Putin Warns America "Has A False Sense That It Can Do Anything Without Consequences"

In the first episode of Stone’s hugely anticipated Showtime series, which aired Monday night, Russian President Vladimir Putin pulled no punches claiming US is to blame for the rise of Al-Qaeda and its late mastermind Osama bin Laden, which it empowered to fight Soviet troops in Afghanistan, adding that there is proof the CIA supported terrorists in Russia’s Chechnya.

Trump’s Lawyers Say Comey Leaked Info for MONTHS

Most shocking of all, we learned that it was Comey himself who “leaked” the memo of his claiming that Trump had requested that the FBI’s investigation into Michael Flynn be dropped. The claim wasn’t true – and if he wanted to, Trump could’ve just granted Flynn a pardon anyway. There would be no point in asking Comey to end the case.

Even more disturbing, however, wasn’t that Comey admitted to being the leaker (which Trump’s lawyer is suggesting was illegal), it’s that it likely wasn’t his only leak.

President Trump’s legal team may be prepared to show a trail of leaks to The New York Times by former FBI Director James Comey – dating back to at least March – in a pair of complaints set to be filed to the Justice Department inspector general and Senate Judiciary Committee, a source close to the team told Fox News.

Video: Syrian Army Reaches Border with Iraq, Strategic Implications, Failure of US Plan to Create a Buffer Zone Controlled by Western Backed Militants?

On June 9, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and its allied militia groups reached the border with Iraq in the area north of the US-led coalition garrisons at the village of At Tanf and Al Zquf. This advance dramatically changed the strategic situation in southeastern Syria and de-facto allowed the Syrian-Iranian-Russian alliance to win the race for the border with Iraq.

The key goal of the US-led coalition actions near the border was to prevent the SAA from linking up with the allied Popular Mobilization Units (PMU) operating in Iraq and to build a buffer zone controlled by Western-backed militant groups between the two countries.

The PMU is a major power in Iraq and an official part of the Iraqi Armed Forces. It’s currently conducting a large-scale operation against ISIS terrorists at own side of the border. The June 9 advance destroyed the US-led coalition’s plans.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder; in light of this debacle, what is the US government and military are really prepared to do now to regime-change Damascus?!?

The following, very troubling article appeared yesterday in sputniknews.com:

Poster bearing a portrait of President Bashar al-Assad: Is US Preparing for Assad's Removal Amid Strikes on Damascus' Allies?

The article goes on to state:

"Washington is harboring a plan for a new "color revolution" in Syria, seeking to oust Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and replace him with a pro-American submissive government, Russian Senator and intelligence veteran Igor Morozov told RIA Novosti.

The US is preparing a large-scale operation aimed at toppling Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and replacing him with a pro-American puppet regime, Russian Senator Igor Morozov, a member of the Federation Council's Foreign Affairs Committee, believes.

"The United States is making efforts to seize the strategic initiative in Syria by carrying out a 'color revolution' with the assistance of the armed forces; [they] are preparing an attack on Damascus to oust the current Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and install a submissive leadership in [Syria's] government," Morozov told RIA Novosti."

I hope to heck that Russian Senator Morozov is absolutely wrong on this; but unfortunately, just because a move is the most ham-fistedly, pig-headedly stupid move the US government can make, us utterly no guarantee that they will not do it.

Such a move will most probably lead to war with Russia.

Israeli DM: Al-Jazeera Is ‘Nazi-, Soviet-Style Propaganda’

Israeli officials have been eagerly backing regional hostility toward Qatar, and Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman has doubled down on that, accusing the Qatar-funded al-Jazeera network, the most popular news media outlet in the Middle East, of being “Nazi-, Soviet-style propaganda.”

Lieberman’s evidence for this was that al-Jazeera has often run stories critical of Israel, saying that such behavior doesn’t rise to the level of journalism. Ironically, al-Jazeera is historically the only Arab media outlet that has allowed Israeli officials on to tell their side of the story at all, with most outlets banning Israelis as a matter of course.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Israeli DM Lieberman, a word, please.

Your rant appears to be borne from desperation on the cusp of madness.

I have always found Al-Jazeera (English version) to be a reasonable, and responsible, voice for the Arab world, and the quality of its journalism is generally quite elevated.

Israel has, most generally, treated Palestinians in the occupied territories quite horrifically, and that reality cannot be disproven, even by such vicious, and logic-challenged, rants such as this.

Israel Cuts Gaza Electricity at Abbas’ Request

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas’ effort to cut electricity to the Gaza Strip as a means of “pressuring” Hamas to hand over control of the region to him is finally getting support from Israel’s security cabinet, which today signed off on a plan to cut exports to the Gaza Strip by 40%, meaning about 45 minutes less of electricity per day in a strip that already is in a state of blackout more than three-quarters of the time.

Abbas had originally sought a 100% cut in Gaza’s electricity, but Israel refused, citing humanitarian concerns. Even with this smaller cut, Israeli military advisers are warning a mounting humanitarian crisis in the Gaza Strip will likely escalate the level of violence along the Israeli border.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas has shown his true colors, and they are those of a monster, as someone who would ask that this electricity be cut to Palestinians for purely political purposes.

The following, related story from haaretz.com is deeply worrying:

Hamas warns: Israel's 'disastrous' new power cut would spark an explosion in Gaza

But perhaps, this kind of "explosion" is precisely what Tel Aviv wants to happen as the "excuse" for massive assassinations of Palestinians, as happened in Operation Cast Lead.

5,000+ NATO troops to take part in ‘Iron Wolf’ drills in Lithuania

NATO troops have begun a 10-day military exercise, Iron Wolf 2017, in Lithuania, as part of a broader series of maneuvers aimed at deterring Russian “aggression.” Around 5,300 troops from 10 NATO countries are set to take part
The maneuvers began Monday with opening ceremonies at military training grounds in Pabrade and Rukla (near Kaunas). The drills, which will last until June 23, are meant to test the capabilities of the German-led Forward Presence (eFP) Battalion Battle Group, also comprising soldiers from Belgium, the Netherlands and Norway. In July, Luxembourg will also contribute its forces to the group.

The exercises will be supervised by Lithuanian troops from the Iron Wolf Mechanised Infantry Brigade and the Žemaitija Brigade Motorized Infantry unit, who will plan and arrange defensive and offensive operations. The forces will practice coordination efforts and operating in populated areas.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Look for a possible false flag, to be blamed against Russia, when NATO does those exercises in the Suwalki Gap.

The timing (starting one week from Saturday, and ending next Monday), are absolutely perfect for the US 24 hour news cable, and the location is also absolutely perfect for some kind of "military mishap", to be blamed on Russia.

John Bull's Other Haters

[A to-the-point condensation of cold, hard facts regarding the Left's cognitive dissonance. Any one of them who possess a mind even partially able to examine the contradiction of his/her position must surely grasp such after reading this.}

The United Kingdom's new minority government is being maintained in power by Northern Ireland's Democratic Unionist Parity. Barely had the news emerged than the DUP, as we saw in the accompanying photo, instantly catapulted over previously reviled bogeypersons such as Katie Hopkins and Morrissey to become fashionable young London's latest two-minute hate. Two minutes, incidentally, is not an Orwellian allusion but the time between first hearing about them and painting up your placard. Brendan O'Neill in The Spectator:

One protester's comment summed up the flimsiness of the fury. 'I didn't know who the DUP were, I had to Google them,' he said. From Googling a party to railing against it in the space of minutes: the modern mindset summed up.

SYRIAN TROOPS MOVE CLOSER TO RAQQA AS THE US DROPS CHEMICAL WEAPONS ON THE CITY

RECENT VIDEO HAS EMERGED OF THE US DROPPING WHAT APPEARS TO BE TOXIC WHITE PHOSPHORUS MUNITIONS ON THE CITY.

The Syrian Arab Army has captured villages in Al-Raqqa Governorate for the first time since ISIS forced Syrian troops to abandon the region to terrorists in 2013.

Syria’s elite Tiger Forces have been making remarkable progress in the race to Raqqa while the United States is also trying to get a piece of the largely symbolic self-proclaimed capital of the so-called Islamic State.

Just as they had done in their Iraqi stronghold of Mosul, ISIS fighters in Raqqa have been fleeing the city with Deir ez-Zor being their primary destination.

This comes as the US planes have been filmed dropping what appears to be the illegal chemical weapon white phosphorus on the city.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Apparently, according to the current regime in DC, the infliction of hot, flaming death, by bombing with white phosphorous, which eats and devours flesh to the bone, is only a war crime when other countries do it.

I don't know about you, but I am very emotionally and morally tired of being a citizen of a country so thoroughly comfortable with committing war crimes around the planet.

I can assure you that the next set of images are horrifically, stomach-churningly graphic, but I think you really need to see some real-world examples of what is being done in your name, and with your tax dollars, in Syria.

Images: injuries from white phosphorous bombing

Sessions Asks Congress To Undo Medical Marijuana Protections

U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions is asking Congressional leaders not to renew a current federal law that prevents the Department of Justice from spending money to interfere with state medical marijuana laws.
“I believe it would be unwise for Congress to restrict the discretion of the Department to fund particular prosecutions, particularly in the midst of an historic drug epidemic and potentially long-term uptick in violent crime,” Sessions wrote in a letter to Republican and Democratic House and Senate leadership. “The Department must be in a position to use all laws available to combat the transnational drug organizations and dangerous drug traffickers who threaten American lives.”

The letter, sent to Capitol Hill last month, was shared with MassRoots by a Congressional staffer.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Remember what Deep Throat said, during the Watergate debacle?!?

"Follow the money!!"

This does make me wonder what a forensic accounting analysis of Session's financial statements would reveal about support from the tobacco, alcohol, and pharmaceutical industries has been for him, over the years, that he is making these bone-headed pronouncements about marijuana.

He is also doing an horrific disservice to our Vets, struggling with PTSD, where at has been shown that marijuana alleviates their symptoms far better, and with far less complications, than do prescription drugs.

There is absolutely no research I have read, indicating that marijuana, in any way, makes people violent.

THE NEXT FINANCIAL CRISIS HAS ALREADY ARRIVED IN EUROPE, AND PEOPLE ARE STARTING TO FREAK OUT

Did you know that the sixth largest bank in Spain failed in spectacular fashion just a few days ago? Many are comparing the sudden implosion of Banco Popular to the collapse of Lehman Brothers in 2008, and EU regulators hastily arranged a sale of the failed bank to Santander in order to avoid a full scale financial panic. Sadly, most Americans have no idea that a new financial crisis is starting to play out over in Europe, because most Americans only care about what is going on in America. But we should be paying attention, because the EU is the second largest economy on the entire planet, and the euro is the second most used currency on the entire planet. The U.S. financial system is already teetering on the brink of disaster, and this new financial crisis in Europe could turn out to be enough to push us over the edge.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And of course, American legislators have prevented American banks from having to deal with this kind of "economic trauma" because of the laws they have passed, preventing it.

US BANKS CAN ALREADY TAKE YOUR MONEY

PUTIN MEETS WITH ETHEREUM FOUNDER TO CREATE NATIONAL VIRTUAL CURRENCY

Two weeks ago, in our latest comparison of Bitcoin and its up and coming competitor, Ethereum, we said "step aside bitcoin, there is a new blockchain kid in town." Actually, we said that for the first time back in February when Ethereum was still trading in the low teens (the return on ETH since then is roughly 3000%), but the most recent glance provided some perspective on where the competition between the two largest cryptocurrencies may culminate, because according to at least two venture capitalists, the market cap of Ethereum - currently roughly $35 billion - and whose share of the market has been soaring, will surpass that of Bitcoin, at ~$43 billion although it changes by the second, sometime before the end of 2018.

Two things: first, at the current rate of gains in Ethereum market share (and loss in Bitcoin's), the inflection point between the two will come not in months, or weeks, but perhaps days.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This move, coupled with the stellar growth of this company, are worth keeping an eye on.

RUSSIA WARNS THE US TO NOT LAUNCH ANOTHER MILITARY STRIKE ON SYRIAN FORCES

According to Reuters, Russia has warned the U.S. not to attack Syrian-aligned troops again in the war-torn country. Reuters reports that Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov relayed the message to U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson in a phone call on Saturday — a phone call the U.S. reportedly initiated.
“Lavrov expressed his categorical disagreement with the U.S. strikes on pro-government forces and called on him to take concrete measures to prevent similar incidents in future,” the Russian Foreign Ministry said, as reported by Reuters.The U.S. has struck pro-Syrian troops numerous times in recent weeks and just recently shot down a Syrian drone — blatant acts of war against a sovereign nation. A Russian general also claimed that the U.S. may even be colluding with ISIS, allowing them safe passage to leave Raqqa as the U.S. military besieges the Syrian city.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I hope President Trump understands that he is playing with Russian fire, with this illegal intrusion on the war in Syria; but perhaps, that is just the point, to engage Syria and Russia so recklessly that Putin will have no choice but to respond militarily.

Unfortunately, just because a move isn't the most ham-fistedly, pig-headedly stupid thing the US government could do, is absolutely no guarantee that it will not do it.

It would be naive to think that the FDA endeavors to protect the public’s health as its primary focus. Indeed, that would be a conflict of interest, as it serves its master, the pharmaceutical industry. Has the Food and Drug Administration engineered a shortage of intravenous vitamin C as part of an overall attack on natural and non-toxic approaches to healing that compete with prescription drugs? An analysis by Natural Blaze would suggest that the answer is yes.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Absoflippinglutely unbelievable, but perfectly predictable, courtesy of the FDA.

The FDA has long since abandoned any pretense of existing to promote wellness on the part of US citizens, but only pharmaceutical corporate profit; and at this point, it's unrestrained "profit uber alles!!" for the big pharmaceutical companies it protects.

QATARI CURRENCY HITS 19-YEAR LOW AS DIPLOMATIC CRISIS DEEPENS

With increasing diplomatic and economic pressure from its Arab neighbors, Qatar’s national currency, the riyal, has reached its lowest exchange rate against the US dollar since 1998.
The Qatar Central Bank is currently trying to keep the riyal fixed at around 3.64 per dollar, but the Saudi-led boycott raises concerns that the regulator will have to weaken the currency.

“I don’t think there is any reason that people need to be concerned about what’s happening or any speculation on the Qatari riyal,” the Emirate’s finance minister, Ali Shareef Al Emadi, said in an interview with CNBC earlier this week.

“We have the assets and the security that we need. Our foreign assets and our foreign investment is more than 250 percent of our GDP. So we are very much comfortable. We know we can defend the currency or we can defend the economy,” he added.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Financial sanctions are frequently a prelude to war.

FOUR MEMBERS OF SPECIAL COUNSEL MUELLER’S TEAM INVESTIGATING RUSSIA-TRUMP COLLUSION EXPOSED AS HILLARY CLINTON DONORS

It’s hard to believe how long an wide Hillary Clinton’s tentacles stretch across Washington, but the former Presidential candidate who hatched the Russia election meddling story in order to deflect away from her pathetic loss to Donald Trump, has her fangs firmly dug into Robert Mueller’s Special Counsel team.

The Hill reports that four members of Mueller’s independent team investigating Trump-Russia collusion (whatever that even means) have all been contributors to Hillary Clinton’s and/or Barack Obama’s previous campaigns.

Michael Dreeben, who serves as the Justice Department’s deputy solicitor general, is working on a part-time basis for Mueller, The Washington Post reported Friday.

Dreeben donated $1,000 dollars to Hillary Clinton’s Senate political action committee (PAC), Friends of Hillary, while she ran for public office in New York. Dreeben did so while he served as the deputy solicitor general at the Justice Department.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The vengeful, hateful, despicable Clinton is nearly spitting blood to achieve a geopolitical assassination of Trump by the hands of others; but all that will do is put Mike Pence in the White House as President.

Call me silly, but I think that this attempted robo-recall of a duly elected President is going to bite her in a very tender part of the human anatomy, and soon.

THE DEAD GIVEAWAYS OF IMPERIAL DECLINE

Nothing is as permanent as we imagine--especially super-complex, super-costly, super-asymmetric and super-debt-dependent state/financial systems.

Identifying the tell-tale signs of Imperial decay and decline is a bit of a parlor game. The hubris of an increasingly incestuous and out-of-touch leadership, dismaying extremes of wealth inequality, self-serving, avaricious Elites, rising dependency of the lower classes on free Bread and Circuses provided by a government careening toward insolvency due to stagnating tax revenues and vast over-reach--these are par for the course of self-reinforcing Imperial decay.

Sir John Glubb listed a few others in his seminal essay on the end of empires The Fate of Empires, what might be called the dynamics of decadence.

VIDEO SURFACES OF SETH RICH NEIGHBOR’S TESTIMONY AS TO WHAT HE SAW THE NIGHT OF THE MURDER

Scott Roberts claimed to be Seth Rich’s neighbor…a neighbor who also identified Seth Rich moments after he was shot.

The Gateway Pundit reports…

Mueller says police walked Seth Rich past him after he was shot to identify him and said that Rich ‘didn’t even know he was shot’. He tried to comfort others at the vigil saying Seth Rich didn’t feel physical pain.

A vigil was held for slain DNC staffer, Seth Rich where Debbie Wasserman Schultz was also in attendance.

An eyewitness came forward saying, “I was there when he (Seth Rich) got shot and they walked him past me so that I could see him and identify him because I knew him in the neighborhood, and the police officer said, ‘he didn’t even know he was shot’.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This was a political assassination, pure and simple, in retaliation for the DNC understanding that Rich was the leaker to Wikileaks, and make others in the party realise that the penalty for "snitching" was sure and certain murder.

For the last quarter century or more, Western foreign policy has claimed to be guided by promotion of “democratic values,” among which none shines brighter than freedom of speech and the related freedom of the press. European Union institutions have repeatedly been quick to denounce authoritarian regimes in the greater European area for arrests or murders of journalists and for the shutting down of media outlets that crossed some government red line.

LITHIUM BOOM 2.0 – THE WORLD’S HOTTEST COMMODITY JUST GOT HOTTER

Lithium is the hottest commodity on the planet right now, and investors trying to profit from it don’t understand how to invest in it.

MOST ARE MAKING A CRITICAL MISTAKE and investing in the wrong companies.

That’s because, in this game, lithium GRADE is the key to profitability.

Why? First, lithium...

Lithium is the most important component of electric vehicles, high-energy batteries, power storage, a vast menu of consumer electronics—and even Nirvana-reaching drugs.

Even today’s hyper-growth EV industry is just the tip of the iceberg compared with where it's headed to. Bloomberg New Energy Finance predicts that 35% of all new vehicle sales by 2040 will be EVs, equivalent to 100 million units every year.

Tesla’s “halo effect” will make astute investors lifetime riches because that's 100 times greater than current production.

Climate change researchers cancel expedition because of climate change

A team of scientists had to abandon an expedition through Hudson Bay because of hazardous ice conditions off the coast of Newfoundland caused by climate change.

About 40 scientists from five Canadian universities were scheduled to use the icebreaker CCGS Amundsen for the first leg of a 133-day expedition across the Arctic. It's part of a $17-million, four-year project led by the University of Manitoba that looks at both the effects of climate change as well as public health in remote communities.

Their trip began May 25 in Quebec City, but due to bad ice conditions off the coast of Newfoundland, the icebreaker was diverted from its course to help ferries and fishing boats navigate the Strait of Belle Isle, said David Barber, a climate change scientist at the University of Manitoba and leader of the Hudson Bay expedition called BaySys.

Hillary Clinton and seven of her top aides have retained their State Department security clearances a year after the FBI concluded they were "extremely careless" handling sensitive information.

"The State Department confirmed that it is continuing to review the mishandling of classified information that passed through Secretary Hillary Clinton's unauthorized email server as she and seven former aides retain access to sensitive information," Grassley's office said.

Apple users beware! Developers are giving away the 'most sophisticated Mac spyware ever' that could allow hackers to takeover devices and demand cash ransoms

Computer security researchers from Alien Vault and Fortinet have discovered two pieces of malware, MacSpy and MacRansom, which target Apple Mac systems.

MacSpy allows users to monitor an infected system, capture passwords and other sensitive details through the use of key stroke logging, screenshots and clipboard contents.

MacRansom works in a similar manner to the WannaCry software that plagued computer systems around the world, including the NHS, last month.

It encrypts the contents of a user's computer and threatens to delete all of the information it contains, unless a ransom of 0.25 Bitcoins, around £530 ($684), is paid.

Cops: Illegal video shoot gets shot up, closed down

A video shoot on Detroit’s west side on Saturday night ended after police arrived and fired shots, believing they were breaking up an armed robbery.

While earlier information said three men involved in the shoot were arrested, an update Monday revealed that the men had only been detained for questioning and released.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Getting a film permit is very important, especially if you are filming on public property and ESPECIALLY if the scene involves any kind of violence, because the police are notified in advance that there will be car chases and gunshots and thus and such address and will leave you alone.

When I worked on LOST I had to shoot some background plates with a still camera from the top of the Dole cannery, something the production company didn't think required a permit, and I was briefly detained by Homeland Security.

Bitcoin wallet COINBASE now seizing accounts of Americans… users rage against “total ripoff” as their Coinbase accounts VANISH

The popular online Bitcoin wallet Coinbase has been routinely seizing accounts of users in Hawaii and Wyoming, effectively “stealing” their Bitcoins by locking them out of their accounts. A Natural News investigation confirms that Coinbase is citing obscure state laws in its decision to seize accounts of users in both states, yet the online wallet refuses to allow users to log in and change their state of residence if they move to another state.

In effect, Coinbase is “stealing” Bitcoins from users by locking them out of their own accounts, preventing them from accessing their Bitcoin balances even if they move to another state. Users are raging against the “ripoff” and the “theft” in user comments

"Nobody In Power Is Paying Attention To How Close We Are To The Edge"

Financialization is what happens when the people-in-charge “create” colossal sums of “money” out of nothing — by issuing loans, a.k.a. debt — and then cream off stupendous profits from the asset bubbles, interest rate arbitrages, and other opportunities for swindling that the artificial wealth presents. It was a kind of magic trick that produced monuments of concentrated personal wealth for a few and left the rest of the population drowning in obligations from a stolen future.

Citi Warns 'Inversion' Looms As Treasury Yield Curve Slumps To 8-Month Lows

Since The Fed began its 'tightening cycle' in December 2015, the Treasury yield curve (2s10s) has flattened dramatically, tumbling back today towards cycle lows (and well below Trump-election-hope lows). What is perhaps more worrisome is the historical trend strongly suggests this trend is far from over and an inverted yield curve looms.

Secret Service Says It Has No "Comey Tapes" Or Transcripts

In a development that may disappoint former FBI Director James Comey, and will certainly displease the press, the Secret Service said Monday that it doesn’t have any audio copies or transcripts of tapes recorded in the Trump White House, the Wall Street Journal reported.

“In response to your request, the Secret Service has conducted a reasonable search for responsive records,” the agency told WSJ. “It appears, from a review of Secret Service’s main indices, that there are no records pertaining to your request that are referenced in these indices.” Such records would typically be subject to the Presidential Records Act, and turned over to the National Archives and Records Administration at the end of a president’s time in office, a topic which gained prominence earlier today when an Illinois Rep. filed the "COVFEFE Act" to preserve all of Trump's tweets for records purposes.

WWIII FEARS: Putin deploys 'kill-all' anti-missile system in warning shot to North Korea

VLADIMIR PUTIN is deploying his new-state-of-the-art Buk-M3 missile defence system in eastern Siberia in response to concerns over war breaking out in North Korea.

The move follows a warning by US defence secretary Jim Mattis this week that Kim Jong Un's regime is the world's "most urgent and dangerous threat to peace and security".

The Buk-M3 has no match among Western armaments, according to Moscow which has expressed "profound concern" over recent North Korean missile launches which "serve to heighten tensions", with US warships already on patrol in the region.

ANTIFA At It Again: Leftist “Counter-Protester” Throws Urine On Conservative Journalist

Once Again, the far-left has shown that it has no respect for open discourse and civility. Everyone who disagrees with them, is fair game for their childish antics and violence.

Over the weekend, anti-sharia protests erupted in multiple US cities, whose members were quickly outnumbered by leftists counter-protesters. In Seattle, one Trump supporter approached the counter-protesters, and was glitter bombed, sprayed with silly string, and swarmed by a mob of ANTIFA thugs, one of whom can be heard shouting “beat his ass!”

Watch: Bernie Sanders Disqualifies Nominee Over His Christian Beliefs In Violation Of The Constitution

Leftists act like they are so tolerant of everyone regardless of race, color, or creed, but it’s often the case that just beneath the surface of their lofty rhetoric, is a deep disdain for certain groups. This is especially true when it comes to religion. If you criticize Islam for instance, they’ll hound you relentlessly for being intolerant, and in the same breath they’ll characterize all Christians as hateful and oppressive. In their minds, Islam must always get a pass, while Christianity must be suppressed at every turn.

Bernie Sanders is certainly guilty of this kind of hypocrisy. During a recent Senate hearing Sanders hounded Russel Vought, President Trump’s nominee for the Office of Management and Budget. But Sanders’ criticism had nothing to do with Vought’s political or economic opinions. Instead, he made the bizarre decision to attack Vought’s Christian faith, and his belief that only Christians can go to heaven.

Is US Preparing for Assad's Removal Amid Strikes on Damascus' Allies?

The US is preparing a large-scale operation aimed at toppling Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and replacing him with a pro-American puppet regime, Russian Senator Igor Morozov, a member of the Federation Council's Foreign Affairs Committee, believes.

"The United States is making efforts to seize the strategic initiative in Syria by carrying out a 'color revolution' with the assistance of the armed forces; [they] are preparing an attack on Damascus to oust the current Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and install a submissive leadership in [Syria's] government," Morozov told RIA Novosti.

‘Chemical straightjackets’: Missouri sued for overmedicating foster kids

Administrators in Missouri’s foster care system failed to monitor and oversee the use of psychotropic drugs on foster children, according to a lawsuit filed by two children’s watchdog groups.

The complaint argues the drugs were used often to sedate children to control behavior and left them exposed to risk of side effects, from diabetes to seizures.

AN INTERESTING ALTERNATIVE VIEW OF U.S. FOREIGN POLICIES

For many years, I have been reading — but not yet citing as documentation for my own articles regarding U.S. international policies — the voltairenet news-site, which interprets events from a pro-Syrian-government, and pro-Russian-government, perspective.

Comey got 'steely silence' after confronting Loretta Lynch about Clinton's email probe

Ex-FBI Director James Comey has privately told members of Congress that he had a frosty exchange with Obama Attorney General Loretta Lynch last year when he confronted her about possible political interference in the Hillary Clinton email investigation after showing Lynch a sensitive document she was unaware the FBI possessed, according to sources who were directly briefed on the matter.

During his testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee last Thursday, Comey alluded to the exchange after publicly discussing an encounter with Lynch, where she ordered him not to refer to the criminal probe of Clinton’ handling of classified emails not as an “investigation” but rather as a “matter.” He suggested it smacked of political spin rather than the way professional law enforcement officers talk.

This is how Trump can tackle his economic ‘to do’ list

Donald Trump has an economic “to do” list — tax cuts, spending increases, paying for The Wall, renegotiating trading deals and creating jobs.

I believe he’s going to have trouble accomplishing all these things. Here’s why.

The US is already $20 trillion in debt and last year’s deficit grew that staggering total by nearly $600 billion — those are the irrefutable and inconvenient facts.

That makes traditional cures for the economic blahs, like spending more and lowering interest rates, unable to be properly administered. You can’t spend more and lower rates when you are already broke and borrowing costs are already ultra-low.

Cash-strapped Houston sells off $2M worth of city streets

The city of Houston held a yard sale of sorts last week, dusting off some possessions it doesn't use anymore and offering them for sale or swap to its neighbors.

In this case, City Council approved selling or swapping almost $2 million worth of city streets and utility easements. That won't correct the more than $100 million budget deficits city officials project for the next five years, but it's not peanuts.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The city government does not own those streets. The taxpayers do!

Texas revives transgender 'bathroom bill' for public schools

A transgender "bathroom bill" reminiscent of one in North Carolina that caused a national uproar now appears to be on a fast-track to becoming law in Texas — though it may only apply to public schools.

A broader proposal mandating that virtually all transgender people in the country's second-largest state use public restrooms according to the gender on their birth certificates sailed through the Texas Senate months ago. A similar measure had stalled in the House, but supporters late Sunday night used an amendment to tack bathroom limits onto a separate and otherwise unrelated bill covering school emergency operation plans for things like natural disasters.
