Indian Security Forces Are Blinding Hundreds Of Protesters With Shotgun Pellets

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

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

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

Webmaster's Commentary: 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

WOW Former US Ambassador to Israel Rips Trump's Choice for the Position

Mr. Friedman is unqualified for the position, but more important, he holds extreme views on the very issues that he will need to manage as a diplomat. Mr. Friedman would be representing not the American people but a small, extreme minority of Americans who have in mind the interests of a small, extreme minority in Israel.

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

By Gilad Atzmon

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

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

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

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

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

Starving Yemeni Children, Bloated US Weapons Makers

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

Webmaster's Commentary: 

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

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

Images: wounded, starving, and dead children, courtesy of Saudi Bombing Raids

Still proud to be an American, understanding that your government is complicit in the genocide of Yemini kids, after seeing these images?!?

When I was a kid growing up, I would never have imagined that my country would wind up a proud partner in war crimes.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Webmaster's Commentary: 

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

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

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

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

Because the reality is, you cannot both be right.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

CIA Running Disinformation Campaign Against Donald Trump – Rep King

Congressman Peter King (R-NY), a member of the Homeland Security Committee and the Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence is interviewed regarding the contrived story of a Russian hack attempting to help Donald Trump win the election. King has his own questions regarding the leaks from the CIA and their refusal to testify before Congress on the matter. Is it that part about being under oath that is leading to the resistance?

Coming next in ObamaCare: Insurance rationing?

For Minnesotans, coming next is meant literally. In order to keep insurers from fleeing the Mnsure ObamaCare exchange, Commerce Commissioner Mark Rothman and Governor Mark Dayton had to agree to massive rate increases across the board, which have garnered most of the headlines and discussion in this state and around the nation. Another less-discussed concession, though, might have even worse portents for the unaffordable Affordable Care Act. Rothman and Dayton have allowed insurers to cap enrollments in order to limit their losses — an act of rationing that may set precedent for negotiations in other states.

Critics Slam Congress for Creating an Orwellian “Ministry of Truth”

Under the guise of countering foreign “propaganda,” the GOP-controlled Congress quietly passed a bill last week that will unleash even more government propaganda on humanity, while at the same time establishing what critics blasted as an Orwellian “Ministry of Truth.” The “bipartisan” but flatly unconstitutional scheme, dubbed the Countering Disinformation and Propaganda Act, also calls for providing tax funding and training to “journalists,” media outfits, and other propagandists willing to parrot the U.S. government's viewpoints. According to its sponsors, the goal is to help promote Washington, D.C.'s “foreign policy goals.” The potential for abuse, though, is nearly endless, and the bipartisan establishment's “foreign policy goals” are often at odds with the Constitution — not to mention common decency, human liberty, and peace. And so, critics are speaking out forcefully.

US Gov’t, Oligarchs Behind Planned Fake News Flagging on Facebook

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

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

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

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

Bombshell: Sacrificing children to the state of California: SB18

This bill is basically setting up the population of California for state regulatory agencies to fill in the blanks later, to make specific controls out of the vague generalities in the bill. Get it?

“Medical care and nutrition and parenting and education are what we say they are. We define and enforce, you obey.”

SB18 is also an invitation to immigrants anywhere in the world who can get to California with their children, or will give birth to children after arriving: “Just be here and we’ll take care of you.”

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

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

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

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

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

Webmaster's Commentary: 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Webmaster's Commentary: 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Webmaster's Commentary: 

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

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

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

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

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

Israel among world’s worst jailers of journalists

As of 1 December, there were 259 journalists jailed worldwide, according to the annual census conducted by the Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) – the highest number on record.

By far the largest group, 81 journalists, are detained in Turkey, followed by China (38) and Egypt (25).

Israel is holding 7 journalists, according to CPJ, which puts it on a par with Syria and Bahrain, just behind Iran (8) and ahead of Saudi Arabia (6).

IT’S NOT OVER: FIGHT AGAINST DAKOTA ACCESS PIPELINE ENTERS NEW PHASE

In early December, a blizzard struck North Dakota, blanketing the Oceti Sakowin, Rosebud, and Sacred Stone water protector camps with heavy snow in below freezing temperatures. As the Standing Rock Sioux and allies battled the crippling cold, the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers (USACE) handed the native community a victory by denying the permit for the final construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline. The USACE said they will conduct an environmental impact assessment and consider possible alternative routes.

Although fireworks rang out above the camps following the Army Corps decision, there was also a sense of hesitation. Water protectors remained uncertain over whether the fight had really been won or if the decision was simply a ploy to delay an inevitable conclusion. It quickly became apparent that the fight was not over as word spread that the company behind the pipeline, Energy Transfer Partners, would continue with their plans to complete the project.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

With $20 million a day at stake in revenues, my guess is, that what we are seeing now, is simply a series of delaying tactics, and a hope, on the part of Energy Transfer Partners, that the issue will go away.

Although many of the Standing Rock Souix have returned home, due to extreme winter weather conditions, this issue, of the protection of both their water, land environment, and sacred burial grounds, will not go away.

The boycotting of those financial institutions supporting DAPL, coupled with legal challenges against the project, are good moves, but may not be strong enough to stop the project in the long run.

But MPs today defied the will of the people by voting against placing any cap on EU migrants.

Obama Vows Retaliation Against "Russia Hacking", To Hold Press Conference On Friday

And sure enough, on Thursday evening CNN reported that President Barack Obama vowed retaliatory action against Russia for its meddling in the US presidential election, in effect telling Russia he is about to declare cyberwar on it.

"I think there is no doubt that when any foreign government tries to impact the integrity of our elections that we need to take action and we will at a time and place of our own choosing," Obama told National Public Radio. He is certainly right: the only doubt is that a foreign government did in fact try to "impact the integrity of our elections."
Webmaster addition: It's worse than that. A few years back, the administration declared that cyber attacks would be considered an outright act of war justifying military response!

PropOrNot All-Star Organizers: Koch, Soros, CIA, MI6, Ukraine, All Together Now

Koch Brothers Secretly Allied w. George Soros for Hillary Clinton … The leading financiers of the Republican Party, the Koch brothers, were exposed ... by the great investigative journalist Lee Fang, as being solid supporters and heavy financiers of congressional candidates who have been leaders in expanding the U.S. military budget and moving America toward a police state (including militarization of the police).

The leading financier of the Democratic Party, George Soros, has long been known to provide major financial backing for the most-neoconservative Democratic candidates, such as Hillary Clinton, who favor every possible military invasion and coup (and see this, for more on that).

Webmaster's Commentary: 

My heaven, what a (slightly strange) collection of connected bedfellows, in this attempt to thrououghly destroy America's Constitutional Republic!!

I have to wonder just what the heck these people are going to do if they are unable to turn the number of electors Clinton needs to steal the election from Trump on Monday?!?

Unfortunately, and because they have extensive experiences in doing this to effect "regime change" in other countries, Soros' organisations and the CIA may well be scheming to generate national riots against the Trump Presidency, and have Obama (during his allegedly "last days in Office") suspend the Constitution and Bill of Rights, invoking martial law; and declaring November's elections null and void, promising to schedule a replacement election at a later point in time.

Unfortunately, should they pull this off successfully, I am very concerned that the excrement will hit the ventilation system, and we may well see a civil war in this country.

I hope (and pray) that our current political circus doesn't move the country in this direction.

But to all of our readers and listeners, please make sure that you have everything you need if there is a major emergency, and can either shelter in place comfortably, or know how - and where - you will bug out, if you need to do so.

Facebook to become left-wing propaganda echo chamber with Orwellian plan to label independent journalism “fake”

Facebook has announced a new plan today that will very quickly transform the social media site into an “echo chamber” of left-wing media lies and delusional propaganda (just like we’ve recently seen pushed by the Washington Post).

The new effort will rely on left-wing “fact checker” organizations like Politifact and Snopes to determine the “truthiness” of news stories, reports Business Insider. Those stories deemed by left-wing “fact checkers” to be inaccurate will be buried in Facebook users’ feeds as a form of organized totalitarian censorship.

Elite vs. Trump

snip: If the FBI and CIA don’t hunt down the person who divulged this “secret report,” it was an authorized release. You’re being misled on purpose.

Now, getting back to the story, let’s note that there is zero evidence given. Just “it was a secret report, trust us.” Not one of the “officials” is named.

It should also be noted that Julian Assange has flatly denied that Russia was the source of the leaks. And Assange, unlike 99% of all Washington, has a reputation for truth-telling.

There were earlier reports blaming Russia for the Wikileaks hacks, and they, likewise, provided zero evidence. They say things like “consistent with Russian methods,” implying, it would seem, that Russia has some kind of patent on hacking techniques. They expect us to believe that Putin’s crews run their hacks from Russian companies and Russian IP addresses.

US troops to arrive in Europe in January to reassure allies

The United States is deploying troops to Poland, the Baltic states and Romania next month as part of raising the security of the region, Polish and U.S. defense officials said Wednesday.

Polish Defense Minister Antoni Macierewicz made the announcement following talks with the commander of U.S. land troops in Europe, Lt. Gen. Ben Hodges, in Zagan, western Poland. An Armored Brigade Combat Team from Fort Carson, Colorado will be deployed there early next month, while another U.S. force, a battalion, will be deployed April 1 to Orzysz, in the northeast.

Macierewicz said he was "very happy that a decision has been taken by the U.S. side for an earlier deployment."

But the U.S. Army told The Associated Press that the deployment was not accelerated and is taking place as had always been scheduled.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If, in fact, this deployment has been accelerated, it is reason to worry; the 1st of January will be upon us in 17 days.

And apparently, it appears that fact-checking is something AP doesn't do anymore, when the facts do not support the US government's narrative, which is clearly the case here.

The US and NATO understand that Russia did NOT annex Crimea in 2014, so they are using this lie as their justification to provoke some kind of war against Russia even before Trump has the opportunity to take the Oath of Office.

This is the American "deep state" at its worst.

Something wicked this way comes, folks.

BANNED BY 119 COUNTRIES, U.S. CLUSTER BOMBS CONTINUE TO ORPHAN YEMENI CHILDREN

Villagers in al-Hayma told The Intercept they heard rumbling around 3 o’clock in the afternoon. Soon after, they saw a jet from the Saudi-led coalition circling over the coast. Assisted by the U.S. with weapons and intelligence, Saudi Arabia has been bombing and blockading Yemen for 21 months.

“The warplane was hovering toward the shoreline before I saw something with parachutes falling down,” said Yahya Qassem Zabah, a local fisherman. “For a moment I thought that soldiers were landing. Then I heard a number of explosions soon after that.”

What Zabah saw was not a soldier parachuting toward the coast, it was a cluster weapon. In mid-air, its shell casing opened and released cylinder-shaped bomblets, which scattered as they plummeted to the beach.

All at once, like deafening firecrackers, explosions ripped across the sand, splintering, smashing, and overturning fishing boats.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That the US government is complicit in war crimes is an absolute given here, as this government continues to militarily enable the Saudi military.

However, as reported at motherjones.com in September of this year, regarding Textron's phasing out of the manufacture of cluster munitions in the US:

This week, states parties and advocates meet in Geneva for the Meeting of States Parties to the Convention on Cluster Munitions. But as former Navy explosive ordnance disposal officer turned public radio reporter John Ismay notes, the United States doesn't have the best track record when it comes to arms treaties. "We haven't signed the land mine treaty. We still have nuclear weapons. We still have napalm bombs in the inventory," he says. "I have a feeling these are things we'll hang on to." Plus, they're still legal under US law. While Textron Systems is ending its cluster bomb program, the Pentagon could turn to a different manufacturer. Or Textron may be willing to license its technology to other defense contractors. On that point, the company did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Textron has been made enormously profitable by the sale of these weapons; my best bet would be that they would license the technology to other defense contractors who are out of the country, so that their executives could say, with a reasonably straight face, that they no longer made these bombs, and technically, they would be correct in that statement.

That is the idea being pushed in H.R. 4919, a bill so vaguely worded that we should all be very, very concerned.

While it's currently being promoted as a way to keep track of those who are "mentally incompetent" due to Alzheimer's, dementia, mental health issues, or developmental disabilities, I think we can all see the potential for abuse.

Ex-British ambassador who is now a WikiLeaks operative claims Russia did NOT provide Clinton emails - they were handed over to him at a D.C. park by an intermediary for 'disgusted' Democratic whistleblowers

Craig Murray, former British ambassador to Uzbekistan and associate of Julian Assange, told the Dailymail.com he flew to Washington, D.C. for emails
He claims he had a clandestine hand-off in a wooded area near American University with one of the email sources.

The leakers' motivation was 'disgust at the corruption of the Clinton Foundation and the 'tilting of the primary election playing field against Bernie Sanders'
Murray says: 'The source had legal access to the information. The documents came from inside leaks, not hacks'.

'Regardless of whether the Russians hacked into the DNC, the documents Wikileaks published did not come from that,' Murray insists.

Murray is a controversial figure who was relieved of his post as British ambassador amid allegations of misconduct but is close to Wikileaks.

His account contradicts directly the version of how thousands of Democratic emails were published before the election being advanced by U.S. intelligence.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

At this point, I would tend to believe Murray's account over ANYTHING the CIA had to say.

FEMA FIELD FORCE MANUAL OFFERS PROTESTERS INSIGHTS INTO THE FUTURE OF CROWD CONTROL

Though construction on the Dakota Access Pipeline has halted for now, the lessons for law enforcement and protesters are still percolating. For the former, they’ll likely find themselves one day studying the event as they prepare for future mass gatherings, maybe in a guide just like the one distributed by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to North Dakota law enforcement in September.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Looking at some of the weapons approved for crowd control that DHS is permitted to use, toward the end of this article, is very, very scary.

MEDIA IGNORES US RIGGING OF RUSSIA’S ELECTIONS AS CIA STRUGGLES TO PROVE RUSSIAN HACKING

Mainstream, corporate media and the U.S. political establishment has once again proved the depth of their hypocrisy in thus far unsubstantiated claims Russia directly interfered with the presidential election — because the United States has done so, itself, with multiple countries.

Including Russia.

Twenty years ago, TIME Magazine exclusively reported on the feats of American political consultants who’d managed — much to the joy of the United States government — to ensure Boris Yeltsin won re-election to the Russian presidency.

20 years ago, TIME praised America’s propaganda campaign to elect Yeltsin. Today, they have appeared to change their tone.

“TRANSPARENT” OBAMA ADMIN JUST ORDERED BUSH’S WAR CRIMES TO REMAIN SECRET FOR 12 MORE YEARS

Those who wished to read the full text of the notorious Senate report on documenting the CIA torture of detainees after 9/11 will have to wait for 12 years. The White House ordered it kept under seal after Barack Obama leaves office.
Seven US senators urged the Obama administration to declassify the 6,770-page Senate Select Committee on Intelligence report on the CIA’s detention and interrogation program so the public could have a full account of past torture practices.

White House counsel Neil Eggleston, in responding to the request, said the president had told the National Archives and Records Administration that access to the classified material should be shielded from public access requests for 12 years.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

No, Mr. President: this report on CIA torture should be released immediately.

The American people deserve to know what was done, in their names, and with their tax dollars, to torture prisoners of war into confessions. Consider the case of one Benyam Mohammed, as reported in the working papers, 2006, of the Council of Europe Parliamentary Council, and I warn you: the language is very graphic, but I think Americans should definitively know what went on in the torture sessions the US military did directly, or outsourced, as was the case here.

206. At its worst, the torture involved stripping Binyam naked and using a doctor's scalpel to make incisions all over his chest and other parts of his body: "One of them took my penis in his hand and began to make cuts. He did it once and they stood for a minute, watching my reaction. I was in agony, crying, trying desperately to suppress myself, but I was screaming. They must have done this 20 to 30 times, in maybe two hours. There was blood all over. They cut all over my private parts. One of them said it would be better just to cut it off, as I would only breed terrorists."

207. Eventually Binyam began to co-operate in his interrogation sessions in an effort to prevent being tortured: "They said if you say this story as we read it, you will just go to court as a witness and all this torture will stop. I could not take any more... and I eventually repeated what they read out to me. They told me to say I was with bin Laden five or six times. Of course that was false. They continued with two or three interrogations a month. They weren't really interrogations —more like trainings, training me what to say."

The bottom line here is, torture will get the tortured person to say anything their torturers want them to say in order to get the torture to stop; they were getting precisely the false confessions his torturers wanted from this guy, which he gave in order to get the torture to stop.

It does not produce actionable intelligence.

One of the finest interrogators of all times, Germany's Hanns-Joachim Scharff, during World War 11, never used any torture; only kindness, but wound up with great intel from the process. In fact, after the war, because he was so respected by the American military, he was invited to give courses in his methods of interrogation here in the states.

Hanns Scharff

And I will tell you what else happens, when the US government either tortures, or outsources torture.

1. It demonstrates to the world that the United States does not believe in the
rule of law at all, so its treatment of prisoners of war absolutely does not
follow the Geneva Conventions, which provide for the humane treatment of
these prisoners.

2. It gives carte blanche to leadership of other countries to torture American
civilians and military personnel.

3. It demonstrates, both at home and abroad, that US leadership has utterly
no moral compass whatsoever.

Federal agents raid Ely bait shop, seize thousands of ciscoes

Maki said that eight to 10 special agents with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service entered his shop that day, asking him repeated questions about whether the ciscoes he sells came from the U.S. or Canadian side of the international border. Maki said he told agents that Ely's Bob LaTourell, who nets the ciscoes for him, does so exclusively on the U.S. side of the border.

"It's a witch hunt, in my opinion," said Maki, who has operated the shop for 34 years.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I guess the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is out to prove what a useful agency they are so that they don't get hit with Trump's budget ax!

KEITH OLBERMANN LOSES IT: US MILITARY WILL SOON BE CONTROLLED BY 'SCUM' BEHOLDEN TO 'RUSSIAN SCUM'

Presented below with little comment is an epic rant, culminating in what might have been an actual on-air nervous breakdown, by Keith Olbermann about the "Russian coup" that is currently in process and threatens "the end of the United States as an independent country."

"The nation and all of our freedoms hang by a thread. And the military apparatus of this country is about to be handed over to scum who are beholden to scum, Russian scum. As things are today, January 20th will not be an inauguration but rather the end of the United States as an independent country. It will not be a peaceful change of power. It will be a usurpation. And the usurper has no validity, no credibility and no authority under the constitution. This is a reality that will become the only reality until this country rids itself of Donald John Trump. He is not a President."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have listened to this from beginning to end.

Olbermann is either in severe need of a psychological intervention, or whatever the Democratic Party is paying him, it cannot possibly be enough.

Apparently, for this gentleman, fact checking has gone the way of the whoopie cushion and the dribble glass. As reported at zerohedge.com 5 days ago:

CIA agents told the lawmakers it was “quite clear” - although it was not reported exactly what made it "clear" - that electing Trump was Russia’s goal, according to officials who spoke to the Post, citing growing evidence from multiple sources. And yet, key questions remain unanswered, and the CIA’s report fell short of being a formal U.S. assessment produced by all 17 intelligence agencies the newspaper said, for two reasons. As we reported in November "The "Fact" That 17 Intelligence Agencies Confirmed Russia is Behind the Email Hacks Isn’t Actually…A "Fact", and then also because aside from so-called "consensus", there is - once again - no evidence, otherwise the appropriate agencies would have long since released it, and this is nothing more than another propaganda attempt to build tension with Russia. In fact, the WaPo admits as much in the following text, which effectively destroys the article's entire argument : The CIA presentation to senators about Russia’s intentions fell short of a formal U.S. assessment produced by all 17 intelligence agencies. A senior U.S. official said there were minor disagreements among intelligence officials about the agency’s assessment, in part because some questions remain unanswered. For example, intelligence agencies do not have specific intelligence showing officials in the Kremlin “directing” the identified individuals to pass the Democratic emails to WikiLeaks, a second senior U.S. official said. Those actors, according to the official, were “one step” removed from the Russian government, rather than government employees. Moscow has in the past used middlemen to participate in sensitive intelligence operations so it has plausible deniability. * * * “I’ll be the first one to come out and point at Russia if there’s clear evidence, but there is no clear evidence — even now,” said Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee and a member of the Trump transition team. “There’s a lot of innuendo, lots of circumstantial evidence, that’s it.”

If the Chair of the House Intelligence Committee states that there is zero evidence of Russian complicity in this election, I think one can understand that there is no evidence, period, end of discussion.

To put it bluntly, Mr. Olbermann has lost his reality license, as evidenced by this statement, and has simply become a total apparatchik of the Democratic party; he needs to be stripped of his TV "bully pulpit", and immediately, for a complete lack of credibility.

U.S. KIDS KEEP GETTING DUMBER; RANKED 31ST OF 35 DEVELOPED NATIONS IN MATH, NEW STUDY REVEALS

The U.S. Department of Education has just released it's latest ranking of international education systems (Program for International Student Assessment - "PISA") and performance of U.S. students just continues to deteriorate on both absolute and relative terms.

Perhaps it's time to have a real conversation about the complete failure of "Common Core" and the idiocy of allowing teachers' unions to hold our children hostage while hiding behind ridiculous contracts that grant tenure after 6 months and make it impossible to fire underperformers. Just a thought for the incoming Trump administration.

The Washington Post’s Valerie Strauss summed up the problems nicely:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The dumbing down of America's kids has been deliberate, courtesy of the Federal Government, and a system of alleged standards, under the heading of Common Core, which have failed, utterly.

When kids are not taught to be literate, both numerically and linguistically, they become incapable of critical thinking, which makes all the difference in determining what the quality of their lives will be

Critical thinking will also give them the capability to determine if what the US government is telling them is true or false.

That is not something the US government wants our kids, let alone our adults, to be able to do, because it lies to its people consistently, and it is best that kids understand this when they are very young, so as not to swallow its propaganda, but understand the narrative the government is supporting, and why.

Public schools have become a danger to the intellectual and emotional health of our kids; if you have any way of pulling your child out of public school, and either home school that child, or find a magnet school with a proven track record, please do it now now.

Your child will thank you for it later.

Bakersfield, Calif. Police Who Shot Senile 73-Year-Old Crucifix-Wielding Grandpa 9 Times Trained By DHS, ADL

26-year-old rookie cop Reagan Sellman, a former Marine, shot and killed a 73-year-old grandpa suffering from dementia Monday morning at 12:30AM. The rookie cop unloaded his gun on Francisco Serna claiming he had a gun, when in reality it was a Catholic crucifix. The police had even been to the house several times before and were familiar with the man. A paranoid neighbor woman, who didn't even know her own neighbor who lived across the street from her, initiated the whole thing when she freaked out and called the cops on Serna, claiming the confused elderly man had a gun and was posing a threat to her. When Francisco came across the street to talk to them, the paranoid woman and her husband ran into their house and police open-fired, murdering him.

US Cancels Arms Sales To Saudi Arabia, But There’s A $115 Billion Problem

In a surprise move, the United States has announced that they will halt sales certain munitions sales to Saudi Arabia yesterday, citing growing concerns about “flaws” in Saudi targeting in the Yemen war, which is leading to a huge number of civilian deaths. Officials quoted in Reuters described a “systemic, endemic” problem with Saudi targeting in the war, and decided that they could no longer sell certain “air-dropped” weaponry to the Saudis. The shift is surprising, as US officials have repeatedly claimed support for the Saudi war, but it isn’t necessarily a huge shift.

NATO-Russia War Seen As Top "Conflict" Risk For 2017 By CFR

A NATO-Russia confrontation has been deemed a top risk by by the CFR survey, conducted by foreign policy experts. This placed it alongside the risk of a nuclear crisis with North Korea, a highly disruptive cyberattack, and a severe terrorist attack on the US among the events with the highest impact on the US.

The likelihoods for the biggest potential conflicts coming true were split into two groups – those with a moderate likelihood of happening, but causing a high impact; and those with a high likelihood of happening, but causing a moderate impact.

Unlike prior years, in 2017 no scenario was deemed both highly likely and highly impactful to U.S. interests, a change from last year when an intensification of Syria’s civil war was considered the most urgent threat. Respondents still considered a worsening of Syria’s civil war to be highly likely in 2017, but downgraded its impact on U.S. interests from high to moderate.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I certainly wish that the esteemed members of the CFR could prove one incident of alleged "Russian Aggression"; because all I have seen is the polar opposite fact that NATO has been surrounding Russia with weapons and troops, calling for more expanded moves in that direction for next year!

Russia NEVER "annexed Crimea"; in the Spring of 2014, the US government, in collusion with the IMF, NATO, and various Soros organisations, threw the duly elected Yanukovich under the proverbial bus, then anointed Poroshenko as Ukraine's President, in an election even more crooked than a dog's hind leg!!

Victoria Nuland, in a presentation, even bragged about how much the US had spent to destabilize Ukraine, in a presentation:

Victoria Nuland's Admits Washington Has Spent $5 Billion to "Subvert Ukraine"

At that point, Crimean officials understood that there was no honest representation in Kiev, so they first asked their people, in an observed, and honest, referendum as to whether they wanted to stay with Ukraine, or request to join the Russian Federation. The Crimean people voted overwhelmingly to join the Russian Federation. A petition was put forward to the Russian Federation, asking if Crimea could be accepted as a member, and the Russian Federation accepted.

But this act of peaceful self-determination by the Crimeans made the governments of the Ukraine and US so angry, that they accused Russia of having "annexed" Ukraine, so punished them with sanctions, and insisted that the EU follow along.

NATO, Ukraine, and the US government continue to lie about something which Russia never did, and THAT is their basis for characterizing Russia's behaviour as "aggressive".

In fact, this headline should more clearly read "NATO WANTS WAR WITH RUSSIA"; with all the verbal belligerence on the part of NATO Secretary General, Jens Stoltenberg, against Russia recently, particularly concerning its involvement with getting rid of Jihadists, that headline would be more real.

US-RUSSIAN WAR TENSIONS MOUNT OVER EASTERN EUROPE AND SYRIA

NATO to increase its combat readiness amid Russian activity - Stoltenberg

What is needed here is a pullback from the rhetoric, and the introduction of some common-sense, intelligent negotiations here between Russia, NATO, AND THE US Government.

War does not have to be inevitable here.

Russia is not the enemy here, despite NATO's best efforts to paint it as such.

792,000 Illegal Aliens Issued Driver's Licenses In California Since Program Launch

I have been reporting on the DMV stats periodically since California's AB60 was passed. The law allows those who aren't citizens or permanent residents to get a driver license if they provide proof of residence, pass a written-knowledge exam and a behind-the-wheel driving test. The DMV has stopped publishing the numbers on their website as they had promised, but I contacted them and they politely sent me all the latest stats. (Since the law was enacted, 168,000 AB60 applicants failed to get their license, so can we presume that they aren't driving around?)

There's A Psy-Op, All Right; But It Isn't "The Russians"

Enough with “the Russians” already. This “Russian Disinformation” and “Russian Hacking” stuff is getting more ridiculous by the day.

This is a war on the Trump presidency. It’s an attempted coup.

Maybe it’s even another effort to outright steal the presidency from Trump. Maybe there’s someone with a lot of money to throw into this “OMG THE RUSSIANS” rhetoric who really hates Russia and who really wanted Hillary Clinton to be the President. Maybe his name rhymes with “Doros.” I don’t know this for sure, but it’s at least a more likely story than “The Russians” hacking our election and deliberately spreading propaganda.

And it’s working. Ten of the Electoral College delegates have asked to be briefed on the Russian “interference” before they cast their votes on the 19th.

But that isn’t all. This is a two-for-one deal.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is more at stake here than the elections. Without the power of the White House behind her, Hillary is looking at multiple lawsuits, courtesy of her arrogance and corruption, which may well lead to jail time.

The Benghazi lawsuit, filed by survivors of those who were slaughtered there, is just the beginning.

The Saudi government paid 20% of her campaign costs, which amounted to a cool $240 million dollars, but - as the saying goes - they bet on the wrong horse. The influence they THOUGHT they would get from a Clinton White House ... will never happen.

The Clinton Foundation is toast, due to all the revelations about it being simply a slush fund and influence-peddling, pay-to-play operation. They will never get their money back. So what now?!?

Will Saudi Arabia file yet another lawsuit, or be called for testimony to the US Senate as to what that money was really supposed to buy?!?

And will there be more lawsuits from Judicial Watch, stemming from her corruption as Secretary of State?!?

The mounting possibilities of lawsuits yet to be filed against her, any one of which could see her in the slammer, are deliciously diverse, unless Obama gives her a blanket pardon, which will make both of them look cheesy and sleazy.

Embarking on rare visit to Muslim countries, Netanyahu vaunts Israel’s popularity

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu took off Tuesday morning for Kazakhstan and Azerbaijan, pointing to his trip to the two Muslim countries as an indication that rather than being politically isolated, Israel is courted by countries around the world.

During his two-day visit, aimed at fostering security, economic, and diplomatic ties, Netanyahu will become the first sitting Israeli prime minister to visit the region in almost 25 years of diplomatic relations between Jerusalem and the former Soviet republics of Central Asia. Visits by Israeli leaders to non-Arab Muslim-majority countries are rare.

Speaking to reporters at the airport, the prime minister said the trip was a further indication of Israeli success in developing relationships with Muslim counties.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"...courted country.", my ASTROLABE: Netanyahu is in these two countries on a weapons-selling junket. As reported by the Jerusalem Post yesterday:

Iranian adversary reveals it bought $5 billion of weapons from Israel

What is that old line from the Middle East, "The enemy of my enemy is my friend"; that is what is going on here.

The Israelis manufacture superlative weapons; Azerbaijan's government wants more of them.

It is just that simple.

Putin didn't win this election for Trump. Hillary Clinton did

The US political and media establishment is in a state of mounting frenzy over alleged Russian interference in the presidential election in favor of Donald Trump. The source of what has been called a “swell” of “circumstantial evidence” is the CIA, an agency which has been known to interfere with an election or two itself, and isn’t really a paragon of honesty.

And what exactly are the claims made by these Putin-did-it stories? That were it not for Russian chicanery, Hillary Clinton would have won the popular vote by five million and not almost three million? That displaced machinists on the banks of Lake Erie were so incensed by the Podesta emails that they voted for Trump instead of Clinton? That Putin was pulling FBI director James Comey’s strings in his investigation of the Clinton emails? That those scheming Russians were clever enough to hack into voting machines but not clever enough to cover their tracks?

Martin Armstrong Slams CIA "False Flag" To Cover Its Own Hack For Obama

Obama’s parting shot across the bow is his order of a full review into hacking aimed at influencing US elections going back to 2008.

Instead of targeting the CIA or the NSA, WikiLeaks went after an organization Democrats actually care about - the Democratic National Committee - and exposed its internal corruption. If Obama could, he would declare Wikileaks a Terrorist Organization and anyone who published its stuff should be thrown in prison.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What Obama has accomplished, with his directive to cause the CIA to make this fully unsubstantiated claim on Friday, is to make the political intrigues in this country look like those of a banana republic to the rest of the world, and completely delegitimize the American election process.

Smoothe move there, Mr. President!!

U.S. Continues Support For Saudi Arabia In Yemen While Halting Some Arms Sales

The United States has decided to limit military support to Saudi Arabia’s campaign in Yemen because of concerns over widespread civilian casualties and will halt a planned arms sale to the kingdom, U.S. officials told Reuters.

The United States will also revamp future training of the kingdom’s air force to focus on improving Saudi targeting practices, a persistent source of concern for Washington.

The decision reflects deep frustration within President Barack Obama’s government over Saudi Arabia’s practices in Yemen’s 20-month-old war, which has killed more than 10,000 people and sparked humanitarian crises, including chronic food shortages, in the poorest country in the Middle East.

It could also further strain ties between Washington and Riyadh in the remaining days of Obama’s administration and put the question of Saudi-U.S. relations squarely before the incoming administration of President-elect Donald Trump, who takes office on Jan. 20.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A memo to President Obama; Mr. President, in enabling the Saudi Government to buy their bombs from companies like General Dynamics, you, sir, have allowed this country's government to become complicit in Saudi war crimes in their "scorched earth" campaign in Yemen.

There is no polite way around this sir, and somewhere, in your heart of hearts, you know that this is true.

If gun manufacturers are to blame for gun crime, then the United States is responsible for the war crimes being committed in Yemen.

Saudis strike schools, hospitals, and open air market places with utter impunity; their actions in Yemen border on genocide.

(Warning: very graphic images follow)

dead and wounded Yemeni children, as a result of Saudi air strikes

Oh, and the blockade of Yemen's ports has meant that no food supplies can be delivered, which translates to children who are starving to death, slowly and painfully.

Images of Yemeni children, dying from starvation because of the Saudi blockade of Yemen's ports

When you kill or starve children to death, you take away the potential for a country's future, and it appears, even though you are a father yourself, that you are perfectly comfortable with this slaughter of Yemeni children.

That you use the starving children in Syria as "justification" to prolong that atrocity, is the rankest of hypocrisy.

But then, such an attitude, which dismisses these children as "merely collateral damage",is completely consistent with a sociopathic personality.

This military enabling of Saudi Arabia against the Houthis, rather than developing a strategy of engaging elements of both the Al Hadi government and the Houthi rebels in negotiations to end the bloodshed here, will go down as one of the worst, epic fails of your administrations, worse even than your attempt to keep the fighting in Syria going so you could "dump" your inability to regime-change Damascus on Trump.

History, sir, will not judge you kindly; and I can guarantee that it will judge you on the content of your character, and how that has been made evident by your failure to stop the wars you promised to stop; a further involvement in more wars; the embracing of the horribly immoral act of extrajudicial assassination; and your success at creating more wealth for the one percent, while leaving an economy in which 94 million American workers are not participating in the labor force.

As you strut around the country, and the world, on your "victory lap" before leaving office; please remember that the above is your "true legacy", both to Americans, and to the world.

House Passes Bill To "Microchip Citizens With 'Mental Disabilities'" - Who's Next?

We’ve all been warned that it is coming, but what is disturbing is that while technology surrounds us and some have concerns about privacy, most shrug at the massive amounts of data they are collecting about our lives, and the incredible level of control the system now has over each individual. This bill passed, clinging to the broadest base of “good intentions” that it could muster, i.e. caring for those with disabilities and decline with age. But in reality, it is a nose under the tent for a system that needs the ability to microchip dissenters, and to force cooperation on the part of the general population.

THE 'SOFT COUP' BUILDS: "MORE 'ELECTORS' DEMAND RUSSIAN INTERFERENCE BRIEFING BEFORE THEY VOTE

Donald Trump could have the election legally stolen from him on either December 19th when the Electoral College casts their votes or on January 6th when a joint session of Congress gathers to count those votes. As The Economic Collapse blog's Michael Snyder notes, the establishment is in full-blown panic mode at this point, and they seem to have settled on "Russian interference in the election" as the angle that they will use to unleash this 'soft coup' as today, the Hill reports more Democratic electors are joining the call for an intelligence briefing before they cast their votes for president on Monday.

Twenty-nine electors now are pressuring Director of National Intelligence James Clapper to disclose more information about the CIA’s conclusion that Russian interference helped sway the election in President-elect Donald Trump’s favor.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This reeks of the rotting essence which rests at the heart of the Clinton Cartel "ethos"; if they cannot get something honestly, they will move heaven and earth to steal it from its rightful owner, including the Presidency.

Should Clinton manage to flip the 38 electors necessary to claw the Presidency back from Trump, this action may well trigger a real civil war in this country; and then, it will be a question of whose side the US military will take in such a conflict.

Will they take the side of We the People; or the side of an oozingly illegitimate, Soros-installed, drug money-corrupted New World Order warmonger?!?

OBAMA’S LEGACY: INSTITUTIONALIZING ASSASSINATION COMPLEX FOR ANY PRESIDENT TO PLAY JUDGE, JURY, AND EXECUTIONER

As President Barack Obama’s administration comes closer to an end, the number of civilians killed by United States drone strikes in Pakistan, Somalia, and Yemen is at least 500, according to data compiled by the Bureau of Investigative Journalism.
Nearly all of the drone strikes were a part of the Obama administration’s institutionalization of a targeted assassination policy, where alleged terrorism suspects or individuals with ties to terrorism organizations were placed on kill lists for execution without charge or trial.

The Obama administration put out a report [PDF] on December 5 summarizing the “legal and policy frameworks” it relied upon in pursuing war. The second half of the report particularly focused on “targeting efforts” or targeted assassinations, which “comply with all applicable international obligations, domestic laws, and policies.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Extrajudicial assassinations are among the worst examples of Obama's "rule by terror" in the Middle East.

The people in the Middle East do not hate us "because of our freedoms"; they hate us because the US military has killed, and mailed, their families and their friends, and there is utterly no legal recourse they have to hand to stop this madness.

I have often thought that these extrajudicial assassinations were a ploy the US government uses to perpetuate jihad in the countries where this practice is carried out; now, I am reasonably certain I am correct on this.

War makes incredible profits for the banks, and for the military industrial complex, and the captains of both industries have one bond in common; before taking the jobs they now have, they have collectively had their consciences surgically removed.

It’s Beginning to Smell a Lot Like Totalitarianism, and I Don’t Mean Russia

If we smell precisely the stench of the totality of steps taken in NATO countries in recent months, especially in the United States and the European Union, we can smell the stench of totalitarian rule or some would call it, fascism, being quietly imposed on our basic human freedoms. Some recent examples give pause for reflection as to where we are allowing our world to drift.

"FAKE NEWS", CENSORSHIP, DARWIN AND DEMOCRACY

Censorship is not helpful to democracy--rather, it is the death of democracy.

The mainstream media is awash with hyper-active headlines about "fake news." How can we make sense of this sudden obsession?

Perhaps we can start by separating "news" from "analysis" from "commentary." "News" is "he said this, she did that, this happened." Analysis tries to make sense of trends that are apparent in the news longer-term--for example, why did Trump win? Is the economy actually healthy or not? "Commentary" is opinion that establishes a point of view and defends it while attacking other POVs.

All three of these news flows are constantly being spun /manipulated to support specific agendas and narratives. Now we are being told some of these news flows are false/ misleading and their intent is to disrupt democracy.

Martin Armstrong Slams CIA "False Flag" To Cover Its Own Hack For Obama

Obama’s parting shot across the bow is his order of a full review into hacking aimed at influencing US elections going back to 2008.

Instead of targeting the CIA or the NSA, WikiLeaks went after an organization Democrats actually care about - the Democratic National Committee - and exposed its internal corruption. If Obama could, he would declare Wikileaks a Terrorist Organization and anyone who published its stuff should be thrown in prison.

German minister sparks outrage after REFUSING to wear hijab during Saudi Arabia visit

GERMANY’S defence minister has sparked fury in Saudi Arabia after she willingly refused to wear a hijab during an official visit to the Kingdom.

According to an Iranian newspaper, Von der Leyen said: “No woman in my delegation will be required to wear the abaya, as the right to choose one’s attire is a right shared by men and women equally.”

Shortly after her meeting with the Deputy Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman al Saud, Saudis took to twitter to express their disdain for her actions.

Der Leyen wore a dark blue suit while donning the traditional ghutrah head covering.

Michael Ohnmacht, a German Embassy official, quickly tried to change the focus on the debate.

He said: “The talks between Deputy Crown Prince Mohammed and the German minister focused on ways and means to beef up Saudi German cooperation in different areas, including high-level exchanges, personally education and training, defence, mutual visits and security affairs."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The above is diplo-speak for the reality that Von der Leyen was most likely in Saudi Arabia to push weapons sales, now that Obama has denied the sales of some weapons to Saudi Arabia because of the war crimes they are committing with them in Yemen, and the reality that the Saudis funded approximately 20% of Clinton's campaign through the Foundation, and were expecting some quid pro quo, if she got elected.

Nature abhors a vacuum; that may well account for the timing of this visit.

Profits uber alles, right?!?

And please remember; back in March of this year, Germany sold choppers to Saudi Arabia.

Hamilton Electors Launch Ad Offensive Against Trump, Brand Him ‘Russian Stooge’

The Hamilton Elector’s website claims that the Founding Father intended the Electoral College to be a safety gaurd against electing an “unfit man” as president, which isn’t entirely true. In reality the Electoral College was intended to give voters in rural areas an equal voice in choosing their president, otherwise urban voters and their priorities would always overcome them.

It seems the Hamilton Electors are ramping up their efforts and investing serious money (notice they are collecting donations from their website of course) into an advertising campaign with Google, as they have been circulating ads across the Internet implying that Trump is somehow in league with Russia.

5 Factors that Transform Civil Unrest Into a Full-Blown Revolution

Revolutions usually are not an instantaneous occurrence, but rather have a slow buildup toward their culmination or climax. When a population suffers for a long period of time without any hope of change in a democratic fashion and their basic needs as individuals and families are not being met, many times matters are taken into their own hands. This is not necessarily a “right” or a “wrong” issue: it just is. Revolution is endemic, so to speak, of the human race.

In effect, everyone is now under their thumb with this, because anyone could doesn’t go along with the mass conditioning will be labeled ‘mentally –––’ and branded with a track-and-control chip.

What is the real purpose behind the ‘fake news’ attack?

Instead of admitting wrongdoing after this embarrassment, the MSM has decided to double down and escalate the accusation that the alternative media is “fake news.” Meaning, the MSM wants people to believe that we are liars and amateurs, that they are the “professionals,” and that the public should ignore everything the alternative media has to say from now on. I have to point out, though, that the narrative of mainstream news versus “fake news” seems a little thin to me. Meaning, I believe there is more going on here than the MSM simply trying to save itself.

Myanmar military behind torching of Rohingya villages: HRW

Human Rights Watch says evidence shows Myanmar’s military is behind the torching of villages belonging to persecuted Rohingya Muslims in Rakhine State, urging the government to allow aid agencies and media into the troubled region.

On Tuesday, the New York-based rights body released Satellite imagery and interviews with witnesses, saying at least 1,500 buildings have been destroyed since October 2015 in Rakhine, home to a large number of Rohingya Muslims.

“The new findings refute the Myanmarese military and government’s claims that Rohingya militants were responsible for burning down their own villages,” said Brad Adams, Asia director at the rights group.

“The satellite imagery and eyewitness interviews clearly point the finger at the military for setting these buildings ablaze,” he added.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I never, this lifetime, thought I would have to say, "Watch out: here come the Buddhists!" Unfortunately, however, in Myanmar, that seems to be the case.

This ethnic cleansing attempt, on the part of the government by destroying Rohingya homes, is a very black mark against the Mayanmarese military.

And Aung San Suu Kyi, now the State Councellor of Myanmar, shame on you! Because of your background, and your steadfastness for human rights, people in both your own country, and around the world, are thoroughly disappointed in your not taking a very strong stand against this behaviour.

Web Bots Predict Massive Financial Shock In Early 2017: ‘Confusion, Bond Market Degradation, Crumbling Of Everything’ - Mac Slavo

Clif High of HalfPastHuman, however, has taken a different course. Since the mid-1990’s High’s algorithms have been scouring the internet. With the advent of social networks and tens of thousands of citizen-driven blogs, that data has gotten ever more accurate. So accurate in fact, that on October 27 High’s automated “Web Bots” predicted that not only would Trump win by a landslide, but that Hillary Clinton would be “missing” following the election, a prediction that was so accurate it blew away just about every professional analysis firm in the world.

Now the Web Bots are predicting another paradigm-shifting event. According to Clif High, it appears that a massive financial shock is brewing for early 2017:

We’re facing the following situation…

The confusion, the degradation of the bond market, the crumbling of everything else…

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As we have counseled so many times on this blog, please don't panic: plan.

Do not have any more money in your bank account than you need to pay your bills.

Reduce your credit card balances to near zero; buy minor items on them, so the cards do not get pulled for non-use.

Buy some silver, and/or gold, if possible. Find a place where you can store it inconspicuously, so it will can not found by looters.

Find neighbours you feel comfortable with, and see what services you can barter with them, if things get really bad. Should this happen, it will be a time when members of small communities really need to support each other.

Make sure you have long-term storable food; potable water; a way to cook things if electricity goes out; extra medications for yourself, your family, and pets.

Make sure, if you are separated from your family, that you have a plan for getting back together. If you have kids in school, make sure you know what the school's policy is if you feel you need to take them home early, in case of an emergency.

Plan an escape route, identify where you need to go, and know precisely what you will take in your bugout kit.

Make sure you have communications devices with you (two way radios, and lots of batteries are a good idea if phones stop functioning) take a look at the product ratings, and see which one looks like the best; also, make sure you have equipment for self-protection ahead of any emergency situation.

Not Just America: Germany and Other Countries Blame Russia for Losses By Status Quo

The indisputable fact is that prevailing institutions of authority in the West, for decades, have relentlessly and with complete indifference stomped on the economic welfare and social security of hundreds of millions of people. While elite circles gorged themselves on globalism, free trade, Wall Street casino gambling, and endless wars (wars that enriched the perpetrators and sent the poorest and most marginalized to bear all their burdens), they completely ignored the victims of their gluttony, except when those victims piped up a bit too much — when they caused a ruckus — and were then scornfully condemned as troglodytes who were the deserved losers in the glorious, global game of meritocracy.

Baton Rouge police announced last week that one of their officers will not face any consequences for repeatedly punching a 16-year-old boy in the head while his fellow officers held him down.

According to the Advocate, the internal affairs complaint against the policeman, Sgt. Todd Bourgoyne, was found to be “not sustained” by Chief Carl Dabadie Jr. on August 25, according to police spokesman Lt. Jonny Dunnam, meaning investigators didn’t find evidence of wrongdoing or a violation of department policy.

“Fake News” Is A Ticking Suicide-Bomb

The simple truth is this, we have reached a moment of truth, the surprise Trump upset of the Establishment has not only exposed the perennial elitist control over the American corporate media and the entire political process, it has proven conclusively that the majority of that media has been actively engaged in a nationwide process of organized deception and perception management for the purpose of creating a false national narrative and the illusion of massive popular support for the Establishment candidate, Hillary Clinton. This false narrative came crashing down with the Trump win. The false news narrative, painted for us on the canvas of our minds in brilliant technicolor, was composed of hundreds of bits of Western “fake news”, stitched together in a bizarre patchwork quilt of “called nightly news”, then presented as “real news,” with the intention of subverting American Democracy.

To Tax Is to Destroy

Pleading the case on behalf of McCulloch, the eminent jurist Daniel Webster argued that Maryland had no authority to tax the bank. The essence of his argument was quite simple: "An unlimited power to tax involves, necessarily, a power to destroy."

The court agreed. Speaking for a unanimous court, Chief Justice John Marshall echoed Webster's words. He wrote, "The power to tax implies the power to destroy. If the States may tax one instrument, may they not tax every other instrument…? This was not intended by the American people."

Consequently, with the help of these two highly esteemed jurists, we have conclusively settled a point of contention among many scholars — that the unlimited power to tax is the power to destroy, clear and simple. And without question, the government has an unlimited power in this respect.

Let us now examine some of the many ways in which the power to tax destroys.

Furthermore, do Trump supporters think that the thousands, if not tens of thousands of far-left, violent, angry, protestors were going to change their minds on carrying out the largest civil uprising in our nation's history? WRONG!

The CIA’s Absence of Conviction

I had a call from a Guardian journalist this afternoon. The astonishing result was that for three hours, an article was accessible through the Guardian front page which actually included the truth among the CIA hype:

The Kremlin has rejected the hacking accusations, while the WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has previously said the DNC leaks were not linked to Russia. A second senior official cited by the Washington Post conceded that intelligence agencies did not have specific proof that the Kremlin was “directing” the hackers, who were said to be one step removed from the Russian government.

Craig Murray, the former UK ambassador to Uzbekistan, who is a close associate of Assange, called the CIA claims “bullshit”, adding: “They are absolutely making it up.”

“I know who leaked them,” Murray said. “I’ve met the person who leaked them, and they are certainly not Russian and it’s an insider. It’s a leak, not a hack; the two are different things.

Can Laws the Globalist Made Be Used to take Down New World Order’s Treasonous Subversives Under a Trump Administration?

The Patriot Act, The John Warner Defense Authorization Act, The Military Commissions Act, The Insurrection Act, NDAA of 2012 and Presidential Directive 51 were designed to quash the resistance to the New World Order by using the Military to take over state legislators and remove governors, local governments that will not go along with the globalist agenda. To arrest public servants and dissidents defiant to the tyrannical government coming out of Washington DC. To come after and arrest veterans, gun rights advocates, pro-life supporters and devout Christians. To remove the opposition was the goal.
Now the tables might have turned where these laws can be used against them. The New World Order has a good reason to be scared.

Intelligence Officer Who Personally Met the Democratic Email Leaker Confirms He Was with the American Intelligence Services … Not Russia

The former intelligence analyst, British Ambassador to Uzbekistan, and chancellor of the University of Dundee, Craig Murray, wrote yesterday:

As Julian Assange has made crystal clear, the leaks did not come from the Russians. As I have explained countless times, they are not hacks, they are insider leaks – there is a major difference between the two.

***

I know who leaked them. I’ve met the person who leaked them, and they are certainly not Russian and it’s an insider. It’s a leak, not a hack; the two are different things.

In other words, Murray – a close friend of Julian Assange – says he knows for a fact that there were no hacks at all … instead, an American insider leaked the information to Wikileaks.

MADURO STUNNER: VENEZUELA ELIMINATES HALF ITS PAPER MONEY AFTER PULLING LARGEST BILL FROM CIRCULATION

Having observed the economic chaos to emerge as a result of India's shocking Nov. 8 demonetization announcement, and perhaps confident it can do better, today president Nicolas Maduro of Venezuela, Latin America's most distressed economy, mired in an economic crisis and facing hyperinflation, likewise shocked the nation when he announced on state TV that just like India, Venezuela would pull its highest denominated, 100-bolivar bill (which is worth about two U.S. cents on the black market), from circulation over the next 72 hours, ahead of the introduction of new, higher-value notes, as large as 20,000.

"I have decided to take out of circulation bills of 100 bolivars in the next 72 hours," Maduro said. "We must keep beating the mafias."

To this we would add "and cue economic chaos", but since this is Venezuela, that's a given.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The questions rightly need to be asked; at what point with the Venezuelan people revolt against their government, and when that revolt does happen, what side will the Venezuelan military be on?!?

US sanctions against the country have not helped much.

Obama Signs Venezuela Sanctions Extension

And when oil prices were deliberately crashed last year, in an attempt to hurt Russia economically, it also hurt Venezuela economically as well, which the US government knew was going to happen.

The US government has hoped for "regime change" in this country, and may well get it in the not too distant future.

Nature abhors a vacuum.

I just have to wonder just who will wind up replacing Maduro, when he ultimately falls, and how repressive he or she will be, in the process of attempting to bring back Venezuela's economy from utter collapse.

Europe on the brink: Streets 'will become war zones' as continent descends into crisis

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

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

In December 2015, one of the most apocalyptic warnings came from André Blattmann, the Swiss head of the armed forces.

Blattmann, who left his job just weeks later, said the combination of hybrid wars, the economy, and the refugee crisis would have “unforeseen dimensions”.

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

Just weeks ago, French scholar of Islam, Gilles Kepel, told German newspaper Die Welt that the eventual goal of Islamic terrorism was not to simply murder western people in Europe.

He explained the purpose of bloody and vicious attacks on innocent people is to incite hatred among the general population of Muslims in general.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Yes, I know; this article appears both sensationalist and apocalyptic, as is thedailystar.com's style.

but I have to wonder, looking at all the disintegration we are seeing in European countries, and the problems brought on by out of control immigration, how far fetched are these assessments, and what can European politicians can actually do to prevent this predicted "civil war" in Europe?!?

I can tell you one thing; these European leaders better be thinking far ahead, and not just to the next election, before things do go wildly out of control in Europe!

35 things the media reported as FACTS that were later found to be total lies

Truth is the greatest enemy of the state, and the purpose of the state-run media is to broadcast a sufficient quantity of lies to suffocate the truth and thereby protect state interests.

As Nazi Propaganda Minister Joseph Goebbels once explained:

If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.

Here are 35 huge lies the mainstream media repeatedly reported as "facts" that we now know to be total lies:

However, if anyone could actually pause and call out this nonsense they might find it useful to reference the already well known politicization of the entire intelligence community apparatus. The politicization was/is so severe it led to an inspector general investigation:

MORE PROSECUTORS REFUSE TO ACCEPT GUILTY PLEAS BASED ON FAULTY $2 FIELD DRUG TESTS

It's a good start. The $2 drug tests are great for law enforcement drug warriors, but not much good for anyone else. The cheap tests, performed in the field by officers, have been known to call everything from baking soda to donut glaze illegal substances. This is often good enough for government work, especially when the government work involves obtaining convictions.

Harris County, Texas -- where the 300 wrongful convictions were uncovered -- is also no longer accepting pleas based on field test results. But that only solves part of the problem. The other problem is what to do with those accused of drug possession. Treating the tests as fallible helps prevent wrongful convictions, but those facing drug charges remain locked up while waiting for lab test results.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, drug enforcement agencies and police departments in this country were counting on the false positives these tests provided for convictions?!?

FBI Disputes CIA's "Fuzzy And Ambiguous" Claims That Russia Sought To Influence Presidential Election

The FBI did not corroborate the CIA’s claim that Russia had a hand in the election of President-elect Donald Trump in a meeting with lawmakers last week.

A senior FBI counterintelligence official met with Republican and Democrat members of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence in order to give the bureau’s view of a recent CIA report. The official did not concur with the CIA, frustrating Democrats.

The CIA believes Russia “quite” clearly intended to send Trump to the White House. The claim is a bold one and concerned Democrats and some Republicans who are worried about Trump’s desire to mend relations with an increasingly aggressive Russia. The CIA report was “direct, bold and unqualified,” one of the officials at the meeting told The Washington Post Saturday.

The FBI official was much less convinced of the claims, providing “fuzzy” and “ambiguous” remarks.

Can any sensible person believe Hillary lost to Trump because of Russia? It’s an absurdity on its face. Yet US, UK and other European media keep hyping it to their disgrace.

Murray called CIA charges against Russia “bullshit. They are absolutely making it up. I know who leaked them. I’ve met the person who leaked them, and they are certainly not Russian and it’s an insider. It’s a leak, not a hack; the two are different things.”

There you have it from a credible source with inside knowledge. Claiming Russian responsibility is blatant agency fake news, disgraceful lying for political reasons - clearly to bash Russia, while denigrating Trump’s triumph in service to Hillary and dark forces backing her.

Murray concluded saying “(t)he worst thing about all this is that it is aimed at promoting further conflict with Russia,” endangering everyone.

Washington Post goes “full treason” – fabricates entire story falsely claiming Trump won because of Russian hacks

The Washington Post has finally committed its most desperate act of credibility suicide, publishing a blatantly false, fabricated story that now claims Russia directly interfered with the election to deliver a victory to Donald Trump. Click here to read the WashPost fabrication in full.

The WashPost story does not name a single source for the accusation, and the obviously fabricated story serves primarily to provide cover for a previous story the Washington Post also faked (and then got caught faking).

“Journalism” at the WashPost, in other words, has devolved to the point where new fake stories are published to try to bolster the fabrications of old fake stories. All of them feed into the paranoid delusions of the hysterial left which has now entered the realm of clinically diagnosable mental illness when it comes to excuses for why Hillary Clinton lost the election to Donald Trump.

Q & A With Emily Youcis: Philadelphia Phillies 'Pistachio Girl' Fired For Being Pro-White

This weekend I contacted Emily Youcis, an independent animator and artist who was recently fired from her job hawking pistachios, beer, and other snacks at Philadelphia Phillies baseball games following coverage of her attendance at the NPI conference in Washington, D.C. late last month.

Flashback: Facebook, stop deleting Arab atheist and secularist groups and pages !

"This week only, more then 9 of the biggest Facebook groups of atheists and secular Arabs were closed after reports campaigns led by Islamist groups containing hundreds of thousands of members. They are abusing the Facebook report facility to remove all pages that oppose their ideology."

The link goes to a petition started in april this year but it seems the problems haven't been solved yet.

FLASHBACK - THE LIE OF THE (LAST) CENTURY

Then there was the claim about the "Mobile biological weapons laboratories". Proffered in the absence of any real laboratories in the wake of the invasion, photos of these trailers were shown on all the US Mainstream Media, with the claim they while seeming to lack anything suggesting biological processing, these were part of a much larger assembly of multiple trailers that churned out biological weapons of mass destruction.

The chief proponent of this hoax was Colin Powell, who presented illustrations such as this one to the United Nations on February 5th, 2003.

This claim fell apart when it was revealed that these trailers were nothing more than hydrogen gas generators used to inflate weather balloons. This fact was already known to both the US and UK, as a British company manufactured the units and sold them to Iraq.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As long as we are in a war between Corporate Media and Independent Media over who really is the "Fake News", it is time to remind everyone of this whopper that started a war and got a lot of people killed, including Iraqis tortured to death by the US!

How To INSTANTLY Tell If Russia Hacked the Election

In September, during a secret briefing for congressional leaders, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) voiced doubts about the veracity of the intelligence, according to officials present.

The Trump transition team dismissed the findings in a short statement issued Friday evening. “These are the same people that said Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction. The election ended a long time ago in one of the biggest Electoral College victories in history. It’s now time to move on and ‘Make America Great Again,’?” the statement read.

Trump has consistently dismissed the intelligence community’s findings about Russian hacking.

“I don’t believe they interfered” in the election, he told Time magazine this week. The hacking, he said, “could be Russia. And it could be China. And it could be some guy in his home in New Jersey.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And it could be the Department of Homeland Security, which was CAUGHT hacking into Georgia's voter information system.

LEAKED FOOTAGE EXPOSES CNN PRODUCING FAKE NEWS DURING FIRST GULF WAR

Leaked footage has emerged of Charles Jaco when he was the CNN anchor made internationally famous for heroically covering the 1990 Persian Gulf War.

The first part of this video shows the stage set he was on while he clowns around with fellow CNN staff. The Saudi Arabian “hotel” in the background is adorned by fake palm trees and a blue wall in a studio. This clip was leaked by CNN staff.

The second part of this video is a live CNN satellite feed recorded onto VHS showing the final cut. Charles Jaco is wearing a different jacket, but he had the same act. Even though the acting is terrible as Charles Jaco wore a gas mask, and his fellow correspondent Carl Rochelle wore a helmet—the American public were manipulated and duped en masse. The sirens and missile sound effects are part of the stage set. The camera never pans out or shows the sky as they appear terrified of chemical weapons being dropped from above.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If you want fake news, just continue watching the corporate prestitutes obediently regurgitating the propaganda, and narrative, the US government wants you to believe is real!!

The CIA's SECRET Plan For President Trump

Dec 11 09:39

TRUMP IS INHERITING POWER TO ASSASSINATE ANYONE, INCLUDING US CITIZENS, WITH NO OVERSIGHT

The Obama administration institutionalized a global killing apparatus that is unaccountable to the judiciary, and only nominally accountable to Congress. If US citizens aren't always entitled to due process, what limits will there be on attacks on non-citizens, especially under a Trump presidency?

Now, as President-elect Donald Trump prepares to take office after a campaign in which he promised to carry out war crimes, such as killing the families of suspected terrorists and reviving the torture program, Awlaki's death is getting renewed attention. If Awlaki, a US citizen, could be deprived of life without judicial oversight, what limits will there be on Trump's authority to carry out similar strikes against citizens and non-citizens alike?

Jameel Jaffer, author of the new book The Drone Memos and director of the Knight First Amendment Institute at Columbia University, explained to me that at its core, the Awlaki case was about centralized power in the executive branch.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would like to hope that Trump's threat to extrajudicially assassinate people and their families was simply campaign rhetoric, and nothing more.

My hope is, after having taken the Oath of Office, he will very much move to the center.

Should he choose to exercise this executive power of extrajudicial assassination, he will prove himself a profound disappointment, and moral embarrassment, to many of the people who supported him over Clinton in this last election cycle.

Trump Slams CIA Over Russia

OBAMA’S LEGACY: HUMAN COST OF EIGHT YEARS OF WAR

President Barack Obama declared during his second inauguration speech, “We, the people, still believe that enduring security and lasting peace do not require perpetual war.” However, one of the main legacies of Obama’s presidency may be that his administration further institutionalized a framework for a global “war on terrorism” with no end in sight.

In a report released on December 5 on the “legal and policy frameworks” for pursuing war, Obama suggests the frameworks show the U.S. is capable of defending its interests at home and around the world in a manner consistent with the “laws, values, and traditions” that are a “source” of America’s “greatest strength.”

There are six “theaters” of war, which the report highlights: Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Somalia, Libya, and Yemen. It omits Pakistan, where the CIA has launched drone strikes, as well as countries in Africa, like Mali.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And PLEASE, will someone from the Nobel Peace Prize Committee have the "male attributes" to call the White House, and ask for Obama's Peace Prize to be returned?!?

As warmonger-in-chief, he has hardly deserved it!!!

DISTURBING VIDEO SHOWS COPS TIE MAN TO CHAIR, BEAT HIM UNTIL HE GOES UNCONSCIOUS AND BLIND

Stop Resisting’ are the infamous words of police in America. While many times these words are warranted, all too often we hear them being repeated over and over as restrained and even unconscious victims are beaten to a pulp. Eastpointe’s Frankie Taylor is an example of one these cases.

On August 10, 2015, Taylor was picked up for a routine DUI arrest and brought to the Eastpointe police department for booking. When Taylor asked the officers what he was being booked for, they became enraged.

“If you keep acting like a child, you’re going to get strapped in that chair and you’re going to stay there,” an officer can be heard saying on the video.

When Taylor asks to use the phone, he is swarmed by police and forced into a restraint chair as police threaten to taser him. Once Taylor is in the chair, a sadistic officer is seen putting on his blue gloves before pummelling Taylor’s face — over and over again.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

You've just GOT to love how Michigan police interpret the phrase "to protect and serve" here.

For those Michiganders who can, vote with your feet, and move out of the state; if you are contemplating planning a conference, or any other kind of event in the state, move your venue now.

Then email Governor Rick Snyder about why you are doing this, and attach this article as your reason for doing this, which is that no visitor or resident of the state is safe from police brutality at this point.

Lost tax revenue hits a state where it hurts, and just may get enough traction to cause a change in how policing is done here.

Bill Would Allow Government to Locate People With Tracking Devices

A bill meant to help those with developmental disabilities would allow government agencies to locate people with tracking devices, which has some concerned the measure gives the federal government too much authority and power.

The legislation would permit the Justice Department to award grants to law enforcement agencies and non-profits for training and tracking devices to find individuals with autism or seniors with Alzheimer’s who have wandered away.

However, some are concerned the measure goes too far. The bill’s original language authorized the Attorney General to insert tracking chips into individuals involuntarily.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is a bridge too far, and not something the Federal Government should be doing; and I can say this because such legislation can be rapidly amended to include involuntary implantation of RFID chips into the bodies of people who have the annoying habit of exposing the US government's bad behaviour, when it is NOT acting in the best interests of We the People, but acting only in the behalf of their elite, corporate buddies.

I am quite sure that there are those in the bowels of this government who would love to put Mike and me on a "waiting list" for such devices; however, they would find our travels frustratingly predictable.

We'll run out to the market; the post office; church; and back home.

"HARD-CORE CLINTON FANATIC" MANUFACTURED "VIRAL FAKE NEWS" THAT MSNBC USED TO DISCREDIT WIKILEAKS

The phrase “Fake News” has exploded in usage since the election, but the term is similar to other malleable political labels such as “terrorism” and “hate speech”; because the phrase lacks any clear definition, it is essentially useless except as an instrument of propaganda and censorship. The most important fact to realize about this new term: those who most loudly denounce Fake News are typically those most aggressively disseminating it.

Tensions rise between Trump and the CIA over Russia's hacking during the 2016 campaign

Tensions between Donald Trump and U.S. intelligence officials boiled over Saturday as the president-elect’s transition team mockingly compared a secret CIA assessment that Russia tried to sway the U.S. election in Trump's favor to the agency’s misjudgments on Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction.

The widening public rift between the incoming president and the nation’s powerful intelligence community could pose high-risk problems both for his administration and for national security.

ARE THEY ACTUALLY CALLING FOR A “MINISTRY OF TRUTH” NOW?

You can really see how coordinated the effort is for political leaders and their lapdog mainstream media to call for the shutting down of free speech under the label “fake news,” which is really just another way of them saying, “Things that go against our agenda” or “The only fake news you get to watch or read is *our* fake news!” *whine*

The most sadly hilarious part, even more ridiculous than Obama essentially calling for a ministry of “truthiness,” was when Brian Williams actually sat in front of a camera and referred to himself as “the real news”.

America is clearly inching one step closer to George Orwell’s 1984… Where do you think they’ll build the Ministry of Truth?

‘Fake news’? Time to choose: Corporate media fakes us into their fake world never admitting to a history of their easily documented lies (4 of 15)

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

“First they ignore you. Then they laugh at you. Then they fight you. And then you win.” ~ unsourced, and attributed to Gandhi’s analysis of British empire response to having their hypocrisy exposed: claiming to bring Christian love and progress while looting resources with forced local labor.

The Washington Post added to President Obama’s rhetoric for Americans to be aware of “fake news”: easily refuted lies of omission and commission in media. This article series reveals the inversion of those claims: .01% “official” news by corporate media (six conglomerates) is easily documented as fake in our most important reporting.

The real reason Hillary Clinton is scolding Americans over ‘fake news’

Clinton’s beef, however, isn’t with fake news — it’s with free speech. After all, Clinton has been a huge promoter of actual fake news over the years. From bimbo eruptions to the Benghazi video, the former first lady has made a career out of media manipulation.
