THOUGHT FOR THE DAY!

"The Party seeks power entirely for its own sake, We are not interested in the good of others; we are interested solely in power. Not wealth or luxury or long life or happiness: only power, pure power... We are different from all the oligarchies of the past, in that we know what we are doing. All the others, even those who resembled ourselves, were cowards and hypocrites. The German Nazis and the Russian Communists came very close to us in their methods, but they never had the courage to recognize their own motives. They pretended, perhaps they even believed, that they had seized power unwillingly and for a limited time, and that just round the corner there lay a paradise where human beings would be free and equal. We are not like that. We know that no one ever seizes power with the intention of relinquishing it. Power is not a means; it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship. The object of persecution is persecution. The object of torture is torture. The object of power is power." -- from George Orwell's 1949 novel "1984"

Confronting the Unspeakable

They house people in deathtraps. They poison the drinking water. They financialize and corrupt almost every otherwise beneficial social institution from public education to healthcare. They foment endless wars for the pursuit of their own power and profits.

They have the courts pronounce their soulless corporations as ‘people,’ while people themselves are judged to be of little consequence in comparison, to be thrown aside as if they were trash.

They catch the unsuspecting within the jaws of stagnant wages and corporate monopolies, and squeeze until there is nothing left.

This is the return of the anti-human madness. This is the Unspeakable.

The Media are Lying about the Details of Poland, Hungary and the Czech republic Refusing Migrants – The Truth is Much, Much Worse

The European Union is taking Poland, Hungary and the Czech Republic to court for refusing to take 160,000 migrants in under an agreement made in 2015. They are looking at a fine of 250,000 Euros per migrant. But what is not being reported is the fact that these three countries ARE taking migrants, but only those that do not Fail basic vetting.

ISLAMIC STATE: THE GENESIS OF A SECTARIAN FRANKENSTEIN

Since the beginning of the Syrian conflict in August 2011 to April 2013, the Islamic State and al-Nusra Front were a single organization that chose the banner of “Jabhat al-Nusra.” Although the current al-Nusra Front has been led by Abu Mohammad al-Julani but he was appointed [1] as the emir of al-Nusra Front by Abu Bakr al Baghdadi, the leader of Islamic State, in January 2012. Thus, al-Julani’s Nusra Front is only a splinter group of the Islamic State, which split from its parent organization in April 2013 over a leadership dispute between the two organizations.

U.S. TORTURE, A SAUDI COUP AND ISIS CRIMES - "BY, WITH AND THROUGH ALLIES"

Hundreds of men swept up in the hunt for al-Qaida militants have disappeared into a secret network of prisons in southern Yemen where abuse is routine and torture extreme — including the “grill,” in which the victim is tied to a spit like a roast and spun in a circle of fire, an Associated Press investigation has found. Senior American defense officials acknowledged Wednesday that U.S. forces have been involved in interrogations of detainees in Yemen but denied any participation in or knowledge of human rights abuses. ...

Senate Health Care Bill Includes Deep Cuts to Medicaid

Senate Republicans, who have promised a repeal of the Affordable Care Act for seven years, took a major step on Thursday toward that goal, unveiling a bill to cut Medicaid deeply and end the health law’s mandate that most Americans have health insurance.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Ending the mandate that one MUST have health insurance is a good thing. It will force the health insurance companies to make their products attractive to consumers with lower rates and lower deductibles. A lot of people who were forced to buy "Obamacare compliant" policies wound up being severely hurt by them financially (including yours truly).

Church ‘colluded’ with bishop to conceal his ‘sadistic’ sex crimes – report

Senior figures in the Church of England (CoE) have been found guilty of “colluding” with a former bishop jailed for a string of sexual offenses on young men and teenagers over a period of two decades.

Former Bishop of Lewes and Gloucester Peter Ball was jailed for 32 months in October 2015 after admitting to sexually abusing 18 people aged 17-25 while in service.

Ball, described as a “sadistic sexual predator” by his victims, even admitted to abusing a 12-year-old. He was released in February after his sentence was shortened to 16 months.

The Left Has One More Argument: Kill Them!

Prominent liberals repeatedly tell us, with deadly seriousness, that Trump and his supporters are: "Hitler," "fascists," "bigots," "haters," "racists," "terrorists," "criminals" and "white supremacists," which is then followed by liberals physically attacking conservatives.

To talk about “both sides” being guilty of provocative rhetoric is like talking about “both genders” being guilty of rape.

Nearly every op-ed writer at The New York Times has compared Trump to Hitler. (The conservative on the op-ed page merely called him a “proto-fascist.”) If Trump is Hitler and his supporters Nazis, then the rational course of action for any civilized person is to kill them.

UAE has secret torture prisons in Yemen, US involved in interrogations – AP

The UAE operates a network of ‘black sites’ in war-torn Yemen, where terrorist suspects are abused and tortured, an AP investigation has found. US personnel have been involved in at least some interrogations, agency sources said.

There are at least 18 clandestine prisons across southern Yemen operated by the United Arab Emirates (UAE) or by Yemeni forces created and trained by the Arab nations, AP reported on Thursday. A number of the estimated 2,000 detainees there are subjected to abuse and torture and have no legal protection, sources from the agency said.

Hillary Clinton as unpopular today as she was last year

Seven months after the election, Hillary Clinton remains as unpopular today as she was after November's election, a new poll found.

According to Gallup, Americans' views of the Democratic presidential candidate remain unchanged, as 41 percent of people said they have a favorable view of Clinton, who challenged President Trump in last year's presidential race.

Clinton's favorability has remained unchanged over the last seven months, Gallup reported, with 43 percent of Americans saying they had a positive view of the 2016 presidential candidate in November. Her favorability dropped to 41 percent in December, and has been the same since then.

With the exception of Clinton, losing presidential candidates over the last 25 years have seen a boost of at least 4 percentage points in their favorability after the election, according to previous Gallup polls.

UK population explosion: 65.6 million now live here in sharpest annual rise since 1947

BRITAIN'S population has seen its sharpest increase in nearly 70 years largely as a result of mass immigration, official figures showed today.

Data showed there were an estimated an estimated 65,648,000 people living in the country at the end of June last year.

Over the 12 months to the middle of 2016, the number of inhabitants went up by 0.8 per cent or 538,000. It was an increase roughly equivalent to the population of Bradford.

In numerical terms the total represented the largest rise since the 551,000 increase record in the 12 months to mid-1947, a surge cause mainly by the post-war baby boom.

US Navy ballistic missile intercept test fails

The U.S. Navy conducted a failed ballistic missile intercept Wednesday with its SM-3 Block IIA off the coast of Hawaii.

The destroyer John Paul Jones, running the Navy’s top-of-the-line Aegis Baseline 9.C2 combat system, failed to intercept a medium-range ballistic missile launched from the Pacific Missile Range Facility at Kauai, Hawaii.

The destroyer detected and tracked the target on the AN/SPY-1 phased array radar but was unable to intercept it. It was the second test of this latest iteration of the SM-3. The John Paul Jones successfully shot down a target in February with it. That test was the first intercept using Baseline 9.2C

Killer Drones and the Militarization of U.S. Foreign Policy

To many around the world, U.S. foreign policy has been dominated for the past 16 years by military actions in the Middle East and South Asia, and large land and sea military exercises in Northeast Asia. On the world stage, American efforts in the areas of economics, trade, cultural issues and human rights appear to have taken a back seat to the waging of continuous wars.

Continuing the use of drone warfare to carry out assassinations will only exacerbate foreign distrust of American intentions and trustworthiness. It thereby plays into the hands of the very opponents we are trying to defeat.

During his campaign, Donald Trump pledged he would always put “America First,” and said he wanted to get out of the business of regime change. It is not too late for him to keep that promise by learning from his predecessors’ mistakes and reversing the continued militarization of U.S. foreign policy.

Nigeria will pass US as third most populated country by 2050

The world's population is growing.. and quickly!

In just the next seven years, India, which now has 1.3 billion people is expected to overtake China as the most populous country in the world.

According to a United Nations report, by 2050, Nigeria, now the seventh largest country is projected to pass the U.S. population of around 326 million people as the third most populated.

Director of the Economic and Social Affairs' Population Division, John Wilmoth says, "The population in Africa is notable for its rapid rate of growth, and it is anticipated that over half of global population growth between now and 2050 will take place in that region."

The U.N. forecasts that the following nine countries will see most of that growth: India, Nigeria, Congo, Pakistan, Ethiopia, Tanzania, United States, Uganda and Indonesia.

The latest worrisome development is the victory of the most hardline factions in Kosovo’s just-completed national elections. An alliance that Kosovo’s media have dubbed the “war wing,” emerged as the largest bloc in parliament, garnering 34 percent of the vote. The principal leaders of that faction, headed by the Democratic Party of Kosovo, are President Hashim Thaci, and another former leader of the infamous Kosovo Liberation Army, Ramush Haradinaj, who is likely to become prime minister. European Union and UN investigators have accused both men of numerous war crimes during Kosovo’s war of secession from Serbia in the late 1990s.

FLASHBACK - Stanford prison experiment

The Stanford prison experiment (SPE) was an attempt to investigate the psychological effects of perceived power, focusing on the struggle between prisoners and prison guards. It was conducted at Stanford University on August 14–20, 1971, by a research group led by psychology professor Philip Zimbardo using college students.[1] It was funded by the U.S. Office of Naval Research[2] as an investigation into the causes of difficulties between guards and prisoners in the United States Navy and United States Marine Corps. The experiment is a topic covered in most introductory psychology textbooks.[3]

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is a famous psychology experiment, conducted in the context of a prison with guards and prisoners. In the experiment, who was a guard and who was a prisoner was decided totally by chance. But as the experiment progressed, the guards became abusive while the prisoners became submissive. As mentioned above, the experiment was canceled early because the abuse got out of hand.

Following yesterday's interview with Miriamme Azizi, it occurred to me that the dynamics of guard and prisoner apply to other situations than just prisons.

Any group, whether it be government, bankers, or clergy, that "imprisons" another group, either politically, economically, or religiously, will abuse the captive population, and over time, the abuse inevitably increases. From this simply reality, one gets dictatorship, impoverishment, sexual abuse of children, and other evils.

Following yesterday's interview with Miriamme Azizi, it is clear that this is going on in Israel, where Israel's government is increasingly abusing, not just the Palestinians, but Jewish Israelis and even Americans "imprisoned" inside Israel. And, of course, the same is happening here in the United States with an increasingly tyrannical government disrespective of our rights, and bankers, who commit fraud upon their clients with seeming impunity. And of course, the continuing problem of clergy sex abuse of children.

This is the science behind the old saying that power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. And it was awareness of this that led the Founding Fathers of the United States to design a weak central government with three separate branches to keep an eye on each other, and as a last resort, the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms to hold an abusive government in check.

But clearly, in the face of the inevitable escalation of such abuse by our "guards", this nation is on the inevitable path to revolt. I don't like it, but I must accept it.

Australia says to resume air strikes in Syria after Russia threat

Russia said on Monday it would treat U.S.-led coalition aircraft flying west of the River Euphrates in Syria as potential targets and track them with missile systems and military aircraft, but stopped short of saying it would shoot them down.

As a result of the threat, Australia said on Tuesday it would suspend its military campaign.

On Thursday, a decision was made to resume the air strikes in Syria after an assessment of the Russian statement, although it did not say when they would begin again.

Israel vs. the United Nations: The Nikki Haley Doctrine

The United States Ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, seems to be championing a single cause: Israel.

When Haley speaks about Israel, her language is not merely emotive nor tailored to fit the need of a specific occasion. Rather, her words are resolute, consistent and are matched by a clear plan of action.

Along with Haley, the rightwing Israeli government of Benjamin Netanyahu is moving fast to cultivate the unique opportunity of dismissing the United Nations, thus, any attempt at criticizing the Israeli Occupation.

Unlike previous UN ambassadors who strongly backed Israel, Haley refrains from any coded language or any attempt, however poor, to appear balanced. Last March, she told a crowd of 18,000 supporters at the Israel lobby, AIPAC’s annual policy conference, that this is a new era for US-Israel relations.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Haley plays the "Israel Whisperer" to the absolute detriment of other relationships in the Middle East, which are equally critical to the possibility of peace being achieved here.

To downplay Israel's egregious human rights abuses against the Palestinians is rather akin to a doctor's touching up an x-ray, so the patient doesn't believe their cancer is really that severe.

As ISIS Loses Ground, US Is on a Collision Course With Syria and Iran

As ISIS loses ground in Syria, the US continues to deploy additional forces in the area. There is no expectation of the war so much ending as the US transitioning to a war against Syria and Iran for control over Syria, something some members of the National Security Council are openly advocating.

America’s long-stated goal of regime change in Syria makes this transition something of an easy sell as part of the narrative, and hawks have been salivating at a shot at fighting Iran so long they’ll likely embrace anything Iran is involved in, much as they have wars like the Saudi War in Yemen, where Iran’s connection is largely a myth.

US, Russia Continue to Inch Toward Confrontation in Syria

In backing the rebels in the early part of the Syrian Civil War, the US was rather cynically engaging in a proxy war against Russia, angling for regime change in Russia’s main Mediterranean ally, and the host of their lone Mediterranean base.

Syria’s been a source of tension ever since between the two countries, but as America’s direct ground involvement in Syria increasingly involves attacking government targets, the risk of direct military conflict between the US and Russia, with Syria as the backdrop, is growing precipitously.

US military involvement in Syria long was limited to attacks against ISIS targets, with the occasional attack against al-Qaeda forces in the Syrian northwest. Despite US assurances that strikes a few months ago against a Shi’ite militia in the country’s southeast were a one-time deal, those strikes have grown increasingly common.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It appears to me to be only a matter of time before the US and Russia are in direct military confrontation in Syria.

I don't know what the Vegas odds are on this, but I would suggest, with the ratcheting up of tensions here, we will see this happening sooner rather than later.

Saudis, Allies Have ‘List of Demands’ for Qatar

Though the details are not yet a matter of public record, US officials are confirming that Saudi Arabia and its allies have prepared a “list of demands” for Qatar related to ending the blockade of the tiny Persian Gulf nation. It is not clear if the Qataris have been given the demands yet, with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson saying he hopes they will be presented with them “soon.”

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and the Foreign Minister of Qatar
While we don’t know the content of this list of demands, we do still have the huge list of demands given to Qatar by Saudi Arabia two weeks ago, which may well form the basis for this latest list. This included severing all diplomatic ties with Iran, the permanent shut down of al-Jazeera, and a pledge never publicly contradict any GCC member nations, among other things.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

We will see how this plays out; but if Saudi Arabia ultimately invades Qatar, because Qatar refuses to yield to Saudi Arabia's demands, and with Turkish troops on the ground here, and Iran pledging support, what will the orders be to US military commanders in the country if this happens?!?

FLASHBACK - Webb 'Suicide' Looking More Like Murder

Mr. Lyons pronouncement about a distinct possibility of suicide, not even PROBABILITY, should be enough of a RED FLAG to convince even the true believers that something is rotten in Sacramento. If Gary Webb committed suicide with 2 shots to the head via a .38 caliber pistol, then I've got a nice condo to sell you in Fallujah! But wait, there's more compelling evidence to refute the lie that what we have here is a suicide. And it looks a lot like cotton candy all spin and mostly hot air evidence. Once you bite into it you realize it's a bundle of perception control, mostly innuendo, or black magic designed to conjure a pre-determined picture in your mind, in order to reinforce the BIG lie. Then there's the issue of 2 shots to the head with a .38 caliber pistol.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Traders Get Burned In Ethereum Flash Crash

The white hot cryptocurrency Ethereum went on a wild ride on Wednesday, plummeting from around $320 to around 10 cents in a so-called "flash crash."

...

As Adam White, the VP of GDAX, explained in a blog post, one investor placed a multi-million dollar Ethereum "sell" order at 12:30 p.m. on Wednesday. The size of the order caused the price of the currency, which is already volatile, to dip.

Things started to go really haywire, however, as the price dip triggered a series of stop loss orders.

"This slippage started a cascade of approximately 800 stop loss orders and margin funding liquidations, causing ETH to temporarily trade as low as $0.10," White explained.

In other words, the computers executing the stop loss orders began to sell at all costs and, so long as there was someone on the other side to match the order, the trade went through—even if the price was totally irrational, and driven only by an algorithmic frenzy.

Democrats Block Witnesses from Testifying in House Intel Probe

House Democrats are continuing to block testimony from about a dozen witnesses who sought to appear before the intelligence oversight panel investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Congressional officials said one of the key witnesses, former informal adviser to the Trump campaign Carter Page, was scheduled to testify at a closed hearing of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.

But Democrats on the committee blocked the testimony, asserting they needed more time to prepare.

"He's the guy that many Democrats have been pointing to as the supposed mastermind and you would think they were interested hearing his story," said one Capitol Hill official.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Democrats don't want Page testifying, because the truth he will tell will simply cement the reality that there's no "there" there to the charges of Russian tampering with the 2016 elections.

Trump’s Preferred Candidate Wins Again, This Time in Saudi Arabia

President Trump wasted no time on Wednesday calling the newly named crown prince of Saudi Arabia, Mohammed bin Salman. Less than 24 hours after King Salman elevated Prince Mohammed, his 31-year-old son, Mr. Trump offered congratulations and celebrated the monarchy’s cooperation in rooting out terrorist financing and other issues.

Even more than Karen Handel, the Republican who won a hotly contested House seat in a special election in Georgia this week, Prince Mohammed was Mr. Trump’s anointed candidate — in this case, for the byzantine struggle to control the House of Saud.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The "itch", for Prince Mohammed, includes the continued genocide in Yemen, where Yemeni children are being massacred and maimed for life by Saudi bombings on a daily basis; with US military help, Saudi Arabia has closed the ports, so food cannot get in, and children are dying from malnutrition; and now, cholera has taken firm hold in Yemen, and there is no treatment for it.

Oh, and did I mention the use of depleted uranium weapons in Yemen, which is causing massive birth defects, and still births, in Yemeni children?!?

The "itch" also includes finding any which way to conjure up, and "sell" a war with Iran, Saudi Arabia's alleged "existential threat" in the region, which will most probably include war with Russia.

With "friends" like Prince Mohammed....the US government is looking at one hell of a lot more wars in the Middle East, much blood and money spent, and most likely, the reinstitution of the draft, both for our young men, and young women.

Hackers Use NSA Exploit to Mine Monero Using Victims’ Computers

Once infected, the malware creates a simple backdoor that allows the hackers to execute code on a machine. The hackers then use the NSA’s Doublepulsar exploit to download a generic malware loader onto the infected machine. The virus will then scan the computer to determine if it has enough resources available to execute its payload. If said resources are available, a generic malware loader will download a cryptocurrency miner, begin mining XMR, and divert the XMR to the hacker’s wallet. Experts also note that the trojan is able to shut itself down when a PC owner launches the Task Manager utility, allowing the malware to remain undetected whilst in operation.

Using historic footage, dramatic re-enactments and interviews with a cast of fascinating characters – including former CIA and DEA agents, drug traffickers and gang members – the series makes the case that the drug trade has always been entwined in America's military adventures: all the way from the CIA's secret experiments with LSD in the early Cold War, to opium production in Afghanistan during the War on Terror. "We really wanted to do an epic look at the secret history of the war on drugs in America and tell this much bigger story," says Anthony Lappé, who produced the four-part series along with Julian Hobbs and Elli Hakami . "It's almost like the secret history of the last 50 years."

AFGHAN OPIUM PRODUCTION 40 TIMES HIGHER SINCE US-NATO INVASION

Since the U.S.-led NATO invasion of Afghanistan in 2001, the production of opium in the country has increased by 40 times according to Russia’s Federal Drug Control Service, or FSKN, fueling organized crime and widespread death.

The head of the FSKN, Viktor Ivanov, explained the staggering trend at a March U.N. conference on drugs in Afghanistan. Opium growth in Afghanistan increased 18 percent from 131, 000 hectares to 154, 000, according to Ivanov’s estimates.

“Afghan heroin has killed more than one million people worldwide since the ‘Operation Enduring Freedom’ began and over a trillion dollars has been invested into transnational organized crime from drug sales,” said Ivanov according to Counter Current News.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Accidental", this massive boom in opium poppy production in Afghanistan?!?

I think not.

Was Otto Warmbier an American Student or an Israeli Spy?

And now the six million dollar question. Was Warmbier an Israeli spy? Who knows, but it is likely that someone in North Korea thought he was.

We know that Israel and North Korea are extremely hostile towards each other. North Korea has never recognised the Jewish State and in 1988 it recognised the State of Palestine as including all of Israel. Israel often accuses North Korea of trading arms with Hamas and Syria.

Peculiarly, not a single MSM outlet has referred to Warmbier's ties with Israel. Until his last hours, Israel and the Jewish community kept silent about Warmbier’s Jewish identity, his Zionist affiliation and his visit to Israel. Maybe this silence is more revealing than anything else.

THE HISTORY CHANNEL IS FINALLY TELLING THE STUNNING SECRET STORY OF THE WAR ON DRUGS

For decades the U.S. government has engaged in a shifting series of alliances of convenience with the world’s largest drug cartels.

The good news for Grassley, and for everyone else, is that starting Sunday night and running through Wednesday the History Channel is showing a new four-part series called “America’s War on Drugs.” Not only is it an important contribution to recent American history, it’s also the first time U.S. television has ever told the core truth about one of the most important issues of the past 50 years.

That core truth is: The war on drugs has always been a pointless sham. For decades the federal government has engaged in a shifting series of alliances of convenience with some of the world’s largest drug cartels. So while the U.S. incarceration rate has quintupled since President Richard Nixon first declared the war on drugs in 1971, top narcotics dealers have simultaneously enjoyed protection at the highest levels of power in America.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mike has recorded this, and we saw a couple of episodes last night.

And if you see this, and do not wake up to the reality of the narcopracy in which we have been living, you never will.

America Illegally At War For a Long Time Now

US Senator Rand Paul has spoken out during the debate on war powers, saying that the current wars the US is leading are “illegal,” and that he isn’t “voting to go to war in 50 or 60 countries” where terrorist powers are now based.

The hearing during which Rand Paul spoke out was the latest one in a yearlong string of debates over what to do with the open-ended 9/11 Proclamation on war authorization.

The divide between the members of Congress over the issue has been growing, with some using “this debate for the singular purpose of imposing limitations on our president — it’s just a fact,” according to Republican Senator Bob Corker, while “others may refuse to limit a president at war in any way.”

The US Escalation In Syria And The Threat Of World War

In the wake of Sunday’s US shoot-down of a Syrian fighter plane and the following day’s warning from Russia that it will treat all American warplanes flying west of the Euphrates River as targets for its surface-to-air missiles, the threat of an armed confrontation between the world’s two largest nuclear powers is now greater than at any time since the Cuban Missile Crisis nearly 55 years ago.

This threat, which carries with it the grim prospect of the annihilation of humanity, is the product of a calculated escalation on the part of US imperialism.

RUSSIA-GATE FLOPS AS DEMOCRATS’ GOLDEN TICKET

The national Democratic Party and many liberals have bet heavily on the Russia-gate investigation as a way to oust President Trump from office and to catapult Democrats to victories this year and in 2018, but the gamble appears not to be paying off.

The Democrats’ disappointing loss in a special election to fill a congressional seat in an affluent Atlanta suburb is just the latest indication that the strategy of demonizing Trump and blaming Russia for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 defeat may not be the golden ticket that some Democrats had hoped.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This should have not been called "Russiagate"; it should have been called "Stupidgate", a reality that the Democratic creators of this piece of codswallop are only beginning to fathom.

UCL ransomware attack traced to malvertising campaign

Security researchers have suggested that the ransomware attack on University College London last week was spread through a "malvertising" campaign.

Proofpoint reckons the AdGholas group spread the infection using malware-tainted online ads. This was a "zero-click required" campaign that could infect users who simply visited a compromised site1.

More specifically, the Astrum Exploit Kit was used to deliver the Mole ransomware, Proofpoint said. Mole is a member of the CryptFile2/CryptoMix ransomware family.

A Long History of Leftist Hatred

James T. Hodgkinson of Belleville, Illinois, who aspired to end his life as a mass murderer of Republican Congressmen, was a Donald Trump hater and a Bernie Sanders backer.

Like many before him, Hodgkinson was a malevolent man of the hating and hard left.

His planned atrocity failed because two Capitol Hill cops were at that Alexandria baseball field, providing security for House Whip Steve Scalise. Had those cops not been there, a massacre would have ensued with many more dead than the gunman.

Montana initiative would limit transgender use of bathrooms

A conservative group wants to let Montana voters decide whether transgender people must use public restrooms and locker rooms designated for their gender at birth — a move that could thrust the state into the national debate over transgender rights.

The Montana Family Foundation launched its campaign to place the matter on next year’s fall ballot after lawmakers declined to do so.

Afghanistan: Obama-Era Drop in Anti-Drug Programs Fuel Heroin Use Among Women, Children

A dramatic drop in U.S.-funded opium eradication efforts in Afghanistan over the last few years is fueling a growing heroin addiction problem afflicting tens of thousands of women and some children in the war-ravaged country, reports the Washington Post (WaPo).

Webmaster's Commentary:

If you’re German father, and a culture-enricher sexually harasses or molests your daughter, you can’t shoot him. You can’t hit him upside the head with a board. You can’t kick him. And you can’t smack him. If you do, you may expect the full legal force of the Modern Multicultural State to come down hard on you.

About all you can do is say: “Good day, sir. My daughter welcomes refugees. You may have your way with her — please avail yourself of her services. Would you like her little sister, too?”

CRISPR May Not Be Nearly as Precise as We Thought

The revolutionary gene-editing technology CRISPR-Cas9 is often described as “molecular scissors” for its ability to turn previously improbable feats of genetic engineering into exercises in cutting and pasting. But while over the last few years CRISPR has become so commonplace that even middle school students are now using it, a study out this week in the journal Nature Methods reminds us that it’s still a nascent technology with a long way to go before we can freely cut and paste human DNA at will.

When correcting blindness in mice, researchers at Columbia University found that though CRISPR did manage to successfully edit the particular gene responsible for blindness, it also caused mutations to more than a thousand other unintended genes. The off-target effects of CRISPR have long been known, but this new research highlights just how extensive they can be, and highlights the importance of research to understand them.
