"'Congress shall make no law respecting an institution of religion.' -- The First Amendment to the Constitution

A Nativity scene (or a Menorah for that matter) is not a law, it is a decoration. And on that basis, even though I myself am an atheist, I do not have a problem with Nativity scenes on government property, other than they are a reminder that those are the people we are bombing to steal their oil.

I do draw the line at the Ten Commandments being on display on government buildings with its prohibitions against lying, theft, and killing, as that clearly is a case of false advertising!" -- Michael Rivero

Coronavirus: South Korea placed on ‘red alert’ as fifth person diesMore than 9,000 Shincheonji church members in self-quarantine as president describes coming days as ‘very important moment’

South Korea’s president Moon Jae-in has placed the country on “red alert” after it reported its fifth death and more than 123 new coronavirus cases, taking the total number of infected to 556.

As the nation struggled on Sunday to contain the deadly Covid-19 outbreak in the city of Daegu, the president described the coming days as “a very important moment”, the news agency Yonhap said.

The government would bolster its fight against the virus by raising the alert level one notch to the highest of “red”, he told an emergency meeting of agencies in Seoul on Sunday.

Of the 123 new cases, 75 are related to the Shincheonji church in the country’s fourth-largest city of Daegu and a neighbouring hospital.

The Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said it has placed more than 9,000 Shincheonji members in self-quarantine and thousands of worshippers have been screened for the virus.

US bars entry to researcher who exposes Israeli rights abuses
Maureen Clare Murphy Rights and Accountability 21 February 2020

The US has effectively denied entry to Eyal Weizman, founder of the research group Forensic Architecture.

Forensic Architecture, based in the UK, uses groundbreaking methodologies such as digital forensics and spatial analysis to expose human rights abuses. The group has published several investigations concerning Israeli violations against Palestinians.

Weizman, who holds Israeli and British passports, was due to travel to the US for Forensic Architecture’s first major survey in the country at Miami Dade College’s Museum of Art and Design. The exhibition, titled Forensic Architecture: True to Scale, opened on Thursday and runs through late September.

Today in History: FDR Issues Executive Order Creating American Concentration CampsBy: Dave Benner|Published on: Feb 19, 2020|Categories: History

On this date in 1942, Franklin Roosevelt signed the infamous executive order 9066, authorizing the War Department to establish military zones that would serve as internment camps for mostly Japanese and Italian Americans.

After the United States entered World War II, the president felt that the presence of foreign nationals could not be tolerated in time of war, and would produce seditious and rebellious behavior:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Many, particularly internment camp members from Hawaii, never got anything back, in terms of money, or lands they may have owned before their internment; it was, at worst, a cynical land and money grab, many times from Asian citizens who never did - or would have - hurt this country in any way.

Saudi Arabia Says It Intercepted Several Missiles From Yemen

Saudi Arabia’s state media has reported that they intercepted several missiles Friday which were fired from northern Yemen. They say the missiles were deliberately aimed at civilians, accusing the Houthis of turning the Yemeni capital of Sanaa into a hub for missiles.

The Houthis confirmed their strikes, saying they hit targets in Saudi Arabia “with precision” and that Saudi Aramco was struck. Aramco made no comments on the incident, and Saudi reports similarly made no mention of them being hit.

In the past, successful Houthi attacks on Saudi Arabia have been blamed more or less entirely on Iran. Saudi coalition officials this time are trying to emphasize the Houthi “threat” to civilians to justify the ongoing war.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Saudis need to stop attempting to position themselves as "a force for good" in Yemen, when they are methodically slaughtering infants; toddlers; children; women; and the medically fragile elderly, then attempting to blame the Houthis for these assassinations.

It's not working; even the American people are awake enough to understand who the "bad guy" is here, and that ... is saying something.

Pompeo Stresses Iranian Threat in Saudi Visit, Meets New Sultan in Oman

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has been on a world tour that brought him to Munich, parts of Africa and, most recently, Saudi Arabia and Oman. Not surprisingly, Pompeo’s visit to the two Gulf countries was mostly focused on countering Iran, although he was forced to address the issue of imprisoned US citizens inside Saudi Arabia.

Before traveling to Saudi Arabia, Pompeo talked to reporters in Ethiopia on Wednesday about the Trump administration’s “maximum pressure” campaign against Iran. “The pressure campaign continues. It’s not just an economic pressure campaign, it’s diplomatic pressures, isolation through diplomacy, as well,” Pompeo said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

More sound and fury, on the part of Pompeo against Iran, signifying.... absolutely nothing.

What, please, has Iran done to the world to make it the world's enemy, except to thrive economically, after the 1979 Revolution?!?

The short answer is, nothing.

And before it gets pulled from English speaking audiences, please bop over to the English language version of www.presstv.com, and see just what the Iranians are saying about themselves, and about world affairs.

I would politely suggest to both Israel's Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu, and the US's President Trump, that although Iranian leadership may be many things (including being a theocracy, as is Israel Israel has evolved from democracy to theocracy) , one of them is not wild-ass crazy; they will not do something overtly aggressive, because they understand that should they do something stupid, it will result in that country being melted into green glass by a joint US/Israeli nuclear strike against it.

As Turkey Escalates Syria Fight, Growing Pressure for US to Get InvolvedTurkey wants US warplanes, Patriot missiles in Idlib

Turkey continues to step up fighting in northern Syria, running up against Russian forces, and giving the appearance of an imminent war in the Idlib Province. Turkey’s willingness to escalate seems to have been picked up by US encouragement, and now Turkey seems to be leading the call to get the US dragged into this conflict as well.

US interests in the Idlib Province are virtually non-existent. Any US-backed rebels that were once there have been wiped out, or aligned to some Islamist group long ago. Arguments for intervention are that Idlib is becoming a flashpoint between Russia and Turkey.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation: Turkey, looking at its battered and flagging options in Syria, against Syrian and Russian military push-back, wants war between the US and Russia in Syria.

And we have a companion piece on this issue, also from anti-war.com,featuring the following headline: As Syria’s War Escalates, Growing Risks of Regional Turmoil:
Conflict increasingly centered around major foreign actors

The article goes on to state: "This week of fighting in northeastern Syria saw a disturbing escalation, with Turkey bringing itself more directly into the war, and several other foreign powers at risk of being dragged in as well.

Turkey’s commitment to prevent Syria from winning the war has threatened to turn this into a border war, and there are a lot of regional interests that could be involved. Russia has warned Turkey away and almost certainly is going to limit how far Turkey can go before they directly intervene to stop them.

That’s already a substantial fight, and with Turkey trying to get the US directly involved in this part of Syria, it could kick off direct military confrontation between the US and Russia. The US has been publicly endorsing Turkey’s action, but it remains to be seen if they’ll get themselves drawn into a war over it."

Unfortunately, just because something is the most monumentally ham-fistedly, pig-headedly stupid thing the US government and military could possibly do, is utterly no guarantee that the US will not do it.

I am quite certain that one of the world's best "Trump Whisperers", Bibi Netanyahu, facing one of the most contentious political fights for his life, come the Israeli elections in early March, is "encouraging" Trump to take this idiotic step, toward "regime change" in Damascus, no matter even if it will mean war with Russia, even though the US military is woefully unprepared, under-staffed, and dealing with inferior weaponry, in attempting such a task.

Mr. President: I am respectfully requesting that you NOT commit to a war in Syria at this time. Our military is stretched to the limit with regard to personnel; there is no money, no manufacturing, and no real weaponry advantage we have over the Russian military at this time, and anyone with any horse-sense on this issue, will tell you so, no matter how angry that will probably make you at this time.

And if what I am telling you regarding the status of the US military is the butt-ugly truth right now, (and sir, forgive me, but it is), you have a national, and moral, obligation to fix it: please do so, and right the hell now.

You are welcome, Mr. President.

"Biggest Humanitarian Horror Story Of The 21st Century": Up To A Million Refugees Trying To Flee Idlib

The ongoing final battle for Idlib could unleash the biggest refugee exodus the nine-year war has seen, United Nations officials are warning.

Recent statements from the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs puts the latest wave of civilian displacement since December 1 at 700,000.

Turkey's Erdogan is now petitioning the US and NATO to given military assistance against the rapidly advancing Syrian Army backed by Russian air power. International reports suggest up to one million internally displaced persons are now surging toward the Turkish border.

The Wall Street Journal reports that "Families in northwestern Syria are trapped between the advancing Syrian military — backed by Russian airstrikes and pro-Iranian militias — and Turkey."

The report notes Turkey has sealed the border using its military:

"The border is closed to refugees, secured by walls, trenches and guards who have shot people trying to cross without permission," according to the WSJ.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Of course, the Wall Street Journal will not mention what the US has supported here for years; that would really eviscerate the narrative that "Whoever the US sponsors, are always the good guys."

There are no easy answers here; but that being said, the US is horrifically culpable in this humanitarian catastrophe, having supported/armed/financed alleged "Syrian moderate rebels" ( read: ISIS, Al Qaeda) for years here.

Italy becomes Europe’s largest coronavirus hot spot with 2 deaths & 79 cases across 5 regions

The number of confirmed Covid-19 coronavirus cases has soared to at least 79 in Italy, forcing authorities to introduce increasingly strict containment and quarantine measures in the northern regions of Lombardy and Veneto.
A 78-year-old man died near Padua in the Veneto region on Friday night, becoming the second victim of the virus in Italy, after a 76-year-old woman was found dead on Thursday 50km south of Milan.

At least 17 people have been confirmed infected in Veneto so far, including the latest victim’s wife and daughter, as authorities are still mulling whether the Carnival of Venice events should be cancelled. In neighboring Lombardy, there are 54 cases, including one in Milan – a city with a population of 1.4 million, where Women’s Fashion Week is currently taking place.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Prayers for the families and friends of those affected; but again, China's scientists, and the world's scientists, need to work together, with complete transparency, to determine what the hell happened; develop and fast-track a vaccine; and figure out how to prevent such a slate-wiper from ever rearing its ugly head again.

As to whether this will happen, is anyone's guess; but logically, this is what should happen.

Erdogan, Putin, Merkel and Macron to Meet March 5 on Idlib

The Turkish, Russian, German and French leaders will meet on March 5 to try to find a solution to the crisis in the city of Idlib as Turkey and Russian-backed Syrian forces risk confrontation in the region.

Following phone calls with Russian President Vladimir Putin, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Emmanuel Macron, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Saturday that he will meet them all on March 5, without disclosing the location. As Turkey slides toward war, Ankara has appealed to the U.S. and its European allies for support in a conflict that risks undermining the friendly ties he’s built with Moscow.

READ: Turkey and Russia Near Breaking Point in Syrian Standoff

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder just what kinds of back-channel communications are going on here, between Ankara and DC; because the US still wants al-Assad out of Damascus, has Turkey been promised some kind of quid pro quo, for keeping Turkish, and Turkish-backed rebels in Idlib, no matter the costs from Syrian and Russian military?!?

Looking at the apparent madness of Edrogan's stand and demands here, this is almost the only thing which makes sense.

YOUTUBE BANS CHRISTIAN BROADCASTER TRUNEWS FOR 'HATE SPEECH'

Christian pastor Rick Wiles' channel TruNews was permanently banned from Google-owned YouTube on Thursday for "hate speech."

TruNews has been banned permanently from Youtube.

1,198 people are talking about this

"It was only a matter of time, YouTube finally canceled our channel," Wiles said on his show Thursday. "What was our crime? They accused us of hate speech."

"Of course, there is no such thing as hate speech -- it's a crime that was invented by the political left several decades ago," he said. "What it really means is free speech that somebody doesn't like."

Wiles said the "final nail in the coffin" according to YouTube was their February 12 interview with Israeli News Live's Steve and Jana Ben-Nun titled, "Christianity Vs. Evangelical Zionism."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I do not wish to conjecture about "the gates of hell", but I would like to suggest that Pastor Wiles, and his brother and sister Christian broadcasters, need to gather at the "gates of pragmatism".

There are going to be some real, and radical improvements in radio signal distribution, which will not need huge budgets, offices, or studios, but will ultimately reach out to a far greater number of people than current technology will allow; this is the "wave" Christian broadcasters need to be riding, and about which they need to educate themselves and their staffs.

And major congrats to YouTube, and your CEO, Sundar Pichai, for having become this government's Surveillance Arm; all that money you receive, for stomping down people with whom you, and this government, disagree so vehemently, that you shut people out for "non-conforming" ideas, must be ... comforting; at least for now.

TRUMP APPOINTS PRO-ISRAEL, ANTI-IRAN AMB. RICHARD GRENELL AS ACTING INTELLIGENCE CHIEF

SOURCE: CHRIS MENAHAN, INFORMATION LIBERATION
President Donald Trump on Wednesday appointed US Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell as the acting director of national intelligence, making him the first openly gay person to serve in a cabinet-level position.

Donald J. Trump
?
@realDonaldTrump
Thank you to our great US Ambassador to Germany, @RichardGrenell, for stepping in to serve as acting DNI. I will be nominating a terrific candidate for the job very soon. Stay tuned!

As The Jerusalem Post reports, Grenell is known for his "pro-Israel and anti-Iran" stances.

"For Israel's security and defense establishment, Grenell's hawkish views towards Iran's regime will be welcomed with open arms," Foundation for Defense of Democracies fellow Benjamin Weinthal said.

Though Grenell officially serves as the US' ambassador to Germany, one might assume by looking at his Twitter feed that he was Israel's ambassador to America.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This absolutely does not augur well for peace in the Middle East, at all; but peace, of course, is utterly not what either Netanyahu nor President Trump wants to see happen here, but a massive "regime change" in Tehran, to be brought about "by any means necessary".

I would, however, like to politely remind Prime Minister Netanyahu; President Trump; and Acting DNI Grennell, of the following, reported in the English language version of the Moscow Times last summer:

Iran ‘Won’t Be Alone’ If U.S. Attacks, Russian Official Says

The article goes on to state: "“Iran will withstand this type of fight and Iran is not alone,” Zamir Kabulov, the Foreign Ministry’s special envoy for Asian countries including Iran, said at a Russian-Iranian policy forum in Moscow.

When asked if Russia was ready to provide material support to Iran if the U.S. attacks it, Kabulov said that “specific actions are a question for the Russian president.”

“But it’s not just Russia, many other countries sympathize and empathize with Iran,” the Kommersant business daily quoted him as saying. “Tehran won’t be alone if the U.S., God forbid, takes wild and irresponsible actions against it.”

So, gentlemen, there you have it; should the US(and/or Israel) attack Iran, Russia, and some other, yet to be identified regional players, will be working with Iran to stop such a campaign.

If Kabulov has made the Iranian diplomats who attended this conference such a promise, you can bet it came directly down from "the boss", Vlad Putin; career politicians like Kabulov do not even fart, without Putin's express permission.

So, gentlemen, war with Russia over.... Iran?!?

Would someone please, run a cost/benefit analysis of what such a US military campaign would cost, in American blood and money?!?

And President Trump, are you willing to bet the future of your political party on such a dicey prospect, at the end of your first term, or the beginning of your second?!?

And are you willing to face the political consequences of having to reintroduce the draft, which this time, according to legislation quietly ready for implementation, will be coming not only for our young men, but also for our young women as well?!?

I would hope that the answer here will be, "HELL, no!!"

Rove's Reality

How could Rove’s predictions so totally materialize? There’s a simple answer: ‘they’ got away with momentous lies at an early stage. The more authorities lie successfully the more they are likely to lie again in a big way to serve the purposes of earlier lies. The ‘they’ stands for those individuals and groups in the power system who operate beyond legal limits as a hydra-headed entity, whose coordination depends on the project, campaign, mission, or operation at hand. Those with much power got away with excessive extralegal use of it since the beginning of this century because systems of holding the powerful to account have crumbled on both sides of the Atlantic. Hence, potential opposition to what the reality architects were doing dwindled to almost nothing. At the same time, people whose job or personal inclination leads them to ferret out truth were made to feel guilty for pursuing it.

The State and Heresy

The key text for Christians is chapter 13 of St. Paul’s Epistle to the Romans, which begins: “You must all obey the governing authorities. Since all government comes from God, the civil authorities were appointed by God, and so anyone who resists authority is rebelling against God’s decision, and such an act is bound to be punished.

Today almost nobody holds the position of Romans 13 in its full rigor, if that means a duty of unqualified submission to whatever regime happens to exist. Nearly all Christians distinguish between legitimate and illegitimate regimes; if rebellion is always a sin, how can we have a duty to obey the successful rebel when he assumes power? Must we obey the tsar one day, and the Lenin who topples him the next? Does Paul mean to say: “Thou shalt obey anyone who holds coercive power over thee”?

Just last week, though, I was in Lao Cai, where each day I could stroll along the Red or Nanxi River and see what the Chinese were doing on their streets and balconies, or inside their windows. Along the bank of the Red River, a few men were fishing against a green backdrop of towering wild grass and bamboos. I fleetingly glimpsed two women walking their dogs.

Most of the time, though, there was no life.

Chuck Baldwin - This is ZOG (Zionist Occupational Gov't.)

While US troops are fighting Israel's wars abroad, the homeland has been conquered not by arms, but by money. How should Americans respond to being subjugated?

by Chuck Baldwin
(Abridged by henrymakow.com)
. The entire political debate in America centers on the left-right paradigm. If you are a Republican, Democrats are the enemy; if you are a Democrat, Republicans are the enemy. The entire political world revolves around this notion.

It's all a game, a façade, a hoax.

Here's how it works: When the ruling class wants to focus on building a socialist Welfare state, dismantling traditional cultural and religious norms and enacting gun control, it puts liberal Democrats in power. And when it wants to focus on building the Warfare State and creating foreign enemies for the purpose of expanding the "war on terror" and a global surveillance state, it puts conservative Republicans in charge.

2/7/20 Danny Sjursen on America’s Coming Battle for Eurasia

Danny Sjursen is back for part two of his conversation with Scott about America’s foreign policy disasters, this time focusing on what Sjursen calls “the coming battle for Eurasia.” According to an old theory of geopolitics, the power that controls central Eurasia—that is, eastern Europe and parts of the Middle East, with all its natural resources and strategic position—will be the dominant global hegemon. Obviously, certain figures in the American government would like to be in that position. The problem, Sjursen points out, is that America is way too far away to have any business trying to do this, especially while countries like Russia and China might have an interest in trying to stop us. He says that based on his experience in the military, people seem to think the U.S. could wage a conventional war with tanks, infantry, and aircraft carriers against other world powers, without resorting to nuclear weapons.
