Natural News calls for the arrest, prosecution of Google executives for racketeering and fraud

Following Breitbart’s bombshell release of a once-secret video that captured Google executives panicking after the Trump election victory, it’s now clear that Google is a dangerous left-wing techno-cult that is deliberately manipulating U.S. elections through fraudulent, illegal means.

It’s time to arrest and prosecute Google executives for racketeering and fraud.

24 arrested in East Valley child sex crimes operation

Over a recent six-day period, undercover detectives placed ads on websites commonly used by suspects looking to perform illegal sex acts, particularly with children.

Mesa police say all 24 suspects solicited or made deals for various sex acts with the undercover detectives before they were arrested.

Suspects in this case range from the age of 21 to 80 years old.

"Crimes involving children are of the highest priority and I appreciate our partnership with all the agencies involved in the successful removal of these dangerous child predators from our community," said Mesa Police Chief Ramon Batista.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am appalled by sex crimes against children, but frankly this feels like entrapment to me.

Yellow Journalism of Yellow-Bellied Bob Woodward & the NYT

It takes no time at all. You listen to Bob Woodward’s halting speech. You read his lumpen prose, and you get right away what undergirds his Trump-phobic tome, “Fear: Trump in the White House.”

Naively, the president had expected to fulfill his revolutionary campaign promises to the American voters, an assumption that threw Woodward and the D.C. elites for a loop.

If past is prologue, voters don’t—and should not—get their way. After all, the views of Trump voters on American power are polar opposites of those held by the permanent state.

What does “Boobus Americanus” know? Nothing!

Woodward and the New York Times’ anonymous anti-Trump whistleblower consider the president to be stark raving bonkers for not grasping that Rome on the Potomac moves to its own beat. It does not respond to voters, except to mollify them with “bread and circuses.”

Four Belgian Political Parties Call for Banning of Pro-Sharia Islamist Party

Four political parties are pushing forward laws that could prohibit the pro-sharia Partij Islam ahead of Belgium’s upcoming municipal elections.

The Independent Federal Democrat Party (DEFI), the right-wing Reform Movement (MR), the Humanist Democratic Centre (CDH), and the Socialist Party (PS) have announced a proposal to ban parties “whose aim is to threaten public liberties”, which may include the Islamist party, Le Point reports.

The party gained notoriety earlier this year after its founder, Anderlecht municipal councillor Redouane Ahrouch, declared: “Our goal is a one hundred percent Islamic state.”

Hungary: EU Sanctions Vote is ‘Petty Revenge’ for Proving Migration Can Be Stopped

Hungary has received the backing of its anti-mass migration allies in Poland and the Czech Republic following a vote of censure in the European Parliament, which the Central European country’s foreign minister has denounced as “petty revenge”.

“Today’s [European Parliament] decision is the petty revenge of pro-migration politicians,” declared Péter Szijjártó.

The Hungarian suggested that the EU establishment was seeking to make an example of Hungary, which was subject to an Article 7 vote, which could see the country stripped of its voting rights.

This is because Viktor Orbán’s government “proved that there is no need for migration and migration can be stopped” and this angered pro-migration politicians, in Szijjártó’s estimation.

Pierre Moscovici, a Frenchman who is the European Union’s economics affairs commissioner, said the current political situation, with populist, far-right forces on the rise in many nations, resembled the 1930s when Germany’s Adolf Hitler and Italian fascist chief Benito Mussolini were in power.

Global Shipping Rates Collapse As Trade War Spreads

When President Donald Trump fired the first shot of his trade war cannon at China, the market for international shipping rates spiked higher in April through July amid a jump in demand for hauling of bulk commodities that are essential in powering the Asian country's economy, as traders sought to front-run the implementation of tariffs.

Fast forward several months, with the Trump administration on the verge of slapping even more tariffs on Chinese goods worth $200 billion, and the uncertainties around global trade appear to have finally collapsed some shipping rates.

Catastrophe Bondholders Panic As Insurers' Models Failed To Predict Hurricane Florence

Though it's still more than 500 mile out from the US coastline, Hurricane Florence is already pummeling the financial models that insurance companies - not to mention the investors who help capitalize insurers - use to price risk. Because of this, institutional and retail holders of so-called "catastrophe bonds" could brook huge losses that could deter them from buying these types of bonds in the future - which could deprive insurers of a crucial source of funding.

The bonds, which gained popularity in the aftermath of Hurricane Andrew, allow insurers and reinsurers to transfer risk to a pool of investors. Basically, investors receive a premium if insurers go a set amount of time without paying out a major claim. But if a natural disaster strikes, bondholders will lose some or all of their principle.

Merkel Melts Down After Thousands Of Germans Protest Violent Migrants

Merkel shot back, acknowledging the anger felt over the stabbing - however she said that "there is no excuse or explanation for rabble-rousing, in some cases the use of violence, Nazi slogans, hostility towards people who look different, to the owner of a Jewish restaurant, attacking police."

She also responded to comments made by the head of Germany's BfV domestic intelligence agency, Hans-Georg Maaßen, who criticized her spokesman for characterizing the anti-immigrant protesters as "hunting" immigrants.

'Civil War in Syria Will Not End in Idlib' – Israeli Publicist

The US-led coalition continues to issue threats to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad claiming that Damascus may use chemical arms in Syria. Speaking to Sputnik, Israeli political commentator Avigdor Eskin dubbed this psychological warfare, expressing confidence that Russia and the US would not engage in a conflict over Idlib.

The liberation of Idlib by the Syrian Arab Army would not end the war overnight, Israeli political commentator and publicist Avigdor Eskin told Sputnik, referring to potential retaliation by Assad's opponents as well as the yet unsolved Kurdish issue.

According to the Israeli publicist, one should tread carefully when it comes to a city with 3 million people held hostage by terrorists.

"There are three million people in Idlib," Eskin noted. "Many of them come from different parts of Syria while Assad and his allies advanced there. The price of attack on Idlib will be higher than of Aleppo or Mosul."

Archbishop of Canterbury is accused of hypocrisy after slamming web giant Amazon for ‘leeching’ off taxpayers – as it emerges his Church holds a multi-million-pound stake in the retailer

Only days after Archbishop Welby accused the internet giant of ‘leeching off the taxpayer’, the Mail can reveal the Church’s stake in the company is one of the 20 most valuable investments held by its multi-billion-pound fund.

The Church refused to say how much its Amazon shares are worth, but it is likely to be several million pounds. Its 20 most valuable investments total more than £500 million.

New Russian AWACS Will Absolutely Outpace Rivals, Causes NATO Great Concern

The Russian Air Force will receive the new Beriev A-100 aircraft with the Air Alert and Control System, or Early Warning and Control System (AWACS) as early as 2020 or early 2021. AWACS would significantly boost the Russian Air Force’s ability to obtain and maintain air superiority when coupled with fighters like the Sukhoi Su-30SM Flanker-H and Sukhoi Su-35S Flanker-E.

The Russian Defense Minister is expected to sign the production contract for the new AWACS, which would replace the existing Beriev A-50 fleet in the Russian Air Force. “We look forward to a detailed discussion with the Ministry of Defense on the delivery contract for the A-100 aircraft by the end of this year or in 2019,” said U.S. Aviation Corporation President Yuri Slyusar.

Did you know that the CIA ordered US officials to give visas to unqualified people from terrorist countries to enter the US – to be trained as terrorists?

Here’s the detailed story straight from the horse’s mouth.

Business as usual.

The CIA has the ability to shut down drug investigations and prosecutions – and does so frequently to protect its “assets.”

The CIA can also order visa offices to give visas to ANYONE regardless of their background or the country they come from.

Remember the so called “underwear bomber” who was let on a plane to the US without a passport? He’s the reason everyone who wants to fly has to submit to an untested radiation screening flogged by former head of Homeland Security Michael Chertoff.

Federal deficit soars 32 percent to $895B

The federal deficit hit $895 billion in the first 11 months of fiscal 2018, an increase of $222 billion, or 32 percent, over the same period the previous year, according to the Congressional Budget Office (CBO).

The nonpartisan CBO reported that the central drivers of the increasing deficit were the Republican tax law and the bipartisan agreement to increase spending. As a result, revenue only rose 1 percent, failing to keep up with a 7 percent surge in spending, it added.

Revenue from individual and payroll taxes was up some $105 billion, or 4 percent, while corporate taxes fell $71 billion, or 30 percent.

‘It’s science fiction’: Professor doubts claims of ‘microwave attacks’ on US diplomats in Cuba

There’s no conclusive evidence that US diplomats stationed in Cuba were injured by a futuristic weapon, Kenneth R. Foster, a professor of bioengineering, told RT, adding that theories involving microwaves were “science fiction.”

NBC published an explosive report earlier this week claiming that several anonymous US officials suspect that Russia was behind a series of unexplained “attacks” on US diplomatic personnel in Cuba and China, leaving the victims with injuries ranging from hearing loss to “problems with cognition.”

But Foster, a professor at the University of Pennsylvania who studied microwave phenomena while working at the Naval Medical Research Center in Bethesda, told RT that the evidence that these purported injuries were caused by some kind of microwave weapon – which the NBC article alleges – is “science fiction.”

Punitive measures taken against the Palestinians by the Trump Administration, including the cutting of UN aid and the closure of the Palestinian consulate in Washington, has not hampered peace efforts, the US president’s senior advisor and son-in-law Jared Kushner has said.

Speaking to the New York Times on the 25 anniversary of the Oslo Accords, Kushner argued that the US had taken brave stances against Palestinian demands.

“There were too many false realities that were created — that people worship — that I think needed to be changed,” he said. “All we’re doing is dealing with things as we see them and not being scared out of doing the right thing. I think, as a result, you have a much higher chance of actually achieving a real peace.”

U.S. Again Cries ‘Chemical Warfare’ in Syria

The newly appointed State Department Special Representative for Syria, Jim Jeffreys, claims that there is “Lots of evidence” that Syria is preparing to use chemical weapons, specifically chlorine gas, in support of the Idlib operation.

For its part, Russia claims to have specific intelligence that al Qaeda affiliates, working in conjunction with the White Helmet organization, is preparing to stage a chlorine gas attack designed to look like it was done by the Syrian government. The U.S. has warned that it would launch a major military strike against not only the Syrian government, but also Russian and Iranian targets in Syria, if chemical weapons were used in Idlib.

In the latest era of supposed “populism” led by figures like Donald Trump, an entirely new and very green generation of liberty activists find themselves hyper focused on the political left in general, but they seem to be obsessed with attacking the symptoms of globalism rather than the source. I attribute this to a clever propaganda campaign by globalist institutions.

MAJOR: Russia Promised To Attack US Forces In Syria, U.S Escalation Likely After Hurricane Florence

Russia has warned the US that the SAA and Russian Air Force are ready and prepared to attack US backed terrorist forces at Tanf just last week, even if US forces are present. The US responded in recent days by increasing the number of US forces there from dozens up to several hundred.

Russia has not backed off its warning, and it is acting within international law at the invitation of the Syrian government. The US is occupying a relatively small area within Syria from which it protects the remaining Al Qaeda and ISIS groups in southern Syria. Now things are coming to a boil as the Idlib stand-off intensifies.

USAF to use F-35B Lightning II against Russia's Su-57 and S-400 systems in Syria?

The US military intend to use F-35B Lightning II fighter aircraft in Syria. According to experts, this type of aircraft has a potential to intimidate forces of the enemy.

It is expected that the F-35B Lightning II will be able to perform any mission in Syria. This is the only deck-based aircraft in the Middle East, and the US military may use them for military operations on the territory of Syria, Iraq or Afghanistan.

The US Air Force has never used this type of aircraft in combat action before, the USNI News website wrote. "The deployment of the F-35B into U.S. Central Command is a major milestone for the program and validates the aircraft is in the fight right now, conducting real-world operations; it is actively supporting combatant commanders. We look forward to demonstrating the capability of our newest, advanced stealth aircraft during this deployment," Capt.

Russia to create humanitarian corridors in Idlib to prevent civilian casualties – Russian FM

Moscow will create humanitarian corridors in Syria’s Idlib and encourage local reconciliation deals to prevent civilian casualties, the Russian Foreign Minister has said. He warned that terrorist sites would still be targeted.

“We will do everything not to hurt civilian population,” the diplomat said.

While delivering his message, Lavrov also pulled no punches on the way the Western coalition helped “liberate” cities. In particular, he touched upon Iraq’s Mosul and Syria’s Raqqa, which have been major strongholds of Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS) terrorists for a long time.

Trump Casts Doubt On Trade Talk Breakthrough

‘If we meet, we meet?’: Trump casts doubt on trade talks breakthrough with China says ‘we are under no pressure to make a deal’

Hopes that the United States and China could soon break their trade impasse took a fresh hit on Thursday after US President Donald Trump said his administration was under no pressure to make a deal.

Appearing to respond to a Wall Street Journal article from Wednesday that suggested newly proposed high-level talks were in part the result of rising pressure on him to bring about a resolution to the trade war, Trump tweeted that the newspaper “has it wrong.”

“We are under no pressure to make a deal with China, they are under pressure to make a deal with us,” he said. “Our markets are surging, theirs are collapsing. We will soon be taking in Billions in Tariffs & making products at home.”
