The Looming Economic Collapse: The $250 Trillion Dollar Worldwide Debt Crisis

As governments raise taxes to cope with their unending spending habits, people are increasingly being forced to supplement their own income with loans. And according to most financial experts, this debt problem is so big that it will usher in a global economic collapse of epic proportions.

Can hackers tamper with your vote? Researchers show it’s possible in nearly 30 states

Top computer researchers gave a startling presentation recently about how to intercept and switch votes on emailed ballots, but officials in the 30 or so states said the ease with which votes could be changed wouldn’t alter their plans to continue offering electronic voting in some fashion.

Alex Jones: It’s A Blatant Lie I’m Calling for Violence — It’s a Hoax!

MSM talking heads falsely claim Infowars ‘inciting violence’ against media

Alex Jones Responds To Lester Holt’s Claim That He Is Calling For Violence Again

THE EXILING OF INFOWARS FROM SOCIAL MEDIA

Jones says “Mass censorship of conservatives and libertarians is exploding. You’ve already seen this with the demonetization and ultimate purge of Infowars and other alternative media outlets by mega-corporations working in tangent to stifle competition.” He is right in that it really does seem that it is right-of-centre voices that are being purged disproportionately, the left argues that is because the right are disproportionately “haters”.

Russia Hysteria Gave us Social Media Censorship

It started with Hillary Clinton floating out the big lie, that 17 US intelligence agencies are “confident” that Russia hacked DNC servers and John Podesta email accounts, in a Kremlin plot to elect Donald Trump as President of the United States.

Fast forward two years later and witness Silicon Valley tech giants colluding in a span of 12 hours to de-platform Infowars and Alex Jones.

These are not isolated incidences. The one gave us the other.

The Deep State’s chosen candidate, Hillary Clinton, lost to the ultimate outsider, Donald Trump. All eyes, and all lies, turned to the perennial scapegoat Russia.

This time the elitist plan was more sinister than ever. Why let a good lie like ‘Russia election meddling’ go to waste?

The U.N. Is Behind Alex Jones Censorship

This targeting by out and proud, liberal companies, like Facebook, Spotify, Apple, Google, Youtube, and Twitter should be viewed in no less terms than election meddling, seeing it attempts to destroy one of two major right leaning media outfits in the country.

The phenomena of corporations revealing publicly their “political stripes” when traditionally they always have stayed neutral is a very new development in terms of geopolitics. People are simply not sophisticated enough, and missing the larger agenda here.

I have written in the past on this topic of corporations being politized during the Obama administration seeing it all started under him. I believe this to be a U.N. plan that is working to homogenize secular ethics enforcement among multinational companies. These companies are being given favored international status because of the adherence to U.N. objectives.

Internet Censorship: Appeal to Reinstate “American Everyman”

Just a week or so after Spotify, Google, Apple and Facebook made the curiously synchronized move to kick Alex Jones and InfoWars off their platforms, and just days after Facebook shut down Venezuelan news network TeleSur’s facebook page (for the second time), the war on the free internet has opened up another front.

Small independent blogs are being shut down, seemingly without reason and certainly without explanation.

AmericanEveryman.com has been closed without notice or warning, according to the blog’s owner Scott Creighton. Allegedly for violating WordPress’ “terms of service”, although they have apparently been entirely vague about how.

Other such blogs – fellowshipofminds.com and jaysanalysis.com – have suffered the exact same fate, on the exact dame day. There is undeniably a push to silence dissent and purge it from the internet. There may well be dozens – even hundreds – of other examples.

2-minute summary video: Pennsylvania Attorney General releases grand jury report documenting 301 pedophile priests raping 1000s of children, church ‘secret archive’ to hide/continue OBVIOUS crimes, backing similar evidence on UK PM Ted Heath, Bushes

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

“We subpoenaed, and reviewed, half a million pages of internal diocesan documents. They contained credible allegations against over three hundred predator priests. Over one thousand child victims were identifiable, from the church's own records. We believe that the real number of children whose records were lost, or who were afraid ever to come forward is in the thousands.

Most of the victims were boys; but there were girls too. Some were teens; many were pre-pubescent. Some were manipulated with alcohol or pornography. Some were made to masturbate their assailants, or were groped by them. Some were raped orally, some vaginally, some anally. But all of them were brushed aside, in every part of the state, by church leaders who preferred to protect the abusers and their institution above all.” ~ Introduction: Grand Jury report released by PA AG Josh Shapiro after two years’ investigation

New terms of censorship: Facebook bans news outlets critical of US establishment

Cooperate Or Die: In Private Meeting, Top Facebook Exec Threatened News Outlets

During a closed-door and off-the-record meeting last week, top Facebook executive Campbell Brown reportedly warned news publishers that refusal to cooperate with the tech behemoth's efforts to "revitalize journalism" will leave media outlets dying "like in a hospice."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is why the independent media is really important right now, and so worthy of support, both informationally and financially.

Because Brown's call to "revitalize journalism", is nothing more than a not so subtle, in your face threat, that the presstitutes and whorespondents can be broken, forever, by not adhering completely to the narrative of the nation-state, and any countering argument to that narrative must be ground down into the dirt, permanently and immediately.

So no, Mr. Brown: WRH refuses to do this, and we have suffered intensely from the financial, social, and intellectual stigmas associated with not carrying the Unhinged, Surveilled State of Amerika's water for it.

Yes, the siren song of the money, and opportunities available after becoming "the US Deep State's bitch" can still be heard, sotto voce; but just like listening to the song of a mermaid, trying to lure a sailor to their death, when you understand how completely expendable ordinary working people are to the inner workings of the monied who rule this country, the ethical costs of such a switch in perspective, are simply too great to bear.

Twitter To "Suspend Accounts For Trying To Evade Suspension"

Having seemingly distracted the world, briefly, from being caught 'shadowbanning' conservatives (or should we say "using quality filters"), by outright-banning other right-leaning individuals (Alex Jones and Peter van Buren forever; and Candace Owen and Ron Paul Institute's Daniel McAdams temporarily), it appears Twitter's CEO Jack Dorsey has a cunning plan for purging the rest of the world's naysayers from his platform.

"This week, we are suspending accounts for attempting to evade an account suspension. These accounts were previously suspended for abusive behavior or evading a previous suspension, and are not allowed to continue using Twitter."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

With the next month, I am hoping that people, not wanting to have their websites chosen for them, with others are suppressed, will be flocking to alternatives to twitter, and that this will render Twitter thoroughly... irrelevant.

Korean Leaders Agree to New September Summit in Pyongyang

Following two hours of meetings between top North and South Korean officials on Monday, the two sides announced that an agreement has been reached to hold a third summit in September. The summit will be in Pyongyang, though the exact date has not been announced.

Kim Jong-un and Moon Jae-in first met in April in the demilitarized zone, and then held a more informal summit in late May. At the time, officials on both sides suggested more summits were likely in the future.

As with the late May summit, this one comes amid signs that US-North Korea diplomacy is stumbling. South Korea has been advising the US on how to make progress, though often the US has rejected proposals that involve making any concessions.

North Korea is known to want a peace deal ending the 1950 Korean War, and the US is seen as resistant to the idea. The South Korean government has been pretty open about wanting peace too, however, and may try to get the process moving irrespective of US reticence.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The one thing both Koreas should do, and immediately, is reunify, putting an end to US threats and meddling in the region.

Once Korea is reunified, the US government cannot but treat it as a sovereign, undivided country, unless it characterizes the whole place 'a newly minted rogue nation.", and go after it as a whole entity.

And the optics on such a move would be horrifically awful.

YouTube to add “fact check” propaganda messages to MMR vaccine videos in latest Orwellian attempt to override reality

The move comes after YouTube announced this spring that it will place descriptions taken from Encyclopedia Britannica and Wikipedia alongside videos about topics that tend to attract conspiracy theories, such as the Oklahoma City bombing and the moon landing. Although YouTube has not shared a full list of topics that will be given this treatment, some of the topics identified in a post to its administrators include global warming, Dulce Base, the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the Kecksburg UFO incident, the 1980 Camarate air accident, and the MMR vaccine.

The company has not notified the users who originally uploaded the videos in question that they will bear these propaganda messages. It is not clear why YouTube is lumping the MMR vaccine’s proven link to autism in the same category as conspiracy theories, but given their track record, politics almost certainly played a big role.

US Dropped Mutual Assurances of Non-Meddling from Helsinki Declaration – Reports

The United States rejected a Russian offer to include mutual assurances of non-interference in polls from a proposed joint declaration at the Helsinki summit, media said.

Russia suggested adding a clause that would call cyberattacks on critical infrastructure – power grids, water pumps, banks and hospitals – unacceptable, three Russian and US officials told the Kommersant newspaper.

Sources said Moscow had proposed "joint measures to prevent the use of cyberspace to destabilize internal political processes, including elections." The United States initially agreed to sign the joint declaration but then rowed back on it.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Please note that it was the US government which rejected such language.

Antifa Vows “Bullets” For Political Enemies; Media Ignores Threat

Far left group’s open incitement to violence gets zero press coverage.

The mainstream media completely failed to report on Antifa members in DC yesterday, some of whom went on to assault police officers, carrying a banner which openly advertised their intention to put bullets in their political enemies.

Numerous video clips and photos show Antifa members carrying a large black banner which reads, “It takes a bullet to bash a fash.”

In another clip, leftists are asked what they would do if they met President Trump.

“I would murder him,” answered one, while another said, “We’d have to do him like Gaddafi.”

I asked leftist progressives outside the White House today what they would do if they met President Trump.
Their answers:
•"I would murder him."
•"We'd have to do him like Gaddafi."
•"If I get a chance to fuck him up I would."
•"Beat his ass."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

At 69 years of age, and a Christian composer, conductor, and pacifist activist, I am thoroughly astonished to see how far the left in this country is willing to play out the violence card.

And in looking this story up, because in clicking the title (and from a lot of resources) I got a "404 Error"; item not found.

The fact that it has been pulled from so many sources had to be a deliberate act by our "thought police", but I ultimately found the article nonetheless, at prisonplanet.com

Although there are times when I grouse about not finding enough talent here on the island to get my musical works recorded well, or heard here, right now, I am very grateful to Heaven that Mike and I are here rather than living on the mainland; were we there, we probably would have been assassinated by now.

And no, I am not kidding about that.

Hawaii is a very blue state, but people here can talk about politics, but not tear each others' hair out in the process, even when we do think differently about it; that is a real blessing.

Facebook's anonymous censors take down Latin America's Telesur, and nothing can stop them

When Facebook decides to censor, there is absolutely nothing to stop them. For the second time, left-leaning Latin American news network Telesur has had its Facebook page removed, with no explanation given.

When Telesur's page was first taken down in January this year, no explanation was given then either. 'Kafkaesque' is an overused phrase, but here it is absolutely valid. Telesur is being punished, yet no one will actually tell them why. Here is a description of Kafka's The Trial: "it tells the story of Josef K., a man arrested and prosecuted by a remote, inaccessible authority, with the nature of his crime revealed neither to him nor to the reader." Sound familiar?

The Real Reasons Peter Strzok was Fired from the FBI

There are certainly more than just the anti-Trump text messages sent by former FBI Special Agent Peter Strzok that led the second in command at the FBI to fire him. FBI Deputy Director David Bowdich actually overruled a recommendation by the bureau’s Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR) to suspend and demote the former senior agent, and instead, terminated Strzok on Friday.

Former FBI special agents, some of whom worked with OPR for years, said they agree with Bodwich’s decision. They told SaraACarter.com that the system is broken and Bodwich had no other choice but to step in and fire Strzok. They say political leanings, friendships and dual systems of justice inside OPR have plagued how cases regarding FBI agents are adjudicated and handled.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am hoping and praying that President Trump will absolutely fire everyone in the FBI who has not lived up to their Oath to Congress, and will replace them with people who will do that, and right the heck now!!

2016 Trump Tower Meeting Looks Increasingly Like a Setup by Russian and Clinton Operatives

The June 2016 Trump Tower meeting between high-ranking members of the Republican presidential campaign staff and a Russian lawyer with Kremlin ties remains the cornerstone of claims that Donald Trump colluded with Russia to steal the election.

A growing body of evidence, however, indicates that the meeting may have been a setup -- part of a broad effort to tarnish the Trump campaign involving Hillary Clinton operatives employed by Kremlin-linked figures and Department of Justice officials. This view, that the real collusion may have taken place among those who arranged the meeting rather than the Trump officials who agreed to attend it, is supported by two disparate lines of evidence pulled together for the first time here: newly released records and a pattern of efforts to connect the Trump campaign to Russia.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And we have a companion piece to this, also from whatdoesitmean.com, with the headline reading as follows;

RUDY GIULIANI: EX-CIA DIRECTOR JOHN BRENNAN IS BEHIND THE ENTIRE INVESTIGATION

Color me thoroughly unsurprised at these revelations, as I am sure is everyone who has been paying even moderate attention.

JUDGE ORDERS RELEASE OF ‘MUSLIM SCHOOL SHOOTING TRAINING CAMP’ SUSPECTS AFTER CHARGES OF RACISM

Judge Sarah Backus ordered the release of five suspects accused of running a “school shooting training camp” after one of their attorneys said they’re only being targeted because they’re “black and Muslim,” as opposed to “white and Christian.”

“Many people here live in unconventional ways,” Judge Baukus said.

“The NRA right now are telling us that guns are a good thing and that we should be training our teenagers to go ahead and use them, but now that we have someone who’s actually do that, and they’re not white, and they’re not Christian we think there’s some nefarious plan,” one of the suspects other attorneys told the media outside the court.

From CNN:

The evidence was intended to paint a disturbing picture of a zealous family training for a violent mission against government institutions, New Mexico prosecutors said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

How about the one dead kid, and the 11 starving children?!?

No crimes here, right, Judge Sarah Backus?!? Starvation and murder are not crimes against minor children in this country, if the family is Muslim, right?!?

With this release from prison by this Judge, one has to speculate if this guy wasn't hired by elements of the Deep State to teach his kids to do school shootings, as a way of imposing a total and complete gun ban on American citizens.

I fully expect all charges here to be dropped; the guy got caught before he could finish his intended work, and the case will no longer see the light of day in the media.

CENSORSHIP IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN POWERFUL PEOPLE GET SCARED

Anyone who tells you the recent escalation of censorship by U.S. tech giants is merely a reflection of private companies making independent decisions is either lying or dangerously ignorant.

In the case of Facebook, the road from pseudo-platform to willing and enthusiastic tool of establishment power players is fairly straightforward. It really got going earlier this year when issues surrounding egregious privacy violations in the case of Cambridge Analytica (stuff that had been going on for years) could finally be linked to the Trump campaign. It was at this point that powerful and nefarious forces spotted an opportunity to leverage the company’s gigantic influence in distributing news and opinion for their own ends. Rather than hold executives to account and break up the company, the choice was made to commandeer and weaponize the platform. This is where we stand today.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is only one thing to do with the unholy triumverate of Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube: ignore them as though they were the plague, and take a look at their upcoming competitors, like GAB! Yandex, and DuckDuckGo.

This is not to say that ultimately, these outlets won't get bought out, but at least for the time being, they are reasonably open, and don't track where you have been on these sites.

Ajit Pai loses in court—FCC can’t kill broadband subsidy in Tribal areas

A US appeals court has blocked the Federal Communications Commission's attempt to take a broadband subsidy away from Tribal areas.

The FCC decision, originally slated to take effect later this year, would have made it difficult or impossible for Tribal residents to obtain a $25-per-month Lifeline subsidy that reduces the cost of Internet or phone service for poor people. But on Friday, a court stayed the FCC decision pending appeal, saying that Tribal organizations and small wireless carriers are likely to win their case against the commission.

AN 11-YEAR-OLD HACKED A MOCK FLORIDA ELECTION SITE IN 10 MINUTES

The security of the U.S. election system just lost a vote of confidence.

At the annual hacker conference DefCon, Emmett Brewer, an 11-year-old boy from Austin, Texas, was able to change the results on a mock Florida election website. It took him 10 minutes.

Though the website in question was a mere replica of the Florida Secretary of State website, the hack points to the larger vulnerabilities of the election infrastructure in the U.S. On the heels of Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. election, Microsoft has already detected evidence of Russian interference in three races in the 2018 mid-terms.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It took this 11 year old kid 10 minutes to change the outcome of a mock-up of Florida's electronic voting system?!?

Folks, if we ever need to give these voting machines the deep-six, and restore paper ballots, now is the time.

And particularly in the upcoming midterms, we cannot allow Voter ID to be considered criminal, in any way, shape, or form!!

THERE'S A FENTANYL CRISIS IN THE UNITED STATES. NEBRASKA IS ABOUT TO MURDER SOMEONE WITH IT ON PURPOSE

If only "states with the death penalty spent half as much time developing policy to support people in their lives as they did figuring out ways to kill people"

As Nebraska prepares to complete its first state-sanctioned execution in two decades, human rights groups are condemning the death penalty and denouncing officials for operating under a "cloak of secrecy" in obtaining the drugs that will be used to kill Carey Dean Moore—substances that have caused tens of thousands of accidental deaths across the U.S. in recent years.

Amnesty International denounced the state's move to participate in "the ultimate denial of human rights" after having carried out no executions since 1997.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF you have never seen the film "Dead Man Walking", featuring Susan Sarandon as Sister Prejean, and Sean Penn as the guy about to be executed, please do yourself a favor, and record it/buy it. If you still think that summary execution for murderers, even in the most "kind and humanitarian way possible" is absolutely the right thing to do, this movie.... just may change your mind and heart, particularly if you are a brother or sister Christian.

This Catholic nun has been one of the most ardent activists against the death penalty in the United States, and I have absolute utter respect for her.

I do not believe in executions for murder, and before you label me a namby-pamby leftist sychophant on this issue, I would like to politely remind you, that the chain of evidence in this country is horrifically vulnerable to misuse, neglect, and damage.

If you don't believe me, take a look at what The Innocence Project in Texas is doing.

The Innocence Project

For murder, I would suggest a national standard of life imprisonment with zero possibility of parole; these people cannot be allowed to kill again.

OH LOOK, YET MORE EFFORTS TO STRANGLE BROADBAND COMPETITION

A major component of the Telecommunications Act of 1996 was the idea of line sharing, or local loop unbundling. Simply put, the rules set forth required that incumbent telcos needed to share their networks with smaller competitors, providing wholesale access to bandwidth. It was an effort to foster something vaguely resembling competition in the broadband space by letting smaller companies piggyback on existing network infrastructure. The thought was that because the barriers to market entry were so high (both politically and financially), this could help smaller competitors gain footholds that would otherwise be impossible.

The effort didn't work out for several reasons.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Here on Oahu, we are stuck with Spectrum, which promises much, in those multi-million commercials, featuring the voice of the comedian, Ellen De Generes, but actually delivers very little of what it promises.

When cable companies do not have to compete, they don't have to give a damn about the true quality of their service, or if there is even a modicum of public satisfaction with it.

VENEZUELAN PIRATES SPREAD FEAR ACROSS THE CARIBBEAN

Vessels sailing in the vicinity of Trinidad and Tobago are now under threat of being the victims of piracy for the first since the 1700s. According to a report from the Washington Post, in the wake of Venezuela’s economic and societal collapse, criminals desperate to earn a living have taken up the centuries-old crime and are attacking yachts and fishing vessels along the coast of South America.

Jeremy McDermott of Insight Crime, a nonprofit that studies organized crime in the region told the Washington Post that “It’s criminal chaos, a free-for-all, along the Venezuelan coast.”

“This reminds me of how the problems started off the coast of eastern Africa," said Roodal Moonilal, a politician from Trinidad and Tobago while speaking to the Washington Post. “What we’re seeing – the piracy, the smuggling – it’s the result of Venezuela’s political and economic collapse.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Forgive my cynicism here, but I have to wonder if this violence has perhaps been "underwritten" by the American Deep State in some way, so that unthinking American s will cheer when the Marines go into the region to "clear this up", and ultimately invade the country (with one of the largest oil reserves on the planet) in order to "save it from itself."

When's a backdoor not a backdoor? When the Oz government says it isn't

Australia's promised “not-a-backdoor” crypto-busting bill is out and the government has kept its word - it doesn't want a backdoor, just the keys to your front one.

The draft of The Assistance and Access Bill 2018 calls for anyone using or selling communications services in Australia will be subject to police orders for access to private data.

That includes all vendors of computers, phones, apps, social media and cloud services in the Lucky Country, and anyone within national borders using them. These data-tapping orders will be enforced with fines of up to AU$10m (US$7.3m) for companies or $50,000 ($36,368) for individuals

The draft legislation also wants five years in prison for anyone who reveals a data-slurping investigation is going on.

'DEEPLY DISTURBING': FOR SECOND TIME THIS YEAR, FACEBOOK SUSPENDS LEFT-LEANING TELESUR ENGLISH WITHOUT EXPLANATION

Deeply Disturbing': For Second Time This Year, Facebook Suspends Left-Leaning teleSUR English Without Explanation

"It seems like the censorship power many people on the left want Silicon Valley executives to unilaterally exercise might end up being wielded against the left. One good way to know that would happen is that is already is happening."

For the second time this year, Facebook removed TeleSUR English's page without an explanation beyond claiming the media network had violated the platform's terms of service. (Photo: TeleSUREnglish/Twitter)

For the second time this year, Facebook has suspended teleSUR English's page, claiming the left-leaning Latin American news network violated the social media platform's terms of service without any further explanation—a move that provoked outrage and concern among journalists, free speech advocates, and Big Tech critics.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would politely suggest that all of us, when confronted with this electronic shunning of a site we believe should be up there, even if we may pointedly disagree with its content, should be emailing Facebook, and asking specifically what "terms of service" were violated by that site.

If ALL of us do this, it will at least put Facebook on notice; perhaps (peacefully) overwhelming its servers would make the point.

But in light that this station originates in Venezuela, and the US government doesn't want anything but the "US Official Narrative" to be heard by both English and Spanish-speaking people, one wonders; after the colossal flub of its attempting to murder Maduros via drone strike, what other "pleasantries" the US government has in store for him and the Venezuelan people, and soon?!?

Microsoft Threatens to Shut Down Gab After Anti-Semitic Posts by User

Microsoft Azure, the web hosting provider for Gab, has given the company 48 hours to delete some anti-Semitic posts or face a Big Tech shut-down. Gab is a Twitter alternative that claims to protect the right to free speech. It's not a very good alternative, as the numbers just aren't there to keep it interesting. Most of the time it's just righties and ultra-righties fighting amongst themselves. But Gab's claim to fame is that they won't kick people off for having unpopular views or engaging in insult trading that morons refer to as "hate speech." For some, that's a worthwhile promise.

Facebook vanishes Venezuela-based left-leaning news network again

Telesur English, a multi-state-funded Latin American news network, says that Facebook has removed its page for the second time this year “without any specific reason being provided.”

Telesur claims its page was abruptly taken offline on Monday. Facebook provided the vague explanation that the page had violated its terms of use, but did not elaborate further.

“This is an alarming development in light of the recent shutting down of pages that don't fit a mainstream narrative,” the network declared.

Democrats hire ‘battle station organizers’ to shape midterm elections public debate

The Democratic Party in the US is making an effort to use social media in its favor ahead of midterms, using those tactics it claimed ‘Russian trolls’ used during the 2016 elections, leading the party to lose.

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has internal software that identifies suspected bots on Twitter, part of what The Washington Post reports is its response to fears of potential Russian influence in the midterm elections.

The committee started using the software a few months ago as part of an aggressive strategy to shape political conversations online. It has already flagged no less than 10 accounts to Twitter, resulting in their shutdown.

WordPress Takes Down Fellowship of the Minds

As we all knew at the time, the silencing of Infowars was only the beginning. Now WordPress has joined the leftist lynchmob, along with Facebook, Google, Apple, Disqus, and the rest of the Silicon Valley giants who have taken upon themselves responsibility for deciding what we should read. If you try to visit the right-leaning blog Fellowship of the Minds today, you will find a WordPress page announcing that the blog has been “archived or suspended in accordance with our Terms of Service.”

The site’s author Dr. Eowyn has not yet been banned from Facebook, where he expresses bewilderment over specifically which thought crime got his blog killed. He may never know. As noted previously, under tyrannical systems, it is not specifically what you say that is a crime; it is your dissident attitude that is punished.

It looks like WordPress did the same thing at the same time to Saboteur 365. Some coincidence.

RUSSIAN MILITARY SPY SOFTWARE IS ON HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF HOME ROUTERS

The Russian military is inside hundreds of thousands of routers owned by Americans and others around the world, a top U.S. cybersecurity official said on Friday. The presence of Russian malware on the routers, first revealed in May, could enable the Kremlin to steal individuals’ data or enlist their devices in a massive attack intended to disrupt global economic activity or target institutions.

On May 27, Justice Department officials asked Americans to reboot their routers to stop the attack. Afterwards, the world largely forgot about it. That’s a mistake, said Rob Joyce, senior advisor to the director of the National Security Agency and the former White House cybersecurity coordinator.

“The Russian malware is still there,” said Joyce.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Yet more demonization of Russia here in the US?!?

Because IF this is real, it appears to primarily be a problem for routers in Ukraine.

1 1/2 MINUTE VIDEO – ANTIFA/BLM THUGS ATTACK POLICEMAN & NEWS CREW.

The Antifa Street thugs don’t realize that ultimately, they are giving police the right to shoot protesters on site. The Communist thugs behind all of this who are employing the Gramcian strategy of pressure from below/pressure from above, know exactly what they’re doing. What happens when the police become arbitrary and oppressive? The next step is a police state which puts all power in the hands of government instead of the people. Are you ready for that?

Conclusion after 18 years working with both political party ‘leaderships’: US is a lying, looting, illegal neocolonial rogue state empire pimped by corporate media and public education, with zero improvement possible until .01% arrests

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

US political, media, and education “leaders” are liars with criminal complicity of neocolonial crimes annually killing millions, harming billions, and looting trillions as .01% parasites manipulate to control and profit from Earth’s resources (natural and human).

No improvement is possible without .01% arrests after an Emperor’s New Clothes public awakening.

Let’s consider:
1. My testimony of a front seat to this tragic-comic parasitism.
2. Documented data to explain and prove my factual claims.

What I witnessed of US “leadership”

From 1980 to 1997 I was a volunteer with RESULTS.org for US domestic and foreign policy to end poverty. Our work started in Southern California, I took it to Northern California as a UC Berkeley student, and we expanded to over 100 US communities, seven countries, and were leading voices for two UN summits for heads of state (details documented here). My observations include:

What’s really going on when you hear the words ‘public policy’

When politicians and bureaucrats talk about democracy and public policy, they speak with a forked tongue. They want you to believe that these terms refer to personal liberty. They do not, and the politician knows that they do not. They know that they refer to the police power and enforcement of state authority over the individual. They are code words for government force.

The Federal Reserve: Secretly Sticking It To Americans For Over 100 Years

Of course the central bankers will tell us that secrecy is important for “maintaining independence” and “security” of the markets. These claims that there is a legitimate need for secrecy would be slightly more credible if it were for a limited time. -- That is not the case, however. The Fed is, in many regards, a virtual black box which shall remain closed for all time, at least if officials continue to have their way. -- The most “interesting” works of the Wall Street elites in power there will never be published or examined. It is considered vital the public never knows about certain activities. -- There is only one reason for that level of secrecy: We might object.

George Orwell Warned Us Of The Most Dangerous Type Of Censorship

The end result of this type of censorship, however, quite likely will not bring about the feared Soviet-style clampdown on ideas that challenge the establishment. It’s more reasonable to expect that these companies have fallen prey to monopolistic hubris and will soon see massive declines in viewership, collapsing stock prices and the revolt of angry shareholders. In other words, these companies are shooting themselves in the feet. That said, the current social/political/media climate in America today is likely to bring about the rise of a far more insidious and dangerous type of censorship: self-censorship.

Exposed: How Google Still Tracks You Even When “Location History” Is Turned Off

Android and iPhone users may be under the impression that Google is not tracking their location data if they’ve turned off “Location History” on their devices. After all, the Google support page says, “With Location History off, the places you go are no longer stored.” -- But a new Associated Press investigation showed how that is not really the case. Some Google apps still automatically collect users’ location markers—information it can use to benefit its advertising revenue.

US Sanctions Are Pushing Russia To War

The new round of sanctions this week unleashed by the United States on Russia has only one meaning: the US rulers want to crush Russia’s economy. By any definition, Washington is, in effect, declaring war on Russia.

The implemented economic measures may have a seemingly abstract or sterile quality about them: banning electronic exports to Russia, rattling financial markets, stock prices falling. But the material consequence is that American officials are intending to inflict physical damage on Russian society and Russian people.

It’s economic warfare on a sliding scale to military warfare, as the Prussian General Karl von Clausewitz would no doubt appreciate.

It seems all the more significant that this week also saw US internet services launching a major clampdown on anti-war websites, suggesting that the powers-that-be want to shut down any criticism or public awareness of their reckless warmongering.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev is absolutely correct in his assessment.

Unfortunately, the the timing of this unloosing of the "dogs of war" against Russia, via these sanctions, and these attempts at silencing the independent media right now, which generally are pro-peace, were no accidents.

I cannot know when a physical false flag will be turned loose against Russia; I might suggest, potentially, that it may happen at the "drop-dead moment" President Trump has declared, as the absolute moratorium against all governments on the planet to stop buying oil from Iran; that "drop dead date", is Sunday, 4 November, the Sunday before the mid-term elections which happen in the US on Tuesday, 6 November.

This will be largely unenforceable, in light of the fact that Russia, China, and Turkey, have all spurned this veto against trade, and will continue to trade with Iran.

I would suggest that there may be something significant, happening either on Monday 5 November, on on the mid-term election date proper, against both Iran and Russia, although I see a potential attack against Iran coming sooner, as President Trump's pollsters may well see that there is a very real concern among the American people, that such an attack has absolutely no US legal "cover", (which it does not), so may feel they want to go in early, perhaps during, or right after the Labor Day holiday coming up, with yet another ginned up, concoction of lies, so that the American people will generally have just come back from a holiday, before they realize that their country has gone to war against Iran.

OF course, for the country of Israel, such a war against Iran cannot possibly happen soon enough.

For his next vacation this summer at any of the hotels he owns, I would politely suggest that President Trump should be reading Sun Tzu's "The Art of War." I have archived a version for him here, from the MIT classics Library.
Sun Tzu: The Art of War.

H needs to see where the US government and military stack up to any of the thoughts this military genius had about why wars are successfully won, or horrifically lost, then move accordingly.

I would like to politely remind President Trump, Congress, the Pentagon, Congress and the State Department, that right now in its history, the US military does not have the troop strength; the money; the manufacturing, or the weaponry to insure a successful outcome in a war against both Russia and /or China.

And when any wars the United States undertake, go nuclear, as may well go any wars against China or Russia by the United States, I would suggest extreme caution by President Trump in what he wishes for as the outcome, from such a conflagration; the results may well be both horrific..... and irreversible.

Sweden Is Burning: Migrant Gangs Unleash Coordinated Fire-Bomb Rampage Across Multiple Cities

Many Swedes were horrified in early 2017 when U.S. President Donald Trump linked immigration to rising crime in Sweden, but an increasing number now agree with him.

Amid soaring crime rates, gang violence, complaints about education, and pregnant mothers even being turned away from maternity wards due to a lack of capacity, resentment in Sweden has built over the influx of more than 600,000 immigrants over the past five years.

And tonight is one of the worst night for violence in recent history as police report multiple gangs of masked youths rampaging across three major Swedish cities, setting cars on fire in what seems like a coordinated action.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Prayers for the Swedish people, dealing with this violence; but also, prayers - and votes - that Swedish legislators get the message, and never, ever again allow unvetted immigration, which is turning Sweden into a massive funeral pyre for the Swedish people.

Peter Strzok Tweets Link To $150,000 GoFundMe For "Lost Income And Legal Fees"

Just-fired FBI agent Peter Strzok hopped on Twitter Monday with a statement from his lawyer and a link to a GoFundMe account set up by the "Friends Of Special Agent Peter Strzok," which has already raised just under $30,000 in three hours after more than 700 people donated to the fundraiser. Jennifer Kay, a spokeswoman for Strzok's attorney, confirmed that the Twitter account was authentic according to the Daily Caller.

The Revenge Of Hillary: Senator Mark Warner Proposes The End Of Free Speech

Senate Democrats are circulating a proposal based upon their claim of Russian hacking that will completely takeover the internet and social media which has been leaked.

They are adopting the EU approach to silence political criticism. They claim it is necessary, just as the EU argued, that they must act to prevent Russian hackers and “restore” the people’s trust in our institutions, democracy, and the free press. They are proposing comprehensive GDPR-like data protection legislation following the EU.

They are calling it a proposal for “Regulation of Social Media and Technology Firms,” and the draft was created by Sen. Mark Warner.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In the most peaceful, powerful, and responsible way possible, this legislation must be stopped in its tracks.

Paul Craig Roberts Blasts Mueller's 'Weaponization' Of The Law

Robert Mueller is supposed to be investigating Russiagate, which has been shown to be a hoax concocted by former CIA director John Brennan, former FBI director James Comey, and current deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. As Russiagate is a hoax, Mueller has not been able to produce a shred of evidence of the alleged Trump/Putin plot to hack Hillary’s emails and influence the last presidential election.

Mueller chose Paul Manafort as a target, hoping that faced with fighting false charges, Manafort would make a deal and make up some lies about Trump and Putin in exchange for the case against him being dropped. But Manafort stood his ground, forcing Mueller to go forward with a false case.

10 Numbers That Prove That America's Current Financial Condition Is A Horror Show

America’s long-term “balance sheet numbers” just continue to get progressively worse. Unfortunately, since the stock market has been soaring and the GDP numbers look okay, most Americans assume that the U.S. economy is doing just fine.

But the stock market was soaring and the GDP numbers looked okay just prior to the great financial crisis of 2008 as well, and we saw how that turned out. The truth is that GDP is not the best measure for the health of the economy. Judging the U.S. economy by GDP is basically like measuring the financial health of an individual by how much money he or she spends, and I will attempt to illustrate that in this article.

If I went out right now and got a whole bunch of new credit cards and started spending money like there was no tomorrow, would that mean that my financial condition had improved?

No, in fact it would mean that my long-term financial condition just got a whole lot worse.

The public execution of Infowars is dangerous and counterproductive

Always the trendsetter, Apple’s decisive action against the rightwing media outlet Infowars has led to an unprecedented domino effect. After Apple delisted podcast links, Spotify soon followed. Facebook made a decision to “unpublish” Infowars’ pages hours later, before the group’s main home, YouTube, said it had “terminated” the group’s channel, which was watched by 2.5 million subscribers (Alex Jones claims millions more have signed up since the ban).

Hundreds of well-intentioned campaigners, commentators and even journalists are celebrating the public hanging of Infowars – but this style of execution benefits no one.

The biggest internet platforms are increasingly society’s chief arbiters of free speech. Our conversations, relationships, businesses and democracies are increasingly mediated by a handful of global, for-profit companies.

US, TURKEY DECLARE ECONOMIC WAR

Relations between the US and Turkey — a key American ally and home to NATO’s second-largest army — hit a new low on Friday, with the presidents of both countries rhetorically declaring economic war on each other. And over the course of a single day, the Turkish lira lost 17 percent of its value.

Within hours, early signs of panic spread to world financial markets. A European currency trader, who asked that his name not be published, told WhoWhatWhy on Sunday that he had never seen so much trade and volatility over a weekend, blaming it on the Turkey events.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

American foreign and economic policies should be used as a feather; rarely as a club.

Unfortunately, President Trump, DC's Merchant of Death in Chief (chief supporter of US arms sales to Saudi Arabia, for its genocide in Yemen) believes in the power of a "bully pulpit" from which he can force "Pax Americana" on an increasingly unwilling and hostile world, without really paying attention to the condition in which the Unhinged, Surveilled State of Amerika, finds itself, in this part of the 21st century.

We are a nation in decline; nearly destroyed by a National debt which can never be repaid; with US infrastructure crumbling, and a pronouncedly "third world" feel to our inner cities, primarily due to massive illegal immigration.

The US continues to do what has always done well, in the immortal words of George Carlin (paraphrased); we continue to kill brown people, because we're good at it!

And this is all in the name of expropriating resources, to which the US government has no moral right; regime change to insure that governments are US centric, and that those resources stolen from their countries of origin, will only be sold in US dollars.

And I have to wonder, with this feud between Erdogan and President Trump; did anyone happen to mention to him, that such activities were nearly bound to push Turkey into the economic/military sways of both China and Russia?!?

Was this the outcome actually wanted?!?

And if not, why the hell didn't someone around him suggest this possibility, which is about to morph into some huge embarrassments for the US in the Middle East and beyond?!?

NON-VERBAL AUTISTIC CHILD TASERED BY SCHOOL COP, LEFT LYING IN HIS OWN URINE FOR 13 MINUTES

A deeply disturbing lawsuit filed in federal court this month tells the horrific story of an autistic child at a Caddo Parish high school who was tasered and left lying motionless in a pool of his own urine.

On Aug. 31, J.H. reportedly began rubbing his stomach against the wall in the classroom when a staff member told him to stop. J.H. then walked out of the classroom and down the hall to the water fountain where he began to compulsively drink water. He then stood in the hallway with his fingers in his ears which is normal behavior for J.H. when he is stressed, according to the lawsuit.

Staff members, including a deputy then formed a semi-circle around J.H. which escalated the situation even further.

As the Shreveport Times reports:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This “Deputy Nunnery” should be immediately fired, and the services of this Sheriff's Department be terminated by the school district immediately as well.

Tasering an autistic child, most likely because the officer in charge "got off on the violence", and didn't believe that his actions would ever be questioned in the least?!?

This child's mother should be filing a class-action lawsuit against both the School and Sheriff's Department, charging gross negligence in failing to protect her son from this kind of activity.

EXPOSURE OF SECRET TSA SURVEILLANCE PROGRAM NETS THE GOVERNMENT MORE TERRORIST WATCHLIST LITIGATION

The recent exposure of the TSA's "Quiet Skies" program by the Boston Globe is leading to more terrorist watchlist litigation. The "Quiet Skies" program sends air marshals all over the US to watch travelers swallow, shop, use the restroom, and stare at things. It's suspicionless surveillance even the air marshals disagree with, with some quoted by the Globe calling the program a worthless waste of tax dollars, if not just a vehicle for repeated Constitutional violations.

RUSSIA TO DUMP MORE US TREASURIES IN RETALIATION AGAINST SANCTIONS

Moscow will continue selling off its holdings of US Treasury securities in response to the new penalties Washington is ready to introduce against Russia in the near future, according to Russia’s Finance Minister Anton Siluanov.
The minister added that the government will stick to the plan of moving away from the US dollar for international trade, as it recently proved to be a “risky” payment method.

“I do not rule it out,” Siluanov said in an interview with Rossiya 1 TV channel. “We have significantly reduced our investment in US assets. In fact, the dollar, which is considered to be the international currency, becomes a risky tool for payments.”

In 2010, Russia was among the top-10 holders of US debt at over $176 billion. With several rounds of US sanctions targeting Russia since 2014, Moscow began selling off its holdings to below $100 billion by October 2017.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Punishing a country for something that it didn't do (absolutely, in the case of Crimea, which was NEVER annexed by Russia, but held a referendum, asking their people if they wanted to stay with post-Putsch Ukraine, or petition the Russian Federation for Membership, or allegedly poisoning the Skripals, which has utterly no basis in fact of logic) will ultimately have real-world consequences, financial being among them.

The US government has just, financially and intellectually, kicked itself in the crotch with this stupid move, and the consequences are ultimately going to hurt both American and European business which have traded with Russia; but hurting Russia itself financially?!?

As with Iran, not unless and until the US can convince the rest of world not to trade with Russia will it ultimately feel the proverbial pinch, so this move is about as ham-fistedly, pig-headedly stupid as the current Administration can do.

“The Saudi leadership wants to drive home a message that it’s fine to invest in Saudi Arabia and bring your money to Saudi Arabia, but that there are red lines that should not be crossed,” Riccardo Fabiani, a geopolitical analyst at Energy Aspects, told Bloomberg, but warned that such strategy could backfire.

Analysts are currently not sure how the feud will unfold, but Aurel Braun, a professor of political science and international relations at the University of Toronto, told Canada’s Global News that Saudi Arabia is unlikely to back down and reverse all its retaliatory measures without getting something back from Canada.

DIVIDE & CONQUER ON FULL DISPLAY AS MEDIA DEVOTES DAYS OF ATTENTION TO 20 WHITE NATIONALISTS IN DC

Approximately 20 white nationalists rallied in the nation’s capital over the weekend on the anniversary of the face off in Charlottesville, Virginia and the media has incessantly devoted round the clock coverage of it for the last week. Why is that?

In the days leading up to the protest, the mainstream media essentially acted as advertisement for the tiny group of white nationalists who’s lackluster turnout would have likely gone entirely unnoticed otherwise. The divide was stoked so much that hundreds of counter protesters showed up ready for battle only to be sadly disappointed that they had no one to scream at.

While it is certainly noble to protest racism and hate—as the majority of the 40 anti-racism groups did over the weekend—their response was anything but organic. Thanks to the heavy media coverage and fear that “white nazis” would be gathering in D.C., hundreds of counter-protesters were able to prepare and show up for the rally.

Those engaging in cybercrimes in the UAE can be sent to jail for a period not exceeding 25 years in addition to a fine up to some $1 million.

The terrorism related activity includes: “whoever establishes, manages or runs a website or publishes information on the computer network or information technology means for the interest of a terrorist group or any unauthorised group, association, organisation”, the WAM Agency statement read.

‘HATE CRIMES’

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why does it not surprise me, that this same country, terrified of what its own people may think about its government, is torturing in Yemen?!?

That has to be part of the three-legged stool, is it not, of surveillance, threatening those who do not believe the government, posting alternative viewpoints, and then using torture to reinforce the consequences of the first two acts.

This is all as logical as it is deplorable.

SECRET REPORT REVEALS TORTURE USED IN SAUDI-LED COALITION PRISONS IN YEMEN

Al Jazeera received a secret report prepared by former military officials who worked with the Saudi-UAE alliance in Yemen on the conditions of prisons and secret detention centres and forced disappearances.

The information in the report matched the testimonies of prisoners and abductees given to human rights activists. Such details also reinforced what had been revealed by the Associated Press in previous investigations.

The report revealed some of the atrocities taking place in these secret UAE-controlled prisons situated in southern Yemen. The violations range from murdering detainees and abductees to torture and deprivation. Moreover, the report listed sites and names of secret graves, detainees tortured to death and missing persons, as well as identities of the torturers and the details of interrogations

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Remember when Gina Haspel, now head of the CIA, assured Congressional Representatives, that torture would never happen again on her watch, no matter where in the world?!?

Who is arming, funding, and advising the Saudis on their genocide in Yemen?!?

Were I the same Congressional Representatives who interviewed her, and heard those promises in English she made about never having this happen again, and understanding what was now going on in Yemen, Courtesy of the UAE, and I would put her back side right back into the investigative chair, and ask her why she is allowing the UAE to do this.

Or, perhaps, given the proclivities of some members of the US Deep State to "get off" on this kind of torture, psychologically, one might say that, perhaps, she has already been given a "get out of jail, fee" card, with her defense as being given that "she is not in control" of UAE torture in Yemen.

While this may be technically true, that Haspel, apparently, is making absolutely zero moves to stop this, while the best intellects in intelligence work, claim, irrefutably, that torture does not work, and only gets the tortured person to say what the torturers to say to get the torture to stop, means that she is, personally, ethically and morally, cheering the torturers on.

The leadership of this country had a choice with her nomination; they could have chosen a Hanns Scharrf-like character, a German-born American and British world War II hero, who never used torture to get intelligence from his prisoners, but was unfailingly kind, and used to get them day passes for cultural events, or someone with the human rights sensitivities just to the right of those of Attila the Hun.

You have seen the direction this Government has chosen to go, with Haspel's confirmation, and that makes me very much fear for the future of my country.

Gun Owners Should Fear the Deep State

Some gun owners believe the deep state poses no peril to them because they are entitled to due process, a presumption of innocence and other constitutional rights. But such assurances can quickly become mirages when many politicians portray every privately owned firearm as a massacre in waiting. Many liberals will champion any “show us the gun and we’ll find a crime” crackdown. “Those who have nothing to hide, have nothing to fear” is an old saying designed to breed docility. But gun owners can afford to accept this adage less now than ever before. The deep state stands ready to exploit the rising tide of laws that turn gun owners into criminals who can be destroyed for political and bureaucratic profit.

In A Corporatist System Of Government, Corporate Censorship Is State Censorship

We’re going to have to find a way to keep the oligarchs from having their cake and eating it too. Either (A) corporations are indeed private organizations separate from the government, in which case the people need to get money out of politics and government agencies out of Silicon Valley so they can start acting like it, and insist that their owners can’t be dragged out on to the Senate floor and instructed on what they can and can’t do with their business, or (B) these new media platforms get treated like the government agencies they function as, and the people get all the First Amendment protection that comes with it. Right now the social engineers are double-dipping in a way that will eventually give the alliance of corporate plutocrats and secretive government agencies the ability to fully control the public’s access to ideas and information. If they accomplish that, it’s game over for humanity.

PayPal censors journalists who criticize Israel

An operative of Israel’s global censorship campaign has admitted to exaggerating claims of anti-Semitism in order to engineer crackdowns on supporters of Palestinian rights.

In the latest instance, Benjamin Weinthal has apparently succeeded in persuading PayPal to close down the account of the French online publication Agence Media Palestine.

This constitutes censorship as it denies journalists the means to raise money for their work and retaliates against them for ideas they express.

Agence Media Palestine says it is considering legal action.

Weinthal presents his efforts as reportage for The Jerusalem Post on the actions of companies like PayPal, but what he really does is instigate crackdowns by feeding information – by his own admission distorted – about those he is targeting.

Censorship of Infowars Exposes Larger Problem of Silicon Valley Bias

Private companies can, of course, censor whomever they like, but the pattern of behavior from Silicon Valley toward speech in general—and continual inability to treat conservative views fairly on their extremely powerful platforms—is rightly concerning to conservatives who use those platforms.

Infowars is hardly a conservative website, but some fear that the social media “deplatforming” of its content will bleed over to other more mainstream outlets—especially right-leaning ones that don’t conform with the overwhelmingly left-wing values of the tech industry.

Given the vague and increasingly expanding use of the term “hate speech,” it’s not unreasonable to think that purging Infowars is the tip of the iceberg.

BuzzFeed News confirmed that this was part of the company’s “ongoing effort to combat the rampant misinformation and conspirational fodder on its platform.”

Now, a little blurb from Wikipedia or Encyclopedia Britannica appears under videos that call climate change into question, ensuring that the public knows, “Multiple lines of scientific evidence show that the climate system is warming.”

Left-wing journalists CELEBRATE the complete censorship of Alex Jones, claiming the First Amendment only applies to “official” views

“Gone are the days of leftists hating on corporations and warning of a dystopian future world run by global capitalists and in are the days of leftists cheering a dystopian present where global capitalists shut down all speech they disagree with to crush a middle class revolt,” writes Chris Menahan for InformationLiberation.com.

It just goes to show that the Left is comprised of nothing more than deranged, childish, groupthink drones who are completely consumed with a “me, Me, ME!” mentality. It’s all love and tolerance, just so long as I don’t have to be offended by anyone else’s viewpoints, is basically the liberal narrative of today – hence why we’re now in a position where conservatives are being openly censored and persecuted by liberal tyrants.

The First Amendment: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Note that freedom of the press is expressed separately from freedom of speech, meaning said freedom is NOT confined to the "official" news media.

The liberals are proving themselves to be the enemies of America.

Censorship Purge Signals Imminent False Flag Violence Before Mid-Term Elections... Bigger Than 9/11?

The aggressive, unprecedented PURGE of Alex Jones / InfoWars underscores the desperation of the totalitarian deep state that’s about to make a move to eliminate President Trump and / or steal the elections.

Anyone who believes that the sudden de-platforming of Alex Jones across over a dozen online services and platforms isn’t coordinated collusion is delusional. The coordinated de-platforming effort is clearly directed by the deep state to eliminate a prominent, dissenting voice in preparation for unleashing a history-shaping false flag attack that’s likely going to be bigger than 9/11.

The radical Left is escalating its violence across America, and the tech giants are dramatically escalating their censorship actions to silence all independent voices that might question any “official” narrative.

It all points to something big about to come down - something so big that only the official narrative can be allowed to be heard or spoken.

YOUTUBE IS CENSORING SF’S NEW 1.5-HOUR LONG VIDEO “RUSSIAN MILITARY CAMPAIGN IN SYRIA 2015-2018”

YouTube is censoring SouthFront’s new 1.5-hour long video “Russian Military Campaign in Syria 2015-2018“.

This video is a detailed summary of military and political developments in Syria since the start of the Russian military operation until now. It was released by SouthFront on August 11.

Less than 2 hours after the release, this video was placed behind an age restriction because it allegedly includes “violent or graphic content that appears to be posted in a shocking, sensational, or disrespectful manner”. The age-restriction clearly impacts a possible reach of the video because it does not allow people without YouTube accounts to watch it.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

YouTube doesn't want people to know the US government lost in Syria.

Bankrupt America: Bankruptcy Soars As The Country Grapples With An Unprecedented Debt Problem

America, you officially have a debt problem, and I am not just talking about the national debt. Consumer bankruptcies are surging, corporate debt has doubled since the last financial crisis, state and local government debt loads have never been higher, and the federal government has been adding more than a trillion dollars a year to the federal debt ever since Barack Obama entered the White House. We have been on the greatest debt binge in human history, and it has enabled us to enjoy our ridiculously high standard of living for far longer than we deserved. Many of us have been sounding the alarm about our debt problem for a very long time, but now even the mainstream news is freaking out about it. I have a feeling that they just want something else to hammer President Trump over the head with, but they are actually speaking the truth when they say that we are facing an unprecedented debt crisis.

The Grand Irony of RussiaGate: The U.S. Becomes More Like the U.S.S.R. Every Day

When the Soviet regime exiled Sakharov in 1980, everybody assumed the USSR was permanent and impregnable to collapse. In other words, “it can’t happen here.” But it did happen, and believing “it can’t happen here” did nothing but hasten the collapse.

Police Using Mouth Swab Tests For Stoned Driving Despite Admitting They’re Inaccurate

It is strange that there is such an obsession with busting people for driving with cannabis in their system, especially in states where it is recognized as a medicine that people can get a prescription for. Every single day millions of people drive around with drugs like Xanax and Percocet in their systems and no one thinks twice about it.

Confirmed: Mark Zuckerberg Personally Made Decision to Ban Infowars

This follows the revelation that Apple CEO Tim Cook also personally took the decision to ban the Infowars podcast.

Confirmation that both Cook and Zuckerberg was involved underscores the stark reality that billionaires and giant corporations that control the public discourse are now wielding more power over free speech than governments.

As Jones himself tweeted today, “Should billionaires & huge corporations get to decide what we can say and read?”
