Media Manipulation: Story About Immigrant 'Kids In Cages' Scrubbed After UN Said It Happened On Obama's Watch

The media is now self-censoring when the numbers don’t align with their narrative. The thought manipulation of the public is on full display. Rather than issue a correction, several news agencies have instead opted to delete a story stating that 100,000 migrant children were detained in US border facilities. This decision to delete comes after the United Nations clarified that the number is years old, predating the age of Trump, according to RT.

Why Trump’s Hawks Back the MEK Terrorist Cult

Just as the Bush administration paraded Iraqi-Americans on TV in 2002 begging the US to bomb Iraq, Secretary Mike Pompeo will use his event in California on Sunday with the Iranian-American community to give the impression that Iranian-Americans back Trump’s policy of destabilizing Iran.

It’s a classic page out of the Iraq-war playbook.

And if there was any doubt about the Trump administration’s intentions, the coziness of members of his team with the MEK terror cult is instructive of the administration’s end game. In fact, at least one member of the MEK has been invited to Pompeo’s speech.

House Lawmakers Extend Section 215 into Next Year Even Though They Had Years to Stop Illegal Overcollection of Americans’ Sensitive Data

By India McKinney

With federal agencies set to run out of money this week, House lawmakers today passed a short-term funding bill that contained a nasty surprise. Tucked into the end of this must-pass legislation, in a section titled “Other Matters,” is language reauthorizing three Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) authorities currently set to expire on December 15, 2019. The new expiration date would be March 15, 2020.

The extension of these surveillance authorities, even for three months, is bad enough. Hiding the language in the back of a must-pass funding bill shows a patent disregard for the importance of this issue...

Trump Notifies Congress More Troops Headed To Saudi Arabia As Carrier Enters Hormuz

So much for drawing down in the Middle East. President Trump notified Congress on Tuesday that more American troops are en route to Saudi Arabia, which will bring their overall numbers to about 3,000 in the kingdom.

"These personnel will remain deployed as long as their presence is required to fulfill the missions described above," the president said in a letter.

The official White House notification of Congressional members described the American military presence there as essential in countering Iran's influence in the region.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"En Route" means, having been formally deployed, and on the way.

The only question left is, how soon they will arrive, or how many of these 3,000 troops have already reported for duty?

But to be honest, the timing of this increase in the US military presence in Saudi Arabia concerns me greatly.

Very few celebrations are more iconically American than is Thanksgiving, happening next week, with Americans chowing down on the traditional Thanksgiving meal, and watching football in rapt attention.

One has to wonder if the IDF doesn't have a "false flag" scheduled for right around this holiday, to be blamed, of course, on Iran and Syria, and off we go.....

I hope I am completely wrong on this but, when it comes to geopolitical ploys, timing...is everything.

FACEBOOK: MARK ZUCKERBERG’S FAKE ACCOUNTS PONZI SCHEME

SOURCE: NAKED CAPITALISM
Yves here. We edited this important post from a version on Aaron Greenspan’s website. Lambert reordered it to make the likely magnitude of Facebook fake accounts the starting point, which we see as the most damning evidence against Facebook. Most people accept the proposition that Mark Zuckerberg is running a less than trustworthy business that among other things, has no concern for the safekeeping of personal information. But the idea that his business looks like a Ponzi scheme is a new disclosure and merits a hard look.

By Aaron Greenspan, founder of the Think Computer Corporation1

Facebook now has a market capitalization approaching $600 billion, making it nominally one of the most valuable companies on earth. It’s a true business miracle: a company that was out of users in 2012 managed to find a wellspring of nearly infinite and sustained growth that has lasted it, so far, half of the way through 2019.

ANONYMOUS HACKS CHINA AS CHINESE MILITARY MOVES ON HONG KONG, STUDENTS TRAPPED AT POLYTECHNIC UNIVERSITY

BY AARON KESEL
Anonymous has hacked into various Chinese websites and databases dumping files from government employee data to corporate data including user names, mobile phone numbers, email addresses, passwords for databases, IP addresses and more. It is all a part of what the collective is calling #OpHongKong and they vow these actions will continue until Hongkongers’ demands are met and Hong Kong is free.

This writer spoke to OpHongKong via email who sent a tip that the decentralized hacktivist collective, Anonymous, has initiated “OpHongKong” no-holds-barred hacks against China for the escalation against Hong Kong protesters, holding students hostage at Polytechnic University; and for what China is doing to Muslim Uighurs in concentration camps, as well as its own people with its Orwellian facial recognition surveillance-state.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That the protestors didn't realize that this was coming, or what the outcome would most probably be, signaled an intense failure of imagination on their parts.

And for the Communist officials, at the end of the day, I would suggest that there is only so much repression a human being can handle, and if there is any more heaped against them, they will react aggressively, which appears to be happening here.

The big question, and one which may cause China's President Xi some sleepless nights, is, where do things go from here?!? How intensely will China punish this revolt's ringleaders? With a bullet to the brain, for which their families will be charged?!?

Because Hong Kong is Hong Kong, Xi may well not be able to "stage manage" the narrative quite as closely or cleanly as he would like; there will be a lot of media attention, specifically in terms of how the police were behaving, and Xi understands that.

But how this will continue to unfold, is anyone's guess, at the moment; the one think Xi dares not do, is to allow these demonstrations to get even further out of control.

LEAKS REVEAL HOW THE "PITBULL OF PR" HELPED PURDUE PHARMA AND THE SACKLERS IGNITE THE OPIOID CRISIS

The leaks reveal how Dezenhall took credit for the work of psychiatrist Sally Satel, a "resident scholar" at the American Enterprise Institute, the DC thinktank notorious for its advocacy for the tobacco industry, against Net Neutrality, against Dodd-Frank, against a national minimum wage, and in favor of climate denial and the Iraq invasion.

Satel penned a series of editorials and gave numerous media appearances that furthered the "blame the victim" narrative for the opioid epidemic, drawing on research funded by the Sacklers and Purdue, which ran under headlines like "Oxy Morons" (WSJ) and "OxyContin doesn’t cause addiction. Its abusers are already addicts" (Forbes).

Purdue were $50,000/year funders of AEI, something that Satel says she didn't know about (she also says that she didn't know that the research she cited in her articles was funded by Purdue).

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When the love of money corrupts people to the point where they are selling out their brothers and sisters to a drug which has horrifically addictive properties, it is an absolute bet, that they have had their consciences surgically removed before so doing.

EPSTEIN’S JAIL GUARDS TO FACE CRIMINAL CHARGES

The correctional officers haven’t yet been named. It’s very possible that New York prosecutors will seek to use them as patsies to deflect skepticism from the official narrative surrounding Epstein’s death.

The guards have apparently been offered a plea deal that they declined, setting the stage for legal proceedings that could shine light on Epstein’s death.

The authorities’ official story maintains the billionaire pedophile committed suicide in his own jail cell, hanging himself with bed sheets when jail guards weren’t looking. Epstein’s close personal connections to neoliberal political elites such as Bill Clinton and the UK’s Prince Andrew have lead to an abundance of alternative explanations, with a plurality of Americans doubting the jail’s version of events.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The cold, hard truth of the business is that, given the circumstances, Epstein was a "live liability" for many of the monied, and celebrity-centric; therefore, one way or the other, he had to be either exterminated with extreme prejudice; or, if those upon whom he had compromising information, understood that he had a functioning "dead man's switch" in place, whisked out of the country to a place where no one could find him.

Ever since the assassination of President Kennedy, this country has been stumbling into becoming another banana republic, where political assassinations, both inside the country, and outside of it, have become routine.

I weep for the country I thought I knew, as a kid.

SMART HOME TECH CAN HELP EVICT RENTERS, SURVEILLANCE COMPANY TELLS LANDLORDS

SOURCE: CNET.COM
Internet-connected locks and facial recognition systems have raised privacy concerns among tenants across the country. A sales pitch directed at landlords by a smart-home security company indicates that the technology could help them raise rental prices and potentially get people evicted.

A smart intercom company called Teman GateGuard has been pitching its surveillance technology to landlords in New York as a way to sidestep rent-control regulations in the city, according to emails reviewed by CNET.

The email's subject line says, "GateGuard: 3 Steps to de-stabilize NYC units -- even after the new law!" and opens with the sentence, "You CAN raise rents in NYC!"

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Again, we appear to have regressed to Code Napoleon Law, where people are presumed guilty until proven innocent; not at all a great thing, in my book.

And secondly, it absolutely tears down any modicum of trust between the building owner and the tenant, particularly if they are a good tenant, who pays on time, but now realizes that they can be surveilled at the owner's whim.

“The two guards are charged in New York with falsifying documents and conspiracy to defraud the U.S.“

CLINTON FOUNDATION FILES $16.8 MILLION LOSS

SOURCE: SUMMIT.NEWS
The numbers don’t lie, Hillary’s name is poison

Hillary Clinton’s name is pure poison and no one in their right mind wants anything to do with her.

This is evidenced nowhere more in the fact that the Clinton Foundation has gone from turning over a revenue of almost $400 million in 2013, to actually LOSING almost $33 million since Donald Trump wiped the floor with Hillary in 2016.

Newly released tax records show that the foundation reported a loss of almost $17 million in 2018, to add to the net loss of $16.1 million the previous year in 2017.

The numbers don’t lie.

Total revenue reported for 2018 was just $30.7 million, less than a tenth of what was being pulled in While Hillary was Secretary of State.

Only $24.2 million was posted in grants and contributions, which constitutes a record low for the “charity.” Expenses amounted to $47.5 million, hence a loss of $16.8 million.

Couldn't have happened to a more "deserving" couple, than to the "Gruesome Twosom", Bill and Hill.

ISIS SECRETS SPILLED IN RARE ON-CAMERA INTERVIEWS: "WE JUST WALKED INTO SYRIA"

SOURCE: ZERO HEDGE
Over the years of the war in Syria, an overwhelming amount of evidence has amassed documenting that the so-called 'Islamic State' caliphate was established after tens of thousands of ISIS and other foreign fighters were allowed to pour across Turkey's southern border into Syria.

That NATO's second largest military with the help of its allies such as the US, Britain, France, and Gulf countries like Saudi Arabia and Qatar facilitated what the State Department in 2014 described as the largest mass movement of jihadist terrorists in modern history should be a scandal of monumental importance, yet the mainstream media predictably ignored it and "moved on".

And now more bombshell proof of state sponsorship behind the prior rapid rise of ISIS: below are details exposed during unprecedented on-camera interviews of imprisoned ISIS members in Syria spilling all. They confess openly that Turkish military and intelligence simply let them "just walk into Syria".

  US NATIONAL DEBT SPIKED BY $1.3 TRILLION IN 12 MONTHS, TO $23 TN. BUT WHO BOUGHT THIS PILE OF TREASURY SECURITIES?

BUT WHO THE HECK IS BUYING ALL THIS DEBT?
Every dollar of this debt exists in form of Treasury securities that someone must have bought and must own. In terms of foreign holders, we got some answers in the Treasury Department’s TIC data today, which shows how much of this debt was held, bought, or dumped by foreign investors through the end of September. And we can glue the other pieces together from the Fed’s balance sheet and from the Treasury Department’s disclosures.

FOREIGN HOLDERS DUMPED IN SEPTEMBER BUT ARE WAY AHEAD YEAR-OVER-YEAR.
All foreign investors combined – “foreign official” holders such as central banks and foreign private-sector investors of all stripes – dumped $84 billion in US Treasury securities in September. But compared to September 2018, their holdings were up by a massive $551 billion.

WE STILL DON’T KNOW WHAT GINA HASPEL REALLY KNEW ABOUT THE CIA’S TORTURE PROGRAM

“I was not even read into the interrogation program until it had been up and running for a year,” Haspell told the Committee. But Haspel’s claims raised more than a few eyebrows. For one, the CIA began its torture program in the summer of 2002. By late 2002, Haspel was overseeing waterboarding at a black site detention center in Thailand, one of a number of countries exposed in a 2005 Washington Post report as territories being used for torture by the US to dodge judicial oversight.

Later reporting would reveal that Haspel also played a role in the CIA’s destruction of 92 tapes related to the CIA’s torture program. As such, the idea that the 34-year CIA vet wasn’t fully versed in—if not directly involved in—the program has long strained credulity.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There were a number of people beside myself, who were singularly disappointed when Haspel was nominated, and confirmed, as head of the CIA.

Back in World War II, there was a German interrogator who was incredibly gifted at what he did; the guy was one Hanns Scharff Bio: Hanns Scharff

Between the two World Wars,, he learned to speak a very excellent English, and was assigned to British and American prisoners of war.

But there was one thing he absolutely never did, and that was torture, or attempt to cause any kind of physical or mental anguish; instead, he made the men he questioned think that he already knew everything there was to know about their operation, and would frequently take them out on day passes for cultural events. And this was the way he got good intelligence from his sessions with the men he was questioning.

After the war, he was so respected by the Americans military, that they invited him to military universities to teach his techniques.

In the confirmation of Haspel as Director of the CIA, it appears that Congress was more comfortable with someone whose concepts of human rights was just to the right of those of Attila the Hun, rather than with a figure like Scharff, if we even had someone like him under consideration at the time.

Additionally, Congress and the military needed someone who could "keep a lid" on earlier, potentially explosive torture/war crimes about which the American public still does not know a lot, but which they knew Haspel understood how to do brilliantly.

History will not judge this country kindly, for its Congressional representatives having made this choice.

First, torture does not get actionable information; it gets the torturers to stop torturing because the tortured has "confessed" to some action about which a narrative can be "spun".

Secondly, torturing shows that we only observe our alleged love of human rights only in their breach; not their observation.

And thirdly, when we torture, we give some third world dictator the absolute carte blanche to start torturing American citizens or military personnel.

If ANY of our readers out there are either in the military, or have family and friends who are, that is a very important consideration against any use of torture by the US.

Scharff's life, and what drove him, at the end of the day, to not hurt his prisoners, when the rest of his contemporaries in the Gestapo were cheerily ripping off fingernails of American and British military, slowly, and inflicting as massive an amount of physiological and psychological pain possible, is the point here.

John Noble, the Australian actor, would be a brilliant choice as Scharff, because he has a gift for creating very complex characters, and yet making them truly real.

But I will tell you one thing; whoever makes this film, and whoever stars in it, will have to be, collectively, very brave; because no matter how brilliant the film, it will probably get completely shunned, as was James Cameron's "Avatar", one of the most powerful anti-war movies ever made, when it came up for the Oscar for Best Picture, and the winner that year was "The Hurt Locker."

HOUSE PASSES MONTH-LONG SPENDING BILL WITH TWO DAYS UNTIL SHUTDOWN

The House on Tuesday approved a stopgap spending bill, this time hoping to kick the can on full-year appropriations to Dec. 20.

The measure will now go to the Senate, which is expected to approve the bill before the current continuing resolution expires Thursday. The White House has indicated President Trump will sign the stopgap spending bill to avoid a shutdown. Federal agencies have been operating under a CR since Oct. 1.

Lawmakers negotiated the month-long temporary spending bill to give leadership more time to finalize full-year measures for fiscal 2020, which would set line-by-line appropriations for each federal agency. Still, House Republicans overwhelmingly voted against the stopgap bill.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

No one in Congress really cares about the long-term effect of US debt and deficit, because they are only focused on the next election cycle.

POMPEO ISSUES HISTORIC POLICY REVERSAL: ISRAELI WEST BANK SETTLEMENTS 'NOT ILLEGAL'

SOURCE: ZERO HEDGE
In a major, if entirely expected, complete reversal of Obama-era policy on the Middle East, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced Monday the Trump administration is reversing the official US stance on the illegality of Israeli settlements in the West Bank.

“After carefully studying all sides of the legal debate, this administration agrees with President Reagan,” Pompeo said in reference to Reagan’s view that settlements were not inherently illegal. “The establishment of Israeli civilian settlements in the West Bank is not per se inconsistent with international law,” Pompeo said.

“The Trump administration is reversing the Obama administration’s approach towards Israeli settlements. U.S. public statements on settlement activities in the West Bank have been inconsistent over decades.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Secretary of State Pompeo, are you flipping kidding me?!?

By this "logic", you have started down the "slippery, bloody slope" which will soon necessitate your supporting the following:

1. " Palestine never existed."
2. "All Palestinians who protest peacefully should be shot on sight, including infants and toddlers."
3. Palestinian children should be indefinitely jailed, and if necessary, tortured for "information" on the adults in their family and neighborhood who have said, or done anything, which was anti-Israel in nature, and forced to sign confessions in a language they can neither read, write, nor speak (Hebrew).

As you are well aware, all of these practices have been painstakingly documented to exist.

Also, as you are well aware, the way in which these settlements have been engineered, translates as to a total impossibility for there to be a contiguous Palestinian state, as documented by the following article in January of this year, from the Foundation for Middle East Peace:: Settlement Report: January 11, 2019

The article goes on to state: "Israeli officials have argued that the now-open road should resolve international objections to building the E-1 settlement, since it preserves “transportational continuity” by providing a route for Palestinians to travel between between the northern and southern parts of the West Bank, as a substitute for territorial contiguity of a future Palestinian state).

When construction on the road resumed in 2017 after being stalled for a long period, Peace Now explained:

“If the road will be completed…Israel will be able to argue that Israeli construction in the area does not separate the West Bank because there is a transportation route for Palestinians. This argument, of course, is baseless because a thin line of road that connects separated territorial sections (creating ‘transportational continuity’) does not meet the need for the territorial contiguity essential for the development of East Jerusalem and the Palestinian metropolis. Without these territories, a viable independent Palestinian state cannot be built and prosper, and this could mean the death of the two-state solution.”

Secretary of State Pompeo, I very politely, and gently, urge you to step back from this precipice where you are taking the world, sir; and that precipice is a world war, the outcome of which cannot be pre-determined, and may destroy life on earth as we have known it.

JOE BIDEN IS OUT HERE CALLING CANNABIS A 'GATEWAY DRUG’ IN 2019

Joe Biden’s bold experiment in trying to win the Democratic presidential nomination without a single vote from a young person continued Saturday, when the 76-year-old frontrunner told a crowd in Las Vegas that he doesn’t want to legalize weed because he’s worried that it might lead to harder drugs. Here’s what the former vice president said, according to Business Insider:

"The truth of the matter is, there’s not nearly been enough evidence that has been acquired as to whether or not it is a gateway drug," Biden said. "It’s a debate, and I want a lot more before I legalize it nationally. I want to make sure we know a lot more about the science behind it."

VA RELEASED MILLIONS OF PEOPLE’S PERSONAL DATA DESPITE KNOWN RISKS

The Veterans Affairs Department knowingly disclosed sensitive information on millions of veterans’ doctors, spouses and dependents despite warnings that the practice “could cause those individuals significant harm,” an internal watchdog found.

For more than three years, the Veterans Benefits Administration intentionally stopped redacting names, Social Security numbers and other personally identifiable information on third-party individuals in claims records provided to veterans, according to the VA Inspector General. The practice not only left countless people vulnerable to identity theft but it also potentially broke the law, auditors found.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am having a palm to forehead moment, at warp speed, upon reading this; it appears that, when it comers to divulging data in this way, what the US has, right now, is an ANTI-VETERANS AFFAIRS DEPARTMENT.

Don't get me wrong; I still abhor the concept of war, as the "only way possible" to get what the US government wants as its geostrategic goal.
But that being said, every single Vet in this country deserves both the finest medical care possible, and the most bullet-proof handling of their data, period, end of discussion.

US Dirty Hands Behind Violent Protests in Iran?

All sovereign independent countries not subservient to US interests are on its target list for regime change — by preemptive wars, color revolutions, old-fashioned coups, targeted assassinations, economic terrorism, and/or other hostile actions.

Color revolutions are a US specialty. So-called spontaneous uprisings are well-planned in advance by the CIA, the undemocratic National Endowment for Democracy, and other US agencies.

A color revolution was first used to oust Serbia’s Slobodan Milosevic in 2000. Opposition elements were recruited and trained by the US for what played out.

US CALLS ON HAFTAR TO END TRIPOLI PUSH, WARNS AGAINST RUSSIA ROLE

The United States has called on Libyan renegade General Khalifa Haftar to stop a months-long offensive on Tripoli and said it would back the country’s internationally recognised government against "Russia’s attempts to exploit the conflict".

The statement was the most explicit call by Washington against the self-styled Libyan National Army of Haftar, who was earlier praised by President Donald Trump.

"The United States calls on the 'Libyan National Army’ to end its offensive on Tripoli," the US State Department said in a joint statement released on Thursday after talks with a delegation from Libya’s Tripoli-based Government of National Accord in Washington.

Libya has been split between rival camps based in Tripoli and the east since 2014, a result of the divisions that surfaced following the NATO-backed overthrow of long-time ruler Muammar Gaddafi three years earlier.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

More Russia bashing in Libya, courtesy of the New York Times; and notice, the last paragraph, in which it is stated, that "...the Russian mercenaries were believed to be controlled by an ally of President Vladimir Putin, an allegation denied by Moscow.

PROOF BE DAMNED!! We only want a SUGGESTION that Russia is supporting Haftar, and off the US government is ready to..... go and do what, precisely?!?

Are we going to offer more troops to NATO, with which to fight Haftar's troops, and the so-called Russian mercs, allegedly under Moscow's control?!?

A Decap Strike on Moscow?!?

This is the kind of foreign policy decision one can always expect from the US government, when International Policy becomes driven by dartboard, rather than driven by the best logic and intel possible; and the folks fabricating this policy toward Libya and Haftar, are not even looking at the same bloody dartboard, complicating things even further!!!

BANNON WANTED ERIC CIARAMELLA KICKED OFF NATIONAL SECURITY COUNCIL AMID CONCERNS OVER LEAKS

SOURCE: ZEROHEDGE
Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon said in a Friday interview that in 2017, he was involved in an effort to remove alleged whistleblower Eric Ciaramella from the National Security Council over concerns about leaks.
"When I was in the White House there was a number of people in the National Security Council — the named individual eventually got let go, I believe because people were suspicious, not me, but other people around him were suspicious about his leaking, and that’s why he was let go," Bannon told VICE in an interview which published Friday.

Bannon served in the White House until August 2017, while Ciaramella - who became former National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster’s personal aide in June 2017, was called out as a leaker by journalist Mike Cernovich that same month.

The whistleblower, who is reported to be a CIA analyst, filed a complaint on Aug. 12 accusing President Donald Trump of abusing his office in his dealings with Ukraine.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would politely like to suggest that Republicans force Eric Ciaramella to testify, and get this done before what is left of his staff has prepared a list of countries with which the US has no extradition treaty for him to review.

Because, if not, the guy will most certainly skip town, big-time, if he has the opportunity.

AFTER REMOVING UKRAINIAN PROSECUTOR SHOKIN, OBAMA’S STATE DEPARTMENT PLOTTED WITH WHISTLEBLOWER ERIC CIARAMELLA IN WHITE HOUSE – THEN PUSHED STEELE DOSSIER TO FBI

SOURCE: THE GATEWAY PUNDIT
The Obama Administration coerced the Ukrainian government into removing the prosecutor investigating Ukrainian firm Burisma and its ties to Obama’s Vice President Biden and Secretary of State John Kerry. Next they plotted with whistleblower Eric Ciaramella in the White House and then pushed the Steele dossier to the FBI.

We know that Obama State Department Victoria Nuland was involved in numerous activities in the Obama White House while working for John Kerry. Nuland first was noted when she was caught lying to reporters about Obama’s Benghazi talking points. Nuland then came to light in 2014 when she was caught on tape saying “F**k the EU”.

We also know that Obama’s State and Justice Departments assisted billionaire and Democrat donor George Soros in an attempt to control Ukraine’s oil and gas industry.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Yes, President Obama was supposed to have been our "cool President"; but looking at these allegations, if they are proven true, means that his "WOW factor" just gotten overridden by this "OW! Factor", in terms of plotting to overthrown a duly elected President and Congress.

And now, irony of ironies, the Demoncratic Party has taken the same page from their own failed playbook, to attempt to destroy President Trump.

I would like to politely suggest, that this is doomed to go "just as well" as did the "anointing" of Ukraine's "election" of Poroshenko, who just drove the corruption in this failed nation-state deeper, and faster, than anyone could have anticipated.

US CONGRESS CRACKS DOWN ON ABC NEWS FOR ‘EPSTEIN COVERUP’, DEMANDS TO KNOW WHO KILLED THE STORY AND WHY

SOURCE: RT
In the wake of explosive revelation that ABC News allegedly knew the extent of Jeffrey Epstein’s crimes years ago but chose not to report them, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy has demanded answers from the network’s execs.
In his letter to ABC News president James Goldston, McCarthy demanded the names of those involved in the decision not to run the story, as well as their motives. In a video clip leaked earlier this month, ABC News anchor Amy Robach is caught on a “hot mic” speaking to colleagues about the alleged cover-up.

“I’ve had this interview with Virginia Roberts...we would not put it on the air,” Robach says about the woman who now three years later publicly accuses Epstein of using her as a sex slave, and pimping her out to his powerful friends, including Britain’s Prince Andrew.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Media power always cracks down on any exposure on corruption, because, most generally, very powerful people include some of the most corrupt in their own industries, and frequently government.

And I would strongly caution Minority Leader McCarthy that, unless your life has been virtuously squeaky clean, these people, and will, can come back to haunt you.

Bolivia’s coup: Morales toppled not due to his failures, but due to his success

Questions remain about the circumstances that led to Morales’ ouster, and whether foreign governments played a role in it. But recent history provides reason to suspect that Bolivia’s rich natural resources are part of the answer.
In a near empty room, a Bolivian military official placed the presidential sash over Jeanine Anez Chavez, a senator from the Beni region who didn’t run the country’s recent election. The ardently Christian politician carried a Bible with her into the ceremony, which consolidated the coup d’etat in the Andean country.

No playing around: US Army’s new card decks feature Russian, Chinese & Iranian weapons ‘to learn more about adversaries’

The Russian-made S-400 air defense system – the one that triggers US threats of sanctions for nations if they decide to buy it – can actually help an American soldier to win a battle... in a card game.
The S-400 [or SA-21 Growler in NATO nomenclature] is a joker in a new line of card decks for the US army, an all-mighty card of many faces capable of incinerating an enemy.

The second joker in the Russia-themed deck is the Iskander tactical missile system [SS-26 Stone in NATO nomenclature] with its 9M729 missile that was used by Washington as a pretext for quitting the INF Treaty, despite Russia’s assurances that it did not violate the agreement.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This...does not bode well for peace in this world.

New Legislation Will Throw People In Jail For Disrespecting Cops

Authored by Matt Agorist via TheFreeThoughtProject.com,

In the land of the free, the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution explicitly prohibits the government from abridging the freedom of speech. However, we’ve seen citizens pepper-sprayed, assaulted, and arrested for there acts of free speech, showing just how little law enforcement cares about upholding the oaths they swore to this very Constitution. Now, a new piece of legislation that is quickly passing through the legal process in New York goes one step further.

In a vote this week, lawmakers in the Monroe County Legislature passed a proposal in a 17-10 vote to fine and/or jail a person who annoys, alarms or threatens the personal safety of an officer. The jail sentence is up to one year and the fine is up to $5,000.

According to the legislation, the anti-disrespecting applies to all first responders, not just cops.

Exposing The Brennan Dossier: All About A Prime Mover Of Russiagate

Authored by Aaron Maté via RealClearInvestigations.com,

In the waning days of the Obama administration, the U.S. intelligence community produced a report saying Russian President Vladimir Putin had tried to swing the 2016 election to Donald Trump.

The January 2017 report, called an Intelligence Community Assessment, followed months of leaks to the media that had falsely suggested illicit ties between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin while also revealing that such contacts were the subject of a federal investigation. Its release cast a pall of suspicion over Trump just days before he took office, setting the tone for the unfounded allegations of conspiracy and treason that have engulfed his first term.

What was Brennan's motive? Among the possibilities is hostility within his camp toward Michael Flynn (foreground), Trump's future reform-minded national security adviser.

Assange's Judge Out After Military/Intel-Linked Conflicts Of Interest Exposed

Via ConsortiumNews.com,

Lady Emma Arbuthnot, the Westminster chief magistrate enmeshed in a conflict of interest, will no longer be presiding over the extradition proceedings of imprisoned WikiLeaks publisher Julian Assange, said WikiLeaks lawyer Jen Robinson, at an event in Sydney on Friday night .

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This may be cold comfort, but those who support Assange understand that this may be a minor miracle in the case; But Assange is going to need many more not to either get assassinated at Belmarsh, or held in captivity in the US, for the rest of his life, after a kangaroo jury convicts him.

China Sails Carrier Strike Group Through Taiwan Straight After US Navy Transited Contested Waters

A Chinese aircraft carrier fleet has sailed through the highly contested waters in the Taiwan Strait on Sunday, just days after a US warship transited the region, reported Reuters.

China's first domestically built aircraft carrier, known as the Type 002, was accompanied by a strike group as it sailed through the waterway from the East China Sea into the strait on Sunday, the Defense Ministry in Taipei said in a statement.

Last Tuesday, the US Navy sent the USS Chancellorsville, a guided-missile cruiser, on a "routine Taiwan Strait transit," the navy said.

As a result of Type 002 and its strike group transiting the strait, Taiwanese military authorities scrambled fighter jets to monitor the continuing situation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

President Trump, a word, please; the last thing we need right now, is a shooting war with China over ANYTHING.

I do not know what the Pentagon Chain of Command is telling you about US capabilities right now, but we do not have the troop strength; we do not have the weaponry; we do not have the money; and we do not have the manufacturing to support a positive outcome to a conventional war against China.

It is sincerely time to get the trade war sorted out, and figure out how the US can work in cooperation with China on a number of fronts, science and technology being a couple of great places with which to start.

A war with China, at this point in time, would be a really, officially horrible thing to contemplate.

Trump Promises Farmers More Aid Amid Plunging Incomes 

President Trump tweeted:

Our great Farmers will receive another major round of “cash,” compliments of China Tariffs, prior to Thanksgiving. The smaller farms and farmers will be big beneficiaries. In the meantime, and as you may have noticed, China is starting to buy big again. Japan deal DONE. Enjoy!

One reason behind the continued bailout of US farmers is because the trade war continues to deepen as there is no resolution in ending trade disputes with China.

There's also a significant concern that the first round of bailouts went to large corporate farms and never trickled down to smaller mom-and-pop ones. By late year, farm incomes have plunged, and farm bankruptcies are soaring across the country.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mr. President, this comes way too little, and way too late to help out those most savagely hit by your trade wars; US farmers are losing money hand over fist; and losing their farms at a record rate in this country.

You may well have done considerable damage to your base for the 2020 elections, and sir, on this; you have no one else but yourself to blame.

Are Democrats "Gerrymandering The Population" With Their Open-Borders Plans?

As The Daily Caller's Virginia Kruta notes, Davi also referenced the Immigration and Naturalization Act, passed by former President Lyndon B. Johnson and “argued by Teddy Kennedy,” saying that they had promised the law would not encourage further illegal immigration.

“This is what’s happening, it’s pure and simple,” Davi continued.

“What they want to do is change the shape and the ideology of this nation by letting people in that have not been educated in the system. Trish, I was just in New York, I spoke to immigrant cab drivers from Bangladesh to the Dominican Republic, guys that are working their butts off that have been here legally, and they’re angry.”

HK Police Given Green Light For 'Lethal Force' As Student 'Rioters' Use Fire Bombs, Arrows

update: The battle over student protester-occupied Polytechnic University grew more violent over the weekend and grabbed headlines Sunday after a police officer was wounded by an arrow and a riot control vehicle attempting to disperse what HK authorities have labelled 'rioters' was set aflame by dozens of Molotov cocktails.

Chinese state media has now labeled the student protesters "terrorists" and has urged police to deploy live fire given the students themselves are in possession of deadly weapons. After a night of mayhem into the early hours of Monday (local time), it appears a violent showdown is imminent, as Reuters reports police now consider 'live fire' an option:

Hong Kong police threatened on Monday (Nov 18) to use live bullets if “rioters” used lethal weapons and committed other acts of violence, after the latest flare up during five months of anti-government protests in the Chinese ruled city.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It was only a matter of time before the Chinese government greenlit "termination with extreme prejudice"; but what happens if this doesn't calm down/end the riots?!?

Hong Kong protesters hurl PETROL BOMBS at volunteers trying to clear roadblocks and shoot ARROWS at police

Demonstrators in Hong Kong attacked common citizens who attempted to free the roads from barricades amid a new round of clashes with police.

A fierce street battle erupted outside the Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) on Sunday, as protesters threw bricks at police, which responded with tear gas and water cannons. The officers were trying to remove the barricades erected by the demonstrators earlier this week, and urged them to stop placing metal spikes on the roads in hopes of piercing the police vehicles’ tires.

Demon Technology: 5G vs. Human Race

LIVING DANGEROUSLY

Over 180 scientists and doctors in almost 40 countries are warning the world about 5G health risks. These scientists spell it out in a recent letter in response to ‘Resolution 1815 of the Council of Europe’:

“We, the undersigned scientists, recommend a moratorium on the roll-out of the fifth generation 5G until potential hazards for human health and the environment have been fully investigated by scientists independent from industry. 5G will substantially increase exposure to radio frequency electromagnetic fields (RF-EMF)… and has been proven to be harmful for humans and the environment.”

If you’re not alarmed about 5G radiation dangers, you should be.

The Real Homosexual Agenda

The homosexual agenda is based on intolerance of anyone who disagrees with them and is a well-coordinated, well-financed, wide-ranging, intensive effort to infiltrate and influence organizations and society at large in order to spread misinformation with the goal of recruiting children. Click for homosexual quotes.

Children are the prize to the winners of the cultural war. Those who control what young people are taught and what they experience will determine the future course for our nation. The predominant value system of an entire culture can be overhauled by those with unlimited access to children. Homosexual activists understand very clearly how important children are to their cause.

The Zionist Path to NWO - US Imperialism

Humanity has a choice between a Communist (Left, globalism)
and Zionist (Right, nationalism) path to world government Rothschild tyranny,
aka "globalism."

The Communist path is epitomized by George Soros and everything
he epitomizes ( Satanism, EU, gender dysphoria, migration.)

If Neocon Thomas Barnett's Pentagon's New Path (2004) is any indication,
US imperialism is the hod carrier for Zionist NWO.

Ultimately, the goal may be to start a world war between
the Communists (Russia, China, Iran & EU?) and the Zionists (US, UK, & Israel?)

The Greatest Intellectual Property Theft in History: Operation Paperclip

The plunder of Germany's scientific and industrial knowledge after World War Two.

The initial purpose of what began as Operation Overcast was to plunder Germany of all its scientific and industrial knowledge after World War Two. The plan was to steal documents and working samples, but the depth and breadth of German industrial knowledge proved much too complex to be usefully understood from a simple examination of documents. In spite of the immense trove of scientific, technical, and industrial knowledge confiscated from Germany, the US failed to benefit due to a lack of know-how. It became quickly apparent that the process would require an extensive debriefing of German scientists and technicians to obtain adequate working knowledge of German industrial and scientific theory and processes.
