources. Publicly shamed, a number of big corporations said they would return their loans.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The secrecy around these loans has to do with the fact that it was the most monied companies in the US which got the lion's share of the prize here, and the current Administration doesn't want it's "base" to understand that, of course.

The Worst of All Possible Worlds? Echoes of Orwell’s Dystopian 1984. Mass Surveillance, Police State Rule, Struggle to Survive…

Longterm harm caused by US policies at home and abroad are far removed from a Panglossian best of all possible worlds view.

What’s going on has echoes of Orwell’s dystopian 1984.

Both right wings of the US war party wage forever wars against invented enemies.

Mass surveillance, controlling the message, and countering resistance are what police state rule is all about, how the US operates domestically, what it wants imposed on other nations worldwide.

The disparity between super-wealth and growing poverty in the US is greater than any time since the 19th century gilded age.

The nation’s economic policy elevates all yachts to unprecedented levels while protracted main street Depression harms ordinary Americans with nothing ongoing to change things.

Countless millions of US households face unacceptable choices between paying rent or servicing mortgages, seeking increasingly unaffordable medical care when needed, heating homes in winter, and feeding family members.

Video: Hearing Is Not Like Seeing: NATO’s Terrorists Burning Syrian Wheat Crops

A video clip shared by local farmers from Ras Al-Ayn showing an inferno burning their livelihood before their eyes, hundreds of acres of wheat on fire just as the crop is due to harvest.

We’ve been reporting about these fires in areas of operation of the NATO’s Turkish (Orwellian-named) ‘Spring of Peace’ military operation in northern, and especially in northeastern Syria regions as well as in areas where remnants and sleeper cells of NATO-sponsored terrorists of ISIS and its affiliates are active in the south of the country.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is a companion story at globalresearch.ca, with the following headline:

The US Admits They Are to Blame for Hunger in Syria

The article goes on to state: "United States Special Envoy to Syria, James Jeffrey, announced on Sunday that Washington had offered Syria a proposal to end the US sanctions. The Foreign and Expatriates Ministry in Damascus said that the statements by James Jeffrey constitute a clear admission by the Trump administration of it being directly responsible for the suffering of Syrians. The Syrians see the increasing sanctions as economic-warfare after the US failure to bring about ‘regime change’, by using terrorists supported by the CIA. Damascus declares the sanctions violate human rights and international law as they affect the Syrian population.

President Trump inherited the Syrian war from its creator, former President Obama. In 2016, Trump campaigned with a promise to stop US support of the war in Syria; however, he has since invaded and occupied several areas in Syria and has declared he is there to keep the oil from being used by Syria. Russia entered Syria in 2015 at the request of Damascus to assist in the fight against Al Qaeda and ISIS terrorists.

The newest sanctions have a 5-year life-span, and can be dismissed if seven criteria are met; however, the first two points are designed specifically to prevent fighting the Al Qaeda terrorists who control Idlib and are holding about 3 million persons as human shields. Both Syria and Russia, its ally in Syria, have said defeating terrorism are strategic goals."

War crimes abroad.... domestic violence directed against citizens at home; but hell, it's... the Good old USA, right?!? The Unhinged, Surveilled State of Amerika, right?!?!?
