US Troops Taught For Years Child Sex Abuse Is ‘Culturally Accepted’ In Afghanistan

U.S. troops deploying to Afghanistan were taught for years that child sex abuse is a “culturally accepted practice” in the country, and were provided no guidance that it constituted a violation of the law and human rights until late 2015.

A new Pentagon inspector general report reveals that although troops weren’t explicitly discouraged from reporting cases of child sex abuse, the issue was not discussed until numerous media outlets reported that troops were encouraged to ignore local Afghan officials abusing little boys.

Interviews of troops from the report suggest that military officials didn’t really care much about stopping child sex abuse.

Plague spreads to dozens of health workers amid fears Madagascar CAN’T contain black death

There are also fears the disease could develop a resistance to the antibiotics being used to treat victims, which would likely see the number of cases surge.

ALASKANS QUIETLY TOLD TO PREPARE FOR A NORTH KOREAN ATTACK

By now everyone is tired of threats from North Korea and the attention of the public has been diverted to other more “important” things, such as sexual harassment charges in Hollywood, against members of Congress, and against every man alive in the Continental U.S. The public is still focused on GQ’s “Man of the Year,” Colin Kaepernick, and the who the new “front man” is for the band Stone Temple Pilots.

Once again, the North Korean threat has been downplayed and deflected. So, how about in Alaska? Not quite the case there, according to an article in the Mirror entitled “Alaska urged to prepare for North Korean nuclear attack as residents told to have emergency stash of food and water,” by Michael Havis on 11/15/17. Here is an excerpt from that article:

“Alaska is being urged to prepare for a North Korean nuclear attack – amid fears that a warhead could reach residents in 20 minutes.”

The World’s First Space Nation Now Has A Satellite Flying Above The Earth

On November 12, Asgardia cemented its presence in outer space by launching the Asgardia-1 satellite. The nation is slowing coming to fruition.

The “nanosat” is roughly the size of a loaf of bread and undertook a two-day journey from NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia, the United States, to the International Space Station (ISS). It contains 0.5 TB of data belonging to 18,000 of Asgardia’s citizens, such as family photographs, as well as digital representations of the space nation’s flag, coat of arms, and constitution. While Asgardia’s citizens will remain based on earth, for the time being, the satellite launch brings the nation one step closer to space.
Asgardia-1 made its journey to the ISS aboard the OA-8 Antares-Cygnus, a NASA commercial cargo vehicle.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I want to join, and become a citizen of Asgardia!

Alaska Prepares For War With North Korea: Missiles Will Take Only 20 Minutes To Reach The State - Mac Slavo

Emergency planners in Alaska have warned it will not attempt evacuations if a warhead is fired because time would not be on their side. Jeremy Zidek, from the state’s disaster planning team, will urge locals to find shelter rather than risk being caught in the open. He also urged families to have an emergency stash of food and water, flashlights and radios, and medical supplies including the anti-radiation pill Prussian Blue – medication that lessens the radiological impacts on your body.

The Last Time These 3 Ominous Signals Appeared Simultaneously Was Just Before The Last Financial Crisis - Michael Snyder

We have not seen a “leadership reversal”, a “Hindenburg Omen” and a “Titanic Syndrome signal” all appear simultaneously since just before the last financial crisis. Does this mean that a stock market crash is imminent? Not necessarily, but as I have been writing about quite a bit recently, the markets are certainly primed for one. On Wednesday, the Dow fell another 138 points, and that represented the largest single day decline that we have seen since September. Much more importantly, the downward trend that has been developing over the past week appears to be accelerating. Just take a look at this chart. Could we be right on the precipice of a major move to the downside?

John Hussman certainly seems to think so. He is the one that pointed out that we have not seen this sort of a threefold sell signal since just before the last financial crisis. The following comes from Business Insider…

Identity of Secret Informant In FBI’s Clinton Probe Unveiled

More information about the Congressional probes into the Obama-era Uranium One deal leaked out Thursday when Reuters reported that Senate Republicans say their investigation into the Clinton’s role in approving the deal largely hinges on the testimony of a secret informant who was until recently the subject of a federal gag order.

But a month after Trump asked the DOJ to lift the gag order - a command that the DOJ promptly obeyed - the man has decided to speak out publicly for the first time in an interview with Reuters.

His name is Christopher Campbell, and was formerly a lobbyist for Tenex, the US-based arm of Rosatom, the Russian government’s nuclear agency.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I sure hope to heck this guy doesn't "get depressed", or start flying in small airplanes; I would imagine that his testimony will be the lynchpin for any possible indictment of Hillary Clinton.

Saudi Arabia Offers Arrested Royals A Deal: Your Freedom For Lots Of Cash

As we noted shortly after the Crown Prince’s purge of potential rivals within Saudi Arabia’s sprawling ruling family, while the dozens of arrests were made under the pretext of an "anti-corruption crackdown", Mohammed bin Salman’s ulterior motive was something else entirely: Replenishing the Kingdom’s depleted foreign reserves, which have been hammered for the past three years by low oil prices, with some estimating that the current purge could potentially bring in up to $800 billion in proceeds.

Furthermore, the geopolitical turmoil unleashed by the unprecedented crackdown helped push oil prices higher, creating an ancillary benefit for both the kingdom’s rulers and the upcoming IPO of Aramco.

And, in the latest confirmation that the crackdown was all about cash, the Financial Times reports today that the Saudi government has offered the new occupants of the Riyadh Ritz-Carlton a way out.... and it’s going to cost them: In some cases, as much as 70% of their net worth.

China prepares for 2020 tests of 27,000mph hypersonic aircraft that could hit the US with nuclear warheads in just 14 MINUTES

China is developing aircraft capable of reaching US shores with nuclear warheads in just 14 minutes, reports suggest.

The craft will be capable of hypersonic flight speeds of up to 27,000 miles per hour (43,200 kmh) - 35 times the speed of sound.

They will be tested in China's newest military-grade wind tunnel, set to be the world's fastest hypersonic facility when construction is complete 'by 2020', experts claim.

Currently, the world's most powerful wind tunnel is the US LENX-X facility in Buffalo, New York, which operates at speeds of 22,000 miles per hour (36,000 km/h).

Revealed – Saudis Plan to Give Up Palestine – For War on Iran

The left-wing Lebanese paper Al-Akhbar has obtained a copy of the plan (Arabic) in form of a memorandum by the Saudi Foreign Minister Adel Al-Jubeir to the Saudi clown prince Mohammed Bin Salman (English machine translation):

The document, which is being unveiled for the first time, proves all that has been leaked since President Trump’s visit to Saudi Arabia last May on the launch of US efforts to sign a peace treaty between Saudi Arabia and Israel. This was followed by information on the exchange of visits between Riyadh and Tel Aviv, the most important being the visit of the Saudi Crown Prince to the Zionist entity.The document reveals the size of concessions that Riyadh intends to present in the context of the liquidation of the Palestinian issue, and its concern to get in return the elements of power against Iran and the resistance, led by Hezbollah.

The Saudi foreign ministry memo starts by laying out its strategic perspective:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF, in fact, this report is true, Palestinian leadership has to understand the level and depth to which they have been deceived and betrayed, by Saudi, American, and Israeli leadership.

Bahrain says deadly bus attack engineered by Iran

Bahrain said on Wednesday a bomb attack on a police bus which killed an officer and wounded nine last month was carried out by a militant cell trained by its arch-foe Iran.

After authorities quashed Shi‘ite Muslim-led ”Arab Spring” protests on the Sunni-ruled island in 2011, militants have launched deadly bombing and shooting attacks against security forces that Bahrain blames on Tehran’s Shi‘ite theocracy.

Iran denies any role in Bahrain’s unrest.

There was no immediate Iranian reaction to Wednesday’s Bahraini interior ministry statement, which added that authorities had arrested one member of the cell while others were fugitives in Iran.

“The terrorist cell received extensive training in Iranian Revolutionary Guard camps on the use and manufacture of explosives and firearms, as well as material and logistical support,” the ministry said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And of course, the Sunni government of Bahrain, with a human rights record just to the right of that of Attila the Hun, couldn't possibly have any of its predominanly Shiite population be the least bit upset, whatsoever, at its complete repression of its citizens' basic human rights, could it?!?

The Bahrainis LOVE their government, particularly as it tortures confessions out of peaceful protestors who are simply asking for a constitutional monarchy; throws them into prisons for inordinantely long sentences for crimes they did not commit; and denies their humanity, simply because they practice a different version of Islam than that of the Al Khalifa monarchy.

What could POSSIBLY go wrong here, with these horrifically lousy situations, except everything?!?

China sending special envoy to North Korea days after Trump's visit

Following President Trump’s visit to Beijing, China said Wednesday that it would send a high-level special envoy to North Korea amid an extended chill in relations between the neighbors over Pyongyang’s nuclear weapons and missile programs.

Song Tao, the head of China’s ruling Communist Party’s International Department, will travel to Pyongyang on Friday to report on outcomes of the party’s national congress held last month, the official Xinhua News Agency said.

Xinhua said Song, as president and party leader Xi Jinping’s special envoy, would carry out a “visit” in addition to delivering his report, but gave no details about his itinerary or meetings. It also made no mention of Trump’s trip to Beijing or the North’s weapons programs, although Trump has repeatedly called on Beijing to do more to use its influence to pressure Pyongyang into altering its behavior.

17 million in Yemen need food - now hospitals and water pumps will run out of fuel in three weeks

THE UNITED NATIONS warned today that fuel supplies needed to run Yemen’s hospital generators and pump clean water will run out in less than three weeks unless the Saudi-led coalition lifts its blockade.
The dire forecast came as Yemen battles one of the world’s worst outbreaks of cholera, with nearly one million people infected. Some 2,200 people have died.
Adding to the woes of aid workers on the ground, stocks of diphtheria vaccines will be emptied in two weeks unless aid deliveries are once again allowed in the country, UN spokesman Farhan Haq said.

The Saudi-led military coalition shut down Yemen’s sea and air ports as well as borders on 6 November in response to a missile attack by the Iran-backed Huthi rebels near Riyadh.

UN aid chief Mark Lowcock warned last week that unless the blockade was lifted, Yemen will face “the largest famine the world has seen for many decades, with millions of victims.”

US to Continue Refueling Saudi Warplanes During Yemen Attacks

The US Air Force plans to keep refueling Saudi Arabian warplanes committing atrocities in Yemen that have led to the world’s most pressing humanitarian crisis, according to the United Nations.
The US House of Representatives voted overwhelmingly in support of House Resolution 599 Monday, passing the measure by a vote of 366-30. The bipartisan bill does not prevent US tankers from providing fuel to Saudi warplanes but does call for a political solution to the crisis, which House Democrats apparently saw as a compromise.

These same corporations, the heads of which have all had their consciences surgically removed before taking office, contribute generously to both parties, so why shouldn't the assassinations of Yemeni innocents continue, as long as they are profitable?!? That is the only thing that matters anymore in American society, profitability, right?!?

Revealed - Saudis Plan To Give Up Palestine - For War On Iran

The tyrants of Saudi Arabia developed a plan that sells away Palestine. They see this as necessary to get U.S. support for their fanatic campaign against their perceived enemy Iran.

An internal Saudi memorandum, leaked to the Lebanese paper Al-Akhbar, reveals its major elements. (Note: The genuineness of the memo has not been confirmed. In theory it could be a "plant" by some other party. But Al-Akhbar has so far an excellent record of publishing genuine leaks and I trust its editors' judgement.)

According to the memo the Saudis are ready to give up on the Palestinian right of return. They forfeit Palestinian sovereignty over Jerusalem and no longer insist of the status of a full state for the Palestinians. In return they ask for a U.S.-Saudi-Israeli (military) alliance against their perceived enemy on the eastern side of the Persian Gulf.

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko has met with U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs Aaron Wess Mitchell. The men discussed a wide variety of issues about bilateral Ukraine-U.S. ties, including efforts to support Ukraine in restoring its territorial integrity.

"Mitchell confirmed readiness to continue supporting efforts of Ukraine to restore its sovereignty and territorial integrity and, if necessary, to raise the price Moscow would pay for continuing aggression against the Ukrainian state," the Ukrainian president's website said on Wednesday.

"The sides emphasized the importance of new approaches and bold initiatives for the fleshing out of the strategic partnership between Ukraine and the United States - from the enhanced interaction in politics, trade, economy and energy to the strengthening of the partnership between the countries in the area of defense and security," the press service said.

As the late, and brilliant, Joan Rivers used to say, "Can we talk?!?"

Any veilled threat of forcing Crimea back to Ukraine is just complete and utter codswallop, wrapped in palatable language. Don't forget the following:

Washington Was Behind Ukraine Coup: Obama admits that US “Brokered a Deal” in Support of “Regime Change”

The article goes on to state:

"US President Barack Obama revealed the United States’ involvement in the Ukrainian crisis from its outset and admitted that the United States “had brokered a deal to transition power in Ukraine.”

US President Barack Obama’s recent interview with CNN’s Fareed Zakiria reveals the United States’ involvement in the Ukrainian crisis from its outset and that the country worked directly with Ukrainian right-wing fascist groups, experts told Sputnik.

On Sunday, in his interview with CNN, Obama admitted that the United States “had brokered a deal to transition power in Ukraine.”

“Obama’s statement is reiterating something that the world public opinion already knew — the US was involved in the coup of [ex-Ukrainian President] Viktor Yanukovych from the start. History shows us that the US has overthrown numerous governments in Latin America, Asia and Africa and replaced them with leaders that ruled with a fascist ideology that proved useful for Washington’s geopolitical interests,” independent researcher and writer Timothy Alexander Guzman told Sputnik.

Yanukovych’s decision to not sign an association agreement with the European Union in late 2013 triggered a mass wave of protests across Ukraine, culminating in the February 2014 coup. Following the transition of power, Kiev forces launched a military operation against those who refused to recognize the legitimacy of the new government."

What Crimea did, when they understood that there was no more legitimate government in Kiev, was to hold a referendum, asking its people if they wanted to stay with the regime-changed Ukraine, or petition the Russian Federation to become a member. Overwhelmlingly, in a free and fair referendum, they voted to petition the Russian Federation to become a member, and the Russian Federation accepted their request.

There was no "Russian annexation of Crimea" whatsoever; but the Crimean referendum was never accepted by the US or the West, hence, Russia got, and continues to get, punished for something it never did, period, end of discussion.

West Eyes Nuclear Deal-Style Missile Pact with Iran

President Emmanuel Macron's first visit of the Persian Gulf region to take part in opening ceremony of Louvre Abu Dhabi museum was not without sidelines. During his surprise visit to Saudi Arabia, Macron made anti-Iranian comments.

Talking to the Sky New Arabia news network, the French president took aim at the Iranian missiles program, claiming it to be source of “extremely strong concerns.” He added that there is a need to discuss with Iran its missile-related activities.

"It's not about showing any naivety towards Iran, it is about standing beside our allies, in particular the United Arab Emirates. But it is also about not having a diehard policy that could create imbalances or even conflicts in the region," the French leader was quoted as saying.

How China is defining the way governments manipulate their people via the internet

CHINA’S army of keyboard propagandists have set the standard for manipulating public opinion online — and a growing number of countries are trying the emulate the model.
The iconic image of a man holding his shopping while obstructing the path of a tank in China’s Tiananmen Square in 1989 became the defining image of China’s censorial government. But in the age of the internet, social media has become the front line in the Communist Party’s battle to control and suppress dissent.
The goverment’s so called keyboard army overwhelms social media sites with positive stories about the Communist Party — described by researchers as “cheerleading content” — to control the message and drown out criticism and negative stories about the regime.
The unofficial wing of the Chinese government responsible for the program is known as The 50 Cent Party. It allows just enough critical content to maintain the illusion of dissent while diverting attention towards positive propaganda.

DAKOTA ACCESS PIPELINE COMPANY PAID MERCENARIES TO BUILD CONSPIRACY LAWSUIT AGAINST ENVIRONMENTALISTS

THE PRIVATE SECURITY firm TigerSwan, hired by Energy Transfer Partners to protect the controversial Dakota Access pipeline, was paid to gather information for what would become a sprawling conspiracy lawsuit accusing environmentalist groups of inciting the anti-pipeline protests in an effort to increase donations, three former TigerSwan contractors told The Intercept.

For months, a conference room wall at TigerSwan’s Apex, North Carolina, headquarters was covered with a web-like map of funding nodes the firm believed it had uncovered — linking billionaire backers to nonprofit organizations to pipeline opponents protesting at Standing Rock. It was a “showpiece” for board members and ETP executives, according to a former TigerSwan contractor — part of a project that had little to do with the pipeline’s physical security.

Abbas: Salman’s Palestinian Poodle

We haven’t heard too many new outrages from Saudi Arabia in a few days. So perhaps the ambitious Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman is toning down his ambitions after the U.S. warned him he was going too far; or else he temporarily moderated himself preparing for a new onslaught on as yet unspecified targets.

Salman has been doing a lot of summoning of his rivals and satraps in order to apprise them who’s the new sheriff in town and demand broad obeisance. If he doesn’t like the answers he’s getting or doesn’t trust his interlocutors, he has them shipped off to the “spa” for a session with one of his royal masseurs, schooled in the art of relaxation techniques. Many of the royal rivals he arrested received such treatment.

But Salman has treated his foreign satraps a bit more gingerly.

Mugabe, who is 93, is the oldest serving head of state. Queen Elizabeth II of England trails narrowly behind at age 91. If the Mugabe regime does in fact crumble, the mantle will pass to the British monarch.

ISIS-linked propaganda poster threatens Christmas attack on the Vatican

An Islamic State-linked group has allegedly vowed to launch a Christmas terrorist attack on the Vatican. A propaganda poster depicted a jihadist driving a car at high speed towards St. Peter’s Basilica.

The menacing poster was released by the pro-Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) group known as Wafa Media Foundation. It was revealed on Tuesday by the SITE Intelligence Group, a Maryland-based company that tracks the online activity of the extremist organization. The words at the top of the poster, written in red, warn that the attack will take place at Christmas.

Mother of convicted ‘Boston Bomber’ says FBI framed sons, Americans the ‘real terrorists’

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has been convicted on all 30 counts relating to his alleged involvement in the April 2013 Boston Marathon bombing.

Dzhokhar and his deceased brother Tamerlan were accused of organizing and executing the attack which claimed the lives of three people and wounded hundreds of others.

But like most ‘official stories,’ the Boston Bombing is replete with holes and oddities which do not conform with the US government’s narrative.

Zubeidat Tsarnaeva, the mother of the alleged bombers, has accused the FBI of framing her sons for the attack. From the beginning, she has held that her sons are innocent and that the FBI itself is responsible for the bombing in Boston, using “fake blood” and crisis actors. “I am 100 percent sure this is a set up,” she told Russia Today, adding that the FBI had been watching and “controlling” her sons for several years preceding the attack in 2013.

SYRIAN WAR REPORT – NOVEMBER 16, 2017: FIERCE FIGHTING ERUPTS IN EASTERN GHOUTA

On November 15, Ahrar al-Sham officially declared a start of the operation to capture the Armored Vehicle Base and the nearby area from the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in Eastern Ghouta near Damascus.

Ahrar al-Sham, Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (formerly Jabhat al-Nusra, the Syrian branch of al-Qaeda) and Faylaq al-Rahman launched their advance on November 14. Since then, an intense fighting has been ongoing in the area.

However, the official Ahrar al-Sham offensive declaration means that this is not a limited effort. The ceasefire region in Eastern Ghouta collapsed.

On November 15, the SAA and its allies captured the villages of Hazm, Kikiyah, al-Arfa and Rabdah from Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) in northern Hama.

Ron DeSantis, the subcommittee’s chair, was among those attending the ZOA event – and among those members of Congress who stayed quiet last week as Klein directed his hatred at Muslims and Palestinians.

The World Anti-Doping Agency, the top international body overseeing anti-drug efforts in sports, has ruled that Russia remains “non-compliant” with its code, harming the country’s chances of competing in the Winter Olympics this February in South Korea.

At a meeting in South Korea’s capital on Thursday, WADA announced that it was unable to reinstate Russia’s national anti-doping agency, RUSADA, which was suspended after Russia was found to have run a massive state-sponsored coverup of doping by its athletes. Russia was subsequently partially barred from the Summer Olympics and entirely from the Paralympics in Rio de Janeiro in 2016.

Although the group itself masquerades as an apolitical NGO with absolutely no connections to the so-called “armed Syrian opposition” or any of the jihadist groups, this apparently isn’t the case.

The ex-chancellor also noted that the view that Russia allegedly intended to "annex the Baltics" is "absurd."

"In comparison with the US president, we can be happy that we have Putin in Russia," Schroeder said. This is not the first time Schroeder publicly supports President Putin - when, a number of years ago, asked by journalists what he considered to be the toughest job in the world - he replied, "the President of Russia."

We are in the process of investigating these false allegations to determine their origin and motivation. For instance, we have documented that the most recent accuser, Beverly Nelson, was a party in a divorce action before me in Etowah County Circuit Court in 1999. No motion was made for me to recuse. In her accusations, Nelson did not mention that I was the judge assigned to her divorce case in 1999, a matter that apparently caused her no distress at a time that was 18 years closer to the alleged assault. Yet 18 years later, while talking before the cameras about the supposed assault, she seemingly could not contain her emotions.

Mattis Distorts UN Resolutions Meaning to Justify US Presence in Syria

On Monday, Mattis said that US presence in Syria was legitimate because it was authorized by UN authorities to fight the Daesh terrorist group.

"By Mattis’ logic it would seem, the US military would be authorized to invade any country on earth, so long as we claimed there was one or two self-identified IS members in the country," former Army lawyer Major Todd Pierce told Sputnik. "So he’s claiming license for US military action anywhere in the world, basically at our own discretion, regardless of the human cost in collateral damage."

Pierce, who previously served as a lawyer in the US military’s Judge Advocate General (JAG) office pointed out that Mattis had distorted the clear meaning and specified authorization in the UN resolution.

"Without United Nations authorization to be in Syria, the United States has no legal authorization to be in Syria, as Syria certainly didn’t give the US permission," he said.

“Since the fall of the Berlin Wall, since our great victory over communist ideology…we’ve been on a strategic holiday, y’know ‘the end of history’ – we acted as if we are a hyperpower with nothing else to worry about,” Bannon told attendees at a Gatestone Institute event in New York City.

He pointed to recent developments in Beijing, specifically a recent three and a half hour speech by Chinese President Xi Jinping at the 19th Party Congress. He noted that, at the same time, a Brown University study found that since 2001 the cost of the global war on terror is $5.6 trillion.

How to Instantly Prove (Or Disprove) Russian Hacking of U.S. Election

It’s newsworthy that CIA head Mike Pompeo recently met with Bill Binney – who designed the NSA’s electronic surveillance system – about potential proof that the DNC emails were leaked rather than hacked.

It’s also noteworthy that the usual suspects – Neocon warmongers such as Max Boot – have tried to discredit both Binney and Pompeo.

But there’s a huge part of the story that the entire mainstream media is missing …

Specifically, Binney says that the NSA has long had in its computers information which can prove exactly who hacked the DNC … or instead prove that the DNC emails were leaked by a Democratic insider.

Remember – by way of background – that the NSA basically spies on everyone in America … and stores the data long-term.
