Drilling Down into Flu Deceptions and Mind-boggling Lies

By Jon Rappoport

Not every mainstream medical professional is trying to lie about the flu. Most of these people, as a result of their indoctrination, simply assume conventional wisdom is true.

But as you move toward the top of the ladder—for example, public health agencies like the US Centers for Disease Control (CDC)—there are definitely some first-class liars on board.

The information I’m about to spring on you—and I’ve posted this before—is in the category of: HOW CAN THAT BE TRUE? IF THAT WERE TRUE, THEN EVERYTHING I’VE BEEN TOLD AND EVERYTHING I’VE BELIEVED IS INCREDIBLY FALSE. So…buckle up. Here we go...

US Staged Coup d’Etat in Bolivia

by Stephen Lendman

The late William Blum documented CIA coups since WW II.

They’re staged to advance Washington’s aim for unchallenged global dominance. It’s not a pretty picture.

Variations of the same script are used to topple foreign leaders not subservient enough to US interests.

CIA dirty hands orchestrate things — the undemocratic National Endowment for Democracy, USAID, and other US agencies also involved.

Foreign right-wing politicians and military officials are bought like toothpaste to go along with diabolical plots to topple sovereign independent governments, US dark forces wanting pro-Western puppet rule replacing them.

Blum explained how the plot works, saying “on behalf of American business, and often with their help, the CIA mobilizes the opposition,” adding:

US War on China by Other Means

All independent nations unwilling to subordinate their sovereign rights to US interests are on its target list for regime change — notably Russia, Iran and China.

The Trump regime initiated Sino/US trade war has nothing to do with trade, everything to do with hardliners in Washington wanting China’s economic, financial, industrial, technological, and military development undermined.

Endless US-orchestrated violence in Hong Kong is one of many examples of how its dark forces aim to disrupt, destabilize, weaken, pressure, and bludgeon other countries to bend to its will.

The Armistice We Need: Time for Vets To Reclaim Veterans’ Day

In the 101 years since the Armistice took effect, on the eleventh minute, of the eleventh hour, of the eleventh day, of the eleventh month of 1918, the US military has been at war somewhere – even by conservative measures – all but eleven of those years. That pesky number eleven, how it haunts us still. Most Americans may find that statistic shocking, or, in some cases, might simply reject it. And why not? Much of the citizenry learned the nation’s history, taught (at increasingly paltry levels) in public schools. Too often they’re trained to reflexively view the US as a once flawed, but ultimately great – exceptional, even – country. Those pugnacious stats can’t be accurate, many assume, because after all, America isn’t an empire, isn’t a warlike nation. Even in this so-called modern age, such thinking is shockingly pervasive.

War is a Racket by Maj. General, Smedley Darlington Butler

War is a Racket is a book by Maj. General, Smedley Darlington Butler, the most decorated Marine in history, denouncing the military industrial complex. This reenactment video is a compilation of some of his speeches. The two-time Congressional Medal of Honor recipient exposes war profits that benefit the few at the expense of many. Throughout his distinguished career in the Marines, Smedley Darlington Butler demonstrated that true patriotism does not mean blind allegiance to government policies with which one does not agree. To Hell with war.

And the Armies That Remained Suffer’d: Veterans, Moral Injury and Suicide

by Matthew Hoh

In a 2015 New York Times story a Marine Corps infantry unit that was tracked after coming home from war saw suicide rates among its young men 4 times greater than other young male veterans and 14 times that of civilians. This increased risk of suicide for veterans who served during war holds true for all generations of veterans, including the Greatest Generation. A study in 2010 by The Bay Citizen and New America Media, as reported by Aaron Glantz, found the current suicide rate for WWII veterans to be 4 times higher than for their civilian peers, while VA data, released since 2015, show rates for WWII veterans well elevated above their civilian peers. A 2012 VA study found that Vietnam veterans with killing experiences had twice the odds of suicidal ideation than those with lower or no killing experiences, even after adjusting for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), substance abuse and depression.

How The Deep State "Justifies" Itself In America

Authored by Eric Zuesse via The Strategic Culture Foundation,

On October 30th, there was a panel discussion broadcast live on C-Span from the National Press Club and the Michael V. Hayden Center. The discussants were John Brennan, Michael McCabe, John McGlaughlin, and Michael Morrell. They all agreed with the statement by McLaughlin (former Deputy CIA Director) “Thank God for the ‘Deep State’”, and the large audience there also applauded it — nobody booed it.

Former CIA director John McLaughlin on Trump’s impeachment: “Thank God for the deep state”.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Folks, I have a news flash about these people; for them, it is only a question of whose ox gets gored (in this case, President Trump's); being able to "count coup" on the evils they continue to perpetrate and support (like the US's continued support for the Sultan of Bahrain, who consistently tortures his own citizens, whose only "crime" has been peaceful demonstrations for a constitutional monarchy, because the Navy's 5th Fleet is stationed there); and who gets the money at the end of the day.

One has to wonder just what percentage of their income, comes from the military industrial complex.

Very bluntly put, these are vile sociopaths of the highest order, who are not quite "in the biz of governance", who expect to gain brilliantly financially, by promoting these destabilizations and endless wars, through their work as presstitutes and warmongers.

I wish everyone who "signed on" for this kind of work was required to put all their assets into a blind trust before they accepted their positions in the (alleged) US media, but understand that this will only happen...when pigs discover they are aerodynamic.

Honor veterans? Then demand arrests of .01% US War Criminals lying our military into OBVIOUS illegal Wars of Aggression that kill millions, harm billions, loot trillions

Current and ongoing US military armed attacks on several nations are the opposite of lawful, and all started with lies known to be false as they are told.

This essay explains, documents and proves illegal and lie-started Wars of Aggression that active US military are trained to refuse engagement because there are no lawful orders for illegal Wars of Aggression.
The costs of these War Crimes include millions killed, billions harmed, and trillions looted.

US military veterans “served” these illegal attacks by .01% lying sacks-of-spin political and media “leaders.” Obviously, the responsible citizen will demand .01% arrests for War Crimes.

This essay’s central facts was published by The Claremont Colleges after a 2015 international conference for ~2,000 people, and I continue to reframe its contents until the wars are ended.

"Too Many To Count": The Global Persecution Of Christians

Authored by Raymond Ibrahim via The Gatestone Institute,

Today is one of the International Days of Prayer for the Persecuted Church (IDOP). Initiated over 20 years ago by the World Evangelical Alliance, 100,000 congregations around the world and millions of Christians participate on this day.

"This November let us unite in prayer for our persecuted brothers and sisters," IDOP noted in a brief video that highlights a few examples of recent persecution, including the Easter Sunday church bombings in Sri Lanka and the ongoing slaughter of Christians by Islamic groups in Nigeria and, increasingly, Burkina Faso.

Statistics bear out this grim assertion: "4,136 Christians were killed for faith-related reasons," noted Open Doors in its World Watch List 2019. "On average, that's 11 Christians killed every day for their faith." Additionally, "2,625 Christians were detained without trial, arrested, sentenced and imprisoned" and "1,266 churches or Christian buildings were attacked."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I knew that the numbers here were grim, but I did not realize that they were this grim.

But looking at these numbers, we cannot forget that Christians clobbering other Christians, for differences in orthodoxy, has happened during this religion's history as well; I am very relieved that, for the most part, Christians have grown up, and this has stopped, and Christians now have a good track record of working with other denominations of Christians toward common goals of "lifting people up, who have fallen by the wayside."

One of the most wonderful opportunities for giving time, and energy, on Oahu, was for a food distribution program, headed up by a wonderful Dominican Nun, and co-sponsored by an equally wonderful person from my Methodist congregation in Aiea.

No one, that I can remember, ever said a nasty word, or put in a dig, to either the Catholics or Protestants who volunteered to help families judged by the State of Hawaii as Food-Insecure. We simply and collectively, had "our eyes on the prize" of making sure that people not only ate a nice meal, when they came, but also had bags of food to take home, with which to feed their families.

New York Rep. Peter King Becomes 20th House Republican To Announce Retirement Plans

Long Island's Peter King has become the 20th House Republican to announce that he will not seek reelection in 2020.

King, a former chairman of the House Committee on Homeland Security, made the announce in a post on his Facebook page. In his post, the 14-term Congressman said he's tired of spending 4 days a week in Washington, and would like to spend more time at home in Seaford.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder what King, and the other 19 Congressional Republican Representatives, see coming, after the 2020 election, and find so offensive and/or terrifying, that they feel they have no other choice than to step down?!?

California fires are Directed Energy Weapon (DEW) attacks: abundant photographic/video evidence explained by retired fire captain and fire fighter

Retired Fire Department Captain John Lord and a fellow retired fire fighter (unwilling to state his full name) have over 60 years’ experience as professionals working with fires. Both explain that recent California fires are the only ones they’ve ever witnessed or ever heard of with these characteristics:

1. Great number of fires starting at the same time.
2. Temperatures two to three times normal.
3. Homes obliterated but leaving surrounding trees and plastic untouched (garbage/recycle cans, plastic lattice, outdoor dog domes).
4. Trees burned at the base only and from the inside out.
5. Evidence of resistance heating with fires started from Smart Meters and metal similar to microwave energy.

Reasons Marijuana Legalization Seems To Be Failing

When it was first proposed, the concept of marijuana legalization seemed solid enough. Take the world’s most popular illicit substance, establish a taxed and regulated marketplace and watch all of the evil associated with the herb – the criminal activity, the youth consumption –fade away into a footnote of American history. And by all accounts, it was a plan that should have worked. After all, we weren’t dealing with a new idea or anything.

FOOD SYSTEM COLLAPSING ACTIVELY, RAPIDLY -- URGENT WARNING

Agriculture is collapsing as propane shortages prevent US farmers from drying their crops, just the latest blow in a record wet year. Failures of seed crops presage a difficult 2020 season. Australia's drought forces ranchers to cull cattle -- even breeding stock -- an UNRECOVERABLE loss of priceless genetics. Christian steps back today to explore how the blows to global agriculture are part of the plan: an open, anti-human depopulation agenda. Start growing. Start preparing. Spread the word. Now. This means you.

Israel’s Supreme Court — Upholding “Targeted Assassinations” and Torture

Time and again, Israel’s high court upholds human and civil rights abuses committed by the state.

In 2006, the court upheld its targeted assassinations policy, claiming they’re OK when no other choices exist to protect against dangers to national security — that don’t exist it failed to say.

The policy contravenes Israeli law, the laws of war, and human rights law. Time and again, Israel falsely calls legitimate self-defense by Palestinians “terrorism,” unjustifiably justifying its lawless actions, most often upheld by its high court.

In Public Committee against Torture in Israel et al v. the Government of Israel et al (1999), Israel’s Supreme Court banned the practice it earlier OK’d, ruling “psychological pressure (and) a moderate degree of physical pressure” are permissible.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Back in World War II, there was a German interrogator by the name of Hanns Scharff. Bio: Hanns Scharff

Scharff never once resorted to violence, but in an absolutely perfect English, would persuade the men he questioned, that he already knew who they were, and what they did, and frequently took them on day passes for cultural events.

The most interesting thing here, is that he managed to get precisely the information he wanted in this way.

After the war, this man was so respected by the American military that they invited him to teach his methods to the American military; (yes, the guy was that good!).

Unfortunately, those lessons learned from Scharff's techniques have been absolutely abandoned by both the US and Israeli military.

There are some very emotionally sick individuals who get off on causing extreme pain, perhaps maiming the tortured for life, and these are generally the people who wind up doing it, not because it gives them actionable information, but because they like to really hurt other people.

53 Million Americans Drowning In Cycle Of Low-Wage Work 

For instance, a new report sheds light on 53 million Americans, or about 44% of all US workers, aged 18 to 64, are considered low-wage and low-skilled.

Many of these folks are stuck in the gig economy, making approximately $10.22 per hour, and they bring home less than $20,000 per year, according to a Brookings Institution report.

An overwhelmingly large percentage of these folks have insurmountable debts if that are student loans, auto loans, and or credit card debt. Their wages don't cover their debt servicing payments as their lives will be left in financial ruin after the next recession.

While the top 10% of Americans are partying like it's 1999, most of whom own assets, like stocks, bonds, and real estate, are greatly prospering off the Federal Reserve's serial asset bubble-blowing scheme and President Trump's stock market pumping on Twitter.

Today's artificial economy isn't working for everyone as the wealth inequality gap swells to crisis levels.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And while President Trump keeps chanting his "mantra" about the economy being "great", it is, unfortunately, only "great for the already monied.

There are many moments when President Trump appears to be absolutely, totally tone-deaf to the real needs and concerns of ordinary working people who have, through absolutely no fault of their own, found that their decent-paying job, enabling them to enjoy a middle class lifestyle, has been offshored/outsourced by corporations which relocate internationally, and pay pennies on the dollar for that country's labor.

US Threatens Sanctions On Serbia, Scrambles To Thwart Possible S-400 Purchase

In a largely unreported but hugely important story that played out this week in the Balkans, Washington is putting immense pressure on Serbia to shelve future plans for acquiring Russia's advanced S-400 air defense missile systems.

The controversy began Wednesday when Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic told a public television broadcaster in an interview that he had a desire to purchase the S-400 but lacked the funding to do so, and at one point said "Serbia was ready to accept S-400s from Russia as a gift," according to TASS.

"You know, when you have such a weapon, no one would attack you. Neither US nor any other pilots fly where S-400s are operational: Israeli pilots do not fly either over Turkey or Syria, except for the Golan Heights. We have aviation, which the strongest than ever before. We will be strengthening the air defense with Pantsyr systems and other things, which are not on the sanctions list," Vucic said in the interview.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

(Sigh) Mr. President, a word, please: we know that Russia's S-400 performs brilliantly in the field.

That having been said, weaponry from American companies has been deployed by American forces and their allies long before they were really ready; the example that comes to mind, Mr. President, is that of the Lockheed-Martin F-35.

https://www.defensenews.com/air/2019/06/12/the-pentagon-is-battling-the-clock-to-fix-serious-unreported-f-35-problems/

and BTW, I really need to ask; what were this company's contributions to your campaign in 2016?!?

Is THAT why these flaws have not yet been addressed?!? Because your campaign took the money on the promise that these issues would be fixed by the time you took your Oath of Office in 2017?!? Sir, if in fact, that was the case, you got lied to, big-time.

This is precisely why no weaponry company should ever, EVER, be allowed to contribute to Presidential campaigns, because it makes their CEOS more "relaxed" by problems which should have been fixed before the Pentagon ever signed off and using it in real warfare situations.

Just asking, Mr. President..because NONE of our men and women in uniform deserve shoddy weapons when called by Congress to go to war; not one, thank you very much.

Only Donald Trump Can Save American Democracy and Only with Our Support

It is a Constitutional Republic PCR! Otherwise a great article.

Now that the “quid pro quo gate” hoax has collapsed, like the Russiagate hoax, the presstitutes are inventing a new quid pro quo hoax. It wasn’t money that Trump dangled before the Ukrainian president in exchange for an investigation of Ukraine’s contribution to the Russiagate hoax. It was a presidential visit to Ukraine. I listened to the latest CIA-directed presstitute plot unfold today on NPR. Three semi-males devoid of integrity did their best to substitute a visit to Ukraine by Trump for the unsubstantiated promise of money. The visit is all third hand as there is no mention of such a visit in the telephone conversation between Trump and Zelensky. The impeachment hoax now rests on unverifiable alleged conversations between Trump aides and Zelensky aides that Trump will honor Ukraine with a visit if Ukraine reopens the investigation.

Global Debt Tops $188,000,000,000,000 – Officially The Biggest Debt Bubble The World Has Ever Seen

Authored by Michael Snyder via TheMostImportantNews.com,

The world is now 188 trillion dollars in debt, and that number continues to grow rapidly each year.

It is a form of enslavement that is deeply insidious, because most of those living on the planet do not even understand how the system works, and even if they did most of them would have absolutely no hope of ever getting free from it. The borrower is the servant of the lender, and the global financial system is designed to funnel as much wealth to the top 0.1% as possible. Of course throughout human history there has always been slavery, and the primary motivation for having slaves is to extract an economic benefit from those that are enslaved. And even though most of us don’t like to think of ourselves as “slaves” today, the truth is that the global elite are extracting more wealth from all of us than ever before. So much of our labor is going to make them wealthy, and yet most people don’t even realize what is happening.

"Clients With Guns" Are Demanding Deposits From Crisis-Stricken Lebanese Banks

Here we go as predicted: the Lebanese central bank attempts to prevent a "panic mode" scramble on the part of the public to remove all deposits, and the recently imposed (unofficial) regulations geared toward staving off capital flight are predictably failing fast, per Reuters:

“Clients with guns have entered banks and security guards have been afraid to speak to them as when people are in a state like this you don’t know how people will act.”

Lebanon's private banks reopened a week ago on Friday following a two-week closure due to massive anti-government protests which created gridlock across the country's main cities, including closure of other public institutions such as schools.

The World Bank weighed in on Friday, urging leaders in Beirut to form new Cabinet within a week, citing risks to Lebanon's stability as "deeply concerning," according to the AP.

Hong Kong Student Dies From Injuries In First Fatality Linked To Protests

In what appears to be the first death of a protester stemming from the aggressive police tactics, a young student has died after sustaining a serious head injury during a fall from the third floor of a car park to the second while police carried out an aggressive dispersion operation to end a protest

According to the SCMP, Chow Tsz-lok, a second year computer science undergraduate student at Hong Kong University of Science and Technology fell from the car park in Tseung Kwan O as police fired off rounds of tear gas on Monday.

California's Housing Nightmare Is Only Getting Worse

When historians look back on contemporary California, one thing they'll be bound to make note of is that the state's developers bet on the wrong model.

Endless, suburban sprawl is coming back to haunt California in ways both major and minor. In densely populated communities across the state, traffic is horrible thanks to underdeveloped public transportation (this is especially true in LA). Most residents have accepted that deadly, devastating wildfires are just part of the deal now - bound to recur endlessly until the state's population shrinks to the point that it no longer intermingles with the state's vast swaths of woodland.

Although Mike and I met and married in Southern California, we have absolutely no desire to live there anymore.

America's Endless Wars: "At West Point, Graduation Day Felt More Like A Tragedy Than A Triumph"

Authored by US Army Major Danny Sjursen (ret.) via TheNation.com,

Patches, pins, medals, and badges are the visible signs of an exclusive military culture, a silent language by which soldiers and officers judge each other’s experiences, accomplishments, and general worth. In July 2001, when I first walked through the gate of the US Military Academy at West Point at the ripe young age of 17, the “combat patch” on one’s right shoulder - evidence of a deployment with a specific unit - had more resonance than colorful medals like Ranger badges reflecting specific skills. Back then, before the 9/11 attacks ushered in a series of revenge wars “on terror,” the vast majority of officers stationed at West Point didn’t boast a right shoulder patch. Those who did were mostly veterans of modest combat in the first Gulf War of 1990–91. Nonetheless, even those officers were regarded by the likes of me as gods. After all, they’d seen “the elephant.”

Facebook announced on Friday that it would be removing an posts which name alleged Trump-Ukraine whistleblower Eric Ciaramella

Facebook announced on Friday that it would be removing an posts which name alleged Trump-Ukraine whistleblower Eric Ciaramella.

"We are removing any and all mentions of the potential whistleblower’s name and will revisit this decision should their name be widely published in the media or used by public figures in the debate," Facebook said in a statement in which they claim it violates their "coordinating harm" policy which prohibits content 'outing of witness, informant, or activist.'

On Wednesday, the social media giant removed ads naming Ciaramella which had been viewed several hundred thousand times according to the Washington Post.

On Friday, Breitbart's Allum Bohkari reported that the news outlet's posts containing references to Ciaramella had been scrubbed from the site.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Frankly, this is precisely what we can expect henceforward from the Zuk, the Malnificent's "Facebook"; since the 4th estate in this country has been defined as "journalism, or what passes for it in this country today", the 5th estate has become that of both the cybersurveillence, and cyber-scrubbing ordered by the US Deep State; folks, it is just that simple.

Zuk the Malnificent, through Facebook, is simply a tool of the US Deep State; nothing more and nothing less.

Thirst for Justice: America’s Struggle for Clean Water: Pollution, poisoning and the loss of human life due to unsafe water are the accepted costs of doing business in America.

Somehow I’d ended up on a plastic mattress in a tiny prison cell wearing the infamous orange jump suit. I’d been arrested once before in Egypt during the revolution as a journalist, but now I was in Wisconsin, America, where freedom of speech is enshrined in the constitution. I’d considered myself safe there.

I had been arrested whilst filming a small, peaceful protest by mainly Indigenous Ojibwe people against the construction of a new oil pipeline. I was working on a documentary film on America’s struggle for clean water.

Controversial pipelines

Enbridge’s Line 3 will carry 760,000 barrels per day of tar sands oil from Canada, across the American border to a refinery on Lake Superior, Wisconsin. Almost as much oil as the controversial Keystone XL.

The Vaccine Deep State. Impacts of Aluminum Adjuvants in Vaccines

The media refuses to accept that those who have been vaccine damaged, or who have children who will suffer for the remainder of their lives from adverse vaccine events, have a legitimate right to speak their truth rather than being labeled as hysterical or crazy. All of these individuals and parents were pro-vaccine until they or their child became vaccine-injured. Similarly we saw the New York Times manufacturing consent for accepting falsehoods that Iraq possessed weapons of mass destruction. And this was true across the mainstream outlets including the Washington Post, Fox, MSNBC, CNN and others. The Times fabricated that rationale to the public on behalf of the neocons in the Bush administration who were determined to have a war. None of the journalists publishing these lies have taken responsibility nor lost a night’s sleep because their fakery led to the death of millions.

Substandard Education in America

The quality of American education, as we will see, is far lower than the world has been led to believe, and the quality in China is in many cases much superior to that in the US. Americans might care to ask why it is that Chinese elementary or high school students moving to the US are often promoted by one or two grades. The reason is that they know so much more than their American counterparts they would suffer terminal boredom if forced to remain at their prior grade level. If we refer to the PISA tests, Shanghai’s math scores were 119 above the OECD average, or the equivalent of nearly three years of schooling, with reading and science exceeding the OECD average by about 1.5 years of schooling. And in some cases, the American students were behind the OECD average by approximately the same number of years as the Chinese were ahead.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Folks, this cannot be seen in any possible light but that of a deliberate push by the US government to keep its people illiterate; innumerate; and incapable of critical thinking.

Father of Julian Assange Fears His Son Will Die in Prison: UN Rapporteur on Torture Warned Assange May Lose his Life

John Shipton, the father of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, told reporters on Friday that he needs to “face the bitter truth” that his son “may die in jail.” Shipton spoke with reporters in Geneva two days after he visited Assange in Belmarsh prison in London.

“This is not the bitter disappointment of a father, this is simply fact,” Shipton said. “Julian may die in jail over a nine-year persecution for revealing the truth of war crimes. It is beyond obscene.”

Shipton’s comments come a week after UN special rapporteur on torture Nils Melzer said, “Unless the UK urgently changes course and alleviates his inhumane situation, Mr. Assange’s continued exposure to arbitrariness and abuse may soon end up costing his life.” Melzer has previously warned that Assange had been subject to psychological torture.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I believe that Assange's dad is absolutely, horrifically correct.

Assange's info has never been hit as falsification; he has simply been a "thorn in the side" of the US government, and I cannot for a moment doubt, that he has been the victim of both physical and psychological torture, while held at Belmarsh.

IF he does make it into an American prison (which I sincerely doubt will happen), he will, most likely, be too ill to speak in his own defense, and wind up dead of some weaponized disease, one of the effects of which is hallucinatory behaviour and thoughts, which will become part and parcel of how his "legacy" will be screwed by the US/British intelligence agencies in years to come, for telling the truth.

More Iraqi Protesters Killed, Sistani Says Time for Govt to Meet DemandsSistani aide: No longer can government procrastinate

Iraqi security forces continued to crack down on protests Friday, with security forces killing at least 10 people in Basra, where the protesters have been keeping the country’s main Gulf port closed for days.

Live gunfire and killing protesters hasn’t worked in the past, nor is there any sign it’s going to work here. The biggest issue is likely to be Grand Ayatollah Ali Sistani’s sermon, which is now saying the government must immediately meet demands of protesters.

The top religious leader in Iraq, Sistani has long warned against using force against the protesters, and now says it is time to just meet the demands of the protesters immediately. His aide Sheikh Abdul Mahdi al-Karbalaie, added that their position is that the Iraqi government can not “procrastinate on this issue because of the great risks facing the country.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

To Iraq's Grand Ayatollah Ali Sistani, I have three words for you, and they are BLESS YOU SIR!!

Speaking out against corruption in government is not an easy task (and trust me, sir, as an American, I do know just a tiny bit about this); I understand that this took a lot of moral courage on your part, but you absolutely did the right thing here.

Because if policy makers in Baghdad do not listen to you, we may well be looking at a bloody revolution in Iraq, with a government permanently aligned with other than American interests, and that influence would most likely coming from...Iran.

Unfortunately, the Iranian-born Shiite Cleric, Muktada Al Sadr, whose party created a significant coalition in the last Parliamentary elections, is now seen as part of the problem, because his influence really did nothing to create a cure for Iraq's corruption, even though he has railed against it frequently.

Pentagon’s East Syria Operation About More Than Taking the Oil

Whether to control the oil or flat out take the oil, US statements on the new military mission in Syria are heavily oil-themed. Other reports, however, suggest that the operation is a lot more complicated than that.

In reality, a lot of the goal is nation-building, with US forces meant to both keep the Syrian government out of this part of Syria, and try to “bring prosperity” to the region, propping up a potential territory of rebels.

This is again built around the assumption that the US can manufacture an autonomous, prosperous region, using the oilfields as the revenue source, and then steer that region toward hostility with the rest of Syria.

This will likely end up being a plan easier for the Trump Administration to sell than overt theft of oil, as it allows the US to retain its primary focus, military hostility toward Syria with an eye toward eventual regime change.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

(Sigh) to those in the Pentagon who actually believe that this is a reasonable, logical way of moving forward in Syria; I really don't know if you need a hug, some calcium magnesium; some milk and a happy-ending bedtime story, or at least one American, a Christian pacifist activist, who never encourages violence (folks, that's me) to gently suggest to you that such an approach is completely, as in barking-dog mad, rubber-room-esque insane.

What homogeneous group are you going to give this region to, now that the Kurds have pledged fealty to the Syrian government?!?

The Kurds’ commander in chief explains why his forces are finally ready to partner with Assad and Putin.

My big question is, how long Russia's Putin will be willing to put up with this foolishness before Russian (plus Kurdish plus Syrian) troops uncork on US positions in Syria?!?

And folks, for me, that is the ultimate nightmare scenario. The two headlines right under this at antiwar.com, give me no comfort on this issue either.

Pentagon Claims US Authority to Shoot Any Syrian Govt Official Who Tries to Take Control of Syrian Oil and the headline under this, Erdogan: Turkey Won’t Leave Syria Until Every Other Country Does: Says Turkey will not let up on offensive against Kurdish militants

Does the US position here even remotely resemble a reasonable, sane, responsible,and moral moment of conflict resolution?!?

The short answer, of course, is: HELL, NO!!!

Jim Jordan Hit With 'Jerkoff-Gate' Hours Before Joining Impeachment Panel

Update: Despite 'masturgate' - Jordan was appointed to the House Intelligence Committee on Friday.

Days before his anticipated appointment to the House's leading impeachment panel, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) has been hit with a new allegation that he ignored a 1994 complaint claiming that an Ohio State University sports doctor jerked off in a shower in front of a referee, according to NBC News.

The curiously timed allegation is contained in a lawsuit filed Thursday by 43 accusers who claim Ohio State's "ingrained culture of institutional indifference" enabled their sexual abuse. The doctor, Richard Strauss, is accused of "drugging and raping athletes" as he preyed on underage athletes. He died in 2005 and was later found to have sexually abused 177 male students over two decades.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"...CURIOUSLY TIMED..." MY ASTROLABE!!

The point of the timing was to completely prevent Jordan from being appointed to the House Intelligence Committee which, thankfully, did not happen; I am reminded, at this moment, of that statement of Oscar Wilde, about "Revenge is a dish served best cold".

What the Democrats, or Bunglingcrats, as i now describe them, have managed to do, here is get to Representative Jordan furious enough to be able to rip this whole inquiry to shreds, and right in front of the American people.

One has to wonder what the statute of limitations is in Ohio, or wherever this lawsuit was filed, in light of the fact that these allegations happened over 25 years ago, and Dr. Strauss died 19 years ago.

The curious timeline for taking down Trump

It’s three full years since President Trump was elected.

Among those who predicted he could never win the election — or that he might have been conspiring with Hillary Clinton all along, worked for Russia’s President Vladimir Putin, would crash the U.S. stock market his first week in office, would ban all Muslims, would send illegal immigrants home en masse on buses and trains, and would start a nuclear war — there have been real concerns.

But to others, there are different concerns that have borne out. We continue to get evidence of an orchestrated effort among government insiders and the well-connected to take down President Trump at all costs. The public evidence indicates that the effort was hatched even before he took office.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That this madness is still playing out in Foggy Bottom, demonstrates the lengths to which the Dementocrats will go, to bring this Presidency down, and right the hell now.

Because without a clear, viable contender from the Democratic Party to run against him, Trump is very likely to win handily in 2020.

Nunes demands Schiff testify in private as part of House impeachment inquiry

EXCLUSIVE: The top Republican on the House Intelligence Committee has formally requested that the panel's chairman, Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., testify in a closed-door setting as part of the impeachment inquiry against President Trump.

Fox News has obtained a letter written by committee Ranking Member Devin Nunes, R-Calif., who demanded that Schiff appear for a deposition in private before lawmakers.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I wouldn't hold my breath, waiting for this to happen, but at least Nunes has "hurled the defy."

Facebook Communications Leaked Antitrust Behaviors, Admits 100 Developers Had Access To User Data

By Aaron Kesel

Facebook states that even after the company locked down its Groups’ application programming interface (API) last year, some app developers retained improper access to information about the site’s millions of members, according to a Facebook blog post.

Facebook notes that roughly 100 developers might have accessed user information since Facebook changed its rules in April of 2018, and at least 11 of those devs accessed member data in the last 60 days. Facebook now says it has cut all partners off from that data.

Facebook Group administrators are able to use third-party tools to manage their groups, giving apps information about its users’ activity. However, since the changes last year, developers shouldn’t be able to see individual members’ names, profile pictures, or unspecified other profile data...

Amazon is accused of 'promoting pedophilia' by selling children's T-shirts and BABY ONESIES that have 'Daddy's Little Sl*t' printed on them

A children's T-shirt with 'Daddy's Little Sl*t' printed on the front was being sold on Amazon by the third-party retailer Onlybabycare
The product description claimed the $18 top was 'suitable' for various occasions, including baby showers, birthday parties, and baptisms
Journalist Yashar Ali drew attention to the horrific clothing item by sharing a screenshot of the children's shirt on Twitter on Thursday
People were outraged and quick to share their disgust with Amazon
Although the controversial shirt was later removed, other Twitter users pointed out the phrase is still featured on other children's clothing items on the site.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is absolutely sick; and all the marketing people at Amazon signed off on this?!?

PIERS MORGAN: In one brutally ballsy talk-show appearance, Donald Trump Jr. gave us a stunning View of barefaced lying liberal celebrity hypocrisy - and it wasn't a pretty sight

Even before Donald Trump Jr. appeared on The View yesterday, liberal celebrities were howling their fury.

Will and Grace actress Debra Messing, who hasn't stopped hysterically raging about all things Trump for the past four years, was incensed the President's son was even allowed to go on at all.

'Why would you bring him on?' she tweeted the ABC show's Twitter account. 'You trying to be 'balanced'?'

You could almost feel the bile laced all over her lips as she spat out the dreaded b-word.

Messing is an expert in disappointing and irresponsible decisions.

A few weeks ago, she demanded the Hollywood Reporter publish the names of everyone attending a Trump fundraiser in Beverly Hills. Her Will and Grace co-star Eric McCormack revealed the sinister motive behind this demand: 'Kindly report on everyone attending this event, so the rest of us can be clear about who we don't wanna work with. Thx.'

Webmaster's Commentary: 

God bless Whoopi Goldberg for "having had the sand" to remind people about the
McCarthy era, and what this kind of legacies these kinds of witch hunts can create.

Las Vegas becomes first major city to make it a crime to sleep or camp out on the streets as it moves to tackle the homeless crisis blighting cities across America

Las Vegas officials passed a law on Wednesday the first in the US that will make it illegal for homeless people to sleep on streets when beds are available at established shelters.

The measure will apply to the city's downtown urban core, not the tourist-heavy Las Vegas Strip, which is overseen by a different jurisdiction.

Las Vegas becomes the latest city in the US West - from San Francisco and Seattle to Honolulu and Salt Lake City - to try to deal with complaints about homelessness.

The 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals struck down a similar law from Boise, Idaho, last year - calling it unconstitutional to prosecute people for sleeping in public places when there aren't enough shelter beds.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is just going to make the homeless crisis in Vegas worse, not better.

What happens where there are no beds at community shelters, and what happens to those who have no housing whatsoever?!?!?

Families Of Cartel-Assault Victims Insist Deadly Attack "Was No Accident"

Contrary to our expectations, the slaying of nine members of a Mormon community living in Northern Mexico at the hands of Mexican cartel gunmen seems to have already dropped out of the news cycle, perhaps because it's already become clear that neither the US nor Mexico is planning to hold the attackers accountable.

Senior Mexican security officials who are obviously worried about more bad press insist that the attack was a case of mistaken identity. But keep in mind, these are the same people who initially told the world that federal police just happened to stumble upon the son of El Chapo in Culiacan (denying that his arrest had been the target of an organized operation).

Security Minister Alfonso Durazo, whose name has been in the press frequently in the aftermath of the attack, said earlier this week that the gunmen may have attacked the women because they suspected they were members of a rival gang during a period of intense turf wars.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Prayers for all who were killed, wounded, and all family/friends affected by this horrific attack; but I have to wonder; did the Cartel ordering the hit think that this Mormon family saw or heard something which justified their assassinations?

And with babies on board?!?

Were I part of a "Mormon dissident family", I would be thinking about leaving Mexico, and just as soon as was humanly possible.

Facebook Removes News Reporting, Mention of Alleged ‘Whistleblower’s’ Identity

Facebook is removing any mention of the potential whistleblower’s name and is cracking down against Facebook publishers that mention any allegation of the potential whistleblower’s name, claiming they are violating Facebook’s Community Standards and Policies.

For example, on Wednesday evening, Facebook removed Breitbart posts reporting on the fact other respected news outlets have reported the identity of the alleged whistleblower is Eric Ciaramella. Any Facebook user who attempts to click on that article on Facebook is now given a message that says, “this content isn’t available at the moment.”

To be clear, Breitbart did not “out” the alleged whistleblower but did provide additional relevant reporting about him; he is, after all, a public figure, having served on the National Security Council. Moreover, his name has been used in the Mueller report (p283) and Ambassador Bill Taylor’s testimony.

Pentagon: Revenue From Syrian Oil Will Go to Kurdish SDF, Not US

Pentagon spokesman Jonathan Hoffman told reporters on Thursday that while the US continues to expand its presence in and around east Syria with an aim of protecting and controlling the oil fields, the US won’t be keeping the money.

“The revenue from this is not going to the US, this is going to the SDF,” Hoffman said, suggesting the US-backed Kurds will get all the money. That’s still entirely speculative, however, because no US company has expressed any willingness to extract the oil in the first place.

It’s also not what has been sold to the US by President Trump. Trump has insisted that the US would be keeping some of the oil for itself, telling crowds recently that it would amount to $45 million a month and that it was always his intention to “keep the oil.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I frankly think that the Pentagon is "shopping the scenario" of the Kurds getting the money from these oil fields, to try to compensate for the lousy "taste in the mouth" from smaller countries world wide, who are wondering right now; "OK, if the US has decided it can expropriate/steal Syria's oil with no backlash, and since we don't have much of a "standing army", when will the US invade our country for our resources?!?"

The question is absolutely legitimate, given the current US international policies right now.

US Claims Iran Preparing ‘Nuclear Breakout: Pompeo demands world powers act against Iran

Iran restarted enrichment at the underground Fordow site overnight on Wednesday, and on Thursday US officials were accusing Iran of preparing a “nuclear breakout” situation the international community must unite against.

The concept of the “nuclear breakout” has always been ill-defined, but rests on the notion that at some point Iran would have such a substantial civilian nuclear program that it would be tantamount to an irreversible military program. Though it’s not clear that’s even theoretically possible, as nations like Canada and Japan have never been accused of approaching a “breakout” despite huge nuclear programs, attaching the label to Iran has been popular with US hawks and Israel.

The breakout idea is meant to push a narrative in which action, presumably a war, needs to be launched quickly. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo took the lead in urging other world powers to do something to force Iran back into compliance with the P5+1 deal.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

(Sigh)Mike, Mike, Mike, Mike, Mike; please who rescinded their agreement to the PO5 +1 agreement, initially?!? Are you having a hard time remembering this, and would you like something approximating rational logic with which you can examine Iran's reasons for doing what it is doing?!?, as you look at this situation?

Well, sir, perhaps not, given your recent penchant for hubristic tirades about everything, but let me brake it down for you, if you are having a problem.

On May 8th, 2018, President Trump rescinded US support for the P5 + 1 agreement, and dropped out of the agreement.

It’s official: President Trump is pulling the United States out of the Iran nuclear deal.

This was, of course, premised on statements made by then-Israeli Premier, who , of course, charged, Iran with "having lied" about its nuclear program (as if Netanyahu was not always lying, or, equivocating on Israel's nuclear program; I smell some very choice A, bovine excrement about to hit the ventilation shaft, but let's see what Netanyahu had to say back in April 2018 on this): Netanyahu/Israel says IOran lied on nuclear arms, and pressures the US to scrap the deal

The article goes on to state: " Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu unveiled on Monday what he said was evidence of a secret Iranian nuclear weapons program that could step up pressure on the United States to pull out of a 2015 nuclear deal with Iran."

"U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said the information showed that Iran’s leaders lied to their people about a nuclear weapons program known as “Project Amad”. But Pompeo declined to say whether the documents provided evidence of a violation of the nuclear deal."

Intelligence experts and diplomats said Netanyahu’s presentation, in a prime-time television presentation, did not seem to have a “smoking gun” showing a violation by Iran but it could strengthen the hand of advisers to U.S. President Donald Trump who want to scrap the nuclear agreement.

Which was why this j'accuse/dossier was created in the first place.

Most of the purported evidence Netanyahu presented dated to the period before the 2015 accord was signed, although he said Iran had also kept important files on nuclear technology since then, and continued adding to its “nuclear weapons knowledge”.

None of the foregoing was strong enough actually be considered "real evidence"; we are looking at hearsay; half-truths; and material allegedly documenting some of Iran's nuclear programs which were developed way before the 2015 Agreement.

So Secretary of State Pompeo, I have (shudder, sir, here it comes) a logical question; if the US has rescinded its support for the P5 +1 deal, why should Iran abide by it?!? Forgive me, Secretary, but where is the logic, the quid pro quo in this threat against Iran?!?

The short answer, sir, is that there is no logic in the US's position that Iran should observe the treaty, while the US has withdrawn from it; sorry, but it makes absolutely zero sense to thinking people.

And Secretary Pompeo, I would respectfully suggest, that if the US government is thinking about a war against Iran, including a decap-strike against Tehran, that perhaps they should just suck it up, and not do it.

The reason I am making this statement, is the reality that one of Russia's top officials, last June, which made the observation that if Iran is attacked by the US, that Russia would come to its aid.

Iran won't be a lone if the US Attacks, Russian Official Says. This promise was made to Iran by Zamir Kabulov, the Foreign Ministry’s special envoy for Asian countries including Iran, said at a Russian-Iranian policy forum in Moscow.

And trust me, Sec Def Pompeo; this man hardly inhales air, before Putin tells him it is OK to exhale.

Report: Fox News Management Forbids Hosts from Using Alleged Name of Ukraine ‘Whistleblower’

Fox News Channel management have ordered network hosts to refrain from using the alleged name of the so-called “whistleblower” — reported to be Eric Ciaramella — who sparked the House Democrats’ partisan impeachment investigation into President Donald Trump, according to a report.

CNN Business states that while some Fox News personalities want to use the name reportedly linked to the “whistleblower” complaint, bosses have warned against the move. On October 31, an unnamed executive emailed staff that the network had not “independently confirmed [the] name or identification of the anonymous whistleblower” and advised to “NOT fulfill any video or graphic requests” in connection to the so-called “whistleblower’s” identity, according to the report.

War Propaganda: “Fake News” and the Pentagon’s Office of Strategic Influence (OSI)

A declassified document from the CIA archives in the form of a letter from a CIA task force addressed to the Director of the Central Intelligence Agency details the close relationship that exists between the CIA and mainstream media and academia.

The document states that the CIA task force “now has relationships with reporters from every major wire service, newspaper, news weekly, and television network in the nation,” and that “this has helped us turn some ‘intelligence failure’ stories into ‘intelligence success” stories,’ and has contributed to the accuracy of countless others.” Furthermore, it explains how the agency has “persuaded reporters to postpone, change, hold, or even scrap stories that could have adversely affected national security interests or jeopardized sources and methods.”

At auction: Putin’s executive order to take Crimea from Ukraine

Russian President Vladimir Putin’s controversial 2014 decree that cleared the way for the annexation of Crimea from Ukraine, which still draws international outrage, is going on the auction block.

The personally signed order tucked neatly into an ornate leather binder could bring as much as $8,000-$10,000, according to Alexander Historical Auctions, hosting the online auction Nov. 19-21.

Alexander Auctions President Bill Panagopulos described his unusual item this way:

An historic modern Russian document with repercussions still affecting the world today, Vladimir Putin's executive order creating the Ministry of Crimean Affairs and integrating the economic, financial, credit and legal systems of the Crimea with that of the Russian Federation. Putin essentially inextricably merges Crimea's economy and courts with those of Russia, making any future return of Crimea to Ukraine nearly impossible.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

(Sign) Paul, Paul, Paul, the author of this piece of codswallop, were we having one hell of a case of SMD (selective memory disorder) before you" put this ripe tripe to bed?!?"

Apparently, you are choosing NOT to remember the following, and I would bet that your inner two year old is about to have a raging temper tantrum, because of the following FACTS, Paul:

FACT: Washngton was behind the coup in 2014, and Obama admits that there was a US-brokered deal in support of regime change

FACT: post-putch which put Poroshenko in charge of Ukraine in 2014, the Crimeans smelled "foul" as they knew the "election" was a regime change writ large, and that no semblance of justice could ever come out of Kiev again with that corrupt bunch which had grabbed the gonads of power here.

So what did the Crimean people do, Paul?!? And why the hell did you not know this, or ar you choosing not to mention this, because it does not fit your, and the Deep State's "agenda" here?!?

They did two things, Paul; FACT: the Crimeans held a referendum to determine if they wanted to stay with Ukraine post-putsch, or petition the Russian Federation to join it. Overwhelmingly, they voted to leave Ukraine, and petition the Russian Federation. 2014:
Crimean status Referendum

Paul, I don't get it; you are supposed to be some kind of arbiter of truth, as a journalist; not a mole for the deep state; and if this information was available to me with a cursory search on line, my question is, WHY WAS IT NOT AVAILABLE TO YOU?!?

No, Paul; you are either intellectually lazy beyond belief, or paid very well to lie to the American people, or both.

And that last, nearly nearly breathlessly hysterical paragraph I cited, made it look like what Russia did here, was an horrendously bad thing to do, when this is precisely what the Crimean people wanted Putin, and Russia to do.

And has your MONSTER case of SMD caused you to conveniently forget, that both Russia and the US are signatories to the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights which includes peaceful self-determination as one of its cornerstones, which is precisely what Crimea did here, with its referendum, and petition to the Russian Federation for membership?!?

So, given your proclivities to always want to characterize Russia as "bad and wrong", will your next move be to "encourage" President Trump to rescind the US's membership in the UN?!?

Sir, you either deliberately got this hellaciously wrong, or you didn't have a clue; in either case, this article is nothing more than a vehicle for propping up the agenda that "Russia is Always Bad!!". an agenda, which cannot be supported by the facts of this case.

Joe diGenova says 'explosive' FISA report will 'ruin careers'

Former U.S. Attorney Joe diGenova anticipates an "explosive" Justice Department inspector general report on alleged Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act abuses.

After it was reported Wednesday that a public copy is expected to be released at about Thanksgiving or later, diGenova appeared with his wife and legal partner, Victoria Toensing, on Fox Business to talk about what they have heard.

Host Lou Dobbs asked diGenova to describe his expectations for the report's findings.

"I would say explosive," he replied. "And I would say for people at the highest levels of the FBI and at the highest levels of the Justice Department — more important the Justice Department — it's going to be devastating. It's going to ruin careers.

Tucker Carlson broke an exclusive tonight on the ongoing Democrat Party impeachment inquisition.

According to Tucker Carlson a Democrat staffer contacted by email the fired Ukrainian ambassador to Ukraine, Marie Yovanovitch, and asked for some time to discuss a “delicate” issue days after “whistleblower” Eric Ciaramella filed his complaint against President Trump.

The Tucker Carlson team acquired a copy of the email from that Democratic staffer to Yovanovitch. This was sent by private email to the former ambassador.

Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY) asked Ambassador Yovanovitch about the email during her testimony before Adam Schiff’s impeachment committee.

This whole cocked-up complaint is nothing more than a web of absolute lies, interwoven with half truths.

Testimony bombshell: Obama administration tried to partner with Hunter Biden’s Ukrainian gas firm but was blocked over corruption concerns

A State Department official who served in the U.S. embassy in Kiev told Congress that the Obama administration tried in 2016 to partner with the Ukrainian gas firm that employed Hunter Biden but the project was blocked over corruption concerns.

George Kent, the former charge d’affair at the Kiev embassy, said in testimony released Thursday that the State Department’s main foreign aid agency, known as USAID, planned to co-sponsor a clean energy project with Burisma Holdings, the Ukrainian gas firm that employed Hunter Biden as a board member.

At the time of the proposed project, Burisma was under investigation in Ukraine for alleged corruption. Those cases were settled in late 2016 and early 2017. Burisma contested allegations of corruption but paid a penalty for tax issues.
