RICHARD LITTLEJOHN: When will TV news stop scaring us to death over coronavirus crisis?

Back in 2004, in the run-up to the U.S. Presidential election, I was invited to take part in a special edition of the BBC's Question Time, live from Miami. Your Uncle Rich managed to cause uproar when I described my fellow panellist, the agitprop, anti-Bush, American film-maker Michael Moore, as 'the Lord Haw-Haw of the War on Terror'.

‘Israeli helicopters’ fire missiles at Syrian military sites – state media

Israeli helicopters attacked a number of military positions in southern Syria with missiles, Syrian state media reported, noting the strikes inflicted “limited material damage."

The aircraft bombed sites in the Quneitra and Daraa provinces early on Friday morning after approaching from the occupied Golan Heights, firing some five missiles, according to the Jerusalem Post. A number of unconfirmed reports said the targets included militias allied to Damascus, such as Hezbollah, in addition to the Syrian military.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder just how long Russia's Putin is willing to put up with this Israeli nonsense, before he cuts loose with an industrial-strength "NYET!!", and backs it up with military action.

That’s the spirit! Biden says he’s just a ‘transition candidate’ to put ‘the Mayor Petes of the world’ into office

Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden said he will serve as a “transition candidate” in the 2020 race, arguing his primary role is to funnel new voices and ideas into government – rather than govern himself.
“I view myself as a transition candidate,” Biden said during a virtual fundraising event on Thursday, adding: “My job… is to bring the Mayor Petes of the world into this administration… and even when they don’t come in, their ideas come into this administration.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Folks, if this is the befuddlement Biden is demonstrating in May, heaven help the DNC when he gets into the "home stretch" in November.

Finland Blocks 100-Tonne Load of Pesticide-Tainted Israeli Oranges

Bromopropylate found in Israeli oranges is a pesticide used in repelling ticks and mites found in citrus fruit. It has been banned throughout the EU since 2011.

Following intensified control of oranges imported from Israel, Finland has discovered the presence of bromopropylate, a pesticide banned in the EU, and blocked a 100-tonne load, national broadcaster Yle reported.

In total, eight of the 16 examined consignments were rejected by the Finnish Customs Authorities. The rest were confirmed as safe for consumers and were green-lit for sale.

“We examine the first consignments that arrive in Finland always at the start of a new harvest season. As we discovered problems with the consignments, we decided to continue with controls until the end of the orange harvest season in Israel. Most likely we will also conduct intensified controls during the next harvest season as well”, Jonna Neffing, head of product safety for Finnish Customs stated in a release on Wednesday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Good on Finland; at least THEY care about the quality of food coming into their country.

CIA-Funded Experiments and Psychological Torture Techniques Exposed By Director of New BBC Doc

UN torture expert Nils Melzer drafted a report on psychological torture after previewing a new film on its modern origins. The documentary shows how a well-respected Scottish psychiatrist was covertly funded by the CIA to experiment on his patients in Canada.

Stephen Bennett's documentary Eminent Monsters: A Manual for Modern Torture examines the history of CIA-funded human experiments as part of a "brainwashing" programme codenamed MK Ultra. The results of these experiments would later inform psychological torture techniques used by the British in Northern Ireland and US troops in Iraq, Afghanistan and Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mengele would have been so proud of this guy!!

But there is one thing to consider, when a nation/state uses or outsources torture.

First, it completely destroys that nation's reputation for being a supporter of human rights and human dignity; any statements to the contrary should be met with raucous and unbelieving laughter.

Torture is not used to find any real actionable information, but for "confessions"; people being tortured will say ANYTHING they want their torturers to hear, in order to get their torture to stop. And that is generally "confessions" with which to drive the "engines" of a state-sanctioned narratives.

Torturers love to torture, because they know they can get away with it, when it is state-sanctioned. and are, at the deepest psychological levels, very twisted and sick individuals.

And lastly, when a country tortures, it gives carte blanche to any other country that doesn't particularly like it, to torture both their civilians, and their military; please think about that for a moment.

America The Victim: Are Enemies Lining Up For Revenge In The Wake Of COVID-19?

Authored by Philip Giraldi via The Strategic Culture Foundation,

When in trouble politically, governments have traditionally conjured up a foreign enemy to explain why things are going wrong.

Whatever one chooses to believe about the coronavirus, the fact is that it has resulted in considerable political backlash against a number of governments whose behavior has been perceived as either too extreme or too dilatory. Donald Trump’s White House has taken shots from both directions and the response to the disease has also been pilloried due to repeated gaffes by the president himself. The latest mis-spoke, now being framed by Trump’s press secretary as sarcasm, involved a presidential suggestion that one might consider injecting or imbibing disinfectant to treat the disease, either of which could easily prove lethal.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What we appear to be seeing here, is an out-of-control President, who somehow has never, either in his private life, or his extraordinarily disappointing and thoroughly vilifiable public life, been told that when you screw up, particularly in his role as "Leader of the Free World", one takes responsibility for one's screw ups, listens to true wisdom as to how to fix them, and does the work to do so.

Not this President; he is ready to blame; vilify; sanction; and literally threaten multiple wars across multiple parts of the earth, in order to make it appear that he has utterly no responsibility for the state of the world today, in terms of health, from the global pandemic, and how it has affected the US; geopolitics; or the economy, which has just fallen into the proverbial, undrainable gutter, and may not get up again for a very long, long, time.

I don't know about you, folks, but I cringe at our options this November; on one hand, we have a mentally enfeebled, potential serial sexual predator, who may well, if he wins the election, have to be replaced by his running mate and Vice President shortly after the election, by the invocation of the 25th Amendment to the US Constitution, or... the man currently residing in the oval office, who is pathologically incapable of taking personal, or professional responsibility over the intense, foul harm his presidency has caused this country... and the world.

Swiss Health & Tranquility Law Sparks "Desperate" Snitching To Counter Lockdown-Deniers

A post-corona world has given rise to corona-moral shaming is translating into people snooping and snitching on their neighbors who break social distancing rules to police and town authorities.
SnooSnoo
Folks in Switzerland have taken snooping and snitching to an entirely different level during lockdowns, as many have used private detectives to do their dirty work, reported Reuters.

Christian Sideris, the founder of Seeclop, a Geneva-based private eye, has said requests for snooping on neighbors have been extraordinary, considering people have been confined to their homes for at least a month, many are living in frustrations of others around them.

"We have a lot of these types of cases because people are confined and on top of each other all day," Sideris said, describing some callers as "desperate."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Snooping and snitching..." not the best humankind has to offer, is it?!?

WHO Cuts 80% Of Humanitarian Aid To War-Torn Yemen At Moment COVID-19 Emerges

Authored by Julia Conley via CommonDreams.org,

The United Nations warned Monday that the World Health Organization would likely impose drastic cuts to humanitarian aid in Yemen this week, a move that follows the Trump administration's slashing of funds for the global health agency.

Lise Grande, U.N. humanitarian coordinator for Yemen, said WHO is expected to suspend about 80% of its funding for Yemen's hospitals, primary healthcare programs, and other healthcare needs.

The announcement at a panel hosted by the Center for Strategic and International Studies came two weeks after Yemen reported its first confirmed case of COVID-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus. Although the official number of cases remains low, Al-Monitor reported last week that many cases may have been kept secret from the public and from global health organizations.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This withholding of funds and aid... is genocide writ large, folks.

Pompeo Demands Countries Block Airspace To Iran's 'Terrorist Airline' After Venezuela Deliveries

The US is going on the offensive once again against Venezuela, this time attempting to break up growing Iranian cooperation and assistance to Caracas. The two so-called 'rogue states' recently targeted for US-imposed regime change are helping each other fight coronavirus as well as Washington-led sanctions. Specifically Tehran has ramped up cargo deliveries related getting Venezuela's derelict oil refineries fully operational.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in new statements has called on international allies to block airspace specifically for Iran's Mahan Air, currently under US sanctions, and which has in recent days delivered cargoes of "unknown support" to the Venezuelan government, according to Pompeo's words.

Late last week it was revealed Venezuela received a huge boost in the form of oil refinery materials and chemicals to fix the catalytic cracking unit at the 310,000 barrels-per-day Cardon refinery, essential to the nation's gas production.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Oh holy crud, is Pompeo attempting to pull another "Libya" toward Iran and Venezuela?!?

Please remember what was done here, and why:

Military intervention in Libya

The Wikipedia article goes on to state: "On 19 March 2011, a multi-state NATO-led coalition began a military intervention in Libya, ostensibly to implement United Nations Security Council Resolution 1973, in response to events during the Libyan Civil War. The United Nations' intent and voting was to have "an immediate ceasefire in Libya, including an end to the current attacks against civilians, which it said might constitute crimes against humanity ... imposing a ban on all flights in the country's airspace – a no-fly zone – and tightened sanctions on the [Muammar] Gaddafi regime and its supporters."[26]

American and British naval forces fired over 110 Tomahawk cruise missiles,[27] whereas the French Air Force, British Royal Air Force, and Royal Canadian Air Force[28] undertook sorties across Libya and a naval blockade by Coalition forces.[29] French jets launched air strikes against Libyan Army tanks and vehicles.[30][31] The intervention did not employ foreign ground troops.[32]

The Libyan government response to the campaign was totally ineffectual, with Gaddafi's forces not managing to shoot down a single NATO plane despite the country possessing 30 heavy SAM batteries, 17 medium SAM batteries, 55 light SAM batteries (a total of 400–450 launchers, including 130–150 2K12 Kub launchers and some 9K33 Osa launchers), and 440–600 short-ranged air-defense guns.[14][33] The official names for the interventions by the coalition members are Opération Harmattan by France; Operation Ellamy by the United Kingdom; Operation Mobile for the Canadian participation and Operation Odyssey Dawn for the United States.[34] Italy initially opposed the intervention but then offered to take part in the operations on the condition that NATO took the leadership of the mission instead of individual countries (particularly France). As this condition was later met, Italy shared its bases and intelligence with the allies.[35]"

I would like to remind you of the very sober, and thoroughly terrifying, observation, that those who do not understand history... are doomed to repeat it.

Libya lies in ruins today, still suffering from the horrifically violent upheaval of a civil war which has raged across the country from this military intervention in 2011, well into today, in April of 2020, making it 9 years of civil war.

Can NATO be talked into such a monstrous reality yet again, and if so, could they be demanded/cajoled by Pompeo, in creating another "no-fly", coupled with a "No Sail" zone over Iran and the Persian Gulf, while the OAS is also cajoled/commanded to do the same thing to Venezuela? and if so, how would they enforce it?!?

Please remember: Venezuela left the OAS in April of last year, Venezuela leaves OAS, Claiming that President Trump "Runs Over Member States."

And how will Russia react, if such a thing happens?!?

Remember, Russia assured Iran last year, that if the US attacks it, Iran will not be alone, if the US attacks.

Folks, we are about to be introduced to an alleged, new "Axis of Evil"; I would encourage you to examine those claims before you "jump on the bandwagon here and say, "HELL, yes, let's go to war with Venezuela and Iran, they are colluding like twin halves of an evil empire!!".

Venezuela may not be very useful in a long-term, geopolitical firefight, but Iran is, and would be; Russia's strategy, would then probably be to attempt to make any potential US invasion of Iran draw quick and immediate parallels with the horrific, ultimate ending of the war against Vietnam, in which the US government and military just got "ground down."

The longer I live, the more I understand that both the US government and military, seem to have very difficult challenges in learning from their mistakes; I wish I could see this as being otherwise, but 20th and 21st US history and logic, forbid me from seeing the facts this way.

Top Female Democrats Calling Biden Accuser A Liar

Two powerful Democratic women are calling Joe Biden's sexual assault accuser a liar, in sharp contrast to the #MeToo movement's mantra of 'believe all women.'

Stacey Abrams, who hopes to become Biden's vice presidential pick, and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) - whose father was involved with the NXIVM sex cult which exploited countless women, have both rushed to Biden's defense. Now, instead of 'believe all women,' they're saying that women have the 'right to be heard,' but that they don't believe former Biden staffer Tara Reade's claims that he sexually assaulted her in 1993, according to The Hill.

"I know Joe Biden and I think he’s telling the truth and this did not happen," said Abrams in an appearance on CNN.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Joe Biden, if elected, may well not be the first sexual predator elected to the White House What interview did CBS TV edit for Candidate Clinton?, nor, most probably, will he be the last.

We, unfortunately, want "magical" leadership, without blemish or remorse, and when an accuser lets slip that something did happen negatively, there is a huge massive effort, by both parties, to attempt to bury such behaviour under that proverbial rug, which I don't think should ever happen.

But the utter tone-deafness of the Democratic party here would be hysterically funny, were not the stakes so high in November, and they have some other "behavioural anomalies on the part of Biden which I am sure the Republicans will be dishing up for them as "Ukrainian Scandal Tartare", between now, and the election in November.

FLASHBACK, 2018: Joe Biden Brags At CFR Meeting About Withholding Aid To Ukraine To Force Firing Of Prosecutor

God help us, our "choices" come November for President are absolutely appalling, and I would suggest that there may be, on the Democratic side, some chilling and intense maneuvering (most probably by Hillary Rodham Mc Clinton) for the Vice-Presidential spot.

Come January, or perhaps slightly later in the year, as the effects of mental deterioration becomes unmistakeable for "Uncle Joe", the 25th Amendment may well be invoked to send him to a comfortably padded cell in his estate, and Hillary may be sworn in as President, with (most probably) Nancy Pelosi being sworn in as Vice-President.

And should Trump be re-elected, we will still be saddled with a President who would not understand the concept of true statescraft, even if, in a post-Covid 19 world, it reached out and embraced him.

It appears, from his behaviour to date as President, that President Trump only understands bullying, intimidation, threats and war, as the "only way of getting anything done."

His belligerency and hubris do not bode well for the future of this country or peace in this world, should he get re-elected: and folks, that bites, horrifically.

And I have to ask, is this the actual best the Republicans and Democrats can offer up in this year's election, or does it really matter anyway, because what never gets interrupted... is the way in which the US Deep States ALWAYS "gets what it wants", no matter how its goals will simply grind the lives of ordinary working citizens into the mire?!?

Ever noticed that whenever we vote, at least in the national elections, how very little actually, substantially changes, no matter who the candidates are?!?

Just asking.

Amazon To Use Banned Chinese Firm's Orwellian Thermal Cameras To Scan Workers

A new Reuters investigation published Wednesday has exposed an Amazon-China bombshell, but which perhaps should come as little surprise. Chinese tech utilized in the communist state's own deeply controversial repressive surveillance network monitoring citizens for signs of 'dissent' will now come to an Amazon warehouse near you:

Amazon.com Inc has bought cameras to take temperatures of workers during the coronavirus pandemic from a firm the United States blacklisted over allegations it helped China detain and monitor the Uighurs and other Muslim minorities, three people familiar with the matter told Reuters.

China’s Zhejiang Dahua Technology Co Ltd shipped 1,500 cameras to Amazon this month in a deal valued close to $10 million, one of the people said. At least 500 systems from Dahua - the blacklisted firm - are for Amazon’s use in the United States, another person said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Color me completely unsurprised here; it was only a question of when, not if, such technology would find its way to the USA.

Las Vegas Transforms Casino Into Food Bank As Working Poor Line Up For Miles 

In a post-corona world, Americans returned to some casinos along the Las Vegas Strip, but as we explain in this piece, they are not gambling.

A new, shocking reality has unfolded in a world of social distancing, stay-at-home public health orders, a crashed economy, and tens of millions of people out of work, the rise of America's new breadlines, as we've documented over the last several months, has been reminiscent of the breadlines of the Great Depression.

The Daily Mail, citing local reports from Nevada Public Radio, indicates some casinos in "Sin City" have been transformed into food banks as tens of thousands of working poor have recently become unemployed in the past six weeks thanks to the lockdowns. Many of these folks were employed at casinos, hotels, restaurants, and other non-essential businesses that remain closed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And the hell of it is, with election day coming closer and closer, neither of the candidates for President can fix this, come the first of 2021; In spite of the rhetoric on both sides, neither side of the aisle has a real clue as to what the hell is going on, and what, actually, to do to fix it, there is anything which can fix it.

That leads me to a sister article at this site, with the title: The unseen costs of government-forced lockdowns

Over 275 Days Since Equifax’s Data Breach Settlement and No One Has Been Paid

Have you felt someone owes you money? Last year, credit reporting agency Equifax was rocked by a massive data breach affecting most (56%) Americans. The company agreed to one of the largest settlements of its kind, $700M to be disbursed, covering identity protection monitoring services and direct cash payments to help those whose data had been stolen.

Many of you probably read some of these headlines in the summer of 2019, and many more still filled out the forms after promises of up to $125 per afflicted party. There were several deadlines and additional hoops people had to jump through, but 275 days later: no one has been paid yet, and it’s not clear if they ever will be.
