SAUDI DETAINS 'THOUSANDS' FOR MONTHS WITHOUT TRIAL: HRW

Saudi Arabia has detained thousands of people for up to a decade without trial, Human Rights Watch said Sunday, slamming the country's powerful crown prince for the "arbitrary detentions". Official data from the interior ministry, analysed by HRW, showed that authorities had detained 2,305 people for more than six months -- some for over a decade -- without referring them to court.

Karl Marx Was Rothschilds' Third Cousin

Karl Heinrich Marx (5 May 1818 - 14 March 1883), was a 19th century Jewish political ideologue who presented himself to the world as a journalist and economist. He is best known for subverting the nascent Socialist movement, likely as an agent of his cousin Rothschild; and on instructions from his mentor Moses Hess, creating a supposedly "scientific" theory known as Marxism.

Marx came from a long line of Jewish rabbis. He lived in Dean Street, London in squalor. He used to visit the Red Lion Pub at Great Windmill Street, Soho where he and Friedrich Engels were asked to write what became the Communist Manifesto. His best known work is the book Das Kapital, which fails to mention that money is printed out of thin air and by his cousins, the Rothschilds.

Mid-2018: America’s 2nd Revolution for Independence will win with: 1) Facts all on our side, 2) Teamwork, 3) Faith

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

America’s first revolution for independence had three stages:
1. Decades of public awakening to their own government using We the People as colonized work animals to maximize a .01% profits. Founders spoke and wrote, government denied and lied, and most Americans were too busy to clearly embrace those facts.
2. War from 1775 to 1781.
3. Decades of recapture for the US to ironically become the world’s most dangerous and harmful illegal rogue state empire.

Welcome to mid-2018 (more on current status here):
1. All facts on the side of We the People to prove a lying, Orwellian-illegal .01% US rogue state empire.
2. Awakening Americans to these facts, but with central questions: will we win? Do we have enough teammates? What strategies can win?
3. Appropriate perspective and humor of we simple humans thrown into this ridiculously challenging cosmic “game.”

Special Counsel Tells Federal Court Rosenstein Investigative Scope Was Detailed in Super-Secret Verbal Instructions…

It is only now coming to light how Asst. Attorney General Rod Rosenstein essentially appointed the Special Counsel to take over the counterintelligence investigation originally begun by the FBI in 2016. Also previously unknown: part of the initiating mandate included the special counsel being granted use of a sketchy FISA Court Title-1 surveillance warrant initially applied against Carter Page in October 2016.

UK drones firing organ-destroying ‘vacuum bombs’ on the rise in Syria - FOI request reveals (VIDEO)

The UK is ‘indiscriminately’ using thermobaric missiles as part of its ongoing air war in Syria, a Freedom of Information (FoI) request has revealed.
The Ministry of Defence (MoD) admitted, for the first time, using thermobaric weapons during strikes carried out by Royal Air Force MQ-9 Reaper drones during missions in January and February, in response to the FoI request by anti-war campaign group Drone Wars UK.

Thermobaric weapons, known colloquially as “vacuum bombs,” differ from conventional munitions - which cause damage by spreading shrapnel - as they create a high-temperature explosion with an extremely powerful blast radius. The pressure created causes severe internal damage to the organs of people caught in the blast radius.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So the British military and government haven't stopped using these bombs; they just redefined them.

More proof positive that the British Prime Minister May and MOD Gavin Williamson, have collectively had their conscience surgically removed.

BREAKING: Lisa Page And Another Comey Advisor Resign From FBI

Two key figures in the FBI during the reign of former FBI Director James Comey resigned on Friday as an Inspector General report looms.

One of the aides was Lisa Page, who carried on an affair with FBI agent Peter Strozk as the two exchanged text messages with each other denigrating President Donald Trump. The two discussed ways to prevent him from being elected and contingency plans in case he was, The New York Times reported.

“I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in Andy’s office — that there’s no way [Trump] gets elected — but I’m afraid we can’t take that risk,” Strzok wrote to Page in a text message on Aug. 15, 2016. “Andy” was a reference to former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe.

“It’s like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you’re 40,” he said.

“OMG THIS IS F***ING TERRIFYING,” she wrote to Strozk on Election Day.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Now, if Meuller and Sessions can be fired, or resign, for their politicization of the FBI, that would be another two very positive moves as well!!

BRITAIN'S GREAT FIREWALL BLOCKS ACCESS TO OFFICIAL DISNEY SITES, INTERNET SAFETY GUIDES, VPNS, AND CODING SITES FOR KIDS

In the decade since the UK rolled out its Great Firewall, the project of somehow dividing the entire internet into "good" and "bad" (or even "all-ages" and "adult") has run into a series of embarrassing gaffes, blocking rape crisis sites while letting through all sorts of ghastly porn -- and at every turn, the Conservative government's response has been to double down on internet censorship, expanding it from a parental filter to an opt-out porn filter, whose biggest backers have repeatedly demonstrated their technical incompetence.

It's not surprising that the loudest voices clamouring for an accurate and comprehensive list of all the world's adults-only material are also technological incompetents -- the UK porn firewall is a classic example of the "nerd harder" school of technology policymaking, in which a politician insists that the reason that all the technical experts have called their plans unworkable is that they're just not nerding hard enough.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is becomming rapidly, painfully apparent, that the words "technologically capable" and "UK government", can no longer be used in the same sentence.

US AIR FORCE REVEALS LOCATIONS WHERE SECRETIVE B-21 STEALTH BOMBER WILL BE DEPLOYED

The B-21 Raider - the US Air Force's secretive, next-generation, long-range stealth bomber - will be deployed to three US air force bases for testing once it finally rolls off the production line some time during the middle of the next decade, according to Sputnik.

The bomber, which was once known as the Long Range Strike Bomber (or LRS-B), will be deployed at the Whiteman Air Force Base in Missouri, the Ellsworth Air Force Base in South Dakota and the Dyess Air Force Base in Texas.

US Air Force Secretary Heather Wilson explained that, since these bases have hosted older American bombers before, they would be well-suited to host the Raider.

Details about the B-21, including the cost of the program and how much the government has already been spent on R&D are shrouded in mystery. Indeed, the Pentagon has said that it could tip its hand to America's enemies just by revealing how much the bomber cost.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If there ever was a country on the face of the planet (except for, perhaps, Israel) which desperately needs a department of peace, and right the hell now, it is the Unhinged, Surveilled State of Amerika.

THE BIG LIE ISPS ARE SPREADING IN STATE LEGISLATURES IS THAT THEY DON’T MAKE ENOUGH MONEY

In their effort to prevent states from protecting a free and open Internet, a small handful of massive and extraordinarily profitably Internet service providers (ISPs) are telling state legislatures that network neutrality would hinder their ability to raise revenues to pay for upgrades and thus force them to charge consumers higher bills for Internet access. This is because state-based network neutrality will prohibit data discrimination schemes known as “paid prioritization” where the ISP charges websites and applications new tolls and relegate those that do not pay to the slow lane.

In essence, they are saying they have to charge new fees to websites and applications in order to pay for upgrades and maintenance to their networks. In other words, people are using so much of their broadband product that they can’t keep up on our monthly subscriptions.

Nothing could be further from the truth.

YEMENI REBELS BEGIN ATTACKING SAUDI OIL INFRASTRUCTURE: YOU KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS

The Houthi rebels in Yemen, officially known as Ansurallah, have vowed to intensify rocket attacks on Saudi Arabia’s critical oil infrastructure, warning that they are now manufacturing their own ballistic missiles to achieve those aims, the Financial Times reports.

The threat comes at a time when Houthi attacks on Saudi Arabia have begun to increase. Just this Saturday, Saudi Arabia’s air defense system intercepted four ballistic missiles over the southwestern region of Jizan. The debris of those missiles reportedly killed one person. Just a week prior, two other missiles were launched at the Saudi Arabian Oil Company (Aramco) facilities on the Red Sea.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation: the US government and military is going to double down in this illegal and immoral war, and Yemen may soon be getting carpet bombed for its insistence that the Saudis get out.

FBI CHAOS: COMEY CAUGHT IN LIE OVER FLYNN INVESTIGATION

Quite a bit of FBI-related news broke late Friday;

– A newly unredacted section of a House Intel Committee report reveals that former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe told Congressional investigators that the FBI had virtually no case against Mike Flynn

– The same report reveals that James Comey contradicted himself during a recent interview with Bret Baier

– Comey, McCabe and then-Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates and Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney General Mary McCord gave the committee “conflicting testimony”

– Anti-Trump FBI “Lovebird” Lisa Page (with whom Peter Strzok was having an affaird) has flown the coop, tendering her resignation on Friday

– One of Comey’s closest confidants, former FBI top lawyer James A. Baker also resigned Friday

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The degree to which this government has become a corrupt, partisan mess, apparently has no boundaries whatsoever.

I am disgusted with the "dump Trump" mentality here, because in all the feeding frenzies in the bowels of power in DC, the needs and concerns of We the People, are getting totally ditched.

This is NOT the way a democratic republic is supposed to behave; not at all.

CA SCHOOL MURAL FEATURES TRUMP’S BLOODY, DECAPITATED HEAD ON A SPEAR

Parents and other community members in Chula Vista are fuming over a mural at the MAAC Community Charter School that depicts an Aztec warrior putting a spear through President Donald Trump’s decapitated, bloody head.
KFMB reports:

MAAC Charter, chartered by Sweetwater Union High School District, touts itself as a community school that offers students a unique curriculum in which students learn traditional subjects in relation to real-world issues.

Director Tommy Ramirez says this mural was a part of Battlegroundz, an annual event which highlights the urban art form of street murals to raise money to provide scholarships for seniors.

The mural was among many colorful, spray-painted works on a wall along the back of the school. It depicts an Aztek warrior with a purple skull and tiger helmet adorned with feathers, clutching a spear in his right hand with the severed head of Donald Trump.

“It’s art, but I don’t think it should be there,” parent Marisol Alvarado told KUSI.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Apparently, the alleged "educators" at this school believe that perception ...has to equal reality.

President Obama, and his wife, Michelle, were perceived as the consummate embodiment of "cool"; yet, his authorization of war crimes against the Yemeni people in collusion with the Saudi monarchic dictatorship, coupled with increased US military activities in Iraq and Afghanistan,including extrajudicial assassinations, did not fit that "cool" personna.

Therefore, was he, in essence, given a blank check, both by the alleged media in this country, plus Congress, to do pretty much whatever it was he wanted, including the assassination of Libya's President, for his "crime" of being ready to introduce a gold-backed dinar as the country's national currency?!?

The short answer is, absolutely, yes.

Now, I will grant you, that President Trump on many an occasions, does come off as rather a "blunt instrument", who has become thoroughly absorbed by this country's warmongering military/industrial complex, and truly resembles a ventrilloquist's dummy for Israel's Prime Minister Netnayahu, when it comes to Middle Eastern foreign policy.

And then, there is his upcoming meeting with Kim Jung Il, to discuss denuclearization of the Korean peninsula.

Color me hopeful here.

But I have to ask myself; do Tommy Ramirez' students understand, at all, what President Trump's predecessor did, and what the ultimate ramifications of President Obama's actions have been, globally?!?

Or was he given a pass by this school district, just for having been "so cool:"?!?

I think that the answer here, is self-explanatory.

NSA triples spying rate on Americans’ phone calls, collects 530mn records in 2017

The NSA has tripled its surveillance of Americans’ phone chatter, collecting over 534mn phone call records and text messages last year, despite pressure for more restrictions and transparency, a new official report has revealed.

Over the course of 2017, the National Security Agency (NSA) collected some 534,396,285 call detail records (CDRs), representing a dramatic increase over the previous year when, the agency gathered details of 151,230,968 calls, according to the report released by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI).

Hoisting the false flag

BRAVE GUATEMALAN air force pilots rebelled against a leftist regime in 1954 and used their planes to bomb the regime’s bases. Army commanders also rebelled; Guatemalans could hear them directing troop movements over the radio. Finally these patriots won their revolution. The United States trumpeted their victory around the world.

This was a “false flag” operation — staged by one force but made to look as if someone else did it. Planes that bombed targets in Guatemala were painted with Guatemalan air force insignia, but the pilots were CIA contractors. Radio messages about troop movements had been pre-recorded at a CIA base in Florida. A revolution that seemed to be emerging from one country, Guatemala, was actually the project of another, the United States.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is why I am very concerned about a potential false flag to be blamed on Iran, as the justification to attack it, in light of current movements by the Israeli government and its mouthpiece, the Unhinged, Surveilled States of Amerika, which make me think that an attack against Iran may well be imminent.

Mid-2018: ‘Tyrant Trump’ not ‘Animal Assad,’ 25,000 sealed federal indictments and Q-Anon’s promises, accepting Life’s timing for justice/truth in wise co-creation

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*
We’re now in the middle months of 2018. With 41 years of civic activism, here are three points I offer for public consideration:

1. Ongoing Orwellian-illegal US rogue state empire apparently continues to neo-colonize Syria and Iran. Apparently.
2. ~25,000 sealed federal indictments means either victory for We the People, victory for the .01%, or just another psyop of the empire.
3. We simple humans can, and should, accept the obvious limitations we have to only and always harmonize with Life/God/All’s timing in our co-creative self-expression for truth and justice. It’s just stupid to tell Life/God/All what should and shouldn’t exist as humble guests on Earth.

An American Mother’s Shocking Experience Sets A Dangerous Precedent

The world watched in outrage recently as officials in the UK prevented care for a severely ill child, going so far as to prevent his parents from taking him home to die.

We may think what happened to the family of Alfie Evans could not happen here in the U.S., but government agencies and the courts continue to trample the rights of citizens – bringing us closer and closer to becoming a socialist nation.

If you think it cannot happen here, think again – one American mother’s recent experience has people outraged and should have all of us deeply concerned.

The evidence is crystal clear that the shooting were not “accidental.” The order to shoot was given on the scene and given that the commanders were never investigated or charged, the only possible assumption is their orders came from higher up.

A terror campaign waged against civilians by a criminal government.

Texas Woman Uses Gun To Keep Shovel-Wielding Intruder At Bay

A man with a shovel threatening you is a pretty scary thing for most people. I’d imagine it would be especially so for a woman, considering the muscle mass difference between the average man and the average woman. It’s often enough that a man could kill a woman with his bare hands. Give him a shovel to use as a weapon, and it’s even worse. Unless you’re the kind of Texan woman who understands that firearms are the great equalizers.

Now EDF customers are hit with a £90 fee just for paying by cash or cheque after the firm introduces a price hike which will hit 550,000 households

Customers will now be forced to hand over an extra £90 a year for gas and electricity from EDF – just for choosing to pay by cheque or cash.

The firm is hiking the charge for those who pay quarterly for both gas an electric by an inflation-busting 15 per cent – £12 – to £90 if they do not settle their bills by direct debit.

The rise will hit 550,000 households, including elderly customers who rely on paying bills by cheque or cash.

'Shocking' electricity bills spark concern about smart meters in the Upstate, but Duke says they're accurate

When Gena Marshbanks opened her February power bill, she got a high-voltage jolt of surprise. Her charges from Duke Energy had more than doubled, she said.

"It was mind-shocking," said Marshbanks, a Berea resident.

Another Berea resident said her recent bill also more than doubled.

A man in Pickens County, meanwhile, said his electricity charges had almost tripled.

They're among local residents blaming higher power bills on their new smart meters, the digital meters that transfer information about electricity usage through wireless technology to utility providers.

A spokesman for Duke Energy Carolinas said the smart meters are accurate — more accurate than the analog meters they have replaced.

Memphis utility service cut-offs near 130,000 last year; MLGW smart meters cited for spike

During 2017, the utility conducted 129,922 residential and commercial cutoffs, up 29 percent from 100,533 the previous year and a 44 percent increase from the 90,099 reported in 2015.

Several factors account for the increase, including mild weather last year that resulted in fewer days when MLGW observed a moratorium on cutoffs because of extremely hot or cold temperatures.

But a significant reason for the increase is that smart meters make it much cheaper, quicker and easier for MLGW to disconnect services when customers fail to pay their bills. Instead of sending a truck and employee to manually cut off services -- a process that can be delayed by weather and other issues -- the utility is able to do it remotely via smart meter.

Army Green Berets have been helping Saudi Arabian-led coalition fight Iranian-backed rebels in Yemen

U.S. military involvement in Yemen's civil war appears to be larger than originally thought.

A team of about a dozen Army Green Berets was sent to the country's border with Saudi Arabia in December, to aid the Saudi-led forces in their fight against Iranian-backed Houthi rebels, according to the New York Times.

Yemen has been in political disarray since 2015, when the Iranian-backed Houthis overthrew the president and took control of most of the western part of the country, including the capital, Sana'a.

Since then, a Saudi-led coalition has been locked in conflict with the rebels, as they work to reinstate President Abdu Rabbu Mansour Hadi.

According to U.S. officials and European diplomats interviewed by the Times, Army Green Berets have been aiding the Saudis in locating and destroying caches of ballistic missiles and launch sites that the Houthis have been using to attack Riyadh and other Saudi cities.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation: the US government and military are neck deep in the war crimes Saudi Arabia is perpetuating in Yemen.

This is a genocide, complete with the wanton killing of infants, children, women, and the elderly medically fragile, and it gets worse; now cholera (possibly weaponised) is spreading in Yemen, and the medical infrastructure desperately needed has, of course, been destroyed by the Saudis and their American counterparts.

The Saudis, again with American military assistance, have also blocked major Yemeni ports, meaning no food can get in, meaning horrendous deaths through starvation/ malnutrition are occuring in Yemen.

I frankly am profoundly uncomfortable being a citizen of a country whose leadership has absolutely zero moral issues with assisting other countries in the commmission of war crimes; unfortunately, Mike and I are too old, and too broke, to become citizens of more civilized countries which do not engage in these practices.

CENSORSHIP: Facebook Will Ramp Up ‘News Suppression’ Ahead Of 2018 Midterms

Facebook’s founder Mark Zuckerberg has admitted that his social media platform will ramp up “news suppression” ahead of the 2018 midterm elections. Although the term “news suppression” is being used, let’s call it what it is: censorship.

Zuckerberg will “dial up the intensity” of censorship in hopes that he can weaponize his social media platform to help elect leftists. Zuckerberg stated this week that the social media firm has plans to further crack down on “fake news” (news liberals don’t like) on the platform via “suppression” of certain news publications.

BuzzFeed News reported that Zuckerberg revealed that Facebook has been gathering data on certain publications by asking consumers how they feel about certain publications and their trustworthiness. Don’t be too shocked if YouTube and Twitter go ahead and do the very same thing. We already know Google suppresses search results based on a leftist bias.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Please, if you haven't already started, use existing alternatives to Facebook, Google, and Amazon, like those you see on the left hand portion of the website page, right below the chat room.

Right now, for their collective censorship of real news, that is important to all of us, these venues need to be immediately and consistently shunned.

Albert Edwards Spots The "Peak Bullshit" Indicator

Addressing rate differentials, Edwards picks up where his FX strategist colleague Kit Juckes leaves off every morning - and for much of the past year in sheer frustration - and notes that while for the first nine months of 2017, 2y interest rate differentials were becalmed and removed as a currency driver, "only in the final quarter of 2017 did the US 2y upward march resume, triggering a brief dollar rally (which aborted), but has now resumed in earnest."

One of the key features of this rise has been the explicitly stated resolution of the Fed to stick to its tightening schedule, irrespective of the weakness in equity prices. For much of this tightening cycle, the 2y rate has been anchored close to the Fed Funds rate due to the market?s lack of conviction that the Fed would fulfill its tightening promises as represented in its dot chart."

"Unaccountable" Pentagon Officials Have "Weaponized" Vetting Of Trump Appointees: WSJ

Nothing ends a Washington career like being branded an unacceptable national-security risk. That’s why officials adjudicating personnel-security cases must act in a mature, objective and nonpartisan fashion. But when it comes to vetting Trump appointees, they often aren’t.

Instead, security clearances are being weaponized against the White House by hostile career bureaucrats, thwarting the president’s agenda by holding up or blocking appointees.

Consider the case of Adam Lovinger. Mr. Lovinger is a highly regarded and politically conservative Defense Department official. In January 2017, the Trump administration made a “by name” request for him to serve as a senior director on the White House National Security Council.

Webmaster's Commentary:

NEW BIPARTISAN BILL COULD GIVE ANY PRESIDENT THE POWER TO IMPRISON U.S. CITIZENS IN MILITARY DETENTION FOREVER

ONE OF THE most outrageous acts of Barack Obama’s presidency was his failure to veto the National Defense Authorization Act for fiscal year 2012.

The fiscal year 2012 NDAA included provisions that appeared to both codify and expand a power the executive branch had previously claimed to possess — namely, the power to hold individuals, including U.S. citizens, in military detention indefinitely — based on the Authorization to Use Military Force passed by Congress three days after 9/11.

The New York Times warned that the bill could “give future presidents the authority to throw American citizens into prison for life without charges or a trial.” Not surprisingly, Obama’s decision generated enormous outcry across the political spectrum, from Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, on the right to Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., on the left.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I don't support "...Al Qaeda, the Taliban or associated forces" at all.

But at what point does telling the truth, as I see it, as a Christian pacifist activist, about US domestic and foreign policies, become... criminal?!?

And when telling the truth becomes criminal, and there is only one narrative in this country, that of the Federal government, which is constantly creating narratives to service its agenda (generally following the road of bombs, bullets, and destruction of lives, rather than honorable, moral, hard-won negotiations), what does this country become?!?

It becomes a criminal, dictatorial, dystopian banana republic, with a few "haves", but most of its population marginalized to extreme "have nots", barely able to feed itself, and a dark, but very true, manifestation of Orwell's "1984", on steroids!!

I don't want to see this happen; but how long can the independent media continue to speak out in this country before it is silenced, particularly if this legislation is passed?!?

Folks, this is really lousily crafted legislation, and deserves to die a quick, and humane, death, as it its fundamentals go against the grain of everything for which the United States of America, is supposed to stand.

DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE TRAINING EXERCISE TERRIFIES UNPREPARED TOTOWA, N.J. RESIDENTS

It started off as a well-kept secret, but the explosions and helicopters ended up giving it away.

Members of the U.S. Department of Defense were conducting training recently in a New Jersey neighborhood, and the result was plenty of residents with frayed nerves, CBS2’s Dick Brennan reported Wednesday.

Cellphone video captured the moment a helicopter flew above Totowa. There was excitement in the photographer’s voice, but that’s because the video was taken on the second night of action.

“I have never seen anything like this before,” resident Michael Melograno said.

Most of the residents on the block came running outside in panic. John Emmolo said his daughter called 9-1-1 to find out what was happening, but got a short answer.

“They said, ‘Well, you have to talk to state police about it,’” Emmolo said.

You see, to the Federal way of thinking, American citizens have devolved to simply herd stock, to pay taxes and produce soldiers for these never-ending wars in which the US government finds itself continually embroiled; nothing more.

And informing citizens before a night-time, live fire exercize is conducted, guaranteed to stoke fear in the hearts of those who don't know what is going on?!?

In the immortal words of the character in the TV series The Suppranos, "Fuggetaboutit!!"

AUSTRALIA’S BIGGEST BANK ‘LOST’ DATA OF UP TO 20MN CUSTOMERS & DID NOT INFORM THEM

The Commonwealth Bank of Australia has confirmed that it lost the personal financial histories of millions of its clients years ago but never informed them about it. It admitted to the incident only after media broke the story.
Australia’s largest bank lost the banking statements of as many as 12 million of its customers during a period between 2004 and 2014, according to BuzzFeed, apparently the first media outlet to report the matter. Further reports in the Australian media have suggested that almost 20 million bank account records were lost in the incident.

The potential privacy breach occurred back in 2016, when the bank’s subcontractor apparently lost several magnetic tapes containing clients’ personal information from 2000 to early 2016. Personal banking statements contain sensitive, private information that can provide a detailed picture of the financial and personal affairs of a person.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Were I a client of Commonwealth Bank of Australia, understanding this, and that the bank did not divulge what happened,, I would be closing out my account here, and opening up another bank account somewhere else, and right the heck now!!

Thousands of stolen artifacts forfeited by Hobby Lobby return to Iraq

Thousands of artifacts stolen from Iraq and smuggled out of the country have been returned to the Iraqi government, the Justice Department announced Wednesday.

A press release from the Department of Justice stated that approximately 3,800 artifacts were returned to the residence of Iraq's ambassador at a repatriation ceremony on Wednesday. The return of the artifacts comes after arts-and-crafts chain Hobby Lobby agreed to forfeit the artifacts as well as $3 million in civil penalties over the company's role in the smuggling scheme.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Absoflippinglutely unbelievable!!!

And Hobby Lobby defines itself as a "Christian company"?!?

What Makes Hobby Lobby a Chiristian Company?!? Hint:
it is not a greed of mysoginy thing

How is it at all Christian to loot priceless artifacts from Iraq, then sell them for profit, being complicit in destroying a Muslim country's history and heritage?!? If this is not greed, then I do not understand the term at all.

And of course, no one goes to jail; the elite rarely eat their own.

YouTube: Some Nootropics Channels Were ‘Removed Mistakenly’

“With the massive volume of videos on our site, sometimes we make the wrong call,” YouTube told Motherboard in a statement. “When it's brought to our attention that a video or channel has been removed mistakenly, we act quickly to reinstate it. We give uploaders the ability to appeal these decisions and we will re-review the videos.”

“It behooves us to use our enhanced brains to figure out what is going on and how to stop it.”

At least five channels were deleted in less than a week, prompting an outcry from the affected YouTubers and fears that the site was about to be purged of "smart drug" content. YouTube has ramped up moderation over the past six months in response to a wave of bad press that highlighted the prevalence of violent, offensive videos and conspiracy theories on the site. In March, the company started banning videos made to sell guns or demonstrate how to make guns or gun accessories.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Youtube and Facebook have become two of the most censoring entities known to humankind today, and many times very innapropriately censoring, or playing fast and loose with viewing numbers, as has happened to Mike and me, in terms of throttling numbers for various pro-peace music videos.

Just think of both those entities as yet another arm of the US government/intelligence complex, and figure out from there what you want to post, or what alternative sites you might like to use.

DHS EXPANDS POLICE SPYING BY ADDING SURVEILLANCE CAMERAS TO BUS STOPS

Not content with surveillance cameras on buses, the police state has now begun adding them to bus stops.

Last month an article in WTVR 6 revealed that the Greater Richmond Transit Center (GRTC) is installing more than one hundred surveillance cameras at bus stops.

What should really concern everyone is the amount of cameras being installed at each bus stop.

"Each of the 26 new stops, built to accommodate the bus line's need for more efficient transit, includes about four cameras, making for more than 100 new surveillance devices on the roughly 7.5-mile stretch of road..."

WTVR also revealed that police can use the cameras to spy on commuters 24/7.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This may, in and of itself, discourage mass transit, nationally, if a person has any other options available.

Welcome to the Unhinged, Surveilled State of Amerika; your papers, please!!

CIA EMAILS TO JOURNALISTS DON’T HAVE TO BE RELEASED TO PUBLIC, JUDGE RULES

Judge Colleen McMahon of the Southern District of New York ruled that the CIA does not have to release parts of five emails senior CIA officials sent to journalists from the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times and The Washington Post in 2012. At the time, the CIA was facing pressure over links it may have had to a Pakistani doctor who helped American forces hunt down Osama bin Laden.

The ruling came in a lawsuit filed by Adam Johnson, a freelance reporter, who was represented by a first amendment lawyer in New York City, Daniel Novack.

“The Director of Central Intelligence is free to disclose classified information about CIA sources and methods selectively, if he concludes that it is necessary to do so in order to protect those intelligence sources and methods, and no court can second guess his decision,” McMahon ruled.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is how the CIA attempts to create narrative, and "guide" the current course of history toward that narrative; this is also why the Independent Media is more important and precious to making informed decisions than ever.

JON RAPPOPORT: PSYCHIATRY AND THE GREAT FRAUD

THERE ARE NO DEFINITIVE LABORATORY TESTS FOR ANY SO-CALLED MENTAL DISORDER.

No defining blood tests, no urine tests, no saliva tests, no brain scans, no genetic assays.

And along with that:

ALL SO-CALLED MENTAL DISORDERS ARE CONCOCTED, NAMED, LABELED, DESCRIBED, AND CATEGORIZED by a committee of psychiatrists, from menus of human behaviors.

Their findings are published in periodically updated editions of The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), printed by the American Psychiatric Association.

For years, even psychiatrists have been blowing the whistle on this hazy crazy process of “research.”

Of course, pharmaceutical companies, who manufacture highly toxic drugs to treat every one of these “disorders,” are leading the charge to invent more and more mental-health categories, so they can sell more drugs and make more money.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am going to be able, as an American on Medicare and a Medicare supplement, to be able to see a personal care physician on Oahu, after a wait time of four and a half months.

And before I see her, I will make sure that I understand which pharmaceutical companies compensate her for prescribing their drugs. There is nothing I need from a standpoint of mental health, but in the spirit of full disclosure, I firmly believe that all this information should be disclosed to all patients getting medical care in the United States, so that they can make an informed, educated decision about taking a drug their doctor is getting compensated for prescribing, or asking for something else.

I was dealing with this a number of years ago with the same HMO, where one of the podiatrists to whose care I was assigned, used the words "off-book" prescription", which should have raised the hairs on the back of my neck, and caused them to tapdance.

It was later made public, that Pfizer was paying many physicians to prescribe this drug, and it is still a common practice today. Of course, no one went to jail for signing off on the practice; the elite rarely eat their own, and no doctor was punished.

While this is not illegal, as a form of passive income for physicians in the US, I find this practice as unethical as hell, when patients are not informed that Big Pharma compensates physicians for prescribing medications which may not be best suited to manage whatever condition the doctors are treating, because of this compensation.

This needs to change.

Giuliani Calls Feds "Stormtroopers," But In 1995, George H. W. Bush Quit NRA In Outrage After Its VP Compared Federal Agents To " Storm Troopers"

"I was outraged when, even in the wake of the Oklahoma City tragedy, Mr. Wayne LaPierre, executive vice president of N.R.A., defended his attack on federal agents as "jack-booted thugs." To attack Secret Service agents or A.T.F. people or any government law enforcement people as "wearing Nazi bucket helmets and black storm trooper uniforms - wanting to "attack law abiding citizens - is a vicious slander on good people..."

Israel Campaigns Against Global Free Speech

Alarmed at the rise of anti-Semitism and anti-Israeli sentiments on the internet, Israeli politicians recently called for nations around the world to enact legislation prohibiting criticism of Jews and Israel. Lobbying to outlaw global free speech is nothing new for Israel, however; it has been in the business of criminalizing speech for decades.

A Quick Thought On America’s Useless Trillion Dollar Military Industrial Complex

America is a country drowning in debt, slowly but surely, and the United States’ trillion dollar (annually) military-industrial complex, as Eisenhower put it more than half a century ago, is part of our national disaster. Before going all MAGA on me, just answer this question: when was the last time the US military defended the homeland? The answer is pretty simple if you know your history: in 1945. The sad truth is that the United States has world’s largest (and best funded) army, yet realistically speaking, it has no (military) enemies. No nation on Earth even comes close to having the capabilities of invading the US, and no desire to do so, or at least that’s how I view the world in 2018. Again, realistically speaking, the US military would do just fine with 20% of its actual budget.

Why Can’t the World’s Best Military Win Its Wars?

“Full spectrum dominance” was the watchword in a 2000 document, “Joint Vision 2020” (updated from a 1996 version), which the authors described as a “conceptual template” for the U.S. military’s evolution over the two decades to come. Its language was even more hubristic than that slogan suggests: “a force that is dominant across the full spectrum of military operations – persuasive in peace, decisive in war, preeminent in any form of conflict… prepared to win across the full range of military operations in any part of the world… [with the ability] to defeat any adversary and control any situation across the full range of military operations.”

Defeat any adversary? Control any situation?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As a Christian pacifist activist, I would very much appreciate it if this country tried to achieve its geopolitical goals with hard-won, intelligent, and morally honorable negotiations rather than through wars.

Unfortunately, the leadership of this country has gotten drunk on the smell of its own propaganda, and is both morally, and intellectually, slack, when it comes to finding other solutions to its perceived geopolitical challenges than war; I am very sorry to have to say this, but it is the God's truth right now.

The US government is riding herd over an empire in decline, and doing just what every empire, at this point in its devolution, does; fighting back with every bit of fire power at its descretion to prevent the inevitable. It may be able to postpone its demise, somewhat, but not prevent it.

Like everything else on this planet, empires have a life cycle; a beginning, a middle, and an end; we are very close to that end, at this moment in history.

Did John Bolton Leak Intelligence To Sabotage a Trump-Kim Deal?

The still-unscheduled Donald Trump-Kim Jong Un summit offers the opportunity for a denuclearization deal that would avoid a possible nuclear war, but that potential deal remains vulnerable to a hostile corporate media sector and political elites in the United States. At the center of this hostility is national security adviser John Bolton, who’s not just uninterested in selling a denuclearization deal to the public. He’s working actively to undermine it.

Strong circumstantial evidence indicates that he leaked intelligence to a Washington think tank sympathetic to his views in order to generate media questioning about the president’s announced plan to reach an agreement with North Korea’s leader.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

John (never met a war in which he wouldn't love to get the US military involved) Bolton is vehemently anti-peace, no matter how that peace may positively affect the daily lives of We the People.

And yes, President Trump seems to be moving in the right direction here, but Bolton will do his level best to scuttle the deal, no matter what it takes.

US plan of last push against ISIS raises specter of Syria partition

Announcing the start of military operations against the remaining strongholds of Islamic State, the US State Department included some pointed language, hinting at de facto partition of Syria, analysts tell RT.
“The days of ISIS controlling territory and terrorizing the people of Syria are coming to an end,” State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said on Tuesday.The operations will be conducted by the US-led coalition and local partners, including the Kurdish-majority Syrian Democratic Forces.

The US will also work with Turkey, Israel, Jordan, Iraq and Lebanon to “secure their borders” from Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL), Nauert said. This is intriguing, because the only remaining IS presence is near the Iraqi border, with a pocket south of Damascus currently being cleared out by Syrian government forces.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Neither the US nor Israel, are finished in Syria yet; not by a long shot.

Putin Tries Adding Weight To Iran Conflict With U.S.

Emmanuel Macron and Angela Merkel have an ally in Russia. When it comes to Washington (and Tel Aviv's) penchant for calling foul on the Iranian nuclear deal, the two largest economies in the eurozone can count on Vladimir Putin to stand in their corner.

Putin reiterated Russia's position that the Iranian nuclear deal made by former president Barack Obama is "of paramount importance for ensuring international stability and security" and must be "strictly observed by all parties," the Kommersant business daily reported on Tuesday.

Putin reportedly discussed the Iranian nuclear power deal with Israeli leader Benjamin Netanyahu, who just hours before had come out with his own intelligence agency's report alleging evidence that the Islamic Republic was indeed enriching uranium for military use and not just for energy use. The report said that Israel initiated the call.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF Israel goes to war against Iran, for allegedly "lying" about its nuclear weapons program, the entire world will most likely be sucked into this war, with Iran, Russia, and China on one side, and the US, Saudi Arabia, Israel, and NATO on the other.

There are times when the interests of Israel and the US government align; this is not one of those times, and President Trump is a consummate fool, if he decides to pull out of the P5+1 deal, as a prelude to this war.

I hope Russia's President Putin did mention to Israel's Prime Minister Netantahu, that should such a war happen, based upon Israel's lies about Iran's alleged nuclear weapons, there will be costs incurred by Israel, which may well be devastating to the country's potential for further existence.

Such a war, again, based on lies to control Iran's oil, and the currency in which it is sold, just as happened with Iraq, will break the Unhinged, Surveilled state of Amerika, morally, economically, and politically.

The US military, at this time in its history, doesn't have the money; the manufacturing; the weaponry; or the troop strength to insure a positive outcome against the forces which will be martialled against it.

Yes, the US government spends a lot of money for its weaponry; what it gets, is, generally, late, with horrific cost overruns, and many times obsolete upon delivery, or doesn't work as advertised.

I give you the Lockhee-Martin F-35 as an example here.

Should such a war happen, look for a return of the draft in the US, but this time, the process will be going after both our young men and our young women. There may well be massive riots against it, which the US government will put down with extreme prejudice. It is possible that the Constitution and Bill of Rights will be suspended, and martial law will be invoked.

WIKIPEDIA: OUR NEW TECHNOLOGICAL MCCARTHYISM, PART 1

Today, the internet, often thought of as our world's "final frontier" for free thinkers and the flow and exchange of ideas and information, is seriously ill. It has been systemically infected by ideological viruses, memes of information intent on poisoning freedom of expression that we take for granted every time we use Google or visit Facebook, Youtube and now the online encyclopedia Wikipedia. Censorship is not limited to the governments' attempts to silence dissent. Yet when it succeeds, society is greatly hindered because people no longer have easy access to the whole truth. Censorship is one of the most effective ways to lessen people's freedoms and numb the faculties for critical thought. And because the media, and having access to news and a wide variety of interpretations and opinions is at our finger tips, it has become a critical part of our daily lives.

ACTIVIST HOLDS UP SIGN SAYING POLICE HATE FREE SPEECH, SO THEY ARREST HIM TO PROVE HIM RIGHT

A free speech activist went to his local police department to point out that they dislike free speech and the immediately proved his point by arresting him for it.

free speech

Stamford, CT — Free speech and liberty activist, Michael Picard had harmed no one, had not committed a crime, and was merely expressing his right to free speech by claiming the Stamford PD dislikes free speech. Indeed, within just a few minutes, the chief of police himself came out to prove Picard right.
Last Thursday, Picard held a sign that said, “F*ck Free Speech —Stamford PD,” merely attempting to point out the gross violations of the First Amendment committed by the department after they arrested another activist, Michael Friend, for holding up a different sign warning drivers of a distracted driving checkpoint ahead.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

For some time, the Unhinged, Surveilled state of Amerika has stopped being a democratic republic, and has morphed into a full-on, Code Napoleon Law, banana republic, where those people in the police department who swear "to protect and serve", are generally caught trampling on the very rights they have have sworn to uphold.

What happened here in Stamford, is representative of what is happening nation-wide; police running rampant against peaceful First Amendment demonstrators, in a manor completely at odds with American law.

There are moments when I am ashamed to be a citizen of this country, and this...was one of those moments.

Unfortuntately, we are too broke and too old to qualify for citizenship elsewhere, but if it were possible, I think we would both leap at the chance.

NETANYAHU SLAMS IRAN FOR 'SECRET NUKE PROGRAM,' WON'T SAY WHETHER ISRAEL DEVELOPED NUKES IN SECRET

On CNN Tuesday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu criticized Iran for allegedly working to develop nuclear bombs in secret, but refused to say whether Israel did the same (in violation of US non-proliferation law).

From The Daily Caller:

“A ‘yes-no’ question for you,” [CNN’s Chris Cuomo] said. “You know where I’m going with this. Does Israel have nuclear capabilities and nuclear weapons, yes or no?”

“We’ve always said that we won’t be the first to introduce it, so we haven’t introduced it,” Netanyahu replied.

“That’s not an answer to the question. Do you have them or do you not?” Cuomo asked.

“It’s as good an answer as you’re going to get,” Netanyahu said. “Iran said they don’t have this nuclear weapons program and Iran calls daily for the annihilation of my country. We don’t do that.”
Cuomo admitted Iran has a reputation for being dishonest but continued to press the prime minister about his country’s nuclear program.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Prime Minister Netanyahu, a word, please; on that last statement of yours, " “One thing is clear, Israel is not threatening the annihilation of any country.”, our BED (Bovine Excrement Detector) re-kitted, completely, and will have to be immediately replaced.

The next time this happens, sir, we will be left with no option, other than billing the Israeli government for its replacement, because the world knows ...you, and your government in Tel Aviv, are full of it!!

And I would like to add, sir, that every dollar, and every weapon, the US government gives to Israel is illegal, under the Syminton Amendment, and the Glenn Amendment

The Symington Amendment, and the Glenn Amendement

These amendments state quite clearly:

"The Foreign Assistance Act of 1961 was amended by the Symington Amendment (Section 669 of the FAA) in 1976. It banned U.S. economic, and military assistance, and export credits to countries that deliver or receive, acquire or transfer nuclear enrichment technology when they do not comply with IAEA regulations and inspections. This provision, as amended, is now contained in Section 101 of the Arms Export Control Act (AECA).

The Glenn Amendment (Section 670) was later adopted in 1977, and provided the same sanctions against countries that acquire or transfer nuclear reprocessing technology or explode or transfer a nuclear device. This provision, as amended, is now contained in Section 102 of the Arms Export Control Act (AECA)."

Please note that legally, Israel has no exemption from these laws, except for the reality that the Unhinged, Surveilled State of Amerika is not a country ruled by law, but a country ruled by corrupt individuals.

AMAZON ORDERS SIGNAL TO STOP USING AWS TO DEFEAT CENSORSHIP

Repressive autocracies like Egypt, Oman, and the UAE ban Signal and other encrypted messaging apps, using national firewalls to try to block their traffic; Signal evades these blocks by using "domain fronting," in which the service's cloud provider shows up as the origin of its traffic, forcing countries to block Google or Amazon to get at a single service hiding behind them.

The cloud companies don't like this; Google has terminated its domain-fronting service, prompting Signal to move to Amazon for its censorship-evasion cutout; now, Amazon has ordered Signal to cease using Amazon Web Services to defeat censorship or face having its account terminated.

There are legitimate reasons not to like domain-fronting; it allows both good actors (Signal) and bad actors (fraudsters, hackers, malware purveyors, spammers) to disguise the origin of their traffic.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

At was just a matter of time before Google and Amazon became instruments of government suppression; and we are right there, right now.

OIL REFINERY SPEWS 8.5 TONS OF CYANIDE GAS OVER LOW-INCOME COMMUNITY EACH YEAR

Recent tests have shown that an oil refinery in Denver called Suncor Energy has been spewing over 8.5 tons of cyanide gas over the low-income communities that surround it. Oddly enough, the refinery is exempt from disclosing their cyanide emissions to the public, but independent tests have shown their output of the gas to be astronomical.

In fact, according to Cross Community Coalition director Candi Cdebaca, air quality control officials actually gave the refinery a special permit that allows them to release levels of toxins that surpass recommended levels.

“It’s absurd to think state health officials would even consider granting permits to pollute more. The state health officials are completely failing to protect these neighborhoods. And they are disregarding the cumulative impact of the many pollutants in the area. The ideal would be we aren’t letting them put that into the air at all, and if they are, we would know how to respond,” Cdebaca said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is yet another demonstration of the reality that in 21st century Amerika, corporations are kings, and everyday people are just...expendable.

US JUDGE ORDERS IRAN TO PAY BILLIONS TO FAMILIES OF 9/11 VICTIMS

Tehran has been ordered by a US court to pay more than $6 billion to victims of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, despite the fact that most of the plane hijackers were Saudi nationals, and no direct link was ever found to Iran.
On Tuesday, a federal judge in New York found Iran, the country’s central bank, and the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps liable for the deaths of more than 1,000 people in the September 11 attacks. As a consequence, District Judge George Daniels ordered Iran and its entities to pay over $6 billion in compensation to the victims’ families.

The default judgment seeks compensation of $12.5 million per spouse, $8.5 million per parent, $8.5 million per child, and $4.25 million per sibling. The US could potentially retrieve the sum from billions of dollars in Iranian assets that were frozen in the US and Europe over the years. This is unlikely, however, as the ruling is seen as symbolic and unenforceable.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

More sound and fury, signifying absolutely nothing, other than heaping more scorn and demonisation against Iran ahead of 12 May, when President Trump makes the go/no go decision about decertifying Iran's compliance with the P5+1 accord.

And please remember; as of this moment, the IAEA team which has been certifying Iran's full compliance with the deal, says that they are still in complete compliance with it.

The last thing these people are...are idiots.

IF the US withdraws from the agreement, to placate Israel's Prime Minister Netanyahu, it will be a breathtakingly lousy moment in the history of the world, because Israel will probably haul off, and attack Iran directly, or attack its assets in Syria.

In fact, with Israeli police stating that they have enough info with which to indict Netanyahu on corruption charges, Israeli PM faces toughest political challenge, but is unlikely to go quietly,,he may in fact feel that a war with Iran, in Syria, or against Iran proper, may be his only options for deflecting a trial on corruption charges.

And if he thinks and feels that such a trial is imminent, he may well haul off far before the 12 May date, at which President Trump is to make the decision as to whether the US believes Iran in compliance with the P5+1 deal.

Of course, given that the world knows he may be going on trial for corruption, the optics will be horrible; but in order to save his own political skin from ruin, he may decide that a war, where hundreds of thousands of people may well die, is far preferable than having to defend himself in court.

This is simply the way the man thinks.

I would like to hope that he understands that the 6,000 lb gorilla, snoozing on the Bosendorfer grand in this situation... is Russia.

Russia has historically stated, and this comes from both civilian and military leadership, that should Iran be attacked, Russia will come to its aid militarily.

However, unfortunately, looking at Netanyahu's characteristic hubristic behaviour, I doubt that this will factor into his decision to attack either Iran, or Iran's assets in Syria, if he feels the coming trial is "too close for comfort."

HOW WESTERN MEDDLING AND A DUST BOWL DROUGHT IGNITED SYRIA’S CIVIL WAR

The reported “chemical attack” at Douma, Russia has claimed, was fake news. One U.S. news agency has now confirmed from the location of the reported attack that April 7, 2018 was an uneventful day in this Syrian city and not one single person in Douma corroborated the story of a chemical attack taking place.
It is the latest in a long series of false-flag reports generated about Syria by the United States and forces that oppose the government of President Bashar al Assad. This trickery dates back to at least 2006, when a WikiLeaks cable exposed U.S. political treachery at its very worst; calculated meddling designed to harm the government and population of Syria.

In this article we will review false revelations and calculated moves undertaken by politicians to undermine Syria’s government, which is designed to provide protection to religious minorities and freedom for people of all faiths, who lived securely in Syria until civil war broke out in 2011.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unfortunately, I fear that the dark spectre of US intervention in Syria is far from over, as indicated by the following report:


23 CIVILIANS KILLED IN SYRIA IN SUSPECTED US COALITION AIR STRIKES

As happened in Iraq, and most probably soon to happen against Iran, this is all about the control of Middle Eastern oil, and in what currencies it will be allowed to be sold.

And the other question which has to be asked is the following; how long will Russia allow this nonsense to continue, without lashing out, militarily?!?

HOMESCHOOLERS TURN OUT IN DROVES TO DEFEAT INTRUSIVE CALIFORNIA BILL

Don’t mess with homeschoolers: That’s the lesson California lawmakers, like their counterparts in Hawaii, learned last week when hundreds of homeschoolers and their allies descended upon Sacramento in opposition to intrusive legislation — and won.
At issue was a bill sponsored by Assemblyman Jose Medina, a Democrat, that “would have categorized the type of school on a form filed by private educators. One of the categories was homeschools. The state considers homeschools as private schools when it comes to state regulation,” reported GVWire.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Good on California homeschoolers!

But they are going to have to remain vigilant, because more laws of this nature are going to be introduced, to try to get the homeschooling concept to become illegal, because home schooled kids are, in large part, taught to think critically.

Critical thinkers are a danger to The State, because they can spot logic flaws, which do not benefit We the People, in a millisecond.

Under Cover of Iran, Netanyahu Just Took Three New Steps Toward Fascism

As the prime minister spoke, however, as a war-anxious nation and an attentive, approving White House hung on his every word, a little over 30 miles up the road, in Jerusalem, a mortal threat to Israel was being assembled under our very noses. In the Knesset, no less. A set of three time bombs, complex, deadly, radioactive.

Each of them a step toward annihilating Israel as we have come to know it. Each of them a step toward dictatorial rule, toward fascism. Each of them approved by – spurred by – Netanyahu himself.

Netanyahoo To Again Cry Wolf - But Something Bigger Is Up (Updated)

U.S. President Trump wants to end the nuclear agreement (pdf) with Iran and wants to eliminate Iranian forces in Syria which support the Syrian government. Something is being prepared to make that happen.

Last week General Joseph Votel, commander of CENTCOM - the U.S. military command for the Middle East, was in Israel. It was the first ever visit of a CENTCOM commander to Israel which usually works with the European command EUCOM.

Yesterday former CIA director and now Secretary of State Pompeo visited Israel. A few hours later Israel bombed two ammunition depots in Syria which are supposedly related to Iran. This was a clear attempt to provoke Iran into some reaction.

The Israeli defense minister Lieberman just visited Washington DC and only today came back to Israel.

When leadership from both the US and Israel are wracking up the frequent flyer miles to each others' capitals, I get ..... very nervous; and the current flurry of activity is no exception.

UN nuclear agency: ‘No credible indications’ of Iran nuclear activity after 2009

The United Nations's nuclear agency on Tuesday rejected claims from Israel's Benjamin Netanyahu that Iran's government is conducting nuclear weapons research in secret.

In an assessment released Tuesday, the International Atomic Energy Agency wrote that there is "no credible indications" to support claims that Iran was continuing its "coordinated" nuclear weapons program after 2009, The Associated Press reports.

Netanyahu made the claims Monday in a speech in Tel Aviv as part of his effort to urge President Trump to scrap the Iran nuclear deal, signed in 2015 under the Obama administration, which was meant to ensure Iran does not complete development of a nuclear weapon.

Critics say the deal is too weak and has led to Iran pursuing the weapons in secrecy.

On Monday, Netanyahu called the deal "terrible" and urged Trump to do the "right thing" and exit the agreement with Iran.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A memo to Israel's Prime Minister Netanyahu; you may be able to lie the President of the United States into contributing to a war against Iran, but this time, you cannot lie the American people into wanting such a war.

The US government and military going to war against Iran on a fabrication, just as it did against Iraq, which it declared to have "weapons of mass destruction", which it did not, was simply about controlling Iraq's oil, and in what internationally currency it would be sold; ultimately, the same will be true of Iran.

But to Netanyahu and Trump, I offer the following caveat from Sun Suu, from "The Art of War", paraphrased: soldiers must believe that they have the moral high ground on their side. The Iranians do, should such a war happen, because they are defending their country; the US, and Israel, will not.

And then, there is the 6,000 lb gorilla, snoozing on top of the Bosendorfer Grand; that 6,000 lb gorilla, right now, is Russia, whose military and political leadership have collectively vowed to protect Iran, should it be attacked militarily.

Were I Netanyahu and/or President Trump, I would be thinking about this very, very carefully right now, before either leader does something potentially catastrophic against Iran.

Israel ready to bomb Iran if necessary: Report

Israeli defense officials have told their American and Russian counterparts that if Iranian-backed forces attack Israel from inside Syria, Jerusalem will not hold back from retaliating with direct strikes against Tehran or other targets in Iran.

The officials delivered the message ahead of a national security statement expected Monday from Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in response to Iranian threats to hit Israel after recent strikes on Tehran-backed assets in Syria, according to a report by Haaretz, an Israeli newspaper.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation: look for a massive Israeli "false flag", to appear to have be created by the Iranian military against Israeli from Syria, and this war is off and running.

I would like to hope that Russian President Putin, in a conference call with Netanyahu, has completely disabused Netanyahu about pulling a stunt like this; however, one can never account for the ways in which Israeli hubris can lead to a catastrophe, as it well might under these circumstances.

And please note: such Israeli raids against Syria are against a soverign nation, which has invited Russian and Iranians there to help clamp down on Western-funded jihadists, are illegal under international law.

Syrian Army Conducts Intensive Air Strikes on Terrorists' Dens South of Damascus

Syrian state media reported Monday that the Syrian Army has conducted precision and intensive airstrikes on fortified militant positions in the Al-Hajar al-Aswad area to the south of Damascus.

According to SANA, Syria's state news agency, the Syrian Air Force carried out an intensive bombardment of fortified positions and infiltration routes used by terrorists in the area and inflicted heavy personnel and equipment losses upon them.

The reporter stressed that military operations against terrorist groups in the area will not stop until they are completely wiped out from the south of Damascus. At the same time, the Syrian government is beginning to implement the evacuation agreement reached Sunday with the jihadist group Tahrir al-Sham, also known as al-Qaeda in Syria.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Syria, with Russia's help, is turning the tide against these jihadists, many of whom were funded and trained by the US government, and other Westerm entities.

But color me extraordinarily nervous about just what the US and Israel are going to do at this point, and just how much nonsense Russia's President Putin is going to put up with, before he orders an escalation of Russian troops against US/Israeli raids.

U.S. CONFIRMS DELIVERY OF JAVELIN ANTITANK MISSILES TO UKRAINE

The United States has confirmed to RFE/RL its delivery of American-made, Javelin antitank missile systems to Ukraine in a move that is welcome in Kyiv but will almost certainly enrage Moscow amid a four-year conflict that pits Russia-backed separatists against Ukrainian national troops.

"They have already been delivered," a U.S. State Department official confirmed on April 30 in response to an RFE/RL query on the handover of Javelins.

A shipment of lethal aid would appear to deepen U.S. involvement in the simmering conflict and mark at least a symbolic victory for Ukraine in its effort to maintain Western backing in the ongoing conflict.

After months of heated debate in Washington and, reportedly, much reluctance on the part of U.S. President Donald Trump, the White House was said to have approved the Javelin sale in December.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And to add insult to injury, we see the following headline in whatdoesitmean.com:

As ATO Ends, joint forces operations are launched against Donbas

Both stories, taken together, do not augur well for peace in the region, and make the possibility of a Russian war against the US and NATO in Ukraine that much more potentially palpable.

Fr. Coughlin explains the Federal Reserve, 1940: This privately owned corporation 'thrives on misery' and is 'leading this country into chaos'

Fr. Coughlin begins "On December 23, 1913- 27 years ago- a Federal Reserve Act was approved by the Congress of the United States. This Act permitted bankers to establish a bankers' bank- or, to be more precise, 12 bankers' banks situated one in each regional division of the United States of America... In other words, the Federal Reserve Banking System is a privately owned corporation. It is not a Government owned corporation as some persons believe. ...It is both amusing and alarming to learn that not only some factory workers but also some professional and business men labor under the impression that the Federal Reserve banking system is a Government owned corporation."

Trump could let Pollard go to Israel in honor of embassy launch – report

US Donald Trump seems increasingly likely to attend the opening of the US Embassy in Jerusalem next month, and is thinking of allowing convicted spy Jonathan Pollard to come to Israel at the same time, a TV news report said.

The president, who has publicly said he is interested in attending, is being pressured to go to Israel for the ceremony by supporters and donors, Hadashot TV news reported Sunday.

Trump is also considering allowing Pollard, a former American intelligence specialist, to leave the US to come to Israel, the report said. Pollard served nearly 30 years for spying for Israel, and since being paroled in 2015 has been prohibited from leaving US soil, preventing him from moving to the Jewish state.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mr. President, what are you unable to absoflippinglutely not comprehend about what this man did to US intelligence, and how people died because of his actions?!?

Johnathan Pollard was one of the worst trators of the 20th century who deserved what he got.

Sir, I am asking you to please not go here, Mr. President.

WHY WE HAVE A SURVEILLANCE STATE

Increasingly, we live under the kind of comprehensive surveillance predicted by science fiction writers. But Palantir is just an arms merchant, not the architect of our brave new world. Like gun manufacturers, its products can be used for good or evil. I have always believed that moral responsibility lies with the wielder of weapons, not the manufacturers. (This is often expressed as “Guns don’t kill people, people kill people.”)

Peter Thiel’s choice to become an arms merchant rather than invest his considerable talents and fortune elsewhere is a fair question given his libertarian leanings. I have no insight into the answer. I would guess that he founded Palantir as an act of patriotism after 9/11, and it metastasized following the money, cash being the mother’s milk of the state, something the celebrated Alexander Hamilton deeply understood.

SURVEILLANCE IS NOT THE PROBLEM, BUT IT IS A SYMPTOM

POLICE CADETS QUIT, EXPOSE DEPT. FOR TRAINING COPS TO VIEW PUBLIC AS ‘COCKROACHES’ THEY’RE AT WAR WITH

It takes at least four years of college for an enlisted person in the military to become a military “officer,” which is quite a contrast from the mere nine months it takes for a police officer to earn the title. But according to a group of 10 former Austin Police Department recruits who wanted to become peace officers, just like the military, the Austin PD is training “warriors” instead of “guardians.”

The former recruits are now blowing the whistle and claiming that the type of mentality they encountered is not what they signed up for and is not representative of the greater Austin community. KVUE writes:

Summer Spisak, a 38-year-old former tech employee who participated in nine weeks of the eight-month academy last year, said instructors told her and other cadets they would “punch them in the face” if they said they wanted to be police officers to help people.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This mindset, coupled with frequent Israeli IDF training (which encourages peace officers to treat suspects the way Israel treats the Palestinians), has led to a real societal problem with the way police generally the treat people they are sworn to protect.

We are very lucky here on Oahu, that the cops are generally polite, respectful, and responsible. We have one HPD officer who lives very near where we do, and they are just a delight to be with.

President Donald J. Trump Proclaims May 2018 as Jewish American Heritage Month

"Jewish Americans have helped guide the moral character of our Nation. They have maintained a strong commitment to engage deeply in American society while also preserving their historic values and traditions. Their passion for social justice and showing kindness to strangers is rooted in the beliefs that God created all people in his image and that we all deserve dignity and peace. These beliefs have inspired Jewish Americans to build mutual-support societies, hospitals, and educational institutions that have enabled them and their fellow Americans to advance American society. Jewish Americans marched for civil rights in Selma and fought for the freedom of their brethren behind the Iron Curtain. Through their actions, they have made the world a better place..."

Say goodbye to Alexa and hello to gadgets listening to the voice inside your head

Controlling your gadgets by talking to them is so 2018. In the future, you won’t even have to move your lips.

A prototype device called AlterEgo, created by MIT Media Lab graduate student Arnav Kapur, is already making this possible. With Kapur’s device—a 3-D-printed plastic doodad that looks kind of like a skinny white banana attached to the side of his head—he can flip through TV channels, change the colors of lightbulbs, make expert chess moves, solve complicated arithmetic problems, and, as he recently showed a 60 Minutes crew, order a pizza, all without saying a word or lifting a finger. It can be used to let people communicate silently and unobtrusively with each other, too.

“I do feel like a cyborg, but in the best sense possible,” he says of his experience with the device, which he built as a research project.

WHY IS ISRAEL DESPERATE TO ESCALATE SYRIAN CONFLICT?

After seven years of utter devastation and bloodletting, a consensus has emerged among all the belligerents of the Syrian war to de-escalate the conflict, except Israel which wants to further escalate the conflict because it has been the only beneficiary of the carnage in Syria.

Over the years, Israel has not only provided medical aid and material support to the militant groups battling the Syrian government – particularly to various factions of the Free Syria Army (FSA) and al-Qaeda’s Syrian affiliate al-Nusra Front in Daraa and Quneitra bordering the Israel-occupied Golan Heights – but Israel’s air force has virtually played the role of the air force of the Syrian jihadists and has conducted more than 100 airstrikes in Syria and Lebanon during the seven-year conflict.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In the view of Tel Aviv, Syria must be neutralized before there can be a meaningful attack against Iran, primarily with American troops, and the costs borne in American blood and American money, which the US government does not have.

But the one question President Trump needs to ask himself, if he goes full-tilt buggie on Syria and Iran, by way of an invasion, and a greater war, is just what Russia's President Putin will do to respond to such acts.

And President Trump had better think long and hard about this, because today, the US military doesn't have the money; the weaponry; the manufacturing; or the troop strength to insure a positive outcome to a war against either Syria or Iran, or possibly both.

BUSINESSES WILL USE FACIAL BIOMETRICS TO CREATE THEIR OWN WATCH LISTS

All across the country businesses are being encouraged to use facial recognition to identify everyone.

Companies like DeepCam, have been been secretly working for three years, to create a facial recognition customer watch list system.

"After three years in stealth mode, DeepCam has released Retail by DeepCam,a system that will transform retail loss prevention. Retail byDeepCam is a plug-and-play system that drastically reduces retail shrink and slashes operational costs through a proprietary biometric-enhanced recommendation engine. "

How will DeepCam transform retail loss prevention?

DeepCam's selling points are instant recognition of bad actors and much more.

"DeepCam recognizes biometric signatures and suspicious behaviors so you can respond the moment bad actors walk through the door."

Soon businesses will use DeepCam's 'recommendation engine' to identify customers before they have stepped inside their store.

IN ‘BIZARRE’ TELEVISED EVENT, NETANYAHU PUSHES US TOWARD WAR WITH IRAN

In a “bizarre” performance that conjured memories of former national security adviser Colin Powell’s infamous weapons of mass destruction speech in 2002, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday theatrically deployed props and powerpoint slides in an attempt to distort facts and convince his “audience of one“—U.S. President Donald Trump—that Iran is failing to comply with the nuclear accord.

“Iran lied, big time, after signing the nuclear deal in 2015,” Netanyahu claimed from a stage in Tel Aviv, Israel, dramatically unveiling shelves of disks and binders that he insisted contain conclusive proof that Iran is still pursuing nukes.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As long as I have breath in me, I will peacefully continue to protest such a war, which is not at ALL in the interests of the American people, but Netanyahu's painfully obvious attempt, on completely fabricated evidence, to have America's military "neutralize" Iran for him, with all the costs being borne with American blood, and financed with US dollars.

Were I a betting woman, I would bet that President Trump will go along with this, as he has no intelligent alternate views on Iran, voiced to him by his cabinet, other than what Netanyahu spoon feeds him, which is fabrication after fabrication after fabrication.

The IAEA knows precisely where the site is which Netanyahu described in his tirade, and also knows that there is no secret nuclear program going on there; it is simply a lie, to attempt to get the American people to follow President Trump's lead on a war against Iran.

But after the Colin Powell speech about Iraq's "yellow cake uranium", and Saddam's WMDs, the American people are, hopefully, a lot more sceptical concerning what Netanyahu is willing to lie about to get a war started.

GOLDMAN FINED $110 MILLION FOR "IMPROPERLY" RIGGING THE FX MARKET

First Deutsche, then BNP, and now it's Goldman's turn to pay the Fed a token fee for making billions in manipulating the FX market from 2008 to 2013.

The Department of Financial Service announced on Tuesday that Goldman had agreed to pay the Federal Reserve $54.75 million, and an identical fine to the New York financial regulator, to settle claims that the bank allowed its foreign exchange traders to wrongly share customer information with traders from other global banks and engage in questionable conduct.

Furthermore, it appears that Goldman was the latest bank to participate in infamous FX rigging "chatoorms" which its traders used to discuss their positions on currency trades away from regulatory scrutiny.

The violation announced today stems from an investigation by DFS determining that from 2008 to early 2013, Goldman engaged in unlawful, unsafe and unsound conduct by failing to implement effective controls over its foreign exchange business.

Ron Paul: Baby Alfie, the Latest Victim of Omnipotent Government

Twenty-three-month-old Alfie Evans, passed away in a British hospital on Saturday. While the official cause of death was a degenerative brain disease, Alfie may have been murdered by the British health system and the British high court. Doctors at the hospital treating Alfie decided to remove his life support, against the wishes of Alfie’s parents. The high court not only upheld the doctors’ authority to override the parents’ wishes, it refused to allow the parents to take Alfie abroad for treatment.

In upholding the government’s authority to substitute its judgment for that of Alfie’s parents, the high court is following in the footsteps of authoritarians throughout history.

America's Jews Are Driving America's Wars

UPDATE: On the morning of September 21st Phil Giraldi was fired over the phone by The American Conservative, where he had been a regular contributor for fourteen years. He was told that “America’s Jews Are Driving America’s Wars” was unacceptable. The TAC management and board appear to have forgotten that the magazine was launched with an article by founder Pat Buchanan entitled “Whose War?” which largely made the same claims that Giraldi made about the Jewish push for another war, in that case with Iraq. Buchanan was vilified and denounced as an anti-Semite by many of the same people who are now similarly attacking Giraldi.

WW3 ALERT: Iran Threatens ‘Strikes Will Be Met With Force’ After US-led Syria Attacks - Mac Slavo

Iran has issued a chilling new warning to the United States an allied forces which allegedly coordinated an attack on Syria on Sunday. Iran’s supreme leader Ali Khamenei has warned that attacks on Iranian military bases by the US or its allies will not be tolerated and will be met with “firm force.”

Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, supreme leader of Iran, has launched a blistering verbal attack against the US in the wake of missile strikes on Syrian bases in Hama and Aleppo on Sunday night, according to The Daily Star. In a bellicose speech on Monday, Khamenei accused the US of causing a “regional crisis” in the Middle East by creating “instability” that has “brought misery to people.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

We the People are no longer in control of this government; the American deep state, and the military industrial complex are in complete control, no matter who sits at that desk in the Oval Office.

As a Christian Pacifist Activist, who fervently believes that the US should be resolving its geopolitical issues with moral, hard-won negotiations, rather than bombs and bullets, all I can do is witness, as I do at this blog, and pray that there will be some mechanism to stop what I see coming, which is a global war, with Iran, China, Russia on one side, and the US, NATO, Israel, and Saudi Arabia on the other.

Iran: The True Focal Point for the IMF-NATO Hegemony, by Jeremiah Johnson

The “Iranian problem” is one that was created by the United States and Britain decades ago. Mossadegh was removed from office when the Shah was inserted…that selfsame Shah who supported Anglo-American oil interests in his country until Ayatollah Khomeini sparked the Iranian Islamic Revolution in ’79. That revolution began the takeover of the U.S. embassy in Teheran and the hostage situation that effectively ended the Carter presidency (rather his actions to resolve it, such as Operation Desert One). President Reagan came in, the hostages were released, Iran and Iraq fought a bloody war, and relations with the U.S. were discontinued.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Absoflippinglutely unbelievable, but consistently predictable from this government, no matter who is allegedly guiding it as President.

Does President Trump think, for a millisecond, that Russia's President Putin will just hold hands with the Duma, and sing "Kumbyah" at a concerted set of US/Israeli airstrikes against Syria?!? I would respectfully suggest that this only will happen after pigs discover they are aerodynamic.

A war with Russia over Syria is as insane as it can possibly get, unless you factor in the war Netanyahu wants the US to fight against Iran, which would be another idiotic thing for this Administration to decide to do.

Unfortunately, just because something is the most ham-fistedly, pig-headedly stupid thing for the US government to do, is utterly no guarantee that it won't do it.

If President Trump goes for both of these wars (after an "alleged" terrorist false flag inside this country, or against American interests overseas most probably, or a cyber 9/11), look for the return of a military draft, supported by both parties, and the devolution to an even worse climate for civil liberties, and the questionings of why these wars are necessary to wage for the protection of American people.

They are not; they are simply wars of aggression against two countries Israel wants the US to beat up militarily, which have absolutely done nothing to us, no have any mind to do so. and I must politely remind you; Tel Aviv wants the costs for these wars to be borne only in American blood and with American money.

Netanyahu's half hour of spewing fakeries on Faux TV, was just that; a fabulous story, well spun, with utterly no hard evidence.

Number one, how would have Israeli intelligence spirited those documents out of the country, which Netanyahu was using to justify his assertions that Iranian leadership has a secret nuclear missile program; and number two, if such a program exists, how could the IAEA, which has been monitoring Iran for compliance on the P5+1 accord, not know that such a facility existed?!?
I can guarantee you; the CVs of the members of the Iranian monitoriing team, would leave you breathless, at their collective levels of technical expertise.

The timing of Netanyahu's heavy-handed insanity, coming right before 12 May, when President Trump is to either recertify Iran as compliant with the accord, of decertify the US's agreement to the accord, is both scarily telling, and troubling; I doubt that the US government is going to recertify Iranian compliance here, which will lead to more US sanctions, which will lead to Iran walking away from the deal entirely.

That is the design intent for such US sanctions, period, end of discussion.
How soon a shooting war breaks out, I cannot tell you; the dangers which will be created by such a war, just feel...imminent, at this moment.

Is This The Collapse You Ordered…?

The Romans had their own version of a financialized economy: they simply devalued their coins by mixing in less and less silver at the mint, so they could pretend to pay for the same luxuries they had grown accustomed to as resources stretched thin. Our financialized economy — like everything else we do — operates at levels of complexity so baffling that even its supposed managers at the central banks are flying blind through fogs of debt, deception, and moral hazard. When that vessel of pretense slams into a mountain top, the effects are likely to be quick and lethal to the economies on the ground below.

But what happens when the economic pie is no longer expanding, yet the keepers of the system seem unable to turn off their own desires to grab more, more and yet more from that same pie? That is where we find ourselves today. The economic oxygen is being sucked from the middle and lower classes and the social and political pressures are building. Meanwhile more and more claims (currency and debts) are being piled on top of this stagnant economic pie thereby increasing the pressure on a creaking system. Someday that all gives way rather spectacularly and ends very badly. History says it ends with a lot of social anarchy and quite possibly another world war.
