Leave It To The Left: A Mother’s Day Tribute That Is Pure Evil

The National Abortion Rights Action League – NARAL – posted an offensive message on their Facebook page to wish everyone a “Happy Mother’s Day.”

And abortion giant Planned Parenthood, who kills hundreds of thousands of babies each year, tweeted a sickening message on Mother’s Day in celebration of moms who are making the decision not to be mothers.

SCIENTISTS REVISE THEIR UNDERSTANDING OF NOVICHOK AFTER IT FAILS TO PRODUCE THE LETHAL EFFECTS THEY EXPECTED

SCIENTISTS REVISE THEIR UNDERSTANDING OF NOVICHOK AFTER IT FAILS TO PRODUCE THE LETHAL EFFECTS THEY EXPECTED
In the aftermath of the poisoning of Sergei and Yulia Skripal in Salisbury on 4th March, scientists are currently re-evaluating their understanding of A-234 — or Novichok as it is more commonly known. Prior to the poisoning, it had been thought that the substance was around 5-8 times more toxic than VX nerve agent, and therefore that just a tiny drop would be likely to kill a person within minutes or possibly even seconds of them coming into contact with it. In the unlikely event of a person surviving, it was believed that their central nervous system would be completely destroyed, and that they would suffer numerous chronic health issues, including cirrhosis, toxic hepatitis, and epilepsy before dying a premature and miserable death, probably within a year or so.

Essential history to understand the present: Obvious and Orwellian-illegal Wars of Aggression on Gaza by Israel

I will not invest my professional attention on current Israel crimes requiring .01% arrests of “leaders” responsible because ongoing military attacks on the world’s largest concentration camp are variations of the same psychopathic song of lies, suffering, and death.

VOLCANIC POLLUTION

Excuse the global warming crap!

Volcanic activity, is an example of a non-anthropogenic source of international pollutions. Volcanic eruptions release large quantities of greenhouse gases and other aerosols into the atmosphere, these gases form massive clouds which accumulate in the atmosphere; this process is referred to as outgassing or offgassing In addition to magma particulates, known as ash or pyroclastic flow, volcanic eruptions release water vapor(H20), carbon dioxide(CO2), sulphur dioxide(SO2), hydrogen sulfide(H2S), carbon monoxide(CO), hydrogen chloride(HCl), and hydrogen fluoride(HF) into the atmosphere.

He continually petitions other countriesto punish their own citizens for insulting him.

Moqtada al-Sadr's alliance wins Iraq's parliamentary elections

Iraq's electoral commission has announced the Sa'iroun (Marchers) political bloc, cleric Moqtada al-Sadr's alliance with communists, as the winner of the country's parliamentary elections.

Sadr's alliance, which contested in Iraq's elections for the first time, captured 54 parliamentary seats, the commission said on Saturday.

Sadr's movement forms the backbone of the Sa'iroun alliance, but the senior Shia cleric himself, who enjoys a strong support, did not contest the elections.

The Conquest Alliance, led by former transport minister and secretary general of Badr Organisation Hadi al-Ameri, came in second with 47 seats and the Victory Alliance, headed by incumbent Prime Minister Haider al- Abadi, took the third place with 42 seats.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is going to be one of the worst outcomes the US government could have possibly imagined, coming from these elections.

Al Sadr was the guy, if you remember the US's first withdrawal from Iraq, under the SOFA agreement, who threatened that if one American soldier stayed one second past the official time they were supposed to leave, that they were "fair game" for his "Mahdi Army", a Shiite Street militia which was highly effective, particularly in poorer Iraqi neighborhoods.

A pretty corruption-proof,anti-American, no-nonsense guy who wanted to see Iraq rise above the ashes of American war and occupation, Al-Sadr is not going to be very happy about whatever current US troops are in the country, and at first, will politely ask President Trump to remove them (I believe we still have several hundred left here).

If those troops do not get withdrawn quietly (something I am reasonably certain that both Sec Def Mattis nor CIA Director Pompeo do not want to see happen), this could get explosive, and relatively quickly.

Please remember that Al Sadr is still very much in touch with the major commanders of the Mahdi Army, and it wouldn't take much effort to "get the band back together", if you know what I mean.

Ex-UK spy Christopher Steele ordered to appear for video deposition in London

In a procedural ruling Friday before the High Court of Justice, Queen's Bench Division, former British spy Christopher Steele was ordered to appear for a videotaped deposition in London on June 18 for ongoing civil litigation brought against Buzzfeed by a Russian technology executive, Aleksej Gubarev.

A last-ditch effort by Buzzfeed's legal team was denied today in their efforts to expand and question Steele about "the dossier as a whole" instead of a more limited area of questioning in the ongoing civil litigation in the UK.

In the 15-page ruling obtained and reviewed by Fox News, Mr. Justice Jay wrote that the Buzzfeed appeal "should be dismissed on all grounds."

"It's Over" - Biggest 'Russiagate' Cheerleaders Start Covering Their Tracks

As months turn into nearly two years and no solid evidence emerges to nail Russia for nabbing Election 2016, some big Russiagate cheerleaders are starting to cover their tracks.

The best evidence that Russia-gate is sinking beneath the waves is the way those pushing the pseudo-scandal are now busily covering their tracks.

The Guardian complains that “as the inquiry has expanded and dominated the news agenda over the last year, the real issues of people’s lives are in danger of being drowned out by obsessive cable television coverage of the Russia investigation” – as if The Guardian’s own coverage hasn’t been every bit as obsessive as anything CNN has come up with.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Meuller HAS NO PUBLIC CONFIDENCE, PERIOD, END OF DISCUSSION.

This has become one of the most horrifically, and corruptedly, politicized moments in the history of the FBI, and President Trump should sack the lot of them.

IDF Snipers Ordered to Shoot Palestinian Children, Israeli General Confirms

Lets be clear as to implications.

When they ” shoot at children, they are doing so deliberately, under clear and specific orders.”

What this means is that the Netanyahu government ordered the killing of children. The guidelines adopted by the IDF were approved at the highest levels of the Israeli government.

We are dealing with crimes against humanity and the self-proclaimed “international community” applauds. Western leaders, not to mention the media, are complicit: the consensus is that “Israel has the right to defend itself” …. by killing children.

Through omission, the Western media does not mention the words “Gaza Massacre”. You won’t see it. The Palestinians are described as “terrorists”. The lie become the truth!

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When you mame and kill children, you mame and kill the future of that society of which those children were a part; this is one of the many-faceted elements of Israel's "Final Solution" to the "Palestinian Problem".

The new target of Israeli police: Palestinian flags

There have been increasing reports of a police crackdown on flying the Palestinian flag in public even though there is nothing illegal about displaying the flag.

During the dedication ceremony for the new American embassy in Jerusalem on Monday, about 200 left-wing and Israeli Arab demonstrators on a nearby street protested the transfer of the embassy. Other than a neighborhood resident who tried to spray them with water from her balcony, the demonstration, which was led by Arab Knesset members and members of the Higher Arab Monitoring Committee, was proceeding uneventfully. There were no confrontations with nearby right-wing counterdemonstrators or with the police who surrounded them and separated them from their ideological opponents.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In a somewhat ironic twist, with regard to justice for Palestinians, Israel's IDF has become the 21st century's equivalent to German Storm Troopers in World War II.

Putin Vows to Stand Up to US Govt’s Attempts to Block German Pipeline

EU nations, particularly Germany, were already interested in getting closer to Russia in their joint efforts to save the P5+1 nuclear deal with Iran. Another issue driving them together is the planned Nord Stream 2 pipeline, connecting Russian natural gas supplies to Germany.

Europe in general, and Germany in particular, need that Russian natural gas. The US opposes the pipeline, however, for deliberately circumventing Ukrainian territory. Russian President Vladimir Putin, visiting German Chancellor Angela Merkel, said that Russia will stand up to US attempts to block the project.

He’s not alone. German Economic Minister Peter Altmaier represented US opposition to the pipeline as “America first” policy attempting to secure US exports. He warned Europe would defend its own interests in the matter, even if they conflict with America’s.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What happens when all of Europe is using cryptocurrencies to circumvent US santions, in order to be able to access Russian and Iranian oil?!?

Because, were I a betting person, that is what I would bet this is where Europe will be going, and very, very soon.

US government's "thuggocracy" tactics will not work here, unless President Trump is willing to wage physical war on all countries refusing to honor US sanctions against Russia and Iran.

I would very politely like to suggest to him that perhaps, such a world war is not an answer to his personal frustrations at getting snubbed by Europe over Russian and Iranian sanctions,which have no logical reasons to exist in the first place.

Israel Won’t Cooperate With UN Probe on Gaza Killings

Israeli officials announced Friday that they will completely refuse all cooperation with the new UN probe into the Nakba Day killings of 61 Palestinian protesters at the Gaza border. The protesters were killed by Israeli troops.

UN Human Rights Council
A UN Security Council resolution failed to agree on the probe, when it was vetoed by the United States. The UN Human Rights Council, where no veto power exists, held a special session agreeing to send international investigators into the probe.

It was the deadliest single day in the Gaza Strip since the 2014 Israeli invasion. The incident lead to substantial international outcry. Israeli officials argued that the number of deaths were themselves of no consequence, likening it to killing Nazis.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Netanyahu now has a full-blown PR crisis of immesurable proportions.

So he is now characterizing reporters covering these protests, and little infants slaughtered in their monthers' arms, "Nazis" ?!?!?

Sorry, Mr. Prime Minister; you jumped the shark with this characterization, and will firmly impress upon the world, that the only way to deal with this genocide, is with a brisk embracing of BDS.

Economics is a language Israelis thoroughly understand, and if this the only peaceful, logical way in which to attempt to prevent further slaughter of the Palestinian people, so be it!!

IG Horowitz Finds FBI, DOJ Broke Law In Clinton Probe, Refers To Prosecutor For Criminal Charges

As we reported on Thursday, a long-awaited report by the Department of Justice's internal watchdog into the Hillary Clinton email investigation has moved into its final phase, as the DOJ notified multiple subjects mentioned in the document that they can privately review it by week's end, and will have a "few days" to craft any response to criticism contained within the report, according to the Wall Street Journal.

Those invited to review the report were told they would have to sign nondisclosure agreements in order to read it, people familiar with the matter said. They are expected to have a few days to craft a response to any criticism in the report, which will then be incorporated in the final version to be released in coming weeks. -WSJ

Iran And Russia Discuss Transacting In Crypto To Avoid International Sanctions

Iran and Russia could start using cryptocurrencies to avoid Western sanctions, Russian news portal RBC reported yesterday, May 17.

Mohammad Reza Pourebrahimi, the head of the Iranian Parliamentary Commission for Economic Affairs, referred to cryptocurrencies as a promising way for both countries to avoid US dollar transactions, as well as a possible replacement of the SWIFT interbank payment system.

At a meeting with Dmitry Mezentsev, the Chair of the Federation Council Committee on Economic Policy, Pourebrahimi said that they have “engaged the Central Bank of Iran to start developing proposals for the use of cryptocurrency.”

Pourebrahimi added that he discussed this topic in the State Duma's Committee on Economic Policy the day before and that Iran had established cooperation with Russia on this issue.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I almost have to laugh at the futility of President Trump's sanctions, now that Russia and Iran have found a way around them, as will other European, and Asian nations, dropping the US dollar and using cryptocurrency.

So how is President Trump going to respond to the world's not paying any attention to his sanctioning of Iran and withdrawing from the P5+1, declare war on the rest of the world?!?

FBI Spy-Op Exposed, Trump Campaign Infiltrated By Longtime CIA And MI6 Asset

Following two weeks of mounting speculation over the FBI's so-called "mole" inside the Trump campaign, the New York Times and Washington Post published separate accounts on Friday detailing the infiltration of the Trump campaign - a scheme revealed in a Wednesday report by the New York Times in which "at least one government informant met several times with Mr. Page and Mr. Papadopoulos." The Wednesday report also disclosed the existence of "Operation Crossfire Hurricane" - the FBI's code name for their early Trump-Russia investigation.

Thanks to Friday's carefully crafted deep-state disclosures by WaPo and the Times, along with actual reporting by the Daily Caller's Chuck Ross, we now know it wasn't a mole at all - but 73-year-old University of Cambridge professor Stefan Halper, a US citizen, political veteran and longtime US Intelligence asset enlisted by the FBI to befriend and spy on three members of the Trump campaign during the 2016 US election.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, now we know.

The degree to which the FBI has become politicized has become a disgrace to this country, and has made it a laughing stock around the world, reducing its acronyn to either the Federal Bureau of Intrigue, or the Federal Bureau of Incompetency.

Take your pick.

President Trump now has cause to fire every single agent, scrape out the department, and build it up again with people whose true vocation is to protect citizens of this country from harm.

CALIFORNIA OFFICIALS ARE SPYING ON THEIR CITIZENS WITH CHINESE DRONES

Residents of Sacramento, California, are furious about a secret government drone spying program they say is surveilling their neighborhood from evening hours through the early morning, Sacramento (CBS13) reported.

The mysterious drone(s) is/are “hovering over residential neighborhoods and looking down on homes” in Sacramento’s upper Land Park neighborhood between 6 p.m. and 6 a.m., according to CBS13.

“It just doesn’t feel good,” said Ben Allen. “It hovers around. You don’t know what they’re looking at and monitoring.”

Neighbors say they have heard the drone(s) buzzing overhead at all hours of the night, and well before sunrise.

“The drone would fly over here, come over my neighbor’s house, fly over our house right here,” resident John Mattox told CBS13. “You come home from work, it would be operating, go to bed it was still operating, and this would repeat day after day.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Let me guess; these two housing communities, Alder Grove, and Marian Vista, are not on the plush side of town.

Unemployment, no matter what official statistics say, is still very high, because low wage jobs have been offshored/outsourced.

Poverty, coupled with unemployment, leads to desperation, driving the presence of gangs, crime, and drugs.

All the surveillance in the world will not make this go away, even though it may mean charging and convictions for what are essentially minor crimes; this is not "progress".

Progress in avoiding these kinds of situations, translates into education for jobs which will exist, and do exist, in the 21st century; unskilled labor has now become replaced by robots, so there is no room, or need, for that. There are skilled programs which require a short certification time, and which will pay well enough to get a leg up.

This is what the city of Sacramento should be doing.

Of course, that... would be logical.

PEOPLE WHO EXPRESS OUTRAGE OVER TSA GROPING CAN NOW BE PUT ON A WATCHLIST

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is forming a new watchlist specifically for people who give its agents a hard time during security screenings, and are deemed “unruly” passengers who act in ways that TSA agents find “offensive.”

The New York Times obtained a five-page directive recently published by the agency announcing the establishment of the watchlist or “95 list,” which is a new program that began in February.

The directive, which was reportedly issued by Darby LaJoye, TSA’s assistant administrator for security operations, states that “An intent to injure or cause physical pain is not required, nor is an actual physical injury.”

The criteria that could land a person on the list is extremely vague and could include anything from loitering near the checkpoint to having a verbal altercation with a TSA agent. The directive also suggested that anyone who presents “challenges to the safe and effective completion of screening” could be added to the list.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have a completely peaceful, non-violent answer to this, where it is practical; never take any public transportation, including planes, ever again.

Does anyone remember the economic impact of the Montgomery Bus Boycott back in the 50s?!? The Montgomery Bus Boycott

When the owners of public transport realize that such a move, on the part of a huge number of travelers, may bankrupt them, perhaps they will prevail upon the head of the TSA to make its workers a little less fascistic in their gropemania, and a little more traveler-friendly.

We are rather "kneecapped" on this here in Hawaii, as in order to get to somewhere else, we need to either board a plane or a boat. But on the mainland, the choice has been made crystal clear, courtesy of the TSA.

And folks, please remember; the TSA workers are those people who could not get a job flipping burgers at a hamburger joint!!

The Northern California judge says he would handle the sexual assault case of former Stanford University swimmer Brock Turner the same way today as he did almost two years ago, though it's the reason he is the target of a June 5 recall election and has become the self-described "most hated man on the internet."

FACEBOOK ANNOUNCES PARTNERSHIP WITH THINK TANK CONNECTED TO NATO, MILITARY INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX

Facebook has announced a new partnership with the Atlantic Council, a think tank with close ties to the Military Industrial Complex and Defense Department.

On Thursday Facebook announced a new partnership with the Atlantic Council, a think tank which officially claims to provide a forum for international political, business, and intellectual leaders. The social media giant said the partnership is aimed at preventing Facebook from “being abused during elections.” The press release promotes Facebook’s efforts to fight fake news by using artificial intelligence, as well as working with outside experts and governments.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation: Facebook will, henceforward, be weaponizing all information on it, for the benefit of the DOD and military industrial complex.

If there was EVER a reason to run, not walk from, Facebook, it is this moment, in its evolution, to abandon it permanently.

Ripping children from parents will shatter America’s soul

When I was 4 years old, I was taken away from my parents. We were refugees from Vietnam, fleeing the end of the war in 1975. With 130,000 other Vietnamese, we were put into refugee camps. To leave, we needed American sponsors, but no sponsor was willing to host my entire family. One took my parents, one took my 10-year-old brother and one took me.

Electromagnetic radiation from power lines and phone masts poses 'credible' threat to wildlife, report finds 

Electromagnetic radiation from power lines, wi-fi, phone masts and broadcast transmitters poses a ‘credible’ threat to wildlife, a new report suggests, as environmentalists warned the 5G roll out could cause greater harm.

An analysis of 97 studies by the EU-funded review body EKLIPSE concluded that radiation is a potential risk to insect and bird orientation and plant health.

However the charity Buglife warned that despite good evidence of the harms there was little research ongoing to assess the impact, or apply pollution limits.

The charity said ‘serious impacts on the environment could not be ruled out’ and called for 5G transmitters to be placed away from street lights, which attract insects, or areas where they could harm wildlife.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am grateful for this charity's concern about wildlife, but what about electromagnetic effects on human beings, please?!?

Actually, the 1 Percent Are Still The Problem

One of the nice things about Occupy Wall Street was that it provided a tidy shorthand to describe the problem of income inequality at a moment when the world didn’t really have one. Today, it’s a cliche: the 99 percent vs. the 1 percent. But at the time, that brief phrase awakened many people to the idea that America’s riches were distributed more unevenly than they thought, and that an increasingly outrageous share was being concentrated at the very top.

HUNDREDS OF HANDBAGS, 72 SUITCASES FULL OF JEWELS SEIZED FROM OUSTED MALAYSIAN LEADER'S HOME

Former prime minister Najib Razak and his wife were barred last week from leaving Malaysia in the wake of his stunning election loss, over fears that they may evade prosecution in a massive corruption scandal.

Then, police announced Friday that raids on properties linked to Najib had turned up 72 suitcases stuffed with jewels and cash. It took five trucks to haul away some of the belongings, because police also had to fit 284 boxes filled with designer handbags - including Birkin bags from Hermes, which can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Photos show police carrying out orange boxes, with labels reading "Paris, H Bag Gray Croco Skin Hermes" and "Switzerland, Bag Blue w/Diamonte Croc Skin, Hermes."

"Exactly how much jewelry, I would not be able to say, because we know that we confiscated bags containing jewelry, and the number of jewelry is rather big," Amar Singh, head of Malaysia's commercial crime investigation unit, told reporters on Friday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Certain American politicians who believe that they are "too big to nail" for corruption, please take note!!

US SUPPORTS VENEZUELA'S DEMOCRACY BY ACCUSING MADURO OF DRUG PROFITEERING AHEAD OF ELECTIONS

The US has criticized the upcoming Venezuelan elections as 'fake,' and rushed to support 'democracy' by slapping a top ruling-party member with new sanctions and accusing President Nicolas Maduro of drug-trade profiteering.
The "second most powerful man in Venezuela," Diosdado Cabello, immediately brushed aside the accusations and new US sanctions introduced against him for allegedly heading a drug ring. He said such slander would only strengthen the ruling party's candidate, Maduro, to win Sunday's elections.

"In truth I feel liberated, that imperialism is busy persecuting this humble soldier and his family, strengthens me, forces me every day to continue fighting for the causes that I believe and to be faithful and loyal to our beloved people," Cabello, who is vice president of the United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV), said in a tweet after the US Treasury slapped him – as well as two members of his family, and his "front man" – with sanctions ahead of the election.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These most-probably fact-free smears are not going to change the way this election will go.

Russia has already started to assist economically by using the petromoneda, an oil-backed currency, and short of an outright US invasion, Venezuela is going to continue upon the political road it is on right now.

White House pushes ahead with Mideast peace plan

The Trump administration is aiming to roll out its much-hyped but long-delayed Middle East peace plan next month amid signs it may further alienate the Palestinians by slashing millions of dollars in funding for humanitarian and development projects in the West Bank and Gaza.
Note: There will be no decrease of funds for Israeli....ever, just increases and more military aid so Israel can defend itself against slight shots and kites with burning tails!

DOJ STILL WANTS TO LOCK PEOPLE UP FOR PROTESTING THE GOVERNMENT, OR EVEN JUST TALKING ABOUT IT

The government is still trying to land a conviction from its mass arrest of participants in last year’s Inauguration Day protests in Washington, DC. So far, it has nothing to show for its efforts but a far-too-casual disregard for civil liberties.

The government compounded its unconstitutional behavior in court when its lawyer (Jennifer Kerkhoff) tried to downplay the significance of a foundational part of our justice system — that the accusers must prove “beyond a reasonable doubt” the accused committed a crime.

After these horrendous actions and the acquittal of its first batch of J20 prosecutees, the DOJ is finally going to attempt something a bit more targeted.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Trump's Administration will not rest, until the entire First Amendment to the Constitution has become thoroughly damaged, that any attempt at peaceful, dissenting speech, can now be criminalized.

Gaza border protests resume as UN calls for inquiry

"Israel completely rejects the resolution that was adopted by an automatic anti-Israel majority whose results were known from the start," he said. "Israel will continue to defend its citizens and soldiers as it has the right to defend itself."

UN human rights chief lambastes Israel for Gaza protest killings

"They are, in essence, caged in a toxic slum from birth to death," he said of the Gazans on Friday, adding the occupation must come to an end.
Israel defended its forces, and denounced Zeid’s statement. Indeed, UN ambassador Aviva Raz Shechter called his comments "politically motivated.”
Note: Let's get our terminology correct. Israel is terrorist. Israel is Illegal occupier.

It looks like President Trump’s attacks on Amazon go beyond tweets: He reportedly lobbied the USPS to double delivery rates

Ask someone — like this Amazon reporter — if there’s anything that can slow Amazon down, and you’ll likely hear an answer that revolves around regulatory concerns; the company continues to flex its power at a time when the U.S. president is looking for reasons to make life harder for Jeff Bezos and his company.

Essential history to understand the present: Lie-started and illegal wars on Iraq and Afghanistan, rhetoric for war on Iran

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

The following is my first white paper on the US so-called War on Terror, prompted by the Bush-regime's lies becoming so numerous that I needed to document them because I could no longer remember all of them while teaching high school government and history classes. I began this paper in 2005, updated until 2009, and offer more recent but less extensive versions here and here.
