Israel national news paper Haaretz goes public with Israels now 'declared' Nuclear Arsenal

U.S. President Donald Trump became the fourth U.S. president to uphold the decades-long pledge not to press Israel to give up its nuclear weapons after a delegation of senior Israeli officials met with the then-national security adviser Michael Flynn at the White House. In 1969, Prime Minister Golda Meir met with U.S. President Richard Nixon and they reached an unwritten agreement that Israel would not declare or test its nuclear weapons. Ed note, was Fukushima Israel's testing ground? #1 https://bit.ly/2tjXF7O #2 https://fxn.ws/2FW7oW7 #3 https://bit.ly/2MS9uee

36-minute video: Carl Herman/Jim Fetzer discuss the Meaning of Life: Earth dominated by .01% psychopaths AND 95% of humanity unable and/or unwilling to embrace crucial facts. Just what is God/Life up to???

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

My essay on the Meaning of Life; summary in three points:
1. Earth has been, and is currently, dominated under lie-covered illegal rogue state empire that is Emperor’s New Clothes obvious.
2. Despite an Emperor’s New Clothes condition with sufficient people clearly speaking and documenting, ~95% of humanity attack those messengers, including those with academic training and professional experience that you would think would show extreme interest in game-changing objective data.
3. God/Life simply means whatever sources creation. The condition on Earth, therefore, is permitted by God/Life despite being more evil than most people have capacity to imagine, and annually war-poverty murdering millions, harming billions, and looting trillions.

WHY THOUSANDS OF SWEDES ARE INSERTING MICROCHIPS INTO THEMSELVES

Thousands of people in Sweden have inserted microchips, which can function as contactless credit cards, key cards and even rail cards, into their bodies. Once the chip is underneath your skin, there is no longer any need to worry about misplacing a card or carrying a heavy wallet. But for many people, the idea of carrying a microchip in their body feels more dystopian than practical.

AN INCREASING NUMBER OF STRUGGLING AMERICANS ARE TURNING TO CHECK CASHERS AND PAYDAY LOANS

“People who are taking payday loans are people who make $50,000, $60,000, $70,000 a year, own their homes and have a college education. That’s the fastest-growing group. It’s not people who ‘don’t know better.’”

White woman 'calls COPS on a black girl, 8,' who was selling WATER outside her own home

A Twitter video of a woman on her cell phone has gone viral because she seems to be calling the cops on a black girl selling water on the sidewalk.

The video appears to be shot near San Francisco's AT&T Park before the Giants' Saturday afternoon game against the San Diego Padres, where a young girl was announcing 'Cold water for two dollars'.

'So my little cousin was selling water and didn't have a permit so this lady decided to call the cops on an 8 year old,' wrote Twitter user Raj (@_ethipiangold) alongside a video of the confrontation.

Raj refers to the woman as #PermitPatty.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I think this is the same gal that called the cops on the BBQ folks 3 weeks ago!

Atrocity Porn And Hitler Memes Target Trump For Regime Change

For those who have been paying attention for the past couple of decades, the Trump border crisis kids, like Aleppo Boy before them, are human props in what is known as 'atrocity porn' designed to titillate the viewers through horror and incite them to hatred of the presumed perpetrators. Atrocity propaganda has long been a part of warfare – think World War I claims of Belgian babies impaled on German bayonets – but with modern digital technology and social media the impact is immediate and universal.

The economic assault on the 2nd Amendment

During the Barack Obama regime the Department of Just(Us) launched Operation Choke Point, a multi-pronged strategy emanating from the administration to bureaucratically hamstring businesses that lawfully deal in firearms. The goal was to lean on banks to cut ties to gun dealers, especially small mom-and-pop operations, even if even if those companies had valid licenses and good credit histories. This followed 2011 warning by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) that classified the firearms trade as a “high-risk” business category, setting it up as requiring more paperwork and creating a “litigation risk and reputation risk for financial institutions,” as then FDIC General Counsel Richard Osterman said at the time.

Fake News and Immigration

First, the “separation of families” for which Trump is being blamed is a feature of a policy that was passed by a Democrat-controlled Congress and signed into law back in 2008 by George W. Bush. This policy was continued throughout Barack Obama’s two terms. In fact, the emotionally-charged photos of detention facilities circulated by the Fake News media that were designed to convict Trump of heartlessness were taken while Obama was President. This is one crucial respect in which coverage of this issue reveals itself for the Fake News that it is. Yet it is certainly not the only respect. Second, that for a decade—the decade that their fellow partisans held control of the levers of power in D.C.—fake journalists didn’t utter a peep about this policy for which they are now blasting Trump proves that they are cooking a controversy for partisan political purposes. This isn’t journalism. It is advocacy. It is political. It is fake.

Citizenship Checkpoints Start to Spread Across The Constitution-Free Zone

Devastating Humanitarian Crisis: Update on the Situation in Hodeidah, Yemen

Quote from NRC’s Hodeidah Office Coordinator, Saleem Al-Shamiri, in Sana’a:

“Many people fled their homes in Hodeidah already. Sana’a and other cities are receiving many displaced. Water supplies have been cut off in some areas. Even families who refused to leave their house behind, have now been forced to flee because the fighting is closing in. Some of my friends arrived yesterday and today early morning. They are concerned for their future and worried they have lost their homes and income. How will they manage to rebuild their lives again?”

“I have friends who can’t leave their homes because they don’t have the means to travel. They are scared for their safety. They might be left in the crossfire without any water, food or way to escape. I am hoping the warring parties will allow safe routes out of the city as the fighting gets closer. People must be given a chance to save their own lives.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As a Christian Pacifist Activist, I decry the actions of the US government in enabling Saudi war crimes in Yemen.

But I seriously doubt that the Saudi, or US governments, will allow safe passage for innocent civilians, and this is why.

Do you remember the scene in the film "Avatar", and I am paraphasing here, where the General decides to "create a crater so deep in the memories of the Navi people", that they will never dare to fight against the mining coalition which is destroying their planet,, ever again?

This is precisely what the US and Saudi Government have, essentially, vowed to do in Yemen.

They will create hundreds of killing fields, so that the people of Yemen, will never again fight their rule, and will be "pacified" into accepting whatever puppet government the Saudis and the US slide into Saana.

There will be no "humanitarian aid" with which to comfort those left standing; all we will see here, is a slaughter, courtesy of the genocidal Butcher of Yemen, Saudi Arabia's Prince Salman, aided and abetted by his BFF in the White House, President Trump.

As I type this, UAE military, overseen by American soldiers, are torturing Yemen prisoners, and unfortunately, again this time, our CIA's Gina Haspel is up to her elbows in more torture, and more blood.

US-Backed forces claime to "liberate" Yemenis, but instead rape detainees in secret.

Why are there no indignant outcries from the corporate Presstitute Media on this?!? Why, in the name of God, are there no requests for US reporters, to embed with these "interrogators" from the UAE?!?

Very simply, they are not allowed. No questions are allowed to be asked, in the runup to this slaughter.

But I will tell you, as long as there is breath in my body, I will continue to witness, peacefully, and never advocating violence, as a Christian, to the evils being done in my name, and in the names of all Americans, here in Yemen.

U.S. Double Standards in the Middle East. Washington Backs Terrorists and Extremists

of the USA.

This statement hasn’t appeared recently. In 2002, the Joint Resolution to authorize U.S. military actions against Iraq cited:

“Iraq continuing to possess and develop a significant chemical and biological weapons capability posed a threat to the national security of the United States.”

Before carrying out air strikes on Syria, 14 April, 2018, the White House used the same justifications. The American president acted within his legal authority as commander-in-chief “to protect vital national interests – stopping the spread of chemical weapons and preventing a humanitarian catastrophe.” However, if in 2002, the Iraq Resolution was passed by the U.S. Congress as public law No: 107-243, this time President Trump didn’t seek any authorization from other government institutions.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The ultimate goal here, by the US government, is quite simple, no matter how much carnage it creates to reach the following goals; control all oil, and other resources in the Middle East, and insure that these resources, are only sold in US dollars.

Yemen War: Iranian Navy Dispatches Warships to Gulf of Aden

On June 21, the Iranian Navy dispatched two warships to the Gulf of Aden, where a fierce battle is ongoing between the Ansar Allah movement (also known as the Houthis) and the Saudi-led coalition for the port city of al-Hudaydah.

According to Iran’s Tasnim News Agency, Iran sent a helicopter-carrier and a naval destroyer. The deployment of Iranian warships in the area will likely further complicate relations between Riyadh and Teheran. However, two warships will not be enough to lift a naval blockade from al-Hudaydah.

Meanwhile, the Houthis repelled another attempt by the Saudi-led coalition and its proxies to capture the al-Hudaydah airport in western Yemen recapturing most of the positions, which they had lost previously.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US government's participation in Saudi war crimes in Yemen does NOT make me proud to be an American; and it is a matter of great concern to me, that President Trump's two BBFs in the Middle East, are Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, the Butcher of Gaza, and the Saudi Crown Prince Salman, the Butcher of Yemen.

US-BACKED FORCES CLAIM TO “LIBERATE” YEMENIS, INSTEAD RAPE DETAINEES IN SECRET PRISONS

The so-called “liberators” in Yemen are sexually and physically torturing detainees at secret prisons. Survivors recall disturbing stories laden with gruesome interrogation tactics for extracting false confessions. Meanwhile, the Saudi-led coalition in Yemen attempts to portray themselves as the bearers of freedom and reason.

As an ally of the United States’ “counter-terrorism” operation in Yemen, the United Arab Emirates established 18 prisons throughout territory under their control. An ongoing investigation from the Associated Press has so far identified instances of deranged sexual torture at five of these facilities. The Emirati headquarters in Yemen houses one of such facilities where witnesses have seen American soldiers.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, even with assuring the American people that the CIA will not longer torture, or outsource it, Gina Haspel has lied to the American people, yet again.

Ms. Haspel, understanding what you have done, or allowed to be done by the UAE, is an abomination; a profound disappointment;and an irrefutable demonstration, that you are a traitor to the citizens of this country.

You said anything to get confirmed; you lied. We understand that

And President Trump, you, by your inaction, and not firing Haspel on the spot, now that you understand that this is going on under your watch, as President, is horrific in the extreme.

Where are the Hanns Schraffs of the world, when you need them?!?

Hanns Scharff, Nazi Interrogator who revealed the value of kindness

This man was so revered after World War II, that he was invited to teach these techniques of interrigation in American military academies.

CONGRESS TO GIVE JEFF SESSIONS MORE POWER TO BAN WHATEVER SUBSTANCE HE DOESN'T LIKE

Allowing government to arbitrarily determine which substances human beings can put into their own bodies is one of the most idiotic things a society can do. As such, its no surprise Congress is salivating at the prospect of furthering this travesty by giving additional discretion on the matter to drug war-crazed loon, Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

If you think the Department of Justice has more than enough tools to wage the war on drugs, a bill passed by the House would create a fast-track scheduling system that could lead to the criminalization of kratom, nootropics, and pretty much anything that gives you a buzz and isn’t already illegal.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have to wonder both what Sessions is worth, How much is Jeff Sessions worth and how much of that comes from investments/endorsements from the pharaceutical industries.

He is also very much a friend of the private prison industry:

Trump Administration brings back private prison industries, 2017

I am certain that many of those people, many of them Vets, just trying to get relief from long-term pain, with some of these substances, will find themselves incarcerated at some of these facilities, so Sessions' "good buds" in the private prison industry will profit handsomely, as a result of this legislation.

‘EVERYDAY CENSORSHIP’ PROPOSED THAT SHOULD ENRAGE US ALL

When one of the creators of the Internet as we know it today (not you Al Gore!) voices their discontent with the latest overstep of power towards full throttle censorship, you know it’s serious business.

Tim Berners-Lee, best known for his work helping to create the World Wide Web, along with other Internet pioneers, have penned an open letter opposing the Members of European Parliament (MEPs) who voted earlier this week in favor of a plan to force publishers to automatically remove any content that appears to violate copyright.

The Independent reports this means “memes, mixes, sampling, and even reuse of news and parliamentary footage, will get caught up and deleted without warning.”

Publishers will be expected to monitor all their content uploads and check for copyright material and remove it immediately, and ostensibly by doing so automatically, as outlined in Article 13 of the proposal.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

... Which is precisely what the EU hopes to accomplish with Article 13.

Acting Like a Hate Group, SPLC Pays Large Settlement and May Be Sued Further

“SPLC” may not stand for Sneaky Propaganda and Libel Center, but more and more Americans think it should. This is especially true after the organization had to pay a large settlement to an Islamic reformer it falsely labeled an “anti-Muslim extremist,” a victory that has inspired other targeted entities to also consider suing the SPLC.

The far left-wing SPLC, or Southern Poverty Law Center, has long played a real-life cross between Santa Claus and Stalin, making a list of who’s naughty or nice and then managing to “gift” those it deems “haters” with stigmatization. Yet the misnamed organization — it has little to do with poverty or law, neither experiencing nor alleviating the former and violating the latter’s spirit — makes a habit of targeting those whose only trespass is, well, disagreeing with the SPLC. I ought to know: I myself was placed on its “HateWatch” page about a decade ago (more on that later).

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF there are more class action law suits are going to be filed, Mike and I would, very much, like to join, in behalf of the website, www.whatreallyhappened.com.

The degree to which the management of this organisation maligned Mike's site, can only be seen by reasonably sane people, as a demonstration of rank disingenuousness.

Trump parades families who were 'permanently separated' from their relatives when they were killed by criminal illegal immigrants as he showcases the 'other side' of the immigration debate

Sabine Durden, a face case of the White House event, recalled how an illegal immigrant from Guatemala killed her son in a July 2012 drunk driving incident
'I was gonna end my life. I had no purpose. But President Trump coming down that escalator...stopped me in my track,' she said
She was referring to Trump's 2015 announcement that he was running for office
Trump said he brought the families out because 'you hear the other side, you never hear this side, you don't know what's going on'
'They're not separated for a day or two days,' he said. 'They are permanently separated'
Trump signed life-sized photos of the attendees' murdered relatives

Timothy Carpenter was sentenced to 116 years in prison after being found guilty in 2013 of planning a number of armed robberies across the American Midwest. Police used his cellphone records to link him to the crimes but Carpenter argued at his trial that the records were inadmissible as they had been obtained without a legal writ.

THE STATUE OF LIBERTY POEM IS NOW A WEAPON IN AMERICA’S CULTURE WAR

Lazarus was neither a Founding Father nor a towering figure in American history. Her words have never been law and her poem is not attached to the Constitution. It’s simply the expression of one 19th century socialist. The poem wasn’t even placed on the Statue of Liberty when the monument was unveiled in 1886, which of course was a gift from France to the United States.

The idea that Lazarus’s poem is somehow equivalent to the Constitution, the Declaration or the writings of the Founders is ridiculous. Nor has American migration resembled the picture Lazarus describes in her writing.

Fourth Amendment Victory: U.S. Supreme Court Protects Americans’ Cell Phone Records Against Warrantless Government, Police Surveillance

In a 5-4 ruling in Carpenter v. United States that sends a strong message about privacy rights in an age of government surveillance, the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that police must generally obtain a warrant before obtaining cell phone data to track a person’s movements. Denouncing the now widespread tactic employed by police departments, big and small, of spying on Americans via their cell phones with little to no oversight, The Rutherford Institute had asked the Supreme Court to require police agencies to secure a warrant before executing a cell phone search and using that data to track a person’s movements over time. In its amicus brief, The Rutherford Institute called on the Court to reject the government’s claim that cell phone users have no reasonable expectation of privacy in cell phone location information, an idea that is based on the antiquated idea that individuals “voluntarily” provide this information to cellular service providers.

Is The United States On A Road To Becoming Ungovernable?

For a long time I have observed the rancor in modern American political discourse, and I have become concerned about where all of this anger and frustration is taking us. In order for any society to function, there must be some form of government. And in order for government to function, a certain percentage of the population has to be willing to submit to the authority of that government.

For example, there will always be a few tax protesters out there that refuse to pay their taxes, but if every single American suddenly decided to stop paying taxes our system of taxation would collapse overnight. Sure, the government could prosecute thousands of us, but if that crackdown still didn’t motivate people to start paying their taxes there is not much that could be done.

The Rockefeller-Connected Cronyist Origins Of Social Security

the time Social Security was being developed, about 15 percent of workers were covered by a company pension plan, with a little more than 300 – mostly large – businesses offering such plans. In his testimony before the Senate Finance Committee in 1935, Brown declared that government compulsion of universal employer “contributions” to old-age pensions would make “uniform throughout industry a minimum cost of providing old-age security and protect(s) the more liberal employer now providing pensions from the competition of the employer who otherwise fires the old person without a pension.”
