Fidel Castro Defies US Imperialism Even in Death

At age 90, Fidel Castro passed away after decades of heroic struggle for social justice, not just for his native Cuba but for all people around the world. Even in his final decade of illness, the iconic revolutionary was still actively fighting; writing articles on international politics and upholding the cause for socialism.

Even in death, Fidel’s revolutionary spirit lives, teaches, inspires.

It’s Snowing Dollars In One Mountain Area

The Brazelton family has owned the Evergreen Cafe in Wrightwood for 12 years and were glad to hear a forecast of snow and cold.

Their daughter has her own financial forecast.

“A lot of people are gonna come into the restaurant and it’s gonna be very busy, and everyone in town is going to drive like crazy” Amanda Brazelton said.

Those not used to driving in this weather might scare the locals, but its the out-of-towners that drive the Wrightwood economy. People in the small town packed with shops and restaurants are glad to see the visitors.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Russia is developing a mega-rocket that will transport supplies to build a base on the MOON, Deputy PM reveals

President Vladimir Putin wants work to begin on the new 'super-heavy' rocket which will 'pave the way' for a lunar research station.

It will enable the construction of a Russian base that will be both 'visitable and inhabitable', according to Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin.

'On instructions from the president, which is being finalised technically, we are launching a super-heavy space rocket project, with quite different payload capabilities,' he told experts at the space rocket corporation Energiya, TASS reports.

'It will pave the way for implementing the idea of a research station on the Moon, visitable and inhabitable.'

Huma Abedin's sister spreads fake news claim that Clinton could still win if enough people tell Justice Department to carry out 'election audit'

Huma Abedin's sister was one of the chief cheerleaders for the presidential election recount - and spread bogus theories about it online.

Heba Abedin urged her followers on Facebook to call the Department of Justice because it was supposedly tallying phone calls to see if a vote audit should be done.

But the message - which Heba appears to have copied directly from a viral post - was not true and was debunked by the DOJ.

Heba, 37, whose older sister Huma is one of Hillary Clinton's closest aides, has subsequently deleted the Facebook post.

'Mirai bots' cyber-blitz 1m German broadband routers – and your ISP could be next

A widespread attack on the maintenance interfaces of broadband routers over the weekend has affected the telephony, television, and internet service of about 900,000 Deutsche Telekom customers in Germany.

The German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) issued a statement indicating that the cyber-assault, which was detected on Sunday and continued into Monday, has also targeted government networks, but has been inconsistent in its effect due to protective measures.

A modified version of the Mirai worm – which commandeered huge numbers of CCTV cameras and other Internet-of-Things gear – is now scanning home routers for security vulnerabilities, and either crashing or hijacking devices. This upgraded malware, and similar software nasties, were likely behind the weekend's outage in Germany, by attacking the modems' maintenance interface on port 7547.

If inoculation with a large regimen of vaccines is safe, what can account for the rapid increase in autism and other mental disabilities that are now at epidemic proportions? And why isn't the sudden onset of neurological illnesses in children being treated as an urgent crisis by our government and medical industries?

Following the Fourth Amendment Would Help Make America Great Again

By Kelli Sladick

During the last eight years, the Obama administration failed to live up to its promise reverse the Bush era’s mass surveillance of American citizens. In fact, it was expanded and justified. If you were silent, the sweeping power controlled by the president may not be on your radar for the right reasons. While there is a deep fear resonating, at least half looked the other way when “their guy” held the powers of the presidency.

So let’s put aside the distractions roaring through the media, and let’s walk down memory lane...

India Takes Drastic Move Toward Cashless Society

By Brandon Turbeville

In 2012, India launched a nationwide program involving the allocation of a Unique Identification Number (UID) to every single one of its 1.2 billion residents. Each of the numbers will be tied to the biometric data of the recipient using three different forms of information – fingerprints, iris scans, and pictures of the face. All ten digits of the hand will be recorded, and both eyes will be scanned....

Now, having made a decision to ban 500 and 1,000 pound Rupee notes, Prime Minister Modi is openly stating his goal of moving India towards becoming a “cashless society.”

Then, according to ABC News, JFK Jr's plane went into a steep dive, and crashed.

'Fake News' is a contrivance of the fakestream media that has completely lost control of every narrative... and now they're panicking

There is a saying often misattributed to Mahatma Gandhi that goes, "First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win."

This quote, which most likely was derived from a speech given by union leader Nicholas Klein in 1914, perfectly sums up the current state of relations between the so-called 'mainstream media' and alternative media.

The only thing Hillary is going to achieve by backing Jill Stein’s shameless recount stunt is to make herself a TWO-TIME loser and drag America’s reputation as a democracy through the mud. How very Clinton of her!

Her torrent of tears doesn’t particularly bother me, though I like to think potential presidents are made of slightly tougher stuff. Can you imagine Trump breaking down and sobbing for hours on end, if he’d lost?

Nor did it particularly surprise me when Hillary sat back and let her enraged supporters march around with their protest placards mocking and abusing Trump, and burning and hanging effigies of him in the streets.

She could have stopped it with a few firm words, in the spirit of Michele Obama’s ‘When they go low, we go high’ entreaty.

But Hillary preferred to say nothing, as she usually does about the grubbier, nastier end of her political operations.

Now she's supporting Jill Stein’s attempt to initiate recounts in three swing states, even though there’s no actual evidence that any of these votes were rigged

Who Is Celebrating The Assassination Of The USSR?

Last Friday the Atlantic Council hosted a curious panel in Washington, DC, dedicated to the 25th anniversary of the dissolution of the USSR: three shabby men who personally participated in a notorious, clandestine meeting in the Belavezha forest in Belarus on December 8, 1991 were seated on a stage in the capital of the principal beneficiary of that coup d’état – Boris Yeltsin’s then-Secretary of State Gennady Burbulis; the “founding president” of Ukraine Leonid Kravchuk; and the chairman of the Belarusian parliament, Stanislav Shushkevich. They were such a sad spectacle that it is much more interesting to look back at the history of their conspiracy at Viskuli, a hunting lodge for Soviet nomenklatura in Belarus 8 km off the Polish border, and the resulting direct consequences.

More Tales from the Election That Wouldn’t End

Once upon a time, there was a Land full of mountains, deserts, lakes, and plains. The person who got to run the country was selected by the same tradition for hundreds of years. In this particular year, the choice was between an Evil Queen and a Loud Ogre.

The Evil Queen was confident she had the job. She and her followers had gone to great lengths to secure the vote, and some of those lengths were quite questionable. We learned this because of a brave knight locked away in an Ecuadoran Embassy, typing away on a computer to let all of the people know the truth about the Evil Queen if only they dared to read it.

Imagine the shock when the Loud Ogre defeated the Evil Queen on election day, according to the traditions of the Land.

Michigan certifies Trump as winner

Donald Trump has officially won Michigan, the final state to be awarded and the capstone of Trump’s unlikely run of narrow victories in the Midwestern states that will deliver the first-time political candidate to the White House.

Michigan’s Board of Canvassers certified the results on Monday afternoon in Lansing. Trump won 2,279,543 votes (47.6 percent), according to the certified results — 10,704 more than Hillary Clinton’s 2,268,839 (47.4 percent).

Trump becomes the first Republican presidential candidate to carry Michigan since George H.W. Bush won it in 1988, breaking a six-cycle Democratic winning streak.

Turkish forces, backed by US-led coalition aircraft, began a military operation dubbed Euphrates Shield to clear the Syrian border town of Jarabulus and the surrounding area of the Daesh, outlawed in Russia and many other countries. As Jarabulus was retaken, the joint forces of Ankara, the coalition and Syrian rebels continued the offensive southwest.

“There is no coordination between us on the one side and Turkey and the United States on the other… We believe that the actions of these two countries in northern Syria are interference in our internal affairs, aggression and intervention,” Brig.

Obama Expands Global War on Terror to Somalia

With just over a month left in office, President Obama has once again expanded America’s global war on terror, announcing that he has formally added Somali militant faction al-Shabaab into the “perpetrators of 9/11” war authorization from back in 2001.

Passed on September 14 of 2001, the Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF) was intended to authorize the war against al-Qaeda, but officials have used as the legal justification of myriad unrelated American wars around the world, of which al-Shabaab is just the latest.

The AUMF authorized war against any nations or organizations involved in 9/11. Al-Shabaab didn’t exist until years later, with the group forming in 2007 and becoming a US-listed terror group in 2008. President Obama, however, seems comfortable continuing to abuse the AUMF for any war that strikes his fancy.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Please give me a moment to wrap my brain around this; am I correctly understanding that Obama is adding Somalia's Al-Shahab to the "perpetrators of 9/11" terrorist list RETROACTIVELY, in light of the fact the group didn't exist until 2007?!?

Is Al-Shabab a "threat" to the homeland of the US in any way?!?

Absolutely not.

But here are some interesting facts about the country, the first, courtesy of google.com:

Somalia has untapped reserves of numerous natural resources, including uranium, iron ore, tin, gypsum, bauxite, copper, salt and natural gas. Due to its proximity to the oil-rich Gulf Arab states such as Saudi Arabia and Yemen, the nation is also believed to contain substantial unexploited reserves of oil.

Secondly, as reported on 4 October of this year at nationalinterest.org:

Al Shabaab, the most powerful Islamist group in Somalia, aligned itself with Al Qaeda in 2012. But in contrast to the globally-oriented Al Qaeda, Al Shabaab has focused on military and political objectives in Somalia and neighboring countries, demonstrating a nationalist brent that the broader Al-Qaeda movement lacks. Nonetheless, the U.S. military has conducted drone strikes on Islamist militants in Somalia since at least 2011. But lately, American intervention has escalated. Both the frequency of — and casualties from — U.S. drone strikes in Somalia increased dramatically. No fewer than 194 people have died in American drone strikes in Somalia as of September 2016. That’s a tenfold increase over 2015, according to the United Kingdom-based Bureau of Investigative Journalism. The U.S. military and intelligence services have also deployed manned warplanes from bases in Ethiopia and Djibouti, as well as from ships at sea, in order to strike targets and collect intelligence. American and British commandos have been active on Somali soil since at least 2007 — and probably as early as 2003 — for individual reconnaissance and kill-or-capture missions. As with the drone strikes, ground activity has increased markedly in recent years. In addition to unilateral missions aimed at high-value targets, U.S. Special Operations Forces have been embedding with Somali and Ethiopian troops as “advisers” — and have even found themselves in gunfights with Al Shabaab fighters. This practice seems to have begun in earnest in 2015, when Pentagon press releases began to refer to “self-defense strikes” by drones and other aircraft in support of U.S. troops and their allies after they had come under fire. This choice of words is not without its ironies, as a close reading of these reports makes clear that in most — if not all — cases, U.S. troops were involved in offensive missions, where return fire was practically guaranteed.

Simply put, the US government is at war in Somalia to prevent its resources from being controlled by Al-Shahab elements, in order to control the sale of those resources by US approved trans-national corporations, and prevent them from being sold internationally in other than the US petrodollar.

Turkey's Erdogan escalates war of words with European Union

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan warned the European Union Saturday that Turkey could extend by at least another three months a state of emergency that has been in place since the failed July coup. In a public address in Istanbul, Erdogan launched another attack on the EU just days after the European Parliament voted to back a freeze in accession talks with Ankara.

"Maybe the state of emergency will be extended by three months and then maybe another three months," Erdogan said. "This is a decision for the government and the parliament." He also threatened to restore capital punishment, a decision that would effectively end Ankara's longstanding bid. And he added that he would listen to Turkish citizens rather than people named "Hans" and "George," picking two common European first names.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Right now, the hard truth is that Turkey and Europe need each other, particularly because of the immigration deal Europe still so desperately needs to ease the flow of immigration to their respective countries.

Erdogan has shown his proclivities for dictatorship, post-failed coup, and that may work for a while, if the Turkish people actually think he and his government can keep them safe; however, if this proves to not be true, you may well see gigantic demonstrations against him, and a snap election - allowed under the Turkish Constitution - through which to replace him.

Afghanistan Is All Ready To Be Donald Trump’s First Foreign Policy Disaster

Little is known about Trump’s views on Afghanistan, although he has suggested that building schools there is a waste of money. In his most detailed comments, he declared in 2012 that the U.S. intervention is “a total and complete disaster.”

It likely will be months before the Trump White House can shift from such criticism toward a coherent strategy for Afghanistan.

The Afghan military and police have been unable to reverse the insurgents’ gains, despite the $68 billion spent by the U.S. trying to build up the country’s security forces. The Afghan army loses a third of its soldiers every year between battle casualties, desertions and those who decline to re-enlist. Officials reportedly pocket the pay of legions of non-existent “ghost soldiers.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I love the way this headline is structured; but what about the possibility that Afghanistan could be a foreign policy win for Trump, after 15 years of doing what hasn't worked?

Doing the same thing over and over, yet expecting a different outcome, is one of the most classic definitions of insanity.

And there is a damned good reason why Afghanistan is frequently characterised as "the graveyard of empires"; ask British and Russian military historians about that, and they will have a tale to tell you.

Ultimately, Afghanistan was attacked and occupied in order to build pipelines; control the oil fields, and the mineral wealth of the country. As reported at viewzone.com:

Immediately after 9/11 president Bush declared war to Afghanistan. This article shows the role of Afghanistan in pipeline projects which determine US' control over oil and gas in Afghanistan's neighbouring countries. Bush said the attacks of 9/11 were the reason to invade Afghanistan. [1] This article shows that preparations for this war took place well before. In 2000 the neoconservatives said they needed some catastrophic and catalysing event. They said so at the time of the developments of unmanned aerial vehicles striking with pinpoint accuracy. Karzai: After the US conquest of Afghanistan (or at least of its capital), UNOCAL's advisor Hamid Karzai would be appointed Chairman of the interim administration of Afghanistan. On June 16, 2002, still before there was an elected president, Karzai would sign an official agreement with Turkmenistan and Pakistan for a gas pipeline through Afghanistan. [70] But even if the gas pipeline would come too late to transport Turkmen gas to Pakistan, Afghanistan remains an interesting booty. It has its own gigantic gas field south of the Turkmen field, near Mazar e Sharif. It has also several oil fields and coal. Furthermore, in the 1970s British geologists had already found 1600 places with minerals.

Simply put, for all the blood and money spent, the motivations for this war were strictly economic in nature.

Had a draft existed, you would have seen huge demonstrations against this war, which may have ultimately stopped it long before now. But because it did not, the US government turned to private merc firms, which have proved both very costly to the US taxpayer, but ultimately useless against the Taliban.

This had absolutely nothing to do with ultimately "protecting the American way of life."; Afghanistan posed absolutely zero threat to the US (although they were initially blamed for 9/11).

But it has, however, created generations of Afghanis who will hate this country, and NATO, for a long time because of the carnage which has been left in the wake of the invasion and occupation of their country.

Were President-Elect Trump and his cabinet going to be smart on this, they would evacuate our military as quickly as safely possible, then negotiate with whatever government was left standing in Kabul for the pipeline rights, the oil field rights; and the mineral rights.

That over the last 15 years, American military forces have been made to die and get maimed for life, ultimately for private profit, is one of the most horrifically immoral a thing that a government could do, but.... hey, the Bush and Obama regimes were perfectly comfortable with this!!

I am hoping that Trump will see this for what it is, and do the right thing; the US government was NEVER on the moral and right side of history with this war, and it is high time to acknowledge this in a reasonable, and practical way.

BREAKING THE SILENCE ON ISRAELI RACISM

When a government removes its Bedouin citizens from their home in order to settle its own Jewish citizens in their stead, this is racist dealing. Dispossessing people of their land in order to plant a forest on that same land is inhuman. Had these Bedouins been Jewish settlers, the government certainly would not evict them before finding an alternative dwelling for them that would suit their demands.

By its own acts the government of Israel proves that the UN’s outrageous ruling was not erroneous. Citizens of Israel who do not protest this extreme injustice in fact support the government in its racist policy.

Here’s why “fake news” sites are dangerous

Many of these sites were launched and are spearheaded by ONE man or woman.

No person outside the mainstream is supposed to be so emboldened by his/her own point of view and passion.

“All points of view belong to a group.”

We’re not supposed to believe these “fake news” INDIVIDUALS created their news operations on their own. We’re not supposed to believe each individual had a vision of what the news is supposed to be and followed that vision forward with great energy.

An individual works for what he believes is true? He keeps his own counsel? He forges ahead, despite all opposition? He may even, when all is said and done, make a profit from his own labors? We’re supposed to oppose these “evils,” and by the grace of governments and their shadow operators, we will emerge from the darkness and find our salvation in a New Order of things.

Ron Paul Lashes Out At WaPo's Witch Hunt: "Expect Such Attacks To Continue"

On Thursday, the Post published a new article by Craig Timberg complaining of a “flood” of so-called fake news supported by “a sophisticated Russian propaganda campaign that created and spread misleading articles online with the goal of punishing Democrat Hillary Clinton, helping Republican Donald Trump and undermining faith in American democracy,” To advance this conclusion, Timberg points to PropOrNot, an organization of anonymous individuals formed this year, as having identified “more than 200 websites as routine peddlers of Russian propaganda during the election season.” Look on the PropOrNot list. There is the Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity’s (RPI) website RonPaulInstitute.org listed among websites termed “Russian propaganda outlets.”

What Trump voters want is economic power for themselves, not more taxes on the rich

Trump’s victory clearly appears to stem from a sense of economic powerlessness, or a fear of losing power, among his supporters. To them, his simple slogan, “Make America great again,” sounds like “Make YOU great again”: economic power will be given to the multitudes, without taking anything away from the already successful.

Why New Crohn’s Disease Vaccine is a Mistake

By Michelle Goldstein

A Crohn’s disease vaccination is being developed by a researcher in Great Britain. The vaccine targets MAP, a bacteria found in 80% of Crohn’s sufferers. The vaccine aims to help stimulate the body to eliminate MAP, and thus cure those suffering with Crohn’s disease.

While the intent of the researcher may be honorable, it is highly debatable whether another vaccination is the answer for this serious disease.

Vaccinations have in fact been blamed for causing autoimmune disorders including Crohn’s disease...

THE US GOVERNMENT IS ALREADY QUIETLY BACKING OUT OF ITS PROMISE TO PHASE OUT PRIVATE PRISONS

Critics have long denounced private prisons in the US as unsafe, inefficient and at times, inhumane. Those critics, who include inmates and activists, seemed to find a powerful ally earlier this year when the Department of Justice announced it would phase out its use of private prisons for federal prisoners. This wouldn’t mean the end of privately-run incarceration facilities (they’re also used by immigration authorities and states), but it was seen as a step forward. Except, that when the first contracts came up for re-negotiation this fall, the federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) quietly decided to renew them anyway. That decision, along with the election of Donald Trump, mean that the US is unlikely to see the use of private prison operators diminish any time soon.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The private prison system in this country is engineered to work magnificently for their shareholders, but terribly for inmates incarcerated in them.

Put very simply, they don't work; when an inmate finishes their sentence, they are very likely to be worse off in every conceivable way than when they went in, and the recidivism rate for these facilities is through the roof.

But, of course, the private prison industry has discovered the power of political contributions, and how they can make the industry "bullet-proof" to calls to shut them down, because of the lousy outcomes for their prisoners.

As reported at represent.us:

Private prison companies are exploiting our corrupt political system to lock people up… for profit. The two largest private prison companies alone have spent $35 million on lobbying and campaign contributions to state and local officials since 1989. Evidently, it was money well spent: The number of prisoners housed in private facilities has jumped 1600% since 1990. By buying favor with the right politicians, private prison companies have been able to secure everything from lucrative government contracts to harsher laws to guarantee a steady stream of inmates for their facilities. These companies turn our tax dollars into a lucrative business that hauls in $3 billion a year.

These numbers - and their implications - are just staggering.

Mike and I recently had the opportunity to watch Michael Moore's documentary, "Where to Invade Next?", and in this film is a segment on a Swedish prison. The prisoners are treated humanely, fed decently, and are truly rehabilitated before they leave. The ultimate outcome?!? People who can reintegrate with society, and the numbers document that only a tiny fraction of them re-offend.

The American penal system is horrifically broken, and until we can, as a nation, get this sorted, the system will not work, either for the prisoners, or ultimately, society at large, and we all pay a price for its disfunction.

DOCTOR AT STANDING ROCK: “PEOPLE HAD SHEETS OF ICE HANGING OFF THEM” AFTER POLICE TRIED TO MURDER DAPL PROTESTERS BY GIVING THEM HYPOTHERMIA

Dr. Robie Sterling finished his residency at Swedish Medical Center a few months ago. Not long after, he traveled to North Dakota with two other doctors from Swedish.

But he was alone in the medic tent when the radio call came in Sunday evening. There was a confrontation happening at the front line.

Sterling: “Police were starting to shoot the rubber bullets.”

Police also used water sprays and tear gas.

It was dark, below freezing, and injured people started to pour in.

Sterling: “The initial ones were nearly all head shots. Pretty much everyone had a concussion. Some of them had lacerations to the head. One woman had an eye injury.”

Sterling says the camp had just started to prepare for incidents like this, but they were far from ready.

Physicians and volunteers worked through the night as protesters and police clashed. Camp organizers estimate more than 200 were injured, and at least 17 hospitalized.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is a very good reason why the corporate presstitutes are not covering this on-going protest; their corporate and governmental masters have ordered them NOT to cover this, because this kind of brutal police behaviour, toward unarmed protesters, is about to become the "new normal" future of policing nation-wide, and they don't want you to see what is coming until it is far too late to do anything about it.

And please remember; the police motto now is not "to protect and serve" but "to maim and kill in behalf of corporate interests!!"

Secret Trade Proposal Would Give Facebook Free Reign to Censor by Algorithm

Facebook has long drawn ire over its tendency to censor users’ posts based on its opaque standards. But under leaked proposals from a controversial European trade deal, the social network and other online services could be granted legal immunity when censoring any content, as long as it’s deemed “harmful or objectionable.”

The measure is one of several internet-related proposals being advanced by the Trade in Services Agreement (TiSA), according to a leaked section of the agreement published by Greenpeace and the German digital rights blog Netzpolitik. The draft proposal, which is dated September 16, 2013, effectively guarantees online services’ ability to censor such content in Europe without needing to accept any legal liability or public accountability—whether that curation is done by a human or an algorithm.

Jill Stein Can’t ‘Guarantee’ Money Will Go to Recount, Changes $$$ Goal

Before you donate to Green Party candidate Jill Stein‘s effort to demand a recount in Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania, you may want to read the fine print on her website. So far, she has raised $4.8 million, but take a look at this little clause at the end of donation form:

We cannot guarantee a recount will happen in any of these states we are targeting. We can only pledge we will demand recounts in those states.

If we raise more than what’s needed, the surplus will also go toward election integrity efforts and to promote voting system reform.

And interestingly, as more donations started pouring in over the holiday, Stein moved her total fundraising goal to $7 million. She originally had a goal of $2.5 million. She also upped the amount she will need for lawyer’s fees.

Per Pennsylvania regulations, there is only one way remaining for Jill Stein to get a recount in Pennsylvania and it is a complicated process. BillyPenn reports that Stein would have to file for a court appeal and present a “prima facie case” showing that voter fraud took place. While prima facie has a lower burden of proof threshold than “beyond reasonable doubt”, it is still significant. Stein would have to prove in court that fraud was “probable.” This is going to be very difficult given that even the computer specialists recommending the recount say there is no proof of hacking or fraud.

United States President-Elect, Sir Donald John Trump, decides to try and work in different positions for Hotel Maintenance. Would Obama and Killary do this? I think not

1) Your job as a manager is to make it possible for your employees to do the best job they possibly can. In order to do that, it helps to understand their job and to have done it yourself. That’s why he does this. Plus it earns him respect from his employees.

2) Obama has never had a real job. Ever.

Webmaster addition: I had an opportunity to meet and talk with Alfred Hitchcock shortly before his death, and he had the same attitude. He did not want to tell people on the set to do a job he himself did not know how to do, and Hitch knew how to work everything on that stage, from lights to cameras to sound mixer (this being before the days of computers). Charlie Chaplin was the same way. I am glad that Trump thinks like this.
