Mass Surveillance Is Coming to a City Near YouA tech entrepreneur wants to track the residents of a high-crime American community.

The tech entrepreneur Ross McNutt wants to spend three years recording outdoor human movements in a major U.S. city, KMOX news radio reports.

If that sounds too dystopian to be real, you’re behind the times. McNutt, who runs Persistent Surveillance Systems, was inspired by his stint in the Air Force tracking Iraqi insurgents. He tested mass-surveillance technology over Compton, California, in 2012. In 2016, the company flew over Baltimore, feeding information to police for months (without telling city leaders or residents) while demonstrating how the technology works to the FBI and Secret Service.

The goal is noble: to reduce violent crime.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

How do you "prevent" violent crime? What this guy is explaining, is full-frontal surveillance, not crime prevention.

City and State legislators understand how to prevent crime, or at least, most of it. And what is key is that:

1. We educate all of our children, as though it matters for all our kids. Be on the cutting edge of changes in the workforce, and how they will effect your students when they graduate, so that they will be educated for those jobs which will still exist in American society.

2. Lower class size, so that kids who are behind the 8-ball educationally, can catch up. Because if you lose a kid in elementary school, that young adult will probably put himself, or herself in harm's way, (stealing, running drugs, and winding up in prisons with no real hope for behaviour modifications, to prevent these episodes from happening in the future.)

3. Teachers, stay as close to the parents (or legal guardians) of the kids you teach as possible, maybe face timing, or Skyping with them, on a monthly basis.

4. Analyze why private schools are having more success in teaching children, than do most public school teachers are right now, according to open-sourced records.

5. Find out what really works, in a way that makes kids excited about coming to school on a daily basis.

6. Cities and States in the US, start legalizing all drugs, to take a big bite of cartel revenue; if you do this, then kids will become less incentivized to get involved with gangs.

7. Stop "teaching to the test", because at the end of the day, each child has their own unique way of understanding material. If they are right in their understanding, so much the better, but let them come to the answers by independent means.

8. And get rid of teachers' unions. Once tenured, a really not-well-performing teacher, is almost impossible to fire, no matter what they have done, or not done.

9. Teach kids to work collaboratively; working with and within a group, gives kids the opportunity to work with others, respectfully, and intelligently; that is never a handicap, for the people who learn these skills early.

I know that I have said a few things here that are going to get me in deep "kim chee" (hot water), particularly with teachers and teachers' unions; but perhaps, these are words which needed to be said, particularly at this moment in time, when our kids are having a hard time learning, and are not measuring up to the academic accomplishments of other kids internationally, along with some horrible insights about inner-city public schools in this country:

Can you skip 47 days of high School, and still graduate?!? The story goes on to state:

"Can you skip 47 days of class and still graduate? In Maryland's largest school system, the answer is yes. But the larger question is, in make up tests, how are these kids managing to get a passing grade without attending classes?

A Formula for Failure in L.A. Schools - Los Angeles Times

Developing Countries Lead in Education Innovation: Old-line government schools are failing many children, especially in low-income neighborhoods.

U.S. students’ academic achievement still lags that of their peers in many other countries

And we have a google reference to the following: "The U.S. ranks 17th in educational performance. According to the report, The Learning Curve, developed by the Economist Intelligence Unit, the United States ranks seventeenth out of forty countries ranked in overall educational performance. Finland ranks first."

Whistleblower Who Warned About False Flag Attacks to Justify U.S. Invasion of Iran Found Dead, YouTube Channel Removed

Whistleblower David Goldberg, a resident of New York City, has reportedly died of unknown causes.

Yesterday, the governmentslaves.news site reported that the White House insider who was quoted — David Goldberg (59 years old) — has since been found dead in his New York apartment on June 8th. His death is being investigated and no cause of death has yet been disclosed.

Goldberg also said that a false flag attack would be used to escalate the situation, which appears to be what we’ve seen take place in the Gulf of Oman with the two attack of two oil tankers.

In April of 2019, Goldberg warned the world of a false flag attack planned by the U.S. Military and Intelligence Community working in concert with Israel’s Mossad.

A FLORIDA CITY PAID A $600,000 BITCOIN RANSOM TO HACKERS WHO TOOK OVER ITS COMPUTERS — AND IT'S A MASSIVE ALARM BELL FOR THE REST OF THE US

SOURCE: BUSINESSINSIDER.COM

A Florida city's council voted to pay a ransom of $600,000 in Bitcoin to hackers that targeted its computer systems — and the payout is a sign of how unprepared much of the US is to deal with a coming wave of cyberattacks.

The city council of Riviera Beach, Florida, 50 miles north of Fort Lauderdale, Florida, voted on Monday to meet the demands of its hackers in hope of getting back the city's compromised data, CBS News reported.

According to The Palm Beach Post, the attack began on May 29, when an employee from the police department opened an email attachment that contained malware.

The software quickly spread through the city's computer systems, affecting its email system and even the 911 dispatch operations.

The New York Times reported that the hackers demanded their ransom in bitcoin. The paper said there was no guarantee the hackers would honor their end of the deal after getting the money.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Baltimore is still hurting from a cyber attack a couple of months ago, and it still hasn't come out from under the horrific mess it created.

BIOTECH, PHARMA, AND HEALTHCARE FIRMS REPORT HIGH LEVELS OF CYBERSECURITY INCIDENTS AND FRAUD

SOURCE: NATURALBLAZE.COM

By Sofia Adamson

As documented in an international study for the 2017-18, Kroll Annual Global Fraud & Risk Report, cyber security and fraud threats continue to achieve high levels in the biotechnology, healthcare, and pharmaceuticals industry.

78% of respondents reported that their companies had encountered an information threat or cyber incident, attack, or loss over the past twelve months. Only 7 out of 10 (67%) documented the existence of at least one security crash during the past 12 months.

The document unveils that respondents in the biotechnology, healthcare, and pharmaceuticals industry have a higher sense of susceptibility to security, fraud, and cyber risks, with information-related threats now being the part of highest concern.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The unasked question here, seems to be how can their systems be so sensitive to hacks and attacks, and what can they do to stop this?!?

As all medical records are required to be in electronic format in the US, why isn't the DHT more forthcoming in giving health professionals more robust tools, for countering these problems?!? I mean, The Department of Homeland Security should have the capability for providing some tools available for those most in the most urgent need of cyber security, right?!?

and yet, we barely hear a yawn from DHS on this urgent problem.

OREGON SENATE CLOSES DUE TO ‘POSSIBLE MILITIA THREAT’ AFTER REPUBLICAN WALKOUT

SOURCE: FOX NEWS

The Oregon state Senate closed Saturday after a “possible militia threat” from a right-wing group -- amid a broader drama over a walkout by Republican lawmakers over looming climate change legislation.

Right-wing groups posted their support for the 12 rebel Republicans on Friday, including one group -- the Oregon Three Percenters -- who joined in an armed takeover of a wildlife refuge in 2016.

On Friday, a spokeswoman for Senate President Peter Courtney told The Associated Press that the Oregon state police “recommended that the Capitol be closed tomorrow due to a possible militia threat.”

Oregon State Police, in a statement, said it has been "monitoring information throughout the day that indicates the safety of legislators, staff and citizen visitors could be compromised if certain threatened behaviors were realized."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would tend to think of this as some Government-intelligence Psych-Ops, guaranteed to frighten both the Oregon legislature, and the people of Oregon.

The people from Oregon who I have met, tend to be very level-headed, and never hungry for this kind of confrontation.

US NED-FUNDED MEDDLING EXPOSED IN THE PHILIPPINES

The most recent manifestation of this can be seen in the Philippines where Manila has accused media front Rappler, founded by long-time CNN bureau chief Maria Ressa, and others of representing foreign interests and conspiring with foreign intelligence agencies in direct violation of the nation's constitution.

The Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) in its defense of Rappler would claim:

First were the politically motivated state charges that funding provided to the news website Rappler by a U.S. philanthropic foundation represented a violation of constitutional provisions barring foreign control or ownership of Philippine media.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF the charges by the Philippine government prove true, it would certainly not be the first time, that US media-operators in foreign countries, were accused of illegal activity.

Anti-Vaxxers are Dangerous and Should Be Arrested?

You may have noticed a recent article in The Washington Post by Juliette N. Kayyem entitled “Anti-vaxxers are dangerous. Make them face isolation, fines, arrests.”1

My initial reaction was the article must have been written by a moron. However, my opinion changed when I discovered the author, Ms. Kayyem, who graduated from Harvard law school in 1995. So, it appears this article is a carefully crafted piece of pro-vaccine industry propaganda. In other words, a large pile of nonsense and misinformation masquerading as authoritative information. Propaganda pieces typically contain nonsense and blatant lies. That’s OK because the “Big Lie” becomes believable if repeated often enough. (Who Said That?)9 Let’s take a look at the main point and the most glaring falsehood in the article: “Anti-Vaxxers Are Dangerous.”

JOHNSON & JOHNSON FACES MULTIBILLION OPIOIDS LAWSUIT THAT COULD UPEND BIG PHARMA

SOURCE: THEGUARDIAN.COM

Day after day, the memos flashing across screens in an Oklahoma courtroom have jarred with the family-friendly public image of Johnson & Johnson, the pharmaceutical giant best known for baby powder and Band-Aid.

In one missive, a sales representative dismissed a doctor’s fears that patients might become addicted to the company’s opioid painkillers by telling him those who didn’t die probably wouldn’t get hooked. Another proposes targeting sales of the powerfully addictive drugs at those most at risk: men under 40.

As the state of Oklahoma’s multibillion-dollar lawsuit against Johnson & Johnson has unfolded over the past month, the company has struggled to explain marketing strategies its accusers say dangerously misrepresented the risk of opioid addiction to doctors, manipulated medical research, and helped drive an epidemic that has claimed 400,000 lives over the past two decades.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Good; there are some drug companies which should be sued out of existence, and very much because of their sharp marketing tactics.

ACTING DHS CHIEF 'SABOTAGED' ICE RAIDS BY LEAKING PLAN TO WASHINGTON POST

SOURCE: ZEROHEDGE
Since the Washington Post spoiled the surprise and published a report about the Trump Administration's plan to arrest thousands of migrant families who have been denied asylum - prompting the administration to cancel the raids - many have probably been wondering why somebody inside would break President Trump's longstanding policy of not telegraphing your moves in advance.

Well, now that question appears to have been answered by the Washington Examiner: The acting head of DHS, Kevin McAleenan, reportedly leaked the details of the operation (he traveled alongside the WaPo reporter who broke the story earlier this week) in what sources described ass a deliberate attempt to sabotage the raids.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I certainly hope that President Trump fires the guy, and as quickly as humanly possible; I cannot believe that someone with a true understanding of the financial/human cost of an unprotected border, and the costs to the states already horribly impacted by this, would want it to stay unprotected, and allow more flows of illegal immigrants to stay in this country.

"Intelligent vetting", which would have caused this man to never have been chosen for this position in the first place, has been a real plague on the Trump Administration, and those around him, who believe in his Presidency, need to rally round him right now.

The Dementocrats are applauding the delay, because of how this happened; apparently, none of them care whatsoever about what this deluge of people with zero education; no English; no capabilities more than manual labor, which will be gone an less than a decade, and no real desire to learn, will injure the US economically, because they are unable to work, except on jobs which no longer exist.

The main thrust of the Democrats' desire to see the flow of illegal immigrants increase, is to give them the opportunity to vote in the next elections, to skewer the vote in more Republican-dominated areas of the country, and turn states (marginally) from red to blue.

What we are going to see, as a result of this, will be more crime; more violence against those people who were born here; and a complete fracturing of the economy, due to the financial burdens of those who cannot, or will not work. If you don't believe me, take a look at 21st century England, Germany, and Sweden, as pretty good indicators of what is - and continuing to be - grave issues in this country, until all illegal immigration is stopped.

NATIONAL EMERGENCY ALERTS POTENTIALLY VULNERABLE TO SPOOFING

SOURCE: HOMELANDSECURITYNEWSWIRE.COM
On 3 October 2018, cell phones across the United States received a text message labeled “Presidential Alert.” It was the first trial run for a new national alert system, developed by several U.S. government agencies as a way to warn as many people across the United States as possible if a disaster was imminent. Now, a new study raises a red flag around these alerts—namely, that such emergency alerts authorized by the President of the United States can, theoretically, be spoofed.

On 3 October 2018, cell phones across the United States received a text message labeled “Presidential Alert.” The message read: “THISIS A TEST of the National Wireless Emergency Alert System. No action is needed.”

It was the first trial run for a new national alert system, developed by several U.S. government agencies as a way to warn as many people across the United States as possible if a disaster was imminent.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is nasty, and has to get fixed immediately. But the question remains; if this was so capable of getting spoofed, why didn't the developers of this program not see that and fix it earlier?!?

Read THIS Before Cheering the Next War

Truth Is the First Casualty of War
Over two thousand years ago, the Greek writer Aeschylus said:

In war, truth is the first casualty.

That quote could be read to mean that – once a war starts – then truth goes out the window …

In reality, however, wars are often planned for political reasons (having to do with money, resources or other goals which may have nothing to do with directly protecting one’s country or people) and then false intelligence is created to “justify” the start of the war.

Britain’s MI5 intelligence service explained about the claimed justifications for the Iraq War:

The intelligence and facts were being fixed around the policy.

Welcome To Crazyland

Surfing the cable channels the evening before my Friday a.m. blog duties, I came upon Sean Hannity at Fox News completely losing his shit in a colloquy with Geraldo Rivera about the Iran drone incident. “Bomb the crap out of them!” Mr. Hannity ranted, several times, the veins in his neck throbbing visibly on the high-def screen. I thought I was having an acid flashback to Doctor Strangelove. Geraldo himself seemed a bit nonplussed and embarrassed by Mr. Hannity’s tantrum, but his attempts to calm down the raving anchorman only ramped up the hysteria. One wondered: are there any adult producers off-screen on that network?

Judge in Sandy Hook defamation lawsuits says Infowars readers have posted death threats on the site after its founder Alex Jones claimed she was 'part of a conspiracy to destroy him'

A Connecticut judge overseeing lawsuits filed by bereaved families of the Sandy Hook shooting massacre against conspiracy theorist Alex Jones revealed that she has received death threats from Jones' fans in posts on his Infowars website.

Judge Barbara Bellis wrote in a court filing Friday that the FBI and Connecticut State Police had contacted her about the threats, however she did not release further details about what the messages specifically entailed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is the absolute, polar opposite from what Jones would want to have happen.

I think this may be more crud from the people who want to see him fail.

US ADDS SAUDI ARABIA TO HUMAN TRAFFICKING BLACKLIST

SOURCE: MIDDLE EAST MONITOR
The United States yesterday added Saudi Arabia to a blacklist of countries that do not play a sufficient role in fighting human trafficking.

According to the US’ annual report on human trafficking, Saudi Arabia has failed to prevent large scale violations committed against its foreign labour force, Lebanese newspaper the Daily Star reported.

The US also accused Cuba of human trafficking under the guise of a program to send doctors abroad, pointing out that similar action has been taken against 22 countries.

US Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, said of the countries named in the report: “If you don’t stand up to trafficking, America will stand up to you.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Even if true (and I would not bet against it), why does the US continue to sell weapons to the Saudis, if they hold human life so cheaply, as to endorse and allow human trafficking in their country?!?

IF I were the Butcher of Yemen (I mean, Prince Mohammed bin Salman), I would think that this would be a pretty damned ugly accusation, and at least try to make it appear that my government is "trying to do something constructive". to combat it; and yes, some times, "changing the optics" can make whatever a country is doing, look "reasonable."

But nothing; not even a response to the charges, is what we get with Saudi Arabia here.

And why?!?

Because the Prince understands that absolutely nothing will stand in the way of those weapons he continues to order and buy from the United States, with which to continue his genocide in Yemen.

I can almost hear someone putting this question to President Trump, and him responding with a "NOT sorry!" in response.

After all, war is always good for business, in President Trump's perspective, because it means record revenues for our weaponry designers and manufacturers.

But President Trump, at what moral costs to this country, do these sales pose?!?

I see countless articles, talking about the mounting violence of American adolescents against other kids; against their teachers; family; and police officers.

Is some of this violence due to kids being given SSRI medications, or trying like heck to get off these medications? Absolutely, but we have to look at another factor here.

But I think that one of the real reasons for this violence, and one which is generally treated as though it were Kryptonite, is that kids see people in very high positions of national power, murdering other people in war, and believe that if those heads of state ordering these wars, can get away scott-free with their assassinations, why shouldn't these kids get off scott-free as well as well for their actions?!?

They generally don't have a sophisticated understanding about what absolute, unrestrained power means, and what is done, frequently, to maintain it, like the (most likely signed off upon by the Prince) assassination of Adnan Kashoggi, in the Saudi Embassy in Turkey, for example.

MORSI 'KILLED' BY EGYPTIAN GOVERNMENT, SON SAYS

'HE WAS MURDERED'
Morsi's death was mourned by many people around the world, including in Turkey, where mosques held special prayers on Tuesday, while leaders in Malaysia and Qatar were among those offering tributes.

However, the reaction has been largely muted in many capitals.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, a key ally of Morsi, said this week that the Egyptian government should be tried in international courts for the death of the former president.

"Mohamed Morsi flailed on the courtroom floor for 20 minutes and the authorities did not help him. This is why I say Morsi did not die, he was murdered," Erdogan told supporters on Wednesday at an election rally in Istanbul.

"We, as Turkey, will follow this issue and do everything possible for Egypt to be tried in international courts for Morsi's death," he said, calling on the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation to take action towards this end.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF true, Color me unsurprised by this possible revelation.

And why, at the very first sign of his distress, was he not given medical aid?!? That seems very fishy to me.

US CYBER COMMAND REPORTEDLY LAUNCHED A CYBERATTACK AGAINST IRAN AS TRUMP NIXED HIS MILITARY STRIKES

SOURCE: BUSINESSINSIDER.COM
United States Cyber Command on Thursday reportedly launched an operation against an Iranian spy group with ties to the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps, despite President Donald Trump's last-minute scrapping of a direct military strike, former intelligence officials said in a Yahoo News report.

The Iranian group is believed to have supported the limpet mine attacks against two tanker ships earlier last week, which resulted in the US increasing its military posture against the country. The group reportedly tracked and targeted both military and civilian vessels sailing through the Strait of Hormuz.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

My real concern this weekend, is that Israel will conjure something up something absolutely wicked, from which the US government and military will not be able to walk away.

IF President Trump thinks that such a thing is impossible, because he and Netanyahu are such BFFs, I would strongly caution him to think again; this wouldn't be the first time Israel tried a stunt like the attack on the USS Liberty, which Israel tried to blame on Egypt.


New Evidence Proves Israel Attacked USS Liberty With Orders to Kill 294 Americans

The article goes on to state: "America is commemorating the 52nd anniversary of the Israeli attack on USS Liberty.

This article was first published on November 14, 2014

Fresh evidence presented in an exclusive Al Jazeera investigation into the Israeli attack on the USS Liberty that killed 34 Americans proves the incident was not a mistake. Since 1967 the ‘official story‘ has been that Israel simply misidentified the American ship as Egyptian for several hours. Israel apologized to the United States and for several decades we’ve been led to believe that this could be the only explanation for why Israeli jets and torpedo boats would launch rockets, missiles and torpedoes at an American target for more than two hours.

A new documentary called ‘The Day Israel Attacked America” airing on Al Jazeera was produced and directed by award winning British film maker Richard Belfield. Thanks to the audio evidence obtained by Belfield, it is finally possible to prove the survivors of the attack on the USS Liberty were right all along. The survivors have always been extremely confident that Israel’s intentions were to sink that ship and kill everyone on board so Egypt could be blamed for the tragedy. Why? To convince President Lyndon Johnson (and the American public) that we needed to declare war on Egypt. This is the definition of a ‘false flag‘. (can you say 9/11?)"

Cyber-sleuths responsible for Russiagate now warn of ‘Iranian hackers’

Iranian hackers are threatening US computer systems, cybersecurity firms FireEye and CrowdStrike have claimed, just as tensions between Washington and Tehran pulled back from the brink of war.

“Really, we're seeing increased cyber activity that seems to be focused on the West,” Adam Meyers, vice president of intelligence at CrowdStrike, told Politico. “In early June, mid-June is when it really started to kick off.”

Ben Read, senior cyber-espionage analyst at FireEye, confirmed the timeline and told the paper that the latest campaign is led by a government-connected Iranian hacker group known as APT33 or “Refined Kitten.”

Trump Accused Of 'Rape' One Day After Refusing to Go to War With Iran

President Donald Trump was accused of "rape" by a feminist journo one day after he refused to go to war with Iran.

Despite massive pressure from neocons in his administration to attack Iran after they shot down a US drone over the Gulf of Oman, Trump elected not to carry out a strike Thursday evening because he said the military's planned attack would have killed 150 people, which he said was not "proportionate to shooting down an unmanned drone."

"A-squared, B-squared equals C-squared," Hannity said. "Radical Islamic mullahs married to weapons of mass destruction, nukes, equals a potential holocaust."

"We can't let that happen," he said. "That's it -- it's mathematical."

Mainstream Media Faults Trump for Not Following Through on Iran Attack

Mainstream media outlets were of a lot of different minds on the Iran question earlier this week, counseling different approaches for US-Iran tensions. Friday, those outlets were broadly united, upset by the lack of a new war they thought sure was coming.

To be sure, Thursday was meant to be the start of the US-Iran War which hawks have been trying to piece together for generations. Trump ordered the attack, but ultimately, called it off a mere 10 minutes from a strike.

What had been a subject of debate was now USA Today accusing Trump of “not following through.” As concerning as blundering into a huge war in the Middle East had been, the new talking point was Trump showing weakness, and per Kori Schake of the Atlantic, damaging “America’s credibility.”

AMAZON GETS U.S. PATENT TO USE DELIVERY DRONES FOR SURVEILLANCE SERVICE

Amazon.com Inc is exploring using drones not just to deliver packages but also to provide surveillance as a service to its customers, according to a patent granted by the United States Patent and Trademark Office.

The delivery drones can be used to record video of consented user’s property to gather data that can be analyzed to look out, say for example, a broken window, or a fire or if a garage door was left open during the day, the patent described.

According to the patent, the surveillance function of the drone can be limited through geo-fencing, a technology used to draw a virtual boundary around the property under surveillance. Any image or data that the drone captures outside the geo-fence would be obscured or removed.

The application for the patent was filed by the e-commerce giant in 2015 and granted on June 4.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What about people who do NOT want to to have their properties surveilled in such a way, and have therefore NOT given this consent?!?

I somehow, do not have a "warm and fuzzy feeling" about the use of these surveillance drones!!

Tanker attacks in the Gulf — evidence or warmongering?

Military experts emphasize that attaching and removing limpet mines on ships is risky and requires a great deal of expertise. The explosive devices are magnetically attached to ships, usually below the waterline. Limpet mines are usually manually placed by a swimmer or combat diver on the underside of a ship's hull. The blast that tore into the hulk of the Kokuka Courageous, according to US data, was a good meter above the waterline. American evidence against Iran focuses on this ship.

Conspicuous in this context is a different portrayal of the incident by the head of the Japanese shipping company that owns the tanker: Yutaka Katada told the press on June 14 that members of the crew had seen something fly towards the vessel just before the explosion.

The Art of Shaping Memory

If the purpose of Trump’s speech was to make his listeners feel good, he delivered. Yet in doing so, he also relieved them of any responsibility for thinking too deeply about the event being commemorated.

Now, let me just say that I hold no brief for Josef Stalin or the Soviet Union, or Marxism-Leninism. Yet you don’t need to be an apologist for Communism to acknowledge that the Normandy invasion would never have succeeded had it not been for the efforts of Marshal Stalin’s Red Army. For three full years before the first wave of G.I.s splashed ashore at Omaha Beach, Russian troops had been waging a titanic struggle along a vast front in their own devastated land against the cream of the German military machine.

WATCH: CNN Goes All In With AOC In Comparing Trump to Hitler

On a night when President Trump officially kicked off his 2020 re-election campaign with a theme surrounding the greatness of our nation, Democrats were engaged in a full-throated defense of one of their own saying America is running “concentration camps” comparable to Nazi Germany.

It is a stark contrast, to say the least.

And the resistance party’s favorite news network, CNN, was so enamored with the concentration camp/Hitler analogy, initiated by New York Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, that they fully committed to defending it on multiple occasions Tuesday evening.

It’s yet another example that CNN is the undisputed leader when it comes to being the ‘enemy of the people.’

We regret ‘baseless’ accusations by intl probe Russian military complicit in MH17 crash – Moscow

Russia called regrettable the “absolutely baseless” accusations made by the international investigation into the downing of Malaysian Airlines flight MH17, which said the Russian military was involved in the incident.

On Wednesday, the Dutch-led Joint Investigations Team (JIT) accused three Russians nationals and a Ukrainian of playing a significant role in the downing of MH17 over Ukraine in 2014. All 298 people onboard died back then.

The JIT said the individuals, who were fighting on the side of the rebel forces in eastern Ukraine, received a Buk surface-to-air missile from Russia, possibly provided by the Russian military. The Russian foreign ministry said such accusations “deserve only regret.”

On top of that, the allegations were not backed up by reliable evidence and followed a “not quite coherent” line of argument. At the same time, the ministry maintains, JIT still opts to ignore information provided by Moscow.

The Center said in a statement on Wednesday that it’s studying information exposed by the Wall Street Journal indicating that Maduro has managed to hold onto his regime through selling some 73.3 tons of gold valued at $3 billion, to Middle East and Turkish companies between 2017 and February 2019.

Publisher Punches Back Against Trump’s ‘Treason’ Charge Against NYTimes

The publisher of the New York Times hit back Thursday at accusations of treason by Donald Trump, saying it “crosses a dangerous line in the president’s campaign against a free and independent press.”

Writing in the Wall Street Journal and not his own newspaper, Arthur Sulzberger warned there was “no more serious charge a commander in chief can make against an independent news organization”.

WHEN REPORTERS BECOME TROLLS

Yesterday we honored the memory of Jeff Bradstreet MD, a trailblazing doctor who died under mysterious circumstances in 2015.

Interestingly enough the very same ring of Internet trolls who harassed him and his family after he died are still active.

More bizarrely, these people who are clearly unhinged, abusive and dishonest by any standard are still treated as “authorities” by the mainstream news media.

False Flags, Cooked Intelligence and the ‘War on Terror’ Con

Iran released a statement today saying they will not extend the deadline on salvaging the nuclear deal. European countries will have until July 8th to save the Obama-era deal and take concrete steps to shield Iran from U.S. sanctions or they will continue their program to enrich uranium.

I wrote last month in “Trump Pushes Back On War With Iraq But For How Long” whereby a White House insider had reported in April that “President Donald Trump and his advisors are planning an invasion of Iran and plan to use tactical nuclear strikes. The plan calls for Iran to be wiped off the map, and will cost U.S. taxpayers trillions of dollars”.

He also said, “the mainstream media will promote the war and Trump will go right along with it”.

Fox News Just Turned on Trump by Siding With Democrats on a Top Issue

Fox News got where it is today by telling the truth when the rest of the mainstream media wouldn’t.

But in recent months, they have been shifting away from their roots.

And Fox News just turned on Trump by siding with the Democrats on a top issue.

With a few notable exceptions, Fox News is turning on President Trump.

While there are hosts that still fairly cover President Trump, like Tucker Carlson, Laura Ingraham, and Sean Hannity, most are basically working for the Democrat Party now.

In fact, the network recently hired top Hillary Clinton ally Donna Brazile to prove that.

US Navy says mines used to carry out Gulf tanker attack 'bear a striking resemblance' to those used by Iran – and reveal investigators have removed fingerprints from the ship

By ROSS IBBETSON FOR MAILONLINE

The US Navy says mines used to carry out a Gulf tanker attack 'bear a striking resemblance' to those used by Iran, as investigators retrieve fingerprints from the ship.

The Navy today displayed limpet mine fragments and a magnet removed from a Japanese vessel, one of two oil tankers attacked in the Gulf of Oman last Thursday.

'The limpet mine that was used in the attack is distinguishable and also strikingly bearing a resemblance to Iranian mines that have already been publicly displayed in Iranian military parades,' said Commander Sean Kido at the Naval Forces Central Command (NAVCENT), near the Fujairah port in the UAE.

He added that fingerprints retrieved from the stricken Japanese vessel would be used to mount a criminal case.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

To the author of this piece of codswallop; Mr. Ibbitson, did you actually take what Commander Kido told you as pure gospel?!?

Number one, against what data bases could the US intelligence agencies possibly compare these prints?!?

Did Commander Kido believe that Iran's President Rouhani would just open their own databases to American investigators on the case?!?

I think we have a resounding, thuddling NO coming forth as Iran's answer here.

And secondly, this issue of "bearing a striking resemblance to Iranian missiles which have already been publicly displayed in Iranian Military Parades.." Just because something "looks similar"to something people think they have seen in Iranian military parades, does not mean that the missile is the genuine article.

And 3rd, why, in the name of heaven, would Iran do something so ham-fistedly, pig-headedly stupid, as to try to do something menacing in the Persian Gulf, when they are desperately striving to stay away a US and/or Israeli attack against it?!?

Gentlemen, the short answer is, they would not; not in a zillion years, period, end of discussion.

And to our readers and listeners, this flim-flammery surrounding these incidents, are beginning to sound like desperation on the cusp of madness; people both inside the beltway, and many of our closes allies are having one heck of a hard time with this; and for good reason.

Josh Hawley Introduces Bill to Put Washington In Charge of Internet Speech

Sen. Josh Hawley (R–Mo.) is introducing legislation to clamp down on free expression online, under the pretense of fighting tech-company "bias" against Republicans.

Hawley's solution is to amend Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, a measure that prevents individual users of internet platforms and the companies that run them from being treated as legally indistinguishable from one another. Without it, digital companies and the users of their products (i.e., all of us) could be sued in civil court or subject to state criminal prosecution over content and messages created and published by others.

State attorneys general have been howling about Section 230 for more than a decade because it means that only the federal government can criminally prosecute internet intermediaries. Thus, state prosecutors don't have the opportunity to seize assets and bring in big financial settlements themselves.

DOWNING OF US MQ-9 DRONE OVER HODEIDA SHOWS DIRECT US INVOLVEMENT IN YEMENI WAR

SOURCE: MINT PRESS
HODEIDA, YEMEN — News that a U.S. government drone was shot down over Yemen’s port city of Hodeida has provoked anger among local residents, who say it is clear evidence of direct U.S. involvement in a war which has resulted in the world’s worst humanitarian crisis, according to the UN, and has left almost 25 million people in need of aid.

On Sunday, Lieutenant Colonel Earl Brown, a spokesman for the U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM), said in a statement that on June 6 Houthi fighters shot down a U.S. government MQ-9 Reaper drone using an SA-6 surface-to-air missile, adding that the altitude at which the drone was shot down “indicated an improvement over previous Houthi capability.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

For the last 4 years, the US government and military have been aiding an abetting Saudi war crimes in Yemen.

This means that Yemeni babies, toddlers, and children have been blown to smithereens, courtesy of US mid-air refueling, and "guidance."

I must warn you; I am attaching a set of "lose your lunch" images, but it is apparent that these atrocities haven't even penetrated the thinking of most Americans; but they need to.
Images: Yemeni kids killed, courtesy of US enabled Saudi bombing raids

More images: Yemeni kids getting killed, maimed for life, courtesy of US-enabled Saudi bombing:

More images; Yemeni kids killed, courtesy of US-enabled saudi bombings

Because US and Saudi military have blockaded Yemeni ports, as Yemen has to import much of its food, children are dying from starvation.

Images: Yemeni infants and children, dying of starvation

Because the water infrastructure has been totally destroyed, courtesy of US-enabled bombing, cholera and dysentery run rampant.

Yemeni kids, infected with, and many dying from, cholera

Anyone who can look at these images, and not feel at least a modicum of compassion, and sadness, at what is going on in their names, and with their tax dollars, cannot possibly be human, and have obviously had their conscience surgically removed.

It is time, brother and sister readers, for a national discussion, about the US's enabling of Saudi war crimes in Yemen.

Remember that admonition, "If you see something, say something!!" And RIGHT BLOODY NOW, PLEASE, would be a reasonable moment to express your thoughts and feelings about the US aiding Saudi war crimes in Yemen to your alleged Congressional Representatives. Please don't be loud or abusive; just present the facts as you know them. Copy this article, if you feel you need to; and let these people understand that We the People understand what is happening; it is a genocide, which deserves no more US support whatsoever, period, end of discussion.

I would like to hope that with these links, there are a couple of issues which will clear up certain false premises about what the Federal government is willing to do, to achieve a geopolitical end, which you may have entertained all your life, until just this moment.

1. The US military will never assist in the assassination of the innocent: WRONG!!

2. The US military will not assist other governments in "winning" a war against its enemies, when only true, honorable, and hard-won negotiations can resolve the issue: WRONG!!

We Americans are all, now, citizens of a war crimes-centric government, and we have been, pretty much since World War II. The question is, now that we know, what can we do?!?

As a Christian pacifist activist, I will never advocate violence; but peaceful protesting, under the protection of the First Amendment to the Constitution, is something we all need to be thinking about right now.

Remember what ultimately pulled this country out of Viet Nam?!? Thousands of protestors, marching in DC, to advocate for the ending to that despicable war.

Think about that for a moment, would you, please?!?

CNN Stops Airing Trump Rally the Moment the Crowd Starts Chanting ‘CNN SUCKS’

Not long after President Donald Trump began his Tuesday campaign rally in Orlando to herald the beginning of his presidential campaign, the audience began chanting “CNN sucks.”

This is not the first time this has happened at a Trump rally.

CNN had chosen to air the event Tuesday, but as soon as the chants began, they cut away.

“This was a defining moment in America history,” Trump said referring to his first campaign announcement in 2015. “Ask them right there,” the president said, pointing at the media attending the rally.

That’s when the crowd began chanting.

“All right. We’ve been watching the president kick off his reelection bid. He’s been on stage for about six minutes. Within two minutes he did talk about the economy, within four minutes it was attacks on the media,” CNN host John Berman said.

Some wondered why CNN was even airing the rally.

Orlando Sentinel Endorses 'Not Donald Trump' Just Hours Before His Florida Rally

President Donald Trump has been bragging about early birds itching to attend his campaign rally Tuesday night in Orlando, Florida, but a least one sour note marks the gathering.

Just hours before the president is set to kick off his 2020 reelection campaign at the event, The Orlando Sentinel published a scathing editorial that endorses “Not Donald Trump.”

The newspaper, which is owned by the Tribune Publishing Co. and leans “right center” according to MediaBiasFactCheck.com, acknowledged that “some readers will wonder how we could possibly eliminate a candidate so far before an election, and before knowing the identity of his opponent.”

‘AGE OF DIGITAL TERRORISM’ IS COMING, IMPACT MAY BE AS DANGEROUS AS WMDS – MOSCOW

SOURCE: RT
Terrorist groups exploit the internet for hacking and global outreach, the impact of which could soon become no less dangerous than that of weapons of mass destruction, a senior Russian security official warned.

The rapid development of technology allows terrorists to “even more actively” use the internet for “recruitment, attracting funds, hacking and other cybercrimes,” the deputy secretary of Russia’s Security Council, Yury Kokov, said at a security-themed event in the city of Ufa in central Russia.

The official said the internet has become the “main mechanism” for various extremists to “control their scattered forces and resources,” while there are currently around 30,000 “extremist and terrorist websites” online.

This allows us to conclude that an age of technological and digital terrorism is approaching. In terms of consequences, [this type of terrorism] may be comparable to the weapons of mass destruction in the nearest future.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Deputy Secretary Kokov, with all due respect, this digiterror is already here; have you not seen the chaos in the US city of Baltimore, because its computers got hacked with ransomware?!?

Hackers have been holding the city of Baltimore’s computers hostage for 2 weeks:
A ransomware attack means Baltimore citizens can’t pay their water bills or parking tickets.

To the best of my understanding, this issue has not yet been resolved.

And there is another reason these terrorists are training "frogmen"; that is to destroy fiber optic cables, which connects countries for communication purposes.

VOX, AN ANTI-IMMIGRATION PARTY, HAS 24 SEATS IN SPANISH PARLIAMENT AND 3 IN EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT.

Spain's far right party, Vox-es, has demanded an explanation from Youtube, as to why their account was suspended "without any explanation."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The answer is transparently simple; Youtube doesn't like their perspective, therefore, the channel had to be closed down.

This is the digital violence of this world's very monied far left; deplatform; demonetize; and destroy the work anyone, who has the temerity not to think precisely, as they do.

Israel minister praises role of IHRA anti-Semitism definition in fight against BDS

Israel’s Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan yesterday praised the role played by a controversial definition of anti-Semitism in the fight against the Palestinian-led boycott campaign.

Speaking at a conference he described as “the most important gathering of the pro-Israel and anti-BDS community”, Erdan hailed the efforts being made to undermine the Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) campaign, telling delegates: “We built the network to fight the network.”

“We do have a lot to be proud of tonight,” the minister declared. “We did what we said we were going to do: We moved from defence to offense and put BDS on the defensive.”

In front of a reported 300 pro-Israel activists and “legal experts” from over 30 countries, Erdan stressed the importance of attacking BDS as “anti-Semitic”.

The Trump-Bolton Duo is just like the Bush-Cheney Duo: Warmongers Using Lies to Start Illegal Wars

History repeats itself. Indeed, those who live by war are at it again. Their crime: starting illegal wars by committing false flag attacks and blaming other countries for their own criminal acts. On this, the Donald Trump-John Bolton duo is just like the George W. Bush-Dick Cheney duo. It is amazing that in an era of 24-hour news, this could still going on.

Lawyers: Files sent by Alex Jones contained child porn

Appearing angry on his web show based in Austin, Texas, Jones accused one of the families' lawyers, Christopher Mattei, of planting the child pornography in the files in an effort to frame Jones. He also offered a $1 million reward for information on who sent the emails containing child porn.

In a motion filed in Waterbury Superior Court on Monday, lawyers for the families accused Jones of threatening Mattei by naming him on the show, showing his photo and wrongly accusing him of planting the child pornography. The motion will be discussed at a court hearing on Tuesday. Pattis denied that Jones threatened Mattei.

"Total war! You want it, you got it!" Jones said on the show while talking about Mattei, a Democrat who ran unsuccessfully for state attorney general last year. "I'm not into kids like your Democratic party. ... So get ready!"

What's Going on With Those Child Porn Allegations Against Alex Jones

It is not clear whether Jones or any of his InfoWars associates were aware the images existed.

Monday’s court filing states that InfoWars produce “a massive volume of documents” and indicated they did not have time to review all of the contents to “cull the non-responsive documents.”

Oil Tanker Attacks in the Gulf Have US Fingerprints All Over Them

It was the Spanish philosopher, poet and novelist, George Santayana (1863-1952), who warned us all: "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it".

Watching the unfolding US promoted narrative in the Persian Gulf seas over this past few days and weeks those words should ring loudly in the ears of everyone who values peace and opposes the carnage, destruction and horrific waste of life delivered by war.

If you swallow the American propaganda plastered across newspaper front pages and dominating news bulletins on every Western TV news channel then you really are as bright as a dark night.

INTELLIGENCE EXPERTS QUESTION IRAN VIDEO: 'U.S. TRACK RECORD ON GINNING UP EVIDENCE FOR WAR IS NOT GOOD'

The black and white surveillance video is exceedingly grainy. It shows what U.S. military officials say is an Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corp patrol boat bobbing alongside the Kokuka Courageous, one of the two tankers damaged by explosions Thursday in the Gulf of Oman that the Trump administration blamed squarely on Iran.

In the 1:39-minute video, released late Thursday by the U.S. Central Command, several crew members aboard the Gashti-class patrol boat appear to be removing an object from the hull of the tanker before the boat then backs up and motors away. The video is far too fuzzy to discern what the object is. But according to the U.S. military officials, the Iranian crew members removed one of their own unexploded limpet mines to hide evidence of their involvement in the explosions. The officials said several Iranian patrol boats had rushed to the Kokuka Courageous to rescue crew members who had abandoned ship in rafts and told the Iranians about the unexploded mine.

Dear President Trump: If you do not end censorship by Big Tech, you will lose the election and thrust America into a violent civil war

Pay attention to the fact that the intolerant, bigoted Left in America today has zero respect for freedom of speech or the rule of law. Over the last two years, they have been systematically silencing all conservative, Christian and pro-Trump voices in order to deliberately suppress their speech. Now, left-wing tech giants are even silencing whistleblowers like James O’Keefe (Project Veritas), setting a new precedent that says all whistleblowers who make Leftists look bad will be censored and de-platformed.

President Trump, meanwhile, somehow seems to believe he doesn’t need the voices of his supporters anymore. He thinks he can win the election even while his advocates are unfairly silenced by the left-wing bullies of the tech industry who now act like full-blown fascists.

Japan Suggests United States, Israel Also 'Technologically Sophisticated Enough To Conduct The Tanker Attack'

The Japanese government has been requesting the United States for concrete evidence to back its assertion that Iran is to blame for the attacks on two tankers near the Strait of Hormuz on Thursday, government sources said Sunday.

The request came after U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo gave a statement hours after the attacks blaming Iran but without offering proof. The Department of Defense later released a video allegedly showing an Iranian patrol boat removing an unexploded mine attached to the side of the Japanese-operated tanker Kokuka Courageous.

But Japanese government officials remain unconvinced, the sources said. "The U.S. explanation has not helped us go beyond speculation," said one senior government official.

Japan has been seeking more concrete evidence through various channels, including Foreign Minister Taro Kono who is likely to have made the request during a call with his counterpart on Friday, the sources said.

The Hitlerization of Jeremy Corbyn (Among Others)

Every time you think the corporatocracy’s manufactured anti-Semitism hysteria cannot possibly get more absurd, they somehow manage to outdo themselves. OK, stay with me now, because this is a weird one.

Apparently, American Hitler and his cronies are conspiring with some secret group of “Jewish leaders” to stop British Hitler from becoming prime minister and wiping out all the Jews in Great Britain. Weird, right? But that’s not the weird part, because maybe American Hitler wants to wipe out all the Jews in Great Britain himself, rather than leaving it to British Hitler … Hitlers being notoriously jealous regarding their genocidal accomplishments.
