Transgender shooter, who complained of feeling 'alienated' and 'wanting to pick a fight', before opening fire on Rite Aid distribution center - killing three co-workers before committing suicide

Coley told the Baltimore Sun Moseley had come out to her family as transgender in December 2016 and wanted to begin hormone therapy.

At present, it is not known if she did commence hormone therapy, or if Moseley, known to friends as 'Sno', used male or female pronouns.

Coley and Moseley were intending to create a documentary on Moseley's life before she died, based off a manuscript the Rite Aid worker had written.

Other friends paid tribute to her on social media, claiming she had been consumed by mental illness and had reached out for help multiple times before shooting at her colleagues.

MERCENARIES LEADING ASSAULT ON YEMEN PORT CITY WERE TRAINED BY IDF IN ISRAEL

According to U.S. officials close to the House Intelligence Committee with knowledge of the operation, hundreds of mercenaries from various nationalities that fight on behalf of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in Yemen had recently received “instance combat training” at training camps in the Negev desert that were created through a secret agreement was reached between the UAE and Israel. Mercenaries at the camp were trained under the “personal supervision” of the Israel Defense Forces (IDF).

CHINA’S CHILLING ‘SOCIAL CREDIT SYSTEM’ IS STRAIGHT OUT OF DYSTOPIAN SCI-FI, AND IT’S ALREADY SWITCHED ON

China’s “Social Credit System” – which is expected to be fully operational by 2020 – doesn’t just monitor the nation’s almost 1.4 billion citizens. It’s also designed to control and coerce them, in a gigantic social engineering experiment that some have called the “gamification of trust”.

Kavanaugh accuser tied to Big Pharma abortion pill maker

Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford, who claims — without any evidence — that Kavanaugh inappropriately touched her at a drunken party while in high school, turns out to have ties to an abortion pill pharmaceutical company called Corcept Therapeutics. This discovery brings to light an obvious conflict of interest in Blasey’s story, revealing that she works for a pharmaceutical company that manufacturers an abortion pill drug, whose profits could be strongly impacted by future Supreme Court decisions on abortion rights.

The FBI Could Look Into Allegations Against Kavanaugh. Trump Doesn't Want It To.

WASHINGTON ? President Donald Trump claims that investigating the sexual assault allegation levied against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh isn’t really the FBI’s “thing.” It could be if he wanted the bureau to look into it.
Christine Blasey Ford, a clinical psychology professor living in California who is professionally known as Christine Blasey, says a “stumbling drunk” Kavanaughpinned her to a bed, groped her over her clothes and covered her mouth with his hand at a party in the suburbs of D.C. in the early 1980s, when they were both teenagers. Kavanaugh has denied the allegation, and the Senate Judiciary Committee has proposed a public hearing from both parties on Monday.

Female Pedophiles ~ The BIG List Documentary {Part 1}

“Over the past four decades our corrupt and deceitful corporate-owned mainstream media, in cooperation with feminists and women's groups, have very effectively conditioned the public with propaganda with respect to how we view men. The only women who know the truth about female sexual predators are the mothers of the male children who have been sexually molested by a female predator. Remember that for every video clip you see about a female committing a sex related crime, there's a hundred news articles for which a video of a female predator was never made. This documentary dispels the belief that only men are capable of sexual exploitation of children”. (3.00 - 3.48)

Generation being born now is the last to be free – Assange in last interview before blackout (VIDEO)

Before his links to the world was cut by his Ecuadorian hosts, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange gave an interview on how technological advances are changing humankind. He said global surveillance will soon be totally unavoidable.
The interview was provided to RT by organizers of the World Ethical Data Forum in Barcelona. Assange, who is currently stranded in the Ecuadorean embassy in London with no outside communication except with his legal team, has a pretty grim outlook on where humanity is going. He says it will soon be impossible for any human being to not be included into global databases collected by governments and state-like entities.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Pretty powerful predictions; and unfortunately, it looks like they about to turn true.

US Sends Ships to South China Sea ‘to Create Trouble’ - Chinese Envoy

China’s chief envoy in London accused “some big countries outside the region” of coming “all the way to the South China Sea to create trouble,” where China claims large expanses of sea and atolls.

Ambassador of China to the United Kingdom Liu Xiaoming told the annual Induction Programme for Commonwealth Diplomats organised by the Commonwealth Secretariat Wednesday that regional powers had made major strides toward resolving tensions in the South China Sea by themselves.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Without naming names, this was a pretty conspicuous hit at the US government.

Republicans threaten to subpoena Nellie Ohr

Conservative House Republicans are calling on their colleagues to subpoena Nellie Ohr, the wife of Justice Department official Bruce Ohr, after a deal fell apart this week that would have led to her voluntary testimony.

“Now that Nellie Ohr is not coming in it is time to subpoena her and get her in as soon as possible,” Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) said in an interview with The Hill.

He called it “unfortunate” that Ohr would not come in as planned on Friday for a deposition.

A Republican House Judiciary Committee aide separately told The Hill that the committee will use its subpoena power to try to compel Ohr to testify if she does not agree to do so voluntarily.

It’s unclear why the deal fell apart to have Ohr interviewed behind closed doors with the House Judiciary and House Oversight and Government Reform committees.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A Subpoena served upon this lady would be a good thing right now.

After 27 Years, Golf Drawings Helped Clear a Convict of Murder

It hasn't been easy for Dixon, who was victimized by a broken criminal justice system at seemingly every turn. It took a golf magazine, a group of undergraduate students, and years of proclaiming his innocence for a judge to finally listen, even though the man who actually committed the murder has confessed multiple times over the years. Here's how it all unfolded:

1929 Crash Remembered, 20 Sept 2018

But who here can remember 1929?

Not I, but I was a little kid who paid attention.

Wandering into a tea at my grandmother's, one of the silver-haired ladies ordained that I come sit by her, and listen.

Old money was sipping Earl Grey and remembering not just 1929 but also 1933 and the govt-violation of safety deposit boxes to confiscate citizen gold, and even jewelry.

They described suicides leaping out of windows and going splat, fortunes lost overnight, factories, farms, homes called in as bank collateral.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Now would be a good time for Americans to remember who got hurt during this economic tsunami, and why; we are headed for another cyclical "dip" at any moment, probably aggravated by Central Banks' "planning", which has repeatedly gone catastrophically wrong.

EURASIAHEADLINE NEWSCONFIRMED REPORT: Russian Navy Has Closed The Eastern Mediterranean

Updated Sept 20, 2018 @ 18: 35 – We Previously had this articled titled “TRUE? Unconfirmed report ”Russian Navy has Closed the Eastern Mediterranean” (MAP)” We then wrote in the first line: “FRN is still looking for further confirmation of the following story.”

RevContent InArticle SOLO
In response to the what Putin has called a ‘tragic incident’ that caused the death of the crew of the radio reconnaissance aircraft and the IL-20 VKS RF warhead, Rusvesna reports that the Russian military has made a major move.

Effective September 19th, the Russian Federation has announced the closure of a large area of ??the eastern Mediterranean for the movement of military aircraft and ships until the 26th of September.

According to the official version, this step is justified by the beginning of unscheduled maneuvers of the navy and aviation off the coast of Syria.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

My question, since what Russia has essentially done, is to declare a "no fly" zone over the Eastern Mediterranean, for Russian naval drills, will the US comply, or attack before the 26th of this month in their own "Freedom of Navigation" drills?!?

Unfortunately, if I were a betting person, I would think the latter, rather than the former outcome, is more possible here.

The shooting comes less than a year after another workplace shooting less than 10 miles away.

Orban's Moscow Visit A Middle Finger To EU After Last Week's Humiliation

The “salon des refusés” of political dissidents in the EU is getting bigger by the day. Less than a week after his government was condemned in a vote in the European parliament, Orban is in Moscow for talks about energy with Putin. His visit to Russia is the political equivalent of giving the EU the finger following last week’s humiliation.

Orban is not alone. In his battle with the EU over immigration and the rule of law, he is supported by Poland and the Czech Republic. Poland, which is also facing an Article 7 procedure against it by the European Commission, has vowed to protect Hungary, just as Hungary has vowed to protect Poland. So there is no way that the voting rights of either country can be removed, since the ultimate vote to do so requires unanimity. Orban also recently received the support of Czech Prime Minister Andrej Babis and of the Italian Minister of the Interior, Matteo Salvini.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It looks as though the EU is on the brink of imploding, due to massive, unchecked immigration, and the negative consequences thereof.

Iran Sanctions Are Damaging The Dollar

Painful sanctions on Iran have demonstrated the long reach of the U.S. Treasury, forcing much of the globe to fall in line and cut oil imports from Iran despite widespread disagreement over the policy. Yet, we are only in the first few chapters of what may ultimately be a long story that ends with the erosion of the power of the U.S. dollar.

The role of the greenback in the international financial system is the reason why the U.S. can prevent much of the world from buying oil from Iran. Oil is traded in dollars, and so much of international commerce is based in dollars. In fact, as much as 88 percent of all foreign exchange trades involve the greenback.

Moreover, multinational companies inevitably have some commercial ties to the U.S., so when faced with the choice of business with Iran or losing access to the U.S. financial system and the American market, the choice is an easy one.

Turkish Lira Swings Violently As Erdogan's Economic Plan Spooks Traders

The Turkish lira swung violently, rising to session highs then slumping 1.5% after Turkey presented its medium term economic plan, which together with last week's massive 625bps rate hike was supposed to restore investor confidence in the country's struggling economy.

The Turkish Lira first rose 1.9% during the speech delivered by Turkey's finance minister Berat Albayrak in which he revealed targets for growth and inflation that signaled a somewhat realistic assessment of the economy and its outlook, including a current account deficit that was forecast at 3.3% for 2019, a number seen as realistic and a far-cry from some of the wild estimates recently suggested by analysts.

Third Veritas Video Reveals Socialist GAO Employee Admitting "I Break Rules Every Day"

The third installment of Project Veritas' undercover series on socialists within government features an auditor for the Government Accountability Office (GAO) admitting to breaking rules "every day" in order to conduct business for the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA).

The first two undercover videos in the series revealed a DSA member within the State Department who is "engaged in radical socialist political activity on the taxpayer's dime," and a DOJ employee pursuing the same goals - who said there is "a lot of talk about how we can, like, resist from the inside."

The DOJ is investigating.

Thursday's video features Natarajan Subramanian - a GAO accountant and self-proclaimed Communist who admits to actively working for the DSA.

“No one knows I spent six hours yesterday doing social media for DSA.” -Natarajan Subramanian

He adds: "Do I care more about having this job, or do I care more about the [DSA] movement, and I was like… obviously the movement."

US Places 33 Alleged Russian Spies And Military Officials On Sanctions Blacklist

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has authorized the addition of 33 alleged Russian spies, defense and intelligence officials to the US sanctions list. The blacklisting took place following an executive order from President Trump authorizing Steven Mnuchin, in consultation with Pompeo, to employ all powers granted to the President "by IEEPA and certain CATSAA sections" for implementation of certain sanctions with respect to Russia.

A White House official said the new measures were aimed at "imposing costs on Russia in response to its malign activities."

Washington has also imposed new sanctions on a Chinese military unit over the purchase of Russian jets and missiles.The Chinese sanctions are to come into effect immediately.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The only thing these sanctions seem to have actually accomplished, is to strengthen the position of the ruble, and made it more self sufficient, and more attractive to investors.

One could almost say that this practice has rather backfired for DC in a spectacular manner.

School District To Begin Randomly Drug-Testing High School Students

While some parents support the new policy and hope it will discourage students from bringing drugs to school, others, like Lance Leach, feel it is too invasive.

“There has to be a reasoning, and you have to talk to a parent beforehand,” he said.

“Like suspicious behavior or they got caught doing something, then maybe, but not just random drug testing.“

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why does this make me feel as though this procedure is part of the "new normal" to which students will be subjected by teachers, military superiors, and corporate minders to whom they will one day have to report?!?

FBI Had "Two Sets Of Records" On Trump Investigation; Comey, McCabe Implicated: Carter

Journalist Sara Carter told Sean Hannity during his Wednesday radio show that the FBI has two sets of records in the Russia investigation, and that "certain people above Peter Strzok and above Lisa Page" were aware of it - implicating former FBI Director James Comey and his #2, Andrew McCabe.

Hannity: Sara, I’m hearing it gets worse than this–that there is potentially out there–if you will, two sets of record among the upper echelon of the FBI–one that was real one that was made for appearances. Is there any truth to this?

Carter: Absolutely, Sean. With the number of sources that I have been speaking with as well as some others that there is evidence indicating that the FBI had separate sets of books.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Color me completely unsurprised at this revelation.

Idlib: Lull Before the Hurricane. New US Military Doctrine for Intervention in Syria

Without fanfare the US has just reformulated its position to create the conditions for it to launch devastating strikes on Syria no longer just on the pretext of alleged use of chemical weapons but on any ‘humanitarian’ pretext the US sees fit. In an interview with the Washington Post on 6 September, James Jeffrey, the hawkish new Special Envoy for Syria fresh from the neocon incubator of the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, did not mince words:

“We’ve started using new language,” Jeffrey said, referring to previous warnings against the use of chemical weapons. Now, he said, the United States will not tolerate “an attack. Period.”

“Any offensive is to us objectionable as a reckless escalation” he said. “You add to that, if you use chemical weapons, or create refugee flows or attack innocent civilians.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The primary question is, with the Russian/Turkish agreement in place on Idlib, how long with the Syrian government wait to regain Idlib from US backed terrorists, and will that be the "justification" for an American/Israeli strike against both Syria and Russia?!?

US Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard Blasts America’s Support for Al-Qaeda in Syria, as Trump Threatens Further Military Action

US military veteran and congresswomen for Hawaii, Tulsi Gabbard, has slammed US foreign policy in Syria.

Arming al-Qaeda

On the 13th of September, Gabbard told [23:06] comedian and satirist Jimmy Dore:

“Since 2011 both overtly and covertly, the United States has been providing arms, intelligence, and equipment to fighters who are allied with, fighting along side, working with, al Qaeda in this regime change war.

So these very same terrorists who attacked us on 9/11. We’ve been supporting for years, as this ground force to fight in this regime change war that we have been quietly waging now for seven years.”

These statements are strikingly up front, given the fact that these policies began under Democratic Party President Barack Obama.

On the 17th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, Gabbard also criticised Trump’s opposition the Syrian government’s plans to retake Idlib, by way of tweet:
?
@TulsiGabbard

US House candidate, HI-2

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This woman is one of the most courageous legislators I know of, as she has publicly decried both President Obama's and President Trump's policies toward Syria.

So help me Hannah, if this woman runs for President in 2020 (DNC Chair Tom Lopez, courtesy telephone, please), I will do everything I can to support her nomination. And by 2020, this country is going to desperately want a peace candidate, who understands the finer points of the art of negotiation.

Why Israel Demolishes: Khan Al-Ahmar as Representation of Greater Genocide

Like vultures, Israeli soldiers descended on Khan Al-Ahmar, on September 14, recreating a menacing scene with which the residents of this small Palestinian village, located East of Jerusalem, are all-too familiar.

The strategic location of Khan Al-Ahmar makes the story behind the imminent Israeli demolition of the peaceful village unique amid the ongoing destruction of Palestinian homes and lives throughout besieged Gaza and Occupied West Bank.

Throughout the years, Khan Al-Ahmar, once part of an uninterrupted Palestinian physical landscape has grown increasingly isolated. Decades of Israeli colonization of East Jerusalem and the West Bank left Khan Al-Ahmar trapped between massive and vastly expanding Israeli colonial projects: Ma’ale Adumim, Kfar Adumim among others.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is the subtext of "Israeli development"; creating housing developments which prevent there from being a contiguous Palestinian state.

‘Captain Marvel’ Is The Recruiting Tool Of The Air Force’s Dreams

After a minute of explosions, alien spacecraft, and a crash-landing in a Blockbuster — so you know it takes place in the ‘90s — the new trailer for the upcoming Marvel film shows us the real origins of Air Force Col. Carol Danvers. Danvers grows from downtrodden adolescent to determined Air Force cadet, to outstanding fighter pilot, to cosmically-powered warfighter in the span of a few frames.

If this seems familiar, it should. The trailer evokes old Department of Defense recruiting commercials, like a young woman’s transformation from student to Marine in last year’s recruiting spot, “Battle Up.” It’s a common hook in military recruiting ads: You tell a life story, or a coming-of-age tale, in 60 seconds flat. After all, joining the military to transform into the pinnacle of martial perfection, and thus become a national superhero in your own right, isn’t a new lure. Anyone remember that one commercial involving a mameluke-sword-wielding Marine in dress blues vanquishing a demon?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have seen this kind of recruiting up close and personal. We live not far from the Marine air station, where there are "festivals" where the general public is encouraged to attend, particularly with their families and kids.

I have watched some really bright, kid-centric, and young military officers engaging with kids, describing how various pieces of military hardware work, and I have seen those kids leave starry-eyed, and all aglow with what a military future might hold for them.

The reality that all wars are economic in nature, is never broached, and of course, nor are the real killing capabilities of all those wiz-bang machines they see assembled around them. One also almost never sees a wounded Vet at these events, to drive home the possibility of being killed, or physically maimed during combat.

It's all bright, shiny show of impending death to "the others" with no consequences to yourself, which get pitched at these events. I believe this to be absolutely morally wrong.

And if you have a teenage child who has seen this movie, and comes home talking about wanting to enlist in a branch of the military, please find someone from any organization like Veterans for Peace, and invite them over to talk to your kid.

They've been there; they understand what it is like to be "in country", where the job is to "pacify" the locals, insure a US-centric government stays in place, and where all the natural resources of that country are only sold in US dollars.

This... is what I mean when I say, "All wars are economic in nature."

Child pornography reason behind Sunspot Observatory closure, according to court documents

A federal search warrant reveals that Sunspot Solar Observatory was shut down as FBI agents conducted computer forensic searches for child pornography.

The source of child pornography was traced to an IP address used at the observatory and a source within the building observed a computer with "not good" images on it, the warrant states.

An investigation by the FBI revealed that a janitor is the main suspect in the search, however he has not been charged with a crime even though his name is on the warrant.

The warrant states the suspect would use the observatory Wifi and a personal laptop to download the child pornography.

5.2 million children at famine risk in Yemen: charity

More than five million children are at risk of famine in Yemen as the ongoing war causes food and fuel prices to soar across the country, charity Save the Children warned Wednesday.

Disruption to supplies coming through the embattled Red Sea port of Hodeida could "cause starvation on an unprecedented scale," the British based NGO said in a new report.

Save the Children said an extra one million children now risk falling into famine as prices of food and transportation rise, bringing the total to 5.2 million.

A Saudi-led alliance intervened in 2015 in a bid to bolster the president, accusing Iran of backing the Huthis, but nearly 10,000 people have since been killed.

Deadly clashes resumed around the Huthi-held port city of Hodeida following the collapse of talks in Geneva earlier this month.

"Millions of children don't know when or if their next meal will come," said Helle Thorning-Schmidt, CEO of Save the Children International.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Congrats, my brother and sister Americans; isn't it wonderful to understand that you live in a country aiding and abetting Saudi war crimes in Yemen?!?
Mattis says US is still backing Saudi coalition in Yemen war, as lawmakers fume

Yes, I said it; the blockade of Yemen's major ports, preventing food from getting in to innocent non-combatants, are blocked, and now that the Saudis are in position to take over the last port city in Yemen, Hodeidah, the situation will simply get more catastrophic.

And the US government and military are complicit here, up to their collective necks. And while our alleged representatives are allegedly "fuming" about this, they do nothing to stop it, because Tel Aviv and AIPAC want to see the Saudis "win", no matter how horrific the price in blood is for the Yemeni people.

US aircraft carrier Truman crosses Atlantic after threats to Syria

USS ‘Harry S. Truman’ is crossing the Atlantic after leaving the US east coast following last week’s drills. The movement of the carrier, used during the Middle East mission in April, comes in the wake of US threats to Damascus.
Data provided by the US Naval Institute (USNI) on Monday showed the ship in the Atlantic roughly over 1,000 km west of Ireland’s southern coast.

The previous position of the ship reported by the USNI the week before was not far from the US east coast. The aircraft carrier group with 6,500 sailors left its base in Norfolk and took part in “sustainment operations and carrier qualifications in the Atlantic” just over a week ago.

The warship’s Atlantic exercise comes after the White House warned earlier this month that it would respond “swiftly and appropriately” if the Syrian government used chemical weapons in its fight to secure Idlib.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US is sending a rather intense, and potentially badly timed, show of force, just at the moment after a Turkish/Russian agreement has been created to stop the potential slaughter in Idlib, which, admittedly, would most probably result in the deaths of hundreds of innocent civilians.

The worst case scenario I can imagine here is some Syrian effort to take out the terrorists on their own here, which will cause US missiles to start flying (probably aided by Israeli military) and we are off and running with a battle between the US and Israel on one side, and Syria and Russia on the other.

Top SWAT Cop, Firefighter, Gov’t Employees Among Dozens Busted in Child Sex Sting Operation

The sting involved inviting the would-be child predators to a home where they thought they were meeting an underage boy or girl for sex.

“When they showed up at our undercover house seeking to meet their intended victims for sex, they were arrested,” said Grewal. “The defendants are now charged with serious crimes and are either behind bars or subject to very stringent pre-trial monitoring.”

Conte was one of 24 men to show up at the house. He allegedly told the girl he was only 19 and admitted to having sex with other children.

“Conte claimed during his chats that he was a 19-year-old male, believing that he was chatting with a 15-year-old girl. He allegedly said that he had had sex with underage girls, and wanted to meet the girl to ‘get naked.’ He had condoms in his pocket when he was arrested,” Grewal said.

State Legislator Says 11-Year-Old Tased By Cop Deserved It And Her Parents Probably Suck

Cincinnati police officer Kevin Brown’s decision to fire a Taser at an 11-year-old girl suspected of shoplifting from a grocery store in August immediately drew criticism from city officials and advocates.

But Ohio state Representative John Becker had a different take. Had it been his daughter, he announced in an August newsletter, “I’d be ashamed and embarrassed that she did something stupid enough to get herself tased.”

This is even worse than the police union's take on the incident, which referred to the completely expected backlash as "kneejerk." But, hey, I guess deciding to tase an 11-year-old in the back -- one who reportedly was all of 4'11'' and 90 pounds -- couldn't possibly be portrayed as a kneejerk reaction by a law enforcement officer. When force isn't truly needed, we can be sure some cops will deploy it anyway.

North, South Korea to Form Joint Military Committee

On Wednesday, President Moon Jae-in and North Korea’s Kim Jong Un signed a joint statement on the general improvement of inter-Korean relations, capping off a very successful third summit which appears to have gotten the denuclearization operations back on track.

In addition to denuclearization and peace talks efforts, the two Koreas agreed to found a joint military committee, which will be charged with maintaining communication between the two nations, and prevent any accidental clashes.

This is potentially a hugely important step, as the two nations try to reduce decades of military tensions, and negotiate efforts to move their respective forces away from the border as the efforts to negotiate a peace treaty advance.

Israeli Air Force commander to arrive in Moscow on Thursday to hand data on Il-20 crash

Israeli Air Force Commander Amikan Norkin will head to Moscow to hand over the information on the Ilyushin Il-20 warplane crash in Syria, Israel’s Defense Forces said on Wednesday.

"On Thursday morning, a delegation of Israel’s Defense Forces headed by Major General Amikan Norkin, the Air Force Commander, will head to Moscow after the downing of a Russian plane by a Syrian missile on Monday night," says the communique circulated by the military.

"The Air Force commander and the delegation will present data on the incident in all aspects, including preliminary information and main conclusions of the investigation," it says.

The Israeli delegation will inform Russia "of Iran’s ongoing attempts to supply Lebanon’s Hezbollah movement with strategic weapons and to gain a military foothold in Syria," the press service said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So it has become Israeli Air Force Commander Amikan Norkin's task to plead to Russian officials that none of the carnage and loss of life was their fault, but only the fault of Hezbollah, Iran, Lebanon, and Syria.

I almost feel sorry for the guy... but not quite!!! This is quintessential Israeli hubris, writ large, at its most ugly.

While the Russian government will most probably do this time is respond economically, with sanctions. But if Israel chooses to do this again with impunity, and because of US/Israeli defense commitments, this could lead to a shooting war between Israel and the US on one side, against Syria and Russia on the other.

Color me more than just a bit nervous on this possibility.

STATE LEGISLATOR SAYS 11-YEAR-OLD TASED BY COP DESERVED IT AND HER PARENTS PROBABLY SUCK

This is even worse than the police union's take on the incident, which referred to the completely expected backlash as "kneejerk." But, hey, I guess deciding to tase an 11-year-old in the back -- one who reportedly was all of 4'11'' and 90 pounds -- couldn't possibly be portrayed as a kneejerk reaction by a law enforcement officer. When force isn't truly needed, we can be sure some cops will deploy it anyway.

But Rep. John Becker's take is the hottest take of all. Anyone tased by a cop -- even an 11-year-old -- is a person who brought that crackling, barbed punishment down on themselves. There's no reason to question the wisdom or necessity of the Taser deployment. Rather, we should question ourselves. And perhaps society. But mostly ourselves.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And the Police Department in that city cannot possibly subdue a 90 lb eleven year old girl with anything else but a taser?!?

Right now, I would say that the child's whole family is in desperate need of some kind of counseling intervention, because if this kid continues to go down this path, there's no way she won't wind up in juvenile hall, with lengthy prison sentences sure to follow.

And I have to ask myself; is this the outcome we want for this child?!? Institutionalized, thrown away, and forgotten, as so many other kids have been, and committed to an ever more dangerous way of living, every time she gets out of juvie or jail?!?

I think that thinking, mature adults would have to say, absoflippinglutely not.

Brett Kavanaugh was Deep State’s Point Man for Vince Foster Murder Cover-up

Since the Clintons left office nearly 15 years ago, there has been little interest in the Vince Foster case, but Whitewater grand jury witness Patrick Knowlton and I continued our research at the National Archives uncovering evidence of the Foster murder cover-up.

Twenty-nine year old Brett Kavanaugh replaced Miguel Rodriguez when he resigned from Kenneth Starr’s Office of Independent Counsel.

Rodriguez said that Deputy Independent Counsel Mark Tuohey “cancelled everything [he] was doing” and “undermined everything [he] had done.”

Kavanaugh sided with the Democrat Tuohey in opposing efforts by Rodriguez to uncover the truth.

JUSTICE DEPARTMENT INSPECTOR GENERAL TO INVESTIGATE DEA PROGRAM LINKED TO MASSACRES IN MEXICO

The Justice Department’s inspector general announced on Tuesday that his office would investigate a Drug Enforcement Administration program linked to violent drug cartel attacks in Mexico that have left dozens, possibly hundreds, of people dead or missing.

In a letter to senior congressional Democrats, Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz said that an internal review had flagged the DEA’s Sensitive Investigative Units program as “an area of high risk.” His office, he wrote, would examine the drug agency’s management of the program and whether internal controls are in place to ensure that “DEA operations, information and personnel are protected from compromise.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I expect nothing to come from these "investigations" but pure theatre, because too much money is laundered through the sale of illegal drugs for the DOJ to really care about changing the outcomes of these investigations.

Had the reports not come forward from Nat Geo and ProPublica, these investigations would never be happening right now: the DOJ is simply making the appearance of "doing something" so this violence will cease, but don't expect it to make one tiny dent in the cartel drug business, or the assassinations it creates, on either side of the US/Mexican border.

DESPITE PLEDGE NOT TO, GERMANY APPROVES SALE OF WEAPONS TO SAUDI ARABIA

With Saudi Arabia forever escalating their war in Yemen, the growing calls by human rights groups to stop selling them arms with which to commit war crimes are struggling to compete with the vast sums of money the Saudis are offering for those arms.

Germany is the latest to renege on promises to ban weapons sales for use in the Yemen War, announcing Wednesday that the Economy Minister has greenlit a new round of artillery systems for sale to the Saudis.

The systems are designed for precise counterattack, and are clearly being bought explicitly to use in Yemen. Yet the Merkel government, as part of its coalition deal, announced a full export ban to “any sides fighting in Yemen,” including the Saudis.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Congratulations, German Prime Minister Merkel, for committing the German people to yet more assassination and genocide of the Yemeni people, and what you have done here looks like this (and no, these images are NOT photoshopped):

images: Yemeni children killed, courtesy of US/enabled Saudi bombing raids over their country

Images: Yemeni children starving to death, courtesy of US-enabled Saudi blockades of Yemeni ports

Images: Yemeni children dying of (potentially weaponized) cholera

Glad you're morally happy with this choice, Prime Minister Merkel, and German arms makers are laughing themselves all the way to the bank from the coming wanton destruction of Yemeni lives by the Saudis.

BILL GATES: THE THREAT OF A "DISEASE X" GLOBAL PANDEMIC IS "VERY REAL"

When it comes to global health policy, Bill Gates has never been known for subtlety. So it's hardly surprising that his charitable foundation's latest report on the greatest challenges facing mankind might make some readers want to lock themselves in an indefinite quarantine.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When Gates talks about more vaccines, I start to shudder, knowing the evils they have inflicted on many children and older people. Here are just a few of "experiments gone wrong", on Gates's "charity watch."

Bill Gate's "philanthropy: 30,000 Indian girls were used as Guinea-pigs

Crime Disguised as Charity: how the Gates Foundation financially benefits from pushing vaccines and GMOS

Bill Gates Is on a Mission to Sell GMOs to Africa, but He's Not Telling the Whole Truth
Peddling the "false choice" of GMOs or hunger, the earth's richest person conveniently fails to mention increased exposure to cancer-causing pesticides and water poisoned by chemical runoff.

So you will forgive me, if every time he mentions the V word (as in vaccine), you will find me running for the proverbial hills, my organic silver in toe, along with only organic foods to share, and eat with Mike.

MARINE LE PEN MUST UNDERGO PSYCHIATRIC EVALUATION, FRENCH COURT RULES

In a decision that will undoubtedly outrage conservatives who have sought to highlight the horrors of terrorist groups like ISIS, a French court has ruled that Marine Le Pen, the leader of the party formerly known as the National Front (now National Rally) and runner-up in last year's French presidential vote, must undergo a psychiatric evaluation to determine whether "she is capable of understanding remarks and answering questions."

In other words, the court is treating Le Pen as if being conservative is a mental illness.

The ruling follows formal charges that were brought against Le Pen in March after she tweeted gruesome photos of the bodies of innocent people subjected to horrific deaths at the hands of ISIS. The decision horrified conservatives who accused the French government of attempting to criminalize conservative political speech, as it was only the latest example of a disturbing trend in the European Union, per the Local.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

How amazingly old-Soviet Union of the French authorities; but don't think, for even a millisecond, with algorithms in this country crushing conservative views through that nefarious Triumvirate known as Google, Facebook and Twitter, even if the truth and facts on suppressed sites are astonishingly correct, that such an action could not possibly happen in the Unhinged Surveilled State of Amerika.

WHY CHRISTINE BLASEY FORD’S HIGH SCHOOL YEARBOOKS WERE SCRUBBED: Faculty Approved Racism, Binge Drinking and Promiscuity

On Monday Sept. 17th, Christine Blasey Ford’s high school yearbooks suddenly disappeared from the web. I read them days before, knew they would be scrubbed, and saved them. Why did I know they would be scrubbed? Because if roles were reversed, and Christine Blasey Ford had been nominated for the Supreme Court by President Trump, the headline by the resistance would be this:

CHRISTINE BLASEY FORD AND THE DRUNKEN WHITE PRIVILEGED RACIST PLAYGIRLS OF HOLTON-ARMS.

And it would be an accurate headline. That’s why the yearbooks have been scrubbed. They are a testament to the incredible power these girls had over their teachers, parents and the boys of Georgetown Prep, Landon and other schools in the area. In the pages below, you will see multiple photos and references to binge drinking and the accompanying joy of not being able to remember any of it.

MAJOR INSURANCE COMPANY TO ONLY SELL ONLY HEALTH-TRACKER BACKED LIFE INSURANCE

A week ago, Apple announced a redesigned smartwatch that could track heart data, run EKGs, and even detect atrial fibrillation, promising that it would save lives. Today, one of America's biggest insurers killed its traditional life insurance policies, replacing them with "interactive" insurance that encourages users to use such devices and share the data with them to get perks.

These are already available, but will soon be the only option on John Hancock's menu.

Policyholders score premium discounts for hitting exercise targets tracked on wearable devices such as a Fitbit or Apple Watch and get gift cards for retail stores and other perks by logging their workouts and healthy food purchases in an app.

Privacy and consumer advocates have raised questions about whether insurers may eventually use data to select the most profitable customers, while hiking rates for those who do not participate.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I predict that we will see insurance rates hike to the point of people not using devices like this not being able to afford health insurance whatsoever.

So what's the next step, please; if the individual using such a tool takes a drop in their "insurance-worthiness", euthanasia?!?

‘Rules for thee, not for me’ Democrats pick & choose sex assault abusers to believe

A woman accusing Democrat Rep. Keith Ellison (Minnesota) of abuse says the party abandoned her – a far cry from top Democrats’ public show of support for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s accuser.

Karen Monahan said that she was “smeared, threatened, (and) isolated” by the Democratic party when she came forward with allegations of physical and emotional abuse against Rep. Ellison, the Democratic National Committee deputy chair and Minnesota attorney general candidate.

“I’ve been smeared, threatened, isolated from my own party,” Monahan tweeted Monday. “I provided medical records from 2017, stating on two different Dr. Visits, I told them about the abuse and who did it. My therapist released records stating I have been dealing and healing from the abuse.”

Gunman killed by police after hurting three in shooting at US software firm

A man who injured three people when he shot up a software company in a suburb of Madison, Wisconsin on Wednesday has been killed by police, authorities said.

The attacker had been critically hurt during the late-morning shooting at WTS Paradigm in Middleton, and later died, Middleton Police Chief Chuck Foulke said. Three other people were wounded during the attack, Foulke said.

City Administrator Mike Davis initially said four people were injured during the shooting in Middleton, about 90 miles (145 kilometres) west of Milwaukee. But he and Foulke said the correct number is three, not including the suspect.

US Removes Freedom of the Press from Its Legal Guidebook

The United States government which early this year unveiled sanctions against top Iranians and national bodies, including the communications minister and the culture ministry, hitting back for alleged media and Internet censorship, is itself one of the biggest violators of freedom of the press in the world.

It’s all for distracting the attention of international civil society when the Trump administration imposes sanctions on Iranian entities and individuals for alleged human rights abuses and censorship. The United States engages in vast human rights abuses and injustice, and the evidence is plenty:

Journalists and free press advocates across the globe are responding with alarm to newly released documents revealing the US government's secret rules for using Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court orders to spy on reporters and arrest them, calling the revelations "important" and "terrifying."

Tibbetts, a rising sophomore at the University of Iowa, disappeared on July 18 while jogging in her rural farming town of Brooklyn, a close-knit community of about 1,500 residents.

Her disappearance garnered national attention and state and federal investigators were soon asked to join the case.
