Lindsey Graham: My Goal Is To Declassify FISA Warrant Applications

Via SaraACarter.com,

“My goal is to explain to you and the American public how the system failed and make sure it never happens again,” said Sen. Lindsey Graham on ‘Hannity’ show on Wednesday night.

“We’re going to pursue this in a transparent fashion,” Graham said.

“We’re going to declassify as much as we can, including the FISA warrant applications.”

Graham said he will seek to release to the public as much information possible about former British spy Christopher Steele.

“I’m going to give you all the information that was in the system about how suspicious people were of Christopher Steele, how biased he was, [and] let you read it for yourself. Transparency and accountability is my goal,” he said.

“The system had a lot of notice about [Christopher Steele] bias,” Graham said.

Government Orders Google To Let Employees Express Unpopular Political Views

In what appears to be a huge victory for Google employees who don't ascribe to the ultra-liberal Silicon Valley monoculture, the National Labor Relations Board has reached a settlement with Google over complaints that the search giant punishes employees for speaking out on political and workplace issues that don't comport with the company's agenda.

The settlement, which was reportedly approved by an agency director this week, according to WSJ, comes in response to a pair of complaints filed by conservative employees about how the company handles workplace dissent.

One complainant, former engineer Kevin Cernekee, claims he was fired for expressing his right-leaning political views on an internal company message board (Google, for what it's worth, claims he was fired for "misusing company equipment")

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When, please, did the center of this country, and it's political dialogue, get placed so out of kilter, that people seem to be spoiling for a fight for what used to be a reasonable, logical encounter with people whose views differ from yours?!?

I am feeling like I need to self-sensor whenever I talk to people whose political views may diverge even slightly from mine, and I am bloody tired of it!!

"You're Forecasting A Revolution" - Household Leverage Ratios By Wealth Distribution

Authored by Global Macro Monitor,

We are just starting to play with the wealth distribution data and will have much more coming your way. What we have seen so far is shocking.

The distribution of wealth has deteriorated significantly over the past 20 years and is now so skewed toward the top that average U.S. household wealth is close to $1 million, though the median household wealth is only around $70k.

In fact, the aggregate level of wealth of the bottom 50 percent peaked in Q1 2000, the height of the dot.com bubble, and is down almost 10 percent in nominal terms. Whereas, the aggregate wealth level of the top 1 percent is up almost 120 percent over the same period.

If I brought a number or a forecast like that to my manager when I was a very young economist working on the World Bank’s capital flows model back in the day, he would say,

“You are forecasting revolution.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The numbers pretty much always tell the story; and these numbers are downright terrifying.

Epstein Did Not Die in His Prison Cell: FEDS

Jeffrey Epstein was removed from his prison cell to another part of the Metropolitan Correctional Center hours before his death, casting serious doubt about the narrative surrounding the pedophile’s reported suicide, federal law enforcement sources said.

The shocking revelations, if true, shatter the Justice Department’s narrative that Epstein hung himself in his cell with a prison bed sheet.

The FBI is investigating Epstein’s death which now includes reports that Epstein was taken to a different part of the prison before MCC officials made a 911 call to the New York Fire Department.

The Bill Of Rights Turns 230, And What Do We Have To Show For It? Nothing Good

Authored by John Whitehead via The Rutherford Institute,

“That was when they suspended the Constitution. They said it would be temporary. There wasn't even any rioting in the streets. People stayed home at night, watching television, looking for some direction. There wasn't even an enemy you could put your finger on.”

- Margaret Atwood, The Handmaid's Tale

It’s been 230 years since James Madison drafted the Bill of Rights - the first ten amendments to the Constitution - as a means of protecting the people against government tyranny, and what do we have to show for it?

Nothing good.

In America today, the government does whatever it wants, freedom be damned.

We can pretend that the Constitution, which was written to hold the government accountable, is still our governing document, but the reality of life in the American police state tells a different story.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Particularly at least during the last 20 years, the Constitution and Bill of Rights have been vivisected, and have been condemned to die an horrendous death, courtesy of those "Acquisitions" of major corporations, hysterically still referred to as our "Congressional Representatives."

This is why, when legislation is drafted, it invariably protects the corporate interests which have "purchased" that legislation into being, in broad daylight, through the furtive actions of these alleged "Congressional Representatives", who do understand that what they are doing is terrific for the corporations which own them, but generally lousy for We the People.

Gun Sales Surge After Democrats Demand Buybacks & Confiscation

Authored by Mac Slavo via SHTFplan.com

August gun sales were up 15% thanks to Democrats’ totalitarian demands for mandatory buybacks. Those who bought guns were Americans seeking self-protection and with deep concerns that President Donald Trump is on board with gun control.

According to the Washington Examiner, the overall number of background checks recorded in the National Instant Criminal Background Check System surged 15.5%. Those numbers were courtesy of the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF). That figure includes background checks done for security, concealed carry permits, and gun sales and was the highest August number ever recorded.

Adjusted for sales, the NSSF industry group said that August FBI background checks for sales surged 15.2% over August 2018. The adjusted August number was second only to August 2016 during the heated presidential election. It’s become evident that gun control authoritarians are the best gun salespeople on the planet.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And isn't it painfully ironic, that so many shootings in this country happen in "gun free" zones, where the good people, armed, trained, and responsible gun owners, who could potentially stop a massacre, are forbidden to do just that?!?

More Americans Questioning Official 9/11 Story As New Evidence Contradicts Official Narrative

Authored by Whitney Webb via MintPressNews.com,

Today the event that defined the United States’ foreign policy in the 21st century, and heralded the destruction of whole countries, turns 18. The events of September 11, 2001 remains etched into the memories of Americans and many others, as a collective tragedy that brought Americans together and brought as well a general resolve among them that those responsible be brought to justice.

While the events of that day did unite Americans in these ways for a time, the different trajectories of the official relative to the independent investigations into the September 11 attacks have often led to division in the years since 2001, with vicious attacks or outright dismissal being levied against the latter.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

We do not need new investigations; we know precisely what happened on 9/11, and who the real criminals and tyrants were, to bring about this horrific spectacle of death and destruction into being.

This event allowed the US to slide ever further into a dictatorship from which it may never recover, and was manipulated by unscrupulous US politicians and elements of overseas countries, who wanted to see this happen, as a premise for war against both Afghanistan and Iraq.

And unless and until those truly responsible for this heinous crime are charged, tried, and convicted for their crimes against both humanity, and the true democratic republic of the United States of America, there will never be closure here.

But do not hold your breath; the monied, particularly those career criminals ensconced in the higher echelons of the US Deep State and Military Industrial Complex, rarely eat their own.

EU Accused Of Fascism After "Protecting Our European Way Of Life" Commissioner Announced

The creation of a UN "Commissioner for Protecting our European Way of Life" has sparked outrage across Europe, after the new role which will oversee immigration policy was announced by incoming EU commission president Ursula von der Leyen.

The new position, to be filled by Greece's EU commissioner, Margaritis Schinas, was unveiled along with the rest of von der Leyen's new cabinet at a Tuesday press conference in Brussels.

While Von der Leyen said the new Commission cabinet was "as diverse as Europe is," critics have noted that all of its members are white, while calling the new commissioner position "fascist," according to The Independent - which couldn't find a single person in support of the new role for a quote.

"This looks like the portfolio to fight back against the rise of the fascists, but only by adopting their divisive rhetoric around ‘strong borders’," British Green MEP Molly Scott Cato told The Independent.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I'm terribly sorry, but the 21st century people displaced in the Middle East, have been displaced by wars, coupled with a searing lack of economic opportunities in their own countries.

The first intelligent thing to do is stop all the wars of conquest in which the US government is utterly, and painfully, complicit. If people feel they can thrive at home, and do not feel that they, or their families are threatened, they will most likely stay in their home countries.

Why is the concept of "diversity and personal excellence" so hard for the EU to grasp?!? Why have they not developed a "merit system", as Australia has adopted, which would insure that Europe gets "the best of the best", coupled those new citizens having a genuine desire to embrace their adoptive country's laws and cultural norms?!?

Folks, this isn't rocket science; this is how you build countries, and vet immigrants in the 21st century, period, end of discussion.

NY FIRE COMMISSIONERS DEMAND NEW 9/11 PROBE, CITING "OVERWHELMING EVIDENCE OF PRE-PLANTED EXPLOSIVES"

9/11 After 18 Years

Paul Craig Roberts

I would appreciate hearing from readers whether they have come across a report in the print, TV, or NPR media of the highly professional four-year investigation of WTC Building 7’s demise. The international team of civil engineers concluded that the official story of Building 7’s destruction is entirely false. I reported their findings here: https://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2019/09/04/the-official-story-of-the-...

On the basis of the known evidence, knowledgeable and informed people have concluded that 9/11 was an inside job organized by Vice President Dick Cheney, his stable of neoconservatives, and Israel for the purpose of reconstructing the Middle East in Israel’s interest and enriching the US military/security complex in the process.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I hear you, Paul; the 9/11 report was simply a piece of politically concocted codswallop, which all Americans and the world were compelled to swallow whole.

I, for one, didn't swallow; therefore, the possibility that I can ever trust the Federal government with anything.... is dim to the point of non-existent.

Netanyahu has found another ‘secret’ Iranian nuclear facility, shows pictures as proof

As the world seeks to defuse tensions between the US and Iran, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has reappeared with fresh and controversial claims of “secret” Iranian nuclear activity, and he had visual materials to help.

In a brief press conference on Monday, Netanyahu claimed that Israel has discovered a secret Iranian “nuclear weapons development site” at Abadeh, south of the city of Isfahan. The Iranians “destroyed” the site, however, upon learning that Israel knew about it, Netanyahu said.

Leaks, Fake News, and Hidden Agendas

By Jon Rappoport

Thousands of articles have been written about the so-called Russian hack of the US election. The term “Russian hack” suggests the Russkies actually found a way to subvert the results of voting machines.

But of course, no convincing evidence has been presented to support such a charge. In fact, when you drill down a few inches below the surface, you find this charge instead: Russia hacked into email accounts and scooped up Hillary, DNC, and Podesta emails, and passed them to WikiLeaks, who then published them.

But no chain of evidence supporting THAT claim has been presented to the public, either. Even assuming the assertion is true, an important factor is intentionally being ignored: THE CONTENT OF THOSE LEAKED EMAILS. In other words, if making all this content publicly available cost Hillary the election, and if no one is seriously questioning the authenticity of the emails, then THE TRUTH undermined Hillary...

We refuse to be a ‘normal country’ if it means US-style bombings & invasions, Moscow tells Pentagon

It’s better not to be a “more normal country” if that means being as prone to invasions and coups as the United States, top Russian ministers have said, firing back at bizarre remarks by a new Pentagon chief.
It would be “great” if the West “could get Russia to behave like a more normal country,” Mark Esper, the newly appointed defense secretary, was reported to have claimed while visiting Paris this week.

That remark did not go down well with Moscow, however.

“If he said so, he called upon us to act as a normal country [as such] and not like the United States,” Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov told a press briefing in the Russian capital, where he and Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu had a face-to-face meeting with French counterparts.

POLICE TELL VICTIM SHE DESERVED IT AFTER OFFICER CAUGHT ON VIDEO PUBLICLY GROPING HER

SOURCE: JACK BURNS @ THE FREE THOUGHT PROJECT
(Support Free Thought) - Oklahoma City, OK — An Oklahoma County jail officer is being accused of making unwanted advances towards women at a gas station just down the street from where he works as a detention officer. Backing up these accusations is the surveillance video which captured the alleged assault.

Because the accusation is of a sexual nature, the victim is not being identified at the moment, nor is the officer. But the victim is speaking out to reporters at the same time decrying how the police department handled the situation. She says when she attempted to file a police report and have the jailer charged with sex crimes for allegedly groping her, the police blamed her saying she must have wanted him to come on to her.

Webmaster's Commentary:

SOURCE: ALETHO NEWS

Denmark is recognized as one of the most socially and economically developed countries in the world, which enjoys a high standard of living as well as high metrics in national performance, protection of civil liberties, and the lowest perceived level of corruption in the world, has announced that it will be boosting military contributions to missions around the world, including joining the United States in its illegal and unauthorized deployment in northeastern Syria.

The sovereign and proud nation of Syria has neither invited nor does it accept any foreign invaders on its land and has repeatedly demanded that all foreign forces leave on their own before they are forced out. Syria is highly committed to liberating every inch of its land from terrorist control whether that be domestic or foreign, and protecting its territorial integrity.

In the latest legal push that could ultimately result in the break-up of one of the world's largest tech firms, a bipartisan group of more than 40 state attorneys general, led by Texas's Ken Paxton, will unveil a sweeping anti-trust investigation against Google parent Alphabet Inc.

The anti-trust investigation, which was previewed late last week in a leak to the Wall Street Journal, aims to hold Alphabet accountable for the extreme concentration in the US technology industry. Specifically, the AG's case will focus on Google's influence in search and the digital advertising market, and whether the Silicon Valley giant's overweening influence harms rivals and consumers.

PAM ANDERSON, MEGHAN MCCAIN, AND WAR CRIMES

SOURCE: KURTNIMMO.BLOG

Thanks to “public” education (indoctrination) and the corporate media, far too few Americans understand the founders designed a constitutional republic. Instead, we’re told America is a “democracy”—the ideal of mob rule—and we all have a role to play in deciding who will lead the nation.

This is, of course, nonsense. We are spectators in the bleachers of the three-ring circus of national elections. The state is run by and for the sake of the financial class and transnational corporations. The election of handpicked yesmen (and women) every four and eight years is routinely portrayed as the will of the people.

This is why Donald Trump is a big problem—he went around the political class and made grandiose promises (deep-sixed after the election) and this is why so many Americans voted for him and why the state and its professional careerist class of politicians hate him and want him impeached, even dead.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The pattern, here, has been crystal clear and painfully obvious; destabilize a government not to the US government's liking; replace that government with one that is to the US government's liking; invite corporations the US government likes (and from whom top US political leaders get overt, and covert support for their campaigns); allow those corporations to expropriate resources to which they, nor the US government ,have any moral right; and sell those resources only in American dollars.

Wash; rinse; repeat. I mean, folks, could this be any simpler?!?

Julian Assange was simply "the messenger", about the absolute, metastasizing, core-deep rot at the center of the bowels of power in this government, which is why so many people in power hate him, and want to see him dead.

That said, I do not believe that the deep state in this country will "Epsteinize" him; perhaps, as most likely happened with Jack Ruby, Assange may find himself fighting an "incurable disease", and he will die right before any legal process can begin.

And if you are shaking you head that this could not be possible, kindly read the following: Biological Warfare: Is it possible to weaponize cancer? 3 Answers

The article goes on to state: 'Luckily for us, cells that don't play by the rules as per the above can be killed off by natural killer (NK) cells, which can easily lyse (under normal conditions, anyway) cells lacking MHC proteins.

However- and this is where the potential for weaponization in humans comes in- recent research seems to indicate that NK cells can't just lyse something that doesn't display MHC proteins- they also need stimulation from at least one of a wide variety of surface ligands. If someone was able to make a cancer cell line that selectively knocked out both components in the MHC display system and a wide variety of these NK-activating ligands, that cancer cell line would probably be invulnerable to a human immune system.

Of course, you'd still have to go around injecting people with these cells, which is why it'd make for an awful weapon of mass destruction.'

But... what if you only needed a few dead, and to make the origins of their disease... untraceable?!? Please be aware that US alphabet soup agencies are already light years ahead of other civilian research in areas like this.

NETANYAHU ACCUSES IRAN OF SECRET NUCLEAR WEAPONS SITE

SOURCE: ALJAZEERA.COM
Iran was clandestinely developing nuclear weapons but destroyed a secret site after Israel discovered it, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu alleged on Monday.

Tehran had been developing atomic arms at a facility in Abadeh, south of Iranian city of Isfahan, said Netanyahu. It was the first time the prime minister identified the site after publicly accusing Iran of building a bomb last year while citing a trove of Iranian documents allegedly stolen by Israeli agents from an Iranian warehouse.

"In this site, Iran conducted experiments to develop nuclear weapons," Netanyahu said, adding after Israeli intelligence found out about it, "they destroyed the site. They just wiped it out".

The prime minister did not provide further details on the alleged experiments, or say when they purportedly were held.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mr. Prime Minister Netanyahu, a word, please.

You have been consistently tossing out absolutely wildly unsubstantiated claims over the past several years, at every forum you could find, in which you have accused Iran, over and over, of having secret nuclear weapons labs.

So please, let the IAEA do its job, and it will; period, end of discussion.

I, and the world, understand that it is precisely 7 days from now, when Israel will have its next General Election, with every seat in the Knesset up for grabs; and this is not lost on people who understand that, due to corruption charges and other issues, you are fighting for your political life, during this period.

And if, sir, you and the IDF are planning any kind of a decap strike against Tehran, to make you look absolutely "war-centric" to the Israeli electorate, I would strongly caution you all to not do this.

I don't know if you, or any of your advisors happened to read the following story, but think you, and your advisors, need to perhaps take another look at it, so I am doing you the courtesy of re-posting: Iran won't be alone, if the US attacks,Russian official says

A US/Israeli decap strike on Iran, with Russia coming in on Iran's side?!?

Sir, I certainly hope that I am not the only one on this planet who cannot sleep at night, considering how such a potential scenario, conveniently right before the Israeli elections, might well unfold.

The other possibility, which would absolutely stun the world, is that you and Iran's Hasan Rouhani, cobble together a peace, trade, and cooperation treaty, forestalling a war between Israel and Iran; of course, that will only happen when pigs discover they can fly, because Israel's government has become superb at manipulating its "fear dynamic" against their own people, so that everything, from killing an unarmed Palestinian child, to creating World War III,can always be justified by that government.

POWER OUTAGE FOR FEDERAL COURT COMPUTER SYSTEM SCREWS UP THREE MONTHS WORTH OF JOB APPLICATIONS?!?

SOURCE: TECH DIRT
For years, we've talked about what a total joke the federal courts' PACER system is. That's the computer system the federal courts use for accessing court documents. It acts like it was designed in about 1998 and hasn't been touched since (and even when it was designed, it wasn't designed well). But that's not the only fucked up computer system that the federal courts use. A few years back when I was an expert witness in a federal case, I had to make use of a different US court website just to get paid by the government -- and while it's been a few years, I still remember that it required you to use Internet Explorer. Internet Explorer! It had lots of other issues as well.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

the more I see the US lose its technological edge over other countries, the more I think of Terry Gilliam's masterpiece film, "Brazil".

It is one of the most brilliant, dystopian, and prophetic films I have ever seen, regarding the morphing of the American Dream... into the American Nightmare of surveillance, complete suppression of all civil liberties; wealth inequality, and a complete destruction of all the things our Founding Fathers (and the women who loved them) held dear.

    SAUDI ENERGY MINISTER CONFIRMS PLAN TO ENRICH URANIUM 

SOURCE: ZEROHEDGE
Among the most underreported but explosive stories of the past six months has been growing signs of Saudi Arabia's nuclear ambitions. But now there are new questions over whether the kingdom's future planned two nuclear power reactors will be limited to purely energy-related and peaceful purposes.

On Monday the kingdom's nuclear energy minister said Saudi Arabia wants to enrich uranium for its nuclear power program, Reuters reports — an announcement likely to hinder talks with Washington over American companies' potential help in establishing its atomic energy program.

"The world’s top oil exporter says it wants to use nuclear power to diversify its energy mix, but enrichment also opens up the possibility of military uses of uranium," Reuters noted.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Golly Gee, Whillakers!!! What could POSSIBLY go wrong with that!

JUST what the US government desperately (doesn't) need more of right now; yet another Middle Eastern despotic autocracy, in the possession of nuclear weapons!! To potentially use against whom, I wonder?!?

Are the Saudis going to sign the NNPT before they begin this development?!? I sure as hell wouldn't hold my breath on that one. Will they allow IAEA specialists to monitor their work in this direction?!? Again, I would not hold my breath on it.

And even though toward the end of this March, President Trump authorized a secret nuclear power project for Saudi Arabia, US Approves Secret Nuclear Power Deal for Saudi Arabia apparently, it was too little, too late, because an already nuclear-armed Pakistan was in serious dialogue with the Saudis about assisting the Saudis with their nascent nuclear program.

We have a story, datelined March of this year, which sheds some light on this possibility:

How Cash-Strapped Pakistan could get Sucked into Saudi/Iran Rivalry

This article goes on to state:

'Saudi Arabia announced $20 billion in infrastructure and energy investments for the cash-strapped country of 200 million, which is currently on the brink of financial crisis.

Many of the projects are located in Pakistan’s impoverished and restive Balochistan region, which lies along the 565-mile border with Saudi arch-rival Iran.'

Pakistan certainly had the means, the motive, and opportunity here to create a nuclear armed nation in Saudi Arabia.

I sense that President Trump absolutely did not see this coming, and has been totally blindsided by Saudi Arabia's desire for both nuclear energy, and a nuclear bomb; I mean, the Butcher of Yemen, AKA Prince Salman, is one of Trump's BBFs in the Middle East, (along with the Israeli Butcher of Gaza, Prime Minister Netanyahu), right?!?

Mr. President, I am sorry, but with the US government's giving so much military and monetary aid to Israel when it is illegal, under both the Symington Amendment and The Mann act (requiring that every nuclear nation become a signatory to the NNPT, and have their nuclear sites inspected, as has Iran), demonstrates to the world, incontrovertibly, that US foreign policy in the Middle East, has made an absolute, necrotic hash of their nuclear proliferation doctrine.

This... is a flustercluck, writ large, Mr. President.

I think that the American people have the right to know, just how you intend on "fixing" this, sir; because it appears to me that the nuclear "Genie" has well and truly left the bottle, and cannot be convinced to return.

WaPo’s Desperate ‘Do Something’ Demand Inadvertently Shows Futility of ‘Gun Control’

Despite such uneven playing fields, here’s the thing to keep in mind: No matter what oath-breaking political parasites do, a critical mass of committed gun owners will not surrender their guns and there aren’t enough enforcers to make it happen. That both enrages and scares the hell out of those who would control all, but it also shows that the Second Amendment is still working as intended, even when apparently dormant. Just as arms in private hands discourage individual predators from attacking, so too does that work on a societal scale.

State AGs Unveil Sweeping Antitrust Probe Against Google On Steps Of The Supreme Court

By Tyler Durden

In the latest legal push that could ultimately result in the break-up of one of the world’s largest tech firms, a bipartisan group of more than 40 state attorneys general, led by Texas’s Ken Paxton, will unveil a sweeping antitrust investigation against Google parent, Alphabet Inc.

The antitrust investigation, which was previewed late last week in a leak to the Wall Street Journal, aims to hold Alphabet accountable for the extreme concentration in the US technology industry. Specifically, the AG’s case will focus on Google’s influence in search and the digital advertising market, and whether the Silicon Valley giant’s overarching influence harms rivals and consumers...

US faces the return of LEPROSY: Doctor warns it is 'only a matter of time' before it appears among burgeoning homeless

A leprosy outbreak could soon hit homeless populations in the US, a doctor has warned.

Dr Marc Siegel, of New York University's Langone Health, fears it is just a 'matter of time' before the bacterial disease strikes.

He pointed to Los Angeles County as being particularly at risk, with almost 60,000 people sleeping rough in the area.

Although leprosy is not particularly contagious, the combination of poor hygiene, a lack of shelter and inaccessible medical treatment among the homeless creates a 'perfect cauldron' for the disease, Dr Siegel said.

Left untreated, the infection can cause blindness or permanent disability - a 'sure recipe for instant public panic'.
Central and South America have more than 20,000 new incidences a year, with 'sporadic cases continuing to be brought across our southern border undetected', he added.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When anyone with this disease comes into this country illegally, because they have not gone through a thorough health screening, to determine whether or not they are healthy enough to be permitted to live here, this disease scourge has nothing stopping it from infecting the general US population.

That... is simply fact.

Netanyahu Fighting for His Political Life

New elections were called after Netanyahu failed to cobble together enough support for reelection as prime minister. He remains interim PM.

On September 17, Israelis go to the polls again to elect a prime minister and Knesset members.

Ten parties are competing for seats. Polls show Netanyahu-led Likud and Benny Gantz/Yair Lapid’s Blue and White party are each projected to win 31 of 120 Knesset seats, according to polls.

Throughout Jewish state history, Israeli coalitions governed, no single party ever winning a majority on its own.

Today extremist right-wing parties dominate Israel’s political landscape, reflecting hardline rule, democracy pure fantasy as in the West.

Netanyahu is desperate to retain power ahead of an October pre-indictment hearing on bribery, fraud, and breach of trust charges, strong evidence against him.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder; Netanyahu has exactly 8 days in which to create some kind of war which might, under some circumstances, possibly postpone the elections until he feels he has a "safe majority" of coalitions which will protect him, or create an all-out war against Gaza, Iran, and Lebanon, hoping he looks "butch enough" to win the next elections.

However, the Israeli price in blood and money spent for such operations, looks terribly steep, from where I sit; I would respectfully and sincerely caution Prime Minister Netanyahu not take this road. Your people are emotionally exhausted by the steady diet of fear and anger, when there are so many other options which could be pursued, in the name of peace, and prosperity, for both Israel, and all other neighboring countries in the region.

Erdogan ramps up war talk as Turkey pushes for nuclear weapons after Putin missile row

TAYYIP ERDOGAN claimed he "will not accept" the status quo and believes Turkey should have nuclear weapons after accusing Donald Trump, NATO and Israel of hypocrisy over their outcry at missiles recently delivered to Turkey from Russia.

The Turkish President said it was unacceptable that nations boasting missiles of their own are attempting to restrict Turkey's military operations. Erdogan said: "Some nations have missiles with nuclear warheads — not just one or two. But (they say) I should not have missiles with nuclear warheads. I don't accept this. "There is is almost no developed country in the world that does not have nuclear warheads."

Turkey's pro-government newspaper, Sabah, added fuel to the fire by declaring: "We are carrying out work for nuclear missiles."

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was also involved in Erdogan's outburst, claiming that the Middle Eastern state tries to intimidate with its own weapons.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

OK, I really don't like this guy, because he refuses to be President of ALL of Turkey's people (like its Christians and its Kurds), and consistently fails to come up with peaceful political ways with which to integrate these communities.

But when Edrogan speaks about Israel's nuclear weapons, being used to "scare" its regional neighbors, he is absolutely speaking the truth.

Hundreds Of Russian Troops Deploy To Idlib In Case Ceasefire Collapses: Report

Via AlmasdarNews.com

Hundreds of Russian troops are being sent to the Idlib Governorate in northern Syria, the Russian publication Lenta.Ru reported this weekend.

According to the publication, hundreds of Russian troops belonging to the Yevgeny Prigoshin private military contractors were deployed to the Idlib Governorate, despite a pause in offensive operations.

“The plan is for groups of 50 people each, with the support of Russian aviation, to take part in street battles necessary to clear the populated city from thousands of militants associated with Al-Qaeda (banned in Russia),” Lenta.Ru reported.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The one thing which concerns me here,is that private mercs are not, generally, held to the same moral standards as are soldiers, meaning there are things these people are willing - and able - to do, which no Russian military would very think of doing.

IF the jihadis here think that a final bloody battle will find them the winners of such a conflict in Idlib, they had really, honestly, had better think again.

Putin and Zelensky discuss future contact, settling conflict in Ukraine – Kremlin

Russia’s Vladimir Putin and Ukraine's Volodymyr Zelensky had phone talks after the landmark prisoner swap between the two countries, discussing the civil conflict in eastern Ukraine and measures to settle it, the Kremlin said.
The two presidents stressed the humanitarian aspect of the swap that affected 35 people from each side during the phone conversation late Saturday night.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Fingers crossed that neither man wants to see a stoking of old wounds, from the Ukrainian Poroshenko period, and a new relationship in which each nation honors the other, and that a responsible, equitable peace can be brokered here.

Hezbollah Shoots Down Israeli Surveillance Drone Over South Lebanon

Two weeks after the first significant Israel-Hezbollah exchange of fire since the 2006 war, Hezbollah announced Monday it has downed another Israeli drone in southern Lebanon, The Washington Post reports.

A Hezbollah media statement said the group had "confronted" the Israel drone with "appropriate weapons" near the southern town of Ramiyeh, indicating the small drone was shot down. The paramilitary group now has the drone in its possession.

However, the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) denied its surveillance drone was shot down, only saying it had crashed in the pre-dawn hours of Monday morning. The IDF affirmed it had been conducting a reconnaissance mission in the area.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It appears that Hezbollah is gaining quite a large degree of sophistication in terms of taking out Israeli drones; one has to wonder just what Israel's next move here will be, because they have always stated that their military superiority over Hezbollah cannot be overcome.

It appears that Hezbollah... has proven Israel wrong.

Purdue Pharma Expected To File Bankruptcy Amid Settlement Negotiations "Hitting An Impasse"

The makers of Oxycontin, Purdue Pharma, are now expected to file for bankruptcy after settlement talks regarding the nation's opioid crisis have "hit an impasse", according to ABC News.

This impasse puts Purdue's federal trial over the opioid epidemic on track to start next month and sets the stage for significant legal drama involving state and local governments.

Purdue had been working for months to try and avoid trial by determining the company's responsibility for the crisis, which has cost over 400,000 Americans their lives. But an email from the attorneys general of Tennessee and North Carolina revealed that Purdue and the Sackler family had rejected two offers from the states over how payments would be handled as a result of a settlement.

Tennessee Attorney General Herbert Slatery and North Carolina Attorney General Josh Stein wrote in their message:

Students Prevented From Attending UK School Because They Refuse To Wear "Gender Neutral" Uniforms

Female students at a school in the UK were prevented by officials and police from attending class because they refused to comply with a new “gender neutral” uniform policy.

Around 100 students protested outside the gates of Priory School in Lewes in response to a letter sent at the end of the summer advising they would be mandated to wear trousers at all times.

The school claimed that the policy change was put in place to “address inequality,” and be “inclusive,” but students and parents were outraged.

@PaulEmbery
Hats off to the girls at a Sussex secondary school who are refusing to comply with new rules requiring them to wear 'gender neutral' uniforms. The gates were closed on them because - shock, horror - they want to continue wearing skirts! All power to them!

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This madness has utterly nothing to do with true education (critical thinking, math, and literacy) and everything to do with indoctrination; those who signed off on this program, should be summarily fired, and in short order, period, end of discussion.

Mueller Helped Saudis Cover Up Involvement In 9/11 Attacks: Lawsuit

Robert Mueller - pitched as an incorruptible beacon of justice when he was tasked with (unsuccessfully) hunting down ties between Donald Trump and Russia - was nothing more than a hatchet man for the deep state, who participated in a coverup of Saudi Arabia's role in 9/11 according to a new report by the New York Post's Paul Sperry - citing former FBI investigators and a new lawsuit by 9/11 victims.

According to Sperry, Mueller stonewalled after FBI agents discovered evidence of "multiple, systemic efforts by the Saudi government to assist the hijackers in the lead-up to the 9/11 attacks," while the former FBI director allegedly "covered up evidence pointing back to the Saudi Embassy and Riyadh — and may have even misled Congress about what he knew."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Color me completely unsurprised by these revelations.

This man is absolutely a product, and a tool, of the viciously vile, and thoroughly corrupted, US Deep State, which works to accomplish its own agendas, and not those of the American People.

The planning and execution of 9/11 took a vast army of some of the highest members of the American government at the time; should this lawsuit be allowed to move forward (and I am not holding my breath on this), names will be named at a level of government complicity which may shock many Americans, who still believe that the only things that the US government wants to happen, are all for our good; in the case of the aftermath of 9/11, nothing could have been further from the truth than that sentiment.
