This Time, They Went Too Far (Video)

The American economy is not getting any better. In the midst of all this, we have large globalist corporate empires looking to impose their own narrative on the world. Those who don’t comply and advance the narrative are subject to financial discrimination that basically results in de facto censorship. Right now, social media companies like Facebook, Twitter, and Google are on the warpath for anyone who doesn't see eye to eye with them ideologically. This isn’t just hearsay either, we have the data to prove it.

In the following video, Right Wing News gives you an inside look into his YouTube dashboard to show you how his videos are being targeted. In a matter of days, CPM drops to near zero; with no changes made by him whatsoever! Drastic action is being taken, and the channel will likely be renamed, but this all-out assault by the far-left on free speech has GOT to stop!

The War on Yemen and the Senate Vote on the Saudi Arms Sale

The good news from Tuesday’s vote is that there is now much broader opposition to selling weapons to the Saudis when there is every reason to expect that those weapons will be used in Yemen. Sens. Murphy, Paul, and Franken have done great work in persuading many more of their colleagues to oppose such sales, and if they can continue to bring more senators over to their side the Senate may well block one of these sales before long. A close vote on this issue makes it much more likely that there can be a real debate over U.S. support for the atrocious and unnecessary Saudi-led war.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is no good news for the people of Yemen, and the Unhinged Surveilled States of America's "deep state"is still supporting Saudi Arabia's attempt to push back against the Houthi rebels, and forcefully reinstall the US government's puppet, Mansour Al-Hadi, by whatever means necessary.

This has translated into the following for the Yemeni people.

1. Yemeni children are getting killed and maimed for life.

2. Because Saudis, with US military assistance, are blocking Yemeni ports, so no food can get in, Yemeni children are starving to death from malnutrition.

Horrifying images of starving children reveal the ongoing toll of Yemen's forgotten war.

3. Because of this malnutrition, Yemeni children are dying of cholera, and other preventable diseases.

Oh, and did I mention that Saudi Arabia is using depleted uranium weapons in Yemen?!?

These depleted uranium weapons are having the same effect that the use of these weapons did on pregnant women, and their children (and on US service members and their families) did in Falluja, Iraq, which meant massive stillbirths, cancers, and horrific physical mutations:

When the intended consequences of a military campaign is the deliberate slaughter of children, through direct shelling; creating malnutrition and disease; and chemically poisoning them in the womb, as is happening through the joint US/Saudi war crimes in Yemen, you destroy the future of that country; ask the Palestinians, they are pretty familiar with that.

2016 'deadliest year' for West Bank children in decade

I am frankly appalled at just how morally comfortable the Royal House of Saud, the US Government, and the Saudi Government, collectively, appear to be with this genocide.

I, however, am very morally uncomfortable, being a citizen of a country which is actively, and aggressively, colluding in war crimes,and particularly war crimes of this magnitude.

Democratic consultant unapologetic for ‘hunt Republican’ posts

A Democratic consultant from Union County says that he refuses to apologize for Twitter posts he made with the hashtags #HuntRepublicans and #HuntRepublicanCongressman.

“Sometimes you have to push them back,” says Jim Devine, a Democratic strategist from Rahway.

But sometimes the pushback turns into violence, according to top leaders in the New Jersey State House.

“The people who are serious threats, it’s unlikely they’re going to give you a heads up,” says Assembly Republican Leader Jon Bramnick.

Politicians say that they are particularly concerned after House Majority Whip Steve Scalise and three others were shot at a GOP baseball practice in Alexandria, Virginia earlier this week. The shooter was supposedly targeting Republican politicians.

Devine made the Twitter posts announcing it hunting season on Republicans just hours after Wednesday’s shooting.

BOOM!! Protesters INTERRUPT Trump Assassination Play – RUSH STAGE — Screaming “Goebbels Would Be Proud!

PROTESTER INTERRUPTS TRUMP ASSASSINATION PLAY IN CENTRAL PARK!
SCREAMING “STOP LIBERAL VIOLENCE! — GOEBBELS WOULD BE PROUD! — YOU’RE A NAZI CROWD!!!”

The Shakespeare in the Park rendition of Julius Caesar is still scheduled to play this weekend in Central Park after the shooting of GOP Rep. Scalise by a devout Bernie Sanders supporter.

This year’s play “Julius Caesar” depicts President Donald Trump’s assassination.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am a big First Amendment supporter.

That having been said, when art crosses the line into open advocacy of the assassination of a sitting president, that is not only wrong; it is also illegal.

Threatening a sitting President of the United States is Illegal.

KIDS HORRIFIED AFTER COPS HOLD MOCK CHILD SEX TRAFFICKING DRILL, WITHOUT SAYING IT’S A DRILL

The Florida Highway Patrol is reviewing its presence at the Girls State Program after troopers conducted a kidnapping/human trafficking drill which went “horribly wrong” according to WFTV News Channel 9.

The girl’s program is attended by some of best and brightest high-schoolers Florida has to offer. “Everyone who’s going is at the top of their class,” Cameron Carlyle said describing the high-quality candidates who attend the elite leadership camp. But no amount of education could have prepared the girls for what happened on the last night of their training.

The Girls State director along with six Florida State Troopers, all female, pulled an attendee aside and told her she would be participating in a kidnapping drill, one which highlighted the real-world problem of sex trafficking. Under the cover of secrecy, the volunteer named “Katrina” was taken to a safe place. Thereafter, roll call was taken with the remaining girls.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Were I a parent of one of these young women, I would have pulled my daughter out of that program, and their school, so quickly that it would make heads spin.

Sexual trafficking is a serious problem.

That being said, what the State Troopers should have done was to educate these young women about how they can avoid getting into situations where something like this could happen, and how to fight back, if they are abducted.

SPECIAL PROSECUTOR MUELLER IS A POLITICAL HACK

The New York Times characterizes special prosecutor Robert Mueller as being independent and fair:

Robert S. Mueller III managed in a dozen years as F.B.I. director to stay above the partisan fray, carefully cultivating a rare reputation for independence and fairness.
Let’s fact-check the Times …

ANTHRAX FRAME-UP

Mueller presided over the incredibly flawed anthrax investigation.

The U.S. Government Accountability Office says the FBI’s investigation was “flawed and inaccurate”. The investigation was so bogus that a senator called for an “independent review and assessment of how the FBI handled its investigation in the anthrax case.”

The head of the FBI’s anthrax investigation says the whole thing was a sham. He says that the FBI higher-ups “greatly obstructed and impeded the investigation”, that there were “politically motivated communication embargos from FBI Headquarters”.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation: Mueller has been hired to attempt a political assassination against President Trump.

With his vile track record so publicly revealed, however, this may not be as easy as Democrats may hope.

SWAMP CRITTERS GALORE: DEATH MERCHANT GUY TO HEAD UP TRUMP’S BUREAU OF INDUSTRY AND SECURITY

And creatures from the corporatist black lagoon just keep on coming.

In May, the Donald nominated Richard Ashooh to head up the Bureau of Industry and Security at the Commerce for Export Administration.

Here’s a little background on Ashooh:

In 1995, Ashooh joined New Hampshire defense contractor Sanders, which manufactured electronics for the military, working his way up to be vice president of government relations—a lobbyist. Sanders was purchased by Lockheed, which later spun it off to BAE Systems, with Ashooh remaining with the company. In 2001, he was director of public affairs in BAE Systems North America’s Information and Electronic Warfare Systems division. In January 2003, he moved from New Hampshire to Maryland as BAE’s vice president of legislative affairs to take advantage of his lobbying experience. Back in New Hampshire, he was the company’s vice president of strategic relations and homeland security.

Remember Trump’s lobbying ban?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These nominations are profoundly disappointing.

WHY MAINSTREAM MEDIA REPRESENTS THE VIEW OF BILLIONAIRES … INSTEAD OF AVERAGE AMERICANS

We noted yesterday that the Washington Post is owned by one of the world’s richest guys, worth $72.8 billion … and who may soon become THE world’s richest.

And you probably won’t hear it from the New York Times, but the largest shareholder of the Times is the sixth wealthiest guy … worth $54.5 billion. He used to be THE richest person, but he’s slipped a little in the rankings.

It’s not just the Post and the Times …

Noam Chomsky points out that big status quo-loving corporations own the media, cater to other big status quo-loving advertisers, and filter out stories which question the status quo. Extreme media consolidation has made the problem worse than ever before. And see this.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is why the independent media is more critically important than ever; we tend to examine those issues which are 100% Kryptonite to the presstitutes of the corporate media, and their financial vested interests.

QATAR-SAUDI CATFIGHT UNVEILS WESTERN TERRORIST PROPAGANDA

The Saudi paper Al-Arabiya identifies Kareem as Qatar supported Al-Qaeda member. Smearing Qatar is now the favorite Saudi past time. That Kareem is al-Qaeda member is not news to anyone who reads beyond CNN and other main stream outlets. Just watch his interview (vid) with the al-Qaeda in Syria chief ideologue Muhaysini and you know what he is about.

Richard Barrett and especially Charles Lister were his discussion partners. Both are long known to be (well paid) propagandists for the Jihadis. Brooking Institute with its Qatar paid Doha outlet wrote the U.S. strategy for overthrowing (with the help of Jihadis) the Syrian and Iranian governments: WHICH PATH TO PERSIA? Options for a New American - Strategy toward Iran (pdf).

CNN produced the propaganda piece for the "Syrian rebels" aka al-Qaeda with the help of al-Qaeda's Bilal Abdul Kareem and with Clarissa Ward staring in an al-Qaeda bridal.

Those are several cakes flying into many deserving faces.

"WOW: Crowd Starts Singing "Happy Birthday" to President Trump During His Cuba Speech"

Most politicians avoid the crowds after the election because campaigning is just a thing they faked and they don't really like being around the citizens. Trump on the other hand loves being with crowds of proud Americans, so much so that one of the first things he did after winning the most powerful position in the world was to go back to the people, thank them, and make sure they knew he meant every word he said.

Trump loves the people. He's having the time of his life just being around fellow Americans and feeling the high energy. His time off from the job of keeping promises is going back to the people he loves to tell them all about it.

US GENERAL WANTS 20,000 ADDITIONAL GROUND TROOPS SENT TO AFGHANISTAN

The US is definitely going to be sending more ground troops to Afghanistan soon, but the exact number is yet to be determined, with the Pentagon today backing away from media reports yesterday that they’d settled on a figure of 4,000 more troops, saying no final decisions have been made yet on numbers.

That might suggest they’re leaning toward an even bigger number, with influential retired Gen. Jack Keane suggesting that the US needed to send up to 20,000 more ground troops if they wanted to win the war, saying he believed the 4,000 figure was not likely to change the direction of the war.

Defense Secretary James Mattis conceded in testimony to the Senate this week that the US is “not winning” in Afghanistan, and President Trump has since given him unilateral authority to decide on troop levels and strategy. Mattis was seen as leaning toward the high end of escalation proposals.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US military is Afghanistan for the pipeline routes, with which to checkmate Russia; the embarrassment of riches provided by its mineral wealth; and the opium poppy trade.

IF NATO, or US leadership were smart, they would leave Afghanistan as quickly as safely possible, and negotiate with whatever government remained standing in Kabul for all of the above.

Of course, that...would be logical.

THE BLOCKADE OF QATAR MAY HAVE MORE TO DO WITH PALESTINE THAN WE THINK

Israeli officials must have been tripping over each other in their rush to endorse the Saudi-led blockade on Qatar. “The Sunni Arab countries, apart from Qatar, are largely in the same boat with us since we all see a nuclear Iran as the number one threat against all of us,” said Israel’s former defence minister Moshe Ya’alon. The blockade represented a “new line drawn in the Middle Eastern sand,” tweeted US-born former Israeli ambassador Michael Oren, while revelling in the regional turmoil. “No longer [is it] Israel against Arabs but Israel and Arabs against Qatar-financed terror,” he added.

In 1871, Antonio Meucci Was So Poor He Could Not Afford To Pay $10 To Renew His Telephone Patent. 130 Years Later, Congress Votes A Resolution Crediting Him As The True Inventor of The Telephone And That Bell Stole It From Him

In June 11, 2002 the House of Representatives of the U.S voted the resolution H.RES.269 acknowledging that the real inventor of the telephone is Antonio Meucci; not A.G.Bell as stated in the mainstream records. Meucci’s invention was called the “teletrofono” and had been demonstrated in 1860, then filed for patent in 1871. But the Italian inventor, living on public assistance, was not able to pursue the patenting process because he could not pay the 10 Dollars fee. In 1876, Alexander Graham Bell, who had been conducting experiments in the same laboratory where Meucci’s materials were stored, was granted a patent and credited as the formal inventor of the telephone.

Special Prosecutor Muller Seeking To Destroy Trump! (Video)

All the pundits are clapping their hands in glee after hearing the news that former FBI Director Robert Mueller was announced as the special counsel for the Russia investigation. There is little doubt that the desired outcome of the establishment is for Mueller to go after Trump hard, either with the tired and thoroughly disproved Russian collusion charges or the latest one, obstruction of justice. But why did they appoint Mueller to lead this witch hunt? Simple, Mueller is, and has always been, ‘their man’.

In the following video, Right Wing News looks at retired FBI special agent and division legal counsel Coleen Rowley’s scathing rebuke of Mueller’s and Comey’s credibility. Both these directors presided over numerous violations of Americans’ constitutional rights, including unlawful detainment, torture, and prosecution of whistleblowers. Of course, as a puppet for the establishment, Mueller is well suited to lead this witch hunt; but will the American public ever see the truth?

America Last

Will Trump Set a Record for the History Books?

In its own inside-out, upside-down way, it’s almost wondrous to behold. As befits our president’s wildest dreams, it may even prove to be a record for the ages, one for the history books. He was, after all, the candidate who sensed it first. When those he was running against, like the rest of Washington’s politicians, were still insisting that the United States remained at the top of its game, not an -- but the -- “indispensable nation,” the only truly “exceptional” one on the face of the Earth, he said nothing of the sort. He campaigned on America’s decline, on this country’s increasing lack of exceptionality, its potential dispensability. He ran on the single word “again” -- as in “make America great again” -- because (the implication was) it just isn’t anymore. And he swore that he and he alone was the best shot Americans, or at least non-immigrant white Americans, had at ever seeing the best of days again.

In that sense, he was our first declinist candidate for president>>>
***
If both the American global and domestic systems hadn’t been rotting out before Donald Trump arrived on the scene, that “again” of his wouldn’t have worked. Thought of another way, when the U.S. was truly at the height of its economic clout and power, American leaders felt no need to speak incessantly of how “indispensable” or “exceptional” the country was. It seemed too self-evident to mention. Someday, some historian may use those very words in the mouths of American presidents and other politicians (and their claims, for instance, that the U.S. military was “the finest fighting force that the world has ever known”) as a set of increasingly defensive markers for measuring the decline of American power.

So here’s the question: When the Trump years (months?) come to an end, will the U.S. be not the planet’s most exceptional land, but a pariah nation? Will that “again” still be the story of the year, the decade, the century? Will the last American Firster turn out to have been the first American Laster? Will it truly be one for the record books?

The Government Is Violent

Why are politicians – left and right – increasingly despised by reasonable people? Could it have anything to do with the fact that they will not leave people alone? That all they do – at great expense (to us) and with great pomposity – is decree how we will be allowed to live, what we must do and what we may not do? Most of these things being precisely none of their business to so order? -- But they believe that it – that everything – is their business, which endows them with an effrontery so great they’ve lost all of the normal restraints that bind ordinary people. We have arrived at a point in our history that absolutely nothing is off the table, beyond the grasping control of these professional grifters – which is what they are. These are not people who earn an honest living by free exchange of value for value, as most of the rest of us do. These are people who take vast sums of money and then dispose of vast sums of money – none of it theirs by right.

Forget the Russian ‘Threat’: Mexico Is Our Real Problem: The cartels control our southern neighbor

we hear almost nothing about the one country where journalists who report on official corruption are routinely killed, and in such numbers that the death toll makes Russia look like a utopian paradise – Mexico, where more than one-hundred reporters have been slaughtered by the drug cartels and their collaborators inside the Mexican government. The killers are rarely found, let alone punished: as of 2012, 98% of homicides in Mexico went unsolved. I doubt the impunity rate has improved much since then.

Tillerson: US Working for Regime Change in Iran

Speaking to the House Foreign Affairs Committee yesterday, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson was asked about whether or not the Trump Administration’s policy is one of trying to impose regime change on Iran. While Tillerson insisted that the specifics of administration policy on Iran are still under development, he did confirm that the goal remains regime change.

Exactly how they expect to pull that off remains to be seen, but Tillerson said the US policy as it stands is to rely on “elements inside of Iran” who can be supported toward the end goal of regime change, with the hope it would be a “peaceful transition of that government.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why does there seem to be such a huge blood lust, on the part of the Deep State of the Unhinged Surveilled States of America, to go to war with Russia, to which an attack against Iran will almost inevitably lead?!?!?

Because it is on Israel's "US to-do list"?!?

Israel wants to see Iran regime changed, but constantly insists that this only happen through American blood, and American money.

US may attack Syrian troops with multiple rocket launchers — Russian Defense MinistryMore:http://tass.com/defense/951642

The United States may attack Syrian government troops with the HIMARS multiple rocket launchers moved to the al-Tanf military base in Syria from Jordan, the Russian Defense Ministry said in a statement on Thursday.

"The Russian Defense Ministry has been keeping an eye on the situation along the Syrian-Jordanian border," the statement said.

The US earlier relocated two High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems from Jordan to the military base located near the city of al-Tanf, 18 kilometers from the Jordanian border.

According to the Russian Defense Ministry, "the deployment of any foreign weapons to Syria’s territory should be agreed with the country’s government."

This move appears to indicate the US desiring a wider war against the Syrian government, which will most probably mean war against Russia.

Yemen cholera toll nears 1,000 as 'humanity loses out to politics'

The death toll from a cholera outbreak is approaching 1,000 in Yemen, a war-devastated and impoverished country where "humanity is losing out to politics", a senior UN official said Thursday.

"Time is running out to save people who are being killed or being starved and now you have cholera as well adding to that complication," said Jamie McGoldrick, UN humanitarian coordinator in Yemen.

"We are struggling because of the lack of resources. We need some action immediately," he said at a press briefing in the Jordanian capital.

McGoldrick gave updated figures of more than 130,000 suspected cases of cholera and over 970 deaths, with women and children accounting for half of the numbers.

"What is heartbreaking in Yemen is that humanity is losing out to the politics," said McGoldrick.

The use of these weapons is causing a predictable massive uptick in horrific physical and mental deformities in Yemen's newborns:

Massive birth defects expected in Yemeni children, courtesy of the Saudi use of depleted uranium weapons.

There is a brutal ugliness in this criminal Saudi war of attrition in Yemen, one which barely gets whispered about.

But as a Christian witness to this immoral and illegal war, which is deliberately murdering and maiming Yemeni children; which is deliberately starving Yemeni children to the point of malnutrition, disease and death; and deliberately poisoning Yemeni children in the womb with depleted uranium weapons, I feel compelled to speak the truth about what has been going on here.

And President Trump is so completely, absolutely, and horrifically on the wrong side of history here, I cannot begin to articulate it. His "bromance" with Saudi royals, on his first foreign trip, as a way to push more American weapons on them, just sickened me.

That he, and the US and Saudi governments are so morally comfortable with this genocide of Yemeni children reminds me very strongly of the statement made by the Papal Legate at the Catholic Church's siege of the Cathars at Montsegur. When information reached him that women and children were also in attendance where the men were being besieged, he responded: "Kill them all: God will find his own."

Leafly Interview: Dirty Trickster Roger Stone Talks Cannabis Legalization & Trump

Stone filed paperwork earlier this week with the Internal Revenue Service to create the United States Cannabis Coalition, a nonprofit political organization with the same tax-exempt status as super-PACs that influence politicians and elections.

Stone is scheduled to detail the USCC's plans in a keynote speech today at the Cannabis World Congress and Business Exposition in New York.

He spoke with Leafly on Thursday about his legalization advocacy and his new group.
For Trump, but Against Sessions
Stone said he's troubled by Attorney General Jeff Sessions recent request to Congress to grant him authority to prosecute medical cannabis patients in states in which the botanical drug is legal in direct opposition to a 2013 memo from President Barack Obama's Attorney General upholding states rights. Stone called Sessions request devastating.

United States, China to Meet Wednesday on North Korea

U.S. and Chinese diplomatic and defense chiefs will meet Wednesday for a security dialogue that Washington says will focus on curbing North Korea's nuclear and missile programs.

The talks in Washington will involve U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis, as well as China's top diplomat, State Councilor Yang Jiechi, and General Fang Fenghui, chief of state of the People's Liberation Army, the U.S. State Department said.

It will be the inaugural session of the U.S.-China Diplomatic and Security Dialogue, a framework launched by President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping during a summit in Florida in April.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am hopeful that something concrete comes of these talks, and that Chinese President Xi Jinping has made good use of those "hundred days" he requested of President Trump to work things out with North Korea.

Report: Xi asked Trump for 100-day grace period on North Korea

Unfortunately, however, Kim Jun Un's rhetoric has not softened against the United States, but in fact, over the last several months, appears to be becoming more threatening, rather than less; this has not been helpful.

But if there is no real resolution with North Korea over its nuclear weapons program at the end of the 100 days for which Chinese President Xi Jinping asked, we may well be looking at a war scenario against North Korea. President Trump may believe that not going ahead with some sort of a regional consortium, including South Korea, and Japan, and perhaps, Australia, may cause him to "lose face", a very critical concept in Asian diplomacy.

HARVARD ANALYST ACCUSES THE CLINTONS OF 'LARGEST CHARITY FRAUD IN HISTORY'

An investigation into The Clinton Foundation by a financial analyst from Harvard University has revealed fraud on a "monumental scale", according to reports.
Charles Ortel claims to have evidence that Bill and Hillary Clinton have committed the largest case of charity fraud in American history.
Ortel, one of the world's leading financial experts, claims that the Clintons are also part of a global fraud networks that have acquired billions in fraudulent profits.

Wall St On Parade reports: In a 9-page letter dated yesterday and posted on his blog, Ortel calls the Clintons’ charity the "largest unprosecuted charity fraud ever attempted," adding for good measure that the Clinton Foundation is part of an "international charity fraud network whose entire cumulative scale (counting inflows and outflows) approaches and may even exceed $100 billion, measured from 1997 forward."

Ortel lists 40 potential areas of fraud or wrongdoing that he plans to expose.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I just hope Ortel is wearing his Kevlar undies these days; doesn't plan on flying in small planes; and isn't getting "depressed".

People who get too close to the ugly reality of what the Clinton Cartel is doing, or has done, have a tendency to wind up quite dead.

'We don't know whether to stay or get the hell out': Terrified residents of buildings with the SAME cladding as Grenfell Tower fear for their safety as fire expert calls for 'deadly' tinder box sheets on high rises to be ripped off immediately

Tinder box cladding wrapped around buildings should be ripped down immediately because thousands of lives could be at risk, one of Britain's top fire experts told MailOnline today.

Grenfell Tower in White City had insulated aluminium panels installed on the outside by East Sussex-based company Harley Facades Limited - but it ignited 'like a firelighter' after a fridge exploded yesterday.

Today it emerged that the same company, and the main contractor Rydon, did the same work at dozens of other buildings including scores of high-rise blocks housing thousands.

Four 23-storey tower blocks in Camden, north London were refurbished with the cladding at a cost of £16 million, raising fears for the safety of thousands other residents.

ALEX JONES GETS JUMP ON MEGYN KELLY - LEAKS RECORDINGS TO SET THE RECORD STRAIGHT

After NBC's Megyn Kelly lied to Alex Jones about the scope and purpose of an upcoming Father's Day airing of his sit-down interview for Sunday Night With Megyn Kelly, the Infowars host set the record straight on Thursday night - preempting Kelly's segment with 'leaked' recordings of their conversations before she could smear Jones on Sunday.

The Setup

As Jones and Kelly began to discuss the details of the NBC interview, Kelly played the part of earnest lawyer turned plucky journalist - batting her eyelashes and insisting her new show was about profiling 'interesting people' so the public can get to know them better.

LAWSUIT ACCUSES PRIVATE PRISON COMPANY OF ILLEGALLY FUNDING A TRUMP SUPER-PAC

It’s no secret that President Donald Trump has been very good for private prison executives. After the Justice Department announced earlier this year that it would continue using private lockups—a reversal of an Obama policy announced in 2016—prison companies’ stock prices soared. Now, a campaign finance watchdog is suing to figure out whether one of these prison companies influenced the Trump administration’s policy reversal by donating large sums to a pro-Trump super-PAC during the 2016 presidential campaign.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is troubling.

But the worst part of this is, neither public nor private prisons work; that is because, conceptually, they are based on failed, stupid, and broken notions of what prisons are supposed to do, which cannot possibly prepare former prisoners for returning successfully to the outside world. Therefore, the lack of rehabilitation causes US recidivism to skyrocket.

The American penal system has never quite been able to distinguish between "punishment" and "rehabilitation".

Other, much more enlightened countries, like Sweden, are thoroughly focused on prisoner rehabilitation, so when they are released, there is far less recidivism in the former prison population.

3 REASONS AMERICA SOLD MILITARY JETS TO QATAR

Unlike Iran which has the mightiest military in the wider Middle East, arguably even more disciplined than that of Turkey, the military might of Qatar and Saudi Arabia, for all the money they lavish on arms, is broadly incompetent and incapable. The average citizens of the small State of Qatar let alone the larger Saudi Kingdom are simply not equipped for serious, let alone long term military combat.

The United States just completed a sale of military hardware, including fighter jets to the pseudo-isolated Qatari state in a deal worth $12 billion.

This comes shortly after Donald Trump called Qatar a terrorist sponsoring state. Of course both Qatar and Saudi Arabia sponsor terrorism and for that matter they sponsor many of the same terrorist groups including ISIS.

Why then did America go through with its lucrative transaction that will see top-notch military hardware placed into the hands of a country that the US President called a terrorist supporting regime?

The meeting had been gathered to plan routes for the exit of militants from Raqqa through the so-called “southern corridor.”

CBS ANCHOR BLAMES TRUMP'S TWEETS FOR CONGRESSIONAL BASEBALL FIELD SHOOTING

Now this is the sort of journalism that gets the blood pumping. Scott Pelley from SHEE-BEE-ESH News asked the question last night, 'Was the congressional shootings self inflicted?' To prove his case, Pelley didn't cite the endless barrage of violent protest by leftists in the streets or Democratic politicians calling for 'resistance.' Instead, Pelley called into question President Trump's tweets, especially one that said the enemy of America was the media -- as the millstone from which killers like Hodgkinson drew energy from to activate into seditious violence.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When corporate media does not tell the truth, it becomes the enemy of the American people.

And the American media has been utterly devious at not telling the truth, although that is becoming harder to do with the rising of the independent media.

You can always count on the corporate presstitutes to do their job, and regurgitate precisely what the government tells them to.

Remember when they told us that "Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction", as the lie to kick off the war against Iraq?!?

Remember when they told us that Afghanistan had to be invaded "because of 9/11 and Osama bin Laden"?!?

These were simply lies spun on a then-innocent, and somewhat gullible country, to kick off two horrific wars, in which, by the way, we are still participating. Sec General Mattis has just ordered another 4,000 troops for Afghanistan, and God only knows what is really happening on the ground in Iraq.

The blood and money spent on these wars have been unconscionable and immoral in the extreme.

I have to wonder how many lies Pelley told the American people in his reporting on the first decade of the Afghanistan war.

Pelley: A decade of reporting from Afghanistan

Please remember: CBS is a CIA asset.

By far the most valuable of these associations, according to CIA officials, have been with the New York Times, CBS and Time Inc.

So right now, anything Mr. Pelley chooses to say about the horrific assassination attempts in Virginia is immediately both tainted, and extremely questionable, for having been a willing operative for CBS, a CIA asset, issuing reports engineered to "sell" the war in Afghanistan to Americans as "a good war", no matter the horrific cost in blood, and money.

Transgendered track star proves we’re all insane

Imagine this: Your daughter has been training and running track for four years. She’s a senior and she’s made it to the state finals. College recruiters are in the stands and this is her day to shine (and possibly get a scholarship so you don’t have to go bankrupt trying to fund her education). Except that doesn’t happen for her because a boy, claiming to be a girl, handily steals the title from her. She’s devastated, but when asked how she feels about it, she’s terrified to be truthful that she (rightly) feels she was robbed by someone who shouldn’t have been competing against her.

WHEN GENERALS MAKE POLICIES - FROM TACTICS TO STRATEGY TO POLITICAL DECISION

The U.S. has a problem with the former Marine General Mattis as Secretary of Defense. Mattis thinks tactics, not strategy.

It makes little sense to send additional troops when one does not what strategy they will have to serve. There is so far no other way to end the war in Afghanistan other than to simply pull out of it. The racket that the war has become can only be stopped by such a grand strategic decision. Sending troops before deciding on the strategy practically guarantees that the choice of a pull-out will be excluded from the evaluated possibilities. The tactical decision of sending more troops will drive the strategy.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am very deeply concerned that the goal of the Deep State in the Unhinged, Surveilled States of America,is actually getting into
wars against China and Russia, to check the rise of the Yuan and Ruble in the international monetary world.

The problem is, at this point in its history, the US military does not have the money; the troop strength; the weaponry; or the manufacturing to effect a positive outcome with a conventional war against Russia and/or China.

The culture of American weapons manufacturers gives the heads of these corporations the luxury of believing that weapons and planes delivered so late, as to be obsolete, when delivered, is perfectly fine, coupled with mass cost overruns.

As a Christian pacifist activist, I abhor war as a way to resolve geopolitical differences, and always advocate for clean, clear, hard-won negotiations. That being said, if America is to be successful at war, this has got to change.

The Russian and Chinese governments are spending far less on their weapons and related systems than does the USSA, but definitely getting infinitely more bang for their weapons buck.

And what do Americans get for their tax dollar?!? I give you Lockheed Martin's F-35.

Justice or revenge: Relatives demand punishment after US troops shoot dead Afghan father & 2 sons

The US Military,poorly trained,poorly disciplined. When they get into a fight with a modern military they will have their heads and butts handed to them. Allowing themselves to be enveloped and flanked in Syria shows how unprofessional they are. As does this incident.

The relatives of an Afghan father and two of his sons, who they say were killed and disfigured by heavy US fire in the country's Nangarhar province, told RT they demand the American troops be punished. The US military says it's unaware of civilian casualties.

Zir Gul and his sons were basically torn apart by the US gunfire, with his uncle Ghulam Ahmad saying: It was horrible what the Americans did to them. Even I couldn't recognize their bodies.The tragedy left 12 of Zir Gul's children, six sons and as many daughters, without their provider.

The kids who are now facing a struggle for survival, are both shocked by their father's death and full of anger.
