IMF Chief Lagarde Found Guilty In French Tycoon Payout Trial

French judges on Monday found IMF chief Christine Lagarde guilty of negligence for failing to challenge a 400 million euro ($417 million) state arbitration payout to a business tycoon in 2008 when she was French finance minister.

The ruling risks triggering a new leadership crisis at the International Monetary Fund after Lagarde’s predecessor Dominique Strauss Khan resigned in 2011 over a sex assault scandal.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Demonstrating, yet again, that the folks at the top of the economic food chain are generally more crooked than a dog's hind leg!

TO BUST PEOPLE FOR BUYING CRACK, COPS ARE NOW MANUFACTURING AND SELLING PEOPLE CRACK

A reverse buy bust appears to be in the works for the Albuquerque Police Department, but the details of how they plan to go about catching low-level drug users — by becoming crack cocaine manufacturers — signifies everything inherently corrupt about the U.S.’ war on drugs.

Burque Media exclusively revealed APD’s intentions to become temporary crack manufacturers, after a confidential source shared the affidavit about the impending bust.

“Powdered cocaine may be taken into APD’s Criminalistics Unit to be made into crack cocaine,” reads the Affidavit and Motion to Release Evidence, dated February 25, 2016, and signed by a District Court Judge. In addition to the police-manufactured crack, APD is also permitted to use methamphetamine, cocaine, and heroin from its cataloged evidence stores to become drug dealers in order to catch individuals who use those illegal substances.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This reeks of entrapment, and is a stupid, and sick, way to increase drug busts, without ever really addressing the problem.

And of course, the high level drug cartel lords are never prosecuted; they have their drug money laundered by such prestigious institutions as HSBC HSBC, Too Big to Jail... Charged for Laundering Drug Money, and their executives never get charged for doing so.

Additionally, drug lords function at the highest political level in American society. Convicted Drug Felon proudly stands beside his friend, Hillary Clinton, beside the Whitehouse Christmas Tree

UKRAINE NATIONALIZES ITS LARGEST BANK, WHICH HOLDS 36% OF ALL DOMESTIC DEPOSITS

It was just a few short days ago, on Wednesday of last week, that Ukraine's largest lender, PrivatBank, said that reports it will be nationalized were attempts to create panic and destabilize the political situation in the country.

Fast forward four days, when late on Sunday night, the "attempts to create panic and destabilize the political situation" in Ukraine turned out to be true after all, and whether politically motivated or otherwise, the Ukrainian government announced hours ago that it would nationalize the suddenly very ironically named PrivatBank, unleashing one of the biggest shake-ups of the banking system since the country plunged into political and economic turmoil two years ago.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Ukrainian citizens are going to be furious, for having the burden of bailing out a failed financial institution added to the financial stresses they are already dealing with, considering the plummeting rate of their currency against currencies around the world.

Facebook's internet drone crash-landed after wing 'deformed' in flight

Facebook's plans to beam internet access from drones has crashed, literally, after the company revealed the first flight of its “Aquila” craft ended with a bang.

The United States's National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) late last week published a report about the incident that says “On June 28, 2016, at 0743 mountain standard time, the Facebook Aquila unmanned aircraft, N565AQ, experienced an inflight structural failure on final approach near Yuma, Arizona. The aircraft was substantially damaged.”

BRITISH CLUSTER BOMBS USED IN SAUDI ARABIA’S YEMEN CAMPAIGN, RESEARCH FINDS

Despite strenuous denials, UK-made cluster bombs are indeed being used by Britain’s theocratic ally Saudi Arabia in its war on impoverished Yemen, according to the government’s own inquiries.

The new details have emerged through a leak to the Guardian from sources which claim that internal investigations support claims in the media that the outlawed munitions are in use.

The source said that the findings had been known by the government for up to a month.

However, the paper has also been told that Saudi Arabia – a major UK ally and one of its top arms customers – has not confirmed itself that the banned munitions are being used.

The revelations seem set to pile even more pressure on the UK to stop selling arms to the authoritarian regime.

The UK is a signatory to the 2010 treaty banning cluster munitions, which drop many tiny bomblets from the main device and can create what is in effect a minefield.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Ah yes, cluster bombs: to little children, they look almost the same, and the coloration on them is identical, to that of humanitarian food packages. And when there is no adult around to tell them not to touch the bombs, they can shred curious children who touch them into almost non-recoverable bits.

images: cluster bombs and food aid packages

This is what cluster bombs have done to children in Yemen: (warning: this image is very graphic and disturbing, but needs to be shared)

Results of Saudi use of cluster bombs in Yemen

And a small memo to the UK's Prime Minister May; congratulations; the UK is now complicit in war crimes, just as are your American cousins in the US government!

I am certain you are quite proud of your arms industry, Prime Minister, and it is obvious that this illegal sale of cluster munitions made someone in the UK a killing; literally.

But hey, profits uber alles, right?!? No matter how many innocent children and non-combatants these weapons kill, that's the only thing which matters.

You and your predecessor, David Cameron, should be standing in the docks in Old Bailey for crimes against humanity here, in aiding and abetting the Saudi Government by having supplied them with these weapons; all the more so, because the UK is a signatory to the 2010 treaty, banning cluster munitions.

Unfortunately, this will only happen when pigs fly, because politically, power protects the criminals who have used it for ill purposes.

You might want to ask Bill Clinton about that, particularly with his little "runway encounter" with Loretta Lynch, to "persuade" her to not charge Hillary Clinton for having mishandled classified documents with her personal email server.

"THIS IS STUPID" - PENNSYLVANIA ELECTORS TO GET POLICE PROTECTION

While today's Electoral College vote is not expected, by most, to lead to any surprises, and Donald Trump will almost certainly be selected as the next president in a vote that is usually routine but takes place this year amid allegations of Russian hacking to try to influence the election, some states are not taking any chances and following last week's report that Trump electors have seen a flurry of death threats, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports that electors in Pennsylvania will have police protection as they cast their ballots on Monday.

One Pennsylvania elector, Ash Khare, told the Gazette that he receives thousands of emails a day trying to sway his vote.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is completely typical of the way in which the Clinton Cartel works; if they do not get the outcome they want, even though they have promised that they will abide by the rules, they threaten, and sometimes carry through on those threats.

That the Clintonistas are still in such deep denial about the reality that, because the popular election does not win an election in this country, but the electoral college vote does, is a very scary window into their mindset.

If they did not like the rules of the game, they should have seen to it that the rules of the game were changed before the election, rather than retroactively, because the results did not favor their candidate.

And the most delicious irony here, if you remember the debates, was asking Trump if he would abide by the election results; well, it now appears that it is the Clinton supporters who are pathologically incapable of abiding by the results, when their candidate lost.

Saddam Hussein should have been left to run Iraq, says CIA officer who interrogated him

Both President Obama and President-elect Donald Trump believe the United States never should have invaded Iraq in 2o03 (or, at least, Trump claims he now does). The war in Iraq and its chaotic aftermath in many ways prefigure the present moment in the Middle East; it triggered a sectarian unraveling that now haunts both Iraq and Syria and looms large in the minds of an Obama administration wary of further intervention in the region's conflicts.

Neocon Panic and Agony – THE SAKER

This is not a Democrat vs Republican issue, but a “deep state vs The People of the USA” issue.

There are clear signs that the Neocons running the AngloZionist Empire and its “deep state” are in a state of near panic and their actions indicate they are truly terrified.

On the home front, the Neocons have resorted to every possible dirty trick on the book to try to prevent Donald Trump from ever getting into the White House
Most experts agree that none of these tactics are going to work. So this begs the question of whether the Neocons are stupid, whether they think that they can succeed or what their true objective is.

If you have no time for details, I’ll tell you: it is a good, even very good development for Palestine and Palestinians, and it is likely to save Trump’s skin back home.

DNC Chair Says Russian Hackers Attacked The Committee Through Election Day

The chair of the Democratic National Committee said Sunday that the DNC was under constant cyber attack by Russian hackers right through the election in November. Her claim contradicts President Barack Obama’s statement Friday that the attacks ended in September after he issued a personal warning to Russian President Vladimir Putin.

“No, they did not stop,” Donna Brazile told Martha Raddatz on ABC’s “This Week.” “They came after us absolutely every day until the end of the election. They tried to hack into our system repeatedly. We put up the very best cyber security … but they constantly [attacked].”

Brazile said the DNC was outgunned in its efforts to fend off the hacks, and suggested the committee received insufficient protection from U.S. intelligence agencies. The CIA and FBI have reportedly concluded that Russians carried out the attacks in an effort to help Donald Trump defeat Hillary Clinton.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A memo to the now thoroughly-disgraced and CNN-fired (for feeding Clinton debate questions before the debate) Chair of the DNC, Donna Brazile: this utterly lame excuse (for which, apparently, you can not provide any tangible proof) for your candidate's election loss, will not change tomorrow's outcome at the electoral college; most likely, Trump will be confirmed as the 45th president of the United States.

But it is time for the Democratic party to come to terms with why their candidate lost, and do the post-mortem on the campaign your large donors are demanding.

First, the DNC did everything in its power (including primary election fraud, as will be evidenced in upcoming lawsuits) to prevent Bernie Sanders from receiving the nomination.

So having been robbed of the Democratic candidate voters felt they could get really behind, many "defected" to a Trump candidacy because they could not, in good conscience, vote for the candidate the DNC attempted to shove down the collective throats of American voters, Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Voters knew of her questionable business activities in the past; of her attempt at "peddling influence" through the Clinton Foundation's acceptance of money from such "human rights "stars" as Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and the Sultinate of Brunei. (All which chemically castrate, jail, and execute their LGBTQ citizens, and still permit female genital mutilation, BTW).

As Secretary of State, she improperly handled classified information on her personal computer, but the FBI and Loretta Lynch refused to prosecute, due to political pressures (bribes or death threats, perhaps?!?)

Voters understood that she did not have either the character or temperament to be President; they understood that she was a warmonger extraordinaire; she was the champion for US intervention in Libya, and had surrounded herself with advisors who never saw a potential US military misadventure they didn't love, including potentially invading Iran to please Tel Aviv, and most likely put us on a military collision course with Russia. Hillary Clinton: “If I’m President, We Will Attack Iran… We would be Able to Totally Obliterate The

She and her husband are the only Washington "power couple" I know with a dead bodies list trailing them, like a reeking albatross. Clintoln Body Count

Simply put, in searching their conscience, voters simply could not bring themselves to vote for this very flawed candidate the DNC attempted to shove down their throats, and voted for Trump instead.

It is high time that you, and the rest of the DNC, own what you did, learn from your mistakes, and move forward.

Russian hacking is not what destroyed your candidate, in the eyes of the American people; she did it to herself, and you and your colleagues, enabled her on that journey.

The time for fantasy, lies, and blame-gaming is over, or the Democratic Party is over; it is that simple a choice.

Two Lawyers Charged With Porn-Fueled Copyright Extortion Scheme

Two lawyers were charged Friday with a "massive extortion scheme" in which they uploaded X-rated films to file-sharing sites, sued the people who downloaded them — and collected millions from victims who feared public humiliation, prosecutors said.

Paul Hansmeier and John Steele actually produced some of the pornography, solely for the purpose of copyrighting it so they could file "sham lawsuits" used to shake down their targets, Minnesota U.S. Attorney Andrew Luger said.

"The conduct of these defendants was nothing short of outrageous," Luger said at a press conference hours after Hansmeier and Steele were charged with conspiracy to commit fraud, money laundering and perjury.

"Everything about their practice of law was fraudulent."

FACEBOOK PLANS TO BURY ALTERNATIVE NEWS

Facebook has decided to make it easier for Snopes, Factcheck.org, ABC News, the Associated Press, and PolitiFact to flag “fake news.”

What this means is alternative news stories the establishment decides are fake will be pushed down in the Facebook newsfeed.

“Facebook is giving fact-checking organizations a kind of power they’ve never had before: the power to publicly brand other websites’ stories as ‘disputed’ and push them down in Facebook users’ newsfeeds,” reports Vox.

PolitiFact has been accused of bias and serious errors in judgment by critics on the right and left.

The Knight Foundation, one of PolitiFact’s largest donors, gave $200,000 to the Clinton Foundation. Knight also funds the Poynter Institute for Media Studies, a journalism school owned by The Tampa Bay Times newspaper.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Facebook, prepare to be ignored by people who do not want censored news, and for alternative sites, like Gab, to take over like wildfire.

I truly think that a Chapter 7 bankruptcy for Facebook would be the best possible outcome here, because the presstitutes, always shilling the US government's agenda, tend to regurgitate the most dangerous "fake news" of all, such as: Afghanistan's Taliban did not turn over Osama Bin Laden, post 9/11, so the country had to be invaded by the US, and that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction.

Americans died, and continue to die, because of this fake news, including many of our best and brightest military personnel.

You see, it is rare when those who die, or get maimed for life, are the children of the elites who order the wars; it is generally always "someone else's kid" who is far enough down the "political food chain" as not to be of any political or moral consequence to those who create the wars.

When Karl Marx made the observation that "all wars are economic", he was entirely correct; in Iraq, it was about the oil, controlling who sold it, and insuring that it was only sold for the American dollar.

In Afghanistan, it was about the construction of pipelines, controlling who owned them, and again, making sure the oil was only sold in American dollars, coupled with potential control of its vast riches in mineral wealth.

And in that abomination of the war about which Americans hear very little, if anything, the US-government-enabled Saudi war against Yemen, is about the oil and natural gas that country holds, who controls it, and in what currency it will be sold. As reported at sputniknews.com in June of this year:

10 MASSIVE FAKE NEWS STORIES WESTERN MEDIA HAS BEEN FEEDING YOU ON ALEPPO

The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has secured control of Aleppo city after more than 4 years of fighting in what is Syria’s most strategically important city, second to the capital Damascus. Western media has chosen to explain this victory to the world as bad news for the interests of peace and humanity in Syria, claiming that thousands of civilians will now die from government retaliation.

The reason the battle for Aleppo is so significant in the Syrian proxy war is because of its strategic importance to the country of Syria as a whole. Controlling Aleppo would give opposition groups leverage in a situation where Syria is broken into pieces. It is also part of the geopolitical concerns over competing natural gas pipelines which would be built partially in Syria.

The battle for Aleppo has been described inaccurately for years and what follows is an explanation of 10 common lies or omissions which still continue today.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The narrative from the Western presstitutes has been nothing but a pack of lies from the beginning of this war against Syria.

This was never an internal "rebellion" in Syria; the jihadists attacking Syria were comprised of a western-backed, trained, and funded group of outside mercenaries, with the intent of causing "regime change" in Damascus.

And most recently we have seen nearly the most astonishing development to date: as reported on 16 December at 21stcenturywire.com:

At Least 14 US Coalition Military Officers Captured by Syrian Special Forces in East Aleppo Bunker

The nationalities of those arrested include: American; Turkish; Israeli; Qatari; Saudi; Jordanian; and Moroccan.

So let me get this straight; the alleged "bad guys" in this conflict in Syria are the very forces the US government is supporting, including those loyal to ISIL and Daesh?!?

It is painfully apparent, on the issue of these arrests, that those nations whose sole goal is "regime change" in Syria are pathologically incapable of thinking a scenario through to its logical conclusion.

And President Obama, here on Oahu, for his last multi-million dollar vacation on the taxpayers' dime, has now utterly lost his proxy war with Russia in Syria.

There is zero time left, in his administration, for him to order a "US boots on the ground" attack, as he mentioned he would love to do, during his last official news conference on Friday.

FIRST THYROID CANCER CASE IN JAPAN RECOGNIZED AS FUKUSHIMA-RELATED & COMPENSATED BY GOVT

A man who worked at the Fukushima nuclear power plant in Japan during the disastrous 2011 meltdown has had his thyroid cancer recognized as work-related. The case prompted the government to finally determine its position on post-disaster compensation.

The unnamed man, said to be in his 40s, worked at several nuclear power plants between 1992 and 2012 as an employee of Tokyo Electric Power Company Holdings Inc. He was present at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant during the March 11, 2011 meltdown. Three years after the disaster, he was diagnosed with thyroid gland cancer, which the Japanese Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare confirmed on Friday as stemming from exposure to radiation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is only reasonable that this this man getting compensated, although his death sentence from cancer will not be stayed; but what about Americans getting sick, and potentially developing cancer, from eating radioactive fish from Fukushima?!?

What does TEPCO intend to do for them?!?

U.S. Department of Transportation Drowsy Driving Quiz

You probably don't know this, but the feds conduct very expensive 'Commercial driver sleep studies' that cost as much as five million dollars per pop. Yes, they supposedly take this issue very seriously. It is indeed very important for commercial truck drivers to get their required proper sleep. When you're driving an 80,000 lb. vehicle that's nearly 70 feet long and 14 feet tall on icy roads, or even on sunny dry roads for that matter, it's imperative that you are alert and rested. Any idiot knows this. But cops across the country, as well as 'border patrol' officers inside the U.S. who aren't even near the border, continue to wake up sleeping truckers every day. This is very bad policy. It's reckless and puts lives at risk. Who's going to stop these bastards from violating people's rights and endangering the public!?

Obama warns of ‘fake news’ from ‘domestic propagandists’ while blaming Russia using ‘fake intelligence’ about US ‘fake elections’

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

President Obama spoke Friday blaming “domestic propagandists” for “fake news,” and blaming Russia for “hacking” into the DNC’s e-mails with “intent” of Trump becoming President. The irony is that Obama and the CIA present no evidence of Russian involvement in US “elections” that are fake enough to allow Clinton to steal the primary from Bernie Sanders, and that such a CIA alleged “leak” would be a crime of domestic espionage.

This “official” propaganda may be a move to remove Trump (and here), or at least intimidate him to stay on script for .01% interests for ongoing US rogue state empire.

Throughout the post referenced, there are several videos released by Pieczenik during the election season where he says that after the announcement came that Hillary would not be indicted, a small group within the intelligence community began leaking damning information to Wikileaks with the intention of finally putting an end to the Clinton corruption that has infected every nook and cranny of our government.

Trump’s people ignore Electoral College threat at their electoral peril

We'll see in a few days how the Electoral College gambit (Hillary's "Plan D" - the first three being rig the election [A], recounts [B] and Russia [C], all failed) plays out.

Anyone who has access to the Trump transition team needs to get one clear message through to them. This is, that the 2016 election is NOT YET over, and Trump could find himself on the evening of December 19th with the new President-elect, Hillary Clinton, having a majority of the votes in the Electoral College which votes that day; or having the election sent to the US House of Representative for the outcome to be determined, as happened in 1800, 1824 and 1876 (for different reasons).

George Soros Is Funding Facebook's "Third-Party Fact Checking" Organization Targeting "Fake News"

Behind almost every liberal crusade of the past several decades, from the blocking of voter ID laws to the Syrian refugee crisis, there has been one man quietly pulling the puppet strings from the background: George Soros. So imagine our complete shock when we discovered Soros to be the financing source behind Facebook's "third-party fact checking" organization retained to flag, and thus eliminate, "fake news."

Just yesterday, Facebook posted the following press release to their website detailing their plans to use a "third-party fact checking organization," known as The Poynter Institute, to flag "fake news." The role of the "fact checkers" will be to review news stories and flag anything they deem to be "fake" so that it can be deprioritized on Facebook's news feed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

But Soros is not the only source funding Poynter. As reported yesterday at blackistednews.com

Facebook is adding a new feature wherein a group that the Washington Post calls an ‘independent third party fact checker’ will decide whether stories are real or fake, and flag ones the group decides are fake. WaPo leaves out of its report that the ‘independent fact checker’, the Poynter International Fact-Checking Network, receives funding from a US government-funded group, the National Endowment for Democracy (NED), which award-winning, independent journalist Robert Parry and author William Blum document was created to perform tasks previously performed by the CIA. NED was created when “[t]he Agency was getting an exceedingly bad name, and it was causing the powers-that-be much embarrassment”, notes Blum. Parry notes that CIA director William Casey helped establish NED as a “U.S. government-funded organization” to “support groups inside foreign countries that would engage in propaganda [ie fake news] and political action that the CIA had historically organized and paid for covertly”, including “regime change”. At the time of the group’s creation, Casey ensured that “the language barring the participation of CIA personnel” was “struck from the bill”. The president of NED, neocon Carl Gershman, pointed out that “[i]t would be terrible for democratic groups around the world to be seen as subsidized by the C.I.A. We saw that in the 60’s, and that’s why it has been discontinued. We have not had the capability of doing this, and that’s why the endowment was created.” As Blum documents, the US has overthrown or attempted to overthrow more governments than any other nation. Most of these, he notes, have been democracies, such as the government of Honduras, which the Obama/Clinton regime helped overthrow in 2009, according to Clinton’s autobiography, and has been kept out of power through the use of death squads to kill human rights activists like Berta Caceres.

So, the bottom line here, is that Zuckerberg, the owner of Facebook, has hired the absolute MASTERS of fake news, to edit alleged "fake news" out of his product, which means anything which does not fit the US government's narrative.

Congrats, sir, in this choice, for having outed yourself as the supreme tool of Amerika's "deep state"!

Nearly 10,000 Trainees Exposed to Ricin During FEMA Terrorism Response Training

Okay…so the people teaching our first responders how to deal with a biological attack nearly killed them all with a biological accident. Ricin is one of the most deadly substances in the world. A dose the size of a few grains of table salt can kill a healthy adult.

FEMA (says they) ordered a low-toxicity version of ricin for some advanced training. Unfortunately, they ended up with the real deal at full octane. It was clearly labeled as the real deal, but no one from FEMA seemed to notice.

Out Of Prison, Barrett Brown Recommits Himself To Agitating Against Existing Order

After four years behind bars, journalist and activist Barrett Brown was released from federal prison on the morning of November 29, 2016, and ordered to report to a halfway house in Dallas, Texas. “I was picked up by my parents and Alex Winter and his camera crew,” Brown told Shadowproof. “They filmed me on the six-hour drive over to Dallas. We had to get to the halfway house by 4:00 pm, or it would be an escape charge. So, we barely made it.” “[The Bureau of Prisons] originally gave me less time than was necessary to get there, and I had to go in there and forcibly get them to give me an hour more,” he said. “They also told me falsely that I could go in any car, and it wouldn’t be any problem, when in fact I could actually go back to jail for not being in a registered car.”

China Responds: Will Return Stolen Drone, "Regrets US Hype"

China Sea to ensure the "safe navigation of passing ships," in one of the most serious incidents between the two militaries in years.

Chinese Defense Ministry spokesman Yang Yujun issued a statement late Saturday saying that a Chinese navy lifeboat discovered an unknown device in the South China Sea on Thursday. "In order to prevent this device from posing a danger to the safe navigation of passing ships and personnel, the Chinese lifeboat adopted a professional and responsible attitude in investigating and verifying the device," Yang said.

The statement said that after verifying that the device was an American unmanned submerged device, "China decided to transfer it to the U.S. through appropriate means."

The statement also accused the U.S. of long deploying ships "in China's presence" to conduct "military surveying."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This appears to be yet another US provocation of China, in a long line of provocations of China.

The good news is, that China has committed to returning the drone.

I hope Trump will be a great deal better for US/China relations than has President Obama.

U.N. chief urges Israeli lawmakers to reconsider settlement bill

Outgoing United Nations chief Ban Ki-moon on Friday urged Israeli lawmakers to reconsider a bill to legalize Israeli settlement homes on private Palestinian land as Arab states mull putting forward a Security Council resolution on settlements.

The Palestinians want an independent state in the West Bank, Gaza and East Jerusalem, areas Israel captured in a 1967 war. Most countries and the United Nations view Israeli West Bank settlements as illegal and an obstacle to peace.

"I strongly urge legislators to reconsider advancing this bill, which will have negative legal consequences for Israel and substantially diminish the chances for Arab-Israeli peace," Ban told a U.N. Security Council briefing on the Middle East.

Israeli officials are concerned the bill could provide grounds for prosecution by the International Criminal Court in The Hague.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Good luck with that, Secretary Ban Ki Moon!!

The State of Israel will not rest until all Palestinians are either deported outside of Gaza, the West Bank and East Jerusalem, or slaughtered outright.

This is why the BDS movement must be successful; financial pain is the only thing the Israeli nation, and its leadership understand, in order to change their behaviour.

Indian Security Forces Are Blinding Hundreds Of Protesters With Shotgun Pellets

Indian authorities call the shotgun shells filled with hundreds of small metal pellets a “non-lethal” weapon for crowd control, but that does not make them harmless. They’ve inflicted a permanent toll on hundreds of Kashmiris hit by them.

Their faces are scarred. Their eyes are damaged or simply gone, replaced with prosthetics. And their psychological wounds run deeper still.

“What I miss most is being able to read the holy Quran,” says Firdous Ahmad Dar, 25, a Kashmiri man who lost vision in both eyes after being shot with the pellets during an anti-India protest in the troubled Himalayan region.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If any of India's military chain of command are ordering their soldiers to do this, they should be bloody court martialed, and right the heck now.

India could well have a Kashmiri revolution on their hands, if they don't stop this horrific violence against protesters.

Did Satellites Expose A Secret American Drone Hangar In A Saudi Desert?

Buried deep in the heart of one of the most barren deserts in Saudi Arabia, and the entire planet for that matter, a commercial satellite happened upon what appears to be a very modern airport that suddenly appeared out of thin air from one year to the next. What makes the airport even more mysterious is the fact that there are no planes on site and no government claims ownership of the facility. So, is this airport a mere "Border Guard" facility, as Google Maps would suggest, or did this satellite just happen to reveal the location of a secret U.S. military airport used to conduct drone operations in Yemen?

And it does seem somewhat odd that such a massive airport, with 3 large hangars, would be required to conduct "border operations."

While we may never know the true owner/function of this mysterious facility, we're almost certain that Russia hackers are behind the leak of it's location.

WATCH: Humiliating TSA body search leaves CNN’s Angela Rye in tears

Firebrand CNN political commentator Angela Rye was subjected to a humiliating body search while trying to board a plane to New York City on Wednesday night.

She posted the video to Twitter and alleged that the TSA employee who searched her twice touched her inappropriately.

Rye said she was singled out for a random search and that she had not set off any metal detector alarms. The TSA called a police officer when Rye asked why she was being singled out. Officials told her she could cooperate or be escorted from the airport by police.

Rye agreed, finally, to submit to the search, which covered every inch of her body, including an uncomfortable-to-watch probing of her genital area.

By the end of the search, Rye was shedding humiliated tears.

“I asked the police officer to film this so I can send to @TSA,” she wrote. “I’m hoping my humiliation will fix the system. #TSAVaginaMonologues”

NSA INSPECTOR WHO CRITICIZED SNOWDEN FOR NOT USING 'OFFICIAL' CHANNELS FOUND GUILTY OF RETALIATING AGAINST WHISTLEBLOWER WHO DID JUST THAT

National Security Agency (NSA) inspector general George Ellard, an outspoken critic of whistleblower Edward Snowden, personally retaliated against another NSA whistleblower, Adam Zagorin reported at the Project on Government Oversight (POGO) on Thursday.

An intelligence community panel earlier this year found that Ellard had retaliated against a whistleblower, Zagorin writes, in a judgment that has still not been made public.

The finding is remarkable because Ellard first made headlines two years ago when he publicly condemned Snowden for leaking information about the NSA's mass surveillance of private citizens, wherein Ellard claimed that Snowden should have raised concerns through internal channels. The agency would have protected him from any retaliation, Ellard said at the time.

Soros Funding Facebook’s New “Fact Checking” Group Targeting “Fake News” (Video)

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, or if you haven’t had any access to television, radio, or the Internet, then by now you’ve certainly heard all the fuss liberals and the mainstream media are making about what they are calling “fake news.” All we’ve heard about since Hillary’s shocking loss, is how “fake news” cannot be allowed to spread.

Just so there's no confusion, reporting that “Michael Brown had his hands up in the international signal for surrender when he was shot” was NOT fake news. Also, just to be clear, it was NOT “fake news” to report that a YouTube video was the catalyst responsible for the deadly attacks on Benghazi.

Jewish Power is now British Law – It’s Official!

By Gilad Atzmon

For years I have argued that Jewish power is the power to silence criticism of Jewish Power. Now, UK Prime Minister Theresa May has confirmed that my observation is spot on.

PM May has decided to accept the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) definition of antisemitism and to integrate it into British law.

According to the IHRA, “antisemitism is a certain perception of Jews, which may be expressed as hatred toward Jews. Rhetorical and physical manifestations of antisemitism are directed toward Jewish or non-Jewish individuals and/or their property, toward Jewish community institutions and religious facilities.”

US to ship 1,600 tanks to Dutch arms depot in ‘clear message’ to Russia

The US has started moving tanks to a storage facility in the Netherlands in a bid to “deter” Russia, amid the biggest NATO buildup in Europe since the Cold War.
A total of 1,600 vehicles are due to be stored at a six-warehouse complex in the southeastern village of Eygelshoven, near the Belgian and German borders. The Eygelshoven facility was originally opened in 1985 during the Cold War, when it was used by US troops to practice drills in case of a possible Soviet attack.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would like to politely point out to General Middendorp, the Nato High Command, the US Pentagon, and State Department, that the "Ukrainian crisis" was generated by elements of the US government, Soros Organisations, and the IMF to throw the duly elected Ukrainian President Yanukovich under a bus, and "anoint" the more Western-centric Poroshenko as President in 2014..

And BTW, before this writer goes to the false, "Russia annexed Crimea" story, let us remember that when the Crimean people realised that there was no legitimate government in Kiev, they first did a referendum of their people, to ask if they wanted to remain with Ukraine, or petition the Russian Federation to accept Crimean membership in that organisation. The people voted yes; the petition was accepted by the Russian Federation, and the Crimeans decided upon peaceful self-determination, in their break with Ukraine.

Of course, because Crimea had been the industrial powerhouse of Ukraine, but now it was about to become the industrial powerhouse of Russia, Ukraine and the US got mad enough to lie that Russia had simply annexed Crimea, when nothing could possibly be further from the truth.

The aggression here has been coming from NATO and the US, in the pre-positioning of weapons and military assets in such a way as to be encircling Russia.

Economics, Immigration and Terrorism: Europeans “Could See Civil War, Unrest And Utter Chaos” - Mac Slavo

It comes after months of warnings from experts – including top military brasses – that massive economic issues, mass immigration, and terrorism will lead to a full-scale crisis.

They have predicted this will affect the entire continent, eventually leading to civil war on the streets.

It seems that Switzerland’s Lieutenant General and Chief of the Armed Forces, André Blattmann, has foreseen what is to come. He warned last year:

[T]he combination of hybrid wars, the economy, and the refugee crisis would have “unforeseen dimensions”.

He then claimed social unrest was something Europe’s leaders and armies had to be prepared for.

The Swiss might be historically neutral, but they aren’t blind to the upheaval that could threaten stability both at home in their independent nation, and surrounding them on the rest of the European continent.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That no one in the EU could see this negative response coming to the effects of massive immigration from countries which do not accept the European mindset on anything, boggles the mind.

They are truly dealing with a "clash of civilizations" in Europe which could well engender a real civil war in EU member countries.

NSA Whistleblower Destroys Obama's Russia Narrative - "Hard Evidence Points To An Inside Leak, Not Hacking"

A group of retired senior intelligence officials, including the NSA whistleblower William Binney (former Technical Director, World Geopolitical & Military Analysis, NSA), have posted an open letter on consortiumnews.com that destroys the Obama administration's "Russian hacking" narrative. Within the letter, Binney argues that, thanks to the NSA's "extensive domestic data-collection network," any data removed remotely from Hillary Clinton or DNC servers would have passed over fiber networks and therefore would have been captured by the NSA who could have then analyzed packet data to determine the origination point and destination address of those packets. As Binney further notes, the only way the leaks could have avoided NSA detection is if they were never passed over fiber networks but rather downloaded to a thumb drive by someone with internal access to servers.

NDAA Would Allow US to Send Anti-Aircraft Weapons to Syrian Rebels

It wasn’t widely reported during the debate of the 2017 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), nor indeed was it mentioned in either the House or Senate versions of the bill, but the NDAA has a provision within it that would allow the US to send shoulder-fired anti-aircraft missiles to rebel factions in Syria.

The provision was slipped into the conference report by Rep. Ted Yoho (R – FL) during the conference to reconcile the House and Senate versions, and would allow such arms shipments so long as Congressional committees approve of the move.

Incredibly, Rep. Yoho had previously successfully put an amendment into the House version which forbade the US from sending any anti-aircraft missiles to the rebels at all. There was no amendment at all in the Senate bill, and Yoho presented the the new version as a “compromise” that would ensure Congress at least had some say on the secret weapons smuggling program.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am having an industrial strength, palm to forehead moment right now, at warp speed.

Apparently, Representative Yoho is unaware that the US government has been doing this for 4 years in Syria, in an effort to effect "regime change", and such efforts have gone spectacularly badly for the US.

He also appears to have forgotten that one of the classic definitions of insanity is doing the same thing, in precisely the same way, yet expecting a different outcome.

Starving Yemeni Children, Bloated US Weapons Makers

While the world is transfixed on the epic tragedy unfolding in Syria, another tragedy – a hidden one – has been consuming the children of Yemen. Battered by the twin evils of war and hunger, every ten minutes a child in Yemen is now dying from malnutrition, diarrhea and respiratory-tract infections. A new UNICEF report shows over 400,000 Yemeni children suffering from severe acute malnutrition. Without immediate medical attention, these children will die. The situation is so dire that over half of the entire nation’s 25 million people lack sufficient food.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US government, through its enabling of the Saudi government, has become complicit in its war crimes against the people of Yemen.

This is what life looks like through the eyes of a starving to death Yemeni child:

And yet, at this point in its history, sadly, it has become one, regarding the humanitarian catastrophe Yemen has become, courtesy of American governmental assistance.

A Chinese Navy warship has seized an underwater drone deployed by an American oceanographic vessel in international waters in the South China Sea, triggering a formal diplomatic protest

from the United States and a demand for its return, a U.S. defense official told Reuters on Friday.

The incident, the first of its kind in recent memory, took place on Dec. 15 northwest of Subic Bay off the Philippines just as the USNS Bowditch, an oceanographic survey ship, was about to retrieve the unmanned, underwater vehicle (UUV), the official said, speaking on condition of anonymity.

"The UUV was lawfully conducting a military survey in the waters of the South China Sea," the official said.

"It's a sovereign immune vessel, clearly marked in English not to be removed from the water - that it was U.S. property."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The first, logical question which must be asked is, was the drone actually in international waters, or did it somehow stray into territory the Chinese claims as theirs?!?

Was this a deliberate attempt by the US military to spook China's military by the use of this ocean-going drone, and was it being deployed for other than pure oceanographic research?!?

We certainly have more questions than answers right now.

Deaths Along Arizona Border Uncounted By Border Patrol

Between 2014 and 2015, fewer migrant deaths occurred between the US and Mexico, according to the US Border Patrol. At face value, this may seem good. However, the numbers do not hold up to state reporting that finds the numbers growing.

Paul Craig Roberts - How Come No One Involved in the Russian Hacking Conspiracy Talked?

The claims that the Russian government hacked US voting machines are absurd. Voting machines are not connected to the Internet. To hack a voting machine you have to be physically in proximity to the machine and use a hand held device. The machines can be programmed to throw the vote count to one candidate or the other, and there are other ways to interfere with elections. Possibly if a foreign power had server presence in the US, some precinct reports of results could be intercepted and altered, although a voice check over the telephone is an easy way to verify the electronic transmission. What is clear is that Russia cannot hack the voting machines.

Flint 2.0? Texas City Warns Residents Not to Drink or Use Tap Water

A Texas city began warning residents on Thursday that their water supply is contaminated and that they should avoid using the tap water in any form, including boiling, until an investigation is completed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If you take a look at the Material Safety Data Sheet, supplied by the company which manufactures it, this stuff is nasty:

Material Safety Data Sheet
INDULIN® AA-86

But someone had to be "asleep at the switch" at Valero's asphalt plant, if this happened the way Valero's damage control group says it happened.

Again, when safety standards are abandoned, bad things happen; with this event having happened to the local Corpus Christi water supply, it looks like it might be a while before the situation is brought totally under control.

Obama Says U.S. Will Retaliate for Russia’s Election Meddling

President Obama said on Thursday that the United States would retaliate for Russia’s efforts to influence the presidential election, asserting that “we need to take action,” and “we will.”

The comments, in an interview with NPR, indicate that Mr. Obama, in his remaining weeks in office, will pursue either economic sanctions against Russia or perhaps some kind of response in cyberspace.

Mr. Obama spoke as President-elect Donald J. Trump on Thursday again refused to accept Moscow’s culpability, asking on Twitter why the administration had waited “so long to act” if Russia “or some other entity” had carried out cyberattacks.

The president discussed the potential for American retaliation with Steve Inskeep of NPR for an interview to air on Friday morning. “I think there is no doubt that when any foreign government tries to impact the integrity of our election,” Mr. Obama said, “we need to take action. And we will — at the time and place of our choosing.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A polite, but strong, word of caution to President Obama; to accuse any foreign government of hacking the American election process, without any incontrovertible proof that such a thing actually happened, puts you on extraordinarily thin geopolitical ice, Mr. President.

And to double down with this accusation, and threat of retaliation, when your own Attorney General, Attorney General Lynch stated publicly, yesterday, that there was no evidence of 'technical interference' from Russia in this last election cycle?

Attorney General Lynch: No ‘Technical Interference’ From Russia During The Election?

Why is she making this statement, in the wake of your accusation and threat against Russia, sir?!?

Because the reality is, you cannot both be right.

NSA, FBI, and ODNI also say the CIA claim lacks foundation.

Ever since Trump was elected in November, President Obama, the Democrats, and Clinton, bruised by their stinging defeat, have been trying, desperately, to find something or someone to blame; fake news; anti-Clinton propaganda; and now, Russian hacking.

Your party bears the responsibility for this failure, first, by not allowing the candidate who could have beaten Trump, Bernie Sanders, to receive the the nomination.

The DNC party machinery used every possible trick in the book to keep this from happening, as the many lawsuits addressing this issue, will most probably prove.

And secondly, at the end of the day, Mr. President, you and your party must, inevitably, take responsibility for running such a deeply flawed candidate, whose history, health situation, and temperament, made her totally unfit for the White House.

So what do you, and the DNC, do now, and who do you groom for 2020?!?

If you and the DNC were smart, you would be looking for a candidate among your ranks who is bright, and relatively young, untainted by the kind of baggage and corruption which swirled at Clinton's feet like a cesspool when she was Secretary of State.

Her name...is House Representative Tulsi Gabbard, from Hawaii; she is a lady for whom I have a great deal of respect, although I am not, myself, a Democrat.

If the Democratic party wants to be perceived as having any shred of credibility whatsoever in the next election cycles, it must re-invent itself by returning to its roots as a fighter for justice for the underdogs in this country.

Because right now, the Democratic Party is perceived as an arrogant tool of the monied and entitled classes which has thoroughly abandoned those it allegedly represents, and has completely forgotten its history.

We Wanted To Find Troubled Jails, So We Counted The Bodies

In any given year, the vast majority of the thousands of jails in the United States do not report a single death. That makes sense. Jails are supposed to be controlled environments. You can’t get in a car accident behind bars. You shouldn’t be able to overdose on drugs or attempt suicide without a staff member noticing. If you have a health problem, jails should provide medical care.

But each year, about 1,000 Americans die in jail anyway. Many die without the public knowing why, or whether their deaths could have been prevented. Although the federal government collects data on jail deaths, it only publishes that data years later, and in aggregate, making it impossible to identify facilities that have particularly high death rates.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Simply put, the American penal system is engineered to fail; and part of that failure is the allowing these deaths to be simply put down to "prison collateral damage".

This many times happens to the poorest of the poor, who have absolutely no one to from the outside to advocate for them; so they get beaten; they overdose; and they don't get the medical care and the psychiatric screening they so desperately need.

Too many people, crowded into too few cages meant to hold perhaps one third to one half of its prison current population, is an absolute recipe for disaster.

And in order to maintain fat budgets, prison systems rely on the fact that the US penal system creates massive rates of recidivism, where the ex-con, upon release, offends again, gets convicted, and is sent right back to the slammer.

Other countries, like Sweden, are doing a far better job preparing their inmates for life outside prison walls, because the sole focus of incarceration is rehabilitation.

This makes sense to me, and their recidivism rate is far lower than that of the US because of it.

And I encourage you, if you haven't seen it, or are not a Michael Moore fan, please watch "Where to Invade Next", where, during one segment, he does a tour of a Swedish mens' prison. The appearance of the campus, coupled with the humanity with which these people are treated by their guards, is something we rarely see in American prisons.

Dear Mr. Trump

It was mighty gracious of the CIA to jump the shark before you even took office. That thug Brennan doesn’t look anything like a DCI to me. The great and noteworthy DCIs of yesteryear tended to resemble Fred Rogers or those elderly WASPs from the Consortium in The X-Files. Brennan looks like a minor character from The Sopranos, a leg-breaker for a loan shark in Jersey City or Paramus, or maybe a Teamster goon from Elizabeth. It’ll be great to see him go. The CIA needs a lot of work. Harry Truman recognized that, just a few years after he created it. Mission creep is the classic inherent flaw in any bureaucracy, and the CIA clearly overstepped its boundaries in 1953 when it overthrew the democratically elected Prime Minister of Iran, Mohammed Mossadegh, on behalf of the British Petroleum company. The moral trajectory and long-term effectiveness has been downhill from there.

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange to media: You are 'increasingly not very important'

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange on Thursday blasted US media outlets, contending in an interview that the power possessed by journalists had greatly diminished in recent years.

"They’re increasingly not very important," Assange said in a radio interview with Sean Hannity.

The Fox News host agreed: "So true."

Assange characterized the press as a "paper tiger" in the 2016 election and said the rise of new media had eroded the influence of traditional outlets.

"The old press is less important," he said.

Assange took particular issue with the "liberal press," blaming such journalists for a "degree of bias" that chased away readers.

"Readers see that. They feel it," he said. "They don’t like being lectured or told what to do. And they rebel against it."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It's been the coverage of this last election cycle by the Independent Media which gave Trump his opportunity to become the 45th President of the United States next January; I kind of feel warm and fuzzy about that!! :-)

PUTIN LASHES OUT AT OBAMA: "SHOW SOME PROOF OR SHUT UP"

Putin has had enough of the relentless barrage of US accusations that he, personally, "hacked the US presidential election."

The Russian president's spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, said on Friday that the US must either stop accusing Russia of meddling in its elections or prove it. Peskov said it was "indecent" of the United States to "groundlessly" accuse Russia of intervention in its elections.

“You need to either stop talking about it, or finally show some kind of proof. Otherwise it just looks very indecent”, Peskov told Reporters in Tokyo where Putin is meeting with Japan PM Abe, responding to the latest accusations that Russia was responsible for hacker attacks.

Peskov also warned that Obama's threat to "retaliate" to the alleged Russian hack is "against both American and international law", hinting at open-ended escalation should Obama take the podium today at 2:15pm to officially launch cyberwar against Russia.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Putin is asking the right question here; if there is incontrovertible proof by the US government that Russia hacked the election, why are they not presenting it?!?

And I would like to politely point out to the US government, that because of all the lies they have been telling the American public - and the world - Americans have become very skeptical of any accusations coming out of the mouths of any government official.

So, to the Obama Administration, I say; either prove this allegation, or please just go away quietly!!

US GOV’T, OLIGARCHS BEHIND PLANNED FAKE NEWS FLAGGING ON FACEBOOK

Facebook is adding a new feature wherein a group that the Washington Post calls an ‘independent third party fact checker’ will decide whether stories are real or fake, and flag ones the group decides are fake.

WaPo leaves out of its report that the ‘independent fact checker’, the Poynter International Fact-Checking Network, receives funding from a US government-funded group, the National Endowment for Democracy (NED), which award-winning, independent journalist Robert Parry and author William Blum document was created to perform tasks previously performed by the CIA.

NED was created when “[t]he Agency was getting an exceedingly bad name, and it was causing the powers-that-be much embarrassment”, notes Blum.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, this entity chosen by Facebook for its alleged "fact checking", is Poynter International Fact-Checking Network, which receives its money from a US government-funded group, the National Endowment for Democracy (NED)?

And NED was originally created to do things the CIA used to do, but, in essence, created "plausible deniability" for some of the CIA's more horrific actions, by being, technically, "one step away", so the CIA could not be blamed?!?

So folks, it's on: we are going to start to see massive censorship at Facebook, because it is a US government-funded which is doing its "fact checking."

It is very interesting to me that NED has historically been complicit in creating its own fake news, to further various government-desired agendas and outcome, including regime change in foreign countries, and the consolidation of power by US-centric regimes in those countries through practices like the use of death squads.

And Mark Zuckerberg‎, to think, for one millisecond, that you could pull a fast one on the American people, by using Poynter International Fact-Checking Network, funded by US-government sponsored NED, as your "filter" at Facebook, you have another thing coming.

So congratulations; you have now been exposed for being a superlative tool for the Deep State, by doing this.

So I will now move off your platform entirely, moving to alternatives which will not censor, and I encourage others to do so as well.

I think the best public response to this choice is a massive downturn n your company's profitability; and when people become aware of what you have done here, and they start to get angry, this may well be the outcome you see.

Congress Passes Bill to Start Putting RFID Chips in Disabled People (Video)

It was just last week, in a post titled, Start “Doubling Up On Your Prepping;” Countdown to Economic Collapse, when I quoted Mac Slavo who said:

-- “Now that the Western world has turned in the direction of Trump and Brexit, it may be that the bankster class is prepared to start the next phase.”

Several days after that post, came the news that the global elites were proceeding forward with their plain for a cashless society, and and why not test out a brand new program like that in a small country like India. As it turns out, over the last several years India (with a population of slightly over 1.2 BILLION people), the government has been installing biometric databases to read various body parts in even the most remote corners of the smallest towns and villages across all of India.

Wikileaks' founder Julian Assange goes on the offensive over claims Russia was behind Clinton email hack, saying Kremlin is NOT its source

Wikileaks founder Julian Assange flatly rejected U.S. intelligence claims that his organization received leaked Clinton emails from the Russian government, saying the allegations are part of a 'foolish' and 'dangerous' effort by Democrats to overturn Donald Trump’s election victory.

'Our source is not the Russian government,' Assange told Sean Hannity on his radio show on Thursday, in his first U.S. interview since the election. 'We have U.S. intelligence saying that say they know how we got our stuff and when we got it, and us saying we didn’t get it from a state.'

IF AMERICANS STOP CRITICIZING OUR GOVERNMENT, WE’LL STOP BEING AMERICAN

There is a giant push by governments and mainstream corporate media to censor criticism of the American government as somehow helping Russia.

That’s honestly one of the most anti-American, pro-Communist kinds of bullshit I’ve ever heard.

In reality, dissent is one of the most uniquely American values. As someone born and raised in the U.S., who has lived here my whole life, and who values the Constitution and the rule of law, I’m furious that idiots are pushing a Soviet version of censorship which would destroy what our forefathers fought and died for: freedom. I’m pissed off that they’re trying to destroy what makes us Americans.

As Georgetown history professor Michael Kazin wrote in the Washington Post:

Now, as throughout its history, the most effective way to love our country is to fight like hell to change it.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As a Christian Pacifist activist, I logically, peacefully, call my government out when its actions do not appear to be supporting We the People, but almost exclusively the mega-corporations, which fund politicians' campaigns, and those incidents seem to be rising exponentially these days.

I never advocate violence, because I understand that violence is something the Federal Government understands how to put down with extreme prejudice.

But I will continue to shine the light of witness on the lies the Federal Government consistently tells its citizens with impunity; and if, because those lies get exposed for what they are, and people have almost zero faith in the US Federal Government, it is that government's own fault, and not that of people out there attempting to analyze what the government is saying, and which of its agendas those lies support.

I will continue to advocate against these horrific, pre-emptive wars, which have broken this country, both fiscally and morally, and constantly urge the US government to resolve its geopolitical differences with other countries through hard-won good faith negotiations.

So, I really want to know; how in the name of heaven, is requesting logical, rational, citizen-centric behaviour from my government "somehow helping Russia"?!?
