Lawsuit Exposes How The Government's "Justice" System Keeps The Poor, Poor

The ACLU of North Carolina, the Southern Poverty Law Center, and the Southern Coalition for Social Justice have slapped the state of North Carolina with a federal lawsuit over the state’s practice of suspending drivers’ licenses over unpaid tickets.

According to Splinter News, in North Carolina, the DMV (Department of Motor Vehicles) is required by state law to automatically revoke a license after it receives notice from the court that a person has failed to pay their fines or penalties or associated costs. The lawsuit alleges that this state law violates the Fourteenth Amendment.

‘Save the Internet’ – EU Moves to Monitor Uploads, ‘Censor’ Memes, ‘Tax’ Website Links

The European Union (EU) is less than a month away from voting to introduce aggressive new online copyright laws and “widespread censorship” measures, which critics say could strangle new media websites and stifle satire and online meme culture.

Unelected European Commission bureaucrats have drafted legislation which detractors say could force online platforms to monitor and control all uploads to some platforms with “content recognition technologies”. They are also said to have proposed what has been termed a ‘link tax’, which could compel blogs and other websites to pay just to reference content.

The full effects of the legislation are still unclear, but critics allege that memes, remixes, and other types of user-generated content could be put at risk, as these could technically be seen as breaches of copyright — and so could sharing content on popular websites like Reddit, Tumblr, and Gab.

The Tate Murders were a False Flag and the Greatest Unknown Success Story of Project CHAOS

I am not denying that MKUltra existed, or that it worked on mind-control, but in the case of the alleged Tate murders and Kennedy murders, the mind-control theories are all on a par with the Satanism theories. They are sucker links, planted to misdirect you. If these murders are fake, and if most of the main characters are paid agents, then we don't need anyone to be mind-controlled. This is why the government doesn't mind seeing conspiracy theories that include mind-control or Satanism: those theories still include real murders and real corpses, so the desired story is kept intact. You are allowed and encouraged to theorize along those lines all you want, with Mae Brussell and others. The only theory you are not allowed to pursue is the correct one: the murders were faked.

'The Troika would have to march into Rome': German MEP says Brussels could take control of Italy's finance ministry if populist parties form a Eurosceptic government

Markus Ferber said the EU Commission, European Central Bank and International Monetary Fund may have to 'march into Rome' if the 5-Star Movement and League parties push ahead with their proposed programme of tax cuts and spending rises.

The two parties, which are the largest in Italy, have been trying to form a populist government but have so far been blocked by President Sergio Mattarella over their choice of a deeply Eurosceptic finance minister.

The parties campaigned on policies of a universal income for Italy's poorest and a flat tax rate of 15 per cent, which would cost the government an estimated total of £85billion per year.

If the moves go ahead they raise Italy's debt level way above limits the country agreed to as part of its Eurozone membership.

Fine-Tuning The Surveillance State

We have been watching the shift of society and all of its components to collectivist thought and action in preparation for the step into a full-blown totalitarian state.

Already the Constitution and our rights enumerated within it have been relegated to impotency and practically abrogated.

The key to this has not been the use of force, but the molding of thought and behavior over the decades within the schools, within the fostered predictive programming of pop culture and television, and within the lying, Marxist, mainstream media.

Iran To Bring International Lawsuit Against "ISIS Founder" America Based On Trump Statements

Iran says the US is responsible for the rise of ISIS, and is therefore indirectly to blame for twin terror attacks that rocked the Iranian parliament building and a popular religious shrine in June 2017, which left 17 civilians dead and 43 wounded, according to Iranian media figures.

“During the presidential campaign, Trump clearly spoke about the performance of his rival, Mrs. Clinton, saying that the US has created the ISIL,” Abolfazl Aboutorabi, a member of parliament’s judicial commission, announced on Tuesday in comments carried by Iranian state media. “The public prosecutor has also filed a lawsuit in this regard,” Aboutorabi added.

Resident Evil? DARPA Unveils Genetic "Tuning" To Fight Chemical, Radiation Attacks

In an oddly open and honest press release this week, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) - the U.S. military’s top research and development laboratory - explained how it has begun a new program - PREPARE - with the goal to change human genetics to defend against specific threats.

As DARPA explains so disquietingly, "PREPARE aims to develop new class of generalizable medical countermeasures that safely and temporarily tune activity of protective genes."

The "PReemptive Expression of Protective Alleles and Response Elements" program is aimed at exploring ways for the human body to protect itself against biological, chemical, and radiological threats by “temporarily and reversibly tuning gene expression to bolster the body’s defenses.”

For now, however, the military lab is exploring four current health challenges as part of its “proof of concept” stage:

influenza viral infection,
opioid overdose,
organophosphate (e.g. pesticides) poisoning, and

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder if DARPA is planning on using crispr gene editing technology to do this; but color me concerned on these experiments.

And how the heck can a subject be fully informed as to the outcome of these experiments, given that the scientists don't really know how the genes will behave, under such treatment?!? Could this ultimately wind up hurting people, when human trials begin?!?

The Islamization of England and the Arrest of Tommy Robinson

Robinson will be lucky if he manages to survive his 13 month sentence. That’s because British prisons contain a high percentage of Muslim inmates—many of whom would love to kill Tommy Robinson. According to several commentators, that’s the general idea. They suggest that the British authorities would be happy to have Robinson out of the way without having to do it themselves. It’s the latest iteration on “Will no one rid me of this troublesome priest?” Indeed, four years ago, Robinson was arrested for the minor crime of exaggerating his income on a mortgage application, sentenced to 18 months, and thrown into a prison cell with Muslim inmates who proceeded to beat him savagely.

All in the family: Valerie Jarrett and the Chicago communists

In Chicago, Jarrett’s family joined a circle with some other interesting characters:

Frank Marshall Davis was an African-American born in Kansas in 1905 who eventually moved to Chicago and joined Communist Party USA. Notably, he joined the party after the signing of the Hitler-Stalin Pact, a time when many American communists, particularly Jewish-American communists, left the party. They left because Stalin’s signing of the pact facilitated and enabled Hitler’s invasion of Poland and start of World War II. Frank Marshall Davis, however, was undeterred. He joined after the pact.

FBI Files Document Communism in Valerie Jarrett’s Family

Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) files obtained by Judicial Watch reveal that the dad, maternal grandpa and father-in-law of President Obama’s trusted senior advisor, Valerie Jarrett, were hardcore Communists under investigation by the U.S. government.

Jarrett’s dad, pathologist and geneticist Dr. James Bowman, had extensive ties to Communist associations and individuals, his lengthy FBI file shows.

Valerie Jarrett’s Communist Ties Confirmed by Judicial Watch

On Monday, Judicial Watch (JW), a conservative government watchdog group, released its findings that President Obama’s closest advisor, Valerie Jarrett, has had close ties to Communists for decades. Thanks to files released to JW by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Jarrett’s father, grandfather, and father-in-law all “had extensive ties to Communist associations and individuals.”

Jarrett’s father, Dr. James Bowman, worked closely with a paid Soviet agent named Alfred Stern, who fled the country after being charged with espionage.

Nerve agent

Nerve agents and antidepressants have something in common!

Nerve agents, sometimes also called nerve gases, are a class of organic chemicals that disrupt the mechanisms by which nerves transfer messages to organs. The disruption is caused by the blocking of acetylcholinesterase, an enzyme that catalyzes the breakdown of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter.

Poisoning by a nerve agent leads to constriction of pupils, profuse salivation, convulsions, and involuntary urination and defecation, with the first symptoms appearing in seconds after exposure. Death by asphyxiation or cardiac arrest may follow in minutes due to the loss of the body's control over respiratory and other muscles.

SHOCKING new details surface exposing LVMPD’s 1 October helicopter sniper mission

Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Officer/Helicopter Pilot Bryan Woolard and Henderson (Acting Tactical Flight) Officer J. Oberding were reportedly at the hanger facility on the night of 1 October and were operating LVMPD’s MD-500 helicopter under the call sign “Air 5” (#N911WY) when they received a call from a Lieutenant K. Delzer who ordered the two eager officers to respond to an active shooter incident at the “Route 91 venue,” according to an Officer’s Report (See page 81 and 82) filed with the department four days after the massacre.

Poland offers $2bn for permanent US base, Moscow warns of ‘dangerous’ consequences

Poland is reportedly willing to pay $2bn for permanent presence of US troops in the country. Moscow called the initiative “dangerous”, saying it won’t benefit European security.
The document dubbed ‘Proposal for a US Permanent Presence in Poland’ by the country’s Defense Ministry was leaked online by local media and Politico Europe group at the weekend.

The 39-page document discusses how “extraordinarily strong” Poland-US relations throughout history have been: how Polish people were “remarkably pro-Western” during the Cold war, how they fought against communism and disliked the Soviet Union.

To prove the point, the ministry draws examples of Donald Trumps’ statements, in particular his “landmark” Warsaw address, calling to confront “dire threats to our security.” “A permanent presence of a US armored division in Poland – on dedicated US military installations – will help achieve that goal [set by Trump],” the document read.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why Poland, that is ridiculous; I mean, to imagine that the US could actually build a military base in Poland for only a measly two billion dollars, that is!!

Yes, Poland threw off its Communist yolk years ago; but Russia today is not the old Soviet Union; it has reinvented itself in a modern, progressive way, and there is no threat that Putin would even begin to, or want to, annex Poland.

I think this knee-jerk gesture, on the part of the Polish government, is not seeing Russia for what it has become, but seeing it through the lens of its past activities, and its Soviet history, in the 20th century.

Fake News: Top Liberals Blame Trump for ‘Awful’ Photos of Obama’s Migrant Detention Centers

Democratic politicians, journalists, and top staffers in Barack Obama’s White House whipped themselves into a frenzy Sunday, attributing “disturbing” photos of migrant detention centers to President Donald Trump — before discovering the photos were taken during Obama’s second term as president.
The first wave of viral photos, showing immigrant minors sleeping inside enclosed cages, were featured in an AZCentral.com article — but that didn’t stop far-left activists from decrying the photos.

Obama speechwriter Jon Favreau urged followers to “look at these pictures,” adding that the forcing the Trump administration to return the children to their parents was the “only debate that matters” right now.

Farveau, who later deleted the tweet, admitted to sharing photos taken under his former boss’s watch — but still found a way to shift blame onto the Trump administration.

It appears that the pathological fact-free "logic" of the left, knows no bounds.

ITALY - THE BEGINNING OF THE END OF THE EUROPEAN UNION - BY DEBS IS DEAD

The news out of Italy over the last two days has the potential to completely change the game as it could end in the destruction of the EU.

The original Euro Community was an admirable ideal as it emphasised the rights of all citizens of member states, guaranteeing them a range of protections from unjust and stupid demagogues. Unfortunately the neolib corporatist globalists took over the machinery and turned it over to a gang of cold-hearted technocrats who used the once estimable governance structure to enforce a draconian monetarist policy. - see Greece.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Given its recent history, it was only a matter of when, and not of if, the EU would fail, spectacularly, which it appears to be about to do.

Knives are too sharp and filing them down is solution to soaring violent crime, judge says

A judge has proposed a nationwide programme to file down the points of kitchen knives as a solution to the country’s soaring knife crime epidemic.

Last week in his valedictory address, retiring Luton Crown Court Judge Nic Madge spoke of his concern that carrying a knife had become routine in some circles and called on the Government to ban the sale of large pointed kitchen knives.

Latest figures show stabbing deaths among teenagers and young adults have reached the highest level for eight years, and knife crime overall rose 22 per cent in 2017.

In the past two months, he said, there have been 77 knife-related incidents in Bedfordshire, including three killings.

Judge Madge told the assembled judges, barristers and court staff: “These offences often seem motiveless – one boy was stabbed because he had an argument a couple of years before at his junior school.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This has to be Britain's equivalent Department to the US government's "You Can't make this Stuff UP!!

Does this mean that tougher cuts of meat will now be outlawed in the UK, which have to be cooked for a long time to become tender, and must be carved with sharp knives in order to eat them?!?

NO, Judge Madge, there is a "culture war" going on in UK schools, and that is what has to be fixed, between immigrant children, and the native born Brits. Unless and until that is sorted, the knife crime will continue, unabated.

TOMMY ROBINSON: AN UNWELCOME DEVELOPMENT BEING GROOMED BY AN INCREASINGLY TOTALITARIAN STATE

In the same way – although I do see him more as a rabble-rouser than a racist fanatic – the bizarre denialism of the British Establishment in relation to the nature of Jihadist violence and cultural Islamic rape has helped build the high profile of former English Defence League leader Tommy Robinson.

In case you didn’t know, by the way, Tommy Robinson is not his real name. He was born Stephen Christopher Yaxley-Lennon, and he has also had two other aliases, Andrew McMaster and Paul Harris. His family are themselves immigrants – from Eire.

The British Left denies the dysfunctionality of Islamic culture because the vast majority of such immigrants vote Labour. The Conservative Government denies the same thing because it does not wish to lose the disgusting arms trade it has with the unspeakably cruel Saudi royal family.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have posted this because I believe, IF in fact the facts here are true, that it presents a more balanced, nuanced vision of how and why this incident happened, and why Robinson got locked away by a very dysfunctional British court system and government.

If I didn't know better, I would suggest that Prime Minister May, might have metamorphosed into the spirit of Chancellor Adam Sutler from the film "V for Vendetta"!! (And NO, thank you, I don't believe in violence as a way to resolve things!)

AMAZON ALEXA INSTANTANEOUSLY JUSTIFIES YEARS OF SURVEILLANCE PARANOIA

I'll admit that I traditionally haven't been as paranoid as many people in regards to the surveillance powers of digital assistants like Amazon's Alexa or Google Home. Yes, putting an always-on microphone in your home likely provides a wonderful new target for intelligence agencies and intruders to spy on you. That said, it's not like a universe of internet of broken things or smart TVs aren't doing the same thing, before you even get to the problem with lax to nonexistent privacy standards governing the smartphone currently listening quietly in your pocket and tracking your every location.

That said, nobody should ever labor under the false impression that good opsec involves leaving always on, internet-connected microphones sitting everywhere around your house.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would never have a device like this in our home, period, end of discussion.

UK ARMS SALES TO ISRAEL HIT PEAK, AS PRINCE WILLIAM PLANS VISIT TO JERUSALEM

British defense companies made a record amount of money from selling weapons and military hardware to Israel, anti-arms campaigners’ data shows. New figures were revealed ahead of the royal trip to the country in June.
According to Campaign Against Arms Trade (CAAT), defense contractors made at least £221 million ($294 million) last year from deals with Tel Aviv. That is a significant increase compared to £86 million ($114 million) in 2016. Export licenses to Israel issued by the UK government and tracked down by CAAT cover a wide range of military equipment, ranging from missile components and explosives to body armor and weapon sights.

The news emerges just days after Prince William announced the date of his forthcoming trip to Israel and Palestine. He will arrive on June 25, and is scheduled to travel to Israel’s capital Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and Ramallah, where the Palestinian Authority is based. His tour will be the first-ever official trip of a British royal to Israel.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder; is the now three-times father Prince William going to Israel and Palestine, to get a better idea of what has been going on in this conflict, or is he shilling Tel Aviv to buy more British-made weaponry?!?

I would like to hope the reason is the former, rather than the latter, but only time will tell.

RON PAUL: AMERICA’S INCREDIBLE SHRINKING INFLUENCE

It seems the world has grown tired of neocon threats from Washington. Ironically the “communist” Chinese seem to understand better than the US that in capitalism you do not threaten your customers. While the US is threatening and sanctioning and forbidding economic relations, its adversaries overseas are busy reaping the benefits of America’s real isolationism.

I’ve often spoken of the unintended consequences of our aggressive foreign policy. For example, President Bush’s invasion of Iraq only helped Iran – our “enemy” – become more dominant in the Middle East. But it seems new consequences are emerging, and for the neocons they must be very unintended: for all of its bellicosity, threats, demands, sanctions, and even bombs, the rest of the world is increasingly simply ignoring the demands of Washington and getting on with its own business.

GENE-EDITED SUPER-CROPS TO BE GROWN IN UK FOR THE FIRST TIME

Gene-edited super-crops are to be sown in Britain in a European-first after scientists exploited a legal loophole.

The Government has quietly approved the farming of gene-edited (GE) Camelina oilseed crops as part of a trial to super-charge the plants to produce Omega 3 fish oils, one of the most popular food supplements.

The pilot was approved because, unlike genetically modified (GM) plants, the Camelina oilseed crops contain no foreign DNA. Instead, they had their genetic code altered in a way that could have happened naturally.

Scientists say gene-editing can cut the time it takes to engineer new plants from decades to months. They argue embracing the new technology is vital if Britain is to benefit from GE crops and help maintain a sustainable source of fish oils in face of depleted ocean stocks

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Instead, they had their genetic code altered in a way that could have happened naturally."

But if it DIDN'T happen naturally, how do the scientists believe it "could have"?!?

Playing with the basic building blocks of life (genetic engineering) could well result in an absolute, agricultural, and human, catastrophe here, both to the land, and to the people who ingest this oil.

Drugmakers Blamed for Blocking Generics Have Jacked Up Prices and Cost the US Billions

Makers of brand-name drugs called out by the Trump administration for potentially stalling generic competition have hiked their prices by double-digit percentages since 2012 and cost Medicare and Medicaid nearly $12 billion in 2016, a Kaiser Health News analysis has found.

As part of President Donald Trump's promise to curb high drug prices, the Food and Drug Administration posted a list of pharmaceutical companies that makers of generics allege refused to let them buy the drug samples needed to develop their products. For approval, the FDA requires so-called bioequivalence testing using samples to demonstrate that generics are the same as their branded counterparts.

The analysis shows that drug companies that may have engaged in what FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb called "shenanigans" to delay the entrance of cheaper competitors onto the market have indeed raised prices and cost taxpayers more money over time.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Corporations... and most definitely, drug manufacturers... have the morals of a dead tree stump (and I am going to get emails/texts from dead tree stumps on this one!!).

This is simply, one element of this moral decay. But the other thing, which is perfectly legal in this country, is allowing doctors to prescribe "off book" uses of drug manufacturers' products which have never been tested on a particular condition the patient has, then getting compensated by those drug companies for so doing.

It is a more common practice than you might imagine. At this point in my life, I have no qualms about asking a physician about a prescription, if it is not generic, regarding whether the doctor is getting compensated in some way for prescribing it in an "off book" manner.

‘DON’T CHOKE HIM!’: WITNESSES WATCH IN HORROR AS COPS TASER, CHOKE UNARMED MAN UNTIL HE DIES

West Melbourne, FL — Dramatic cell phone video has emerged of a police involved death this month that took place in broad daylight in front of dozens of witnesses inside a Publix grocery store.

Last Monday, Donald Edward Whitmer Jr. became unresponsive after police placed him in a choke hold and began tasering him. During the altercation, Whitmer lost consciousness and moments later he would be pronounced dead.

The incident began earlier this month at a Publix grocery store in West Melbourne. The manager of the store noticed Whitmer “acting strangely,” so he called police. The first call was at 10:40 a.m., after which Whitmer left.

Several minutes later, however, Whitmer would return and the manager would call police again. The manager told police that Whitmer seemed to be “very confused” and possibly on drugs.

“He’s questioning things but can’t come up with a coherent question,” the manager told 911 dispatchers.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Attorney General Sessions, white courtesy telephone, please!!!

Because unless and until you can prevent incidents like this from happening, courtesy of police departments around this country, you will need to understand, and statistics bear me out on this, there is no war against the police; there appears to be, however, a war against citizens by some members of the police.

There are good cops around this country, and I know because my brother, now retired, was one of those, God bless him. But ALL of America's cops have to play by the rules, and by the book, to prevent this kind of incident from happening.

US FORCES CYPRIOT BANKS TO CRACK DOWN ON ACCOUNTS OF RUSSIAN CLIENTS – REPORT

Russians keeping their cash in Cypriot banks have been caught up in a massive audit of accounts by lenders and watchdogs in the island state. The step was reportedly triggered by pressure from Washington.
Banks in Cyprus now require Russian customers to confirm earnings and tax payments, to produce bank statements for the past year, as well as estate documents, title deeds of business ownership, and a detailed description of their enterprise, according to financial writer Elena Tofanyuk, as quoted by Russian daily Business FM. Previously, Russian clientele were required to produce only a passport and utility bills.

Cypriot banks offer their Russian customers a choice: either to close their accounts or to transfer their funds to Russian Commercial Bank, a subsidiary of Russian state-run lender VTB, the reporter said, citing interviewees who have bank accounts in the country.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

More Russian harrassment/demonization, this time in the Cypress banking system, courtesy of the US government.

What deeply concerns me is how frequently demonization of this kind becomes a prelude to a shooting war, which many in Congress and the Deep State want to have happen against both Russia and China, and soon. Paul Craig Roberts: Washington Plans to Nuke Russia and China

Paul Craig Roberts is no "Chicken Little", declaring that the sky is going to fall; he is one of the most sober-sided, peace-centric political analysts around, and if he is making statements like this in public, it is because he absolutely, and incontrovertibly, believes this to be true.

BELGIUM SAYS DEADLY ATTACK IN LIEGE WAS TERRORIST ATTACK

A stabbing and shooting attack in the eastern Belgian city of Liege has left two police officers and a passer-by dead. Authorities have launched a terror investigation. Belgium remains on edge following several years of extremist Islamist activity.

A gunman stabbed and shot dead two police officers before killing a bystander in the eastern city of Liege on Tuesday, Belgian authorities said. Belgium has been on alert since suicide bombers killed thirty-two people at Brussels airport and in the subway system in 2016.

The media in Belgium reports the following:

The attack happened at around 10.30 a.m. local time (08.30UTC) near a cafe in the Boulevard d’Avroy, located in the administrative district of the city.
The attacker, who was armed with a knife, approached the two female officers from behind and stabbed them several times, before seizing one of their weapons and shooting them dead, prosecutors said.
He then shot dead a 22-year-old man in a vehicle parked nearby.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Hey, Belgium; how's that unrestricted, unvetted immigration system, chock full of rage-enabled Muslims with a strong desire to murder, for utterly no logical reason, working out for you?!?

‘UK behaving like Saudi Arabia’: Geert Wilders calls for release of Tommy Robinson

Anti-Islam Dutch politician Geert Wilders has criticized the arrest of Tommy Robinson, who was detained last week after drawing attention to a trial of an alleged Muslim child abuse gang,“ as an attack on free speech.

"I am here because I am shocked and outraged. What happened in the United Kingdom last week is an absolute disgrace,” the Dutch parliamentarian said while standing outside the UK Embassy in the Hague. “Freedom of speech is being violated all over Europe, and also in Britain. The lights of freedom are going out. Islam critics are taken to court, jailed, or targeted with fatwas.”

People Call On White House To Pardon Oregon Ranchers Steve & Dwight Hammond

A couple of years ago, I introduced you to the Hammon family, a rancher family out of Oregon that was targeted after the patriarch in the family and his son went to jail for doing what ranchers do, setting fires to protect property and livestock. However, in the day and age of unmitigated "terrorism" charges, once they served their sentence the federal government went after both men for more time inside their prison for profit system. Their story ultimately led to the Malheur Wildlife Refuge protest, which led to the murder of LaVoy Finicum. Now, many who have seen what took place both in the Oregon trials and the Bundy Ranch trials are calling on President Donald Trump to issue a pardon for Steve and Dwight Hammond.
According to the White House petition on behalf of Dwight and Steven Hammond by Protect The Harvest:

The Hammond case is viewed by many in the West, and indeed across the nation, as a manifest miscarriage of justice akin to double jeopardy.

Carter Page Speaks Out: This Is How The FBI Ruined My Life

Former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page claims that the FBI has ruined his life - telling the New York Post that "the crimes that have already been committed against President Trump, myself and the entire Trump movement are much worse" than Watergate.

Page details how "Spygate" cost him his business, his income and even his girlfriend.

Page tells The Post that during the media barrage he faced in late 2016, he visited his girlfriend at her London flat, where she was “freaking out with the fake news about me.” -New York Post

“Talking with her later in the evening after dinner, she told me that she didn’t want me staying there anymore, and that our relationship was over... So late that night I booked a last-minute hotel reservation as part of this early chapter of the redefinition of my life.”

EU EXTENDS SANCTIONS AGAINST SYRIA FOR ONE YEAR

The European Union has decided to extend sanctions against Syria by one year, until June 1, 2019, the EU Council said in a statement on Monday.

“On 28 May 2018, the Council extended EU restrictive measures against the Syrian regime until 1 June 2019. Given the ongoing repression of the civilian population, the EU decided to maintain its restrictive measures against the Syrian regime and its supporters, in line with the EU strategy on Syria,” the document read.

The European Union introduced sanctions “against Syria and persons responsible for the violent repression against the civilian population” in May 2011, during the Arab Spring protests, which led to the ongoing civil war in the country.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

No, Sputnik; the ongoing demonstrations and resultant civil war was funded and supported by US funds, training and equipment!!

I am rather surprised that Sputnik got the situation so wrong; it normally is better than this, which is rather... dismaying.

CANADIAN BANKS SAY ‘FRAUDSTERS’ STOLE INFORMATION FROM AT LEAST 40,000 CUSTOMERS

Two Canadian banks warned customers on Monday morning that the personal and financial information of at least 40,000 clients was accessed by criminals.

The affected banks are Simplii Financial—a recently-created brand owned by banking giant CIBC, and which formerly operated as President’s Choice Financial, a grocery store brand—and the Bank of Montreal (BMO). Simplii Financial reportedly has over two million customers, and BMO has more than 12 million clients across its services.

In a statement, Simplii Financial said that the bank is alerting affected customers after it received a tip on Sunday that “fraudsters” may have “electronically accessed” personal and account information for around 40,000 clients. The Bank of Montreal said in a statement that the “fraudsters” themselves contacted the bank on Sunday to let them know they “were in possession of certain personal and financial information for a limited number of customers.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Looks like the Canadian banks are no better at protecting the privacy of their customers than are their American counterparts!!

Since I was a boy, learning to hit pitches from my father, he was my hero and still is.

Leaked Emails: Obama’s WH Used Emotional Propaganda To Push For Gun Control

In the wake of the Sandy Hook elementary school shooting, many assumed then President Barack Obama’s tears were insincere; and it turns out, they were right. Leaked emails prove the Obama White House was using emotional propaganda to brainwash the public into accepting the degradation of their human rights.

Propaganda isn’t new to politicians, but it’s nice to have confirmed what most of us already know: gun control is literally being pushed on us by using emotional brainwashing. Obama advisers sought to “tap people’s emotions” for a huge gun-control push after the Sandy Hook shooting.

“What kind of police state have we become?” tweeted U.K. Independence Party leader and European MP Gerard Batten.

“I am trying to recall a legal case where someone was convicted of a ‘crime’ which cannot be reported on.”

“Where he can be cast into prison without it being possible to report his name, offence, or place of imprisonment for fear of contempt of court,” he added.

2nd American Revolution essential stages: 1) Recognize the US .01% illegal rogue state empire, 2) Speak up, 3) Engage where Life/God gives you battles to offer choice for ‘We the People’

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

“There are three scales of intelligence, one which understands by itself, a second which understands what is shown it by others, and a third which understands neither by itself nor on the showing of others.”~ Niccolò Machiavelli. The Prince, Chapter XXII, page 172 (London: Oxford University Press, 1913) Translated by Ninian Hill Thomson

After 41 years of civic activism to end empire-imposed poverty, history-endured, and Orwellian-illegal Wars of Aggression started with lies known to be lies as they were told, and have truth in media and education, I conclude the role of the awake has been to offer fundamental choices to We the People for standing for virtue or kneeling to evil in either willful complicity or willful disconnection from our Brothers and Sisters’ enslavement as work animals, “food” and sadistic entertainment for evil.

I do my best to artistically represent the human condition here.

War Crimes Committed by Federal Forces During the Civil War

We have all come been taught that Abraham Lincoln was a gentle man, “Honest Abe,” a man who advocated “malice toward none and charity for all.” We have been taught that Lincoln would have opposed the policy pursued by Radical Republicans like Thaddeus Stevens, which pushed for vengeful, retributive policies against the South. We have been taught in books, movies and documentaries that Lincoln instead preferred a policy of healing that neither punished the defeated Confederate government and Army nor average Southern civilians.

Was My Lai just one of many massacres in Vietnam War?

In a war in which lip service was often paid to winning "hearts and minds", the US military had an almost singular focus on one defining measure of success in Vietnam: the body count - the number of enemy killed in action.Very quickly the phrase - "If it's dead and Vietnamese, it's VC" - became a defining dictum of the war and civilian corpses were regularly tallied as slain enemies or Viet Cong.

Civilians, including women and children, were killed for running from soldiers or helicopter gunships that had fired warning shots, or being in a village suspected of sheltering Viet Cong.

At the time, much of this activity went unreported - but not unnoticed.

Decades Of Unconstitutional Wars

Despite United States Congress members insisting that Congress debate and vote on US military actions overseas, congressional leadership has chosen inaction, allowing military actions unilaterally pursued by the executive branch to continue unrestrained.

And, when, this year, consideration has begun to move forward on an authorization for use of military force (AUMF), it is in the form of legislation (S.J.Res. 59) sponsored by Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Corker (R-TN) that would rubber-stamp the US government’s existing wars and sweepingly authorize the executive branch to choose to pursue much more additional military action across the world.

Here’s How The Government Will ‘Calm’ The Public If A Nuclear Attack Occurs - Mac Slavo

The government has already prepared some scripts to use on the terrified public should the United States ever be attacked with a nuclear weapon. The US government prepares for all sorts of threats, but none match the pomp and circumstance they’ll display in the event of a nuclear explosion.

Here’s an example of what the government will tell people to try to prevent widespread panic:

“Lives have been lost, people have been injured, and homes and businesses have been destroyed. All levels of government are coordinating their efforts to do everything possible to help the people affected by this emergency. As lifesaving activities continue, follow the instructions from emergency responders… The instructions are based on the best information we have right now; the instructions will be updated as more information becomes available.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

People need to be prepared for any eventuality, because the Federal Government cannot really protect us, given the reality that the foreign policy decisions being made right now, are engineered to keep this country less safe, and need to take their own precautions.

Compliance to government dictates, should this country manage to get itself into a nuclear exchange, does not necessarily translate into individual survival.

Mattis Tells Air Force Graduates To "Prepare For War"

It was supposed to be a joyous occasion, marking the commencement of a new and better phase in the life of nearly 1000 graduates. Instead, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis told the 984 new lieutenants who are graduating from the U.S. Air Force Academy to prepare for the worst: war.

On Wednesday night, Mattis spoke at the graduation ceremony on the campus outside Colorado Springs and told the 2018 graduates they must be ready to fight and win. The Pentagon chief also told the 60th class to graduate from the academy that they must maintain U.S. military superiority in the air, and urged them to make the Air Force better.

As the ceremony ended, the newly commissioned officers threw their white hats into the sky as the Air Force Thunderbirds roared overhead, a longstanding tradition. Of the nearly 1000 graduates, more than 400 are headed to pilot training, and 69 will be trained to operate drones.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mattis' statement, indicates that these graduates cannot prepare for intelligent, nuanced foreign policy decisions which are going to keep this country safe; not prepare for stability on the world stage, because the US government loves creating instability leading to regime change; but the only thing for which they can prepare is perpetual wars, because the US government has lost the ability to resolve its geopolitical differences in any other way!!

"Unplug Your Alexa Devices Right Now... You're Being Hacked"

That was the disturbing message that a Portland family received just weeks after installing the Amazon listening devices throughout their home.

As KIRO7 reports, Danielle, who did not want us to use her last name, contacted Amazon to investigate after they say a private conversation in their home was recorded by Amazon's Alexa, and that the recorded audio was sent to the phone of a random person in Seattle, who was in the family’s contact list.

"My husband and I would joke and say I'd bet these devices are listening to what we're saying," said Danielle.

After receiving the call above from one of her husband's employees - who was in the family’s contact list - Danielle says she unplugged all the devices, and she repeatedly called Amazon. She says an Alexa engineer investigated.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

NEVER have these devices in your home, period, end of discussion.

Pompeo’s ‘Plan B’ for Iran is ‘designed to put the US’ on a path to 'forcible regime change'

Two weeks ago, President Trump terminated the United States' participation in the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), more commonly known as the Iran nuclear deal," Secretary of State Mike Pompeo started his speech at the Heritage Foundation on Monday.

"President Trump withdrew from the deal for a simple reason," he continued. "It failed to guarantee the safety of the American people from the risks created by the leaders of the Islamic Republic of Iran."

Thus Pompeo began a talk grounded more in fantasy than strategy.

He spoke repeatedly of an Iranian "march across the Middle East," painting Tehran as the mastermind of regional instability which poses an active, existential threat to U.S. friends and allies.

The "path forward," as Pompeo described it, is for Iran to submit to onerous new U.S. sanctions and concede to a long list of demands.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This stance gives the US government very little room to maneouver, and where the only moves left, ultimately, lead to a war against Iran.

And as I have pointed out in a previous post today, as a country which has historically pledged to protect Iran from military invasion, just what will Russia's President Putin be willing to do to prevent such an invasion from happening, or how intensely will he be willing to defend it?!?

I would like to hope that this potential Russian military involvement, against the US, Israel, and Saudi Arabia, is at least keeping someone in the bowels of power up at night in DC, Riyadh, and Tel Aviv right now.

Gaza massacre ends American political oath: Israel support is bipartisan

To be in Israel during a historic massacre, as I was on Monday, is a special experience, and one whose meaning will sink in for a while. I wonder what I will remember in five years’ time, or ten.

This is what I can tell you two days later. All that afternoon in the gathering and protests in the hot sun near the new embassy in South Jerusalem, the latest casualty figures were coming over the phones. “Did you hear, there’s a sea of blood at the border,” a friend had called to inform me at 4, and subsequent texts brought the numbers. 25. “37 dead so far. This country is irredeemable,” wrote my friend. It seemed impossible that the number would grow and yet it did. It was over 50 by the time the protests wound down.

Syria Rejects US Demand for Iranian Pullout

One of the 12 demands issued by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was a complete pullout from Syria of all pro-Iranian forces. Iran hasn’t really had a chance to respond, but Syria has already chimed in, rejecting the idea.

Syrian Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal Mikdad said the matter isn’t even up for discussion, noting that the decision “concerns the sovereignty of Syria.” He added Syria’s government is grateful for the help of Iranian military advisers, as well as Russian troops.

Mikdad further faulted the US for its continued intervention in Syria, and its “support of terrorists in Syria and elsewhere.” The US has troops within Syria, but those troops were not invited by the Syrian government.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Syrian Deputy Minister Mikdad is absolutely correct in his assessment; unfortunately, Pompeo and Bolton will use this as their excuse to escalate the US war in Syria, ultimately translating into wars against Russia and Iran.

All Of Chile's Bishops Offer To Resign After Sex Abuse Cover-Up

All 31 active bishops in Chile offered to resign Friday, following a meeting that Pope Francis called to examine the Chilean clergy's failure to protect children from pedophiles.

The bishops started the conference by thanking the pope for his "brotherly correction" and the victims of sexual abuse for their bravery and perseverance in coming forward. Their statement was read aloud to the press in Spanish and Italian.

"We want to ask forgiveness for the pain we caused victims, the pope, the people of God and our country for the grave errors and omissions that we committed," they said.

"We want to announce that all bishops present in Rome, in writing, have placed our positions in the Holy Father's hands so that he may freely decide regarding each one of us."

It was not immediately clear whether the Pope had accepted the bishops' resignations. He could delay, accept or reject their offer, and the bishops will stay in their jobs until he acts.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What never changes is the institutional culture of child abuse here, which is deeply ingrained in Catholic clergy.

The way the church could get this to stop, is only accepting young men for the seminary who are married. I think that would go a long way to curing the problem.

Because if the 21st century Catholic Church cannot get a handle on this, it will, and should, be sued out of existence.

IRAN LISTS 7 CONDITIONS TO REMAIN IN NUCLEAR DEAL

In his first statement since Pompeo's Wednesday speech, Iran's Supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei set 7 conditions for the European nations if they want Tehran to remain in the agreement.

Khamenei laid out the full list on Twitter on Trump's favorite social media network, remainder of continued on twitter where in a brief tweetstorm, he unveiled the following demands of Europe:

Over the course of 2 years, US violated #JCPOA, several times, while the Europeans remained silent. These 3 European countries should prove that they won’t be as dishonest & untrustworthy as they were during nuclear talks in 2004-2005. Europe needs to compensate for it:
The US has violated Resolution 2231. Europe must issue a resolution against US’s violation [of it].
Europe must guarantee it will not raise the issue of the Islamic Republic's missiles and regional affairs.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation; Europe will not be allowed to acceed to Iran's demands by the US government, meaning that the Iranians will shortly go back to uranium enrichment, which will then be used as the "justification" for a war against it by the US, Israel, and Saudi Arabia.

But this will not happen until Israel uncorks in Lebanon against Hezbullah, and accomplishes "regime change" there, to achieve a more "Israeli-centric" government in Beirut.

So we have, maybe, a couple of months or more, before that happens, and then, the major world war against Iran happens. Look at the attack against Lebanon to come either right before, or right after, the High Holy days in Israel, Rosh Hashana, and Yom Kippur, which are celebrated in September of this year.

June 1st is already upon us week; So watch for 3 months of intense demonisation of Lebanon; Iran, and Russia in the next three months, leading up to an Israeli first strike on Lebanon.

But the big issue in all of this, with Russia having historically claimed that it will defend Iran should it be attacked militarily, is, when Iran is attacked, what will Russia's Putin actually be willing to do to defend it?!?

And lastly, here is a link to Ynetnews.com, with an article which is more than a little unsettling:

HomeWorld NewsIsraeli airstrike hits boat at Gaza port preparing to meet aid flotilla – locals

An airstrike launched by the Israeli military has hit a boat that was moored in Gaza City. The vessel was preparing to meet other boats that were trying to sail through Israel's naval blockade of Gaza, locals say.

The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) said they hit "military targets belonging to the Hamas terror organization's naval force," as well as "underground terror infrastructure." On its official Twitter account, the IDF said it was done in response to a group of people breaking through the Israel-Gaza border and setting a military post on fire.

Gaza residents cited by Reuters said the boat that was set on fire by the Israeli attack was due to sail to meet a flotilla on its way to Gaza. A number of aid flotillas have attempted to breach the Israeli naval blockade of Gaza in recent years, but the vessels have been stopped, seized or turned back. In the most notorious case in 2010, Israeli commandos killed nine activists on board the Turkish ship Mavi Marmara.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have seen the names of participants in these flotilla runs in times past, and they certainly do not look like the names of Hamas members at all; this flotilla is probably no different in its peace activists, advocating for justice for Gazan Palestinians, and who are, of course, in Israel's definition, are "terrorists" for wanting such peace and justice for the Gazan people.

Mueller Rejects Speedy Trial Law To Delay Russian Collusion Trial

It is the second time Mueller tried to delay the trial. Judge Dabney L. Friedrich, a Trump appointee, rejected the earlier request without comment and ordered the case to go forward. (RELATED: Mueller Wants To Flood Russian Collusion Case With 2 Terabytes Of Russian Social Media Content Without Translation)

One of the Russian companies — Concord Management and Consulting — entered the U.S., hired American lawyers, and demanded a speedy trial. The Speedy Trial Act is a 44-year old federal law that dictates that a federal criminal case must begin within 70 days from the date of the indictment.

The “complexity” of the case warrants excluding the speedy trial law and delaying the trial, Mueller argued in Tuesday’s court filing.

A “district court can, on its own motion or at the request of a party, grant an excludable continuance if ‘the ends of justice served by taking such action outweigh the best interest of the public and the defendant in a speedy trial,'” Mueller wrote.

Trump says US military 'is ready if necessary' after Kim Jong Un summit cancellation

President Donald Trump said Thursday that the U.S. military stands "ready if necessary" following his cancellation of a planned summit with North Korea's Kim Jong Un, ramping up already tense rhetoric exchanged between Washington and Pyongyang.

The president, throwing aside his conciliatory rhetoric, called the meeting's cancellation a "great setback for the world." Touting a "greatly enhanced" American military and the power of U.S. allies, Trump warned Kim against taking "foolish or reckless" action.

"I have spoken to South Korea and Japan and they are not only ready should foolish or reckless acts be taken by North Korea, but they are willing to shoulder much of the cost of any financial burden — any of the costs associated by the United States in operations, if such an unfortunate situation is forced upon us," he said during an event at which he signed a bill rolling back bank regulations.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

How completely ironic that the President who brought us "The Art of the Deal" appears to be a man who is pathologically unable to negotiate, at the national level, and keep this country on a peaceful footing around the world.

But I am sure he had help from Bolton and Pompeo, two men who never met a potential war they didn't savor. Pompeo's visit to North Korea, and Bolton's casual reference potentially comparing what happened in Libya to what should happen in North Korea, didn't help matters at all.

So as someone who lives on a first-strike target in the Pacific (China's missiles would decimate these islands), you can color me very nervous all over again.

CANADIANS SUBJECT TO CIA BRAINWASH EXPERIMENTS SEEK DAMAGES

Canadians subjected to CIA brainwashing experiments at McGill University's Allan Memorial Institute are taking legal action against the federal government, demanding a public apology and compensation.

The Survivors Allied Against Government Abuse(SAAGA) group met in Montreal, Canada, on May 20. "The government should offer an apology and there should be recognition of the injustice that was done," said Gina Blasbalg, a patient at the institute in 1960.

Dr. Ewen Cameron, who co-founded the World Psychiatric Association, served as director of the Allan Memorial Institute psychiatric hospital between 1943 and 1964.

Cameron oversaw 'depatterning' and 'psychic driving' experiments which attempted to erase a patient's memories and reprogram them with new thoughts, according to CBC News.

Someone Has Infected At Least 500,000 Routers All Over The World And No One Knows Why

Unknown hackers have reportedly infected at least 500,000 routers and other network devices all over the world with sophisticated and potentially destructive malware—and the Ukrainian government believes Russian hackers may use this botnet in an attack ahead of the Champions League soccer final this week in Kiev.

On Wednesday, Cisco’s subsidiary Talos warned of this new malware campaign, dubbing it “VPNFilter” because that’s the name of the folder where the malware creates and installs itself on the infected devices. Talos researchers wrote that VPNFilter’s most dangerous feature is that it can make the devices it lives on completely unusable thanks to a “kill” command.

“If it suited their goals, this command could be executed on a broad scale, potentially rendering hundreds of thousands of devices unusable, disabling internet access for hundreds of thousands of victims worldwide or in a focused region where it suited the actor's purposes,” the Talos report read.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

How convenient; just when Russian/US governmental relations could hardly get any worse, it appears that Russia is going to get accused of a "cyber 9/11" against Ukraine and potentially beyond.

THE ATTORNEY GENERAL THINKS POLICE HAVING TO FOLLOW THE CONSTITUTION LEADS TO VIOLENT CRIME INCREASES

Attorney General Jeff Sessions is an old-school law and order man. He wants asset forfeiture returned to its former glory -- no longer questioned by all and sundry for its ability to enrich law enforcement agencies without making much of a dent in criminal activity. He wants drug sellers jailed for as long as possible, suggesting the last time he read a policy paper was sometime during the mid-1980s. And he thinks people questioning law enforcement efforts should be ashamed of themselves, what with the dangers faced occasionally by officers whose workplace can't even crack the Top 10 Deadliest Jobs in America list.

Sessions goes where he's wanted when he speaks, ensuring he'll receive applause and accolades, rather than a bunch of "wtfs?" when he delivers bullshit like this:

I believe one of my highest duties is to call attention to your successes, and to encourage our fellow citizens to support you in your difficult and dangerous work.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There are many good, fine cops in this country; I know, because my brother was one of them.

But that being said, things in police work need to be done by the book, honestly and legally.

And this country needs to very honestly, and realistically, have a conversation about why crime has expanded in this country, and to me, there are several reasons.

Unskilled, and even skilled labor, is becomming a thing of the past, with jobs offshored and outsourced to the lowest pricepoint of manufacturing. Poverty is a driver of both desperation and crime.

If this country decriminalized drugs, as has Portugal, the profit margin would become cripplingly bad, and we would see far less crime, and far less profits for drug cartels.

Education needs to become education again, not political indoctrination, with teachers both in control, and rewarded for their work, and kids made excited to come back, and learn more the in the next days and months of the school year ahead. Does anyone remember the Edward James Olmos film, "Stand and Deliver"?!? You should find it, and watch it again, to see what excellence in education can really do.

And lastly, the penal system in our country is engineered to fail, and I say this because the recidivism rate in the US is disgraceful. That has to be fixed in such a way, that when criminals have served their time, they have had some education which gives some hope of finding meaningful employment when they leave prison, and will rejoin society in a meaningful way.

We are very fortunate with the police officers on Oahu; they are, generally, very nice, polite people who do their job with strong professionalism.

Unfortunately, you have stories like the following unfolding all over the country, and this is what Attorney General Sessions critically needs to address, if he wants the American public to have more respect for this country's police:

CIA KNEW TORTURE WAS EXTORTING BAD INTELLIGENCE — KEPT DOING IT ANYWAY

The CIA’s record of torture is front and center in the media again. This time because President Donald Trump’s new CIA Director, Gina Haspel, played a key role in the agency’s program of “enhanced interrogation” (i.e., torture). Haspel was head of station in at least one of the CIA’s black sites in Thailand where torture took place, and also held multiple senior roles at the CIA Counterterrorism Center, which oversaw the torture program.

She was also involved in the destruction of the video recordings of the torture sessions and was less than forthcoming recently with members of Congress who asked about her role in that action.

Nevertheless, the Senate confirmed her. The fact that Haspel, who played a key role in the CIA torture program, made it through the confirmation process fairly easily, signals, at the very least, that the agency should have no problem continuing to shield itself from any outside scrutiny of its treatment of terror suspects in the years after 9/11.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Back during World War II, the Germans had a brilliant interrogator, Hanns Scharff.

The Story of Hanns Scharff

Scharff never indulged in violence of any kind; he used kindness and rewards to gain insight into the British and German prisoners of war he questioned, and frequently brought them out of their prison on day trips for cultural events.

After the war, Scharff was so well thought of, and respected, that the American military invited him to the US to teach his methods to American interrogators.

It is unfortunate that the President and CIA have forgotten (and/or unlearned) that there were other methods, rather than torture, which would give the interrerogator far superior, and actionable, intelligence.

So instead of a Scharff archetype being nominated and confirmed in the position of CIA director, they put a Torquemada archetype in charge instead.

This choice bear ominous witness to what lies ahead for US foreign policy; more and more wars, other than those we cannot seem to be able to win, like Afghanistan and Libya, and ultimately... more torture.

Torture only makes the tortured person say what they believe their torturers want to hear, to get the torture to stop.

And when the US government tortures, or outsources torture, two things happen.

First, the world understands, very clearly, that for all of the political drivel being vomited to the world, about this country's respect for humanitarian values, and the rule of law, when it comes torturing prisoners of war, (which is what these people are), those values and laws get well and truly flushed.

Secondly, when we torture, or outsourcing it, that gives leadership in other countries carte blanche to torture American military members, and American troops.

Please chew on that last one for a while, if you still think torture is a "good idea."

FEDERAL RESERVE: MORE THAN 4 OUT OF 10 AMERICANS DO NOT EVEN HAVE ENOUGH MONEY TO COVER AN UNEXPECTED $400 EXPENSE

The U.S. economy is not doing nearly as well as the mainstream media would have you believe. A few days ago I wrote about a new study that discovered that nearly 51 million U.S. households “can’t afford basics like rent and food”, and just yesterday I discussed the fact that we are on pace for the worst year for retail store closings ever. Now we have just gotten new numbers from the Federal Reserve which are absolutely staggering. According to the Fed’s latest study, more than 4 out of every 10 Americans do not even have enough money to cover an unexpected $400 expense without borrowing the funds or selling something. In essence, nearly half the country has no significant financial cushion whatsoever. So what are all of those people going to do when the next economic crisis hits?

Sadly, living on the edge has become a daily reality for tens of millions of Americans. The following is from a CNN article about the Fed’s new report…

Can you cover an unexpected $400 expense?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

For far too many Americans, this alleged "economic robustness/recovery" (call it what you will) has not arrived at all, and particularly for hourly salaried people, who are seeing their wages get throttled though inflation and ever-higher taxes.

Mike and I were at a local supermarket yesterday, and I was looking at the fish counter. One particular type of tuna was selling for nearly $27.00 per pound, and all the prices seem to have jumped through the roof.

I do not know how families are making it, unless one of the two partners came from roots where slow cooking of cheaper cuts of meat, to make them very tender, was the way things were done.

The Problems of the new Anti-Semitism Awareness Act

The Anti-Semitism Awareness Act of 2018 has been introduced today in Congress. The bill includes an overly-broad, political definition of anti-Semitism, which includes criticism of the state of Israel. The bill should be opposed because it misappropriates a non-legally binding definition for the basis of legal prohibitions, does not combat anti-Semitism, constitutes viewpoint discrimination, and is unconstitutional as being overly broad.

Italian parents who named their daughter Blu must change it to a 'traditional girl's name' – or have one imposed by the court

Blu's mother Vittoria, who met her partner Luca three years ago, said: 'Since the first day Luca told me he wanted to call his daughter Blu and I chose Blu because It is the colour of the fifth chakra.'

For the girl's dad Luca, Blu stands for 'bella luminosa unica', which in English means beautiful, vibrant and unique.

He told Il Giorno: 'If we don't show up with an alternative, a judge will decide our daughter's name for us.'

The bizarre case came about because of a presidential decree that all newborns should have gender appropriate names.

In the interest of peace Putin has avoided responding to US and Israeli provocations in Syria. Putin went so far as to invite the war criminal and genocidal maniac Netanyahu to Russia for the celebration of Russia’s victory over Germany in World War II. Netanyahu accepted, but showed Putin who is boss by ordering illegal Israeli military attacks on Syrian army positions just prior to his departure for Russia.

Amazon defends giving its Big Brother-style facial recognition tool to police claiming 'our quality of life would be much worse' without AI watching our movements

Amazon has defended giving its Big Brother-style facial recognition tool to police following an outcry from civil rights groups.

The response comes just hours after it emerged Amazon's facial recognition tool, dubbed 'Rekognition', is being used by law enforcement agencies in Oregon and Florida.

However, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) warns Rekognition could be misused to identify and track innocent people in real-time.

It claims the software guide for the AI 'reads like a user manual for authoritarian surveillance'.

If ‘We the People’ fail .01% arrests for OBVIOUS crimes annually killing millions, harming billions, looting trillions, the US will become just another failed and forgotten empire promising ‘freedom’

“2,000 years from now, will students of ancient history ask, ‘Do we have to know what the United States was for the test?’” ~ paraphrase of Professor Rufus Fears

“It is no use trying to escape their arrogance by submission or good behavior. Robbers of the world, having by universal plunder exhausted the land, their drive is greed. If the enemy be rich, they are rapacious; if poor, they lust for domination. Neither rule of the East nor West can satisfy them. Alone among men, they crave with equal eagerness poverty and riches. To plunder, slaughter, seize with false pretenses, they give the lying name ‘empire.’ And where nothing remains but a desert, they call that ‘peace.’ ” – Tacitus, The Agricola and the Germania (analyses here, here)

The United States is the most dangerous illegal rogue state empire in human history. Among the damning facts:

Dozens of foreign ISIS brides sentenced to death in Iraq

Dozens of foreign ISIS brides are being sentenced to death in Iraq as the country exacts its revenge after three years of jihadi occupation.

Pleading that they themselves are victims, the women were given 10 minutes to beg for their lives before judges decide their sentence.

Many of them find little sympathy with the Iraqi judiciary and locals and are despised for their support of their militant husbands, who tore the country apart between 2014 and 2017.

French citizen Djamila Boutoutao, 29, appeared in court last month and claimed: “I thought I had married a rapper. It was only when we arrived in Turkey for a week-long ‘holiday’ that I discovered my husband was a jihadist.”

“I’m a victim. My husband beat me and locked me up in a cave with my children when I refused to follow him (to Iraq).”

She reappeared in court again last week alongside 14 other women, The Guardian reported, where she begged to keep her daughter.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These women, and most probably their children, will be murdered by the Iraqi government, demonstrating that the Muqtada coalition is just as barbaric and midieval regarding issues pertaining to women, as were their predecessors.

They were, in many cases, victims of men who played and betrayed them, not revealing their jihadi affiliations until after they had been married to these guys.

And hey, Amal Clooney; we know where you and your husband were last weekend, attending the royal wedding of the Duke and Dutchess of Sussex; where the hell are you now, in a human rights case, that is screaming your name?!?

the short answer is, NOWHERE.
