Trained biologist: What is this weird creature with wings in this jar?

A trained biologist by the name of Brian Foerster came across a rather unusual animal in a lab south of the border where the observers/handlers of the creature claim it’s likely a “hybrid.”

X-rays have been taken of the creature along with DNA samples which show that the creature’s DNA is 98.5% similar to humans.

The Dumbing Down of America – By Design

The most obvious example of how Americans have been dumbed down is through this nation’s failed public education system. At one time not that long ago America reigned supreme as a leading model for the rest of the world providing the best quality free public K-12 education system on the planet. But over the last many decades while much of the rest of the world has been passing us by, it seems an insidious federal agenda has been implemented to condition and brainwash a population of mindless, robotic citizenry that simply does what it’s told, and of course the brainwashing commences early in America’s schools.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I do marketing for a living; and it is frightening to listen to people who may well have a high school education, and diploma, but appear to have learned nothing from it, during the time they were in school.

I was very lucky to have come from a very ordinary middle class background, but the importance of language, critical thinking, and education, were very strongly impressed upon me.

Parents today need to embrace those values, because it is not just the schools which have the responsibility to teach our young; it is definitely the parents as well.

My brother and sister-in-law were very smart about how they raised their two girls; there was a lot of focus on homework, and accomplishing their tasks. And when my sister-in-law went back for her Masters in nursing, all three would gather around the dining room table to study.

Both young women now have excellent careers, and are very accomplished sweet, whole, self-realized adults.

Trump says would like to have Russia’s help with North Korea

President Donald Trump would like to have Russia’s help to deal with North Korea, he told reporters following his phone call with President Vladimir Putin.

"The primary point was to talk about North Korea, because we would love to have his help on North Korea. China's helping, Russia's not helping; we'd like to have Russia's help," Trump said at a briefing outside the White House.

N. Korea: Trump taking dangerous step to nuclear war by seeking naval blockade

US President Donald Trump is taking an "extremely dangerous" and "big step" towards nuclear war by seeking a naval blockade, North Korea has stated, according to the official KCNA news agency.
Pyonyang also said it will take "merciless self-defensive" measures against any blockade, as it would consider such a move an "act of war." The North Korean government also believes any blockade would be a "wanton violation" of its sovereignty and dignity, KCNA reported, citing a foreign ministry spokesman.

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson previously mentioned the "right to interdict maritime traffic transporting goods" to and from the North, following Pyongyang's latest intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) test on November 29.

Pyongyang also lashed out at the possible US move in a commentary on Sunday in the communist party newspaper Rodong Sinmun.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Secretary of State Tillerson, a word, please; your alleged "right to interdict maritime traffic transporting goods" to and from the North, will be considered, and rightly so, an act of war against North Korea; and then, where are we?!?

Committed to a foreign policy here of more death and destruction (because this country's military can), which is bound to tick off every country with which we still, for the moment, have relations?!?

THAT, sir, would be a completely, catastrophically wrong action here.

We have relations with nuclear-armed countries and are not consistently screaming about regime change in those countries, like Pakistan and India; why should North Korea be different, please tell me?!?

And Russia's President Putin is absolutely correct when he states that the only way North Korea knows it won't get attacked by the US, is to develop weapons as a deterrent to any kind of a military strike.

If you are looking at the world through the lens of North Korean geopolitics, this is the only thing which makes reasonable, logical sense; but unfortunately, it is US foreign policy, through the decades, which has made this their only course of action.

MSM Whitewash Admits US Funds ISIS But There Is Much More To The Story

By Brandon Turbeville

Following on the heels of the pseudo-journalistic whitewash by the BBC regarding the UK government’s funding of terrorism in Syria, USA Today has released a similar piece revealing how the United States has armed ISIS in Syria and Iraq. Of course, USA Today claims that the arms which made their way from the United States and Saudi Arabia to the hands of ISIS were all unintentional, thus completing another whitewash of what has already been exposed numerous times in the alternative media.

The report by USA Today is entitled “The U.S. Bought Weapons For Syrian Rebels – And Some Wound Up In The Hands Of ISIS Terrorists”...

Iraq, Syria, Iran…Are We To Destroy Iran Next?

The Cato report linked above, The Risks of Confrontation with Iran, explains the four confrontation options. These are:

— New, tighter economic sanctions

–Challenging Iranian influence in the region

–Regime change from within

–Starting a war

The Cato conclusion is that America’s best policy option would be for further engagement with Iran to strengthen its more moderate political factions and weaken its hardliners. America used to be widely popular among younger Iranians who want peace and prosperity, not mullahs and wars. The greater threat is Washington’s military-industrial-Congress complex which so benefits from unending wars.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What the Cato Institute Report is advocating, is completely, utterly logical; this is why the American Deep State and warhawks will reject it out of hand.

And please remember: Should the US and Saudi Arabian military go to war against Iran, it is highly likely that the Russians will jump into the fray to protect it.

And as we have seen from Russia's grand finale in Syria, Russia has weapons which actually work as advertised.

Julian Assange Just Warned of a Deep State Coup Meant to Install Mike Pence as President

In a tweet this morning, WikiLeaks founder, Julian Assange, made a prescient observation that the ongoing deep state coup against President Trump is an operation by establishment forces to unseat Trump and replace him with Vice President Mike Pence. Assange noted that Trump’s political capital has “been openly looted for months now by GOP, CIA, Netanyahu, Goldman Sachs, etc.”

Essentially, Assange is saying is that the aforementioned stakeholders who want to see Trump gone have played a long-game, whereby they have worked “to extract as many unpopular positions as possible (e.g tax cuts for the super rich), push the resulting political corpse to Mueller & install Mike Pence.”

A Wider World of War

All of this could be seen, however, not just as the foibles of one president surrounded by “his” generals, but as the culmination of a post-9/11 process in which American policymaking has increasingly been militarized. In this context, as the State Department shrinks, don’t think this country has no ambassadors across the planet. America’s Special Operations forces increasingly act as our “diplomats” globally, training and bolstering allies and attempting to undermine enemies more or less everywhere.

Bombed into famine: how Saudi air campaign targets Yemen’s food supplies

At 11.30pm, 10 nautical miles off Yemen’s western Red Sea coast, seven fishermen were near the end of the four hours it had taken to haul their nets bulging with the day’s catch into their fibreglass boat. Suddenly, away from the illumination of the vessel’s large spotlight, one of the men spotted a black silhouette coming towards them.

Moments later a helicopter began circling overhead. The fishermen were well within the 30 nautical mile boundary they had been warned not to cross by leaflets airdropped on land by the Saudi-led coalition. But, without warning, gunfire erupted from the helicopter.

Osam Mouafa grabbed his friend, Abdullah, dragging him into a corner, curling himself into a protective ball as bullets flew through the boat. Shot in both knees, with a third bullet having grazed his thigh, Osam began to feel water rising around him. “The boat became like a sieve,” he said, sitting next to the wooden stick he now needs to walk.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These are the kinds of war crimes the US government is enabling in Yemen, with the Saudi Arabian military and government; doesn't it just make you proud to be an American?!?

Take a good, hard look, my brother and sister Americans, at what this US military intervention in the Saudi genocide of Yemen, courtesy of the Butcher of Yemen, Prince Salman, has "accomplished": and I warn you; these images are intensely graphic, but very real.

Images:
Yemeni children killed or maimed for life from Saudi bombings

Images: Yemeni children dying of malnutrition, due to Saudi/US blockade of Yemeni ports

Images: Saudi troops using depleted uranium and chemical weapons in Yemen

Images: severely malformed Yemeni infants, the victims of DU poisoning in the womb (warning: very graphic)

What a "win" in this situation means,from the perspective of Prince Salman, is a complete assassination of every Yemeni person with the audacity to still be breathing.

And to that end, he has ordered more intense bombings than he has before.

Saudis Bomb Yemen Palace as War Takes New Turn With Saleh Death

When I was a kid growning up, I never realized that this country routinely participates in war crimes; now, I live with the grim realisation that this is true every, single waking hour.

Whether President Trump had a moment of conscience (which I doubt, as he has been chatting up the US selling of bombs to Saudi Arabia as, in essence, good for American business), or was attempting to "soften" the optics of announcing that the US recognised Jerusalem as Israel's capital when he requested the Saudis to cease the Yemeni blockade, Trump calls on Saudi government to end Yemeni blockade that request fell on deaf ears.

Unless, and until, there is ia political resolution here, Yemen's future will be more assassinations; more starvation; more disease; more displacement of innocent civilians; and continued Saudi and US military destruction and devastation visited upon that country in unimaginable proportions.

The Maidan Massacre: US Army Orders: Sow Chaos

In a dramatic development in the trial in Kiev of several Berkut police officers accused of shooting civilians in the Maidan demonstrations in February 2014, the defence has produced two Georgians who confirm that the murders were committed by foreign snipers, at least 50 of them, operating in teams. The two Georgians, Alexander Revazishvili and Koba Nergadze have agreed to testify by video from Tbilisi, if permitted, as they feared for their lives if brought to Kiev.

China echos call to make East Jerusalem capital of independent Palestine

China has voiced its support for the establishment of an independent Palestinian state, based on pre-1967 borders with East Jerusalem as its capital.

A spokesperson for the foreign ministry made the statement during a regular press briefing, Thursday, while addressing questions on a declaration by Muslim nations asserting East Jerusalem as the capital of Palestine.

The Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) made the announcement at a summit in Istanbul, Wednesday, and condemned the US decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

Iran: US Presentation of Iranian Arms in Yemen Fabricated

The Iranian government has issued a statement Thuesday denying that a presentation earlier in the day by the US represented proof that they’d been sending arms to the Shi’ite Houthis in Yemen to resist the US-backed Saudi invasion, saying it was a ‘fabrication.”

The US presentation centered on a short-range ballistic missile fired by Yemen at the Riyadh airport, which US officials claim was Iranian-made and Iranian-sent. US Ambassador Nikki Haley talked up building a new coalition against Iran.

Iran’s Foreign Minister likened Haley’s presentation to Colin Powell’s 2003 WMD speech about Iraq, which precipitated the disastrous US invasion and occupation of Iraq.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Iranian Foreign Minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif, is entirely correct in his assessment and analogy here.

Pence delays Middle East trip in case needed for U.S. tax vote

U.S. Vice President Mike Pence will delay an upcoming Middle East trip by a few days in case a tie-breaking vote is needed from him for tax cut legislation in Congress, a senior White House official said on Thursday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Reuters, Reuters, Reuters; this is really a "lipstick on a pig" moment for you, and the optics of this lame excuse are just officially horrible.

No one in the Middle East, except, perhaps Bibi Netanyahu, wants to recieve Pence because of President Trump's announcement, last week, that he recognised Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

The Palestinians, and leaders of other Middle Eastern countries now understand that the US government can never, ever again be considered as an honest broker of peace in the region, will always favor Israel, no matter what it does, and collectively has the morals of a dead tree stump.

President Trump threw the Palestinian people under a bus last week, most probably in return for a $100 million dollar campaign donation from Sheldon Adelson in 2016, and the Palestinians have every right to be infuriated.

That fury resulted in the following action on the part of Abbas:

Abbas won't meet U.S. Vice President Pence: official

That the President did not understand that there would be severe international consequences to his act last week of recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's capital indicates one of two things; he is either painfully naive, or is getting some really hideous advice from his "President Whisperers" when it comes to thorny geopolitical issues in the Middle East.

Obama State Department Let Clinton And Huma Make Off With Boxes Of ‘Muslim Engagement’ DocsJAC

The Obama State Department allowed former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her top aide Huma Abedin to remove call logs, scheduling documents and files described as “Muslim Engagement” from government premises by labeling the records “private,” Judicial Watch has learned.

Judicial Watch obtained records about the document removals in response to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for all forms authorizing the removal of “personal papers and non-record materials,” according to a Thursday press release.

“These new documents show the Obama State Department had a deal with Hillary Clinton to hide her calls logs and schedules, which would be contrary to FOIA and other laws,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said in a statement. “When are the American people going to get an honest investigation of the Clinton crimes?”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why am I (singularly) unsurprised by this move on Obama's part?!?

More evidence surfaces showing FBI colluded to get Hillary Clinton off the hook for email server (Video)

Newly released documents reveal that former FBI Director James Comey’s draft statement on the Hillary Clinton email investigation was edited in a way that watered down the the FBI’s findings.

James Comey’s statement was changed in Hillary Clinton’s favor, as new documents released on Thursday by Senator Ron Johnson (chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee reveal) show that the FB made edits to Hillary’s draft statement that essentially resulted in no formal indictment.

Newly released documents reveal that then-FBI Director James Comey’s draft statement on the Hillary Clinton email probe was edited numerous times before his public announcement, in ways that seemed to considerably water down the bureau’s findings.

The edits also showed that references to specific potential violations of statutes on “gross negligence” of classified information and “misdemeanor handling” were removed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The American people now are slowly beginning to comprehend the depth and breadth of FBI collusion to "rescue Hillary" on the email server issue; and they are feeling both very angry, and very betrayed.

The FBI had better clean its own house to regain any shred of credibility with the American people; otherwise, the entire agency should be sacked, period, end of discussion.

NEW CITY ORDINANCE OUTLAWS GIVING MONEY TO PANHANDLERS, VIOLATORS WILL BE FINED & JAILED

Wichita used to be known as “Cowtown” because of its cattle trade but now if people stop and give something as small as a cheeseburger to a homeless person they run the risk going to jail and paying a $500 fine. The ordinance was recently approved by the city council and now complicates matters for both panhandlers and philanthropic citizens alike.

Beat downs and arrests by police are, unfortunately, becoming a larger and larger part of the homeless culture. Not only do police regularly harass the homeless but TFTP has reported on incidents in which officers have confiscated blankets and tentsfrom homeless people in the middle of the winter.

Whether the dehumanization is to make way for the up and coming comic book festival or just a run of the mill sadistic police gang murder, homeless folks in the US are finding themselves in an increasingly hostile police state.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The criminalization of homelessness continues apace in this country.

If He's Lost Fox Viewers...

The most important poll number to come out this week had nothing to do with defeated Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore. It had to do with Fox News and Donald Trump. We'll get to the numbers in a minute.
***
But there's a difference between favorable and helpful. Much of the opinion stuff essentially involves mirroring Trump's Twitter feed, attacking Trump critics and railing about the "rigged system," "fake news" and the "deep state." It's so much muchness, as the British say.
***
Which brings me to those poll numbers. Suffolk University and USA Today released a poll this week which found that among people who trust Fox News the most, the president's approval rating has been sinking. His favorability among Fox devotees in June was 90 percent. In October, it was 74 percent. This week? Fifty-eight percent. If that trend continues, he will be underwater with the Fox audience long before the 2018 midterms.

US states consider using powerful fentanyl to execute inmates

Fentanyl, a potent drug playing a major role in the US opioid crisis described by Donald Trump as a "plague," is now under consideration for use in lethal cocktails to execute inmates.

The states of Nevada and Nebraska are planning to supply prison executioners with the opioid painkiller -- which killed more than 20,000 people in the United States in 2016 -- drawing criticism from doctors and activists who call the move a dangerous human experiment.

They warn of serious risks posed to death row prisoners, who effectively become guinea pigs against their will.

Fentanyl, which also acts as an anesthetic, is 50 times more powerful than heroin and up to 100 times stronger than morphine.

The bid to use fentanyl as a capital punishment tool is due to a shortage of drugs normally used in lethal injections and is not grounded in scientific analysis, according to Deborah Denno, an expert on lethal injection at Fordham University.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I think that the death penalty, as carried out in the United States, is morally wrong and repugnant, because it is inevitably the poor, and poorly legally represented, criminals who have this sentence passed upon them.

A Hillary Clinton, even if she started stabbing people to death in broad daylight, in front of witnesses (of course, someone like her most probably has assassins on speed dial, but I digress), would never have such sentence imposed upon her due to her personal wealth and connections.

She would, of course, have the money to hire a "dream team" of attornies to get the charges either dropped, or substantially modified. And she would not spend one day in jail, following her plea bargain.

Not so for America's poor.

And the chain of evidence, including DNA evidence, is handled so sloppily here in the United States that there is a national student movement, called the innocence project, to exonerate wrongly accused and convicted people through examining DNA evidence:

The Innocence Project

That the US needs such an organisation is an horrific embarrassment to its judicial process.

Until we can restore life to those wrongly executed, the US penal system has no right in taking it. I am no snowflake or bleeding heart; but life incarceration at hard labor, seems to me to be a reasonable alternative to execution.

Yemen's Ansarullah Rejects US Claims about Iran's Missile Aid

A spokesman for Yemen’s Ansarullah categorically dismissed the recent US accusations that Iran had supplied a missile fired at Saudi Arabia last month, and said it was a move to distract the international community's attention from the United States’ decision to recognize al-Quds (Jerusalem) as Israeli regime’s capital.
“After three years of war, America suddenly finds evidence that Iran supports the Ansarullah,” Abdel-Malek al-Ejri wrote on his Twitter account.

“America did not find any evidence in all the missiles fired from Yemen until now. The story is clear. They want to give Arabs a story to divert their attention from al-Quds. Instead of being angry at Israel, they wave the Iranian bogey,” he added.

The United States on Thursday presented for the first time pieces of what it said were Iranian weapons supplied to Yemen's Ansarullah, describing it as conclusive evidence that Tehran was violating UN resolutions.

COLOGNE OFFICIALS TO COMBAT NYE SEX ATTACKS WITH 'TOLERANCE' WRISTBANDS

The city of Cologne has announced they will be handing out "respect" wristbands to encourage understanding between individuals on New Year's Eve and prevent the kind of sex attacks that occurred in 2015. The wristbands are part of a new campaign called "respect" which is sponsored by the city government and controversial Cologne Mayor Henriette Reker. Many have slammed Reker and the campaign on social media likening it to comments she made shortly after the 2015 attacks calling on women to keep men at "arm's length", Kronen Zeitung reports.

At a press conference, Reker said that the campaign would focus on telling people not to sexually attack others or shoot fireworks at individuals, buildings or police. The wristbands themselves are meant to inform others to be respectful when approaching the wearer and prevent potential sex attacks.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

To the women of Cologne: your mayor is an absolute epic fail on this issue.

You will be better served by getting training in those martial arts classes which are still legal, buying personal protection which is still legal, and travelling in groups when you are outside your work environment.

Only when immigrant males understand that you are not to be messed with, because you actually understand how to hurt them if forced to, and badly, will they back off.

WHY DOES THE NEW $1 BILLION US EMBASSY IN LONDON NEED THE FIRST MOAT SINCE MEDIEVAL TIMES

If you google “London moats”, you’ll probably alight on a link which will take you to “London’s Top 10 Moats: A Spotter’s Guide”. We had no idea there were so many and could only think of the “obvious” one surrounding the Tower of London, even if it’s waterless these days. According to the guide, a defensive ditch has surrounded the Tower since its origins in the eleventh century. The moat, which contained water from the thirteenth century until the 1840s, helps to protect the roughly cuboid “White Tower” keep, which gives the Tower of London its name. Built by William the Conqueror in 1078, the White Tower was resented as a symbol of oppression inflicted on London by the new ruling elite.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is "power projection", writ large, in Architecture; ugly, impersonal, cold, hostile,ruthless, and heartless, just as is the American deep state and its agenda.

This... is the kind of architecture signed off on by a government both terrified of its own people figuring out what it has done, with their money, and in their name, and terrified of the people around the world who are furious at the US government having expropriated their resources, to which this government has no moral right.

REPORT: RICH TO GET STILL RICHER AS WORLD INEQUALITY GROWS

Global inequality has stabilized at high levels in recent years, a report said Friday, despite gains among the poor in China and much milder disparities in incomes and wealth in Western Europe.

The World Inequality Report 2018 is based on a massive, interactive collection of data compiled by an international team of researchers that includes renowned economists Thomas Piketty and Emmanuel Saez.

It shows inequality has soared since 1980 although the global top “1 percent” saw their share of global income slip slightly after the 2008 financial crisis, to just above 20 percent. At the same time, the share of global income going to the bottom 50 percent rose slightly, to just under 10 percent, thanks to gains in populous, fast-growing China and India.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mike and I consistently advocate for completely peaceful protests, as are protected under the Constitution and Bill of Rights; anything else in this country will cause the American Deep State to respond with removal of said protesters with extreme, and lethal, prejudice.

And I am talking about assassinations of unarmed citizens: yes, the American government will do this.

Nobel Laureate 'Discovers' Cause Of Opioid Crisis: Complete Economic Destruction Of The "White Working Class"

For several decades now the American Midwest has suffered from unprecedented economic decay courtesy of a persistent outsourcing of manufacturing jobs in the automotive and steel industries, among others. As we've noted frequently, that economic decay has resulted in a devastating surge in opioid overdoses that claim the lives of 100s of people each year.

Of course, many attribute Trump's staggering victories in states like Michigan, Wisconsin, Ohio and Pennsylvania to his efforts to tap into the frustration of the dispossessed Midwest masses by promising a rebirth of the manufacturing economy that once provided them a solid middle-class lifestyle.

That said, no economic crisis is truly "discovered" until an Ivy League, Nobel-prize-winning economist says it is. As such, we present to you the intriguing findings of Nobel Laureate Angus Deaton who said he was "looking for something else" when he noticed a staggering increase in white mortality rates for people aged 50-54.

WEAPONS WENT FROM THE CIA TO ISIS IN LESS THAN TWO MONTHS, NEW STUDY REVEALS

Mainstream media in 2013: "Conspiracy Theorists!"
Mainstream media in 2017: "ISIS Got a Powerful Missile the CIA Bought!"
Years late to the party, mainstream media outlets like USA Today, Reuters, and Buzzfeed are just out with "breaking" and "exclusive" stories detailing how a vast arsenal of weapons sent to Syria by the CIA in cooperation with US allies fuelled the rapid growth of ISIS. Buzzfeed's story entitled, Blowback: ISIS Got A Powerful Missile The CIA Secretly Bought In Bulgaria [4], begins by referencing "a new report on how ISIS built its arsenal highlights how the US purchased munitions, intended for Syrian rebels, that ended up in the hands of the terrorist group."

Webmaster's Commentary:

New Russian Hacker Claims Putin Ordered Theft Of Clinton's Email, After First One Refused FBI Bribe To Lie

A Russian hacker has reportedly confessed that he hacked the DNC and stole Hillary Clinton's emails under the direction of Russia's Federal Security Service (FSB), claims Russian news outlet The Bell. Konstantin Kozlovsky - a Russian citizen with a hacker group called Lurk, confessed to the theft during a hearing about his arrest in August, along with a handwritten letter in which he admits to acting on the orders of an FSB agent he referred to as "Ilya."

Sound familiar?

In May, another Russian hacker claimed US officials offered him cash, citizenship and an apartment if he would accept responsibility for hacking the DNC and stealing Clinton's emails - which he refused, and was then arrested by the FBI under the lead of former Director James Comey.

Jim Stone Absolutely NAILS The Alabama Election...Complete FARCE And Corruption....

I am sure by now everyone out there has seen the clear and sympathetic yet blatantly fraudulent explanation for how Moore lost. The explanation, which has been given by some MSM and even many "friendly" alt media types goes like this:

"People just could not get past the slander and believed he actually did it, and conservatives just could not bring themselves to put a molester in office". "So not enough conservatives went out and voted, and with such a high number of blacks voting, Moore lost".
