FBI Files Document Communism in Valerie Jarrett’s Family

Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) files obtained by Judicial Watch reveal that the dad, maternal grandpa and father-in-law of President Obama’s trusted senior advisor, Valerie Jarrett, were hardcore Communists under investigation by the U.S. government.

Jarrett’s dad, pathologist and geneticist Dr. James Bowman, had extensive ties to Communist associations and individuals, his lengthy FBI file shows.

Valerie Jarrett’s Communist Ties Confirmed by Judicial Watch

On Monday, Judicial Watch (JW), a conservative government watchdog group, released its findings that President Obama’s closest advisor, Valerie Jarrett, has had close ties to Communists for decades. Thanks to files released to JW by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Jarrett’s father, grandfather, and father-in-law all “had extensive ties to Communist associations and individuals.”

Jarrett’s father, Dr. James Bowman, worked closely with a paid Soviet agent named Alfred Stern, who fled the country after being charged with espionage.

Ambien maker to Roseanne: “racism is not a known side effect” of our drug

Like all medications, the popular sleep aid does indeed often incur side effects: More than 10 percent of people who take the drug experience headaches, dizziness, and drowsiness. Diarrhea, nausea, and allergic reactions are also pretty common.

Much more rarely — in between 1 and 4 percent of users — Ambien has been associated with odd behavioral and psychiatric side effects, including hallucinations, disorientation, and disinhibition.

Fewer than 1 percent of Ambien users have also reported experiencing abnormal thinking, delusions, and aggressive behavior while on the drug, according to UpToDate, the physician’s guide to medical evidence. Other sedative and hypnotic drugs can also cause these reactions, and some Ambien-induced odd behaviors — eating buttered cigarettes, sleep driving, playing online poker — are pretty scary, as Forbes’ Matthew Herper pointed out.

Nerve agent

Nerve agents and antidepressants have something in common!

Nerve agents, sometimes also called nerve gases, are a class of organic chemicals that disrupt the mechanisms by which nerves transfer messages to organs. The disruption is caused by the blocking of acetylcholinesterase, an enzyme that catalyzes the breakdown of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter.

Poisoning by a nerve agent leads to constriction of pupils, profuse salivation, convulsions, and involuntary urination and defecation, with the first symptoms appearing in seconds after exposure. Death by asphyxiation or cardiac arrest may follow in minutes due to the loss of the body's control over respiratory and other muscles.

Tom Friedman has advice for Palestinians: Embrace Zionism

Take, for example, Thomas Friedman’s May 23, 2018, opinion piece in The New York Times, “Hamas, Netanyahu and Mother Nature.” Friedman’s critique–which shakes its finger at the Palestinians who have screwed up again–is yet another liberal Zionist apology for Israel’s recent massacre of 62 people at the Gaza border. “If Hamas had chosen to recognize Israel and build a Palestinian state in Gaza modeled on Singapore,” Friedman writes, “the world would have showered it with aid and it would have served as a positive test case for the West Bank.” Using an “If-X-then-Y” equation, Friedman knows what’s best for what ails Palestinians. If they just behaved better, he declares, Israel’s treatment of them would improve.

Ireland votes by landslide to legalise abortion

Ireland has voted by a landslide to legalise abortion in a stunning outcome that marks a dramatic defeat for the Catholic church’s one-time domination of the Republic.

The Irish electorate voted by 1,429,981 votes to 723,632 in favour of abolishing a controversial constitutional amendment that gave equal legal status to the lives of a foetus and the woman carrying it. The result was a two-thirds majority: 66.4% yes to 33.6% no.

By voting yes in unexpectedly large numbers to abolish the eighth amendment to the Irish constitution, the country has enabled the government in Dublin to introduce abortion in Ireland’s health service up to 12 weeks into pregnancy.

Fourth Amendment Victory: 8-1 Supreme Court Rules Police Need a Warrant to Search Vehicle on Private Property, Refuses to Extend Automobile Exception

Refusing to grant law enforcement yet another loophole to encroach on the rights of citizens to privacy in their homes, the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that police may not intrude on private property in order to carry out a warrantless search of a vehicle parked near a residence. In its 8-1 decision in Collins v. Virginia, the Court rejected Virginia’s claim that warrantless police searches of vehicles are allowed under the Fourth Amendment’s “automobile exception” regardless of where the vehicle is located. Under the “automobile exception,” police have greater leeway to search vehicles on public streets without a warrant.

Poland offers $2bn for permanent US base, Moscow warns of ‘dangerous’ consequences

Poland is reportedly willing to pay $2bn for permanent presence of US troops in the country. Moscow called the initiative “dangerous”, saying it won’t benefit European security.
The document dubbed ‘Proposal for a US Permanent Presence in Poland’ by the country’s Defense Ministry was leaked online by local media and Politico Europe group at the weekend.

The 39-page document discusses how “extraordinarily strong” Poland-US relations throughout history have been: how Polish people were “remarkably pro-Western” during the Cold war, how they fought against communism and disliked the Soviet Union.

To prove the point, the ministry draws examples of Donald Trumps’ statements, in particular his “landmark” Warsaw address, calling to confront “dire threats to our security.” “A permanent presence of a US armored division in Poland – on dedicated US military installations – will help achieve that goal [set by Trump],” the document read.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why Poland, that is ridiculous; I mean, to imagine that the US could actually build a military base in Poland for only a measly two billion dollars, that is!!

Yes, Poland threw off its Communist yolk years ago; but Russia today is not the old Soviet Union; it has reinvented itself in a modern, progressive way, and there is no threat that Putin would even begin to, or want to, annex Poland.

I think this knee-jerk gesture, on the part of the Polish government, is not seeing Russia for what it has become, but seeing it through the lens of its past activities, and its Soviet history, in the 20th century.

Reality Check: Hollywood Actress Charged with Sex Trafficking for Cult

Another shocking story of sex trafficking in the United States, this time involving a Hollywood actress arrested on charges of recruiting women to become sex slaves for a cult.

The cult, operating as “self-help” business NXIVM, was flagged as “expensive brainwashing” as far back as 2003. But the organization is much more than that, with connections to both Hollywood and political elite.
This is a Reality Check you won’t get anywhere else.

Allison Mack, known for her role as “Chloe” in the TV series Smallville, was arrested on April 20 as part of an indictment charging her and a man named Keith Raniere for sex trafficking and forced labor.

Mack allegedly recruited women to join a female empowerment group, one of many programs under Raniere’s multi-level marketing business, NXIVM.

But according to U.S. Attorney Richard Donoghue, instead of being empowered, these women were “exploited, both sexually and for their labor.”

Fake News: Top Liberals Blame Trump for ‘Awful’ Photos of Obama’s Migrant Detention Centers

Democratic politicians, journalists, and top staffers in Barack Obama’s White House whipped themselves into a frenzy Sunday, attributing “disturbing” photos of migrant detention centers to President Donald Trump — before discovering the photos were taken during Obama’s second term as president.
The first wave of viral photos, showing immigrant minors sleeping inside enclosed cages, were featured in an AZCentral.com article — but that didn’t stop far-left activists from decrying the photos.

Obama speechwriter Jon Favreau urged followers to “look at these pictures,” adding that the forcing the Trump administration to return the children to their parents was the “only debate that matters” right now.

Farveau, who later deleted the tweet, admitted to sharing photos taken under his former boss’s watch — but still found a way to shift blame onto the Trump administration.

ITALY - THE BEGINNING OF THE END OF THE EUROPEAN UNION - BY DEBS IS DEAD

The news out of Italy over the last two days has the potential to completely change the game as it could end in the destruction of the EU.

The original Euro Community was an admirable ideal as it emphasised the rights of all citizens of member states, guaranteeing them a range of protections from unjust and stupid demagogues. Unfortunately the neolib corporatist globalists took over the machinery and turned it over to a gang of cold-hearted technocrats who used the once estimable governance structure to enforce a draconian monetarist policy. - see Greece.

Knives are too sharp and filing them down is solution to soaring violent crime, judge says

A judge has proposed a nationwide programme to file down the points of kitchen knives as a solution to the country’s soaring knife crime epidemic.

Last week in his valedictory address, retiring Luton Crown Court Judge Nic Madge spoke of his concern that carrying a knife had become routine in some circles and called on the Government to ban the sale of large pointed kitchen knives.

Latest figures show stabbing deaths among teenagers and young adults have reached the highest level for eight years, and knife crime overall rose 22 per cent in 2017.

In the past two months, he said, there have been 77 knife-related incidents in Bedfordshire, including three killings.

Judge Madge told the assembled judges, barristers and court staff: “These offences often seem motiveless – one boy was stabbed because he had an argument a couple of years before at his junior school.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This has to be Britain's equivalent Department to the US government's "You Can't make this Stuff UP!!

Does this mean that tougher cuts of meat will now be outlawed in the UK, which have to be cooked for a long time to become tender, and must be carved with sharp knives in order to eat them?!?

NO, Judge Madge, there is a "culture war" going on in UK schools, and that is what has to be fixed, between immigrant children, and the native born Brits. Unless and until that is sorted, the knife crime will continue, unabated.

TOMMY ROBINSON: AN UNWELCOME DEVELOPMENT BEING GROOMED BY AN INCREASINGLY TOTALITARIAN STATE

In the same way – although I do see him more as a rabble-rouser than a racist fanatic – the bizarre denialism of the British Establishment in relation to the nature of Jihadist violence and cultural Islamic rape has helped build the high profile of former English Defence League leader Tommy Robinson.

In case you didn’t know, by the way, Tommy Robinson is not his real name. He was born Stephen Christopher Yaxley-Lennon, and he has also had two other aliases, Andrew McMaster and Paul Harris. His family are themselves immigrants – from Eire.

The British Left denies the dysfunctionality of Islamic culture because the vast majority of such immigrants vote Labour. The Conservative Government denies the same thing because it does not wish to lose the disgusting arms trade it has with the unspeakably cruel Saudi royal family.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have posted this because I believe, IF in fact the facts here are true, that it presents a more balanced, nuanced vision of how and why this incident happened, and why Robinson got locked away by a very dysfunctional British court system and government.

If I didn't know better, I would suggest that Prime Minister May, might have metamorphosed into the spirit of Chancellor Adam Sutler from the film "V for Vendetta"!! (And NO, thank you, I don't believe in violence as a way to resolve things!)

UK ARMS SALES TO ISRAEL HIT PEAK, AS PRINCE WILLIAM PLANS VISIT TO JERUSALEM

British defense companies made a record amount of money from selling weapons and military hardware to Israel, anti-arms campaigners’ data shows. New figures were revealed ahead of the royal trip to the country in June.
According to Campaign Against Arms Trade (CAAT), defense contractors made at least £221 million ($294 million) last year from deals with Tel Aviv. That is a significant increase compared to £86 million ($114 million) in 2016. Export licenses to Israel issued by the UK government and tracked down by CAAT cover a wide range of military equipment, ranging from missile components and explosives to body armor and weapon sights.

The news emerges just days after Prince William announced the date of his forthcoming trip to Israel and Palestine. He will arrive on June 25, and is scheduled to travel to Israel’s capital Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and Ramallah, where the Palestinian Authority is based. His tour will be the first-ever official trip of a British royal to Israel.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder; is the now three-times father Prince William going to Israel and Palestine, to get a better idea of what has been going on in this conflict, or is he shilling Tel Aviv to buy more British-made weaponry?!?

I would like to hope the reason is the former, rather than the latter, but only time will tell.

RON PAUL: AMERICA’S INCREDIBLE SHRINKING INFLUENCE

It seems the world has grown tired of neocon threats from Washington. Ironically the “communist” Chinese seem to understand better than the US that in capitalism you do not threaten your customers. While the US is threatening and sanctioning and forbidding economic relations, its adversaries overseas are busy reaping the benefits of America’s real isolationism.

I’ve often spoken of the unintended consequences of our aggressive foreign policy. For example, President Bush’s invasion of Iraq only helped Iran – our “enemy” – become more dominant in the Middle East. But it seems new consequences are emerging, and for the neocons they must be very unintended: for all of its bellicosity, threats, demands, sanctions, and even bombs, the rest of the world is increasingly simply ignoring the demands of Washington and getting on with its own business.

GENE-EDITED SUPER-CROPS TO BE GROWN IN UK FOR THE FIRST TIME

Gene-edited super-crops are to be sown in Britain in a European-first after scientists exploited a legal loophole.

The Government has quietly approved the farming of gene-edited (GE) Camelina oilseed crops as part of a trial to super-charge the plants to produce Omega 3 fish oils, one of the most popular food supplements.

The pilot was approved because, unlike genetically modified (GM) plants, the Camelina oilseed crops contain no foreign DNA. Instead, they had their genetic code altered in a way that could have happened naturally.

Scientists say gene-editing can cut the time it takes to engineer new plants from decades to months. They argue embracing the new technology is vital if Britain is to benefit from GE crops and help maintain a sustainable source of fish oils in face of depleted ocean stocks

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Instead, they had their genetic code altered in a way that could have happened naturally."

But if it DIDN'T happen naturally, how do the scientists believe it "could have"?!?

Playing with the basic building blocks of life (genetic engineering) could well result in an absolute, agricultural, and human, catastrophe here, both to the land, and to the people who ingest this oil.

Drugmakers Blamed for Blocking Generics Have Jacked Up Prices and Cost the US Billions

Makers of brand-name drugs called out by the Trump administration for potentially stalling generic competition have hiked their prices by double-digit percentages since 2012 and cost Medicare and Medicaid nearly $12 billion in 2016, a Kaiser Health News analysis has found.

As part of President Donald Trump's promise to curb high drug prices, the Food and Drug Administration posted a list of pharmaceutical companies that makers of generics allege refused to let them buy the drug samples needed to develop their products. For approval, the FDA requires so-called bioequivalence testing using samples to demonstrate that generics are the same as their branded counterparts.

The analysis shows that drug companies that may have engaged in what FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb called "shenanigans" to delay the entrance of cheaper competitors onto the market have indeed raised prices and cost taxpayers more money over time.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Corporations... and most definitely, drug manufacturers... have the morals of a dead tree stump (and I am going to get emails/texts from dead tree stumps on this one!!).

This is simply, one element of this moral decay. But the other thing, which is perfectly legal in this country, is allowing doctors to prescribe "off book" uses of drug manufacturers' products which have never been tested on a particular condition the patient has, then getting compensated by those drug companies for so doing.

It is a more common practice than you might imagine. At this point in my life, I have no qualms about asking a physician about a prescription, if it is not generic, regarding whether the doctor is getting compensated in some way for prescribing it in an "off book" manner.

‘DON’T CHOKE HIM!’: WITNESSES WATCH IN HORROR AS COPS TASER, CHOKE UNARMED MAN UNTIL HE DIES

West Melbourne, FL — Dramatic cell phone video has emerged of a police involved death this month that took place in broad daylight in front of dozens of witnesses inside a Publix grocery store.

Last Monday, Donald Edward Whitmer Jr. became unresponsive after police placed him in a choke hold and began tasering him. During the altercation, Whitmer lost consciousness and moments later he would be pronounced dead.

The incident began earlier this month at a Publix grocery store in West Melbourne. The manager of the store noticed Whitmer “acting strangely,” so he called police. The first call was at 10:40 a.m., after which Whitmer left.

Several minutes later, however, Whitmer would return and the manager would call police again. The manager told police that Whitmer seemed to be “very confused” and possibly on drugs.

“He’s questioning things but can’t come up with a coherent question,” the manager told 911 dispatchers.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Attorney General Sessions, white courtesy telephone, please!!!

Because unless and until you can prevent incidents like this from happening, courtesy of police departments around this country, you will need to understand, and statistics bear me out on this, there is no war against the police; there appears to be, however, a war against citizens by some members of the police.

There are good cops around this country, and I know because my brother, now retired, was one of those, God bless him. But ALL of America's cops have to play by the rules, and by the book, to prevent this kind of incident from happening.

US FORCES CYPRIOT BANKS TO CRACK DOWN ON ACCOUNTS OF RUSSIAN CLIENTS – REPORT

Russians keeping their cash in Cypriot banks have been caught up in a massive audit of accounts by lenders and watchdogs in the island state. The step was reportedly triggered by pressure from Washington.
Banks in Cyprus now require Russian customers to confirm earnings and tax payments, to produce bank statements for the past year, as well as estate documents, title deeds of business ownership, and a detailed description of their enterprise, according to financial writer Elena Tofanyuk, as quoted by Russian daily Business FM. Previously, Russian clientele were required to produce only a passport and utility bills.

Cypriot banks offer their Russian customers a choice: either to close their accounts or to transfer their funds to Russian Commercial Bank, a subsidiary of Russian state-run lender VTB, the reporter said, citing interviewees who have bank accounts in the country.

Webmaster's Commentary:

The regulator, which started enforcing a court ban on Telegram on April 16 after the company refused to give Russia's Federal Security Service access to private conversations, also asked Apple to no longer make the free Telegram app available for download in the country.

Also on May 28, Russian state news agency TASS reported that Roskomnadzor was working with U.S. technology giant Google to implement the ban against Telegram.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Yes, but that last bit, about "the service has been used used in the planning of terror attacks around the world" is probably true of every internet communications service in the world.

So the question which should be asked instead is, can governments around the world manage to go about their business without doing things which instigate the rage that leads to terrorist reprisals, like expropriating resources, to which they have no moral right, and deterimining who controls those resources, and in what currencies they will be sold?!?

This mindset is, primarily, the source for all reprisal terrorism, folks; it is a combination of a baroquely colonial mindset, primarily in the Western world, which believes that might makes right, and that "some countries", by some kind of 21st century "royal decree" (or, in the case of the US government, alleged "American exceptionalism") gives them the right to do this kind of thing.

The Iraq war was about controling the oil, and in what demonination it was sold; and we all know who the "winner" of that conflict was: British Petroleum, which earlier this year, won the rights for exploration and development. The Ministry of Oil has announced that BP has signed a contract to develop the Kirkuk oil fields. According to Reuters, the deal with the North Oil Company (NOC) will see BP will boost output capacity from the six fields in the Kirkuk region to more than 1 million barrels of oil

The same is true for the war in Afghanistan, to control the oil pipelines, the currency in which it is sold, and the opium; the same is true for the horrific war in Libya; the same will be true for the coming war against Iran.

The quickest way to insure that terrorism stops, is to stop mucking about in other people's countries to control their resources; it is just that simple.

But, of course, it is also logical, which is why the US government will reject it out of hand, and trumpet loudly, that it has done NOTHING to incur the wrath of local populations while it steals resources, and prices them in US dollars.

But that being said, the day of the hegemonic US dollar may well be in decline; Russia and China are dumping the dollar in their trade; Russia and Venezuela are going to Venezuela's cryptocurrency as a medium of exchange; and Iran is set to dump the dollar very soon in all of its international business transactions.

So what is the US government going to do, declare war on the entire world, because they refuse to use the US dollar?!? Sadly, the answer may well be a resounding "Yes!" on the part of US politicians who have not yet figured out that the endgame is nearly over.

BELGIUM SAYS DEADLY ATTACK IN LIEGE WAS TERRORIST ATTACK

A stabbing and shooting attack in the eastern Belgian city of Liege has left two police officers and a passer-by dead. Authorities have launched a terror investigation. Belgium remains on edge following several years of extremist Islamist activity.

A gunman stabbed and shot dead two police officers before killing a bystander in the eastern city of Liege on Tuesday, Belgian authorities said. Belgium has been on alert since suicide bombers killed thirty-two people at Brussels airport and in the subway system in 2016.

The media in Belgium reports the following:

The attack happened at around 10.30 a.m. local time (08.30UTC) near a cafe in the Boulevard d’Avroy, located in the administrative district of the city.
The attacker, who was armed with a knife, approached the two female officers from behind and stabbed them several times, before seizing one of their weapons and shooting them dead, prosecutors said.
He then shot dead a 22-year-old man in a vehicle parked nearby.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Hey, Belgium; how's that unrestricted, unvetted immigration system, chock full of rage-enabled Muslims with a strong desire to murder, for utterly no logical reason, working out for you?!?

Boy Scouts Promote Promiscuity By Demanding Condoms Be Readily Available At Jamboree

The upcoming World Scout Jamboree takes place next year, and will feature scouts from all around the world, including the Boy Scouts.

While the leaders are marketing the event as a “celebration of cultural exchange”, they’ve taken it to a whole new level of “experience”, by actually offering condoms at the event.

And the World Scout Jamboree planning crew has went even further to say these condoms must be “readily and easily accessible”, and their reasoning is so alarming, it will shock you.

LifeSite News reported:

“Billed as a “celebration of cultural exchange, mutual understanding, peace, and friendship,” the announcement promises that the gathering of thousands of young people from more than 200 countries and territories will open “a new world of life-changing experiences that will help you develop your physical, intellectual, emotional, social, and spiritual life.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Back when I was a boy scout, they sure as hell did not provide either girls or condoms!!!!!!

‘Caged migrant children’ go viral… until picture turns out taken under Obama, not Trump

Journalists, Obama’s former speechwriter and other public figures all quietly deleted their misplaced horror at images of caged migrant children in the US when they found out the picture was taken under President Obama.

CNN journalist Hadas Gold, NYT Magazine editor-in-chief Jake Silverstein, Obama’s speechwriter Jon Favreau, Women’s March co-founder Linda Sarsour and former LA Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa were all caught out by a seemingly new article that featured an image of two migrant children sleeping in a cage at an ICE detention facility.

Why thousands of AI researchers are boycotting the new Nature journal - Academics share machine-learning research freely. Taxpayers should not have to pay twice to read our findings

Budding authors face a minefield when it comes to publishing their work. For a large fee, as much as $3,000, they can make their work available to anyone who wants to read it. Or they can avoid the fee and have readers pay the publisher instead. Often it is libraries that foot this bill through expensive annual subscriptions. This is not the lot of wannabe fiction writers, it’s the business of academic publishing.

People Call On White House To Pardon Oregon Ranchers Steve & Dwight Hammond

A couple of years ago, I introduced you to the Hammon family, a rancher family out of Oregon that was targeted after the patriarch in the family and his son went to jail for doing what ranchers do, setting fires to protect property and livestock. However, in the day and age of unmitigated "terrorism" charges, once they served their sentence the federal government went after both men for more time inside their prison for profit system. Their story ultimately led to the Malheur Wildlife Refuge protest, which led to the murder of LaVoy Finicum. Now, many who have seen what took place both in the Oregon trials and the Bundy Ranch trials are calling on President Donald Trump to issue a pardon for Steve and Dwight Hammond.
According to the White House petition on behalf of Dwight and Steven Hammond by Protect The Harvest:

The Hammond case is viewed by many in the West, and indeed across the nation, as a manifest miscarriage of justice akin to double jeopardy.

IT COULD HAPPEN HERE: LATIN AMERICA AND THE U.S. BOTH HAVE AN AUTHORITARIAN PROBLEM (AND FOR THE SAME REASONS)

Retracing the rise and fall of authoritarianism across civilized society is like watching a pendulum swing back and forth. Its comings and goings have become inevitable, and essentially predictable, because we’ve never addressed the underlying cause — just its symptoms. You will hear Venezuela’s most recent presidential election described by its victor, Nicolás Maduro, as a triumph for democracy. Most world leaders tell a different story, alleging blatant corruption and election fraud. It’s an alarming but not surprising turn of events for the country and indeed for the entire continent.
