For A Lot Of Muslim Republicans, Their Party's Over

Muslim voters in the GOP are wondering how, or whether, to cast ballots at a time of anti-Muslim rhetoric from politicians in their own party.
Anwar Khalifa is about as Texan as you can get. He speaks in a sharp twang and cruises around in a Chevy truck with real longhorns mounted on the front. He never skips “worship day,” he taught his three daughters to shoot, and, most important for his standing in Tyler society, the 57-year-old is a lifelong Republican.

Officially Sanctioned Fraud at Dachau

Each year many thousands of tourists visit the site of the notorious Dachau concentration camp in southern Germany, not far from Munich. They see the crematory, the memorial shrines, and the museum. And in recent years, as an almost daily fixture, they see Martin Zaidenstadt. This elderly Jewish man lectures visitors to Dachau on his experiences as a wartime prisoner there. He is particularly passionate about the horrors of the camp's gas chamber where, he explains, many prisoners were put to death with poison gas ... His story of Dachau internment is a fraud. He probably never visited the camp until the 1990s, says Ryback, and his tales of gas chamber killings are untrue.

Man convicted of assault and battery against white supremacist leader learns his fate: A $1 fine (2 Pics)

A man who was convicted of assault and battery against “Unite the Right” leader Jason Kessler — a white supremacist — learned his fate in court Tuesday: a $1 fine, the Daily Progress of Charlottesville, Virginia, reported.
Jeffrey Winder was charged with assault and battery after Kessler was chased from his Charlottesville news conference on Aug. 13, 2017, the paper said. At the news event in front of city hall, Kessler blamed police for violence at his failed Unite the Right — during which 32 year-old counterprotester Heather Heyer was killed — the previous day, the Daily Progress noted.
Kessler was then mobbed by angry onlookers, and prosecutors said Winder could be seen on video punching Kessler, the paper reported.

Former NFL player, youth coach reportedly goes on expletive-laden rant against 11-year-old

Charlie Rogers, a former NFL player and current youth football coach in New Jersey, is under scrutiny after reportedly launching a profane voicemail rant about an 11-year-old child and football.
What are the details?
According to the Asbury Park Press, Rogers — who used to play for the Buffalo Bills, among other teams in the NFL — left a voicemail for Chris Schuster, the parent of the 11-year-old boy on a rival team.
The message was reportedly a threat to send opposing players after the 11-year-old child in an upcoming football game. Rogers is a coach in the American Youth Football Organization in Matawan, New Jersey, as well as the offensive coordinator at St. John Vianney High School.
The outlet obtained a 44-second voicemail rife with expletives and threats that Rogers reportedly left on Aug. 25. Rogers allegedly targeted Schuster’s son, who previously played for Matawan AYF and left to play for the Saint Bart’s Buffalos.

Bullied student with mental disabilities, paralyzed arm fights back — and gets suspended, mom says (2 Pics)

Cameron Kenney said he suffered a concussion after the attack Friday afternoon near Florin High School in Sacramento, California, the station reported. His mother, Elisha McDonald, said the Elk Grove Unified School District showed her a video of the incident, which showed Cameron fighting back in self-defense, KXTV said.
And apparently that was part of the problem.

He Was a Prominent Holocaust Survivor. But His Story Was a Hoax.

"The Impostor," a work of nonfiction, is the history of an ugly and wildly successful lie. For three decades, Enric Marco, a Catalan mechanic, was a prominent public face of Spanish survivors of the Holocaust - president of a survivors' association, the recipient of a number of awards and distinctions. He spoke at Parliament and frequently visited schools, well into his 80s, to tearfully recall his time at the Flossenbürg concentration camp; the torture and killings he witnessed; his eight months of solitary confinement. In 2005, the story was revealed to be a hoax ... Cercas was appropriately scandalized, calling Marco "this shameless con artist, this out-and-out liar, this utter scoundrel."

A Murder Is Announced? US narrative on Idlib resembles Agatha Christie novel, Russia’s UN envoy says

US and its allies’ speculation that the Syrian government is going to use chemical weapons in Idlib resembles Agatha Christie’s novel, where the crime scene is publicly announced in advance, Moscow's UN envoy believes.

“The alleged intention of the Syrian government to use poisonous substances in Idlib is presented as a fait accompli,” Russian representative at the UN, Vassily Nebenzia, said during a UN Security Council meeting on Thursday. The diplomat was referring to repeated US and its allies’ warnings about what they believe are Damascus’ preparations to unleash a chemical attack. However, the exact proof to back up the claims has been kept in the dark.

“Agatha Christie's ‘A Murder is Announced’ novel comes to mind, when the impendending crime was reported in a newspaper, including is time and place,” Nebenzia went on.

Bayer beware: US lawyers claim to have ‘explosive’ documents about Monsanto's activity in Europe

Bayer-owned agrochemical giant Monsanto, which has recently been ordered to pay a groundskeeper $289 million in damages over Roundup’s alleged cancer link, may be facing many more legal fights soon.

Lawyers involved in the California lawsuit against the firm claim they have revealing documents about Monsanto and its affairs in Europe.

“What we have is the tip of the iceberg. And in fact we have documents now in our possession, several hundreds of documents, that have not been declassified and some of those are explosive,” US lawyer Robert Jr. Kennedy was cited as saying by Euronews.

According to Kennedy, many of those documents “are pertinent to what Monsanto did here in Europe. And that's just the beginning."

The number of lawsuits against Monsanto has surged from 5,200 to 8,000 since the California court’s $289-million verdict.

Skripals – The Mystery Deepens

This BBC report gives a very useful timeline summary of events.

At 09.15 on Sunday 4 March the Skripals’ car was seen on CCTV driving through three different locations in Salisbury. Both Skripals had switched off their mobile phones and they remained off for over four hours, which has baffled geo-location.

There is no CCTV footage that indicates the Skripals returning to their home. It has therefore always been assumed that they last touched the door handle around 9am.

But the Metropolitan Police state that Boshirov and Petrov did not arrive in Salisbury until 11.48 on the day of the poisoning. That means that they could not have applied a nerve agent to the Skripals’ doorknob before noon at the earliest.

Sep 06 11:20

The Impossible Photo

These CCTV images released by Scotland yard today allegedly show Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov both occupying exactly the same space at Gatwick airport at precisely the same second. 16.22.43 on 2 March 2018. Note neither photo shows the other following less than a second behind.

There is no physically possible explanation for this. You can see ten yards behind each of them, and neither has anybody behind for at least ten yards. Yet they were both photographed in the same spot at the same second.

The only possible explanations are:
1) One of the two is travelling faster than Usain Bolt can sprint
2) Scotland Yard has issued doctored CCTV images/timeline.

UK accusation of Russians in Skripal case ‘cocktail of lies’ timed with Idlib false flag op – Moscow

He said the British site itself stated that the two suspects most likely used aliases when entering Britain, which begs the question why they were called Russian nationals, yet alone agents of the Russian government. The British authorities, he added, refused to hand over to Russia the information they have on the suspects, including their fingerprints, which they must have provided to get a visa. The fingerprints, obviously, would have made identifying those individuals much easier, Nebenzya said, adding that apparently London is not interested in finding out who the suspects are.

...

Nebenzya said there were several apparent inconsistencies in the narrative of the British side. For instance, he said, the suspects were spotted on CCTV footage on March 4 at midday while the Skripals reportedly left home in the early morning.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is, in my viewpoint, "the other shoe" which is about to fall, and we have to wonder; just how are the US and Turkey going to respond to the next military pounding of Idlib by Syrian, Russian, and Iranian military, go in and invade?!?

OBAMA THREATENS TO CANCEL TAXPAYER-FUNDED SPEECH IN DENMARK IF HIS CONTRACT IS RELEASED TO THE PUBLIC

Representatives for Barack Obama have threatened to cancel the former president’s upcoming paid speech at a Denmark university if details of his speaking contract are released to the public.

Obama will participate in a moderated question and answer session on Sept. 28 at the University of Southern Denmark before local business leaders, university students and local dignitaries, according to Business Kolding, the event’s organizer.

But the event has already sparked criticism from citizens of Denmark’s Kolding Municipality, which is providing 750,000 kroner, or $117,000, in taxpayer funds to support the behind-closed-doors event titled “A Conversation with President Barack Obama.”

Hole in Soyuz MS-09’s hull was drilled when it was fully assembled, says industry source

Roscosmos’ commission is analyzing all possible reasons of the accident, including the one that the damage was done already after docking to the ISS

A hole in the hull of the Russian Soyuz MS-09 spacecraft was drilled when the spaceship was fully assembled, a source in the space industry told TASS on Thursday.

"The hole was drilled when the spaceship was already assembled," he said, adding that the spacecraft's manufacturer, the Energia Rocket and Space Corporation had decided to check all manned Soyuz and cargo Progress spaceships, both those that are being assembled and those sent to the Baikonur space center.

"It is applicable to the Soyuz MS-10 and Soyuz MS-11 manned spaceships that are to be launched to the International Space Station (ISS) in October and December, respectively. The Progress MS-10 cargo spacecraft that is to be launched in October will also be checked," the source said.

President Trump May Declassify the 20 FISA Docs Congress Wants

President Trump is expected to declassify the redacted 20 pages of documents from the controversial Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant that have still not been made public, which allowed the FBI to spy on short-term campaign volunteer Carter Page, numerous sources told SaraACarter.com. This comes after nearly a year of stonewalling by the Department of Justice at the demand of lawmakers, who claim that the 20 redacted pages will reveal explosive information about the FBI’s handling of the Trump-Russia investigation, according to sources.

However, President Trump, who has been under pressure from some DOJ officials not to release the classified documents, “could always change his mind and it’s not a guarantee that it will happen, but the indications are that it more than likely will possibly be before the end of this week,” said a U.S. official, who spoke on condition of anonymity due to the sensitive nature of the subject.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF these documents are released, they will most likely document that the FBI lied to get the FISA warrant.

And IF in fact that is true, it presents a very thoroughly ugly picture of the current state of the politicization of the FBI.

A YEAR AFTER CALLING IDLIB “AL QAEDA'S LARGEST SAFE HAVEN SINCE 9/11,” THE US GOVT IS TRYING TO SAVE IT

As the Syrian government and its allies prepare to begin a military offensive against the last rebel-held province in the country, top U.S. government officials and even U.S. President Donald Trump have recently urged Syria to refrain from “recklessly” attacking the Idlib province, warning that it could result in a high civilian death toll. These recent statements of U.S. government officials have sought to portray Idlib as chiefly populated by civilians and benign opposition “rebels.”

Yet, just last year, one of the U.S. government’s top counterterrorism officials involved in the country’s Syria and Iraq policy stated on video that, in contrast to current government statements, Idlib is dominated by none other than the Al Qaeda terrorist group and that the province should be a major focus of U.S. counterterrorism policy given the threat that Idlib represents to global efforts to fight terrorism.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation: the US government doesn't want the combined forces of Russia, Syria, and Iran, to gut Idlib of terrorists, because it is the US government which is funding, arming, and supporting those terrorists as a "base" from which the US can reach out, and destroy more of Syria, even when time and logic have proved this a thankless task in all the years in which Syria has been at war, a war essentially designed and operated by US-funded interests.

The way the term "chemical attack" is being bandied about by our UN Ambassador, Nikki Haley, is a clear telegraphing of what US interests, most probably the White Helmets, and their ilk are going to do so, by creating such a false image of a chemical attack, most probably against children, staged as the "justification" for US troops going into Syria to attack it.

44 PERCENT OF AMERICANS 18-27 HAVE DELETED THE FACEBOOK APP THIS YEAR, POLL FINDS

Many Americans have responded to Facebook’s ongoing privacy and disinformation controversies by reducing their usage of the social media platform. Others have responded by deleting the Facebook app entirely, a new study insists.

According to a new study by the Pew Research Center, 54 percent of Facebook users ages 18 and older have adjusted their privacy settings in the wake of revelations that Facebook repeatedly failed to protect consumer data as it was shared and abused by a myriad of Facebook partners, including political analytics firm Cambridge Analytica.

The study also notes that around 42 percent of Facebook users have chosen to take a break from the social platform of several weeks or more, with a quarter of users choosing to delete the Facebook app from their phones entirely in the last year.

AMAZON IS FAR MORE DANGEROUS AND POWERFUL THAN YOU WANT TO ADMIT

The sneaky thing about Amazon’s increased dominance in so many key aspects of our lives is that much of the perniciousness is hidden. No one’s going to tell you about all the retailers who have gotten pressured or destroyed via its tactics while you’re happily clicking “add to cart” and smiling about 2-day free shipping. In this sense, it can be best compared to the evils of factory farming. Most people just simply have no idea about the immense damage going on behind the scenes as they indulge in incredible convenience and what looks like a good deal.

Today’s post should be seen as an update to last year’s article referenced above. In the months that have followed, I’ve been consistently frustrated by the lack of interest when it comes to the dangers presented by Amazon and its richest man in the world ($165 billion as of last count) CEO Jeff Bezos. The following Twitter exchange is a good example of what I mean:

Wealthy Americans have stepped up investment in New Zealand. Parliament votes to ban foreigners from buying bolt-hole homes.

Years of doomsday talk at Silicon Valley dinner parties has turned to action.

In recent months, two 150-ton survival bunkers journeyed by land and sea from a Texas warehouse to the shores of New Zealand, where they’re buried 11 feet underground.

Seven Silicon Valley entrepreneurs have purchased bunkers from Rising S Co. and planted them in New Zealand in the past two years, said Gary Lynch, the manufacturer’s general manager. At the first sign of an apocalypse — nuclear war, a killer germ, a French Revolution-style uprising targeting the 1 percent — the Californians plan to hop on a private jet and hunker down, he said.

“New Zealand is an enemy of no one,” Lynch said in an interview from his office in Murchison, Texas, southeast of Dallas. “It’s not a nuclear target. It’s not a target for war. It’s a place where people seek refuge.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The problem here, is that it's a 12 to 15 hour flight from San Francisco to New Zealand; these folks are going to have to see, in their "crystal balls" far ahead of any major war, in order to get out ahead of the coming catastrophe.

I frankly do not believe, if a major military confrontation starts to break out, that they will have that 12 to 15 hour luxury of actually getting there to New Zealand in time.

EU ENTERS “FINAL STAGE” OF CRAFTING BILL FORCING BIG TECH CENSORSHIP

The European Union is in the final stages of crafting legislation that will force big tech and internet companies to censor “extremist” content and cooperate with law enforcement, Reuters reports.

The bill is expected to be released by the end of the month and will absolutely require companies such as Google, Facebook, and Twitter to swiftly remove any content considered terroristic from their platforms.

In March, the European Commission told such companies that they had three months to show they were removing “extremist” content more rapidly or face legislation forcing them to do so.

EU recommendations were sent out at the time regarding the speedy removal of all content including terrorist content, incitement to hatred and violence, child sexual abuse material, counterfeit products, and copyright infringement.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What concerns me, in this draconian move, is the proclivity for going after sites (like this one) which are fact centric, even though those facts may not be to the EU's liking.
