Donald Trump Considering Joe Lieberman To Lead FBI

I hope this is fake news. The other people aren't too hot either. If it is true Donald Trump is a lost cause and so is this country!

President Donald Trump is interviewing FBI director candidates this afternoon, which include former Connecticut Democrat Senator Joe Lieberman.

The news was revealed by White House press secretary Sean Spicer to reporters aboard Air Force One, traveling back to the White House after the president’s commencement speech to the Coast Guard Academy.

The list also includes FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, former Governor of Oklahoma Frank Keating and the FBI’s Executive Assistant Director Richard McFeely.

Tom Woods Explains Why "Your Facebook Friends Are Wrong About Health Care."

In a new free E-book, best-selling libertarian author Tom Woods explains, "I have no doubt that your Facebook friends are lovely people, but you know and I know they're clueless on health care. Chapter 1 takes you through the story of government involvement in health care and how it's this that your friends -- without realizing it -- are really complaining about. Then I start interviewing real-life physicians -- including one whose cash-only practice cuts costs to consumers by 80 to 90 percent. His strategy? Secede from the government/insurance complex. The book is filled with the kind of history and analysis that -- to say the least -- you won't find in many Facebook threads. Plus: how to cut those health care bills even in the Age of Obamacare..."

Liberal Elite Shun Bernie Movement During ‘Grassroots’ Conference at FOUR SEASONS…

Meanwhile, being shunned by party bosses is rocket fuel for the Sanders movement. “If you want to understand why establishment Democrats lose, look at CAP. They hold their…grassroots conference at the Four Seasons and don’t invite grassroots progressives,” one progressive strategist affiliated with Sanders but not authorized to speak for him told The Nation. “They charge $1,000 per ticket to attend their ‘Progressive Party’…and eat canapes while wondering why they are out of touch with the rest of the country.”

Trump’s Plan Finally Becomes Clear. “War is Good for Business”

The first stage of U.S. President Donald Trump’s plan to restore America’s former dominance as a “manufacturing country” will be announced this coming weekend in Riyadh Saudi Arabia and Washington DC, but its outlines are now already more than clear.

The biggest-ever foreign sale of U.S.-made weaponry will be announced at that time, and, according to a little-noticed report by Reuters on May 12th, an unidentified U.S. government official informed Reuters that “We are in the final stages of a series of deals,” whose size will be of truly extraordinary historic proportions.

Trump will announce during this, his first trip abroad as the U.S. President, starting on Friday May 19th, deals for the fundamentalist-Sunni government of Saudi Arabia to purchase more than $100 billion, and perhaps more even than $300 billion, in U.S.-made weaponry.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF, in fact, this analysis is true (and I tend to agree with this author), we are looking at generations of endless war and destruction,so long as nuclear annihilation is not triggered.

But when the American military understands that they do not have the weaponry, the troop strength, the money, or the manufacturing to assure a conventional victory against whoever is the "victim du jour" of those in the bowels of power in the Unhinged Surveilled States of America, that is when those little brass keys will be turned to unleash this country's nuclear arsenal.

Does anyone remember the Sherlock Holmes film " Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows", in which the evil Professor Moriarty was eager to see a war, any war, start in Europe, because he had a lock on both the bullets and the bandages, and would profit handsomely from the outcome of such a war?!?

The cold, hard reality here is that it won't be Donald Trump who will profit directly from these deals with Saudi Arabia; but his big-time military/industrial complex friends will , and that means big time donations to his re-election campaign, assuming he stays in office.

Ladies and gentlemen, I give you....President Donald "Moriarty" Trump.

Israeli whistleblower sent to prison after exposing official corruption

A former manager at the Israeli tax authority has been thrown into jail after he had exposed official corruption on a massive scale.

Shuki Mishol had spent more than a decade uncovering corruption of mafia proportions, involving the theft of approximately $14 billion (50 billion shekels) annually from ordinary citizens.

However, the system finally found something with which to prosecute him – an overdue payment of $100 on car insurance – and on 16 May he was sent to prison for two months.>>

NY organ trafficker admits buying kidneys in Israel for $10,000… and selling them in U.S. for $120,000

The lawyers claimed that the donors he arranged to give up kidneys were fully aware of what they were doing.

But anthropologist and organ trade expert Nancy Scheper-Hughes, who described Israel as a ‘pariah’ in the organ transplant world, has said in the past that many of the donors were desperately poor immigrants from eastern European countries such as Moldova, Romania and Russia.

They say the recipients are leading healthy lives thanks to Rosenbaum.

The 60-year-old was arrested two years ago following a huge investigation into corruption in New Jersey.

The probe led to 46 arrests, including several rabbis, the New York Daily News reports.

Cannabis & Traumatic Brain Injury

A Promising Approach

A new and promising therapeutic approach points to the positive effects of phytocannabinoids and cannabimimetic drugs, isolated from the Cannabis sativa plant. [5] Research shows that, “Cannabinoids of all classes have the ability to protect neurons from a variety of insults that are believed to underlie delayed neuronal death after traumatic brain injury (TBI), including excitotoxicity, calcium influx, free radical formation, and neuroinflammation.”[6]

The States Resist the Feds (And their evil war on drugs)

It would seem that the state legislature in Vermont has voted to eliminate the war on marijuana in the state for recreational use. This is important, critically so, because all of the efforts to legalize recreational marijuana so far have been done by the processes of voter-sponsored ballot initiatives and referendums. In other words, marijuana legalization is now taking place in at least one state legislature, not just the ballot box.

Maxine Waters doubles down on stupid while Democrats dream of a progressive president

I have never been enthusiastic about Donald Trump. He is neither conservative nor libertarian. What I do like about him is that he not politically correct, he is not a Green and he is not Clinton. I hope he will be successful because if he fails America may elect someone like Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren. -- The Hill reported last week that Warren is, “in the hearts and minds of liberal activists, a leader of the party, that her voice carries some weight.” -- Warren is a dangerous ultra-liberal Democrat who cannot be written off the way Maxine Waters and her ilk are.

Sheer Lunacy on Campus

Americans who see themselves as either liberal or conservative should rise up against this totalitarian trend on America’s college campuses. I believe the most effective way to do so is to hit these campus tyrants where it hurts the most — in the pocketbook. Lawmakers should slash budgets, and donors should keep their money in their pockets.

Poetic: “Impeach Maxine Waters” Protest Outside Her Home! (Video)

Truth and hysteria rarely go hand in hand, as the shrill and unstable Maxine Waters recently discovered. After months of crying the tired old spiel of impeaching Trump because of the Russians, when asked point blank by a reporter whether there’s “anything to back any of the accusations that you’ve made,” her answer was of course, no.

In the following video, Right Wing News looks at the hysterical state of the hypocritical left, who in absence of real facts and data, attempt to whip up a public frenzy of moral outrage instead. Of course, Waters herself lives in a $3 million dollar house in a predominantly white neighborhood; despite the majority of her constituents being Black and Latino. But, is this really anything new from the left?

USS Carl Vinson to Remain Near Shores of Korean Peninsula in Open-Ended Mission

The US aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson strike group, which has been stationed near the Korean peninsula since April, will remain deployed in the region for an indefinite period in the light of Pyongyang’s recent nuclear missile test, local media reported Tuesday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Call me silly, but "indefinite deployment" of the USS Carl Vinson strike group does not auger well for peace, particularly in light of the following disturbing development:

Seoul May Launch Preemptive Strike in Case of ‘Imminent’ Pyongyang Attack

The article goes on to state: "South Korea may carry out a preemptive strike if it becomes evident that North Korea will launch a massive missile attack against the country, South Korean Defense Minister Han Min-koo said Tuesday".

This statement appears to be completely at odds with South Korean President-elect Moon's "Sunshine Policy", which favors engagement with North Korea, almost as though Defense Minister Han "didn't get the memo".

So I have to wonder: Is Defense Minister Han DC's "Man" in South Korea?!? What could possibly be the agenda of making a threat like this, other than to provoke Kim Jun-un to do something completely, and irrevocably stupid?

The short answer is, there is no other reason; and that is cause for concern.

Are They Really Out to Get Trump?

The rationale Trump haters have fabricated is simple: the president and his team colluded with the Russians to rig the 2016 election in his favor, which, if true, would provide grounds for impeachment. The driving force, in terms of the argument being made, is that removing Trump must be done “for the good of the country” and to “correct a mistake made by the American voters.” The mainstream media is completely on board of the process, including the outlets that flatter themselves by describing their national stature, most notably the New York Times and Washington Post.

So what is to be done? For starters, until Donald Trump has unambiguously broken a law the critics should take a Valium and relax.

Spread of combat, cholera wreaks misery, collapse in Yemen

Spilling into the hallways of crowded Yemeni hospitals, children writhe in pain from cholera. Displaced villagers roam baking hot plains and barren mountains to evade warring militias.

The escalating outbreak of disease and displacement of tens of thousands by recent fighting has inflamed one of the world's worst humanitarian crises, pushing Yemen's war-pummeled society ever nearer to collapse.

Cholera - a diarrheal disease spread by food or water tainted with human faeces - has killed 180 people in less than three weeks, according to the Geneva-based International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC).

Samira Ali, a worried mother, expressed shock at the scene at Sabaeen Hospital in Sanaa, the ancient capital in the north held by the armed Houthi movement since late 2015.

"My young son suddenly started suffering from severe diarrhea. We went to the hospital and found it full, we couldn't find a place," said Ali, a teacher.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder if this pandemic was deliberately started by the Saudi coalition, through fouling Yemen's water sources; it has been certainly been done before:

During the closing stages of the Rhodesian Bush War, the Rhodesian government resorted to use chemical and biological warfare agents. Watercourses at several sites inside the Mozambique border were deliberately contaminated with cholera.

As death from malnutrition stalks the country, because the US-enabled Saudi military have blocked Yemeni ports, meaning food cannot get in, starving children are most likely to get sick and die more quickly.

Images: Yemeni children starving to death from malnutrition

And yet, the House of Saud; the Saudi Government; the Saudi Military; the US government and US military are completely morally comfortable with these horrific deaths by malnutrition, now coupled with this cholera pandemic.

So I have to ask myself: what kind of monsters are these people for whom the indirect slaughter and genocide of innocent kids, from malnutrition and cholera, is perfectly fine?!?

Sheldon Adelson 'Furious' at Tillerson Over Delay in U.S. Embassy Move

Sheldon Adelson, the Republican mega-donor who gave tens of millions of dollars to President Donald Trump's election campaign and then added another five million to Trump's inauguration committee, is once again angry at the president he helped elect - according to a report published on Sunday in the newsletter Axios.

Adelson, according to the report, told people close to him that he was "furious" at the comments made by Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on NBC's "Meet the Press." Tillerson said in an interview that President Trump was deliberating whether fulfilling his election promise to move the U.S. embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem would help the prospect of reaching an Israeli-Palestinian peace agreement, or hurt it.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Poor little Sheldon, not getting what he thought he paid for?!?

Mr. Adelson, a word, please: such a move would destroy any possibility of an Israel/Palestinian peace agreement.

But you already knew that, which is why you want such a move to go forward.

This would signal the complete American government's betrayal of the Palestinians, whose possibility of existing as a nation-state has already been preempted by the way in which Jewish-only settlements have been created, so that no contiguous state of Palestine can exist.

South Korea Wants to Reopen Communications With North

Since his election last week, South Korean President Moon Jae-in has repeatedly made clear he wants to improve relations with North Korea. To that end, South Korean officials say their immediate priority is to reopen the lines of communication with them at all.

The biggest obstacle to doing that is the United States, and President Moon is dispatching a new Ambassador to DC. President Trump has made clear that he believes diplomacy has “failed,” and that he would only accept any discussions with North Korea under very limited circumstances, which other officials suggested meant they had to stop materially everything the US finds objectionable.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Deep State in the Unhinged Surveilled States of America will do everything in its power to prevent this from happening.

So President Moon, a word please; kindly double, or treble, the personal protection detail you have around you.

The US government, and its agents, are not above assassinating heads of state they believe are not "in tune" with their agenda.

Just look at what happened to Libya's Qaddafi.

Please be communicating, diplomatically, with your Chinese counterparts, to see how they can help open the door for this dialogue to being with North Korea.

Because at the end of the day, it is only dialogue, and not war, which can achieve positive changes here.

Tech giants Google, Uber battling in court over autonomous truck secrets

Google also alleges executives from Uber, who acquired Otto last year, had been in touch with Levandowski regarding the files prior to his departure from Waymo.

GAO: Thousands discharged for military misconduct had mental health diagnosis

The top government watchdog said Tuesday that nearly a quarter of U.S. troops discharged for misconduct were given other-than-honorable discharges despite previously being diagnosed with a mental health condition.

The Government Accountability Office (GAO) in its report faulted branches of the Department of Defense (DOD) for having policies inconsistent with — or poor enforcement of — official Pentagon rules for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), traumatic brain injury (TBI) or sexual trauma.

“As a result of policy inconsistencies and limited monitoring, DOD has little assurance that certain service members diagnosed with PTSD or TBI receive the required screening and counseling prior to being separated for misconduct and that all service members, including officers, have been trained on how to identify symptoms of mild TBI in the deployed setting,” the GAO wrote.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This absolutely stinks, and our military absolutely deserve far better than this. I would like to hope that President Trump will address this, and get this issue resolved.

Chaffetz Demands FBI Hand Over All Comey's Notes, Memos, & Recordings Related To Trump

Update: Jason Chaffetz office just released the letter sent to the FBI's Andrew McCabe demanding all Comey-Trump related memos...

Today, the New York Times reported former Federal Bureau of Investigation Director James Comey memorialized the content of phone calls and meetings with the President in a series of internal memoranda. At least one such memorandum reportedly describes a conversation in which the President referenced the FBI investigation of former National Security Advisor Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn and said to Comey, "I hope you can let this go."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

OK, it's official; the Deep State of the Unhinged, Surveilled States of America, has decided to take Trump down, and by any means necessary.

IF, in fact it happened, and I am not passing judgement at this point, this is an attempt at obstruction of justice, which is an impeachable offence.

IF it did not happen, and Trump has ways and means of proving it did not, it is Comey's "revenge porn" of the most sickening nature possible, courtesy of American partisan politics.

Cost of congestion for trucking in 2015: 1 billion hours, $63 billion

Traffic congestion on U.S. highways cost the trucking industry $63.4 billion in 2015 due to lost productivity, according to new research by the American Transportation Research Institute released Tuesday. The congestion costs for 2015 grew $13.9 billion from the congestion costs of 2014. ATRI used truck GPS data, along with data from the Federal Highway Administration, to determine that the trucking industry experienced more than 996 million hours of delays in 2015, which is equivalent to 362,243 truck drivers sitting idle for an entire working year. The average cost of congestion for the year was more than $22,000 for a truck that drove 100,000 miles or more.

OREGON OFFICIALS THREATEN TO SEIZE 2,000 ACRE ORGANIC FARM, SPRAY IT WITH ROUNDUP

Sherman County Oregon believes the 2,000 acre Azure Farms is not doing enough to control Canada Thistle, a noxious weed. In this case, not doing enough means not spraying weeds with herbicides.

To remedy the alleged problem, the county proposes seizing the farm and spraying everything with Roundup and other herbicides. Azure Farms is certified organic. Of course, organic farms cannot by definition use herbicides, so the farm would be forced out of business by the county government.

Adding insult to injury, the county would place a lien on the property forcing it to pay for the herbicides.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Sherman county officials have most likely been purchased by Monsanto, and/or other manufacturers of aligned poisons; it was, most probably, an easy "investment" to the benefit of these chemical companies.

RETIRED GREEN BERET WARNS A SUCCESSFUL DERAILMENT OF TRUMP'S EFFORTS IS WELL UNDER WAY; WAR IS INEVITABLE

With the Republicans in control of both the Senate and the House of Representatives, at this point, the bill to repeal Obamacare should have already passed both houses of Congress and been on the President’s desk to sign: this was not done, and the Republican Party is to blame.

If the President is unable to make a change while he has both houses of Congress under Republican control, what will happen after the Midterm election changes the complexion of Congress and makes it Democrat? How will he be reelected, and if so, to what end? He waited too long to fire Comey…a name that will torment us in the news even more than that of Natalie Holloway…and now it is turning around to bite him. What is the solution?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There are a number of possible theatres where such a war could start.

But I would like to suggest to President Trump that after 16 consecutive years of war, the American public is both war-weary, and war-skeptical.

I have mentioned many times at this blog, that under President Trump, we will probably see the reinstitution of the draft in this country, for both our young men, and our young women.

But there are some difficult challenges here, and these are, that at this time in its history, the US military doesn't have the weaponry; the money; the manufacturing; or the troop strength to prevail successfully in a conventional war against the most likely opponents, Russia and/or China.

If President Trump does not move to resolve these problems, and quickly, the US military will most likely, lose the next major military conflict because of the issues I have just mentioned.

STEVE MNUCHIN’S OLD COMPANY JUST SETTLED FOR $89 MILLION FOR RIPPING OFF THE GOVERNMENT ON DODGY LOANS

For four years during Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin’s tenure as Chairman of OneWest Bank, its reverse mortgage subsidiary Financial Freedom ripped off the government by receiving unlawful federal insurance payments on reverse mortgages, according to an $89 million Justice Department settlement made public today.

Financial Freedom serviced thousands of government-insured reverse mortgages from 2011 to 2016. According to the settlement, the company repeatedly filed insurance claims with the Federal Housing Administration (FHA), and received interest payments, without following program guidelines. This gave Financial Freedom a critical backstop for reverse mortgages that often harmed borrowers.

“This lender failed to comply with FHA servicing requirements and sought to receive financial gains that it was not legally entitled to,” said Inspector General for the Department of Housing and Urban Development, David Montoya, in a statement accompanying the settlement.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

How completely comforting it is to begin to comprehend how personally ethically challenged our Secretary of the Treasury is!!

VIDEO: CNN HOST SCREAMS AT NAVY SEAL WHO DARES TO QUESTION CREDIBILITY OF “ANONYMOUS” SOURCES

CNN Anchor Kate Bolduan lost her mind in typical liberal left outrage screaming at US Navy Seal, Carl Higbie, to “be quiet” while clapping her hands in anger over his skepticism of anonymous sources.

Fake news CNN is upset that someone dare question the integrity of journalism in the United States and the plethora of “anonymous” sources that are often used to provide reliable information Trump, Russia, and election hacking and even the inner working of Putin’s brain.

Why would this Navy Seal raise questions regarding a “memo” from the very trustworthy former FBI Director James Comey…all of which is revolving around the fact that President Trump mention to Russia’s Lavrov that ISIS is looking to bring down passenger airlines.

Is CNN upset that Trump is sharing information to thwart ISIS attacks on civilian airlines.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I don't know if these exist anymore, but when I was a kid in high school, there were such things in school as "civics classes", where we learned about the 5 bedrocks of true journalism.

These were: who, what, when, where, and how.

IF alleged "reporting is missing any of those elements, it is not true reporting, period, end of discussion.

It is simply codswallop, crafted to fit the agenda of those in the bowels of power in the Unhinged,Surveilled States of America.

Jewish life in Iran was 'always better than in Europe'

In Iran it is prohibited by law to have any contact to Israel. Is that difficult for you as Jew?

According to our religious teachings, we must obey the laws of the country we live in. And being a Jew is very different from being a Zionist. There are - and have always been - Jews all around the world who are very critical of the behavior of Israel's government and army. Being a Jew means we must obey Torah and Talmud. Invading other countries and killing innocent people are not Moses' teachings. We cannot accept Israel's behavior as Jewish; it is a political and not a religious movement. I personally think that, as the victims of the greatest genocide in the world, Jews should have more empathy with the Palestinian people.
