Never let a crisis go to waste: US lawmakers bask in coronavirus panic while quietly building the police state of their dreams

By Helen Buyniski, RT

As the coronavirus epidemic monopolizes the attention of the American people, government is taking the opportunity to sneak through all manner of restrictive legislation, including a law that could end the internet as we know it.
Killing the internet… to save the children?

The ominously-named EARN IT Act (short for “Eliminating Abusive and Rampant Neglect of Interactive Technologies Act”) that quietly debuted in the Senate earlier this month is a carefully crafted weapon for crushing encryption without explicitly banning, industry professionals have warned. While this particular bill purports to be all about ending child sexual exploitation, the industry is concerned it will make their business model unsustainable - while doing nothing to protect children.

As Coronavirus Death Toll Rises in UK, Has Government ‘Failed to Plan’ or ‘Planned to Fail’?

Why Couldn’t British Government Respond in Time?

Marcus Godwyn, a British political analyst, says: “What is clear is that the government and senior NHS planners have failed to plan or indeed planned to fail. They had two months to see this coming to the British Isles and seem to have prepared absolutely nothing".

“Compare this to the Chinese response which has managed to contain and control the epidemic in its tracks. It is very possible that the Chinese believed in the beginning that the virus was more deadly than it turned out to be and, or that they were under biological warfare attack but the co-ordination and scale of their response is a feat of historical magnitude", he adds.

The National Health Service was already creaking under the strain of an ageing demographic even before the coronavirus hit the UK, two months after it broke out in China.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder how much of what is happening in various countries, world-wide, is not happening with the full support of those who supported the UN Agenda 21.

Agenda 21

Look at the age range, and gender, of those most hard-hit; these would most likely be people who would need some intense "health interventions" in a few years, not that some younger people are also getting hard hit as well, but statistically there are far fewer of them.

From Quarantine To Tyranny To Rebellion: Where Is The Line In The Sand?

Authored by Brandon Smith via Alt-Market.com,

America is in a haze right now. It seems like half the country is in denial of the danger while the other half is awaking from apathy and frantically trying to prepare. This is creating a fog of confusion as one side screams “it's nothing but the flu, stop buying up the grocery store...!”, and the other side just keeps stocking goods, though in an inexperienced way that prioritizes comfort over practicality.

National Guard Deploys In Baltimore As City Enforces Restrictive Curfew: Live Updates

Update (2145ET): Earlier this week, the Military Times confirmed that some 2,000 national guard soldiers had been called up across 23 states, with more on the way.

In Baltimore, military vehicles were spotted on the street.

After thousands of Baltimorians violated a curfew imposed by Gov. Hogan as states around the country crack down on the outbreak.

Meanwhile, the second coronavirus death in Baltimore County (part of the suburbs north, east and west of the city) was confirmed about an hour ago, according to local media reports.

Coronavirus, Vaccines and the Gates Foundation

2017 and Founding of CEPI

A global flu-like pandemic in fact is something that Gates and his well-endowed foundation have spent years preparing for. In 2017 during the Davos World Economic Forum, Gates initiated something called CEPI, the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations, together with the governments of Norway, India, Japan, and Germany, along with the Wellcome Trust of the UK. Its stated purpose is to “accelerate the development of vaccines we’ll need to contain outbreaks” of future epidemics. He noted at the time that “One promising area of vaccine development research is using advances in genomics to map the DNA and RNA of pathogens and make vaccines.” We will return to that.

ESCOBAR: CHINA LOCKED IN HYBRID WAR WITH US

SOURCE: PEPE ESCOBAR VIA THE ASIA TIME
Fallout from Covid-19 outbreak puts Beijing and Washington on a collision course...

Among the myriad, earth-shattering geopolitical effects of coronavirus, one is already graphically evident. China has re-positioned itself. For the first time since the start of Deng Xiaoping’s reforms in 1978, Beijing openly regards the US as a threat, as stated a month ago by Foreign Minister Wang Yi at the Munich Security Conference during the peak of the fight against coronavirus.

Beijing is carefully, incrementally shaping the narrative that, from the beginning of the coronovirus attack, the leadership knew it was under a hybrid war attack. Xi’s terminology is a major clue. He said, on the record, that this was war. And, as a counter-attack, a “people’s war” had to be launched.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Coincidence", when it comes to geopolitics, is something which rarely exists; it is only reasonable, at this point, to demand answers from those who are, intractably, refusing to offer them.

And there is a scarily-worthy companion piece worthy of linking to here, coming to us from defensenews.com:

Esper’s dark vision for US-China conflict makes war more likely

The article goes on to state: "American troops who have seen three, four, even five or more deployments to the Middle East may finally be able to come home — or not. If Esper’s grim vision becomes reality, they may soon be fighting China instead, embarking on a new and far larger conflict that would make Afghanistan look like child’s play, put U.S. security in unnecessary danger and plunge the world into lasting turmoil.

“I would like to [reduce troop levels in Afghanistan] because what I want to do is reallocate forces to” the Asia-Pacific region, Esper said while the U.S.-Taliban agreement was under negotiation. “All of these places where I can free up troops where I could either bring them home to allow them to rest and refit and retrain or/and then reallocate them [to the Asia-Pacific region] to compete with the Chinese, to reassure our allies, to conduct exercises and training.”

The defense secretary also has been conducting a “blank slate review” of U.S. force levels in Africa to the same end, “predominantly to reduce presence” there, he said, so the Pentagon can train its sights on China. And the Air Force described a flight by a nuclear-capable B-52 bomber over Somalia in February as, in part, a warning to China of engagement to come."

And as a final warning, about the currently existing, and escalating, war against China, we have statements from the British journalist, John Pilger, who made the following tweet, prompting a storm of criticism:

"A pandemic is declared, but not for 24,600 dead every day from unnecessary starvation, or 3,000 children dead every day from preventable malaria, or the countless daily dead from America's blockade on Venezuela and Iran and its bombs on Yemen. Before you panic consider them."

Surveillance State Seizes Coronavirus Pandemic as Opportunity to Expand

Following the advice of Rahm Emanuel to “never let a serious crisis go to waste,” the Surveillance Hawks in both government and Big Tech are seizing the “opportunity” provided by the coronavirus pandemic to increase surveillance of citizens.

The Washington Post is reporting:

The U.S. government is in active talks with Facebook, Google and a wide array of tech companies and health experts about how they can use location data gleaned from Americans’ phones to combat the novel coronavirus, including tracking whether people are keeping one another at safe distances to stem the outbreak.

CNN Contributor Rick Wilson Suggests Melania Trump Should ‘Be Infected’ With Coronavirus

CNN contributor Rick Wilson emerged from his parent’s basement long enough to tweet a message suggesting Melania Trump should “be infected” with coronavirus.

Wilson, a former GOP strategist who loves to shower himself with negative attention from Trump supporters and not much else, responded to a CNN article addressing the First Lady’s appearance in several PSAs advising Americans on how they “can protect themselves and those most at risk” of being exposed to the virus.

The gutter-dwelling never-Trumper responded with a simple hashtag playing off the name of Mrs. Trump’s ‘Be Best’ initiative.

“#BeInfected,” he wrote.

The CDC is asking tech giants for access to Americans’ cellphone locations. That way the government can track the location of every American and see whether Americans are properly practicing “social distancing.”
This sounds like a futuristic nightmare in realtime.

Italian Government Study: 99% of their Coronavirus Fatalities Were Already Sick; Half Diagnosed with 3 or More Diseases

"Serious doubts about the accuracy of COVID-19 testing methods, results, mortality rates, and the supposedly unique and extreme lethality of this virus are starting to emerge, even within mainstream media and government reporting. A recent study released by Italy's national health authority found that nearly everyone who was pronounced dead from COVID-19 was already struggling with serious chronic disease(s)."

The Only Pandemic in America Is That of Unbridled Fear and a Total Lack of Intelligent Thought

“I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.” ~ Frank Herbert,

Can the common flu cause people in America and worldwide to lose their minds, and lose all ability to think? Apparently, that is the case, as Americans have gone insane over a new monster created out of thin air called coronavirus. I have anticipated a scenario such as this, and written about it for the past decade or more, but the response by the people of this country is more ridiculous than even I could have imagined. It is the most pathetic sight I have seen in my life.

US House Rams Through Nicaragua Regime-Change Bill with Zero Opposition

Ben Norton reports on the passage of a bipartisan bill that further intensifies the U.S. attack on the Ortega government and received no coverage in the English-language corporate media.

As the Trump administration’s year-long coup attempt against Venezuela spirals out in failure, the U.S. government has taken aim at Nicaragua with increasing ferocity, in a bid to topple its democratically elected, leftist Sandinista government.

Washington’s pressure escalated further on March 9 when the U.S. House of Representatives passed a bipartisan resolution in a voice vote without any opposition that demanded more sanctions and aggressive actions against the Nicaraguan government of President Daniel Ortega.

This bill — which received no coverage in the English-language corporate media — refers to Nicaragua’s elected government as the “Ortega regime,” echoing the bellicose rhetoric of the right-wing opposition.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is apparent to any thinking American with more than 2 brain cells to rub together, that the criminal proclivities of this country know no boundaries, and unfortunately, the current actions against Nicaragua, are only the tip of a very dirty geopolitical iceberg.

INSIDE THE MILITARY'S TOP SECRET PLANS IF CORONAVIRUS CRIPPLES THE GOVERNMENT

Even as President Trump says he tested negative for coronavirus, the COVID-19 pandemic raises the fear that huge swaths of the executive branch or even Congress and the Supreme Court could also be disabled, forcing the implementation of "continuity of government" plans that include evacuating Washington and "devolving" leadership to second-tier officials in remote and quarantined locations.

But Coronavirus is also new territory, where the military itself is vulnerable and the disaster scenarios being contemplated -- including the possibility of widespread domestic violence as a result of food shortages -- are forcing planners to look at what are called "extraordinary circumstances".

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I do not know if this kind of "contingency martial law" scares the hell out of you; because it certainly scares the hell out of me.

What occurs to me is that wonderful line so beloved by Rahm Emanuel; "Never let a good crisis go to waste."

We are looking at draconian controls over Americans, the like of which we have never seen in our lifetimes.

And one has to wonder if the worst case scenario comes from the Covid 19 per se, or the controls which are being contemplated, to be thrown at US society.

FACEBOOK RAMPS UP CORONAVIRUS CENSORSHIP: BLOCKING POSTS ABOUT COVID-19

Facebook has ramped up its censorship campaign, even against mainstream media’s “verified sources” by blocking articles about the coronavirus. Multiple people have experienced the same thing, and this censorship comes the day after Facebook, along with Google, Twitter, Microsoft, LinkedIn, and Reddit issued a joint statement on combatting misinformation on their platforms.

We all know “combating misinformation” is simply code words for censorship and a desire to push the official narrative. But Facebook has been blocking articles from sites such as Medium, Buzzfeed, and USA Today. That’s one of the problems with censorship. Once it starts, no one is safe from seeing their free speech destroyed and the freedom of the press decimated.

Facebook Censoring Ron Paul Based on Bogus Politifact 'Fact-Check'

Social media behemoth Facebook has just acted to censure and suppress Ron Paul's latest weekly column, "The Coronavirus Hoax," based on a hatchet job "fact check" by the notoriously biased "Politifact" organization.

At issue is Dr. Paul's statement that National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases director Anthony Fauci's claim that the coronavirus is "ten times more deadly" than the seasonal influenza virus is “without any scientific basis." Fauci made the claim recently in testimony before the US Congress in a move that significantly ramped up the fear factor in the US over the virus.

The Politifact "fact check" is literally drenched in sarcasm and bias, with Ron Paul being described as "a sometimes conspiracy-minded Texas doctor" and Fauci described as a "universally trusted person."

For a "just the facts" analysis, that's a lot of editorializing.

‘Zionist’ Biden in His Own Words: ‘My Name is Joe Biden, and Everybody Knows I Love Israel’

“I am a Zionist. You don’t have to be a Jew to be a Zionist,” current Democratic Presidential candidate, Joe Biden, said in April 2007, soon before he was chosen to be Barack Obama’s running mate in the 2008 elections.

Biden is, of course, correct, because Zionism is a political movement that is rooted in 20th century nationalism and fascism. Its use of religious dogmas is prompted by political expediency, not spirituality or faith.

Unlike US President, Donald Trump, or Bernie Sanders, Biden’s only serious opponent in the Democratic primaries, Biden’s stand on Israel is rarely examined.

Trump has made his support for Israel the cornerstone of his foreign policy agenda since his inauguration into the White House in January 2017. The American President has basically transformed into Israel’s political genie, granting Tel Aviv all of its wishes in complete defiance of international law.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Again, no matter who one votes for as President in November, US foreign policy toward Israel and the Middle East will not change to one of more even-handedness; fairness; and truly listening to the legitimate complaints of countries in the region against Israeli policies.

So, I have a caveat to share; no matter if Trump or Biden wins this election, be prepared to sacrifice your sons and daughters for more, endless wars in the Middle East, as the US government re-institutes the draft to secure Israel's position in the region.

36-minute video of evidence that Coronavirus is cover for mass arrests: gang arrests to prevent false flag civil war, .01% ‘sick’, quarantine ‘camps’ where sealed indictments are, General Flynn’s lawyer reports massive .01% child sexual abuse

Liz Crokin’s excellent reporting:

https://youtu.be/mSHqb9ctRGk

To repeat the context I see:

March Madness is no more nor less madness than any other month in the Emperor’s New Clothes ongoing human condition to witness naked parading .01% illegal US empire without public demand for “leadership” arrests.

US .01% “leaders” in politics, money, corporate media/public education are criminally complicit in OBVIOUS CRIMES centered in war, poverty, and looting that annually kill millions, harm billions, and loot trillions.

An arrest is the lawful action to stop an apparent crime. One day, Americans will look back and wonder how such flagrant evil was allowed to operate so openly with so few of us demanding arrests. But that day of justice is not yet here, so we messengers continue our calls.

Q is a White House insider (and here) as proven by coordinated posts timed to President Trump Tweets with identical language. Q has promised .01% arrests for 2.5 years.

"Bloody Tuesday": In Unprecedented Move, China Expels All Foreign Journalists Working For NYT, WSJ, WaPo

In the latest escalation of tensions, China announced on Tuesday that it would expel all American journalists working for the New York Times, WSJ and the Washington Post. It also demanded that those outlets - as well as VOA and Time Magazine - provide the Chinese government with detailed information about their operations in the country, the NYT reports. These include "all written materials" including staff finances, operations and real estate information in China.

Experts described the move, which was retaliation for the Trump Administration limiting the numbers of Chinese citizens who can work for Chinese media agencies in the US.

TV Station Broadcasts Biden-Sanders Results Day Before Election

submit to reddit
A television station in Illinois broadcast results from the Joe Biden–Bernie Sanders Democratic Primary contest on Monday–the day before the actual election was scheduled to occur.

Paris, Illinois resident Sherry Daugherty noted the discrepancy in a widely-shared and commented upon Facebook post.

“While watching The Price is Right our station accidentally runs tomorrow’s election results,” she said. “It’s Monday our election in Illinois is tomorrow.”

Local CBS affiliate WCIA ran the graphic showing Biden leading on 50 percent of the vote with 986,341 votes. Sanders had 45 percent of the vote in the WCIA graphic with 893,249 votes.

After Daugherty’s post and other viewer-captured videos of the pre-results were shared, the network immediately caught an intense amount of flak online. Suggestions of vote-rigging and electoral fraud.

Is Washington’s Attack Against Chinese Media a Bad Joke?

If you have monopoly on disseminating information to all corners of the Planet, such cynical approach might actually work.

If only one person is allowed to talk, then what he says could become, inevitably, the truth.

Washington loves to snap at “undemocratic nations”. But the truth is, both the United States and the United Kingdom, in unison, have managed to create a thoroughly and truly undemocratic global system of governance, economic practices and “information” (in fact – disinformation).

What is really behind all this?

Russian, Chinese, Latin American and even Iranian media outlets are becoming extremely influential in the educated circles in the West. It is because many citizens in Europe and the United States do not trust their own media, anymore. They are turning for information to such media outlets as RT, China Daily, CGTN, PressTV, NEO and Telesur.

Clusterfuck Nation – Blog March 16, 2020 Things Have Changed

At least in wartime, the bars stay open.

The mega financial bubble-of-bubbles is deflating with frightful velocity precisely because of the efforts since 2008 to artificially inflate it. The Federal Reserve gave it one final blast Sunday night — while everybody else was counting their rolls of toilet paper — and the effect was like blowing hot air into a shredded Zeppelin.

The stresses mounting on the national scene today reflect the extreme fragilities of the way-of-life we constructed since then, and an awful lot of bad choices we made in the process......

The Coronavirus Hoax

Governments love crises because when the people are fearful they are more willing to give up freedoms for promises that the government will take care of them. After 9/11, for example, Americans accepted the near-total destruction of their civil liberties in the PATRIOT Act’s hollow promises of security.

It is ironic to see the same Democrats who tried to impeach President Trump last month for abuse of power demanding that the Administration grab more power and authority in the name of fighting a virus that thus far has killed less than 100 Americans.

The Coronavirus Hobgoblin

The great H.L. Mencken, a classical liberal when such creatures still existed, once wrote, “The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by an endless series of hobgoblins, most of them imaginary.” I find myself repeating this quote more and more these days.

America, and the rest of the world, is in the throes of a panic that has never been seen before, outside the fanciful scripts of Hollywood. A new “super” virus, the Coronavirus, is being hyped nonstop by our state-controlled media as the new bubonic plague. The fear porn emanating from our television sets is relentless.

Economic Effect of Coronavirus Could Be Revolutionary

Paul Craig Roberts

Coronavirus and globalism will teach us vital lessons. The question is whether we can learn vital lessons that do not serve the ruling interest groups and ideologies.

Coronavirus will teach us that a country without free national health care is severely handicapped. Millions of Americans live paycheck to paycheck. They cannot afford health care premiums, deductions, and copays. Millions have no insurance. This means millions of people infected with coronavirus who cannot get medical help. The morbidity from this is intolerable in any society.

Shutdowns associated with efforts to contain the spread of coronavirus will deny income to millions of Americans who live paycheck to paycheck. What do they do for food, shelter, transportation? You don’t have to think very long along these lines to see a very frightening scenario.

How Many People Have Coronavirus?

The majority of the people stripping items off store shelves know nothing about the virus, and if they did, they wouldn’t care. They’re acting like frothing marauders because other people are, too. “I’ve got to get paper towels and pet food because everyone else is hoarding them.”

Now there’s REAL contagion.Quarantines, lockdowns, the advice to maintain “social distancing,” and wall-to-wall propaganda about “transmission of the virus” have resulted in mass cancelation of public events and the shuttering of large venues. Untold numbers of small businesses are in serious trouble.

This is a direct attack on the economy. It is also a ripping of the right to “peaceably assemble,” one of the natural freedoms embodied in the 1st Amendment to the Constitution. As usual, “the threat to public safety and health” is invoked to override freedoms and rights.

Washington Post hypes fake news on coronavirus ‘burial pits’ in Iran

The Washington Post has turned to publishing fake news about Iran’s response to the coronavirus outbreak, claiming that Iran has dug mass "burial pits" for victims of the disease and was covering the true number of deaths.

As countries across the world grapple with the COVID-19 outbreak, Iran’s struggle to contain the deadly disease has attracted more than usual attention from mainstream outlets in certain countries.

Despite numerous statements from World Health Organization officials praising Iran’s efforts against the outbreak, certain outlets have focused on erringly similar themes regarding Iran; that the country is in chaos, is mishandling the outbreak and that it’s “putting other countries at risk”.

'Entirely Wrong': Google Slams Trump Claims of Nationwide COVID-19 Screening Website

On Friday, Trump declared a national emergency in an attempt to contain the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic in the US. During a press conference he claimed that Google was working with his administration to develop a website that would assist people in determining whether they need to test for the virus and where to go to receive a diagnosis.

Tech giant Google refuted US President Donald Trump’s claims that the company is collaborating with the president's administration to build out a website that would assist Americans in screening for the coronavirus, according to WIRED.

According to the media report, citing an unnamed source, company officials were surprised by the president’s announcement, which is, according to the source, "entirely wrong".

Demented War Criminal, quid pro quo, child-groping, hair-sniffing, gun-grabbing, pathological liar/plagiarist Biden + Sanders rolling over again = President Michelle Obama + VP Barak “The Savior” Obama (Deep State plan?)

77-year-old Joe Biden’s senility is being lampooned so effectively (here, here, here for just three examples) that he will be replaced by either Hillary Clinton (and here) or Michelle Obama.

I bet Obama because the Clintons have taken too much damage among awakening Americans, Michelle doesn’t have that baggage (although perhaps has a package), and Barak can claim his saving idea to “help the people” beside his spouse. This is why Obama and Clinton have not endorsed Joe Biden: they plan to endorse Michelle (Michael?).

That is the best Deep State plan I can imagine, unless something game-changes between now and the summer political conventions, such as mass arrests promised by Q (and here).

The Obama “Hail Mary pass” will happen after Biden’s elder, Bernie Sanders, has his progressive policies destroyed by lying sacks of spin corporate media for:

‘NYT’ publishes Netanyahu’s ‘terror’ smear against Palestinian pols and doesn’t seek their response

Two articles in today’s New York Times show that the paper is belatedly waking up about Palestinian citizens of Israel and their growing role in Israeli elections, but the Times still has a long ways to go before it tells the full truth.

Patrick Kingsley’s report does focus on the Joint List, the coalition of “Arab-led” political parties that increased their strength to 15 seats in the next Israeli Parliament, making it once again the third-largest force in the country. He actually quotes four Palestinian citizens of Israel, who are usually non-persons in the Times, (although he relies for ‘expert analysis’ on Louis Fishman, a professor at Brooklyn College). He also mentions the Joint List’s leader, Ayman Odeh, describing him as “a charismatic lawyer” who possesses “eloquence and approachability.”

MORE CORONAVIRUS CENSORSHIP: SOCIAL MEDIA COMPANIES PARTNER WITH WHO TO CENSOR INFO

Social media companies have made the decision to partner with “health authorities” (government officials like those who work for the CDC) to combat “misinformation” about the coronavirus. We all know what this means. Under the mainstream media’s seemingly innocent words lies a rash of new censorship coming down the pipes.

Only the official narrative from those in the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will soon be allowed on social media.

Pro-Israel Super PAC endorses Joe Biden for president

Democratic Majority for Israel says Biden has a proven record to fight for a strong US-Israeli relationship.

A pro-Israel Democratic super PAC has endorsed Joe Biden for president, underscoring growing antagonism towards Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders among Israel's advocates in the United States.

The endorsement by the Democratic Majority for Israel (DMFI) - which is linked to AIPAC - comes a day ahead of a crucial round of primaries, after Biden took the lead in what has become a two-candidate race for the Democratic nomination.

"As senator and vice president, Joe Biden has proven he will fight for Democrats' broad vision for America, including a strong US-Israeli relationship," DMFI president and founder Mark Mellman, who is a prominent AIPAC strategist, said in a statement on Monday.

IF the US government is not careful, it may find itself defending Israel in wars against neighborhood actors, like Iran, which Israel may well generate, understanding that it has the whole support of the nation-state of the US behind it, even if Russia has Iran's back, both geopolitically, and militarily.

Most Americans Unaware of Largest US War Game in Europe in 25 Years

99.9 percent of citizens of the United States have no clue that the new “Cold War” against Russia is manifesting in the largest U.S. military war practice in Europe than in more than 25 years.

In an effort to generate US national support and publicity for the revival of the Cold War, US military units will come from 15 US states, including important electoral states of Arizona, Florida, Michigan, Nevada, New York, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, and Virginia.

In an effort to spend all the money allocated to the US military, over $680 billion for 2020, 20,000 pieces of equipment will be sent to Europe for the division-size mobilization. The equipment will depart from seaports in politically important electoral states of South Carolina, Georgia, and Texas.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This mobilization is both chilling, in its extent, and an horrendous waste of badly needed money.

For the first time ever, Twitter applied a 'manipulated' tag to a video retweeted by President Donald Trump and shared by his social media director Dan Scavino. Mainstream media critics of the president were really excited at the news, calling the video “deceptively edited.”

In November, Andrew said he was “willing to help any appropriate law enforcement agency with their investigations if required”.

Berman made a similar claim in January, which former sex crimes prosecutors told the Guardian was most likely a move designed to win political support for the investigation.

Buckingham Palace said then it would not comment and the matter was being dealt with by the prince’s legal team. Contacted on Monday, a Palace spokeswoman said: “The issue is being dealt with by the Duke of York’s legal team.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That Prince Andrew has most probably retained this woman, with an absolutely colorful background, when it comes to clients, speaks volumes here.

Apparently, in 21st century Britain, being part of the royal family, means never having to say you're sorry, even if you may be just as guilty as sin for acts which you are now attempting to cover up the best you can; I do feel sorry for Queen Elizabeth; his ex-wife, and his kids, that he could do something like what he is accused of; but sympathy for Prince Andrew?!? Hell, no.

He appears to be purchasing the best defense team money can buy, as did OJ Simpson did with his "Dream Team", when he was accused of murdering his Ex, and her boyfriend; I fully expect the precise, same results here.

But the ultimate effects on the royal family, will wind up far worse than those of Mexhit, as the royal family will be dealing with the stigma of the accusation for a very, very long time.

Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman orders arrests of Saudi Arabia king's brother, an ex-crown prince and a cousin by masked black-clad guards for 'treason' as he consolidates his hold on power

Prince Ahmed bin Abdulaziz al Saud and Prince Mohammed bin Nayef arrested
Over plot to oust king and son, Prince Mohammed bin Salman, reports suggest
Mohammed bin Nayef had been crown prince before his title was taken away
King Salman put his son - Prince Mohammed bin Salman - first in line for throne.

The brother and nephew of Saudi Arabia's King Salman have been arrested over a plot to oust the king and his son, Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

The detentions cast aside the last vestiges of potential opposition to Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and come as the kingdom limits access to Islam's holiest sites in a highly sensitive move to contain the fast-spreading coronavirus.

Prince Ahmed bin Abdulaziz al-Saud, a brother of King Salman, and the monarch's nephew Prince Mohammed bin Nayef were accused of treason.

They were taken from their homes early on Friday by black-clad royal guards, the Wall Street Journal reported, citing unnamed sources.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder; how long before these men get assassinated, and their families are imprisoned for life?!?

And will someone please remind me, about all the LOGICAL REASONS why Bin Salman is one of two of Trump's "BFFS forever" in the Middle East, the other being Israel's Bibi Netanyahu?!?

I am REALLY having a hard time with this, thank you.

THROUGH APPS, NOT WARRANTS, ‘LOCATE X’ ALLOWS FEDERAL LAW ENFORCEMENT TO TRACK PHONES

U.S. law enforcement agencies signed millions of dollars worth of contracts with a Virginia company after it rolled out a powerful tool that uses data from popular mobile apps to track the movement of people's cell phones, according to federal contracting records and six people familiar with the software.

The product, called Locate X and sold by Babel Street, allows investigators to draw a digital fence around an address or area, pinpoint mobile devices that were within that area, and see where else those devices have traveled, going back months, the sources told Protocol.

They said the tool tracks the location of devices anonymously, using data that popular cell phone apps collect to enable features like mapping or targeted ads, or simply to sell it on to data brokers.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is both a dangerous precedent, and yet another, painful example of the reality of how much we have morphed, as a society, from allegedly "Innocent until proven guilty" to a "Guilty until proven innocent, Code Napoleon Throwback law.

President Trump’s re-election campaign filed a libel lawsuit against CNN on Friday for publishing “false and defamatory” statements about seeking Russia’s help in the 2020 election.

"The complaint alleges CNN was aware of the falsity at the time it published them but did so for the intentional purpose of hurting the campaign while misleading its own readers in the process... the campaign filed this lawsuit against CNN and the preceding suits against The New York Times and The Washington Post to hold the publishers accountable for their reckless false reporting and also to establish the truth,” Senior Legal Adviser to Donald J. Trump for President, Inc. Jenna Ellis told Fox News.

The Despicable USA – Theater of Dystopia. A Nation Run by Gangsters

These continuing egregious, lawless crimes around the globe result in the murder, maiming, and displacement of countless human beings in a number of countries. But these crimes are immune from impeachment because they enjoy overwhelming bi-partisan support. Additionally, the President has severely curtailed important life-preserving domestic programs and environmental protections designed to save the health and lives of US citizens, while the Congress yawns.

The obscene, insane annual $125 Trillion bi-partisan military intelligence budget, that includes 17 separate intelligence agencies, pre-empts development of any serious social and physical infrastructure.[3] And, such policy endangers everybody at home and abroad. Who really is the enemy of the US? What is clear is that the US is at war with the world.

Coronavirus: Remember the “Fake” 2009 H1N1 Swine Flu Pandemic: Manipulating the Data to Justify a Worldwide Public Health Emergency

Author’s Introduction

On January 30th 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared a Public Health Emergency of International Concern (PHEIC) in relation to China’s novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) categorized as a viral pneumonia. The virus outbreak was centred in the city of Wuhan, a city in Eastern China with a population in excess of 11 million.

In the week prior to January 30th decision, the WHO Emergency Committee “expressed divergent views”. There were visible divisions within the Committee. On January 30th, a far-reaching decision was taken in an irresponsible fashion without the support of expert opinion at a time when the coronavirus outbreak was limited to Mainland China.

Who Made Coronavirus? Was It the U.S., Israel or China?

The most commonly reported mainstream media account of the creation of the Coronavirus suggests that it was derived from an animal borne microorganism found in a wild bat that was consumed by an ethnic Chinese resident of Wuhan. But there appears to be some evidence to dispute that in that adjacent provinces in China, where wild bats are more numerous, have not experienced major outbreaks of the disease. Because of that and other factors, there has also been considerable speculation that the Coronavirus did not occur naturally through mutation but rather was produced in a laboratory, possibly as a biological warfare agent.

China’s Coronavirus: A Shocking Update. Did The Virus Originate in the US?

The Western media quickly took the stage and laid out the official narrative for the outbreak of the new coronavirus which appeared to have begun in China, claiming it to have originated with animals at a wet market in Wuhan.

In fact the origin was for a long time unknown but it appears likely now, according to Chinese and Japanese reports, that the virus originated elsewhere, from multiple locations, but began to spread widely only after being introduced to the market.

More to the point, it appears that the virus did not originate in China and, according to reports in Japanese and other media, may have originated in the US.

NYT EDITOR & BRIAN WILLIAMS HUMILIATED AFTER SUGGESTING EACH AMERICAN COULD HAVE RECEIVED $1 MILLION FROM BLOOMBERG’S £500M AD SPEND

New York Times editor Mara Gay and MSNBC host Brian Williams faced humiliation after they erroneously suggested that Mike Bloomberg’s $500 million ad spend could have been used to give each American $1 million dollars.

The farce began with a tweet by Mikita Rivas, which some people claimed was satirical, stating, “Bloomberg spent $500 million on ads. The U.S. population is 327 million. He could have given each American $1 million and still have money left over. I feel like a $1 million check would be life-changing for most people. Yet he wasted it all on ads and STILL LOST.”

Ending the Myth that Trump Is Ending the Wars: Trump has sent more new troops to the Middle East than he’s bringing home from Afghanistan.

There was this moment during the State of the Union Address that I can’t stop thinking about.

When President Trump spoke to army wife Amy Wiliams during his speech and told her he’d arranged her husband’s return home from Afghanistan as a “special surprise,” it was difficult to watch.

Sgt. Townsend Williams then descended the stairs to reunite with his family after seven months of deployment. Congress cheered. A military family’s reunion — with its complicated feelings that are typically handled in private or on a base — was used for an applause line.

That gimmick was the only glimpse many Americans will get of the human reality of our wars overseas. There is no such window into the lives or suffering of people in Yemen, Somalia, Afghanistan, or beyond.

That’s unacceptable. And so is the myth that Trump is actually ending the wars.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Given that many of the Trump-Centric Evangelicals in this country are also "End of Time Believers", who believe that it will be only after a massive world war (which humankind MUST bring about) that Jesus' "Second Coming" will happen, coupled with the push by the military industrial complex for wars and more wars, I see both the chances for bringing about the end of existing wars, and not bringing about new ones, is statistically very slight for this administration.

And the hell of it it is, once the Dementocrats finally have nailed down their choices for President and Vice President, whoever they may be, we are still looking at a party which will never "cross the line" in terms of questioning if such a war is necessary, and if there might possibly be other alternatives which would see the US get what it wanted to get, geopolitically, without firing a shot.

So, as usual, at the end of the day, the American voter has utterly zero choice in finding a non-warmonger as their presidential or vice-presidential candidate, because no matter who they vote for, every vote in this Kabuki-like charade, is a vote for more war.; it pains me to say this, but if people are honestly, dispassionately looking at the American Presidential political process, this is the butt-ugly truth, no matter how you describe it.

Turkish Army Posts in Syria’s Idlib Merge With Rebel Positions: Russia says Turkey is violating past deals on Idlib

Turkish-backed Islamist rebels in Northern Syria’s Idlib Province have been getting more and more aid from Turkey to fight against the Syrian government. They are looking for direct Turkish backing by embedding closer and closer to Turkish Army posts. At this point, they’ve effectively merged.

This makes sense for the rebels to do, because having Syria attack al-Qaeda doesn’t look like a problem, but having Syria attack the Turkish military does. Making it less clear which is which ensures that every Syrian military operation is vilified.

Russian officials were critical of this tactic, saying Turkey was violating obligations they’d established in previous deals over Idlib, particularly deals when all those Turkish Army posts were established. This was done specifically so Turkey didn’t do exactly what they’re doing.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

How ever this is happening, it does not auger well for peace; for the Syrian people, and for its government.

Syrian air defenses engaged incoming missiles shortly after midnight local time on Thursday, both near Homs in central Syria and Quneitra in the south, on the armistice line with the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights. Following the attack, reports appeared that at least two flights – one passenger, one cargo – had to change course to avoid getting struck by air defense missiles.

CORONAVIRUS VS. THE MASS SURVEILLANCE STATE: WHICH POSES THE GREATER THREAT?

SOURCE: JOHN W. WHITEHEAD
“If, as it seems, we are in the process of becoming a totalitarian society in which the state apparatus is all-powerful, the ethics most important for the survival of the true, free, human individual would be: cheat, lie, evade, fake it, be elsewhere, forge documents, build improved electronic gadgets in your garage that’ll outwit the gadgets used by the authorities.”—Philip K. Dick

Emboldened by the citizenry’s inattention and willingness to tolerate its abuses, the government has weaponized one national crisis after another in order to expands its powers.

The war on terror, the war on drugs, the war on illegal immigration, asset forfeiture schemes, road safety schemes, school safety schemes, eminent domain: all of these programs started out as legitimate responses to pressing concerns and have since become weapons of compliance and control in the police state’s hands.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Much of what happens in China's future, depends on its military; how loyal it will continue to be to a centralized government, which continues to abuse its people and act with an incredible degree of hubris, , or develop a new-found loyalty to the Chinese people themselves, suffering under the boot-heel of oppression.; and right now, that issue is up for grabs.

Assad Joins Forces With Libya’s Hafter to Combat Turkey: East Libya govt will open embassy in Damascus

While recent generations have shown them reluctant to expand far beyond their borders, in the past few months Turkey has shown interest in overseas military engagements. Forces have been active in northern Syria with an eye toward regime change, and Turkey has also committed to military involvement in Libya.

That’s given Turkey two potential enemies to worry about, and given them each a potential new ally. The Syrian government and Libya’s self-proclaimed Libyan National Army (LNA) or Gen. Khalifa Haftar have agreed to cooperation, and a memorandum of understanding to confront Turkish aggression.

The LNA’s adjoining government, the eastern-based Tobruk Parliament, has confirmed it will be opening an embassy in Damascus. This will be the first Libyan embassy in Syria since the 2012 NATO-imposed regime change in Libya.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is one of the most significant developments regarding Libya, that you will almost never hear about, courtesy of the Corporate Presstitutes.

A very very curious, but astute, article appeared in mid-January of this year,from fp, and titled: Russia’s Role in the Libyan Civil War Gives It Leverage Over Europe

It then states that "recent joint Russian-Turkish summit in Moscow aimed at forging a cease-fire in Libya broke down after the Libyan warlord Khalifa Haftar left without signing the proposed truce agreement. One of Haftar’s main backers is Russia, and his unwillingness to sign on to the deal raises important questions about not only the degree of influence Russia actually has in Libya, but also how serious it is about bringing an end to the conflict.

Russia first rose to prominence in Libya in September 2019 after it deployed mercenaries to the front lines of Tripoli to back Haftar, sparking concern in the United States and Europe that the Kremlin had finally thrown its hat into Libya’s civil war. Its presence in Libya was strikingly reminiscent of the decisive role it played in Syria, where it backed the regime of President Bashar al-Assad to brutal effect and essentially saved the regime from collapse."

but if Syria (and Russia) are bringing force to bear against the current UN/proxy military government in Tripoli, which Erdogan is claiming he is fighting to defend, we have a couple of potential outcomes, both lousy, for US involvement here.

The first is a triumphant Haftar, after taking Tripoli, and the rest of the country, calling for new elections, and throwing the delegitimized UN government out, and the question has to be asked; what is the US government actually willing to do to prevent this, in light of the fact that Russia is siding with Haftar?!?

The second is a prolonged US/NATO-led military against Haftar and the Russians, which could well turn Libya into another US Vietnam, with the same ultimate outcome as this war had.

And what concerns me, is that those in the Bowels of Power in this country appear to be sleepwalking into this trap, just as blissfully as did the US government in World War I.

One of the most brilliant films about war ever to have been made, is the 2nd Robert Downey Jr./Jude Law film about Sherlock Holmes; the title is "A Game of Shadows", and if you have not seen it, I urge you to do so, because it talks in very plain language, about just how regional wars like this get fanned, until they become world wars; this is the potential impact of Al Assad throwing his geopolitical fortunes with Russia, in supporting Haftar in Libya.

Erdogan’s Dance of Death With NATO

Although the evidence is murky, it appears that both Russian and Syrian jet fighters took part in the Feb. 27 attack on a Turkish mechanized infantry battalion consisting of roughly 400 soldiers. According to an account in Al-Monitor, two Syrian Sukhoi SU-22 pounded the convoy, forcing the troops to take cover. But then a pair of Russian Sukhoi SU-34s dropped advanced laser-guided bunker-buster bombs on two roadside buildings where Turkish forces had taken shelter, burying them in the rubble.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And the US government has responded accordingly, according to an article in msn.com, datelined today:U.S. promises Turkey ammunition for Syria's Idlib battle

The article goes on to state:

U.S. promises Turkey ammunition for Syria's Idlib battle

The United States is willing to give NATO ally Turkey ammunition alongside humanitarian assistance in northwestern Syria where Ankara is in a deepening standoff with Russia, the U.S. special representative for the region said on Tuesday. Lucy Fielder reports."

As I have mentioned on this site many times before, just because something is the most ham-fistedly, pig-headedly stupid thing the US government can do, is no guarantee that it will not do it; I am very concerned that President Trump may well rue the day he and his Cabinet decided that this was the "right way" of handling Erdogan's "military misadventures" in Syria.

ACLU SUES TO END ICE’S RIGGED ALGORITHM FOR DETAINING IMMIGRANTS

SOURCE: THE INTERCEPT
IN 2013, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement quietly began using a software tool to recommend whether people arrested over immigration violations should be let go after 48 hours or detained. The software’s algorithm supposedly pored over a variety of risk factors before outputting a decision.

A new lawsuit, however, filed by the New York Civil Liberties Union and Bronx Defenders, alleges that the algorithm doesn’t really make a decision, at least not one that can result in a detainee being released. Instead, the groups said, it’s an unconstitutional cudgel that’s been rigged to detain virtually everyone ICE’s New York Field Office brings in, even when the government itself believes they present a minimal threat to public safety.

“The federal government’s sweeping detention dragnet means that people who pose no flight or safety risk are being jailed as a matter of course — in an unlawful trend that is getting worse.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have a question here; are these detainees here illegally, or legally?!?

IF, in fact, they are here illegally, are they already not breaking the law?!?

And IF, in fact, these detainees are here illegally, what is New York's ACLU ready to do, in terms of paying for unfunded mandates, required by the City of New York, in order to feed, clothe, and house these people, to say nothing of educating their kids, many of whom speak absolutely zero English?!?

Now please don't get me wrong; I love that Emma Lazarus poem, beginning with the words, "Give me your tired, your poor; your huddled masses yearning to breathe free;" but folks, that was written in 1883, and just... a little has changed in this country since then, including a desperate need for skilled labor, which our schools seem pathologically incapable of turning out.

It is completely reasonable, at this point in the 21st century, for the US government to demand that those who immigrate to this country, have skills; speak a standard English; and not be a financial burden on this country, much as does the Australian immigration system, which gives good people with skills a shot at the "brass ring" of Australian citizenship.

Why should we not insist on inviting "the best of the best" immigrants to become US citizens?!?

I see absolutely zero reason why we should not.

And if you can think of any, please let me know!! :-)
