We Never Could Have Imagined (or Prepped For) What Actually Happened in Venezuela

Can we prepare for everything?

We never could have imagined…or prepped for…what happened in Venezuela.

In this article, I wanted to analyze my preps, and the nature of the apocalypse we have been forced to face. I don’t know about you, but anything that kicks you out of your place, of your warm bed, your pets, kids, wife, and the rest of your family, for me does not have another better word to describe it.

My comfort bubble was destroyed, my work of an entire life was thrown out by the window...

On Sunday, February 25, at their annual convention in San Diego, California, Democrats approved a set of positions on pending legislation that includes opposition to S 720/HR 1697, the Israel Anti-Boycott Act, a federal bill that would impose draconian penalties for boycotts regarding Israel under certain circumstances; and S 170/HR 2856, the Combatting BDS Act, which purports to permit and encourage states to enact similar laws–as many have.

Florida School’s R.O.T.C. Lost 3 Cadets; Suspect Was a Member

The 17 people killed in the shooting rampage included three members of the school’s popular Junior Reserve Officers’ Training Corps: Mr. Wang, Martin Duque and Alaina Petty. Fellow students say the cadets acted valiantly, helping to usher others to safety. All three have been posthumously awarded the Medal of Heroism by the Army.

The accused gunman, Nikolas Cruz, 19, had also been a Junior R.O.T.C. cadet.

The Pentagon’s “Ides of March”: Best Month to Go to War

Is it a coincidence?

In recent history, from the Vietnam war to the present, the month of March has been chosen by Pentagon and NATO military planners as the “best month” to go to war.

With the exception of the War on Afghanistan (October 2001) and the 1990-91 Gulf War, all major US-NATO and allied led military operations over a period of more than half a century –since the invasion of Vietnam by US ground forces on March 8, 1965– have been initiated in the month of March.

The Ides of March (Idus Martiae) is a day in the Roman calendar which broadly corresponds to March 15. The Ides of March is also known as the date on which Julius Caesar was assassinated in 44 BC.

Lest we forget, the month of March (in the Roman Calendar) is dedicated to Mars (Martius), the Roman God of War.

For the Romans, the month of March (Martius) marked “the time to start new military campaigns.”

BEX ALERT - Alex Jones Accused of Sexual Harassment, Bullying at InfoWars

Alex Jones and I have our differences, but I have to say that this doesn't feel real. We know the corporate media/government have declared war on the Independent Media, and Alex Jones is a high profile target. In our moral-less society, it is easy to get people to tell lies to smear a target. All it takes is enough money. Recall that at least one of Trump's accusers turned out to have been paid handsomely! And remember the phone calls into my radio show claiming that Alex Jones said things that turned out to be less then accurate!

Knowing Alex Jones' fanatical support for all things Israel, I especially question the claim of antisemitism.

Alex Jones Accused of Sexual Harassment, Bullying at InfoWars

InfoWars owner Alex Jones allegedly bullied, discriminated, and sexually harassed a number of his employees, according to Equal Employment Opportunity Commission complaints obtained by the Daily Mail. Rob Jacobson, who worked at the conspiracy site for 13 years, alleges that Jones called him "The Jewish Individual" and "The Resident Jew" before he was fired. Ashley Beckford, who is African American, alleges that Jones and others mocked her for her race and denied her promotions. She also claims that Jones “grabbed my butt" after initiating a "side-hug," and was grooming her for "sexual exploitation." Jones denied the claims. “I'm not going to talk about former employees," he said. "I mean nobody accuses me of stuff like that … Wow. That's all I can say. That's total bulls**t.”

Gorilla Statue Removed After Complaints It Was ‘Racially Insensitive’

A statue of a gorilla, and prime attraction for kids at the Community Park playground in Corsicana was removed by the city.

A spokesperson for the city said some community members found the gorilla offensive – racially insensitive — in some form, and requested its removal from the park.

“We can understand this, because we have an obligation to listen to all our citizens, to determine what is offensive and not, especially in public places,” said Corsicana Mayor Don Denbow.

Denbow saw an uptick in complaints about the playground primate during the last few weeks. There were more and more phone calls, and personal discussions, and he, the city manager and a city council member, decided it needed to come down.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Next it will be to exterminate the polar bears, because after all, they are white, and that is racist!!!!!!

Police Stop Woman from Attacking Las Vegas Elementary School with Ax

North Las Vegas police officers arrested a woman who allegedly tried to storm an elementary school with an ax and threatened to “murder everyone.”
Police arrested 33-year-old Kisstal Killough after she climbed onto a chain link fence with a pickax in her hand, KSNV NBC3 reported. School officials noticed the woman on the fence with the ax and called police who responded quickly and took her into custody before she entered the school’s property.

“The woman did not harm anyone or cause any damage to the school, Tom Williams Elementary School Principal Kristie Cole wrote in a letter to parents on Wednesday. Cole said the woman was not associated with the school. Why she attempted the alleged attack has not been released by officials.

Trump Wants Joe Manchin’s Gun Control, Rejects Steve Scalise’s National Reciprocity Push

Support America,The Bill of Rights and The Constitution. I'm done with this fool.

President Donald Trump embraced Sen. Joe Manchin’s (D-WV) gun control bill but rejected Rep. Steve Scalise’s (R-LA) push for national reciprocity during a bipartisan meeting with lawmakers Wednesday afternoon.

Trump spoke of the using the Manchin/Toomey bill “as a base” to which other gun bills can be added, and then continued taking comments from various senators and representatives in attendance.

Trump shut down Scalise’s reciprocity push, suggesting the gun control package being pieced together would never pass if national reciprocity were added to it.

Zimbabwe 2.0: South Africa Votes to Confiscate White Minority's Land Without Compensation

The South African parliament voted on Tuesday to move forward in amending their Constitution to allow for the confiscation of land from their white minority without compensation.

The move has come just twenty-four years after apartheid officially ended. Whites ended the apartheid system only with the explicit constitutional guarantee that their land would never be stolen, but now that they've become a small minority with rapidly dwindling political power that's all gone out the window.

Former Clinton campaign manager John Podesta raised some eyebrows in a Tuesday tweet directed at Presidential son-in-law Jared Kushner, who reportedly just lost his access to top secret information amid accusations that "officials in at least four countries" had discussed ways to manipulate the 37-year-old real estate magnate.

"Jared better start wearing his kevlar on his back," Podesta tweeted after suggesting that Kushner's troubles had just begun - referencing a widely mocked picture taken Iraq of Jared awkwardly wearing a bulletproof vest over a blazer.

"War Is Coming To Southern Lebanon" - Lindsey Graham Warns Israel Is Planning An Invasion

Along the Israeli-Lebanon border, it's about to get 2006 all over again.

At least that's what Senator Lindsey Graham told reporters late Tuesday at a press conference with Democratic Sen. Chris Coons - with whom he sponsored a bipartisan immigration bill that ultimately failed to garner enough support from their fellow lawmakers. The press conference was called to share details about a bipartisan trip last week to the Middle East.

Graham of South Carolina told reporters that Israeli officials made it clear to visiting lawmakers last week that the IDF will need to launch a military action in Southern Lebanon if Hezbollah continues work on a guided-rocket factory being built in the region - a factory that's purportedly being funded by Iran, according to Bloomberg.

"They’ve told us in no uncertain terms that if this threat continues - they keep making rockets that can hit the airport and do a lot of damage to the state of Israel - they are going to have to go in," Graham said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Where is Israel's incontrovertible proof that such a factory is being built by Hezbullah in Lebanon, using Iranian money?!?

That's the cover story of course.

What Israel wants to do, is destroy Hezbullah in Lebanon, because it is affiliated with Iran, and control Lebanon's resources.

It is interesting what Senator Grahamn chose NOT to mention, which is a massive US-Israeli exersise in Israel, slated for early next month, right about at the time Netanyahu will be addressing AIPAC in DC:

IDF/US Troops get Ready to Drill to Simulate a Massive Missile Attack on Israel The drill starts on 4 March, and ends around 15 March.

Were I a betting woman, and because Netanyahu is really starting to sweat bullets due to friends turning state's evidence against him in his corruption scandals, I would not bet against him starting his war against Lebanon any time between the 4th and 15th of March, because he will already have American troops in place to fight Hezbullah alongside the IDF.

Timing... is always key in such drills, and what they could potentially become.

Pennsylvania State Dept. Sued for Hiding Noncitizen Voting Records

The Pennsylvania State Department is facing a lawsuit after officials refused to release records relating to noncitizens on voter rolls in the commonwealth.

An analysis found that there are allegedly more than 100,000 noncitizens that are currently registered to vote, according to a Philadelphia official's testimony before a Pennsylvania government committee last year.

The Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF), an election integrity group, initially threatened the lawsuit against Pennsylvania's State Department in December after officials in the state were unresponsive to PILF's requests to inspect the data relating to noncitizens on the state's rolls.

PILF filed the complaint Monday afternoon in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania seeking injunctive relief to compel Pennsylvania's State Department to allow the group access to the information.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This was not a glitch; this was,most likely, quite deliberate.

Funding Infrastructure: Why China Is Running Circles Around America

“One Belt, One Road,” China’s $1 trillion infrastructure initiative, is a massive undertaking of highways, pipelines, transmission lines, ports, power stations, fiber optics, and railroads connecting China to Central Asia, Europe and Africa. According to Dan Slane, a former advisor in President Trump’s transition team, “It is the largest infrastructure project initiated by one nation in the history of the world and is designed to enable China to become the dominant economic power in the world.” In a January 29th article titled “Trump’s Plan a Recipe for Failure, Former Infrastructure Advisor Says,” he added, “If we don’t get our act together very soon, we should all be brushing up on our Mandarin.”

A Recurring Nightmare: Deployment of U.S. Ground-based Intermediate Range Nuclear Missiles in Europe against Russia

The plan was announced three years ago, during the Obama administration, when Pentagon officials declared: “In front of Russian aggression, the United States is considering the deployment of ground-based missiles in Europe” (the manifesto, 9 June 2015).

Now, with the Trump administration, the plan is officially confirmed. In the 2018 fiscal year the Congress of the United States authorized the financing of “a program of research and development of a ground-based mobile Cruise missile”. It is a nuclear missile with an intermediate range (between 500 and 5500 km), similar to the 112 Cruise nuclear missiles deployed by the US in Comiso in the 1980s.

They were eliminated, along with the Pershing 2 ballistic missiles deployed by the US in Germany and the Soviet SS-20 deployed in the USSR, by the Treaty on Intermediate Nuclear Forces (INF), stipulated in 1987. It prohibits the deployment of ground-based missiles with a range between 500 and 5500 km.

Mueller’s Comic Book Indictment Is a Threat to All of Us. “Controlled Explanations”

The truth of the hoax indictment is available, but it is not reported by the MSM. This website has reported the facts about the indictment as has Moon of Alabama and David Stockman. Even Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein in his press conference announcing Mueller’s indictment of 13 Russians told us part of the truth when he said at the 5 minute, 22 second mark that

“there is no allegation in this indictment that any American was a knowing participant in this illegal activity. There is no allegation in the indictment that the charged conduct altered the outcome of the 2016 election.”

Rosenstein goes on to say that the suspects are innocent until proven guilty in a trial, which, of course, will not take place as the indicted charges are make-believe and the US has no jurisdiction over the indicted Russians.

Is this the way the presstitutes and politicians are reporting it?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Absoflippinglutely unbelievable, but perfectly predictable from the Democratic Party, which, over a year after the election, still cannot possibly believe that it lost the 2016 election with their baggage-ridden candidate, so have to have SOMEONE to blame!

Fort Shafter Faces Major Task in Planning Korea Evacuations

Fort Shafter faces a huge challenge in updating evacuation plans for American civilians in South Korea should war break out on the peninsula, experts say.

Asia expert Ralph Cossa said estimates of the number of Americans in Seoul on any given day run in the 200,000-to-300,000 range, if not more.

Any evacuation would be "extremely daunting, and likely to cause chaos, even if air assets are available, but especially if they are not," said Cossa, president of the Pacific Forum in Honolulu, a subsidiary of the Center for Strategic and International Studies.

Adm. Harry Harris, head of U.S. Pacific Command on Oahu, revealed at a Feb. 14 House Armed Services Committee hearing that Gen. Robert Brown, commander of U.S. Army Pacific at Fort Shafter, and his staff had been tasked with creating an updated "noncombatant evacuation operations" plan, or NEO, for South Korea

LAST WEDNESDAY, the U.S. military did something it had not done before, inviting a sizable delegation of local leaders to a secretive $110 million drone base it’s building in Niger. The Nigerien group was led by the governor of the Agadez region, and the visit was the first for many members of the group, which included religious leaders, civil society members, and a handful of journalists, according to a report by a local radio station, Studio Kalangou.

US Special Envoy on North Korea Retires After Trump Rejects Talks

US special envoy on North Korea Joseph Yun, an advocate of direct diplomacy with the reclusive nation since 2016 has informed the State Department of his intention to retire on Friday.

Though he didn’t offer a specific statement on this sudden decision, it came immediately after President Trump’s most recent comments spurning direct talks with North Korea without massive preconditions.

Though North Korea has expressed willingness to talk, the White House has made clear that they will only talk if they are guaranteed that total nuclear disarmament of North Korea results before the talks themselves begin.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I can certainly understand why Yun did this; he must be catastrophically disappointed in Trump, and in the Trump Administration's hard line on North Korea, which most probably means that Trump is getting ready to greenlight a military action against it.

Remember: demonization of a country, plus placing harsh sanctions against it (as the Trump Administration did last week) is nearly always a prelude to war.

Speaking of which, also at antiwar.com, comes the following article, linked from wapo.com:

Trump’s team is floating an attack on North Korea. Americans would die.

It is foolish, and magical thinking, to believe that such an attack would not escalate, and spiral completely out of control.
