100 Percent Wishful Thinking: The Green-Energy Cornucopia

At the People’s Climate March back last spring, all along that vast river of people, the atmosphere was electric. But electricity was also the focus of too many of the signs and banners. Yes, here and there were solid “System Change, Not Climate Change” – themed signs and banners. But the bulk of slogans on display asserted or implied that ending the climate emergency and avoiding climatic catastrophes like those that would occur a few months later—hurricanes Harvey and Irma and the mega-wildfires in the U.S. West—will be a simple matter of getting Donald Trump out of office and converting to 100-percent renewable energy.

Yemen's Houthi leader says could target Saudi oil tankers if Hodeida attacked

Yemen's Houthi leader Abdel-Malek al-Houthi said on Thursday his group could target Saudi oil tankers should Saudi Arabia attack Yemen's main port at Hodeida.

"We could target Saudi oil tankers and we could do anything, we have not done this before," he said.

In a televised speech, the leader also said his group's ballistic missiles were capable of reaching the United Arab Emirates' capital of Abu Dhabi and anywhere inside Saudi Arabia.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A couple of years ago, Saudi Arabia's Prince Salman must have thought that a military attack against Yemen, to eradicate the Shia Houthi rebels there, would be a "walk in the park" for the Saudi military.

However, thousands of deaths of innocents, and immesurable joint Saudi-US warcrimes later, coupled with successful attacks against Saudi Arabia proper, if he is in any way sane, he may just be thinking differently.

I have no way in which to estimate the Houthis' weapons capabilities; but this rhetoric demonstrates that they are in this battle for the long haul.

Why Traitor Vice President Mike Pence Has to Go

One of the biggest mistakes President Trump did was extending an Olive Branch to the establishment wing of the Republican party. One of those mistakes trying to appeal to the establishment wing of the GOP after securing the nomination was choosing former Governor of Indiana Mike Pence to be his running mate.

To me, you cannot be open borders, amnesty to illegal aliens and to be free trade and still call himself a born-again Christian. He says one thing and does the opposite. I do not trust the man. He is just Republican in name only.

Spain threatens to arrest over 700 Catalan pro-referendum mayors

- Spain's public prosecutor on Wednesday ordered a criminal probe of over 700 Catalan mayors who are cooperating with an October 1 independence referendum deemed illegal by Madrid.

The move increases the pressure on Catalan officials just one day before the pro-separatist camp officially kicks off its referendum campaign in the Mediterranean port of Tarragona.

Furious at the decision to instigate a probe, Catalan municipal associations called on all the region's mayors to protest in Barcelona on Saturday to show their "rejection of a Spanish judicial system that goes after the media, ballot papers, ballot boxes... and now mayors".

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF the Spanish government believes that such actions are going to stop the "Catalexit" from Spain, there are seriously underestimating the Catalonians.

OIL RICH VENEZUELA STOPS ACCEPTING DOLLARS

Yesterday Venezuela temporarily suspended the sale of U.S. dollars through its Dicom auction system. This (and other moves) was in response to U.S. sanctions put in place by the Trump administration.

Trump claims the sanctions are there to punish the country's autocratic leaders. Maduro claims Washington's move was part of an “economic war”.

This morning The Wall Street Journal reports that the Venezuela is already telling oil traders not to accept the US currency.

Oil traders who export Venezuelan crude or import oil products into the country have begun converting their invoices to euros.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unfortunately, Maduro is correct about sanctions being a component to an economic war the Unhinged Surveilled States of Amerika against Venezuela, but is only one of the pieces.

And frequently, economic sanctions are a prelude to a shooting war.

One has to wonder if the next phase has American "boots on the ground" invading, to keep those huge oil reserves away from Russia.

Never mind the press generated threats of North Korea or Syria. We have real threats right here on American soil that are determined to achieve their objectives by any means necessary. They are driven by ideology. They are highly motivated, well funded and organized. They are not playing games. They are serious and waiting patiently for the opportunity to make their move.

Catalan independence: Police told to seize ballot boxes

Spain's Constitutional Court has suspended the law that was to become Catalonia's transitional constitution if it declared independence. Prosecutors in Barcelona have ordered police to seize election resources.

The Madrid-based court preventatively suspended a second law relating to Catalonian independence on Tuesday, news agencies quoting unnamed Spanish court sources reported, adding another legal hurdle for separatists.

Prosecutors in Catalonia also on Tuesday ordered police to seize ballot boxes, election fliers or other items that could be used in the banned referendum, news agency AFP reported.

The court, Spain's highest authority on such matters, had already suspended the law and decree calling for a referendum on Catalonia's independence to be held on October 1.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Oh, THAT is really going to go over well with the Catalonian people!!

Tens of thousands take to the streets to protest Macron's labour reforms

The first day of major demonstrations against French President Emmanuel Macron's changes to France's enshrined labour code saw tens of thousands of protesters take to the streets on Tuesday.

In a day of nationwide strikes and rallies that was seen as an important test for Macron - who has staked his presidency on overhauling France's sluggish economy - France's biggest trade union, the hardline CGT, was keen to show it could mobilise its supporters in large numbers.

On Tuesday evening the union reported that some 60,000 protesters had turned out in Paris, while the police put the figure at a more modest 24,000.

The numbers are being closely observed as they are considered an important indicator of the strength of resistance to the reforms.

Culturally Responsive Teaching: connecting education to communities of color begins with Truth they are ongoing targets of illegal US .01% rogue state empire

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

“One of the sayings in our country is Ubuntu – the essence of being human. Ubuntu speaks particularly about the fact that you can't exist as a human being in isolation. It speaks about our interconnectedness. You can't be human all by yourself, and when you have this quality – Ubuntu – you are known for your generosity. We think of ourselves far too frequently as just individuals, separated from one another, whereas you are connected and what you do affects the whole World. When you do well, it spreads out; it is for the whole of humanity.” ~ Desmond Tutu, 2008

JESSE JACKSON: DISSENT IS A PATRIOTIC TRADITION

Kaepernick stands in a proud history of African-American athletes who have used their prominence to protest racism at home and unjust wars abroad. They have chosen to speak out at the height of their powers and in their prime money-making years. Often they have paid a high price personally, in their careers, their finances, their stature. And yet in the end, their sacrifice helped make this country better.

Muhammad Ali opposed the Vietnam War and was prosecuted for refusing to be inducted into the armed forces, stripped of his title and barred from fighting. He lost some of the best years of his boxing life, but his protest helped build the antiwar movement that eventually brought that tragic and misbegotten war to an end.

Making Disasters Worse — Ron Paul on government aid.

Following natural disasters, individuals who attempt to return to their own property — much less try to repair the damage — without government permission can be arrested and thrown in jail. Federal, state, and local officials often hinder or even stop voluntary rescue and relief efforts. The outpouring of private giving and volunteer relief efforts we have witnessed over the past week shows that the American people can effectively respond to natural disasters if the government would get out of their way.

The Book”The Trump Prophesies” A Honest Review

This is an authentic book that is genuine. This is not a fortune teller book looking into the future. It is not written to make the average christian to feel warm and fuzzy in a comfortable life. It is written for the motivated disciple of Jesus who wants to take ground back that was lost by sharing the good news of Jesus. It is not a book to make the Sunday pew warming experience more meaningful. This book is not meant for those who are in the comfort zone in the four walls of the church. It is a book to spiritually equip the member of the body of Christ for individual ministry. To prepare the believer to be commissioned into the Army of God who are ready to get their hands dirty in the endeavor to spread the Christian faith and reclaim America for Jesus.

Labor Day 2017: American workers looted by .01% lying War Criminals: $6.5 trillion ‘lost’ by Dept of Defense as political ‘leaders’ & corporate media withhold $1,000,000 per US household from monetary reform and public banking

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

“The only thing new in the world is the history you don’t know.” – President Harry Truman, Plain Speaking: An Oral Biography of Harry S. Truman (1974) by Merle Miller, pg. 26.

Labor Day is the celebration of American workers’ limited victories over oligarchs to raise wages and working conditions above conditions of work animals. Because US .01% oligarchs control corporate media (including public education texts), most Americans are unaware that “leaders” “celebrate” Labor Day in lip-service only while engaged in the ongoing business of psychopathically looting American workers in the annual trillions.

The above factual claims require zero belief, but is the obvious conclusion from the objective and independently-verifiable data as this article explains, documents, and proves.

Martin Luther King Jr. – The Power of Non-violence

As an astute observer of history I can’t help but recognize that there is a pattern playing out again before our very eyes that we have seen before. A series of events that seam to be pushing the country ever further apart. This pattern is one of division and control. As I have said many times on my radio broadcast, the most effective way to bring this country down is to rip it apart from the inside. To have it tear itself apart piece by piece via the citizens themselves. It is for this reason I have taken part of an interview Martin Luther King Jr. did as well as parts from two speeches he gave and put them together so you can all hear from Reverend King himself about the power of non-violence in activism. His words echo through time from the 1960s straight through to today. We would all be wise to pay heed to what Reverend King had to say.

Fitch Downgrades Venezuela’s Rating to CC, Notes Great Risk of Default

"Fitch Ratings has taken the following rating actions on Venezuela's sovereign ratings: long-term foreign and local currency IDRs downgraded to 'CC' from 'CCC'; senior unsecured debt downgraded to ‘CC’ from ‘CCC’; short-term foreign and local currency IDRs affirmed at 'C'; country ceiling downgraded to 'CC' from 'CCC,'" Fitch said in a statement.
The agency pointed out that the threat of default was caused by the new US sanctions against Venezuela.

"Venezuela's downgrade reflect Fitch's view that a default is probable given the further reduction in financing options for the Government of Venezuela following the imposition of additional sanctions on Venezuela by the US government on Aug. 25, 2017," the statement added.

The sanctions ban US citizens from or entities from a number of financial transactions with the Venezuelan government of the country’s PDVSA oil and gas company.

They want to build a new Underground Railroad to free people from detention, incarceration, deportation, or white supremacist violence. They welcome "comrades" to aid in their efforts to build "organized defense groups, local councils, and regional/national councils."

They're calling for "self-defense," "revolutionary justice," and "expropriation.

The portal purports to use “600 Twitter accounts linked to Russian influence efforts online” to prove how Moscow is trying to sow seeds of doubt in the Western political system, via the social network.

How We Know The So-Called “Civil War” Was Not Over Slavery

Paul Craig Roberts

When I read Professor Thomas DiLorenzo’s article ( http://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2017/08/21/lincoln-myth-ideological-co... ) the question that lept to mind was, “How come the South is said to have fought for slavery when the North wasn’t fighting against slavery?”

Two days before Lincoln’s inauguration as the 16th President, Congress, consisting only of the Northern states, passed overwhelmingly on March 2, 1861, the Corwin Amendment that gave constitutional protection to slavery. Lincoln endorsed the amendment in his inaugural address, saying “I have no objection to its being made express and irrevocable.”

If the South’s real concern was maintaining slavery, the South would not have turned down the constitutional protection of slavery offered them on a silver platter by Congress and the President. Clearly, for the South also the issue was not slavery.

A total eclipse of SANITY, engineered by a dangerous, globalist-controlled media

A total eclipse of SANITY: America under the spell of mass hysteria engineered by a dangerous, globalist-controlled media
Saturday, August 19, 2017 by: Mike Adams

The total eclipse of sanity is now under way across America. Mass hysteria has gripped the minds of the gullible, many of whom now hallucinate their “reality” on a moment-by-moment basis.

Before the Charlottesville violence, the entire Left of America was hallucinating Russians behind every corner. Now, they’re hallucinating Neo-Nazis everywhere they look. This isn’t hyperbole, either: The hysterical Left is quite literally hallucinating almost everything they now believe: That all Trump supporters are Hitler-saluting Nazis; that all White people are racists; that America is still a slave-ownership nation; that Civil War statues might come to life and put them all back in chains, and other absurdities.

Something stinks about Charlottesville

By Russ Vaughn

Evidence is turning up from, of all places, the Southern Poverty Law Center, as well as Breitbart and others, that this character, Jason Kessler, who organized the suspicious and supposed Alt-Right demonstration in Charlottesville, Va. that blew up in everyone's face, is a cunning lefty holdover from the Occupy Wall Street movement and a former Barack Obama supporter. I smell Soros money, sabotage, and Democrat dirty tricks here.

The reporting of Kessler's background, as well as that of Charlottesville mayor and Democrat activist Mike Signer and Vice Mayor Wes Bellamy, has convinced me that Charlottesville was a Democratic Party black operation, planned, organized, and carried out to its successful conclusion, to make the media portray all these conservative whites as stupid, racist, and violent.

The Death of a Nation

Every living nation needs symbols. They tell us who we are as one people, in what we believe, and on what basis we organize our common life. This fact seems to be very clear to the current leadership in Russia, particularly to President Vladimir Putin, in restoring and reunifying a country rent by three generations of Red and White enmity to achieve a national synthesis. With regard to things spiritual, this meant first of all the world-historic reunification of the Russian Orthodox Church, between the Moscow Patriarchate and the New York-based Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia. It also meant the rebuilding of the Cathedral of Christ the Savior dynamited by the communists 1931, not coincidentally the recent target for desecration by degenerates hailed by western “democracy” advocates. Civic and military symbols matter as well.

TEACHER ARRESTED FOR ASSAULTING WHITE NATIONALIST: VIOLENCE AGAINST FAR-RIGHT ‘NOT A CRIME’

The Berkeley area teacher who pummeled a white nationalist last year, and just recently was arrested on assault charges for that attack, is claiming that “standing up to fascism is not a crime.”

By Any Means Necessary’s Yvette Felarca, who teaches in the Berkeley Unified School District, said at her arraignment that “Standing up against the rise of Nazism […] in this country is not a crime,” and added “We have the right to defend ourselves.”

As reported by The College Fix, Felarca was caught on video in June of last year “punch[ing] the man in the stomach repeatedly, before throwing him to the ground.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

My dear Ms. Falarca, a word please: it appears that your alleged "standing up to fascism" always translates into the person whose ideology you cannot stand, getting physically beaten.

I would like to invoke the memory of the late Dr. Martin Luther King, one of my greatest heroes of the 20th century, who created massive positive change without every hitting anyone or without firing a single shot.

Had this man not been a Christian, a pacifist, and a great admirer of Gandhi, God only knows in what direction the civil rights movement in this country could have gone.

What you have done, Ms. Falarca, is to encourage mob violence, which may ultimately result in the suspension of the Constitution, and the imposition of martial law; is that your design intent, when you physically beat up people with whom you do not agree?!?

Or did you not realise that your actions may well have these consequences?!?

Are you not constantly advocating against bullying in your classroom?!? Bullying outside the classroom also has no moral justification either; and you are deluding yourself, if you think that there is a difference in your actions, when you punched a man in the stomach, then threw him to the ground.

With potential threat of US civil war, perhaps staged by .01% oligarchs fearing their discovery and arrests, let's consider Socrates' analysis to a similar challenge. He explains from my 2016 "interview" with him:

Who was responsible for the violence in Charlottesville? Here's what witnesses say

The clashes that broke out over the weekend at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Va., have become a new touchstone in the nation’s long-running debate over racism, free speech and violence.

One woman was killed and many more injured when a car, allegedly driven by a rally participant, sped into a crowd of anti-racism protesters. Two state troopers monitoring the action died in a helicopter crash later in the day, though no foul play was suspected.

The event quickly took on enormous political importance as Democrats and Republicans alike denounced the violence and the white supremacist views espoused at the far-right rally. President Trump has also denounced the racist groups, but he suggests that anti-racism counter-demonstrators share some of the blame. On Tuesday, he said “both sides” were responsible for the bloodshed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In looking/listening at the reports of this incident, President Trump was absolutely correct in his assessment; both the Neo-Nazis and Antifa bore responsibility for the deaths and injuries here.
