Police: TSA Worker Caught Stealing Cash at Florida Airport

A Transportation Security Administration employee at a Florida airport has been fired after police said surveillance video showed him stealing cash.

The Orlando Sentinel reports 22-year-old Alexander Shae Johnson was arrested Thursday. Court records show he faces a third-degree felony grand theft charge.

An Orlando police report says a passenger selected for a pat-down search while going through security at Orlando International Airport saw Johnson standing near her bag. The report says she went through her bag afterward and realized cash was missing before noticing a bulge in Johnson's shirt pocket that turned out to be money.

Johnson said the cash was his but the video showed otherwise. In a statement, TSA said it has "zero tolerance" for misconduct.

The Winning on Immigration Continues

The winning is too much! We are taking our country back. And we have the right guy in charge to do so.

And there’s more good news to come.

Jews are Freaking Out About What Happened at a Chicago Gay Parade

Chicago’s Dyke March is already an example of the self-destruct mechanism in progress, even before you get to what happened this weekend. This parade is meant for gay people who feel that the typical Pride marches are too mainstream and corporate. Too much about white people. Too much about celebrating and not enough about seething angrily at THE MAN. So they had to go and organize this other parade, where gays who were never really comfortable with the idea of being “accepted” can go and pretend they’re still fighting for a cause.

And once you crowd people like that together in one place, controversy is sure to follow.

And so it did. A marcher named Laurel Grauer told the Windy City Times that she was asked to leave the parade when she showed up with a rainbow flag displaying the Jewish Star of David.

Japan broadcasts TV warning urging citizens to lie on the ground or seek shelter if North Korea launches a NUKE at them

Japan has broadcast a television warning urging citizens to lie on the ground or seek shelter in the event of North Korea launching a nuclear attack.
The government advice also tells people to stay away from windows, protect their heads if they are indoors and to hide behind solid objects if an attack is imminent.

Instructions triggered by Japan's satellite-based J-Alert public warning system will be sent out through speakers installed across the country, the 30-second clip confirms.

The broadcast comes amid heightened tensions between the West and North Korea under dictator Kim Jong-un.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Forgive me, but this very much sounds like the Japanese equivalent of the US-Government's (thoroughly useless) "Duck and Cover" campaign during the 50s.

Shock Footage: Protester Shot Dead On Live TV During Venezuelan Riots: Mac Slavo

We’ve repeatedly warned our readers that a collapse of life as we know it in America would quickly devolve into violence, looting and outright anarchy. As the economic landscape in America deteriorates it is likely only a matter of time before millions of starving Americans make their way to the streets in protest. When that happens they’ll be met with a heavily armed response. It’ll start with tear gas and rubber bullets, but that won’t be enough to stave off the starving and hopeless masses, so we can fully expect real bullets to start flying in short order.

To see a real-world example of this one need only turn their attention to Venezuela, where the collapse of their currency has led to hyperinflation to the point that supplies of bare essentials like flour, meat, medicine and toilet paper are unavailable to the general population. The situation has been playing out for several years and it appears to be coming to a head.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Warning: very graphic video, and not for the faint of heart.

That being said, as we have cautioned our readers many, many times: please don't panic: plan. And if you haven't started to prep by now, now is the time to start!!

This needs to translate into: extra storable food; potable water; and extra medications for yourselves and your pets.

You need to find a way to defend your cache with which you are emotionally comfortable.

Figure out what goods and services you can barter.

Create community with those around you who you trust.

Make sure you have a bug out plan, if the excrement hits the ventilator, and find out what your child's school's policy is on releasing your child early from school, and have a plan to reunite with family and friends, should you get separated, should something big hit. Plan your work on this, then work your plan.

Loretta Lynch faces possible felony if alleged DNC emails exist: Judge Napolitano

Judge Andrew Napolitano says former Attorney General Loretta Lynch could be facing jail time for obstruction of justice if emails to former DNC chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Shultz reportedly about furthering DNC interests surface.

“It is alleged, this document has not seen the light of day yet, if it exists that there is one or several emails between Debbie Wasserman Shultz and Loretta Lynch concerning the behavior that Loretta Lynch will take to further the DNC interests while Mrs. Lynch was the Attorney General, that if it happened, would be misconduct in office,” he said.

“Regime Change” in the Philippines? The CIA’s Cloddish ISIS Attack on Duterte

The only word I find for it is cloddish. I refer to the latest CIA-instigated attempt to initiate regime change against outspoken Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte. The so-called ISIS terror attack in the minerals-rich southern Philippines island of Mindanao, a predominately Muslim part of the mostly Christian nation of 100 million people, took place literally in the midst of President Duterte’s talks in Moscow with Russian President Vladimir Putin. The Duterte Putin talks in turn followed Duterte’s attendance in Beijing on May 15 for the first New Silk Road or Belt Road Forum. America’s colonial asset since 1898 was clearly walking away from the Washington “reservation.”

Saudi Arabia Conducts Over 50 Air Raids on Yemen in Just 24 Hours

Saudi Arabia decided to honor the final day of Ramadan in typical Saudi fashion by conducting over 50 airstrikes on various Yemeni provinces in just 24 hours.
35 airstrikes were carried out in the province of Marib, slightly east of Sana’a. 14 airstrikes hit various districts of Hajjah province including Midi and Herad. They also carried out three raids in both Taiz and Sa’ada provinces.
Saudi warplanes dropping bombs over various areas of Yemen is certainly nothing new. In fact Yemenis have been living under airstrikes for over 800 days now. But for the past month, Saudi Arabia has drastically increased airstrikes in both numbers and locations.
Yemeni resistance forces have steadily fought back on the ground. Troops in Taiz have been fending off Saudi-backed mercenaries in various parts of Taiz. In northern provinces of Jizan, Najran, and Asir, Yemeni forces have managed to take-out many Saudi-backed troops, weapons facilities, and vehicles.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These US-militarily-enabled bombings, against innocent civilians, are war crimes, pure and simple.

Images: Yemeni children dead and maimed for life, courtesy of Saudi bombings

The US collusion with Saudi Arabia in the commission of these war crimes is morally abhorrent, and reeks of failed US foreign policy, when most respected experts, writing on the issues of Yemen, insist that the only possible solution here is political, rather than military.

Does US have right to data on overseas servers? We’re about to find out

The Justice Department on Friday petitioned the US Supreme Court to step into an international legal thicket, one that asks whether US search warrants extend to data stored on foreign servers. The US government says it has the legal right, with a valid court warrant, to reach into the world's servers with the assistance of the tech sector, no matter where the data is stored.

FURTHER READING
Court ruling stands: US has no right to seize data from world’s servers
The request for Supreme Court intervention concerns a 4-year-old legal battle between Microsoft and the US government over data stored on Dublin, Ireland servers. The US government has a valid warrant for the e-mail as part of a drug investigation. Microsoft balked at the warrant, and convinced a federal appeals court that US law does not apply to foreign data.

The government on Friday told the justices that US law allows it to get overseas data, and national security was at risk.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Just figure, every time you email, or post to a blog, no matter how innocuous, that the data will be scanned and saved by both this government, and the governments which enter into this reciprocity agreement; the right to privacy no longer exists in the Unhinged, Surveilled States of America.

TSA considers forcing airline passengers to remove books from carry-ons

The Transportation Safety Administration (TSA) is reportedly testing new safety procedures that could require airline passengers to remove books from their carry-on bags when going through security lines, raising privacy concerns.

The Week reported that the TSA began testing the new security requirement for books and other paper products at airports in Missouri and California earlier this month. The new screening process could require passengers to remove all reading material and food from their carry-ons and place them in bins for screening, though the Wall Street Journal note changes have not been finalized.

Travelers already have to remove laptops from carry-on bags and place them in a separate bin. An early May test in Kansas City, Mo., had travelers remove all paper from their carry on bags, but it didn’t go well and was halted after a few days, the TSA told the Wall Street Journal.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is not about safety; it is about the Thought Police, Gestapo-like, mentally ungifted thugs from TSA making an instant evaluation of your mental capabilities and geopolitical leanings, to determine if you should be a "person of interest" for the many "alphabet soup" agencies out there.

Looks like the 4th Amendment to the Constitution, protecting US citizens from unreasonable search and seizure of their property, has been bounced out on its ear by this government.

Syria warns Israel of 'dangerous repercussions for aggressive action'

Syrian army issues statement following IDF response to Syrian missile spillover, calling Israeli actions motivated 'a desperate attempt to boost morale' and warning 'Israeli enemy' of consequences.

The Syrian army warned Israel on Sunday of the "dangerous repercussions" of its "aggressive activities" after the IDF retaliated against spillover fire in the Golan Heights for the second day in a row.

After the Syrian army forces managed to thwart the wide-scale attack of terrorist al-Nusra … the Israeli enemy continued today to attack one of our military stations, in a desperate attempt to support terrorist organizations and boost their low morale," read a statement from the army of Syrian President Bashar Assad.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Let's look at a map of the Israeli/Syrian border:

Map: Israeli/Syrian Border

Now, let's take a look at the Map of Eretz Israel, or "Greater Israel", which many Zionists in the Israeli government want to bring to fruition:

Image: Eretz Israel, or greater Israel, stretching from the Tigris to the Euphrates Rivers

Notice that hunks of Syria; Lebanon; Egypt; Iraq, and Saudi Arabia, get gobbled up in this redrawing of borders in the Middle East?!?

In the military hot mess which characterises the wars in Syria, it is not impossible that Israel's civilian and military infrastructure saw their bombings in Syria as a calculated risk, to see how much of the country it could potentially "chew off", and declare its own, beyond the Golan Heights, before the dust settles.

And we see some confirmation of that possibility in the following article, posted on last Saturday, from the timesofisrael.com:

Liberman: The Assad Regime will Continue to Suffer the Consequences of their Attacks

I would like to hope that Russia's Putin and Lavrov are telling their Israeli counterparts, in no uncertain terms, that these bombings must stop, or else there will be consequences, courtesy of the Russian military.

I don't know how long Putin will put up with this kind of military nonsense from the IDF in Syria, but my hunch would be, not very long at all.

Are We in a Syrian Missile Crisis?

On Sunday, a U.S. F/A-18E "Super Hornet" fighter aircraft shot down a Syrian SU-22, a Russian-made fighter-bomber. On Monday, Russia issued an unprecedented warning to the United States: "Any aircraft, including planes and drones belonging to the international coalition, operating west of the River Euphrates, will be tracked by Russian anti-aircraft forces in the sky and on the ground and treated as targets."

NSA USES TRICK TO SPY ON AMERICANS

The government is spying on most Americans through our computers, phones, cars, buses, streetlights, at airports and on the street, via mobile scanners and drones, through our credit cards and smart meters, televisions, dolls, and in many other ways.

This week, ZDNet reported that the NSA uses a trick to get around the few flimsy American laws on spying … they shuttle internet traffic overseas so they can pretend they’re monitoring foreign communications:

A new analysis of documents leaked by whistleblower Edward Snowden details a highly classified technique that allows the National Security Agency to “deliberately divert” US internet traffic, normally safeguarded by constitutional protections, overseas in order to conduct unrestrained data collection on Americans.

CENTRAL BANKS BUYING STOCKS HAVE RIGGED US STOCK MARKET BEYOND RECOVERY

Central banks buying stocks are effectively nationalizing US corporations just to maintain the illusion that their “recovery” plan is working because they have become the banks that are too big to fail. At first, their novel entry into the stock market was only intended to rescue imperiled corporations, such as General Motors during the first plunge into the Great Recession, but recently their efforts have shifted to propping up the entire stock market via major purchases of the most healthy companies on the market.

Brian Rich, writing for Forbes, describes the economic illusion created by central banks buying stocks during a time of presidential prosecution:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Every single writer on the economy I respect has made the observation that we are headed for a severe market correction; the question is not if, but when.

HOW THE CIA-OPERATED A “DRUG SMUGGLING AIRLINE” FOR HEROIN & THE 9/11 CONNECTION

The CIA wasn’t just involved with the transportation of the drugs, however. The heroin was refined in a laboratory built at the CIA headquarters in Northern Laos. After about a decade of U.S. military intervention, SEA represented 70% of the world’s opium supplier. Unfortunately, many of the operatives became addicted to the heroin themselves. At the same time, SEA also became the main supplier of raw materials for the U.S. heroin industry. Though Air America apparently stopped operations in 1976, the CIA’s involvement in the opium and heroin industries continued in other parts of the world.

Uber driver charged on suspicion of raping female passenger in Santa Ana

An Uber driver has been charged on suspicion of raping a passenger in Santa Ana while she was intoxicated, authorities said Wednesday. Angel Sanchez, 36, of Costa Mesa faces one felony count of rape of an intoxicated victim, the Orange County District Attorney’s Office said, and up to eight years in prison if convicted. Prosecutors said the woman was at a company gathering in Newport Beach on March 30 when colleagues requested an Uber ride for her to her Santa Ana home. Sanchez picked up the woman in a 2016 Toyota Sienna and took her to a street near her home where he sexually assaulted her in the vehicle, prosecutors said.. The charge comes as Orange County attorneys and John Wayne Airport staffers are saying they will reassess the airport’s agreement with Uber in the wake of allegations that the company failed to investigate complaints filed against drivers contending they were driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

In the pictures, believed to have been shared earlier this week, the man singles out the Sikh passenger, writing: “Never mind I might not make it to Indy”.

House of Saudi Cards: The Inside Story

Just when geopolitical practitioners were betting on regime change in Qatar – orchestrated by a desperate House of Saud – regime change ended up happening in Riyadh, orchestrated by Warrior Prince, Destroyer of Yemen and Blockader of Qatar, Mohammad bin Salman (MBS).

Considering the impenetrability of that desert petrodollar family oligarchy impersonating a nation it’s up to a few foreigners granted access to make sense of the latest Arabian Game of Thrones. It also does not help that the “largesse” of Saudi – and Emirati – lobbies in Washington reduces virtually every think tank and hack in sight to abject sycophancy.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It sounds as though the royal House of Saud is about to implode, but not before it does a great deal more regional damage than it has already done in Yemen, which has been viciously savage, and was very much the brain-child of Prince Mohammad bin Salman.

The Saudi/UAE "conditions" to which Qatar is supposed to accede by 2 July (one week from today" are untenable to both Qatar and Turkey, which has about 3,000 troops on the ground here, and a military base.

Week after next week is the 4th of July Independence Day holiday in the United States; if Prince Salman moves against Qatar militarily, my guess would be that it would be on or around that date, when Americans are distracted with 4th of July festivities.

And I have to wonder; should that happen, what are the standing orders which have been given to the commanders of nearly 10,000 US military personnel working in Qatar?!?

Yemen Now Faces 'The Worst Cholera Outbreak In The World,' U.N. Says

Seized by violence and teetering on the edge of famine, Yemen is grappling with another danger that threatens to outpace them both: cholera.

"We are now facing the worst cholera outbreak in the world," international health authorities said in a statement Saturday.

Anthony Lake, executive director of UNICEF, and Margaret Chan, director-general of the World Health Organization, say that "more than 1,300 people have died — one quarter of them children — and the death toll is expected to rise."

They suspect that is because Yemen now has upwards of 200,000 cases to grapple with, and that number is growing quickly — by a rate of roughly 5,000 cases a day.

"And geographically, it is expanding," Mohamed El Montassir Hussein, Yemen director for the International Rescue Committee, told NPR's Jason Beaubien earlier this month. "It's not a small area. It's almost the whole country."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What is interesting is what this article doesn't say; which is, that as a result of US-enabled, Saudi blockade of Yemen's ports, which means food cannot get it, Yemeni children are dying from complications of malnutrition.

Images: Yemeni children dying from malnutrition

The Saudis and their American backers are not idiots; they knew that by creating this massive state of malnutrition in Yemen's kids, they were deliberately creating a condition where diseases would thrive, and cholera took up their invitation.

Another possible answer to the question of how this epidemic got so out of control so quickly, is the deliberate poisoning of Yemeni water systems with this disease; it would not have been the first time, historically, this has happened:

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. These biological attacks had little impact on the fighting capability of ZANLA, but caused considerable distress to the local population. The Rhodesians also experimented with several other pathogens and toxins for use in their counterinsurgency. [67]

Collective punishment is a war crime, period, end of discussion; and yet, the Saudi, US-enabled genocide in Yemen, including the assassination of innocent civilians; the blockade of ports creating malnutrition deaths in Yemen's kids, the subsequent diseases, like cholera, and the used of depleted uranium weapons, and the subsequent birth defects; cancers; and still births, continues here, unabated.

Closing Bank Accounts: Israel’s New Policy to Displace Palestinians Out of Jerusalem

Israel is closing the bank accounts of Arab institutions in Jerusalem in an effort to displace Jerusalemites and force them out of the city, the Department of Jerusalem Affairs has said.

In a press release, the organisation said the Israeli occupation’s moves against social, cultural, educational, relief, housing, legal or engineering institutions were political and go hand in hand with the Israeli policy of collective punishment against the defenseless Palestinian civilians in order to Judaise the city by force.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

How completely typical of Tel Aviv; an economic component to Israel's "Final Solution" of the "Palestinian Problem".

Lily Allen: We Can’t Gaslight an Entire Community Like This… That’s What’s Happening

In the maelstrom that has followed the Grenfell Tower fire, it has fallen to a perhaps unlikely figure to speak up for the residents and ask searching questions of the authorities.

Lily Allen lives in the shadow of the tower block and witnessed the unfolding tragedy in the early hours of June 14. Since then, she has been a constant presence at the scene, helping the victims and attempting to understand their concerns, but also giving commentary on the relief efforts and exploring the reasons behind the disaster.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

To the people who managed Grenfell Tower, the people living there were simply ...expendable. Decisions could be made about building materials, like the very flammable cladding which were profoundly, amazingly stupid, and short sighted.

The investigation here should be criminal in nature, not civil, and those people who willingly, and knowingly, made these decisions punished, severely, and the people of the UK should never have to live in unsafe housing again.

Lily Allen is a heroine to me, and I am sure, to many of those who had families, now lost, from this horrendous fire.

Trump’s Policy Is Clear: Civilian Casualties Don’t Matter in the War on Terror

? ecent news reports describe a massive increase in civilian casualties at the hands of the US military or US allies. In Mosul, Iraq, hundreds of residents have been killed as US forces join Iraqi troops in the last stage of their assault on the ISIS-held city. In Yemen, the United States is increasing its direct involvement in the Saudi-led air war being waged against the poorest country in the Arab world, as the UN and other aid workers struggle against mass famine and a looming cholera epidemic on top of the thousands already killed and millions displaced. And in Raqqa, Syria, US air strikes and white-phosphorus munitions have led to what the UN calls “a staggering loss of life,” as Washington provides backup to Kurdish and Arab forces now besieging the ISIS stronghold.

“Rarely a day goes by now when we don’t see three or four civilian casualty incidents…around Raqqa....” —AirWars

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This... is what "collateral damage" looks like in Yemen, courtesy of US military-enabled Saudi genocide against Yemeni children, killed outright, or maimed for life:

Images: Yemeni children killed or maimed from life, courtesy of Saudi bombings.

And the reason I keep posting images like this is, that in Yemen and Iraq, the US government and military are partners in war crimes.

As a Christian pacifist activist, it does not make me morally comfortable to be a citizen of a country which participates in war crimes.

US-Led Airstrikes Killed 472 Civilians in Syria in the Past Month

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights has issued a report today covering the civilian death toll of US-led coalition airstrikes in Syria over the past month, from May 23 to June 23, reporting at least 472 civilians, the largest in any 30-day period since the US started bombing Syria in 2014.

The attacks covered two provinces in Syria, with 222 civilians killed in Deir Ezzor, and the other 250 civilians killed in the Raqqa Province. Strikes against the area immediately surrounding Raqqa were nominally done in support of the Kurdish YPG’s advance on ISIS’ capital, the city of Raqqa.

In Deir Ezzor, much of the death toll was in airstrikes against buildings in the city of Mayadin, where huge numbers of civilian relatives of ISIS fighters were said to be killed, many of them young children. Over the two provinces, the Syrian Observatory counted 137 children killed in the US-led attacks.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights is a propaganda front, funded by the EU.

Document:The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights is a Propaganda Front funded by the EU

That being said, I would suspect that these numbers are very conservative, relative to the actual number of deaths created by US assaults in Syria.

Turkey to stop teaching Darwin’s theory of evolution in high schools

TURKEY will stop teaching Darwin’s theory of evolution in high schools, deeming it controversial and difficult to understand, a senior education official says.

Critics say President Tayyip Erdogan and the Islamist-rooted AK Party are undermining modern Turkey’s secular foundations by pushing a conservative agenda, including tighter regulation of alcohol and other restrictions, since coming to power in 2002.

A chapter entitled Beginning of Life and Evolution will be deleted from the standard biology textbooks used in schools and the material will be available only to students who go on to university studies from age 18 or 19, Alparslan Durmus, head of the national education board said in an online address this week.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The American comedian Ron White has a one-liner which absolutely applies here: "You can't fix stupid."

And this ham-fistedly, pig-headedly stupid move has obviously been done to dumb down Turkish high school students by people who utterly do not understand the incontrovertible science of evolution.

Preparing For War? US House Wants To Create First New Military Branch Since 1947

There’s currently a push in the halls of Washington D.C., to establish a new branch of the military by 2019, one whose focus would be operations among the stars. Proposed legislation by House representatives would create a “Space Corps” that would serve “as a separate military service within the Department of the Air Force.”

It would be the first branch added to the military since 1947 when the Air Force was officially established.

On Tuesday, the top two lawmakers of the Strategic Forces Subcommittee, Representatives Mike Rogers and Jim Cooper, added the legislation to the 2018 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). The subcommittee oversees military space operations and works within the umbrella of the House Armed Services Committee.

“There is bipartisan acknowledgement that the strategic advantages we derive from our national security space systems are eroding,” Rogers and Cooper said in a joint statement.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This concept makes sense, at a lot of levels.

NSA USES TRICK TO SPY ON AMERICANS

The government is spying on most Americans through our computers, phones, cars, buses, streetlights, at airports and on the street, via mobile scanners and drones, through our credit cards and smart meters, televisions, dolls, and in many other ways.

Yesterday, ZDNet reported that the NSA uses a trick to get around the few flimsy American laws on spying … they shuttle internet traffic overseas so they can pretend they’re monitoring foreign communications:

A new analysis of documents leaked by whistleblower Edward Snowden details a highly classified technique that allows the National Security Agency to “deliberately divert” US internet traffic, normally safeguarded by constitutional protections, overseas in order to conduct unrestrained data collection on Americans.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This... is why intelligent people either encrypt their communications securely, or only say very vanilla stuff in their emails or social media.

TWO ITALIAN ZOMBIE BANKS TOPPLED FRIDAY NIGHT

When banks fail and regulators decide to liquidate them, it happens on Friday evening so that there is a weekend to clean up the mess. And this is what happened in Italy – with two banks!

It’s over for the two banks that have been prominent zombies in the Italian banking crisis: Veneto Banca and Banca Popolare di Vicenza, in northeastern Italy.

The banks have combined assets of €60 billion, a good part of which are toxic and no one wanted to touch them. They already received a bailout but more would have been required, and given the uncertainty and the messiness of their books, nothing was forthcoming, and the ECB which regulates them lost its patience.

In a tersely worded statement, the ECB’s office of Banking Supervision ordered the banks to be wound up because they “were failing or likely to fail as the two banks repeatedly breached supervisory capital requirements.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Euro itself is set to fall and fail; it not a matter of if, but when.

FLIMSY EVIDENCE AND FRINGE SOURCES LAND PEOPLE ON SECRETIVE BANKING WATCHLIST

A CORPORATE DATABASE used by banks and other institutions to screen clients for crimes such as money laundering and terror financing has labeled dozens of U.S. citizens as connected to terrorism on the basis of outdated or unsubstantiated allegations. An analysis of a 2014 copy of the database, which is known as World-Check, also indicates that many thousands of people, including children, were listed on the basis of tenuous links to crime or to politically prominent persons.

The database relied on allegations stemming from right-wing Islamophobic websites to categorize under “terrorism” people and groups like the Council on American-Islamic Relations, several mosques, and national and regional Islamic organizations.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That databases like this can be used to smear people who are perfectly innocent of wrongdoing smacks of Orwellian wrong-doing on a ginormous scale.

There’s No Justice… In the US criminal justice system — Paul Craig Roberts

The criminalization of US citizens by the Injustice System is now one of America’s largest industries. Prisons have been privatized, and their inmates comprise cheap labor for Apple Computer and defense industries among many others. The United States of America not only has the highest percentage of its population in prison, it has the highest absolute number, substantially higher than “authoritarian China,” a country whose population is FOUR TIMES LARGER than the US but a country with fewer people in prison. -- That should tell Americans something. But they are too brainwashed to see it. The morons rush to the defense of the police, and they praise prosecutors for their wrongful convictions. In America, to be accused is to be guilty. Not even President Trump is safe from being falsely convicted by false charges and driven from office.
