The Foolishness of Regime-Change Fantasies

The United States has tried its hand a lot at regime change. By one count, the US tried to overthrow 72 different governments during the Cold War alone - and that's before the most recent misadventures in Iraq and Libya. It's not exactly a track record of success: the United States failed most of the time to accomplish the fundamental goal of toppling the target. And a quick glance at Iraq is enough to remind you that even when America "succeeds," it often really fails. Despite this track record, the Wall Street Journal opinion pages called for US-led regime change in North Korea and Iran on the same day. That's the same Wall Street Journal that championed the Iraq War over and over again ...

Senior Israeli Rabbi Calls for the Mass Execution of Palestinians

“It must execute them and leave no one alive,” Eliyahu wrote in a Facebook post Tuesday, according to Defend Democracy Press.
Eliyahu, the chief rabbi of the city of Safed, has a record of making racist remarks about Arabs and Muslims. He once said Israel should take “revenge” against Arabs, and that Palestinians, whom he once labeled enemies of Israel, must be “destroyed and crushed in order to end violence.”
Note: Remember Israel has over 200 nuclear war heads!

Chinese Army Mobilizes Military Assets to Tibet Following Live Fire Drills

The Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) mobilized thousands of ground vehicles and other military equipment as the standoff between Chinese and Indian troops near the disputed area of Sikkim continues, according to a report from the PLA Daily.
PLA Daily is widely considered the main outlet the Chinese army uses for external communications, LiveMint notes.

The report did not specify the exact date the military assets were relocated to Tibet but said it occurred at the end of June. The unspecified military "hardware" was transported via rail and conventional roads.

It’s not entirely clear where in Tibet the chess pieces have been placed. The report also failed to indicate whether the military equipment would be used in tandem with a Chinese battalion that recently completed drills in Tibet, China’s second-largest province.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This could get very dicey very quickly.

And the fact that the US and Indian governments enhanced their military ties last year India and U.S. deepen defense ties with landmark agreementcould translate as a possible US military intervention, on the side of India, against China in this skirmish over Sikkim.

INTEL REPORTS REVEAL AT LEAST 40,000 CIVILIANS KILLED IN MOSUL IN JUST 9 MONTHS

According to Hoshyar Zebari, who until recently was a senior minister in Baghdad, many bodies “are still buried under the rubble.”

“Kurdish intelligence believes that over 40,000 civilians have been killed as a result of massive firepower used against them, especially by the federal police, air strikes and Isis itself,” Mr. Zebari added.

The monitoring group Airwars recently estimated that at least 4,000 civilians were still buried under the rubble in Mosul, but we will likely never know the exact number. Up until a month ago, the U.S. only had two personnel investigating casualties in Iraq and Syria full time.

Zebari also emphasized that the “unrelenting artillery bombardment by units of the Iraqi federal police, in practice a heavily armed military unit, had caused immense destruction and loss of life in west Mosul,” according to the Independent.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have a sneaking suspicion that by the time all the deaths are truly tallied in Mosul, this 40,000 figure may well be expanded by double the number reported here.

HUGE! Solar Power Generates 300x More Toxic Waste Than Nuclear (Video)

I’m going to go out on a limb, and suggest that if I was brave enough to tell a room full of rabid liberals and academics several weeks ago that solar power was more dangerous to the environment than coal or nuclear power combined, it would have been a safe bet that I’d have been ridiculed, personally attacked, or perhaps worse by room of said rabid liberals.

I probably would have heard things like, “Duh, everyone knows that “97% of climate scientists agree that climate change cannot be denied,” and everyone also knows solar power is better for the environment than coal, or nuclear energy, etc. Duh! That’s soooo “settled science.”

Trump Ends CIA Program Of Funding Terrorists In Syria; Will Things Actually Change?

By Brandon Turbeville

Setting off a predictable fire in the Western corporate media, there is now weeping and wailing over the new Trump decision to end the policy of the CIA arming terrorists in Syria. Mainstream outlets are now leaping over themselves to demonize Trump, Assad, Putin, and Russia in general. According to some outlets and analysts, Trump has “fallen into a Russian trap” by directing the CIA to stop funding terrorists. If that sounds ridiculous, it’s because it is...

McCain’s Brain Tumor May Explain Bizarre Behavior

Glioblastoma can cause personality changes including aggression, loss of social restraints, confusion, forgetfulness and mood swings.

McCain has acted rather bizarre over the past few months with his unrestrained attacks against President Trump, especially when he claimed America’s standing in the world was “stronger” under Democratic President Obama.

In comparison, other establishment Republicans who hate Trump are careful with what they say publicly.

The Arizona senator also seemed completely confused as he was questioning former FBI Director James Comey at a press conference last month.

NASA uploads hundreds of historic experimental flight videos to YouTube

Fans of experimental aircraft from the 20th century are in for a treat. NASA's Armstrong Flight Research Center has begun uploading its entire historical archive to YouTube, making hundreds of videos highlighting different test flights and strange planes from the past 70 years easily accessible.

The videos date back to 1946 when the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics started flight tests in California's Mojave Desert. One of the earliest videos published so far shows the infamous Bell X-1 undergoing test flights in 1947. That plane was the first aircraft to break the "sound barrier" with the legendary Captain Chuck Yeager at the controls.

Washington D.C. Is Just A Gigantic Money Eating Machine (Video)

In the following video, Right Wing News reviews Michael Snyder’s assessment of just how bad the money situation is right now in Washington DC, using supporting links that include articles that discuss how the largest generation in history is heading into their golden years right now, and many of them need the market to yield 400% returns in some instances just for their pensions to stay solvent.

Then, there’s the 13+ million teenagers across America who have admitted to exchanging sexual acts just to eat during the Obama years. Couple all that with 102 million currently unemployed Americans, and 9,000 of the country’s largest retailers going out of business before year end, and it should be a wakeup call to anyone with a family to begin making preparations for an inevitable collapse.

‘We the People’ Are the Walking Dead of the American Police State (Video)

In the following article, John Whitehead of The Rutherford Institute hypothesizes that the reason Americans like AMC’s “apocalyptic drama “The Walking Dead” so much, is because it lets Americans face the end of the world once a week, only they get to live.” Slowly, Whitehead advises the reader that all is not as it seems in America.

Whitehead explains how anyone who has been paying attention knows that it will not take much for the government—i.e., the military—to lock down the nation in the event of a national disaster, perhaps less.The fact that the government has been relentlessly monitoring our communications, tracking our movements, criminalizing our every action, treating us like suspects, and stripping us of our means of defense, has not been for our protection at all, but rather its been more of an ambush, and it is being carried out in plain sight.

Senate Committee Approves Medical Marijuana for Veterans

The leading lawmaking brass of the United States government is making a push to ensure that doctors employed with the Department of Veterans Affairs can finally write medical marijuana recommendations for those patients living in states with dispensary programs.

Earlier last week, the Senate Appropriations Committee put its seal of approval on an amendment that would—for the first time ever—make medical marijuana access for veterans a part of the Military Construction, Veterans Affairs and Related Agencies Appropriations Bill.

The rider, which was introduced by Senators Steve Daines of Montana and Senator Jeff Merkley of Oregon, would “prohibit the use of funds appropriated or other-wise made available under this Act to interfere with the ability of veterans to participate in medicinal marijuana programs approved by States or deny services to such veterans.”

The Cannabis Industry Apocalypse

Here is the plan.Sessions plans to seize the assets of the big Cannabis companies and use it to bust more people.

Another important clue to their plans comes from a recent DOJ announcement that the DOJ will no longer be donating part of the proceeds that it receives from civil asset forfeitures to a variety of non-profit groups but will instead be keeping all the proceeds for itself to be used for increased staffing and greater enforcement.

In order to address the lack of budget necessary to start large scale enforcement, the Christie Plan lays out the following actions:

Issue Subpoenas to the twenty-nine states that have legalized cannabis, in any form, and demand their entire set of licensing records, for growers, dispensers, doctors, and users.
Use conventional DOJ budgets to hire new DOJ staff to fight the states that refuse to turn over their licensing records. The DOJ will sue each state, in order or revenue, for compliance.

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

Catherine Austin Fitts just published documentation of Department of Defense (DOD) official audit reports from 1998 that acknowledge “losing track” of $6.5 trillion, along with Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) admission of “losing” over $100 billion. This is euphemistically termed “unaccounted,” and literally means that DOD agrees they received these funds, agrees the funds are gone, and then claims to not have records of where the money went.

CHILDREN AMONG CIVILIAN DEAD IN LATEST US-BACKED SAUDI COALITION AIRSTRIKE IN YEMEN

The United Nations Refugee Agency (UNHCR) on Wednesday reported that an airstrike carried out by the U.S.-backed Saudi-led coalition in Yemen killed 20 civilians—including women and children—who were fleeing violence in their home province.

"The people of Yemen are being subjected to deprivation, disease, and death as the world watches."
—Stephen O'Brien, United Nations

"The incident was reported on Tuesday afternoon and the number of civilian casualties are still being verified with initial reports pointing to at least 20 deaths," the agency said in statement. "Most of those killed are believed to be from the same family. Injuries have also been reported with a number also taken to nearby hospitals for treatment."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These are all war crimes, which which, apparently, the US and Saudi civilian and military leadership are quite morally comfortable.

I am profoundly alarmed to be a citizen of a country colluding in Saudi Arabia's horrific war crimes in Yemen; if Mike and I had the opportunity to become citizens of a civilised country which just doesn't do this, I would be delighted.

We are, unfortunately, both too old and too broke to make it happen.

Gang Members Implicate U.S. Gov’t In Dumping Crates Of Guns In Chicago

In a publicly available video testimony an ex-Chicago gang member describes how crates of fully automatic firearms would regularly be found in alleyways and backstreets of urban Chicago at the early hours of the morning, giving free, illegal weapons to the gangs of Chi-Town, which is now often referred to as Chiraq because it is a war zone.

He refers to it as a diabolical plot, a plan, affecting only low-income areas, pointing out that many of the firearms being found were class-3 automatic firearms, which can only be purchased at certain retailers under intense federal scrutiny. He notes that criminals aren’t allowed to buy firearms in the first place, yet the guns are everywhere, so where are they coming from?
