US airstrikes kill a dozen Afghan civilians, as battle with Taliban heats up – report

American airstrikes have killed around a dozen Afghan civilians in the northern province of Kunduz, local officials have said. The strikes came as US-backed Afghan forces and Taliban militants vie for control of the area.

One provincial councillor put the death toll at twelve, while another estimated that 13 civilians died, including children, in Saturday’s strikes. NATO spokeswoman Sergeant. Debra Richardson told Reuters that the alliance’s Resolute Support mission is aware of the casualty reports, and that it investigates all such credible allegations.

“We take every measure to prevent civilian casualties, in contrast to the Taliban who intentionally hide behind women and children,” Richardson said in a statement.

US Ships Again Provoke Beijing By Sailing Through Strait Of Taiwan

Beijing is already threatening retaliation over Washington's expected sale of dozens of F-16s and tanks to Taiwan. But as if ties between the world's two largest economies hadn't already been sufficiently strained, the Navy and Coast Guard again provoked the Chinese leadership on Sunday when they sailed two ships - identified as the Navy destroyer Curtis Wilbur and the Coast Guard cutter Bertholf - through the Strait of Taiwan.

According to Reuters, the gesture, which is part of a redoubled US effort to flex its muscles near Chinese waters, should be interpreted - like other 'freedom of navigation' operations before it - as a sign of support for Taiwan, which is struggling with an increasingly threatening Beijing. The Chinese military has been holding more military drills and missions around the island, as President Xi has made bringing the wayward province back under Beijing's thumb a top priority for his rule.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

(Sigh) In his one-man show by American comedian, Ron White, there is a phrase which I have felt was in order, looking at the deeds of the US military, currently.

At the same moment, while delicate negotiations about China's and the US's trade policy with one another continue, the only thing I can say here, is "You can't fix stupid".

Actually, stupid and reckless, would be a better characterization of these acts, done right at the moment when US/China trade relations are already very strained.

I could probably conjure up some other stupid and reckless scenarios, but the timing, on the part of the US government and military, could not possibly have been worse.

There are two schools of thought in Washington about China; the first is, destroy it militarily, while we still can the US government plans to nuke Russia and China, or cage the rage, and figure out how to treat them as allies.

As a Christian pacifist activist, I far prefer the second course of action.

But there is absolutely no middle road, between confrontation, and peaceful trade; I hope (and pray) that those in the Bowels of Power in DC, understand that, regarding how we treat China.

JIM STONE: DUE TO THE MILLIONS OF DEAD CALVES CAUSED BY THE MIDWEST FLOODS, STOCK UP ON BEEF NOW

Governor Ricketts of Nebraska has stated that over a million calves are dead in his state due to massive and unprecedented flooding that drowned the herds. Obviously more than calves were lost, a lot of adult cows were lost also, along with other livestock and the fastest possible recovery from this will be 4 years. It is too early to know if the growing season is canceled but it appears it may be, growing can be recovered in one season if the timing is right, the loss of cows is what is bad with all of this so far.

UNHRC VOTES 23-8 FOR ARMS EMBARGO AND WAR CRIMES SUITS AGAINST ISRAEL

The United Nations Human Rights Council voted 23-8 for an arms embargo against Israel and the prosecution of Israelis for war crimes over IDF actions along the Gaza border last year.

It was one of five anti-Israel resolutions which the UNHRC approved on Friday in Geneva as it wrapped up its 40th session.

Australia was the only country who voted against all five of the texts. Neither Israel or the United States are members of the council.

BEX ALERT - The internet is radicalizing white men. Big tech could be doing more

Among the many tragedies of the massacre at two New Zealand mosques on Friday is a bitter irony: The terrorist who killed at least 50 people in an Islamophobic attack resembled in many ways a member of ISIS. If his life had gone different in some way, he might well have ended up one and killed people somewhere else in its name. The type of extremism and hatred is of course different. But they have at least one thing in common: the internet as a tool of radicalization.

Maduro Allegedly Foils US Assassination Plot Against Him That Used BofA Funds 

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro on Saturday said the country's special forces have thwarted a plan to assassinate him, directed by the opposition’s leader Juan Guaido, reported Agence France-Presse.

"The North American imperialism wants to kill me. We have just exposed a plan to kill me, which was personally led by the devil’s puppet [Guaido]," Maduro told thousands of supporters in Caracas, noting that government prosecutors had made significant progress in investigating the "terrorist plot."

Turkey Blames JPMorgan For Lira Crash, Launches Probe; Erdogan Threatens "Manipulators"

On Friday, when the Turkish lira suddenly cracked, and suffered its biggest one-day drop since last summer's crisis as public attention turned to the sudden plunge in the nation's reserves and the bank's unexpected 150bps equivalent tightening in policy, JPMorgan FX strategists poured gasoline on the fire when - as the lira was sliding - they published a note recommending a 5.90 target on the USDTRY.

As JPM analysts Anezka Christovova and Saad Siddiqui wrote on Friday morning recommending a lira short, Turkish authorities would likely "attach less significance to lira stability and reduce FX reserve support" for the currency following March 31 elections, resulting in further lira weakness, adding that the pace at which Turkey’s burning net foreign reserves is “unsustainable” and therefore “FX reserve support will abate post local elections on March 31, which could lead to USDTRY trading substantially higher."

US-Backed Kurds Declare ISIS ‘Defeated’ in Syria

Following repeated false claims of victory, the US-backed Kurdish Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) announced on Saturday that they are formally declaring ISIS to be “100% territorially defeated,” with the final capture of Baghouz, in Syria’s far east.

This comes after several years of fighting against ISIS, and nearly three months of fighting just over the tiny village of Baghouz. SDF officials are talking about the victory, but at the same time concede that there may be, and most likely are, ISIS remnant fighters in the desert.

ISIS spokesman Abu Hassan al-Muhajir has issued an audio recording anticipating the fall of Baghouz, insisting that the “caliphate” is not finished, despite having lost all of their territory. Some US officials are estimated 15,000 to 20,000 armed ISIS fighters could remain in the region.

Trump's Golan remarks only bolster resistance against Israel, supporters: Iran official

US President Donald Trump has only made the resistance front more resolute against the Israeli regime and its supporters following his remarks in recognition of Israel's "sovereignty" over the occupied Golan Heights, says a senior advisor to Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei.

Ali Akbar Velayati, who is also secretary general of the World Assembly of Islamic Awakening, made the remarks in a Sunday statement in response to Trump's announcement.

He emphasized that the recognition of the “tyrannical occupation of the Golan Heights … which is aimed at making that regime feel secure, will undoubtedly add to regional problems and make the resistance front more resolute in fighting the Zionist regime and its supporters.”

UK’s secret war: British commandos wounded in Yemen

A number of elite British commandos have sustained injuries in direct gunfights with Yemeni forces as part of what appears to be a secretive UK military campaign in Yemen, a new report says, adding a major twist to London’s involvement in Saudi Arabia’s deadly war against its impoverished southern neighbor.

The Mail on Sunday said it can reveal that at least five members of the UK’s Special Boat Service (SBS) troops had suffered gunshot injuries in fierce clashes with members of the Houthi Ansarullah movement, who have been repelling the Saudi-led military invasion since March 2015.

The SBS personnel received treatment for leg and arm wounds in Yemen’s northern Sa’ada province, where the report said around 30 elite British forces had been based.

The injured soldiers had been taken back to the UK to recover, the report added.

Malaysian PM Mahathir: Israel ‘a state of robbers’

Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad has dubbed Israel as “a state of robbers”, saying his country enjoys friendly relations with every country in the world except Israel.

“We are not against Jews but we cannot recognize Israel because of its occupation of Palestinian land,” Mahathir said in remarks aired by local broadcasters during his three-day visit to Pakistan.

“You cannot seize others’ lands, and form a state. It’s like a state of robbers,” he added.

His remarks came a day after US President Donald Trump said it was time to recognize Syria's Golan Heights, occupied since 1967, as Israeli territory.

Mueller investigation finds no Trump-Russia conspiracy, stops short of exonerating president on obstruction of justice

The investigation led by Robert Mueller found that neither President Donald Trump nor any of his aides conspired or coordinated with the Russian government’s 2016 election interference, according to a summary of the special counsel’s findings made public Sunday by Attorney General William Barr.

The summary also said that the special counsel’s team lacked sufficient evidence to establish that Trump illegally obstructed justice, but added that Mueller’s team stopped short of exonerating Trump.

“While this report does not conclude that the president committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him,” Barr quoted Mueller as writing.

Barr delivered the summary of the special counsel’s finding to Congress on Sunday afternoon, just days after the conclusion of a sprawling investigation into Russia’s attempts to sabotage the 2016 election and whether Trump or any of his associates conspired with Moscow’s interference.

Crimea: The Geopolitical Jewel Putin Continues to Polish

With all that is happening in the world Crimea has taken a bit of a backseat recently. Yes, the US, EU and Canada just added more sanctions on Russia via the odious Magnitsky legislation but this is inconsequential.

There’s been a flurry of good news coming out of Crimea and the Black Sea recently that bears discussion. Let’s start with the most important. President Vladimir Putin was in Crimea earlier this week to celebrate the fifth anniversary of the peninsula’s reunification with Russia. There he also officially inaugurated two major upgrades to Crimea’s power grid.

Neo-Nazi groups allowed to stay on Facebook because they ‘do not violate community standards’

Neo-Nazi groups have been allowed to remain on Facebook because the social media giant found they did not violate its “community standards”, it has been revealed.

Pages operated by factions of international white supremacist organisations including Combat 18 and the Misanthropic Division were reported, but Facebook refused to remove the content and told researchers to unfollow pages if they found them “offensive”.

A Counter Extremism Project report, seen exclusively by The Independent, showed the same response was received for chapters of Be Active Front USA, a racist skinhead group, and the neo-Nazi British Movement.

Several of the pages unsuccessfully reported included racist and homophobic statements, such as calling non-whites “vermin” and gay people “degenerates”, images of Adolf Hitler and fascist symbols.

Avenatti also is charged in a separate federal case out of Los Angeles, where he is accused of embezzling a client’s money “in order to pay his own expense and debts,” and of “defrauding a bank in Mississippi,” prosecutors said.

Glenn Greenwald: Russia Collusion 'Conspiracy' Was "Saddest Media Spectacle I Have Ever Seen"

Offering one of the most scathing responses to the Mueller report summary released Sunday night, Glenn Greenwald, a Pulitzer Prize winning journalist and founding editor of the Intercept, appeared on Democracy Now! Monday, where he lambasted the mainstream press for helping to perpetuate the "total fraud" that was the Russia collusion narrative.

"This is the saddest media spectacle I have ever seen since I began practicing journalism in 2005 and what makes it even sadder is to watch all the people who invested their journalistic credibility into what proved to be a complete and total fraud and scam continue to try and cling to some vestige of credibility by continuing to spin conspiracy theories that are even more reckless and more unhinged than those we've been subjected to for the past three years."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Glenn, I feel for you; and yes, the American people will not be paying attention to anything the corporate news states any more for quite some time to come.

But by spreading the virus of "Russian Collusion" as a true narrative, that is what these presstitutes and waraspondents truly deserve, and they have brought it on their own heads; but this is absolutely the reality here.

I have a great deal of respect for THE INTERCEPT, and I would think you would feel good about what we do here at WRH, should you happen to visit the site.

UPS To Send Nurses For In-Home Vaccinations

United Parcel Service (UPS) is preparing to test a service which will dispatch nurses to vaccinate adults in their homes, according to Reuters.

While UPS did not disclose which vaccines would be used in the project, vaccine manufacturer Merck & Co told Reuters it was exploring a partnership.

The project, previously unreported, shows how UPS is targeting a larger slice of the $85 billion outsourced healthcare logistics market. Deutsche Post’s DHL Group dominates the market, which is expected to grow to $105 billion by 2021. -Reuters

"Over-the-threshold services is where the world is headed," said UPS global healthcare logistics strategy head, Chris Cassidy - who joined the company last year from GlaxoSmithKline.

‘Zombie deer’ brain disease spreads to 24 US states & Canada… and increasingly threatens HUMANS

An incurable, mad-cow-like brain infection nicknamed “zombie deer disease” that causes deer, elk and moose to behave strangely and aggressively has spread through half the US – and some fear it may soon turn up in humans.

Chronic wasting disease (CWD) renders its victims uncoordinated, confused and aggressive, while also causing them to lose weight and – eventually – their lives, giving rise to the nickname “zombie deer disease.” Sick animals walk in repetitive patterns and lose all fear of humans, developing a vacant stare.

Like mad cow disease, CWD attacks the brain and spinal cord and is believed to be caused by prions, infectious proteins that travel in bodily fluids and remain contagious for years after leaving the body of their host. Also like mad cow disease, in its early days at least, some scientists have scoffed at the notion it can be transmitted to humans. Others see history repeating itself.

‘Attack on sovereignty & territorial integrity’ – Syria reacts to Trump’s Golan Heights move

Calling the decision a "flagrant attack" on Syrian territorial sovereignty, an official from Syria’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs has condemned Donald Trump’s recognition of Israel’s claim to the occupied Golan Heights.

The decision embodies Washington’s support for “Zionist occupation,” the Foreign Ministry told Syrian state media in a statement. It also stressed that Trump’s decision shows extreme contempt for international law, and is a “slap in the face” for the international community which has condemned the occupation of the Golan Heights in the United Nations.

Trump does not have the right or legal capacity to legitimize the occupation of other’s territory, and America’s aggressive policy will leave the region and the world vulnerable to danger.

Breaking: Two holistic doctors gunned down in their home, authorities say they were murdered by an 11-year-old

At around 7:30 a.m. on March 15th, cops responded to a 911 call and found James Eckert, a 48-year-old chiropractor and ultramarathon runner in critical condition, and his wife, 50-year-old Lizette Eckert, also a chiropractor, dead from a gunshot wound. James later died at the hospital. (Autopsies would later reveal that both James and Lizette died of a single gunshot to the head.)

An 11-year-old boy was found after a two-hour manhunt and charged with second-degree murder. Officials have not provided the relationship between the boy and the victims.2

The couple were described as healers by friends; health-conscious chiropractors and runners, they left their practice in Portland, Maine, “to operate a small farm in Alton, where they raised cows, pigs, rabbits and chickens.”1 They were also devoted parents to their 15-year-old daughter and adoptive sons, 11- and 13-year-old brothers. We cannot imagine how their tiny New Hampshire community is dealing with this tragic loss.

Judicial Watch Statement on Mueller Report

The long, national nightmare is over and President Trump has been vindicated. The corruptly-created and constitutionally abusive Mueller investigation failed to find any evidence to support the big lie that the Trump campaign colluded with the Russian government.

We’re pleased that AG Barr rejected Mueller’s attempt to smear President Trump with obstruction of justice innuendo by concluding that no such charges could be credibly sustained. Frankly, Mueller never had a valid basis upon which to investigate President Trump for obstruction of justice.

Let’s be clear, neither Mueller, the Obama FBI, DOJ, CIA, State Department, nor the Deep State ever had a good-faith basis to pursue President Trump on Russia collusion. Russia collusion wasn’t just a hoax, it is a criminal abuse, which is why Judicial Watch has fought and will continue to fight for Russiagate documents in federal court.

America Gets yet Another Israel Lobby Group

AIPAC-connected officials are about to launch yet another pro-Israel political action committee: “Pro-Israel America.” (AIPAC is the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, rated by Fortune Magazine as one of the most powerful lobbying organizations in the U.S.)

While the Israel lobby, which consists of hundreds of organizations, is known for billionaire donors such as Sheldon Adelson, Haim Saban, Norman Braman, Paul Singer and others, Pro-Israel America (PIA) will be specifically targeting smaller donors.

Jewish Currents reports: “The launch of Pro-Israel America marks a new phase of activism for the Israel lobby as it aims to remake itself for a new era in which progressive politicians have raised huge sums from small-dollar donors.”

NO Russian Collusion. Mueller knew this from the beginning. That is why he is now hanging his head low. EMBARRASSMENT. We now need to prosecute all those who manufactured the phony Russian Dossier. A long list. LET'S GET STARTED. If we allow this to go unpunished, we we will be sending a message that it's OK to drag someone's name through the mud, based on lies. EVIDENCE is essential in conducting an investigation. Donald Trump's 4th Amendment rights were violated. There was absolutely NO evidence of a crime committed, therefore this investigation was completely illegal. This investigation took place on hunches, and by a handful of people who had an agenda to oust Donald Trump, in the event he was elected President of the United States. It's time to prosecute the true conspirators. Let's get rolling on this . No leniency.

Boeing Shares Dip As Airbus Seals Massive Order From China

The last few days have seen Boeing shares roller-coaster on market swings and idiosyncratic headlines (as Garuda started the worrying trend of canceling airplane orders). Today, Boeing shares slipped after Bloomberg reported that Airbus has secured a long-awaited aircraft order from China.

The confirmation reportedly occurred during a state visit by Xi Jinping to the French capital, according to a person with knowledge of the matter.

The deal is due to be announced as soon as Monday afternoon in Paris, said the person, who asked not to be identified discussing non-public information.

While no details were immediately available of the deal, Bloomberg reports that the deal was initially touted more than one year ago by the French government as being valued at as much as $18 billion.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Aerobus planes have not been crashing recently; and in their desire to get their newest airplanes up and running, Boeing did not do the due diligence with the inspections, which would have delayed the process, but would have meant the the planes were air-worthy.

Unfortunately, Boeing brought this upon themselves, and heaven only knows if they will be able to come out of this one financially in tact; were I a betting woman, I wouldn't bet that this will happen

I can hear the SMACK! of class-action lawsuits, against both the plane manufacturer, and the two companies which flew the aircraft, without insuring that training on this was mandatory, and against Boeing for signing off on a plane which was defective in its manufacturing.

Pompeo Demands Moscow "Cease Unconstructive Behavior" In Venezuela 

As we predicted a number of times before, a proxy war between Russia and the United States appears now heating up in Venezuela — this after over the weekend Russia sent a military transport plane filled with Russian troops commanded by First Deputy Commander-in-Chief of the Land Forces of Russia Gen. Vasily Tonkoshkurov, which landed in Caracas Saturday. We also reported the major development this morning that new satellite images reveal a major deployment of S-300 air defense missile systems to a key airbase south of Caracas.

Russia's highly visible deployment of a small troop contingency along with a reported 35 tons of cargo has resulted in a direct and firm response from Washington as on Monday morning the US Secretary of State called on Russia to “cease its unconstructive behavior”.

According to Reuters Pompeo conveyed the message directly via a phone call with his Russian counterpart Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mikey, Mikey, MIKEY!!

Wake up and smell those tons of reserve heavy crude being rudely pulled away from the US by way of a Russian "military presence" in Venezuela, invited by its LEGITIMATE LEADERSHIP, UNDER MADURO.

And if you thought about pro-actively sending US troops to fend off Russian troops here, in the immortal words of my late Grandmother, "The horse is already out of the barn, which is what she would say if a situation was already out of control, and couldn't be fixed.

If you were even thinking/fantasising about a decap strike on Caracas, it is too bloody late now.

So what are you going to do now, just sit there and whine about missed opportunities, because you waited too long to do them?!?

And your telling Lavrov (who I consider one of the adults in the room in geopolitics) that "... the United States and regional countries will not stand idly by as Russia exacerbates tensions in Venezuela."

Was that ever a rich "pot...kettle...black" moment for you, considering all that the US has done to instigate regime change in this country; and sir, your options just got royally minimized here.

It is almost painful to see how many chess moves ahead Russia's President Putin is, ahead of US foreign policy.

Father Of Sandy Hook Victim Dies By Apparent Suicide At Newtown Community Center

The father of one of the children killed in the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting died by apparent suicide Monday morning at a community center building in Newtown, Connecticut, police said.

Jeremy Richman, 49 ? father of Avielle, a 6-year-old who was among 20 small children killed in the mass shooting ? was found unresponsive at Edmond Town Hall around 7 a.m. Monday. Richman has an office at the building, and he founded the Avielle Foundation there in honor of his daughter.

“This is a heart breaking event for the Richman family and the Newtown Community as a whole,” Newtown Police Lt. Aaron Bahamonde wrote in a Facebook post?. “The police department’s prayers are with the Richman family right now, and we ask that the family be given privacy in this most difficult time.”

Connecticut’s Office of the Chief Medical Examiner told HuffPost it would not release any details related to Richman’s death until Tuesday afternoon.

ZIONIST HATRED IN THE WASHINGTON POST

Opening the Washington Post today, we were aghast.

Omar NEVER said – were splattered next to her face, leaving readers to assume it was a quote.

The ad was produced and purchased by the notorious Rabbi Shmuley, a hate-monger whose agenda is well-known: to demand U.S. compliance with Israel’s status quo of occupation and apartheid. Why is the Washington Post allowing Shmuley to purchase such an outrageous ad inciting hatred against the first black, Muslim hijab-wearing member of Congress? Contact the Washington Post now.

Macron Hopes Old Woman Injured in Police Charge Gains ‘Wisdom’, ‘Fragile’ People Should Avoid Prohibited Areas

French President Emmanuel Macron has told a newspaper he hopes a 73-year old Yellow Vest protester who suffered serious head injuries after being charged by police in Nice, gains “wisdom” over the incident.

Anti-globalisation activist Genevieve Legay remains in hospital Monday after police advanced aggressively on people defying a protest ban Saturday.

An Associated Press reporter saw Legay, who was waving a rainbow flag marked “Peace”, fall to the pavement, blood spilling from her head.

In an interview published in Nice Matin on Monday, Macron suggested Legay didn’t behave “responsibly,” saying that “fragile” people shouldn’t attend “places that are defined as prohibited.”

Vietnam’s Struggle to Overcome the Legacy of US Bombs

The recent Hanoi summit attended by US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un thrust Vietnam into the global spotlight; a rare moment of publicity in the modern era for a country which dominated the world’s attention through the unfolding horrors of war in the 1960s and 1970s.

Yet the hosts were left disappointed when the summit collapsed, after failed talks on de-nuclearization prompted the US delegation to depart early for Washington. Five decades earlier the US had been in no rush to leave despite a similar sense of impending mission failure, instead sending thousands more troops and sticking around to bomb Vietnam for eight years from 1965-1973. While the summit leaves no lasting impression, the legacy of unexploded bombs and toxic contamination from the war remains.

HOW SCIENTISTS ENGINEER FOODS TO MAKE THEM DANGEROUSLY ADDICTIVE

It’s no secret that the standard American diet is having a terrible effect on human health. What’s is a secret, though, is how the food industry uses science and psychology to create processed food products that are devoid of nutrition, full of chemical additives and colorings, and incredibly addictive.

In fact, the science of how food companies get customers physically, mentally and emotionally hooked on their products reads like a good conspiracy theory. Major food manufacturers know good and well that repeat customers can be made by tricking the mind and body and overriding our natural tendency to seek out healthy, satisfying foods.

Israel retaliates against Gaza claiming barrage of ‘300 explosives’ targeted IDF troops (VIDEOS)

The Israeli Air Force has struck at least two ‘Hamas outposts’ in Gaza in retaliation for what the IDF claimed was an overnight barrage of some ‘300 explosives’ thrown across the border fence at Israeli troops.

The strike came in response to ongoing border disturbances by Hamas’ so-called “night-time unit” which staged a massive demonstration along the Gazan border with Israel on Saturday night, burning tires, throwing homemade explosive devices, and launching incendiary balloons at southern Israel.

“Our stance is clear, either [Israel] lifts the blockade [on Gaza] or [Israeli] residents of border communities evacuate,” the statement by the unit read, as its operatives vowed to continue their unrest throughout next week between the hours of 7pm until the first light of dawn.

Israeli Army Braces for Violence in Golan Heights in Wake of Trump's Move

This comes a day after the Syrian Foreign Ministry condemned US President Trump’s recent comments on the Golan Heights as “irresponsible”, adding that the Syrian people plan to recover the area through “all available means”.

The Israel Defence Forces (IDF) and police are bracing themselves for possible violent protests near the Israeli-Syrian border following US President Donald Trump’s move to recognise the Jewish state’s sovereignty over the Golan Heights.

“We are preparing for the possibility of tension in the northern Golan Heights,” the IDF said in a statement without elaborating.

Boeing’s Cost-Cutting Addiction Squeezed Every Dollar Out 737 Until Disaster Struck

The calamity of two successive crashes of Boeing’s latest jet, the 737 MAX-8 has left the company facing the most serious scrutiny it has ever faced, including a potential criminal investigation by the Department of Transportation.

The crashes killed 346 people, men women and children, and appear to have had a common cause: a rogue control system that took over from the pilots and sent the airplanes into a terrifying death dive.

US NAVY TO IMPROVE ITS VERSATILE SM-6 MISSILE WITH LONGER RANGE AND HIGHER SPEED

The US Navy is to boost its versatile SM-6 missile with longer range and higher speed, the Drive reported.

The SM-6 is a good example of a versatile weapon, which also proved that simply an overhaul of an existing system can achieve some significant results.

“The missile can shoot down air-breathing threats like aircraft and cruise missiles, it can swat incoming ballistic missiles in the terminal phases of flight, it can attack sea targets, and it even has a latent land attack potential. It is also network enabled and can engage targets well beyond the sensor reach of its launch platform using telemetry data-linked from a third-party platform, like a jet fighter. It does all this over long ranges, reaching out over 150 miles from its vertical launch cell aboard American destroyers and cruisers. Now, according to 2020 budget request documents, this versatile missile is set to get upsized for considerably more range and speed, and that is a very big deal.”

Joy Reid Thinks Trump's Criticism of Media Is a 'Violation of First Amendment'

How can I impeach thee? Let me count the ways....

Still reeling from the pain of the Mueller report's failure to deliver any additional indictments, Joy Reid this morning fantasized a list of possibly impeachable offenses.

The most hilarious, reflecting Reid's unfamiliarity with the Bill of Rights, was her claim that Trump's "attacking the media" could be grounds for impeachment. Reid said that while the criticism isn't a crime, "it's a violation of the First Amendment in a lot of ways."

'Israel has no better ally in the world than the US'

Acting Foreign Minister Yisrael Katz spoke at the AIPAC Policy Conference being held in Washington, DC.

Katz began by thanking President Donald Trump for his recent announcement recognizing Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights.

“This step is a strong response to Iran and its proxy Hezbollah, which attempt to attack Israel from Syria, and a clear message to [Syrian President Bashar] Assad who gives shelter to them,” he added.

Katz hailed the US-Israel relationship, saying, “Israel has no better ally in the world than the United States of America, and the US has no better friend than Israel.”

“We thank the US for its historic support of Israel. Support for Israel has always been bi-partisan, and must remain bi-partisan!” he continued.

'Iran deal does not block Iran’s path to nuclear weapons'

Israel’s Ambassador to the US, Ron Dermer, spoke on Sunday at the AIPAC Policy Conference.

He began by thanking President Donald Trump for recognizing Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights.

“It’s so significant in historical terms because 52 years ago we acquired that territory in a defensive war. But it’s one thing to achieve a military victory and it’s another thing to achieve a diplomatic victory,” said Dermer, who added that America's recognition of the Golan Heights will be made official on Monday.

Asked by i24NEWS anchor Michelle Makori what Israel is looking to achieve in Syria, the Ambassador replied, “We want Iran out.”

Dershowitz: This Is a ‘Very, Very Bad Day for CNN’ — ‘They Should Be Hanging Their Head in Shame’

“This is a good day for the president,” Dershowitz said. “It’s a very, very bad day for CNN. I have to tell you, they should be hanging their head in shame when you think about how many people went out on a limb and predicted there would be indictments for obstruction. There would be indictments for collusion. There would be indictments for this and for that. They made it seem like it was an open-and-shut case. And they misinformed the American public. They have to have some public accountability when you say things that turn out not to be true.”

“Look, I’ve been vindicated,” he added. “I’ve been saying this from day one and have been criticized and condemned for simply doing a legal analysis that I think any reasonable, objective non-partisan lawyer would have done, would have come to the same conclusion I would have came to and essentially come to the conclusion that was come to today by the attorney general.”

Russian plane in Venezuela amid reports of Russian military arrival

A cargo plane bearing the Russian flag was spotted by AFP at the main airport in Venezuela Sunday amid reports that Moscow has dispatched troops and a senior military official to the country.

The aircraft was seen at Maiquetia airport outside Caracas guarded by a contingent of Venezuelan National Guardsmen.

Javier Mayorca, an independent journalist, reported on his Twitter account the arrival of two Russian panes — an Antonov-124 cargo plane and a smaller jet — late Saturday at the airport.

He said around 100 Russian soldiers led by General Vasily Tonkoshkurov, head of the Mobilization Directorate of Russia’s armed forces, disembarked along with about 35 tons of equipment.

A picture of a Russian flagged aircraft posted on social media showed men in uniform clustered around it on the tarmac.

There was no confirmation from Venezuelan authorities, and the Russian embassy in Caracas declined to comment to AFP on the report, which was widely carried by Venezuelan media.

Eduardo Bolsonaro: Force Will Be Needed in Venezuela Because ‘Maduro Is a Criminal’

Brazilian congressman Eduardo Bolsonaro, the son of the nation’s president Jair Bolsonaro, said Friday that some sort of force would be necessary to oust the reigning Venezuela dictator Nicolás Maduro from office.
Mr. Bolsonaro said that “all options on the table,” including the military option, to resolve the crisis in Venezuela, while reiterating his conviction that “Maduro is a criminal.”

Brazil was one of the first countries to declare the government of Nicolás Maduro “illegitimate” after the presidential elections in Venezuela last May 20, while affirming its support for the Venezuelan Parliament.

“No one wants a war, war is bad, there are many lives lost, there are collateral consequences, but Maduro is not going to relinquish power peacefully. In some way it will be necessary to use force, because Maduro is a criminal,” Bolsonaro said.

Pollak: AIPAC’s Last Resort Is to Support Trump’s Middle East Peace Plan

The American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) begins its annual policy conference Sunday in unusual circumstances.
First, the organization has been the target of antisemitic attacks by a member of Congress, Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN). Second, it is being boycotted by left-wing groups that are claiming credit for persuading Democratic presidential candidates to avoid the conference (though few attend in non-election years anyway).

Saikat Chakrabarti, the chief of staff and political strategist for “phenom” Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), put the two together late last week and congratulated Omar, effectively, for using antisemitic rhetoric to accomplish the boycott. The fact that Democrats celebrate such tactics, rather than punishing them, is a new and dangerous watershed in American politics. And it is a sign that AIPAC’s traditional façade of bipartisanship is badly damaged.

JUDICIAL WATCH UNCOVERS 756 PAGES OF NEW HILLARY EMAILS THAT SHE TRIED TO DESTROY, SEVERAL WERE CLASSIFIED

Judicial Watch today announced it received 756 pages of newly uncovered emails that were among the materials former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton tried to delete or destroy, several of which were classified and were transmitted over her unsecure, non-“state.gov” email system.

Hillary Clinton repeatedly stated that the 55,000 pages of documents she turned over to the State Department in December 2014 included all of her work-related emails. In response to a court order in another Judicial Watch case, she declared under penalty of perjury in 2015 that she had “directed that all my emails on clintonemail.com in my custody that were or are potentially federal records be provided to the Department of State, and on information and belief, this has been done.”

The Deadly Truth about South Africa

The corruption in South Africa is so bad, it’s like a noxious fog that has settled on a once peaceful, prosperous, and prejudiced nation. South African’s President Cyril Ramaphosa is being pilloried, pulled, and pushed from many sides, and many of the political players are more radical than he. He is busy trying to stay in power and get reelected later this year, but he has to deal with many warring factions inside and outside the African National Congress (ANC), plus the murder for hire of wayward members and multiple acts of sabotage in many major cities. Everyone seems to carry guns or has bodyguards even low-level provincial (state) leaders.

The ANC no longer stands for African National Congress but for Accumulation, Nepotism, and Cronyism. Corruption is one of the most used words by South Africans. Of course, this does not surprise anyone since one-party rule always results in cronyism, chaos, and corruption.

Trump’s Stance on the Golan will allow Israel to Operate with Impunity Elsewhere

When President Donald Trump moved the US embassy to occupied Jerusalem last year, effectively sabotaging any hope of establishing a viable Palestinian state, he tore up the international rulebook.

Last week, he trampled all over its remaining tattered pages. He did so, of course, via Twitter.

Referring to a large piece of territory Israel seized from Syria in 1967, Mr Trump wrote: “After 52 years it is time for the United States to fully recognize Israel’s Sovereignty over the Golan Heights, which is of critical strategic and security importance to the State of Israel and Regional Stability.”

Israel expelled 130,000 Syrians from the Golan Heights in 1967, under cover of the Six Day War, and then annexed the territory 14 years later – in violation of international law. A small population of Syrian Druze are the only survivors of that ethnic cleansing operation.

'I take good care of them!' Levi's CEO insists people should NEVER put their jeans in the washer

Levi's CEO has insisted people should never machine wash their jeans to prevent wearing down the material and admitted even his favorite jeans of 10 years have never been placed in the washer.

Chip Bergh, 61, first made headlines in 2014 when he confessed people should never wash their jeans due to the fading and dullness it can cause on the material.

When speaking to CNN this week, the CEO reaffirmed his earlier statements while opening up about how his 10-year-old favorite pair still looks great despite never going through a wash cycle.

'I almost wore my 10-year-old 501s, which were the jeans that I wore when I made that statement [of never washing jeans],' Chip told CNN while at Wall Street in New York City to celebrate his company going public on Thursday.

CBP Detains 9-Year-Old US Citizen For 36 Hours, Accuses Her 14-Year-Old Brother Of Sex Trafficking

Today's example of the government's ugliness comes to us courtesy of Customs and Border Protection. There's a crisis at the border if the latest national emergency is to be believed (it isn't), and the only way to stop it is to ramp up enforcement. If this means tossing a 9-year-old American citizen in the clink, so be it.

A mother and her 9-year-old daughter were separated for 36 hours after the child fell into U.S. Customs and Border Protection custody because agents at the border didn't believe she was who she claimed to be, a mother says.

This debacle started the way something like this usually does: with US citizens engaged in activity they engage in every day. In this case, mother Thelma Galaxia's children were being driven from Tijuana to the border crossing in order to attend school in San Ysidro, California. This was the normal state of affairs for her 9-year-old daughter and 14-year-old son.

Dashcam Video Shows Illinois Cop Ramming SUV into Unsuspecting Teenage Girl

A video showing an Illinois cop deliberately ramming into the car of a 17-year-old girl in a high school parking lot contradicts the initial police narrative that the girl pulled in front of the cop.

The video shows Centralia police officer William White accelerating his patrol SUV before t-boning her car, leaving her with a broken collarbone.

Judging by the video, the deputy had probable cause the person in the white car was only seconds away from committing a mass murder at the high school.

That is, if you believe the cop was acting by the book.

Executive Order on Improving Free Inquiry, Transparency, and Accountability at Colleges and Universities

By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, it is hereby ordered as follows:

Section 1. Purpose. The purpose of this order is to enhance the quality of postsecondary education by making it more affordable, more transparent, and more accountable. Institutions of higher education (institutions) should be accountable both for student outcomes and for student life on campus.

In particular, my Administration seeks to promote free and open debate on college and university campuses. Free inquiry is an essential feature of our Nation’s democracy, and it promotes learning, scientific discovery, and economic prosperity. We must encourage institutions to appropriately account for this bedrock principle in their administration of student life and to avoid creating environments that stifle competing perspectives, thereby potentially impeding beneficial research and undermining learning.

SYRIAN WAR REPORT – MARCH 25, 2019: US DECLARED 15TH VICTORY OVER ISIS SINCE DECEMBER

On March 23, the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) released a statement stressing that ISIS had been fully defeated in Syria, including the area of the Euphrates Valley. The SDF operation against ISIS in the Euphrates Valley lasted for over six months. In the course of the battle, thousands of ISIS fighters were killed or surrendered to US-backed forces.

At the same time, according to the SDF, about 11,000 of its members had been killed since the start of its campaign against ISIS a few years ago. The SDF said that during the same period it captured 52,000km2 and rescued nearly “5,000,000 people”.

Additionally, the US-backed group once again demanded the Damascus government to recognize its authority over the captured part of northeastern Syria. This signals that the SDF-Damascus negotiations have not led to notable progress so far.
