Navy Officer Heads To Prison for mishandling classified information in an attempt to impress women.

Naval officer Lt. Cmdr. Edward C. Lin will serve six years in prison for mishandling classified information in an attempt to impress women.

The end result of the case is somewhat different from what was first reported by media outlets. Rather than being an international spy case, it turns out that Lin was not intentionally handing over secrets to foreign governments.

“While this case didn’t turn out to be related to foreign intelligence — not really a ‘spy’ case — the sentence sends a strong message to the force about taking care to safeguard classified and sensitive information,” Rob Bracknell, a Marine veteran and military lawyer, told USNI News.

“It also invites comparison to other more high profile classified and sensitive information cases in Washington, and it may be fair criticism that senior folks are handled with kid gloves compared to rank and file personnel,” Bracknell added.

CIA Official: Innuendo On Russian Connections Is NOT Substitute For Facts (Video)

It is abundantly clear to anyone with a functioning brain by now that the mainstream media is totally and absolutely biased against Trump. Their persistence at shoving the Russian conspiracy narrative down our collective throats borders on the insane, and more and more people are getting sick and tired of it. Case in point, former acting CIA director Michael Morell, himself a vociferous Trump critic.

In the following video, Right Wing News looks at Michael Morell’s statements on the role of the media in distorting the facts. Speaking about the latest story in the Russian conspiracy narrative, the alleged ‘backchannels between Kushner and the Russians’, Morell emphatically states that “That is not a sourcing chain in which I would put a great deal of confidence,”. When even diehard Trump critics are criticizing the mainstream media, you know that objectivity in the media has been well and truly lost.

War crimes suit filed in Switzerland against former Israeli minister

The Office of the Attorney General of Switzerland has confirmed that it is examining a criminal complaint against former Israeli foreign minister Tzipi Livni, accused of war crimes by a Geneva-based pro-Palestinian group. Livni recently traveled to Lugano in southern Switzerland for a celebration organised by the Swiss-Israel Association.

According to the Le Temps newspaper, Livni has been named in a legal suit filed on Monday by the Geneva-based Urgence Palestine activist group external link in relation to her role in the Israeli military's “Operation Cast Lead” in the Gaza Strip between December 2008 – January 2009. She was foreign minister and acting prime minister at the time.

The Attorney General’s Office external link confirmed to swissinfo.ch that this ‘[legal] request is presently being studied’.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Good on the Swiss, here!!

I hope that the principal investigative body doesn't knuckle under, or yield to Israeli pressure here.

Israel need to be made to understand that genocide is completely incompatible with any real notion of being a civilized society, and there will be sever international consequences and repercussions when it happens.

News Flash: People Who Own ‘Dont Tread On Me’ Flags Are Now “Racist” (Video)

As the scourge of PC culture continues to grow exponentially day by day, with ‘activists’ stating that white college professors are inherently racist just for existing, it is worth looking back at another event that shows the absolute insanity of PC culture. When even historically important symbols can be censored on the basis of previous racist undertones, at this rate it is only a matter of time before it becomes de facto censorship.

In the following video, Right Wing News takes a look back at a 2016 case about a man wearing an apparently offensive cap; not a MAGA cap but a Gadsden Flag. That’s the one with the coiled snake and the infamous ‘Don’t Tread On Me’ slogan that was first used during the Revolutionary War. And because the creator of the flag, Christopher Gadsden, owned slaves, that apparently makes it a symbol of white supremacy. Well, Thomas Jefferson owned slaves too, will the far left turn him into another racist symbol soon?

Trump Tweets: Calls For Courts To Allow Travel Ban After Latest U.K. Attack: “We Need To Be Smart, Vigilant And Tough”

News is still murky following a coordinated terrorist attack on London Bridge this evening. Early reports indicate that as many as five terrorist shouting “this is for Allah” drove a van into a crowd of people. The men emerged from the vehicle and began stabbing passers-by, killing at least two.

Heavily armed security response teams have secured the landmark British bridge and investigations are pending.

The attack follows a recent suicide bombing at an Aria Grande concerts catering to families.

Ex-FBI Director James Comey Must Cease and Desist In His Treason Against The United States – Seth Rich FBI Connection.

Do you think it is harsh of me to demand, as a United States citizen and voter, that Ex-FBI Director James Comey cease and desist in his treason against the United State of America? I will offer evidence to show why I demand such a thing of a delusional and treasonous agent working to undermine the government of the United States.

First of all, let me remind you he is no longer in good standing within this government. He was fired by President Donald Trump under the recommendation of the Assistant Director of the Justice Department, due to his incompetent, treasonous, and deadly judgment of allowing a criminal to go free after she allowed classified materials to be widely disseminated throughout the world to foreign powers.

Through this treasonous act she leaked the names of Intelligence operatives in the field – one is no longer alive to protest this treasonous act.

Why can’t Hillary let it go? Donald Trump’s not the only one still obsessing over the election

I’ve never run for president, but I imagine political losses of the magnitude suffered by Clinton are very hard to get over — and not just for the candidate. I personally know many people who voted for her who are still wandering around in a state of disbelief. For diehard supporters, the loss hurts in a visceral way that lingers.

But there comes a point when you just have to accept reality — and Clinton herself seems to be having a tough time with that. The Code interview offers pretty broad insight into Clinton’s psyche, nearly seven months on from the election.

UAE, Saudi campaign to end Qatar’s independence

As soon as the Arab show of unity with US President Donald Trump in Saudi Arabia had ended, a row broke out between US oil-producing allies that Trump had met and praised during his visit to the kingdom.

Three days after Trump and King Salman declared Iran to be the main sponsor of terrorism, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates accused Qatar of trying to undermine efforts to isolate the Islamic Republic. Saudi newspapers, clerics and even some celebrities attacked the Qatari Emir, Sheikh Tamim Bin Hamad Al-Thani, accusing him of “stabbing his neighbours with Iran’s dagger”, as they put it.

Analysts pointed out that Saudi Arabia and the UAE are striving to crush any opposition that seeks to weaken the united front against Iranian influence in the Middle East. Both countries are also exerting pressure on Qatar to end its support for Islamic movements such as the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas.

Sanctions, leaving military base ‘possible options against Qatar’

Qatar was under increasing pressure in Washington this week as Congressman Ed Royce and former Defense Secretary Robert Gates raised possible sanctions and the moving of the US military base out of the country if Doha does not change its ways.

The news comes after a recent diplomatic spat between Qatar and its Gulf neighbors, as well as signs of lukewarm relations between Doha and the Donald Trump administration.

Veteran diplomat Dennis Ross warns US may leave Qatar base

The Trump administration may be prepared to leave Al-Udeid air base in Qatar if Doha does not change certain policies, US diplomat Dennis Ross told Sky News Arabia on Wednesday.

“I wouldn’t be surprised at all if there’s some discussion internally in the Trump administration to make it clear to Qatar that if need be, we’re prepared even to move (from) the base,” said Ross, who served under former presidents George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton and Barack Obama.

Al-Udeid serves as a logistics, command and basing hub for US operations in Afghanistan and Iraq. Qatar spent more than $1 billion to construct the air base in the 1990s.

BLS B.S.: 93% Of New Jobs Since 2008 Were Birth/Death Model Estimates

A research report from Morningside Hill Capital sourced from Zerohedge shows that 93% of the jobs “created” since 2008 were Birth/Death model estimates. While some portion of those jobs were no doubt legitimately created, the issue is over-estimation of jobs created by new businesses net of jobs lost from failed businesses. As it turns out, most of the job growth that has been reported by the Government since 2008 – and which in turn fueled some massive stock rallies – never existed.

Russian special services arrest 18 ISIL fighters in Moscow

Federal Security Bureau officers arrested 18 ISIL militants in Moscow. The militants were supposedly preparing terrorist attacks in Moscow metro and in restaurants. A bomb was found in an apartment on Novoperedelkino Street, where four of the militants were arrested.

In addition, the FSB detected small ISIL bases in apartments on neighboring streets. All the apartments, where the detained individuals lived, could be viewed from each other's windows. Thus, the militants could open automatic fire on FSB officers during the special operation, or escape in time.

The Real Legacy of the US Wars in the Mideast — Never-Ending Debt

The longer U.S. troops remain in Iraq and Afghanistan, the greater the financial costs to the United States. Taken together, the cost of those wars could be as high as $6 trillion, including medical and disability care for vets and all their families and a host of other expenses such as rising interest charges on the debt that finances military operations.

The sobering analysis comes from a 2013 paper by Linda J. Bilmes of the Harvard Kennedy School, “The Financial Legacy of Iraq and Afghanistan: How Wartime Spending Decisions Will Constrain Future National Security Budgets.” Bilmes contends that the money spent on these wars since 2001 will “dominate future federal budgets for decades to come.”

Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Units (PMU), commonly known as Hashd al-Shaabi, has liberated al-Ba’aj District in Nineveh Province from the grip of the Daesh terrorist group.

The important area is located near the Syrian border. Al-Sumaria TV said the full liberation of Ba’aj and several nearby villages on Sunday came following fierce clashes with Daesh elements.

The fresh gain shrinks the area under the Daesh control in the border region between Iraq and Syria, where Daesh leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is believed to be hiding, according to Iraqi and US sources.

Uproar over Bill Maher's remarks continues — can he weather another controversy?

The Internet outrage machine continued to churn at a high gear Saturday in the wake of Bill Maher’s inexplicable use of a racial slur during the Friday night broadcast of his HBO show, “Real Time.”

On the program, Maher used the slur to refer to himself as a house slave during a discussion with Republican Sen. Bill Sasse of Nebraska. Sasse suggested that Maher should come to his district to work in the fields, which is when Maher responded with the term. “It’s a joke,” Maher said as the audience groaned.

As social media erupted with criticism of Maher, HBO released a statement on Saturday calling the remark "completely inexcusable and tasteless," and indicated that the segment would not be re-aired.

50th Anniversary of Israel’s Infamous USS Liberty Attack

On June 8, during Israel’s preemptive Six-Day War, an act of aggression, not self-defense against regional Arab states, the IDF did the unthinkable.

It provocatively attacked its main ally, striking the USS Liberty intelligence gathering ship, in international waters about 25.5 nautical miles northwest of Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula in international waters.

The incident took 34 US lives, another 171 wounded, the vessel severely damaged, lucky to stay afloat.

It was deployed to monitor belligerents’ communications in response to Israeli aggression on Egypt, Jordan, Syria and Iraq – not the other way around.

Theresa May says the internet must now be regulated following London Bridge terror attack

New international agreements should be introduced to regulate the internet in the light of the London Bridge terror attack, Theresa May has said.

The Prime Minister said introducing new rules for cyberspace would “deprive the extremists of their safe spaces online” and that technology firms were not currently doing enough.

The Prime Minister made the comments outside Downing Street on Sunday morning in the aftermath of the van and knife attack that saw seven people killed and dozens injured.

London attack shows too much tolerance for extremism in UK, May says
"We cannot allow this ideology the safe space it needs to breed - yet that is precisely what the internet, and the big companies that provide internet-based services provide,” Ms May said.

“We need to work with allies democratic governments to reach international agreements to regulate cyberspace to prevent the spread of extremist and terrorism planning.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Prime Minister May, a word, please.

Let me start by saying that as a Christian Pacifist Activist, I can never condone violence, ever.

But what of the violence visited upon those countries with resources which the US and UK have expropriated, to which they had utterly no moral right, and whose governments the US and UK have regime changed in order to obtain those resources, and made sure that they were only sold to specific countries, and only for specific currencies?!?

There are no excuses for what happened in London yesterday.

But Prime Minister May, it is hubristic, and disingenuously simplistic in the extreme, to imagine that even without the internet, there would not be blowback from the intense anger caused by these actions, and that this blowback would not, ultimately have horrific consequences.

My heart, soul, and prayers, are with the victims, their families, and their friends. Three of my family surnames are British; they are Yarbrough, Darling, and Rawson, so this is personal for me.

But radicalism of any stripe doesn't just come out of thin air; and if you, and the rest of those in British government serving the British people, are honest with yourself, you also understand this.

So in order to prevent this from becoming the "new normal" in the UK, here is what you and your government need to do.

First, get a consortium from all the great universities in the UK working together, on a very urgent project, to get forms of workable, practical renewable energy created, and patented by the UK government, with some revenue sharing for the universities that helped invent this (Can you imagine what a revenue stream something like THAT would create for the UK?!?)

You have some of the greatest scientific minds on the planet located in the UK; USE THEM!!

This will mean you no longer will have to regime change; invade; or expropriate energy resources anywhere on the planet, ever again.

Withdraw your troops from wherever they are on the planet, except as defense in the UK; use some of the money from that patent to help to heal countries your geopolitical policies have destroyed, like Yemen; Libya; Afghanistan; and Somalia. No geopolitical violence; no counter-violence.

You have the opportunity to have the UK become a trail-blazer for both peace, and the development of alternative energy, which can change the world in a positive way, Prime Minister May. In the Chinese language, the ideogram for "crisis" and "opportunity" is one in the same.

Please seize the opportunity.

STUDY BY MIT ECONOMIST: U.S. HAS REGRESSED TO A THIRD-WORLD NATION FOR MOST OF ITS CITIZENS

America divided – this concept increasingly graces political discourse in the U.S., pitting left against right, conservative thought against the liberal agenda. But for decades, Americans have been rearranging along another divide, one just as stark if not far more significant – a chasm once bridged by a flourishing middle class.

Peter Temin, Professor Emeritus of Economics at MIT, believes the ongoing death of “middle America” has sparked the emergence of two countries within one, the hallmark of developing nations. In his new book, The Vanishing Middle Class: Prejudice and Power in a Dual Economy, Temin paints a bleak picture where one country has a bounty of resources and power, and the other toils day after day with minimal access to the long-coveted American dream.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am seeing how this is playing out on Oahu, and it is not pretty. There are far more homeless than I remember when we arrived here, 20 years ago, and many more panhandlers.

And because we understand how food insecurity is hitting many low income families, and particularly their kids, we contribute to two food bank programs, both co-sponsored by my local church, and in conjunction with a local Catholic church. By the time public funds for food run out (which is usually the third week of the month), there is a "gap" of about a week where these food insecure families cannot buy food, even if they are the wisest, and most careful, of shoppers.

Kids cannot learn if their tummies are growling, because they are hungry.

The way the elementary school program is handled, the kids, who have been certified by the state as coming from food-insecure families, are called away from their classes, and given back packs, filled with basic supplies, like pasta, dried milk, and canned fruits and veggies, to fill the gap. There are a lot of kind-hearted volunteers at both churches who make this happen.
