Russia confirms commitment to Paris climate change agreement amid fears of US pullout

If Putin believes in so called climate change,then he is just another NWO hack!

Russia sees no alternative to the 2015 Paris agreement on climate change, the Kremlin said amid expectations that the US may withdraw from the key emission-reduction accord.

“President Vladimir Putin signed this convention when he was in Paris. Russia attaches great significance to it,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told the media on Thursday. “At the same time, it goes without saying that the effectiveness of this convention is likely to be reduced without its key participants.”

He added that at the moment “there is no alternative to” the Paris convention.

Saudi Arabia to Behead 23-year-Old Deaf, Blind Man Who Took Part In A Protest

Saudi Arabia is to behead a deaf and visually impaired man to death for taking part in a protest, it has emerged.

Disabled Munir Adam, 23, was arrested in the wake of political demonstrations in the Shia dominated east of the Kingdom in 2012.

A court in Saudi Arabia has upheld his death sentence and Adam has just one appeal left before the King signs an execution warrant.

Adam was arrested for violent acts at a protest and accused of 'sending texts', according to Reprieve.

TRUMP DUMPS PRETENSION OF ALTRUISM FROM U.S. FOREIGN POLICY

For decades the U.S. foreign policy elite and its presidents played the farce of an altruistic United States that acts for the global good and in the interest of humanity. That was always a lie. Wherever one takes a deeper look the U.S. acted solely in its (perceived) self interests. But the rhetoric helped to drag others along. Tributary governments could pretend they worked for the "universal good" when they in fact just followed orders from Washington DC. U.S. pressure was applied behind the curtain - through bribes, threats of revealing private secrets or, if necessary, via well managed "democratic" coups.

Scott Adams: The Kathy Griffin Controversy

Comedian Kathy Griffin got into some hot water for a staged photo of herself holding a realistic-looking severed head that looks like President Trump. I won’t reproduce the photo here. It is disturbing. People asked me what it all means in terms of persuasion, if anything. I’ll tell you.

Disclosure: Kathy Griffin played the voice of the Alice in my old Dilbert TV show on UPN. I like Kathy, both personally and professionally. I’m a fan. Feel free to factor in my bias when you read this post.

How Israeli Moves in Jerusalem are Scotching Trump’s ‘Ultimate Deal’

A decision by Donald Trump this Thursday could prove fateful for the immediate future of Jerusalem, the wider Israeli-Palestinian conflict and the region.

He must decide whether to renew a presidential waiver, signed by his predecessor, Barack Obama, that expires on June 1. The six-month waiver delays implementing a law passed by Congress in 1995 that requires the US to recognise occupied Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and relocate its embassy there from Tel Aviv.

It is a law every president for the past 22 years has baulked at. It would pre-empt the Oslo accords and negate Washington’s assumed role as “honest broker”. Carrying out Congress’s wish would deny the Palestinians East Jerusalem, the only credible capital of a future Palestinian state.

Daesh and the West's Solid Stench of Death

Whenever the West's formidable military machine adds to its tragic litany of "collateral damage" – in Libya, Yemen, Somalia, the tribal areas in Pakistan – silence reigns. No Muslim full names on front pages.

Whenever NATO-GCC proxies add to their own tragic litany of premeditated massacres – across Syria, across Iraq – the perpetrators are excused because they're "our," "moderate" rebels and freedom fighters.

This inexorable, perverse, logic won't be altered. Now with a twist, because President Trump has explained to a startled world, via his Islamophobe speechwriter Stephen Miller, it's all Iran's fault.

Trump professed his faith while swearing over a glowing orb nestled in Riyadh, the alma mater of all forms of Wahhabi or Salafi-jihadi terror.

10 Best Strains To Treat PTSD This Veteran’s Day

Men and women of service are brave, noble, and have risked all that they have in honor of something much larger than themselves. These actions deserve the most sincere gratitude. Yet, all too often, veterans return to an environment that cannot support their needs. Those with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) know first-hand the challenges that come with trying medication after medication with no relief. Thankfully, there’s medical cannabis. In honor of Veteran’s Day, here are 10 top strains for PTSD.

Joe Biggs: Kathy Griffin Beheads President Trump In Photo Shoot. Harnesses Her Inner ISIS

So much for the “No Hate” part

In a video exclusive to TMZ we see failed comedian Kathy Griffin holding a bloodied head of President Trump as she harnesses her inner ISIS desires. She stares it up and down as if she has real hate for him. She said ” She wants his head, but bloodies and detached from his body”. This is the type of sickening acts we see by the left time and time again. If it were Obama, secret service would have been up her ass faster than Superman trying to get into loise lanes panties. But because he’s a white, christian, cis gendered, able bodied man Liberal lunatics can fake assassinate him on a daily basis.

How Jeff Sessions’ Mandatory Minimums Benefit Private Prisons

Corrupt!

The $4.8 billion industry has spent millions of dollars lobbying for laws that call for harsher sentences for offenders and against legislation that would reduce them. USA Today found that two of the largest for-profit prison operators in the country, GEO Group and CoreCivic, each donated $250,000 to Trump’s inaugural fund, with the former also giving $225,000 to a Trump super PAC. As the American Civil Liberties Union noted in January, GEO Group hired two of Sessions’ former aides as federal lobbyists.

Report suggests potentially alarming development in Jared Kushner’s meeting with the head of a sanctioned Russian bank

The FBI is examining whether Russian officials suggested to President Donald Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, that Russian banks could finance Trump associates’ business ventures if US sanctions were lifted or relaxed, Reuters reported on Friday, citing a current US law enforcement official.

The possibility first came under scrutiny after Kushner met with the CEO of Russia’s state-owned Vnesheconombank in December 2016. The meeting came on the heels of Kushner’s meeting with Russia’s ambassador to the US, Sergey Kislyak, at Trump Tower, in which he reportedly floated the possibility of setting up a secure line of communication between the Trump transition team and Russia.

Will Europe Finally Rethink NATO’s Costs?

President Donald Trump’s politically incorrect behavior at the gathering of NATO leaders in Brussels on Thursday could, in its own circuitous way, spotlight an existential threat to the alliance. Yes, that threat is Russia, but not in the customary sense in which Westerners have been taught to fear the Russian bear. It is a Russia too clever to rise to the bait – a Russia patient enough to wait for the Brussels bureaucrats and generals to fall of their own weight, pushed by financial exigencies in many NATO countries.

Is Bannon Back? Senior Trump Advisers Push Kushner To "Take A Step Back"

Despite Kelly and McMaster both brushing off Kushner's 'Russian back-channel' story as standard practice for new administrations, increasing controversy surrounding the president's son-in-law have reportedly prompted senior advisers to suggest it's time for Kushner to "take a step back."

Exclusive: Wall Street Funds Hold Hundreds of Millions in Sanctioned Russian Bank Subject to Kushner Probe

Reuters reported on Saturday that “FBI investigators are examining whether Russians suggested to Kushner or other Trump aides that relaxing economic sanctions would allow Russian banks to offer financing to people with ties to Trump, said the current U.S. law enforcement official.”

Financial dealings with a Russian bank that remains under U.S. sanctions can result in serious penalties – or not. Wall Street On Parade conducted research into filings made at the Securities and Exchange Commission for fixed income securities issued by Vnesheconombank and found that some of the biggest names in Wall Street banking and mutual funds in the U.S. hold, cumulatively, hundreds of millions of dollars in notes and bonds issued by the Russian bank.

IS A PREVIOUSLY UNFATHOMABLE RIFT OPENING UP BETWEEN JARED KUSHNER AND TRUMP?

It’s a well-known fact that Donald Trump prefers not to be involved in controversies that could affect his new job as President, or his family. It’s also well known that, even as President, he still keeps one finger firmly planted on the “You’re Fired” button, and is liable to shuffle around his staff at any time. That’s potentially bad news for Jared Kushner. Trump’s son-in-law has recently come under fire for reportedly seeking to communicate with Russia through back-channels during Trump’s campaign, and is now a person of interest in the growing F.B.I investigation.

Murdered by a communist, liberals spent the better part of the last 54 years blaming Dallas oil men, shadowy CIA operatives, and the John Birch Society for his death. Kennedy’s assassin perhaps understood him better than many of his mourners.

Trump Budget Finds $0 in Wasteful Pentagon Programs.

In assembling the budget as proposed on Tuesday, the Trump administration dove deep into the weeds of the executive branch, finding programs that it deems wasteful or unnecessary and targeting them for complete elimination. All told, the budget lists 66 programs that would be either completely zeroed out or would lose the overwhelming majority of their spending authority. In all, the budget claims savings of $26.7 billion from what it refers to as “major discretionary eliminations.”

However, the administration apparently has a significant blind spot when it comes to the Department of Defense, an accounting black hole into which some $639 billion is set to disappear under the president’s budget proposal. >>>

Trump: Dancing with Wolves on the Titanic

Robert Fisk put it best: “Trump Is About To Really Mess Up In The Middle East”. Following his fantastically stupid decision to attack the Syrian military with cruise missiles, Trump or, should I say, the people who make decisions for him, probably realized that it was “game over” for any US policy in the Middle-East so they did the only thing that they could do: they ran towards those few who were actually happy with this aggression against Syria: the Saudis and the Israelis. Needless to say, with these two “allies,” what currently passes for some type of “US foreign policy” in the Middle-East will only go from bad to worse.

Bombshell Intel on Former FBI Comey

Don’t believe the fake-media story that Trump made a mistake or huge gaffe by firing Comey.

Don’t believe the media narrative from the left that it was an attempt to silence Comey from some investigation into Trump.

Don’t believe the RINO narrative that Comey is a good guy just trying to do his job in terrible circumstances and the timing was bad.

Don’t believe the lie that Comey was admired and respected by career FBI investigators and agents.

Don’t believe the lie that Trump’s “tweets” are not professional and have no strategic purpose. His tweets are weaponized and deadly.

James Comey is a poisonous snake of the highest order… a deep-water Swamp Denizen who has been highly paid to deliberately provide cover for high-level corruption by the Clintons and Obama. He is has been central to trying to destroy the Trump campaign and then the Trump administration from the start.

Still No Proof of Trump/Russia Collusion

Former CIA Director John Brennan testified on Capitol Hill this week and told Congress that he was “concerned” and “aware of information and intelligence that revealed contacts and interactions between Russian officials and . . . the Trump campaign.” The big headline buried in the mainstream media (MSM) reporting was Brennan admitting in the same hearing, “I don’t know whether or not such collusion . . . existed. I don’t know.” That means there is still zero evidence that anyone in the Trump campaign colluded with the Russians. The “Witch Hunt” continues.

FBI probing attempted hack of Trump Organization, officials say

The FBI is investigating an attempted overseas cyberattack against the Trump Organization, summoning President Donald Trump’s sons, Don Jr. and Eric, for an emergency session with the bureau’s cybersecurity agents and representatives of the CIA, officials tell ABC News.

Law enforcement officials who spoke to ABC News on the condition of anonymity confirmed the attempted hack and said the subsequent meeting took place at the FBI’s New York headquarters on May 8, the day before Trump fired FBI director James Comey. Spokesmen for the FBI, CIA and Secret Service all declined to comment.

Reached by phone, Eric Trump, an executive vice president of the family company, would not confirm or deny that he and his brother had met with the FBI but told ABC News that the company had ultimately not been infiltrated.

“We absolutely weren’t hacked,” Eric Trump said during the brief call. “That’s crazy. We weren’t hacked, I can tell you that.”

Secretary of Defense James Mattis’s Iraq “War Crimes”

March 1, 2017

Retired Marine General James Mattis, a man who has served over forty years in the Marine Corps, was sworn in as the US Secretary of Defense in January 2017. Before his confirmation, he was under public scrutiny—for instance, for his controversial comments on “political Islam” at the Heritage Foundation in 2015—but, Dahr Jamail reports, the bigger concern is that Mattis “is clearly responsible for carrying out and/or aiding and abetting in several war crimes.”

The November 2005 Haditha massacre was well documented and received international attention, even if Mattis’s role in it has been largely forgotten. After a roadside bomb attack on a Marine convoy, a group of American soldiers rounded up 24 unarmed Iraqi civilians—including women, children, and elderly people—and shot them numerous times at close range. When the Marines were brought to trial, Mattis was the authority that dismissed the charges against them.

The Donald Meets Sun Tzu and is Found Wanting

Some two thousand and five hundred years ago one of my favorite strategic analysts, a Chinese general and Imperial Adviser, Sun Tzu, wrote his tiny but historic text, The Art of War. It’s used today as essential reading all over the world, including by students at the US West Point military academy, the incubator for America’s future generals. In his treatise Sun Tzu describes five essential qualities needed in a successful leader, in his case, a successful general.

The qualities apply to anyone in a position of leadership responsibility. The problem is not Donald Trump. The problem is that we, American citizens, blinded ourselves by wishful thinking that finally someone would stand up and 2make America great again.”

Why do these officials become criminals, and why do the mainstream media protect them? -- Because this seedy bargain is the best way to advance their common interests. The media get the stolen goods to damage Trump. Anti-Trump officials get their egos massaged, their agendas advanced and their identities protected. This is the corrupt bargain the Beltway press has on offer. For the media, bringing down Trump is also good for business. TV ratings of anti-Trump media are soaring. The “failing New York Times” has seen a surge in circulation. The Pulitzers are beckoning. -- And bringing down a president is exhilarating.

Donald of Arabia: A Disgusting Spectacle

by Justin Raimondo, May 22, 2017

Has there been a more disgusting spectacle during the four months of this presidency than the sight of Donald Trump slobbering all over the barbarous Saudi monarch and his murderous family of petty princelings? It’s enough to make any normal American retch, especially when one remembers what Trump said about them during the election:

“Saudi Arabia and many of the countries that gave vast amounts of money to the Clinton Foundation want women as slaves and to kill gays. Hillary must return all money from such countries!”

And then there was this tweet:

“Tell Saudi Arabia and others that we want (demand!) free oil for the next ten years or we will not protect their private Boeing 747s. Pay up!”

Now Trump’s son in law, Jared Kushner, is calling up Lockheed-Martin to get a discount for the Saudis, personally brokering the biggest arms deal in US history. What a difference a presidency makes!

Trump’s Astonishing Lies & Duplicity In Saudi Arabia His ‘Muslim World Address’ Is Overflowing With BS

In Saudi Arabia Sunday night, Trump addressed the Muslim world – after sealing a $110 billion arms deal, signing a memorandum of intent to supply Riyadh with weapons worth around $350 billion over the next decade.

He exuded deplorable gratitude to his despotic host, falsely claiming he chose “the heart of the Muslim world” for his first foreign trip “to deliver a message of friendship and hope.”

Hardly by agreeing to supply Riyadh with hundreds of billions of dollars of powerful weapons for regional wars and domestic repression.

Claiming is “vision is one of peace, security and prosperity” in the Middle East and worldwide belies America’s destructive agenda, endless imperial wars, escalating on his watch.

Trump: “Our goal is a coalition of nations who share the aim of stamping out extremism and providing our children a hopeful future…”

Fact: Reality is polar opposite – in America, EU countries, and most others.

If you think that’s no big deal, you’re wrong. It’s a big deal. This is – literally – weapons-grade persuasion from the most powerful Master Persuader of our time.

Trump’s Art of the Deal in the Middle East: Selling wars and terrorism

It would be funny if it were not so sickening. US President Donald Trump’s whirlwind tour through the Middle East was a “triumph” of make-believe rhetoric over reality. Donald “the peace-maker” is sowing decades of further violence in the war-torn region.

The horrific repercussions of American foreign policy are all around us, from the illegal occupation of Palestinian territories to the ongoing wars in Syria, Iraq, and Yemen, to the latest terror attack in Britain where 22 people were killed in a suicide bombing at a concert in Manchester.

With a typical inane understanding of the web of international terrorism that American foreign policy has generated over many years, Trump glibly condemned the bombing atrocity in Manchester as the work of “losers.”

Without End To Military Aid, Trump's Israel Peace Message Is Useless

Promising to help broker peace in the Middle East, Trump ignores that the ongoing U.S. military-related aid to Israel only encourages the country to wage war.

“ISIL crisis” plays right into Zionists hands

Rahm Emanuel, President Obama’s first Chief of Staff – who also served as Obama’s Israeli Mossad handler – famously said: “You never let a serious crisis go to waste. And what I mean by that it’s an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.”

Individuals, groups, whole industries, even nations sometimes take advantage of crises and catastrophes. Big bankers, for example, love war because it forces governments to borrow vast sums of money at compound interest. Arms manufacturers also make huge profits. And the big government always gets bigger during wartime as it confiscates people’s wealth and scales back their rights.

Never before has so much steaming hypocrisy occupied the White House: Neil Macdonald

Hypocrisy is so deeply embedded in politics that the two words are synonyms. That shamelessness pays is an axiom.

And look, for sure, hypocrisy is the best thing about covering politics.

It's white truffles, it's Belgian chocolate, it's a spigot of fine wine that never, ever runs out.

Some politicians, called on hypocrisy, bluster, claiming they were only adopting a wide stance.

Others, like former president Bill Clinton, retreat to hilarious parsing: I didn't inhale, could you please define "sex," etc.

Still, others never even have to deal with it. Once he moved into the White House, for example, President Barack Obama's often-stated desire to "kneel before that rugged cross" seemed to evaporate. Sunday church outings ended.

President Donald Trump, though, is the Chronos of hypocrisy. He is Jabba the Hutt, with hypocrisy crouching in a silver bikini, a leash around its neck.

America Arms The Kurds And Terrorists, Turks Bomb Kurds And Assist Terrorists: What Side Is Everyone On?

Recently, the Trump administration approved the arming of Kurdish militias in Syria with heavy weapons. Early on, Trump had allowed for the shipment of various armored vehicles and light weaponry to be shipped to Kurdish fighters but the new announcement will see restrictions removed and allow for even more plentiful and powerful weaponry being sent to Kurds in Syria who are battling terrorists, Turkey, the Syrian military, and non-Kurd militias.

Turkey is obviously outraged at the new announcement. These Kurdish fighters are bound to use those arms against Turkey at some point if for no other reason that the fact that Turkey has invaded Syrian territory and launched a war not on ISIS but the YPG. At the same time, however, the United States and Turkey are allies with Turkey doing the bidding of the U.S. for the past six years of the conflict in Syria.

Trump Backs Sunni Radical Islam over Moderate Shi’ism

President Donald Trump signaled to the nations of the Middle East and Muslim world that he strongly backs radical Sunni Islam, mostly embodied by Saudi Arabia’s brand of Wahhabism, over the emerging moderate Shi’ism on display in Iran. Trump’s first visit to another country as president was Saudi Arabia. Trump was also the only president to make Saudi Arabia his first stop after taking office. The decision to honor Saudi Arabia with such U.S. presidential protocol was a calculated one.

The conspiracy to kill Trump

The above headline is a metaphor. I am writing to you today about what I see as the political assassination of President Donald J. Trump. Trump’s rallying cry — “America first” — was anathema to the globalists who want the world in sync with their metronome. The New World Order is a global orchestra where every instrument has a precise pitch. If just one piece is not playing in tune for the conductor, the concert is ruined. Former President Barack Obama was never off key. America under Trump’s presidency has shown a propensity to play to a separate beat.

The Republic Has Fallen: The Deep State’s Plot to Take Over America Has Succeeded

No doubt about it.The coup d’etat has been successful.
The Deep State—a.k.a. the police state a.k.a. the military industrial complex—has taken over.
The American system of representative government has been overthrown by a profit-driven, militaristic corporate state bent on total control and global domination through the imposition of martial law here at home and by fomenting wars abroad.

When in doubt, follow the money trail.

Enter Donald Trump, the candidate who swore to drain the swamp in Washington DC.

Instead of putting an end to the corruption, however, Trump has paved the way for lobbyists, corporations, the military industrial complex, and the Deep State to feast on the carcass of the dying American republic.

Suspect in House Democrat IT Scandal ALSO Had Access to Leaked DNC Emails

The Daily Caller News Foundation reported in February that three brothers who managed office IT for government officials were relieved of their duties on suspicion that they accessed specific computer networks without permission, also known as hacking.

Brothers Abid, Imran, and Jamal Awan were barred from computer networks at the House of Representatives. One of the brothers has a criminal record.

The three brothers funneled House data to an external server.

Imran Awan possessed the password to DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Shultz’s ipad when DNC emails were leaked to Wikileaks.

Woodward-Haig Connection Did you know Bob Woodward worked in the Nixon White House 1969-70?

Bob Woodward lied* to conceal his early ties to General Alexander Haig. In 1969 and 1970, Navy Lt. Bob Woodward manned the Pentagon's secret communications room, which transmitted messages around the world, including the back channel communications for Henry Kissinger and President Richard Nixon. In that duty, Woodward often delivered messages from the worlds top leaders to Gen. Alexander Haig, Kissinger's deputy at the National Security Council.

U.S. $360b in deals. Now they want Trump to rescind 9/11 lawsuit law.

RIYADH, SAUDI ARABIA

President Donald Trump struck a series of deals with Saudi Arabia on his two-day visit but the kingdom is still anxiously waiting for him to deliver on something else: the repeal of a contentious 2016 law that allows relatives of 9/11 victims to sue the kingdom for their deaths.

Saudi officials have been quietly lobbying the administration and Congress to overturn the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act, which led more than 800 families to file suit in New York in March.

Why I Am Still Thanking Mr. Trump!

If it all changes tomorrow, the bits of truth that Donald Trump has already revealed about American society, politics, and the deep state, and his small explosions of personal authority over Washington authoritarianism will always be inspiring. He is serving the nation better than any – any – predecessor before him. Unlike Kennedy, Trump is not quietly and legally wrangling with the deep state from within. He is driving it to madness, into accidental tactical exposure, into revealing its logistics, strategies and generals, and its desperation. This is all we ever asked for, and all we need.

An assessment of the danger must be carried out by the Energy Department, Homeland Security, DNI and state and local governments to examine the readiness of the United State to manage a shutdown of the power grid. The assessment will also identify gaps and shortcomings in efforts that would be used restore power.

House Seeks Details on Increasing Permanent US Military Presence in Europe

House Armed Services Committee chairman Rep. Mac Thornberry (R – TX) is seeking official estimates from the Pentagon on the cost of more permanent deployments of US ground troops into Europe, particularly as it relates to the escalations of the past couple of years.

The US has made multiple ground deployments into Eastern Europe over the past year, mostly centering on getting ground troops near the Russian border as part of “spearhead” forces, which the Pentagon has presented as necessary to “reassure” US allies in the region.

House looks at increasing permanent military presence in Europe

The House Armed Services Committee has asked the Pentagon to calculate the cost of permanently stationing what are now rotational U.S. military forces in Europe, chairman Rep. Mac Thornberry said Monday.

Thornberry said lawmakers want to see how keeping units on the continent long term compares to the cost of short rotations aimed at reassuring allies over Russia and supporting NATO training operations.

U.S. soldiers arrived in Poland in January and fanned out to sites across Eastern Europe, where concerns run highest over Russia's claims on Crimea and its assistance to rebels fighting the Ukraine government.

The summit was attended by countries, known to be US allies.

"King Salman and most Muslims feel the desire of peace and wish to stop all forms of extremism and terrorism", Trump was heard saying at the summit.

The Baneful Apocalyptic Triad of USA, Israel and Saudi Arabia

Trump effectively blessed Saudi Arabia as a pillar of moderate Islam as part of his “Muslim reset”.

One Arab writer even hailed Saudi-US ties as one that “shaped the wider world” and although the wider world would undeniably agree with that reality, it would nevertheless consign such ties to the very negative end of the global affairs spectrum.

The Israeli press celebrated Trump’s royal treatment in Riyadh and observed how the president and select members of his cabinet danced with swords in a ceremony that must have nauseated the families of 9/11 victims. Syrians, Yemenis and Christian minorities worldwide would have also watched that macabre spectacle with a foreboding sense of horror.

THE PRICE OF HELLFIRE MISSILES: EVERYTHING AMERICANS COULD BUY AT THE COST OF A DRONE STRIKE

As Donald Trump’s plan to Make America Great Again unfolds, there is at least one thing he will not need to worry about because the United States is already greatest at it — spending the most money to kill people. With US defense spending being more than the next 7 countries combined, none of our competitors will be catching up to us anytime soon. In this case, the greatness of the US is beyond question and it comes at a cost — but that is the price we pay for our freedom. And no one can put a price on freedom. But have any of you wondered — if you could put a price on freedom — what its cost would be? Or, in other words — how great exactly is the price of things like Hellfire missiles?

Trump talks peace while selling weapons

Trump spent two days in Saudi Arabia, where he announced massive weapons deals with an absolute monarchy that has been leading a devastating US-backed bombing campaign against Yemen, killing thousands of civilians over the last two years.

A Saudi-led blockade has caused hunger to millions of Yemenis and brought the country to the brink of famine.

Yemen now faces a cholera epidemic that is spreading rapidly out of control.

The announcement of Trump’s initial $110 billion arms deal with Saudi Arabia sent the stocks of weapons makers soaring.

Trump's Budget Will Slash $1.7 Trillion In Entitlements, Cut Food Stamps By 25%

Here are some of the highlights from the latest batch of trial balloons:

The budget will slash $1.7 trillion in spending on entitlement programs, according to Bloomberg.
Trump’s budget will include a massive nearly $200 billion cut to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, the modern version of food stamps, over the next 10 years – what amounts to a 25% reduction, according to The Washington Post.
The food stamp cuts are part of a broader $274 billion welfare-reform effort, according to a report by The Associated Press.
The budget calls for about $800 billion in cuts to Medicaid for fiscal year 2018, WaPo reported.
The budget also calls for $2.6 billion in border security spending, $1.6 billion of which will be earmarked for Trump’s proposed wall along the U.S.’s southern border.

Israeli Justice Minister Slams White House Map of Israel for Not Including West Bank

With President Trump’s visit already riling several other members of Israel’s far-right government related to whether the Western Wall, which Israel captured militarily in 1967, is occupied, Israeli Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked found a new reason to be outraged, the map of Israel that the White House has been circulating ahead of Trump’s trip.

The White House map is accurate, and that’s the problem from Shaked’s perspective, as she was expecting the White House map to recognize all of the occupied territories, every scrap of the West Bank and the Golan Heights, as Israeli territory.

Right-wing Christians have some insane theories about why the Trump presidency is imploding

In an interview with Steve Strang of Charisma News on Thursday, Bakker warned of an assassination attempt against Trump, given that “the apocalypse has already begun.”

“There’s going to be an attempt on our president’s life very soon,” he stated. “The world is marching in the streets against our president, and it is a war.”

“This is the first horse of the apocalypse,” Bakker promised. “The apocalypse has already begun.”

According to Bakker, Trump’s opposition is “the spirit of the Antichrist,” fighting back against God’s miracle: the election of Trump. The strongest indicator of end times for Bakker was the cancellation of ABC’s “Last Man Standing” last week. The show starred Tim Allen, an anomalyous Trump supporter in Hollywood. Conservatives have blamed Allen’s political leanings for the show’s cancellation, despite offering no evidence to support their claims.

Russians Are Laughing at the U.S., Not Just at Trump

This week, however, the Russian jokes at the expense of the U.S. got positively unpleasant. First, President Vladimir Putin offered to provide the U.S. Congress with a recording of Lavrov's conversation with Trump, in which the U.S. president allegedly revealed highly classified information (the word Putin used, zapis, cannot really be translated as "transcript", as the Kremlin later claimed). The suggestion, of course, was sheer mockery -- it's impossible to imagine the Congress making such a request of Putin, and U.S. legislators tried to answer Putin in kind, Senator Marco Rubio suggesting that if Putin sent the information by email, he "wouldn't click on the attachment."

Why Is The Trump Administration Rewarding Saudi War Crimes With More Weapons?

Soon after that unlawful bombing, the Obama administration suspended the sale of nearly $400 million in weapons to Saudi Arabia.

It was a recognition, a long time in coming, that the coalition’s military campaign in Yemen had devastated the country, killed thousands of civilians, and brought it to the brink of famine.

After the funeral bombing, unlawful airstrikes continued, but the decision to suspend arms sales sent an important message to the Saudis. President Donald Trump, in his first trip abroad as president, is going to send an alternative, deeply troublesome message.

While in Riyadh this weekend, Trump reportedly plans to announce more than $100 billion in arms deals to Saudi Arabia – nearly as much as Barack Obama authorized during his eight years in office.

The deals include Raytheon bombs, Lockheed Martin missile defense systems and BAE combat vehicles, and some of the weapons whose sales had been suspended.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I do not think the new arms are specifically for Yemen, but to fuel a Saudi/Iran proxy war the way the US Government fueled the Iran/Iraq war.

Pat Buchanan Warns A "Debilitating & Potentially Dangerous Time Has Begun" For Trump

“With the stroke of a pen, Rod Rosenstein redeemed his reputation,” writes Dana Milbank of The Washington Post.

What had Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein done to be welcomed home by the Post like the prodigal son?

Without consulting the White House, he sandbagged President Trump, naming a special counsel to take over the investigation of the Russia connection that could prove ruinous to this presidency.

Rod has reinvigorated a tired 10-month investigation that failed to find any collusion between Trump and Russian hacking of the DNC. Not a single indictment had come out of the FBI investigation.

Yet, now a new special counsel, Robert Mueller, former director of the FBI, will slow-walk his way through this same terrain again, searching for clues leading to potentially impeachable offenses. What seemed to be winding down for Trump is now only just beginning to gear up.

Scott Adams: The Short Attention Span President

When I am listening to advice from others, 99% of the time I exhibit a short attention span. The other 1% of the time the advice is worthy of a listen. In that rare case, I can listen all day. Given the situation I just described, would you say I have a short attention span?

Suppose you give me a briefing book with thousands of facts and I only seem to care about three of those facts. And then I succeed at whatever I’m trying to do with my three facts. Given that set of circumstances, would you say I am incompetent?

Part of the fun of watching the press cover President Trump is that they don’t have a leadership filter. Most writers and TV news people have never been leaders in super-complicated industries. President Trump has. And let me tell you a few necessary skills a leader in that situation needs to possess:

Getting Assange: The Untold Story

It may have seemed that way, but there was always serious purpose. In 2008, a secret Pentagon document prepared by the “Cyber Counterintelligence Assessments Branch” foretold a detailed plan to discredit WikiLeaks and smear Assange personally.

The “mission” was to destroy the “trust” that was WikiLeaks’ “centre of gravity”. This would be achieved with threats of “exposure [and] criminal prosecution”. Silencing and criminalising such an unpredictable source of truth-telling was the aim.

Perhaps this was understandable. WikiLeaks has exposed the way America dominates much of human affairs, including its epic crimes, especially in Afghanistan and Iraq: the wholesale, often homicidal killing of civilians and the contempt for sovereignty and international law.

Preparing for the Collapse of the Petrodollar System, Part 2

In part one of this four part article series, I provided a background to our modern petrodollar system by explaining the "dollars for gold" arrangement that was put in place by global leaders through the Bretton Woods conference in the final days of World War II.

The article provided a brief evolution of the Bretton Woods agreement from its inception in 1944 to its ultimate demise in 1971. As detailed, in the late 1960's, this "dollars for gold" system had become unsustainable as Washington insisted upon the adoption of a "welfare state" that relied upon massive entitlements and a "warfare state" that required perpetual wars.

Preparing for the Collapse of the Petrodollar System, Part 1

by Jerry Robinson

Recently, there have been many news headlines containing the words “Iran”, “nuclear capability”, “Syria“, and “Islamic State“. If you listen closely, you can almost hear the drumbeats of a fresh war in the Middle East.

As an economist, I have been trained to view the world through the lens of incentives. (I am a "bottom line" kind of guy.) And just as every action is motivated by an underlying incentive, every decision has a related consequence.

This brief article details the actions, incentives, and related consequences that the United States has created through its attempts to maintain global hegemony through something known as the petrodollar system.

TIME Warns the Russian Orthodox Church Is Taking Over the White House

Things are getting grim in Washington. Apparently the US government is on the verge of being run by Patriarch Kirill of the Russian Orthodox Church.

How else to interpret TIME's new cover picturing the White House getting swallowed by Moscow's Saint Basil's Cathedral?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The corporate media have jumped the shark on this one!

Senior Donald Trump advisor named as 'person of interest' in Russia investigation

A Washington Post investigation revealed someone close to President Trump could be called into hearings as swirling controversy threatens to derail the Republican firebrand’s political ambitions.

But while the person of interest is yet to be confirmed, insiders have claimed the President’s son-in-law Jared Kushner may be implicated in the investigation.

The U.S. is waging a massiveshadow war in Africa, exclusive documents reveal

Six years ago, a deputy commanding general for U.S. Army Special Operations Command gave a conservative estimate of 116 missions being carried out at any one time by Navy SEALs, Army Green Berets, and other special operations forces across the globe.

Today, according to U.S. military documents obtained by VICE News, special operators are carrying out nearly 100 missions at any given time — in Africa alone. It’s the latest sign of the military’s quiet but ever-expanding presence on the continent, one that represents the most dramatic growth in the deployment of America’s elite troops to any region of the globe.

Bob Woodward on Trump-Watergate Comparisons: ‘Let’s See What the Evidence Is’

Fix: The central question seems to me to be, is it an abuse of power for the president to fire the FBI director who is investigating him?

Woodward: Look, the president has that power. Go to the Constitution. It's very clear. Article 2: The executive power of the United States is vested in one person, the president. Not the National Security Council, not the Cabinet, not the White House staff, one person. He can do whatever he wants, within perhaps reasonable limits, so he's got the power.

Mike Cernovich: Trump’s Media Strategy is Failing?—?Here’s How to Fix It

Trump supporters do not read the NY times. Write this onto the blackboard 100 times, The Simpsons opening style, and you’ll understand what you’re about to learn.

If your supporters aren’t reading stories about you, why is your media team spending all of its time responding to those stories?

Jeff Sessions Intent on Including Medical Pot in His Sinister War on Drugs

Medical marijuana, which we thought was safe from the long arm of the feds, got thrown a curve ball with Trump's signing statement on a bill earlier this month, in which the president implied that he would do what he felt like doing when it came to MMJ regardless of state laws and his previous stances.

Given Sessions relentless opposition to medical marijuana ,underscored recently when he said it has been hyped, maybe too much, advocates are worried that the administration is planning a full frontal assault on state MMJ programs, 29 in all.Meanwhile, a Quinnipiac poll last month found that 94 percent of Americans, including 90 percent of Republicans, support medical marijuana.

How does the Trump administration continually get away with blatantly violating the will of the people?

HOUSE REPUBLICAN LEADERS FEAR EVAN MCMULLIN (CIA/GOLDMAN SACHS GUY WHO “RAN FOR PRESIDENT IN 2016”) MAY HAVE SPIED ON THEM

Sources within House Republican leadership told Breitbart News on Thursday that they believe former 2016 presidential candidate Evan McMullin may have spied on them last year, while he was policy director of the House Republican Conference.

Trump denies collusion with Russia but says he 'speaks for himself'

Donald Trump denied any collusion with Russia in the 2016 election but said on Thursday he spoke “for myself”, leaving open for the first time the possibility that some of his staff may have been involved.

The president claimed he was the target of the “greatest witch hunt” in US political history and complained that the campaign against him was dividing the country. But asked about the justice department decision to appoint a special counsel, Robert Mueller, to investigate contacts between his campaign and Russia, Trump appeared to shift his position from previous blanket denials.

Senate Democrats reject Lieberman for FBI director

President Donald Trump may be dramatically miscalculating how much support Sen. Joe Lieberman would have among his former Democratic colleagues if nominated to become FBI director.

Some Senate Democrats hold a grudge against Lieberman for his rightward turn and opposition to some of President Barack Obama's agenda late in his Senate career. Others say even though they respect Lieberman, the job of FBI director should not go to a former politician. And all Democratic senators interviewed for this story said the former Connecticut senator lacks the kind of experience needed for the post.

Lauder vs. Adelson: Which Jewish billionaire has Trump’s ear on Israel?

Who does the first billionaire president go to when he wants real-deal advice? Other billionaires, naturally.

Much has been made of how President Donald Trump has stacked his Cabinet with billionaires, and how he takes off-campus advice from investor Carl Icahn, fellow real estate developer Tom Barrack and media moguls Christopher Ruddy and Rupert Murdoch.

The same goes for his Israel advice: Trump, according to reports, takes calls on the issue from Sheldon Adelson, the casino magnate, and Ronald Lauder, the cosmetics heir and the president of the World Jewish Congress. Both are major supporters of Jewish and pro-Israel causes.

The wrinkle is that Adelson and Lauder seem to be at odds on what they’re telling the president. Lauder, reportedly, is pressing Trump to court Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas. Adelson, reportedly, wants him to focus on moving the US Embassy to Jerusalem and discounts the Palestinians as reliable peace partners.
