Donald Trump offers CIA director post to Rep. Mike Pompeo – report

This is worse than Sessions.

President-elect Donald Trump has offered the job of CIA director to Congressman Mike Pompeo (R-Kansas), according to Reuters.

Spy Chief Admits US Doesn’t Know How Wikileaks Got Hillary Emails

One more lie has been exposed as Fake news involving a Hillary Clinton lie that was supposedly fact checked and then echoed throughout the corporate media echo chamber.

It's part of a year long pattern of media lies which has resulted in corporate media news outlets losing nearly all of the public's trust.

Just a few weeks ago, Hillary and the democrats were running around blaming everything on the Russians and in the Presidential Debate she lied to the public stating the WikiLeaks emails shouldn't be trusted because they were hacked by Russia.

Oh no!: Donald Trump May Select an Architect of Bush’s Torture Program to Run CIA

Donald Trump May Select an Architect of Bush’s Torture Program to Run CIA

Donald Trump may select Jose Rodriguez, one of the primary architects of the George W. Bush torture program, to run the Central Intelligence Agency, according to a law firm with close ties to Trump.

Rodriguez, the former director of the National Clandestine Service, helped developed the CIA black sites, secret prisons operated in foreign countries where interrogators used a range of torture tactics, including the use of “waterboarding,” the simulated drowning technique once used by the Khmer Rouge and Nazi agents to glean information from detainees.

At least 136 individuals were detained and tortured by the CIA. Interrogation tactics also included forced nudity, sleep deprivation while being vertically shackled, and confinement in a small box.

US ARMY AND CIA MAY BE GUILTY OF WAR CRIMES IN AFGHANISTAN, SAYS ICC

US armed forces and the CIA may have committed war crimes by torturing detainees in Afghanistan, the international criminal court’s chief prosecutor has said in a report, raising the possibility that American citizens could be indicted even though Washington has not joined the global court. “Members of US armed forces appear to have subjected at least 61 detained persons to torture, cruel treatment, outrages upon personal dignity on the territory of Afghanistan between 1 May 2003 and 31 December 2014,” according to the report issued by prosecutor Fatou Bensouda’s office on Monday.

US ARMY AND CIA MAY BE GUILTY OF WAR CRIMES IN AFGHANISTAN, SAYS ICC

US armed forces and the CIA may have committed war crimes by torturing detainees in Afghanistan, the international criminal court’s chief prosecutor has said in a report, raising the possibility that American citizens could be indicted even though Washington has not joined the global court.

“Members of US armed forces appear to have subjected at least 61 detained persons to torture, cruel treatment, outrages upon personal dignity on the territory of Afghanistan between 1 May 2003 and 31 December 2014,” according to the report issued by prosecutor Fatou Bensouda’s office on Monday.

The report adds that CIA operatives may have subjected at least 27 detainees in Afghanistan, Poland, Romania and Lithuania to “torture, cruel treatment, outrages upon personal dignity and/or rape” between December 2002 and March 2008.

Most of the alleged abuse happened in 2003-04, the report says.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Such an indictment will have absolutely zero force in US law, because the US government is not a signatory to the ICC.

It may well, however, create a permanent, global, and historic, embarrassment to that unholy trinity of Bush, Rumsfeld, and Cheney, who somehow loved and supported the concept of torture, and consistently alleged that it produced actionable information, which it did not.

One has to wonder if they collectively experienced a "certain, very specific psychological response", to reading reports by field officials of their torturing exploits; of course, that bit we will never know.

But the reality is that torture, at the end of the day, only gets the tortured individual to say whatever the torturers have asked them to confess to, in order to get the torture to stop, period, end of discussion.

During the Second World War, a German interrogator by the name of Hanns Scharff, who only used kindness, rather than torture, as his method of extracting information, and it worked brilliantly. And as reported at knowledgenuts.com:

Scharff was the friendliest interrogator of World War II. Fluent in English, Scharff grilled pilots who were shot down over Germany. Unlike the notorious Barbie, Scharff had a much more positive approach to interrogations. This Luftwaffe officer was a master of mind games. Before he quizzed a prisoner at the Dulag Luft camp, Scharff dug up as much background information on his subjects as possible. Even if he could only find basic info, he fooled prisoners into thinking he already knew all about their objectives. Since he was already aware of their activities, they might as well talk about them, right? Next, Scharff disarmed his prisoners by becoming their best bud. He often took them on trips to the local zoo, and he even let one prisoner take a ride in a German plane. After building a rapport with a POW, Scharff would take him on walks through the Oberursel forest. Together, the Nazi and the Allied pilot would stroll through the pine trees, observing the birds and chatting about America or England. The whole time, Scharff was listening for little slip-ups that would reveal information vital to the German war machine. Prisoners might inadvertently mention something about bomb sights or causally say something about operational plans. They might tell a story about their training or talk about the planes they used to fly. Scharff was such a smooth talker, such a friendly guy, that the prisoners had no idea they were being conned. They were just glad they weren’t being electrocuted. Many of them signed his guestbook before leaving the camp. In fact, after the war, he was invited to many POW reunions because he was such a gentleman. Eventually, Scharff moved to the US where he helped the Air Force come up with survival techniques for downed pilots, and taught intelligence agencies how to peacefully interrogate suspects. The Army was so impressed with Scharff’s methods that they incorporated his methods into their curriculum, and soldiers attending interrogation school learn all about his techniques

Ultimately when the US government tortures, it gives other governments around the world carte blanche to torture American civilians and military personnel.

History will judge Bush, Cheney, and Rumsfeld very harshly in the end, both for their commodity driven war lust against Afghanistan and Iraq, and for the use of torture.

But this means that all Americans must peacefully advocate for the end of the use of torture in any interrogation situation, because it doesn't work, and there are far better means of extracting information, as demonstrated by the techniques of Hanns Scharff.

Life before the Nakba: a Personal Tale of a Life Lived, Loved, and Lost

It is undeniable that the Palestinian people – Muslims and Christians – have suffered in pursuit of a homeland. For more than sixty years they have endured the pain of dislocation. Many wait in refugee camps in the West Bank, Gaza, and neighboring lands for a life of peace and security that they have never been able to lead. They endure the daily humiliations – large and small – that come with occupation.

Neocons Trying to Sneak Into Trump Administration

It’s a cliche to say that the cushiest positions of influence in any US administration go to figures who were seen to have brought something to the table during the campaign. Yet with the election of Donald Trump, a lot of high-ranking neoconservatives are expecting the exact opposite, figuring that they can step right into positions of power and influence despite openly campaigning against Trump.

Human Rights Watch Conducted a Biased Investigation for the School “Bombing” in Idlib

By Mehmet Ersoy

On November 6, Human Rights Watch published a report in which the Syrian government and its allies were accused of carrying out an airstrike on a school in Idlib province in late October, 2016.

According to the report, on October 26, the school was hit by two Su-24 jets used by the Syrian and Russian AFs. Citing some witnesses, the organization claims the jets dropped from 7 to 9 parachute bombs on the school and nearby road. It says no military facilities were in the school or by it and all the casualties were among civilians...

BLOOD MONEY

Germany buried Anti- Fascism and celebrated an Israel weaponized by the very same factories that served Hitler, who was the decisive force behind the emigration of European Jews to Palestine. The fact that the Germans are just as responsible for the Nakba as they are for the Holocaust is something they refuse to recognize to this very day.

Balfour Declaration vs Hussein-McMahon Correspondence

 Ninety nine years ago, on November 2nd 1917, a letter came to be known as “Balfour Declaration” was sent from the British Foreign Secretary; Arthur James Balfour, to the most senior Zionist Jew in Britain; Walter Rothschild, pledging assistance to the Zionist cause of establishing a Jewish national home (a state) in Palestine disregarding the rights and the aspirations of the indigenous Christian and Muslim Palestinian inhabitants.

Lives in ruins: the human tragedy unfolding in Gaza

A 2015 UN report found that Israel struck seven sites designated as civilian shelters in the 2014 Gaza war, killing 44 Palestinians and injuring 227. No Israelis have been charged for these incidents, or any attacks, during the war.

Beit Hanoun was particularly badly hit in the 2014 conflict and 70 per cent of its housing became uninhabitable. Today, sand, rubbish and discarded clothes remain strewn across the ground but the UAE, Qatar and the Maldives have funded some reconstruction. The Kafarnah family, like many I meet, live in shoddy caravans that are bitterly cold in the winter and extremely hot in summer.

The UN provides the bare minimum of oil, milk and wheat flour every three months, while the ruling Hamas government distributes a small amount of cash every quarter.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US government continues to support and enable Israel's serial genocide against the Palestinian people, whose only crimes are continuing to breathe, and not forgetting their history before the Balfour Declaration.

And how does the US government "reward" Israel for this policy?!?

US to give record $38 billion in military aid to Israel over 10 years

And what does Israel's current Defense Minister say about the coming Israel conflict with Gaza?!?

Israeli Defense Minister says next Gaza war will be the last ‘because we will completely destroy them’ - See more at: http://mondoweiss.net/2016/10/israeli-minister-completely/#sthash.V530V1MC.dpuf

How completely comforting it is to know that the US, through its military largesse to Israel, will be aiding and abetting its coming complete genocide of the Palestinian people!!!

And some Americans cannot understand why countries in the Middle East "...don't trust the US government"?!?

I have one word for those people: that word is GAZA.

NYT ADMITS KEY AL QAEDA ROLE IN ALEPPO

As much as The New York Times and the mainstream U.S. media have become propaganda outlets on most foreign policy issues, like the one-sided coverage of the bloody Syrian war, sometimes the truth seeps through in on-the-ground reporting by correspondents, even ones who usually are pushing the “propo.” Such was the case with Anne Barnard’s new reporting from inside west Aleppo, the major portion of the city which is in government hands and copes with regular terror rocket and mortar attacks from rebel-held east Aleppo where Al Qaeda militants and U.S.-armed-and-funded “moderate” rebels fight side-by-side.

CIVIL WAR II – FOURTH TURNING INTENSIFYING (PART I)

As we enter the final stretch of this vitriolic, deplorable, venomous, propaganda saturated, deceitful, rigged presidential election spectacle, it becomes painfully obvious this Fourth Turning is careening toward bloodshed, bedlam, confrontation, and civil war. The linear fixated establishment, who fancy themselves intellectually superior to the irredemables, are too blinded by their sociopathic, increasingly audacious subversion of the Constitution, to grasp the level of rage and disillusionment of a white working class that has been screwed over for decades.

US Troops Could Be Prosecuted For Yemen War Crimes: Lawmaker

A US congressman has warned that American troops could be prosecuted for providing military support to the Saudi war on Yemen.

US hypocrisy: Bombing of Aleppo is no worse than what happened in Gaza and Iraq

US CONDEMNATION OF YEMEN SLAUGHTER BACKFIRES AS WORLD BLAMES US

Once called the world’s greatest purveyor of violence by Reverend Martin Luther King Jr., the US government has made a habit of issuing vapid self-serving and hypocritical statements about humanitarian crises all over the world.

In some cases, a flack standing behind a government podium will give a boilerplate condemnation of the violence and horrors, while in many cases a simple press release will do.

So it was the normal routine on Tuesday, when UN Ambassador Samantha Power issued another typical empty condemnation of the humanitarian crisis in Yemen, where thousands have been killed and thousands more are starving to death. But the bullshit did not stand long.

Activists immediately pointed out it was the government for which Power was speaking that was leading the slaughter, providing the very weapons the Saudis were using to bomb civilians and damage the food supply.

Despicable Balfour: A Story of Betrayal - Part 1

November 2 marks the centenary of the Balfour Declaration of 1917, which began the still-ongoing colonisation of Palestine and sowed the seeds of an endless nightmare for the Palestinian people, both those who were forced to flee at gunpoint and those who have managed to remain in the shredded remains of their homeland under Israel's brutal military occupation.

“Stop watching RT and other Russian-biased sources.” A Tale of Two Cities

Listening to CNN and NPR (National PR), no one would ever guess that it’s the same struggle in each city, a struggle to liberate innocent civilians from the headchoppers of ISIS. But in Mosul, NPR acknowledges that the innocent civilians are forced to stay and serve as human shields for ISIS.

Your retired Latin prof translator/commentator keeps up with the help of Facebook friends in 35 countries. Comparing the international posts and comments with the American ones points out the irony. One of them, in Romania, has been advised to “Stop watching RT and other Russian-biased sources.”

But in Romania, there is no access to Fox, CNN, or even to NPR. So what is the poor Rumanian to do? And in another bingo for Godwin’s law, the one advising against trusting RT calls Trump “another Hitler.”

Citigroup bank chose Obama’s 2008 cabinet – WikiLeaks

The single biggest beneficiary was Citigroup, which was given $45 billion in cash in the form of a government stock purchase, plus a $306 billion government guarantee to back up its worthless mortgage-related assets.

One month before the presidential election of 2008, the giant Wall Street bank Citigroup submitted to the Obama campaign a list of its preferred candidates for cabinet positions in an Obama administration. This list corresponds almost exactly to the eventual composition of Barack Obama’s cabinet.

The memorandum, revealed by WikiLeaks in a recent document release from the email account of John Podesta, who currently serves as Hillary Clinton’s campaign chair, was written by Michael Froman, who was then an executive with Citigroup and currently serves as US trade representative. The email is dated Oct. 6, 2008 and bears the subject line “Lists.” It went to Podesta a month before he was named chairman of President-Elect Obama’s transition team.

Inside the Invisible Government: War, Propaganda, Clinton & Trump by JOHN PILGER

This article is about the culpability and criminality as in War Crimes of the US MSM. Pilgers' take on why the establishment hates Donald Trump too!

In 1946, the Nuremberg Tribunal prosecutor said of the German media: “Before every major aggression, they initiated a press campaign calculated to weaken their victims and to prepare the German people psychologically for the attack. In the propaganda system, it was the daily press and the radio that were the most important weapons.”

Terrorists in Syria received U.S.-made anti-aircraft systems and launched Grad missiles on Aleppo

Putin has really messed up here.He has repeatedly given the terrorists breaks(ceasefires and truces) to resupply,rearm and replace their personnel losses. His Generals publicly asked him for permission to resume bombing. That is unheard of.Putin has made significant errors in the prosecution of this war and he is in trouble with his military leadership.

(RT) ~ Militant groups in Syria were supplied with US-made man-portable surface-to-air missiles, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said, adding that the West’s actions in Syria look like an attempt to render assistance to terrorists.
The Russian Foreign Ministry, she said during a news briefing, is aware of “militants [in Syria] receiving US-manufactured man-portable air-defense systems,” adding that “Jihadists operating in the Aleppo region continue to be supplied with arms and ammunition.”

As trial ends, surreal scene leaves defense lawyer stunned with Taser, tackled by U.S. Marshals

The feds thought they were going to convict and they didn't have their detainers filed yet for Nevada. Bundy should have been released. Instead the US Marshals Service jumps the defense attornet arguing for release and taze and beat him!

Moments after the Oregon standoff defendants' acquittals were announced in court Thursday, Ammon Bundy's lawyer Marcus Mumford stood before the judge, and argued that his client should be released from custody immediately and allowed to walk out of the courtroom a free man.

"If they want him, they know where to find him,'' Mumford told the judge. "I don't see any paper proving their authority to hold him.''

Suddenly, a group of about six to seven U.S. Marshals, who had been either standing or seated around the perimeter of the courtroom, slowly moved in and surrounded Mumford at his defense table. The judge directed them to move back but moments later, the marshals grabbed onto him.

Cops vs. The Cowboys

Looks like the Cowboys have won round one. At the beginning of the trial FBI misconduct came out.

The guy in charge of the firearms and ammo was a fed, on and on ad nauseum.
At the very end there was a retired BLM guy on the jury who was hanging up the jury and the jurors and judge got rid of him and that is what led to the acquittal.
The prosecution was timed for a conviction a couple of weeks before the election with the aim to hurt Trumps support nationwide.
Didn't work.The jury nullified the governments' crime under color of law.
A lot of politicians in Oregon are worried,especially the Governor who ordered the Oregon State Police to kill LaVoy Finicum.

Bundy Brothers Acquitted in Takeover of Oregon Wildlife Refuge

The people have just sent a message.They have had it!

PORTLAND, Ore. — Armed antigovernment protesters led by Ammon and Ryan Bundy were acquitted Thursday of federal conspiracy and weapons charges stemming from the takeover of a federally owned wildlife sanctuary in Oregon last winter.

The surprise acquittals of all seven defendants in Federal District Court was a blow to government prosecutors, who had argued that the Bundys and five of their followers used force and threats of violence to occupy the reserve. But the jury appeared swayed by the defendants’ contention that they were protesting government overreach and posed no threat to the public.

In Israeli prisons, Palestinians who say they've been tortured are denied doctor visits

S. was arrested in the West Bank in early 2014 on suspicion of involvement in security crimes. After his arrest he was interrogated by the Shin Bet security service, and has said that he was tortured.

Afterward, he was transferred from the Shin Bet facility to the Megiddo Prison. He filed a complaint, through his lawyer, with the Justice Ministry’s ombudsman.

S. found himself with a problem, though. It was his word against the Shin Bet. As is the case with most prisoners who have undergone “necessary interrogation” by the Shin Bet, where nonconventional methods - in practice, a form of torture - is used, such sessions are not recorded.

His lawyer asked the Prisons Service to have a doctor and psychologist examine his client, hoping such a medical report could provide enough evidence of torture to back up the complaint, were it ever to reach the state of disciplinary examination.

Bundy Prosecutors Admit That Undercover Informants Outnumbered Defendants In Recent Trial

There were more informants than defendants. This was a staged production.The Bundy's and their friends were the marks for this con game.

For the past six weeks Oregonians have been treated to a political trial of the “Malheur 7” (Ammon Bundy, Ryan Bundy, Shawna Cox, Jeff Banta, David Fry, Neal Wampler and Ken Medenbach,). I was privileged to have a ringside seat at the trial as a volunteer researcher and paralegal for Ryan Bundy (who represents himself) at the trial.

The trial has revealed an astounding brave new world of modern surveillance and surreptitious “law enforcement”.

And there were undercover government informants. Everywhere. Suspicions that the government’s narrative was largely erected with undercover agents were borne out during the first week of trial. It was revealed by an Oregon State trooper that one of Ammon Bundy’s “bodyguards”—a man who drove him to his arrest—was an undercover informant.

Elite’s War on Free Speech, Free Press, Free Internet and the Truth

By Joachim Hagopian
October 22, 2016
“A populace deprived of the ability to separate lies from truth, is no longer capable of sustaining a free society.”

Journalist Chris Hedges

As the ruling elite pushes its rigged election, forcibly cramming crime boss Hillary down our gullets against the people’s choice or will, so goes suppression of information rapidly shutting off the truth spigot, leaving Americans high and dry, starved of honesty by their oligarchic owned and controlled crime cabal government. Signs that the globalists are panicking are visible every day as they aggressively provoke World War III timed with the collapse of their morally and financially bankrupted global economy. And with two-thirds of Americans living from paycheck to paycheck, the future does not look bright.

FLASHBACK: The Mystery of ISIS’ Toyota Army Solved

The US Treasury has recently opened an inquiry about the so-called “Islamic State’s” (ISIS/ISIL) use of large numbers of brand-new Toyota trucks. The issue has arisen in the wake of Russia’s air operations over Syria and growing global suspicion that the US itself has played a key role in arming, funding, and intentionally perpetuating the terrorist army across Syria and Iraq.

Not surprisingly, it appears the US Treasury is asking the wrong party. Instead of Toyota, the US Treasury’s inquiry should have started next door at the US State Department.

Mystery Solved.....

The Ruling Elite Has Lost the Consent of the Governed

Brimming with hubris and self-importance, the ruling Elite and mainstream media cannot believe they have lost the consent of the governed.
Every ruling Elite needs the consent of the governed: even autocracies, dictatorships and corporatocracies ultimately rule with the consent, however grudging, of the governed.
The American ruling Elite has lost the consent of the governed. This reality is being masked by the mainstream media, mouthpiece of the ruling class, which is ceaselessly promoting two false narratives:

Russia insists two Belgium warplanes flying from an Air Force base in Jordan attacked a village in Syria, citing radar data. Belgium denies conducting any airstrikes.

Brussels’ continued denial of the jets movements in the area is Belgian Defense Minister Steven Vandeput “deliberately deceiving people in Belgium and elsewhere in the world, or his subordinates and the Americans are lying to the leadership of Belgium,” Russian Defense Ministry spokesman General Igor Konashenkov said.

Nauru, Refugees and Australia’s “Torture Complex”

Two items of interest have tickled the airwaves and triggered some commentary over the last few days. The first was an ABC Four Corners program covering the fate of refugees in the detention facility on Nauru, known euphemistically as a “processing centre” costing $35.3 million a year to the Australian tax payer.

The Four Corners program was, in turn, informed by a significant Amnesty International report, aptly titled Island of Despair, which was released on Monday night.[1] That report examined the rather ghoulish extent the Australian government, with its Nauru satraps, has been going about the business of “processing” boat arrivals.

In the sobering words of the report, Australia’s government had furthered “a policy to deter people arriving by boat” calculated to inflict “intolerable cruelty and the destruction of the physical and mental integrity of hundreds of children, men and children,” an approach “chosen as a tool of government policy.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

OK, as a native Californian, I get why illegal immigration is such an horrific problem, on so many levels.

So, Prime Minister Turnbull, repatriate the parents: fine.

But what about the children, who really didn't make the choice to come on such a perilous journey; what about them, sir?!?

Can the country of Australia not partner with some universal adoption agencies which could treat these kids kindly and humanely, and give them a shot at getting adopted by loving families which provide them with the kind of love and structure necessary for leading productive lives?!?

And why this compassionate alternative is not at all being considered by the Australian Parliament just baffles me.

I've been to Sidney when Mike worked there for a couple of projects; the people I met were kind-hearted, bright, and very outspoken.

I cannot believe that Sidneysiders, and the rest of Australia, would have a hard time with such an approach for these kids.

Weekend Events Confirm War between US and Russia Could Be Sooner than Later

Right now the US mainstream media is obsessing over Donald’s alleged womanizing and female groping soap opera as the Clinton’s/MSM’s pruriently entertaining smokescreen, neatly designed to cover up Hillary/Bill’s serial raping and her criminal lead role as enabler/strong armed intimidator of past victims. Meanwhile, barely noticed in a virtual media blackout in the West are at least a half-dozen high alert, significant international developments this last weekend that all strongly indicate the extreme danger of a nuclear war breaking out at any time against Russia and its Eastern alliance.

President Obama Threatens President Putin With Nuclear War

In other words: what Biden is saying, is that, if Trump wins this election, then there is going to be some sudden, unannounced, U.S. government response against Putin, and that only after it is over, will the U.S. government explain to the public why it did.

This is clearly a threat that’s meant to deter Putin from doing something that Putin hasn’t yet done. Obama is telling Putin that either the winner will be the person he wants to be his successor, or else — or else what?

Whatever Biden’s assignment here actually was from Obama, one thing about it is clear: this President is determined that Hillary Clinton be his successor, and Obama will target anyone who gets in his way if he doesn’t win his way on this. And Obama wants the American public to know that this is how he feels about the matter.

US Lights Fuse in Syria to World War III Countdown

By Joachim Hagopian
October 15, 2016
At this 11th hour 59th minute while we’re still alive, we must do everything in our collective power as peace-loving citizens of the world to stop the madness bent on destroying life on planet earth. An unbroken stream of treasonous Washington neocons from the seamless Bush-Clinton-Obama ad nauseam regime is recklessly pushing humanity off the doomsday cliff. The DC despots have already lit the now burning fuse countdown to World War III against the Russian-Chinese-Iranian Eastern alliance. If we passively wait any longer, millions will soon be dying and our planet may lay in apocalyptic ruin.

HOW A FACIAL RECOGNITION MISMATCH CAN RUIN YOUR LIFE

It was just after sundown when a man knocked on Steve Talley’s door in south Denver. The man claimed to have hit Talley’s silver Jeep Cherokee and asked him to assess the damage. So Talley, wearing boxers and a tank top, went outside to take a look.

Seconds later, he was knocked to the pavement outside his house. Flash bang grenades detonated, temporarily blinding and deafening him. Three men dressed in black jackets, goggles, and helmets repeatedly hit him with batons and the butts of their guns. He remembers one of the men telling him, “So you like to fuck with my brothers in blue!” while another stood on his face and cracked two of his teeth. “You’ve got the wrong guy,” he remembers shouting. “You guys are crazy.”

Talley was driven to a Denver detention center, where he was booked for two bank robberies — the first on May 14 and the second on September 5, 2014, 10 days before his arrest — and for assaulting an officer during the second robbery.f

Seymour Hersh Says Hillary Approved Sending Libya’s Sarin to Syrian Rebels

Hersh’s journalism is among the best (after all: he went so far as to say, of Christopher Stephens, regarding Hillary Clinton, «there’s no way somebody in that sensitive of a position is not talking to the boss, by some channel»), but it’s certainly not good enough. However, it’s too good to be published any longer in places like the New Yorker. And the reporting by Christof Lehmann was better, and it was issued even earlier than Hersh’s; and it is good enough, because it named names, and it explained motivations, in an honest and forthright way, which is why Lehmann’s piece was published only on a Montenegrin site, and only online, not in a Western print medium, such as the New Yorker. The sites that are owned by members of the Western aristocracy don’t issue reports like that – journalism that’s good enough.

Bill Clinton the Rapist? What About Bill Clinton the War Criminal?

Clinton followed in the footsteps of his predecessor—George H. W. Bush, responsible for the first invasion of Iraq—by keeping brutal medieval sanctions on that country in place. All told, over three million Iraqis died as a result of sanctions that spanned three US administrations. The genocidal sanctions directly violated the 1989 Convention on the Rights of the Child, the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide, the Fourth Geneva Convention of 1949, and its Additional Protocol 1 of 1977. The establishment propaganda media intentionally hides the war crimes of the global elite and their political assets, knowing full well the public is far more interested in tawdry sex scandals and other necessary distractions.

Pence Must Go…NOW

Pence betrayed Trump and stabbed him in the back by endorsing Rat Ryan and thereby the Rat's position on OPEN BORDERS and IMMIGRATION which are the OPPOSITE of Trump's.
The second INEXCUSABLE betrayal by Pence occurred in the debate when he completely contradicted Trump's position on seeking peace in the Mideast and working WITH Putin and Russia to accomplish it. Pence, instead, sounding like a think tank neocon hack, attacked Vladimir Putin and Russia's heroic and morally-correct role against (US CREATED and FINANCED ISIS) terrorism in Syria and Iraq.

And now, when the Clinton Crime Syndicate probably paid someone a fortune for an ancient 2005 dumb 'guy-talk' BS conversation that ANY normal male has heard for his entire adult life, Pence betrays Trump a third time and spews 'holier than thou' bullshit about how 'offended' he is and how his family is going to 'pray' for Trump.

The Western sponsors of the covert war in Syria stand to incur a huge strategic defeat. It should be also noted that 66-year-old Jean-Marc Ayrault was previously French prime minister back in 2012, at the very time that France was beginning to covertly supply weapons to illegally armed groups in Syria – in contravention of a European Union embargo.

Theresa May trying to protect soldiers who murder prisoners and torture civilians, says top human rights lawyer

Theresa May has been accused of wanting to cover up war crimes committed by British soldiers by a world-leading human rights lawyer.

In her speech to the Conservative party conference, the Prime Minister pledged to rapturous applause that “we will never again in any future conflict let those activist left-wing human rights lawyers harangue and harass the bravest of the brave, the men and women of our Armed Forces”.

Under Government proposals, British soldiers would be exempt from action under European Court of Human Rights law. However, they would still be subject to International Humanitarian law, including the Geneva conventions and UK criminal law.

Geoffrey Robertson QC, a former United Nations’ appeals judge, wrote in an email to The Independent that Ms May’s rhetoric was becoming "increasingly ignorant".

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Prime Minister May is going down a really morally slippery slope with these proposals: I wish she would reconsider.

But what this telegraphs to me, almost in red letters, is that the UK is considering some more military adventurism in the near future which may involve torture, and and the murder of civilians by UK military troops.

Last month, the U.S. House of Representatives, following the lead of the Senate, passed a bill allowing Americans to sue Saudi Arabia over 9/11. When the bill made it to the President’s desk, however, Obama quickly showed his loyalty to Saudi Arabia and vetoed it. However, that was only the beginning of the rollercoaster.

Days after his despicable veto, the Senate stepped up and overwhelmingly voted to override it.

Survivors of CIA torture describe homebrew electric chair used at Afghan black site

Lufti al-Arabi, a Tunisian man who was arrested in Pakistan while studying at university, spent 13 years in the CIA's notorious "Salt Pit" prison (AKA "Detention Site COBALT") in Afghanistan, enduring incredible, crippling torture, before finally being released without charge, comment, or compensation in 2015; in his first interview since his release, he tells Human Rights Watch about the inhumane tortures of the Salt Pit, including some tortures that were apparently omitted from the CIA's suppressed torture report to the US Senate.

Among these tortures is a homemade "electric chair" with wires and clips that were attached to his fingers and a wired-up helmet that was placed on his head. Al-Arabi's account is corroborated by Ridha al-Najjar, another Tunisian national who was also held for 13 years before being released without charge.

Barbarism in Words and Deeds. Barbarism of U.S. Imperial Wars is Unmatched

Over the past decade and a half, the US and its allies have invaded, occupied, killed, wounded and dispossessed over ten million people, in countries from Afghanistan, Iraq, Somalia, Libya, Syria, Yemen and Lebanon. Military and civilian officials have systematically destroyed entire economies, fostered ethno-religious wars, undermined ancient community and family ties and placed corrupt political puppets in power.

Promoted by the US, torture, arbitrary arrest and incarceration have become the norm creating lawless and chaotic societies, which had once been productive and stable. The shredding of social structures has provokes massive population flight, with millions of desperate refugees fleeing invasions, wars and total society breakdown. The result of these deliberate imperial policy decisions has been emptied cities and neighborhoods, broken families, destroyed lives and futures for many millions of young Arabs and Muslims.

Scott Adams: The Wall Around ISIS

The future of the ISIS Caliphate has been clear (to me) since at least 2003 when I wrote my sequel to God’s Debris, titled The Religion War. In the book, I predicted the rise of a Caliphate in that general area, endless “small” terrorist attacks in the United States, and the eventual walling-in of the Caliphate to stop the “idea” of ISIS from spreading.

Here’s how you kill an idea:

What you did in Iraq & Libya is the real barbarism – Russian FM spox rebukes US envoy to UN

The US envoy to the UN, who recently called Russia's actions in Syria “barbarism,” is hypocritical, because nothing in modern history is more barbaric than what the US has done in Iraq and Libya, the Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson said in a fiery rebuke.

The American envoy to the UN, Samantha Power, blasted Russia on Sunday at a Security Council meeting, accusing Moscow of civilian deaths in Aleppo in the wake of the collapse of the ceasefire negotiated by the US and Russia.

Scholar: US, UK Supporting War Crimes in the Middle East

Stephen Zunes, a California-based international relations scholar, states that London and Washington demonstrate a double standard approach to war crimes.

Saudi Arabia has been bombing Yemen since 2015. The war has already left 10,000 people dead and over a million malnourished children, according to the UN. The UK is one of the major weapon providers for the Saudis. It approved over £3 billion in arms sales to reinstate former Yemeni president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, a Saudi ally.

Saudi-led coalition blamed for attack that killed 19 in Yemen hospital

A CHARITY whose hospital in Yemen was bombed killing 19 people has blamed the Saudi-led coalition for the attack.

The finding will add further pressure on Britain to stop supporting the Saudi campaign amid widespread accusations the coalition has breached international humanitarian law.

Medicins Sans Frontieres (MSF) said the attack on the Abs Hospital last month was "unjustified and unprovoked" and has forced it to pull out of six more hospitals in northern Yemen, depriving many thousands of people from life-saving care.

An Obsolescent Military: Bombing Everything, Gaining Nothing

The wars in the Mid-East illustrate the principle nicely. Iraq didn’t work. Libya didn’t work. Iran didn’t back down. ISIS and related curiosities? The Pentagon is again bombing an enemy that can’t fight back — its specialty — but that it seems unable to defeat. The wrong military, wrong enemy, wrong war, wrong world.

UK accused of blocking UN inquiry into alleged Yemen war atrocities of Saudi allies

Britain has been accused of blocking the UN inquiry into atrocities in Yemen allegedly carried out by its theocratic ally Saudi Arabia.

In an open letter to the UN Human Rights Council (HRC), a group of NGOs has alleged that the UK is blocking the progress of the inquiry by failing to give backing to an effort by the Netherlands to set up a full investigation.

Since the conflict began the UK has sold more than £3 billion (US$3.9 billion) in arms to the Saudi regime and provided training on targeting both by warplanes and artillery.

An Obsolescent Military: Bombing Everything, Gaining Nothing

What, precisely, is the US military for, and what, precisely, can it do? In practical terms, how powerful is it? On paper, it is formidable, huge, with carrier battle groups, advanced technology, remarkable submarines, satellites, and so on. What does this translate to?

The American military is an upgraded World War II military, designed to fight other militaries like itself in a world like that which existed during World War II. The Soviet Union was that kind of military. Today there are no such militaries for America to fight. We are not in the same world. Washington seems not to have noticed.

Muslims Are the VICTIMS of “Between 82 and 97% of Terrorism-Related Fatalities”: US Government

Lest we forget. And Thanks to Alternative media and Vladimir Putin most of the world now knows who is behind the medieval Jihadis.

The Little-Known Secret to Destroying ISIS Propaganda

ISIS and Al Qaeda terrorist attacks on Westerners is evil.

And as a white American from a Judeo-Christian background, I am repulsed by the fact that ISIS is targeting Christians in Syria and Iraq with brutal murder … including crucifixion. [And these crimes are invariably not reported by the Western media.]

But most victims of ISIS, Al Qaeda and other Islamic terrorism are themselves Muslim.

Flashback: Saudi Arabia appears to be using U.S.-supplied white phosphorus in its war in Yemen

Saudi Arabia appears to be using U.S.-supplied white phosphorus munitions in its war in Yemen, based on images and videos posted to social media, raising concerns among human rights groups that the highly incendiary material could be used against civilians.

Under U.S. regulations, white phosphorus sold to other countries is to be used only for signaling to other troops and creating smoke screens. When the munition explodes, it releases white phosphorus that automatically ignites in the air and creates a thick white smoke. When used against soldiers or civilians, it can maim and kill by burning to the bone.

It is unclear exactly how the Saudis are using the munitions, but the government has already received widespread condemnation for its indiscriminate bombing in civilian areas since its campaign against rebel forces in Yemen began in 2015.

Did the Pentagon Bomb Syrian Army to Kill Ceasefire Deal?

The US has officially taken responsibility for the incident which it called a “mistake”...

A rift between the Pentagon and the White House turned into open rebellion on Saturday when two US F-16s and two A-10 warplanes bombed Syrian Arab Army (SAA) positions at Deir al-Zor killing at least 62 Syrian regulars and wounding 100 others.

Many analysts now wonder whether the attacks are an indication that the neocon-strewn DOD is actively engaged in sabotaging President Obama’s Syria policy, a claim that implies that the Pentagon is led by anti-democratic rebels who reject the Constitutional authority of the civilian leadership. Saturday’s bloodletting strongly suggests that a mutiny is brewing at the War Department.
