Father of black woman shot and killed in her own home by a white cop says 'unlike Botham Jean, I don’t want no hug' as family brands her death 'MURDER'

This cop should be indicted,tried,convicted and sentenced to life without parole. His home and assets should be confiscated and his family thrown out onto the streets. The Fort Worth PD needs to be investigated for the plethora of officer involved shootings along with the DA's office.

The father of the black 28-year-old aspiring doctor who was shot and killed by a police officer inside her own home early Saturday morning says her death was 'senseless'.

Marquis Jefferson said that his mother called him Saturday morning to tell him that his only daughter, Atatiana Jefferson, had been shot dead by a Fort Worth officer performing a welfare check at her home at around 2.30am.

Matt Taibbi: "We're In A Permanent Coup"

I’ve lived through a few coups. They’re insane, random, and terrifying, like watching sports, except your political future depends on the score.

On Thursday, news broke that two businessmen said to have “peddled supposedly explosive information about corruption involving Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden” were arrested at Dulles airport on “campaign finance violations.” The two figures are alleged to be bagmen bearing “dirt” on Democrats, solicited by Trump and his personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani.

Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman will be asked to give depositions to impeachment investigators. They’re reportedly going to refuse. Their lawyer John Dowd also says they will “refuse to appear before House Committees investigating President Donald Trump.” Fruman and Parnas meanwhile claim they had real derogatory information about Biden and other politicians, but “the U.S. government had shown little interest in receiving it through official channels.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Matt Taibbi has nailed this; what I am seeing here, makes me very nervous, indeed.

Collins: Schiff wants interviews kept secret because Dems ‘can’t win this in the public eye’

House committees are expected to continue their series of closed-door transcribed interviews as part of their impeachment-related investigation of President Trump this week, and Rep. Doug Collins, R-Ga. claims the secrecy is due to the Democratic majority not wanting the public to know that the testimony does not support their narrative.

Earlier this month, former U.S. Special Envoy to Ukraine Kurt Volker, Intelligence Community Inspector General Michael Atkinson and former U.S. envoy to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch went before Democrat-led committees to face questions about President Trump and whether he pressured Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky into helping investigate Joe and Hunter Biden. Both sessions took place in closed-door settings. U.S. Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland is re-scheduled for this Thursday after his previous appearance was shut down by Trump.

The Privatization of US Led Wars. The Pentagon’s Private Contractors

When the United States invaded Iraq in 2003, of the $87 billion earmarked for the first year of the campaign, $30 billion was budgeted for private contractors. That’s 34% of the entire invasion-budget. Over the course of the 8-year US occupation of Iraq, the largest private recipient of Pentagon contracts was Kellogg Brown and Root, an engineering and construction company, which grossed $40.6 billion from the occupation. According to a 2011 report by the Commission on Wartime Contracting in Iraq and Afghanistan, at least $60 billion in Pentagon expenditure on private contractors over the period 2001-2011 could be classified as “fraud” or “waste.” This report estimated the level of “waste” at the time of publication at $12 million per day.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These numbers are pretty damned horrifying and depressing; perhaps not for a government ankle deep in war crimes, as the Unhinged, Surveilled State of Amerika has become.

I remember a time in my life, when I really believed that the US government and its military would never do anything horrible or unethical; then came the Vietnam War, and all the horrors it created, and it became impossible to look at this country other than as the vampire/vulture it had become, expropriating resources to which it had utterly no moral right, then insuring that such resources were only sold in US dollars.

This country may need private armies; but only for the care, and well-being of its citizens, particularly for the most fragile among them; not creating wars which demand mercenary support to win.

And every time the US military hires mercs for a war, they already have absolutely lost the moral high ground; forgive me, but wasn't acting from the moral high ground used to be what this country was supposed to be all about?!?

Behind Hong Kong’s Black Terror

Deciphering who’s behind the violence leads to a long list of possibilities
By Pepe Escobar
Global Research, October 13, 2019

Still, before the violence broke out, hundreds of thousands of Hong Kong people had gathered in peaceful protests in June, illustrating the depth of feeling that exists in Hong Kong. These are the working-class Hongkongers that Lai supports through the pages of Apple Daily.

For the black blocs, the burning is all about them – not Hong Kong, the city and its hard-working people. Those are all subjected to the will of this fringe minority that, according to the understaffed and overstretched Hong Kong police force, numbers 12,000 people at the most.

Are You Ready to Die? The US Military/ Security Complex Wants Tensions to Increase

The American military/security complex wants the tensions to increase, because this makes the orchestrated “Russian Threat” even larger and leads to a larger budget and more profits and power for the US military/security complex. The military/security complex about which President Eisenhower warned us, to no effect, has been highly successful in dismantling the arms control agreements made between past US and Russian leaders. This has raised the profits of the US military/security complex at the expense of the security of the world.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Although there are many pieces authored by Engdahl with which I agree mightily, this is not one of them.

Russian President Putin, and the people he has around him, may be many things, but foolish... is not one of them.

I don't think that Vlad and the Gang at the Kremlin, have any doubts about what the US government is attempting to pull here; but we have to take a look at the non-war ways in which Russia is trying to stop this, and here is a beautiful example, today, from zerohedge.com: Russia Considers Energy Exports In Euros, Rubles As Putin's De-Dollarization Continues

And if, ultimately, no one wants what is actually worthless US paper, which has no intrinsic value, as does gold or silver, what happens?!?

We may well see one of two options here; either a complete US economic collapse, or a Third World War, generated by this Last-gasp-of-empire country, the now unhinged, surveilled state of Amerika.

Unfortunately, Russia's military weaponry can run circles around nearly anything the US has produced yet, and they conscript, where the US does not; so how does the US win a war against Russia (and most probably China)
without the money; the troop strength; and the weaponry to make this happen?!?

The short answer is, right now, the US government and military may well not be able to win such a war, and would have to ask for terms of surrender, if there is anything left to surrender from such a war.

CONVOY ATTACK Turkey ‘bombs convoy of foreign journalists and aid workers killing 14’ in Syria border town

AT least 14 people have been killed in a devastating Turkish air raid on a civilian convoy in Syria yesterday, according to reports.

Five civilians, including a journalist, died after they were attacked as they arrived at the Syrian border town of Ras al-Ain, that Turkish-allied forces have seized.

A Kurdish news agency Hawar said one of its reporters was killed in the attack which reportedly left dozens more injured.

Several foreign journalists were with the convoy - which was also carrying aid workers - when it was struck, according to France 2 television's Stéphanie Perez.

She tweeted: "We were in the convoy of Kurdish civilians targeted by Turkish forces and their allies at Ras al Ain. Our team is fine, but some colleagues are dead."

Armed men, who were reportedly guarding the convoy, were among those killed in the bombing.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Smooth move there, Edrogan; attempting to "murder the messengers" before the truth could come out about this horrific military confrontation with Syria, I take it?!?

So now, what are you going to do, now that the Kurds have formally aligned with the Syrian Government, and Russia is holding out the option to join forces with the Syrian government, if they need it?!?

You may well have purchased the Russian S-400 defensive weapons system; but you never, for one millisecond, bought Putin's loyalty, which is, most likely, going to put a real "damper" on your expected "victory" against the Kurds in Syria.

National Security Council Gutted As Establishment Loyalists Undermine Trump

One week after President Trump ordered a serious reduction in staff at the National Security Council, National security adviser Robert O'Brien has announced the size and scope of the cuts, promotions, and other organizational matters following the departure of John Bolton.

O'Brien, John Bolton's successor, framed the cuts as a return to prior staffing levels after the headcount grew from around 100 people under President George W. Bush to over 200 during the Obama administration.

"It just ballooned into a massive, you know, bureaucracy … under the last administration," O'Brien told the Fox Business Network's Lou Dobbs.

News of the NSC headcount reduction comes amid a national whistleblower scandal in which a CIA officer working at the NSC, who used to work with former Vice President Joe Biden, approached the House Intelligence Committee to lodge a complaint against President Trump for 'pressuring' Ukraine into investigating alleged corruption by Biden and his son Hunter.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I cannot possibly fathom what Tom Perez, DNC chair, and his minions are thinking on this issue; but there is one thing of which I can nearly assure him and his team; if they move forward with this potential "political crucifixion" of President Trump, particularly if they run Hillary against him in 2020, they are creating the entirely perfect storm for creating the "political resurrection" of his career, won through a massive reenergizing of his base which cannot be offset by illegal aliens voting.

And Tom, why in the name of heaven are you throwing your greatest asset in the 2020 race, and that is the candidacy of Ms. Tulsi Gabbard, a Samoan American Vet who has actually seen combat, under the proverbial bus?!?

Is it that your overlords in the military industrial are so collectively terrified that she might have the "male attributes" to lead this country to peace and prosperity without these damnable wars, that they have threatened to double down their campaign contributions on Trump, if she is allowed to run?!?

Just a hunch of mine, Tom. :-)

'TERRIFYING AND TOTALLY PREDICTABLE': PENTAGON CONFIRMS US FORCES IN SYRIA CAME UNDER TURKISH ARTILLERY FIRE

According to the unnamed Pentagon official, "shelling by the Turkish forces was so heavy that the U.S. personnel considered firing back in self-defense." However, "instead of returning fire, the Special Forces withdrew once the shelling had ceased."

Jesus, this is terrifying and totally predictable.

"A senior Pentagon official said shelling by the Turkish forces was so heavy that the U.S. personnel considered firing back in self-defense."

Turkey "mistakenly" attacks US special forces in Syria https://t.co/DT7h23MCWX

— Holly Figueroa O'Reilly (@AynRandPaulRyan) October 11, 2019
Following Newsweek's report, a Pentagon spokesperson, Navy Captain Brook DeWalt, said in a statement that "the explosion occurred within a few hundred meters of a location outside the Security Mechanism zone and in an area known by the Turks to have U.S. forces present."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF any Americans were, in fact, injured or killed by these Turkish incursions, I seriously doubt that the US government or military would want people here to know.

But there is a sister story, out of zerohedge.com, which I feel is important to share here;
"Compromise Or Genocide": Putin's 'Deal Of The Century' Rapidly Unfolding In Syria This article goes on to state:

"Currently Syrian Army convoys — including tanks and artillery — have begun deployment to northern Syrian battlefronts at a moment US troops have been confirmed in retreat. Syrian state media affirmed that Damascus is set to “confront a Turkish aggression” on Syrian territory, after what appears to be a major deal struck between Damascus and the main US-backed Syrian Kurdish groups.

This article is confirmed by a story in antiwar.com, leading with the following headline: Syrian MKurds,, Damascus reach a deal in Russian-backed talks

But here's the REALLY juicy bit:

"Kurds will hand key cities to Syrian Army to defend"

Syrian ground troops are moving north to confront invading Turkish forces per a deal that was reached by the Kurdish SDF and the Assad government, in talks brokered by Russia and held on a Russian air base.

The deal sees the Kurds unilaterally handing over two important cities, Kobane and Manbij, both in the Aleppo Province, to the central government to rule. This means Turkey’s invasion of those cities would be a direct invasion of Syrian cities under government control. Those two cities are also where Syria’s Army is heading first. This would make Turkey attacking those cities more controversial, and also raises the possibility of Russia intervening on the government’s behalf.

I can just see Russian President Vlad Putin, laughing his head off, that the none of the American decision-makers on this war, absolutely never saw this coming, after throwing our multi-year military partners, the Kurds, to the Turkish wolves.

Things are moving at the speed of greased lightning here; please keep your eyes open for the next "US-dealt Russian checkmate" in this confrontation, and you will probably know very quickly what Putin's vision is for the Syrian government, and the future of both the Kurdish, and Syrian people.

How Extinction Rebellion climate change zealots - including a baronet's Cambridge-educated granddaughter - are paid £400 a week to bring mayhem to our streets

Extinction Rebellion activists are being paid up to £400-a-week to lead protests
Activists have been paid more than £200,000 since the start of the scheme
The eco-protest group privately fears it could face six-figure tax bill from HMRC
Tory MP calls on HMRC to launch an investigation into the group's tax affairs
By HOLLY BANCROFT and JAMES HEALE FOR THE MAIL ON SUNDAY

PUBLISHED: 17:28 EDT, 12 October 2019 | UPDATED: 21:00 EDT, 12 October 2019

Extinction Rebellion is paying activists up to £400 a week to lead the protests that have brought chaos to the streets of Britain, documents seen by The Mail on Sunday reveal.

Protesters have received payments totalling more than £70,000 in four months alone.

But the eco-protest group privately fears it could face a six-figure tax bill if the money, which is given as expenses, is deemed to be payment for work done on XR's behalf.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Folks, at the end of the day, this "movement" is all about money; not about saving the planet.

So the questions the Brit courts and their forensic accountants need to be asking, is, who, precisely, is funding this, and what is their hoped-for final agenda here?!?

Phonegate Alert: 9 Out of 10 Mobile Phones Fail When Safety Tested in Real Use Conditions. Manufacturers Knowingly Overexposed Us to RF Radiation

By B.N. Frank

It’s not a big surprise that we can’t trust phone manufacturers.  For many years they have been warning their shareholders – not the public – that they may eventually be held liable for causing harm with their products and transmitters.  Perhaps that’s why insurance companies haven’t been covering them.

In August the Chicago Tribune reported that 11 smartphone models exceeded federal Radio Frequency (RF) Radiation limits which led to Fegan Scott law firm filing class action lawsuits.

Since 2018, Phonegate Alert has been reporting about RF safety issues with phones and more.  Earlier this month, they published this update...

Rep. Tlaib Says Dems Considering Jailing White House Aides Who Refuse to Testify

The Bovine excrement is about to hit the fan! Call out the Marines!

Here's a quick way to a major constitutional crisis and perhaps even civil war.

Rep. Rashida Tlaib said in an interview that Democrats are seriously considering arresting and jailing White House aides who refuse to comply with subpoenas and testify in the House impeachment inquiry.

The threat is unprecedented and even Tlaib recognizes this.

The Hill:

Tlaib told Deadline Detroit that such an action, known as inherent contempt, would be "uncharted territory" for Congress but added that "serious discussions" about taking the step have occurred within the Democratic caucus.

SCHOOL TO PRISON PIPELINE EXPOSED AS 30,000 KIDS UNDER AGE 10 ARRESTED SINCE 2013

SOURCE: THE FREE THOUGHT PROJECT
(Support Free Thought) -

Arrests of children have skyrocketed over the last decade according to the latest statistics published by the FBI. Gone are the days of sending children to the principal’s office for a paddling. Now children as young as 6 are getting arrested in Police State USA.

The statistics, complied from 2013 to 2018, revealed more than 30,000 children under the age of 10 have been arrested, averaging more than six thousand kids per year. Equally disturbing is students 10-12 years of age topped 266,000.

In the past, students and children were disciplined with consequences such as time out and paddling. As more and more schools replace handling things internally with external police state options like school resource officers, children are ending up with arrest records and their fingerprints stored in databases.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This appears a far better remedy than jail time.

School to prison only, unfortunately, doesn't give a kid anything more than a permanent record; and what are we telling the kid about themselves in this manner?!?

That they are broken beyond redemption, period, end of discussion.

Reactions to My Tweet Reveal the Ignorant Brutality of Young Socialists and Communists

An eye-opening social experiment unfolded on my Twitter feed over the past several days that reveals a lot about America’s new brand of young communists and socialists.

In other words, it is their professors who are to be blamed.

Axis of Resistance.The West and its Allies Support al Qaeda and ISIS Globally

The real Axis of Evil consists of Washington-led NATO and its allies. The magnitude of the human and environmental catastrophe is unimaginable in scope. Western governments and their agencies send strong delusion to North Americans, who remain largely ignorant to the reality of the catastrophe being committed in their names.

The Western War Of Terror, to which our governments remain committed, loots public treasuries to commit and sustain an overseas holocaust, wherein the West and its agencies support, command and control the very same terrorism that they proclaim to be fighting.

Portland shooting: Is Antifa descending into gang violence?

By Monica Showalter
Antifa, the far-left pukes who've turned politics into a thug act, especially in Portland, Oregon, is getting itself into some kind of death spiral.

Meanwhile, a vehicular hit is a typical gang activity and yes, normally targeted at a leader, which Kealiher was, so a sort of picture is emerging there on that front, too. Kealiher had a stage name, "Armenio" which gang members have, too. And they all like to wear masks.

It just raises the question as to whether Antifa has entered a new sort of stage in its development, pure gangsterism coming out of its nasty politics, and is now emerging as a full blown criminal gang or mafia, fighting amongnst its own if not right-wing gangs for supreme power.

U.S. HAS SPENT SIX TRILLION DOLLARS ON WARS THAT KILLED HALF A MILLION PEOPLE SINCE 9/11, REPORT SAYS

The United States has spent nearly $6 trillion on wars that directly contributed to the deaths of around 500,000 peoplesince the 9/11 attacks of 2001.

Brown University's Watson Institute for International and Public Affairs published its annual "Costs of War" report Wednesday.

The final count revealed, "The United States has appropriated and is obligated to spend an estimated $5.9 trillion (in current dollars) on the war on terror through Fiscal Year 2019, including direct war and war-related spending and obligations for future spending on post 9/11 war veterans."

Empire Uses Kurds as Pawns in its Imperial Pursuits in Syria

The situation in the North East of Syria regarding the Kurds seems to be a topic of confusion for most. Understandably so as they have been made to appear by US politicians and news outlets as the most effective fighters against terrorism in Syria. Although they have in fact been successful in driving out terrorists in some areas there is information that needs to be discussed that explains the other half of the story that is purposely hidden in the Kurdish and mainstream media news outlets. We have only been hearing from the Kurdish side now it’s time for the Syrians in Kurdish held areas to have their chance to tell us about the hardships they have been put under by the Kurds.

Erdogan's isis Cooperation

The heroic Syrian Arab Army and its allies have been fighting a fierce war against multi-national terrorists from all over the globe. The battle against isis was the fiercest.

With the ongoing invasion by Turkey- the main backer of terrorists in Syria- of many towns and villages in North and East Syria, many of isis members and cells were given a boost!

According to different news outlets, many isis terrorists have broken out of prisons in northern Syria after Turkish shelling

Turkey is recruiting and retraining isis terrorists to lead its invasion of Afrin in northern Syria, according to an ex-isis source.

“Most of those who are fighting in Afrin against the Syrian Kurds are isis, though Turkey has trained them to change their assault tactics,” said Faraj, a former isis fighter from north-east Syria who remains in close touch with isis.

Cops Coerce Man with IQ of 63 to Confess to Crime He Didn’t Commit, Gets Repeatedly Raped in Jail

Humphreys County, TN – Will Ferrell is a mentally challenged young man who was accused of touching a 7-year-old girl’s genitals while jumping on a trampoline. Instead of immediately identifying the young man as having special needs and waiting for the results of a DNA test, detectives at the Humphreys County Sheriff’s Department treated him as if he had an IQ of a normal young man and grilled him using less than ethical interrogation techniques. Ferrell’s IQ is 63.

Detectives immediately began to grill the man with special needs up until the point they were able to get a false confession.

China's Modern Blueprint For Global Power

Authored by Lawrence Franklin via The Gatestone Institute,

The People's Republic of China, which celebrated its 70th anniversary on October 1, is led by the Chinese Communist Party's General Secretary, President Xi Jinping. In his speeches, Xi often refers to "Qiang Zhong Gwo Meng" ("the Chinese dream"), a code phrase for the era of rejuvenation when China will eventually overtake the United States as the most powerful nation in the world.

Beijing apologists depict China as a non-predatory power, comparing it favorably to Europe's colonial countries in the past and to today's United States.

Similarly, the state-controlled Chinese media depict Chinese statecraft as being based on and reflecting ancient Confucian ethics:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I fail to see precisely where the article is supposed to inform/lead the US government on its foreign policy concerning the stellar rise of China, both economically, and as a nation state; however, that being said, reading the ending attributions does give one a sense of who the person is who wrote it,and their respective mindset.

The guy's name: Lawrence Franklin; please remember that.

So what would this former Iran Desk Officer under former Secretary of Defense Rumsfeld, a war criminal many times over, have We the People, and the US government, do?

Are we, as were the Pope's soldiers instructed by at the siege of Montsegur during the persecution of the Cathars in Languedoc, administered by Papal Prelate, Dominique de Guzman (who was, of course, later sanctified by the Roman Church as "St. Dominic) supposed to support a movement animated by the cry, "Kill them all; God will find His own"?!?

OK, shall the US government exterminate millions of innocents because it doesn't particularly like the current philosophy and goals of their current government?!? IF it looks like a war crime; moves like a war crime, and smells like a war crime (massive amounts of putrefying human flesh with no remedy for the stench), it's is a war crime, folks.

So what do we do as a country?!? IF it is still possible by any of the alleged brainiacs inhabiting the "think tanks" of this country, OUTTHINK THEM!!!

Put this country on a currency based on intrinsic value; declare a "jubilee" for debt forgiveness; and create weapons which actually, really work in combat.

Next, haul presidents of all the companies who hobnob with Washington's elite, yet consistently turn out junk which, even after years of fixes, and cost-over-runs, like the F-35, fail in combat situations into a court of law, charge and convict them with "failure to deliver", and have them cool their heels in a non "Club Fed" environment for some time.

That would go a long way toward curing the problem; of course, that will never happen, so we are looking at two possible outcomes here; World War III, or a complete collapse of the American government.

I don't like either option; but having this country's government go down into complete financial ruin would be less hazardous to the health of the the entire planet, than another world war.

Sorry for the "gloomanddoomistic" tone of this post, but please remember: everything has a life cycle; people; governments, and yes, planets themselves have a life cycle, including this earth, when our sun becomes extinct.

The earliest written references to cannabis are found in the Chinese Materia Medica, written by Shen Nung around 2800 B.C. Nung documented 100 conditions that responded well to cannabis, including gout and rheumatism
For thousands of years, cannabis remained one of the 50 essential plants used in Traditional Chinese Medicine. The Vedas, the sacred text of India, also lists cannabis as one of five sacred plants
The ancient Egyptians, Persians and Greeks also used cannabis in a variety of ways, including medicinally and for spiritual upliftment

An Unfaithful Servant of Imperialism: The Real Reason Trump Is Facing Impeachment

For the neocons and the “liberal” right-to-protect “humanitarian imperialists,” Trump’s lurches in the direction of non-intervention and rapprochement are only venial sins.

Pompeo Can’t Blame Iran For Attacking Itself

This frantic coup to impeach Trump on phony nebulous charges didn't materialize until after Trump refused to attack Iran over the drone shootdown. This is payback from the same people who gave us 911....Israel!!!

The people squawking the loudest about the President’s recent policy decisions in the Middle East are the ones most likely behind this.

The most likely candidate is the one actor who has consistently overstepped its bounds in attacking neighbors it considers hostile for any reason. Israel.

If the neocons and Israeli Firsters in Congress (and formerly in his cabinet) have turned on Trump to the point of starting impeachment proceedings against him for not going to war with Iran, then Trump is free to finally just blow it all wide open.

Which is exactly what he is doing. The Kurds were simply mercenaries to help us defeat ISIS. Job’s done, your beef with Turkey is your problem.

Americans who’ve blown the whistle over serious offenses by the federal government either spend the rest of their lives overseas, like Edward Snowden, end up in jail, like Chelsea Manning, get arrested and ruined financially, like former NSA official Thomas Drake, have their homes raided by FBI like disabled NSA vet William Binney, or get charged with espionage like ex-CIA exposer-of-torture John Kiriakou. It’s an insult to all of these people, and the suffering they’ve weathered, to frame the ballcarrier in the Beltway’s latest partisan power contest as a whistleblower.

BEFORE ASSANGE, SNOWDEN, AND MANNING, THE DEEP STATE TARGETED JOHN LENNON

John Lennon, born 79 years ago on October 9, 1940, was a musical genius and pop cultural icon. He was also a vocal peace protester and anti-war activist and a high-profile example of the lengths to which the Deep State will go to persecute those who dare to challenge its authority.

Trump Is History and So Is the USA

Paul Craig Roberts

When I read this evening in The Hill, which I mistakenly thought was a legitimate news publication rather than a weapon against President Trump and the Republicans, that the documented fact that Joe Biden and his son received between them $1,750,000 for preventing any Ukrainian investigation of the corrupt firm Burisma was mere unsupported “allegation,” and that the Trump Department of Justice had indicted two associates of Rudy Giuliana, President Trump’s most fervent supporter, for “campaign finance violations,” a very elastic term, it became completely clear that Trump’s own Justice (sic) Department is part of the Deep State’s plot to destroy Trump.

REPORT: Whistleblower Worked With Joe Biden When He Was Vice President

According to a report from the Washington Examiner, the CIA operative blowing the whistle on Trump for calling out corruption by Joe Biden and his family used to work with Joe Biden while he was vice president.

Lawyers for the whistleblower said he had worked only "in the executive branch." The Washington Examiner has established that he is a career CIA analyst who was detailed to the National Security Council at the White House and has since left. On Sept. 26, the New York Times reported that he was a CIA officer. On Oct. 4, the newspaper added that he "was detailed to the National Security Council at one point."

Winston Churchill – Traitor and Murderer

“World history: There are two world histories. One is the official and full of lies, destined to be taught in schools – the other is the secret history, which harbours the true causes and occurrences.” Honore de Balzac

Winston Churchill; the man voted in a newspaper poll as the ‘greatest ever Englishman,’ was actually an evil, self-serving, narcissistic, opportunistic, hypocritical, treacherous, traitorous, perverted paedophile and a murdering psychopath.

Preposterous you say? Read on and see if you still believe this statement to be untrue at the end of this article…

The truth about Winston Churchill is that he was a menace to liberty, and a disaster for Britain, for Europe, for the United States of America, and for Western civilisation itself.

Return to Russia: Crimeans Tell the Real Story of the 2014 Referendum and Their Lives Since

IMFEROPOL, CRIMEA — In early August I traveled to Russia for the first time, partly out of interest in seeing some of the vast country with a tourist’s eyes, partly to do some journalism in the region. It also transpired that while in Moscow I was able to interview Maria Zakharova, spokeswoman of the Foreign Ministry.

High on my travel list, however, was to visit Crimea and Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) — the former a part of Russia, the latter an autonomous republic in the east of Ukraine, neither accurately depicted in Western reporting. Or at least that was my sense looking at independent journalists’ reports and those in Russian media.

A scenario for impeachment and more

By Nathan Barton

The more I hear the rhetoric of the Democratic candidates for Massa (POTUS), the Congressional Democrats, and the mainstream media, the more convinced I am that they are indeed pushing for a coup.

Yes, The Donald is a disaster as POTUS. He is immoral, mercurial, and a loose cannon. He terrifies people. Including a good many foreigners.

U.S. “Military Aid” to Al Qaeda, ISIS-Daesh

Author’s Note and Update

This article was first published by Global Research on October 2, 2016.

The United States and its allies use arms trafficking –i.e. the unregulated illicit trade in light weapons through private traders including organized crime–, to channel large amounts of weapons and ammunition to the terrorists inside Syria.

The US led coalition uses the illicit trade in light weaponry produced in Eastern Europe, the Balkans, China, etc. for delivery to rebel groups inside Syria, including ISIS-Daesh and Al Nusra. In turn, operating out of the occupied Golan Heights, Israel’s IDF has provided weapons, ammunition, logistical support to Al Qaeda rebels operating in Southern Syria.

Egyptian Protests: A US-Fueled “Arab Spring” Reboot?

By Tony Cartalucci

When the West’s leading media organizations attempt to convince audiences they know nothing about where Mohammed Aly – a Spanish-based Egyptian protest leader – came from, the first thing one can be sure of is they are being lied to.

Protests have begun to spread again in Egypt after nearly a decade of frustration in Washington over its inability to coerce Cairo into serving its regional and global designs...

FBI misused surveillance data, spied on its own, FISA ruling finds

In an October 2018 ruling unsealed and posted on October 8, 2019 by the Office of the Director of Intelligence, the United States Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) found that the employees of the Federal Bureau of Investigation had inappropriately used data collected under Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA). The FBI was found to have misused surveillance data to look into American residents, including other FBI employees and their family members, making large-scale queries that did not distinguish between US persons and foreign intelligence targets.

The revelation drew immediate outcry from privacy advocates and renewed calls for the termination of FISA and USA FREEDOM Act that authorized bulk intelligence collection.

Comey’s Daughter Works in SDNY where Trump’s being investigated

Maurene (Ryan) Comey (Issarachoff), an Assistant United States Attorney in the Southern District of New York (SDNY), is the 30-year old daughter of disgraced former FBI Director James Comey. James Comey is a mortal enemy of President Trump’s.

The SDNY, where Comey’s daughter works, has taken over where the Mueller probe left off and, unlike Robert Mueller, they have no limitations if they engage in a witch hunt.

Maurene Comey graduated from Harvard as a Doctor of Law after graduating Phi Beta Kappa from The College of William and Mary. She’s qualified.

One of six children of James Comey and his wife, she, along with her mother and sisters, voted for Hillary Clinton. When Clinton lost, Patricia Failor, her mother, was “devastated” according to James Comey.

FBI Agent: We Found ‘Ten Times’ as Many Hillary Emails as James Comey Publicly Claimed

According to a new book, FBI agents claimed the discovery of thousands of Hillary Clinton’s emails on Anthony Weiner’s laptop was an “oh s***” moment, with one admitting there were “ten times” as many as former FBI Director James Comey has admitted to publicly.

The book, titled ‘Deep State: Trump, the FBI, and the Rule of Law,’ written by James B. Stewart, paints a picture of an agency stunned by the findings.

Thousands of additional emails were discovered after investigators found them on devices used by Weiner and his wife Huma Abedin. The agents had been probing the former Democrat congressman’s explicit texts with a 15-year-old girl.

“The agents called the discovery an ‘oh s***’ moment as they combed through Weiner’s iPhone, iPad and laptop,” Stewart writes.

Tracking foreign interference in Hong Kong

Lawrence YK Ma is the executive council chairman of the Hong Kong Legal Exchange Foundation and director of the China Law Society, the Chinese Judicial Studies Association and the Hong Kong Legal Exchange Foundation. He also finds time to teach law at Nankai University in Tianjin.

Ma is the go-to expert in what is arguably the most sensitive subject in Hong Kong: He meticulously tracks perceived foreign interference in the Special Administrative Region (SAR).

Ma received me at his office in Wanchai this past Saturday morning after a “dark day” of rampage, as described by the SAR government. He wasted no time before calling my attention to a petition requesting a “United Nations investigation into the United States’ involvement in Hong Kong riots.”

Trumpenstein Must be Destroyed!

So here we go. Like a 1960s straight-to-drive-in Hammer Film Production, the 2020 campaign season has begun. Dig into your bucket of popcorn, pop the flap on your box of Good & Plenty, turn off your mind, and enjoy the show. From the looks of the trailer, it’s going to be a doozy.

That’s right, folks, it’s the final installment of the popular Trumpenstein horror movie series, TRUMPENSTEIN MUST BE DESTROYED! It will be playing, more or less around the clock, on more or less every screen in existence, until November 3, 2020 … or until Trump takes that lonely walk across the White House lawn to the Marine One chopper and flies off to Mar-a-Lago in disgrace.

Here Come the Polocaust Deniers

Yesterday Haaretz published a tedious, clumsily written 5000 word rant titled, “The Fake Nazi Death Camp: Wikipedia’s Longest Hoax, Exposed.”

It seems that some Israelis and Jews are very disturbed that Poles have a gas chamber narrative of their own. “For over 15 years, false claims that thousands of Poles were gassed to death in Warsaw were presented as fact. Haaretz reveals they are just the tip of an iceberg of a widespread Holocaust distortion operation by Polish nationalists”

I’m not even remotely an expert on gas chambers. I am neither an engineer nor a historian and have no opinion on the validity or historicity of claims that Poles were gassed by Nazis. But what is plain is that Israelis and Jews are insisting upon dominating any narrative of the past and not just the Jewish past. They are outraged that other victims of the Nazis claim to have been gassed. They insist that being gassed must remain the sole domain of the Jews.
