Editor Explains How NATO, EU Benefit From Silencing Russian Media

The US and EU efforts to silence Russian news outlets through enforcing the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA) and launching the East StratCom unit to counter so-called Russian propaganda evoke strong memories of George Orwell's "1984," Eric Van de Beek, editor of Novini, the Netherlands' geopolitical magazine, has told Radio Sputnik.

Tackling corruption: Why Saudi Prince Muhammad’s approach raises questions

James Dorsey argues that “power and assets rather than anti-corruption” are behind Saudi Crown Prince Muhammad’s purge of princes and businessmen, and that the aim appears to be “to intimidate and put the kingdom’s elite on notice”.>>

Why Mueller Is REALLY Indicting Flynn

So why is Mueller really going after Flynn?

When Flynn was head of the U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency and afterwards, he blew the whistle on the U.S. and its allies willfully allowing Islamic terrorists to flourish in Syria.

That didn’t ingratiate him with the Deep State …

Then last November, Flynn ruffled more feathers by writing:

The primary bone of contention between the U.S. and Turkey is Fethullah Gülen, a shady Islamic mullah residing in Pennsylvania whom former President Clinton once called his “friend” in a well circulated video.

Pakistan Protests Swell Into Nationwide Chaos: Islamabad Protests Spreading Precipitously

In early November, from 2,000 protesters from the Tehreek-e Labaik Ya Rasool Allah Pakistan (TLY) began a sit-in in the Pakistani capital of Islamabad. The protesters, led by cleric Khadim Hussain Rizvi, were originally provoked by a minor change to the oath for election candidates.

Though the government has already reversed the oath change, the TLY has kept the protest going, with Rizvi saying they want the resignation of the Law Minister, and that they need to “defend the honor of the Prophet.”

Officials had for weeks tried to placate them, offering talks, and even an apology from the Law Minister. On Saturday, however, police and paramilitary forces tried to push them off the streets, and that went very poorly.

After violent exchanges in the streets, more protesters are in the streets than ever, and Islamabad’s protest is now just the largest of several protests across the country, threatening to bring multiple cities grinding to a halt.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Are we looking at a potential regime change in Islamabad?!?

This is who these people are, what they believe, and what they are demanding of the government:

The Tehreek-e-Labaik

They are looking for a complete return to Sharia law in Pakistan, through legal process, and to fight back against any human rights gains made by Pakistani women in the last couple of decades.

Saudi-led ‘Arab NATO’ declares total war on terrorism; Iran, Iraq & Syria not invited

Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Salman has vowed to “wipe” terrorists from the “face of the earth” using resources available to the Islamic Military Alliance, a so-called ‘Arab NATO’ which claims to be targeting a “faceless enemy,” rather than any particular “sect” or “country.”

Formed in 2015 by then-deputy Crown Prince and defense minister of Saudi Arabia, Mohammed bin Salman, the IMA has so far only functioned on paper. Now the Crown Prince wants to take his brainchild to the next level by declaring a total “war against terrorism,” during the Sunday summit of IMA, also referred to as the Islamic Military Counter Terrorism Coalition (IMCTC) or the “Arab NATO.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

OH, REALLY?!?!?

Forgive me, but I am nearly close to choking from nausea, invoked by the glaring hipocrisy of the words coming out of this guy's mouth, relative to the hellish realities on the ground he has created for the people of Yemen.

So please: when does Prince Salman intend to announce the end of the terror he and his coalition are raining down on Yemen with these damnable bombing raids, which are killing civillian women, children, and the medically fragile elderly here?!?

When will he stop the US-enabled blockades of Yemeni ports, leading to massive deaths by malnutrition?!?

And when will he get a reasonable, and rapid, medical response going to the horrific outbreak of cholera, which is killing thousands in Yemen?!?

Prince MBS, if you want to stop a lot of terror in the region, you had better damned well take a good, long look in a mirrior first.

THE DARK INEVITABILITY OF ZIONISM

Put broadly, BDS is an effort to help save the positive potential inherent in modern post-colonial society: the civilizing potential to be found in international law, in human and civil rights, in a benevolent and egalitarian rule of law for all of us.

So successful has BDS been to date, and so much potential does it have to help force Israel down the same road as white-ruled South Africa, that Israel and its surrogates in the U.S. and Europe are willing to undermine the very laws and rights that help uphold what freedoms there are within the public realm. For instance, in the U.S., the very right to engage in such a boycott is under Zionist attack, and by extension, so is the constitutional protection to free speech. American Zionists seem willing to subvert their own constitutional protections in order to support a racist foreign state.

SAUDIS WOO TORY MPS WITH LAVISH DINNERS & HOTELS AS 20 MILLION YEMENIS STARVE

The Saudi blockade of Yemen has left 20 million people on the brink of starvation, but some UK parliamentarians prefer not to notice, instead filling up their bellies with the help of royal hospitality of Riyadh, measuring in tens of thousands of pounds.

According to the Middle East Eye, members of UK parliament have accepted some £94,189 ($126,939) worth of luxury hotel stays, lavish dinners, business class flights, donations and other forms of hospitality from the Saudi government this year alone.

So far this year, 13 Conservative MPs have accepted the royal welcome, as well as one Labour MP, who reportedly got a donation worth £6,722 ($8,964), from the Saudi Kingdom.

SAUDI ARABIA’S COALITION CRUMBLES IN YEMEN. 5 KEY TAKEAWAYS FROM A FAILED WAR

Middle East Eye editor-in-chief David Hearst notes that “All in all, the first military venture to be launched by the 32-year-old Saudi prince as defense minister is a tactical and strategic shambles.”

The Saudi war is heavily backed by the United States and the United Kingdom.

Zerohedge reports on MBS’ disastrous and illegal military adventure in Yemen that is killing millions of civilians and bankrupting the Saudi Kingdom.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Good that the coalition appears to be crumbling.

I, very frankly, hate being a citizen of a country colluding with Saudi Arabia in war crimes in Yemen. And I link back to these images again and again, because I think the American people need to be having a very honest dialogue about what is being done, with our tax dollars and in our names in the Middle East.

It is financially very profitable for the US merchants of death to continue to supply Saudi Arabia with the bombs and bullets which kill, and maim for life, innocent infants, toddlers, women, and the medically fragile elderly.

These same corporations, the heads of which have all had their consciences surgically removed before taking office, contribute generously to both parties, so why shouldn't the assassinations of Yemeni innocents continue, as long as they are profitable?!? That is the only thing that matters anymore in American society, profitability, right?!?

Here is what that "profitability" is looking like to Yemeni kids these days:

U.K. Begins Another Gun Surrender Initiative Amid Increase in Gun Crime

The United Kingdom's National Ballistics Intelligence Service (NABIS) is conducting a new gun surrender program from Nov. 13 to Nov. 26 after gun crime in England and Wales increased by more than a quarter in the past year.

The Office for National Statistics found a 27 percent increase in crimes involving firearms during its most recent review of crime data. Despite a near ban on the civilian ownership of handguns the review found crimes committed with handguns increased by 25 percent and accounted for the majority of gun crimes. The agency said the increases in 2016 were part of a multiyear trend.

"The latest rise continues an upward trend seen in firearms offences in the last few years, however, offences are still 31 percent below a decade ago," the most recent annual report from the agency said. "Over the last year, over two-thirds (32 of the 439) of police forces recorded a rise in offences involving firearms."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

To the knotheads in NABIS; the baddies will not surrender their guns, making the next rise in gun crime after this "surrender" a dead moral certainty!!

Keystone's existing pipeline spills far more than predicted to regulators

TransCanada Corp’s (TRP.TO) existing Keystone pipeline has leaked substantially more oil, and more often, in the United States than indicated in risk assessments the company provided to regulators before the project began operating in 2010, according to documents reviewed by Reuters.

The Canadian company is now seeking to expand the pipeline system linking Alberta’s oil fields to U.S. refineries with its proposed Keystone XL project, which has U.S. President Donald Trump’s backing.

The existing 2,147-mile (3,455 km) Keystone system from Hardisty, Alberta, to the Texas coast has had three significant leaks in the United States since it began operating in 2010, including a 5,000-barrel spill this month in rural South Dakota, and two others, each about 400 barrels, in South Dakota in 2016 and North Dakota in 2011.

Arrest made in vandalism of 5 black churches; Bias ruled out as motive

Authorities have ruled out bias as the motive in the vandalism of five predominantly black churches after charging a 45-year-old Morristown resident on Sunday.

Zuri C. Towns attended services at one of the churches as a child, Morris County Prosecutor Fredric Knapp said.

"As a result of the investigation, no evidence was obtained that would indicate this was a bias incident which legally requires purpose to intimidate a person or group based upon their protected class," authorities said in a news release announcing the arrest.

Towns has been charged with four counts of fourth-degree criminal mischief and one count of third-degree criminal mischief.

Israel arrests 280 Palestinians for Facebook posts

The Israeli occupation authorities have arrested 280 Palestinians since the start of the Quds Uprising in October 2015 for posts or “likes” on social media, the PLO’s Palestinian Prisoners’ and Freed Prisoners’ Committee said on Sunday.

According to Quds Press, the head of the studies and documentation department with the Committee said that Israel has increased the number of detentions of social media users, including women and children who posted, commented positively about or liked pro-Palestinian social media content. Abdel-Naser Ferwaneh explained that most of those detained are from occupied Jerusalem. While some were indicted and sentenced to prison terms or fined, others were held under administrative detention with neither charge nor trial.

What to expect when ‘We the People’ win over illegal .01% US rogue state empire: 1) temporary depression, 2) massive Truth, 3) unimaginable inspiration/breakthroughs. Are you ready?

*hyperlinks live at source*

The US is an lying and illegal rogue state empire (full documentation and video walkthrough here). This is ongoing history of empire: taking over as much of the world possible to control resources (natural and humans as work animals), and with propaganda in corporate media and public education for pretense of a constitutional republic. Importantly, the Roman Empire devolved from a republic into tragic-comic .01% oligarchic “eat their own” self-destruction, as did ancient Greek democracy voting for the death of Socrates rather than face his obvious questions about virtue within that wanna-be empire.

There are three possible outcomes of this human condition:
The empire wins, with tighter control over We the People to serve them.
We the People win, after an Emperor’s New Clothes breakthrough of truth and .01% arrests for obvious crimes centered in war, looting, and lying.

Syria War, Sochi Peace

The main take away of the trilateral, two hour-long Russia-Iran-Turkey summit in Sochi on the future of Syria was expressed by Russian President Vladimir Putin:

“The presidents of Iran and Turkey supported the initiative to convene an All-Syrian Congress for national dialogue in Syria. We agreed to hold this important event at the proper level and ensure the participation of representatives of different sectors of Syrian society.”

In practice, that means Russian, Iranian and Turkish foreign ministries and defense departments are tasked to “gather delegates from various political parties, internal and external opposition, ethnic and confessional groups at the negotiating table.”
***
In Danang, Putin and Trump may not have held a crucial bilateral. But Sergey Lavrov and Rex Tillerson did issue a joint statement on Syria – without, crucially, mentioning Astana; instead, the emphasis was on the slow-moving UN Geneva process (a new round of talks is scheduled for next week).

An extremely divisive issue – not exactly admitted by both parties – is the presence of foreign forces in Syria. From Washington’s perspective, Russian, Iranian and Turkish forces must all leave.

But then there’s the Pentagon, which is in Syria without a UN resolution (Russia and Iran were invited by Damascus).

Mistakenly Posted Photos Allegedly Expose UK Training Saudi Forces in Yemen War

According to The Daily Mail, the secret training program is allegedly aimed at teaching so-called "irregular warfare" combat skills to Saudi forces and involves some 50 UK military personnel.

The British military is training Saudi forces to fight in Yemen, where a conflict between the Riyadh-backed government and rebels has claimed over 12,000 lives, The Daily Mail reported Sunday.

The program, codenamed Operation Crossways, involves nearly 50 British military personnel from the 2nd Battalion of the Royal Regiment of Scotland, according to the report. They are teaching "irregular warfare" techniques to officers from the Royal Saudi Land Forces Infantry Institute.

The British military involvement is a "shameful complicity" in the suffering Yemenis are facing in the ongoing conflict, Tory lawmaker and former Development Secretary Andrew Mitchell told the newspaper.

"The UK has been shamefully complicit in Saudi’s role in Yemen," Mitchell said.

Self-driving cars programmed to decide who dies in a crash

It’s a bright, sunny day and you’re alone in your spanking new self-driving vehicle, sprinting along the two-lane Tunnel of Trees on M-119 high above Lake Michigan north of Harbor Springs. You’re sitting back, enjoying the view. You’re looking out through the trees, trying to get a glimpse of the crystal blue water below you, moving along at the 45-mile-an-hour speed limit.

As you approach a rise in the road, heading south, a school bus appears, driving north, one driven by a human, and it veers sharply toward you. There is no time to stop safely, and no time for you to take control of the car.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is a scenario right out of "I Robot", the 2004 film staring Will Smith, where just such a calculation was made, and spares the Smith's character at the price of a little girl, mortally injured in the other car in the crash, and left to die.

But science fiction morphs into science fact at a really rapid pace in the 21st century, and such technology will become the norm faster than we can calculate at this point.

US military to develop genetically modified plants to spy in environments ‘unsuitable for traditional sensors’

The US military wants to deploy plants as “the next generation of intelligence gatherers”.

Genetically modified plants could be employed as self-sustaining sensors to gather information in settings unsuitable for more traditional technologies.

The Defence Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), which is responsible for the development of emerging technologies in the US military, has called for scientists to submit ideas for how to harness the power of plants.

In the past, DARPA has produced information-gathering technologies such as the satellites and seismographs employed to ensure Soviet compliance with the Nuclear Test Ban Treaty.

But in this new initiative, termed the Advanced Plant Technologies (APT) programme, the agency is looking to the natural world for help.

Turn off cameras and tracking devices in children's Christmas presents to prevent hacking, Information Commissioner tells parents

Parents should turn off the cameras and automatic tracking devices in their children’s Christmas presents because of the risk of hacking, the Information Commissioners’ Office has warned.

With a rise in the number of ‘smart’ toys and devices gracing the wish list this year, parents should consider the safety of them being connected directly to the internet before giving them as gifts, according to the data regulator.

When adults are not going to personally use cameras in toys to view what is happening remotely then they should consider turning the function off all together, Deputy Commissioner Steve Wood said.

The warning comes amid growing concerns about the ability of criminals to hack into toys containing sensors, microphones, cameras, data storage and other multi-media capabilities.

50,000 children in Yemen have died of starvation and disease so far this year, monitoring group says

An international aid group says an estimated 130 children or more die every day in war-torn Yemen from extreme hunger and disease.

Save the Children said late Wednesday that a continuing blockade by the Saudi-led coalition fighting Yemen's Shiite rebels is likely to further increase the death rate. It says over 50,000 children are believed to have died in 2017.

Saudi Arabia blocked Yemen's ports after a rebel missile attack near Riyadh. It said Monday the coalition would lift the blockade after widespread international criticism.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

You have to understand; this genocide of Yemen's children is precisely the outcome the Butcher of Yemen, AKA Saudi Arabia's Prince Salman, eagerly wants to bring about, courtesy of US military collusion in Saudi war crmes.

In fact, I am rather amazed that he has not ordered the complete carpet bombing of Yemen at this point; perhaps that is his "next tactical step".

UKRAINE, BELARUS EXPEL DIPLOMATS FOLLOWING ESPIONAGE CLAIMS

Ukraine fired its deputy-head of foreign intelligence and expelled a Belarussian diplomat a day after the government of Belarus claimed that it busted a Ukrainian spy ring that recruited local agents. The chain of events began on October 25, when the Belarussian Committee for State Security (KGB) arrested a Ukrainian journalist. The journalist, Pavlo Sharoyko, is based in the Belarussian capital Minsk and works as the Belarus correspondent for the National Radio Company of Ukraine —the country’s public broadcaster. Even though Sharoyko was arrested in October, his imprisonment was not publicly announced by Belarus until last Saturday. On Tuesday, November 21, at a press conference held at the KGB headquarters in Minsk, KGB spokesman Dmitry Pobyarzhin told reporters that Sharoyko was arrested for engaging in espionage on behalf of the Ukrainian government.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is about to get ugly, very quickly, and will have extensive repercussions that may lead to a shooting war between Ukraine and Russia.
