Bayer Stock Nosedives After Jury Finds Monsanto Guilty of Covering Up Cancer Risks

For those who’ve for years been fighting Monsanto, affectionately known as the world’s most evil corporation, a San Francisco jury’s decision last Friday to fine the company $289 million is earth-shattering news. Apparently financial markets and analysts agree.

Cooperate Or Die: In Private Meeting, Top Facebook Exec Threatened News Outlets

During a closed-door and off-the-record meeting last week, top Facebook executive Campbell Brown reportedly warned news publishers that refusal to cooperate with the tech behemoth's efforts to "revitalize journalism" will leave media outlets dying "like in a hospice."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is why the independent media is really important right now, and so worthy of support, both informationally and financially.

Because Brown's call to "revitalize journalism", is nothing more than a not so subtle, in your face threat, that the presstitutes and whorespondents can be broken, forever, by not adhering completely to the narrative of the nation-state, and any countering argument to that narrative must be ground down into the dirt, permanently and immediately.

So no, Mr. Brown: WRH refuses to do this, and we have suffered intensely from the financial, social, and intellectual stigmas associated with not carrying the Unhinged, Surveilled State of Amerika's water for it.

Yes, the siren song of the money, and opportunities available after becoming "the US Deep State's bitch" can still be heard, sotto voce; but just like listening to the song of a mermaid, trying to lure a sailor to their death, when you understand how completely expendable ordinary working people are to the inner workings of the monied who rule this country, the ethical costs of such a switch in perspective, are simply too great to bear.

Twitter To "Suspend Accounts For Trying To Evade Suspension"

Having seemingly distracted the world, briefly, from being caught 'shadowbanning' conservatives (or should we say "using quality filters"), by outright-banning other right-leaning individuals (Alex Jones and Peter van Buren forever; and Candace Owen and Ron Paul Institute's Daniel McAdams temporarily), it appears Twitter's CEO Jack Dorsey has a cunning plan for purging the rest of the world's naysayers from his platform.

"This week, we are suspending accounts for attempting to evade an account suspension. These accounts were previously suspended for abusive behavior or evading a previous suspension, and are not allowed to continue using Twitter."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

With the next month, I am hoping that people, not wanting to have their websites chosen for them, with others are suppressed, will be flocking to alternatives to twitter, and that this will render Twitter thoroughly... irrelevant.

Korean Leaders Agree to New September Summit in Pyongyang

Following two hours of meetings between top North and South Korean officials on Monday, the two sides announced that an agreement has been reached to hold a third summit in September. The summit will be in Pyongyang, though the exact date has not been announced.

Kim Jong-un and Moon Jae-in first met in April in the demilitarized zone, and then held a more informal summit in late May. At the time, officials on both sides suggested more summits were likely in the future.

As with the late May summit, this one comes amid signs that US-North Korea diplomacy is stumbling. South Korea has been advising the US on how to make progress, though often the US has rejected proposals that involve making any concessions.

North Korea is known to want a peace deal ending the 1950 Korean War, and the US is seen as resistant to the idea. The South Korean government has been pretty open about wanting peace too, however, and may try to get the process moving irrespective of US reticence.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The one thing both Koreas should do, and immediately, is reunify, putting an end to US threats and meddling in the region.

Once Korea is reunified, the US government cannot but treat it as a sovereign, undivided country, unless it characterizes the whole place 'a newly minted rogue nation.", and go after it as a whole entity.

And the optics on such a move would be horrifically awful.

US Dropped Mutual Assurances of Non-Meddling from Helsinki Declaration – Reports

The United States rejected a Russian offer to include mutual assurances of non-interference in polls from a proposed joint declaration at the Helsinki summit, media said.

Russia suggested adding a clause that would call cyberattacks on critical infrastructure – power grids, water pumps, banks and hospitals – unacceptable, three Russian and US officials told the Kommersant newspaper.

Sources said Moscow had proposed "joint measures to prevent the use of cyberspace to destabilize internal political processes, including elections." The United States initially agreed to sign the joint declaration but then rowed back on it.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Please note that it was the US government which rejected such language.

Antifa Vows “Bullets” For Political Enemies; Media Ignores Threat

Far left group’s open incitement to violence gets zero press coverage.

The mainstream media completely failed to report on Antifa members in DC yesterday, some of whom went on to assault police officers, carrying a banner which openly advertised their intention to put bullets in their political enemies.

Numerous video clips and photos show Antifa members carrying a large black banner which reads, “It takes a bullet to bash a fash.”

In another clip, leftists are asked what they would do if they met President Trump.

“I would murder him,” answered one, while another said, “We’d have to do him like Gaddafi.”

I asked leftist progressives outside the White House today what they would do if they met President Trump.
Their answers:
•"I would murder him."
•"We'd have to do him like Gaddafi."
•"If I get a chance to fuck him up I would."
•"Beat his ass."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

At 69 years of age, and a Christian composer, conductor, and pacifist activist, I am thoroughly astonished to see how far the left in this country is willing to play out the violence card.

And in looking this story up, because in clicking the title (and from a lot of resources) I got a "404 Error"; item not found.

The fact that it has been pulled from so many sources had to be a deliberate act by our "thought police", but I ultimately found the article nonetheless, at prisonplanet.com

Although there are times when I grouse about not finding enough talent here on the island to get my musical works recorded well, or heard here, right now, I am very grateful to Heaven that Mike and I are here rather than living on the mainland; were we there, we probably would have been assassinated by now.

And no, I am not kidding about that.

Hawaii is a very blue state, but people here can talk about politics, but not tear each others' hair out in the process, even when we do think differently about it; that is a real blessing.

Remarkable Video and Ground Report of New Mexico ‘Known Wolf’ Terror Camp…

NBC Journalist Gadi Schwartz filed a remarkable ground report about the New Mexico terror camp. While reporting on the compound in Northern New Mexico, where children were believed to have been trained on how to carry out school shootings, Mr. Schwartz was given rare access and permission to tour the area by the rightful owner of the property.

We often find ourselves critical of MSM; however, this is one of those examples of a journalist filing a great report.

Brazil seizes 1.3 tonnes of cocaine on Italian ship reportedly attacked by pirates

Brazilian authorities said on Monday August 13th that they seized 1.32 metric tonnes (2,910 pounds) of cocaine aboard an Italian-flagged ship in Brazil's main port of Santos, near Sao Paulo.

"The drugs were divided into 1,202 tablets distributed in 41 sacks" in two containers on the Grande Francia ship, which had arrived from Argentina, the customs department said.

According to G1 news site, the ship was attacked by pirates on Sunday. However it was unclear whether the incident was connected to the drugs discovery.

Amazon is BANNED from promising that paying £79 a year for Prime will get customers next-day delivery on all items after 'misleading' online buyers

The Amazon Prime service was set up on the basis that customers would pay a single annual fee or subscription - £79 - to get one day delivery on millions of purchases.

How The US Government Legally Stole Millions From Kim Dotcom

About a month ago we covered the basics of the lawsuit by which the US government was seeking to keep pretty much all of Kim Dotcom’s assets, despite the fact that Dotcom himself hasn’t been tried — and, in fact, it hasn’t even been determined if he can be extradited to the United States (a country he’s never visited). This week, that case took another step, with the judge, Liam O’Grady, who had already ruled that Kim Dotcom could be considered a “fugitive,” more or less finalizing the theft of Dotcom’s assets by declaring a default judgment in favor of the US. This isn’t the end of the process (not by a longshot), but it highlights just how the US government can use some ridiculous procedures to steal millions in assets from someone who hasn’t been shown to be guilty of anything.

The Real Reasons Peter Strzok was Fired from the FBI

There are certainly more than just the anti-Trump text messages sent by former FBI Special Agent Peter Strzok that led the second in command at the FBI to fire him. FBI Deputy Director David Bowdich actually overruled a recommendation by the bureau’s Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR) to suspend and demote the former senior agent, and instead, terminated Strzok on Friday.

Former FBI special agents, some of whom worked with OPR for years, said they agree with Bodwich’s decision. They told SaraACarter.com that the system is broken and Bodwich had no other choice but to step in and fire Strzok. They say political leanings, friendships and dual systems of justice inside OPR have plagued how cases regarding FBI agents are adjudicated and handled.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am hoping and praying that President Trump will absolutely fire everyone in the FBI who has not lived up to their Oath to Congress, and will replace them with people who will do that, and right the heck now!!

2016 Trump Tower Meeting Looks Increasingly Like a Setup by Russian and Clinton Operatives

The June 2016 Trump Tower meeting between high-ranking members of the Republican presidential campaign staff and a Russian lawyer with Kremlin ties remains the cornerstone of claims that Donald Trump colluded with Russia to steal the election.

A growing body of evidence, however, indicates that the meeting may have been a setup -- part of a broad effort to tarnish the Trump campaign involving Hillary Clinton operatives employed by Kremlin-linked figures and Department of Justice officials. This view, that the real collusion may have taken place among those who arranged the meeting rather than the Trump officials who agreed to attend it, is supported by two disparate lines of evidence pulled together for the first time here: newly released records and a pattern of efforts to connect the Trump campaign to Russia.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And we have a companion piece to this, also from whatdoesitmean.com, with the headline reading as follows;

RUDY GIULIANI: EX-CIA DIRECTOR JOHN BRENNAN IS BEHIND THE ENTIRE INVESTIGATION

JUDGE ORDERS RELEASE OF ‘MUSLIM SCHOOL SHOOTING TRAINING CAMP’ SUSPECTS AFTER CHARGES OF RACISM

Judge Sarah Backus ordered the release of five suspects accused of running a “school shooting training camp” after one of their attorneys said they’re only being targeted because they’re “black and Muslim,” as opposed to “white and Christian.”

“Many people here live in unconventional ways,” Judge Baukus said.

“The NRA right now are telling us that guns are a good thing and that we should be training our teenagers to go ahead and use them, but now that we have someone who’s actually do that, and they’re not white, and they’re not Christian we think there’s some nefarious plan,” one of the suspects other attorneys told the media outside the court.

From CNN:

The evidence was intended to paint a disturbing picture of a zealous family training for a violent mission against government institutions, New Mexico prosecutors said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

How about the one dead kid, and the 11 starving children?!?

No crimes here, right, Judge Sarah Backus?!? Starvation and murder are not crimes against minor children in this country, if the family is Muslim, right?!?

With this release from prison by this Judge, one has to speculate if this guy wasn't hired by elements of the Deep State to teach his kids to do school shootings, as a way of imposing a total and complete gun ban on American citizens.

I fully expect all charges here to be dropped; the guy got caught before he could finish his intended work, and the case will no longer see the light of day in the media.

CENSORSHIP IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN POWERFUL PEOPLE GET SCARED

Anyone who tells you the recent escalation of censorship by U.S. tech giants is merely a reflection of private companies making independent decisions is either lying or dangerously ignorant.

In the case of Facebook, the road from pseudo-platform to willing and enthusiastic tool of establishment power players is fairly straightforward. It really got going earlier this year when issues surrounding egregious privacy violations in the case of Cambridge Analytica (stuff that had been going on for years) could finally be linked to the Trump campaign. It was at this point that powerful and nefarious forces spotted an opportunity to leverage the company’s gigantic influence in distributing news and opinion for their own ends. Rather than hold executives to account and break up the company, the choice was made to commandeer and weaponize the platform. This is where we stand today.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is only one thing to do with the unholy triumverate of Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube: ignore them as though they were the plague, and take a look at their upcoming competitors, like GAB! Yandex, and DuckDuckGo.

This is not to say that ultimately, these outlets won't get bought out, but at least for the time being, they are reasonably open, and don't track where you have been on these sites.

Ajit Pai loses in court—FCC can’t kill broadband subsidy in Tribal areas

A US appeals court has blocked the Federal Communications Commission's attempt to take a broadband subsidy away from Tribal areas.

The FCC decision, originally slated to take effect later this year, would have made it difficult or impossible for Tribal residents to obtain a $25-per-month Lifeline subsidy that reduces the cost of Internet or phone service for poor people. But on Friday, a court stayed the FCC decision pending appeal, saying that Tribal organizations and small wireless carriers are likely to win their case against the commission.

AN 11-YEAR-OLD HACKED A MOCK FLORIDA ELECTION SITE IN 10 MINUTES

The security of the U.S. election system just lost a vote of confidence.

At the annual hacker conference DefCon, Emmett Brewer, an 11-year-old boy from Austin, Texas, was able to change the results on a mock Florida election website. It took him 10 minutes.

Though the website in question was a mere replica of the Florida Secretary of State website, the hack points to the larger vulnerabilities of the election infrastructure in the U.S. On the heels of Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. election, Microsoft has already detected evidence of Russian interference in three races in the 2018 mid-terms.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It took this 11 year old kid 10 minutes to change the outcome of a mock-up of Florida's electronic voting system?!?

Folks, if we ever need to give these voting machines the deep-six, and restore paper ballots, now is the time.

And particularly in the upcoming midterms, we cannot allow Voter ID to be considered criminal, in any way, shape, or form!!

THERE'S A FENTANYL CRISIS IN THE UNITED STATES. NEBRASKA IS ABOUT TO MURDER SOMEONE WITH IT ON PURPOSE

If only "states with the death penalty spent half as much time developing policy to support people in their lives as they did figuring out ways to kill people"

As Nebraska prepares to complete its first state-sanctioned execution in two decades, human rights groups are condemning the death penalty and denouncing officials for operating under a "cloak of secrecy" in obtaining the drugs that will be used to kill Carey Dean Moore—substances that have caused tens of thousands of accidental deaths across the U.S. in recent years.

Amnesty International denounced the state's move to participate in "the ultimate denial of human rights" after having carried out no executions since 1997.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF you have never seen the film "Dead Man Walking", featuring Susan Sarandon as Sister Prejean, and Sean Penn as the guy about to be executed, please do yourself a favor, and record it/buy it. If you still think that summary execution for murderers, even in the most "kind and humanitarian way possible" is absolutely the right thing to do, this movie.... just may change your mind and heart, particularly if you are a brother or sister Christian.

This Catholic nun has been one of the most ardent activists against the death penalty in the United States, and I have absolute utter respect for her.

I do not believe in executions for murder, and before you label me a namby-pamby leftist sychophant on this issue, I would like to politely remind you, that the chain of evidence in this country is horrifically vulnerable to misuse, neglect, and damage.

If you don't believe me, take a look at what The Innocence Project in Texas is doing.

The Innocence Project

For murder, I would suggest a national standard of life imprisonment with zero possibility of parole; these people cannot be allowed to kill again.

OH LOOK, YET MORE EFFORTS TO STRANGLE BROADBAND COMPETITION

A major component of the Telecommunications Act of 1996 was the idea of line sharing, or local loop unbundling. Simply put, the rules set forth required that incumbent telcos needed to share their networks with smaller competitors, providing wholesale access to bandwidth. It was an effort to foster something vaguely resembling competition in the broadband space by letting smaller companies piggyback on existing network infrastructure. The thought was that because the barriers to market entry were so high (both politically and financially), this could help smaller competitors gain footholds that would otherwise be impossible.

The effort didn't work out for several reasons.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Here on Oahu, we are stuck with Spectrum, which promises much, in those multi-million commercials, featuring the voice of the comedian, Ellen De Generes, but actually delivers very little of what it promises.

When cable companies do not have to compete, they don't have to give a damn about the true quality of their service, or if there is even a modicum of public satisfaction with it.

VENEZUELAN PIRATES SPREAD FEAR ACROSS THE CARIBBEAN

Vessels sailing in the vicinity of Trinidad and Tobago are now under threat of being the victims of piracy for the first since the 1700s. According to a report from the Washington Post, in the wake of Venezuela’s economic and societal collapse, criminals desperate to earn a living have taken up the centuries-old crime and are attacking yachts and fishing vessels along the coast of South America.

Jeremy McDermott of Insight Crime, a nonprofit that studies organized crime in the region told the Washington Post that “It’s criminal chaos, a free-for-all, along the Venezuelan coast.”

“This reminds me of how the problems started off the coast of eastern Africa," said Roodal Moonilal, a politician from Trinidad and Tobago while speaking to the Washington Post. “What we’re seeing – the piracy, the smuggling – it’s the result of Venezuela’s political and economic collapse.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Forgive my cynicism here, but I have to wonder if this violence has perhaps been "underwritten" by the American Deep State in some way, so that unthinking American s will cheer when the Marines go into the region to "clear this up", and ultimately invade the country (with one of the largest oil reserves on the planet) in order to "save it from itself."

For the second time this year, Facebook removed TeleSUR English's page without an explanation beyond claiming the media network had violated the platform's terms of service. (Photo: TeleSUREnglish/Twitter)

For the second time this year, Facebook has suspended teleSUR English's page, claiming the left-leaning Latin American news network violated the social media platform's terms of service without any further explanation—a move that provoked outrage and concern among journalists, free speech advocates, and Big Tech critics.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would politely suggest that all of us, when confronted with this electronic shunning of a site we believe should be up there, even if we may pointedly disagree with its content, should be emailing Facebook, and asking specifically what "terms of service" were violated by that site.

If ALL of us do this, it will at least put Facebook on notice; perhaps (peacefully) overwhelming its servers would make the point.

But in light that this station originates in Venezuela, and the US government doesn't want anything but the "US Official Narrative" to be heard by both English and Spanish-speaking people, one wonders; after the colossal flub of its attempting to murder Maduros via drone strike, what other "pleasantries" the US government has in store for him and the Venezuelan people, and soon?!?

RUSSIAN MILITARY SPY SOFTWARE IS ON HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF HOME ROUTERS

The Russian military is inside hundreds of thousands of routers owned by Americans and others around the world, a top U.S. cybersecurity official said on Friday. The presence of Russian malware on the routers, first revealed in May, could enable the Kremlin to steal individuals’ data or enlist their devices in a massive attack intended to disrupt global economic activity or target institutions.

On May 27, Justice Department officials asked Americans to reboot their routers to stop the attack. Afterwards, the world largely forgot about it. That’s a mistake, said Rob Joyce, senior advisor to the director of the National Security Agency and the former White House cybersecurity coordinator.

“The Russian malware is still there,” said Joyce.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Yet more demonization of Russia here in the US?!?

Because IF this is real, it appears to primarily be a problem for routers in Ukraine.

So then, how, please, did it become a problem for American computers, and what US agencies tasked with protecting Americans from this kind of problem, have failed the American people (yet again)?!?

What happens when the police become arbitrary and oppressive? The next step is a police state which puts all power in the hands of government instead of the people. Are you ready for that?

No one is coming to save us

If you’re waiting for someone to save you from the tidal wave of corporate censorship, government authoritarianism and deranged left-wing violence, you’re following a mirage. No one is coming to save you. If you want to live as a free person in a free world, you’re going to have to demand it, fight for it and secure it.

Lockheed Martin will design, test and support the production of the weapon, according to a US Air Force statement

The Great Potential in Artificial Intelligence (And the Evil)

Although it is easy to conjure up images of how artificial intelligence will result in robots that can take over the world, such a possibility in the near future is remote. And if robots get that smart, with super robot physical capabilities and their own, or programmed, value scales, then we would have something very serious to worry about. But, mini-robots with narrow bad actor artificial intelligence could be a problem at even an earlier date.It would be kind of an alien invasion from within. The likeliest place for such dangerous
robot development is, of course, in the military.

Conclusion after 18 years working with both political party ‘leaderships’: US is a lying, looting, illegal neocolonial rogue state empire pimped by corporate media and public education, with zero improvement possible until .01% arrests

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

US political, media, and education “leaders” are liars with criminal complicity of neocolonial crimes annually killing millions, harming billions, and looting trillions as .01% parasites manipulate to control and profit from Earth’s resources (natural and human).

No improvement is possible without .01% arrests after an Emperor’s New Clothes public awakening.

Let’s consider:
1. My testimony of a front seat to this tragic-comic parasitism.
2. Documented data to explain and prove my factual claims.

What I witnessed of US “leadership”

From 1980 to 1997 I was a volunteer with RESULTS.org for US domestic and foreign policy to end poverty. Our work started in Southern California, I took it to Northern California as a UC Berkeley student, and we expanded to over 100 US communities, seven countries, and were leading voices for two UN summits for heads of state (details documented here). My observations include:

What’s really going on when you hear the words ‘public policy’

When politicians and bureaucrats talk about democracy and public policy, they speak with a forked tongue. They want you to believe that these terms refer to personal liberty. They do not, and the politician knows that they do not. They know that they refer to the police power and enforcement of state authority over the individual. They are code words for government force.

The Federal Reserve: Secretly Sticking It To Americans For Over 100 Years

Of course the central bankers will tell us that secrecy is important for “maintaining independence” and “security” of the markets. These claims that there is a legitimate need for secrecy would be slightly more credible if it were for a limited time. -- That is not the case, however. The Fed is, in many regards, a virtual black box which shall remain closed for all time, at least if officials continue to have their way. -- The most “interesting” works of the Wall Street elites in power there will never be published or examined. It is considered vital the public never knows about certain activities. -- There is only one reason for that level of secrecy: We might object.

George Orwell Warned Us Of The Most Dangerous Type Of Censorship

The end result of this type of censorship, however, quite likely will not bring about the feared Soviet-style clampdown on ideas that challenge the establishment. It’s more reasonable to expect that these companies have fallen prey to monopolistic hubris and will soon see massive declines in viewership, collapsing stock prices and the revolt of angry shareholders. In other words, these companies are shooting themselves in the feet. That said, the current social/political/media climate in America today is likely to bring about the rise of a far more insidious and dangerous type of censorship: self-censorship.
