Firm Behind "Trump Dossier" Refuses To Comply With Congressional Subpoena

The three co-founders of Fusion GPS, the opposition research firm responsible for overseeing the creation of the infamous “Trump dossier”, will refuse to comply with a subpoena ordered by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, according to a letter from their attorneys originally obtained by Business Insider.

But experts say the argument their lawyers are using to ask that they be excused relies on shaky legal grounds, and is unlikely to hold.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Their reasons for refusing to comply with a House Intelligence Committee, and running the risk of a Contempt of Congress resolution, are probably very simple; the dossier was a farce and fabrication from beginning to end.

US Deploys Special Forces "Decapitation" Team To South Korea

Today, the South Korean and U.S. navies kicked off massive combined drills off the coast of the Korean peninsula amid heightened tensions, a training exercise which North Korea has warned may prompt another ballistic missile launch potentially to coincide with the launch of the Chinese 19th Party Congress on October 18. The two allies plan to continue the Maritime Counter Special Operations Exercise (MCSOFEX) through Friday in the East Sea and the Yellow Sea.

As reported over the weekend, the drill involves the U.S. 7th Fleet's aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan (CVN-76) and two Arleigh Burke-class destroyers - the USS Stethem (DDG-63) and the USS Mustin (DDG-89). The carrier strike group will train with South Korean warships and other defense assets, such as the Sejong the Great Aegis ship and P-3 Orion anti-submarine aircraft in the East Sea.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

While the info reported from Yonhap might be true, why blab it to the world, and lose the element of surprise?!?

Do they think that such a rumor is going to get Kim Jung Un to back down from his defense of his nuclear missile program?!?

Are they trying to provoke him into an attack by letting this info get out?!?

The ultimate reason for such a statement about the decap strike team to get made public like this is...very cloudy and occult right now.

I am in Guantánamo Bay. The US government is starving me to death: Khalid Qassim

I haven’t had food in my stomach for 23 days. The 20 September was the day they told us they would no longer feed us. They have decided to leave us to waste away and die instead.

I am in so much pain every minute that I know it can’t go on much longer. Now as each night comes, I wonder if I will wake up in the morning. When will my organs fail? When will my heart stop? I am slowly slipping away and no one notices.

There is a man who is in charge of all the medical staff. I don’t know his name but they call him the senior medical officer. He was the one who called us all in and told us they would stop feeding us. As soon as he took over I knew he was bad news and now he has decided to end our lives.

I don’t have many days left.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So this... no trial, no medical treatment, no compassion, and utterly, no rule of law- is what "justice" looks like at Gitmo.

I am appalled and sickened by this, and if the US government and military continue with this treatment of prisoners of war, President Trump just might as well remove the US as a signator to the Geneva Conventions on the treatment of prisoners of war.

...Or does he even know the US government ever signed it?!? At this point, I wouldn't bet against that!!

North Korea invites Iran to struggle together against US’ unfair steps - delegation leaderMore:http://tass.com/world/970795

. North Korea invites Iran to pool efforts to "struggle against injustice" of the United States’ unfairness," Deputy Chairman of North Korea’s Supreme People’s Assembly An Tong Chun, who heads his country’s delegation to the Inter-Parliamentary Union Assembly, said at a brief meeting with speaker of Iran’s parliament (Mejlis) Ali Larijani on Sunday.
"Thank you for your speech. It was a brilliant speech," he said.
"We have a strong will against offenders, we and you have been struggling for a long time," he noted. "Let us struggle together against injustice, for justice."

Earlier in the day, Larijani severely criticized the United States’ actions, including those related to the Iran nuclear deal. He said that US President Donald Trump is demonstrating disrespect to the United Nations and inability to implement international agreements.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Speaker Larijani, please do not go for this; sir, I am on my knees with lighted candles in each hand, because what passes for the alleged "free press" in this country, i.e., the corporate Presstitutes who simply regurgitate government propaganda, are already demonizing your country by linking it to North Korea, and suggesting that you are assisting North Korea in its nuclear weapons program.

And we have already heard the grating statement from President Trump's "BimboBassador to the UN, Nikki Haley yesterday:

US Envoy to UN Says Trump's Move on Iran Nuclear Deal Message to North Korea

Oh, yes, Ambassador Haley, a message was sent from President Trump, loudly and clearly; the US government believes that it has the right of refusal to honor any deals which have been made in good faith, therefore, North Korea is correct in their not engaging any negotiations with the US.

Joint US and South Korean Navy Drills Kick Off Around the Korean Peninsula

The joint week-long navy drills of the US and South Korean fleets have kicked off. About 40 vessels, including the aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan, are taking part in maneuvers in the waters around the Korean Peninsula.

The naval drills are aimed at exercising a possible strike against the key military sites of Pyongyang in case of an emergency situation on the Korean peninsula, the YTN TV channel said on Monday

US submarines USS Tucson and USS Michigan are also currently in the ports of South Korea, the media said.

On Thursday, the US 7th Fleet issues a statement, saying that US aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan and Arleigh Burke-class destroyers USS Stethem and USS Mustin will also take part in the drills.

The exercises come against the backdrop of escalating pressure on Korean peninsula over Pyongyang’s missile and nuclear tests.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF, in fact, these exercises only last for one week, then the "window" for a false flag/decap strike, is very small.

And that statement in the 2nd paragraph of the article, stating "The naval drills are aimed at exercising a possible strike against the key military sites of Pyongyang in case of an emergency situation on the Korean peninsula, the YTN TV channel said on Monday." is very worrisome.

That "emergency situation" will most likely come, courtesy of a US false flag.

It appears that those in the bowels of power in DC have gone deaf, dumb, and blind, to the Chinese government's statement that if the US attacks first, they will support North Korea.

In light of the fact that Mike and I are sitting on a first-strike target which China can actually target - and obliterate - color us more than a little nervous for the next week or so.

There is one resource I look at on a consistent basis, regarding North
Korea, and that is the website 38north.org: I encourage you to bookmark it.

This research group, under the auspices of John Hopkins University, is a pretty sober and sane evaluation of actions going on in North Korea, regarding their weapons program, and the information is done via satellite tracking.

Unfortunately, the last posed article is datemarked Friday. And on Friday, there was no mention whatsoever of movement of North Korean missiles as a prelude to a launch; and getting missiles to their launch sites does require preparation.

Bombing in Somalia's capital has left more than 230 dead and hundreds more injured

A horrific bomb attack in Somalia's capital on Saturday killed at least 231 people and wounded hundreds of others.

A vehicle packed with explosives detonated outside the entrance of a busy hotel in Mogadishu in what authorities are calling the deadliest attack ever in the Horn of Africa which includes the countries Djibouti, Eritrea, Ethiopia, and Somalia.

Notorious US Regime-Change Specialist Targets Hungarian PM Orban

Many readers likely never heard the name of the remarkable Serbia-born political operator named Sr?a Popovi?.

Yet he and his organization, CANVAS, have played a lead role in most every CIA-backed Color Revolution since he led the toppling of Serbian President Slobodan Milosevic in 2000, at least fifty according to last count.

On September 8, the professional regime-change specialist Sr?a Popovi? came to Budapest and joined with the anti-Orban opposition groups in front of the Hungarian Parliament.

It‘s clear that Popovi? was not in town to promote his Hungarian book on nonviolent regime change but rather to give aid to the anti-Orban parties before Hungarian elections in spring of 2018.

Many in Hungary smell the oily hand of Hungarian-born regime-change financier George Soros behind the Popovi? appearance now in Budapest.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The current Hungarian government, under Orban, is enforcing borders; language; and culture. They have seen what a mess unrestricted immigration has made of Germany, Sweden, Norway, and beyond, and want no part of it.

When people want to assimilate; train to work and be competitive; and embrace the cultural identity of their adoptive country, that's one thing; but attempting to enforce the cultural norms of their former countries; never learning the language, and living in the victimhood of entitlement... that is a whole different kettle of kumquats!!

Tillerson Pledges Diplomacy With North Korea ‘Until the First Bomb Drops’

Tillerson’s comments on CNN’s “State of the Union” program on Sunday apparently weren’t meant literally as a timeline for war, as he preceded that quote by saying, “He has made it clear to me to continue my diplomatic efforts,” and that those efforts “will continue until the first bomb drops.”

Still, they came as South Korean military officials are readying for another possible missile launch by Pyongyang. Multiple South Korean media reports citing unidentified military officials on Saturday and Sunday said North Korean missile vehicles “kept appearing and disappearing” from the map and “transporter erector launchers” had been spotted carrying ballistic missiles

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why am I getting the very uneasy feeling, with Tillerson's having used that precise langugate, that we are looking at a "false flag" here, to be blamed upon North Korea, as the justification for an attack against it?!?

THE EMPIRE COMES HOME COUNTERINSURGENCY, POLICING, AND THE MILITARIZATION OF AMERICA’S CITIES

Brutal Connections

As in Baghdad, so in Baltimore. It’s connected, you see. Scholars, pundits, politicians, most of us in fact like our worlds to remain discretely and comfortably separated. That’s why so few articles, reports, or op-ed columns even think to link police violence at home to our imperial pursuits abroad or the militarization of the policing of urban America to our wars across the Greater Middle East and Africa. I mean, how many profiles of the Black Lives Matter movement even mention America’s 16-year war on terror across huge swaths of the planet? Conversely, can you remember a foreign policy piece that cited Ferguson? I doubt it.

Nonetheless, take a moment to consider the ways in which counterinsurgency abroad and urban policing at home might, in these years, have come to resemble each other and might actually be connected phenomena:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Sometimes, one has to wonder if this divisiveness is not actually being "pushed" by elements in the American deep State, to encourage the level of divisiveness and strife necessary for generating a suspension of the Constitution and Bill of Rights, and the imposition of martial law in this country.

I am part of a Methodist faith community, and I deeply appreciate it for its absolute inclusivity; the gentle, non-coercive education of its kids in their faith tradition; love of community; and love expressed beyond the community as practical acts of kindness throughout Oahu and the world.

But I can absolutely see that in the Imperial "mind set", very much in motion on the mainland, and areas of the world the US has "conquered" to access their resources, you do have elements of degradation; prejudice; the objectification and demonization of "the other"; and massive demoralization of people just trying to survive.

I cannot begin to imagine what it must be like for women in inner city neighborhoods, when their teens go out to be with friends, and never be quite certain that they will come home, or come home alive. That, frankly, would scare the stuffing out of me.

IRAN'S TOP GENERAL MEETS WITH KURDISH PRESIDENT BARZANI AS U.S. NEOCONS PUSH FOR WAR

In an unexpected diplomatic turn of events which underscores the seriousness of escalating tensions between the Iraqi government and the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG), the head of Iran's elite Revolutionary Guard (which last week were designated by the US as a terrorist organization), General Qassem Soleimani, arrived in Erbil on Sunday and met with Kurdistan regional president Masoud Barzani to discuss the growing crisis at a moment when Kurdish Peshmerga forces are blocking Iraqi Army access to Kirkuk oil fields and military installations.

Major General Qassem Soleimani reports directly to Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, and his elite force provides training and weapons to Iraqi paramilitary groups (PMU or Popular Mobilization Units) backing the Baghdad government. The meeting comes just after President Trump announced his new policy against Iran on Friday that includes designating the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) a foreign terrorist organization.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What I am seeing here, from the US State Department, White House, and Pentagon, is foreign policy via dartboard, with no cohesive, top-down overview whatsoever.

And from yesterday, courtesy of zerohedge.com, we have the very much expected headline:

Casualties reported after Iraqi Troops Enter Oil Rich Kurdish City, Kirkuk: Oil "Spikes.

ISRAELI FIGHTER JETS LAUNCH AIR STRIKE ON SYRIAN AIR DEFENSE BATTERY NEAR DAMASCUS

After years of undermining the regime of Syrian leader Bashar al Assad, an effort that has seen Israel countenance ISIS training camps near its borders and launch recurring missile strikes on Syrian territory and its army bases while threatening to bomb Assad's palace, the simmering conflict between the two nations broke out into the open once again overnight.

The Israeli Defense Forces confirmed that Israeli Air Force fighters conducted a missile strike against a Syrian base after a missile was fired at Israeli jets on a routine aerial reconnaissance mission in Lebanese airspace, Russia's news agency Sputnik reports. No people were in injured, and the Israeli jets returned safely, but not before attacking an anti-aircraft battery east of the Syrian capital of Damascus. As usual, The IDF blamed the Syrian government for the incident, however, presenting no proof to support the claim. Damascus has yet to comment on the situation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The IDF most probably cannot present "proof" because there is none.

And remember that the attack happened over Lebanese air space; not Syrian air space.

I hope to heck Russian President Putin is working the phones like crazy, to inform his counterpart, Prime Minister Netanyahu, that events like this will no longer be tolerated by the Syrian or Russian airspace.

Puerto Rico's streets crawl with heavily armed, masked mercenaries bearing no insignia or nametags

Though Puerto Rican law prohibits ownership and bearing of most long-guns and especially semiautomatic weapons, the streets of the stricken US colony now throng with mercenaries in tactical gear bearing such arms, their faces masked. They wear no insignia or nametags and won't say who they work for, apart from vague statements in broken Spanish: "We work with the government. It’s a humanitarian mission, we’re helping Puerto Rico."

Iraq Kurds Set Up Defensive Line Around Kirkuk

That Iraqi security forces have managed to advance uncontested in the Kirkuk Province today does not indicate that the Kurdish Peshmerga don’t intend to put up a fight. Quite the contrary, Kurdish officials say the Peshmerga are falling back to a defensive line around the city of Kirkuk itself.

Historically a city with a substantial Kurdish population, oil-rich Kirkuk saw much of its Kurdish population expelled by the Saddam Hussein-era government, trying to bring loyal Sunni Arabs in to ensure control of the city. Kurdish Peshmerga seized the city in 2014, during the ISIS War, and have been moving a lot of Kurds back in. Kurdish leaders have ruled out handing over Kirkuk again.

Now, with Iraq’s central government advancing, parliament authorizing the use of ground troops to retake Kirkuk, thousands of Peshmerga are taking up positions, with Kurdish officials saying the orders are to defend the city at any cost.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

With these military activities going on, between the Iraqi troops and the Kurdish Peshmerga, it appears that Iraq is, once more, on the cusp of another horrific civil war.

Trump Is Signaling an Unprecedented Right Turn on Foreign Policy

Every few years – sometimes four, sometimes eight – America’s political mood swings from one pole to another.

It’s a not-uncommon disorder for democracies. Voters get disgusted with one flavor of politics and opt for another. For better or worse, the United States doesn’t have a Baskin-Robbins democracy. So, the vacillations in Americans’ political taste can only pendulum between chocolate and vanilla.

It’s one thing for America to lurch from one end of the spectrum to the other on fiscal matters, the advisability of universal health care, or the economic impact of immigration.

On foreign policy, however, the shifts are not just mystifying to those outside U.S. borders, they’re downright frightening.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unfortuntately, it appears to me, courtesy of President Trump's "whisperers" (including Kelly; Mattis; Mc Masters; Netanyahu; and Kissinger) we are looking down the double barrels of a war against Iran, which will most probably mean a war with Russia, as Russian politicians and military leaders have vowed to defend it, should it come under attack.

I cannot say precisely when; but the extreme demonization of the Iranian government, and its people, is on full-tilt boogie right now, courtesy of the presstitute corporate media, and that kind of narrative is generally the prelude to war.

Remember: narratives are crafted to fulfill an agenda; right now, the agenda is attempting to convince the American people that they need to sacrifice their sons and daughters on the field of battle to create regime change in Tehran; give the US and Israel access to Iran's resources; and make sure that those resources are only sold in American dollars.

THAT... is what is going on right now.

But understanding how intensely those in the Bowels of Power in DC have lied to the American people to "bring them to heel", in terms of supporting its wars of conquest, I want all of you to think about this very carefully; are the lives of your fathers; moms; family members and friends; your sons and daughters, worth their sacrifice to this agenda, which is patently economic in nature?!?

There is only one intelligent answer to this question, and that is, HELL, NO!!

The Deep State’s Bogus ‘Iranian Threat’

Thursday we identified a permanent fiscal crisis as one of the quadruple witching forces arising in October 2017 which will shatter the global financial bubble. Today the Donald is on the cusp of making the crisis dramatically worse by decertifying the Iranian nuke deal, thereby reinforcing another false narrative that enables the $1 trillion Warfare State to continue bleeding the nation’s fiscal solvency.

In a word, the whole notion that Iran is a national security threat and state sponsor of terrorism is just as bogus as the Russian meddling story or the claim that the chain of events resulting from the coup d’ etat fostered by Washington on the streets of Kiev in February 2014 is evidence of Russian expansionism and aggression.

Likewise, it’s part of the same tissue of lies which led to Washington’s massive, destructive and counterproductive interventions in Syria and Libya – when neither regime posed an iota of threat to the safety and security of the American homeland.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

False narratives are those engineered to favor the agendas of the Deep State, which are, these days, generally war-centric activities, in order to create regime changes; expropriate resources to which American companies, and their international subsidiaries, have absolutely no moral right; and to insure those resources are only sold with American approval, and in American dollars; it is just that simple.

When Karl Marx made the observation that all wars are economic in origin, he was absolutely correct.

This nonsense that Iran poses any real "threat" to Americans is just that; nonsense, engineered to demonize the Iranian government and the Iranian people to the point where the US government believes the American people will be ready to fight in a war against it.

There is only one industrial strength problem here; the US government has lied the American people into numerous previous wars, and the American people understand this.

They are not war-ready, or war-centric; they are war weary, and war-sceptical.

They understand the concept of how false flags are used as a tool of American statescraft, to create wars, and this goes back to our current understanding of how the Japanese were "tricked" into bombing Pearl Harbor, to get this country into World War II by what FDR's administration had done.

Pearl Harbor: Hawaii was surprised: Roosevelt was Not

I have posted an earlier article today about totally some totally unconfirmed reports that Pyongyang was going to test another missile next week.

I am frankly hoping and praying that DC is not planning to have Oahu play the part of the "sacrificial lamb" again by way of a false flag aimed at this island, to be blamed on North Korea, as the "justification" for an all-out attack against it.

US Commander: More Embedded Troops Will Break Afghan Stalemate

Gen. Joseph Votel, the head of Central Command, expressed confidence at the ongoing US escalation in Afghanistan, saying he is “seeing some positive trends” in the war, and thinks the US is on the right track, some 16 years into the war.

Votel cited the increased number of US troops embedded with Afghan forces, nominally as “advisers,” as an important part of the move to “break the stalemate” in Afghanistan, which he was confident would happen.

The “stalemate” conceit is something Pentagon officials have claimed for a long time, explaining that the war isn’t being won because it’s in a stalemate. In reality, US-backed forces have been losing ground for years, and hold less territory than at any time since the 2001 invasion.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

General Votel, a word please; we are not leaving Afghanistan because the US government and military are collectively terrified that we are losing yet another war we had no business getting into in the first place.

Afghanistan is not characterized as "the graveyard of empires" for no good reason; the British, and later the Russians found that out.

It is time, sir, for the American miilitary and politicans to cut their losses here, and bring US and NATO troops home as quickly as safely possible, then negotiate with whatever government is left in Kabul for the pipeline and mineral rights.

You do, sir, understand that it was the disagreement on payment for the pipeline rights, coupled with the instability of the Taliban government which got the US military in Afghanistan in the first place, RIGHT?!?

As reported by globalresearch.ca in June, 2010:

B. What Was the Motive for the Invasion? This conclusion is reinforced by reports indicating that the United States had made the decision to invade Afghanistan two months before the 9/11 attacks. At least part of the background to this decision was the United States’ long-time support for UNOCAL’s proposed pipeline, which would transport oil and natural gas from the Caspian Sea region to the Indian Ocean through Afghanistan and Pakistan.15 This project had been stymied through the 1990s because of the civil war that had been going on in Afghanistan since the Soviet withdrawal in 1989. In the mid-1990s, the US government had supported the Taliban with the hope that its military strength would enable it to unify the country and provide a stable government, which could protect the pipeline. By the late 1990s, however, the Clinton administration had given up on the Taliban.16 When the Bush administration came to power, it decided to give the Taliban one last chance. During a four-day meeting in Berlin in July 2001, representatives of the Bush administration insisted that the Taliban must create a government of “national unity” by sharing power with factions friendly to the United States. The US representatives reportedly said: “Either you accept our offer of a carpet of gold, or we bury you under a carpet of bombs.”17 After the Taliban refused this offer, US officials told a former Pakistani foreign secretary that “military action against Afghanistan would go ahead . . . before the snows started falling in Afghanistan, by the middle of October at the latest.”18 And, indeed, given the fact that the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon occurred when they did, the US military was able to mobilize to begin its attack on Afghanistan by October 7. It appears, therefore, that the United States invaded Afghanistan for reasons far different from the official rationale, according to which we were there to capture or kill Osama bin Laden.

General Vogel, your statements here are tantamount to what can best be characterized as "magical thinking"; your troops, and this country, deserve far better than this!!

Israeli minister says Trump speech may start war with Iran

Israel’s intelligence minister said U.S. President Donald Trump’s speech against the 2015 international nuclear deal with Iran on Friday was “very significant” and could lead to war given threats that preceded it from Tehran.

Israel’s Channel 2 TV asked Intelligence Minister Israel Katz whether he saw a risk of war after Trump’s speech.

“Absolutely, yes. I think that the speech was very significant,” Katz responded. “Iran is the new North Korea. We see where things are goings.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, Intelligence Minister Katz, what will be the Israeli contribution to such a war, in light of the fact that you, and the rest of the Israeli government (and that of Saudi Arabia) are so gleefully egging on those in the Bowels of Power in the the Occupied Unhinged Surveilled States of Amerika to do this?!?

Will you provide troops, planes, ships, and logistical support?!? To what will you publicly commit, if the US goes to full all-out to war against Iran?!?

Minister Katz, I... and the world... are awaiting your verbal, recorded response to this question; but all I am getting here is deafening silence.

So what you, and the rest of the Israeli government in Tel Aviv (and Saudi Arabia) are expecting is that the costs for this war are to be borne solely in American blood and American money?!?

I am sorry, sir; your government's objectives and those of We the People absolutely do not align on this issue; if you want a war with Iran, please fight it yourself; we are singularly uninterested in fighting it for you, and will be thororoughly enraged if President Trump puts this nation into this position, and will peacefully insure that he will be decidedly a one-term president.

Pentagon Reviews Plans, Seeking Ways to Confront Iran

According to Pentagon spokesman Maj. Adrian Rankine-Galloway, the US military has begun a review o the “full breadth” of their activities in the Middle East, including troop positioning and cooperation, looking for ways to target Iran.

The comments came after President Trump’s Iran speech, in which he laid out a much more confrontational approach toward the country, and Pentagon officials couched their position as one of supporting the president’s plans.

Maj. Rankine-Galloway said the focus would be on neutralizing Iran’s influence across the region, “particularly its support for terrorist groups and militants.” This suggests the Pentagon looking to pick more fights against Shi’ite forces in Syria.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Non fact-based foreign policy seems to be a major specialty of the Trump administration these days.

And I would like to ask Maj. Rankine-Galloway precisely what concrete evidence he has that Iran is supporting alleged "terrorist groups and militants".

If American kids will be ultimately paying the price in blood in a war against Iran, which is the ultimate goal of this US aggression against it, cheerled by Israel's Prime Minister Netanyahu and Saudi Arabia's Prince Salman, the American people have a right to understand why their children should be sacrificed in such a war.

Please remember: both countries want regime change in Tehran, but only at the costs of American blood, and American money. President Trump needs to understand this, and soon, before he makes some very horrible miscalculations here.

‘Iran deal not a bargaining chip’: Trump proved US can break agreements at any time, Moscow says

Trump's toadying for Israel has just ended what little credibility DC had left. The slide into oblivion for dc has begun.

The Russian Foreign Ministry has condemned Donald Trump’s refusal to adhere to the 2015 nuclear agreement with Iran, saying that the move poses a threat to international security and nuclear non-proliferation, and exposes the US as an unreliable partner.

North Korea readies missile launch ahead of US-South Korea drill: Report

SEOUL: North Korea is believed to be preparing to launch a ballistic missile ahead of an upcoming joint naval drill by the US and South Korea, a news report said Saturday, citing a government source.

The US Navy said Friday that a US aircraft carrier will lead the drill in the coming week, a fresh show of force against North Korea as tensions soar over the hermit state's weapons programme.

The move will likely rile Pyongyang which has previously responded angrily to joint exercises.

The Donga Ilbo daily, quoting a government source, said satellite pictures show ballistic missiles mounted on launchers being transported out of hangars near Pyongyang and in the North Phyongan Province.

US and South Korean military officials suspect the North might be preparing to launch missiles capable of reaching US territory, the newspaper said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF, in fact, this report is true, there is no other confirmation of the story I can find; other English outlets have simply copied the story verbatim, like www.hindustantimes.com, and www.tribuneindia.com.

And what is the time stamp on the satellite pictures showing "ballistic missiles being transported out of hangars near Pyongyang"?!? How do we know how recent those images are, or if, in fact, they are from earlier missile tests done by North Korea?!?

There is also no confirmation at 38north.org, a very sober research group sponsored by Johns Hopkins University, dedicated to analyzing satellite and other data, to determine what, as precisely as possible, North Korea is doing with its missile program.

But what most deeply disturbs me about the timing of this article, not to mention the "weasel wording", peppering the article with statements like "believed to be": "suspect"; "believed to be preparing" with absolutely zero confimation elsewhere, is that it feels as though this article has been crafted and planted by various "alphabet soup" US agencies as a cover for a "false flag",to insure that this alleged coming "North Korean missile testing" is to be whispered and chatted up as though it were gospel truth, then to be blamed on North Korea as the justification for a US-led war against it.

Unfortunately, in light of the fact that Kim Jung Un doesn't seem to be willing to give those in the bowels of power in the Occupied, Unhinged, States of Amerika the excuse they want for starting a war against North Korea, that excuse may well be created for him. False flags have been part and parcel of American statescraft for decades.

AMERICANS HAVE NEVER BEEN MORE OVERWEIGHT THEN THEY ARE NOW – NEW SURVEY FINDS 40% OF U.S. ADULTS ARE OBESE

Americans have never needed to lose weight more than they do right now. According to brand new numbers that were just released by the National Center For Health Statistics, nearly 40 percent of all U.S. adults are now officially obese. That is an all-time record. And as you will see below, more than 70 percent of us are officially overweight. Of course most of the population does not even understand what is being done to them. The elite that own our major food corporations know that eating heavily processed foods is a highway to heart disease, cancer, diabetes and other deadly diseases, but they keep pushing those foods on us anyway. The average American diet is extremely self-destructive, and it is time for a change.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Michael has lost about 100 pounds over the last two years; I have lost about 40, from my heaviest weight. We both have cardiovascular issues in our respective families and knew we needed to slim down, if we wanted a chance for a healthier life as we got older. It's nice to know that I can fit into a Sam's Club size 10 jean comfortably, at 68!!

You have to let your grocery store or big box store manager understand tht you want unprocessed, fresh, organic food; otherwise, you will shop elsewhere where you can find it.

Some suppliers at the "big box store" have already received the message, and are providing more organic food; some still need to.

Even if you have to buy from a health food store, where the prices can be very high, that is a far better investment in your health than buying the crud available at most super markets.

Las Vegas Shooting Victim: “There Was 100% More Than One Shooter,” Gates To Concert Were Locked Shortly Before Attack

Las Vegas mass shooting victim Rocky Palermo was shot in the pelvis during the horrific attack and is now speaking out about what he saw and believes happened, including the presence of multiple shooters as well as locked concert gates and police telling frantic civilians to go in the other direction.

Palermo, who has done various interviews since the attack, appeared on “The Blast” with a series of shocking comments that correlate with various other reports indicating that multiple shooters carried out the attack and that the FBI is actively covering this up.

“I definitely do believe that there was 100% more than one shooter, every other person that I’ve talked to that did unfortunately get hit as well, have all said the same things,” Palermo detailed.

The man then goes on to explain that after being shot he ran “about 200 yards” to hide behind a car, all the while hearing bullets fly past him at what he believes was ground level.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This reeks of setup. And this article in USSA News, posted today, confirms some very dicey inconsistencies about the story from the get-go, including interviewees getting their phones and labtops wiped clean:

'He's an actual PREDATOR': Emma Thompson calls out Harvey Weinstein and says she 'spent her twenties trying to get old men's tongues out of her mouth' as she details rampant sexual harassment in film industry

Emma Thompson says she had no idea that Harvey Weinstein had been sexually harassing and assaulting young stars over the past three decades, but the actress and Oscar-winning screenwriter is not surprised she told BBC News.

The British star, 58, said that behavior like Weinstein's is 'endemic to the system,' and something she has experienced with 'many' other men in similar positions over the years.

Asked if there were others in Hollywood like Weinstein, she said: ‘Of course, many, many...I spent my 20s trying to keep old men’s tongues out of my mouth.’

She also dismissed the idea that Weinstein's behavior was the result of addiction.

'I don't think you can describe him as a sex addict. He's a predator,' said Thompson.

'He's an actual predator, he's dangerous and what he's done and what he's doing is criminal.'

U.S. Supreme Court Lets Stand Lower Court Ruling That Could Endanger First Amendment Activity by Expanding 'Government Speech' Doctrine

In a move that could lead to a dangerous expansion of the “government speech” doctrine in order to limit any speech that occurs on government property, the U.S. Supreme Court has refused to review a federal appeals court ruling that places highway rest areas off limits for First Amendment activities. In refusing to hear the case of Vista-Graphics v. Virginia Dept. of Transportation, the Supreme Court let stand a decision allowing the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) to restrict the content of privately authored, illustrated, printed and funded travel guides distributed at highway rest areas and welcome centers. The Rutherford Institute filed an amicus curiae brief in the case, warning that First Amendment activities in public places would be endangered if the government were allowed to expand its “government speech” doctrine under the guise of regulating the content of travel guides.

Power Grid Failures: CA Wildfires Are Now A Serious Critical Catastrophic Event

The death toll continues to rise because of the California wildfires currently scorching across wine country. With 23 dead and hundreds missing, the fires are labeled as a “serious critical catastrophic event” complete with power grid failures.

The wind known as the Diablo is picking up again, the air is dry, there is no rain in sight and the killer wildfires that have scorched the wine country of Northern California remain almost completely uncontained. Officials warned Wednesday that some of the big fires could merge making them almost impossible to contain. While thousands have been told to evacuate or prepare to leave their homes, hundreds are missing and 23 are dead.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Looks as though these fires about to go from bad to worse.

The little red pill being pushed on the elderly

The maker of a little red pill intended to treat a rare condition is raking in hundreds of millions of dollars a year as it aggressively targets frail and elderly nursing home residents for whom the drug may be unnecessary or even unsafe,?a CNN investigation has found.

And much of the money is coming straight from the federal government.
The pill, called Nuedexta, is approved to treat a disorder marked by sudden and uncontrollable laughing or crying -- known as pseudobulbar affect, or PBA. This condition afflicts less than 1% of all Americans, based on a calculation using the drugmaker's own figures, and it is most commonly associated with people who have multiple sclerosis (MS) or ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig's disease.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One of the many reasons why drug companies are so financially successful, is that doctors are compensated for prescribing "off book" prescriptions by the pharmaceutical houses manufacturing theer drugs.

I know this from experience, because it actually happened to me.

At 68, if an MD starts talking about an "off book" prescription for something I am dealing with, meaning it has not been tested for specific issues for which they want me to take a drug, I have zero problem asking them: "Are you being compensated by the manufacturer of this drug to prescribe it"?!?

It is a VERY reasonable question to ask your MD; if they balk and hem and haw, they probably are being compensated by the drug manufacturer.

Israel cancels ban on racist answers in civics exam

The Education Ministry has canceled a prohibition against giving racist answers on the civics matriculation exam.

The original rule, published shortly before the school year began, stated that “racist or inflammatory statements” would result in the response receiving no credit. But a few days ago, the head of the ministry’s pedagogical secretariat, Moshe Weinstock, rescinded this rule, on the grounds, according to the ministry, that “we need to inculcate the change gradually.”

Weinstock was appointed by Education Minister Naftali Bennett. Members of the ministry’s civics advisory committee who are affiliated with Bennett’s Habayit Hayehudi party supported his reversal.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Regarding the education of its kids, what else else would one expect of such a vilely apartheid, self-proclaimed theocracy with nuclear weapons?!?

Democracy and peace are not on Tel Aviv's agendea whatsoever, but it wants the acquisition of territory, and by any means necesssary.

And to demonstrate what I mean, look at the map of Eretz Israel, which is how the Zionists in Israel want to redraw its borders; notice how many other countries lose territory in its quest to create a country with borders which stretch from the Nile to the Euphrates Rivers:

Trump’s Disturbing New Guantánamo Policy: Allowing Hunger Strikers to Starve to Death

Disturbing news from Guantánamo, via the human rights organization Reprieve. Yesterday, in a press release, Reprieve explained that the authorities at Guantánamo have stopped force-feeding hunger-striking prisoners, a practice that has existed for ten years, because of a new Trump administration policy.”

Hunger strikers have existed at Guantánamo almost since the prison opened, and in 2013 a prison-wide hunger strike drew worldwide condemnation for President Obama’s inaction in moving towards closing the prison, as he had promised on his second day in office. Inconvenienced by Republican lawmakers, who had raised considerable obstacles to the release of prisoners, Obama had chosen not to challenge the Republicans, and had, instead, done nothing. The hunger strike changed all that, but towards the end of 2013, after the release of prisoners resumed, the authorities at Guantánamo stopped reporting the numbers of men who were on a hunger strike.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These are not "Unlawful Combatants", as the Bush regime characterized these men; they are prisoners of war, and as such, should be afforded all the rights and priveleges afforded by the Geneva Conventions, to which, I believe, the US government is still (allegedly) a signator.

What the Geneva Conventions said about the treatment of Prisoners of War

They should be either tried for their alleged crimes, or released to a country willing to take them in; it is just that simple.

But what the US military must be terrified about, once these men die from the consequences of their self-induced starvation, are their autopsies getting out, which will most likely demonstarate that for some of them, water boarding was not the only torture they endured.

In blocking arms to Yemen, Saudi Arabia squeezes a starving population

Late last year, the Kota Nazar, a Singaporean ship with 636 containers of steel, paper, medicine and other goods, set sail to Hodeida, the largest cargo port in war-torn Yemen.

It never got there. Like dozens of other ships carrying food and supplies to Yemen over the past 30 months, the Kota Nazar was stopped by a Saudi Arabian warship blocking Yemen’s ports on the Red Sea.

Saudi Arabia and its Arab allies have been stationing naval forces in and around Yemeni waters since 2015. Western governments approved the show of military force as a way to stop arms reaching Houthi fighters trying to overthrow Yemen’s internationally recognized government.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There's one very real fact that Reuters is omitting with great impunity here: the US government and military have been the primary enablers of Saudi's genocide against the Yemeni people, by providing both the weapons and "guidance" for their bombing runs.

Take a good, hard look at the image of that emaciated child its mom is holding up; now, imagine that was your kid. How would you feel, knowing the that it was the OUSSA (The Occupied, Unhinged States of America) contributing to that child's slow death, through malnutrition, by supporting the Saudi military here?!?

Folks, this is what is being done in Yemen with your tax dollars and in your name.

We need to have a quiet, peaceful, Quaker-like conversation, nationally, about this, then peacefully petition the US government to stop our involvement in this genocidal war against Yemen RIGHT THE HECK NOW!!!

Trump Expected to Designate Iran’s Revolutionary Guard as Terrorists

President Trump will announce his decertification of the P5+1 nuclear deal with Iran this week, and the White House has said he will provide details on his overall strategy for Iran going forward.

Today, we may have our first idea what this might entail, as officials are being quoted as saying President Trump is “likely” to designate Iran’s Revolutionary Guard a terrorist organization.

This would be the first time the US has ever designated a branch of another country’s military as “terrorists,” and would be hugely problematic, signaling growing US hostility toward Iran. Opponents of the move warn it risks provoking an Iranian retaliation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

About what alleged "bad behavour" is President Trump speaking, when he and his cronies can offer utterly no "proof" of such activities, and Iran is documented by the IAEA to be conforming to the P5+1 treaty completely?!?

I will chance a prediciction here, and hope to heaven that I am wrong; the US will be at war against Iran within the year, and the OUSSA (Occupied, Unhinged, Survieilled States of Amerika) will be reinstituting the draft, for both our young men, and our young women in this time frame.

I don't want to be "Mrs. Chicken Little of Oahu" here, but the tempo, and scope, of potential war against both North Korea and Iran, seem to be compounding incrementally.

Note that relatively recently (back in September), President Trump made the accusation that North Korea and Iran were colluding on their mutual weapons program.

Iran colluding with N. Korea on nukes: Trump

This linkage is truly troubling, and telegraphs clearly that he and his "Presidential Whisperers" have some very clear and present plans for attacking both countries militarily, although were I a betting person, I would bet that North Korea will be the first to be targeted in this manner.

I cannot believe that the President's advisors would have any confidence in doing two attempted decap strikes simultaneously,and expecting both of them to succeed.

Israel Approves Thousands More Settlement Homes in the West Bank

Israeli NGO Peace Now has announced that the government has approved plans for another 3,736 settlement units across the occupied West Bank. Details are still emerging on where they are located, but they include expansions in settlements deep in Palestinian territory.

Though Israel’s far-right government has been building at a rapid pace, previous announcements have centered primarily on the major settlement blocs, which Israel expects to annex in any peace deal. They present this as less controversial than expanding outposts near major Palestinian cities, or those built simply to cut off parts of Palestine to undermine a Palestinian state.

Peace Now warned that the current rate of expansion means Israel risks a “record year” of settlement expansion. They said this was in no small part because President Trump is seen as very accommodating to the construction.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That both Israel's Netanyahu and Saudi Arabia's Prince Salman now fall under the category of President Trump's relatively new BFFs, does not augur well for peace in the Middle East at all.

US withdraws from Unesco over 'anti-Israel bias'

The United States has withdrawn from Unesco over what it claims is the organisation's "continuing anti-Israel bias".

The US State Department recently announced its intention to withdraw from the UN's cultural, scientific and educational organisation and become a permanent observer instead.

"This decision was not taken lightly, and reflects US concerns with mounting arrears at Unesco, the need for fundamental reform in the organisation, and continuing anti-Israel bias at Unesco," the State Department said in a statement.

The country hopes to remain a non-member observer state, in order to contribute US opinions and expertise on issues like press freedoms and protecting world heritage, according to the Department. The decision will take effect at the end of 2018.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unfortunately, in President Trump's world view, no matter how many Palestinian homes are demolished in the West Bank or East Jerusalem; no matter how many Palestinian children are killed or tortured in jail by the IDF in order to exact "confessions" from them; no matter how deeply Israel's "final solution" to the "Palestinian Problem prevents Palestinians from getting desperately needed medical care outside of Gaza; the government of Israel, fronted by their evil incarnate Prime Minister Netanyahu, can do utterly no wrong.

With that being said, and understanding that Netanyahu is one of the most influential of President Trump's "whisperers", look for a US-sponsored war against Iran to begin in the not too distant future, bringing back the draft, and engaging with Russia over Iran, as Russian military and civilian leaders have sworn to protect it, should it come under US attack.

Israel has been cheerleading for decades for regime change in Tehran; what President Trump needs to understand, and sadly, does not, is that Tel Aviv is counting on the costs of such a war to be primarily borne by American blood and American money.

NATO LAUNCHES NEW BLACK SEA FORCE TO TARGET RUSSIA

NATO has announced the launching of their multinational Black Sea Force, based in Romania, and including an entire Romanian brigade of 4,000 troops. The force is there to target Russia in the Black Sea region.

Romania insisted the deployment is “not a threat to Russia” and that the purpose of having more troops there to “target” Russia is “peace, not war.” 900 US troops were deployed to Romania to participate in this force.

Since Russia doesn’t border NATO anywhere in the Black Sea region, the force appears to be largely pointless, except for additional grandstanding about NATO’s “readiness” for a fight with “invading” Russian forces, in an invasion that’s been predicted for years.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The politicians of Romania appear to be incapable of logic; why in the name of heaven would Russia want to invade Romania, and risk a war with NATO because of doing such a thing?!?

The short answer is, Putin would never do this.

This NATO naval fleet is simply another annoyance and provocation of Russia, which has done absoutely nothing to earn it.

Rejecting Sonos' private data slurp basically bricks bloke's boombox

"I'm deeply disappointed at their arrogance that they feel free to cut support for those of us who won't blindly accept new contract terms whenever they see fit," he said. "Whether I'm happy with the new terms or not is irrelevant to this issue. I might have considered accepting them had they not been forced in this way."

Dave also expressed concern that Sonos feels it's acceptable to keep personal data unnecessarily.

"Most of all, as a fairly senior technical person, I cannot fathom their requirement to keep my IP address on file for a device which offers no push functionality whatsoever. This is pure Big Brother at its best and needs to either be justified or stopped," our reader said. "I'd suggest that Sonos users monitor and firewall these devices in future. I'm probably going back to a traditional setup with buttons, stereo speakers, and wires. The sound was better, control better, and it still works after 20 years, without ever even needing any kind of agreement in place."

Armed Robots Could Soon Be Seen in Ukraine Conflict

Are we on the verge of entering the age of robotic warfare?

Russian-backed troops in Ukraine could soon be facing armed ground robots in battle. Ukrainian military leaders proudly displayed their Phantom robot at the Association of the U.S. Army annual meeting in Washington, D.C. on Monday, Defense One reports. The robot is currently in an experimental phase, but reportedly could be used in combat in Ukraine as early as next year.

Depending on the terrain, the Phantom (also spelled Fantom) can be outfitted with treads like a tank or wheels. It can also be armed with anti-tank weapons, grenade launchers or machine guns.

The Phantom is also equipped with a backup microwave-communication link, which allows it to continue operating even if its connection with the operator has been jammed or hacked.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Is this article telegraphing that the Government of the Occupied, Unhinged, Surveilled States of America will be at war with Russia in Ukraine the biginning of next year?!?

I sincerely hope not!!

FENTANYL MAKER DONATES BIG TO CAMPAIGN OPPOSING POT LEGALIZATION

An embattled pharmaceutical company that sells the powerful painkiller fentanyl has donated $500,000 toward defeating a ballot initiative that would make recreational use of marijuana legal under Arizona law.

It’s hard to imagine a more sinister donor than Insys Therapeutics Inc. in the eyes of pot legalization proponents, who long have claimed drug companies want to keep cannabis illegal to corner the market for drugs, some addictive and dangerous, that relieve pain and other symptoms.

Insys currently markets just one product, according to an August filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission: a sublingual fentanyl spray it calls Subsys.

Two former company employees pleaded not guilty last month to federal charges related to an alleged kickback scheme to get doctors to prescribe Subsys.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

this is a consistent pattern, courtesy of oipioid manufacturers, to keep healthier pain-reducing products not available from public consumption, while pushing their own products which are both gravely addictive, and potentially lethal.

Google’s Home Mini Needed a Software Patch to Stop Some of Them from Recording Everything

Categorize this under “one of the worst possible PR nightmares for a Google smart speaker.” According to Artem Russakovskii at Android Police, the Google Home Mini he was reviewing was randomly and near-constantly recording sounds in his home and transmitting them to Google. The company acknowledged the problem and is issuing a software update to resolve the issue, which appears to boil down to a failure of the touch sensor on the top.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is a surveillance mechanism, pure and simple; Mike and I would never allow something like this in our homes, and neither should you!!

Even if Google swears that the problem is" fixed", I wouldn't trust this to be true at all.

    Last week, for having expressed myself musically via the Internet, I was entertained at Her Majesty’s pleasure during 48 hours.

    Clearly at the beck and call of my predatory stalkers, police first arrested me for an alleged breach of bail outside Court 8 at Westminster Mags then, ten minutes later, de-arrested me. Within half an hour, I was re-arrested on suspicion of inciting racial hatred for my songs (again), handcuffed and carted off to Charing Cross police station where I was held for six hours to await two officers from Derbyshire police to take me back to my home county for questioning.

    A Mysterious Virus Has Infiltrated America's Drone Program

    There’s something deeply wrong at Creech Air Force Base, the notorious home of America’s drone program, where pilots remotely order US Reaper and Predator drones to unleash destructive missile strikes on unsuspecting villagers in Yemen, Libya, Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan and other war zones.

    Less than a week after the Department of Homeland Security advised all federal agencies using anti-virus software created by Kaspersky Labs to remove the programs from their systems immediately, Ars Technica reports that two weeks ago the Defense Information Systems Agency detected mysterious spyware embedded in the drone “cockpits” – the control stations that pilots use to control the deadly machines.

    Webmaster's Commentary: 

    This looks, perhaps, like a coordinated targeting from a state actor with excellent computer capabilities.

    The who and why cannot be demonstrated at this time; but what must be scary to our military experts running the drone program is, that the virus cannot be wiped from their computers.

    Spanish Government Issues Veiled Death Threat To Catalan Leader

    In a quite shocking escalation of the rhetoric in Spain, a spokesman for the ruling People's Party just issued a (barely) veiled death threat to the President of Catalonia.

    "Let's hope that nothing is declared tomorrow because perhaps the person who makes the decalartion will end up like the person who made the declaration 83 years ago."

    Seems about as clear as it gets from Rajoy's PP to Puigdemont - Call for Independence and Die!

    That does not seem to be the reconciliatory tone the market has been hoping for.

    Webmaster's Commentary: 

    Rajoy has just "jumped the shark" in his rhetoric; Is he actually ready to have Puigdemont assassinated?!?

    And how will the Spanish people react to this?!?

    I am sure, with this last salvo, Puigemont's security has been doubled or trebled.

    Iran Vows "Decisive, Crushing" Response If Trump Designates Its Elite Guards As Terrorists

    On Sunday, in its most explicit warning to Donald Trump not to revise the terms of the Nuclear Deal - something the US president is expected to do over the coming days - Iran warned the United States that U.S. regional military bases "would be at risk" if further sanctions were passed. "The Americans should know that the Trump government’s stupid behavior with the nuclear deal will be used by the Islamic Republic as an opportunity to move ahead with its missile, regional and conventional defense program," Iran Revolutionary Guards’ commander Mohammad Ali Jafari said, quoted by Reuters. He then threatened US presence in the region, warning that “if America’s new law for sanctions is passed, this country will have to move their regional bases outside the 2,000 km range of Iran’s missiles."

    Webmaster's Commentary: 

    I would politely suggest that President Trump take Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Qasemi at his word.

    The following article is very illuminative in describing what the Iranian government may do, should such a US decree be issued:

    Iran to declare US Military a Terrorist organisation in a tit for tat response

    On 24 September of this year, President Trump accused Iran of collusion with North Korea on its nuclear program, which is certainly not helping ratchet down the tensions with either country:

    President Trump accuses Iran of Colluding with North Korea on its nuclear program

    The US decertification is going to happen Sunday 15 October, this coming Sunday; South Korean/US military exercises are going to happen around 20 October.

    I am sincerely hoping and praying that the Unholy Quartet of "President Whisperers", consistingof McMaster; Mattis; Kelly; and Netanyahu have not convinced President Trump that he could handle wars against both countries simultaneously and victoriously; such an attack would demonstrate, and create, the failing of the American empire in its last death throes.

    US Warship Approaches Korean Peninsula for Drills with South Korea

    The USS Ronald Reagan aircraft carrier along with a guided-missile cruiser and a nuclear-powered submarine are on their way to the Korean Peninsula to prepare for a potential war with North Korea, while Pyongyang reportedly plans new missiles tests.

    As of Friday afternoon, the USS Ronald Reagan, with nearly 80 aircraft on board, was in the South China Sea on its way to the shores of US ally South Korea.

    The two allies will conduct joint drills to detect, track, and intercept ballistic missiles, in addition to anti-submarine warfare training, Yonhap News agency reported, citing an unnamed South Korean official.

    The official said the military exercises will likely be held around October 20.

    The drills are to prepare the US military to defend its allies as well as maintain stability in the area, Rear Admiral Marc Dalton, commander of the USS Ronald Reagan’s strike group, told the South China Morning Post.

    Webmaster's Commentary: 

    "...maintain stability", MY ASTROLABE!!

    Kim Jung Un is many things; but stupid is not one of them.

    He will see this precisely for what it is; an hostile threat to his government, perhaps leading to a military assault against the country.

    These exercises are supposed to start 20 October one week from this Friday; but one thing I have not been able to find, on any blog, is an end date to these exercizes, which is pretty unusual, and might well be telling in the context of what this exercize is actually engineered to do.

    So I have to speculate; is this exercize to be open ended, and perhaps wind up the "sacrificial lamb" to make it look as though North Korea fired the first shot, even if that first shot may well be a false flag?!?

    False flags have been tools of US Statescraft for some time now; so I frankly would not bet against it, were I a betting woman.

    Two weeks in Israel for a crash course in Homeland Security.

    Israel has become a laboratory for the development of techniques of repression directed against civilians in urban areas.

    Webmaster's Commentary:

    Women Against Military Madness, a Partner of ICAN, the 2017 Nobel Peace Prize Winner

    Twin Cities-based Women Against Military Madness (WAMM) is honored to be one of 25 U.S. organizations that are partners in the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN), which was awarded the 2017 Nobel Peace Prize on October 6. (There are 456 partner groups in ICAN in 101 countries around the world working to abolish nuclear weapons). ICAN was given the award for its international advocacy in helping to bring about the historic UN Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons.

    In its Nobel acceptance speech, ICAN credited grassroots participation of activists like those in WAMM with recognition of “the tireless efforts of many millions of campaigners and concerned citizens worldwide who, ever since the dawn of the atomic age, have loudly protested nuclear weapons…By harnessing the power of the people, we have worked to bring an end to the most destructive weapons ever created — the only weapon that poses an existential threat to all humanity.”

    Trump sends lieutenants to Pakistan with tough message

    President Donald Trump will dispatch his top diplomatic and military advisors to Pakistan in the coming weeks, turning up the heat on a nuclear-armed ally accused of harboring terror groups.

    Weeks after Trump angrily accused Islamabad of providing safe haven to "agents of chaos," Secretary of State Rex Tillerson plans to depart for Pakistan late this month.

    He will be followed by Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis, according to US and Pakistani sources.

    The one-two punch is designed to drill home Trump's message that Pakistani state support for jihadist groups has to end, according to officials briefed on the visits.

    Washington has long been frustrated by Pakistan's willingness to offer cross-border safe havens to Taliban factions and armed Islamist groups fighting US troops and their Afghan allies.

    Webmaster's Commentary: 

    The level of corruption in both the Pakistani military and civilian leadership is making for absolute chaos in the US foreign policy decisions regarding that country.

    Historically, "regime changes" have come from within the Pakistani military.

    The least disruptive thing the US government could do here right now, is to nurture some of the leadership in the Pakistani military who are Western-centric, and see what tools they could give them to ascend to a position of power and influence over governmental decisions, like not providing safe havens for the Taliban or armed Islamist groups, if in fact these charges are true.

    But the Pakistani economy is on the ascendent right now In what has become a major victory for the Pakistani economy, U.S.-based Morgan Stanley Capital International (MSCI) reclassified Pakistan as an emerging market after categorizing it among frontier markets for the past nine years.

    As the benchmark KSE-100 index skyrocketed 400 points to reach 52,700 level at the open earlier this week, a new all-time high, the MSCI upgraded the Pakistan Stock Exchange (PSX) to Emerging Market status. That paved the way for foreign investors that track the index and have between $1.4 trillion and $1.7 trillion available.Pakistan Economy CPEC

    The most important thing which needs to come from this, is to benefit all Pakistanis economically, with greater participation in the country's economic growth, so that turning to radicalism will not be so attractive as it might have been in the past.

    Cholera death toll rises to 2,151 in war-torn Yemen: WHO

    The death toll of the Cholera epidemic in war-ravaged Yemen has risen to 2,151 since it broke out in late April, the World Health Organization (WHO) said Saturday.
    A total of 800,626 people from 22 provinces out of total 23 have been infected, WHO said in a statement distributed to the local media.
    The death toll has increased by 24 comparing with the WHO report a week ago, while the suspected cases have risen by 33,102.
    Most of the deaths were reported from the northern province of Hajjah, while most of the infected cases were reported from the northwestern port province of Hodeidah on the coast of the Red Sea, both under control of Shiite Houthi rebels.
    Last week, the International Committee of the Red Cross expected the epidemic to hit one million by the end of the year.

    Webmaster's Commentary: 

    We cannot tell whether this cholera was weaponised; it has, historically been done before.

    Cholera has been weaponised

    And can anyone tell me, please, where Prince Salman's alleged contribution to the UN to combat cholera in Yemen actually went?!? Because if the rate of infection is this high, it is obvious that the aid never actually got to Yemen.

    And here is why, reported at WRH in June of this year:

    UN Aid Chief slams Saudis Blocking Yemen Aid

    President Trump and The Butcher of Yemen, AKA Prince Salmon, ought to be completely proud of themselves for the continuing growth in the spread of cholera in Yemen; they both adore big numbers!!

    U.S. ambassador’s adviser ran 'dark money' nonprofit that donated $1m to right-wing Israeli group

    Rabbi Aryeh Lightstone has been working for U.S. Ambassador to Israel David Friedman for several months, but previously worked at Shining City, which gave millions of shekels to Im Tirzu from unknown sources.

    U.S. Ambassador to Israel David Friedman’s senior adviser is a rabbi who previously headed a U.S.-based nonprofit that donated over $1 million to the controversial Israeli right-wing organization Im Tirtzu in 2015.

    An embassy spokesperson confirmed to Haaretz that Orthodox Rabbi Aryeh Lightstone is now serving as a senior adviser to Friedman at the U.S. Embassy in Tel Aviv.

    Lightstone “has spent the past two decades professionally in the startup, real estate and not for profit worlds,” the spokesperson said, adding, “He is a prolific fundraiser for a myriad of philanthropic, political and issue-based advocacy organizations.”

    Webmaster's Commentary: 

    So, our Ambassador to Israel's "Ambassador whisperer" has a view of Palestinian rights which dismisses them as utterly "non-existent"; no wonder our US policy toward Israel is so lopsidedly in favor of Israeli serial genocide against Palestinians, and the many forms this takes, such as jailing and torturing children to get "confessions" against other Palestinians; the outright assassinations of Palestinian kids; the full-frontal barbarity of Israel in preventing desperately ill Palestinians from seeking treatment outside where they live; and the brisk confiscation of lands from Palestinian families in the West Bank and East Jerusalem.

    Marvel drops Northrop Grumman tie-in after Comic Con fan rebellion

    The Marvel comic company dropped a partnership with the defense industry giant Northrop Grumman and canceled a launch event scheduled for New York Comic Con on Saturday, after plans for a special series featuring branded superheroes alongside the legendary Avengers characters met with fierce opposition.

    Some fans had planned to protest at the Comic Con event, after Marvel announced via social media that it would launch the limited edition series at its booth at the Jacob K Javits Conference Center on the western side of Manhattan. On Saturday, many attendees welcomed the cancellations.

    “I think it was a terrible idea to begin with to try to merge these two worlds,” said Nick Greer from Groton, Connecticut, who was dressed as the Marvel character Nick Fury. “They saw the backlash and they shut it down.”

    Webmaster's Commentary: 

    Marvel, you did the absolutely morally correct thing here; colluding with an American Merchant of Death, which makes weapons which kill and maim, many times completely innocent victims (like the deaths of Yemeni infants and, courtesy of Saudi air strikes) is a form of "normalizing" war and destruction for younger, impressionable kids, many of whom make up the fan base for Marvel films and merchandising.

    I am very glad you rethought this: Good on ya!! :-)

    US Bomb Tests and Bidding Wars Herald New (Unlawful) $1.5 Trillion Nuclear Weapons Complex

    While much of the world pursues the abolition of nuclear weapons – embraced by the adoption July 7 by 122 nations of the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons – the militarized Trump White House is pursuing plans for a trillion-dollar rebuild of the entire US nuclear weapons complex. The enormous, extravagant program is designed to produce 80 new nuclear warheads every year, including three new warhead types, a new $20 billion nuclear-armed Long Range Standoff (LRSO) weapon, a new $12 billion B61 nuclear gravity bomb, a new fleet of nuclear-armed submarines, and a new $100 billion intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) system.

    Webmaster's Commentary: 

    This last paragraph's characterisation of the Trump administration concerns me very deeply.

    As a Christian Pacifist Activist, I am constantly, peacefully and rationally, exhorting my government to resolve its geopolitical issues with moral, hard-won negotiations rather than bombs and bullets.

    It unfortunately feels to me, and to many peole who think the way I do, that I am absolutely on the right side of an absolutely losing proposition with Trump's administration.

    I am thinking, very intensely now, about the speculation positied by Albert Einstein, when he said "“I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones.”, indicating that the world would be brought back to the stone age, courtesy of a massive nuclear exchange.

    And with all the nuclear armed countries at this point in this world's history, including India; Pakistan; UK; the US; China; Russia; and Israel, his comments may well prove prophetic here.

    Plague is Starting in Africa

    Panic has ensued in Madagascar where a recent outbreak of the plague has claimed the lives of at least 24 people. Prime Minister Olivier Mahafaly Solonandrasana has announced a ban on all public gatherings and demonstrations in effect until the outbreak can be contained.
    The plague is a deadly disease caused by the Yersinia pestis bacteria. It usually begins as the bubonic plague, which is spread from small mammals (such as rats) and fleas to humans. If detected early, the bubonic plague can generally be treated and controlled with antibiotics and proper environmental measures. However, half of all reported cases in Madagascar are the pneumonic plague –- the deadliest form of the disease.

    The pneumonic plague is transmitted person to person. Since this form of the plague is airborne, it spreads extremely rapidly and can have catastrophic consequences. Those who contract the pneumonic plague must be treated immediately as it can be fatal within less than 24 hours of onset.

    Webmaster's Commentary: 

    If you have been to, or from, Madagascar recently, please go to your local health provider and get tested, and possibly pre-emptively treated.

    If you have even been thinking about going to Madagascar for any reason, please don't, until this has been irradicated.

    Russia Threatens Retaliatory Restrictions on US Media Outlets

    Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova is warning that Russia is considering applying restrictions to certain US media outlets in retaliation for recent US measures taken against Russia’s RT news channel.

    Last month, the US Justice Department ordered RT to register as a “foreign agent,” which requires them to make a massive number of disclosures. The Foreign Agent Registration Act was meant to target foreign lobbyists and politicians, and had virtually never been used against journalists before.

    US lawmakers had been hyping RT as a “propaganda” network, complaining about their narrative being dissimilar on key issues from domestic US media. Yet other nations’ media across the world often differs with US media priorities, and the moves against RT are unheard of.

    Webmaster's Commentary: 

    I link to the English-edition of rt.com and sputniknews.com on a nearly daily basis.

    I find the reporting and analysis of world events in these blogs rather calm; most generally level-headed, and non-warmongering, which one can certainly not say about the presstitutes and whorespondents in the corporate media of this country, faithfully regurgitating government propaganda.

    Warning: Legal Racket Robs Elderly of Property and Rights

    There is a racket in Nevada that is robbing the elderly not only of their property but of their rights.

    People are being deemed unfit to look after themselves for superficial or trumped up reasons. Then, their guardianship is being handed over to private companies. Often these elderly folks are removed from their homes and placed into care facilities.

    Their possessions are sold ostensibly so that there is enough money for them to be taken care of by their guardian. But their liquidated assets are used to fund the guardian’s fees, sometimes hundreds of dollars for a conversation.

    It is all done under the pretense of protecting them.

    New Rule: Residents In Nine States Will Need Passports For Domestic Flights in 2018

    When traveling, it's best to plan ahead whenever you can. For example, you may have thought you don't need a passport because you don't travel outside the United States. But for residents of nine states, that will change at the beginning of 2018 for any commercial flight, whether international or domestic.

    As reported by Travel and Leisure, nine states will no longer allow travelers to board an airplane with just their state issued driver’s licenses as of January 22, 2018. To get past TSA security checkpoints, another form of identification will be required: passport, permanent resident card/green card or a military ID.

    Britain 'draws up battle plan for war with North Korea'

    Britain is reportedly preparing for the possibility of war breaking out with North Korea as concerns rise that another provocative missile test could trigger a military response by the US.

    North Korea is being closely watched amid fears it could launch another long-range missile test on Tuesday to mark the anniversary of the founding of its ruling party.

    Bellicose rhetoric from Donald Trump has heightened tensions in the region in recent months, prompting British officials to draw up military plans for a response to a break out of hostilities, it was reported.

    The possible move to deploy it ahead of schedule drew comparisons with the start of the Falklands War.

    "In the Falklands we had to react to an event and HMS Illustrious was accelerated to respond," a Navy source told the Mail.

    "This was a reaction to protect British territory, however. In this case [North Korea], the UK would be part of a united global coalition. We would see what support we could give."

    Webmaster's Commentary: 

    Note that none of this is actually sourced, and even the writers of this article wanted to distance themselves from responsibility for having written it, by embracing anonimity, and only identifying them as "Telegraph Reporters".

    I frankly think, at this point, that this was simply a "trial balloon" on the part of the British Government, to see and gague British public reaction to such a move, if, in fact, such plans are being contemplated at this time.

    The Chinese Dream in Peril: Xi Jinping and the Korean Crisis

    With tensions escalating rapidly again on the Korean peninsula, the attention of the world invariably has returned to the question of whether or not the solution to the crisis lies in Beijing. After months of continuing missile tests by North Korea despite sanctions and global condemnation, Kim Jong-un’s regime claims to have tested a hydrogen bomb and once again launched an intercontinental ballistic missile over Japan. North Korea’s march toward wielding a nuclear arsenal against its neighbors and far off enemies, like the United States, is nearing completion. For Xi Jinping and the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), North Korea’s obstinate drive toward becoming a nuclear force has dealt Beijing a critical challenge at a moment when the party would prefer to focus on other matters seen as as essential to its rise as a regional and world power.

    SINCE 2016, COPS HAVE KILLED 3 TIMES AS MANY CITIZENS THAN 4 DECADES OF MASS SHOOTINGS COMBINED

    As Hillary Clinton calls for repealing the second amendment, this behind the scenes deep state puppet master epitomizes what those in favor of gun control really want — only the government can have guns.

    Every time a lunatic, who is usually on some form mind-altering pharmaceutical, goes on a shooting rampage, the do-gooders in Washington, with the aid of their citizen flocks, take to the TV and the internet to call for disarming the American people.

    The total number of people killed by police in America this year, as of Oct 7, 2017, is 926. This number is set to increase by one, on average, every 8 hours.

    READ MORE: Internet Activist Recovers Deleted Video of Police Assault, This is How We Win!
    We are comparing a time period of 35 years, to 10 months and the ratio is 1.3 to 1, citizens killed by cops vs. citizens killed in mass shootings. That is a massive difference.

    Webmaster's Commentary: 

    IF, in fact, these statistics are true, we need, natonally, to overhaul how police are doing their jobs, so that far fewer citizens get maimed or killed by them.

    FACEBOOK SECURITY CHIEF LASHES OUT: "CENSORSHIP IS EASY IF YOU DON'T WORRY ABOUT BECOMING THE MINISTRY OF TRUTH"

    In a furious tweetstorm this weekend, Facebook's Chief Security Officer warned interfering desperate politicians and triggered letfists that the fake news problem is more complicated and dangerous to solve than the public thinks.

    As a reminder, we noted that Alex Stamos was seemingly pressured into 'finding' Russian evidence after Senator Mark Warner paid the social media company a visit -

    Technicians then searched for “indicators” that would link those ads to Russia. To narrow down the search further, Facebook zeroed in on a Russian entity known as the Internet Research Agency, which had been publicly identified as a troll farm.

    “They worked backwards,” a U.S. official said of the process at Facebook.

    The breakthrough moment came just days after a Facebook spokesman on July 20 told CNN that “we have seen no evidence that Russian actors bought ads on Facebook in connection with the election.”

    Webmaster's Commentary: 

    Alex Stamos, a word, please; by using algorithms which push down search results which are not to the liking of those in the Bowels of Power in the occupied, Unhinged, Surveilled States of Amerika, Facebood has, indeed, become its "Minstry of Truth."

    The FBI’s Hunt for Two Missing Piglets Reveals the Federal Cover-Up of Barbaric Factory Farms

    This article includes graphic images some readers may find disturbing.

    FBI AGENTS ARE devoting substantial resources to a multistate hunt for two baby piglets that the bureau believes are named Lucy and Ethel. The two piglets were removed over the summer from the Circle Four Farm in Utah by animal rights activists who had entered the Smithfield Foods-owned factory farm to film the brutal, torturous conditions in which the pigs are bred in order to be slaughtered.

    Webmaster's Commentary: 

    We need to have a national conversation about the humane raising of animals we eat, and even some big box outlets are getting the message that inhumane raising of food animals is not what consumers want.

    Remember Sinclair Lewis' masterwork "The Jungle", about the horrific state of a meat packing plant, which spurred Congress to create some legislation regarding standards?!?

    We seem to be right back to square one, with these horrific conditions witnessed at Springfield.

    Massive increase in antimicrobials use in animals to lead to widespread drug resistance in humans
    Published 9 October 2017Share|
    The amount of antimicrobials given to animals destined for human consumption is expected to rise by a staggering 52 percent and reach 200,000 tons by 2030 unless policies are implemented to limit their use, according to new research. represent an alarming revision from already pessimistic estimates made in 2010, pushed up mostly by recent reports of high antimicrobial use in animals in China.

    Webmaster's Commentary: 

    At least for the moment, the answers are simple for an educated consumerm who understands the risks here.

    Demand from the managers of the stores where you shop that there should be a selection of non-gmo/non-antibiotic treated meat to choose from; otherwise, you will shop elsewhere.

    Las Vegas Shooter Stephen Paddock Alive? Spotted at a Atlantic City Casino on Friday Night ?

    If this is accurate, will blow the lid off the Las Vegas shooting (false flag)!

    FOREIGN AFFAIRS MAG ADVANCES DOMESTIC TERRORISM TO REMOVE ALTERNATIVE MEDIA

    Is Foreign Affairs magazine advancing “domestic terrorism” because it could help remove alternative media, and even jail editors and writers or worse. The recent article is entitled “Should We Treat Domestic Terrorists the Way We Treat ISIS? What Works—and What Doesn't.” It begins as follows:

    The mass shooting in Las Vegas on Sunday night has again raised fears about terrorism. There’s much we don’t yet know. The Islamic State (ISIS) has claimed the attack, but the FBI claims that there is no international terrorism link. The attacker, Stephen Paddock, was 64 years old and white, fitting a stereotype of a right-wing terrorist more than a jihadist one. And he may just be a crazy nut. But regardless of Paddock’s particular pathology, the situation highlights how the United States treats similar forms of violence differently depending on the nature of the perpetrator.

    Webmaster's Commentary: 

    When any government criminalises and suppresses the statement of facts, that government is sliding down a very slippery slope into fascism.

    Those in the Deep State of the Occupied Unhinged Surveilled States of Amerika, have many agendas, and those agendas are nearly almost, ultimately, economic in nature. And the Deep State is certainly not above the employment of terrorism, both domestically, and internationally, to achieve those agendas. These are then partnered with narratives, which are engineered to be perceived as "something that could plausibly be real" to the average American citizen, then regurgitated by their faithful presstitutes as though these narratives were absolute gospel, when in, fact, these narratives turn out to be absolute, outright lies.

    Narrative/Lie: 9/11 was created by foreign terrorists in New York. Reality:9/11 was an Inside Job, aided and abetted by Mossad Intelligence

    Narrative/Lie: Afghanistan harbored the terrorist Bin Laden, and refused to give him up to Americans post 9/11, so the country had to be invaded. Reality: the US government wanted the rights to the Afghani pipelines, but the Taliban government couldn't produce the "unity government" with which to support the pipelines, so the US government invaded.

    When the Bush administration came to power, it decided to give the Taliban one last chance. During a four-day meeting in Berlin in July 2001, representatives of the Bush administration insisted that the Taliban must create a government of “national unity” by sharing power with factions friendly to the United States. The US representatives reportedly said: “Either you accept our offer of a carpet of gold, or we bury you under a carpet of bombs.”

    After the Taliban refused this offer, US officials told a former Pakistani foreign secretary that “military action against Afghanistan would go ahead . . . before the snows started falling in Afghanistan, by the middle of October at the latest.”18 And, indeed, given the fact that the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon occurred when they did, the US military was able to mobilize to begin its attack on Afghanistan by October 7

    Narrative/Lie: Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction, which is why the US government was compelled to invade it. Reality: Hussein never had weapons of mass destruction. Iraq's Saddam Hussein never had weapons of mass destructionThe invasion was about controlling Iraq's oil, and insuring that Iraq's oil was only sold in US dollars; and that is precisely the state of affairs in Iraq today, no matter the costs in blood and money.

    Narrative/Lie: Libya's Moamar Ghadaffi was oppressing his own people, therefore his government had to be overthrown. Reality: Hillary emails confirm US and NATO destroyed Libya over gold-backed currency

    This brings us to Russia, and the current smear campaign of demonization against it. Smear campaigns (read: narratives to forward agendas) are frequently the preludes to wars.

    Please understand that there are those in the bowels of power in the Occupied, Unhinged, Surveilled States of America who want to see this country nuke both Russia and China, to prevent the continued rise of the ruble and yuan against the US dollar.

    As reported by Dr. Paul Craig Roberts back in April of this year:

    Washington plans to Nuke Russia and China

    On Thursday, the Wall Street Jerks put out an article about Russia's allegedly having hacked the NSA.

    Russian Hackers Roportedly Stole NSA Data But in reading the article, there was no sourcing; no who/what/where/how/and why to be found. Just another accusation with which to demonize Russia, with utterly no provable foundation in fact.

    As a Christian pacifist activist, who is constantly exhorting her government to resolve its geopolitical differences with moral, hard-won negotiations, I will go on record here as not being pro-Russian; I am pro my government not being "stuck on stupid" in resolving its issues with other countries only through wars.

    That being said, I am respectfully asking those in the Bowels of Power in this country to sit back, take a deep breath, (maybe swallowing some calcium magnesium with some organic juice), and take stock of just how close the precipice of World War III you are taking the American people.

    North Korea?!? More war, potentially with China. Syria?!? More combat against Russian and Syrian military here, risking war with Russia. Iran?!? A military answer here would most likely lead to Russian intervention, meaning war with Russia.

    War with Russia and/or China would be the most ham-fistedly, pig-headedly stupid thing this government could do right now, and that's a fact. Unfortunately, this is absolutely no guarantee that this government won't do just that, and this concerns and alarms me greatly.

    Trump: I’ll give peace ‘a shot’ before moving US embassy to Jerusalem

    President Trump said he would like to attempt to establish peace between the Israel and Palestine before moving the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

    “I want to give that a shot before I even think about moving the embassy to Jerusalem,” Trump told former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R) on the Trinity Broadcasting Network's "Huckabee" in an interview that aired on Saturday.

    “If we can make peace between the Palestinians and Israel, I think it’ll lead to ultimately peace in the Middle East, which has to happen,” he continued.
    Trump renewed a waiver last August to keep the U.S. embassy in Tel Aviv temporarily, despite promising on the 2016 campaign trail that he would move it to Jerusalem.

    The location of the embassy has always been a point of contention between the Israelis and the Palestinians.

    Israelis see Jerusalem as its capital, however Palestinian want East Jerusalem to be the capital of what they hope will be a future, independent state.

    Webmaster's Commentary: 

    I am having a double Picard face-palm, upon reading this.

    So Mr. President, a word, please.

    There are times, for such a bright man, when your naivete just astounds me to the point of utter and complete amazement.

    What your BFF, Netanyahu, and Tel Aviv, want, is not peace with the Palestinians, but territory, and by any means necessary; and that, sir, is why since the country's founding in 1948, they have never declared the extent of their borders.

    The Zionist vision for Israel, called Eratz Israel, in Hebrew, has been completely consistent, and that is a country which extends from the Nile to the Euphates. This is how it looks on a map:

    Map: Eretz Israel

    Notice how many bits of neighboring countries whose borders are obliterated by such an extensive expansion of Israel.

    Mr. President, please: a good national leader picks fights he understands he can win; a peace deal between Israel and the Palestinians is not one of them, as the goals here are completely different. Even an "Art of the Deal" person, like yourself, cannot fix this.

    Palestinians have, for decades, wanted their own country, with full UN recognition, and to simply live peacefully.

    Unfortunately, however, Israel's "Final Solution" for their "Palestinian problem" is comprised of the elements of serial genocide; a brisk annexation of Palestinian homes and lands in the West Bank, and East Jerusalem, displacing Palestinians who had lived on those places for generations; indefinite imprisonment of Palestinian prisoners without charge; the burning of Palestinian crops; and the developing of Jewish-only settlements which prevent a contiguous state of Palestine to exist.

    Facebook Blocks Chinese Billionaire Who Tells Tales of Corruption

    A Chinese billionaire living in virtual exile in New York, Guo Wengui has riled China’s leaders with his sometimes outlandish tales of deep corruption among family members of top Communist Party officials.

    On Saturday, his tales proved too much for one of his favorite platforms for broadcasting those accusations: Facebook.

    The social media network said it had blocked a profile under Mr. Guo’s name and taken down another page associated with him. Facebook said the content on both pages had included someone else’s personal identifiable information, which violates its terms of service.

    Facebook investigated the accounts after receiving a complaint, according to a spokeswoman.

    Over 100,000 People Evacuated in Moscow Over False Bomb Explosion Warnings

    A wave of anonymous calls over bomb threats in education facilities, shopping centers and administrative buildings has led to a mass evacuation in Moscow on Friday.

    More than 100,000 people were evacuated in the Russian capital over false warnings of explosive devices.

    The warnings had not been confirmed, but the police had to evacuate Moscow residents due to security reasons.

    "More than 130 reports of explosion threats have been received from law enforcement agencies since the beginning of the day, about 100,000 people have been evacuated from all buildings," a source said on condition of anonymity.

    Webmaster's Commentary: 

    This appears to be highly coordinated; but by whom, and for what purpose?!? The destabilization of Russia, with a thought toward "regime change" in Moscow?!?

    Wars can be psycological, as well as physical. If 100,000 people are evacuated on false threats of bombings, it will be very hard for those people to really trust that the Russian government can actually protect them in a real emergency.

    Was this the purpose?!? To cause the Russian people to lose trust in their government, and very specifically, Vladimir Putin?!? Only time will tell.

    The U.S. Justice System Must Focus On Elite Criminality

    Two very important articles published in recent days serve to once again highlight America’s metastasizing elite criminality problem. A problem which our justice system simply refuses to address.

    This corrupt two-tier justice system is something I’ve been focused on from the very beginning of my writings, and I continue to see it as a civilization-level threat for this country if not aggressively addressed and confronted in the very near future.

    The two articles in question focus on different aspects of untouchable elite culture in America.

    The Six ‘Secret’ Tactics of Empire

    The 6 ‘secret’ tactics of empire are strategies of change used by governments, usually covertly, to attain political or military ends through means not normally acceptable to the populace as a whole. The strategies are as follows:

    1. False Flag Attacks
    2. Coercive Engineered Migration
    3. Colour Revolutions
    4. Humanitarian Intervention
    5. Proxy Armies
    6. Fake News

    The relationship of the state or a political force to the various strategies depends on the political aim. Sometimes there is a direct and openly admitted relationship to the strategy and sometimes it is fervently denied. The outcome of any such strategy is never guaranteed and, indeed, may even have the opposite effect to that intended.

    This makes the strategies of change high-risk ventures for the participants as well as those for whom the strategy is hoped to benefit. In some cases these strategies of change seem to be perceived as the only way to change a situation, or at least the most expedient.

    Webmaster's Commentary: 

    As you are deconstructing current events through the eyes, and logic, of an intelligent human being, please remember these tools, and how they are used in American geopolitics to nurture an agenda.

    US Intelligence Unit Accused Of Illegally Spying On Americans’ Financial Records

    The intelligence division at the Treasury Department has repeatedly and systematically violated domestic surveillance laws by snooping on the private financial records of US citizens and companies, according to government sources.

    Over the past year, at least a dozen employees in another branch of the Treasury Department, the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network, have warned officials and Congress that US citizens’ and residents’ banking and financial data has been illegally searched and stored. And the breach, some sources said, extended to other intelligence agencies, such as the National Security Agency, whose officers used the Treasury’s intelligence division as an illegal back door to gain access to American citizens’ financial records. The NSA said that any allegations that it “is operating outside of its authorities and knowingly violating U.S. persons’ privacy and civil liberties is categorically false.”

    Webmaster's Commentary: 

    Conducting illegal searches is standard operating procedure for all Federal agencies; then, they lie about it, attempting to cover it up.

    JOHN KIRIAKOU, CIA OFFICER IN TORTURE LEAK CASE, INJURED IN SERIOUS TRAFFIC ACCIDENT

    Updated | John Kiriakou, a prominent ex-CIA officer who was among the first to reveal the agency’s torture program, was seriously injured in a scooter accident earlier this week in Washington, D.C.

    Kiriakou says he suffered six broken ribs, a broken clavicle and a fractured vertebrae in an accident Tuesday night en route to a bookstore in northwest D.C. "I had a port installed in my neck and a second port installed in my back to take targeted painkillers,” he wrote on his Facebook page. "Thank God I was wearing a helmet.”

    Kiriakou was driving his Vespa in northwest Washington Tuesday night when a car stopped suddenly in front of him. He plowed into the vehicle and was taken by ambulance to George Washington University Hospital, Radack says.

    The Washington Metropolitan Police Department said it had no record of the incident and referred inquiries to the U.S. Park Police, which also patrols the area. The Park Police could not be reached for comment in time for publication.

    Webmaster's Commentary: 

    This was most likely a botched assassination attempt; why else did Washington Metro Police claim they did not have any information on it, and the Park Police refused to comment?!?

    John, along with that helmet, please get your Kevlar undies on; don't get "depressed", and don't ride in small aircraft, for heaven's sake!!

    When the Government Declared War on the First Amendment

    It all started with President Woodrow Wilson. On April 2, 1917, Wilson urged the nation into battle against Germany in order to "make the world safe for democracy." But the president also set his sights on certain enemies located much closer to home. "Millions of men and women of German birth and native sympathy...live among us," Wilson observed. "If there should be disloyalty, it will be dealt with with a firm hand of repression."

    That firm hand came in the form of the Espionage Act, which Congress passed in June 1917 and Wilson eagerly signed into law. Among other things, the act made it illegal to "convey information with intent to interfere with the operation or success of the armed forces of the United States or to promote the success of its enemies." That sweeping language effectively criminalized most forms of anti-war speech. If convicted of obstructing the war effort, the guilty party faced up to $10,000 in fines and up to 20 years in prison.

    Webmaster's Commentary: 

    Should America be going to war with any of its "enemies du jour" in the 21st century, look for even more draconian repressions on freedom of speech, and the outright criminalisation of the right to speak logically and peacefully about Federal governmental decisions with which you may not agree.

    Jimmy Carter: What I’ve learned from North Korea’s leaders

    Over more than 20 years, I have spent many hours in discussions with top North Korean officials and private citizens during visits to Pyongyang and to the countryside. I found Kim Il Sung (their “Great Leader”), Kim Yong Nam, president of the Presidium of the Supreme People’s Assembly, and other leaders to be both completely rational and dedicated to the preservation of their regime.

    What the officials have always demanded is direct talks with the United States, leading to a permanent peace treaty to replace the still-prevailing 1953 cease-fire that has failed to end the Korean conflict. They want an end to sanctions, a guarantee that there will be no military attack on a peaceful North Korea, and eventual normal relations between their country and the international community.

    Webmaster's Commentary: 

    What President Carter is saying, is completely logical.

    But on this issue, President Trump has backed himself into a rather intense geopolitical corner, and it's going to be a hard one to get out of.

    All during his campaign, Trump swore that he would never allow North Korea to develop nuclear weapons; at this point, it is very likely that North Korea is either close to, or has developed, nuclear weapons.

    They are also developing missles which can fly a longer trajectory than ever before, and are coming close to staging accurately, which means that they can hit at what they are aiming.

    The following article is a very interesting history about a 72 year relationship between North Korea and the US government, and how the US broke its promises to North Korea, beginning in the Bush era:

    What is Really Behind North Korea's nuclear provocations.

    I absolutely agree with Preisident Carter, that what is desperately needed here, rather than bullets or bombs flying, is a quiet, good-faith conversation between the US; North Korea; South Korea; and Japan, to replace the armistice with an iron clad peace treaty, which guarantees open, unsanctioned trade; a guarantee of non-intervention by the US militarily; and the quid pro quo would be the cessation of North Korea's nuclear program.

    Unfortunately, however, President Trump has dug his own hole on this, and has stepped up the rhetoric, doubling down on threats aganst North Korea.

    And now with the coming US decertification of the P5+1 treaty, Kim Jung Un, and the world, will recognise that the US government is pathologically incapable of respecting its treaties, and keeping its geopolitical promises.

    I am concerned that shooting war is coming here, as completely ham-fistedly, pig-headedly stupid as the justification for that war might be.

    Chinese officials have stated that if the US military strikes the first blow, it will come to North Korea's defense; so from the American Military's perspective, it must appear that North Korea struck first.

    One can never predict exact timing on such an event, but the Radioactive USS Ronald Regan is steaming through the South China Seas, to dock in South Korea for war games, and on the 10th of October, comes a very important national holiday for North Korea.

    Kim Jong Un likes to pair national holidays with his rocket launches.

    I would therefore suggest that we might be looking at a rocket launch which (courtesy of a US false flag) might go horribly wrong, and hit an American asset, or ally, very hard.

    This, then, would be the "justification" for a US Alliance attack against North Korea, and the estimates for lives lost in such an operation, are staggering.

    Kaspersky Lab Denies WSJ Allegations of Hacking NSA

    Consistently at or near the top of security software maker rankings, Russian-based Kaspersky Lab continues to attract suspicion, based on little to no evidence, of being a “threat” to US national security.

    This week, the allegations came out of the Wall Street Journal, which claimed that an NSA contractor who ran Kaspersky antivirus on his computer was hacked, and immediately concluded that Kaspersky hacked him to get NSA data for the Russian government.

    Kaspersky founder Eugene Kaspersky mocked the claim as “like the script of a C movie.” He offered an alternate explanation for the data loss, that the NSA tools on the computer were correctly identified as new forms of malware by Kaspersky’s software.

    The supposition that being a security software company and Russia-based makes them tantamount to Russian spies has been enough of an excuse for US officials to increasingly demonize the company, despite the lack of real evidence of wrongdoing, let alone culpability.

    Webmaster's Commentary: 

    What the Wall Street Jerks' article provided was absolutely no tangible proof of their allegations whatsoever, and there was utterly no sourcing to these allegations.

    Mike and I have used Kaspersky security products, and consider them excellent; but of course, we're not the ones desperately trying to demonize Russia toward the goal of starting a shooting war against it!!

    Catalonia to Defy Spain, Declare Independence Next Week

    Spain’s Constitutional Court does not appear to be having much luck stopping an imminent Catalan declaration of independence. After ruling on Thursday that the regional parliament won’t be allowed to meet on Monday to declare independence, Catalonia looks to be doing an end around: they’re going to make the announcement Tuesday.

    Webmaster's Commentary: 

    And to all the Spanish politicians (and assorted Spanish royalty) who are whining and moaning about this Catalonian move, there is one very significant thing you need to remember.

    Spain is a signatory to the UN.

    And in the charter of the UN, the concept of peaceful self-determination is enshrined, and writ large.

    So what is Spain going to do when Catalonia declares its independence, withdraw from the UN?!?

    I think not.

    Trump Threatens as Iran Says Missile Program Not Up for Negotiation

    Following up on yesterday’s report that President Trump is going to decertify the P5+1 nuclear deal with Iran on the grounds it is “not in America’s interests,” he is stepping up threats against Iran, promising a “broad strategy” to punish Iran for all of its bad behavior.

    Decertification would lead to a vote in Congress, which Trump appears to believe will lead to the US withdrawing from the P5+1. This isn’t going to take place until next week, however,which has fueled speculation Iran might be coerced into making new concessions to placate him.

    Iran, however, says that this is not the case. Noting that they’re complying with the nuclear deal as it is, Iran has denied reports they’d be willing to negotiate on their conventional missile program, saying they believe demands for more concessions are a violation of the UN Security Council resolution on the nuclear deal.

    Webmaster's Commentary: 

    As I mentioned yesterday, a US decertification of the P5+1 deal, would be the most ham-fistedly, pig-headedly stupid decision the Trump administration could make, at this point.

    Of course, with President Whisperer, Israel's Benyamin Netanyahu constantly cheerleading for "regime change" in Tehran, the purpose of the decertification is to leave the US open to attempt a regime change by force.

    I would like to strongly caution President Trump that Israel fully expects the Occupied, Unhinged, Surveilled States of Amerika to do this for him, but primarily at the costs of American blood and American money.

    And Mr. President, I would like to politely remind you that Russian diplomats and chief military officers have consistently stated, that if Iran is attacked, Russia will come to its aid miilitarily.

    Do you, sir, really want a war with Russia over regime change in Tehran?!?

    I would suggest, sir, that if Mattis, McMaster and Kelly are being painfully honest with you, they will urge extreme caution, and tell you to your face that this is one hell of a lousy option, no matter how much Netanyahu screams at you on the phone that you MUST do it, to destroy its existential enemy, Iran.

    I would also like to politely remind you, that Iran has not initiated a war in over 200 years.

    Saudis Reject UN Blacklisting Over Yemen Child Deaths

    Saudi Arabia is complaining on Friday after winding up on the UN blacklist for violence against children in warzones related to their attacks on Yemen. The report blamed the Saudi-led coalition in Yemen for at least 683 child casualties in 2016.

    Saudi officials complained their inclusion was “misleading,” but offered no evidence to the contrary. Saudi Ambassador Abdallah al-Mouallimi insists that Saudi warplanes exercise the “maximum degree of care.”

    Which is a claim that is unlikely to convince anybody. Since attacking Yemen in 2015, the Saudis have been implicated in a massive number of civilian deaths in airstrikes against populated areas. Repeated attacks against schools, oftentimes repeatedly hitting the same schools multiple times, underscores the risk children are under during the air war.

    Webmaster's Commentary: 

    To Saudi Prince Salman, the entire House of Saud, and Saudi Diplomats; your rebuttal has utterly zero basis in fact, and you know it.

    And Prince Salman, a word, please; I don't know how many honorific titles you carry, by your relationship to the House of Saud.

    However, there is one title which will follow you beyond the grave, and make you the most detested, reviled Saudi monarch of the 21st century in your country, and beyond: that of the Butcher of Yemen.

    And sir, the entire world knows; you have earned that title!!

    9/11 GAVE US THE POLICE STATE WITH THE “PATRIOT” ACT, AFTER VEGAS GET READY FOR “USA LIBERTY” ACT

    After 9/11, the United States government preyed on the fear felt by many Americans to justify the passage of the USA Patriot Act—a law that was supposed to prevent future terrorist attacks. Now, after the Las Vegas shooting, the government has another proposed law ready to go, and just as with the Patriot Act, it also infringes on Americans’ liberties, and does very little for their security.

    The USA Liberty Act is the latest trendy name for a law that would reauthorize Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA), which is set to expire on Dec. 31, 2017. According to the House Judiciary Committee, the act would preserve “the core purpose of Section 702: the collection of electronic communications by non-U.S. persons for use in our nation’s defense.”

    Webmaster's Commentary: 

    One cannot get away from the "convenience" of the timing of this horrific mass assassination and wounding, and the "rolling out" of this legislation; not one bit.

    I have long ago stopped believing in "coincidence", when the Occupied, Unhinged, Surveilled States of Amerika want to "sell" its citizenry on something.

    Whatever it is, in terms of legislation, it is generally crafted to squeeze more money, or more freedoms, out of us.

    2009-2015 THE USA HAD A LOWER ANNUAL DEATH RATE FROM ‘MASS SHOOTINGS’ THAN NORWAY, FRANCE, FINLAND, OR BELGIUM

    This is an amazing statistic and one that flies in the face of much of what one hears from the media these days.

    We prefer not to make purely cross-sectional comparisons, but this claim is simply not true. The data below looks at the period of time from the beginning of the Obama administration in January 2009 until the end of 2015. Mass public shootings – defined as four or more people killed in a public place, and not in the course of committing another crime, and not involving struggles over sovereignty.

    Webmaster's Commentary: 

    Translation: we are continually being lied to about gun violence, to further the agenda of Federal gun confiscation.

    U.S. approves possible $15 billion sale of THAAD missiles to Saudi Arabia

    The U.S. State Department has approved the possible sale of a THAAD anti-missile defense system to Saudi Arabia at an estimated cost of $15 billion, the Pentagon said on Friday, citing Iran among regional threats.

    The approval opens the way for Saudi Arabia to purchase 44 Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) launchers and 360 missiles, as well as fire control stations and radars.

    “This sale furthers U.S. national security and foreign policy interests, and supports the long-term security of Saudi Arabia and the Gulf region in the face of Iranian and other regional threats,” the Pentagon’s Defense Security Cooperation agency said in a statement.

    Webmaster's Commentary: 

    Of course, the Pentagon is keen to close this deal, and quickly, as Saudi Arabia's King just inked a deal with Russia for their fighter-killer s-400.

    Saudi Arabia agrees deal for Russian S400 missile defense systems

    The Pentagon clearly understands that it may well be the last US big weapons deal with Saudi Arabia for quite some time, due to the mediocracy, and extravagant costs, of US weapons systems, as opposed to huge strides in both Russian and Chinese weapons systems which come at significantly less expense than do their US competitors.

    And as to the alleged "Iranian threat"; Sec Def Mattis, a short, pop quiz, please; when, in the last 200 years, has Iran initiated a war?!?

    Sir, I hate to burst your bubble on this, but the short answer is, NEVER!!

    REVEALED: U.S. TESTED CARCINOGENIC CHEMICALS ON UNKNOWING CANADIAN CIVILIANS DURING THE COLD WAR

    The U.S. Army secretly tested carcinogenic chemicals on unknowing residents of Canada in Winnipeg and Alberta during the Cold War in testing linked to weaponry involving radioactive ingredients meant to attack the Soviet Union, according to classified documents revealed in a new book Behind the Fog: How the U.S. Cold War Radiological Weapons Program Exposed Innocent Americans by Lisa Martino-Taylor, an associate professor of sociology at St. Louis Community College.

    The incidents occurred between July 9, 1953 and Aug 1, 1953 when they sprayed six kilograms of zinc cadmium sulfide onto unsuspecting citizens of Winnipeg from U.S. Army planes. The Army then returned 11 years later in 1964 and repeated the experiments in other parts of Canada including Suffield, Alta. and Medicine Hat, Alta., according to Martino-Taylor, National Post reported.

    Webmaster's Commentary: 

    Apparently, neither the US nor Candian government gave a rat's anus about to what happend to the people exposed; they were "simply expendable" in the name of a scientific experiment.

    Paul Craig Roberts: Has The Israel Lobby Destroyed Americans’ First Amendment Rights?

    The Israel Lobby has shown its power over Americans’ perceptions and ability to exercise free speech via its influence in media, entertainment and ability to block university tenure appointments, such as those of Norman Finkelstein and Steven Salaita. Indeed, the power of the Israel Lobby is today so widely recognized and feared that editors, producers, and tenure committees anticipate the lobby’s objections in advance and avoid writers, subjects, and professors judged unacceptable to the lobby.>>>

    Holy Tasteless! New Batman Video Game Depicts Murdered Russian Diplomat’s Body

    The newest video game from developer Telltale Games’ series “Batman: The Enemy Within” features a photo of the corpse of Russian Ambassador to Turkey Andrei Karlov, who was assassinated in December 2016.

    Karlov, a veteran diplomat who at one point served as the director of the Russian Foreign Ministry's Department of Consular Affairs (which provides passport and visa services), was killed during a scheduled speech at an art exhibition celebrating Turkish-Russian friendship. He was shot in the back by Mevlüt Mert Alt?nta?, a Turkish police officer who yelled "Allahu Akbar" and "Do not forget Aleppo, do not forget Syria" before being gunned down himself by Turkish security forces.

    Footage and photos of Altintas standing over Karlov's body, shouting and brandishing his pistol, widely circulated online. One picture, taken by Hasam Kilic, seems to have found its way into an unexpected place: a crime scene being investigated by Batman in a video game.

    Webmaster's Commentary: 

    Military/intelligence assets work hand in hand with the video/computer game industry every day.

    So I have to wonder if the founders of this company, Dan Connors, Kevin Bruner and Troy Molander, are, perhaps, covert CIA/US military assets, who understand that if you are going to demonize a country (Let's say, for the sake of explanation, Russia) to your population, particularly to the young people who will be ultimately drafted to fight that country, you start with the young men, who are the primary players of computer games, to demonize that country which is ultimately going to be the recipient of an American military attack.

    This has been rather recently released, so I wonder about the timing of an actual war with Russia, vis a vis the release of this video game, and how the owners of Telltale bet on the release of this game to continue the demonization in which the corporate presstitutes are collaborating so cheerfully.

    “The Revolution Will Not Uphold the Constitution” – Hard-Left Black Lives Matter Agitators Disrupt ACLU Free Speech Event

    A group of hard-left agitators affiliated with the Black Lives Matter movement disrupted a free speech event put on by the American Civil Liberties Union at the College of William & Mary, rushing the stage and preventing the guest from even speaking while chanting Antifa like slogans about how bad the country is and the need to shut down free speech once and for all.

    The ACLU’s Claire Gastañaga was at the college to speak on the subject of “Students and the First Amendment” but shortly after taking the stage she was overrun with BLM protesters who made it clear they were there to do one thing – shut down free speech completely.

    As Reason Magazine reported, the disruption was livestreamed and documented a variety of different shocking statements made by the group that paint a clear picture of who the people on the hard-left really are as well as what they seem to be willing to do to achieve their goals.

    Webmaster's Commentary: 

    The "Hard Left" reeks with the aura of "entitledment".

    And I am very concerned about the coming "Antifa" protests which are supposed to start on 4 November, threatening to "take over" the US government and depose Trump and Pence.

    What their actions will most likely achieve, if people are foolish enough to believe that this kind of behavour will bring about the changes they seek, will be a suspension of the Constitution and Bill of Rights, and the imposition of martial law in this country; this is hardly a place any sane Ameericans want to be.

    Iran, Iraq, And Turkey Unite To Block Kurdish Oil Exports

    Iraq, Iran, and Turkey are taking a unified stance against Kurdistan’s oil sector after the region elected to seek independence from Baghdad in a referendum in September, according to a new report by Rudaw.

    “In the case of northern Iraq; Iran, Iraq and Turkey will form a tripartite mechanism and will decide on shutting down the oil,” Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said after a meeting with leaders from the other two nations on Thursday.

    A day before the vote, the Iraqi central government issued a statement calling on “neighboring countries and countries of the world” to stop buying crude oil directly from Kurdistan and only deal with Baghdad.

    Webmaster's Commentary: 

    How, practically, are Iran, Turkey, and Iraq going to do this, without literally blowing up the oil rigs?!?

    And please remember: Russia has just signed off on an independent deal with Kurdistan regarding its oil; these countries have better tread very softly on any Russian resolved to see an independent Kurdistan happen.

    Russian Hackers Win Again: John Kelly's Personal Cell Allegedly "Compromised" For Months

    Is John Kelly the latest victim of the now infamous, pesky, yet extremely elusive, 'Russian hackers' that cost Hillary Clinton the 2016 election and are slowly taking over the world? According to Politico, he just might be...

    White House officials believe that chief of staff John Kelly’s personal cellphone was compromised, potentially as long ago as December, according to three U.S. government officials.

    The discovery raises concerns that hackers or foreign governments may have had access to data on Kelly’s phone while he was secretary of Homeland Security and after he joined the West Wing.

    Tech support staff discovered the suspected breach after Kelly turned his phone in to White House tech support this summer complaining that it wasn’t working or updating software properly.

    Kelly told the staffers the phone hadn’t been working properly for months, according to the officials.

    Webmaster's Commentary: 

    OK, let's track the logic; Kelly's personal phone misbehaves for months, and he doesn't have the horse sense to get it checked when it originally stopped working the way it should have?!?

    And it is THIS guy who has the ear of the President of the United States?!?

    Be afraid, people; be very afraid!!

    North Korea Planning To Test Fire Missile Capable Of Reaching U.S. West Coast; Stocks Slide

    Is this the stormy weather that Donald Trump was referring to yesterday?

    Russian news agency Sputnik reports, that according to a Russian lawmaker, who has just returned from North Korea, Pyongyang is ready to test a missile capable of reaching the US western coast.

    "They are preparing for a new test of a longer-range missile. They even gave us mathematical calculations that they believe prove that their missile can hit the western coast of the United States," Morozov said.
    "In the near future, they are going to carry out, as far as we understand, yet another launch of a missile, but this time with a longer range," the lawmaker said, adding that the general mood in Pyongyang is "rather belligerent."

    Webmaster's Commentary: 

    IF, in fact, these reports are true, it may well push President Trump over the edge in terms of a pre-emptive attack against North Korea (which may well lead to China entering such a conflict on North Korea's side).

    And then, we have this ominous headline from rt.com today:

    US warship approaches Korean Peninsula for drills with South Korea But underneath that, the following text continues:

    "The USS Ronald Reagan aircraft carrier along with a guided-missile cruiser and a nuclear-powered submarine are on their way to the Korean Peninsula to prepare for a potential war with North Korea, while Pyongyang reportedly plans new missiles tests.

    As of Friday afternoon, the USS Ronald Reagan, with nearly 80 aircraft on board, was in the South China Sea on its way to the shores of US ally South Korea."

    I do not know how long it takes an aircraft carrier to transit from the South China Sea to South Korea; but my gut is telling me something wicked this way comes, and soon, between the US and NOKO.

    BLS Caught Fabricating Wage Data

    While it's not the first time we have observed the BLS manipulate data (the last time was in "This Is What Happens When The Bureau Of Labor Statistics Is Caught In A Lie"), never before had we actually caught the Bureau Of Labor Statistics openly fabricating data. Until now.

    As reported earlier today, in one of the most closely watched statistics in today's payrolls report, the BLS reported that the annual increase in Average Weekly Earnings was a whopping 2.9%, above the 2.5% expected, and above the 2.5% reported last month. On the surface this was a great number, as the 2.9% annual increase - whether distorted by hurricanes or not - was the highest since the financial crisis.

    California Can Now Jail People For Misusing Gender Pronouns

    California can now start jailing people that refuse to use the preferred gender pronouns of nursing home residents after Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown signed the bill Thursday.

    The law’s effect is limited to nursing homes and other long-term care facilities, but mandates that those who “willfully and repeatedly” refuse “to use a transgender resident’s preferred name or pronouns” can be slapped with a $1,000 fine and up to one year in prison, according to the California Heath and Safety code.

    Known as the “LGBT Senior Bill Of Rights,” the legislation also requires nursing homes and care facilities to allow residents to use the bathroom of their choice, regardless of biological sex. The bill’s author, state Sen. Scott Weiner, argues that religious views don’t hold weight in public areas.

    The U.S. Congress Is Trying to Give the F-35 a Pass for All Its Problems

    The $700-billion defense authorization bill for 2018 contains a number of provisions that are likely to increase the risk of cost overruns for the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter program and undermine the ability of Pentagon officials and Congress to assess the combat suitability of new weapon systems in the future.

    One of the central debates for the F-35 program is whether it will be more combat-capable than the systems it is replacing. The most controversial of these claims has been that the F-35 would be an acceptable close air support replacement for the A-10 — which even Air Force officials eventually backed away from.

    Webmaster's Commentary: 

    WOW, I wonder how much, per Congressional representative, did Lockheed Martin have to pay for the language in this Defense Authorization Bill?!?

    Venezuela raises possibility of Russian military help to counter US

    Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro on Wednesday raised the possibility of getting military support from Russia to boost its defensive capabilities after President Donald Trump threatened to use force against the South American nation.

    Speaking at an energy forum in Moscow, Maduro said his administration will discuss increased military cooperation with the Russian government during his visit this week.

    “I am sure, even if we do not ask, we will be given even more support to boost Venezuela’s defense capacity and sovereignty," Maduro said.

    Trump Will Declare Iran Nuclear Deal ‘Not in the National Interest’

    Officials familiar with the situation say that President Trump is intending to “decertify” the P5+1 nuclear deal with Iran ahead of the October 15 deadline. With no evidence Iran is violating the deal in any way, he is going to instead claim it is just “not in the national interest of the United States” to honor the deal’s terms.

    This has much the same effect as falsely claiming Iran to be in violation, as it would put the nuclear deal up for a vote in Congress. Though Congress has long expressed opposition to the deal, it’s likely to be controversial to cancel it years after its implementation for literally no reason.

    President Trump is to give a speech surrounding the matter, expected next Thursday, and will lay out a broad strategy of confronting Iran, trying to blame them for all Middle East instability and terrorism. This would both be aimed at justifying the decertification, and setting the stage for another flurry of sanctions and threats to attack Iran

    Webmaster's Commentary: 

    President Trump, a word, please: walking away from the P5+1 deal will probably go down as the most ham-fistedly, pig-headedly stupid decision ever to be made by your administration so far.

    To blame Iran for the instability in the Middle East, when it is the Occupied, Unhinged, Surveilled States of America which are generally responsible for creating the arc of instability (not to mention insanity) in the Middle East,moving Westward toward Russia, and Eastward toward China and Asia, appears, to most sane observers, to typify the behaviour here as that of the head of an empire which is on the desperate, utter brink of collapse.

    Iran, as you should know, has not started a war in over 200 year; the same can hardly be said for either Israel, or the US, unfortunately.

    IF you force the US to walk away from this deal, do you think that any leader of any country on the planet will believe that the US government can ever negotiate in good faith again?!? Mr. President, the short answer is, HELL, no!!

    Walking away from this deal will probably translate into Iran getting back into their nuclear weapons program, because, like North Korea's Kim Jung Un, President Rouhani will realize that the only way to avoid an outright invasion from the US is to have a credible deterrent against it.

    The P5+1 program is working; and the guys and gals at the IAEA have continued to certify, since the deal went into effect, that Iran is complying.

    And Mr. President, I need to ask: what country's "national interests" are "injured" by the US complying with the deal?!?

    You need to take a good, careful look at your key advisors, that unholy triumverate of "president whisperers" consisting of Kelly, Mattis, and Mc Master, who seem to believe that the only solutions to US geopolitical problem are more wars, and wars only; but there is a fourth, and we both know that is one Israeli Prime Minister, Benyamin Netanyahu.

    I feel compelled to strongly caution you that although Netanyahu and Tel Aviv have cheerled for regime change in Tehran for decades, they fully expect that outcome to be purchased primarily at the costs of American blood, and America money.

    Also, sir, there is that "6000 lb gorilla in the living room" snoozing on the Bosendorfer on the issue of an attack against Iran; the name of the 6000 lb Gorilla is Russia. Russian military and civilian politicians have sworn, consistently, that should Iran be attacked militarily, Russia will come to its aid.

    Mr. President, this country is broke; its military does not have the weaponry; the troop strength; the manufacturing; or the money to successfully engage militarily with the Russians in Iran.

    I therefore respectfully, and sincerely, ask you to reconsider this decertification; this decision will, unfortunately, most likely, lead this country into a world war.

    Why Big Oil Conquered The World corbettreport


    Published on Oct 6, 2017TRANSCRIPT AND MP3: http://www.corbettreport.com/bigoil

    The 20th century was the century of oil. From farm to fork, factory to freeway, there is no aspect of our modern life that has not been shaped by the oil industry. But as the "post-carbon" era of the 21st century comes into view, there are those who see this as the end of the oiligarchy. They couldn't be more wrong. This is the remarkable true story of the world that Big Oil is creating, and how they plan to bring it about.

    UN Blacklists Saudi Coalition for Killing Children in Yemen

    In keeping with a draft copy of the report leaked early this week, the annual UN blacklist for harming children in armed conflict has named the Saudi-led coalition in Yemen as a major violator of the rights of children, noting that their war efforts have killed or injured 683 Yemeni children in 2016, and bombed dozens of schools and hospitals.

    The report confirmed that Saudi actions “objectively led to” 683 child casualties, and 38 verified incidents, They listed al-Qaeda, ISIS, and the Shi’ite Houthi movement as well, though all had lower casualty counts.

    Saudi Arabia invaded Yemen in early 2015, with a coalition that includes Egypt, Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, Jordan, Senegal, Sudan, and the United States. US involvement has included targeting support for Saudi warplanes, in-air refueling for Saudi bombers, and naval participation in the blockade of Yemen.

    Webmaster's Commentary: 

    All the Saudis have to do is threaten to withdraw funding to the UN, and these accusations will simply melt away again.

    This blacklisting will do absolutely nothing to stop the continued Yemeni genocide by the Saudis.

    Oh, and BTW; the US participation in these activities makes the US complicit in war crimes in Yemen; how do you like being a citizens of a country committig war crimes in the Middle East with impunity?!?

    I do not, thank you very much.

    Netanyahu: Israel Won’t Accept Palestinian Unity Deal

    Speaking at a conference of the ruling Likud Party, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has ruled out accepting the Palestinian unity government, should one ultimately come into place as a result of ongoing negotiations among Palestinian factions.

    Netanyahu insisted that any Palestinian unity would necessarily come at the expense of Israel’s existence, and that he would not allow this. Other top Israeli officials also condemned the reconciliation talks, suggesting they amounted to the Abbas government “cozying up to a murderous terror organization.”

    Webmaster's Commentary: 

    This is just another stalling tactic to prevent meaningful peace negotiations from happening, which is why Netnayahu is refusing talks...again.

    And to characterise Fatah as "...A murderous, terroist organisation"?!?

    Forgive me, Mr. Prime Minister; I thought for a moment that you were talking about the IDF, and its slow motion genocide against Palestinian kids!

    Not that there have not been atrocities from the Palestinian side as well, and we understand this; however, that having been said, I would politely suggest that when Prime Minister Netanyahu characterises any group as "murderous", he may well want to think...before he makes such an accusation, as a blowback comparison to the IDF will be practically be inevitable, given their unrestrained geoncidal proclivities against the Palestinians.

    Israel seals off West Bank and Gaza as Sukkot begins: Eleven-day border closure hits some four million Palestinians as week-long Jewish holiday commences.

    Israeli authorities have sealed off the occupied West Bank and the already besieged Gaza Strip for 11 days, as Jewish celebrations for the Sukkot holiday commence.

    At midnight on Tuesday, all crossings to the West Bank and Gaza Strip were closed off to some four million Palestinians in the territories.

    Many of those affected by the move hold Israeli work permits and cross over to go to their jobs daily.

    Banned from entering Israel, they now stand to lose their livelihood for the next 10 days.

    But Kamal Haddad, a local official in Beit Iksa, a village northwest of Jerusalem, told Al Jazeera that workers in the area have already been denied entry into Israel and settlement construction sites for several days.

    "They [Israeli soldiers] roam around settlement construction sites in the West Bank and if they see anyone there, they immediately send them back to their villages," he said.

    Webmaster's Commentary: 

    Please remind me again, how Israel is allgedly, the "only democracy in the Middle East!"?!?

    But of course, what else could the world possibly expect from such a vilely apartheid, self-proclaimed theocracy with nuclear weapons, against their Palestinian captives?!?

    SAUDIS ROCK US ALLIANCE, SAY THEY’LL BUY RUSSIA’S TOP PLANE KILLER, S-400

    That rumble under your feet you sensed this morning was the earthquake caused by the decision of one of America’s closest allies, Saudis Arabia, to join Turkey in buying Russia’s vaunted S-400 surface to air missile system.

    The announcement carried extra diplomatic weight as Saudi King Salman was visiting Russia when the Saudis made the announcement.

    Former NATO and European Command leader, retired Adm. James Stavridis, called the sale “a step backwards in US foreign and defense policy.” Since World War II, when President Roosevelt agreed with King Faisal that we would guarantee Saudi sovereignty in return for access to their oil, the kingdom has been one of our closest allies, notwithstanding the 911 attacks led by Saudi citizens.

    Webmaster's Commentary: 

    Retired Adm. James Stavridis, a word, please.

    It is very simple; the Russian weapons systems work as advertised, as demonstrated by the incredible performance they have given in Syria; right now, American weaponry is in a state of utter shambles, courtesy of lousy engineering and huge cost overruns at the public's expense, which the US military and Federal government simply allow to continue, courtesy of overt and covert "contributions" to political campaigns, and other causes near and dear to various movers and shakers in the Bowels of Power in the government of the Occupied, Unhinged, Surveilled States of America.

    The entire culture of the weapons manufacturing industry has to change, and quickly, in order to fix this; otherwise, the US military will continue to be technologically gapped behind other weapons manufacturers in countries like Russia and China.

    And that snit about the Saudis and 9/11: 9/11 was an inside job, co-facilitated by Israeli intelligence.

    HomeNewsFBI must work undercover with ISIS, even during attacks, to climb group's ranks - criminal attorney

    Entrapment is never good, it is always harmful, and it is never a way to find the perpetrators of an attack because criminals are going to be able to carry this out, Jennifer Breedon, international criminal law attorney, told RT.

    The FBI is being sued by a victim of an ISIS-inspired attack in 2015, during a controversial 'Draw Muhammad' cartoon drawing contest in Texas. The lawsuit alleges the bureau may have been complicit in the terrorist incident by not acting upon early warnings signs.

    RT spoke with Jennifer Breedon, international criminal law attorney, for her take on the case.

    RT: What do you think about the Garland terror attack controversy?

    Webmaster's Commentary: 

    Why am I singularly unsurprised at this?!?

    The FBI has frequently demonstrated a completely callous disregard for human life, if their geopolitical objectives are achieved.

    PUTIN STRIKES AGAIN: RUSSIAN HACKERS REPORTEDLY STOLE NSA DATA ON CYBER DEFENSE

    Looks like Russian President Vladimir Putin is back at it.

    The Wall Street Journal reported Thursday that hackers working for the Russian government have stolen data describing how US intelligence agencies infiltrate foreign computer networks and how they defend against cyberattacks. The data was stolen after a National Security Agency contractor removed the highly classified material and put it on his home computer, according to WSJ’s anonymous sources.

    News of the hack, which hasn’t been exposed previously, explains the federal government’s abrupt crackdown on Moscow-based security firms Kaspersky Labs. As WSJ explains, the contractor may have been targeted after hackers identified the files thanks to the contractor’s use of a popular antivirus software created by Kaspersky.

    Webmaster's Commentary: 

    No sourcing?!?

    Since, please, did WSJ get so completely sloppy in their "alleged" reporting?!?

    And what moronic National Security Agency contractor would have been so completely stupid as to put sensitive material like that on their home computer?!?

    Is the major prerequisite necessary to working for the NSA complete, and abysmal technological stupidity?!?

    OK, WSJ: either source, and do what is supposed to be your job, or shut the flip up; this is simply more anonymous demonization of Russia, which we all understand is part of the prelude to a shooting war against it.

    And to your Editor in Chief, Gerard Baker, a word, please, sir; whatever compensation you are getting, overtly or covertly, from elements of the Deep State in this country, desperate to see this country at war with Russia (and China) to cut off the rise of the ruble and yuan in international trade, it cannot possibly be enough!!

    US HOMELAND SECURITY AGENTS ‘ACCEPTED BRIBES, PROSTITUTES FROM COLOMBIA CRIME LORDS’

    At least two Homeland Security agents took cash and prostitutes from Colombian crime lords in exchange for erasing their criminal records, according to the US Department of Justice (DOJ).

    In a story befit for the ages, the two agents, one named Christopher Ciccione and the other unnamed, enjoyed a lavish evening in Bogota with fine wine, a suitcase full of cash, a famous singer, prostitutes, and an army colonel–all in exchange for helping at least two major crime lords.

    Both agents reportedly worked for Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) in Miami, Florida.

    According to a Department of Justice indictment released last week, Special Agent Christopher Ciccione worked through a Colombian intermediary, Juan Velasco, to organize a bribery scheme with crime lord Jose Piedrahita, an infamous narcotrafficker and assassin associated with the Cali Cartel.

    Webmaster's Commentary: 

    That would be perfectly predictable; after all, those would have been the years of the Clinton Presidency, and Bill and Hill didn't care who they got the money from, for favors; in fact, there is a marvellous photo of Hillary Clinton posing by the White House Christmas Tree with convicted drug felon Hose Cabrera.

    Hillary Clinton posing with convicted drug felon, Jose Cabrera, at a White House Christmas party

    She had to know; so why did she do this, understanding what the optics would look like?!?

    Because she believed, and still believes to this day, that she could, and can, do anything with impunity, no matter how ugly it may look, and get away with it.

    Hey, money from convicted drug felons; accepting money from heads of state at the Clinton Foundation, who had the LGBT citizens of their countries jailed, or executed; or heads of state where women routinely got genitally mutilated; that was just fine with her, as long as the money continued to flow.

    SYRIA - RUSSIA ISSUES THIRD WARNING AGAINST U.S. COOPERATION WITH TERRORISTS

    The Syrian Army was on its way across the Euphrates river to liberate the oil- and gas-fields east of Deir Ezzor city. The U.S. countered the move. It sent a small forces of Arab tribal mercenaries who were earlier allied with the Islamic State (ISIS). These proxy forces came from a northern direction and moved through Islamic State held areas without fighting and casualties up to the walls of Deir Ezzor city.

    The Syrian army was about to win the race when it started to cross the Euphrates. But it suddenly was surprised by a large al-Qaeda attack in southern Idleb province. That area had been quiet for months. 29 Russian troops who were supervising a deescalation zone there were nearly encircled by al-Qaeda forces. They only escape after an emergency relief operation had cut through al-Qaeda lines. The Russian Ministry of Defense accused the U.S. of having communicated the position of the Russian platoon to al-Qaeda.

    Webmaster's Commentary: 

    It appears as though the Deep Staters in the Bowels of Power in the Occupied, Unhinged, Surveilled States of Amerika, have decided that a shooting war against Russia in Syria is a brilliant idea.

    CONFIRMED: Vegas Shooting Suspect Prescribed Dangerous Drugs – Just Like Many Previous Mass Shooters

    While many in mainstream media are quick to blame weapons themselves for the criminal actions of wicked individuals, the linkage between the consumption of psychotropic drugs and mass shootings in the United States is the real story. While all people on psychotropic drugs are not mass shooters, most mass shooters are on psychotropic drugs.

    Can the Government Keep Us Safe? Don’t make Judge Napolitano laugh.

    This leaves us in a very precarious position today. The government cannot keep us safe, but it claims that it can. It wants to interfere with our natural rights to self-defense and to privacy, but whenever it does so, it keeps us less safe. And in whatever arena it keeps us less safe and falsely fosters the impression that we are safe, we become less free.
