Toronto: Too Much Public Space Devoted To Cars

Does Toronto have too little or too much public space?

Depends on what the “public” space is used for.

This seems such an obvious answer but one of Toronto’s best urban affairs writers can’t seem to separate the private cars from the public space they destroy.

There has been no new wave of killings prompted by the Philippines’ war on drugs, and reports to the contrary are “alternative facts”, an ally of President Rodrigo Duterte has told the UN Human Rights Council.
Duterte has received widespread condemnation in the west for failing to curtail the killings and address activists’ allegations of systematic, state-sponsored murders by police of drug users and dealers, which the authorities reject.

Dem Senator Wants Huma Abedin Investigated by Special Prosecutor

There have been plenty of calls to investigate Hillary Clinton’s top aide, Huma Abedin, for her role in Hillary’s email scandal. None of those calls, for reasons that ought to be obvious, have come from people within the Democrat Party.

That just changed, however — and it could have massive implications for both Abedin and her employer.

In an interview on MSNBC on Thursday, Connecticut Democrat Sen. Richard Blumenthal said a special prosecutor should be appointed to investigate Abedin’s handling of confidential material. Blumenthal’s comments came one day after FBI Director James Comey revealed during congressional testimony that Abedin may have illegally forwarded emails off of Clinton’s server to her husband, former Congressman Anthony Weiner.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Huma is the designated scapegoat for the email server scandal!

Victim of Yemen's war: the death of Jamila, aged 7

Look at that little girls face. That is what Americans allow the ghouls in the district of criminals to do to children all over the Planet. SHAME!

By Abduljabbar Zeyad | HODEIDAH, Yemen

Eyes half open and sunken deep into their sockets, little Jamila Ali Abdu already looked half dead for most of her 12-day stay at the malnutrition ward of Yemen's Hodeidah hospital.

Too weak to resist the march of disease and hunger in her war-battered country, the seven-year-old's tiny frame was swathed in a childishly bright green shroud and lowered by sobbing relatives into a dusty grave on Tuesday.

California Wants Another Tax, and This Time, It is "By the Mile"

Living in California is already hard enough on those who are being taxed to the hilt. But the Golden State thinks that it needs to make sure they generate more income, and now the socialists in charge want to tax space flights by the miles traveled.

Although this seems like it could be a joke, it isn’t. This is actually being considered in California, and will likely pass based on the state’s history of expanding taxation.

March On: Washington May Be Pushing Syrian Kurds' Plan to Extend Territory

Kurdish leaders are pushing for US support for a plan to extend their territory across Syria to the Mediterranean Sea, in order to create a trade route and bolster Kurdish enclaves in the North. The move may run into stiff local opposition.

In a mainstream media interview, Hediya Yousef, head of the Kurdish federalism project, said the Syrian Kurds wanted more territory in the North, in return for helping the US retake Raqqa from Daesh. He claimed the Kurds had a "legal right" to create a trade corridor to the Mediterranean.

Webmaster's Commentary:

War And Empire: The American Way Of Life

In the aftermath of Saddam Hussein’s 1991 attempt to annex Kuwait the U.S. deliberately destroyed much of Iraq’s water and sewer infrastructure.

The Pentagon even admitted on its website that these acts would lead to mass outbreaks of disease. These were certifiable war crimes under international law. After Saddam’s defeat the U.S. also imposed widespread sanctions on his regime that included preventing necessary medicines from reaching Iraq. Hundreds of thousands of Iraqi citizens perished as a result. In an infamous interview in 1996 Madeleine Albright, then the Secretary of State, was asked to justify the deaths of 500,000 children. She defended these atrocities by saying “I think this is a very hard choice but we think the price is worth it.” Twenty-one years have elapsed since Albright uttered her rationalization of this vicious barbarity and it has been virtually “disappeared” from the collective memory of Americans. But it is far from being the only one.

Iran minister warns Saudi Arabia after 'battle' comments: Tasnim

Iran will hit back at most of Saudi Arabia with the exception of Islam's holiest places if the kingdom does anything "ignorant", Tehran's defense minister was quoted as saying on Sunday after a Saudi prince threatened to move the "battle" to Iran.

"If the Saudis do anything ignorant, we will leave no area untouched except Mecca and Medina," Iranian Defence Minister Hossein Dehghan was quoted by the semi-official Tasnim news agency as saying.

"They think they can do something because they have an air force," he added in an apparent reference to Yemen, where Saudi warplanes regularly attack Iran-aligned Houthi forces in control of the capital Sanaa.

Dehghan, speaking to Arabic-language Al-Manar TV, was commenting on remarks by Saudi Deputy Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, who said on Tuesday any contest for influence between the Sunni Muslim kingdom and the revolutionary Shi'ite theocracy ought to take place "inside Iran, not in Saudi Arabia".

Webmaster's Commentary: 

To the current Iranian government; a word, please.

With President Trump's current "bromance" with the House of Saud, in terms of allowing US weapons to be sold to the Saudi Military, at massive profits for American weapons manufacturers, were I Iranian Defence Minister Hossein Dehghan, I would, perhaps, speak a little more cautiously.

The Deep American State elements of the Unhinged States of America, would love nothing better than to find a justification for a military attack against Iran; attacking Saudi Arabia would give them just such an excuse.

So please, let's ratchet down the tensions here, OK?!?

Liberal son of war refugees projected to win S. Korea vote

A former anti-government student leader, Moon Jae-in stands poised to succeed ousted leader Park Geun-hye, the daughter of the slain South Korean dictator who jailed him in the 1970s.

Moon, the current front-runner in Tuesday's election, has led a life that seems custom-made for a starring role in South Korean opposition politics.

The son of North Korean refugees, he waited in line as a boy in war-ravaged Busan for free U.S. corn flour and milk powder. Imprisoned as a university student for trying to topple South Korea's military rulers, the dictatorship later forced Moon into South Korea's elite special forces. He became a human rights lawyer and then rose to what the media called "King Secretary" to the last liberal leader of the country, with whom he worked to reconcile with North Korea. He later defended that mentor from corruption charges.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If, in fact, this man gets elected tomorrow, look for either a massive false flag to happen, to be blamed on North Korea, or an assassination attempt against him, because his policies are not to the liking of the American Deep State and the people in the bowels of power in the Unhinged States of America.

Website Will Mail Your Ashes to GOP Politician if "Trumpcare" Kills You

The left is terrified now that key provisions of Obamacare have been voted against by the House of Representatives. The American Healthcare Act, lovingly dubbed “Trumpcare” has not been signed into law. In fact, it hasn’t even passed the Senate. Yet if you die because of it, one website will make sure they mail your ashes to a GOP congressman.

The CIA has a long history of helping to kill leaders around the world

The attempt, according to the ministry, involved “the use of biochemical substances including radioactive substance and nano poisonous substance” and the advantage of this was it “does not require access to the target (as) their lethal results will appear after six or 12 months”.

The person directly responsible was allegedly a North Korean working for the foreign intelligence agencies.

A CIA spokesman refused to comment on the allegations.

But although such a claim cannot be dismissed as totally outlandish – given the long list of US involvement in coups and assassinations worldwide – the agency was forced to cut back on such killings after a US Senate investigation in the 1970s exposed the scale of its operations.

Following the investigation, then president Gerald Ford signed in 1976 an executive order stating: “No employee of the United States government shall engage in, or conspire in, political assassination.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Deep American State, as represented by the CIA, continues to have its collective hands soaked in blood.

Russian outlet Sputnik falls out of D.C. media orbit with denied bid for Capitol Hill credentials

Sputnik, a news service owned and operated by the Russian government, has lost its bid to be permanently credentialed on Capitol Hill over its direct ties to Moscow.
The Congressional Periodical Press Gallery has denied Sputnik’s request for a permanent media pass, Politico reported Friday, dashing for now the outlet’s odds of closer access to Washington’s movers and shakers.
Composed of a rotating group of accredited journalists, the Periodical Press Gallery assists bona fide print and digital correspondents with press-related questions and issues concerning the House and Senate, according to its website. Additionally, gallery membership also lends to approved outlets receiving greater access on Capitol Hill while also typically opening doors to other centers of power in Washington, like the White House and Supreme Court, Politico reported.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Folks, this is a "canary in the coal mine moment" here, with regard to the further demonization of Russia in the Unhinged States of America, in preparation for war against it.

Washington Plans to Nuke Russia and China

OKLAHOMA GOVERNOR SIGNS ANTI-PROTEST LAW IMPOSING HUGE FINES ON “CONSPIRATOR” ORGANIZATIONS

A STATUTE AIMED at suppressing protests against oil and gas pipelines has been signed into law in Oklahoma, as a related bill advances through the state legislature. The two bills are part of a nationwide trend in anti-protest laws meant to significantly increase legal penalties for civil disobedience. The Oklahoma law signed this week is unique, however, in its broad targeting of groups “conspiring” with protesters accused of trespassing. It takes aim at environmental organizations Republicans have blamed for anti-pipeline protests that have become costly for local governments.

The statute Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin approved Wednesday was rushed into immediate effect under a provision that declared the situation “an emergency.” It will dramatically increase penalties against protesters who trespass on property containing a “critical infrastructure facility.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This law should die an ignominious death, if in fact it is ultimately tested at the Supreme Court Level; however, given the state of American jurisprudence at this moment in this country's history, one has to doubt that arguments against it might even get heard.

Yes, I am cynical; but there are moments when I just cannot keep up!!

Jordan, US launch Eager Lion military exercise

Jordan and the United States kicked off Eager Lion, an annual military exercise with about 7,400 troops from more than 20 nations taking part, on Sunday.

US and Jordanian officials said the manoeuvres would include border security, cyber-defence, and "command and control" exercises to bolster coordination in response to threats including "terrorism".

"Joint efforts and coordination and the exchange of expertise ... are needed at the time when the region is facing the threat of terrorism," Jordanian Brigadier-General Khalid al-Sharaa, who will head the exercise, told reporters.

US Major-General Bill Hickman, deputy commanding officer for the American army in the region, said this year's Eager Lion exercise - the seventh so far - is "the largest and most complex to date".

These Nuclear Breakthroughs Are Endangering the World

At a time of growing tensions between nuclear powers – Russia and NATO in Europe, and the US, North Korea, and China in Asia – Washington has quietly upgraded its nuclear weapons arsenal to create, according to three leading American scientists, “exactly what one would expect to see, if a nuclear-armed state were planning to have the capacity to fight and win a nuclear war by disarming enemies with a surprise first strike.”

Writing in the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists, Hans Kristensen, director of the Nuclear Information Project of the Federation of American Scientists, Matthew McKinzie of the National Resources Defense Council, and physicist and ballistic missile expert Theodore Postol conclude that “Under the veil of an otherwise-legitimate warhead life-extension program,” the US military has vastly expanded the “killing power” of its warheads such that it can “now destroy all of Russia’s ICBM silos.”

At Least 50 Afghan Soldiers Killed as Pakistan Overruns Border Checkpoints

The situation at the Afghanistan-Pakistan border is always tense, particularly after Friday’s exchange of fire between the two sides, but appears to be rapidly spiraling out of control, as Pakistani forces have attacked and destroyed several checkpoints along the Chaman border, which connects Balochistan to Kandahar.

At least 50 Afghan soldiers are reported dead, and over 100 wounded, as Pakistan reports they’ve destroyed five separate checkpoints in “retaliation” for Afghan fire. There was no news of new Pakistan casualties since Friday’s exchange of fire.

Locals say that the border crossing was closed earlier in the day by Pakistani security officials, and has remained so, with loudspeakers ordering all villages on the Pakistani side of the border evacuated until further notice. Helicopter gunships are reported overhead, and over 2,000 families have been displaced.

WHAT'S KILLING THE MIDDLE CLASS?

The rising asymmetry of rewards within our economy has many drivers.

We all know the middle class that actually owns capital and wields political influence is shrinking. As I noted last week in Redefining the Middle Class: It Isn't What You Earn and Owe, It's What You Own That Generates Income, defining the middle class by household income alone is a misleading metric, as it leaves out the critical factors of debt and ownership of productive assets.

A household may have an income of $150,000 and appear well-off by that metric, but if they are mired in debt and own virtually no productive assets or wealth that can be passed on to future generations, they aren't middle class--they're well-paid proletariats.

So what's killing the middle class? If you read the dozens of articles on the decline of the middle class in the mainstream (corporate) media, you soon discover there's a short list of the usual suspects:

1. Globalization / outsourcing

Hillary Clinton Ties Herself To Macron’s Victory Over Le Pen, Attacks The Media

Hillary Clinton attempted to tie herself to French President-elect Emmanuel Macron’s runoff victory over far-right candidate Marine Le Pen on Sunday.

Clinton posted a tweet calling Macron’s election a victory for “the world” and a “defeat” to the hackers who released Macron’s emails to the public shortly before the election, but then turned the focus towards herself, claiming “the media says I can’t talk about that.” Clinton is known to have staffers carefully craft and edit her tweets before posting.

The tweet is the latest step in Clinton’s return to politics amid public speculation that she will run for president a third time in 2020.

While speaking at a televised women’s event last week, Clinton declared herself a member of the anti-Trump “resistance” and blamed FBI Director Jim Comey and Russian interference for her loss to Donald Trump.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And there you have it; Just as she is pathologically incapable of accepting responsibility for what happened at Benghazi, she is also pathologically incapable of understanding why she lost last year's election.

And she lost it because she is perceived (and rightly so) as thoroughly corrupt; carrying more baggage than does Kim Kardashian on a photo shoot; absolutely not having the temperament for the job; painfully incapable of connecting with the Democratic Party's base; and imbued with a snotty sense of inevitability of her ultimate political victory.

She may have been the American Deep State's "wet dream", in terms of her martial proclivities; but unfortunately, President Trump is proving himself thoroughly pliable to its agenda.

The wars continue, and increase; and what is left of the middle class is continuing to get snuffed out of existence, economically; and I hate to admit this, but I am seeing a very dystopian vision of the future of this country at this moment.

Saudi Exceptionalism: Trump hates radical Islam, except when you can make money from it

It’s hard to fully capture the irony — not to mention sheer repulsiveness — of Donald Trump’s decision to make Saudi Arabia the first stop on his inaugural foreign trip as US president.

The decision marks yet another rapid rhetorical turnaround for Trump. Candidate Trump was not a fan of the Saudi kingdom. In fact, he was not shy at all about calling Riyadh out in ways that his political opponents dared not dream of.

Trump’s righteous indignation and anger towards the Saudis dissipated almost immediately, however, upon taking office. This has been much to the delight of Washington neocons who have been eager to see more aggressive US policy toward Iran, Riyadh’s top regional foe.

As for all that money Clinton accepted? Well, Saudi cash is just fine if it lines the pockets of arms manufacturers Lockheed, Raytheon and BAE Systems. To quote Voltaire: When it comes to money, everyone is of the same religion.

Arms deals and Yemen slaughter

What's Behind FBI Head Comey Calling Russia the 'Greatest Threat'

Earlier this week, during his testimony in the United States Senate, FBI Director James Comey said that Russia is the "greatest threat of any nation on Earth" to the democratic process in the United States.

During the hearing, South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham asked Comey what kind of "threat" Russia presents to the "democratic process."

"Certainly, in my view the greatest threat of any nation on Earth, given their intention and their capability," Comey answered.

He also claimed that Moscow is still involved in attempts to influence politics in the United States.

Commenting on Comey’s remarks, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said at a press briefing: "I think that’s the view of the FBI. We rely on them and the rest of the intelligence community to provide the president with updates on what they are learning."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Comey did not elaborate on evidence against Russia; all he has are allegations, with utterly no substance behind them, with which to demonize Russia, because he understands that the American Deep State ultimately wants war against both Russia and China to destabilise the ruble and the yuan.

Exactly two weeks after North Korea arrested Tony Kim, a Korean-American professor in his 50s at Pyongyang International Airport as he was leaving North Korea, Kim Jong-Un has again provoked the US and overnight North Korea detained another U.S. citizen tied to the Christian-backed university in Pyongyang. According to the report issued on Sunday by North Korea’s official Korean Central News Agency, Kim Hak-song was arrested for committing “hostile acts”, and works for the Pyongyang University of Science and Technology (PUST), a university founded in 2010 by James Kim, a Korean-American Christian businessman.

"A relevant institution of the DPRK detained American citizen Kim Hak Song on May 6 under a law of the DPRK on suspension of his hostile acts against it,"KCNA said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I frankly don't think President Trump is going to really act here, unless Kim Jung Un does something spectacularly idiotic, like test a nuclear weapon, or missile yet again.

I am sure that Kim Jung Un wants to see the "Sunshine Candidate" elected this coming Tuesday in South Korea's Presidential election, and would be singularly unwilling to launch anything which might compromise the election's outcome against him.

California Wants To Tax Space Flights... By Miles Traveled

It appears that California's politicians & regulators spend all their time trying to figure out how to tax something new. They will never reform, it’s always give me more.

They want to tax space travel per mile and claim 62 miles above California belongs to the State. Sooner or later, they will want a tax from all satellites that just pass by their state once a day.

The space launches are taking place from Vandenberg Air Force Base, in Santa Barbara.

Any company should look for prosperity in Texas or Florida and forget California.

The state is beyond help at this stage.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As a native California, I know I could never go back there to live; unfortunately, the state has, collectively, lost its mind.

The Inflection Point: Venezuela's Military Begins To Defect, March With Protesters

One month ago, when discussing the latest "explosive" turn in Venezuela's political situation, we predicted that the worst case for president Nicolas Maduro who has so far managed to keep the army on his side even as Venezuela faces now daily violent and in some cases deadly protests, would be the start of the local army turning on the regime, and defecting to join the protesters. Overnight, according to Thor Halvorsen of the Human Rights Foundation, this "inflection point" appears to have arrived when he observed in a Tweet that "the military in parts of Venezuela has begun to defect. They are now marching *with* the protesters. Dozens of soldiers are under arrest."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am quite certain that there are a number of people in the bowels of DC who are very pleased with this outcome, and may well have been instrumental in bringing it about.

I am sure also that there is a "candidate du jour" the US government has waiting in the wings to bring Venezuela into the US dollar hegemony, once Maduro is well and truly overthrown.

TRUMP ADMINISTRATION FIGHTS IN COURT TO PREVENT TOP CIA OFFICIAL FROM TESTIFYING ON TORTURE

MORE THAN EIGHT YEARS after President Obama formally ended the CIA’s torture program, the Trump administration is fighting to block the CIA’s new deputy director from providing a deposition about her role in pioneering the agency’s most abusive torture techniques.

The Trump administration appointed Gina Haspel as deputy director of the CIA in February, attracting criticism from human rights advocates due to her former role in abusive interrogations. The move was interpreted as a public sign of the administration’s approval for some of the CIA’s most brutal abuses after the 9/11 attacks.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why am I not surprised that President "Deep State" Trump should be making such a move, to defend one the chief torturers from the Bush administration?!?

Jan Egeland, who heads the Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC), says that seven million Yemeni people are on the brink of famine. "I am shocked to my bones," said Egeland, following a five day visit to Yemen. "The world is letting some 7 million men, women and children slowly but surely be engulfed…" Egeland blames this catastrophe on "men with guns and power in regional and international capitals who undermine every effort to avert an entirely preventable famine, as well as the collapse of health and educational services for millions of children." Egeland and the NRC call on all parties to the conflict, including Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Iran, the US and the U.K. to negotiate a cease fire.

This weekend, the situation stands poised to become dramatically worse with the apparently imminent bombing, by Saudi Arabia, one of the US’ closest allies, of the aid lifeline which is the port of Hodeida.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The citizens of Yemen are dead people walking, about to be assassinated by the twin plagues of slow famine by starvation, or a quicker, but no less brutal end, through Saudi bombing strikes, to bring back the rule of the Al-Hadi government.

They are generally poor; and in wars like this, the poor are irrelevant,and whose lives should be snuffed out as quickly as possible.

It appears that the House of Saud; the Saudi government and Military, and the US government and military have, collectively, had their consciences surgically removed, to allow this genocide to continue, because it is the means to the end of re-installing the US-appointed Yemeni puppet, Mansour Al Hadi.

I am rather astonished that the US military hasn't been using MOABS and other bombs to completely destroy the civilian population here, because at the end of the day, this appears to be the Saudi and US government and military's design intent.

The USS George H.W. Bush, an American aircraft carrier parked perpetually off the coast of Iran, appears to have attracted the attention of Iran, and officials say that Iran’s use of surveillance drones to keep an eye on the massive US warship is a “nuisance.”

Officials also hyped the presence of small Iranian naval boats operating off the coast of Iran, claiming them to be “naked aggression” for sometimes being close to the US carrier, despite also appearing to have never actually left Iranian waters by all indications.

US officials have repeatedly made a big deal about Iran having ships off their own coast, while Iranian officials have responded by saying that they think a better question is why the US warships are 7,500 miles away from their own territorial waters, and constantly looming around Iran’s coasts.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Does the Iranian military have aircraft carriers right off the Gulf of Mexico?!?

the short answer here is, no.

I rest my case.

Israel: Doctors refusing to force treatment on Palestinian hunger strikers must find their own replacement

Doctors who refuse to force treatment on hunger striking Palestinian security prisoners whose lives are in danger must find another physician willing to treat the patients, the Health Ministry ordered.

Over 1,000 Palestinian security prisoners in Israeli prisons, mostly Fatah members led by Marwan Barghouti, began a hunger strike on April 17, demanding additional privileges, and most are still continuing with their strike.

In a letter distributed to Israeli hospitals on Wednesday, the Health Ministry refreshed the regulations and procedures concerning hunger strikers as part of the preparations for treating the striking prisoners, hundreds of whom are still not eating.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Force-feeding prisoners through an NG tube, is no easy feat, even if the person doing so is both well-trained, and completely humane, as the British found out during the time of "the troubles" in Northern Ireland.

Some of these men are still going to die, and become martyrs for their cause, which is the polar opposite of the outcome Israel wants for these prisoners.

And when word gets out, the furor from the Palestinian community is going to, possibly, take a very brutal, and unexpected course.

US Dismisses Ban on Aircraft Over Syrian Safe Zones

A day after the US gave tepid support for the establishment of Syrian safe zones to try to separate combatant forces and reduce the amount of fighting, they appear to have noticed that this might get in their way of their own attacks across the country, and are pledging to ignore the demilitarization of the zones.

Back when Turkey and the US were both super keen on the idea of safe zones, a big selling point was the imposition of no-fly zones over the areas, to keep the civilians within getting bombed. This was also a big obstacle, as the US wasn’t totally clear it could do this without declaring war on Russia.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I don't know what, precisely, the Vegas odds of the US government getting into direct military confrontation with Russia over Syria might be, but I would imagine, right now, that they are quite good.

Iraqi Prime Minister Says No US Combat Troops Will Remain After Daesh Ousted

Iraq's prime minister has said there will be no lingering US combat troop presence in his country after the battle to remove Daesh is finished, contradicting earlier reports.

Officials from both countries on Thursday reportedly said talks were ongoing regarding maintaining US combat troops in Iraq after Daesh is ousted, but Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi said in a statement on Twitter on Friday that no US troops would stay on.

Putin ‘orders Gazprom to start laying pipes along Turkish Stream’s sea route’

Gazprom will be ready to start laying pipes on the Turkish Stream offshore section in several days, the company’s CEO Alexei Miller told Russian President Vladimir Putin on May 4, as Russia’s TASS reported.

Putin has ordered Gazprom to start laying pipes on sea stretch of Turkish Stream pipeline.

“We will be ready to start laying the Turkish Stream gas pipeline in several days,” Miller said, as quoted by the Russian news agency.

The Turkish Stream natural gas pipeline project agreement between Turkey and Russia was signed on Oct. 10, 2016, and ratified by Russian President Vladimir Putin on Feb. 7.

The project, which was announced by Putin during a 2014 visit to Turkey, is set to carry gas from Russia under the Black Sea to Turkey’s Thrace region.

One line, with 15.75 billion cubic meters of capacity, is expected to supply the Turkish market, while a second line will carry gas to Europe.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is a big deal, in light of the US government's objections against such a pipeline, because of how it will benefit Russia, economically, particularly in light of the natural gas which will be sold to Russia.

RUSSIA DEPLOYS CRUISE MISSILE FRIGATE TO MEDITERRANEAN

Russia’s newest cruise-missile warship is on course to join Moscow’s naval forces off the Mediterranean coast of Syria, Russian news agency Interfax reported Friday.

The Ministry of Defense announced in a statement that the frigate, which has been at the navy’s disposal for less than a year, will join Russia’s Mediterranean naval forces while on its way from its previous area of deployment, the Baltic Sea, to its home port in the Black Sea.

Russia has no Mediterranean fleet unit and during the civil war in its ally Syria, has periodically sent ships from either its Black Sea or Baltic Sea bases in the waters nearby. Russian President Vladimir Putin oversaw the formation of such a unit of up to 10 ships in 2013 that has relied on rotational deployments, supported by Russia’s Syrian port in Tartus.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This deployment is meant to serve as a signal to the US military to get out of Syria; unfortunately, it is deliberately not being heard by the Trump Administration. And on Friday also, we had the following development happen:

Pentagon Deploys Troops to Turkey's Border With Syria

How many more US ground troops are actually in Syria, we will never know, because US military deployments are no longer allowed to be released to the general public.

But there is something I do know, in terms of the geopolitical tensions between the US and Russia regarding Syria; something wicked this way comes.

It is only a matter of time before there is direct conflict between US and Russian forces in Syria, and there appears to be no way to ultimately prevent that from happening, since war against both Russia and China appear to be a long-planned goal of the US government, in order to maintain the dollar's world hegemony.

The people who will get killed, or maimed for life, globally, by such a war, are irrelevant to those slavishly supporting the money junkies to that end.

Please remember; in the USA, your votes mean nothing, and you are of no use, unless you are one of the richest portions of America's demographic; and those people have marvelously stylish, well-provisioned shelters in which to ride out the apocalypse.

The Deep American State, and its very martial agenda, continues, no matter how you voted.

RFK JR.’S TUCKER CARLSON INTERVIEW PROMOTES HEALTHY DEBATE ABOUT VACCINE SAFETY

By Robert J. Krakow of Law Office of Robert J. Krakow, P.C.

To the Daily Kos Blog:

In response to the article you published: Robert F Kennedy, Jr and vaccines – why real journalists don’t interview him”

Dorit Reiss misses the point on vaccine manufacturer immunity.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These points are very important for caring, thinking parents to understand.

And if you have not seen it, buy or rent, on TV, the documentary "Vaxxed". It bears powerful witness to the reality that the CDC played fast and loose with the facts about data they had on children getting injured from vaccinations, and cherry picked the statistics they used in their documentation, which conveniently ignored data which might be shown as "devastating harmful" to the health and welfare of children's lives.

It is absolutely worth seeing, and Mike and I encourage people to see it.

DESPITE CONCERNS OVER POSSIBLE WAR CRIMES, US CONSIDERS MULTI-BILLION DOLLAR SAUDI ARMS PACKAGE

Despite the devastating and murderous war being waged on the people of Yemen by Saudi Arabia, Washington is working to ram through contracts for tens of billions of dollars in weapons for the despotic monarchy ahead of U.S. President Donald Trump’s trip to the kingdom this month, Reuters reports.

Saudi Arabia is Trump’s first stop on his maiden international trip, a sign of his intent to reinforce ties with the U.S.-allied al-Saud dynasty. The kingdom’s human rights record, both inside and outside the country, has been dismal, and the country has regularly faced condemnation for its open disdain for international law in its onslaught on Yemeni civilians.

The United States has been the main supplier for most Saudi military needs, from F-15 fighter jets to command and control systems worth tens of billions of dollars in recent years. Washington also provides maintenance and training to Saudi security forces.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

President Trump has made one thing crystal clear; no matter the genocide and carnage Saudi Arabia will create with these weapons in Yemen, Trump will greenlight the sales of such weapons, because they make American weapons manufacturers more wealthy.

These actions are completely consistent with our "profits uber alles" figurehead of a President, who apparently has the morality of a dead tree stump.

Kushner family sells $500,000 'investor visa' to rich Chinese at Beijing ballroom event

The Kushner family came to the United States as refugees, worked hard and made it big - and if you invest in Kushner properties, so can you.

That was the message delivered Saturday by White House senior adviser Jared Kushner's sister to a ballroom full of wealthy Chinese investors, renewing questions about the Kushner family's business ties to China.

Over several hours of slide shows and presentations, representatives from the Kushner family business urged Chinese citizens gathered at the Ritz-Carlton hotel to consider investing hundreds of thousands of dollars in a New Jersey real estate project to secure what's known as an investor visa.

The EB-5 immigrant investor visa program, which allows foreign investors to invest in US projects that create jobs and then apply to immigrate, has been used by both the Trump and Kushner family businesses.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Forgive me, but this screams blatant "conflict of interest", and using the power of Trump's presidency for personal financial gain.

Top US general affirms pledge to 'de-conflicting' operations in Syria with Russian counterpart

The top U.S. military officer General Joseph Dunford and Russia’s military chief of staff affirmed their commitment to avoid clashes in the crowded airspace over Syria, the Pentagon said Saturday.

Dunford, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and General Valery Gerasimov chatted on the phone hours after a new Syria ceasefire plan creating “de-escalation” zones went into effect with the backing of Russia, Iran and NATO-ally Turkey.

The two generals agreed to maintain their “commitment to de-conflicting” their respective military operations in the war-ravaged country, Dunford spokesman Capt. Greg Hicks said in a brief statement.

Dunford and Gerazimov also discussed the new ceasefire plan and “both also agreed to maintain regular contact,” Hicks said.
