THERESA MAY REJECTS APPEAL FROM 9/11 SURVIVORS TO RELEASE SUPPRESSED SAUDI ARABIA TERROR REPORT

Theresa May has rejected an appeal from survivors of the 9/11 attacks to make public a suppressed report into the role of Saudi Arabia in funding Islamist extremism in the UK. Earlier this summer, the British government announced it had decided not to publish the information, citing national security reasons and the “vast amount of personal information” it contained.

US War Games Likely to Trigger Another North Korea Missile Test - Seoul

Tensions on the Korean Peninsula appeared to ease up following intense saber-rattling by the US and North Korean sides last week, but once Pyongyang’s leaders observe the US ramping up war games again, another ballistic missile test may be imminent, Seoul warns.

Ulchi Freedom Guardian drills are slated to commence on Monday, Korean media reported Wednesday. "There is a great possibility that North Korea will carry out strategic or tactical provocations to protest the latest UN sanctions and the UFG exercises," the South Korean Defense Ministry said in a statement to the nation’s lawmakers.

Military exercises in which US forces essentially rehearse and practice attacking the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) "are not funny to [North] Korea," Radio Sputnik Loud & Clear host Brian Becker said Tuesday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

OK, a logical question here: how in heaven's name can Kim Jung Un NOT see US war games, right off the cost of North Korea, practicing how to invade his country, as a "dangerously provocative act"?!?

And frankly, I do not have a good answer for this.

Who was responsible for the violence in Charlottesville? Here's what witnesses say

The clashes that broke out over the weekend at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Va., have become a new touchstone in the nation’s long-running debate over racism, free speech and violence.

One woman was killed and many more injured when a car, allegedly driven by a rally participant, sped into a crowd of anti-racism protesters. Two state troopers monitoring the action died in a helicopter crash later in the day, though no foul play was suspected.

The event quickly took on enormous political importance as Democrats and Republicans alike denounced the violence and the white supremacist views espoused at the far-right rally. President Trump has also denounced the racist groups, but he suggests that anti-racism counter-demonstrators share some of the blame. On Tuesday, he said “both sides” were responsible for the bloodshed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In looking/listening at the reports of this incident, President Trump was absolutely correct in his assessment; both the Neo-Nazis and Antifa bore responsibility for the deaths and injuries here.

ARE THESE GMO MEATLESS BURGERS SAFE TO EAT? THE FDA ISN’T SURE

The FDA informed the manufacturer of Impossible Burger – a meat-like burger made using only plants – that it had not yet proven that the product’s key genetically modified (GM) ingredient is safe for consumption. The company, Impossible Foods, decided it knew better and launched the product anyway. [1}

The GMO faux-meat burgers are available at 43 restaurants nationwide, including several burger chains.

Impossible Foods maintains that its SLH/heme is identical to the SLH already in the food supply, but Impossible Foods had no safety testing data to support that claim, said Michael Hansen, a senior scientist at Consumers Union.

Hansen explained:

“You are taking something that has never been in the food supply before and you come to the FDA, say it is GRAS, and you have no safety data, particularly from feeding studies. Their argument has literally come down to saying this is exactly identical to the heme we’ve always been eating, but it’s not true.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Great to know that we have an FDA which doesn't mandate food product safety before a product is introduced to an unsuspecting public!!

Why is there no halt in production of this product, until safety testing is truly finished?!?

A PATENT EXISTS TO PROVIDE HOME SURVEILLANCE USING AMI SMART METERS

AMI (Advanced Metering Infrastructure) Smart Meters (AMI SMs) are being forced on to everyone’s home, apartment, condo and businesses in the United States with total disregard for numerous legal aspects, with one specifically-egregious issue experiencing total abandonment or disregard for the U.S. Constitution, plus individuals’ rights under their respective home states’ constitutions.

So, what am I talking about? Privacy and the right to be secure in your home! The Search and Seizure aspects found and shielded in the Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution are not being respected nor enforced by state public utility commissions and utility companies, most of who are harassing customers!

AMI SMs are nothing but “surveillance computers”!

Let me say that again. AMI SMs are nothing short of “surveillance computers”. They are built and intended to

Report: ‘Unite the Right’ Organizer Jason Kessler Was Obama Supporter Involved With Occupy Movement

Rumors abound on white nationalist forums that Kessler’s ideological pedigree before 2016 was less than pure and seem to point to involvement in the Occupy movement and past support for President Obama.

At one recent speech in favor of Charlottesville’s status as a sanctuary city,Kessler live-streamed himself as an attendee questioned him and apologized for an undisclosed spat during Kessler’s apparent involvement with Occupy. Kessler appeared visibly perturbed by the woman’s presence and reminders of their past association.

Kessler himself has placed his “red-pilling” around December of 2013 when a PR executive was publicly excoriated for a tasteless Twitter joke about AIDS in Africa.

Regarding the incident, Kessler stated “… so it was just a little race joke, nothing that big of a deal, she didn’t have that many followers, she probably didn’t think anybody was gonna see it,”

As Leak Probes Abound, Tillerson Promotes Diplomat Who Passed Classified Info To AIPAC: The promotion of David Satterfield comes as the Trump administration cracks down on leakers elsewhere in the government.

As the Trump administration widens its crackdown on unauthorized leaks to the press, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has promoted a diplomat who provided classified information to an influential pro-Israel lobbying organization that resulted in espionage charges.

David Satterfield, a long time Middle East hand with extensive experience in the region, has been named acting assistant secretary of state for Near Eastern Affairs, a State Department official told BuzzFeed News.

In 2005, federal prosecutors said Satterfield provided classified national security secrets to a top lobbyist for the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, a powerful special interest group known simply as AIPAC. The accusation was included in an indictment that charged two former AIPAC employees, Steven Rosen and Keith Weissman, and a former Pentagon official, Lawrence Franklin, under the Espionage Act with illegally trafficking in classified information.

What if the DNC Russian “hack” was really a leak after all? A new report raises questions media and Democrats would rather ignore

Last week the respected left-liberal magazine The Nation published an explosive article that details in great depth the findings of a new report — authored in large part by former U.S. intelligence officers — which claims to present forensic evidence that the Democratic National Committee was not hacked by the Russians in July 2016. Instead, the report alleges, the DNC suffered an insider leak, conducted in the Eastern time zone of the United States by someone with physical access to a DNC computer.

Hey, when the DNC embraces a false narrative, it embraces it all the way!!

FBI Admits Federal Informants Linked to Deadly Charlottesville Riots; Unlikely To Face Charges

FBI insiders said it is unlikely leaders of the radical groups that clashed in demonstrations turned deadly in Charlottesville, VA will face prosecution.

Why?

FBI said they have already identified several federal informants who participated in the mob-like riots over the weekend in Virginia. The FBI is also now working those sources to piece together the events from Charlottesville, sources said.

But FBI agents have deemed the newly-minted investigation dicey, having to navigate separate agreements with embedded intelligence assets while trying to pinpoint responsibility for the violence.

Late Saturday, the Justice Department announced the federal probe. The investigation, spearheaded by the Richmond, VA FBI field office, was launched after an Ohio man drove his car through a crowd of demonstrators killing one woman and injuring dozens.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This sickens me.

IF, in fact, paid FBI agents were actually here, what was their function, other than intel?!?

Was it to worsen the mood of the mob to the point where violence would be the inevitable result?!?

At this moment, if there was an FBI order to foment rage and rioting on the part of these informants, whoever gave that order person needs to be sacked, immediately, and publicly, by President Trump.

Because in allowing these riots to move forward, it caused deaths, massive injuries, and deeply scarred the soul of this nation in a way that it might not be able to ultimately survive or overcome.

US report on religious freedom in Iran ‘false, biased, politicized’

Iran’s Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Ghasemi said the US State Department's annual report on international religious freedom is unrealistic, unfounded, and biased with certain political goals.

“The US report once again has presented a distorted and politicized picture of religious freedom in the Islamic republic of Iran with unfounded and unacceptable accusations leveled against the country,” Bahram Ghasemi said in a statement on Wednesday.

He went on to add, “making subjective and unfounded interpretations of religions and religious beliefs ultimately leads to the escalation of inter-religious crises and conflicts with no positive outcome.”

SAUDI GOVERNMENT SECRETLY ABDUCTING ITS CRITICS FROM ABROAD, SAY DISSIDENTS

At least three prominent Saudi dissidents living in Europe, who openly criticized Saudi Arabia’s system of government, have been illegally abducted by the country’s monarchy in the past two years, according to a report by the BBC. All three, who are members of the Saudi royal family, are missing, believed to be dead or held against their will in Saudi Arabia. But the country’s government will not comment on their fate.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would politely like to remind both the British and American governments that this is the same Saudi government to which they feel perfectly comfortable selling weapons, with which to assassinate women, children, and the medically fragile elderly in Yemen.

July 20, 2016 – Fliers distributed in Raleigh and other North Carolina cities last weekend urging residents to join the Ku Klux Klan are part of an apparent nationwide recruiting drive for the white supremacist organization with one minor twist: the phone number and websites listed trace back to a Klan chapter whose leader is a reported FBI informant.

Flashback: KKK: Producers Paid Us to 'Fake' A&E Documentary. A&E: We're Investigating...

In an exclusive report published Friday, Variety details the claims of over two dozen Ku Klux Klan members about the abruptly cancelled A&E documentary series "Escaping the KKK: A Documentary Series Exposing Hate in America." According to Klansmen, the production company This Is Just a Test that created the docu-series paid them "hundreds of dollars in cash each" to fabricate "significant" portions of the show and "distort the facts of their lives to fit the documentary’s predetermined narrative: tension between Klan members and relatives of theirs who wanted to get out of the Klan."

Flashback: Media, Twitter Freak Out About Probably Fake KKK Trump Backers

In the midst of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s huge win in the Nevada caucuses, several people on Twitter and some media outlets reported Trump’s candidacy turned out avowed supporters of the Ku Klux Klan (KKK). But even a quick look at the evidence suggests the mysterious “KKK” support was actually an anti-Trump stunt which may have even been carried out by black men.

During Tuesday night’s caucuses, pictures surfaced on Twitter of two men in the KKK’s hooded white garb carrying pro-Trump signs outside of Cimarron-Memorial High School in Las Vegas, which was a caucus location. Instead of going inside for the caucus, the two figures apparently demonstrated outside until they left at the request of a police officer.

Eyewitnesses say that driver James Fields’ car was “attacked” at an intersection in Charlottesville, Virginia minutes before he sped into left-wing counter-protesters, injuring a handful and killing one. This attack could serve as the basis for Fields’ defense. Some cops reportedly believed that Fields struck the counter-protesters by accident while trying to escape violent attackers.

20 Declassified Files That Prove Governmental Crime And Conspiracy – Part 1

Declassified files are useful in a world where truthtellers and open-minded investigators are shut down, censored and accused of being “conspiracy theorists.” Our world is fast becoming a digital censorship grid, where corporate technological behemoths like Google (who own YouTube) and Facebook rig algorithms (which control search engine results and news feeds) to elevate the information they want you to see and bury the information they don’t want you to see. Amazon too is part of this emerging multinational corporate technological oligarchy, and you may remember they have been caught censoring books in the past (such as No One Died at Sandy Hook by Jim Fetzer) by forbidding them to be sold on their platform. The handy thing about declassified docs is that they are genuine pieces of evidence that prove governmental criminality.

Antifa Protesters Crash Heather Heyer’s Funeral

A group of antifascist protesters armed with purple shields and bats showed up to the Wednesday funeral of a woman mowed down by a white supremacist who struck her with a vehicle.

Antifa, a collection of left-wing protesters, decided to crash the funeral of Heather Heyer, a white woman who died after a white supremacist drove his car into a crowd of protesters during a white nationalist riot.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This doesn't even make any sense! If Antifa is opposite the nationalists, then they would show respect and sympathy for Heather, not beat up the people at her funeral.

The white supremacist violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, over the weekend came after thousands of neo-Nazis, Ku Klux Klan members and other white nationalists descended on Charlottesville to protest the city’s plan to remove a Confederate statue of Robert E. Lee. The effort to remove this statue was spurred in part by the African-American city Vice-Mayor Wes Bellamy, who convinced his fellow city councilmembers not only to vote to remove the statue, but also to create a “reparations fund” for Charlottesville’s African-American residents.

What’s Really Happening in #Venezuela – From Someone Who Knows

The BBC is responsible for some of the most disingenuous portrayals. They’re showing violent protesters as if they’re some kind of defenders of peaceful protesters against a repressive police force, but in reality peaceful protests have been untouched by police.

What happens is that the guarimbas [violent, armed opposition groups] follow the peaceful protests and when they come near police, they insert themselves in between the two. They then push and push and push until there’s a reaction – and they have cameras and journalists on hand to record the reaction, so it looks like the police are being aggressive.

We were once filming a protest and a group of guarimbas challenged us. If we’d said we were with teleSur, at the very least they’d have beaten us and taken our equipment. But we told them we were American freelance journalists – they need Americans to film them and publicise them, so we were accepted.

Massive nationwide #MarchOnGoogle August 19th … join the protest against techno tyranny and ‘Goolag’ dictators

Frustrated with Google’s continued efforts to silence free speech and control the content that shows up on people’s internet searches, protesters from all across the country are planning a multi-locale “March on Google” on August 19 to make their voices heard. The nationwide event will reportedly take place at ground zero, Google’s headquarters in Mountain View, California, as well as in New York City, Washington, D.C., Austin, Texas, Boston, Los Angeles, Pittsburgh, Atlanta, and Kirkland, Washington (near Seattle).

Dubbed as a coordinated effort to challenge Google’s “silencing (of) dissenting voices,” the protest was sparked after the recent firing by Google of James Damore, a company employee who wrote a memo entitled “Google’s Ideological Echo Chamber.” Some news outlets have described the memo as being “anti-diversity,” but in reality, it simply challenges Google’s discriminatory policies that cater to LGBT people, for instance, at the expense of everyone else.

Charlottesville

Listening to NPR this morning confirmed what I already knew. Charlottesville is being turned into another nail in President Trump’s coffin.

NPR had no interest whatsoever in reporting the actual facts about what had occurred in Charlottesville. The several “interviews” with the like-minded were orchestrated to produce the desired propaganda result: It was all Trump’s fault.

It was Trump’s fault for many reasons. He had stirred up White Supremacists and Nazis by appealing during the presidential election campaign to their supremacist views with his slogan “America first.”

Of course, what Trump means by “America first,” is precisely what the voters understood him to mean—the interest of the broad American public should come before trade deals that serve the interests of other countries and the narrow profit interests of global corporations. However, the NPR propagandists put words in Trump’s mouth and twisted the meaning of the slogan to be “White America Comes First.”

It’s not that they would know to even envy us at all. It’s like living inside a mist. The idea that they would envy America, it’s just not the case.”

Apparently the war mongers didn't get any traction with the "North Korea is gonna nuke us" propaganda, most likely because Americans recall being lied to about Iraq's nukes, Iran's nukes, and Syria's poison gas, etc. etc. etc. etc.

BREAKING: “Unite the Right” was actually STAGED by the Left?

If the tragic events in Charlottesville this past weekend and the near-immediate cries by the Left and the “mainstream” media within 24 hours to dismantle every enduring vestige of the Old South seem a little too perfectly timed to you, then pat yourself on the back: Your instincts serve you well.

As it turns out, the Charlottesville event itself was set up not by “right-wing racists” but by a Left-wing operative.

In a bombshell report by iBankCoin, the “Unite the Right” event organizer, Jason Kessler, was an “Occupy” movement and Obama supporter just eight months ago.

That’s right; Kessler was reportedly a supporter of President Obama as the far-Left anarchist “Occupy” movement as recently as November 2016, before he established the alleged white supremacist organization “Unity & Security for America.”

Iran Threatens to Quit Nuclear Deal If US Keeps Adding Sanctions

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, replaying to the latest round of US sanctions and threats, insisted his country remains committed to the P5+1 nuclear deal for the time being, despite repeated US violations. He warned this could change, however.

Iran has repeatedly sought redress for violations to mediators of the deal, but the US has continued to reimpose sanctions they removed under the deal, coming up with new pretexts, usually pretexts very light on details. Rouhani warned that if this continues, Iran might be forced to quit the nuclear deal.

Rouhani said US actions prove they can’t be trusted to deal fairly over the pact. Iran’s parliament, particularly the hardliners, are pressuring him to make some sort of reaction, and this is likely Rouhani’s attempt to warn the other five signatories that the deal could be at risk.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I kind of hate it when a guy I don't particularly care for, is absolutely correct, as Rouhani is on his assessment of the US's behaviour regarding the P5+1 Agreement.

This laying on of more sanctions against Iran, on issues which have nothing to do with the actual agreement, are simply fabricated out of thin air.

And then we have this very worrying story, out of antiwar.com from yesterday:

Nikki Haley Accuses Iran of ‘Holding the World Hostage’ With Nuclear Deal: State Dept Vows to Keep Sanctioning Iran for Non-Nuclear Reasons
The story goes on to say:

"Many in the Trump Administration are openly hostile toward the nuclear deal, and Haley suggested Iran was using the existence of the deal as a pretext for “support for terrorism, disregard for human rights, and violations of UN Security Council resolutions.”

These allegations are built largely not on anything Iran’s done, but on consistent US efforts to undermine the pact with new sanctions to replace those they were required by the deal to lift, with Haley suggesting Iran thinks it’s immune to getting those sanctions back so long as they comply with the nuclear deal."

It's very clear what the White House is doing here; pressuring Iran to leave the P5+1 deal through these sanctions, as a prelude to a military action against it.

And of course, Israel's Netanyahu would love to see Israel's alleged "existential threat" in the region "neutralized" (but only, mind you, at the costs of American blood and American money).

This administration has gone down a very dark path of accusing countries it doesn't like, or wants to regime change, of doing what they haven't, then punishing them for it.

I can think of no more painfully clear examples of that than of the US sanctioning Russia for allegedly "annexing" Crimea, which it did not, in 2014.

The same thing holds true here with Iran.

But I would like to very carefully caution President Trump that such a military action against Iran, may come at an horrific cost to the US military.

Russian officials and military have pledged, should Iran be attacked, to come to its defense militarily. This means that there will be a war with Russia, as well as with Iran.

And right now, the US military doesn't have the money, the manufacturing, the troop strength, or the weaponry to compete effectively against Russia in a military showdown over Iran. The Russian weaponry in Syria shows that it has had some major technological breakthroughs, and that weaponry is now in high demand around the world:

If Google and Facebook are not regulated, their politically-motivated censorship will drive America to open warfare in the streets

The echo chamber of the illogical, irrational and enraged Left — the liberal mob — is magnified by the selective censorship of internet gatekeepers like Google and Facebook, all of which are engaged in the most outrageous distortions and censorship imaginable, deliberately silencing all conservative voices while amplifying left-wing channels and (fake) news sources, no matter how dishonest or hypocritical they are. This is all part of a deliberate scheme to silence open debate and suppress the voices of conservatives, heterosexuals, White people or Christians in order to favor lunatic left-wing culture that’s rooted in delusional thinking, anti-science “biology” and intense racism, bigotry and hatred toward anyone who doesn’t bow down to their totalitarianism cult.

US Failure, Blame China

America’s chronic trade deficit with the rest of the world is testimony to a failed US economy. In reality, the US has no-one else to blame but itself for such an historic failure.

But in typical chauvinist fashion, the Trump administration has found a handy scapegoat by blaming China — its top bilateral trading partner. President Donald Trump this week ordered a probe into alleged trade malpractices by China, including claims of intellectual property theft and unfair subsidies.

These supposed grievances against China formed a major part of his election campaign last year, when the tycoon-turned-politician would whip up supporters in rustbelt states with emotive claims about how China was "raping our economy".

Hellstorm The Documentary

Wartime propaganda is not concerned with truth. It is concerned with painting the enemy in the worst possible terms. The victors write the histories, and after enduring a war victor populations don’t want to read that their side’s behavior was no different, and possibly worse, than the cruel and inhuman behavior of the vanquished.

Obviously, this puts limits on what historians can write if they want readers and university careers. It is only many years later that truth can begin to make its appearance.

VP Pence: US Will ‘Bring Full Measure of American Power to Bear’ on Venezuela

During his first stop on a tour of Latin America, Vice President Mike Pence told an audience in Colombia that Washington was “absolutely determined to bring the full measure of American economic and diplomatic power to bear until we see democracy restored in Venezuela.” Radio Sputnik’s Loud and Clear examined the ramifications of Pence’s tour.

"I'm not going to rule out a military option [to quell unrest in Venezuela]," said US President Donald Trump on Friday. "We have many options for Venezuela, this is our neighbor. We're all over the world and we have troops all over the world in places very, very far away. Venezuela is not very far away, and the people are suffering and dying. We have many options for Venezuela including a possible military option if necessary."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mr. President and Vice President, a word here, please.

Neither Maduro's government, nor its opposition, want US troops on the ground in Venezuela.

And let's face facts here, please; neither of you are that concerned with Venezuela becoming a dictatorship. The US government has been very comfortable, supporting US-centric dictators before, like the Shah of Iran, and Pinochet in Argentina.

But what is of concern to you are those huge oil reserves in Venezuela, which you don't want either Russia or China developing, and which you only want to be sold in US dollars, by a US-centric government: that is the crux of your "concern" over recent developments here, and thinking Americans understand this.

Potential Kurdish State Allegedly Backed by Israel May Upset Region - Politician

Tarek Ahmad, a member of the Syrian Social Nationalist Party (SSNP), stated that an attempt to establish an independent Kurdish state anywhere in the Middle East will really encourage multiple wars.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The creation of an independent Kurdish state in Iraq, allegedly welcomed by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, may lead to instability in the region, with Israel benefiting from the upset, Tarek Ahmad, a member of the Syrian Social Nationalist Party (SSNP), told Sputnik.

"An attempt to establish an independent Kurdish state anywhere in the Middle East will really encourage multiple wars because the question with the Kurds is how to draw the borders of the state. It is very dangerous for the region’s and the world’s stability," Ahmad said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Ah, but that is precisely the outcome Prime Minister Netanyahu wants to see happen; more bloody wars in the middle east, coupled with destabilisation, which insures that a balkanized Iraq never, ever has the standard of living it did under Saddam Hussein.

Tehran Calls on Baghdad, Iraqi Kurds to Discuss Looming Kurdistan Referendum

Tehran supports the negotiations between Iraq and the autonomous region of Iraqi Kurdistan amid the latter's plan to hold an independence referendum in September, Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi said Tuesday.
MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Qassemi said as quoted by the Fars news agency that the internal talks between Erbil and Baghdad should "resolve issues" between the parties in the run up to the referendum on independence.

Netanyahu's Support for Kurds: Israel Looking for a New Ally in the Middle East?
The minister stressed the achievements of the Iraqi people in fighting terror and liberating the territories, which had been occupied by the Daesh terror group (banned in Russia).
The spokesman added that Iran was seeking the best-possible relations with all of Iraq's political, social, ethnic and religious bodies.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unless this is mediated, quickly and intelligently, we could see more bloody civil war in Iraq, in the area the Kurds want to claim as their independent Kurdistan.

Yemeni Army Reported to Have Destroyed Arms Depot in Southern Saudi Arabia

The Yemeni army has used artillery to destroy an ammunition and arms depot belonging to Saudi Arabian forces in the southern Saudi province of Najran, Iranian media reported Tuesday.

The army, supported by militias, continued their operations against Saudi-led forces, shelling their positions in the province, the FARS news agency reported.

The media outlet added that the destruction of the facility in Najran's Taleh district was also confirmed by a military source close to the Yemeni army.
Yemen has been mired in a civil war since 2015. The war is waged between the internationally recognized government of President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi and the Houthi movement backed by army units loyal to former President Ali Abdullah Saleh.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

For all of the Saudi's US-militarily enabled firepower and massive military superiority; for all the assassinations of innocent non-combatants; for all the starvation of Yemenis due to the Saudi closing of ports, so no food can get in, and Yemenis are dying of malnutrition; for all the cholera, which may well have been weaponised, the Saudis do not seem to be winning this fight.
two years on.

It is high time that Prince Salmon cuts his losses, and moves on.

Chinese troops armed with iron bars and rocks brawl with Indian soldiers near border, New Delhi source says

Indian and Chinese soldiers were involved in an altercation in the western Himalayas on Tuesday, Indian sources said, further raising tensions between the two countries which are already locked in a two-month stand-off in another part of the disputed border.

A source in New Delhi, who had been briefed on the military situation on the border, said soldiers foiled a bid by a group of Chinese troops to enter Indian territory in Ladakh, near the Pangong lake.
Some of the Chinese soldiers carried iron rods and stones, and in the melee there were minor injuries on both sides, the source said.
The two sides have frequently accused each other of intrusions into each other’s territories, but clashes are rare. The Indian military declined to comment on the incident.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unless this situation gets mediated, and quickly, India and China could well be slouching toward a shooting war over this disputed territory.

And why should Americans care about this?!?

Because President Obama enhanced the US defence and security posture with India last year.

Obama signs into law bill declaring India a ‘major defense partner’

So should a shooting war ensue between India and China, the US government is on the hook for supporting India, militarily, against China.

CENSORSHIP ALERT: Mozilla planning “kill shot” for entire independent media by blocking all non-approved news in the FireFox browser

In November of 1737, decades before America officially declared its independence from the king of England, a young Benjamin Franklin published an essay in The Pennsylvania Gazette entitled, “On Freedom of Speech and the Press.” In it, Franklin wrote, “Freedom of speech is a principal pillar of a free government; when this support is taken away, the Constitution of a free society is dissolved, and tyranny is erected on its ruins.” Franklin went on to write, “An evil magistrate entrusted with power to punish for words, would be armed with a weapon the most destructive and terrible.”

CONFIRMED: UKRAINE WILL NOT SUE NEW YORK TIMES OVER ALLEGED N. KOREAN DEALS

The State Space Agency of Ukraine (SSAU) will not sue The New York Times newspaper for its article about the possible purchase of Ukrainian-produced missile engines by North Korea, SSAU acting chairman Yuriy Radchenko told reporters on Tuesday.

On Monday, The New York Times published an article, citing classified assessments by US intelligence agencies and a study by Michael Elleman, a senior fellow for missile defense with the International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS) think tank, which suggested that Pyongyang may be using a modified RD-250 high-performance liquid-propellant engine (LPE) for its latest missiles, the kind that used to be developed at Ukraine’s state-owned Yuzhmash and Russia’s Energomash companies. The article cited Elleman as saying that the engines for North Korean missiles likely came from Ukraine, and probably by illicit means.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That's probably a confirmation that the article was, indeed true.

Were it not, Ukraine would have been able to successfully sue the New York Times for a great deal of money, and probably win the suit.

And if so, with "friend"s like Ukraine, which would allow something like this to happen.....

NY GOVERNOR PUSHES 'CHARLOTTESVILLE PROVISIONS' TO MAKE VIOLENT PROTESTS A HATE CRIME

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo wants the state to prosecute violent protests against “protected classes” as a hate crime, suggesting higher criminal penalties. His so-called "Charlottesville Provisions" are a response to the violence in Virginia.
Cuomo has proposed to amend the state’s hate crime laws to include rioting or incitement to riot against protected groups, according to the governor’s office.

New York law protects groups and individuals on the basis of race, national origin, ancestry, gender, religion, age, disability or sexual orientation.

Cuomo also suggested increasing penalties for engaging in a riot against the so-called protected groups.

Some attorneys have already criticized Cuomo’s proposed 'Charlottesville Provisions.'

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Make no mistake, should this legislation be passed, this will be used as a club against even the most peaceful of protests in New York, with the concept of freezing out the peaceful assembly to redress government wrongs, guaranteed in the First Amendment to the Constitution.

PAUL CRAIG ROBERTS ON CHARLOTTESVILLE: "IDENTITY POLITICS ALWAYS LEADS TO VIOLENCE, AMERICANS WON'T BE SPARED"

Listening to NPR this morning confirmed what I already knew. Charlottesville is being turned into another nail in President Trump’s coffin.

NPR had no interest whatsoever in reporting the actual facts about what had occurred in Charlottesville. The several “interviews” with the like-minded were orchestrated to produce the desired propaganda result: It was all Trump’s fault.

It was Trump’s fault for many reasons.

He had stirred up White Supremacists and Nazis by appealing during the presidential election campaign to their supremacist views with his slogan “America first.”

Of course, what Trump means by “America first,” is precisely what the voters understood him to mean—the interest of the broad American public should come before trade deals that serve the interests of other countries and the narrow profit interests of global corporations. However, the NPR propagandists put words in Trump’s mouth and twisted the meaning of the slogan to be “White America Comes First.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I simply no longer listen to NPR, because their alleged "reporting" is biased in the extreme these days, and simply consists of regurgitating codswallop liberals are aching to believe, rather than the truth of any situation.

They have simply become... irrelevant.

DEAR AMERICA: IF YOU WANT TO STOP RACISM, TEAR DOWN THE DRUG WAR—NOT STATUES

Without a doubt, the war on drugs fuels the racist system by targeting minorities and the poor. It serves to increase interactions between police—who are often caught joining the force to act out their racist desires—and the citizens.

The drug war, from the police departments to the court systems, unequivocally targets and punishes minorities harder for the same victimless crimes for which their white counterparts receive slaps on the wrist.

As TFTP reported last year, a scathing report in Harper’s Magazine, written by Dan Baum set the record straight and relieved all doubt over the intentions of the drug war. John Daniel Ehrlichman, counsel and domestic policy chief to President Richard Nixon, came clean on the real reason behind the war on drugs — to criminalize blacks and hippies.

According to Baum, he tracked down Ehrlichman in 1994 at his engineering firm in Atlanta, Georgia.

STUDY SUGGESTS DRUGGING UP GERMANS TO ACCEPT MORE MIGRANTS

Drugging up Germans with oxytocin will help make them “friendlier” to migrants and more susceptible to open borders, a study suggested.

Oxytocin, known as the “cuddle hormone” due to its generosity effects on humans, was suggested as part of a “treatment” for Germans who oppose EU migrant quotas, according to University of Bonn researchers.

“It appears that pairing oxytocin with a social norm can help counter the effects of xenophobia by enhancing altruistic behavior toward refugees,” the study stated.

The leader researcher, Prof. Rene Hurlemann, claimed that “given the right circumstances, oxytocin may help promote the acceptance and integration of migrants into Western cultures.”

In other words, let’s just drug Germans into accepting a globalist agenda.

The study asked 100 native Germans their opinions on migrants, then gave half of them a dose of oxytocin while the other half received a placebo.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Are you flipping kidding me?!?

No.

What has to happen here is a mandate by the German people that no more open borders shall exist; every single immigrant MUST be housed by the politicians who proposed this open borders policy, including Angela Merkel, and all the rest need to be housed on whatever lands George Soros owns in Germany.

THAT should sort the problem, within a couple of months!!!

WHY WE'RE DOOMED: OUR ECONOMY'S TOXIC INEQUALITY

Anyone who thinks our toxic financial system is stable is delusional.

Why are we doomed? Those consuming over-amped "news" feeds may be tempted to answer the culture wars, nuclear war with North Korea or the Trump Presidency.

The one guaranteed source of doom is our broken financial system, which is visible in this chart of income inequality from the New York Times: Our Broken Economy, in One Simple Chart.

While the essay's title is our broken economy, the source of this toxic concentration of income, wealth and power in the top 1/10th of 1% is more specifically our broken financial system.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One of the smartest things you can do right now, is, to the best you are able, is to get out of credit card debt as quickly as is humanly possible; rates will inevitably rise, keeping you in debtor's prison for as long as you live, if you do not do this.

Baltimore: More Videos Released Showing Police Officers “Manufacturing Evidence”

The new video was taken during a traffic stop last November and made public early this month. Shamere Collins, 35, was pulled over after a police officer allegedly witnessed her passenger conduct a drug deal. In the video, several officers are shown to be searching the front driver’s side of Collins’ car, then the camera goes off, then on again, without explanation.

Iran Counters US Sanctions With New War Spending, Warships to Atlantic Ocean

Iranian leaders are responding to the latest round of sanctions signed by US President Donald Trump with a two-pronged approach: increased defense and intelligence spending by roughly $600-800 million and marshaling military vessels to the Atlantic Ocean.

"No military official in the world thought that we can go round Africa to the Atlantic Ocean through the Suez Canal but we did it as we had declared that we would go to the Atlantic and its western waters,” Iranian Rear Adm. Habibollah Sayyari said over the weekend, according to local media sources.

"We moved into the Atlantic and will go to its Western waters in the near future," Sayyari added. In April, Sayyari reportedly said, "redeployment in the Atlantic Ocean, intelligence superiority, development of communications, progress in the development of the Makran coast and building new vessels are among the Navy’s plans this year."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Iranian President Rouhani, a word, please: Iran's ditching the P5+1 Agreement is precisely what these sanctions are engineered to get Iran to do; please don't fall for it.

You have to know by now that the US will use such a withdrawal as the "justification" for an attack against you, and any escalation of threats to resume to your nuclear weapons program will simply accelerate US hostilities against you.

Sir, as a 68 year old thinking American, the imposition of the Shah in 53 wasn't my doing; I was all of 4 years old at the time.

So I am asking you and the Iranian Majlis not to do something rash which will cause the US government to declare war against you.

And please understand this; American citizens have absolutely no control over the actions of the American deep state, which has its own agendas, and those agendas are frequently inimical to those of the American people.

Most thinking Americans do not want to see war against Iran; unfortunately, this is what Israeli Premiere Netanyahu is constantly browbeating President Trump to do for him (but only at the costs of American blood and American money).

President Trump may well not have adequate information on Iran, because much of it is being "filtered" by advisors who are warmongers.

Criminal charges sought for protesters who toppled Confederate statue in North Carolina

What kind of a Cop stands by and lets people destroy public or private property because they believe these people have a constitutional right to destroy!
UTTER MADNESS!

When protesters, angry over the deadly incidents in Virginia this weekend, decided to take down a nearly century-old statue of a Confederate soldier in North Carolina on Monday, law enforcement stood back and watched.

At no time did officers with the Durham Police Department or deputies with the Durham County Sheriff’s Office intervene as activists brought a ladder up to the statue and used a rope to pull it down, according to multiple media reports.

No one was arrested Monday, however, a day later, Durham County Sheriff Mike Andrews announced investigators were working to identify the protesters and planned to bring criminal charges against them.

Silicon Valley Tightens Its Grip On Free Speech

In a chilling oped published in The New York Times on July 14, Lisa Feldman Barrett, a professor of psychology at Northeastern University, argued that so-called “hate speech” is the same thing as physical violence because it may possibly cause emotionally fragile individuals stress — and should be made illegal.

Thankfully, the First Amendment prohibits the federal government from following such advice, but online companies are taking it upon themselves to stamp-out so-called “hate speech,” strangling free speech and the free exchange of ideas in the process.

A number of troubling actions by internet companies — Google most prominent among them — are making it increasingly clear that some in Silicon Valley have proclaimed themselves defenders of the progressive, politically correct faith, and that those firms will silence any and all heretics who challenge those beliefs.

Official says Israeli delegation will try to persuade White House that cease-fire deal should be amended to make sure Iranian forces, Hezbollah and Shi’ite militias are kept out of Syria

A delegation of Israeli defense officials will visit Washington later this week for talks with senior White House and American defense officials. Haaretz has learned that the delegation will be headed by Mossad chief Yossi Cohen, and he will be joined by the head of the Israel Defense Forces Military Intelligence, Maj. Gen. Herzl Halevi, as well as the head of the Defense Ministry's political-security department, Zohar Palti.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mossad Chief Cohen, Maj. Gen. Herzl Halevi; and Zohar Palti, a word, please: your "defense interests" for Israel have been assured by the United States of America for generations, culminating in the defense aid package given to you by President Obama, to the tune of 38 billion dollars, over the course of a decade.

Obama hands Israel the largest military aid deal in history.

This was again topped by President Trump's aid over concerns of his Saudi weapons deal in May:

Both Presidents Obama and Trump have done this, knowing it is a violation of the Symington Amendment and the Glenn Act, which prohibits any financial aid to any country which refuses to sign the NNPT, and does not allow its nuclear weapons to be inspected: Israel fails, miserably, on both counts, but still, always gets the money it wants, while homeless American Vets sleep in our streets, and kids living in extreme poverty are horrifically food-insecure.

Israel has not been invited to the discussion between the US and Russia about the issue of peace in Syria; Russia was invited by the Syrian government to rid it of all jihadists; Israel and the United States were not.

Israel's greatest problem, is its pathological inability to get along with its regional neighbors in an intelligent, and cohesive manner; therefore, it is always demanding that "Daddy Warbucks" (read: the Unhinged, Surveilled States of America") get it out of its current self-imposed dilemma, whether it is punching up a cease fire agreement, in this case, or anything else, like "regime changing Tehran, but only with American blood and American money.

I frankly hope that the meeting goes absolutely nowhere; it may cause Israel to "play better with others" in the region. And please note: this delegation is not going to Moscow to attempt to get what it wants, from the Syrian cease fire.

Israel delays half of Gazans seeking to leave Strip for medical care, WHO says: All those who seek permission are patients whom the Palestinians have allowed to leave Gaza and for whom they’ve committed to pay

The World Health Organization has revealed that Israel delayed about half of those seeking to exit the Gaza Strip to be treated in Israeli hospitals in May, with similar statistics for the preceding months.

According to the WHO examination, of the 2,282 requests submitted to the Coordination and Liaison Administration to the Gaza Strip in May, 47.2 percent were approved, 2.1 percent were refused, while 50.7 percent were held up with no explanation, causing the patients to miss their appointments for examinations or treatments. Often these are people who had previously received exit permits for treatment.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This refusal to allow sick Gazans to access care is one of the multi-pronged Israeli "final solutions" to the "Palestinian question: assassination by denial of medical care.

LEAKED EMAILS: SAUDI POWER BEHIND THE THRONE “WANTS OUT OF YEMEN”

THE KEY SAUDI official in charge of the catastrophic ongoing war in Yemen wants it to stop, he told two influential foreign policy figures in Washington this spring.

Mohammed bin Salman, a member of the Saudi royal family who effectively rules the country, made the comments to Martin Indyk and Stephen Hadley. Indyk was a high-level diplomat during both the Clinton and Obama administrations and Hadley a top adviser to former President George W. Bush.

Indyk relayed the conversation to Yousef Al Otaiba, the United Arab Emirates ambassador to the United States, and the man most responsible for aiding bin Salman’s rise in Washington.

“I think MBS is far more pragmatic than what we hear in saudi public positions,” Otaiba wrote to Indyk on the morning of April 20.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Pence: Failed State Venezuela a Threat to US: Says Venezuela Is 'Collapsing Into Dictatorship''

Speaking to reporters during a visit to Colombia, Vice President Mike Pence warned that Venezuela is “collapsing into dictatorship,” and that the country becoming a “failed state” would make it a threat to the security and prosperity of the United States.

Pence was a bit vague on what the US is actually going to do about it, as opposed to President Trump’s threats to attack the country militarily, rather saying the US will use all of its economic and diplomatic power to ensure democracy is restored in Venezuela.

Pence dodged questions about whether this necessarily meant regime change, but other administration officials have made clear they oppose the Maduro government in general, and its recent moves to increase the power of the ruling Socialist Party in particular.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mr. Vice-President, a word, please: much of this "failed state" status in Venezuela is a direct result of United States' economic war engineered against it.

Unless you have a bad case of SMD (selective memory disorder), you will remember that, upon the prodding of the United States, Saudi Arabia lowered its oil price to punish Russia economically.

Want to hurt Russia?!/ Lower the price of oil!

But this oil price reduction not only hurt Russia economically; it crushed the Venezuelan economy as well:

Falling crude oil prices crush Venezuela's ailing economy

Then, President Obama created a series of sanctions against Venezuela:

President Obama slaps sanctions on Venezuela

In 2017, President Trump placed sanctions against Venezuela:

President Trump Sanctions Venezuela

Vice-President Pence, this collective DC upset with Maduro is less about his dictatorship in Venezuela, as the US government has supported many US-centric dictators throughout history, like Pinochet in Argentina, or the Shah in Iran; that is not the issue here.

The issues, sir - and you know this to be true- are about Venezuela's huge oil reserves; establishing a US-centric government to insure that the oil is not sold to Russia or China, nor that they get any hand in its production; and insuring that Venezuela's oil is only sold for the US dollar; that's it, in a nutshell.

US, China, Koreas Revisit Diplomacy After Soaring Tensions

A flurry of threats last week had the whole region fearing a new Korean War was about to break out, but Monday gave way to at least a bit of an attempt by everyone involved to revisit the possibility of diplomacy.

That’s not to say that diplomacy is any more imminent this week than war was last week, but as North Korea put its Guam missile launches on hold, US officials against made it very clear they were at least open o a resolution that didn’t involve nuclear war.

North Korea’s Kim Jong-un said that US should show itself to be committed to an alternative to the conflict, while US officials continued to reiterate how ready they were for war. Either way, both sides agree it was entirely the other side’s fault, and that it’s entirely up to the other side to stop the provocations.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

However this decision came down from Kim Jung Un to not send his missiles flying in a Guam-centric direction, the world is, collectively, breathing a sign of relief this morning.

The question is, what will the US, China, North and South Korea do now?!?

Will they take advantage of the slight ratcheting down of tensions in order to get to the conference table, and hammer out a true peace deal with which to replace the Armistice, in return for Kim Jung Un abandoning his nuclear program, and let North Korea trade, unimpeded by sanctions?!?

In the Chinese language, the ideogram for "Crisis" and "Opportunity" are one in the same; let us hope the US government takes great advantage of this slight lessening of tensions here.

WIKILEAKS: RIYADH FLIRTS WITH TEL AVIV THROUGH NORMALIZATION

A “highly classified” press release by the Saudi Ministry of Foreign Affairs, which was published by WikiLeaks, reveals the level of rapprochement between Riyadh and Tel Aviv. Saudi Arabia initiated discussions on the issue of normalization with Israel and the 2002 Saudi peace initiative that was adopted by the Arab League at the Beirut Summit in the same year.

This was followed by a media propaganda in 2006, the year in which influential people in Saudi Arabia started speaking out that Israel was no longer among the enemies of the United States, but was the closest to an unofficial ally.

This discourse has developed and turned into Saudi initiatives to establish ties between the two countries in 2008. Since that date, the effectiveness of the ties between Tel Aviv and Riyadh and the support of the rapprochement between the two are clearly noticed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

No where, in bilateral relations in the Middle East, can one see a better personification of the Arabic phrase: "The enemy of my enemy (in this case, Iran) is my friend!"
