Soon-To-Be Catholic Saint Advocated Ditching Child Labor Laws

In his classic sermon on 'False Compassion,' Venerable Archbishop Fulton Sheen targets child labor laws, and derides society's apparent obsession with getting a college education: "We ought to perhaps reform our child labor laws. Young people are not allowed to work on account of the law!? They're old enough to work, they're old enough to commit crimes! They do not want to go to school. We assume in the United States that everybody must go to school... So that college today, instead of being an intellectual privilege it's becoming a sort of social neccesity. 'You have to go.' Some of them are not made for books! Let them learn crafts..."

Priebus: Trump "Accepts" That Russia Played A Role In Election Hacking

In a surprising twist, incoming White House chief of staff Reince Priebus said Sunday on Fox News that President-elect Donald Trump accepts that Russia played a role in hacking the Democratic National Committee and Clinton campaign Chairman John Podesta.

Priebus, the former RNC chairman, said Trump understands that Moscow was behind the intrusions into the Democratic Party organizations. "He accepts the fact that this particular case was entities in Russia so that’s not the issue" and added that Trump "is not denying that entities in Russia were behind this particular hacking campaign."

The Don: "Hey Priebus, YOU'RE FIRED!!!"

US Embassy in Mexico Warns Americans Over Security Situation

The US embassy in Mexico called on US citizens in Guadalajara to avoid leaving their homes unless highly necessary following the recent attack on a consular official.

According to the video released by the US consulate, the perpetrator of the attack had been waiting for the consular official and started fire as the latter was driving out of a parking lot.

But it is not just Americans in Guadalajara who are at risk: as reported at zerohedge.com just yesterday:

A lawyer rewrote Instagram's terms of service for kids. Now you can understand all of the private data you and your teen are giving up to social media

In Britain, more than half of 12- to 15-year-olds are on Instagram, according to OfCom (pdf), the country’s communications regulator. So are 43% of 8- to 11-year-olds. But how many of them understand what they signed when they joined? Pretty much 0%, according to “Growing Up Digital”, a report released Jan. 5 (pdf) by the UK Children’s Commissioner.

THIS IS A COUP: THE HOMELAND SECURITY TAKEOVER OF US ELECTIONS

On Friday, the traditional day of the week for quietly releasing big news that will hopefully be ignored by the public—and also obscured by the Fort Lauderdale Airport shooting—the chief of Homeland Security announced that his office will be taking over US elections.

If you can’t see the coup in progress, you need to keep looking until the message comes through.

Read carefully—ABC News reports. My comments are in brackets:

“Citing increasingly sophisticated cyber bad actors and an election infrastructure that’s ‘vital to our national interests’, Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson announced Friday that he’s designating U.S. election systems critical infrastructure…”

[Also known as: “we’re taking over.”]

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The timing of this announcement by Mr. Johnson intrigues me; why would he make that announcement now, understanding full well that his agency will be headed by a Trump appointee, and many of the people he currently supervises will be gone right after the transition to a Trump presidency?

How he believes that elements of the DNC will still be in control of much of the agency's infrastructure, after Trump is inaugurated, is more than a little curious.

Is this a desperate, last-ditch effort to overturn the election results in the last two weeks of the Obama administration, before Trump's inauguration?

Israel apology after plot against UK politicians

The Israeli embassy has apologised to UK deputy foreign secretary Sir Alan Duncan for comments made by one of its staff members on plans "to take [him] down" due to his criticism of Israel's settlement activity in the occupied West Bank.

The comments, made by a senior political officer at the Israeli embassy Shai Masot, were secretly captured on film during a six-month undercover operation by Al Jazeera's Investigative Unit, which reveals plots by the Israeli diplomat and a British civil servant to destroy the careers of senior politicians.

In a conversation with Maria Strizzolo, who was then chief of staff to MP Robert Halfon, the deputy chairman of the ruling Conservative Party, Masot asked her if he could give her some names of MPs he would suggest she "take down".

Webmaster's Commentary: 

THIS is precisely how the Israeli Governmental Cartel thinks and operates.

And God bless Al Jazeera for having caught this conversation on film!

As a Christian Pacifist Activist, I would love to visit Jerusalem one day; unfortunately, however, because I have posted articles on this blog which have been more than a little critical of Israel's treatment of Palestinians, I would either be violently interrogated at Ben-Gurion airport, then refused entry, or assassinated outright if I got through airport security.

And to American Christian Zionists, who believe that they must blindly support everything Israel does (including serial genocide against the Palestinians), if you ever understood what most Israelis think of you, you would be wounded to the core of your being.

I don't know how "useful idiots" translates into Hebrew, but you catch my drift.

Revealed: FBI RETURNED Ft. Lauderdale shooter's gun a month before airport attack after he reported himself because he thought the CIA was making him fight for ISIS

It has also been revealed that FBI agents took Santiago's gun off him when he went into an Alaska field office in November to say the government was controlling his mind.

But it was returned to him just a month later, and law enforcement will not reveal why. Sources told CNN he used the same weapon in the airport attack.

The alleged shooter was also left off all the no-fly lists and was allowed to check in his gun before Friday's attack.

Measles making comeback as parents opt out of vaccines

A Texas medical researcher is raising concerns about a potential large-scale comeback of the measles.
Peter Hotez, Baylor College researcher, says Texas is just one of several states on the verge of a measles out-break. The main reason is because parents are choosing not to vaccinate their children.

Except that the measles and mumps outbreaks happen to children who HAVE been vaccinated, suggesting the vaccines are causing the illness rather than protecting from it!

Sure, you can do it, but do you really want to the that kind of a scumbag?

Clancy disputes Politico report of conflict-

WASHINGTON (CNN) - U.S. Secret Service Director Joseph Clancy wants to set the record straight about President-elect Donald Trump's private security team and whether it's causing conflict with his agents.

Most of all, however, he wanted to push back against suggestions that there were conflicts between the Secret Service and the private security team that's protected Trump for years.

"There is no friction at all" with Trump's private team, insisted Clancy, who said his agency has "sole responsibility" for protecting the president and the first family. He added that there is no overlap between the private team and his agency.

Further, we want to believe they take their responsibilities seriously and would never intentionally hurt this Country. However, sadly and shockingly, these things cannot be believed in nor trusted by We The People.

Tensions Rising Between Trump Team, Mattis Over Appointments

This guy needs to have his appointment pulled.While he is against torture,he covered up and minimized the Massacre at Haditha as well as the rapes committed during those murders of Iraqi civilians, including women and children. A man who covers for child rapists does not belong in the government!

While Trump’s incoming cabinet nominees seem mostly to be getting along with the transition team, there are reports of growing tension with nominated Defense Secretary Gen. James Mattis, who is said to be resisting a lot of proposed appointments of other Pentagon positions.

Early indications were that Mattis would be given a lot of input on who these appointees would be, but the announcement that billionaire Vincent Viola was to be Secretary of the Army apparently took him totally by surprise, and started a growing battle over other potential appointees.

Political Insanity: Outgoing President Obama’s “Operation Atlantic Resolve” against Russia: US Sends 3,600 Tanks Against Russia – Massive NATO Deployment Underway

Lead U.S. Intelligence Agency Admits Wikileaks’ Democratic Emails Are Authentic

The U.S. government’s Director of National Intelligence – which directs and oversees the American national intelligence program and all 16 U.S. intelligence agencies – released a report today stating:

We assess with high confidence that the GRU relayed material it acquired from the DNC and senior Democratic officials to WikiLeaks. Moscow most likely chose WikiLeaks because of its self-proclaimed reputation for authenticity. Disclosures through WikiLeaks did not contain any evident forgeries.

So – whatever you think about Wikileaks – anyone claiming that the Wikileaks documents are forged or altered is wrong.

Back Again: US Marines May Return to Afghanistan to Advise Ground Forces

The US Marine Corps may send troops back to Afghanistan as advisers, two years after leaving the country as combatants. 2nd Marine Division Commander Maj. Gen. John Love said recently that a group from his unit would deploy to Afghanistan in the spring.

During a Marine Corps Association and Foundation awards event in November 2016, Love remarked, "There is change in the air…There is a new mission we've picked up in the Marine Corps. We are going to repurpose the infantry regiments against a new mission back in some familiar territory in Afghanistan, a province we've been to before and a location we've been to before." © AFP 2016/ NASIR WAQIF US Ignores Afghanistan Sending Foreign Donors' Money to Abusive Militia Leaders The new mission he’s referring to entails Marines advising police forces and the Afghan National Security Forces. Previously Marines had served in the southwest Taliban stronghold of Helmand, while a team of advisers also worked in Lashkar Gah, Helmand’s capital.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US government and NATO have been occupying Afghanistan for over 15 years.

There is still no military metric by which the US, or NATO military can call that occupation "successful",in light of the fact that the Taliban and ISIS are having some great successes in various areas of the country.

In June 2016, the Taliban held more territory in Afghanistan than any other time after 2001

Despite Afghan Claims Of Victory, ISIS Surging

But here is the real reason why the Marines are coming back to Afghanistan as "advisors":

American troops guarding opium poppy fields in Afghanistan

No, these images are not photoshopped; they are real.

And that opium poppy trade, from which cheap, very pure heroin is fabricated, has soared, during the US and NATO occupation of Afghanistan.

4 KILLED, 700 ARRESTED IN MEXICO PROTESTS FOLLOWING NEOLIBERAL REFORMS

Protests over a double-digit hike in gasoline prices in Mexico continue in at least 22 states of the country, officials said on Friday, as they confirmed that the wave of violent lootings and blockades has left three people dead and at least 700 arrested.

Business leaders estimate that some 1,000 shops and companies have been looted or vandalized this week as others closed over fears of being robbed.

Protesters argue that the government’s decision to raise fuel prices by up to 20 percent has no justification in an oil-rich country, but the government insists that the move responds to international prices and not a result of the government’s neoliberal reforms.

On Thursday night President Enrique Peña Nieto used a nationally televised New Year’s address to defend the increase, again.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF, in fact, Nieto calls in the Mexican military, the only question left will be, will the military side with the Federal Government, or with those protesting?!?

That absolutely remains to be seen.

And have we heard a word from the corporate presstitutes or Whorespondents on these protests?!?

Nothing but Russia bashing from all of the "usual suspects" this morning.

LEAD U.S. INTELLIGENCE AGENCY ADMITS WIKILEAKS’ DEMOCRATIC EMAILS ARE AUTHENTIC

The U.S. government’s Director of National Intelligence – which directs and oversees the American national intelligence program and all 16 U.S. intelligence agencies – released a report today stating:

We assess with high confidence that the GRU relayed material it acquired from the DNC and senior Democratic officials to WikiLeaks. Moscow most likely chose WikiLeaks because of its self-proclaimed reputation for authenticity. Disclosures through WikiLeaks did not contain any evident forgeries.

So – whatever you think about Wikileaks – anyone claiming that the Wikileaks documents are forged or altered is wrong.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

By saying "We assess with high confidence that the GRU relayed material it acquired from the DNC and senior Democratic officials to WikiLeaks." provides absolutely zero evidence that this happened. We are still in the "fact free zone" here.

And there is no way to know what happened, because the FBI wasn't allowed access to the DNC's computers or servers.

FBI: DNC rebuffed request to examine computer servers

IF Clapper's group did not do a correct and proper forensic analysis of what was on the DNC's computers, and how they were hacked, they have no way of stating factually, that "The Russians did it."

By way of explanation, the GRU is Russia's largest intelligence agency.

However, again, there us utterly zero proof that the GRU hacked the DNC's server, and Julian Assange has repeatedly denied getting any information from any element of the Russian government or security organizations.

Right now, I would trust Julian Assange's credibility over that of James Clapper any day.

"Russia hacked the election" is the 2017 version of "Saddam has weapons of mass destruction."

‘Fake news’? Time to choose: Corporate media fakes us by ignoring King Family civil trial verdict that US government assassinated Martin with OVERWHELMING evidence, pretends to ‘honor’ Martin every January (7 of 15)

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

Coretta Scott King: “We have done what we can to reveal the truth, and we now urge you as members of the media, and we call upon elected officials, and other persons of influence to do what they can to share the revelation of this case to the widest possible audience.” – King Family Press Conference, Dec. 9, 1999.

Dr. King’s 2-minute message to you (full 1967 speech to end the Vietnam War):

Dr. Martin Luther King’s family and personal friend/attorney, William F. Pepper, won a civil trial that found US government agencies guilty of Martin's assassination/wrongful death. The 1999 trial, King Family versus Jowers and Other Unknown Co-Conspirators, is the only trial ever conducted on the assassination of Dr. King.

DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson Writes Deluded 'Exit Memo' To Obama, Praises 'Law-Abiding And Productive' Illegal Aliens

"Today, the national security apparatus of the federal government, of which DHS is a part, must continue to guard against large and small scale "terrorist-directed" attacks originating from overseas, but now must also detect and prevent "terrorist-inspired" attacks from homegrown violent extremists. These actors are inspired by effective terrorist use of the Internet, live among us in the homeland, and most often plan and attack alone and in secret, with little or no notice to law enforcement. ISIL has, in effect, outsourced terrorism when it comes to the U.S. homeland. The Obama Administration has been very successful in degrading al Qaeda and its affiliates.

The suit is over blog posts that labeled Ayyadurai a "fraud" and a "liar" because he claims to have invented e-mail in 1978 as a teenager in New Jersey.

According to the Internet Hall of Fame, in 1971, Ray Tomlinson, who died last year at 74, wrote the first ARPANET mail client, combining the existing SNDMSG and CPYNET programs. Tomlinson himself came up with the idea of using the @ symbol as a way to separate local e-mails from those that could be sent to external networks through the user@host syntax.

The Real Racists: Examining The Outrage Over The Chicago Kidnapping

The recent kidnapping and torture of a special needs teen has inspired a massive amount of outrage on social media.

Many people, including a considerable amount of non-Whites, have been quick to assert that this barbaric act was indeed an instance of anti-White racism. This is significant, for the very term “racism” has been hijacked and redefined so that it cannot apply to White victims. As such, pointing out anti-White racism is a legitimate, albeit tame, act of rebellion against Cultural Marxism.

Hundreds Of US Tanks Arrive In Europe To Support NATO Anti-Russian Buildup

As we reported yesterday, Lithuania confirmed the presence of U.S. special forces inside its territory, stating the deployment’s purpose is to train local forces and act as a deterrent against Russian aggression. Supposedly, the move is in response to a "escalation" by Vladimir Putin, who has been deploying nuke-ready missiles in the Russian province of Kaliningrad located in the heart of central Europe. This move has prompted the neighboring Baltic states to become “highly concerned” about Russian military activity.

Furthermore, sometime during the spring of 2017, NATO is expected to send battalions of 800 to 1,200 troops to each of the Baltic States and Poland. The mainstream media has even dubbed NATO’s recent buildup the alliance’s “biggest military buildup on Russia’s borders since the Cold War.” Even Great Britain will be sending fighter jets, as well as troops to Romania in order to counter Russia in the region.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This buildup is insane, and doesn't augur well for peace in the region, or the for the world.

Cal State professor calls for barring Trump’s use of sciences, other technologies, asserts global warming fallacies

Professor of History at California State University Sacramento and Huff Post contributor Joseph A. Palermo came forth last week with a climate change piece in which he managed to bash President-elect Donald Trump and the Republican leadership before managing to defame himself.

In his post titled “Republicans, Climate Change and the New Reality” the liberal professor made it “clear” that the election of Donald Trump as the “45th President of the United States” is a “catastrophe” in which “the country (and the world) seem to be awaiting the consequences” of.

Record 95,102,000 Americans Not in Labor Force; Number Grew 18% Since Obama Took Office in 2009

Barack Obama's presidency began with a record number of Americans not in the labor force, and it's ending the same way.

The final jobs report of the Obama presidency, released Friday, shows that the number of Americans not in the labor force has increased by 14,573,000 (18.09 percent) since January 2009, when Obama took office, continuing a long-term trend that began well before Obama was sworn in.

In December, according to the Labor Department’s Bureau of Labor Statistics, a record 95,102,000 Americans were not in the labor force, 47,000 more than in November; and the labor force participation rate was 62.7 percent, a tenth of a point higher than in November.

The participation rate dropped to a 38-year low of 62.4 percent on Obama's watch, in September 2015. It was only 3-tenths of a point higher than that last month.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

More of Obama's precious "legacy", I see.

Anti-Russia “Fake News” Campaign Rolled out Across Europe. Moscow Tagged as a Sponsor of ISIS-Daesh

This is the content of the resolution passed by the European Parliament on November 23, on “EU strategic communication to counteract propaganda against it by third parties.” The declared aim of the extensive resolution is to combat “third-party actors aiming to discredit” the European Union (EU) that “do not share the same [European] values.”

The resolution then defines as the main “actors” Russia and Daesh (or ISIL) and it is Russia that occupies most of the resolution.

It equates Russia with “transnational terrorist and criminal organisations…” that have “repeatedly engaged in a strategy of deliberate deception and disinformation, especially in the ‘new media’, social networks and the digital sphere…”

Accusing Russia of “information warfare”, the resolution asserts that it “is employing a wide range of tools and instruments” to “challenge democratic values, divide Europe, gather domestic support and create the perception of failed states in the EU’s eastern neighbourhood…”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A memo to the EU: with these accusations regarding Russia, you have REALLY "jumped the shark", and have become totally irrelevant and useless to the futures of the countries you allegedly represent.

And to conflate Russia with ISIS?!?

Please, have you all gone absolutely barking mad, to use this analogy?!?

Kindly get your collective heads out of a very dark, unpleasant place, and sniff some sunshine, for heaven's sake!!

Russia is not the problem here; it is the dissatisfaction of Europeans having to live with the regulations of the out-of-touch, tone-deaf and blind EU Eurocrats in Brussels which has caused a populist uprising, and a very strong desire to break free of an economic and financial system which is great for large corporate banking and taxing entities, but lousy for the people living in the countries which comprise the EU.

I do not know how much longer the EU, or the Euro, will actually survive; but my sense is, without a major war, fronted by NATO and the US against Russia, it will ultimately have to collapse of its own weight, as the basic international understandings which created it were based on false assumptions.

It is the "fake news", regurgitated by corporate presstitutes to further government agendas, worldwide, which get people killed.

Do any of you Eurocrats remember what happened after the US government accused Saddam Hussein of "having weapons of mass destruction"?!?

I rest my case.

Strikes Spread in Mexico, Thousands of Police Deployed to Capital

Police made up to 600 arrests throughout Mexico yesterday as protests continued against President Enrique Pena Nieto’s cut to gas subsidies, known colloquially as the gasolinazo. One police officer was killed during confrontations in an impoverished neighborhood of Mexico City, and the mayor deployed 9,000 police to guard commercial centers throughout the city.

Yesterday also saw indications that localized protests by workers may be developing into a broader strike movement. Fourteen thousand bus, truck and taxi drivers in the oil-producing state of Veracruz announced a statewide strike of indefinite length, with many leaving their trucks, cabs, and buses parked on the street.

The trade unions are stepping in to prevent the demonstrations from coalescing into a nationwide strike. Trade union bureaucrats who announced the recent strikes stated explicitly that they were forced to do so by workers, who in the words of one trade union official, are becoming “violent.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If, in fact, the Mexican military is called in to put down these riots, the only real question will be: to whom will they owe their allegiance?!?

To the protestors, or to the government?!?

Yemen's Children Starve as War Drags On

As the first light of dawn trickles in through the hospital window, 19-year-old Mohammed Ali learns that his two-year-old cousin has died of hunger. But he has to remain strong for his little brother Mohannad, who could be next.

He holds his brother's hand as the five-year-old struggles to breathe, his skin stretched tight over tiny ribs. "I have already lost a cousin to malnutrition today, I can't lose my little brother," he says.

They are among countless Yemenis who are struggling to feed themselves amid a grinding civil war that has pushed the Arab world's poorest nation to the brink of famine. The family lives in a mud hut in northern Yemen, territory controlled by Shiite Houthi rebels, who are at war with government forces and a Saudi-led and U.S.-backed coalition.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When I was a kid, growing up, I never, in my wildest imagination, could imagine my country, the United States of America, as ever being complicit in war crimes; fast forward to 2015, and the US government sure as hell is.

Collective punishment of a population is a war crime; the Saudi blockade of Yemeni ports is making this happen, and the US government is enabling Saudi war crimes in Yemen.

The killing and wounding of innocent non-combatants, particularly when they are children, is a war crime: the US government is enabling Saudi war crimes in Yemen.

And if you want to know what daily life is looking like, particularly for Yemenite children, take a good, hard look at these images:

Images: children starving due to Saudi Naval blockade of Yemen

Images: Yemeni children wounded or killed from Saudi bombings

After President Trump is inaugurated, We the People need to have a very sober conversation with his administration, to see where the US government is with continuing to enable Saudi war crimes in Yemen; and I say this because at the end of the day, the only real solution to the conflict will have to be a political one.

The killing of non-combatants is a war crime.

US Spy Chief Claims ‘Unprecedented’ Russian Involvement in US Vote

Speaking to the Senate today, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper openly disagreed with President-elect Donald Trump on the narrative of the 2016 presidential election, insisting he was “even more resolute” that the Russians had hacked the election, and promising some evidence would be made public next week.

Clapper claimed Russia had meddled in the US election not just through alleged hacking of the Clinton campaign, but by “spreading of propaganda,” saying that the existence of state-run television station RT played a role in the election by “disparaging our system.”

Clapper then went on to lash Trump for being so vocal in questioning the allegations, saying that there was a difference between “healthy skepticism” by lawmakers and open disparagement of the intelligence community by not accepting their findings.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A memo to soon-to-be-retired Director of National Intelligence James Clapper:

About your complaint that RT.com "disparages our system"; what I find, when I go there to read their Enlish language version, are articles which the US Presstitutes won't touch, because they are "geopolitical kryptonite" in this country. For example:

Radioactive contamination spreading in shuttered Hanford Site nuclear plant

Do Americans, particularly those in proximity to this closed plant, not have the right to be informed as to what is going on here, and that it might well be a threat to the water and soil in adjacent areas?!?

Now, I have checked cnn.com; foxnews.com; msnbc.com; and nbc.com: I have found not one word on this unfolding catastrophe.

And DNI Clapper, the reality is, if you, in fact, had hard evidence about Russian hacking, you would have been shouting it, from the rooftops, months ago.But you don't really have compelling, incontrovertible evidence; just assertions which, to date, have been, embarrassingly, and noticeably, "fact-free".

I am experiencing more than a little concern about the timing of the release of this alleged "evidence" to the US public "next week".

Is the "deep state" in this country planning a false flag action, at home or abroad, that will be so shocking, (and of course, be blamed on Russia) that this "alleged evidence" will become a moot point, because the American people have had their attention misdirected by the alleged "crimes" of Russia to the point where logic becomes lost in their collective "flight or fight" response to this incident?!?

For Russia (and Putin) to do something that bone-headedly stupid as some kind of attack against the US, or US assets abroad, on the eve of the presidential transition in this country, just boggles the mind.

Cui bono?!?

Who benefits?!?

Certainly not Russia, or Putin.

But the ever war-centric US "deep state" would love to see nothing more than a hot war against Russia, just a week before Trump has taken his Oath of Office, as their "revenge" against a Trump Presidency.

But a caveat here to those who may be planning such an outrage against this country; this is not 2001 America, where the corporate presstitutes could regurgitate anything the Administration said to forward its agenda, and expect that to be believed, such as "Saddam Hussein has weapons of mass destruction."

The independent media has caused a war-sceptical and war-weary population to seek its information from other sources than those who consistently carry the government's water, because the American people understand that the corporate presstitutes lied us into wars of aggression against Iraq and Afghanistan.

The real fake news, spewed out by the corporate presstitutes on the justifications for those wars, got people killed, in wars ultimately for private profit.

The American people will not be fooled again.

Chicago Torture Video Suspects Charged With Hate Crimes After Police Say Beating Not About Race

Four black suspects are being charged with kidnapping, assault and hate crimes for holding a white man with special needs hostage and torturing him for hours, police in Illinois said. It is unclear if he was targeted for being white or for his disability.

The four suspects were taken into custody on Wednesday after the 28-minute video was livestreamed on Tuesday. Jordan Hill, 18; Tesfaye Cooper, 18; Brittany Covington, 18; and Tanishia Covington, 24, face charges of aggravated kidnapping, hate crime, aggravated unlawful restraint and aggravated battery with a deadly weapon. Hill has also been charged with robbery, residential burglary and possession of a stolen motor vehicle, while Cooper and Brittany Covington face charges of residential burglary.

US Officials Say Russia Approval of Trump Win Is ‘Evidence’ of Hacking

The “evidence” that Russia was behind the hacking of Democratic Party targets ahead of the 2016 US election appears as flimsy as ever, as officials start to let out what appears to have been the cornerstone of their entire narrative, that Russia was happy Trump won the election.

Officials conceded today that the important evidence that let to their “conclusion” only came after the election was already finished, by way of explaining why they didn’t make such accusations before the vote, and the Washington Post report quotes senior officials as saying a major part of that conclusion was intercepted communications showing Russia was happy with the outcome.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A short memo to the editorial board of the Washington Compost: you cannot "double down" on nothing, and pretend that you actually have something, which is just what you have done with this faux "justification" of blaming Russian hackers for breaches of the DNC computers, when the FBI was refused access to the DNC's computers in the first place, after the claim of hacking went public.

FBI refused access to DNC computers "allegedly" hacked by the Russians

I think, rather than "happy" at the outcome from the Russia side, the more correct word would be "relief". They knew what was in store, should Clinton have gotten elected, and that is a three letter word, called "war".

Clinton is a card-carrying warmonger, and darling of the military industrial complex. During her campaign, look at the CVs of her advisors, and will someone tell me that ANY of them were willing to "give peace a chance"?!?

Not until pigs fly, most probably.

Hillary Clinton’s National Security Advisers Are a “Who’s Who” of the Warfare State

Clinton's Syria policy would require war with Russia

How Hillary Clinton Became a War Hawk

The warhawks and warmongers wanted her as their president, big-time, because she was in lock-step with their agenda; We the People were not.

And as a peace activist myself, I was relieved when Trump won the election; because although I don't believe he will be averse to using military action where there is no other way to get something done, I sincerely believe that he will explore all possible peaceful options before his military are directed to put our young men and women who serve in harm's way.

Clinton, on the other hand, wouldn't have given a rat's anus about those Americans killed and maimed for life, because for her, and her inner circle, it's all about the money, and wars of conquest becoming wars of personal enrichment.

I have to admit to you guys, I am in the dark groping around trying to see my way to begin this report. It is as if the Intelligence Community is very educated in creative writing. They know how to blah, blah, and blah, but they don't know how to be straight shooters with the truth. So, sometimes one can have an education, but not know how to put it to good use.

Jordan warns of 'catastrophic' repercussions to Trump plan to move US embassy to Jerusalem

Jordan's Government spokesman has warned of "catastrophic" repercussions if US President-elect Donald Trump makes good on a campaign promise to move the American Embassy in Israel to contested Jerusalem.

Last month, Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway said moving the embassy to Jerusalem was a "very big priority" for the President-elect.

Such a move could affect relations between the US and regional allies, including Jordan, Information Minister Mohammed Momani said, addressing the issue publicly for the first time.

An embassy move would be a "red line" for Jordan, would "inflame the Islamic and Arab streets" and serve as a "gift to extremists", he said

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Momani is utterly correct about the impact such a move would have on the Middle East, and the cold, hard reality that it would almost surely attract more violence in Israel.

but unfortunately, the world is forced to deal with one of the most churlishly hubristic, and genocidal Israeli heads of state the world has witnessed to date, and that would be one Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu.

He welcomes violence as a pretext for war against his neighbors (and that 38 billion dollar "blank check" for military and financial Obama just wrote him, over the next 10 years, I am sure, figures prominently in his plans).

Most probably, he won't attack Iran or Syria, because of Russian support of those countries, and he knows that any radical assault will be met with an intense Russian military response.

But Lebanon?

It is known that the Israeli government would like to expropriate the Litani river in Lebanon, which, at some points in its path, is only 5 kilometers from the Israeli border.

If I were a military and/or political leader in Lebanon, I think I would have great cause for concern, as the military capabilities of Hezbollah, while formidable, are no match for those of the Israeli military.

VERY POWERFUL PEOPLE IN THE U.S. GOVERNMENT WANT WAR – THIS IS THEIR SALES PITCH

The rising hysteria about Russia is best understood as fulfilling two needs for Official Washington: the Military Industrial Complex’s transitioning from the “war on terror” to a more lucrative “new cold war” – and blunting the threat that a President Trump poses to the neoconservative/liberal-interventionist foreign-policy establishment.

By hyping the Russian “threat,” the neocons and their liberal-hawk sidekicks, who include much of the mainstream U.S. news media, can guarantee bigger military budgets from Congress. The hype also sets in motion a blocking maneuver to impinge on any significant change in direction for U.S. foreign policy under Trump.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A memo to both the American and Russian governments: the American people, adamantly, do not want a war with Russia.

And to the American government; I have been unable to believe a single thing you have said to the American people since 9/11, which was a notorious pack of lies you used to sell the American people on the other lies upon which you predicated the invasion - and occupation - of both Afghanistan, and Iraq.

As a Christian pacifist activist with a voice on this blog, who constantly entreats her government to resolve its geopolitical issues through patient, moral, and hard-won negotiations, rather than through war, I must warn our readers the US government is making an horrific mistake by pushing a war against Russia (and/or China) right now.

Because pulling back, and looking at the "big picture", I understand, without question, that we do not have the weaponry, the money, the troop strength, or the manufacturing to insure a positive result from a conventional war against Russia.

Right now, when US weapons are field deployed, they are, many times, so late as to be obsolete relative to their original mission; absolutely do not work as advertised (need I remind you of the continuous fluster-cluck which has been the saga of the F-35?!?); and are hideously over-budget.

Russia and China are getting a lot more bang for their weaponry buck right now, without paying anywhere near what the US government is paying for substandard, and failing, equipment: here are some examples, from readily accessible web sources:

Army 2016 forum: Top 8 newest Russian weapons

Russia successfully tests its first-ever hypersonic weapon

Top 10 Most Powerful Weapons of The Russian Military 2016 -2020

Russia's Hybrid Atomic Weapons

To put the US military, and its people, into a war the US military most probably cannot win, for the reasons I have enumerated above, is the ultimate betrayal of the American people by elements of the "deep state" in this country, and it must - peacefully and logically - be stopped in its tracks, and now.

Treasury Nominee Steve Mnuchin’s Bank Accused of “Widespread Misconduct” in Leaked Memo

ONEWEST BANK, WHICH Donald Trump’s nominee for treasury secretary, Steven Mnuchin, ran from 2009 to 2015, repeatedly broke California’s foreclosure laws during that period, according to a previously undisclosed 2013 memo from top prosecutors in the state attorney general’s office.

The memo obtained by The Intercept alleges that OneWest rushed delinquent homeowners out of their homes by violating notice and waiting period statutes, illegally backdated key documents, and effectively gamed foreclosure auctions.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF, in fact, these allegations prove true, and Steven Mnuchin actually signed off on these practices, they are very troubling, indeed.

"Current Arizona driver licenses, IDs are valid for air travel until Oct. 1, 2020. New TSA notices at airports don't affect Arizonans.

Trump Orders Ambassadors Out by Inauguration Day

President-elect Donald Trump’s team has ordered all politically appointed ambassadors in overseas posts to get out by Inauguration Day, several diplomats were cited saying in a new report published Thursday. Most diplomats interviewed in the New York Times report said it made perfect sense for Obama-appointed diplomats to leave their posts as the president they represent leaves his, but no one could recall an instance when such a strict timeline was used.

The State Department previously told all politically appointed ambassadors to submit their resignations by Jan. 20, though they had the option of seeking to extend their term.
