Pelosi's GOP challenger describes being threatened by alleged 'Antifa bully'

ohn Dennis, the chairman of the San Francisco Republican Party challenging House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., for her congressional seat, joined "The Ingraham Angle" Monday to talk about a confrontation with a liberal protester who he alleged was an "Antifa bully."

Dennis said he was working with the San Francisco Police Department and the man has been identified.

"[The police have] been very good about it and we'll just let them do their jobs," Dennis told host Laura Ingraham.

Dennis, who released the video earlier this month, was taking part in a clean-up event in San Francisco where the confrontation took place.

"No, I actually want you dead," the man told Dennis.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why has it become politically acceptable, on the part of the Dementocrats, to threaten physical violence against those who think differently?

One has to wonder who, at the forefront of the Democratic machine has signed off on this threat of violence, which has, on occasion, become violence against conservatives.

I will leave such conjecture to your imagination, but I believe we all know the small group of Dems for whom such behaviour is perfectly acceptible.

US Boy Scouts files for bankruptcy after abuse scandal

The Boy Scouts of America filed for bankruptcy Tuesday in what it said was an effort to safeguard compensation payouts for sexual abuse victims.

The organization has been accused of covering up generations of abuse inflicted on thousands of its young members and failing to do enough to root out pedophiles using the youth movement to prey on minors over its 110-year history.

Bankruptcy proceedings will help the Boy Scouts to “equitably compensate” victims through the establishment of a victims’ compensation trust and allow the organization to continue at a local level, a statement from the group said.

“The BSA cares deeply about all victims of abuse and sincerely apologizes to anyone who was harmed during their time in Scouting,” chief executive Roger Mosby said in the statement.

The organization estimates liabilities of up to $1 billion, according to court filings lodged Tuesday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I think I am about to be a little sick, upon reading this; that people in leadership in the BSA, like their sexually carnivorous, predatory brothers in various areas of the clergy, believe that it is completely normal to misuse the power of their office, and hurt kids, is deviant, immoral, and unacceptable.

NO kid should have to put up with this, period, end of discussion.

And unless the Catholic church addresses this issue head on, just like the Boy Scouts, they are going to wind up bankrupt, and selling cathedrals to pay damages for these horrific actions against kids.

Saudi Arabia dismisses criticism over Khashoggi murder

In an exclusive interview on Conflict Zone, senior Saudi foreign affairs official Adel al-Jubeir says Riyadh is paying 'a great price' over the murder of Jamal Khashoggi but dismisses criticism from human rights groups over its treatment of activists.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

OF course, you cannot criticize Saudi Human rights, because they have none.

Clever, those Saudis!

This is why, as a Christian, I could never visit Riyadh, because in walking off the plane, I would be accused or apostasy, and be subsequently tortured and or killed.

Libyan Rivals Readying for Long Fight - Weapons flood into the country as war looks set to escalate

With more weapons flooding into the country and no real peace talks, the various combatant factions in Libya are all gearing up for a protracted civil war. This is true both of the large groups, like Khalifa Hafter’s Libyan National Army (LNA) and the UN-backed unity government, and smaller tribal groups.

With fighting looking to get worse, not better, the oil ports of Libya are under a state of blockade, with LNA forces and allies controlling the area, and everyone demanding a bigger cut of revenue to let the unity government restore shipments.

UN efforts to keep arms out of the country are failing miserably, and now every group sees new fighting as inevitable and is snatching up as many weapons for themselves as possible before that new round of violence.

American mercenaries working for the Spear Operations Group carried out the mission, in which no one was killed. A 2018 Buzzfeed report detailed how the UAE contracted the Americans in their campaign against "terrorist" targets in Yemen, many of whom were linked to the Islamist Al-Islah political party—a Yemeni affiliate of the Muslim Brotherhood organization that is banned in the UAE.

'It wasn't a mistake': Palestinian boy may lose eye after being shot by Israeli police

An eight-year-old Palestinian boy is likely to lose one of his eyes after being shot by Israeli police with a rubber-coated steel bullet after he stepped out from a restaurant.

According to the boy's family and eyewitnesses, Malek Issa was deliberately shot between the eyes on Saturday after he bought a sandwich in the East Jerusalem village of Issawiya.

Medics said the impact of the shooting was so severe that Issa may have suffered brain damage.

"Malek is awake but his condition is difficult. The shot has caused fractures to the skull and face, and brain haemorrhage," Issa's father, Wael, told Middle East Eye.

Eyewitnesses said there were no violent protests or stones being thrown when Israeli forces started firing.

Wael said Israeli forces had come to the area to detain a man, and when they saw a crowd begin to gather, they started firing at random.

Israeli police, meanwhile, said its officers had employed "riot control measures" during an operation in Issawiya.

Satellite Images Show Heavy Damage From Israeli Attack on Damascus AirportSeveral warehouses destroyed

On February 13, Israel attacked the Damascus Airport with a series of missile strikes. Israeli media were quick to label the attack as targeting “Iranians,” which is what Israel always says it is attacking in nearby nations.

Israel’s reports were non-specific, and Syria’s reports were on some missiles being intercepted. Specific details on the damage are only now starting to emerge with commercial satellite images showing a number of warehouses destroyed.

Israeli media, dutifully, reported those as Iranian warehouses, and further suggested that the airport site must’ve been the headquarters of the Iranian Quds Force, despite no evidence supporting such a claim.

European Union rejects Mark Zuckerberg's offer on regulating online content

The European Union (EU) has rejected Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg's offer on online content regulation, saying the social networking platform must take responsibility for harmful, fake and illegal content.

On Monday, Zuckerberg had proposed reforms regarding the regulation of Facebook's online content with the slogan "charting a way forward: online content regulation".

After meeting the Facebook CEO in Brussels, EU industry commissioner Thierry Breton said the proposed Internet rules are insufficient and it was for Facebook to adapt and adherer to Europe's standards, not the other way round.

Also read: Facebook CEO Zuckerberg meets top EU officials ahead of proposals regulating AI

Breton who is tasked with overseeing the bloc's data strategy, said Facebook "was being slow in coming forward with ideas on how to remove illegal content and warning that the EU was preparing to act."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What concerns me deeply here, is the rush to censor allegedly "illegal content", without first actually defining it; this is a very slippery slope when it comes to outlawing certain language, which may anger us, or make us feel bad relative to what is being said.

But don't most humans have the "horse sense" to differentiate between what is merely offensive, and that which is just plain bad information on line?!?

Apparently, Neither Zuckerberg nor Breton believe that people do; now, I find that very offensive, myself!! :-)

In Munich, Zelensky calls for repair of European security, starting with Ukraine

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky called on world leaders to repair the system of regional security in Europe by ending Russia’s war in the east of Ukraine and returning the Crimean peninsula from Russian occupation at the Munich Security Conference on Feb. 15.

“It’s not entirely correct to say ‘the war in Ukraine.’ This is the war in Europe. And along with the annexation of Crimea, it has lasted as long as World War II. Imagine that,” Zelensky said in a speech at the “Townhall on Ukraine” panel at the conference.

Emphasizing that a new security architecture should be based solely on the norms and principles of international law, Zelensky said that the current international treaties do not protect any nation from the rule of the strongest.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Looks as though Ukrainian President Zelensky, instead of "sipping the Koolaid" on Crimea, has decided "chug it", somewhat akin to what a drunken, pledging University frat member would do, in order to join a powerful fraternity.

Right now, tht "powerful fraternity" consists of the United States of America, which pathologically refuses to recognise that the Crimean people had a right to peaceful self-determination, as stated in the UN Charter of the Rights of Man, to which the United States is, ironically, a signatory.

So President Zelensky, since you seem to be suffering from a profoundly intense case of SMD (Selective Memory Disorder), let me disabuse you of the collective fantasies and utter untruths to which you have been clinging on this issue, and replace those fantasies with facts.

FACT: Washington Was Behind Ukraine Coup: Obama admits that US “Brokered a Deal” in Support of “Regime Change”;
US Sticks to Tried and True Policy of Supporting Coups

What happened was that the duly elected Ukrainian President, Yanukovich, was thrown under the proverbial bus, because he was considered "not pro-Western enough, and way too Russia-Centric" to fit the US's and Europe's "new World Order Profile; so exit Yanukovich, and in an election more crooked than is a dog's hind leg, Poroshenko was "anointed" as Ukraine's next President.

When this happened, the people of Crimea understood that there would be no rule of law in Kiev; so what did they do?!?

President Zelensky, you know this coming bit, but are terrified to actually acknowledge it, as it would compromise your utterly false position, that Russia "annexed" Crimea.

The Crimeans held a full and fair referendum, asking their people if they wanted to remain with Ukraine, post-putsch, or petition Russia to become a part of the Russian Federation.

And the result, President Selensky?!? You know that also.

In the Crimean Status Refgerndum, Crimeans voted overwhelmingly - at a total of nearly 97%, to petition the Russian Federation to become a member.

The Russian Federation responded, by accepting Crimea as a member.

Sir, I would like to strongly caution you, that a foreign policy based on lies and attempted deceit, is like attempting to build a house on sand; the foundation will not stand.

I would therefore politely suggest to your American handlers, that you and the US come up with a Ukrainian position on Crimean's Referendum which reflects the truth, and starts righting US/Russian relations over Crimea, and starts righting Ukrainian/Russian relations over Crimea; it is well past time, sir, that such reconciliation began.

Peace here can only begin... when responsibility for dealing the truth of history is accepted, rather than attempting to embrace a narrative which is horrifically false, and flies in the face of all known facts.

Sir, I sense that you are a very bright man, who truly, sincerely, wants the best for his country; so let's dispense with falsehoods which can only lead to more bitter conflict between Russia and Ukraine, which could result in a protracted, armed confrontation between these two countries.

I do not believe, for one moment, that this is where you want to go with the Crimea issue, even though the US government is most probably applying the maximum amount of pressure it dares, to get you to go along with their narrative on this issue, as another way to say "Gotcha!!" to Russia.

GOP lawmaker slams California pension fund defense of Chinese ties as 'oblivious'

A Republican lawmaker slammed the response of California's state pension fund as "deeply oblivious," two days after he called for the firing of its chief investment officer over accusations that the fund invested in Chinese companies blacklisted by the U.S. government.

"This is a deeply oblivious and ignorant response," Rep. Jim Banks told "Mornings with Maria" Friday. "What we know is that CalPERS, the largest state pension fund in America, invests in almost 300 Chinese companies."

In a Wednesday letter addressed to California Gov. Gavin Newsom, Banks alleged California Public Employees' Retirement System (CalPERS) invested in numerous blacklisted Chinese companies that manufacture military products and urged the state to investigate its CIO, Yu Ben Meng.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The only reasonable answer I can think of, is that when Calpers originally invested in these companies, they were not blacklisted, and were actually making money for the California State Pension fund.

But SOMEONE in their business units, should have had the horse-sense, once these companies were blacklisted, to pull Calpers money out of these deals and invest elsewhere; that this did not happen, appears to be very concerning indeed/\.

MIKE BLOOMBERG: I WILL CHARGE AMERICANS WITH 'DOMESTIC TERRORISM' FOR 'HATE CRIMES' IF ELECTED

SOURCE: CHRIS MENAHAN, INFORMATION LIBERATION
Billionaire presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg said he will charge Americans with "domestic terrorism" for "hate crimes" if elected and bashed "nativists" in America before affirming his commitment to Israel remaining a "Jewish state" in a recent interview with the Jewish Telegraph Agency.

From JTA.org, "Mike Bloomberg: Anti-Semitism is a problem on the right and the left. Here’s how I’d combat it from day one.":

[BLOOMBERG:] Anti-Semitic violence is on the rise. We've seen it in the New York area -- including the recent horrific attacks in Jersey City -- and across the country. As a Jew, as an American and as a human being, I am deeply disturbed every time I hear about these hate crimes.

[...] When the president calls his supporters "real Americans" -- an echo of the language that nativists, anti-Semites and the KKK used for many decades -- he undermines our fundamental national values.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mayor Bloomberg, a word, please.

I am the absolute antithesis of a person who could ever be described as "hateful"; I am a Christian pacifist activist, who absolutely never advocates violence, and is constantly encouraging my government to achieve what it wants geopolitically and economically, through hard won, moral negotiations, rather than through these endless, out-of-control wars.

But sir, should you get nominated and elected, will all logical, calm, reasoned, and documentable concerns Americans may have about Israel's treatment of the Palestinians, and its relationship with its neighbors in the Middle East, then be labeled as "hate speech"?!?

How far are your ready to eviscerate the First Amendment to the Constitution, in order to protect Tel Aviv from logical, reasonable, and potentially well-deserved criticism for some of their policies?!?

Will you become "that President" who conflates any responsible, moral, and logical criticism of Israel with anti-Semitism, and "hate speech"?!?

Because if so, you are already skidding down a very slippery slope, and telegraphing to both this country, and the world, that you will never hold Israel accountable for what it may do to not only throw the entire Middle East into grave geopolitical distress, but also the rest of the world as well, and I must, as someone who cares about all human life on this planet, ask if this will be the best possible US foreign policy under your watch as President?

And sir, forgive me, but the short answer is, "Absolutely not!!"

And sir, when you state that it is a "solemn obligation of the United States to ensure Israel remains a "Jewish State", what happens in a "one state" Israel, in which Palestinians are going to demand the right to vote?!?

And looking at the demographics and birth rates among Palestinians, sir, what happens when the Palestinian demographic takes over that of Jewish Israelis in Israel?!?

What should be the US geopolitical response if, and when, such a phenomenon should happen?!?

US MILITARY PREPPING FOR CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC

SOURCE: MILITARY TIMES

U.S. Northern Command is executing plans to prepare for a potential pandemic of the novel coronavirus, now called COVID19, according to Navy and Marine Corps service-wide messages issued this week.

An executive order issued by the Joint Staff and approved by Defense Secretary Mark Esper this month directed Northern Command and geographic combatant commanders to initiate pandemic plans, which include ordering commanders to prepare for widespread outbreaks and confining service members with a history of travel to China.

The Navy and Marine Corps messages, issued Tuesday and Wednesday, respectively, reference an executive order directing U.S. Northern Command to implement the Department of Defense Global Campaign plan for Pandemic Influenza and Infectious Diseases 3551-13.

The document serves as the Pentagon’s blueprint for planning and preparing for widespread dispersion of influenza and previously unknown diseases.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That bit about "previously unknown diseases", is causing the hair on the back of my neck to start break-dancing, a usually double-plus ungood sign.

I would like to suggest that if you have not been to your health care professional in some, time, now might be a reasonble time to check in, and make sure that your immune system is doing as well as it can.

Please have the horse-sense to be eating intelligently and well, and follow some common-sense rules about supplementation.

But I am having to wonder; is this military preparation a rehearsal for the invocation of martial law in this country, in order to prevent the outbreak of this virus from becoming just as virulent as it has become in China, and just how draconian is civilian and military leadership thinking about getting here?!?

The New Rules of the Game

The quadrennial political game of least worst, or how to scare the public to vote for presidential candidates who serve corporate power, comes this season with a new twist. Donald Trump, if he faces Pete Buttigieg, Joe Biden, Amy Klobuchar or Michael Bloomberg, will continue to be an amalgamation of Adolf Hitler, Al Capone and the Antichrist. But should Bernie Sanders manage to evade the snares, traps and minefields laid for him by the Democratic Party elites, should he miraculously become the party’s nominee, the game of least worst will radically change. All the terrifying demons that inhabit Trump will be instantly exorcised. But unlike in the biblical story of Jesus driving the demons into a herd of swine, they will be driven into the senator from Vermont.

SpaceX MISSED its booster landing after successfully delivering 60 new Starlink satellites into orbit

SpaceX successfully launched its latest cluster of high-speed internet satellites into orbit Monday but was unable to stick the landing.

Its Falcon 9 rocket booster, which is designed to slowly ease itself back to Earth where it can be reused, failed to land safely on an autonomous ship and instead fell into the ocean.

It was not immediately clear why it missed its target. The rocket did not appear in the frame in live footage broadcast from the drone ship, but a plume of smoke or vapor was seen a short distance away.

China’s New Coronavirus: An Examination of the Facts

The Western mass media have discussed the new corona virus that began in the city of Wuhan in Central China but, apart from repetitive small details and the inevitable China-bashing, not much light has been shed on the circumstances. My initial commentary here is composed from a medley of nearly 100 Western news reports, primarily ABC, CBS, CNN, AFP, and from some Chinese media. Officially called the novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV), the contagion is a respiratory illness, a new type of viral pneumonia, in the same family of infections as SARS and MERS.

China's Xi Threatens More Crackdowns As Scientists Say Coronavirus May Have Originated From Wuhan Labs

By Aaron Kesel

China’s President Xi Jinping has called for tightened control over online discussion and increased policing to ensure “positive energy” and social stability according to state media, Bloomberg reported. This is being pushed as Chinese scientists in South Beijing have said the virus’ origin was the long-suspected Wuhan Virology lab or another Wuhan Center for Disease Control lab.

The government must “strengthen the management and control of online media,” and “crack down on those who seize the opportunity to create rumors” on the internet, Xi said...

West Point Prof Pens Blistering Takedown of U.S. Military Academies

What do you call a civilian law professor who, after successfully filing for federal whistleblower status to keep his job teaching at West Point Military Academy, proceeds to write a bombshell book about the systematic corruption, violence, fraud, and anti-intellectualism he says has been rampant at the historic institution for over a hundred years?

Well, if you are part of the military leadership or an alumnus of the storied military academy, you may call him a traitor.

But if you are anyone searching for reasons why the most powerful military in the world has not won a war in 75 years, you might call him a truth-teller. And a pretty brave one at that.

MORE PROOF TRUMP IS THE "CONTROLLED OPPOSITION" AFTER ALL

During the election it was unclear if Donald Trump was a puppet of the elites. He could have simply been a convenient scapegoat. Today, it is obvious that he is indeed controlled opposition.

As I've noted in numerous articles, Trump's associations with the globalists go way back. He was saved from crippling debts in multiple properties in Atlantic City during the 1990s by the Rothschilds. The Rothschild banking agent that handled Trump's bailout was none other than Wilber Ross, the senior managing director of Rothschild New York. Ross is now Trump's Commerce Secretary, which indicates that this relationship continues to this day.

Mary Shelley Kept Her Husband's Heart After His Death And Other Stories You Maybe Don't Know

One of the earliest masters of horror, Mary Shelley wasn't just dabbling in the dark when she wrote one of the most important and influential novels of all time. The mother of science-fiction knew what she was talking about when she laid the groundwork for goths everywhere by creating Frankenstein, or The Modern Prometheus at the age of 18. Her entire life was marred by tragedy, with even her happiest moments shadowed by a gloomy air of sadness. Her favorite place was a cemetery, which makes sense, because she was surrounded by death. She even kept her husband's heart wrapped in a love poem inside her desk. All you baby goths need to get on her level.

Court orders Tesla to stop chopping down trees to build its German Gigafactory in victory for green campaigners

A German court on Sunday ordered Tesla Inc to stop clearing forest land near the capital Berlin to build its first European car and battery factory in a victory for local environmental activists.

The US electric carmaker announced plans last November to build a Gigafactory in Gruenheide in the eastern state of Brandenburg.

The court ruling, by the higher administrative court of the states of Berlin and Brandenburg, comes after the state environmental office gave a green light to clear 92 hectares of forest for the plant.

Planning permission has not yet been granted to build the Gigafactory, however, meaning US entrepreneur Elon Musk's company is preparing the ground at its own risk.
