FBI agents conducted a predawn raid of Paul Manafort’s home

In other words,this raid was done to bully the target and his family. Appointing Jeff Sessions was Trump's biggest mistake and probably a fatal one!

The significance of the records seized from the home isn’t clear, according to the Post. But most of the documents were already in the hands of Congress, which means the raid may have been to send a message to Manafort that he should not expect any courtesies from special counsel Robert Mueller’s team. “If the FBI wanted the documents, they could just ask [Manafort] and he would have turned them over,” an adviser close to the White House told the Post.

“Where is Trump?” Sheriff Arpaio Asks

Trump could have ended this as well as the Bundy case. He is extremely weak.

Sheriff Arpaio points finger at Obama holdovers in DOJ.
WASHINGTON, D.C. – After being convicted of criminal misdemeanor contempt, former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio has come out swinging, arguing the judge was biased and asking why President Trump is abandoning him, considering Arpaio was an early campaign supporter whose conviction reflects the determination to enforce immigration laws the Trump Justice Department is now exhibiting.

“Where is President Trump on this case?” Arpaio asked Infowars.com in an exclusive interview. “This is a witch hunt against me that is being carried forward by Obama holdovers in Attorney General Sessions’ Department of Justice.”

US Sanctions — a Looney Tunes Bad Remake

By F. William Engdahl
5 Aug 2017

The ever-so-wise members of the Congress of the United States have just passed one of the most bizarre pieces of legislation in US history. Unilaterally, it makes illegal and severely punishable investments by European companies in international energy projects where Russia is involved. But it does far more. Unlike earlier US sanctions acts, the EU countries were not even consulted on the new act. It may well be that the bill, HR-3364: Countering Americas Adversaries Through Sanctions Act (sic) and its Senate counterpart will mark the irreversible decline of the United States as a global power and forge new ties between Russia, China, Iran and, yes, the major states of the EU including Germany .

What the Act says
That's All Folks!

North Korea May Be In Possession Of A Miniature Nuclear Warhead, Japan Warns

One day after Kim Jong Un's regime balked at this weekend's UN sanctions, promising retaliation and threatening to attack the US with a nuclear weapon, Japan's government has released a new 500-page report in which it warns that the threat from North Korean nuclear weapons has reached a “new stage” and that Pyongyang’s weapons program had “advanced considerably,” to the point where it was possible that the regime had acquired the ability to miniaturize nuclear warheads.

The white paper, approved by Japan’s cabinet on Tuesday morning, was published less than two weeks after North Korea test-fired its second ICBM, which US experts have said may be able to reach most of the continental United States.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Where, in its almost pathological absence of logic, did the Wa-Compost make the leap from "where it was possible that the regime had acquired the ability to miniaturize nuclear warheads.", as stated by the Japanese government's report, to "North Korea has miniaturized nuclear weapons", being regurgitated endlessly for over an hour on the Faux news feed, with no commercials to break up the "fear factor" this coverage was supposed to implant in the hearts and guts of the people watching ?!?

Folks, something wicked this way comes, and I must, unfortunately, inform you that it feels like we are very close to a US-engineered false flag, to be blamed on North Korea, as the justification for attacking it.

Kim Jong Un is many things; but crazy and suicidal are probably not among them. He is consistent in his anti-US rhetoric, and is developing weapons as a deterrent to keep his government from getting regime changed, and losing his power.

Norfolk rapper shot to death at motel, causing fears of gang war

A prominent Norfolk rapper was shot dead this morning at a motel on Military Highway, family members said, sparking fears that a gang war may explode.

Anthony M. Sinclair of the 1400 block of Church St. was killed at the Days Inn in the 1400 block of N. Military Hwy. around 1 a.m., Norfolk police said in a news release. They wouldn’t release his name, but family members confirmed Sinclair was killed.

He died at the scene, police said.

“This will ignite a small war,” activist Michael Muhammad said in a text. “Norfolk is not safe.”

Netanyahu in the Dock? Bribery, Fraud and Breach of Trust

He’s been investigated for over a year for alleged bribery, fraud, and breach of trust, including for accepting about $1.1 million from accused French fraudster Arnaud Mimran in 2009.

His chief of staff and close confident for years, Ari Harow, signed an agreement to turn state’s witness against him. As the saying goes, he knows where the bodies are buried.

A gag order in place until September 17 prevents information about the case from coming out.

Netanyahu’s trusted colleague may become his worst enemy to save himself from harsher punishment, including possible imprisonment.

According to former Netanyahu communications director Yoaz Hendel,

Harow “sat on the seam between the political and the personal, between the family of Netanyahu and the nation, between the bureau and the home. On these seams, all the gray episodes happened.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Politically, with Harow turning Israeli state's evidence against him, Netanyahu is a wounded animal; and nothing is more dangerous than a wounded animal, fearing for its life.

He may, in fact, start World War III in order to proclaim martial law, and prevent his prosecution from moving forward, if the Israeli State Prosecutor's facts are correct.

The Strange Case of Imran Awan

The Imran Awan case is certainly of considerable interest not only for what the investigation eventually turns up but also for what it reveals about how things work in Congress. One might well ask how foreign-born IT specialists are selected and vetted prior to being significantly overpaid and allowed to work on computers in congressional offices. And the ability of those same individuals to keep working even after the relevant congressmen have been warned that their employee was under investigation has to be explained beyond Wasserman-Schultz’s comment that Awan had not committed any crime. And how does “bankrupt” Imran Awan wind up with a high-priced lawyer to defend him who is associated with the Clintons? Finally, there are the lingering concerns about the unfortunately well-established Russiagate narrative.

Israel Faces Backlash Over Threat to Shut Down al-Jazeera

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has backed the call by his Communications Minister Ayoub Kara to ban al-Jazeera from the country, including forbidding all of its reporters from operating within Israel or occupied Palestine.

That’s not sitting well with a lot of people, unsurprisingly. Free press organizations are unsurprisingly critical of the move, seeing it as driven primarily by the Israeli government’s cynical interest in distracting the public from ongoing controversies surrounding al-Aqsa mosque, the Jordan embassy, and Netanyahu’s corruption probe.

Al-Jazeera, for its part, has threatened legal action over the potential move, saying that Kara’s allegations of al-Jazeera’s “incitement” were unsubstantiated, and that Israeli officials hadn’t even attempted to provide any sort of evidence to justify a move against them.

China Preparing ‘Small’ Military Operation to Expel Indian Troops

Chinese state media is quoting officials familiar with the situation as saying the nation is preparing for a “small-scale military operation” aimed at expelling Indian troops from the Doklam region, after a protracted stand-off in the area.

China was trying to build a road in the Doklam region when Indian ground troops crossed the border to stop them. Indian forces have remained there, albeit in small numbers, ever since. India does not claim the land belongs to them, but claims that Bhutan believes it belongs to them, and that an old treaty with Bhutan obliges them to back the claim.

The territory is sparsely inhabited, and of little value to either. Still, Chinese officials warn that the row with India could have a long-term impact on their relationship, whether or not the dispute results in any sort of military exchange.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

China may want a "small" military action to send Indian troops packing, but may well not be able to foresee just how India is going to respond, militarily.

Added to this uncertainty, is the reality that the US and India have enhanced their mutual defense cooperation under President Obama last year:

Obama signs into law bill declaring India a ‘major defence partner’

The US, India, China, and Russia need to move, purposefully and quickly, in such a way as to defuse the current situation; otherwise, this could lead to a regional, if not global, war.

America’s ISIS War Enters Fourth Year: War Is Expected to Leave US Troops in Iraq Permanently

On August 8 of 2014, a pair of US jets launched their first airstrikes against ISIS targets near the Iraqi Kurdish capital of Irbil. This marked the beginning of a protracted air war which continues to this day, along with an accompanying ground war which, despite pledges of “no boots on the ground,” quickly grew to many thousands of US troops.

The fourth year finds ISIS-held territory shrinking substantially, with the group’s territory in Iraq all but lost, and both the Kurdish YPG and the Syrian government pushing them back in Syria, with an ongoing offensive in the ISIS capital of Raqqa.

Yet while Pentagon officials are keen to brag about their accomplishments in the war, mostly centering around having killed massive numbers of people, they are also quick to dismiss the idea that the war is anywhere near over, or that even if it was “won” is some shape or form it would mean US troops coming home.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This permanent US deployment in Iraq will insure that the US controls the Iraqi government, the oil, and the currency in which that oil wil be sold (translation: only in US dollars).

And it is very interesting, and almost ironic, to notice; just when the Philippine's Duterte was waging his war against drug dealers, what happens?!?

All of a sudden he has ISIS with which to contend!!

Accidental?!? I think not.

Lavrov Holding Talks With N. Korean Foreign Minister in Manila

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov is holding talks with North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong-ho on Monday on the sidelines of the 50th ASEAN Foreign Ministers’ Meeting (AMM) and Related Meetings in Manila.

Lavrov arrived in the Philippines on Sunday to participate in the events within ASEAN. The minister has already held a number of bilateral meetings including with the foreign ministers of Turkey, China and the United States.
Earlier in the day, the North Korean foreign minister held a meeting with his Chinese counterpart.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am watching the Faux feed, and it is going droning and on about the WaPustule claiming that North Korea has already produced a nuclear warhead which can fit inside missiles, with no commercial interruptions after about 20 minutes that I have been able to see.

I frankly think that Americans, and potentially the rest of the world, are being set up by such "reporting" (if one can ascribe it as such) for an industrial strength false flag happening, to be blamed on North Korea, and off we go....

Military can destroy drones over domestic U.S. bases: Pentagon

The Pentagon has given more than 130 U.S. military bases across the United States the green light to shoot down private and commercial drones that could endanger aviation safety or pose other threats.

The number of uncrewed aircraft in U.S. skies has zoomed in recent years and continues to increase rapidly - along with concern among U.S. and private-sector officials that dangerous or even hostile drones could get too close to places like military bases, airports and sports stadiums.

While the specific actions that the U.S. military can take against drones are classified, they include destroying or seizing private and commercial drones that pose a threat, Pentagon spokesman Navy Captain Jeff Davis told reporters on Monday.

The classified guidelines were distributed early last month. The Pentagon sent out unclassified guidance on how to communicate the policy to communities on Friday.

Sessions Humiliates Rahm: "No Amount Of Federal Funds Will Help A City That Refuses To Help Its Own Residents"

All the latest moves coming from Jeff Sessions would seem to imply that the beleaguered Attorney General has every intent of aggressively pushing forward with Trump's agenda in order to mend broken fences with the White House and try to keep his job. The latest such move comes in the form of the following rather direct official statement from Sessions in response to Chicago's lawsuit filed earlier this morning regarding federal funding, or lack thereof rather, for sanctuary cities.

Among other things, Sessions scolded Chicago's Mayor, Rahm Emanuel, saying that "no amount of federal taxpayer dollars will help a city that refuses to help its own residents." Meanwhile, Sessions also took direct aim at Chicago's soaring violent crime rate pointing out, as we have on many occasions, that the city recorded more murders in 2016 than New York and L.A. combined.

“No amount of federal taxpayer dollars will help a city that refuses to help its own residents."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Sessions was absolutely correct in reading Chicago's mayor, Mayor, Rahm Emanuel, the riot act, on this issue.

Silencing ALL opposition voices: Inside The Media Matters Playbook

Even to casual observers, it has been obvious for months that the left is orchestrating a tightly-coordinated campaign to undermine and delegitimize the current presidential administration.
As an extension of the decades-long campaign to wrestle the narrative away from conservatives, independents and centrists, they’re smearing right-leaning commentators with anything they can find. In the take-down of Bill O’Reilly and Monica Crowley and attempted hit on Sean Hannity, for example, it’s more than evident.

And just this week, the suspension of Fox’s Eric Bolling provides even more proof.

We now know how the left is running this non-stop smear campaign and who is pulling the puppet strings.

We now have the Media Matters Playbook.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why am I not surprised here?!?

But this time, the "Sorosians" and Clintonistas have the independent media with which to contend, and we will not be silenced!!

US CREDIT CARD DEBT SURPASSES FINANCIAL CRISIS RECORD, AS STUDENT AND AUTO LOANS HIT NEW ALL TIME HIGH

Who would have expected that today's otherwise boring monthly consumer credit report would be the day's most exciting event. Well, moments ago the monthly update from the Federal Reserve confirmed that as of the end of June, total revolving (i.e. credit card) credit rose to $1,021.7 billion, an increase of $4.1 billion on the month, and a new all time high, taking out the previous record high set during the summer of 2008.

... means that total consumer credit in June increased by $12.4 billion, slightly less than the $13.9 billion expected and modestly less than the $18.4 billion increase in May, to $3,855.8 billion, also a record high.

Taking a closer look at the quarterly update in non-revolving debt, we find that for another consecutive quarter, both student and auto loans hit record highs, of $1.450 trillion and $1.131 trillion respectively, although there does appears to be a modest slowdown in credit issuance for these two largest categories.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In the immortal words of Casey Stengel, this feels like "deja vu all over again."

HOMESCHOOLED STUDENTS STILL FACE BIAS IN COLLEGE ADMISSIONS, EVEN WHEN THEY MEET REQUIREMENTS

Even as many colleges have taken to recruiting homeschooled students because they tend to outperform their public-school counterparts, homeschoolers still face discrimination in postsecondary education.

As evidenced by a recent case handled by the Home School Legal Defense Association, cosmetology schools are a surprising locus of bias against the homeschooled clients of the association’s attorneys.

It’s a sweeping change from HSLDA’s work during the Clinton administration, when colleges of all kinds routinely denied admission to applicants whose parents personally instructed their education, staff attorney Darren Jones told The College Fix in a phone interview.

Yet even as the frequency and severity of cases has subsided, one enormous university system has stubbornly resisted the trend of colleges treating homeschool students on an equal footing.

Three years of college, ignored

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is completely insane, and must be fixed, state by state, because the Federal Government doesn't want this bias against home-schooled students fixed.

The Federal Government wants "manageable" students, hooked on SSRIS and God only knows what ever other kinds of prescription drugs,who will never fully understand the lessons of history; understand logic; and never use critical thinking to attempt to evaluate and repair what is going wrong in this country.

Google fires author of memo criticizing company’s diversity program

Google has reportedly fired the author of an internal memo criticizing the company’s diversity program, prompting conservative commentators to say the author’s criticisms about liberal intolerance stand thus proven.

James Damore, the author of a 10-page memo titled “Google’s Ideological Echo Chamber,” told Bloomberg News of his firing in an email Monday evening.
According to Bloomberg, Mr. Damore, a software engineer, said he had been fired for “perpetuating gender stereotypes.”

Although the company had no immediate comment, Google’s Chief Executive Officer Sundar Pichai implied similarly earlier in the day, sending a note to employees saying the memo “violate[s] our Code of Conduct and cross[es] the line by advancing harmful gender stereotypes.”

Danielle Brown, whom Google recently added as a diversity chief, also condemned the memo Monday, saying the company is “unequivocal in our belief that diversity and inclusion are critical to our success.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This will be seen as a completely vindictive act by Google against someone who has the audacity to express a difference of opinion from Google's "official party line."
