CIA Coup? Ex-Spook: Langley ‘Taking Traitor Trump Out Now’

Former spook John Schindler pronounced on Twitter Thursday night that the CIA is trying to take out President-elect Donald Trump before he is sworn in as president next Friday, January 20. Schindler has long accused Trump of being a Russian stooge.

‘Fake news’? Time to choose: Corporate media fakes us into 2 central lies for more illegal war on Iran: ‘threat to Israel’ and ‘nuclear program’ EVEN AFTER 12 YEARS of anyone checking the facts soooo easily refuting these claims as known lies (8 of 15)

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

“First they ignore you. Then they laugh at you. Then they fight you. And then you win.” ~ unsourced, and attributed to Gandhi’s analysis of British empire response to having their hypocrisy exposed: claiming to bring Christian love and progress while looting resources with forced local labor.

“When we now know that all claims for war with Iraq were known lies as they were told (and verbally explained here), and CNN provides similar innuendo for war by an unsourced alleged report with concerns of what might occur in the future allegedly stated by an unnamed US source reporting on an unnamed foreign source, this is propaganda and not news.” ~ My 2010 analysis of “fake news” reporting from CBS, ABC, CNN to lie Americans into illegal war on Iran.

Obama gives US intelligence greater access to warrantless data on foreigners

Barack Obama, in one of his final acts on national security, has permitted US intelligence and law enforcement agencies far greater access to raw communications data warrantlessly collected on foreign targets, a move that has alarmed privacy advocates.

Under an executive order, the CIA, FBI and other security agencies will be able to access unfiltered surveillance aimed at foreigners abroad, before information identifying or revealing Americans they may be in contact with gets censored out.

After Tanks the Boots: Thousands of US Troops Touch Ground in Europe on Way to Russian Frontier

A US armored brigade (3rd Armored Brigade, 4th Infantry Division) is on the move to Russia's Baltic border. After its equipment begun arriving in Europe last week so now have its soldiers.

The move is so big it will require 37 trains and over one thousand rail cars to transport from Germany to Poland.

A US armored brigade fields over 400 tracked and over 1300 wheeled vehicles including 80 62-ton Abrams tanks, 140 Bradley armored fighting vehicles and 400 humvees.

Is This The Coup In America? “U.S. Troops On Russian Border” To Start War Before Inauguration ? By Mac Slavo

Is there a coup underway, while America is in the transition period, and before Trump swears in as the 45th president of the United States?

How real is the clash between the rogue Manhattan billionaire and the intelligence gang behind the throne? Who will win the struggle for power over foreign policy? These are serious times and require serious considerations.

The U.S. sent an entire armored brigade to the Russian border, and Vladimir Putin is preparing as if for war. Missile defense systems are raised; tall claims and serious charges have been leveled; diplomatic relations have chilled to a permafrost. Several Russian diplomats have turned up dead recently, including one murdered in front of cameras during a dramatic assassination in Turkey. Russia has bucked U.S. order in the Middle East, and carved out a potential peace deal in Syria without their consultation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This scenario is not as outlandish as you might want to believe; the pieces are in place as I type this commentary, and all it will take is either one catastrophic wrong move (or a deliberate false flag) to get things rolling before Trump even has the opportunity to take the Oath of Office.

I am watching the feed from Faux News, and McCaul is stating that "there must be consequences for what Russia is doing", when there is absolutely zero proof that Russia has done anything to either swing last year's election in Trump's direction, or blackmail Trump to do its bidding.

And what really has gotten the hair at the back of my neck up, and has gotten it break dancing (a very odd feat for the hair of someone who is right handed/left eye dominant)is the following article:

Russia puts Moscow S-400s on combat alert: Video

The two words which alarm me in that headline are: "COMBAT ALERT".

Whatever the Russian government is expecting, it must be pretty horrific for this equipment to be deployed, just outside of Moscow.

Obama Used His New Executive Order for the First Time, Officially Classified US Election System as “Critical Infrastructure”

Remember when DHS head Jeh Johnson announced Homeland Security might have to take over and "protect" our elections as critical infrastructure (a scary prospect at the time considering how partisan/progressive/pro-Hillary Obama's entire administration is)?

Well now they have one more layer of bureaucracy under which to do so in the future.

DHS CREATES THE 'NATIONAL LIVESTOCK READINESS PROGRAM' TO CONTROL OUR FOOD SUPPLY

DHS wants to control our food supply, this sounds like a 'fake news' story but unfortunately it's all too real.

Last year, DHS gave the National Agricultural Biosecurity Center (NABC) $331,118 to develop the 'National Livestock Readiness Program'.

Don't we already have two government agencies that control disease outbreaks in animals?

The government created the FDA and the USDA to control disease, foodborne pathogens etc., why do we need a national livestock program run by DHS? (click here to read about mad cow disease.)

The very name Department of Homeland Security should give people pause. Many of us have watched DHS turn America into a police state ruled by fear. DHS has created fear of each other (See Something Say Something) fear of drugs, fear of drunk & drugged driving, fear of terror and now fear of hate crimes.

The endless wars and fear of everything is the only reason DHS exists.

DHS and the Feds to control our food supply

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am going to look to buy local, as much as I can, without my produce being sprayed with glyphosate and other carcinogens.

That the DHS is looking to control the American food supply scares the stuffing out of me, and I will do everything to purchase healthy, local food over which it has zero control.

UK child-abuse whistleblower sentenced to two years by kangaroo court held in secret

On Wednesday 11 January 2016, Melanie Shaw, the whistleblower on the horrific abuse of children which occurred at the then county council-run Beechwood Children's Home in Nottinghamshire in the late 1980s, was given a two-year custodial sentence in a secret court hearing.

The nature of the charge against her is unclear and that information is refused when requested of court staff. The case took place late yesterday morning but it did not appear on any court lists until the hearing was past.

Gen. Mattis: "Russia Is The Principal Threat To US Security"

“Our Armed Forces must remain the best led, best equipped, and most ready force in the world,” Mattis told the Senate. “We must also embrace our international alliances and security partnerships. History is clear: nations with strong allies thrive and those without them wither.”

“My watchwords will be solvency and security in providing for the protection of our people and the survival of our freedoms,” Mattis said. “America has two fundamental powers. One is intimidation,” Mattis told Senator Gary Peters (D-Michigan). “The other power, which we’ve used less in the last 20 years, is the power of inspiration.” The US should not be turning to military power as the answer to all of its concerns around the world, the retired Marine general added.

Here are some of the key highlights so far:

Russia Is "Principal Threat" To US Security

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would be curious as to understand in what context Mattis believes Russia is our "principal threat"?!?

Because in looking at Putin's behaviour, I just don't see it. What I see is a master chess player, who has generally been one hundred moves ahead of his American and European counterparts.

Dangers of Genetically Modified Corn: New 90-Day Rat Study Destroys Corporate GMO Propaganda

GM proponents who constantly drone on with untrue claims that the science has clearly demonstrated GMOs as safe were dealt yet another blow shortly before Thanksgiving this past year.

This is because yet another study has been published demonstrating the negative health effects of GMOs on the intestinal tract.

This study by Ibrahim and Okasha entitled “Effect of genetically modified corn on the jejunal mucosa of adult male albino rat.,” and published in the journal Experimental and Toxicologic Pathology has demonstrated that rats fed GM Bt corn MON810 for only 90 days did indeed suffer rather serious damage to the surface mucous membranes of the jejunum – which is part of the small intestine.

The specific type of corn fed to the rats was MON810: Ajeeb YG. This is a GM version of Ajeeb, which is a local species of corn grown in Egypt. The GM version was created by Monsanto for the Egyptian market.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When you watch the cute commercials about breakfast cereals, you have to ask, are the ingredients in this food GMO?!?

Because if so, you need to throw them out pronto, to avoid doing any more damage to your system.

Historical Legacy of Obama The War Criminal, Butcherer of Women and Children, US Dropped 26,171 Bombs in 2016

There is no doubt that US President Barak Obama is a war criminal as are his military and intelligence officials and most of the House and Senate.

Obama is the first president to keep the US at war for the entirety of his eight-year regime. During 2016 alone the US dropped 26,171 bombs on wedding parties, funerals, kid’s soccer games, hospitals, schools, people in their homes and walking their streets, and farmers tilling their fields in seven countries: Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, Libya, Yemen, Somalia and Pakistan.

http://blogs.cfr.org/zenko/2017/01/05/bombs-dropped-in-2016/

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As a Christian pacifist activist, I am hopeful that President-Elect Trump understands that there are more ways to pursue the geopolitical agenda of this country other than wars and pre-emptive invasions.

Only time will tell, however.

Obama’s Farewell Address. Nuclear Proliferation, Killing Bin Laden, Reversing the “Great Recession” …

During the speech he listed a series of accomplishments that represent, in his view, the high marks of his presidency: As he put it, he ‘reversed the Great Recession, rebooted the auto industry, generated the longest job creation period in Us economic history, got 20 million people health insurance coverage, halved US dependency on foreign oil, negotiated the Iran nuclear proliferation deal, killed Osama Bin Laden, prevented foreign terrorist attacks on the US homeland, ended torture, passed laws to protect citizens from surveillance, and worked to close GITMO.’ Sounds good, unless one considers the facts behind the ‘hurrah for me’ claims.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This farewell speech demonstrates, yet again, the huge, astonishing chasm between Obama's perception of reality, and reality itself.

What about the 95 million Americans not participating in the labor force? What does he have to say to console them?!?

95 million Americans not participating in the US labor force

And to his assertion that his Seal Team "took out Bin Laden in Abbotabad" under his watch; Bin Laden died in 2001.

Osama Bin Ladin died in 2001

And not a word about the wars he has caused to happen, or expand upon, in such countries such as Yemen; Libya; Somalia; Afghanistan; and Iraq.

The Deep State Goes to War with President-Elect, Using Unverified Claims, as Democrats Cheer

IN JANUARY, 1961, Dwight Eisenhower delivered his farewell address after serving two terms as U.S. president; the five-star general chose to warn Americans of this specific threat to democracy: “In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist.” That warning was issued prior to the decadelong escalation of the Vietnam War, three more decades of Cold War mania, and the post-9/11 era, all of which radically expanded that unelected faction’s power even further.

This is the faction that is now engaged in open warfare against the duly elected and already widely disliked president-elect, Donald Trump. They are using classic Cold War dirty tactics and the defining ingredients of what has until recently been denounced as “Fake News.”

Government quietly launched ‘assault on freedom’ while distracting people, say campaigners behind legal challenge

The Government passed an “assault on freedom” while people were afraid and distracted, according to campaigners.

Campaign group Liberty is requesting a High Court judicial review of the wide-ranging new spying tactics in the Investigatory Powers Act.

That law was passed at the end of last year and gives spies – and a range of other organisations including the Food Standards Agency – the power to see anyone’s entire internet history, alongside other unprecedented rules. The Liberty challenge will focus on bulk powers, which let intelligence agencies collect up huge amount of data in case it needs to be used in future, meaning that people not under investigation have their information watched.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is more than a little depressing to understand that this legislation has come from the country which gave the world the Magna Carta.

Enough Fearmongering: Only One Democratic State Is Possible in Palestine and Israel

This is not an argument against the two-state solution; for the latter merely existed as a ruse to pacify Palestinians, buy time and demarcate the conflict with a mirage-like political horizon. If the US was indeed keen on a two-state solution, it would have fought vehemently to make it a reality, decades ago.

To say that the two-state solution is now dead is to subscribe to the illusion that it was once alive and possible.

That said, it behooves everyone to understand that coexistence in a one democratic state is not a dark scenario that spells doom for the region.

It is time to abandon unattainable illusions and focus all energies to foster coexistence, based on equality and justice for all.

Indeed, there can be one state between the river and the sea, and that is a democratic state for all of its people, regardless of their ethnicity or religious beliefs.

Washington Invented Hacking and Interfering in Elections

One can reasonably argue that Washington started the practice of cyber-warfare and has been a long-time practitioner of both regime change and election tampering in its relationship with much of the world. The Snowden papers indicate that NSA hacking of targets in China has been going on for many years as has routine interception of cell phones of allied European and other world leaders, including German Chancellor Angela Merkel and the UN Secretary General. NSA has deliberately sought to have the capability to penetrate nearly every electronic communications network in the world, frequently in real time, and has come close to achieving that ability under Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama.

REPORT: FBI SOUGHT FISA COURT WARRANT TO SURVEIL TRUMP CAMPAIGN OFFICIALS

A new report released today features both the FBI seeking to launch a surveillance operation against an active US presidential campaign, and the ultra-rare case of the FISA courts actually turning down an FBI request to conduct surveillance against somebody.

Though the four are not directly named in the report, it is related to claims in a dossier of Russia having substantial blackmail dirt on Trump, and that dossier centered heavily around accusations against a handful of Trump campaign personnel, including Carter Page, Paul Manafort, and Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, along with Trump’s personal lawyer Michael Cohen, meaning some of them may well be among the targets.lly turning down an FBI request to conduct surveillance against somebody.

In just 10 days, the radical left will attempt to overthrow the U.S. government… Here’s why they will fail

According to multiple sources that have reached out to me — including an individual who has infiltrated left-wing “revolutionary” groups in California — the radical left has convinced itself it has a significant chance of pulling off some variation of an uprising / occupy / revolution / coup operation on Inauguration Day (January 20).

It’s supposed to start as “protests,” then morph into “riots,” then crescendo in a kind of “mad rush” to occupy federal buildings and then somehow declare some left-wing commie nut job to be the “legitimate” President of the United States. Another source told me during a recent interview that some elements of the radical left are even planning on setting off bombs to maximize chaos, occupy emergency responders and even send some federal officers home in body bags. (Weather Underground style, get it?)

The Final Takedown of Trump Begins in Earnest

What follows is just one example of how much Donald J. Trump is upsetting the NWO apple cart. Robert Kennedy Jr. agrees to ‘chair a commission on vaccination safety and scientific integrity’ for Trump It ought to be obvious by this critical appointment that Trump is willing to take on a central pillar of the NWO social engineering agenda. In fact the super-vaccination agenda is as BIG as it gets in terms of controlling the entire human population. RFK Jr. is well known among health advocates to be a zealous truth seeker regarding the inherent dangers of vaccines, and especially of the overly aggressive vaccination regimens that young children are now exposed to. The bottom line concerning this extraordinary appointment by Trump is that he is showing a courageous willingness to go after one of their sacred cows. You don’t ever go after their sacred cows and expect to succeed given the current institutional arrangements which make up the Global Control Matrix.

CNN Challenges Trump Over Buzz Feed Fake News Coverage

As previously reported, Donald Trump blasted a CNN anchor as Fake News during his first press conference since the election for their coverage of the Buzz Feed Russia memos, which CNN has had for months without being able to corroborate, outrageously claimed Russia has been cultivating Trump for years and they were blackmailing him with a "Golden Showers" sex tape.

CNN has since responded to Trump, challenging Trump to point out inaccuracies claiming their reporting was matched by other news organizations and noted that claiming they only published “carefully sourced reporting about the operations of our government” which in fact, as shown below in CNN's own reporting is entirely false.

Get Rid of Social Network Surveillance

The bottom line is that if you can live without Facebook or other social media networking sites, by all means don’t use them. If you do decide to use them, keep the information you post to a minimum. For instance, the only photo I have posted on Facebook is more than a decade old. I log on once weekly to answer messages from my family. I don’t accept “friends” whom I don’t already know personally. If you use Facebook or other social media sites, I suggest you take similar precautions.

Scott Adams: The Master Persuader Scrambles the Frame

What was Trump’s biggest persuasion problem in the election?

Answer: His opponents did a great job of framing him as some kind of Hitler. Do a Google search on Trump and Hitler and you get an avalanche of comparisons.

It was sticky persuasion, and it still hangs over the country like a chorus of stale farts. I’ve said before that half the country believe they are living in 1930s Germany and the other half think we got a better economy and some free entertainment. Those are two completely different movies running on the same screen at the same time. So how does the Master Persuader deal with the second-largest case of national cognitive dissonance in our history? (Slavery was first.)

FBI Paid Multiple Best Buy Employees After Finding Illegal Content On Computers

As we told you last spring, lawyers for a California doctor accused of possessing child pornography claimed that the FBI had paid a Best Buy employee as an informant. Recently released court documents confirm that multiple Best Buy/Geek Squad staffers received money from the agency after telling the FBI about finding illegal content on customers’ devices.

• A California doctor is currently facing charges of child pornography after Best Buy Geek Squad staffers found what appears to be illegal content on his computer.

• Sworn statements from employees and FBI agents have revealed that the FBI paid multiple Best Buy staffers after they reported illegal content to the agency.

• Additionally, some Best Buy managers were named “confidential human sources” by the FBI.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I hate the notion of child pornography; but what I hate almost as much is the US government turning computer repair people into snitches about what is found on private computers.

This is just so...former East German Intelligence behaviour, I don't know where to start.

You Realize the Universal Basic Income Is Feudalism, Right?

What does the future hold for average people?

Feudalism.

And they’ll welcome it with open arms, convinced that they are embracing a smart, fair system that eliminates poverty. The greed, entitlement, and lack of ambition that seems inherent in many people today will have them slipping on the yoke of servitude willingly.

Here’s what I mean.

Have you ever been around people who say things like,

“I can’t afford it, but I deserve it…”

“Having [fill in the blank with a material object] is a basic right…”

“Losing that right is okay with me because it’s for the greater good.”

But the thing is, what we “deserve” is the right to pursue our dreams freely.

We deserve what we earn.
We deserve to be secure in our life, liberty, and property.
We deserve the freedom to go about our lives and decisions as long as we aren’t harming the life, liberty, and property of others.
No one owes us anything other than that.

NATO Report Blames Russia for Populism Worldwide

A new report from NATO is following a narrative trend which began in the US and has since spread across Western Europe, accusing Russia of being to blame for the rise of populism worldwide, as an effort to undermine NATO and the European Union.

This fits into the hysteria surrounding “fake news” in recent months, with the idea that Russia is to blame for the rise in alternative media outlets which are not as supportive of the idea of globalism. The “anti-globalism” idea positioned the defeat of Hillary Clinton in the US election as the fall of Western liberalism, putative a long-standing Russian priority.

Experts, of course, will note the rise of Euroskepticism across EU nations is largely concurrent with serious policy disputes within the EU itself, and that a simpler explanation than a far-reaching Russian plot is simply that many EU citizens don’t see the union as the panacea it was initially sold to them as.

US Imposes New Sanctions on Russia

Continuing what may ultimately be a very brief flurry of anti-Russia sanctions, the Obama Administration today announced a new round of sanctions against 5 Russian officials. Administration officials say that technically these are unrelated to allegations of Russian “hacking” of the election, though the timing makes it clear this is part of ongoing “retaliation.”

With President-elect Donald Trump taking office in a week and a half, these moves may not last long, with Trump aide Kellyanne Conway saying that Trump could well “reconsider” any sanctions imposed by the administration in the name of proportionality.

Trump has also suggested he’d be looking to roll back some of these moves, and that was a big reason why Russia did not launch any retaliatory diplomatic action after the Obama Administration expelled 35 of their diplomats and seized a pair of their compounds, with Russian officials saying they expect Trump to change course when he gets into office.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have several words with which to characterise these sanctions; churlish, childish, petulant, and completely fact-devoid, much as was the US accusing Russia of "annexing Crimea", while the US government blithely played the regime-change game in Kiev.

I have a very strong sense that after Trump is inaugurated, things will change for the better, in terms of US relations with Russia, and better US/Russian relations is not a bad thing at all.

ISIS, AL-QAEDA AND THE U.S. AIRFORCE WAGE WAR ON SYRIA'S PUBLIC UTILITIES

There are doubts that the U.S. was only watching from afar. The beginning and growth of ISIS was financed by U.S. Gulf "allies" which are subordinated to U.S. wishes. When the Obama administration had to start bombing ISIS after it killed a U.S. journalist the few bombs its airforce dropped were hitting an "ISIS fighting position" or an "ISIS excavator". That wasn't a serious campaign. Meanwhile thousands of Turkish tanker trucks were waiting in the deserts to load oil from ISIS controlled wells to sell it to Turkey. Only after the Russian President Putin showed satellite pictures of those huge truck columns to his colleagues at a G20 meeting did the U.S. start to attack this major source of ISIS finances.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As reported by zerohedge.com in January of last year:

ISIS: The 'Enemy' The US Created, Armed, & Funded

And as for the Takfiri forces; as reported at iranreview.org in 2014:

Throughout the crisis in Syria, the terrorist Takfiri groups enjoyed full political support of the United States as well as direct military, financial and logistical support from countries that are considered as US allies in the region. In addition, the Zionist regime of Israel provided Takfiri forces with direct training, consultation, and medical services, in such areas as the occupied Golan Heights, Quneitra, Utaiba, and other regions along its border with Syria and even inside Israel.

This is not just a US-sponsored fight to regime change Damascus; it is a fight against the Syrian people themselves, and their ability to control their own destiny.

The government of this country I care deeply about, my United States of America, has mutated into a war-crimes centric monster; and the hideous irony here is that it has accelerated rapidly on this path under the leadership of our Nobel Peace Prize-winning President, President Barak Obama.

And as long as I have breath, as a Christian pacifist activist, I have the moral obligation to bear peaceful, logical witness to the great evils my government continues to perpetrate, with utter impunity, and zero regard for the lives of the people against whom these war crimes have been committed.

Judge: San Francisco Can’t Be Sued Over Death By Immigrant

San Francisco cannot be held liable for a slaying by a man who was in the country illegally and had been released by sheriff’s officials despite a request by immigration officials to keep him behind bars, a federal judge said.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Joseph Spero dismissed wrongful death claims filed by the family of 32-year-old Kathryn Steinle against the city and Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi. The judge, however, allowed a negligence claim against the federal government to move forward.

Steinle’s shooting death thrust San Francisco into the national debate over immigration

As a native San Franciscan myself, I find this ruling morally reprehensible and appalling, and it definitely needs to be "kicked upstairs" to a judicial body with better horse-sense than that of a city which takes zero responsibility for a policy which got this woman murdered by an illegal alien; in fact, this case needs to go all the way to the Supreme Court.

We, as a country, need to take a good look at the many problems created by the "sanctuary city" policy, and chawk up the kinds of incidents like this it has created; unfortunately, by adopting such policies, cities make themselves a target-rich environment for the bad guys out there.

And with California's draconian gun laws, the woman was utterly helpless against her killer.

WATCH: PROTESTERS IN MEXICO KICK FEDS OUT OF TOWN, STORM BUILDINGS AS GOVT RAISES GAS PRICES

Hundreds have been arrested, and at least 3 people have been killed after several days of intense protests and riots in Mexico, that started as the result of a 20% gas price increase.

It was reported that some of the deaths resulted from protesters being shot by police with live ammunition.

“To deter the disturbances, the officers used tear gas, but the protesters did not withdraw and continued their aggressions, (and) gunfire was heard at the scene,” the Mexican government admitted in a statement.

President Enrique Pena Nieto is unwavering by the protests, and has promised to follow through with the price increase, explaining that previous subsidies enacted by the government have kept the price of gas artificially low.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Heard anything about this from the corporate presstitutes the last couple of days, even with the US's large complement of people with Hispanic and Mexican roots, to whom such news would be very important?!?

Thought not.

CNN IS NOW LEAST TRUSTED NEWS NETWORK AMONG VIEWERS

A recent poll of cable news network viewers found that CNN’s regular audience is far more skeptical of the political news they receive than Fox News fans.

In the poll published Wednesday by Rasmussen Reports, 1,000 likely voters were asked to describe their media viewing habits. Seventy-five percent said they watch at least some form of cable news each week, with 42 percent saying they most frequently watch Fox News, 35 percent usually choosing CNN, and 19 percent favoring MSNBC.

An even 50 percent of frequent Fox News viewers agreed with a followup question, “Do you trust the political news you are getting?” By comparison, 43 percent of frequent MSNBC viewers and just 33 percent of those who mostly watch CNN said they trust their political news.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Clinton News Network has earned this lack of trust, by continually and faithfully regurgitating everything the US government tells it to, in order to support its agendas.

What they do cannot ever be construed as critical, intelligent analysis, which gives people even the semblance of the truth; it is grade A, bovine excrement propaganda, fronted by some very pretty, and very handsome, faces.

What the article conveniently chose not to mention is that people are coming to the independent media on-line, to resources like WRH, with ever greater frequency, and avoiding corporate news as though it were the plague, because of the corporate presstitutes' longstanding history of lying to the American people.

And after the lies of 9/11, and Bush's lie that "Saddam has weapons of mass destruction", stated by the White House, and obediently regurgitated by the corporate whorespondents, I cannot believe them either, ever again.

NATIONAL POLICE UNION PRESIDENT SAYS ASSET FORFEITURE ABUSE IS A 'FAKE ISSUE' GENERATED BY THE MEDIA

Chuck Canterbury, the president of the Fraternal Order of Police, has been given an editorial megaphone over at the Daily Caller. Canterbury's using this platform to defend the pretty much indefensible: civil asset forfeiture.

Colloquially known as "cops going shopping for things they want," asset forfeiture supposedly is used to take funds and property away from criminal organizations. In reality, it's become an easy way for law enforcement to take the property of others without having to put much effort into justifying the seizures. In most states, convictions are not required, meaning supposed criminal suspects are free to go… but their property isn't.

Canterbury, who previously aired his grievances nationally over director Quentin Tarantino's participation in an anti-police brutality rally, opens up this piece by trying to equate factual reporting with current hot button topic "fake news."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A memo to Chuck Canterbury; civil forfeiture, visited upon totally innocent people, rather than the criminals for whom it was intended, is criminal in the extreme.

The media is not responsible for this, but is morally obliged, if those at the top of its corporate food chain have any moral responsibility whatsoever, to report it, whenever it is a miscarriage of justice, rather than the application of justice itself.

And if this reporting of real news makes you morally uncomfortable, Mr. Canterbury, congratulations; you may still have some approximation of a conscience which has not yet been murdered outright!!

The Creation of False News — Paul Craig Roberts

For many weeks we have witnessed the extraordinary attack by the CIA and its assets in Congress and the media on Donald Trump’s election. In an unprecedented effort to delegitimize Trump’s election as the product of Russian interference in the election, the CIA, media, senators and representatives have consistently made wild accusations for which they have no evidence. The CIA’s message to Trump is clear: Get in line with our agenda, or we are going to mess you over.

Stop us if you've heard this one before: Seamen spread over California

In October, three F/A-18 Super Hornet jets dropped an unusual payload into the air over the US Navy's China Lake weapons testing facility in California – more than 100 semi-autonomous drones.

The Perdix drones, 6- by 12-inch propeller-powered unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), were fired out of the flare dispensers of the aircraft and then self-organized into a swarm. Ground controllers directed them to search a nearby road and the 103 drones headed over and sorted out the best way to do the job themselves.

"Due to the complex nature of combat, Perdix are not pre-programmed synchronized individuals – they are a collective organism, sharing one distributed brain for decision-making and adapting to each other like swarms in nature," said William Roper, director of the Department of Defense's (DoD's) Strategic Capabilities Office, on Monday this week.

Fort Worth, TX Cop William Martin Given 'Ten Day Vacation' For Attacking Black Family In Viral Video- Lawyer Speaks Out

Attorney Lee Merritt speaks out in Fort Worth TX on 1/9/17 about the police decision to give officer William Martin a mere ten days off after he attacked Jacqueline Craig and her daughters, who had called police for help after a neighbor reportedly choked her seven year old son for littering. As any reasonable person can see in the original video, clearly this cop is an unhinged mental-case, a dangerous violent maniac, and this is a genuinely gross miscarriage of justice. I've seen a lot of bad cop videos in my life and even recorded a few that have nearly ten million views, but honesty, aside from the ones where cops murder innocent people, this video from Fort Worth absolutely took the cake.

Tampa police arrest volunteers for feeding the homeless

Seven activists were arrested this week for feeding hungry, freezing homeless people in a Tampa city park.

Volunteers from Food Not Bombs were aware that their actions were technically illegal and chose to pass out food anyway.

The group often feeds the homeless in public spaces. Although they were made aware that their actions required a special permit, they proceeded with passing out food. The permit required to feed the homeless twice a week in a public setting can be expensive due to the heavy insurance policy the city requires.

Following Jerusalem Attack, Israel Seeks Detention Without Trial of Suspected ISIS Supporters

The security cabinet decided Sunday to use administrative detention orders, or detention without trial, against suspects who identify with the Islamic State group. The measure was at a meeting of the security cabinet following an attack in Jerusalem that claimed the lives of four soldiers, a senior official said.

Security sources told the ministers at the meeting that the measures were already taken in response to the attack. The measures included a blockade of the Palestinian Jabal Mukkaber neighborhood, adjacent to the site of the attack, from which the attacker is said to have driven the truck.
The security cabinet also resolved to demolish the home of the driver of the truck as soon as possible and to reject requests by the attacker's family for family reunification with relatives who live in the territories. It was also decided that the body of the attacker would not be returned to his family.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Watch this indefinite detention "slop over" against peaceful Palestinian protesters, who are advocating for basic human rights, and quickly.

First week of 2017: Israel demolishes homes of 151 Palestinians, almost four times last year's average

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s promise to settlers from the unauthorized outpost of Amona to enforce the law "equally" by demolishing the homes of Arabs is being strictly fulfilled.

The number of Palestinian buildings demolished in the first week of January 2017 is almost four times as high as the weekly average for 2016: 20 structures. In 2015, the average was 10 structures a week, according to the records of the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA).

In Area C, which is under full Israeli civil and security control, between Monday and Thursday the Israel Defense Forces’ Civil Administration demolished 65 structures in Palestinian communities, and seven rainwater cisterns. The Jerusalem Municipality demolished another two homes in East Jerusalem. Some 151 people, including 90 children, lived in the buildings that were demolished.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Apparently, Israel has more than 50 shades of serial genocide and slow death for Palestinians, and this is one of them.

Where do these people go, especially the children?!? What happens to the Palestinians who had lived in these now demolished housing?!?

Israeli witness in Gaza: No water, no electricity and children dying unnecessarily

Is that part of the procedure, this questioning?

“Yes. A request is submitted to the Israeli side and a summons is received to appear at a specific time for questioning.”

How does Hamas allow this?

“Hamas warns people not to provide any information. There are even signs on the Palestinian side of border crossings warning people going for questioning not to divulge anything, telling them to remember that the homeland is more precious than anything else.”

Doesn’t it make patients give up?

“Many people do. They are simply afraid. Even those who aren’t afraid aren’t guaranteed that they’ll get a permit. It can take months. Sometimes there is no reply at all. Many people die while waiting. There is also the issue of blackmail.”

Meaning what?

“Their travel permit is granted only on condition that they collaborate – information in exchange for an entry permit.”

You’re saying that the Shin Bet blackmails these patients? Can you prove that?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These activities against sick Palestinians constitutes slow motion genocide, courtesy of the Israeli government; and collective punishment, i.e., not allowing people medical treatment they desperately need, constitutes a war crime.

End All the Craziness Over North Korea

North Korea has ‘entered the final stage of preparation for the test launch of an intercontinental ballistic missile(ICBM)’. So crowed North Korea’s young leader, Kim Jong-un, in his New Year’s Day message aimed at tough-talking US president-elect, Donald Trump.

But there no need to squander trillions on new anti-missile defenses based in Alaska and California that may not work as advertised. North Korea’s missiles are designed to deter a US attack.

The alleged dire threat from North Korea can be better and more swiftly resolved by intelligent diplomacy and some calm thinking.

North Korea is a small, backwards, dirt poor nation of 25 million that has been under a fierce US-imposed sanctions regime for over half a century. Call it a North Asian Cuba. Without modest economic and military help from China, North Korea would likely have collapsed long ago. It remains under constant siege by the US and allies.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A memo to President-Elect Trump; in order to get negotiations going, the US government will have to enlist the assistance of China (remember; that same China Obama dissed while a guest of the Chinese at the G-20 last year G20: Obama warns Beijing against South China Sea aggression)

That may well take some time and a lot of finesse, but a working relationship with China regarding North Korea will be critical to get this going.

What we need here are trade guarantees, coupled with a firm quid pro quo that to get this peace treaty to replace the existing armistice, North Korea must end its nuclear weapons program, period, end of discussion.

It can be done, with enough will and hard-won, intelligent, moral negotiations.

The last thing in the world this country needs, President-Elect Trump, is a shooting war with China. Please have one of your military advisors talk to you about recent strides in weaponry, ships, and fighter jets the Chinese have made over the last decade, then ask yourself; can the current standoff with North Korea be overcome by any other means than war?!?

Thankfully, sir, the short answer, is yes.

U.S. ADMITS ISRAEL IS BUILDING PERMANENT APARTHEID REGIME — WEEKS AFTER GIVING IT $38 BILLION

Honest observers on both sides of the conflict have long acknowledged that the prospects for a two-state solution are virtually non-existent: another way of saying that Israel’s status as a permanent apartheid regime is inevitable. Indeed, U.S. intelligence agencies as early as 45 years ago explicitly warned that Israeli occupation would become permanent if it did not end quickly.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Israel has, in the 21st century, become a wretchedly apartheid, self-proclaimed theocracy with nuclear weapons, which means that a true and just peace in the Middle East can no longer be achieved.

The US government has consistently enabled this behaviour.

The engineering of the locations of settlers' compounds has been deliberately created to make a contiguous Palestinian state completely impossible.

All Palestinians can expect now is more serial genocide, coupled with robust expulsions from homes in which Palestinian families have lived for generations, and the seizing of more Palestinian lands.

For all the Syrian refugees the US government has admitted into this country, there should have been a robust program to entitle Palestinians to come to the US; because the US and Israeli government have, in concert, created a situation in which the Palestinians will have no home anymore, whatsoever.

Blogger is asked to delete info on Oregon refuge occupation informants

Federal prosecutors want a judge to order a Northern California man to remove all information from his website about confidential informants involved in the takeover of a national wildlife refuge in Oregon last winter.

In court filings Friday, prosecutors said the information posted by Gary Hunt, 70, was turned over to defense attorneys in the case pursuant to a protective order that barred it from being shared with outside parties, The Oregonian/OregonLive reported. Hunt has been involved in Operation Mutual Defense, a network of militias and supporters founded by Ryan Payne, one of the refuge occupation’s organizers.

“Public dissemination of the material produced under this Court’s Protective Order could threaten ongoing investigations and the safety of government confidential human sources, informants or others,” wrote Assistant U.S. Attorney Pamala Holsinger.

"The FBI And Others Are Doing An Excellent Job Detecting, Investigating, Preventing, And Prosecuting Terrorist Plots In The Homeland"(!) He mentioned how effectively they keep dangerous loaded weapons out of airports! Johnson also stressed public vigilance (I guess that doesn't include the FBI?) and he specifically addressed ISIS and lone wolf internet extremism: He added that the FBI specifically is doing a superb job, literally as the gunman is on his flight to carry out the masacre! The very murderer who had TURNED HIMSELF IN TO THE FBI SHORTLY BEFORE THE ATTACK!

If Trump really believes this he has jumped the shark. If Priebus made it up he should be fired.

According to Priebus, "no one is disputing" that Russia is responsible for the leaking of internal emails from the DNC and Clinton campaign officials.

"[Trump] accepts the fact that this particular case was entities in Russia," he said during an appearance on "Fox News Sunday," adding that it is possible that Trump will consider sanctions against Russia after taking into account the US intelligence community's recommendations as to what should be done.

THIS IS A COUP: THE HOMELAND SECURITY TAKEOVER OF US ELECTIONS

On Friday, the traditional day of the week for quietly releasing big news that will hopefully be ignored by the public—and also obscured by the Fort Lauderdale Airport shooting—the chief of Homeland Security announced that his office will be taking over US elections.

If you can’t see the coup in progress, you need to keep looking until the message comes through.

Read carefully—ABC News reports. My comments are in brackets:

“Citing increasingly sophisticated cyber bad actors and an election infrastructure that’s ‘vital to our national interests’, Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson announced Friday that he’s designating U.S. election systems critical infrastructure…”

[Also known as: “we’re taking over.”]

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The timing of this announcement by Mr. Johnson intrigues me; why would he make that announcement now, understanding full well that his agency will be headed by a Trump appointee, and many of the people he currently supervises will be gone right after the transition to a Trump presidency?

How he believes that elements of the DNC will still be in control of much of the agency's infrastructure, after Trump is inaugurated, is more than a little curious.

Is this a desperate, last-ditch effort to overturn the election results in the last two weeks of the Obama administration, before Trump's inauguration?

Although the Central Intelligence Agency has had a long history of undermining presidents-elect and prime ministers-elect in other countries, the United States has never witnessed the intelligence agency so blatantly attempting to politically weaken a U.S. president-elect just a few weeks prior to the inauguration. What the CIA is doing in forcing Donald Trump into shifting from his campaign promise of restoring good relations with Russia to one of outright hostility to Moscow — favored by the CIA, Director of National Intelligence (DNI), and the neo-conservatives within the Republican and Democratic party establishments — is nothing less than an overt threat to American democracy.

4 KILLED, 700 ARRESTED IN MEXICO PROTESTS FOLLOWING NEOLIBERAL REFORMS

Protests over a double-digit hike in gasoline prices in Mexico continue in at least 22 states of the country, officials said on Friday, as they confirmed that the wave of violent lootings and blockades has left three people dead and at least 700 arrested.

Business leaders estimate that some 1,000 shops and companies have been looted or vandalized this week as others closed over fears of being robbed.

Protesters argue that the government’s decision to raise fuel prices by up to 20 percent has no justification in an oil-rich country, but the government insists that the move responds to international prices and not a result of the government’s neoliberal reforms.

On Thursday night President Enrique Peña Nieto used a nationally televised New Year’s address to defend the increase, again.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF, in fact, Nieto calls in the Mexican military, the only question left will be, will the military side with the Federal Government, or with those protesting?!?

‘Fake news’? Time to choose: Corporate media fakes us by ignoring King Family civil trial verdict that US government assassinated Martin with OVERWHELMING evidence, pretends to ‘honor’ Martin every January (7 of 15)

Coretta Scott King: “We have done what we can to reveal the truth, and we now urge you as members of the media, and we call upon elected officials, and other persons of influence to do what they can to share the revelation of this case to the widest possible audience.” – King Family Press Conference, Dec. 9, 1999.

Dr. King’s 2-minute message to you (full 1967 speech to end the Vietnam War):

Dr. Martin Luther King’s family and personal friend/attorney, William F. Pepper, won a civil trial that found US government agencies guilty of Martin's assassination/wrongful death. The 1999 trial, King Family versus Jowers and Other Unknown Co-Conspirators, is the only trial ever conducted on the assassination of Dr. King. The King Center fully documents the case, with full trial transcript (to more fully explain the following summary of trial evidence, here is the best article I've found).

"Today, the national security apparatus of the federal government, of which DHS is a part, must continue to guard against large and small scale "terrorist-directed" attacks originating from overseas, but now must also detect and prevent "terrorist-inspired" attacks from homegrown violent extremists. These actors are inspired by effective terrorist use of the Internet, live among us in the homeland, and most often plan and attack alone and in secret, with little or no notice to law enforcement. ISIL has, in effect, outsourced terrorism when it comes to the U.S. homeland. The Obama Administration has been very successful in degrading al Qaeda and its affiliates.

Anti-Russia “Fake News” Campaign Rolled out Across Europe. Moscow Tagged as a Sponsor of ISIS-Daesh

This is the content of the resolution passed by the European Parliament on November 23, on “EU strategic communication to counteract propaganda against it by third parties.” The declared aim of the extensive resolution is to combat “third-party actors aiming to discredit” the European Union (EU) that “do not share the same [European] values.”

The resolution then defines as the main “actors” Russia and Daesh (or ISIL) and it is Russia that occupies most of the resolution.

It equates Russia with “transnational terrorist and criminal organisations…” that have “repeatedly engaged in a strategy of deliberate deception and disinformation, especially in the ‘new media’, social networks and the digital sphere…”

Accusing Russia of “information warfare”, the resolution asserts that it “is employing a wide range of tools and instruments” to “challenge democratic values, divide Europe, gather domestic support and create the perception of failed states in the EU’s eastern neighbourhood…”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A memo to the EU: with these accusations regarding Russia, you have REALLY "jumped the shark", and have become totally irrelevant and useless to the futures of the countries you allegedly represent.

And to conflate Russia with ISIS?!?

Please, have you all gone absolutely barking mad, to use this analogy?!?

Kindly get your collective heads out of a very dark, unpleasant place, and sniff some sunshine, for heaven's sake!!

Russia is not the problem here; it is the dissatisfaction of Europeans having to live with the regulations of the out-of-touch, tone-deaf and blind EU Eurocrats in Brussels which has caused a populist uprising, and a very strong desire to break free of an economic and financial system which is great for large corporate banking and taxing entities, but lousy for the people living in the countries which comprise the EU.

I do not know how much longer the EU, or the Euro, will actually survive; but my sense is, without a major war, fronted by NATO and the US against Russia, it will ultimately have to collapse of its own weight, as the basic international understandings which created it were based on false assumptions.

It is the "fake news", regurgitated by corporate presstitutes to further government agendas, worldwide, which get people killed.

Do any of you Eurocrats remember what happened after the US government accused Saddam Hussein of "having weapons of mass destruction"?!?

I rest my case.

Strikes Spread in Mexico, Thousands of Police Deployed to Capital

Police made up to 600 arrests throughout Mexico yesterday as protests continued against President Enrique Pena Nieto’s cut to gas subsidies, known colloquially as the gasolinazo. One police officer was killed during confrontations in an impoverished neighborhood of Mexico City, and the mayor deployed 9,000 police to guard commercial centers throughout the city.

Yesterday also saw indications that localized protests by workers may be developing into a broader strike movement. Fourteen thousand bus, truck and taxi drivers in the oil-producing state of Veracruz announced a statewide strike of indefinite length, with many leaving their trucks, cabs, and buses parked on the street.

The trade unions are stepping in to prevent the demonstrations from coalescing into a nationwide strike. Trade union bureaucrats who announced the recent strikes stated explicitly that they were forced to do so by workers, who in the words of one trade union official, are becoming “violent.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If, in fact, the Mexican military is called in to put down these riots, the only real question will be: to whom will they owe their allegiance?!?

To the protestors, or to the government?!?

Mainstream media’s 10 favorite fake news tricks

Which leads to an 11th form of fake news: if one lie doesn’t quite fly, tell a much bigger lie. And these mainstream sources are currently shouting and bloviating about independent media spreading fake news. I guess you could call that number 12: accusing their opponents of committing the crimes they are, in fact, committing.

Yemen's Children Starve as War Drags On

As the first light of dawn trickles in through the hospital window, 19-year-old Mohammed Ali learns that his two-year-old cousin has died of hunger. But he has to remain strong for his little brother Mohannad, who could be next.

He holds his brother's hand as the five-year-old struggles to breathe, his skin stretched tight over tiny ribs. "I have already lost a cousin to malnutrition today, I can't lose my little brother," he says.

They are among countless Yemenis who are struggling to feed themselves amid a grinding civil war that has pushed the Arab world's poorest nation to the brink of famine. The family lives in a mud hut in northern Yemen, territory controlled by Shiite Houthi rebels, who are at war with government forces and a Saudi-led and U.S.-backed coalition.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When I was a kid, growing up, I never, in my wildest imagination, could imagine my country, the United States of America, as ever being complicit in war crimes; fast forward to 2015, and the US government sure as hell is.

Collective punishment of a population is a war crime; the Saudi blockade of Yemeni ports is making this happen, and the US government is enabling Saudi war crimes in Yemen.

The killing and wounding of innocent non-combatants, particularly when they are children, is a war crime: the US government is enabling Saudi war crimes in Yemen.

And if you want to know what daily life is looking like, particularly for Yemenite children, take a good, hard look at these images:

Images: children starving due to Saudi Naval blockade of Yemen

Images: Yemeni children wounded or killed from Saudi bombings

After President Trump is inaugurated, We the People need to have a very sober conversation with his administration, to see where the US government is with continuing to enable Saudi war crimes in Yemen; and I say this because at the end of the day, the only real solution to the conflict will have to be a political one.

The killing of non-combatants is a war crime.

US Officials Say Russia Approval of Trump Win Is ‘Evidence’ of Hacking

The “evidence” that Russia was behind the hacking of Democratic Party targets ahead of the 2016 US election appears as flimsy as ever, as officials start to let out what appears to have been the cornerstone of their entire narrative, that Russia was happy Trump won the election.

Officials conceded today that the important evidence that let to their “conclusion” only came after the election was already finished, by way of explaining why they didn’t make such accusations before the vote, and the Washington Post report quotes senior officials as saying a major part of that conclusion was intercepted communications showing Russia was happy with the outcome.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A short memo to the editorial board of the Washington Compost: you cannot "double down" on nothing, and pretend that you actually have something, which is just what you have done with this faux "justification" of blaming Russian hackers for breaches of the DNC computers, when the FBI was refused access to the DNC's computers in the first place, after the claim of hacking went public.

FBI refused access to DNC computers "allegedly" hacked by the Russians

I think, rather than "happy" at the outcome from the Russia side, the more correct word would be "relief". They knew what was in store, should Clinton have gotten elected, and that is a three letter word, called "war".

Clinton is a card-carrying warmonger, and darling of the military industrial complex. During her campaign, look at the CVs of her advisors, and will someone tell me that ANY of them were willing to "give peace a chance"?!?

Not until pigs fly, most probably.

Hillary Clinton’s National Security Advisers Are a “Who’s Who” of the Warfare State

Clinton's Syria policy would require war with Russia

How Hillary Clinton Became a War Hawk

The warhawks and warmongers wanted her as their president, big-time, because she was in lock-step with their agenda; We the People were not.

And as a peace activist myself, I was relieved when Trump won the election; because although I don't believe he will be averse to using military action where there is no other way to get something done, I sincerely believe that he will explore all possible peaceful options before his military are directed to put our young men and women who serve in harm's way.

Clinton, on the other hand, wouldn't have given a rat's anus about those Americans killed and maimed for life, because for her, and her inner circle, it's all about the money, and wars of conquest becoming wars of personal enrichment.

FLASHBACK 2013 - U.S. Repeals Propaganda Ban, Spreads Government-Made News to Americans

For decades, a so-called anti-propaganda law prevented the U.S. government’s mammoth broadcasting arm from delivering programming to American audiences. But on July 2, that came silently to an end with the implementation of a new reform passed in January. The result: an unleashing of thousands of hours per week of government-funded radio and TV programs for domestic U.S. consumption in a reform initially criticized as a green light for U.S. domestic propaganda efforts. So what just happened?

VERY POWERFUL PEOPLE IN THE U.S. GOVERNMENT WANT WAR – THIS IS THEIR SALES PITCH

The rising hysteria about Russia is best understood as fulfilling two needs for Official Washington: the Military Industrial Complex’s transitioning from the “war on terror” to a more lucrative “new cold war” – and blunting the threat that a President Trump poses to the neoconservative/liberal-interventionist foreign-policy establishment.

By hyping the Russian “threat,” the neocons and their liberal-hawk sidekicks, who include much of the mainstream U.S. news media, can guarantee bigger military budgets from Congress. The hype also sets in motion a blocking maneuver to impinge on any significant change in direction for U.S. foreign policy under Trump.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A memo to both the American and Russian governments: the American people, adamantly, do not want a war with Russia.

And to the American government; I have been unable to believe a single thing you have said to the American people since 9/11, which was a notorious pack of lies you used to sell the American people on the other lies upon which you predicated the invasion - and occupation - of both Afghanistan, and Iraq.

As a Christian pacifist activist with a voice on this blog, who constantly entreats her government to resolve its geopolitical issues through patient, moral, and hard-won negotiations, rather than through war, I must warn our readers the US government is making an horrific mistake by pushing a war against Russia (and/or China) right now.

Because pulling back, and looking at the "big picture", I understand, without question, that we do not have the weaponry, the money, the troop strength, or the manufacturing to insure a positive result from a conventional war against Russia.

Right now, when US weapons are field deployed, they are, many times, so late as to be obsolete relative to their original mission; absolutely do not work as advertised (need I remind you of the continuous fluster-cluck which has been the saga of the F-35?!?); and are hideously over-budget.

Russia and China are getting a lot more bang for their weaponry buck right now, without paying anywhere near what the US government is paying for substandard, and failing, equipment: here are some examples, from readily accessible web sources:

Army 2016 forum: Top 8 newest Russian weapons

Russia successfully tests its first-ever hypersonic weapon

Top 10 Most Powerful Weapons of The Russian Military 2016 -2020

Russia's Hybrid Atomic Weapons

To put the US military, and its people, into a war the US military most probably cannot win, for the reasons I have enumerated above, is the ultimate betrayal of the American people by elements of the "deep state" in this country, and it must - peacefully and logically - be stopped in its tracks, and now.

After AirBnB Ban, New Yorkers Show The Country How to Stand Up to Government

Tacitus, a senator and historian of the Roman Empire, once wrote that when “laws were most numerous, … the commonwealth was most corrupt.”

Much like the people of the Roman Empire, United States residents now suffer due to the country’s overly-regulated system. Too many rules, Tacitus would have repeated, indicate corruption. But America’s love for crony capitalism is deep-rooted and allows special interests the means to leave nothing to chance. The result? Government and its representatives now have more power than ever, and the young individual is poorer today than those of past generations.

As local and state governments chase the same unattainable goal, passing more laws to keep the individual beholden to powerful interests, people working in the shadows seem to thrive — at least, that’s what recent reports on AirBnB hosts in New York suggest.

Bill Gates quietly funding effort to develop thousands of new vaccines that conveniently ‘might’ become pandemics

Bill and Melinda Gates, via their Gates Foundation, have donated billions of dollars to fund new vaccines—medicines that, in fact, have caused great harm to a great number of people. But with about a million viruses in existence that we still know nothing about, it’s likely that the Gates Foundation and other globalists will pour more resources into developing new vaccines that will work to reduce the population.

Webmaster's Commentary:

CNN’s Don Lemon on Chicago Torture Video: ‘I Don’t Think It Was Evil’

CNN host Don Lemon said Wednesday evening the broadcasted torture of a bound and gagged victim in Chicago was not “evil,” adding that the suspects had “bad home training.”
News broke nationally Wednesday after a Facebook Live video showed the victim beaten, slashed, held at knifepoint, and more in a Chicago apartment while assailants are heard saying “fuck white people” and “fuck Trump.” Chicago police held a press conference the same day to announce an investigation is underway and four adults are in police custody. The suspects held the “traumatized” victim for as many as 48 hours, police said.

“The fact that this was a vulnerable person that was probably duped into going along with them. It appears it is someone who is mentally disabled, I think makes it even more sickening,” said guest Matt Lewis. “But at the end of the day, you just try to wrap your head around evil. That’s what this is, it’s evil. It’s brutality. It’s man’s inhumanity to man.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Yes, one has to wonder where their parents are (or were); but one cannot absolve these kids for having no sense of moral responsibility whatsoever.

And Don Lemon, shame on you for attempting to absolve them of any responsibility for their actions, in this segment; their actions were a profound embarrassment to the entire human race!!

Call this disgusting attack in Obama’s back yard exactly what it is: a Trump-hating race crime against a defenseless white man by young black Americans who shame their country

Few things shock me, as a hard-bitten journalist.
But today, I’m in shock.
I just watched a video that didn’t just sicken me, it contaminated every pore of my soul with feelings of pure, unadulterated, raw disgust and hatred.
The short piece of film I endured depicts a gang of four black teenage thugs, two male, two female, abusing and torturing a poor terrified young white man with special needs.

The sheer scale of their depravity appears to know no bounds.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is the logical outcome of all the race-baiting which Obama and Hillary clinton did during the Presidential campaign.

But I have a question; where the hell are these kids' parents?!?

Is this what they taught them, that beating up someone was "perfectly all right and thoroughly moral" because this special needs man was caucasian?!?

All racism is wrong, period, end of of discussion; and the consequences of racism in this country have been, admittedly, horrific; but does racism become "acceptable" if it is black racism against caucasians?!?

And shouldn't ALL Americans be working together to stamp out ALL racism, completely?!?

I was very lucky, during college, to have attended Cal State Dominguez Hills, which was an absolute rainbow community, in terms of its ethic mix. But very kid there, no matter if they were European, Hispanic, Asian, or African-American decent, or any combination thereof, had their eyes, collectively, on the prize, and that was a degree which would help us excel in life.

We sat together; studied together; laughed together, and sometimes, cried together. But the point was, we did this, as human beings, together.

THAT's the kind of America I want to see happen; where families are loving, secure, and where kids learn to be morally responsible, and work with everyone around them in a loving and kind way.

I want to see kids in the poorest of our neighborhoods get the first class education every kid deserves in this country.

It is painfully obvious that the kids who perpetrated these attacks against this defenseless special needs guy never had that.

Unfortunately, the American penal system is weighted infinitely more heavily on punishment than it is on rehabilitation; so even if they are sent away to prison for an ungodly amount of time, the chances that they will come out rehabilitated, and unlikely to re-offend, are slim to none.

US Aid Package to Israel Incentivizes War

On September 14, 2016, the United States and Israel signed a “memorandum of understanding” (MOU) pledging $38 billion in “security assistance” to Israel over ten years. The agreement replaces a similar MOU signed by the Bush administration.

However, the Obama administration claimed two key differences on its MOU web page. First, Israel is not allowed to lobby Congress for hundreds of millions in additional funds from its embassy and US affinity organizations. Second, more of the ten-year allotment must be spent on US military contractors rather than inside Israel. However, “escape clauses” in the written agreement – which the White House never released – make such limitations unlikely. Most worrying, the MOU dangles Israel a blank check if it launches war on its neighbors, while continuing to provide the IDF with the free food and fuel it would need to sustain such a conflict.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

President Obama should have known better than to have signed off on this deal; and if he thought, for one second, that Israel would use this money for defensive, rather than offensive, military operations, he was being dangerously naive, and indulging in what can only be characterised as "magical thinking".

The nation of Israel just cannot get along with nearly any countries in its neighborhood; and potentially, Israel may well use this money toward waging wars on neighboring countries it thinks it can get away with attacking, potentially like Lebanon, which is no where nearly as militarily capable as is Israel.

A Special Appeal

Over the past 41+ years, with over 20 years of good time (GT) credit, I have now over 60 prison years of time served. Under the Old Law system that applies to my case, this is by far longer than I was supposed to serve. Per the laws I’m under and that apply to my case, 7 years was a life sentence!! It did not mean that was all I was supposed to serve, but that I was eligible to be paroled and unless they had evidence to keep me in prison, I was to be granted parole.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

For those unfamiliar with the story of Leonard, see the documentary "Incident at Oglala", which is available online as a pay per view. The events of that case were fictionalized into "Thunder Heart", the best film Val Kilmer ever did.

The short version was that the FBI was embarrassed by the killing of their agents, and needed to "get someone" to save face. Leonard was that someone, and he was clearly set up and framed, which is why even today the FBI opposes a pardon and even screamed to get a statute of Leonard removed from a college campus (see below).

More details are in the following video.

US Senators Introduce Bill to Move Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem

Three US senators introduced a bill to congress on Wednesday that would recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s undivided capital and move the US embassy there from Tel Aviv, defying international stances on the decades-old Israeli-Palestinian conflict resting on a two-state solution.

According to The Guardian, Republican senators Ted Cruz (Texas), Dean Heller (Nevada), and Marco Rubio (Florida), introduced the Jerusalem Embassy and Recognition Act at the 115th Congress in Washington on Wednesday, as Republicans control both the Senate and House of Representatives for the first time since 2007.

If implemented, the bill would give legitimacy to Israel’s illegal occupation of East Jerusalem since 1967, disregard Palestinian claims to the city, and possibly terminate a longstanding White House policy to perpetually defer a 1995 Congressional decision to recognize Jerusalem as the Israeli capital and move the embassy there.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Should such a move go forward, it will cripple any chances for a true and lasting peace in the Middle East, and demonstrate that the US government is pathologically incapable of being an "honest broker" for peace between Israelis and Palestinians.

2016 'deadliest year' for West Bank children in decade

Israeli forces have killed more Palestinian children in the occupied West Bank, including East Jerusalem, in 2016 than any other year in the last decade, rights group Defence for Children International (DCI) has said.

The organisation's chapter in the occupied Palestinian territories recorded the killings of 32 Palestinian children (under 18), making 2016 "the deadliest year of the past decade" for them, the group said in a recent report.

Many of those killings happened during Israeli military raids on Palestinian towns in the occupied West Bank, confrontations with the Israeli army or during unarmed protests.

"Israeli soldiers employ a shoot-to-kill policy. They have the green light to kill Palestinians, and the fact that they can do so with impunity and no consequences builds the foundation for such shootings to take place," Ayed Abu Eqtaish, Accountability Programme Director at DCI-Palestine, told Al Jazeera.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The assassination of children is an assassination of a culture's future, and this is precisely what is happening to Palestinian kids in the West Bank and East Jerusalem.

Serial Israeli genocide of Palestinians, coupled with robust expulsions of Palestinian families from homes in which those families have lived for generations, appears to be the order of the day in Israel.

But there is a statement that lawmakers in Tel Aviv should keep in mind from the Jewish tradition as expressed by the highly respected Rabbi, Maimonides: "Do not do anything to anyone which you would not want done to you."

I do not know how, or in what format, but the hubristic intransigence of Israel in preventing the establishment of a Palestinian state may well come back to haunt it, and with an unimaginable vengeance.

At least 50 Donald Trump electors were illegally seated as Electoral College members: report

More than 50 Electoral College members who voted for Donald Trump were ineligible to serve as presidential electors because they did not live in the congressional districts they represented or held elective office in states legally barring dual officeholders.

That stunning finding is among the conclusions of an extensive 1,000-plus page legal briefing prepared by a bipartisan nationwide legal team for members of Congress who are being urged to object to certifying the 2016 Electoral College results on Friday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Hillaryites are still playing games. If Congress rejects the electoral college vote, the election gets thrown into the Congress under the rules in the Twelfth Amendment, which limits Congress to considering only the top three candidates from the electoral college results. That is Trump, Clinton, and Powell. Congress is not going to vote Hillary in. Colin Powell is hardly situated to replace Trump, so the Congress will vote Trump into the White House.

All this liberalologist whining and crying is wrecking America's image around the world.

GREECE BANS CASH: TAX-ALLOWANCE POSSIBLE ONLY THROUGH PAYMENTS VIA PLASTIC MONEY

Greece is banning the use of cash the soft way. As of 1.1. 2017, taxpayers will be granted tax-allowance and tax deduction only when they have made payments via credit or debit cards. The new guidelines refer to employees, pensioners, farmers but also unemployed.

Accepted expenditure will be:

purchases for food and supermarket products, electronic and electric devices, household equipment, footwear, clothing, fuel, furniture, cigarettes*, drinks

Restaurants, cafeterias,bars and hotels

Services like by hairdressers and beauty parlors, gyms and dance schools, car repair, plumbers, electricians, painters, carpenters, lawyers and accountants.

For doctors and pharmacy the same practice will be valid as in last year. The tax office will accept the expenditure only if payments are made per credit card or bank transfer.

Victoria Nuland, the US Assistant Secretary of State, did not spend much time and energy with Christmas and New Year celebrations this year. She has another very urgent and pressing problem to solve, before leaving the State Department, and this is the “Cyprus conflict”. The way she wants to solve this conflict is by transforming a second member of the EU, after Greece, into a protectorate. As the proposed solution for Cyprus is higlhy unstable, powers outside the EU will be provided also with a bomb inside it, that is with the possibillity of provoking a Bosnian-type conflict inside, not outside EU borders.

Obama Seized Enough Land and Water in 8 Years to Cover Texas Three Times

Last week, in one of his final moves out of the Oval Office, Obama executively designated more than 1.5 million acres of land as national monuments, preserving their untouched façade while closing them to human expansion, development, energy use, ranching or state or local jurisdiction.

In a move ignored by the liberal media last week, Obama unilaterally seized more than 1.3 million acres from Utah to establish the Bears Ears Monument, preserving it at the behest of conservationist groups and Native American tribes who claimed the land was sacred. Utah’s state legislature, however, opposed the unilateral land grab across party lines, with many speculating that Obama’s move is the latest in an attempt to limit efforts from incoming President Donald Trump to expand domestic energy production.

NETANYAHU’S ART OF HIDING THE TRUTH BY TWISTING WORDS

Last month, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu issued two public statements. When the United Nations Security Council passed a resolution criticizing settlements, Netanyahu attacked it for not condemning Syria. When Secretary of State John Kerry defended the Obama administration’s decision to let the resolution pass, Netanyahu attacked him for not sufficiently condemning the Palestinians.

In both responses, the Israeli leader illustrated George Orwell’s famous insight: The abuse of human beings starts with the abuse of language.

Statue of imprisoned activist Leonard Peltier coming down in D.C.

A statue of imprisoned American Indian Movement activist Leonard Peltier is being removed from the campus of American University in Washington, D.C.

The 9-foot-tall wooden statue is located outside of the AU Museum at the Katzen Arts Center. Its placement there in early December was announced by the school with the following disclaimer: "American University regards this statue as an exhibited piece of art and takes no position on the advocacy movement."

But administrators changed their minds just days after hearing from the Federal Bureau of Investigation Agents Association, a non-profit organization of active and retired agents. The group sent a letter to university president Neil Kerwin on December 29 to complain about the installation.

FLASHBACK - OF THE LIARS, BY THE LIARS, AND FOR THE LIARS

In today's enlightened age of alternative media and global internet communications, lies by rulers are quickly laid bare. Yet most people remain trapped by their beliefs of what they imagine their rulers to be, and greet each new revealed mendacity with, "What? Our ruler lied to us?" The question more properly ought to be, "When don't rulers lie to us?"

The historical fact is that all rulers lie pretty much all of the time, and each newly revealed lie ought not to be thought of as a shocking isolated incident, but merely a continuation of standard operating bullshit! In short, the vast majority of what you are told by rulers is a lie, and the rare moment of absolute truth a rare and precious gem worthy of celebration.

Here are some examples from history.

There is nothing new in a government lying to their people to start a war.

California Makes It Illegal For Parents To Make Medical Decisions

A new Orwellian bill is being proposed in California that will make it illegal for parents to make medical decisions for their own children.

The new SB-18 bill will allow the State to seize children away from their parents and their homes if parents make medical decisions that the State deems not to be in the child’s best interests.

Dr. Richard Pan, the man behind the current mandatory vaccination law (SB-277) is behind this new bill which will takes away yet more power from parents.

Obama’s Anti-Trump War Comes At The Expense of American Interests

The expulsion of 35 Russian diplomats and their family members by Obama, just weeks before leaving office, was heralded in the mainstream media as ‘response to attacking our democracy.’ What was (and still is) absent from those reports was any proof of an ‘attack.’ Technical experts laughed at “evidence” provided by the White House, independent journalists reminded the nation about the Iraq WMD lies that led the US into war, while Trump has refused to lash out at Russia, despite pressure from both major parties and their media bullhorns.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Saudi Arabia Jails and Flogs Workers for Unpaid Wage Protest

Saudi Arabian media is reporting that 49 foreign construction workers protesting unpaid wages have been sentenced to prison and corporal punishment in the form of lashes.

© FLICKR/ UN GENEVA UN Human Rights Chief Urges Saudi King to Stop Flogging of Atheist Blogger Some of the unnamed workers were reportedly sentenced in a Mecca court to four months imprisonment and 300 lashes each, on charges of destroying public property and inciting unrest. Others received prison sentences of 45 days. The nationalities of the workers have not been made public by Riyadh. The workers had primarily been employed by Saudi Oger, a construction company, and the Binladin Group, which was founded by the father of the deceased al-Qaeda leader. After the kingdom’s oil revenues collapsed, the contracted workers went unpaid.

7 Signs You’re Not Living in the ‘Land of the Free’

Alternative media followers know that there are numerous citizens sleeping away with their eyes wide open, falsely believing they’re living in the ‘land of the free.’ They still think that their government ‘cares’ for them.

Taking the case of America as an example, many American citizens have no idea about the nature of their Washington D.C Judas-despotic leaders and how they are covertly screwing them all over. How they are nothing more than henchmen for the ruling elite’s corporate/banker oppressive control system.

At 1:13 PM EST the U.S. Senate passed a budget resolution that will begin the process of repealing Obamacare. The final vote tally was 51-48. The resolution instructs the House to have a repeal bill ready by January 27.

Seven years ago, on December 24, 2009, the Senate voted 60-39 to pass Obamacare. All Republicans voted against it, all Democrats voted for it.

"Today, we take the first steps to repair the nation's broken health care system, removing Washington from the equation and putting control back where it belongs: with patients, their families, and their doctors," Republican Senator Mike Enzi of Wyoming, chairman of the Senate Budget Committee who sponsored the legislation, said in a statement.

Assange Tells Hannity: "Big Powerful Actors Want Revenge"

"I have been detained illegally, without charge for six years, without sunlight, lots of spies everywhere. It's tough... but that's the mission I set myself on. I understand the kind of game that's being played - big powerful actors will try and take revenge...it's a different thing for my family - I have young children, under 10 years old, they didn't sign up for that... and I think that is fundamentally unjust... my family is innocent, they didn't sign up for that fight."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have often apologized to Claire for that exact same thing.

Julian Assange accuses Barack Obama of trying to 'delegitimise' Donald Trump with Russia hacking claims

Wikileaks founder Julian Assange has accused Barack Obama of attempting to “delegitimise” Donald Trump ahead of his inauguration later this month.

Speaking from the Ecuadorean embassy in London, the whistleblower suggested the incumbent US President was trying to derail Mr Trump’s ascent to the White House by accusing Russia of interfering in the election.

The 45-year-old Australian told Fox News the Obama administration was “trying to delegitimise the Trump administration as it goes into the White House".

“They are trying to say that President-elect Trump is not a legitimate President,” he added.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Assange is completely correct in his assessment here.

And President Obama, the highly disgraced Donna Brazile, and the mortally flawed, former Democratic candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton, cannot, collectively, put their hands around any responsibility whatsoever for having lost the election to Trump.

A truly adult human being takes responsibility for both their successes and their failures; none of the Democrats seem to be able to do the latter, post-election, and that deficiency will come back to haunt them, big-time, in every election race around the country henceforward, until they decide to learn from their mistakes, if ever.

The DNC decided to shove the fatally flawed Clinton down the throats of the American electorate, armed with the "magical thinking" that if they hit high-density population areas of the country, they could win the Electoral College.

Wrong.

They decided to cheat the one candidate who could have, potentially, won against Trump, Bernie Sanders, out of the nomination.

Wrong again.

And unless, and until, the DNC absorbs those lessons and moves forward, the party will remain fractured and impotent, appearing like completely spoiled children, screaming and having tantrums because they did not get their way.

Is this the way they want their party to be perceived by voting Americans?!?

If not, they need to change their tone, collectively, to that of constructive engagement, not emotional obstructionism.

Just Another Typical Day At The FBI, Reading WRH & Conspiracy Sites - EVERY DAY

Sure enough, the FBI is visiting my site, again.
You can see from the ISP log that they've recently visited my site 5 times, usually clicking on from Mike Rivero-s great site WhatReallyHappened.com. I post the ISP log visits from various .gov and corporate groups occasionally just for fun' but it's important to realize that they never stop. The top tier in academia, industry, media, along with international finance and governments worldwide read Mike's site vociferously. Mike is very humble but he is very influential. The people in power very carefully watch, scrutinize and listen to what he is publishing and saying. Keep up the great work Mike & Claire, (because behind every great man is a great supportive wife!) Donate to WRH today to kindly support their work.

Facts Or Fakes: Can We Trust The Washington Post?

In November the Washington Post printed an article accusing some 200 independent media organizations of being "fake news" sites doing the bidding of the Kremlin. Their evidence? They had none, so very soon they were forced to walk back the story. On Friday they breathlessly reported that the Russians had hacked our energy grid, but it soon turned out they didn't bother to actually contact the company they reported hacked. It wasn't hacked. They had to walk back the story. Yes their credibility is shot, but they still churn out a steady stream of propaganda. What to do about their disintegrating credibility? Convince the US government that they should be in charge of vetting what is is fake news versus real news.

The Titanic Sails at Dawn: Warning Signs Point to Danger Ahead in 2017

a couple of the icebergs:

Mandatory quarantines without due process or informed consent: Under a new rule proposed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, government agents will be empowered to indefinitely detain any traveler they suspect of posing a medical risk to others without providing an explanation, subject them to medical tests without their consent, and carry out such detentions and quarantines without any kind of due process or judicial review.

Mental health assessments by non-medical personnel: As a result of a nationwide push to train a broad spectrum of so-called gatekeepers such as pastors, teachers, hair stylists, bartenders, police officers and EMTs in mental health first-aid training, more Americans are going to run the risk of being reported by non-medical personnel and detained for having mental health issues.

Old Woman In Sweden Becomes The Latest Victim of the War on Cash

Over the years, Ethel had accrued a modest and honest nest egg of around 108,450 Swedish krona which amounts to approximately $12,000 USD in cash.

To her surprise, upon her request to exchange her outdated notes, she was denied the new issue notes. The bank’s justification for denying the woman the service was that she could not produce the proper receipts to prove the cash was earned legitimately.

She was pressed with hard questions such as whether she had ever been involved in laundering money or ever had involvement in organized crime.

She was essentially assumed to be guilty until proven innocent.

Little did she know, she was dealing with the policy of the biggest and most dangerous organized criminals in the world; central bankers.

The War Against Alternative Information

The U.S. establishment is not content simply to have domination over the media narratives on critical foreign policy issues, such as Syria, Ukraine and Russia. It wants total domination. Thus we now have the “Countering Foreign Propaganda and Disinformation Act” that President Obama signed into law on Dec. 23 as part of the National Defense Authorization Act for 2017, setting aside $160 million to combat any “propaganda” that challenges Official Washington’s version of reality.

BREAKING: WikiLeaks Just Exposed Hard Drive With Clinton Documents Stolen! See The Media Cover Up!

Hillary and Bill Clinton are freaking out now though because WikiLeaks just announced that a huge hard drive containing Clinton Administration files was stolen from the National Archives!

2 Terabytes of Clinton Administration files were stolen!

Who would have motive to steal these records?

WikiLeaks seems to believe that it was the White House that did was responsible for this and it would make sense if they were trying to cover something up and we all know that isn’t something the Clinton’s shy away from.

What’s even worse about this leak is that the mainstream media never covered it! This happened back in 2009! This is in the beginning of Obama’s first term!

INTERNET POLICE FORCE: RULE 41 ALLOWS FBI ACCESS ANYWHERE, ANYTIME

Rule 41 in layman’s terms, deals with Search and Seizure. The FBI has had jurisdictional limitations, that is, until recently when these amendments were proposed to eradicate any limitations.

The Supreme Court recently approved the amendments, which in turn, means there isn’t a computer they cannot touch. That is, with the approval of a District Judge in the form of a warrant (which, if you read the text carefully, may not be required in all cases.)

Rule 41 is the icing on the distasteful cake of unwanted, treasonous invasions of privacy and unconstitutional methods of investigation and prosecution. In every sense of the word, the FBI has basically been given the power to “hack” any computer they wish, just as long as they have that fancy piece of paper their golfing buddy (a judge) issues (a warrant).

DHS Releases Border Numbers For 2016: 530,250 apprehensions nationwide, 59,757 Unaccompanied Children

The Department of Homeland Security has released their annual year-end numbers of illegal alien apprehensions for 2016. Given the fact that there are probably 20 million illegals in Los Angeles County alone, the DHS's numbers of 530,250 apprehensions nationwide is not much.
The agency notes that failure of local law enforcement to cooperate hampered their efforts and "results in convicted criminals being released back into U.S. communities with the potential to re-offend." DHS also notes that if illegals have been here a while, they simply let them be: "Rather than expending limited resources on individuals who have been in this country for many years or those charged or convicted of traffic and other minor offenses, ICE instead focuses its resources on those who pose a threat to public safety and on recent unlawful entrants.

The coming crackdown on Free Speech

The Global Engagement Center will fund and train journalists around the world to push a never-ending flow of US propaganda and cripple any independent outlet that doesn’t conform to the official government narrative.

Sadly, this is not unusual.

Each year, Congress creates a new National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), which is essentially the military budget for the following year.

But without fail, each year’s NDAA is crammed full of horrific provisions which either waste taxpayer funds on corrupt pet projects, or destroy Americans’ civil liberties.
