Top 5 Stories Buried Or Deliberately Ignored By Mainstream Media In 2017

As public trust in the mainstream media continues to fall to a new all-time low each year, it may come as no surprise that the same outlets promising to provide you with “fair and balanced” coverage, are actually censoring truth and feeding you content that is approved by their social interests. However, as social media becomes more prevalent, it is even more obvious when the MSM ignores the most crucial stories. Here are the top 5 stories the mainstream media missed in 2017:

Dangers of Government Control … Especially to the internet

The United States has been the world leader in the development of internet technology precisely because it has been relatively unfettered by federal and state regulation. The best thing that the U.S. Congress can do for internet entrepreneurs and internet consumers is to send the FCC out to pasture as it did with the Civil Aeronautics Board, which regulated the airline industry, and the Interstate Commerce Commission, which regulated the trucking industry. When we got rid of those regulatory agencies, we saw a greater number of competitors, and consumers paid lower prices. Giving the FCC the same medicine would allow our high-tech industry to maintain its world leadership position.

Liberty Will Prevail in 2018 — Despite setbacks, says Ron Paul.

The “opposition party” doesn’t really oppose the other party’s policies. They are just angry that other the party is in power. With no real philosophical or policy differences, politics is essentially pointless. It is a game of spoils for the well-connected and little more than a sporting event for the rest of the country. Everyone wants to see his team come out on top.

10,000+ sealed Federal indictments, 8-minute video: .01% arrests about to end US illegal rogue state empire as sexual harassment stories prepare public for psychopathic evil darker than killing millions, harming billions, looting trillions

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

A month ago, there were ~5,000 sealed Federal indictments. Now there are over 10,000 (here and screen captured on Dec 31). The usual amount of sealed Federal indictments for an entire year is a few hundred according to this data sampling.

So what does this mean?

The Next Empire How long will the declining US last?

Historically, once an empire has been shot from its perch, it’s replaced by a rising power—one that’s more productive and more forward thinking in every way. Yet the US is hanging on tenaciously, and like any dying empire, its leaders are becoming increasingly ruthless, both at home and abroad, hoping to keep up appearances.

The Great Flood Of Freedom Grabbing Legislation in 2018

The second session of the 115th Congress is now upon us, and it is as clear as ever that anti-gun members of Congress just don’t get it. Law-abiding Americans are tired of being scapegoats for the acts of criminals and terrorists.

Neocon War Criminal Tells CNN Viewers to Trust Media Because It Lies

Neocon architect David Frum, a man who spearheaded the Iraq WMD war, a man who has never gotten anything right on geo-politics, but has used mainstream media to push his war hawk agenda, (much to the detriment of America and the world), is now on CNN telling viewers to trust mainstream media because they make so many mistakes and lie so much.

Washington DC’s role behind the scenes in Hollywood goes deeper than you think

The US government and Hollywood have always been close. Washington DC has long been a source of intriguing plots for filmmakers and LA has been a generous provider of glamour and glitz to the political class.

But just how dependent are these two centres of American influence? Scrutiny of previously hidden documents reveals that the answer is: very.

We can now show that the relationship between US national security and Hollywood is much deeper and more political than anyone has ever acknowledged.

The secret deals which shaped our lives: How big businesses got together to make sure your light bulb wouldn't last, you'd always want a newer car, and you'd always go back on a diet

Author Jacques Peretti has shed light on the backroom deals between big businesses that have ultimately shaped the way we eat, shop, and even choose medication.

His latest book, The Deals That Made the World: Reckless Ambition, Backroom Negotiations, and the Hidden Truths of Business, set to be released in March 2018, reveals details of the secret meeting that took place in Geneva that made nearly every product obsolete.

Peretti also lifts the lid on the invention of the multi-billion-dollar diet industry, which came about after a health insurance clerk was struggling to keep up his numbers.

‘US is watching!’: Trump warns Iran amid crackdown on protests (VIDEO)

Trump is a neocon idiot,who loves Israel and is in the process of getting our country destroyed. Everyone knows this is another attempt to overthrow the Iranian government using another Colored Revolution!

Donald Trump has issued a strongly worded tweet warning Iran that “the US is watching” following the deaths of 20 people in anti-government protests that are sweeping the country.

Meanwhile, a spokesman for Iran’s foreign ministry has hit back at the US president, saying that Trump should focus on his own country rather than tweet about civil unrest abroad.

"Instead of wasting his time sending useless and insulting tweets regarding other countries, he would be better off seeing to the domestic issues of his own country such as daily killings of dozens of people... and the existence of millions of homeless and hungry people," Bahram Ghasemi said, according to AFP.

Google Hiring 10,000 Certified Morons to Further Throttle Free Speech

Google is escalating its campaign of internet censorship, announcing that it will expand its workforce of human censors to over 10,000, the internet giant announced on December 4. The censors’ primary focus will be videos and other content on YouTube, its video-sharing platform, but will work across Google to censor content and train its automated systems, which remove videos at a rate four times faster than its human employees.

Who Are the Leading State Sponsors of Terrorism?

The reality is that terrorism, defined by the United Nations as “criminal acts intended or calculated to provoke a state of terror in the general public,” is most employed at the state level by the United States and its allies Israel and Saudi Arabia, not by Iran. All have used violence directed against civilians in places like Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Yemen and Lebanon, and all three have supported organizations that fit the definition of terrorists. Iran may indeed be guilty of actions that much of the world disapproves of, but it is not the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism as has been alleged.

How Much Death and Destruction Awaits us in 2018? — Paul Craig Roberts.

Throughout the Western world politics has degenerated into fraud. No government serves the public’s interest. Except for some former Soviet satellites in Eastern Europe, European governments have defied the will of the people by admitting vast numbers of refugees from Washington’s wars and others pretending to be refugees. The European governments further imperil their citizens with their support for Washington’s rising aggression toward Russia. The universal failure of democratic politics is leading directly to war.

Dealing With North Korea

If I were President of the United States,this is how I would deal with Kim Jong-un and the North Korean situation.

First, realize that Un’s theatrics are, from his own point of view, perfectly rational. He is not stupid. He looks at what happened to Muammar Gaddafi of Libya; murdered by mobs after kow-towing to the Great Satan. He notes the demise of Saddam Hussain of Iraq, another country that got on the wrong side of our imperialist nation; a similar dismal end befell him, too. It does not take much brain power to realize that Un’s only hope of escaping a similar fate would be, roughly, the one he has adopted: belligerence, nuclear armament, bellicosity, etc.

Here is what to do about the situation.

In 2017, Nearly 100 Times More Americans Were Killed by Police Than Terrorists

Aside from the lack of punishment, the job description of a cop has changed drastically following the onset of the drug war. Police have morphed into a standing army using the same weaponry and tactical gear that can be found on the battlefield in one of the many countries occupied by the United States military. They are actively engaging otherwise entirely innocent and peaceful citizens in this war on drugs which makes the people the enemy.

US Military’s Shortcomings: Most Expensive Does Not Mean Best

Despite being the leader in military spending, the US military has very serious shortcomings. It is mired in problems. Military planning deficiencies greatly reduce combat capabilities. Cost-effectiveness is a big problem. Being the most expensive does not automatically make the US military the best.

US Prepares for Forcible Entry Operations in Remote Theaters of War

Professionals study logistics, amateurs study tactics!

The facts and events summed up above are not front-page stories. They don’t tell much separately but tell a lot when put together and systematized. They lead to believe the United States is urgently preparing for a truly big war waged far away from its borders. The US military is sized, organized, and globally postured to fight it. A doctrine of expanding forces is not as straightforward as producing more fighters and weapon systems. Nothing is possible without logistics. That’s what is given the highest priority as the preparations are intensified.

How Donald Trump Learned to Love War in 2017

The president promised to deliver peace. But in his first year, he expanded every war he inherited.

President Trump has maintained or expanded the wars that he inherited from his predecessor.

As Jennifer Wilson and I pointed out in an appropriately titled column in August, “Donald Trump Is Dropping Bombs at Unprecedented Levels.” Within eight months of assuming office, Trump — with the announcement of six “precision aistrikes” in Libya — had bombed every country that former President Barack Obama had in eight years. One month after that, the United States surpassed the 26,172 bombs that had been dropped in 2016. Through the end of December 2017, Trump had authorized more airstrikes in Somalia in one year (33), than George W. Bush and Obama had since the United States first began intervening there in early 2007 (30).

Trump, Republican Allies Endorse Iranian Protesters

U.S. President Donald Trump and Republican lawmakers offered implicit support on Sunday to tens of thousands of Iranians protesting against the Islamic Republic’s unelected clerical elite and Iranian foreign policy in the Middle East.
***
Trump’s endorsement of some of the protesters’ aims differs from how his predecessor, Barack Obama, initially reacted to the widespread “Green Movement” demonstrations that rocked Iran in 2009.

Obama at first muted his response, fearing that support from Washington could backfire and allow the Iranian government to paint the protesters as tools of the United States.

Some Iranian officials already are blaming “foreign agents” for the latest unrest.

Trump has taken a more hawkish line with Tehran than Obama.>>>

The DHS has illegally stuffed America's airports full of $1B worth of shitty, malfing facial-recognition tech

More than a dozen major US airports are now covered in facial-recognition cameras, installed by the DHS to scan people departing on international flights without the legally mandated federal review process. The cameras suck, too: "the systems erroneously reject as many as 1 in 25 travelers using valid credentials." At that rate, 1,632 people flying out of JFK alone every day would be falsely flagged as potential criminals and subjected to additional screening.

Facebook Says it is Deleting Accounts at the Direction of the U.S. and Israeli Governments

IN SEPTEMBER OF LAST YEAR, we noted that Facebook representatives were meeting with the Israeli Government to determine which Facebook accounts of Palestinians should be deleted on the ground that they constitute “incitement.” The meetings – called for and presided over by one of the most extremist and authoritarian Israeli officials, its pro-settlement Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked – came after Israel threatened Facebook that its failure to voluntarily comply with Israeli deletion orders would result in the enactment of laws requiring Facebook to do so, upon pain of being severely fined or even blocked in the country.

2017 Police Violence Report

1,129 killings by police in 2017. 92% were killed by police shootings. Tasers, physical force, and police vehicles accounted for most other deaths. Compiling information from media reports, obituaries, public records, and databases like Fatal Encounters and the WashingtonPost, this report represents the most comprehensive accounting of deadly police violence in 2017. Our analysis suggests the majority of killings by police in 2017 could have been prevented and that specific policies and practices might prevent police killings in the future.

Meet the new boss… Trump’s first-year approval rating mirrors Obama’s

As Red State reports, the 2017 Poynter Media Trust Survey found that fully 44 percent of Americans believe media outlets fabricate negative stories about Trump in an effort to discredit him. Among that 44 percent 24 percent say that about half of all negative stories about Trump are made up. Another 14 percent believe most negative stories about Trump are false, and another 6 percent say they all are. Imagine where Trump’s approval ratings would be if the mainstream media reported honestly.

If a Sacrifice Must Be Made, Gun Banners Always Choose You

Now, as ever, this attempt must be resisted. Americans are not talismans to be pushed around the board in a vain attempt to placate the devil, and their rights are not squares on some bureaucrat’s Rubik’s Cube. That the opponents of the Second Amendment lack imagination and discipline is regrettable. That they would translate their shortcomings into law is jeopardous. If everything is a case for gun control, then nothing is. No case for constraints was made in Texas.

Stockman: US Fiscal Path Will Rattle the Rafters of the Casino

As we’ve reported, the US government is spending money like a drunken sailor. But nobody really seems to care. Since Nov. 8, the US national debt has risen $1 trillion.

Former Reagan budget director David Stockman said this makes no sense in a rational world, and he thinks the FY 2019 is going to sink the casino.

Trump Foreign Policy (Little Change)

So the Donald Trump National Security Strategy will be more of the same, a combination of the worst ideas to emerge from his two predecessors with little in the way of mitigation. Trump might balk at going toe-to-toe with North Korea because they have the actual capability to strike back and might think they have nothing to lose if they are about to be incinerated, something no bully likes to see, but Iran is certainly in the cross hairs and you best believe they have taken notice and will be preparing. Vladimir Putin too can sit back and wonder how Trump could possibly have gotten everything so ass-backwards when he had so much latitude to get at least some things right. The National Security Strategy will deliver little in the way of security but it will provide an answer to why most of the world has come to hate the United States.

Facebook is censoring people the US government sanctions

Sam Greene, the director of Kings College London’s Russia Institute, pointed out that the move has serious implications for freedom of speech:

As happy as I am to see Kadyrov disappear from the ether, this is an atrocious policy. Allowing the US gov't to determine who can and cannot be visible online is censorship, and it undermines the ability of the existing net infrastructure to be a truly neutral global platform. https://t.co/In0To2yucZ

ACHTUNG: PALESTINIAN REACTION TO TRUMP IS ANTISEMETIC

The Trump Peace Plan: US ENVOY: PALESTINIAN REACTION TO TRUMP ANNOUNCEMENT IS UGLY, ANTISEMITIC

Some of the Palestinian rhetoric in response to President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem has been “ugly, needlessly provocative and antisemitic,” US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman told The Jerusalem Post this week.

Friedman, a leading force behind Trump’s decision three weeks ago to recognize Jerusalem and move the US embassy there from Tel Aviv, characterized the Palestinian reaction as “largely emotional,” saying they “unfortunately overreacted” because Trump made clear that the US was “not taking a position on any final-status issues>>>

(*NO READER IT'S NOT YOU! In regards to Trump naming Jerusalem The Capital of Israel , ambassador Friedman said OUT LOUD that Trump made clear that the US was “not taking a position on any final-status issues, including the specific boundaries of the Israeli sovereignty in Jerusalem.”

Jewish settlers stormed a Palestinian school in the occupied West Bank on Thursday morning and assaulted students and teachers, according to a prominent Palestinian official.

THIS IS WHAT AN ARREST FOR A BICYCLE HELMET “VIOLATION” LOOKS LIKE IN A POLICE STATE

A video uploaded to Facebook last week shows the ridiculous nature of the American police state.

According to the video uploader, the police in the video below came to this house because they saw a teenager riding his bike with no hands and without a helmet. Not wanting to be kidnapped or killed, the teenager rode his bike home after he saw the police.

When police showed up, you’d think they were responding to a bank robbery or child kidnapping. However, the half-dozen public servants were only there to extort money from a child for not wearing a helmet.

During the standoff, the family knew that their child was going to be kidnapped by police, so they initially refused to hand him over. After several threats, however, the boy would eventually come outside.

The officers blatantly lied to the family, saying only that they wanted him to come outside to receive his citation for no helmet. But after walking out, he’s immediately placed in cuffs and put into a patrol car.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Policing in this country, in general, are about shakedowns and lies by those same members the police who swear to protect and serve those in their community.

It is very simple; people get jailed, or fined, or worse, over alleged activities they are doing, then get their lives and busineses justget casually demolished and destroyed in a way that only the Deep American State can do, and which, every moment, are headed down a further downward slide.

The Trump Peace Plan: Israeli Court Sentences 68-Year-Old Bedouin Citizen to 10 Months in Prison – for Trespassing His Own Land

The Bedouin village of Al Araqib in the southern Negev has been demolished for well over 100 times. Its ethnic cleansing follows a similar pattern and logic to that of other Bedouin villages such as Umm Al Hiran, which saw violent ethnic cleansing operations this year, also involving extrajudicial execution of an Israeli Bedouin citizen.

Now the state reaches new heights of Kafkaesque madness: Sheikh Saih Abu Madiam, 68, is sentenced to 10 months in prison, 5 additional months of conditional imprisonment, as well as a fine of 36,000 Shekels (over $10,000), as Haaretz reported (Hebrew).

The offense: Abu Madiam has supposedly trespassed state land – which he claims is his own.

Al Araqib is one of the nearly 40 “unrecognized” Bedouin villages in the Negev. They are unrecognized, because the state expropriated the lands, and refused to recognize the dwelling places of people who have been there long before the state was established>>>

The Lincoln Putsch: America's Bolshevik Revolution

Union General Franz Sigel had been a leader in the communist Revolution of 1848, a revolution fought to destroy the individual state governments of Germany, and forciby unite them under an all-powerful central, socialist government. Thanks to some inept leadership, part of it provided by the young Sigel, that revolution failed and Sigel, along with thousands of other "forty-eighters," fled Europe for America, bringing their revolutionary socialist ideas with them.

Carl Shurz was another forty-eighter, who had met Karl Marx at the Democratic Club in Cologne. Schurz later went on to deliver the votes of 300,000 German immigrants to Lincoln in 1860. He was rewarded with an appointment as ambassador to Spain.

Lincoln: America's Highjacker

Notice the sides of Lincoln’s throne, above? Those bundles of sticks are an ancient Roman contrivance called a fasces, from which we get the word fascism.

Lincoln is still a much-revered figure to millions of ignorant Americans who were programmed in government schools. But an exciting new trend has begun: more Americans are learning that, like Russians and Chinese, we were lied to in school. The most destructive fraud promulgated by American schools is that Abraham Lincoln was a great president. In truth, as you’ll learn here, Lincoln was the most monstrous, ruthless, destructive president in our history.

Americans are completely ignorant of the affinity that Abraham Lincoln had for Karl Marx and his Communist system. As Americans banish the Confederate flag, those who think Lincoln was a hero are as ignorant of our history as the average Russian citizen is, of his.

Vietnam unveils 10,000-strong cyber unit to combat 'wrong views'

Communist-ruled Vietnam has stepped up attempts to tame the internet announcing a new, 10,000-strong military cyber warfare unit.

The cyber unit, named Force 47, is already in operation in several sectors, Tuoi Tre newspaper quoted Lt. Gen. Nguyen Trong Nghia, deputy head of the military's political department, as saying at a conference of the Central Propaganda Department on Monday in the commercial hub of Ho Chi Minh City.

"In every hour, minute, and second we must be ready to fight proactively against the wrong views," the paper quoted the general as saying.

Vietnam has stepped up calls for closer watch over social networks and for the removal of content that it deems offensive, but there has been little sign of it silencing criticism when the companies providing the platforms are global.

US SPY SATELLITES CATCH CHINESE SHIPS ILLEGALLY SELLING OIL TO NORTH KOREA

A government source said, “We need to focus on the fact that the illicit trade started after a UN Security Council resolution in September drastically capped North Korea’s imports of refined petroleum products.” Meanwhile, on paper, China’s trade with North has recently collapsed after U.S. President Donald Trump unleashed a barrage of sanctions in September targeting North Korea’s imports of refined petroleum products.

Back in November, the US. Treasury Department sanctioned an additional six North Korean shipping and trading companies and 20 of their ships after the satellite pictures surfaced. In the above picture, the North Korean ship named Ryesonggang 1, was easily identified and connected to the illegal sale of oil from China.

According to Chosun Media, "the department noted that the two ships appeared to be illegally trading in oil from ship to ship to bypass sanctions."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This puts China on the horns of a dilemma, as she really, really cannot interdict all transactions, unless she puts herself on a blockade on North Korea, which is what the US government sees as something they want to see happen.

Joe Biden bluntly demanded that former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich resign back in 2014, the former US vice president revealed. He also confirmed the US was deeply involved in Kiev’s affairs during that year’s crisis.

From the very beginning of the Ukrainian crisis, the US sought to direct Yanukovich in his handling of the riots on Maidan Square that eventually led to a coup in Ukraine, Biden says in his new book titled “Promise Me, Dad: A Year of Hope, Hardship And Purpose,” which was published in November, but has now been brought into the media spotlight in connection with the US’s role in the crisis. Biden reveals that he repeatedly called the then-Ukrainian president, telling him what he should or should not do.

GAS WAR - EASTERN MEDITERRANEAN MAY BE SCENE OF FIRST CONFLICT OF 2018

The eastern Mediterranean is expected to witness the first conflict of 2018, as developments at the end of 2017 are signaling worsening relationships between Turkey and the Greek Cypriot-Greece-Israel-Egypt bloc. Territorial disputes over natural gas and newly discovered hydrocarbon reserves in the eastern Mediterranean basin are the reason.

Up until a few years ago, the hope was that these hydrocarbon reserves would offer a real opportunity for a peaceful settlement of the Cyprus conflict. But these optimistic hopes vanished with both Turks and Greek Cypriots unilaterally speeding up exploration and drilling operations.

In 2004, the European Union had declared the Greek Cypriots the sole entity representing the island of Cyprus and accepted it as an EU member. Feeling that its hand has been strengthened following the EU decision, the Greek Cypriots claimed the right of natural resources exploration in the Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) around Cyprus.

any massive conflicts over oil in the region will cause oil prices to soar.

Political Immorality and Personal Immorality

Many Americans have been shocked by recent revelations of the extent of sexual harassment in Congress. However, no one should be too surprised that those who spend their lives defending and expanding the welfare-warfare state engage in immoral personal conduct. It is only natural that an immoral system, like the welfare-warfare state, tends to attract individuals likely to practice personal immorality.

The welfare-warfare state is built on a foundation of taxation and fiat currency controlled by a secretive central bank. While some type of taxation may be necessary to fund the few legitimate functions of government, taking people’s money to fund a redistributive welfare state at home and a global empire abroad is nothing more than theft. The Federal Reserve’s erosion of purchasing power is also a form of theft.

Intelligence Community Says US Had Better Reauthorize Surveillance… Or Else

The editorial board of the Washington Post, whose sole owner is a CIA contractor, has published a predictably fact-challenged op-ed arguing that congress must reauthorize the Orwellian surveillance program known as Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, which is deliberately used to collect communications of US citizens.

WaPo, which to this day continues to violate universal journalistic protocol by refusing to disclose its $600 million conflict of interest when reporting on the US intelligence community, just so happens to once again find itself in full agreement with that same US intelligence community. In a new joint statement by the Director of National Intelligence Daniel Coats, CIA Director Mike Pompeo, FBI Director Christopher Wray, NSA Director Michael Rogers, and Attorney General Jeff Sessions, the US intelligence community warns that should congress fail to reauthorize Section 702, something very, very bad may happen to America.

Star Wars Last Jedi: Disney kills wisdom, love & evolution to offer endless war, controlled/enslaved peoples, empty hope. Corporate media reviews: 92%, audiences 52% favorable

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

“How do democracies get turned into dictatorships? The democracies aren’t overthrown; they’re given away… Star Wars was really about the Vietnam War.” – George Lucas, creator of Star Wars
“The (Star Wars) Empire is like America ten years from now.” – George Lucas, 1973
Disney is corporate media, with corporate media and public education as propaganda arms for ongoing lying and illegal US rogue state empire. George Lucas wrote Star Wars in protest and warning that the US is the evil empire in that story. Therefore, and obviously, corporate media had to target, attack, and end that Star Wars story, and replace it with cheerleading for endless empire, endless war, and no hope for virtue.

30-minute video: American ‘patriotism’ is Stockholm Syndrome to ongoing US .01% lying, illegal rogue state empire. Real patriots demand .01% arrests for annually killing millions, harming billions, looting trillions

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

Larken Rose demonstrates that American unthinking loyalty to flag, “troops,” and other knee-jerk obedience is embrace of literal dictates (what is said), rather than genuine patriotism to protect and defend God-given rights in a sharp 30 minutes:

My contributions include documentation and clear explanation of the .01% lying and illegal US rogue state empire to fully support Larken’s points:

It is necessary to break with the bondage banking scam known as interest

Brazil is a colony of bankers. Its true rulers are not the elected ones, they are the permanent caste of the rentistas, of the usurious ones, of the landowners and of the great businessmen.

It is for the sake of this caste that politicians rule.

It is on their behalf that politicians legislate.

The political class, as a whole, is in the hands and pockets of the parasitic capitalist caste. Anything done in favor of the people, either is by mere accident or is because the interests of this breed coincidentally coincide with some interest of the people.

Americans Are Only Now Beginning To Learn That We Live In A Dictatorship

***
>>>Only the forms of corruption which are available only to the super-rich are legal in America. That’s the reason why the super-rich keep getting still-richer, while the rest of the population are lucky if they don’t become poorer.

On 28 July 2015, former US President Jimmy Carter was frank about this situation; as a caller at a progressive radio show, he said this about America’s soaring top-level corruption:

It violates the essence of what made America a great country in its political system. Now it's just an oligarchy with unlimited political bribery being the essence of getting the nominations for president or being elected president. And the same thing applies to governors, and US Senators and congress members. So, now we've just seen a subversion of our political system as a payoff to major contributors, who want and expect, and sometimes get, favors for themselves after the election is over. ... At the present time the incumbents, Democrats and Republicans, look upon this unlimited money as a great benefit to themselves. Somebody that is already in Congress has a great deal more to sell."

Three days later, Huffington Post published my article about that statement, which was headlined “Jimmy Carter Is Correct That the US Is No Longer a Democracy”>>>

Private sidewalks in Westport cause mixed emotions for business owners, KC residents

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Westport business owners are hoping private sidewalks will bring people back to the KC neighborhood, but not everyone is convinced the privatization is a good thing.

Weekend nights from 11 p.m. to 4 a.m., anyone coming into the heart of Westport will be carded and must go through a metal detector. Purses will also be screened, and no weapons will be allowed.
There has been pushback from civil rights leaders concerned about profiling.

A second ordinance was also passed Thursday, addressing that concern. At each entrance, there will be a third-party civil rights monitor to ensure it is a fair process.

US Naval Blockade Would Be ‘Act of War,’ North Korea Warns

With no real possibility that US sanctions against North Korea will have any real teeth, since the US doesn’t have any trade or diplomatic ties to start with, the struggle to figure out what the US could conceivably do to North Korea has mostly centered on military attacks.

But there are other acts of war possible, and some in the US seem to be advocating a naval blockade of the whole of North Korea, figuring that would be one way to ensure that there’s literally no trade possible.

Blockading an entire country that size would be no msall task, despite the large amounts of US naval assets in the area. That North Korea also has direct links to both China and Russia, their main trading partners, also limits what a blockade could really do, beyond being a declaration of war.

JUSTICE DEPARTMENT CLAIMS THAT INCREASING TRAFFIC STOPS BY 56% WILL LOWER CRIME

In what can only be described as organized government theft our justice system has devised a new way to take money and liberty from minorities.

As you will see, police are using traffic citations to help balance budgets.

According to an article by Fox 6 Now, Milwaukee law enforcement claimed that increasing traffic stops by 56% resulted in a reduction in violent crime.

City-wide, crime has declined including non-fatal shootings (down 29 percent), robbery (down 9 percent), and motor vehicle theft (down 25 percent)
City-wide, crashes have declined 6 percent
Traffic stops have increased 56 percent, traffic stops resulting in a citation have increased 111 percent and crashes have declined 12 percent
Traffic tickets have increased 136 percent

Law enforcement also claims that increasing traffic stops by 136% has 'got the public's attention'. Police chief Ed Flynn said, "we want to keep it so we affect the driving behaviors." .

Webmaster's Commentary: 

To the police of these cities, doing these kinds of activities, civil assets forreitures have neverlooked so attractive, or so criminally easy.

President Trump’s Next Move Should be Pulling Out of the United Nations Small Arms Trade Treaty?

This UN agreement nullifies our second amendment if ratified by the US Senate. So I ask the President to remove our signature from the UN Small Arms Trade Treaty so this treaty never comes to the floor for a vote on the Senate floor.

How Facebook’s Political Unit Enables the Dark Art of Digital Propaganda

Under fire for Facebook Inc.’s role as a platform for political propaganda, co-founder Mark Zuckerberg has punched back, saying his mission is above partisanship. “We hope to give all people a voice and create a platform for all ideas,” Zuckerberg wrote in September after President Donald Trump accused Facebook of bias.

Zuckerberg’s social network is a politically agnostic tool for its more than 2 billion users, he has said. But Facebook, it turns out, is no bystander in global politics. What he hasn’t said is that his company actively works with political parties and leaders including those who use the platform to stifle opposition—sometimes with the aid of “troll armies” that spread misinformation and extremist ideologies.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These services are not about “We hope to give all people a voice and create a platform for all ideas,” it is the zero-sum approach to creating power, then maintaining it... by any means necessary.

Popular Texas blogger scooped police on a story. They charged her with 2 felonies and searched her phone records.

She calls herself Lagordiloca, the fat crazy lady. Some know her as the nightcrawler. When the sun goes down on Laredo, Texas. Priscilla Villarreal combs the streets in her blue Dodge Ram looking for crime scenes and live-streaming police activity from her cellphone. She usually doesn’t make it home until dawn.

Couple forced to kiss goodbye following 69 year marriage after getting sent to separate care homes (Canada's Paradise)

"My mother said “Christmas is over for us now and this is the worst Christmas that we will ever have. Why could they not have waited till after the holidays.” I assured her that I tried everything to keep them together a few more days. My parents have been together for a total of 73 years and still sleep in the same bed. I feel people need to know what a flawed system we have in place. Two words describe it “unethical and cruel”.

Jared Kushner Belongs To Rothschild’s Doomsday Cult

Trump’s son-in-law and senior advisor Jared Kushner belongs to an elite doomsday cult that boasts the Rothschilds as members and is trying to foment a “prophesied” third world war.

Chabad Lubavitch is a Jewish supremacist cult that serve the Illuminati. Despite only having 200,000 elite followers, it has intimate ties to nearly every powerful government leader on earth.

Look, if Trump adopts a pro-war, neoconservative policy, targeting country after country for war, look no further than Jared Kushner.

Kushner Foundation Gives $342K to Chabad — Still Surprised About Jared and Ivanka’s Synagogue?

It might seem odd for a Modern Orthodox Jewish family to join a Chabad synagogue. But Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner are already quite invested in the ultra-Orthodox outreach movement – or to be more precise, their parents are.

A Haaretz examination has revealed that Charles and Seryl Kushner have been major benefactors of Chabad over the years. Between 2003 and 2013, their family foundation donated a total of $342,500 to various institutions and projects associated with the movement, their tax records show.

Chabad has benefited not only from Kushner’s side of the family. It turns out that President-elect Donald Trump has also contributed to the movement – even before his daughter, who converted to Judaism, was married. Altogether, the Donald J. Trump Foundation has donated $11,550 to three Chabad institutions.
