It has taken many years to bring this case against Rothschild and his company the Rothschild Financial Services Group, which trapped hundreds of pensioners in a bogus loan scheme between the years of 2005 and 2008.

Susan Rice: Unmasked Warmonger (Video)

One of the foremost agents of the Deep State that operated in the White House during the Obama years was his former national security advisor, Susan Rice. While the latest news cycle about Rice was in relation to the wiretapping of Trump and his team, that is the least of her crimes. Her warmongering influence extends from our intervention in Libya all the way to African genocide in the 90s.

In the following video, Right Wing News takes an in-depth look at the warmongering antics of Susan Rice. From lying to cover for Obama and Hillary in the Benghazi incident to setting in motion events that led to the invasion of the Congo which left millions of Africans dead, her list of crimes is long indeed. And throughout her storied career, she has also acquired a net worth of almost 40 million dollars. Clearly in her case, crime does pay. But will she ever answer for them?

Tesla and Space X are already redefining humanity’s future, but Neuralink, a platform that would use futurist technology to augment our brains could alter our world even more.

In 100 Days, A New Jewish Elite Rises Under Trump

Liberal-leaning Jewish activists, once the backbone of communal advocacy, had been pushed aside in favor of a new elite made up of activists who are more conservative in their politics and more Orthodox in their religious practice. The new leaders representing American Jewish interests in the White House are keen to shape policy on education and religious expression and to ensure a pro-Israel stance more in line with the Netanyahu government.

Agudah may speak for a relatively small portion of the Jewish community, but it succeeded in landing the first White House meeting among all Jewish groups.

America’s War against the People of Korea: The Historical Record of US War Crimes

An armistice is an agreement by the warring parties to stop fighting. It does signify the end of war.

What underlies the 1953 Armistice Agreement is that one of the warring parties, namely the US has consistently threatened to wage war on the DPRK for the last 60 years.

The US has on countless occasions violated the Armistice Agreement. It has remained on a war footing. Casually ignored by the Western media and the international community, the US has actively deployed nuclear weapons targeted at North Korea for more than half a century in violation of article 13b) of the Armistice agreement.

The armistice remains in force. The US is still at war with Korea. It is not a peace treaty, a peace agreement was never signed.

US approves another hundreds-million-dollar arms sale to Israel

The United States has approved a proposal to sell Israel more weapons, including naval guns and technical support worth an estimated $440 million.

The Defense Security Cooperation Agency said in a statement on Friday that the State Department agreed to allow the possible sale of 13 76mm naval guns to Tel Aviv.

The Pentagon agency said it had notified the Congress about the State Department’s decision

“The United States is committed to the security of Israel, and it is vital to US national interests to assist Israel to develop and maintain a strong and ready self-defense capability," said the agency.

It also said that the equipment "will improve Israel’s capability to meet current and future threats in the defense of its borders and territorial waters.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

WHAT borders?!? Israel refuses to declare where, precisely, its borders are, in order for the Zionists to fulfill their dream of "Eretz Israel", which will need to "munch" territory from neighboring territories to achieve their goals of enlarging the country so that it runs from the Nile to the Euphrates.

YouTube Creators: YouTube is a Monopsony; Time to Reclaim What's Ours (Video)

By now, if you or anyone you know has been in the regular habit of making their own videos, and then uploading them YouTube, then by now you’re all too aware of the advertising boycott taking place that has decreased the income streams of those content creators by up to 95% in many instances.

If you expect to fully understand how something like this happened in the first place, or if income streams will ever recover, or if something like this can and will happen again, the first you must understand the difference between a monopoly and a monopsony. Then you must convince your legislators to pass new or additional anti-trust legislation to prevent this problem from growing even larger, and eventually crossing over into all markets, not just YouTube videos.

-- A monopoly is defined as: A situation where a single company or group owns all or nearly all of the market for a given type of product or service, stifling competition.

Will Trump Release The Missing JFK Files? (Video)

In October this year, President Trump will have to make a decision. Not a particularly important decision in the eyes of many, but one that many historians and skeptics are salivating over. Unless President Trump blocks it, the National Archives will release 3,600 never-before-seen files relating to the JFK assassination and possibly the full unsealing of another 35,000 assassination related documents.

In the following video, Right Wing News looks at what information does files could potentially reveal. Speculation is that the documents will show exactly how much the intelligence agencies knew about Oswald prior to the assassination, as well as his mysterious trip to Mexico City. As of now, the intelligence agencies have given no indication that they plan to petition to block the release of the documents. But hey, it’s still early

The economy is barely growing. These are 3 theories why.

The Commerce Department released estimates Friday showing that the economy is growing more slowly than it has in years.
For the first quarter of 2017, it grew a measly 0.7 percent, the worst growth since mid-2014. Economists had been hoping that sluggish economic growth would start to pick up by now as more people find work and wages increase, plus optimism gets a boost from the Trump administration’s promise to cut taxes. Two months ago, they’d predicted a slight uptick to 2 percent growth.

Update From the East Village Battlefront

Things are warming up in Manhattan East Village ahead of our 30 April Conference at Theatre 80. Theatre owner Lorcan Otway, keeps holding a firm position: he announced again and again that he won’t surrender to calls for censorship. I spent some time with this heroic, scholarly oriented human being. He deserves every possible support. If it isn’t for me, be there on Sunday at 5PM to support Lorcan and his staunch position on freedom and the 1st Amendment.

Meanwhile The Villager confirms that some Antifas may appear in the scene. Considering the reputation the Antifa bought itself in recent years, this news should be probably interpreted as a form of intimidation.

However, The Villager also published yesterday a beautiful interview with human rights Lawyer Stanley Cohen who participates in the event. I repost this interview in full. Please share it widely.

Israel Announces Plan for 15,000 More Settlement Homes in East Jerusalem

The Israeli Housing Ministry today announced plans to build 25,000 homes across metro Jerusalem, and within this announcement were 15,000 new settlement homes within occupied East Jerusalem areas, a massive expansion of settlement in the area.

Israeli officials don’t present expansions in the East Jerusalem settlements as “settlement” expansion, however, as they insist the area, occupied since 1967, is part of the “eternal” capital of Israel, and will never be given back to the Palestinians at any rate.

The latest move sparked a lot of international criticism, with Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat declaring the move an attempt at “deliberate sabotage” of the peace process, and noting that all settlement construction in the occupied territories is illegal under international law.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I mentioned on this blog, years ago, that if the Palestinian leadership didn't get its act together, and present themselves as the unified voice of the Palestinian people, the land they would get for an independent Palestine wouldn't even be the size of Lichtenstein.

I hate having been right on this, but it is apparently the case.

And please remember; Zionist Israelis see their country as the original "Eretz Israel", stretching from the Nile to the Euphrates, which means a number of neighboring countries will have to give up some of their territory, to make that happen.

Babies starve as war grinds on in Mosul

This is on the heads of the American people who pay for the fighters and weapons on both sides with their taxes!

By Isabel Coles | QAYYARA, Iraq

The babies cry with hunger but are so severely malnourished that doctors treating them at a hospital in Iraq would make their condition worse if they fed them enough to stop the pangs.

Many of the starving infants are from Mosul, where war between Islamic State militants and Iraqi forces is taking a heavy toll on several hundred thousand civilians trapped inside the city.

A new, specialist ward was opened recently to deal with the growing number of children from Mosul showing signs of malnutrition as the conflict grinds on -– most of them less than six-months-old.

US Deploys Troops in NE Syria as ‘Buffer’ Between Kurds, Turkey

The US has deployed a number of special forces troops and armored vehicles along the border between Kurdish-held northeast Syria and Turkey, with most of the troops sent to the area around Darbasiya, which was the site of heavy Turkish attacks earlier this week.

Officially, US commanders say the troops are there “monitoring the situation,” though Syrian Kurds say that in practice the US deployment is an attempt to establish a “buffer” to try to limit fighting between the two sides,, which has been raging since Turkey’s airstrikes were carried out.

From Turkey’s perspective, there are two trains of thought on their recent push to attack the Kurdish YPG, who they consider “terrorists.” On the one hand, there seems to be some hope that if they can displace the Kurds enough during the buildup to the invasion of the ISIS capital of Raqqa, the US might agree to change it to a joint US-Turkey operation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I think we will continue to see more US troops in Syria, as regime change is definitely back on the table here, in the thinking of the American deep state.

But what happens when US troops run into direct confrontation with the Russian ground troops, which are being deployed there very soon?!?

Ongoing .01% ‘Crime du jour’ analyses + Big Picture context of US rogue state empire requiring arrests: BOTH REQUIRED or ‘We the People’ will have ‘leadership’ under Prescott Bush’s motto, Karl Rove’s promise, and Ben Franklin’s prediction

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

“Claim everything. Explain nothing. Deny everything.” ~ Prescott Bush, 1966 (oligarch, father and grandfather of US Presidents)

“We’re an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you’re studying that reality—judiciously, as you will—we’ll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that’s how things will sort out. We’re history’s actors…and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do.” ~ Three weeks before W.

Can Cannabis Prevent and Treat Traumatic Brain Injury?

Traumatic Brain Injury, or TBI, is a serious condition usually caused by an external blow to the head that can cause severe and often chronic symptoms. These symptoms can be cognitive, behavioral, movement related, speech and visual impairing, mood altering, involve painful headaches, and even cause gastrointestinal issues.

In a three-year retrospective review of 446 separate cases of similarly injured patients, researchers found traumatic brain injury (TBI) patients who had a history of cannabis consumption possessed increased survival rates compared to non-consumers (97.6 percent survived surgery, versus 88.5% of those who didn’t consume cannabis).

"Our data suggest an important link between the presence of a positive THC screen and improved survival after TBI," the researchers concluded. "With continued research, more information will be uncovered regarding the therapeutic potential of THC, and further therapeutic interventions may be established."

Trump tough on South Korea: Threatens to terminate free trade deal, wants payment for THAAD missile defense system

President Donald Trump said that he will either renegotiate or terminate a "horrible" trade deal with South Korea, Reuters reported late Thursday.

The president also said he wants South Korea to pay for the $1 billion THAAD missile defense system, Reuters said.

Responses to Trump's comments soon arose, with an official from South Korea's automakers association telling Reuters that the group is now concerned about "the uncertainty" of the free trade agreement.

Shares in Hyundai Motor fell as much as 2.4 percent following Trump's comments. South Korea's won turned weaker on the comments.

Another scientist, David Wright, co-director of the Union of Concerned Scientists' Global Security Program, said that a salvo of North Korean short-range missiles could overwhelm THAAD.

Before South Korea’s conservative presidents severed ties with North Korea from 2008, their liberal predecessors Kim Dae-jung and Roh Moo-hyun promoted peaceful engagement and rapprochement, an approach called the “sunshine policy.”

The name stemmed from an ancient Greek fable where the wind and the sun competed to remove a man’s cloak. No matter how strongly the wind blew, the man only wrapped his cloak more tightly to keep warm. But when the sun shone, the warmth made him take his cloak off. The wind symbolized unsuccessful coercive policies toward North Korea and the sun stood for an approach able to persuade North Korea to take off its anachronistic and uncomfortable cloak, changing at last.

Are We (Collectively) Depressed?

We need to encourage honesty above optimism. Once we can speak honestly, there is a foundation for optimism.

Psychoanalysis teaches that one cause of depression is repressed anger.

The rising tide of collective anger is visible in many places: road rage, violent street clashes between groups seething for a fight, the destruction of friendships for holding the "incorrect" ideological views, and so on. I Think We Can Safely Say The American Culture War Has Been Taken As Far As It Can Go.

Russia says strike on North Korea ‘completely unacceptable’

Moscow tells UN Security Council meeting that any military action to address nuclear proliferation by Pyongyang could have catastrophic consequences.

Russia on Friday warned at the United Nations that military options to address the threat from North Korea’s nuclear and ballistic programs were “completely unacceptable” and would have “catastrophic consequences.”

Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Gennady Gatilov told the Security Council that China’s proposals to restart talks with North Korea should be seriously examined and that sanctions alone would not work.

North Korea “is conducting itself in an inappropriate way,” Gatilov told the council. “At the same time, options of using force are completely unacceptable and could lead to catastrophic consequences.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As reported by reuters this morning:

U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson warned on Friday that failure to curb North Korea's nuclear and missile abilities could lead to 'catastrophic consequences,' while China and Russia cautioned Washington against threatening military force to solve the problem. While Washington has pressed Beijing to rein in its ally Pyongyang, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi told the U.N. Security Council that "the key to solving the nuclear issue on the peninsula does not lie in the hands of the Chinese side." Tillerson urged the 15-member body to act before North Korea does and called on states to sever diplomatic and financial ties with Pyongyang. He said that because China accounted for 90 percent of North Korean trade, its role was particularly important. "Failing to act now on the most pressing security issue in the world may bring catastrophic consequences," Tillerson said in his first remarks to the council as secretary of state. The United States was not pushing for regime change and preferred a negotiated solution, but Pyongyang, for its own sake, should dismantle its nuclear and missile programs, he said. "The threat of a nuclear attack on Seoul, or Tokyo, is real, and it's only a matter of time before North Korea develops the capability to strike the U.S. mainland," Tillerson said. While Tillerson repeated the Trump administration's position that all options are on the table if Pyongyang persists with its nuclear and missile development, Yi said military threats would not help.

The question is, with the South Korean elections just a little over a week away, and one of the front-runners being an avowed advocate of the "Sunshine Policy", which promotes engagement with North Korea, just how long will the US give the UN Security Council to vote for these sanctions they are demanding, with a sure and certain knowledge that Russia and China will either abstain, or vote no?!?

The Security Council process can be glacial.

The Painted Turd

... But with Trump, who the hell knows what he believes anymore? Who the hell knows what he ever believed? During the election, hardcore Trumpers were willing to excuse the man for his lifetime of shape-shifting political allegiances and positions. Trump got a pass because throughout the primaries and the general, he came off as a guy with hardcore beliefs and a master plan to make them a reality. But now, with Trump having seemingly flip-flopped on Syria, NATO, China, Janet Yellen, interest rates, the Export-Import Bank, and Goldman Sachs, Trumpers don't know what to think anymore ... Trump is modern art. He's a blank canvas, or a canvas with random paint tossed onto it by a monkey. You see what you choose to see

Debunking Trump’s Casus Belli

... The insiders note that no evidence has been produced to demonstrate convincingly that Syrian forces dropped a chemical bomb on a civilian area ... They also note that Syria had absolutely no motive for staging a chemical attack. In fact, it was quite the contrary, as Washington had earlier that week backed off from the U.S. position that President Bashar al-Assad should be removed from office. The so-called rebels, however, had plenty of motive. Many intelligence officials have concluded that the White House is lying and concealing what it knows ... The uncompromising demand that al-Assad must go will lead, in their opinion, to a rapid escalation of military activity that inevitably will result in conflict with Russia.

Truth and Fiction in Elie Wiesel’s “Night”

Though Wiesel offers himself as a paragon of moral virtue, the truth is somewhat seamier. As detailed in this myth-shattering piece by Alexander Cockburn from the February 2006 print edition of CounterPunch, Wiesel assiduously campaigned for the Nobel Prize and has for decades tried to pass off his short book “Night” as a true account–a “testimony” in his words– of his experiences at Auschwitz, even though key scenes in the book have been exposed as fiction.

Fox News Poll: 53 percent favor military action to stop North Korea nukes program

It will take military force to stop North Korea’s nuclear weapons program, a majority of voters believe -- and they tend to favor the U.S. taking that action.

That’s according to the latest national Fox News Poll of registered voters.

Fifty-one percent say that U.S. military action will be required to keep the rogue nation from continuing its nuclear weapons program, while 36 percent think diplomacy alone can stop it.

By a 53-39 percent margin, voters favor the U.S. using military force to keep North Korea from making further advancements on nukes.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

ARE YOU FLIPPING KIDDING ME, understanding the horrific loss of life such an attack would create, on both sides?!?

Either FAUX news was "push-polling", i.e., working through zip codes where they knew what the general answer would be before they conducted the poll, or they were polling the criminally insane!!

No thinking person I know believes that a US military "solution" should be employed, not one!!

9/11 Destroyed America Conspiracy Buzz — Paul Craig Roberts

In America, telling the truth has become more dangerous than ever … even deadly to one’s career. “It comes at a high cost that hardly any can afford.” Why have we allowed a tiny handful of neoconservatives to destroy multiple Middle Eastern countries, along with whatever civil liberties we once had in America? Neoconservatives are a tiny number of people. No more than a dozen are of any consequence. Yet they have used America to murder millions. And now they are fomenting war with Russia, China, Iran, and North Korea. The world would never survive such a war. Are Americans so insouciant that they will stand aside while a dozen neoconservatives destroy the world?

Mounting Incitements to War With Russia

Nation contributing editor Stephen F. Cohen and John Batchelor continue their weekly discussions of the new US-Russian Cold War. (Previous installments, now in their fourth year, are at TheNation.com). This installment expands upon last week’s, which focused on several highly questionable Washington narratives that imply the necessity of war with Russia. When later asked which of these allegations was the most dangerous, Cohen responds, in this installment, that their number is increasing and with them the risk of war. He itemizes the Cold War narratives, or allegations, now propounded by the US political-media establishment:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The "blame Russia for everything not going right for American geopolitics" is both disingenuous in the extreme, and completely, utterly wrong.

But just because something is the most pig-headedly, ham-fistedly stupid thing the US government could possibly do, unfortunately, is utterly no guarantee that the US government won't do it.

And a war with Russia right now would be idiotically suicidal for the American government to do, and I say this as someone who cares very much about the future of her country.

The reasons are painfully obvious; right now, the US military doesn't have the troop strength; the weaponry; the money; or the manufacturing to insure a positive outcome to a conventional war against Russia.

And secondly, Americans have become very war-weary, and war-skeptical, in evaluating the horrific messes the US military has left in places like Afghanistan; Iraq; Somalia; and Libya.

And that fact that Americans understand, incontrovertibly, that they were lied to in order to start the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, means that they can never, ever trust anything agents of the US government say ever again.

So to all those who seem to have gone foaming-at-the-mouth, barking-dog mad, in terms of both government officials and their presstitutes, attempting to "sell" your Russophobia, a word, please; you have utterly flushed your credibility with your lies, and have therefore become completely irrelevant in terms of moving the American geopolitical process forward.

FORMERLY IMPRISONED JOURNALIST BARRETT BROWN TAKEN BACK INTO CUSTODY BEFORE PBS INTERVIEW

AWARD-WINNING JOURNALIST Barrett Brown was re-arrested and taken into custody Thursday, the day before he was scheduled to be interviewed for a PBS documentary.

Brown quickly became a symbol of the attack on press freedom after he was arrested in 2012 for reporting he did on the hacked emails of intelligence-contracting firms. Brown wrote about hacked emails that showed the firm Stratfor spying on activists on behalf of corporations. Brown also helped uncover a proposal by intelligence contractors to hack and smear WikiLeaks defenders and progressive activists.

Faced with the possibility of 100 years in prison, Brown pleaded guilty in 2014 to two charges related to obstruction of justice and threatening an FBI agent, and was sentenced to five years and 3 months. In 2016, Brown won a National Magazine Award for his scathing and often hilarious columns in The Intercept, which focused on his life in prison. He was released in November.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is an absolute moral outrage, and I hope that the intercept keeps the unblinking eye of the net on this case until Brown is released.

IF the Federal BOP actually HAS a policy on interviews, post-incarceration, I was certainly unable to find it on the web; and I am not precisely a slouch at research.

Home About Antiwar.com Donate Blog US Casualties Contact Latest NewsTillerson: US Won’t Attack North Korea So Long as Threat ‘Manageable’

After weeks of speculation that a US attack on North Korea could be imminent, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, who played a substantial role in the rhetoric that fueled that belief, sought to play down the idea of an immediate attack, saying that the US is willing to be patient and will not strike so long as the threat is considered “manageable.”

This is in stark contrast to official statements in the past month, with Tillerson having declared diplomacy to have failed, and Vice President Mike Pence having declared the era of patience “over” weeks ago. The US continues to add warships, and anti-missile systems to the theater of operations too, with the Pentagon having just warned Congress of the potential for large-scale consequences for a new Korean War.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Secretary of State Tillerson, a word, please: what does "manageable" even mean in the context of North Korea?!?

I don't think that Tillerson's comments, coupled with the statements of Pacific Commander Admiral Harry Harris on this issue, are any kind of "deliberate ambiguity"; I think this sharp, and painfully clear, difference of opinion on the path forward, demonstrates a very schizophrenic split in the American Deep State as to how to go about getting North Korea to do what the US government wants it do do.

And that is a very dangerous state of affairs for American foreign policy toward North Korea.
