Iran Urges UK To Rein In 'Deep State'; Germany Warns Of "Uncontrollable" Escalation

Iran’s ambassador in London warned on Sunday that the UK government must get its "domestic political forces" pushing for regime change under control or else the two countries will face dangerous escalation. The public statement came two days after the British-flagged Stena Impero was boarded and captured by IRGC commandos, and over two weeks after the tanker Grace 1 was seized by UK Royal Marines off Gibraltar.

Iranian Ambassador Hamid Baeidinejad urged via his personal Twitter account that continued pressure on Iran would be "unwise" given that Tehran stands “firm and ready for different scenarios”.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Iranian Ambassador Baeidinejad, I hear you; and I think that the time has come for both the British and US governments to open up intensive lines of communication between themselves, and your government, and right the heck now.

I would like to hope that your voice of reason finds "listening ears", and resonates in the Consulates of the the UK and US. The place where it most probably won't, is with the Israeli government and Saudi Arabia's monarchy.

War against your country would be incredibly stupid, on the part of the US, Israel, Saudi Arabia, and the UK, in light of a Russian statement made by a high ranking diplomat at a symposium, indicating that if Iran were attacked, she would not be alone.

U.N. Sanctions Cut North Korea’s Trade Volume in Half

A report published Friday by the Korea Trade-Investment Promotion Agency (KOTRA), an organization funded by the government of South Korea, showed that North Korea’s trade volume was cut in half during 2018, evidently as a result of sanctions imposed by the United Nations Security Council.
The KOTRA report showed North Korea’s trade volume falling to $2.84 billion in 2018, a 48.8 percent decline from the previous year. Exports fell by a dizzying 86.3 percent, imports declined 31.2 percent, and the North Korean trade deficit rose by 17.5 percent.

The Korea Times cited the specific U.N. Security Council resolutions that appeared to deflate North Korea’s trade volume so sharply, saying:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Yikes; considering the degree to which these US sanctions have crippled North Korea's economy, can one blame its leadership, for being not terribly talkative about peace and denuclearization right now?!?

And as adding more salt into the wound, Secretary Mike Pompeo has just completely disregarded North Korea's charges regarding more military drills with South Korea: Pompeo rejects North Korean charges on Military Drills

The article goes on to state: "North Korea’s Foreign Ministry spokesman said on Tuesday Trump had reaffirmed in a meeting with Kim last month that joint exercises would be halted and the U.S. decision to forge ahead with them was “clearly a breach” of the two leaders’ agreements at a summit in Singapore last year.

The spokesman said this was putting a resumption of nuclear talks with the United States at risk and the ministry said Washington’s pattern of “unilaterally reneging on its commitments” was leading Pyongyang to reconsider its commitment to discontinue tests of nuclear weapons and intercontinental ballistic missiles."

Mr. President, you have GOT to seriously understand what you want here, and allow that to stand, looking at how some "good faith efforts" on the part of the US government might make this doable.

The only alternative here, is war with North Korea, which would most probably pull in China as well; not a great option.

74 Palestinians injured in clashes with Israeli soldiers in eastern Gaza

A Palestinian protester uses a slingshot to hurl stones at Israeli troops during clashes on the Gaza-Israel border, east of Gaza City, July 19, 2019. At least 74 Palestinians were injured on Friday during clashes with Israeli soldiers stationed on the border between eastern Gaza Strip and Israel, medics said. (Str/Xinhua)

GAZA, July 19 (Xinhua) -- A total of 74 Palestinian demonstrators were injured during clashes with Israeli soldiers in the eastern Gaza Strip on Friday, the Health Ministry in Gaza said.

Among the injured were two journalists and four field paramedics, a ministry report said, adding 36 were injured by Israeli soldiers' gunfire.

According to local media, around 6,000 demonstrators gathered on Friday afternoon in eastern Gaza close to the border with Israel.

It was the 67th weekly anti-Israel protest, better known as the Great March of Return rally which started in late March last year.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unfortunately, "Normalization with the Occupier" (Israel) is just about to get as real as the Palestinians can imagine, and that is a very dark future, indeed.

Expulsion, relocation, death and misery are precisely what the Israel government wants to see happen.

And Jared Kushner's "Deal of the Century" is already DOA with Palestinian leadership, because it does not recoginise the legitimacy, or the national aspirations of the Palestinian people in any real way.


Jared Kushner's 'deal of the century' fails to materialise in Bahrain

And to Palestinian leadership, just a note, please; if you are throwing rocks at Israeli forces, you are giving them the justification to shoot back with live ammo and teargas.

I am a Christian Pacifist Activist, who hopes that this "Gordian Knot" can be resolved through negotiation, rather than violence; but as a realist, I understand that there are certain Israelis who would much prefer to see Palestinians dead, rather than give them a "seat at the table", working toward an honest, reconciling of those issues of nationality and the existence of a Palestinian state, rather than continue with this brutal war of attrition.

New Jersey lawmakers are trying to amend the state’s discrimination laws to equate criticism of Israel with antisemitism

?
?
?
?
?
Lawmakers in New Jersey have introduced an antisemitism bill that would prohibit certain criticism of Israel in public schools and universities. The proposed legislation comes on the heels of similar bills being passed in South Carolina and Florida. Last year, the Department of Education adopted a new definition of antisemitism to include criticism of Israel.

SB 4001 was introduced on June 24 by Senate President Stephen Sweeney and Sen. Robert Singer. It aims to ensure that antisemitism is treated the same way as other forms of discrimination by amending state law. However, the bill equates criticism of Israel with antisemitism in a number of places including:

-[D]emonizing Israel by using the symbols and images associated with classic anti-Semitism to characterize Israel or Israeli people, drawing comparisons of contemporary Israeli policy to that of the Nazis, or blaming Israel for all interreligious or political tensions;

Webmaster's Commentary: 

WOW, looks like Senate President Stephen Sweeney and Sen. Robert Singer, are down-rev on their contributions from AIPAC , and are hoping to "sweeten their election pots" by riding high on this legislation.

In the pursuit of war, the first casualty is truth.

When reasonable, legitimate, and logical criticism of Israel is denied by American legislators, this means we are quickly sliding down that heavily greased poll, at maximum velocity, of "Whatever Israel Wants, Israel Gets", be it weapons, wars against alleged "existential enemies", or other atrocities, at the expense of the American people.

And please remember: the Symington Amendment makes it ILLEGAL to give any aid, weapons, or money to countries which refuse to join the NNPT (as Israel consistently refuses to do), and have their weapons sites inspected (as Israel consistently refuses to do).

The Symington Amendment

So Why does Israel get a pass, while other countries, which HAVE signed the NNPT, like Iran, get demonized?!?

That's what is so thoroughly maddening to those of us who expect this country to follow the "Rule of Law", rather than the Rule of Consistent Exceptions to those laws.....by certain "favored nations."

IF this legislation is passed (and I would almost certainly expect it to), I hope it goes right on up to the Supreme Court, as a real attack against both the Constitution, and Bill of Rights.

The Decline of Our Nation’s Generals

Now a new JCS chairman is about to take office. Compared with the headlines generated by the “squad” of House progressives who have attracted the ire of both Speaker Nancy Pelosi and President Donald Trump, the process of installing General Mark Milley in this once-important post has received negligible attention.

It would be useful to know if General Milley’s grasp of war has advanced beyond Colonel Milley’s.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Damn; is this the best and brightest out there President Trump could have nominated?!?

The answer, unfortunately, is a resounding "Hell, NO"!!!!

Jeffrey Epstein Allegedly Bankrolled Ex-Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak’s Tech Startup, Israel Media Reports

Ehud Barak, who defeated Benjamin Netanyahu in a 1999 election to become Israel's prime minister, has been linked to convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.

Less than three weeks after announcing that he will come out of political retirement to challenge Benjamin Netanyahu for prime minister in the upcoming Israeli elections, as YNet News reported, former prime minister Ehud Barak is facing allegations that he is financially tied to convicted sex offender and shadowy financier Jeffrey Epstein.

Epstein pleaded guilty in 2008 to a sexual offense with a 14-year-old girl, and was arrested again on July 6 on new sex trafficking charges. Barak, a former lieutenant general in Israel’s army, served as Israel’s 10th prime minister from 1999 to 2001, after defeating Netanyahu, who was then serving his first term as Israeli PM.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Apparently, the "Epstein Sludgeomania" continues to ooze out into every orifice of Israel's political consciousness, courtesy of this Prime Minister's alleged contacts with Epstein.

Another Hoax, Man Says he Did Not Tell Black Rep ‘Go Back Where You Came From’

The man accused of telling a black Democrat representative to “go back to where you came from” has told his side of the story and says the accusations are not true.

Eric Sparkes, who said he is a Democrat and is Cuban, said that the two did have a confrontation and he called her a “b*tch” but he did not say what Rep. Erica Thomas said he did.

“That’s all I said after that, and I walked out of Publix,” Sparkes said. “Her words stating on [Facebook] in her video, stating I told her she needs to go back where she came from are untrue.”

San Francisco's Hidden Homeless

Over the last several months, cities and counties across California have been releasing homeless counts. The results have been grim.

San Francisco was no exception. In May, the city released data that showed homelessness had jumped 17%. That was bad enough. Last week, a more complete accounting, known as a point-in-time count, showed the problem was even worse.

The count revealed that homelessness in a city that’s become a caricature of wealth inequality in the U.S. had actually increased by about 30% from 2017, when the last count took place.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As a native San Franciscan, this breaks my heart; how could a city with so much intellectual, artistic, and social capital be one the worst for our nations' homeless?!?

The Infiltration of the Truth Movement

Has the truth movement been infiltrated? That is the question explored in the following. In general, the question drew us toward the truth, in all respects, not the rigid answers that have been accepted and pushed blindly by the masses.

Likely, if you are reading these words, you are a truth rebel, you dare to question the status quo. Shining our light into all the darkness, even within ourselves, is the hardest task, but one with the greatest potential for making ourselves and the world a better place. Shall we begin?

How important is the truth? What power does it have to make our lives better? Can it make us happier, more fulfilled?

For most, the answer is yes — and no.

HACKERS BREACH FSB CONTRACTOR, EXPOSE TOR DEANONYMIZATION PROJECT AND MORE

SOURCE: ZDNET.COM
Hackers have breached SyTech, a contractor for FSB, Russia's national intelligence service, from where they stole information about internal projects the company was working on behalf of the agency -- including one for deanonymizing Tor traffic.

The breach took place last weekend, on July 13, when a group of hackers going by the name of 0v1ru$ hacked into SyTech's Active Directory server from where they gained access to the company's entire IT network, including a JIRA instance.

Hackers stole 7.5TB of data from the contractor's network, and they defaced the company's website with a "yoba face," an emoji popular with Russian users that stands for "trolling."

Hackers posted screenshots of the company's servers on Twitter and later shared the stolen data with Digital Revolution, another hacking group who last year breached Quantum, another FSB contractor.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The larger question is, to what country is this hacker's group going to sell or share this data?!?

US TO LAUNCH PLAN FOR 'FREE PASSAGE' OF SHIPS IN IRAN'S WATERWAY

SOURCE: ALJAZEERA.COM

Aspen, Colorado - The United States is concerned that a "miscalculation" by Iran could cause an "unintended conflict" in the Gulf, as it prepares to launch a new surveillance and intelligence initiative with its allies to ensure "free and open passage" for ships.

"We are starting a concept called Sentinel in which we will have a series of countries engaged to preserve the free and open passage of commerce in the Strait of Hormuz and in the Persian Gulf," US Under Secretary of Defense for Policy John Rood said at the Aspen Security Forum on Saturday.

The US has had discussions with NATO allies, some "partners in the Gulf" and others to join the effort to keep the "vital waterway" open, said Rood, adding that the new operation would "come into being over the coming days and weeks".

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Please excuse me, US Under Secretary of Defense for Policy John Rood; but which of our "partners" have stepped forward to create "a coalition of the willing" here?!?

Back in May of this year, Europe told the US to "count them out" as tensions between the US and Iran started to simmer.

War With Iran? Count Us Out, Europe Says

Apparently, you "did not get the memo", from a story breaking just this last Friday, about the US's allies not wanting to create a naval force against Iran, because it might well worsen tensions: Allies resist US call for anti-Iran naval force, fearing it would worsen tensions.

And just one day ago, we had the following story break: A War with Iran Would Wreck the American Energy Market.

The Trump administration needs to do some serious soul-searching as it relates to how it thinks about energy as a whole.
by Connor Sutherland

What seems to be happening here, is that the US has become pathologically incapable, in large part due to Israel's continued (false) accusations of Iran being an existential threat, rather than an economic threat, of making credible, sensible long-term commitments to the energy sector of its economy.

And unless, and until that happens, President Trump is very contentedly putting the US on the keening edge of a war against Iran.

I mean, whatever Israel wants, Israel gets, right, Mr. President?!?

Even if this means a war with Russia, right, Mr. President?!?

And I do not know if any of your aides told you this, but back last month, toward the end of June, a top Russian diplomat made the following statement.
Iran ‘Won’t Be Alone’ If U.S. Attacks, Russian Official Says

The guy's name, just in case no one happened to mention it, is Zamir Kabulov, the Foreign Ministry’s special envoy for Asian countries including Iran, and he said this, at a Russian-Iranian policy forum in Moscow.

You're welcome, Mr. President.

And please, for the zillionth time: the US military does not have the weaponry; the troop strength; the manufacturing, or the money, to create a positive outcome to a war against Iran.

You need some people around you, who do not say, "Yes, Mr. President" when you happen, or any of your advisors, like Bolton, or Pompeo, go off half-cocked, in declaring which countries we are going to fight next, or decide that a war against this or that entity, would be "a good thing", because you have been prevailed upon to not think of the costs of war, even if the US does prevail, which, in most cases, would be both difficult and financially costly, to a nation already drowning in $+/- 23 trillion in debt.

Mr. President, you really need some people around you who will tell you the dark, ugly truth about new potential wars in the Middle East and beyond; and I will guarantee you, that two of those people are NOT your "BFFs in the Middle East, Prince Mohammed Bin Salman, the Butcher of Yemen or Israel's Netanyahu, the Butcher of Gaza, who desperately needs to distract Israel's voters from the corruption charges via a massive US/Saudi invasion of Iran,due to a snap election in September.

I would politely suggest, that you need to contact some Veterans, who have participated in the US wars against Afghanistan, and Iraq; And sir, what I am thinking, is that you will better be able to separate "the grain from the chaff", after these private, one-on- one conversations are held.

And again, you are welcome. Mr. President.

EL CHAPO ARRIVES AT SUPERMAX PRISON AFTER 'DISAPPEARING' FOR TWO DAYS

SOURCE: ZEROHEDGE

Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán, leader of the Sinaloa drug cartel, has arrived at the federal supermax prison in Florence, Colorado to serve out a sentence of life plus 30 years handed down on Wednesday. He was also ordered to pay $12.6 billion in restitution.

For two days, the 62-year-old Guzmán's whereabouts remained unknown - even to his lawyers, after federal authorities removed him from the Metropolitan Correctional Center (MCC) in lower Manhattan - described by the drug kingpin as "total torture" due to a lack of 'fresh air, clean water and sunlight.'

Late Friday afternoon, however, the Bureau of Prisons confirmed that he had been transferred to the Colorado prison (ADX), where he will live in a 7' x 12' concrete cell with a television (for good behavior) and a 4-inch window to the world for 23 hours per day, according to the New York Times.

A BANK WITH $49 TRILLION IN DERIVATIVES EXPOSURE IS MELTING DOWN BEFORE OUR EYES

SOURCE: ZEROHEDGE

Authored by Michael Snyder via The Economic Collapse blog,

Could it be possible that we are on the verge of the next “Lehman Brothers moment”?

It takes a lot to rattle Wall Street.

But Deutsche Bank managed to. The beleaguered German giant announced on July 7 that it is laying off 18,000 employees—roughly one-fifth of its global workforce—and pursuing a vast restructuring plan that most notably includes shutting down its global equities trading business.

Though Deutsche’s Bloody Sunday seemed to come out of the blue, it’s actually the culmination of a years-long—some would say decades-long—descent into unprofitability and scandal for the bank, which in the early 1990s set out to make itself into a universal banking powerhouse to rival the behemoths of Wall Street.

These moves may delay Deutsche Bank’s inexorable march into oblivion, but not by much.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This well could have a "domino effect" on US financial markets; the only question left now, is; when?!?
