Caspian deal an antidote to Washington’s bullyboy tactics

At a time of increased bullying of others by the United States, the five-nation Caspian Sea deal signed earlier this week shows the importance of diplomacy for mutual benefit and security.

While the Trump administration is winding up international tensions across the globe with its penchant for slapping sanctions and tariffs on other nations, the breakthrough development over the Caspian Sea points to how multilateral accord can be achieved, and peace between countries maintained.

For over 20 years, the seashore nations of Azerbaijan, Iran, Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan and Russia have been locked in dispute over territorial rights governing the Caspian – the world’s largest inland body of water.

But last Sunday, the leaders of the five countries signed a landmark legal convention which formulates a compromise on sharing the benefits – and responsibilities – of the sea’s rich resources.

"No more lamps, no more candles, no more extension cords," he said as about two dozen power workers completed the connection to his home.

2-minute summary video: Pennsylvania Attorney General releases grand jury report documenting 301 pedophile priests raping 1000s of children, church ‘secret archive’ to hide/continue OBVIOUS crimes, backing similar evidence on UK PM Ted Heath, Bushes

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

“We subpoenaed, and reviewed, half a million pages of internal diocesan documents. They contained credible allegations against over three hundred predator priests. Over one thousand child victims were identifiable, from the church's own records. We believe that the real number of children whose records were lost, or who were afraid ever to come forward is in the thousands.

Most of the victims were boys; but there were girls too. Some were teens; many were pre-pubescent. Some were manipulated with alcohol or pornography. Some were made to masturbate their assailants, or were groped by them. Some were raped orally, some vaginally, some anally. But all of them were brushed aside, in every part of the state, by church leaders who preferred to protect the abusers and their institution above all.” ~ Introduction: Grand Jury report released by PA AG Josh Shapiro after two years’ investigation

Revealed: Experts warned two years ago that 50-year-old 'uneven' Genoa bridge should be demolished because no one would pay for its 'exorbitant' maintenance - as Transport Minister says those responsible for 35 deaths 'will have to pay'

The motorway bridge which collapsed in Genoa, Italy, killing at least 35 people had been the subject of a series of 'exorbitant' maintenance works and had been causing issues for decades, it has emerged.

Engineering experts had warned that it would have been more cost effective to knock the bridge down than to continue to repair the 'uneven' construction.

The Morandi Bridge, built in 1967, was a main thoroughfare connecting the A10 and A7 highways and had therefore been heavily trafficked for more than 50 years.

Tuesday morning was no different, and dozens of cars fell several hundred feet when a 260ft section of the concrete bridge collapsed shortly after 11.30am.

Cooperate Or Die: In Private Meeting, Top Facebook Exec Threatened News Outlets

During a closed-door and off-the-record meeting last week, top Facebook executive Campbell Brown reportedly warned news publishers that refusal to cooperate with the tech behemoth's efforts to "revitalize journalism" will leave media outlets dying "like in a hospice."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is why the independent media is really important right now, and so worthy of support, both informationally and financially.

Because Brown's call to "revitalize journalism", is nothing more than a not so subtle, in your face threat, that the presstitutes and whorespondents can be broken, forever, by not adhering completely to the narrative of the nation-state, and any countering argument to that narrative must be ground down into the dirt, permanently and immediately.

So no, Mr. Brown: WRH refuses to do this, and we have suffered intensely from the financial, social, and intellectual stigmas associated with not carrying the Unhinged, Surveilled State of Amerika's water for it.

Yes, the siren song of the money, and opportunities available after becoming "the US Deep State's bitch" can still be heard, sotto voce; but just like listening to the song of a mermaid, trying to lure a sailor to their death, when you understand how completely expendable ordinary working people are to the inner workings of the monied who rule this country, the ethical costs of such a switch in perspective, are simply too great to bear.

Twitter To "Suspend Accounts For Trying To Evade Suspension"

Having seemingly distracted the world, briefly, from being caught 'shadowbanning' conservatives (or should we say "using quality filters"), by outright-banning other right-leaning individuals (Alex Jones and Peter van Buren forever; and Candace Owen and Ron Paul Institute's Daniel McAdams temporarily), it appears Twitter's CEO Jack Dorsey has a cunning plan for purging the rest of the world's naysayers from his platform.

"This week, we are suspending accounts for attempting to evade an account suspension. These accounts were previously suspended for abusive behavior or evading a previous suspension, and are not allowed to continue using Twitter."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

With the next month, I am hoping that people, not wanting to have their websites chosen for them, with others are suppressed, will be flocking to alternatives to twitter, and that this will render Twitter thoroughly... irrelevant.

Korean Leaders Agree to New September Summit in Pyongyang

Following two hours of meetings between top North and South Korean officials on Monday, the two sides announced that an agreement has been reached to hold a third summit in September. The summit will be in Pyongyang, though the exact date has not been announced.

Kim Jong-un and Moon Jae-in first met in April in the demilitarized zone, and then held a more informal summit in late May. At the time, officials on both sides suggested more summits were likely in the future.

As with the late May summit, this one comes amid signs that US-North Korea diplomacy is stumbling. South Korea has been advising the US on how to make progress, though often the US has rejected proposals that involve making any concessions.

North Korea is known to want a peace deal ending the 1950 Korean War, and the US is seen as resistant to the idea. The South Korean government has been pretty open about wanting peace too, however, and may try to get the process moving irrespective of US reticence.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The one thing both Koreas should do, and immediately, is reunify, putting an end to US threats and meddling in the region.

Once Korea is reunified, the US government cannot but treat it as a sovereign, undivided country, unless it characterizes the whole place 'a newly minted rogue nation.", and go after it as a whole entity.

And the optics on such a move would be horrifically awful.

US Dropped Mutual Assurances of Non-Meddling from Helsinki Declaration – Reports

The United States rejected a Russian offer to include mutual assurances of non-interference in polls from a proposed joint declaration at the Helsinki summit, media said.

Russia suggested adding a clause that would call cyberattacks on critical infrastructure – power grids, water pumps, banks and hospitals – unacceptable, three Russian and US officials told the Kommersant newspaper.

Sources said Moscow had proposed "joint measures to prevent the use of cyberspace to destabilize internal political processes, including elections." The United States initially agreed to sign the joint declaration but then rowed back on it.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Please note that it was the US government which rejected such language.

Antifa Vows “Bullets” For Political Enemies; Media Ignores Threat

Far left group’s open incitement to violence gets zero press coverage.

The mainstream media completely failed to report on Antifa members in DC yesterday, some of whom went on to assault police officers, carrying a banner which openly advertised their intention to put bullets in their political enemies.

Numerous video clips and photos show Antifa members carrying a large black banner which reads, “It takes a bullet to bash a fash.”

In another clip, leftists are asked what they would do if they met President Trump.

“I would murder him,” answered one, while another said, “We’d have to do him like Gaddafi.”

I asked leftist progressives outside the White House today what they would do if they met President Trump.
Their answers:
•"I would murder him."
•"We'd have to do him like Gaddafi."
•"If I get a chance to fuck him up I would."
•"Beat his ass."

At 69 years of age, and a Christian composer, conductor, and pacifist activist, I am thoroughly astonished to see how far the left in this country is willing to play out the violence card.

And in looking this story up, because in clicking the title (and from a lot of resources) I got a "404 Error"; item not found.

The fact that it has been pulled from so many sources had to be a deliberate act by our "thought police", but I ultimately found the article nonetheless, at prisonplanet.com

Although there are times when I grouse about not finding enough talent here on the island to get my musical works recorded well, or heard here, right now, I am very grateful to Heaven that Mike and I are here rather than living on the mainland; were we there, we probably would have been assassinated by now.

And no, I am not kidding about that.

Hawaii is a very blue state, but people here can talk about politics, but not tear each others' hair out in the process, even when we do think differently about it; that is a real blessing.

Brazil seizes 1.3 tonnes of cocaine on Italian ship reportedly attacked by pirates

Brazilian authorities said on Monday August 13th that they seized 1.32 metric tonnes (2,910 pounds) of cocaine aboard an Italian-flagged ship in Brazil's main port of Santos, near Sao Paulo.

"The drugs were divided into 1,202 tablets distributed in 41 sacks" in two containers on the Grande Francia ship, which had arrived from Argentina, the customs department said.

According to G1 news site, the ship was attacked by pirates on Sunday. However it was unclear whether the incident was connected to the drugs discovery.

How The US Government Legally Stole Millions From Kim Dotcom

About a month ago we covered the basics of the lawsuit by which the US government was seeking to keep pretty much all of Kim Dotcom’s assets, despite the fact that Dotcom himself hasn’t been tried — and, in fact, it hasn’t even been determined if he can be extradited to the United States (a country he’s never visited). This week, that case took another step, with the judge, Liam O’Grady, who had already ruled that Kim Dotcom could be considered a “fugitive,” more or less finalizing the theft of Dotcom’s assets by declaring a default judgment in favor of the US. This isn’t the end of the process (not by a longshot), but it highlights just how the US government can use some ridiculous procedures to steal millions in assets from someone who hasn’t been shown to be guilty of anything.

The Real Reasons Peter Strzok was Fired from the FBI

There are certainly more than just the anti-Trump text messages sent by former FBI Special Agent Peter Strzok that led the second in command at the FBI to fire him. FBI Deputy Director David Bowdich actually overruled a recommendation by the bureau’s Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR) to suspend and demote the former senior agent, and instead, terminated Strzok on Friday.

Former FBI special agents, some of whom worked with OPR for years, said they agree with Bodwich’s decision. They told SaraACarter.com that the system is broken and Bodwich had no other choice but to step in and fire Strzok. They say political leanings, friendships and dual systems of justice inside OPR have plagued how cases regarding FBI agents are adjudicated and handled.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am hoping and praying that President Trump will absolutely fire everyone in the FBI who has not lived up to their Oath to Congress, and will replace them with people who will do that, and right the heck now!!

2016 Trump Tower Meeting Looks Increasingly Like a Setup by Russian and Clinton Operatives

The June 2016 Trump Tower meeting between high-ranking members of the Republican presidential campaign staff and a Russian lawyer with Kremlin ties remains the cornerstone of claims that Donald Trump colluded with Russia to steal the election.

A growing body of evidence, however, indicates that the meeting may have been a setup -- part of a broad effort to tarnish the Trump campaign involving Hillary Clinton operatives employed by Kremlin-linked figures and Department of Justice officials. This view, that the real collusion may have taken place among those who arranged the meeting rather than the Trump officials who agreed to attend it, is supported by two disparate lines of evidence pulled together for the first time here: newly released records and a pattern of efforts to connect the Trump campaign to Russia.

Webmaster's Commentary:

JUDGE ORDERS RELEASE OF ‘MUSLIM SCHOOL SHOOTING TRAINING CAMP’ SUSPECTS AFTER CHARGES OF RACISM

Judge Sarah Backus ordered the release of five suspects accused of running a “school shooting training camp” after one of their attorneys said they’re only being targeted because they’re “black and Muslim,” as opposed to “white and Christian.”

“Many people here live in unconventional ways,” Judge Baukus said.

“The NRA right now are telling us that guns are a good thing and that we should be training our teenagers to go ahead and use them, but now that we have someone who’s actually do that, and they’re not white, and they’re not Christian we think there’s some nefarious plan,” one of the suspects other attorneys told the media outside the court.

From CNN:

The evidence was intended to paint a disturbing picture of a zealous family training for a violent mission against government institutions, New Mexico prosecutors said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

How about the one dead kid, and the 11 starving children?!?

No crimes here, right, Judge Sarah Backus?!? Starvation and murder are not crimes against minor children in this country, if the family is Muslim, right?!?

With this release from prison by this Judge, one has to speculate if this guy wasn't hired by elements of the Deep State to teach his kids to do school shootings, as a way of imposing a total and complete gun ban on American citizens.

I fully expect all charges here to be dropped; the guy got caught before he could finish his intended work, and the case will no longer see the light of day in the media.

Anyone who tells you the recent escalation of censorship by U.S. tech giants is merely a reflection of private companies making independent decisions is either lying or dangerously ignorant.

In the case of Facebook, the road from pseudo-platform to willing and enthusiastic tool of establishment power players is fairly straightforward. It really got going earlier this year when issues surrounding egregious privacy violations in the case of Cambridge Analytica (stuff that had been going on for years) could finally be linked to the Trump campaign. It was at this point that powerful and nefarious forces spotted an opportunity to leverage the company’s gigantic influence in distributing news and opinion for their own ends. Rather than hold executives to account and break up the company, the choice was made to commandeer and weaponize the platform. This is where we stand today.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is only one thing to do with the unholy triumverate of Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube: ignore them as though they were the plague, and take a look at their upcoming competitors, like GAB! Yandex, and DuckDuckGo.

This is not to say that ultimately, these outlets won't get bought out, but at least for the time being, they are reasonably open, and don't track where you have been on these sites.

Ajit Pai loses in court—FCC can’t kill broadband subsidy in Tribal areas

A US appeals court has blocked the Federal Communications Commission's attempt to take a broadband subsidy away from Tribal areas.

The FCC decision, originally slated to take effect later this year, would have made it difficult or impossible for Tribal residents to obtain a $25-per-month Lifeline subsidy that reduces the cost of Internet or phone service for poor people. But on Friday, a court stayed the FCC decision pending appeal, saying that Tribal organizations and small wireless carriers are likely to win their case against the commission.

FCC stands by decision to raise broadband prices on American Indians

Good for our First Nation Americans on this!!

AN 11-YEAR-OLD HACKED A MOCK FLORIDA ELECTION SITE IN 10 MINUTES

The security of the U.S. election system just lost a vote of confidence.

At the annual hacker conference DefCon, Emmett Brewer, an 11-year-old boy from Austin, Texas, was able to change the results on a mock Florida election website. It took him 10 minutes.

Though the website in question was a mere replica of the Florida Secretary of State website, the hack points to the larger vulnerabilities of the election infrastructure in the U.S. On the heels of Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. election, Microsoft has already detected evidence of Russian interference in three races in the 2018 mid-terms.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It took this 11 year old kid 10 minutes to change the outcome of a mock-up of Florida's electronic voting system?!?

Folks, if we ever need to give these voting machines the deep-six, and restore paper ballots, now is the time.

And particularly in the upcoming midterms, we cannot allow Voter ID to be considered criminal, in any way, shape, or form!!

THERE'S A FENTANYL CRISIS IN THE UNITED STATES. NEBRASKA IS ABOUT TO MURDER SOMEONE WITH IT ON PURPOSE

If only "states with the death penalty spent half as much time developing policy to support people in their lives as they did figuring out ways to kill people"

As Nebraska prepares to complete its first state-sanctioned execution in two decades, human rights groups are condemning the death penalty and denouncing officials for operating under a "cloak of secrecy" in obtaining the drugs that will be used to kill Carey Dean Moore—substances that have caused tens of thousands of accidental deaths across the U.S. in recent years.

Amnesty International denounced the state's move to participate in "the ultimate denial of human rights" after having carried out no executions since 1997.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF you have never seen the film "Dead Man Walking", featuring Susan Sarandon as Sister Prejean, and Sean Penn as the guy about to be executed, please do yourself a favor, and record it/buy it. If you still think that summary execution for murderers, even in the most "kind and humanitarian way possible" is absolutely the right thing to do, this movie.... just may change your mind and heart, particularly if you are a brother or sister Christian.

This Catholic nun has been one of the most ardent activists against the death penalty in the United States, and I have absolute utter respect for her.

I do not believe in executions for murder, and before you label me a namby-pamby leftist sychophant on this issue, I would like to politely remind you, that the chain of evidence in this country is horrifically vulnerable to misuse, neglect, and damage.

If you don't believe me, take a look at what The Innocence Project in Texas is doing.

The Innocence Project

For murder, I would suggest a national standard of life imprisonment with zero possibility of parole; these people cannot be allowed to kill again.

OH LOOK, YET MORE EFFORTS TO STRANGLE BROADBAND COMPETITION

A major component of the Telecommunications Act of 1996 was the idea of line sharing, or local loop unbundling. Simply put, the rules set forth required that incumbent telcos needed to share their networks with smaller competitors, providing wholesale access to bandwidth. It was an effort to foster something vaguely resembling competition in the broadband space by letting smaller companies piggyback on existing network infrastructure. The thought was that because the barriers to market entry were so high (both politically and financially), this could help smaller competitors gain footholds that would otherwise be impossible.

The effort didn't work out for several reasons.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Here on Oahu, we are stuck with Spectrum, which promises much, in those multi-million commercials, featuring the voice of the comedian, Ellen De Generes, but actually delivers very little of what it promises.

When cable companies do not have to compete, they don't have to give a damn about the true quality of their service, or if there is even a modicum of public satisfaction with it.
