Private prisons back Trump and could see big payoffs with new policies

Sessions announcement on prison sentencing is a corrupt payoff to the private prison industry,pure and simple. Wonder how much stock he and Trump have in the private prison industry?

WASHINGTON — Private prison companies, which stand to make big gains under President Trump’s tough new immigration orders, also have contributed big sums to pro-Trump groups, including the organization that raised a record $100 million for his inauguration last month.

For-profit prison companies' hopes for significant gains under the Trump administration already are coming to fruition. On Thursday, the Justice Department rescinded an Obama administration order to phase out the use of private-prison contracts in the federal Bureau of Prisons.

SOURCES CLAIM THAT COMEY FIRING COULD RESULT IN RELEASE OF DOCUMENTS, POTENTIAL NEW CLINTON PROBE

In the wake of Donald Trump’s dismissal of FBI Director James Comey citing “serious mistakes” and mishandling of the Hillary Clinton investigation, emerging information appears to indicate that in the aftermath of Comey’s firing the FBI intends to begin releasing documents on the Clinton investigation and the Department of Justice may request a second look at the investigation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Couldn't happen to a more deserving person than Hillary Clinton!! :-)

With Comey no longer there to protect her, she's got no hedge/insurance that her actions will not be met with intense scrutiny.

Jeff Sessions' Role in Expanding Private Prisons Is Deeper Than You Might Think

"Some of the biggest backers of Donald Trump's presidency were for-profit prison operators, who bask in his tough stance on illegal immigration and glowing reviews of their industry," TV One's Roland Martin explained on Monday.

"I do think we can do a lot of privatizations and private prisons; it seems to work a lot better," Donald Trump told Chris Matthews in an MSNBC town hall on March 30. "When Obama made the decision [to phase out private prisons] in August, the next day, a subsidiary of GEO group, one of the nation's largest for-profit prison operators donated $100,000 dollars to the pro-Trump super PAC Rebuilding America Now," Martin explained.

SEATTLE MAYOR WANTS TO TAX DIET SODA TO FIGHT "WHITE PRIVILEGED INSTITUTIONALIZED RACISM"

Back in February, Seattle's Mayor Ed Murray called for a 2 cent per ounce tax on sugary soft drinks in order to "improve Seattle's educational opportunities for students of color." Per Lynx Media, the tax was expected to raise some $16 million per year.

Of course, when someone on his staff pointed out that a tax on sugary drinks would disproportionately impact the minorities that he was apparently trying to help, Murray knew that something drastic had to happen. So that's when he decided to launch a new attack against the most recognizable symbol of "white privileged institutionalized racism" on the planet: DIET SODA!

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Absoflippinglutely unbelievable!

Are the mayor and city council, perchance, drinking the same water as are California legislators, who want to tax all space launches which happen in their states, by the mile, and have declared that up to 62 one miles, vertical, belongs to the state of California?!?

California Wants To Tax Space Flights... By Miles Traveled

This is the only thing to which I can attribute this utter nonsense on the part of the Seattle government.

If the Seattle City Council wanted to do something positive here, it would ban all sodas which use caramel coloring to make it brown, because this chemical is carcinogenic.Coloring used in some sodas poses cancer risk to consumers, study suggests

HOW HIGHER EDUCATION BECAME AN OBSCENELY PROFITABLE RACKET THAT ENRICHES THE FEW AT THE EXPENSE OF THE MANY (STUDENT DEBT-SERFS)

Student loan lenders are skimming tens of billions in profits guaranteed by the taxpayers.

"Legal" rackets have two essential components: a public-relations "cover" that obscures the racket and the mechanism that extracts the wealth from the "marks." The Higher Education Racket qualifies on both counts:

1. The PR cover is "you all need a college diploma, and we're here to make that happen." Yea for more education!

2. The extraction mechanism is student loans. Here's a chart that shows what happened relatively recently: your federal government began guaranteeing obscene profits to student-loan lenders and debt-serfdom for tens of millions of "marks" i.e. students.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Here's a list of some of the highest paying jobs in this country which do not require a bachelor's degree:

35 high paying jobs which don't require a bachelor's degree

I was very lucky concerning college; I had a double major in music (I am a published composer) and theatre (I do marketing for a living).

But before you go to college and pick a major, you really need to ask yourself, am I getting the "bang" for my buck in terms of that degree really making me employable?!? This is both a hard and necessary question kids need to ask before settling on a major in college.

And some degrees are absolutely useless, in terms of the real world, so when you talk to, and interview, some of the college staff, be ready to ask them: how many graduates can you confirm have received jobs in this field?!?

If they stumble, and stammer, that is the moment to thank them for their time, and walk out the door.

FBI RELEASES 'STUDY' OF LAW ENFORCEMENT'S PERSECUTION COMPLEX

In what may be an attempt to bolster now ex-FBI director James Comey's oft-derided "Ferguson Effect" claims, the FBI has released a "study" that gathers facts feelings from law enforcement officers around the US and attempts to build a narrative somewhere between "life is unfair" and "there's a War on Cops." It's not a study. It's an opinion poll with the word "study" appended to it.

In short, the Ferguson Effect theory is this: cops are afraid to do their jobs because they're undergoing intense scrutiny in the wake of controversial shootings. It's bullshit, but there are plenty of law enforcement officials willing to stake their reputations on assertions that portray their officers as cowards. Faced with heightened public scrutiny, officers are apparently deciding to do less work than before, supposedly to head off any misrepresentation of their tactics.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

We have a member of HPD as a neighbor, and they are one of the most nice, personable people you could imagine. They take their job very seriously, and wouldn't harm anyone unless they absolutely had to.

But the extreme militarisation of America's police force, both in terms of military equipment, and Israeli IDF training, has created an emotional "safe space" for the expression of extreme brutality to the point of murder, and stories demonstrating this vicious change in how policing is done are legion.

IF police want there to be less anger at how they are doing their jobs, they need to change the way they are doing their jobs, so that there are no more atrocities, such as the one the world witnessed in Ferguson.

JEFF SESSIONS WANTS TO BRING BACK LONG MANDATORY PRISON SENTENCES FOR MINOR DRUG OFFENSES

Attorney General Jeff Sessions is reviewing policy changes set in place by the Obama administration that eliminated harsh punishments for low-level drug crimes and could direct federal prosecutors to again charge drug offenders with crimes carrying the most severe penalties, according to U.S. officials.

The change, if adopted, would overturn a memo by then-Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. that instructed prosecutors to avoid charging low-level defendants with drug offenses that would trigger severe mandatory minimum sentences. Only defendants who met certain criteria, such as not belonging to a large-scale drug trafficking organization, a gang or a cartel, qualified for the lesser charges under Holder’s instructions.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Attorney General Sessions, a word, please: What follows is for the users, not the dealers; drug addiction is a disease, and should not be criminalised, any more than having cancer should not be criminalised.

Have you not heard of Portugal's success in dealing with addiction?!? What they did was to decriminalise small amounts of drugs for personal use, but urged counseling of those addicted, and the results were amazingly positive.
Portugal’s Example: What Happened After It Decriminalized All Drugs, From Weed to Heroin

Would it not make sense to learn from other countries' successes in this area?!?

But if you do not, I want to ask a question; how much of your personal portfolio, please, is invested in private prisons?!?Private prisons back Trump and could see big payoffs with new policies

Because, sir, this is the ONLY reason I can possibly conceive for your having become "stuck on stupid",championing a policy which we know fails both the individual addict and society in general, and does not make the American public more safe.

HILLARY THE SPY?

Easy means of delivering secrets using the weak private email server. Easy means of accepting payment through a "charitable" foundation!

This is a perfect setup to repeat the 1996 selling of secrets for cash. In other words, a perfect espionage operation, running out the US State Department, with the weak email server providing the secrets and a charitable foundation to accept and launder the payments! Hillary doesn't have to physically steal the files, the way Jonathan Pollard did. Hillary doesn't have to scratch an X on a mailbox, the way Aldrich Ames did. Hillary doesn't have to tape bundles of stolen documents underneath a park bridge, like Robert Hannsen did!

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Hillary had two shields protecting her from a full investigation as to what was going on with the private email server, Loretta Lynch and James Comey. Both are no longer able to protect her, and it is time to find out if in fact this nation had a serving Secretary of State who committed espionage using the weak email server to deliver secret documents to foreign interests and the "charitable" Foundation to collect and launder the payments! In addition, the Clinton Foundation was suspected of actually being both a slush fund and money laundry in which many top politicians in both parties participated!

Let justice be done though the heavens may fall!

EMERGENCY CREWS BEGIN WORK ON COLLAPSED NUCLEAR FACILITY TUNNEL - LATEST UPDATE

During a routine surveillance of the area this morning, a 20-foot-wide hole in the roof of one of the tunnels was observed, leading to the precautionary sheltering of employees and notifications to area counties and states. After no contamination was detected, the shelter in place order was lifted and employees were sent home from work early as a precaution. Workers continue to monitor the area for contamination as a crew prepares to fill the hole with clean soil.

The approximately 360-foot-long tunnel where the partial collapse occurred contains 8 rail cars loaded with contaminated equipment. That tunnel feeds into a longer tunnel that extends hundreds more feet and contains 28 rail cars loaded with contaminated equipment. The hole opened up in the shorter tunnel near where it joins the longer tunnel. The tunnels were sealed in the mid-1990s and are checked periodically.

And now one of them has collapsed...

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Our American infrastructure continues to collapse around us; and with a nuclear site collapse, this is about as serious as is a heart attack.

Yet, the US government is perfectly comfortable giving 38 billion dollars to Israel over 10 years, US gives Israel 38 billion dollar in military aids over 10 years but this could not have been fixed in time to prevent the collapse?!?

Where the hell are the US government's priorities here?!? Trust me, they are not about We the People.

And despite all the reassurances that this has been sorted, and handled, I have to wonder how long it will be before the workers at this site, and/or their children, will come down with radiation-induced illnesses.

'Report on alleged Russian hacking is embarrassment to US intelligence profession' - fmr CIA officer

Ray McGovern: There is very little evidence of this. Let me start by saying, I was five years old on Victory Day in 1945 and congratulations all around. I was twice that when Senator [Joseph] McCarthy held those hearings. And I remember vivid disputes in my living room between those who thought Senator McCarthy was on to the Red Menace, and those of a more persuasive character who said this was a fallacy, that it was a witch hunt.

Watching that hearing today was an embarrassment to me. It was sort of a reflection of what is called the 'Deep State' in our country. We had the CIA, the NSA, the FBI all sort of working behind the scenes, manipulating these senators, whose spokesperson, leading Senator in the Senate, Senator Chuck Schumer, said on air two months ago: “You know, Trump is very foolish to cross, or to go after the CIA." Rachel Maddow asked: “What do you mean?”“Well,” Schumer responded, “the CIA has six ways to Sunday to get back at you."

SCHOOL BANS UNVACCINATED KIDS AFTER IMMUNIZED CHILDREN START CHICKENPOX OUTBREAK

Close to one-quarter of students at a California elementary school have been directed by school officials to stay home for three weeks due to a small onset of chickenpox cases that began in March.

The chickenpox outbreak at Mariposa School of Global Education in Augora Hills, California is unique because the first case of chickenpox discovered at the school was found in a student who had been fully vaccinated.

Daniel Stepenosky, the superintendent of Las Virgenes Unified School District that includes the Mariposa School, acknowledged to CBS Los Angeles that three students were found to have chickenpox. “A kindergartner, a first-grader, a third-grader. The first case happened around mid-March. The student was immunized, however still contracted chickenpox.”

According to local newspaper The Acorn, Stepenosky noted that “(It’s) interesting . . . the first of three cases was a student that was fully immunized. . . . He was the vaccinated one.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And I would almost bet real money that the one question which will NOT be asked here is, did the unvaccinated kids have chickenpox (which the article does not state) or did the chicken pox vaccine act in such a way that the vaccinated kids wound up with chicken pox anyway?!?

That is the "avoid the question at all costs" question which should have been asked here, and wasn't.

ISRAELI PARLIAMENT MOVES TO CEMENT ISRAEL’S STATUS AS AN ETHNOSTATE

Israel’s parliament gave preliminary approval Wednesday to a bill defining the country as the “national home of the Jewish people” which downgrades Arabic from official language status.

The bill, supported by 48 against 41 of the Knesset’s 120 members, seeks to “defend (Israel’s) status as a Jewish and democratic state”, said Avi Dichter, the bill’s sponsor, of the ruling Likud party.

On Sunday, ministers gave the bill the initial green light.

It needs to be debated by a parliamentary committee and voted on three more times in the plenum before it becomes part of the country’s so-called “basic laws”, which are similar to a constitution.

It would give special status to the “Jewish and democratic” nature of Israel, to the Jewish calendar and to Hebrew as Israel’s official language.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This legislation, if passed, will give more legitimacy toward an Israeli "Final Solution" against its Palestinian population, and this will be accomplished with an absolute vengeance which will make the civilized world shudder.

Controlled Opposition In The Truth Movement

When truth is subverted, new information cannot be accepted or believed even if evidence to the contrary is presented, that is, until the system crashes. As experienced by many under the Marxist/Leninist regime, those who do not fall in line, those who revolt against the message, the “dissidents” who promote equality, are squashed.Despite living in the Age of Information, humanity has reached a state of powerlessness, unable to defend itself, the family, the community, or the country. The appearance of freedom is illusion where both sides of a debate are controlled at the top. Any natural disaster or act of terrorism becomes an opportunity for opportunists to remove more freedoms. The Establishment sets up the fall by framing the debate as “pro vs. anti.” This manipulation has played out over the past thirty years in American Vaccine policy as a psychological operation or Psy Ops.

The Deep State As Liberal Conscience

The Sally Yates hearings were unwatchable Kabuki theater, for after all, Michael Flynn did nothing wrong. But it’s a Watergate simulation that might turn into the next Watergate, so we best pay attention.

There was one exchange, however, between Yates and Sen. Ted Cruz, that was fascinating meta-politically.

In January, then-Acting Attorney General Yates refused to enforce Trump’s travel bans. Trump promptly fired her. (This was back when Trump was still cool.)

Cruz returned to that episode, mansplaining to Yates that, first, foreigners have no Constitutional rights and, second, the President has absolute discretion in national-security matters. Yates’s rejoinder was to cite some other provision about non-discrimination, yadayadayada. .

North Korea claims plot reveals US state-sponsored terrorism

After arresting two American university instructors and laying out what it says was an elaborate, CIA-backed plot to assassinate Kim Jong Un, North Korea is claiming to be the victim of state-sponsored terrorism — from the White House.

The assertion comes as the U.S. is considering putting the North back on its list of terror sponsors. But the vitriolic outrage over the alleged plan to assassinate Kim last month is also being doled out with an unusually big dollop of retaliation threats, raising a familiar question: What on earth is going on in Pyongyang?

Young Mom Dies in Jail Cell as Video Shows Officers Laugh & Gawk at Her — Lawsuit

At 4:43 a.m., according to the lawsuit, surveillance camera footage shows one of the guards looks in on her and “starts laughing and jumps back at what he sees.”

The cop was laughing at the fact that Nunnally had urinated on herself. He then called in the other officers to gawk at the young mother — as she died. Despite seeing that she’d urinated on herself, the officers did nothing.

When the ambulance was finally called — after the officers fulfilled their sadistic desire for horrific entertainment — it was too late.

Nunnally’s death was entirely preventable. However, because police chose to gawk and laugh at her as she died, instead of render aid, her children will now grow up without their mom.

The lawsuit will now seek to hold those officers responsible.

Still No Evidence of Collusion Between Russia and Trump Administration

Over 100 days into Donald Trump’s presidency, there still remains no evidence of collusion between his administration and Russian agents, despite mainstream media reports to the contrary.
During a congressional hearing into alleged collusion between Donald Trump’s presidential campaign and Russia, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper confirmed that he still had no evidence to support the claims.

Last month, Clapper told NBC that the agency’s investigations had yielded no such evidence. When asked by Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) whether this is still the case, Clapper said, “It is.”

Meanwhile, former Acting Attorney General Sally Yates revealed she had expressed concerns over Donald Trump’s decision to appoint Mike Flynn as his National Security Advisor, but she failed to offer any evidence of collusion with between the two parties.

Trump Approves Plan To Directly Arm Kurds; Turkish Lira Tumbles

Update: Reuters confirms that the US arming of yet another ethnic group in the middle east is now a "go"

WHITE HOUSE APPROVES SUPPLYING WEAPONS TO YPG FIGHTERS IN SYRIA - U.S. OFFICIAL TELL REUTERS
WEAPONS TO HELP YPG FIGHTERS IN RAQQA OFFENSIVE, NO TIMELINE DISCLOSED FOR START OF SUPPLYING ARMS

Turkey's 'sultan for life' Erdogan will not be happy. NBC News is reporting that two US defense officials have confirmed President Trump has approved a plan to arm the Syrian Kurdish militia - an important U.S. ally in Syria in the fight against ISIS.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

President Trump, a word, please; re-drawing the maps in the Middle East to your liking may well have consequences you and your team may not have considered, and may well not be of your liking.

Your pretext here is having the Kurds fighting ISIS/ISIL, but it is a completely false premise.

ISIL/ISIS was a deliberate creation by the US government to prevent the Syrian government from continuing, and supposedly create regime change in Damascus.

Michael Flynn: The Rise of the “Islamic State” (ISIL) Was “A Willful Decision” of the Obama White House: Former DIA Chief

The creating of an Independent Kurdistan, to be cobbled together from territory currently claimed, respectively, by Turkey and Syria, will cost a great deal, in blood and money, and neither country is willing to give the territory up for the creation of such a country.

Al-Assad will either have to be assassinated, or regime changed by a vote; and Turkey's Erdogan may well pull Turkey out of NATO, which would put the alliance at great strategic discomfort.

And lastly, Mr. President, Russia's Putin will not stand idly by when the US and Kurdish forces attempt to carve up sovereign Syrian territory; this arming of the Syrian Kurdish militia in Syria will be seen as a definite attempt at Syrian destabilisation, and tantamount to an act of war it.

Authenticity of ISIS video showing execution of ‘Russian agent’ denied by MoD

The terrorist group released the 12-minute-long video through its media outlet, Furat Media, on Tuesday May 9, which is celebrated in Russia as the day of victory over Nazi Germany. According to the SITE Intelligence Group, which monitors online jihadi activity, it shows a man dressed in a black jumpsuit kneeling in a desert while urging other Russian agents to surrender before being beheaded by a bearded man in combat fatigues. The video also shows footage of what it claims to be the aftermath of Russian bombing raids.

The authenticity of the video has not been verified, and the Russian Ministry of Defense has denied reports that one of its servicemen has been killed.

US Says We Fly Where We Want in Syria

Washington, Pentagon. The US has responded to Russia’s creation of “no fly zones” in Syria by indicating the US will fly “wherever it wants” and “whenever it pleases” according to Pentagon spokespersons.

The Coalition forces headed by the US will strike at the Islamic State anywhere in Syria, including in the security zones established by Russia, Turkey and Iran, In Russian news agency reports citing a Pentagon representative.

Earlier, Russia, Turkey and Iran signed a memorandum on the establishment of security zones in Syria. According to the memorandum, check points and observation centers will be established along the borders of these security zones. The zones exclude aircraft from hostile action.

When answering the question whether the Coalition will stop the flights over these security zones, the Pentagon official said that the Coalition will carry on with its operations as usual, with no regard for Russia’s plans to end air strikes in the region.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Well, it sure as heck didn't take that long for Sec Def Mattis to come to his conclusions about flying through these security zones; which means that pilots flying through these regions risk getting shot down by Russian and Syrian ground forces or aircraft.

I am profoundly uncomfortable with the Pentagon making potential sacrificial lambs out of these pilots.

Is the US Preparing A Ground Invasion of Syria? Drones Spot Hundreds of US, Jordanian Armored Vehicles at Border

The US and Jordanian militaries may be prepping a massive invasion of Syria, intelligence reports gathered from surveillance drones suggest.

Jordan, US launch Eager Lion military exercise: some 7,400 troops from 20 nations taking part in Eager Lion military drills, 'the largest and most complex to date'.

Family of Palestinian toddler burned alive sue Israel

- Relatives of a Palestinian family burned alive filed a lawsuit against Israel on Monday demanding it be held responsible and pay damages over the 2015 attack blamed on Jewish extremists in the occupied West Bank.

Eighteen-month-old Ali Dawabsha died along with his parents when their house was firebombed in July 2015.

His brother Ahmed, now six, was the sole survivor from the immediate family but was left with severe burns.

"Today we filed a complaint with the Nazareth district court demanding the state of Israel be held responsible for the burning of the Dawabsha family in the village of Duma in the West Bank," lawyer Hassan al-Khatib, who represents the family, told AFP by phone.

Ahmed's uncle Nasser Dawabsha said they were seeking an admission of responsibility from the state and 16 million shekels (four million euros, $4.4 million) in damages.

Israel has occupied the West Bank for 50 years and Khatib said the state must accept responsibility for the killings.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

You have to understand, from the Israeli settler's perspective; the assassination and annihilation of Palestinians, and by any means necessary, is a completely normal part of life, just like going out and buying groceries for your family.

And their "Final Solution" to the "Palestinian problem" is what makes this group so utterly terrifying to anyone with any true sense of morality.

US Says ‘Yes’ to Nuke Tests, ‘No’ to a Nuke Ban Treaty

Twice in seven days the United States shot nuclear-capable long-range missiles toward the Marshall Islands, but the same government refused in March to join negotiations for a new treaty banning nuclear weapons.

In late March, US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley explained why the US would boycott the "treaty ban" negotiations that began March 27 at the UN in New York City. Haley said about nuclear weapons, "[W]e can’t honestly say that we can protect our people by allowing the bad actors to have them, and those of us that are good, trying to keep peace and safety not to have them." North Korean president Kim Jong-un could have said the same thing about his seven nuclear warheads, especially in view of US bombs and missiles currently falling on seven countries – Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia, and Libya – and engagement in massive war games off the Korean peninsula.

Trump's Advisers Reportedly Propose Plan to Change US Strategy in Afghanistan

Advisers to US President Donald Trump have worked out and proposed a new plan that could significantly change the situation in Afghanistan expanding the military activities against militants, local media reported.

The Washington Post reported Monday that a group of Trump's military and foreign policy advisers had proposed a strategy aiming to push the Taliban terrorist movement, outlawed in Russia, to the negotiating table with the Afghan government.

According to the news outlet, the plan implies strengthening of the Pentagon's role in anti-Taliban struggle as it could be allowed to make decisions on the issues related to the number of troops in the country, as well as their presence at the battlefield and to attack the terrorists not only with the use of drones.

The program could result in reverse of the steps of ex-US President Barack Obama reducing the country's presence in Afghanistan along with the costs of the operation, the newspaper added.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Negotiations between the Taliban and Afghani government?!?

A breath of logic in this accursed, and never-ending war?!?

Well, colour me stunned, if it actually happens!!

Syria rejects international forces in safe zones

Syria on Monday dismissed the idea of foreign forces patrolling four so-called de-escalation zones that are to be established under a deal struck by Russia, Iran and Turkey, suggesting Damascus would agree only to Russian "military police" who are already on the ground.

Syria planned to abide by the agreement signed in Kazakhstan last week, Foreign Minister Walid al-Moallem told reporters in the Syrian capital, but he cautioned it was "premature" to say whether the deal would succeed.

"There will be no presence by any international forces supervised by the United Nations," al-Moallem said. "The Russian guarantor has clarified that there will be military police and observation centers."

Though he did not specify who the military police would be, he appeared to be referring to Russian observers already in Syria.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation: it appears that the US government and the rebels it has been arming and training, will completely ignore the de-escalation zones.

CBS:Vaccine Injured Veterans Denied Benefits

We just wrote a story about service men who were forced to get an anthrax vaccine (some refused and were court-martialed) because they were worried about the side effects. Well, servicemen and women are still being forced to take vaccines and live with the side effects, only now, they are also being denied benefits if the vaccines cause permanent damage. Please watch the video below and forward it to everyone you know.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This absolutely bites, and is an officially horrible stance by the US government and its military.

This smallpox vaccine has a known side effect of periocarditis, or myocarditis, and this has been documented by the CDC itself:

Cardiac Adverse Events Following Smallpox Vaccination --- United States, 2003

This has been known since 2003, for heaven's sake; so why has the US military continually have given been giving this vaccine to our men and women in uniform since that time, when the known dangers were very clear at that point?!?

The short, and rather cynical, but true answer, is to make its manufacturer, Sanofi Pasteur Biologics Company, richer.

And the other, interesting factor to consider?!?

This vaccine uses a live virus, and I have to wonder if this is the link to episodes of myocarditis and periocarditis in those vaccinated.

As reported at the FDA site about this vaccine:

How does ACAM2000 work? The vaccine is made from a virus called vaccinia, which is a "pox"-type virus related to smallpox but causes milder disease. ACAM2000 cannot cause smallpox; it does not contain the smallpox virus, but rather the "live" vaccinia virus - not dead virus like many other vaccines. For this reason, attentively caring for the vaccination site is important to prevent the virus from spreading from the vaccination site to other parts of the body, or to other people. ACAM2000 is administered differently than the typical "shot" associated with most vaccinations. A two-pronged stainless steel (or bifurcated) needle is dipped into the vaccine solution and the skin is pricked several times in the upper arm with a droplet of the vaccine. The virus begins growing at the injection site causing a localized infection or "pock" to form. A red, itchy sore spot at the site of the vaccination within 3-4 days is an indicator that the vaccination was successful; that is, there is "a take." A blister develops at the vaccination site and then dries up forming a scab that falls off in the third week, leaving a small scar.

Dianne Feinstein & Joe Manchin admit: No evidence of Trump/Russia collusion

Democrats are desperate to show something - anything - that proves a link between the 2016 Trump campaign and the Russians. Every single left-wing media outlet has been focused on it while Dem-friendly surrogates, donors, and PACs have been searching for it. Democrat politicians, many with access to highly classified material, have made the accusations but still, to this day, there is simply no proof it ever happened.

That doesn’t stop them from getting in front of a camera and yakking about it, though. “Russian hackers” somehow “interfered” with Hillary’s rightful ascension, and that cannot be tolerated.

Enter Dianne Feinstein. Last week, she was on Wolf Blitzer’s show. There, she was asked directly if she had any proof to support the left-wing conspiracy theories.

...She does not.

FBI’s Comey Debunks Huma Abedin’s Excuse for Clinton Emails Appearing on Anthony Weiner’s Laptop

COMEY: His then spouse, Huma Abedin, appears to have had a regular practice of forwarding e-mails to him, for him I think to print out for her so she could then deliver them to the Secretary of State.

Those details seem to contradict claims made by Abedin last November through her lawyer, Karen Dunn, immediately following reports that the FBI discovered possible Clinton emails on her estranged husband’s computer. Dunn claimed that Abedin did not know how the emails could have reached Weiner’s device and only learned about the possibility of emails being on Weiner’s laptop via media reports.

'NO EVIDENCE RUSSIA INFLUENCING VOTER TALLIES IN...50 STATES' ? US EX-INTEL CHIEF

"Can we agree that the Russians attempted to influence the outcome of the election?” asked Senator John Neely Kennedy (R-Louisiana) during the Subcommittee on Crime and Terrorism hearing on Monday.

Yes," Clapper and Yates replied.

"Did they succeed?" asked Kennedy.

“We could not make that call,” replied Clapper.

"The only thing we said was we saw no evidence of influencing voter tallies in any of the 50 states, but we were not in a position to judge whether ? what actual outcome on the election," added Clapper.

Kennedy then asked "Have you ever leaked?"

“Not wittingly or knowingly,” replied Clapper.

"Classified or unclassified?," said Kennedy.

“Unclassified is not leaking," remarked Clapper as laughter erupted in the room.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, at the end of the day, presenting sound and fury, signifying nothing, Clapper's proof that the Russians attempted to influence the outcome of the 2016 election is....zip, nada, nothing!!

This was simply a witchhunt, with Russia as the victim, in order to allow more demonisation against it.

And BTW, it is Clapper who needs to be educated on evidence and documentation of said evidence, which he absolutely did not have!!

SYRIA: THE NEW GOVERNMENT PLANS FOR MOVING EAST

The de-escalation agreement for four fighting zones in Syria has come into effect. The battles between Syrian government forces (red) and the foreign supported "rebels" (yellow) has ebbed in the north, in Idleb and north Hama, in the south round Deraa, around the besieged "rebel" enclaves north of Homs and east of Damascus in east-Ghouta. That does not mean that those areas are peaceful or safe. In the north Turkey is scrimishing with U.S. supported Kurds (purple), in Deraa governate ISIS is infighting with other Jihadi "rebels" and in east-Ghouta various "rebel" groups are trying to eliminate each other.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF this can hold, it ultimately means victory for the Syria government, which is not the outcome those in the bowels of power in the Unhinged States of America want to see happen.

However, that being said, I wouldn't bet against an ultimately large contingent of American-backed rebels sticking a monkey wrench in the works on this soon.

TENSIONS RISE AS US ANNOUNCES MILITARY DRILLS NEAR EMBATTLED VENEZUELA

The involvement of the U.S. military in an upcoming multilateral military drill in South America has raised concerns over potential ulterior motives on the part of the U.S. The drill, dubbed “Operation: America United,” will involve the installation of a temporary military base on the triple border shared by the drill’s other participating nations: Peru, Brazil and Colombia.

According to Theofilo de Oliveira, the top general of the Brazilian Armed Forces, the U.S. military will carry out the drill along with the three Latin American nations this November over a period of ten days. The Brazilian military has asserted that the objective of the exercise is to “ develop greater knowledge, share experiences and develop mutual trust.” Brazilian government officials have strongly denied rumors that the exercise will lead to the establishment of a multinational military base in the Amazon.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Interesting timing of this drill!!

POLICE CLAIM THE PUBLIC CAN'T USE "WORDS IN THE ENGLISH DICTIONARY" TO FIND OUT ABOUT FACIAL RECOGNITION

According to an article in Muckrock, the Hennepin County Sheriff's Office (HCSO) doesn't want the public to know about their 'secret' facial recognition cameras.

Police in Minneapolis are going to great lengths, to keep the public from discovering how they're being spied on.

Last weekend, Tony Webster was notified that the HCSO was asking the Supreme Court to postpone the release of their facial recognition documents.

“I sent the [FOI] request to a bunch of different agencies in the Twin Cities metro area and the state police, and for the most part none of them had any problem complying with the request in a proper manner. They provided the documents and emails and it was really no big deal,” he says. All except for the HCSO, in the county which seats Minneapolis and thus the most populous in the state.

The Star Tribune revealed that the HCSO has been secretly using facial recognition cameras since 2013.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have a brilliant notion of how to prevent any kind of terrorism against the US and US assets overseas, and that is for the US government to stop mucking about in other people's countries to expropriate resources to which it has no moral right; making sure those countries are western-centric, even if that means regime change, then insuring those assets are only sold in US dollars.

You're welcome! :-)

And for next year's Super Bowl, just don't go. But explain, very publicly, why you will not only not be going, but that you won't watch it on TV, which means that the advertisers will have spent their millions ... for absolutely nothing.

I really dislike how the Federal and State governments have gone all "Code Napoleon" (one is always considered guilty until proven innocent) on the rest of us in this country.

Dem Senator Wants Huma Abedin Investigated by Special Prosecutor

There have been plenty of calls to investigate Hillary Clinton’s top aide, Huma Abedin, for her role in Hillary’s email scandal. None of those calls, for reasons that ought to be obvious, have come from people within the Democrat Party.

That just changed, however — and it could have massive implications for both Abedin and her employer.

In an interview on MSNBC on Thursday, Connecticut Democrat Sen. Richard Blumenthal said a special prosecutor should be appointed to investigate Abedin’s handling of confidential material. Blumenthal’s comments came one day after FBI Director James Comey revealed during congressional testimony that Abedin may have illegally forwarded emails off of Clinton’s server to her husband, former Congressman Anthony Weiner.

War And Empire: The American Way Of Life

In the aftermath of Saddam Hussein’s 1991 attempt to annex Kuwait the U.S. deliberately destroyed much of Iraq’s water and sewer infrastructure.

The Pentagon even admitted on its website that these acts would lead to mass outbreaks of disease. These were certifiable war crimes under international law. After Saddam’s defeat the U.S. also imposed widespread sanctions on his regime that included preventing necessary medicines from reaching Iraq. Hundreds of thousands of Iraqi citizens perished as a result. In an infamous interview in 1996 Madeleine Albright, then the Secretary of State, was asked to justify the deaths of 500,000 children. She defended these atrocities by saying “I think this is a very hard choice but we think the price is worth it.” Twenty-one years have elapsed since Albright uttered her rationalization of this vicious barbarity and it has been virtually “disappeared” from the collective memory of Americans. But it is far from being the only one.

Iran minister warns Saudi Arabia after 'battle' comments: Tasnim

Iran will hit back at most of Saudi Arabia with the exception of Islam's holiest places if the kingdom does anything "ignorant", Tehran's defense minister was quoted as saying on Sunday after a Saudi prince threatened to move the "battle" to Iran.

"If the Saudis do anything ignorant, we will leave no area untouched except Mecca and Medina," Iranian Defence Minister Hossein Dehghan was quoted by the semi-official Tasnim news agency as saying.

"They think they can do something because they have an air force," he added in an apparent reference to Yemen, where Saudi warplanes regularly attack Iran-aligned Houthi forces in control of the capital Sanaa.

Dehghan, speaking to Arabic-language Al-Manar TV, was commenting on remarks by Saudi Deputy Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, who said on Tuesday any contest for influence between the Sunni Muslim kingdom and the revolutionary Shi'ite theocracy ought to take place "inside Iran, not in Saudi Arabia".

Webmaster's Commentary: 

To the current Iranian government; a word, please.

With President Trump's current "bromance" with the House of Saud, in terms of allowing US weapons to be sold to the Saudi Military, at massive profits for American weapons manufacturers, were I Iranian Defence Minister Hossein Dehghan, I would, perhaps, speak a little more cautiously.

The Deep American State elements of the Unhinged States of America, would love nothing better than to find a justification for a military attack against Iran; attacking Saudi Arabia would give them just such an excuse.

Option B: This is some sort of dry run for an upcoming EU/US/Saudi sponsored false flag strike against Assad.

Liberal son of war refugees projected to win S. Korea vote

A former anti-government student leader, Moon Jae-in stands poised to succeed ousted leader Park Geun-hye, the daughter of the slain South Korean dictator who jailed him in the 1970s.

Moon, the current front-runner in Tuesday's election, has led a life that seems custom-made for a starring role in South Korean opposition politics.

The son of North Korean refugees, he waited in line as a boy in war-ravaged Busan for free U.S. corn flour and milk powder. Imprisoned as a university student for trying to topple South Korea's military rulers, the dictatorship later forced Moon into South Korea's elite special forces. He became a human rights lawyer and then rose to what the media called "King Secretary" to the last liberal leader of the country, with whom he worked to reconcile with North Korea. He later defended that mentor from corruption charges.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If, in fact, this man gets elected tomorrow, look for either a massive false flag to happen, to be blamed on North Korea, or an assassination attempt against him, because his policies are not to the liking of the American Deep State and the people in the bowels of power in the Unhinged States of America.

The CIA has a long history of helping to kill leaders around the world

The attempt, according to the ministry, involved “the use of biochemical substances including radioactive substance and nano poisonous substance” and the advantage of this was it “does not require access to the target (as) their lethal results will appear after six or 12 months”.

The person directly responsible was allegedly a North Korean working for the foreign intelligence agencies.

A CIA spokesman refused to comment on the allegations.

But although such a claim cannot be dismissed as totally outlandish – given the long list of US involvement in coups and assassinations worldwide – the agency was forced to cut back on such killings after a US Senate investigation in the 1970s exposed the scale of its operations.

Following the investigation, then president Gerald Ford signed in 1976 an executive order stating: “No employee of the United States government shall engage in, or conspire in, political assassination.”

Russian outlet Sputnik falls out of D.C. media orbit with denied bid for Capitol Hill credentials

Sputnik, a news service owned and operated by the Russian government, has lost its bid to be permanently credentialed on Capitol Hill over its direct ties to Moscow.
The Congressional Periodical Press Gallery has denied Sputnik’s request for a permanent media pass, Politico reported Friday, dashing for now the outlet’s odds of closer access to Washington’s movers and shakers.
Composed of a rotating group of accredited journalists, the Periodical Press Gallery assists bona fide print and digital correspondents with press-related questions and issues concerning the House and Senate, according to its website. Additionally, gallery membership also lends to approved outlets receiving greater access on Capitol Hill while also typically opening doors to other centers of power in Washington, like the White House and Supreme Court, Politico reported.

OKLAHOMA GOVERNOR SIGNS ANTI-PROTEST LAW IMPOSING HUGE FINES ON “CONSPIRATOR” ORGANIZATIONS

A STATUTE AIMED at suppressing protests against oil and gas pipelines has been signed into law in Oklahoma, as a related bill advances through the state legislature. The two bills are part of a nationwide trend in anti-protest laws meant to significantly increase legal penalties for civil disobedience. The Oklahoma law signed this week is unique, however, in its broad targeting of groups “conspiring” with protesters accused of trespassing. It takes aim at environmental organizations Republicans have blamed for anti-pipeline protests that have become costly for local governments.

The statute Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin approved Wednesday was rushed into immediate effect under a provision that declared the situation “an emergency.” It will dramatically increase penalties against protesters who trespass on property containing a “critical infrastructure facility.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This law should die an ignominious death, if in fact it is ultimately tested at the Supreme Court Level; however, given the state of American jurisprudence at this moment in this country's history, one has to doubt that arguments against it might even get heard.

These Nuclear Breakthroughs Are Endangering the World

At a time of growing tensions between nuclear powers – Russia and NATO in Europe, and the US, North Korea, and China in Asia – Washington has quietly upgraded its nuclear weapons arsenal to create, according to three leading American scientists, “exactly what one would expect to see, if a nuclear-armed state were planning to have the capacity to fight and win a nuclear war by disarming enemies with a surprise first strike.”

Writing in the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists, Hans Kristensen, director of the Nuclear Information Project of the Federation of American Scientists, Matthew McKinzie of the National Resources Defense Council, and physicist and ballistic missile expert Theodore Postol conclude that “Under the veil of an otherwise-legitimate warhead life-extension program,” the US military has vastly expanded the “killing power” of its warheads such that it can “now destroy all of Russia’s ICBM silos.”

At Least 50 Afghan Soldiers Killed as Pakistan Overruns Border Checkpoints

The situation at the Afghanistan-Pakistan border is always tense, particularly after Friday’s exchange of fire between the two sides, but appears to be rapidly spiraling out of control, as Pakistani forces have attacked and destroyed several checkpoints along the Chaman border, which connects Balochistan to Kandahar.

At least 50 Afghan soldiers are reported dead, and over 100 wounded, as Pakistan reports they’ve destroyed five separate checkpoints in “retaliation” for Afghan fire. There was no news of new Pakistan casualties since Friday’s exchange of fire.

Locals say that the border crossing was closed earlier in the day by Pakistani security officials, and has remained so, with loudspeakers ordering all villages on the Pakistani side of the border evacuated until further notice. Helicopter gunships are reported overhead, and over 2,000 families have been displaced.

This may get ugly, and very quickly.

REPEAT: Al-Jazeera Said To Film False Flag Chemical Attack Against Syrian Civilians

One month after Trump flip-flopped on his Syrian position, launching cruise missile strikes on a Syrian airfield as "after dinner entertainment" during Trump's meeting with the Chinese president, just days after declaring he would allow the Syrian people to decide the fate of Assad when another "chemical attack" video emerged at the end of March, a false flag chemical attack against civilians in Syria was reportedly filmed recently by al-Jazeera stringers in Syria.

Around 30 fire engines and ambulances, as well as 70 local residents with children transported from a refugee camp were used in the filming of the Al Jazeera clip across three locations in Idlib province, including Jisr Shughur.

Obama Shows Why Wall Street Has Two Parties And We Have None

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The truth be told, the American people have utterly no representation in government, whatsoever; just the major corporations which own politicians through political contributions, and that is just a fact of life Americans need to understand.

OBAMA DID A HIGHLY SUSPECT $400M + ARMS DEAL ON HIS FINAL DAY AS PRESIDENT, US LAWMAKER CALLS FOR PROBE INTO POSSIBLE $418M ARMS SALE TO KENYA

A North Carolina congressman is calling for a probe into a potential $418 million contract between Kenya and a major U.S. defense contractor announced on President Obama's last day in office -- a deal the lawmaker claims reeks of cronyism.

Republican Rep. Ted Budd wants the Government Accountability Office to investigate a deal between the African nation and New York-based L3 Technologies for the sale of 12 weaponized border patrol planes. He said he wants to know why a veteran-owned small company in North Carolina – which specializes in making such planes – was not considered as the manufacturer.

IOMAX USA Inc., based in Mooresville and founded by a U.S. Army veteran, offered to build Kenya the weaponized planes for roughly $281 million – far cheaper than what its competitor, L3, is selling them for.

"Something smells wrong here," Budd told Fox News. "The U.S. Air Force bypassed IOMAX, which has 50 of these planes already in service in the Middle East."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Pure coincidence", my ASTROLABE?!?

If there was ever a political animal in the White House who understood how to milk crony capitalism, it was President Barak Obama.

I am quite certain that President Obama received his (covertly done) reward from L3 when then deal was struck; after all, being President of the Unhinged States of America is generally all about the money and deals you can conjure up afterward.

WHAT'S KILLING THE MIDDLE CLASS?

The rising asymmetry of rewards within our economy has many drivers.

We all know the middle class that actually owns capital and wields political influence is shrinking. As I noted last week in Redefining the Middle Class: It Isn't What You Earn and Owe, It's What You Own That Generates Income, defining the middle class by household income alone is a misleading metric, as it leaves out the critical factors of debt and ownership of productive assets.

A household may have an income of $150,000 and appear well-off by that metric, but if they are mired in debt and own virtually no productive assets or wealth that can be passed on to future generations, they aren't middle class--they're well-paid proletariats.

So what's killing the middle class? If you read the dozens of articles on the decline of the middle class in the mainstream (corporate) media, you soon discover there's a short list of the usual suspects:

1. Globalization / outsourcing

Hillary Clinton Ties Herself To Macron’s Victory Over Le Pen, Attacks The Media

Hillary Clinton attempted to tie herself to French President-elect Emmanuel Macron’s runoff victory over far-right candidate Marine Le Pen on Sunday.

Clinton posted a tweet calling Macron’s election a victory for “the world” and a “defeat” to the hackers who released Macron’s emails to the public shortly before the election, but then turned the focus towards herself, claiming “the media says I can’t talk about that.” Clinton is known to have staffers carefully craft and edit her tweets before posting.

The tweet is the latest step in Clinton’s return to politics amid public speculation that she will run for president a third time in 2020.

While speaking at a televised women’s event last week, Clinton declared herself a member of the anti-Trump “resistance” and blamed FBI Director Jim Comey and Russian interference for her loss to Donald Trump.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And there you have it; Just as she is pathologically incapable of accepting responsibility for what happened at Benghazi, she is also pathologically incapable of understanding why she lost last year's election.

And she lost it because she is perceived (and rightly so) as thoroughly corrupt; carrying more baggage than does Kim Kardashian on a photo shoot; absolutely not having the temperament for the job; painfully incapable of connecting with the Democratic Party's base; and imbued with a snotty sense of inevitability of her ultimate political victory.

She may have been the American Deep State's "wet dream", in terms of her martial proclivities; but unfortunately, President Trump is proving himself thoroughly pliable to its agenda.

The wars continue, and increase; and what is left of the middle class is continuing to get snuffed out of existence, economically; and I hate to admit this, but I am seeing a very dystopian vision of the future of this country at this moment.

France Censors News Media And Internet Sites From Publishing Hacked And Leaked Macron Emails, Threatens Charges.

I cannot believe this, but it is happening. France has warned media not to publish hacked and leaked Macron emails. I knew there is a law in France in which the news media cannot publish anything about the election during the two days before the election.
