America’s Putin Derangement Syndrome

Last week as Donald Trump was preparing to take office, The New York Times — reeling from Trump’s interview in which he said he didn’t “really care” if the European Union holds together and described NATO as “obsolete” — declared that “the big winner” of the change in U.S. presidents was Vladimir Putin.

Open a new investigation into the events of 911 and incorporate the forensic evidence offered by ae911truth.org.

This petition being accepted by the Trump administration is a necessary component to draining the swamp and establishing an honest and ethical government and press. The people who are responsible for the events of 911 did not perish in the plane crashes. Quite the contrary, they are still alive and many of them occupy positions of extreme power and influence right here in the US. Their collective power and ability to influence the main stream media (aka fake news) has created a situation whereby only the official 911 narrative is presented in the msm although many inconsistencies and omissions of truth and fact exist. There are many independent investigators that have spent countless hours researching this subject and it is time that they are heard. Please join us in this petition.

Don’t Start A Trade War With China

Mock-up of planned Russian-Chinese airliner to compete with Boeing and Airbus. To enter service by 2025. Ambitious? Oh yes. Remember when we laughed at Toyota, Airbus, and Trump?

Is Washington really going to start a trade war with China, or is it just huffing and puffing for the position? I don’t know. Mr. Trump has inexplicably failed to brief me. A point worth bearing in mind:

Israel Political Crisis Mounts Over Netanyahu Corruption Revelations

Leaked video tapes have revealed the pervasive and corrupt relations between Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu, his family, the media, and billionaire bosses at home and abroad. The tapes are the subject of police investigations.

Notorious for his hobnobbing with the financial elite, it is now clear that “gifts” Netanyahu received from his wealthy friends were down payments for favours.

Spicer Spars With Media Over 'Always Negative' Reporting

White House press secretary Sean Spicer held his first regularly scheduled press briefing, two days after he entered the room, read an angry statement disputing media reports about crowds size at the inauguration, and left without taking questions.

Spicer answered a wide range of questions, from the administration’s plans regarding Obamacare to fighting Islamic State (IS, formerly known as ISIS/ISIL) to no longer participating in the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade agreement.

1st US Drone Strikes On Trump’s Watch Hit Al-Qaeda In Yemen & ISIS

US drones have killed five Al-Qaeda operatives in central Yemen, the first such operation after Donald Trump was inaugurated as president. The US-led coalition against Islamic State continued bombing in Syria and Iraq as well.

The “targeted drone strikes” took place in the town of Bayda, in the eponymous governorate in south-central Yemen, according to US Navy Captain Jeff Davis, spokesman for the Pentagon.

Condoning, applauding or giggling over the idea of punching people in the head whose political positions, however abhorrent, we don’t agree with is so wrong I am not even sure why it is necessary to talk about it. However, given the events of this weekend, it seems we have to talk about it.

President Trump Sued Because His Hotels Take Money When Foreign Guests Stay There

Raise your hand if you’re surprised that someone has already found a way to sue President Trump.

Anybody? Hello? (taps microphone) Is this thing on?

Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) is the group behind the legal action.

They’re filing a suit alleging that the president is violating a constitutional ban on accepting payments from foreign governments.

What? He’s taking bribes?

No.

A group of "prominent scholars" has taken umbrage that a hotelier and real estate mogul has foreign guests staying at his hotels and leasing apartments and offices in buildings he owns.

Now, maybe it's just me thinking this, but wouldn't it look worse if he gave free rooms or office space to people with ties to foreign governments?

Secret Service Will Investigate Madonna’s Latest Desperate Attempt to be Relevant

Madonna is so desperate to remain relevant that she publicly discussed her “thoughts” about blowing up the White House. It seems that she has to go to greater lengths all the time to remain in the public eye.

The aging attention whore pop star put herself back in the headlines with her comments at the Women’s March in Washington DC. Between a diatribe full of f-bombs, a suggestion that Trump “suck a d***,” and a very poorly rendered song, she said:

“I’m angry. Yes, I’m outraged. Yes, I have thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House,” Madonna said. “But I know that this won’t change anything. We cannot fall into despair.” (source)

She probably isn’t going to do it. After all, she never followed through on her last public promise either. You know, the one in which she offered to fellate everyone in New York City who voted for Hillary Clinton.

How To Rein In Fractional-Reserve Banking

The so-called multiplier arises as a result of the fact that banks are legally permitted to use money that is placed in demand deposits. Banks treat this type of money as if it was loaned to them, thus loaning it out while simultaneously allowing depositors to spend that money.

For example, if John places $100 in demand deposit at Bank One he doesn’t relinquish his claim over the deposited $100. He has an unlimited claim against his $100.

Donald Trump's War With The Media Has Begun And We've Seen Nothing Yet

Less than 24 hours being sworn in, Donald Trump declared the first war of his presidency — on the media.

Going to the CIA’s headquarters on Saturday morning, Trump immediately brought up the “dishonest media,” transitioned into praise for the agency that he said was going to destroy ISIS, and then resumed trashing the press: first for saying he didn’t get along with America’s spies (he called “Nazis” last week), and then for the inaugural coverage.

Israel Could Attempt To Kill Trump If He Doesn't Fall In Line: Analyst

Israelis could attempt to assassinate US President Donald Trump like they orchestrated the murder of former President John F. Kennedy, who opposed Tel Aviv’s nuclear weapons program, says Mark Glenn, an American author and political analyst.

Glenn told Press TV on Monday that the Zionist-controlled mainstream media’s relentless attacks against Trump are meant to make him fall in line with Israel’s policy on the Middle East, and if the US president would not toe the Israeli line he might be taken out.

Reporters tell me the truth off the record: the fake news business

“Investigative reporting has been dying. There’s no money for it. If I work on a piece for three months, while my paper is paying me, suppose at the end I come up dry? It happens. I can’t make my case. I’ve got nothing to show for it, and my paper is out whatever they’ve been paying me. They don’t like that. The other thing is, investigative work makes my bosses nervous. They don’t know where it’ll lead. Worst case, I might come up with something that’ll put the paper in a bad light. It’s like an intelligence agent in the field who wanders off the reservation. He’s got an assignment, but he sees something better, more important, and that’s where he goes. He ends up finding out something about his own agency. Something bad. I’ve seen that happen. A reporter finds out his own paper has been covering up a heavy scandal. It’s an intrinsic part of the story. What’s he going to do now? Go to his editor and tell him what’s going on? Chances are, his editor already knows.

The tongue-in-cheek offer was posted on the Sparta Police Department’s Facebook page after “an investigation” led to the discovery of fake meth among batches of the drug sold to unsuspecting users.

From the Forbes article: In a statement from the U.S. Department of Justice and Federal Trade Commission on Thursday, authorities describe insufficient or poorly enforced policies that resulted in the funneling of hundreds of millions of dollars in proceeds from illegal gambling, fraud and drug and human trafficking.

Lessons From The 1937 Little Steel Strike In The US

Given its size, violence, and political importance, it might seem strange that the Little Steel Strike of 1937 is so forgotten.

In the midst of the Great Depression, 80,000 steelworkers went out on strike in a swath of industrial America stretching from Chicago to central Pennsylvania, defying some of the world’s most viciously antiunion corporations in a bitter fight for recognition of their right to organize in the Steel Workers Organizing Committee (SWOC), one of the divisions of the new Committee for Industrial Organization (CIO—later Congress of Industrial Organizations).

The chemist, Annie Dookhan, may have played a role in more than 20,000 drug cases during her eight and a half years at a state lab, but to date prosecutors have resisted mounting a wholesale revisiting of the convictions that resulted at least in part from Dookhan’s work.

SETBACK FOR NEOLIBERALISM: TRUMP DUMPS TPP, WILL RENEGOTIATE NAFTA

President Donald Trump reportedly signed executive orders that will remove the United States from the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and start a renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). It increases the possibility that the Trump administration will deliver a fatal blow to neoliberal globalization. That such actions came from a Republican president is remarkable given the party’s recent history of support for neoliberalism, though the popularity of “free trade” has considerably diminished among the electorate. Both major party candidates in the 2016 cycle-former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Trump-campaigned in opposition to TPP.

On January 23, 2017 President Donald Trump made clear that the United States is no longer pursuing the horrific trade pact known as the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP).

President Trump's Great 2A Cop Page: "Our job is not to make life more comfortable for the rioter & looter. Supporting law enforcement means supporting our citizens' ability to protect themselves"

If you haven't had a chance to check out President Trump's new White House website, I highly suggest you do so. It's great and says things that we would probably never believe would be posted there. He begins "The dangerous anti-police atmosphere in America is wrong. The Trump Administration will end it." Trump then points out that more guns make society safer, not less safe. This sound like the first sane, honest President in my lifetime! Once again, as opposed to mere police adulation, he supports the people and their right to bear arms! "Supporting law enforcement means supporting our citizens' ability to protect themselves. We will uphold Americans' Second Amendment rights at every level of our judicial system. President Trump is committed to building a border wall to stop illegal immigration, to stop the gangs and the violence, and to stop the drugs from pouring into our communities."

Trump’s Inaugural Address Was Like No Other in History

He is rich enough, and independent enough, and cantankerous enough that he may not get stuck in the swamps of political compromise.

Donald Trump’s inaugural address is going to go down in history as one of the great ones.I say this as a man with 59 years of public speaking experience and a Ph.D. in American history.

Trump’s speech was different from any previous inaugural address. He spoke directly to his political base. He did not try to pull the country together in some kind of vague, pie-in-the-sky, common-ground political rhetoric. He threw down the gauntlet from the very beginning. Standing in front of the Capitol building, surrounded by former Presidents and politicians, he said that everything they had done in the past has been a way to extract power from the American people and to feather their own nests. This, of course, is exactly what they have done. Nobody had ever said this before in an inaugural address.

More evidence the Wisdom of Crowds is crowding out the nonsense

Well, it was certainly fun to point out all the processed carbage sporting health claims like 100% WHOLE GRAINS on the package. But now let’s turn to the flipside: more evidence that people are ignoring the arterycloggingsaturatedfat! and healthywholegrains! nonsense promoted by The Anointed at the USDA, the American Heart Association, the American Diabetes Association, etc.

First, let’s take a trip to the grocery store … not a Whole Foods, but a local Kroger. As I’ve mentioned before, Kroger introduced a line of minimally processed foods under the brand name Simple Truth. Here’s what Fortune magazine had to say about the brand’s success:

Shoppers are still shopping, but they’re often turning to brands they believe can give them less of the ingredients they don’t want—and for the first time, they can find them in their local Safeway, Wegmans, or Wal-Mart. Kroger’s Simple Truth line of natural food grew to an astonishing $1.2 billion in annual sales in just two years.

“We’re meeting with the prime minister of Canada and we will be meeting with the president of Mexico, who I know, and we’re going to start some negotiations having to do with NAFTA,” Trump said. “We are going to start renegotiating on NAFTA, on immigration and on security at the border.”

Watching major media commit suicide

If Robert F Kennedy Jr is, indeed, given the green light by President Trump to investigate vaccine safety, he’s going to need a truck and a chain and DOJ threats of prosecution to drag key CDC scientists into the light and elicit specific statements from them.

Even then, the odds are these scientists will keep repeating the party line: vaccines are overwhelmingly safe; they have no connection to autism or other neurological damage; the science is settled.

Kennedy could run up against an organized wall of silence—scientists refusing to speak with him, on the basis that he isn’t qualified to make judgements in their “field.”

Coming just three days after Donald Trump became the 45th President of the United States, the mission could arguably be seen as signs of America's a new relationship with Vladimir Putin's administration.

Russian foreign minister says Trump and Putin see eye-to-eye on foreign affairs because they both want to defeat ISIS and avoid 'interfering in other countries' 

President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin see eye to eye when it comes to many foreign policy goals, Russia's foreign minister said today.

Sergey Lavrov was speaking at a news conference with his Hungarian counterpart Peter Szijjarto.

'We have been following the situation in the US,' Lavrov said. 'We can see that many of the major foreign policy issues that Donald Trump has mentioned overlap with what President Putin has been saying about Russia's foreign policy priorities.

'Donald Trump seems to focus on advancing the United States' core interests rather than promoting various ideas and interfering in other countries' internal affairs. This is actually the essence of Russia's foreign policy.'

Having already signed a (mostly symbolic) executive order on Obamacare on Friday night, urging US agencies to “waive, defer, grant exemptions from, or delay the implementation” of provisions deemed to impose fiscal burdens on states, companies or individuals, Trump is preparing to unload a volley of many more executive orders. Courtesy of Axios, which quotes “one of the best-wired Republican lobbyists in town”, here is a preview of the initial round of Trump executive actions, some of which may hit as soon as Sunday afternoon:

President Barack Obama’s last press conference was a success, but only if you consider journalistic incompetence worthy of praise.

During the one-hour affair, Obama answered questions ranging from the commutation of whistleblower Chelsea Manning’s sentence to personal queries concerning his and First Lady Michelle Obama’s approach when talking to their daughters about the 2016 election — not quite a hard-hitting last inquiry for an outgoing president who, as the Los Angeles Times recently noted, managed to keep U.S. military forces “at war for all eight years of [his] tenure.”

All we really have is the truth. Individually, we have neither money nor power, and because truth is our only viable weapon in this war of public opinion, it cannot be compromised, or we'll have nothing.

Lies must constantly be exposed and corrected, so we can slowly refine the common knowledge of what did and didn't happen regarding any particular historic event. Only then can we learn from history rather than suffer it again, and only through discussion and the exposure of lies can we accurately relearn history ourselves.

Women's March in DC leaves millions of cats hungry at home

Following yesterday's Inauguration, half a million American women put on their pink "pussyhats" and marched on Washington, D.C., leaving an estimated 2.5 million starving, meowing cats in their homes completely unattended and deprived of their scheduled mandatory hugs and prolonged belly rubs.

Organized by Planned Parenthood, Council for American-Islamic Relations, the Communist Party, and other progressive movements, American women came to Donald Trump's doorstep to express their anger, fury, indignation, and outrage over the fact that they can't name a single right that men have and women don't.

Another reason to be enraged was, of course, that while they were at the march, toilet seats were being left up in homes all across the country with total impunity.

The Clinton Foundation Is Dead — But The Case Against Hillary Isn't

While everyone's been gearing up for President Trump's inauguration, the Clinton Foundation made a major announcement this week that went by with almost no notice: For all intents and purposes, it's closing its doors.

In a tax filing, the Clinton Global Initiative said it's firing 22 staffers and closing its offices, a result of the gusher of foreign money that kept the foundation afloat suddenly drying up after Hillary Clinton failed to win the presidency.

PETITION - Arrest Madonna for Making Threats Against the White House

The inflammatory statement made by Madonna on January 21, 2017 at the Women's March in DC is a blatant disregard for the welfare of the President, his family and staff. Her arrogance and sense of entitlement as a Hollywood elitist allow her to maintain the confidence that she could make any type of hostile statement and promotion of violence, and face no consequences. We, the signers of this petition, request that Madonna be held accountable and prosecuted to the full extent of the law, just as if any other average citizen had made these same statements.

How We Got Here

America is in trouble because Americans got lazy. Not so much physically but morally. They began to care more about some passing thing than about the things that truly matter; the things that made America unlike other places.

Better than other places.

Things like principles; the plain meaning of words. The Fourth and Fifth Amendments, especially. Which were (past tense deliberate) laws written to articulate and protect principles that matter.

‘FAKE NEWS’? TIME TO CHOOSE: CORPORATE MEDIA FAKES US INTO SUPPORTING ISRAEL’S ORWELLIAN ILLEGAL WAR OF AGGRESSION ON GAZA

“When we now know that all claims for war with Iraq were known lies as they were told (and verbally explained here), and CNN provides similar innuendo for war by an unsourced alleged report with concerns of what might occur in the future allegedly stated by an unnamed US source reporting on an unnamed foreign source, this is propaganda and not news.”

FMR HOUSE SPEAKER SAYS CHILD HE RAPED SHOULD PAY BACK HUSH MONEY SINCE HE BROKE HIS SILENCE

In April of last year, Dennis Hastert, former Speaker of the House and admitted child rapist, was sentenced to 15 months in prison for paying his victims to keep quiet.

Hastert was sentenced, not for raping children, but for illegally structuring bank transactions in an effort to cover up his sexual abuse of young members of a wrestling team he coached.

Now, this sicko pedophile is trying to get back that hush money. Because one of the boys he raped broke his silence, in spite of the $1.7 million in hush money Hastert gave him, this pedophile politician wants his money back.

German Press: "That Was No Presidential Speech; That Was A Declaration Of War"

Following yesterday's openly confrontational, deliberately protectionist presidential address by president Trump, which in various circles has been dubbed the "American carnage" speech for obvious reasons, some of Obama's closest foreign friends are scrambling to find a role in a world that has drastically changed in less than 24 hours. One of them is the foreign leader whom Obama spoke to last before vacating the White House, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who vowed on Saturday to seek compromises on issues like trade and military spending with Trump, adding she would work on preserving the important relationship between Europe and the United States.

"He made his convictions clear in his inauguration speech," Merkel said in remarks broadcast live, a day after Trump vowed to put 'America first'.

"Having A Vagina Is Not Enough" - One Woman's View Of The Million-Pussy-March

Another white lady held a placard reminding me that 'white silence = white consent but Black Lives Matter #BLM'. She said she was marching because women own their own bodies.

And a lady, pushing a stroller with two children on board, facing down the secret service, with a sign that made it clear Trump is 'Not My President'.

Even the speakers sounded confused. As I ate a three piece chicken meal with a side of slaw to recover from hearing the Koran read out in Washington Cathedral, I listened to one manic woman yell at the crowd;

'We are women. And you are we. And we are you', gesturing to make her point clear. It wasn't. But the crowd loved it all the same.

Pass a new gun control law, watch gun sales explode until the law takes effect.
That pattern has played out several times over the years in California, but never so much as in 2016, related largely to a spike in sales as buyers rushed to beat a ban on certain rifles, new figures from the state Department of Justice show.

BEX ALERT - I like velcro and used to drink Tang, but about the moon, was NASA really full of horseshit?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The corporate media faces an uphill battle against the Independent Media. The corporate media, trapped by its business model of lying for profit, cannot start telling the truth. All they can do is try to sabotage the credibility of the Independent Media and so it is hardly surprising that some well-worn "poison the well" hoaxes are once again being planted online, such as "no plane at the Pentagon", Chemtrails, HAARP, The Earth is really flat, and of course, the claim that Apollo was faked.

I am rather surprised (and disappointed) that Zerohedge ran this story!

The 9,000 feet giant volcano located on the border between North Korea and China is the highest peak of the Korean Peninsula.

Mount Paekdu is not far from a North Korean nuclear test facility where the government is conducting nuclear bomb tests.

Such has been the fear around Mount Paektu that it has sparked a rare collaboration with North Korea and the West, with the largely secretive nation inviting scientists from the UK and US to help study it.

Trump Fires Up Europe's Anti-Establishment Movement

"The genie will not go back into the bottle again, whether you like it or not." — Geert Wilders, MP and head of the Party for Freedom, the Netherlands.

A growing number of Europeans are rebelling against decades of government-imposed multiculturalism, politically correct speech codes and mass migration from the Muslim world.

Europe's establishment parties, far from addressing the concerns of ordinary voters, have tried to silence dissent by branding naysayers as xenophobes, Islamophobes and neo-Nazis.

"In many respects, France and Germany are proving they do not understand the meaning of Brexit. They are reflexively, almost religiously, following exactly the path that has provoked the EU's current existential crisis." — Ambassador John R. Bolton, former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations.

New CIA Docs Reveal Black Budget “Project Star Gate” To Study “Supernatural” Abilities

The CIA has published online nearly 13 million pages of declassified records, including papers on the US role in overthrowing foreign governments, but some of the most mind blowing information is in reference to the secret ‘Star Gate’ telepathy project.

The details of CIA’s “Project Star Gate” are riveting, and expose uncharted waters to be researched as far as there is virtually no mainstream science or pop culture awareness of the phenomena exposed in the project – and is often ridiculed as the stuff of science fiction.

iPhone Maker Moving Towards A $7 Billion Investment in the States

Suit an attempt to make his 700-acre beachfront estate more private, according to reports. Mark Zuckerberg is reportedly suing Hawaiian families who have ancestral rights to land within his $100 million (£81.2 million) property in a bid to force them to sell their plots.
