True Lies: US Spins Reports to Downplay Responsibility for Civilian Massacres

At the Pentagon regime’s department of lies, damn lies, and fake statistics, it is better to offer no excuse than a bad one. The cabal of US war criminals are still under the illusion that if they tell a big enough lie and tell it frequently enough, it will be believed by the international community. Take, for instance, high civilian casualties in Iraq and Syria, or in Yemen and Afghanistan. That the Pentagon has a habit of dramatically undercounting the number of civilians it has killed in these countries is increasingly itself an understatement. With heavy documentation of scores of civilians being killed in the month of February alone, the Pentagon is desperate to cut out its work for keeping this month’s civilian death report low. But it is wishful thinking.

Syrian people do not want Assad as leader: U.S. envoy to U.N

Another really bad cabinet pick on Trump's part.The right hand doesn't know what the left hand is doing!

The United States does not believe that the Syrian people want President Bashar al-Assad as their leader any longer, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said on Monday.

"We have no love for Assad. We've made that very clear. We think that he has been a hindrance to peace for a long time. He's a war criminal. What he's done to his people is nothing more than disgusting," she said.

Haley was asked about U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson's remarks in the Turkish capital Ankara on Thursday, in which he said that Assad's status would be decided by the Syrian people.

Several dead in St. Petersburg, Russia, subway explosion

The Russians know who is behind international terrorism.

April 3 (UPI) -- An explosion in Russia on Monday struck between St. Petersburg's Sennaya Ploschad and Tekhnologichesky Institut subway stations, killing at least 9 and injuring several others, emergency officials said.

Russia's National Anti-Terrorism Committee, or NAC, said nine people died and 20 people were injured in the explosion, while a spokesman for St. Petersburg's governor said at least 10 people were killed and 50 people were injured. Russia's Ministry of Health said 11 people died in the attack.

‘Maybe worse than Cold War’: Kremlin spokesman on US-Russia relations

Trump has blown it. This is Putin's personal spokesman.Russia will survive a nuclear war with the US. The USA will not.

Ties between Russia and the US are probably worse than in the Cold War, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said in an interview with ABC News, adding that the blatant anti-Russia propaganda has led to Americans seeing Russian hackers “in every fridge.”

When asked if current US-Russia relations could be described as “a new Cold War,” Peskov was not at all ambiguous.

“New Cold War? Well, maybe even worse,” the Russian President’s spokesman told ABC News. Addressing repeated claims that Moscow somehow meddled in the 2016 US election, Peskov blasted the allegations as libelous.

Apologies for torture seem to be the hardest words

Despite clear evidence that they are complicit in your torture, none of them is ever held to account. Instead, they receive promotions, act as media consultants, and fearlessly await a thick pension at the end of their bloodstained careers. The immunity they enjoy in your case is the same immunity they are entitled to should they set someone else up for torture. After all, legislation on the books -- as well as their well-tailored self-image as do-gooders on the global stage -- grants them a free pass for whatever they do.

Top U.S. Commander: Iran’s Heightened Threat Since Nuclear Deal May Require Military Action

YUP! Trump is a big idiot!

WASHINGTON, D.C. — The U.S. needs to consider military action to disrupt Iran’s malign activities in the Middle East, North Africa, and South Asia, which have intensified since the Islamic Republic signed a nuclear deal with world powers in 2015, a top American commander warned American lawmakers.

Panic spreads in Iraq, Syria as record numbers of civilians are reported killed in U.S. strikes

A sharp rise in the number of civilians reported killed in U.S.-led airstrikes in Iraq and Syria is spreading panic, deepening mistrust and triggering accusations that the United States and its partners may be acting without sufficient regard for lives of noncombatants.

The increase comes as local ground forces backed by air support from a U.S.-led coalition close in on the Islamic State’s two main urban bastions — Raqqa in Syria and Mosul in Iraq.

What Is Trump Thinking? President Gives CIA New Authority To Authorize Drone Strikes

By Brandon Turbeville

The testy nature of the public relationship between Donald Trump and the CIA is well known with the agency putting forth a number of unproven and laughably ridiculous assertions that Trump is working with Russia as well as the President publicly criticizing the intelligence community for these claims. More serious, however, is the fact that the CIA monitored and essentially ousted former National Security Advisor, Michael Flynn.

So with Trump engaging in a relatively public and behind-the-scenes war with the CIA, it may come as a surprise that Trump has given the agency even more authority to conduct secret drone strikes...

Despite Campaign Promises, Trump Set To Outdo Obama On Military Adventurism

When asked about Trump attitudes toward war, MIT professor and renowned linguist and political analyst Noam Chomsky told MintPress News that the idea that he was an anti-war candidate “was based on his criticisms of the Iraq and Libya attacks (which, contrary to his lies, he supported) and his ambiguous statements about reducing tensions with Russia – a good thing, if he meant it. But his actual policies are extremely dangerous.”

“[This includes] the sharp increase in the military budget, the weakening of restrictions on drone strikes, and the wild charges about Iran,” Chomsky said, adding that what really worries those who pay attention to these issues “is his megalomania and unpredictability…we know how someone who goes berserk over minor slights might react in a moment of crisis.”

Defense Secretary Seeks Deeper US Involvement in Yemen War

Defense Secretary James Mattis is said to be pushing for the White House to remove all restrictions, placed during the waning months of President Obama’s presidency, on US military support for the Saudi invasion of Yemen, seeking deeper direct US involvement in fighting the Yemeni Shi’ites.

Mattis is said to be pushing National Security Adviser HR McMaster to agree that US support would combat the “common threat” the US and Saudi Arabia face in Yemen, which appears to be continued Shi’ite autonomy in the northern half of the country.

The US, of course, has already been directly involved in the Saudi war in Yemen from the beginning, providing in-air refueling for Saudi warplanes and participating in a naval blockade that has caused massive food shortages across northern Yemen.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Sec-Def Mattis, a word please: by participating in the Saudi genocide in Yemen, which has involved the assassination of wide swathes of civilians, including children; starving Yemeni children to death with malnutrition from the port blockades, and the poisoning of children in the womb through the Saudi's use of depleted uranium weapons, the United States government is complicit in its war crimes.

Mike and I are way too poor, and too old, to be accepted as a citizen of any other country at this stage in our lives; because right now, if Mike and I could, we would!

That being said, I find it morally reprehensible that both you, and President Trump, have absolutely no qualm of conscience about continuing to aid and abet these horrific acts on the part of the Saudi military.

Armor Piercing, Toxic Shocking – the US’s Ongoing Depleted Uranium Manifesto

February 28th, 2016 marks the 25th anniversary of the end of Operation Desert Storm, the combat phase of the Gulf War, the first war with Iraq. This conflict was a turning point in US and world history, but the ensuing wars in Afghanistan and Iraq turned these war theaters into toxic waste lands. Desert Storm ushered in the widespread use of depleted uranium (DU) ammunition, a topic that few official spokespersons want to talk on the record. Now Syria is fast becoming the latest toxic battlefield where the “real weapons” of mass destruction are being deployed. Even though the Pentagon has professed a reversal of decision on the use of DU munitions, the clear cut evidence still does not support any real effort to reduce their indiscriminate use. It should be noted that US and UK forces during Desert Storm, openly acknowledged having fired some 286,000 kilograms of DU shells in between 1990 and 1991.

Increase in Infant deformities in Yemen suggests USA/UK has supplied Saudi with depleted uranium weapons

Doctors in Yemen have been warning about the rise in stillbirths and deformities as a result of the war for some time.

“Fetal malformations could occur due to several reasons, including mothers’ diseases and subsequent viral infection of the faction and/or poor nutrition,” Wafa al-Mamari, an obstetrician at al-Rahma Hospital in northern Sana’a, told Press TV in July.

American Genocide with DU Deforms Afghanistan's Unborn Children

The staff of American USSR has learned in a book by Dr. Mohammad Daud Miraki and reported with a graphic video of deformed babies at Press TV that The United States' use of radioactive munitions in Afghanistan has destroyed the people's health and mutilated the genetic future of the country, Press TV reports.
Dr. Mohammad Daud Miraki, the author of Afghanistan After Democracy: The Untold Story Through Photographic Images, told Press TV's Kabul correspondent on Monday that the US has committed horrific crimes against the people of Afghanistan.

He said the US used depleted uranium in the country and Afghan babies were being born with severe deformities.

Exposure to depleted uranium causes genetic damage, birth defects, cancer, diabetes, immune system damage, and other serious health problems.

Depleted Uranium trans-generational curse

“It’s actually very difficult to decontaminate an area that’s been affected by depleted uranium, because it spreads so uniformly across the area and in the form of these very fine particles.

“So, it’s not a case of going somewhere and finding something that’s radioactive and removing it.

“You can do that, but the thing that are causing the problem is the inhalation of these dusts. And once the dust is created, it goes all over the place.

“The damage that’s been done to the DNA, you can’t clean that up, it’s already there.
“The continuing level of congenital malformations and cancer presumably is an indicator of the fact that the genome of these people has been affected, and that’s like a sort of trans-generational curse that will go on for a very long time, for generations,”

Daesh, Creature of the West

According to Saudi intelligence, Daesh was invented by the US government – in Camp Bacca, near the Kuwait border, as many will remember — to essentially finish off the Shiite-majority Nouri al-Maliki government in Baghdad.

It didn’t happen this way, of course. Then, years later, in the summer of 2014, Daesh routed the Iraqi Army on its way to conquer Mosul. The Iraqi Army fled. Daesh operatives then annexed ultra-modern weapons that took US instructors from six to twelve months to train the Iraqis in and…surprise! Daesh incorporated the weapons in their arsenals in 24 hours.

In the end, Shea frankly admitted to the source that Gen David Petraeus, conductor of the much-lauded 2007 surge, had trained these Sunnis now part of Daesh in Anbar province in Iraq.

US Will Keep Ground Troops in Libya

In a press briefing at the Pentagon today, African Command leader Gen. Thomas Waldhauser announced that the US intends to keep ground troops in Libya for the foreseeable future to support “friendly forces,” and to “degrade” the ISIS forces that remain in the country.

Waldhauser did not specify how many US troops are in Libya now, or how many will stay, but did estimate that there were less than 200 ISIS fighters left in Libya. The US had announced the end of the anti-ISIS campaign in Libya back in December, but never fully withdrew from the country.

The US forces were in Libya trying to help the “unity” government defeat ISIS in the city of Sirte. US officials repeatedly claimed the city was totally surrounded, and that no ISIS fighters would get away, though when the fighting finally ended, a substantial number of ISIS fighters did in fact get away.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation: this is "military-speak" for the reality that the US government is never leaving Libya because of the oil and the oil pipelines.

Trump’s son-in-law funds Israeli settlement projects

Big conflict of interest for Kushner and Trump!

In recent years, the parents of Jared Kushner, the son-in-law and trusted confidant of US President-elect Donald Trump, have donated tens of thousands of dollars to organisations and institutions located in illegal West Bank settlements, according to their tax forms.

Kushner’s family donates a few million dollars a year on average to charitable causes through the Charles and Seryl Kushner Foundation, which Jared sits on the board of along with his brother and two sisters. The foundation was established in 1997.Another key beneficiary of Kushner charity in Israel is the Israeli army. Between 2011 and 2013, the foundation donated a total of $315,000 to Friends of the IDF, on whose board Jared serves.

FEDERAL JURY RULES IN FAVOR OF TORTURED TO DEATH ARMY VETERAN. FAMILY AWARDED $10 MILLION (GRAPHIC VIDEO)

A federal jury has ruled in favor of the estate of an Army veteran who died on the floor of a jail in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Elliott Williams broke his neck and was lying naked and paralyzed for 51 hours. The county is ordered to pay the family $10 million.

On Monday, the jury returned after deliberating for around 10 hours and found that Williams’ civil rights were violated by both the Tulsa County Sheriff’s Office and former Sheriff Stanley Glanz, who was ordered to pay the family an additional $250,000 in punitive damages from his own pocket.

Williams, an Army veteran, was arrested by Owasso police after suffering a mental breakdown. His only alleged crime was a misdemeanor for obstruction, but Williams died in custody before the formal charges could be filed.

During the first day of the trial, jurors saw the last 51 hours of William’s life captured by the jail’s surveillance cameras.

Did The U.S. Really Bomb A Mosque In Syria? Many Factors At Play In Latest Reports

By Brandon Turbeville

If new reports are accurate, the Trump administration is now doing all it can to not only continue Obama’s war crimes in Syria but apparently to do so in the most visible fashion possible. Only a few days after mobilizing U.S. troops in Northern Syria near Manbij, the United States has allegedly launched airstrikes in al-Jineh under the guise of targeting terrorist organization, Ahrar al-Sham, an al-Qaeda affiliate. Instead of hitting terrorists, however, reports are suggesting that the U.S. simply blew up a mosque, killing around forty civilians...

Palestinian amputee, 14, recalls detention by Israeli forces: 'I wasn't afraid of being hit'

More troops arrived. Issa’s hands were finally shackled behind his back by force with three plastic handcuffs, and he was blindfolded. Two other, older boys were also arrested with him. Issa denies throwing stones at the soldiers. He says he was holding the bag with the pitas before he was arrested and that he was on his way back to his grandmother’s house.

Back on the street, says Issa, a soldier kicked his leg, wrenching loose the prosthesis. Issa fell to the ground, hands tied behind his back. The soldier recoiled in fright at the sight of the false leg. Issa somehow managed to get back up on his one good leg. Other soldiers had arrived in the meantime. One of them, Issa relates, asked him, “What happened to you?” To which he replied, “My leg left me.” “Why didn’t you say so before?” the soldier said and slapped him. The soldiers didn’t give him a chance to explain that he was disabled, Issa says.

Israeli Politician, Cabinet Minister Says Next War With Lebanon Should Target Civilian Infrastructure

By Brandon Turbeville

Recently elected Lebanese President Michel Aoun visited Cairo in February where he uttered words previously treated as an open secret by preceding presidents; namely, that Hezbollah is indeed a major part of the defense of the country. While other presidents have tended to skirt the issue, Aoun essentially acknowledged the close relationship between Lebanon the state and Hezbollah the militia. The relationship between Hezbollah and the Lebanese state is apparent for all to see, of course, with Hezbollah acting as the major deterrent to Israel’s aggression...

UN's food agency says over 60 percent of Yemenis face famine

The UN food agency has warned that over half of Yemenis are on the brink of famine as the Arab country continues to be hit by relentless Saudi airstrikes.

In a report issued on Wednesday, the World Food Programme (WFP) said that 60 percent of Yemenis, or 17 million people, were in “crisis” or “emergency” food situations.

"If humanitarian actors do not access all the people in need by the coming months, the situation may deteriorate dramatically," the report said.
The WFP warned that the provinces of Ta'izz and Hudaydah risked sinking into famine if they did not receive more aid.

The Trump Administration's Human-Rights Dilemma

President Donald Trump has demonstrated little interest in promoting human rights abroad. He was a dealmaker, focused on achieving concrete economic and security ends. Worrying about whether other peoples can, say, protest against their government doesn’t seem to concern him.

Ultimately, a foreign policy is sustainable only if it advances the interests of the people expected to pay and die for it. Protecting America—its population, territory, economic prosperity and constitutional liberties—is the government’s most important duty.
Nevertheless, that doesn’t bar Washington from attempting to advance human liberty in ways consistent with its larger responsibilities. Simply talking about the importance of governments respecting human life and dignity can help.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is a Biblical injunction about "reaping what you sow"; in the Middle East, by NOT emphasizing human rights, the US government is reaping a whirlwind of anti-US sentiment.

By supporting governments, militarily and financially, like Saudi Arabia; Bahrain; Egypt; and Turkey, which are suppressing their own people, the US government is setting the stage for deep radicalisation, if not revolution in those places.

Suppression only works so long, and then, BANG! You've got a coup on your hands, and an ensuing government which has a long memory for how the US government's support of former oppressive leaders destroyed life and limb.

Look at Iran's hatred for the US government, which the US government very much earned by overthrowing the duly elected President Mossadegh in 1953 in a CIA-orchestrated coup, replacing him with the Shaw of Iran.

The Shah's intelligence arm, the Savak, (which routinely tortured and imprisoned Iranians to keep his population always on the keening edge of fear) made the East German Stassi look like buttercups, in comparison.

So when the 1979 Iranian revolution happened, and the Shaw was booted out of the country, the US government was, as is usual, pathologically incapable of taking ANY responsibility whatsoever for creating the situation which caused the people to rebel against the tyranny of the Shaw, and condemned the Iranian people for having revolted against such a monster.

The US government has a deep, moral responsibility to encourage the observance of human rights; because when that does not happen, as the late President Kennedy Stated: "When peaceful revolution is impossible, violent revolution is inevitable."

‘Bomb the Sh*t Out of Them!’ – Trump Drones Yemen More in One Week Than Obama in a Year

Undeterred by the disastrous commando raid on Yemen in the first days of his Administration, where plenty of civilians were killed but the target got away, President Donald Trump has escalated US military involvement in the tragic Yemen conflict to an unprecedented level. In fact as Foreign Policy reports, the US President has bombed Yemen more in the past week than President Obama (no peacenik) has bombed in a year.

But although the US escalation in Yemen is sold back home as another aggressive front in the war against al-Qaeda, in fact US operations in Yemen are actually helping al-Qaeda as well as its chief sponsor, Saudi Arabia.

TRUMP ADMINISTRATION MOVES TO APPROVE NEW ARMS SALES TO SAUDI ARABIAN WAR CRIMINALS

First, here’s a little background from The Washington Post:

The State Department has approved a resumption of weapons sales that critics have linked to Saudi Arabia’s bombing of civilians in Yemen, a potential sign of reinvigorated U.S. support for the kingdom’s involvement in its neighbor’s ongoing civil war.

The proposal from the State Department would reverse a decision made late in the Obama administration to suspend the sale of precision guided munitions to Riyadh, which leads a mostly Arab coalition conducting airstrikes against Houthi rebels in Yemen.

While the U.S. military has provided support to the Saudi-led air campaign since 2015, including aerial refueling for Saudi jets and a U.S. advisory mission in the Saudi operations headquarters, the Obama administration sought to scale back that support last year amid alleged Saudi strikes on civilian targets.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

President Trump, a word here, please.

Collective punishment is defined as a war crime; by aiding, arming, and abetting the Saudis, the US government has become complicit in war crimes.

That you don't understand this, or do, and it doesn't matter, angers me to the core of my being.

Not only are the Saudi military killing innocent men, women, and children; they have also closed down the Yemeni ports, so no food aid can get in, and because of this, Yemeni children are literally starving to death.

Images: Yemeni children wounded and killed from Saudi airstrikes

Images: Yemeni children starving to death due to Saudi port blockades

But there is a much larger part of the puzzle here which needs to see the light of day.

The US now claims a Yemeni island as its own, and has built a huge naval base on it.

Map: Island of US military-occupied Yemeni Island of Socotra, and surrounding waterways

The reason why is explained in the following articles:

The US geostrategic objectives behind the war in Yemen

The Useful Island of Socotra

This article goes on to state:

"The Yemeni archipelago of Socotra in the Indian Ocean is located some 80km off the Horn of Africa and 380 km South of the Yemeni coastline. The islands of Socotra are a wildlife reserve recognized by UNESCO as a World Natural Heritage Site. Socotra is at the crossroads of the strategic naval waterways of the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aden (See map below). It is of crucial importance to the US military. Among Washington’s strategic objectives is the militarization of major sea ways. This strategic waterway links the Mediterranean to South Asia and the Far East, through the Suez Canal, the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aden. It is a major transit route for oil tankers. A large share of China’s industrial exports to Western Europe transits through this strategic waterway. Maritime trade from East and Southern Africa to Western Europe also transits within proximity of Socotra, through the Gulf of Aden and the Red Sea. A military base in Socotra could be used to oversee the movement of vessels including war ships in and out of the Gulf of Aden. Amjed Jaaved, in A new hot-spot of rivalry, Pakistan Observer, Jul 1 2009, points out:

"The Indian Ocean is a major sea lane connecting the Middle East, East Asia and Africa with Europe and the Americas. It has four crucial access waterways facilitating international maritime trade, that is the Suez Canal in Egypt, the Bab-el-Mandeb, bordering Djibouti and Yemen, the Straits of Hormuz, bordering Iran and Oman, and the Straits of Malacca, bordering Indonesia and Malaysia. These choke points are critical to world oil trade as huge amounts of oil pass through them.

From a military standpoint, the Socotra archipelago is at a strategic maritime crossroads. Morever, the archipelago extends over a relatively large maritime area at the Eastern exit of the Gulf of Aden, from the island of Abd al Kuri, to the main island of Socotra. This maritime area of international transit lies in Yemeni territorial waters. The objective of the US is to police the entire Gulf of Aden seaway, from the Yemeni to the Somali coastline. Socotra is some 3000 km from the US naval base of Diego Garcia, which is among the US’s largest overseas military facilities."

Images: massive US military buildup on Socotra

So this whole, sordid genocide of the Yemeni people isn't really about the Houthi rebels, and the "danger" they allegedly present to Yemen; it is about US military power projection in Middle Eastern waterways.

Make no mistake: this is big news. And very bad news!

Although the Syrian army, with its ally Russia, has made significant gains against ISIS over the past week or so, the Washington Post is reporting tonight that President Trump has for the first time sent regular US military personnel into that country in combat positions.

This is an unprecedented escalation of US involvement in the Syrian war and it comes without Congressional authorization, without UN authorization, and without the authorization of the government of Syria. In short it is three ways illegal.

US Rejects Talks over North Korea, Declaring “All Options on Table”… Including War against the DPRK?

Amid sharply rising tensions on the Korean Peninsula, the Trump administration has flatly rejected a Chinese proposal for negotiations with North Korea despite warnings from the Chinese foreign minister, Wang Yi, that Washington and Pyongyang were on a collision course. A confrontation looms as huge South Korean-US military exercises are underway, involving over 300,000 troops backed by an US aircraft carrier strike group, stealth fighters and strategic bombers.

China is clearly alarmed at the prospect of war on its doorstep. Speaking in uncharacteristically blunt terms in Beijing yesterday, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi warned:

“The two sides are like accelerating trains coming toward each other with neither side willing to give way,” he said. “The question is: Are the two sides really ready for a head-on collision? Our priority now is to flash the red light and apply the brakes on both trains.”

James Clapper, documented Liar to Congress about NSA Spying,: ‘I Can Deny’ Wiretap of Trump Tower

And Trump's CIA director wants to murder Snowden. Trump is surrounded by swamp creatures!

James Clapper is as big a liar as President Obama. It was Clapper who told Congress that the NSA was not dong mass spying on the American people.

That was a bold face lie that was discovered by documents released by Eric Snowden that blew the whistle on Obama's NSA. So there is absolutely no reason to believe a words that comes out of Clapper's mouth! The man has ZERO credibility!

Washington and America Self-Implode at the Hands of a Treasonous, Obama Led Shadow Government

The United States federal government in Washington is under attack today. Our nation’s capital is presently under siege, not from military bombs or rockets fired by any foreign enemy but from powerful enemies within. With Obama-Hillary-Soros forces ostensibly maneuvering outside official government channels, against America’s legitimately elected President Trump, and their loyalist foot soldiers – the neocons and intelligence community loyalists within the CIA/NSA/FBI still operating inside deep state, criminally conspiring with Mainstream Media, this sinister alliance is also organizing legions of clueless young leftist protesters to be at the ready for deployment in the streets to wreak havoc violently rioting as paid agitator insurgents.

Russia is a Diversion

The neocons want war; they want to ensure the trillion dollars or more per year keep flowing. They need to keep Russia as the enemy. Everyone is piling on – republicans and democrats.

Russia is a diversion; it is useful as a means to an end. It isn’t the end. The end is the salvation of the many pillars of the progressive agenda; the end is the final destruction of western, classical liberal, civilization.

Wanting Improved Ties with Russia Considered Heresy. Deep State Supporters Want Trump Removed From Office

Trump fired National Security Advisor Michael Flynn over nothing, bowing to opposition forces wanting him out “ solely for being soft on Russia, wanting improved relations.

So does AG Jeff Sessions, why he's targeted for removal, not for speaking to Russia's ambassador to Washington when a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee.

On Thursday, Sessions shamefully recused himself from federal investigations into the 2016 presidential campaign, related to (nonexistent) Russia election hacking “ groundless claims with evidence.

FBI investigations so far found nothing, including about allegations of Trump financial ties to Russian pubic or private figures.

I sure hope this isn't true. If it is, this is another example of Trump's stupidity!

Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair has discussed becoming Donald Trump's adviser on Middle East policies, during talks in the White House earlier this week, The Mail on Sunday reported.

Blair, who was in charge of the UK government in 1997-2007, met Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner in Washington on Wednesday, the papers claims, citing it's source.

The meeting in the West Wing of the US presidential residence lasted for three hours, according to The Mail on Sunday report.

White House pushing back against Mattis appointment

This guy is insubordinate and should be fired immediately. He is trying to pack the defense department with Obamanoids who are in good with terrorists.
And besides this individual is a war criminal who gets his men off for raping and murdering little boys and girls. He dishonored the CORPS!

Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis wants to tap the former U.S. ambassador to Egypt, Anne Patterson, as his undersecretary of defense for policy, but the Pentagon chief is running into resistance from White House officials, according to multiple sources familiar with the situation.

As ambassador to Egypt between 2011 and 2013, Patterson worked closely with former Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi and his Islamist government. She came under fire for cultivating too close a relationship with the regime and for discouraging protests against it—and White House officials are voicing concerns about those decisions now.

How Many People Would Die in a War Between the US and Russia?

From the frying pan into the fire.

One does not have to look far to find the people who are heading up the war planning. Yesterday, President Trump appointed Lieutenant General H.R. McMaster, an army strategist, as his new national security advisor.

The selection of McMaster is broadly seen as a concession to Trump’s anti-Russia critics in the political and intelligence establishment. He is the leading figure in an Army project called the Russia New Generation Warfare study, whose participants have made repeated trips to the battlefields of eastern Ukraine to study Russia’s military capabilities and devise strategies and weapons systems to defeat them. McMaster has called on the US to prepare for high-intensity conventional war with Russia, involving not only long-range missile systems and stealth aircraft, but also “close” combat.

FLASHBACK : The Roots of the Refugee Crisis Caused by the West

“The reason so many are fleeing places such as Syria, Libya, Afghanistan, and Iraq is that U.S. and European interventionist foreign policy has left these countries destabilized with no hopes of economic recovery,”explainedformer congressman and three-time presidential contender Ron Paul, a leading voice for a constitutional, non-interventionist U.S. foreign policy. “This mass migration from the Middle East and beyond is a direct result of the neocon foreign policy of regime change, invasion, and pushing ‘democracy’ at the barrel of a gun.”

“Contrary to what one might expect, U.S. military aid doesn’t produce willing, cooperative, or effective security partners. Instead, it incentivizes bad behavior and drives the sources of terrorism: corruption, violence, and poor governance. Unwittingly, this policy is creating its own enemies,” writes Jeremy Ravinsky.

Trump’s Foreign Policy at a Crossroads

By Robert Parry

If you wanted to bring sanity to a U.S. foreign policy that has spun crazily out of control, there would be some immediate steps that you – or, say, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson – could take, starting with a renewed commitment to tell the truth to the American people.

If you wanted to base U.S. foreign policy on the firm foundation of reality, you also could let the American people in on who is actually the principal sponsor of the terrorism that they’re concerned about: Al Qaeda, Islamic State, the Taliban – all Sunni-led outfits, none of which are backed by Shiite-ruled Iran. Yet, all we hear from Official Washington’s political and media insiders is that Iran is the chief sponsor of terrorism.

Kushner Foundation Bankrolls Radical Jewish West Bank Settlers

In recent years, the parents of Jared Kushner – the son-in-law and trusted confidant of President-elect Donald Trump – have donated tens of thousands of dollars to organizations and institutions located in the West Bank settlements, according to their tax forms.

The U.S. State Department has long held that the settlements are an impediment to peace. During the election campaign, however, Trump’s key advisers on Israel challenged this position.

On average, the family donates a few million dollars a year to charitable causes through the Charles and Seryl Kushner Foundation, tax forms for the years 2010 through 2014 show. The average donation is typically in the range of $5,000 to $10,000. Jared Kushner – as well as his brother and two sisters – sits on the board of his parents’ family foundation, which was created in 1997.

Regardless, when the dust settles and moral history is written, America and her Western cohorts will likely be viewed as the most brutal empire in history. Here are ten reasons why this is already the case:

‘US interventions a reason for migrant crisis, US should share burden’ – Austrian Chancellor

You were elected to stop the wars Trump not continue the atrocities that drive these people out of their homes and countries. Stop the damn illegal,unconstitutional wars!

The US shares responsibility for the ongoing migrant crisis, according to Austrian Chancellor Christian Kern. Speaking on the sidelines of an EU summit in Malta, he stated that American “interventions” are in part to blame for the refugee flows.

“There is no doubt that America shares responsibility for the refugee flows by the way how it intervened militarily,” Kern said on Saturday, as cited by AFP.

NEW CIA DEPUTY DIRECTOR BRIEFLY RAN BLACK SITE IN THAILAND WHERE DETAINEES WERE WATERBOARDED

Gina Haspel, who once was in charge of operating a CIA secret prison in Thailand where at least two detainees were waterboarded and tortured, was selected by CIA Director Mike Pompeo to be the CIA’s deputy director.

Although Pompeo publicly pledged during his confirmation hearing to keep the CIA out of the “enhanced interrogation business,” Haspel’s appointment is an ominous development. It significantly increases the likelihood that the CIA will restore some torture techniques, which were banned by President Barack Obama.

“Gina is an exemplary intelligence officer and a devoted patriot who brings more than 30 years of agency experience to the job,” Pompeo declared. “She is also a proven leader with an uncanny ability to get things done and to inspire those around her. We are fortunate that someone of her intellect, skill, and experience will be our Deputy Director. I know she will do an outstanding job, and I look forward to working with her closely in the years ahead.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Gina Haspel is precisely the kind of operative the American Deep State loves; someone loyal to the financial agendas it decrees, and will do anything she deems necessary to accomplish those ends.

Anything, regardless of whether is either productive...or moral.

Ms. Haspel, as a Christian Pacifist Activist, and someone not terribly happy when her country commits war crimes through torture, I will be quietly watching...and witnessing.

For many in the Israeli settlement of Bet El, deep in the occupied West Bank, Donald Trump's choice of Jared Kushner as his senior adviser on the Middle East is a sign of politics shifting in their favor.

They regard Kushner, whose family's charitable foundation has donated tens of thousands of dollars to their settlement, as part of a diplomatic rebalancing after what they view as eight years of anti-Israel bias under the U.S. administration of Barack Obama.

"He will stand up for our interests. I suppose he will lean in our favor," said Avi Lavi, 46, who has lived in Bet El for more than 40 years. "He'll be fair, as opposed to Obama, whose policy leaned always towards the Arabs."

US Raid Destroyed Most of Yemen Village, FM Blasts ‘Extrajudicial Killing’

The weekend raid by SEAL Team 6 forces into Yemen to target what was described as “al-Qaeda headquarters,” was championed by the administration as a great success in the initial wake of it, but subsequent accounts have instead shown a complete disaster, with losses among the attack US forces and substantial harm to civilians, virtually destroying the entire village and leading Yemen’s Foreign Minister to fault the attack as “extrajudicial killings.”

United States War Crimes: From Korea to Afghanistan

The issue of War Crimes emerged after World War I at the Versailles Conference, but it was not until the end of World War II that a more comprehensive definition of what constitutes war crimes was developed. First among new international conventions addressing war crimes was the 1950 Charter of the Nuremberg Tribunal. Its fundamental premise was that the conduct of war in violation of international treaties was a crime against peace. Ill treatment of prisoners of war, killing hostages, plunder of public or private property, wanton destruction of cities, towns, or villages was a war crime. Crimes against humanity include murder, extermination, deportation, and prosecution based on political, racial or religious grounds.

Just remember,it is the criminal actions of dc and Israel that have caused these massive flows of refugees. It is the NWO Clash of Civilizations.

I cannot believe the anti-Trump protests at airports and across the nation. Trump is trying to prevent the historic killing and terror events which are a major part of muslim 'culture'. Imposing even a 90 day ban on incoming muslims from murder and terror states like Somalia Iraq & Sudan is strictly logical and represents a bare minimum of common sense. What are White Americans thinking of protesting someone who is making good on part of his promises to the voters to protect them from terrorist butchery?

Obama killed a 16-year old American in Yemen. Trump just killed his 8-year old sister

Trump now has the blood of innocents smeared on his face. I didn't vote for this!

In 2010, President Obama directed the CIA to assassinate an American citizen in Yemen, Anwar al-Awlaki, despite the fact that he had never been charged with (let alone convicted of) any crime, and the agency successfully carried out that order a year later with a September, 2011 drone strike.

Two weeks after the killing of Awlaki, a separate CIA drone strike in Yemen killed his 16-year-old American-born son, Abdulrahman, along with the boy’s 17-year-old cousin and several other innocent Yemenis.

On Sunday, the Navy’s SEAL Team 6, using armed Reaper drones for cover, carried out a commando raid on what it said was a compound harboring officials of Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula. A statement issued by President Trump lamented the death of an American service member and several others who were wounded, but made no mention of any civilian deaths.

Trump Will Defer to Mattis on Torture Ban

In comments that signal a shift away from his talk earlier this week over the US resuming the use of torture on detainees, President Trump today confirmed in comments during a joint conference with British Prime Minister Theresa May, saying he is leaving the torture question up to Defense Secretary James Mattis.

Mattis has made clear his opposition to torture, and his belief that it isn’t effective, and despite Trump once again today insisting he believes torture works, he will defer to Mattis, and Trump says he expects Mattis to keep the ban in place.

This makes the entire discussion over the week about torture, with Trump insisting top intelligence chiefs had assured him torture was a great way to extract information, pretty pointless, as both Mattis and CIA Director Mike Pompeo had made clear their opposition to the practice, and Trump apparently did not intend to overrule them.

FLASHBACK - A Brief History of CIA Assassination Programs

“Before irrefutable evidence of its vast kidnapping and interrogation programme post-2001 surfaced, the CIA similarly used to claim, year after year, that it had never been in the torture business either. Torture manuals drafted by the agency would surface – a 128-page secret how-to-torture guide produced by the CIA in July 1963 called Kubark Counterintelligence Interrogation, another 1983 manual, enthusiastically used by CIA clients in the ‘Contra’ war against central American leftist nationalists in President Reagan’s years – and the agency would deny, waffle and evade until the moment came simply to dismiss the torture charge as “an old story”.
In fact the agency took a keen practical interest in torture and assassination from its earliest days, studying Nazi interrogation techniques avidly.

Fight Fire With Fire: Trump Outlines His Plan For ISIS

By Derrick Broze

President Trump is ready to waterboard members of ISIS. Is he bringing torture back or just continuing the tradition?

“As far as I’m concerned, we have to fight fire with fire,” President Donald Trump said on Wednesday night in an interview with ABC News. In his first televised interview since being sworn in on January 20, Trump covered a wide range of topics. The comments regarding fighting fire with fire were in relation to the president’s view on how to combat the terror group Daesh (also known as ISIS).

Trump was questioned about his previous statements in support of the use of torture, specifically the simulated drowning technique known as waterboarding. Trump said he believes waterboarding works and is considering reinstating the technique. However, Trump did admit that he will yield to the recommendations made by Defense Secretary James Mattis and CIA Director Mike Pompeo...

No, Torture Doesn’t “Work”

“A lot of these people who weigh in heavily on interrogation have no idea how little they know, [and do so] because of what they see on television,” said Kleinman, chairman of the research advisory committee to the High Value Detainee Interrogation Group (HIG).

“There is, at best, anecdotal evidence to support torture,” said Kleinman, who emphasized that he was not speaking for the HIG.

“There is, on the other hand, a robust body of scientific literature and field testing that demonstrates the efficacy of a relationship-based, rapport-based, cognitive-based approach to interrogation, as well as a robust literature that would suggest torture immediately undermines a source’s ability to be a reliable reporter of information: memory is undermined, judgment is undermined, decision-making is undermined, time-references are undermined. And this is only from a purely operational perspective; we can’t take the morality out of strategy.”

Draft Executive Order On CIA ‘Black Sites’ Renews Questions About Trump’s Torture Policy

President Donald Trump’s openness to waterboarding and torture of terrorist suspects could lead to the review and ultimate reopening of CIA interrogation programs used in secret “black sites” worldwide, if a leaked executive order draft is any indication.

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer told reporters that a copy of a draft executive order distributed to major media outlets including the New York Times and Associated Press on Wednesday “is not a White House document.”

‘Trump didn’t consult Moscow on Syria safe zone plan, should consider all consequences’ – Kremlin

First Trump says he wont take sanctions off Russia unless they give up some nukes. The Russians consider those sanctions unjustified and onerous and now this. Anything good this guy might do will be destroyed by war with Russia.
The Donald is going south and fast!

Moscow has reacted to Donald Trump’s plans on establishing ‘safe zones’ for Syrian refugees, with the Kremlin spokesman saying the question had not been raised with Russia, while also suggesting the US should consider the possible consequences of such a move.
Trends
Islamic State, Syria unrest

“Our American partners did not consult with Russia [regarding the ‘safe zones’]. It is their sovereign decision,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told a conference call with reporters on Thursday.

He noted the importance of considering all the possible outcomes of taking such a step.

DRAFT ORDER FOR RE-OPENING CIA ‘BLACK SITE’ PRISONS WOULD MARK RETURN TO DARK ERA

When the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence held its confirmation hearing for CIA director Mike Pompeo, not a single senator asked a question about whether President Donald Trump planned to re-open the CIA’s detention network of “black site” prisons. But now, a drafted executive order has reignited concern over whether Trump will restore facilities and reinstate policies, which involved the routine and systematic violation of human rights.

Webmaster addition: The White House is claiming that the report of this draft by the New York Slimes and Washington Compost is fake, and no such draft has been written by the administration.

Why Did War Criminal Obama Grant Clemency To Manning?

New CIA Docs Offer Torture Details, Show Internal Debate

Despite intense efforts to keep most of the details of their use of torture secret over recent years, the CIA’s most recent release of documents included several which shed new light on the practice of torture, as well as underscoring an intense internal debate within the agency about the policy.

Among these were cables about the torture of Abu Zubaydah, revealing he was waterboarded 83 different times in a single month, and kept in a small box to small for him to sit up in for hours on end to induce pain. It also revealed there was a formal policy of smacking him repeatedly head-first into walls, with torturers admonished to put a rolled up towel behind his neck to prevent permanent neck injuries.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Please remember; this is what your government did in your name, and with your tax dollars; don't you feel proud?!?

And particularly in light of the following:

US report on 'enhanced interrogation' concludes: torture doesn't work

Apparently, no one in Bush's administration even wanted to consider the
incredible successes of World War II's German interrogator, Hans Scharff, who only used kindness and communication as his tools for extracting information.

The Friendliest Interrogator Of World War II Was A German

In fact, this man's humaneness was so revered by the American government, that at the end of the war, he was invited to teach his techniques to the American military.

What he did worked, and worked without harming anyone; what the US government did, or had done, didn't work, and was thoroughly morally repugnant to anyone with a sense of conscience.

People who torture, and love it, are mentally ill vermin who "get off" on the process, because they know that there wil be no repercussions for their actions.

But for that unholy trinity of Bush, Rumsfeld, and Cheney to have signed off on the use of torture, at the highest level of this government...does make me wonder about the state of their minds, and souls (if they have any).

And please consider this; when the US government tortures, or outsources torture, that demonstrates to the rest of the world that it does not honor human rights in the least, nor follows the dictates of Constitution; the Bill of Rights; or the Geneva Conventions.

And also, when the US government tortures, it gives other countries around the world which don't particularly care for the US government carte blanche to torture American civilians and our military.

Please chew on that for awhile, if you have family or friends in our military.

Abu Ghraib torture – How many tortured Iraqis would you think have since then joined IS?

“The U.S. Department of Defense must release a cache of photos showing how Army personnel treated detainees at the Abu Ghraib prison and other sites in Iraq and Afghanistan, a federal judge ruled on Wednesday….

The number of photos sought in the lawsuit has not been disclosed but has been estimated at roughly 2,000, according to the Congressional Record and court papers…..

After Hellerstein in March 2015 ordered the release of additional photos, [Defense Secretary] Carter allowed the release of 198 but kept the remainder under wraps, citing a review of a "representative sample" by four high-ranking generals……

The judge said that while risks remained, including that portions of Iraq had been "overrun" by the Islamic State, he could not blindly accept withholding the remaining photos.”

Trump's Son-In-Law Jared Kushner Invites Bush-Cheney Insider To Serve As Key Advisor In Trump White House

Neil Patel served as Dick Cheney's right hand man and even represented Cheney at meetings during Bush's reign. Patel is set to help Kushner, who has become a key Trump advisor, on the Middle east conflict. Here is a photo of Patel with Cheney from The U.S. National Archives, and also a photo of Patel with Karl Rove going way back to 2003. Trump often describes Kushner as 'very smart,' but the director of Harvard's college preparatory program at the time described Kushner's admission as "an unusual choice for Harvard to make" given that he was "not anywhere near the top of his class." Kushner's felon daddy donated $2.5 million dollars to Harvard prior to Kushner's admission. Last summer at a Town Hall Q&A, a very polite elderly gentleman told Donald trump that "I'm opposed to wasting our military in the Middle East on behalf of Zionist Israel.

Chelsea Manning's Attorneys: Obama's Commutation Will Help Save Life Of Jailed Army Whistleblower

In one of his final acts in office, President Obama shortened the sentences of 209 prisoners and pardoned 64 individuals on Tuesday. The list included Army whistleblower Chelsea Manning, who is now set to be freed on May 17, after Obama reduced her sentence from 35 years to seven. According to her attorneys, she is already the longest-held whistleblower in U.S. history.

The Ugly Specter Of Torture And Lies

January 17 was an unusually good day for truth and human rights on both sides of the Atlantic. Even before President Obama commuted whistleblower Chelsea Manning’s long prison sentence, the British Supreme Court ruled unanimously that government ministers cannot claim “state immunity” or other specious grounds to avoid legal accountability in cases of abduction (rendition) and torture.

Reality check: Is #Pizzagate #Fakenews or Has It Just Not Been Officially Investigated?

There is no proof here that there is a child sex-ring operating out of a DC pizza parlor. Investigators have already proven that there is nothing to the story, right? Well, actually, no; and that's what you need to know.

For all that is here, there has not been single public investigation of any of this... not from the local police, not from the FBI. No one. And that has to be the big question: Not for the Podestas or pizza parlor owners, but for law enforcement. Why hasn't any investigation taken place?
