Trump Can Reverse Obama's New Sanctions On Russia

President-elect Donald Trump could reverse President Barack Obama’s sweeping new sanctions against Moscow that included the expulsion of 35 Russian diplomats, officials say.

“If a future president decided he wanted to allow in a large tranche of Russian intelligence agents, presumably a future president could do that,” a senior Obama administration official said during a press call on Thursday.

Beware! A new iMessage prank text can CRASH your phone: Here's how to fix it

A bug found in Apple's iOS is causing the iMessage app to crash after receiving a malicious text.

The prank message contains an attachment to a large file known as a vCard.

This is a type of virtual business card that lets you share contacts on your phone.

Because iMessage can't handle the file size and complexity of the vCard, it freezes completely - and a reboot won't fix the problem.

Instead, when victims who do a hard reset are greeted with a blank screen.

The new exploit was found by hacker vincedes3 who has also provided a fix.

The Coming Assault On Social Security

The first assault of the new Trump administration and Republican Congress upon Social Security has been launched. It comes in the form of release of a new report by the Congressional Budget Office, which of course these days is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Republican Congressional Caucus.

Webmaster addition: This article is trying to lay the blame for the collapse of Social Security on the GOP, but the reality is that it was a Democrat, President Bill Clinton, who plundered the Social Security fund to create his magic Federal Budget Surplus, leaving Social Security unable to pay retirement benefits to working Americans whose retirement was effectively embezzled by Clinton.

‘White House sanctioning own children now?’ Moscow blasts CNN's ‘false’ US school closure report

The CNN is spreading ‘false information’ by reporting that Russia closed the Anglo-American School of Moscow in retaliation to a new set of US sanctions, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said.
“It’s a lie. It appears the White House has completely lost its mind and is now coming up with sanctions against their own children,” Zakharova commented on the report on her Facebook page.

“The CNN broadcaster and other Western media have again distributed false information citing official US sources,” the spokeswoman added.

The Anglo-American School of Moscow has also denied media speculation, with director Ian Forster writing on Facebook that the “school is planning to open as scheduled following the New Year’s break.”

No More Holiday Gifts for Repressive Regimes

While the world has been transfixed on the epic tragedy in Syria, another tragedy – a hidden one – has been consuming the children of Yemen.

Battered by the twin evils of war and hunger, every 10 minutes a child in Yemen dies from malnutrition, diarrhea, or respiratory-tract infections, UNICEF reports. And without immediate medical attention, over 400,000 kids suffering from severe acute malnutrition could die, too.

Why are so many of Yemen’s children going hungry and dying?

Since 2014, Yemen has been wracked by a civil war – a war that’s been exacerbated by intervention from Saudi Arabia, a U.S. ally. Since 2015, the Saudis have been pounding this nation, the poorest in the Middle East, with cluster bombs and explosives.

And the US has been helping, selling the Saudis advanced weapons and providing intelligence and logistical support.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I didn't think, when I was a kid growing up, that I would ever consider the government of my country complicit in war crimes; unfortunately, it is a well-documented reality right now. And the following images demonstrate, very clearly, what daily life is like in Yemen these days: (warning: very graphic)

New Communist Party boss for Xinjiang ‘faces challenges’ in easing unrest

The latest eruption of violence in Xinjiang, which authorities say claimed five lives, comes just months after Chen Quanguo stepped into the role as Communist Party chief for the troubled region.

Chen earned a reputation as a hardliner in his previous job overseeing Tibet, and although there is no indication the attack is linked with the new administration, observers warn the region could face greater uncertainties under the policies that Chen adopts.

Karakax’s population is 97 per cent made up of Uygurs, a mostly Muslim ethnic minority who, like some Tibetans, chafe at Beijing’s rule and the increasing numbers of Han Chinese moving to their homelands.

Shortly after Chen’s arrival, the government started to beef up its police presence significantly, building more than 900 police booths in the region’s capital Urumqi. Local residents have also been required to hand over their passports to police.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am saddened by the deaths and woundings of innocents here; that being said, however,I would strongly suggest that more massive suppression here will most likely wind up creating even more unrest.

The late President Kennedy said it best: "When peaceful revolution is impossible, violent revolution becomes inevitable."

There was an article, posted on HuffPo in 2014, which sheds some light on what is happening here:

Until recently, Xinjiang’s population was mostly Uighur. But in recent years, Chinese Han have moved there in increasing numbers, drawn by Beijing’s massive investments in the area. Both groups now make up about 40 percent of the region’s population. In Urumqi, the state capital, Han Chinese now make up 75 percent of residents.

Uighurs complain that while Beijing has heavily invested in Xinjiang, the investment mostly benefits the Han Chinese

Uighurs feel discriminated against when it comes to housing and employment. They don’t have easy access to the region’s profitable gas and oil industry, and can’t apply for many of the available government jobs. The separatist struggle heated up in 2009, when clashes between Uighurs and Chinese Han in Urumqi claimed dozens of lives. As China dramatically escalated its crackdown in the wake of the riots, the separatists’ actions became increasingly brutal, setting in motion a vicious cycle of violence.

If these issues are not intelligently and sensitively addressed by Beijing, we may well be looking at a powderkeg which will continue to explode, episodically, and infused with the horrific energy of the most extreme, bloodthirsty Jihad possible against the Han Chinese in Xinjiang.

10 Things Palestinians Can’t Do Because Of The Israeli Occupation

The Israeli government and some U.S. politicians are attacking the Obama administration for permitting a recent U.N. Security Council resolution that condemns Israeli settlements in the occupied Palestinian territories. Secretary of State John Kerry faced further ire on Wednesday after saying the settlements threaten prospects for peace in the region.

Yet part of the reason the administration decided to speak out forcefully about the settlements is because they are such a key feature of Israel’s occupation ? now approaching its 50th year. The occupation affects almost every aspect of Palestinians’ lives in the West Bank, the Gaza Strip and East Jerusalem.

VETERAN DIES WITH MAGGOTS IN WOUNDS, 4 VA STAFF MEMBERS RESIGN IMMEDIATELY AFTERWARDS

A veteran died after live maggots were found in his infected wounds.

A 73-year-old veteran, Owen Reese Peterson, died after being treated at a veterans’ hospital in rural Oklahoma for several weeks. The Talihina Oklahoma Department of Veterans Affairs confirmed that Peterson had live maggots in his wounds prior to his death in October.

The director of the Department, Myles Deering, confirmed this but also stated that Peterson’s death was not related to the maggots and that he instead died of sepsis.

Peterson entered the facility with an infection that needed serious treatment and wound up with sepsis, a potentially life-threatening complication with an infection. Raymie Parker, who was Peterson’s son, told Tulsa World,

“During the 21 days I was there… I pled with the medical staff, the senior medical staff, to increase his meds so his bandages could be changed. I was met with a stonewall for much of that time.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The entire staff of this facility should be fired, and those responsible for this man's care charged with manslaughter.

The rest of the patients should be transferred to other VA facilities, where they might get some semblance of reasonable care.

But for this to be happening to even one of our Vets is utterly inexcusable.

Although I hate, and abhor, the wars which cause our Vets injury; that having been said, I firmly believe that they should be afforded the same level of care that Dick Cheney gets: they have earned it.

OBAMA ADMINISTRATION LOOKING TO EXPAND DEFINITION OF 'CRITICAL INFRASTRUCTURE' TO HIT BACK AT RUSSIANS

One of the ridiculous parts of all of the discussions around "cybersecurity" concerns what should be considered "critical infrastructure." That's because, thanks to various executive orders, what the President declares as "critical infrastructure" leads to different cybersecurity requirements. There have been concerns that this will result in broadly classifying the internet as "critical infrastructure" in a manner that will lead to easier surveillance. But, as we noted nearly a decade ago, broadly classifying the internet as critical infrastructure would be silly, when the use of that designation should be narrowly focused on things like voting and banking (not to mention things like energy grids and water supplies).

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Computers can be hacked; this is why we need to go back to the plain, simple paper ballots.

And as to the claims that Russia allegedly "hacked the 2016 elections"; this is just one big, fat, hairy bunch of codswallop.

And as to the FBI and DHS reports on the alleged "Russian hacking" of elections:
FBI, DHS RUSSIA REPORT BEGINS WITH GIANT DISCLAIMER 'PROVIDING NO WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND'

Putin is just biding his time until Trump is inaugurated; at that point, I would almost be willing to bet that relations between Russia and the US are going to warm dramatically.

HOMELAND BORDER EMPLOYEES TOOK MILLIONS IN BRIBES TO ALLOW MASSIVE SECRET INFLUX OF ILLEGAL DRUGS AND IMMIGRANTS

In 2012, Joohoon David Lee, a federal Homeland Security agent in Los Angeles, was assigned to investigate the case of a Korean businessman accused of sex trafficking.

Instead of carrying out a thorough inquiry, Lee solicited and received about $13,000 in bribes and other gifts from the businessman and his relatives in return for making the “immigration issue go away,” court records show.

Lee, an agent with Homeland Security Investigations at Immigration and Customs Enforcement, filed a report saying: “Subject was suspected of human trafficking. No evidence found and victim statement contradicts. Case closed. No further action required.”

But after another agent alerted internal investigators about Lee’s interference in another case, his record was examined and he was charged with bribery. He pleaded guilty in July and was sentenced to 10 months in prison.

An integrated multi-omics analysis of the NK603 Roundup-tolerant GM maize reveals metabolism disturbances caused by the transformation process

Glyphosate tolerant genetically modified (GM) maize NK603 was assessed as ‘substantially equivalent’ to its isogenic counterpart by a nutrient composition analysis in order to be granted market approval. We have applied contemporary in depth molecular profiling methods of NK603 maize kernels (sprayed or unsprayed with Roundup) and the isogenic corn to reassess its substantial equivalence status. Proteome profiles of the maize kernels revealed alterations in the levels of enzymes of glycolysis and TCA cycle pathways, which were reflective of an imbalance in energy metabolism. Changes in proteins and metabolites of glutathione metabolism were indicative of increased oxidative stress.

Webmaster's Commentary:

"Some of them seem largely symbolic. The GRU [Russia's Foreign Intelligence Service] doesn't really travel here - doesn't keep its assets here. There's no indication these allies will follow suit. I will tell you that even those who are sympathetic to President Obama on most issues are saying that part of the reason he did this today was to quote 'box in' President-elect Trump," she continued. "That would be very unfortunate if politics were the motivating factor here. We can't help but think that's often true," she went on. "That is not the way that peaceful exchanges work in this democracy."

In his opinion, "political losers are trying to slam the door on their way out showing the world their hysteric and evil nature and violating diplomatic rules and common sense." According to Zheleznyak, "unfortunately, Obama has failed to control his feelings and leave office with dignity, thus totally ruining his reputation and making it hit bottom.

Were RT And Drudge Taken Down So the Government Could Control the Anti-Russia Narrative?

Just hours after announcing the government intended to punish Russia for "interfering in the presidential election," Drudge Report, a massive news aggregator with over 3 million page views per day, was hit by a massive DDoS attack. The attack occurred just minutes after people started reporting that the Russian state-run news network RT was "unavailable" in parts of the United States.

It doesn't stretch the imagination too considerably to believe that both RT and Drudge being simultaneously taken down was linked to Obama's announcement just hours earlier. The US government has been trying in vain to regain control of the official narrative, but citizen journalists, independent media, and sources from outside the country have been strong influences ever since the MSM was completely discredited as a mouthpiece during the election.

ACLU & CAIR Use Cville Spokesman to Claim War on Iraq Was for Bill of Rights

Are you old enough to remember when liberal groups openly admitted that the war on Iraq was illegal and fraudulent, based on oil and profit and sadism?

Well, can you recall when the proponents of the war claimed it was a defense against nonexistent ties to terrorists and nonexistent weapons?

Even if you've wiped those memories, let me assure you, NOBODY ever claimed that attacking and destroying Iraq was necessary to protect civil liberties in the United States (which have been seriously eroded during the course of the war).

Yet, in recent months the generic defense of murdering large numbers of people far away has taken over as the explanation for the war on Iraq.

The ACLU on Friday used the voice of my fellow Charlottesvillian Khizr Khan to claim that attacking Iraq was done "in defense of our country's ideals."

'No one shot at evacuees' Filmmaker blasts claims Aleppo liberation was bloodbath

THE Syrian army did not break the ceasefire in Aleppo by shooting at rebel forces, a filmmaker who witnessed the evacuation has said.

Hitting back at claims the government forces had created a bloodbath as thousands of civilians fled the city earlier in December, Carla Ortiz insisted the military had been handing out food to the refugees.

The filmmaker from Boliva said: “Many have asked me to show proof that people and children were not shot at on the streets while the evacuation took place as some media reported.

“So, this is what I saw: civilians evacuated on foot from the east, then transported in buses to the shelters. I am sorry, but there was absolutely no mass shooting on the evacuation.”

FIFTH ANNIVERSARY OF NDAA “INDEFINITE DETENTION”

On December 31, 2011, New Year’s Eve, President Barack Obama signed into law the most constitutionally damaging law in American history, the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012.

This New Year’s Eve we note its 5th Anniversary. Previous annual appropriations bills funding national defense were mostly procedural but it was the addition of two sections, buried deep within the over 600 page document, that potentially gutted the Bill of Rights for American citizens thought by the President to be assisting the enemy, that so upset constitutionalists and libertarians.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am a Christian pacifist activist, who consistently exhorts her government to find other means than war through which to resolve its geopolitical issues.

I work as hard as I can to be fact-centric when I am posting to the WRH website; I never advocate violence.

Does all of that make me, a born-American citizen, an "enemy of the state"?!?

Unfortunately, the short answer, at this point in 21st century America, is yes.

A police officer could, under the NDAA, arrest me, and have me spend the rest of my life in indefinite detention with no due process whatsoever.

Welcome to Amerika, my friends; your papers, please!!

'It's a FALLACY' John McAfee shuts down 'manipulative' FBI claims of Russian hacking

Speaking to host Larry King on RT America, he said any number of agencies could have been behind any interference.

“When the FBI or when any other agency says the Russians did it or the Chinese did something or the Iranians did something – that's a fallacy,” said McAfee.

“Any hacker capable of breaking into something is extraordinarily capable of hiding their tracks. If I were the Chinese and I wanted to make it look like the Russians did it I would use Russian language within the code.

“I would use Russian techniques of breaking into organisations so there is simply no way to assign a source for any attack – this is a fallacy.”

He argued the report was part of a ploy to “manipulate our opinions”.

BEWARE - From today, the Government is RECORDING everywhere you click online

December 30th marks the date that the Investigatory Powers Act, also known as the 'Snooper's Charter' officially comes into force, allowing the government to collect data on anyone.

The government says that the new laws will primarily be used to combat serious crimes such as terrorism, but campaigners have warned that it could lead to innocent people being convicted of offences they didn't commit.

The new legislation, described as "world-leading" by home secretary Amber Rudd, will primarily be used to carry out bulk email surveillance, as authorities look to monitor communications between suspects.

However it could also be used to monitor other personal information, including phone records and web browsing history, with web and phone companies required to store this information for 12 months.

The companies would also need to be able to provide police, security services and official agencies with access to this data whenever required.

MILLIONS OF BEES DEAD AFTER SOUTH CAROLINA SPRAYS FOR ZIKA MOSQUITOES

South Carolina honey bees have begun to die in massive numbers. Death of the areas bees has come suddenly to Dorchester County, S.C. Stressed insects tried to flee their nests, only to surrender in little clumps at the hive entrances. Dead worker bees littering the farms suggested that 'colony collapse disorder' was not the culprit.

In colony collapse disorder, workers vanish as though raptured, leaving a living queen and young bees behind. Instead, the dead heaps in S.C signal a more devastating killer. The pattern matches acute pesticide poisoning. By one estimate, at a single Bee Farm in Summerville, 46 hives died on the spot, totaling around 2.5 million bees.

Walking through the farm, one Summerville woman stated it was “like visiting a cemetery, pure sadness.”

A Clemson University scientist collected soil samples from Flowertown on Tuesday, according to WCBD-TV.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It has been known, for quite some time, that Naled kills bees. As reported in September of this year, at the miamiherald.com:

Keys bees suffer from pesticide used to kill Zika mosquitoes

I think the bee-keepers in Dorchester County have a very strong justification to file a class action lawsuit against the country; county officials knew, or should have known, that this is a documented effect of using this product, and should be held liable.

“GUILTY, BUT NOT PUNISHED”: ANOTHER BANKING CRIMINAL LET OFF THE HOOK

It is a verdict which we see over and over when it comes to the crimes of the Big Banks, the central banks, and their minions. These felons are caught committing serious offenses, again and again, yet receive either no punishment, or at worst some token slap on the wrist.

The banking felon to escape punishment this time is IMF criminal, Christine LaGarde . LaGarde’s criminal conviction came while she was still France’s Finance Minister. It involved a $400 million government pay-out authorized by LaGarde, against the advice of several other Finance Ministry officials, to “French tycoon” Bernard Tapie. LaGarde announced she wouldn’t appeal being let off the hook for her crime. How magnanimous.

Robert Steele: The DHS-FBI Report Against the Russians is Absolute Crap — Our Own Traitors, Not the Russians, Are the Real Enemy

The neo-fascist, neo-conservative coup against Donald Trump, the accidental president, continues. General Wesley Clark clearly articulated the success of the first coup. Others have articulated how the Deep State controls not just the US Government, but the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), the parent of Gladio false flag terrorism (which just assassinated the NATO Chief Auditor and probably the Russian Ambassador in Turkey as well), and Germany, where Angela Merkel is planning a European army and a European war against Russia rooted in illegal immigration she has encouraged and false flag attacks in which she is complicit.

CHARGES DROPPED FOR MAN WHO OPERATED VEHICLE “WHILE UNDER CAFFEINE”

Thanks in part to public exposure brought about by alternative media sites such as The Free Thought Project and others, Joseph Schwab of Fairfield, CA, will not face felony driving under the influence (DUI) charges for operating his vehicle while under the effects of caffeine. Yes. That’s right. Caffeine.

However, police note that they are still charging him with reckless driving.

TFTP brought attention to Schwab’s case on Monday in our first story.

And on Wednesday, the Solano County, CA District Attorney Krishna Abrams, announced they were dropping the DUI charges against Schwab. “After further consideration, without a confirmatory test of the specific drug in the defendant’s system that impaired his ability to drive, we do not believe we can prove the charge beyond a reasonable doubt,” the press release reads.

Despite their best attempts to charge this man with a DUI, they were unable to find anything other than caffeine in his system.

ANTHONY BOURDAIN SLAMS "PRIVILEGED" LIBERALS FOR THEIR "UTTER CONTEMPT" OF WORKING-CLASS AMERICA

It was his commentary on the arrogance of the liberal superclass that all other liberals (and conservatives) should note and learn from, and it is 100% accurate.

"I've spent a lot of time in gun-country, God-fearing America. There are a hell of a lot of nice people out there, who are doing what everyone else in this world is trying to do: the best they can to get by, and take care of themselves and the people they love. When we deny them their basic humanity and legitimacy of their views, however different they may be than ours, when we mock them at every turn, and treat them with contempt, we do no one any good. Nothing nauseates me more than preaching to the converted.

FAKE NEWS, MASS HYSTERIA AND INDUCED INSANITY

The "fake news" is that we've never been healthier, healthcare costs are under control and our economy has fully "recovered."

We've heard a lot about "fake news" from those whose master narratives are threatened by alternative sources and analyses. We've heard less about the master narratives being threatened: the fomenting of mass hysteria, which turns the populace into an easily manipulated and managed herd, and induced insanity, a longer-term marketing-based narrative that causes the populace to ignore the self-destructive consequences of accepting the fad/ ideology/ mindset being pushed as "good" and "normal."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The lies of the government, conveniently regurgitated by the lies of corporate media, the whorespondents, and presstitutes, cannot ever be believed anymore, by any thinking American.

And there are a hell of a lot more of us than both of the apparatchiks of the "deep state" want to admit exist.

Russian Foreign Ministry: Entire World 'Disgusted' by Obama's Disastrous Foreign Policy

The U.S. is still bogged down in Iraq.

The U.S. military is still protecting poppy fields in Afghanistan. It's been America's longest poppy field protection operation. And its longest war.

The first black president expanded AFRICOM and the shadow wars and classified drone operations in Africa.

He also destroyed Libya, the most prosperous, developed nation in North Africa. As expected, his justification for doing so was later revealed to be massive baloney bullshit.

He "created a secret drones program to kill terrorist suspects worldwide without public acknowledgement or due process. Under his watch, the US has expanded the field of battle in the "war on terrorism" to a dozen countries and constructed institutions and routines of surveillance and assassination – such as the so-called 'disposition matrix' and 'Terror Tuesdays' that will have serious consequences beyond his presidency."

Then there's Ukraine. Don't even get us started.

Meet The Russian Hacker Claiming She's A Scapegoat In The U.S. Election Spy Storm

"We don’t make malware for the Russian government." This was the response of Russian hacker Alisa Esage Shevchenko to a blunt question I put to her in April 2015: do you provide any kind of digital weapon to the Russian government? Since then we've been in touch over encrypted mail and Twitter. Indeed, she's been a trusted resource for all things white hat hacker related, including her input for a report on Russian exploits of critical nuclear power plant technology.

There was never any indication she was wrapped up in any shady cyberespionage work. Until yesterday, when the Obama regime banned her company, ZorSecurity (also known as Esage Lab), from doing business or entering America.

A nationwide Syrian ceasefire started last night with a major-scale offensive of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) and Jund al-Aqsa against government forces in northern Hama. The so-called “opposition” seized the hill of Bijo and aimed to take seize the town of Mahardeh, mostly populated by Christians. If Islamist militants were able to success in this, there would be a massacre of civilians in the area. However, the Syrian army and the National Defense Forces (NDF) rebuffed the attack and retook control of the Bijo Hill. The situation in the area remains tense.

BREAKING: OBAMA MAKES DEAL WITH SAUDI ARABIA TO ALLOW THEIR ISIS SOLDIERS TO RETREAT TO SAFETY

In September 2014, the then Director of the US National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC), Matthew Olsen, said Islamic State controlled an area similar in size to the United Kingdom, or about 210,000 square kilometers (81,000 sq. miles).

A year later, the U.S Department of Defense (DoD) declared that IS frontlines in much of northern and central Iraq and northern Syria had been pushed back significantly by U.S led air strikes and ground operations. The DoD estimated that IS had lost approximately 30-37% of what it controlled in August 2014, and 5-10% in Syria.

Even at that point, critics accused America of not telling the truth about their attacks on IS. Some suggested that Obama might be deliberately hindering the efforts because of his relationship with the terror organization.

Mainstream Media Is Now Whining About The "Fake News" Hysteria It Created

After coming under attack, the alternative media successfully appropriated and reassigned the now ubiquitous term “fake news” to a variety of disingenuous mainstream media outlets. The corporate media is not too happy about this, and it’s doing what it does best (aside from cheerleading for war); it’s whining about it to its readers.

Nothing more perfectly highlights the mainstream media’s instinctual response to complain than an article published on Christmas Day in The New York Times, which reinvents history by claiming alternative media is to blame for turning “fake news” into an overly expansive and thus meaningless term.

Clashes, air raids tarnish Russia and Turkey's Syria truce

Clashes, shelling and air raids in western Syria marred a Russian- and Turkish-backed ceasefire that aims to end nearly six years of war and lead to peace talks between rebels and a government emboldened by recent battlefield success.

Russian President Vladimir Putin, a key ally of Syrian President Bashar Assad, announced the ceasefire Thursday after forging the agreement with Turkey, a longtime backer of the opposition.

The truce went into force at midnight but monitors and rebels reported almost immediate clashes, and violence appeared to escalate later Friday as warplanes bombed areas in the country's northwest, they said.
