Israel Pressing Ahead With Settlements Despite UN Resolution

The Jerusalem municipality, undeterred by a U.N. anti-settlement resolution, is due to consider on Wednesday requests for construction permits for hundreds of new homes for Israelis in areas that Israel captured in 1967 and annexed to the city.

Israel is still fuming over the resolution approved last Friday by the United Nations Security Council that demands an end to settlement activity in the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem.

Israel has also described as “shameful” the decision of its long-standing ally the United States to abstain in the vote rather than wield its veto. The Obama administration is a strong opponent of the settlements.

An agenda published by Jerusalem City Hall listed applications for at least 390 new homes whose approval looks certain to intensify international and Palestinian opposition to the Israeli settlement-building.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Given that Israel has stopped its normal share of funding for the UN, and refuses to abide by the norms of international law, the UN's only intelligent answer to this is to expel Israel from the UN; place sanctions against it; and declare that their UN representative is now "persona non grata".

I sincerely hope that this act on the part of the Israeli government energizes the BDS movement, because such actions speak a language both Israeli corporate business owners, and Israeli leadership, understands.

MOSCOW COURT RECOGNIZES 2014 TURMOIL IN UKRAINE AS COUP D’ÉTAT

A Russian court has ruled in favor of a former Ukrainian lawmaker, recognizing the events in Kiev in 2014, which ended in the ousting of the president and the installation of the current regime, as an illegal coup d’état.

“The main claim of the lawsuit has been confirmed by testimony presented within the case,” Dorogomilovsky Court Judge Anna Shipikova announced on Tuesday in Moscow.

The lawsuit was filed by former Ukrainian parliament member and co- founder of the Ukraine Salvation Committee Vladimir Oleynik. He claimed that when the Ukrainian parliament voted to oust then-President Viktor Yanukovich in February 2014, the stated reason was “self-withdrawal from execution of presidential responsibilities,” but the Ukrainian Constitution did not include this as a reason for impeachment, and was illegally changed without approval from the Ukrainian Constitutional Court.

Yanukovich’s ousting was therefore illegal, as was the subsequent early presidential election in May 2014.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This coup was orchestrated by the US government; the IMF; and the EU.

In fact, the major US operative in developing this coup, Victoria Nuland, bragged about how much money the US spent to destabilise Ukraine, to send its government into a more "Western-centric orbit" at a presentation in December of 2013:

Victoria Nuland Admits: US Has Invested $5 Billion In The Development of Ukrainian, "Democratic Institutions"

But that was seen, by the US, as only a first step toward toppling Vladimir Putin:

Ukrainian Coup 'Interim Step" in Toppling Putin - Former CIA Analyst

And we have seen how swimmingly THAT has gone, with Ukraine now fraying at the seams, economically, and Putin triumphant in Syria, having gotten the anti-Assad jihadists either running, or killed outright; yet another "imaginary triumph" of Obama's "legacy", I suppose, or at least, that's the way he's going to paint it.

SPOOKED: HOW THE CIA MANIPULATES THE MEDIA, PART 2

Americans are under almost constant bombardment with propaganda. Everyone who wants our money is trying in overt and more subtle ways to shape our views and our spending decisions. We kind of get that.

But we don’t understand very well, or even recognize at all, the constant efforts by elements of our own government to shape how we see things.

Perhaps the most insidious aspect of this is efforts by American intelligence services to influence our media, our cultural, and our storytelling institutions. The goal is to present a version of historical events that suits the purposes of these murky power centers.

WhoWhatWhy has started to take back ownership of our vital information pipelines.

A new book, from which we excerpt below, provides important insights into how the news, movies and other forms of dissemination are quietly shaped to “help” us know what to think.

— WhoWhatWhy introduction by Russ Baker

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is very simple: just count on everything the US government tells its citizens and the world to be a lie, to advance its agendas and narratives, and life will be a lot simpler, henceforward.

US GOVERNMENT CAN LEGALLY ACCESS YOUR FACEBOOK DATA (AND NOW WE KNOW HOW)

The end of the year is approaching, and data concerning government abuses of power has begun pouring in.

According to Facebook’s Global Government Requests Report, government’s requests for Facebook account data rose 27 percent in the first half of 2016.

Facebook’s official announcement explained that requests for user data went from 46,710 in the last half of 2015 to 59,229 in the first half of 2016. At least 56 percent of these requests, Facebook added, “contained a non-disclosure order that prohibited us from notifying the user.”

Law enforcement agencies from across the globe, Facebook continued, often send restriction requests demanding Facebook remove content from its forums. Fortunately, these requests dropped substantially this year, from 55,827 in the last half of 2015 to 9,663 in 2016 — an 87 percent drop. Most of the 2015 requests revolved around “French content restrictions of a single image from the November 13, 2015 terrorist attacks.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It gets worse: as reported today at blacklistednews.com:

FACEBOOK DOESN’T TELL USERS EVERYTHING IT REALLY KNOWS ABOUT THEM

Obama Quietly Signs The "Countering Disinformation And Propaganda Act" Into Law

Recall that as we reported in early June, "a bill to implement the U.S.’ very own de facto Ministry of Truth had been quietly introduced in Congress. As with any legislation attempting to dodge the public spotlight the Countering Foreign Propaganda and Disinformation Act of 2016 marks a further curtailment of press freedom and another avenue to stultify avenues of accurate information. Introduced by Congressmen Adam Kinzinger and Ted Lieu, H.R. 5181 seeks a “whole-government approach without the bureaucratic restrictions” to counter “foreign disinformation and manipulation,” which they believe threaten the world’s “security and stability.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is going to be a fight that goes all the way to the Supreme Court.

Thanks to Oliver Stone, Thousands of JFK Assassination Files To Be Released

In 1991, Oliver Stone’s film “JFK” renewed public interest in a probable conspiracy surrounding the events leading to the November 22, 1963 assassination. The massive surge in interest lead to the passage of the 1992 JFK Records Act, which gave the government 25 years to release all documents relating to what happened in Dealey Plaza on that day.

The National Archives annex in Maryland is currently processing, scanning, and preparing for the large trove of files to be released.

In a report on President Barack Obama’s record, detailing how he led the “economic rescue” of the United States, the White House says that Obama “provided tax relief” to the typical American family.

Mole Reveals Terrorist Group's Violent Plans For U.S. Inauguration Day (Video)

For anyone who hasn’t already heard, several different far-left activist groups including but not limited to Rising Tide North America, Showing up For Racial Justice, and of course the ever-popular Black Lives Matter are actively engaged at this very moment in various stages of planning for a violent uprising on Donald Trump's Inauguration Day.

In a recent article that can be found at ipatriot.com, President-elect Trump’s close friend Roger Stone confirmed precisely what I’ve been warning about since at least this past June. Stone says that one of his undercover operatives was recently able to infiltrate a J-20 Committee planning session, which is the committee responsible for helping the #DisruptJ20 movement “create a sense of crisis” both in Washington D.C., and elsewhere around the country during the President-Elect's Inauguration. So far, the operative has revealed the following:

Josh Earnest is upset because Obama hasn’t been acknowledged as ‘most transparent’ pres. in history

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said during a CNN interview aired Sunday that he’s upset over the fact that President Barack Obama doesn’t get enough credit for being the “most transparent” president in United States history.

Earnest made his comments during an interview with CNN host Brian Stelter, who said that many journalists would disagree with Earnest that the Obama White House has been the most transparent in history, noting the complaints of journalists and denied Freedom of Information Act requests.

Earnest responded by saying that the Obama administration has responded to “hundreds of thousands” of FOIA requests, but argued that there is “no constituency in American politics for transparency in government beyond journalists.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A long memo to Josh Earnest; sir, as of that last statement, it appears that you have gone completely around the bend, and met yourself on the other side of that cycle.

And I would like to politely remind this gentleman, that at the very top of its statement regarding FOIA, the website of the National Security Archive, it very clearly states;

What is the FOIA? Enacted in 1966, The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) is a federal law that establishes the public's right to obtain information from federal government agencies. The FOIA is codified at 5 U.S.C. Section 552. "Any person" can file a FOIA request, including U.S. citizens, foreign nationals, organizations, associations, and universities. In 1974, after the Watergate scandal, the Act was amended to force greater agency compliance. It was also amended in 1996 to allow for greater access to electronic information.

So, his absolute, unadulterated codswallop about there being "... is no constituency in American politics for transparency in government beyond journalists.” is proven, with a little basic fact checking, to be simply another Obama Administration lie.

And I would like to politely remind Mr. Earnest that it is those very same presstitutes and whoresspondents he holds in such high esteem, who simply regurgitate whatever the current administration wants them to say, to further their geopolitical agendas, have told us some interesting things, but refused to inform Americans of other realities:

1. Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction.
There were no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq

2. Al Assad gassed his own people with Sarin, just when the UN Committee landed in Damascus to investigate. Al Assad did not gas his own people

3. That Obamacare would be self-sustaining. Obamacare Insurance Markets on Verge of Collapse

4. Never giving Americans the real reason why Libya's Gaddafi was assassinated. Declassified Emails Reveal NATO Killed Gaddafi to Stop Libyan Creation of Gold-Backed Currency

5. Russia annexed Crimea in 2014 “Russia never Annexed Crimea, no Plans to intervene in Ukraine, it’s a Western Delusion” – Putin

6. The Saudi campaign against Yemen is just, which is why US, UK, and Canada should keep selling them weapons.The US Should Stand with Saudi Arabia in Yemen

U.S. and U.K. Continue to Actively Participate in Saudi War Crimes, Targeting of Yemeni Civilians

Images: dead and wounded children, from Saudi airstrikes

Images: Yemeni children dying of malnutrition, due to Saudi naval bockade of Yemen

7. Unemployment is only 5%, at the end of 2016:
New Record: Americans Not in Labor Force Breaks 95 Million for First Time; the bureau counts those not in the labor force as people who do not have a job and did not actively seek one in the past four weeks.

So you see, Mr. Earnest, I could go on and on; but I am sure you catch my drift; and the unfortunate reality, here, is that President Obama's "transparency legacy" is just about as translucent as is a big, fat, glob of butter.

Keith Ellison Says It’s Time For Democrats To Stop Ignoring Their Voters

Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) rallied hometown supporters and made his case to lead his party on Thursday, toeing the line between criticizing Democrats’ failings and calling for them to come together under a Donald Trump presidency.

“We cannot, as Democrats, form some circular firing squad,” he said. “We need unity more than ever.”

Ellison, who is running for chair of the Democratic National Committee and will give up his congressional seat if he wins, grew up in Detroit. He held Thursday’s town hall at the Baptist church where his brother Brian Ellison is a pastor.

His opponents for the DNC position, which is currently held by Interim Chairwoman Donna Brazile, include Labor Secretary Tom Perez, Idaho Democrat Sally Boynton Brown, South Carolina’s Jaime Harrison and New Hampshire’s Ray Buckley.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I suppose we are supposed to congratulate Representative Ellison for his magnificent grasp of the obvious, but he is absolutely correct on this.

The Democrats' stunning loss in the Presidential election last month was a totally self-inflicted wound, revolving around the party having cheated Sanders out of the nomination; their presenting such a fatally flawed candidate as Clinton, who has more baggage than does Kim Kardashian on a photo shoot; and indulging in the kind of "magical thinking" which led the party apparatchiks to believe that Clinton's smug,suffocating sense of entitledness wouldn't completely turn Democrats (including the Sanders supporters, many of whom defected to Trump) off.

And somehow and somewhere, they have to understand how utterly wrong they were in their assessments, and get going on fixing those issues.

And a final factor; the independent media, which very much made the case for Clinton's not being a fit candidate, is not going anywhere.

The DNC needs to understand that; and the hack attacks, attempting to get sites like WRH offline, simply appear to be electronic temper tantrums by people who are utterly incapable of accepting defeat graciously.

So here's a short, heartfelt, request to the DNC: next presidential election, can you please try to run a candidate who is NOT so perversely corrupt as was Clinton, and someone the American people can get behind?!?

And I would like to politely present one potential candidate for you, who is both a woman, and a minority: this would be your own Tulsi Gabbard, our Representative from Hawaii. I respect her very greatly, as she is a pro-peace Democrat, and I think in the year 2020, the American people might really be ready for someone who looks for the US to resolve its geopolitical differences by methods other than war.

More “fake news” photos “from Aleppo” proven false, poorly executed propaganda

The Fake News just keeps on coming as the NATO imperialists realize they are losing control in Syria and their plans to destroy the secular and democratically-elected government of Bashar al-Assad.

From “Russia did it!!!” (whatever the “it” might be), to mass civilian suicide in East Aleppo, the mainstream corporate press is deconstructing right in front of our eyes. It doesn’t help the MSM’s case that every time one of their “journalists” tries to confront legitimate alt media researchers, activists, or journalists, they are humiliated on live television. Still, we have to give them credit for remaining committed no matter how embarrassing the fight gets for them.

CNN RATINGS HIT ALL TIME RECORD LOW

CNN, the network so thoroughly exposed by WikiLeaks as a propaganda mouthpiece of the establishment, have recorded their lowest ratings since records began. For the week ending December 18, CNN ranked a lowly number 18 for total viewers per day for ad supported cable networks.

CNN was beat out by channels such as The Cartoon Network and Home And Garden TV Network. Viewers obviously decided The Cartoon Network is closer to reality than what CNN pumps out. Perhaps most embarrassingly, The Food Network had more daily viewers than CNN.

How the mighty have fallen. For primetime viewers CNN did not even rank in the top 25.

CNN is falling apart, which is nice to see given they are an establishment run propaganda channel exposed by their former staff as accepting cash to play what amount to informercials for foreign dictators.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These ratings are precisely what CNN deserves, for having so long, and so willingly, regurgitated the lies of the government as "the truth".

GOLDMAN-SACHS CAUGHT MANIPULATING US DOLLAR — NO ONE ARRESTED, SLAP ON WRIST INSTEAD

The same company that paid Hillary Clinton nearly $700,000, for three one-hour speeches, has now been ordered to pay a nine-figure sum for currency market manipulation.

Goldman-Sachs was ordered to pay 120 million, “to settle charges that it often tried to manipulate a global dollar benchmark for interest rate products over a five-year period,” according to Reuters.

The investment corporation was levied the “civil penalty to settle charges that it often tried to manipulate a global dollar benchmark for interest rate products over a five-year period,” the report states.

Citing the Commodity Futures Trading Commission’s report, Reuters stated Goldman-Sachs engaged in its illegal activity in an attempt to “manipulate the U.S. Dollar International Swaps and Derivatives Association Fix benchmark,” and was ordered to cease from doing so in the future by taking measures to prevent a recurrence.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The only way to bring this kind of behaviour under control is to make this kind of activity punishable by hard jail time for all those who signed off on these practices; this financial wrist slap means NOTHING for a company the size of Goldman Sachs.

Jewish Daily Forward: "What Do Israelis Think About Americans? Start With Disdain."

Though Israel is a famously fractious society, Israelis tend to agree on one thing: Their strongest supporters are an inherently dupable people. “Most Israelis think Americans are pro-Israel and we can sell them anything, especially mud from the Dead Sea,” said David Lifshitz, the lead writer for the Israeli comedy show “Eretz Nehederet,” or “Wonderful Land.”

“Or — just regular mud with a ‘Dead Sea’ sticker on it.” But it’s not just American tourists whom many Israelis see as guileless. American foreign policy is held up to similar scrutiny here, even as Israel receives billions of dollars in foreign aid from the United States each year. “Americans are perceived to be naive, especially when it comes to the Middle East,” said Uri Dromi, who served as a spokesman for the Yitzhak Rabin and Shimon Peres governments. “It is a bad neighborhood and it seems like they just don’t realize it.”

Never had there been so many martyrs in the space of 100 years, not even in the space of 1,000 years. These tens of millions of Christians, the victims of a century in open revolt against God, remain unknown and unsung. Today I would like to recall for you the Mexican Catholics who, some 70 years ago, rose up against Freemasonry for the social reign of our Lord Jesus Christ. They were called the Cristeros.

Leah Remini calls Scientology’s bluff: If I lied about anything, sue me

In an a interview on Larry King Now Thursday, reformed Scientologist Leah Remini challenged the church’s criticism of her reality show Scientology and the Aftermath, arguing if they want to call her and her fellow defectors liars, “they should sue.”

Asked about the Church of Scientology’s statement that Remini is a “bitter ex-Scientologst” and “spoiled entitled diva” lying about the church for attention and recognition, Remini told King she has nothing to say about its position.

“I don’t,” Remini said. “I think that says a lot about this organization. They should sue us, it’s as simple as that. If we’re lying—“

“And listen, they say this on every outlet that can,” she continued. “They have said this about every single person that’s spoke out, and not one lawsuit has been brought to anybody.”

Remini noted Scientologists are “not a group that is scared of a lawsuit.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mike and I have recorded, and watched, this series with great interest.

BADCOP: POLICE TASER 91YO ALZHEIMER’S PATIENT FOR NOT GOING TO THE DOCTOR - VIDEO

A hard to watch video of police tasering a 91-year-old man has just been released showing the nature of Gandhi’s quote above. For refusing to go to a doctor visit, an elderly Alzheimer’s patient was tasered and handcuffed — because police were worried about his well-being.

The incident happened in March, however, the body camera footage was not released until Thursday. In the video, we see an undersheriff with the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office deploy his taser on a 91-year-old man with Alzheimer’s at a Minneapolis nursing home because the man wouldn’t get in a car to go to the doctor.

To get this man to a doctor for his health, police assaulted him, placed him in handcuffs, and he had to be carried out on a stretcher. This is why cops are not doctors.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Lasers are NOT "less than lethal"; if they hit someone at just the right point in their heart rhythm, a laser can cause arrhythmia , and even death.

But my question is, why the hell were the police called at all by this alleged "care home" in the first place?!?

Were their orderlies absolutely ignorant about "gentle restraint" techniques, which used to be taught to deal with people with dementia, who would not comply with a nurse's orders?!?

This is one of the most sickening uses of excessive force I have heard of in quite some time, and I would predict that there will be a well-deserved lawsuit against both the local police department, and the care home, in the not too distant future.

CLIMATEGATE: A CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY (UPDATED FOR WINTER 2016-2017)

"One of the saddest lessons of history is this: If we've been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. We're no longer interested in finding out the truth. The bamboozle has captured us. It's simply too painful to acknowledge, even to ourselves, that we've been taken. Once you give a charlatan power over you, you almost never get it back." -- Carl Sagan

"The real deniers are people who think our climate was and should remain static and unchanging." -- Paul Driessen and Chris Skates

"Every great cause begins as a movement, becomes a business, and eventually degenerates into a racket." -- Eric Hoffer, The Temper of Our Time

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I decided that it was time to repost this article (which has the latest news) because over at The New American, they had a story, "Princeton Physics Professor Discredits Anthropogenic Climate Change Theory", which even as it reports on the discrediting, undermines it with the comment, "He also goes into detail of why the United Nation’s models are incorrect despite their overwhelming confidence that significant warming is taking place due to human activity."

RUSSIA SUPPORTING LIBYAN GENERAL WHO IS A FORMER CIA ASSET

Gen. Khalifa Hifter, the head of the self-styled Libyan National Army (LNA), has had a long list of allies. Starting as a participant in Gadhafi’s 1969 military coup, he rose steadily through the ranks before being captured by Chad during the 1987 war. He was disavowed by Gadhafi, but by 1988 was a top figure in the CIA-backed rebels.

The rebel force was short-lived, however, and Hifter was brought to the US as a CIA supported “refugee” in 1990. He participated in at least one other failed rebellion before the 2011 Arab Spring, when he claimed to be the head of the post-Gadhafi military. Power struggles led to him announcing a military coup in 2014 before finally being named the head of the LNA, a faction allied with the Tobruk government.

Police’s secret cellphone-surveillance tool can also block calls by the innocent

It’s no secret that state and local law enforcement agencies have grown more militarized in the past decade, with armored personnel carriers, drones and robots.

But one item in their arsenal has been kept largely out of public view, to the dismay of civil liberties advocates who say its use is virtually unregulated – and largely untracked.

The device is a suitcase-size surveillance tool commonly called a StingRay that mimics a cellphone tower, allowing authorities to track individual cellphones in real time. Users of the device, which include scores of law enforcement agencies across the country, sign a non-disclosure agreement when they purchase it, pledging not to divulge its use, even in court cases against defendants the device helped capture.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mike and I have concluded that any surveillance of us by any city, county,or any "alphabet soup" Federal security agency is punishment duty; our private communications, text and phone, are both very loving; and very vanilla! :-)

YOUR RIGHT TO RECORD THE POLICE IS AT RISK

In 2011, the First Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that we have the right to record the police in the public performance of their duties. But what does the right to record the police mean if you cannot exercise it? Not much.

Our society entrusts the police with unusual and extreme powers: the ability to use violence and to deprive us of our liberty primary among them. Recording the police is a tool we can use to make sure officers don’t abuse those powers, and with which to hold them accountable if and when they do. Five years ago, the First Circuit held that this right is protected by the First Amendment. Chilling videos depicting police killing people across the country, released over the past few years with alarming frequency, underscore the importance of securing this right.

Here in Massachusetts, our right to record is at risk.

More “Fake News” Photos “From Aleppo” Proven False, Poorly Executed Propaganda

By Brandon Turbeville

The Fake News just keeps on coming as the NATO imperialists realize they are losing control in Syria and their plans to destroy the secular and democratically-elected government of Bashar al-Assad. From “Russia did it!!!” (whatever the “it” might be), to mass civilian suicide in East Aleppo, the mainstream corporate press is deconstructing right in front of our eyes. It doesn’t help the MSM’s case that every time one of their “journalists” tries to confront legitimate alt media researchers, activists, or journalists, they are humiliated on live television. Still, we have to give them credit for remaining committed no matter how embarrassing the fight gets for them.

This embarrassment includes the continued use of photographs alleging to show the “crimes against humanity” committed by the “brutal dictator” Bashar al-Assad that turn out to be photos of other countries, carefully clipped scenes, and even images from music videos...

FALSE NEWS BY OMISSION MISINFORMS - POINTING SUCH OUT MAY SOON BE CENSORED

Some Israeli military official claim that Hizbullah is using Armored Personal Carriers in Syria, a correct claim, which it received from the Lebanese Armed Forces, a lie. The carriers in question are way out of date tracked vehicles and the LAF once received some upgraded ones from the United States. Israel makes these claims every once a while.

But as was reported when these claims were made on earlier occasions Hizbullah actually took such APCs from the Southern Lebanese Army which was an Israeli proxy force used during the Israeli occupation of Lebanon. When in 2000 Hizbullah finally kicked Israel out of Lebanon, the SLA dissolved and all the weapons Israel had delivered to it were taken into Hizbullah's stocks. They have since been used to fight Israel and various Gulf states proxy Jihadis in Lebanon and Syria.

NYPD COPS RAID WRONG HOME, POSTING PHOTO OF HANDCUFFED FAMILY TO SNAPCHAT

New York City cops raided a family’s home in Brooklyn at the break of dawn Thursday, handcuffing every family member while searching the apartment unit for three hours before realizing they had the wrong home and leaving.

Next thing the family knew, a photo showing them handcuffed while sitting on the couch appeared on Snapchat with the caption, “Merry Christmas it’s NYPD!”.

Another photo also appeared on Snapchat with the caption “Warrant sweeps Its still a party smh.”

Now internal affairs is investigating, but have refused to release the names of the officers involved.

According to ABC 7, which interviewed the family:

“The worst part was the Snapchats,” Kimberly Santiago said. “That’s what really got to me.”

“The things that he wrote, it’s like, this what you all do?” Santiago said. “If he did that to, picture how many other families he’s done that to. And he was the only one standing there watching us.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Congrats, NYPD; you are looking at (yet another) lawsuit, courtesy of officer stupidity, and not following regulations.

BRITISH GOVT-FUNDED OUTLET OFFERED JOURNALIST $17,000 A MONTH TO PRODUCE PROPAGANDA FOR SYRIAN REBELS

The Revolutionary Forces of Syria (RFS) media office, a major Syrian opposition media outfit and frequent source of information for Western media, is funded by the British government and is managed by Westerners operating out of Turkey, according to emails provided to AlterNet by a Middle East reporter RFS tried to recruit.

The outlet stirred controversy this November when it released a video at the height of the Mannequin Challenge, a pop culture craze in which people compete for how long they can freeze in place on video. The RFS video depicted a staged rescue by the White Helmets, the Western-funded rescue group that operates exclusively in rebel-held territory. RFS quickly removed the video and issued an apology out of apparent concern that the staged rescue could raise questions about the authenticity of other videos by the White Helmets.

Facebook 'fact checker' who will arbitrate on 'fake news' is accused of defrauding website to pay for prostitutes - and its staff includes an escort-porn star and 'Vice Vixen domme'

One of the websites Facebook is to use to arbitrate on 'fake news' is involved in a bitter legal dispute between its co-founders, with its CEO accused of using company money for prostitutes.

‘It’s a Wonderful Lie’: 9-minute ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’ analysis of Federal Reserve fraud to call debt-creation as ‘money supply;’ with OBVIOUS solutions worth $1,000,000 per average US household whenever ‘We the People’ are willing to look, learn, speak

It’s a Wonderful Life is a seasonal classic reminding ‘We the People’ of our ongoing engagement with a .01% parasitic class using the public as work animals (“cattle” in the story). The story’s protagonist, George Bailey, embraces spiritual insight to continue literal “good Faith” effort for his community to not become slum-renters to antagonist, Henry Potter.

The following data easily prove that “work animal” for a .01% parasitic class neither overstates nor understates the following data, with ~$1,000,000 in benefits for the average US household with reforms easily demonstrated for anyone with the intellectual integrity and moral courage to look.

The Ruse of Children’s Rights

By Rosanne Lindsay

We are entering the era of mandates and government invasion, where up is down, privileges are rights, and children are the property of the State. In the land of liberty, all is illusion.

According to William Wagner, J.D., magistrate judge, “Today, a majority of the Supreme Court no longer treats the parents’ right to control and direct the upbringing of their child as a fundamental liberty.”

The denial of parents’ rights by State authorities has become more frequent over the last five decades as government has tested its reach under the color of law...

Star Wars: Lucas wrote a ‘false flag’ historical allegory about US devolution to rogue state empire. It’s true: US ‘leads’ ‘developed’ nations to war-poverty murder ~500 million in last 25 years as most evil government in world history

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

Star Wars’ Rogue One is a story of rebel leaders’ strategy development to stop a total-evil empire fooling many with “fake news” of bringing “safety and security” to the public after a history of false-flag terrorism (and here). In the story, insiders leak literally explosive data that unfolds to escalating military engagement.

Our real world is a story is exactly the same of a rogue state empire, but with an option for public awakening to Emperor’s New Clothes facts that could end the empire through lawful arrests of .01% criminal leaders.

Edited from what I wrote about Star Wars in 2015:

“How do democracies get turned into dictatorships? The democracies aren’t overthrown; they’re given away... Star Wars was really about the Vietnam War.” - George Lucas, creator of Star Wars

Made-in-America Weapons, War Crimes, and the Outcry Over Yemen

As the US limits some arms sales to Saudi Arabia, human rights groups present 'overwhelming evidence' pointing back at Washington.

Yemen’s 21-month war has devastated the country and sparked a humanitarian catastrophe. The UN recorded 4,014 killed and thousands more injured by Saudi-led coalition air strikes between March 2015 and September 2016, carried out with the backing of the US and UK.

The war has displaced 2.2 million Yemenis, while an additional 180,000 have fled the country (refugees are so desperate, some are fleeing to Somalia). Yemen, already one of the poorest countries in the Middle East, was pulled into this crisis after Houthi rebels ousted President Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi in early 2015. Alarmed by the Houthi rebel advances in Yemen, neighboring Saudi Arabia and its allies in the six-member Gulf Cooperation Council called for the United Nations to bring an end to the “coup” (pdf).

Webmaster's Commentary: 

At this point, Saudi Arabia, The United States Government, the UK Government and (as reported at this blog yesterday) the Canadian government are neck deep in war crimes.

The House of Saud, apparently, believes that committing utterly genocidal war crimes against the Houthi rebels in Yemen, killing scores of innocents n the process, is no big deal.

The Saudi military hits schools, hospitals, and open-air markets, all civilian targets, with impunity.

Their scorched earth approach to this campaign, against their brother and sister Muslims in Yemen, reminds me of what the Papal Legate, Pierre de Castelnau, said to his military in the church's persecution of French Cathars at the siege of Languedoc, upon hearing that women and children were also with the men who had taken refuge there.

And what was that infamous statement?

It was: "kill them all: God will find his own."

I don't quite know how this translates into Arabic, but you catch my drift.

However, the images I am about to share don't lie. And I will warn you: they are intensely graphic, so if you have a problem with real images of the war in Yemen, please go no further in reading this article.

And did I mention that the Saudi blockade of Yemeni ports, which means food cannot get into this country, has translated into starvation for thousands of Yemen's kids?!?

At this moment in history, my brother and sister Brits, Canadians, and Americans share more in common than our English heritage; we are all governed by administrations who are complicit in war crimes courtesy of these weapons sales, used for genocide in Yemen, to Saudi Arabia.

I don't know how it makes the rest of you feel; but right now, come January, I think that the citizens all these countries need to have a peaceful, focused dialogue with those who allegedly represent us, and let them know that these weapons sales cannot continue, because their use, in the Saudi war in Yemen, is obscenely immoral, and if they want another term in office, they will, collectively, stop this.

GOOGLE EMPLOYEE SUES THE COMPANY FOR ‘INTERNAL SPYING PROGRAM’

The employee is suing Google, stating that the “spying” policies violate the California labor laws.

According to the suit, Google has several policies in place that make it impossible for employees to give information that may harm the company’s reputation, including illegal conduct and contract breaches that takes place within Google itself.

In fact, employees are urged to report fellow co-workers who they think might be “leaking” information to a third party, including misconduct on the company’s part.

The report also states that employees may not complain about activities they deem suspicious or possibly even illegal to Google’s attorneys for fear of repercussions.

The suit, which was filed by an anonymous Google employee, also claims that Google has a program named Stop Leaks which aims to curb confidential information about the company.

SCHOOL-TO-PRISON PIPELINE COMPLETE — NEW LAW MAKES SCHOOLYARD FIGHTS A FELONY

Dear Parents/Guardians:

We want to make you aware of a few new State Statutes that will go into effect on January 1, 2017, which may have a drastic impact on how incidents are handled in area school districts.

The way the new statue reads, if a person commits the offense of an assault in the third degree this will now be classified as a Class E Felony, rather than a misdemeanor. If he or she knowingly causes physical injury to another person (hits someone or has a fight with another individual and an injury occurs) – one or both participants may be charged with a Felony.
Gone are the days when teachers broke up fights and sent the kids home, calling the parents and perhaps suspending the kid if it was a serious incident. “School Resource Officers” or local cops now arrest the kids and, if there is any perceived injury (an arbitrary judgment), will charge them with third-degree assault – treating children cooped up in school as if they are violent adults on the streets.

Canada Admits Weapons Sold to Riyadh May Have Been Used In Yemen

The Canadian government has admitted that weapons it sold to Saudi Arabia were used in Riyadh’s invasion of Yemen, even while denouncing the conflict publicly. Ottawa is being sued by Daniel Turp, a Universite de Montreal professor, alleging that Canada’s $15 billion weapons-export deal with the kingdom is assisting with its involvement in Sana’a.

In a Montreal federal court, Canada is contending that the authority to decide what constitutes a legal weapons sale lies not with the court, but with Foreign Affairs Minister Stephane Dion. Ottawa maintains that this should be the case even if the country’s Light Armored Vehicles (LAVs) are used in a war responsible for the death of thousands of civilians.

In April, Dion admitted to pushing the Saudi weapons sale through, and told an editorial board that he acted with only one other minister and did not receive counsel from Prime Minister Justin Trudeau or other advisors.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Hey, Canadians; congrats for your country's government having become complicit in Saudi Arabia's genocidal war crimes in Yemen!

And just as with your corporate American brothers and sisters, it's "war profits uber alles!"

Doesn't it make you feel proud to be a Canadian?!?

The Saudi Arabian military has bombed marketplaces; schools; and hospitals with impunity, employing what may well be called a "scorched earth" approach.

It kind of reminds me of what the Catholic prelate said, during the siege of Montsegur in the campaign to exterminate the Cathars, when informed that there were women and children with the men who had taken refuge there.

And what he said was, "Kill them all; God will find his own."

And here is some of what the Canadian government's "contribution" to the Saudi war in Yemen may well have accomplished,and I warn you: these images are the most graphic you will see from this wretched generally unreported, war:

Images: Yemeni children wounded and killed by Saudi bombing

Images: Yemeni children starving to death due to the Saudi naval blockade

It is very much time for Canadian citizenry, as well as American citizenry, to have a peaceful, specific dialogue with your (alleged) representatives in Parliament or Congress, and telling them firmly that their governments have utterly no business, and no right, in partnering with countries which commit war crimes.

MEGA PUKE FACTOR 9 BEX ALERT - Russian hacks into Ukraine power grids a sign of things to come for U.S.?

President Obama is busy ramming through presidential pardons, passing mass executive orders, and vacationing in Hawaii in his last month as President of the United States.

[Corporate] Media is Dead!

We want to inform whoever is out there that our USG has acquired a nasty addiction of compulsive lying over and over again. The official mouthpiece for this Obama administration is not the WH Press Secretary, Josh Earnest, but the ancillary money-making machinery of CNN, MSNBC, Fox News, Comcast etc.

This conglomerate of pretty pictures and soundbites amount to loud noise signifying the opposite of reality. If one wants to really understand the events of our time, one must troll the internet for a compilation of impressions, both verbal and pictorial, which have a modicum of veracity. The “truth seeker” or conscientious teacher must work at extracting the truth. Yet, once established, those active in seeking the truth receive much cooperation from their fellow truthers around the world. Working for truth is not for everyone and let’s face it, some people are just too scared or too lazy or both.

Md. attorney general says nursing homes kicked out patients to boost Medicare payments

A nursing home operator in Maryland aggressively and illegally booted residents from its facilities to maximize payments it collected from public health plans and in many cases dropped the residents off at homeless shelters or inadequate living facilities, the state’s attorney general alleged in a sweeping lawsuit filed Wednesday in Montgomery County Circuit Court.

The lawsuit asserts that the firm, Neiswanger Management Services (NMS), was acutely aware of the reimbursement differences between federal Medicare and the lesser rates paid by Medicaid, which uses state and federal money to provide health coverage for low-income patients.

NMS’s motive, according to the attorney general: Leave bed space for new Medicare patients, who yield more than $500 a day in reimbursements, compared with roughly half that for Medicaid.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am certain that these kinds of practices, to earn more money for nursing home owners, go far beyond the state of Maryland.

I am also reasonably sure that Neiswanger Management Services had their legal folks go over the terms and conditions, regarding discharge of their clients, to the point where these practices just barely skated on the outskirts of "legal".

However, that being said, these practices are both immoral and inhumane.

Many of these patients may have been both physically and mentally disabled, and if they do not have at least one family member to strenuously advocate for them, can get dumped and shuttled into whatever hellholes at which they have been left, without ever being able to make a complaint to the outside world.

These older people who had this done to them were hidden; dumped; maltreated; and simply left to die.

At the end of the day, a society is judged by how it treats its most vulnerable; and among those most vulnerable are those who are no longer able to care for themselves, for whatever reason.

Our fragile elderly need to be treated with respect, kindness, and consistency of care, period, end of discussion; otherwise, we cannot, here in the US characterise ourselves as having a "civilised society".

HOW THE MILITARY EXCLUDED THE WHITE HOUSE FROM INTERNATIONAL SYRIA NEGOTIATIONS

Russia kicked the U.S. out of any further talks about Syria after the U.S. blew a deal which, after long delaying negotiations, Kerry had made with the Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov.

In a recent interview Kerry admits that it was opposition from the Pentagon, not Moscow or Damascus, that had blown up his agreement with Russia over Syria:

More recently, he has clashed inside the administration with Defense Secretary Ashton Carter. Kerry negotiated an agreement with Russia to share joint military operations, but it fell apart.

“Unfortunately we had divisions within our own ranks that made the implementation of that extremely hard to accomplish,” Kerry said. “But I believe in it, I think it can work, could have worked."

Kerry's agreement with Russia did not just "fell apart". The Pentagon actively sabotaged it by intentionally and perfidiously attacking the Syrian army.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I seem to recall noting last June, that there seemed to be a war going on in Obama's administration between the Pentagon and the White House: this article certainly appears to confirm it.

A rogue US military is a very dangerous thing; and in this period of transition, I cannot foretell what the Pentagon, coupled with the US "deep state" has in mind, to insure that President-elect Trump has a hot war on his hands even before he takes the oath of office, as their "gift" to him.

However, in that leaked memo about Trump's defense priorities, it is very reassuring to know that Russia was not mentioned.

So a short memo to Russia's President Vladimir Putin: please hang in there until Trump assumes the Presidency of the United States.

I have a strong sense that the relationship between our two countries is about to become a lot less stressed after this happens.

MAINSTREAM MEDIA ADMITS SYRIAN “REBELS” HAVE BEEN STARVING CIVILIANS IN ALEPPO

The mainstream media has surprisingly admitted that it is, in fact, the rebels in Aleppo who have been starving the city’s civilian population.

The rebel group in question is called Jaish al-Islam (or the Army of Islam in English). This is the same rebel group that has been documented carrying out ISIS-inspired executions, is intent on establishing sharia law in Syria, and cooperates and conducts attacks regularly with al-Qaeda. The group’s former leader has gone on record to say he will cleanse the region of Shi’ites, Alawites, and Zoroastrians. The organization has also been heavily suspected of using chemical weapons and shelling civilians.

It is for these reasons that Secretary of State John Kerry classified them as a subgroup of al-Qaeda, going off-script in the process.

But we’re still at war with al-Qaeda, aren’t we?

YAHOO EMAIL SCAN SHOWS U.S. SPY PUSH TO RECAST CONSTITUTIONAL PRIVACY

Yahoo Inc's secret scanning of customer emails at the behest of a U.S. spy agency is part of a growing push by officials to loosen constitutional protections Americans have against arbitrary governmental searches, according to legal documents and people briefed on closed court hearings.

The order on Yahoo from the secret Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) last year resulted from the government's drive to change decades of interpretation of the U.S. Constitution's Fourth Amendment right of people to be secure against "unreasonable searches and seizures," intelligence officials and others familiar with the strategy told Reuters.

The unifying idea, they said, is to move the focus of U.S. courts away from what makes something a distinct search and toward what is "reasonable" overall.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

At the moment, when I email, even though I am a Christian pacifist activist who never advocates violence, I am figuring that various US "Alphabet Soup" intelligence agencies are reading my posts, both on this website and Facebook; my emails; my texts; and occasionally listening in to my cell calls.

I am not being paranoid here; just pragmatic.

But what annoys me, personally, about this violent, and unscrupulous, blanket assault on my 4th Amendment guarantee against "unreasonable searches and seizures," is, I'm really not one of the "bad guys" they looking for!

I'm the director of my English-speaking church choir (we also have a Samoan speaking choir), and Mike and I are very active contributors to two food programs for the food insecure on Oahu through both my church and our sister Catholic church.

I would strongly suggest that the really "bad guys" who are actually intent on doing harm to this country are either so low tech that our security agencies cannot find them; or so brilliantly encrypted in their communications, that our security agencies also cannot find them.

And BTW, if any of those agents surveilling us who live on Oahu happen to sing and sight-read, I have a great church choir for you to join!! :-)

IRAN IS NOT THE BIGGEST NUCLEAR CHEATER — GUESS WHO IS

If you think Iran presents the greatest danger of nuclear war today, think again.

It is none other than the United States that has consistently violated the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty—and it’s these violations that are one of the main drivers of the spread of nuclear weapons and the threat of nuclear war across the world.

While some worry about inspecting Iran’s nuclear facilities, Americans should be pushing first for inspecting something nearer to home: the embarrassing and dangerous record of nuclear treaty violations committed by the US and its fellow nuclear states.

And there’s something else that bears closer inspection: how the mainstream media’s misreporting about nuclear armaments played a key role in justifying the Iraq war and other recent conflicts.

Why Social Security Is Doomed: “Birthrate At Lowest Level on Record”… And the Future Is Unfunded

Here’s more evidence that the “recovery” never really happened, and the entire social net structure is doomed to fall apart.

The birthrate, long tied to economic growth, has been dropping to its lowest point in recorded history.

This demographic shift is bad news for the economy – in terms of housing, consumer markets, and especially for the long-term funding of social security, medicaid, medicare and other obligations...

SYRIA AMBASSADOR REVEALS NAMES OF ALLEGED WESTERN/SAUDI/GCC INTELLIGENCE AGENTS TRAPPED IN EAST ALEPPO

After hearing about how Assad has “barrel bombed,” “tortured,” “burned alive,” and otherwise maimed civilians in East Aleppo (who are themselves committing mass suicide to evade Syrian government forces according to mainstream outlets), the real reason for the increase in hysteria has finally come to light.

The real reason for America’s concern is not because of civilians at all or even because of their terrorist proxies who will soon be totally annihilated in East Aleppo. It is because their own intelligence officers are stuck in East Aleppo, completely surrounded by Syrian military forces, and their capture will not only weaken the Western operation in the country, it will reveal to the world what most already know – that the U.S. and its allies are working hand-in-glove with the terrorists it claims are moderates.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why am I completely unsurprised by this development?!?

The leadership of those countries attempting to cause regime change in Damascus, is about to be named and shamed by the Syrian government, as well they should be.

And the agents who got stuck in Eastern Aleppo included nationals from the following countries: Turkey; the USA; Israel; Qatar; Saudi Arabia; and Morocco.

And bravo to Dr. al-Ja’afari, for maintaining such grace under pressure, in his explanation of what was really going on here.

The US government has lost its stated objective of regime change in Syria through its proxy jihadists; the only thing President Obama could do now, but only for the amount of time he has left in office, is to order boots on the ground in Syria, risking war with Russia over such an action.

Nearly 95% of all new jobs during Obama era were part-time, or contract

A new study by economists from Harvard and Princeton indicates that 94% of the 10 million new jobs created during the Obama era were temporary positions.
The study shows that the jobs were temporary, contract positions, or part-time "gig" jobs in a variety of fields.
Female workers suffered most heavily in this economy, as work in traditionally feminine fields, like education and medicine, declined during the era.
The research by economists Lawrence Katz of Harvard University and Alan Krueger at Princeton University shows that the proportion of workers throughout the U.S., during the Obama era, who were working in these kinds of temporary jobs, increased from 10.7% of the population to 15.8%.
Krueger, a former chairman of the White House Council of Economic Advisers, was surprised by the finding.
The disappearance of conventional full-time work, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. work, has hit every demographic. “Workers seeking full-time, steady work have lost,” said Krueger.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So much for Obama having left Trump his "legacy" of a "great economy"!!

The Berlin Truck Terror Suspect and the Curious Matter of ID Papers Left Behind

Today, WhoWhatWhy has seen heavy traffic coming from Google searches that point to a story we ran almost two years ago. Why the sudden interest? It took us only a moment to discover the connection: We had written about the odd phenomenon of terrorists repeatedly leaving ID papers behind at the scene. And now, with the Berlin truck attack, we see yet another such example.

We also see that, in a pattern we have previously reported on with other terror incidents, the suspect was already known to authorities — had even been in custody, but was released.
