Smaller tax refunds put GOP on defensive

The Trump administration and key GOP lawmakers are playing defense after early data showed Americans are getting smaller tax refunds in the first filing season under the GOP tax law.

The average refund size through Feb. 8 was 8.7 percent smaller than the same period last year, according to IRS figures. Democrats have seized on the numbers, arguing they prove that the 2017 tax-code overhaul by Republicans was a “scam” designed to help the wealthy at the expense of the middle class.

What A Way To Go? Hackers Can Turn Sex Robots Into Killing Machines, Security Expert Warns

Patterson gave this warning in a string of interviews with various UK publications:

“Hackers can hack into a robot or a robotic device and have full control of the connections, arms, legs, and other attached tools like in some cases knives or welding devices. Often these robots can be upwards of 200 pounds and very strong. Once a robot is hacked, the hacker has full control and can issue instructions to the robot. The last thing you want is for a hacker to have control over one of these robots. Once hacked they could absolutely be used to perform physical actions for an advantageous scenario or to cause damage.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The problem with this reaf-mongering is that the only part of sex robots that move under computer control are the heads.

STAGED CHEMICAL ATTACK VIDEOS AND OTHER TRENDS IN MODERN PROPAGANDA

The scandal regarding the fake hospital video published by the White Helmets as a proof of the Douma chemical attack has reached its peak in the media and has caused reaction on the diplomatic level.

On February 13, BBC Syria’s producer Riam Dalati came out with a statement that “After almost 6 months of investigations” he “can prove without a doubt that the Douma Hospital scene was staged” and “no fatalities had occurred in the hospital.” Dalati added that he believes that “the attack did happen” but no Sarin was used and “everything else around the attack was manufactured for maximum effect.”

Hispaniola Rising: How the US Coup in Venezuela Is Taking Root in Haiti and the Dominican Republic

For more than a decade Venezuela has aided the governments of Haiti and the Dominican Republic through a preferential system known as Petrocaribe, and the people of those nations are not taking their governments’ support for the US coup in Venezuela lightly.

As Judas betrayed the Son of Man with a kiss for 20 pieces of silver, the institutionally corrupt governments in Port-au-Prince and Santo Domingo have written another sad chapter in their nation’s history.

Ironically, it was Venezuela that helped to develop the island’s energy infrastructure in recent years. A key part of this is the REFIDOMSA oil refinery in the Dominican Republic which the Venezuelan government helped to develop and partially owns, and which has also been used to help alleviate increased fuel demands and shortages in Haiti.

New York’s Crackdown on Knives Sparks Legal Battle

By Ilya Shapiro

It is fundamentally (and constitutionally) unfair to impose criminal liability on people who have no way of knowing their conduct is illegal and have no intent to commit a crime.

If a law is so vague that it makes it impossible to know whether what you’re doing is illegal or not, it cannot stand. Especially not when the vague law requires no criminal intent to render an action unlawful. The state of New York ignored this basic point of criminal law with its ban of “gravity knives”—pocket knives capable of being opened by the mere force of gravity or a slight flick of the wrist, as opposed to “switchblades,” which are spring loaded...

Another Study Blames Guns, Excludes Reality

Anti-gun advocates want to limit the rights of law-abiding gun owners and so research like this is held up as evidence that it must be the firearms themselves when, in reality, no one is arguing that everyone with any of the symptoms of mental illness tested here are necessarily dangerous. The inclusion of mental illness in the debate over gun rights is because some with severe mental illnesses do not receive the help they need and commit horrible acts. The responsible, law-abiding nature of tens of millions of American gun owners is ignored by efforts to restrict our rights.

Who’s Behind the Green New Deal? Big Money Backs Ocasio-Cortez Socialist Dream Project

The Green New Deal blueprint introduced by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was crafted by three far-left organizations and is being pushed by a coalition of well-funded professional progressive groups and known leftist agitators.

Some of the organizations helping to promote the Green New Deal have ties to financing from billionaire George Soros and trace their roots to such radical groups as Occupy Wall Street and Black Lives Matter.

Earlier this month, Ocasio-Cortez posted an 11-page Google document in the form of a nonbinding legislative resolution that has become the most authoritative version of the Green New Deal, a broad outline for the current conception of the socialist-style plan.

PALESTINIANS SAY ISRAEL 'PLAYING WITH FIRE' BY CLOSING TEMPLE MOUNT GATE

The Palestinian Authority on Monday warned that Israel was “playing with fire” after clashes erupted at the Temple Mount in Jerusalem over the closure of the Golden Gate site – also known as the Gate of Mercy – to Muslim worshipers. The PA also accused Israel of “waging war on Islam” and called on the intervention of the international community.

The Jerusalem Police detained five east Jerusalem Arabs who tried to enter the premises of the Golden Gate, which has been closed by a court order.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Netanyahu, as always, is fanning the flames of potential violence. There should be some kind of mechanism, at least allowing some Muslims through the gate, in order to worship.

McCabe Refuses to Answer Question About Lying Under Oath, Cites ‘Ongoing Legal Issues’

Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe appeared Monday on NPR’s “Morning Edition” to discuss his firing from the Bureau and the investigation into leaking information to The Wall Street Journal.

NPR host Steve Inskeep asked McCabe multiple times about the investigation and lying under oath, which McCabe dodged each time by blaming the “ongoing legal issues” that he is “handling.”

McCabe: Lisa Page, Peter Strzok ‘Good People Who Served This Country Well’

During an interview with NBC News’ “Today,” former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe defended former colleagues Lisa Page and Peter Strzok, saying the two are “good people who served this country well.”

Although text messages revealed the two alleged lovers bashed now-President Donald Trump, McCabe said he never saw “clear bias against the president” from them or anybody else within the FBI in the Hillary Clinton email investigation or the Russia investigation.

“Not once, not from Lisa Page, not from Pete Strzok, and not from anybody else on that team,” McCabe told NBC’s Savannah Guthrie.

'Suppression,' Debunked: Study Concludes Voter ID Laws Do Not Depress Voter Turnout

One pillar of dogma among leftist activists is that voter ID laws, under which citizens are required to present a valid form of identification in order to cast ballots in elections, amount to insidious and racist forms of "voter suppression." That term deserves to be placed in scare quotes because it's often employed as a catch-all phrase to describe any policy or idea that liberals believe would reduce their chances of winning. Voter ID laws have been upheld by the Supreme Court as constitutional, and enjoy overwhelming public support -- including approval from large majorities of racial minorities, who evidently don't share the professional Left's racialized hysteria. We've written previously about how, if reducing turnout among certain populations truly were the goal of such laws, they've failed miserably.

U.S. Taxpayers Fund Border Walls in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Egypt, and Lebanon

American taxpayers are continuing to fund border security measures and border walls in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Egypt, and Lebanon with President Trump’s signing of a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) spending bill.

While the United States-Mexico border received only $1.3 billion for construction of a border wall at the overwhelmed southern border with soaring illegal immigration, foreign countries are getting help from American taxpayers to secure their borders.

The Republican-Democrat spending bill signed by Trump last week provides Pakistan with at least $15 million in U.S. taxpayer money for “border security programs” as well as funding for “cross border stabilization” between Afghanistan and Pakistan.

Vandal spray paints #MeToo on Unconditional Surrender statue in downtown Sarasota

People driving through downtown Sarasota were greeted with a shocking sight by a familiar statue - graffiti.

Overnight, someone spray painted “#MeToo” on the Unconditional Surrender statue alone U.S. 41 near Marina Jacks. Police say they were called to the scene at North Gulfstream Avenue and Bayfront Drive shortly before 1am and discovered the graffiti, which they estimate caused $1,000 in damage. Police say they was no available surveillance video of the area and no known witnesses.

Genevieve Judge, spokesman for Sarasota Police, said, “We’re not sure what they had in mind. It’s just heartbreaking they’d take matters to this iconic statue that’s a piece of art we have here in the city, and so, it’s under investigation, we’re trying to figure out exactly who did this.”

‘I do not recognize my country’: Yellow Vests who have lost eyes, limbs demand justice from Macron

France gathered for the 14th week of Gilets Jaunes protests, with the injury toll of the worst civil unrest in decades now resembling that of a small war. Yet despite pleas from victims, Emmanuel Macron is tightening the screws.
“This is not normal. We are in France, one of the oldest and best democracies in the world,” says Fiorina Jacob Lignier, who lost her eye at a demonstration in Paris on December 8. "We usually condemn from afar other countries where this occurs, that this is happening here is unbelievable."

Lignier, a 20-year-old philosophy student, traveled from the northern city of Amiens to march on the Champs-Elysees to protest against fuel taxes with her boyfriend, Jacob Maxime.

He told RT that they were marching with a column of peaceful demonstrators, when a group of masked radicals began to vandalize a shopfront more than 50 yards away.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder .... if the "masked vandals" were actually elements of France's Secret Police, attempting to vilify peaceful protesters.

But I look at this young woman, with all her life before her, never being able to see out of the one eye she lost to the gas grenade strike, and of course, most probably never receiving any compensation by the French government, for her injuries.

I had to to wonder if France's police train with the IDF; their methods, motives, and opportunities, look very similar, in this case of crowd control gone horrifically wrong, unfortunately, my suspicions were entirely correct, as evidenced by the following article, with a dateline of early December,
2018:

Video: Mayhem in Paris, French police use tear gas and water cannons on yellow v vest protests

The article goes on to state: "Viewing the shooting angles of the tear-gas launchers, in the video, we can see police shooting them in a straight line at protesters. This is in violation of the normative use of tear-gas launchers, and are widely understood to be used as a form of projectile weapon, with the canister itself – not the gas per se – being a high-speed object meant to seriously injure those it strikes.

This is in line with the practices now being taught in France’s Gendarmerie, who train annually with Israel’s IDF."

He said that Juan Guaido, who earlier proclaimed himself the president, is a puppet of the US and recruited by Washington 10 years ago. The diplomat also said that he thinks that military intervention could follow the US's aid. The ambassador added that the Venezuelan government expects provocations from the opposition.

REVEALED: Grand Canyon tourists were exposed to radiation 4,000 times the safe limit for two decades from uranium stored in three buckets in a museum - and the park 'tried to cover it up' after they were removed

Tourists, employees and children on tours were exposed to radiation from uranium sitting in the Grand Canyon's museum collection building for nearly two decades, according to the park's safety manager.

Elston 'Swede' Stephenson, the park's safety, health and wellness manager, warned of possible health consequences to staff and the public from three five-gallon buckets of uranium ore which he claims were stored next to a taxidermy exhibit from 2000 until June 18, 2018, according to AZ Central.

Stephenson revealed the information in a rogue email to staff after bosses failed to issue any information on the exposure for eight months, he claims.

He believes top management are now involved in a cover-up operation, saying he has been cut off from all information about the exposure.

In his email, Stephenson wrote: 'If you were in the Museum Collections Building (2C) between the year 2000 and June 18, 2018, you were 'exposed' to uranium by OSHA's definition.'

The Worst Possible Version of the EU Copyright Directive Has Sparked a German Uprising

By Cory Doctorow

Last week’s publication of the final draft of the new EU Copyright Directive baffled and infuriated almost everyone, including the massive entertainment companies that lobbied for it in the first place; the artists’ groups who endorsed it only to have their interests stripped out of the final document; and the millions and millions of Europeans who had publicly called on lawmakers to fix grave deficiencies in the earlier drafts, only to find these deficiencies made even worse. The epicenter of the uprising is Germany, which is only fitting, given that German MEP Axel Voss is almost singlehandedly responsible for poisoning the Directive...

What HAS happened to the most expensive painting in the world? HARRY MOUNT traces the path of the $450m Da Vinci masterpiece that vanished after experts branded it a fake

The Prince bought the picture on behalf of the Abu Dhabi Department of Culture and Tourism, and its grand unveiling was due to take place at the new Louvre Abu Dhabi in September.

The museum of art and civilisation, which is said to have cost around one billion euros — including 400 million euros to carry the ‘Louvre’ name — opened last year, and the Leonardo was to have had pride of place.

But the unveiling was suddenly cancelled, with no explanation.

Now it is claimed by French art experts that plans to include Salvator Mundi at a landmark exhibition at the Louvre in Paris in the autumn, to celebrate the 500th anniversary of the death of da Vinci, may be on hold because of further doubts over its origins.

Man who died in Democratic megadonor Ed Buck's home called him a 'f---ing devil,' report says

A man who died last month at the West Hollywood home of prominent Democratic Party fundraiser Ed Buck warned his friends to steer clear of the well-connected donor and referred to him as a "f---ing devil" and "a horrible, horrible man," according to a report Monday night.

Timothy Dean, 55, was found dead in Buck's apartment early on Jan. 7, 17 months after 26-year-old male escort Gemmel Moore was found dead of a methamphetamine overdose. The Daily Beast reported that Dean and Buck had a relationship years before Moore's death, but Dean's friends claimed the relationship turned into a one-sided affair -- with Buck sending multiple text messages to Dean and Dean declining to respond.

More than 7,000 sign petition to sell Montana to Canada for $1 trillion to pay down national debt

More than 7,000 people have signed a petition to “sell” Montana to Canada for $1 trillion and use the proceeds to pay down the national debt – and it seems our northern neighbors would gladly welcome this bite out of the 49th Parallel.

“We have too much debt and Montana is useless,” says the text of the Change.org petition launched last week.

To get Canada to agree, “Just tell them it has beavers or something.”

That’s the entirety of the “cause,” though the slew of comments tacked onto the end by people giving their reasons for signing fleshed that out, as names were being added every three to four minutes on Monday.

EXCLUSIVE: Leaked Photos Show U.S. Border Facility Overwhelmed by Migrants

Leaked photos reveal the extent to which U.S. border facilities are being overwhelmed by the inflow of migrants from Central America and other nations. Breitbart exclusively obtained the photos that are reminiscent of the Obama-era border surge. The images depict a Customs and Border Protection (CBP) processing, detention, and transport facility at a U.S. port-of-entry in El Paso, Texas. According to the source of the images, the photos were taken on February 17, 2019.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Can anyone in the US government, begin to talk about this with a straight face, and tell me that there is no problem here?!?

Can any Democrat not talk about the real reason they want no border protection, and that is to allow illegal immigrants to vote, to shape the future trajectory of this country into a Thirdworldistan?!?

IF this is not, in fact, a true, national emergency, then I do not know what is.

Michael Savage, with whose work I have a hug and a punch (well, in my case, just a slight gentle touch on the shoulder, as I don't want to hurt anyone), has a trinity of values he believes all Americans should hold dear; and those, if I am remembering correctly, are "Border... language... and culture."

And I frankly think, in looking at these images, that the man is one hundred percent correct here.

Israel closes gate to Al-Aqsa Mosque

Israeli military police yesterday raided Al-Aqsa Mosque, attacked students and evicted them from the area and closed Al-Rahma Gate which leads to the holy site, witnesses said.

At the same time, the Israeli military police arrested five Palestinian worshippers, including a woman named Nazmiyeh Bkeerat.

Witnesses said Israeli occupation police reopened the gate after several attempts by angry Palestinian worshippers to enter the area through the door.

According to the witnesses, hundreds of Palestinian worshippers also performed prayers in front of the closed gate in an attempt to put pressure on the Israeli occupation to reopen it.

Rights group calls for international effort to stop Israel slashing PA funds

Al Mezan Centre for Human Rights said yesterday it is deeply concerned about the Israeli decision to deduct salaries of Palestinians killed, wounded and arrested by Israeli occupation forces from tax revenues collected on behalf of the Palestinian Authority (PA), a statement said.

Al Mezan added that Israeli’s actions are a violation of the Paris Protocol signed in 1994 between Israel and the PA.

This act, the statement said, “is a violation of international law, national sovereignty, public funds and all other agreements.”

The organisation reiterated that the Palestinian state is independent, as recognised by the UN on 29 November 2012. This entitles the PA to practice its right to regional sovereignty and to run its public funds.

Jordan called for Israel to stop its violations of Al-Aqsa’s sanctity immediately.

Meanwhile, spokesman of the Jordanian Foreign Ministry Sufyan Al-Qudah told the German news agency DPA that his ministry had condemned the Israeli occupation’s closure of the Al-Aqsa’s gates and their attacks on worshippers.

Al-Qudah demanded Israel “act in accordance with international law and immediately reopen the gates, respect the sanctity of the holy place, stop hampering the entry of worshippers, withdraw its security forces from Al-Aqsa Mosque and respect the feelings of Muslims.”

A Palestine-Jordan Confederation is becoming a very real possibility

There has been more talk recently from the Palestinians, Israelis and Jordanians about the option of a confederation as an alternative to the two-state solution in light of the political impasse reached between Ramallah and Tel Aviv. So what are the true positions of the three governments on this option, the chances of this being achieved on the ground, the official reactions of these countries, and public opinion on the matter?

Palestinian-Israeli relations have reached an unprecedented political stalemate because of the stalled negotiations between them since 2014. This may have prompted Palestinians to think outside the box or refer back to old talk of a confederation with the Hashemite Kingdom.

Trump Slams Alleged Plots to Tap & Oust From Office as 'Illegal and Treasonous

The alleged plot involves Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe, who told CBS on Sunday night that Rosenstein was "absolutely serious" about covertly wiretapping President Trump.

In a pair of tweets on Monday, US President Donald Trump lashed out at two senior Justice Department officials for allegedly plotting to secretly record him in the Oval Office and gather support for ousting him from power.

"Wow, so many lies by now disgraced acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe. He was fired for lying, and now his story gets even more deranged. He and [Deputy Attorney General] Rod Rosenstein, who was hired by [former Attorney General] Jeff Sessions (another beauty), look like they were planning a very illegal act, and got caught," Trump tweeted.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am still somewhat stunned that two men, who had to take an oath "to protect and defend the Constitution" actually were planning to do this to a sitting president.

But Trump is going to have to do more than tweet his anger here, and yes, it is completely justifiable.

But nothing in DC is going to change, unless and until the most corrupt of the corrupt, like Hillary Clinton, are brought into a court of law for operating a staggeringly large and complex money laundering scheme, AKA the Clinton Foundation.

And because President Trump understands this, he is not going after her directly, as the monied rarely eat their own.

And this will never happen, until the hangers-on from the Clinton years are unceremoniously handed their hats, and kicked clean out of this government.

Anti-Semitic flyers distributed in Missoula for 4th time this month

A fourth round of anti-Semitic flyers surfaced Monday in Missoula’s University District.

The flyers featured a disfigured service member with a controversial quote from Rabbi Ovida Yosef that said, “Goyim were born only to serve us.”

Other flyers have referenced circumcision, pictured President Donald Trump with the flag of Israel and said “Jews attack First Amendment.”

David Cox of Har Shalom knows that, although the flyers are hurtful, they are protected.

“There is a line that can be crossed, but as for putting out literature that is hateful or untrue,” he said, “people get to do that because of the free speech amendment.”

The flyers have been found in several spots around Missoula over the last few weeks.

Smells like another hoax to me.

How the rule of the rabbis is fuelling a holy war in Israel

n which country did a senior, state-salaried cleric urge his followers last week to become “warriors”, emulating a group of young men who had murdered a woman of another faith?

The cleric did so with impunity. In fact, he was only echoing other highly placed colleagues who have endorsed a book – again without penalty – urging their disciples to murder babies belonging to other religions.

Where can the head of the clergy call black people “monkeys” and urge the expulsion of other religious communities?

Where are these holy men so feared that women are scrubbed from billboards... and women find themselves literally pushed to the back of the bus?

Where does a clerical elite wield so much power that they alone decide who can marry or get divorced – and are backed by a law that can jail someone who tries to wed without their approval? They can even shut down the national railway system without notice.

Haitian Authorities Arrest Americans Transporting Cache of Weapons amid Uprising

Even as U.S. President Donald Trump seeks to inspire a military coup against the elected president of Venezuela, Nicolas Maduro, evidence is mounting that the U.S. government is enabling American mercenaries to violently quell a popular uprising in Haiti.

MintPress News previously examined the parallels between the uprising in Haiti and the Yellow Vest movement in France: both explicitly take aim at the economic oligarchy and government austerity policies; both have been the subject of violent crackdowns by the police; and the governments of both countries have gotten a free pass from Washington and its sympathetic media.

Five Americans and three others were arrested in Haiti on Sunday after they were discovered transporting a cache of weapons. Haitians have been engaged in an all-out uprising against the government for the past 10 days.

FLASHBACK - Lawrence Franklin espionage scandal

The Lawrence Franklin espionage scandal involved Lawrence Franklin passing classified documents regarding United States policy towards Iran to Israel. Franklin, a former United States Department of Defense employee, pleaded guilty to several espionage-related charges and was sentenced in January 2006 to nearly 13 years of prison, which was later reduced to ten months' house arrest. Franklin passed information to American Israel Public Affairs Committee policy director Steven Rosen and AIPAC senior Iran analyst Keith Weissman, who later were fired by AIPAC. They were later indicted for illegally conspiring to gather and disclose classified national security information to Israel. However, prosecutors later dropped all charges against them without any plea bargain.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

AIPAC was caught violating the espionage act, and not for the first time.

Farrakhan Praises Omar’s Anti-Semitic Remarks: ‘Shake Up That Corrupt House’

Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan on Sunday praised Representative Ilhan Omar’s (D., Minn.) recent endorsement of an anti-Semitic trope and urged the freshman lawmaker not to bow to pressure from critics.

“Ms. Omar from Somalia – she started talking about ‘the Benjamins’ and they are trying to make her apologize. Sweetheart, don’t do that. Pardon me for calling you sweetheart, but you do have a sweet heart. You sure are using it to shake the government up, but you have nothing to apologize for,” Farrakhan said during his annual Saviour’s Day address in Chicago, in comments first reported by the Washington Free Beacon.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is not an anti_Semitic trope to talk about AIPAC's influence over our politicians. It is an established fact. Indeed, seeing so many members of Congress rush to condemn Ilhan Omar makes it obvious they have something to hide from their constituents. I am stunned that I actually agree with Farrakhan on this oner; she has nothing to apologize for.

DESPITE 'WAR CRIMES' CONCERNS IN YEMEN, RAYTHEON NABS $1.6 BILLION ARMS DEAL WITH UAE

The United Arab Emirates (UAE) just inked billions in deals to secure new weapons from top Pentagon contractor Raytheon a week after an Amnesty International investigation further implicated the Gulf nation in war crimes for transferring Western weapons to unaccountable militia groups, thereby deepening the humanitarian crisis and fueling carnage in war-ravaged Yemen.

"Emirati forces receive billions of dollars' worth of arms from Western states and others, only to siphon them off to militias in Yemen that answer to no-one and are known to be committing war crimes."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It would be great to live in a country which has never, and will never, stoop to creating war crimes, the way the US and Saudi Arabia have colluded to do in Yemen, where an active, ongoing genocide continues, about which we Americans get to hear very little.

“If you look at Trump in America and Bolsonaro in Brazil, you see that people want politicians that do what they promise,” said Spanish businessman Juan Carlos Perez Carreno.

The Spaniard was explaining to The New York Times what lay behind the rise of Vox, which the Times calls “Spain’s first far-right party since the end of the Franco dictatorship in 1975.”

Indeed, the growing impatience of peoples with elected leaders and legislators who cannot or will not act decisively explains two realities of our time: the eclipse of Congress and the rise of autocracy worldwide.

“Stop the Online Conspiracy Theorists Before They Break Democracy”

The QAnon community, which began on the message-board site 4chan, strongly overlaps with the support networks of far-right movements such as the EDL and Pegida. Most recently, it co-opted yellow vest demonstrations and boosted hardline Brexit campaigns and Tommy Robinson protests. By injecting conspiratorial narratives into these movements, its members can leverage existing networks and alter their political direction. A commonly used tactic is to combine conspiracist hashtags with those of viral campaigns and trending topics. The scale this generates is disproportional enough to distort public perception: In 2018, ISD identified close to 30m uses of the word “QAnon” across Twitter, YouTube and forums such as Reddit and 4chan.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I notice that this story came courtesy of the Guardian.co.uk.com, not precisely the bastion of a reasonably Centrist approach to politics, etc..

But that being said, if I am reading this correctly, the person who put this up doesn't have any faith in any of their readers to watch these events, and not be misled, because they are thoroughly incapable of applying logic to the situation, and make intelligent, fact-centered decisions for themselves.

In other words, the people who don't want you to read anything by any of these groups on line, think that their AMerican, British and European counterparts are complete, utter dolts and ignoramuses, who cannot, intellectually, winnow the grain from the chaff.

I say, let these sites, etc., be examined under the unblinking light of logic and fact, and that intelligent people will not have their intellectual capacity diminished whatsoever.

Her Name Is Barbara Harper: 71-Year-Old White Great-Grandmother Murdered by Black Male Leaving Strip Club in What Kansas City Media Dub "Mistaken Identity"

Not one.

Of all the media outlets in Kansas City, none dared show a picture of Barbara Harper. In not one of the local news affiliate broadcast (ABC, CBS, FOX, or NBC) did a newscast show her face when they described how she died.

Self-Hating Whites

White people are on the point of extinction. If you say anything about it, you are labeled a “white supremacist.” Black lives matter, but not white lives.

We this, for example, in South Africa where white farmers are being massacred under the slogan “land or death” by blacks whose forebears arrived in South Africa after the forebears of the white farmers. The line is that the whites stole the blacks’ land and that Africa is black and, thereby, reserved for blacks. Whites are unwanted illegal immigrants.

If the roles were reversed and it was whites massacring blacks, the white media in the Western world would be shrill in its condemnation of the whites. As it is blacks massacring whites, there is not a peep. The only way you can learn about it is to read English language Russian Internet sites.

Only Russia has offered South African whites refuge. The US, Europe, and Canada are overflowing with non-white immigrants but have no room for white ones.

CBS Chicago: Jussie Smollett Paid Nigerian Bodybuilder Bros $3,500 for False Flag Attack

Jussie Smollett paid two brothers to stage an attack against him, directed them to buy items used in the alleged assault and actually rehearsed it with them, sources say.

Sources say at least one of the brothers bought the rope used in the incident at Smollett’s request. The sources also say the “Empire” actor paid for the rope, which was purchased at the Crafty Beaver Hardware Store in the Ravenswood neighborhood the weekend of Jan. 25.

The brothers, who were questioned by police this week before being released, were paid $3,500 before leaving for Nigeria and were promised an additional $500 upon their return.

The First Rule of AIPAC Is: You Do Not Talk about AIPAC

Washington’s political establishment went berserk when US Representative Ilhan Omar (D-MN) publicly noted that US-Israel relations are “all about the Benjamins” – slang for $100 bills, referring to money shoveled at American politicians by the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC).

Omar was accused of antisemitism – immediately by Republicans, shortly after by members of her own party – and bullied into apologizing. She may or may not be prejudiced against Jews, but even if she is, that wasn’t her real offense.

Her real offense was publicly mentioning the irrefutable fact that many members of Congress take their marching orders from a foreign power’s lobbying apparatus (an apparatus not, as required by law, registered under the Foreign Agents Registration Act), at least partly because those marching orders come with promises of significant donations to those politicians’ campaigns.

Trump warns Venezuelan military to abandon Maduro or 'lose everything'

U.S. President Donald Trump on Monday warned members of Venezuela's military who remain loyal to socialist President Nicolas Maduro that they are risking their future and their lives and urged them to allow humanitarian aid into the country.

Speaking to a cheering crowd mostly of Venezuelan and Cuban immigrants in Miami, Trump said if the Venezuelan military continues supporting Maduro, "you will find no safe harbor, no easy exit and no way out. You’ll lose everything.”

Maduro retaliated late on Monday that Trump's speech was "nazi-style" and said he acted as if he were the owner of Venezuela and its citizens his slaves.

After CNN Report, Facebook Censors Pages With Claimed Links to Russia

Facebook has suspended a number of accounts linked to Maffick Media following a report by CNN claimed the group is secretly linked with the Russian government. Maffick Media is based in Germany, and while it is partly owned by a Russian subsidiary, the company says it has full editorial independence.

CNN noted Maffick’s part-ownership by Ruptly, a Russian state media subsidiary, and accused them of not disclosing this ownership on Facebook, even though Facebook had never required any such disclosure, and no one is even accusing Maffick of spreading any disinformation on the pages.

Public documents show Maffick is 51% owned by Ruptly, a Germany-based news agency which is itself owned by Russia’s state television station RT.

Despite this, Facebook responded to the CNN report by taking down Maffick’s pages, accusing them of misleading the public “about who’s behind them,” and that in the future they will ask these pages to disclose “their Russian affiliations.”

This Is How AIPAC Really Works

One thing that should be said about Representative Ilhan Omar’s tweet about the power of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (more commonly known as AIPAC, or the “Israel lobby”) is that the hysterical reaction to it proved her main point: The power of AIPAC over members of Congress is literally awesome, although not in a good way. Has anyone ever seen so many members of Congress, of both parties, running to the microphones and sending out press releases to denounce one first-termer for criticizing the power of… a lobby?

Somehow, I don’t think the reaction would have been the same if she had tweeted that Congress still supports the ethanol subsidy because the American Farm Bureau and other components of the corn/ethanol lobby spend millions to keep this agribusiness bonanza going (which they do). Or that if she had opposed the ethanol subsidy, she would have been accused of hating farmers.

McCabe's Shocking Claims Prove The Bloodless Coup Rolls On

Disgraced former acting FBI director Andrew McCabe has provided clear evidence that in 2017 a small cabal of high-level officials inside the Department of Justice (DOJ) weighed whether to attempt to remove the duly-elected president of the United States. McCabe claims that he and others at the top of the FBI and DOJ held multiple discussions about invoking the Constitution’s 25th Amendment to declare President Trump unfit for office and install the vice president in his place.

Is this proof that a rolling bloodless coup really existed within the government? McCabe himself previously provided false information to the DOJ, for which he was unceremoniously fired, rendering any statements he now makes while promoting his book highly suspect. But, given the underpinnings of the entire Russia collusion investigation and what we know now about its early steps, McCabe’s statements ring disturbingly true.

Facebook accused of acting like 'digital gangsters' in a devastating report by lawmakers

British lawmakers have accused Facebook of behaving like "digital gangsters", abusing its dominant power in social networks, and behaving "ahead of and beyond the law."

The comments come in a devastating report on fake news by British Parliament's Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Committee, made up of cross-party UK politicians and led by Conservative MP Damian Collins.

Facebook deliberately flouted privacy and competition laws and should be subject to new regulation, the committee wrote.

Lawmakers accused Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg of showing "contempt" for UK Parliament, and a larger gathering of international parliaments after he refused to give evidence three times.

FLASHBACK - Facebook Says it is Deleting Accounts at the Direction of the U.S. and Israeli Governments

In September of last year, we noted that Facebook representatives were meeting with the Israeli Government to determine which Facebook accounts of Palestinians should be deleted on the ground that they constitute “incitement.” The meetings – called for and presided over by one of the most extremist and authoritarian Israeli officials, its pro-settlement Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked – came after Israel threatened Facebook that its failure to voluntarily comply with Israeli deletion orders would result in the enactment of laws requiring Facebook to do so, upon pain of being severely fined or even blocked in the country.

‘SHOOT THE PRESIDENT’: SCHOOL CANCELS ASSASSINATION PARTY GAME FOR KIDS AFTER PUBLIC OUTCRY

A school running a community arts center in Ohio was forced to stop advertising a party game where kids are instructed to ‘eliminate’ the president with toy guns, after it sparked national outrage.
The game entitled ‘President’ had been advertised as a part of Nerf gun-themed party organized by the Olmsted Performing Arts community center in Berea, a suburb of Cleveland.

“There is one president with body guards. Everyone else tries to eliminate or shoot the president,” read the description of the game on the center’s website, since deleted.

HOW CNN LED FACEBOOK TO CENSOR PAGES OF RUSSIA-BACKED VIDEO COMPANY AND MANUFACTURED NEWS STORY

CNN went in search for a story about a Russian-funded digital media project that produces viral videos aimed at undermining American democracy. When CNN journalists could not find what they were looking for, they effectively manufactured the news by giving Facebook a pretext for removing the project’s pages used to share videos. Now, the cable news network had their story.

Four CNN journalists worked on the report, “Russia is backing a viral video company aimed at American millennials.” It appeared online late in the day on February 15 and broke the news that Maffick Media had their Facebook pages for three video channels suspended.

Maffick also produces In The Now, which Facebook took down as well.

RUSSIA AND CHINA ARE CONTAINING THE US TO RESHAPE THE WORLD ORDER

SOURCE: THE DURAN
Authored by Federico Pieraccini via The Strategic Culture Foundation:

Moscow and Beijing, following a complex relationship from the period of the Cold War, have managed to achieve a confluence of interests in their grand objectives over the coming years. The understanding they have come to mainly revolves around stemming the chaos Washington has unleashed on the world.

The guiding principle of the US military-intelligence apparatus is that if a country cannot be controlled (such as Iraq following the 2003 invasion), then it has to be destroyed in order to save it from falling into Sino-Russian camp. This is what the United States has attempted to do with Syria, and what it intends to do with Venezuela.

SAUDI ARABIA'S DOUBLE STANDARD ON INTERNATIONAL JUSTICE

Originally published at WhoWhatWhy.org

In August 2018, Saudi Arabia expelled the Canadian ambassador in Riyadh, halted direct flights to Toronto, suspended new trade deals, and threatened to relocate thousands of Saudis studying in Canada.

The diplomatic fallout was all because Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland tweeted her concern for a Saudi activist, Samar Badawi, who was arrested for her human rights advocacy in the Kingdom.

Very alarmed to learn that Samar Badawi, Raif Badawi’s sister, has been imprisoned in Saudi Arabia. Canada stands together with the Badawi family in this difficult time, and we continue to strongly call for the release of both Raif and Samar Badawi.

— Chrystia Freeland (@cafreeland) August 2, 2018
The social media post, the Saudi Foreign Ministry said in response, was an “overt and blatant interference in the internal affairs of the Kingdom” and violated “the most basic international norms.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It very much bothers me... that President Trumps's BFFs in the Middle East are the Butcher of Yemen, Saudi Crown Prince Bin Salman and the Butcher of Gaza, Israel's Bibi Netanyahu.

So one has to wonder; why does President Trump stand in such awe of these monsters? Is it perhaps, that they can do that he cannot do, because at least, Trump is still, somewhat, bound by the rule of American law, as weak and gasping for breath as it may be right now, as I type this.

I think, at some levels, President Trump is envious over some powers these two have that he does not; perhaps,it is The power to have someone they don't particularly like, assassinated... with the stroke of a pen, pr perhaps even with a whisper....in the ears of "the right people".

FLASHBACK - U.S. Government and Top Mexican Drug Cartel Exposed as Partners

For over a decade, under multiple administrations, the U.S. government had a secret agreement with the ruthless Mexican Sinaloa drug cartel that allowed it to operate with impunity, an in-depth investigation by a leading Mexican newspaper confirmed this week. In exchange for information and assistance in quashing competing criminal syndicates, the Bush and Obama administrations let the Sinaloa cartel import tons of drugs into the United States while wiping out Sinaloa competitors and ensuring that its leaders would not be prosecuted for their long list of major crimes. Other revelations also point strongly to massive but clandestine U.S. government involvement in drug trafficking.

The new portable Russian anti-tank systems being developed can be a major problem for NATO tanks.

Charlie Gao, the author of the article, points out that the developers are aiming to increase the penetration capacity of the new missile, resistance to interference and destruction capability of armor, such as the NATO M1A2C Abrams.

“The new missile system is innovative because it operates based on the principle of ‘fired, forgot’,” according to Gao.

Poroshenko At Munich Promises To Keep Bombarding Donetsk, Answering “Russian Aggression”

President of Ukraine Poroshenko during a speech at the Munich Security Conference said that Ukraine does not intend to stop shelling the republics of Donbass, because if Kiev ceases firing, the Ukrainian state will cease to exist.
“If Russia stops shooting, there will be peace. If Ukraine stops shooting, there will not be Ukraine,” Poroshenko said.

In this he maintains what we have called the Volker Doctrine, after US Special Envoy to Ukraine Kurt Volker, who insists that the Donetsk and Lugansk Republics do not exist and the only entity to talk to — is Russia. And it is not a civil war, but purely “Russian Aggression.”

At the same time, he described the political and economic situation in Ukraine as a “success story.”
Poroshenko also boasted that during his presidency in Ukraine “the most profound reforms in the history of the country” were carried out. The day before, Poroshenko ordered to come up with “evidence of Russia’s aggression” to use in his speech in Munich.

The British minister also mentioned that the United Kingdom will send to the Arctic region next year a Poseidon P8 maritime patrol plane to monitor the growing activity of Russian submarines.
