Trump Demands Gun Control, Executions For 'Hate Crimes,' Asks DOJ & Social Media to Detect Pre-Crime

President Donald Trump on Monday demanded anti-Second Amendment "red flag" gun seizure laws, swift executions for so-called "hate crimes," "involuntary confinement" for people the state deems "mentally disturbed," and directed the DOJ to work with states, local law enforcement and social media sites to "detect mass shooters before they strike" -- all while repeating generic leftist slogans about "hate."

What Israel's Demolition of 70 Palestinian Homes Was Really About

He also saw the revolting video, posted on social media, in which an IDF captain and two policemen exult and embrace to celebrate the demolition. That, he says, was the hardest moment. “When I saw people happy over the explosion – that was harder than seeing my building being blown up,” he said."

One day this week, after midnight, Abu Tair sent a text message: “We think everyone tricked us. The IDF and the High Court were quick to demolish so they could help Netanyahu win more seats in the Knesset. Why? The right is great at screwing the Arab population.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It actually terrifies me more than a little, that a couple of President Trump's BFF's in the Middle East, are Bibi Netanyahu, the Butcher of Gaza; and Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, the Butcher of Yemen.

Freshman Representatives Heading to Israel on AIPAC Sponsored Trip

n Monday, House Majority Leader Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-MD) will be bringing a large delegation of freshman Democratic members of Congress to Israel. The Trip is sponsored by the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC). A Republican group is scheduled to arrive in Israel on Friday.

These trips to Israel are organized in August of every off-election year for new members of Congress. Hoyer will be joined by chairman of the House Democratic Caucus Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY). The presence of these party leaders shows the importance the trip has to party leadership. It is part of the effort to squash some of the questioning of the US-Israel relationship that has been growing within the party.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"...the questioning of the US-Israel relationship that has been growing within the party." must continue, and continue in earnest.

And the questions which must be asked of these Freshman Congressional Members are the following:

Why does the US continue to supply money and arms to Israel, even though that is illegal, courtesy of the Symington Amendment and the Glenn Act?!?

And if these freshman demos have never read this, now might be an instructive time to share this legislation with it.

Symington Amendment, Glenn Act

Lawsuit Claims Aid to Nuclear Israel Illegal Under Symington Glenn Amendments

Unlike Iran, why has Israel not become a signatory to the NNPT (nuclear non-proliferation Treaty),and agreed to allow its nuclear facilities, which Iran has done?!?

Why is there no conversation about the horrific way Israel treats Palestinians?

No let up for Palestinians getting arrested and tortured by Israel

95% of detained Palestinian Children were tortured.

Palestinian man dies after 30 days in solitary confinement

Torture in Israeli Prisons: 200 Methods Used against Palestinian Prisoners

And to add injury to insult, last November, the Israeli High Court has ruled the following last November:

Israeli High Court Rules to Allow, and Expand the Use of Torture against Palestinians Held in Israeli Custody

And THIS government of Israel, is touted by Israeli and US politicians, as "the only democracy in the Middle East?!?

When in the name of Heaven, did Israeli "Democracy" get conflated with "Torture"?!?

Can someone out there please explain this to me?!? I must be more than a little thick in my brain, not to be able to put those two activities together.

And the ultimate question must be asked here; do true democracies actually torture confessions out of people?!?

And the short, civilised answer has to be, HELL, NO!!

So, Israel, sorry to have to explain this to you, but true democracies do not torture.

you are going to have to choose one of the other, but cannot, in a 24/7 satellite/cable world, define yourself as both; the optics on this are utterly... schizophrenic.

Defense Chief Sees ‘Rising’ Support for US Fleet in Strait of Hormuz

Speaking to reporters over the weekend, Defense Secretary Mark Esper claimed that he believes there is “rising support” for the US-led naval fleet in the Strait of Hormuz

The US has been pushing that plan for over a month, on the idea that the US would get access to a large fleet to confront Iran, and would only have to contribute about 10-20% of the fleet themselves. So far they’ve gotten no commitments to join the fleet.

Despite Esper’s optimism, the US still has no commitments to join the fleet, though he suggested that some countries might sign up soon, citing 30 nations attending a meeting last week in Florida to talk about it.

Australia seems like a likely candidate, though why Australia would join the US fleet and not the British alternative is unclear. Even then, most nations have flat out rejected the scheme, and Australia’s willingness to consider it at all is still something.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Forgive me for having to ask the obvious, but has Defense Secretary Mark Esper gone completely barking-dog mad, to make a statement like this?!?

France, Germany, and Spain have given a resounding "NO" against this, as reported as follows:

European nations give a resounding "NO", to Esper's suggestion of joining a US coalition

"U.S. Lobbies Oil Buyers and Producers to Secure Gulf Against Iranian Threat
India, U.K. boost ship escorts while France and Spain refuse to join U.S. coalition".

Australian parliament is "thinking about it", but so far, that is the best Esper has been able to conjure.

US Planes Enter Airspace Controlled by Venezuela - Venezuelan Armed Forces

BUENOS AIRES (Sputnik) - The US planes have once again entered the airspace controlled by Venezuela, the Strategic Command Operations of Venezuela, a branch of the country's armed forces, said.

"Today [on Saturday], once again US spy planes have entered the zone controlled by Venezuela, violating aviation security and international treaties. The United States continues to openly insult our country," the command tweeted.

This is not the first case of a violation of the airspace of Venezuela over the past few days by the US aircraft. Earlier in the week, the country's Defence Ministry said that those incidents could be regarded as a serious threat.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It has been reported, that President Trump is thinking about a full-blown naval blockade against Venezuela.

So Mr. President, a word, please: Russia and China more than certainly will rally to Venezuela's aid, should you decide to do this. How and with what, I cannot say, but were I a betting woman, I would almost bet that they will.

And a ground war in Venezuela?!? Please remember just "how well" the US did in the Viet Nam war, which was primarily a war of attrition, and in a largely jungle environment. After the epic fail we call Afghanistan, do you really think it wise, to move forward against Caracas?!?

Kindly remember this, when "kicking the concept around" with your cabinet.

You are welcome, Mr. President.

INDIA CLUSTER BOMBED PAKISTAN AS LINE OF CONTROL TENSIONS FLARE UP

SOURCE: ZERO HEDGE

Another regional conflict could be brewing between India and Pakistan along the Line of Control (LoC) that separates Kashmir. Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan on Sunday requested the international community to mediate the developing crisis as India continues to strengthen its military forces in Kashmir and ordered tourists and pilgrims to leave the Jammu and Kashmir state.

"President Trump offered to mediate on Kashmir. This is the time to do so as the situation deteriorates there and along the LoC with new aggressive actions being taken by Indian occupation forces. This has the potential to blow up into a regional crisis," Khan tweeted.

Khan accused India on Saturday of shelling and using cluster bombs on civilians across densely populated areas on the LoC. He asked the United Nations to monitor the situation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF true, and India did use cluster bombs on densely populated regions, this is a war crime, period, end of discussion.

I would strongly suggest that Indian President Ram Nath Kovind needs to take some confidence building steps with Pakistan, to insure no more damage, or deaths or injuries to the Kashmiri people, and come up with a political solution which will ratchet down the tensions here, and create an atmosphere where real negotiations can actually take place.

Because right now, with both nations being nuclear-armed, I am terrified of the risks for unintentional war, if reasonable negotiations are not offered, and signed on to, by all parties.

SCIENTISTS SAY THEY CREATED A HUMAN-MONKEY HYBRID IN A LAB

SOURCE: TRUTHTHEORY.COM
By John Vibes / Truth Theory

Scientists in China claim to have created the world’s first human-monkey hybrid.

The research team is actually from Spain, but they conducted their study in China to avoid regulations against this type of experimentation.

Last week, Japanese scientists made the shocking announcement that they were planning on creating human-rodent hybrid embryos for the purpose of growing organs for transplants.

However, it would seem that other researchers have already made some serious progress in creating human-animal hybrids, going so far as to create a human-monkey. These experiments are also seeking to develop ways of growing human organs for transplant.

The researchers injected human stem cells capable of creating any type of tissue into a monkey embryo, according to The Independent.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Playing" with DNA in this manner, is like playing with fire, because of what could go completely out of control before it can be remedied; I simply hope that there is a protocol in place to prevent that with these experiments, because they could go "mammary glands vertical" in one horrific heartbeat.

ERDOGAN PUBLICLY ANNOUNCES TURKEY INVASION EAST OF THE EUPHRATES

SOURCE: MIDDLE EAST MONITOR
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has publicly announced the decision to launch a long-awaited military operation in Syria, east of the Euphrates River, and said that the United States (US) and Russia have been warned and provided with the information necessary.

Speaking at an inauguration ceremony in the north-western city of Bursa yesterday, Erdogan stated that “We entered Afrin, Jarabulus, and Al-Bab, and now we’re going to enter east of the Euphrates,” adding that “We shared this with the US and Russia.”

The military operation has been highly speculated on in recent weeks following talks between Turkish military figures such as Minister of Defence Hulusi Akar and US Envoy to Syria James Jeffreys regarding a proposed safe zone in northern Syria. At the start of the talks in July, Turkey warned that it would conduct the operation if an agreement was not reached for the establishment of the zone.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

My big question here is, what will Russia do, if this incursion goes ahead, as planned?!?

There had to be some kind of quid pro quo, at least with Russia, for them to allow this Turkish military operation to move forward; I am having a hard time believing that Russia would go along with this, without getting something back for Al Assad, but only time will reveal what that was.

SIGNS GO UP IN LONDON TELLING PEOPLE NOT TO SH*T IN THE STREETS

SOURCE: PAUL JOSEPH WATSON VIA SUMMIT NEWS

Signs are going up in London telling people not to sh*t in the streets.

A City of Westminster Clean Streets sign posted to Twitter reads, “This area is being monitored for street fouling. Anyone urinating or defecating may be subject to arrest.”

“Welcome to London. Do not shit in the street,” tweeted Old Holborn.

Welcome to London.

Do not sh*t in the streetpic.twitter.com/9vYijqanBA

— Old Holborn? (@Holbornlolz) July 31, 2019
Public defecation used to be more of a problem in non-European countries, but it seems to have made its way here now.

The sight of feces in the streets is becoming a major problem in liberal utopias like San Francisco, and it seems it’s London’s turn for a taste of that brand of progressivism.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Absoflippinglutely unbelievable.

And how in the name of heaven did this practice become a scourge on the lives of London's people?!?

I have to shake my head in disbelief, that this anti-civilized behaviour, could actually happen here; yet, here we are.

Puerto Rico, Hawaii, and the Unraveling of US Empire

The results of centuries of U.S. empire, which began with Manifest Destiny that crossed the North American continent and grew into a global empire, are coming home to roost in Puerto Rico and Hawaii.

For far too long, the rules have been written for Puerto Ricans, not by them. The island has been a colony of the US for more than 100 years and was a colony of Spain before that. It is time to decolonize.

Hawaiian Independence Movement Grows

Native Hawaiians and allies are camped at the base of Mauna Kea to protect the summit of the mountain from the construction of a proposed Thirty Meter Telescope, a massive 18-story, five-acre telescope complex being built on sacred land. Mauna Kea, measured from its base, is the tallest mountain in the world and represents the birthplace of Hawaii island and the Hawaiian people. The summit is associated with a number of important gods and goddesses and is the site of numerous burial places and altars.

The Coming Boeing Bailout?

Let’s start by admiring the company that was Boeing, so we can know what has been lost. As one journalist put it in 2000, “Boeing has always been less a business than an association of engineers devoted to building amazing flying machines.”

For the bulk of the 20th century, Boeing made miracles. Its engineers designed the B-52 in a weekend, bet the company on the 707, and built the 747 despite deep observer skepticism. The 737 started coming off the assembly line in 1967, and it was such a good design it was still the company’s top moneymaker thirty years later.

How did Boeing make miracles in civilian aircraft? In short, the the civilian engineers were in charge. And it fell apart because the company, due to a merger, killed its engineering-first culture.

Jeffrey Epstein became an FBI INFORMANT to secure sweetheart deal and shut down federal probe into the pedophile's abuse of underage girls, government records reveal

Jeffrey Epstein managed to shut down a federal probe into his illicit and illegal activities with underage girls and secure his sweetheart plea deal by providing information' to the government, FBI reports confirm.

A federal investigation into the pedophile led by the FBI was closed out on September 18, 2008 when Epstein 'provided information to the FBI as agreed upon' according to the case agent.

That investigation had been underway for two years at that point, but it was noted in the final report that 'no prosecution will occur in this matter as long as Epstein continues to uphold his agreement with the State of Florida.'

The investigation had been dormant for seven months by then, with FBI records obtained by DailyMail.com showing that the lead agent had not filed a report since February 11 at the time he closed the case.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Just when I think that the FBI (the Federal Bureau of Ignominy) cannot possibly sink lower than it already has, it surprises me, hiring a hideous miscreant like Epstein.

When the absolutely "morally wrong", such as serially raping under-age girls, becomes the absolutely "morally acceptible" thing to do, as the means to an end, you have to understand, that the whole moral fiber of a country, has been ripped to shreds, and we can expect nothing but more lies from those who signed off on the Epstein deal.

IF he actually gets to testify at his trial, it will be nothing short of a miracle that he got there to testify in one piece, with so many of the monied and well positioned people wanting to have him assassinated.

Israel dodges UN blacklist despite rise in Palestinian youth killed and injured in 2018

Israeli forces killed and maimed some 2,800 Palestinian children in 2018, the highest number in years, and yet were not mentioned on an annual United Nations blacklist of armed forces that commit atrocities against youth.

Some 59 Palestinian children were killed last year and 2,756 more were injured — the highest number since 2014, according to a report by UN secretary-general Antonio Guterres that will be published this week, an advance copy of which was seen by Mondoweiss.

While Guterres called for a probe into the deaths and blasted Israel for endangering Palestinian youths, the UN chief did not embarrass Israel by naming it on his “list of shame” in the annexes of the survey.

“I am extremely concerned by the significant rise in the maiming of and injuries caused to children across Israel and the occupied Palestinian territory, including by tear gas inhalation requiring medical treatment,” Guterres said in the report.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

UN Secretary-General Guterres knows that his requests to Israel will be answered... just as soon as pigs discover that they are aerodynamic.

US Officials Say ISIS a ‘Global Threat,’ But Focus on Africa

US officials are continuing to emphasize that ISIS poses a “global threat,” even though it lost all its territory in Syria and Iraq. While that continues the narrative of an open-ended fight across the planet, officials are also clear the focus right now is on Africa.

It’s not clear exactly why ISIS is being chosen as the immediate focus for US anti-ISIS operations, with so much of a deal being made previously of the group in Afghanistan and Pakistan, but the US is hoping to get global support for the Africa fight.

US officials are emphasizing the substantial number of ISIS-affiliated factions inside Africa in their narrative, though of course, not all ISIS are created equal, and nowhere is that more apparent than in Africa.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Isis is a construct of the US and Israel.

ISIS Is a US-Israeli Creation. Top Ten “Indications”

ISIS : A CIA Creation to Justify War Abroad and Repression at Home

Secret Pentagon Report Reveals the the US created ISIS as a tool to overthrow Syria's President Assad

The more quickly you can get your head around that "bit", the sooner the clarity will come about why the US government is requesting/demanding an international "response" to "the ISIS threat".

When Karl Marx made the observation that all wars are economic in origin, history keeps proving this true.

What the US and its Western powers have been doing, very concretely ever since 2001, is destabilise countries with tremendous resources (oil, natural gas, gold, platinum, molybdenum, etc.), regime change their governments; expropriating resources to which it has no moral right; and insuring that these resources are only sold for the US dollar.

Rinse; wipe; repeat.

Anyone who cannot see this pattern, in the wars of conquest against Iraq; Afghanistan; Libya; Yemen; and various other Middle East and African countries, has not been paying attention.

And when you query bing.com, about Africa's riches, here is the answer you get:
The Natural Resources of Africa, and the article goes on to state:

"Which Continent Is The Richest In Natural Resources?

Oil. It is estimated that 12% of the oil produced in the world comes from Africa.
Precious Metals. Africa has the richest reserves of precious metals such as gold, cobalt,...
Timber. Timber is an essential resource in the construction industry and furniture making.

So is it any wonder that the US is "pushing" the alleged "ISIS threat, pertaining to Africa, as a reason to invade it, and do what it has done to so many other countries around the world?!?

No wonder at all.

It is very, painfully, uncomfortable to recognise that one's government, has consistently committed war crimes, against the people with the gall who happen to live over, or adjacent to, the resources the US government wants to control; but that is the stark reality of 21st century America.

China Vows To Retaliate After Fresh Tariffs: Here Is What It Could Do

Now that President Trump has boxed Jerome Powell into a corner by declaring his intention to slap tariffs on the other ~$300 billion in Chinese goods that haven't already been impacted come the first of September, it's worth considering: How will Beijing respond to all of this?

So far, Chinese media has been quiet on the subject, even as domestic markets tumble and the yuan slides. That's possibly because China's senior lawmakers have departed to the seaside resort of Beidaihe for their annual two-week policy conclave. Typically, officials from President Xi on down disappear from public view as they debate policy. But Beijing's minister of foreign trade has already made clear that Beijing is less than pleased with President Trump's latest announcement which, like the last one, took them completely by surprise (though it's not all that surprising considering that the latest round of trade talks barely lasted half a day.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It has become painfully obvious, to anyone with a pair of eyes to see, and ears to hear, and a brain to think, that the nominal leader of the Free World, and "alleged" writer of the book, "The Art of the Deal", (ghostwritten, of course), cannot manage to negotiate his way out of a bloody paper bag!!!

If President Trump did have this capability, we would not be fighting these economic wars with China right now; and that's just a fact!!

And what concerns me most intensely, is how trade wars can morph into shooting wars, sometimes, at the drop of the proverbial hat!!!

Is there not one "adult in the room", in the Bowels of Power in DC, who is capable of thinking a scenario through to its logical conclusion?!?

Looking at the worsening, horrific messes with both US domestic and foreign policies, the blunt answer, has to be, "HELL, no!!"

Multiple Jobholders Soar To Record High As Old Americans Can't Afford To Retire

While the headline payrolls number was solid and just as expected, if a more detailed read showed some red flags (downward revisions, rising wages only due to less hours worked), one aspect of today's jobs report that will likely become a major talking point for Democrats and other critics of the Trump economy, is that the number of multiple-jobholders soared from 7.855 million in May, to 8.156 million in June, to a new all time of 8,389 million in July, a monthly increase of 233K and 591,000 higher in the past three months, which was a clear indication that the jobs number was far weaker than the headline represents if one excludes all those workers who represented two jobs to the BLS' various surveys.

Stock Losses Accelerate As China Warns "Temperamental" US "Will Suffer More Pain"

US equity markets are accelerating losses following confirmation, via a Chinese media op-ed, that the US-China trade war is drifting further away from a deal following Trump's new tariffs.

Full China op-ed (via Global Times)

The US on Thursday unexpectedly announced on Twitter that starting September 1 it would impose a 10-percent tariff on an additional $300 billion in Chinese goods, following the resumed high-level China-US economic and trade consultations in late July in Shanghai. Both sides said the negotiations were "constructive" and mentioned China's commitment to increase purchases of US agricultural products in their statements. It's astonishing and inexplicable that the White House changed its tune overnight and is wielding the tariff stick once again.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What I see here, is thousands of American businesses and farmers who will be hurt on this; and they are seriously not going to forget the economic pain they have endured, courtesy of "Truponomics", in the near future.

US Factory Orders Contract For 2nd Month In A Row As War-Spending Plunges

Having fallen for two straight months, and despite the decline of US (and the rest of the world's) Manufacturing PMIs, expectations were for a rebound in Factory Orders in June and they did, rising 0.6% (but less than the expected 0.7% MoM gain following a major downward revision for May to a 1.3% drop).

New orders ex-trans rose 0.1% in June after falling 0.03% the prior month

New orders ex-defense for June rise 1.1% after falling 0.8% in May

However, this is the second month in a row of year-over-year factory order declines.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This economy appears to be headed to hell in a hand basket, and I seriously doubt that there is anything to be done to change that, other than declare a massive war against the usual "suspects du jure"; that .... has, historically, lifted the US out of a depression.

But the question must be, against whom will this war be fought?!? Please, not against China or Russia, as both of them still conscript; have developed some incredible weaponry, and Russia has assisted Syria in getting rid of the US trained/funded/armed jihadis.

Wait, I know: Lichtenstein!!! :-)

You are welcome, Mr. President!!

Apple Suspends Program That Records Users Having Sex And Buying Drugs

Last week, we reported a shocking revelation about Apple's friendly personal assistant tool for mass surveillance Siri: The app "regularly" records people having sex, discussing private medical information, participating in drug deals and other "countless" invasive moments which it promptly sends to Apple contractors for their listening pleasure - all for the sake of "quality control".

Now, in the face of the latest privacy scandal to rock one of the major American tech giants, Apple has reportedly decided to suspend its global internal program for “grading” users' Siri commands following the public backlash over the Guardian's revelations, which came courtesy of a whistleblower.

As US Officially Exits INF Treaty, Gorbachev Warns Of "Chaotic Developments"

The Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces treaty (INF) signed in 1987 by President Ronald Reagan and Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev has now officially ended, six months after President Trump issued Moscow an ultimatum to cease its alleged violations.

“Decades ago, the United States entered into a treaty with Russia in which we agreed to limit and reduce our missile capabilities,” the President said during his February State of the Union address.

“While we followed the agreement to the letter, Russia repeatedly violated its terms. That is why I announced that the United States is officially withdrawing from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty, or INF Treaty.”

The clock on that timetable has just run out, with the US announcing it has ripped up the landmark agreement.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And can anyone in the US government, please enumerate those alleged "Russian violations?!?

Can ANYONE in the US government spell out for me, just what those violations were?!?

My gut is telling me, that Americans making these accusations cannot even get close to explaining what Russia did, because, perhaps, the President and Military understand how "behind the 8-ball" the US is, even with obscene amounts of money thrown at our weapons developers, regarding the evolution of US weaponry, relative to that of Russia.

The Empire Is Coming For Tulsi Gabbard

Authored by Tom Luongo via The Strategic Culture Foundation,

The second debate among Democratic hopefuls was notable for two things. The lack of common decency of most of them and Tulsi Gabbard’s immense, career-ending attack on Kamala Harris’ (D-Deep State) record as an Attorney General in California.

Harris came out of the first debate the clear winner and Gabbard cut her down to size with one of the single best minutes of political television since Donald Trump told Hillary Clinton, “Because you’d be in jail.”

Gabbard’s takedown of Harris was so spot on and her closing statement about the irresponsible nature of the Trump Administration’s foreign policy was so powerful she had to be actively suppressed on Twitter.

And, within minutes of the debate ending the media and the political machines moved into overdrive to smear her as a Russian agent, an Assad apologist and a favorite of the alt-right.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Although I disagree with her vehemently on the issue of BDS (because economics , rather than human rights or human dignity, is a language Israelis truly understand), this absolutely should not have happened to her, period, end of discussion.

And it is utterly nauseating to me, that at the end of the day, as final presidential candidates are "chosen" by the Deep State, Corporations, and the Military Industrial Complex, I have utterly zero say in who governs this country.

The Powers the Be consistently attempt to cajole me, and whisper in both ears, that I really do have a choice when voting for President and Congress; unfortunately, however, what voting in US national elections has become is a vast spectacle, somewhat like in the film franchise "The Hunger Games", where the one who literally kills all their enemies, is deigned "Champion".

I guess I am supposed to be sincerely grateful there isn't usually that much physical "bloodletting" in US elections, unless one wants to count the dead, maimed for life, starving, and diseased people all over the world, courtesy of US foreign policy.

The wars will continue, and simply focus on other targets, such as, potentially Iran; the genocide will continue in Yemen, courtesy of the Saudi and US military; and people like me, who want to see partnerships, peace, and flourishing for all the world's people will be shunned as though we were some kind of native-born Kryptonite.

People at the head of this country, may change; the agenda of the Deep State; Military Industrial Complex, and Corporate America, collectively, never does.

And therein lies the rub.

THE STATE NEEDS AN ENEMY: WARREN WARNS ABOUT “WHITE SUPREMACIST” THREAT

Beginning in 2016, we were subjected to the absurd fairy tale of Russia, through Facebook ads, unbalancing the US election system (long rigged in favor of the political class) and the result was the victory of the execrable Donald Trump, a populist primitive and former reality TV star.

The corporate media has wasted little time along with the Democrat side of the one-party hydra associating Trump with racism, sexism, nativism—the polar opposite of the adopted identity politics control device taken on by the state—and thus manufacturing the new threat: the alt-right and white nationalism or white supremacy.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When I was a kid in elementary school, and every time there was a test, or something to take home, where it asked for my race, I wrote: "human"!!

Yes, my ancestry is European; but does that, and should that, automatically characterise me as a "bigot"?!? I think not!!

And where did I finish my college education, before the school received its status as a University?!? That, folks, was Cal State Dominguez Hills, and if ever a campus could be described as a "rainbow campus", it would have to have been that school.

There were people who looked like me; African-Americans, Hispanic Americans, Asian Americans, and others, and we all had our eyes on the same prize, which was graduating from college in order to get a great job. There was a great energy of cooperation, and people helped each other out with more challenging subjects, and working together.

So, Senator Warren, a word, please; I am the last person you could ever, reasonably, think of characterizing as a "racist"; I volunteer for my church, conduct their choirs, and coach individuals who want to sing better. I give back through an extraordinary collaboration between our local Methodist church, and our local Catholic Church, St. Elizabeth's for a working food distribution program at our local public elementary school.

And Senator Warren, about your own struggles with your "identity", we have the following article from last February: Elizabeth Warren's Native American problem just got even worse

Let's be fact-centric, Senator, for at least one moment, please, if that is possible for you: if the DNA does not show Indigenous American Ancestry, there is none!!

FBI WANTS TECH TO TRACK SOCIAL MEDIA FOR CRIMINALS AND TERRORISTS BEFORE THEY ACT

SOURCE: NEXTGOV
The Federal Bureau of Investigations aims to acquire access to a “social media early alerting tool” that will help insiders proactively and reactively monitor how terrorist groups, foreign intelligence services, criminal organizations and other domestic threats use networking platforms to further their illegal efforts, according to a request for proposal amended this week.

“With increased use of social media platforms by subjects of current FBI investigations and individuals that pose a threat to the United States, it is critical to obtain a service which will allow the FBI to identify relevant information from Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and other Social media platforms in a timely fashion,” the agency said in the RFP. “Consequently, the FBI needs near real-time access to a full range of social media exchanges in order to obtain the most current information available in furtherance of its law enforcement and intelligence missions.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Looks like we're headed toward a Chinese-centric model for controlling behaviour by controlling social media, and giving "credits and debits" to all of its citizens.

Of course, what the end result of such sweeping surveillance will cause to happen, is an absolute silence on the internet, with no one saying anything, even if it is of positive social significance.

And my question has to be; if these on-line manifestos did exist, why hadn't the DHS already flagged them, before it was too late?!?

And also, why DHS is absolutely, utterly impotent at finding, and prosecuting malware and hijack ware creators?!? Are they not supposed to be responsible for the security of ALL Americans online?!?

UK Home Secretary wants backdoor access to all encrypted email.

Aug 01 09:24

CNN was manually abusing youtube’s copyright system to order take downs of commentators covering last night’s DNC debate (resulting in 90 day livestream bans for those channels).

I’ve seen CNN do some pretty shady things over the years, including telling their viewers it was illegal for anyone but the news media to read wikileaks source documents, which were easily obtainable online, cutting off an interview with a member of congress (using a seeming fake "technical problem") when that representative mentioned wikileaks and the Clinton campaign emails, or threatening to doxx a reddit user unless the indvidual agreed to abide by conditions laid out by the news outlet.

This wanton display of disregard for the public forum, however, is perhaps the most damning reflection of the danger "news" outlets such as CNN pose to this Republic. While some of their reporting may well be news, their corporate structure induces them to turn our system of democracy into a tool for profit (something which should be resisted at all costs).

DOJ AND FBI SHOW NO SIGNS OF CORRECTING PAST UNTRUTHS IN THEIR NEW ATTACKS ON ENCRYPTION

SOURCE: ELECTRONIC FRONTIER FOUNDATION
Last week, Attorney General William Barr and FBI Director Christopher Wray chose to spend some of their time giving speeches demonizing encryption and calling for the creation of backdoors to allow the government access to encrypted data. You should not spend any of your time listening to them.

Don’t be mistaken; the threat to encryption remains high. Australia and the United Kingdom already have laws in place that can enable those governments to undermine encryption, while other countries may follow. And it’s definitely dangerous when senior U.S. law enforcement officials talk about encryption the way Barr and Wray did.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The problem with giving government "back doors" through all computer entities is, that the bad guys already have this security already in place and evolving, and the good people may well be encrypting their business methods, to protect themselves against unfair competition.

And secondly, and most importantly, this government has proven, time and time again, that they are not to be trusted with anything more important than a receipt for a pizza!!

PENTAGON: NEW LASER TECH CAN MAKE PEOPLE HEAR VOICE COMMANDS

ZAPPY BRAIN
The Pentagon is working on a weapon that uses lasers and plasma to transmit sound files, even human speech, directly to individual people at great distances.

That’s according to a story by the Military Times newspaper, which reports that military researchers are working on ways to use lasers and plasma to control crowds. The story is short on technical details — but, at the same time, a troubling glimpse of the military’s desire to control people using next-gen tech.

FRIKKIN LASERS
It’s not clear how the tech works.

And for now, the Military Times reports that the Pentagon’s scientists haven’t yet built a speech-transmitting laser capable of passing through a wall — though officials believe it could be ready to deploy in as little as five years.

U.S. NUCLEAR ARMS PLANT FILES REPORTED MISSING

SOURCE: ECOWATCH

The U.S. Department of Justice won't turn over 60 boxes of files about a nuclear arms plant in Colorado because it says it can't find the files. The missing documents were presented to a grand jury during a two-year criminal investigation that looked into environmental crimes committed at Rocky Flats, which produced plutonium triggers for the nation's nuclear arsenal throughout the Cold War, as the Denver Post reported.

The nuclear plant, just outside of Denver, operated from 1952 to 1989 when it shut down amid the grand jury investigation. While running, it had a history of fires, leaks and spills. Files about the plant, however, have remained a state secret since the grand jury investigation concluded in 1992.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Can't find the files", MY ASTROLABE!!!

They have most probably been destroyed, and are a sitting heap of ashes on a landfill somewhere.

North Korean soldier defects to South across demilitarised zone

The South Korean military detained a North Korean soldier who crossed the heavily fortified demilitarised zone that separates the two countries, according to the South’s joint chiefs of staff (JSC).

The soldier expressed his intention to defect to South Korea, the JSC said on Thursday.

The unidentified active-duty soldier was first detected by thermal imaging equipment moving south near the Imjin river late on Wednesday and South Korean troops took him into custody just before midnight.

Also on Wednesday the South Korean military recovered a body near the DMZ suspected to be that of a North Korean civilian, a spokesman for South Korea’s defence ministry said.

Clad in military-type pants and a belt, the body was found in the Imjin river and appeared to have been dead for at least two weeks, South Korea’s Yonhap news agency reported.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The timing of this defection is more than interesting; one has to wonder about which side is this guy really on, and why the defection now, right after Kim Jung Un has already tested a couple of missiles?!?

BIG PHARMA ADMITS MEASLES OUTBREAK AND SUBSEQUENT MEDIA HYSTERIA MADE THEM MASSIVE PROFITS

OURCE: MATT AGORIST @ THE FREE THOUGHT PROJECT
(Support Free Thought) - Since the beginning of the year, the Free Thought Project has been reporting on the hysteria associated with the measles outbreak and the subsequent loss of liberties and police state crackdown that’s ensued. We’ve seen children banned from public spaces, mandatory vaccinations enforced with police action, and a pro-vaccine push in the mainstream media like we’ve never seen before. In May, the pro-mandatory vaccine push reached a new level, as the Washington Post published an article calling for the arrest of those who choose not to vaccinate. Now we are seeing the result of said hysteria and it comes in the form of massive pharmaceutical industry profits.

On Tuesday, the pharmaceutical giant Merck said consumer demand for its measles vaccine skyrocketed thanks to the “outbreak” which helped boost sales in its second quarter.

YEMEN: UAE-BACKED OFFICIAL KILLED IN HOUTHI STRIKE 

SOURCE: MIDDLE EAST MONITOR
A UAE-backed commander was amongst those killed when an explosion struck a military parade in Yemen’s southern city of Aden today.

Scores were injured and killed in the blast which rocked the seat of Yemen’s Saudi-backed internationally recognised government.

The Houthi movement said it was behind the attack. Their official channel Al Masirah TV said it had launched a medium-range ballistic missile and an armed drone at the military parade.

“The blast occurred behind the stand where the ceremony was taking place at Al Jalaa military camp in Buraiqa district in Aden,” Reuters reported a witness saying.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

For the last 3 years, Saudi Arabia, aided and abetted by the US, has been turning Yemen into a bloody genocide.

And I take it, from the expectations of the Butcher of Yemen, aka Prince Mohammed bin Salman, that the Yemenites are forbidden to strike back?!?

Every thinking person I know, who has written on the tragedy which has become Yemen, says that the only way that this can be resolved, is through negotiation; of course, Prince MBS will not negotiate.

In fact, I am rather surprised that he hasn't ordered a complete carpet bombing of the country, coupled with the slaughter of all its male infants, as did (allegedly) Herod during the time Biblical time of Christ.

Of course, being a 21st century assassin (does anyone remember Adnan Khashoggi?!?) he understands that the optics of such attacks, would not be great for his country.

So he is continuing to pursue a war of attrition, which has no way of ending for him, except badly.

If there were any true justice in this world, this man would be in shackles at the Court for International Justice at the Hague; but the concept is no longer "justice"; for those monied, it's about "Just us!!!"

As Tensions Flare Between US & Iran, More Oil Tankers Are 'Going Dark' In The Strait Of Hormuz

Given the rising tension in the Strait of Hormuz, and the mysterious spate of seemingly random attacks on tankers that some have blamed on Iran, it's no surprise that more captains transporting shipments of crude and LNG through one of the busiest corridors for the global energy trade feel the need to keep a low profile, according to Bloomberg.

Which is apparently why more ships are turning off their transponders - "going dark", in industry jargon - a technique that is typically used by smugglers and those hoping to avoid American sanctions.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It will only be a matter of time before the US interdicts one of these ships, and claims that it was carrying Iranian oil, and that they went dark to evade the sanctions.

I would like those preciously few "adults in the bowels of DC", to be very careful about what the US does, in such a circumstance, given that Russia has promised that should Iran be attacked, Russia will come to its aid.
Iran ‘Won’t Be Alone’ If U.S. Attacks, Russian Official Says

The article went on to state: "“Iran will withstand this type of fight and Iran is not alone,” Zamir Kabulov, the Foreign Ministry’s special envoy for Asian countries including Iran, said at a Russian-Iranian policy forum in Moscow.

When asked if Russia was ready to provide material support to Iran if the U.S. attacks it, Kabulov said that “specific actions are a question for the Russian president.”

Folks, the US government is playing with fire, if they have swallowed their own moonshine Koolade, about the superiority of US weapons over those of Russia or China; the capabilities of US weapons is still, unfortunately, very much lagging behind those of their Russian and Chinese counterparts.

The more President Trump presses his sanctions, the more unpredictable the responses from Iran may become.

There are two "toys" not currently in this President's toy arsenal, and those "toys" are "caution" and "restraint."

I would like to hope that someone in this administration is willing mention them to the President.

Joe Scarborough Slams Dems For Attacking Obama's Policies More Than Trump's

MSNBC Host Joe Scarborough of MSNBC's 'Morning Joe' complained in a tweet last night that the Democratic contenders onstage last night for Pt. 2 of the second Democratic debate spent more time attacking President Barack Obama's policies than they spent attacking President Donald Trump.

Though Scarborough also inadvertently admitted something important: The Democratic Party of today isn't the same party from 2016. Instead, even candidates who once believed themselves to be part of the mainstream have embraced policies that are much further to the left, largely thanks to the influence of "the Squad" and their fellow progressives, who have been gaining influence in Washington since the mid-terms.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When I was a kid, coming up in what could only be considered a very genteel kind of poverty (but all the other kids in my neighborhood came out of the absolutely same environment, so I really didn't notice until I thought about it years later), my parents encouraged me to thrive where I could, and that education would always be important.

I did go on to receive my bachelor's degree, with honors, at a state college, and the family value here was, that even if I didn't love what I did, I could always find someone who would hire me, which ultimately proved true.

I never took a welfare check, or unemployment check, even though I qualified, during those transitionary points when I was between jobs; and it was kind of a matter of both pride and principal, that I did not do this.

But now, it appears that I am being "commanded" by the Democratic Party, to accept, house, feed, clothe, and educate every illegal alien who comes to this country, so my logical question is, "Why"?!?

Why should American taxpayers be burdened with the costs attached to assisting people who broke the law to be here?!?? And what guarantees do I have at the end of the day, from my government, that those people who are educated, clothed, fed, and housed by this government, will have the ability to become productive citizens once they have been through this process?

This, for me, is the crux of the problem.

With the rise of AI, and the automation of so many processes as to become dizzying to contemplate, the US can no longer be that America to which Emma Lazarus alluded in her poem, The New Colossus:

“Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”

That late 20th century testament to the possibility that one could work hard, and provide a decent life for one's self and one's family, with utterly no education, and be almost unable to speak the language of your adopted country, no longer exists in 21st America.

So why are these people, generally with no skills, no education, and no capability to speak the English language so critically important to the Dementocrats, and why now?!?

Unless one has been living under a rock since the 2016 elections, one has to understand the following, and why this is seen as so critical at this point in time; the Democrats want to see these people voting in 2020, even if they are still illegal, and undocumented, to turn the tide for the Democratic party's fortunes.

The Democrats used to be the party of the working middle class: not any more. Were my late Dad to see the degree to which this party has morphed into a caricature of its former self, he would be weeping uncontrollably.

Although our Australian brothers and sisters have a very draconian way of dealing with illegal immigrants, their concept for citizenship is based on a merit system, and this is a smart way to look at immigration, where citizenship becomes a privilege, and those becoming Australian citizens would be "the best of the best".

Can someone please tell me, where and why this is wrong?!?

We are dealing with a crippling national debt, which cannot be resolved.
Analysis of CBO’s January 2019 Budget and Economic Outlook

So what does Congress do, right before the Summer Recess?!? Raise the spending ceiling - again. Divided House Passes 2-Year Budget Deal to Raise Spending

I mean, hell; it's not their money, so they can do with taxpayer revenue as they wish, right?!?

We have neither a Representative Congress, nor a Representative Administration, at this point in this country's history; we have a government of the monied, for the monied, and by the monied.

Zionist Puppet Trump Gives Israel a Free Hand in Genocide of Palestinian People

With all criticism toward Israel silenced in the West, Israel now enjoys complete impunity to make life a hell on earth for the Palestinians.
The arrival of Donald Trump in the White House two-and-a-half years ago has emboldened Israel as never before, leaving it free to unleash new waves of brutality in the occupied territories.

While engaged in the process of “saving” Israel, Donald Trump is going to destroy the United States.

Israel is a demonic evil entity. It has Amerika by the throat. Israel is in the process of destroying the United States because it is a parasite, a vampire. Trump is their man. Trump’s job is to serve Israel.

All the ‘Q’ talk about Trump playing 4d chess is utter garbage. That is the psyop they are using to fool the goyim into believing that Trump is somehow working for the American voter. He is not, he is working for Israel.

You cannot make Amerika great again by giving Israel everything it wants — and more.

US Farmer Crisis: China's US Soybean Purchases Plunge To 2004 Lows

A new report from Bloomberg shows US soybean exports to China collapsed in 1H19 to the lowest level in more than a decade.

The US exported 614,806 tons of soybeans to China in June, according to US customs data. That brought 1H19 China imports of soybeans from the US to 5.9 million tons, the lowest level since 2004, according to Bloomberg calculations.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The farmers in this country looked to Candidate Trump to become their economic saviour; unfortunately, because of how President Trump has chosen to play the economic trade game" with China, concerning agricultural products, he has now become their worst economic nightmare.

Festival shooter Santino Legan legally purchased his rifle in Nevada. Here's what else we know about the 19-year-old

Eyewitness description

Julissa Contreras, who was standing within 20 feet of the shooter, told CNN's Natalie Allen the gunman "looked like the average guy.

"White, about in his 30s, under 6 feet. He was wearing tactical gear, had a baseball cap on, sunglasses, and he had a semi-automatic rifle. He was dressed for what he was there to do."

Contreras also said that "he didn't look angry," though she added that his "expression wasn't really something I could read on his face but he seemed very well-versed in what he was doing... and he seemed confident in his use of the gun."

Government By Blackmail: Jeffrey Epstein,Trump's Mentor Roy Cohn and The Dark Secrets of The Reagan Era

July 25th, 2019

By Whitney Webb Whitney Webb
Jeffrey Epstein, the billionaire who now sits in jail on federal charges for the sex trafficking of minors, has continued to draw media scrutiny in the weeks after his arrest on July 6. Part of the reason for this continued media interest is related to Epstein’s alleged relationship to the intelligence services and new information about the true extent of the sexual blackmail operation Epstein is believed to have run for decades.

As MintPress reported last week, Epstein was able to run this sordid operation for so long precisely because his was only the latest incarnation of a much older, more extensive operation that began in the 1950s and perhaps even earlier.

We do not support adding more laws onto citizens who already follow the existing laws.

North Korea Fires "Unidentified Projectile", South Korea News Agency Reports

Just as Lighthizer and his band of merry trade-deals-men prepare to head to China for face-to-face talks, South Korea's Yonhap news agency reports that North Korea has fired an unidentified projectile.

South Korea's joint chiefs of staff have confirmed the unidentified projectile's firing from the Wonsan region of North Korea. The launch took place “early morning” today, according to the statement.

Bloomberg reports that South Korean military are monitoring movement and preparing for additional launches.

As a reminder, at the G20 summit in Osaka, Japan in June, Xi urged US President Donald Trump to show "flexibility" and act in a "timely" fashion to ease sanctions on North Korea, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said earlier this month.

Xi's request reflected Beijing's desire to boost economic engagements with Pyongyang, analysts said.

Kim's timing couldn't possibly have been worse, in order give President Trump room to maneuver to get "more flexibility" from the US sanctions.

Google employees label notable conservatives Dennis Prager, Jordan Peterson, and others as “Nazis” in latest malicious smear stemming from left-wing bias

Documents from tech giant Google that were leaked to investigative journalism organization Project Veritas show that the company refers to popular leading conservatives such as PragerU founder Dennis Prager and Jordan Peterson, a Canadian clinical psychologist and a professor of psychology at the University of Toronto, as “Nazis.”

A report published by Project Veritas on Monday notes that internal documents leaked to the organization show that a Google employee and member of the tech giant’s “transparency-and-ethics” group called Peterson, Prager, Ben Shapiro, and other leading conservative voices “Nazis.”

As Breitbart News noted, the email document comes from internal communications within Google’s “transparency-and-ethics” group and strongly suggests that any content that PragerU, Peterson, and Shapiro publish ought to be removed from the “suggestion feature.”

Censored, in other words.

Google whistleblower says the company IS politically biased and says bosses' claims that they are neutral are 'ridiculous' as he warns 'algorithms don't write themselves'

Coppola said that there were a 'small number' of people whose jobs were dedicated to promoting certain news sites over others and that the bias is left-leaning, favoring CNN and The New York Times.

'A small number of people do work on making sure that certain new sites are promoted. And in fact, I think it would only take a couple out of an organization of 100,000, you know, to make sure that the product is a certain way,' he said.

Coppola added: 'I think it’s, you know, ridiculous to say that there’s no bias.

'I think everyone who supports anything other than the Democrats, anyone who’s pro-Trump or in any way deviates from what CNN and the New York Times are pushing, notices how bad it is,' he said.

'I'm very concerned to see big tech and big media merge basically with a political party, with the Democrat party. I know how algorithms are.

'They don't write themselves. We write them to do what we want them to do,' he said.

Our Ruling Elites Have No Idea How Much We Want to See Them All in Prison Jumpsuits

Our Ruling Elites have no idea how many of us already want to see them all in prison jumpsuits, and they also have no idea how fast the moral revulsion with their corrupt "leadership" might spread. Scanning the distracted, consumerist rabble from the great heights of their wealth and power, they reckon the capacity for moral outrage is limited, leaving them safe from any domestic crusade.

New High School Textbook Describes Trump as Mentally Ill, Supporters as Racist

“Let’s be clear: This is overt political propaganda being scooped into the most capable students minds under the guise of education. Even if they don’t accept its messages entirely, studying this wastes time that young people deserve to be spending getting actually educated.”

If progressives really wanted to reduce carbon emissions in America, they would cut off power to their own filthy liberal cities

For all the talk of “climate crisis” and “we’re all gonna die if we don’t stop global warming,” it turns out that city-dwelling liberals use far more energy than conservative, rural Americans.

Constitutional Carry Works in Arizona: Armed 19-Year-Old Shoots, Kills, Carjacker

On 17 July, at bout 1:30 a.m. in South Phoenix, Arizona, there was an attempted carjacking. The suspects may have thought the selected victim would be an easy target, because he was a teenager. It did not turn out that way. In Arizona, there is respect for the Second Amendment. Eighteen, Nineteen, and Twenty-year-old citizens are not prohibited from carrying guns or from carrying them in vehicles. The perpetrators in this attempted crime made a poor choice in the victim selection process. For the knife-man, it was a life ending one.

The Democrats’ 2020 Campaign Slogan is “Americans suck, vote for us.”

When you have so much of absolutely NOTHING, the only thing you have left is trying to shame, belittle, berate and otherwise demonize everyone you hate. They’re trying to get us to hate ourselves as much as they hate America and Americans. -- My guess is it’s not going to work.

Unleashed & Unchecked, Fake News Media Propaganda Will Destroy America

What Americans are witnessing occurring in their own Country, and what native populations of the Nations of the EU are now witnessing occurring in Europe, is the gathering storm of disaster for European and U.S. citizens alike—a cascading sequence of events—a horrific, cataclysmic reconfiguration of the entirety of Western Civilization into something out of science fiction–a Dystopian nightmare reality, for the populations of of Europe, and for the citizenry of the United States, from which no one can awaken.

Facebook bans Saint Augustine quote as ‘hate speech’

The quote Facebook deemed so offensive is as follows:

Let us never assume that if we live good lives we will be without sin; our lives should be praised only when we continue to beg for pardon. But men are hopeless creatures, and the less they concentrate on their own sins, the more interested they become in the sins of others. They seek to criticize, not to correct. Unable to excuse themselves, they are ready to accuse others.

The vindictive campaign against Chelsea Manning, America’s political prisoner

Whistleblower and political prisoner Chelsea Manning has now been confined to a federal detention center in Alexandria, Virginia for more than four months and is being subjected to punitive fines which could ruin her financially.

Manning is not being punished for any crime, nor has she been charged with a crime. Rather, she is being held in contempt of court for refusing—on principle and courageously—to testify before a star chamber grand jury impaneled to railroad journalist and WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange into a US prison, or worse.

Daily fines placed on Manning by Federal District Judge Anthony Trenga for refusing to testify doubled from $500 to $1,000 on Tuesday, with the total now standing at $18,000. The unprecedented financial penalties against Manning threaten her with personal bankruptcy and have already resulted in her losing her apartment in June.

‘Anti-Trump’ CNN Presstitute Defends Trump’s Persecution Of Assange

In the endless brain fart cyclone that is the Trump era, CNN White House Correspondent Jim Acosta has made a name for himself posing as a martyr of the free press. While US mass media have made a theatrical WWE performance of Trump’s occasional mean words toward Acosta under the banner of defending press freedoms, it has been pathetically sympathetic to this administration’s attempt to actually prosecute an actual journalist, Julian Assange, under the Espionage Act.

Iran Urges UK To Rein In 'Deep State'; Germany Warns Of "Uncontrollable" Escalation

Iran’s ambassador in London warned on Sunday that the UK government must get its "domestic political forces" pushing for regime change under control or else the two countries will face dangerous escalation. The public statement came two days after the British-flagged Stena Impero was boarded and captured by IRGC commandos, and over two weeks after the tanker Grace 1 was seized by UK Royal Marines off Gibraltar.

Iranian Ambassador Hamid Baeidinejad urged via his personal Twitter account that continued pressure on Iran would be "unwise" given that Tehran stands “firm and ready for different scenarios”.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Iranian Ambassador Baeidinejad, I hear you; and I think that the time has come for both the British and US governments to open up intensive lines of communication between themselves, and your government, and right the heck now.

I would like to hope that your voice of reason finds "listening ears", and resonates in the Consulates of the the UK and US. The place where it most probably won't, is with the Israeli government and Saudi Arabia's monarchy.

War against your country would be incredibly stupid, on the part of the US, Israel, Saudi Arabia, and the UK, in light of a Russian statement made by a high ranking diplomat at a symposium, indicating that if Iran were attacked, she would not be alone.

U.N. Sanctions Cut North Korea’s Trade Volume in Half

A report published Friday by the Korea Trade-Investment Promotion Agency (KOTRA), an organization funded by the government of South Korea, showed that North Korea’s trade volume was cut in half during 2018, evidently as a result of sanctions imposed by the United Nations Security Council.
The KOTRA report showed North Korea’s trade volume falling to $2.84 billion in 2018, a 48.8 percent decline from the previous year. Exports fell by a dizzying 86.3 percent, imports declined 31.2 percent, and the North Korean trade deficit rose by 17.5 percent.

The Korea Times cited the specific U.N. Security Council resolutions that appeared to deflate North Korea’s trade volume so sharply, saying:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Yikes; considering the degree to which these US sanctions have crippled North Korea's economy, can one blame its leadership, for being not terribly talkative about peace and denuclearization right now?!?

And as adding more salt into the wound, Secretary Mike Pompeo has just completely disregarded North Korea's charges regarding more military drills with South Korea: Pompeo rejects North Korean charges on Military Drills

The article goes on to state: "North Korea’s Foreign Ministry spokesman said on Tuesday Trump had reaffirmed in a meeting with Kim last month that joint exercises would be halted and the U.S. decision to forge ahead with them was “clearly a breach” of the two leaders’ agreements at a summit in Singapore last year.

The spokesman said this was putting a resumption of nuclear talks with the United States at risk and the ministry said Washington’s pattern of “unilaterally reneging on its commitments” was leading Pyongyang to reconsider its commitment to discontinue tests of nuclear weapons and intercontinental ballistic missiles."

Mr. President, you have GOT to seriously understand what you want here, and allow that to stand, looking at how some "good faith efforts" on the part of the US government might make this doable.

The only alternative here, is war with North Korea, which would most probably pull in China as well; not a great option.

74 Palestinians injured in clashes with Israeli soldiers in eastern Gaza

A Palestinian protester uses a slingshot to hurl stones at Israeli troops during clashes on the Gaza-Israel border, east of Gaza City, July 19, 2019. At least 74 Palestinians were injured on Friday during clashes with Israeli soldiers stationed on the border between eastern Gaza Strip and Israel, medics said. (Str/Xinhua)

GAZA, July 19 (Xinhua) -- A total of 74 Palestinian demonstrators were injured during clashes with Israeli soldiers in the eastern Gaza Strip on Friday, the Health Ministry in Gaza said.

Among the injured were two journalists and four field paramedics, a ministry report said, adding 36 were injured by Israeli soldiers' gunfire.

According to local media, around 6,000 demonstrators gathered on Friday afternoon in eastern Gaza close to the border with Israel.

It was the 67th weekly anti-Israel protest, better known as the Great March of Return rally which started in late March last year.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unfortunately, "Normalization with the Occupier" (Israel) is just about to get as real as the Palestinians can imagine, and that is a very dark future, indeed.

Expulsion, relocation, death and misery are precisely what the Israel government wants to see happen.

And Jared Kushner's "Deal of the Century" is already DOA with Palestinian leadership, because it does not recoginise the legitimacy, or the national aspirations of the Palestinian people in any real way.


Jared Kushner's 'deal of the century' fails to materialise in Bahrain

And to Palestinian leadership, just a note, please; if you are throwing rocks at Israeli forces, you are giving them the justification to shoot back with live ammo and teargas.

I am a Christian Pacifist Activist, who hopes that this "Gordian Knot" can be resolved through negotiation, rather than violence; but as a realist, I understand that there are certain Israelis who would much prefer to see Palestinians dead, rather than give them a "seat at the table", working toward an honest, reconciling of those issues of nationality and the existence of a Palestinian state, rather than continue with this brutal war of attrition.

New Jersey lawmakers are trying to amend the state’s discrimination laws to equate criticism of Israel with antisemitism

?
?
?
?
?
Lawmakers in New Jersey have introduced an antisemitism bill that would prohibit certain criticism of Israel in public schools and universities. The proposed legislation comes on the heels of similar bills being passed in South Carolina and Florida. Last year, the Department of Education adopted a new definition of antisemitism to include criticism of Israel.

SB 4001 was introduced on June 24 by Senate President Stephen Sweeney and Sen. Robert Singer. It aims to ensure that antisemitism is treated the same way as other forms of discrimination by amending state law. However, the bill equates criticism of Israel with antisemitism in a number of places including:

-[D]emonizing Israel by using the symbols and images associated with classic anti-Semitism to characterize Israel or Israeli people, drawing comparisons of contemporary Israeli policy to that of the Nazis, or blaming Israel for all interreligious or political tensions;

Webmaster's Commentary: 

WOW, looks like Senate President Stephen Sweeney and Sen. Robert Singer, are down-rev on their contributions from AIPAC , and are hoping to "sweeten their election pots" by riding high on this legislation.

In the pursuit of war, the first casualty is truth.

When reasonable, legitimate, and logical criticism of Israel is denied by American legislators, this means we are quickly sliding down that heavily greased poll, at maximum velocity, of "Whatever Israel Wants, Israel Gets", be it weapons, wars against alleged "existential enemies", or other atrocities, at the expense of the American people.

And please remember: the Symington Amendment makes it ILLEGAL to give any aid, weapons, or money to countries which refuse to join the NNPT (as Israel consistently refuses to do), and have their weapons sites inspected (as Israel consistently refuses to do).

The Symington Amendment

So Why does Israel get a pass, while other countries, which HAVE signed the NNPT, like Iran, get demonized?!?

That's what is so thoroughly maddening to those of us who expect this country to follow the "Rule of Law", rather than the Rule of Consistent Exceptions to those laws.....by certain "favored nations."

IF this legislation is passed (and I would almost certainly expect it to), I hope it goes right on up to the Supreme Court, as a real attack against both the Constitution, and Bill of Rights.

The Decline of Our Nation’s Generals

Now a new JCS chairman is about to take office. Compared with the headlines generated by the “squad” of House progressives who have attracted the ire of both Speaker Nancy Pelosi and President Donald Trump, the process of installing General Mark Milley in this once-important post has received negligible attention.

It would be useful to know if General Milley’s grasp of war has advanced beyond Colonel Milley’s.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Damn; is this the best and brightest out there President Trump could have nominated?!?

The answer, unfortunately, is a resounding "Hell, NO"!!!!

Jeffrey Epstein Allegedly Bankrolled Ex-Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak’s Tech Startup, Israel Media Reports

Ehud Barak, who defeated Benjamin Netanyahu in a 1999 election to become Israel's prime minister, has been linked to convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.

Less than three weeks after announcing that he will come out of political retirement to challenge Benjamin Netanyahu for prime minister in the upcoming Israeli elections, as YNet News reported, former prime minister Ehud Barak is facing allegations that he is financially tied to convicted sex offender and shadowy financier Jeffrey Epstein.

Epstein pleaded guilty in 2008 to a sexual offense with a 14-year-old girl, and was arrested again on July 6 on new sex trafficking charges. Barak, a former lieutenant general in Israel’s army, served as Israel’s 10th prime minister from 1999 to 2001, after defeating Netanyahu, who was then serving his first term as Israeli PM.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Apparently, the "Epstein Sludgeomania" continues to ooze out into every orifice of Israel's political consciousness, courtesy of this Prime Minister's alleged contacts with Epstein.

San Francisco's Hidden Homeless

Over the last several months, cities and counties across California have been releasing homeless counts. The results have been grim.

San Francisco was no exception. In May, the city released data that showed homelessness had jumped 17%. That was bad enough. Last week, a more complete accounting, known as a point-in-time count, showed the problem was even worse.

The count revealed that homelessness in a city that’s become a caricature of wealth inequality in the U.S. had actually increased by about 30% from 2017, when the last count took place.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As a native San Franciscan, this breaks my heart; how could a city with so much intellectual, artistic, and social capital be one the worst for our nations' homeless?!?
