Groucho Marx: Behind The Mustache

Of the five Marx brothers, Groucho Marx may be the most iconic, and for good reason. Groucho was one of the greatest comedians of the modern era and one of the most recognizable. The prolific entertainer appeared on stage, in vaudeville, in films, on television, and on the radio. Behind that greasepaint mustache and exaggerated eyebrows, however, was a complex person. Here's what you didn’t know about Groucho Marx.

The Iroquois Confederacy: How The Revolutionary War Broke A Centuries-Old Alliance

The original Iroquois Confederacy, called the Five Nations, was an arrangement between the Seneca, Mohawk, Oneida, Cayuga, and Onondaga tribes. By all accounts, it was an ideal organization. The individual tribes retained their own traditions and cultures but could count on the other tribes in times of war, dispute, hunting, and celebration. However, the Revolutionary War broke apart this centuries-old alliance, effectively ending the Iroquois's dominance in the New World. Let's look at how that happened.

Video of the final shootout. Really noisy.

A violent police response to a botched robbery in Florida has come under fire by one victim’s family. The high-speed chase ended in a shootout in which officers gunned down the robbers, but also a hostage and a bystander.

At least 19 officers from five different agencies fired over 200 rounds at the robbers in the intense gun battle on Thursday, after a failed jewelry store holdup led police on a chase spanning several counties in South Florida.

Pearl Harbor Revisited: Dispelling Surprise Attack Mythology

“I ask that the Congress declare that since the unprovoked and dastardly attack by Japan on Sunday, December 7, 1941, a state of war has existed between the United States and the Japanese Empire.”

Around one hour after Roosevelt’s December 8 address before a joint congressional session, the body declared war on Japan with one dissenting vote, signed into law by FDR the same day.

All wars are unjustifiably justified based on Big Lies and deception, WW II no exception. Roosevelt wanted involvement in Europe’s war. He wanted legislation requiring US neutrality reversed.

After the Japanese code was broken, intercepted cables confirmed an attack was coming. The US tracked its fleet from the Kurile Islands to its North Pacific refueling point en route to Pearl Harbor on or about December 7.

At a December 5 cabinet meeting, Navy Secretary Frank Knox said: “Well, you know Mr. President, we know where the Japanese fleet is?”

Japan – Ending a War and Saving Lives?

I hope Curtis is enjoying the heat in Hell!

Gen. Douglas MacArthur’s aide, Brigadier Gen. Bonner Fellers, called LeMay’s bombing of Tokyo “one of the most ruthless and barbaric killings of noncombatants in all history”, but LeMay was proud of his accomplishment in Japan, as he would later be in Korea, boasting that he successfully “scorched and boiled and baked to death well over half a million Japanese civilians, perhaps nearly a million”, in that one event in Tokyo alone. After the success of this first attack, LeMay was determined to continue, stating his intention to have Tokyo entirely “burned down – wiped right off the map”, and proceeded to carry out his homicidal determination with repeated fire-bombings covering an increasingly greater area of Japan.

Follow The Money: BlackRock, Vanguard Await New Opportunities In China

While the Western world controlled the 20th century, the 21st century could be soon controlled by China.

Six of the world's largest asset managers, including BlackRock and Vanguard, are eager to do more business in China, reported Bloomberg.

Sources said these firms had told regulators they plan to apply for fully-foreign-owned mutual fund licenses after China Securities Regulatory Commission said in Oct., that it would allow overseas institutions more power over onshore ventures in 2020.

Fidelity told Bloomberg via a statement this week that it's preparing to file for a mutual fund license in China.

These big Wall Street banks see nearly $12.8 trillion of investable assets in Chinese households.

Though China's economy is slowing with growth rates crashing to three-decade lows and a trade war with the US with no immediate resolution, Western bankers understand that by 2030, the center of the global economy could be China, not the US.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That is, of course, is premised on the not necessarily strong supposition, that the US government won't order a war against it, to bomb it back to beyond the stone age, or try to "gum up the works" with some computer/financial sabotage.

The iPhone 11’s U1 chip necessitates constant geolocation checks, Apple says

Six Saudis Arrested For Questioning After Pensacola Shooting - Three Were Filming Attack

Six Saudi nationals were taken into custody for questioning near the Florida naval base where an Air Force trainee - also from Saudi Arabia - opened fire Friday morning, killing three before a sheriff's deputy shot and killed him.

According to the New York Times, three of the Saudis were filming the attack. It is unknown whether they were students at the base, or whether they are connected to the gunman.

The shooting spanned two floors in a classroom, according to Sheriff David Morgan of Escambia Country. Two deputies were shot in the ensuing gun battle and are expected to recover.

The gunman, identified as Saudi Air Force second lieutenant Mohammed Saeed Alshamrani, used a locally bought Glock 45 9mm handgun with an extended magazine, and was carrying between four and six more magazines.

In his last message on Twitter confirmed by AFP, Alshamrani wrote that America is a nation of evil.

Denied Entry to Gaza for Breast Cancer MissionA full training and treatment project was wrecked after Israel had denied permission for Philippa Whitford.

Israeli occupation has denied permission for British lawmaker, Philippa Whitford, who is a doctor, from entering Gaza to offer help for patients of breast cancer.

Over the past two and half years[1], I have been working with Medical Aid for Palestine (MAP) to improve the provision of services and treatment for breast cancer patients in Palestine.

Last year, I travelled out with the specific aim of setting up a project to enable experienced professionals in breast cancer care to provide teaching and training to local Palestinian clinicians working with breast cancer patients.

Since my last visit, I have managed to recruit a team of specialists from all over Scotland to join the project, which will help improve breast cancer care – prevention, diagnosis and treatment – for women in Gaza and the West Bank.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is unredeemably vile, on the part of Israel officials, who really want these women to die, rather than profit from advances in breast cancer care.

But you have to look at this from the larger perspective of the Israeli Government's "Final Solution to the Palestinian Question"; denying these women state of the art care, is all part of the plan.

Most of us know - or know of - someone who has been diagnosed with this kind of cancer, but have, luckily, been able to beat it, at least in a first remission period.

All women on this planet, deserve the best, most intelligent approaches to beating this disease which exist today.

US Navy, Air Force team up on new ‘Manhattan Project’

The U.S. Navy and Air Force are teaming up to rapidly develop a network that can link together Air Force and Navy assets during battle, an effort the Navy’s top officer compared to the 1940s program to develop an atomic bomb.

Adm. Michael Gilday, the new Chief of Naval Operations, told an audience Thursday that in order to take on China, the Navy will have to spread out and rely on networked weapons and sensors distributed over a wide area. But doing that would rely on a network architecture that doesn’t yet exist.

To be the most effective force, the Navy acknowledges it must be able to connect with Air Force bombers and aircraft, leading the two services to an agreement to join forces.

What stuns me, in reading this report, is that such a system was not up and running years ago.

US House Votes Against Israeli Annexation of West Bank

The resolution was intended both to contradict President Trump, whose recent positions have been pro-occupation and pro-annexation, as well as to potentially warn Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu against any hasty annexations, something he’s been advocating recently.

The bill was hardly perfect, which meant a lot of the voting on the margins defied conventional wisdom. Some traditional critics of Israel voted against the bill over language, and still others rejected the bill because it proscribed a US-imposed solution.

The “gang of four” stood as four Democrats opposing the resolution, and did so because the bill’s final version removed any mention of settlements, of Israel being an occupying power, and watered down language about the two-state solution at the behest of more centrist Democrats.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What is really worrying me about Israel right now, is a new draft proposal, conjured up by Netanyahu and Pompeo, which I am certain, Pompeo is going to present, hurriedly to Congress, and push it through to get it passed, before their last day of this session (and I find this ironically amusing), which is Friday the 13th.

This bill Proposed US/Israeli Defense Treaty Gaining Steam after Pompeo/Neetanyahu MeetThe article goes on to state:

"A proposed US-Israeli defense treaty is gaining steam after a meeting between Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu (currently representing an 'interim' government) and US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in Lisbon this week.

Speaking of the controversial defense pact, Netanyahu told reporters of the Wednesday discussion: “The meeting with Pompeo was critical for Israeli security,” and added, “We agreed to promote a defense pact.”

However, such a controversial pact wold have a long way to go in the domestic politics of both nations, considering it would commit the United States to war to defend Israel. This also at a time when Israel has frequently attacked what it deems 'Iranian targets' inside Syria and Iraq in what both countries have condemned as acts of brazen aggression."

I have a deep concern that such an act may well get placed as a rider, or amendment, to a larger, "gotta pass this one" bill", and become law, before it has a chance to be seen for what it is, in the cold, cruel light of morning; a commitment to defend Israel, no matter what it has done, and no matter how wrong it was in doing so, and which may give Netanyahu another chance to "ride herd" on the Israeli government as Prime Minister, even with those corruption charges hanging over his head.

Russia Says Will Respond to U.S. on Missile Deployment

Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Friday that Russia will not hesitate to respond to any new deployment of missiles by the United States.

"We will have a mirror reaction", Lavrov said. "Every step will have a Russian reaction," Lavrov said at a news conference in Rome with his Italian counterpart, speaking through an Italian interpreter.

Russia has proposed a moratorium on the deployment of short and intermediate-range nuclear missiles in Europe after the Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF) banning such a move formally ended in August.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

(Sigh) Mr. President, and Secretary Pompeo; a word, please, gentlemen.

Were I you, I would absolutely believe, precisely, every word
Sergei Lavrov said here; in making this statement, the guy is about as serious as is a heart attack, and did not utter these words just to hear himself speak.

Right now, I think that BOTH of you need to check your collective egos at the door; sit down; and do some real negotiating here.

Neither this country, nor the world, needs to see a massive, tit-for-tat, arms buildup between Russia and the US, which may well ultimately see war between these countries, which could potentially spread, like a brushfire, uncontained, over the entire world.

Whether couples intertwine beneath the Eiffel Tower's famed arch or etch their initials into a lock on the Ponts des Arts bridge, the joyous atmosphere of love envelopes the city, but Paris's vaunted alleyways and roundabouts might tell a different story if streets could talk.

FAA Slaps Boeing With $3.9 Million in Civil Penalties Over Subpar Aircraft Equipment

Aircraft maker Boeing is facing more than $3.9 million in penalties from the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) after the company allegedly neglected to adhere to its own quality assurance system before installing “nonconforming components” on some 133 aircraft.

The FAA announced Friday that Boeing’s negligence in airworthiness certification and installation of subpar aircraft equipment may result in a total of $3,916,871 in civil penalties from the federal government.

According to the administration, slat tracks processed by Southwest United Industries (SUI) on June 29, 2018, and shipped to Spirit AeroSystems Inc. were ultimately delivered to Boeing for installation on its 737-series aircraft, despite the components failing a strength test.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And yet... no one who signed off on doing this, ever, ever goes to jail.

Those who read this site understand that I abhor war as a way through which the US government gets what it wants.

That being said, every time one of our military is dependent on aircraft to do their mission, it must be up to professional standards, which cannot be allowed to lag.

Two Federal laws have to come into place, to "cure the problem", as draconian as they may sound.

First, no military-industrial complex company, or sub-contractor to such a company, should never, ever be able to contribute to a Presidential campaign, ever.

Familiarity does breed contempt, and when a manufacturer thinks that they can "get away with" providing shoddy product to our military, because they play golf with our country's President, this can never be allowed to happen again.

Secondly, signing off on "loosened" safety standards, needs to become a criminal corporate offense, and whoever signed off on this, should be criminally charged; tried, and convicted by a jury of their peers, and shuffled off to a prison which is the polar opposite of a "Club Fed."

As extreme as these actions may sound, if these laws save the life of even one of our military personnel, they will have done their job.

DHS WANTED TO ADD US CITIZENS TO THE LONG LIST OF PEOPLE SUBJECTED TO MANDATORY FACE SCANS AT AIRPORTS... BUT HAS BACKED DOWN FOR NOW

We knew the DHS would get to this point eventually. Since the beginning of its biometric scanning program rollout, the DHS has planned on adding US citizens to the list of people forced to trade their faces for air travel privileges. So far, the program has been limited to suspicious foreigners (which is all of them, including those here on visas), but a recent filing -- caught by Zack Whittaker at TechCrunch -- says flying in the United States would soon require adding yourself to the government's facial recognition databases.

Homeland Security wants to expand facial recognition checks for travelers arriving to and departing from the U.S. to also include citizens, which had previously been exempt from the mandatory checks.

In a filing, the department has proposed that all travelers, and not just foreign nationals or visitors, will have to complete a facial recognition check before they are allowed to enter the U.S., but also to leave the country.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am a little more than stunned at this; I am a Christian pacifist activist, constantly exhorting her government to behave in a moral, responsible manner, and never, ever advocate violence.

And my only tools here are logic, and responsible linking and posting.

So folks, why me?!?

Because logic....doesn't run either US domestic or foreign policy, money does.

And so how does that play out in this country?!?

Let me count the ways...

IF logic were the watchword of this government, every kid coming out of high school would be literate, nummerate, and very capable of critical thinking.

That this does not happen, is done deliberately, in order to create a permanent underclass, for the rest of us to "have to take care of"for the rest of their lives.

Because they are incapable of reason, and are dependent upon government services, they are more easily swayed toward a certain end by government propaganda, and that ... is just where the US government wants them to be.

If logic were the watchword of this government, our money would be backed by something of intrinsic value, which at the moment, it is not, and has not been since Nixon took the US off the gold standard in 1971. Nixon's Colossal Monetary Error; the verdict 40 years later.

If logic were the watchword of this government, there would be no "pay to play" corruption schemes, because the finances of ALL Federal government officials would be put into a blind trust for the duration of their service.

And finally, if logic were the watchword of this government, there would be no more hegemonic wars to attempt to keep the value of US paper money in tact; and there are countries around the world which are leaving the US dollar in droves, toward other "baskets" of currencies, particularly the BRICS nations; Russia and China are becoming "fiscally allergic" to doing any business transactions in the US dollar, and are working diligently to ensure that the divorce from the US dollar is ultimately final, and complete.

Russia's bid to ditch the US dollar is working slowly, but obstacles remain.

Diteching the US dollar emerges as popular 2019 Market Fix Call.

And to all those "alphabet soup agency" personnel tasked/cursed with reading this site, please remember; at best, I am, simply, just a very minor annoyance,and the polar antithesis of a "threat."

Unfortunately, the real "threat" to this country, comes from how those in the Bowels of Power in DC, who choose to use the power of its military to enmesh the world with endless wars, expropriating natural resources to which the US and its corporate money junkies have absolutely no moral right, and slaughtering those people who have the misfortune to live over, or around, those resources.

And I have to wonder; will those in the Federal Government, also have to have their faces scanned at the airport, before they can get on a plane?!?

I would almost be willing to bet, that the short answer to that question, would be, "HELL, no!!""
