You’ll never guess where Trump's leaked tax returns came from

After receiving leaked copies of Donald Trump’s 2005 tax returns, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist David Cay Johnston released them into the world.

Where the much-coveted document came from remains a mystery, as did the goal of the leak. Was it someone who wanted to harm the president’s reputation? Could Trump himself have dropped the envelope into the mail?

Eagle-eyed sleuths looking for clues noted that the envelope itself revealed a curious tidbit: It came from Westchester.

Greece: A Democracy In Crisis

The Greek people have just about reached the limits of their strength. The economic situation is tragic. Illegal immigration is out of control, criminality increases day by day. The political system is steeped in corruption and the media have stopped being the communication channel between citizens and the political system. The Greek media are functioning as the praetorian guard of the euro; they favor the massive admission of Muslim populations into Greece and they fiercely attack every voice that disagrees with them.

Bishop Ambrossios is urging people to revolt. He characterizes the illegal Muslim immigrants entering the country as conquerors. He also says that Christianity is under attack in Greece, while Islam is being daily reinforced. He says that Greek Orthodox churches are being desecrated, robbed and burned by Muslim immigrants while the state just sits by and looks on.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Greek people are in IMF debt slavery through no fault of their own; they were placed there, through a complex swindle by Goldman Sachs. As reported at the sandiegofreepress.com in May of 2015:

It all started when Goldman Sachs assisted Greece in lying their way into the Eurozone in the first place. They really didn’t qualify for admission but Goldman hid that small detail under a heap of trompe l’oeil, sleight of hand and financial shananigans that got past the critical eyes of the European ministers. They manufactured a highly questionable derivative scheme involving a currency swap that used artificially high exchange rates to conceal Greek debt. Goldman then turned around and hedged its bets by shorting Greek debt just as they had done with the mortgage crisis in the US. Predictably, these derivative bets went very wrong for the less sophisticated of the two players, namely, Greece. A 2.8 billion loan to Greece in 2001 became a 5.1 billion debt by 2005. In the US mortgage fiasco they packaged subprime loans in portfolios, after having loaned money to people with questionable ability to pay back the loans, and then bet that they would default. Goldman made tons of money that way. Now this operation on the part of Goldman should come as no surprise to those familiar with Goldman’s shenanigans leading up to the debt crisis of 2008 in which they packaged a bunch of mortgages that were designed to fail into collateralized debt obligations, sold them off to unsuspecting investors and then turned around and placed bets against them. Such a deal was the Abacus fund designed by John Paulson who made billions on it. The American government then bailed out the too big to fail Wall Street banks while leaving the underwater mortgagees to dangle from a fiscal rope. They did the same thing with Greece. They loaned Greece big bucks for its 2004 Olympic Games. Greece also borrowed a lot of money for its military. In retrospect it was foolish of Greece to borrow all this money. It never got a return on its investment from the Olympic games which it thought would encourage tourism. The Olympic site essentially became a heap of trash and rubble.

What the Greek government should do is declare the debt odious, wipe it off the books, as did Iceland, and throw the existing politicians and bankers who signed off on this monstrosity in jail, and NOT the Greek version of the US's "Club Fed".

At this point, the Greek people may well be ripe for revolution against a governmental body in bed with corporations and banksters, the members of which have absolutely no regard for the immense suffering they have caused the Greek people, through the imposition of extreme austerity.

And also, at zerohedge.com, we see the following, and very disturbing, article related to Greece:

Explosives Mailed To German Finance Minister Were Sent By Militant Greek Group

Unfortunately, until things get very much better for the Greeks and Greek economy, we may continue to see acts like this happen.

As a Christian Pacifist Activist, I can never advocate physical violence; but I can see why it sometimes happens.

The Impacts of Vaccines: Aluminum, Autoimmunity, Autism and Alzheimer’s

There are a number of whistle-blower experts (see below) who are trying to alert doctors, journalists and law-makers to the dangers of Big Pharma’s highly profitable over-vaccination business plan. These out-numbered and silenced whistle-blowers are stepping on some very big toes, namely huge multinational pharmaceutical corporations that have large numbers of clever lawyers, cunning front groups, well-paid lobbyists and control of what gets reported on the mainstream news. That combination can easily destroy the careers of honest altruistic researchers that threaten their financial bottom line – and they have – most dramatically and cruelly in the case of Dr Andrew Wakefield (watch one of his powerful talks on YouTube).

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If you have not seen the film "Vaxxed", I encourage you to buy/rent it, and see it through to the end.

How the CDC "cherry picked" the data on vaccines, and covering up the data about potential danger to children, in the name of pharmaceutical profits, will leave you gobsmacked.

I am sharing our copy this Sunday with a friend at church, who has a precious toddler son I want to see grow up healthily, and make his mark in the world; I know that my friend is going to be very angry at what has been presented to him by his medical practitioner, in terms of the alleged "safety" of the vaccines his son has been given to date.

The Kagans Are Back; Wars to Follow

The Kagan family, America’s neoconservative aristocracy, has reemerged having recovered from the letdown over not gaining its expected influence from the election of Hillary Clinton and from its loss of official power at the start of the Trump presidency.

Back pontificating on prominent op-ed pages, the Family Kagan now is pushing for an expanded U.S. military invasion of Syria and baiting Republicans for not joining more enthusiastically in the anti-Russian witch hunt over Moscow’s alleged help in electing Donald Trump.

In a Washington Post op-ed on March 7, Robert Kagan, a co-founder of the Project for the New American Century and a key architect of the Iraq War, jabbed at Republicans for serving as “Russia’s accomplices after the fact” by not investigating more aggressively.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These are just the sort of people who should never, ever wield influence on this government, because they hawk war as the only possible solution to the US government's geopolitical problems, as if there is no such thing as moral, hard-won negotiations as a way to resolve these issues.

Judicial Watch Sues DOJ for Records Relating To Tarmac Meeting between then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former President Bill Clinton in June 2016

Judicial Watch announced today that it filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the Department of Justice for records related to the meeting held between then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former President Bill Clinton at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport in 2016 (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of Justice (No. 1:17-cv-00421)).

Judicial Watch filed the lawsuit after the agency failed to respond to a June 29, 2016, FOIA request seeking:

All records and/or transcripts of a meeting held between Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former President Bill Clinton in June 2016.
All records of communication sent to or from officials in the Office of the Attorney General regarding the meeting held between Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former President Bill Clinton in June 2016.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unfortunately, Judicial Watch will get those records only shortly after pigs develop the ability to fly.

TILLERSON THREATENS TO WITHDRAW US FROM UN HUMAN RIGHTS COUNCIL

The Trump Administration is reviewing membership in the UN Human Rights Council, and “considerable reform” within the organization would be necessary for the US to remain, according to Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.

In a letter addressed to organizations lobbying for continued US membership, obtained first by Foreign Policy magazine, Tillerson said the State Department would “continue to evaluate the effectiveness” of the body and its fixation on the State of Israel.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I had, originally, hoped that the Trump administration would be a little more even-handed when it came to the Israeli government's consistent persecutions of Palestinians, including extrajudicial assassinations; the torture and jailing of children through which to enforce "confessions" to things which didn't actually happen; and unlimited time in jail before a Palestinian could be tried, and convicted.

I have to realize, understanding the full import of Tillerson's letter, that I was really, very badly mistaken that such an approach would be at all possible, under President Trump's watch.

Meet the Clinton propaganda network to discredit Donald Trump

This article is a warning – in November 2016, a vast system of agitation and propaganda was set up in order to destroy the reputation and the authority of President Donald Trump as soon as he arrived in the White House. It is the first time that such a campaign has been scientifically organized against a President of the United States, and with such resources. Yes, we are indeed entering a post-Truth age, but the distribution of rôles is not what you may think it is.

2 YEARS AFTER THIS AMERICAN JOURNALIST WAS KILLED, HER ‘CONSPIRACY THEORIES’ ON SYRIA ARE PROVEN AS FACTS

Serena Shim was killed two years ago on October 19, 2014, in Turkey while reporting on the intense battle for the Syrian border city of Kobani which was the focus of international media attention. She was 29 when she died.

The city of Kobani, which has one of Turkey’s major border crossings with Syria, because it was under threat of being completely captured by the Islamic State. The US was forced to respond because Islamic State grew out of control and threatened the border stability of Turkey, and it became the first major area bombed during the US campaign in Syria.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Truth is always "inconvenient" when war and regime change are at stake, to services the geopolitical aims the American Deep State.

For Holocaust victims, a path to reclaim stolen assets and stories of their loved ones

Gordon, 65, discovered those details more than a decade after Fox’s death in 1992, after Gordon applied for reparations for his mother as a victim of the Holocaust under a program sponsored by the German government. She qualified for reparation payments of $950 three times a year until her death in 2015.

“That was a slam dunk,” Gordon said of the process of applying for German reparations, which led him to apply for a program run by the French government.

ADL TO BUILD SILICON VALLEY CENTER TO MONITOR & FIGHT “CYBERHATE”

The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) has announced that it will build a “a state-of-the-art command center in Silicon Valley” to monitor and fight anything online that it determines is “hate.”

The ADL is known for attacking individuals who criticize Israel as allegedly “anti-Semitic.” Its website states: “ADL has always been a strong voice for Israel.”

Critics of the organization have noted that its fundraising strategy relies on finding “anti-Semitism” and charge that it often exaggerates this threat.

A former Israeli minister stated that Israel and its partisans often use the charge of anti-Semitism against those who speak discuss Israel’s oppression of Palestinians: “It’s a trick, we always use it.” The ADL was the initiator of hate crimes legislation in the United States, launching this campaign in 1981.

ADL CEO Jonathan Greenblatt announced the new center on March 12 at a music festival in Austin, Texas. Accompanying him was Texas Tribune Editor-in-Chief Evan Smith.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The ADL has always gone after any whisper of any logical criticism of the actions of the Israeli government; this center will simply give it the state of the art equipment with which to publicly crucify any individual - or organisation - which reasonably, and logically, criticises specific policies adopted by the Israeli government, like the deliberate targeting of Palestinian children in the 2014 Israeli attack, Operation Protective Edge.

As reported at the International Middle East Center in April of 2015:

A new report by Defense for Children International-Palestine, titled ‘Operation Protective Edge: A War Waged On Gaza’s Children’, has displayed documented events proving that that Israel deliberately murdered Palestinian children during its last offensive on the Gaza Strip, this past summer.According to the report, the number of children killed in the last summer offensive on Gaza hit 535, a majority of them under the age 12. Another 3,400 children were injured – over 1,000 maimed for life. They need vital medical care unavailable because of Israel’s lawless siege – ongoing aggression by any standard with full US-led Western support.

I am reasonably certain that after this report was released, the ADL went after this report with whatever geopolitical, electronic, and judicial tools they had to hand, even though the information presented was incontrovertible.

That's... precisely what the ADL does, and will continue to do, with the establishment of this center.

This report had nothing to do with "hate"; it had everything to do with logic, numbers, and statistics, and a continued Israeli serial genocide against Palestinian children.

And please remember: there are Israeli rabbis and public figures and institutions who advocate for the complete extermination of the Palestinian people:

Israel's former Chief Rabbi urges the genocide of Palestinians

"Genocide is permissible" muses Times of Israel, promptly retracts

And finally, in images you cannot unsee:

PREET BHARARA EXPLAINS WHY HE LET WALL STREET BANK EXECUTIVES AVOID PRISON

Recently dismissed U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, Preet Bharara, is suddenly being celebrated as an aggressive warrior in the fight against Wall Street corruption. Really? You could’ve fooled me. Perhaps I was in a coma when a string of big bank executives were arrested and sent to prison.

No, what actually happened is one of the most powerful attorneys in the nation came up with a mealy-mouthed, cowardly rationale for why he let these financial thieves off the hook.

Crain’s reports:

Bharara was nowhere to be found when it came to charging the top executives whose actions led to the collapse of Lehman Brothers, Merrill Lynch and AIG, and who made all manner of misleading statements to cover up how sick their firms were. Goldman Sachs executives sold institutional investors a mortgage-backed security that sales staffers described as “one shitty deal.” Where was Bharara when it mattered most?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Absoflippinglutely unbelievable.

I have to wonder if - and what - Bahara received as "incentives" for not prosecuting in these cases.

EXPLOSION AFTER ENVELOPE OPENED AT IMF OFFICES IN PARIS, 1 INJURED – POLICE SOURCES

An envelope exploded after being opened at the offices of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) in Paris on Thursday, according to media citing police sources. One person is reported injured.

The IMF building has not been damaged, French broadcaster BFM TV reported, adding that police are on site.

A police operation is underway, law enforcers said in a statement, adding that one person was left injured by a suspicious package with explosives inside.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The question is, here, cui bono?!?

Who benefits?!?

Was this done, perhaps, to build "sympathy" for a tone-deaf and blind organisation, which does not care, or understand, what hardship it places on the people of member countries?!?

At the moment, a true motive cannot be established, and no group has claimed responsibility.

Trump Nominates Another Goldman Banker For Key Treasury Position

Not good!

In the latest creeping takeover by Goldman Sachs of the White House, overnight the White House announced that Donald Trump will nominate another Goldman Sachs banker, James Donovan, for a key financial post as deputy Treasury secretary, the White House said on Tuesday, adding another alumnus of the Wall Street investment bank to his administration. Donovan joins his former peers, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and chief Economic advisor, Gary Cohn, who are also former Goldman executives who occupy senior economic posts within the administration.

Violent Attack on Free Speech at Middlebury College

When Dr. Murray rose to speak, he was shouted down by most of the more than 400 students who packed into the room. They chanted, “Racist, sexist, anti-gay, Charles Murray, go away.” After almost 20 minutes, it was clear that he would not be able to deliver his lecture. Murray was then moved to a separate room equipped with a video camera so that Allison Stanger, a Middlebury professor of international politics and economics, could interview him and the interview would be live streamed. Bill Burger, a spokesman for the college, said that Murray’s right to free speech should be protected and that “no one should have the heckler’s veto.”

Always Dishonest; Obama Used British Agents For Trump Wire Tap (Video)

By now, almost everybody knows how the various intelligence agencies collaborate with each other to get around that pesky ‘no domestic spying’ issue (besides ignoring it completely, of course). Can’t spy on US citizens? Get your friends in the British Isles to do it for you, and vice-versa. And now, evidence has emerged that this is exactly what President Obama did to then-presidential candidate Donald Trump.

In the following video, Right Wing News looks at the ongoing Obamagate scandal and Obama’s persistent and furious denials in the face of mounting evidence. Sure, maybe he didn’t order the US intelligence agencies to do it, conveniently leaving out the fact that he may have instead used our so-called allies to do the dirty work for him. No doubt he repaid the favor by having the CIA do a little spying on their behalf.

J’Accuse! John McCain Slams Rand Paul for ‘Working For Vladimir Putin’ (WATCH)

The international treaty, which would annex Montenegro into NATO’s sphere and incorporate the state into the United Nations, was met with objection in December from Paul as well as Mike Lee of Utah. International treaties require a two-thirds majority to pass.

McCain asked the president of the Senate for permission to call up a resolution for the US to ratify the agreement. "I object," Paul said, before promptly leaving the floor of the Senate.

"That is really remarkable, that a senator blocking a treaty that is supported by the overwhelming number, perhaps 98 – at least – of his colleagues would come to the floor and object and walk away," McCain said.

"The only conclusion you can draw when he walks away is he has no justification for his objection to having a small nation be part of NATO that is under assault from the Russians. So I repeat again, the senator from Kentucky is now working for Vladimir Putin."

Collapsing Pensions Are “About to Bring Hell to America”

long with the student loan debt bubble and other major financial factors, the looming pensions crisis is bound to be the death of us all.

Because it’s based on a future promise to pay, it has long been a benefit dangled to solve strikes and union disputes – because, in the end, it is just more debt, whether private or public.

With tens of trillions in unfunded liabilities, the weight of an avalanche remains dangling over our heads. An aging population is cashing in on needed retirement benefits while the younger generations must support multiples that are unsustainable financially.

Somewhere between the retiree that needs clothing, food and lodging, and the bankruptcy of cities and state governments is the makings of the next economic crisis.

Small drone 'shot with Patriot missile'

A Patriot missile - usually priced at about $3m (£2.5m) - was used to shoot down a small quadcopter drone, according to a US general.

"That quadcopter that cost 200 bucks from Amazon.com did not stand a chance against a Patriot," he said.

Patriots are radar-targeted weapons more commonly used to shoot down enemy aircraft and ballistic missiles.

"Now, that worked, they got it, OK, and we love Patriot missiles," the general said.

Greetings World, We are Anonymous.

The “full wrath” of the United States Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) will soon descend upon all of America after the deadliest secret lies of this “Deep State” spy agency currently at war with President Donald Trump, have now been exposed for the entire world to see, and whose next “false flag” terror attack to cover up their crimes may come as soon this coming week.

The international whistle blowing organization Wikileaks released the largest ever in history publication of over 8,000 CIA top secret documents (Vault 7: CIA Hacking Tools Revealed) revealing that this “Deep State” spy agency has, in fact, created and cast a vast electronic surveillance net around the entire US unrivaled in modern times and that has turned even the most innocuous devices (televisions, phones, computers, smart devices, automobiles, etc.) into illegal spying tools.

Just weeks after Oroville Dam crisis, damage found in another key California reservoir

California water officials, still struggling with fixes at Oroville Dam, will have to temporarily shut down the pumping station that delivers water to much of Southern California and Silicon Valley after discovering damage at another key state reservoir.

The state Department of Water Resources confirmed Tuesday that operators discovered damage to the intake structure at the Clifton Court Forebay, a nearly two-mile-wide reservoir that stores water for the State Water Project pumping plant in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta near Tracy. Repairs will begin Wednesday. It’s not clear how long they will last.

Trump Faces PAC Ultimatum To End DACA Amnesty For Illegals

(Raleigh, NC) Americans for Legal Immigration PAC is issuing an ultimatum to President Donald Trump to honor his campaign promise to end his and Obama's DACA Amnesty orders or the national organization will rescind its standing endorsement for Trump originally issued on February 29, 2016.

If Trump does not end his DACA Amnesty for illegals without replacement by Tax Day (April 17), 2017, the loss of ALIPAC's support and endorsement will signal the immigration enforcement movement, Tea Party movement, and American public that Trump can't be trusted on the powerful campaign issue that made his victory over Bush and Clinton possible.

ALIPAC is also launching a national outreach campaign to locate, organize, and mobilize American activists who are willing to stand up and hold Trump accountable for his campaign promises on immigration law enforcement while fighting legislative amnesty in Congress at the same time.

China Will Replace All 67,000 Fossil-Fueled Taxis In Beijing With Electric Cars

Taxis are the bane of all urban areas. Typically, they are poorly made, poorly maintained, and spew tons of carbon dioxide into the air every day as they shuttle people from place to place. Beijing has nearly 70,000 taxis. It also has an intractable problem with smog. While it has embarked on an aggressive program to encourage private citizens to buy what it calls “new energy vehicles” — hybrids, plug-in hybrids, and battery-operated cars — that push has not made much of an impact on the taxi fleet in China’s capital. Now it has announced a plan to replace all 67,000 fossil-fueled taxis in the city with electric cars.

President Trump's new administration isn't fighting any harder to have more of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's emails released.

In fact, based off of court proceedings this week, the Trump Justice Department is following the same playbook as President Obama's, with government lawyers saying they will continue to seek a dismissal of a Judicial Watch case that is trying to force them to locate more of Clinton's emails.

'It's incredible,' said Judicial Watch's head Tom Fitton to the Washington Post. 'They're taking the same position as the Obama administration on Clinton.'

Who got rich off the student debt crisis

A generation ago, Congress privatized a student loan program intended to give more Americans access to higher education.

In its place, lawmakers created another profit center for Wall Street and a system of college finance that has fed the nation’s cycle of inequality. Step by step, Congress has enacted one law after another to make student debt the worst kind of debt for Americans – and the best kind for banks and debt collectors.

Today, just about everyone involved in the student loan industry makes money off students – the banks, private investors, even the federal government.

Judge Napolitano Says British Intelligence Provided Obama Admin With Surveillance Data on Trump Tower Phone Conversations

In a startling segment on the Fox News program The First 100 Days, Judge Andrew Napolitano told viewers that there will be no paper trail linking President Obama to any surveillance of telephone calls in Trump Tower during the presidential transition period. (President Obama called it “wiretapping” even though no wires were involved.) The reason is that British intelligence had access to NSA surveillance data – which captures every phone call in the United States – and were able to provide such intelligence to President Obama without a FISA court warrant or any other paper trail that would expose an American intelligence agency that used the same NSA data.

China Initiative Wants To Help Trump's 2026 U.S.A. Vision; British Intelligence Wants To Impeach or Kill Him

Interesting considering the recent revelation that Obama had the Brits spying on Trump.

If the growing number of reports that Donald Trump and Xi Jinping will meet in Florida next month are true, the way is open for President Trump to collaborate with China's global growth and progress driver -- the so-called New Silk Road or Belt and Road Initiative -- as Barack Obama refused to do. The horizon goals Trump set out for America's "250th Anniversary" in 2026 -- peace with nations including our current "adversaries," a renewed modern economic infrastructure, "our footsteps on distant worlds" -- would then have far better prospect of being reached. Those goals are not on the leadership's agenda of either of the United States' warring political parties.

Globalists and leftists argue for the adoption and toleration of all ideologies and principles as a means to peace, but what they really want in the end is the erasure of all the ideologies and principles they see as disagreeable in order to make way for their own.

Kim Jong-un threatens ‘MERCILESS’ attack on America in retaliation for South Korea drills

He said he would attack his Western enemies from “ground, air, sea and underwater” in a sabre-rattling statement released through state media.

The propaganda press agency KCNA indicated the blood-thirsty despot was becoming increasingly agitated by the joint military drills south of the border.

A statement attributed to Kim said: “If they infringe on the DPRK's sovereignty and dignity even a bit, its army will launch merciless ultra-precision strikes from ground, air, sea and underwater.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Here is where these threats break down; in the use of the words "ultra-precision strikes."

Unless the DPRK has been able to buy, or develop, some advanced guidance systems from rogue countries which are comfortable about ducking UN sanctions against such things, their guidance has generally been their proverbial Achilles' heel.

And threats like these are truly, geopolitically counter-productive, unless a country can actually back them up, but it is imminently possible that North Korea's guidance and nuclear capabilities have evolved to the point where they can do what they threaten. As reported today in http://www.theaustralian.com.au:

Imagine that instead of friendly, congenial New Zealand across the Tasman we had Kim’s North Korea firing nuclear capable missiles into the sea less than 200km from Sydney or Brisbane, and you get a sense of why Japan and South Korea consider North Korea an existential threat. Seoul has long been in range of North Korean’s short-range missiles and about 8000 artillery ­pieces that could devastate the South Korean capital within hours — not to mention the hundreds of thousands of North Korean troops likely to pour out of massive hidden tunnel systems along the demilitarised zone if hostilities, never formally ended following the 1953 Korean War, were to resume. But the recently acquired ability to arm these missiles with nuclear warheads means that Kim can destroy South Korea as a functioning society, since the south has no effective means of defending against them. Lacking a workable defensive missile shield of its own, it’s hardly surprising Seoul has turned to Washington for assistance by agreeing to host a THAAD battery on its soil, despite domestic resistance and the likely election of the dovish Moon Jae-in to replace the disgraced Park Geun-hye, whose impeachment was last week upheld by the constitutional court. Moon has already conceded it will be difficult to reverse the decision of the interim government to speed up the THAAD deployment. THAAD has been fiercely resisted by Beijing because the powerful X-band radar, which forms the heart of the system, can see thousands of kilometres into China from the outskirts of Seoul, allowing the US to potentially shoot down Chinese missiles, putting at risk China’s missile-centric military strategy in which it has invested billions of dollars. However, China’s threats of retribution are unlikely to delay or derail the planned THAAD deployment to South Korea, which is scheduled to be fully operational by the end of April. Japan and the US have an even bigger problem as the likeliest targets for Kim’s nukes. By launching four missiles simultaneously, Kim has demonstrated a previously unseen capacity to overwhelm Japan’s limited ballistic missile defence system with saturation attacks, threatening Tokyo and other major Japanese cities as well as the 54,000 US military personnel based in Japan and their 40,000 dependents.

I am absolutely not advocating for war with North Korea; that being said, at this moment, the US, China, and South Korea might have an opportunity to get North Korea back to the bargaining table, and replace the existing Armistice with a true peace deal, with the proviso that upon signing this treaty, North Korea would abandon its nuclear weapons program entirely.

In the Chinese language, the ideogram for "crisis" and "opportunity" is one and the same; I would like to hope that the US government understands that, but will not hold out a lot of hope right now.

Unfortunately, as things stand, with the THAAD units in South Korea being completed and operational at the end of April, I see a potential start to a military conflict happening at the beginning of May, unless some intelligent, moral, and hard-won negotiations are put into place to prevent this from happening.

US deploying attack drones to South Korea

The United States has begun deploying attack drones to South Korea as tensions with North Korea remain high over Pyongyang’s persistence in its missile and nuclear program.

U.S. Forces Korea said Monday that the company of Gray Eagle Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) will be permanently stationed at Kunsan Air Base, about 150 miles south of Seoul.

“The stationing of this company, which will be assigned to the 2nd Combat Aviation Brigade of the 2nd Infantry Division, directly supports the U.S. Army’s strategic plan to add one Gray Eagle company to each division in the Army,” U.S. Forces Korea said in a press release.

“The UAS adds significant intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance capability to U.S. Forces Korea and our [Republic of Korea] partners.”

The timeline for the full deployment of the drone company is unclear.
The deployment comes as tensions on the peninsula remain fraught after North Korea’s latest missile test.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would suggest that this deployment will come sooner rather than later; it appears that all the pieces are being put into place for a war against North Korea.

North Korea and China do have a mutual defense pact:

Sino-North Korean Mutual Aid and Cooperation Friendship Treaty

So the question I hope keeps our senior lawmakers and military managers up at night is, how will China respond to a US/Japanese/South Korean attack on North Korea?!?

Living here on Oahu, such a question is very disturbing to contemplate.

More than 1,500 children dead in two years of Yemen war: UN

The conflict in Yemen has killed nearly 7,700 people, including at least 1,564 children, since a Saudi-led coalition intervened on the government's side two years ago, UN agencies said Monday.

The UN children's agency UNICEF said that by March 10, at least 1,546 children were killed and 2,450 others maimed in Yemen.

Of those killed, 1,022 were boys and 478 were girls while 46 were of "unknown sex", UNICEF said in a statement.

During that same period 1,801 boys and 649 girls were wounded while 1,572 boys were recruited to serve as child soldiers, said UNICEF.

In March 2015, a Saudi-led Arab coalition mounted an air campaign in support of President Abedrabbo Mansour Hadi whose authority was being challenged by Shiite Huthi rebels.

The rebels overran the capital Sanaa in September 2014 forcing Hadi to seek first refuge in the southern city of Aden and then exile in Saudi Arabia.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

For the last 2 years, the Saudi military have been committing war crimes in Yemen, which the US government has enabled by selling them the bombs, and providing guidance for their targeting; this makes the United States Government complicit in Saudi war crimes.

Additionally, the Saudi military has blockaded Yemen ports which makes it impossible to get desperately needed food aid into the country; consequently, Yemeni children are starving to death.

images: Yemeni children wounded and killed by Saudi bombing strikes

images: Yemeni children starving to death due to Saudi blockade of Yemeni ports

Of course, the US presstitute media will never show you these images, because it breaks the narrative that somehow, these Saudi war crimes, and the Saudi creation of genocide in Yemen, are done for a "good and noble cause", to get the Houthis out of the country.

But the real reasons for the Saudi invasion, and hoped for occupation, are far different, and include the following:

Riyadh's Dirty Secret: Saudi Arabia Thirsty for Yemeni Oil, Gas Reserves

And from the US government's perspective:

Yemen : US Naval Base on Occupied Socotra Island

As stated in the following article from globalresearch.ca:

The Yemeni archipelago of Socotra in the Indian Ocean is located some 80 kilometres off the Horn of Africa and 380 kilometres South of the Yemeni coastline. The islands of Socotra are a wildlife reserve recognized by (UNESCO), as a World Natural Heritage Site. Socotra is at the crossroads of the strategic naval waterways of the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aden (See map below). It is of crucial importance to the US military. Among Washington’s strategic objectives is the militarization of major sea ways. This strategic waterway links the Mediterranean to South Asia and the Far East, through the Suez Canal, the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aden. It is a major transit route for oil tankers. A large share of China’s industrial exports to Western Europe transits through this strategic waterway. Maritime trade from East and Southern Africa to Western Europe also transits within proximity of Socotra (Suqutra), through the Gulf of Aden and the Red Sea. (see map below). A military base in Socotra could be used to oversee the movement of vessels including war ships in an out of the Gulf of Aden. “The [Indian] Ocean is a major sea lane connecting the Middle East, East Asia and Africa with Europe and the Americas. It has four crucial access waterways facilitating international maritime trade, that is the Suez Canal in Egypt, Bab-el-Mandeb (bordering Djibouti and Yemen), Straits of Hormuz (bordering Iran and Oman), and Straits of Malacca (bordering Indonesia and Malaysia). These ‘chokepoints’ are critical to world oil trade as huge amounts of oil pass through them.”

Additionally, Socotra is as close as any military base could be to Diego Garcia, being about 1200 miles away.

This is why the US government doesn't want any talk about a political settlement between divided factions in Yemen; a united Yemen would want its island back, and the US government will simply not allow that to happen, so countless more Yemenis will have to die here.
