Thanks Sanctions! Russian Food Security at Record Level Thanks to Restrictions

The share of imports in the Russian retail sector dropped to 36% in the first quarter of 2017, hitting lows unseen since 2008, when measurement of the indicator first started. Food imports have dropped even further, down from 34% in 2014, to 24% in 2017, according to the Russian Ministry of Industry and Trade.
Fresh figures from the Russian state statistics agency Rosstat show that the share of imports in Russian retail trade have dropped steadily over a three year period, from 43% in Q1 2014, to 41% in Q1 2015, to 38% in Q1 2016, to 36% in Q1 2017. The agency says the indicator is at its lowest level since 2008, when measurement first began.

Speaking to Russia's Izvestia newspaper, the press service of the Ministry of Industry and Trade explained that a number of factors account for the decrease in the share of imports. The main factor, according to the Ministry, is the drop in food imports, where imports account for just 23% of the total.

White House Looks at Afghanistan Pullout as an Option

After months of the Pentagon failing to sell a concrete plan of escalation to the White House, officials now say that the administration is considering getting back on track with a drawdown headed for a full pullout from the country after 16 years.

This is happening for the same reason the Pentagon hasn’t been able to sell the escalations, that a number of officials are unconvinced that the escalation is going to accomplish anything, and that they don’t think there’s a clear strategy for victory.

The Pentagon was more or less uniform in arguing escalations, albeit of varying sizes, and are said to be objecting to the proposed pullout as a “minority viewpoint,” warning that it does not meet the goals of the conflict.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The withdrawal of US and NATO troops, as quickly as is safely possible, is the only sane option left to the US government, coupled with negotiating with whatever "government" is left standing in Kabul for the oil pipelines and mineral rights.

A third of Britons want former Prime Minister Tony Blair to be tried over his decision to invade Iraq alongside the US back in 2003.

According to the latest YouGov poll, 33 percent of respondents said the former Labour leader “knowingly misled Parliament and the public” and should therefore be prosecuted as a “war criminal.”

The poll comes just after a High Court ruling blocked an Iraqi general’s bid to prosecute Blair over his decision to intervene in Iraq.

Abdul Wahed Shannan Al Rabbat sought a private prosecution against Blair, who he accused of committing a “crime of aggression.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It was a bloody shame that Mr. Al Rabbat, who attempted to get Tony Blair prosecuted for a crime of "aggression", which does not exist in either British or Welch law, was not better schooled in British jurisprudence before he brought the lawsuit forward, and did not come after Blair with a charge which was prosecutible under British law.

We are living in the greatest debt bubble in the history of the world. In 1980, total government and personal debt in the United States was just over the 3 trillion dollar mark, but today it has surpassed 41 trillion dollars. That means that it has increased by almost 14 times since Ronald Reagan was first elected president. I am searching for words to describe how completely and utterly insane this is, but I am coming up empty. We are slowly but surely committing national suicide, and yet most Americans don’t even understand what is happening.

According to 720 Global, total government debt plus total personal debt in the United States was just over 3 trillion dollars in 1980. That broke down to $38,552 per household, and that figure represented 79 percent of median household income at the time.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I read, recently, that the average household is over $16,000.00 in personal debt.

One of the smartest things all of us can do right now, is to get personal debt down as low as humanly possible, because we know that it is only a matter of time before the Fed raises the interest rates again, which affects all personal credit in this country.

The global corporatist economy works differently from business transactions at your neighborhood convenience store. Ostensibly, the International Monetary Fund was set up to allow the G20 nations to umpire the ground rules to play nice in macro trade. Platitudes about promoting job growth or third world development are the realm of public relations for the central banks. The impact of the IMF on virtually all countries, vividly seen in every crisis whether real or contrived, always has a political objective that underpins the economic functions. As confidence in national currencies falter, the big sugar daddy loves to intervene, provided they pull the strings.

The use of SDRs is one tool used to paper over insolvency. Investopedia explains 'Special Drawing Rights - SDR' in the following manner.

In using the SDRs, the IMF has only one profitability about which it is concerned; its own.

THE GCSB lost control of its surveillance technology and wasn’t aware its systems continued spying on Kim Dotcom, according to new documents from the spy bureau.

It claimed that it turned off all surveillance systems targeting Dotcom and others but found out more than a year later that surveillance continued without its knowledge.

The details in the documents have led Dotcom to state that there is now evidence the United States’ National Security Agency was carrying out surveillance on him.

Dotcom, who should have been protected from GCSB surveillance as a New Zealand resident, said the GCSB did not know because its equipment was being used by the NSA, which was “directly involved”.

The Arctic Could Be the Next South China Sea, Says Coast Guard Commandant

Rich with energy resources, minerals and strategic positioning, the warming Arctic is ripe for territorial disputes, Adm. Zukunft warns.

No one’s creating and arming islands in the Arctic today, but that doesn’t mean territorial disputes couldn’t soon heat up in those waters, the commandant of the U.S. Coast Guard warned today.

“As I look at what is playing out in the Arctic, it looks eerily familiar to what we’re seeing in the East and South China Sea,” Adm. Paul Zukunft said Tuesday at an event at the Center for Strategic and International Studies.

That means first, audacious territorial claims, Zukunft said: “Russia has claimed most of the Arctic Ocean, all the way up to the North Pole and as a signatory of the Law of the Sea Convention has filed this claim.”

Sandy Hook shooting mothers’ average age giving birth = 36 years old. Odds of 20 such elderly mothers in one group = 109,418,989,131,512,370,000 to 1 (109 quintillion, 418 quadrillion, 989 trillion, 131 billion, 512 million, 370 thousand to 1)

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

KateSlate11’s strong catch in 3-minutes:

The alleged Sandy Hook shooting of December 2012 included 20 1st grade children with stated ages of 6 and 7 years old (only four at age seven). From public information,* the average age of those mothers in 2012 is 42.25; meaning their average age giving birth is 36. Some 1st grade students’ mothers will be 36 or older, but what are the odds of a random group of 20 such mothers averaging 36 years of age?

What are the odds?

According to the CDC, the percentage of US mothers giving their first birth at age 35 or older for 2006 is ~8%; about 1 in every 12. Pew Research Center reports that American mothers’ age 35 or older for any birth is 14%. Therefore, let’s estimate the percentage of 1st grade students’ mothers ages being 36 or older at 11%: about 1 in every 9. Age 36 is nine years above CDC average of age 27 for mothers with any number of children giving birth in 2006.

Here’s Why It Doesn’t Matter If North Korea Is Actually a Nuclear Threat

Those who believe that our own government is perfectly willing to commit an atrocity and then blame it on someone else tend to deny threats when they're brought up consistently by the media. Let's take the North Korea nuclear menace, for example.

I've been writing about the rising threat from North Korea for a long time and each time I publish a piece about their missile capability or some outrageous offense, it never fails that someone pops up and says, "North Korea doesn't matter. The government is just making them the bad guy so the US can take military action and the people will support it."

But in truth, that's the part that doesn't matter if you are a firm believer in false flags.

When you see that bright flash of light followed by a mushroom cloud on the horizon, will knowing the source of that cloud be the thing that saves your life or will knowing the steps to take to protect yourself be the deciding factor of whether you live or die?

The priority of this U.S. oil company to topple Venezuela is geopolitical and geo-economic, as a fundamental pillar of a new political, economic and financial configuration of the continent (with Russia and China as alternative strategic partners), which poses a threat to the strategic advantages and the almost absolute control of the energy resources of the region that these corporations boasted throughout the 20th century. Securing that source of supply not only enabled it to carry out its arms race and military campaigns in the Middle East, but to maintain a global superpower status which is challenged today by emerging rivals.

In the demarcation reinforced by this second round of contracts in the Liza-1 and Liza-2 fields, there is an implicit interest in appropriating an energy corridor as an Exxon exclusive exploitation zone that runs from the Orinoco Oil Belt, through the Essequibo, reaching the mouth of its Atlantic front.

Psychologist James Mitchell is the self-described "architect" of the CIA's torture program (a consulting gig that netted him a cool $80m at taxpayer expense), along with his partner John "Bruce" Jessen -- they're the pair who oversaw black-site torture programs that killed and maimed people who'd been convicted of no crime by any court, anywhere in the world.

Some of the survivors of this torture -- and the families of those murdered by the CIA torturers -- are seeking civil justice from Mitchell and Jessen, with the help of the ACLU.

Now a judge has ruled that a jury will decide whether the torture architects can be sued for their role in the torture and killing, including the death of Gul Rahman, who died of hypothermia while in chains in a cell, in a "starved, sleepless and freezing" state due to the torture he was subjected to.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would like to hope that the jury agrees that they should be tried for their war crimes, and get convicted.

Torture should never be something that agents of the US government do, ever; and I hope that all of their techniques get revealed to the general public, to make sure that this never happens again.

There was an interrogator during World War II who was remembered, very fondly, for the way he used kindness and empathy in his interrogations of Brits and our US military. The guy's name was Hanns Scharff.

How he did what he did should be respected - and copied.

As the Syrian military moves farther east and clinches yet more territory from America’s terrorists, the United States establishment is now moving to escalate its provocations in another part of the world – Ukraine. Of course, despite the fact that Russia has launched a massive military operation to protect its strategic interests in Syria, the U.S. terror establishment is attempting to provide more arms and equipment to fascists in Ukraine in a clear effort to push NATO literally up to the Russian border.

It is currently being reported by numerous corporate outlets such as The New York Times that both the Pentagon and the State Department are proposing a plan to the White House that would see the U.S. supply Ukraine with anti-tank missiles and other arms. The transfer would also include antiaircraft systems described as “defensive weaponry.”

Senator Graham: Trump Is Prepared To Strike; "There Is A Military Option To Destroy North Korea"

Appearing on the Today Show earlier this morning, Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said that President Trump has indicated to him that the administration is prepared to strike North Korea to prevent an attack against the U.S. Pushed on by Matt Lauer on whether a viable military option exists in the region, Graham responded: "They're wrong. There is a military option to destroy North Korea's program and North Korea itself."

"They're wrong. There is a military option to destroy North Korea's program and North Korea itself. If there's going to be a war to stop him [Kim Jong Un], it will be over there. If thousands die, they're going to die over there, they're not going to die here and he's [Trump] told me that to my face."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would like to hope that Senator Graham is not putting words into the President's mouth (as politicians are prone to do).

But if, in fact, he is being utterly truthful, I hope we have a peaceful, fully-vetted negotiating process potentially in place, as is the military option.

Lawsuit Alleges Fox News And Trump Collaborated To Create Fake Story About Seth Rich Killing

Malia Zimmerman, a Fox News reporter, was accused of fabricating two quotes for a story that connected now-deceased DNC staffer Seth Rich to Wikileaks in a lawsuit filed Tuesday by Washington police detective Rod Wheeler, the private investigator hired by Rich's family and himself a longtime Fox News commentator. The lawsuit, which accused Zimmerman and Trump supporter, Ed Butowsky, of inventing a story to "shift the blame" away from Russia's hacking of the 2016 election, also claims that President Trump collaborated with Fox News and was allowed to review a draft of the story before it was published.

The plaintiff claims that the motive behind the report was "to shift the blame from Russia and help put to bed speculation that President Trump colluded with Russia in an attempt to influence the outcome of the Presidential election." Wheeler also said that the fabricated quotes attributed to him were meant to back up the network’s false thesis, and amount to defamation.

US Construction Spending Just Collapsed

Headline growth in US construction spending collapsed in July to just 1.6% YoY - the weakest since 2011.

As Reuters reports, U.S. construction spending unexpectedly fell in June as investment in public projects recorded its biggest drop since March 2002. The Commerce Department said on Tuesday that construction spending tumbled 1.3 percent to $1.21 trillion - the lowest level since September 2016 - drastically missing economists' estimates of a 0.4% increase.

This downside surprise suggests notable downside revisions to Q2 GDP (from its 2.6% annualized level).

However, most ironic in the government's report was, amid The White House constant chatter of the need for infrastructure spending in America, Federal government construction spending crashed 9.5% - the largest drop since December 2010.

A Quarter Trillion Dollars In US Savings Was Just "Wiped Away"

As part of its historical revision to GDP, the BEA also had to adjust personal income and spending, with the full results released in today's July report. What it revealed was striking: over the revised period, disposable personal income for US household was slashed cumulatively by over $120 billion to just under $14.4 trillion, while spending was revised higher by $105 billion, to just above $13.8 trillion. There were two immediate consequences of this result.

First, as the following table shows, while government pay has remained roughly flat over the past 3 years, growing in the mid-2% to mid 3% range, wages and salaries for private workers have been steadily declining as the blue line below shows, and after hitting a 4% Y/Y growth in February, wage growth has slumped to just 2.5% in June, the lowest since January 2014 when excluding the one-time sharp swoon observed at the end of 2016.

Congressional Investigation Into Wasserman Schultz IT Scandal Moves Forward

Congress is advancing an investigation into a growing scandal surrounding IT staffers working for Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D., Fla.), who are accused of stealing sensitive computer equipment from House lawmakers' offices, according to senior congressional sources who told the Washington Free Beacon the Democratic leader's refusal to answer questions could "merit resignation."

Congressional leaders have now requested a formal briefing by Capitol Police into its investigation of several Pakistani House IT staffers who are accused of stealing sensitive computer equipment and of illegally penetrating congressional networks.

Germany Tells EU to Prepare Countermeasures Against US Sanctions

The German government has again weighed in with strong criticism of the latest US sanctions bill.

The latest comments have come from German Economics Minister Brigitte Zypries, who is reported by Reuters to have said the following

We consider this as being against international law, plain and simple. Of course we don’t want a trade war. But it is important the European Commission now looks into countermeasures.

(bold italics added)

These are exceptionally strong words coming from the Economics Minister of the country which is the US’s most important ally.

They also underscore the folly of the latest sanctions bill. In saying that the proposed sanctions go against international law Germany is now publicly contesting the US doctrine of the universal worldwide applicability of US law.

Biological Warfare: US & Saudis Use Cholera to Kill Yemenis

Chemical/biological warfare is the term used to describe the use of chemical or biological agents as weapons to injure or kill humans, livestock, or plants. Chemical weapons are devices that use chemicals to inflict death or injury; biological weapons use pathogens or organisms that cause disease. Pathogens include bacteria, viruses, fungi, and toxins (poisons produced by animals or plants). – Library of Congress, Science Reference Services

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This morally sickens and angers me no end.

I wish Mike and I could move to a civilized country where the government doesn't do such things; but we are both too broke, and too old to make that happen.

At 68, I am a citizen of a country colluding in war crimes in the Middle East and beyond, and collaborating with a country (Saudi Arabia) with a human rights record which would make Attila the Hun seem downright compassionate!

IF I can do nothing else, I will continue to be a Christian Witness to this genocide, and hopefully, get people talking about it, until the noise of that conversation becomes a (peaceful, logical) crescendo which can be heard all the way to the White House, State Department, and Pentagon.

Iraq War: Bid to prosecute Tony Blair rejected by High Court

Former Iraqi general Abdul Wahed Shannan Al Rabbat alleged the former prime minister committed "the crime of aggression" by invading Iraq in 2003.
No such crime exists in England and Wales and the court ruled there was "no prospect" of the case succeeding.

The general had wanted to prosecute Mr Blair, ex-Foreign Secretary Jack Straw, and ex-Attorney General Lord Goldsmith.

Last year, Westminster Magistrates' Court had turned down Mr Al Rabbat's bid to bring private prosecution.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mr. Al Rabbat should have been better schooled in British law, so that he could bring Tony Blair to the docket on a chargeable offence, under British Law; so unfortunately, because Mr. Al Rabbat did not do that, Phony Tony Blair gets to slip away from the war crimes charges he should be facing yet again.

Iran won’t give Trump a gift by exiting nuclear deal: Zarif

Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has said that Iran will not give U.S. President Donald Trump a “gift” by exiting the nuclear agreement.

Exiting the 2015 nuclear deal, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, is always on the table, however Iran will not take such move when the “main and official parts of the JCPOA are still working”, Zarif said in an interview with the Iran newspaper published on Sunday.

The UN Security Council’s resolution has recognized Iran’s right to exit the JCPOA, because the deal was wrote based on “mutual distrust”, he added.

However, the chief diplomat, said Iran should decide whether remaining in the deal is beneficial or not.

He noted that the European countries seek to remain in the deal and gain its benefits and do not want the U.S. decide for them.

Europeans have adopted positive approach toward the pact during the past months and Iran’s decision depends highly on the European countries’ “behavior”, Zarif remarked.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Crackdown aims to 'silence' Palestinian journalists

Earlier this month, Jihad Barakat, a journalist with Palestine Today TV, was on his way from the northern West Bank city of Nablus to a village in the Tulkarem area to visit family, when he noticed something unusual at an Israeli military checkpoint.

In contravention of protocol, Israeli soldiers were searching the convoy of Palestinian Authority (PA) Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah. Barakat took out his phone and documented the incident; hours later, he was detained by Palestinian security forces.

Media rights activists and journalists quickly took to social media to voice frustration and demand that Barakat be released. A hashtag "Where is Jihad" was assigned to social media posts condemning his detention, and a protest was held by journalists in front of the prime minister's office. The local journalists' union was contacted to act on his behalf.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF the PA and Israeli politicians don't like the unfavorable coverage they believe they are getting from Palestinian news outlets, I have a terrific idea; just please stop the behaviour which is leading to such negative coverage!!

You're welcome!! :-)

North Korea or Iran… Where Will President Trump Attack First?

One press report from an unnamed Pentagon source claimed that President Trump “is to order a military strike against North Korea within a year,” after this weekend’s North Korean test of a longer-range missile.

Iran, which along with North Korea and Russia will face new sanctions imposed by Congress and expected to be signed into law by Trump, is also in President Trump’s crosshairs. He was reportedly furious over his Secretary of State Rex Tillerson’s certifying that Iran was in compliance with the nuclear deal – even though Iran was in compliance – and he seems determined to push a confrontation.

So whom will Trump attack first? Let’s hope nobody, but with continuing pressure from both Democrats and Republicans over the unproven “Russiagate” allegations, it increasingly looks like he will seek relief by starting a “nice little war.” If he does so, however, his presidency will likely be over and he may end up blundering into a much bigger war in the process.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If President Trump order attacks on North Korea, North Korea could plead for military aid from China, and we could conceivably be at war with China.

If President Trump orders attacks on Iran, Iran could conceivably plead for military aid from Russia, and we could conceivably be at war with Russia.

I am looking at a Faux news crawl, and Rex Tillerson is saying that we would be open to talking with North Korea; but I have to wonder what the quid pro quo will be; he is also saying that the US government doesn't want to send the military to North Korea, or create regime change there.

I don't know how disingenuous those statements may be, but the mere fact that he is talking.... about talking to North Korea gives me some hope.

‘Furious’ US Complains of Russian ‘Lockout’ at Site

After months of imposing new sanctions against Russia, US diplomats reacted with shock and outrage after Russia imposed retaliatory sanctions against them over the weekend, calling the retaliation “uncalled for”
and threatening further retaliation to that.

Russia announced Friday that the US Embassy in Moscow will be limited to 455 employees in the future, and that they will be seizing a pair of properties owned by the embassy. These echo seizures and expulsions the US did to Russia back in December.

Though the embassy properties aren’t to be seized until September 1, the US Embassy claimed that Russia had locked them out of the dacha along the Moscow River today.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, the sanctions against Russia weren't supposed to have consequences?!?

Forgive me, but what in the name of heaven was Congress thinking, when they passes these sanctions against Russia (for things it did not do, like allegedly "annexing" Crimea)?!?

North Korea ICBM Failed, But US Still Hypes Threat

US officials have responded to last week’s North Korea ICBM test by hyping up the growing “threat” posed by the nation’s missile program, claiming that North Korea now has the capability of hitting “most” of the United States with a missile.

This narrative plays well into the administration’s eagerness to keep escalating threats and sanctions, but it’s not true. As with the previous “successful” ICBM test, this most recent one wasn’t really a success, and once again demonstrated North Korea’s limitations on such missiles.

In reality, experts say the video footage of the ICBM shows that it broke up upon re-entry, and hit the sea in pieces. Lack of re-entry capability, along with lack of advanced guidance technology, were both cited as problems with the previous test as well.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This means that there is every good reason to sit down an negotiate a peace deal with Pyongyang before it really does develop a steerable, nuclear weapon.

After months of the Pentagon failing to sell a concrete plan of escalation to the White House, officials now say that the administration is considering getting back on track with a drawdown headed for a full pullout from the country after 16 years.

UPDATE: Not Being Stupid Is ‘Cognitive Privilege’ Now, Which Is Just Like White Privilege

The University of Iowa’s student newspaper has announced the discovery of a special privilege which intelligent people acquire as an accident of birth. This new privilege — called “cognitive privilege” — functions in essentially the same way as white privilege.

The Daily Iowan revealed the discovery of this new privilege earlier this week.

Garden-variety white privilege “is an important topic that deserves a public discussion,” the op-ed on “cognitive privilege” explains, but it is also “prudent to at least mention the wider concept contained therein: that of privilege itself.” (RELATED: Smoking Marijuana And Not Getting Killed By Cops Is WHITE PRIVILEGE Now)

Privilege in general is “the receipt of certain benefits wholly through accident of birth and it is “undeniable that privilege itself is a reality,” the student newspaper explains.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Are you flipping kidding me?!?

And hasn't "Common Core" been dumbing our kids down so brilliantly, as to nearly prevent this from happening?!?

Being bright should not be considered any kind of privilege; it should be considered both a gift, and a motivation, for making the best life for yourself you possibly can, because you are making good choices that will serve you well later in life.

Forbes Says Self-Reliant Homesteaders Are “Delusional” and “Mooching” Off “Civil Society”

It’s always interesting reading when someone smug and sanctimonious writes a clueless diatribe about another group of people being smug and sanctimonious. So when I saw that an economist for Moody’s and Forbes had written an op-ed calling self-reliant homesteaders “delusional,” I knew I’d be in for some misinformed hilarity.

The article, entitled, “Dear Homesteaders, Self-Reliance Is a Delusion” was published a couple of days ago on the Forbes website. You’ll be forewarned that the article won’t be deep in the first paragraph, when the author presents his claim to knowledge about self-reliant living comes from the fact that he is “a big fan of shows about doomsday preppers, homesteaders, survivalists, generally people who live off the grid.”

And the well-informed opinion of this arbiter of self-reliance?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Before writing this codswallop, I sincerely wish that the man had interviewed homesteaders about what they are doing with regard to medical challenges, etc., to educate himself about what really goes on here.

Attempting to get his answers from watching television, is one of the worst ways possible to become knowledgeable about ANYTHING!!

CNN’s Zakaria: Trump Victory a ‘Rebellion’ Against ‘Overeducated’ Elites Like Us, Hillary Clinton

CNN’s Fareed Zakaria said on Monday that President Donald Trump’s election victory was a “class rebellion” against overeducated elites like himself, Hillary Clinton, and some of his CNN colleagues.

“The election of Donald Trump is really a kind of a class rebellion against people like us, educated professionals who live in cities who have cosmopolitan views about a lot of things,” Zakaria said on the network’s New Day program. “I think there’s a whole part of America that’s sick and tired of being told what to do by this overeducated professional elite that Hillary Clinton in many ways perfectly represented, and that’s why they’re sticking with him.”

Did Hillary Scapegoat Russia to Save Her Campaign?

The “Russia hacking” flap has nothing to do with Russia and nothing to do with hacking. The story is basically a DNC invention that was concocted to mitigate the political fallout from the nearly 50,000 emails that WikiLeaks planned to publish on July 22, 2016, just 3 days before the Democratic National Convention. That’s what this is really all about. Russia didn’t hack anything, it’s a big diversion that was conjured up on-the-fly to keep Hillary’s bandwagon from going down in flames.

WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — The arms, which are characterized as defensive, are apparently meant to deter aggressive actions by Russia in the country, the Wall Street Journal reported, citing American military officials and diplomats.

US Defense Secretary James Mattis supports the plan, the paper reported, citing US officials.

A senior White House official told the newspaper that a decision has not yet been made on the arms proposal.

A violent military conflict in Ukraine started in 2014 after the residents of the eastern Donbas region refused to recognize the new Ukrainian government that came to power in what they perceived to be a coup.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US was thoroughly complicit in that coup in 2014; President Obama admitted it.

President Obama admitted that the US government was complicit in the Ukrainian riots which unseated Yanukovich in 2014

And if the Trump administration doesn't believe that getting these offensive arms to the Ukrainian government will not be perceived by Moscow as tantamount to an act of war, they had better darn well think again.

My point here is that operational plans to decapitate North Korean nuclear and ICBM capabilities exist and are constantly being revised and refined in light of new intelligence. It’s not the planners’ job to make the geopolitical or ethical calculations that inform such a drastic decision. It’s the planners’ job to make sure a strike ordered by the elected civilian leadership of the nation achieves its goal, i.e. eliminates North Korea’s nuclear and missile delivery capabilities completely.

It’s easy to say nuclear weapons should never be used, but what if conventional weapons can’t do the job, or create greater risks? Would you consider it a good ethical trade-off to wait for millions to die before killing thousands? That’s a political choice, and one that will always be second-guessed or disputed. But making such decisions is the purpose of elected civilian government.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am really hoping that whatever President Trump decides to do, does not mean that China, North Korea's biggest trading partner, will feel obligated to come to North Korea's defense militarily.

At this point in its history, the US military does not have the weaponry; the manufacturing; the troop strength; or the money to insure a positive outcome to a war against China right now.

This federal court decision from the Southern District of New York name-checks the pending SCOTUS review, but falls in line with every other decision in the federal court system. The defendant sought to suppress historic CSLI obtained without a warrant, arguing the collection of location data by cell companies is not the same thing as "voluntarily" turning these records over to a third party. (via Courthouse News Service)

From the decision [PDF]:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Understanding that Americans no longer have a right to privacy means that everything you say, everything you type into your computer, is pretty well tracked by the Feds.

Mike and I think that any Federal tracking of our communications is punishment duty, because we keep everything we say on a cell phone, or type into the computer, pretty vanilla, except for here on the website, where I logically, and peacefully, speak my mind.

The rapidly unfolding case against Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s Pakistani IT spy ring already had huge implications for National Security. Now, the story apparently goes beyond just the Democrats the Awan family was working for…

Judge Andrew Napolitano appeared on Fox Business Network on Monday where he dropped a new bombshell: not only did the Awans had access to the emails of every member of Congress, Imran Awan reportedly sold information to still unknown parties, which the FBI is currently investigating.

The explosive claim is backed up by a report in Frontpage Magazine linking the Awan brothers to the Muslim Brotherhood. The Pakistani IT staffers worked for Democrat Congressmen Andre Carson as well.

Front page reported:

The office of Andre Carson, the second Muslim in Congress, had employed Imran Awan. As did the offices of Jackie Speier and Debbie Wasserman Schultz; to whom the letter had been addressed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF, in fact, these allegations are true, Holy Hieronymus Bosch!!

Security researchers at Google have discovered a highly sophisticated spyware specialized in stealing users’ data that appears to have been developed by an Israeli company.

Google said the spyware dubbed “Lipizzan” was developed by Israeli start-up Equus Technologies which claims that it provides “tailor made innovative solutions for law enforcement, intelligence agencies, and national security organizations”.

According to Google:

“Lipizzan is a multi-stage spyware product capable of monitoring and exfiltrating a user’s email, SMS messages, location, voice calls, and media.

We have found 20 Lipizzan apps distributed in a targeted fashion to fewer than 100 devices in total and have blocked the developers and apps from the Android ecosystem.

Google Play Protect has notified all affected devices and removed the Lipizzan apps.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why am I not surprised that the company which developed this is Israeli?!?

One reporter claims that Google has been censoring websites that don’t agree with “war” or other establishment viewpoints — could it be?

Never before have so many independent news websites been threatened with low traffic and Internet rankings as in recent days. It’s as if Google’s algorithm has ramped up — at least that’s what some are claiming.

Cold War 2.0: US sanctions on Russia based on zero evidence of ‘meddled’ ‘hacked’ election (undefined terms), lies to cover regime change in Syria, ongoing fear/distraction from expanding illegal US rogue state empire

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

“The near unanimous votes for the sanctions legislation in Congress represent the strong will of the American people to see Russia take steps to improve relations with the United States. We hope that there will be cooperation between our two countries on major global issues and these sanctions will no longer be necessary.” ~ Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, representing the US as purely virtuous

Six minutes of CNN propagandizing “election meddling,” and further regime changes with Representative Will Hurd. Hurd worked for the CIA over 9 years as an undercover spy; that is, embedded to professionally lie for political purposes:

The Next Escalation: Pentagon Offers To Arm Ukraine, McCain Delighted

When we reported yesterday about Putin's surprisingly harsh response to last week's House legislation to launch new sanctions against Russia, which also binds Trump from unilaterally removing sanctions without getting Congressional approval, we concluded that "now we await the US re-retaliation in what is once again the same tit-for-tat escalation that marked the latter years of the Obama regime, as the US Military Industrial Complex breathes out a sigh of relief that for all the posturing by Trump, things between Russia and the US are back on autopilot."

We didn't have long to wait.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Russia will see this as tantamount to a declaration of war against it by the United States.

US tanks head for Tbilisi as NATO flexes muscles in ‘largest ever’ joint drills with Georgia

The war games with the Caucasian state kicked off at the Vaziani and Camp Norio training areas near Tbilisi on Sunday.

The drills, considered "the largest ever" between Georgia and NATO, will run for two weeks, with some 2,800 military personnel from NATO states and their partners – the US, UK, Germany, Turkey, Slovenia, Armenia, Ukraine and Georgia – taking part. The latter three states are not members of the alliance but “voluntarily contribute” to NATO forces, according to a US Army Europe statement.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

More of NATO'S attempts to "play picador" to Russia, I see.

US Ready to Move Additional THAAD Systems to South Korea as Quickly as Possible

The United States is ready to quickly move the remaining pieces of THAAD system into South Korea, US Department of Defense spokesperson Capt. Jeff Davis said in a briefing on Monday.

"We are certainly ready to move additional pieces in as quickly as we can," Davis told reporters when asked about THAAD.

In the Shadow of Pyongyang Missiles, US Touts Success of THAAD Intercept Test
South Korean President Moon Jae-in, who officially came to office on May 10, has repeatedly criticized the previous government under impeached leader Park Geun-hye for agreeing to host the THAAD system without first seeking parliamentary approval. Moon subsequently suspended the deployment in order to carry out an investigation into the environmental consequences of the move.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It appears that the situation on the Korean Peninsula are about to get very ugly, and very quickly.

As Saudi King's Health Wanes, War Architect Bin Salman Set To Become King

Bin Nayef’s ouster was initially reported by international media as having gone “smoothly.” However, it soon emerged that bin Salman had planned the entire affair and that the former Crown Prince, following his acquiescence of the title, was essentially under house arrest. Since then, rumblings have emerged that many in the Saudi royal family, which has long been guided by deference to elders and group consensus, are none too happy with the sudden turn of events in the normally stable kingdom.

A warhawk ascends to the throne

While speculation is rife over how bin Salman is set to manage domestic affairs, there seems to be little disagreement over bin Salman’s likely handling of key foreign policy issues, considering his tenure as Defense Minister has shown his penchant for war, as well as his hotheadedness.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have to wonder if Saudi Arabia is being given the greenlight from DC to engage in a proxy war with Iran; that could wind up being very horrific military engagement, with Russia taking Iran's side in such a conflict.

Trump vows 'all necessary measures' to protect allies from North Korea, says Abe

Donald Trump has vowed to take “all necessary measures” to protect United States allies from North Korea’s evolving military threat, the Japanese prime minister, Shinzo Abe, has said following a phone conversation with the US president.

The talks between Trump and Abe came after North Korea conducted its second intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) test on Friday – a move analysts said put most of the US within range of Pyongyang’s missiles.

The Amazon Effect: Retail Bankruptcies Surge 110% In First Half Of The Year

As Amazon flirts with a $500 billion market cap, letting Jeff Bezos try on the title of world's richest man on for size if only for a few hours, for Amazon's competitors it's "everything must go" day everyday, as the bad news in the retail sector continue to pile up with the latest Fitch report that the default rate for distressed retailers spiked again in July.

According to the rating agency, the trailing 12-month high-yield default rate among U.S. retailers rose to 2.9% in mid-July from 1.8% at the end of June, after J. Crew completed a $566 million distressed-debt exchange. Meanwhile, with the shale sector flooded with Wall Street's easy money, the overall high-yield default rate tumbled to 1.9% in the same period from 2.2% at the end of June as $4.7 billion of defaulted debt - mostly in the energy sector - rolled out of the default universe.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This number of bankruptcies, barely into the second half of the year, is horrifically bad.

Opposition Threatens "War In The Streets" As Maduro Claims Victory In Venezuela Assembly Vote

Despite US threats of “strong and swift economic sanctions” that the WSJ reported overnight could cut off a crucial source of revenue for Venezuela’s financially distressed state oil company, PDVSA, the socialist state’s leader Nicolas Maduro is claiming victory in a vote to create a new “constituent assembly,” a vote that US government officials have labeled a "sham."

The ruling Socialist party's candidates purportedly won all 545 seats in the vote. Venezuela electoral council head Tibisay Lucena said more than 41% of the country’s registered voters participated, a number that is being widely discredited by outside sources. Per press reports, the assembly will now replace the opposition controlled Congress, which was annulled by the Maduro-allied Supreme Court in March, allowing Maduro to rewrite the country's constitution, cementing his hold on power as his favorability rating with the public falls below 30%.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

No matter what happens henceforward, it will not go well for Maduro; he is looking at a civil war against his own people, and it is just a matter of time before his military, realising that the center cannot hold, will desert him.

It is not a question of "if", at this juncture, but a question of when things unravel to the point of no return.

Trump: "We'll handle North Korea. It Will Be Handled. We Handle Everything"

With Gen. John Kelly set to be sworn in as Trump's new Chief of Staff, just days after the latest and most advanced North Korean ICBM test yet, one which can reportedly reach as much as half the major metro areas on the continental US, President Trump on Monday pledged to "handle" North Korea's provocative belligerence, without specifying exactly how he would do so as he faces rising tensions and limited options.

"We'll handle North Korea. We're going to be able to handle North Korea. It will be handled. We handle everything," Trump told reporters at the start of Monday's first Cabinet meeting with his new Chief of Staff, flanked by Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Defense Secretary James Mattis.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I sure as heck wish I knew precisely what the President meant by that; it just sounds very cryptic right now.

Living on a first strike target which China could easily hit, this statement makes me more than a little nervous!!

Wasserman Schultz IT Staffer "Frantically" Liquidating $2 Million In Real Estate Assets

As the mainstream media continues to report 24x7 on their Russian collusion narrative in a shameless attempt to take down a Republican administration without any actual evidence of wrongdoing, the Democrats find themselves embroiled in yet another actual scandal, with actual crimes, where people have actually been arrested by the FBI while actually trying to flee the country...yet shockingly, none of these actual crimes seem to be of any interest at all to traditional media outlets.

Be that as it may, the rather curious case of Imran Awan continues with the latest development coming courtesy of the Daily Caller who notes that Imran was frantically liquidating nearly $2 million in real estate holdings right up until the day has was arrested at Dulles airport.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

2 million dollars is not a shabby amount of money to have tied up in real estate, and I have to wonder; how did a Congressional Aid wind up with that much money to spend on property?!?

Rand Paul Blocks NDAA Over Indefinite Detention

Sen. Rand Paul (R – KY) has blocked a motion by majority leader Mitch McConnell (R – KY) to advance the 2018 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), the massive military spending bill, saying that the bill should instead face debate and possible amendments.

This sets the bill back for 6 weeks, at least.

In particular, Sen. Paul is seeking two amendments, one which ends NDAA authorization for indefinite detention of suspects, and another related to the Authorization for the Use of Military Force (AUMF), something that was added to the House version but later quietly removed by the Speaker.

Paul’s protest is expected to delay the NDAA vote through at least the August recess, meaning a vote is unlikely until September. While this gives plenty of time for amendments to be debated, it’s not clear the Senate leadership will allow that no matter how much time they’re given.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I think that Senator Paul did this for all the right reasons, and he does have my support on this issue.

My child died before my eyes

Wisam, a 6-year-old boy, coughs harshly as his father watches over his bed. Wisam has cystic fibrosis; Gaza’s hospitals lack the enzyme treatments he needs to stay alive.

The uncertainty about what will happen to Wisam is causing his father, Bahjat Abu Rashid, great anxiety. Two years ago, Bahjat’s only other son, Muhammad, died. Bahjat said that Muhammad had a heart problem and was prevented from receiving surgery in Israel.

“If this situation continues, I will lose my second son,” Bahjat said. “We’re paying the price of political conflicts.”

Wisam is being treated in Gaza City’s Abdelaziz al-Rantisi pediatric hospital. Doctors have told Bahjat that his son could die at any moment.

As treatment for cystic fibrosis is expensive, providing for the medical needs of people with this genetic disorder is difficult under any circumstances. Yet the problems of patients in Gaza have worsened a great deal recently.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Shame on Israel, Fatah, and the Palestinian Authority for not allowing people to be treated with appropriate drugs or therapies for their illnesses!

This is....just bloody criminal, particularly in the case of children, dying needlessly.

Donald Trump Shouldn’t Start Second Korean War

If policymakers are so worried about a North Korean nuclear attack, the easy answer is to withdraw U.S. forces from the Korean peninsula. The Republic of Korea has twice the population and 40 times the GDP of the North. The ROK long has been able to provide for its conventional defense. The next step would be to drop any objections to the South, as well as Japan, from developing a countervailing nuclear deterrent. It’s not a good solution, but neither is the U.S. risking Los Angeles, Chicago, and New York to protect Seoul. Moreover, the mere possibility might galvanize China to take a more active role in dissuading North Korea from moving ahead with missile and nuclear tests.

The Tweet That Is Shaking the War Party

Most of the Donald’s tweets amount to street brawling with his political enemies, but occasionally one of them slices through Imperial Washington’s sanctimonious cant. Indeed, Monday evening’s 140 characters of solid cut right to the bone:

The Amazon Washington Post fabricated the facts on my ending massive, dangerous, and wasteful payments to Syrian rebels fighting Assad…..

Needless to say, we are referencing not the dig at the empire of Bezos, but the characterization of Washington’s anti-Assad policy as "massive, dangerous and wasteful".

No stouter blow to the neocon/Deep State "regime change" folly has ever been issued by an elected public official. Yet there it is – the self-composed words of the man in the Oval Office. It makes you even want to buy some Twitter stock!

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Senator Mc Cain's net worth is estimated at +/- $21 million dollars.

John Mc Cain's estimated net worth

So one has to wonder: just how many investments in the Military/Industrial complex he has, when his job as a senator only pays $174,000 annually. Something HAS to be filling in that gap, and my best guess would be investments in bombs, bullets, and aircraft; you know, the stuff that kills people.

So of course, he had to attempt to neutralise President Trump with that stupid, sophomoric comment about the President playing into Putin's hands.

Wasserman-Schultz And The Pakistani IT Scammers: "There's More Than Just Bank Fraud Going On Here"

In Washington, it’s never about what they tell you it’s about. So take this to the bank: The case of Imran Awan, Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s mysterious Pakistani IT guy, is not about bank fraud.

Yet bank fraud was the stated charge on which Awan was arrested at Dulles Airport this week, just as he was trying to flee the United States for Pakistan, via Qatar. That is the same route taken by Awan’s wife, Hina Alvi, in March, when she suddenly fled the country, with three young daughters she yanked out of school, mega-luggage, and $12,400 in cash.

It Has to be Asked: Was Wasserman Schultz Having Affair with Criminal IT Staffer Imran Awan?

Most of the House Members fired the Awans subsequently.
Only Debbie Wasserman Schultz kept Imran Awan on the pay roll up to the day he got arrest for Bank Fraud after trying to flee the country.

The rest of the family fled since months to Pakistan along with hundreds of thousands of tax-payer money they mysteriously were able to wire.

Democrats were willing or unwillingly compromised by the Awans and Sensitive Information leaked to foreign Enemies! (Muslim Brotherhood – Yemen Raid with dead soldier for example?) Many of them have Seats on Committees that handle highly sensitive information.

According to Redditt — Imran Awan is now released with an GPS ankle monitor until his preliminary hearing on Aug. 21.

More information is coming out on Imran Awan and his criminal activities.
Awan pretended to be his wife when requesting a loan from the Congressional Federal Credit Union and got it! He had the credit union wire $165,000 to PAKISTAN – no questions asked.

Over 40 Killed in Fighting Over Southwest Yemen Port of Mocha

Pro-Saudi forces may have seized the Khalid ibn al-Walid military base near the key port of Mocha last week in Yemen, but that hasn’t done much to slow the fighting in the surrounding area, as the Shi’ite Houthis continue to resist the advance of the Saudi-backed forces and try to push them out of the strategic area.

Heavy fighting has continued over the past several days both around the base and in towns around the area, with over 40 fighters killed, split between 16 Houthis and 27 Saudi-backed fighters. Neither side appears to be seriously gaining or losing ground.

The fighting has even extended off the coast of Mocha, with the Houthi rebels attacking a UAE warship with a boat full of explosives just off the coast. Saudi coalition officials say there were no casualties, not significant damage.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This US-enabled, Saudi genocide in Yemen is barely getting a word of coverage from the Western Press;and yet, there should be a national conversation on this moral outrage in which the US government and military collude with the Saudi government and military to kill non-combatants; block Yemeni ports, so children are starving of malnutrition; and where cholera (which may have been weaponised) is now killing Yemenis to the point of 300,000 having been infected.

These are war crimes, pure and simple, folks; and they are being done in your name, with your tax dollars.

Centcom: Qatar Blockade Hinders Long-Term Planning at Udeid Airbase

Central Command (Centcom) has expressed concern in new statement about the impact of a long-term blockade on the nation of Qatar on the United States’ ability to carry out wars in the long-term operating out of the al-Udeid Airbase.

Al-Udeid is the forward operating headquarters for Central Command, hosting some 10,000 US troops, and is basically the site from which America’s constant wars across the Middle East are conducted. Officials say that so far, the wars haven’t been impacted by the blockade on Qatar.

They’re not at all clear how that’s going to work in the long run, however, as hopes that the diplomatic crisis would be resolved in a few weeks haven’t exactly panned out. Admission it could last months also comes with comments from some of the blockading states that it could basically be permanent.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Perhaps President Trump might have considered this before he tweeted that Qatar is a sponsor of terrorism, a statement from which the Defense Department had to distance itself, very quickly thereafter.

Nations Substitution': Witnessing the 'Biological Extinction' of Europeans

Some European countries, namely Italy, Germany, France and the UK, are facing the so-called "substitution of nations," where the national ethnical majority is disappearing physically and biologically, and is being substituted by migrants, according to a recent report. Sputnik Italy discussed the issue with Daniele Scalea, the author of the report.

The recent report of the Italian-based Machiavelli Center of Political and Strategic Studies (Centro studi politici e strategici Machiavelli), "How immigration is changing Italian demographics" has revealed that a number of European countries are facing the "biological and physical extinction" of their national ethnicities.

Ethnic majorities in such countries as Italy, Germany, France and the UK, are gradually turning into ethnic minorities, while being "substituted" by incoming migrants.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Is this how people are forced to forget their history, as though it had utterly no meaning whatsoever?!?

Russia has banned VPNs and other technology that allows users to gain anonymous access to websites.

The new law (link via Google Translate), signed today by President Vladimir Putin, goes into effect on Nov. 1 and represents another major blow to an open Internet. This weekend, news broke that Apple has removed most major VPN apps from the App Store in China to comply with regulations passed earlier this year that require VPN apps to be explicitly licensed by the Chinese government.

On May 17, the day Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein appointed former FBI Director Robert Mueller as Special Counsel charged with investigating possible “Russian collusion” with President Trump’s campaign, Julian Assange at WikiLeaks tweeted a WikiLeaks released State Department cable documenting that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton ordered Mueller to deliver a sample of stolen Highly Enriched Uranium (HEU) to Russia in 2009.

Assange’s email signaled an investigation is needed into Mueller and his complex involvement with Russia and Uranium One, the company Bill Clinton promoted with Canadian entrepreneur Frank Giustra while Hillary Clinton served as Obama secretary of state in a criminal saga that ended up with Secretary Clinton voting to give the Russian State Atomic Nuclear Energy Agency, Rosatom, control of approximately 20 percent of all uranium holdings in the United States.

With opposition parties boycotting what they call a rigged election, Reuters reports the streets of Caracas were deserted on Sunday as a minority of Venezuelans trickled to the polls to elect a constitutional super-body that unpopular leftist President Maduro vowed would begin a new era of combat in the crisis-stricken nation. That is good news as, following the death of two people yesterday, shortly after a large group of motorbikes sped through the city, and explosion hit, reportedly injuring a number of police officers.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The end game will not go well for Maduro.

I am reasonably certain that there are US-sponsored assassination teams, tracking his every move, and the moment they have a clear shot...the man is probably going to get killed.
