Orlando airport cash seizure: Feds seek to keep $129K they say is tainted by drug trafficking

According to the lawsuit, Simon, 32, who would tell authorities he had a jewelry business in Orlando, was making his way through the airport for an American Airlines 5:25 a.m. flight to Los Angeles.

“The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) discovered a large amount of bundled currency in Simon’s carry-on bag as he went through the screening process at the security checkpoint,” the lawsuit states. “The information was passed on to law enforcement.”

OUTBREAK In LA: Flea-Borne Typhus Has Reached ‘Epidemic Levels’ - Mac Slavo

An outbreak of typhus has struck downtown Los Angeles. The outbreak has been blamed on the skyrocketing number of homeless people in the area.

According to the Los Angeles County Health Department, 20 cases of the rare, flea-borne infectious disease, which is also associated with poor sanitary conditions and overcrowding, have been recorded in Pasadena alone over the past two months. Health officials now say that the outbreak has reached “epidemic levels,” according to the New York Post.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It seems that the plagues and earth devastations falling upon this country right now, are of nearly Biblical proportions.

The question is, how is California going to fix this?!? Governor Brown needs to consult with his finest medical/scientific minds to get this sorted, and think very carefully here.

Bikini Girls And Cyberwars

The Times claims to have identified the Kremlin’s latest secret weapon in Cyberwars – “Bikini Girl” @Organicerica. Except there is no evidence @Organicerica has any Russian links or promotes any Russian interests.

It does appear likely that @Organicerica is a bot. The Times claims this is proven by the timing and regularity of the postings (interesting as they claim the same kind of activity pattern proves nothing in the case of Philip Cross). I am prepared to accept, for the sake of argument, that @Organicerica is a bot, or at best a young woman running an automated posting programme.

But what is the output?

Promotion of organic restaurants in Seattle.

Environmental campaigning particularly against pesticides and genetically modified food.

Nothing whatsoever on wider politics, foreign policy, Clinton.

And nothing whatsoever related to Russia.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am having a Picard double face palm, at warp speed, upon reading this; it is pure codswallop, and reeks of desperation on the cusp of madness!!

Angry Democrats Vow "Day Of Reckoning Coming For Republicans"

The bitter battle over Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court has exacerbated the nation’s political divide and left many Americans emotionally raw. It’s also given new definition to the high stakes of November’s election.

After a nailbiter of a Supreme Court nomination until the very last minute, angry Democrats have come out in force, vowing to extract revenge on Republicans with the nation’s top Democrat urging supporters to make Republicans "pay a price" for putting Brett Kavanaugh on to the Supreme Court.

As the Washington Examiner reported, in a fundraising email that follows threats from other public officials over President Trump’s second court victory, DNC Chairman Tom Perez wrote, "Make Republicans pay a price for Brett Kavanaugh."

From DNC's Perez:

Here is one thing we've learned from the Brett Kavanaugh fight: We can never, ever, trust congressional Republicans to stand up to Donald Trump.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is with great sadness that I read what Tom Perez has written.

The one candidate they could, actually, get elected in 2020, they are ignoring like the very plague; her name is Tulsi Gabbard, a Representative from Hawaii, who is very bright, a pro-peace Veteran, and with a blended heritage (she is Samoan American), and a lot to say about the US involvement with Syria.

I fully expect a very intensive series of hot military encounters around the world, potentially leading to a US-generated world war before the end of President Trump's first term; so, Tom Perez, this is why I can assure you that by 2020, the American people are going to be absolutely ready for a pro-Peace candidate.

Are wireless voting machines vulnerable? Florida, other states say they’re safe enough

Barely a month before midterm elections, voting integrity advocates and electronic voting experts want the federal government to issue an official warning to states that use voting machines with integrated cellular modems that the machines are vulnerable to hacks, potentially interfering with the ballot counting.

Once seen as a useful tool to provide quick election results, voting machines with cellular modems are now subject to fierce debate over how easy it would be to break into them and change the results.

Such machines are certified for use in Florida, Illinois, Michigan and Wisconsin.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If you have not seen the documentary "Hacking Democracy", now, right before our midterms, would be a great time to see what is has to say on fraudulent election results.

Sino-US Tensions: Pentagon Accuses China of Threatening America’s National Security

Sino/US tensions risk boiling over into something much more serious than already.

Washington considers China’s significant political, economic, trade, and military strength as a threat to US national security.

Accusations by US officials against China, Russia, and other countries are all about wanting no nations compromising Washington’s hegemonic agenda – its aim for unchallenged control.

The Trump regime slammed what it called Beijing’s “unfair trade” and other practices, along with accusing the country of intellectual property theft, cyberwar, interfering in America’s electoral process, militarizing the South China Sea, and controlling offshore islands it claims belong to other regional countries.

The US also claims the right to conduct freedom of navigation operations close to Chinese waters its officials consider provocative.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I think this paper was created in such a way as to anger the Chinese government, but also accomplish another agenda, which I will get to later in this post; that the US military is behind China, in nearly every sector of its weaponry, has to be laid squarely at the feet of the Pentagon, and those contractors with whom they are so cosy, and who give so much money to political campaigns as to prevent any reasonable, and long overdue criticisms of their products or services from harming their bottom line.

But what concerns me here, is the bristling, angry tone this takes, against both the Chinese government, and Chinese businesses, and there is a reason for that.

The Chinese are very practical, and bright, people. They understand that there are those in the bowels of power in DC who would love to see a regime change in both Russia and China. Paul Craig Roberts: Washington plans to nuke Russia and China Understanding this, can you possibly blame Chinese leadership for doing everything in its power to prevent this from happening?!?

But the belligerency here is the sort of J'accuse! rhetoric one expects to hear as the demonization prelude to a US war against China, and attempting to mold American opinion positively toward this agenda.

I frankly think that, even with the reinstitution of the draft, a war against China would be one of the most pigheadedly, ham-fistedly stupid things this government could do, and particularly at this time in our military's history. We don't have the weaponry, the manufacturing, the money, or the troop strength to insure a positive outcome to a conventional war with China.

And if the US goes to war against China, we had better count on Russia coming in on the Chinese side of the equation. Folks, I am saying this because I care about both my country, and our military; this potential war may well not end well for the US at all.

FBI informant in terror stings owned limo in deadly crash, state source confirms

The owner of the limousine that crashed in Schoharie, killing 18 people on board and two pedestrians is a former FBI informant who testified in two high-profile terrorism cases, a state official confirmed Monday.

Shahed Hussain owns Prestige Limousine in Wilton, the official said. The limousine company is being scrutinized as federal and state investigators try to determine what caused the crash.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Monday said the limo involved in Saturday's crash at the intersection of Route 30A and Route 30 in Schoharie failed a state Department of Transportation inspection last month and should not have been on the road.

The driver, Cuomo said, did not have a proper license to operate the vehicle.

Brig. Gen. Vereen: After missing recruiting goal, Army must adapt

On Friday, Vereen, now the deputy commanding general for operations at U.S. Army Recruiting Command, walked back into the Fayetteville Recruiting Center, which is still located in the Eutaw Village Shopping Center.

Other than the location, Vereen said Army recruiting has changed a lot over the course of his 30-year career.

And now, following a year in which the Army fell short of its recruiting goals for the first time since 2005, the general said the Army would need to continue to adapt.

The Army must increase incentives for recruiters and decrease the bureaucracy soldiers must wade through on a regular basis, he said.

And recruiters must fully embrace social media, Vereen added, as the Army takes more interest in eSports and online gaming.

“We have to go where the kids are,” he said. “And they don’t look at TV anymore. We’ve almost got to change our whole way of advertising.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would frankly suggest that General Vereen and his recruiting colleagues do not have the luxury of time to "tweak" their approach to young people, with all the potential wars in which the US is about to become embroiled.

Right after the mid-terms, I think we will see a very muscular effort from the government and its Deep State, to reintroduce the draft, because the military is stretched so thinly right now.

Take a look at the following articles, as a plausible possibility that this will come about, and perhaps as soon as the end of the year:

Iran regime change will need a draft of the American military

Draft executive order shows how Trump wants to grow the U.S. military significantly

Congress considering Drafting Young Women as well.

Criticism Of Israeli Policy Is Not Anti-Semitic

I was provoked to write this discussion of what is and what isn’t anti-Semitism by an article in Ha’aretz on the “controversy” created by the awarding of the 2018 Nobel Prize in Chemistry to George P. Smith. According to the reporting, Smith is not only a brilliant scientist whose work has helped lead to the creation of new drugs that can treat cancer and a range of autoimmune diseases, he is also an outspoken supporter of Palestinian rights and a critic of Israeli policies.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

For giggles and grins, I have just visited the canarymission.org website.

Under section of the website, featuring the "individuals" who should now be "shunned, and disconnected from any possibility of life with dignity", I saw a lot of smiling faces of generally young people.

I saw optimism in these smiles, and not a desire for brutal retaliation for what Israel has done to the Palestinians, but a hopeful, peaceful vision of what life could be like, for both Israel and its Palestinians, if there is some rapprochement, intellectually, artistically, and ultimately, geopolitically, could happen.

One of my great heroes in 20th century music, is the great instrumentalist and conductor, Daniel Barenboim, a Jewish citizen of Argentina; Spain; Palestine; and Israel. He is now the director or the Berlin State Opera.

As noted also, in Wickileaks: "Barenboim is known for his work with the West–Eastern Divan Orchestra, a Seville-based orchestra of young Arab and Israeli musicians, and as a resolute critic of the Israeli occupation of Palestinian territories."

In my world, all people trying to bridge horrific gaps in perceptions about "the other" in a peaceful, loving, and logical way, are all heroes; and this gentlemen is absolutely one of those.

Tesla to end up like Lehman Brothers once Musk's 'deception' revealed – investor

The ‘deception’ around electric car maker Tesla will catch up to the company soon, according to hedge fund manager David Einhorn. He compared Elon Musk's behavior to Lehman Brothers executives shortly before the bank's demise.

In a letter to investors, Einhorn wrote that like the investment bank that famously collapsed a decade ago “the deception is about to catch up to TSLA. Elon's Musk erratic behavior suggests that he sees it the same way."

According to Einhorn, “Lehman threatened short sellers, refused to raise capital (it even bought back stock), and management publicly suggested it would go private. Months later, shareholders, creditors, employees and the global economy paid a big price when management’s reckless behavior led to bankruptcy.”

17 Years to the Day the US Invaded, Over 100 Killed Across Afghanistan

17 years ago, the United States began its invasion and occupation of Afghanistan, officially launched to pursue al-Qaeda in general and Osama bin Laden in particular. Bin Laden is long since dead, but the US still has a massive war raging in Afghanistan, one which is going extremely poorly and shows no signs of ending.

On the war’s anniversary, fighting raged particularly hard, with 14 different provinces across Afghanistan reporting Taliban attacks, and many of them leading to substantial battles. All told, over 110 people were reported killed in 24 hours, roughly half of them Taliban, and the rest included 19 civilians and 35 Afghan soldiers.

Taliban attacks looked to secure territory gains in several districts, including strategically important districts along the Kabul-Kandahar highway.The main highway in Afghanistan, and one of the few major paved roads in the nation, officials say it is closed to traffic until fighting is resolved.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Although none of the presstitute corporate media had much to say about it, yesterday, 7 October marks the 17th year after the US invasion and occupation of Iraq.

Within that 17 years, the Taliban presence and territory have been greater, tearing off hunks more territory than they initially controlled. The puppet coalition "government" is impotent in the extreme to deliver anything of substance to the Afghani people, and corrupt beyond belief.

So, why in heaven's name is the US still there?!? Well, here is what I can tell you; they cannot leave Afghanistan, because the US military/industrial complex cannot admit that they have been defeated here, just as they cannot admit that they have ultimately been defeated in Iraq and Libya, where things continually devolve from bad to worse for the Iraqi and Libyan people.

Once you understand that all wars are economic, and these wars of aggression in which the US government loves to embroil itself, are simply about control of resources, period, end of discussion.

In Iraq and Libya, it was about the oil (and in Libya, preventing Qaddafi from initiating a gold dinar as its currency, which would definitely taken a bite out of the US dollar, anther economic reason for his assassination.)

In Afghanistan, the Bush administration believed it had the perfect lie with which to persuade the American people that Afghanistan should be attacked; after all, they were hiding Bin Laden, the "alleged" mastermind of 9/11, and with the US sentiment angry at those who allegedly did this, and wanted to "do something about it".

Bush molded our collective national distress to his narrative for the reason Afghanistan should be attacked, and little was said here in the US about it invading and occupying that country in the summer of 2001, while US diplomats
were quietly telling the heads of other countries that this was going to happen. US planned war in Afghanistan long before September 11

Bush's negotiations with the Taliban went south right before the bombing on 9/11: New Book Details Bush/Big Oil Negotiations With Taliban BEFORE WTC

This article goes on to state: 'In the beginning of August, the Bush administration and its Big Oil cohorts delivered what amounted to an ultimatum to the Taliban.

"The Taliban representatives were reportedly told by Bush/Big Oil: Accept our offer of "a carpet of gold or you'll get a carpet of bombs."

And what members of this government can NEVER tell the friends or families, grieving over a military personnel's death in Afghanistan, is the following brutal reality: "I'm sorry, but your kid didn't die for honor, glory, or preserving the 'American Way of Life'; he died so that the US government, and business cartels who own it, will have unlimited access to Afghanistan's pipelines; its rare earth minerals, and, of course, control of the opium poppy crop, and weaponise the potent, cheap heroin which is created from it, and make sure it flows like water in countries we don't particularly like (such as Russia)."

This, my friends, is the whole, sordid, ugly truth as to why we are in Afghanistan; and unless a miracle happens, our country's military will be staying there in perpetuam.

Six cases of rare 'polio-like' illness diagnosed in children in Minnesota

Six children in Minnesota have been diagnosed with a rare "polio-like" disease since mid-September, state health officials said.

Acute flaccid myelitis, known as AFM, affects the body's nervous system -- specifically, the spinal cord -- and can cause paralysis. Unlike polio, there is no vaccine for AFM.

Minnesota typically sees less than one case a year, the state Department of Health reported. The disease typically affects children; all the recent cases in Minnesota were in children younger than 10.
AFM can develop from a viral infection, although its exact cause is unknown.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

According to a Google Search: "Many of the germs that cause AFM are contagious, such as enteroviruses, which typically cause mild illnesses in children such as respiratory infections. ... Some of the germs known to cause AFM are contagious between people while others are not."

But this hasn't been the first time that we have seen American kids infected by this disease:

Confirmed cluster of polio-like 'mystery illness' in Washington State

Here is a list of the top 10 countries for immigration to the US in 2014:

Top Ten Countries of Origins: Legal Immigrants to the United states

Theoretically, every single person asking for the right to emigrate to the US, has to have a standard medical exam; but what about illegal immigrants, who will do not comply with such a rule?!?

I think that we need to look for clusters of these cases, and look for immigrant populations in those clusters who have not had the standard medical exam or care, and a vector may very well present itself.

Actress Emily Ratajkowski Told to ‘Put on a Bra’ During Kavanaugh Protest

Actress and model Emily Ratajkowski was told to “put on a bra” by her social media followers as she protested against President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

Holding a sign declaring: “Respect female existence or expect our resistance,” the 27-year-old was one of the dozens of protesters to storm the atrium of a Senate office building on Friday before she was arrested alongside fellow actress Amy Schumer.

Science journals publish intentionally stupid liberal propaganda studies claiming men should anally self-penetrate to “increase feminist values”

A trio of researchers – Helen Pluckrose, a researcher and author; James Lindsay, an author with a doctorate in mathematics; and Peter Boghossian, a philosophy professor – set out to prove that academic bias has all but totally delegitimized the scientific process. And to say they succeeded would be an understatement.

According to reports, the three individuals were able to get seven fake studies accepted for publishing, and four of these have already been published online. Seven more are said to be under review, and six others were rejected.

So what was the subject matter of the accepted studies? One of them suggests that men should insert objects up their rear ends in order to “decrease transphobia” and improve men’s understanding of “feminist values.”

CREATING NATIONAL BIOMETRIC SYSTEM FOR PATIENT MATCHING WILL THREATEN PRIVACY AND SECURITY

Pew led off the study with this dubious claim about developing a national system of patient identification: “Enhanced Patient Matching Is Critical to Achieving Full Promise of Digital Health Records.” However, problems abound with both the idea of pushing a national patient ID strategy to link patient data and the proposed use of a national infrastructure to collect and store the biometrics of Americans, such as their DNA, fingerprints or iris scans.

At an event with the study’s authors, Pew claimed “many of the participants agreed that getting organizations to settle on one unified national strategy for records matching is more crucial than agreeing on one technology,” Politico’s “Morning eHealth” newsletter reported.

Turkey claims Saudi dissident was killed, dismembered inside Saudi consulate

Turkish government sources have said that a former trusted aide of the Saudi royal family, who was shunned by Riyadh after criticizing Saudi policies, was murdered inside the Saudi Arabian consulate in Istanbul. Jamal Khashoggi, 59, is an American-educated former adviser to Saudi royals. He worked for years as an advisor to Prince Turki al-Faisal, one of Saudi Arabia’s most recognizable public figures who represented the Kingdom as ambassador to the United States and the United Kingdom. But in 2015, when Mohammad bin Salman, favorite son of Saudi Arabia’s King Salman, began to rise through the ranks of the royal family, Khashoggi became sharply critical of changes in the Kingdom’s style of governance. He moved to the United States, from where he began to criticize Saudi Arabia’s involvement in the civil war in Yemen, its support for the repression of political freedoms in Egypt, and other issues.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Note that none of this comes from identifiable resources which wanted to state anything for the record, and there is utterly no evidence to support the possibility that the story is either true, nor untrue.

But looking at Bin Salman's butchery in Yemen, it is entirely possible this assassination happened, unless and until Khashoggi either presents himself, or the body parts are found, and a decent forensic examination can be done.

There is enough Turkish/Saudi animosity on a number of levels, and has been for many years; but to spin up a story like this with which to tar the Saudi monarchy?!? One has to wonder.

‘WE’RE INDEPENDENT’: INDIA DEFIES US SANCTIONS OVER BILLION-WORTH S-400 DEAL WITH RUSSIA

India’s not cowed by US threats of sanctions for buying Russia’s S-400 missile systems, as it follows an “independent policy,” an army chief said, adding that his country had to think of what is “strategically important.”
General Bipin Rawat implied that his country is no vassal state, and it has every right to go ahead with a $5.4 billion purchase of five surface-to-air missile systems from Russia.

He spoke at the General K V Krishna Rao inaugural memorial lecture in the Indian capital, New Delhi.

“When Russians asked about the American sanctions, my reply was, ‘yes, we do appreciate that there could be sanctions on us, but we follow an independent policy,’” the general said after a six-day visit to Russia, during which he met a string of top Armed Forces officials.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There are a number of countries which are eager to ditch both the dollar, and the SWIFT system of exchange, in order to do what is best for their countries and economies, and buy Russian-made military equipment.

This threat of sanctions will only push India and Russia close together, just as have sanctions on Iran pushed it closer to Russia and China.

Sorry, but I don't think that this was the design intent of those in the bowels of power in DC, who decided that sanctions....could resolve everything; in fact, these sanctions appear to be exploding, collectively, like a box of bad trick cigars, right in their faces.

LIBERAL WRITERS, ACTIVISTS ATTACK ‘WHITE WOMEN’ OVER KAVANAUGH

Liberal writers and activists responded to Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation over the weekend by attacking “white women.”

The New York Times on Saturday evening published an op-ed titled “White Women, Come Get Your People.” The op-ed’s author, Alexis Grenell, attacked Republican women who supported Kavanaugh as “gender traitors” in league with the “patriarchy.”

Grenell claimed that “white women benefit from patriarchy by trading on their whiteness to monopolize resources for mutual gain.”

White women “are expected to support the patriarchy by marrying within their racial group, reproducing whiteness and even minimizing violence against their own bodies,” the liberal writer asserted.

There Was No Debate When We Needed One

The Democrats and their feminist allies failed the country in their approach to the Kavanaugh hearing. Instead of finding out whether Kavanaugh believes in the unitary executive theory that the president has powers unaccountable to Congress and the Judiciary and agrees that a Justice Department underling, a Korean immigrant, can write secret memos that permit the president to violate the US Constitution, US statutory law, and international treaties, the Democrats’ entire focus was on a vague and unsubstantiated accusation that Kavanaugh when 17 years old and under the influence of alcohol tussled fully clothed with a fully clothed 15 year old girl in a bed at an unchaperoned house party.

Twitter Afire as Rose McGowan Calls #MeToo 'Lie', Then Backtracks on Claim

Rose McGowan, once one of the #MeToo campaign's leading figures, has slammed the campaign’s celebrity supporters as “douchebags” and complained that she has been excluded from the movement in an interview with The Sunday Times.

“They’re not champions. I just think they’re losers. I don’t like them…How do I explain the fact that I got a GQ Man of the Year award and no women's magazines and no women's organizations have supported me?" McGowan told the newspaper.

The actress, whose revelations about producer Hervey Weinstein allegedly raping her prompted discussions about sexual assault and the predatory behavior of Hollywood power brokers, claimed that she’s been left out of #MeToo events the newspaper described as "campaign lunches or survivors’ brunches."

'I'll educate myself on his atrocities and racist views': Twitter trolls force US astronaut Scott Kelly to APOLOGISE for praising Winston Churchill... but he is then savaged for criticising 'the man who saved the world from Nazis' (12 Pics)

Retired astronaut Scott Kelly felt compelled to apologize for quoting Winston Churchill after some social media users criticized him for endorsing the 'racist' former British Prime Minister.
But he also came under fire for apologizing from critics who accuse Kelly of caving into a Twitter hate mob and point out that Churchill is 'one of the greatest figures in history and helped defeat the Nazis'.
On Sunday, Kelly tweeted: 'One of the greatest leaders of modern times, Sir Winston Churchill said, "in victory, magnanimity." I guess those days are over.'

The Democratic Party Platform for 2018 in One Savage Cartoon

Republican Senator Cory Gardner of Colorado revealed that his wife received a text message with a video showing a beheading, and someone doxxed his family members:
In the wake of his vote to confirm Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh on Saturday, Republican Sen. Cory Gardner, R-Colo., revealed to Fox News on Sunday that his wife had received a graphic text message with a video depicting a beheading, and that someone has publicly posted the names and addresses of his family members.
Gardner announced his support for Kavanaugh in July, and reaffirmed it after reviewing the supplemental FBI report into uncorroborated sexual misconduct allegations against him.
Late last month, Gardner received a letter from an anonymous individual apparently in Denver, alleging that Kavanaugh had “shoved” someone up against a wall “very aggressively and sexually” during an outing in 1998 in front of four witnesses. The allegation was later deemed not to be credible.

Colin Powell On Trump: ‘Me The President’ As Opposed To ‘We The People'

Former Secretary of State Colin Powell told CNN's Fareed Zakaria GPS, that the world is aghast at the antics of Donald Trump, who insults everyone in his path and is dividing our nation into racial lines.

Joined by Madeline Albright, Powell gave a scathing review of Trump's behavior towards the U.S. press, its citizens, world allies and has suggest that Trump has formed a "Me The President" instead of "We The People" presidency.

'We used to be the leader of the world that wanted to be free, but not now."

He continued, “What are we doing? We’re walking away from agreements, we’re walking away from alliances that we used to have.”

Trump is demanding monies from our allies just like a mafia protection racket would do.

(*obviously Powell hasn't gotten over Bush sending him to the UN with that bull____ 'report' about Saddam's non existent 'nookular' weapons , so he's taken to consorting with the enemy , CNN .)

Former Google boss launches scathing Silicon Valley attack urging tech giants to end the delusion that it's making the world a better place

Jessica Powell said she had become tired of defending the company in her role as its top PR chief.

‘This is an industry that takes itself far too seriously, and its own responsibility not seriously enough,’ she added.

‘I want Silicon Valley to end the self-delusion and either fess up to the reality we are creating, or live up to the vision we market to the world each day. Because if you’re going to tell people you’re their saviour, you better be ready to be held to a higher standard.’

CHINESE ‘AGGRESSIVE INDUSTRY’ THREATENS US MILITARY COMPLEX, ‘STABLE BUDGET’ NEEDED – PENTAGON

A new Pentagon report calls China the main threat to the US military-industrial complex, sounding alarm over the decline of some “critical defense functions,” due to Beijing’s actions, workforce shortages and “unstable” funding.
“While multiple countries pursue policies to bolster their economies at the expense of America’s manufacturing sector, none has targeted our industrial base as successfully as China,” the report, titled ‘Assessing and Strengthening the Manufacturing and Defense Industrial Base and Supply Chain Resiliency of the United States,’ says.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Dear Pentagon: a word, please.

Understanding that China is on many US radars, as part of the US's "to do" list for regime change, Washington Plans to Nuke Russia and Chinacan you honestly blame China for wanting to be on the cutting edge of equipment, skilled personnel, and material which might be used to prevent that from happening?!? I

If not, then I must regretfully observe that the Pentagon has suffered from a catastrophic failure of imagination, with regard to China.

So, Pentagon, please: as they used to say in NASA, "Work the Problem".?

It is painfully obvious you fully appreciate what has to be done; so it is high time, get these issues sorted, and with a industrial-strength, titanium-shielded timeline you won't allow to slip in terms of taking care of this.

The American people count on you to do what is right, in terms of taking care of us, and shielding us from harm other nations may plot against us.

So instead of blaming the Chinese government and military for having had a magnificent grasp of the obvious here, let's move forward to make sure that We the People are kept safe.

Having read this document, and living here on Oahu, I understand that one Chinese bomb could decimate it; so color me more than a little nervous if things between the US and China escalate from trade war to a shooting war.

SAUDI CROWN PRINCE SAYS WON’T PAY US FOR OWN SECURITY

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman said his country will not pay Washington for its own security, saying his oil-rich kingdom was created even before the US itself.

“Saudi Arabia was there before the United States of America. It’s there since 1744, I believe more than 30 years before the United States of America,” bin Salman told Bloomberg in an exclusive interview late Friday.

Last week, US President Donald Trump said the Saudi King would not last for two weeks in power without US military support.

But bin Salman downplayed Trump’s remarks, saying “you have to accept that any friend will say good things and bad things”.

“So you cannot have 100 per cent friends saying good things about you, even in your family. You will have some misunderstandings. So we put that in that category,” he said.

The Crown Prince said Riyadh has paid for all weapons bought from the US.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Money can apparently buy hubris, as it has done for the B.O.Y. (aka the Butcher of Yemen, aka Prince Salman)

Take, for example, his absolute disingenuous statements on the war against Yemen, which he actually gave the order to start, after the Houthis overthrew the al-Hadi government in 2015.

This horrific war, which has cost thousands of Yemeni lives to date, and will probably cost thousands more, could be stopped in a heartbeat, if the Saudi government were actually committed to a negotiated settlement; but the Saudi government wants complete capitulation on the part of both the Houthis, and the Yemeni people. And I will warn you: the images below are very graphic, but honest depictions of what the cost of this war has been to the Yemeni people.

Saudi-backed delegates leave Yemen peace talks The article goes on to state:

"A delegation from Yemen’s former government has left UN-brokered talks in Geneva after representatives of the Houthi movement were prevented by Saudi Arabia from attending the negotiations."

If the Houthis were not present, there was truly no one with whom the Saudis could negotiate.

But what is worse, is knowing that one is a citizen of a government which continues to aid and abet Saudi war crimes in Yemen; that is, of course, the Unhinged, Surveilled, State of Amerika, which continues to provide mid-air refueling to Saudi war jets, and "guidance" for their strikes - like, most probably, the school bus with Yemeni kids going on a field trip, assassinated by a Saudi air strike Saudi-led coalition strikes school bus in Yemen, murdering at least 29 children

Saudi soldiers continue to to murder and maim infants, children, women, and the medically fragile elderly, and bomb schools and hospitals with impunity.

Images: children dead and maimed for life from Saudi bombing raids

With port blockades, accomplished through US help, they are preventing food aid from coming in at all, so much of the population is malnourished to the point of death. With the coming takeover of the Hodeida port, which looks to be happening soon, this will cut off nearly all of the food for famished innocents.

Images: Yemeni children dying from malnutrition

And finally, there has been an epidemic of cholera, courtesy of Saudi military having thoroughly destroyed all the water infrastructure in Yemen ( using a possibly weaponized strain, as was done by the American military during World War II) which has run rampant, and is, as of yet, completely uncontrolled.

Images: Yemeni children dying of cholera

If we do nothing, and say nothing, we, too, are complicit in these war crimes.

And so I ask my brother and sister Americans, in the most peaceful, logical way possible, to advocate for the US government withdrawing all its troops and supplies who, and which, have been supporting Saudi war crimes in Yemen.

The situation in Yemen has been described by human rights officials as one of the worst, ongoing catastrophes of the 21st century; I would politely suggest that the US not continue to enable these war Saudi war crimes here.

I am sure that, because of the circumstances of his birth, into one of the most monied, and aristocratic families on the face of this earth, that Prince Mohammed Bin Salman, has been awarded many honorifics in terms of his titles.

But I would hope that he understands fully, that "the one" which will stick, after he has passed, and at the top of the list after this genocide in Yemen is finally over, is that of "The Butcher of Yemen".

ISRAEL SLASHES GAZA FISHING ZONE BY 33% IN RETALIATION FOR WEEKLY PROTESTS

The offshore area where Gazans are allowed to fish has been reduced by Tel Aviv to six nautical miles, in retaliation to the violence during weekly border protests, amid heightening tensions between Israelis and Palestinians.
Tightening Israel’s economic blockade of the Gaza Strip, Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman ordered the reduction of the Palestinian offshore fishing zone from nine nautical miles to six. The drastic measure was taken in response to the ongoing Great March of Return riots and to sea protests, in which Palestinian boats sail up to the maritime boundary between Israel and the coastal Palestinian enclave.

“The defense minister’s decision was made following the violent rioting over the weekend near the [security] fence and attempts to harm IDF forces and launch confrontational flotillas at the maritime border,” said a statement issued by the ministry.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would like to politely remind Israel's Prime Minister, the IDF, Shin Bet, and the Knesset, that such mass punishment is considered a war crime, under the Geneva Conventions.

And I would like to also politely remind these individuals and groups within Israel, that if the decision is made to turn Gaza into your own personal shooting gallery as punishment for the Palestinians' expressing their desire for The Right of Return (enshrined by Israel's first Government), the world collectively may be thoroughly convinced that BDS is the only way to stop Israel's bad behaviour, is by swiftly paralyzing Israel's economy.

Do please consider that, because the hour of such a decision may not be terribly far away.

Police-Grade Surveillance Technology Comes to the Playground

As other elementary schools across the country were preparing for the new school year by cleaning classrooms and training teachers, Hermosa Elementary, in Artesia, New Mexico was also installing a network of wireless microphones that could pick up the specific concussive audio signature of gunfire. Placed high in classrooms and hallways, the golf-ball-sized devices can alert authorities to the sound and location of gunshots, reportedly within 20 seconds of firing. They can also identify make and model of guns, and automatically lock doors and sound alarms throughout the campus.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Note that every dime spent for surveillance, personnel, and related equipment is not the dime being spent on real education for these kids.

Were I to understand that this was happening in my child's public school, if home-schooling was permitted, I would pull that child out of public school immediately, schedule an appointment with the principal, and explain why I was doing this.

If I lived in a state where home schooling is not allowed, I would move to a state in which it was; if Mike and I had had children, this is something that would have been that an important issue for us.

The Weeping and Gnashing of Teeth by Crazed Feminist Jezebels

A reporter for PJ Media wrote of his experience while in the Senate chamber as he witnessed the Rabid Feminists of the Communist Democrat Party of Death go absolutely berserk!

He said it “sounded like the gates of hell opened up“ !

That was EXACTLY my thoughts as I watched the vote and my mind immediately remembered the audio I heard many years ago of the Siberian Hell Sounds that were recorded after drilling into the earth.

The echoing in the halls from these Jezebel’s sounded JUST LIKE that audio! The account is posted below the PJ Media article, along with an Art Bell clip as well.

“You would have thought I was at an exorcism in an insane asylum.”

“Then the roll was called, and it sounded like the gates of hell opened up. Nearly a dozen women erupted in unison, shouting, howling, screaming, in an unrecognizable venomous wail. They wouldn’t stop. There was fury, rage, hate, poison in the noise.”

America's New Aristocracy Lives in an Accountability-free Zone

Accountability is for the little people, immunity is for the ruling class. If this ethos seems familiar, that is because it has preceded some of the darkest moments in human history

When the former Enron CEO Jeffrey Skilling was released from prison a few weeks ago, the news conjured memories of a corporate scandal that now seems almost quaint – and it was also a reminder that Enron executives were among the last politically connected criminals to face any serious consequences for institutionalized fraud.
***
Since Skilling’s conviction 12 years ago, our society has been fundamentally altered by a powerful political movement whose goal is not merely another court seat, tax cut or election victory. This movement’s objective is far more revolutionary: the creation of an accountability-free zone for an ennobled aristocracy, even as the rest of the population is treated to law-and-order rhetoric and painfully punitive policy.

Let’s remember that in less than two decades, America has experienced the Iraq war, the financial crisis, intensifying economic stratification, an opioid plague, persistent gender and racial inequality and now seemingly unending climate change-intensified disasters. While the victims have been ravaged by these crime sprees, crises and calamities, the perpetrators have largely avoided arrest, inquisition, incarceration, resignation, public shaming and ruined careers.

That is because the United States has been turned into a safe space for a permanent ruling class.>>>

Trump: ‘Radical Dems have become too angry and dangerous to govern’

President Trump on Saturday touted a conservative victory after his Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, was confirmed as the 114th Justice after a contentious and dramatic assault from the left.

Speaking in Topeka, Kansas, Trump framed the Democratic resistance to Kavanaugh as an attempt by an “angry mob” to hijack the proceedings “in their quest for power.”

Kavanaugh confirmed: We the People are taking America back from the lunatic mob

The confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court is yet another demonstration of how We the Peopleare taking America back from the lunatic left-wing mob. To stop Kavanaugh, desperate Democrats tried everything: False allegations, fictional “witness” accounts, endless screaming in the Senate chambers, media smears, intimidation of conservative Senators, harassment of pro-Kavanaugh protesters and more. But the American people have had enough of the left-wing lunacy, and conservatives are finally learning how to fight back.

Video: The Death of American Democracy

The collapses of the Twin Towers of the World Trade Centre, on September 11, 2001, were the most frightening images that I have ever seen, up until May 24th, 2011, when Binyamin Netanyahu addressed a joint session of the United States Congress and received 29 standing ovations, along with many other outbursts of sycophantic applause.
It was the final nail in a coffin, the construction of which began long ago, and in it all remaining vestiges of democracy were joyfully laid to rest—by those sworn to protect it—as it became clear that the United States was now controlled by Enemies Inside its Gates.
Note: Anthony Charles Ashton Lawson passed away on the 8th of January, 2015 in Phuket, Thailand, at the age of 79 due to colon cancer. He was a class act right to the end!

I will not testify near or far
I will not testify in a train
I will not fly in a plane
I will not testify here or there
I will not testify anywhere
I will not testify first or last
I will not testify slow or fast
There is nothing more for me to say, I can’t remember anyway...

Is This The Most Vile and Disgusting Anti-Kavanaugh Cartoon Ever?

John Hindraker, at Powerline Blog, brilliantly explains the real reason Democrats are so hell-bent on completely destroying Brett Kavanaugh:
Brett Kavanaugh enjoys one of the most spotless reputations of anyone in American public life.
He has been enthusiastically endorsed by those who have known him all his life–by girls he knew in high school and college, by judges he has served with, by professors and students and Harvard and Yale law schools, by judges who have worked with him, by his judicial clerks–most of whom have been women–by the American Bar Association, by sitting Supreme Court justices.
In short, everyone who has ever known or dealt with Brett Kavanaugh endorses him.
I think that Judge Kavanaugh’s pristine reputation is one reason why the Democrats have unleashed against him a smear campaign unparalleled in American history.
