Expert says 'active shooter' drills are good for even young students

This is Lunacy. According to many students they were told they would have an active shooter drill at the high school in Florida.

PORTLAND, Ore. — We all know what to do during a fire drill, but today, students face a whole new battery of drills that most adults never had to worry about.

In the wake of Wednesday's deadly school shooting in Florida, it's clear that those drills will become a normal part of many students' routines.

Mueller’s ‘Pit Bull’ Andrew Weissmann Busted for Withholding Evidence in Previous Case

The top attorney in Robert Mueller’s Special Counsel’s office was reported to the Department of Justice’s Inspector General by a lawyer representing whistleblowers for alleged “corrupt legal practices” more than a year before the 2016 presidential election and a decade before to the Senate Judiciary Committee , this reporter has learned.

Described by the New York Times as Mueller’s ‘pitbull,’ Andrew Weissmann, a former Eastern District of New York Assistant U.S. Attorney, rose through the ranks to eventually become Mueller’s general counsel at the F.B.I.

In 2015 Weissmann was selected to run the Department of Justice’s criminal fraud section and was later handpicked by Mueller to join the ongoing Special Counsel’s Office investigation into the alleged obstruction and alleged collusion between Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign and Russia.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is certainly interesting, the company Meuller keeps.. and hires, even with known deficiencies and outright obstruction have occurred.

MUELLER INDICTMENT PART OF CYCLE OF INFORMATION WARFARE AND ELECTION MEDDLING BETWEEN U.S. AND RUSSIA

Thirteen Russian nationals allegedly involved in an information warfare operation to interfere in the 2016 presidential election were indicted by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

The indictment [PDF] claims the Internet Research Agency engaged in a conspiracy from 2014 to the present that was funded by Yevgeniy Viktorovich Prigozhin and companies he controlled, including Concord Management and Consulting and Concord Catering.

Beyond already known allegations related to Russians creating false U.S. personas on social media, it alleges the Russian nationals traveled, or attempted to travel, to the U.S. Aleksandra Yuryevna Krylova and Anna Vladislavovna Bogacheva stopped in Nevada, California, New Mexico, Colorado, Illinois, Michigan, Louisiana, Texas, and New York to “gather intelligence.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

OK, other than sanctioning businesses these people own, how, please, does Meuller expect to prosecute these people, when it is a darn near moral certainty that Russia will not extradite them for court appearances in the US?!?

Is this not a rather pyrrhic victory for Meuller, when he knows he cannot prosecute, and so far, I can see nothing that even smacks of being "evidence" which ties these individuals to the Russian government.

That is what Meuller, with the millions of dollars spent on this investigation, so far has been incabable of proving.

And unless he can and will prove a true Russian government connection to this infowar, I would politely suggest that he hold off on sanctioning the country of Russia per se.

Trump’s New US Health Care Plan Unveiled…

US Health Care CANNOT be fixed without reining in Big Pharma. Trump is well on the way to doing just that. We only have to look at what Donald recently did to the “Opioid Drug”, and the “Generic Drug” Industries to see EXACTLY where he is headed – drug company leaders are going to jail, and their greed schemes destroyed..

The new US Health Care situation will be moving from a total dependence on drugs (there is a drug for every ill…) to something totally different – a system where health professionals ACTUALLY listen to the patient to find out what EXACTLY is causing their problems rather than simply prescribing some overly-expensive drug to mask the symptoms, but not solve the problems.

I will show you EXACTLY what this means to Americans just below.

New Utah Law Would Expand Raw Milk Sales From Farms and Markets to Mobile Trucks

By Michael Maharrey

Yesterday, a Utah Senate committee passed a bill would expand raw milk sales in the state. Passage into law would take an important step toward rejecting a federal prohibition scheme in effect.

...The proposed law would also allow licensed producers to sell raw milk from a mobile refrigerated truck where the raw milk is maintained at 41 degrees Fahrenheit or a lower temperature...

Liquor Up Those S.O.B.s: NFL Stars Savor The Stolen Wine Of Palestine

Seven American football players landed in Tel Aviv this week before being whisked away for propaganda purposes to “Greater Israel,” that is to say the occupied West Bank and the occupied Golan Heights. A trip to occupied East Jerusalem is scheduled for later in the visit.

A similar effort last February backfired with National Football League players such as brothers Martellus and Michael Bennett speaking out against being used.

Michael Bennett tweeted that he would “not be used in such a manner” and that when he did visit the region it would be not only to see Israel, but the West Bank and Gaza “so I can see how the Palestinians, who have called this land home for thousands of years, live their lives.”

This year, however, organizer America’s Voices in Israel kept the tour under wraps until the group landed.

BEX ALERT - Mueller surprise leads with Russian indictments first

***
This of course coming out on a Friday is intended to dominate the weekend news. It also gives anyone on the US that has not come in from the cold, that they may only have this weekend to do so.
***
-The indictment provided powerful new evidence that a Russian election-tampering plot, which Trump has repeatedly denied, not only took place but involved an elaborate conspiracy going back to at least 2014.
-The indictment supports the US intelligence community assessment that the Russian plot was substantial and is ongoing, and not Trump’s contention last May that “this Russia thing with Trump and Russia is a made-up story.”
-The indictment does not name any US citizens as alleged co-conspirators, or assert that any Americans knew of the plot. But the indictment does document contacts by the conspirators with “unwitting members, volunteers and supporters of the Trump campaign.”
***
-The indictment does not contend that Russian tampering swayed the 2016 presidential election>>>

Moscow Never 'Bet' on US Election

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said Russia was never a "hostage" to expectations of Donald Trump's presidency in the United States, suggestions that Moscow bet on him at the 2016 election and lost are speculation.

"I would not say that we were hostage to some expectations. There is much speculation at the moment on the issue of Russia ‘betting’ on Trump and losing," Lavrov told Euronews, Sputnik reported.

The Minister added that a number of Russian politicians and activists had indeed made statements in support of Trump's presidency, however the country's leadership had never placed any stake on any candidates.

Sanctions' Thirst: US Politicians Call for Response Over Alleged Vote Meddling

The US Justice Department filed charges against more than a dozen Russian persons and entities for trying to influence the 2016 US presidential contest which prompted cries for more sanctions on Moscow and demands for better election security.

The defendants intentionally conspired with each other to defraud the United States by undermining the democratic process in the country, the court document added.
The Russian individuals engaged in organizing rallies and paid Americans to participate in political activities and promote campaigns. The defendants communicated with members of Trump's campaign who were unaware of their motives, according to the indictment.

Israel A Leading Tax Haven

***
It makes new immigrants and returning ex-pats living abroad at least 10 years exempt from taxes on foreign assets for 10 years - whatever their source. Other Israeli citizens are taxed on all their income - whether earned domestically or abroad.

The law turned Israel into a money/laundering tax haven for super-rich Jews living abroad, encouraging aliyah, emigration to Israel, making it worth their while financially.

The capital gains exemption is the most attractive part of the law, a major incentive to emigrate, foreign assets of super-wealthy immigrants shielded from taxes

"Tapes Depict Proposal to Thwart
Bomb Used in Trade Center Blast"

By Ralph Blumenthal

Law-enforcement officials were told that terrorists were building a bomb that was eventually used to blow up the World Trade Center, and they planned to thwart the plotters by secretly substituting harmless powder for the explosives, an informer said after the blast.

FLASHBACK:Government agents 'directly involved' in most high-profile US terror plots

Nearly all of the highest-profile domestic terrorism plots in the United States since 9/11 featured the "direct involvement" of government agents or informants, a new report says.

Feb 16 18:52

FBI organizes almost all terror plots in the US

The Federal Bureau of Investigation employs upwards of 15,000 undercover agents today, ten times what they had on the roster back in 1975.

If you think that’s a few spies too many — spies earning as much as $100,000 per assignment — one doesn’t have to go too deep into their track record to see their accomplishments. Those agents are responsible for an overwhelming amount of terrorist stings that have stopped major domestic catastrophes in the vein of 9/11 from happening on American soil.

Another thing those agents are responsible for, however, is plotting those very schemes.

FLASHBACK:Terrorist Plots, Hatched by the F.B.I.

THE United States has been narrowly saved from lethal terrorist plots in recent years — or so it has seemed. A would-be suicide bomber was intercepted on his way to the Capitol; a scheme to bomb synagogues and shoot Stinger missiles at military aircraft was developed by men in Newburgh, N.Y.; and a fanciful idea to fly explosive-laden model planes into the Pentagon and the Capitol was hatched in Massachusetts.

But all these dramas were facilitated by the F.B.I., whose undercover agents and informers posed as terrorists offering a dummy missile, fake C-4 explosives, a disarmed suicide vest and rudimentary training. Suspects naïvely played their parts until they were arrested.

‘Black Panther’ Review: The Movie’s Hero is Trump, the Villain is Black Lives Matter

A former director of the United States Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), John Brennan, has called on US lawmakers to pass legislation “to prevent access to semiautomatic weapons."

Brennan said on Thursday, a day after a bloody shooting incident at a South Florida high school, that it was imperative to address the “scourge of gun violence in the US.

Over 5,000 elementary school kids suspended in Toronto for out-of-date immunization records

A total of 5,063 public elementary students were suspended in Toronto this school year after getting caught in what one doctor called, a “1970s-style, cumbersome process” over immunization records.

The number of students suspended amounted to 7 per cent of the 73,262 elementary students in 586 Toronto public elementary schools assessed by Toronto Public Health from July to mid-December 2017. That’s a jump from 5.6 per cent last year.

“All of the students who were suspended either didn’t meet the immunization requirements as they were not up-to-date, their records were not filed on time, or they did not have a valid exemption,” said Dr. Vinita Dubey, associate medical officer at Toronto Public Health.

Big Pharma spent $10mn promoting opioid drug use to patients

Drug companies spent nearly $10 million promoting opioid drug use to patient advocacy groups and other nonprofit organisations between 2012 and 2017. More than 42,000 Americans died from opioid overdoses in 2016.
Physicians affiliated with patient advocacy groups accepted more than $1.6 million in payments from five manufacturers between 2013 and 2018, according to a new report released Monday by a Senator Claire McCaskill (D-Missouri), top Democrat on the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee.

The report exposes financial connections between opioid manufacturers and advocacy groups, and points to close alignment between “medical culture and industry goals,” regarding narcotic painkiller distribution.

“The fact that these same manufacturers provided millions of dollars to the groups described below suggests, at the very least, a direct link between corporate donations and the advancement of opioids-friendly messaging”, the report states.

FLASHBACK - FBI Investigation of Espionage, Blackmail Charges in Awan Case Blocked By Obama DOJ Appointee Who Worked for Holder & Lynch

Federal agents believe the Justice Department is meddling in the FBI’s efforts to expand the Imran Awan and Hina Alvi investigation in what appears to be a blatant attempt to shield Democratic members of Congress entangled in the burgeoning criminal case.

That’s because the U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia — Channing Phillips — who is running point on the case is likewise a Democrat, appointed by President Barack Obama. Phillips was appointed just months before the grand jury convened to weigh evidence in the Awan case.

FBI agents feel they have amassed crucial evidence to expand the Awan case into a wider investigation of possible espionage and blackmail but the Bureau is getting push back from the US Attorney’s Office in D.C., federal sources confirmed.

White House Threatens ‘Consequences’ For 2017 Russian Cyberattack

***
A White House statement on Thursday said: “In June 2017, the Russian military launched the most destructive and costly cyber-attack in history. The attack, dubbed ‘NotPetya,’ quickly spread worldwide, causing billions of dollars in damage across Europe, Asia, and the Americas. It was part of the Kremlin’s ongoing effort to destabilize Ukraine and demonstrates ever more clearly Russia’s involvement in the ongoing conflict. This was also a reckless and indiscriminate cyber-attack that will be met with international consequences.”

The announcement came hours after the UK government made a similar statement.

Those consequences could include a retaliatory attack or sanctions>>>
