Trump and Money Are Shielding Saudi Arabia From Accountability for Khashoggi's Killing

President Trump’s protection of Saudi Arabia is at best a temporary shield. Veterans, peace and human rights groups, and other interest groups have been pushing Congress to block U.S. military support for the kingdom by invoking provisions of the War Powers Resolution and making amendments to the National Defense Authorization Act. Human rights organizations also have pushed beneficiaries of Mohammed bin Salman’s private charity — among them the New York Public Library and the United Nations—to abandon their connection to the foundation, which the crown prince uses as a propaganda platform.

Yet, one year after Khashoggi’s killing, and 4 ½ years into the brutal Saudi-led intervention in Yemen, Congress and the president have yet to hold Saudi Arabia accountable. That cannot be allowed to stand. On the anniversary of Khashoggi’s murder, we owe it to him to stand up to the Saudi lobby and the president, and once and for all punish the Saudi government for what it has done.

Protesters in Haiti burn buildings, loot police station in drive to remove president (PHOTOS)

Thousands of protesters in Haiti took to the streets to demand the resignation of President Jovenel Moise, setting businesses and government buildings ablaze in chaotic demonstrations prompted by claims of official corruption.
In Port-au-Prince, Haiti’s capital, demonstrators looted a police station and made off with ammunition, ballistics vests and even office furniture on Friday. Elsewhere in the city, homes and businesses were set on fire. A courthouse in the city of Jacmel was also torched.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Please, take a good, hard look at the photo on top of this article; it does not appear to have been photoshopped, or compromised in any way; and there are a heck of a lot of people out there.

I don't know about you, but to me; this looks like the beginnings of a genuine revolution.

The big question, henceforward, is this; will the police and military continue to protect the powers that be, or will they ultimately side with the protestors?!?

Martial Law Unfolding In Iraq: 30 Protesters Shot, Internet Blackout, 24-Hour Curfews

Now in their third day, mass anti-government protests across Iraq have resulted in 30 dead and over 1000 wounded, amid a brutal police crackdown which has involved unprepared security forces firing live rounds on demonstrators.

Several major cities are now under curfew and the government has cut internet access for much of the country. In a signal of just how dire and growing the mayhem is, Iran has now sealed key border crossings with Iraq just ahead of an annual Shia pilgrimage this month, where crucial Iran-Iraq border crossings swell with pilgrims.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

folks, Iraq was allegedly "conquered", and given a (US-Centric) government; what has happened since then, has been one of the greatest transfers of wealth away from the Iraqi people, and toward the monied who are in favored positions to profit handsomely from Iraq's current corrupt leadership.

And my big question, having seen that Moqtada Al Sadr was in Iran this week, ( ON 9/11) and allowed himself to be photo-blogged with Supreme Leader Rouhani, and the leader of Iran's Revolutionary Guard, just what the heck he might be up to, right now?

Please remember; this guy is like a "father figure" to many young Shia Iraqi men, and his "Mahdi Army" fought both the Sunni militias, and occasionally US forces as well, and with some very intensely-won results.

Reports indicate that he is constantly in touch with the former "high commanders" of this group,so I am asking myself; how long would it take Al Sadr to "get the band back together" to fight this corrupt government at every turn?!?

What if he has discovered that his " political clout" in the last election, seeing that his party now has a plurality from the last Iraqi elections, was not enough to rid Iraq of the intense corruption which has plagued it, ever since the US invasion/occupation?!?

I would like to hope that this is keeping SOME FOLKS in the Pentagon and State Department up at nights; it sure the heck does for me!!

Trump calls for China to investigate Biden family

President Trump said Thursday that China should investigate the business dealings of 2020 rival Joe Biden's son, Hunter, as he doubled down on his prior -- and controversial -- call for Ukraine to do the same.

Trump struck a characteristically defiant tone while speaking to reporters on the White House South Lawn, en route to Florida.

DEMS SET SIGHTS ON BARR

"China should start an investigation into the Bidens because what happened with China is just about as bad as what happened with Ukraine," Trump said. "I’m sure that President Xi [Jinping] does not like being under that kind of scrutiny where billions of dollars is taken out of his country by a guy that just got kicked out of the Navy."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unfortunately, this kind of crud goes on for people who are "connected" through family money, and the kind of celebrity which "goes with "being a family member" of some one in high office.

I am quite sure that the same kinds of opportunities come forward for members of the Trump and Kushner families as well, but this most probably should not be the basis of discussion for the 2020 election.

Except for the truly monied, this economy has gone WAY south for much of President Trump's electorate; this country is on the keening edge of war against Iran, for no damned good reason, except that Trump's BFFs in the Middle East, the Butcher of Yemen, MbS, and the Butcher of Gaza, Israel's "falling" Prime Ministers Netanyahu, have declared that the US government, must do it, which most probably means a military engagement with Russia as well; our weaponry doesn't work anywhere near as well as does that of China and Russia. We are also treating China as a power to confront militarily, and right smack-dab in the middle of a trade war, at that.
Mr.President, sometimes, your timing... CAN BE AMAZINGLY LOUSY, and the
people who are taking it in the teeth for your trade decisions are those small farmers in this country, who supported you in 2016, but are about to go bankrupt, with what financial aid coming to them being far too little... and far too late.

So I have some very tough questions for President Trump, relative to his 2020 campaign: sir, are you going to hold your BFFs in the Weaponry business accountable for not taking care of our military in the field by providing the best weapons US governmental money can buy?!? Or are their contributions, overt and covert, "too critical to your campaign", that you don't dare rake them over the coals, publicly, and perhaps sending a couple of these execs to jail, to advertise that attempting to "pull one over" on the American military, with shoddy weaponry, will no longer be tolerated?!?

And secondly, sir, when are you going to announce a return to the Draft in this country?!? Russia, China, and Iran all conscript; the US currently does not, but absolutely does not have the troop strength to successfully triumph over any potential enemy right now.

CHINESE INTERNET USERS MUST PASS A FACIAL-RECOGNITION TEST TO USE WEB

SOURCE: DAILYMAIL.CO.UK
China has stepped up its internet censorship by demanding its citizens pass a facial-recognition test to be able to use web services.

People who want to have the internet installed at home or on their phones must have their faces scanned by the Chinese authority to prove their identities, according to a new regulation.

The rule, which will take effect on December 1, is said to be part of the social credit system which rates the Chinese citizens based on their daily behaviour.

At present, a Chinese citizen will need to show his or her ID card while applying for a landline or the internet.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If you don't think this kind of draconian surveillance isn't coming to the US, just wait a year of so, if it takes that long.

14 BILLION POLICE LICENSE PLATE DATABASE THAT KNOWS WHERE YOU ARE IN REAL-TIME

SOURCE: MASS PRIVATE I

Forget everything you have ever heard about police license plate readers and public safety, because it is all a lie.

Three major automatic license plate reader (ALPR) companies have created a mind-boggling database of 14 billion license plates that allows law enforcement to track anyone in real-time.

The Digital Recognition Network (DRN) has a database of over 8 billion license plates and boasts about sending customers (law enforcement) live vehicle location alerts.

"If you think there is nothing you can do to automatically detect vehicles, think again. DRN’s Live Alerts, part of the DRNsights for Insurance solution, uses vehicle location data gathered from over 8 billion nationwide sightings plus the 160,000 million gathered each month, to provide alerts when vehicles are detected."

Vigilant Solutions webpage has a database of over 5 billion license plates and collects a little less than DRN daily.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Our general movements are so dull and boring, that we both think that surveillance on this little family of 2, is "punishment duty" for whoever in whatever "alphabet soup" agency, is surveilling us.

OHIO POLICE FIRED BLANKS DURING SCHOOL SHOOTER DRILL, NEEDLESSLY TERRIFYING STUDENTS

SOURCE: REASON
Image result for school training for active shooter

Police officers outside of Dayton, Ohio, unsheathed their weapons and fired blanks in Franklin High School on Tuesday as part of a misguided effort to prepare students for a possible active shooter.

The planned drill unnecessarily ratcheted up the intensity of school lockdown procedures, which routinely require students and teachers to barricade themselves in their classrooms. That the exercise was potentially traumatizing was not lost on the officials who planned it, as they came equipped with “Social-Emotional Activities,” as well as counselors who could talk with any disturbed teens.

“There was a concern and it did cause some stress” among parents and students, Lt. Gerry Massey tells the Cincinnati Enquirer. Senior Samantha Earnhart, one such terrified student, said that she “became very emotional” and “started to cry” upon hearing the gunfire.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Were Mike and I parents of a kid enrolled in this school, or any school which allowed/encouraged these kinds of drills, we would pull them out so quickly, as to make the principal's head spin, counterclockwise.

These drills are not about "education"; these drills are created to make students feel emotionally unsafe in any possible environment, and yet magically believe that "the State can/and will always be there to rescue them", which is pure, and utter, codswallop.

The Strange Messages That Haunted The Saudi Consulate In Turkey Last October | A Dream

The messages all appeared at the Saudi consulate in ?stanbul, last year, seemingly without human intervention. Traced on a mirror, entered into a computer, smeared on a bulletproof glass partition; fingerpainted in dark dried red on a wall; scratched on the newly waxed floor; traced in the pile of a freshly installed carpet; in stencil letters cut out from adjacent polystyrene dropout ceiling tiles; letters cut from the day's newspaper before it had been opened, the phrase arranged neatly and affixed somehow to the blank space at the top of the page; in dripping fresh wet red, under the royal images properly set in gilt frames on the wall.

The messages were all made out of the same seventeen letters.

They all appeared to make sense in relation to the events that took place in that building, on October 2, 2018.

And they haunted my dreams for months.

US warns allies they could be smashed with sanctions if they do military deals with Russia

India agreed to buy the S-400 surface-to-air missile system from Russia in 2018 for $5.2billion (£4.2billion). But they risk being hit with huge punishments under the 2017 Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act (CAATSA). Sanctions could kick in when the first payment for the weapon is made to Russia, unless Donald Trump grants a waiver.

This would seem unlikely as the US President continues to ramp up pressure on China, imposing billions of dollars worth of tariffs in the ongoing bitter trade war.

Mr Trump has also imposed several tariffs and sanctions on Iran as part of his “maximum pressure” approach on the country.

Last night he also slapped the European Union with trade tariffs totalling a massive £6billion.

House Republican leader demands Nancy Pelosi SUSPEND impeachment inquiry until Congress agrees on 'transparent and equitable rules' accusing her of failing to 'be fair' to Donald Trump

House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy on Thursday demanded Speaker Nancy Pelosi suspend the Democrats' impeachment inquiry into Donald Trump until Congress can agree on 'transparent and equitable rules' in the process.

His offensive move comes as some Republican lawmakers have been grumbling that the White House has not had a concise, planned response to the Democrats' move.

'I am writing to request you suspend all efforts surrounding your 'impeachment inquiry' until transparent and equitable rules and procedures are established to govern the inquiry,' McCarthy, a loyal Trump ally and prominent defender of the president, wrote.

Pelosi responded with a letter of her own, pointing out she has the power to launch an investigation without a vote from the full House.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The insanity continues, as the citizens of the US are made to look like the absolute laughing stock of the entire world.

White House Floats Potential DOJ Investigation Into ‘Joe Biden and His Family’

A little noticed White House messaging memo says President Trump asked Ukraine to comply with “any” future DOJ probe into Joe Biden and his son, Hunter.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I wish that there was a candidate left standing, who I could support fully for the Presidency; but what I am seeing, crumbling around this country, is a neglected infrastructure; people who promise anything to get elected; and are scamming what is left of this economy, and leaving We the People in ruins.

State of Emergency Declared in Ecuador Amid Mass Protests

Earlier, demonstrators took to the streets of Ecuador's major cities, blocking major roads in Quito and Guayaquil to protest the scrapping of fuel subsidies, part of the government's austerity measures aimed at reducing the fiscal budget.

Ecuadorian President Lenin Moreno declared a state of emergency in the country on Thursday amid nationwide protests which have paralysed much of the Latin American country's transport infrastructure, saying that his decisions to introduce austerity measures and slash subsidies "were firm," and that the state of emergency was aimed at reigning in "those who intend to cause chaos."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In all the countries where we are seeing this happening, the fault is never the fault of the people being penalized, but they understand that they will be the ones punished, and not the people who originally gouged the country; austerity is rarely the fault of the people who are suffering the most.

NK Tests Sub-Launched Ballistic Missile In Show Of "Second-Strike Capability"

North Korea has confirmed a new successful missile launch on Wednesday, which notably involved its first submarine-launched ballistic missile (SLBM) in three years, and a new type of "vertical mode" ballistic missile.

The test was "to contain external threats and bolster self-defense" as Reuters reports, and comes just two days ahead of working level talks with the United States in Stockholm, Sweden at the end of this week.

Peter Schiff: The Party Is Over

Via SchiffGold.com,

As Peter Schiff put it in his podcast, if the first trading day of the fourth quarter was a sign of things to come, bulls on Wall Street are in for a rough end to the year. In fact, Peter said the party is over and you don’t want to be the last one to leave.

The Dow was down 343.7 points and the Nasdaq shed 90 on a day that started out all sunshine and roses.

For a couple of days, the economic news wasn’t quite as bad as it could have been, or maybe some of the numbers actually were a little better or beat the numbers, and I think there was some idea that, hey, maybe the economy is not as bad as some people had feared, but then reality reared its ugly head at 10 a.m. when we got the ISM Manufacturing numbers.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The complete disparity between how President Trump characterises this economy, vs/ the actual numbers (unless one is a developer/seller of weaponry) is getting more and more insane on a daily basis.

Gunfights Rage as Iraq Protests Grow Nationwide

Public protests were launched nationwide over the past two days in Iraq, growing in intensity as demonstrators slam the lack of a post-war recovery from the ISIS conflict, and continued corruption woes.

While Prime Minister Abdul Mahdi confirmed the right of protesters to assemble, Iraq wasn’t just going to have public shows of dissent, so troops were out in force quickly, opening fire with live ammunition on the people, wounding hundreds.

Protesters and their supporters were armed in places as well, where security situations quickly worsened, and battles erupted. While this started in Baghdad and to the city’s immediate south, before long it was a nationwide issue.

Iraq’s government is responding as governments in the region so often have in similar situations, violent crackdowns, an indefinite curfew across Baghdad and some other cities, and cutting off more or less the entire country’s Internet access.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One intriguing question which must be asked, right now, is: where the heck is Muqtada Al Sadr, the most powerful guy in Iraq who has no professional role in the Iraq government?!?

Well, I cannot speculate as to the "why" or "what was he thinking?!?, but the following image comes to us on 11 September, 2019, from El Monitor.

What is Muqtada al-Sadr doing in Iran?!?

The article summary can be found here: "Muqtada al-Sadr appeared in a surprising video Sept. 11. At an assembly commemorating the third Shiite Imam Hussein Ibn Ali, Sadr can be seen sitting between Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and Quds Force commander Qasem Soleimani."

Muktada Al Sadr stands between Iran's Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Khamenei, and Iran's Quds Guard Commander, Quasem Soleimani.>

Is it possible that Al Sadr is using his strong position with the Iranian government, to ultimately plead for a quick conclusion to the Saudi military assaults in Yemen, and for reasonable terms here?!?

Because were I Prince bin Salman, that is what I would want immediately, and who better to send, than Al Sadr, to plead the Saudi's case before these two gentlemen?!?

I now make my living by releasing short videos on YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

I assumed you who subscribed to my feed or became Facebook "friends" would receive that video every Tuesday.

Wrong! Turns out social media companies send our posts to only some of our friends. (That's why I ask for your email address. Then they can't cut us off.)

Why might they cut us off?

One reason is that we'd drown in a fire hose of information if they showed us everything. The companies' algorithms cleverly just send us what the computer determines we'll like.

In the week since news outlets across the globe picked up a story WEHO TIMES broke last Monday about the death of a 26-year-old Texas youth at the home of a politically influential West Hollywood resident, a disturbing picture began emerging of a man who evidence suggests is equally comfortable mingling among America’s uppermost-echelon citizenry, as he is rattling the nerves of sex workers by way of alleged coercion, heaps of cash, piles of illicit drugs and allegedly involuntary injections of methamphetamine.

Clinton’s Reaction to Bernie’s Heart Issue Eerily Reminiscent of Gesture She Made When Gaddafi Died

Sanders, 78, was hospitalised on Wednesday after experiencing heart trouble, with doctors inserting two stents after discovering a blockage in one of his arteries.

Former First Lady and Democratic Presidential Nominee Hillary Clinton’s reaction to the news that her former Democratic rival had been hospitalised seemed oddly reminiscent of a gesture she made with her hands when Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi was brutally beaten and murdered by anti-government militia during the NATO-backed war in Libya in 2011.

Clinton and her daughter Chelsea appeared on ABC's The View on Wednesday to promote their new book. After being cheerfully introduced, cohost Whoopi Goldberg asked Clinton about Sanders.

“So, you know you just heard about Bernie,” Goldberg said. “Yes,” Clinton answered, raising her hands in a clasping motion.

“Sending him your best,” Goldberg continued, with Clinton responding “Wish him and hope for the best. [sic]”

DOJ DOCS SHOW ROSENSTEIN ADVISING MUELLER ‘THE BOSS’ DOESN’T KNOW ABOUT THEIR COMMUNICATIONS — JUDICIAL WATCH

(Washington, DC) Judicial Watch released 145 pages of Rod Rosenstein’s communications that include a one-line email from Rod Rosenstein to Robert Mueller stating, “The boss and his staff do not know about our discussions” and “off the record” emails with major media outlets around the date of Mueller’s appointment.

Judicial Watch filed the lawsuit after the DOJ failed to respond to a September 21, 2018, Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of Justice (No. 1:19-cv-00481)). Judicial Watch seeks:

Any and all e-mails, text messages, or other records of communication addressed to or received by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein between May 8, 2017, and May 22, 2017.

Auto Loans Stretch To Eight Years To Accommodate Irresponsible Car Buyers

About a third of all US auto loans issued today are stretching out to seven years, according to the Wall Street Journal. By comparison, a decade ago, the seven-year loan only made up about 10% of all loans.

Why? Because that's the only type of loan increasingly more Americans can afford to amortize.

The longer loan durations are a clear sign that the American middle class is growing broker by the day, and, as we pointed out in our recent article about millennials putting items like sneakers and sweaters on installment plans, the US consumer's creeping debt burden is, among other things, the result of auto prices growing rapidly while real incomes have barely budged. It is also the result of little to no financial education piled on top of a pathological shopping addiction.

Saudi Elites Question MbS' Ability To Lead World's Largest Oil Exporter After Aramco Attack

Sources told Reuters that members within Saudi Arabia's ruling family and business elites are increasingly becoming frustrated with Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MbS) after the largest-ever attack on Saudi oil facilities on September 14, reported Reuters.

Distinguished members within the ruling Al Saud family have expressed deep concern about MbS' ability to defend and lead the world's largest oil exporter, according to a senior foreign diplomat and five sources with ties to the Al Saud family, all spoke on condition of anonymity to Reuters.

Some of the sources said the September 14 attacks fueled unwanted tensions in the Middle East, especially the threat of imminent war with Iran.

"There is a lot of resentment" about the crown prince's ability to lead, said one of the sources, a member of the Saudi elite with royal connections. "How were they not able to detect the attack?"

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Well, can you blame the Royal House of Saud. that they are absolutely gobsmacked by this guy's inability to put down "primitive hostiles", the Houthis in Yemen, who have managed to embarrass Saudi Arabia's military with both some incredible hits on Saudi oil refinery structure, and the capture of Saudi forces inside Saudi Arabia, plus that nasty little carving up of Adnan Kashoggi, shrieking his lungs out while getting dismembered, about which the whole damn world knows?!?

Timing... is everything.

And over this last weekend, PBS aired a documentary indicating that Prince Mohammed bin Salman wanted to recognize Israel, in return for the US' assistance in getting rid of the Iranian oligarchy running the country.

MbS ‘Ready to Recognize Israel in Return for US Help’

But remember: this documentary was shot in 2017; not this last weekend.

So the timing of its release was intended to create a very different mindset of the Saudi Royal Family than that upon which many Americans had based their understanding of this country and its leadership.

We notice the following, printed last year, regarding the personal wealth of this family:

Saudi Family's Walth Could be more than $ 1 trillion

Were I Prince Salman, I would immediately request a peace deal with the Houthis, creating as favorable a set of circumstances for Saudi Arabia as was humanly possible.

I would then formally reach out to Israel for a trade deal which not only benefits Israel, but the entire Middle East, including Gaza and the West Bank (for which the current Kusher proposal has absolutely nothing, except exile, extinction and despair).

And the recurring question in MbS's head should be the following; "I have about 2,000 relatives, out of the 12,000 in the family who actually hold the purse strings here.

Now, which of those 2,000 relatives have both assassins on speed dial, and a very single-minded desire to have me "neutralized", in the worst possible way for a human to die?!?!?

Putin Shames Greta Thunberg And Her Handlers Over Environmental Agenda

Russian President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday chided Swedish environmentalist Greta Thunberg and her adult handlers, after the 16-year-old gave an emotional speech at the UN late last month.

"Sure, Greta is kind, but emotions should not control this issue," said Putin.

"Go and explain to developing countries why they should continue living in poverty and not be like Sweden," he added, before saying that it was deplorable how some groups are using Thunberg to achieve their own goals.

In her speech last week, Thunberg lashed out at the United Nations - saying "You have stolen my dreams and my childhood with your empty words."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Putin said this gently, and I am glad that he did say what he said in this manner.

And BTW, did you know that Putin and his ex-wife, adopted two German girls when they were very young?!? The Women in Putin's Life

I think that having been a part of raising two girls, who were 16 within a year of each other, gave Putin a knowledge and wisdom about how to speak to her address in the way he did.

OH, and BTW: this gal is an actor, and already has a page at IMBD:

Greta Thungerg

It appears that her "Save the World" tour has been orchestrated to get her involved with that, by capturing the sympathies of the "warmistas", and possibly cold hard cash for some other, more auspicious "face time" for herself..

We Finally Understand How Destructive Negative Interest Rates Actually Are

Submitted by Tuomas Malinen is a Chief Economist of GnS Economics and an Adjunct Professor of Economics at the University of Helsinki.

We are in the midst of a strange economic experiment. Vast quantities of negative-yielding debt are currently sloshing around the global economy. While the amount of negative-yielding bonds has dropped recently from a mind-boggling number in excess of $17 trillion, reinvigorated central bank easing across the globe ensures that this reduction is only temporary.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The most logical thing individual consumers, with a brain, can do, is get out of as much credit card debt as is humanly possible.

And please, at the risk of sounding like a chipped CD (and as a musician and composer, I HATE when that happens!!) please have only enough money in the bank to pay the bills; keep the rest under your personal control.

Start looking at investing in silver and gold, which are, in an of themselves, mediums of financial exchange. And with the silver, you are looking for "melt value"; not numismatic value (that is a pretty, artsy-looking coin, but has no real value, other than its melt value, to most collectors.)

Learn the "little cheats" that can make a real difference in your financial stability; and I am talking about the little things which eat up money every month, and should not. "Brown bagging" it for lunch, and bringing your own coffee/ latte to the office or to the workspace?!? This is an amazing help.

Learning to "slow-cook" meats in the oven, or crock pot?!? Another way to insure your family (even if it is a family of 1), has good healthy food, and you can freeze portions of it for later.

And to our ladies and gents out there, who are still purchasing clothing with the tags "dry clean only", please STOP IT; dry cleaning is, generally, not great for the environment, and is a money hog for your budget. If you still have a lot of stuff like this, it may be time to hold a yard sale, and then, only look for those nice bits of clothing which survive washing and drying well.

"This Is A Major Risk": France Rolls Out New Facial Recognition Technology

Is this how French President Emmanuel Macron is choosing to celebrate 70 years of Communist rule?

In a plan that sounds eerily similar to China's 'social credit score' system, Macron and the French Interior Ministry are pushing ahead plans to launch a national facial-recognition program, arguing that it "will make the state more efficient."

According to Bloomberg, the ID program, known as "Alicem", is set to be rolled out in November, after the launch was moved forward from an end-of-year timeline.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have mentioned that this kind of Orwellian software would soon be unleashed by Western governments against their own people; it 's just that France decided to be "ahead of the curve", by rolling it out, just after after the Chinese celebrateD the 70th year of the Communist takeover here.

And one of two things are possible here; either Macron has done this as a a gesture of defiance against those who are legitimately, logically, and peacefully, protesting elements of his regime for which they do not care; or this was absolutely timed to coincide with the Chinese Communist 70th anniversary of their having taken over the country, to say to France's people "We can do to you what the Communists have done to the people of their country who DON'T LIKE US!!."

MBS must shelve his vicious war in Yemen

Never underestimate the power of blowback. Right now, Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman (MBS), the de facto ruler of the House of Saud, is staring at it, an ominous abyss opened by the Houthis in Yemen.

This past weekend, Yemeni Armed Forces spokesman Brigadier Yahya al-Sari clinically described how Ansarallah, also known as the Houthi rebel movement, aided by what Yemenis describe as “popular committees,” captured three Saudi brigades of 2,400 – ragged – soldiers, plus Yemeni and Sudanese mercenaries as well as several hundred battle vehicles. At least 500 Saudi soldiers were killed, Ansarallah said. (A spokesman for the Saudi-led coalition denied the claim).

Robots are hurting American wages: Study finds the national income has dropped to 56% as workers fear asking for raises in case they are replaced by automation

The study suggests that employees that employees feel they have lost their bargaining power when it comes to asking for a raise out of fear they may be replaced by a robot.

'Businesses have more options to automate hard-to-fill positions now than in the past,' the study authors write. 'With rapid advances in robotics and artificial intelligence, robots can perform more jobs and tasks that required human skills only a few years ago.'

Most would think that a strong labor market in the US would mean a boom in wages, but as the use of robotics rises, the lower the national income becomes.

Economists at the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco found that there has been a decline from about 63 percent in 2000 to 56 percent in 2018, as first reported by Bloomberg.

Google goes full-throttle with health censorship, doubles down on Big Pharma drugs and disease

Google has gone all-in with Big Pharma to push drugs and disease, while simultaneously blocking access to life-saving health information. Gone are the days when people could easily find information on nutrition, supplements, natural remedies and alternative therapies. But Google’s not stopping at censorship for health and wellness — the tech giant is also pushing pro-Big Pharma propaganda on their search engine. From trying to cover-up the opioid epidemic and Big Pharma’s death toll, to discrediting and silencing the natural health community, Google’s evil truly knows no bounds. For a company that once boasted the motto, “Don’t be evil,” things have surely gone downhill fast.

MAGA Op-ed Blames Progressives for Elite Plan to Cull the Herd

The latest episode of the highly polarizing and wholly manufactured Left vs. Right war of words and deeds—with a few Antifa and Proud Boys aggravated assaults thrown in—concerns our dystopian near-future.

The Push For Mandatory Vaccines Is Galvanizing A Resistance Movement

The Facts:Severe mandatory vaccination laws are suddenly popping up and getting passed in several states of late, but not without a fierce and growing opposition.
Reflect On:Will these mandatory vaccine laws, which are not about vaccines but rather about our individual sovereignty, catalyze us towards a greater emancipation from governmental interference and control?
The push for mandatory vaccines seems to be gaining momentum in the United States. To be more precise, states are beginning to look more at removing exemptions which currently allow non-vaccinated children to attend school.

Dozens of Extreme Leftist Congressional Democrats Are Members of the Communist Party In Pelosi Led Coup Against the USA

Trevor Loudon's expert research skills are on display as dozens of modern Democrats are discovered to have close ties to the Democratic Socialists and the American Communist Party. Many of them traveled to Cuba , several times, prior to it being legal. Here is the story and one will quickly see that they are working to bring down the American government. This is an eye-opening presentation that needs to go far and wide. Our country and our victim are on under attack. This is both a revolution and coup at the same time.

GET READY: It’s time to start taking names of all the traitors pushing the fabricated “impeachment” coup against this nation

GET READY: It’s time to start taking names of all the traitors pushing the fabricated “impeachment” coup against this nation
Monday, September 30, 2019 by: Mike Adams

(Natural News) Start noting the names, if you haven’t already. All the fake news media hacks who pretend to be journalists. All the “crisis actor” Democrat lawmakers who are feigning outrage over a non-event “whistleblower” scandal that was completely fabricated by the CIA. All the deep state traitors who have once again proven they are not merely illegally spying on the U.S. President but actively waging a “CIA coup” against America. As Ron Paul now warns:

Where Are the Indictments of Those Implicated in the Coup Attempt Against Trump?

In the 1970s Irving Kristol declared Republicans to be the “stupid party.” How correct he has proven to be. Russiagate and now this latest coup attempt to overthrow the elected president of the United States are acts of sedition.

That the Democrats and their handlers have an ongoing coup against the President of the United States is undeniable. High treason is written all over it. The few educated and aware Americans who still exist can see it clearly. We are watching to see if the insouciant American people succumb to propaganda that is terminating the United States. Something will still be here, but it won’t be America.

The coming collapse and instability of “the world’s only superpower” is going to be stunning.

Somali Militants Raid American Military Base Near Mogadishu

A US special forces military base that's also used to launch drone strikes on Al Qaeda and ISIS factions active in North Africa was attacked by a band of Somali insurgents on Monday, who also carried out an attack on a European military convoy, the AFP and Reuters report.

he American base, reportedly located in the town of Baledogle, was hit with an explosive, followed by small arms fire. The base is located about 60 miles west of Mogadishu, the Somali capital. It was unclear whether anybody was seriously injured during the attack.

The militant group Al Shabaab took credit for the string of attacks, and issued a statement about the raid on the American base.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why is it that all of a sudden, forces with which the US military used to be able to "wipe the floor", have become so stunningly clever, that attacks like this have become commonplace for our troops in Africa?!?

Ron Paul Asks: "Impeachment... Or CIA Coup?"

Authored by Ron Paul via The Ron Paul Institute for Peace & Prosperity,

You don’t need to be a supporter of President Trump to be concerned about the efforts to remove him from office. Last week House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced impeachment proceedings against the President over a phone call made to the President of Ukraine. According to the White House record of the call, the President asked his Ukrainian counterpart to look into whether there is any evidence of Ukrainian meddling in the 2016 election and then mentioned that a lot of people were talking about how former US Vice President Joe Biden stopped the prosecution of his son who was under investigation for corruption in Ukraine.

Democrats, who spent more than two years convinced that “Russiagate” would enable them to remove Trump from office only to have their hopes dashed by the Mueller Report, now believe they have their smoking gun in this phone call.

Saudi leaders sent messages to Iran's president: Spokesman

The spokesman for Iranian President Hassan Rouhani's administration has confirmed that Saudi leaders have been sending messages to Iran's president through a head of state, though refraining to give any details on the nature of those messages.

Ali Rabiei made the remarks during his weekly press briefing in Tehran on Monday, when he was asked about reports denoting that the Saudi leadership has been sending messages to Iran's chief executive.

“Yes, this is true that they have sent messages to Mr. Rouhani through a head of state,” Rabiei noted, adding, “We must see signs of it [Saudi’s goodwill] without any ambiguity, and the first sign of it is to stop the aggression against Yemen and put an end to the massacre of Yemenis.”

in his interview with 60 Minutes, Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman tried to do some damage control on the assassination of Jamal Khashoggi, and the ongoing war in Yemen. The focus ultimately was brought back to the Saudis’ favorite topic, Iran.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The above bit comes from the Iranian blog, Presstv.com, making it appear that the Houth military triumphs in Saudi Arabia, are giving that country a reason to begin to attempt to open some kind of dialogue their Iranian counterparts in Tehran, something which would hardly been imaginable, as a possible step, even a month ago.

Unfortunately, the piece in antiwar.com, would have the world think the opposite, and is titled: Saudi Prince Warns of Escalation With Iran, Higher Oil Prices<

The problem for this battered, recycled threat to become resurgent, is that Iran hasn't really done anything wrong, other that refuse to sell their oil in US dollars.

And it did, until very recently honor the P5+1 deal, until, of course, the US government reneged on it earlier this year, as a personal favor from President Trump to Israel's Prime Minister, Netanyahu, and to his most prolific US suporter, Sheldon Adelson.

The Houthi timing on this attack, was nothing less than brilliant, even if that brilliance might well be chalked up to " amazing unexpectedly good timing" on the Houthi's part, relative to what is happening in the US geopolitical-grinder: because here you have Saudi Arabia's BFF in the Middle East, the ruler of the Unhinged, Surveilled State of Amerika, chokingly caught up in the throes of yet another impeachment "wang-dangorama", this time concerning Ukraine, and American Pols on both sides of the isle, terrified that they will lose their "seat at the public trough.

I have not yet heard one note from those alleged "Congressional Representatives on this issue, as they are so completely focused on not getting impeached, or charged, that suddenly, it appears that Iran and Saudi Arabia are suddenly, and absolutely, on their own here.

Unless President Trump is thoroughly ready to create some very bold actions
to prevent this from escalating into a fell-scale war (unless that is the absolute goal of bringing Iran down,, that will be precisely what he will be getting; and with the added caveat, that Russia will not allow Iran to go down in flames, if there is something they can do to prevent it.

Mr. President, please; War with Iran, over Yemen?!?

And just one final question, sir; when will the US government be ready to declare a draft, which will be horrifically necessary, if we declare war against Iran?!? The above bit comes from the Iranian blog, Presstv.com, making it appear that the Houth military triumphs in Saudi Arabia, are giving that country a reason to begin to attempt to open some kind of dialogue their Iranian counterparts in Tehran, something which would hardly been imaginable, as a possible step, even a month ago.

Unless President Trump is thoroughly ready to create some very bold actions
to prevent this from escalating into a full-scale war, that will be precisely what he will be getting; and with the added caveat, that Russia will not allow Iran to go down in flames, if there is something they can do to prevent it.

With Biden and Trump in the political fight for their lives, I would like both of them to remember a phrase from both physics and politics; "nature abhors a vacuum"; so what happens now if the Saudis are militarily defeated by those Houthi forces, who were " held in so low in esteem" they weren't worthy of any consideration whatsoever, just a couple of months ago, but have become really formidable and capable fighters as well as diplomats?!?

Perhaps now, might be a time for intelligent, fresh thinking on this issue, that does not get the US military dragged down into another sucking, sinkhole of another protracted war.

The Shot Heard Round the World: The Battles of Lexington and Concord

The Shot Heard Round the World:
The Battles of Lexington and Concord

By the rude bridge that arched the flood,
Their flag to April's breeze unfurled,
Here once the embattled farmers stood,
And fired the shot heard round the world.
The foe long since in silence slept;
Alike the conqueror silent sleeps;
And Time the ruined bridge has swept
Down the dark stream which seaward creeps.
On this green bank, by this soft stream,
We set to-day a votive stone;
That memory may their deed redeem,
When, like our sires, our sons are gone.
Spirit, that made those heroes dare
To die, and leave their children free,
Bid Time and Nature gently spare

Former NYPD commissioner calls Trump whistleblower a 'covert operative' who participated in an 'attempted coup'

These people need to be arrested and indicted for Sedition and Treason.

Former NYPD commissioner and author Bernard Kerik called the Trump whistleblower a "covert operative" on "Fox & Friends" Monday, and said the unidentified government worker is participating in an "attempted coup" against the current administration in concert with some lawmakers.

"I can't wait for these so-called hearings," he said. "Because I think you're going to find out there [were] communications between the congressional staff and the alleged whistleblower. I don't like calling him a whistleblower. He's a covert operative that was within the administration that put this stuff out there."

"[He] had no personal knowledge," Kerik continued. "They changed that reporting requirement, basically, so this guy could get this thing public. It's nonsense."

Health secretary 'looking seriously' at compulsory vaccines for schoolchildren

The health secretary has said he is "looking very seriously" at making vaccinations compulsory for all children going to school in England.

Some experts have suggested it may be necessary to address falling rates of immunisation and a surge in diseases like measles.

Matt Hancock told an event at the Tory conference he had taken legal advice this week on how to go about it.

Unvaccinated children were "putting other children at risk", he said.

YEMEN: HOUTHIS RELEASE 350 PRISONERS INCLUDING 3 SAUDIS

This is the most significant of a string of cross-border raids carried out by the Houthis, although Saudi Arabia has yet to confirm the attack.

The Houthi’s Committee for Prisoners Affairs (NCPA) said: “We have presented to the United Nations a unilateral initiative to release 350 prisoners and detainees from the other party who were included in the Stockholm agreement statements,”

Abdul Qader Al-Murtada, head of the NCPA, explained that among the released prisoners are all the inmates who survived from the Saudi air strikes on Dhamar prison earlier this month, which killed over 100 non-combatants.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF these claims are independently verified, this may well be a turning point in the Saudi war against Yemen; if not, expect to see a carpet bombing of Yemen, the likes of which humankind has not seen, since the World War II carpet bombing attacks.

TWITTER EDITORIAL EXECUTIVE IS BRITISH ARMY ‘PSYOPS’ SOLDIER – REPORT

SOURCE: RT
A high-level Twitter executive with editorial responsibility for the Middle East is also a part-time British Army officer in their psychological warfare unit, according to a report.
The Middle East Eye (MEE) claim that Gordon MacMillan, head of editorial for Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA), also serves with the 77th Brigade, a unit set up in 2015 in order to find “non-lethal” ways of waging war.

The 77th Brigade is an ‘information warfare’ operation that utilizes social media platforms such as Twitter, Instagram and Facebook to develop “behavioral change” projects in regions such as the Middle East.

It brings together a variety of military units such as Media Operations and the 15 Psychological Operations Group. The group, before it was absorbed into the 77th Brigade, deployed commanders in the provision of psychological operations in operational and tactical environments.

HEAD OF SAUDI KING’S SECURITY DETAIL SHOT DEAD IN MYSTERIOUS CIRCUMSTANCES

Details of al-Fagham’s killing remain sparse. Saudi officials began posting social-media messages of condolence about al-Fagham and his family late on Saturday evening. It wasn’t until late on Sunday evening that the kingdom’s official media began to publish official reports of al-Fagham’s demise. State-run Saudi television said that al-Fagham, whom it described as a “bodyguard of the custodian of the two holy mosques”, had been killed following a “dispute of a personal nature”. A subsequent television report stated that al-Fagham had died on Saturday evening at a house belonging to a close friend of his in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia’s second-largest city, which is located on the shores of the Red Sea.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder, with the nearly Byzantine shadow conflicts always bubbling to some degree, in the Saudi Bowels of Power, if this assassination was to "cross off" detractors to the Butcher of Yemen's reign (Yes, THAT GUY: Prince Mohammed bin Salman), or it it might be a warning from other elements in both the government and the royal family, that Bin Salman has strayed too far in Yemen and beyond, to cause their country to look like a Pariah failed-state, as does Israel right now in its treatment of Palestinians.

CIA AND CFR WORK TOGETHER TO DESTROY TRUTH

Early last year, the Swiss Propaganda Research center (SPR) published information cementing into place something many of us already know—the “mainstream” corporate media is controlled by the Council on Foreign Relations.

“It is no secret that over the last 4 decades, mainstream media has been consolidated from dozens of competing companies to only six,” writes Matt Agorist of The Free Thought Project. “Hundreds of channels, websites, news outlets, newspapers, and magazines, making up ninety percent of all media is controlled by very few people—giving Americans the illusion of choice… Top journalists and executives from all major media companies are integrated into the CFR.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Welcome, Allegedly Awakened Ones, to the painfully true reality of your ever-more miserable lives.

I say this because, if you cannot see beyond the smoke-screen, squid ink with which you are being dosed 24/7 by the "One Ring to Rule us All" twisted logic vice-grip on the narrative, courtesy of the waresspondents and presstitutes, you have, in fact, simply become one of a bunch of very useful idiots.

And for whom?!?

For those who want to continue to see you continually suppressed, depressed, or regressed, to the point where you refuse to ask those butt-ugly, logical, reasonable questions,which cannot be made to go away.

As most of you know, who read this site, as a Christian Pacifist activist, I never counsel violence, nor would I; but I think that there is a Biblical invocation which would definitely apply today, and that is "Be ye wise as serpents, but as harmless as doves." (Matthew 10).

First, it means don't hurt people; know with whom you can speak about these issues, and those you cannot. Share, one on one, what you learn here, and at other places which refuse to be cowed, as long as they are allowed to exist.

Secondly, if you are still on TwitFace, get off, immediately; all information you share is scanned, held, and then shipped to the "proper authorities", and these entities will be very quick to deplatform you, and never explaining why they have done so.

They have become an arm of government in and unto itself, which now consists of: Legislative; Executive; Judicial; "Permitted Journalism", and Surveillance (Twitface's job).

This will not be explained to you in Civics Classes (do they even have Civics classes anymore?!?), so you need to get up to speed about the mechanisms Twitface uses to "disappear" content of which the US Deep State does not approve.

It seems like Democrats are racing against the clock to impeach Trump over a nothing burger in Ukraine.

They seem fully willing to sacrifice Joe Biden to do it.

It seems that they want to fully control the Ukraine narrative before the whole truth comes out, because Joe Biden is not the only key Democrat that has some explaining to do about Ukraine dealings.Corruption runs deep in the Deep State!

No wonder the Democrat House wants to get rid of President Trump now. Speaker Pelosi and Democrat Rep. Adam Schiff are both connected to a Ukrainian arms dealer. This is why they lie in front of the nation. They are afraid of their own deeds being uncovered!

Attempted gun confiscation triggered American Revolution: Letter to the Editor

I am dismayed by what I have been reading, hearing and seeing on the 2nd Amendment. People calling for curbs on the 2nd Amendment.

These people seem to forget the 2nd Amendment protects the freedom of speech, freedom of the press, freedom of religion and freedom of assembly. The Founding Fathers realized an armed citizenry is essential to keep a tyrannical government at bay.

What most people fail to realize (because they are not taught it) is the match that ignited America’s War for Independence was not excessive taxes, or the lack of representation, or trade restrictions, or the lack of trial by jury (as important as these issues were). The match that ignited America’s War for Independence was attempted gun confiscation.

Dems Propose First Gun Grab Since Lexington And Concord

Mandatory gun buyback' is a silly euphemism.
By David Harsanyi

What Democrats propose can be more accurately described as “the first American gun confiscation effort since Lexington and Concord,” or some variation on that theme.

I’m certain nothing in the Second Amendment mentions hunting, because the right of self-defense—an individual concern, as well as a collective one—has nothing to do with shooting deer, and everything to do with protecting Americans from those who endeavor to strip them of their inalienable rights.

If you think you’re going to have overwhelming support for “mandatory gun buybacks” when people learn that you’re really talking about “the confiscation of 20 million guns,” you’re fooling yourself.

The significance of the “Shot Heard Round the World” is nicely summed up by Chuck Baldwin. He submits that these “two elements of American history are lost to the vast majority of historians today: 1) it was attempted gun confiscation by the British troops that ignited America’s War for Independence, and 2) it was a pastor and his flock that mostly comprised the “Minutemen” who fired the shots that started our great Revolution.”

#Greta Thunberg is decoy, Fossil Free-groups funded by billionaires who also fund Big Oil. Somebody’s manipulating Oil

The public child abuse in using Greta Thunberg to push the Fossil Free campaign to end investments in oil and gas world-wide, has far wealthier sponsors than local Swedish businessmen such as Ingmar Renzhog and Bo Thorén. The billion dollar climate-change industry is hyped up for a reason.

Soros investments in oil and gas far overshadow his investment in #FossilFree eco-environmental groups. He is not the only leftwing billionaire donating to end oil, and at the same time investing heavily in oil and gas.

One may assume that the Oil and Gas industry is currently subjected to a billionaire-funded, eco-group like “Arab Spring” where the mainstream media plays its usual role in hyping up sentiments. Somebody’s manipulating the industry to profit massively once the bubble bursts and the market needs more energy, writes historian, author and founder of Herland Report, Hanne Nabintu Herland.

Something curious is happening in Saudi Arabia and Yemen.

For the second time in a month the Yemeni forces aligned with the Houthi surrounded and captured brigade size forces of Saudi soldiers and mercenaries. The Houthi media report that 2,400 fighters and several hundred vehicles were capture. The reports say that 500 Saudi soldiers were killed.

The personal bodyguard of the Saudi King Salman has been killed. The official claim is that it was during a personal dispute. Conveniently the shooter is also dead.

Lawful Gun Owners Defended Their Lives and Livelihoods in August

It seems as though every day another celebrity or politician demands that we place more severe restrictions on the ability of law-abiding citizens to exercise their constitutional right to keep and bear arms.

Unlike many of these celebrities and politicians, most of us do not live in safe, gated communities or spend much of our day protected by professional armed security.

America is currently in the midst of a decade of historically low rates of violent crime, including gun-related crime, but Americans still use their firearms to defend themselves between 500,000 and 3 million times every year.

This is not just some conservative talking point, either, but a reality that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in a 2013 report, concluded has been found “by almost all major studies” on the issue.

Media Defending CIA’s “Whistleblower” After Ignoring Actual Whistleblowers

(CJ) The word “whistleblower” has been trending in news headlines lately, but not for the reasons that any sane person might hope for.

So who is this “savvy official”? Who is this courageous whistleblower who boldly shone the light of truth upon the mechanisms of power in the interests of the common man?

Well believe it or not, according to The New York Times this brave, noble whistleblower who the mainstream media are currently championing is an officer for the Central Intelligence Agency.

So there you have it. A mysterious stranger from the lying, torturing, propagandizing, drug trafficking, assassinating, coup-staging, warmongering, psychopathic CIA was working in the White House, heroically provided the political/media class with politically powerful information out of the goodness of his heart, and then vanished off into the Langley sunset.

he most trusted personal bodyguard of the king of Saudi Arabia has been shot dead by an angered friend, in a dramatic turn of events. The suspected killer was then killed in an intense shootout with police.
The kingdom’s state-run media initially reported that Major General Abdulziz al-Fagham was gunned down after having “a personal dispute” at a friend’s house in the city of Jeddah on the Red Sea coast, without providing any details.

NYC Human Rights Commission Says Using Term ‘Illegal Alien’ Is ‘Unlawful’

Using the term “illegal alien” with an intent to offend is now considered unlawful discrimination, according to New York City’s Commission on Human Rights.

“Furthermore, the use of the terms ‘illegal alien’ and ‘illegals,’ with the intent to demean, humiliate, or offend a patron, amounts to unlawful discrimination under the [New York City Human Rights Law],” the document released Wednesday by the commission stated.

The document added that use of these terms “may carry negative connotations and dehumanize immigrants, marking them as ‘other.’”

If these restrictions are violated, offenders could be forced to pay up to $250,000 in fines, according to the New York Post.

STUDY SHOWS MASSIVE IQ DECREASE IN MALES WITH FLUORIDE: JAMA PEDIATRICS JOURNAL EDITORS STUNNED

SOURCE: CRYPTOGON
Via: James Lyons-Weiler:

In reference to a study, entitled “Association Between Maternal Fluoride Exposure During Pregnancy and IQ Scores in Offsprings in Canada”[1], published in JAMA Pediatrics, the journal editors were stunned by a finding that fluoridated water exposure in mothers during pregnancy reduces the IQ of their sons.

The study found that in boys, a 1 mg/L increase in the maternal urine fluoride concentration led to a 5-point decrease in boys’ IQs.

Dimitri Christakis and Frederick Rivara of JAMA Pediatrics, in a podcast, compare the findings as overturning decades-old presumptions of safety of fluoridated water.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What the Hell... were those selling municipalities and cities the concept of fluoridation, and attempting to demonize those who were concerned as "ding-bats."

But what I want to see happen here, is a forensic study of every company which sold flouridation to its hapless victims, and find out just who knew, and when, that this was a possibility, but squelched the research, and kept selling its flouridation, , even as they knew that the outcome, demonstrated scientifically, that it is a clear and present danger to child development.

IF those companies still exist, I want to see those executives who signed off on keeping this negative data secret, accused, convicted, and sentenced to individual terms, and not in a club Fed.

Apparently, this ... is the only thing some executives understand; a jail sentence which will destroy their future chances for employment, and a company whose name will be forever attached to this practice of having negative data, then covering it up.

GOOGLE ROLLS OUT "ORWELLIAN NIGHTMARE" TECHNOLOGY TO SPY ON YOU IN YOUR HOME

OURCE: SHTFPLAN.COM
Google’s new Nest Hub Max is a smart display unit that comes equipped with a 6.5-megapixel facial recognition camera that identifies you and monitors all your actions – inside your own home.

And the Orwellian icing on the cake is that it is not equipped with a physical shutter to forcibly prevent it from monitoring what’s happening in your home.

Clearly, there are real reasons to be concerned about Google’s latest tech offering, and those who wish to protect their online privacy might do better to steer well clear of it.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If you are thinking, "What could possibly go wrong here, if the person subscribing to this service, once it is implemented, decides to use it aggressively?!? I mean, isn't this what the technology was created to do?@?"

Well, not so fast, my friends; because if it has its way, the Unhinged Surveilled Government of Amerika, will find reasons which will compel all of its citizens, and residents, to have such a device surveilling them, and all those in their offices and conference rooms, every single one of its netizens, 24/7.

There will be fines, prison sentences, or worse, to ensure compliance.

In fact, I can hear that first infomercial for this product, ringing in my ears, and assaulting my visual cortex right now, as the "hero concept".

This message is "Comply... or Die!!!""

This will be presented as the extremely horrific life, and ultimate, grisly death of a non-complier, (or, as an NC, as they are known, with no name, and just a code number tattooed on their backs) awash with graphicly lascivious images which leave utterly nothing to the imagination.

"Forced Compliance" is not a new concept for either Google, or this Government.

And if the US government embraces this technology as quickly, and robustly as is potentially possible, that very potential for massive abuse from this technology alone, should scare the very stuffing out of you.

For those of you with kids and skills, please get the hell out of this country, just as soon as you are able; the once-vaunted "American Dream", has well and truly morphed into "The American Nightmare.", and the chances for that nightmare's reversal, appear to be slim to none, at this point in America's Narrative.

Until such a device is mandated by this government, I refuse to have one installed.

But without the migrants, who will do the jobs that ‘no one wants’?

A lie repeated a thousand times: “we need [non-European] immigrants.”

We are told constantly by the mainstream media and academia that without these non-European immigrants many jobs would not be occupied, many vacancies would be left unfilled and this would be a detriment to our business fabric and the economy in general.

“Who will clean the bathrooms?” They tell us. Or, they ask “who would work in our shopping centres or public construction sites? Who would drive our buses or trains? This is an obvious fallacy that, however, has easy adhesion in the ears of the majority given what you see.

30 of the Biggest Hoaxes & Lies Pushed on Americans

Confused by what’s real and what’s a hoax or a flat-out lie? The magnitude of hoaxes and lies being perpetrated by Deep State is so expansive, they had to cover their tracks by having Google/YouTube conceal search results for “hoax,” “hoax crisis actors,” and “false flags.” Chew on that for a moment, then kick back with a cup of coffee and expand your consciousness with just how many hoaxes and lies have been perpetrated on the American people. Since the exposure of Google/YouTube, they have reversed their Blacklist, but make no mistake, they are owned.

They have a narrative to fulfill, and power-hungry allegiances to serve. Tempted by money and control, feeding desires of wickedness and evil, they care not who they harm in the process. They care not who they steamroll, whose lives are shattered, and those who are raped or murdered along the way. They. Care. Not.

AG Barr: Indict & Prosecute These Governors & Mayors

"But, what about state legislators who have voted to give these criminals driver's licenses so they can work? Remember what the usurper in the White House, Obama/Soetoro said, "When I was a state senator in Illinois, I voted to require that illegal aliens get trained, get a license, get insurance to protect public safety. That was my intention. The problem we have here is not driver's licenses. Undocumented workers do not come here to drive. They're here to work."

"They're here to work? They have no right to even be in this country, much less help themselves to jobs that belong to Americans. Comrade Obama wants to reward them by stealing the fruits of your labor to train them, give them driver's licenses and steal American jobs. This is the morally bankrupt individual people voted for to bring "change" and "hope." Marxist Obama brought more of the same and worse. Juan McCain stands right next to him on this issue.

ESCOBAR: HOW YEMEN'S HOUTHIS ARE BRINGING DOWN A GOLIATH

SOURCE: PEPE ESCOBAR VIA THE SAKER

“It is clear to us that Iran bears responsibility for this attack. There is no other plausible explanation. We support ongoing investigations to establish further details.”

The statement above was not written by Franz Kafka. In fact, it was written by a Kafka derivative: Brussels-based European bureaucracy. The Merkel-Macron-Johnson trio, representing Germany, France and the UK, seems to know what no “ongoing investigation” has unearthed: that Tehran was definitively responsible for the twin aerial strikes on Saudi oil installations.

“There is no other plausible explanation” translates as the occultation of Yemen. Yemen only features as the pounding ground of a vicious Saudi war, de facto supported by Washington and London and conducted with US and UK weapons, which has generated a horrendous humanitarian crisis.

So Iran is the culprit, no evidence provided, end of story, even if the “investigation continues.”

NESTLE STEPS UP TESTING AFTER FINDING HIGH LEVELS OF DANGEROUS WEEDKILLER IN COFFEE BEANS

SOURCE: ZEROHEDGE

Apparently, beer and wine aren't the only beverages containing surprisingly high levels of glyphosate, a purported carcinogen and one of the most widely used herbicides in the world (it's the main ingredient in the weed killer Roundup).

Swiss food and beverage behemoth Nestle warned its suppliers that it will be performing more tests on coffee beans after the company found higher levels of the weedkiller glyphosate - the key ingredient of weedkiller Roundup, originally designed and sold by Monsanto.

For those who aren't familiar with the controversial agro-chemical, Glyphosate has found itself at the center of a flood of lawsuits against Monsanto and its new owner, Bayer, as alleged victims claim that Roundup causes cancer. After buying Monsanto for $63 billion, Bayer is facing billions of dollars of lawsuits that have hammered the company's shares.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Hmmmmm... now let me guess; is this not the same company whose chair emeritus, Peter Brabeck-Letmathe, famously made the statement, on camera, that Water Should NOT Be A Human Right (VIDEO)?!?

The collapse will be LOCAL: Former military intelligence, special forces veterans explain why your proximity to left-wing cities may determine your fate

(Natural News) With all the talk about the risk for civil war in America — and the new Nancy Pelosi push for impeachment that will drive America into more conflict — it’s crucial to realize how your proximity to left-wing population density hubs will largely determine your fate.

Here’s what I learned, in the aggregate, from multiple sources, many of whom have operated inside collapsing, war-torn cities and countries:

There won’t be a nationwide kinetic civil war fought like America’s first Civil War. Instead, outbreaks of kinetic violence will be very limited to the areas in and around high-density population centers dominated by Leftists (i.e. Antifa and similar left-wing lunatics).
This means your proximity to left-wing cities largely determines your risk of being caught up in any kind of kinetic engagement. The closer you are to the “zombies,” the worse off you’ll be when it hits the fan.

Mass shootings in 2018 killed 68 Americans and the mass media freaked out; ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS murdered 2,000 people – MSM silent

(Natural News) It’s astonishing how at least 200 million Americans have no clue what’s really going on in this country regarding deaths caused by illegal immigrants, prescription medications, vaccines, hospital superbugs (think MRSA), chemotherapy, and hospital surgery errors. That’s because the mainstream media, a.k.a. MSM, purposely fails to report any of it.

What most people fail to realize also is that nearly every TV station and newspaper is biased news that covers up all the atrocities caused by whatever makes the corporations money or ensures more people voting for Democrats (Socialism and “free stuff”). Every year in America, illegal immigrants flood across the border, bringing with them drugs, crime, infectious diseases, and likely votes for more crooked Democrat politicians. Though some illegal aliens are innocent humans seeking a better life, many are also criminals who will rob, rape, and kill to “get theirs.”

9/11 HIJACKERS: SAUDI 'DON'T ASK, DON'T SEE' POLICY REVEALED

ith the US renewing its controversial “alliance” with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, with oil production in the Kingdom under siege, and talk of war against Iran ramping up, the thorny issue of the Saudi role in the 9/11 terrorist attacks remains uncomfortably in the background.

For 18 years now, investigative journalists have faced daunting obstacles in seeking answers about the 9/11 attacks. Of the 19 hijackers, 15 were Saudi citizens. Perhaps the greatest hurdle comes when asking about connections between the hijackers and high-ranking Saudi Arabian officials.

Redactions, delays, denials, misdirection, and conflicting statements show a pattern — all of it in one direction and, intentionally or not, to the benefit of the Kingdom.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is also interesting to note, that Prince Bandar bin Sultan. died in July of this year; of course, there were the requisite condolences from various heads of state, etc., but there is very little said, about how the man actually died.

I would tend to politely suggest, that his death was not a "family affair" where close family were quietly ushered into a clean, caring hospice environment, with all the modern "bells and whistles" existed, to usher him into the next "kingdom" with prayer. The net is rife with speculation on this, but there are is a reasonable possibility which may, in retrospect, make sense, looking at how he had positioned himself both personally, and professionally, both within the government of the House of Saud, and as one very familiar with those who ascended the very top Tier in the Bowels of Power in the US: The Bush Dynasty.

Some say that he was assassinated by the Syrians, for having attempted a regime change in Damascus. Syria eliminates Bandar bin Sultan in retaliation for Damascus bombing

The following link is also useful:

Saudi Aravbia Intelligence Headquarters and Saudi Deputy Intelligence Killed as Payback.

However it happened, the death last July renders him "conveniently incapable" of testifying or adding anything more to the class action suit, brought against him by families of 9/11 victims.

It also leaves behind toxic pollution from burn pits and weapons such as depleted uranium (DU). The use of DU violates international law, including the Biological Weapons Convention. As described in David Swanson’s article about a new study, which documents the horrific impact of DU on newborns in Iraq,

“…every round of DU ammunition leaves a residue of DU dust on everything it hits, contaminating the surrounding area with toxic waste that has a half-life of 4.5 billion years, the age of our solar system, and turns every battlefield and firing range into a toxic waste site that poisons everyone in such areas.”

The Military Officials Who Knew Saudi Arabia Would Fail

While it’s seems axiomatic that most Americans suffer from historical amnesia, that’s not necessarily true for the U.S. military. And as America and Iran were sprinting towards a military confrontation last week, a recently retired senior U.S. military officer expounded on what he called “the bumbling, incompetent and feckless stupidity of it all.”

The target of the officer’s ire was not Donald Trump (whom he admires) or Mike Pompeo (who he doesn’t), but Saudi Arabia’s March 2015 decision to go to war against the Iranian-allied Houthi tribal movement in Yemen —“which is,” he argues, “how all of this nonsense got started in the first place.”

He explained: “We didn’t see the [Saudi] invasion [of Yemen] coming and we were shocked when it happened. But we were pretty blunt. We told them, ‘you can’t win and you’ll bankrupt your country. It’ll be a quagmire.’ And we were right.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And so, the US- backed, Saudi war on Yemen was actually called by many of our distinguished Military Vets as a truly losing proposition" but they were utterly neither respected for their views, and not listened to.

Talk about "a catastrophic failure of imagination" regarding Yemen, which lives on in the Trump administration until this very day.

Pentagon Chief Claims He Will Reduce Rising Civilian Casualties

The Pentagon reports that Defense Secretary Mark Esper is in the process of spearheading a “major new policy” focused on cutting the number of civilians the US military and US-armed allies are killing.

There are said to be concerns about the growing number of civilians killed in US drone strikes and airstrikes, as well as the number of civilians killed by other countries, particularly Saudi Arabia, with ever-growing supplies of US arms.

That said, the Pentagon is only saying changes would come “where possible,” and that a lot of the effort might end up with the Pentagon trying to “be transparent when civilian casualties do occur.”

Ultimately this suggests that there aren’t big changes coming as initially branded. Any changes would be done only where convenient, and honestly after decades of war any efforts to reduce civilian deaths have been unsuccessful, or short-lived. The priority “where possible” is almost always.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Were I a betting person, I would not bet that this will ever happen, in spite of what may possibly be this gentlemen's bets intentions.

You can't always, dominate the narrative, as was impossible during a recent Saudi strike against Yemen.

Oh, and BTW, here is a companion piece on another bombing, from commondreams.org, on another massacre, from June of this year:

Life in China Is Getting Harder, and Xi Jinping Should Worry

But the mood on the ground is less celebratory, especially in a stretch of southern China that runs from the Vietnamese border to the Pearl River Delta. The area includes the manufacturing hub of Dongguan, being reshaped by American tariffs. There’s Shenzhen -- home to Huawei Technologies Co. and just across the border from Hong Kong’s protests -- and also Nanning, which started rationing pork this month as a swine fever epidemic ravages hog stocks.

Interviews this month across these locations showed how livelihoods are getting harder and why Beijing should be concerned.

“Xi is faced with a multitude of difficult domestic and international problems,” said Dennis Wilder, former senior director for Asia on the National Security Council who’s now at Georgetown University. “Any one of these problems could become a full blown crisis and thus, while he maintains a tight hold of power, he cannot afford to celebrate too gleefully as he reviews the grand parade.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is always the people at the bottom of any dictatorship, who remember what "revolution" seemed to be about; and that... was personal, and professional freedom, coupled with a right to speak your mind, even if what you are saying, is not "politically correct."

In checking in with Google, we find the following info on the longest reigning Chinese monarchy:

"China’s longest dynastic reign came from the Zhou Dynasty, a rule the started in 1046 BC up to 256 BCE, a span of 790 years. Iron was introduced to China during the Zhou’s reign and also the period when bronze ware making in China reached its peak."

So one has to wonder; how long will President XI have to "fulfil his destiny" in China?!?

'GRIEF AND ANGER' IN YEMEN AFTER US-BACKED SAUDI BOMBING KILLS SEVEN CHILDREN, NINE OTHERS

SOURCE: COMMON DREAMS
Warning: This story contains graphic images and video.

A Saudi Arabia-led coalition attack on Yemen Tuesday killed 16 people, including seven children, the latest massacre in the years long conflict.

"These children should not be victims of this conflict," Save the Children in Yemen country director Tamer Kirolos told Middle East Eye. "Yet, they have paid the highest price imaginable. We're calling for an independent investigation into the attack and for perpetrators to be held to account."

(@MohammedHojily) September 24, 2019

The attack was took place in Dhalea province, an area controlled by Houthi rebels, China's Xinhua News Agency reported.

The Saudi-led war on Yemen—backed by the U.S. government—has raged for over four years.

According to Al Jazeera, the Houthis had hoped for a mutual drawdown in hostilities.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Hey, here's a shoutout to one of President Trump's BFFs in the Middle East, the Butcher of Yemen, AKA Prince Mohammed Bin Salman !!

GREAT job in Yemen, yesterday; wow, 7 kids killed; how many pregnant Yemeni women did your soldiers kill, BTW?!? We know you just LOVE numbers like that!

You know what the IDF says (now, covertly,) about that, regarding pregnant Palestinian women right?!? "One Shot, Two Kills!!"

Images: another savage massacre in Yemen, courtesy of US aided and abetted, by the US military

Please look at these images, even though I understand you may want to turn away from them. This is being done with your tax dollars, but more distressingly, in your names.

Look at this family, grieving inconsolably, trying to protect what is left of the children's corpses, in one video, and how gently they are putting the stones over the bodies, in an unmarked grave.

This, folks, is what this massacre will most probably achieve, with the complete signoff by both the Saudi Government, and the US government; after the Houthi attacks against two Saudi oil refineries on the 14th, the Houthis said that no more attacks of this kind will follow. but only if the Saudis stop their attacks in Yemen.

Well the Butcher of Yemen, has just responded, through this massacre, that Saudi Arabia will bomb, and continue to bomb civilians in Yemen, no matter what.

The chess pieces are starting to fall in place, if one is paying minimal attention.

Saudi Arabia has chosen not to step down on their assaults on Yemen, because of the bombing of those Saudi refinery units.

So look for another bombing of Saudi infrastructure, but this time, with massive civilian casualties, most probably carried out by the Sufis, but to be blamed on Iran.

Look for American defense infrastructure to perform moderately less badly than it did the last time, when it was a 100% failure (how, please, can that be an "accident"?).

Such a bombing would create the "red meat/bloody shirt "justification" for a massive bombing of Iran, courtesy of Saudi Arabia; Israel; and the US,even if it was not Iran which did the bombing, and they know it.

BOMB-PLOTTING EXTREMIST AMERICAN SOLDIER TRIED TO JOIN US-BACKED NEO-NAZI MILITIA IN UKRAINE

SOURCE: THEGRAYZONE.COM

A FAR-RIGHT US SOLDIER ARRESTED BY THE FBI FOR PLOTTING DOMESTIC BOMB ATTACKS SOUGHT TO JOIN UKRAINE’S NEO-NAZI AZOV BATTALION, WHICH WAS DIRECTLY ARMED AND ADVISED BY THE AMERICAN GOVERNMENT
A far-right soldier in the United States Army has been arrested by the FBI for plotting bomb attacks targeting American media outlets and Democratic politicians.

While serving in the US military, this right-wing extremist gave fascist militants in Ukraine and other countries information on how to build bombs, including what he called “cell phone IEDs in the style of the Afghans.”

The FBI said he had also planned to travel to Ukraine in order to join the Azov Battalion, a neo-Nazi militia that has for years been directly supported by the US government.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Please give me a moment to process what I am reading here.

So the FBI failed to mention that this nutbrain, had been "armed and advised by American officers in order to turn up the heat on Russia?!?!?"

So that the FBI would look "butch" when they apprehended their "Patsy" and blame
Russia for what American FBI agents, and US military officers had done?!?

What if you found yourselves unable to stop some act of mayhem this guy could have committed, out of your view??!?

Would you have blamed Russia for it, then found the guy, and "neutralized him", after the damage was done?!?

I would politely suggest that the FBI perhaps, tha the whole organisation needs take off a few months, to decide what their real mission is, which I believe, is keeping America safe" from the threats which actually exist in this country, rather than creating bogus threats, like grooming this kind of patsy, as though Russia had actually been behind this.

Eat some yogurt and, and do some pilates; take your vitamins, particularly calcium magnesium; B; an "D".

Then, would you please report to the American people why you had to make a monster out of this guy, with the US military's involvement, and try to blame it all on the alleged, and highly manufactured "Baddie of All Baddies", Russia?!?

Russia doesn't scare me; but what scares the stuffing out of me, right now, is that some collective idiots in this administration, signed off on this, to make Russia look bad and evil, when it was actually the people in the US government who were evil enough, to try try to make this happen.

24YO MAN LEAVING A MUSIC FESTIVAL KILLED BY 3 COPS WHO ALL TASERED HIM AT THE SAME TIMEPublished: September 25, 2019Share | Print ThisSOURCE: THE FREE THOUGHT PROJECT

Henry County, GA — A family is devastated and asking for answers after their 24-year-old son was tasered to death by police after leaving a Georgia music festival over the weekend. Fernando Rodriquez had harmed no one and was simply walking down the street when police approached him. Moments later, after three officers simultaneously tasered him, he would be dead.

While the exact details of what led up to the incident are unclear, according to police, they received a call Friday night around 10.00 p.m. about a man walking down the street without clothes on. The man was Rodriquez and he had just left the Imagine Music Festival at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

Police claim that when they approached Rodriquez, he would not comply with their demands so they had no other choice but to use force against him. That force came in the form three cops simultaneously tasering Rodriquez until he became unresponsive.

I hope the family creates a lawsuit, from which neither Hamilton County Police, nor the perpetrators, will ever be able to walk away.
