Gabbard says calling Trump a Putin puppet is dangerous & stupid, Twitter calls her a Putin puppet

Democratic candidate for president and establishment-punching bag Tulsi Gabbard is taking heat on Twitter for daring to suggest that the Russiagate scandal could be pushing the US and Russia toward a dangerous new Cold War.

Gabbard tweeted that “short-sighted” politicians and media pundits who spend their time accusing Donald Trump of being in cahoots with Russia were helping bring about a new arms race because the accusations have led Trump to do “everything he can to prove he’s not [Russian President Vladimir] Putin’s puppet — even if it brings us closer to nuclear war.”

In a sane world, journalists, pundits and even Gabbard’s fellow Democrats all understood exactly what she meant and took her point on board. Except, this is Twitter we’re talking about, so of course, she was eviscerated.

India Mulls Rupee Payment to Continue Purchasing Venezuelan Oil

India's Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas has advised private refiners Reliance Industries and Nayara Energy to avoid making payments for Venezuelan crude imports through channels that are likely to be impacted by US sanctions.

New Delhi (Sputnik): In a major indication that India is in no mood to buckle under US pressure, New Delhi has already started the process to make sure that purchases of crude oil from Venezuela would not be impacted in the absence of a sanction-proof payment system.

A government official told Sputnik that making payments in India's national currency is being considered, but that the proposal is at the initial stage.

“Wrong does not cease to be wrong because the majority share in it.” ? Leo Tolstoy

I know you heard the news that Fox News last week preempted Sixth Avenue’s answer to Learned Hand, Judge Jeanine Pirro, from her weekly show for reasons I’ll and you’ll never know or understand. And she was replaced, er, preempted for reruns of “Bowling for Sportshirts” or some Gawd awful remnant and retread ostensibly after her not-so-well-received comments anent and regarding newly-minted Congressperson Ilhan Omar. Seems that JJ’s quips and witticisms as to the compatibility of what Ms. Pirro viewed as Sharia with a member of Congress’s allegiance to the Constitution were not well-received. So what, I say.

Public disgrace: 82% of EU govt websites stalked by Google adtech cookies – report

Adtech trackers were found on 25 of the 28 member states' sites, with only Spain, Germany and the Netherlands clean of commercial cookies. There were 52 companies identified on France's government sites, 27 on Latvia's and 19 on Belgium's. Twenty cookies were identified on GOV.UK, of which 12 were marketing, and all belonged to one company – Google.

Indeed, the search giant is described as the "kingpin of tracking" within the report, present on 82 per cent of all the sites and accounting for three of the top five trackers: YouTube, DoubleClick and Google.

The report authors said this was of "special concern" because Google can cross-reference trackers with its first-party account details via its widely used consumer services such as Mail, Search and Android apps.

‘Master spy’ Christopher Steele admits he used unverified internet post to create Trump dossier

Christopher Steele, the ex-British spy who fueled Russiagate hysteria with his DNC-commissioned opposition research on Donald Trump, admitted during a lawsuit deposition that he relied on unverified information contained in a report published by CNN iReport – a now-defunct “user-generated” news site. Stories featured on iReport were submitted by citizen journalists and were not edited, fact-checked, or screened before being published.

Steele acknowledged under questioning that he had used a July 28, 2009 report published on iReport to substantiate claims he made about internet hosting company Webzilla and its alleged Kremlin ties. However, the former British intel officer insisted that he thought iReport boasted the same thorough journalistic standards as CNN.

Boeing Tumbles On Grand Jury Subpoena Probing 737 MAX Approval

In the latest blow to both Boeing and the Federal Aviation Administration, the WSJ reported overnight that Federal prosecutors and Department of Transportation officials are scrutinizing the development of Boeing 737 MAX jetliners and in particular its anti-stall (MCAS) system, inquiries described as "unusual" and which come amid probes of regulators' safety approvals of the new plane.

The Seattle Times separately reported that Boeing’s safety analysis of a new flight control system on 737 MAX jets had several crucial flaws.

According to the WSJ, a "grand jury in Washington, D.C., issued a broad subpoena dated March 11 - a day after the Ethiopian Airlines crash a week ago - to at least one person involved in the 737 MAX’s development, seeking related documents, including correspondence, emails and other messages." The subpoena, with a prosecutor from the Justice Department’s criminal division listed as a contact, sought documents to be handed over later this month.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Boeing did the unpardonable, in terms of aviation safety; they knew this iteration was both flawed, and that training for pilots woefully inadequate, and yet, they approved its release anyway.

My late dad was an aircraft instrument mechanic; and I always loved to fly, because I thought that every other aircraft instrument mechanic was just as dedicated, and thorough, as my late dad, who would not sign of on an instrument's trustworthiness.

Now, we have a major corporation which appears to have not given a damn whether their aircraft was safe, in order to rake in the profits, at least until something horrendous happened; the Boeing executives who signed off on this, should be brought up on criminal charges.

WATCH Bulgarian policemen use pepper spray against protesters…but wind blows it back in their faces

Bulgarian policemen inadvertently pepper-sprayed themselves during a protest rally in the country’s capital Sofia on Sunday, when they diffused the chemical at demonstrators against the wind.

Video has emerged online showing several police officers forming a barricade in a bid to calm the crowd of protesters, some of whom were waving national flags. One of the policemen then deploys pepper spray but it blows straight back into the cops’ faces, forcing them to retreat. The footage ends with scenes of officers rinsing their eyes with water.

What are they trying to hide? Out of all the violent videos on the ‘net, possessing the NZ mosque shooting video can now get you 10 years in prison

An 18-year-old man was arrested in New Zealand for merely sharing the live stream video of the Christchurch shooting. “The live stream video of the shootings in Christchurch has been classified by the Chief Censor’s Office as objectionable,” reports Radio NZ. “Police said anyone in possession of the video of the shootings, or found to be distributing it, could face imprisonment.”

This means, essentially, that linking to content the government doesn’t like is now a crime in New Zealand.

So wait a minute. YouTube alone hosts countless murder videos covering everything from war-time military shootings to civilian gunfight videos in which people are fatally shot and killed. Yet possessing those videos — or sharing them, or posting them — apparently isn’t a crime in New Zealand or anywhere in the western world.

Incredible images capture the moment a 1,500 TON meteor exploded over Earth with 10 times the energy released by the Hiroshima atomic bomb last year - and scientists have only just spotted it

Incredible images reveal a meteor that exploded in the Earth's atmosphere in December with ten times the force of the Hiroshima bomb - yet no one detected it.

The incident took place at 11:50pm GMT (3:30am EST) on December 18, 2018, over the Bering Sea - between Russia and Alaska - but has only just been discovered.

It is believed to be the second largest meteor explosion in the last 30 years, and the biggest since the high-profile Chelyabinsk fireball of 2013.

PHARMACOLOGIST: MARIJUANA IS A LOT MORE THAN JUST THC

Medical marijuana is legal in 33 states as of November 2018. Yet the federal government still insists marijuana has no legal use and is easy to abuse. In the meantime, medical marijuana dispensaries have an increasing array of products available for pain, anxiety, sex and more.

The glass counters and their jars of products in the dispensary resemble an 18th century pharmacy. Many strains for sale have evocative and magical names like Blue Dream, Bubba Kush and Chocolope. But what does it all mean? Are there really differences in the medical qualities of the various strains? Or, are the different strains with the fanciful names all just advertising gimmicks?

US Military Now Planning To Keep 1,000 Troops On The Ground In Syria

President Trump ordered complete US withdrawal in December; in February he said 200 would remain; and now...

The US military is now making plans to keep almost 1,000 troops in Syria, officials said, a shift that comes three months after President Donald Trump ordered a complete withdrawal, the Wall Street Journal reported on Sunday, citing unidentified US officials.

Talks with Turkey, European allies and US-backed Kurdish fighters have so far failed to secure an agreement to create a safe zone in northeastern Syria, part of Trump’s plan for leaving Syria, the Journal said.

The US now plans to keep working with Kurdish fighters in Syria despite Turkish threats to cross the border and attack the Kurds, the US officials said. The proposal may keep as many as 1,000 American forces, spread from the north of Syria to the south, they said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

More proof, if anyone needed it, that President Trump is not at all in charge of US foreign policy when it comes to Syria.

Memory Hole New Zealand: News Reports Suggested 2 Shooters; IEDs Found Strapped To Multiple Vehicles; Suspect’s Strange Travel History

By Aaron Kesel

The official narrative being pushed in the mainstream press on the tragic shootings at two crowded mosques in New Zealand is that 28-year-old Brenton Tarrant murdered 50 people and injured scores of others at the time of this report by himself. However, there are more questions than answers regarding the attack.

For instance, New Zealand authorities reported that after the incident four suspects were taken into custody -- three men and a woman. Adding that they had found and neutralized several IEDs (improvised explosive devices) on the vehicles stopped during the arrests.

MSN even wrote the IEDs were "attached to the attackers' vehicles," which was cited by Associated Press at the top of the article...

'Fight hard for Jeanine Pirro!' Trump calls on Fox News to 'bring back' the host after her weekly program didn't air due to 'internal scheduling matters' following her remarks suggesting Ilhan Omar's hijab means she follows sharia law

President Donald Trump has called on Fox News to 'bring back' Jeanine Pirro after her weekly show was replaced by a documentary following her remarks suggesting that Rep Ilhan Omar's hijab meant that she subscribes to sharia law.

Pirro’s program, Justice with Judge Jeanine, reportedly did not air on Fox News on Saturday night due to 'scheduling matters'.

Instead, the network re-aired the documentary Scandalous: The Trial of William Kennedy Smith, in Pirro's normally scheduled time slot at 9pm.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, a Fox News spokesperson said the network is 'not commenting on internal scheduling matters'.

But on Sunday, Trump tweeted that the 'Radical Left Democrats, working closely with their beloved partner, the Fake News Media, is using every trick in the book to SILENCE a majority of our Country'.

'They have all out campaigns against @FoxNews hosts who are doing too well,' he added.

German Jews for Palestinian rights receive a peace prize– and are dismissed as ‘the wrong kind of Jews’

Last week, the German organization Jewish Voice for a Just peace in the Middle East received a peace prize from the city of Göttingen.

As the organization supports the Palestinian call for Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions against Israel, the announcement of its nomination became a battleground, wherein prominent Jewish leaders tarnished its members as anti-Semites, suggesting that they were the ‘wrong kind of Jews’. The mayor and the president of the Göttingen university withdrew their support and cancelled the booking of halls for receptions. Nonetheless the jury stuck to its decision, and crowdfunded a prize of 28,000 Euros, which the organization will donate to human rights organizations in Palestine as well as to the liberal Israeli +972 Magazine.

At the ‘worst checkpoint in the West Bank,’ Palestinians begin lining up at 3 a.m.

Palestinian workers say conditions at the notorious checkpoint in occupied West Bank have worsened over the last months — Frantic clamouring disrupts the usual noises at Israel’s Checkpoint 300 in Bethlehem, where thousands of Palestinian workers queue for hours, starting at 3 am, to make it on time for their jobs in Israel. Workers chat, bicker, joke, frustratingly shout, bang on the steel bars, and rattle the turnstiles that Israeli border police officials intermittently lock amid the heavy traffic. “He has fainted. Everyone move! Call an ambulance!” The crowd becomes louder as a young man is carried outside the checkpoint. Numerous workers surround the man’s limp body stretched out on the ground, and others attempt to resuscitate him – to no avail … An ambulance arrives, and the young man is lifted onto a gurney and rushed to the hospital. The workers continue on through the single cement lane, sipping on small paper cups of coffee to push past their exhaustion.

Israel approves plan to reoccupy Gaza

The Israeli occupation army proposed a plan to reoccupy the besieged Gaza Strip during any future offensive, Al-Khaleej Online reported yesterday.

The plan was approved 14 years after Israel’s unilateral disengagement from the costal enclave.

The Wallah news website, which is close to the Israeli intelligence, said the plan were prepared when Gadi Eisenkot was the chief of staff while his predecessor Aviv Kofach approved it.

The news website reported senior Israeli military officials saying: “Hamas might flareup the region and go for a major confrontation if the truce understandings failed.”

The Gaza Strip has suffered under a more than 12-year siege at the hands of Israel, with support from Egypt and the international community. Goods, food, aid, construction materials and other essentials have not been allowed into the Strip and people have been left unable to leave even to access medical care.

US-Jewish settlers storm Al-Aqsa Mosque

Under heavy security protection of occupation forces, scores of Jewish settlers of American origin yesterday stormed the Al-Aqsa Mosque courtyards, Arab48 reported.

The news site reported that 67 Jewish settlers and foreign tourists stormed Al-Aqsa Mosque, Islam’s third holiest site.

According to the website, the settlers performed religious rituals and provoked Muslim and Palestinian worshippers.

Meanwhile, occupation forces deployed all around the mosque from the early hours of the morning and tightened restrictions imposed on the entry of Palestinians.

Israeli settlers carry out raids in to Al-Aqsa on an almost daily basis. They are accompanied by heavily armed Israeli military police, which impose severe restrictions on Palestinian and Muslim worshippers, with many banned from entering the holy site for months at a time as a result of their rejection of Israeli settler desecration of the area.

Israel military censor banned, partially redacted more than 3,000 news items in 2018

Israel’s military censor “prohibited the publication of 363 news articles in 2018” in addition to “partially or fully redacting a total of 2,712 news items submitted to it for prior review”, reported +972 Magazine, a significant spike in “censor intervention”.

According to the news site, “the censor barred more news stories from publication in 2018 than in almost any other year this decade”. With respect to articles published after partial redaction, only 2014 saw “similarly substantial censorship of the press”.

+972 Magazine reported that “the spike in censorship compared to 2017 is significant: in the last year, the IDF Censor prevented the publication of 92 more articles than it did in the year prior, while it partially or fully redacted an additional 625 stories.”

Overall, “over the past eight years, the censor has prohibited a total of 2,661 news stories from seeing the light of day,” the article added.

Israel cuts water supply to 2,600 Palestinians in Jordan Valley

Israeli forces and the Israeli Civil Administration cut the water supply to 2,600 of Palestinians living in communities in Bardala village in the Jordan Valley, northern occupied West Bank, yesterday.

Mutaz Bisharat, an official who monitors settlement activity in Tubas/Jordan Valley, told Ma’an that Israeli forces cut off water supply for 60 per cent of residents of the Bardala village; amounting to 2,600 people.

Israeli forces also cut off water supplies for 1,800-2,000 dunams (445-494 acres) of Palestinian agricultural lands that must be continuously irrigated.

Bisharat added that Israel claims that water sources in the area are illegal, adding that this cannot be true because the water comes from wells in the village and inside Palestinian lands.

Israel demolishes Palestinians’ well in southern Hebron

Israeli occupation forces demolished a water well in the Umm Al-Nir village in southern Hebron, in the southern occupied West Bank, today.

Locals said that an Israeli bulldozer, escorted by large numbers of Israeli soldiers, demolished a water well in the village.

Umm Al-Nir is located near Susiya village in the South Hebron Hills.

The South Hebron Hills, known locally as Masafer Yatta, lie almost entirely in Area C, the 62 per cent of the West Bank under full Israeli civil and security control since the 1993 Oslo Accords.

Masafer Yatta residents were expelled at the time of the establishment of a firing zone in the 1970s and were eventually allowed back following a long court battle, but are under the constant threat of being expelled or seeing their homes demolished.

Why the media fails to cover Palestine with accuracy and empathy

Often dubbed an open-air prison on account of Israel's and Egypt's ongoing air, land and sea blockade of the coastal enclave, Gaza is, according to Amnesty International and several other rights groups, on the brink of a humanitarian disaster.

In February, Antonio Guterres, the United Nations secretary-general, highlighted the crisis, saying that the near two million Palestinians of the besieged strip "remain mired in increasing poverty and unemployment, with limited access to adequate health, education, water and electricity".

But the mainstream media does not always succeed in telling Palestine's contemporary story with accuracy and empathy.

On Thursday, in the Scottish city of Glasgow, experts discussed the media's role in covering one of the most pressing and divisive issues in international politics.

“Whenever there are high-profile incidents involving self-driving vehicles or the testing of them, we see that consumers then…their level of fear as far as these vehicles are concerned, increases,” said Ragina Cooper Averella, AAA Mid-Atlantic.

Last May, a driverless Uber hit and killed an Arizona woman crossing the street. And though incredibly rare, crashes like this have changed perceptions nationwide.

Trump reignites criticism of McCain months after senator's death

President Trump belittled and mocked the late Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) in a pair of tweets this weekend, reigniting criticism of the widely respected lawmaker seven months after his death.

Trump's tweets renewed his long-simmering disdain for McCain, who died in August after a battle with brain cancer. The criticism prompted McCain's friends, family and former colleagues from both sides of the aisle to defend him and came amid a broader discussion over whether Trump's rhetoric has contributed to inflamed tensions internationally.

Amid a flurry of tweets that touched on the shootings at two mosques in New Zealand, perceived bias on "Saturday Night Live" and controversial comments from Fox News hosts, Trump twice on Saturday and Sunday singled out McCain for criticism.

Trump referenced reports that court papers showed an aide for the late senator had shared a dossier of allegations, some unverified, about Trump's ties to Russia with the FBI and the media.

Citizens for a Nuclear Free Iran, which was launched in the summer of 2015 to rally opposition to the Iran deal, paid the money to the Center for Security Policy, according to a report Wednesday by LobeLog, a Middle East policy news and analysis site.

Verizon. Pfizer. Bank of America. U.S. Corporations Are Funding Israeli Settlements.

The corporate foundations of Verizon, Pfizer, Bank of America, Deutsche Bank, American Express and JPMorgan Chase have collectively given over $25,000 to U.S. nonprofits that send money to Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank, according to tax records from 2001 to 2016 reviewed by In These Times.

A large network of U.S. nonprofits raises millions of dollars annually to send to Israeli settlements, which are built on Palestinian land and are considered illegal under international law. Some Israeli settlers violently harass Palestinians and burn down their crops. Israeli settlers have also killed Palestinians.

Tax records reviewed by In These Times show that Israeli settlements have a surprising source of funds: the foundations of some of the most well-known U.S. corporations.

Italy to BLOCK Brexit delay: Salvini plans eurosceptic favour to Farage, warns Merkel ally

Mr Brok, a close ally of German Chancellor Angela Merkel, insisted there were “very different views” across the EU over Theresa May's request to extend the bloc’s Article 50 exit clause. Any Brexit delay will require a unanimous decision by all leaders at the European Council summit on Thursday afternoon. Mr Brok has begged for a short delay until May 23 to avoid new British MEPs having to be elected to the European Parliament.

The Army Is Rebuilding its Ammunition Stores for the Next Fight

The head of Army Materiel Command said recently that he is putting a high priority on munitions readiness to make sure Army units are prepared for the next war.

"This means having the right munitions – small-caliber to precision munitions – where we need them at the right time and the right place," Gen. Gus Perna told an audience at a March 14 Association of the United States Army event. "That means we must first ensure that the capability we have here in [the U.S.] can receive, store and issue munitions in a timely, effective manner."

Perna's comments come at a time when the Army continues to replenish its ammunition stocks as it prepares to face an equally formidable foe such as Russia or China on the battlefield.

Air Force Asks for 4,400 More Airmen, New F-15EX Fighter in Budget Request

The U.S. Air Force is hoping to grow its total force by 4,400 airmen, add a new fighter to its inventory, and pump more money into weapon sustainment and ongoing research programs, such as the B-21 Long Range Strike Bomber project, according to the service's fiscal 2020 budget request.

As anticipated, the Air Force will officially ask to fund eight brand-new F-15EX fourth-plus generation fighters at a cost of $1.05 billion to gradually begin replacing its older F-15C/D Eagle fleet, the budget documents reveal. Service officials recently disclosed the Air Force needs to boost its fighter inventory, but it had not expected to do so with an F-15X variant.

California Scientists Developing Cow-Free Dairy Milk From GMO Yeast and 3D Printed Milk Proteins

While most countries across the world continue to eschew virtually all food creations originating from the lab rather than the farmstead (especially in Europe, where nearly 20 countries banned GMOs in 2015), the United States is charging full-steam ahead toward a completely new type of food system.

This emerging system places scientists at the forefront of food production, not farmers.

In many cases, lab-made food companies start with admirable goals of ending or minimizing animal suffering, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and other similar missions.

But critics wonder why these novel foods are being rushed to market without long term safety testing at a time when increasing amounts of synthetic foods are being allowed into the U.S. supply.

BREAKING DOWN THE “MEASLES EPIDEMIC” SCAM

Why does this matter?

Because the government is using this issue to experiment with suspending the First Amendment.

They have succeeded in getting Facebook, Google and Amazon to censor SCIENTIFIC information.

Coming later this week…we found a direct connection between the vaccine industry and the recent Wired article smearing the work of legitimate autism researchers.

Essential viewing – and sharing.

Remember That Time When Jared Kushner’s Dad Donated $2.5M to Harvard and Then His Son Got Into Harvard?

Turns out that wealthy people including actresses, actors and business folks have been involved in a scandal that includes all kinds of crazy allegations to get their children into prestigious institutions.

But it looks like the president’s son-in-law, holder of Ivanka’s hand and a security clearance he didn’t earn, was ahead of the curve. Author Daniel Golden put Jared Kushner’s game on front street in his 2006 book, The Price of Admission, where he questioned how Kushner, a mediocre student at best, was accepted to one of America’s most prestigious institutions: Harvard.

9TH CIRCUIT REBUFFS U.S. GOVERNMENT IN BUNDY CASE

A federal appeals court has put a roadblock in front of the government’s attempt to appeal a district judge’s decision to throw out its case against Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy on the grounds of prosecutorial misconduct.

Bundy and other family members were charged after an armed standoff at their ranch over grazing fees the government claimed they had not paid. The government confiscated some of the family’s cattle, supporters from across the nation gathered and the standoff ensued. The feds eventually backed down.

But when the government put Bundy and others on trial for their actions, the case collapsed.

The Bundys’ lawyer, Larry Klayman, has written about the DOJ’s actions, in his WND columns as well as on the Cliven Bundy Legal Defense Fund site.

Cheers and howls after CNN host says Brexit is transforming Britain into a ‘banana republic’

Britain is showing signs of a failed state amid growing anxiety about its plans to leave the European Union, CNN host Fareed Zakaria has warned. His grim diagnosis was met with both approval and eye-rolling on social media.
Speaking on his CNN political show ‘GPS,’ Zakaria argued that thanks to Brexit, the UK was marching towards disaster.

“Britain, famous for its prudence, propriety and punctuality, is suddenly looking like a banana republic as it makes reckless decisions, misrepresents reality and now wants to change its own self-imposed deadline,” Zakaria said in a segment that aired on Sunday. Dismissing the pro-Brexit claim that the EU has become a “statist juggernaut,” the CNN host quipped: “Britain’s Conservatives have gone nuts.”

French air crash investigators say ‘clear similarities’ between Boeing 737 MAX crashes

A team of French air crash investigators say they have found “clear similarities” between last week’s Ethiopian Airlines crash and last October’s Lion Air disaster. Both 737 MAX aircraft plunged nose-first to their doom.

"During the verification process of the FDR (flight data recorder) data, clear similarities were noted by the investigation team between Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 and Lion Air Flight 610, which will be the subject of further study during the investigation," the BEA said in a statement.

The Cambridge Analytica scandal changed the world – but it didn't change Facebook

It can be hard to remember from down here, beneath the avalanche of words and promises and apologies and blogposts and manifestos that Facebook has unleashed upon us over the course of the past year, but when the Cambridge Analytica story broke one year ago, Mark Zuckerberg’s initial response was a long and deafening silence.

It took five full days for the founder and CEO of Facebook – the man with total control over the world’s largest communications platform – to emerge from his Menlo Park cloisters and address the public. When he finally did, he did so with gusto, taking a new set of talking points (“We have a responsibility to protect your data, and if we can’t then we don’t deserve to serve you”) on a seemingly unending roadshow, from his own Facebook page to the mainstream press to Congress and on to an oddly earnest discussion series he’s planning to subject us to at irregular intervals for the rest of 2019.

28 MINUTE VIDEO – BEHAVIOR MODIFICATION – YOURS – LESS PROSPERITY, LESS FREEDOM, MORE OPPRESSION, MORE GOVERNMENT!!!

This is one of many outrages going on around the country to destroy quality of life for all but the most wealthy and elite. YOU will live in a dinky $2,500 a month apartment right next to a train and bus route on a busy and noisy thoroughfare where you will be allowed, under close supervision, to eke out a meager living of cramped housing, bland diet with minimal food, a tight budget for water, an uninspired monolithic wardrobe (no MAGA hats), no rights other than what the government allows you, and mediocre medical care so you can SAVE THE PLANET! Socialism is wonderful – isn’t it? Or, maybe it’s just the rich man’s ruse to rip you off – so what else is new? Investigate the U.N.’s Charter, Agenda 21, or Agenda 2030 for some perspective, and remember, the United Nations IS NOT YOUR FRIEND!
